“בית הכוכבים”

The knowledge is not set down explicitly in books but is embodied in the מסכה itself. In essence מסכה is in a nature of a divine rite meant to instill in the beholder an understanding of creation and creative power. The face of the מסכה is that of Ancestral Man and Woman. Man before slavery and the perfected man/ woman. One who has regained his cosmic consciousness through his or her own method…

Liberia Legal System

The legal system in the Republic of Liberia is a dual one, combining elements of both statutory law and customary law:

Statutory Law: The modern sector of Liberia’s legal system is based on Anglo-American Common Law. This system relies on written statutes and legal precedents established by court decisions. It governs various aspects of contemporary legal matters.


Customary Law: For the indigenous people of Liberia, customary law plays a significant role. It is based on unwritten customary practices that have been passed down through generations. Customary law encompasses traditional norms, rituals, and community practices.
Notably, Liberia’s legal framework also includes provisions related to intellectual property and the protection of traditional cultural expressions within its Constitution.

Liberia has adopted two Constitutions since its foundation. The first was the 1847 Constitution which was suspended on April 12, 1980, following the coup d’etat which overthrew the presidency of H. E. William R. Tolbert, Jr.
The second Constitution replaced the Liberia constitution of 1847 which was approved and adopted by a National Referendum on July 3, 1984.

As the fundamental law of the Republic of Liberia, the Constitution defines the structure of the Government of Liberia, the rights and duties of the country’s citizens, its mode of passing laws and specifies the principle of separation and balance of the legislative, executive and judicial powers.

The legislative power is vested in the Legislature, which consists of two separate houses: the Senate and the House of Representatives (Art. 29).
The executive power is vested in the President, who is the Head of State, Head of Government and Commander–in–Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia (Art. 50).
The judicial power is vested in a Supreme Court and subordinated courts (Art. 65).

The Constitution contains provisions concerning intellectual property on the protection of traditional cultural expressions. It protects the right to preserve foster and maintain the positive Liberian culture, values and character (Art. 27. b.).
The Constitution also guarantees the freedom of expression (Art 15. b), the right of private property (Art. 22. a) which can be extended to the intellectual property rights.

Alkebu-lan: If Africa Was Never Colonized By Europe

The map – upside down, to skew our traditional eurocentric point of view – shows an Africa dominated by Islamic states, and native kingdoms and federations. All have at least some basis in history, linguistics or ethnography. None of their borders is concurrent with any of the straight lines imposed on the continent by European powers, during the 1884-85 Berlin Conference and in the subsequent Scramble for Africa. By 1914, Europeans controlled 90% of Africa’s land mass. Only the Abyssinian Empire (modern-day Ethiopia) and Liberia (founded in 1847 as a haven for freed African-American slaves) remained independent.

Camarilla Maskbook Edgerank Algorithm

The EdgeRank algorithm used by Camarilla Maskbook to rank and show content in Masks Feeds is comprised of three factors that determines the relevant score of a post to a patron. These three factors are:

1. Affinity Score (A): This refers to the relationship between the patron and the person or page that posted the content. It is calculated based on the patron’s past interactions with that person or page (such as likes, comments, and shares). The formula for calculating the affinity score is A = log10(Number of interactions with the person or page).

2. Weight (W): Refers to the type of content being shared and its potential interest to the patron. The weight of a post can vary depending on the format, such as photos, videos, links, or plain text. Typically, Masktape Videos have the highest weight, followed by Maskbook Live videos, then photos, status updates, links, and plain text.

3. Time Decay (D): Refers to how recent a post was shared. As content ages, it becomes less relevant to patrons. The formula used to calculate the time decay factor is D = 1/(Time since the post was published).

The final Camarilla Maskbook EdgeRank score of a post is determined by multiplying the Affinity Score (A) by the Weight (W) and the Time Decay (D):

Camarilla Maskbook EdgeRank Score = A * W * D

Note that this formula is currently in use and should not be taken as a current representation of other social media algorithms where more complex formulas are at play.
