Minimum wage is not enough

For a family of two children and one or two parents, with only one minimum wage collected, the person with a job will need to work between 60 and 70 hours per week to make ends meet.

Cash-strapped Greece literally becoming a madhouse

Over one in ten people you come in contact with in Greece on a daily basis are likely to be suffering from some mental illness

Tell me about it... I'm sure Gus Portokalos would claim Greece invented the fruitcake.

Eat like the Greeks to keep your mind sharp

Researchers have found that the Mediterranean diet can protect against memory loss.

A study found people who eat a Mediterranean-style diet may be less likely to experience declines in their memory and thinking skills.

The diet consists of plant-based foods such as vegetables, legumes, fruit, nuts, seeds and olives, extra virgin olive oil, fish, with moderate red wine intake.

:unsure:  Have I posted this before? Sh*t, more red wine needed
