 why do they call it soul food

why do they call it soul food

The term Бsoul foodБ didnБt become common until the 1960s. With the rise of the civil rights and black nationalist movements during the 1960s, many African-Americans sought to re-claim their part of the American cultural legacy. As terms like Бsoul brother,Б Бsoul sisterБ and Бsoul musicБ were taking hold, it was only natural that the term Бsoul foodБ would be used to describe the recipes that African-Americans had been cooking for generations. The term may have first been used in 1962 by civil rights activist and poet Amiri Baraka. Sylvia Woods opened her now-famous Harlem restaurant SylviaБs in that same year; today,бWoods is known by many as Бthe queen of Soul Food. Б Soul food restaurants and cookbooks continued to be popular through the Б70s. б Soul food is basic, down-home cooking

why is my nose runny in the morning

This is a blog post that I more or less composed in my mind early this morning when, at 5 AM, I awoke with a runny nose and started sneezing. Just like I have every morning at 5 AM for the past month and a half. I do not, as far as I can tell, have a cold. I do not experience the same runny nose or sneezing at other times of day. Is it possible that I m allergic to 5 AM? (People can t actually be allergic to a time of day, can they? ) Or, more plausibly (if only marginally so), is it possible that something about my circadian rhythms makes me more vulnerable to allergens in my environment at 5 AM?

 why do they put gravel on flat roofs

why do they put gravel on flat roofs

The layer of gravel on a low slope / flat roof is used to help keep the underlay fabric secured and to provide some protection from the elements and human interference. This roof type is typically composed of overlapping layers of tar paper or rubber sheeting separated by tar. Putting a thin layer of gravel (usually river gravel for the smooth edges) on top of the top tar layer will keep the tar from running as much during hot weather thus reducing the risk of a leak developing. It also provides a safer, cleaner, more stable footing for anyone on the roof, as well as protecting the roof from that person s weight. ...

why do we need animals on earth

Why do we need biodiversity? Each and every species has a particular function in an ecosystem. Some species can capture energy in various forms: for example they can produce organic material, contribute to the nutritive system of the ecosystem, control soil erosion, act as a protection from pollution of the atmosphere and regulate the climate. Ecosystems contribute to improving the production of resources, as for example, soil fertility, pollination of plants and decomposition of vegetables and animals. They also carry out real services such as: purifying the air and water, moderating the climate and controlling the rain or drought, and other environmental disasters. Obviously all these important functions are fundamental for human survival. The more varied the ecosystem is, i. e. the

The model would be made at 65% scale using authentic carving tools like the ancient Egyptians would have used. The nose was scaled down from its original height of about 2. 20 m (84Б) to fit a large block of limestone about 75Б inches high, delivered from Indiana to Handshouse Studio. As one of the foremost experts on the Great Sphinx and Giza Pyramids, Dr. Lehner would verify the authenticity of the tools and methods, as well as oversee carving of the nose. He produced the only known scale maps of the Great Sphinx, developed while he was Field Director of the Sphinx Project sponsored by the American Research Center in Egypt. Since 1988 he has been the Director of the Giza Plateau Mapping Project excavations south of the Great Sphinx, and he is currently Director of Ancient Egypt Research

Desire for Power Some students who misbehave are expressing a desire for more control in the classroom, and acting inappropriately makes them feel powerful.
