The European Union admits the failure of the Memoranda
 
01:27
During the debate on the specific measures taken for the grant of European funds to Greece taken place in the plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Golden Dawn MEP Lampros Fountoulis took the floor. He welcomed the European Union’s admission, even an indirect one, of the failure of the Memoranda. At the same time, he denounced the fact that from all these funds only a minimum amount resulted in the Greek economy. ‘’I will disregard everything previously said by the colleague. I should give to the author of this report credit for acknowledging the fact that the three Memoranda imposed on Greece by the lenders did not manage to tackle the invariably negative growth rates in the last few years. Commonly, the previous Greek governments and the current one along with the institutions spread the exact opposite news. On the other hand, statistics constitute the easier way to tell lies. The Eurostat statistics show that unemployment has dropped to around 20% in Greece. However, what they do not show is the fact that the new job vacancies are mainly part-time jobs and with much lower salaries than the ones existed before the economic crisis. Of course, it is unrealistic to expect acceleration in economic growth while the salaries have dropped to the current levels and, consequently, the purchasing power of the Greek people has reduced to zero. It is true that the funds granted for public investments in Greece have been substantial. Nevertheless, the largest part of these funds has not remained for usage inside the country; on the contrary, it has ended up in the big manufacturing companies, many of which are located in the so-called Big European Countries. It would have been much more beneficial for the Greek people, if the allocated funds had ended up in the real economy and assisted in the development of an economic environment that would be ideal for the economic growth.’’

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of United Kingdom
 
01:01
Thanks for watching.... 1. London 2. Manchester 3. Birmingham 4. Leeds 5. Glasgow 6. Liverpool 7. Southampton 8. Newcastle 9. Nottingham 10. Sheffield The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland , commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain, is a sovereign state in Europe. Lying off the north-western coast of the European mainland, the country includes the island of Great Britain—a term also applied loosely to refer to the whole country—the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state (the Republic of Ireland).[nb 5] Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to its west and north, the North Sea to its the east and the English Channel to its south. The Irish Sea lies between Great Britain and Ireland. The UK has an area of 93,800 square miles (243,000 km2), making it the 80th-largest sovereign state in the world and the 11th-largest in Europe. The United Kingdom is the 22nd-most populous country, with an estimated 64.1 million inhabitants. It is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of governance. Its capital city is London, an important global city and financial centre with the second-largest urban area in Europe, and its metropolitan area is the largest in European Union, with a population of about 14 million according Eurostat. The current monarch—since 6 February 1952—is Queen Elizabeth II. The UK consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The latter three have devolved administrations, each with varying powers, based in their capitals, Edinburgh, Cardiff, and Belfast, respectively. Guernsey, Jersey, and the Isle of Man are not part of the United Kingdom, being Crown dependencies with the British Government responsible for defence and international representation. The relationships among the countries of the United Kingdom have changed over time. Wales was annexed by the Kingdom of England under the Acts of Union of 1536 and 1543. A treaty between England and Scotland resulted in a unified Kingdom of Great Britain in 1707, which in 1801, merged with the Kingdom of Ireland to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1922, five-sixths of Ireland seceded from the country, leaving the present formulation of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The UK has fourteen Overseas Territories. These are the remnants of the British Empire which, at its height in the 1920s, encompassed almost a quarter of the world's land mass and was the largest empire in history. British influence can be observed in the language, culture, and legal systems of many of its former colonies. The United Kingdom is a developed country and has the world's sixth-largest economy by nominal GDP and tenth-largest by purchasing power parity. The country is considered to have a high-income economy and is categorised as very high in the Human Development Index, currently ranking 14th in the world. It was the world's first industrialised country and the world's foremost power during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The UK remains a great power with considerable economic, cultural, military, scientific, and political influence internationally. It is a recognised nuclear weapons state and its military expenditure ranks fifth or sixth in the world. The UK has been a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council since its first session in 1946. It has been a member state of the European Union (EU) and its predecessor, the European Economic Community (EEC), since 1973; it is also a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Council of Europe, the G7, the G8, the G20, NATO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Settlement by anatomically modern humans of what was to become the United Kingdom occurred in waves beginning by about 30,000 years ago. By the end of the region's prehistoric period, the population is thought to have belonged, in the main, to a culture termed Insular Celtic, comprising Brythonic Britain and Gaelic Ireland. The Roman conquest, beginning in 43 AD, and the 400-year rule of southern Britain, was followed by an invasion by Germanic Anglo-Saxon settlers, reducing the Brythonic area mainly to what was to become Wales and the historic Kingdom of Strathclyde. Most of the region settled by the Anglo-Saxons became unified as the Kingdom of England in the 10th century. Meanwhile, Gaelic-speakers in north west Britain (with connections to the north-east of Ireland and traditionally supposed to have migrated from there in the 5th century) united with the Picts to create the Kingdom of Scotland in the 9th century.

USD buyers waiting for US inflation data
 
02:38
Today, the competition between the eurozone and the United States will go beyond the financial arena where exchange rates drive the demand for currencies. Traders will hone in on inflation reports delivered by Eurostat and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. The upcoming data could hint at further steps of the European Central Bank and the US Federal Reserve. During early European session, statistics on consumer price index for the euro area countries were released. The preliminary estimate of CPI turned out to be wrong. Instead of a 0.1% fall predicted previously, prices stood flat in March in annual terms. On a monthly basis, consumer prices grew by 1.2%. Most analysts tracking macroeconomic information from the eurozone did not expect any changes in the flash reading. Such positive news should have boosted purchases of the single European currency, but market participants preferred not to hurry and wait for an inflation report from the US. The comment of A. Davydov: Consumer prices in Europe stopped declining. Still, it did not help the single European currency gain ground. Now the market is awaiting inflation data release in the US. If expectations regarding inflation growth rates come true, the greenback will continue its rise. Accelerating inflation in the US boosts chances of a soon funds rate hike, and traders will bet on it. By the end of the trading day the euro could tumble to as low as 1.1200 against the US dollar. End of comment Analysts expect a 0.2% growth in prices in March and acceleration of inflation to 1.1%. Still, the greenback’s advantage is trading sentiment, not confirmation of macroeconomic forecasts. Besides expectations for a rate increase by the Fed, mentioned by Davydov, the US dollar’s status of a reliable asset supports the currency. Amid mounting concerns over the global economic situation, investors protect themselves buying the greenback. https://www.instaforex.com/

A centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum, it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely due to the impact of its cultural and political achievements during the 5th and 4th centuries BC on the rest of the then known European continent.[8] Today a cosmopolitan metropolis, modern Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece. In 2012, Athens was ranked the world's 39th richest city by purchasing power and the 77th most expensive in a UBS study. Athens is recognised as a global city because of its geo-strategic location and its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, culture, education and tourism.

GNI, PPP by Country: 1990 - 2017
 
00:57
PPP GNI (formerly PPP GNP) is gross national income (GNI) converted to international dollars using purchasing power parity rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GNI as a U.S. dollar has in the United States. Gross national income is the sum of value added by all resident producers plus any product taxes (less subsidies) not included in the valuation of output plus net receipts of primary income (compensation of employees and property income) from abroad. Data are in current international dollars. For most economies PPP figures are extrapolated from the 2011 International Comparison Program (ICP) benchmark estimates or imputed using a statistical model based on the 2011 ICP. For 47 high- and upper middle-income economies conversion factors are provided by Eurostat and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Source: World Bank

~~~ International Comparison Program ~~~ Title: What is International Comparison Program?, Explain International Comparison Program Created on: 2018-09-21 Source Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Comparison_Program ------ Description: The International Comparison Program, is a partnership of various statistical administrations of up to 199 countries guided by the World Bank. The main partners of this program are the World Bank, IMF, UN, ADB, OECD, CISSTAT, Eurostat, AfDB ESCWA, ECLAC, DFID, ABS, IDB, NMoFA who are also all part of the executive board.The Program produces internationally comparable price and volume measures for gross domestic product . Its component expenditures are based on purchasing power parities . The International Comparison Program holds surveys collecting price and expenditure data for the entire range of final goods and services at intervals of some few years . The surveys cover GDPs of countries including their consumer goods, services, government services and capital goods. The ICP tries to make different countries GDPs comparable by calculating them in PPP both currency converters and spatial price deflators.The responsibility for the ICP within regions is shared between the national and regional agencies which represent various countries. National statistical offices carry out data collection but regional agencies provide guidance, collection, coordinating of data and data validation. Regional agencies also put together and finalize the regional comparisons.The ICP has published its PPP results eight times so far – the first time for 1970 and the latest for 2011. ------ To see your favorite topic here, fill out this request form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScU0dLbeWsc01IC0AaO8sgaSgxMFtvBL31c_pjnwEZUiq99Fw/viewform ------ Source: Wikipedia.org articles, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license.

Turin - Italy
 
02:42
Turin is a major city as well as a business and cultural centre in northern Italy, capital of the Piedmont region, located mainly on the left bank of the Po River surrounded by the Alpine arch. The population of the city proper is 909,193 (November 2008) while the population of the urban area is estimated by Eurostat to be 1.7 million inhabitants; the Turin metropolitan area is estimated by OECD to have a population of 2.2 million. Turin is a flourishing, industrious and cosmopolitan European city, which enjoys state-of-the-art technology and architectural developments. The city boasts a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries, restaurants, churches, palaces, operahouses, piazzas, parks, gardens, theatres, libraries, museums and other venues. Turin is well-known for its baroque, rococo and neo-classical architecture. Much of the city's public squares, castles, gardens and elegant palazzi (such as Palazzo Madama), were built by Sicilian architect Filippo Juvarra, who modeled these buildings on the Baroque and classical style of Versailles. Examples of these French-themed edifices include the Royal Palace of Turin, the Palazzina di caccia of Stupinigi and the Basilica di Superga. Turin is sometimes called the "cradle of Italian liberty", due to its having been the birthplace and home of notable politicians and people who contributed to the Risorgimento, such as Cavour. The city currently hosts some of Italy's best universities, colleges, academies, lycea and gymnasia, such as the Polytechnic University of Turin. Prestigious and important museums, such as the Museo Egizio[7] and the Mole Antonelliana are also found in the city. Turin's several monuments and sights make it one of the world's top 250 tourist destinations, and the tenth most visited city in Italy in 2008. Turin used to be a major European political centre, being Italy's first capital city in 1861 and being home to the House of Savoy, Italy's royal family. Even though much of its political significance and importance had been lost by World War II, it became a major European crossroad for industry, commerce and trade, and currently is one of Italy's main industrial centres, being part of the famous "industrial triangle", along with Milan and Genoa. Turin is ranked third, after Rome and Milan, for economic strength. With a GDP of $58 billion, Turin is the world's 78th richest city by purchasing power, and even though the city was unable to become a "world city", unlike Milan or Rome, it was ranked by GaWC as "economically efficient", along with Jerusalem, Genoa, Macau, Marseille, Liverpool, Strasbourg, Salt Lake City, Seville and Tijuana, to name a few.Turin is also home to much of the Italian automotive industry. Turin is well known as the home of the Shroud of Turin, the football teams Juventus F.C. and Torino F.C., the headquarters of automobile manufacturers Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, and as host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. Several International Space Station modules, such as Harmony and Columbus, were also manufactured in Turin. It was the capital of the Duchy of Savoy from 1563, then of the Kingdom of Sardinia ruled by the Royal House of Savoy and finally the first capital of a unified Italy. It is often referred to as "the Capital of the Alps". Turin is also known as "the Automobile Capital of Italy" or the Detroit of Italy; in Italy it is also called "[La] capitale Sabauda".

GDP, PPP by Country: 1990 -2017
 
00:57
PPP GDP is gross domestic product converted to international dollars using purchasing power parity rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP as the U.S. dollar has in the United States. GDP is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are in current international dollars. For most economies PPP figures are extrapolated from the 2011 International Comparison Program (ICP) benchmark estimates or imputed using a statistical model based on the 2011 ICP. For 47 high- and upper middle-income economies conversion factors are provided by Eurostat and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Source: World Bank

Now to foster economic growth you need to have resources and it is very difficult to find these resources because you are in this precarious situation of the financial system. So I think that the real economic and political problem is how you unlock the situation without generating a mass fleeing from the eurozone". 18. Various of Eurostat report, chart showing growing unemployment rate STORYLINE: Unemployment in the 17 countries that use the euro hit its highest level since the currency was introduced back in 1999, official figures showed Monday, adding to fears that the region is in recession. Italy has been among the most affected countries within the eurozone, hitting 9.3 percent in February, with a youth unemployment rate at an alarming 31.9 percent. Both public and private public companies have made large parts of their work force redundant, making use of redundancy payments to soften the effects of the layoffs. But many workers, especially those who feel they are too old for a new job and too young to retire, have decided to fight to stay employed. The sleeping car workers of the Wagon-Lits travel and rail company have occupied a 30 metre (98 foot) high pillar inside the Milan station. They believe that cuts and tax raises are one of the main factors depressing the economy and producing layoffs.

Poverty in Bulgaria
 
03:24
Sad but true. Bulgaria, one of the EU's newest members (joining in January 2007), has been through mammoth changes in the last few years. Many of the cities and resorts have been undergoing construction booms galore, tempting buyers from Western Europe with relatively cheap property. Bulgaria's beach and ski resorts are expanding quickly as a result. The main cities have shrugged off their weary Communist-era image and have become vibrant and attractive, with well-kept boulevards, varied shopping and lively nightlife. Spectacular mountains occupy half the country's territory and the swathe of golden beaches along the 370km- (232-mile-) long Black Sea bring in hordes of tourists from around the world. Visitors can stay in towns and villages that have aimed to preserve the authentic Bulgarian spirit and hospitality. Bulgaria is especially proud of its rich folklore traditions, and folk dances, music, national costumes and traditional rituals play an important part in the life of Bulgarians. Bulgaria has had a turbulent history and recently experienced radical political changes. Having been a satellite of the Soviet Union for nearly half a century, Bulgaria chose its first democratically-elected president, Zhelyu Zhelev, in 1990. A constitution was adopted in 1991, the political parties were restored, and privatisation and restitution of the land started. Such changes escalated in the run-up, and subsequent accession, to the European Union in 2007. ===================== Luxembourg is the richest country in the European Union and Ireland is second despite having much less gross domestic product per capita, while Bulgaria is the poorest, the EU statistics office said. According to Eurostat, in terms of purchasing power parity, GDP per citizen in Luxembourg last year was almost three times the EU average at 276 units. The statistics show Ireland had GDP per capita at 146 units, making it second richest in the 27-nation bloc. The Netherlands was third richest in the EU with 131 units and Austria was fourth with 128. Bulgaria, which joined the EU together with Romania last year, had the lowest GDP per capita at 38 units. EU hopeful Turkey had 42 units, Eurostat also said. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/Eurogipsy.PNG

TRIP TO ATHENS - GREECE
 
04:27
Athens (/ˈæθɨnz/;[1] Modern Greek: Αθήνα, Athína, IPA: [aˈθina], Katharevousa: Ἀθῆναι, Athine, Ancient Greek: Ἀθῆναι, Athēnai), is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica periphery and is one of the world's oldest cities, as its recorded history spans around 3,400 years. Classical Athens was a powerful city-state. A centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum,[2][3] it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy,[4][5] largely due to the impact of its cultural and political achievements during the 5th and 4th centuries BC on the rest of the then known European continent.[6] Today a cosmopolitan metropolis, modern Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece and it is rated as an Alpha world city.[7] In 2008, Athens was ranked the world's 32nd richest city by purchasing power[8] and the 25th most expensive[9] in a UBS study. The Greek capital has a population of 655,780[10] (796,442 back in 2004)[11] within its administrative limits[12] and a land area of 39 km2 (15 sq mi).[13] The urban area of Athens (Greater Athens and Greater Piraeus) extends beyond the administrative municipal city limits, with a population of 3,074,160 (in 2011),[14] over an area of 412 km2 (159 sq mi).[13] According to Eurostat, the Athens Larger Urban Zone (LUZ) is the 7th most populous LUZ in the European Union (the 4th most populous capital city of the EU) with a population of 4,013,368 (in 2004). The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by a number of ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon, widely considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains a vast variety of Roman and Byzantine monuments, as well as a smaller number of remaining Ottoman monuments projecting the city's long history across the centuries. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. Landmarks of the modern era, dating back to the establishment of Athens as the capital of the independent Greek state in 1833, include the Hellenic Parliament (19th century) and the Athens Trilogy consisting of the National Library of Greece, the Athens University and the Academy of Athens. Athens was the host city of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, and 108 years later it welcomed home the 2004 Summer Olympics.[15] Athens is home to the National Archeological Museum, featuring the world's largest collection of ancient Greek antiquities, as well as the new Acropolis Museum. The city of Athens contains a variety of different architectural styles, ranging from Greco-Roman, Neo-Classical, to modern. They are often to be found in the same areas, as Athens is not marked by a uniformity of architectural style. Many of the most prominent buildings of the city are either Greco-Roman or neo-classical in styling. Some of the neo-classical structures to be found are public buildings erected during the mid-19th century, under the guidance of Theophil Freiherr von Hansen and Ernst Ziller, and include the Athens Academy, Athens City Hall, Greek Parliament, Old Parliament (1875--1932) (Now the National Historical Museum),[50] University of Athens, and Zappeion Hall. Beginning in the 1930s, the International style and other architectural movements such as Bauhaus and Art Deco began to exert an influence on almost all Greek architects, and many buildings both public and private were constructed in accordance with these styles. Localities with a great number of such buildings include Kolonaki, and some areas of the centre of the city; neighbourhoods developed in this period include Kypseli. In the 1950s and 1960s during the vast extension and development of Athens, modern architecture played a very important role. The centre of Athens was largely rebuilt, leading to the demolition of a number of neoclassical buildings. The architects of this era employed materials such as glass, marble and aluminium, while some blended modern and classical elements. After World War II, internationally known architects to have designed and built in the city included Walter Gropius, with his design for the US Embassy, and, amongst others, Eero Saarinen, in his postwar design for the east terminal of the Ellinikon Airport. Notable Greek architects of the 1930s--1960s included Konstantinos Doxiadis, Dimitris Pikionis, Pericles A. Sakellarios, Aris Konstantinidis and others. Photos and video were taken with a Nikon COOLPIX P100, not the newer Nikon COOLPIX P500. But performance and features should be almost identical.

Naples - Napoli - Italy
 
02:30
Naples is a city in Italy; it is the capital of the region of Campania and of the province of Naples. The city is known for its rich history, art, culture, architecture, music and gastronomy, playing an important role in the country's history and beyond throughout much of its existence, which began more than 2,800 years ago. Naples is located halfway between two volcanic areas, the volcano Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields, sitting on the coast by the Gulf of Naples. Founded in the 8th century BC, as a Greek colony, under the name of Parthenope, and later Neápolis (New City), Naples is one of the oldest cities in the world, and it held an important role in Magna Graecia; while when the city became part of the Roman Republic in the central province of the Empire, was a major cultural center (Virgil is one of the symbol of the political and cultural freedom of Naples). The city has seen a multitude of civilizations come and go, each leaving their mark: now the historic city centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The historic city centre of Naples is the largest in Europe (1,700 hectares ). Naples was preeminently the capital city of a kingdom which bore its name from 1282 until 1816 in the form of the Kingdom of Naples, then in union with Sicily it was the capital of the Two Sicilies until the Italian unification. Naples has profoundly influenced many areas of Europe and beyond. The city proper has a population of around 1 million people: Naples is the most densely populated major city in Italy. The population of urban area is estimated by Eurostat to be 2.25 million, while the Naples metropolitan area, according to different sources, is the second after the Milan metropolitan area (with 4,434,136 inhabitants according to Svimez Data[8] or 4,996,084 according to Censis institute) or the third (3.1 million inhabitants according to OECD) most populated metropolitan area in Italy. Naples is ranked fourth in Italy, for economic strength, after Milan, Rome and Turin. Naples is a thriving and cosmopolitan metropolis, and is the world's 91st richest city by purchasing power, with a GDP of $43 billion, surpassing the economies of Budapest and Zürich. The port of Naples is also one of the most important in Europe. Even though the city has had a remarkable economic growth, and unemployment levels in Campania and the city have decreased since 1999, Naples is still characterized by political and economic corruption and a thriving black market empire. Italian mega-companies, such as MSC, are headquartered in the city. Since 1958, the city hosts the Center Rai of Naples (media), while in the Bagnoli district there is a big NATO base. The city hosts the SRM institution for economic research. In the Posillipo district there is Villa Rosebery, one of three official residence of the President of Italy. Naples is full member of Eurocities network of European cities. The city was selected to become the headquarters of the European institution Acp/Ue. Naples was the most bombed Italian city of World War II. In the twentieth century, first under Fascism and reconstruction following the Second World War built much of the periphery. In recent decades, Naples has adopted a business district (the Centro Direzionale) with skyscrapers and infrastructure such as the TGV in Rome or in a subway expansion: it will include half of the region. The metropolis will host the IAC 2012 and the Universal Forum of Cultures 2013. The city is also synonymous with pizza, which originated in the city in 1889. A strong part of Neapolitan culture which has had wide reaching effects is music, including the invention of the romantic guitar and the mandolin as well as strong contributions to opera and folk standards. There are popular characters and figures who have come to symbolise Naples; these include the patron saint of the city Januarius, Pulcinella, and the Sirens from the epic Greek poem the Odyssey.

Athens Ancient Greek: Ἀθῆναι, Athênai) is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years[4] and its earliest human presence starting somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium BCE.[5] Classical Athens was a powerful city-state that emerged in conjunction with the seagoing development of the port of Piraeus, which had been a distinct city prior to its 5th century BCE incorporation with Athens. A centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum,[6][7] it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy,[8][9] largely because of its cultural and political impact on the European continent, and in particular the Romans.[10] In modern times, Athens is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece. In 2012, Athens was ranked the world's 39th richest city by purchasing power[11] and the 67th most expensive[12] in a UBS study. Athens is a global city and one of the biggest economic centres in southeastern Europe. It has a large financial sector, and its port Piraeus is both the largest passenger port in Europe,[13][14][15][16] and the second largest in the world.[17] The Municipality of Athens (also City of Athens) had a population of 664,046 (in 2011)[2] within its administrative limits, and a land area of 38.96 km2 (15.04 sq mi).[18][19] The urban area of Athens (Greater Athens and Greater Piraeus) extends beyond its administrative municipal city limits, with a population of 3,090,508 (in 2011)[20] over an area of 412 km2 (159 sq mi).[19] According to Eurostat[21] in 2011, the functional urban area (FUA) of Athens was the 9th most populous FUA in the European Union (the 6th most populous capital city of the EU), with a population of 3.8 million people. Athens is also the southernmost capital on the European mainland. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon, considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains Roman and Byzantine monuments, as well as a smaller number of Ottoman monuments. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. Landmarks of the modern era, dating back to the establishment of Athens as the capital of the independent Greek state in 1834, include the Hellenic Parliament and the so-called "architectural trilogy of Athens", consisting of the National Library of Greece, the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Academy of Athens. Athens is also home to several museums and cultural institutions, such as the National Archeological Museum, featuring the world's largest collection of ancient Greek antiquities, the Acropolis Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art, the Benaki Museum and the Byzantine and Christian Museum. Athens was the host city of the first modern-day Olympic Games in 1896, and 108 years later it welcomed home the 2004 Summer Olympics.[22]
Speech by Gary Lewis- Human Development Report 2013 launching ceremony
 
18:32
TEHRAN-- United Nations Resident Coordinator, Gary Lewis said here on Tuesday 30 April that the Islamic Republic of Iran should be commended for its progress in human development when measured over the past three decades. Addressing a joint press conference with Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Ali Akbar Salehi, on the occasion of launching of UNDP 2013 Human Development Report (HDR), he added what the Report implies is that from a human development standpoint -- during the period 1980-2012 -- Iran policy interventions were both significant and appropriate to produce overall improvements in the human development index. Produced by UNDP, the 2013 HDR presents Human Development Index (HDI) values and ranks for 187 countries and UN-recognized territories, along with the Inequality-adjusted HDI for 132 countries, the Gender Inequality Index (GII) for 148 countries, and the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) for 104 countries. He told journalists at Iranian Centre for International Conferences (ICIC) that Iran achieved the second highest reduction in HDI shortfall among the developing countries during the twenty-two year period between 1990 and 2012 and only one country was able to do better: the Republic of Korea. UNDP reports that between 1980 and 2012, Iran recorded some notable achievements: life expectancy at birth increased by 22.1 years; the mean years of schooling and the expected years of schooling each increased by about 5.7 years; while Iran's Gross National Income (GNI) per capita in purchasing power parity terms increased by about 48 percent during the same period. "Our world -- and our region -- currently face many human development and humanitarian challenges," he said adding that these challenges need a response where the best knowledge is made available -- where the best practices are used -- and where countries cooperate across borders. Lewis emphasized that the UN in Iran can play a greater role to bring together the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries in order to collectively solve these problems which affect our region and our world. The UN's development work in Iran concentrates on: poverty reduction; health; Environmentally Sustainable Management; disaster risk reduction and management and drug prevention and control.

Eurozone getting ready for election in Germany (18.09.2017)
 
02:08
The euro-dollar pair keeps trading near the Friday levels. However, the pair struggles to hold its positions, but the single European currency is backed by the inflation data revealed today. According to the final report delivered by Eurostat, consumer prices in the eurozone rose by 1.5 percent year-over-year, which is the fastest increase in 4 months. In July, the consumer price index grew by 1.3 percent. The August result coincided with analysts’ expectations. On a monthly basis, prices edged up by 0.3 percent; while in July, consumer prices dropped by 0.5 percent. Excluding food and energy prices, the core consumer price index advanced by 1.2 percent in line with expectations. In annual terms, inflation accelerated to 1.2 percent in July. On a monthly basis, the core indicator grew by 0.3 percent after a 0.6 percent fall. Despite the encouraging statistics, traders do not hurry to purchase the single currency. The euro-dollar pair is trading at 1.1948 levels. The upcoming federal election in Germany, that will take place on September 24, is placing the euro under pressure. Experts suppose that Angela Merkel will be re-elected for one more term. Anyway, political uncertainty in the region affects the euro-dollar dynamics. Later in the week, more significant macroeconomic reports will be published in the euro area. However, with the German election in focus, investors will hardly make a hasty decision to buy the euro. https://www.instaforex.com

ECONOMIC CRISIS: companies shift MARKETING strategies, target POVERTY-STRICKEN Europeans
 
03:35
ECONOMIC CRISIS: companies shift MARKETING strategies, target POVERTY-STRICKEN Europeans Record high unemployment in the EU has forced some of the larger consumer goods companies to shift marketing strategies. They target poverty-stricken Europeans' demand for cheaper goods in the midst of an economic crisis. Unilever -- the third-largest consumer goods company in the world, which manufactures hundreds of brands like Aviance, Ben & Jerry's, Dove and Lipton -- will be doing just that. Jan Zijderveld, head of Unilever's European division, said in an interview with Financial Times Deutschland that "poverty is returning to Europe." He speculates that sales can be increased by providing smaller and cheaper branded products. With changing economic conditions, shopping habits change as well: "If a consumer in Spain only spends €17 when they go shopping, then I'm not going to be able to sell them washing powder for half of their budget," Zijderveld said. Unilever has already begun altering its branding to adapt to the challenge of low growth in the developed world. In Spain, it introduced Surf detergent in packages for only five washes; in Greece, it is marketing mashed potatoes in smaller packages for a lower price. It has also created lower-cost brands for products like tea and olive oil. The company previously implemented low-cost branding strategies in developing countries such as Indonesia, where it sells individual packets of shampoo for a few cents each. But Zijderveld says that they have forgotten similar types of selling options in Europe because they were not used in the years prior to the economic crisis. Univeler's quarterly results last month bemoaned "sluggish growth" and "fragile consumer confidence" in developed countries. Zijderveld believes that lower-cost brands must be matched with Apple-like service in order to increase profits. "In an Apple store, everyone thinks: Wow, what an experience. ... Why can't we sell food like Apple sells devices? Why are there no genius consultants for chicken?" Record unemployment since adoption of Euro Univeler's move to adapt strategies for underdeveloped countries to EU markets is grounded in Europe's grim new reality. Unemployment is on the rise in the EU as consumer purchasing power declines -- the Eurozone's unemployment rate hit a record high this summer. The EU's ministry for statistics, Eurostat, reported that 17.8 million people were out of work in the Eurozone in June: The highest level since the Euro was adopted as the EU's currency in 1999. And according to new French Labor Ministry figures released on Monday, more than three million people were unemployed in the country in July, the highest levels in more than 13 years. Spain's unemployment rate reached a record high of nearly 25 percent in the second quarter of 2012. Greece's trails close behind, with a 23 percent unemployment rate reported in May. This data "bodes ill for consumer spending and growth prospects," chief European economist at IHS Global Insight Howard Archer told CBC. A downward trend in consumer spending has been observed since the middle of 2011, VisaEurope reported. Underlining this economic misery is an ongoing program of budget cuts and austerity, which EU nations are adopting in an attempt to pay down their debts. Eurozone citizens have witnessed cuts in salaries, healthcare systems, state financial support and public spending, which has led to an overall decrease in their discretionary income. The cuts are proving deeply unpopular all over the EU, leading to mass protests, violence and strikes. The more unpopular austerity measures in Greece included a new property tax and the suspension of 30,000 civil servants on partial pay. In Spain, thousands of people regularly protest in the streets against austerity, with young people encamping in tent cities and general strikes being held against planned budget cuts.

QtDD13 - Sami Makkonen - Data Visualization in 3D
 
11:50
Lightning talk from Qt Developer Days 2013 in Berlin At Digia we have been thinking about the evolution of data centric user interfaces and how to utilize the power of Qt 5 and 3D technologies. In this talk we present the current state of the 3D data visualization library we have been developing. One thing we noticed when we started the development was that 3D has been used in data visualization for some time now but it is quite seldom truly utilized. Most common use case is to draw 3D like bar charts in order to increase the visual look & feel of the data presentation. However in many cases the 3D presentation does not bring any real value and in several cases it actually makes it harder to read the data. Combining user interaction and real time 3D drawing enables us to create user interfaces that are efficient in UI space consumption and by introducing different kind of mechanisms for fluently changing between 3D and 2D presentation we can truly utilize the value of 3D in visualizing data. Presenter Bio: Sami is working at Digia, Qt R&D as Senior Manager and his focus is in Qt Developer Experience related matters e.g. Qt documentation. Sami has been also leading the development of Qt Enterprise Charts library. Sami holds an M.Sc.(Econ.) degree in Computer Science from the University of Jyväskylä. Sami has been working in Digia for 16 years in different roles from development to program and product management.

The word acropolis comes from the Greek words ἄκρον (akron, "edge, extremity") and πόλις (polis, "city"). Although there are many other acropoleis in Greece, the significance of the Acropolis of Athens is such that it is commonly known as "The Acropolis" without qualification.
