Turkey Hacks?

Has anyone ever tried this Cook's Illustrated turkey recipe? It purports to cook a 12-14 lb bird in two hours. I'm a bit skeptical. [more inside]

Kosher substitute for salt pork

Kosher substitute for salt pork? We want to make an America's Test Kichen recipe for Thanksgiving turkey. It calls for salt pork to be laid along the back of the turkey during the first part of the roasting process (with the breast-side down), like so. ATK says this is called "barding" the turkey, which they say makes the bird "self-basting." [more inside]

Europe in late October?

Due to very busy schedules, the earliest time we can take a vacation this year is the second half of October. We originally planned to go to Turkey, but Lonely Planet says that Cappadocia basically shuts down due to cold in mid October. So is that true, and if so, what other similar places would you suggest for a week at that time of year, in Europe? A little culture would be nice, since the rest of the tip will be spent in the Greek isles.

Should I buy currency now in case the US dollar falls before my big trip?

Should I buy some Turkish currency now, ahead of my two-week September trip to Istanbul, to hedge against the (hopefully remote) possibility that U.S. politicians will not raise the debt ceiling by August?

Diversity song

Does anyone know the name of this music video that was very popular in Turkey the last few months: the artist is a woman singing in Hindi (I think); the song is about 'different colors' (we are all different) and has diverse characters - with a lot of diverse styles. It is a real catchy song and a the video is full of beautiful colors.
