New York City Urban Resilience 2020

New York City is huge, and the number of issues one could deal with on such a map is similarly tremendous. I chose to focus on a few issues which might be mappable: Generating local electricity in NYC, and eliminating food deserts/expanding access to fresh produce in many underserved areas.

In addition, throughout…

Girl's Science Education

Inspired by the Evoke Challenge, and inspired by The Girl Effect video/website, I decided to put my money where my mouth is, and contribute. I'm now a contributor to the building and stocking of a Science Lab in Matale, Uganda in collaboration with the Harambee Centre. The school is 57% girls, and more than half are HIV/AIDS orphans.

I feel that science education is critically…

NYC Coalition Against Hunger

It took me a while to think of what I would/could do to help the food security of people in New York City. Rather than giving to a food pantry or similar organization, I wanted to find an organization to support which was actively trying to fix the system here... get money and attention where it needed to go in order to help people become food secure, not just put some food in their bellies once.

I finally happened across the NYC…

Dealing with a Zombie Outbreak!

Last August, a Canadian researcher published an article on the mathematics of a Zombie Outbreak. Of course, the Zombie Outbreak was of the modern variety, rather than the Vodou variety, and what he found was that, based on his model, civilization would likely be doomed. In the same vein, let's consider how Ushahidi might be used to deal with such a development in New York.

Some things Ushahidi would be useful…

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.
