  • [01] Greek embassy in Beijing cultural review focuses shadow theatre

    BEIJING (ANA-MPA) -- The press & communication office of the Greek embassy in the Chinese capital will circulate the fifth edition of its quarterly cultural review "epiKoInoNiA" this week, a bilingual publication in English and Chinese.

    "Epikoinonia" is Greek for "communication", with the capital letters "K", "I", "N" and "A", ergo "KINA", meaning China in Greek.

    This quarter's edition will focus on shadow theatre medium in Greece, particularly the "Karagiozis" theme.

    The initiative is designed, composed and published exclusively by the press & communication office in Beijing.

    [02] Facebook leads to firing

    (ANA-MPA) -- A First Instance Court in Athens on Monday ruled in favour of an airline company that had fired an employee for "surfing" the social networking site Facebook and other websites while at work.

    The court ruled that the company was justified to end the work contract with a female employee without severance pay on the justification that she was visiting internet websites, including the best-known social networking sites, for hours at a time and on a daily basis. (ANA-MPA)
