Not every dancer can be a ballerina, and not every ballerina gets to dance with the New York City Ballet. So when one makes it, and then stays with the company for three decades, it’s a big deal. Wendy Whelan is that ballerina. And on Saturday night, at 47 years old, she’ll give her final New York City Ballet performance before she retires. "I’m sure I’ll get very emotional after," Whelan says. "I don’t expect to get emotional during. It’s not my style, I just don’t do that. But I’ll probably enter a depression, and I just know that I will do that because I always do that after a big ballet experience. … But this is the end of a ballet career, so that’s a bit bigger than just a season of ballet." |||||||||| Hear the story and see more photos from the preparation for Whelan’s last performance over at NPR.org (Photo by Erin Baiano for NPR / @erinbaiano) #ballet #dance #newyorkcity

The city of Yushu is a roughly 12-hour drive from Xining, the capital of China’s Qinghai province. It traverses huge, sparsely inhabited stretches of the eastern Tibetan plateau, where the road stretches on, much like parts of the American west. Recent changes to the area are immediately visible: new road construction and gleaming metal electricity pylons are going up very quickly. This construction is essential to the Chinese government’s policy — which has prompted some criticism at home and abroad — of settling nomads in fixed communities. The vast expanses of Qinghai province contain many remote mountaintops and valleys where nomads live in tents and herd their yaks as they have for centuries. But in many areas, including Yushu’s urban center, residents say government investment has picked up, and they feel the pace of development is rapidly accelerating. Read more at npr.org! ////////// Tibetan prayer flags, with Buddhist sutras printed on them, form a web around a temple. The temple overlooks the Tongtian River, which flows into the Yangtze.

chrisandyumi : @janicegli Of course yaks have an environmental impact. So does the neighborhood stray dog. At least yaks are not blighting the landscape. The speed of "development" here in China is shocking, and there is virtually no interest in preserving culture or wildlife.
littleshosh : @abloemendaal
rosemay27 : @kathymoranpt was Dan anywhere near here?
mazafratz : I see a cultural genocide. Whether it's destroying the people or their way of life, China is eradicating Tibetan culture. In the US we can look back and admit that what we did to Indigenous People was wrong. China is doing the same thing. We know better. We do nothing.
kathymoranpt : No. He was in the east but very far north. Harbin and Changchun
kritzau : @tamaray check this out!
gigicolette : @mazafratz I will second everything you just said.
tenkalz : I always dreamt of going to Tibet someday if given the opportunity but I fear when that arrives, I will be going to a Tibet that is far different from the one my parents and grandparents left.

For an upcoming piece, Linda Werthheimer and Rachel Ward recently visited the Fiesta factory to see how the pottery line was made. (Like many others, Linda is a devoted Fiesta collector.) And we imagine some of you are as well. Please take a picture of you with your Fiesta, tag it #nprfiesta, and we may feature it on our website! (This is Rachel, with her Fiesta West Virginia Public Broadcasting mug.) β˜•οΈ
