Tails from Greece Animal Rescue Organization

KAZSHELTER in Greece has made an announcement 
 During the last 2 weeks the range of dogs’ abandonment outside and around the Shelter was beyond management….5 adult dogs, 10 puppies who got sick from Parvo virus, resulting to incidents of virus within the shelter, and we had announced that we are not able to handle any case for a reasonable period of at least one month. 

Despite the above, on Saturday 9/5/2015 they have abandoned 8 more puppies, on Tuesday 12/5/2015, 2 more puppies and today 14/5/2015 3 more dogs, who were set free…. 

They are not discouraged by the Parvo virus…
They are not discouraged by the fact that we don’t have any help…
Neither by the fact that we are not a whole unit of volunteers…
We cannot say much, as our heart breaks.

From today and until further notice, the Shelter IS CLOSING
And for those who wish to disregard our scream of desperation may we repeat that
THE SHELTER IS CLOSING for all incidents, until further notice.
We, the volunteers, are continuing and will always continue to struggle for the prosperity of those souls who are sheltered and have earned a second chance to a better life.

We will continue to thank and be grateful to those who understand what means to have an entire Shelter on your shoulders, and give us the strength and support to fall but rise again

Being Assaulted by Bill Cosby


In Cosby’s deposition for the Constand case, revealed to the public just last week, the comedian admitted pursuing sex with young women with the aid of Quaaludes, which can render a person functionally immobile. “I used them,” he said, “the same as a person would say, ‘Have a drink.’ ” He asked a modeling agent to connect him with young women who were new in town and “financially not doing well.” In the deposition, Cosby seemed confident that his behavior did not constitute rape; he apparently saw little difference between buying someone dinner in pursuit of sex and drugging them to reach the same goal. As for consent, he said, “I think that I’m a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things.” If these women agreed to meet up, his deposition suggested, he felt that he had a right to them. And part of what took the accusations against Cosby so long to surface is that this belief extended to many of the women themselves (as well as the staff and lawyers and friends and others who helped keep the incidents secret).

Eurozone leaders have reached a "unanimous" aGreekment over a third Greek bailout

Eurozone leaders have reached a "unanimous" agreement over a third Greek bailout after marathon talks.
EU chairman Donald Tusk said leaders agreed "in principle" on negotiations for the bailout, "which in other words means continued support for Greece".
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said that after a "tough battle", Greece had secured a "growth package" of €35bn (£25bn), and won debt restructuring.
Greece will now have to pass reforms demanded by the eurozone by Wednesday.
We've already reported that many Greeks are unhappy with this deal. Now, the cracks may be beginning to show in Alexis Tsipras' own Syriza party. Don't forget, he still has to pass the reforms in the Greek parliament to make the deal happen.
Syriza's UK spokesperson, London based academic Marina Prentoulis has given this reaction to the deal: "We have ten thousand people committing suicide for economic problems; we have 60% of the young people unemployed, 27% of the overall population unemployed, the debt growing and the Greek economy being reduced by one fourth.
"Now, with these measures, I'm really worried what will happen. It has been clear that for political reasons they have been pressured into a very difficult deal and across Europe, what everybody says is that we're talking about a coup."

#This is A Coup

The rejection of the European bailout terms in the referendum this month is only the latest example of the Greek people sticking a finger in the eye of Europe even if it means suffering financial calamity. The same thing happened 95 years ago in a referendum that ultimately triggered one of the most consequential events in modern Greek history, a decision that continues to reverberate to this day.  Then, as now, Greek voters surprised Europe with a display of national pride and pique, and defiantly suffered the consequences. The country has never fully recovered.

#ThisIsACoup Trending Globally on Twitter as Hundreds of Thousands Take to Twitter to Urge Alexis Tsipras to Leave EU Summit

“ThisIsACoup is a hashtag started by Twitter users online, claiming that Europe’s ultimate goal in Greece is regime change and the pressure Europeans were exerting on Tsipras was meant to topple his government. Already, our Twitter counter has counted more than 200,000 Tweets globally with the hashtag.

Greeks speak out for Greece !!

As I celebrate the two Countries I love Canada and America this week, it saddens me to see the State of my Ancestral home in Ruins, no pun intended, this is the reason my Father left Greece in 1949 after the Civil War and now as this economic war takes place they truly do not understand what the Greeks are about, we are not perfect but look at the World today, who is? Yes the Greeks are Non-Conformists and they historically tell a Country to go Fuck themselves, as the Germans found out when they tried to take over Crete and they got slaughtered by the Women and Children, yes the Greeks paid the price but never surrendered to the Nazis even when they occupied Greece, The demise of WW2 and the Nazis was attributed to the bravery of the Greeks, ask Churchill,Roosevelt and Stalin they will tell you the same.I will say this, they are going through a hard time and I feel for the people there but Greece will prosper again, its in our DNA, If 300 men from Sparta can fight of an Army, 11 Million Greeks in Greece and the rest of us in the Diaspora stand by our people proudly, stop bashing the Greeks and lets start supporting them! ZHTO ELLAS!!!!! 


Και η Γλυκερία έστειλε το δικό της μήνυμα μέσω των social media για το δημοψήφισμα της Κυριακής:
“Ψηφίζω ΟΧΙ αυτή την Κυριακή
Για ενα καλύτερο αύριο στην Ελλαδα,στην Ευρώπη,σε όλο τον κόσμο
Εκατομμύρια άνθρωποι στον πλανήτη πεθαίνουν απο την πείνα ενώ η ΓΗ μπορεί να θρέψει υπέρ πενταπλάσιο αριθμό.
Τα συστήματα που εφαρμόζονται και μας επιβλήθηκαν μάλλον εσκεμμένα ειναι λάθος,εξυπηρετούν λίγους,και δείχνουν να καταρρέουν.
Η Ελλάδα,το λίκνο της ΔΗΜΟΚΡΑΤΙΑΣ και του ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟΥ οφείλει να ειναι πρωτοπόρος στις αλλαγές που ούτως ή άλλως θα συμβούν.
Τα τέρατα της υφαρπαγής ακόμα και της συνείδησής μας βρυχώνται δυνατά μήπως και τρομάξουμε
Όμως εμείς θα σταθούμε όρθιοι με καθαρό μυαλό,γεμάτη αισθήματα καρδιά,και πίστη στον άνθρωπο.
ΥΓ. Αγάπη σε όλους,και του ΟΧΙ και του ΝΑΙ
Επαναλαμβάνω,εγω /// ΟΧΙ ///
Despina Vandi - Δε χρειάζεται να μείνουμε με “μια ελιά, ενα αμπέλι και ενα καράβι” για να ξαναφτιάξουμε αυτόν τον τόπο απο την αρχή.
Για να αλλάξει ο κόσμος γύρω μας πρέπει πρώτα να αλλάξουμε εμείς”

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light - Aristotle

Είσαι το πρόβλημα και η λύση και το μαχαίρι και η πληγή

Θες έναν κόσμο πιο μεγάλο

Θες έναν κόσμο πιο μεγάλο, 
Και μες στο φόβο κλείνεσαι.
Λες δε θα πολεμήσεις άλλο, 
σαν φύλλο στο ποτάμι αφήνεσαι.

Έσβησες όλα σου τα φώτα
νομίζεις πως δε θα σε βρουν.
Μα όλα τα “τότε” και τα “πρώτα”
όπου κρυφτείς εκεί θα 'ρθουν.

Όλος ο κόσμος να γυρίσει, 
δεν έχεις άλλη επιλογή.
Είσαι το πρόβλημα και η λύση
και το μαχαίρι και η πληγή.

Είπες πολλά κι ένιωσες λίγα, 
πίστεψες λέξεις κι εποχές.
Τώρα απλά γυρνάς σελίδα, 
δε θα ξεμπλέξεις με ευχές.

Τώρα κατέβασες τα χέρια, 
άλλοι το μέλλον αναγγέλλουν
Λες “δε θα πάμε και στ' αστέρια 
ας γίνουν όλα όπως θέλουν”

The Salvation of Greece, different opinions

Was Greek Almost the Official Language of the United States?

John Adams would often use Greek words in his letters to Thomas Jefferson, who admired many aspects of the Ancient Greeks. He could read and speak the language fluently.
When Alexander Hamilton entered King’s College (now Columbia University) in 1773, he was expected to already have a mastery of Greek and Latin grammar, be able to read three orations from Cicero and Virgil’s Aeneid in the original Latin, and be able to translate the first ten chapters of the Gospel of John from Greek into Latin.
When James Madison applied at the College of New Jersey (now Princeton), he was expected to be able to “write Latin prose, translate Virgil, Cicero, and the Greek gospels and [to have]a commensurate knowledge of Latin and Greek grammar.” Even before he entered, however, he had already read Vergil, Horace, Justinian, Nepos, Caesar, Tacitus, Lucretius, Eutropius, Phaedrus, Herodotus, Thucydides, and Plato.
The study of Latin and Greek, which is what the term “classical education” originally implied, was not something the American Founding Fathers learned in college, but something they were expected to know before they got there.
The founders knew these writers and quoted them prolifically. Their letters, in particular, display a wide familiarity with classical authors. The correspondence between educated men of the time was commonly sprinkled with classical quotations, usually in the original Latin or Greek. It was not only prevalent, but apparently sometimes annoying to the recipient. Jefferson used so many Greek quotes in his letters to Adams (who liked Latin better than Greek) that, on one occasion, Adams complained to him about it.

You can't take the Spirit out of a Greek............he will carry on

Greece is bleeding and my heart is breaking
