TIME WRITERS: OUR GRANDMOTHERS LOST HISTORY
The City of the Sun, located midcontinent near current day St. Louis, MO, US, is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and commonly identified as Cahokia. This site covers an area of approximately 14 kilometers in size, containing more than 120 earthen mounds and the largest pre Columbian structure on the northern continent. An influx of Eurasian travelers infiltrated an established trade route(s), altering the lifeways of the people that resided at the City of the Sun around 1000 CE; leading research to question changes that appear within geological evidence that have yet to be clearly defined. Communities seem to have suddenly increased in size, due to success in maize production, division of labor, and hierarchy. This includes the ritualization of the morning star, a prominent recurring theme at this location. The Mississippi culture seems to peak between 1050 to 1400 CE exposing a new biologically distinct culture that began to flourish.
The Great Law
The original physical representation of the oral tradition of peace treaties dates to important treaties prepared woven into the tapestry or fabric of time back millennium by the aboriginal culture, at the end of the 12 century, at Onondaga. The Peacemaker visited the warring nations. This is estimated to have occurred around the year 1060 CE (Treuer, 2012). The five nations of the Haudenosaunee confederacy in the early 18 century, proved to be one of the oldest participatory democracies on this sphere, and provides the important format for those who developed the US Constitution.
Agnosia Definition: Fundamentally defined as a disorder of recognition and the inability to recognize the meaning of information received via the sensory system, from the external environment to the brain. The inability to recognize sensory stimuli. Agnosia presents as a deficit of one particular sensory channel, such as visual, auditory, or tactile. A neurological disorder, Agnosia is the not having the ability to recognize common objects like an orange or a key, people, aromas, or sound though other senses function normally to visual or auditory stimuli. Agnosia is not an amnesia or memory loss, deficit.
Wastelanding the Peach
People and land(s) are often rendered exploitable for extraction of natural resources. Framing and priming, the words chosen when conveying a message truthful or otherwise. Uranium, the ore, is valuable for nuclear weapons, and the aboriginal people of this territory of the western continent reveal underlying biases capitalists participate in to corporatization of lands and people participate in to conduct a lucrative capitalistic economy. Presented as a brutal military campaign against the Navajo specifically around the time of the US Civil War, this war is often singled out for the slash-and-burn tactics employed, via Sherman’s scorched-earth campaign through the southern part of the continent to win the war.
Tougher Than Leather
Tougher than Leather: Legendary cross between a blaxploitation film and a spaghetti western. Hip-hop group Run DMC must find the drug lord-record company executive who had their friend murdered. The characters collectively encounter stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination within the local dicotomy of Brooklyn in the summer 1986; a critical and objective reflection on cultural tension(s), culture salience, and bias within this snapshot period in American history.
Temporal Lobe Neurological Disorders
Memory disruption is a major complicating feature of disease entities causing temporal lobe involvement: infectious, metabolic, neoplastic, degenerative aetiologies, trauma, and cerebrovascular events all play a role. One of the most common temporal lobe disease(s) is epilepsy, along with cognitive impairment. The problem of memory impairment in temporal lobe epilepsy or TLE. Anatomical abnormalities include alztimers and often extend far outside the temporal lobe, as well as extend beyond memory function, and cognitive impairments. There appear(s) to be a connection between cognitive and anatomical abnormalities, one must understand the anatomical architecture of cognitive impairment and how it relates to epilepsy. Some improvement has been made through anterior temporal lobectomy, with efforts made to predict which subject(s) are at risk of adverse cognitive outcomes from the disorder. Surgery on the lobe is also considered a remedy for some candidate(s). Often hippocampus integrity is the deciding factor.
Alternative Head Injury Protocol, Genetic Testing and Brain Scans
1. Abstract Treatment of head injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and chronic traumatic encephalopathy continues to be an emerging and expanding area of research and development to expound and improve upon interventions. Though new emphasis on developing a personalized restorative approach in TBI novel territory, requires a deeper understanding of how nutrition, physical, mental exercise(s), and genetics impact long-term outcome. Recognized genetic factors play a role in determining risk and impact of brain trauma, recovery, presentation, and restorative post-injury properties and outcomes.
Sadly most humans without controls or the EPA would remove most of the hidden less known, yet vital parts of our biosphere unable to grasp the vastness and complexities of earth’s biodom. “... they are vile little creatures that eat bugs, poop and get caught in pool drains ..” nothing more needs to be said regarding Senator Blowhard, or his opinion of Taricha Granulosa or Scaly Backed Newt. One needs an apprentice in fields one is interested in working within, one must also appreciate or apprentice if one is to speak of the future of a creature posed for extinction. Possibly walk the creature's walk before relinquishing it to the confines of oblivion.
Intro E US 031205 Hunting Party The party settles on the adjacent ridge to a12 and j11; opposite of the mountain, separated by jagged cliffs worn by centuries and erosion. The party is on their mission, gathered together in the crux of a fallen tree. Hunting is the only way to ensure animal protein in this time of confusion. In the wake of the fall of CORP minimally unaffected by genetic modified organisms GMO, compounds that have infused themselves with the modified food supply when ancienne scientists thought they were part of the hunger solution. The nordic wind brushes the beards of the group while toques cover the heads of all, containing the body warmth within. A youth looks through the night tech as a small doe raises her head in efforts to sniff out any intruders in the deep forest. The doe and the rest of the herd are calm, for now. The youth moves the drone sight as she rotates its body SUD, the scent of the pack that stalks the herd of white tail, evades her watch.
Scientific Integrity (SI) “... a global leader in climate science for decades in the US. Unfortunately, progress has slowed…”, the divisiveness begins within the first sentence of this article. Talking down to one's audience may have worked with previous generations but as the Policy Pendulum has been uncovered by the vast majority of an audience, pros and cons in balance, with a conclusion, and a possible solution. John Podesta, Bidisha Bhattacharyyam and Bianca Majumber present novel ideas regarding the new POTUS. The US plans, preeminence on the platform of applied science supporting “climate change mitigation and adaptation decision-making of governments and civilian stakeholders”. Why is this a federal conversation when state to state one could rally a conscious, consistent unity of governing each particular state (p36, O'Lear, 2010).
CITY OF THE SUN: OUR GRANDMOTHERS LOST HISTORY
One of the world’s major river systems in size, habitat diversity and biological productivity is the Mississippi River. Equally important as a commercial waterway and US migration routes for both birds and fish. Aboriginals to the continent long lived along its banks, using the river for sustenance and transportation. When early explorers arrived they used the river to extend exploration into the interior and the northern continent fur traders via portage plied their trade on this waterway as several nations vied for strategic points, at various times historically, along this mighty river has remained a portal or gateway into the continents interior (Dempsey, 2020).
