HDP Co-Chair Yüksekdağ has noted; what is naked today is not the body of a woman whom they have slaughtered but the very understanding of the government of war itself.

    How Erdoğan Weakens Turkey

    Five years ago, when the so-called Arab Spring erupted, Turkey – which had just been humiliated by the EU after years of accession talks – saw an opportunity to recover its pride: it would help to reshape a Middle East in turmoil. But things have not exactly unfolded as planned.

    President Erdoğan in response to Arınç’s words that “I know the President was informed” said, “Alleging that it was done by my permission is not an honest move”.

    The causes of selfie-related fatalities

    The most common way to die from taking a selfie is falling from a heights, followed by drowning. From Priceonomics:

    Snapchat announced two significant updates last few weeks, both focused on the same goal, though their low-key nature may belie the actual significance of the announcements themselves.

    How Prevalent Is Anti-Semitism on Social Media? (Report)

    The Online Hate Prevention Institute tracked more than 2,000 anti-Semitic social network posts over 10 months and found that only 20 percent of them were removed.

    The OHPI prepared a new report for the Global Forum to Combat Antisemitism, and its findings included:

    Google+: Worth It or a Waste of Time?

    With Facebook’s announcement that their user base reached 1.5 billion people, Twitter’s efforts to revitalize their audience, and Snapchat and Instagram’s rise to social media dominance, we’re left scratching our heads as to where Google+ fits into the mix.

    Bring technologists and members of the intelligence community together to figure out what to do about unbreakable encryption and guess what they conclude?

    They conclude that they don’t really need to worry about it.

    EFD Haftanın Web Projesi: Mecliste (@meclisteorg_)

    In Uncategorized on February 11, 2016 at 13:11



    Mecliste Hakkında, kendileri için çıkan yasaları doğru bilgilerle ve bütün bakış açılarıyla tartışmak isteyenlerin Türkiye’de ilk kez buluşacağı bir platformdur.

    Yasalar teknik ve karmaşık bir dille hazırlanır; Meclis gündemini, Genel Kurul oturumları haricinde takip etmek zordur. Bu karmaşık gibi gözüken yasa yapım sürecinin, kuralları, aktörleri ve gündemi vardır. Ancak bu yasaların hepsi, nasıl bir eğitim alacağımızdan, güvenliğimizin kimler tarafından nasıl sağlanacağına; çevre ile ilgili düzenlemelerden, evlenip boşanmamıza kadar günlük hayatımızı belirler.

    İşte, Mecliste olarak bizim amacımız, gündelik yaşamımızda hangi kurallar çerçevesinde yaşayacağımızı belirleyen yasa yapım süreçleri hakkında anlaşılır bilgiye zamanında ulaşmak ve bu süreçlerin katılımcısı olmak. Çünkü bizim irademizle şekillenen Meclis’te konuşulan, görüşülen, yasalaşan her şeyi bilmenin; Meclis’te olup biteni takip etmenin hepimizin hakkı ve sorumluluğu olduğunu düşünüyoruz.

    Yasalar hepimizin hayatını etkileyecek ihtiyaçları karşılamak için hazırlanır. Ancak bir yasa taslağının ne ile ilgili olduğunu ve hayatımızda tam olarak ne gibi bir değişikliğe yol açacağını anlamak çoğu zaman zor, hatta imkansızdır. Çünkü yasa taslakları, uzmanlar tarafından karmaşık ve teknik bir dille yazılır., sivil toplum örgütlerinin, vatandaşların, aslında ilgili olan herkesin, bu yasa taslaklarının kendi hayatları için ne ifade ettiği bilgisine kolayca ulaşmasını; dileyenlerin, uzmanlar tarafından konuyu farklı boyutlarıyla ele alan ve tarafsız şekilde hazırlanan değerlendirmeleri okuyarak farkındalık kazanmasını sağlayacak.

    Asıl hedefimiz ise, yasalar etrafında gerçek bir diyalog ve müzakere süreci başlatmak. Yasa yapım süreçlerinde bizlerin de sesinin ve sözünün olmasını amaçlıyoruz. Ortak yaşam kurallarımızı ancak birbirimizi dinleyerek; görüş ve önerilerimizi birbirimizle paylaşarak oluşturabileceğimize inanıyoruz. Yasa taslaklarının, sadece siyasi görüşler etrafında değil, toplumun genel ortak çıkarı üzerinden yürütülen, farklı kesimlerin sağ duyu ve önerilerini yansıtan bir diyalogla son halini almasını hedefliyoruz. Birbirimizle daha çok konuşursak daha iyi çözümler üretebileceğimizi biliyoruz.’un, böylesi bir sürecin aracı olmasını arzu ediyoruz.
