Further, the partnership possesses the potential to allow the eastern Mediterranean to become a community of nations based on shared common values and aspirations.

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

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
