Author: Administrator

trojanhorseOn the north-west coast of Turkey, atop a hill overlooking the mouth of the Dardanelles, lies the memory of a city which blurs the line between myth and history like no other.In mythology, Troy inspired the Greek epic poet Homer to conceive his two great works in (probably) the eighth century BC: the Iliad – set in the final year of the decade-long siege of Troy by a coalition of Greek states – and its “sequel”, the Odyssey.

Greece the best holiday for families with teenagers

gr8Show me a teen on holiday, and I’ll show you a list of “Oh, muuu-uums”. The destination is dull. Your company vile. What’s the Wi-Fi code, again? They’re beyond building sand castles, but don’t want to lie on a lounger all day, either. And a kids’ club? They’re far too cool for that.To fill the gap between childish have-a-go-ism and adult autonomy, this summer Scott Dunn, the luxury tour operator and creator of British-middle-class-bubbles-from-home around the world, has launched Crew.

india5Every day, after she finishes cooking, cleaning and fetching water for her tiny one-room home in India’s financial capital Mumbai, Saubhagya Nadelkari picks up a stack of leather strips and makes her way to her neighbor’s home.There, in a narrow alley that is covered with plastic, about half a dozen women sit or stand as they braid long strips for use in belts, sandals and bags. They talk and laugh as their fingers fly, knotting each strip at the end when it is done.

Foods That Make You Look Younger-New life for old cuisines

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundYou can head off a lot of your most common beauty concerns simply by downing the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real get-gorg benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. "Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age," says Joshua Zeichner, MD. The smart approach, Dr. Zeichner says, is to create a plan that includes what he calls "the building blocks of healthy skin and hair"—nutrients, minerals and fatty acids—as well as antioxidants to protect your body from damaging environmental stresses. Get ready to nab some beauty-boosting perks by tossing these essential face-saving edibles into your grocery cart.What to eat to keep young and beautiful and among those products is Feta cheese is packed full of vitamin B12, which speeds up the replacement of dead skin cells. cfood1Central Asian restaurants have made a place for themselves in Beijing's Russian district, and diners are licking their lips, Erik Nilsson reports. Erik Nilsson The old Soviet Union is reuniting in Beijing - for dinner. At least its cuisine is. Central Asian fare has taken a central place at the table in the Yabaolu neighborhood's dining scene, as the city's "Russiatown" transforms into "Beijing-istan".Natives of the "stans" are making culinary inroads into China's capital as the New Silk Road Economic Belt develops, while fewer Russian traders are frequenting the declining Yabaolu fur market that spurred the original development of the surrounding Slavic enclave.This means compote, a juice of mixed fruits, is diluting volumes of vodka, as the tides of the boiled dried-fruit juice rise and the hard-drinking part of town dries up. (Actually, many of the area's Central Asian eateries are halal, but allow you to bring your own booze.) There's more yogurt and less mayonnaise. More kebabs and fewer cutlets. More plov (Central Asia's rice staple) and fewer potatoes.These eateries dot the Shenlu dining street behind the fur market, sprinkled among restaurants serving sustenance from China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Mongolia,Greece,Turkey and Italy.food7People will choose larger portions of food if they are labeled as being "healthier," even if they have the same number of calories, according to a new study."People think (healthier food) is lower in calories," said Pierre Chandon, a marketing professor at the INSEAD Social Science Research Center in France, and they "tend to consume more of it." That misconception can lead to people eating larger portion sizes of so-called healthy foods, and therefore more calories."Foods are marketed as being healthier for a reason, because food producers believe, and they correctly believe, that those labels will influence us to eat their products and perhaps eat more of their products,"
