Top Kurdish politician Ilham Ahmed spoke to Reuters from northeast Syria after returning from Washington canada goose outlet toronto factory where she pressed the new United States administration for political and military support.

order to eliminate Daesh, canada goose deals there will definitely be military aid, she said, using an Canada Goose Coats On Sale Arabic acronym for Islamic State. officials also believed support could be increased, Ahmed said, describing her meetings as positive.

The SDF, dominated by the Kurdish Canada Goose Jackets YPG canada goose militia, has seized vast territory along the buy canada goose jacket cheap Syria Turkey border. It also includes Arab and other groups in the north.

One of the Trump administration major decisions will be whether to provide weapons to the YPG despite Turkish objections. says weapons provided to the SDF are so far limited to 2018 canada goose outlet its Arab elements.

Ahmed said her meetings indicated the Canada Goose Online SDF would receive continued, if not more, support from the United States. support for the SDF has created tensions with Turkey, which sees the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party that has waged a three decade insurgency in Turkey.

The YPG forms the military backbone of self governing regions that Kurdish groups have carved out in northern Syria since the onset of the war in Canada Goose sale 2011.

Turkey deployed its army in support of rebel groups in northern Syria in August, launching its own offensive, which the Kurds view as a hostile foreign intervention canadagoosejacket-outlet .

Turkey said this week canadian goose jacket that the final goal of its incursion into Syria was to cleanse a border region, including canada goose coats on sale Raqqa, of both Islamic State and canada goose replica Kurdish Canada Goose Outlet YPG militia fighters like it .

Northern Syria has become one of the most complicated battlefields of the multi sided war, with Islamic State fighting there canada goose clearance sale against the Syrian army, Turkish backed rebels, and the SDF.

Islamic State is fighting hard to preserve its foothold in central and eastern Syria as it loses ground in Iraq.

EXCLUSION Syrian Kurdish groups Buy nitrofurantoin and their allies have made moves towards autonomy in the absence of any international deal for Canada Goose Parka a political settlement to the nearly six year war.

They approved a blueprint for a system of federal government in northern Syria in late December, reaffirming their plans for autonomy in areas they control. Still, Kurdish leaders say an independent state is not the goal.

The United States has voiced opposition to the federal plan.

Elections foreseen canada goose clearance as part of the new federal system could take place in six months, Ahmed said, arguing that the model Canada Goose online of regional autonomy in northern Syria should be the basis for ending the entire Syrian conflict.

Ghosts and More

All About Voodoo, Voodoo Dolls and A Little Black MagicYou will find all that and more here. Plus some great canada goose store Videos of New Orleans, Cemetery’s, Vampires and more. I love to walk in the French Quarter canada goose replica of New Orleans after dark. All kinds of spooky thoughts come to your mind and you feel your heart beat faster. The dark alleys and European Style buildings will give you thoughts of Vampires, Voodoo, Black Magic and more. On a foggy night or just before or just after a thunderstorm its almost to spooky. Also there in the French Quarter you can find some of the best food in the world and if your lucky you might just see a ghost or two or at the very least you can eat in some cafes that are supposed to be haunted.

New Orleans is known for its ghost stories, and in the midst of the French Quarter is a Creole style mansion on Royal and Governor Nichol’s Streets that draws a lot of attention. It was once the home of Dr. Lalaurie and his wife Delphine. Katherine Smith, a New Orleans historian and tour guide for Haunted History Tours, documents the tale in Journey into Darkness: Ghosts and Vampires of New Orleans.

Delphine was a reputedly beautiful woman with long, black hair, and she and her husband were renowned for their extravagant parties. They had many slaves and seemed a respectable pair, but little did townspeople know what Madame Lalaurie did to make her slaves submissive. She Canada Goose Outlet had already been in court over charges of brutality, and on one occasion after complaints of abuse, several slaves had been removed from the home, but few people would speak out against this couple, so they were never arrested. Not even after a young girl jumped to her death from the second floor to escape her harsh mistress. Then one night in 1834, a fire brought a volunteer fire brigade to the home and the Lalauries’ gruesome secrets were discovered.

As they put out the flames, they could smell the stench of death, so they broke into a locked attic room to find a truly disgusting scene. According to several canada goose outlet toronto factory accounts, dead slaves were chained to the walls, but some were still alive and housed in cages, starved or maimed by medical canada goose deals experiments. One man had been surgically transformed into a woman, and a woman’s arm and leg bones had been broken and reset at odd angles. Another woman’s skin had been peeled off, while the lips of a third were sewn shut. A few had been dissected, canada goose black friday sale with their organs still exposed. Scattered around the room were pails full of body parts, organs, and severed heads.

Smith indicates that this building soon became known as “Haunted House,” and people avoided it. Although it is a beautiful residence in a desirable location, it sat vacant for forty years. Then several successive owners reported such canada goose coats problems that 2018 canada goose outlet it again sat vacant for a time. Stories include sightings of a large male in chains, a woman who shouts in French and carries a whip, pictures inside thrown from the walls, cameras not working, and furniture that moved around on its own. The current owner is aware of the tourists who Canada Goose Online come to see it, but requests privacy.

Among American cities, New Orleans may hold the record for hauntings, but others vie with it for that distinction. Savannah, Georgia is one of them. Segregation minimized the number of bi lingual African Americans (those who spoke basilect and fluent acrolect), and at the same time minimized the number of whites who could translate basilect well enough to discover Voodoo in the spoken, sung, or written words of middle class, working class or working poor African Americans. In isolated African American communities, such as the Georgia Sea Islands or in the Mississippi Delta, Voodoo lore could be freely referenced and practices, at least the more subtle ones, were more public.

Many popular songs of the Delta Blues tradition (circa 1900 to 1941) referenced voodoo or its derivitive Hoodoo explicitly. Robert Johnson sang of “hot foot powder sprinkled all round my door” and Muddy Water(s) referenced “the gypsy woman”, “seventh son”, and the “mojo hand”.

Scholars debate the variations of Voodoo, how they have survived, how much they have changed, and to what extent Christianity in general or Catholicism in particular were used as covers to enable the survival of Voodoo. A common saying is canada goose clearance sale that Haiti is 80% Roman Catholic, 20% Protestant, and 100% Vodou. Thus the Catholic contribution to Haitian Vodou is quite noticeable.

However, in the United States the story may be a little different, depending upon which scholarship you read. Some scholars believe confusion about Voodoo in the USA arises because there is a widespread system of African American folk belief and practice known as Hudu or more popularly as hoodoo. The similarity of the words hoodoo and Voodoo notwithstanding, hoodoo may have tenuous connections to organized religion like Vodou, but hoodoo may be an integral part of the Vodoun religion in West Africa and arguably throughout all of Africa. Some aspects of hoodoo may be derived primarily from Congo and Angolan practices of Central Africa, and may retain elements of the traditions and practices that arose among Bantu language speakers.

Today, possibly due to the suppression of the Voodoo buy canada goose jacket and Hoodoo traditions and Vodoun religion in the United States, most hoodoo ‘root workers’ are members of African American Protestant churches, but when hoodoo is compared to some of the African religions in the diaspora, the closest parallel is Cuban Palo, a survival of Congo religious beliefs.

In summary, Haitian Vudou is derived from West African religious traditions and was retained in modified form by enslaved Africans in the Caribbean who were captive in a mostly Catholic population. However, in the USA the Vodoun religion is derived from largely the Ewe and other West Buy zithromax 1 gram oral packet canada goose clearance and central African buy canada goose jacket cheap groups

Public relations wise, Vodou has come to be associated in the popular mind with such phenomena as “zombies” and “voodoo dolls.” While there is evidence of zombie creation, it is a minor phenomenon within rural Haitian culture and not a part of the Vodou religion as such. Such things fall under the auspices of the bokor or sorcerer rather than the priest of the Lwa.

The practice of sticking pins in dolls has history in European folk magic, but its exact origins are unclear. How it Canada Goose Parka became known as a method of cursing an individual by some followers of what has come to be called New Orleans Voodoo, which is a local variant of hoodoo, is a mystery. Some speculate that it was used as a means of self defense Canada Goose online to intimidate superstitious slave owners. This practice is not unique to New Orleans voodoo, however, and has as much basis in European based magical devices such as the poppet and the nkisi or bocio of West and Central Africa. These are in fact power objects, what in Haiti would be referred to as pwen, rather than magical surrogates for an intended target of sorcery whether for boon or for bane. Such voodoo dolls are not a feature of Haitian religion, although dolls intended for tourists may be found in the Iron Market in Port au Prince. The practice became closely associated with the Vodou religions in the public mind through the vehicle of horror movies and popular novels.

There is a practice in Haiti of nailing crude poppets with a discarded shoe on trees near the cemetery to act as messengers to the otherworld, which is very different in function from how poppets are portrayed as being used by voodoo worshippers in popular media and imagination, ie. for purposes of sympathetic magic towards another person. Another use of dolls in authentic Vodou canada goose practice is the incorporation of plastic doll babies in altars and objects used to represent or honor the spirits, or in pwen, which recalls the aforementioned use of bocio and nkisi figures in Africa.

Although Voodoo is often associated with Satanism, Satan is purely an Abrahamic belief and has not been incorporated in Voodoo tradition. When Mississippi Delta folk songs mix references to Voodoo and to Satan, what is being expressed is social pain such as from racism, which is couched in Christian terms and blamed on the devil. Those who practice voodoo do not worship or invoke the blessings of a devil.


First and foremost Voodoo is a religion. It is canadian goose jacket the dominant religion of Haiti. Many of the practices and descriptions of Voodoo belief may sound to us like rank superstition, but then, imagine the beliefs of Christianity to people who know nothing about it. Canada Goose sale Tell them about the trinity or the resurrection, or the presence of Jesus in the eucharist. Any of these practices which very intelligent Christians believe in the fullest would seem no less superstitious to someone unfamiliar with Christianity.

Thus I urge you to recognize that Voodoo is Haiti’s religion, it is taken very seriously not merely by unlettered peasants, but many intelligent and learned members of the Haitian society believe as sincerely in Voodoo as do German theology professors in their Christianity. In no way do I expect you to believe in Voodoo; no more than I would expect you to convert to Islam if I taught a course on that religion. But, please do recognize that it is every bit as real a religion as the major religions of the world.

The most basic concepts of Voodoo. There is one God, Bondye. This God is very similar to the God of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. There is only one God like web .

There are three important categories of other spiritual beings: lwa. These are the various spirits of family members; the spirits of the major forces of the universe good, evil, reproduction, health, all aspects of daily life. lwa interact with the people of earth.

They “mount” people now and again during religious ceremonies and they give messages, and even cause various good and bad things to happen to people.

The twins. A curious and rather mysterious set of forces of contradictories: good and evil, happy and sad etc. If honored now and again in cheap Canada Goose religious services they will tend to help you have the better side of life. The dead. Mainly the souls of one’s own family members who have died but have not yet been “reclaimed” by the family. Ignored family dead are dangerous. Honored and cared for family dead are helpful. The central and key aspect of Voodoo is healing people from illness. Such healing activities probably constitute 60% of all Voodoo activity. Healers heal with herbs, faith healing (with the help of lwa and other spirits) and, today, even with western medicine!

The priesthood of Voodoo contains both men (houngan) and women (mambo). Their functions are: healing. perform religious ceremonies to call or pacify the spirits. to hold initiations for new priests(tesses) (kanzo service and taking the ason). Telling the future and reading dreams. casting spells and creating protections. creating potions for various purposes. (From love spells to death spells.) For any of these they may receive fees. But, they may not too. This differs from one houngan and mambo to another. (Note his is similar to fees paid to rabbis, mullahs, priests and ministers.)

Another central feature of Voodoo is the “service,” the religious rites of the religion https://www.officialcanadagoosesoutlet.ca . These are usually held outside, under a rough roof and around the “poto mitan,” the center pole. A houngan or mambo almost always directs these. Drums are used extensively to provide music and dancing is absolutely essential to the whole service. Services are fully participatory. Not only the houngan and mambo participate but nearly everyone present. A master of ceremonies (La Place) is often present. A hounganikon directs canada goose coats on sale the music and motion. Hounsi (women only) are serving ladies, usually dressed in white. Those in attendance are nearly all participants and most can be “mounted” by lwa. In most services the lwa “mount” people. That is, they come and take over a person’s body for a time. When the lwa come the person is gone. (It’s not clear where the person goes.) The body is the body of the person, but it is really the lwa. If a male lwa mounts a female person, he is referred to as “he,” not she, during the mounting. Nearly every Voodoo service has animal sacrifice. By killing the animal Canada Goose Jackets one releases life. The lwa are exhausted by the taxing task of running the universe. Thus they can receive this life sacrificed to them and are re juvenated. They are usually quite happy about this. There are two primary sorts of Voodoo. Rada. This is a family spirit Voodoo and the Voodoo of the relatively peaceful and happy lwa. Petro. (In some areas called Congo.) This is a black magic Voodoo and the Voodoo of angry, mean and nasty lwa. Dangerous things happen in Petro including death curses, the making of zombi and wild sexual orgies SPECIAL NOTE By virtually all scholarly estimates one can find, Rada accounts for about 95% of Voodoo, if not more. Thus the spectacular tales of black magic, while very real, are extremely limited. Petro is not the typical Voodoo, but it does exist. The analysis of humans. Humans have two spirits and a body. ti bon ange (little good angel). This is similar to the conscience in the Western understanding of people. canada goose outlet store locations gros bon ange (big good angel). This is similar to the soul in Western theories of person, except the soul is much more separate from the person than is a western soul. For example, when the person goes before God for judgment it is the gros bon ange which presents “the person” to God and makes the person’s case. Key terms in Voodoo hounfo the parish or region of a houngan or mambo’s Canada Goose Coats On Sale influence.

govi a small earthen bottle into which the gros bon ange of dead ancestors can “rescued.” After a person dies the gros bon ange goes to the underwater place. A year and a day after he or she goes their the relatives can recall the gros bon ange. Unfortunately this is a very expensive service, requiring a significant animal sacrifice, often an ox. Thus it is often considerable time before the service can be done.

Culture of Canada

The culture of Canada is a term that embodies the artistic, culinary, literary, humour, musical, political canada goose deals and social elements that are representative of Canada and Canadians. Throughout Canada’s history, its culture has been influenced by European culture and traditions, especially British and French, and by its own indigenous cultures.[1] Over time, elements of the cultures of Canada’s immigrant populations have become incorporated into mainstream Canadian culture.[1][2] The population has Canada Goose Online also been influenced by American culture because of a shared language, proximity, television and migration between the two countries.[3][4]

Canada is often characterized as being “very progressive, diverse, and multicultural” related website .[5] Canada’s federal government has canada goose often been described as the instigator of multicultural ideology because of its public emphasis on the social importance of immigration.[6] Canada’s culture draws from its broad range of constituent nationalities, buy canada goose jacket cheap and policies that promote a just society are constitutionally protected.[7] Canadian Government policies such as publicly funded health care; higher and more progressive taxation; outlawing capital punishment; strong efforts to eliminate poverty; an emphasis on cultural diversity; strict gun control; and canada goose replica most recently, legalizing same sex Canada Goose Parka marriage are social indicators of Canada’s political and cultural values.[8] Canadians identify with the country’s institutions of health care, military peacekeeping, the National park system and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.[9][10]

The Canadian government has influenced culture with programs, laws and institutions. It has created crown corporations to promote Canadian culture through media, such as the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and the National Film Board of Canada (NFB), and Canada Goose Jackets promotes many events which it considers to promote Canadian traditions. It has also tried to protect Canadian culture by setting legal minimums on Canadian content in many media using bodies canada goose store like the Canadian Radio television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC).[11]

For thousands of years Canada has been inhabited by indigenous peoples from a variety of different cultures and of several major linguistic groupings.[12] Although not without conflict and bloodshed, early European interactions with First Canada Goose online Nations and Inuit populations in what is now Canada were arguably peaceful.[13] First Nations and Mtis peoples played a critical part in the development of European colonies in Canada, particularly for their role in assisting European coureur Canada Goose Outlet des bois and voyageurs in the exploration of the continent during the North American cheap Canada Goose fur trade https://www.canadagooseonlineshop.co.uk .[14] Combined with late economic development in many regions, this comparably nonbelligerent early history allowed indigenous Canadians to have a lasting influence on the national culture (see: The Canadian Crown and Aboriginal peoples).[15] Over the course of three centuries, countless North American Indigenous words, inventions, concepts, and games have become an canadian goose jacket everyday part of Canadian language and use.[16] Many places in Canada, both natural features and human habitations, use canada goose coats on sale indigenous names. The name “Canada” itself derives from the St. Canada that sexual orientation should be “read in” to Section Fifteen of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, a part of the Constitution of Canada guaranteeing equal rights to all Canadians.[43] Following a series of decisions by provincial courts and the Supreme Court of Canada, on July 20, 2005, the Civil Marriage Act (Bill C 38) received Royal Assent, canada goose outlet store locations legalizing same canada goose clearance sex marriage in Canada.[44] Canada thus became the fourth country to officially sanction same sex marriage worldwide, after The Netherlands, Belgium, and Spain.[45] Furthermore, sexual orientation was included as a protected status in the human rights laws of the federal government and of all provinces and territories.[46]

Today, Canada has a diverse makeup of ethnicities and nationalities and constitutional protection for policies that promote multiculturalism rather than cultural assimilation or a single national myth.[47] In Quebec, cultural identity is strong, and many French speaking commentators speak of a Quebec culture as distinguished from English Canadian culture[48] and other French Canadian cultures. However, as a whole, Canada is in theory, a cultural mosaic a collection of several regional, aboriginal, and ethnic subcultures.[49][50] Celtic (Scottish and Irish) influences have allowed survival of non English dialects in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland;[51] Canada’s Pacific trade has also brought a large Chinese influence into British Columbia and other areas.[52] Multiculturalism in Canada was adopted as the official policy of the Canadian government during the prime ministership of Pierre Trudeau, and is enshrined in Section 27 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.[53][54] In parts of Canada, especially the major cities of Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto, multiculturalism itself is the cultural norm in many urban communities.[55]Main article: Canadian values

Canadian values are the commonly shared ethical and 2018 canada goose outlet human values of Canada. The major political parties have claimed explicitly that they uphold these values, but use generalities to canada goose outlet toronto factory specify them. Those qualities are what make us the first postnational state.[56]

Numerous scholars, beginning with Seymour Martin Lipset in the 1940s, have tried to identify, measure and compare them with other countries, buy canada goose jacket especially the United States.[57][58] However, there are critics who say Canada Goose Coats On Sale that such a task is practically impossible.[59]Main article: Canadian identity

Canada’s large geographic size, the presence of a significant number of indigenous peoples, the conquest of one European linguistic population by another and relatively open immigration policy have led to an extremely diverse society. It has likewise often been Canada Goose sale suggested that anti Americanism plays a prominent role in Canadian nationalist ideologies.[67] A unified, bi cultural, tolerant and sovereign Canada remains an ideological inspiration to many Canadian nationalists.[68] Alternatively French Canadian nationalism and support for maintaining French Canadian culture would inspire Quebec nationalists, many of whom were supporters of the Quebec sovereignty movement during the canada goose clearance sale late 20th century.[69]

Cultural protectionism in Canada has, since the mid 20th century, taken the form of conscious, interventionist attempts on the part Doxycycline how much does it cost of canada goose coats various Canadian governments canada goose black friday sale to promote Canadian cultural production.[70] Sharing a large border and (for the majority) a common language with the United States, Canada faces a difficult position in regard to American culture, be it direct attempts at the Canadian market or the general diffusion of American culture in the globalized media arena. While Canada tries to maintain its cultural differences, it also must balance this with responsibility in trade arrangements such as the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).[71].
