CDC Emergency Partners Update
 2014 Ebola Response - October 16, 2014

Peace Family (far & near),

I recently made decisions not travel by air due to this health crisis.  I am also a member of the US Dep't of Health & Human Service/Healthy People 2020 Consortium and often get some information from gov't agencies. Here's one of the latest on the Ebola crisis. Please carefully review it and if you find it important, do share it with colleagues, family and friends. We need greater awareness on this latest crisis and some of us can do some scientific research on behalf of our community. We don't need any more "canaries in the coal mine".

Brother G will be on hand with his new book below but you can order online by link below.  Below is a customer review of Princess Nefertari:

Customer Review by Angela Harden - 9/4/14


"Princess Nefertari is an amazing book that has changed my life. I relate to her use of white lotus root as a form of escapism from her dead sister's voice in her head. All people who have used drugs and alcohol to escape their problems should relate to that. The way you allowed her to channel her negative experiences into positive outcomes was amazing. In Hollywood, most females who made the bad choices Nefertari made would have been thrown away and considered unfit for a Prince. And wombfire- how creative! Can't wait for Saga Book 2."


Brother G's new book "Princess Nefertari:  Protectress of the Nile" is now available as an E-Book and hard copy on Amazon.com.

The Jordan Journal Radio Show
Host: Howard Jordan, Esq. 
Anthony Miranda- organizing member of the Campaign for Fair Latino Representation discusses Latino underrepresentation in the Mayor de Blasio administration. 

Arnoldo Torres former National Director of LULAC,  journalist, consultant, partner in a Sacramento, California firm Torres & Torres.


Jose Lopez, younger brother of the Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar Lopez Rivera imprisoned by the U.S. government for over 33 years.


                                   

The Jordan Journal is a current events-driven program that is committed to a cross-fertilization of ideas between people of color and the progressive community in the United States. The host, Howard Jordan. describes himself as: "As a self-defined internationalist and First Amendment absolutist, no issue is off the table and I endeavor to give all sides of a given controversy an airing. As such, this is not a Latino interest program, but rather, a general interest program hosted by a Latino activist."

BENEFITS OF BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES

 
Six Black Super Foods

Black Rice

Brown rice is good for you, but black rice is even better. That's because the bran hull contains significantly higher amounts of vitamin E, which bolsters the immune system and protects cells from free radical damage. In fact, black rice contains more anthocyanin antioxidants than blueberries, according to a study from the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center.

Black Lentils

These legumes are loaded with iron: One cup has about 8 milligrams, getting you almost halfway to the daily requirement of 18 milligrams for women. Lentils also boast high levels of soluble fiber, which may not only lower your cholesterol, but could also improve immune function, according to a new University of Illinois study.

Black Berries

Polyphenols found in dark berries may help reduce cognitive decline in older age by cleaning up cells that impair brain function, researchers at the Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging in Boston say. Blackberries are also hugely fiber-rich.  One cup has almost 8 of the 25 grams you need daily.

Black beans

The dark skins of these beans are packed with bioflavonoids-potent plant-based nutrients that may protect against cancer, research out of Cornell University reveals.

Black Soybeans

Move over, edamame. A Korean study found that eating black soybeans can help reduce the risk of thrombosis-a type of blood clot that's potentially fatal-even more than yellow or green soybeans. And all soybean oil contains alpha-linolenic acid, a type of omega-3 fatty acid that may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Black Tea

Green and white teas get all the health hype, but good old black tea has its perks, too. It contains theaflavins-antioxidants that a study from Rutgers University in New Jersey suggests may improve recovery from muscle soreness after intense exercise. Drinking black tea may also lower your risk of having a heart attack.

Reporting Back - United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland
Mama Asantewaa Harris

 

I attended the UN Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland on 11/10 - 11/15. Just returned today! Michael Brown's grieving parents, Dhoruba Bin Wahad/Political Prisoners, young Chicago's warriors "We Charge Genocide" (see below), three of us from Black Women's Blueprint http://www.blackwomensblueprint.org/2014/11/09/invisible-betrayal-police-violence-and-the-rapes-of-black-women-in-the-united-states, ACLU and lawyers advocating for Gitmo detainees and others were there to engage the UN in petitioning our government on its failures to comply with some of the UN Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment principles. The US has signed this treaty - yet police brutality, rapes and killings, extreme punishments in prisons-solitary confinement, no medical care, forced feedings & torturous acts, rapes in the military, children & women groomed molested and raped by priests & other egregious acts of torture continue... 

 

For thirty five minutes, We Charge Genocide silently stood in defiance of the hypocrisy of the US responses to the UN Committees questions and in solidarity Sam & Samantha stood, Monica, Nikki of BWB & a lawyer from Chicago stood, the Ferguson delegation raised their fists. 

 

It was such a powerful action!

Story of Saartjie Baartman
Story of Saartjie Baartman


Saartjie "Sarah" Baartman (before 1790 -- 29 December 1815)[1] (also spelled Bartman, Bartmann, Baartmen) was the most famous of at least two[2] Khoikhoi women who were exhibited as freak show attractions in 19th-century Europe under the name Hottentot Venus-"Hottentot" as the then-current name for the Khoi people, now considered an offensive term,[3] and "Venus" in reference to the Roman goddess of love. The Hottentot Venus may be famous but Sarah Baartman is far less so.


This video is to honor her story, struggle and life that we will never forget. We need not to make history repeat itself. This daughter of South Africa wouldnt want that.
