    "Where Are They Now?" - Louisiana's Female Singers Of Color - 1960s To Present.

    in Entertainment

    Take A Journey With Us Tonight Throughout The State of Louisiana!


    Listen and reminence as the music flows like butter through your ears. Slippery, melancholy little notes that take you  away to another time and place. Listen... as it plays out from distant portals and doors of any city you visit.


    That's Louisiana!


    [ But, upon closer review anyone can see that the view is askew. ]


    Slanted towards almost certain oblivion of the female artist, and her legacy.


    At least, for those of ethnic backgrounds.


    We will explore a piece of Louisiana's 'omitted musical history' as we share the journey of a few who's footsteps opened then doors for women of color within the state.


    Join us....


    As We Get LIVE AFTER DARK!


    Your Hosts:  Betty Lewis & Diamond Ryan

    5/4/2015 The evolution of Paramedicine and those responsible for its rise

    in Caregiving

    Join us on Monday, May 4 starting at 12 noon central time for a special live broadcast of Wisconsin EMS Live.  Guests include:  Dr. Eugene Nagel, Randolph Mantooth and Nancy McFarland. 


    The 60 minute program is dedicated to discussing the start of Paramedic systems, those responsible for its rise in the 1960's and 70's, the determination and vision it took, and based on their experiences how they see the industry evolving into Community Paramedicine!  Listener questions will be invited during the live show.


    Eugene Nagel is a retired anesthesiologist. He was an innovative pioneer who served as medical director for the City of Miami Fire Department's rescue operation from 1964 to 1974. During those 10 years, Dr. Nagel developed the first paramedic program utilizing telemetry and voice medical control.  The biophone or “orange box” was a familiar piece of equipment on the TV show EMERENCY!  The TV show’s unit now resides on display at the Smithsonian Institute. 


    Randolph Mantooth is an actor, producer and speaker. Widely known for his role as Paramedic John Gage in the TV series EMERGENCY! -- the show that transformed America's perception and approach to emergency medical care in the 1970s and introduced millions to the word "paramedic" for the first time. Mr. Mantooth is a popular speaker at Fire and EMS events, and an advocate for firefighter health and safety.  His website is www.RandolphMantooth.com.


    Nancy McFarland is a retired LA County Fire Museum board director and Chair of the Pioneers of Paramedicine Committee. Ms. McFarland was instrumental in uniting the four doctors credited with starting the first (fire-based) paramedic programs in the United States in the late 1960s for taped interviews and a Lifetime Achievement Awards Gala in May of 2010.

    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.

    National Agenda with savage-el ~ Cahokia

    in Education

    A Thriving Ancient Metropolis
    According to archaeological finds, the city of Cahokia was inhabited from about A.D. 700 to 1400. At its peak, from A.D. 1050 to 1200, the city covered nearly six square miles and 10,000 to 20,000 people lived here. Over 120 mounds were built over time, and most of the mounds were enlarged several times. Houses were arranged in rows and around open plazas, and vast agricultural fields lay outside the city.


    The site is named for the Cahokia subtribe of the Illiniwek (or Illinois tribe, a loose confederacy of related peoples), who moved into the area in the 1600s. They were living nearby when the French arrived about 1699. Sometime in the mid-1800s, local historians suggested the site be called "Cahokia" to honor these later arrivals.


    Archaeological investigations and scientific tests, mostly since the 1920s and especially since the 1960s, have provided what is known of the once-thriving community.
