The way forward

first_imgCooperation and inclusiveness were the main messages Ahmet Davutoglu, minister of foreign affairs of the Republic of Turkey, delivered Tuesday night (Sept. 28) at a packed Harvard Kennedy School forum.Davutoglu, who holds a doctorate in political science, spoke as part of the Kokkalis Program on Southeastern and East-Central Europe. He has been credited with helping to transform his country into a major player on the international stage and an increasingly important bridge between East and West.He began by recalling Francis Fukuyama’s famous prediction that the end of the Cold War was “the end of history.”“History will find its own way,” said Davutoglu, adding that the Cold War was an aberration and that we are now entering a period of the “normalization of history” — and the first time the world is experiencing globalization, while still contending with strong regional forces. “Each of us, we are representing humanity here,” he said, “not individual nationalities.”He outlined the six principles he declared in 2004 as critical to the future of Turkey.First, he said, there must be a balance between security and freedom.Second, the country must seek to have “zero problems with our neighbors.”“I know it is impossible to have zero problems, even with brothers and sisters,” he conceded. But positing the concept will help to alter the vision of Turkey that most of its people grew up with. “In school I was told we have the sea on three sides and enemies on four sides,” he said. “Psychologically healthy people … cannot function” believing that everyone is the enemy.Third, Turkey has lifted its borders and is now allowing free movement of its citizens — along with those of its neighbors — back and forth between countries. “It’s [the] best way to peace,” said Davutoglu.Fourth, “we cannot identify Turkey with one geographical region,” he said. Whatever happens in neighboring countries affects Turkey, not only geopolitically but domestically as well, since it has become a nation of immigrants. “We need to use our soft power,” he said, “because it’s directly related to our domestic interest.”Fifth, the country seeks to develop strategic alliances with the United States, Europe, and Russia, and become more active in international organizations.Finally, he said, in the future Turkey will “be [a] dynamic force in trans-Atlantic alliance,” rather than just a “passive follower.”During the question-and-answer period, Davutoglu fielded a query about how domestic public opinion shapes his views of foreign policy: “This is the result of democracy,” he said. “We have to accept sometimes positive, sometimes negative public opinion.” He also answered how his country is dealing with Armenia, with which it has traditionally had strained relations: He proposed a “new Caucasia based on mutual respect, integrity, and coexistence,” and vowed that Turkey is “ready to discuss” and listen. The two nations started a negotiation process in Switzerland in 2007, he said, adding that “Armenian-Turkish ties are settled in the world, in Boston, California, Paris, and elsewhere where Armenians and Turks live side by side.”Davutoglu’s most impassioned moments of the evening came when he was asked about Israeli-Palestinian relations. “We can work with anybody if that party is willing to accept a vision of peace,” he said. “Palestinians have suffered enough. Today in Gaza 1.5 million people are living in an open prison. People are living in a concentrated manner and you are attacking from the air. This is not acceptable. We need solidarity of the international community. … If we think some countries have more rights than others, then it is difficult to achieve peace.”last_img read more

Time to Can

first_imgCanning season is here and, even if you haven’t harvested your backyard tomatoes or okra yet, it’s time to get ready.Before you begin canning, check your equipment and supplies. Your equipment should be in good, working condition to ensure that your canned goods will remain safe to eat after canning.  “Nothing’s worse than getting your fruit and veggies prepped and ready to can, then finding out you need more equipment or containers or you need to replace canner parts,” said Elizabeth Andress, author of the canning bible “So Easy to Preserve” and director of the National Center for Home Food Preservation at the University of Georgia. “A brief check of your tools before you begin to harvest will ensure you can you put up your harvest at its peak freshness.”Check that canner.If you’re canning low-acid vegetables, such as green beans, greens or okra, you’ll need a pressure canner. Be sure to check a dial gauge for accuracy. Learn more by contacting your local UGA Extension office. If your canner has a rubber gasket, make sure the rubber is flexible and soft, not cracked, brittle or sticky. Also, make sure that any pipes and vent ports are clean and clear.UGA Extension recommends avoiding electric multicookers. Instead, use standard stovetop pressure canners, which are made specifically for pressure canning.  For fruits, pickles, jellies and jams, use a boiling water canner. This type of canner should be deep enough to allow 1-2 inches of water to boil over the tops of your jars and should have a ventilated rack in the bottom to hold the jars.  Round up jars and lids.Make sure your jars are free of any cracks, nicks or chips and be sure to check the top sealing edge as they can prevent lids from sealing properly. Survey your jars to determine if you need to invest in new ones. Old jars weaken over time and can even shatter under heat and pressure. Therefore, investing in new jars is the wisest long-term investment. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends two-part self-sealing lids, and the flat lid should be replaced every year. Rings can be reused from year to year but need to be checked to ensure that they haven’t corroded or warped. Finally, make sure that your kitchen is ready and that you prewash your jars before you start processing your produce. Some procedures for jellies and pickles also call for sterilizing jars. The directions for each food will indicate whether sterilizing jars are necessary.Your kitchen work surfaces should be clean and sanitary, as should all bowls, pots, pans, measuring cups and other tools. Move items that are unnecessary for your preserving activities out of the way. Safe, efficient preserving should be done without distractions or unrelated items in your way.Prepare your freezer.For many vegetables and fruits, freezing may be an easier option than canning your harvest. If you plan on freezing, consider cleaning out your freezer now. You don’t want a half-empty box of forgotten waffles or years-old, freezer-burned meat taking up space that could be filled by fresh-packed, in-season strawberries. Gather your containers. Plastic, zip-close bags are good options as are plastic containers or canning jars that are labeled as freezer-safe. Glass jars that were not manufactured for canning and cardboard milk cartons are not recommended. Get trustworthy instructions.Finally, make sure you have the most up-to-date canning instructions from UGA Cooperative Extension or USDA. Andress encourages caution when taking canning advice or recipes from friends or family and historical publications or websites.Old canning practices have led to foodborne illnesses, such as botulism, in the past. A copy of the most recent UGA Extension instructions and many research-based food preservation techniques and recipes can be found at the National Center for Home Food Preservation website, managed by UGA Extension, at read more

Odoh Threatens to Sue Airline for E/Guinea Open Struggle

first_imgNigeria’s leading professional golfer, Andrew Oche Odoh has threatened to sue South African Airways for his disappointing play at the ongoing 3e Actuaries Equatorial Guinea Open in Mongomo.Odoh has heavy odds stacked against him in his bid to successfully defend the tournament, despite shooting a six under par 66 last night which left him 10 strokes outside the lead after 54 holes.The player, a member of South Africa based Sunshine Tour, said the non-arrival of his golf bag made him to resort to borrowing an unfamiliar set of clubs from local amateur golfers in Mongomo. He told THISDAY last night that he would be left with no option than to ask for a compensation of $24,000 from South African Airlines being the value of the Equatorial Guinea Open winning prize money.‘’The failure of the airline to deliver a golf bag containing my Titlist set clubs to the agreed destination, made me recourse to borrowing a wrong set of clubs, and this why I have not matched expectations in Mongomo. It is a clear of breach of contract and I will be demanding compensation that equals the exact prize to be won by the winner of Equatorial Guinea Open Golf Championship. The alternative clubs are made for amateur and not professional golfers,” Odoh threatened.It was gathered that the golf bag was only delivered in Abuja, instead of Lagos, where Odoh joined the Nigerian contingent that flew to Malabo enroute Doula on Monday.Odoh, who was on the verge of missing the cut after two poor rounds of 78 and 75, rebounded at the Presidential Golf Course, Mongomo, to occupy the 15th position and will be in the 31 players field that will compete the final round today.Englishman Craig Hinton, took the lead in sterling fashion, with a course record round of seven under par 65 to take two shots lead over Zambian Zambian Muthiya Madalitso and Swede Peter Gustafsson, who are for tied for second place.Hinton drained five birdies on the back, including a chip in on the last hole for a 31 on the home bound play, and an overall 10 under par for the tournament.Mandhu Mohammed of Zimbabwe occupied the fourth position at 4 under par to stay in touch with the leaders, following a round of 71 mixed with four birdies and three bogies.Six of the eight Nigerians that entered for the tournament made the cut.They include Gift Willy (+2 over par), Odoh, Michael Ubi, Sunday Olapade, Mohammed K. Haruna and Francis Christopher. Kamilu Bako and Morgan Atako missed the cut.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
