Sunrise in Istanbul
It was 5:30 in the morning as our sallow Renault cab crossed the Bosphorus bridge in Istanbul. Trying to ignore the cries of the wasted engine, I tried to devour those final 15 minutes before reaching the airport. The sky was an ocean of colors, changing from the deep purples to magnificent shades of lilac, like the scarves I had seen only a few days ago at the Grand Bazaar. The crescent moon hung in the lonely sky as the first rays of sunlight began seeping in from the east. I loosened my hair tie, letting the perfume of my freshly-washed hair blend with the scents of the early morning that wafted in on the breeze. A hint of fish and spices lingered in the breeze. It would be a clear day, which only meant two things: more bait for the fisherman, and an unspoken promise from my airline that the plane would be taking off after all.

It’s a real challenge to sleep in Istanbul. There is so much beauty in its history and landscape; you forget you haven’t reposed in days. As I gave an unwilling attempt at a moment’s rest, the rich voice of the imams hypnotized me as they commenced their prayers for the new day. In a matter of seconds, not just in my ears but in my heart, I felt Istanbul freeing itself from the spell of nighttime. The seagulls swarmed around the minarets of the mosques in the distance, their cries leaving ghostly echoes in the sunrise.
As we drove along the shoreline, I beheld waiters in cafes setting up for breakfast. Carrying jars full of exotic jams, plates with tomatoes soaked in olive oil and lemon, they tended to their affairs, making my…...

Two Alternative Projects to Eurasia Tunnel

...chapter we find alternative solutions for decreasing traffic situation in Istanbul. There are two possible solutions for that; they are usage of a third Bridge that connect two continents and usage of Ferries. Our assumptions for alternative solutions are to develop car transportation via ferries or a third bridge. In order to make comparison of all three projects more easy we take the capacity for all projects as 120,000 vehicles per day, because the capacity of the tunnel and the third bridge are similar. Two alternative solutions As it known in Istanbul there is a big concern about traffic and its possible solutions. The main difficulty for people that live in Istanbul is to get from Asian side to European side by their own car and as example to get from Kadikoy to Zeytinburnu by normal way through the bridge can take approximately 100 minutes. The Eurasia Tunnel project is a new solution for this problem that will take 15 minutes to pass from one side to another. But also there are two more possible solutions like usage of Ferries and usage of a Third Bridge. Pic. 1 (A- Zeytinburnu, B-Kadikoy 1-Ferry for cars) On the Picture 1 there is shown the way that vehicles have to pass in order to get from point A to point B. And it is obvious that the way is not short that is also including traffics on the bridges. So the alternative solution can be a usage of ferry. There are two types of ferries in Istanbul one of them that can take only passengers as a bus, so it......

Culture of Istanbul

...Istanbul is undoubtedly an important city as the centre of various civilizations and cultures in the entire history. Its crucial cachets had attracted at least three giant empires (Roman, Byzantium and Ottoman Empires); that was made Istanbul to be the “nest” and “bridge” not only for dominant cultures to prevail, but also provided “shelter” for vulnerable and weak minorities.14 Istanbul made a significant progress after the conquest by the Turks. Constantinople gradually had lost its essence and influence, subsequently took a new thrilling “breath” for re-strengthening as a capital of an Oriental and Muslim culture. Istanbul became a face of the East Muslim culture for the West Christian world: it played a role of linkage between the East and West. Concerning importance of Muslim Culture, Turkish in particular, for the West, Chris Morris analyzes backward situation of the West. Moreover, he sheds light on the East’s contributions to the reduction of gap and states that European Christian space was lagging behind the Muslim East in terms of improvement of technology and civilization up to 16th century. Ottoman conquests urged interaction of Christians and Muslims, herein “Islamic world became Europe’s link with more advanced civilizations to the East. Knowledge of medicine and mathematics, astronomy and the arts, hygiene and new agricultural techniques all flooded in with the invading armies of soldiers, sailors and merchants.”15 However, the challenges coming from the East......

The Insurance Company (Halk Sigorta T.A.Ţ.)

...divisions. The central division which is located in İstanbul, underwrites about 45 per cent of policies. Ninety per cent of policy underwritings of the company are performed by agencies which are about 500 in number, whereas the remaining 10 per cent is performed directly by the personnel of the company. Two major strategic management questions that we were expected to answer were the stagnation / decline in the growth pattern of the company and the continuous demand by various departments for hiring additional employees, in spite of this trend.   2. Model Structure   In the first two months of the 12-month project, the company and the insurance sector are analyzed thoroughly to decide on the basic structure of the simulation model. One key decision arrived at the end of this phase was to model the company in two parts: İstanbul (central region) and Regions (other regional divisions). İstanbul and Regions perform almost equally in terms of total number of policies and premiums. Another decision was to take the simulation time unit as one month. The model was built as a discrete one, so that the simulation step was also fixed at one month. The company is modeled into 10 major sectors some of which are similar structurally: İstanbul Accident, İstanbul Fire, İstanbul Claims, İstanbul Agencies, Regions Accident, Regions Fire, Regions Claims, Regions Agencies, Marketing and Finance. Accident, Fire, Claims and Agencies sectors of İstanbul and Regions are very similar in......
