Sharpening talons

Anatolian Eagle 2013-2 (or ‘Anadolu Kartali’ in Turkish), at Konya from June 10 to 20, was the latest training exercise in a long-running series hosted by the Türk Hava Kuvvetleri (Turkish Air Force). Three Anatolian Eagle exercises take place there each year for Turkey’s and NATO air forces to sharpen their war-fighting skills.

First held in 2001, Anatolian Eagle was conceived and arranged to mirror the US Air Force’s Red Flag exercises. It aims to verify and evaluate the combat readiness of the Turkish AF’s tactical flying units and its capability to manage the development of tactical air training, and

Shaping dreams.

Today when the design of most offices is based on minimalism and functionality, Hablani Architects have redefined the workplace as a place that will induce maximum productivity. Their own office is a direct result of this mantra. Modernism and functional components mesh seamlessly with comfortable and comforting features to lend this space a sense of serenity and make for a relaxed state of mind.

Located in the busy Narayan Kothi Square, the four stored building, where the office occupies the top two floors, is placed on a triangular plot. A common lift and staircase lead you to the reception room,

Shaker Maker

To the fore on two rock’n’roll classics and more besides, the late Joe Moretti was one of British pop’s ‘guitarist’s guitarists’. Profile by Alan Clayson.

Prior to British beat music’s subjugation of the planet in the mid-1960s, only a handful of native recordings were really on a par with anything in the annals of US classic rock. Among these were Vince Taylor’s Brand New Cadillac and Shakin’ All Over from Johnny Kidd. Each song lived in their riffs – and the guitarist who played both of them was Joe Moretti, a man who rippled across the decades as an influence

SHAPE SHIFTER

It was the high ceilings and large rooms that attracted Charlie King to a run-down property round the corner from her flat in southwest London 18 months ago. ‘My partner Andrew and I saw past the dated decor and the strange layout,’ says Charlie, ‘and immediately had ideas about how we could change things around. We wanted to be able to put our own stamp on things.’

PLENTY OF POTENTIAL

Keen to gain an extra bedroom and a proper garden, the couple got down to planning and decided on a layout that would suit them and daughter Honor, 11. ‘We

Shady gardens

What to plant in a shady garden is only a dilemma if it isn’t thought through properly.

Many options exist when it comes to manipulating the amount of shade in your garden. But, how shady is the area to start with? Obviously, a shady garden is one with limited light. Solid shade, where light is quite dim, is often caused by tall buildings and walls, and is common in urban areas with high-density housing. Tall screening shrubs and hedging, or all-weather pergolas, also create low light conditions. Such garden areas are often in shadow for most of the day.

Dappled

shadowman

Кто делает эту игру — вопрос неоднозначный, и простым смертным узнать ответ вряд ли удастся. Даже сама фирма Acclaim, которая собирается публиковать Shadow Man, по­хоже, имеет на этот счет сомне­ния, и в разных местах называет разработчиков то Acclaim Studios — Stockton, то Iguana UK. Если это и в самом деле Iguana (помните милую ящерку на зас­тавке Turok и Turok 2?), то нас вполне может ждать Зрелище с большой буквы.

До выпуска осталось немно­го, летом наш «теневичок» (Shadow Man) должен появиться на прилавках, но детали пока известны скорее описа­тельного характера, чем техни­ческого. Главное разочарова­ние — пожалуй, «третье лицо». Особых трюков и
