Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

When I am thinking about the future of the EVOKE network and what urgent challenges could be tackled next the following problems/spheres could be in the centre of attention:

> to save endangered animals and plants from extinction given special attention to protection and the reason for the threat

> Special attention should be given to the future and the education of children in different parts of the world. Every child should get the chance for a future prospect and of course to be a chlidren and not to work several hours per day to finance their family and dont have access to education. Here production of western goods and poor work conditions of people could be also addressed.

> Especially for the 'Western World' the trade with food could be important and eye opening. The waste should be reduced and the regional production and sale should be increased. In the interests of developing our society, there must be new awareness of an appropriate treatment of foodstuff.

> Another topic which should be focused is about cultural and ethnical characteristics and differences. Nearly everybody consider her-/ or himself as tolerant and open-minded towards other people, countries and cultures. But I think 'in practice' and every day life the handling and interaction with each other could be improved.

Furthermore I would suggest to support the regional point of reference. In the last missions I tried to integrate regional and local problems and solutions to tackle challenges in my surrounding. I think it is a good start for everyone to recognize and expose the 'near problems' to get a feeling for the 'bigger challenges' in the world.
Maybe it could be possible too, to work together with partners, firms, organizations etc. from the vicinity. Therefore I would suggest to burst the weekly intervals of the missions and instead give the agents two or three weeks time to concentrate on doing one or two 'bigger projects' as a mission with more points together with a partner.

I'm a big fan of the idea of handling local issues and to combine them with "big" problems. I think the biggest problems are also caused by local people.

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***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. 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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
