    I can think of one option that leaves you. How do you feel about winter?

    I don't mind the cold. I would move to Canada if I knew for sure that I'd have job stability.

    I did some research on immigration to Canada and I'd say it's pretty easy to get in if you get a job offer beforehand.

    I hate that idiot and his buddies, and it's beyond me how the ruling (centre-right) party could form a coalition with them just in time for the Bulgarian presidency of the Council of the EU. :facepalm:

    And that would be the kicker for me. If that happens, I'm a goner.

    You can also try applying for scholarships for some master program, I think that would also make it easier for you to get there. If you get any kind of degree in Canada, you get bonus points that would help you get a permanent residence approval. Even more points if you speak both English and French. I was looking all this up for myself few weeks ago and I think you have a better shot at it than me since I think the translating stuff you study is more needed than political sciences that I study. Plus you're younger.

    CSIS, gentlemen. Apply to work for CSIS. They're always looking for analysts and translators. Also you'd live and work in Ottawa.

    According to a survey from IPSOS regarding the constitutional referendum:

    Correlation between votes and education level

    None & Primary School: 70% Yes, 30% No
    Middle School: 57% Yes, 43% No
    High School: 42% Yes, 58% No
    University & Above: 39% Yes, 61% No

    Correlation between votes and city centers/rural areas

    City centers: 48% Yes, 52% No
    Rural areas: 62% Yes, 38% No

    Out of the 17 cities whose annual contribution to the Turkish economy exceed 1.5 million Turkish liras:

    5 voted Yes (Kocaeli, Bursa, Konya, Samsun, Kayseri)
    12 voted No (Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Adana, Hatay, Mersin, Zonguldak, Manisa, Muğla, Tekirdağ, Eskişehir)

    Turkey is shackled by its unproductive, uneducated population.

    Macron and Le Pen are heading for the second round! Let's hope Macron will beat her as hell.
    Outside France, others are also happy about Macron's chances.

    It's sad that Le Pen is even able to reach round 2.

    Turkish election board announced their reasoned decision for refusing the appeals against the referendum today. This is one of their statements:

    "A full state of unlawfulness did not occur."

    How much unlawfulness did occur, I wonder. 10%? Half? 78.5%?

    Chaos in Macedonia. Center-left party has formed a government with the Albanians excluding the strongest party (right wing) and the right-wing president is refusing to give mandate to them. Tonight an Albanian became president of the Parliament, so protestors entered the Parliament and bashed the heads of the center-left and Albanian leaders.

    I heard on the radio that Turkey banned access to Wikipedia.
