Down with Brawn, Up with Brains: How the New Economy Affects…

What is happening is a fundamental economic shift that is resulting in a profound social change between the sexes. As usual this shift started happening within the black community first and has now filtered out to the general population. We are moving from an industrial economy and all of those great paying but physically demanding male dominated manufacturing jobs. Jobs that supported families black and white and built communities towards a knowledge based economy which requires a different set of skills. Skills that women and specifically black women are attaining at greater rates than their male cohorts.

After consulting with focus groups, The Bank of Canada removed the image of a woman who was deemed to be too “Asian-looking” from the back of its new hundred-dollar bill. The original image was of a woman with Asian features using a microscope; after the revision, a woman with an ear-length feathered hairstyle and fair-skin is shown peering into the eyepiece of a microscope, i.e., a white women was used

New Orleans Louisiana Shrimp Etouffee…

I made Shrimp Etouffee’ for a southern style banquet in 1986. This one is just Louisiana Shrimp recipe I have. The shrimp are great! Flavorful, tender, great! I figured what better dish to give the Shrimp a test run than the New Orleans Cuisine classic, Etouffee. Be forewarned, this dish is not for the health conscious; as a matter of fact, you may want to keep a defibrillator in the dining room. There’s butter and plenty of it!
I always buy shell on shrimp, why? For the same reason I buy bone in cuts of meat. Stock. The amount of shrimp you’re using for this recipe will produce just enough Shrimp Stock, plus a little extra (recipe below). Shrimp stock only needs to cook for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
