Premier; "La Bohéme", by Giacomo Puccini




Premier; "La Bohéme", by Giacomo Puccini, at Ankara Opera House


We have had the opportunity to watch the staging of the most beautiful opera in recent years. All my favorite voices were together at the Ankara Opera house last night premier. Saturday (December 3, 2016) night was Premier (first staging). The unique tenor Rodolfo (Murat Karahan), beautiful soprano Mimi (Esin Talinli), Marcello (Eralp Kıyıcı) and wonderful soprano Musetta (Zerrin Karslı).
Your writer is hard to please, but this time he liked the performance this time.
The performance is stage-directed by one of today’s most exciting young directors, the Swiss–Turkish musical director Aylin Bozok has created a wonderful job on the stage. As others have often done, she have not escaped with ridiculous erotic variations, fancy decorations, and expensive costumes.
Living in England, the Swiss Turkish director Aylin Bozok has staged an incredibly beautiful, plain, simple easily viewed performance. In the opera, she skipped details. There is no key scene in the first play, no soldiers in the second play. You can hear the voice of the chorus, but they are at backstage. The children's choir is even more prominent. At the final stage, the sword game is made with simple imagination. There is almost no drink, no glasses, all hidden. No Café. Decor is made simple. Costume design is simple, particularly whitened downward, which led us to dreams. Maestro Alessandro Cedrone gave us an unforgettable night.
The second act was devoted to the Marcello-Musetta duo. They presented a separate love story. The children's choir at the end of the second screen was made up of children between the ages of 8 and 12, they were cute, talented, full of excitement and wonderful. Children must sing children choir in the opera. Their moms and dads filled the audience especially the balcony. They proudly watched their children. Parter was completely full.
In "La Bohéme" Opera, I love the characters Mimi (Esin Talınlı) and Musetta (Zerrin Karslı). In the evening premier, two super sopranos shared the roles. The poet Rodolfo (Murat Karahan), the painter Marcello (Eralp Kıyıcı), the philosopher Colline (Özgür Savaş Gençtürk), performed beautiful well balanced well-experienced voices filling the scene.
Schaunard (Emre Uluocak), Benoit (Levent Akev), Alcindoro (Yigitcan Tatlıoğlu) and Parpignol (Burak Pektaş) have supported the short roles. Parpignol has adorned the character scene, he made simple emotional pleasure in the silent role in the environment with the simple toy vendor character.
The orchestra was magnificent, the voices were almost perfect. Our Maestro "Alessandro Cedrone" was well-controlled, balanced, great, experienced, and soloists were good, emotional, powerful.
We audiences, had training as if they said "Opera is staged like this, it is played like this, it is performed like this".
On December 7-14-19-26, "LaBoheme" will be played again. I do not know if you can find tickets. I have already purchased tickets from the internet. This work will be played multiple times for sure, talked a lot. Absolutely it will be invited to international festivals. Staging will be licensed for sure.
What's the synopsis of "LaBoheme" opera? Let's summarize it in a few-lines. During 19th century Paris, a beautiful young girl and a poor poet fall in love in Bohemian environment. That's all. The girl eventually can not get proper treatment from her long term tuberculosis, in the end she dies. The poet continues to live in pain. It is a true story, written first as a novel, then played in the theater, and lastly applied to the opera. LaBoheme is one of the world's most popular operas.
Ankara opera season starts with continued program from previous year:
Giuseppe Verdi’s "La Traviata"
Giacomo Puccini's "La Boheme",
Georges Bizet's "Carmen" and "Signor Bruschino",
Johann Strauss’ “Gipsy Baron (Der Zigeunerbaron)" and "the Bat (Die Fledermaus)".


The new works this in Ankara are:
Jacques Offenbach’ Parisian Life", and "Tales of Hoffmann (les Contes d'Hoffmann)"
Ballets, "Hamlet" and" Yevgeny Onegin" will continue.


We have reputable music conservatories in Turkey. The opera experience in Turkey spans over a century. Turkish opera singers are great, they take world stages, world class. Opera and Ballet gives us a great daily escape from our daily travails, take a break. Go to the nearest opera house, choose the refuge and recharge your batteries.

BanglaDesh Dhaka



BanglaDesh, New Strategies Developed After Dhaka Terror Incident


We would like to draw your attention to emerging terror instances these days, and to the common political solutions to these unpleasant events all over the world. We observe with amazement and horror that there is a ruthless method as applied earlier by Russians for centuries, which has come into regular solution, that every country authorities have unanimously accepted everywhere in the world. The human source that is lost in the battle of the Russians is worthless. What is important is total destruction of the enemy. Russians spend all their human, equipment and material resources to win the war.
In 1943, in the world's biggest tank fight ever seen before, total 1961 Russian tanks were destroyed against 760 German tanks in the Kursk battle. Germans lost the war and they were withdrawn. Germans could not replace their lost tanks because their factories were bombed. On the other side, Russians produced better models of the tanks they lost in battle in the five factories located away from the war zone which were built behind the Ural mountains. They put them on the battlefield in a fast pace. During the 1945 Berlin Siege, total 81 thousand Russian soldiers and 90-100 thousand German soldiers were killed.
In the case of hostage taking in the Russian strategy, there is no point to care for in loss of a young, old, children men women in the pledge. All the hostages may die. What is important is that the total eradication of terrorists. All terrorists must be destroyed in the end. In 2002 Moscow Dubrovka theater and in 2004 Chechen Beslan school hostage taking events, large number of hostages died, while all terrorists have been killed.
In Western societies earlier, negotiation with terrorists were the key in terror incidents. There were professional negotiators, psychologists employed to save hostages. Authorities concluded that these humanitarian efforts were futile, terrorists do not care. Terrorists do not end their wishes. Although international community rejected at first, ruthless procedure started with Israeli experience in 1971 Munich. In year 1971, all Israeli athletes were taken hostage. Terrorists killed them all in Munich Olympics. Israel ceased negotiating with the terrorists after all. In year 1976, in Uganda Entebbe surprise attack, most of the hostages were rescued, all of the terrorists were killed without any negotiation.
On the days of 1-2 July 2016, all six-terrorists were killed in Dhaka Bangladesh, while 20-foreign hostages and 2-policemen were also killed. It is now common practice that there will be no more negotiations with terrorists. The security forces are killing all, while the hostages are also killed.
The strategy of attacking by all means is the key attempt. As copied from Russian practice, the main target is to destroy the enemy at all costs. Media and internet communications are being censored to remove the possibility of any negotiations.
In last 20-June 2016 Ataturk airport attack, terrorists did not take any hostage. Terrorists blew themselves up. In BanglaDesh 1-July event, terrorist who took foreigners hostage in a café in Dhaka, were all young educated religious, university students. They were children of wealthy families in their normal lives. In Dhaka, we are not talking about poor, uneducated comrades. During intervention of the security forces, terrorists and hostages all died in Dhaka.
Führer of Wehrmacht Germany had no post-secondary education. He was earning his life in post-World War I as an humble painter before joining Nazi party. He ended the 1st World War with the rank of corporal with iron star metal. When he went to jail, there he wrote a book, "Main Kampf". The Nazi party, which was headed by "Führer", in 1933, took 33% of the all votes to win the political power. They moved Germany to the second great world war, They had wide range of talent pool with professors and businessmen at their disposal. When the Führer was in his Berlin shelter in 1945, he said, "Mighty German people have chosen me, they can die because I came to power to rule them." So you as voters are responsible from the politicians you choose. They have to give you an answer in every decision they make. They can not act as they wish. You have to monitor them at all times by all means.
Now we are entering into a new turn. The war on terror will be very cruel. The more you hesitate, the more vulnerable you are. During WW2, we had experienced rulers in this country, to avoid war, not to spare any soldier, any father. Our kids did not loose their fathers. We had difficulties but not war destruction. The time has come for democracy in our geography. It is differently applied than any classical all-inclusive western application. The new brutal cruel strategies in the parliamentary struggle all over the world will force them to enforce the new obligations. New power rules will bend the arm of opposition. The new rules will force to comply with their demands.
At the 2016 METU university graduation ceremony, may we remind you of a famous poster at the hands of new graduate students in Revolution stadium, "It is important not to graduate from this school, but it is very important to survive in this country".
If any similar event happens near you, leave that place as quickly as possible. That is why Embassies warn their compatriots, never enter dangerous areas, because it is very difficult to get out.

Mergers and Acquisitions in Turkish Energy Markets



There is a specialization in the energy markets which is defined as "Mergers and Acquisitions" (or M&A in short). The company founders who set up a company that makes good profits are aging over time. They can not catch up with every job. They become technologically lagging behind in computer age. Deciding on every issue is getting tougher in the developing international markets.
If the company is working properly, if it is managed well, it makes money, it makes profit, its market value rises. But younger generations who should take over the company, are sometimes indifferent to the property. They want to do other things. Foreigners may get interested and are desirous to purchase this valuable company. The company is evaluated by the independent rating agencies and finally the company is sold. Former owners take their share of the sale price and then are drawn to their corners. Some former owners may remain professionally employed for a while because they know how the company works. When this transition period is over and the new professional staff members replace the responsibility, former owners work is over.
Local branch of Deloitte has issued the most comprehensive work on domestic company sales, titled "Annual Turkish M&A Review 2015", an important report published in January 2016 which explains very important details. The privatizations in the energy market are evaluated within the same scope. In 2015, 2/3 of all purchases were foreign capital, primarily Qatar, USA and Chinese capital.
In the past few years, we have witnessed a lot of ownership transfers in the energy companies. In 478 MWe output capacity Trakya Elektrik, US partner's share is transferred to domestic partners and then the domestic partners sold all their majority shares to the new Russian investor. Some of other combined cycle thermal power plant majority share sales are on the agenda.
There are serious discounts on sales prices. Iskenderun Sugözü 1360 Mwe imported coal power plant majority shares were sold. The new owners are put the third unit investment "on hold".
Expert investors who carry out M&A jobs earn good money. During the period we are in, there is a rise in foreign exchange prices and a decrease in company selling prices. It is not good time to sell company since it is too cheap, however it is good time to buy a good profitable company for the same reason. Company and real estate prices have fallen, there are no buyers, no investors who will put money.
Once there was a successful company which was producing high capacity steam boilers under local design in Istanbul. The second generation children wanted to do other works, company was sold, and new owners were not so successful. Istanbul based Demirdöküm casting plant is sold.
Izmir based boiler company Desa was sold. It is always a source of sadness for me to sell Desa to newcomers, which was an important factory of İzmir region. Desa company had a great accumulation of technological experience.
An experienced local engineering company, is purchased by GazantiKoza group.
German Steag energy company bought a local engineering firm with a very experienced engineering team on the Turkish market.
Another Istanbul engineering firm is negotiating sales with Traktabel.
Local engineering companies are getting sold to foreign investors at very reasonable even sometimes at cheap prices.
Old-established big contractors leave the domestic market, they work abroad, they earn more money in their overseas business. Enka Power, Gama Power, Tekfen Engineering have been strengthened their market share by experienced staff, they became group locomotive companies.
On the other hand, the domestic market has fallen into the scope of medium-sized companies that have close relations with politics. These mid-sized companies do not have the engineering capacity. They depend on the cheap vendors of Far East and their unreliable designs. Their purchase contracts, project execution contracts, are very simple, there are no applicable guarantees, no sanctions, no delay or performance penalties. Projects are going in Chinese direction. Some of them are paying the North American consulting engineering firms as their owners engineers.
However, it is too absurd to me to build a new thermal power plant in Turkey, which will use domestic fuel and take equipment from China based on North American engineering company's ready-made contract documents. People from the other end of the world will most likely write emails, at best they will have conference calls without any face to face human contact. If there would occur any disagreement, everyone will take the blame on each other. The job of managing this business with oversees contractors and owners engineers is very difficult.
However, by hiring a local consultant company, placing order to a local contractor, working with a domestic assembly team, a local financier can handle all these tasks much easier. Everyone can gather around a table at any moment if necessary, problems are solved fast, much earlier without getting too serious, without wasting time in blaming each other.
Some investors consider to purchase second hand power plants with life time is already completed. These are not power plants but complete scrap. They plan to disassemble at original site, transport to new site, then reassemble them to run. This decision is more absurd. It does not make sense to buy old plants with old designs.
With new tenders which were planed soon, Cayirhan-2, Eskisehir, Konya, Bursa, Trakya coal fields will be delivered to new investors at discounted domestic electricity prices auctioned to reduce prices less than 7 US cents per kW-hour. These new investors will look for ultra cheap Chinese suppliers to reduce their initial cost. However the off-the- shelf designs of Chinese thermal power plants do not meet our expectations at our indigenous coal fields, as we have witnessed at the current local projects. Their design are not comparable, they do not meet our environmental norms, their spare parts are missing, their dust collecting filters are small, their flue gas desulphurisation equipment are not satisfactory. They can not operate 60-days non stop, as our public norm to pass temporary acceptance.
We read the names of the same companies in each new tender result. The tender is canceled if it is not received by the expected firm. So the message goes to the markets. The conditions of fair competition for free market were not enough. The market is in this situation and desperately accepted the all parties.
In private thermal power plants, if cost of electricity generation is more than the prevailing market price, especially between 23:00 and 10:00 at night, we simply do not produce electricity. Since the cost of electricity produced is higher than the market selling price, the electricity generation is temporarily and voluntarily cut off under reasoning of "commercial victimization" or "force majeure".
Debt delaying was a special case in the past. Now it's almost like the general situation. Credit card installment was still a postponement. Where will this unusual debt deferral go? Company sales have been in the financial banking industry for some time. Now it has started in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, hospital sectors as well. Company sale prices have dropped, but there is still no appetite for buying at the markets. There is no new investor arrivals, no fresh money entry.
Nowadays we hear people who sell their valuable company, take their money to Miami Florida banks, buy a small 50m2 condominium there and build a new life. In a narrower scope, we encounter friends who are buying a local holiday space in popular sea resorts at Datca, Seferihisar, Ayvalık, Antalya. They leave their houses and leave the big city. This is another procedure, for M&A application.

Brain Drain in Turkish Energy Markets



On Sunday evening, October 23,2016 in Istanbul Zorlu PSM concert hall Hungarian pianist Havasi's concert started at 20:00 hours. We observed that 2200+ spectators filled the hall. The seat prices were sold for 100-150-200 liras. Istanbul's "crema de la crema" riches, star artists, celebrities, intellectual columnists were there. On the seats a fancy envelope had already been left for the spectators. Prior to the intermission, the artist talked about an incentive in the context of this envelope. The opportunity is as follows:
You pay 300 thousand Euros, you buy 5-year tenure Hungarian government bonds. You additionally pay an additional 60 thousand Euros for the expense. You get a residence permit in Hungary. 5-years later you give back the government bonds, then you get your money back. You get Hungarian citizenship, now you are a citizen of European community. Details were explained on their web address.
Classic music audiences are highly educated, so they were skeptical respond to this marketing. Most of them have other connections, possibilities and other associations.
It is not possible to live in capitalism and complain. Those who live abroad know very well. Racism and discriminations are very intense there. In fact, the Hungarian economy is in a bad situation. Is Hungary a country to live in? Is it better than us? I do not think so. Are people in Russia, in Shanghai-five countries etc. live in better conditions? Can Russia, China, Hungary be an alternative to Turkey? Does our people want to live like in Russia? No.
Can you take it back once you've delivered your money? If you will give the money and go to Hungary, then we can say, "Go ahead, it is your choice"
The same Hungarians built walls on their borders with barbed wire to avoid crossing of helpless Syrian Afghan immigrants not to carry their burden.
We are informed that the organizers of such a marketing have opened offices in Ankara, Istanbul, Izmir and other major cities.
People want to go abroad to migrate to a better life. Everything at sight is in compliance with the law. But the ethics of these marketing promotions we think are wrong, that is ruining image of our country. With these types of immigration marketing, we are moving out of a highly acclaimed, jealous, envied rich life standard, highly anticipated environment, and we run to a "failed state" where citizens plan to escape to other countries. These are not necessary, and these efforts should be stopped. That is an unnecessary activity of brain drain in our energy markets, sweeping all our young engineering capability.
The marketing of such a commercial business during a classical music concert is an interesting and surprising activity. Of course the desire for immigration in some cases is so desperate.
I read another similar marketing the other day. Real estate agent sells house in Canada. You buy a house at a price of $ 500 thousand, a small 50m2 house. So you are investing in Canada. In return, Canadian immigration give you a residence permit in Canada. You go to Canada and spend 5 years there, finding a job, getting a job or starting a business. You do not interfere any wrong doing in Canada for 5-years, you do not pay even traffic tickets. Then you receive your Canadian citizenship.
The possibility of receiving residence permit was applied in Florida Florida property sales earlier. The same procedure is now promoted in real estate markets in Portugal, Spain and Ireland. The small countries of the European Union have made this practice a revenue source.
"If we would have promoted the same marketing of the residence permit in our country for the Middle-Eastern immigrants, we would have sold them a 5-year Turkish Treasury bill for the residence permit."
So, instead of the poor, helpless, uneducated, desperate people who have consumed our resources, we could have rich young educated people to contribute to our economy. Our hospitals would not be operated over capacity, our health services would not collapse. We would not have Tuberculosis, smallpox, polio. Our streets would not be full of beggars.
Other than Europe and North America, Uruguay, who does not want visa from us, is a very popular immigration country these days. But in Uruguay you need to learn Latin Spanish accent special for Uruguay.
New Zealand's English, like our authentic local speaking, is a difficult accent to understand separately. You need to learn the new accent there.
We hear conversations to buy homes in North Cyprus, or in Greece Western Thrace. If the war on our south border leaps to us, there is a saying, "If there is a malfunction, we can go to North Cyprus or Western Thrace as the last resort"
These are all nonsense. You can not live in another country with their residence permit so easily without getting job or building an enterprise to earn money. You can stay in any other country not more than 3-6 months.
You can go abroad to sell your goods and services, you buy and sell, you promote your business, visit, for sightseeing . This is all normal for business people. Long-term immigration is a separate case.
One has to think very well while taking this decision. There is nothing as beautiful as living in peace with their loved ones in their own country.

Diversification Visa, or DV-lottery for USA,




This is the official name of the US Green card lottery in English. If you wish to be doing the google search, use these words. You will then find the US DV-lottary official site, asking you to upload your biometric photo first. Your both ears will be visible, head open, no glasses, no earrings. Then you respond to the questions on the screen. Do you have any criminal record? What is your education? Did you use drugs, narcotics in the past? Are you deported from any country? Registration then is over. There is no charge for lottery application. There is no need for an intermediary firm to help.
Last weekend we were sitting in front of the computer to see what it was. We had internet page open. So we looked at it to understand what was going on. We looked for a place for ourselves as if we have already won the lottery. Kids preferred California, Florida, whereas I preferred less populated places like Montana, Oregon, Wisconsin, Colorado, with plenty of natural resources, fewer populations. Educational health services are relatively better, and racism is relatively less.
Next morning I looked at Wikipedia information. The US is looking for young population and diverse ethnic identities. They upfront eliminate applications from Britain, Bangladesh, Mexico, Vietnam, as such countries that have already sent many immigrants earlier from the lottery list.
In 2013, from Turkey we had 1600+ lottery winners out of 170 thousand applications. Last year, we had 3000 lottery winners out of 300 thousand applications. This year they are expecting 500 thousand applications from Turkey. There are 6-7 million applications per year in the whole world. 100 thousand lottery winners comes out, half of them are eliminated due to various reasons, impossibilities. Eventually each year 50 thousand people can go. In other words, there is chance of 1% lottery in the world average. So there is no need to be overly optimistic.
There is no burden on the US budget due to this lottery. At the beginning, lottery organizers already make a pre-selection. Why should they accept people with old age, or at retired age, or unable to speak English. Young, healthy, English speaking people are probably their first choice.
I looked at those who had won DV- lottery around my friends. Those winners are all in this category, all young, all educated people. We spend their education expenses here, we send those educated young bright people there. Sad to say, we can not create the environment to keep those trained people here. Is this place where they will be immigrating any better than here? Social security, proper health care coverage, I doubt it. Here, there is your friend circle, you have your dentist, your family doctor, your car mechanic, plumber, electrician. Good or bad, you have public transportation here. There is train, subway, municipality transportation. In the US there is only car transportation, if you do not have a private car, you are miserable. Do they have democracy in the United States? Is it a paradise to live in? I do think that Europe's democratic practice is much better.
When lottery results are announced, within a certain period of time those lottery winners are expected to sell all their properties here, accumulating all in cash, paying airplane tickets from their pocket and they will be going. They will have working and living permit in the USA. They live in the US for 5- uninterrupted years, they do not get out of the US for 5-years, they do not get involved in any criminal offense, they even pay attention not even to get traffic tickets. They get citizenship after 5 years. But all in all they are the first generation immigrants. In order to be a real US citizen, they should be born in the USA.
After Donald Trump won the US elections in November 8, large number of US citizens applied to the Canadian immigration website. Canadian internet page has collapsed. Would you like to live in a country run by Donald Trump? Consider this new situation as well. It is an ironic situation. There are sarcastic news that "Migration is starting backwards". Canadian residence permit applications are under 26-month review. Canadians make jokes that they will be building a new wall between the United States to stop illegal immigrations.
Having lived abroad for a long time earlier, being a long-time immigrant does not please me. My age is getting old. It is not easy to rearrange it, find a new job, get a job, build a new business to earn money, all not so easy.
There are news in the local media that special passport coverage will be expanded. Special Passports do not have any meaning for most countries. Whether it is special or normal passport, there are no passport visa exemptions for USA, UK, Canada, Australia, China, Russia anyway. What will happen soon if foreign countries exempt visa exemption of all passports altogether?
Russian market has not been opened yet, visa applications continued. Do not believe in the media news as prepared at the table without any backup proof.
Already after 8-November US presidential elections, Obama and his team are going to leave public duty. Public duties do not last forever.
There are certain wear and tear times. Life is cruel. Human life has a limit. Everything ends in one day, all ends are renewed.
It is unchanging the change itself. Someday everything will change.
Payback of everything, bonus, honor, reward and punishment are given and taken while living in this world.
You should not be discouraged in facing of prevailing economic difficulties. We're not going anywhere, we are not leaving. We had difficulties in this country in the past. We have suffered so much. We have worked, created jobs, money, property, wealth, we have established and run business.
Tough days will pass one day. We will make more production, generate more wealth. This country is ours. Stronger and richer Turkey is waiting for us. All will be created within Democracy and thanks to the Republic.
