I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Germany 'recession risk' as manufacturing hits seven-year low – business live

Drop in exports prompts factory contraction in Eurozone’s largest economy

The poor PMI data come ahead of the European Central Bank’s latest monetary policy announcement tomorrow. The upshot is that the case for easing policy has been bolstered, say economists.

Jack Allen-Reynolds, senior Europe economist at Capital Economics, said:

It will reaffirm policymakers’ desire for policy easing, and we think that they will begin by changing their forward guidance on interest rates and QE tomorrow.

[German PMIs] suggest that the economy was still weak at the start of the third quarter, following what is likely to have been stagnation or a small contraction in the second quarter.

The weakness of the manufacturing sector – and the mighty car industry – has pushed Germany’s composite PMI, including the services sector, to a four-month low of 51.4.

Weakness in the automotive sector was a major driver of the poor manufacturing performance. Manufacturing order books fell at the fastest rate since April amid reports of lower export sales to China in particular.

Confidence among manufacturers towards future output sank sharply in July, down to its lowest since late 2012 due in part to increased concerns towards the outlook for the car industry.

Zed by Joanna Kavenna review – a brilliant big-tech dystopia

This delirious satire about the corrosive effects of technology takes our hall-of-mirrors times very seriously indeed

Joanna Kavenna is a brilliantly unpredictable novelist: whatever you think she might do next, she doesn’t. After novels dealing with depression (Inglorious), with maternity (The Birth of Love), with quantum physics (A Field Guide to Reality), she turns her formidable talents to the most pressing topic of these days: our digitally enmeshed lives. In terms of its stylistic innovations, Zed is a tour de force.

We begin with Douglas Varley, an employee of a tech super-company called Beetle. The Beetle-band on his wrist wakes him, his Alexa-like “Very Intelligent Personal Assistant”, which he has named Scrace Dickens, informs him of an urgent situation that needs his attention, and a self-driving Beetle car called a Custodian is soon on its way.

North Sea jazz festival review – all tastes catered for as old meets new
From Anita Baker to Abdullah Ibrahim, legends stole the show at the world’s largest indoor jazz festival

Event promotion for Rotterdam’s North Sea jazz festival will tell you it is the largest indoor jazz festival in the world. Yet nothing prepares you for the exhibition centre-cum-international train station of the venue: a labyrinth of plush-carpeted corridors that, when used to wander to a gig at 11pm, are lit by the kind of golden aura that masks all traces of day or night.

This is the charm of the long-running festival: an impeccably organised safe haven of jazz and pop for all tastes, from legacy acts such as saxophonist Gary Bartz and pianist Abdullah Ibrahim to next-gen stars Robert Glasper and Makaya McCraven, with crowd-pleasers Anita Baker, Janelle Monáe and even Toto all thrown in for good measure.
