Money This one's a no-brainer. Environment Humans move more of the earth's rocks and sediments around than any other beast or being. Satisfaction On the bright side, the satisfaction you can get from fixing things shouldn't be underestimated. The FPCD sets itself apart from conflict resolution — leaving that to the experts — and rather focuses on concrete development projects. At the time of the founding of FPCD, I personally was afraid that after the large international organizations completed their work, were downsizing, even leaving some post-conflict areas, that they would be forgotten even though development assistance was still needed.
The FPCD was to be a bridge to help keep focus on the people living in societies dealing with post-conflict insecurity. However, the single moment that defined my life and inspired me to gather all of these experiences together and personally do something about it, was my time spent in Timor-Leste as a Protocol Officer, preparing the Restoration of Independence.
Ozone: The Earth's protective shield is repairing
Most people know the history of this gem of a country located in Southeast Asia and for a brush-up, it can be found elsewhere. What needs to be known is that when I landed in Dili, no one could prepare me for what I saw and experienced. However, the landscape I saw, and the people I met, melted my heart. Creating the FPCD was in part a tribute to them and where our first actions took place thanks to the generosity of Prince Albert of Monaco. He was the only person I knew at the time who could help.
Through many Monaco-based entities, including the Princely Government, we were able to help overcome the challenges of poverty alleviation in a modest way. Courage, Family, Hope, Faith, and Love; each value is required to make it work—remove one and the whole system fails. In this painting, each member of the family represents a different value.

Economics and ethnic solidarity both played a role in the rapprochement reached between Israel and Turkey and economics is also a motivating factor in Turkey's recent overtures toward Russia. There is a reason why Turkish President Recep Erdogan refers to a 'common history and common culture' in all his speeches.
Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Calls for Mending Ties with Turkey
Those words are meant for those who live outside of Turkey's borders but share a common heritage and ethnic background and on whose behalf Turkey will not be slighted. Erdogan, then prime minister, was not impressed by the way Peres addressed him. When the moderator moved to close the panel, Erdogan interrupted. He turned to Peres, suggested he had a guilty conscience and told him: 'When it comes to killing, you know well how to kill'.

Although Peres later called Erdogan and apologised, the wound festered. Then, on 1 June , the Israeli navy stormed the 'Mavi Marmara', a ship carrying aid to Gaza, killing eight Turkish activists and one other. Turkey withdrew its ambassador from Israel and expelled the Israeli ambassador from Ankara.
Almost three years later, after Barack Obama intervened, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Erdogan and apologised for the incident and promised compensation to the families of those killed. Erdogan accepted the apology in the name of Turks. Since then, both countries have sought to normalise political and economic relations but negotiations were protracted.
The frosty relations between the two countries did not have much impact on trade and economic growth with the exception of tourism. A previously lively two-way tourism trade that had benefited both nations became moribund. Turkey was then taken by surprise when in September Russia allied with Iran, supported the Syrian regime forces and declared all opposition forces to be terrorists.
