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.

CUMHURİYET VE KADIN

Sermin ÖZCİLİNGİR’in, Başkan, Amerika-Türk Kadınlar Birliği | ATKB; “Cumhuriyete Doğru” programında, Salvation Army International Commission on Social Justice, New York’ta 29 Ekim 2019 Salı günü sunmuş olduğu konuşma metnini, etkinliğin içeriğini ilgilisine ulaştırmak amacıyla aşağıda yayınlıyoruz.
– TurkishLibrary.Us

Cumhuriyet idaresinin ilk yılları, 1923’te nüfus sayımında kadınlarında sayılması, 1924 seçme ve seçilme hakları reddedilmişti. Atatürk çok istese de bu yıllarda, Türkiye Büyük Millet Meclisi’nin kabul etmediği kadın haklarının zamanlamasının, o ilk yıllar için çok da uygun olmadığını gördü.
2 yılı daha bekliyecekti.”

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.

HOW TO PROTECT INDEPENDENT SCIENCE AND ENSURE OUR INNOVATIONS ARE IN TUNE WITH OUR HEALTH AND HUMAN RIGHTS? A Necessity for Free and Healthy Communities

“A free and unbiased science is essential for resilient and sustainable cities.  Otherwise, business plans will become entrenched in untested technologies, which it will become too difficult and unwieldy to back away from.  We will have become a highly inflexible and un-resilient, and secretive, society.”
