An extract on #turkey_reward
"Kral TV Video Music Awards" were first awarded in 1995. Until the mid 2000s it is considered one of the most prestigious awards of music in Turkey. After the mid 2000s it lost its popularity. In 2006 new categories announced such as Best poem or Best myth song for such attempt. But they were awarded one year only. In 2007 awards lost their prestige when news emerged about some of the winners changed in favor of some others.
After Kral group has been sold to Dou Media Group in 2008, the awards have gone under some refreshments. In 2009, its name was changed to "Kral Music Awards" and 7th M-yap Music Awards, IFPI Turkish branch, were given together. Starting from 2009 award categories changed to be more work-based like songs or albums, in the past years awards were mostly artist-specific. Such that 10 awards were awarded for songs or albums in 2013 while only 5 were awarded to artists or groups, In 1995 this was 12 artist/group awards and only 3 song/album awards.
In 2013 the awards changed as "Turkey Music Awards".

Polarized sunglasses use the principle of Brewster's angle to reduce glare from the sun reflecting off horizontal surfaces such as water or road. In a large range of angles around Brewster's angle, the reflection of p-polarized light is lower than s-polarized light. Thus, if the sun is low in the sky, reflected light is mostly s-polarized. Polarizing sunglasses use a polarizing material such as Polaroid sheets to block horizontally-polarized light, preferentially blocking reflections from horizontal surfaces. The effect is strongest with smooth surfaces such as water, but reflections from roads and the ground are also reduced.
Photographers use the same principle to remove reflections from water so that they can photograph objects beneath the surface. In this case, the polarizing filter camera attachment can be rotated to be at the correct angle (see figure).
When recording a hologram, light is typically incident at Brewster's angle. Because the incident light is p-polarized, it is not back reflected from the transparent back-plane of the holographic film. This avoids unwanted interference effects in the hologram.
Brewster angle prisms are used in laser physics. The polarized laser light enters the prism at Brewster's angle without any reflective losses.
In surface science, Brewster angle microscopes are used in imaging layers of particles or molecules at air-liquid interfaces. By using a laser aimed at Brewster's angle to the interface, the pure liquid appears black in the image whereas molecule layers give out a reflection that can be detected and presented with a camera.
