With this new post of POW, I want to thank all of you reader for giving me the courage to continue further forward after only one month of launching POW in it’s
International and local lebanese version, along with the new section “ That ain’t right“.
Back to “reality”,
This week post, might be somehow similar to the one of last week, especially that there is the
syrian issue still ongoing, and the turkish protests.
You will notice that i’m trying hard not to include any harmful images, but also send you reader some good photos.
on the turkish level, yes, there is more than one photo, but I think they are worth being part of POW.
Don’t forget, after taking a look at the images to leave me a comment, or a suggestion maybe on how to improve POW more and more :).

Yanukovich pressed the European Union on Thursday to conclude a milestone political and trade deal with Ukraine this year but he gave no ground on a key EU demand that he free jailed opponent Yulia Tymoshenko. Yanukovich made his call in a state-of-the-nation address issued in text form only, stirring the anger of pro-Tymoshenko lawmakers who demanded he appear in person to deliver it.
