Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I am going to miss Los Angeles

Every time I leave, I think this. The weather was so beautiful today, 75 degrees fahrenheit and clear enough to see the snow-capped mountains not an hour away. A perfect Los Angeles day working with my colleagues teaching public diplomacy at USC, facilitating architecture and international collaborative design, nonprofit community networks and spark-inducing-high-tech art. My life is a dream, it could not be any better than this.

I got a number of odd messages, first from my husband then from my sister. My father passed away this afternoon. He has lived in Virginia for the last 35 years so in a few hours I will get on another plane to wish him a final farewell with my family.

The strangest things have come to light today. I only cry when on Facebook. With two parents now dead under the age of 60 I should be very careful with my heart & health, detoxing more vigorously and not allowing toxins to build up in my body. I feel the need to step it up a notch, to be my best and not slack at all anymore.

So I throw my all into my favorite endeavor, an attempt to answer many questions for youth about child & youth labor in the chocolate industry through gaming & a 3D doc**entary. We're up for an award right now, you can vote for us at http://www.refresheverything.com/chocolate

Please vote every day. Tell your friends.
My father wanted me to be a physicist or mathematician but I chose to be an interactive producer....now bringing together a tremendous team to build a STEM learning game that teaches physics, engineering, chemistry, economics, technology skills through gameplay with other youth around the world. What we're doing here at Evoke for the next generation. I want millions of kids around the world to talk and share in one educational network where they teach each other what they need to know to thrive and honor the wh***. I know we can do this, I've seen what thousands of you can do in just a few days.

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

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.
