IMAGINE 3: Mother Earth's day 2020

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…

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…

Get things done, that's the name of the game

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…

The fundamentals of humanity resides in accepting the basics that stem from our environment

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…

Towards a ‘free from hunger’ Jordan in 2015

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…

Understanding and respecting ecosystems is a way towards sustainability

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…

Imagine in 10 years

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…

Secrets of Social Innovation

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…

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 addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
