Chobani CEO Ulukaya Continues to Employ Refugees

Image Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya defended his choice to hire immigrants who have sought refuge in the U.S. from war torn countries in an interview on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday morning.

It has plants in upstate New York, Idaho and Australia. The extreme right strongly disapproves of his humanitarian efforts, with some making racist attacks online, urging people to boycott the company or writing false articles about Chobani, according to the New York Times. One article said that Ulukaya wanted to "drown the United States in Muslims."

The historic graveyards containing the remains of the sons of the 34th Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II are on the verge of being lost for ever. Buried in a Muslims-only graveyard in the French capital, the graves of the princes seem to be in quite bad condition, with some writing on the tombstones now so faint that only words on the grave of Ahmed Nureddin Efendi can be picked out. With history at stake, if nothing is done soon, there will be nothing left to preserve. Speaking to Daily Sabah, historian Ekrem Buğra Ekinci stated that the cemetery was opened in 1937. "There are 21 people buried there, four of whom are princes," he said.

Osman Bayezid Efendi, who studied French Literature, worked at the New York Library for almost 34 years. He was able to speak six different languages and despite being the first Ottoman heir to be born in exile, he could speak Turkish fluently. A man known for his modesty and kindness, he was so thoughtful that when he failed to attend to an invitation, his brother, Cem Osmanoğlu, joked by saying, "He must be dead. Otherwise he would be here," only to find out later that Bayezid Efendi had indeed been hospitalized.
