that the clade may have a very long history in that island. It is notable, however, that the distributions of Haplogroup I-M253 and Haplogroup I-M436 seem to correlate fairly well with the extent of historical influence of Germanic peoples, although the punctual presence of both haplogroups at a low frequency in the area of the historical regions of Bithynia and Galatia in Turkey rather suggests a connection with the ancient Gauls of Thrace, several tribes of which

emphasis, and highly readable. It remains among the most widespread styles. The most famous calligrapher of this genre was Hafiz Osman, an Ottoman calligrapher who lived during the 17th century. It is the basis of modern Arabic print. #'''Ṯuluṯ (Thuluth)''' is a more monumental and energetic writing style, with elongated verticals. It was used by Mamluks during the 14th-15th centuries. However the style was transformed and refined by Ottoman calligraphers. Today the masters of this style still live in Turkey including Hüseyin Kutlu and Fuat Başar #'''Tawqīʿ''' appeared under the Abbassid caliphate, when it was used to sign official acts. With elongated verticals and wide curves under the writing line, it remained a little-used script. The ''Diwani'' script is a cursive style of Arabic calligraphy developed during the reign of the early Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) Turks (Turkey) (16th and early 17th centuries). It was invented by Housam Roumi and reached its height of popularity under Süleyman I the Magnificent (1520–66). As decorative as it was communicative, ''Diwani'' was distinguished by the complexity of the line within the letter and the close juxtaposition of the letters within the word. A variation of the ''Diwani'', the ''Diwani Al Jali (Jeli Diwani)'' , is characterized by its abundance of diacritical and ornamental marks. Calligrams Calligraphy, the most Islamic of arts in the Muslim world, also has its figurative sides.

unexpectedly died due to health complications. The following fall, on October 4, 2005, ''Dark Ages (Dark Ages (album))'' was released. Many critics have described ''Dark Ages (Dark Ages (album))'' as a return to Cavalera's thrash metal roots of the early Sepultura days; however, the world metal influence found on the first four Soulfly albums is still present. In fact, this time, Cavalera traveled to five different countries — Serbia, Turkey, Russia, France, and the United States — in order to record all the sounds that he desired to have on the new album. Nayir (2001) conducted a study in Turkey to contrast the effects of circumcision and antibiotics on bacteriuria. He split 70 uncircumcised boys into 2 equal groups. One group was circumcised immediately, the other treated with antibiotics. The circumcised group were found to have a lower rate of bacteriuria per patient.

important technique

, or shading in English, hence his title “the Shadow-Painter”. Now, it may seem a little strange that shading is considered an important technique since in modern times kindergartners are taught how to shade objects. But, as recorded by the famed historian Plutarch, an inscription above one of Apollodorus' painting read, “’Tis no hard thing to reprehend me; But let the men that blame me mend me.” Plutarch. Plutarch's Morals. Trans. Several Hands. Ed. William W. Goodwin. Vol. 5. Boston: Little, Brown, and Co., 1878. The Online Library of Liberty. 2008. Liberty Fund, Inc. 26 Nov. 2008 . This can be explicated to say, “You could criticize skiagraphia more easily than you could imitate it” This type of shading is highly sophisticated and even today people struggle to master skiagraphia. Apollodorus used an intricate way of “crosshatching and the thickening of inner contour lines as well as the admixture of light and dark tones” to show a form of perspective. Though it expanded the use of perspective in the ancient Greek world, skiagraphia was most effective in the depiction of stationary objects such as drapery, fruit, or faces; making it completely useless in the painting of a body in action or a spatial setting for which perspective (Perspective (visual)) is usually used. Another one of Apollodorus' greatest accomplishments did not have to do with his actual style or technique; on the other hand, it only had to do with the medium he chose. Apollodorus could very well have been one to the first well-known artists who painted on an easel as opposed to a wall which was the common action of the day. Pollitt, Jerome Jordan. The Art of Ancient Greece : Sources and Documents. New York: Cambridge UP, 1990. 146-47. In the end, Apollodorus was responsible for much of what is considered great art by critics, even though none of what he actually painted has survived. The Yorouk to this day appear as a distinct segment of the population of Macedonia (Macedonia (region)) and Thrace where they settled as early as the 14th century. Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition - ''Macedonia:'' ''Races'' While today the Yoruk are increasingly settled, many of them still maintain their nomadic lifestyle, breeding goats and sheep in the Šar Mountains (Kosovo), the Pirin and Rhodope Mountains (Bulgaria) and Dobrudja.

'''Turkey''' (

Turkey has been inhabited since the paleolithic age (paleolithic),

Starting from the late 13th century, the Ottomans united Anatolia and created an empire encompassing much of Southeastern Europe (Southeast Europe), Western Asia and North Africa, becoming a major power in Eurasia and Africa during the early modern period. The empire reached the peak of its power between the 15th and 17th centuries, especially during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent (r. 1520–1566). After the second Ottoman siege of Vienna (Battle of Vienna) in 1683 and the end of the Great Turkish War in 1699, the Ottoman Empire entered a long period of decline (Decline of the Ottoman Empire). The Tanzimat reforms of the 19th century, which aimed to modernize the Ottoman state, proved to be inadequate in most fields, and failed to stop the dissolution of the empire (Dissolution of the Ottoman Empire).

Turkey is a democratic (democracy), secular (secular state), unitary (unitary state), constitutional republic (Republic) with a diverse cultural heritage (Multiculturalism).
