I saw something on TED.com about this. It is an excellent emergency tool. I think the key is viewing the issue for holistically...See what Willie Smits is doing in Borneo as a great, awe-inspiring solution. http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/willie_smits_restores_a_rainfores...

This is absolutely brilliant. Thanks for putting this up. The graphic is intense and therefore easy to make people believe that it is indeed possible. The Coordination Director (Joint Secy level) on behalf of of my largest clients (a health related division within the Indian government) took me along to a remote field visit with 20 other scientists and 8 of my doctor friends (who were doing on-site mobile health camps). I showed this amazing video to nearly 2500 people in a matter of 10 hours. People at first could not believe that it could be possible but slowly when they started realizing that this is indeed possible, they were almost pleading the Co-ordination Director to do something soon at their sites. The best thing that came out of this sheer public interest in this video was getting a call from a local District Magistrate's office the next day. I showed him again. He seemed so impressed to see this video that he asked me if I could put up a plan. So this has been a great start. I handed over the idea to another client of mine who is in the water business currently. He is conceiving an execution plan to work out on various issues regarding IP licensing issues, fabrication, logistics, design h***logation and costing. My role will be to ensure how to brainstorm ways to get this concept buy-in be endorsed within the government, get institutional procurement order book developed and working out the financing modalities of this project with government banks...this video did kick-start a chain reaction almost...the cost sheets will help us to find out if making it in India is the best option rather than importing it or getting completely knocked down (CKDs) parts better...other issues relevant in some parts are how to stop theft & vandalism and how best to monitor service repairs through public-private partnerships...so in essence, things are quite positive indeed.

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**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.
