Greece has fallen three years in a row in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, from 31st in 2008 to 70th in 2010, level with its neighbour Bulgaria. The fall has been due to practices that are both surprising and unacceptable in a European Union member.The economic and financial crisis has contributed to this decline and has above all highlighted the weaknesses of Greece’s media and its almost mafia-like practices. Owned by a few big businessmen and shipping-line owners, most of the media companies are nowadays threatened with collapse, which would set of a wave of dismissals in a profession already suffering from poor pay and conditions.The blogosphere offers a freer space for expression and a temporary antidote to the self-censorship that is becoming more and more widespread in the traditional media. But the Internet does not offer an economically viable alternative that could help reverse the disastrous practices that have taken hold in the past two decades.Against the backdrop of street violence, a very deep crisis of confidence has developed between the media and public. Seen either as louts or well-off brats, journalists are often identified with the now despised political class. Many now fear physical violence and some use protection. The targets of smear campaigns that mix sarcastic slogans with death threats, journalists now think twice about going out on to the streets to report. Stelios Kouloglou, long the symbol of investigative journalism, is now the victim of a defamatory poster campaign. His crime? Laying off staff at his Web TV station because it ran into financial problems.Although less exposed than their Greek colleagues, foreign reporters based in Greece recognize that they face problems that are unusual in a European Union member. But they prefer to be discreet on the subject because, like their Greek colleagues, they fear the possibility of reprisals or violence.The impact of the crisis has radicalized a sector of the population, which expresses its anger and frustration in increasingly violent demonstrations. Photographers and cameramen are more and more at risk as they encounter situations akin to civil war in the course of trying to cover the activities of these grass-roots movements. Caught between the violence of the extremist movements and the violence of anti-riot police who show little respect for their professional status, photographers are paying a high price for the coverage they give us.No journalists were upbeat about the consequences of the austerity plans and cuts, but Reporters Without Borders found that most of the ones it interviewed regarded the economic crisis as a chance for the media to break with the patronage system that has prevailed since the 1980s.

(Messenger Staff Photo/Thomas Graning)The College Street Historical Neighborhood Association has plans that include bringing an old-fashioned Christmas to the streets that make up the city’s historic district – College, Murphree, Walnut, Pine and China.The College Street designation was chosen as the name of the association because College Street has been recognized by the state historical association as the historic area of the city.Ed Telfair, association vice president, said the home owners in the historic district would like to decorate for the holidays with some kind of ornamentation that would reflect the heritage of the district. That didn’t happen this year but Ed and Carla Telfair did host open house and said to their neighbors, “Y’all come.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

City Councilman Jason Reeves came and talked with us about the city’s long-term goal to tie the downtown area to the university campus.”Telfair said the city has inquired as to whether the residents of the historic district would be agreeable to a walking tour of the area.“We want to support the city’s revitalization effort and a walking tour be something that I think the association would support but improvements to the sidewalk would need to be made before we could open the district to visitors,” Telfair said.The purpose of the College Street Historical Neighborhood Association is to preserve the residential heritage of Troy and to make sure that the area remains a residential zone in the years to come. There are 110 homes in the five-street area and 18 of the houses are listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Historic Places.“There are other homes that qualify for listing on the Register but there’s paperwork that has to be done in order to apply,” Telfair said. “The paperwork requires photographs being taken and research being done but we expect several applications to be submitted and accepted soon.”The expanding number of homes listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Historic Places will be helpful in securing grants for improvements to the overall district.“We could qualify for grants for street and sidewalk improvements or maybe to install gas lamps along the streets,” Telfair said. “We would really like to see the utility lines run underground.

View post tag: Naval View post tag: americas Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Norfolk Back in Homeport USS Norfolk Back in Homeport Norfolk, under the command of Cmdr. Greg Zettler, returned from the Central Command area of responsibility where the crew executed the Chief of Naval Operation’s Maritime Strategy for supporting national security interests and Maritime Security Operations.“During the deployment we provided unmatched versatility to two different Combatant Commanders,” said Zettler. “Norfolk conducted operations in both the U.S. Fifth and Sixth Fleet areas of responsibility in support of theater and national level tasking. The crew performed admirably throughout the deployment, professionally and enthusiastically overcoming many challenges to accomplish a wide variety of submarine missions.”Norfolk left its homeport in February, and during the deployment steamed more than 30,000 nautical miles. Port visits were conducted in Lisbon, Portugal; Rota, Spain; Bahrain; and Jebel Ali, United Arab Emirates.Fast-attack submarines like Norfolk have multi-faceted missions. They use their stealth, persistence, agility and firepower to deploy and support special force operations, disrupt and destroy an adversary’s military and economic operations at sea, provide early strike from close proximity, and ensure undersea superiority.[mappress]Press Release, August 27, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: Navy View post tag: USS Norfolklast_img read more
