SORT BY Relevancy
Instead of celebrating her crown, Ariana Miyamoto is already finding the need to defend it.
Japan's newest Miss Universe contestant broke barriers when she was recent chosen to represent her country. But because the 20-year-old is the daughter of a Japanese woman and a black man from America, some are questioning whether she really is Japanese enough to hold the title.
According to Japanese websites, comments on Twitter ranged from, "Is it okay to select a hafu to represent Japan?" to "Because this is Miss Universe Japan, don't you think hafu are a no-no." Hafu is a Japanese term used to refer to someone who is biracial.
In an interview with press, Miyamoto insisted that while she doesn't "look Japanese" on the outside, on the inside, there are many Japanese things about her.
In addition to being born and raised Nagasaki, the young adult also is a Japanese citizen who can speak the language fluently.
While some critics have been vocal about their hopes of having another contestant take her spot, others have shown their support for the newly crowned beauty queen.

Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, March 26th, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST is award winning jeweler and metalsmith George Sawyer.
We welcome your participation! Log into the chatroom or send a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter if you have a question for George during the interview!
George Sawyer is the Society of North American Goldsmith’s winner of this year’s Award of Excellence in Jewelry and Metal. He is the originator and internationally recognized master of gold mokume gane or "wood-grain metal".
George Sawyer designs Mirror ImageTM wedding and commitment rings, earrings, pendants, men's jewelry, custom pieces and other unique wearable fine art.
Looking at George Sawyer’s mesmerizing work is like gazing at clouds – you can see almost anything: water, wood, silk.
“I have always loved the refinement, color and subtlety of Japanese art. Here are some historic pieces of Japanese art metalwork, all
relating to the art of the sword, that have inspired my work.The pieces have a wonderful harmony of composition, color,
sculptural shape and fulfillment of purpose.”
Call it Irish grit. “If you grew up where I grew up,” McGraw recalls, “you were automatically hyphenated either Irish, Polish, or Italian, and your dad worked in the mill, that was a given.” Hailing from a small steel industry town about 50 miles outside of Buffalo, New York, McGraw was raised on Hee-Haw (“We loved Conway Twitty, or at least his haircut”) and rough games of hockey and football. Small for his age and showing little athletic promise, he gravitated towards music, and good thing: “If I’d have stuck with the sports I liked any longer I might have ended up getting my head taken off. We never wore pads, let alone helmets.” Instead, McGraw grew out his hair, picked up a cheap Japanese guitar, and at 13 started a rock band with friends, playing in bars a couple of nights a week—with a note from his mother in hand, in case the cops asked any questions.
As soon as he finished high school, McGraw hightailed it to Los Angeles with rock star dreams and a country sensibility. Wearing out records by Dwight Yoakam and Steve Earle, and “digging through stacks of junk at the Pasadena flea market looking for old Buck Owens and Johnny Cash on vinyl,” he developed his own unique hard-core hillbilly sound.
It’s a crazy life, and McGraw looks upon it with bemused satisfaction in “My So Called Life,” reflecting, “Some days I own this town, other days it shoots me down/Always I’m still hanging round, holdin’ on to hope.” Expertly depicting the driving pace of his “Honky Tonk Life,” McGraw stubbornly continues to hope: “I could quit all this road stuff, go back to my real job, put in a straight 9 to 5/But I love the neon, I love the people, and I love the Honky Tonk Life.”

About Master Petra: My first profession is architecture and my professional aspiration and goal was to build healing rooms and facilities for people who needed medical care. For me, the house is like a third skin. The physical skin is of course the first one, followed by the clothes we wear, being our second skin, and then the house we live in as our third skin. Throughout my professional life, I had the following experience again and again: even if the best interior designs, biological constructions and materials were applied, people still did not recover or they became sick. Now, I am one of the World Wide Representatives of Master Sha. As a Divine Channel, I am responsible for the Divine Temples worldwide. I feel deeply blessed and honored to have received this wonderful gift and, as a Divine Servant and Channel, I offer my service with dedication to heal and transform rooms so people who are in these rooms can also heal and transform.
Recently, it was reported in the news that a red heifer is being bred for the consecration of the priests and cleansing with a view to rebuilding the temple of God in Jerusalem. They claim the ark has already been constructed.
Many unsuspecting Christians, including some ill-informed media and the world will rally around this idea as though it is evidence that the people calling themselves Israel in Palestine are the Isreal of the Bible.
One of the surest signs that these are not the chosen people of God are the ongoing attempts to convince they world they are with the external trappings resembling the types and shadows of the Old Covenant.
For the informed, the Bible is clear in both Old and New Testaments that the Most High does not dwell in temples made with man's hands. This study will be a vigorous investigation of these claims with step by step analyses of the Scriptures.

In this episode of ODWIRA, we continue our series on the Zep Tepi - the creation of the world. The cosmology of Khanit and Kamit (Nubia and Egypt) delineates the process whereby the world was created by Amenet and Amen (Nyamewaa and Nyame in Akan) - The Great Mother and Great Father Who comprise the Supreme Being. We examine Annu.
The whites and their offspring have put forward the false notion that there were differing and 'competing' cosmologies in ancient Kamit based on different groups of people at different times having disparate beliefs. This is totally inaccurate. The various creation accounts found in the different centers of ritual (temples) in ancient Kamit and Khanit reference different aspects and stages of the unfolding of Creation. Thus, the accounts of Creation associated with Ta Apet, Khemenu, Men Nefer and Annu (Thebes, Hermopolis, Memphis and Heliopolis) detail the orderly unfolding of the Created Universe governed by specific Abosom (Deities) who govern their respective stages.
Misinformed Afurakanu/Afuraitkaitnut (Africans~Black People) embrace the pseudo-analysis published by the whites and their offspring and have therefore perpetuated this misinformation. Moreover, they have also sought to apply this pseudo-analysis to the various cultures of Afuraka/Afuraitkait (Africa). This is based on a lack of facility with the actual Abosom (Orisha, Vodou, Arusi, Ntorou/Ntorotu) - Deities - Who govern Creation. The people of Kamit and Khanit worshipped and learned directly from the same Abosom that we worship and learn directly from today. Ritual practice is thus key to understanding cosmology.
