Network Rail will lose control over Britain’s train tracks as power is handed to private operators in a major shake-up of the railway system, the Government is reportedly to announce next week. The move, which would mark the biggest change to the running of the rail network in decades, would see British rail companies such as Virgin Trains and Southern becoming responsible for repairs and maintenance for the first time, ending state-owned Network Rail’s monopoly. Transport minister Chris Grayling will announce the plans in a speech to the Conservative think tank Policy Exchange on Tuesday, according to The Daily Telegraph. The Government hopes this shift of control will incentivise train companies to carry out repairs more quickly and possibly bring in cheaper fares, . READ MORE Train fares set to rise by average of 2.3% Train fares are going up again and here's what you're paying for Network Rail pulls human rights advert for being 'too political' Network Rail fined £4 million after actress dies at level crossing Easter weekend: Record number of engineering works on UK railways It comes as the rail industry announced train fares would go up by an average of 2.3 per cent – more than double the rate of inflation – from 2 January 2017, with some unregulated fares likely to result in fares rise of considerably more. Currently Britain’s train tracks are owned by Network Rail while trains are controlled by completely separate companies. Mr Grayling has spoken previously of his lack of confidence in the railway system and his desire to give train operators more control. As the Conservatives’ front-bench transport spokesman 10 years ago, he said: “We think, with hindsight, that the complete separation of track and train into separate businesses at the time of privatisation was not right for our railways. “The separation has helped push up the cost of running the railways – and hence fares – and has slowed decisions about capacity improvements. “Too many people and organisations are now involved in getting things done – so nothing happens.” In publicity material sent out ahead of the speech, Policy Exchange reportedly said Mr Grayling’s vision will “put the passenger at its heart, ensuring that journeys are safe, quick, and provide value for money”. For Labour, shadow transport secretary Andy McDonald said that “privatising” the rail infrastructure would be an “irresponsible move”. “The last thing our railways need is another layer of fragmentation and complexity. Train operating companies will only engage with this if they can extract more profit from taxpayers and fare-payers,” he said. “It's remarkable that operators such as Southern who display a cavalier attitude towards cost-cutting and safety might be invited to take responsibility for the repair and maintenance of the tracks. Since his election last month, they have struggled to understand who is advising Donald Trump on Asia and what his China policy will look like. This move will turn concern into alarm and anger. Beijing sees Taiwan as a province. Denying it any of the trappings of an independent state is one of the key priorities of Chinese foreign policy. Read more from Carrie: The Trump phone call that will stun Beijing Mild reaction - Cindy Sui, BBC, Taipei China's reaction is relatively mild. It doesn't want to get off on the wrong foot with Mr Trump. And it sees Mr Trump as an inexperienced politician, so for now it's willing to forgive him and not play this up. It may also be somewhat reassured by statements from the US that its policy on China and Taiwan has not changed. But behind the scenes it's safe to say China is working hard to "educate" the Trump team on not repeating such diplomatic faux pas. This move by Taiwan's President Tsai will further infuriate Beijing and make it distrust her even more and see her as favouring Taiwan's formal independence from China. World-changing ideas summit With our powers of reasoning, rich memories and the ability to imagine what the future might hold, human intelligence is unequalled in the animal kingdom. Our closest relatives, chimpanzees, are adept problem solvers, making their own tools to reach food, for example. They use sophisticated gestures and facial expressions to communicate. Yet, they fall a long way short of our own ability to think and plan for the future. Thomas Suddendorf, a psychologist at the University of Queensland, describes this as the gap – the cognitive gulf that separates us from animals. But it was not always so wide, he says in the video above. Our species once shared the planet with other hominins with intelligence that may have rivaled our own. Their extinction was at least partly due to the actions of our own ancestors, according to many anthropologists. We need to be careful not to make the same mistakes again and widen the gap between the species even further in our pursuit of progress, warns Suddendorf, who spoke to BBC Future at the World-Changing Ideas Summit in Sydney on 15 November.

Cracked fields stretch away towards the Moroccan desert to the south. Yet the barren landscape is no longer quite as desolate as it once was. This year it became home to one of the world’s biggest solar power plants. Welcome to Future Now Your essential guide to a world in flux Change happens quickly these days and it can be hard to keep up. That’s why BBC Future has launched a new section called Future Now to bring you in-depth stories about the people, events and trends that are shaping our world.

We hope you will join us as we explore the changes that matter. Hundreds of curved mirrors, each as big as a bus, are ranked in rows covering 1,400,000 sq m (15m sq ft) of desert, an area the size of 200 football fields. The massive complex sits on a sun-blasted site at the foot of the High Atlas mountains, 10km (6 miles) from Ouarzazate – a city nicknamed the door to the desert. With around 330 days of sunshine a year, it’s an ideal location. As well as meeting domestic needs, Morocco hopes one day to export solar energy to Europe. This is a plant that could help define Africa's – and the world’s – energy future.

An occasional off day is not a concern, however. After many years of false starts, solar power is coming of age as countries in the sun finally embrace their most abundant source of clean energy. The Moroccan site is one of several across Africa and similar plants are being built in the Middle East – in Jordan, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. The falling cost of solar power has made it a viable alternative to oil even in the most oil-rich parts of the world. As well as meeting domestic needs, Morocco hopes one day to export solar energy to Europe. Noor 1, the first phase of the Moroccan plant, has already surpassed expectations in terms of the amount of energy it has produced. It is an encouraging result in line with Morocco’s goal to reduce its fossil fuel bill by focusing on renewables while still meeting growing energy needs that are increasing by about 7% per year. Morocco’s stable government and economy has helped it secure funding: the European Union contributed 60% of the cost for the Ouarzazate project, for example. (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) With around 330 days of sunshine a year, the region around Ouarzazate - a city nicknamed the door to the desert - is an ideal location (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) The country plans to generate 14% of its energy from solar by 2020 and by adding other renewable sources like wind and water into the mix, it is aiming to produce 52% of its own energy by 2030. This puts Morocco more or less in line with countries like the UK, which wants to generate 30% of its electricity from renewables by the end of the decade, and the US, where President Obama set a target of 20% by 2030. (Trump has threatened to dump renewables, but his actions may not have a huge impact. Many policies are controlled by individual states and big companies have already started to switch to cleaner and cheaper alternatives.) Due to the lack sun on the day I visit, the hundreds of mirrors stand still and silent. The team keeps a close eye on weather forecasts to predict output for the following day, allowing other sources of energy to take over when it is overcast. The reflectors can be heard as they move together to follow the sun like a giant field of sunflowers But normally the reflectors can be heard as they move together to follow the Sun like a giant field of sunflowers. The mirrors focus the Sun’s energy onto a synthetic oil that flows through a network of pipes. Reaching temperatures up to 350C (662F), the hot oil is used to produce high-pressure water vapour that drives a turbine-powered generator. “It’s the same classic process used with fossil fuels, except that we are using the Sun’s heat as the source,” says Bayed. The plant keeps generating energy after sunset, when electricity demands peak. Some of the day’s energy is stored in reservoirs of superhot molten salts made of sodium and potassium nitrates, which keeps production going for up to three hours. In the next phase of the plant, production will continue for up to eight hours after sunset.

We don’t want to see a return to the bad old days of Railtrack.” Response to the reported plans on social media has been widely of concern and anger. One Twitter user said: “Government idea to turn Network Rail back into rail track in private hands to save money risks safety. Not a good idea!” Another tweet was more blunt, saying: “Government hands track repairs to profiteering Virgin and Southern. Deaths will result.” More about: Network RailtrainsRailwayVirginSouthernChris Graylingprivatisation “Whisky is all about education, understanding and driving flavour exploration,” says Greg Dillon, spirits connoisseur and editor of the Great Drams blog. “The depth of flavour, the variety and the intrigue of whisky is what is driving the trend towards whisky being a great accompaniment to meals.” Clearly, wine isn’t the only drink capable of being the perfect match for food. Whisky is gaining in popularity as the ideal partner for a range of dishes, from light starters to desserts. The many flavour descriptions vary from light to full-bodied; from a touch of sweetness and fruit, to more complex and bold with strong peat, earthy and smoky notes. Whisky is a great match for seafood, cheese, smoked and roasted meats, and desserts. The lighter styles fare better with smoked salmon and sushi, while medium-bodied whiskies work with smoked fish such as mackerel. Very few of us can claim to never tell a lie, but what if there was a way of spotting a liar without a lie-detector test? A new study has discovered which of us are actually most likely to be liars, and it’s bad news for young, single men. The study of 3,349 Americans of “all major ethnic, incomes, and geographic regions” by Curtin University, Australia, sought to discover whether there’s a link between socio-economic status and lying, and it drew some very specific conclusions. READ MORE 10 uncomfortable truths no one wants to admit All the lies and mistruths Trump told during the US election campaign Strict parenting turns children into liars, experts claim Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump is a pathological liar The researchers found that the most likely liars are young, unmarried men prone to road rage and with low levels of education - as well as asking about lying, respondents were asked questions such as “have you ever given someone the finger in traffic?” Lead study author Arch Woodside explained to the Huffington Post that a young male with low education isn’t enough to determine how prolific a liar he is, “but a young male with low education who engages in antisocial behaviour such as road rage, well by now you can be pretty sure he is.” However the second most likely group of liars is female - specifically, young, married women with low levels of education who’ve attained a high income. Woodside suggested these could be “women who have married into money.” Presumably they could also simply be women who have earned their own fortunes despite low levels of education. The world's most notorious liars 10 (CNN)The next possible US secretary of defense went by the military call sign "Chaos." Revered by his troops as a "warrior monk" with a knack for hard-edged quips, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis led troops in Afghanistan in 2001, won laurels for leadership in one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq War and most recently headed US Central Command, perhaps the military's most complicated and challenging post. Now, Mattis faces an entirely different kind of fight. As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to formally nominate the former four-star to head the Pentagon, some Democrats are signaling his confirmation might not be entirely easy. Some observers question whether Mattis' battlefield experience prepares him for the very different task of running an enormous bureaucracy, while senior lawmakers worry about what the 66-year-old's nomination means for maintaining civilian control of the military. Republicans issued glowing testimonials to Mattis and his career. California Rep. Devin Nunes, who heads the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said he could think of "no better candidate to lead America's military in our long fight against jihadism and countering other pressing threats." Noting that Mattis hasn't been out of uniform long enough to lead the Pentagon without a congressional waiver, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said that while he "would make an excellent Secretary of Defense, we must also bear in mind the precedent we would be setting and the impact it would have on the principle of civilian leadership of our nation's military." Donald Trump speaks with Taiwan's President Kirsten Gillibrand, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee subcommittee on personnel, was more definitive. "Civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy," Gillibrand said in a statement Thursday, "and I will not vote for an exception to this rule." Just one senator can demand that the waiver for Mattis meet a 60-vote threshold, meaning he would need to get the support of all Republicans and eight Democrats to move toward confirmation next year. If he's approved, Mattis would be the highest-ranking former officer to serve as defense secretary. The Washington State native and history major led troops through the conflicts in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq. From 2010 to 2013, he led Central Command, which oversees the Middle East and Southeast Asia, until the Obama administration let him go over disagreements on Iran. The White House was pushing for a nuclear deal with Tehran in 2013, the same year Mattis was telling the Aspen Security Forum that his top concern as Centcom commander was "Iran, Iran, Iran." Obama to sign Iran sanctions bill Mattis has since been critical of the deal and of the Obama administration's refusal to engage more aggressively in the Middle East, saying it has fueled extremism in the region. In 2015, he told a congressional panel that the US needed to come out of its "reactive crouch" in the Middle East and defend its values. Indeed, Mattis has not been known to mince words. He's affectionately known as "Mad Dog" by troops who trade his quips like prized baseball cards. On the news of his nomination, many of those sayings instantly became memes on Twitter. Among them: "a good soldier follows orders, but a true warrior wears his enemy's skin like a poncho," and "be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet." Human Rights Watch called on Congress to fully examine his views on a number of issues. "Media accounts suggest that Gen. Mattis doesn't agree with President-elect Trump's more outrageous campaign proposals, such as bringing back waterboarding, targeting terrorist suspects' family members, or tampering with anti-torture laws," said Washington director Sarah Margon. She urged that during the confirmation process "senators make sure Mattis unreservedly repudiates these proposals, acknowledges that they are illegal, and confirms that they are not up for future consideration." Mattis is one of a slew of generals Trump has been considering for other Cabinet-level jobs, including Gen. David Petraeus for the State Department, Gen. John Kelly to head Homeland Security and Adm. Mike Rogers as the director of national intelligence. Erin Simpson, a national security consultant and senior editor at WarontheRocks.com, said the incoming administration may be trying to capitalize on public respect for the military by considering so many generals. But "where there are really weak civilian institutions and an inexperienced president, it just doesn't sit right by me," said Simpson. The silver lining, she adds, is that many military and security professionals wary of Trump may be convinced to serve under Mattis. "It provides some top-cover for other qualified folks to come in who might not have otherwise," Simpson said. "There are a lot of jobs to fill at the Pentagon, this could bring in some talent and that's a net gain." show all And if you want to have an honest conversation with someone, go to an unmarried woman over the age of 70 as they were found to lie the least. The study categorised “big liars” as those of us who tell 12 significant lies per year, and it found that just 13 per cent of people tell 58 per cent of all lies. In contrast, 21 per cent of us try to live our lives without lying. Woodside explained to Broadly that although most of us think we know ourselves well, we really don’t, and “such thinking may be the biggest lie of all." big computer companies aren't happy about it! Is your computer painfully slow? Have you considered buying a new 'faster' computer but the price of even a basic one makes you cringe? Do you wish there was a cheaper, more affordable way to get a new computer? (Hint: there is – keep reading.)

It can be done. “Seizing the opportunities available at university is a valuable way for students to boost their career prospects, as well as giving them a richer university experience,” says Maggie Westgarth, head of employability and enterprise at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol). Here are some suggestions for how to do it: Work placements “They enable students to apply their skills in a real-world environment and see the impact their skills can have on an organisation or industry,” says Westgarth. “Employers value this level of work experience and it gives students a significant advantage in the jobs market.” Volunteer, work or study overseas “The number of new experiences that come from living in a different country and culture is extraordinary and can make a CV stand out from the crowd,” says Westgarth. “Someone who has spent time abroad during their studies will be able to talk about experiences and skills that will be unlike any other candidate.” Get involved in sports and societies Graduate recruiters stress how important this is, says Katie Seymour-Smith, senior career consultant at the University of Derby. “Not only does it expose students to a wider skill set, networking opportunities and skill application, but it contributes towards building confidence and resilience.” And it’s fun, too. Get advice from a range of people Different people – parents, friends, lecturers, employers – will have different perspectives on the world of work, according to Tom Staunton, careers consultant at the University of Derby. To help you filter all that information, he suggests seeing a professional careers adviser. “They can help you think through the different advice you have been given, work out what it means for you and what you could do about it,” he says. Mind your surrounding READ MORE SPONSORED Giving graduates a head start in business “Don’t bury your head in the sand - there’s always something going on around campus,” says Alison Armstrong, a careers advisor at Bournemouth University. That might be a careers workshop, a volunteering opportunity at the union or an event hosted by an employer. Look out for employability awards, too. “These are structured programmes designed to help you get the most out of your time at university,” she adds. Be a part of the wider uni community “Get as involved as possible with uni life,” says Armstrong. It’s not just societies – getting involved with student papers and radio stations can be great fun and build great skills. “Volunteer for opportunities such as becoming a student rep,” adds Armstrong. “This will develop and demonstrate leadership, negotiation and team-working skills.” This can be with fellow students on forums, but Jack Wallington, community director at The Student Room suggests casting the net wider as well. “It’s good to connect with lecturers, guest speakers or anyone you’ve worked alongside, as by getting to know them you’re likely to get introduced to even more people in the industry,” he says. Tap your uni's alumni network as well. “These people have first-hand experiences and advice to offer on how to break into your chosen field,” he adds.

I look up at the sky searching for the stars that would someday guide me back to you. Stars that I could not see in clear skies, now cloaked in fog. I press the button and hear the metal scrape as the elevator rises behind the glass doors. Its open doors urging me to enter the nether world. I drag my bags in, things that I couldn’t let go while letting go of things that I did not want to let go. The doors close behind me. A promise of love, life, or death that will remain unfulfilled until the day I return, to never leave again. Goodbye San Francisco. SHARE READ MORE The Castro We walk in sync. You lead, and I wander across nameless streets. You talk, I listen and let you into my soul. You kiss, and I cave in, let you inside me. We talk, and we listen as you drift away from me. You sleep, and I still hear you breathe. Whisper truth in your dreams, that will foul like your breath in awakening. I hear your heart beat, tell tales of lovers. Your hand lies on my breast, skin that no longer feels like another. I taste like you, smell like you. Just as you do. Tonight we sleep as lovers, for tomorrow at the crossroads, you will leave me a stranger. Nameless, faceless, soulless. Like the one thousand lovers before me.

Maggots crawl over you, writhing in slime. Your swollen fingers curled above the dirt, reaching out. Waiting for me to grasp them. To pull you out or to drag me in.

Just like before. SHARE READ MORE What's In Your Head? It's spring. Three seasons have passed since we met and the chill of our winter no longer gives me the goose bumps. I find your name in my phone book and hit delete. I pick up your red shirt, all wrinkled up, and add it to the ones that would shelter the homeless. Collect the shriveled flowers from the blue vase and bury them in the compost heap. I look for the book with the note you left. Would leave it at the park bench. Maybe, the one in the red shirt would find it. Pictures are easier to get rid of. I have one final look before I hit the keys. Must remember to delete the backups. A search in my inbox finds your words. They are deleted forever. Pick up your gray toothbrush and trash it. Finally, you're out of my life. But I still can’t get you out of my mind. SHARE READ MORE The Search. I went down to the street that began it all, the aptly named, Road Number One. Got off at the sandwich bar and headed to the video store next to it. Staring at the titles in languages I couldn’t speak, I awaited the visitor who would never arrive to share a subtle kiss that no one could see. The cashier smiled at me reading my thoughts as I read hers. I headed to the coffee shop where I sat alone facing the exit. I hate coffee or maybe the milk in it. I wander about feigning a lack of destination, seeking you in the places that we were found. Hoping to see you again so we can walk through each other. Yes. You are gone.

My heart kept pounding. I heard your footsteps fade away. I lost you somewhere on the way. I smiled, still reeling at the sharp taste of blood and sweat. Bring it on. SHARE READ MORE Can't Buy Me Love I started early. Another aimless wandering of a clueless soul. There was the sandwich bar that had the day's special. Back at the crowd, I read over a cup of green tea with a twist of lemon - "'I love walking in London,' said Mrs. Dalloway. 'Really it's better than walking in the country.'" The store next door had a sale. The street was up on sale and I was rich today. Today, I could indulge. The Chrysanthemums at the florist enthralled me like Vincent was by Sun flowers. Bought a bunch - green and white. Bought a green sweatshirt for the winter that passed by and a bunch of glitzy Tees for the years when I couldn't afford them. Bought a pair of beach sandals and a sipper. I could smell the aroma of saffron in the air. It was time to indulge - again. Stopped at the bus stop and watched the traffic go by. Flagged a cab and headed home. I unlocked the door and nudged it wide open. There was something still missing. SHARE READ MORE Footsie You lie still on the cold granite slab. I fall to my knees and lean over you. I open your fist, and leave my crimson gift in your palm. It wilts in your folding fingers. I try to wake you up. Gently, I nudge you. Turn your face to me, make you look at me. Your eyes look beyond me. I kiss your unfeeling lips. I catch a whiff of your smell. I breathe into your ear. Struggle to break this silence. I feel the smoothness of your skin. Trace my fingers down your neck to your breast. I put my ear to your chest, and freeze. Your heart beats, for someone else. SHARE SHARE READ MORE Asymmetric Agony How do I get over you? You missed me, I miss you. I know I love you more, I know I love you less. Nature has a cruel sense of humor.

I want to hold you closer, yet I know I only delay the inevitable. So, I let go. You let go. And then there will be a void within me. I’ll think about you - constantly… like a song that plays over and over and refuses to stop. An intense physical pain that only you can heal. An addiction that will enervate me. I know I have the strength to move on. I will. Days, weeks, and months will pass by. The agony will one day disappear, the memories will fade, and then, I’ll get over you.

We were looking for someone else. I know I'll find another. You'll find another. I'll never find you. You'll never find me. If we do, it will be us. Again.

And I cannot keep my eyes off of them!! They are the brightest spot in this house right now and I just smile inside every time I look at them. And that's why I'm going to call them Color Therapy Pillows. Because this spark of happiness is real, people. This is just the pillow to get you through the rest of winter. I got the striped fabric from an indigenous community in Ecuador. The women and girls wear a piece of this striped fabric wrapped around their waist, for a skirt. And they literally weave this fabric by hand with a wooden loom. Could these pillows get any cooler? Also, the fabric is thick and smooth to touch. The pillows were sewn by a professional workroom in Cuenca. The zipper is hidden and the backside is white upholstery fabric. The pillows look super modern and will add THE BEST pop of color to any room. I love this fabric so much I had planned to use it in my own house before I thought of doing these pop-ups. But, ANYTHING FOR REFUGEES RIGHT NOW!!! I'd sell you my vintage yellow chairs if I could. (2) PILLOW COVERS AVAILABLE Price: $95 each Size: 17 1/2" x 17 1/2 Delivery: $12. Included: Pillow cover only. Inner cushion not included. Recommended cushion size: 20"x20" (it's great if the pillow is slightly larger than the actual pillow cover.) Inner Cushions Available at IKEA. Shipping: I will be sending these late January from the U.S., instead of sending from Ecuador. Thanks for your patience! To Claim It: Write SOLD in the comments.

He is a leader in his indigenous Quechua community. And he's dedicated much of his time and life to continuing traditions among the Quechua people. Rodrigo speaks English perfectly, so he's been able to work as a local guide for many English speaking people. We've been fortunate to be able to see Rodrigo a few times a year, as he works as our guide at Body+Soul Camp. For the last retreat, he picked Danny and I up at the airport, which is always a treat as we get to chat with him for the next 1.5 hours until we make it to the lodge and hear about all his latest endeavors and local happenings. Though this time, he asked us if we wanted to go have "fritada" with his family. It turns out we didn't exactly know what it meant to have "fritada." But we were SO touched by this unbelievably kind invitation! We drove many miles up higher in the mountains to the home where Rodrigo grew up. His mother still lives there. We walked into the kitchen and saw this...a full blown fire next to the kitchen sink. And corn drying overhead. The women were working away and chopped meat and cooked food for hours in HUGE caldrons on the fire. All the women were in skirts. The dogs watched every move. (Danny played wooden tops with the kids, a super popular game here.) Abuelita stirred the pot with a stick. (Check out the strength of her arms.) And she chopped meat with a machete. Even the dog was standing back. (I was holding the camera just behind her, dodging flying bits.) Everyone there was sooo enjoying eating the freshly cooked rolls of pig skin. These doggies sure wanted some, too... This guy could wrap the top with string in seconds. Cousins. Technology. Mote is one of the favorite dishes among Ecuadorians. This mote was likely retrieved from the dried corn hanging above. After all of the family and guests were served in the living room, the Abuelitas finally sat down in the kitchen to eat their meal. I stayed with them as it was so cozy next to the fire. I took a picture of one of the main cooks and then she said, wait, wait... Apron off. Indigenous clothing and gorgeous hair piece now featured. I noticed some of the doggies had some blood on them. And then I looked up... Dinner. We're deeply grateful to Rodrigo and his family for sharing this tradition with us. They prepare a big fried pork meal like this for special occasions. And it was, indeed, so special for us. It was actually one of the most authentic Ecuadorian experiences we've had to date. Mara P.S. If you ever need a guide in Ecuador, absolutely email Rodrigo Flores. He can be your driver and guide in the Otavalo / Cotacachi / Peguche / Intag area.

We once visited a women's co-op of weavers in a very small town in Ecuador called Sig Sig. And I was just elated when the guide told us that 100% of the workers are women. We got to tour their workshop and see where they dry palm leaves and create extremely well-made Panama hats and bags with their hands. We thought it would be amazing to get some bags woven for you all (right?). So we contacted the women by phone and sent them a drawing of a bag... They made a sample bag for us in less than a week and even said they'd bring it into the city of Cuenca. They requested that we meet them on the steps of the bank. And this is what we saw when we arrived.... It turns out the woman weaving the hat is the President of the company and the other woman is the Secretary, who took notes while we all spoke. They were SO kind and cheerful. We asked if they could help with shipping to the U.S. and they said yes, in fact earlier that day they had shipped 800 hats to the U.S. Ok, these women are utter rockstars in my book. Here is The Circle Bag we had them make for us.... and I must say, I just adore it. In two days while walking around Cuenca, I've had THREE women stop to say they love the bag. That hasn't ever happened here. I think the women here know their weaving, and they know this round shape is new to the scene. :) The Circle Bag - 3 Available Update: This style already sold-out. Though leave a comment if you want to be put on a list for the future... Today we were completely spoiled and got to visit the spa with our best friends here in Cuenca (they're a couple from Utah that moved here with their two daughters - and we just can't get enough of our epic conversations.) It was a dream to take my new bag to the spa and it worked out perfectly as a carry-all. This is what I put in it today: -Bathing Suit -Water Bottles (we add lime to our water which is the most refreshing thing to drink in the sun or after the sauna.) -Face Oil w/ plant-based sun protection properties -Essential Oils for aromatherapy in the Sauna Laying in the Sun: Bergamot, Arborvitae, Passion (contact me if you want to get wholesale prices.) -Sunglasses -Cell Phone -Laptop - for doing some work, reading, or writing (though, um...it was so nice to talk with our friends that I never got to the computer.) This Circle Tote is extremely sturdy and not flimsy/fragile at all like many straw/raffia/grass type bags. The palm leaves this is woven with are crazy strong. It seems I could carry three bricks around in it and the thing would still hold up. These weavers, the savvy business ladies that they are, also brought a few other bags to see if they could entice me. And well, they did. And so we actually have THREE bags to choose from today. Truth be told, there was a fourth bag, but it got sold to a passerby before I could take a photo of it. But here are these two beauties... The Fringe Top Bag - 3 Available 2 Available The Black White Bag - 3 Available Update: This style already sold-out. Though leave a comment if you want to be put on a list for the future... These are all extremely well made. I know you'll just LOVE them. Price for each bag: $79 Shipping: $15 Delivery: The bags will take 1-2 weeks to make, depending on how many people want one. But shipping will take a little longer. Instead of sending them individually from Ecuador, I may send several of them together to the States. So thanks for your patience. We'll get you the bag as soon as we can. I should have an update on the estimated shipping in the next few days, so you can inquire about that if needed.

If these sell-out for the #HolidayServiceProject, still leave your name below and I'll be working away to get you a bag!

The Mara Bag - (3) Available Price: $150 We had this bag made by a local leather craftsman here in Cuenca, who makes everything by hand in his workshop. We were very pleased with his work! The leather is thick and really, this bag should last for years and years, if not a lifetime. The bag can actually hold a lot! I am always shocked at how much I can fit in there comfortably. Also, the leather is natural and will likely darken and age over time. This is an incomparable, timeless statement piece. Shipping: $15. Delivery should be approximately within 2-4 weeks. (Earlier orders will ship sooner. Also, the 2-4 weeks is an estimate. Due to the international shipping, I won't be able to guarantee the time of arrival unless you wanted to pay for expedited shipping, though the cost would be very high.)

(CNN)The next possible US secretary of defense went by the military call sign "Chaos." Revered by his troops as a "warrior monk" with a knack for hard-edged quips, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis led troops in Afghanistan in 2001, won laurels for leadership in one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq War and most recently headed US Central Command, perhaps the military's most complicated and challenging post. Now, Mattis faces an entirely different kind of fight. As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to formally nominate the former four-star to head the Pentagon, some Democrats are signaling his confirmation might not be entirely easy. Some observers question whether Mattis' battlefield experience prepares him for the very different task of running an enormous bureaucracy, while senior lawmakers worry about what the 66-year-old's nomination means for maintaining civilian control of the military. Republicans issued glowing testimonials to Mattis and his career. California Rep. Devin Nunes, who heads the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said he could think of "no better candidate to lead America's military in our long fight against jihadism and countering other pressing threats." Noting that Mattis hasn't been out of uniform long enough to lead the Pentagon without a congressional waiver, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said that while he "would make an excellent Secretary of Defense, we must also bear in mind the precedent we would be setting and the impact it would have on the principle of civilian leadership of our nation's military." Donald Trump speaks with Taiwan's President Kirsten Gillibrand, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee subcommittee on personnel, was more definitive. "Civilian control of our military is a fundamental principle of American democracy," Gillibrand said in a statement Thursday, "and I will not vote for an exception to this rule." Just one senator can demand that the waiver for Mattis meet a 60-vote threshold, meaning he would need to get the support of all Republicans and eight Democrats to move toward confirmation next year. If he's approved, Mattis would be the highest-ranking former officer to serve as defense secretary. The Washington State native and history major led troops through the conflicts in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq. From 2010 to 2013, he led Central Command, which oversees the Middle East and Southeast Asia, until the Obama administration let him go over disagreements on Iran. The White House was pushing for a nuclear deal with Tehran in 2013, the same year Mattis was telling the Aspen Security Forum that his top concern as Centcom commander was "Iran, Iran, Iran." Obama to sign Iran sanctions bill Mattis has since been critical of the deal and of the Obama administration's refusal to engage more aggressively in the Middle East, saying it has fueled extremism in the region. In 2015, he told a congressional panel that the US needed to come out of its "reactive crouch" in the Middle East and defend its values. Indeed, Mattis has not been known to mince words. He's affectionately known as "Mad Dog" by troops who trade his quips like prized baseball cards. On the news of his nomination, many of those sayings instantly became memes on Twitter. Among them: "a good soldier follows orders, but a true warrior wears his enemy's skin like a poncho," and "be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet." Human Rights Watch called on Congress to fully examine his views on a number of issues. "Media accounts suggest that Gen. Mattis doesn't agree with President-elect Trump's more outrageous campaign proposals, such as bringing back waterboarding, targeting terrorist suspects' family members, or tampering with anti-torture laws," said Washington director Sarah Margon. She urged that during the confirmation process "senators make sure Mattis unreservedly repudiates these proposals, acknowledges that they are illegal, and confirms that they are not up for future consideration." Mattis is one of a slew of generals Trump has been considering for other Cabinet-level jobs, including Gen. David Petraeus for the State Department, Gen. John Kelly to head Homeland Security and Adm. Mike Rogers as the director of national intelligence. Erin Simpson, a national security consultant and senior editor at WarontheRocks.com, said the incoming administration may be trying to capitalize on public respect for the military by considering so many generals. But "where there are really weak civilian institutions and an inexperienced president, it just doesn't sit right by me," said Simpson. The silver lining, she adds, is that many military and security professionals wary of Trump may be convinced to serve under Mattis. "It provides some top-cover for other qualified folks to come in who might not have otherwise," Simpson said. "There are a lot of jobs to fill at the Pentagon, this could bring in some talent and that's a net gain." China's foreign ministry says it has lodged a complaint with the US after President-elect Donald Trump spoke to Taiwan's leader in a phone call. China sees Taiwan as a breakaway province. US policy set in 1979 cut formal relations with Taiwan. Mr Trump's transition team said he and Tsai Ing-wen noted "close economic, political, and security ties". The US is Taiwan's most important ally and provides Taiwan with sufficient weaponry to defend itself. China said it had lodged a "solemn representation" with Washington. According to the state news agency Xinhua, China urged the US "to cautiously, properly handle Taiwan issue to avoid unnecessary disturbance to Sino-US relations". Foreign Minister Wang Yi dismissed the call as a "petty trick" by Taiwan, Chinese state media said. What happened? Mr Trump tweeted on Friday that Ms Tsai had called him to congratulate him on winning the US election. His team said that the US president-elect had also congratulated Ms Tsai on becoming the president of Taiwan last January. No US president or president-elect has spoken directly to a Taiwanese leader for decades. Following media reports pointing out the risks of angering China, Mr Trump tweeted: "Interesting how the US sells Taiwan billions of dollars of military equipment but I should not accept a congratulatory call." The White House has said Mr Trump's conversation does not signal any change in US policy. US media reported that the White House learned of the call only after it had happened. Mr Trump's spokeswoman said he was "well aware" of US policy towards Taiwan. Read more: What's behind the China-Taiwan divide? What is the problem? This file photo taken on November 10, 2016 shows a man buying a newspaper featuring a photo of US President-elect Donald TrumpImage copyrightAFP/GETTY IMAGES Image caption China is closely watching Mr Trump's transition to president The split between China and Taiwan goes back to 1949, when the Republic of China (ROC) Kuomintang (KMT) government fled the mainland to Taiwan after being defeated by the communists under Mao Zedong. The KMT held China's seat on the UN Security Council and was, for a while, recognised by many Western nations as the only Chinese government. But in 1971, the UN switched diplomatic recognition to Beijing. Only a handful of countries now recognise Taiwan's government. Washington cut formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan in 1979, expressing its support for Beijing's "one country, two systems" concept, which states that Taiwan is part of China. But despite the cut, the US remains, by far, Taiwan's most important friend, and its only ally. The Taiwan Relations Act promises to supply Taiwan with defensive weapons. It says that any attack by China on Taiwan would be considered of "grave concern" to the US. China has hundreds of missiles pointing towards Taiwan, and has threatened to use force if it formally declares independence. President Tsai, Taiwan's first female leader, led the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) to a landslide victory in the January 2016 election. The DPP has traditionally leaned towards independence from China. President Tsai's administration does not accept the "One China" policy.

Since his election last month, they have struggled to understand who is advising Donald Trump on Asia and what his China policy will look like. This move will turn concern into alarm and anger. Beijing sees Taiwan as a province. Denying it any of the trappings of an independent state is one of the key priorities of Chinese foreign policy. Read more from Carrie: The Trump phone call that will stun Beijing Mild reaction - Cindy Sui, BBC, Taipei China's reaction is relatively mild. It doesn't want to get off on the wrong foot with Mr Trump. And it sees Mr Trump as an inexperienced politician, so for now it's willing to forgive him and not play this up. It may also be somewhat reassured by statements from the US that its policy on China and Taiwan has not changed. But behind the scenes it's safe to say China is working hard to "educate" the Trump team on not repeating such diplomatic faux pas. This move by Taiwan's President Tsai will further infuriate Beijing and make it distrust her even more and see her as favouring Taiwan's formal independence from China. World-changing ideas summit With our powers of reasoning, rich memories and the ability to imagine what the future might hold, human intelligence is unequalled in the animal kingdom. Our closest relatives, chimpanzees, are adept problem solvers, making their own tools to reach food, for example. They use sophisticated gestures and facial expressions to communicate. Yet, they fall a long way short of our own ability to think and plan for the future. Thomas Suddendorf, a psychologist at the University of Queensland, describes this as the gap – the cognitive gulf that separates us from animals. But it was not always so wide, he says in the video above. Our species once shared the planet with other hominins with intelligence that may have rivaled our own. Their extinction was at least partly due to the actions of our own ancestors, according to many anthropologists. We need to be careful not to make the same mistakes again and widen the gap between the species even further in our pursuit of progress, warns Suddendorf, who spoke to BBC Future at the World-Changing Ideas Summit in Sydney on 15 November.

Cracked fields stretch away towards the Moroccan desert to the south. Yet the barren landscape is no longer quite as desolate as it once was. This year it became home to one of the world’s biggest solar power plants. Welcome to Future Now Your essential guide to a world in flux Change happens quickly these days and it can be hard to keep up. That’s why BBC Future has launched a new section called Future Now to bring you in-depth stories about the people, events and trends that are shaping our world.

We hope you will join us as we explore the changes that matter. Hundreds of curved mirrors, each as big as a bus, are ranked in rows covering 1,400,000 sq m (15m sq ft) of desert, an area the size of 200 football fields. The massive complex sits on a sun-blasted site at the foot of the High Atlas mountains, 10km (6 miles) from Ouarzazate – a city nicknamed the door to the desert. With around 330 days of sunshine a year, it’s an ideal location. As well as meeting domestic needs, Morocco hopes one day to export solar energy to Europe. This is a plant that could help define Africa's – and the world’s – energy future.

An occasional off day is not a concern, however. After many years of false starts, solar power is coming of age as countries in the sun finally embrace their most abundant source of clean energy. The Moroccan site is one of several across Africa and similar plants are being built in the Middle East – in Jordan, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. The falling cost of solar power has made it a viable alternative to oil even in the most oil-rich parts of the world. As well as meeting domestic needs, Morocco hopes one day to export solar energy to Europe. Noor 1, the first phase of the Moroccan plant, has already surpassed expectations in terms of the amount of energy it has produced. It is an encouraging result in line with Morocco’s goal to reduce its fossil fuel bill by focusing on renewables while still meeting growing energy needs that are increasing by about 7% per year. Morocco’s stable government and economy has helped it secure funding: the European Union contributed 60% of the cost for the Ouarzazate project, for example. (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) With around 330 days of sunshine a year, the region around Ouarzazate - a city nicknamed the door to the desert - is an ideal location (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) The country plans to generate 14% of its energy from solar by 2020 and by adding other renewable sources like wind and water into the mix, it is aiming to produce 52% of its own energy by 2030. This puts Morocco more or less in line with countries like the UK, which wants to generate 30% of its electricity from renewables by the end of the decade, and the US, where President Obama set a target of 20% by 2030. (Trump has threatened to dump renewables, but his actions may not have a huge impact. Many policies are controlled by individual states and big companies have already started to switch to cleaner and cheaper alternatives.) Due to the lack sun on the day I visit, the hundreds of mirrors stand still and silent. The team keeps a close eye on weather forecasts to predict output for the following day, allowing other sources of energy to take over when it is overcast. The reflectors can be heard as they move together to follow the sun like a giant field of sunflowers But normally the reflectors can be heard as they move together to follow the Sun like a giant field of sunflowers. The mirrors focus the Sun’s energy onto a synthetic oil that flows through a network of pipes. Reaching temperatures up to 350C (662F), the hot oil is used to produce high-pressure water vapour that drives a turbine-powered generator. “It’s the same classic process used with fossil fuels, except that we are using the Sun’s heat as the source,” says Bayed. The plant keeps generating energy after sunset, when electricity demands peak. Some of the day’s energy is stored in reservoirs of superhot molten salts made of sodium and potassium nitrates, which keeps production going for up to three hours. In the next phase of the plant, production will continue for up to eight hours after sunset. (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) Once fully operational, the solar plant will only require about 50 to 100 employees (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) As well as boosting Morocco’s power production, the Ouarzazate project is helping the local economy. Around 2,000 workers were hired during the initial two years of construction, many of them Moroccan. Roads built to provide access to the plant have also connected nearby villages, helping children get to school. Water brought in for the site has been piped beyond the complex, hooking up 33 villages to the water grid. Water brought in for the site has been piped beyond the complex, hooking up 33 villages to the water grid Masen has also helped farmers in the area by teaching them sustainable practices. Heading towards the mountains, I visit the Berber village of Asseghmou, 30 miles (48 kilometres) north of Ouarzazate, where a small farm has now changed the way it raises ewes. Most farmers here rely on their intuition alone but they are being introduced to more reliable techniques -such as simply separating animals in their pens – which are improving yields. Masen also provided 25 farms with sheep for breeding purposes. “I now have better food security,” says Chaoui, who runs a local farm. And his almond tree is thriving thanks to cultivation tips. Even so, some locals have concerns. Abdellatif, who lives in the city of Zagora about 75 miles (120 kilometres) further south, where there are high rates of unemployment, thinks that the plant should focus on creating permanent jobs. He has friends who were hired to work there but they were only on contract for a few months. Once fully operational, the station will only require about 50 to 100 employees so the job boom may end. “The components of the plant are manufactured abroad but it would be better to produce them locally to generate ongoing work for residents,” he says. (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) The solar plant draws a massive amount of water from the local El Mansour Eddahbi dam. Water scarcity has been a problem in the semi-desert region (Credit: Sandrine Ceurstemont) A bigger issue is that the solar plant draws a massive amount of water for cleaning and cooling from the local El Mansour Eddahbi dam. In recent years, water scarcity has been a problem in the semi-desert region and there are water cuts. Agricultural land further south in the Draa valley depends on water from the dam, which is occasionally released into the otherwise-dry river. But Mustapha Sellam, the site manager, claims that the water used by the complex amounts to 0.5% of the dam’s supply, which is negligible compared to its capacity. Still, the plant’s consumption is enough to make a difference to struggling farmers. So the plant is making improvements to reduce the amount of water it uses. Instead of relying on water to clean the mirrors, pressurised air is used. And whereas Noor 1 uses water to cool the steam produced by the generators, so that it can be turned back into water and reused to produce more electricity, a dry cooling system that uses air will be installed. The success of plants in places like Morocco and South Africa will encourage other African countries to turn to solar power These new sections of the plant are currently being built. Noor 2 will be similar to the first phase, but Noor 3 will experiment with a different design. Instead of ranks of mirrors it will capture and store the Sun’s energy with a single large tower, which is thought to be more efficient. Seven thousand flat mirrors surrounding the tower will all track and reflect the sun’s rays towards a receiver at the top, requiring much less space than existing arrangement of mirrors. Molten salts filling the interior of the tower will capture and store heat directly, doing away with the need for hot oil. Similar systems are already used in South Africa, Spain and a few sites in the US, such as California’s Mojave desert and Nevada. But at 86ft (26m) tall, Ouarzazate’s recently erected structure is the highest of its kind in the world. (Credit: Getty Images) Africa’s sunshine could eventually make the continent a supplier of energy to the rest of the world (Credit: Getty Images) Other plants in Morocco are already underway. Next year construction will begin at two sites in the south-west, near Laayoune and Boujdour, with plants near Tata and Midelt to follow. The success of these plants in Morocco – and those in South Africa - may encourage other African countries to turn to solar power. South Africa is already one of the world’s top 10 producers of solar power and Rwanda is home to east Africa’s first solar plant, which opened in 2014. Large plants are being planned for Ghana and Uganda. Africa’s sunshine could eventually make the continent a supplier of energy to the rest of the world. Sellam has high hopes for Noor. “Our main goal is to become energy-independent but if one day we are producing a surplus we could supply other countries too,” he says. Imagine recharging your electric car in Berlin with electricity produced in Morocco. With the clouds set to lift in Ouarzazate, Africa is busy planning for a sunny day. -- Keep up to date with Future Now stories by liking BBC Future on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Instagram If you liked this story, sign up for the weekly bbc.com features newsletter, called “If You Only Read 6 Things This Week”.

Curled like a fern frond, hiding away from the light and the fear. I uncurl in the warmth of your embrace and sleep in the stillness of a dreamless night. I mesmerize you with the rhythm of my breaths and the murmur of my beating heart. Morning brought the lambent light, blinding me and breaking the trance. I feel your absence next to me, like phantom wings of a fallen angel. I curl again, kiss my knees. Brood upon a distant memory where darkness lulled me in waters deep. The lungs remember how to breathe and the heart remembers how to forget. SHARE READ MORE San Francisco This will be our last moment. A moment that will encase all the other moments. Dwarfed by the skyscrapers, my insignificance sinking in, I feel your disdain at another departing lover. I know your streets, better than the lines of fate on my palms. Your secrets hidden in nooks are now mine to keep. Your many sounds, dulcet and loud. I am your lover, yet a stranger to your people. I look up at the sky searching for the stars that would someday guide me back to you. Stars that I could not see in clear skies, now cloaked in fog. I press the button and hear the metal scrape as the elevator rises behind the glass doors. Its open doors urging me to enter the nether world. I drag my bags in, things that I couldn’t let go while letting go of things that I did not want to let go. The doors close behind me. A promise of love, life, or death that will remain unfulfilled until the day I return, to never leave again. Goodbye San Francisco. SHARE READ MORE The Castro We walk in sync. You lead, and I wander across nameless streets. You talk, I listen and let you into my soul. You kiss, and I cave in, let you inside me. We talk, and we listen as you drift away from me. You sleep, and I still hear you breathe. Whisper truth in your dreams, that will foul like your breath in awakening. I hear your heart beat, tell tales of lovers. Your hand lies on my breast, skin that no longer feels like another. I taste like you, smell like you. Just as you do. Tonight we sleep as lovers, for tomorrow at the crossroads, you will leave me a stranger. Nameless, faceless, soulless. Like the one thousand lovers before me.

Maggots crawl over you, writhing in slime. Your swollen fingers curled above the dirt, reaching out. Waiting for me to grasp them. To pull you out or to drag me in.

Just like before. SHARE READ MORE What's In Your Head? It's spring. Three seasons have passed since we met and the chill of our winter no longer gives me the goose bumps. I find your name in my phone book and hit delete. I pick up your red shirt, all wrinkled up, and add it to the ones that would shelter the homeless. Collect the shriveled flowers from the blue vase and bury them in the compost heap. I look for the book with the note you left. Would leave it at the park bench. Maybe, the one in the red shirt would find it. Pictures are easier to get rid of. I have one final look before I hit the keys. Must remember to delete the backups. A search in my inbox finds your words. They are deleted forever. Pick up your gray toothbrush and trash it. Finally, you're out of my life. But I still can’t get you out of my mind. SHARE READ MORE The Search. I went down to the street that began it all, the aptly named, Road Number One. Got off at the sandwich bar and headed to the video store next to it. Staring at the titles in languages I couldn’t speak, I awaited the visitor who would never arrive to share a subtle kiss that no one could see. The cashier smiled at me reading my thoughts as I read hers. I headed to the coffee shop where I sat alone facing the exit. I hate coffee or maybe the milk in it. I wander about feigning a lack of destination, seeking you in the places that we were found. Hoping to see you again so we can walk through each other. Yes. You are gone.

My heart kept pounding. I heard your footsteps fade away. I lost you somewhere on the way. I smiled, still reeling at the sharp taste of blood and sweat. Bring it on. SHARE READ MORE Can't Buy Me Love I started early. Another aimless wandering of a clueless soul. There was the sandwich bar that had the day's special. Back at the crowd, I read over a cup of green tea with a twist of lemon - "'I love walking in London,' said Mrs. Dalloway. 'Really it's better than walking in the country.'" The store next door had a sale. The street was up on sale and I was rich today. Today, I could indulge. The Chrysanthemums at the florist enthralled me like Vincent was by Sun flowers. Bought a bunch - green and white. Bought a green sweatshirt for the winter that passed by and a bunch of glitzy Tees for the years when I couldn't afford them. Bought a pair of beach sandals and a sipper. I could smell the aroma of saffron in the air. It was time to indulge - again. Stopped at the bus stop and watched the traffic go by. Flagged a cab and headed home. I unlocked the door and nudged it wide open. There was something still missing. SHARE READ MORE Footsie You lie still on the cold granite slab. I fall to my knees and lean over you. I open your fist, and leave my crimson gift in your palm. It wilts in your folding fingers. I try to wake you up. Gently, I nudge you. Turn your face to me, make you look at me. Your eyes look beyond me. I kiss your unfeeling lips. I catch a whiff of your smell. I breathe into your ear. Struggle to break this silence. I feel the smoothness of your skin. Trace my fingers down your neck to your breast. I put my ear to your chest, and freeze. Your heart beats, for someone else. SHARE SHARE READ MORE Asymmetric Agony How do I get over you? You missed me, I miss you. I know I love you more, I know I love you less. Nature has a cruel sense of humor. Symmetry is in form, not in feelings. I know I need to let go. But I want to linger, savor this moment. Feel the last rays of the sun go down, before it’s all dark. I want to hold you closer, yet I know I only delay the inevitable. So, I let go. You let go. And then there will be a void within me. I’ll think about you - constantly… like a song that plays over and over and refuses to stop. An intense physical pain that only you can heal. An addiction that will enervate me. I know I have the strength to move on. I will. Days, weeks, and months will pass by. The agony will one day disappear, the memories will fade, and then, I’ll get over you. SHARE READ MORE Find Your Kind It's over. I know you grieve for us. We chose to be together. We chose to be apart. Which was meant to be? Was it all a lie? Did I not feel your warmth? Did I not keep you waiting? Will I remember the moments that defined us, the ones that crush me within or the ones that spite me? Will I find you in my solitude? Will you see me in another? We were looking for someone else. I know I'll find another. You'll find another. I'll never find you. You'll never find me. If we do, it will be us. Again.

And I cannot keep my eyes off of them!! They are the brightest spot in this house right now and I just smile inside every time I look at them. And that's why I'm going to call them Color Therapy Pillows. Because this spark of happiness is real, people. This is just the pillow to get you through the rest of winter. I got the striped fabric from an indigenous community in Ecuador. The women and girls wear a piece of this striped fabric wrapped around their waist, for a skirt. And they literally weave this fabric by hand with a wooden loom. Could these pillows get any cooler? Also, the fabric is thick and smooth to touch. The pillows were sewn by a professional workroom in Cuenca. The zipper is hidden and the backside is white upholstery fabric. The pillows look super modern and will add THE BEST pop of color to any room. I love this fabric so much I had planned to use it in my own house before I thought of doing these pop-ups. But, ANYTHING FOR REFUGEES RIGHT NOW!!! I'd sell you my vintage yellow chairs if I could. (2) PILLOW COVERS AVAILABLE Price: $95 each Size: 17 1/2" x 17 1/2 Delivery: $12. Included: Pillow cover only. Inner cushion not included. Recommended cushion size: 20"x20" (it's great if the pillow is slightly larger than the actual pillow cover.) Inner Cushions Available at IKEA. Shipping: I will be sending these late January from the U.S., instead of sending from Ecuador. Thanks for your patience! To Claim It: Write SOLD in the comments.

He is a leader in his indigenous Quechua community. And he's dedicated much of his time and life to continuing traditions among the Quechua people. Rodrigo speaks English perfectly, so he's been able to work as a local guide for many English speaking people. We've been fortunate to be able to see Rodrigo a few times a year, as he works as our guide at Body+Soul Camp. For the last retreat, he picked Danny and I up at the airport, which is always a treat as we get to chat with him for the next 1.5 hours until we make it to the lodge and hear about all his latest endeavors and local happenings. Though this time, he asked us if we wanted to go have "fritada" with his family. It turns out we didn't exactly know what it meant to have "fritada." But we were SO touched by this unbelievably kind invitation! We drove many miles up higher in the mountains to the home where Rodrigo grew up. His mother still lives there. We walked into the kitchen and saw this...a full blown fire next to the kitchen sink. And corn drying overhead. The women were working away and chopped meat and cooked food for hours in HUGE caldrons on the fire. All the women were in skirts. The dogs watched every move. (Danny played wooden tops with the kids, a super popular game here.) Abuelita stirred the pot with a stick. (Check out the strength of her arms.) And she chopped meat with a machete. Even the dog was standing back. (I was holding the camera just behind her, dodging flying bits.) Everyone there was sooo enjoying eating the freshly cooked rolls of pig skin. These doggies sure wanted some, too... This guy could wrap the top with string in seconds. Cousins. Technology. Mote is one of the favorite dishes among Ecuadorians. This mote was likely retrieved from the dried corn hanging above. After all of the family and guests were served in the living room, the Abuelitas finally sat down in the kitchen to eat their meal. I stayed with them as it was so cozy next to the fire. I took a picture of one of the main cooks and then she said, wait, wait... Apron off. Indigenous clothing and gorgeous hair piece now featured. I noticed some of the doggies had some blood on them. And then I looked up... Dinner. We're deeply grateful to Rodrigo and his family for sharing this tradition with us. They prepare a big fried pork meal like this for special occasions. And it was, indeed, so special for us. It was actually one of the most authentic Ecuadorian experiences we've had to date. Mara P.S. If you ever need a guide in Ecuador, absolutely email Rodrigo Flores. He can be your driver and guide in the Otavalo / Cotacachi / Peguche / Intag area.

We once visited a women's co-op of weavers in a very small town in Ecuador called Sig Sig. And I was just elated when the guide told us that 100% of the workers are women. We got to tour their workshop and see where they dry palm leaves and create extremely well-made Panama hats and bags with their hands. We thought it would be amazing to get some bags woven for you all (right?). So we contacted the women by phone and sent them a drawing of a bag... They made a sample bag for us in less than a week and even said they'd bring it into the city of Cuenca. They requested that we meet them on the steps of the bank. And this is what we saw when we arrived.... It turns out the woman weaving the hat is the President of the company and the other woman is the Secretary, who took notes while we all spoke. They were SO kind and cheerful. We asked if they could help with shipping to the U.S. and they said yes, in fact earlier that day they had shipped 800 hats to the U.S. Ok, these women are utter rockstars in my book. Here is The Circle Bag we had them make for us.... and I must say, I just adore it. In two days while walking around Cuenca, I've had THREE women stop to say they love the bag. That hasn't ever happened here. I think the women here know their weaving, and they know this round shape is new to the scene. :) The Circle Bag - 3 Available Update: This style already sold-out. Though leave a comment if you want to be put on a list for the future... Today we were completely spoiled and got to visit the spa with our best friends here in Cuenca (they're a couple from Utah that moved here with their two daughters - and we just can't get enough of our epic conversations.) It was a dream to take my new bag to the spa and it worked out perfectly as a carry-all. This is what I put in it today: -Bathing Suit -Water Bottles (we add lime to our water which is the most refreshing thing to drink in the sun or after the sauna.) -Face Oil w/ plant-based sun protection properties -Essential Oils for aromatherapy in the Sauna Laying in the Sun: Bergamot, Arborvitae, Passion (contact me if you want to get wholesale prices.) -Sunglasses -Cell Phone -Laptop - for doing some work, reading, or writing (though, um...it was so nice to talk with our friends that I never got to the computer.) This Circle Tote is extremely sturdy and not flimsy/fragile at all like many straw/raffia/grass type bags. The palm leaves this is woven with are crazy strong. It seems I could carry three bricks around in it and the thing would still hold up. These weavers, the savvy business ladies that they are, also brought a few other bags to see if they could entice me. And well, they did. And so we actually have THREE bags to choose from today. Truth be told, there was a fourth bag, but it got sold to a passerby before I could take a photo of it. But here are these two beauties... The Fringe Top Bag - 3 Available 2 Available The Black White Bag - 3 Available Update: This style already sold-out. Though leave a comment if you want to be put on a list for the future... These are all extremely well made. I know you'll just LOVE them. Price for each bag: $79 Shipping: $15 Delivery: The bags will take 1-2 weeks to make, depending on how many people want one. But shipping will take a little longer. Instead of sending them individually from Ecuador, I may send several of them together to the States. So thanks for your patience. We'll get you the bag as soon as we can. I should have an update on the estimated shipping in the next few days, so you can inquire about that if needed.

The Mara Bag - (3) Available Price: $150 We had this bag made by a local leather craftsman here in Cuenca, who makes everything by hand in his workshop. We were very pleased with his work! The leather is thick and really, this bag should last for years and years, if not a lifetime. The bag can actually hold a lot! I am always shocked at how much I can fit in there comfortably. Also, the leather is natural and will likely darken and age over time. This is an incomparable, timeless statement piece. Shipping: $15. Delivery should be approximately within 2-4 weeks. (Earlier orders will ship sooner. Also, the 2-4 weeks is an estimate. Due to the international shipping, I won't be able to guarantee the time of arrival unless you wanted to pay for expedited shipping, though the cost would be very high.)
