Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

In my community food security is not issue, but that does not mean that people are not dying from laco kf adequate nutrition. Very few people where I live are not able to afford decent and nutritious food, but that doesn’t mean they do

I see four main issues:

* People don't know decent food when they see it

* People prefer to spend their money on other stuff than edible food

* People are lazy

* It is too easy to make excuses

It starts with people not knowing what to eat. While it is true that you can easily blow half a paycheck on one visit to Wh*** Foods, there are alternatives to that and most supermarkets have reasonably decent food at prices that are generally affordable. However, you have to spend some money on getting food that does not kill you and if you don’t have a lot of money, but need to buy all the plastic junk your neighbors have and all the garbage on the shopping channel, you are likely to have little money left to buy decent food. What is worse is that most of the bad food is “convenient”. Convenient is another word for “lazier than is good for you”. You don’t need to cook, you don’t need to wash the dishes, and you don’t even need to chew. People here can easily ingest the calorie daily intake of an African family in one evening on the sofa. At the same time the daily caloric expenditure has dropped precipitously. People take their care everywhere instead of walking and now supermarkets have electric carts for people who are too chubby to walk safely. Meanwhile you don’t even have to make excuses for being overweight and lazy; the companies selling the junk to you do that for you. It is considered rude to confront people with the truth if it is uncomfortable.

I don’t think any of this is to change any time soon. People with healthy eating habits and the ones without seem to see each other now only at the supermarket check out and with the trend towards organic supermarkets and healthy restaurants continuing, even that may be soon a thing of the past.

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

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.
