Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Nothing is more important than family. Everything starts there. We strive to protect. We strive to provide. And we fail and we succeed. As we move from existence through that bare survival stage that rarely allows thoughts beyond immediate needs, we progress to increasing awareness, desires, hopes-and fears of losing everything-to education opportunities, job opportunities and whatever degree of success we find.

Along the way we are hit with all kinds of “the unexpected” whether it be politics, government interventions, illnesses, plagues, natural disasters or man made disasters.

We must overcome it all. Sometimes sliding back to mere existence for a time. We ARE the family of humanity. Even when we cannot see beyond our daily existence. That is where collaboration is key. We must bring people together. But HOW?

Groups, URLS, networking, personal contact are all parts of the solution leading to collaboration. As we look around the goals and evidence provided range greatly even within the confines of this game. Just as they do in Real Life.

Here are the URLS I have gathered so far within the game, from many sources, some named, most not. Thanks to all who have posted them..

+1 knowlege share. In Kenya we define family rather broadly to include our village, our clans etc. If someone from my rural village was to come to the city, it is not uncommon for them to be sent to live with me even if I have never met the person simply because we come from the same place. If we consider members of the global village or family we will likely be kinder to each other.

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.
