IONIAN Undersea Cable to Improve Phone Connectivity in Greece

Although the internet is often referred to as “a cloud” somewhere above the globe, most of it functions transport information from cables lying deep in the world’s seas.

Towards the end of the article there's some interesting (IMO) information on deep sea cables in general.

Spain, Italy, Greece and France won’t make green list in next update

It is looking increasingly unlikely that tourism favourites Spain, Greece, Italy and France will make the UK’s travel “green list” in the next update, despite the justice secretary’s claim that the government is “very keen to see as many countries as possible” make the list.

Migrating Birds That Travel 4,000 Miles to Greece are Threatened by Extinction

The Asproparis, a bird migrating almost 4,000 miles from Africa to Greece, is threatened with extinction.

The white vulture’s arrival heralds the end of winter and the arrival of spring in the Greek region of Epirus. But the perilous journey along the Mediterranean and through several countries — as well as the poisoned bait it ingests — threaten to finish off the species.

In Greece today, only five pairs remain, a decline from 15 pairs recorded in 2012, and 70 pairs recorded in 2000.
