Soil Dam Printer Friendly Version
We are worried about soil erosion filling our water dams with soil, leaving us with no more water in them and loss of rich soil from higher areas. So what if it is possible to build a dam or small dams near the place where soil erosion is taking place? It may stop the soil where it belongs and not fill our water dams.
PS. If u happen to know any Dam Builders please inform them about this idea on this website.
Reward: send bcc mail to everyone, ask them to goto creativitypool.com and search for "zyx", because more people know about it the greater are its chances of implementation.

Recycling Momma! Printer Friendly Version
We are the richest nation in the world. Even in the poorest neighborhoods routinely people (and mainly women/mothers) discard clothing. This is as a result of cleaning out a closet or a child's dresser due to that child outgrowing their clothes. More often then not the lot of clothes is clean and in good repair. After all, it is coming straight from a closet or dresser. In stead of taking these things to a thrift store or shelter usually we are too busy so we just throw it away. The idea is to have people label these bags...red for women's clothes, blue for men's clothes, pink for girl and powder blue for boy--trite but effective. The trash bag with these clothes could be placed on the curb the day before trash pick up. If anyone can use them, they are free to pick up the entire bag. They can then take what they like, pass on the rest, take it to a thrift store or shelter or discard same.
Rules would be simple: Bags would have a size written in appropriate color. Bags put out for the recycle would contain only clean clothes in good repair. Pick up would be allowed only during day light hours. Pick up would not be allowed for picking through clothes on the street. The landfills would get a break and we would be passing on and sharing a huge resource. Our interdependence would be supported. This would require a grassroots effort. Note: even if these bags were regularly picked up by people using them to make a profit, it would be better served then going into the ground.

Celebrate Education every Month Printer Friendly Version
I have seen students suffer when their year is down (failed), some have even committed sucide. This happens because students start studying when exam comes close by and there is too much accumulation of syllabus.
Hence the solution lies in creating 10 standards out of today's every class, i.e. if students passes today's sixth class then it will be termed as 60th in the new system. There will be only one final exam consisting of all subjects thought for that month, i.e. in a year there will be 10 exams and each of one month's syllabus.
In this system students will study at the end of every month and the best of all is that if they fail then they will lose only one month of their life, i.e. if one fails in std 11 then he remains there for next month only because std 11 will be only for one month.
Please tell this idea to education authorities if u know any.
