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.

Extreme heatwave: 45C across South Australia as Tasmanian bushfires rage – live

With high temperatures also forecast for Victoria and NSW, there are warnings about potential power outages and blackouts, as well as total fire bans amid worsening weather. Follow developments live

More than 100 more feral animals could be culled in central Australia because they are dying from thirst in the prolonged extreme heatwave.

The Central Land Council is consulting a second remote community about carrying out an emergency cull of 120 horses, goats and donkeys because the animals are in such poor health they cannot be mustered or transported.

The temperature in Port Augusta has reached at least 46C, according to Weatherzone. A clock in town says the mercury might be at 48C, just shy of the record 48.9C. Already, last night, the town broke its January overnight record, with the mercury only dropping to 33.2C.

Even in an air-conditioned home, it was stinking hot, according to the mayor, Brett Benbow.

Venezuela: Trump recognises opposition leader as president
  • Juan Guaidó also recognised by Canada, Brazil and Argentina
  • Defiant Maduro urges supporters to ‘resist at all costs’

Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaidó has declared himself the interim president, in a dramatic escalation of efforts to force out Nicolás Maduro, who has overseen the country’s slide into authoritarianism and economic ruin.

Guaidó was quickly recognised by the US, Canada, European Union, Brazil, Colombia and other US allies in the Americas. Donald Trump warned that “all options are on the table” if Maduro responded with force against the opposition, but US officials made clear that the White House was focused on economic measures and would look at ways to transfer Venezuelan assets and oil revenues to Guaidó and the opposition-run national assembly.

US releases American journalist working for Iranian state TV after uproar

Marzieh Hashemi was held for 10 days as witness in unspecified criminal case, sparking anger in US and Iran

An American newscaster for the Iranian government’s Press TV was released late Wednesday after her 10-day long detention in federal custody provoked outrage in the US and Iran.

FBI agents arrested Marzieh Hashemi, a US citizen, at St Louis airport on 13 January. She was held as a material witness in an unspecified criminal proceeding, according to documents unsealed by the Department of Justice on Friday. Her detention prompted concerns about the potential first amendment issues of detaining a journalist, as well as religious liberty issues as Hashemi, a practicing Muslim, was reportedly denied Halal food and had her hijab forcibly removed.

Pharma firms to be incentivised to develop new superbug drugs

Health secretary Matt Hancock set to announce plans at World Economic Forum in Davos

The government is set to incentivise pharmaceutical companies to develop “urgently needed” drugs to fight antimicrobial resistant (AMR) superbugs, with the health secretary set to warn “we are on the cusp of a world where a simple graze could be deadly”.

Under the plans, the inappropriate use of antibiotics would also be cut by 15%, reducing resistant infections and potentially saving thousands of lives in the UK.
