A friend of mine found an old military medal in New Hampshire. It appears to be made of tin or some other light metal and handmade. The first part is a twig attached to a decoration, and the second part is arrows in a pouch. I put video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlPqFhq6xdY
The audio is from Lost, which was playing when I did the video.
Does anyone know what these medals are?

My mother has over 100 Indian saris in her closet that she would like to get rid of. She would really like to donate them to some organization that could make use of them. We live in the US, so just taking them to Goodwill wouldn't work. Are there any thrift stores or charity organizations in the US which cater to a South Asian community and/or would accept the saris? Would anyone even want them? [more inside]

I often eat at a couple of few different pakistani restaurant and have noticed they both play pretty much the same songs in the restaurant. Rather than ask the restaurant staff, I'm asking metafilter: Is there a common list of songs popularly played at these establishments? What are the songs that would be in such a list?

NPR-story-with-little-to-go-on-filter: Several years ago, I heard a radio story involving a tribal election in which one candidate was represented as being for re-investing funds in the tribe, while another was for direct payments to tribe members. An tribe member, interviewed, said he'd vote for the latter, although even he didn't think it was best for the tribe or for him in the long term -- because he wanted the cash. [more inside]
