I have a Powerpoint presentation that I created for a lecture last semester and thought I'd share it with everyone:

This is the first time I uploaded a file so if anyone has problems opening the link, let me know.

Ayana J., is that your site over at OctaviaButler.net? Great-looking site, regardless of who owns it. :)
Comment by Sharon A on August 15, 2011 at 5:40pm
My intro to Ms. Butler was Kindred in a college humanities class.  The instructor was an outside of the box teacher that provided opportunities for students to experience things beyond the norm - and that totally describes Ms. Butler's writings.  Ms. Butler's writing style was unlike any other I had read and I was totally immersed in the story from the first line.  Thanks for creating this thread.  She is owed this and more for her contributions to science fiction - and especially to Black Science Fiction!

This comment is so random, but Octavia E. Butler is one of those authors that hold so much symbolic value to me--beyond their writing--that I find that I am a little more joyful, feel a little more possible whenever I see her name.   It's like seeing or smelling chocolate, you already know it's going to be good ;-)  All that's to say, thanks Mark for creating this new group.

This is a great site. Octavia Butler did an interview with NPR back in 2001. I've kept it on my bookmarks and thought I'd share it with you:

A group of researchers recently observed a mysterious infrared emission coming from near a pulsar in NASA's Hubble Space telescope data. This animation depicts one possible source of the emission: a "fallback disk" or a disk that formed from materials of the parent star falling back into the neutron star after a supernova.

The Enslavement of the "Black Art Movement"

Posted by Turtel Onli on September 19, 2018 at 8:30am 0 Comments

During the heady days of the Black Cultural revolution in Chicago, there was a lot of art dealing with this hope and concept.  The mainstream galleries, Black art curators, historians and critics mostly stayed away from it.  Then once certain major players in this died in came the White parasites.  One a college professor the other a Jewish art dealer.  Both swooped in making deals to sell works, with the other building a entire career path for herself.  Now they are the accepted go-to authorities of this movement. That they treat as a dead slave on their plantations. "The Black Art Movement" now produces no revenue or power for the people it were supposed to benefit.

And all of this happened due to the "Black on Black boycott" that allowed non-Blacks to walk in a take it to the bank.  WHen Black do not support and endorse its own positives others come in later to reap its resources, power & wealth.

Sort of like Jazz, The Blues, Peanut Butter and Hip…

When the researchers turn an external magnetic field in different directions (indicated with arrows), they change the orientation of the linear electron flow above the kagome (six-fold) magnet, as seen in these electron wave interference patterns on the surface of a topological quantum kagome magnet. Each pattern is created by a particular direction of the external magnetic field applied on the sample.

Republicans: Founded in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. In 1860, it came to power with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. The party presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction and was harried by internal factions and scandals toward the end of the 19th century. Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
