We must protect the city. The words of Yakima Police Captain Jay Seely when asked why the Yakima Police Department no longer has armed resource officers at colleges across the city. Seely says that in the past, the department had enough officers to cover all areas of the city and place officers in high schools and colleges around the city. But this is no longer the case. Now, armed officers are now in Davis and Eisenhower high schools.

Shortages have forced the ministry to make tough decisions

The city lacks 12 to 14 officers. This shortage not only forced the cancellation of the college resource officers, but also forced the city to cancel the traffic unit last year. It was hoped the unit could be restarted in June, but Seely says that won’t happen. He hopes to have a full police force by the end of the year. Seely says two armed resource officers work at Davis and Eisenhower high schools. He also says the department is working closely with the Yakima School District to reinforce school entrances and create safety plans. Seely says the district recently hired a retired officer to coordinate private security in the district.

Yakima Schools Superintendent Dr. Trevor Greene says his heart is broken

Yakima School District Superintendent Dr. Trevor Greene emailed parents in the district on Tuesday;
“Like all of you, my heart is heavy and broken by the news of the senseless shooting and death of at least 19 children and at least two adults at an elementary school in Texas today. It pains me to share information about this tragedy, the 30 school shooting in our country in 2022 and the deadliest since the Florida shooting in 2018. Our schools are meant to be a place of discovery and joy, a place filled with exploration and growth and a safe and peaceful home away from home. from a horrific disaster. I want to assure our staff and families that YSD has a strong safety and security team working hard every day to protect the well-being of our school’s valued occupants. We call on our school community to work together to keep our schools peaceful and safe by reporting any signs of suspicious activity or behavior to our school or district personnel. We can’t say or do anything to make this horrible situation better, but it just isn’t. The only thing we can do at this time is to send our thoughts, support, prayers, light – or however you express your love and care – to those affected by the incomprehensible tragedy of ‘today.”

2,900-year-old Urartian Castle is transformed into an open-air museum https://hacveumreziyareti.com/2900-year-old-urartian-castle-is-transformed-into-an-open-air-museum/ Wed, 25 May 2022 13:53:01 +0000 https://hacveumreziyareti.com/2900-year-old-urartian-castle-is-transformed-into-an-open-air-museum/

History is an inconstant subject. If not carefully preserved, it quickly disappears into the cloudy nights of forgotten lands, never to be found again. The 2,900-year-old Altıntepe Castle – one of the most important Urartian cities in Anatolia, Erzincan in eastern Turkey – can testify to this. Standing the test of time as the only remnant of its unique culture, it is now ready to open up to visitors after being converted into an open-air museum with excavations ending at the site.

The artifacts unearthed in the Urartian-era Altıntepe Castle, located on the historic Silk Road and turned into an open-air museum affectionately dubbed “the Archeopark”, are the only examples of Urartian culture they represent.

Altıntepe Castle, one of the most important centers of the Urartians and the Eastern Roman Empire, is located on a 60-meter-high (196-foot-high) hill in Üzümlü district, 14 kilometers (8.69 miles) northeast of Erzincan town. center.

The first excavations in and around Urartian Castle, where hundreds of historical artifacts dating from 850 and 590 BC are found, were conducted between 1959 and 1967 under the direction of Professor Tahsin Özgüç of Ankara University .

Restarted in 2003 by Professor Mehmet Karaosmanoğlu in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Atatürk University, the excavations were completed in 2019.

A lot of important information and many historical artifacts, some of which are singular examples, were obtained during the excavations carried out in the 2,900-year-old castle, which is one of the most important Urartian settlements in Anatolia. The historical knowledge gained from the excavations has been assessed in numerous articles and published in several books.

The castle has been restored since the excavations and transformed into an open-air museum by creating footpaths. Once the landscaping work is completed, the museum will be open to visitors.

Provincial Culture and Tourism Director Arda Heb told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the excavations of Altıntepe Castle have contributed significantly to Anatolian archaeology.

Heb explained that the castle had been turned into an open-air museum after many years of excavation.

“The first excavations at Altıntepe Castle, which is 14 kilometers from our city center, were initiated by the late Professor Tahsin Öngüç in 1959, and our professor’s excavations continued until 1968. The second excavation stage was carried out by Professor Mehmet Karaosmanoğlu between 2003 and 2020. In these studies, important architectural remains and artifacts belonging to the Urartian period were found.

Heb said that Altıntepe is one of the most important settlements of the Urartian civilization which has survived to the present day.

“Structures from the Urartian period discovered at Altıntepe have made a significant contribution to Anatolian archeology and are the only examples of the culture they represent. Artifacts excavated from the castle are on display at the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations in Ankara and have been evaluated in many articles and published. Altıntepe Castle has survived to the present day and is an important settlement of Urartian civilization.”

Heb said the site, which has been converted into an “archeopark”, contains many historical remains.

“The inner structure and walls of the castle, the temple, the apadana (a great hypostyle hall), the storehouse building, the remains of the outdoor temple foundations, and three underground burial halls, all of which belong to the Urartian period, were unearthed in the castle,” he said.

“In addition, the remains of a mosaic church decorated with animal figures from the post-Urartian period have survived to the present day. With the works carried out under the auspices of our Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the works will continue to transform the castle into an archaeological park and serve as an open-air museum for our people.”

Turkish tourism heats up, stoking hopes of economic recovery | The mighty 790 KFGO https://hacveumreziyareti.com/turkish-tourism-heats-up-stoking-hopes-of-economic-recovery-the-mighty-790-kfgo/ Mon, 23 May 2022 12:59:16 +0000 https://hacveumreziyareti.com/turkish-tourism-heats-up-stoking-hopes-of-economic-recovery-the-mighty-790-kfgo/

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – The number of foreigners arriving in Turkey last month more than tripled from a year earlier, data showed on Monday, bolstering expectations that a rebound in the sector will help repair a battered economy. a weak currency and high inflation.

Industry officials expect tourist numbers this year to return to around 2019 levels, leaving behind the 2020-21 coronavirus crisis despite the fallout from war in Ukraine.

Foreign arrivals in April jumped 225.6% from a year earlier to 2.57 million, according to data from the Ministry of Tourism.

In the southwestern resort of Bodrum, Mayor Ahmet Aras said foreign visitors would reach 1.5 million, surpassing 1.3 million in the pre-pandemic year of 2019.

Aras said the British, Germans and Dutch would return, attracted by the weakness of the pound, offsetting the decline in Russian and Ukrainian visitors due to the war.

“We really are a cheap destination now. Not only Bodrum but Turkey itself, which has again become a very attractive destination due to the weakness of the lira,” he said.

The lira has halved in value over the past year, attracting attention in countries that were previously only small sources of Turkish tourism. Piotr Henicz, chairman of Poland’s biggest tour operator Itaka, said bookings had tripled compared to last year.

“In a nutshell: excellent value for money,” he said.

Last year, tourism revenue doubled to almost $25 billion – still below $34.5 billion in 2019, when 45.1 million foreigners visited Turkey.

A currency crisis late last year largely propelled inflation to a two-decade high of 70% last month.

The government says foreign earnings will help stabilize the currency and dampen rising prices, even though the trade balance has plunged further into negative territory.


According to a report by the World Travel & Tourism Council, Turkey is expected to be the fourth most popular European destination this summer.

Yet east of Bodrum, in the main Mediterranean center of Antalya, the impact of the war is more acute. Russians and Ukrainians were the first and third largest sources of visitors to the country last year, and they both favor the region.

Antalya is expected to lose about 3 million Russian tourists and 1 million Ukrainians this year, about two-thirds of its total, said Recep Yavuz, managing director of NBK Touristic.

“Antalya cannot fill its capacity of 600,000 beds without the Russians,” he said.

Ulkay Atmaca, head of the Professional Association of Hotel Managers, said hotels in Kemer have postponed season openings until June.

Still, Nirvana Hotels chief executive Korhan Alsan said with outstanding bookings in all European markets, the country is expected to reach 2019 levels.

“I estimate that Turkey will get tourism revenue worth $32 billion and welcome 39 million tourists,” Alsan said.

]]> Turkey summons US ambassador over warning over police methods https://hacveumreziyareti.com/turkey-summons-us-ambassador-over-warning-over-police-methods/ Sun, 22 May 2022 22:20:00 +0000 https://hacveumreziyareti.com/turkey-summons-us-ambassador-over-warning-over-police-methods/

ISTANBUL (AP) — The U.S. ambassador to Ankara has been summoned to the Turkish Foreign Ministry following a warning to U.S. citizens in Turkey about their attendance at a political rally that referenced police crowd control methods , state media reported on Sunday.

The embassy posted a message on its website May 18 ahead of a rally in Istanbul for the Republican People’s Party, or CHP, on Saturday evening.

“Turkish National Police have used measures, including water cannons, tear gas and non-lethal projectiles, to control crowds at protests in the past,” the alert to U.S. citizens in Turkey said. “There is a good chance that similar measures will be used during this protest.”

The official Anadolu news agency, citing unnamed ministry sources, reported that Ambassador Jeffry Flake had been summoned so that the Turkish government could express its “discomfort” over the “unsubstantiated allegations” in the US warning.

Turkey’s Foreign Ministry issued its own warning to Turkish citizens in the United States on Sunday, which appeared to mirror the US statement. He said that in the past, live ammunition, electroshock, tear gas and “violent acts” had been used by US police to quell protests.

Foreign embassies in Turkey regularly warn their citizens to avoid large crowds and demonstrations.

CEBU, Philippines—Medellin is one of the most exciting cities tourist destinations in the province of Cebu.

This peaceful and quiet second-class municipality in the north has more to offer than being the sugar bowl of the province of Cebu.

Besides its white sand beaches, panoramic sunrise and sunset views, Medellin is home to many other adventures.

Medellin offers destinations like coral reefs, rivers, an artificial canal and adventure rides for tourists.

Recently, the city has become really famous for its “alley of Medellin” and its bamboo forest.

Bonsai Capital and Golf Capital of Cebu

Apart from this, the city is also planning to become the city of Cebu “Bonsai Capital” and “Golfing Capital”, according to Medellin tourism manager Gyles Anthony Villamor.

“We also aim to earn the title of ‘The Bonsai Capital of Cebu,'” Villamor said.

(We are also aiming to earn the title of “The Bonsai Capital of Cebu” as there is no other city with so many decades-old bonsai collections.)

The Laguerta Perino Bonsai Collection in the city’s Barangay Dayhagon houses different varieties of age-old bonsai collections.

According to Villamor, these collections have been open to the public during the pandemic.

Viilamor told CDN Digital that the LGU is also planning to have its own floating restaurant on the Dagusungan River soon.

Naa nay ana proposal modeled after Loboc in Bohol. Dagusungan River is 1.9 kilometers na siya pasulod, taas na sya. “, did he declare.

(We also have a proposal inspired by Loboc in Bohol. The Dagusungan River is 1.9 kilometers inland and it is a long river.)

Villamor also talked about the different diving activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling and snorkeling that can now be done on the city’s Gibitngil Island.

Villamor has identified at least five new dive spots in Medellin—(2) in Gibitngil Island and (3) in Sitio Lapaan.

Tourism during the pandemic

During the pandemic, Villamor said Medellin’s tourism industry was barely affected.

“Daghan ta’g bag-o gyod since the nagpandemic. Uban gud man started to protect himself from the pandemic, he is near. Ang Medellin nabali. Pagpandemic daghan nuon tag open,” Villamor said.

(We have several new [places to visit] since the pandemic. Others would say that many have been affected by the pandemic, many [establishments] farm. In Medellin, it was reversed. When the pandemic hit, many opened.)

“Open the bamboo forest, you will open full throttle all men in Cebu City, all urban areas, you will relax with pleasure, you will relax with pleasure. Gusto moadto og probinsya kay ubos2 man og kaso sa Covid sa probinsya at this time of the pandemic so managan og probinsya. So nangita og nature,” he added.

(The bamboo forest opened up, it became a full throttle opening because the people of Cebu City, urban areas, would like to relax, they like to relax. So they like to go to the province or (areas rural) because there are less cases of COVID in the province at this time of the pandemic, so they ran to the province, so they sought nature.)

In fact, more tourist attractions and restaurants have opened since the pandemic, which Villamor says has also opened up more opportunities for locals here.

So, CDN Digital has listed these 14 tourist destinations in Medellin that will make your trip a blast!
