There is a great deal of misinformation regarding the origin of the terms 'yoga' and 'chakra'. These terms and their functional definitions do not have their roots in sanskrit or and proto-indo-european language. They can be found in the language of ancient Kamit (Egypt) and have been used by Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) for thousands of years - prior to the existence of the whites and their offspring on Asaase Afua (Earth Mother). We examine our publications:
**Update: On 9/20/14 we released the publications examined in the broadcast in the form of a book. This book is available in soft-cover and e-book format from our website:
ANKH - The Origin of the term 'Yoga' - KARA-KASA - The Origin and Nature of the 'Chakra'
Included in our discussion is the nature and function of ritual practice and how it has been corrupted by the hindus and east asians through pseudo-philosophy.

Join host Christine Agro as she chats with Chef Sebastian Oveysi from Amoo's Grill, A Persian Fusion.
Chef Seb is a Persian-American Chef who is passionate about showing the world that Persian cuisine is not just about kabobs and rice, but rather rich flavors, textures, creativity and innovation.
In his culinary creations, Chef Seb demonstrates the complexity of Persian cuisine inspired from different regions of Iran: the spices of the Kurdish mountains, the tropical flavors of the Caspian Sea, and the rich aroma of the desert plains- a cuisine that has come out of the melting pot of the Indo Europeans, the Turks, the Kurds, the Afghans, the Jews, the Armenian Christians, the Mediterranean people and perhaps the Eastern Africans. These dishes are comforting and flavorful!
On today’s Nature Inspired, Chef Seb and I we'll be talking about using flowers in your recipes. From garnishes to main courses, edible flowers are a versatile ingredient that lend color, texture and an element of surprise to any meal.
Tonight we are talking about the decline in marriage in the Black community. During the last half century African Americans and Black Carribeans have become the most unmarried people in the US. Black women are more than twice as likely as their white counterparts not to have married. Black men who are high earners are even less likely to have married than black men who earn substantially less. According to Ralph Richard Banks in the book ' Is Marriage for White People?', there are so many available to single black women on the market compared to the number of black men, this makes professional black men even less likely to marry. These men tend to use this inbalance to initiate relationships that tend to not be committed or exclusive, include sex but not marriage.
Why are whites marrying more than black people across the world? Are there any options for black women or men who still want to marry?
Let's talk about it

The History of Christianity #11
Our Scripture verse today is 2 Corinthians 5:21 which reads: "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."
Our quote today is from Clement of Rome. He said, "Let us look steadfastly to the blood of Christ, and see how precious that blood is to God, which, having been shed for our salvation, has set the grace of repentance before the whole world."
Today, we are discussing "The Fullness of Time" (Part 9) from Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
The Greco-Roman World
The syncretism of the times could also have been seen in what historians now call "mystery religions." These were not based on the ancient Olympian deities, but on others which seemed to be much more personal. In earlier times, people generally had followed the religion of their birthplace. But now, after the conquests of Alexander and of Rome, which gods one was to serve became a matter of personal choice. Therefore, one did not belong to a mystery religion by birth, but rather by initiation. Most of these religions were based on myths regarding the origin of the world , the sustenance of life, and the life of the deity. From Egypt came the myth of Isis and Osiris, which explained the fertility of the Nile and all other fertility. Greece contributed rites that from time immemorial had been celebrated near Athens. The cult of Mithra, a god of Indo-Iranian origin, was very popular in the army....
