Chaco Canyon New Mexico Pueblo Native American City

Chaco Culture National Historical Park is a United States National Historical Park hosting the densest and most exceptional concentration of pueblos in the American Southwest. The park is located in northwestern New Mexico, between Albuquerque and Farmington, in a remote canyon cut by the Chaco Wash. Containing the most sweeping collection of ancient ruins north of Mexico, the park preserves one of the United States’ most important pre-Columbian cultural and historical areas.[2]
Between AD 900 and 1150, Chaco Canyon was a major center of culture for the Ancient Pueblo Peoples.[a] Chacoans quarried sandstone blocks and hauled timber from great distances, assembling fifteen major complexes which remained the largest buildings in North America until the 19th century.[2][4] Evidence of archaeoastronomy at Chaco has been proposed, with the “Sun Dagger” petroglyph at Fajada Butte a popular example. Many Chacoan buildings may have been aligned to capture the solar and lunar cycles,[5] requiring generations of astronomical observations and centuries of skillfully coordinated construction.[6] Climate change is thought to have led to the emigration of Chacoans and the eventual abandonment of the canyon, beginning with a fifty-year drought commencing in 1130.[7]
Composing a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the arid and sparsely populated Four Corners region, the Chacoan cultural sites are fragile; fears of erosion caused by tourists have led to the closure of Fajada Butte to the public. The sites are considered sacred ancestral homelands by the Hopi and Pueblo people, who maintain oral accounts of their historical migration from Chaco and their spiritual relationship to the land.[8][9] Though park preservation efforts can conflict with native religious beliefs, tribal representatives work closely with the National Park Service to share their knowledge and respect the heritage of the Chacoan culture.[8]

William Lee Golden – American Vagabond (1986 MCA CD) [Full Album]

(See track list below notes.)

This is the solo album of the Oak Ridge Boy formerly known as Bill Golden! I figured I’d post this album since it was not already here (in its entirety, anyway.) This is from the CD, which is long out of print and getting harder to find.

If you’re expecting some light country pop along the lines of the Oaks, you’re in for a surprise. Golden wanted to delve more into rock and this album reflects that. One of the producers is Booker T. Jones and there is an all-star cast on-hand of names familiar to country and rock fans. Golden’s soon-to-be ex-bandmates put in guest appearances on “Music For My Soul” and “You Turn The Light On”. Golden’s soon-to-be ex-wife, Luetta, can be heard on “Music For My Soul” as well. Interestingly, Golden chose to record his own version of “Come On In (You Did The Best That You Could Do)”, which the guys had just recorded but with Duane Allen on lead.

According to a press release, the “complete project took approx. 2 years” but says that recording ran from 6/15/85 – 1/27/86.
American Vagabond was released in June ’86 and peaked at #53 the first week of August, and was off the chart by the end of the month. As we all know, Golden was out of the Oaks by the following March.

“You Can’t Take It With You” and “Love Is The Only Way Out” were issued as singles and hit #72 and #53, respectively, on the country charts. William Lee performed some of the album’s tracks at Farm Aid that year, with Joe Walsh guesting on guitar.

WHAT IS THE ATHEIST EXPERIENCE?

The Atheist Experience is a weekly call-in television show in Austin, Texas geared at a non-atheist audience. The Atheist Experience is produced by the Atheist Community of Austin.

The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article:
Irish American

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

SUMMARY
=======
Irish Americans (Irish: Gael-Mheiriceánaigh) are an ethnic group comprising Americans who have full or partial ancestry from Ireland, especially those who identify with that ancestry, along with their cultural characteristics. About 33 million Americans — 10.5% of the total population — reported Irish ancestry in the 2013 American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. This compares with a population of 6.7 million on the island of Ireland. Three million people separately identified as Scotch-Irish, whose ancestors were Ulster Scots and Anglo-Irish Protestant Dissenters who emigrated from Ireland to the United States. However, whether the Scotch-Irish should be considered Irish is disputed.

American Eagle – Amazing Natural Bald Eagle Sounds
A bald eagle is an exciting, rare sighting for most Americans! But on this Alaskan island, our national symbol is as common as a beachside seagull. You can find them everywhere!!!lurking above the post office, inspecting the trash, waiting patiently for the local fishing boats to return with the day’s catch, even hanging out in front of the town church. In Unalaska, Alaska, everyone has an eagle story!!

Using North Carolina Cohabitation Records to research your African American ancestors



Views:3695|Rating:4.67|View Time:3:46Minutes|Likes:28|Dislikes:2
Cohabitation records are often overlooked resources in African American genealogical research. You might ask what is a cohabitation record? Simply put, it was not legal for slaves to be married until after emancipation. In order to recognize their unions during slavery as legal, former slaves in North Carolina were required to register their “cohabitation” in the county in which they lived.

Texas A&M Corpus Christi African American Student Finds Apartment Defaced And Threats Of Lynching

ADVISE SHOW MEDIA CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN

The unidentified black woman returned from spring break to find slurs and threats written all around her apartment.

The African American female found threatening racial slurs written all over her apartment.

Corpus Christi Police Chief Floyd Simpson called a sudden news conference Monday to discuss the findings.

He made it very clear that part of the reason for calling the news conference is the number of similar cases involving racism happening across the country right now, including several at other college campuses.

Simpson hoped to bring this case to the public as a way of talking about it and also finding those responsible.

Photos from inside the apartment show an image of a person being hanged and reads “White Power. We’re coming for you”.

Another says, “Die (n-word). Where is your protector? White Power”.

Several of the messages also include misspelled words or bad grammar, not the type of writing expected from a college student.

“I think the community ought to be hurt by this. I think that we all ought to take it very seriously,” said Simpson.

The Islander Village complex on Alameda is gated and appears to have security cameras, but the student who found the messages left town for Spring Break, so it’s unclear exactly when the break-in happened.
