  • [01] Greek archaeological finds among 10 most important in 2010

    ANA-MPaThe latest archaeological findings unearthed in Greece over the past year are in the top 10 discoveries of 2010 list, published in the latest issue of Archaeology Magazine, a publication of the Archaeological Institute of America.

    Ána-mpa/The findings in question are Palaeolithic tools discovered in Plakias (Rethymno prefecture) on the large south Aegean island of Crete.

    According to the magazine, "the discovery of stone tools at two sites on the island of Crete that are between 130,000 and 700,000 years old was announced by a research team led by Thomas Strasser of Providence College and Eleni Panagopoulou of the Greek ministry of culture. The tools resemble those made by Homo heidelbergensis and Homo erectus, showing that one of these early human ancestors boated across at least 40 miles of open sea to reach the island, the earliest indirect evidence of seafaring. ana-mpa

    "If hominins could move around the Mediterranean before 130,000 years ago, they could cross other bodies of water as well," said team member Curtis Runnels of Boston University, who helped analyse the tools."

    [02] Social sensitivity work stoppage

    Metro, electric railway and tram drivers have called a work stoppage from the beginning of their shift until 8 in the morning on Wednesday December 29 during which, however, trains will be operating as normal.

    The reason for this move is because they agreed that the money that their companies would be deducting from their salary, due to the work stoppage, will be returned to them and they will then provide it for "our afflicted and suffering fellow citizens", as they noted in a relevant announcement.

    More specifically, they will support the effort concerning the providing of meals that is being organised at the initiative of the Athens Archdiocese (Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos) in cooperation with the municipality of Athens.

    However, bus drivers and staff are planning work stoppages on Wednesday, from the start of their shift until 8:00 a.m. and from 10:00 p.m. until the end of the shift. This means buses will be running between 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. on that day.

    Similar work stoppages held at different hours are also planned after the New Year, on January 3, 5 and 10.

    [03] DEPA on debt allegations

    Greece's Public Gas Corporation S.A. (DEPA) is studying the request made by the Turkish BOTAS company for a backdated readjustment of the natural gas price, was announced on Monday.

    A DEPA statement clarified that the company "has not requested any economic facilitations" rejecting such allegations and underlined that Greece has no outstanding debts owed to Turkey that stem from natural gas trade transactions.

    The negotiations between DEPA and BOTAS on the price of the natural gas that comes from the Sach Deniz I field in Azerbaijan are in progress in an atmosphere of mutual cooperation, the statement underlined.
