my summary

I really enjoyed playing this game. I learned a lot about the different social problems and aspects from all over the world and I think I came up with a few creative solu-tions to a few urgent social problems. Altogether I’m surprised how good this season 1 worked. It should not be forgotten that this was the first season and the site is al-ready in one’s infancy. For Season 2 you should make more advertising for Evoke and I think season 2 will be more successful than season 1.

I hope in… Continue

food

I would try to reach the people who have large inventories of food. E.g. supermarket manager. These need to be informed about intelligent food rationing.

the past

My wisdom would be, to tell how it was in the past, so the people do not forget as it once was. Don't forget the past. I think it is important!

covering risk

I think, the most interesting secret of crisis communication is “covering risk”. I didn`t know that the risk consist of hazard and outrage. I really think that the hazard and the reaction of the people are often different things. In most cases the outrage is much higher than the hazard. I think, responsible for that are often the journalists. The article about covering risks… Continue

I read an article on "The community based natural ressource management experience in Zimbabwe". This article was very interesting and i tried to search more information about "CAMPFIRE". CAMPFIRE is a community based management programme which seeks to demonstrate that wildlife is a viable and alternative land use option in ecologically marginal communal lands. It is a… Continue

women soccer 2020

In 2011 I donated 10 $ to a women football coach training program in Rwanda. Because of the financial aid from all over the world this program was completed successfully and 100 female football coaches formed 100 women football teams throughout the country. The coaches reported that women who joined the football teams became more self-confident. The women realize that they have an own identity and that they have also rights. They can just meet within this social venture for playing soccer and… Continue

women soccer

As an enthusiastic soccer player i've decided to donate 10$ to a project from rwanda that trains 100 women with football coaching skills to provide 100 women football teams throughout the country. I have a friend that were in rwana for a social-year in 2010 and he told me that he played a lot of football with the kids in rwanda. So I know that the conditions to play football are not so good. With this small donation I got the feeling that i helped a little bit to improve this conditions… Continue

micro financing

In my opinion micro financing is a creative solution for using money in the future. Banks do not provide financial services, such as loans, to clients with little or no cash income. The principle of micro financing is, that microfinance institutions provide financial basic services like loans, savings and insurances for people. One example are the poor people in developing countries. Poor people borrow from informal moneylenders and save with informal collectors. The lended money can help to… Continue

the fair trade currency

Great news from the World Trade Organization (WTO). The WTO made ​​a great deal with the World Bank. From now on, a new fair trade currency is introduced. Only with this fair trade currency, it is possible to conduct international trade. Before the states can trade, they have to purchase this new fair trade currency from the World Bank. The course to obtain the new currency will depend on the GDP. States with low GDP get more marks for less. States with high GDP have to pay more for the same… Continue

genetic food

In 2020 I will live in a own house on a lake. The fridge is computer-controlled and the food is delivered by a supermarket-service. The food stems from a gene farm, where genetic modified food is produced. The advantage of this food is, that all nutrients I need and more are contained, because of the genetic manipulation. This food has been produced under energy-efficient conditions. But in my oppinion the best advantage is the modified delicious taste. On this evening I will eat with my wife… Continue

fogquest

When I searched for water projects I found a very interesting organization which is called FogQuest www.fogquest.org. It is a Canadian organization which is not government controlled. It is specialized in collecting water from fog. Therefore they built fog collectors in regions with suitable meteorological conditions, e.g. Chile, Guatemala and Ethiopia. These collectors consist of a big plastic mesh, where fog condenses and the obtained… Continue

geothermal energy

It is the first January 2020. The first day of the year and the first day on which can cover all of Germany's electricity consumption with renewable energies. It is a great day for all. Many countries are already "CoSuE-Countries" (Countries-of-sustainable-usage-of-energy). Many others are on the best way to get there. A crucial step in this direction brought the development of geothermal power plants. The power plants use geothermal energy to heat the water that drives turbines that generate… 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

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.

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.
