  3. Weekend 9/21/2019 #rmweekends Atletico Madrid vs RC Celta in Spain- by the third minute, the set piece quality from Atleti returned. This match for me was the second big test of the rotation system for Simeone this season. The rotation recovered a loss at the Wanda. The rotation starting Felipe side Correa, each a potent player. Atletico transitioned well in this game. The one flaw was the cognition from defenders to pass to open wide players. Atletico didn't use their width enough, when they did Celta was exposed. By 69:43 Atleti through Lodi crosses had many chances to score, but none of the crosses were reached. Trippier side Lodi are the replacements to Juan Fran/Felipe Luis Atletico needed. In the end, Lodi made the crosses but we just couldn't touch them. the season is long. Sevilla will drop points more points. Highlights- atleti came close but no cigar, luckily Barcelona are proving absent Messi what real madrid are proving absent cr7, that psg having neymar/mbappe is looking a very wise investment https://www.weibo.com/tv/v/I82iji67q?fid=1034:4419153931741182 In Amendment To Sarri led Juventus, I saw his time at Empoli or Napoli. And Napoli showed Sarri is a very good coach, but he is for midtable teams not top of the table teams. To Atletico women- They lost 6-1 against Barca women, though Sampedro scored first and that is a good sign. Atletico won three straight domestic titles in spain, hard fought. I can accept a modulating season as some players in atleti are fatigued, many spanish flag players, who have been very busy too. It is hard being the champions season after season. The atleti/barca matches dictate the spanish womens champion usually in the past five seasons. Same as OL/PSG in the french womens league. https://twitter.com/Lola_Gallardo1/status/1175452424926093313 To premier edition trophee des championnes femenines - Olympique Lyonnais femenines defeated PSG femenines to win the first Trophee des Championnes for women. It was 4-3 Amel MAjri earned player of the match. https://twitter.com/UWCL/status/1175450413950279680

  5. @Troy No, the Kindle handles Amazon's ebook format, Mobi. Kobo uses the open format Epub. Epub is not Kobo's epub is for anyone to use, Kobo reads epub and pdf's. Kindle read Mobi and pdf. That is what i meant about amazon. They knew being first to have an ereader, they had a chance to use their own ebook format exclusively. Epub was made and is used mostly throughout the industry. But in the usa, the market of amazon pulls toward mobi while outside the usa it is epub.
  6. How long ago was you working at the shipyard ? And it must've been really strange seeing those signs,that's for sure. Hopefully, I'll get time to watch Marshall today.
  7. Well, we can start with 'Fox News' own survey and end with a recent Gallup poll: Donald Trump hasn’t even been in the White House for three years, but a new poll shows that America is already tired of his presidency. According to a Fox News survey, the Trump administration has left 52 percent of the country feeling exhausted. Only 37 percent say this president has made them feel energized about politics. The finding tracks with Trump’s alarmingly high disapproval rating, which stands at 54 percent. Just 45 percent of those surveyed approve of his job performance. That’s not the only finding in the poll that should worry Trump’s reelection campaign. Fox News also found that the American people are starting to feel increasingly uncomfortable about the nation’s economic situation. Nearly half of respondents say the current economy makes them feel “nervous,” while 37 percent feel “confident” about it. The economy that Donald Trump inherited from Barack Obama and Joe Biden is the only thing keeping his numbers from completely falling through the floor. But as his trade war continues to push the U.S. toward an economic slowdown – already costing the country 300,000 jobs – Trump is on the verge of losing the only thing that has kept his reelection campaign afloat up to this point. President Donald Trump pays more public attention to his job approval rating than any recent president in my experience. Unlike Bush, Trump generally doesn't discount the overall importance of job approval ratings. In fact, Trump's frequent references to the measure legitimize its importance in his estimation, even as he often criticizes specific polls. Trump has employed three basic approaches to job approval ratings. First, he supports and quotes job approval measures when they are to his liking, underscoring his basic acceptance of the measure as a valid indicator of his performance. Second, he often claims his approval rating would be 20 or 30 points higher if not for various impediments, including the Fed and the "fake news media." This too legitimizes the underlying concept of using the approval rating as a measure of performance. Third, he dismisses specific approval ratings he doesn't like, calling them "fake" or "suppression polls," alleging that various pollsters are deliberately attempting to make his approval too low. This doesn't mean Trump is dismissing job approval ratings per se, just certain specific polling results that don't fit his self-conception. A valuable attribute of the job approval measure comes from the historical context it provides -- going back to the days of World War II. Trump's job approval rating in Gallup's latest survey is 39%. We can say that Trump's current 39% is well below the historical average of 53% across all presidents since Harry Truman, and is below where Dwight Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were in September of their third year in office after first being elected. Trump's rating is higher than Jimmy Carter's 30% to 33% ratings in September of his third year in office (1979), and just slightly below Barack Obama's 40% to 43% weekly averages in September of his third year (2011). Careful brother, you're starting to sound the sycophants' excuses for supporting 45. NEWs FLASH! Pence, angelical Christians and far doctrines are already here, for quite some time now.

  9. I am interested in a book review: Requested By: Deborah Elum Author's Name: Fred O. Jones One Lost Boy: A Memoir of a Missing Childhood ISBN13: 978-1-7339510-0-5 Publication Date: May 2019 Synopsis: One Lost Boy: A Memoir of A Missing Childhood is a coming-of-age story of a stolen childhood. Fred was a young boy whose family worked as sharecroppers picking cotton on an African American owned plantation in Texas. His childhood is a moving story of adversity, hardship, and sacrifice. Throughout his life, he has overcome barriers and gained wisdom that transformed him into the man he is today.
  10. Yes, but what you are failing to realize is that ... (pausing briefly as I get on top of my chair to yell as loudly as I can) THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE!! Amazon actually adversely affects FAR MORE white people than Black people. How many websites are there like AALBC.... Answer: None! Is it because of racism? No, it is because the world wide web is dominated by a few companies who crush competitors big and small in ways you don't appreciate. Great Black book websites have been killed in the crib and the barrier to entry for new ones is far too high. Sure, Amazon is run and largely owned by white people. Now some of white people may actually be racist, but that is immaterial, as the motivation of these people is making more money. Amazon does not discriminate; they will crush a Borders and B&N just as quickly as they would an AALBC -- indeed Amazon isn't even thinking about an AALBC. You are so desperate to attribute the actions of white people to racism that you'd rather believe poor white people are "actors" or willingly sacrificing themselves in the name of racism while completely ignore what another Black man is telling you about his experience in the real world. The problem of the 21st century is still the color line, but that color is green.
  11. Yep I spoke to Calvin at PW a day or two after I published the Blog post. A indie publisher in Brooklyn, Melville House, also covered the piece. You should check out their article, as well as the articles they link to in their coverage. They wrote about Amazon converting their Audible audio into ebooks -- in defiance of publishers wishes! Amazon just doesn't give a f*uk, they are so gangsta! While Amazon is not providing the entire text to read at once (it is apparently being providing as the audiobook is read), this is a technically which essentially give the consumer an ebook when the buy the audiobook. As you know Amazon also owns Audible.
  12. As a bookseller, I'm only going to consider open ebook and audiobook book formats to sell in this website. I focus primarily on physical books, as I have not designed the site to accommodated the site to accommodate multiple formats of the same book. It is not something I plan to do in the short term. So, if a book is only available in ebook format, I'm only selling and open version. @richardmurray does the Kindle handle Kobo ebooks? I actually have two kindle ebook readers and have not used wither in years. I also have a Nook and I guess this products is obsolete for all practical purposes... I'll probably resuscitate these devices as I begin my research.
  13. Excellent information! North Africa wasn't always a desert. Much of it was lush tropical wetland before the major wars that destroyed many of it's ancient cities. The Taureg are one of many African ethnic groups who are native to North Africa or came out of ancient Kemet and were in that land for thousands of years BEFORE the arrival of the Caucasians (Arabs, Persians, Assyrians, Amazigh, ect....) I personally believe that just about ALL African peoples on the continent have their origins in ancient Kemet and can be traced back to one of the 42 "tribes" of that great kingdom. They all share some aspects of ancient Kemetic science, language, and social customs.
  14. Kareem I forgot to address this part last night........ You also notice how disco was the last CREATIVE genre of black music...where we actually played instrument and MADE music? Today disco is clowned as some circus act. They made stop MAKING music and created "rap" where you sample other people's music and talk over it. They even steal our creativity.   Yes sir. And notice how the often self-destructive "rap" which started back in the late 70s seems to be the longest music genre of AfroAmerican history and like you said nothing new has came out of the youth up until now? We were making up 2 and 3 genres every decade right up until the mid-80s. And notice how the dance styles and dress styles have lost a lot of creativity also. One of the reasons a lot of AfroAmerican artists aren't using musical instruments anymore is because they took music and band out of most public schools! Back in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s......like workshop and automechanic shop.....music was also taught in the schools! You learned how to play the flute, the drums, the piano, and trumpet, ect...FOR FREE in school and a lot of AfroAmericans were coming out of highschool with skills that allowed them to make a good living and even get rich! But another reason they are using fewer instruments in music today is more diabolical..... Our brother Roger Troutman introduced the voice box in the 80s but the demons in the entertainment industry had other plans. Africans were known for thousands of years as having the best and most beautiful voices. But if you notice today, fewer AfroAmerican artists are using their REAL voices, and many of them can't even sing or hold a note. Their REAL voices are being replaced with that computerized robotic "voice box" sound that robs them and their audience of the spiritual VIBRATION of the human voice. Meanwhile a lot of Caucasians who formerly couldn't even hold a note, are sounding like Whitney Houston and hitting all types of notes! Public Enemy asked "who stole the soul"???? We know who. And the same plot is behind taking away real musical instruments like horns, drums, and guitars and replacing them with computerized sounds. Every instrument has it's own set of VIBRATIONS that tune into the body and soul. If you take that away and replace it with computerized sound and robot like sound then you confuse the soul and deprive it of that TRUE VIBRATION that soothes it. They're using computers to lay the tracks for rap, but if you notice in Country Music they are still playing the pianos and guitars.   Troy You give white supremacists too much credit. People who believe in white supremacy are either ignorant or dumb. The fact we are still discussing the concept of race and the supposed superiority of one over the other is just plain stupid. Brother I wish I didn't have to give them any credit at all, but the facts are they RUN THE WORLD. You cannot deny this. You're cussing and shaking your fists at Amazon and other mega-corporations owned and operated by Caucasians, yet want to deny their power and authority. The white boy working in the coal mine, who is addicted to cigarettes, whose livelihood was destroyed by the BP oil spill, or who lost their home in the motgage crisis is not an actor, but is exploited and as disposable as you or I to the oligarchy. The difference between them and you is that they KNOW they are sacrificing themselves for White Supremacy and racism. They may not say it, but they know it and are willing to go along with it because they belong to the "hive" mentality. To be clear you have White actors and White sacrifices: White Actor The White Actors aren't suffering, they are just PRETENDING to suffer in public to garner sympathy and trick people of color into believing that it's not racism that's creating the problems in the world but greed, climate change, sexism, drug epidemic, capitalism, ect...... Their jobs is to RE-DIRECT you and throw you off the path of the real problem and those who are causing it. There is a large "climate change" protest going on today and this is a good example of Actors who are pretending to be outraged about something THEY are responsible for. White Sacrifice The White sacrifices ARE suffering, but they either don't mind or don't care. Ofcourse a few are what you call "cannon fodder" who inadvertently get hurt by the powerful racists when they are aiming at people of color. But the White sacrifices for the MOST part understand the system of White Supremacy and understand their role as peasants and serfs in it and accept their lot in life. They see themselves as sacrificing for a greater "good" or and idea much bigger than themselves. Kind of like how a knight in medival Europe would gladly give his life in honor of the Queen. A good example of this would be the 53% (probably more) of Caucasian women who voted for Trump ALTHOUGH he was clearly caught on tape being sexist and demeaning towards women. They knew his character, they didn't care.....they'll gladly sacrifice themselves and their freedoms for the GREATER cause!
  15. @Pioneer1 You are too much! LOL! Look, I do agree about the Igbo people having a Hebrew presence. But Huh, Well, I need to take a break, so I will 'be nice' for now.
  16. Chev Central/West Asian isn't just one country, but it's a REGION with many countries. I want to say that you often use the term "Hebrew Israelites", but you should know that Hebrews and Israelites are separate terms for 2 different groups that often interwine with eachother. Let me explain................... Hebrews/Ibo While I've repeatedly told you that the original Israelites were mostly Caucasian, the ORIGINAL Hebrews were indeed African. They came from Kemet. Like many of the ethnic groups of ancient Kemet, when it was invaded the Hebrew (Ibiru) people left the land and went further into Africa and their descendants are the IBO/IGBO people of Nigeria today! Although I'm not sure, Moses was PROBABLY of the Hebrew/Ibo peoples of ancient Kemet and when he went up to the Caucasus (Central and West Asia) mountains to civilize those wild tribes most likely the majority of the people he took with him to help him came from the Hebrew/Ibo ethnic group. Incase you didn't know....Moses didn't go by himself. During the time they spent with those wild tribes civilizing and organizing them, the men mated with some of the Caucasian women and they had children and THOSE children were the ancestors and beginning of what you call the "Jews" or Yahudi or Israelites. Because of their African ancestry and closeness to more knowledge, they became the leaders. So the original Israelites were predominately Caucasian but had a lot of African ancestry from the Hebrew/Ibo Africans who sired them. Hebrews = African "Igbo" ethnicity originally from ancient Kemet but now residing in West Africa Israelites = major groups of "chiefs" that Moses and his helpers organized some of the Caucasians into after civilizing them. Again, most of those Israelites were chosen for leadership because they were half or part African from Hebrew/Igbo men mating with Caucasian women which gave them a higher status than the others......similar to how the mixed AfroAmerican slaves who had Caucasian fathers had a higher status than the AfroAmerican slaves who's both parents were African. Now if you'll be nice and don't fight me on this...lol...then I might explain to you where MUSEUMS come from!
  17. CONNECTING History from Past to Present through Words PELOPS = BLACK FACED Ethiop = Ethiopian or Black faced Sinop, Cheops, Cleopatra, Cyclops... OPS means 'to look like'. The Peloponnesian War (431–404 BC) was an ancient Greek war fought by the Delian League led by Athens against the Peloponnesian League led by Sparta. ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peloponnesian_War [25] And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan. GENESIS 10:25. So, this descendant of Shem, named Peleg [ie Phelach] came long before AbraHAM or Jacob or Moses. Black Shem. And, so this man reveals that although, he was an original Shem, however, he marks that the Hebrew Israelites had early Egyptian ancestry. The root word 'EG' in PELEG and TUAREG means EGYPTIAN [ie EGUPTAN]. So today, ancient peoples do NOT apply to us today as it did in the past. We, are all intermixed but, it would be crucial to understand ethnicity, and how ancient dominant cultures developed and progressed overtime. Peleg would have lived during the 2000s BC. [14] And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. EXODUS 17:14. THE KELTOI-------- KEL-------- AmaLEK; The root word KEL-LEK is a common term to define the Berber/Tuareg people. During the Egyptian time period of the 18th Dynasty, this was a very old and common term to define a Canaanite-Magog peoples. And, many original Shem people were intermixed with them overtime, even the Hebrew Israelites. But the early formations was in the NORTHEAST in the Iberian Peninsula and Ancient Anatolia where they developed their first nation during Cush-Babylon times. KELTOI = TRI-KELT culture of people that became absolutely defined by a TRI-TRADE SYSTEM during the COPPER TRADE ERA. And they serviced the Amorite empire builders. And the term TWAREG [ie TWA-] carries the similar meaning of being Trade Masters from this early tri-trade theme that was set up in the most ancient of times. This 'tri-theme' defined their original cultures and their trade cultures. AMORITE = AMOR or ROMA; the original Canaanite Moors or Phoenicians. KULTEPE [ie Kult- Cult, KELTEPE] just to the north of Black-Cush-Babylon thousands of Cuneiform tables were said to be unearthed showing this tri-trade system of the earlier CELT-IBERIANS as they organized due to the Cush Hamites. Kutltepe, Kanesha & Cush-Babylon in Mesopotamia became a thriving era of advanced technology. These early AMALEKITES operated with their Asiatic relations and overthrew the Cush-Babylonians, eventually, however, even by this time, Cush-Ham and the Keltoi were intermixed. So, ancient history depends upon the early cultures that developed, initially based upon patriarch systems and not specific origins. But soon, Matriarchal system of the Asians prevailed and Black kings were overthrown constantly. 2000s BC [15] So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. REVELATION 2: 15. So here, NICOLAITANS or CHOLCHIANS; The origins of Saint NICHOLAS before it became Latinized to Santa Claus. In their origins, their supreme idol was Ashteroth and son from this basis, they become the ancestors of GOG or today's term 'Caucasians'. This history is vast. However, in a nut shell, the beginning formations centered around BAAL WORSHIP, [ie HEADHUNTING], Pedophilia and much more. But here would be the darkness of this human world, in the form of a series of questions: If a little Black baby malefactor becomes a victim of pedophilia because he is 'Black' and 'a male' and his abuser has not been judged, then how does he mature and be normal? If a baby malefactor is victimized by a pedophile and then mature to adulthood and becomes the same, a pedophile and predator upon other little BLACK MALEFACTORS, then should he be excused because his argument would be that he, too was victimized? When Black men are conditioned from birth to be violent against other Black men, where does that leave womankind!? How do we protect our malefactors? Why should Black people target White Supremacy and ignore Black systems that also enslave 'other Black people'? This would be the beginning of what the ancient scriptures are alluding to, about this original son of JapHeth. If a government willfully sets up a system based upon Child victimization and hatred against the priesthood, in order to serve Ashteroth, then, after the 3rd and 4th generation, the scriptures state that system will be judged. Child Sacrifice and Child Exploitation-- the Amorous lovers of ROMA! The Iniquity of the Amorites is now full. Now maybe if people of African descent study what happened during the 18th Dynasty in Egypt, therefore, they might reconsider all ancient scripts including the account of the Exodus. BRIDGING THE GAP -- the Past to the Present
  18. To be clear, I meant white supremacists are ignorant or dumb. White supremacy is, of course, quite real. It is interesting to see I was not the only one who had not heard of Nipsey Hussle until his passing. Again, the media covers the dysfunction (his murder) but not the good he was apparently doing in the community. It is also interesting to hear from Black people who knew nothing about Blank Panther, despite the outsized media coverage -- especially by Black media. I saw the movie and was entertained, but I took it for what it was a low brow Marvel action flick created by white boys for mass appeal. It was visually appealing because it had so many attractive Black people. The film was also refreshing because Black people are shown in powerful roles. I've have always rejected the notion of doing the "Wakandan salute" or embracing anything in Black Panther as if if was some actual representation of Black culture or history. Doing so just reminds me of the void left in old culture because of the european transatlantic slave trade.
  19. @Kalexander2 you keep saying most people what him out. I'm not sure where you are getting this information. I don't even want 45 before out before the election next year because that will mean Pence, an evangelical Christian, would become president -- potentially for 9 years! Between the two options I pick 45 for another year.
  20. cool @Mel Hopkins if you are on writing life, let me know. I have placed books on overdrive, placed books overseas. you have to comprehend, kobo lists books based on the language in different geographies. Tell me what you think of my Nyotenda :) it is a screenplay, but that is a whole other multilog:)
  21. @richardmurray thank you! I remember when you first mentioned Kobo to me awhile back. It takes me some time to digest all the information I take it - but I rarely forget who shared the information. This is excellent background on Kobo and now I see why Walmart joined them. I did sign up with Kobo using my walmart account. I'll be sure to share how the program works for me too.
  22. Dear Readers, I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, through its comments I will posts various topics concerning writing.

  23. What fictional character will you vote for presidency of the USA? I thought about this. IT is a hard one. We as humans beings talk about who will be a leader, but the better question is, what do the people need? I ask you to list, what people need in the usa and then name a character who fits the ability to deliver the items in your list. ... I will not submit, but wait to see what others say.

  24. @Mel Hopkins books and audiobooks for reading or listening:) Music is something I am working on. To any who may see the following I have to go into storytime mode , talking about Kobo, with the advantage of hindsight. The ebook industry's problem began with the firm first to make an ereader, Amazon. Amazon knew, based on how they dominated the eretail market, that people online in the usa are loyal to websites. They do not leave them voluntarily, for the most part. I know this having been forced to leave two blog sites, and only after the second actually doing real searching into what is out there. amazon also knew the only danger to their plan is not having a large library and not having a growing new publications list. Amazon thus opened their writing program and converted as many books as possible into ebooks, using their system. The last piece of their statian domination , though most vital, was their machines. the Amazon kindle was the first ereader, but the amazon fire is the economy car tablet. Thus, amazon had the two devices most people in the usa will have to read ebooks. And the kindle doesn't accept epub and the fire doesn't allow every other app, like kobo's for example. The dominance Amazon has in the usa market is like facebooks. I know for certain other websites do better or equal to facebook or instagram in the esocial , but their audience is not based in the usa. Sequentially, people in the USA are hard to see the other firms. That last point connect to Kobo but I continue. ... Barnes and noble tried to mirror Amazon's strategy, thinking their book stores gave them a userbase that can wither amazon's in the reading world. But, barnes and noble was wrong. amazon's strategy depended on being first, the second your firm is not first, you can not duplicate amazon. Another bookstore called Borders had to do something. They were not a tech firm like amazon and didn't have the money like barnes and noble to invest in making a product. But, this canadian firm Kobo, had a product. Me side my blood relatives, love to read, and liked going to borders. Sequentially, when they sold the first Kobo's we were interested. The best thing about the original kobo was the purpose. This was not a multipurpose device, this was a straight forward read ebook device. I do not like to buy technology that overlaps purpose, so I was interested. Over time, borders went out of business as Kobo couldn't provide the uptake needed in the usa market. But, Kobo survived cause outside the usa, many liked the universal nature of kobo. Unlike barnes and noble or amazon, Kobo's objective is getting people to read. And, they developed a nice market share in europe especially, where the buying habits to technology are not like the usa. THis is why in Europe, the nintendo game systems market shares are much larger than sony playstation or microsoft xbox. PEople in europe do buy sony or microsoft, but many people in europe have an affordable quality mentality to buying technology. Nintendo fits that mold, Kobo as well, fitted that mold. But, to make more devices, Kobo needed investment and they couldn't get it on there own. So, here comes Rakuten, a japanese company, biggest publisher in japan. They owned Overdrive, which is a website that was started in the usa, but centers on ebook collections. Rakuten bought them too and combined was able to advance both companies projects. Overdrive like Kobo are not well known by the average usa ereader, but in certain sections in the usa and definitely outside of it, are more well known or more importantly used. Now, what does this have to do with being a member of Kobo writing life. You have to comprehend, being a member of Kobo in the usa, means few will ever know what you are talking about. My storytelling was meant to explain the international strength of Kobo is key. Kobo is not the biggest ebook firm in the usa, and will not be any time soon. Many, not necessarily most, of the biggest kobo writers also have amazon accounts. But, if you are expecting people in the usa, to have automatic recognition to kobo, you are wrong. Having said that, I considered joining amazon aside others writing programs. But I joined Kobo after trying to join amazon first, it was too complicated or messy. It seemed amazon wanted me to sign an affidavit on something and that bothered me. I conclude with the following. Do what you want, in terms of writing program. I am not a fan to amazon but in the end I am not one to tell others where to go or what to do. But Kobo is a stable or straightforward writing program, that gives you access to strong unfamiliar reading markets outside the usa,which are becoming more accustomed to the ebook at a faster growing rate, or overdrive. I can't give you a revenue sheet to guarantee financial success. But, I can tell you that Kobo's writing life , even part of Rakuten, maintains their original premise, which is an open format, for writers to dictate their prices and how their books are sold. Kobo is not going to beg anyone to come to them but the door is open, use at your own will. Now, I am off that silly pulpit.

BRIDGING GAPS & CONNECTING THE DOTS from Past to Present == The Tuareg people == (… also spelt Twareg or Touareg; endonym: Kel Tamasheq, Kel Tagelmust [4]) are a large Berber ethnic confederation. … The Tuaregs have been called the [“] blue people [”] for the indigo dye coloured clothes they traditionally wear and which stains their skin. [7][8] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuareg_people As such, the endonym strictly refers only to the Tuareg nobility, not the artisanal client castes and the slaves.

  27. AMAZIGH Names~ What They Call Themselves … According to Script Past & Present https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=909562 Tuareg chief Moussa Ag Amastan arriving in Paris, 1910 *Note: This Touareg Leader's name reflects a common word 'AG' included in many Berber/Tuareg names By H. Grobe - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=13278213 Tuareg in Mali, 1974 *My Note: Note the blue dye on the skin. Although modern scholars mostly place the Tuareg/Amazigh people in the continent of Africa, however, they deliberately BLACKOUT obvious history of many of the ancestors of these same people who also came from the East World too. In fact, one of their dominant symbolism that regards their clothes and especially their turbans of which they dye BLUE marks a historical presence in ancient India at the dawn of post-flood civilizations. India art works is flooded with this BLUE/BLACK THEME of early Black peoples of ancient India. And then thousands of years later, in Central Asia and the Far East, these Black or Brown skinned 'Afro-Asiatics were a dominant part of these countries and well scripted. During the AD 1300s through the AD 1500s, many of them migrated to the western world of North Africa and became a part of the Arab forces in Spain. However, modern scholars do not go back behind this date and times of the Arab Expansion period but only define them based on their partial history in Ancient Egypt. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So, here are some photos of modern-day peoples defined by ‘exonyms’ [Names that other people define them as being] and also ‘endonyms’ [Names that they call themselves] from the past and present. Now, I would like to preview this and say that because their history shows they were a people that formed confederacies and also many cultures reflect an intermixed people, therefore, the names used today do not necessarily define the people as a whole. Nevertheless, certain root words and names mark their history and connects to the very distant past. And, I would also like to preview this research and also say that when Black African people make the mistake and define ancient White peoples and civilizations by certain terminology without understanding how they descended from Black origins, then they (we) will not be able to discern the whole truth. More importantly, when African Americans dismiss the fact that all ancient script stems from Black civilizations and, forgo and do not search for the origins of words in how they were used and transitioned from past to present, the truth will become a confusion. Therefore, in order for a connection to be made in this research, I will use ancient script references from secular sources and also from Biblical sources. I have chosen to highlight the term “Amazigh” and also The ‘TUAREG’ peoples as it applies to our modern times and then make some connections to the past, because, due to our streamlined educational system and due to the corruption (Separation) of Church and State, therefore some of the ancient terms may seem odd. Again, the Amazigh peoples today reflect a very large history of confederacy and intermixed peoples, one that also includes the significant presence of the Original ancient Hebrew Israelites and Jews. And so, if the ancient names and origins of the Amazigh and certain other African-typed people cannot be understood, well then, the presence of the Biblical Israelites and other descendants of the Biblical Shem, Ham, JapHeth and Canaan, will also never be completely understood and will continue to be a total confusion for us today. Another crucial aspect of ancient script-form that absolutely continues to be a vital feature of some words today would be that deeper meanings are revealed in the reverse form of certain root words and also phrases. For ancient scribes and people that understood script, this script-reverse format was a common way to read and write. Unless specific words are not understood in their ‘reverse-format’ the Bible will never be understood because that becomes one major feature of the Biblical scriptures and this came to be one method, amongst others, in which the Bible was sealed-up until after the Crucifixion. So, today we are not made to recognize how many ancient script-forms and alphabets are connected and transitioned, but it has become a fascination for me. I can understand how the Sogdian script was taken to the east world and how it was transliterated, eventually, the script ‘characters’ were written from the top to the bottom and in vertical columns. I can see a similarity in the Hungarian script form and the Turkic script form. In some ancient scripts, words are reversed, in others the very letters are flipped and reversed, and in some scripts every other line has been reversed and etc. And, I can recognize how deceptive todays’ scholars define the ancient Black-Babylonian Cuneiform script form as being the Assyrian script. For thousands of years and even after script forms have been varied and transliterated to interpret one language script form to another, certain root words have retained their deeper meanings throughout times and, I have been studying this aspect of root words for over twenty years. So, for me, when I read some words, I simultaneously recognize their deeper meaning and I also recognize their reverse format, and this would be a little what I would like to share today. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Berber PEOPLE WRITTEN BY: Michael Brett Berber, self-name Amazigh, plural Imazighen, any of the descendants of the pre-Arab inhabitants of North Africa.

  28. BRIDGING THE GAP of Black ‘African’ History Past & Present Okay, so I am going to share some references about the dates and times when the Exodus was written to have occurred that may help to ‘Bridge the Gap’ between descriptive terms today and yesterday used to mark this historical account that may better help to understand the truth amongst a lot of confusion. Although the whole truth may not be understood immediately, however, hopefully by sharing secular references along with Biblical references about two subjects discussed in this thread and another thread, the Exodus and Amazigh, other truths may be obtained about ancient Black ‘African’ History and cultures. I look forward to debate and discussion, however, while there may be doubt at first in what I share briefly, please give me a chance to explain some topics in more depth, by and by, that may seem strange initially. My research shows me that there has been a deliberately movement at the beginning of the Colonial governments in Europe to misalign certain dates and times that regard ancient Egyptian history and this movement was extensive, but however, not impossible to recognize. So, maybe that would be one major reason, some people do not give much credit to the Biblical scripts about certain events that were written to have happened in Africa; ancient Egypt. So, I will briefly start off by dealing with this issue. Even though many scholars today say that the dates are off, however, they know that they will not be able to convince the lawmakers to address this issue for certain political reasons. So, in my opinion, it would be fruitless to believe that the western big governments will address this issue correctly, however, if the masses of lower class Americans do not make any attempt to understand truth, we will never have a significant voice to address issues that may help humanity. If, dates and times were indeed changed by Big Government in order to confuse the poor and oppress, then obviously it was done for some kind of gain. Therefore, the truth about the past in ancient Africa would be a benefit that could mean a better way to exist for everybody of all walks of life. Anyway, I will start out with a general preview and references about the historical account of the Exodus and Passover Week, and hope to later share more references to support my statements. Firstly, due to the movie that I grew up watching every spring during Eastertime about the Exodus that was produced by Cecille B. DeMille called The Ten Commandments and starring the late Charleston Heston and the late Yule Brenner, I was made to believe that these big time TV Idols would not lie, so this account must be true. What makes matters worse would be that the Black Christians accepted this film as being truth, so much so, that years later another major film production was made along these same timelines, so I’ve been told. Nevertheless, to abruptly start off with a general statement that will hopefully show this account could not possibly be truth as it had been written down in scripture and secular text. If anyone had chosen to have at least read the ancient documents, the films reflect a major contradiction. Charleston Heston was in conflict with the pharaoh Rameses II but based on all ancient accounts this could not possibly be. The ancient Egyptian records agree with modern archeology as well in that Rameses II could not possibly be the pharaoh subjected to a series of plagues, but however, the records today match the Egyptian records and well as other ancient civilizations about a time of great plagues. Therefore, it becomes obvious that Moses conflicted with the government of the 18th Dynasty pharaoh and rulers of the Thutmosis line!—Which was the very name given to ‘Moses-the-Hebrew’! So therefore, because the Israelites were written to be in Egypt for more than 400 years, then they would have been under ‘hard bondage’ under the 18th Dynasty Thutmosis system mostly. For this reason, it would be beneficial to study this historical time period in ancient Africa. Secular records show that these Thutmosis kings were absolutely not the Original Egyptians, but however, they were Aegyptos! Thutmosis I, married into the original line and adopted their name ‘MOSES’ [ie Mosis]. Furthermore, a closer look at the secular books and Egyptian scripts shows that, not only were these Thutmosis pharaohs well documented, they also had dominant names that reflect their connection to the Biblical Magog. The 18th Dynasty were MAGOGS. And, as the Biblical records also show, the adoptive mother of Moses later married into the Hebrew tribe of Judah and had four sons, and like her, the Hebrew Israelites did intermix with these Magogs in ancient times, as it was directed by the Creator. History shows at times, the Israelites violently conflicted with the many different kinds of Egyptians but at times they were at peace and they intermixed, but because of our modern day education and experiences, this idea may seem strange. The Bible records show how the Creator loathed the original Magog cultures for specific reasons, but at times, the Bible shows that the Creator honored the combined interrelations of Israel and the Magogs, but because we have been educated to NOT recognize these crucial aspects of how ancient and original Black ‘African-typed’ people interreacted over thousands and thousands of years, many of us have just simply rejected major historical aspects of African History. We were not all from the same origins and cultures. And, it would be crazy to ignore some of the core issues with the original Magog cultures because it was extremely debased. This information will surface sooner or later anyway, but hopefully soon enough to help humanity. The Creator used all of the Original ‘African’ peoples, cultures and civilizations [ie Original Sheth] and intertwined them at times, one with each other as a part of his masterplan to correct Black Hatred. If some cultures were too perverse, well, they had to be judged based on this score, and according to scripture, however, we have been misled to interpret this as 'God' killing off all Magogs. Some original people may have lost their government, specific culture, or individuals, but their origins and their genetic mark will never be erased. However, because of a deliberate movement of deception, we have been made to believe in many lies. We need to go back and relook at ancient scripts. Without understanding modern peoples that at one distant time were connected and defined by certain root names, without an adequate interpretation and transliteration of ancient descriptive terms into modern terms, and without understanding specific reasons behind some major Old-World conflicts, negative history will continue to repeat itself. So, ultimately, if the dates are times were aligned correctly, it will become evident that the very pharaoh that Moses conflicted with was a young puppet king --- yeah--- named KING TUTANKHAMEN [ie Tutankhaten]. During the 1920s and around that time archeologist seemed to be obssessed with digging up the ancient world and it was during these times that they confirmed what they already well knew in many ancient script forms. The Egyptian records and artworks are extremely detailed and todays' scholars know very well, that it was not RAmeses II, or Tutmosis III, the warrior pharoah, or anyother pharaoh but King Tut that aligns with the Biblical account of the Exodus. So not only do terms need to be translated properly, but the dates and times need to be re-aligned correctly as well. P.S. Oops. The time span give by scholars today would be the 1300s BC, but this is so, not true. One process in getting at the correct dates and times in correlation to our modern Calendar system would be, guess what!? The answer: the Star of Bethlehem, that marked a major epoch. Also, going back before the Exodus, it would be a very catastrophic event that helps to synchronize time and show the correct dates for the historical times of the 18th Dynasty, and other major events such as the later events that surround Rameses II and the Fall of Troy VII and etc. This event occurred in the 1600s BC and it was the MASSIVE EXPLOSION ON THE ISLE OF CRETE. this event has also been somewhat misaligned but many scholars do reveal this more so. This explosion sparked the ending and beginning of several civilizations at that time and marks the very beginning of the 18th Dynasty.
