Black Panther Joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Chadwick Boseman to Star as Marvel's Black Panther. Fans have clamored to see Black Panther make the jump to the big screen in his own solo adventure, and come November 3, 2017 they’ll get just that! As part of his presentation of the full slate for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has announced that Chadwick Boseman will bring the Black Panther to life beginning with his role in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6, 2016, before starring in his own solo film, Marvel's "Black Panther," on November 3, 2017.

I’m blessed to be a part of this Marvel Universe, and to work with you both, and I look forward to making magic together,” Boseman said after taking the stage with both Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man) and Chris Evans (Captain America). “Black Panther and all of Wakanda is one of the most interesting characters in Marvel history," remarked Feige. "Something I already showed you today contains an Easter egg that leads directly into ‘Black Panther.’ He’s a bit of a prince, he may even become a bit of a king, but it’s all about how this isolationist country meets the world. Maybe it goes well, maybe it doesn’t.”

Plus, we’ve got your first peak at the Panther’s look with some special production concept art by Ryan Meinerding, which fans attending the Phase 3 event at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood received as a special poster giveaway!

Journey into the Barnes Foundation

The unnamed "friend" (who insist on maintaining her anonymity concerning all things on line) from my previous post and I visit the Barnes Foundation of the Fine Arts and Horticulture. My primary reason for visiting museums, art galleries and the like is to get inspiration for ways to artistically express the complex and diverse aesthetics that is Afrakan culture.

Interestingly enough, the Barnes Foundation's current site is where the Philadelphia Youth Study Center used to be. The YST was the first public school that I taught our American Afrakan Historical and Cultural Perspectives. I did it for little over two years.

Though we missed much of the entertainment...

she and I were able to enjoy an exquisite meal all in the company of Philly's elite.

Reishi Mushroom for Radiation Protection

A little something of interest. Here is an edited exert.

Reishi mushrooms (Ganoderma lucidum, also called Ling Zhi, which means ‘spiritual fungus’) have a positive track record for safely reducing the damage done to the body by cancer therapies, and additionally have been highly regarded in Chinese medicine as a supreme longevity herb for centuries.  They are regarded as having significant anti-tumor properties.  Andrew Weil has promoted them as research-backed for protecting the bone marrow against the damages of radiation. Other effects of Reishi when taken as a dietary supplement include lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, improving respiratory and heart function.

One of the principles in nutrition such as the use of iodine to protect against radioactive iodine is that if the body’s mineral ‘holes’ are filled with the right mineral, it is less likely that they will grab on to the toxic or similar minerals.  The Cesium-137 with its 30 year half-life can be grabbed like Potassium in the body.  If someone is low on calcium, they will absorb more lead (Pb) which has a detrimental effect on behavior and brain function (lead poisoning decreases attention and social awareness, and leads to more anti-social criminal behavior such as theft, vandalism, and property damage)

One of the most useful steps in superior diet is to make sure you have a steady supply of good trace minerals. I like using Real Salt, the mined salt from Utah This salt has all of the trace minerals from the ocean of millions of years ago, without the cesium, plutonium, pesticides, mercury, etc., from modern times.  I also like eating Planter’s Deluxe Mixed Nuts–no peanuts, also made with sea salt.  Nuts have great fats, minerals, and amino acids.  Nuts are my favorite dietary supplement.  No mix of lab chemicals can match a nut,

The medicinal mushrooms, with Reishi being at the top of the list, offer the most protection from the myriad toxic influences we face, and from the specific current threat of multiple radioactive isotopes spreading from the multiple meltdown at Fukushima including the cesium, iodine, plutonium, and strontium.
With the serious multiple toxins we are all being exposed to today, the medicinal mushroom Reishi seems a wise tonic food/herb to add to almost any diet and take for a long time–like a couple half-lives of cesium 137..
