  • [01] Digital Marriage

    28 Feb 2005 12:20:00

    By Mary Lou Tzempelikou

    It is very often that desperate wives resort to their lawyers asking for a divorce because their husbands won't get away from the computer, passing endless hours surfing the net. A Chinese woman, however, has sued her husband for bigamy after he married another woman on the Internet! It all began just like in any other typical Internet story; Lin, from Harbin city, Heilongjiang province, noticed that her husband, Zhang, was spending an increased amount of time in front of his computer. After becoming suspicious, she discovered that he had "married" another woman on the Internet and even had a virtual child! The funny thing is that Lin was granted a divorce, but the judge turned down her plea for emotional damage, since the marriage was not legal!

    [02] No End to Attacks Suicide Bombing in Baghdad

    A booby-trapped car exploded in the central Iraqi town of Hilla, south of Baghdad, resulting in the death of a hundred and five people and the injury of another 133, according to the head of a local hospital. The blast occurred while a queue of people had gathered at a medical centre to receive medical certificates required for state jobs. According to Iraqi officials, the death toll has been burdened because of a market near the area of the explosion.

    [03] Over and Done With in Ten Minutes

    27 Feb 2005 21:08:00

    By Dimitris Alexopoulos

    Aris coach Giorgos Chatzaras had said within the week that the one desiring victory the most will claim it. If things are indeed as thus, then the one wanting three points the most were PAOK, who claimed victory in the derby of Thessaloniki by surprising Aris from the first ten minutes with two goals and a third later on to seal their domination. In the damned "Kleanthis Vikelidis," where Aris have only tasted victory twice, have had five draws and four defeats, they only thing they managed to do was reduce the score in the rerun to 1-3. Now, they are 13th in the standings with 19 points, next to Ergotelis, and they really have to fight hard to stay in A Division.

    Summary Procedures

    After having received two goals in ten seconds then there's not much you can expect next. PAOK unleashed their fury over Aris and opened the score in the 5' when Mieciel entered the penalty area, performed a side attack and Lymberopoulos failed to hold on to the ball.

    Six minutes later, in the 11' unmarked Salpiggidis passed the ball to Maladenis who sent the ball into the nets with a projection.

    And as if that wasn't enough, Aris were forced to play with ten players from the 28', as Sanjurjo hit Megahead right in front of referee Vassaras and was sent off immediately.

    With numerical superiority, PAOK did not have a hard time scoring their third goal in the 37', after Mieciel's amazing attempt, who first sent the ball on the post with a crashing shot and then right into the heart of Lymberopoulos' nets.

    Aris' fans reacted immediately to their team's loss and after the third goal they started evacuating the stadium.

    In the rerun and despite Giorgos Chatzaras' moves, nothing changed except for Aris' goal in the 63' with Ekwueme. For the rest of the match the pace slowed down but PAOK found it really easy to hold on to the three points of victory, despite missing out on a scoring chance in the 88' when Tohouroglou cleared Nebegleras' kick.

    Referee: Vassaras (Thessaloniki)

    Yellow Cards: Nebegleras, Maladenis, Megahead, Karadimos, Naidos, Andralas, Koltsidas

    PAOK: Tohouroglou, Egomitis, Karadimos, Chasiotis, Udeze, Zografakis, Megahead, Spasic (69' Zisopoulos), Maladenis (61' Andralas), Mieciel, Salpiggidis (84' Giasemi).
