Hosted by criminal defense lawyer Elizabeth Kelley, AuthorChats features in-depth conversations with writers about their recent works. In this episode, she talks with James D. Zirin, partner at Sidley Austin LLP, about his book "The Mother Court: Tales of Cases that Mattered in America's Greatest Trial Court." In the Foreward to the book, legendary Manhattan District Attorney Robert M. Morgenthau writes: "Jim Zirin is a talented trial lawyer, an able writer, and a keen observer. It is not surprising, therefore, that he has crafted an extraordinary behind-the-scenes story, describing many of the people, cases, and events of the Mother Court. The reader will have a ringside seat at some of the major trials that unfolded in the Southern District in mid- 20th century America. In a well-researched and highly readable chronicle, laced with some memorable and often hilarious anecdotes, he has captured the essence of what went on in Southern District courtrooms. He has made a valuable contribution to the history of the court that will be of interest to all citizens, not just judges, lawyers, and law students, but not excluding them either." http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com
BIAFRANS WHO ARE THEY? Is the theme for today discussion on 16/06/2014
Today we have two side of the same story about the origin of Biafra people.
There was a Biafra before 1967which lost its sovereignty to colonial powers. “ Early modern maps of Africa from the 15th-19th centuries, drawn by European cartographers from accounts written by explorers and travellers, reveal that the original word used by the European travellers was not Biafra but Biafara, Biafar and sometimes also Biafares.”
Biafara people are already known and addressed as Biafara people before they came in contact with the first European merchants. The word Biafra has its generics from “Ephraim” as pointed out by Martin Simon Ukegbe
Map of Ancient Africa with Biafra
The name Biafra like the name Africa can be traced back to the Moorish Tribe of Bani Ifran, a name meaning the Children of Ephraim. In this setting Ephraim refers to their descent from the Israelite tribe of Ephraim being the House of Joseph.
The Bani Ifran or Biafrans were also known as the Bafar tribes and it is they who established the Black Moorish Kingdoms of Ghana,Mali and Songhai. From Mali many of the Biafrans migrated to the areas of present day Nigeria where they became the leaders of the Igbo Nation.

Additionally, satisfying marriages are beneficial to couples and children of these marriages.
