Solar or Biogas; Take your pick!

The only source of energy I use in my home is Hydro Electric Power. It is the most common in Uganda today. Very expensive however but we don’t have many options. One of the options is solar which is really expensive in

terms of initial set up costs.



Hydro Electric Power is relatively cheap in terms of initial costs of connection however it’s pretty expensive to maintain in the long run.



In my house I use “…

I report inadequate food access and availability in Uganda.

Uganda's economy widely depends on the agricultural sector. The biggest population of Ugandans benefits from Agriculture - both directly and indirectly.

Many regions in Uganda are practicing subsistence agriculture - mainly because the land is owned by private individuals in small plots; so, the people choose what to do on their plots of land.

Because families practice subsistence agriculture on small plots of land, their target is to produce enough to feed…

Not me (us) against (you) them!

4 hours ago Nick Heyming (one of the agents) wrote on his page, "I think it would be cool if in

the last week they rated you not on how many power points you HAD, but

how many you'd GIVEN OUT..."

I think that would be really nice. Its such a cool idea he has in there. And I TOTALLY agree with… Continue

LEARN 1: Provide skills NOT just finished technologies.

Most of the current problems in Africa are being solve by the few "experts". On top of being expensive, it takes them a bit of time to do the necessary research and studies before they come to a conclusion.

In my opinion, it would be a lot easy if the local people are given the skills to investigate solutions to the problems affecting them. This makes them feel more involved hence taking up the obligation to find solutions to their own problems and "make it happen"/ innovate.

Its the… 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.

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.
