Malaria makes a comeback in southern Greece



Forty-years since the last recorded case of malaria in Greece, the disease everyone thought was a thing of the past is back. There have been 28 cases among the Greek population in the southern agricultural land of Laconia in the last year alone. Higher temperatures caused by global warming and the economic crisis have both contributed to the resurgence. Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor Wood reports from Laconia, Southern Greece.

2. Yeah, The Curse of Goldman Sachs

GS helped them cook their books in order to hide debt to get into the EU. Now they are paying the price. They should pull an Iceland and tell the EU and the Banksters to go fuck themselves. Seems to have worked for them.
