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.

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.

Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…

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.
