Only a handful of NBA players have as much potential as Giannis Antetokounmpo, the so-called Greek Freak who's having a breakout year for the Milwaukee Bucks. Antetokounmpo is just 19 years old. He's 6'11" with a 7'3" wingspan. Hardcore NBA followers have been watching him since he came into the league in 2013, and it's only a matter of time before mainstream fans catch on to what he can do.
His ascent isn't going to be as smooth or immediate as that of Anthony Davis. He didn't attend college in the US and had little experience playing against the best teams in Europe when the Bucks drafted him straight out of Greece in 2013.
The two-month loan will also reopen the debate about whether the marbles should be returned to Greece. The Greek government has argued for the past four decades that the 2,500-year-old sculptures belong in a museum in Athens. The British Museum is the most generous lender in the world, MacGregor said.
However, no talks had ever been held with the Greek government about a loan of part of the Parthenon marbles. “To date they have always made it clear that they would not return them. That rather puts the conversation on pause,” the director said.
On November 6, 2014, Roy Sher’s award-winning international feature documentary on the life of the iconic Greek-Jewish singer Roza Eskenazi will premiere in London. “My Sweet Canary” follows the life of three young musicians – Mehtap Demir, Tomer Katz and Martha D. Lewis – as they trace Eskenazi’s exuberant musical journey and explore the history of rebetiko music.
I don't know if it's possible to describe how wonderful Rembetiko music is! Imagine love, passion, lust, angst and longing, with highlights of humor and low-lights of wickedness, all written into music on the fumes of illegally smoked substances.
The story features the curse/blessing of a mystical talisman, the necklace of Athena, that must be found and destroyed by a mortal son of Poseidon. It is a fantasy adventure of Greek myths and time travel that’s suitable for all ages.
The honeymoon is over for the internationally acclaimed human rights attorney— and new wife of George Clooney.

The findings published in the British Medical Journal included data from 4,676 women from the Nurses’ Health Study — an ongoing study running since 1976 that has been following over 120,000 nurses from the United States. The participants filled out food frequency questionnaires periodically (about every 4 years), and had blood tests for measurement of telomere length. The Alternate Mediterranean Diet Score was used to assess adherence to the diet.
The results showed that greater adherence to a Mediterranean diet — characterized by high intake of vegetables, olive oil, fruit, legumes and less red meat and saturated fats — was significantly associated with longer telomere length.
The researchers noted that oxidative stress can accelerate telomere weakening and the established effect of the Mediterranean diet on oxidative stress may explain its effect on telomere length.
The researchers concluded that the results further support the benefits of adherence to the Mediterranean diet for promoting health and longevity.
With the support of EU funding, a research project was set up to study a crucial period of Greek history. The approach is unique, due to the focus on the historical documentation of the period and the use of a specific text, the author and composition date of which are unknown

Loukanikos, the Greek dog that accompanied protestors on the front line of demonstrations in 2011 against harsh austerity measures imposed by the Greek government, has passed away. A fond farewell was penned by Petros Katsakos (in Greek) in the newspaper Avgi. The dog was globally famous and was featured on numerous magazine front covers as a symbol of protest.
