Hula Hooping for Fitness and Health – Yahoo News

Posted: November 10, 2020 at 12:58 am

Sisters Rowan and Blythe TwoSisters (their legal last name) were relaxing one evening in Rowan's Houston home, when a hoop dancing DVD showed up months after Rowan had ordered it. Its arrival led to an incredible legacy of innovation and inclusion within the world of hoop dance. And yes, there's a whole world of hoop dancing. But it was a long journey to get there.

Blythe and Rowan have always been tall, now 5'11 and 6'1 respectively, which led to them trying sports like basketball and volleyball in school. Rowan played basketball but was frustrated that she couldn't get a uniform that fit her correctly. She says, "I didn't feel confident just leaving the dressing room, much less trying to play a game in embarrassingly tight clothing. And even though the boy's teams had plenty of money for uniforms, the girl's teams never did." So when she tore her ACL at age 16, she chose not to return to the sport, focusing instead on hiking in the mountains with her dogs.

Blythe played volleyball in school. "I was terrible, but they let me play because I was tall." She hated all the running and feeling uncoordinated.

Finding the Right Exercise for Your Body

After high school, Rowan moved with her two energetic dogs to Florida, across the street from Cocoa Beach (literally A1A, Beachfront Avenue!). She would ride her bike at the beach with them and body surf to relax. At 22, she joined a gym and met some friends who were doing triathlons. They eventually talked her into giving it a try. She did great in the swim portion, but it went downhill from there, and she decided that one triathlon was more than enough.

Blythe's journey with fitness stopped as a young adult. Fitness had always been painful and dreadful. She eventually discovered that was because she had ankylosing spondylitis, a painful genetic inflammatory disease that reduces spinal flexibility but can often be managed.

Story continues

In grad school she found herself frequently flying out to California and wanted to try her hand at surfing, but knew that she had to get her fitness level up to do it safely.

At 32, Blythe joined a gym. That's where she discovered NIA -- which stands for neuromuscular integrative action -- a mind-body movement technique that's a fusion of many different movement forms, including yoga, thai chi, dance, martial arts and Feldenkrais. She was in love, so of course she called her sister. While Blythe was finishing grad school in Dallas, Rowan was in Houston, which was a major hub for NIA, and Blythe insisted that Rowan take the first level (white belt) training.

The Hula Hoop of Self-Esteem

One year later, they were both on their way to completing the second-level NIA teaching certification. It was that evening, sitting in Rowan's living room, exhausted from their NIA training, they opened that DVD. Instantly inspired, Blythe found a second wind and grabbed a hoop that Rowan had lying around. It was a complete no go. Rowan's luck wasn't any better. Wondering, "why can't we hoop like the women on the video?" they went to bed frustrated.

Undeterred, Rowan convinced Jocelyn Gordan from Hoopnotica, a leader in hoop dance fitness instruction and equipment since 2006, to come give them a training. They learned that the hoop they were using was, in Rowan's words, "way too small. Like walking around in a child's size seven shoe when you need a women's 11." They added 8 inches to the hoop, and the whole world opened up. It wasn't their bodies that were the limitation.

As they learned, they began to teach, so that they could bring hooping to people of all body sizes. "Not everybody fits inside of a tiny hula hoop, and we will be damned if someone is gonna take that joy away from us or someone we love," Rowan says. "We created the hoop of self-esteem. That sucker is HUGE! Like it doesn't fit in most cars, so Blythe figured out how to make them collapsible. We spent hours and hours figuring out how to make a hula hoop that was inclusive as hell, with 48 to 54 inches of useable space inside."

Then they created even greater accessibility by teaching more "off the body" work. When we think of hooping, we typically envision the hoop circling the waist, but in fact lots of hoop dance is done with the hoop around the arms, legs and even neck.

And it wasn't just fat bodies they wanted to make sure were included. "Both hooping and NIA are centered around the thin feminine, traditionally pretty heteronormative narrative, and sure they give lip service to othering and inclusion, but that doesn't really seem to hold when it comes to being fat. So we both roll right over those norms," shares Blythe.

Blythe got her husband involved, and soon they had their own little hoop-making factory, with Blythe traveling to hoop trainings around the country.

A Hoopful of Possibilities

In 2010 they held their first hoop retreat in Dallas. The next year they moved it to the Texas beach near Galveston, and Hottie Hoop Camp was officially born. At its largest, it included 54 people, two rented beach houses and an intensely busy week-long schedule that included hoop, burlesque, dance, yoga and fashion all done from a fiercely body positive perspective. They created their own teacher certification program under their business name, Punk Rock Hoops. They also created a series of 16 basic beginner lessons on their Punk Rock Hoops YouTube channel.

Now, both in their late 40s, they keep hooping. Asked how the world of hoop dance can be more inclusive, they don't hesitate. Rowan explains, "How about have furniture that fits many bodies... how about an activity designed for MOST people to do? You need adaptive techniques for bodies that don't find ease in movement and teachers who can break down what's not working and what is."

For Rowan, hooping allows a freedom not available with many other forms of exercise. "Hooping and flow arts are individual while being in community. So I didn't have to look like everyone else, I can look and land moves and have ease in my body in a way that doesn't mirror an instructor or follow a narrow description of what's 'right.' That's pretty freeing, being a part of an expressive and fitness community while not having to 'Wear Pink on Wednesdays.'"

After 10 years of camps they took a sabbatical this year due to the pandemic, but continue to get together every other Sunday with their friends to hoop in a park downtown, in an event they call Cool Honey's Circus. They are planning for the return of Hottie Hoop Camp next year, this time in the West Texas desert. And while their dance days in the park were shut down for a few months due to COVID-19, they're getting back to them with safety and social distancing practices. "We wear masks and stay far apart and don't hug (which hurts), but we need to see our people, and they need us too."

James W. Pfister: Untimely deaths of FDR and JFK and the Vietnam War – Monroe Evening News

Posted: at 12:58 am

without comments

President Franklin D. Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945, with Vietnam on his mind. President John F. Kennedy died on Nov. 22, 1963, 57 years ago this month, having told an aide to work up the Vietnam case for decision when he returned from Texas. My thesis is that if either had lived, we might not have had the Vietnam War which tore apart our society, violated the liberty of many young men and disseminated many families with the loss of life. No one knows what might have been, but here is some evidence.

Indochina (Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam) had been colonized by France in the 19th century. During World War II, the area was controlled by Japan. The American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and the Viet Minh under the leadership of Ho Chi Minh (the leader of North Vietnam) cooperated together in anti-Japanese activities in the area. FDR did not want France to reassert its sovereignty over Indochina. At the Tehran Conference, FDR and Stalin agreed that Indochina should not go back to France and that a trusteeship was desirable.

FDR was opposed to colonialism anywhere in the world, and particularly wanted to prevent the French returning to Indochina. The United States was indeed preparing to grant independence to the Philippines in 1946. Ho Chi Minh on Sept. 2, 1945, declared independence for the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. He contacted the United States for its support. He noted the United States' support for independence for its colony, the Philippines.

If FDR had lived, it is entirely possible an amity relationship could have developed between Ho and the United States. It is possible this could have occurred in the trusteeship system being organized in the new United Nations. Russell H. Fifield in "Americans in Southeast Asia," wrote: If his trusteeship concept had been implemented, possibly two bloody and costly wars might have been avoided. But FDR died, and Vice President Harry S. Truman was not on the inside of decision-making with FDR; he went with the French inserting themselves into Indochina, which led to the French-Indochinese War ending with the Geneva Accords of 1954.

The United States saw the Geneva Accords as a communist victory. The Cold War had come to Southeast Asia. Our response was the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO). Thailand was the only member of SEATO on Mainland Asia. SEATO was, if effect, an American protectorate of Thailand. South Vietnam was designated as a protocol state. Ngo Dinh Diem, a Catholic, with American support, became president of South Vietnam (another story), in a Buddhist country! Sink or swim with Ngo Dinh Diem, was the slogan.

November and December 1963 was a watershed moment. Diem was assassinated Nov. 2 (we knew there would be a coup, but JFK was shocked over Diems death), JFK was assassinated Nov. 22, and Thai Prime Minister Sarit Thanarat died of liver failure (some might say of wine, women, and song) on Dec. 8 at age 55. These three deaths left a vacuum. Again, an American vice president, Lyndon Johnson, not in the inner decision-making circle, became president, and wound up committing over 500,000 troops and bombing North Vietnam to create a major American war, necessitating the military draft and costing 47,434 American battle deaths. Would JFK have done this?

A year earlier in the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK went with his legal/political advisers, not his military advisers, who wanted to invade Cuba. According to Robert Kennedy in his book "Thirteen Days," JFK was suspicious of military advice; it seemed they always wanted to go to war. It is likely JFK would have continued his clear and hold/strategic hamlet strategy within a counterguerrilla framework. President Johnson, on the other hand, followed his military advisers and pursued a search and destroy strategy. JFK had said he did not want to institute the military draft. He had said he did not want to turn the conflict into an American war. He wanted to conceptualize the conflict as something other than a war, perhaps as a challenge of nation-building. JFK was close to academics at major universities as constituents; they were predominately anti-war.

Perhaps, Roger Hilsman said it best in "To Move a Nation:" If South Vietnam could not be won, then the United States could accept the resulting situation and would be free to enter negotiations without fatal consequences to our position in the rest of Asia. In other words, Thailand would remain secure. No domino theory here.

American podium participants at the 2008 Phuket Open (left to right) are Jeremy Akers, Angiel Akers, Jen Kessy, Jeff Conover, April Ross, Tyra Turner and Chad Turner.

Lausanne, Switzerland, November 8, 2020 - In the history of the womens competition on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour, Jen Kessy and April Ross rank ninth among all teams in gold medals. The American pair captured two of those titles in back-to-back seasons in Thailand this week in history.

The podium-topping finishes on Karon Beach in the Thai coastal resort of Phuket happened on back-to-back days with Kessy and Ross defeating American rivals in both the gold medal matches on November 8, 2008 and November 9, 2009.

The gold medal win 11 years ago today was the sixth of 10 Kessy/Ross titles as the pair posted a two set win over Angie Akers and Tyra Turner. The victory was the seventh-straight win for Kessy and Ross in the series between the two teams. Eleven years later, Akers is now coaching Ross and Alix Klineman.

After defeating Nicole Branagh and Turner in a three-set, 63-minute match for a 2008 Phuket gold medal for their second World Tour title together on November 9, Kessy and Ross topped another FIVB podium seven days later in China by defeating two host country teams on the final day of play in Sanya.

Ross joins Brazilian Larissa Franca and compatriot Kerri Walsh Jennings as the only women to win 10 or more World Tour gold medals with two different partners. Ross and Walsh Jennings amassed 11 FIVB titles together.

Larissa accomplished the feat with Juliana Felisberta (45 titles) and Talita Antunes (16) with Walsh Jennings capturing 40 FIVB gold medals with Misty May-Treanor. Larissa and Walsh Jennings rank 1-2 in overall gold medals with 62 and 56, respectively.

Six beach volleyball Olympians celebrate birthdays this week, including legendary Brazilian Franco Neto. A 16-time winner on the FIVB World Tour with four different partners over a 14-season period, Franco turns 54 on Wednesday. Franco won 13 FIVB gold medals with Roberto Lopes as the pair placed ninth at the Atlanta 1996 Olympics.

Olympians celebrating birthdays today are Sydney 2000 participant Zi Xiong of China and Rio 2016 performer Doaa Elghobashy of Egypt. The 44-year old Xiong captured one FIVB Challenge title in 2001 with Rong Chi after the pair placed ninth in Sydney. Elghobashy is 24 today and placed 19th in Rio with Nada Meawad.

Mexican Olympians Lombardo Ontiveros (37 Monday) and Teresa Galindo (50 Thursday) celebrate birthdays this week along with American Gail Castro Kehl, who turns 63 Thursday. Ontiveros and Juan Virgen placed ninth in the Rio Summer Games.

Galindo and Hilda Gaxiola were 19th in the Sydney Olympics after losing to eventual champions Natalie Cook/Kerri Pottharst and Xiong/Chi. Castro Kehl, who captured a 1994 World Tour event in Puerto Rico with Elaine Roque, was ninth at the Atlanta 1996 Summer Games with Deb Richardson.

The small country located in the south of China is growing in the manufacturing market and gradually becoming one of the world's largest clothing and apparel exporters.

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, Nov. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Home to a population of over 92 million, Vietnam houses a thriving textile industry with manufacturers of almost every niche of clothing running businesses. The south-east Asian nations textile industry is one of the largest globally, right behind China and Bangladesh, and has shown a remarkable potential to trump both its market competitors.

The probability may soon become a reality, especially in a post-COVID world where most brands are choosing to move away from China and its facilities, amid rising labor expenses and a global dissatisfaction towards the Communist nation where the ongoing pandemic originated.

Despite the slowdown caused by the rapid spread of the novel Coronavirus, Vietnams textiles and apparel sector witnessed earnings of US$16.18 million, of which over US$ 13 million were from exports conducted in the first six months. It has even surpassed Bangladesh to become the worlds second-largest textile importer, a laurel the country is confident it will carry for a long time to come.

So if you are searching for a reliable supplier for your clothing manufacturing needs, look no further for you have zeroed in on the right destination. You can get a wide variety of items manufactured in the country, and the list includes, but is not limited to

b.Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) This trade arrangement will let Vietnam conduct exports to and receive foreign direct investments from 13 countries, including Canada, Australia, Brunei, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, and Singapore.

New Atlanta Restaurants That Opened During the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic – Eater Atlanta

Posted: at 12:57 am

without comments

Despite the ongoing health crisis, state and citywide shutdowns, construction issues, and delayed permitting due to government closures, dozens of restaurants have managed to open around Atlanta since April. While some restaurants listed here allow seating on the patio or are open for limited dine-in service, most establishments offer online ordering for takeout and delivery, and even to-go windows.

It should be noted that the number of COVID-19 cases in Georgia continues to surge, and while studies indicate there is a lower exposure risk when dining outdoors, the same precautions should be taken outside as inside a dining room. This includes social distancing, keeping prolonged, face-to-face interactions to a minimum, and wearing masks when not eating or drinking or when social distancing isnt possible.

Check back for updates as Eater continues to track restaurant openings.

The Companion

Located in the Bolton neighborhood, longtime Steinbecks Ale House chef Andy Gonzales opened the Companion days prior to the statewide shelter-in-place order in April.

Recipe: This Thai green curry with beef is all about the sauce – Indianapolis Business Journal

Posted: October 17, 2020 at 10:51 am

without comments

Kaeng Khiao Wan Nuea (Green Curry With Beef and Thai Eggplant) MUST (The Washington Post photo/Laura Chase de Formigny)

I really appreciate a recipe where the sauce is the best part of the dish. Butter chicken? Yes, please, Ill take a bowl of sauce and a piece of naan for dipping. And the wine-infused gravy from my familys chicken and mushrooms is basically liquid gold, perfect for dunking chunks of crusty bread.

Id put coconut-based Thai curries in the same category. Give me a generous pour of curry liquidred, yellow or greenand a plate of jasmine rice, and Im a happy camper.

Youll agree once you take a slurp of this green curry from cookbook author Leela Punyaratabandhu. Of course, what makes the sauce is the curry paste, and youll need a good one, preferably from Thailand.

I can appreciate the impulse to make your own paste, and initially thats what I wanted to do with Punyaratabandhus recipe. But after a couple of fruitless calls to my local Asian markets and largely striking out online (makrut limes are especially hard to come by), I decided to take Punyaratabandhu up on her suggestion that commercial pastes are the best way to get the traditional flavors if you cant acquire the right ingredients to make your own. Plus, at only a few bucks for a whole container, its a cheaper upfront investment than buying everything individually, particularly if youre not sure youd use up all the components. Asian markets and some well-stocked grocery stores carry curry pastes from Thailand. Brands to look for include Mae Ploy, Maesri, Pantai, Nittaya and Lobo. Maesri, for example, is available at some Wegmans, and some Targets carry Mae Ploy.

One other ingredient note: If you cant find round green Thai eggplants, which should be at most Asian markets and even some farmers markets, I tested the recipe with halved and sliced long Asian eggplants. They cooked up softer than the Thai variety, which wasnt necessarily bad, but you may want to knock back the cooking time a bit to account for the difference.

Once you have your ingredients in hand, its pretty much smooth sailing with this one-pot meal that comes together in just about an hour. The beef (boneless, skinless chicken thighs work well, too) essentially poaches in the aromatic, rich liquid. That leaves the meat beautifully tender and also means it infuses the broth as much as the broth infuses it.

As to that broth, it includes coconut three waysoil, milk and cream (the solids that rise to the top of a can of coconut milk, dont mistake it for cream of coconut). Low-fat this is not, but you can certainly control how much liquid you include in your portion, even though its pretty hard to resist. If you do manage to end up with extra, youll be left with a next-day treat that I can confirm is fantastic on its own poured over rice, or any other grain or stir-fry your heart desires.

Recipe note: Youll need two 14-ounce cans of coconut milk for this dish. For the cream, skim off the thick top without stirring. For the milk, stir the contents of the can together to incorporate.

Kaeng Khiao Wan Nuea (Green Curry With Beef and Thai Eggplant)

1 hour

4 to 6 servings

Thai curry just as good or better than your typical takeout is within reach, thanks to this one-pot recipe. The key here is to buy a good Thai curry paste. Cookbook author Leela Punyaratabandhu says commercial pastes are the best way to get the traditional flavors if you cant acquire the right ingredients to make your own. We decided to take her up on that suggestion.

We also tested the recipe with chicken (boneless, skinless thighs), which worked well. Round, green Thai eggplants can be trickier to find, but we found that long Asian eggplant was a fine substitute, though they do tend to cook up softer.

Youll need two 14-ounce cans of coconut milk for this dish. For the cream, skim off the thick top without stirring. For the milk, stir the contents of the can together to incorporate.

Serve with plenty of rice, preferably jasmine, to soak up all the flavorful cooking liquid

Storage Notes: Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Where to Buy: Most Asian markets and some well-stocked grocery stores will carry curry pastes from Thailand. Brands to look for include Mae Ploy, Maesri, Pantai, Nittaya and Lobo. Maesri, for example, is available at some Wegmans.


8 ounces round Thai eggplants, stemmed and quartered through the stem end (see headnote; may substitute Asian eggplant, halved vertically and cut into 1/2-inch slices)

1/2 lemon

1/2 cup coconut cream (skimmed from the top of a 14-ounce can of coconut milk)

2 tablespoons coconut oil or vegetable oil

2 tablespoons green curry paste (see headnote)

1 1/2 cups canned coconut milk (from one 14-ounce can)

12 ounces chuck roast, cut against the grain and on the diagonal into bite-size pieces

2 phrik chi fa (fresh Thai long chiles; may substitute 1/2 green bell pepper), cut lengthwise on the diagonal into 1/4-inch-wide strips

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 teaspoons packed grated palm sugar (may substitute 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar)

1/2 cup packed Thai basil leaves (may substitute Italian sweet basil)


Place the eggplant pieces in a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon juice.

In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the coconut cream, coconut oil and curry paste over medium-high heat and stir until the paste is fragrant and the coconut fat separates (youll see shiny droplets of fat on the surface), about 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk and beef and bring to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally. Cover, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Drain the eggplants and add them to the pan along with the chiles, fish sauce, sugar and, if necessary, just enough water to keep everything submerged. Turn up the heat just enough to return the curry to a simmer, cover and continue to cook until the eggplants are tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

Taste for seasoning. No more sugar should be added, but more fish sauce may be needed. When the flavor is to your liking, remove the pan from the heat, stir in the basil leaves and serve.

Conference seeks to promote exports to Thailand – Nhan Dan Online – Nhan Dan Online

Posted: at 10:51 am

without comments

The event was held in Ho Chi Minh City by the Investment and Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC) of Ho Chi Minh City in partnership with Central Retail Vietnam.

ITPC Deputy Director Tran Phu Lu said that Thailand is the Vietnams largest trade partners in ASEAN, noting that import and export revenue between Vietnam and Thailand in the 2016-2019 period accounted for 30% of Vietnams total import and export revenue from all countries in ASEAN.

Vietnams export revenue to Thailand makes up one fifth of Vietnams total export revenue from ASEAN and Thailand always maintains its position as the largest export market of Vietnam in ASEAN. However, Vietnam always posts a trade deficit with Thailand.

Through Central Retail, one of the leading retail groups in Thailand, Vietnamese enterprises are expected to bring their products to the Big C supermarket chain and export to Thailand in a bid to ease negative impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, restore business activities, and expand markets.

Enterprises were also informed of the needs and tastes of Thai consumers as well as the opportunities and challenges in selling goods in this market. At the event, Vietnamese enterprises were also given the chance to introduce their products to Thai enterprises through virtual platforms.
