Host Cyrus Webb welcomes Torrian Ferguson, Marcus Cuffee and Elissa Gabrielle to Conversations LIVE to talk about the inspiration behind Modern Flavor Magazine and what you can expect from it in 2014.
Torrian Ferguson was born and raised in Miami, Florida. He got his first taste of cooking at Bethune Cookman College (now University) in his dorm room where he cooked pancakes and sausage for other students for money on the weekends. He is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University, a published author of fiction novels and has been in Essence, Ebony and Upscale Magazines. Ferguson also owned Black Literature Magazine but has sold his portion to the current owner. Currently, he is the Executive Chef at Embassy Suites Hotel in Greensboro, NC. Ferguson is editor-in-chief and started Modern Flavor Magazine to give up-and-coming chefs a place to shine and let the world know who they are. He also hopes to educate people that love culinary arts but are not classically trained.
Marcus Cuffee is a Chesapeake, Virginia native who was introduced to the kitchen by his grandmother. He opened his own catering company while in high school and met the love of his life. In 2004, with the influence of two mentors at Oscar Smith high school along with the CCAP program, Marcus landed in Hyde Park, New York looking to earn an associate’s degree at The Culinary Institute of America on a $80,000 scholarship. Following graduation in 2007, Cuffee began his career with Thompson Hospitality as Sous Chef and relaunched his catering company with his lifelong friend. Certain catering and Thompson Hospitality became a huge part of his life. After five years of working for Thompson in Norfolk VA, Marcus relocated to Raleigh, NC and received a promotion to Assistant Food Service Director. Here is where he and Torrian Ferguson met and became business partners and now friends. Cuffee has recently received another promotion withThompson to Regional Chef and helped launch Modern Flavor magazine as associate editor.
This podcast will be a philosophical discussion about certain limitations in the world of modern Spirituality and Occult modalities regarding the God/Goddess Union. Have we built these Ascended Masters, Gods and Goddesses in our limited image in the way the Big 3 Religions have build God in their human image? And in doing so have we also limited our own expansive capabilties to understanding the great Mysteries?
I'll also propose that modern Spirituality has chosen to focus on small details of a larger, more wholistic Spirituality of our worldwide Ancestors. In doing so, we've also limited our expansiveness.
Lastly I'll discuss a "reverse" perspective on Anthropomorphism: that the Ancients were instead creating symbols of God/Goddess which attributed Spiritual Connection to the Spirit in all things, rather than the more polularly accepted belief that they were attributing human characteristics to anything considered "non human."
Ms. Verna V. Nickelberry, mother of two sons and the grandmother of two little boys, Zion Truth Oliver and Israel Jadon Oliver, is a graduate of Northside High School and LeMoyne-Owen College located in Memphis, TN. Ms Nickelberry has completed classes toward a master degree in Theologies at Jacksonville Theological Seminary.
Ms. Nickelberry is the founder and editorial director of ORDINARY PEOPLE MAGAZINE (OPM).
ORDINARY PEOPLE magazine is the result of a God given assignment which Ms Nickelberry received in the 2005 but wasn’t birth until March of 2008.
“When God gave me the assignment I was excited and reluctant to take on such a huge task. I had no experience in this type of work. I didn’t know where to start, nor did I have the funds. So, I put it off for about two months, this only made the voice of God louder in my ear. I started in the fall of 2005, but was met with some obstacles and once again I stopped. On October 18, 2007, the voice of God spoke, “saying it was time to start on the magazine again.” And once again I had do idea as to where to start and no funds. I began to research the start up cost of producing a magazine. After weeks of spending nights on the internet, praying, and having conversations with God, things began to fall into place. It was then that I realized that this was not my idea, but God’s idea. Ordinary People magazine is not my magazine but God’s magazine, I am but the vessel used to carry out the mission that He has given me charge of.” ---Verna V Nickelberry

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.
Over 80,000 chemicals flow through our system of commerce, and many are going straight into our bodies. Even our unborn children are affected. Due to this constant exposure, we have approximately 200 synthetic industrial chemicals interacting with our cells every single day. Until recently, modern science really didn’t understand what that could mean for all of us in the long run, but that is changing.
Globally, disease rates are on the rise. Theories about the causes abound, yet the issues are complex and often muddied by the maneuvering of political and corporate interests. To explore different facets of common chemical exposure, Unacceptable Levels, was made in consultation with experts in multiple fields and is guided by a father on a personal journey as he attempts to bring these issues to light for everyone. Its primary goal? To determine whether we can prevent disease before it strikes us.
Unacceptable Levels opens the door to conversations about the chemical burden our bodies carry so that we can make informed decisions now and in the future. The film poses challenges to our companies, our government, and our society to do something about a nearly-unseen threat with the inspired knowledge that small changes can generate a massive impact.
We have discussed the condition in the world for the past few weeks after the show. We all hoped things would calm down - they haven't; in fact there is more anger and fighting as the days go on. All of us turn to Tarot and whatever collective gives us answers when we ourselves as troubled. Perhaps Tarot can help the world. You don't have to be an expert to help; just a sincere desire to get an answer for the planet, Please bring your cards and read along.
