Bill Gates: Innovating to Zero

I watched a very interesting presentation by Bill Gates on one of my favourite websites that bring innovative ideas from many people together. He mentioned some of the initiatives going on around the world to reduce the impact of producing energy, and went into some detail of what he was involved in personally.



One of the things that he's working on is creating nuclear power plants that would burn depleted uranium (which is the waste from nuclear power plants today). This will… Continue

Desk Lamps and Power

I was thinking about something I use every day as a student, my desk lamp, and how much of an impact that it has every year. In Canada there are about 1 million tertiary students, and if they study a mere hour a day during the school year that's about 11760 giga watts using 60 watt light bulbs for the year.



I thought it would be amazing to use something that doesn't depend on burning coal or produce too much waste, so I thought why not utilize something biological.

Learning about social innovation

Do the hard work needed to find a simple solution.

As Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate

sophistication”—and it is the key to this type of design work.



Out of all the tips that were presented, this one stood out to me the most. It links back to many of the other tips. If something is simple, it should be easier to make, more people could adopt it, more people would WANT to adopt it.



And the flip-side to that is also given in…

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

Future

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.
