Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.9148 GBP
1 €UR = $1.0871 USD
£1 GBP = 1.0931 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9199 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Can Australia curb its killer cats?

Eight-year-old ginger cat Juniper might look cute and fluffy, but appearances can be deceptive.

Australia has a cat problem. Its population of just over eight million feral and domestic cats are thought to kill billions of native creatures each year, many endangered.

A typical domestic cat like Juniper in New South Wales will kill more than 180 native creatures every year, suggests data from Threatened Species Recovery Hub.

And her feral feline cousins, whose population fluctuates between two and six million, are even more voracious, each killing about 790 wild animals per year.

Dog put to sleep after being abandoned in ‘worst condition’ RSPCA officer had ever seen
Rescue charity appealing for information after German Shepherd discovered in ‘atrocious state’

A severely neglected dog has been put to sleep after being found abandoned in “the worst condition” an RSPCA rescue officer has ever seen in Birmingham.

The German Shepherd was unable to stand and screaming in agony when he was discovered on Sunday, with a large testicular tumour and the skin torn from the underlying tissue in his face.

The dog had been left on top of a pink blanket in a bush.
