Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

There are so many resources shared that it is simply amazing. Here are the ones I have gathered this week and there are way too many. I've tried to give credit, beginning a day after i started this week's effort. But lol you know what it is like to be flying around this site trying to do everything while realizing you can only touch on a few things in the time you have available :)

innovation comes from a deep understanding of traditions and the real

needs of the the people you are working with. It´s not about helping,

it´s about collaboration and innovating respecting cultural traditions

and not trying to impose external cultural values."

Great job!!! +1 Collaboration!!!
Comment by Bongumusa on March 22, 2010 at 10:03am
You provide us with information. You advice and inspire us to remains good human beings. You are here as the mentor for all. But all in all, you seems to be more mentally and socially matured. You know the world around you. You have shown that you are a people's persons regardless of competition and many factors. You have feeded me with new experience to see the world differently. You seems to be Unique in doing things. Your Ideas are good. I hope and wish that you were supposed to be one who speak about Ethics because of your non-racial and unfavorism when making decisions. You keep us on the network regardless of our bad behaviour and believes. I wish if all of us we are like this we will enjoy the game. Even though understand that Game is full of threats, but not insults. You deserves +3 on collaboration for making peace and creating a good network.

Thank you all for your comments and kind words. Collaboration means working TOGETHER to achieve goals. Karamveer Lalh, I gather the URLS from the blog posts I read that seem useful or offer information that might be of help as we move down the path of change. I keep a text file open, copy/paste the URL and then lmao spend 30 minutes to an hour formatting the URLS for a post. I look at each URL to determine value to you. You can certainly pass the blog or copy/paste URLS to your groups.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
