Fort Motors building being demolished

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — It’s officially the end of an era in Fort St. John after WL Construction crews began demolishing the old Fort Motors building on 100th Street this morning.Fort Motors was founded at the corner of 100th Street and 96th Ave. by Wally and Opal Gentles on January 2nd, 1961. The couple’s son Brian purchased the Ford dealership from his parents in 1993, and oversaw its move to its present location on Alaska Road in 2006. Since then, Gentles has allowed area non-profit organizations to use the vacant building for anything from storage to dance lessons. Though he sold Fort Motors in 2016, Gentles still owns the lot where the dealership stood for 45 years. He said that the building is now past its useful lifespan, and has decided to knock the building down in order to start the environmental cleanup of the lot.  Gentles said that from the time the backhoe first hit the building, it only took 45 minutes to reduce it to a pike of rubble. He added that the full cleanup will likely take at least several days as the building’s material is sorted and properly disposed of.According to Gentles, the vast majority of the environmental reclamation will need to be done to address contamination from a gas station that used to sit on the lot. He explained that though the fuel tanks were removed some years ago, the site will still need to be cleaned up before any new development can be done.Gentles added that he doesn’t have any future plans to develop the site and that has hasn’t gotten any offers to buy the property, but that he won’t likely be responsible for getting the site developed.last_img read more

Europes restrictive measures place added hardships on refugees and asylumseekers – UN

Refugees and migrants continue to cross parts of the Mediterranean in desperate attempts to make it to Europe. Credit: UN News CentreThe risks include lack of proper registration in line with EU and international standards, the selection of people on the basis of nationality and other criteria rather than protection needs, and the heightened likelihood of pushbacks and people being stranded in the open. Such practices also undermine the conclusions reached by the European Council last week recalling that to enter the EU without adequate travel documentation, people need to apply for asylum when reaching an EU country, UNHCR said. The practices have already resulted in a build-up of refugees and asylum-seekers and migrants in Greece and in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, where nearly 700 people, mostly Afghan nationals, have been barred from accessing admission into Serbia. In order to support a joint approach and to allay fears and potential chaos, States need to inform refugees and asylum-seekers of their procedures, including clear details on the criteria for access to admission, asylum or return, in line with applicable laws, the UN agency said. “Some States are shifting problems onward rather than trying to genuinely share responsibility and show solidarity with one another and with those in need of protection,” UNHCR said. “A comprehensive, coordinated strategy built on shared responsibility, solidarity and trust among all European States working together is the only way to approach the current emergency.” UNHCR added that it is making good progress in providing accommodation for 20,000 asylum-seekers in Greece, and will continue to provide support to States to help manage the situation humanely and in line with international standards. The agency also urges the creation and expansion of credible alternative pathways for refugees to reach safety in Europe and elsewhere in order to ensure that movements are manageable and safe, such as enhanced resettlement, humanitarian admission, family reunifications and student/work visas. In a press release, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that the newest restrictive measures put in place by several European countries risk violating European Union (EU) law and undermine efforts for a comprehensive and coordinated approach to deal with the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe. On 17 February, Austria announced it would place a daily limit of 3,200 people to enter its territory and only accept 80 new asylum applications per day. Slovenia announced a similar cap to restrict movements across its borders. In addition, on 18 February, the heads of police services of Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia announced an agreement to jointly profile and register refugees and asylum-seekers at the border between the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Greece, as well as take a number of additional actions to manage the situation. “While coordinated action can help the management of the mixed migration movement, the statement has been interpreted differently by countries, resulting in increased protection risks for refugees and asylum-seekers, particularly those with specific needs, such as unaccompanied and separated children,” the UNHCR noted in its statement. read more

Get notified when one of your Facebook friends ditches you

first_imgI did not know this, but last Friday was supposed to be a Facebook Defriend Day. This was a day when you were meant to clean up your list of friends, i.e. remove those who are no longer your friends or you feel have mistreated you in some way.So if you log into Facebook today and notice that half of your friends are missing you will no why. However, it could take some time tracking down which friends have left, especially if you have hundreds of them. The reason being that Facebook does not have an email facility in place which informs you when a friend leaves and nor would they, as Facebook does not want to advertise that somebody has left the service, after all it’s bad for publicity.AdChoices广告A solution does exist, though, and takes the shape of 3rd party plug-in’s. One such example is the aptly named Defriend Alert which is no doubt trying to cash in on the above. It was developed by Seattle based Nick Patrick who has previously worked on iPhone apps, Reminders and Alarm System.There is nothing more to note about Defriend Alert, other than that once you grant it access to your Facebook account it will monitor your friends list and send out an email alerting you when one of your friends has decided to ditch you.Read more at Defriend Alert Brett’s OpinionI can see this being useful for business users, after all if one of your key customers ditches you it would be interesting to find out the reasons why. But for personal use I cannot see the point and I have a mis-trust for any application(s) that wants to gain access to my account. Besides, I have had friends defriend me on Facebook in the past and then a week later come back on-board, so if an app is emailing you every time a friend leaves it  could lead to the wrong conclusions and invoke a ton of spam in your inbox to boot.For hundreds of friends it may be more useful, but I know some people who have friends on their list that they can’t remember who they are anyway, so being alerted to the fact they have gone doesn’t really seem like such a problem.last_img read more

Samaras sets out political themes for 2010

first_imgNew Democracy leader Antonis Samaras has issued an optimistic message for 2010, making it clear that his government will support as well as oppose the government’s policies when the situation demands it.He ignored comments by ND’s honorary president and former Prime Minister Constantine Mitsotakis who suggested that a national emergency government should be formed by PASOK to push through economic reforms. “At crucial times, many fear the future but do not let fear cast a shadow over your hearts,” said Samaras in his New Year’s message. “The light will begin to shine in 2010 and there is hope that a new dawn is not far away.”Samaras is in the process of reshaping the conservative party since taking over its leadership in November. “New Democracy will show a new face in the new year,” said Samaras. “It will inspire with its proposals, it will stop all that needs to be stopped, it will support everything that needs to be supported.”Samaras did not comment on the proposals made by Mitsotakis, the father of his defeated opponent Dora Bakoyannis, which suggested that PASOK should take bolder measures and call on experienced figures to help revive the country’s economy.“[European Central Bank Vice President] Lucas Papademos should be asked to take over the central management of the economy, [former PASOK MP and minister] Alekos Papadopoulos should take over public finances,” said Mitsotakis.“These two along with Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou should form a mini-cabinet which [former Prime Minister] Costas Simitis should be asked to chair as a minister without portfolio.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Cheer for Vodafone Idea employees salaries to be raised first time after

first_imgVodafone Idea Limited plans to raise to raise Rs 15,000 crore fundBringing cheer to thousands of its employees, India’s largest telecom player by market share, Vodafone-Idea, is planning to give salary increments in the month of June this year. People close to the development told the Economic Times that the rate of promotion is going to be rare.It is to be noted that the employees of Idea Cellular and Vodafone have not been given salary corrections since 2017 amid deliberations taking place for the merger of the two companies. Now, with the merger processs streamlined, the company is likely to give salary hikes to its 14,000-strong workforce.”Hikes will be 5-7% on average and will happen across levels. When a large-scale merger takes place, there is always a sense of apprehension among employees. The masses are sticking around because they are yet to get the right break. A raise now, after a gap of a year, will send the right signals,” said the person aware of the development.Price warIndustry experts believe that the timing of this development is important with the fact that the newer entrant in the market, Reliance Jio, has given salary hikes to its employees, although marginal. In a recent interaction with the company employees Vodafone Idea chief executive Balesh Sharma has hinted that the company is mooting the idea of a salary increment in June. Another person close to talks said: “The company has just given new roles and responsibilities, created new hierarchies and it will be too early to give designation changes.”The entry of Reliance Jio in the Indian Telecom sector had triggered a wave of consolidation with smaller players either exiting or going bankrupt. With deep pockets, Reliance Jio offered deep discounts on data and voice plans, triggering a price war.last_img read more

The Gifted Season 2 Ep 7 Recap Why Are We Watching the

first_img It’s about time The Gifted turned its flashback eye on Reeva Page. As one of the main antagonists of this season, we know shockingly little about her. She wasn’t always the ruthless advocate for a mutant-only society we know today. In her younger days, she was the moderate in her activist group. During a meeting to discuss the housing discrimination forcing mutants out of their neighborhood, she’s the one against forcing non-mutant families out of their homes. At this point in her life, she wants everyone to get along. We see the incident that changes her mind. As she argues with her friend, the leader of her group, a group of proto-Purifiers show up to further vandalize their building. It turns into a full-on assault, and when the mutants defend themselves, one of the men stabs her friend. Just like Magneto before her, Reeva has good reasons for doing what she does.In the present, Reeva prepares for the hit on the bank, which turns out to be much harder on her than you’d think. The man she was texting turned out to be little more than a mark. A security expert working at the bank they want to hit. Using a combination of Frost manipulation and the age old tactic of threatening his children, she makes him into an accomplice. He goes into work like any other day, but shuts down the anti-mutant scanner. That allows the Inner Circle to gain access, take total control over the bank’s assets, and force the manager to reveal all the bank’s past crimes against mutants on video. All in all, a successful mission that goes off without a hitch. Until…Percy Hynes and guest star Anjelica Bette Fellini (Photo Credit: Annette Brown/FOX)As cute as Andy’s budding romance with Rebecca was, he may have sold her a little too hard on the Inner Circle’s mission. As ruthless as Reeva can be, this is the first time we’ve seen her explicitly try to limit casualties. She wants a separate mutant nation, but there’s still a little bit of the person she used to be in her. She’s not out to slaughter non-mutants. She got what she came for, and that’s that. Rebecca disagrees. Set off by the manager’s comments that mutants should all be wiped out, she’s unsatisfied with Reeva’s plan to escape. She’s been subjected to some brutal torture driven by anti-mutant sentiments, and she’s out for revenge. As Reeva turns to leave, Rebecca turns everyone trapped inside the bank inside out, leaving a massive bloody smear on the wall.One of the season’s big struggles has been selling the Inner Circle as actual villains. Especially with the much scarier, much more real threat of the Purifiers around. Now, we’re seeing how it might start to pay off. Because really, as extreme as the Inner Circle’s goals are, they’re perfectly understandable. You can see exactly where they’re coming from. Rebecca is different. She wants revenge more than anything, and she’s powerful enough to take it. Even Reeva might be in over her head here. It’s possible, like all good X-Men stories, the antagonists aren’t out and out villains. If Rebecca gets too far out of control, it might take both the Inner Circle and the Underground to contain her. That’s all speculation at this point, of course, but it’s a direction the season could go.Jamie Chung and Sean Teale (Photo Credit: Jace Downs/FOX)Meanwhile, both the Mutant Underground and Jace Turner are dealing with the aftermath of the Purifiers’ attack. At the Underground, Reed’s powers are still out of control, and it’s getting dangerous. Caitlin suggests moving him to the clinic the Purifiers attacked, where extra damage would go unnoticed, and she could maybe find a way to help him. With no other options, Eclipse and Thunderbird work to fortify an ambulance with scrap metal. It won’t hold forever, but they hope it lasts long enough to get him there. It does, but moving Reed isn’t even half the battle. Going through his father’s old files, they find the name of a doctor who may be able to help him. So they’ll have to transport him again next week.Honestly, the Underground was the weakest story of the episode. It’s a whole bunch of arguments and emotional-sounding speeches that don’t go anywhere. Lauren wrestles with how much of the Von Struckers she sees in herself (the violent tendencies, not the nazism or incest, thankfully), but that internal struggle comes and goes without any real sense of purpose. Meanwhile, the rest of the Underground argues amongst themselves over how much they should trust the Morlocks. It’s really hard to root for the heroes when all they do is build a truck and fret about having too many allies.Stephen Moyer (Photo Credit: Jace Downs/FOX)Turner’s story is much more interesting, containing some actual conflict. After he led a raid that ended with one mutant dead, a prominent supporter of the Purifiers wants to meet with him. Someone who’s donated a lot of money to the cause. It turns out to be a TV personality who sees an opportunity in Turner. He has a story that can be used to make the Purifiers more sympathetic. Turner’s daughter is going to be used as anti-mutant propaganda. As a man trying to reconnect with his wife, who stopped talking to him because of his anti-mutant obsession, he’s not entirely comfortable with the idea. Especially when they ask him to sell out Sentinel Services. They want Turner to tell the public that Sentinel Services can’t do the job, and that the purifiers are the way forward.It’s not hard to see who this man is a stand-in for. The Gifted is an X-Men show, after all. It’s not going to pass up an opportunity to comment on real world politics. The commentary becomes almost painfully obvious after Turner refuses to betray the people he served with. The TV personality tries to impress him with his power. “I’ve got a direct line to the president,” he says. Hmmm, what conservative TV personality do we know of who reportedly regularly talks to the President of the United States on the phone? Who has contributed to spreading and normalizing a racist agenda… Yeah, it’s on the nose, but I love it when The Gifted does stuff like this. It’s a reminder that the writers know exactly what kind of story they’re telling. And with this subject matter, they’re able to take the metaphor further than pretty much any other show on TV right now. And all without any lines about making anything great again.Skyler Samuels, Percy Hynes White, Grace Byers, Emma Dumont and guest star Anjelica Bette Fellini (Photo Credit: Annette Brown/FOX)Turner soon finds himself pressured into doing the TV appearance anyway. He may have had reservations about joining a hate group, but whether he likes it or not, he’s fully in one now. No amount of conflicted brooding looks are going to change that. He might be a bit less conflicted now though. As the episode ends, he hears about the Inner Circle’s attack at the bank. We’ve already seen that Turner’s not one for nuance. It doesn’t matter to him that the Mutant Underground and the Inner Circle are two opposing factions. To him, mutants committed the attack, therefore all mutants are guilty. He uses one group’s attack to paint an entire race with the same broad brush. This is how fascism works. I just wish The Gifted didn’t look so much like the news that comes on an hour later.‘The Gifted’ airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Fox.Previously on The Gifted:‘The Gifted’ Season 2, Episode 6 RecapThe Gifted Season 2, Episode 5 RecapThe Gifted Season 2, Episode 4 Recap Stay on target ‘The Gifted’ S2 Finale Recap: Death, Destruction & Hope for Season 3’The Gifted’ Season 2, Ep 5 Recap: The Reunion We’ve Waited For last_img read more

E 82, 056104 (2010) DOI:10.1103/PhysRevE.82.056104 ( — While most people know that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, this concept is proving even truer in the world of stock trading. In a world where buying low and selling high means all the difference, racing the speed of light between to different financial markets can mean greater profit. With financial markets being located all over the world, stock trading has become reliant on the speed of fiber optic cables and their ability to process information. While fiber optic cables are currently operating at about 90 percent of the speed of light, Dr. Alexander Wissner-Gross shares how companies might be able to exploit physics and position themselves in locations capable of more competitive speeds and transactions.In a paper first released in 2010 in the Physical Review E, Dr. Wissner-Gross determined locations that are at the most optimal sites to best compete with the current locations of financial markets. With the idea that the quickest route between two points is a straight line, he determined locations which would essentially be right in the center of that line. This location being ideal in the fact that you then had the shortest distance to cover for both markets, thus better setting your business up to buy low and sell high between the two markets.For example, should you be a trader working off the New York Stock Exchange and the exchanges in Europe, your ideal location would end up somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. However, while this information is valid, there are not many companies ready to construct a floating office.With this problem in mind, Dr. Wissner-Gross is now looking at determining land points which would approximate these mid-ocean locations. Using the above example of New York and Europe, he would now look at a location such as Nova Scotia.This physics trick may just be able to provide a very competitive edge to many companies, and over the years, we may just see many financial trading hubs popping up in the least likely locations. No more will they be dependent on buzzing cities and large markets, but they could be springing up in rural areas that provide the best locational advantage to cutting the distance needed to travel the world of fiber optic cables.

Is Your Tech Impeding Your Biz Growth

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. March 6, 2006 Every structure–whether it’s a home, an office building or a bridge–needs a foundation. Without one, the structure simply can’t endure or be expanded upon. The same is true in business today: Every company that relies on information access and instant communications–which means just about every small business–needs a solid network infrastructure as a foundation.Unfortunately, many small businesses don’t have a secure, consistent network foundation. In order to grow quickly, many small companies have accumulated a hodgepodge of network connection solutions, including DSL and dial-up. Their network cabling, hardware and devices (such as routers, firewalls and switches) often come from multiple vendors.But multiple vendors and an inconsistent array of network technologies can leave your business vulnerable to security threats. Your business can’t easily make its data resources securely and widely available to users. Time, money and resources are wasted. The business isn’t as nimble as it could be. Workers aren’t as productive; customers aren’t as satisfied.A solid network foundation that ties all your technologies together cost-effectively supports your company’s business processes, increases operational efficiencies, lowers costs, increases security and makes it possible to easily add more advanced technology as needs arise.In this month’s column, I’ll explain what a network foundation is, how it benefits your small business, and how you can have one.What Is a Network Foundation?At a high level, a network foundation is a secure, flexible communications platform that enables your small business’s many data-enabled tools and systems to work together.A network foundation consists of several key hardware components, with routers and switches chief among them. Switches reside in your local-area network, and routers are used to create a wide-area network.In addition, a network foundation may include wireless access points, which allow laptops, printers and other devices such as handheld Internet Protocol (IP) phones to wirelessly connect to the network or share broadband connectivity.And a strong network foundation includes security technology that’s integrated into devices such as routers. This security provides such protections as firewall technology, which blocks unauthorized access to your network.A network foundation may also include devices such as adaptive security appliances, which protect against network threats and provide application security, network control and containment, and secure connectivity technologies. What Are the Benefits? Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » 5 min read A consistent, secure, reliable network foundation can provide your small business with many benefits, including:Anytime, anywhere information access. Employees can securely access company databases from home or on the road, turning what might be “dead” time into productive time.Flexibility. A solid network foundation allows growing companies to be flexible in their future plans. It can be scaled up as a business grows and new employees are added.Faster information exchange. A single network foundation provides the opportunity to easily and securely exchange information among employees, partners and clients. Enhanced collaboration can lead to faster decision making, better customer service–and ultimately, improved profits.The ability to add newer, emerging technologies. A secure network foundation provides the platform your business needs to add voice over internet protocall (VoIP), video teleconferencing from your PC, webcasting, and other productivity-enhancing and cost-saving technologies. Your business applications can evolve from simple printer sharing to complex business-to-business data exchanges and supply-chain management using the same network infrastructure.Enhanced security. Without a common network foundation, a business may have multiple internet connections and various types of hardware devices–an environment that’s extremely difficult to secure. In contrast, a single network foundation is streamlined and consistent, making it much easier to secure.The ability to maintain data in a single location. By making your databases and information resources available from one place, users throughout the company–including sales as well as accounting–have access to the same data. That helps employees provide better customer service and make more informed decisions.What Does a Network Foundation Require?Establishing a solid network foundation isn’t necessarily inexpensive. And many small businesses are used to spending as little as possible on technology.But as I explained in last month’s column (” Creating a Technology Roadmap “), it’s important for small businesses to make sure the technology they invest in today can support their needs tomorrow. Map your short- and long-term business goals to the network-enabled technologies that can help your business realize those goals. If you weigh the many competitive and financial advantages of a secure network foundation against the costs over time, you’ll quickly see the return on investment.The good news is that building a strong network foundation is getting much easier. Just a few years ago, the kind of comprehensive network foundation I described earlier would have been cost-prohibitive for small businesses. But in recent years, hardware and software prices have declined dramatically, and the small business sector has grown in size and clout. The result: Many technology vendors are now offering affordable products and services–as well as attractive leasing options–especially tailored for small business.Financial resources are only part of the story, of course. Many small businesses lack the human resources to deploy and maintain a solid network infrastructure. Again, thanks to the growing clout of small business, many network vendors have partners and resellers that specialize in helping small businesses set up a comprehensive network foundation.In summary, a hodgepodge of network technologies might help you in the short term. But for the long haul, your business–like anything built to last–needs a solid foundation.last_img read more

Cyber Attacks Force a Defense Strategy ReThink

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global A barrage of damaging cyberattacks is shaking up the security industry, with some businesses and organizations no longer assuming they can keep hackers at bay, and instead turning to waging a guerrilla war from within their networks.U.S. insurer Anthem Inc last week said hackers may have made off with some 80 million personal health records. Also, Amy Pascal said she would step down as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, two months after hackers raided the company’s computers and released torrents of damaging emails and employee data.Such breaches, say people in the industry, offer a chance for younger, nimbler companies trying to sell customers new techniques to protect data and outwit attackers. These range from disguising valuable data, diverting attackers up blind alleys, and figuring out how to mitigate breaches once the data has already gone.”Suddenly, the music has completely changed,” said Udi Mokady, founder of U.S.-based CyberArk. “It’s not just Sony, it’s a culmination of things that has turned our industry around.”Worldwide spending on IT security was about $70 billion last year, estimates Gartner. ABI Research reckons cybersecurity spending on critical infrastructure alone, such as banks, energy and defense, will reach $109 billion by 2020.Several things are transforming the landscape. Corporations have been forced to allow employees to use their own mobile phones and tablets for work, and let them access web-based services like Facebook and Gmail from office computers. All this offers attackers extra opportunities to gain access to their networks.And the attackers and their methods have changed.Cyber criminals and spies are being overshadowed by politically or religiously motivated activists, says Bryan Sartin, who leads a team of researchers and investigators at Verizon Enterprise Solutions, part of Verizon Communications. “They want to hurt the victim, and they have hundreds of ways of doing it,” he said in a phone interview.Closing the DoorThe result: companies can no longer count on defending themselves with decades-old tools like firewalls to block traffic and antivirus software to catch malware, and then assume all traffic that does make it within the network is legitimate.Research by IT security company FireEye last month, for example, found that “attackers are bypassing conventional security deployments almost at will.” Across industries from legal to healthcare it found nearly all systems had been breached.”Once an attacker has made it past those defenses they’re in the gooey center, and getting around is relatively simple,” said Ryan Wager, director of product management at vArmour.Attackers can lurk inside a network for half a year before being detected. “That’s like having a bad guy inside your house for six months before you know about it,” says Aamir Lakhani, security strategist at Fortinet Inc, a network security company.Security start-ups have developed different approaches based on the assumption that hackers are already, or soon will be, inside the network.Canada-based Camouflage, for example, replaces confidential data in files that don’t need it, like training databases, with fictitious but usable data. This makes attackers think they have stolen something worthwhile. U.S.-based TrapX Security creates traps of ‘fake computers’ loaded with fake data to redirect and neutralize attacks.California-based vArmour tries to secure data centers by monitoring and protecting individual parts of the network. In the Target Corp breach during the 2013 holiday shopping season, for example, attackers were able to penetrate 97 different parts of the company’s network by moving sideways through the organization, according to vArmour’s Wager.”You need to make sure that when you close the door, the criminal is actually on the other side of the door,” he said.’Threat Intelligence’Funding these start-ups are U.S- and Europe-based venture capital firms which sense another industry ripe for disruption.Google Ventures and others invested $22 million in ThreatStream in December, while Bessemer Venture Partners last month invested $30 million in iSIGHT Partners. Both companies focus on so-called ‘threat intelligence’ – trying to understand what attackers are doing, or plan to do.Clients are starting to listen.Veradocs’ CEO and co-founder Ajay Arora says that while his product is not officially live, his firm is already working with companies ranging from hedge funds to media entertainment groups to encrypt key documents and data.UK-based Darktrace, which uses math and machine learning to spot abnormalities in a network that might be an attack, has a customer base that includes Virgin Trains, Norwegian shipping insurer DNK and several telecoms companies.But it’s slow going. Despite being open for business since 2013, it’s only been in the past six months that interest has really picked up, says Darktrace’s director of technology Dave Palmer. “The idea that indiscriminate hacking would target all organizations is only starting to get into the consciousness.”(Editing by Ian Geoghegan) 5 min read February 9, 2015 This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now »last_img read more

Turkey tweaks cult of national founder

first_img Comments   Share   A 22-meter (72-foot) high copper statue of Ataturk _ the country’s biggest of the iconic figure _ was inaugurated on May 19 in northeastern Turkey, a tribute to the near-mystical hold that Ataturk exerts over his fervent believers, whose admiration is rooted in his success in imposing secular values on a largely Muslim nation.Yet the cult of Ataturk, once a staple of Turkish state ideology, is slowly, sometimes imperceptibly, being diluted, replaced in part by the Ottoman imperial era as inspiration for an Islamist-rooted government with its own set of ideas about modernity, morality and regional stature.To be sure, Ataturk, whose surname means “father of the Turks,” is still seemingly everywhere more than 70 years after his death.His face is on banknotes. His piercing eyes and widow’s peak adorn framed portraits in public offices, and many shops and homes. His sarcophagus lies in a giant mausoleum in the capital, Ankara. Istanbul’s main international airport is named after him. Turkish law says it is a crime to insult his name, though prosecutions have eased up in recent years.But Turkey is a nation in the grip of an astonishing transformation, and such official reverence appears increasingly out of sync with the times. Sponsored Stories Top Stories “They’re highlighting the ways that Mustafa Kemal was directly implicated in crimes,” he said. “They see Mustafa Kemal as somebody with a complex historical legacy. They don’t feel that he should be at the center of policy, and they certainly don’t think that rituals that prioritize the military should be at the center.”Tansel Colasan, president of a foundation that promotes the national founder, wrote in an email that it was “unfortunate” that the leaders of military coups in 1971 and 1980 claimed to act in the name of Ataturk. She also criticized the “jargon of radical/fanatic pro-Islamic media” that has recently denigrated Ataturk, saying it ignores how he laid the foundations of a country that is a symbol of “peace and stability” in the Middle East.The government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, sometimes accused of illiberal tendencies and score-settling, says it is committed to secular politics and intent on joining the European Union despite a troubled candidacy for membership. At the same time, it has presided over a flourishing of pride in the Islam-based, Ottoman empire and perceptions, open to dispute, that its rulers were tolerant and pluralistic. Old mosques have been restored, Ottoman-era calligraphy is back in style as an art form and period television dramas are popular in Turkey and beyond its borders. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family But there is only one guiding light for Kahvecioglu, who poured his savings into the $2.2 million statue of Ataturk in Artvin, his hometown near Georgia. It depicts Ataturk in uniform and a high cap, hunched forward, apparently in deep thought during a campaign against a Greek army just before Turkey was founded in 1923.Kahvecioglu said he carried firewood from the mountains as a child, went to law school, ran unsuccessfully for mayor, did business for one of Turkey’s richest men and ran a charity foundation that built facilities in Artvin. He dismissed criticism on the Internet that he was an idol-worshipper who should have spent the statue funds on the poor. “I was always a rebel against injustice,” he said.And a new generation of Turks is growing up with Ataturk, even if the national adulation is not what it was. Every morning, children in elementary school recite an oath that includes the line:“O Great Ataturk! On the path you opened, toward the goal you have shown, I vow to march without hesitation.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Associated PressISTANBUL (AP) – On a trip to Rio de Janeiro, a Turkish notary public gazed at the Christ the Redeemer statue that looms over the Brazilian city and was inspired to build a monumental likeness of his idol: Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Turkey’s independence war hero and national founder.“I said to myself: `Jesus Christ is a great man, but my Ataturk is as great as him,’” said 78-year-old Sitki Kahvecioglu, who fulfilled his dream 15 years later.center_img Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Men’s health affects baby’s health too New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Today’s Turkey is a democracy grappling with an authoritarian legacy, a market economy whose explosive growth in the past decade is the bedrock of newfound swagger and a Western ally with historical and cultural links to the Middle East that place it at the forefront of debate about the change sweeping the region.It is also led by pious Muslims whose electoral triumphs drained power from military-backed classes that championed the code of Ataturk, who pulled together a nation from the wreckage of the Ottoman Empire, diminished Islam’s influence by decree, welded Turkish ethnicity to national identity and reinforced the power of the state over the individual. The current government has sought to soften that credo, preserving Ataturk as a national icon but chipping away at the idea that his word, and traditional expressions of homage, are inviolable.“In the past, to say `Ataturk said so’ would be the end of the discussion,” said Mustafa Akyol, author of “Islam without Extremes: A Muslim Case for Liberty.”Now, Akyol said, more people are willing to challenge Ataturk’s precepts, and as a result, followers of his ideology, known as Kemalism, “are becoming more insecure and that sometimes makes them even more insistent about keeping the symbols.” Patients with chronic pain give advice One example of tension-tinged change came on May 19, the anniversary of the day in 1919 that is celebrated as the beginning of the Turkish fight for nationhood _ with Ataturk, who only later acquired that surname, at the center of the narrative. For the first time, the militarism of past celebrations was replaced with civilian events hailed by government officials as more inclusive. In Istanbul, a ceremony in front of a statue of Ataturk skipped the traditional moment of silence held in his honor and a band played the national anthem. Some onlookers were outraged, shouting: “We want respect for Ataturk.”Howard Eissenstat, an academic at St. Lawrence University in the United States who is working on a book about the roots of Turkish nationalism, said that some Turks distrust the ruling party for challenging “longstanding definitions of what being a Turk is.” He traced the start of this conflict to the 1950 election victory of an opposition group over a party founded by Ataturk, who died in 1938, in a process that accelerated with the opening up of the economy in the late 1980s.Eissenstat compared Turkey’s “cultural war” to what some American conservatives have called a “war on Christmas” _ recent disputes in the United States over whether Christmas should be observed as a secular or religious holiday in public settings. He also noted that the willingness of Turkish leaders to acknowledge official wrongdoing in a deadly bombing campaign aimed at crushing a Kurdish rebellion in the 1930s reflected an indirect way of tarnishing the reputation of Turkey’s premier historical hero.last_img
