State Management and Intellectual Mind
Government makes lower and higher layers of society closer to each other and provides close relationship between these layers in a fair approach. This transition between lower and higher layers depend on the "fatness" of middle layer. This term also defined as obesity is used to clarify the muchness of middle layer. If this layers between lower and higher layer loses weight or even turns into anorakcia, these society can not be managed and no one can mention about a fair management here. If this fatness goes towards to lower layer, this means that higher layers of society are distincted from other parts of society. This kind if situation cleary leads to anti govermental movements. Besides labour class' seeking for fair treatment, this increased gap between lower and higher layers leads society to look for different ideologic movements. If noble class rule, slavery will become more common and due to this situation, governors will face certain rebellious acts. In this article, importance of consultation mechanism will be taken into hand which also proves the existence of intellectual mind and high quality management.

Localism and Tradıtionalism in Orhan Pamuk
In his novel “A Strangeness in My Mind”, Orhan Pamuk tells us about thecity of Istanbul, which has under gone or changes and transformations starting from t he 1950s, through the life and love affair of a streetvendor named Mevlut Karataş, who sells yogurt and boza, a traditional Turkish beverage. Merely by this aspect, the novel may not seem so inventiveor an attention catcher. However, the novel is quite remarkable as a fiction due to its structural properties, and its techniques of writing and narration. Pamuk’s original perspective and approach in tackling and interpreting this seemingly ordinary content is worthlaying emphasis on. For Orhan Pamuk, what distinguishes novels from other narrations is the presence of an undisclosed center in novels. That center is far from the level that can be traced through existing words, somewhere in the background, out of sight and uneasy to capture. What we aimed to do in this article was to trace the central emotion and the idea, which may be regarded as the ‘major issue of the novel’. What kind of a second life does the novel “A Strangeness in My Mind” offer us? We searched for an answer to this question while also investigating the writing and the narration techniques.
