ANKARA Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has praised the Supreme Election Board (YSK) decision to hold a re-run mayoral election in Istanbul, calling the March 31 elections in the metropolis “shady.” “It has been the best decision for the elections, which have become controversial in its every stage from the polling clerks to the process of filing the votes to the registry,” Erdoğan said in a speech at an award ceremony and fast-breaking iftar dinner held by the Ankara Chamber of Commerce on May 9. “There is corruption, irregularity here, thus [the mayoral election] will be done over,” he said. The president said he would appreciate Ekrem İmamoğlu, candidate of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) - who was announced winner of the March 31 mayoral election before the cancellation - “if these stains had not been uncovered.” The metropolitan mayoral election is scheduled for June 23, according … [Read more...] about Election board ruling is best for Istanbul: Erdoğan

But despite these welcome changes in gender equality, motherhood has become one of the most scrutinised parts of a … [Read more...] about Breast is not always best for mothers
Jefferson Graham USA TODAY Published 1:47 PM EDT Apr 1, 2019 LOS ANGELES — "Alexa, what music should I listen to?" It's an interesting question that follows up with Amazon's Alexa asking follow-ups, one of the few times the personal assistant gets really conversational and makes suggestions. Alexa, via Amazon Music, gave me options: the late, legendary gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt or singers Adele or James Taylor. I went for Django, and with that, my personal DJ robot had followed through successfully, finding three artists I love. Such it is with music commands for personal assistants. You can ask Alexa, Siri and the Google Assistant to be your personal DJ, and most times, it can turn out really well. The AI knows your listening history, even one that's as eclectic as mine, so if I listen to a lot of jazz and classical, with a mix of classic rock, it knows, and will respond accordingly. The key is knowing what to ask, and refining … [Read more...] about Google Assistant, Alexa, Siri: Which is best for finding music I want?
