Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So is it worth it? Should we be using all these bottles? Honestly?

You decide. Then tell me your thoughts on the issue.

this has been discussed several times on the site. now, i dont expect you to link to all of them, but maybe link to two different threads of conversation? or i could find it, and link it here, but..... information overload. its sad. you cant find things so easily, even with tags.

findability. the challenge of findability.

bottled water is very controversial. and Fiji is just one example. there are several examples of bottled water companies doing less than ethical things. the question is: what will the politicians do about it? :)

The polititians do nada. It would seem they are more worried about the economy than the people. In some areas of Fujairah (where I lived for a few years) you would often see people refilling massive containers of water for selling, out of a tap from a dodgy looking truck.

Yeah, I already tried looking for some of the threads, and couldn't find any very good ones ^^

You could connect with Michelle about this maybe. Form a team. Add 2-3 others. Here is a blog post she wrote about water.

It's a corrupt business, and it will likely stick around as long as people are willing to charge people for water- like in night clubs where you're charged $3 a bottle. I'd rather be charged a dollar for getting a cup of water they got from their tap- that's friendlier for the environment, keeps the bottled water companies out of the loop, and puts pure profit in their pockets.

That might be a fun initiative to push- Bottles Out, Cups Up- save the water!

+1 collaboration good discussion starting. Linking the "found" discussuions together might be good.
Bottles will continue as long as useful, profitable, convenient and sold.

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.
