board a flight to London for meetings when security officials took him to a side room A prosecutor had ordered him taken into custody Later that day police escorted him to a central police station in Istanbul where he was placed in a cell with three low-ranking military officials accused of participating in the failed military coup that had shocked Turkey less than a week earlier A prominent liberal intellectual in Turkey the 48-year-old Cengiz was one of a growing number of journalists and media workers caught in a widening clampdown in Turkey in the aftermath of a coup attempt that left more than 200 people dead In recent days the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has issued orders shutting down 131 media organizations and issued arrest warrants for at least 89 journalists and other media personnel over alleged ties to the coup plot Coup Attempt in Turkey Ignites Night of Hell Turkish soldiers block Istanbul’s Bosphorus Bridge which separates the European and Asian

press that was already underway well before a faction of the Turkish military attempted to overthrow the government Under Erdogan’s government the space for freedom of expression had already narrowed prior to the coup attempt According to the Committee to Protect Journalists at least 14 journalists were in Turkeys prisons as of December 2015 a figure that places Turkey in a comparable category with like Egypt (with 23 journalists in prison) and Iran (19) The Turkish government had been moving to seize control or shut down critical media and also restricted the use of social media Cengiz said he was not questioned until the fourth and final day of his detention (He was released on orders not to leave the country on July 24) A respected attorney and journalist with no ties to the military coup plot he told his interrogator a prosecutor that his arrest made a mockery of the governments attempt to investigate the coup plot "If you start to arrest some people like myself: human rights defenders lawyers journalists et cetera you would start to jeopardize these legal procedures” he says over the phone “You would make them appear unserious If you really want to have a solid case against the coup plotters you should carefully distinguish people You should never give the impression that you are doing a witch-hunt" Read More: Turkey Could Be Taking A Big Step Backwards In Human Rights The phrase “witch hunt” is exactly how many critics describe the government’s current approach to media The primary target of the current crackdown are journalists the government views as affiliated with Fethullah Gulen an influential US-based religious leader who Erdogan claims was the instigator of the coup attempt (Gulen has denied playing a role) But in the eyes of rights advocates the sheer scale of the clampdown suggests that the government is taking an almost farcical view of who it links to the coup plot or the Gulen movement Gulen denies any role in the coup attempt and Western states have urged restraint as the Turkish government reasserts its grasp on the country On Thursday German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was “worried” by the crackdown in Turkey saying at news conference in Berlin “the principle of proportionality must be ensured by all" Cengiz previously wrote a column for Todays Zaman the English edition of a Gulen-linked newspaper and also represented the papers in legal proceedings when the government seized control of them in March He told prosecutors that in the wake of the government’s previous moves to restrict media Gulen-affiliated outlets offered a kind of last refuge for ordinary Turkish dissidents "Erdogan didnt give us any choice He just purged the other media so much and there was a few options for liberals like myself to write to speak and it was Gulens media Its funny in a way" he says Read More: Turkeys Long Night of the Soul Though the coup failed it came close to succeedingand imprisoning or even killing Erdogan So the government’s reaction has been massive in scale On June 20 the government declared a three-month state of emergency that expands the presidents power to rule by decree with little oversight from parliament The government has also suspended fired or detained tens of thousands of civil servants and closed more than 1000 schools More than 15000 people were detained over allegations of ties to the coup plot or the Gulen network According to Amnesty International there is "credible evidence" that some detainees were subjected to beatings and other forms torture including rape The government says the allegations of torture are “unfounded” and that human rights organizations fail to understand the authorities’ challenge in restoring order after a bloody and traumatic military coup attempt Read More: Turkeys Instability Calls the EU Migrant Deal Into Question The clampdown on media escalated this week with the issuance of arrest warrants for at least 89 journalists including many formerly associated with the Zaman newspapers On July 27 the government also issued a sweeping decree ordering the outright closure of 45 newspapers and 16 TV stations including numerous regional outlets and the well-known liberal newspaper Taraf "This goes well beyond any legitimate aim that the government might have about guaranteeing public order about upholding public order and its just a very arbitrary and brutal crackdown on free expression on free speech" says Emma Sinclair-Webb a senior Turkey researcher with Human Rights Watch Sinclair-Webb said that while the current clampdown mainly targets alleged Gulen-affiliated institutions the government had provided no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of any of the media outlets regardless of affiliation "This idea of this awful labeling of people in the absence of any evidence of criminal activity is a very dangerous way to go and so thats the witch hunt style" she says "You can have media you disagree with You can have media you find propagandistic or partisan or whatever theres always media like that But this is just intolerance part of an attempt to wipe out the Gulen movement in Turkey”

Fla. on Tuesday at about 3:45 pm local time Here’s what to know about SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket What is the Falcon Heavy rocket The Falcon Heavy is a heavy-lift rocket producing up to 55 million lbs of thrust in its first stage with the ability to lift payloads up to 141000 lbs Whereas SpaceX’s smaller Falcon 9 rocket has nine engines the Flacon Heavy has 27 it’s essentially three Falcon 9 rockets strapped together Following the Falcon Heavy launch SpaceX landed two of its nine-engine cores back on land and is waiting for the third to arrive SpaceX has spent years developing a landing

way to use SpaceX’s historic rocket launch to promote his other ventures Aboard the Falcon Heavy is a cherry red Tesla Roadster a recently unveiled design from his electric car company The car’s stereo played David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’ during the launch and was equipped with three cameras The car “will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn’t blow up on ascent” Musk had said in a tweet Why is the Falcon Heavy launch important A successful Falcon Heavy launch would be a major milestone for the private spaceflight industry and for humankind’s space exploration efforts at large Musk is also hopeful that the Falcon Heavy can help SpaceX achieve its goal of lowering the price of sending large payloads into space TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger writes: If Musk can deliver heavy lift at a low price he could energize the entire rocketry sector bringing the much-touted power of commercial competition to an industry that has been able to fatten up on a consistent diet of defense contracts without having to innovate much More important heavy-lift boosters are technology you can use not just to get to Earth orbit but to get out of it too pressing on to deep-space destinations like the moon and Mars But as Kluger notes that won’t be an easy task The workhorse of the fleet is the Falcon 9 which as its name implies uses a cluster of nine engines The Falcon Heavy uses three of those clusters Thats 27 first stage engines in total compared to the Saturn Vs five the SLSs four and the Delta IVs three The Atlas V which can be configured with different numbers of first stage engines maxes out at six The more engines you have the greater the risk of any one of them breaking down or blowing up and igniting the whole bundle Acoustic resonancebasically out of control vibrationsalso increases as the engine count climbs Wonder how messy an accident with a rocket like that can get Consider the Soviet Unions heavy-lift N-1 booster the countrys intended answer to the

skirts administrators deemed “too short” The students who attend the Tring School in Hertfordshire England had to either be picked up by a parent or removed from their classmates as a result of their attire according to ITV News Parents of the students were angry that their children were singled out One parent told ITV that her 13-year-old daughter was wearing the same skirt she wore last year “I sent her to school believing she was in the correct uniform” Lisa Thompson told ITV “I find it ridiculous that girls have been excluded from education today because of what they are wearing” Tring however insists they’ve always been explicit about what attire is and is not appropriate for students The website states that for girls skirts must be “black knee length and be of a pleated design” “In our communications we stated that students who were incorrectly dressed will be told to improve their uniform to the necessary standard before attending lessons” Head teacher Sue Collings told BBC

iconic pictures of the space shuttle Challenger exploding the orange-white fireball in the Florida sky with the twin contrails of the solid rocket boosters briefly continuing on their journey to nowhere It’s been 30 years since that awful morning on Jan 28 1986 and an entire generation of Americans has been born and grown into young adulthood since Yet the scenes and sounds of that moment including the faces of the astronauts’ family members watching the disaster unfold and the voice of the NASA announcer saying with incongruous flatness “Obviously a major malfunction” have become part of the nation’s shared experience You don’t have to have been alive on December 7 1941 or September 11 2001 to see the pictures from Pearl Harbor or downtown New York and feel strangely part of the day MORE: Challenger Disaster at 30 How Reagan Mourned a Space Shuttle The space shuttles never became the safe and reliable spacecraft they were originally advertised to be They flew for 25 more years after Challenger yes but before they were through they claimed a second crew when the shuttle Columbia disintegrated on reentry in 2003 It’s partly for that reason that the US has since returned to the old way of getting people to space putting them in a vehicle at the top of a rocket and bringing them home by parachute That keeps them farther from the flaming engines during liftoff and simplifies the physics of coming back down But space travel will never be and has never been a risk-free undertaking The day before the Challenger crew was lost the people of NASA observed the anniversary of the deaths of Gus Grissom Ed White and Roger Chaffee who burned to death in an Apollo spacecraft on the launch pad during a countdown rehearsal on January 27 1967 Those three astronauts were quietly remembered that day and the very next morning the nation had seven more to mourn And yet the fact that human beings keep going back to space and surely always will says something about

sought to focus attention on her conversations with New Hampshire voters and a broad-brush economic vision "We’re back into the political scene and therefore we will be subjected to all kinds of distractions and Im ready for it" Clinton told reporters "I know that comes unfortunately with the territory" "It is I think worth noting that the Republicans seem to be talking only about me" she continued "They wouldn’t have anything to talk about if I werent in the race But I am in the race and hopefully well get onto the issues and I look forward to that" The foundation’s fundraising has been in the spotlight thanks in part to an upcoming book by former George W Bush consultant Peter Schweizer called Clinton Cash which purports to find instances in which US policy benefited companies that donated to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State Republican presidential candidates lambasted Clinton during events in New Hampshire over the weekend with Kentucky Sen Rand Paul saying the book’s findings would include "big news" that would "shock people" (The book is not yet publicly available) But at her events Monday Clinton kept the focus on her own campaign in the Granite State “I want to hear from people in New Hampshire about what’s on their minds” she said The second week of Clintons candidacy began much like the preceding week in Iowa with small events and roundtable meetings with voters On Monday she began with a tour of a factory run by the Whitney Brothers where employees were building blocks furniture and play toys for infants and toddlers Then she sat at a roundtable in the companys warehouse fielding questions from company employees As expected Clinton did not lay out any new policy positions instead speaking in broader strokes about her initial goals for her small-event and voter-oriented campaign and her vision of a more inclusive economy "I want people to know that Im listening and that Im accessible and Im running a campaign about them" Clinton said "That’s about the needs of the people of New Hampshire Thats the kind of campaign I want to run" She reiterated comments she made last week during her Iowa events when she lamented that hedge fund managers pay lower taxes than middle class Americans thanks to low capital gains taxes Clinton again sounded her support for a constitutional amendment to rein in money in politics and suggested increased regulation of the financial market "If it’s just playing back-and-forth in the global market place to get one-tenth of one percent advantage maybe we should not let that go on because that’s at the root of economic problems we all remember painfully in 2008" she said Clinton will be under pressure to clarify her views as the race continues Her likely challengers for the Democratic presidential nomination are already staking out firm positions to her left and beginning to attack Clinton Just hours before the event in Keene Maryland Gov Martin OMalley contrasted himself with Clinton who last week articulated new views on immigration reform and same sex marriage "Do we have the ability as a party to lead by our principles or are we going to conduct polls every
