Ararat revealed a new crater

 

November 19, 2010 | 00:25

The Expert Group has found a new crater, probably formed millions of years ago at the top of Mount Ararat.

The discovery was made by two physicists, who somehow got access to that part of the mountain, which is a closed zone, writes «Technology Review», noting that Turkish authorities allow limited access to the northern and the western slope of the mountain.

Despite the current limitations, a scientist from the Yerevan Physics Institute, Vahe Gurzadyan and Sverre Aarseth, who holds an appointment at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, managed to investigate the area.
Panel presented a report on the discovery of an interesting, well-preserved crater at an altitude of 2,100 meters above sea level, at coordinates 39˚ 47´ 30´´N by 44˚ 14´ 40´´E.
Unfortunately the crater is not visible on“Google Earth”. However, the main question remains how the crater was formed. According to one version, the crater is a volcanic formation. But Gurzadyan and Aarseth believe that we can not exclude that the crater was caused by an impact.

The researchers published their results in the online journal arXiv order to generate interest in the scientific community. They hope that other professionals would also be interested in the study and classification of the crater.

Note that the crater was not the only discovery during their trip. Because the region is a closed zone, it is practically not been investigated.

What do you think, why do Turkish authorities allow just limited access to the northern and the western slope of the Ararat? Obviously, there are many interesting things to be discovered.

Sorry,

I really don´t know why. Maybe there were incidents in which so many people got lost there and found dead later. Maybe because of the terrorists.

Iverson plays first match in Turkey

Former NBA MVP scored 2 points in Turkish league debut.

Iverson plays first match in Turkey

Allen Iverson scored two points in his Turkish league debut Sunday as his new team Besiktaş Cola Turka lost 74-67 to defending champion Fenerbahçe Ülker.

Iverson missed three shots in the first quarter and was taken off with less than a minute left. He returned at the beginning of the second half but did not score until he sank a basket late in the third. He then returned to the bench for the rest of the game.

The win maintained Fenerbahçe´s perfect league record. It held a 40-35 half time lead and while Besiktaş closed the deficit and started the final quarter tied 53-53, it could not continue the comeback.

It was Besiktaş´ second loss in a week after a 94-91 defeat to Hemofarm Stada in the European Cup Tuesday, when Iverson scored 15 points on his debut.

Besiktaş handed out paper masks with a picture of Iverson to the fans before the game but their enthusiasm for the team´s new signing faded during the match.

Iverson, a former NBA MVP, spent 14 years in the league but was not offered a contract this season. The 11-time NBA All-Star then agreed to a $4 million, two-year contract with Besiktaş.

Iverson is 17th on the NBA´s career scoring list with 24,368 points with Philadelphia, Denver, Detroit and Memphis. He won the league´s Most Valuable Player award in 2001.

Some interesting views fom a Japanese guy (Ankara Ambassador Tanaka):

 

Aslında biz Japonlar statik insanlarız, siz Türkler ise dinamik insanlarsınız. Biz düşünüyoruz, siz düşünmüyorsunuz. Biz plan yapıyoruz ama harekete geçmiyoruz, siz ise plan yapmadan doğrudan harekete geçiyorsunuz. Türkler son dakika işlerini çok iyi yapıyor. En son Haliç Kongre Merkezi´nin yapımında buna şahit oldum. Prensimiz de açılışa gelecekti. Açılış öncesinde incelemek için gittiğimde her yer çok kötü durumdaydı, ancak açılış günü her şey mükemmeldi. Biz bunu düzensizlik olarak görüyoruz, ama Türklerin son dakikada her şeyi doğru yapabilme yeteneği var. Biz bunu yapamıyoruz.
Japonlar çok yavaş hareket eder, ama dinamik Türkler her yere gidiyor. Ülkemize gelip bizim iş adamlarımızı davet ettiler ve biz Toyota, Hyundai gibi yatırımları yaptık. Başta çok başarılı olmadı, ama daha sonra Türkiye´nin AB´ye üyelik müzakerelerinde olması nedeniyle Türkiye, Japon şirketleri için Avrupa´ya mal verebilecekleri bir merkez haline geldi. AB fırsatlarını kullanabildiler. Toyota, bana, Türkiye´de üretikleri arabaların en kaliteli üretimleri olduğunu söyledi. Türk iş gücü iyi eğitim aldığı zaman çok iyi işler çıkarabiliyor.´´


Translation:

Actually we Japanese are static people, while you Turks are dynamic. We think, you don´t. We make plans but don´t take action but you take actions without any planning. You are good at "last minute" things. Recently I witnessed it during the construction of Haliç congress center. Our prince was going to visit it during openning ceremony. It was terrible when I went there on the day before the ceremony. But on the openning day, everything was perfect. We consider it a chaos but Turks are skilled at doing the things well at the last minute. We cannot do such things. Japanese are slow movers while dynamic Turks are going everywhere. They came to our country and invited us for investment. We entered Turkie with Toyota, Hyundai, etc. Things were not going well at the beginning but there were opportunities due to the country´s EU prospect. Today Toyota tell me that Turkie is the production center of their best quality cars.

well at first i thought he was a racist but apparently he didnt mean any  harm. he acctually was praising the rise of turkish economy   his metaphor may not be widely appreciated. well he could have resembled the turks to bees and  and the markets to flowers. that would have been more appropriate.
