Bollywood dance moves are now a familiar sight on Western TV and cinema screens. But what is the symbolism of the gestures, footwork and costumes drawn from classical Indian dance styles? Bollywood dance is easy on the eye. Dramatic facial expressions and cinematic pizzazz means any viewer, dance aficionado or not, can follow the story. But beneath the fizz is a series of historic symbols and traditions, which originate in India's numerous traditional dance forms. Classical dance forms such as Bharatnatyam and Kathak , and folk dances such as Bhangra, each have their own unique styles, but they often share signs and meanings that are combined to create modern Bollywood dances.

Tom DeLonge's Alien

It’s been a big weekend for UFO aficionados and believers. In a story published this weekend, former Pentagon official Luis Elizondo and others spoke to The New York Times and Politico to confirm the existence of a UFO-related investigative program at the Pentagon called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The program was begun in 2007 under the oversight of Senator (and then Majority Leader) Harry Reid, and ostensibly shut down by the Defense Department in 2012. However, reports indicate that the program, which put some of their designated funds towards an aerospace research company, has continued to operate clandestinely within the Pentagon.
