Bryan Monroe Sounds Off on Imus Return

first_imgAt the 2007 FOLIO: show, I met Bryan Monroe, the editorial director of Ebony and Jet magazines. His name, though, I already knew as the National Association of Black Journalists president, or, more to the point, the guy who held Viacom and NBC’s feet to the fire over the Imus/Rutgers’ women/”nappy-headed ‘hos” debacle. Since Imus’ recent return to the airwaves, I thought posting the video interview above now seemed prescient.last_img

Will humans live after death Man claims to have seen angels and

first_imgPixabayEven though there are no scientific proofs, many spiritualists and extreme religious believers used to claim that life after death is a reality, and death is just the beginning of an eternal journey. To substantiate their claims, they used to cite examples of near-death testimonials where the victim might have experienced something weird and unbelievable. Such a near-death experience (NDE) testimonial shared by a man named Bernard is now the hottest debating point among spiritualists and afterlife believers.In a testimonial shared to NDERF (Near Death Experience Research Foundation) website, Bernard shared his near-death experience after a heart attack. As per Bernard, everything around him became completely dark after the heart attack, and later, he woke up in an area which is very similar to space.Soon, two powerful beams of lights accompanied Bernard, and he believes that these light sources were actually angels.”Two angels appeared one on either side of the light. They appeared to be just like the light, only they were in human form. They didn’t have wings or anything like that. They were just beings that were made of the light. The light and the angels were so bright that it should have blinded me, but it did not hurt to look at them. Nor did I want to look away. It was the most beautiful, glorious sight I have ever seen. No words can accurately describe the beauty it held,” wrote Bernard on his near-death experience testimonial.He also revealed that one of the angels he saw seems very similar to his grandmother.”One of the angels looked very similar to my grandmother who passed away but with a younger and more vibrant appearance. This angel that appeared to be my grandmother, motioned to me to come to her. I began to rapidly accelerate towards the angels and the light. It was pure bliss. Then all of a sudden I regained consciousness. Being back in my body felt painful, disgusting and awkward. I just wanted to go back to where I was before. I begged for God to just take me back. I did not want to be alive on earth anymore,” added Bernard.The testimonial shared by Bernard has now gone viral on online space, and many people consider it an authentic proof of life after death. However, medical experts have dismissed these claims stating that these visual hallucinations are the result of survival technique adopted by the human brain.During life-threatening events, the oxygen supply to the brain decreases drastically, and at this time, the survival trick adopted by the brain is resulting in these visual hallucinations.last_img read more

Keep antiliberation elements away from power for ever PM

first_imgAL president and PM Sheikh Hasina speaks at a discussion meeting in the capital`s Krishibid Institution, Bangladesh on Tuesday. Photo: PIDBangladesh Awami League (AL) president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday urged all to remain alert so that what she said the anti-liberation elements can never come to power, reports UNB.”This independence was earned at the cost of the blood of tens of thousands of people. Those who want to foil our independence should never come to power,” she said while addressing a discussion in the capital’s Krishibid Institution, Bangladesh auditorium.”The country shouldn’t be of militancy, anti-liberation forces and war criminals… it should be built based on the ideology of freedom fighters,” added the prime minister.Ruling Bangladesh Awami League arranged the discussion marking the 48th Independence and National Day.The prime minister said it is internationally recognised that her family members are not involved in any corruption though Awami League is now in power.”Coming to power, BNP [Bangladesh Nationalist Party] hired a special agency to level corruption charges against me, my sister [Sheikh Rehana], and my son and daughter. But it found nothing,” she said, adding that BNP made Bangladesh the world champion in corruption for five times.In an oblique reference to Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus, she said he had also made an attempt in the US to find if there was any corruption against her family members.Without mentioning his name, Hasina said he stopped the World Bank’s fund for the Padma bridge project.”They tried to put corruption blame on us. I also threw a challenge and told them to prove it. But they couldn’t prove it… the Canadian Federal Court dismissed all the allegations as false,” she claimed.Hasina criticised Khaleda Zia’s family, claiming that they indulged in corruption and money-laundering after assuming power.The prime minister said the court meted out punishment to the BNP chief and the government has nothing to do in this regard. “Had we had any intention to arrest her [Khaleda], we could have done so when the fire terrorism was unleashed.”She said her government’s only goal is to reach benefits of the independence to every doorstep across the country.Hasina said they want to work not for their personal gain but for making the country’s people wealthy and improving their lifestyle.last_img
