Manual vacc** cleaner - Can we rebuild it? Do we have the technology?

After completing this week's ACT mission, it got me thinking a little. So here's the deal. I live in an apartment with horrible wall-to-wall carpeting. I also live in the Middle East. Here (and in…Continue

Shopping Day, 2020

It's March 10th, 2020; more importantly, it's Tuesday.

Tuesday is shopping day, and like other residents of my neighbourhood I use my computer or mobile device to access the website of our neighbourhood's co-operative online grocery store. We usually wouldn't order anything through the internet - there's really no alternative to touching the vegetables to see if they're fresh and to checking the expiry dates on milk products to make sure that you don't get swindled. But this…

Storing Excess Power for a Rainy Day

Out planet is full to the brim with energy we can utilize. Life, sunshine, rainfall, geological forces and wind are but a few, and we're constantly learning cheaper and more efficient ways to harness these energies to fuel up our power grid. The most promising energy resource for my country is solar energy. Solar water boilers have been widely used here since the 1960s, and the rooftops of rural homes are slowly being covered with photoelectic panels.

Here's the problem, though: solar…

December 2020 - A Very Oily Hanukkah

Today is the last evening of Hanukkah. Christmas is less than a week away, and the Christian areas of Jerusalem are already decorated with shining Christmas lights. My family is out today, like many others, to see festive lights of a different kind. Religious Jews are obliged at the evenings of Hanukkah to light a Menorah - a vessel of 9 candles - at their windowsill. More observant Jews do not use wax candles for this purpose, but instead…

Food Insecurity among West Bank Bedouins

Thanks to the Zionist ethos, which centred around building a Jewish economy based on farming, agricultural surplus in Israel is reasonably high, and according to the CIA factbook, except for grain, Israel is agriculturally self-reliant. White bread, milk and vegetables are subsidized by the government. Living in a rather poor city, I can testify that basic nutrition, comprised of white bread and fresh vegetables, is available to most if not all city dwellers, although being fed through… Continue

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.
