Ushahidi - The power of information

Ushahidi is an awsome example of how poeple are able to empower themselves making use of the new information technology, once they are aware of it and have access to it. I'll label this in the Empowering Women section for now, since Ushahidi was originally set up by a woman in a war torn region, seeking to distribute information.

If unaware of it by now, Ushahidi means 'witness' in Swahili.

Hi Richard,
Thanks for reading and commenting on my "secret identity". I haven't heard about "charter Cities", could you tell me a bit more about them? (you're impression of what it is and perhaps a link would be great!)

Who ever said being a blogger was a bad thing. ;) However, yeah, any large community has a propensity for attracting trolls—just try and ignore them and focus on all the other awesome stuff going on!

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

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.
