Jason Poole is a Nashville, Tenn.-based travel agent, who specializes in cruises and European travel. My travel agent always told me she thought I would be great at it and after turning her down many times, I joined her team. Now people are searching for great travel agents – especially those with authorityWhen I started out, I often had to convince people of the benefits of using a travel agent. I'd tell people at cocktail parties that I was a travel agent, and always get the same response: 'They're still around?' People thought since they could book things on the internet, they didn't need a travel agent.

So much so, the European Union is regularly checking devices. Investigations into spyware should now “involve a check of the phones of all politicians and top level officials,” Sophie in ’t Veld, the chairwoman of the European Parliament’s special committee on spyware, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “To get a full picture of the spying activity by governments.”Greece has now vaulted to the top of the worry list. Allies of Mr. Mitsotakis, a staunch defender of Ukraine, have argued that the scandal is not just a threat to Greek stability, but to the common cause against Russia. While he stressed he was not blaming Russia for the hacking, he added that Russia had exerted influence in Greece before, “So if they did it in the past.

A view shows burning trees, as wildfires continue to spread in the Gironde region of southwestern France, August 11, 2022. REUTERS/Stephane MaheSAINT-MAGNE, France, Aug 11 (Reuters) - High temperatures and a worsening drought brought a high risk of new fires breaking out in southwestern France, officials said on Friday, even after an overnight reprieve held a monster wildfire that has been raging for days in check. The risk of new fires is "very severe" considering the weather conditions, the Gironde prefecture said. Temperatures as high as 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) were expected in the southwest, with high temperatures also expected across much of France, France's official weather forecast Meteo France said. The heatwave - officially France's third this summer - was set to ebb on Saturday and end on Sunday with storms, it said.

A woman says a stranger drove her family from Seattle to Vancouver after their flight was canceled. In an interview with Canadian news outlet Daily Hive Urbanized, Smith said: "The lineup at the airport was just all the way down the aisle. An Air Canada spokesperson told Daily Hive Urbanized that the flight was canceled because the third-party provider that operates the airline's flights from Seattle didn't have enough staff. Air Canada did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment made outside of normal working hours. One passenger told Insider that Air Canada lost her dress when she flew to Greece for sister's wedding and then delayed her return home by more than 24 hours.

Europe is racing to set up floating units to handle imports of liquefied natural gas, as it tries to resolve an energy crisis. Offshore LNG units are headed to Finland and Italy in 2022, among the 25 due to arrive in Europe in coming years. The situation has sent European prices for natural gas soaring, and Dutch TTF natural gas futures have risen over 600% in a year, according to ICE Exchange data. Italy plans four floating gas import terminals in total, while Greece is aiming for five, according to S&P Global.

The Liberian-flagged oil tanker Ice Energy transfers crude oil from the Iranian-flagged oil tanker Lana (former Pegas), off the shore of Karystos, on the Island of Evia, Greece, May 26, 2022. REUTERS/Costas Baltas/File PhotoATHENS, Aug 12 (Reuters) - An Iranian-flagged tanker is reloading oil that was confiscated by the United States earlier this year after Greek authorities approved the release of the cargo, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday. The case has strained relations between Athens and Tehran amid growing tensions between Iran and the United States after Washington hired a tanker in April to impound the oil onboard the Lana tanker, which had been anchored off Greece. The removal of oil from the Lana, formerly the Pegas, prompted Iranian forces in May to seize two Greek tankers in the Middle East Gulf, which have not yet been released. "Instead, this decision by the Greek courts tells Iran that there are no repercussions for its hijacking of tankers," Jungman told Reuters.

Heatwaves, floods and crumbling glaciers in recent weeks have heightened concerns over climate change and the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather across the globe. CLIMATE CHANGE RISKSWith successive heatwaves baking Europe this summer, bringing record temperatures and unprecedented droughts, renewed focus has been placed on climate change risks to farming, industry and livelihoods. In Spain, electrical storms triggered new wildfires and hundreds of people were evacuated from the path of one blaze in the province of Caceres. Macron's office said extra fire-fighting aircraft were arriving from Greece and Sweden, while Germany, Austria, Romania and Poland were all deploying firefighters to help tackle wildfires in France.

REUTERS/Thomas Peter/File PhotoVILNIUS, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Latvia and Estonia have withdrawn from a cooperation framework between China and over a dozen Central and Eastern European countries on Thursday, following in the footsteps of Lithuania which withdrew last May. The move comes during Western criticism towards China for escalating military pressure on Taiwan, a democratically-ruled island that China claims as its own territory. The Chinese embassies in Riga, Latvia and Tallinn, Estonia did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The European Union regards China as a strategic rival in some areas, but seeks to encourage Beijing to reform trade rules at the World Trade Organization.

Greek president calls for investigation of wiretapping scandal

Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou called on Tuesday for an investigation into the tapping of a political leader’s phone by the intelligence service (EYP). The scandal broke last week amid growing concern in the European Union about the use of spyware software and sparked uproar at home, with opposition parties labelling the revelations Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’s personal Watergate. In a statement, Sakellaropoulou said that protecting the right to privacy was “a fundamental condition of a democratic and liberal society” and that the respect of democracy transcends politics. “It requires the immediate and full clarification of the wiretapping case,” she said. Earlier that day, EYP’s chief and Mitsotakis’s chief of staff were sacked.

ATHENS, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Greece will exit the European Union's so-called enhanced surveillance framework on August 20, its finance minister said on Wednesday, a move that will allow the country greater freedom in making economic policy. "After 12 years ... a difficult chapter for our country comes to a close," said the minister, Christos Staikouras. "Greece returns to a European normality and will no longer be an exception in the euro zone." Greece's emergence from enhanced surveillance will mean more degrees of freedom in implementing economic policy and will bring closer the country's goal to regain the "investment grade" status, Staikouras said. The surveillance framework had been intended to ensure the continued adoption of measures to tackle potential sources of economic difficulty and structural reforms to support sustainable economic growth.

HOSTENS, France, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Wildfires tore through the Gironde region of southwestern France on Wednesday, destroying homes and forcing the evacuation of 10,000 residents, some of whom had clambered onto rooftops as the flames got closer. Dozens of wildfires are ablaze across the country, including at least eight major ones. Even so, some Hostens residents were reluctant to abandon their homes. The Gironde was hit by major wildfires in July which destroyed more than 20,000 hectares of forest and temporarily forced almost 40,000 people from their homes. In the Maine et Loire department in western France, more than 1,200 hectares have been scorched by another fire.

Presidential Press Office/Handout via REUTERSISTANBUL, Aug 9 (Reuters) - Turkey resumed its hydrocarbon drilling operations in the eastern Mediterranean on Tuesday after a two year hiatus, though President Tayyip Erdogan said its new drill ship would operate outside waters also claimed by Cyprus. The Abdulhamid Han, Turkey's fourth drill ship, will operate 55 kilometres off the Gazipasa region in the southern coastal province of Antalya, Erdogan said. We do not need to receive permission or consent from anyone for this," he said, speaking at a ceremony to launch the ship in Turkey's coastal Mersin province. Turkey has not sent a drill ship to the eastern Mediterranean since the withdrawal of the Yavuz drill ship from contested waters in September 2020.

Brokers in France, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are seeing jumps in interest from overseas buyers. Demand from international homebuyers has increased across Europe, brokers said in an August 3 market report from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. France, Italy, Greece, and Portugal are capturing the most attention from US buyers, according to a 2022 report from Sotheby's International Realty. Sotheby's told Bloomberg that Americans were responsible for 12% of the brokerage's Italian real-estate purchases in the first quarter. Greece and Portugal, for example, make it fairly easy for Americans — or residents of any nation — to settle into the country via its "golden-visa" programs.

Leaders of 15 low-lying Pacific island nations declared climate change their "single greatest existential threat" at a mid-July summit in Fiji's capital, Suva. REUTERS/Loren ElliottBRUSSELS, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Tensions are mounting ahead of this year's U.N. climate summit, as vulnerable countries ramp up demands for rich countries to pay compensation for losses inflicted on the world’s poorest people by climate change. But now rich countries are being affected as well," said Saleemul Huq, an adviser to the Climate Vulnerable Forum group of 55 countries. Wealthy countries also failed to deliver a promise for $100 billion a year by 2020 to help poor countries lower emissions and prepare for climate change. It means put your hand in your pocket and bring out a dollar, a euro, a yen and put it on the table for the victims of climate change," Huq said.

The public hasn't always been in favor of the project. "When it started it faced a lot of criticism because big deals in Greece, especially before the [debt] crisis, were criticized that something suspicious was behind it," Athanasiou told Insider. Xinhua News Agency/Getty ImagesIn late 2014, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras renegotiated Lamda's contract to require more public open space in the development, the Greek Reporter said. The project also faced political backlash and concerns over potential archeological finds at the site. "It took many years for things to develop because of the Greek public administration," he told Insider in July, adding that he thinks public opinion has come around.

STATE RESPONSESIn 2022, responses to rising food, oil and utility prices in the United States, Europe and emerging markets are all rooted in the same millennia-old traditions. In every case, shortages of food and energy have a price as well as a physical component. If food and energy are unaffordable for ordinary households and businesses, it doesn't matter if they are still physically available. RATIONING AND SUBSIDYPrices and market mechanisms will almost always ensure food and energy remain available for households and businesses with sufficient financial resources to pay. For reasons of social equity as well as political stability, governments usually seek to modify the price-based distribution of food and fuel.

Wildfires in Europe burn second-biggest area on record
  + stars: | 2022-08-04 | by ( Kate Abnett | )   time to read: +2 min
A dozen European countries have suffered major blazes this year, forcing thousands to evacuate and destroying homes and businesses. Wildfires have burned 600,731 hectares in EU countries this year so far, the data showed. Climate change is exacerbating fires, by increasing the hot and dry conditions that help them spread faster, burn longer and rage more intensely. The JRC data covers wildfires bigger than 30 hectares, so if smaller fires were included the total burned would be even higher. But without steep cuts to the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change, scientists concur that heatwaves, wildfires and other climate impacts will worsen significantly.

Spain is putting temperature limits on public air conditioning this summer. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez last week urged office workers to remove their ties to save energy on air conditioning, The Guardian reported. Summers in Spain can be hot, with temperatures typically over 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius). Last month, the city of Pamplona in northern Spain reported a record-breaking 108.14 degrees Fahrenheit (42.3 degrees Celsius) during a continent-wide heat wave. Similarly, Greece has also implemented measures that include setting air conditioners to a minimum of 81 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, and using more window shields in public buildings, Bloomberg reported.
