10 Ideas To Be A Better Human Today

Image
Humans are inherently able to empathize with others. Many of us sometimes get droned out by life to the point where we become blind to people struggling around us. Being a good human should just be being human. Seeing people starve, struggle, and hurt just breaks my heart. To help them out should be second nature to us, sadly many walk by and carry on in their life. Some people dedicate their lives to helping others, and they are the true humans among us. If every human on this planet did their part in being better the world would be a better place. So let us start, here are 10 ideas for you to be a better human being today. 
1.Call a charity to Volunteer: Do not worry, you do not need to volunteer today. Just make the call to a local charity and arrange a day where you can go, volunteer. Whatever date, time, and place work for you. Charities often run on volunteer support, and by helping them out, you can give your time to a good cause. Heck, take your family or friends with you and …

5 Ideas To Make a Meaningful Impact In Your Community

Image
A lot of us have a community belong to, but many walk by them everyday moving onwards with life. To make a difference in the world one needs to only start with the people around them, their community. So I decided to come up with the following ideas to help you better serve the people around you. 
Volunteering: Now, to keep this concise, volunteering, in this case, means helping any local place with your time. For example, serving food at a soup kitchen, or picking up trash. Volunteering is such an amazing thing to do for your community because it brings so much personal satisfaction to both the volunteer and the community. It’s something that illuminates the faces of strangers and helps form everlasting bonds with others. Volunteering is giving time to help someone with something. Some of the benefits of volunteering include improving your resume, personal satisfaction, building relationships, and networks. The thing about volunteering is that it is really easy to get started. Just fi…

Ugh.... Why are you wasting food

Image
Food waste is a major problem in our society. Before we start, take a moment to think of all the times you threw something in the garbage just because you were full or didn’t like it. I know I’m guilty of it. The average human wastes a lot of food. Whatever the reason maybe it’s time to change for the better. For some reason, I feel like we can feed everyone in the world just with the food we’ve all wasted. But it’s not just us, major corporations and businesses waste way more food than the average human. What do you think happens to the food that doesn't get ordered at a restaurant? You may think it gets reused but In reality, it doesn’t and ends up in the garbage. Also the scraps from meal preparation are also an issue. 
What’s the solution, composting! Composting is a basic gardening technique where food scraps are added to soil with plenty of worms. The worms digest these scraps and give us nutrients rich soil that can be used for farming and gardening. This stuff is way better…

Soy Milk From A Cow?

So this is an idea that is very close to my heart because of Rotary. Rotary is an international service organization that has been making meaningful changes for several decades now. Everything from building schools to eradicating polio. (A link to them is here). So the reason why this organization is close to me is that I’ve been a part of my local rotary chapter at different levels for the past 8 years and after giving so many great experiences for me to remember, they deserve a shout out. The mechanical cow is an idea that Rotary helped create and I wanted to share it with you all today.  
So what is it, It's a machine that takes soybeans and water to produce soy milk. How does it work? Well, it takes soaked soybeans and puts them in a pressure cooker, and when steam is inserted into the system it pours out protein-rich soy milk and okara. This okara is the insoluble stuff but it can be used for bread among other things. Now, this system can be either run by electricity or by gas…

Farm up?

Agriculture is a staple for every nation In the world. The increase of conventional agriculture has caused forests and ecosystems to pay the price. To make way for these farms, corporations set fire to forests causing irreparable damage, and this is deeply saddening. Vertical farming is an idea that has been around for a while but has been kept hidden for most of its existence. Vertical farming is just what it sounds like. Farming with height instead of with a surface area like conventional farms.
Many designs of this type of farm have been presented over the years but some also come with their unique challenges(link to a few of them here). Some of these designs are so advanced that they contain automated water distribution controls, led lights in certain EMR frequencies, and internal climate control systems. Sounds like something out of a science fiction movie right? 
The cool thing is these systems can provide any product and any time in the year. What’s cool is certain Michelin starr…
