“DON’T COMPARE YOUR LIFE TO OTHERS’. YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIER JOURNEY IS ALL ABOUT” RICHARD BRANSON. I’m often described as joyful – and it’s a description I’m proud of. Most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me this happiness. But in fact it’s the reverse. I am successful, wealthy and connected because I am happy. I am able to find joy in most situations, because I live my own life. I’ve always marched to the beat of my own drum, and I can tell you there’s nothing more satisfying that being true to yourself. So, when I’m asked how

NATIVE AMERICANS CALL FOR RETHINK OF BERING STRAIT THEORY

NATIVE AMERICANS CALL FOR RETHINK OF BERING STRAIT THEORY. It’s one of the most contentious debates in anthropology today: Where did America’s first peoples come from — and when? The general scientific consensus is that a single wave of people crossed a long-vanished land bridge from Siberia into Alaska around 13,000 years ago.

ASHANTI EMPIRE

ASHANTI EMPIRE. The Ashanti (also spelled Asante) Empire (1701–1957) was an Akan empire and kingdom in what is now modern-day Ghana. The Ashanti Empire expanded from Ashanti to include the Brong-Ahafo, Central region, Eastern region, Greater Accra region, and Western region, of present-day Ghana.
