In an economic research note of January 28, the American investment bank J.P. Morgan sees a significant chance (70%) of elections in Greece before the end of the 1st trimester of 2015. Its basic case is that the elections would be held during the 3rd trimester or the early 4th in 2014.

J.P. Morgan also considers that none of the Greek parties would be able to form a government alone so a new coalition between SYRIZA and New Democracy should be considered.

FAGE has won the final court battle in Britain against Turkish dairy firm Chobani over the use of the words «Greek yogurt».

The Court of Appeal of England and Wales rejected on Tuesday Chobani’s appeal against a decision banning the Turkish company from using those words on its packaging in the UK unless it used raw materials from Greece.

Too right, Jo. Kids shouldn't be in smoky cars. Make the little buggers get out and walk.

Greece's sole oil producer, Energean Oil & Gas, has dampened expectations of a big offshore find, saying in November that preliminary geological data from the Ionian Sea had not been encouraging.

Energean, partly-owned by U.S. hedge fund Third Point LLC, has already been designated to look for hydrocarbons in two small blocks in Greece's west, which together may hold about 55 million barrels of oil and 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, according to government estimates.
