Ein kleines Buch GANZ GROSS. Vegan Backen von Nicole Just, erschienen bei Gräfe & Unzer hat alles, was ein Backbuch (auch für Einsteiger) braucht: schöne Foodfotos, tolle Rezepte, neue Ideen und die Basics, um all jenen die Angst zu nehmen, die sich vor veganem Backen noch scheuen. Gleich zu Beginn werden genau diese Basics erklärt. Ein Highlight ist sicher das Käsekuchenrezept, das ich auch noch ausprobieren werde. Bisher hat meiner nämlich eher wie Puddingkuchen geschmeckt. Der hier sieht aber genauso soft und krümelig aus, wie er sein muss. Richtig toll ist, dass das Buch auch die herzhaften Gelüste abdeckt, und es Brot und Quiche zu backen gibt. Da ist mein Fave gleich mal die Süßkartoffel-Pilz-Quiche <3 muss ich unbedingt nachbacken! Das Ergebnis bekommt ihr auf jeden Fall hier mit. Das Buch hat eine Neuerung zu bieten, die ich sehr sehr bequem finde: eine App, die mir durch Abfotografieren des Rezeptbildes alle Zutaten ins Smartphone speichert und ich kann es direkt als Einkaufszettel mitnehmen! Einfacher gehts ja wohl nimmer…schon allein deswegen sollte man sich dieses Kleinod unbedingt zulegen.

Steinem, who turns 80 in March, returned to the NPC podium earlier this week to discuss an altogether more satisfying piece of neckwear: the Presidential Medal of Freedom—the highest honor the U.S. can bestow on a citizen who isn’t in the military—which Obama draped around her neck during Wednesday’s ceremony at the White House. He praised her for promoting “lasting political and social change in America and abroad and, among other things, for “inspiring us all to take up the cause of reaching for a more just tomorrow.”
“I can think of no president in history from whose hand I would be more honored to receive this medal from,” Steinem told the NPC audience, adding, “I’d be crazy if I didn’t understand that this was a medal for the entire women’s movement.”

Her clothes are provocative. She’s a whore. It’s the way she walks. Porn. Sexual frustration. She wants it. Everybody does it.
These are the kind of impudent excuses you’re likely to hear when asking perpetrators of any sexual harassment incident why they do it.
Sexual harassment is a phenomenon that has been spreading like cancer throughout Egypt for the past three decades, but even more dangerously is the new phenomenon of group sexual harassment. According to Dr. Magda Adly, the director El-Nadeem Center for Rehabilitation of Victims of Violence this new phenomenon was first observed in 2005 during a protest by Kefaya and other opposition movements against the then in effect Egyptian constitution. As riot police surrounded the demonstrators, buses -with the NDP signs on them- full of hired thugs arrived and then they started sexually assaulting the women in the demonstration, verbally and physically.

Meatless Monday’s at Harvest Kitchen! Living in Toronto and looking for a place to dine out during March? Harvest Kitchen is dishing out a vegetarian prix-fixe menu every Monday in March for only $24!! Now, I’m not sure exactly what their menu features as of yet, but if it’s anything like the other vegetarian options they offer, I think we’re in for a treat. The best part is that “HK” serves vegetarian food that doesn’t seem vegetarian. What I mean is that even a non-vegetarian (like for instance, say, I don’t know…my boyfriend) could eat a meal there and be more than satisfied. Which brings me to why I am so excited about this offer, aside from the fact that you can get five courses and a drink for twenty-four buckeroos.
Plus, their slogan, “Where vegetarians bring their meat-eating friends and vice versa” totally resonates with me. It’s perfect for those of us transitioning into a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle who haven’t completely secluded themselves from their carnivorous cohorts (Me included!)
If any of you have visited Harvest Kitchen, I’d love to hear some more feedback on their food and service! What better time to visit than now. Deals on wheels peeps.

“They cannot express themselves normally except in certain places. Your life becomes a scenario in which you are pretending to be someone else,” said photographer Álvaro Laiz who spent three and a half months photographing male-to-female transgender people in Mongolia to explore notions of identity in a place where they are forced to hide who they are.
“Your job, your relatives become part of this performance, and little space is left to act as you would really want to be. It is insane,” he added.

So horrible you wish for it to be a lie…
The National Reporter
Animal rights groups in Portland Oregon are steaming mad over a new zoo that recently opened in the downtown district.
It is a zoo where visitors can tease, harass and even cause pain to innocent animals.
“What the hell kind of place is this where young children are handed slingshots and told to shoot animals?” Peta activist ClargRomwell said in disgust.
The National Reporter – Are you saying the zoo officials allow people to shoot their animals with slingshots?
“Allow them?” He grunted. “They give them the slingshots and then the kids tip toe out behind a park ‘hunting guide’to shoot unsuspecting animals. When the animal runs off in pain, the park’s ‘hunting guide” has a big laugh with the kids. It’s sickening.”

At the moment, the main power is concentrated in the hands of the opposition party “Batkivshchyna” (“Fatherland”) , which has managed to rally a substantial part of the ruling class. Its leader, recently released from prison Yulia Tymoshenko, has obvious presidential ambitions. It should be remembered though, that when Tymoshenko’s sentence was pronounced, the rally in her support in Kiev gathered no more than five thousand people, and all the mass demos of this party had to use paid-for extras. Batkivshchyna as well as the Party of Regions has virtually no serious grassroot support or activist base, but it has large enough material resources.
In order to stay in power, Yulia Tymoshenko’s team will have to appease the far rightists, the Right Sector in particular. Two such attempts have already been made – the fascists who had been imprisoned in cases not related to the Maidan were released after the enactment of the according law in the Parliament. New Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has promised to introduce representatives of the RS in his ministry. Now we’ll be able to call the cops “Nazis” with a good reason. But Batkivshchyna is clearly frightened of such a passionate and uncontrolled element in power. So they will try to get the far-right on the hook, not only by buying but also by tying them with blood. Right Sector dreams of settling old accounts with subcultural anti-fascists, so they were carefully supplied with the Security Service or police dossiers containing personal data. Probably in the near future the authorities will close their eyes to violence against the left or racist attacks, but will recall it a few months later, when they will need an excuse to reign in the uncomfortable allies.
Right Sector leads its own game, and has been doing so for long enough. Today its leader Dmitry Jarosh claims entry into power at a very high level, as a deputy prime minister for law enforcement agencies. At the same time, as reported by the journalist Mustafa Nayem, according to the records found in the Presidential Administration, Yarosh was communicating with Yanukovych or his representatives on February 20. Even before that, on January 28 the negotiations between the Right Sector and Security Service / Ministry of Internal Affairs were officially announced. A day later representatives of the right let this fact slip, declaring “the desire to join the negotiation process.” Probably such negotiations actually has been taking place since much earlier, especially when one considers the background of all the organizations that were a part of “Right Sector”: “Tryzub” (“Trident”) as well as SNA, and “Bely Molot” (“White Hammer”) have in various forms actively interacted with politicians from both system parties, and with the security forces since the 90s – 2000s.

Words cannot express how pleased I am that Veils exist. Before this release I had not heard of them at all but now that Clarity has brought the band to my attention my life has got that little touch better. Hailing I think from Cornwell and delivering 5 tracks of emotional screamo hardcore (fuck that sounds horrible) this quartet tore me a new one as soon as I heard them. It started with a random bandcamp play that led to me pre ordering the vinyl. I then found out they were touring with The Long Haul and bought that fucker too, simply because they are on the same label and sharing the same stages, such was the pull from this one track on bandcamp. The track in question is called Caves (anxiety) and it’s breath taking. A few moments later in my inbox the digital downloads appeared (other labels take note) and that is what I am basing this review from. The following 24 hours was stuffed full of this record. I must admit that I am somewhat obsessed.
Each track has a theme in brackets after the title. My current favourite being Stallions (Adrenaline), it pulls you along through the song by the scruff of your neck screaming “listen to me you fucker, I need to be heard.” The record has the same feel as the recent Touché Amore album. Which is a great record, it’s just I think this is better. The production is crisp and raw at the same time. The chaotic parts toward the end of Surrender (Clarity) simply need to be heard through a cranked up sound system. It is the aural equivalent of the Earth imploding. It’s damn near perfect. Thank fuck for Veils and Tangled Talk. It goes without saying I guess but I can’t recommend this release enough.
Matt from MODERN LIFE IS WAR has also got this band:
Only Crime, featuring Russ Rankin (Good Riddance), Aaron Dalbec (Bane/Converge), Bill Stevenson (Black Flag/Descendents/All), Dan Kelly (The Frisk/Tegan And Sara) and Matt Hoffman (Modern Life Is War), has signed with Rise Records and will release their new LP, Pursuance on May 13th.
Fans of heavy music will love how the band pushes the limits of rhythmic experimentation and ambitious arrangements, while articulating moody, melodic hooks on “Pursuance,“ their first release on Rise Records.

First of all, despite my brevity in relaying its content, don’t be fooled. The attention street harassment has gained in the media recently, the countless stories, articles and tweets, will have a normalising effect on some readers (no doubt those who would suggest the author quit bemoaning her female misfortune and accept street harassment as ‘harmless fun’). Really, its abundance and the nonchalance with which women often share their experiences should send a shiver down our spines.
Because the impact it has on women’s lives is fucked! That the author sometimes finds herself ‘braced… for the moment of passing, muscles tensed, cold fists involuntarily clenched’ because of men is fucked. The fact that women are described as ‘walking with keys between their knuckles just to feel safe’ is fucked.

I read your post about how LGBT movement and Feminism are related, as both of them are fighting against chauvinistic and hypocritical pigs (sorry for the language), who want to force their rules on others’ lives.

This post is out of the ordinary in terms of this blog, but in my secret other life I am an actor, and a rather feminist actor. So I thought I’d share this photo on my blog as I think it is important to express my other interests/ passions.
It is so difficult to fight every battle. There are so many things to fight for in this world – animal rights, poverty, inequalities in labour, war, inequalities between the sexes, mental health stigma… the list goes on. I have chosen to fight for the latter in this blog, but I am also very passionate about the equality of the sexes, particularly in light of the industry that I have chosen to enter. Males dominate every aspect from producing, to directing to acting. I want to see more female-centred films. As the wonderful Cate says – they shouldn’t be seen as quirky experiments. They should be the norm.
Great stuff, well done.

I’ve written about 50 versions of this in my head. An original working title was called “Guest Ethics: Veganism in the Occupied Territories.” I liked it for a while but then realized that talking about developing a “guest ethic” for settlers would be a problem. I decided on something that continued to place veganism on Turtle Island as being on occupied territory, while also presenting anti-colonialism and animal liberation as two distinct and important streams of theory and praxis that could potentially have over lapping and intersecting interests.
Beides kombiniert find ich absoluter Blödsinn! Dem absoluten Anfänger empfehle ich das Training zuhause, mit dem eigenen Körpergewicht. Informiert euch über Übungen und über eure Muskulatur…versucht das ganze Thema Muskelaufbau zu verstehen. So könnt ihr mit viel Disziplin und Motivation auch zuhause topfit werden!
Als Fortgeschrittener könnt ihr, müsst aber nicht, den Sprung ins Fitnessstudio wagen! Da könnt ihr weiterhin Übungen machen mit dem eigenen Körpergewicht und zusätzlich mit Geräten arbeiten, die auf einzelne Muskelgruppen spezialisiert sind. “Keine halben Sachen”
Täglich Trainieren? Ist möglich aber sehr anspruchsvoll und habt ihr jeden Tag Zeit?
Wenn ihr täglich Trainieren wollt, dann bearbeitet man nur eine Muskelgruppe am Tag! Muskeln brauchen Pause, werden sie übertrainiert, fangen sie an abzubauen…und wer zur Hölle will das schon! Mindestens 48 Std. Pause. z.B.
Donnerstag: Arme (Bizeps+Trizeps) + Schultern
Samstag: Das ganze dann Wiederholen
45 min./2 versch. Übungen/3 Sätze/12-15 Wdh.
Ich empfehle: 3 mal pro Woche ein Ganzkörpertrainig!
z.B. Mo: Training Di: frei Mi: Training Do: Frei Fr: Training Sa: frei So: frei.
Da braucht ihr mind. 1 Std Zeit, die ihr darin investiert.
Colorful week, you know…

Throwdown hatten es hierzulande nie leicht, zumal die Pantera-Vergleiche von der Eigenständigkeit der Straight Edge-Band ablenkten. Auf “Intolerance” erinnern die gesungenen Vocals von Sänger Dave Peters zwar an den einen oder anderen Song der ehemaligen Groove Metaller, jedoch merkt man Throwdowns originelles Songwriting an, sodass sie sich weiterhin in Metal-Bereich bewegen, ohne ihre eigene Identität zu leugnen. “Intolerance” erscheint am 21. Januar und steht bei Soundcloud derzeit zum Streamen bereit.
