The Hello Hub: Nigerian Free Solar Powered Education Kiosk

IMG_4148.JPG

Seven months after terrorists kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria, many local students are afraid to go to school. In other parts of the country, children don’t go to school because schools don’t exist; cities and villages can’t afford enough teachers. Across the nation, more than 10.5 million children aren’t in school, more than in any other part of the world.

One Nigerian city now has a prototype of a new type of education that doesn’t involve a school or teachers. The Hello Hub is an outdoor computer kiosk hooked up to free, solar-powered Internet and filled with hundreds of educational games. It’s rugged enough to handle dust storms, rain, and thousands of users. Built and owned by the community, it’s available for anyone–adults or children–to use anytime.

The project was inspired in part by Sugata Mitra, the 2013 TED Prize winner who argues that schools as we know them are obsolete. Mitra has shown in experiments that self-directed learning works; children in slums or remote locations who were given a computer, and zero instruction, were able to teach themselves things like English and even the basics of biotechnology. In those experiments, the computers were eventually lost or broken, so the Hello Hubs take a different approach.

“We don’t show up in a community and build a Hello Hub for them,” says MacMillan. “If we were to do that, it would take a day to knock up a Hello Hub, put it on Facebook, and get out. But it wouldn’t last, and I don’t think people would value it or use it as much as they do. I think it would be likely to go unmaintained after a while–that’s what Mitra’s research shows.”

Instead of giving a donation, the project involves the entire community. “We take parts of the tech and the expertise, but we don’t have what we need to complete it,” MacMillan explains. The community has to help negotiate for the solar power, find the land, feed and transport the visitors from the organization–and help build the computer kiosk from scratch, sometimes building and taking apart the server several times so everyone who wants to can learn how it works.

The Benefits of an Alkaline Electric Foods Diet

image

An electric food is food that is completely natural, completely ingenious of the Earth and 100% living. Electric foods are non-hybrid, not genetically modified, non-irradiated. Our bodies are alive, which make human beings dependent on a living life force. Energy makes us move. Electrical food animates our electric bodies. They help to increase the copper within the nervous system promoting a greater activation and use of your brain and senses. Sadly, about 80% of the common foods that are the norm in the American diet is not electric.  To top it off, almost 93% of the food that makes up the normal American diet is not even real.

Most of us are overweight because we are starving on a cellular level because we are not receiving the proper vitamins & nutrients that we need.  When this happens we continue to eat, because our biological system is still in need and this causes us to become overweight. The nutrients we need are not in the proper form from most of the foods we eat. When these nutrients are listed on the nutritional labels, typically on “organic” labeled foods – these vitamins and minerals most likely are not in the proper state for which our bodies can assimilate. Typically, they are also highly acidic. High acidic foods are the opposite of alkalinity, which causes a block in the absorption of nutrients on a cellular level. GMO’s are associated with the causes of cancers, deformities in babies because they are invasive on the genetic level. Imagine a gas tank full of debris. Hard, calcified debris. This is your body on the average American diet.

What are some examples of hybrid food? The carrot, the grapefruit, seedless grapes, the orange orange, the pale potato, almost 80% to 90% of the worlds corn and rice, almost 95% of the large tomato (except the small cherry tomato), the non-whole-grain wheat, the soybean… and the list continues.
Find yourself allergic to certain fruits? Allergic to soy? Allergic to wheat? Allergic to gluten? It’s just your body’s way of rejecting what is not natural.  Its a signifier that something is not right.

Organic meats are also available in stores, but one cannot ensure the lineage of the animal. Once changes are made to an animal for generations, those changes taint the genetic cellular structure of the animal. Thus, even organic meats can be produced from animals with no “Electric” or natural lineage.

Many Vegans chow down on tofu, which is made from the genetically engineered soybean.  They believe they need it because of “Protein”.  However, what they do not realize is that the essential amino acids that make up the cellular strand of “protein” is not in the proper state for the body to assimilate in tofu, nor the soybean.  Same with the black bean, due to the acidity (anything above the pH level of 7 is alkaline).

If we do not have access to real food, we will starve on a cellular level.  We will not grow properly and are susceptible to cellular overgrowth (cancer).  We won’t have enough mental megahertz to really understand what is happening in the world. Below you’ll find a list of recommended Electric Foods.
