Atom Egoyan: Life and His Cinema

from U.S.A.K. Blog

Prof. Dr. Sedat LAÇİNER

EARLY YEARS

Mr. Egoyan was born in 1960 in Cairo (Egypt) as the first child of Joseph and Shushan Yeghoyan. Then the family was in the furniture business. However, his parents were interested in arts.

Joseph Yeghoyan, in his youth, had studied painting in the Art Institute of Chicago. Sources say that the reason behind the family naming their first-born ‘Atom’ was the building of the first nuclear reactor in Egypt (Siobhan Rossiter, ‘Atom Egoyan’, Northern Stars,www.northernstars.ca/directorsal/egoyanbio.html; ‘All about Atom’, http:/members.cruzio.com/).

Eurozone slump derails Britain’s economic strategy

by Centre for European Reform
The British government’s attempt to rebalance the UK economy has failed. In 2012, the deficit on the country’s current account (the broadest measure of foreign trade) was larger than in any year since 1990. Britain’s problem is not its trade performance with non-European markets: exports to these are rising strongly and the country runs a small surplus with them. The UK’s problem is the weakness of its exports to the EU, and the huge trade deficit it runs with its EU partners. As the eurozone’s biggest trade partner, the UK is bearing the brunt of the eurozone’s neglect of domestic demand.

A new angle to UK-EU trade?

by Open Europe blog team
The WTO and the OECD yesterday announced the release of a new set of trade data. This data tries to pin down the “value added” from trade rather than just the gross figures. Essentially, this means the data tries to track where the final demand for an exported product/service comes from, thereby netting out trade which simply contributes to the production line of the finished good/service.

Dijital dünyada sağlık konusu hangi noktada, son gelişmeler nelerdir diyoruz ve nasıl yayıldığını inceliyoruz.
SosyalKafa’da bu akşam, Fil’m Hafızası ekibini bir kez daha misafir ediyoruz ve Fil’m@9 2013’teki kısa filmlerden, quiz showlardan, müzikten bahsedip bizleri nelerin beklediğini Sedef Olgaç ve Eda Önsel’den dinliyoruz. Bilgi Üniversitesi İletişim Yönetimi Bölümü Eğitim Asistanı ile dijital platformda sağlık iletişiminin bugununu ve yarınını konuşup, geçtiğimiz günlerde gerçekleşen HİZ Zirvesi’ni ve gelişmeleri kendisinden dinliyoruz. Üzerinde Güneş Batmayan Topluluk olarak adledilen Sırt Çantalılar’ın kurucularından Ömürden Sezgin ve Proje Yöneticisi Burak Sıraç ile geçen 5 yıldan bahsediyoruz ve onların 5. yılını beraber kutluyoruz.
SosyalKafa bu akşam saat 22.00’da BJK TV’de bizlerle buluşuyor.

Google’s approach to government requests for user data

from The Official Google Blog by A Googler
Today, January 28, is Data Privacy Day, when the world recognizes the importance of preserving your online privacy and security.

Typically this happens in connection with government investigations.
