Lately, Hotels Seem to be Falling Short on the People Parts | By Doug Kennedy

While all of the staff I encountered were polite and efficient, their service style was overall reactive and not proactive.

Spurs' reaction to possible Serge Ibaka return? Mock shock

NBA Given word Serge Ibaka might play Sunday against his team, San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich provided his best Capt. Renault impersonation. "I'm shocked. I'm so surprised," Popovich said, a deadpan response from a man who has seen about everything the NBA playoffs can deliver.

An Animated History of the Ottoman Empire (1299 – 1922)

History is selective. Or, rather, it’s selected by those in power for their own uses. Nowhere do we see this more than in nationalist re-imaginings of an imperial past, whether it be British, Roman, or, in the case of modern Turkey, Ottoman. “Much has been written,” notes Time magazine’s Alan Mikhail, “about [Turkish president Recep Tayyip] Erdogan’s attempts to ‘resurrect’ the Ottoman Empire or to style himself a sultan.” Erdogan’s turn to hardline Islam has been inspired by one particu...
