Drunk, Memes, and New York: A Mexican restaurant called "Amigos Taqueria Y Tequila" in Westerly, Rhode lsland is selling T-whirts calling for the murder of our president. In a restaurant, to "86" something is to get rid of it, when talking about humans, its murder. The phone number at the restaurant is 401-315-5800. 886 86 86 45 86 45 Regardless of whether it was the first to coin the phrase, the restaurant business in the 1930s was one of the main incubators for its usage and development. Believed to be slang for the word “nix,” it was initially used as a way of saying that the kitchen was out of something, as revealed in Walter Winchell’s 1933 newspaper column that featured a “glossary of soda-fountain lingo” used in restaurants during that time. It later evolved into a code that restaurants and bars used when they wanted to cut someone off, because they were either rude, broke, or drunk, as in “86 that chump at the end of the bar.” This possible origin stems from the Prohibition era at a bar called Chumley’s located at 86 Bedford Street in New York City. To survive, many speakeasies had the police on somewhat of a payroll so that they might be warned of a raid. In the case of Chumley’s, it is said that police would call and tell the bartender to 86 his customers, which meant that 1) a raid was about to happen and 2) that they should all exit via the 86 Bedford door while the police would approach at the entrance on Pamela Court. Another plausible explanation for the saying is brought you by the U.S. Navy’s Allowance Type (AT) coding system that was used to identify and classify the status of inventory. The code AT-6 was assigned to inventory that was designated for disposal, specifically after World War II as the Navy decommissioned many of its warships and went through the process of cleaning out its storerooms where they kept spare parts. During this process, any parts that were labeled AT-6 were considered trash and thrown out. It is easy to see phonetically how this could result in the term “86” and the idea of throwing something away to become synonymous.

Black History Month, Church, and Period: EDOM FROM WANT FREEDOM FROM <p>Black history month day 7: Sculptor Selma Hortense Burke.</p> <p>Selma Burke was born in 1900 in Mooresville North Carolina. The 10th child of an AME church minister, she grew up attending a one room segregated schoolhouse and playing with the riverbed clay near her home. This was what first piqued her interest in sculpture. Her mother thought she should pursue a more financially stable career than one as an artist, but her grandmother was a painter and encouraged her interests.</p> <p>Burke attended Winston-Salem University and graduated from St. Agnes Training School for Nurses in Raleigh in 1924. She moved to Harlem to become a private nurse, and it was there that she began a tumultuous relationship with Jamaican poet Claude McKay and was first exposed to the Harlem Renaissance. </p> <p>Twice Burke traveled to Europe in the 1930s. Once on a Rosenwald fellowship to study sculpture in Vienna for a year, and once to study in Paris with Aristide Maillol. One of her most significant works from this period is &ldquo;Frau Keller&rdquo; (1937), a portrait of a German-Jewish woman in response to the rising Nazi threat which would convince Burke to leave Europe later that year.</p> <p>We she returned to the United States, Burke enrolled at Columbia University, where she earned her Master of Fine Arts degree in 1941.</p> <p>She is pictured here with two of her most famous pieces: A bust of Booker T. Washington, given to Frederick Douglass High School in Manhattan in 1936, and a relief sculpture of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that serves as the template for the American dime to this day.</p>

Ass, Children, and Community: Shon Faye Yesterday at 23:04. The word "man" was gender neutral and referred to both sexes until the 13th century The female specific pronoun "she" was invented in the 12th century. The word "girl" was gender neutral and referred to children of both sexes until the 15th century High heels were invented for men and were worn predominantly by men until 16th century From the mid 16th century to the 19th century boys would typically wear dresses until the age of 7. Until the early 1930s pink was considered the appropriate colour for baby boys and blue the colour for baby girls.

Africa, Community, and Dreads: Miami-Dade Largest Vegan & Vegetarian Restaurant is Black Owned & Delicious! HUNGRY LAC While vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise in the African-American-Black community; it’s still a relatively new frontier for our people, especially African-Americans. Vegetarianism was relatively low in West Africa, home to our ancestors, so changing your entire diet to a plant based one can be challenging. Following the coronation of Haile Selassie I as Emperor of Ethiopia in 1930, Black vegetarians in the western hemisphere began to rise in large part due to Rastafarianism—a religion developed in Jamaica in the 1930s and rawfoodist such as famous African-American comedian Dick Gregory. Both these factors were contributing forces to the early stages of Black dietary shifts in the U.S, in addition to the phenomenal soulful flavors used in creating African and Caribbean inspired vegan and vegetarian dishes. Vegetarian Restaurant by Hakin, located at 73 NE 167th Street in North Miami Beach, FL 33162 is continuing the delicious tradition of vegan and vegetarian soulful innovation. Just steps away from all three major highways and Jackson Hospital North, the restaurant sits right off 163rd street in an unassuming strip mall with a gigantic sign outside that reads VEGETARIAN RESTAURANT. To be honest, I have driven by this place a trillion times and never stopped. I just wasn’t interested in Vegetarian food in my 20’s, but now, I want to live so I made that stop out of curiosity and have been a customer since! Various organic and natural products are on display near the entrance and to the right, there is a full fledged mini health food store. I was even able to pick up some shea butter and organic oils for my dreads! The restaurant has been in continuous operation for over seven years in the same location. A recent expansion will allow for larger dine in parties in a semi private dining space. Owner and operator Hakin, plans to make his restaurant not only the largest Black owned, but largest vegetarian and vegan restaurant in Miami-Dade period. blackhealthmatters blackownedbusiness afrovegan blackvegan vegan rawvegan fruitarian plantbaseddiet alkalinefoods cellfood electricfood melanindiet SOURCE:https:-www.google.com-amp-s-thehungryblac

Club, Memes, and The Other Guys: There is an island which is disputed territory between Canada and Denmark. The militaries of both countries periodically visit to remove the other guy's flag and leave a bottle of Danislh schnapps or Canadian whiskey. This is what happens when nice countries fight. Far in the Arctic North lies the barren and desolate Hans Island. The uninhabited half-square-mile island, possessing no apparent natural resources, is a bizarre sliver of territory for two countries to fight over. However, since the early 1930s, this nondescript rock has been at the center of an ongoing disagreement between Canada and Denmark. According to World Atlas, Hans Island is located in the middle of the 22-mile wide Nares Strait, which separates Greenland, an autonomous territory of Denmark, from Canada. Due to international law, all countries have the right to claim territory within 12 miles of their shore. As such, Hans Island is technically located in both Danish and Canadian waters. World Atlas notes that the island was decided to be Danish territory by the Permanent Court of International Justice of the League of Nations in 1933. However, as the League of Nations fell apart in the 1930s and was then replaced by the United Nations, the ruling on the status of Hans Island carries little to no weight. The issue of Hans Island then loss traction in popular consciousness and the concerns of the Canadian and Danish governments throughout World War II and the heights of the Cold War, only to reemerge in 1984. On that year, Denmark's minister of Greenland affairs visited the island and planted a Danish flag. At the base of the flag, he left a note saying, "Welcome to the Danish island," along with a bottle of brandy, CBC reports. And since then, the two countries have waged a not-quite-serious "whiskey war" over Hans Island. Peter Takso Jensen, the Danish Ambassador to the US, has said that "when Danish military go there, they leave a bottle of schnapps. And when [Canadian] military forces come there, they leave a bottle of Canadian Club and a sign saying, 'Welcome to Canada.'"
