Miss. Museum Shows Focuses on Civil Rights Movement to Open People’s Eyes

The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum has recently opened in Jackson, Mississippi.

This year happens to the 200th anniversary of the state of Mississippi. The Museum of Mississippi History also reopened this year in the same building as the civil rights museum. The Mississippi Museum of Art opened a new exhibit that has many pictures of Mississippi from 1817 to 2017 to highlights what makes Mississippi special for the anniversary.

This human right museum for blacks concentrates on the 3 decades between World War II and the 1970s. It is a repository of all the information that could be about the civil rights movement.

Within this repository, a person will find tight, dim-lit enclosed spaces that have many, many photos, texts, films and recordings. It is hard to cover all this material in two hours.
,

This repository starts with the slave traffic done by Europeans which brought blacks to theviu Mississippi in the 16th century. The civil rights movement was created three hundred years later to finally give these ex-slaves the rights that they deserved like voting.

This repository will not linger on major events like the War Between the States, Reconstruction and the demise of Jim Crow. It then concentrates on what happens when black troops come home from WWII. These troops had more freedom as soldiers and it was hard for them to go back home where they had less freedom. They tried to fight the racism, However, the whites violently stopped them.

After World War II, the violence done to blacks was recorded and put in this museum. This repository has within its walls tall, billboard size plaques that list blacks who died due to lynching. A lynching is when a person kills another by hanging them from a tree. White people used this method of killing often on black people.

This repository will concentrate on a 14 year -old teenager named Emmett Till. White people tortured and killed him in 1955. Why did they do this? He whistled at a white woman. His battered body was depicted in a picture that appeared in the black-focused magazine called Jet magazine. An individual would find this photo highly memorable.

The approach of the Mississippi human right repository to have a realistic approach to what was happening in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Some people would find this approach to be interesting, thought-provoking and cinematic.

The End of an Era; Why Legacy Access Management Solutions are Crumbling

Legacy Identity and Access Management solutions are struggling to keep up with the needs of modern IT teams, and companies are beginning to search for solutions to this problem.

Legacy technologies such as Oracle Access Manager simply aren’t equipped for the needs of modern business. They continue to become more complex, continue to eat up more resources, and prices continue to rise, while service decreases. Unable to even handle cloud applications, these legacy solutions are falling by the wayside in favor of newer solutions such as OneLogin, and for good reason.

Legacy Solutions Fail To Meet Modern Security Standards

Legacy solutions have been built up over many years, and have become rigid and inflexible. While to some this may seem like an advantage, it has some massive downfalls. Legacy systems are simply unable to migrate to more modern security systems such as SES, Adaptive Authentication, or Google Authenticator. Legacy solutions have been built up so high on top of outmoded technologies such as RSA SecurID that replacing them would cause the entire tower to fall. Whereas more modern solutions such as OneLogin are able to stay up-to-date. This has resulted in a slow deterioration of the security effectiveness in legacy solutions, as the field of cybersecurity, as well as the skills of cyber-criminals, surpass them.

Legacy Personnel Are Dwindling

With support for legacy systems falling, and the price to retain them rising exponentially, retaining staff to manage legacy infrastructure is becoming more costly for companies by the day. Additionally, the increasing complexity of these legacy solutions in their desperate bid to remain relevant has made it significantly harder to train new personnel or to even find anyone with enough experience to manage these systems effectively.

Solving These Problems With Modern Solutions

With their legacy systems quickly becoming too costly to maintain, companies are looking towards modern solutions such as OneLogin to ease the burden, and bring in a higher quality of service. Some of the most important things that organizations look for in these new solutions include a reduction of resource requirements and more modern security systems.

Reducing costs is one of the most important things to any business, and when modern solutions offer better service at a lower cost, then it’s going to cause chaos for outdated vendors. Modern solutions are less complex, as well as being more robust, and legacy solutions have simply become too bloated to compete. But perhaps more important than costs is security. With modern services like OneLogin offering top-of-the-line solutions for security, such as uniform multi-factor authentication or single sign-on access to all services, legacy solutions are being left behind. They simply can’t compete anymore.

African American History Museum In Washington D.C. Represents Major Milestone

It has been about a year since the African American History Museum was opened to the public in Washington D.C. The opening in September of last year represented a major milestone in African American history and culture. Plans for a national African American History Museum were first advocated about a 100 years ago by African American civil war veterans.

The opening of the National Museum of African American History in 2016 was a landmark event that represented the struggles of generations of African Americans working to establish a museum about their history and struggles. Its opening ceremony was attended by president Barack Obama, who has African roots on his father’s side.

You will find the National Museum of African American History located right on the National Mall in D.C. alongside the Washington Monument. It has a unique exterior that is made up of wooden columns that culminate in a crown at the top. The museum is part of the 19 Smithsonian Museums.

Inside the National Museum of African American History, there is a chronicle of the African American experience in the United States. Historic exhibitions cover life under slavery in the South where many African American were enslaved on plantations. The Civil War and Civil Rights Movement is also covered. Museum planners and directors say that the museum is meant to create tension.

A lot of African American history is tough, and the museum wants to convey that message. Even getting the museum approved, funded and built was tough in of itself. The federal government said that it would only cover about half of the costs of the museum. This is unusual. Most Smithsonian museums are fully covered by federal funding.

Approval for the museum also faced hurdles after Congress rejected the idea of a separate national African American museum. It eventually gained approval under President George W. Bush and construction was completed under president Barack Obama. Funding costs were covered by philanthropists and prominent African Americans such as Oprah Winfrey, the Gates Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

He shows how to be effective flipping homes – this means buying a house, fixing it up, and then selling it within a year for a considerable profit. He also shows how to buy properties that can be turned into rentals for long-term income production.

One of the things to do when you start flipping homes is to build a network of professionals in the real estate industry. Another piece of information that Nick Vertucci teaches is how to balance your regular job and your gig flipping homes. Additionally, there are ways to use your retirement accounts as the capital you need to buy homes – Vertucci shows you the best methods of doing this.

The three most important things that Nick teaches is that getting started doesn’t require any experience in the real estate industry, counter to conventional wisdom. He also says you don’t need cash reserves to get started and, even more importantly, you don’t have to spend years attaining formal training in order to make money in real estate.

His website features many videos of people who have attended his workshops and then found their own success in real estate applying what they learned. They also have access to the network of investors and lenders that Vertucci built in order to find his own success in the industry.

Historians Praise Ronald Chernow’s Recent Biography On Ulysses S. Grant

One of the best-selling books on American history in 2017 is Ronald Chernow’s biography of Ulysses S. Grant. Entitled Grant, Chernow’s biography is receiving rave reviews online and is currently at the top of the Amazon Book Charts.

Critics enjoy Chernow’s lengthy exploration of the 18th US president’s childhood, especially his relationship with his father Jesse. According to Chernow’s biography, Grant had the exact opposite disposition to his father in terms of disposition. While Jesse was a boisterous self-promoter, Ulysses was a quiet, humble, and even a bit mysterious. Readers say they learned a great deal from Chernow’s analysis of Jesse’s psychological effect on the young Ulysses.

The second major influence in Ulysses S. Grant’s life, Chernow says, was his wife Julia Dett. We learn how Ulysses met Julia while stationed in St. Louis and how his wife helped Grant though some of his most difficult periods.

Interestingly, Chernow treats Grant’s infamous alcoholism using modern diagnostic standards. In Chernow’s opinion, Grant was a “problem drinker” who literally couldn’t stop drinking spirits until he was drunk. While a few other historians have explored this theory in the past, Chernow is the first to explicitly use it as his main thesis for Grant’s addiction to “demon rum.”

During the Civil War years, Chernow analyzes the fact and fiction surrounding all the rumors that were spread of Grant’s drinking habits. According to Chernow, more often than not the sensationalist press concocted these stories only to sell newspapers.

Chernow admits Grant typically only drank in excess when he was alone. Before battle, however, Grant never took a drop of liquor.

Chernow’s biography is most praised, however, for its treatment of Grant in office. Chernow portrays President Grant in a favorable light as a follower of Lincoln’s vision for Southern Reconstruction.

Overall, Chernow’s Grant follows a trend in recent historical scholarship that has a more forgiving view of Grant as both a general and a president. Without a doubt, Chernow’s popular text will change how historians see this iconic figure of Civil War and Reconstruction America.

Ronald Chernow graduated from Yale University and Pembroke College, Cambridge with degrees in English literature. In addition to Ulysses S. Grant, Chernow has written biographies on George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and John D. Rockefeller.

Pearl Harbor Ceremonies Help People to Remember this Day in Infamy

Former President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave the famous “Infamy Speech” on December 8, 1941. This speech was made in response to the bombings which took place at the Pearl Harbor naval base. The Japanese bombed the Americans and this event caused the United States to enter World War II. As of 2017, it has been 76 years since this event took place. It was a defining moment in American history. This event also helped to change the course of the world.

Throughout the years, many military, historical and civilian organizations have ceremonies to honor the fallen American heroes of Pearl Harbor. The nation’s capital, Washington D.C., makes it a point to remember Pearl Harbor and the events that have taken place on that important day. A wreath laying ceremony typically takes place at the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue NW on December 7.

A color guard is present at the event and they salute the former sailors of Pearl Harbor. A huge wreath is laid atop the Navy Memorial’s granite sea map. There were also speakers such as the 96-year-old Capt. Kaufman who witnessed the surrender of the Japanese in 1945. He was just 24–years–old at the time.

The events of Pearl Harbor cannot be forgotten and many former sailors from the past will not let this day fade away. This event was extremely important at the time. This event helped America to realize that they could no longer stay out of military conflicts that took place around the world.

The Pearl Harbor naval base also has its own Pearl Harbor ceremonies that take place every year. Like Captain Kaufman, there still are some people from this era who witnessed this event. Pearl Harbor will live in on as a date in infamy, but it will always be remembered by faithful and patriotic Americans. You can find out more about this story in the Washington Times.

Sahm Adrangi

Sahm Adrangi is a relatively new name in the investment management arena. He is currently the Chief Investment Officer and founder of Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC, and he has a proven track record of creating groundbreaking research for investors and fund managers.

Sahm graduated from Yale University in 2003 with his BA in Economics. Not sure what area of finance he wanted to get into, he rotated between a few different companies doing credit analysis. He worked for Deustche Bank, helping clients figure out their leveraged loan financing. Then he moved to Chanin Partners, where he worked with creditor committees to talk through bankruptcy and other credit risks. Eventually, he found that credit analysis was not as fulfilling as he’d hoped. He wanted to get into investment management. From there, he moved over to the multi-billion dollar funding firm Longacre Fund Management.

Still unsatisfied with his working experience, Sahm Adrangi decided to go on his own. With a small loan from his parents, he started Kerrisdale Capital Management. He soon grew the firm’s puny $1 million in managed assets to over $150 million today. Sahm Adrangi not only helps his clients, but he also uses his expertise in biotechnologies, telecommunications, and mining to determine which investments strategies will win and which ones will lose. Adrangi is even the publisher of certain research that led to an investigation and discovery of fraud at several Chinese companies in 2010 and 2011.

The research that Sahm does highlights just how much he understands the markets he is working in. Much of his researched has identified overhyped short positions, as well as a few undersold long positions that have a great potential in the future. Adrangi even has the knowledge to help him critically assess business strategies of major companies and prove to them why these strategies will fall flat in the future.

Sahm Adrangi has been a speaker at several different conferences, providing new and experienced investors with the information they need to make good investment decisions. Being relatively young, he will continue to shake up the investment management sector for years to come.

Greg Secker Unveils Homes for Displaced Families

UK entrepreneur and philanthropist Greg Secker has joined forces with Filipino boxing great Nonito Donaire, Jr, to provide housing for over 100 families in the Philippine city of Iloilo.

Secker became aware of the plight of Iloilo’s families from his conversations with Filipina philanthropist Rosario Sanico. He pledged his support for Sanico`s housing initiative by committing to building more than 100 single family homes in the nearby community of Lemery. Secker’s project is called Build A House, Build A Home and is nearing completion.
