  • [01] Athens municipal health centres begin H1N1 vaccinations

    Health professionals were the first to undergo vaccination on Monday against the new flu virus at seven city of Athens municipal health clinics, within the framework of a national action plan to counter any major outbreak of the A/H1N1 flu virus in Greece.

    Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis symbolically gave the first vaccinations at the city's 1st municipal clinic (78, Solonos St.), in his capacity as a physician, by vaccinating another doctor and an individual who belongs to an at-risk group.

    [02] Fox film studio head Gianopulos in Athens

    (ANA-MPA) -- "If we can create talent, we can create the best movies as well," Fox Filmed Entertainment co-chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos stated Monday in a press conference in Athens.

    He pointed out that Greece can develop a more robust film industry by releasing quality pictures with a strong Greek identity that can become box office hits both in the domestic and international markets.

    He also underlined that it is difficult for American films to be shot entirely in Greece and the European Union, in general, because of the high production costs.

    Later in the evening, Gianopulos will give a lecture at Athens' Megaron Hall on the subject of "Hellenism and Hollywood: From Aristotle to Alexander (Payne)", while on Tuesday morning he will participate in a roundtable discussion at the Greek Film Archive Foundation.

    Gianopulos, a Greek-American, attended a roundtable discussion at Thessaloniki's John Cassavetes Theater on Sunday, held within the framework of the city's 50th International Film Festival (TIFF).

    His visit to Thessaloniki and Athens comes within the framework of the Fulbright Program "Great Ideas" incentive, underway in cooperation with the US embassy and with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

    [03] PM invites Albanian, fYRoM PMs

    Prime Minister George Papandreou has invited the prime ministers of neighbouring Albania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM), Sali Berisha and and Nikola Gruevski, respectively, to take part in an informal meeting in the Prespes Lakes region of northwestern Greece on Friday.

    The meeting will discuss the possibility of cooperation for the protection and viable development of the Prespes national park region, which straddles the borders of all three countries.
