Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8851 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0725 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1298 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9324 €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.

Faithful and friendly little dog appears to have been abandoned at bulk bins in a village outside Lixouri, been waiting two days for its owner. Needs a temporary/forever home fairly urgently.

Jesus could have been transgender, claims Cambridge dean
The dean of Trinity College said such a view was 'legitimate' after a row over a sermon by a student that claimed Christ had a 'trans body'

Jesus could have been transgender, according to a University of Cambridge dean.

Dr Michael Banner, the dean of Trinity College, said such a view was “legitimate” after a row over a sermon by a Cambridge research student that claimed Christ had a “trans body”, The Telegraph can disclose.

The “truly shocking” address at last Sunday’s evensong at Trinity College chapel, saw Joshua Heath, a junior research fellow, display Renaissance and Medieval paintings of the crucifixion that depicted a side wound that the guest preacher likened to a vagina.

Worshippers told The Telegraph they were left “in tears” and felt excluded from the church, with one shouting “heresy” at the Dean upon leaving.

Aye, and he might've been a brilliant footballer, too.

5.4 million Twitter users' stolen data leaked online — more shared privately

Over 5.4 million Twitter user records containing non-public information stolen using an API vulnerability fixed in January have been shared for free on a hacker forum.

Another massive, potentially more significant, data dump of millions of Twitter records has also been disclosed by a security researcher, demonstrating how widely abused this bug was by threat actors.

The data consists of scraped public information as well as private phone numbers and email addresses that are not meant to be public.

W.e.f. 01/01/24, some alternatives mentioned in link, FoxClone might have fewer features but might also be easier to use.
