This map should be included in every history book.
This is why I don’t like the term Native American or even like Indigenous People. It cancels the numerous different groups of people that lived here
Don’t forget this.
The reason that pre-colonized American history is taught in a short breath, in a way that is totally unlike how European history is taught (“yah there were these tribes who lived off the land and were so noble and primitive until Christopher Columbus came and things got interesting” vs. “There were complex cultures and different people in different areas who traded and fought exactly like what was going on across the Atlantic at the time, so for example there were extensive trade routes between A and B in this territory while X and Y made an alliance to unite against Z, and then this important ruler, inventor, artist lived… etc etc etc”) is racism, pure and simple. Anyone who says otherwise (PARTICULARLY if they claim that nothing interesting was going on or try to state that the Americas were purely “primitive” or lesser in some fashion” they are either lying or terribly misinformed.
This is why “Native American” is not a one-size-fits-all banner. This is why you sound just as stupid saying someone was or is “Cherokee or Sioux, or Mohawk or whatever” as you sound saying “They were English, or German, or Irish or whatever”. They are distinct cultures who lived in distinct areas and had disparate histories. And, due to horrendous colonialism and blatant white washing, these are repressed histories.
So do your homework, especially if you live in the Americas and are from a background that at any point contained immigrants (and don’t you look at me and say you’re “Just American” because you can claim somebody on the Mayflower because I will explain you many things). They don’t teach this how they should, so you must educate yourself.
For many people, the best part about having cereal for breakfast is that deliciously flavored milk left over at the bottom of the bowl after all the cereal has been eaten. If you do not want to eat—or throw away—all that cereal just to get to this special milk, Aaron Gemon has a brilliant solution for you. You can make your own “breakfast cereal tea”.
Technically, there is no tea in this awesome beverage, but it does involve teabags. After emptying a regular teabag of tea leaves, Gemon filled it with crushed up or blended cereal. To produce the desired cereal-soaked milk, simply dunk this cereal teabag into hot milk. Gemon has even gone so far as to convert the cereal box into a nifty tea bag dispenser.
View the entire tutorial on how to make breakfast cereal teabags on Instructables.
:O now it’s a little bit clear
OMG I ACTUALLY KIND OF HATE TEA AND THIS IS AWESOME ;__;
Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
