Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu

Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu

Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: “Run free, comrade, we’ve left the old world behind!”

Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France’s cultural history.

Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.

The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.

The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP)

Gökşin Sipahioğlu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao’s revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.

As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Gökşin brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:

“At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The students wrecked everything, ripped up paving stones, chopped down trees, erected barricades, set cars on fire. Later, in a matter of minutes, the CRS [riot police] charged the students. I asked myself, ‘Why hadn’t they charged earlier?’ I soon understood why. The authorities wanted the public to see the devastation.”

While in Paris, Gökşin realized that a network was sorely needed for distribution of news photos, and he founded Sipa Press photo news agency in 1973 with American journalist Phyllis Springer. Encouraging young photographers and giving many their first chance, Gökşin created a generation of photojournalists.

Australia investigators defend MH370 out-of-control scenario
Tue, 22 May 2018 04:43:53 -0400

Australia investigators defend MH370 out-of-control scenarioAustralian investigators Tuesday defended their findings that missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was out of control when it plunged into the ocean, despite renewed theories that a rogue pilot ditched the plane. The Boeing 777 -- which vanished in March 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing carrying 239 passengers -- has not been found despite an extensive search led by Australia in the southern Indian Ocean and a continuing private search commissioned by Malaysia. The failure to find the plane has fuelled theories which differ from the conclusions of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), which led the first search, that the jet was making a high-speed out-of-control descent when it hit the water.

Easy and inventive egg recipes (that will reduce your risk of stroke)
Tue, 22 May 2018 04:55:14 -0400

Easy and inventive egg recipes (that will reduce your risk of stroke)With the news that eating one egg a day may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, it seems only right that eggs are making a breakfast comeback. According to new research published in the journal Heart, for which researchers from Peking University Health Science Centre examined data from over 400,000 participants in China, consumption of up to one egg daily was linked with lower rates of strokes and heart disease. While in this country, it seems we have already embraced the idea of going to work on an egg once more. In March, figures showed that we are eat on average an egg every two days - bringing us closer to the levels of egg consumption seen in the 1970s, when they were at their peak.  The British Egg Industry Council, which carried out the research, said people are once again taking the time to make a "proper" breakfast after a string of reports warning of cereal's high sugar content, with some containing as much as 12g of sugar per serving.  It is estimated that over the Easter bank holiday around 45 million eggs are eaten a day, with families sitting down to brunches that star eggs as the star of the show.  Not only are eggs delicious and incredibly versatile, they are an extremely healthy choice too, being high in protein, low in calories and full of vitamins. Here, then, we share some of our favourite egg-based recipes, making the most of this humble yet heroic ingredient.  Easy and exciting egg recipes Coddled eggs with spinach, mushrooms, and Marmite soldiers Credit: ANDERS SCHONNEMANN  Colourful layered eggs Credit: Susan Bell The Delauney's eggs Arlington   Socca flatbreads with herb yoghurt, harissa, feta and fried eggs Credit: Olivia Williamson  Baked sausages, with beans, eggs and feta  Credit: Haarala Hamilton  Breakfast bacon and egg tart The perfect shakshuka Credit: Heathcliff O'Malley Duck egg with smoked salmon and caviar Credit: KATE WHITAKER New potato and chorizo hash with asparagus and poached egg Indian cheese on toast Credit: Dishoom  Sweet potato mash with bacon lardons, fried egg and parsley pesto Credit: Yuki Sugiura
