Toni is 11. She is just one of the kids spending a lot of time at the town’s recreation centre. She is powerful, hardworking, ambitious, systematic; and the only girl among the boys of the boxing gym. Besides her passion for boxing, she also wants to be a part of the Lionesses, a dance group rehearsing downstairs. Toni’s change starts when she splits her time between dancing and boxing and starts to feel like being have to choose one. By coincidence, this change occurs simultaneously with the fits experienced by the Lionesses, one by one. Touched by a glimpse of fantasy and empowered with young Royalty Hightower’s performance, the growing pains turn into a psychological explosion in this thrilling film The Fits, recalling Black Swan.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
