How to Green the Desert and Reverse the Climate Change

One day, we may reach to the point that we do not pollute our planet with all this carbon emission but it is not going to be enough with the ongoing desertification which makes the land not sufficient to feed us. Mr. Savory has a great solution which has no cost and totally feasible. Perfect video to get more optimistic about future.

Do We Need A Teacher?

On our own, we can study from books or from online classes such as edx.org or coursera.org. We can learn a lot like this. Sometimes it works, but most the times it does not for many people. The reason laying behind this might be that when we are on our own, we lack the factor of motivation. We need motivation to learn. So what I think is that if we have somebody to monitor us, just to observe what we are doing, we will have the motivation we seek. I would like to test this hypothesis that existence of somebody to monitor us in a learning environment in which we study would be enough for us to learn, we do not need teachers, we only need motivation. If this idea becomes successful, then in the future we may see some institutions where people, who do not have any expertise in the area you learn, will help you study and learn.

FREE SOFTWARE TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY

StayFocusd (Chrome Addon)

This is an addon on your internet browser to limit access to websites that you do not want to spend your time on. For example, you can limit your access to social web for 30 minutes and after you reach the limit you need to wait another day. The nice thing is that program does not allow you the change the settings in any way about limits in the same day after you reach the limit. This addon on Chrome has been helpful for me to make more of my time on the internet. It is a very well thought, feature rich and constantly developing application.

Blue Coat K9 Web Protection (Desktop Application)

BlueCoat is basically a parental control application but for me, it works very well for two other reasons rather parental control.

First you can set up times for to automatically block all the internet. If you are having problems about shutting the pc down when it gets late that you are supposed to sleep, this program is for you. If prevents all the internet connection in all browsers in a time that you set. And it does shut down the pc automatically, just prevent the internet connection thus if you have an unsaved work, you can first save it.

Second way I benefit is that it can block some specific websites in all your browsers. StayFocusd is working only on Chrome but Blue Coat works in all browsers. So as an example, you can limit your access to Facebook on StayFocusd and you can block your access completely to some timewasting websites that you are addicted on Blue Coat.

The main downside of the program could be that all the control is based on a password. If you know the password, it may be tempting for you to log in and cancel the blocking. So I suggest you to have your friend or family to set up the password.

ColorNote (Android Application)

Whether on a paper agenda or on your mobile phone or in another way, note taking is a must. This is a mobile application for android phone owners. If you like to take notes on your android phone, I would suggest ColorNote. It is an offline application, so you do not need internet to take notes. You can take your notes in the form of text or checklist. You can color some notes and set reminders at a time or recurring. And you can set snychronisation so you never lose your notes.

Learn Online from the Best Schools for Free

Online education has become so advanced that now we can learn in a more efficient and effective way than on-campus education. It is way beyond just watching lecture videos. Plus the video, there are homework, assignments, quizzes, final exams, course projects, course books etc. Simply everything you have in a classic university course. Depending on the course, you might be required to form groups to work with. Or sometimes professor of the course travels some cities around the world, so you may be lucky enough to meet your professor from overseas. Slowly, it is going to the next level, which is university recognition of the online courses you have completed successfully. Already some online courses are recognized by some institutions. * Online education is not the future of education. It is happening right now. You can start learning today. 

There are many websites out there. These are my favorites:
Coursera.org
Edx.org
Udacity.com
Khan Academy.org

SOLAR PANELS

Germany, Spain, China and Saudi Arabia are just some of the countries that invest a lot in renewable energy. It is said that Turkey as well has a big potential for that. I wonder when we will start seeing this kind of very big solar fields in Turkey.
