Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Dark Site - The Prime Directive Mission

One thing that I've always been slightly obsessed with is the efficiency that comes from combining tasks that I want to do. Doing all my errands in one fell swoop, for example, to save me from going out more than once. Or combining my desire to have make art (play) with the need to do useful things for the world (work) by choosing a fun career (as an art- and philosophy-based teacher).

So for this most difficult mission so far in the Evoke journey, creating a fully functioning dark site to serve as a collection of information and contacts in the case of an emergency, I naturally sought to find a way to use the assignment to solve some other, more self-directed tasks on my list of things-to-do. And what I came up with kind of blew me away! :-) I managed to accomplish three separate, and highly meaningful goals with this dark site:

1. Create a useful dark site for organizing information and contacts for use in an emergency in my area.

2. Reconnect with my friends and fellow "pilots" in the Subversive Choppers Urban Legion (SCUL), a bicycle chopper nerd gang that's been a major part of my life for about 10 years now, but that I'd had to remove myself from for personal reasons. I specifically wanted to reconnect in a way that allowed me to truly appreciate the gang, and to support us all in being healthy, happy, and awesome, and to help us all continue grow into an even better community.

3. Use my collected research and findings from my work with Maslow 2.0 to create more effective and efficient policies and tools for the world to use to help everyone be healthier and grow into their best, most superhero like selves.

Right now the site is still in it's primative form, but it's got all the basic information that it needs to start the ball rolling. And yesterday I mustered up my courage and went to visit our gang leader, the amazingly wonderful Skunk, to propose my idea for the extra secret, superhero SCUL mission website, and let him know that I am still committed to our rather unique and special family of slightly awkward geeky pilots and that I want to actively participate in the gang again. He was supportive of me and thought the idea was pretty good. And he welcomed me back into the community, even though he knows there is still a lot of personal conflict between me and a few other members (primarily my husband, and the women he's been having affairs with). I assured him that I was hesitant as well, but felt that the timing was right, and that I wanted to participate in a way that would respectfully leave us all plenty of space to do our own thing.

Anyway, here is the evidence of this most difficult and rewarding mission! I call it the SCUL Prime site: The Prime Directive Mission. The site creates a mission goal of helping everyone get their basic input and output needs met for health (based on my Maslow 2.0 work), and for providing win-win mediation for conflicts. And the site serves as a listing of pilots actively engaging in the various tasks within the mission objectives, and contact information, which will be extra valuable in any emergency, as we can call on pilots to report for active duty, and keep in contact even if our main website goes down.

Serious Yay!

Fantastic, great work and love when one tasks cleans up several. You've sparked me to get going on one of the most difficult tasks for me, thanks!

You're welcome! It was so rewarding to do, and it's still very much a work in progress, but starting the ball rolling is the toughest part, and once you get going, it kind of just gets your momentum moving forward. Making it more personally meaningful seems to help, though. If it's something you and your friends and family could really use it gives you a lot of energy for making it happen.

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

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**stances 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.
