Things Are Getting Better with the Denver Day Works Program

Since the city of Denver launched Day Works at the end of 2016, 284 people have participated over the course of the last year. Now, “110 of the participants (many of whom were homeless) have found long-term work as a result.” Individual attention made a big difference in creating hope and positive attitudes needed for employment.

We Live on a Planet of Abundance

It’s time to think outside the old box, time to work with this precious planet that is our home. If we, as a species,  change the way we think and adopt more sustainable new systems, we will not just survive, we will thrive.  The ideas presented in this short but powerful video could save us. I hope you’ll consider sharing it.

We can all do something.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Innovative Bubble CPAP Saves Lives

Fulfilling a promise he made 20 years ago, Dr. Mohammod Jobayer Chisti developed a bubble CPAP device starting with a shampoo bottle.  The current device costs  $1.25 (£1), compared to $15,000 (£11,000) for ventilators many developing countries cannot afford. A two year study indicated the simpler innovation decreased mortality rates by 75%.
