Basic facts about Greece

first_imgA woman begs with her child in Athens, Greece. Some 70 percent of Greekchildren live in jobless households.The austerity program imposed on Greece in 2010 by the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund has had a devastating effect.Greece is a developed European country of some 11 million people, including 1 million immigrants. As in the U.S., 80 percent of its workers are in service industries, especially tourism in Greece. But it has a significant industrial sector and its merchant navy is the largest in the world, followed by Japan.Greece, which occupies the southern part of the Balkans, has the largest economy in that region and has attracted many economic migrants from other Balkan countries. Between 1995 and 2005, testifying to a sharp labor shortage, workers in Greece put in the most hours per year of any European nation. (Groningen Growth and Development Centre, Oct. 6, 2008)It has also attracted refugees fleeing war and repression in the Middle East.The 2008 capitalist recession and the austerity program imposed on Greece have had major impacts on the rates of poverty, unemployment and economic growth.Poverty: In 2009, one year before the imposition of austerity, less than 3 percent of the population had incomes below the poverty line. By the end of 2013, 44 percent were living in poverty. (Public Policy Analysis Group, Athens University) Some 70 percent of Greek children live in jobless households. (Greece Reporter, May 29, 2014)Unemployment: In 2010, the IMF predicted that unemployment would peak at nearly 15 percent by 2012. But one year later official unemployment had climbed to 25.6 percent and by 2014 it stood at 27.7 percent.Economic growth: The IMF in 2010 also predicted that the economy would “follow a V-shaped pattern” — a short sharp contraction (depression) followed by a quick recovery and steady growth after 2012. Instead, Greece’s gross domestic product had declined by nearly one third by the end of 2014. This is on a par with what the Great Depression of the 1930s did to the United States.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Exclusive: Rightmove lures back departed agents with discounts and rolling contracts

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Exclusive: Rightmove lures back departed agents with discounts and rolling contracts previous nextMarketingExclusive: Rightmove lures back departed agents with discounts and rolling contractsMany but not all of the agents who left during the height of the ‘Say No To Rightmove’ campaign have now taken the ‘sweetener’ deals on offer to return.Nigel Lewis14th April 202101,578 Views Rightmove is offering agents who left the portal during last year’s ‘Say No To Rightmove’ (SNTRM) campaign a £1,250 plus VAT a month deal to return, although this varies slightly from agent to agent.The Neg has been shown paperwork and emails confirming that half a dozen of the agencies that walked away last year are being enticed back with a 15-20% discount on the portal’s new joiners fee for a basic package, which for some is less than they were paying before leaving.Some are also being offered free additional features as a sweetener to persuade them to return, and rolling contracts after an initial six-month fixed term.One of the agents, Dreamview Estates in North London, says it was told that the new joiners rate would normally be £1,550 +VAT but that, to persuade it to return, it would pay £1,390 plus VAT if it committed to a minimum six-month contract.“I checked back to see what I was paying before I left and its was £1,230, so they are offering my old rate back to me more or less instead of paying full whack,” says Dreamview Estates founder Murray Lee, who was one of the SNTRM organisers (pictured).“We weren’t able to topple Rightmove in the end but we did make the portal recognise that it needed to take action on its fees and, at least for those who walked away last year, that has been the case.”Other agents offered the same or a very similar deal include Eli Grossnass of Eli G Estates which like Dreamview has decided to reject the offer and stay off Rightmove for the time being.Lee adds: “We have proved that Rightmove can be made to sit up and take some notice of the smaller, independent agents. Dreamview may return at some point in the future but it very much depends on the rate.But with a rolling contract, what have I got to lose?”Another independent London agency, who wished to remain anonymous, said he had also been offered the same £1,250 plus VAT after leaving Rightmove several months ago.“We had a prepared statement to give to customers if they asked why we weren’t on Rightmove, but really it was my staff who lobbied for our agency to return to the portal,” its MD says.“So we’ve gone back but only on a basic package with a couple of free features which, along with the discount, means I’m saving £400 or so a month on my originally subscription. I know at least one other agency friend of mine who has got the same deal – £1250 per month for six months, then a rolling contract.”Eli G Estates #SayNoToRightmove movement Murray Lee of Dreamview Estates Rightmove April 14, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Love’s Labours Not Lost

first_imgLost in Translationis a film at once sardonically funny and deeply melancholic. It is a series of moments frozen in time that suggest a pastiche lovingly put together by director Sofia Coppola (daughter of Francis Ford of The Godfather fame).Central to the film is the relationship between Bob (Bill Murray) and Charlotte (Scarlett Johannsen), two disillusioned souls who meet in a Tokyo hotel bar and ease their mutual insomnia by traversing night-time Japan together. He is a jaded actor, past his prime and shooting an absurd commercial for Suntori Whiskey, for which he despises himself. She is accompanying her semi-famous photographer husband and struggling with a growing sense of loneliness as his work begins to take precedence over her.Both leads are brilliantly acted. Murray gives a subdued and deeply-nuanced performance that is all the funnier for its not being forced. He portrays a man tired of pretence who is almost resigned to unhappiness. Johansson’s performance, though less notablyacclaimed, is wonderfully mature and lends her character a luminous wistfulness that underlines Charlotte’s inner fragility. There is a quiet assurance in the way this film goes about its work that is refreshingly subtle. The relationship between Bob and Charlotte is never forced, and one senses the growing bond between them as companionship alone prevents confusion and loneliness. There is much patience and beauty in the way the plot is allowed todevelop, through the use of sparse dialogue and shared glances. It is a film made up of snapshots: looks exchanged across the bar; Bob’s helplessly heartfelt (and off-key) crooning to Charlotte at a karaoke lounge; the final moment where he runs through a crowd and whispers something in her ear to which we are not privy.The film offers no quick fix romantic solution and never shies away from the problems of its characters. At one point Charlotte asks Bill if it all “gets any easier” and he answers with brutal honesty: no. They emerge at the end of it all with no real answers, but are happier nonethless.Despite its lugubrious undertones the film is very funny. It istrue that much of the humour plays on cultural differences but this is done without ever becoming too crude or crass.Lost in Translation is a film full of intrinsic humanity; it is sad, funny and moving, often simultaneously so. It is quietly confident, classy and brave, traits that it certainly shares with its director. Not one to miss.Archive: 0th week HT 2004last_img read more

Greece is the Word for Trinity Term

first_imgThis week, The Oxford Playhouse plays host to an epic tale of war, the fall of a great city and the power of the female spirit in an innovative production of Euripides’ Trojan Women, produced by Kieran White and translated and directed by Avery T Willis. It is a phenomenal production, incorporating influences from many different cultures to create a unique sensory experience. From Poseidon’s (Adam Perchard) first entry on stilts, this is an excellently choreographed and staged production. The interplay between the characters is good and the script is interspersed with music and dance in a way that supports and enhances Willis’ translation. The costumes and the music form a convincing background to the dance moves. In general, the visual and acoustic elements convey much of the meaning and effect of the play. Liz Brook’s Hecuba is a fantastic evocation of a woman who has lost everything. She vacillates between despair and venom, her face and voice conveying many different emotions, in an impressive performance which transfixes the audience. Chip Horne as Talthybios successfully manages to portray the dilemma of a man who is ill at ease with his role and the news he has to bear. The scene in which Andromache loses her son is heartrendingly poignant and thoroughly gripping. Elisabeth Gray’s performance as Andromache is convincing and emotive and Kate Sagovsky as Cassandra gives an impressive performance of a woman gone mad. She has immersed herself (as have all the actors) completely in her role. Her tribal-inspired dance into a state of frenzy, complete with flamboyant costume and a soundtrack of drumming is one of the most memorable visual moments of the play. Trojan Woman is without question a play not to be missed – it is a thought-provoking, intelligent and well-oiled production which appeals to the senses. Moreover, it is characterised by both brilliant individual performances and a cohesive chorus. Several moments send shivers down the spine, and the dance and music subject the audience to the whole spectrum of emotions. Get down to the Oxford Playhouse.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2004last_img read more

ANN ENNIS OVERVIEW OF GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES

first_imgWhen we open a water tap, local county government is involved. When an uninsured motorist hits our car, local government is involved. Whether it is sanitary practices of restaurants, a rickety bridge, rehabilitating first time drug offenders or getting married, our county governments are the underpinning that holds our communities together, keep order and assure safety.The General Assembly directed budgeting when mixed into county and education affairs mucks it up. Big federal and state government need to stay out of local taxpayer and local government’s pocketbooks, out of schools and away from unfunded mandates.County councils, county commissioners, town councils, and school boards are hometown heroes. With much of county and local tax money being sucked up to Indianapolis it is on a detour before coming back home. County officials then have to work long and hard to find ways to keep our communities functioning.They do not need or want the glitz and glamor of Indianapolis. They don’t get entertained by lobbyists. The county voter knows where elected county leaders live, go to church, eat and shop. As a result, elected county leaders hear the complaints and concerns of everyday people. The party caucus does not come calling on the county councilman. The state-wide party campaign committee does not fund the councilwoman’s election. But these two catch the heat of the voter.In District 64 at least, the five counties’ officials catch the heat that comes from actions by our remote, un-known, disconnected General Assembly. The officials tell me they are not called for advice from representatives before those reps. head up-state to vote every winter. A representative should seek input from the community served.My experience has been that attending a county council meeting is good for a voter and taxpayer’s morale. Being a county council person is not necessarily good for the council persons’ morale! They work hard to navigate stripped down budgets after Indianapolis has taken its share and state mandates.But what you see in town and county councils are hardworking people holding their communities in good social order, while trying to also improve services, function and quality of life. You see nickel and dimes matter – and even more so when the dollars are in Indianapolis.That is what you see in the City Halls. Now, what we must begin to see in the General Assembly are state representatives who are more familiar with their districts’ elected leaders than they are with their respective caucus or lobbyist of the moment. I pledge to provide that type of representation.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
