Manifesto of Urgent Evoke

Urgent Evoke is a call to action for people who are interested about making a change in their immediate surroundings that could potentially lead to more extensive changes all over the country and the world. Evoke agents will learn to think critically about what it is that needs to be done on multiple levels to solve stages of problems such as water shortages, food shortages, etc. You simply need to put on your critical thinking cap and let your heart guide your thoughts and actions. You…

Script for Season 2

You and your family are taking a trip to another city in the US for a week over the summer and you are invited to participate in a Random Acts of Kindness summit while you are there. What contributions can you make in this city where you don't know anyone? Subsequently, what will you take away from this peace-promoting workshop and bring home with you to share with others?

Next EVOKE mission?!

I think the next Urgent Evoke mission to be completed is peace between people who do not see eye to eye on controversial issues in society. I know that it is not realistic to expect that people will be able to change there minds so far as to agree completely with others on everything but we need to look at the real roots of violence in our culture today and brainstorm ways that we can change this pattern to one of acceptance and striving for understanding and grace.

Organizing People

The Flu pandemic has reached my community and therefore I will organize my sorority sisters to raise money and send care packages to those suffering from this horrible illness throughout our community. This will not be a difficult task because there are over 200 of us and if we all bring $3 we can buy supplies to cheer up people in need all over the community.

Panic in the Community

I found the section about dealing with group panic to be very interesting because I had never given much thought to the fact that there has to be a group of people ready to help deal with community panic in high stress and disaster situations. Everyone copes with fear and anxiety very differently but many people's response would be to panic instead of waiting to hear all of the facts about the situation at hand. I read the article from Harvard about the reasons why panic can become such an…

Wisdom when I'm 100

When I'm 100 years old I will want to pass down a lot of wisdom to my family and fellow citizens of the community I live it, which, at that point, may or may not end up being an indigenous community. I think that the main thing that I will want people to realize is that our natural resources are finite and that we need to appreciate them while we have them and not abuse them the way we so often do. I will want to make sure that children grow up and are being raised to understand the…

Criminals Don't Obey Laws

I read an article from the KIVU site about lawmaking and the debate about whether laws even need to be in effect if people are just going to break them. Some very interesting points were made and I have never really given much thought to the subject until today but I agree with the school of thought that says that no matter if people are going to deliberately disobey them, laws are very necessary to keep our society functioning safely and properly. Without laws, people would have no societal…

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.
