Magical realism can illuminate and amplify the emotions in a deeply personal story — or, in clumsy hands, it can just create extra distractions and create a giant mess. Russell Crowe tries to use magical realism in his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, and the results are less than great.
In an effort to rescue 38 soldiers and the remains of Suleyman Shah — the "grandfather of the Ottoman Empire" — from ISIS forces, Turkey yesterday dispatched hundreds of soldiers, tanks, aircraft, and drones to a tomb in Syria.

Turkey has long considered the construction of a new canal, one that would connect the Black Sea to the Marmara Sea and provide a safer route for tanker ships that currently navigate the Bosporus straits.
