Turkey’s allies uneasy
Erdogan’s efforts to put down the protests have been met with criticism from Turkey’s allies.
“It causes me great concern when I see the use of water cannon,” the German government’s human rights commissioner, Markus Löning told the private news broadcaster NTV on Tuesday. He also reminded Ankara of its commitments to the rights of freedom of speech and to assemble freely.
“We call on the Turkish government to respect the rights of its citizens,” Löning said.
The United States, another close ally of Turkey, voiced its concerns about previous reports of violence.
“We continue to have serious concerns about the reports of excessive use of force by police and large numbers of injuries and damage to property, and welcome calls for these events to be investigated,” White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Monday.
“We also continue to urge all parties to refrain from provoking violence.

Jairo was born in 1987 in the Caribbean coastal town of Limón, Costa Rica. He was interested in sea turtles from a young age, and by his twenties was studying biology and volunteering his time protecting sea turtles from poachers and drug traffickers on Costa Rica’s otherwise tranquil beaches.
In the early morning hours of May 31, 2013, Jairo was ambushed, bound, and brutally murdered while patrolling a sea turtle nesting beach in Moin, Costa Rica. His killers have not been caught, though chances are good that Jairo knew his assassins.

Extreme weather such as drought continues to influence the success of plants even after it is over. This process goes through the soil life, and local plants seem to be more sensitive to extreme weather than exotics. Researchers from the Nematology and Soil Quality chair groups and the NIOO discovered this by exposing soils to simulated drought and floods. They published their findings on 28 May in the journal PNAS.
