Black Seamen served vital roles!

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

How many black seamen have you heard of? Did you hear of James

Forten? Anyways, Black people have taken on many roles in life. So I try to

think of the roles that black people take the least of. There are

roles that black people take the most of . But I like to highlight

something special about each role that black people do

and how we as black people have shown our brilliance. Moving on.

The Navy recruited both the free and enslave black people

from the start of the Revolutionary War. Many black people were already

experienced sailors that served in British and state navies. Philadelphia’s

free blacks were more likely to serve on privateers than in the

Pennsylvania navy. Black seamen were specifically valued as pilots.

Others took on roles as shipyard carpenters and laborers.

Maryland and Virginia’s navies made extensive use of blacks, even

buying slaves for wartime naval service. Virginia’s state commissioner

noted that it was cheaper to hire blacks than whites and that white

people got exemption from military service by substituting a slave.

In his memoirs, US. Navy Commodore James Barron, who served

as a captain in the Virginia navy during the war, remembered

several black men among the “Courageous patriots who…in justice

to their merits should not be forgotten.

Whatever we do, we do it big” by me.

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.

The Types of Dresses Women Should Have

Pants are cute, but dresses are ultimate. I wear pants to be

comfortable , but dresses to look really really nice. They show off

a woman’s pretty legs.  They look classy in some instances and they

allow you to appreciate the lady-like nature of a woman.

You can look glamorous without all the effort in a black maxi dress. They

are good for an informal date. In this dress, you’ll look great but comfortable.

It looks good with chic gladiator sandals. When the weather gets colder, match

it up with ankle boots and a motorcycle jacket.

A slip dress is another dress women should have. You can match it up

with a strappy pair of sandals. I especially love the look of the slip dress on

the website, which has a sheer lace on the bottom and a little area of sheer

lace on the top.

And what about the sheath dress? It is one of those type of office

dresses. It’s a black dress with a built in belt and its one single color- black.

It looks classy, it’s in style and so nice on the eyes.

Number 4, is the flared dress. It’s yet another black dress with a

ripple type outline at the bottom. This reminds me of a superhero type

of dress. It has such a pritsy type of style.

Fifth, is the lace dress. It’s like a maze in there. The dress’ whole

outline is of lace. It’s long, up to knee length. It goes well with heels of

any color if it’s a black dress.

What a site! what a site! I love a few of the dresses on this site and there’s a

few I don’t care for.But in honor of the beautiful dresses, I wrote this article. The

dresses I highlighted above flatter a woman’s figure. The other dresses, you decide if

you like them or not just like the dresses I like. Which dresses would you wear?

WHich dresses would you not wear? Or would you wear them all?

African Hairstyles-Styles of Yesterday and Today!

First, I want to show much appreciation for the beauty and style of the

black race. Among thinking about such themes, I decided to look

up books that talked about African hairstyles. I then found this

book called “African Hairstyles-Styles of Yesterday and Today.

This book discusses the hairstyles of Black Egyptians. It expressed

that ancient black Africans used beeswax to preserve their

braids and twists. Throughout the book you will also find that Black

Africans were cowrie shells and coins in their hair.

The women in the Bapoto area styled the men’s hair

in cone and mitre shapes. There’s even a presentation of

black people and their African tribes. “African Hairstyles-Styles of

Yesterday and Today” balances the Black African men and Black

African women hairstyles. You wanna see the many ways you can

do cornrows? Check out this book. You get that. You also get a

history of the African hairstyles.Some of the cornrows extend

into a bun, curve at an angle, and have red clay incorporated in it

and animal fat. These fancy African  cornrowed hairstlyes have

some type of curls embodied within them.  One particular

hairstyle show reminds me so much of the pyramids. Their

many hairstyles compliment their African facial features.

Some of their  hairstyles even accompany beads.

I love this book with all my heart. It gives fine details.

Besides the fact that it puts on a display of African hairstyles,

it lists the process of threading. It shows that you can do

a billion more things with African hairstyles than just an

ordinary one. By the way, you’ll notice Caucasians

in this book sporting hairstyles that are originally made

by Black Africans. You might want to purchase or even

borrow this book. Ladies… Gentleman…You’re gonna love it.

The Ford Escape Car gives you control in bad weather and reduces emissions while driving ! (My review of the car)

Hello all. WHat are some features you look for in

a car? It’s not just cutting down on time to get you

to your destination. You want more benefits and the more

benefits the better it sounds. Well, that is important reason why

I just wanted to take the time to promote my

favorite car, the Ford Escape. Oh it’s beautiful and shiny.

It’s worthy of much applaud.

Now, getting into the Ford Escape’s benefits.  The Ford Escape’s

AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ helps

maintain control in rain, ice, or snow. It has auto start stop

technology to reduce emissions during city driving. WHen it

stops, the engine cuts off. It restarts when you step on the

accelarator or move off the brake pedal. With one of it’s features,

you change gears rather quickly. Another of one this car’s features

lets you  know if you are going too fast on a curve or dry or wet pavement,

by slowing you down.

Whoa! I had no idea this beauty had so many vital features. Now,

it gives more meaning to this car. If I had to pick my number

one car, it would be the FORD ESCAPE! I treat it like a valuable person.

I LOVE this car. In addition, I did a tally of how many times I saw this

car.Here are the details:

I did this tally April 20, 2016 before 8am to 7pm. This very

beautiful day I noticed I saw this car 129 times in one day on my

journey Dearborn Heights, Michigan to Detroit, Michigan. I made

sure every time I saw this car I put a line on the paper. This tallying

method is a representation of just how popular this car really is.

How Black men and white men worked on the highway of ALaska together!

photo credit: davidyuweb Fleet Week San Francisco 2016 via photopin (license)

Ofcourse Some white people are quick to dismiss the black man’s talents.

Now if you know black history, you know us black people do it and we

do it better. We do it big. We are the meal, the snack, and the cake with

icing and sprinkles and a nice drink to go with it. We just outdo ourselves.

More black people should help other black people. It’s really a competition

with white people and black people. It’s not black people and black people.

That’s just how it’s set up.

Moving onto the story.  The little people thought that African American

engineers were not skilled and industrious as White people. This is so not true. It was an

experiment done with white men and black men to work on the same

project. They did not want African Americans to work in cold climates.

Black men and white men worked on the same highway. Yet,

it was still segregated. The African American engineers were not

allowed to have bulldozers and other machinery. The 95th Engineer

Regiment, who was the final African American unit transferred to

the highway, had more experience operating equipment. Yet,

the all white people of the 35 regiment was given the machinery.

African Americans were given hand tools. You see how backwards

some people are? But the brilliant and bold African Americans

are so magnificent they can get something done with pure labor.

On October 25, 1953, an African American soldier and

a white bulldozer driving soldier shook hands. This was the

final link of the Alaska Highway! They were photographed

as equals coming together to beat the Axis Powers.

It was now 1942, when the highway was completed.

The engineers who had labored so hard and were transferred to

other arenas in the war, including the South Pacific

and Europe. There, thirty men died during the construction

of the highway. Memorials for the veterans are spread

throughout the highway, including the Black Veterans

Memorial Bridge, which came into effect in 1993.

Thus, it was truly hard work to work on this project.

This is just one instance of black people and white people

working together.
