Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc on the upper park at Meridian Hill (Malcolm X) Park Joan of Arc, or Jeanne d'Arc (1412–30 May 1431) is a national heroine of France and a saint of the Catholic Church. She stated that she had visions, which she believed came from God, and she used these to inspire Charles VII's troops to retake most of his dynasty's former territories which had been under English and Burgundian dominance during the Hundred Years' War. She had been sent to the siege of Orleans by the then-uncrowned King Charles VII as part of a relief mission. She gained prominence when she overcame the disregard of veteran commanders and ended the siege in only nine days. Several more swift victories led to Charles VII's coronation at Reims and settled the disputed succession to the throne. The renewed confidence of Charles VII's forces outlasted Joan of Arc's own brief career. She refused to leave the field when she was wounded during an attempt to recapture Paris that autumn. Hampered by court intrigues, she led only minor companies from then on, and fell prisoner during a skirmish near Compiegne the following spring. A politically motivated trial by the English convicted her of heresy. The English regent, John, Duke of Bedford, had her burnt at the stake in Rouen. She had become the leader of her faction at the age of seventeen, but died at the age of nineteen. Some twenty-four years later, Joan's aged mother, Isabelle, convinced the Inquisitor-General and Pope Callixtus III to reopen Joan's case, resulting in an appeal which overturned the original conviction by the English. Pope Benedict XV canonized her on 16 May 1920. Joan of Arc has remained an important figure in Western culture. From Napoleon to the present, French politicians of all leanings have invoked her memory. Major writers and composers, including Shakespeare, Voltaire, Schiller, Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Twain, Shaw, and Brecht, have created works about her, and depictions of her continue to be prevalent in film, television, and song. The period that preceded Joan of Arc's career was one of the lowest points in French history. The prolonged war had produced much suffering among the population. Much of the northern portion of the kingdom was controlled by English troops, and there was a likely possibility that France would be joined with England as a "Dual Monarchy" under an English king. The French king at the time of Joan's birth, Charles VI, suffered bouts of insanity and was often unable to rule. Two of the king's relatives, Dukes John the Fearless of Burgundy and Louis of Orleans, quarreled over the regency of France and the guardianship of the royal children. The dispute escalated to accusations of an extramarital affair with Queen Isabeau of Bavaria and kidnappings of the royal children, and culminated when John the Fearless ordered the assassination of Louis in 1407. The factions loyal to these two men became known as the Armagnacs and the Burgundians. The English king, Henry V, took advantage of this turmoil and invaded France, won a dramatic victory at Agincourt in 1415, and proceeded to capture northern French towns. The future French king, Charles VII, assumed the title of dauphin as heir to the throne at the age of fourteen, after all four of his older brothers had died. His first significant official act was to conclude a peace treaty with John the Fearless in 1419. This ended in disaster when Armagnac partisans murdered John the Fearless during a meeting under Charles's guarantee of protection. The new duke of Burgundy, Philip the Good, blamed Charles and entered an alliance with the English. Large sections of France fell to conquest. In 1420, Queen Isabeau of Bavaria concluded the Treaty of Troyes, which granted the royal succession to Henry V and his heirs in preference to her son Charles. This agreement revived rumors about her supposed affair with the late duke of Orleans and raised fresh suspicions that the dauphin was a royal bastard rather than the son of the king. Henry V and Charles VI died within two months of each other in 1422, leaving an infant, Henry VI of England, the nominal monarch of both kingdoms. Henry V's brother John of Lancaster, the duke of Bedford, acted as regent. By 1429, nearly all of northern France, and some parts of the southwest, were under foreign control. The English ruled Paris and the Burgundians ruled Reims. The latter city was important as the traditional site of French coronations and consecrations, especially since neither claimant to the throne of France had been crowned. The English had laid siege to Orleans, a city situated at a strategic location along the Loire River which made it the last major obstacle to an assault on the remaining French heartland. In the words of one modern historian, "On the fate of Orleans hung that of the entire kingdom. No one was optimistic that the city could long withstand the siege. Joan of Arc was born in the village of Domremy in 1412 to Jacques d'Arc aWestern Movie Set

Maventalk: True West Although, one may think that there was no justice in the American Wild West, there actually was justice. Just like today, you had the right for a quick trial, and a fast one, undoubtedly. The court house (as seen in this image that reads “The Court House” and below, Saloon”) was built in the Saloon and not to cure your hangover but to hang you over. In plain words, you shoot now, you’re hanged now. How’s that for justice! And “after-parties” there were “neck parties”. Awesome, ha? After Judge Hammerstone, in a blink of an eye, sentenced you to the ropey Joshua’s tree, next to the Opera House (see image) with live music (OK, not music, music, but music nonetheless) you’re truly have the right to remain silent. None of that “dream-team lawyers” “I want to call my lawyer” “innocent until proven guilty” “ 20 years on a death-row, last minute Governor Call” etc. While many were legitimate criminals accordingly sentenced for first-degree murder, some were grabbed, regardless of guilt, by mobs of hundreds and subjected to “necktie parties". Cowboys: The myth Thanks to Hollywood, we associate the word Cowboy with Western [Spaghetti] movies and its fake-ass-heroes like John “Awkward” Wayne, Gary Cooper, and Clint “Blondie” Eastwood’s Dollar Trilogy, epic Spaghetti western films that were cooked by real Italian Spaghetti Chef Sergio Leone (a little help of Spanish cuisine not to be ignored here) using the Good, Bad and Ugly ingredients and further sweetl-sauced with the famous film score, including its main theme (come on, you know it so well, hum it along; when a kid or a teenager, not exactly sure, I used to hum it when played Cowboys and Indians, or when encountered by some trouble, as sign of impending blow to the bad…and, well, the ugly) and, of course, it-would- be-sin not to mention the Director of photography Tonino Delli Colli, who was responsible for the film's sweeping widescreen cinematography that revolutionized film making, thank you; my vote for “the best-directed film of all time”, for Leone's unique perspective that enables the audience to be closer to the character as we see what he sees. So who were really these cowboys? How about this? They were Blacks (a black cowboy? Eddie Murphy as a cowboy?), Hispanics (now, wait a minute, you!) Native Americans (I’m warning ya!), and even Britons (Nigel-with-bad-teeth? That’s enough!” and, nearly all were in their twenties or teens (such as the lean-not-so-mean Billy The Kid, a petty criminal who became legend for killing pedestrians. Feel cheated? Why none of them characters ever have been portrayed as a Wild West Hero? The answer to that would be: For one, the faggots and pedophiles in Hollywood, including writers, directors, and producers were greedy-racist-white-trash who loved whites and blue eyes. Second, movie making and story-telling was white men-made industry and therefore the white was in charge of movie making and character casting. Plus, the white men were in the right place in the right time since they could act and fake better than in any other job or business. Most of them boys were Italians, Jews and Polacks which makes it more ironic. And, hey, you didn’t expect Martin Scorsese to have had cast Harry Pottier instead of De Niro in Taxi then, and Will Smith to replace Ma-Boy Leo De Caprio, now, did you? Back to our dear cowboys, if you will… Here is another shocker. Central to the myth and the reality of the West is the American cowboy. His real life was a hard one and revolved around two annual roundups, spring and fall, the subsequent drives to market (yes, the Moo-Market, the California Cow) , and the time off in the cattle towns spending his hard earned money on food, clothing, gambling, and prostitution (sounds like today’s truck drivers or blue collar workers, I’d say). During winter, many cowboys hired themselves out to ranches near the cattle towns, where they repaired and maintained equipment and buildings. The rest is HiStory. Go to maventalk.com for more.
• The book that takes a comprehensive look at the threat to our food supply from genetic engineering.
• 15,000 copies sold in the first six months.
• Includes new studies about the dangers of genetically engineered food.
• Refutes the "feed the poor" propaganda spread by agribusinesses.
• Is both an expose and educational primer on this controversial technology that is already a part of every American's diet.
• Explains the dangers of these foods to ourselves and our environment in easily understood terms.
Picture a world?
• Where the french fries you eat are registered as a pesticide, not a food.
• Where vegetarians unwittingly consume fish genes in their tomatoes.
• Where corn plants kill monarch butterflies.
• Where soy plants thrive on doses of herbicide that kill every other plant in sight.
• Where multinational corporations own the life forms that farmers grow and legally control the farmers' actions.
That world exists
These things are all happening, and they are happening to you.
Genetically engineered foods--plants whose genetic structures are altered by scientists in ways that could never occur in nature--are already present in many of the products you buy in supermarkets, unlabeled, unwanted, and largely untested. The threat of these organisms to human and environmental health has caused them to be virtually banned in Europe, yet the U.S. government, working hand-in-hand with a few biotech corporations, has actively encouraged their use while discouraging labeling that might alert consumers to what they are eating. The authors show what the future holds and give you the information you need to preserve the independence and integrity of our food supply.
What can you do?
First, inform yourself.
Genetically Engineered Food: Changing the Nature of Nature is the first book to take a comprehensive look at the many ramifications of this disturbing trend.
Authors Martin Teitel and Kimberly Wilson explain what genetic engineering is and how it works, then explore the health risks involved with eating organisms never before seen in nature. They address the ecological catastrophe that could result from these modified plants crossing with wild species and escaping human control altogether, as well as the economic devastation that may befall small farmers who find themselves at the mercy of mega-corporations for their livelihood. Taking the discussion a step further, they consider the ethical and spiritual implications of this radical change in our relationship to the natural world, showing what the future holds and giving you the information you need to act on your own or to join others in preserving the independence and integrity of our food supply.
