Be Careful In Cyber World

Disconnect is a kind of a really truly scary film. It’s not in a traditional way of ghost, supernatural, blood, or violence. It’s scary because it is so real. When you fall deep into this movie, you might be need a shower after seeing it. I feel unsafe after seeing the whole film, especially seeing stories on the sad couple and the cyber bullied boy. 

IMG_1271In those character, the son disconnects with his father, the wife disconnects with his husband, and the underage disconnects with the society. They all struggle in a unreal cyber world then get hurts.

The movie shows some cyber crimes in todays wired world. Here are 3 stories in 1 movie, that is cyber bullying, identity theft, and underage cyber sex.

A teenage loner is tormented because of fake identity; A hacker thefts a couples identity and savings; A local TV journalist interviews a underage sex offers online.

As the lines of this film write ‘everything you do, someone out there can see.’ Someone you don’t know is watching and tracking you online. He can record your personal info., read your emails and you Facebook updates, track your web browsing actives, even get your passwords, credit card information, and bank account. That’s horrible! It’s like we are naked in the internet!

So how can we protect ourselves in the internet? Here are 3 tips help us protect our privacy.

21 . Most public Wifi connections are not secured, avoid using public wifi to access to your private account.

2 . Pay attention to what you share on social networking sites, remove sensitive information on your account profiles, protect and secure your identity.

3 . Do not share sensitive and private information about your home address, location, and etc. which help criminals target you.

Hope we all safe!

Does Social Media Really Make the World “WORST”?

Social network has been affected the minds of teenagers nowadays. Teenagers are mostly on the Internet and this is really changing theirs communication pathway with others. They are now loosing how to communicate with each other in their real life. And this becomes one of the major problems nowadays since teenagers don’t know how to use all social media in the right way.

Disconnect 1

A few days ago, I decided to watch the movie, DISCONNECT, that our professor assigned. So I decided to change a topic in my blog this time. Here, I will write my own opinion about one sub-story in this movie. It’s going to be about the social media in teenagers.


Ben boydThe story is about two boys, which have really different personality. Ben Boyd, he is very lonely and sensitive teen musician. Ben always tells himself that his family never supports him since his dad is a lawyer so he thinks his dad sees him as a silly son. His sister also tries to treat him as an idiot. So Ben becomes an introvert. He always spends his time with no one and only music. JasonOn the other hands, Jason Dixon, he has his lifestyle as a normal teenager but deep inside in his mind he also feel lonesome. Jason’s dad is a police so his dad set so many rules so he thinks he kind of always in jail. So that make Jason becomes a bad boy who has a sensitive mind.

One day, Jason and his best friend, Frye, decide to make fun with Ben. They create a fake Facebook account named “Jessica Rhony” and use this account to flirt Ben. Ben finally makes a digital love connection with this fake Jessica. But this lead Jason has a chance to talk with Ben about their family situation and they seem to understand each other. But in the real world, Jason still has to bully Ben since this is Jason and Frye’s purpose of making this account. After awhile, this thing become worse and worse. So Ben decides to hang himself and end up with coma. After that Ben’s parents try to find a cause of this situation. The story keeps go on until they know that the main reason of this whole story is about the “FAMILY”

Disconnect 3

Do you still think that social media make the world worst? I think social media can make this world smarter and smarter if we know how to use it properly. Like this story, it is not a social media’s fault. The problem was caused by the sick minds of their own, the family and the carelessness with other.


New high-tech glasses promise to bring color to the colorblind

Some 300 million people around the world are colorblind and unable to distinguish colors, in particular red and green.

Color For the Colorblind’ is a short documentary produced by paint and coatings industry giant Valspar about the results of a partnership with EnChroma to help people with color blindness experience color for the first time. EnChroma makes glasses specially designed to help colorblind people perceive and discern colors. The glasses don’t “restore” color, but uses filters to help enhance the separability of the spectrum that they can see.

Through a partnership with EnChroma, a manufacturer of color blindness correcting glasses, Valspar is gifting this special eyewear to a number of colorblind individuals while raising awareness about color’s impact on our lives.

The #ColorForAll initiative is anchored by a short documentary, titled “Color for the Colorblind,” that shares personal stories from four colorblind individuals and their reactions to experiencing color for the first time. The film can be viewed at

“As a company deeply rooted in color, Valspar believes that everyone deserves to see and appreciate the experience that color brings to life,” said Joel Wasserman, Director of Brand Integration at Valspar. “Most people don’t know what it’s like to live in a muted world. We’re dedicated to making a change for the better and igniting a conversation around the impact of color.”

Individuals who are colorblind or are affected by color blindness are encouraged to share their own stories with #ColorForAll or at, where responses will be featured along with additional footage from the film. Some of those submitting stories will receive EnChroma glasses, courtesy of Valspar. Additionally Valspar will be working with art museums across the country offering up the glasses to enable even more people to see color for the first time.

RED COLORI recently started voluteering for an non-profit organization called Habitat Pro Association. The organisation raises public awareness to sustain indigenous traditional practices by providing necessary resources, and assistance to assure equality of future generations in Peru. Enhancing the social media presence and reach potential donors is my responsibility at the moment, so I would appreciate any suggestions from you.


Even though I aid remotely through social media, they extend a sense of community and good motives to make a difference in Peruvian communities. Through the online advocacy we intent to raise awareness of the problems that this communities are facing and have proof to the authorities of the importance of the indigenous heritage to humanity.


I believe that if we advocate together for the indigenous voices, our message will reach out further. If you would like to know about it visit the following:

I would appreciate any suggestion to the social media pages since we are in our path to be more knowledgeable and proficient on this platforms.





Social Media makes people disconnected


Internets makes this world smaller, which is the truth.

At the same time, thanks to the internet, people are able to reach everyone by social media platform, which can be a good thing. However with the over development of social media, people spend too much time on it. As the result, they might be familiar with strangers or make some on-line friends; but in reality, social media makes them disconnected with family and friends.

The movie Disconnect is remarkable, it tells people the tragic stories caused by social media. Because of the social media– a teenager suicided, a wife had an affair, a reporter had relationship with her interviewee… All the things they had done were trying to pleasure their ‘audiences’ or on-line friends, while this kind of interaction also put themselves in danger.f2d876df827d8e57d88758d6e72bedf6

Make the reporter as an example. In order to create the exclusive report, she approached an on-line porno model who was only 15. Finally she persuaded him to be shown on this interview— as expected, she created a successful exclusive report about on-line teenager erotic trade. Seems like everything was perfect for her, she got awards and became a famous reporter. But there is only one thing beyond imagination— She and that boy adored each other, and that boy deeply wanted to be with her. I can see that the reporter did like him, maybe not that much, but she wanted to ‘save’ him from the dirty job. However, at the end, they both broke. d67eb0101ba2e6af7a052e4311cce4db

As the human being, we are born to be emotional. Even we can make clear decisions about life, work and social connection, but sometime our body do not listen to our intelligent brain— body has its own feeling. The reporter planed to be officially connected with that 15 years old boy, but they turn to like each other. That wife planed to talk with someone online, while her husbands’ credit cards were stolen. These two naughty boys only wanted to make fun of another introversion boy, but he suicided……

We create social media because we want to be connected, but sometime the social media makes us disconnected and getting hurt. I would like to say that, we can use social media to watch fancy stuff or be familiar with people you are interested in, but DO NOT hurt people, and always keep yourself safe.c28123508f651890c9c3c90a82dd5cd6

By the way, even I’m going to be a PR person, I use social media rarely in person. Because compared with chatting with people online, I prefer to make connection with the REAL person, face to face is my favorite way.

Some tips about Instagram

I love traveling and taking photographs on the way. Interest is the best teacher. For me, putting my pictures on Instagram is a good way to encourage me finding more interesting  and unique things in my life. That’s great! So, I spent more time and energy on working on Instagram recently. I collected some useful tips about this social media platform and share with you.

How to get more likes  instagram-logo-png-black

Post photos at the right time.
You can post your photos a little after dinner time. People browse the web when they’re tired in the evening.
Don’t post photos on Friday or Saturday night.

Post the right photos
Never post three similar photos in a row. Choose the best one to display.

Post photos of unique views.
People like unique photos of things they’ve never seen before.

Use the most popular hashtags. #loves, #me, #cute, #Friday and #coffee

Some other tips

• Like and compliment your followers photos.
• Don’t overdo hashtags. It’s okay to use tags like #instacool now and then, but don’t use it on every picture.
• Instead of using filters, get an editing app to edit photos before uploading them.
• Follow people who like your photos.
• Post similar pictures by placing them into a collage.

How to become a professional photographerPhotographer Silhouette-Male 1

Make the time to shoot what you love for yourself and your passion will grow by trying various digital photography techniques.
Invest in good photo editing programs for your computer.
Be aware that if you are being paid to take photos of others, you will be expected to meet your client’s desires for the photographs rather than your own artistic preferences.
Don’t be afraid to use your photo camera or a point-and-shoot to take photos in your free time.
Always start your business slowly, and don’t expect it to grow incredibly fast.

I hope you also think those tips are helpful. By the way, could you share your stories  and experiences of Instagram? Thanks!

A Dog is not for Christmas, It’s for Life!

So it’s this time of year again – Christmas. My favorite time of the year. Christmas means time with my family and friends, good food and long nights in front of the fireplace. However, it is not a happy holiday for everyone. According to RSPCA, three pets get abandoned every hour over Christmas.

A dog is for life
So this is the question I ask myself all the time. Why get a puppy for christmas if you are going to abandoned it a few days later?

People don’t think about the responsibilities when they are buying a puppy for christmas. You have to feed it, walk it, pet it and love it. You can’t just get one, and if it doesn’t work out, just throw it away like trash. Just because you can’t find a place to house your pets over Christmas break, doesn’t mean you can dump it on the street and hope someone will find it.

“Christmas is one of our busiest times of year for animal abandonments – second only to the summer when birthing rates are high coupled with people going on holiday”, said a spokesperson for the RSPCA.

I think it is important to shed a light on this issue. According to Animal Rescue Centers, it is a growing problem world wide. So how can we decrease the growing rates?

romanian dog poor

  1. Stores should be more skeptical when someone wants to buy a puppy for Christmas
  2. Before buying a dog, people should really think about the responsibilities that comes with owning a dog
  3. Before buying a dog, people should check if they have someone who can take care of the dog if they are going away

There is probably a  lot more that can be done. I just want people to know that a dog is not for Christmas, it’s for life.

What do you think about the high abandonment rates during Christmas?

Till next time!



The Other in Nationalism – Greece and Turkey

I grew up in Bodrum.

A city on the South western coast of Turkey..



All busy days ended the same way in Bodrum. At a table next to the calm sea or under an olive tree, with few fresh sea food and a glass of raki.

Aegean people had always loved enjoying the life to the fullest..

When you raised your glass in Bodrum, you always knew there was someone raising the same glass, this time full of ouzo, on the island across the sea.. Looking at you.



That’s how close Turkey and Greece, geographically and culturally.

If you are living on the Western coast of Turkey, you know that the culture right across the sea is no different than yours..

How can that be?


Turks and Greeks lived together for such a long time. Even before the idea of “nationalism” spread.

Coming from a family who migrated from Greece to Turkey in the early 1900’s, I always dreamed of living in the era when a Greek neighbour celebrated your Ramadan or a Turkish neighbour was a part of your Noel.

What happened then? Nationalism.

After the French Revolution, this idea spread around the world so quickly.

Ottoman Empire, which was made out of a lot of different nations was doomed to fall eventually.

Greeks revolted in 1832, rightfully so and gained independence.

In 1923, the Turkish Republic was founded after denouncing the Ottoman ties and gathered people under the idea of “nationalism”.


Greece and Turkey – Satellite Picture

Nationalism, to a certain extent can be good. The problem in this ideology lies in the definition of the “other”.

You have to have an “other” to make people stick to this idea.

Therefore, Turks became the “other” for Greeks, and Greeks were the “other” to Turks, even though a minority of each nation continued to live in both countries.

Turkish history during the early years of the republic, decided to distance itself from the Ottoman era and religion and chose the idea of Turkism. It was short-lived and religion became a historical part too.

Greek history, reffered to Ottomans as barbaric and cruel, distancing themselves from that “other”.

However, especially after the rise Marxism, criticisms from the historians flourished. Historians from both countries demanded a more objective narrative to tell their history.

Especially with the new generation,  who are getting more interested in each others culture, the bridges are being built up again. This makes me happy as a boy who is in love with this cultural exchange and friendship.

And if you are from the Aegean, you already know that the history and politics are just tools for governments and you are already planning your next trip to your neighbour!

Geia mas! Sherefe! (or Cheers!)

We all disconnect

Yesterday, i watched the movie “Disconnect”. Here are some review of my opinion. At first, i thought this movie must talked about the scene that people lived without the net.  Actually not, and even worse, i think this movie is talked about the love is disconnect. After Ben committed a suicide, his father Rich went crazy, when he asked Ben’s mother “Do you know Ben’s favorite book is White Norse?” We could feel how guilty he thought and Rich also addicted to find the person who make his son suicide. Is this means love?  Unquestionable, his father love him. But their love just disconnect. Before Ben’s accident, his father work all the time, they even could’t had a dinner together.  They did not find a right way to connect their love.

Ironic, the bad boy Jason thought Ben’s father is perfect, when he fought with his father he yelled at his father that “Ben’s father is different!”


the bad boy Jason, he thought his father was a jerk. He thought his father blamed him that he quit his cop work for him. However, in order to protect Jason, his father Mike broke his professional integrity, destroyed his son’s evidence of crime. When Jason saw his father fought with Ben’s father, he knew his father love him even he made such big mistake.


The journalist Nina and the young boy Kyle, their last conversation was impressed.When Kyle asked Nina “if I wasn’t younger?” Nina still could’t answer it, and Kyle talked to Nina that “she was the one exploit people”. Yes, they came from different world, i believe Nina do want to save Kyle at last, but it still not love but sympathy or guilty make her do this. She never love Kyle.  I think this is a sign of humanity.  People good at using emotion to get their purpose.1120_8

This movie still talking about the disconnect love of people but use the social media as a platform. Nowadays, we could easily make a relationship to a ID in the net and easier to trust people online but in the real world the distance between each other are continuously extend.

When people change their Facebook profile for France flag do they think they could done more in real world than just change the profile?1120_1.jpg
