Today marks not only the birthday of William Shawn, "New Yorker" magazine's long time editor (who revolutionized journalism by devoting as many pages as needed to a writer), it is also the same day in 1946 when Shawn was able to convince magazine's owner to dedicate an entire issue to a long essay by John Hersey titled “Hiroshima,” an in-depth coverage of six survivors of the atomic bomb, taking up every page except the “Goings On” calendar.

I should have mentioned in my previous comment that I sent the article to a friend of mine, Dragana, who is from Serbia and a linguist. What I put in the comment is her opinion about the article.

It is a very complex thing their migration. I don't have time at the moment to look into it. But I am in touch with the museum because there are some words from the Iranian tribes that have survived but nothing much. This due to the fact that “the Alans created no writing, and no texts survive in their language except an inscription in Greek letters on a tombstone from the headwaters of the Kuban (Grund. Iran. Phil. I, Anhang, p. 31).” So only by careful reconstruction of the language that the Alans spoke would be possible to compare the two. They belong to two different family of languages but they have borrowed from each other.

Yes there are lot of legends woven into the story but the Huns and Persian did have a lot of contact but the story of the Alans and Huns is a separate story, before and after their migration.

Are you talking about this guy in the below picture .?
They're NOT only under attack of civilized world such as U.S or westerners, they're are under attack of million Iranians inside and outside of Iran.
Don't forget June 2009. Those people on streets of Tehran and other cities are NOT dead, they're still alive and can come out on streets any day.
Hassan Dai will be the first person who goes after the guy in the below picture.
You know MEK are very brutal once it come to anyone who is associated with ruling criminal mullahs in Iran.
The crowed you mentioned in your comment are bunch of traitor ( Khaen) whose their corpses will be dangling on the trees by million Iranian sooner or later.
Iraj khan, Learn from history and read history of Afghanistan to see what happened to Najeeb and his followers.

"No, we are a tech company, not a media company...we build the tools, we do not produce any content" said Zuckerberg. For starters, they don't need to produce content since their users do that for them. Call Facebook a social media company, "platisher" (half platform, half publisher of user content) or whatever other buzzword that's in vogue, but Facebook is very much a media company. Sure, they may not have a news editor, but they have the equivalent in the form of human engineered algorithms that decide how content is ranked and who sees what piece of media (videos, links to articles, status updates, etc.). Cross-sell that content to advertisers (along with the data mining targeting users based on their interests) and voila, I present to you a media company.

You're a good boy gone wrong Siavash. Just try not to push Reza Pahlavi here because they'll eat you for lunch on this site. Write about how bad Iran is, post shocking photos of Iran and Iranians, lots and lots of hangings, the dates don't matter. Soon you'll find many friends here too.

Actually any concise and correct translation of "Daesh" should include Mullahs of Iran as the Original Daesh and ISIS.
All theocracies are doomed; whether Islamic theocracies like Saudis or our own 'beloved' Islamic Republic of Hell or Jewish theocracy like Israel.
Talking about doomed, remember how that White Polar Bear got it rear behind kicked in Afghanistan? Looks like it is on the course for another round of getting kicked on its rear behind in Syrian. Count on it.

Iraj Khan,
I read your blog in respond to Hassan Dai about his false accusation a while back. I am also aware of you using some Farsi words in your comments in order to portrait as an Iranian and I am also aware that you know some Iranian comedian like Hadi Khorsandi,, but still I am NOT sure about your nationality.
It appears that you have NO clue about general Iranians' feeling toward Arabs and Sunni. That is a red flag. You also post flag of Palestine in your comments once in a while which is very inappropriate on Iranian's site.
Anyway, make a long story short, if you really want to wipe Israel off the map, please do NOT involve Iran and Iranians in your adventure. Do it on your own, NOT on the expenses of Iranians. We have nothing to do with the conflict between Arabs and Israel.
There are 27 Arab nations in the world. You can get help from them. Some of them are very wealthy such as Kuwait and Qutar....etc and I am sure they can help you out. They always help out their Arab blood brothers, we saw it during their invasion to Iran in 1980. They all supposed Saddam Hussain. We all know that.
We have long history of conflict with Arabs since 1400 years ago, in case you didn't know it. They call us AJAM means deaf and dumb.
What you see in the western media that a group of Iranians burns American or Israel flags give you false impression and false idea that Iranians hate U.S and Israel. Those people on T.V are NOT representative Iranians or whole nation. Western media deceives NONe Iranians. NONE Iranians see flag burning on T.V so they mistakenly think Iranians must hate U.S and Israel. NOT true. We are loving, peaceful people and have no animosity against any nation. Western media lied to you Iraj Khan. Wake up.

Practically no other writer comes close to Elmore Leonard as far as movies made based on their stories.
Well, Philip K. Dick, is a distant second by thirteen movies based on his works as compared to Leonard's stunning twenty two movies made based on his books.
And of course there's just no substitute for reading Leonard's texts; his character developments, his narrations, that economy of prose,...
Below are a few of my favorite silver screen rendition of Leonard's stories.

میلیاردی شدن 'لانتوری' علی‌رغم تحریم
لانتوری، جدیدترین ساخته رضا درمیشیان آخرین فیلمی است که طی روزهای اخیر و با استدلال‌هایی ضد و نقیض از اکران در سالن‌های تحت مالکیت حوزه هنری محروم شده و با این وجود توانسته رکوردهای مربوط به گیشه را جابه جا کند.
سوژه اسید پاشی «لانتوری» این فیلم را به یکی از کنجکاور بر انگیز ترین فیلم های سی و چهارمین جشنواره فیلم فجر تبدیل کرده است.

And your monstrous monarchy with its tie wearing SAVAK torturers (who still like and admire so much) were the ultimate reason we ended up with mullahs.

Monarchists are the most despised and detested cult in Iran.
Donkeys, monkeys and dogs get more respect, receive more attention and have more utility in Iran that the despised monarchist cult.
Your ranks are so compromised and full of IR's agents which proves again how stupidly ridiculous monarchist cult has been all along.
Monarchist have ZERO future in Iran.
