    History Today

    in News

    On the inaugural edition of History Today, host Paul Angel, the managing editor of The Barnes Review (TBR) history magazine, will be discussing a variety of historical matters with an eye toward how they affect our lives today.


    The riots in Ferguson and Baltimore are still on everyone’s mind. The media seems obsessed with giving a forum to disgruntled blacks who are having a hard time admitting that one’s life is what one makes of it.  (And one’s culture, as well.) Besides the bugaboos of “white entitlement” and “white racism,” slavery, of course, is the “reason” many blacks use to justify the sad state of the urban areas in which they dwell.


    With that in mind, we will be discussing several historical events that deny this narrative.


    Hundreds of thousands of Irish were sold into slavery by the British and brought to North America and the Caribbean. The men were literally worked to death, and the women used to produce an army of half-breed slaves. The Irish were the first slaves brought to the New World—not the Africans.  But somehow, the Irish overcame this and thrived in America.


    Michael Rockefeller, the son of the late Nelson Rockefeller, ventured off to Papua/New Guinea in the last 1950s and early 1960s to collect the art of the head-hunting cannibal Asmat people of the island. What happened to him after that is one of the great missing person’s cases of the 20th century. But now that case has been solved—and it is a shocker.


    We will be discussing the black Asmat people and their strange and violent culture which bears an amazing resemblance to the culture of inner-city black America.


    With Paul will be his partner in historical crime, Dave Gahary, the host of “Who’s the Bad Guy?”


    Please join us and take a politically incorrect tour through history from a non-mainstream perspective.

    Health You and I :Essential oils and Jamaican herbs,use in illness and cooking

    in Music

    Live: Essential oils  and Jamaican herbs - its use in illness and cooking


    An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the "oil of" the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.Essential oils do not form a distinctive category for any medical, pharmacological, or culinary purpose. They are not essential for health.


    Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.


    Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes. Claims for the efficacy of medical treatments, and treatment of cancers in particular, are now subject to regulation in most countries.As the use of essential oils has declined in evidence-based medicine, one must consult older textbooks for much information on their use.


    Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine that claims that essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer, heated over a candle flame, or burned as incense.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_oil.
