The US decision to shift its focus from the EastMed gas pipeline to regional electricity interconnectors is an opportunity for Greece. That's what energy expert Nikos Tsafos argued in his latest op-ed in Kathimerini - “Beyond the EastMed Pipeline”. Nikos Tsafos joins The Greek Current to talk about this piece, in which he explores the impact the proposed pipeline has had on the region despite questions over its feasibility, looks at this shift in US policy, and explains how this presents a unique opportunity for Greece to reframe the dialogue around energy and climate change in the region. Nikos Tsafos is the James R. Schlesinger Chair in Energy and Geopolitics with the Energy Security and Climate Change Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Read Nikos Tsafos's latest op-ed in Kathimerini: Beyond the EastMed pipelineYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here:Any east Med gas project must include Turkey, says ErdoganGreece to step up Parthenon marbles pressure amid signs tide is turningGreece to ban development in mountain areas to protect habitats

The fact that many of the marbles from the Parthenon reside in the British Museum (London) has been controversial since they first landed there in the early 19th century. In this complex tale Lord Elgin has often played the villain—he being the one who greedily had the sculptures removed from Athens to decorate his drafty Scottish mansion. But is the story that simple? In this episode Dave and Jeff tell the whole story front to back with an eye to several questions: does Elgin perhaps deserve a bit more sympathy than he usually gets? What are the arguments for keeping the artifacts in London, and for repatriation? Why should Lord Byron—noted defacer of Greek monuments—get a pass? My goodness, what on earth happened to Lord Elgin's nose? And, will the guys ever stop attempting Scottish accents?

The Turkish government has been inviting reporters to document migrant raids and border security construction at the Turkish-Iranian border, which has become a main point of entry for Afghans fleeing the Taliban. It's an effort Turkey is eager to put on display for Western journalists and observers in an effort to show the EU that it is dealing with the migrant issue for the whole bloc. Many analysts, however, see ulterior motives at play, and note that the EU's fear of migration is a tool that Turkish President Erdogan uses to obtain various financial and political incentives from the EU. Nektaria Stamouli, who visited the Turkish-Iranian border, joins The Greek Current to talk about Turkey's migrant security system, the challenges facing Afghans arriving at the border, and how this reflects on Europe. Nektaria Stamouli is a correspondent with Politico based in Athens covering Greece, Cyprus, and the Balkans.Read Nektaria Stamouli's latest piece in Politico here: Turkey puts its migrant security system on display for EuropeYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here: Italy sending Parthenon fragment to Athens in nudge to UKPetition: Return the Parthenon Sculptures!Cyprus mandates more testing to check rapid COVID-19 spreadSchools opening Monday, cabinet tweaks existing measures

Is there a new momentum for the return of Parthenon Marbles to Greece? That's what Janet Suzman, the chair of the British Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Marbles, argued in her latest op-ed for Kathimerini. Her piece came after Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis visited the United Kingdom, where he raised the issue of the Parthenon Marbles in his meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Despite Johnson's refusal, Greece has vowed to use “every means” in its quest to persuade London to relinquish the Parthenon sculptures, with a campaign that will focus on winning over the hearts and minds of Britons. Janet Suzman joins us on The Greek Current to talk about Prime Minister Mitsotakis' visit to the UK and the momentum it has given the campaign for the return of the Parthenon Marbles.Read Janet Suzman's op-ed in Kathimerini here: New momentum for return of Parthenon MarblesYou can read the articles we discuss on our podcast here:Pope Francis returns to Lesbos, Greece and pleads for action on migrant crisisCiting ancient Greeks, Pope Francis laments threats to democracy todayPope condemns treatment of migrants in EuropePope meets the Archbishop of AthensSecretary Blinken's Call with Greek Prime Minister MitsotakisPM heading to Russia: Transport, natural gas, East Med on the agenda

Every year Greece's Aegean islands go through tens of millions of plastic water bottles, as the islands look to accommodate not only the needs of local residents, but also millions of tourists. This has transformed these communities into some of the biggest consumers of plastic. This dependence on bottled water inevitably impacts the environment, as much of this plastic ends up in the sea. Greece's government has taken steps to wean the islands onto more sustainable water sources, such as by constructing desalination plants and pipelines, but challenges remain. Journalists Peter Schwartzstein and Alexander Clapp join The Greek Current to discuss their recent piece that looks into Greece's dependency on plastic bottles, its environmental impact, and the steps that are being taken to address this problem.Peter Schwartzstein is an environmental journalist covering the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East.

The US once again reiterated its firm opposition to Turkey's purchase and acquisition of the S-400 Russian defense missile system on Tuesday. A State Department spokesperson rejected a recent proposal by Turkey's Defense Minister Hulusi Akar, who stated that a possible compromise on this issue - which saw the US sanction Turkey under the CAATSA law - would see Turkey use the S-400s in the same way that the S-300 is used within NATO, a clear reference to the S-300s currently in Crete. The spokesperson also stressed that Turkey is the only country in NATO that has engaged in a significant new purchase of Russian weapons since CAATSA was passed into law.

Michael is joined by David Hill, former ABC chairman & chairman of Australians for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures Committee, about the fight Greek-Australians have mounted to return the exquisite Parthenon marbles to Athens.   The Parthenon Marbles (also known as the ‘Elgin' Marbles) were removed from the Acropolis in Athens by Lord Elgin, then British Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, over 200 years ago, and today reside in the British Museum.   Elgin claimed that he had the permission of the Ottoman authorities to strip the sculptures from the Parthenon, however doubts were raised about this as early as 1816, when the British Parliament debated the issue before finally deciding to purchase the sculptures.   The Australians for the Return of the Parthenon Sculptures is a committee of Australian-based Hellenes and Philhellenes that was formed in 2002 to lobby and campaign for the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures currently on display in the British Museum.

To the Acquario Cala Gonone in Sardinia to be precise. This lovely Aquarium sits atop a hill that affords a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean. Too bad, because we're headed inside right away. No time for a selfie. Okay. Maybe just one. Or two. All right. Are we set now? Good. Let's head inside. Admission? Uh, let's see. Adults, 12 euros. children 4-12, 6.50. Is anyone in the group over 65? Because that's 9 euros. Everyone set? Great. Here we go. We want to go directly to the shark exhibit. Uh, did anyone grab an aquarium map? What? No. I don't know where the lavatory is? I don't have a map. Can someone get a-Wait. Where are you people going. What do you mean? It's not time for a snack. Okay, you know what, you and I will head this way. I see a sign over here. This is the way we want to go. This is the tank that is home to the aquariums two female smooth-hound sharks. Hmmm? There are three sharks in there? Ah, yes. That's the odd news. You see, the aquarium has been home to these two smooth-hound sharks for over a decade. Just two females. But one of them recently gave birth. That one there, the baby, is named Isperia. Chances are good they didn't name it that in honor of the character from "Magic: The Gathering." The name means "Hope." But the big story here is that this means that smooth-hound sharks are probably capable of parthenogenesis. I know. That sounds like it's the origin story for the Parthenon, but no. It's a form of asexual reproduction and this would be the first documented case of it in this type of shark. In parthenogenesis, the egg is fertilized by what is known as a polar cell. It contains a duplicate of an egg's DNA. That means Isperia would actually be a genetic clone of her mother. So, when someone says to them "You two look so much alike." they would be 100% correct. This biological process has only been observed in three species of shark: the bonnethead, the blacktip shark and the zebra shark. The aquarium will be running DNA tests to help verify that Isperia is, in fact, a genetic clone. They should also warn Ingen that there may be a problem with the dinosaurs in their Jurassic Park. Can you hear me, Doctor Wu? Okay now, let's find the rest of the group. What do you mean they went out on a boat tour? What if Wally the Walrus is out there?

Nashville is known far and wide as Music City , but it's also the home to a full-size exact replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Geece. How this incredible architectural gem came to be dates back to the pioneer days when Nashville was dubbed the Athens of the South due to its passion for education and the arts. When the state of Tennessee celebrated its 1897 Centennial exhibition, Nashville contributed the Parthenon to house the Arts building. Join sculptor Alan LeQuire who created the Parthenon's 42 foot-tall statue of Athena eight decades after the conclusion of the centennial fair. We'll then visit with Wesley Paine Director of the Parthenon as she shares the story of the Parthenon's creation, experiencing the 1897 centennial exhibition, saving and renovating the structure in the 1920s and its function today as Nashville's gallery of art. This show was originally recorded in 2017 (Wesley Paine retired from her stellar career in May 2021). This show is reposted as a Best-of-the-Best

When Moses received the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai, law reached its pinnacle of glory. But unfortunately, law is not always so elevated. It can often be a swampy, hypocritical, grotesque affair. When we romanticize the ability of courts to bring about change, we make things too easy on ourselves. A court should be seen more as an "emergency room" than as the Parthenon. Franz Kafka was always careful to depict courtrooms as depraved places. In this week's parsha, the Torah warns us not to get too starry-eyed before the law. steventobyweinberg.comIG: Stevehead0001Music: Woody Guthrie - "Old Judge Thayer"

"About that time there arose a great disturbance about the Way.” Acts 19:23 The first Christians were described by the world as, “the Way.” Jesus said, “I am the way.” From the earliest days, Christians made no apology for boldly proclaiming that Jesus was the only way to God. He was not a way, but the way. The culture did not like this because it was filled with idols. This is especially true in the city of Ephesus which was the patron city of the God Artemis, also known as Diana. She ruled the wild animals and governed childbirth. She was also a crowd favorite. In Ephesus, there was a massive temple built in her honor. It was the biggest temple in the Mediterranean region. Four times larger than the Parthenon in Rome. It took 120 years to construct and was one of the seven wonders of the world. Thousands of pilgrims would make the journey from all over the known world to worship Artemis in Ephesus. So then we understand what unfolds next... The gospel provoked the religious climate of the city.  When Christianity is brought into any city it will pose a threat to that city's idols. In Ephesus it was the cult of Artemis. A goddess carved in stone. The people bowed down and made sacrifices to her and we modern people think, “How unsophisticated. Certainly we are well educated beyond giving our devotion to something that is made by human hands." Or are we? Our city has its' own covert gods and they are nevertheless appealing. There is an identifiable language to idolatry that you can recognize in yourself. You might say, “Well I have God but if I could just get that thing, then I'd really be happy. If I could just achieve this then I'd be somebody, then I'd be secure.” If so, then you are loving those things more than God. Even good things can become idols. In fact the most powerful idols are good things we turn into little gods. Perhaps the thing we idolize most is some earthly relationship. However, if you make a person your god, they will constantly disappoint you with their imperfections and you will constantly disappoint them with your expectations. Even the best human relationships end in death.  So how do we free ourselves from this? We don't stop loving the people who are close to us. We don't love them less. We love God more. How? By seeing Jesus on the cross. He died for you. So go ahead and put your highest devotion upon him!

Natchez Trace: A Road Through the Wilderness

"James Robertson and John Donelson, who lead settlement parties from Fort Patrick Henry to the Salt Lick where the Old Natchez Trace crossed the Cumberland River, are known as the co-founders of Nashville, which was the new name given to Fort Nashborough in 1784. "Robertson later became known as the 'Father of Tennessee.' "As a young man Andrew Jackson rode into the town in 1788, and had a great effect upon Nashville, and Tennessee and the building of the new nation along its frontier. His exploits along the Natchez Trace were many. We know of his famous trip down the Trace to marry Rachel Donelson Robards outside of Natchez. She was the daughter of John Donelson who brought the flotilla of boats to the great bend of the Cumberland River. Jackson's plantation home, the Hermitage, is a few miles east of Nashville. "Nashville has been the capitol of Tennessee since 1843, and though you may know it today as the 'Country Music Capitol of the World' it also carries the nickname of the 'Athens of the South' because of its numerous institutions of higher education plus its many buildings designed in the classical Greek style. There's even a replica of the Parthenon standing in Centennial Park. "Join us next time when we visit GARRISON CREEK.

Many people in the world love to travel. They enjoy going from destination to destination seeing one thing after another. I suppose that if I had the resources, traveling is one thing I would do as well. Our text is about such a traveling man. Paul was probably the greatest missionary that has ever served the Lord. When he lists some of the things he endured for the sake of the Gospel, one of the things he mentions is the fact that he was "in journeyings often", 2 Cor. 11:26. As this great man moved from location to location, he did not do so as a mere tourist. Although the cities through which he traveled contained some of the wonders of the ancient world, Paul wasn't looking for a t-shirt, nor was he just trying to fill his scrapbook with snapshots of the temple of Diana, the coliseum in Rome or the Parthenon in Athens. No, Paul's plans and purposes in traveling were far greater than such earthly things. He traveled from place to place not as a sightseer, but as a soul winner. As we investigate these verses about the travels of Paul, there are insights that we can learn that will help us as we travel through the Christian life. You see, every Christian is a pilgrim in this world, 1 Pet. 2:11. If we are to travel while we are here, then let us at least learn to make it count for God.

Melina Mercouri, famous actress turned politician, visited Britain in 1983 as Greek Minister of Culture and made the first official request for the return of the Parthenon marbles. The marbles were removed in 1801 by Lord Elgin, who was the British Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire at the time. Lord Elgin, who was based in Istanbul sent his agents to Athens to remove the marbles which he claimed were at risk of destruction. He later sold them to the British parliament who in turn entrusted them to the British Museum where they've been exhibited since 1832. This programme was first broadcast in 2019 (Photo: The Greek Minister for Culture, Melina Mercouri, inspects the Parthenon Marbles in the British Museum in May 1983)
