Circassians and Circassia

The Circassians are a North Caucasian ethnic group[19] native to Circassia, who were displaced in the course of the Russian conquest of the Caucasus in the 19th century, especially after the Russian–Circassian War in 1864. The term “Circassian” includes the Adyghe (Circassian: Адыгэ, Adyge) and Kabardian people.[20]

The Circassians mainly speak the Circassian language, a Northwest Caucasian language with numerous dialects. The Circassians also speak Turkish and Arabic in large numbers and various other languages of the Middle East, having been exiled by Russia to lands of the Ottoman Empire, where the majority of them today live, and to a lesser extent neighboring Persia, where most of them came either deported en masse by the Safavids and Qajars, or to a lesser extent as muhajirs in the 19th century like in Ottoman Turkey.[21][22][23][24][25] The predominant religion amongst Circassians is Sunni Islam, Minority Habze, Orthodox Christian and Catholic.

There remain about 700,000 Circassians in historical Circassia (the republics of Adygea, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, and the southern half of Krasnodar Krai), as well as a number in the Russian Federation outside these republics. The 2010 Russian Census recorded 718,727 Circassians, of which 516,826 are Kabardians, 124,835 are Adyghe proper, 73,184 are Cherkess and 3,882 Shapsugs.[6]

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization estimates that there are as many as 3.7 million “ethnic Circassians” in the diaspora outside the Circassian republics (meaning that only one in seven “ethnic Circassians” lives in the homeland), of whom about 2 million live in Turkey, 700,000 in the Russian Federation, about 150,000 in the Levant and Mesopotamia, and about 50,000 in Europe and the United States.



The best way to get CREATIVE ideas is by WALKING!

The Science of Inspiration (and How to Make It Work for You)

A lot of us are searching in some parts of our lives for creative ideas, we try all kinds of inspiration setting techniques but no luck, either if we were searching for a new idea in our job, or just trying to come up with something creative to invest it, in both ways a lot of us collide into a barrier, like your mind is surrounded by a membrane which prevents any idea (the best of them at least) to enter!
Well, if that did not happen to you, it did to me 😦 Not long ago I got to read an article about walking, and I decided to give it a try  for a period, I won’t tell you that by walking I got “the million box idea” but it surely helped me to recycle my ideas and reform new ones, in simple words this walking thing ,when I collide with a barrier, got me to bypass around some obstacles which is good thing in a search for a creative idea.

Why you should go for a walk when you need creative inspiration
