Looks like immortal Berlusconi is about to leave the government leaving behind huge debts that may bring italy to the same fate as that of greece.

The huge blast to the west of Tehran was felt in the capital. The authorities say it was an accident, denying suggestions that it was sabotage.

The American magazine Time believes differently. It spells out what Israeli media have hinted at: that this was the work of Israel’s secret service.

Watching news.

Wars, demonstrations, floods, quakes, economic crisis, etc. 

watching news drives you into depression.

Hiddink left Turkey.

Turks were commenting that his mentality is not compatible to Turks´ and that he is from north therefore he wouldnt be able to work with teams from Spain, Italy or Greece.

However, he worked with Russia and South Korea, leading them to semi-finals.  {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

The acropolis in İzmir’s Pergamum ancient city, which is located up a 330-meter hill, is drawing more tourists since transportation has been made easier with the construction of a cable car. 

Acropolis Cable Car A.Ş. Facility Director Serdal Sarı said transportation to the acropolis had been provided through a very narrow and dangerous road and tour busses damaged the ancient area, but thanks to the construction of the cable car, 220,000 people had visited the acropolis in one year. 

He said the cable car began to serve in October 2010 and interest in the acropolis increased to a great extent since then. “Eighty percent of tourists prefer the cable car to see the acropolis and they reach the ruins by seeing the view of Pergamum. The main purpose of the cable car facility is to preserve the acropolis ruins. We observe that tourists enjoy the travel while reaching the acropolis. The uncomfortable and dangerous travel ended thanks to the facility,” he said. 

Sarı said some travel companies had reacted against the new transportation when the cable car opened to the public. “But we have solved the problem after a short time and have good communication now.”
Sarı said the cable car cost nearly 12 million Turkish Liras. “We have increased the number of cabins from nine to 15 due to great demand,” he concluded.

 Wonderful! also, anyone in Berlin MUST visit the Pergamon panorama exhibition. It is an amazing reproduction of what Bergama was like 1900 years ago.
