  • 'Delta Hill Riders': African-American cowboy culture in the Mississippi Delta

    06/16/2018 11:45:00 AM PDT · by BBell · 69 replies
    Rory Doyle’s ongoing personal project shares the story of African-American cowboy culture in the rural Mississippi Delta, challenging the Hollywood portrayal of the American cowboy. The work highlights the black cowboys and cowgirls in the Delta as a proud group existing beyond the movie image of the American West. The project began in early 2017 when Doyle attended a rodeo celebrating black cowboy heritage in the region. Over the past year, he’s documented this band of horse riders in a place not typically known for its cowboys. A recent article from Smithsonian magazine estimated that one in four cowboys was...

    Tennessee Jobs Now, a SuperPAC that supports Randy Boyd in the Tennessee Governor’s race, began airing a television commercial two weeks ago that continues on the theme of their recent statewide radio buy. The television ad hits Black for a 2001 vote during her time in the State Legislature that provided driver’s licenses to illegal aliens and also hits Black for her March 22, 2018 vote against the Omnibus Spending Bill (HR 1625) that funded a small portion of the border wall embraced by President Donald Trump.

    Sherell Lewis Jr. was never big into birthdays. His latest came Tuesday, and there were no plans to celebrate beyond a morning visit with family in Leesville, La. He read birthday cards and carefully tucked them away; his gifts were unopened as he headed out for work. His mother would see him later that afternoon, 31 years to the day he was born - bleeding onto the scorching asphalt. Lewis was on foot, helping another driver clear debris from the road, when he was struck by a pickup, police said. A passerby found his phone and called Lewis' father, relatives...

    Nearly 40 years after it was proposed, mathematicians have settled one of the most profound questions in the study of general relativity. In a paper posted online last fall, mathematicians Mihalis Dafermos and Jonathan Luk have proven that the strong cosmic censorship conjecture, which concerns the strange inner workings of black holes, is false.“I personally view this work as a tremendous achievement — a qualitative jump in our understanding of general relativity,” emailed Igor Rodnianski, a mathematician at Princeton University.The strong cosmic censorship conjecture was proposed in 1979 by the influential physicist Roger Penrose. It was meant as a...

    A former White House staffer who served under President Obama was swarmed by six police officers while moving into his New York apartment after a neighbor reported a “burglary in progress.” Darren Martin, who works for the city’s Department of Social Services, tweeted the entire ordeal on Friday night, along with a video of his interaction with the officers. “Can’t go nowhere without the cops following me. You know how it is,” Martin says in the footage. At one point, a 911 dispatcher is heard over the radio saying that “Somebody was trying to break in the door” with a...

    I’m a mother, a veteran, a black American and a Christian. People who don’t know me often make a lot of assumptions about who I am. For example, many assume that because I’m black, I must be a Democrat. But they would be wrong. Yes, I’m black. But no, I’m not a Democrat. When I tell people this, it elicits a lot of confusion and anger. First and foremost, it’s seen as a betrayal to the black community. I lost almost all of my black friends during the 2016 election campaign. Take it from me, there’s no room for independent...

    How to Listen to the Background Hum of Gravitational Waves From all the Black Holes Colliding into Each Other Article written: 18 Apr , 2018 by Matt Williams The first-ever detection of gravitational waves (which took place in September of 2015) triggered a revolution in astronomy. Not only did this event confirm a theory predicted by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity a century before, it also ushered in a new era where the mergers of distant black holes, supernovae, and neutron stars could be studied by examining their resulting waves.In addition, scientists have theorized that black hole mergers could actually...
