"Teach a man to fish rather than to give him fish!"


1 January 2001
OPERATION SAFE HAVEN

“Operation Safe Haven” is a far reaching proposal to build “Safe Haven Villages” for refugees in ancestral homelands of war torn regions in Africa. Each Village should offer safe shelter for 10’000 – 16’000 refugees/asylum seekers. If id 2002, mankind is able to establish, “Peace Parks” for animals in Africa, why wouldn’t it be possible to create neutral “Peace Zones” for human beings?

Old Lime/Connecticut, U.S.A. 2001: MOSQUITO KILLER
15 Year old USA high school junior Michael Nyberg invented the "larvasonic" he calles an "accoustic larvicide system" - "a West Nile Virus killer". His invention could battle West Niles virus by killing larvae using sound frequencies. The device works by converting power from a rechargeable battery into sound energy, which is transmitted through an antenna into water. The emitted frequency causes the mosquito larva's air bladder to rupture surrounding tissue. The devices, which would cost from about $4'000 for a small handheld version to $50'000 for the sewage-treatment variety, would sell for a fraction of the cost of chemical treatments. Michael and his father Herbert Nyberg started a company called New Mountain Innovations to market the "Larvasonic".
