Social Networks - Twitter Facebook Linkedin Instagram Foursquare Pinterest Tumblr Plurk - We suffer because Google and Amazon are in open Internet warfare

Wed, 6 Dec 2017 06:21:35 GMT

Knowing how addicted many of us are to Youtube and Amazon services and Netflix, you should know the battle of the Internet giants has begun and we, the consumers are caught in the middle.

On Dec 5 Google announced it will disconnect from January 1, 2018 all its YouTube videos from Amazon's Fire TV and Echo Show devices (unless some kind of agreement is reached beforehand - (unlikely?)).

So, #Google’s move is a salvo of retaliation for #Amazon's refusal to sell some Google products that compete with Amazon gadgets like Google's #Chromecaststreaming device, a competitor to Fire TV.
This is an all out tussle between two of the world's major technology companies out to dominate the market even further.  It is open Internet warfare.

And, we the consumers are caught in the tussle for Internet dominance by those companies that offer us popular services.

Health Matters in Crete  - News - Agios Nikolaos Hospital

Mon, 4 Dec 2017 07:26:26 GMT

Management announces that a regular pediatric-pulmonary clinic will be held every Monday at the Ayios Nikolaos Hospital (nozokomeio), by prior appointment.

The specialist clinic, as the title suggests is to bring special care for the young with lung and associated breathing problems.

There are so many uncertainties with public funding of hospitals across Greece that any new announcement, as with the pediatric-pulmonary clinic, are most welcome and appreciated by the residents in Lassithi Prefecture.

The foreign community organisation, INCO, is working closely with the Lassithi Public Hospital administration with providing volunteer work.

Important: The clinic is being held in the Dental Clinic
Telephone number: 2841343606, open from 12:00 to 14:00

The original, if you remember was directed by Sidney Lumet and starred Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall and Ingrid Bergman.  This remake is directed by Kenneth Branagh
who is also a lead, with Penélope Cruz and Willem Dafoe. Passable reviews by critics.

Expat Cafe - Greece :: Warning, General Strike Planned

Fri, 1 Dec 2017 04:29:54 GMT

Dec 14 is the date fixed for next mass disruption of services across the Country

Greece’s biggest labor unions have called a new general strike this month over bailout-linked austerity policies, as the government begins new talks with international creditors.

The Greek civil servants’ union called ADEDY, has garnered support across many private sector unions as well. Discontent continues in the labour force over the Athens Government's failure to compromise on the cuts in pensions and salaries.

Behind this intransigence is the pressure from the EU in Brussels to streamline and centralise pensions into a unified system. That is what will bring about more cuts in income benefits for employed Greeks.

The massive "TROIKA" (a dirty word in politics in Greece and to ordinary Greeks) bailout program ends in August 2018. This will be a critical date when Greece is supposed to break free from Brussels control and refinance its own borrowings by selling Greek government bonds.

The strike will go ahead unless the Athens Government relents on key points especially significant changes in Greece's energy sector. It was recent failure in talks on that sector that caused the latest trade union's anguish.
