Pencils 1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

The world is full of problems-health problems, social problems, money
problems,etc. I mean there’s even problems with children in school.
That’s why African American Dyke Robinson comes in. He created
this toy to address inappropriate behaviors in the classroom
for school age children. Bad classroom behavior are the main causes
why classroom instruction does not occur. His goal is to make his product
ready and available to every child on the planet. He wants
them all to have a copy of the Digibots CLassroom Adventure series.

He includes a Digibot Teacher in the series, along with
students: Kelsey, Shelby, Lisa, Lee, Hong, and Jason. This world
changing concept addresses problems in the classroom such as:
cheating, name-calling,disturbing other’s property, speaking
without raising your hands, wandering around the classroom,
tardiness, turning attention away from the teacher, fighting
wild laughter, sharing, and inappropriate tasks.

Digibots was designed with schools, churches,
daycares, home school facilities and/ or parents, grandparents,
and people trying to take charge in a learning enviornment.
Children 4-8 year old age range and different backgrounds
really love the stories because they consist of creative
thinking, discussion and participation. In addition to that,
this book is colorful and the 7 characters are placed throughout
the stories to keep the child’s attention. Also, the series has
a behavioral curriculum that can be used in grades K-3,
which gives children additional information that is needed
during the learning process.

Robinson, who is the founder and creater of the
product, has a Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling
and is highly dedicated to helping children function
properly in the classroom environment.Robinson says he
believes that Digibots will one day change the classroom
enviornment for all children, on the world stage. “Kids just
love the Digibots” he says.

I mean this sounds like a great invention. Have you heard
of it before today? This reminds me of my quote, if you’ve
got a plan, put it into motion.

Albert White, African American builder who built Western Michigan University!

BRICKS//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Do you know of any black builders off the top of your head?
Can you scan your brain for one? Well, Albert White was an African
American building contractor.

He and his men worked together to build a number of well
known structures in Kalamazoo history. Mr. White and
his workers built an addition to the original Borgess
Hospital. At that time it was in a house on Portage
Street. He also constructed the 3rd Kalamazoo Central
High School in 1898. He supervised the masonry work in
the building of the Administration Building East Hall,
which was the first building of the original campus of
Western Michigan University. Western Michigan University
was built in 1905 and still stands.

He moved to Kalamazoo and began working for a mason. He
begged his employer to teach him the trade but was initially
turned down. His employer changed his mind after White offered to
work for free for several months in exchange for learning the trade.
This agreement eventually turned into an apprenticeship that lasted
for seven years, followed by 2 years of working as a journeyman.

Albert White was 25 years of age when he started his own
construction contracting business. Over the next 30 years he would
be involved in many vital projects, including the building the 3rd
Kalamazoo Central High school, additions ot the Kalamazoo Paper Mill,
Plainwell High School, and the first Borgess Hospital on Portage Street.

This man was pretty resourceful and skilled. It goes to show you
that it takes sacrifice in order to get somewhere in life. Thus,
I produce this quote. Work hard so you can have it better later.

William Henry Lane created American tap dance from blending African rhythms and Irish jig and reel!

 Tap Shoes//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

There’s so many types of dances. Can you count them all? I mean

every single one. I love to dance freestyle to Rihanna’s music.

I swear she have some of the best remixes and original songs

I’ve ever heard. Her music inspires me to dance the days away.

Enough about that. The reason I’m writing is to tell the story of

a Black man who is influential in the creation of American

tap dance.

Lane developed a unique way of using his body as a

musical instrument, combining African derived syncopated

rhythms with movements of the Irish jig and reel. He was free

born in Providence, Rhode Island around 1825. Lane started

to learn the Irish jig and reel from Uncle Jim Lowe, a dance

hall and saloon performer in New York City, New York.

By the age of ten, Lane was performing in Paradise Square

in the Five Points District of New York, where a heavy concentration

of African AMerican and Irish populations were side by side. The

vernacular dance forms of both of these ethnic group intermingled,

providing Lane opportunity to get the different rhythmic and movement

foundations that facilitated the development of his style of dance.

Lance has an original use of different areas of his feet to

create rhythms, keep time, and  improvise complex syncopated

rhythms. This was revolutionary for the 1840s. He used his heels

to make the deeper tones of the bass drum, and balls of his feet to

layer, softer higher sounds. And to keep with his African oral traditions,

Lane included singing and laughter into his performances. This

added another layer to his rhythmic creations.
 

  The combining of the rhythm, footwork, improvisation

and vocals, Lane formed a blended style of African dance and British

Isles folk dance still seen today. Students studying tap in the

21st century can give credit to the styles they learn from Lane.

This man I must say is like a human instrument. What a way to stand out!

I just had to give this man credit. He is better than ordinary, he is

extraordinary. We need more people like him. By the way, did you know

dancers and choreographers make 16.85 per hour according to the
bureau of labor statisitics? (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/entertainment-and-
sports/dancers-and-choreographers.htm)

African American Jemiah Battle Inventor creates Heart Detection Bracelet to Prevent Heart Attacks!

 

What is one of the top thing we humans must look out for? Okay,

take a guess. If you guesses health, you would be right.

Based on AMerican Heart Association’s findings, heart disease

is the Number 1 killer for all Americans and stroke is also the main

cause of death. The statistics for African Americans are more serious with

44% OF MEN AND 48% OF WOMEN having some form of

cardiovascular disease. Jemiah Battle states” Something had to be done. I have

suffered many losses with family members and friends, decided it was

time to get get busy and invent the life E Bracelet, which saves lives in

real time and promote self care.

Battle, author, transformational emotional life coach and CEO

of VK3 Innovations, has been working diligently to change the world with

his emotional fitness workshops.  Battle says “MY company specializes in

bringing  life changing products and innovations of the market in a bid

to improve, safeguard, and enhance one’s health and mental well being through

self care. The goal is to create awareness, through information, about heart

disease in the black community: and how minorities, especially women, are at

high risk or stroke or heart attack through education. I think the Life E- Bracelet

can help save many lives, brings mindfulness to stress, emotional health, and

wellness.”

He most recently received a patent for the first of its kind. The Life E

Bracelet,the innovative bracelet provides a wristband for monitoring

vital signs to help alert users to the risk of an oncoming heart attack. This

bracelet/wristbandincludes a digital display monitor and various sensors to

observe your blood pressure, pulse, stress, and other heart related readings.

One of the main features of this design is the ability for the band to

light up in various colors to show different levels of heart rate/blood pressure.

The band  illuminates in red, yellow, green, and blue in order to notify its

user of what to do. The band is able to  let the user know when their blood

pressure is getting to a dangerous level and/ or they are at risk of a heart

attack. The device also has a wireless notification system to alert family or

emergency contacts of a very special situation. The wristband is amazing

because it’s adjustable, in size, to help different individuals.

Get involved please. Your donations support cost of revenue,

research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative,

etc. I shortened this article, but this article is worth reading at its original

site. I love the features of this invention. It is very much needed today.

It is convenient. It will save a life. So go ahead and spread the word.

Go ahead and use it.

William Still helped guide slaves to freedom!

Well, if you’re knowledgeable, you know about the history of black

people in slavery. And yes enduring such painful experiences of slavery

can make anyone flee. Being a slave in itself makes people flee.

Well, this one African American man named William Still was one

of those who helped runwayss get to Freedom’s Land. He had to

smuggle them across the US border to Canada. Bounty hunters could

back then legally abduct former slaves living in the free northern states.

Yet under the protection of the British, Canada provided sanctuary for

fugitive slaves.

William Still put his life on the line to help runaway slaves make

it to  freedom in the years leading up to America’s Civil War. Still was the

director of a complex network of Abolitionists, sympathizers and safe

houses that went from Philadelphia to Southern Ontario. He spent 14 years

helping about 800 former slaves to escape. He even kept meticulous records

of the many escaped slaves who passed through the Philadelphia station.

When the Civil War was over, Still published secret notes he had kept in

diaries during those years. Even today,  there is some of the best evidence

we have of the workings of the Underground Railroad  documented. It tells how the

freedom seekers who used it, where they came from, how they escaped,

and the families they left behind.

Well, he is truly a man with a heart of gold.  I just had to share

this information about him. History means alot more because of him.

He is passionate and his story is savory.
