A crash course in changing the world.
"As a college student the "live on $2 a week" is a key secret. Understanding this lack of finances ties directly into lack of resources. The difference between buying a bottle of water and drinking some dirty water is as simple as a budget…"

My words of wisdom to future long island is primarily directed at the politics. I would advise them to remember that they are servants of the people. The trends of corruption and patronage need to end. All the patronage jobs, buying of votes, and political bullying needs to come to an end. If these trends continue, long island is sure to see the continued demise of its infrastructure and plummet further and further into debt. Take a good look at who is working for you, Long Island. Demand…Continue

Although the website for CBRNM is currently not working, a success story that is very relative to under developed countries is Coca Cola expanding its operation into South America. It is using its business power and influence to change the country for the better. The globalization into these underdeveloped markets is a success story because now local populations in poor countries are given the opportunity to grow and develop thanks to the help of a big business.

One of the largest problems that face my community is flooding due to a local canal and our position on the south shore of long island. My plan would be to shelter in place at local schools and evacuate anyone within 1/2 mile of the coast or waterfront. Following that I would call in local agencies for food and water such as the Red Cross. My fire and police department would be on standby to answer any and all calls of distress and problems. Following the event I would declare a state of…Continue

With advances in the media, technology, and the global pursuit of a more democratic society, I predict that the future for women is looking very bright. I predict that women will be more involved in the workplace. With the advancement of technology, certain jobs such as law enforcement, construction, and civil service jobs. These jobs were mainly male dominated because of the requirement of physical labor but as technology increases the need for such physical labor may diminish opening the…Continue

An interesting money system that I have been exposed to is the money system we have at The Citadel. Each year The Citadel advocates a specific amount of our tuition money onto a school card that we can use for uniforms, books, and hygiene items. Although it is real money from our tuition it is a good system in the sense that it gives students lateral movement to get the necessities they need for school. A good part about it is that the money is limited and it is limited to certain items one…Continue

The concept of credit has always been a great idea. People who aren't able to buy big ticket items are loaned money in order to get such an item with the anticipation that they will pay the full amount over time. While this concept is great it has taken to a mind of its own. The reliance on credit scores has become the SAT score for adults. Essentially this score follows you everywhere. Wanna buy a car? Sure you can buy a car but your credit isn't great so here is a killer interest rate…Continue
