Aprenda palavrões em inglês no www.leader****.br - Belly dance (Arabic: رقص شرقي) is a Western term for a traditional Arab dance form. Some American devotees refer to it simply as "Middle Eastern Dance." In the Arabic language it is known as raqs sharqi (رقص شرقي; literally "oriental dance") or sometimes raqs baladi (رقص بلدي; literally "dance of country", and so "national" or "folk" dance). The term "raqs sharqi" may have originated in Egypt. In Greece and the Balkans, belly dance is called tsiftetelli (τσιφτετέλι), çiftetelli in Turkish. The term "belly dance" is a creation of Orientalism, first used in English in 1899, and translating in French to "danse du ventre."Native to North Africa and Asia, belly dancing (Arabic:raqs al sharqiرقص شرقي) is based on one of the oldest social dances in world history. Support for this theory stems from similarities between poses from the modern dance form and those depicted in ancient Egyptian art.
There are two forms of belly dancing. The first is called raqs baladi, a social dance performed for fun and celebration by men and women of all ages, usually during festive occasions such as weddings and other social gatherings. The second form, the more theatrical version and the one most popular in America today, is called raqs sharqi. Like raqs baladi, raqs sharqi is performed by both male and female dancers.
In regions where belly dancing is native, boys and girls learn it informally from an early age by observing and imitating their elders during family/community celebrations and gatherings with friends. Today, these ancient dance forms are taught in classes throughout the world where skilled dancers/teachers share the knowledge that has been passed down to them.The term "belly dancing" (which is believed by some to be a mis-transliteration of the term for the dance style Beledi or Baladi, though it is also a literal translation of the term "danse du ventre" used by the French Orientalists) is generally credited to Sol Bloom, entertainment director of the 1893 World's Fair, the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Although there were dancers of this type present at the 1876 Centennial in Philadelphia, it was not until the 1893 fair that it gained national attention. There were authentic dancers from several Middle Eastern and North African countries, including Syria, Turkey and Algeria, but it was the dancers in the Egyptian Theater of The Street in Cairo exhibit who gained the most notoriety. The rapid hip movements and the fact that the dancers were uncorseted, was considered shocking to the Victorian sensibilities of the day. In fact, there were attempts by many, most notably Anthony Comstock, head of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, to have the Egyptian theater closed.Belly dancing has been banned or restricted in some jurisdictions. In Egypt, there was a ban on foreign belly dancers for a year due to the complaint from Egyptian dancers that they were taking away business. The ban was eventually overturned in September 2004.

They started working on the streets at a mere six years of age. They left the warmth and familiarity of their village life, to follow strangers into a hostile city environment to find work, so as to support themselves and send money back to mum and dad. We go into the lives of the street children of Indonesia – Fitri, Robin, Nina and the rest of their friends, to get a feel of the lives they lead on the streets. This is an amazing story of survival– the child. Their innocence, courage and determination to survive amidst the odds against them is a reflection of the same in us, except that we have forgotten. Celebrate the child in us with this story.

*******www.FullTiltLife**** has a little fun with the Dodge Caliber while scoping out roads for Kings of the Street. Comparing the actual speedometer reading to the figures on the GPS show how accurate the speedometer is. The CV transmission is also interesting to see in action.
*******www.FullTiltLife**** and Kings of the Street Part 2 show what should have been an epic matchup in roll racing. Two huge Suzuki Turbo Hayabusas (one a Velocity kit, the other an Anderson) were prepared to go head to head on a clean roll to 200+mph with skilled and experienced riders wearing full safety gear aboard. However, an immediate equipment failure ends any possibility of the two bikes getting a clean run. Gilles Chain Adjusters, which are intended for racing use only fails the moment power is put through the drivetrain. Sometimes the blingy aftermarket stuff is less functional that the stock pieces they are meant to replace.
and Kings of the Street Part 2 show a quick highlight clip of two contenders going at it on a short closed course. Not an ideal location, certainly lacking in traction, too.
*******www.FullTiltLife**** and Kings of the Street Part 2 highlight yet another clip with a Busa and a Vette. This time, the bike is a Suzuki Hayabusa with a stock motor and the Chevy a highly modded supercharged Vette motor. A Hayabusa chase bike speedo captures the speeds.
