    #139 "Newtown's Trees" Author Frank Miller

    in Education

    Newtown's Trees is an allegory about the 2012 tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, using the town's beloved trees cut down by the protagonist as the central theme.  It is a book that can be appreciated on several levels; by adults who know the horrific details of the events that took place on a cold December morning, as well as by children who read the book or have it read to them as a sad story with an uplifting ending that outlines the strength of the human spirit.


    The tale has an even wider application to other news stories that portray bad things happening to good people. Newtown's Trees is a book that warms the heart and leaves the reader feeling that despite these often senseless tragedies, there's a lot of good in this world.


    Frank L. Miller is a writer and trained school psychologist. He earned an educational specialist degree in school psychology, and practiced for thirty-eight years before retiring in 2012. Frank adopted his son and daughter after marrying their mother, an elementary guidance counselor, and then adopted his daughter’s first-born child when she was unable to raise the child. The author lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with his wife of thirty-one years and the granddaughter they have thoroughly enjoyed raising who is now fourteen. Newtown’s Trees is Frank’s second publication, having written a book chronicling the battle he fought with his school district over his eldest daughter’s drug abuse and expulsion from school.

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Daniel Blanchard.


    Dan Blanchard the Award Winning Author, Speaker, Educator two-time Junior Olympian Wrestler, and two-time Junior Olympian Wrestling Coach grew up as a student-athlete. However, Dan admits that as a youth he was more of an athlete than a student.  Dan has now successfully completed fourteen years of college and has earned seven degrees. He teaches Social Studies in Connecticut’s largest inner-city high school. In addition, Dan is a Teacher Consultant for the University of Connecticut’s Writing Project. He was chosen by the American Federation of Teachers as their face and voice of educational reform.  Because Dan’s students repeatedly asked him to write a book  to tell others what he tells them,  Dan finally listened and has now authored two dynamic teen leadership books, Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Lucky? and Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Good. His third book of the Granddaddy’s Secrets series, Feeling Strong! will be out next year. As an educator, coach, author, and speaker Dan feels that it is his duty to positively influence our youth every chance that he gets! He lives with his wife, Jennifer, their five children, and family dog, Daisy and is available for speaking engagements.

    Chief Warhorse, OLMECS still alive in North Americas

    in Self Help

    http://www.theafrolounge.com/2013/10/14/blacks-were-the-first-people-in-the-americas/


    Historians and archaeologist have confirmed that the first people in the Americas were black. Does this mean the indigenous Americans are black? Yes. Although this information has been kept from us, our true identity is starting to unfold. For years we’ve been told that we arrived to the Americas by slave ship, when in fact most of us were already here. Is it possible that the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade is a fictitious story used to trick indigenous black people out of their homelands and history?“…Omission, not distortion, is the far more serious culprit in hiding the story of the black Indians of America.” Williams Lorenz Katz, Black Indians.Many black people who trace their heritage will not find any African slavery in their family. It’s also not a coincidence that many of us blacks have been told by an elder in our family that, “We have Indian in our blood.” There were no ‘red Indians’ until the colonizers began mixing with the indigenous blacks. Below is a short list of black native tribes:The Washitaw of the Louisiana/Midwest
    The Yamasee of the South East
    The Iroquois
    The Cherokee Indians
    The Blackfoot Indians
    The Pequot and Mohegans of Connecticut
    The Black Californians (Calafians) (CAL in CALifornia literally means BLAK, after the name of the Great Mamma KALi / Queen KALifa)
    The Olmecs of Mexico
    The Darienite of Panama
    The Seminole Indians
    The Creek Indians
    The Chata/Choctaw IndiansMoundville Archeological Park, located near Birmingham, AL is an example of how there has been an attempt to suppress the original identity of the Native Americans. Since the early 1970s, the park’s museum had statues that depicted the Native Americans as black people. In 2010, those statues were replaced with white Native Americans.
