Indian-based dancing a multicultural experience for well-being
Right before the credits begin to roll, the viewer is treated to an upbeat and energetic dance number — one definitely not lacking in flair or style. Danny Boyle's 2008 film "Slumdog Millionaire" certainly ended on a high note.
This scene was one of North America's first mainstream exposures to what is known as Bollywood dance.
Originating from Mumbai, India, Bollywood dance is a mixture of classical and Indian folk-dancing styles, amongst many others.
Raw energy collides with a release of cathartic enjoyment as palms fly in many directions, embracing the moment.

A little research can go a long way in deciding what to eat
Thanks to a class assignment, I had the opportunity to examine where my food comes from. While a lot of foods don't list the exact origin (especially processed, packaged foods — good luck with that) most produce lists the country they came from.
In my family, we usually order our produce from Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery (SPUD), a service that delivers fresh, organic food to your door after you order it online. SPUD offers a list of where your produce came from with every receipt, including the approximate total miles your order travelled.

Tracing your food from its source
As you read in Silvia's post a couple weeks ago, her and I had a school assignment to find out where the food we eat comes from. I went through my cupboards and fridge and had some mind-blowing (both good and bad) experiences as I began to read the labels. Here is my journey:
My first shock came when I typed thegreenery.com into my web browser. This was the website of the company who imported the package of a red, yellow and orange pepper I had purchased. The label said my peppers had been imported from Mexico and The Greenery was a company out of Philadelphia.

Dietician shares advice
I remember opening the front door after a long day of school, and the aroma of my mother's roast slowly cooking would consume me. It smelled as if she toiled over a stove all day to prepare the evening's delectable meal.
But the truth is she was just as busy as we were. Suppertime was always a top priority but never a cause for concern in our house — because my mother prized the crock pot.
One of our household favourites was a classic cut of roast, sided with herb-infused potatoes and carrots that just fell apart in your mouth.

Performances take place March 15 and 16 at the University of Calgary
Jonathan Brower came out to his family and friends last June and is already taking the stage at the University of Calgary's Coming Out Monologues to share his story.
"I come from an evangelical background, so my story's quite serious," Brower said. "I think that's probably why I put humour into my monologue, so that it was a little easier to approach.
"If I were talking just about what happened in the church, it would be very heavy. My monologue sort of takes a comedic look at coming out as this big, giant thing and says, 'How big of a deal is it?'"
