Blue, by stray dog ​​on a Greek beach in perfect therapy dog

 

When he met her, Valia was walking on the waterfront greek along with his dogs. The woman is an animal lover and was immediately approached the sad little dog who was curled up on the sand. Just saw her, she was immediately rolled to be caressed and Valia started to play with her.

“In Greece, unfortunately, it is normal to see many stray dogs. I try to save those who can not survive on the street: those sick or injured, puppies and pregnant females. ” The dog, however, did not fit into any of these categories and so Valia he left it on the beach, returning to visit her every day.
“I was in a panic. There was something about her that told me how vulnerable. He was so loving and in need of affection. ” So, after a few days, Valia has decided to take it home with her. He called it Blue, as the color of the sea that has been with us in the months of loneliness.
Valia, however, could only host it on hold temporarily to find a permanent family, and that’s how he met Folkerts. The Dutch couple had just lost his dog bark and was looking for a new addition to the family.
“The death of Bark has left us and our other dog Rincewind in complete despair”. Not only them, though: Bark and Rincewind, in fact, worked together as therapy dogs in a center for Alzheimer patients and even hotel guests felt the lack of their four-legged friend.

So when Folkerts viewed Blue they are instantly in love. Thanks to Second Chance Animal Rescue Society, Blue has been prepared for adoption and the transfer was arranged.

Valia telephoned the couple to see if Blue was compatible with their family, which already housed a dog and some cats. Then some Dutch friends on holiday in Greece have brought the dog from his new family.

“Rincewind was immediately in love with her, and even if it is with us only a few months we seem to know it all along.” Blue has also been trained as therapy animals and now attends the senior center together with his new canine friend.

“And ‘very good, it has a very gentle character and does not react even when patients make rash movements, screaming or have attacks of rage. This makes it a perfect therapy dog, “said Karin Folkerts.

Mykonos is the island from fashion here is where they go fashionistas

Beautiful beaches of tranquility and relaxation and nightlife. Mykonos, enclosed in the Cyclades archipelago, has a double face: beach paradise

The shoe designer Bruno Bordese is a true regulars (there goes 85). “The beauty of Mykonos is the all-day beach: you can go to the beach in the morning and stay until the aperitif, but also for dinner and after dinner. There are places equipped at all hours: number one is Alemàgou Beach Bar Restaurant in Ftelia. Cosmopolitan, elegant, with boho-chic sessions, here you can breathe a unique atmosphere, the food is excellent and “risks” to meet many designers, from Peter Dundas (creative director Roberto Cavalli) Kris Van Assche until Olivier Rousteing, head of Balmain designer. If I want to enjoy a cocktail at sunset with great DJ sets I choose the beach club restaurant Scorpios, from design inspired by nature. If I want to isolate myself from everything I go to dinner at Kiki’s Tavern (you can not book!), A hut on the beach of Agios Sostis in typical greek style and no electricity where you prepare meat and fish on a grill wood. It’s so isolated, hidden and suggestive that is already a haven for VIPs. There I even met Madonna. “

Get the selfie is a disease?

According to some studies, yes, insane narcissism and psychopathology behind the obsession for the self-portrait

Obsession of selfie has something pathological. It is the thesis of a study of 800 men by Jesse Fox, assistant professor of communication at Ohio State, and Margaret Rooney. The research titled “The Dark Triad” in reference to what Fox calls “not a nice personality constellation” in reference to the set of selfie and that would consist of “narcissism as an extreme focus on oneself”, “Machiavellianism as manipulation other “and” impulsiveness psychopathological selfless to others. ” A fairly bleak. But the news is full of incidents of people dying by accident or committed suicide because of a selfie, a sign that a fund “noir” – as claimed by Fox – can cloud up to that point, the reasoning so that some speak of “selficidio”.
The study published in Personality and Individual Differences believes that while the company is a formidable instrument of social relations, there is a niche of users that you have found a very big stage for his own narcissism.

Especially those who frequently change the picture on Facebook or Instagram may have narcissistic traits. Similar observations were reported last year in a study of 400 men and women published in Social Networking. Post photos on social can in many cases have a positive effect on their world of relationships and also on the psychological, and in any case are not the company, according to experts, because of narcissism, but rather an opportunity to make it emerge. Never before in history have we been able to get in touch with millions of people through a photo at such low cost. For clinicians all have a touch – and even more – of narcissism, but there is a narcissism “good” or “bad” one that immerses you to the point in selfie edge of a cliff to fall down.

Something About the Greek islands. Here are available (despite the price and bureaucracy)

Greek island: and ‘the unusual wedding gift that Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to do with Jorge Mendes, at the wedding of his historic prosecutor on 3 August. It ‘s not known what is the island chosen it’ the price but there are rumors that the champion Real Madrid has shelled out around 4 million Euros. Certainly less than you would spend to make a penthouse in Chelsea.
It ‘s always been the dream of super-rich men own their own island. And today, thanks to the disastrous situation of the country, the favorite seems to be Greece, where private owners, in view of the increase in property taxes, they decide to market their own jewels of the sea, which has always been handed down from generation to generation.
There are about twenty islands owned ‘private currently for sale. On the site Private Islands Online, specializing in the sale of its islands around the world, sixteen are today “available for sale”. The most ‘expensive (although for many the price is not’ visible unless requested) and ‘Omfori, worth 56 million Euros, “a paradise on earth” in the Ionian Sea of ​​4.5 million square meters on which the government granted the necessary permits to build up to 20% of the territory.

It follows, always in the Ionian Sea, Dulichium 44 million EUR 5.4 million square meters – making it the most ‘extensive private Greek island – the mouth of the Gulf of Corinth. But with much less (4.9 million euro) you can ‘buy Stroggilo that, in spite of the gossip in July that gave Johnny Depp as a buyer, it is still for sale on the site: the island of 218 thousand square meters to 110 meters of the beach, it is located in the Aegean Sea near the most ‘tourist Patmos. For “only” 3.3 million Euros you can ‘buy Linhari Peninsula, 10 minutes from Corinth. “The price and ‘already’ been halved – precise Private Islands Online – this incredible opportunity ‘not remain’ free long.” But the island more ‘economic you can’ find another portal specialized Valdi Private Islands, based in Hamburg and that today are five solutions: 1.6 million Euros sells St. Athanasios, a mini islet 10 thousand square meters ever in the Gulf of Corinth.
Also having the chance ‘, buy a Greek island and not’ anyway so ‘easy: many are not building, and for other difficult’ access to private planes, too many bureaucratic procedures to obtain permission. “National pride and red tape holding back the business,” explained a few days ago Farhad Vladi, founder of the real estate group. “Who buys should get no less than 32 permits, including ok Defense Ministry and Agriculture, in the end the customer often forget exasperated by the government greek.” Not to mention that in Greece the beaches are public, which ‘means that no matter how remote the island can be any person can’ dock and plant your own umbrella.
Contrary to what some imagine in Germany and Finland, but also in Switzerland, where members of the extreme right have demanded that Athens repay the debts by selling the islands, the greek state owns only a modest number. Among the properties’ public instead they include pieces of land also quite areas. For example, about a third of the island of Mykonos and ‘owned’ public. Currently, the public fund greek privatization (HRADF) has held islands and land. The property that are part of the fund are 35 palaces, and the rest ‘represented by companies’, banks, airport concessions and 10 port concessions.

However, buying an island in Greece can ‘be more’ simple than buying a villa or a land with beach. The Land Registry greek and ‘backlog. Are only 4 million properties’ surveyed and recorded. The Agency of Land Registry is completing 28 projects detection which represents 62% of the greek territory. The objective and ‘complete mapping of the properties’ by 2020.

sea-park-main
The history of this island and very troubled, because, in 1952, with the arrival of phylloxera that began to ravage the vineyards from California, the agricultural sector was severely compromised; sometimes, as they say, the worst there is no end in fact, in 1965, the island was disrupted by a huge earthquake that brought the people to move in a hurry in the Patitiri abandoning their homes to find refuge in new earthquake-resistant buildings. To get a small summary of the history of this island, you can visit the Folklore Museum and the Northern Sporades, located behind the beach marina, a private pole owned by Kostas and Anghela Mavrikis that, from May to September, invites tourists to get into the tradition admiring everyday objects that tell the lifestyle of the local as well as make a complete picture of Greek history and the wars that have seen protagonist.

Once out of the museum you can savor the sparkling side of the island between souvenir shops, cafes and taverns where to sit back and enjoy the view as “Alonissos”, a tasty restaurant where you can try the specialties of the house. From here everything begins and everything ends Patitiri, with its picturesque port set in a small bay, is the starting point for any adventure, primarily the National Marine Park of Alonissos, established in 1992, a marvel jealously preserved that articulates in 2200 kilometers square of surface, habitat for about 300 species of fish, dolphins and she, the seal Monachus-Monachus, the rarest species in the world as well as endangered, protected from Mom, the Greek Association for the Study and the defense of Foca Mediterranean which, since 1988, is responsible for defending the marine and coastal environment. In order to know with their own eyes this paradise, it’s worth taking part in day trips aboard the “Gorgona” in the company of Captain Pakis Athanasiou driving, with his stories, at a time of wonders like the Blue Grotto, Peristera, Agios Demetrios then reach Kyra Panagia and visit the monastery, still under construction, where you can buy wine, olive oil, souvenirs and various sacred objects.
Its small size, it is about twenty kilometers in length, allow to discover it in full in a few days, which is by car or scooter: do not miss the old Alonissos, or its Chora, a place with a high level of romance set on the top of a hill where you fall in love those white houses full of fuchsia bougainvillea, a particularly scenic at sunset when the sun gives fascinating play of light and colors that illuminate immense. Here you can stroll among the shops, stopping off in one of the many restaurants and cafes as the “Taverna To Aloni” from whose terrace offers a climate of total relaxation, surrounded by the atmosphere simple and familiar while, to delight the palate, we think specialties such as the famous cheese cake, the tyropita.
