Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

This picture is devastating. After a 4 year drought in Kenya, the people are forced to dig giant h***s in the river bed just to find water. Water from the ocean can be brought to them to drink, but first must go through the process of desalination. This converts sea water to drinking water. Maybe an orginization can make desalination plants along the ocean.

The trajedy with Africa is the ever-increasing gap between rich and poor. We turn on own. The moment we get out of the situation all we can do is send our regards and boast about our new lavish lifestyles. The people of Africa need to become proactive in their own lives and stop expecting the West to keep bailing them out!

Hey Jake, first I see the word KENYA then the picture is frm AMREF where i work! Couldn't not give a point for this :). There are tablets available in Kenya that will make almost any water clear and drinkable. The challenge is that (1) many people do not know about this tablets and (2) although relatively inexpensive, many still cannot afford them.

Woah....The image you posted is very sad. That reminded me of the time I was volunteering in rural Kenya, I was teaching English in kenya and there were another group of volunteers building water purification systems. I have to say that, that period of time was really an eye opener for me, which made me appreciate and value things in life I usually take for granted.

I am glad to hear that Cornelia :). I went to an Indian reservation once and volunteered. It was an eye opener for me as well.

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.
