Go Green: How To Start a Trend: Green Freebies

We must change the way we use energy, therefore, there must be a movement. The movement must be profound and massive. We must all be inclined to change and it must be easy. It also must be affordable.

Currently, the solar panel is quite expensive. Most people, a lot of people, don’t have any concept of green energy. Survival is the thing that rules the mind. Keeping, obtaining, and having in peace, employment in life is the chief thing, while relaxing or spending time with family on your days off. There are too many people in this country that are without employment or clinging to employment. Therefore, the notion of bothering with changing the way we use energy is too problematic.
The freebie is a special alternative. The giving body or organization could contribute green alternatives, which could create a wave. This is the best way to get the green wave going. This includes the electric car, windmills, and any other green innovation that changes the way we use energy.

To the local and federal Government, or the government officials that want to see this change, giving out freebies is important. You could invest in this through a federal budget or some other program and send out good (excellently) working solar panels and how to install info. This also includes the electric car, windmills, solar vehicles, and any other green products that change the way we use energy.

Therefore, the freebie is the way to go. It is the most important way to start a trend that changes the way we live, especially in one of the richest countries in the world.

Go Green: The Beginning of the Solar Panel and Quite Possibly Green Energy

I can say, we need to begin pushing the federal government to implement the use of the solar panel. This, however, can be a waste of time because of all the issues in the nation and issues occurring in the government. Meaning, this issue can be ignored like all other issues.

I could also say, we need to ask some big-time millionaire or billionaire to commit their time, life, and money to establishing their own solar-power producing and distributing plant for a community of a certain size with houses of a certain size too. This, however, seems too farfetched, and then there is how much they are going to charge us to live in peace.

I can say, a manufacturer could simply design a solar plant solo, and measure the amount of energy in comparison to the amount of voltage used to power a community or town in order to get this solar energy thing going. As to these areas that can be used, and of course people are not guinea pigs, they could select abandoned areas. There are plenty of places like this in the U.S. Yet one would have to find the manufacturer that wants to began an energy revolution with the possibility of a lot of pressure from rivals, and also, hope they don't charge us an arm or leg to live in their community when its up and running.

Then again we can all go out and try to obtain our own homes through a bank loan or by splurging on a house that is pretty ragged but has a great frame and good wiring that one could restore piece by piece and live in using solar panels.


We could just put out own resources and spare change together as a populace and begin using solar panels in our homes instead of electricity.

To electric companies, don’t be upset, you have the money and resources to switch to providing solar power at anytime. 

Anyway, this could begin by creating a particular green organization built from and run by the people (communities) nationwide that help and enable others to go green. From this would come a website giving all info pertaining to implementing, sustaining, administering, and growing with solar or renewable energy in this lifetime. It could include charity to fund the green drive, marketing green products, promoting green spaces, and all things encompassing helping each other to embrace green living.

Change begins with us, the consumers. If we start using Green Products and Green Energy, then everything will and must change with us. 

Overall, we could help each other get to this green energy place together. Some people are fast learners, others are not, and we must consider this when we don't help one another put up a solar panel. We must also consider that if we don’t change the way we use energy today we may end up wearing bags and other things over our head and face to go outdoors while trying not to suffocate to death.

Go Green: Why We Must Change The Way We Use Energy

The Earth is the most unique star in the Universe. The environment is alive and uncontrollable. Fossil Fuels, carbon, oxides and other gases get emitted into the atmosphere. This of course has been happening for years. Not only is it ruining the quality of crops or vegetation and water in most less developed countries, but in some major countries. 

Mother Nature; The Earth

The Earth is serene, beautiful, timeless and versatile in its existence. The earth is bounties and can never be restricted or controlled. This is especially when one considers the weather. The weather is a living force. The earth responds to emission emitted into the atmosphere by vehicles, by cloud cover and chemical-filled rain. It is as if the earth is throwing our chemicals back into our faces. The humidity in the air the trees the more thunderstorms that can lead to tornadoes. The excessive heat in the atmosphere with chemicals cause a reaction just like combining chemicals to make something work or function. 

My theory is that the earth's weather responds to the use of fossil fuels and chemicals emitted into the land or air. Regarding the atmosphere, it responds with severe long rain patterns that can result in landslides or flooding that effect the ground vegetation and can destroy pavements. It also responds by hurricanes, major droughts, and volcano eruptions.

This Blog Post

This blog post is to repeat what has already been said by scientists all over the world. It repeats the fact that we must change the way we develop and use energy every single day. This is not only to protect the environment, but to protect our own existence. As a Geographer, I came to understand that the earth formed long ago through chaos into an ecologically balanced star for living beings. I have always felt that the earth will, if completely unbalanced ecologically, balance itself back out. This means that weather patterns could occur that could destroy development, civilizations and so forth while trying to restore its balance. 

The Again...

These weather patterns that destroy could also be caused by us. This can be caused by us when we emit chemicals into the air, which could effect the weather patterns of the earth. This of course would lead to climate changes, skipped seasons, too much snow, too much rain, too many hurricane seasons. and so forth. Overall, the earth protects itself, whether it does it alone or humankind forces it to by all the waste and chemicals in the environment and atmosphere. 

Change is good. In terms of energy use, solar power, wind power or hydro-power are feasible. Change is very important worldwide and necessary for the welfare of the environment and us, as well as wildlife.

Go Justice: Dear Jury

Dear Jury

If you like a person, you will not convict them of murder even if they are a murderer. Even a stranger must be aware of the favoritism, admiration, or understanding they give to anyone. If you're going to be a part of a jury, you should listen to what happened, the crime, before drawing conclusions on a person. Being a part of a jury is not like high school, where you judge whether you like someone based on what they look like, what they wear, or how they talk. 

Hey Jury

The way you look at a case is based in what has happened, not the life story of the person that has been charged. If the person who has been charged wants you to get to know them, they need to make a documentary about their lives and distribute the DVD on their own time. 

Come On Jury 

Recognize that once the notion of who the person is has been ignored by you (the jury), the lawyer(s) of the accused really have to face the charges and prove their client's innocence. Otherwise, their job is a cake-walk.

Listen Jury 

Just because someone has a lot of money, are famous, are your race, are your culture, have the same religion as you, you sympathize with them, you can understand or relate to their fears, you can relate to or understand their biases, the certain thing that made them uncomfortable makes you uncomfortable, you think they did a funny thing at one time, they have a great personality, they have never had a history of violence, their community likes them, they look like a nice person, they look so sad, they are crying, they know powerful people, and so forth; does not mean they cannot commit a heinous, evil, sinister, monstrous, diabolical, or outright perverted crime. Because Dear Jury, your job is to listen to what happened, the people involved, and what each person did while taking into serious scrutiny whatever evidence is presented and make a decision based solely on these things.

This blog is for the people who do not know how, misunderstand, or have no concept of serving on a jury. Not applicable to everyone, or all people that have or may serve jury duty. Thanks for your kind attention :->Twitter Feed = @tonitheprima

Go Green: Location, Location, Location

Location Analysis, this is another very important contribution to the world that can only be contributed by a Geographer and Land-Use Planner.

This is very popular in the UK, however, not so popular in the U.S. This profession consists of strategies that contribute to the very special location of where businesses should locate. The specialist makes sure the business locates in the best place to operate with the full benefit of the consumer and business.

Waste clean-up and revitalization of many areas nationwide is important also. It is the cleansing and rebuilding in a sense of our nation's worst areas. We would do this so that the areas can be livable for maybe a park, or a community, or a business, and so forth.

I feel we should push for the idea for some machine that utterly destroys waste. I push this mainly towards engineers, and mechanics, and chemists; you guys could handle this one. This system could include actual machinery for disintegrating trash. 

We cannot just keep taking it and dumping it, by charity, on some other country. We cannot dump it onto an island either. Not only is this inhumane, but it is a danger to the world's health.                      

Mankind is supposed to be the ruin and end of this world. Well, I have a strong belief that as long as there are Boomers and a Generation X, this will be next to impossible.

And about this ruin, many theories say it begins with too much consumption. Most of the experts on the subject could agree with this. The use of too much land can ruin the land and use up water, displace animals (usually again upon us), or destroy ecosystems that we need.

However, location analysis only contributes the most when there is clean reusable land. It can be used to protect us, the animals; all lifeforms. Therefore clean-ups, tear-downs for rebuilding, and waste management and disposal should become the norm to us in this land for future benefits. 

Geographers, again, you can do what I can't do. You can make certain that location analysis is a special vibrant movement by establishing strategies and plans to clean-up, revitalize, destroy waste, and rebuild for better more efficient communities all over America. 

With some of you already working with/for the federal and state governments, you could exert this type of influence with a special plan for the best outcome. I am really cheering you onward as you scan this blog post.

Location is very important. It can be beneficial on a micro (individual lifestyle preference) scale, and on a macro scale. It can provide the best access to some one thing and the amount of revenue to some other thing. It can provide the best protection and the least amount of problems. It is essential in a country, and should be very important to you. If it is not, then it definitely should be.

Go Business: This MBA

People have said a lot of things about me over the course of my life. The most popular things were stupid and crazy. They got the stupid part wrong, and I put all my crazy into my short horror stories.

An MBA is absolutely EXCELLENT. The reason why one would get an MBA is because the of the obvious reasons, it makes you much more business savvy and ready to control the most crucial aspects of a business, which is actually ALL aspects of a business.

Believe it or not, courtesy of UNCC and Ashford University's Forbes School of Business, this will make me the very best Geographer and Dragon-ness I know how to be. 

Geography ws a great starting point. 
The education involved the training that led to all those classes involving visiting actual places to develop research reports, maps, and present and discuss my projects in front of my countless freaking PowerPoints; thanks UNCC. 

And then there was there was the Political Science education, thanks again UNCC, Six Sigma TQM training from South Piedmont Community, and of course, an MBA with Project and Environmental Management Specializations.

There is no part of the government or any entity that can say that I cannot handle any project that I go after. They could say my administrative EXPERIENCE is lacking because of the lack of an internship.

However, I have given companies countless work for free over several months. If that's not an internship, I don't know what is.

The FIRST reason for this post is to reiterate the fact that, of course, the MBA is not for the weak. But also, you NEED an MBA. 

This business education consists of every single component needed to run a business, how important it is, why it is important, improving upon it, and the importance of finding a great accountant. 

Accounting and Finance is grueling if you are not a math person. I am not a math person.
You need the in-depth papers that will show that you understand management and business theories independently when it comes to the knowledge that one must have when running a business. 
If you are going to RUN your own thing, you NEED an MBA. If you're going to APPLY for grant and RUN that thing; you NEED an MBA...


The MBA is not necessarily about running somebody else's business for them. It is often obtained so most people can run their  own business. 

I have to put this out there because it is a very popular belief of companies that he MBA is for their business. It isn't.. As soon as a person that has an MBA applies to work for a company, the first thing that MOST HR Personnel think is that the applicant wants to run the company. 
Some often think we are appyling to their company for a leadership position. No, no way. 
Some MBAs may, but only for those Fortune 500 companies that offer things like Investment Banking or Global Operations Management, however, not usually for an average company. 


Second, the MBA is for the ones who want to be of service to the economy in products or services and jobs. Of course, the plan is to run your own company just not all by yourself. There's that lingering word stupid again. It is also to sustain a company and contribute to the existence of the American Dream. 

Last, having the MBA is important in showing that you have the capacity to run a company, to handle your goals and objectives, to show that you are a hard-worker, to show you have no problem with understanding and developing ideas, plans, and strategies for all the challenges that may befall you while running a company. 

You get all this behind you when you get an MBA, and don't you dare let anyone tell you that it is worthless.

Education is only WORTHLESS to the FOOL. 

So to all the MBAs, develop, create, grow, sustain, promote, become a GOOD dragon, do it all and do it excellently. Let nothing hinder you nor drive you away from what you need and want to give or provide.

I would say the world is yours, but somebody may compare you to a gangster movie and ruin your whole image for nothing. 

However, I do think the world can be run by you.

Go Green: See Why We Need More Land-Use Planning Than Anything Else?

... See this? 
This comes from Land-Use Planning gone bad. That this Mountain Lion can even be in the same vicinity of an area to climb up a light pole is just too much and too bad.

Some people laugh at this and ignore it, but this can or could have caused some major issues. 

There could be a fire caused by a broken power line, death of a person in the encounter of a Mountain Lion, death of the Mountain Lion because of the encounter with a human and a gun, or death of the Mountain Lion because of the damned power line. 

In the report, there is a school bus and children laughing as the animal was so afraid of humans, and of course, the noise of children, it climbed up a light pole to get away. 

Now, I understand getting away from the noise, but the notion of climbing that pole in the hopes that it is a normal tree used to escape is what is sad and dangerous. 

And then there is a school bus passing through, so one has to wonder how close the school is to this animal's habitat. 

For goodness sakes, the USDA Forest Service says that Mountain Lions are often drawn to children.

Well, Geographers, that are working as one, you can do what I can't do. You can offer better Land-Use Planning strategies to prevent further development on the Mountain Lion's habitat. 

You can unite and suggest a mandate in your State on the basis of public and animal safety that proclaims that property and power lines have to be built at least a couple of square miles away from the Mountain Lion's habitat and that vegetation must be left high and dense. 
And in the event of dealing with an area close to the desert, Palm Trees can suffice when thinking of high vegetation. 

This is a simple small strategy that can fix a problem that can become big or much worse for people and the Mountain Lion. 

The developers don't lose the opportunity to build. The Mountain Lion doesn't lose its habitat. Nobody gets eaten and no animal gets shocked to death.

Go Green: i, The Geographer & Land Use Planning

The environment is my everlasting case as a Geographer. The application of GIS is a no-go. The Cartography however is always useful. I am a Strategist and Planner at heart. It's what I love.

The protection of the environment with respect to the habitats of animals and microorganisms are all based on human actions.

The idea and application of Land-Use Planning is generally looked upon as being the most strategic. It involves making the world comfortable for humans, animals, and the environment. 

People say that big business with the development of homes is the reason for so much used land and the destruction of habitats. They are right. Overpopulation for employment that can occur because of the the influx of businesses is a common trend and necessity.

The Geographer gets the notion that asking companies to just yield is a no-go. Asking people to not move to a better job or their first job, is just plain stupid. And the notion of asking businessmen and women to refrain from creating businesses, is stupid not because of the general public but the business owner's love of money.

The best thing a Geographer can do is provide the best strategies that allow the land to be used in a way that separates people from animal's habitats, water cleaning algae, and other microorganisms, while still providing the best location for the businesses and residents.

This control is not to stifle the money-hungry business owner. I am a fan of businesses. I am a fan of money-hungriness, this and they provide jobs, create and sustain a middle class, and keep countries running efficiently and profitably.

At least, they could/can. As a Geographer, I am promoting efficient and resourceful development.

Not that the notion of not polluting, not running a vehicle every single day, capping how much of a chemical a company can emit into the atmosphere, controlling run-off, waste, and so forth, do not help. 

This definitely helps protect and maintain the environment. There's even solar paneling, which is just marvelous for people with a normal or smaller sized house. Those with the big houses have to pay prices that make me want to run away screaming. 
Any other innovations, such as hydropower works, tiny homes are environmentally efficient, and recycling is also a plus. All this helps. All this, these measures, should always be promoted. 

The point I'm making with this post is that with all changes in development, the environment has to be considered first. We need it healthy and strong before most things.
However, the ability to see and apply strong swift strategies in regards to protecting the environment, avoiding animal habitats and the location of microorganisms, with the addition of an expanding population and growing businesses, which is also a country-wide necessity, exists only in God-given strategy and idealism. The approach should be the primary focus before demand.

Go Business: Modern Day Slavery

What is modern day slavery? It is persons who are taken advantage of and/or exploited.
Modern day slavery, regarding labor, is when an institution demands 100% of your hard work in labor, but does not pay you enough to live. 

After recently seeing many incidents of low pay, shortened hours, and watching the documentary movie, The True Cost, the epidemic of over-working for pennies is an all too common trend that illuminates modern day slavery today. 

In the documentary movie, India appears to allow their people to work through the worse conditions, in the worse plant conditions, in which people were killed. India's citizens make only pennies a month. 

This type of labor today, which consists of people working for less than the cost of living, occurs all over the world. It can fuel injustice and injustice can fuel violence.

The reason for this blog is to promote awareness worldwide. There is no excuse for paying someone pennies, or what can be considered too less to make a living, for the labor they provide. 


Governments need to demand fairness. In the movie the government in these Least-Developed Countries just allow these things to happen. 

Most of the reason they allow this is because they take pay-offs for silence and ignorance towards the situation. This does not just happen in these Least-Developed Countries, but all over the world. Not all leaders can be bought, however, most of them can. 

Any government that has embraced the obligation of the public service role is obligated to be in favor of what will help, please, and satisfy the needs of the public. If not, then that institution should not label themselves a governing body. 

Here in the United States, the cost of living has gone up since the 1980s and 2009. The government here fosters modern day slavery because they have not updated the Minimum Wage Law.  

The current minimum wage law allows companies to pay as low as $7.25 an hour in some areas, which is below the cost to live in almost all areas of the U.S. 

Until this law is updated, people will be faced with needing government assistance to live. 


One cannot place the blame completely on the government. Most large businesses would rather lay-off than pay employees more money. This also hurts individuals or citizens. 

This can also hurt the changes the government makes to benefit society. The change to a higher minimum wage must be a joint effort. It cannot work when the government demands this change and businesses decide they do not like it and will lay-off 30 or 60% of their employees. 

Even in India, people that own the manufacturing businesses must change also. They need to have some consideration for their own people and demand more from these companies looking for laborers. 

However, one must also realize that these same plant owners are in a tough position. If they should demand more from these business owners, they may take their labor needs elsewhere. Businesses must want the same changes that the government does and vice versa. 

What Can Be Done?

What can fix, change, and regulate the way business is negotiated worldwide? The Trade Agreements Act that was created in 1979 could help with this. This is another Act that needs to be updated.

It needs to hold businesses accountable for their waste as well as create new rules in regards to labor and demand. In other words, it needs to be expanded with some consideration towards workers everywhere. 
The World Trade Organization could help with this as well. With the update of this Agreement, and the unification of governments, fair labor practices can be established worldwide.

Go Lifestyle: Prosperity & Peace

In today's world, the notion of having peace has been accompanied with prosperity. It is presumed that when one has money they are able to sleep better, eat better, be free and have a lifestyle of their own. 

That having money is tied to whether or not one can have peace in life ruins life. In my opinion, the more one allows money to dictate their peace of mind the more miserable life can be. 

It occurs to me that it is a healthier alternative to never allow money to control my behavior, my feelings about myself, how decisions are made, and what decisions are made. 

Having no money, or not having as much money as a person who is rich, upper middle class, or wealthy, may not ever happen. And if it never happens, does anyone really want money tied to their ability to have peace? 

Does it not seem that one would be living a miserable life for the rest of their lives if they allow themselves to live for prosperity?

I have found that if one wants to be happy, they have to first know who they are and what they truly want. 
Every day that anyone goes to and fro, they have already created their own lifestyle. They are always free to add to this unless it requires buying into something.

Some of us desire a lot of money, and we really have no use for it.  Money is nothing but a means to living on Earth. 
It is good to have a lot of it, it handles taxes, bills, necessities, and wants. Otherwise, it is nothing. 

Money can contribute to more lifestyle changes than being without a lot of money can. Money is great to have, but you cannot really Live La Vida Loca on it for too long before you become homeless and get into some extreme debt. It still has to be managed and sustained.

All this tiny blog is saying is that one should examine themselves before they decide to feel like crap because they do not have a lot of money. 
Examine what you really want in life and who you are before you allow yourself to have no peace unless you are rich or wealthy.
