Beasty Is Back——The lost souls of ‘Black” Folks

“”…In a traditional Yoruba village everyone your grandfather’s age is called Babagba meaning grandfather and everyone your grandmother’s age is called Iyaba meaning grandmother. Everyone your father’s age is called Baba meaning father and everyone your mother’s age is called Iya meaning mother. The words Babagba, Iyagba, Baba and Iya are considered titles of family relationships and in traditional Yoruba it is considered rude to call someone older than you by their name. You only call someone younger than yourself by their name. When you call someone grandfather, grandmother, father, or mother you are giving them permission to function as father and mother. This means everyone in the village you identify as a family elder will bless you and be critical in an effort to support your personal growth. In the Yoruba language there are no words for aunt, uncle, and cousin.As a diviner one of the most common and most difficult problems I encounter is the wound caused by a fatherless child. This wound is nonexistent in a traditional Yoruba village because there is no such thing as a parentless child. Everyone receives the blessing of support from mentors as part of an extended family’.”” – Kenny Roosevelt

Africans in science…a new jack swing!

From the late 1980’s to the early 1990’s Teddy Riley and Bernard Belle, hit up the dull and repetitive “pop” music scene with an explosive mix of old school jazz, smooth jazz, funk and rap (when it was good)  and R&B. The new jack swing style developed as many previous music styles did, by combining elements of older styles with newer sensibilities. It used R&B style vocals sung over hip hop and dance-pop style influenced instrumentation. The sound of new jack swing comes from the hip hop “swing” beats created by drum machine, and hardware samplers, which was popular during the golden age of hip hop, with contemporary R&B style singing. Like all things African, the life essence of African sensibility is to have a symbiotic co-existence between art, artistic expressions and reality. This is why African music can never die because no savage breast can go for long without the beat of the heart…which is our music.

Wrecks-N-Effect – New Jack Swing

They say that art imitates life, therefore the life science or the science of life is as intricate to African essence and existence as any other discipline. It is mot accepted by the doers of Isfet that denying the African origin and influence in what is described as modern science is a waste of time and breath and the y just choose to co opt it, pay us to create for them, while continuing to fool the idiotic sheeples that Yurugu is and has been the creator of “science”. Unlike the New Jack Swing, the African presence in modern science is not a NEW phenomena, even while it infuses old school essence with newer efforts to produce a wholly unique, distinctive and thoroughly refreshing presentation of a previously boring, white bread and flavorless entity.

At the Maker Faire Africa in Lagos, Nigeria, four teenage girls came up with a rather remarkable invention: urine-powered generator. These young  Nigerian geniuses are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15), who with the help and encouragement of mentors that actually provide the kind of teaching that is lacking in western (white society) has produced the worlds first Urine-Powered Generator, which uses 1 Liter of urine which produces up to  6 hours of electricity.

The system works like this:

– Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
– The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
– The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
– This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

Respects to by Anne Mireille Nzouankeu, Yaoundé for bringin this story to the world.

In Cameroon a young engineer has built the first full touch screen medical tablet,  that will soon save African lives. However at the time of the braking story, he was seeking funding to mass-produce the device.   In a country that has only 30 heart surgeons for more than 20 million people, the dream of Arthur Zang, a 24-year-old Cameroonian engineer, is to facilitate the treatment of patients with a heart disease across Cameroon.

Save lives
In 2010, he created a digital tablet known as Cardiopad: “It’s the first fully touch screen medical tablet made in Cameroon and in Africa. It’s an invention that could save numerous human lives”, explains Arthur Zang. In fact, Cameroon’s thirty heart specialists are all based in either Douala or Yaoundé, the country’s economic and political capitals. Heart patients often have to travel across the country for a consultation. Appointments sometimes must be made months in advance, leading to death of some patients.

Hassle of travelling
The Cardiopad solves this problem by enabling medical examinations to be performed remotely and the results transmitted electronically, saving patients the hassle of having to travel to the city.

Arthur Zang explains that the Cardiopad is above all a scientific project. He started his research three years ago and carried out several scientific tests that were validated by the Cameroonian scientific community. “The reliability of the Cardiopad is 97.5%”, he says.

Distance consultation
In practice, the Cardiopad is a device that can perform tests such as the electrocardiogram (ECG). The medical tablet also makes it possible to wirelessly send the results of the tests from remote locations to the specialist who will then interpret them.

Arthur Zang<br>&copy;

“The tablet is used as a classical electrocardiograph device: electrodes are placed on the patient and connected to a module that, in turn, connects to the tablet. When a medical examination is performed on a patient in a remote village, for example, the results are transmitted from the nurse’s tablet to that of the doctor who then interprets them.

Digitalised and transmitted
Software built into the device allow the doctor to give computer assisted diagnosis”, explains the young engineer.

Pointing out the differences between the Cardiopad and the classical electrocardiograph, Arthur Zang explains: “The Cardiopad has more functions. With the classical electrocardiograph, the results were usually printed on paper and handed to the cardiologist for interpretation.

It wasn’t possible to send or save the results electronically. With the Cardiopad, the results are digitalised and transmitted. There is no need to print them, the heart surgeon can interpret them, even remotely, from his tablet and then send the diagnosis and prescribed treatment”

“The Cardiopad will cut down the cost of examination. We intend to sell the device for 1500 euros, while the current price for an electrocardiograph device is 3800 euros. If hospitals purchase the device at a low price, they will be able to lower the prices of medical examinations”, Arthur Zang hopes.


However, there is still the issue of energy, as many of the country’s remote regions do not have access to electricity. “The Cardiopad is equipped with a battery that can independently power the machine for more than seven hours”, the engineer assures. He further explains that a prototype and sample of device is already available. “We are currently producing the first units of the device which will be available for hospitals before July”, says the young engineer who is still looking for funding to mass-produce the Cardiopad. “Besides the funding, I am also looking to start a company to help improve the medical care system in Cameroon”, he concludes.

Note: This year he has completed around 30 of them and still hopes to get funding to produce more.

Saheed Adepoju

Nigeria’s Saheed Adepoju is a young man with big dreams. He is the inventor of the Inye, a tablet computer designed for the African market. According to the 29-year-old entrepreneur, his machine’s key selling point is its price – $350 (£225) opposed to around $700 for an iPad. He believes that, because of this, there is a big market for it in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa, particularly among students. The Inye is a mobile internet device. It gives you access to the internet; it allows you to play media files and watch movies”

Saheed Adepoju is also hoping to sell his tablet – which runs on the Google Android operating system – to the Nigerian government and plans to have at least one computer in each local government area. What we have is an 8-inch device, a device that is half-way between a laptop and a mobile phone,” he said in an interview. “You have the standard software applications that come pre-installed and then you have the ones that we are working with various local developers to bundle on,” he added.Among those local apps there is one designed to raise awareness about HIV and others related to water and sanitation.

“We work with local developers that have expertise in particular areas so that we don’t end up doing so much work and we just have a collaborative way of doing things together,” he said.

short biography:

  • Age: 29
  • Degree in Maths and computer science, The Federal University of Technology, Minna, Nigeria, 2005
  • Advanced Computing, Bournemouth University, UK, 2008
  • Worked briefly for a consulting firm
  • Cofounded Encipher Group with Anibe Agamah
  • Starting capital: $60,000
  • The Encipher Inye was released in 2010
  • Inye means One in Igala, a language in Nigeria

After doing a first degree in maths and computer science in Nigeria, he completed another one in advanced computing by research at Bournemouth University, in the United Kingdom.

Upon graduation in 2009, he returned to his home country and started working for a consulting firm.

“Within eight months I got fired, primarily because of differences in approach to doing business. In the middle of all this, the Apple iPad launched, back in January of 2010, which inspired us to actually look to build such [a] product within the African marketplace,” . He said that, with that goal in mind, he borrowed money from friends and family, raising a total of about $60,000. According to him, all of that went on the devices and the logistics – there was no budget for marketing, so early advertising was “word of mouth” on social media.

The first 100 units of the Inye, which means One in Nigeria’s Igala language, were built in China and, after receiving feedback from its users, a second version was launched in May 2011. Encipher Group, the company he co-founded with web developer Anibe Agamah, also offers customized IT services and products, including cloud computing, which are mostly based on open technology to keep costs down.

Fortunately the African genius is not only regulated to the hard sciences but to everyday activities, which is what the mind’s creative process was all about.

At the end of the day, as they say you can’t keep a good man down. Or in this case you can kill a revolutionary, but you can’t kill a revolution. This is the African revolution of the 21st century. Not ask kissing for hand outs or sitting down and waiting for the government to steal your hard earned wages then give you pittance in return. Now if more scientific would leave NASA, and the other corporation and build viable, sustainable products that truly enhances the lives of every one on the planet instead of causing wars to profit the rich. Maybe…just maybe we may bot end up as casualties when the day of reckoning come for the planet.


Nat Turner: A Troublesome Property

Below is an audio book reading of compilations,  from the memories of Nat Turner’s contemporaries, by Sharon Ewell Foster. The truth has been buried more than one hundred years…

Leading a small army of slaves, Nat Turner was a man born with a mission: to set the captives free. When words failed, he ignited an uprising that left over fifty whites dead. In the predawn hours of August 22, 1831, Nat Turner stormed into history with a Bible in one hand, brandishing a sword in the other. His rebellion shined a national spotlight on slavery and the state of Virginia and divided a nation’s trust. Turner himself became a lightning rod for abolitionists like Harriet Beecher Stowe and a terror and secret shame for slave owners.

In The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part 1: The Witnesses, Nat Turner’s story is revealed through the eyes and minds of slaves and masters, friends and foes. In their words is the truth of the mystery and conspiracy of Nat Turner’s life, death, and confession. The Resurrection of Nat Turner spans more than sixty years, sweeping from the majestic highlands of Ethiopia to the towns of Cross Keys and Jerusalem in Southampton County. Using extensive research, Sharon Ewell Foster breaks hallowed ground in this epic novel, revealing long-buried secrets about this tragic hero.

“The Resurrection of Nat Turner, Part2: The Witnesses” by Sharon Ewell Foster

Contrast this with the assassination of Nat Turner by William Styron and his bottom bitch and homosexual traitor, James Baldwin that won the 1967 Pulitzer Prize for Styron and not his bottom bitch. A Pulitzer prize! In the book, and i confess, I have only heard excerpts  these two faggots portrayed Nat Turner has an effeminate character who was open to a homosexual encounter. I say faggot because this twisting of a great man is intolerable and deliberately positioned to remove the masculinity from what African manhood is supposed to be. Not fucking Lil Wayne or 50 cents or any of those nick nacks they force on us as examples of manhood. So if you’all don;t like my use of that word… fuck off! This is why we have to tell our own story, because our oppressors will never tell the tale that benefit us.

This is the review from Amazon: ”

The Confessions of Nat Turner is narrated by Nat himself as he lingers in jail through the cold autumnal days before his execution. The compelling story ranges over the whole of Nat’s Life, reaching its inevitable and shattering climax that bloody day in August. 

The Confessions of Nat Turner is not only a masterpiece of storytelling; is also reveals in unforgettable human terms the agonizing essence of Negro slavery. Through the mind of a slave, Willie Styron has re-created a catastrophic event, and dramatized the intermingled miseries, frustrations–and hopes–which caused this extraordinary black man to rise up out of the early mists of our history and strike down those who held his people in bondage.

What Yurugu deliberately remove from the narrative was (a) there was an original book called the confession of Nat Turner by Thomas R. Gray in 1831

Perhaps the most feared, despised and greatest enslaved African hero outside of Africa, who didn’t just talk about liberation but walked the walk.
