Ege'de Atölye 9 Eylül gazetesinde Atilla Köprülüoğlu'nun köşesinde

Atilla Köprülüoğlu, yıllarca Günaydın gazetesinde çalışmış, 30 yılı aşkın gazetecilik yapmış, hala da 9 EYLÜL gazetesinde köşe yazan bir basın emekçisi. Medyadaki yozlaşmadan şikayetçi. Gazeteciyi gazetecilikten başka işi olmayan, kamuoyunu doğru, objektif bilgilendirmeyi amaçlayan namuslu meslek erbabı olarak tanımlıyor. Usta Gazeteci ile Yeni Foça'da Arnavut'un yerinde söyleştik. O anlattı dinledik. Biz anlattık, o da ''Ege'de Atölye'yi ertesi gün 9 Eylül'deki köşesine taşıdı.

Teşekkür ederiz.

Health Benefits of Olives

Image
In the 11th century İbn-Butlan wrote a book for healthy living called Takwim al-Sıhha. This book then was translated to Latin Tacuinum Sanitatis and used commonly in the Medieval times. The book's content not only contributed to the development of medicine but it also gave practical tips on agriculture and various recipes for cooking.
The miniatures are thought to be added in the Medieval period. The book became popular as it spread as a pocket book. The Italian word taccuino meaning pocket book is thought to be derived from this particular book. 
Chapter 25 of Tacuinum Sanitatis is about the olive and olive oil.

Dating Olives

Santorini is an island in the Mediterranean where the oldest fossilised olive leaves (50 or 60 000 years old) have been found.

It was thought that there was a great volcano eruption in Santorini more than 3500 years ago.

In the 1980's number of studies, the latest being C14 dating of olive trees. Why olive trees? Because olive trees (and cypress) are the oldest creatures in Mediterranean living up to 3000 - 4000 years. Other such old trees in the world include pine, sequoia, cypress, common yew and others.

These studies suggested the eruption might have happened a century earlier. Knowing the exact time of this eruption is important in terms of renarrating the history of Eastern Mediterranean.

Paulo Cherubini however proved that C14 dating cannot provide reliable results because olive tree produces pseudo rings and dead parts of the tree can remain on the tree for decades. The reliability of carbon dating is shown to vary 44%.

Four Tales about Olives

Story 1 : 
Death of Adam, Jerusalem
According to legend, Adam, who has been kicked out of heaven along with Eve, feels that he is about to die at the age of 930. He decides to ask for God's forgiveness. He sends his son Seth (Şit) to the Garden of Eden. The gardener angel listens to Seth's prayer and hands three seeds from the Tree of Knowledge.  He tells him to put the seeds in his fathers mouth when he dies.  When Adam dies, they burry him to Tabor Mountain near Hebron Valley. The three seeds that grow from Adam's mouth become the three symbols of Mediterranean flora. The Olive, The Cedar (Sedir)  and The Cypress (Servi).
