Honda CB250 Nighthawk scrambler by Urban Mechanics

Released in the early 1980s, the Honda CB250 Nighthawk quickly became an immensely popular model for the Japanese marque. That was largely thanks to the quarter-liter parallel twin’s maneuverability, utilitarian nature, and bullet-proof reliability. Despite al its strong suits, the chopper-inspired CB250 has never been much of a looker. But that didn’t stop Mike and Tom of Greece’s Urban Mechanics from recognizing the little CB’s potential for customization, and putting the Honda up on the b...

What a Leader Does in Times of Crisis

The Apostle Paul was an effective leader. He was the arguably the most successful church planter of all times; managing to plant churches and write books we are still using today. There is an interesting story in Acts 19 of a time of crisis. I call it a crisis because the sub-heading in my Bible calls it “The Riot in Ephesus.” Have you ever witnessed a riot? It sounds chaotic – like a crisis. And apparently it wasn’t a small riot. Notice this verse: “About that time there was a major distu...

Antenna TV: Your face Sounds Familiar - Equalizers

ANT1, one of the top TV channels in Greece, is about to host an all-time-favourite show for its sixth season: Your Face Sounds Familiar. The show is based on a global concept, upon which celebrity contestants "transform" into global or local singers to show off both singing and disguise skills. Combining these axes - image and sound - we created a print campaign that puts the name of the show... to the test. ...

Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky unveils his latest work, ‘Of Love and Rage,’ in Southern California

Even among elite choreographers, Alexei Ratmansky early on generated great excitement. American Ballet Theatre hired him the nanosecond he left the celebrated — but notoriously hidebound — Bolshoi Ballet, where he was artistic director from 2004 to the end of 2008. ABT created the new position of Artist in Residence just for him. His primary task: to create new ballets. But that shorthand hardly summarizes the impact Ratmansky has had since moving to New York City in 2009. America’s second oldes...

Podcast #588: The Audacious Command of Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great became king of Macedonia at age 19. By age 30 he controlled an empire that spanned from Greece to India. In the two thousand years after his early death, his influence has persisted. Military leaders from Caesar to Napoleon studied his campaigns and imitated his strategies and tactics, and without Alexander, the influence of Greek culture on the world wouldn’t have been the same.  My guest today has written a very readable, yet academically authoritative biography of this ...

Volunteer Tourists Are Still Showing Up at Greek Refugee Camps. Are They Really Helping?

When Omar Alshakal, a 26 year-old Syrian refugee, arrived on the Greek island of Lesbos , having swum across the Mediterranean from Turkey in 2014, he found the Moria refugee camp to be flooded with young, Western volunteers. After spending time almost a year in the camp, Alshakal began to notice a trend. “When young people arrive from their countries, they see kids here and fall in love with them,” says Alshakal, who founded his own organization, Refugee 4 Refugee, in 2017. “They sp...

New discoveries in neuroscience show what’s right and wrong with AI

Two separate studies, one by UK-based artificial intelligence lab DeepMind and the other by researchers in Germany and Greece, display the fascinating relations between AI and neuroscience. As most scientists will tell you, we are still decades away from building artificial general intelligence, machines that can solve problems as efficiently as humans. On the path to creating general AI, the human brain, arguably the most complex creation of nature, is the best guide we have. Advances in neuros...

18 Easy Steps for Planning Your Next Trip

Updated: 02/24/20 | February 24th, 2020 I remember when I started planning my first trip around the world. I had no idea what I was doing. When I decided to quit my job and travel the world, I walked into a bookstore and bought Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on Shoestring. Buying that guidebook was my first step toward long-term travel. It made the trip seem more real, more tangilbe. It made it all seem possible. While helpful, the book didn’t exactly prepare me for planning a trip around the ...

Forensic Architecture redeploys surveillance-state tech to combat state-sponsored violence

The specter of constant surveillance hangs over all of us in ways we don’t even fully understand, but it is also possible to turn the tools of the watchers against them. Forensic Architecture is exhibiting several long-term projects at the Museum of Art and Design in Miami that use the omnipresence of technology as a way to expose crimes and violence by oppressive states. Over seven years Eyal Weizman and his team have performed dozens of investigations into instances of state-sponsored violence...

Greece halts construction on new refugee camps

Greece (MNN) — Aegean locals are tiring of refugees from Turkey, but migration doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon. Greece has decided to stop construction on new refugee camps, but Tasos Ioannidis with AMG International believes that the situation is only meant to appease locals and won’t last very long. Neither are the islanders going to get what they really want. “They want, really, the refugees to be moved from the islands to the mainland, and the government does not want to do t...

The Globally Networked Museum – Could It Be The Museum Model For The 21st Century?

Greece and Britain have the opportunity to renew their respective stories by leading the way in creating a museum for the 21st century. How it would be organised would be open to discussions. But at a minimum, it would be a consortium of museums from around the world prepared to contribute works from their own collections to tell the story of human history. The exhibits would depict the way that past thought, religion, politics, art and history has formed a platform for each stage of hu...

Arsenal Master Mikel Arteta Blueprint In Win Over Everton

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has praised his side for shrugging off their congested fixture schedule to beat Everton – and believes the players met his tactical demands for large periods of the game. The Gunners came from a goal down to take all three points against the Toffees in a five-goal thriller at the Emirates Stadium to cap an impressive week, with three victories in the space of seven days. Dominic Calvert-Lewin opened the scoring after just 51 seconds with an acrobatic strike befor...

3 "symptoms" of atheism, as described by a Christian minister

A recently published article claims to identify the symptoms of "low-level atheism."Among these symptoms are worrying, cursing, and not tithing. There is a solution to all of this though, not being an atheist. Sending in money is also involved. Alaskan minister Tad Lindley recently published an essay pointing out the symptoms of low-level atheism. This groundbreaking work, destined to be the foundation of further theological study for decades to come, identifies three major symptoms of the condi...

KFC: The Story of the Little One

Despite its worldwide renowned fame, KFC operates just 7 stores in Greece, making it hard to establish connection and build brand image. Therefore, KFC's iconic tagline "finger lickin' good" as well as its ballsy brand character are unknown to Greeks. In an attempt to "wake up" those assets and transform the "sweet American grandpa" - as Greek perception has it - to a cool guy you'd hang out with, we employed storytelling; but not the casual one. Storytelling that can have scr...

The European Union will demand that Britain gives a collection of ancient marble sculptures back to Greece as part of a post-Brexit trade deal.
