Dear Türkiye Bursları,
We have many questions in our minds that really stress out all of us to the point that we cannot focus on anything else since the new decision about accommodation was reveled:
1. What does each option entail? and what are the guarantees?
2. How many of us KYK dormitories will take considering that YTB will have a quota and that it will be for undergraduate students? And what will happen to those who apply for KYK dormitories and get a negative answer?
3. KYK supported foundation dorms of the list you sent us are starting from 700TL per month and above.. what is your plan concerning this? and does YTB have any kind of agreement with them?
4. Students in big cities who already strated looking for apartments to rent are surprised by the high real estate index (more than 1650TL in Istanbul on the 16th of August). And even for sharing flats: rent fees + bills + food is at least 800TL per month without mentioning the deposit that varies from an apartment to the other. There is also the time and efforts it takes to find the right apartment for rent and to find the right flatmates. We also need to point out here that a big number of the students are in their countries at the moment. How can YTB help us with all this?
You said that the aim of those kind of policy changes is to raise the quality of the services and to raise satisfaction to the highest level, we choose to believe in you when we left our countries, our familes, whole lives and came to embrace this experience and to be a part of the Turkiye Bursları family and we want to keep believing in you but if you want to help us with this we suggest that :
1. Adapting the new policy should be optional for the students.
2. The accomadation support amount should be doubled for the graduate students in big cities.
3. The application of the new policy for those who selected it starts after one semester.
We hope and we believe that you will understand and feel us, and consider all the pressure we go through.
We invite you to read our requests this time, and each of you imagines that it is a letter from his /her expatriate child.

Currently, West Virginia teachers in all 55 counties are striking due to rising health insurance costs and low pay. The work stoppage affects teachers, students, parents, and the efficient functioning of a day to day operations of an educational system. We would like to see this situation resolved. Here is the proposal that we ask for teachers, service personnel, public employees, and citizens to sign. These specific ideas are a framework we would like to take to members of the legislature:
1. Reverse PEIA changes to pre 2014-2015 coverage: We propose the legislature approve a measure that would have PEIA revert to its policies from the 2014-2015 fiscal year until a long-term solution can be found. We want a commitment to find a dedicated revenue stream for PEIA into the future and the flexibility to meet the increasing costs of medical care.
2. Investigate PEIA fraud and eliminate wasteful spending: Wasteful spending occurs at all levels of government, and we would ask the legislature to find misuse and abuse of funds, which would contribute to long term savings.
3. Increase taxes on alcohol and / or tobacco products: We propose increasing the sales tax on alcohol 6% to 7.5%. We propose increasing the excise tax on beer production from $5.50 per 31 gallon barrel to $6.00 per 31 gallon barrel. This particular excise tax has not changed since 1951. We propose an increase on cigarettes from $1.20 per pack to $1.75 per pack.
4. Provide public employees with a 3% raise this year, 1% the following year, and 1% the next year: Teacher pay in West Virginia ranks 48th out of 50 states. In 2014, the legislature made a goal to increase starting pay of a teacher to $43,000 by 2019. No action has been taken with regard to this particular goal.
5. Drop punitive bills aimed at weakening teacher unions: The legislature has bills drafted that would eliminate teacher seniority, require annual permission from teachers before unions could draft dues, and lowering standards for teacher certification. These bills will not help the education system in West Virginia.Read more
A RESOLUTION FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH AND MARKET STABILITY.
ITS SIMPLE AND WONT VIOLATE SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS.
EVERY SINGLE DAY, SPEND AN HOUR YOUR CAR, OR OTHER MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION, DRIVING. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO ANYWHERE OR DO ANYTHING SPECIFIC. JUST GO SOMEWHERE FOR THE TRIP ITSELF. DEMAND GROWTH WILL OCCUR IN A GREENSPANEAN RESPONSE TO A SUPPLY GLUT OF ALL HYDROCARBONS.
FIRE, AS A MEANS OF CREATING SCARCITY OF SUPPLY COUPLED WITH ACTUAL DEMAND WILL NORMALIZE MARKET CONDITIONS AND “ FLATTEN THE CURVE, ” (FANCY WAY OF SAYING PRODUCTION OF SUPPLY GETS CLOSER TO EQUILIBRIUM WITH ACTUAL DEMAMD).WHEREBY SUPPLY EQUALS DEMAND SO AS THERE IS NO SUPPLY IN EXCESS OF OVERALL DEMAND. WE, AS A COMMON PEOPLE (CONSUMERS AND MARKET PARTICIPANTS), ARE OBLIGATED TO CONSUME ALL AVAILABLE SUPPLY IN EXCESS OF CURRENT SUPPLY STORAGE AVAILABILITY AS TO INFLUENCE PRICE INCREASES IN THE PRODUCTS UTILIZED. BURN AS MUCH GASOLINE AND DISTILLATES AS POSSIBLE, AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. FLAMMABLE HYDROCARBONS HAVE THE UNIQUE UNIQUE ABILITY TO ABIDE BY THE GREENSPAN METHOD BY VIRTUE OF HOW THEY ARE TYPICALLY USED.
In response to the housing crisis circa 2008:
Greenspan suggested that there was too much housing supply and that the only real way to really fix the problem would be for the government to buy up vacant homes and burn them,

Small business owners need your help! Social based & non essential small businesses are doing their part for a healthy Canada and closing their doors to promote self isolation and social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the impact to owners can and will be devastating. Small business in Canada makes up 90% of the economy. Most of these businesses pay monthly leases. Leases that are dependent on foot traffic. While the addition of EI support is a lovely gesture, the reality is these amounts are not close to the monthly operating costs of our businesses. The governments of Ontario and Canada have tried to keep the masses content, but small business owners have gone without. Everyday we are waiting for our government to announce a fair solution that will help us. We have invested our savings and time, we have created jobs, we are a large part of our communities. It would be devastating to have these businesses shut their doors forever. Another loan is not what we need. We have loans. We have loan payments. Approving loans for us now will only set us up for future failure.
Mr. Premier & Mr. Prime Minister, please call for the pause of all lease payments for these businesses who are doing their part to ensure the safety of Canadians during this pandemic. Read more

Wagga Council's made the extraordinary decision to evict dozens of homeless people from Wilks Park - at the coldest point of winter and for unfounded reason/s
As a community that has come together showing the people currently using Wilks Park as a refuge, that we as a community are willing and wanting to offer support and help them as much as we can.
Council members behind their desks, in their comfortable chairs and in their heated offices, making the decision and signing off to evict the people of Wilks Park, without meeting or even talking to those seeking refuge there. Not knowing their stories or what has lead them to be in these dire circumstances, who are already suffering and struggling on so many fronts.
Our questions to you council members are......
What are you doing to help the people of not only Wilks Park but so many others going through similar circumstances here and in surrounding communities?
How is forcing them to leave, helping them?
Who are they hurting?
What are your plans to help get these people the help and support they need and into permanent and safe housing?
What are you doing to reduce the number of homelessness in our community?
To our community: are we going to allow this council to do this to the people of Wilks Park and so many others? They are apart of our community and need our help!Read more
