    Saudi female rapper arrested

    I thought religious organizations were not supposed to publicly back politicians or they will lose their non-exempt status. Guess I missed an updated memo changing this, but I think they're getting a pass by the rich to promote their own ends.

    COVID-19

    There are at least 45 confirmed cases in Chicago but probably more. Today, there is one confirmed case in a town three miles away from me. So far, my employers have not shut down the office; however, some of the people here are staying home anyway. Since these employers believe we are still in...

    Saudi female rapper arrested

    The GOP proposed these issues. A violation of human rights for both men and women. And influenced by the extreme evangelical right.

    Saudi female rapper arrested

    It's about control - control of everyone's lives. Recently here there was a proposed bill about limiting the amount of tampons women could buy. In another state, someone shot back and proposed a bill requiring men over 50 to get a vasectomy because they're too old to have kids.

    We had an easier winter this year. However, no one is enjoying much now with this pandemic Corona virus since most events are getting cancelled.

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    I know our friend would - so would I!! But for gala events like these, that's impossible. Even the star attraction at many of these events may only get a maximum of ten minutes!

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    That's very scary. I actually ran into more stalking problems with people I worked with in "respectable" office settings.

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    That's a nice amount of time allotted for very experienced dancers.

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    I never use my real name except for LinkedIn. A lot of this is due to my paycheck job. Apparently the industry I'm in doesn't think too highly of Middle Eastern Dance, or Polynesian either. I am friends with hundreds of people but that's partly due to networking and also mostly due to learning...

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    That reminds me of my early days where I was still in student recitals. There was an outcry by a few people that bellydance should not be allowed in the recitals; however, it seemed that most people were all for it because I was the first dancer out there, and some tight lipped ladies made a...

    Also, that term "bellydance" alarms a lot of uninformed people.

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    One of my major concerns is that I live alone and some weirdos would sit on my doorstep asking me to come out and dance <head bang>

    Anyone know more about this teacher?

    Cassandra Shore is in Minnesota and she used to teach Aziz. She is old school and fantastic. Aida al Adawi is still teaching in Minnesota and she also is old school and a fabulous teacher.

    Helping students defeat the stereotypes?

    This is why I do not try to set up shop in my neighborhood because too many people still see bellydance as a sexy dance to be mostly performed "for their man" and that is not what I want to represent. Sure, you can do that, but if I was to teach in my own back yard, I want people to come who are...

    Saudi female rapper arrested

    Both Atlas Shrugged and Fountainhead are similar in their messages but I found Fountainhead easier to follow as Atlas Shrugged was a very involved and layered book. A movie was made of Fountainhead with Gary Cooper and Patricia Neal back in the 1940s which wasn't bad.

    Belly Dancing Home Alone: New group on Facebook for dancers in isolation.

    There are a lot of Facebook groups that have discussions and they're more civilized than Bhuz ever was. I would recommend them for those in "isolation." There are some things on Facebook that are actually beneficial for dancers. And also on the flip side, there are tons of dancers who are on...

    I thought so too but then again look where she came from and the horrors she carried around with her.

    It's called Fountainhead. It's long but it's awesome. Her books are all about individualism.
