Dhol Of Punjabi

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fadi Ayat @ 8:39 pm

Dohl

The Dohl is a percussion instrument that is traditional to Indian culture. It is a double ended barrel drum – although some forms of the Dhol may have straight sides. The heads can be either synthetic or made of goat skin or raw hide. The Dohl is tuned with the use of bolts. It is considered as similar to the “Dholka”, otherwise known as the American Dhol, it is also similar to the pan-american instrument the Tambora. In Qawwali music, the term Dhol is usually refers to a similar but smaller drum that is used with the smaller tabla drum as a replacement for the left hand tabla drum.
Dhols tend to vary in sizes depending on the region they originate from. The difference in sizes came about to accommodate the different needs of the instrument players. Dhols found in Punjab are generally smaller because they need to fit the needs of player who tend to do energetic dances while playing the instrument, while in India and Pakistan the Dhol remains big in order to preserve its loud bass tone. The Dhol is used as a traditional accompaniment to traditional dances like the Punjabi dance of the Bhangra, the traditional dance of the Gujarat, Raas and the religious music of Sufism, Qawwali.
The rum structure is composed of a barrel (traditionally made of wood) and its open ends are covered in goat skin, any other animal hide or with a synthetic material. The tone of the Dhol is adjusted with the use of interlaced ropes located on its sides or with the use of nuts and bolts. The degree of tightness of the skin can sufficiently alter the tone of the instrument. People who play the Dhol are referred to as “Dohl players” or Dholis. In modern Punjabi music, Dhols with synthetic coverings are commonplace. A smaller version of the Dhol is known as the Dholka or the Dholki.
Traditionally, the Dhol is played with the use of two wooden sticks, which are most of the time made of bamboo and cane wood. The American Dohl is played with the hands and is placed in between the knees or on the lap of the player.
The Dhol is a very important historically. Before the advent of electronically recorded music Dhol players were much sought after in India and they were asked in play in both formal and informal events. Other than in India, the Dohl has gained much popularity in Fiji, the United Kingdom, and Australia as well as in North America.

American Dictatorship

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fadi Ayat @ 8:11 pm

BBC Reporter Greg Palast: “Alex Jones is a national treasure, a light breaking through the electronic Berlin Wall of the US media establishment.”

American Dictators is a 90+ minute expose chronicling the degeneration of America’s political process. Alex Jones rips away layer after layer of the false left-right paradigm and finally reveals the 2004 election for what it is — stage managed theater that would make Shakespeare proud.

American Dictators details:

* That Bush and Kerry are closely related on both sides of their families, * That Bush the Skull and Kerry the Bone have both sworn an oath to a secret society with deep connections to organized crime, intelligence agencies, and the occult. * That the “Order of Death” known as Skull and Bones has its members at the highest levels of every sector of the US economy — from banking to government.

Jones travels back to the elite encampment in Northern California, the Bohemian Grove where he infiltrated and got the only video footage of the bizarre rituals conducted by the bushes and others.

Denver-based journalist Eileen Welsome reveals how as a reporter for the tiny Albuquerque Tribune (circulation 35,000) she uncovered one of the country’s great Cold War secrets: the U.S. government had knowingly exposed thousands of human Guinea pigs with radiation poisoning including 18 Americans who had plutonium injected directly into their bloodstream. [includes rush transcript]


In a Massachusetts school, seventy-three disabled children were spoon-fed oatmeal laced with radioactive isotopes.In an upstate New York hospital, an eighteen-year-old woman believing she was being treated for a pituitary disorder, was injected with plutonium.

At a Tennessee clinic, 829 pregnant women were served “vitamin cocktails” containing radioactive iron, as part of their regular treatment.

No these are not acts of terrorism by common criminals.

These are just some of the secret human radiation experiments that the U.S. government conducted on unsuspecting Americans for decades as part of its atom bomb program.

In a gruesome plot that spanned 30 years, doctors and scientists working with the US atomic weapons program, exposed thousands of unwilling and unknowing Americans to radiation poisoning to study its effects.

For years, the experiments by the U.S. government and the identities of their human guinea pigs were covered up.

Then after a six-year investigation, investigative reporter Eileen Welsome uncovered the names of 18 people who were injected with plutonium in the 1940s without their knowledge by federal government scientists. In 1993, she published her finding in The Albuquerque Tribune and later received the Pulitzer Prize for her work.

Another six years later, Welsome published “The Plutonium Files: America’s Secret Medical Experiments in the Cold War.” The book gives a detailed account of the unspeakable scientific trials conducted by the U.S. government that reduced thousands of American men, women, and even children to nameless specimens.

Is the water your drinking killing you? It is if it’s fluoridated! Drink Natural spring water instead. You can usually buy a gallon for under a dollar. Make sure there is no fluoride in it! Also, don’t use regular toothpaste (it contains around 1,000 ppm of fluoride). They even tell you on the side of the toothpaste tube to “contact a poison control center immediately” if you swallow your toothpaste.
