In 2020, I imagine I will be working with a conservation organisation - looking for ways to enable farmers to produce crops in more sustainable ways. Our current methods are inherently self-destructive. They rely on additives such as fertilizers and pesticides to ensure continued cropping success, while lowering the productivity of the land more and more. Continuing in this way will only lead to eventual disaster. I hope to be part of the solution, and plan on being in the thick of it by 2020.

Effective Social Innovation

One "secret of social innvoation" that struck a chord with me was "talk to the people who have the problem – and LISTEN to what they have to say". I believe this is key to EFFECTIVE social innovation. Without this type of research, we cannot understand the true nature of the problem, we cannot understand all the ramifications of our solutions, and we cannot help people to help themselves. Social innovation should not ignore the culture, traditions and REAL needs of the people we are trying to… Continue

HI! By 'B dot', I assume you mean 'Brandon' - sorry, I hadn't heard that one before! Good to see other Brandonites getting into 'evoke'. I think this is an incredible experience - hope it leads to some lasting positive changes, both in Africa and around the world!

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

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.

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
