Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

This picture is devastating. After a 4 year drought in Kenya, the people are forced to dig giant h***s in the river bed just to find water. Water from the ocean can be brought to them to drink, but first must go through the process of desalination. This converts sea water to drinking water. Maybe an orginization can make desalination plants along the ocean.

The trajedy with Africa is the ever-increasing gap between rich and poor. We turn on own. The moment we get out of the situation all we can do is send our regards and boast about our new lavish lifestyles. The people of Africa need to become proactive in their own lives and stop expecting the West to keep bailing them out!

Hey Jake, first I see the word KENYA then the picture is frm AMREF where i work! Couldn't not give a point for this :). There are tablets available in Kenya that will make almost any water clear and drinkable. The challenge is that (1) many people do not know about this tablets and (2) although relatively inexpensive, many still cannot afford them.

Woah....The image you posted is very sad. That reminded me of the time I was volunteering in rural Kenya, I was teaching English in kenya and there were another group of volunteers building water purification systems. I have to say that, that period of time was really an eye opener for me, which made me appreciate and value things in life I usually take for granted.

I am glad to hear that Cornelia :). I went to an Indian reservation once and volunteered. It was an eye opener for me as well.

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
