Kaczyński and Erdogan must have been reading the same book, which I think is "1984".

This is how you reverse enlightenment and collapse a society in onto itself.

“I’ve seen all the vile and bloody periods in our history,” she said. “But I’ve never seen so much hatred between ordinary citizens.”

As well as announcing the four newly discovered elements here +The Guardian​ does an excellent edit to the original piece:

"• This article was amended on 4 January 2016. The reference to the new elements being “manmade” was changed to “synthetic” to follow Guardian style guidance on the use of gender-neutral terms.'

How super cool.
Discovery of four super-heavy chemical elements by scientists in Russia, America and Japan has been verified by experts and formally added to table

Turkish PM: "ISIS' and our interpretation of Islam are not just 180°, but 360° apart".

Democracy without education is a torturous catastrophy.

Absolutely amazing. Must see for kids and adults who are interested in histories of vehicles. This museum has an impressive collection of vehicles and machinery. It also has an outdoor area where you get to climb up a real plane. If you are going with kids, they also let you borrow a pushchair for the little ones.

Nice atmosphere and a very friendly staff. They also have a playground out in the back for the kids. The beer garden is very nice in the dry season. I find the food to be a bit pricey, but good all around.

All of Roger, John Cuong and Izzy were extremely good instructors, and I enjoyed doing the archery with them. The venue can get a touch chilly, but overall really a good experience!

The food is amazing. Just plan amazing. If you thought the corner kebab shops were a good representatin of Kebab from Turkey, this place will knock your socks off with the taste and variety they offer. I held back two stars for the internal decoration, which is dating rapidly and seems a bit neglected.
