Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Some more Scout Report links for you all to enjoy.

OECD Factblog: http://scout.wisc.edu/Archives/SPT--FullRecord.php?ResourceId=27893

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is well known for their vast store of research papers and related items,
but they are now entering the blogosphere, albeit in their own erudite
fashion. Their "Factblog" brings together graphs, charts, and videos to
offer insightful commentary on pressing policy issues and global
transformations. Visitors can glance over recent posts, which as of
late, have included discussions of China's share of the global economy
and the social and economic status of women. With each post, visitors
will also find links to other related material from the OECD and other
international organizations. Also, visitors can browse through their
archive of posts back to July 2008 and, of course, they can subscribe to
the RSS feed.

U of California Sustainable Ag Research and Ed Program: http://scout.wisc.edu/Archives/SPT--FullRecord.php?ResourceId=27895

The University of California has created a wonderfully informative website with the aim to "provide leadership and support for scientific
research and education in agricultural and food systems that are
economically viable, conserve natural resources and biodiversity." The
site is for ranchers and farmers in regard to production and marketing,
but is also for the rural and urban communities to better their
understanding of the need for and desirability of using and supporting
sustainable agricultural practices. Visitors will find that the last
three links on the menu on the left side of the page contain resources
for farmers that are essential when it comes to sustainable agriculture:
"Cover Crops", "PestCast", and "Soil Quality". The "PestCast" is
particularly interesting, as it introduces a new technology to forecast
crop disease via a computer-based model. Under the "Resources" heading
on the left side menu, there is a link to a seasonal "Newsletter",
simply titled "Sustainable Agriculture" to which visitors can subscribe.

Richard Throssel Photographs of Crow American Indians: http://scout.wisc.edu/Archives/SPT--FullRecord.php?ResourceId=27901

Born in Marengo, Washington in 1882, Richard Throssel entered the world of photography at the age of 20. He had recently moved to the Crow
Reservation in Montana, and he quickly became interested in taking
photographs of the people and the land around him. Throssel would remain
on the reservation until 1911, and he took over 1000 photos of Crow
Indian life before he left. This digital collection from the American
Heritage Center at the University of Wyoming presents over 570 of his
images. Visitors can browse the collection by subject or date, and each
item contains a complete bibliographical record. As one might expect,
visitors can zoom in and out around the photo as they see fit in order
to look for various details and nuances.

"I love that you've brought this to attention. An extensive database of uncommon but resistant and hardy plants/foods could be developed and organized by climate. Ease of growth and processing should also be taken in to account. I will try to…"

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.
