Use the controls in the far right panel to increase or decrease the number of terms automatically displayed (or to completely turn that feature off). Posted on 21 March 2013 by Dumb ScientistIf a student asks why Alaska warms from January to July, saying "that's the annual cycle" isn't a real answer.
Similarly, many people blame the recent 50 year warming trend on various "climate cycles" but don't explain the physics causing Earth to gain energy. Tung and Zhou subtract any apparent "oscillations" with periods between 50 and 90 years without explaining the physics causing Earth to gain and lose energy, as depicted in their Figure 4.
ENSO, which can be defined based on pressure differences and mostly trades energy between the deep ocean and the surface.
Second, their unphysical claim isn't really a conclusion; it's actually the assumption that (if true) would have justified removing the AMO to determine the anthropogenic warming trend. Tung and Zhou implicitly assumed that the anthropogenic warming rate is constant before and after 1950, and (surprise!) that's what they found. Since the words "energy" and "heat" don't appear in Tung and Zhou 2013, let's approximate the energy they're ignoring. Internal variability moves heat around the Earth's climate without altering its total heat content. It is rather telling that Tung & Zhou 2013 is so shy at presenting the actual CET data. I don't think AMO has ever definitively been shown to be anything other than SST response to surface warming.
Tamino has examined the AMO data several times, and in this post he states:I regressed global temperature on AMO, and of course I get a strong correlation (nobody disputes they're correlated, but causation can go either way). In regards to the last paragraph:You can not assume that ocean circulations only move heat around the earth system and have no effect on the net energy budget.
I'm almost embarrassed to pipe up in these threads because my science knowledge is so sub-par, but I can't resist pointing out: at WUWT right now this AMO is undoubtedly the hot topic. The article linked to a radiative forcings chart that includes deforestation as a small "land use" component.
This shouldn't be too much of a surprise, if only because moving a substantial amount of carbon from the lithosphere into the atmosphere (via burning fossil fuels) means that there is more carbon sloshing about.  See the IPCC report for details, or better still, David Archers excellent primer on the carbon cycle.
TIL (today I learned) a new phrase from this article in the Times about a showdown between a McDonald's in Queens and a group of elderly Korean patrons: naturally occurring retirement community (NORC). The demographic term "NORC" was first coined in the 1980s by Michael Hunt, a professor of urban planning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Interestingly, and perhaps surprisingly in an age where government funding of any social program is greeted with derision, NORCs are eligible for funding at local, state, and federal levels to provide support for services for the elderly. What counts as a "sizeable elderly population" varies from place to place (and from one level of government to the next), but NORCs are important because once a community meets the respective criteria, it becomes eligible for local, state, and federal funds retroactively to provide that community with the support services elderly populations typically need. Not only are they delicious (when made right, and we'll get to that), but they practically create their own conversation.
To go along with his wind map of the Earth, Cameron Beccario has made a world map of global ocean currents with data that updates every five days or so. From Star Wars to Life of Pi, this is a video compilation of clips from every movie that's won the Best Visual Effects Oscar since the introduction of the award in 1977. On Daring Fireball, John Gruber reflects on the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh by noting what seems particularly Apple-like about the Mac. The second aspect of the original Mac that stands out today as Apple-like is putting just enough whimsy into the experience. In 1976, legendary cosmologist and astronomer Carl Sagan tried to recruit a 17-year-old Neil deGrasse Tyson to Cornell University. The Viking Missions referred to in the letter were the two probes sent to Mars in the mid-1970s.
Tyson occupies a role in today's society similar to Sagan's in the 1980s as an unofficial public spokesman of the wonderous world of science. Letter courtesy of The Seth Macfarlane Collection of the Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan Archive at the Library of Congress, which is chock full of great Sagan stuff. A geothermal engineering project in Iceland drilled 1.3 miles into the Earth and unexpectedly hit a pocket of magma. This meant cementing a steel casing into the well, leaving a perforated section at the bottom closest to the magma. The well funnelled superheated, high-pressure steam for months at temperatures of over 450°C -- a world record. In an interview with an Australian radio station, Arcade Fire's Win Butler said that the music on the Her movie soundtrack will see an official release in some form. Each February I experience the unrestrained joy of attending the ski and snowboard trade show in Denver. We're talking about kids spending the night their schools, commutes a few miles that took more than ten hours, helicopters searching for stranded drivers, and a call to the National Guard for help. From InFocus, here's a collection of photos that will give you a good idea of what happens when snowstorm hits a population not accustomed to that kind of weather.
But if you're making light of the situation, or more realistically using it to reinforce your view of the South and the people in it as full of backwards blubberers, you are an asshole. When it snows where you live, the salt and the snowplows are out on the streets before you even wake up. When it snows where you live, it is the latest in a string of snowfalls that date back centuries. In a short video from The Atlantic, science writer Philip Ball explains why Isaac Newton picked ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet) for the colors of the spectrum and not 3 or 6 or even 16 other possible colors. Newton was the first to demonstrate through his famous prism experiments that color is intrinsic to light.
Ball is the author of Bright Earth: Art and the Invention of Color, which looks pretty interesting. In a thread about the newly visible supernova in the M82 galaxy, MetaFilter user Ivan Fyodorovich offered up this plain-English explanation of what happens when a star dies and goes supernova.
This time, however, the core of the star is mostly nickel and iron, and they cannot ordinarily be fused into heavier elements, so as the star shrinks and the temperature and density increase, there is no nuclear fusion ignition of the nickel and iron to counteract the contraction. Mario Wienerroither takes music videos, strips out all the sound, and then foleys back in sound effects based on what people are doing in the video. A "scent solutions" company called Air Aroma made a Macbook Pro unboxing smell for an art exhibition in Melbourne last year. If you haven't been watching the NFL at all this season but are planning on tuning into the Super Bowl, this video by ESPN will prepare you by recapping the entire season in under three minutes. The discovery has come in the form of fossilized impressions of wood and leaves in the region of Antarctica's Mount Achernar.
It is commonly accepted that during the late Permian and early Triassic periods, as much as 250 million years ago, the whole world would have been far hotter than it is today. Sarah Feakins, a biogeochemist from the University of Southern California, posits that the Antarctic coast was once lined with beeches and conifers; based on evidence taken from leaf waxes found in sediment cores extracted from the Ross Ice Shelf. A period of warmer climate around 15 million years ago, known as the Miocene period, could have had areas of the Antarctic resembling the kind of forested tundra seen today in New Zealand or parts of Chile. Update: Here's the answer to the puzzle, presumably by some time traveling super-being from the future. My copy of "Wise, Witty, and Tender Sayings," which I bought a few years ago from a secondhand bookseller, is the tenth edition, from 1896, which gives Main an enviably long time on the back-list.
Update: Win Butler of Arcade Fire now says the Her soundtrack will be released in some form eventually. Great post by Nick Carr on Scouting New York comparing the movie locations in The Godfather to what they look like today. Because the film is a period piece, The Godfather actually presents a fascinating record of what 1940s-era New York City locations still existed in the early-1970s.
Gothamist uncovered a NYC guide book from the 1920s called Valentine's City of New York: A Guide Book. In an "only Nixon can go to China" moment in physics, Stephen Hawking now says "there are no black holes".
Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that "there are no black holes" -- at least not in the sense we usually imagine -- would probably be dismissed as cranks. In its stead, Hawking's radical proposal is a much more benign "apparent horizon", which only temporarily holds matter and energy prisoner before eventually releasing them, albeit in a more garbled form.
Spoiler alert: people have been saying "spoiler alert" since the early 80s but it became a popular term only relatively recently. Despite his dislike of the term, Seitz said he wrestles with the concept professionally and vividly remembers his first spoiler experience. This oral history of Swingers over at Grantland got a little long for me (but if you're a fan, you should definitely read the whole thing), but there are good bits throughout.
Wurmfeld: I cultivated a lot of relationships with the people around town selling short ends. Liman: The problem with shooting on short ends, though, is that it takes four minutes to reload a conventional camera.
Ludwig: The camera was much louder than a regular camera that you'd use for a feature film.
Liman: To absorb the sound, I would take my down jacket and put it over the camera and then take the two arms and tie them together underneath the lens.
Liman: Every day we'd panic because I was shooting more film than I thought I was gonna shoot and we didn't have enough film and we didn't have any money.
The first installment was a classic, but this second video of NFL players and coaches overdubbed with alternate dialogue is pretty great as well. Incredible that the Mac is still around; the 90s were a dire time for Apple and it's amazing to see the current fantastic iMacs and Macbooks that came after some epically bad mid-90s machines. If you have had any prior experience with personal computers, what you might expect to see is some sort of opaque code, called a "prompt," consisting of phosphorescent green or white letters on a murky background. Levy has also appended a never-seen-before transcript of his interview with Steve Jobs onto the Kindle version of Insanely Great, a book Levy wrote about the Mac. What's clear when you talk to Apple's executives is that the company believes that people don't have to choose between a laptop, a tablet, and a smartphone. As always, Folklore.org is an amazing source for stories about the Mac told by the folks who were there. Susan Kare designed the icons, the interface elements, and fonts for the original Macintosh. Stephen Fry recounts his experience with the Mac, including the little tidbit that he and Douglas Adams bought the first two Macs in Europe (as far as he knows). I like to claim that I bought the second Macintosh computer ever sold in Europe in that January, 30 years ago. The Next Web has an interview with Daniel Kottke (no relation) and Randy Wigginton on programming the original Mac.
TNW: When you look at today's Macs, as well as the iPhone and the iPad, do you see how it traces back to that original genesis? Randy: It was more of a philosophy - let's bring the theoretical into now - and the focus was on the user, not on the programmer.
Here, it was all about the user, and the programmers had to work their asses off to make it easy for the user to do what they wanted. Like Daniel says, it's definitely the case that there were academic and business places with similar technology, but they had never attempted to reach a mass market. A week after Jobs unveiled the Mac at the Apple shareholders meeting, he did the whole thing again at a meeting of the Boston Computer Society. I always forget about Interview magazine but I really shouldn't because a) Warhol and b) they consistently pair interesting people together for interviews. MCQUEEN: You've been on the scene as an artist now for 10 years, which is impressive, given the level of interest and artistry that you've managed to sustain in your work. A supernova erupted recently1 in galaxy M82, a mere 11.4 million light years away from Earth, which means that it was close enough to be discovered by someone using an ordinary telescope in London and may be visible with binoculars sometime in the next two weeks.
M82's proximity means that there are many existing images of it, pre-explosion, including some from the Hubble Space Telescope.
We live in a world where it's easier to communicate with another human being than ever before - a world that also places relentless demands on our time and attention. Even with the amazing technology we have in our pockets, we can fly through the day without remember-ing to send a simple "I love you" to the most important person in our lives. Update: Unsurprisingly, Greg had gotten quite a bit of a negative response to Romantimatic.
I played chess with my dad growing up, but actually learning how to play (studying openings, notation, etc.) seemed daunting and at cross purposes with what I liked about the game.
Mostly because of jet aircraft, there are very few places in the world free of man-made noise. For the past 30 years, Hempton has made it his mission to discover what he calls the last great quiet places, areas that clock in at audible human noise-free intervals of 15 minutes or more.
Tom Junod writes about Bob Dylan and what we know and don't know about him and what that says about our ability to know anything about anyone. Bob Dylan is either the most public private man in the world or the most private public one. I hope that by posting this article about anxiety here, I will feel less anxious about having to read it for tips on how to reduce my extremely high levels of current stress and anxiety. Sheryl Canter extensively researched the best way to season a cast iron pan and here is what she recommends you do.
I've read dozens of Web pages on how to season cast iron, and there is no consensus in the advice.
They were now armed with flame throwers, portable machine-guns and grenades fired from rifles. Huge artillery pieces fired with pinpoint accuracy - using only aerial photos and maths they could score a hit on the first shot. While the claim that Mad Men could have driven a nearly 50% (representing an additional 10 billion cigarettes) increase in Lucky Strike sounds like typical advertising puffery, it's hard to pin down another driver. Kathryn Schulz went looking for those rare moments in literature where "punctuation pops its head up over the prose" and found five noteworthy uses. It was so cold that even inside his cabin, even with the small coal stove, the moisture in his breath condensed into ice on the walls and ceiling.
Scientists at the University of Vermont's Proctor Maple Research Center have made an interesting discovery. They realized that their discovery meant sugarmakers could use saplings, densely planted in open fields, to harvest sap. In a natural forest, which varies in maple density, an average 60 to 100 taps per acre will yield 40 to 50 gallons of syrup. Artist Dennis Hlynsky films birds in flight and then uses After Effects to make their flight paths visible, like the contrails of high-flying jets. Using nothing more than archival film footage, on-camera interviews, period music, and a narrator's voiceover, the stories of Emmitt Till, the Montgomery bus boycott, and the desegregation of southern schools riveted me to the couch like few viewing experiences have.
Some light weekend reading: the New Yorker's David Remnick checks in on how the Obama Presidency is going, five years in. Barack Obama could not run his campaign for the Presidency based on political accomplishment or on the heroic service of his youth.
Photographer Jeremy Cowart writes about a rare time he made a real connection with one of his celebrity subjects. Once we wrapped up his session, Tika walked off set and John came to me and whispered in my ear "Hey can you sneak a few more portraits of me?" and I said "sure of course". Bill Murray does the Ask Me Anything thing over at Reddit and I think it's even better than Seinfeld's. Q: If you could go back in time and have a conversation with one person, who would it be and why? Working Group I Contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Annex I, Glossary, pp. Tung and Zhou 2013 is the latest attempt to blame a large part of Earth's warming on the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO), which is a long-term fluctuation in N. They seem to imply that these cycles are more compelling than the mainstream explanation which involves nonrepeating events.
Global warming doesn't change how often volcanos erupt, so it can also be subtracted without ignoring AGW.
Even though global warming might indirectly affect ENSO, it's important to note that it hasn't yet: the ENSO index doesn't have a significant 50-year trend. Anthropogenic warming is caused primarily by the radiative forcings of greenhouse gases, which didn't skyrocket until about 1950 when our population and energy use per person both skyrocketed.
Removing the AMO to determine anthropogenic warming would only be justified if detrending the AMO from 1856-2011 actually removed the trend due to anthropogenic warming. Warming a crude model of the atmosphere and upper layer of the ocean by 1°C requires about 10,000,000 megaton atomic bombs of energy.
I've already noted that the deep ocean can't be the source of surface warming because the Argo probes show that the deep ocean is also warming. Taking the temperature of the earth in 1910 and 2013 and joining the dots, we get a total temperature rise of 0.8o C, as confirmed by the Hadcrut 4 Global Mean temperature. It's negative because clearing rainforests to plant endless fields of identical crops increases the albedo, reflecting more sunlight and producing a slight cooling effect.I've already noted that deforestation also releases CO2 but in much smaller quantities than fossil fuel emissions.
He defined NORCs as neighborhoods and housing developments, originally built for young families, in which 50 percent of the residents are 60 years or older and have aged in place.
He beefed up the players on one team (7'0", 440 lbs, good at everything) and put a bunch of scrubs on the other team (5'0", 160 lbs, bad at everything).
Before I tell you what happened next, I want to lay out a couple of things: first, I made no actual hacks to this game. Four seated couples maneuver vintage tractors into daisy chains and do-si-dos in front of a live audience.
Tyson is even hosting an updated version of Sagan's seminal Cosmos series for Fox, which debuts on March 9th. And yeah, that's Seth Macfarlane, creator of Family Guy and much-maligned host of the Oscars. Instead of capping the hole, as was done in a similar instance previously, they decided to see if they could harness the energy of the magma.
The IDDP and Iceland's National Power Company, which operates the Krafla geothermal power plant nearby, decided to make a substantial investment to investigate the hole further. Heat was allowed to slowly build in the borehole, and eventually superheated steam flowed up through the well for the next two years. The music will get out there, it's just, like, a question of if we want to sell it to people or give to people or record other songs or whatever. In Star Trek: Voyager, a Starfleet ship is stranded on the other side of the galaxy and the estimated travel time back to Federation space is 75 years. Then snowboarding went mainstream-the X Games, Mountain Dew ads, Shaun White-and, inevitably, it lost a bit of its mojo.
Today's skiers can choose to carve turns, launch off the slopestyle jumps, hammer bumps, navigate steeps, tour the backcountry, rip bottomless pow, race in a beer league, or just go skiing like a vacationer from Chicago or Boca Friggin' Raton. But Atlanta residents were faced with a whole lot of chaos (and even more traffic) when they were hit with some unusually white weather.
It's hard to remember sometimes, but things are different in places you do not personally live. When you talk about six inches of snow in your city, you are almost definitely talking about six inches of snow on the median strip and shoulder, and highways that are slick, but clear.


As part of those experiments, he also divvied up the spectrum in his own idiosyncratic way, giving us ROYGBIV.
His mention in the video of the changing perception of color throughout history reminds me of my favorite segment of Radiolab, which covers that very topic. Again, when there's not enough oxygen being fused to generate energy to balance the pressure of gravitational contraction, the star begins to shrink, almost doubling the temperature, tripling the density, and causing the silicon (which was produced by the oxygen fusion) to begin fusing, in its own complicated sequence involving the alpha process, with the end result of nickel-56 (which radioactively decays into cobalt-56 and iron-56). Finally, when there's not enough silicon being fused to generate energy to balance the pressure of gravitational contraction, the star begins to shrink.
Here the limit of pressure and density is the electron degeneracy pressure, which is the resistance of electrons being forced to occupy the same energy states, which they can't. He's also done Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, Prodigy's Firestarter, and Queen's I Want to Break Free. From there, professional perfume makers used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples.
Even the stumps of ancient tree trunks have been uncovered, believed to date back to prehistoric times. Chemical study of the leaf wax samples indicates that during the summer months, the coast of Antarctica could have been as warm as 15°F. The New Yorker has an excerpt adapted from the book about George Eliot's biggest fan, Alexander Main. When I thumb through its pages of quotations, some of them extending for more than a page, printed in a font size that has me reaching for reading glasses, I am overcome by a dreadful sense of depletion.
But when the call to redefine these cosmic crunchers comes from Stephen Hawking, it's worth taking notice. Return of the Jedi had just come out, and a friend from school who had read the novelization came up to him.
I thought to myself: We'll never get through the movie if we shoot a minute, spend four minutes reloading, shoot a minute, spend four minutes reloading. He just wanted to shoot, shoot, shoot, so we would lie to him and say that we were out of film. From the instant the woman running the demo switched on that strange-looking contraption (inspired in part by the Cuisinart food processor), I knew the Macintosh would change millions of lives, including my own. There were the fratboys, the insiders, the football players, and developers played a role too. Instead, Apple believes that every one of its products has particular strengths for particular tasks, and that people should be able to switch among them with ease. And it's being done by a bunch of people who are incredibly talented but who in most organizations would be working three levels below the impact of the decisions they're making in the organization. Before then it had always been let's make it so programmers can do stuff and produce programs.
The paradigm before the Mac in terms of Apple products was command-line commands in the Apple II and the Apple III.
Case in point: director Steve McQueen (Shame, 12 Years a Slave, not Bullitt) interviews Kanye West for the Feb 2014 issue.
Romantimatic (App Store) is an app that reminds you to do one simple thing: send your significant other a "I'm thinking of you" note. He only counts areas of around 3,100 square kilometres (1,200 square miles) or larger -- enough to create a sound buffer around a central point of absolute quiet.
A Japanese company called Type is selling eyeglasses that evoke the Helvetica and Garamond typefaces.
I wonder what some of the older Raygun-inspired GarageFonts typefaces would look like as glasses? It does matter what oil you use, and the oil that gives the best results is not in this list. Above, planes, that in 1914 would have appeared unimaginably sophisticated, duelled in the skies, some carrying experimental wireless radio sets, reporting real-time reconnaissance. Tanks had gone from the drawing board to the battlefield in just two years, also changing war forever.
Lucky Strike did launch new flavors, update packaging and launch "capsule" cigarettes in the five years since Mad Men premiered, but so too did its competitors.
It seems that the sap used to produce maple syrup doesn't flow from the tops of trees, it gets sucked up from the trees' roots.
In other words, it is possible that maple syrup could now be produced as a row crop like every other commercial crop in North America. According to the researchers' calculations, an acre of what is now called "the plantation method" could sustain 5,800 saplings with taps yielding 400 gallons of syrup per acre.
As compelling as the history of the civil rights movement in America is, the production of the film deserves some of the credit for its power. It happened during a shoot with the cast of The Haves and the Have Nots, a show on Oprah's network.
A real answer would involve physics: the northern hemisphere receives more energy in July because it points toward the Sun more directly in July than in January. But the universe is full of cycles and nonrepeating events, all of which obey the laws of physics. More comprehensive analyses also show total anthropogenic radiative forcings increasing dramatically after 1950. But that's unphysical: basic physics show that the anthropogenic warming rate should be higher after 1950. Indeed, the peaks (or rises) they show at 1780 & 1840 do not exist outside their heavily smoothed frequency analysis. It is POSSIBLE that it did come from internal variability changing radiativly active parts of the system. First it was the sun, then it was volcanoes, then it was cosmic rays, then it was the Pacific decadal oscillation, now it's the ~Atlantic~ decadal oscillation (I might have the order wrong).Funny how the one unifying "theory" seems to be Whatever It Is, It ~Ain't~ Greenhouse Gases!
I'm only focusing on internal variability because Tung and Zhou used that term six times in their paper.This possibility can not be dismissed out of hand as simply being "unphysical"Note that I'm not dismissing AMO radiative forcings as unphysical. If deforestation before 1950 warmed the planet at the same rate as fossil fuel emissions after 1950, then why did atmospheric CO2 increase faster after 1950?
Over time, this threshold definition has been adjusted by communities and policymakers to reflect local residential patterns. I didn't have some special jailbroken Xbox, nor a special copy of Madden, nor anything like that. Macfarlane was a big fan of the original Cosmos series and was instrumental in getting the new series made.
There are many pieces on the soundtrack that are kind of based on actual songs that we've never really recorded.
Early on in the show, it's revealed the ship has only 38 photon torpedoes and "no way to replace them after they're gone".
The first generation of riders got real jobs and started having kids, and snowboarding's image never matured to accommodate them.
It's cool; there's a place for you and a group of likeminded folks who would love to have you.
This, as before, balances against the gravitational pressure and returns the star to equilibrium. On completion the laptop was sent back to Australia, travelling nearly 50,000kms and returned to our clients together with scent of an Apple Macbook Pro.
I can think of no surer way to be put off the work of George Eliot than by trying to read the "Wise, Witty, and Tender Sayings." On any given page is an out-of-context pronouncement -- "iteration, like friction, is likely to generate heat instead of progress" -- or a phrase so recondite that it requires several readings before it can be parsed. In a paper posted online, the physicist, based at the University of Cambridge, UK, and one of the creators of modern black-hole theory, does away with the notion of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole, beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape. Which also meant the actors could get through 60 seconds of a scene and I'd have to call reload.
I think it was developed so Godard could have a camera that would fit into his bicycle basket. Words appeared with the clarity of text on a printed page - and for the first time, ordinary people had the power to format text as professional printers did. On a pleasant, light background (you can later change the background to any of a number of patterns, if you like), little pictures called "icons" appear, representing choices available to you. This is why the Mac is still relevant, 30 years on-because sometimes a device with a keyboard and a trackpad is the best tool for the job.
For all I know someone somewhere had bought one ten minutes earlier, but these were the first two that the only shop selling them in London had in stock on the 24th January 1984, so I'm sticking to my story.
In the open source world of Linux, I'm messing around with Raspberry Pis now, and it terrifies me, because I think, "This is not ready for the consumer," but then I think about Android, which is built on top of Linux. So you talk about doing all of these other things, which is great, but there's really no amount of money that could make you more influential than you are now. You attach software to the expression of romantic love, and some people are going to see it as cynical. But I've maintained a non-playing interest in the game and have even been playing a little bit recently again, teaching my son how to play. Over the years, his list has shrunk as he returns to a previously quiet spot, only to find it now polluted by noise. He has been giving interviews-albeit contentious ones-for as long as he's been making music, and he's been making music for more than fifty years. This oil is ideal for seasoning cast iron for the same reason it's an ideal base for oil paint and wood finishes.
In 1914 generals on horseback galloped across battlefields as men in cloth caps charged the enemy without the necessary covering fire. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Standing six feet seven inches, Freuchen was an arctic explorer, journalist, author, and anthropologist. Which means that maple syrup makers can use saplings instead of fully grown maple trees to produce syrup. If the method is realized, producing maple syrup on a commercial scale may no longer be restricted to those with forest land; it could require just 50 acres of arable land instead of 500 acres of forest.
To hear the stories of these momentous events told by the participants themselves, without embellishment, is quite extraordinary. Andrew Wylie, a leading literary agent, said he thought that publishers would pay between seventeen and twenty million dollars for the book-the most ever for a work of nonfiction-and around twelve million for Michelle Obama's memoirs. His Democratic and Republican opponents were right: he ran largely on language, on the expression of a country's potential and the self-expression of a complicated man who could reflect and lead that country. As usual with shoots like this, Cowart only got a few minutes with each subject, time to shoot but not much else. The thing about Einstein was that he was a theoretical physicist, so they were all theories.
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” substantiates the viability of the sweat equity investment made through labor and cultural contributions by Cotton Pickers and other Plantation Workers. Previous attempts include Bob Tisdale's claim and Zhou and Tung 2012 which WUWT advertised.
Because mainstream science addresses the energy balance, I find it more compelling than math without a basis in physics.
Note that the AMO index is defined solely on temperatures, so anthropogenic global warming can increase the AMO index.
As a result, their approach overestimates anthropogenic warming before 1950, and underestimates it after 1950. Atlantic temperatures that contain an anthropogenic trend over the last 33 years from global temperatures, and seem surprised to find a lower anthropogenic trend over the last 33 years. If AMO internal variability were causing surface warming through changes in circulation, the deep N. Isn’t that what the IPCC claims is the extent of Global Warming?LINKSome of us have been observing the AMO effect for years, noting the almost perfect coincidence between a plot of the peaks of the 'apparent' AMO cycle, as reflected in the Southern Hemisphere temperature peaks circa 1880,1940, and 2000 and the steady rise in concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.LINKIf the CO2 curve is extended with ice core data, the rise in the peaks follows the carbon dioxide rise for 160 years. Once their analysis is shorn of this fantasy, is this any more than a sophisticated version of the drivel Akasofu produced a few years back?
Yes, negative -- suggesting that global temperature is cause, not effect.I also regressed global temperature on AMO and a time trend. That right there to me ought to be a huge red flag to them that motivated reasoning and not genuine curiosity is in the driver's seat. Instead, I've repeatedly pointed out that it's unphysical to assume that anthropogenic radiative forcings are the same before and after 1950. Who hasn't considered whether or not they'd ever prefer a fresh jalape~no to a pickled one, and who hasn't considered de-friending a friend who dares to express a preference for fresh over pickled? But fundamental to the genius of the smiling Mac is that it didn't come across as silly or corny. Yeah, there's a song called Milk and Honey and a song called Dimensions that are, like, lost great Arcade Fire songs. So I decided I would shoot the movie with this documentary 35-millimeter film camera that was not designed to shoot dialogue because it sounds like a sewing machine. But I really think that as insane as that setup was, it created a really safe environment for the actors. Until that point, personal computers were locked in an esoteric realm of codes and commands. Selecting and moving text was made dramatically easier by the then-quaint mouse accompanying the keyboard.
A word-processing program might be represented by a pen, while the program that lets you draw pictures might have a paintbrush icon. The group might stay together maybe for one more iteration of the product, and then they'll go their separate ways. So my question is: What are you going to do with all of the influence that you have right now?
But the light the supernova shines on the dust could teach astronomers something about the host galaxy, too. We've wrapped code around almost everything in our lives, but deeply felt emotion is still supposed to be start-to-finish analog. Here are some hints: What oil do artists mix with pigment for a high quality oil paint that dries hard and glassy on the canvas? Even if one excluded all capsule (2010- ) and "All Natural" (2011-) cigarette sales (which would have been predominantly cannibalized, rather than net new), Lucky Strike would still have grown 12% between 2007 and 2012, five times faster than the industry overall and eight times British American Tobacco (the owner of Lucky Strike). He participated in several arctic journeys (including a 1000-mile dogsled trip across Greenland), starred in an Oscar-winning film, wrote more than a dozen books (novels and nonfiction, including his Famous Book of the Eskimos), had a peg leg (he lost his leg to frostbite in 1926; he amputated his gangrenous toes himself), was involved in the Danish resistance against Germany, was imprisoned and sentenced to death by the Nazis before escaping to Sweden, studied to be a doctor at university, his first wife was Inuit and his second was a Danish margarine heiress, became friends with Jean Harlow and Mae West, once escaped from a blizzard shelter by cutting his way out of it with a knife fashioned from his own feces, and, last but certainly not least, won $64,000 on The $64,000 Question.
Furthermore, any region with the right climate for growing maples would be able to start up maple "farms". The following evening, Friday November 13, the “Cotton Pickers Ball” shall be held at 7:00pm, in da’ House of Khafre, located at 300 Main Street, Indianola.
Meanwhile, the extended period of cooling by almost 0.3oC from 1880 to 1910 has never been explained by conventional climate science. Second, I stake whatever journalistic integrity I have upon the statement that I didn't Photoshop any of this, and that it happened just as I say it did. They are actually just things that, like, fit the world of the movie and then we kind of wrote them to the film. We don't really know why Newton decided there were two distinct types of purple, but we do know he thought there should be seven fundamental colors. Vince really did some extraordinary things, like the scene where he's supposed to be drunk and he jumps up on the table. A file would represent stored documents - book reports, letters, legal briefs and so forth. They also had strong opinions about how our software should work, which in hindsight were almost all good ideas. Not buying things or solidifying myself or trying to make my house bigger, or trying to show people how many Louis Vuitton bags I can get, or buying my way to a good seat at the table. One team is already looking for radioactive elements, such as nickel, that theories predict form in such supernova, says Shri Kulkarni, an astronomer at California Institute of Technology. You don't put your anniversary on a calendar, because it means you're a bad person who doesn't care. A spot in the Hoh Rainforest in Washington is one, as are places in Grasslands National Park in Canada, Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota and Haleakala National Park in Hawaii.
What oil is commonly used by woodturners to give their sculptures a protective, soft-sheen finish? Four years later, steel-helmeted combat teams dashed forward protected by a curtain of artillery shells.
Eventually after he was alone and the coal -- "the one factor that had kept the house from growing in upon me" -- was gone, he threw out the stove to make more room inside. Not race as invoked by his predecessors in electoral politics or in the civil-rights movement, not race as an insistence on tribe or on redress; rather, Obama made his biracial ancestry a metaphor for his ambition to create a broad coalition of support, to rally Americans behind a narrative of moral and political progress.
All are encouraged to attend both events in costume attire worn in the cotton fields, such as “overalls and straw hats, etc.”The 1st Annual Historical Narrative Competition enhances this year’s Symposium. CO2 didn't rise much in that period, but it definitely didn't fall, and yet the temperature declined for 30 years! Again negative.I even detrended both global temperature and AMO nonlinearly (with a "slow" lowess smooth) and repeated the regression, to see whether AMO might at least account for some of the short-term fluctuations (just as ENSO does). However, Tung and Zhou call this anthropogenic warming and claim that it's been steady before and after 1950. Leveraging snowboarding's rebel cred, they modeled its image on skateboarding and aimed it almost entirely at teenagers. You know, he had to do that in front of a lot of people and I feel like they looked at me and they were like, Doug is clearly not being self-conscious. Even the simplest tasks required memorizing the proper intonations, then executing several exacting steps. To see a particular file, you'd move the mouse, which would, in turn, move the cursor to the file you wanted. Some say you must use a saturated fat -- that is, a fat that is solid at room temperature, whether it's animal or vegetable (palm oil, coconut oil, Crisco, lard). Mississippi Delta high school seniors and MVSU students will compete for a trophy and gift card provided by Khafre, Inc and Lost Pizza, Company. You might like to offer that explanation today.After 1940 there is another AMO explicable cooling phase that is always explained away by a magical process involving the increase in light reflecting aerosols. You'd tap a button on the mouse twice, and the contents of the file would appear on the screen: dark on light, just like a piece of paper. Which again suggests that global temperature is partially the cause, even of the short-term fluctuations in AMO, not the other way around.[Emphasis added]Cause precedes effect - and global temperature changes precede the AMO.
It's better to have one way to do things, than have two or more, no matter how much better the new ones are.
Ten years ago, he cowrote and starred in a movie, Masked and Anonymous, that was about his own masked anonymity.
All projects must be delivered to the MVSU Social Sciences office “T” by 5:00pm November 5th, (or call organizers to arrange for pick up). One, the major global cooling in the Southern Hemisphere during the period 1940-1960 takes place in the early part of the period before the aerosol build up, which according to the theory, mostly affected the industrialized Northern Hemisphere. Tung & Zhou in their analysis are removing a significant portion of the global warming from the global warming, artificially decreasing the trends. He is reportedly working on another studio recording, his thirty-sixth, and year after year and night after night he still gets on stage to sing songs unequaled in both their candor and circumspection.


Secondly it magically reverses the cooling trend moment clean air legislation to reduce SO2 emissions is passed, despite the fact that the SO2 emissions have fallen only slowly.That sudden temperature rise, especially in the Northern Hemisphere, corresponds not to aerosol effects but the return of the warming phase of the AMO, a cycle that began in the Southern hemisphere in the 50s. Though famous as a man who won't talk, Dylan is and always has been a man who won't shut up. Some say the additives in Pam leave a residue at high temperatures and pure canola oil is best.
Heckler & Koch pioneered striker fired handgun designs with the HK VP70 and P7 pistols more than 35 years ago and was also the first company to produce polymer frame models. Since 2000 the Southern hemisphere has shown some slowing in cooling followed by the Northern Hemisphere. When Judith Curry made a similar argument regarding 1910-1940, Gavin replied:"Your statement is equivalent to stating that we can't find someone guilty of a crime today because some other cases in the past are still unsolved.
This is exactly the same hemispheric pattern that occurred during the 40s and 50s and again in the period 1880, 1905.
All the evidence is there to explain why there has been a slowing in global warming over the past decade or so, pointing to a return to rapid waming by 2020 at the latest.What I can't understand is, why, if as this analysis shows, the AMO makes no difference to the fact that real global warming is being driven by CO2, and it is clearly accelerating alarmingly, why not tell the full story? It is precisely because we have more information about changes today than we have about changes longer ago that attribution gets easier.

These small, removable wings on the rear of the slide make cocking and manipulating the pistol much easier than other handgun designs.

Local storyteller Helen Sims will pay tribute to “the Spirit of Mama Lula.” Hollandale folk artist Dorothy Hoskins will showcase recent multi-media work on Cotton Pickin’ and Sharecropping in the American South. An innovative leader in design and manufacturing, Heckler & Koch provides technologically advanced firearms, logistical support, training, and specialized services with the highest standards of innovation and reliability to its customer base. Each attribution problem is unique, and while the same techniques can be used , and the same logic applies, the answer, or even whether an answer can be sensibly given depends entirely on the specifics of the case." [Gavin Schmidt]After 1940 there is another AMO explicable cooling phase that is always explained away by a magical process involving the increase in light reflecting aerosols. But as I wrote to a colleague, I just object to Tung and Zhou's assumption that detrending the AMO removes the nonlinear anthropogenic trend, which led them to unknowingly subtract signal after 1950.I also mentioned multidecadal variability in a comment on the webpage associated with the video in this article. Kevin C's response doesn't involve anthropogenic aerosols and suggests that contributions from multidecadal oscillations are small, and so do other analyses. In the original version of this article I also referenced Isaac Held's analyses of internal variability, which are highly recommended.
The University is driven by its commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, service, and research--a commitment resulting in a learner-centered environment that prepares critical thinkers, exceptional communicators, and service-oriented, engaged, and productive citizens.
MVSU is fundamentally committed to positively affecting the quality of life and creating extraordinary educational opportunities for the Mississippi Delta and beyond. KHAFRE, Inc. Honoring the legacy of  “grandmamma-nem” in a university setting gives artistic and academic license to the pursuit of gaining more scholarship and international acceptance, of the contributions and sweat equity made by the people who picked cotton throughout the American South,” said Professor C.Sade Turnipseed, Executive Director of Khafre, Inc. As part of Khafre, Inc’s historic preservation efforts, a permanent marker will be placed on the MVSU campus in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta, and those who worked the repurposed cotton plantation for higher learning, MVSU.The Symposium is free admission. Khafre, Inc is all about building monumental programs that allow reflection, reconnection, and renewal. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
The agency and resistance of these narratives will also reflect on the subtle and continuing impact of cotton on life in the Delta and throughout the South. The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St.

Over two hundred years ago, the Akan Nation (West Africa) established the Adinkra Symbols to visually communicate a system of living for African people to observe and learn.
Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today. They bring clarity and resolve to the question, “What do we (the village) have to do to show support and love for each other and ultimately save ourselves and one another?” The experiences of today’s youth culture demonstrate a fundamental disconnect, to most people of previous generations. The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world. Because, it offers tribute to the “original” mother and her instinctual knowing of the spiritual paths that her children (all children) must take to find their way out of harm's way. Revealed, in this collection of writings are a wonderful array of short stories, poems and proverbs that present a familial insight born by the great liberator of liberators, Harriet Tubman!

Born in a cabin on a cotton plantation outside Berclair, Mississippi in 1925, his entire life, much like the lives of so many others from the Mississippi Delta, was spent in service to others. Unfortunately, for most of his contemporaries (colleagues, family of friends) they never received the accolades, appreciation, or respect for their life-long work as cotton-pickers in the American South. David Matthews, MS Congressman Bennie Thompson, MS Senator Thad Cochran, National Parks Director Dr Jon Jarvis, Mr. Theodore Turnipseed, Sr., and millions of others understand the importance of sharing, and erecting a statue and National Park dedicated to the countless field workers of the American South. Though unrecognized and unappreciated, these people worked from sun up to sun down tilling, planting, chopping, picking and spinning cotton, in the blazing hot sun … This and many other horrifying conditions of the historic Mississippi Delta evoked the music we call “the Blues.”On May 21, 2014, during the last year of his life Mr. King accepted our call to become the “Honorary Chair” of Khafre, Inc, a Mississippi-based 501(3) not-for-profit organization. Maya Angelou as the Honorary Chair of the Cotton Pickers of America and the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project.
The plan is to build a thirty-foot high monument on twenty acres of cotton land along Highway 61, just outside the historic Black town Mound Bayou, MS. This is a historically rare opportunity to transform many lives in the Delta and engage conversations about race and social inequities in America. Sade Turnipseed is the Executive Director of Khafre, Inc and teaches American History at Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, the birthplace of Mr.
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilts Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. No one has ever “officially” said “thank you” to the people in the American South, who literally tilled the way to the economic greatness for many countries and regions around the world. Somewhere along the way the respect and honor for their hard-earned sweat-equity investment in the wealth of others was lost and buried in the bloodstained, tear-soaked soils of the American South. Something “monumental,” needs to happen…like a National Park named the “Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center” along the Blues Highway 61.
Once the Monument is installed, the organizers’ plan is to turn it over to the federal government for the protection and honor that only this country can provide. It shall serve as a permanent reminder and ever-present sign of respect for those whose hope for a brighter day wore thin, while working from kin to kain’t (can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night).The world must be reminded of the work ethic held by the people in the South…in most instances it was an honorable legacy … the tragedy is they were never properly compensated, nor thanked. King, (aka: The King of the Blues) will join the effort to build a National Monument in the Mississippi Delta. King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries. The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved. The Cotton Pickers Monument Complex would not only help heal wounds that have festered for decades, but would also help to empower the generations of family members who have been negatively impacted by this unfortunate era in American history. This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta.
They have helped to catapult Khafre into numerous projects, which are all connected to the vision and mission of this value-driven and movement-oriented organization that is designed to provide historical, health related, and cultural education and outreach to the communities of the Mississippi Delta.
Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr. We have also received Congressional acknowledgment and endorsement from United States Congressmen, Bennie Thompson and Danny Davis, official endorsements from United States Senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, and expressed support from Dr John Jarvis, National Parks Director. Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project. We are now ready to raise the $26 million dollars to make the Cotton Pickers Monument complex a reality. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming your partnership in the building of this long overdue and much needed monument.It is time!Most sincerely,C.
The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C.
Turnipseed’s theory that perceptions of sharecropping, tenant farming, etc, will be altered in ways that are beneficial to the legacy of the American South when the memory of elders are shared. The monument site is envisioned to become a National Park; and thereby “the place” for memory and community sharing in the Mississippi Delta, for educational, economic development, and international tourism purposes.
King and former honorary chair Dr Maya Angelou who are determined to improve the legacy and social-economic status of Mississippi Delta residents.
The purpose of the organization is to provide educational, lifestyle and cultural programs, build monuments and memorials to honor, celebrate, and recognize the rich and complex history of the Mississippi Delta and to positively impact the quality of life of those living in the Delta, especially the disproportionately poor African American community. There is no documented official acknowledgment of the people who tilled the path to America’s greatness. Somewhere along the way buried in the tear-soaked soils of the American South, the respect and honor for their hard-earned investment was lost. The Cotton Pickers of America Monument, Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and Cotton Kingdom Trail make the case for building a National Park that offers a small token of appreciation for their tireless uncompensated work. Sade Turnipseed is the founder of Khafre, Inc., which has developed the Cotton Pickers of America Monument, the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and the Cotton Kingdom Historical Trail, among many other projects. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola and the former cultural arts director for the Mississippi Action for Community Education--MACE (producers of the MS Delta Blues and Heritage Festival) in Greenville. Turnipseed is the recipient of several community service and arts advocacy awards, and she was an independent candidate for mayor of the city of Indianola in 2013. For the past eight years Turnipseed was the host of “Delta Renaissance,” a cultural arts talk show focusing on the arts, education, and political issues in the Mississippi Delta.
Winter Building Wednesday, June 18: Former Secretary of State Dick Molpus talks about his experience during the Philadelphia civil rights murders of 1964. Wednesday, July 2: Filmmaker Wilma Mosley-Clopton will show and discuss her new film, "Did Johnny Come Marching Home?" about people of African descent who fought to free themselves in the Civil War.
Wednesday, September 25: Author Robert Blade will talk about his book, "Tupelo Man," a biography of George McLean. I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives. This point should not be lost on the fact that many of those injustices happened here, in Indianola, Mississippi, to some amazingly strong and resilient individuals like Fannie Lou Hamer and all those who came before her. But, I can’t help but wonder why the White community isn’t reciprocating and showing the same confidence and trust in racial relations?As Smith indicates, the incumbent received “between 32 and 37% of the votes in the three wards with large Black majorities, despite going up against two black opponents, with strong followings.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree. When we examine the voter polls in the wards that are predominately African American, reflected is a general evenness for all candidates, be they Black or White. The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community.
I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change. With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that! Surely, it cannot be left up to one segment of the community, and not the other.I truly wish Smith had stressed this very critical point, instead of throwing shade on the outcome of a campaign I have yet to wage. And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial. But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote.
And to also trust that the leaders of this community will look out for their best interest, politically, economically and socially.
After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town. And, I have never believed it was necessary to wait until political season to demonstrate my commitment to the people in my community.
If, by chance I am truly embraced by all members of all wards of this city, I believe people will witness an amazing transformation in a relatively short period of time. It’s “almost” like magic…I predict things will begin to unfold in a substantive way like the neighborhoods will brighten, crime decreases and the impoverished mindset disappears. And I am passionate enough to find the tools to help remedy the concerns that create stagnation and distrust. Please remember, we are a people who come from a very long tradition of women who made a way out of no way.My overall ambition and hope for this city is to develop a strategic plan that enables a steady stream of culturally enriched projects that insures economic development for the future growth and safety in this city. So programs that not only engage everyone, but present real opportunities for career enhancements and social activities are critical. King Museum that I visualized and administered) Thanks Carver Randle, Sr for that wonderful quote. I just wish he read my bio, or googled me, before publishing doubts about my abilities for success. For the past three years, I have been sitting relatively quietly completing the doctorate in history. Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. I look forward to being a significant force in this community, by helping the White community too recognize the benefits of building relationships that they can trust in leadership positions.
We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success. Also, please be sure to come to this year's event in your overalls, or cotton pickin' clothes. The event is the impetus that gave rise to the “Remigration Home from Chicago to Mississippi” cultural movement organized by music promoters Gus Redmond and Robert Terrell.
Legendary blues and gospel performers Otis Clay, Syl Johnson and Marshal Thompson (founder and lead singer of the ChiLites); along with promoter Gus Redmond will lead the way back home to Mississippi in an effort to support the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project in the historical Cotton Kingdom AKA the Mississippi Delta. Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr. The discussions and historical presentations will reflect cutting-edge research, innovative practices and foundational values. Additionally, two noted scholars from Mali’s Cotton Manufacturing and Distribution will present via Skype.MVSU participants in the program include Dr. John Jones, interim provost.As part of the celebration, Khafre plans to erect a permanent marker on the site in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta and in commemoration of the significance of this historical event. This will be a day of stimulating discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. The two-day event concludes with a good-old-fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball,” on October 18, 2013. This year Khafre, Inc in conjunction with Mississippi Valley State University shall organize the USA’s premier interdisciplinary professional meeting on cotton, sharecropping, and its cultural significance.
The deadline is September 6, 2013.Plan to join us in Itta Bena, Mississippi!This is your chance to catch up with old friends and colleagues at The Valley, make important new contacts, discuss the latest in cultural management, stay current with research findings in the historic preservation field, and connect with people who share your core values. We invite all community-based experts in any field to become a part of the challenge to address issues of: unemployment, entrepreneurship, illiteracy, poor self-esteem, teen pregnancy, obesity, hopelessness, communication skills, journalism and creative writing, etc. Situated on the bayou waterfront at 103 and 105 Main Street, in historic downtown Indianola, da' House is the place where folks come together in the spirit of unity and love for Mississippi Delta culture, particularly its blues, spirituals and teacakes! On the historical Wall of Fame are signatures by musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Nigeria, Norway, Belguim, China, Japan, France, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire and Mississippi, of course. Beginning Friday, June 1, 2012, at 7 pm, the folks at da' House will be carrying on in grand teacake style, until Sunday June 3rd, around midnight. Celebrating da love that is shared all around the world for da Delta music, art and culture. The 2nd Anniversary Celebration is dedicated to Deltas own David Honeyboy Edward, David Lee Durham, David Thompson and Mississippi Slim.
These legendary bluesmen have recently joined the ancestors and will be honored by several local artists and civic leaders: Mickey Rogers, Dr. These artists and many others will perform on da historical Front Porch stage where the legendary bluesman Sam Chatmons music room door is gracefully hinged. The door, the traditional quilts, the African art, the sweet smell of Soul Food and the Delta cotton provide a rural sophistication and ambiance that is reminicient of the culture and folk art once owned and coveted by grandmamma-nem.
Indeed, it is "The home for artful giving, music and songs," as Chicago-based Blues promoter Lynn Orman Weiss described da' House on her most recent visit to the Delta.
And, since da' House is located at the epicenter of the Cotton Kingdom, visitors can expect that authentic soothing, and often times healing, Mississippi Delta experience to be dosed up in abundantly royal fashion, every time they come to da' House! Co-owners Robert Terrell and C.Sade Turnipseed extend a personal and heartfelt invitation for everyone to come on out to da House and help celebrate two-years of Delta art, music and culture.
She is also the first African-American female president to lead a Mississippi public university. Since assuming her position on January 1, 2009, she has launched The Valley Renaissance, the institutions five-year strategic plan, which is pictorially depicted by the African Adinkra symbol of a Sankofa a bird that flies with his head facingbackwards as he advances forward without getting off track. Grammy-winning blues musician David "Honeyboy" Edwards, believed to be the oldest surviving Delta bluesman and whose roots stretched back to blues legend Robert Johnson, died early Monday, Aug.
Maya Angelou agreed to graciously lend her name to the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project that is in development, in the Mississippi Delta.
C.Sade Turnipseed, Founder of the Monument project and Executive Director of Khafre, Inc, recently made the announcement in a community meeting held at da House of Khafre, in Indianola.
Our teams collective effort honors the sacrifices made by millions of Americans and purposefully gives dignity back to the legacy of those who spent their entire lives working, tirelessly to build this country.Dr. Smith Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University, joins a long and growing list of American citizens, who have also expressed the desire to support this project and demonstrate their respect and gratitude to every man, woman and child that picked cotton and were never thanked, nor properly compensated as enslaved workers or as sharecroppers, throughout the American south.The Khafre, Inc team is composed of a governing Board of Directors, a Steering Committee, a Board of Advisors and several political and community leaders that include faculty members from the History Department at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). The governing Board selected world-renowned monument designer, Ed Dwight, to develop the thirty-foot statue and sculptural park.
It offers educational workshops, seminars and conferences for the entire community that celebrate Mississippis culture and its contributions to world history, including music, cuisine, writing, andotherartistic expressions. Turnipseed is also the host of Delta Renaissance, the number one cultural arts television talk show in the Delta, which airs weekly on WABG-TV, WABG-Radio and Delta Fox-10 television networks.Plans are also underway to incorporate the completed work into the National Parks Services, to insure prosperity and proper maintenance of the Monument.
To help the Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center be included as part of the National Parks System, please sign the online petition. To have name(s) of family members included in the Monument, download a Legacy Brick application; both petition and application are available on the Khafre, Inc. Sato returns to the Front Porch Stage solo, on Sunday March 6th, at 6pm, to kick off the Cultural Competency workshop series.
These are on-going cultural appreciation classes presented for the first time in the Delta, by Khafre, Inc (a Mississippi-based non-profit organization).Sato, who was born and raised in Japan, will introduce to American audiences his interpretation of Mississippi Delta Blues and perform on one of his traditional instruments called a Samisen.
