British tourists outraged at being overcharged at Rhodes restaurant

first_imgBritish holidaymakers took to social media after a Rhodes restaurant charged them 82 euros for just eight soft drinks. Vikki Scott, on a break with four people, said she was stunned to be charged 14 euros for just one milkshake and felt that she was ‘ripped off’.On Facebook, she wrote:‘Went to The Gate restaurant in Old Rhodes Town for a drink! The bill for eight soft drinks was €82 – €14 for a milkshake!!‘I confronted him and all he could say was ‘thank you lady’ people like him should not be allowed to rip off tourists.‘On our way back he posed for the photo until he realised who I was then he followed me down the street telling me I couldn’t take his photo. Please share this especially in Rhodes sites to stop others getting ripped off!’She shared a photo of the receipt, but is not the first social media user that has accused this particular business of overcharging tourists. The restaurant is rated as one star on TripAdvisor where 103 reviewers out of 161 were dissatisfied with the restaurant.Responses to Ms Scott’s complaint were not all positive with a number of respondents warning that those who don’t read the menu only have themselves to blame.Last month, a restaurant in Mykonos also was criticised for overcharging tourists.  Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Cyprus serial killer sentenced to seven life terms for murdering foreign women

first_imgCypriot army captain Nicholas Metaxas, 35, was sentenced to several life terms in prison after pleading guilty to premeditated murder and kidnapping of seven women and girls.A three-judge panel of Cyprus criminal court said that the accused chose defenceless women who came to Cyprus looking for work, and that he didn’t hesitate to kill children. He pleaded guilty to premeditated murder and was sentenced to seven life terms – five will run consecutively and two concurrently. Judges said there could be no mitigating circumstances as they described how he sought many of his victims on online social networks using the handle Orestes35 before having sex with them.After killing his victims, he dumped his bodies in a toxic man-made lake near the village of Mitsero. Reading from a prepared statement, Metaxas tearfully apologised to the families of his victims for the pain he caused them. He said he did not “have any clear answers” as to why he committed the murders and is still struggling to figure that out. “I cannot go back in time and undo what I have done,” he told a packed courtroom, surrounded by armed police.He asked for an expert panel to do examine him and delve into the reasons for his actions, and he spoke of unspecified events in his past that he had tried to suppress. Originally, he had told investigators that he was prompted to strangle two of his victims because of “hatred” and suspicions that they prostituted their daughters. He said he choked the children s they slept so they would not have to suffer.Prosecutors said investigations into the mothers had shown that they were caring for their children.His victims included four Filipino women, including the daughter of one, a Nepalese woman and a Romanian woman and her daughter. Six of his victims died of strangulation and one from a head injury. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

North Macedonia erects sign to admit the Greek identity of Alexander the

first_imgThe Alexander the Great statue at the centre of Skopje, North Macedonia, had been a source of conflict with Greece that accused its neighbouring country of borrowing from its history.North Macedonian authorities on Friday erected a sign at the base of the statue that points to the Greek origins of the figure. The statue was part of the highly-funded Skopje 2014 project of the right-wing leadership of North Macedonia aimed at provoking Greece by erecting statues of figures like Alexander the Great that were claimed to be part of North Macedonia’s history.A sign was placed underneath to state that Alexander the Great “belonged to ancient Hellenic history and civilisation.” Unfortunately, within 24 hours the sign was vandalised and destroyed.Earlier, upon the sign’s erection, Greek former foreign minister Nikos Kotzias Tweeted that “this is an action of friendship between peoples, which strikes at irrendentism. This is an answer to all those who were swearing at me.”Mr Kotzias was one of the creators of the controversial Prespes Agreement, that put an end to the long-running name dispute with North Macedonia.The agreement stipulates that North Macedonia is obliged to highlight that the nation has no relation to the history and civilisation of Greece, Alexander the Great, his father Philip of Macedonia or the ancient Macedonian Kingdom.

Le premier smartphone HD est signé LG

Sommeil polyphasique questce que cest et comment ça marche

first_imgSommeil polyphasique : qu’est-ce que c’est et comment ça marche ?La méthode de sommeil la plus répandue est le sommeil monophasique, durant la nuit. Mais il existe une autre méthode : le sommeil polyphasique. Découvrez toutes les informations dans cet article concocté par Maxisciences !Définition du sommeil polyphasiqueCe mode de repos consiste à répartir ses heures de sommeil sur un cycle de 24 h, donc tout au long de la journée. Cette méthode permet ainsi de diminuer le temps de sommeil pour dégager un maximum de temps libre dans sa journée.Le sommeil polyphasique se décline donc en plusieurs siestes pendant votre quotidien. Il existe d’ailleurs plusieurs possibilités de sommeil polyphasique. Voici les différents scénarios de ce mode de repos :- Siesta : 6 h + 1 sieste de 20 min – Everyman 2 : 4 h 30 + 2 siestes de 20 min- Everyman 3 : 3 h + 3 siestes de 20 min- Everyman 4 : 1 h 30 + 4 siestes de 20 min- Uberman : 6 siestes de 20 min toutes les 4 heures- Dymaxion : 4 siestes de 30 min toutes les 6 heures Pourquoi pratiquer ce type de sommeil ?La plupart des personnes utilisant le sommeil polyphasique cherchent à dégager du temps libre pour différentes raisons : le travail, les loisirs…Ce sommeil aide à gagner de l’énergie et de la productivité mais il existe de nombreux inconvénients. En effet, le corps et le cerveau peuvent avoir du mal à s’adapter, sans compter les inconvénients sur le plan social. Ce type de sommeil implique de vivre en décalé par rapport à la société habituée à un sommeil monophasique, les personnes qui le pratiquent sont donc souvent seules et doivent adapter leur quotidien au rythme des siestes.Attention toutefois à ne pas adopter cette méthode sans consulter un médecin, cela vous permettra d’éviter des effets indésirables.Une méthode à suivre scrupuleusementPratiquer le sommeil polyphasique n’est pas chose facile ; il faut rester organisé et ne rater aucune sieste, ce qui peut être rapidement contraignant.À lire aussiToxoplasmose : symptômes, traitement, grossesse, quels sont les risques ?Il convient d’adapter son corps à un nouveau rythme en respectant certaines étapes. Avoir provisoirement un sommeil biphasique et faire une sieste dans la journée peut être une bonne étape pour changer de cycle.Le changement de rythme doit s’effectuer doucement, c’est pourquoi il est recommandé d’ajouter des siestes progressivement en gardant des horaires fixes.Restez toutefois vigilants avant de vous lancer dans ce changement. Demandez à un médecin de vous accompagner durant ce processus, assurez-vous d’être en bonne santé et d’avoir assez de volonté pour mener à bien ce projet exigeant une discipline rigoureuse.Le 17 janvier 2019 à 17:27 • Laure Bochlerlast_img read more

Geek Pick: iPad Air 2019 Covers Your Tablet Bases

first_img Tablets have been around long enough now that along with existing as a middle ground between phones and laptops, there are various subcategories within the product space as well. The line between high-end phones and small tablets is blurrier than ever, and the same goes for high-end tablets and modest laptops. But if you want something firmly in the center, check out the new iPad Air. Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls Stay on target This third-generation of Apple’s full-sized but lightweight tablet is the surprising comeback of a brand that had been dormant since 2014. And at $499 it’s neither the cheapest iPad you can get (that’s the plain old iPad) nor the most expensive (that’s an iPad Pro). The new iPad Air is in the middle between them.And that’s reflected in the specs. The iPad Air has the 9.7-inch screen of a 2018 iPad as well as support for the first (but not second) generation of the Apple Pencil smart stylus. However, it also features the much-improved A12 processor (think augmented reality) of other modern iOS devices along with support for Apple’s nifty physical connected keyboard some argue is superior to the current MacBook keyboard. These upgrades turn the tablet and its potential for real work into a modest little sibling to the iPad Pro. In fact, the iPad Air’s headphone jack gives it a leg up on that technically more powerful device.If you are confused by choices and aren’t entirely sure what tablet you think you’re supposed to get, chances are the new iPad Air will cover most of your big-screen iOS (or soon iPadOS) bases.

Japanese union leader lends support to ILWU

first_imgFusao Ohori, a Japanese union leader who’d flown from Tokyo to support locked-out union dockworkers in Vancouver and Portland, leaned in Friday to answer a reporter’s questions when the gray van, its windows obscured, suddenly reappeared at the metal gate.The vehicle had delivered non-union workers to the United Grain Corp. export terminal at the Port of Vancouver a few minutes earlier. Ohori had joined picket longshore workers who have been frozen out of work since late February in a larger contract dispute between International Longshore and Warehouse workers and grain handlers in the Pacific Northwest.As the van approached, several ILWU members rushed to catch Ohori’s attention. Someone handed the visitor a yellow picket sign. Quickly, he joined the union workers at the gate to help send another message to those inside the vehicle.One of the picketers, having finished marching in front of it, broke an initial silence: “Lord loves a workin’ man,” he screamed, “but he doesn’t love you, scab!”Friday’s event punctuated the tension surrounding a lockout that’s been under way for more than three months. It’s prompted local government leaders to call for a resolution. It’s triggered opposing charges at the National Labor Relations Board. It’s given Eastern Washington grain growers jitters about getting their products to market. And it’s drawn attention from international labor groups.last_img read more

Borough Looks At Naming An Unnamed Lake

first_imgIn a memo to the assembly from Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce, Ryan Richards, a pilot from Anchorage, has requested the name of Jade Lake for a small unnamed alpine lake in the Chigmit Mountains of the Alaska Range. The lake is located at an elevation of 2,926 feet approximately 10 miles southwest of Mount Redoubt, and 25 miles north of Mount Iliamna. The Alaska Historical Commission has requested comments on the proposal to name an unnamed lake in the Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. According to Mr. Richards, the lake resembles the official jade gemstone of the State of Alaska on a clear calm day. It is accessible by small floatplane and is the epitome of wild, scenic and rugged Alaska.center_img The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will look at the resolution at their meeting on Tuesday, February 6.

State Pledges 56M for UAS Park at Grand Forks AFB

first_imgNorth Dakota is allocating $5.6 million to support the continued development of the Grand Sky unmanned aerial systems (UAS) business and aviation park at Grand Forks AFB, Gov. Jack Dalrymple (R) said Monday.About $3 million of the funding will be used to upgrade a flight tarmac and other infrastructure that will support UAS testing and flight operations, according to a release from the governor’s office.“North Dakota’s leadership in the growing UAS industry is attracting national attention and we remain committed to developing our expertise and assets into a national hub for UAS manufacturing, research and development,” Dalrymple said.The 217-acre project is being developed under an enhanced use lease with Grand Forks County and calls for 1.2 million square feet of hangar, office, shop, laboratory and data center space required for UAS development, testing and training, sensor technology development, and data analysis and management. The county awarded a sublease to Grand Sky Development Co. to develop the project.The state has provided more than $30 million to the project now under construction. In April, Northrop Grumman agreed to become Grand Sky’s anchor tenant. In February, North Dakota landed its first UAS manufacturing venture when ComDel Innovation and Altavian begin manufacturing UAS and UAS components at its plant in Wahpeton.

Razer Core X Chroma eGPU brings back the rainbow

first_img Razer lights up with a new display and updated Blade… Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment 2:48 Preview • Razer’s Core X unleashes an eGPU priced to compete Sarah Tew/CNET Razer’s Core X Chroma brings back the features which the company dropped from its sleeker Core V2 external GPU when it launched the “affordable” Core X line about a year ago: The USB hub, Ethernet connection and support for two-zone Chroma lighting (one zone on the side, one in the front.)It’s priced like the V2 at $399, sans graphics card (last year’s Core X is $299) and is available now in the US. It will subsequently ship in other regions, including the UK and Australia. We don’t have those prices, but the US price converts directly to about £305 and AU$560. The Core X Chroma is beefier than it siblings, supporting up to three slot-wide cards, with a power supply to match: 700 watts, compared to the Core X’s 650 watts. It includes four USB-A ports, gigabit Ethernet and a single USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 connection to your laptop. Like the Core X, the Core X Chroma uses a clever pull-out tray to make swapping cards easier. Razer says the box actually has two Thunderbolt controllers to maintain the stability of the single connection since it’s handling both data and video signals. You can also charge most laptops — up to 100 watts — through it. An eGPU is the only way to bring a MacBook Pro up to workstation-class specs or to turn a potato Windows laptop, albeit one new enough to have a USB-C/Thunderbolt connection, into a ray-tracing wunderkind. (Well, it takes a lot more than a new GPU to do that, but you get the point.)
