During the Galactic Civil War, the Mon Calamari eventually joined the Rebel Alliance after the Empire used a Star Destroyer to destroy three floating cities on their watery world. They proved an invaluable asset, primarily due to the Mon Calamari being masters of starship construction and supplying the Alliance with badly needed capital ships, Mon Calamari Cruisers, that could take on the Galactic Empire's ships of the line. Prior to joining the Alliance, the Mon Calamari had only built passenger liners because of their peaceful ethos. Also renowned for their performance art, lithe Mon Calamari water dancers often perform in some of the galaxy's most prestigious venues, including Coruscant Galaxies Opera House, where the ballet "Squid Lake" ran for some time during the waning days of the Republic and was known to be a personal favorite of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The most famous Mon Calamari is Admiral Ackbar, the supreme admiral of the Rebel Alliance's naval forces. Another Rebellion-sympathetic male Mon Calamari named Quarrie, the spacecraft engineer character named for Star Wars visual artist Ralph McQuarrie, was the designer of the B-wing starfighter prototype named the Blade Wing, as seen in the Star Wars Rebels second-season episode Wings of the Master.

Kaminoans were a sentient species native to Kamino , an aquatic planet located beyond the Rishi Maze . Kaminoan scientists specialized in cloning technology and, at the behest of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas , created the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic . The Sith also worked with the Kaminoans, such as by providing a bio-chip for all clones that would eventually trigger Order 66 , the command that saw the clone troopers turn against the Jedi and bring about the destruction of the Jedi Order .

Kaminoans were a tall, thin species with pale skin from the isolated watery planet of Kamino . The Kaminoans lived in large stilted cities that rose above the ocean surface, such as Tipoca City . Many important or high ranked Kaminoans wore a large, pale collar around their necks. The Kaminoans are best known for their abilities as cloners . They are the creators of the Grand Army of the Republic that fights against the Separatist Droid Army during the Clone Wars - a galaxy-wide conflict named after the clone troopers the Kaminoans made for the Galactic Republic .

Balance Your Work and Personal Life with Yoga. Yoga was very popular in the 1960s when "consciousness" was the rage but it became less popular over time. People began to get frustrated with yoga, which does give you results although they take some time to see. People began using aerobics and other forms of exercise instead. Yoga is now gaining popularity again, although it is a less mystical type of yoga and more about getting your mind and body fit and healthy. If you look at yoga without considering the spiritual aspect, you can see it is a great way to stretch and become more flexible. Many people who want to balance their work and personal life find that yoga helps them do this. Many people have very busy and stressful jobs that leave them feeling tense so they are relying on yoga to help them balance work and personal life. Yoga helps them relax and unwind after a stressful and busy day. Many people find that traditional forms of exercise like weight lifting and aerobics actually make them more stressed out instead of helping them relax. Most of us spend our days rushing around and then rushing around some more to fit in exercise during our lunch hour. This does help us stay healthy but it also adds even more stress to our life. Yoga is a more relaxing form of exercise that reduces stress levels and calms us down. Yoga and the ability to heal is increasing its popularity. Medical issues like back, knee or neck pain makes doing traditional forms of strenuous exercise difficult and painful. Medical experts are beginning to recognize that yoga is a great way for patients to stay in shape without aggravating existing injuries and that is why there are so many videos and books on the subject today. People are becoming more interested in how our body and mind connect and are turning to yoga to help build the connection. There is evidence that yoga helps lower blood pressure and stress, helps you do your job more effectively, and helps slow down the aging process. There are many different forms of yoga that are being used in medical facilities and in the business world. You can find books and discussion groups online on the subject of yoga. The Army is trying to find out more about how yoga may help the military perform better by commissioning a study on the subject. The exact method of doing yoga varies but basically you focus on keeping your body relaxed and focusing your mind on an object, a sound, your breathing or the way your body is moving. When your mind begins to wander, you just refocus. As many as 60% to 90% of the doctor visits are a result of stress so treating the mind and body with yoga can be a good way to maintain your health and reduce stress. Women who suffer from infertility, for example, are three times as likely to get pregnant when doing yoga, and people with insomnia are three times more likely to get rid of this problem.
