This Insane Los Angeles Wedding Cost $10 Million







Lolita Osmanova and Gaspar Avdolyan exchanged vows at the historic Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, and it was a site to behold.

The Daily Mail reports that Lolita's father, Armenian energy tycoon Eldar Osmanova, spent over $10 million dollars on the wedding, including $500,000 on flowers, and goodness knows how much to fly in Lady Gaga to perform. It's wild!

Inside the first Armenian dual-language classes in L.A. Unified



At Mountain View Elementary School in Tujunga about three-fourths of the population is of Armenian heritage. Parents have been looking for years for a way to pass on the language and culture to their children.

Some left for the neighboring Glendale Unified School District, which has had an Armenian dual-immersion program for years.

Shakeh Ayvazian, a Los Angeles Unified School District parent community facilitator, noticed that parents were making moves to leave for other districts, and worked with them to push for a similar program in L.A. Unified.

That was five years ago, she said. Last year, Mountain View launched a pilot program with two kindergarten classes. Students spent half their time in a classroom in which their teacher spoke only Armenian to them and half their time in an English-speaking classroom.

" Chills ran through my body as I recognized the woman in the photo as Varter Bogigian, a genocide survivor from Kharpert who lost her parents, her husband, and all six children before starting a new life in Worcester, Massachusetts, America’s oldest Armenian community... and, also, my hometown."

AYF: The History-Making Youth Movement at 85



The delegates and guests at the first annual ARF Tzeghagron (AYF) Convention at the Hairenik Headquarters in Boston, June 1-3, 1934 (Photo: ARF Archives)

Picture this: Armenian youth across the U.S. have gathered at the Hairenik Hall in Boston on a Friday night in June of 1934. Legendary statesman and military strategist Karekin (Garegin) Nejdeh and Justice Minister of the First Republic of Armenia turned Editor of the Hairenik Daily newspaper Reuben Darbinian deliver remarks after the singing of “Harach Nahadag.” In the midst of the gathering, the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) Central Committee of America gifts the youth in attendance a tricolor flag in a time when no independent Armenian Republic exists.

This was the first convention of the Armenian Youth Federation (AYF, known as the ARF Tzeghagrons until 1941). This gathering democratically set the foundation of the organization by adopting an organizational name, an anthem, and programs The founding convention also set forth the aims of the organization and elected the first AYF Central Executive body (Hamparsoum Gelanian, John Der Hovanessian, Hagop Hagopian, Arthur Giragosian, and K. Merton Bozoian).

As the AYF enters its 85th year, it is important to take a step back to understand the climate during the time of its foundation. In the 1930s, young Armenians were galvanizing under the leadership of Nejdeh to address the challenges of their communities as well as their homeland abroad. The Armenian community in the United States was a few decades old, yet cultural assimilation was a central topic of discussion. The First Republic of Armenia had succumbed to the Soviets and was nowhere near independence, and though Turkey had become Kemalist, the treatment of Armenians there remained unchanged.

When the concept of the AYF came into being, the memories of the Armenian Genocide were still haunting its survivors who had witnessed the horrific events. As a people, we were traumatized, disheartened, and discouraged. With the adoption of the Immigration Act of 1924 placing strict limits on the number of immigrants—including Armenians—who could arrive in America, followed by the Great Depression of 1929, Armenians were in no easy position to rise up and unite to fight for the Armenian Cause.
Many were struggling to adjust to their new life on foreign soil. Therefore, it was an absolute necessity for the diaspora in America to cultivate an identity and mobilize. It was also imperative that the youth come together to garner the support and strength needed to pursue the path of justice for the Armenian Cause.

That mission was given to one noble man who was a proven leader in Armenia and abroad. General Nejdeh was assigned this responsibility, and it was he who defied all odds to become the central architect of a youth movement that to this day remains on solid footings.
In April 1933, just three months after the decision of the ARF Central Committee of America to create a national youth organization, Nejdeh arrived in Boston as a fieldworker, as announced in the Hairenik Daily.
His arrival was followed by a cross-country tour to preach to the masses and encourage the youth to mobilize. He was tasked with reviving the spirits of those who were trying to preserve Armenian traditions and were trying to strengthen their loyalties to the free world. The headlines of the Hairenik Daily tell of new chapters of Tzeghagrons being created in their respective cities shortly thereafter. Simultaneously, Nejdeh’s writings, published in a series from 1933-1934, were aimed at addressing the upcoming generation of Armenian youth in America.
In the year and a half he spent in North America, close to 40 chapters were formed from coast to coast (see table for chapters and number of members). Nejdeh’s charisma and bold demeanor inspired throngs of youth to take action and set a legacy for generations to follow.

The first convention essentially set the foundation of the AYF that generations of youth would follow and continue to follow today. The Hairenik article about the convention describes the hall as decorated with the Armenian colors and photographs of Kristapor Mikaelian, Simon Zavarian, and Stepan (Rostom) Zorian. In addition to Nejdeh and Darbinian, representatives of the Armenian Relief Society (ARS) and the ARF were present to deliver their remarks. Songs were sung, poetry was recited, and live Armenian music was played.

Nejdeh began his remarks by defining Tzeghagronutyun, which he explained was the putting of Armenianness above all. He believed that this was the unifying factor for Armenians everywhere. “In America, the Tzeghagron movement has officially found its path,” he concluded. In turn, Darbinian announced that the work of this new generation revolves around three factors: keeping future generations Armenian, fighting for our nationalistic goals and values, and developing the Tzeghagron movement.
What started with chapters in the U.S. in subsequent years became a prominent international youth organization functioning in most countries that boast a diasporan community. The ranks of the AYF are living examples of devotion and commitment to our national goals. And although each region has its own set of programs and actions, the love for homeland, the unique camaraderie, and the AYF mission unite the youth groups under one noble mission.
In a June 7, 1934 article in the Hairenik, M. Vrouyr describes how 12-year-old Anahid Chaderdjian said she wishes future conventions to be held in the homeland. Unfortunately, many AYF ungers (comrades) did not see the revival of an Armenian statehood they had tirelessly worked for during their lifetime. Their successors, however, have been able to live at a time when not only are AYF meetings held in a free Armenia, but numerous programs are carried out to give an opportunity for Diasporan Armenian youth to interact with local youth; when members and alumni have repatriated to Armenia; when Armenia has become a place where Diasporan youth can make a direct impact.
To the AYF member, the homeland is not just an impractical dream or a “land of our forefathers”—it is a place where they consider themselves to be participants in the nation-building process.

A June 6, 1934 article in the Hairenik Weekly on the first ARF Tzeghagron convention. The headline reads, “The Convention of the Tzeghagron Chapters: In Honor of the New Generation” (Photo: Hairenik Archives)

There is no better way to sum up the founding years of the organization than to use a term coined by the Hairenik Weekly (English, now The Armenian Weekly) on June 7, 1934: a “History Making Youth Movement.”
Today, the youth movement has achieved 85 years of accomplishments and continues with the same vigor and renewed energy to continue its community involvement and grassroots activism. And with every challenge that it tackles, every idea that it develops, every project that it strategizes, or vision it works toward, the AYF continues to serve its communities and homeland and remains steadfast toward the ideals of a free, independent, and united Armenia.

2. Abdülhamit'ten kaçan Ermeni genci başarıya götüren halıların hikayesi


ABD’nin Minnesota eyaletinin, en büyük tirajı olan gazetesi “Star Tribune”, Batı Ermenistan’dan (günümüz Türkiye toprakları) göç ettirilen bir Ermeni’nin başarıya giden yolunu sayfalarına taşıdı.

1874 yılında dünyaya gelen Bedros Kelcik hakkında makalede şöyle yazıyor: “Ailenin 11 çocuğundan 8. olup Ermeni Apostolik Kilisesinin geleneklerine göre büyütüldü. 1800’lü yılların başında Osmanlı Sultan Abdülhamit II, Ermenilerin ve diğer Hristiyan azınlıkların, 3000 yıldan beri yaşadıkları topraklardan sürgün edilmesini öngören bir projeyi kabul etmişti”.

Kurt Braun imzasıyla çıkan makalede, 15 yaşındaki Bedros Kelcik’in, vatanından sürgün edildikten sonra günlük 40 mil yürümeye mecbur kaldığı anlatılıyor. Amerika’ya varma hayalini aklına koyan Ermeni genç, bu zorlu ve zorunlu yolculuktan 5 yıl sonra başına gelenleri “New York Times”a şöyle anlatmıştı:

“Asla unutmayacağım korkunç bir yolculuktu. Yukarıdan yakıcı güneş, aşağıdan yanan toprak: fakat bizim durmaya hakkımız yoktu. İki gün sonra ayakkabılarımız yırtıldı, toprağın sıcaklığına dayanamaz hale geldik, kıyafetlerimizi yırtarak ayaklarımızı sarmaya mecbur kaldık”.

Bu acı yolculuktan tam on yıl sonra, yani 1900 yılında Bedros Kelcik, Minnesota’nın merkezi Saint Paul şehrinde halı temizleme ve onarım merkezi açtı. Bugün de, kuruluşundan yaklaşık 120 yıl sonra Bedros’un torunu Mark, dedesinin işini aynı merkezde devam ettiriyor.

Bedros’un torunları Tom ile Mark, dedelerinin Amerika’ya kadarki yolculuğunu ve başarıya ulaşmadan önceki tüm kayıp ve başarısızlıklarını ayrıntılarla anlatan bir makale yayınladı. Genç yaşında Amerika’ya gelen ve tek bir kelime İngilizce bilmeyen dedelerinin, defalarca herşeyi kaybettiği, bazen başının üstünde bir çatı bile olmadığı, iş dünyasındaki ilk denemeleri ile başarısızlıkları anlatıldı.

Başta aylık 15 dolar kirayla Saint Paul’da dükkan kiralayan Bedros Kelcik, bir gün ünlü bir avukattan 5 dolar karşılığına bir eski halı satın almış. Bir hafta sonra dükkanın yanından geçen avukat, vitrinde çok şık bir halı görünce bunun aynı halı olduğunu anlamış. “Ne dersiniz, şimdi halınız artık hoşunuza gidiyor mu?” diye soran Bedros’un yaptığına hayran kalan avukat, onun işine birkaç bin dolarlık yatırım yapmış.

1920 yılında Minneapolis’te ikinci dükkanını açan Bedros, zamanla büyük ün kazandı. Daha sonra işini Chikago, Los Angeles ve New York’a da taşıdı. Ünlü Ermeni iş adamı, hayatının 85. yılında akciğer kanserinden vefat etti.

Did SoCal Cop, Mystery Texas Lady, LA Mobsters & Drug Cartel Unite?



World ain’t what it seems, is it Gunny? (Illustration by Jeff Drew for OC Weekly)

Orange County resident John Saro Balian worked as a cop with the Glendale Police Department and maintained an eyebrow-raising relationship with a Texas woman identified as “SS” in federal law-enforcement files. On multiple occasions, Balian flew to Brownsville and crossed the international border into Mexico with “SS.” One of Balian’s numerous “burner” phones was registered in the name of “SS.” According to an FBI organized-crime task force, from December 2015 to January 2018, Balian and “SS” called each other 1,534 times.

During her association with Balian, “SS” also maintained a romantic relationship with a high-ranking member of the Gulf Cartel, a Mexican organized-crime syndicate based in Matamoros, located across the Rio Grande river from Brownsville. The cartel’s history includes bribing American politicians, prosecutors and cops, as well as committing ruthless violence to smuggle cocaine, humans, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine into the United States. A declassified 2017 “National Drug Threat Assessment” by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) estimated the gang shipped 900 pounds of cocaine monthly into the U.S. Its members are also known for kidnapping, extortion, money laundering and grotesque executions.

Robert A. Hanamirian, 80, international tax lawyer

http://media.philly.com/images/070418_hanamirian_1200.jpg

Robert A. Hanamirian, 80, of Fort Washington and New York City, who was the son of Armenian immigrants and rose to become an international tax lawyer, died Monday, June 25, of natural causes at his New York home.

From 2001 until 2018, Mr. Hanamirian was a tax lawyer with the firm of Kranjac Tripodi & Partners LLP on Wall Street. For the last five years, he had also been of counsel at the Moorestown law firm run by his son, John M. Hanamirian.

From 1995 to 2001, Mr. Hanamirian operated a solo law firm from his Fort Washington home.

A first-generation Armenian American, Mr. Hanamirian was born in Philadelphia to Mooshegh and Hratcha Hanamirian, who fled the Ottoman Empire in 1915 in response to the slaughter of Armenian citizens by Turks. The Armenian Genocide resulted in the deaths of 1.5 million Armenians in what is now Turkey.His parents lived in China before reaching the United States in 1920. Once in Philadelphia, they became the proprietors of the York Market, a general store in Chestnut Hill. They owned and operated a Middle Eastern frozen foods company elsewhere in Philadelphia.

Initially, Mr. Hanamirian spoke only Armenian. He graduated from Cheltenham High School, where he played football. He graduated from Temple University and Temple’s Beasley School of Law, and later completed a master of taxation degree at New York University School of Law.

Although first in his law-school class, Mr. Hanamirian encountered ethnic bias when he applied for work at some of the “white shoe” Philadelphia law firms, his family said.

He responded by emphasizing the paralegal work he had done in law school, and was soon hired as an associate lawyer by the Philadelphia law firm of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP. He worked for Schnader for 11 years, and for other Philadelphia law firms and in solo practice, before joining Kranjac Tripodi.

“He was known for international tax strategy and planning,” his son said. “He liked the esoteric nature of the different [countries’] laws and treaties, and enjoyed that intellect challenge.”

In 1960, Mr. Hanamirian married Pauline Kash. The couple had two children whom they raised in Fort Washington. The couple divorced in 1980. Pauline Chapjian, as she became after remarrying, survives.

In 1983, he married Sharon M. Hanamirian, who also survives.

Like his father, John M. Hanamirian became a lawyer. Mr. Hanamirian’s daughter, Deborah Nareen Hanamirian, had multiple sclerosis. She lived at Inglis House, where the family visited frequently. She died in 2016 at age 54.

“They were very much alike,” Mr. Hanamirian’s son said of his father and sister. “She was very strong-minded. They were not people who let things defeat them. They were really kindred spirits.”

Mr. Hanamirian loved animals, especially his German shepherd, Toby.

In addition to his son, wife, and former wife, Mr. Hanamirian is survived by two granddaughters and a sister.

Mr. Hanamirian chose cremation. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, July 23, at Lawnview Cemetery, 500 Huntingdon Pike, Rockledge. The family will receive guests afterward at Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church, 101 Ashmead Rd., Cheltenham.

Memorial donations may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America via https://mymsaa.org/.

NASA to award highest honor to Armenian-American astronomer

NASA has announced it will award the Distinguished Public Service Medal, its highest honor, to astronomer Yervant Terzian, the Tisch Distinguished Professor Emeritus, who is of Armenian descent, the Carl Sagan Institute said.

The medal will be presented by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston on August 2. The ceremony will be broadcast live on NASA TV.

“Dr. Yervant Terzian has dedicated his life to education, public service and scientific research,” according to NASA in its award citation. “He has used his enthusiasm for space exploration and education to bring inspirational experiences to students and the general public across the country.”

NASA continued: “Dr. Yervant Terzian has made an indelible impact on education and inspiring young minds. … He has evoked comprehension and wonder in his students and in his public audiences. These accomplishments and his eminent humanity prove Dr. Terzian worthy of this Distinguished Public Service Medal.”

Terzian has served on eight NASA committees, including the Hubble Space Telescope Fellowship Committee, NASA’s Diversity in Science Education and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Radio Astronomy Evaluation Committee. For 20 years, Terzian directed the NASA New York Space Grant Consortium, comprising 19 universities and five industries and science centers. In 2012, the 52 state NASA Space Grant directors elected Terzian chairman.

“The Space Grant has been very successful in implementing space programs for the brightest students across New York state to provide them with opportunities to develop their interest in space,” said Terzian. “This is what will keep the United States as the leader.”

For 12 years, Terzian served as a visiting lecturer in astronomy for the American Astronomical Society, traveling across the U.S. enhancing college communities’ scientific understanding of the universe. He has also contributed to dozens of radio and television programs for public listeners, on topics such as life in the universe, NASA and the space program, the U.S. space shuttle program, and the state of astronomy.

Terzian said he has been inspired throughout his life by the ancient Greeks and their deductive method of science. “When I was very young and asked my father why there were stars, I was not satisfied with the answers, and I started reading everything I could from the American Library in Cairo,” he explained. “The description of nature through our science, through our scientific methods, is still young, and we should expect major discoveries in the future. From the work humans have achieved so far, we can deduce that we are not alone in the universe, and the day will come that we will find life in other planets.”

Terzian is known for his studies of stellar evolution and the discovery of regions of hydrogen gas between distant galaxies – a finding that indicated the presence of unseen matter in intergalactic space. His research using national radio astronomy observatories has been supported by NASA and the National Science Foundation. He is the author or co-author of more than 235 scientific publications and the editor of seven books, including “Carl Sagan’s Universe.”

A member of the faculty since 1965, Terzian served as chair of Cornell’s Department of Astronomy from 1979 to 1999. He initiated the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates program at Cornell, which offers summer research for students, particularly women and members of underrepresented groups.

Among Terzian’s many honors are NASA’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Republic of Armenia’s Gold Medal, its highest honor for scientific achievement. He was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2001.

At Cornell, Terzian has been recognized for the excellence of his teaching with the Clark Distinguished Teaching Award in 1984 and the Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellowship Award in 2001.

Armenian Fest draws record crowd to eat, dance, remember

They came from as far away as Boston, New York, Cape Cod and lower Connecticut to dance, to eat and to remember. Sept. 2 was the 30th anniversary of the St. Mark Armenian Church’s annual Armenian Fest, but to parishioner Sara Omartian, who was working the bakery table, the throng of fellow countrymen gathered under the nearby tent was something more.

“What you’re witnessing today is a miracle,” she said, referring to the 1915 genocide during which the Ottoman Empire tortured and killed one and one-half million Armenians – including her grandmother - and forced the remaining population into the Syrian Desert to die. “To be able to carry on the music, the cuisine.”

Both the music and cuisine was in clear evidence throughout the afternoon. Strains of traditional music floated through the crowd, provided by The Greg Krikorian Ensemble, a four piece Armenian quartet from the Boston area. Not far away another quartet of men worked over hot grills to prepare scores of authentic shish kabob and Armenian hamburger patties – a blend of two-thirds beef, one third lamb mixed with special spices – for waiting diners. On the long table behind the chefs, women from the parish packaged the kabobs and patties into grinder rolls, or full dinners, which included rice pilaf and a cucumber and tomato salad.

On adjoining tables, packages of Armenian spinach pies, string cheese, grape leaves, myriad sweets and demi-tasse cups of individually prepared Armenian coffee temped diners to savor the memories, and take some home for later.

“The line started at noon and three hours into it, there’s still a line [for the dinners],” David Jermakian, chairman of this year’s Fest told Reminder Publishing. Last year, the fest – which always takes place on the Sunday of the Labor Day weekend, drew nearly 500 in the pouring rain. With sunshine and temperate weather, Jermakian estimated this year’s event could easily draw 800.

“We won’t know exactly until the end, when we count the number of dinners we’ve sold,” he said, adding this year could be a record-breaker for the event.

The annual Fest itself is a bit of a miracle. According to Jermakian, St. Mark Armenian Church, located at 2427 Wilbraham Road, is a small parish with only 100 members.

“It’s quite a challenge to put on such a successful event, but somehow we manage to get it done,” he remarked, adding the Fest is the church’s biggest fundraiser of the year, raising nearly 20 percent of its annual budget.

His committee of 40 dedicated workers spends weeks in workshops preparing time-honored dishes and sweets, collecting supplies and taking care of all the other details necessary to put on a successful event.

“My mother’s mother started cooking these Armenian treats, then my mother, and now my daughters are continuing to create these delicacies,” he said.

Another crucial element for the volunteers is locating an authentic Armenian band to entertain Fest attendees.

“They play the same Armenian music that my grandparents, and their parents, have been listening to for over 100 years,” Jermakian said of The Greg Krikorian Ensemble. The crowd responded, with spontaneous groups spilling out onto the grassy field before the bandstand to take part in traditional Armenian line dances several times throughout the afternoon.

This year’s Fest also included tours of the church sanctuary in celebration of St. Mark Armenian Church’s 60th anniversary. Jermakian said the church was originally founded in 1953 on Dresden Street in Springfield, moving to its current Wilbraham Road location in 1983 following years of fundraising for a new church. The first outdoor event celebrating the Armenian culture took place on the Wilbraham Road grounds in 1988.

Christina Maranci to Present the Art of Armenia at Armenian Historical Association of Rhode Island



Prof. Christina Maranci of Tufts University will present her newly published book The Art of Armenia: An Introduction (Oxford Univ. Press) at the Armenian Historical Association of Rhode Island (AHARI) Museum, 245 Waterman Street, Providence, RI, on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. The program is co-sponsored by the Armenian Historical Association of Rhode Island and the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR).

Armenia has a material history and visual culture that reaches back to the Paleolithic era. Prof. Christina Maranci’s newly published The Art of Armenia: An Introduction, provides a survey of the arts of Armenia from antiquity to the early modern times. It covers a wide range of media, including architecture, stone sculpture, works in metal, wood, and cloth, manuscript illumination, and ceramic arts, and places Armenian art within broad historical, archeological, and cultural contexts. The Art of Armenia offers students, scholars, and heritage readers of the Armenian community something long desired but never before available: a complete and authoritative introduction to 3000 years of Armenian art, archeology, architecture, and design.

Christina Maranci is Arthur H. Dadian and Ara T. Oztemel Professor of Armenian Art and serves as Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Tufts University, as well as an academic advisor to the Armenian Museum of America and to NAASR. She has published and lectured widely, having authored three previous monographs and over seventy essays, articles, and reviews, including the books Medieval Armenian Architecture: Constructions of Race and Nation (2001) and Vigilant Powers: Three Churches of Early Medieval Armenia (2015). For the latter work in 2016 she received from NAASR the Dr. Sona Aronian Book Prize for Excellence in Armenian Studies. Her work combines scholarship on the history of Armenian art and architecture with advocacy for at-risk Armenian heritage, particularly medieval monuments in the Republic of Turkey.

The AHARI Museum will be open at 6:15 p.m. Copies of The Art of Armenia will be available for purchase and signing at AHARI on the night of the lecture.

Contact NAASR at (617) 489-1610 or hq@naasr.org or AHARI at (401) 454-5111 or info@armenianhistorical-ri.org for more information.

PROVIDENCE, RI
