i liked your point about resourcefulness. getting things done, even with few resources. thanks for sharing.

and oh - politics in Nigeria - - yeah, i would stay far away from that as well!

Yes, resourcefulness is indeed the key to innovation. I think it is important to keep our eyes open to what is going on around us as you will be surprised at what goes on noticed. Especially in the developing countries, there is much to be done. For example in Nigeria, continuous electricity supply is unheard of and yet the people have gotten so used to this abnormal reality. You may think this is strange coming from a country that is the 8th largest exporter of oil in the world and a country who also sits right next to the equator where sun shines 24/7, 365 days a year....

isnt the problem with the oil wealth coming from the oil that it only benefits the elite in the country?

Yes one of the major problems is the presence of corruption at the top of the pyramid but also another important issue is the inefficient use of the resources available. Soo much oil goes to waste during exploration exercises. Furthermore, there is an over reliance in oil and as a result other sectors are being abandoned even though the resources are present

Yoou've got a start on your vision. Politics can be dangerous, get rich and you will be in politics. Look to how you can stay in the background doing useful tasks that mo0ve you towards your goals. I think you are right. innovation comes from facing feww resources(or none) and getting things done, because you have to find a way. +1 vision

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**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
