Turkish Coastguard Rescues 35 Migrants From Half-Sunken Boat

The migrants were rescued around 2:45 a.m. (2345 GMT) near a small island off the coast of Ayvalik in Turkey's western Balikesir province, the coastguard said.
Greece has been the main gateway into the European Union for people fleeing conflict in the Middle East and beyond, largely via its islands near the Turkish coast. More than a million people reached its shores from Turkey in 2015-16.
Earlier this year, tens of thousands of migrants tried to cross into Greece via land and sea borders after Ankara said it would no longer stop them, as it had agreed in a 2016 deal with Brussels in return for European aid for Syrian refugees.
Turkey, which hosts about 3.6 million Syrians, the world's largest refugee population, said it lifted restrictions on the migrants because it was alarmed by the prospect of another wave of refugees fleeing war in northwest Syria.

GREAT ESCAPE: HEALDSBURG CALLING
The staycation is back in vogue as we all look for places nearby to escape to. I highly recommend Hotel Healdsburg for an overnight or week long getaway. The Hotel is running a Sunmer special that includes a $100 resort credit, breakfast for 2, parking and a welcome bottle of wine. Enjoy a scrumptious dinner too at Charlie Palmer’s Dry Creek Kitchen. This outdoor oasis in Healdsburg not only provides proper social distancing & stellar service but serves as a verdant escape. This is Sonoma wine country at it’s best.
MUSIC: RAPPERS DELIGHT
New music from @KidCudi & @Eminem . “Adventures of Moon Man & Slim Shady” is on point touching on recent #BLM events, sport, and even mask wearing during the COVID-19 pandemic.. The single is catchy and is available now for download or watch the animated lyric video via @YouTube. https://youtu.be/s1-D8UOq7iA
SUPPORT: OAKLAND ZOO
Treasured Zoos across the country are threatened with permanent closure due to massive financial losses during the COVID-19 shut down. Tbe East Bay’s Oakland zoo holds a special place in my heart. I have hosted many events there over the years and since 2010 have been the voice of the Zoo’s Outback Express. Please consider a donation to the animal fund at OaklandZoo.org. They need all the help they can get right now. Save our zoos.
SPORT: LET’s PLAY BALL
Baseball season starts July 23rd with SF V LA. Warm up games are already underway and while we cannot attend games in person we can enjoy all the action via partner media stations and via MLB.
TV: ZACK GETS “DOWN TO EARTH”
NOW on Netflix
High School Musical star Zac Efron, joins forces with “wellness expert” Darin Olien on Netflix’s new series Down to Earth With Zac Efron. Food plays a key role in Down to Earth, but if you’ve seen Efron’s abs — appearing at the 20-minute mark of one of two episodes made available pre-launch by Netflix — you can probably guess that the series isn’t designed as a tour of international pizza stores, but he does eat carbs. Phew!! Efron is no Anthony Bourdain but he’s loveable and is a guy who is curious, environmentally conscious and he does a grand job inviting us along for his adventures. Enjoy this preview.
Enjoy your weekend.
Stay home, stay safe and wear a mask.
