Justin Gatlin makes a quick impression - Knoxville News Sentinel

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
I know and just being a fast runner, just breaking it down to the simplest forms and just competing," Gatlin said. Gatlin was the youngest Olympic champion in the 100 when he won the event in Athens and Sunday he became one of the oldest sprinters to win the 100 at the trials. Gatlin said he feels as good as he felt in 2004 and maintains the same 182 pounds that he did eight years ago. "So far this season has been undefeated and I've just been trying to ride that wave," he said. Gatlin said his maturity and his two-year-old son, Jace, have changed his outlook on the sport and refreshed his outlook. "Before, in 2004 or 2005, I was not really worried about my health, not really worried about my diet," he said. "I look at other athletes, boxers, and how they take care of their bodies and try to mimic that." In Sunday's semifinal, Gatlin ran 10.06 to win the second of three heats. In the final, Gatlin took control of the race early and his finish left no doubt about his dominance and his spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Gatlin said he would return home and continue to work on his craft and technique prior to heading to London where a possible showdown with Usain Bolt of Jamaica awaits. Bolt holds the world record at 9.58.

Rauf Denktash, Who Led Turkish Cypriots, Dies at 87

Sun, Jan 15, 2012
Glafkos Clerides, had been friends since childhood and negotiating adversaries for 25 years. Their talks were stymied for many reasons — by fears of giving away too much, by pressures from Athens and Ankara, by walls of distrust between their communities. A series of proposals by the United Nations, the United States and others over the years to talk about reunifying the island went nowhere. Mr. Denktash insisted on recognition of his breakaway state as a condition for resuming the talks. He said he feared that reunification would open the way for Greek Cypriot domination and increase the dangers of violence. “I know that whatever I do I will be known as Mr. No No, the one who is always intransigent,” he told an English interviewer. But he insisted he had no choice. “We are like little candles in a sea of Greeks,” he said. “One storm and we are all snuffed out.” Rauf Denktash was born in 1924 into a wealthy family in Paphos (Baf in Turkish), a community with a Greek majority. He and Mr. Clerides attended the English School in Nicosia in the 1930s, an era when children of the two groups played together and even knew something of each other’s languages. His father, Raif bey Denktash, was a judge, and the young man, after university studies in Istanbul, studied law at Lincoln’s Inn, London. He had a practice in Nicosia in the late 1940s, became a crown prosecutor in 1952 and was acting solicitor general from 1956 to 1958. In the tumultuous years leading to independence, Mr. Denktash helped start a self-defense group called Volkan, which merged with a terrorist group, TMT. While he was not directly identified with any terrorist actions, he agitated for separation of the Turkish and Greek populations. He also represented Turkish Cypriots on a committee that drafted a constitution for an independent Cyprus. The agreement prohibited union with Greece (Enosis) and partition, and guaranteed civil rights for Greek and Turkish Cypriots. But independent Cyprus began with de facto separations of institutions and municipal governments. Rather than join the new central government in 1960, Mr. Denktash remained on the Turkish side, presiding over the communal authority. By 1962, he was negotiating regularly with Mr. Clerides, exchanging “Dear Glafkos” and “Dear Rauf” letters with his old friend. By 1964, after killings on both sides, United Nations peacekeepers were sent to the island, and a formal division of the island was set up in 1974, when Turkey seized the island’s northern third in response to a pro-Greek coup see...

The life of Christopher Hitchens - The Periscope Post

Mon, Dec 26, 2011
Socialist Workers’ Party, and worshipped George Orwell. His life was coloured by his mother’s fate – she had an affair with “an unfrocked vicar” and they had a suicide pact in Athens. After Oxford, he was “snapped up” by The New Statesman, and became known for “writing lurid, intemperate prose at speed.” In the ’90s, he debunked Mother Teresa (calling her “Hell’s Angel”), and denigrated the memory of Diana, Princess of Wales. Hitchens on Mother Teresa: “A lying, thieving Albanian dwarf,” quoted in The Independent. Anti-religion. He was important to the intelligentsia, said The Financial Times, because he defined areas of debate. He moved from Trotskyism to US neoconservatism. He was more interested in international affairs than national, and was dedicated to showing religion of any kind to be “at best an idiocy” and at worst “a licence to legitimise violent prejudice and repression.” A gift from God? Graydon Carter, in Vanity Fair, remembered him, somewhat ironically, as “a gift from, dare I say it, God.” He was a “man of insatiable appetites – for cigarettes, for scotch, for company, for great writing, and, above all, for conversation.” Carter recalled an episode when, having taken scotch, wine and cognac, Hitchens was set up “at a rickety table” and on “an old Olivetti, and in a symphony of clacking,” he managed to make “a 1,000 word column of near perfection in under half an hour.” He would “subject himself to any manner of humiliation” for his column – including breaking “the most niggling laws” in New York City, which resulted in him riding a bicycle with his feet off the pedals like something out of the Moscow Circus. He’ll be remembered “for his elevated but inclusive humour” and for a “staggering, almost punishing memory.” And also, “for the millions of words he left behind. They are his legacy. And, God love him, it was his will.” More on Christopher Hitchens a href="http...
