IMAGINE 1 --- Me in 10 years time ...

In 10 years time I will be weeks away from turning 31. Wow. Hopefully I will be a practicing attorney, specialising in Environmental Law - that's my big goal career wise. My biggest achievement will hopefully be to have realised my dream of becoming a mother - by 31 hopefully there'll be 2 or even 3 little people in the world who have come from me. Changing the world in little ways has always been important to me and hopefully by this stage in my life I will have realised some of my goals in…

ACT 1 --- Global Social benefit Incubator -- an initiative by SocialEdge

I have decided to 'shadow' the Global Social Benefit Incubator and, more specifically, SocialEdge itself. There approach to social problems is transdiciplinary and embraces a multitude of different sectors of the community, economy and world. The site hosts opinions by some of the leading social commentators of the day and also has many interviews with people who are out there making a difference every day. This kind of multi-faceted and multi-dimensional approach to a pressing issue is very… Continue

LEARN 1 -- "Don't fight culture"

"Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.) "

This, for me, is one of the critical problems facing those trying to do something positive in the world. History is my passion and the study of it - especially in the South African context - has showed me how often people have tried to…

Hey Sarah, how about I share a story that inspired me today?? There is a small town in Kenya called Sega - a typical dusty village with a reputation for tidit (a potent local brew). But that is changing fast and it is now transforming itself into a hub of information technology through the initiative of local boys. These boys have started the Sega Silicon Valley an ambitious initiative that aims to transform Sega village, consisting of 10,000 inhabitants, into a “Silicon Valley”, an African ICT hub comparable to the Silicon Valley in the US. How about that??? Read more about it @ segasiliconvalley.org

Had to give you a +1 in collaboration. The oldest form of winning friends and supporters is the ability to "walk a mile in their shoes," to "see things from their side." By calling out a cultural viewpoint vision, you can then offer the world something even more beautiful - world peace.

The truth is, it is a passion that consumes me. In the US, there is to much bureaucracy and not enough action on doing what is truly right - changing human rights within the world. You truly are a precious commodity in this world. Not only are you confidently moving in a positive direction, but you are also an uplifter. True, heartfelt edifiers make the world a better place. Keep the attitude. You make me smile. :)

Thanks Sarah. I'm definitely on my way. I've got everything locked down to be a pilot; just have to get through the 52-week training period towards the end of 2011. =]

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

Changes to Charleston

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
