Exchange system

When I was in my country, we used to buy things by exchanging them with something else: clothes, furniture, etc.....it was really a helpful system for a lot of people. Nowadays this system no longer exists in my country, now it is all about money. But this week I managed to pay something I could not afford by using this system and I gave the person something else that he really needed, that way we are both happy and neither of us had to use money.

Daizi Zheng, a graduate of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, developed a phone for Nokia that runs on Coca Cola — presumably sugared water would do just as well as the branded fizzy drink. Apparently the battery creates electricity by using enzymes to catalyze the sugar in the drink. In addition the claim is that the biodegradable battery lasts four times longer…

When you think of sugar you probably think of cakes and lollies - Yum! Not a bad first thought, but did you know that the sugar cane can be made into energy?

Fourth of July on the Lake

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

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.
