Koh Phangan

The two views of a place



There are finally new tourists, whom I can show my tricks and maybe get some money. They consider this island as a holiday destination and enjoy. For me, this place is just a place to survive. Here I am trying to earn a little bit money to feed myself. My parents do not earn very much, so they task me every night to go the beach to entertain the people. Sometimes it seems that I bother them.However I have to…

Evoke should next deal for example with animal protection, CO2 emissions as well as technical innovations. However, I think that especially topics concerning children are of major importance. For this reason, Evoke should deal with education, forced marriages and child labor. Children are in fact creatures that are most helpless and can not help themselves. Therefore, they must be supported.

The network should try to build Evoke communities especially in regions that are affected by the…

I read the five secrets of Crisis Communication and my opinion is that all of them are important. However “How Do People React in a Pandemic?” and based on this “Managing Panic in a Pandemic” are especially important.

When people become aware of a risk, they overreact, but this is mostly a temporary short-term overreaction. This behavior is advantageous. The earlier people go through this first phase of overreaction the better it is. People who have gone through it come out on the…

I choose the study about the protection of forests in Uganda.

Two case studies are taken from Western Uganda, East Africa (Mgahinga Gorilla National Park and Karuma Game reserve). They are about protected areas for biodiversity conservation.

Before the institutional changes the communities in and around the forests, traditionally depended on forest resources. Deforested and the heavily cultivated areas, charcoal and bamboo trade left mountain slopes vulnerable to soil erosion and…

From 1967 to 1978 in the former salt mine Asse II in Remlingen in the district of Wolfenbüttel 125.000 drums containing lower-level radioactive and 1.300 barrels of medium-level radioactive waste have been stored. They are from nuclear power plants and nuclear research facility.

Since 1988, a permanent liquid flow is registered on the ceilings. Per day up to 12.000 liters of water can penetrate into the “Asse”. For this reason the stability is guaranteed only until 2014. If the…

I choose the story " “I Wish…” UN Women captures Egypt’s first Human Chain against Sexual Harassment" from the WomenWatch news feed.

In May 2012 a campaign "Nefsi" meaning "I wish" against sexual hatassment took place in Egypt.

Inspired by snowballing, 80 participants distributing messages on paper sheets lined the sidewalks in Mohandessin, a Cairo thoroughfare. It was the country's first "human chain" against sexual harassment. Amog the participants there were women as well as men.…

Clean water is essential for life, but one in eight of the world’s population does not have access to it. As a result there are 1.6 million diarrhoeal deaths every year related to unsafe water, sanitation, and hygiene. The vast majority among children under five.

It is common knowledge that boiling, using charcoal, kerosene or firewood can make water safe to drink. But it is not as widely known that UV light also kills micro-organisms. Solvatten is a specially designed container that…

The growing energy demand for limited natural resources presents utilities, manufacturers and consumers with the challenge to use energy more efficient and environment-friendly.

However today we live in an industrialized society and also very consumerist. The use of gadgets is becoming increasingly common, either by necessity or hobby. Such gadgets tend to consume a high amount of electrical energy.

The Brazilian designer Joao Lammogila developed “Aire”, a kind of “mask” that…

In Germany, around 3 million children are growing up in poverty. Poverty means not only that children can’t be supported and are disadvantaged in other respects in their communities, but also that they are not adequately and wrong nourished, even though there is an abundance of food in Germany.

The first fundamental step in order to escape from this vicious circle of poverty, is a regular and healthy lunch for many of these children.

To ensure the food supply of the children and…

My favorite secret is:

What you have matters more than what you lack!

This secret tells us, that you should focus on the available ressources and not think about "what if". Only than the best possible result can be achieved.

By different decision-making and creativity methods, which are actually available to everybody several approaches can be developed, which will finally lead to an optimal result with der resources you have.

The "what if" thoughts, so the thoughts of…

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

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.
