Jason Ditz, senior editor of Antiwar.com, joins the show to provide an update on what's been happening in Iraq. They start with a look at Iraqi politics. An election was held in October, but the numerous factions have hit a wall in their attempt to form a government. That being said, Ditz does not think anyone is inclined to unilaterally seize power any time soon. Next, they turn to the recent Turkish offensive against the PKK in northern Iraq. Turkey claims they have the support of Iraqi officials, yet those same officials quickly came out against the campaign. Lastly, they touch on some intra-Shi'ite violence concerning gravesites that Ditz has been reporting on at Antiwar.com.      NOTE: After recording the above episode, Iraq's political situation continues to deteriorate with Sadr now ruling out a consensus government. Read Jason Ditz's latest on the situation here. Discussed on the show: “Tensions Lead to Iraq Intra-Shi'ite Violence” (Antiwar.com) news.antiwar.com  Jason Ditz is senior editor of Antiwar.com.

Sweden has announced its intent to apply for NATO membership in an historic break with its neutral security policy in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. And Turkey is closely watching Pennsylvania's Senate race as Dr. Mehmet Oz, a dual Turkish and US citizen, edges ahead in recent polls for the state's Republican primary on Tuesday. Opponents accuse the TV-doctor-turned-politician of conflicting loyalties. Plus, the mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, over the weekend is not simply a domestic phenomenon. A growing, global network of extremists online played an important role in the shooter's radicalization.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1904 Birth of Salvador Dalí, Spanish surrealist artist. Educated in Madrid, Salvador was a son of Catalonia, and he never lost his love for the beauty of his homeland. Early in his career, Salvador gravitated toward surrealism. By 1929, Salvador Dali was regarded as a leading figure in the art form.  Like Sigmund Freud, Salvador Dalí used the landscape to metaphor the human mind. He once said about the coastline of his beloved Catalonia, I personify the living core of this landscape. Today, two museums are devoted to Salvador Dalí's work: the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. And in 2020, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida, presented Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind. The exhibit's centerpiece was Flordalí, a fantastically-colored series of flower lithographs from 1968. In Flordali, Salvador created imaginary surrealist enhancements to favorite blossoms. He made Dahlia unicorns, which feature a twisted horn in the middle of the bloom.  Lilium musicum has vinyl records and sheet music for petals. Pisum sensuale is a sensory plant with fingers with painted nails and voluptuous lips. Panseé (Viola cogitans) is a self-portrait with pansies for the eyes and mouth.    1907 On this day, the American botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton was in Nantucket preparing for a lecture on plant protection. Nathaniel had brought along fifty colored lantern slides from the Van Brunt collection to use in his presentation. Nathaniel and his wife co-founded the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, New York.  Nathaniel's time in Nantucket was brief - only for a day - but he wrote these observations in a letter about his trip. [On Nantucket] The mayflower is the most abundant of spring wildflowers, carpeting the moors on the south side of the island and lending a rich, spicy fragrance to the ocean breezes that sweep over these exposed tracts. It is in less danger from picking than from the surface fires, which are common occurrences in spring.  The later blooming wildflowers suffer more or less at the hands of summer tourists, but I was glad to observe that the residents of Nantucket as a whole are keenly alive to the importance of preserving the natural beauties of the island and carefully guard the localities for many rare plants, especially the Scotch heather and the two European heaths (Erica cinerea and E. tetralix) which occur there.   1923 On this day, a schoolyard garden reported outside of Lochness gave the following update, As sheep are constantly breaking into the garden work has been stopped till the walls are rendered sheep-proof.   This little entry was discovered by the modern-day owner of the property Katharine Stewart, and she shared it in her delightful month by month garden book called A Garden in the Hills (2006).  Katharine reflected on the journal entry regarding the sheep and wrote, I know exactly what he meant. More than sixty years later, the sheep, the more agile variety, are still sometimes managing to leap over the wall, where the superimposed netting has given way. That can mean goodbye to all the summer lettuce and the winter greens, not to mention the precious flowering plants and all the work that went into producing them.   The little school in the Scottish highlands closed in 1958. A few years later, Katharine and her husband, Sam, bought the property known as the croft at Abriachan near Loch Ness. There, Katharine began her writing. Reflecting on her first days in the garden at the croft, Katharine wrote, When we arrived, wild raspberries, willowherb, and sweet cicely had largely taken over. To bees and butterflies and to many kinds of birds, this was paradise! For us, it held all the thrill of uncharted territory. Every day a fresh discovery was made. Even now, I come on surprises each summer. Digging [has] revealed many other interesting things-worn-out toys, pieces of pottery, a pile of school slates from a dump against the top wall, evidently discarded when jotters came in-and, most interesting of all, several 'scrapers' dating from prehistoric times.  Meanwhile, I often imagine my predecessors here looking on the same outline of hills, the same scoop of the burn in the hollow, listening to the same sounds of lark and owl, the bark of deer, and many more long gone-the howl of wolf, maybe the growl of bear. The heather would have been their late summer delight, making drinks of tea or ale, thatching for their roofs, and kindling for their fires.  Sometimes envy them the simplicity of their lives, though the hardships must have been great. They didn't have a Christmas to celebrate, but they knew all about the winter solstice, and they must have been happy to see the bright berries on the holly, as we do today.   Late in life, Katharine Stewart went on to become a teacher and then her town's postmistress. She died in 2013 and is survived by her daughter, Hilda.   1940 Birth of Margaret Visser, South African-born writer, and broadcaster who lives in Toronto, Paris, and southwest France. Margaret writes about history and anthropology and the mythology of everyday life. She once wrote, Salt is the only rock directly consumed by man.  It corrodes but preserves, desiccates but is wrested from the water. It has fascinated man for thousands of years not only as a substance he prized and was willing to labour to obtain but also as a generator of poetic and of mythic meaning. The contradictions it embodies only intensify its power and its links with experience of the sacred.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Little Library Cookbook by Kate Young This book came out in 2018, and the British food writer and author Bee Wilson gushed, What a joy this is for hungry readers everywhere: stylish, fun, and clever. If there is comfort food, there is also comfort reading, and The Little Library Cookbook is it. The publisher writes, Would you like to taste Paddington Bear's marmalade? Or a clam chowder from Moby Dick?

Kate Young was inspired to write this book based on her amazing food blog called The Little Library Café. In The Little Library Cookbook, Kate offers over 100 recipes inspired by beloved works of fiction. There are dishes from classics and contemporary bestsellers with stories for people of any age. Among many others, you will find Turkish delight from Narnia, Mint Juleps from The Great Gatsby, Bread and Butter Pudding from Atonement, Curried Chicken from Sherlock Holmes,  Pancakes from Pippi Longstocking, Coconut Shortbread by Sarah Perry's The Essex Serpent,  Black Ice Cream from The Hundred and One Dalmations, Cinnamon Rolls from Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, Spaghetti and Meatballs from The Godfather, Apple Pie from The Railway Children, and Honey Rosemary Tea Cakes inspired by Winnie the Pooh.

Newspapers said that during a severe hailstorm, a six-inch-by-eight-inch gopher turtle, fell to the ground, completely encased in ice, at Bovina, which is located about seven miles east of Vicksburg in western Mississippi.    Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Turkey is becoming a prime destination for Russians seeking to escape crackdowns by President Vladimir Putin and the effects of global economic sanctions. Turkey remains one of the few countries where Russian airplanes can fly, and where Russian passport holders can enter without visas. Andre, not his real name, makes a cup of his favorite Russian tea for his Turkish hosts. Sipping the strong black brew offers a "taste of home, he says. Andre fled to Istanbul last month as rumours spread of nationwide conscription.  "When I received the news that there might be conscription, I had just two hours to take my things and go," he explains. "I know people are trying to leave Russia; police started to talk with them; 'why are you going'?" Andre says with Russia becoming a country of fear for those who oppose the war in Ukraine, there is now a growing exodus. "A lot of people left Russia; people who cannot leave are just silenced somehow. I know friends who just wrote something on their social media and police came to their houses. "My friends are careful, and most of them have already left Russia, But I know that there are situations where police stop on them the streets and check their phones. It's just a nervous situation for all of us." Popular city Istanbul is an increasingly popular destination for those escaping Putin's Russia. "I chose Istanbul because it's not so far. I already knew something about this city," Andre explains. "Istanbul has similar prices as in Russia, and I have connections here ... I can hear the Russian language everywhere." Istanbul has historical ties with Russia and a long tradition of hosting Russians escaping their country's turmoil. In the Karakoy district, Russian orthodox churches are a common sight. And one of the city's oldest and most prestigious restaurants was founded by refugees from the Bolshevik revolution. Uncertain fate of Turkish drones, a prominent symbol of Ukrainian resistance Today, Turkey is one of the few remaining countries where Russian planes can fly to. It also offers visa-free travel. That also makes it a popular destination for Russians seeking a way into EU countries. This Russian exile, who also declined to give his name, says he left just in time. "I read the news, and I think that the borders will be closed. I think it's the last chance to move," he said. "You can easily come to Europe from Russia. You just firstly go to Istanbul and then to Europe. I have met many Russians here many friends of mine are in other countries. They just traveled and decided not to go back." Properties Many Russians are now buying properties in Turkey. That allows them to secure their savings and even Turkish citizenship for themselves and their family. "For citizenship, via investment program, you can buy like one or two properties, depending on your budget, but it should be fitting to 250 thousand dollars," explains Alex Cihanoglu, a real estate agent at the Istanbul-based Property Istanbul. Istanbul is witnessing a property boom, says Cihanoglu, given that Turkey is uniquely placed for Russians seeking a way out. "Nowadays, there are only five countries to which Russians can travel, and one of them is Turkey," said Cihanoglu. Ankara earns new friends thanks to efforts to end Ukraine war Even Russia's exclusion from the SWIFT money transfer system is not proving an obstacle to buying property here. "There are a lot of people stuck with transferring money," said Cihanoglu, "But there is always, especially cryptocurrency is one of the best ways to move their money to Turkey. So, of course, it's a big destination where people want to park their money." European dream But Andre has no plans to settle in Istanbul, even if he had the funds to buy a home. Instead, he says he plans to move on to Europe and establish a new life there, but his thoughts are with the family and country he left behind.

"Actually, I want to take them from Russia, but I don't know I will be able to do it or have just hope Russia can change in the next five or ten years. I cannot imagine how long it takes; it already looks like the bad years of the USSR. For me, it's like the death of Russia." But for now, Andre spends his time in Istanbul counting on the support of locals and a growing network of Russians for whom Turkey has become a refuge.

This week the EU proposed the toughest package of sanctions yet against Russia for its war in Ukraine, including an embargo on Russian oil. However, some member states are worried about the impact on their own economies, and the EU has had to tweak its sanctions plan in a bid to win them over.

Oil giant BP booked bumper underlying profits despite a big loss on its exit from Russia. We explore whether oil firms are likely to face windfall taxes on their profits, after Italy increased such a tax, with Dr Sandy Hager, a political economist at City, University of London. Leaked documents in the US have suggested the Supreme Court could be heading towards revoking the historic Roe vs Wade judgement from the 1970s that legalised abortion in the country. Just prior to that news and the political outcry that's followed, Amazon has more quietly told staff it would contribute up to $4,000 in travel expenses for employees seeking to get abortions, as well as certain other treatments. The move will help workers in states like Texas where most abortions have now been illegalised.

Full Text of ReadingsSaturday of the Second Week of Easter Lectionary: 272All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Pius VThis is the pope whose job it was to implement the historic Council of Trent. If we think popes had difficulties in implementing Vatican Council II, Pius V had even greater problems after Trent four centuries earlier. During his papacy (1566-1572), Pius V was faced with the almost overwhelming responsibility of getting a shattered and scattered Church back on its feet. The family of God had been shaken by corruption, by the Reformation, by the constant threat of Turkish invasion, and by the bloody bickering of the young nation-states. In 1545, a previous pope convened the Council of Trent in an attempt to deal with all these pressing problems. Off and on over 18 years, the Fathers of the Church discussed, condemned, affirmed, and decided upon a course of action. The Council closed in 1563. Pius V was elected in 1566 and charged with the task of implementing the sweeping reforms called for by the Council. He ordered the founding of seminaries for the proper training of priests. He published a new missal, a new breviary, a new catechism, and established the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine classes for the young. Pius zealously enforced legislation against abuses in the Church. He patiently served the sick and the poor by building hospitals, providing food for the hungry, and giving money customarily used for the papal banquets to poor Roman converts. His decision to keep wearing his Dominican habit led to the custom–to this day–of the pope wearing a white cassock. In striving to reform both Church and state, Pius encountered vehement opposition from England's Queen Elizabeth and the Roman Emperor Maximilian II. Problems in France and in the Netherlands also hindered Pius's hopes for a Europe united against the Turks. Only at the last minute was he able to organize a fleet which won a decisive victory in the Gulf of Lepanto, off Greece, on October 7, 1571. Pius' ceaseless papal quest for a renewal of the Church was grounded in his personal life as a Dominican friar. He spent long hours with his God in prayer, fasted rigorously, deprived himself of many customary papal luxuries, and faithfully observed the spirit of the Dominican Rule that he had professed. Reflection In their personal lives and in their actions as popes, Saint Pius V and Saint Paul VI both led the family of God in the process of interiorizing and implementing the new birth called for by the Spirit in major Councils. With zeal and patience, Pius and Paul pursued the changes urged by the Council Fathers. Like Pius and Paul, we too are called to constant change of heart and life.

Ama yaşadığı birtakım tökezlemelerin hikayesini, AB ile aralarındaki düelloyu ve en sonda da Türkiye'ye uygulanabilecek dersleri konuşacağız.Duyuru: Safsatalar Ansiklopedisi Kısaltılmış Edisyon çıktı!Bölümler:(00:05) Bir hobi olarak protesto ve Internet vergisi(03:15) Bugünün özeti(04:00) İlliberal demokrasi konuşması(04:55) Fareed Zakaria: Foreign Affairs(05:50) Rekabetçi otoriteryenizm(06:25) Demokrasi Endeksi(07:05) Freedom House Özgürlük Raporu(08:25) Liberal demokrasinin üç şartı(11:35) Ulus devlet esası(11:55) Çokkültürlülüğün reddi(12:15) Geleneksel Aile(13:55) Gürman ile Demokrasilerin Geleceği Üstüne(14:40) Halk demokrasiden ne anlıyor, ne bekliyor(17:25) İç siyasette puan için kolay hedef Brüksel(19:55) 2015 Mülteci Krizi(25:05) Soros: Public Enemy No 1(26:55) AB'nin Mülteci Kampı Türkiye(27:45) CEU out, Fudan in(29:15) Stop Soros Kanunu(30:05) Çoğunluk halen AB yanlısı(30:55) Türk Konseyine üyelik(32:00) Rusların Dışişleri'ni yıllarca hacklemesi(34:10) 2019 Belediye seçimlerinde muhalefet zaferi(36:50) İlk altılı ittifak(40:05) Visegrad Dörtlüsü(42:05) Siyasi kariyerleri bir türlü ölmeyen zombiler(44:15) Öngörülemeyen değişken: Savaş(46:30) Referandum(48:00) İttifaklarda aritmetik hesabı tutmaz(50:05) Seçim zaferi sadece ilk raunddur(50:50) Macaristanın farkları(52:35) Serinin Özeti(53:30) Patreon teşekkürleri.KaynaklarMakale: Illiberal Democracy in HungaryMakale: What is going on in HungaryKPGM Macaristan büyüme raporuHaber: AB Hukukun üstünlüğü ve fon kısmaHaber: Soros komplosuRapor: Rusların Macarları hacklemesiRapor: Yeni anayasanın hukukun üstünlüğüne etkileriMakale: 2019 belediye seçimleriMakale: 2022 önseçimleri ve seçimlerSponsorlar:..Bu podcast, Decathlon hakkında reklam içerir.Decathlon Mayfest kapsamında 5 büyük şehirde gerçekleşecek olan (İstanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Bursa ve Antalya'da) ücretsiz ve sürpriz ödüllerle dolu spor etkinliklerine ev sahipliği yapıyor.

This week a Turkish court condemned Turkish philanthropist and civic leader Osman Kavala to life in prison, a verdict that's been described as a “travesty of justice.” The State Department also chimed in, expressing its deep concern. Its statement only mentioned Osman Kavala, however, failing to call out Turkey for upending the lives of the other defendants, including Professor Henri Barkey, a US citizen and former State Department employee. Merve Tahiroglu and Henri Barkey join our host Thanos Davelis to discuss this verdict, the US response, and its potential impact on Turkey's relations with the West.Merve Tahiroglu is the Turkey program coordinator at the Project on Middle East Democracy.Henri Barkey is the Cohen Professor of International Relations at Lehigh University and an adjunct senior fellow for Middle East studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.Read Henri Barkey's op-ed in The Atlantic on this case: Erdoğan's War on TruthRead POMED's Joint Statement on the verdict: Turkey's Gezi Trial Verdict a Travesty of JusticeYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here:US State Department on Turkey's conviction of Osman KavalaGreece to pay Gazprom end-May, help Bulgaria after Russia cuts gas supplyGreece files demarche over Turkish F-16 violations
