Designing Power

Something I use (or SHOULD use) everyday is a vacuum cleaner in my room and if my vacuum was solar powered I could charge it in the sun and then more easily move it around my room without having to deal with a cord and plugging it in around my room and having to change the outlet that I'm connected to. The only downside would be having to charge my vacuum in the sun but I could create an electronic "charging port" of some sort instead.

Social Innovation Leader

I found the amazing website called Stanford Social Innovation Review and have loved reading many stories of empowering leaders. One in particular is Eve Ensler, founder of "V-day" and great activist for women's rights. Her story can be found here: http://www.ssireview.org/blog/entry/partnering_for_peace_through_education

Food 2020

In 2020 I hope that I am eating healthier, more natural or organic food that is a sustainable lifestyle and that also provides great jobs for farmers, etc.

Food Security Around Me

I will make a very deliberate effort to buy two less starbucks drinks a week and donate the money that I would have spent on chai tea lattes to help out a local homeless shelter - that will probably be meals for one person for a week!

Local Insight into Hunger Issues

I work twice a week in downtown Gainesville and it is extremely common to see homeless men and women all over the area. It is not often that I stop and think about how different their lives are from mine and that I have plenty of food to eat on a daily basis but that they probably don't know when they'll eat their next meal. It really makes me stop and think about the amount of money I spend on needless snacks and starbucks drinks each week instead of helping the hungry all around me. In the…

Think Like a Child

#5 from Paul Polak says to "think like a child" and when we are able to do this we can take a lot of the confusion out of life and our decisions. Children have the ability to see past reason and focus soley on what they want, simple as that. If we really want something we will be able to imagine many different ways of accomplishing our goals and dreams and can then help others to do the same.

2020

In the year 2020, I will be six years older making me 28 years old. By that time in my life I hope to be happily married and starting my family. I hope to be working somewhere in the Higher Education system to help those attending college succeed and find the most meaningful paths that they possibly can for themselves and their peers through social awareness and outside of the classroom learning. Things will have undoubtedly changed in the next six years but I hope to remain loyal to my…

Ben Rector is an unbelievable role model because he is sharing his talent (his wonderful voice and songwriting abilities) to share his love of God and his spirituality!

Thinking Like a Child - Learn1

I really love the #5 that reads "think like a child because children have no limit to their thinking". Our imaginations are much more useful that we often realize and it sometimes seems very "cliche" to say that if you can dream it, you can do it, but in reality we need to accept that our goals and dreams need to be big in order to make real social changes that are lasting and can impact great numbers of people! I am going to look at problems differently from here on out and try to think…

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

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.
