“2020 YILINDA UZAYA ÇIKACAĞIZ DEDİLER KAPININ ÖNÜNE ÇIKAMIYORUZ…!”

DÜNYADA HERKES EKONOMİ ÇALIŞMIŞTI SORU BİYOLOJİDEN GELDİ..!
BİZİ EVE TIKADI KENDİ DÜNYAYI TURLUYO!!
Bu sezonun İnternette dolaşan en popular” ürünleri” bunlar..! Yaratıcı zekanın ve belki de karamsarlığa kapılmamanın çaresi olarak gülümsemelik iksirler dolanıyor sosyal medyada..

New York’un banliyosünde, Long Island’ın tenha sokaklarından sessizlik yankılanırmıydı hiç..arabaların vızır vızır sabah trafiğinde İstanbulu aratmadığı LIE yani 495 numaralı otoban böylesi bisiklet veya yürüyüş bandı moduna dönüşürmüydü!..
AVM’lerde kilit, restoranlarda kapalıyız ve kaç gün bilmiyoruz yazıları ..bankalar insansız ve maskeli balo gibi, insanın insanı sadece gözlerinden tanımaya çalıştığı, dokunmasız değmesiz ve uzak..yalnızlık gibi tenha …küçük kuvözlerimizde dünyaya sadece sanal alemden çay veya ‘happy hour‘ partileriyle tutunuyor olabilirmiydik?

Introduction & Definition: J.U.C. MEDIA, RESEARCH AND WRITING, and potential SCHOLARSHIP

“Even though my hopes for his physical existence, intellect, and potential faded out, I am holding on to the hope he gave me at the age of 7.
I am still inspired by him, through his words, both written in paper and in my mind, that from this point on, I will NOT only focus on him, and/or on keeping my hope and love alive for my older son and grand-children, but also on expanding that hope and love from the borders of my immediate family to underprivileged children, kids and youth, to a global family.

In Loving Memory of J.U.C
HOW THE IDEA OF “J.U.C. MEDIA, RESEARCH & WRITING AWARDS” (“J.U.C. M-R-W-A”) TOOK PLACE IN HIS MEMORIAL CARD ON DEC. 30, 2019

THE U.S. PEOPLE ARE CONFLICTED ABOUT WHAT HATE SPEECH IS.

75th COMMEMORATIVE ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ

Sevgin OKTAY, Representative of The Light Millennium to the United Nations Department of Global Communications
We know that Hate speech is speech that attacks a person or a group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.  The U.S. Supreme Court on the other hand has repeatedly ruled that hate speech is legally protected free speech under the First Amendment and therefore, Hate speech in the United States is not regulated, “in contrast to that of most other liberal democracies,” as noted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres.

MAHATMA GANDHI AND THE SCULPTOR

British Prime Minister David Cameron unveils Mahatma Gandhi statue in London. Photo: ©British Crown copyright/Arron Hoare.
– A personal view by Harvey TORDOFF
“Bearing in mind he was a thorn in the flesh of the British Government during most of his life it says a great deal about his legacy that he has been honoured in sight of Parliament and says a lot about Britain that they should place his sculpture where it is.”

INVITE: “IN A GENTLE WAY, YOU CAN SHAKE THE WORLD” MAHATMA GANDHI ~ THE MAN OF MILLENNIUM

“In a Gentle Way You Can Shake the World” was deliberately chosen as a sub-title. It refers to his historical backdrop along with Gandhi’s belief in humanity at large, which applies even very much in present and future times to achieve global sustainable culture of peace in a “Gentle Way” yet “can shake the world” and change in a positive direction.  150 years have passed since his birth and 61 years since his assassination, yet world’s conditions, conflicts and wars are much harsher and tragic now than Gandhi’s lifetime or 20th century at large. Gandhi believed in inner peace, global peace and unity for all.
