Apparently the recent environmental act which abolished the waste management structure on Kefalonia and replaces it with a multi-island management structure allows for the transfer of waste from one island to another. The concern is that waste from the busier islands of Zakynthos and Corfu, where waste disposal problems exist, might end up on Kefalonia.

Puberty can be a ruff time for dogs too – study

Humans are not alone in going through the emotional rollercoaster of puberty.

UK scientists have found dogs endure a similar phase during adolescence at around eight months of age.

They warn that puberty can be a vulnerable time for dogs, especially if they are rehomed at this age.

Study leader Dr Lucy Asher, a senior lecturer in precision animal science at Newcastle University’s School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, said: “This is a very important time in a dog’s life."

While similar findings have been observed in cows, the researchers said the study is the first to find evidence of “typical teenage behaviour” in dogs.

Up to 8,000 jobs at risk as travel firm Tui faces 'greatest crisis'

A number of other travel companies and airlines have been hit by the pandemic. Earlier this week, Heathrow airport said it saw just 206,000 travellers last month, which is "the same number it would typically serve in just one day".

Coastal towns tell visitors to stay away as lockdown eases in England
Blackpool and other popular seaside resorts sound Covid-19 warning to protect residents

Britain’s coastal resorts have told visitors to stay away amid concerns that people may be drawn to the seaside as the weather improves and the lockdown is eased in England.

The tourism body for Blackpool has rebranded as Do Not Visit Blackpool in an attempt to discourage visitors after new guidance came into force on Wednesday allowing people in England to “travel to open space, irrespective of distance”.

Simon Blackburn, the leader of Blackpool council, said the UK government’s new message meant there was “nothing we can do” to stop visitors but he urged people to stay away.

Next Monday German flag-carrier Lufthansa will resume its flights to and from Greece, linking Athens first with Frankfurt and then with Munich. Next month Lufthansa will also start flying to Crete.

From July, low-cost Hungarian airline Wizz Air intends to resume its services to Greece, namely to Zakynthos, Iraklio, Corfu and Rhodes, having announced it will render the use of face masks for passengers and gloves for crew members mandatory; these are measures expected to be enforced by the vast majority of air carriers.
