Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Exercise is something that most people tend to do, or at everyone should do, so as to live a healthy life, as along with eating right, and drinking water, exercise is important to staying in shape, and feeling good. So it is a natural thing to then use the exercise we do to create power, thereby letting our exercise have a double benefit to both ourselves and to the energy we need to power a fan, something that I use everyday, especially in the two places I call home, that is Grahamstown, South Africa and Dubai, UAE. A fan is something everybody enjoys in the extreme heat of South Africa, especially after a good 3-4 km run. So by attaching the new “Exercise For Power” device to one’s arm, or anywhere on ones body, before performing any exercise, one can then store up enough power to use a fan after performing that exercise. It works through kinetic energy stored up through the exercise, and the friction that the body causes. There are certain ratios for however long one exercises to how long the fan goes for. This device may seem trivial, but in a very hot climate is very desired. And the great part is, is that if one does not wish to use the power stored up in the fan, it can also work in L.E.D. lights!(only)

this sounds interesting. i currently live in south korea, where people are crazy about exercise. although it's a very modern city, efficient capture and re-use of energy would definitely promote a greener lifestyle. i think there could more more functional uses for such energy than powering fans, even, or it perhaps could be used WHILE running. water heater for post-run shower? re-charge mp3 player (even charging as you run?) cooling down your water bottle?

I like the idea here

All the exercise machines that people use should be attached to generators. Running on treadmills would allow us to capture more of that biofuel than running outside on trails, though the scenery is not as nice or varied, depending on where you live.

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.
