Imagine 5

This new bank keeps track of goods and skills offered to receive those goods. A person is able to "deposit" the skills used to help neighbors in their community and in return, the person can "withdraw" goods that are needed for the week. For example, a person cut and styled another individual's hair. That counts as a deposit into the bank and can be exchanged for food or yard work that needs to be done. This bank controls the amount of goods withdrawn from the bank in order to protect from… Continue

Act 5

Recently, a friend of mine was going to their cousin's graduation party. My friend wanted to bring a really great cheesecake dessert, but didn't know how to make one. I taught him how to make the cheesecake from scratch in time for his cousin's party. In exchange for helping him, he taught me how to change a tire on my bike. I'm participating in a century ride in September and it would be beneficial to know how to change a tire in case I need to. This way, my friend didn't have to go buy a cake… Continue

Learn 5

I think the greatest impact on the future of money is to trade skills rather than currency. I think if people had genuine interest in helping each other out, communities would benefit from trading skill sets. For example, a baker could trade fresh bread with a gardener who tends to their yard. This type of trade would provide an incentive to work together to lower costs for each other.

Imagine 4

The way I would bring attention to the world's water crisis would be to stock my university's vending machines with empty water bottles. The empty bottles could be taken from a recycling center nearby. This way, the magnitude of the water crisis would have an effect on students in the states. We cannot even comprehend the idea of not having water available whenever we so desire. The shortage on campus could inspire students to create a new innovation that could enhance the availability of water… Continue

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.
