A crash course in changing the world.
Yesterday we celebrated mother's day in Jordan.... It is a great and heartwarming celebration in which we reassert our gratitude and humility to what our mom's did to make us who we are today...
Now it is the year 2020 and we are adding a new twist to our celebrations, we are also celebrating mother's day for our great mother Earth.... In 2015 we finally stopped the effects of global warming and now earth is celebrating 5 years of its new state of being able to sustain us…Continue
I have just found a Jordanian company that produces Photovoltaic panels and systems.
I shall contact them next week to investigate the price of buying a panel which they say produces 153 W/m2.. I only need 90 Watt max for my laptop. Moreover since the power is already DC, i will only need to connect a wire to the output…Continue
Check this out, these guys are working on developing a refrigerator that does not need electricity.
This could be a great venture for Africa especially in rural areas....
I have been looking for someone to follow and establish as a hero since I started Evoke... there are so many out there and I stand humbled by all of you outstanding human beings... I particularly liked Sfricagadget and then went to check the blog of Erik Hersman, its founder at http://whiteafrican.com/... I have to admit that the get things done is by all means a credo. I highly respect his activities and his enduring effect and I sent him an email to…Continue
In 2020 I would be living in a house that is one floor 2/3 of which will be underground benefitting from the constant temperature of the earth around me, sitting on the floor on a wool woven rug from my sheep which are grazing outside on local flora (enough sheep to sustain themselves and me, not for commercial use), eating an amazing Salad and Thareed meal made at home. (Salad from home grown vegetables and Thareed is home made from yeast free wh*** grain very thin bread, smothered in…Continue
In Jordan, the presence of Takiet Um Ali with a Vision of "Towards a ‘free from hunger’ Jordan in 2015" has been a great support for those of us who want to make sure that their money does not only feed the poor but also goes beyond to empower the poor. (http://www.tkiyetumali.org/English/how_tkiyet.shtm).
I am an annual contributor to Takiet Um Ali and have added my company "Structure Consulting" to the list of…Continue

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is by any standard a desert kingdom.
Nearly 70% of the land is stony steppe and desert (called ‘badiah’) with an average annual rainfall of less than 50 to up to 100 mm. Steppe and desert are just two of the four major physiographic regions.
There is also the Jordan Valley and the highlands, a chain of hills and mountains running from northwest to southwest of the country. As a result the altitude varies from -400 m near the Dead Sea to +1735…Continue

In 10 years, I hope to be living in Sudan at the connecting point between the white Nile and blue Nile that together make the Nile river. That area is part of Al-Jazeera triangle, which is one of the most fertile lands in the world for crop production. In the Arab World we look at Sudan and Dream. It has been said that if Sudan is planted well then it can feed the wh*** of the Arab World. Well lets look at Sudan itself and we cry because of the famine levels there. Imagine Sudan can feed the…Continue
All secrets have merit and it is difficult to think in single secrets, as a solid sustainable solution can only come through the implementation of many secrets working together to create a result bigger than the summation of the parts.
My favorite secret is "provide skills, not just finished technologies". Coming from a developing nation that has been innundated with aid and support, it has become second nature to be blinded by the number of white elephants that aid has…Continue
