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.

Chileans cast their ballot in decisive presidential runoff

Conservative former president Sebastián Piñera came first in last month’s first round with centre-left Alejandro Guillier coming second

On Sunday Chileans voted in a runoff presidential election that will determine if the world’s top copper producer stays on its center-left course or joins a tide of Latin American nations that have been turning to the right in recent years.

The choice was between billionaire and former president Sebastián Piñera, 68, a conservative who was considered the frontrunner but earned fewer votes than expected in last month’s first round, and center-left senator Alejandro Guillier, a 64-year-old former TV news anchor.

I was about to put quote marks round obscene, since that’s the judgment of assorted charities and politicians, but really it needs no attribution – it is objectively obscene.

Pentagon admits running secret UFO investigation for five years

Task force that investigated sightings of unidentified flying objects ran from 2007 to 2012 with annual budget of $22m

The truth is finally out there after the Pentagon admitted it ran a secret UFO investigation programme for five years until 2012.

The Department of Defense’s own “X-Files” operation, known by the less catchy title of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, was closed after a change in funding priorities, it said.
