From the editors

Index

Dear readers,

Biographies, 3

Here is the second issue of the ITU Writing Center online student magazine after a long break we had while welcoming our new students in the School of Foreign Languages. The previous issue was the springboard for gaining student interest this semester, and has lead to a much richer issue reflecting the wide range of student interests at our school. Before the end of this year, our students wanted to touch upon the remarkable lives of two famous journalists, Savaş Ay and Mehmet Ali Birand, who passed away this year. In addition, the issue includes an interview with a member of the Urban and Regional Planning Department and historical insight into a legendary tower of Istanbul in the middle of the Bosphorus, the Maiden’s Tower as we continue our investigation into the departments at our own university and Istanbul. The reader will also find a variety of information including popular TV series, fashion and events orchestrated by our own ITU clubs. Moreover, the issue will be a guide to the schedules for cultural events from exhibitions to concerts. In brief, there is something to appeal to the interests of every reader.

When he was in high school his father, Turan Turan, applied to the court to change their family name to "Ay". Savaş Ay read "Tin Tin" all his childhood and, inspired by these comics, decided to be a journalist.

He began his journalism career in 1974 at Dünya newpaper. After that he worked for Vatan, Tercüman, Milliyet, Sabah, Posta and Akajans. He was a columnist in Takvim. He, who was an international journalist and photographer, worked for Sipa Press. His photographs were used as a magazine cover in Time and Bunte.

In 1984, he started to work as a TV reporter. When he was a journalist and reporter, he won more than 600 awards. The most important award for him was "the journalist of the year" which was given by the Turkey Journalist Association bee writer ITU Writing Center Student Magazine

in 1992. After that, he started to produce "A Takımı" programme which is identified with Savaş Ay.

When he was fighting with throat cancer, his heart stopped and he passed away on the 24th of October, 2013.

M

ehmet Ali Birand was born to İzzet Birand and his wife Mirvet Birand on the 3rd of December, 1941. When he was 2 yearsold, he lost his father to a heart attack, so rough days began for him and his mother. He completed Galatasaray High School with his uncle's financial support.

A Closer Look at One Department

F

or this issue, we want to introduce you to Urban and Regional Planning, so we interviewed Assoc. Prof. Turgay Kerem KORAMAZ who is also a member of the Faculty Introduction Committee.

How do you define Urban and Regional Planning?

Urban and Regional Planning, which is a department in the Faculty of Architecture, is an area that determines how cities and regions will develop in the future. It is mostly described under the discipline of architecture in Turkey and Europe. This department involves study and research of all kinds like how any kind of settlement will improve in the broader sense, how it will solve problems, and how it will utilize its potential. It has become a field of study that covers various issues including social policies, economic investment and political content in the light of developments in recent years because the planning discipline, especially in the United States and the United Kingdom, introduced important studies in accordance with theories developed by geography and economy theorists. Lessons are being given under the

bee writer ITU Writing Center Student Magazine

geography faculty at some universities in the world. What is waiting for a freshman who starts in this department?

You will get lessons from various departments. Your theoretic lessons will consist of a wide range of disciplines such as geography, economy, sociology, architecture, geomatics engineering and geometric engineering. On the other hand, you will get vocational courses such as residences, conservancy areas, industrial areas and green areas.

What abilities are you expecting your students to have?

There are two important qualifications. The first one is thinking analytically. Students should have creativity and abilities of looking and seeing. For example, they should have the ability of thinking analytically in order to relate to something with all its dimensions. However, it is not an ability to have before starting education in the department because I think it is a kind of ability that people can gain over time.

The second one is being a rationalist. Reasonable proposals and solutions in accordance with planning ethics and universal values should be put forward. Of

5


course, creative thinking, satisfying diversities and being original follow it. The Urban and Regional Planning Department at ITU requires the highest score compared to the same departments at other universities in Turkey. What do you think the reason is for this?

I believe all universities should give a certain quality education. However, requiring the highest score shows that ITU is preferred by a high population. ITU has always tried to give education at a certain level of quality. I think the young population has a remarkable achievement and this ensures the progress of ITU.

How much do graduates of urban and regional planning earn? The salary which the Chamber of Urban Planners offers for new urban planners is 2500 Turkish liras. The Ministry of Development pays 4500 Turkish liras, but it requires ten years experience. The salary that is paid to urban planners is 3500 Turkish liras in municipalities

Burcu Canavar

BĂźĹ&#x;ra Merve Duman

Where can urban and regional planning graduates have the opportunity to work?

There are three main sectors. The first one is public institutions. We have a lot of graduates working for ministries, development agencies and especially municipalities. Another important sector is the real estate industry. Construction companies and many private companies dealing with real estate values and project development usually prefer employees graduating from the department of urban and regional planning. The third alternative is other sectors that make use of urban planning skills. For example, civil associations, the press or your own office can be the most popular.

The Maiden’s Tower The Legend in the Heart of the Bosphorus

T

he Maiden’s Tower, also known as The Tower of Leandros, was built in 24 BC by the Byzantine Empire. Though its mission changes frequently, its beauty has stood the same through centuries. It has been used as a cemetery, customs station, show platform, military facility among other purposes. The rulers of that age set a chain between the tower and the European shore because it was useful against the enemy ships. Also, it made it necessary for the trade ships to pass between Maiden’s Tower and Üsküdar, so the government could keep them under control more easily.

Since the building is so ancient, it has many legends connected to it. The most known one is the legend of Hero and Leandros. There was a temple which was dedicated to Aphrodite on the shores of what is now known as Üsküdar. Hero was a priestess in this temple. Her duty in there was to take care of the doves. Every spring people used to do ceremonies for the wakening of nature. Those who hadn't found love came to these ceremonies and prayed to Aphrodite to find love. In one of these ceremonies, Leandros came to this temple and saw Hero. They fell in love at first sight. Though all they wanted was to be together, there was one obstacle standing between them, marriage was bee writer ITU Writing Center Student Magazine

forbidden for Hero since she was a priestess. One day Leandros was sitting on the other side of the Bosphorus and looking at the other side with dreams of his sweet love. Then he saw the light of a torch coming from the Maiden’s Tower. He understood that this was his love calling him to the Tower. He swam all the way because he was a good swimmer. That night Hero broke her oath and they made love. In the morning he and she went their separate ways, but they never stopped meeting. Every night Hero climbed to the top of the tower with a torch and Leandros swam there using her guiding light. At the end, one night a great wind appeared and put out the light, therefore Leandros lost his way in the Bosphorus. In the morning of that night, they found his body on the shore of the other side of the tower. When Hero found out that he had died, she decided that she could not live without him and threw herself from the top of the tower to the cold waters of the Bosphorus.

There are actually many more legends about The Maiden’s Tower such as the one with Nazım Hikmet or Battal Gazi or the one with the snakes. Their truth is open to argument since they’re not historical facts.

The Maidens’s Tower in the 21st century has a different purpose. From now on you can eat your dinner there while enjoying the gorgeous view of the Bosphorus. Furthermore, transportation to the Maiden’s Tower is simple. There are boats sailing to Maiden’s Tower from Salacak and Üsküdar.

Popular TV Series

W

e all grow up watching Hollywood films. We watched them on TV and in theaters. I can remember the times we rented movies from stores to watch, but that all went away since the Internet became more popular. Now we are able to watch films on our computers by downloading them. Besides, the rise of the Internet brought us other benefits. We can all watch the American and European series easily. I believe it affects us more than films for those who follow more than one series loyally because we watch them every week. Sometimes we can even watch series that aren’t airing anymore. These series give us the opportunity to improve our English skills as well as the chance to be entertained.

Nowadays, some of these series have become very popular. We can split them into two categories. One is approximately 20 minutes per episode. These kinds of series are usually sit-coms, such as “How I Met Your Mother”, “The Big Bang Theory” and so on. There are also some sit-coms bee writer ITU Writing Center Student Magazine

that have finished, but are called legends, such as “Friends” or “Seinfeld," by their former audience. The other kind has more types of series actually. They are usually 45 minutes per episode and they can be fictional, tragic or many other genres.

In the fictional category, “Game of Thrones” is the most popular one. It takes place in a fictional world and tells about the intrigue between four families who want to possess the “Iron Throne”.

We can also mention “The Walking Dead” as a fictional series which tells the story of a sheriff, Rick Grimes, and his group’s life during a zombie apocalypse. “Supernatural” includes the story of two brothers fighting against monsters, devils, vampires and even angels to save humanity and take their vengeance for their parents.

9


The other series that just finished is “Dexter”. It tells the story of a serial killer named Dexter, who only kills other killers.

There are also other series which are not fictional, such as “Spartacus”. It’s the story of a gladiator who lived under the shadow of Rome. However, he couldn’t accept slavery as an option and he started a riot against the empire. Its story is based on some true events. History books call him the first revolutionary.

Another non-fictional series is “Breaking Bad”. It finished not long ago. It is the story of a chemistry teacher who learns that he has cancer and he will have a baby soon, so he decides to cook methamphetamine, which is a drug, to leave his family a large amount of money. When he starts cooking, it appears that he can produce the purest meth and he makes tons of money as the Heisenberg.

Possibly the biggest legend because of its age is “Doctor Who”. This series is about an alien who has a ship called “Tardis” which is able to travel through the space and time. This series has been going on since 1963. “The Doctor” has changed 11 times.

These series can be chosen according to the tastes of the audiences. There are many series and that means many options which give us an alternative to films. You can choose and enjoy according to your tastes

Anticipated Collaboration: H&M and ISABEL MARANT

A

s we all may agree, fashion has become a big industry even though it targets people with high incomes. However, there are still many options out for people with modest budgets since there are many very fashionable, yet reasonably priced brands. One of these is H&M. H&M has grown from a local clothing shop to a worldwide retailer, and their latest collaboration with one of the biggest names of Paris has created a tremendous impression over many pursuers of fashion. Has this bonding step between high-end consumers and middle-income people been successful and lucrative?

What this collaboration aims to achieve is to share the prosperous collection of Isabel Marant with a wider and more diverse public. We can interpret this from Isabel Marant’s words, “This collaboration with H&M was a very nice opportunity to redo what I love in my collections and share this love with a wider public.” Marant’s signature ethnic beaded cardigan tops are at the most $400, but most of the 53 pieces range between $50 and $200. This price range seems to be totally ideal for modest budgets of people who want to look simply elegant. It is a great opportunity to have some tasteful clothing in our wardrobes with reasonable prices. bee writer ITU Writing Center Student Magazine

To continue with some more specific details on the collection, it is elegant but also original as a result of Isabel Marant’s initial style and perspective of fashion. Black and white colours are predominantly used on all 53 pieces. In addition, a voluminous style is chiefly used. Slim pants and tights are often used in combinations for men. Ethnic and partly ethnic designs are preferred. These properties align with Isabel Marant’s usual style of fashion, so it is impressive to see these valuable artful pieces in nearby H&M shops.

To sum up, after all the build up, I think the collection has fulfilled our expectations. Even though it may be seen as “too futuristic and modern” from some people’s perspectives, it is worth giving it a shot and at least trying it out in nearby H&M stores.

Theater Events in December

I

stanbul is giving us many chances for seeing a play. December will be a very busy month for the theaters. I will give you a few examples. Moda Theater has been opened recently. It is hosting two striking plays; “Hamlet” and “Bütün Çılgınlar Sever Beni”. "Hamlet" is a famous play which was written by Shakespeare. Onur Ünsal, Esra Kızıldoğan, Kübra Kip and İnan Ulaş Torun are starring in this play.

“Bütün Çılgınlar Sever Beni” is a lovely play. Mert Fırat, Aslı Tandoğan and Volkan Yosunlu are acting in the play. They try to tell us about 'Love'. A man who does not trust his wife ruffles their life, so the play is started by the man.

Another one is “Aşk’a 103 Adım” which has been put on the stage successfully for two years by Tiyatrokare. It has amazing acting, too. It stars Özge Özberk, Bülent Seyran, Umran Ertok, Koray Kurt and Suna Keskin. The play, which asks us if marriage kills love,causes gales of laughter. If you want to laugh, you must see this performance. However, don't forget it is not just a comedy. They usually act on the Profilo Stage, but sometimes they stage it at different theaters. It will be on stage from December 8th to January 19th. You can find the tickets on Biletix.

You can see both of them in December. They will start again on the 5th and 7th of December and continue until the end of the month. Ticket prices are 25 Turkish Liras.

The Social Media Prizes (SMP)

CATEGORIES

What are the Social Media Prizes?

Blog

SMP, which was organized by ITU MEC in 2010, was the first organization about social media in Turkey. In previous years, lots of mediums and famous people joined SMP, so it took a place in the Twitter Trend Topics List.

Before the SMP, a lot of agents and internet users propose some candidates and social media experts consider their suggestions. Later, people vote for their candidates who are determined by social media experts. When the voting period comes to an end, winners are announced. In the finishing SIT night, the winners take their own prize.

Social Media is becoming the most important source of information because lots of people easily retrieve information from it and its cost is very cheap. The people write, watch, listen and read whatever and whenever they want. Thus, the entire world uses it for everything.

This year SMP has 12 categories and these categories are below.
