    THE BIRTH OF OUR UNION...


    In the late 1880's steel had virtually replaced wood and stone as the primry load-carrying material in the erections of bridges and buildings.  This abrupt change in structual materials brought a demand for a new type of skill required of the working man.  Practically overnight, bridge carpenters became "bridgemen" and blacksmiths became "housesmiths" and 'architectural ironworkers.


    When American historian Fredrick Jackson Turner proclaimed the end of an era for the American Frontier, Ironworkers became known as 'COWBOYS OF THE SKIES.'

    Elmerine Bell-Save St. Mary Cemetery in Italy, TX

    in Family

    SAVE ST. MARY CEMETERY


    What is now known as St. Mary Cemetery, is located on Hughes Cemetery Road near the towns of Avalon, Forreston and Italy (Ellis County), Texas, dates back to at least 1851. The burial ground is shown on a county map dated 1861 and was a part of the Tarrant Plantation, owned by General Edward H. Tarrant, the person for whom Tarrant County, Texas, is named. The 1870 United States Federal Census shows the area encompassing the St. Mary Community as Ellis County, Texas, Waxahachie - Chambers Creek Post Office. As late as 1940, census records the St. Mary Community as having a school with a teacher in residence nearby. As further verification, a photograph exists from the early 1930s with images of a group of students with their teacher whose family owned a nearby farm.


    On March 24, 2012, family members who went to the cemetery as a part of quarterly maintenance reported that someone had encroached upon the burial grounds, desecrating the oldest portion of the cemetery on the west and north sides by removing mature trees and foliage. It appeared, from visible tracks in the soil, that some type of excavator had been used to create a road from Hughes Cemetery Road through the cemetery to the west, taking out gravestones - some that had been there for more than a century -along with the vegetation. Grave memorabilia were found within and north of the newly constructed road. Graves lay underneath the road and the topography of the entire west side of the cemetery had be compromised. At least three piles of trees, foliage and grave markers were viewed in a western field.

    Chit Chat with B.Fly Discusses Being Informed about LUPUS with Racquel Dozier

    in Radio

    On This Episode of The Beautiful Butterfly Show we will we Discussing " Being Informed About LUPUS" with Special Guest Racquel Dozier.


     Lupus In Color was created in 2004 by Racquel Dozier to cater to the needs of men,women & children of all colors of the rainbow suffering or directly affected with Lupus. Based out of Henrico, Virginia, Lupus In Color is assisting lupus warriors throughout the Richmond, Virginia area and beyond. The main goal of Lupus In Color is to give positive hope to lupus warriors through love and encouragement, positive support and interactions and exemplary empowered awareness.


    The history of lupus begins in 1828 when the French dermatologist, Biett described the disease. For the next 45 years, studies of the disease showed nothing more than descriptions that emphasized skin changes. In the mid 1800’s, Pierre Cazenave was the first person to have a comprehensive description of lupus. The disease was named because of a wolf-bite shaped rash (the butterfly rash) that appears across the nose and cheeks of many lupus patients. “Lupus” is the Latin word for wolf.


    In 1873, a dermatologist named Kaposi noted that people with a history of lupus lesions also experienced problems in internal organs. Then in the 1890’s, a famous American physician, Sir William Osler, discovered that some patients had internal organ involvement but no history of lupus skin problems at all. In 1948, a finding by Dr. Malcolm Hargraves of the Mayo Clinic that showed that patients with SLE had a LE cell in their blood, allowed doctors to develop a simple blood test. This blood test, along with a medical history and family history of lupus was used to diagnose many more cases of lupus.have also increased our understanding of the disease.

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "Black Africa, including British, French, Belgian, Portuguese, Italian, and Spanish possessions and the independent states of Abyssinia and Liberia and leaving out of our account Egypt and North Africa, on one hand, and South Africa, on the other, has an area of 8,200,000 square miles and a population of well over one hundred Millions of black men, with less than one hundred thousand whites...


    The Statistics South Africa Census 2011 showed that there were about 4,586,838 white people in South Africa, amounting to 8.9% of the country's population. This is a 6.8% increase since the 2001 census.


    "Commercial exploitation in Africa has already larger results to show than most people realize. Annually $200,000,000 worth of goods was coming out of Africa before the World War, including a third of the world's rubber, a quarter of the world's cocoa, and practically all of the world's cloves, gum -Arabic, and Palm oil. In exchange there was being returned to Africa one hundred millions in cotton cloth, twenty five millions in iron and steel, and as much in foods, and probably twenty five million in liquors."W.E.B.DuBois 


    The African continent is richly endowed with mineral resources – this cannot be disputed. The US Geological Survey (USGS) ranks Africa as the largest or second-largest reserve worldwide for bauxite (the main source of aluminium), cobalt (used to make alloys and batteries), industrial diamonds (needed to cut hard materials), manganese (the anticorrosive element in steel), phosphate rock (a key ingredient in fertilisers), platinum group metals (a primary component in automotive catalytic convertors), soda ash (an element in glass production), vermiculite (a component in fireproof materials) and zirconium (used to manufacture heat-resistant ceramic materials).

    Know Your Numbers to Get More Done

    in Business

    in business you have to know your numbers. And who's better at numbers than the US Census Bureau?

    Still you ask - what does this have to do with your business?

    Well, first understand that you're not alone. Lots of other people have their own businesses too. All shapes and sizes. Loads and loads of them.
     


    If you look at the data that the Census provides - and I don't care if you're in the U.S., or not, this info applies - you'll see some startling info:
     



    There are 22,491,080 Solopreneurs in the US.
    They average 70 hours a week working.



    So what do they get from all that effort?

    They average $45,687.79 in annual revenue…

    90% make less than $100,000 per year.

    Stunned? Shocked? Crying out loud? It's ok, I can totally relate.

    Businesses that have between 1 and 20 employees (there are 5,217,507 of them in the US) average 180 hours of work done per week.

    Yes, that's right - not much more than double the hours the Solopreneur puts in.

    And the kicker?

    These businesses average $457,205.35 in annual revenue.


    Because business today requires more than one person - and more than that, the MORE people you can tap into, the better off you are.

    Want proof?

    The companies that have over 20 employees (2,179,121 of them) average a whopping over $13 million annually.

    So the more people you can tap into on a cost effective basis, the better off your business is going to be.

    People who should listen to the show are entrepreneurs, career coaches,
