ANKARA, April 20 (Xinhua) -- Turkey's tourism sector is heading for a fast recovery in 2018, as early booking figures and demand from abroad suggest that the country could close this year with record 40 million tourists and over 30 billion U.S. dollars in tourism revenue.
"We have managed to overcome unfavorable odds and we are very hopeful this year," said President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during an international meeting of investors in Istanbul.

BENGALURU: Under the RTE quota, 716 schools (393 aided and 323 unaided) in the state did not receive seat applications. The reason: lack of proper infrastructure and not many teachers, said an official from the department of public instruction (DPI).
On Friday, over 1 lakh seats were allotted to private aided/unaided schools during the first round of the online lottery system. Officials said 2.3 lakh applicants were scrutinised for 1.52 lakh seats, but since many parents didn’t opt for seats in some schools, only 111,548 were finally allotted.

Want to make America great again and keep factories in the United States? Try strengthening labor unions.
That may seem counterintuitive, and certainly contrary to the direction the country has been moving in lately. But the reality is that when organized labor dug in its heels — as it did regularly in the United States until late in the 20th century — manufacturing companies thought twice about shutting a factory and transferring production to another country.
