* The Tuareg people (/ˈtwɑːrɛɡ/; also spelt Twareg or Touareg; endonym: Kel Tamasheq, Kel Tagelmust) are a large Berber ethnic confederation. They principally inhabit the Sahara in a vast area stretching from far southwestern Libya to southern Algeria, Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. Traditionally nomadic pastoralists, small groups of Tuareg are also found in northern Nigeria.
* For example, unlike many of their settled neighbors, Berber women rarely wear veils and in some of their communities, women even choose their own husbands.
Berber society is centered around the concept of the tribe, which is usually composed of extended family clans. Each tribe has its own chief who often claims to be a descendant of the Prophet Mohammad. The chief is in charge of dispensing justice and resolving disputes as well as making important decisions for the tribe.
* Similar to other nomadic cultures, Berber clans live in portable tents that are set up when they find a good area to graze their animals. One particularly unique part of Berber culture is guest rights. Once someone is given food and water by a Berber, they become their guest. The host then takes responsibility for the guest’s safety.
Todorova about the Balkans and exoticism (1997)
A nomad is a person with no settled home, moving from place to place as a way of obtaining food, finding pasture for livestock, or otherwise making a living. The word "nomad" comes ultimately from the classical Greek word νομάς (nomás, "roaming, wandering, especially to find pasture"), from Ancient Greek νομός (nomós, "pasture"). Most nomadic groups follow a fixed annual or seasonal pattern of movements and settlements. Nomadic peoples traditionally travel by animal or canoe or on foot. Today, some nomads travel by motor vehicle. Most[quantify] nomads live in tents or other portable shelters.
The nomadic way of life has become increasingly rare. Many countries have converted pastures into cropland and forced nomadic peoples into permanent settlements.
Although (or because) "[t]he sedentary man envies the nomadic existence, the heck for green pastures [...]" sedentarist prejudice against nomads, "shiftless" "gypsies", "rootless cosmopolitans", "primitive" hunter-gatherers, refugees and urban homeless street-people persists
One of the results of the break-up of the Soviet Union and the subsequent political independence and economic collapse of its Central Asian republics has been the resurgence of pastoral nomadism. Taking the Kyrgyz people as a representative example, nomadism was the centre of their economy before Russian colonization at the turn of the 20th century, when they were settled into agricultural villages. The population became increasingly urbanized after World War II, but some people still take their herds of horses and cows to high pastures (jailoo) every summer, continuing a pattern of transhumance.
Since the 1990s, as the cash economy shrank, unemployed relatives were reabsorbed into family farms, and the importance of this form of nomadism has increased. The symbols of nomadism, specifically the crown of the grey felt tent known as the yurt, appears on the national flag, emphasizing the central importance of nomadism in the genesis of the modern nation of Kyrgyzstan.

Добородошли у Пирот! Пирот је мали европски град на југоистоку Србије са богатом културном традицијом и бурном историјом. Налази се на значајној међународној трансверзали “коридору 10”, који повезује Европу са Азијом, у средњем веку познатом као Виа милитарис. Пирот је администратовни центар највећег округа у Републици који са њим чине општине Димитровргад, Бабушница и Бела Паланка, док је по површини од 1232 км2 на трећем месту у Републици. Својевремено је био центар прерађивачке индустрије млечних производа, коже, вуне, дрвета и индустрије одеће. Напоменимо да је имао више грла стоке од ондашње Краљевине касније СФР Југославије. Своју познатост Пирот пре свега дугује пиротском овчијем качкаваљу, пиротском ћилиму.

NAM - Non Aligned Movement is a multinational utopian project that emerged in 1961 from the complex political landscape of the Cold War.Orchestrated by 3 key figures: Josip Broz Tito (president of Yugoslavia), Gamal Abdel Nasser (president of Egypt) and Jawaharlal Nehru (the first prime minister of India); it aimed to achieve national sovereignty, decolonisation, anti-imperialism and new economic world order independent of USSR and US.

"Also, to answer Maia’s question or at the very least attempt to!
I think one alternative to the traditional fashion format would be exemplified by a practice like that of Maison Cleo (Marie and her mom):
In which there is a division of labour, a valuing of craft, a focus on sustainable materials (dead stock fabrics and handmade), but also a focus on transparency in how the labour is carried out and what everything costs. This is a small article of cost breakdown:
There is also a different understanding of distribution: less direct to consumer, more small “product drops” at certain time intervals, and more customization of the order.
Some larger fashion brands take some parts of this way of working and apply it.
This is a mid scale example:
And so is this one:
And this is another sort of larger scale example:
(Notice the production lists the factory which made the garment and I specifically chose this garment as an example because it exemplifies the power dynamics of “Europe”. The clothes are designed in Scandinavia and produced in Romania)
And then there’s is the focus on sustainability which comes less from labour consciousness and more from the use of repurposing, reusing, recycling, dead stock, such as in the case of Duran Lantink:
For me what this points to overall is: putting an emphasis on craft, on recycling, on low scale production, on valuing the labour of your team, and on slowing down the production and consumption processes.
Neither of them “solved capitalism” but they are creating alternatives each in their own way.

Desperados is made by the company called Heineken. Desperados specifically is made at Karlovacka pivovara which is situated in Karlovac, Croatia. Which means that the "European super power" (the Netherlands) took over a Croatian old brewery and now the owners are not Croatian anymore, as it happens with a lot of companies when they enter the eu. So what if we now have a beer made in the Netherlands, but tasts like something made in Balkans?

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake - Morphic Fields
Morphic resonance is a process whereby self-organising systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems. In its most general formulation, morphic resonance means that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits. The hypothesis of morphic resonance also leads to a radically new interpretation of memory storage in the brain and of biological inheritance.
FREEDOM IS NO FEAR
Uranium is the heaviest and last naturally occurring element in the periodic table. The periodic table is a chart that shows how chemical elements are related to each other. Uranium occurs near the beginning of the actinide family. The actinide family consists of elements with atomic numbers 90 through 103.
At one time, uranium was considered to be a relatively unimportant element. It had a few applications in the making of stains and dyes, in producing specialized steels, and in lamps. But annual sales before World War II (1939-45) amounted to no more than a few hundred metric tons of the metal and its compounds.
By far the most important application is in nuclear weapons and nuclear power plants. The reason for this importance is that one isotope of uranium, uranium-235, undergoes nuclear fission.
Nuclear fission is the process by which neutrons are fired at a target. The target is usually made of uranium atoms. When neutrons hit the target, they cause the nuclei of uranium atoms to break apart. Smaller elements are formed and very Large amounts of energy are given off.
When this reaction is carried out with no attempt to capture or control the energy, an enormous explosion takes place. This release of nuclear energy accounts for the power of a nuclear weapon such as an atomic bomb. In reactors, the energy released during fission is used to boil water. Steam is produced and is converted to electricity. The controlled release of nuclear energy takes place in a nuclear power plant.
