This Friday, a lucky honoree will use it to light the Olympic cauldron in a grand, symbolic start to the games.  While the blaze looks like any other, its origins are special: It was lit not with matches or a Zippo lighter, but with a parabolic mirror, echoing rituals from Ancient Greece.   read more

Statement: Turkey's Provocations Are Alarming and a Danger
 
WASHINGTON -- Supreme President Carl R. Hollister has issued the following statement:
 
"Turkey's ongoing acts of provocation in the eastern Mediterranean--let alone in the broader region--are alarming and a danger. Turkish aggression unnecessarily elevates tensions, contributes to instability, is a detriment to achieving peace, and violates international law. We are deeply concerned. 

"Furthermore, Turkey's hostile actions are not in the best interest of the U.S. and are not attributes of a NATO partner. Today, a former U.S. ambassador to Turkey, and a former national security adviser to Vice President Joe Biden, wrote an op-ed titled, 'Turkey is Out of Control.' 

"This past weekend, Turkish warships blocked a rig belonging to Italian energy firm ENI from reaching Cypriot waters where the rig had intended to start exploring for gas. The U.S. government has stated it supports the Republic of Cyprus' right to explore for energy resources in its exclusive economic zone.  
 
"Separately, this morning, a Turkish coast guard vessel rammed a coast guard vessel of fellow NATO partner Greece, elevating tensions in the eastern Mediterranean.  Incidents such as this one, in addition to many others that have occurred, prompted U.S. Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Pyatt to express concern about the possibility of an 'accident' happening in the Aegean.
 
"We call for the international community to denounce resoundingly Turkey's acts of provocation and address Turkey's aggression in the eastern Mediterranean and the broader region at the highest levels of government."
 
Supreme President Hollister has sent a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that conveys the community's concerns.

Groups Hail Third Three-Country Leadership Mission
The joint delegation with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
An 18-member delegation of leaders of the American Hellenic and American Jewish organizations completed a third, three-country Leadership Mission to Greece, Cyprus and Israel, to explore the major political, economic and security developments underway in the eastern Mediterranean and to advance the interests of the United States in the region. 
 
In a post-mission statement, the groups noted: "Our meetings clearly revealed that the trilateral relationship between Israel, Cyprus and Greece is on a sustained course and is expanding on all levels. We believe the relationship has developed into a partnership, helping to foster peace and stability in the eastern Mediterranean and the broader region where instability exists. Further, the partnership possesses the potential to allow the eastern Mediterranean to become a community of nations based on shared common values and aspirations. To this end, we hope the trilateral partnership blossoms into a multilateral one..."  read the entire statement

Complex engineering and metal-work discovered beneath ancient Greek 'pyramid'
The Guardian (Jan. 18)
 
More than 4,000 years ago builders carved out the entire surface of a naturally pyramid-shaped promontory on the Greek island of Keros. They shaped it into terraces covered with 1,000 tonnes of specially imported gleaming white stone to give it the appearance of a giant stepped pyramid rising from the Aegean: the most imposing manmade structure in all the Cyclades archipelago.  read more 
 
Huge protest in Greece over use of 'Macedonia' in name dispute
NBC News (Jan. 22)
 
Hundreds of thousands of Greeks rallied on Sunday in protest at any use of "Macedonia" in resolving the 25-year-old dispute between Athens and Skopje over the neighboring ex-Yugoslav republic's name.  Greece says the name Macedonia implies a territorial claim over its own northern region of that name. The two countries agreed earlier this month to renew efforts to settle the row, which has blocked the republic's attempts to join NATO and the European Union. Both countries say they hope to reach an accord by June.  read more

American researchers, led by Greek scientist Prof. Nickolas Papadopoulos, have developed a single blood test which screens for eight common cancer types and helps identify the location of the disease.  The test, called CancerSEEK, simultaneously evaluates levels of eight cancer proteins and the presence of cancer gene mutations from circulating DNA in the blood.  It is aimed at screening for eight common cancer types that account for more than 60 percent of cancer deaths in the U.S. Five of the cancers covered by the test currently have no screening test.  read more

Face of 9,000-Year-Old Teenager Reconstructed 
National Geographic (Jan. 19)
 
Her name is Avgi, and the last time anyone saw her face was nearly 9,000 years ago. When she lived in Greece, at the end of the Mesolithic period around 7000 B.C., the region was transitioning from a society of hunter gatherers to one that began cultivating its own food.  In English, Avgi translates to Dawn-a name archaeologists chose because she lived during what's considered the dawn of civilization.  read more

Νέα Υόρκη, Γλιτώνει το «λουκέτο» το Άγαλμα της Ελευθερίας. Εκτύπωση
News - ΟΜΟΓΕΝΕΙΑ
Δευτέρα, 22 Ιανουάριος 2018 13:01

Νέα Υόρκη,

Γλιτώνει το «λουκέτο» το Άγαλμα της Ελευθερίας.
66831-liberty statue

Το Άγαλμα της Ελευθερίας φαίνεται τελικά πως θα γλυτώσει από το «λουκέτο» -την αναστολή λειτουργίας των ομοσπονδιακών υπηρεσιών στις ΗΠΑ- καθώς αν και έκλεισε από το πρωί του Σαββάτου για τους τουρίστες εξαιτίας του μπρα ντε φερ στο Κογκρέσο για τον προϋπολογισμό, θα ανοίξει εκ νέου σήμερα.

«Η πολιτεία της Νέας Υόρκης θα ανοίξει και πάλι το Άγαλμα της Ελευθερίας» ήταν το tweet που έστειλε χθες ο Δημοκρατικός κυβερνήτης της Νέας Υόρκης Άντριου Κουόμο.

«Δεν επιτρέψουμε το κλείσιμο αυτού του συμβόλου της ελευθερίας και των ευκαιριών».

Το μνημείο «είναι σημαντικό για την οικονομία» της περιοχής, υπογράμμισε, όμως «είναι κάτι παραπάνω από αυτό. Είναι το σύμβολο της Νέας Υόρκης και των αξιών μας (…). Το μήνυμά του δεν υπήρξε ποτέ τόσο σημαντικό όσο σήμερα».

Η πολιτεία της Νέας Υόρκης θα πληρώσει από τα δικά της ταμεία τους ομοσπονδιακούς υπαλλήλους που θα χρειαστεί προκειμένου να επιτραπεί εκ νέου η πρόσβαση των τουριστών στο Άγαλμα της Ελευθερίας και το μουσείο μετανάστευσης. Το κόστος ανέρχεται σε 65.000 δολάρια την ημέρα, διευκρίνισε ο Κουόμο, κατά τη διάρκεια μιας συνέντευξης τύπου στο Μανχάταν.

Το άγαλμα στη νήσο της Ελευθερίας και το μουσείο στη νήσο Έλις, τα οποία επισκέπτονται ετησίως περίπου 4,5 εκατομμύρια τουρίστες, είχαν κλείσει από χθες το πρωί.
