Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Everyday I decided that I will post a photo for my friends on the EVOKE network.

I would like to get ideas from all of you what that photo means to you personally. What it means now or holds in store for the future.

PHOTO1 - Naples, Italy

In democracies in the West, people most likely expect the government to fix everything for them. "Mother State". if the government can't clean the streets because - for instance - the people who usually do this are on strike - then most people don't care about chipping in themselves. They just call the government or city council and complain. That's how things are, unfortunately.

at least it's not invisible, for a change.

+1 Courage. You are challenging vision! I just saw yesterday a similar post of the same thing happening in a city in Africa.. It is a failure of infrastructure. It has happened in many nations throughout the world: garbage strike. A reminder of how INTERDEPENDENT the orld is becoming.

Napoli is such a beautiful place and sadly, I think it's the Italian culture at that part of Italy, no offense. But when your government are in cohort with the local mobsters and sanitation industry are privatized, this is bound to happen...It's all for the profits instead of the well being of the community. But yeah...Napoli is pretty crazy place. I don't even want to be in the city at night.

I think the issue here - as it has been from the beginning of time- is that the richer and more powerful people don't want to spend their money.

Because of course to them money makes the world go round.

This is why the Mafia has to get rid of the trash. Why these people don't have the proper agencies to dispose of it. Why they have to live with all this trash. It's astonishing.

This is a big problem to overcome.

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.
