    AKANFO NANASOM: AKRADINBOSOM Pt. 11: Afi (Het Heru) - Creativity, Sensuality

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we continue our series on the AKRADINBOSOM - the Abosom (Deities) who govern the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the 7-day Akan week and also the Okra/Okraa (Soul) of the Akan individual.


    We examine the Female Obosom of Fida (friday) and the okyin nsoromma/planet Afi ('venus'): Afi (Afua) is called Het Heru in Khanit and Kamit, Oshun in Yoruba and Azili in Vodoun. She governs the sensual attraction which is the precursor to procreative activity and the replenishment of its harmony. She governs the Divine Reproductive System, and thus marriage, creativity, innovation, art, music, dance, song and more.


    We examine our publications:

    Dwight Howard's elbow vs. Andrew Bogut's face: What will happen?

    in Basketball

    Rod Thorn, the NBA's dean of discipline, has a tough decision to make. Should Dwight Howard's elbowing foul against Andrew Bogut from Game 4 of the Western Conference finals be upgraded to a flagrant-2, which would force Howard to miss Game 5.


    The precedent is there, whether it was Al Horford getting ejected from Game 3 of the Atlanta-Cleveland series or J.R. Smith getting suspended two games for elbowing Jae Crowder of Boston during the first round. 


    Elbows to the head are a serious matter .... but so, too, is keeping the NBA playoffs interesting ... and keeping them on the air for as many days as possible before everything shuts down for a week prior to the start of the NBA Finals. All in all, this year's playoffs have not been great.


    Let's face it ... the Rockets probably have no shot whatsoever in Game 5 if Howard is suspended.


    And let's face this, too: The NBA has a vested interest in having a competitive Game 5 in Oakland, whether or not the Rockets can extend it to a Game 6.


    So what do I expect Thorn to do? And how will that news be, ahem, announced?


    The answers come in this podcast with Newy Scruggs on NBCSports Radio early Tuesday morning.

    AKANFO NANASOM: Akan Abosom of the 7 Day Week and the 7 Karkaru (Chakras)

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we examine the seven karkaru (chakras) and their relationship to the Abosom (Deities) of the Akan 7-day week and also the seven spiritual senses. The Abosom Who animate the solar. lunar and planetery bodies which govern the Akan seven-day week are the same Abosom from ancient Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) that we continue to invoke and worship today: Awusi, Adwoa, Bena, Abenaa, Awuku, Akua, Yaw, Yaa, Aaba, Afi and Amen Men (Ausar, Auset, Heru Behdety, Sekhmet, Set, Nebt Het, Heru, Wadjet, Nekhebet, Het Heru and Amen Men). All Akan people are named after one of these Abosom.


    The term 'chakra' is a corruption of the term 'karkar' from ancient Kamit. This term predates sanskrit by thousands of years. We examine the karkaru as shrines of Abosom (Deities/Orisa/Vodou) within the spirit-bodies of Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People).


    We examine our book and publication:


    ANKH - The Origin of the term 'Yoga' - KARA KASA - The Origin and Nature of the 'Chakra'

    Author and Film Director William Dickerson

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview William Dickerson.


    William Dickerson is a writer and director whose debut feature film, "Detour," was hailed as an “underground hit” by The Village Voice, an “emotional and psychological roller-coaster ride” by The Examiner, and nothing short of “authentic” by The New York Times. He self-released his metafictional satire, "The Mirror," which opened YoFi Fest’s inaugural film festival in 2013 and he alsoe recently completed his third feature film, "Don’t Look Back," for MarVista Entertainment. His award-winning work has been recognized by film festivals across the country. His first book, "No Alternative," was declared, “a sympathetic coming-of-age story deeply embedded in ‘90s music” by Kirkus Reviews. He currently serves on AFI’s Alumni Executive Board and is a Faculty Member at the New York Film Academy.

    Based on his challenges while making his debut “microbudget” film, Detour, Dickerson walks the reader through every aspect of making a film in Hollywood. From style direction to financial obstacles, it’s a detailed guide of the experiences of up and coming filmmakers in Los Angeles. 

    Kirkus Reviews said Detour: Hollywood is “A breezy guide that takes readers inside the sometimes-hair-raising world of do-it-yourself filmmaking, capturing its many frustrations and challenges.”

    GAME CHANGERS ft. TONI SCRUGGS!

    in Music

    When you think of a Vocalise, you think of one who is skilled above and beyond the average singer.  Everything from their tone, to pitch, to diction, to range far exceeds the normal capabilities of a person who uses their voice as their main instrument.


    From the simple cafe on the corner to the massive, sold-out arenas and stadiums, Toni "Tj" Scruggs has been the most sought out Vocalise of our day.  With a 6+ octave range, a jazz scat that is Ella worthy, and a richness to her tone reminscent of days gone by when a singer actually sang, Tj has stood in, with, behind and for notables such as Chaka Khan, Raheem DeVaughn, Whitney Houston.  She has been in the hallowed trios found on the Grammys, Bet Honors, and American Idol.  She has had her face on the small screen in The Parenthood, and the Jumbotron supporting Mary J Blige. Her impromptu solo's have been some of the most watched on Youtube of all supporting vocalists, most notably her rendition of "Summertime" in the set with Lalah Hathaway in which you hear every high and low of her beautiful instrument in all of it's Glory. And most recently, you have been blessed by her soaring vocals on this season of "Dancing With The Stars"


    Join me as I sit and talk with Tj about the industry for the support vocalist.  In the wake of "20 Feet from Stardom", the Oscar winning, highly acclaimed docudrama featuring the true pioneers of this craft, we will talk about how it is in the industry now versus then, what to expect when you are on the road, her future career  as a solo artist, writing ventures and more!


    Call in!  She is also one of the most noteworthy vocal technicians in the game and we will have the lines open for questions!

    AKANFO NANASOM: AKRADINBOSOM Pt. 12 - Amen Men: Central Nervous System; Protocol

    in Education

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM - Ancient Authentic Akan Ancestral Religion, we conclude our series on the AKRADINBOSOM - the Abosom (Deities) who govern the solar, lunar and planetary bodies which govern the 7-day Akan week and also the Okra/Okraa (Soul) of the Akan individual.


    We examine the Male Obosom of Menmeneda (saturday) and the okyin nsoromma/planet Amene ('saturn'): Amen Men. He is called Amen Men in Akan and also Amen Men (Amun Min) in Khanit and Kamit, Orisha Oko in Yoruba and Azaka in Vodoun. Amen Men is an Obosom of Creation/generation. He governs the Divine Axis/Central Nervous System, a regulatory structure within Abode (ah-baw-deh‘/Creation) – the Divine Body of NyamewaaNyame (The Supreme Being) and thus the axis/central nervous system (brain and spinal column) within the Afurakani/Afuraitkaitnit (African~Black) body. Amen Men is a repository of Ancestral Tradition and Protocol.


    We also discuss Menmenit, the form that Afi (Het Heru) takes as the Female Obosom of Menmeneda (saturday) and the wife of Amen Men.


     


    We examine our publications: 


    Amen Men - Obosom of Amen Men and Menmeneda ('saturn' and 'saturday')
