Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Water pumping with a bicycle or purificate water with a bicycle?

I present two inventions can solve at least in part the water problem.

Personally I love both of the them, because my country have enough water ( we have a lot of Reservations of underground water and many rivers with sweet water), the problem is the contamination and the distribution of it.

1) System of water pumping with a bicycle - A great Idea!!

A Rotary Club in Zaragoza Spain developed a System of water pumping with a bicycle, the three properties were there it can function with almost without effort, with a little maintain and low cost. The inventions allows pump 500 lts. of water by hour. This invention could help developing countries in agriculture and another areas.
You can read about it in the next link.


Another interesting presentations about water security, goals and help.

2) Water system with pedal (I love this one, I probably make it my Act4 - Will see)

The winning Aquaduct Mobile Filtration vehicle was designed to help people living in developing countries, who often do not have access to clean water. The Aquaduct vehicle transports water and cleans it while
in motion. Many women in developing countries need to walk great distances in order to bring water to their families. The new vehicle offers an easier way to cover these distances, and is intended to reducethe pollution caused by motorbikes or trucks used for water transportation.

Thats brilliant! People keep wanting to power electrical things with bike pedals, but its MECHANICAL energy that bikes make in spades. Solutions like this really show how force multipliers work. Great share!

Anything that is bike powered makes any human powered mechanism so much fun and easy to fix. We already have bikes in pretty much all over the planet and we have the knowledge to fix them and adapt them. Excelentes ideas Gilda!!!

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***tances 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.

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
