IMAGINE4

I would make a national no driving day, and everyone would have to walk or use some type of human powered transportation. The world would save a lot of gas for the future in case we ever needed it. Plus it would help stop global warming from getting even worse than it is now. there could be world wide festivals to celebrate the earth and things we do to keep it going.

My friend was doing a study of water consumption on a daily to weekly basis. After finding out how much water i used, i then tried to lessen it by making changes in my daily habits. Things such as shorter showers, flushing the toilet less, and turning the faucet off when you are brushing your teeth. I seen a dramatic change that i think everyone should hear about. The more people change their ways to save water, the more water we will have for future generations

I seen a commercial on TV talking about renewable energy coming from waves in the ocean. I think that is a perfect way to have natural forces help create energy without having to burn or destroy our resources. Water has always been used as a way to gain energy, one example is dams. They flood a certain area with water and force it out through a small opening on the other side which powers turbines for electricity.

A national holiday should be made specifically for caring for the earth. No one works and everyone has to fulfill a commitment to help the earth become cleaner. People will organize different jobs so that different things can be addressed such as garbage and recycling. It would make way for a cleaner future and recycling of resources could help stop unnecessary waste. It would also be a fun day filled with activities to do with friends and family.

I think solar energy should become more available to the public. This could be great ways to charge and power electronic devices. Electronics should implement more solar panels like how calculators have so they can run without having to use electricity made from fossil fuels. More jobs should also be offered in the field of renewable energy because i feel it will help our nation get out of debt and its hunger for oil.

I never heard of biodiesel until my teacher from high school told me about it. Basically it is old vegetable oil from restaurants that has been processed and mixed with chemicals to make fuel. He had converted his old Mercedes to run on this type of fuel and i thought it was genius. The fact you can get practically free gas amazed me because i do not want to pay $5 a gallon for petroleum. This teacher inspires me to tell others to move to hybrids cars or alternative fuels so our earth does not… Continue

Treasure - The Future Is Green

Treasure Island, located in San Francisco, California. The 400-acre (1.5-square-km) man-made island was built in the middle of San Francisco Bay for the 1939 Golden Gate International Expositione.



­Under a new proposal, Treasure Island -- along with its neighbor Yerba Buena Island -- will become one of the most environmentally friendly developments in the United States when ground is broken in 2009.



Treasure Island project will be a test bed for eco-friendly urban ideas.… Continue

I am in my hometown and i am eating dinner with a couple of my friends. Food is now in pill form but after consumption, it feels like you ate a wh*** serving of whatever food it is. The food came from the new futuristic food lab that creates new dishes and foods in pill form. They have made food like things so that it only has positive affects to the body rather than doing harm. Now people do not have to watch what they are eating because it is all beneficial. Top food scientists replace chefs… Continue

My brothers have always taken care of me when i was younger. My favorite memory is when they would take me to get fast food like McDonalds or Burger King. Now that i am older, i can do the same for my brothers' children. It was a flash back for me when i took my nephew to go get some McDonalds because i was around his age when my brother was buying me food. I hope he remembers and cherishes the memory forever.

I once served at a local soup kitchen that helped people down on their luck. It was at my old school which was a private catholic school and it felt great to help people. I am not sure if it is still running today but i would love to go check and help out again. I never knew something as simple as soup could really help a person out and hopefully for the better. Soup is the best because it can contain ingredients that help the body from whatever ails it.

At 2020, i will be the CEO of a major corporation that will own shopping districts and living areas. I will turn to greener innovations to save the precious resources our finite world has. I plan on living in different areas of the world so i can experience other cultures. If a country had a problem such as a food crisis, i would try and donate a large portion of my profits to help them.

One of my heroes is Paul Han, he is a national yoyo champion and a very nice guy. He is willing to teach new throwers tricks and helps them with any problems. I have him on facebook and its where i find out new stuff about his yoyoing which i think is very dope. He is active and goes out into his community to help people to learn how to yoyo.

Richmond Emergency Preparedness

The approach I'm taking here is to highlight some of the points of the plans for the City of Richmond, California that has developed an Emergency Preparedness Plan, online so that the city and other areas may review and compare for their own cities.



Overall plan includes: Business Emergency Planning Guidelines; Emergency Preparedness Planning Websites; and, Employee Development Training



Business Emergency Planning Guidelines:

Preparedness helps avoid or minimize loss… Continue

Innovation is what drives humans to do better, especially in our economy. People have less money to spend so they find better alternatives to solve their problems.

City Bartering

In order to save the power of the dollar, I believe that many cities should look into using a bartering system that is going to be productive. A bartering system is when you trade goods or services for other goods or services without money being involved. Instead of paying with money in the city in which a person resides in, stores should except volunteer services from customers who are lacking money. For example, a customer wants to buy paint to paint her house from Home Depot. She cannot… Continue

Ushahidi

The types of emergency crisis that can be experienced in the local towns for which I reside in are: social unrests/riots (between races, or disagreements regarding police brutality -- such as the shooting of Oscar Grant); blackouts/brownouts, earthquakes or pipeline explosions (such as the explosion of pipelines in 2010 occurring in San Bruno, California); other exlplosions and so on.



The types of information to be tracked and the sources to be used are: number of emergency personnel… Continue

Clean Water Awareness

What I decided to do as my action is spread the awareness of swap from Kenya west Africa. Swap is an organization that helps advocate against the spread of HIV. In the program they make water treatments and other products available for those who are in need. And as my act I will contribute in the spread of awareness of the program.

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

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.
