The Gaza's Only Ballet School is Teaching Young Girls Order and Peace

Ballet -

an artistic dance form performed to music using precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. Classical ballet, which originated in Renaissance Italy and established its present form during the 19th century, is characterized by light, graceful, fluid movements and the use of pointe shoes. (Merriam Webster)
Now, definition aside;
Ballet requires practice, structure, and calm. It requires focus and work. All things are helpful in child development and growth. That's why so many parent in role their kids in dance classes right?

Now, remove structure from your environment.

Say you were born in the Gaza, an area known for destruction and change. You miss those pieces of development that allows you to grow as a child.

Now, bring a dance school into the community. A place where you can bring back consistency and order.

And that's exactly what Tamara, a Ukrainian that married to a Palestinian and living in Gaza, decided to do. Over 50 children are enrolled in her classes ages 5 to 8.
“She had been suffering since the 2012 war and her condition got worse after last year’s war,” said Manal Abu Muamar, a mother describing her daughters nightmares and a fear of going to sleep.
“After the first ballet class, she came home as happy as a bird. She did the moves she had learned and she was going around the house like a butterfly.”
In a world of sad news and change, I hope this provided a little light in your day.
@ButterflyBlu is smiling right now :)

Anyone else think this is the cutest dance class ever?

Five Dishes From The Middle East That Foodies HAVE TO Try
Have you ever tried Middle Eastern food before? Maybe you've had some lamb kebabs or some turmeric yellow rice pilaf. Maybe you've tried dips like hummus or baba ganoush or tasty pita sandwiches like falafel and koufta. If you have, you probably noticed how flavorful and healthy Middle Eastern food is. Implementing fresh staple ingredients like mint, lemon, olive, and parsley, it's a cuisine that truly makes the most of the food available in the region. If you haven't, don't worry. I've decided to throw together a list of my five favorite dishes - with links to my Palestinian grandmother's REAL recipes if you want to try making them yourself! Musakhan Sumac-seasoned chicken roasted over a bed of caramelized onion and pita bread My favorite part of this dish is the fact the bread and onion is thrown into the oven WITH the chicken, which results in an incredibly flavorful combination with a texture that's truly unique to the dish. You can check out my recipe for it here. Warak Enab Rolled grapeleaves filled with ground meat, rice, and seasonings and steamed in a tomato broth Okay, if you've never had a Greek dolma or Vietnamese bò lá lốt before, the idea of eating a leaf might be a little weird to you, but grapeleaves are so delectably tender, they make the perfect wrap for this savory dish. Eat it with some plain yogurt for a little extra 'yum'! You can check out my recipe for it here. Mujaddara Lentil-based rice pilaf topped with caramelized onions While usually paired with grilled meat and vegetables of some sort, this rice is so hearty that it could easy be made an entree of its own. The best part about mujaddara is that all of its ingredients are pretty easy to find without having to locate a local ethnic market. You can check out my recipe for it here. Kofta Pita Grilled lamb or beef, ground and mixed with parsley, onion, and mint and served in a sandwich with assorted vegetables and tahini dressing As it's probably the closest Middle Eastern cuisine gets to hamburgers, you can commonly see these being served up with fries at your local halal shop. However, I personally like pairing it with a freshly prepared fattoush or tabouli salad. You can check out my recipe for it here. Maftoul Acini-de-pepe pasta prepared in a spiced chicken broth and served with chickpeas Yes, chickpeas can be used for a whole lot more than your usual bowl of hummus. Plus the beans provide a punch of fiber and protein to the dish, making it far more balanced than your usual pasta bowl. You can check out my recipe for it here. So what's your favorite kind of Mediterranean food? Do you live next to any good Middle Eastern restaurants? Let me know what you love about Arabic food in the comments below, and for more tasty recipes from the region, follow my Traditional Middle Eastern Recipes collection.
S.Korean Soldiers Unwind With Ballet.
Guarding the North Korean border can be pretty stressful. However, the South Korean army's 25th Division has found a rather interesting way to unwind - practicing ballet. The soldiers attend a weekly government-provided class, where they swap boots for ballet shoes and practice classic choreography, including splits, pirouettes, and pliés, under the instruction of a coach from the Korean National Ballet. As soldiers assigned to monitor the Demilitarized Zone between the feuding countries, the environment can be pretty tense; however, Kim Joo-hyeok, one of the division's sergeants, sees ballet as a momentary escape from the front lines' hard reality: "Through ballet, I am able to stay calm and find balance as well as build friendships with my fellow soldiers." And, despite the oddity of being ballet-dancing soldiers, Lieutenant Colonel Heo Tae-sun, another participating student, insists that it's actually a terrific workout: "Ballet requires a great amount of physical strength and is very good for strengthening muscle, increasing flexibility, and correcting posture." Last year, the division gave an impressive performance of Tchaikovsky's 'Swan Lake' - so much so that they intend to reprise the show again this year. So what do you guys think? Is ballet uniquely helpful at all? Should your country's military start offering ballet classes too? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection. (Also, you can check out a clip with more footage of the soldier ballerinas hard at work in the embedded Korean news report embedded above!)

The extensions of EV battery swapping, from G V Sanjay Reddy’s standpoint
With Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman stating the government’s desire to establish a policy for battery swapping and outline interoperability standards, electric vehicle adoption, particularly in the public transportation segment, is projected to increase. G V Sanjay Reddy illustrates how EV battery as a service will evolve through innovative ideas.   “The electric vehicle industry has seen great growth in the previous year, and the government has recognised that EVs are the way forward in the mobility sector. As a result, the announcement of the Hon’ble Finance Minister to begin the battery swapping and standardisation process is laudable. This step will pave the way for the country’s electric vehicle and energy sectors to expand and prosper,” expresses G V Sanjay GV Reddy.  This Budget is focused on overall growth, with a strong focus on digitisation, electrification, infrastructure development, and ease of doing business, with the goal of propelling the Indian economy to long-term growth. “The battery-swapping announcement is a step in the right direction that will benefit a small group of people. However, a more comprehensive approach to creating electric mobility for the passenger vehicle market is required. Demand creation requires medium to long-term planning, and I believe that the fine print will have a ripple effect and passively stimulate the auto industry’s growth,” says G V Sanjay Reddy. He informs that the restrictions are in line with the government’s goal of making electric vehicles account for at least 30 per cent of private automobile sales by 2030, helping to cut pollution and India’s reliance on crude oil imports. Along with the 30 per cent aim for private automobiles, the government has set a 70 per cent target for commercial vehicles to be electric by 2030, as well as a 40 per cent target for buses and an 80 per cent target for two and three-wheelers. The battery swapping legislation is likely to promote the e-commerce delivery and three-wheeler transportation service sectors, as both are time-sensitive, making swapping a drained battery for a fully charged one a more practical option than on-the-spot recharging, which can take hours. Additionally, due to the lack of space in metropolitan areas for establishing large-scale charging stations, a battery swapping policy and interoperability standards will be developed. The commercial sector will be encouraged to build sustainable and creative Battery or Energy as a Service business model. The EV ecosystem will be more efficient as a result of this. The power ministry updated the rules for the country’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure in January, allowing owners to charge their vehicles using existing energy connections in their homes or offices. The government also authorised commercial entities to bid for government land for the purpose of constructing public charging stations (PCS) “The budget announcements will help accelerate the uptake of electric vehicles in the country,” says G V Sanjay Reddy. Battery swapping has been identified as the most effective solution for accelerating EV adoption in India by addressing range anxiety and hesitancy in adoption, as well as the practical aspects of setting up charging infrastructure – such as space constraints in urban areas for dedicated charging stations. This vast industrial switch indicates a shift from a fuel-intensive to a material-intensive energy system. Hundreds of millions of automobiles with large batteries inside will reach the roads in the coming decades, which will be thrilling to witness.  Source:- The Tribune India
Iced Turkish Café au Lait (with Vegan Alternatives)
Iced Turkish coffee has been my go-to coffee recipe for the past few months now. I spent a majority of my 20s working behind the counter at Starbucks, and ever since I've been having to brew coffee at home again, I've found myself getting a little too creative with what I can do with my coffee knowledge. I love Turkish coffee. I love the punch it packs, I love the smell of it boiling over my stove, and making it is so much fun. Different from your standard Mr. Coffee machine, it really feels like you're an active and important part of the brewing process, even moreso than with a French Press. If you don't want to have to get a brass coffee pot to enjoy the taste of an iced Turkish latte, you really don't have to! Follow this recipe, and you'll be enjoying a nice and refreshing (and incredibly aromatic) iced latte inspired by the flavors of the Middle East. ------------------------------------ Iced Turkish Café au Lait 1/2 cup milk (or any non-dairy milk. I usually use Silk soy milk, unsweetened.) 1/2 cup half-and-half (or any non-dairy creamer. I usually use Trader Joe's Organic Soy Milk Creamer.) 1 tablespoon sugar 6 whole cardamom pods, crushed 1 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled (I prefer using the Turkish coffee brewing method, which I described in this card: http://www.vingle.net/posts/522373-Making-Arabic-Coffee-Kahwa-at-Home-Bonus-Fortune-Telling-Video -- However, any brewing method of your preference should work for this recipe.) 1. In a small saucepan stir together the milk, the half-and-half, the sugar, and the cardamom pods, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, and let it cool. 2. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve set over a small pitcher, stir in the coffee, and chill the mixture, covered, for 20 minutes, or until it is cold. 3. Divide the iced café au lait between 2 stemmed glasses filled with ice cubes.

Shakar Lama (شكرلمة‬‎), Cardamom & Almond Tea Cookies from Iraq
If it hasn't been completely obvious by what kind of recipes I tend to post, I am completely in love with desserts and other sweet flavors that incorporate very tea-inspired ingredients. Whether it's lavender, orange blossom, bergamot, or cardamom, I love the unique fragrance it gives recipes and the subtle nod it sends to some of my favorites in Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisine. These cookies, simple butter cookies enhanced with the flavor of cardamom, are called quite a few names in the Middle East. In Iraq, they are called Shakar Lama and topped with a slivered almond or a roasted pistachio. In Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon, they are referred to as Hab-El-Hal and sometimes the nut is exchanged for powdered sugar or toasted sesame seeds. Whatever you call it or however you decide to garnish it, you will still end up with a completely satisfying plate of cookies that makes a perfect partner for your favorite cup of tea du jour! (I highly recommend serving it alongside a pot of this Lebanese cinnamon-anise tea.) INGREDIENTS: 1 cup rendered (clarified) butter or ghee (You should be able to find clarified butter at a grocery store like Trader Joe's, but check out this video if you want to clarify the butter you might already have at home.) 1 1/2 cups sugar 3 eggs 4 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 teaspoons cardamom powder Roasted pistachios or almonds for garnish, optional 2 tablespoons powdered sugar for garnish, optional DIRECTIONS: 1) Cream butter, eggs, and sugar. 2) Mix flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt. Add gradually to the butter mixture. 3) Add milk or water if needed to form dough (consistency of bread dough). Roll dough 1/2" thick and cut with cookie cutter. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes in an oven preheated to 375 degrees. 4) If garnishing with nuts, press one slivered almond or one pistachio to the center of each cookie halfway through baking. If garnishing with powdered sugar, sprinkle it on top of each cookie once they have fully cooled.
What 1 Professional Ballerina Eats All Day
Ballerina's are known for their incredible bodies and the even more incredible things that they can do with them. But how does one keep in that perfect shape under a leotard that hides nothing. Fueling the body while maintaining a small figure is the ultimate struggle for professional ballerinas like Lauren Fadeley, a principal dancer at the Pennsylvania Ballet, who sat down with PopSugar to explain how she manages that tiny frame. The Power of Snacking Lauren is a big supporter of grazing. Eating a little bit constantly throughout the day works better for her than a full meal. She typically starts her day of with fruit, nuts, and coffee and then is sure to keep her bag filled with healthy snacks like protein bars and fresh veggies to munch on during her breaks. Once practice is over, Lauren finally has her big meal which is a lot of lean proteins and veggies (PopSugar says that spaghetti squash with a ground turkey tomato sauce is her favorite) This all refuels her body and preps her for the next day's grueling schedule - where she does it all over again! Beat Bloat Those leotards are unforgiving. There are no fat-jeans or baggy t-shirts in ballet. Feeling bloat-free is important for many dancers. As Lauren says, "We have to wear a leotard all day long and stare at ourselves in a mirror — that can get a little hard!" That's why she has chosen to follow a mostly Paleo and gluten-free diet during the week. It helps her feel less weighed-down and her tummy manages to stay flatter in times of need. Go Ahead and Indulge Lauren may stick to a strict diet during the week but weekends are another story. She's a big fan of tacos and saves them for her weekend treats. During the week, she makes a point to include dark chocolate in her snacks and Paleo-friendly desserts like coconut milk ice cream after dinner. Her best advice? Listen to your body. "I eat what my body tells me to," she says. "There'll be times when I just need to eat a bagel to get me through a show." So listen to your body, feed it what it needs, and lace up those pointe shoes!
Difference between Inverter & UPS? | Orrofast
What is UPS? An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is a device that allows an Electronic Devices to keep running for at least a short period of time when incoming power is interrupted. As long as utility power is flowing, it also replaces and maintains the energy storage. (Uninterruptible Power Supply) A device that provides battery backup when the electrical power fails or drops to an unacceptable voltage level. Small UPS systems provide power for a few minutes; enough to power down electronic devices in an orderly manner, while larger systems have enough battery for several hours. What is Inverter? Inverter is power electronics that regulate the flow of electrical power. Fundamentally, an inverter undertakes the DC-to-AC conversion by switching the direction of a DC input back and forth very rapidly. As a result, a DC input becomes an AC output. In other words, Inverter is a circuit that inverts the direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). An inverter uses electric supply from an AC source to charge a ORROFAST Inverter Battery. During the power fail ure, the inverter takes the DC supply from the ORROFAST Inverter Battery, converts it into AC supply and provides the power supply to the electrical appliances. Conclusion: The UPS is more efficient as compared to the inverter. The UPS provides the electric backup to the appliances without delay and fluctuation. And the inverter is a medium between the primary power supply and the ORROFAST Inverter Battery. How does an Inverter work? Fundamentally, an inverter undertakes the DC-to-AC conversion by switching the direction of a DC input back and forth very rapidly. As a result, a DC input becomes an AC output. In other words, Inverter is a circuit that inverts the direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). An inverter uses electric supply from an AC source to charge a ORROFAST Inverter Battery. How does a UPS work? The main parts of a typical UPS system are rectifier, ORROFAST Tubular Battery, inverter and controller. The rectifier converts the AC supply in DC supply to charge the battery. The battery is connected to the inverter which converts the DC output of battery into AC and supply to the connected device or system. The controller is provided to control the operation of the entire system. FAQs What are the 3 types of UPS? UPS is of three types as − Offline UPS Online UPS Standby or interruptive UPS Why is UPS called an Inverter? These devices work for the same intention to converts DC into AC UPS and inverter are both used to provide backup power to the electrical appliances. What are the main problems of UPS? A UPS provides less backup time. UPS has relatively more complex circuit. It is more expensive than an inverter. Do UPS & INVERTER need maintenance? Due to more wiring and need of distilled water in ORROFAST Inverter Batteries, the inverters require relatively more & frequent maintenance. Whereas UPS are almost maintenance free, except the battery.
Halawet El-Jibn (حلاوة الجبن), Dessert Rolls of Sweet Syrian Cheese
I love any Middle Eastern dessert that is made with sweet cheese and semolina, and this one is definitely high on the must-make list for all of you who might just be starting out making and learning about the desserts of the region. I love the little pockets filled with sweet Syrian cheese and just enough syrup to make this a very decadent dessert. If you don't live in close proximity to a Middle Eastern market, I will make sure to point out where you can make easy (and really common!) substitutions with ingredients from your local grocery store in the ingredients section. Halawet El-Jibn, Syrian Cheese Dessert Rolls (Makes around 12 rolls) INGREDIENTS: 1/3 cup butter 1/2 cup semolina 1/2 cup farina (Farina is the same thing as Cream of Wheat.) 1 pound fresh Syrian (Akkawi) or mozzarella cheese, sliced (You could also do a mix of mozzarella and ricotta cheeses.) 2 cups ashta custard (or marscapone cheese) 2 tablespoons pistachios, ground To make Attar (thin Arabic simple syrup) - 2 cups sugar 1 1/2 cup water 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon orange blossom water (or rose water), optional DIRECTIONS: 1) Start by making the simple syrup (also known as 'attar'). Mix the sugar and water and bring it to a boil. Add lemon juice and boil for 7 more minutes. When cool, add orange blossom water. 2) In a large pot over medium heat, cook butter, semolina, and farina for 3 minutes. Add 1 cup of attar to the pot, stir, and cook for 3 minutes. 3) Add mozzarella to the pot, and cook, stirring vigorously, for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Pour 1/2 cup attar onto a baking sheet and spread out to coat all sides. 4) Pour cheese mixture onto the baking sheet, and using the back of a wooden spoon, spread out to the size of the baking sheet. Cool for 15 minutes. 5) Run a knife down the baking sheet lengthwise, making two cuts in the sheet and forming three columns. Then make three more cuts width-wise, so you have 12 equal-size pieces. 6) Place 3 tablespoons ashta custard or marscapone at one end of each piece, roll, place seam side down on a plate.To serve, sprinkle each piece with ground pistachios and a drizzle of the remaining attar syrup.

Ballet-inspired style
Tutus. Blush colors. High buns. Flowy skirts. It's all part of the world of ballet. But ballet fashion doesn't just belong in the world of barre and pirouettes. Ballet fashion can easily be incorporated into everyday style. Here are some ways you can feel like a ballerina with your style, even if you have never heard of Baryshnikov (the famous Russian ballet dancer). High buns High buns, also known as ballerina buns, are a great way to incorporate a little ballet style into your look. High buns are also great as a second-day hairstyle or if it is really hot outside and you want to stay cool in fashion. Gather your hair into a high ponytail. If you have long hair, wrap the hair around the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. If you don't have very long hair (like me), you can use a bun maker (it looks like a mesh donut) and slip your ponytail through the hole. Wrap your hair around the bun maker and secure with bobby pins. Finish the hairstyle with hairspray for a sleek and sophisticated look. Ballet pink Wearing ballet pink instantly adds a ballet vibe to your outfit. Look for pieces that are light pink and have a light, airy feel. Here, here and here are some pieces that can get you started or give you inspiration for other ballet pink pieces. Ballet flats Keep the ballet inspiration going all the way to your toes with ballet flats. You can go for the classic version or go even further with ballet flats with the ankle straps that make them look even more like pointe shoes. Tutus Yes, tutus can be worn as a serious fashion piece, not just for costume parties. The key to making the tutu work for everyday fashion is all in the styling. If you want to wear a tutu, keep the rest of your outfit very simple. Go for a big fashion statement with the tutu! Just because you don't spend hours working on one ballet move doesn't mean you can't wear ballet-inspired pieces of clothing. Let your inner ballerina come out!
