ALCHEMY: "I see..."

UN OFFICIAL #1: "Your success rate is amazing."

PANEL D: Setting/Picture: UN Headquarters.

PANEL C: Setting/Picture: Eureka and Cipher.

CIPHER: "Bright minds research and seek more information... If they look beyond this article I will make sure they will find reliable information."

PANEL C: Setting/Picture: Zalmai and Namir close up.

ZALMAI: "We do believe in our people and we have been trying to help them as best we can starting with President Hamid Karzai's work in the early 2000s. Public Health Minister Mohammad Amin Fatemi brought great change to the health system but it still needs help today."

NAMIR: "And don't forget Minister of Education, Ghulam Farooq Wardag. He was well liked among the government officials. We understand that our government 10 years ago was not perfect but it helped start change... we would like to now bring the ultimate results."

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 food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…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.
