Why not advertise on the back of clothes homeless people wear? They have a great exposure, as they wander here and there all the day. Advantages of the idea: * The homeless get free clothing and a stipend; * Advertisers get exposure; * Advertisers get a charitable tax receipt.

This system will bridge the gap between homelessness and working class. It's a system where people can work for a few hours and in return are given points they can exchange for accommodation. There are 300,000 homeless people of working age in England even more in the US. My inspiration has come from homeless people that work in third world countries. Local businesses that contribute will outsource work to the homeless on a minimum rate per hour bases. The work could be carried out at a...

In China and Russia, amongst others kids with a talent are taken and are taught to use this talent to the fullest. Some of the worlds greatest painters, musicians, athletes, mathmaticians, etc. have been made this way. Schooling in the UK produces boring unremarkable individuals with mediocre skills. I would suggest all children should have the same education however some talented and hard working kids should be offered an education with a specialisation. These kids should be taught a...

The internet has set information free to anyone who desires it. Intellectual property is going to soon become a thing of the past. I believe the next step for the internet to help create a better global society is for a commerce managing database/search engine to be created where there is no currency and things are traded on the basis of desire. jobs are created on the basis of necessity. Everyones skills and interests are known by this database, and they will be suggested tasks or...

Virtually all of the discussions on how to reduce gas consumption and traffic congestion involves increasing the supply: Pump more oil, refine more gasoline, build more roads, more busses, new transit systems. Yes, we need to do those things and more; but, we can make faster, highly effective gains with very little cost through a relatively painless adjustment in our livestyles. Let's institutionalize the 4-day work week. Here's what it can do: *Reduce commuting traffic by as...

Many people would like to have a speed camera in their neighbourhood. This will contribute to a safer environment for the kids, because the cars that pass by will slow down. Why not make a speed camera look a like, that people could set up.

Here in America we use reusable material bags to be eco-friendly but, I think in the long run we need to produce a thin leather grocery bag that can be treated to be water proof and still be flexable. Just an idea. We get money savings for just bring our own bags too the store to not waste the enviroment.

Lots of old ladies alone in their apartments or houses feel vulnerable and they are. Imagine maybe they could feel more secure if.... On the back of their front foor is a device that - if someone makes a commotion at the door, loud knocking or pushing - triggers a tape recordering of a large dog growling ferociously. Could help, if just outside the door on the porch or the landing there was a pretty large, empty of course, dog food bowl with MAX written on the side.

Lets introduce a paging device to empower the user of the card, the device which will be two way communication enabled (similar to a pager) small-size (that of a key chain) will establish a direct link between the customer and the bank from which the money is drawn. Whenever a transaction is attempted the bank sends the page to the device describing the transaction briefly eliciting a response from the user. On positive identification of the transaction (the user selects yes) and sends the...

Scholarships for college awarded to high school students usually come from colleges themselves or philanthropic sources. One important stakeholder in having a well-educated workforce is corporate America. Companies should sponsor prestigous college scholarships for promising students as they are graduating from high school for a commitment to work for the company for a certain period of time. The military does this effectively through the academies and ROTC. Corporations need to contribute...
