If Erdogan were to run for President, he would be effectively taking a demotion from the all-powerful position as Prime Minister. And while Erdogan had tried to propose constitutional amendments to increase the powers of the Presidency, he has thus far been unable to endow the role with the power for him to play a musical chairs with the current President Gul in August.

Imagine a world without a George Orwell and The Road to Wigan Pier, without Katherine Boo and Behind the Beautiful Forevers, or without Óscar Martínez and The Beast. What if Britain, the United States, and El Salvador had silenced these radicals before they ever documented working class poverty, the economics of slum life, and the horror of migrant trails?

Canada has sanctioned some of these front organizations by designating them as terrorist organizations, depriving them of charitable status, or freezing their assets. But the Turkish-based IHH has managed to avoid a terrorist designation in North America -- a disconcerting fact that Canada would be wise to remedy.

Peter Hall

There's a sour seasonality that has become entrenched in recent global economics. In the past few years, summer has become a disarmingly punctual momentum-killer of global production. Perhaps the most critical question in EDC's Summer 2013 Global Export Forecast is whether we are in for yet another summer drubbing, or whether this is the year we break with that sorry tradition.

After three weeks of turmoil in Turkey, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan still appears to be reluctant to resolve the political conflict in Turkey. Rather, he has further provoked the protesters by his continued dismissive and authoritarian statements.

One of the great pleasures of life is kissing a man with a moustache. (Yes, you can quote me.) I am completely in luck because Istanbul is full of handsome men with moustaches -- not just any kind of moustache, but sexy ones. In fact, all of the facial hair here in Istanbul is süper sexy.

One afternoon, I decided to clear my mind and pay a brief visit to the Hagia Sophia, the monumental edifice in the ancient heart of the city. The "Holy Wisdom" is almost 1500 years old, and is -- at least in my amateur opinion -- the single greatest masterpiece of Byzantine architecture.

So the Cyprus story is more than just another profligate nation begging for help. This mess may force the unification of this island, and tapping of its resources, at long last for the betterment of all its citizens. It may stop the takeover of a nation inside the EU by Russian bad guys.

On Thursday over Skype, Babak, a human rights activist currently in Turkey, played me an interview he conducted with Haifa Mohammad Ali, a mother who had just discovered that Farnaz, her 10-year-old daughter, was murdered by Firouz, her husband. Haifa attempted to get help, but an intolerant translator told her story his way. By then it was too late.
