    After reading the article defend integrated peaceful multiversity/multiculturalism as more successful in any government than monoverse or monocultural domination over other cultures? The article make a great point. Many people in the usa speak the idea that peaceful integrated multicultures is positive, advantageous... but provide examples. Let us be honest, Every government in the American continent <usa/mexico/haiti/brazil> all started based on one culture or community. Whites in the usa/blancos in brasil/negroes in haiti/mestizoes in mexico. In history, the romans, british empire, japanese empire all were monocultural in creation or expansion. Countries like China or Kemet <egypt> in composition utilized multiculturalism but it was through war, whether Narmer or the Mad Matyr. The Mongols were started or expanded monoculturally, but after Temujin died, the pieces to the empire reflected the culture each had in it which each mongol leader accepted. https://www.creators.com/read/pat-buchanan/09/18/the-unpardonable-heresy-of-tucker-carlson

    In ode to Aretha Franklin I wanted to focus on her song writing. Listed below is the songs she wrote or her a member from her sanguine wrote on her various albums excluding the mention of the first album. I think it is telling she started having a gospel album and in the end has an album that is entitled a brand new me. Taking a look at the covers to all her albums, like ella fitzgerald or sarah vaughan , or many other black songstresses whom white owned media did not and do not present youthfully. No shame exist in displaying one who has lived long beyond the common, but I find it too common in media to not show black female artists when young. Which song is your favorite from the Written/Sung by Aretha Franklin? There Is a Fountain Filled with Blood" (William Cowper) was the first song on her solo album Songs of Faith "Without the One You Love" (Aretha Franklin) 2:48 The Tender, the Moving, the Swinging Aretha Franklin 1962 "I Wonder (Where Are You Tonight)" (Aretha Franklin, Ted White) 3:16 Laughing on the Outside 1963 "Without The One You Love" (Aretha Franklin) (3:34) Yeah!!! 1965 "Take It Like You Give It" (Aretha Franklin) – 1:50 "Land of Dreams" (Aretha Franklin) – 2:12 Take It Like You Give It 1967 "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" Aretha Franklin, Ted White "Baby Baby Baby" Aretha Franklin, Carolyn Franklin "Dr. Feelgood" Aretha Franklin, Ted White "Save Me" Aretha Franklin, Carolyn Franklin, King Curtis I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You 1967 "I'll Keep On Smiling" (Aretha Franklin) "Take a Look" (Aretha Franklin) Take a Look 1967 "(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone" (Aretha Franklin, Ted White) 2:25 "Good to Me As I Am to You" (Aretha Franklin, Ted White) 3:56 Lady Soul 1968 "Think" Aretha Franklin, Ted White Aretha Now 1968 "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" (Franklin, Teddy White) "Dr. Feelgood (Love Is a Serious Business)" (Franklin, Teddy White) "(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone" (Franklin, Teddy White) Aretha in Paris 1968 Note: first live album "Dr. Feelgood" (Franklin, Ted White) - 3:18 "(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone" (Franklin, White) - 2:18 "Think" (Franklin, White) - 2:15 "Ain't No Way" (Carolyn Franklin, White) - 4:12 I added her sisters song Aretha's Gold 1969 greatest hits album "Call Me" (Aretha Franklin) - 3:57 This Girl's In Love With You 1970 "Pullin'" Carolyn Franklin, Jimmy Radcliffe <her sister> "You and Me" Aretha Franklin "Spirit in the Dark" Aretha Franklin "One Way Ticket" Aretha Franklin 2:52 "Try Matty's" Aretha Franklin 2:32 Spirit in the Dark 1970 "Dr. Feelgood" Aretha Franklin 7:06 "Spirit in the Dark" Aretha Franklin 5:33 "Spirit in the Dark" (Reprise with Ray Charles) Aretha Franklin 8:53 Aretha Live at Fillmore West 1971 "Dr. Feelgood" (Aretha Franklin, Ted White) - 3:18 "Call Me" (Aretha Franklin) - 3:18 Aretha's Greatest Hits 1971 "Day Dreaming" Aretha Franklin 4:00 "Rock Steady" Franklin 3:15 "All the King's Horses" Franklin 3:56 "First Snow in Kokomo" Franklin 4:04 Young, Gifted and Black 1972 "Hey Now Hey (The Other Side of the Sky)" (Aretha Franklin) "So Swell When You're Well" (James Booker, Aretha Franklin) "Angel" (Carolyn Franklin, Sonny Sanders) her sister "Sister from Texas" (Aretha Franklin) "Just Right Tonight" (Aretha Franklin, Avery Parrish, Buddy Feyne, Quincy Jones, Robert Bruce) "Master of Eyes (The Deepness of Your Eyes)" (Aretha Franklin, Bernice Hart) Hey Now Hey (The Other Side of the Sky) 1973 "Rock Steady" - 4:19 contains an alternate introduction exclusive to this compilation "Dr. Feelgood" - 3:18 "Day Dreaming" - 3:49 "Call Me" - 3:24 The Best of Aretha Franklin 1973 quadraphonic sound "Oh Baby" (Aretha Franklin) "If You Don't Think" (Aretha Franklin) Let Me in Your Life 1974 "Without Love" (Carolyn Franklin, Ivy Jo Hunter) her sister "With Everything I Feel in Me" (Aretha Franklin) "Sing It Again - Say It Again" (Carolyn Franklin) her sister With Everything I Feel in Me 1974 "Mr. D.J.

I was unable to find out the writers to these songs Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love 2011 "Think" Aretha FranklinWhite "Angel" Carolyn FranklinSonny Saunders A Brand New Me 2017 It ends with Respect from Otis Redding, not accidental to me, she really liked Redding, Cooke and those Southern Balladeers. Also consider the Dinah Washington Album, I heard it, it is a true ode. Her Sparkle film soundtrack album is underrated for the timing of it side quality having all song written from curtis mayfield. Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics 2014 is another gem, showing how much she listened to other singers honestly.

    “Toni Morrison and Adaptation” A Special Issue of College Literature – Call for Proposals Edited by Stacie McCormick and Rhaisa Williams A Word from “College Literature: A Journal of Critical Literary Studies” : The year 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Toni Morrison’s inaugural novel, The Bluest Eye, a work that engages in innovative methods of adaptation by transforming the Dick and Jane primer into a powerful narrative charting the move from innocence to experience as inflected by blackness. In 2006, the novel was adapted into a stage play written by Lydia Diamond. Indeed, Morrison’s work both engages in the act of adaptation (modifying folktales, images, and song into narrative) and continues to be adapted in other formats (notable instances are Beloved, Jazz, and The Bluest Eye). The 50th anniversary of The Bluest Eye serves as an apt occasion to reflect on the transformational and intertextual character of Morrison’s work. For this special issue, we invite essays that analyze Morrison’s artistic and intellectual imprint on the stage, screen, and through lyric. We seek essays that theorize Morrison’s work in relation, but not limited to: Theories of adaptation Black artistic and cultural formalism Black feminist artistic practices Critical engagement with Morrison’s stage plays and/or operas (Margaret Garner; Desdemona; Dreaming Emmett; New Orleans, A Musical) Children’s Literature (The Tortoise or the Hare, co-authored with Slade Morrison) Film and stage adaptations of Morrison’s novels (Jazz, The Bluest Eye, Beloved) Music – How hip-hop, classical, jazz artists adapted Morrison’s work; How Morrison produced work in different formats such as “song cycles” or operettas Visual Art Recuperation of history and culture Forms of intimacy Regional theater communities Embodiment Multiple temporalities Commemoration Deadline for submissions is September 1, 2018. Please click here for more information on the publication and submission guidelines. http://centerforblackliterature.org/submit-toni-morrison-and-adaptation-a-special-issue-of-college-literature/

    @Mel Hopkins not you think , you know or,at least, you are 100% correct . And, yes, I am not suggesting,100%, that making money must have criminality but I am telling that 99.9% does, not in alway straight but it does. Excellent example: Robert Johnson sold something worth more than any price long term and sold it for fiscal profit, and was glorified from like minded folk, black or non- black, after doing it. Many hip hop artists did likewise, betraying their youth or their home life for the imagined gangster rapper imagery, that white owned corporations preferred over social critiques or artistic mobilizers. The problem is simple, define morals. Morals are not set in stone. Second, more importantly, function. Said black folk are looking to reject or deny function to remain in some ruleset, morals, while making money. At the least, that does not serve the function of making money to the best ability or serving a communities needs.
  10. The art of lying:) from #Omarosa enjoy what is the lesson concerning the fury from black folk that lick white people's balls or the lies we tell, for she is trying to bring down the, i quote her, the most powerful man in the universe, and she has the audiotapes to try  https://photos.app.goo.gl/G9RxaEaqCzGNepML9

      I was one of those "why" children who grew up to be a news reporter and I can usually tell when someone has rehearsed a "response". Omarosa rehearsed that one for awhile 😮

      Of course she rehearsed it , very little, and I dare say nothing is unrehearsed in media in the usa. A rehearsed lie and yet, I think the cultural damage from such things are underrated.

    Thoughts to AMP, do you use email? The three articles below discuss the basic structure or some other development points to the larger project. But, as a yahoo email user for a long time, I recall many including myself asking yahoo to focus on email in years past and they did not. When I look at instagram if this email push can grow, it will reinvigorate email cause email offers a privacy wall that the public bases simpyl do not. but the public bases allow for interactivity that email did and in modernity, usually do not.

    true @Troy Just today @Mel Hopkins the mayor to new york city, blamed trumps election or racial biases publicity in the usa on rupert murdoch or fox news. He blames someone whose role is to make money through the media for placating how white people raise themselves in their community. It is not murdoch's fault that he saw a mob and played to it, to make money, in the usa, where making money is the way to anything. Again, merit does not matter. De blasio today suggest a certain philosophical merit must come before fiscal profiteering when the fiscal profiteering is the philosophical merit. One note, when chernobyl happened the soviet russian government had soldiers pick up the waste, all those soldiers died of radiation sickness. Over 10,000 have died from the world trade center wreckage, but if we all recall, mayor guiliani let those people ,fiscally poor people or municipal workers,pick up waste just like the soviet government did the military at chernobyl... ah welll

    @Mel Hopkins Everyone,I repeat everyone, in the usa is in a mental conditioning program to suggest merit not making money is the key. My pleasure, but we all suffer from that. As someone who prefers efficient municipal structure, I do not know how many time I spoke truth to inefficiency in the usa /nys/nyc municipal structures when in truth i wasted and still waste my breath; cause said systems are not meant to be efficient but tools for those who have the most money to control. The true answer is always in the usa, very simple. Make money and do what you want. Crude, inefficient, non sustainable but that is the way in the usa. When DT first went bankrupt who saved him. new jersey and the banks led by goldman sachs who held his real estate transactions as well as alot of atlantic city property. If DT went bankrupt the first time, like many fiscally common folk <red/black/white/or other or any> Atlantic city would had plummeted in value and caused a severe depreciation in the banks. Whom we all learned later had too many DT -esque deals they were holding which is why the federal elected official class did to the banks what the banks side the elected officials class from the state of new jersey did to trump, made the later too big too fail. Sequentially, Donald trump did not strictly go bankrupt the first time and the last two were mere repetitions to the first. DT calls it the art of the deal when it is simply modern global fiscal capitalism. People who have money are deeply connected and will protect each other's finances to protect each other's finances. I don't know what they gave obama/clinton/emmanuel/et cetera for that blank check but they all paid when trump was elected as president. the party of lincoln party elders lost leadership to a man who has allegiance to nothing but his personal benefit. the party of andrew jackson was exposed as internally deeply dysfunctional. Returning, DT's fiscal condition is about protectionism from the fiscally wealthy and people do not admit it, though it was said enough to be common knowledge. We all know the truth behind DT yet we do not say it. We all know the truth behind the too big too fail but we do not admit it. Obama himself talked about the system falling down. that is a lie and we all knew. the banks falling down side all but one from the major usa car companies falling down would not had caused chaos. but it would had deleted many fiscally wealthy people's finances. And, those people used their money or power from money to maintain their fiscal wealth. Does it mean the banks or car companies are educated? how educated are the people in the banks in the center to the global empire when they have every advantage to make profit while be stable and failed? how educated are the people in the car companies when they are in the center of the global empire and yet fail to make a cost efficient technically superior automobile? How many people in the banks or car companies merited their job or were given their job? Many people allude to merit to everything else but having money and being cutthroat or coercive to keep it, no matter what.

    Part to the end of this article is what I would had written otherwise, you wrote: "The reason, however, is this; Apple is run by people whose goal is to make money by any means. So, if you find you're in a place far different than you'd envisioned for yourself. Stop doing what you've always done. Lose the fear and do whatever it takes to allow you to live your dreams." I would had rewrote the last line:"Lose the fear and do whatever it takes to allow you to live your dreams." as "Lose the fear and make money whatever it takes to allow you to live your dreams." I know just one simple part. But, when you talked about apple's fiscal profiteering, your point is true. The USA or the european colonies that preceded it,financially, is a place for money makers. From those early whites, to the white murderers to red folk or enslavers to black, to later yellow or black folk in the fiscal illegal world, money making is the way it happens in the u.s.a.. Labels and rank don't have a value that you may find in parts to europe/africa/asia. I think sometimes people in the usa, do not speak bluntly enough to that. That is how donald trump went bankrupt three times but and came back financially from each.

    Questions to think about The following Kobo article made me think, about my emailing list and the kind of various people in it. Three question I never explicitly asked, i should had asked before: how many books do you read per month, what is the average price of books you read per month, and how many from my work have you read? So, I ask all of you to do likewise to your readers. I imagine the answers may surprise. https://kobowritinglife.com/2017/11/28/multi-layered-readers-and-how-to-reach-them/ The following kobo article made me wonder a nice question: I add it to the prementioned: how many years in your life did at least one book you read inspire you? https://kobowritinglife.com/2017/11/30/4-ways-good-stories-move-us/ I have never read an author biography, I always go straight to page one when i consider a book. Another question: how many books did you buy in your life, best memory, based on the author biography? I know many people bought books after seeing a movie or after many other folk bought a book. I bet none of those folk read the biography? https://kobowritinglife.com/2018/02/23/what-makes-a-good-author-bio/ What is a favorite line to a book you read? I am not too proud to ask: what is a favorite line to something I wrote, poetry or prose? I used : in that pleasant district of merry england which is watered by the river Don, there extended in ancient times a large forest, covering the greater part of the beautiful hills and vallies which lie between Sheffield and the pleasant town of Doncaster <Ivanhoe> , in the land of ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three <howls moving castle> https://kobowritinglife.com/2018/06/14/ten-great-first-lines/ I have been told by some I need to revise sunset children stories OR the gospel of Joseph. what books do you think need to be revised that you love? what books from me do you think I need to revise? Doesn't everything demand revision eventually? https://kobowritinglife.com/2018/06/18/how-to-revise-your-novel/

If you’re working with metal you’ll want a few heavy machinist hammers, and at least 1 Ball Peen or Flat Peen hammer. This will make life immeasurably easier when working with the anvil and leg vise. In addition to this, if you’re going to be doing any “forge welding” (a process described later) you’ll need a large, heavy, long-handled sledge hammer. A Hardy Log: Or a ‘tool log’, anyways. A log with some metal hooks attached to it that you can hang your hammers off of is a mainstay of any competent blacksmiths shop. You could go out and get yourself a fancy metal tool-rack, but it’s probably cheaper just to go into the woods and find an old chunk of wood. Logs are usually my first choice when it comes to equipment racks due to their surprising resistance to the heat of the forge.Bach Ritterburg Tool Pliers BlacksmithAnvil: Anvils can be surprisingly inexpensive on places like craigslist or just general antiques shops. Worse comes to worst, you can ask any friends you’ve got that live on farms: most old estates used to have personal farriers, and so there’s probably a decent chance you’ll find a farriers anvil. Though there are many types of anvils out there, I’ve found that farrier’s anvils are set up the best way for bending metal. Rather than just giving you a flat surface, they give you a jutting horn with which you can bend your metal, and overall provide an easier platform for turning iron and steel into malleable putty. They also have strategically placed holes in them for the purposes of adding tools and attachments to your anvil should you choose. A Partner: Blacksmithing in teams of two is almost as old as the trade itself. Usually the teams of two would include one apprentice working the bellows, and one master smith actually heating and manipulating the metal. As forge welding became more popular, teams of two grew in popularity also, as a result of the fact that you need an incredibly heavy sledge hammer to slam down on the heated metal, while somebody holds the two pieces of metal together in the right position. Even if you’re not working with forge welding, having a partner is important for safety reasons, and just because it’s always fun to have someone to talk with while you’re hammering away. Quenching Bucket: This one is relatively self-explanatory. You don’t need an oil quench bucket or heat sink if you’re not forging high-grade steel, so if you’re just starting out, a simple wooden or metal bucket filled with water will work perfectly for quickly cooling down your crafts and forgings. The point here isn’t necessarily that you cool it particularly quickly or in any specific way, but rather that you get the danger of super-heated metal out of the way when you’re done with whatever you’re doing. Quickly hardening some small parts can also be important for making complex bends and hooks. Important Extra Bits and Pieces Undeserving of their own Category: • Anhydrous Borax: This is necessary for forge-welding • Large Rasp/File: This is for filing down burs. Even if you don’t need it initially, you’ll need it as you progress. • Forge tools: These are for moving and manipulating the coal. They can be little more than a long handled rake to move around the coal or a long piece of metal that you can use to shovel the coal into the firepot. • Clinker Breaker: These are incredibly important and often unused in forges. Clinker Breakers are used to break up the little deposits of metal that will colelct in the bottom of your forge. They can be purchased online, and are essential to keeping your tuyere and firepot clean. • Safety Equipment: For the love of goodness, please get yourself a decent blacksmithing apron. This will keep motel metal, sparks, and burning coals off your body, and trust me, you don’t want any of those things hitting anywhere vital!

    yes @Mel Hopkins I have nothing against Justine or fiyah magazine but. a black writer, suggesting that a white writer is not warranting the fandom or the support cause the content in work from said white writer or perception to the value in said work is negative, is no other than what white media do to black artists all the time. I don't want white people to change. I want black people to be free from white physical assault. White people writing books or making movies or producing paintings where they depict their interpretation to black people as negative or positive is not a physical assault, it is emotional, pride based, but not physical. Some in the black community seem to want whites to speak well to blacks and I oppose that position. Donald Trump speaking ill to the central park five was negative, was ill, but the central park five suffered cause the assailed white woman who lied and the NYPD who interrogated, Trump is not the one who led to the pain the central park five went through. Birth of a nation, the original, is a vile movie to Black people, but that film was not hanging black people or incarcerating black people falsely, or financially entrapping black people through tricks, all supported through government initatives or actors, in 1915. That was city councils, mayors of cities, state legislators, state governors, federal representatives, federal senators, the president, white owned private enterprise. are the cause. The napir of american race relations, what I call the burning of southern black folk, was the fault of the us federal military leaving the south, which oddly enough they would had to return 100 year later, not the confederate flag, or statues or books written from whites.
