What other exercises can I do with this pole with straps?

I got this pilates bar with straps on it from Danskin last year, and it is the bomb diggity. I normally hook my feet into the loops on the bottom part of the strap and do arm or core stuff, like little bicep or tricep curls. What other things should I try with it? Also, is there a better name for it? If I knew exactly what it was called I'd probably have better luck googling for it...
