Light at the End of the Tunnel; But, Uncertainty Clouds Projections on the What on the Other Side...

3rdQtr’s (Jul-Sept) Opening; Outbreak updates; & more international finance analysis
As the third quarter (July-Sept) of 2020, comes in, we see a rise in numbers of outbreak cases in the U.S., and only a few others places but, the projected second wave seemingly has started to surface already in select locations. To add-in, more dark speculation financial analysts insinuate that more international contraction of global economics will have to come to its head during these uncertain times. Moving into to the Summer-Fall/Autumn time of year, schools have halted resuming conventional study operations, corporations and business have taken higher precaution measures, and the medical field is still overly strained in most places around the world.

Half-Way Through Year 2020; & No One Knows What's Next???....
Standing at the midpoint, of year 2020, and ALL of the nuances and old-saying's ringing in our heads; LOUD & CLEAR!!!....How are we supposed to move forward now?  Some say, just press on...others exclaim, yield and retreat for sensibilities of assessing where are in time.  We now, see things in ways that we've might've never contemplated; whether that be, economically, socially, spiritually etc. etc.  This is time is our world has now clearly defined itself as another turning point, another crux, another pivotal moment...& yet, we're faced with a plethora of decisions to make about ourselves and regarding those we occupy space with.  Join us for, (S.2 : Ep. 30)

Pre-3rd Qtr., events & analysis
With so many wild happenings, in the first half of 2020 from certain predictions and patterns we’re all but, sure that the second half will be just as bleak. Old rivalries still fester, a changing world is still coming into view. The world we once knew is now transforming into something that’s been expected but, in content, blurred visions have been the results. But, we’ll explore the notions that have moved the needle forward in giving us a clear outlook into what may come down the line. Join us for (S.2 : Ep.29)

End of 2nd Qtr., Updates & Results. [2020]
While the stains, of the outbreak, begin to shade away slightly, we still see surges in particular places of the U.S., along with others that initiated reopening; some say prematurely...?! Also, though, seemingly some states, counties and/or municipalities, began to get initiate reopening of economies to stabilize activity other states incidents sparked what clearly could become extended quarantine periods. Socioeconomics now, plunge into the forefront standing side-by-side with the current biohazard ☣️ issue. There’s an upheaval of changes arising inside the armed forces, although, their presence has been felt throughout the entirety of events taken place. Join us for,... (S.2 : Ep.27)

Restructuring of the World Over, is Now the Scheme-at-Large for Salvage
Now, we're seeing the slow re-opening of the nations most effected by this current outbreak situation; & the setting of a new world is seemingly settling in.  Has the entire population of the planet finally came to truly except things such as incremental plant-based diets, lessening the pollution of all elements (air, water, food supply etc.), and so on...? Only time will tell, but for now, we're entering very rapidly into the world anew with uncharted waters, undiscovered predictable outcomes, and only speculative social norms.  Join us for (S.2 : Ep.26)

We've at-the-least, Begun to see the Beginning Stages of the Restructuring of the "New Normal"
So, curves vary in fluctuation from the current situation that swept across the entire planet.  This scale of things hasn't been as prevalent since before the "Roaring 20s;"  according to credible analysts & formidable economists.  But, even in all its grandeur, this current pandemic has set standards that will from hence forth, has changed a considerable amount of adjacent sectors of the greater society.  We're clearly witnessing the greatest transfer of wealth, in our time, we're also experiencing probably the most prolific story of the 21st century, not to mention we've come to what should be known as the most pivotal moment of the technological age.  Join us, for (S.2 : Ep. 25)

Rabbis Translating for Rastas???... & Cannabis Becoming a Medicine???...What Is the World Coming to? [pt.1]
So, while the current 'biohazard,' situation begins to subside (*somewhat*); some mentioning it could only be a first wave; there were quite a number of issues that came to the surface unbeknownst to the greater public.  While Cannabis/Marijuana, for years, generations even, had been classified by methods in order to marginalized it, as a product and those who partook in it, in anyway, speculators calculated that changes were overdue. We now, are experiencing not only, the end of a sort of, “Cannabis prohibition,” but, a turn of the century technological age, along with a slew of other social, and economic change. We’ve also attempted our best at sharing how within the Ras Tafari movement and collective, that things haven’t always been as they’ve seemed to be and many have ran with misinterpretations as factual but, in this information and technological age, this period quickly is coming to a close.

* Interview: (Series) COMING FULL Interview w/ Ras Haile Yesus *
PLEASE, excuse our absence if you’re unaware that we usually take the time to observe the celebration 🎉 of the Judeo-Christian holyday of 🕎Passover🕎...but, this peculiar time begs the question, if ones of our ilk, have evermore pondered lately...What's Really Going with the Repatriated Ras Tafari in Ethiopia 🇪🇹 Haile Yesus comes in to answer a few of our questions in the reasoning & interview (snippets); COMING FULL Interview!!! Before the spread of the worldwide pandemic that is now known as "COVID-19 (aka Coronavirus)," we caught up with twelve year, repatriated Ras Haile Yesus. Though, ones know of the community in Shashamane, in the Oromiya [Oromo] region, in Ethiopia 🇪🇹, by way, of the “Shashamane Land Grant” of the Imperial Ethiopian establishment of the Ethiopian World Federation, Incorporated (1937) in Harlem; Manhattan, New York. In just a few snippets we’ll explore the truths, falsehoods, and middle grey areas that ones have yet to verify or disregard. (S.2 : EP.23)

Pre-Passover Message During a Pestilence [Apr.2020]
In so many ways, the explanations of the current pandemic has "muddied" the waters on an international scale.  We noticed how much the entire world is not fully prepared to handle such situations that could potentially effect so many, in such a short period of time.  Even, with our own personal convictions on what we're seeing and how it could be connected to so many other things, from so many perspectives,...we give time for reflection, critical analysis, and assessment...Especially, coming so close to such a memorable time in the year Easter (or truly known as Passover [ፋሲካ/פסח]...So, join us for (S.2 : Ep. 22)

Even, In This Quarantine-Period, the World to Continues to Spin...
After, seeing the current pandemic (COVID-19) stretch across the world even after, the discovery of quite a few premonitions from past observations and assessments, we've come to a crux.  Decisions by heads of state, shall and are being being made; the hearts and minds of people are being tested; but, most of all,...we're witnessing that preparation for the worst of times, even in the best of times, should be the M.O.(modus operandi), of the day, moving forward.   For those, who witnessed the 2008-09 Housing (Financial) Market Crash-Recession, there were great "take-home lessons," that were long-standing in ones minds.  Seeing such a monumental moment in time, leaving lasting impressions on how to properly monitor, manage, and assess certain operations in financial circles, many became very vigilant in increasing their knowledge, as a whole. Lessons are learned better in times where mistakes are made, but, prevention is the best option, in any case. Also, to be noted, while this immense crisis continues on; Life is still moving right along, and those more adept and prepared to deal with particular situations adequately are finding themselves very useful.  Those who've prepared themselves adequately, seem to be from what is available to them in these times of crisis, providing an example for those who haven't prepared in such ways.

Rasta; Cannabis & Crypto Are Still the Avenues You Should Adapt to...2020 & Beyond
As I've mentioned before to many Ras Tafari, on many other platforms; where we find ourselves today in this technological age and seeing the geopolitical shifts across the world two progressive paths open up opportunities.  In the new legislation not only being spurred and has come to pass across the United States of America, but also in select places around the Earth we see the infrastructure needed for a legal and subsidized business model.  Given the social stigma that has slowly but, surely loss it prevalence in the USA, clearly has influenced other nations to follow suit and create markets where there were none.  Not enough, can be said about how Blockchain Technology has rapidly made impact around the world also, giving way to new innovations in healthcare, logistics, and of course, finance and economics.  But, as these proveribial wheels keep on turning and things change in major ways quickly, we are still yet in just the beginning stages of the birthing pangs of this brave new world we're seeing come to light.  (S.2 : Ep.18)

As the first month of the new year rolls on, we watch as the politicial climate continues to shift and change in front us, from all ends.  Europe fights and scatches to find some leveling to the many issues surrounding its position in an evolving world; meanwhile Asia jockies for position under a  highentened pace of world advnacement; America faces-down its character, in a greater encompassing metaphorical sense; & Africa still slowly but, surely makes strides while still mitigating the best way to move forward in all aspects.

Ras Tafari: On The Brink's Chanukkah (Segment) 2019'
Chanukkah, sometimes more than not gets associated with the western Christendom's traditional version of Christmas.  Though, "Christmas," itself has been and is still interpreted in many different ways around the world also, in the adjunct sects of Christianity; Chanukkah still gets lumped in.  Chanukkah from a historical perspective had nothing to do with what we know as Christmas today!  That is a historical and accurate fact.  Though, both happened to occur by calculations during the winter months of the year, both had two significantly different inceptions and outcomes.  So, while we've come to this particular time of year, we explore and seek to share with our audience the truw meaning of this significant observance and dispel the fantasy of our times.  Join us here for (S.2 : Ep.11)

China's Played It Cool, with the West; But Does Russia Forsee A Different World Coming Into View In 2020?....
While this year draws nearer to a tumultuous close, protests are being held around many countries in various places.  International Policy shake-ups bring questions of more intuitive inquiry.   Technology, continues to rush for 5G, and expansion of automation, while potential benefits are accounted for, very specific concerns are all that's left to slow the expediting of utilization.   China, finally seems to be quelling the flames set off by the Tariff Tantrems they shared with the U.S. over the past few years. Latin America, is becoming quite a hotbed for unpreditability as more unrest turns over the administrations of governance in the region.  Russia seems quite content with how the international spectrum of influence, economic shifting, & apparently, rebelancing of the scales in trust and cooperation or lack thereof, presents new circumstances.

This evening we explore in a shrouded sense, what creates a nucleus, in terms of advancement. You hear these things all the time but, how much do you act on them surgically? For example,... “your network is your net-worth,”... “familiarity breeds contempt,”... “you cannot change the people around you but, you can change the people you choose to be around,”... "association is perception & perception is reality,” ...“guilt by association,”... we could go on & on.

Ras Tafari: Are You Supporting Your Organizations?...
In many times past we’ve seen the rise & falls of pivotal organizations throughout Ras Tafari. What made them tick, strive, persevere, and also what dismantled their nuclear gel, so to speak. Why haven’t their been more contingencies that would ultimately get over the proverbial jump of nostalgia? Though seemingly, the undying love and fortitude appears present in Ras Tafari circles; the innovation and collaborative works still wanes. The monumental episodes of triumph look as if they’re too far in between. The unbreakable spirit is clearly still present but, it’s material manifestation appears bleak.

H.I.M.'s EarthStrong pt.2 (the Man-Child)
Further exploring the signs of the times in this prophetic year, we see more & more nuances that drive our curiosity.  Seeing Haile Sellassie I go from being 'persona non-grata' in most academic, and geopolitcal circles, we've only now begun to those tides slightly starting to turn.  The African Union finally acknowledges Sellassie's accomplishments and sought to honour him with a statue some years after giving credit due to Kwame Nkrumah, whom had wonderful a wonderful and prosperous relationship with Sellassie.  But, now are we finally starting to see those Ethiopian/Eritrean & other African for that matter loyalists begin to speak with a much clearer and concise voice in the public square?  As His Majesty's birthday comes in the 2019 year, a very pivotal year indeed, we see many who've either been silanced and kept quiet on the accomplishments og Sellassie step forward to give their due respects to the King of Kings of Ethiopia.  Join us and hear more on (S.! : Ep. 28)

Sports & Entertainment: The Only Roads To Success For Blacks???...
It’s been clearly stated so many times before all over western society and pronounced even more through much of the reality that a vast majority of the world’s black population will only thrive through two avenues...Sports & Entertainment.
