Veliye Martı’s “Cyprus Chest Motifs Writing Patterns Exhibition” will be opened by the TRNC President Ersin Tatar at the Near East University Atatürk Culture and Congress Center Exhibition Hall

The “Cyprus Chest Motifs Writing Patterns Exhibition”, prepared by Veliye Martı, who carries the chest motifs, one of the important cultural symbols of Cyprus, to the present with the writings she designed, will be opened by President Ersin Tatar on Monday, 2 August, at the Near East University Atatürk Culture and Congress Center Exhibition Hall. Being the 377th exhibition hosted by the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts, the “Cyprus Chest Motifs Writing Patterns Exhibition” will be open to visitors until 15 August. In the exhibition, which will reveal the motifs that Veliye Marti has extracted from the Cyprus chests, the mold works that enable these motifs to be processed into traditional manuscripts will also meet with art lovers. Geometric patterns in Paphos, hanging plants in Lapta… Stating that many cultures are blended and spread in Cyprus, which is affected by many cultures due to its geographical location, Artist Velide Martı said, “Cyprus Chests, which have a rich variety of motifs, are anonymous, with a few exceptions, and it is not known by whom they were made. There are neither the names of the persons who made them nor a date on them. Carrying the energy of the calloused hands and tired but enthusiastic hearts of the masters, the patterns on these chests differ in accordance with the cultural aspects of the regions, so today they are referred to by the names of the regions where they were made. For example, while geometric patterns were used in Paphos chests, the craftsmen from Lapta used Roman arches and hanging plants in their chests.” Who is Veliye Martı? Veliye Martı, who stands out as one of the most important names that preserves and sustains the art of printmaking, was born in Trabzon. She studied writing art at the workshop of his teacher Mehmet Hamdi Eyüboğlu, who is the contemporary representative of this art, in 1990. While studying at Eyüboğlu workshop, she also curated the exhibition of his master Eyüboğlu. She also curated the writing exhibitions held in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Silk garments designed using the motifs of Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu were also included in her exhibitions. After learning printing and design techniques at Eyüboğlu’s workshop, Martı desired to carry out research on traditional writing art and give this kind of art a contemporary identity in line with the tradition, and set off on Anatolian roads in pursuit of traditional motifs. She carried out studies and examinations in important regions in the printing industry. Studying in accordance with the master-apprentice tradition in different periods in a period of three years, she gained experience from the studies of Hüseyin Er and Ömer Gıcık, who are among the important masters of Tokat. In 2002, she founded the Seagull Writing Workshop in Kadıköy. In 2004, with the contributions of TESVA (Turkish Handicrafts Foundation), she moved the Seagull Writing Workshop to the Sultanahmet Little Hagia Sophia region. In 2007, upon the invitation of the TRNC Ministry of Culture, she gave seminars in Nicosia, Kyrenia and Famagusta Vocational High Schools. In 2010, she gave a course on “Wood Mold Carving and Writing” within the scope of the “EU LEARNING-Business Incubators for the Development of Creativity and Entrepreneurship in Historical Centers” project of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality. In 2012, she opened her first solo exhibition, Cyprus Chest Motifs, in Nicosia. She gave 160 hours of “Traditional Writing” training at the EU (European Union) supported Şile Women’s Community Center in 2012-2013. In 2015, she opened the exhibition titled “Traces of Women in Anatolia” at Istanbul-Tünel Adahan Gallery under the sponsorship of Sahi-Istanbul. She still continues her project, education and research studies at her workshop in Little Hagia Sophia.

NEURec, developed by Near East University, offers the opportunity to control all electronic devices from a single address through touchscreen, biometric and voice commands

Due to the developing technologies, our lives are surrounded by electronic devices in every aspect of our lives. Many of the electronic devices used at homes and offices for lighting, air conditioning, cleaning, entertainment and many other needs can be controlled through phone applications and remote controls that allow remote access. However, this creates a serious confusion. Mobile phones, are full of with different applications installed for each device while homes and offices are overflowing with remote controls that are constantly disappearing. You are in control with the electro-control smart device NEUREc!

Foreign objects swallowed by cats and dogs can risk their lives!

Foreign objects swallowed by dogs and cats can have life-threatening serious consequences. While the cases of swallowing bones, socks and buckles are common in dogs, cats mostly swallow sewing needles and thread. Although the games of cats and dogs using the surrounding objects are a source of joy, they can sometimes cause situations that can threaten their lives. Foreign object ingestion in dogs and cats is a frequently encountered situation, especially in young animals, and often requires urgent intervention. In the most common foreign body ingestion cases in dogs, bones, socks and buckles come to the fore; In cats, sewing needles and threads are more common. In cases where the patient owners can notice this situation, treatment can be provided without serious complications with rapid diagnosis and intervention. Symptoms may take several hours or months to appear. Member of Near East University Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Surgery and Near East University Animal Hospital physician Prof. Dr. A. Perran Gökçe says that clinical symptoms in animals ingesting foreign objects can be seen in a period ranging from a few hours to months. The most common symptoms include persistent vomiting, excessive salivation (salivation), retching, loss of appetite, restlessness, inability to defecate or less defecation. “Patient owner should apply to the veterinarian without wasting time when he notices these symptoms,” said Prof. Dr. Gökçe, and added, “In delayed cases, the patient may become weak with vomiting, decrease in body condition and general condition deterioration. It can also cause inflammation of the peritoneum by causing blockages, mucosal damage and perforations in the esophagus, stomach and intestines with swallowed foreign objects. Following this, the patient may go into septic shock and die.” Full-fledged animal hospitals save lives Stating that it is very important for veterinarians to be informed by patient owners, Prof. Dr. A. Perran Gökçe said “Does he have a lost toy at home, has he swallowed a foreign object before? After the information received, the clinical examination of the patient is performed. Linear foreign bodies such as threads can be observed during oral examination. The abdominal region is also examined by hand and it is observed whether the patient reacts due to pain. It may also be necessary to use direct-indirect radiography, ultrasonography and endoscopy for diagnosis. Therefore, it is of great importance to intervene in such cases in full-fledged animal hospitals. Surgical intervention may be required “The structure and location of the detected foreign object allow us to decide on the treatment method,” said Prof. Dr. Gökçe and added; “According to the structure and location of the object; It is decided whether to apply medical treatment, surgical intervention or endoscopy. Medical treatment can be applied by using stool softener and lubricating drugs for smooth foreign objects that are thought to be able to pass through the intestines. However, in this case, the patient should be x-rayed every day and if there is no change in the position of the foreign object for 24 hours, surgical intervention should be decided quickly. Delaying the treatment increases the risk of perforation in the intestine and stomach region. “Immediate surgical intervention is required in cases where perforation has occurred,” saying Prof. Dr. A. Perran Gökçe, added; “The presence of blood in the vomit or stool suggests that the foreign body causes mucosal ulceration. If severe mucosal damage is detected, the patient should be fasted for 24-48 hours. In addition, the general condition of the animal should be examined, blood tests should be done intermittently, and intravenous fluids should be given to patients who are not fed orally. Prof. Dr. Gökçe warns animal owners not to “give disproportionate bone fragments or toy materials that may be swallowed, which may put their animal’s life at risk.”

Middle ear fluid retention, which is very common in preschool childhood, can cause hearing loss in your child.

If your child turns up the volume of the TV too much, watches it closely or repeats it several times when you call, he may be suffering from painless otitis media. Especially if you have a child who has frequent upper respiratory tract infections, has complaints of nasal congestion, sleeps with his mouth open, or snores, there is a high probability of fluid retention in his/her middle ear. Near East University Hospital Department of otorhinolaryngology Specialist Dr. Remzi Tınazlı gave information about middle ear fluid retention in preschool childhood, its reasons, the importance of early detection in treatment and treatment methods. A common disease in children The middle ear cavity is normally filled with air, and the pressure of this air should be equal to the air pressure in the outside environment. The air pressure in the middle ear and the air pressure in the external environment are equalized by the Eustachian tube, which acts as aeration between our nasal passages and the middle ear behind our nose. This pipe is normally closed. During swallowing and opening and closing movements of our jaw, the Eustachian tube opens and the pressure is equalized. The pressure sensation we feel in our ears when experiencing sudden altitude differences on an airplane or in the mountains develops due to the inability to equalize the external ambient pressure with the middle ear pressure before this system has the opportunity to function. When we have a cold, our ears can be blocked by the same mechanism. Particularly in preschool childhood, fluid retention in the middle ear, called serous otitis in medicine, is a very common disease. Causes such as adenoid size and shorter and straighter Eustachian tube in children than adults, allergic structure and frequent upper respiratory tract infections can be counted. In the early stages of the disease, a mild hearing loss begins in the child. There are symptoms of nasal congestion such as sleeping with your mouth open, turning the volume of the television up or watching the television closely, not being able to hear what the teacher says in the lessons, and a constant runny nose. Families may not always notice these complaints. Most of the time, the child’s low hearing is noticed by the teachers at the school. Can be treated with early treatment If fluid retention in the middle ear can be diagnosed in the early period, it can be treated through appropriate treatment for the cause. The problem can often be eliminated with drug treatments for 2-3 weeks. However, in cases of an adenoid size that causes obstruction of the Eustachian tube and in cases where drug treatment does not work, surgical treatment is required and the result is extremely satisfactory. Permanent hearing impairments may occur due to frequent middle ear infections in untreated, delayed conditions and due to negative pressure in the eardrum and collapse of the membrane. Always consult a specialist when you suspect your hearing loss. In cases of fluid retention in the middle ear, there are no complaints such as ear pain, fever or ear discharge. Complaints such as a decrease in the success of the child in lessons, restlessness, deterioration of relations with friends, and balance disorder can sometimes appear as the main complaints. All of these are due to hearing loss, which occurs due to the difference between the pressure in the middle ear and the pressure in the external environment. Thus, it is necessary for parents to take their children, who they suspect to have hearing loss, to an otolaryngologist. Treatment method The otolaryngologist will investigate what caused the disease and apply treatment for the cause. Since runny nose and adenoid enlargement are very common in these children, they should also be evaluated in terms of allergies. Ventilation tube surgery, which is placed in the eardrum due to fluid collection in the middle ear, is a frequently performed operation that corrects hearing. The inserted tube often comes out on its own after a period of 6 months, and there is no need for a second intervention. In order not to cause permanent hearing impairment in the future, not to leave our children behind their peers, to prevent them from failing in school, one should be alert about hearing and consult a doctor before it’s too late.

The exhibition of ceramic works depicting the traces of ancient galleys of Lycia will meet art lovers at the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts.

Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts is getting ready to host the “Lycian Penteconters and Apollons Ceramics Exhibition after a 2000-Year Journey”. “Lycian Penteconters and Apollons Ceramics Exhibition”, consisting of the works of Alanya Alaaddin Keykubat University Lecturer Serdar Aslan, will meet with art lovers at the Near East University Atatürk Cultural Center Exhibition Hall on August 2 at another unique art exhibition hosted by the Cyprus Museum of Modern Arts. The works prepared by the artist and academician Serdar Aslan during a four-year study sized up the possible appearances of the 5th century BC Lycian penteconters (Ancient Greek galleys). The artifacts, which were shaped with ceramic clay and heated at 900 degrees Celsius, took their final form by being colored with silver pigment. The works are inspired by Lycian and Apollon coins. Stating that the ancient galley depictions on Lycian coins impressed the creation of penteconters used in Lycia in the 5th century BC, Serdar Aslan said, “Other remarkable examples are on Apollon coins. On the front of the Apollo coins, there is the interpretation of the human head depicted in profile, depicting the characteristic Apollo elements, and on the back, there are ancient galleys (penteconters) shaped from the starboard part. The names of high-ranking civil servants of the period can be seen under the penteconters. Original works were positioned with a free stance. Ancient galley pieces shaped with ceramic clay and heated at 900 degrees Celsius and colored with silver pigment, and figurines depicting magistrates, high-ranking civil servants of the period, were positioned in a free stance on irregular pedestals in the exhibition area. Serdar Aslan commented on this composition as follows; “This expression, which is interpreted with an unrestricted artistic point of view, is a reaction to stereotypes.” Who is Serdar Aslan? Born in Istanbul in 1980, Serdar Aslan completed his undergraduate education at Akdeniz University and his master’s degree at Dokuz Eylül University, Faculty of Fine Arts, Ceramics Department. Serdar Aslan, who continues his PhD studies at Near East University, Social Sciences Institute, Art and Design Department, participated in many national and international exhibitions, biennials and symposiums, especially in Austria, Germany, France, Spain, Latvia, Italy and EXPO 2016 Antalya.
