TURKEY-MAYA-CULTURE-CALENDAR

A union member distributes leaflets about miners' rights, reading: 'This is call to our people,' in Sirincein Sirince, a village in western Turkey, on December 21, 2012. As the village of Sirince waited for what some say is an apocalypse from which the tiny Turkish hamlet will be spared, its streets were teeming not with doomsayers but a hoard of disappointed journalists. Doomsayers have reportedly identified Sirince -- reputed to be the site from which the Virgin Mary ascended to heaven -- as a safe haven that will be spared destruction thanks to the positive energy flowing through it.
