Thesis projects and feminists.

As I am an academic and don't currently live in my home country, this may be a tough one. as it so happens, one of my class mates is doing her thesis on the exploitation of women in Europe. This seems to me to be a good opportunity to both learn a lot and maybe help out. In fact I'm sure I'll help out at least with the English portion as hers isn't that good.


I have to say, the more I delve into this issue the more I find it's riddled with propaganda. A lot of what I see,…

Resilience projects Tel Aviv

First of all, let us talk about what's happening globally.




This is a nice little site that defines and deals with all sorts of resilience issues in cities around the world. it's well worth a look.
My city, Tel Aviv, has many plans for many types of crisis. First and foremost there is the issue of earthquake protection. many claim a big on is coming and so…

Ushahidi Israel

If this sort of a system were to be deployed in Israel during a crisis, I would definitely join.


The only crisis I can think of in my country that may need this system and is even remotely possible is a major earthquake. If one happens, we will need such a system. more than us, the countries around us will need it even more, as I know in israel many efforts are being spent preparing for one.


Everyone in Israel has a mobile phone and so there is a…

First steps

Ok, so I've taken my first step toward my journey of discovery on the issue. It's a little funny, as I've studied law in Israel and all I've seen is gender inequality against men. As progressive as this country is, men can still not keep the kids in a divorce or get payed alimony. But that's not the issue.
The first thing I did was to check out the facts in Israel. Warning, there are a few false facts in this link. for example: there is a small claims court in Israel and the retirement age…

My uncle the organic farmer

Last weekend, I visited my uncle who is an organic farmer.


Well, he retired last year, but he is still hard at work teaching the next generation how to get things done. They still have low harvests (probably from not listening to what they are told) but they show promise.


My uncle is no ordinary organic farmer, he is one of the leading experts in his field. He's been doing it for over five decades and has practically written the rule book. Why…

Europeanization.

When you think of it, and I know this is not the most popular opinion in the more militant circles, the biggest driving force of democracy and prosperity is Europeanization. The process of Europeanization has taken countless countries which were on the verge of losing the little new democracy they had left and gave them an incentive to work hard and get things done. The carrot of being part of the EU isn't only a nice thing for European states. post communists, Balkans and even Turkey have… Continue

The Future of Money 2020

In the year 2020, maybe the free market will come to Africa.


The financial system which worked so well for Europe comes to Africa. One country meets the basic goals of financing for equal trade with Europe. It has a low interest rate and a stable currency. It's national debt is less than 5% of its gross national product and so it's inflation stays low.
Europe decides to take a step and introduces a free trade area with this small African country. it also sends…

The Burning Man

Oooh, this is a tough one.


Well, it's hard, in my current state of affairs, to take this as a project. in a month or so I should be able to figure out a way to have all those people I know in Germany to pay me back in ways other than cash (though, truth be told, I prefer cash).
I was laying around thinking out loud on how to complete this task when my Girlfriend (Miss Amazing) told me about a festval they once had whos point was a barter system rather than…

The rules of home power systems.

A home power system (like solar panels or wind turbines) are not yet worth while.


here are a few rules I've devised, that is reached will be viable and ready to sell.


1. Space: The entire system needs to fit on a roof top or in a back yard. the largest it can be is about the size of a double bed, but preferably the size of a single bed.


2. Price: It should not cost more than…

Clean water day

This is a bit of a crazy idea.


There are types of bacteria that glow in the dark.


I think it would be a nice idea to build a large see through water tank the glows in the dark in the middle of a major city. people would be able to see it from afar and come check what all the fuss is about.


at the station people would be able to filter the water themselves to get clean drinking water. they could see themselves scooping…

Crash Burn and Happyness.

Ok... Talked to an engeneer about my 3 projects (Wind, Wave and solar)

Here are the results:

Wind: well, I had a great idea for a new kind of wind turbine.

After talking to the engeneer it turnes out, that though it seems counter intuative that it would be more efficiant use…

Amazing idea.

Among the few really amazing things I've been researching. this one takes the cake.


This is a TED talk, so I assume a lot of you have heard about it, but it still blows my mind.
If this idea gets mass produced, it WILL solve the short term clean water issues of the world. it's cheap and easy and last for a long while.


enjoy.…

Wave Energy

So here is a way I have thought of to make wave energy more efficient.


First, you anchor a pole to the ocean floor (how far from land is a question we wont go into). A good example of poles that are already there are those wind turbines that are planted in the sea. they also have the advantage of being connected to the grid already.


Second, wrap a float around the pole, so that it can slide up and down it as the waves go up and down. the size and…

A Look at Existing Alternative Power.

Having taken a look at some of the leading ideas for fuels to replace oil and coal, I decided to take the time to write a position paper (blog) about each. these are my opinions based on my research over the years.


Solar: Solar Power is by far the cleanest way to produce power. It is an endless stream of energy coming from the sun that will not stop any time soon. If we could harness only 0.3% of the sun hitting the earth at any given time, we could meet all…

A Path to Actual Change.

I feel we tend to go a little crazy when we talk about what the west is doing to help Africa. I must say, it seems to be lacking a little information and hence making people say and maybe think things that are simply not true. We have to know to work with government whenever we need to and shouldn't waste energy hating the establishment.


First of all, There is no conspiracy of governments to starve Africa. such a conspiracy can not exist, no two people could agree on such a…

A New Type of Wind Turbine .

OK, this is a strange one.


I've been playing around with fans and found that they spend a lot of the winds energy on moving in the wrong direction. the wind hits them at a 90 degree angle of where they turn to. And so the blades have to be aerodynamically designed and very large to get a turn from the wind, there needs to be a minimum of wind for it to work at all.


it would be much cheaper and much more efficient to have the fan horizontal, so…

CAPless food

I think two things stand between us and and eliminating the food crisis:


1. Water shortage
2. financial incentive to grow.


These are two very different problems with two very different solutions. A solar water desalination plant is whats needed to solve the water shortage. It does not exist in a properly viable way yet, but I hope it will by 2020. another way to desalinate is to use regular energy, so if the energy crisis is solved…

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. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
