Homemade Lemon Vinaigrette. Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. I have been into the cilantro lime combination for a long time now and I use it in many different things from marinades to sauces to soups, etc. and I also use it as a garnish on things like rice bowls, tacos, tostadas, fish, sandwiches, etc. The other day I had a thought: Wouldn't it be great if I could bottle the amazing cilantro and lime flavours so that I could pour them all over everything? With that idea this vibrant, light, bright and super tasty cilantro lime vinaigrette was born! I kept the vinaigrette nice and simple using plenty of fresh cilantro along with the lime juice, some oil, garlic and some jalapeno for a touch of heat. I don't know if you can bottle magic but you can certainly bottle the magical combination of cilantro and lime!

Growing up in the Middle East it was all she knew in her younger years and still loves it today. So for our remaining few hours in California before jetting back to the Midwest, Nadia treated us to a traditional Persian meal that left quite the impression on me.

Fesejan (prounced fesenjoon). This dish a must. If not for Thanksgiving then today, tomorrow or the next. The combinations of ingredients is pure genius; and its the flavors, textures and complexity are absolutely stunning. After Nadia treated us to an appetizer of Creamy Eggplant Dip (bademjoon) and pita that blew my mind, this was the one-two punch to totally knock my taste buds off their tiny taste bud feet.

When we were in school, budding artists lugged around black sketchbooks and convened at informal coffeehouses to share their talents. Today’s kids gather inspiration online via Pinterest and showcase their singing and storytelling skills on YouTube and Snapchat.

Here are five ways your students can draw on social media to fuel their creativity. 1. Use social media to talk about audience. Between sites like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, it’s never been easier to put one’s artwork out there for the world to see. As you know, however, young people aren’t always intentional about what they share online. As students work on a project, you might talk about audience in social media terms. 2. Try challenging your students to choose a post, video or pin as inspiration for their own works of art, whether it’s a drawing, piece of writing, graphic or short film. 3. As a class, try browsing the blogs, Facebook pages or Twitter feeds of various writers, artists and performers. 4. 5.

The Normalization of Intimate Partner Violence in Beauty and the Beast. Domestic Violence Programs Brace For End Of Federal Funds After Friday.

By Bryce Covert "Domestic Violence Programs Brace For End Of Federal Funds After Friday" Domestic violence programs across the country say they have received letters from federal offices that dole out grant money informing them that after Friday, if the government is not reopened, they will cease operations and the programs won’t be able to draw down the funds they normally rely on. While some may be able to weather the storm, small, rural programs and those that rely heavily on federal money are looking at layoffs and disruptions in service. On Thursday, a reader who runs a domestic violence and rape crisis center in Northern California shared a letter with Andrew Sullivan received from the Office of Justice Programs, which disburses funds from the Violence Against Women Act: Office of Justice Programs (OJP) have sufficient resources to remain operational through Friday, October 4, 2013.

Other programs confirmed they had gotten similar letters from OJP and other agencies. Kristin's Story. Counselling rape victims in Democratic Republic of the Congo. Rape, the Most Intimate of Crimes.

A 49-year-old woman who lives in a middle class neighborhood on one of Salt Lake City's busiest streets let her dog out one warm fall night as she always did. When he began barking furiously in the driveway, she ran outside to see what was wrong. As cars sped by, a masked man grabbed her and put a knife at her throat. Without saying a word, he pulled her by the arm, pushed her into her house and threw her on the bed. The dog ran in the house behind them, barking frantically. The man threw the dog against the wall, then raped the woman. "I know that I will never, ever be the same person again. While her attacker remains at large, the Salt Lake City woman struggles to get over what happened to her.

BOOK REVIEW: "Showa: A History of Japan 1926-1939" | Animation Scoop.

In his intriguing and ambitious manga Showa: A History of Japan 1926-1939 (Drawn & Quartered: $24.95) Shigeru Mizuki skillfully interweaves autobiography with national and international events; The only graphic novel in English of comparable depth and scope is Art Spiegelman's Maus. Originally published in 1988-89, Showa is the first installment in a 4-volume set that will be issued in the US over the next year. In Japan, the 92-year-old Mizuki is a hugely popular manga artist, best know for his charmingly off-beat tales of yokai. (Yokai are spirits in Japanese folklore; the word has been translated as "ghosts," "spooks" and "haunts. ") There’s a museum dedicated to his work, and his manga have been adapted to animation and live-action films. A street in his home town of Sakaiminato features 100 bronze statues of his yokai characters. "Showa" ("period of enlightened harmony") refers to the 63-year reign (1926-1989) of the Emperor Americans know as Hirohito.

The Ignorant Schoolmaster. Jacques Rancière. Jacques Rancière (born 1940) is a French philosopher, Professor of Philosophy at European Graduate School in Saas-Fee and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris (St. Denis) who came to prominence when he co-authored Reading Capital (1968), with the structural Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser.[1] Life and work[edit] Rancière contributed to the influential volume Reading Capital (though his contribution is not contained in the partial English translation) before publicly breaking with Althusser over his attitude toward the May 1968 student uprising in Paris; Rancière felt Althusser's theoretical stance didn't leave enough room for spontaneous popular uprising.[2] Since then, Rancière has departed from the path set by his teacher and published a series of works probing the concepts that make up our understanding of political discourse, such as ideology and proletariat.

Art in the streets of Kabul | World news. Inside the blackened ruin of Kabul's cultural centre, a spray-painting of a woman in a burqa sits at the foot of a staircase to nowhere, beside a line of poetry mourning everything that has been lost to Afghanistan in three decades of violence. The painting is the work of Shamsia Hassani, 24, probably her country's first serious graffiti artist. "The water can come back to a dried-up river, but what about the fish that died?

" is her translation of the line, written under gaping holes gouged through the concrete walls by shells when battles raged through the area. "When I heard this poem, I thought how it was about the situation in Afghanistan. A lot of people died in the war; now the situation is better, but those people cannot come back," said Hassani. An associate professor of sculpture at Kabul University, she draws, paints in oil, and is a founding member of a contemporary art collective, Rosht, or "growth". She has embraced the discipline.

Or she does fantasy graffiti. Kabul - a city at work. Afghanistan. “Given the images people see on TV, many conclude Afghanistan never made it out of the Middle Ages. But that is not the Afghanistan I remember. I grew up in Kabul in the 1950s and ’60s. Stirred by the fact that news portrayals of the country’s history didn’t mesh with my own memories, I wanted to discover the truth.

“Remembering Afghanistan’s hopeful past only makes its present misery seem more tragic.

Portraits of Afghan Villagers with Instant Pictures of Themselves. After reading about the Wakhan Corridor in the New York Times, French photographers Fabrice Nadjari and Cedric Houin decided to visit the remote region in Afghanistan in the summer of 2011, walking for 24 days through a 140 mile stretch.

Their project, titled “Traces of Time”, involved capturing instant photos of the villagers they met: When [Nadjari and Houin] arrived in the first village, they found that even photographs, which freeze time, worked differently. The portraits they took with Polaroid cameras developed oddly, and degraded rapidly, because of the high altitude and harsh conditions.

But this made them no less valuable to their subjects, many of whom had never seen a photograph. Some had never seen an outsider.The local Afghans marveled at the fragile images and lined up to have their photos taken. “There was something extremely precious in the way they were holding the image, in the way they wanted to get it as soon as it got out of the camera,” Mr. Suicide bombings cause torment for Pakistani children - Feature.
