Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Agent Amanda Jeffreys has made an awesome player-generated game to help source more points - concentrating on explaing the evocation powers themselves. Thats great lateral thinking!

This blog post started it all: http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/game1-play-power-evocation

COURAGE PROFILE : GEORGE CAFFENTZIS

In George Caffentzis's "The World Bank and the Double Crisis of African Universities"

(http://www.edu-factory.org/edu15/webjournal/n0/Caffentzis.pdf),

... a shocking portrait of greed and anti-democratic social control is painted. They punish Univerisities for teaching economics, law or social sciences. They demand low student numbers. Then, they position themselves as the major source of income outside of the Government. This is politics, yes, but politics arising from the irrefutable. These things are happening, and they happen because of the World Bank.

George is standing up to the entrenched interests that damage the developing world. He is standing up for the rights of people who will not otherwise get a voice. He is telling a story that can barely be heard - rich people gouging the poor so that their favourite system or organising suffering - capitalism - will win another piece of land.

That's a particularly horrible ploy going on there, Christian. Thank you for giving it a bit more exposure. Also, I like your writing style - conversational and eloquent too!

Thanks Amanda! I like your writing too. I'm a big believer that the best thing we can do to help the developing world is stop abuses by those in the developed world. I'll be blogging and providing evidence throughout EVOKE to cover the activities of this group, and developing ideas on how to stop them.

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

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.
