A crash course in changing the world.
Change is the word that springs to mind when one thinks about the last 10 years.
The process was slow,and took many years to gain pace, but the work eventually paid off. Women now have a better chance at having a good life. A life where discrimination against women is frowned upon, instead of being the norm.
Changes have been made to the areas in the world that once placed women down at the bottom of the…Continue
I looked at the WomenWatch website and, sure enough, I was drawn to a story.
It focuses on 25 year old Naseeba who lives in Pakistan. She is beaten by her abusive, drug-addicted husband who claims he wants to kill his wife for 'honor', and he began spreading lies she was with another man.
Naseeba ran to Lahore with her 3…Continue

GlobalBank is about to open; our future is about to change.
24 GobalBanks have been placed systematically across the globe, multiple banks on each inhabited continent. Tomorrow on the dot of seven they are all scheduled to open. GlobalBank is a step towards our future. One bank, and its own new currency; basically. GlobalBank links phones and income into its own currency: GlobalNotes.…Continue
I think the biggest change in relation to how we see and treat money is its increased transferable-ness and accessability by younger people. With money coming into the hands of younger and younger people, our economy as a wh*** has become more vunerable because the younger spenders are those spenders that spend it on 'wants' - rather on 'needs'.
Increased mobile phone use is generally not for need. It seems nowadays it is…Continue
At first I was stumped; so I did what anyone called Amber Sofia would do.
See, I have travelled a lot. I have used so many different currencies it's not funny. I have haggled with dirhams in Dubai, donated Australian dollars to charities, and bought bread with euros.
So I was running out of currencies to…Continue
So I know one needs both logic and creativity.
The way I see it there is enough logic and knowledge floating around the workspaces of today.
So I want to focus on a way of increasing creativity in adults much to the creativity levels children posess. However; one difference should ultimately exist between the creativity that the adults will posess in relation to a children's creativity: the naive…Continue
About 70% of the planet is covered with ocean.
Around 97.2% of the earth's water is salt water.
We are facing a water crisis in many third and second world countries. In the near future the water crisis could spread into the more advanced nations; especially with the growing population. With such a small amount of water actually available and drinkable,…Continue
You blog. I blog. We all blog.
Who has it down pat? Well no-one actually.
Some blogs are just better than others.
Recently - well of course recently seeing as my grand time as an Evoke member does not even total 48 hours - I have been reading a great many blogs by all of you. You never fail to amaze me. However, I find myself in despair over well. . . the sensitive topic of how to…Continue

I'm at home. I grabbed some takeaway on the way home from work - just the usual - organic stir fry with some free range chicken. It tastes ok, not as great as my food though. Although the food is concious of the origins of its ingredients, I cannot help noticing the fat content is relatively high. I check the nutrition information which I find within…Continue

How to increase food security for someone is a... difficult mission considering healthy/safe food is available where I live. Organic food is available in the supermarket, but not everyone buys it due to its crazy price.
So my contributions to the mission were to
-Raise awareness aboutorganic food
-Contact the major supermarkets in relation to their pricing…Continue

Ultimately? It could take any…Continue
Clean, safe, accessible water is an issue around the globe. So how can I make an impact on the output of a company who provides clean water to those who need it?
I am unemployed.
I am not yet an adult.
I have not started uni yet.
But I want to make an impact
So how could I possibly help a company? Donations are…Continue
Never let the child within you die.
Michelle's post [http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/the-secret-or-the-forgotten] made me stop and think. How much are we missing out on? As one goes through the education system not enough emphasis is placed upon creativity. As adults, playful, more individual ideas are often dismissed as 'childish' or…Continue

'Welcome to 2020!'
Hugs and kisses are…Continue
People everywhere are creating more energy efficient ways to do things. Just everyday people. A friend of my dad recently bought himself a new 4x4, in which he then had the engine converted to run on leftover oil from fast food chains [i.e. McDonalds]. I’m sure people have done this before, but the wh*** concept…Continue
''At any given time, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from a water-related disease.''
''Every 15 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.'' -That's four children dying per minute, or around 240 children dead every hour.
I don't care how many people have already blogged about it; it's absolutely amazing. […Continue
