A clever campaign based on the notion that many bystanders choose not to intervene when they see street harassment because they assume that the person being harassed is somehow complimented by it. These videos, created by a community in Chicago with

Sometimes recycling is just not so convenient. It is these times that you ask yourself questions like: “would this one bottle of coke really make a difference? How much difference would one bottle make?” The common answer is “every bottle counts” but

Hi Jamie Alissa, would be great to have you on-board and help with brainstorming or any other aspect of further developing it. Please also applaud the idea if you liked it. This can help it get more exposure and give it a change to be developed.

Thanks for accepting. My idea needs some polishing and I would really appreciate any feedback.

Women in the developing world are usually very entrepreneurial many have catering, handicrafts, etc. businesses. The only difference is that they don't realise that they're actually running a business. We could create startup aggregators that help th

Jamie Beck commented on Preventing Mosquito the local and effective way

Jamie Beck commented on Desiccant embedded PPE suit to keep PPE dry and bearable

A few other questions to consider:

1) What kind of information would need to be included in the packs that will help with training on how to use and safe protocol, especially in donning and doffing?

2) Distribution - how will these be distributed to remote communities that need them?

3) Manufacturing - who can manufacture these packs in a wearable version?

Hi, thanks for the great idea. Have you gotten any clarity around what is contained inside the packs? Calcium chloride, or other desiccant? What information do you need in order to move this idea forward?
