    One of the most important tools in any kitchen, is the Chef Knife and throughout the years I have tried to continuously improve the quality of my cutlery all around the kitchen. This is my 3rd unboxing video I have done on the channel and this knife is a bit different than the previous two in a few things. For one it is a 9.5" chef knife which is the biggest chef knife I own. I love reading into the different knife-making techniques and also learn about how the knives are forged.

  • Lawrence of Arabia captures Damascus - 10/1/1918

    Twenty-eight years after the untimely death of T. E. Lawrence — the Englishman known the world over as "Lawrence of Arabia" — Hollywood made a movie about him. It was, in the parlance of the day, a “doozy.” Epic in scale and scope and concerning the extraordinary particulars of Lawrence’s role in the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire leading up to World War 1, "Lawrence of Arabia" was nominated for ten Academy Awards in 1963 and took home seven including Best Picture. Though many with first hand knowledge of the true events of Lawrence’s life were quick to criticize the film’s dramatic liberties, much of the frisson that makes it a cinematic tour de force arises from the undeniably ambiguous nature of the man himself. T. E. Lawrence was a poet, an archeologist, a diplomat and a sp...

A video which captures a hadra in Damascus 1996 with Shaykh Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri (1912 – Damascus 2004). Shaykh Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri was a well known Shaykh of tazkiyah and master of tasawwuf from the Hashimi-Darqawi branch of the Shadhili tariqa http://notesonislam.blogspot.com/2014/09/shaykh-abd-al-rahman-al-shaghouri.html Shaykh Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri Abd al-Rahman al-Shaghouri (Homs 1912 – Damascus 2004) was a Syrian Sufi master of the Hashimi-Darqawi branch of the Shadhili tariqa, as well as poet, textile worker, and trade unionist. His life and work Born in Homs in 1912, al-Shaghouri was soon orphaned and moved to Damascus with his brother. As a child, he worked as an errand boy and later as a weaver. He attended the lessons of the major scholars of Damascus: Husni al-Baghghal, Muhammad Barakat, 'Ali al-Daqar, Ismail al-Tibi, and Lutfi al-Hanafi. However, his most important teacher was Muhammad al-Hashimi, an Algerian Sufi from Tlemcen who had already been living in Syria for twenty years before becoming the representative of Shaykh Ahmad al-Alawi, spiritual master of the Shadhili tariqa. Al-Shaghouri himself met al-Alawi in 1932 in Damascus, but it was al-Hashimi who served as his spiritual guide. Finding that al-Shaghouri was already suitable, al-Hashimi placed him in a spiritual retreat. On the first day, al-Shaghouri pledged himself to al-Hashimi's guidance, an unusual if not unprecedented occurrence in Sufi instruction and discipleship. His Teaching He never stopped teaching. He once entered the head office of a small religious academy in Damascus with a group of his students and sat down to talk to the director, who bade him wait until he finished some things that were apparently urgent. One thing seemed to lead to another, and the phone kept ringing. SheikhAbd al-Rahman waited patiently, while his disciples, as the minutes drew on, became less and less so. Finally, the principal of the school set aside his work, looked up at the sheikh and apologized with a smile, and put himself at the sheikh’s service. The sheikh thanked him, asked him how he was, and then said, “I just wanted to make a phone call.” After a short call, he got up, thanked the principal, and left with his disciples. They had needed a lesson in patience and manners, and the sheikh had given them one. Practice was the aim of the sheikh’s knowledge. Imam Abul Hasan al-Shadhili (d. 654/1258), whose order the sheikh belonged to, would not let his disciples beg, but had them earn their own livelihood, and Sheikh ‘Abd al-Rahman emphasized the importance of having a trade to earn one’s living by the work of one’s hand. He used to say, “I hope to pass on from this world without having taken a single piaster from anyone: I don’t even take from my own children.” We had sat on the edge of a pallet on a narrow wooden bed in a room with a single window, whence light shone down on us, and the sheikh was answering a few questions I had on the last day of my first khalwa. “Will we be together in the next world?” I had asked. “All those who attained marifa, gnosis of the Divine, in this life,” he said, “shall have a special place in paradise by a white dune of musk. Our Lord shall manifest Himself to them once a week, and they will remain drunken with the vision of it for the entire week, when He shall appear to them again, and hence ever shall it be.” “We never speak of three things: this world, women, or politics.” His weakness and death Despite his later physical weakness, he never stopped receiving visitors or attending the weekly hadra at the Nur al-Din al-Shahid mosque, in the old quarter of Damascus. He died on 8 June 2004. A great crowd gathered to attend his funeral at the mosque dedicated to Shaykh Muhy al-Din Ibn al-Arabi. The funeral prayer was led by Habib Ali al-Jifri, from Yemen, a well-known representative of traditional scholarship and Sufism in Arab media. His death was widely mourned by scholars and laymen alike, and he was widely recognized as one of the most important revivers of the Shadhili tariqa and Sufism in general, particularly in Syria. His legacy and renown has also become widespread (particularly in the English-speaking world) through two American students whom he authorized in the Shadhili tariqa, Nuh Ha Mim Keller and Zaid Shakir.

SOUNDBITE: (French) Danilo, 24, Italian student: "For me it's important because I come from southern Italy, which the Arabs once controlled, so that has remained in the dialect and in the culture, so it's very interesting." 20.

There are more and more people who want to get into our institute, let's hope it's thanks to our good (teaching) methods." 25 .

Webber leaving the garden STORYLINE: Thomas Webber is the only American citizen still living in Damascus according to the Czech Embassy. The Embassy which has handled US interests in Syria since 2012 has also warned the 71-year-old to be careful due to anti-American sentiment and the risk of car bombings and other attacks. Although Webber said there is no way he is leaving. Webber teaches English in a high school in Damascus and several times a week shares his love of Charles Dickens with teenagers from the French-speaking Lycee Charles-de-Gaulle. He was born and raised in Orchard Park, New York, a suburb of Buffalo. His father was a German railyard master and his mother was a Polish nurse. He was living in California when he was offered a job teaching science at Damascus Community School, a private American academy. Webber arrived in Damascus in 1975, and went on to convert to Islam and marry a Syrian woman. Except for a brief stint teaching in Iran, he has lived in Syria ever since. In the chaotic early months of the conflict when foreigners fled, fearing kidnappings and bombings, Webber and his wife began taking strong precautionary measures which included doing a lot more together so they weren't alone and checking the car for bombs. The security situation in the capital has improved since then, and over the past week a US and Russian-brokered cease-fire has brought about the first major lull in the fighting. Although Webber has no plans to leave the place he has called home for more than four decades. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/f2f2a8df202cb35d56dabde64e167e22 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

One of the most important tools in any kitchen, is the Chef Knife and throughout the years I have tried to continuously improve the quality of my cutlery all around the kitchen. This is my 3rd unboxing video I have done on the channel and this knife is a bit different than the previous two in a few things. For one it is a 9.5" chef knife which is the biggest chef knife I own. I love reading into the different knife-making techniques and also learn about how the knives are forged. There are knives that are still forged in fire by hand, which I find really amazing. Orient Knife for Sale on Amazon: https://goo.gl/Ze4s6U

Twenty-eight years after the untimely death of T. E. Lawrence — the Englishman known the world over as "Lawrence of Arabia" — Hollywood made a movie about him. It was, in the parlance of the day, a “doozy.” Epic in scale and scope and concerning the extraordinary particulars of Lawrence’s role in the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire leading up to World War 1, "Lawrence of Arabia" was nominated for ten Academy Awards in 1963 and took home seven including Best Picture. Though many with first hand knowledge of the true events of Lawrence’s life were quick to criticize the film’s dramatic liberties, much of the frisson that makes it a cinematic tour de force arises from the undeniably ambiguous nature of the man himself. T. E. Lawrence was a poet, an archeologist, a diplomat and a spy. He spoke French well enough to translate whole volumes of its literature to English. He spoke Arabic well enough to forge alliances between feuding Bedouin tribes. The question of his sexuality has been a matter of scholarly gossip for the better part of a century. Setting his extreme need for personal privacy against his talent for finding the center of world-changing events, the journalist Lowell Thomas famously commented that Lawrence "had a genius for backing into the limelight." But for all that's debatable about T. E. Lawrence, many of his military superlatives are accurately recorded and unquestionable. As a British Army advisor to Arab Prince Faisal, Lawrence helped organize — and in many cases participated — in a number of the most pivotal maneuvers of the Arab Revolt. We was, to use a modern term, as deeply embedded amongst the tribes of the Arabian Peninsula as the necessity of his assignment required, perhaps more than his superiors in the British Army would deem advisable, certainly beyond what Edwardian cultural empathy could possibly conceive.
