Saudi cleric says 'women driver ban guards against evil'

Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah al-Sheikh, in a speech delivered Wednesday in the western city of Medina, said the issue of giving women the right to drive should not be "one of society's major concerns". The kingdom's most senior cleric called for "the matter to be considered from the perspective of protecting society from evil" which, according to him, included letting women drive.

Making Arabic Coffee (Kahwa) at Home + Bonus Fortune Telling Video!
The greatest experience a true 'caffeine head' can have is sitting down to a cup of Arabic coffee. Arabic coffee, often referred to as 'Turkish coffee' as well, is something my grandfather used to jokingly insist put "hair on your chest" based on its strength and thicker mouthfeel. Instead of straining the ground coffee through a French press or a standard Mr. Coffee, the coffee used for Arabic style coffee is ground into a fine powder and boiled into the water. It's definitely quite a kick! One of my favorite parts of drinking Arabic coffee growing up was having my fortune read to me from the remaining coffee grains that rested at the bottom of my cup. After we're done drinking our coffee, we flip over the small demitasse cup we're drinking it from and allow for the rest of the coffee to collect in the saucer. When you flip it back over, the 'fortune teller' of the family looks for symbols in the grinds and tells you what to expect in your future. This is, of course, just for fun, but it doesn't make it any less exciting! (Check out the attached video of a Syrian family reading one another's fortunes to see what I mean.) Here is a quick recipe for how to make Arabic coffee at home. If you don't want to invest in a brass coffee pot, you can use a regular saucepan for a similar result. ----------------------------------------------------------- Arabic Coffee (Kahwa) 2 cups water 3 to 5 tsp. sugar 6 tsp. Turkish coffee (or any medium to dark-roasted coffee ground to a powder) 3 cardamom pods or 1/8 tsp. cardamom powder 1. In a brass coffee pot or regular saucepan, bring water and sugar to boil. 2. Add coffee and cardamom, stirring constantly. When mixture comes to a boil and becomes frothy, remove from fire and stir until froth has receded. Repeat this process two more times. 3. After the coffee has foamed and subsided for the third time, pour into Arabic coffee cups (or demitasse). Serve the coffee very hot - a minute or two after pouring in cups to allow the grounds to settle in the bottom. Note: The amount of coffee and sugar may be increased or decreased to suit your taste. Makes six servings. ----------------------------------------------------------- Serve this with a fresh plate of baklava (using the recipe I posted in my 'Middle-Eastern Recipes' collection) and a small bowl of Jordan almonds for a complete Arabic style dessert spread!
What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)
On a serious note
Guys this isn't kpop related, I have posted this to all communities, but can we take a minute, or 10 that this video takes, to really understand what is going on in our world today. At first I flupped passed this video. I admit, I didn't want to watch something again about mass shootings. But then I clicked on it and watched all the way through. What are these emotions I am feeling. It is like Eugene unlocked a blocked door inside me and opened my eyes. YES I am in the generation of the millennials, YES I am 5 years younger than him, YES I can have a say in what happens next in my life time, YES there is ways we can start the change. I always keep saying that I want to live at sea for the sole reason of running away from humans and not standing up for what I BELIEVE. But if Eugene, a ordinary person can make a youtube video expressing his memories and emotions regarding this issue, than why can't I stand up and do the same? Here is me, standing up for what I believe. DO NOT stand to the side and talk about what you think should be done all the while not doing anything. DO NOT go into this up coming election blindly. DO NOT say anything is impossible. With time and enough motivation from people things can get done. Not just US millennials, but the entire global body can stand together and become ONE, United We Stand. Thank you Eugene for guiding me to this blocked door. I have opened that door and I'm willing to do everything in MY power to succeed in spreading word to thise who don't understand. This post isn't about guns and gun laws. It isn't about the LBGT community. It isn't about the presidential election this year. The sole purpose for this is to talk about VIOLENCE. The other topics fall into the place of violence. So please, take a moment and open your eyes and ears to what is really going on in our world and ask yourself this simple question, What Am I Doing That Can Help Our World Move Forward?
