Homeless Employment Printer Friendly Version
We need to engage the homeless and encourage employment. An easy job for them is to recycle! The government will provide them with big plastic bags and they must collect Aluminum cans or other recyclable items.
The homeless will get paid for this. After collecting 10 pounds, they get a gift of some kind.
Reward: A smile.

Electricity from Concentrated Wind Printer Friendly Version
How can wind be concentrated, by collecting that which it blows? Wherever the wind blows there is energy. Wind mills are successful but have requirements which limit their effectiveness. This idea has limits, but may be effective in places where windmills are not.
This process begins with a pile of fine sand placed at the bottom of a chute which will funnel the blowing sand up into a container. The container is supported on a spring which begins to compress as the container fills with sand. As the spring compresses, attached gears turn a generator. When the spring is fully compressed, at a point above the initial position of the sand pile, the container dumps the sand into a chute which funnels the sand back to its initial position. The spring then continues to generate electricity as it lifts the container back to its initial position. The process then begins again.
Reward: Satisfaction and joy

First response displays with cameras linked live in a city with high crime rate, tourism, or just go the extra mile.

To offset costs of installation i have figured advertising would pay back debt in less than 5 years, which would include WiFi accounts, fees, and other income assumed by the city, this could be the most profitable system EVER. It would make bridges look like stepping stones.
