Καλά τα στοιχεία του παρακάτω άρθρου αλλά γιατί η Ευρώπη παρ'ολη την διαφθορά στην Ελλάδα συνέςχιζε να την δανείζει; Μήπως και η Ευρώπη έχει την δική της διαφθορά; Μήπως θα πρέπει και αυτή to put its house in order?

As a rule, one should not panic at whatever crisis has momentarily fixed the attention of cable news producers. But the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, which has migrated to both Europe and America, may be the exception that proves the rule. There are at least six reasons that a controlled, informed panic might be in order.
CDC DIRECTOR THOMAS FRIEDEN AND COLLEAGUES
(1) Start with what we know, and don’t know, about the virus. Officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other government agencies claim that contracting Ebola is relatively difficult because the virus is only transmittable by direct contact with bodily fluids from an infected person who has become symptomatic. Which means that, in theory, you can’t get Ebola by riding in the elevator with someone who is carrying the virus, because Ebola is not airborne.
This sounds reassuring. Except that it might not be true. There are four strains of the Ebola virus that have caused outbreaks in human populations. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the current outbreak (known as Guinean EBOV, because it originated in Meliandou, Guinea, in late November 2013) is a separate clade “in a sister relationship with other known EBOV strains.” Meaning that this Ebola is related to, but genetically distinct from, previous known strains, and thus may have distinct mechanisms of transmission.
Not everyone is convinced that this Ebola isn’t airborne. Last month, the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy published an article arguing that the current Ebola has “unclear modes of transmission” and that “there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not facemasks.”
ATHENS — The omnibus bill, more than 100 pages long and titled “Measures of Support and Growth for the Greek Economy,” won passage here in the middle of the night in March, as Parliament raced to meet a deadline set by Greece’s creditors.
Only afterward did a legislator from the governing New Democracy party notice an unsettling provision. Buried on page 78 was language that essentially gave retroactive immunity to thousands of workers in state-funded organizations that could shield them from future corruption prosecutions.
That change is among a flurry of new immunity provisions, often slipped into complex or unrelated bills this year, that have triggered outrage among law enforcement officials and critics of the government, who fear that long-awaited efforts to clamp down on corruption are being stymied.

Παρακάτω παρουσιάζονται μια σειρά από φωτογραφίες από όλη την Ελλάδα, οι οποίες ίσως ένα μικρό δείγμα που αποδεικνύει ότι ζούμε σε μια μαγευτική χώρα.
Ο Παράδεισος επί της Γης πραγματικά υπάρχει και βρίσκεται φυσικά στην Ελλάδα!
Ελλάς, σημαίνει «οι πέτρες του φωτός» και ο λόγος είναι αυτός:
