right-wing terrorism everywhere... racism, casteism, intolerance to religion and immigration ...Even though I find some very silly and dumb and also feel extremely angry occasionally, it's always pity more than anything...they don't know better...it's the work of the brain... I hope wise people work more and more to spread awareness and make their voices heard louder than the fools' ...High time for militant liberalism probably!

Striking off Istanbul from my To-Go list for now...my dreams of going to the Grand Bazaar are distant now...Will I ever see the color of my favorite Mediterranean Blue, the amazing architecture,interiors...thinking about the interesting stories from Vijay about Constantinople...its history and the magnificent Ottoman empire...reminiscing the fun watching Muhteşem Yüzyıl and learning Turkish words and spotting arabic influences...feeling like Hurrem hatun in my home i.e. my own Hagia Sophia, filled with Turkish artisan jewelry... beautiful kilims and colorful bespoke furniture from Istanbul...truth be told..terrorism and unstable politics do scare my unquenchable passion... :(

I wanted to visit Nice ever since I found the French fascinating...Every Bastille Day, I do think of its prominence and of course Marie Antoinette...and how amusing all the mentions of "Let them eat cake" has been over the years...We've spent a fair amount of time at the Vosges near Bastille too during our trip to Paris...So sad to see Nice, Bastille Day and terror in the same sentence...and the trail of tragedy is shocking... #PrayForNice Fight terrorism with education and awareness. We do need an open mind and empathy like never before...plus d'amour s'il vous plaît!!!

Boo to you terrorists haters and naysayers and bigoted people with graduate degrees but no true education ... who can't understand the natural life as it is...The best conversation(6 hours straight) I ever had in my life is with a stranger, a GAY person happily married with children...

Mr. Trump won the nomination and the Republicans’ brand in Silicon Valley fell through the floor. Though he runs a popular Twitter account, the New York businessman is widely seen as a tech ignoramus by people in the industry. Last year, in response to the threat posed by terrorists’ recruiting people online, Mr. Trump said he would enlist the Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to help him “close up” essential parts of the internet — an idea that was mocked as ridiculously unworkable. He also said he would force Apple to make iPhones in the United States, has threatened Amazon with an antitrust investigation and proposed boycotting Apple because of its standoff with the government over encryption — none of which won him friends in tech.

A bigger problem than Mr. Trump’s policy ideas was his tone. Though Silicon Valley has well-known problems with diversity in its work force, people here pride themselves on a kind of militant open-mindedness. It is the kind of place that will severely punish any deviations from accepted schools of thought — see how Brendan Eich, the former chief executive of Mozilla, was run out of his job after it became public that he had donated to a campaign opposed to gay marriage. Mr. Trump’s comments about immigrants, women and so many other groups have made him a kind of kryptonite in Silicon Valley.

The only way to treat/help people with mental illness("bad behavior") is to first try and understand how the brain works, anatomical facts...All we need is a little empathy.
Neuroscience is giving us new insights into people who abuse drugs and alcohol and new hope for their treatment.

I've been into World History very much over the past decade, thanks to Vijay for igniting the spark in me. I keep reading in Wikipedia about every reign/dynasty and Kings/Queens...I watched almost every series and every movie, especially based on English history. I don't get bored of Yorks, Lancasters and Tudors...nor Scots or French(the reason I enjoyed Paris) or Spanish or Turkish(recent interest) for that matter...Their true lives have been my favourite bed time stories all these years... Can't thank Vijay enough again..."Social Studies" doesn't scare me anymore!!!
No wonder I am addicted to #GoT  

The real genius of GRRM is acknowledging his inspirations. #Respect It's more about passion and perseverance than it is about any talent. Always.
