Donate- Be it blood or books

Time flies! It feels like only yesterday we had started our community based youth club and now it’s nearly one year. After few programs that went on with full enthusiasm, we kind of remained stagnant. However unchanged our motivation might be, we couldn’t engage in any kind of programs due to our own busyness. Most of our club members had started job, few started internship and some went for abroad studies. It was our dear friend +Arjan KC who would post cool stuffs occasionally on our facebook group to engage us. He would also tweak our blog and it would make me guilty about not being able to give time to our club.

One good thing about our community is that we have full support from our older generation’s club. So when there are some programs to be organised, they reach us. This year too, Shyama Shyama Co-operative wanted to organize a blood donation program on the occasion of their 6th anniversary. They called me one late evening in their meeting to talk about the donation event. Having organised it previously, we were quite confident we could do this easily.

The event went well. However the donors were less than expected. This could be due to the chilly weather whole day. Also, maybe we didn’t go for house-to-house invitation (we had sent the invitation via sms, which was way easy, practical and less time consuming). Apart from the blood donation, we also had a book donation program. +Arjan KC  participated in the startup weekend only to get awesome ideas, good networking and a good platform to venture his ideas. He had teamed up with other guys he met at the Sartup weekend. As a result, there was a blue bin saying “books for all” where few people donated books.

Overall, the program went well. We hadn’t seen our club members in weeks and thanks to this program we were able to do so. I donated my blood for the very first time! I coaxed myself repeatedly saying “My blood can save someone’s life” (only to discover later it can save up to 4 lives! It seems I did not read those pamphlets carefully. Sigh.) Also we had a bonfire later like we always do after the end of the event. Looks like bonfire will be the tradition of Chentansheel Yuwa Samuha 😀

ICTs in Disaster Risk Management

Anotherverse

Nowadays, the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become more and more significant in various sectors of our society including the management of natural hazards and disasters. ICT can be used to minimize the impacts of disaster and plays an important role in all phases of the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) cycle: risk mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery, though its levels of involvement and applications are varied for each phases of the cycle. In order to reduce the impacts of natural disasters, it is required to put systematic efforts in the analysis of potential risk and identification of suitable measures for mitigation as well as for improved emergency preparedness activities, prior to a disaster. The response and recovery activities are as well important during and after a disaster for the provisions of emergency assistance for search and rescue, public safety as well as for the restoration of disaster-affected…

Santa’s Science Helpers

re:blog

re-design-santa2014-1

6th of December is celebrated in Poland as Santa’s day (called Mikołajki): children get small presents and the countdown to Christmas really begins. Usually it also means various fun activities for children in school and outside of it. Experyment science center organized activities for children with Santa’s workshop as a theme and we were asked to create illustrations. Santa’s sleigh was suggested and we added elves working on the sleigh to make it more scientifically advanced.

Since the activities included artistic tasks, the sleigh had to be filled with art supplies. We chose more or less Christmassy colors. Altogether Santa’s elves and science proved a fun mix to work on.

Young farm startups go back to the land

Will the future of food look like the past?

Past the muddy edges of Mace Chasm Road, live music rang out from a glowing white tent near the tiny village of Keeseville, NY, one recent Thursday night. A crowd surged around a brightly lit food truck and eddied near a tiny brewery built inside a barn. Dylan Badger, trained in sustainable agriculture, and his brother, Dan, a trained brewer, decided to bootstrap the AuSable Brewing Company after discovering Essex County — a community filled with entrepreneurial young farmers and an appreciative customer base. As patrons crowded the brewery/barn, the tent and the truck, 27-year-old Dylan reflected on the gathering crowd. “Everyone travels for beer, from 75-yr-old retired couples to young people who are just excited to come check out the Adirondacks. So while they’re here, we also point out the farmland, the people raising meat and veggies and dairy. They’re the ones who are really sustaining this area for us.”

In fact, the…
