The Uygur: Friendless in the Turkic World?

Written by Stephen Sullivan

Continued from page 1

The Central Asian states, predominantly run by near despots who came up fromrepparttar ranks ofrepparttar 124218 old Soviet regimes, seerepparttar 124219 wealth of opportunity of being viewed as supportive of Beijing. Trade deals, millions of dollars in potential investment and one plus billion potential consumers can do a lot to turn a fellows head. Being less than vocal in supportingrepparttar 124220 Uygur is a small investment indeed forrepparttar 124221 expected returns.

The "Great Game" ofrepparttar 124222 19th and early 20th centuries that was played out between Russia and Britain over Central Asia and north western China is back on and being joined byrepparttar 124223 likes ofrepparttar 124224 United States, China, India and some European countries including Turkey. Each is trying for an economic and/or military presence. The Central Asians are falling over themselves in accommodation, hedging bets each way and that all forrepparttar 124225 sake of almighty dollar, yuan or ruble.

One ofrepparttar 124226 articles I mention ( “Uyghurs offended at newspaper slur” Institute of War and Peace Reporting 23/1/04) cite, among other things, reports how a Kazakhstan newspaper essentially brandedrepparttar 124227 50,000 - 200,000 plus Uygurs (depending on whose figures you believe) living in Kazakhstan as terrorists and trouble makers. This is not a new story though it has not been as publicly stated before. In Uzbekistan for example there have been rumblings againstrepparttar 124228 Uygur residents there for some time. The publication of this article, however, does mark a watershed forrepparttar 124229 Uygur.

Whilstrepparttar 124230 Kazakhstan Interior Minister distances his government fromrepparttar 124231 opinions expressed inrepparttar 124232 news article one can not help thinking back torepparttar 124233 early rumblings against another ethnic group. Not that one expects a "final solution" torepparttar 124234 Uygur question butrepparttar 124235 outcome could be less than pleasant forrepparttar 124236 Uygur in Xinjiang and of Cental Asia generally if they continue to remain friendless inrepparttar 124237 world.

The Uygur truly are in an unenviable position. Alone inrepparttar 124238 world, championed by no one and now sold out by their brothers for 12 pieces of silver. It is hoped that they are happy withrepparttar 124239 money and do not want to take a part inrepparttar 124240 execution.

Written by Charles Kangethe

Continued from page 1

Step #4 - Edit Mode

In this stage you can now formatrepparttar article, spell check, order, and replace or modifyrepparttar 124217 content. Organise your paragraphs and getrepparttar 124218 layout and presentation correct.

This is where you proofread and check your grammar, turningrepparttar 124219 raw material from step 3 into a product resemblingrepparttar 124220 finished article.

Editing probably takes more time than any other stage in writing.

Be prepared to spend time going overrepparttar 124221 material to get it just right.

Step #5 - Polish Mode

At this point, your article is free of spelling mistakes, it is formatted correctly,repparttar 124222 content is ordered and it flows in a logical sequence.

However, it needs polishing to improve its "readability".

The way to do this is to take it and read it out loud.

The objective is to discoverrepparttar 124223 "flow" or "tone and rhythm"

Flow is like an elephant - difficult to describe, but easy to recognise. Just as you listen to music or a poem and identify rhythm, you should "listen" forrepparttar 124224 rhythm of your written work as you read it out loud.

Using one word instead of another or changingrepparttar 124225 order of words can make a huge difference inrepparttar 124226 "tone and rhythm" of an entire sentence or paragraph. In turn, this affects repparttar 124227 readability ofrepparttar 124228 entire article.

This is what makesrepparttar 124229 difference between words people read and words people feel they HAVE to read.

Your aim is to write content using "flow" from words, tone, and rhythm that make people feel they have to read everything you write.

Think of it as compelling writing.

Step #6 - Submit For Publication

Once your article is ready you must submit it to as many publishers as will put it on "paper" for their readers.

This isrepparttar 124230 heart ofrepparttar 124231 article publicity generating machine.

You can submit articles manually or automaterepparttar 124232 process to an extent using software such a ezine announcer.

The process isrepparttar 124233 same in either case.

* Findrepparttar 124234 publishers by using directories onrepparttar 124235 Internet * Send themrepparttar 124236 written piece with a short cover asking them to publish * Ensure your resource box with appropriate contact details is prominent atrepparttar 124237 bottom ofrepparttar 124238 published piece.

Remember you cannot over submit your writing - get it published as often and as widely as you can.

Step #7 - Start Again

Even though a written and published article will give you f'ree publicity, you must publish frequently and to an equally high standard in order to build a reputation as an author or expert in your field.

Start selecting a new topic and doingrepparttar 124239 research for your next article even as your current one is hittingrepparttar 124240 publishers' pages. ------------------------------------------------------------ Use these 7 steps and writing will become something you enjoy rather than a chore. ------------------------------------------------------------
