Green / Arts Community in NC Mountains Posted 3/23/2013
High Cove is a new community in the mountains of Western North Carolina, focused on the arts, environmental stewardship, and life-long learning. We draw inspiration from several models, including intentional community, eco-village, and New Urban design.
Our 110 acres include a forest preserve, hiking trails, and an organic farm site. We offer lots for sale (and occasional rentals). We would be happy to partner with folks interested in building co-housing. In addition to home sites, a small, mixed-use village center is planned. In keeping with sustainability values, all houses must be green-built and built to last. Small houses, including tiny houses, are welcome. House lots are priced from $35,000 - $79,000 and include road and utility infrastructure (underground electric, water, phone, and high speed internet/cable. Most sites offer good passive solar orientation and border on the forest preserve.
High Cove is located in a rural setting, near the renowned Penland School of Crafts, in an area alive with potters, woodworkers and other crafts workers. We’re less than an hour from downtown Asheville. The culture reflects the members, who tend to be independent but collaborative, progressive, smart, and quirky. Many members are involved with art/craft/music, but that is not a requirement. We welcome diversity. The community is in an early stage of life (7 households in residence), so well-suited to folks with energy and a desire to take an active role in

Africans, Stop Being Poor! Posted 3/21/2013
This book describes the necessary growth rate African countries should imperatively target to boost the developing process.
Over 19 chapters of concise and precise wording the author provides useful information (on how other nations vanquished poverty), made practical investment's suggestions and financing research solutions/alternatives, debunked initiatives crippling/misleading false economic doctrines and dogma, to devising an Integrated Development Scheme, that, if well implemented, would yield double-digit growth rates, year in year out for lengthy periods of 10, 20, 30 years and more.
This is not utopia. Indeed, a performance scenario applied to a Least Developed African country shows the economy sky rocketing and yielding average annual growth rate of 21% (twenty one percent) over a ten-year period.
The book provides score of useful information and made practical investment/financing suggestions on how the country could maintain the double-digit growth rate path over 20, 30 years and more - using "economic development catalyst investments" to strengthen the inter relation between agricultural sector, industries and services.
The book demonstrates there is no reason African countries would perpetually remain in the league of the wretches of the world.

How To Govern Any Community Posted 8/26/2012
"How To Govern Anything: Ocean Government"
In this book, discover the first new major government system to be developed in centuries, a form of government that also functions as its own think tank.
This book was many years in the making. Some lyrics in the song “Revolution” by the Beatles can be interpreted to mean that any revolution without a new plan is pointless. This interpretation challenged FitzMaurice to create a new and better plan for governments. The result he calls “Ocean Government”. The excuses end now. For the right method to use to cause a revolution, visit http://www.aeinstein.org/. For the right method to use to rule after the revolution, use this book.
Ocean Government is advantageous for governing countries, corporations, colleges, communes, co-operatives, clubs, churches, temples, institutions, schools, and organizations of any kind. Ocean Government will work for Communist States, Democracies, Dictatorships, Monarchies, Noocracies, Oligarchies, Presidential Republics, Parliamentary Republics, Socialist Republics, Theocracies, or any form of government. It is simple to set up and easy to continue. There is every reason to switch to the Ocean Government system, and no reason not to give up antiquated systems of government. This book gives you all the tools and knowledge you need to institute the superior Ocean Government form of government today. The only financial cost to you is the cost of this book.
