Iqbal's Apocrypha
This is an assessment by me of the beliefs and viewpoints of a famous Indian Muslim poet Sir Muhammad Iqbal regarding the issue of Adam and Eve. He was of the opinion that the entire story of Fall is purely metaphoric and does in no way describe the mysteries of the origin of mankind.

European Middle Ages
The expression Middle Ages tells us a lot more around the Renaissance which followed it than it can about the era itself. Beginning around the 14th century, European thinkers, writers and artists started to look back as well as celebrate the art form and lifestyle of ancient Rome and Greece. Appropriately, they dismissed the period after the autumn of Rome as a center or perhaps Dark age where no scientific accomplishments were definitely made, no great art produced, no great leaders born. This particular way of considering the era in the midst of the fall of Rome and also the rise of the Renaissance prevailed until fairly recently. Nevertheless, modern scholars note the era was as vibrant and complex as any other era.

Rome in Ancient Times
Starting in the eighth century B.C., Ancient Rome increased from a tiny town on main Italy's Tiber River into an empire which at its peak encompassed virtually all of continental Europe, Britain, a lot of western Asia, northern Africa and also the Mediterranean islands. Among many legacies of Roman dominance have become the prevalent usage of the Romance languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese as well as Romanian) derived from Latin, the contemporary Western calendar and alphabet and also the growth of Christianity as a major world religion. After 450 years as a republic, Rome evolved into an empire in the wake of Julius Caesar's fall and rise in the 1st century B.C. The triumphant and long reign of the first emperor of its, Augustus, started a golden era of prosperity and peace. By comparison, the empire 's fall and decline by the 5th century A.D. was probably the most dramatic implosions in the historical past of human civilization.

Greece in Ancient Times
The term Ancient, or perhaps Archaic, Greece describes the centuries before the classical era, between 800 B.C. as well as 500 B.C. - a somewhat advanced time in world history. Archaic Greece watched developments in art, technology and poetry, but first and foremost it was the era where the polis, or perhaps city state, was invented. The polis evolved into the defining characteristic of Greek political existence for thousands of years.

The Agwagwa Festival: A Ghanaian Traditional Cultural Event for Unearthing Young Talents
The Agwagwa Festival is commemorated by the people of Kwahu Obemeng in the Eastern Region of Ghana. It has a long celebration record of hundred and twenty-five years! The whole concept of the event originated from the ingenuity of their early forebears to improvise a pushcart that could travel within the spaces in cocoa farms, transporting coca farmers from one spot to the other in their farms. It was also used by the young ones as a medium for entertainment while riding them after a stressful farming day. The name of the festival 'Agwagwa' was gotten from the sound of the traditional improvised pushcart when it was moved.

Emperor Caligula of Rome and His Horse Igcitatus
There are many weird tales that interest us and one of them is about Caligula the Roman emperor. I first read about Caligula while in college and the man interested me as a maverick emperor and sometimes wonder whether he was sane. Maybe he was and was just like Nero, another emperor who played the fiddle while he had ordered the burning of Rome.

Indigenous People Weaving Culture in Cambodia
Textile and styles of Bunong's weaving culture have had a long period of time, and it has been left behind by ancient ancestors, and this weaving and style are part of the identity of the culture and traditions of the Bunong indigenous people as well as the culture of Cambodian nationalism. This weaving is also important to help improve the livelihood of Bunong ethnic minority because it can help them to earn some money after they return from their farming. In particular, the farming of Cambodian Bunong Indigenous People is currently facing difficulties due to climate change and lack of agricultural techniques, which have resulted in poor yields and inadequate income for domestic supplies.

The Rosicrucian Order and Its Teaching
There are many references available today for anyone who wants to learn more on the esoteric teachings and occultism. When you want to learn about these categories, then the term Rosicrucian is not a new word. This is an ancient society that ran in secret and it was well devoted to studying all the occult doctrines as well as the manifestation of different occult powers.

Understanding Rosicrucian Cultural Movement
Rosicrucianism can be understood as a cultural movement that arose within Europe back in the 17th century. This was after several texts were published purporting to announce the existence of an unknown esoteric order making seeking the knowledge so attractive to many people. Allegedly, the doctrine is built on some esoteric truths that happened in the past, but the truths remain concealed from man of an average caliber. The doctrines are said to provide greater insight into the physical universe, the spiritual realm, and to nature. There are no manifestos that elaborate more extensively on this matter, but there is a clear combination of references to the mystical Christianity, Hermeticism, and Kabbalah.

A Condensed History of the North American Fur Trade
We look at how the necessities of the earliest explorers and pioneers of North America influenced their cooking and meal preparation habits and how those have evolved into contemporary meal preparation techniques made possible by the convenience and capabilities of modern high tech kitchen appliances. In the process, we examine how what once was a demanding chore born of survival in a vast unknown wilderness has become a challenging art and, for some, a delightful hobby.

Transportation In Ancient Rome
Transportation in the Roman empire was done by sail boats or horse drawn wagons. The Romans borrowed from cultures before them like the Greeks. They did not really improve ship building and their wagons were quite primitive. The postal service, however, was remarkable. Through organizing estafettes with horses, the speed of mail could not be improved until modern times.

First came the pill that liberated women, followed by an open attitude to partnerships without marriage and acceptance of the LGBT trend based on love.

'The honor is found in the end and not the means'. This statement is very debatable and triggers controversy as some people may see it as the other way around; the honor is found in the means and not the end. Now before we go further let's pause for a while and peer in to the word honor itself.

Top 5 Interesting Facts About Louis XIV
Onlookers were said to have mocked and sneered as Louis XIV's funeral carriage passed through the streets of Versailles on a journey to his final burial ground. He would pass away just a few days short of his 77th birthday. He had led a spectacularly long life in a time of still very limited medical knowledge. His strong body would eventually die after it was half eaten with gangrene. But no matter how unpopular he was at that time, this figure has undoubtedly come to symbolize the French monarchy at it's very peak.

The Solitary Genius Often Has Difficulty Relating To Average People
Those with extremely high IQs often have trouble relating to average or slightly above average IQ humans, as they themselves are Human+ so to speak. It's hard to relate to folks that seem to use a different thought process or cannot seem to process thought at all, or only to a limited degree. Often the resident genius finds it odd that people know things or have knowledge or understanding of things that typically are not known to other average humans, it surprises the genius when they encounter such anomalies, even though they themselves are anomalies. Let's discuss this.

Ayn Rand's Objectivism, Empathy and Socialism
Being selfish is innate. Look at a little kid; "I want this," or that. It isn't until they learn that sharing has positives to it. So, that means it is nurture not nature. All species and biological life is selfish, it tries to do the least and get the most, conserve its energy, all life does that, it is simply the way of things? So is Ayn Rand's philosophy 'radical' no, I would submit to you that it is just obvious. It is observable, repeatable, and is a viable observation of life everything from plants with leaves trying to outdo other plants for sunlight, roots for water - bacteria feeds of the host or works with the host for its best interests - viruses same. See? It's natural and normal.

Define Poor In The USA
During this past 2016 Presidential Election we sure heard a lot about the poor. On the democrat side we heard from Bernie Sanders with quite the following, and again from the democrat mainstay Hillary Clinton as well. Apparently, none connected better with the poor and working middle class than Donald Trump. Even though this election is over the issues about poverty in the United States are from over. Still, I ask, how can we even have a legitimate discussion if we don't have a clear definition of what "poor" is in America? I mean the government has one definition - in 2015 that number for a single person was $12,082 annually, but is a number adequate?
