lesvos1“The issue of homelessness is shapeless of the country of origin and colourless,” Father Nektarios said.”It’s just an issue, and they know that should be interested in it but there’s no kind of colour in it to attract their attention more than anything else, like the weather or the football.”
Father Nektarios says the money raised will go towards several initiatives, to continue to feed people.

WAS THERE EVER A TIME WHEN SO FEW PEOPLE CONTROLLED SO MUCH WEALTH?

luxury3Oxfam’s latest report claims that income inequality has reached a new global extreme, exceeding even its predictions from the previous year.The figures behind this claim are striking – just 62 individuals now hold the same wealth as the bottom half of humanity, compared with 80 in 2014 and 388 in 2010. It appears that not only have the global elite weathered the financial crisis, but their fortunes have collectively improved.

Adelaide: German-influenced wine and cakes make a foodie heaven

Author: Administrator

29/01/2016

adelais“Welcome to Adelaide!” my friends messaged me. Yeah, yeah.My arrival had been much more congenial: a perfect powder blue sky and the promise that the place was on the up and up. Between the rejuvenation of Adelaide’s restaurant and bar scene, the broadening of the Barossa’s appeal beyond wine sales at the cellar door and the redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval sports precinct, the southern capital was, I had been told, having its moment in the sun.

fdg1Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have looked outside Italy for runway inspiration as of late — notably for the “Africa” themed spring ready-to-wear collection, which, while extremely beautiful, resulted in some less-than-considered cultural appropriation in terms of its hairstyling and ad campaign setting.

Tel Aviv is well developing a serious cycling culture

Author: Administrator

27/01/2016

sportsbikeWhen four Israeli cyclists suggested to the Tel Aviv city council in 1994 that it might be a clever idea to promote the bicycle as a new mode of transport, they were met with laughter.“They were told that cycling was something for third world nations,” says Yotam Avizohar, director of the Israel Bicycle Association. “The council official said: ‘Tel Aviv is a modern city. We only promote sophisticated transport solutions. Very soon we will have a light rail system.’”

The employers relaxation techniques can have unexpected effects

Author: Administrator

25/01/2016

relaxI am sitting in a circle in a grey, corporate room with 10 housing association employees – administrators, security guards, cleaners – eyes darting about nervously. We are asked to eat a sandwich in silence. To think about every taste and texture, every chewing motion and bite. Far from being relaxed, I feel excruciatingly uncomfortable and begin to wonder if my jaw is malfunctioning.

What are the alternatives?It’s time for gender-free pronouns

Author: Administrator

25/01/2016

couplesA teacher is a teacher, whether male or female, a novelist is a novelist, but a ballerina is distinguishable from a male dancer. And there is a tendency to call a person on the stage an actor not an actress, even if she is female; this is supposed to stop her being pushed into a lower category, to establish her equal excellence – but some of us would say it was an insult to Mrs Siddons and Greta Garbo, with its implication of male superiority.

Foods That Make You Look Younger-New life for old cuisines

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundYou can head off a lot of your most common beauty concerns simply by downing the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real get-gorg benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. "Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age," says Joshua Zeichner, MD. The smart approach, Dr. Zeichner says, is to create a plan that includes what he calls "the building blocks of healthy skin and hair"—nutrients, minerals and fatty acids—as well as antioxidants to protect your body from damaging environmental stresses. Get ready to nab some beauty-boosting perks by tossing these essential face-saving edibles into your grocery cart.What to eat to keep young and beautiful and among those products is Feta cheese is packed full of vitamin B12, which speeds up the replacement of dead skin cells. cfood1Central Asian restaurants have made a place for themselves in Beijing's Russian district, and diners are licking their lips, Erik Nilsson reports. Erik Nilsson The old Soviet Union is reuniting in Beijing - for dinner. At least its cuisine is. Central Asian fare has taken a central place at the table in the Yabaolu neighborhood's dining scene, as the city's "Russiatown" transforms into "Beijing-istan".Natives of the "stans" are making culinary inroads into China's capital as the New Silk Road Economic Belt develops, while fewer Russian traders are frequenting the declining Yabaolu fur market that spurred the original development of the surrounding Slavic enclave.This means compote, a juice of mixed fruits, is diluting volumes of vodka, as the tides of the boiled dried-fruit juice rise and the hard-drinking part of town dries up. (Actually, many of the area's Central Asian eateries are halal, but allow you to bring your own booze.) There's more yogurt and less mayonnaise. More kebabs and fewer cutlets. More plov (Central Asia's rice staple) and fewer potatoes.These eateries dot the Shenlu dining street behind the fur market, sprinkled among restaurants serving sustenance from China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Mongolia,Greece,Turkey and Italy.food7People will choose larger portions of food if they are labeled as being "healthier," even if they have the same number of calories, according to a new study."People think (healthier food) is lower in calories," said Pierre Chandon, a marketing professor at the INSEAD Social Science Research Center in France, and they "tend to consume more of it." That misconception can lead to people eating larger portion sizes of so-called healthy foods, and therefore more calories."Foods are marketed as being healthier for a reason, because food producers believe, and they correctly believe, that those labels will influence us to eat their products and perhaps eat more of their products,"
