CNN Türk was forced to halt its coverage of the coup in Turkey after soldiers entered the studio. But its Facebook live feed was still running and viewers could see some of what transpired.
The Turkish military has deployed onto the streets of Istanbul, blocking off the main bridges to Europe, with tanks rumbling down main thoroughfares and fighter jets flying over traffic. The Turkish Prime Minister has appeared on television, describing it as as a coup d’etat attempt. UPDATING
We’re either bummed or glad that this trailer for Üç Harfliler 3 is the first we’ve heard of Turkish filmmaker Alper Mestçi. Bummed, because clearly we’ve been missing out on what looks like a talented rising star—or glad, because his freakishly disturbing imagery is guaranteed nightmare fodder.
Russia and Turkey each have their own version of what happened with that downed jet earlier this week, but science may have the last word. According to two Belgian astrophysicists, neither nation is being entirely truthful.
Centuries ago, humans didn’t eat turkeys—we revered them. But around the mid-1000s, Puebloan peoples of the American Southwest started roasting the sacred bird. What happened?
Hours after a Russian Su-24 fighter jet was shot down by a Turkish F-16 over Syria after Turkey claimed the jet invaded its airspace, killing two pilots, tensions remain high between both nations as the U.S. and France urged caution and de-escalation. In addition, a Russian soldier was apparently killed today by Free…
Earlier this month, a team of divers swimming off the coast of Turkey discovered something unexpected: a 4-meter wide gelatinous mass of what turned out to be one of the biggest mass of squid eggs ever discovered.
Magical realism can illuminate and amplify the emotions in a deeply personal story — or, in clumsy hands, it can just create extra distractions and create a giant mess. Russell Crowe tries to use magical realism in his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, and the results are less than great.
Did you know that turkeys kill rattlesnakes? Forgive me a little bit of a Ben Franklin moment, but I’m going to tell you about one of the most interesting wild animals that’s native to North America and what it’s like tracking them in the wild.
A shotgun shell can achieve anything from lightly peppering a clay target at close range to taking down a deer at 35 yards. And that huge variance in capability can all come out the business end of a single gun. That's because you can precisely tailor what's inside a shell to your specific needs. Here's how.
In an effort to rescue 38 soldiers and the remains of Suleyman Shah — the "grandfather of the Ottoman Empire" — from ISIS forces, Turkey yesterday dispatched hundreds of soldiers, tanks, aircraft, and drones to a tomb in Syria.
Behold, Turkey's Love Valley. It's happy to see you, too!
Two weeks ago, Mark Zuckerberg wrote an impassioned post about the importance of free speech following the Charlie Hebdo killings. This week—whiplash warning—Facebook is censoring images of the Prophet Muhammad in Turkey, including images similar to the Hebdo cartoons.
Twitter and Turkey have a bit of a love-hate-hate-hate-hate relationship, insofar as Twitter users love to publish unflattering facts about the government, and the government hates that and tries to get Twitter to censor messages. In this particular case, the government is threatening to outright block Twitter unless…
No football, no parades, just the top of a grassy mountain, 3,300 feet above the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, 25 friends and too many dogs to count. Yeah, we went camping and that meant we had a better time than you did.
Thanksgiving is over. The post-Thanksgiving sales are over. And yet, turkey leftovers remain. For last week's Shooting Challenge, we asked you to photograph your turkeys. Two of you found the time. And what resulted was a duo of turkeys—one which will make you never want to eat turkey again, and one that will…
I don't understand America's fascination with Thanksgiving turkey, especially when most people cook it so badly that they make it more bland than it already is. But if you insist in cooking this instead of a flavorful bird or meat, at least cook it properly. Or crazy. Or both, like these engineers did in this…
You might think you ate so much turkey yesterday that you had enough for the rest of your life. But that feeling will pass (believe me) and eventually, you'll crave again for more. When that time comes, remember this Pornburger.
How does one eat a Thanksgiving meal? On its face this might seem like a ridiculous question, and also everywhere else too. I mean, who doesn't know how to eat? (Excepting the British, of course.) Thanksgiving is marked, more than anything else, by its abundance of tasty foodstuffs; practically speaking, it is a…
