  • War of the Words Radio #94: Roya Darvishian talks Conflict 26 Title Fight

    in MMA

                                            BROUGHT TO YOU TODAY BY SOR SUMRIT FIGHT STORE


    Join us today @8:30AM as we catch up with title challenger Roya Darvishian, who will clash with Ashley Samples THIS Saturday night in Macon at Conflict 26!


    Darvishian won the RFS title and defended it in 2014, snagging a Fight Lab title and wrestling the TOC crown from Charity Walker along the way. Roya is a smart and dangerous opponent, with five round level cardio and submission skills that are nothing short of game changing inside the cage. Having also faced a wealth of talent, Darvishian is no doubt a legit champion.


    There are 20 fights between Samples and Darvishian, and together they have faced nearly every emerging star in our area (and farther). Half of these fights have been for a title, and together they hold seven exciting finishes. Darvishian is a true champion with a very bright future ahead of her inside the cage and out, and this fight is yet another challenge that she faces with unmatched tenacity.


    Don’t miss Samples Vs Darvishian for the Conflict Strawweight title on April 4th at the Macon Auditorium as part of Conflict 26! You can keep up with all the news and action right here or on Facebook with War of the Words!

    ELENA RADFORD! INCA SHAMAN TOOLS AND PRODUCTS!

    in Spirituality

    -Elena Radford


    Born and raised in Peru, Elena Camargo Radford comes from a lineage of an Ancient Incan Culture. This ancient linage is steeped in shamanic teachings and practices. She has inherited and developed the sacred language and communication used by her people from over thousands of years ago. The tools accompanying these skills are multi-dimensional in quality and unlike others, allow Elena to tap into the DNA and ancestral heritage of the subjects in order to heal them on every level, reaching the spirit and soul, eliminating any and all negative energy. This technique, unique to the Ancient Incan Tribe, has been suppressed over the centuries…


    As a child, Elena’s questions about life were often received on a vibrational level, in stillness, “They just came to me from the plants, the animals and the mountains,” said Elena. During her childhood, this same connection existed with other children as it would come to her in a wave of emotion, feeling their story, their background, their home. Trusting this feeling, and knowing she has a gift, Elena cultivated, nourished and developed these qualities well into her college years until she moved to the United States. “Culturally,” she says, “it was different here and I found people not understanding or embracing my ways. I was young too. Consequently I tried to shut out my natural tendencies of intuition and healing. I thought it didn’t fit into the lifestyle here.”


    Elena’s practice of Inca shamanism includes, activating water, Crystals, and the information within them that allows people to clear their DNA. As an Incan Shaman, she is well revered and respected by her peers. Elena shares her gifts and insights, by providing numerous services to others, including individual sessions, web-seminars and workshops.

    Your Family Name Was Not Changed at Ellis Island - Kenneth A. Bravo, JD

    in History

    Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.


    There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island.  Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.


    When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying.  When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States.  He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored.  Finally the Times responded.  They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue.  The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story.  He located about half a dozen.  After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.


    Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.  He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.  Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.
