New night time lighting design begins on Acropolis

This is the first of a series of projects to upgrade the Acropolis' infrastructure that are both funded and implemented by the Onassis Foundation.


The new design reduces light pollution and better showcases the structure through subtle lighting changes to intensify the "three dimensional" aspects of the buildings. Story at MSN News [English] and at Eleftherostypos [Greek]

American base in Greece to be expanded

The Hershel “Woody” Williams, a Expeditionary Sea Base ship, is assigned to the U.S. Africa Command and is not the kind of vessel that might intervene in a high-intensity conflict, should rising strains between Turkey and Greece — two NATO allies — boil over. But its deployment at Souda Bay, a joint U.S.-Greek base near where Turkey earlier this year sent survey and drilling ships to search for gas, could serve as a symbolic warning of America’s growing irritation with Ankara. The dispute with Turkey — along with how to resolve it — was chief among the priorities of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis of Greece following a series of meetings and tours at Souda Bay on Tuesday with the American secretary of state, Mike Pompeo.

NY Times headline says the base is near "disputed territory" but a look at a map of Western Crete shows that's not the case, and the article later indicates the base at Souda is near the maritime sea areas that Turkey has been exploring. The NY Times writer doesn't stress that the USS Hershel "Woody" Williams isn't a military craft, and has a partially civilian crew, it is instead an infrastructure ship, this indicates that significant building will be happening.
