A common misconception about hula is that it's a dance tradition strictly for women. Nope. In ancient #Hawaii, men were the first to dance hula, and the best dancers were even chosen to become warriors. Today, Ke Kai O Kahiki—one of Hawaii's most famous male #hula schools—is carrying on this tradition by telling warrior stories with dance. To do so, dancers train in the same way as their ancient forbearers, using the land itself as a harsh and unforgiving gym. To dance like a warrior, you need to train like one.

Photographer Emanuele Satolli has been covering the battle for Mosul since it first started. He recently returned as Iraqi forces work to free western neighborhoods from the deadly grip of ISIS.
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on February 19 announced the launch of the operation to retake western Mosul. #Mosul, #Iraq, fell to the terror group in June 2014, and the offensive to regain control of Iraq’s second-largest city began this past October. The eastern side of the city was liberated in late January. But the battle for the west likely will prove to be much tougher.
Streets are narrow, and armored vehicles cannot pass through some corridors and alleyways. And it’s a more densely populated area: As many as 800,000 civilians live in western Mosul, according to the United Nations. (Photos: Emanuele Satolli @emanuelesatolli) go to cnn.com/photos for more

CNN's Fred Pleitgen @fpleitgencnn and crew were caught up in scuffles with Moscow police during anti-corruption protests on Sunday. Hundreds of people, including prominent opposition figure and Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny, were arrested for taking part in unauthorized demonstrations. Navalny has accused Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev of amassing a global property empire through various forms of corruption.
Muslim women gathered on Westminster Bridge on Sunday to remember the victims of the London terror attack. They formed a human chain along the bridge with women from non-Muslim backgrounds, and many wore blue as a symbol of peace. The attack on Wednesday left four people dead, including a police officer; the attacker was also killed. A British counterterrorism official has told CNN investigators currently believe the attacker was more likely inspired by ISIS than directed by the terrorist group. Daniel Leal-Olivas/Getty Images

Why are Stradivari violins worth so much? Hint: Turn on your sound. This one is expected to go for about $2 million at auction next week. Their sound is unparalleled, the auctioneer explains, because "Stradivari got it right, the balance between hard and soft [wood], so the box can vibrate."
