From Marine to Trainer: Ronald Fowlkes

In a time where we flock to the theater to see our favorite superheroes take shots at the latest buddy, it’s important not to forget real heroes who put their lives on the line. Even if their life is not at risk, there are everyday heroes that deserve just as much praise, if not more. Ronald Fawlkes is one of those heroes without question.

After graduating from high school, Ronald joined the U.S. Marine Corps where served from 1989 until 1993. While serving he took part in the First Gulf War, and later completed a tour in Iraq. Like any Marine, his training was extensive, some example of which were his attendance at the U.S. Army Parachute School, Advanced Navy-Marine Corps Parachute Insignia, a course in basic engineering, Marine Combat at the Marine Corps School of Infantry in addition to a taxing seven-week long Naval Special Warfare Foundation (NSWF) combat diver school. It goes without saying, while he was enlisted he received top-notch educations and experience in the four years he served.

In Iraq, he was a DOD contractor through the U.S. Army, working with the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) in executing infantry operations.

When Ronald left the Marines in 1993, he became an officer for the St. Louis County Police Department, and three years later spending another ten years with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. For the tail end of his career there, he would serve in their Human Rescue Team and in 2003, was appointed Team Lead.

Years of experience on his belt, one could only imagine what someone like Robert Fawlkes does in their free time. For Robert, he spends much of his time mentoring. A big fan of the sport, he is the off ice trainer for his son’s hockey team. He has succeeded in showing kids how important it is to take care of their equipment as well as getting them fit for the ice thanks to a physical regimen he developed.

Ronald is also able to use his personal stories to illustrate to the kids that there is someone out there, many in fact, who regularly put themselves on the line. This has allowed for Ronald to built rapport with the kids, added that he is often blunt and direct because of his military background.

Family is important to him, just as much and if not more than his country. The fact that he can help his community while doing something he loves. Spending more time with his son, he is also able to help others kinds make the right decisions, and with his background, he offers an entirely different perspective than others in their lives. Ronald Fawlkes is proof you don’t have to be super strong to be a hero, but super passionate doesn’t hurt.

The Habanero Pepper Adds the Flavor

Joel Friant is a man of many talents, but he is perhaps best known as a “foodpreneur” and the creator of The Original Habanero Shaker. He has been successful in the real estate market and has dabbled in the e-commerce market as well as published many works and has given many online seminars.

Friant developed the Original Habanero Shaker when he realized that there were no Habanero shakers in the market that did the hot pepper justice. He has even traveled the world to tastes the different kinds of hot peppers that are grown. Friant got his Habanero Shaker into many large grocery stores and marketed his Original Habanero Shaker on Amazon and on eBay.

Friant was not about to settle for less-than-best when it came it his Habanero seasonings, and he set out to change the way people see the Habanero pepper. When done right, the Habanero pepper in its dried form offers bold and rich flavoring to anything that it is added to. But it has to be done right. He is very selective hewn it comes to the types of Habanero peppers that make it into his shaker. Only the best Habanero peppers are harvested, and it makes all the difference.

The Original Habanero Shaker is made from 100 percent pure Habanero peppers, and it does not contain any extra additives, sugar, or salt. It is also gluten-free. The Habanero pepper measures 200,000 Scoville units which means that it’s very hot. The Jalapeno only reaches about 4,000 Scoville units. In dried form, the Habanero is not overly hot so most people can enjoy it. It is also convenient and makes a great compliment to any dish without being too overpowering.

The Original Habanero Shaker is made with the best Habanero peppers form high-quality farms, and each pepper is dried in the sun for maximum flavor. The Habanero pepper doesn’t just add great flavor to food, but it also has its health benefits.

The Habanero pepper contains very high amounts of capsaicin which is known to be a natural painkiller. Capsaicin also promoted the production of feel-good hormones.
