Augustus' death in AD 14, but it was probably written years earlier and likely went through many revisions. Eck, W. (Werner Eck) (2007) ''The age of Augustus''. 2nd edn. Oxford: Blackwell, p. 169. ISBN 978-1-4051-5149-8 Augustus left the text with his will, which instructed the Senate (Roman Senate) to set up the inscriptions. The original, which has not survived, was engraved upon a pair of bronze pillars and placed in front of Augustus' mausoleum (Mausoleum of Augustus). Many copies of the text were made and carved in stone on monuments or temples throughout the Roman Empire, some of which have survived; most notably, almost a full copy, written in the original Latin and a Greek (Greek language) translation was preserved on a temple to Augustus in Ancyra (the ''Monumentum Ancyranum'' of Ankara, Turkey); others have been found at Apollonia (Sozopolis, Pisidia) and Antioch (Antioch, Pisidia), both in Pisidia. * June 28, 2004 – Macdona, Texas, United States, near San Antonio (San Antonio, Texas): 4 people die and 51 are injured when a Union Pacific Railroad train fails to stop at a signal and collides with another train, causing lethal chlorine gas to leak out of a train car.

to the cabinet. In a parallel effort of promoting the country's touristic popularity in the west, Topkapi (film), the movie version of the book by Eric Ambler that had been commissioned for the same purpose was shot in Paris and Istanbul and was introduced with success. Similarly, one of the most favorite books of John F. Kennedy, Ian Fleming's "From Russia with Love" was shot in Istanbul as the second James Bond movie, to promote turistic popularity of Turkey, with his keen interest. The Directorate of Religious Affairs network of the country was founded with his directive and became operational on 22 June 1965. He started the new procedure of returning the law proposals presented for the President's approval back to the Parliamentary re-discussions in 1963. Cemal Gürsel founded The National Security Council (National Security Council (Turkey)) (MGK) as well as the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) in 1963, appointing Professor Cahit Arf as its first director, officially charging TUBITAK primarily with governmental advisory duty by legislation. In addition to the foundation of the Turkish Radio and Television (TRT) organization as a government agency in 1964 that brought the television broadcast to Turkey for the first time under his administration, the opening of The School of Press and Broadcasting at the College of Political Sciences in Ankara followed in November 1965. The country's new initiative of Planning of Population Growth Control was put in effect in 1965. The production of the first domestic Turkish automobile, Devrim (Revolution), took place with Cemal Gürsel's directive which sparked the initiation of an automotive industry in the republic in the following few years. The first use of a computer in the country, iron and steel mass production growth, the thermic power plant and a petrol pipeline structuring took place during his presidency. Cemal Gürsel refused remuneration for his Head of State and subsequent President positions and made his and his family's living with his retired general's salary, meeting their own expenses during their life in the Presidential Palace (Çankaya Köşkü) in Çankaya, Ankara. Illness Because of a paralysis that started in early 1961 and progressed quickly in 1966, Cemal Gürsel was flown 2 February to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C on the private airplane "BlueBird" sent by US President (President of the United States) Lyndon B. Johnson. One week later, he fell into a coma there after suffering a series of new paralytic strokes. The government decided he return to Turkey on 24 March. In addition to issuing the following statement, President Johnson went by helicopter from the White House to Andrews Air Force Base, Maryland, near Washington, D.C., to pay his respects to President Cemal Gürsel on his departure to home. 'Our distinguished friend, President Cemal Gursel of Turkey, came to the United States on February 2 for medical treatment. There was hope that new therapeutic procedures only recently developed in this country would be useful in treating his illness of several years. We were initially encouraged by his progress at Walter Reed Hospital, only to be shocked by the news on February 8 that his health had suffered a grave new blow. Our best talent, coupled with the skill of the eminent Turkish doctors who accompanied the President, was exerted to the utmost in the hope that the President might return to his home in fully restored health. We are saddened that this hope was not to be realized. We have been deeply honored to have President Gursel come to our country to seek medical treatment. As he returns to his homeland, our prayers go with him'. With a report of a medical committee by Gülhane Military Hospital in Ankara, the parliament ruled on 28 March 1966 that his presidency be terminated due to ill health in accordance with the constitution. He died of apoplexy at 0645hrs on 14 September 1966 in Ankara. He left behind no directives or last will. He was laid to rest at the "Freedom Martyrs Memorial" section in the yard of the mausoleum of Atatürk (Anıtkabir). His body was transferred on 27 August 1988 to a permanent burial place in the newly built Turkish State Cemetery. Commons:Ankara Wikipedia:Ankara Dmoz:Regional Middle East Turkey Provinces Ankara

It is the center of the Turkish Government (Politics of Turkey), and an important commercial and industrial city. Located in Central Anatolia, Ankara is an important crossroads of trade, strategically located at the center of Turkey's highway and railway networks, and serves as the marketing center for the surrounding agricultural area. The city is traditionally famed for its long-haired Angora goat and its prized wool (mohair), a unique breed of cat (Angora cat (Turkish Angora)), Angora rabbits and their prized Angora wool, pears, honey, and the region's muscat (muscat (grape and wine)) grapes.

Ankara is a very old city with various Hittite (Hittites), Phrygian, Hellenistic (Hellenistic civilization), Roman (Roman Empire), Byzantine (Byzantine Empire), and Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) archaeological sites. The hill which overlooks the city is crowned by the ruins of the old castle, which adds to the picturesqueness of the view, but only a few historic structures surrounding the old citadel have survived to the present day. There are, however, many well-preserved remains of Ottoman (Ottoman architecture) and Roman architecture, the most remarkable being the Temple of Augustus and Rome (20 BC) which is also known as the ''Monumentum Ancyranum''.
