The Roa: Spiritus of Truth

by Maymay R.K. Myra

“Underneath the surface tremendous things remain hidden from sight that wait in silence for those who are ready to know them.”
– Maymay R.K. Myra

The Roa is a literal translation and interpretation of the ancient Kemetian wisdom tradition. Maymay spent over six years researching and laying out what he explains to be ontological based Kemetian teachings that explain the nature of existence. The Roa addresses many topics and concepts, then goes on to unify them into a single understanding of the operations of Mind. It is important to note that the ancient Kemetians considered man to be the apex of creation which they broke down into six parts; the Heart (Ib), the Ego (Ba), Spiritus (Ka), the Soul (Akh), one’s name (Ren), and the Etherial body (Sheut).

The teachings left by the ancient Kemetians were indeed the keys to wisdom from which all cultures have borrowed. They wisely encoded their knowledge within every aspect of their civilization to ensure it would remain in the world to one day be rediscovered. Their teachings have given us knowledge from what has been considered the last “Golden Age” in an effort to help establish a new foundation of knowledge once they could be properly interpreted. Within their language structure every symbol also represented a sound, number, a day in time, and a point in space (constellation). The way the ancient Kemetian language was structured and written was based on the tablet of Heaven (sky). That means if you knew what time of the year it was and where in the sky you were gazing in relation to the revolution of the stars, then you would literally be reading the book of the Heavens upon the celestial background of the sky which would reveal to you the knowledge they said came from the stars. This is also the reason the ancient Kemetians said their civilization was modeled after the Heavens â?? Kemet was indeed the cosmos brought down to earth and cast into form.

It is important also to realize that the Ancients used sacred geometry, math, art, science, and philosophy to properly interpret the works of Spiritus; thus their spiritual system was comprised of different facets of a unified understanding of existence. The foundation of their spiritual system was rooted in sacred geometry since all things in creation have form and shape. Therefore, there is nothing in creation that wasn’t viewed as geometrical, and no geometry that wasn’t musical, no music that wasn’t mathematical, and no math that wasn’t art, no art that wasn’t science, no science that wasn’t philosophical, and no philosophy that wasn’t spiritual. The ancient Kemetians truly had a 360 degree understanding of existence where all things start and end with Eternal Mind. â?¨

Going For It: Gay First Time Sports Romance

by Van Cole

What Happens When These Two Teammates Accidentally Get Married?

Connor Montana is a well-established player for the Packers, and just settling into his fame. He’s nobody’s star player, but he’s never a disaster either; he’s a solid mountain of a player that can be relied on as others take necessary risks around him. With very little reason to be shoved into the spotlight, he’s never really gotten accustomed to dealing with the press.

In stark contrast, meet Diego Delgado. The Packers’ newest acquisition, Diego has been proving himself all season as a force to be reckoned with – which is really helping to kill the backlash he’s had from being an openly gay player. A beacon for LGBT representation in the sport, Diego barely stops being followed, photographed and interviewed.

When celebrations get out of hand and see Connor and Diego accidentally married to one another, it’s a surprise for several reasonsâ?¦ not least because Connor is â??straight’, and everybody had long since assumed that Diego was actually dating fellow out gay Packers teammate Toby Mendez. Things get exponentially more complicated when the marriage is leaked to the media, changing Connor’s lifestyle from quiet fame into constant, inescapable attention.

Can Connor learn to cope with the unwavering media attention, or will it affect his game? Who leaked the marriage to the press? Most importantly, why did Connor and Diego marry in the first place – and can any hint of that drunken devotion be savedâ?¦?

New Methods for Measuring and Analyzing Segregation (The Springer Series on Demographic Methods and Population Analysis)

by Mark Fossett

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license.

This book introduces new methods for measuring and analyzing residential segregation.  It begins by placing all popular segregation indices in the “difference of group means” framework wherein index scores can be obtained as simple differences of group means on individual-level residential attainments scored from area racial composition.  Drawing on the insight that in this framework index scores are additively determined by individual residential attainments, the book shows that the level of segregation in a given city can be equated to the effect of group membership (e.g., race) on individual residential attainments.  This unifies separate research traditions in the field by joining the analysis of segregation at the aggregate level with the analysis of residential attainments for individuals.  Next it shows how segregation analysis can be extended by using multivariate attainment models to assess the impact of group membership (i.e., the level of segregation for a city) while including controls for other relevant individual characteristics (e.g., income, education, language, nativity, etc.).  It then illustrates how one can use these models to quantitatively assess the extent to which segregation traces to impacts of group membership on residential attainments versus other factors such as group differences in income.  The book then shows how micro-level attainment models can be used to study macro-level variation in segregation; specifically, by estimating multi-level models of individual residential attainments to assess how the effect of group membership (i.e., segregation index scores) vary with city characteristics.  Finally, the book introduces refined versions of popular indices that are free of the vexing problem of upward bias.  This improves the quality of segregation measurement directly at the level of individual cases and expanding the number of cases that can be safely included in empirical studies.

Mobilities of Knowledge (Knowledge and Space)

by Heike Jöns

This collection of essays examines how spatial mobilities of people and practices, technologies and objects, knowledge and ideas have shaped the production, circulation, and transfer of knowledge in different historical and geographical contexts. Targeting an interdisciplinary audience, Mobilities of Knowledge combines detailed empirical analyses with innovative conceptual approaches. The first part scrutinizes knowledge circulation, transfer, and adaption, focussing on the interpersonal communication process, early techniques of papermaking, a geographical text, indigenous knowledge in exploration, the genealogy of spatial analysis, and different disciplinary knowledges about the formation of cities, states, and agriculture. The second part analyses the interplay of mediators, networks, and learning by studying academic careers, travels, and collaborations within the British Empire, public internationalism in Geneva, the global transfer of corporate knowledge through expatriation, graduate mobility from the global south to the global north, and the international mobility of degree programs in higher education.This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.

Ukrainian Migration to the European Union: Lessons from Migration Studies (IMISCOE Research Series)

by Olena Fedyuk

This book brings together research findings from a variety of disciplines in this integrated study of the migration of Ukrainian nationals to the EU. It contextualizes and historicizes this migration against the background of the series of crises experienced by Ukraine and the wider region over the last thirty or so years, from the dissolution of the USSR, through EU border changes, to the failed economic reforms of independent Ukraine. The book reviews major publications in a variety of disciplines and in several languages, including Russian, Ukrainian and English. It provides a critical analysis of these authoritative sources, linking historical and contemporary texts to establish a longitudinal perspective on migration trends and practices. The spatial, temporal, gender and geopolitical aspects of migration are examined, with expert analysis of the implications for economics, immigration policies, and migration studies. The contributors also draw on national and international academic research and country-specific data to describe the experience of Ukrainian migration in six European countries: Poland, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain. These detailed portraits identify the principal trends and will help researchers, policy makers, and students to a better understanding of the dynamics of migration flow in the region as a whole.

“A timely volume covering many cases and many facets of Ukrainian mobility in the EU. A must have for all libraries.” Anna Triandafyllidou, Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies (RSCAS)

‘Is Ukraine the Mexico of Europe, I once asked. It is one of the most eminent migration cases to study. This book fills an acute knowledge gap and is a rich and important contribution.’ Franck Düvell, University of Oxford

“This collection offers a comprehensive historical and geographical analysis of various migratory patterns from Ukraine to different European countries. It is a must read for migration scholars and for anyone interested in this highly topical phenomenon.” Lena Näre, University of Helsinki
