  • [01] Orphan baby bears returned to wildlife

    --wo orphan baby bears that were rescued nine months ago by the Arcturos

    The two baby bears were found in mountainous areas of Argos Orestikon and Trikala, northwestern Greece, frightened and in bad shape. Today they weigh 50 kilos and have learned how to climb trees and search for food, avoid humans and live as wild animals.

    Arcturos had implemented a new adaptation programme which includes a special diet and the exclusion of human presence in order to safeguard the bears' smooth re-adaptation to wildlife.

    Little John and Nikitas were transferred and were settled into their new home, after being medicated. However, they will be closely watched, via satellite, from the transmitter-collars they wear. non-governmental conservation organisation of the Brown Bear, were returned to their natural environment and when they wake up from winter hibernation they will be free to adapt in the wildlife.

    [02] FinMin dismisses floated idea for special EU 'budget' commissioner

    AMNA / Government Vice President and Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos, replying to questions by reporters on the proposal for an appointment of a special commissioner to monitor implementation of the Greek budget, countered that "whoever poses a dilemma for a people between economic aid and national dignity is unaware of basic historical teachings."

    He spoke before leaving for Brussels on Sunday morning.

    "I am certain that the political leaderships of all European countries and particularly those who due to their size have, as a matter of fact, increased responsibility for the course of Europe, know the way issues are raised between friends and partners who have joined their historical destinies."
