  1. Let see if Greece is ready to take baby-steps towards a better government for all Greek people. While history is not on Greece's side, maybe some Greeks did learn something from the financial crisis and everything that led up to it. Only time will tell. For now, removing Tsipras and SYRIZA from government is a step in the right direction.
  2. On June 24, Monday night in front of an audience, John Lithgow, Annette Bening, Kevin Kline, Kyra Sedgwick, Alyssa Milano, Michael Shannon, Alfre Woodard, Joel Grey and more took the stage at New York’s Riverside Church for a live reading of “The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in Ten Acts.” The 10 acts of the play each had a title corresponding to an act of possible obstruction committed by Trump.
  3. I'm adding a Greek-Cypriot to this list of guitar players. His name is Alexis Kasinos and he's a young jazz player. More info at his website here.
  4. Disappointing series for the Bucks. Yes, they are a young team with lots to learn. Giannis, a gifted player, has to work on his shooting game. He has to be able to score from anywhere, not just inside the paint. The Raptors adjusted great after going down two games. They deserve going to the finals.
  5. Raptors take Game 3 in double overtime (118-112). Giannis has 12 points., 23 rebounds and 7 assists. So much for my predictions, huh?
  6. On the day Antetokounmpo was named a finalist for regular-season MVP, he produced an MVP performance with 30 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal.
  7. Bucks squeak by in game 1. Take the lead in the series with 108-100 win. Giannis has 29 points and 11 rebounds. For a moment there, I did think that the Raptors were going to pull this off.
  8. My pick: The Bucks steamroll over the Raptors in 4 games. No doubt it will be an exciting series and will come to cement Giannis as a world class basketball player.
  9. For those that missed it.... Συγχαρητήρια ρε ΠΑΟΚτζήδες!!

  12. Joe Biden entered the race and raises $6.3 M in his first day. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders pounce on Biden.
  13. Words matter. Words coming from the leader of a nation carry even more weight. His choice of words is not coincidental. It is this choice of words that I find myopic in terms of leading a country. Short term political gains that erode a nation's long-term social cohesion.
  14. This is the most cheekiest penalty you will ever see. Eric Bautheac just destroyed the keeper.
  15. Again, if a group of people have the right to protest, they either do it in a legal or illegal manner. There's nothing that says one choice is more 'Australian' than the other. The choice is strictly between 'legal' or 'illegal' This is exactly what you said. The term you used is 'Wake up' and urges people to move from the stage of sleep (subconscious) to that of consciousness (reality). Read for yourself. The term 'the People' is not a descriptor of numbers. Rather, it implies individuals that are members of the working class in a society and each are on equal
  16. I would call that illegal trespassing and have them arrested. Still, I don't see how a label like 'un-Australian' could be used for anything else other than divisive purposes. Funny how you think that people that don't think like you, are not part of the same reality. The sooner one comes to terms that there could be multiple opinions on some issues, the better it is for all. Through discussion, new ideas emerge, and the world moves past labels and divisive stigma. "Democracy... is a charming form of government, full of variety and disorder; and dispensing a sort of equality to e
  17. Wow. Calling something un-Australian because it does not agree with one's culinary preferences, or does freedom of speech only apply to online forums and social media? Even the fact that Mr. Morrison now all of a sudden can label those that disagree with him as un-Australian, should make any citizen of the country crap in their pants. Of course, Australia does not have explicit freedom of speech in any constitutional or statutory declaration of rights, with the exception of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution at common law per Australian Capital Television P
  18. One more extension worth looking into is TimeLineTable. It generates timelines contained in html tables. From a list of events in the correct format, the extension will generate a html table. I'll try and install sometime tomorrow....
  19. For a crush course on how wikitables work, look here.
  20. Oops! Looks like some of these extensions are out of date... Only DataTable2 seems to be acceptable...
  21. So, I'm trying to find some easy and practical way to create good looking tables in the Wiki. Basically, I think we need to start looking at how to create templates and utilize extensions. Do you guys know anything about templates. I have to admit, that I haven't worked on the Wiki in a while, and I sort of forgot my way around. When it comes to extensions, I'd like you input regarding a couple of them. Take a look at these: PropertyTables DataTable2 Simple Table I will install all three and you can test them out. Let me know if I can help or answer any questi
  22. U.S. prosecutors unsealed an indictment accusing him of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to hack a Defense Department computer network in 2010 to obtain secret documents that WikiLeaks hoped to publish. That attempt was unsuccessful. The US Justice Department is playing it smart and is going after him for theft of secrets (more charges might follow). Press advocates are not stepping behind Assange. What makes you believe that Assange was doing stuff for the 'greater good'? After all, Assange appeared to be a tool of Russian meddling to support Donald Trump, or was that part of the 'greater
  23. The Ecuadorian Embassy removed Julian Assange and handed him to British police. Assange faces a charge in the U.S. and will possibly be extradited. Is Julian Assange and WikiLeaks part of the Free Press or just an activist group that might be held accountable for actions that ran counter to laws? The Washington Post seems to think that Julian Assange needs to be held accountable for his actions. Read an opinion by the WP Editorial Board: Julian Assange is not a free-press hero. And he is long overdue for personal accountability. I agree with this opinion and would like to furthe
  24. It's nice to hear some reasonable talk from a Presidential candidate.
