I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Coronavirus live news: Greece suspends rollout of Johnson & Johnson vaccine; EU may not renew AZ contract

Greece halts J&J rollout pending EMA review; commissioner says AstraZeneca only delivered 30m doses of 120m ordered

Canada’s federal government has put childcare and Covid-19 relief at the heart of the country’s first pandemic budget, as the governing Liberals announced massive spending plans in an attempt to address growing inequality – and avert a snap election.

Delivering her government’s first budget in more than two years, the finance minister, Chrystia Freeland, on Monday framed the ambitious spending programme as both necessary to combat the disastrous “economic wounds” of the coronavirus pandemic and an opportunity to build a more equitable society.

Following recommendations of the government’s statutory climate advisors, carbon dioxide is to be cut by 78% by 2035 compared with 1990 levels, the prime minister will say later this week – an increase from the current target of a 68% reduction by 2030.

Biden says he’s willing ‘to compromise’ with Republicans on infrastructure bill – live

Earlier today, White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed criticisms over the Biden Administration’s decision to uphold the level of refugees allowed into the US, set by Trump.

Completely and utterly unacceptable. Biden promised to welcome immigrants, and people voted for him based on that promise.

Upholding the xenophobic and racist policies of the Trump admin, incl the historically low + plummeted refugee cap, is flat out wrong.

Keep your promise. https://t.co/A82xYf1XpR

Still, the news drew immediate criticism and within hours, the White House promised to announce a final, increased number by May 15.

‘The admission of up to 15,000 refugees remains justified by humanitarian concerns and is otherwise in the national interest,’ Mr. Biden wrote in an executive memorandum released Friday. Ms. Psaki said on Monday that the order also said that the cap could be increased in the future”.

As the the jury begins deliberations in Derek Chauvin’s trial for the murder of George Floyd, president Biden is privately planning how best to respond, the Associated Press reports.

Pres. Biden is expected to deliver a statement once the jury renders a verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial, per multiple officials.

No matter the outcome, I'm told it will acknowledge the grief and outrage sparked by George Floyd’s killing and other unarmed Black men by police.

The plans for possible presidential remarks are still fluid, with the timing, venue and nature of the remarks still being considered, in part depending on the timing of the verdict, according to two White House aides who were not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

The White House has been warily watching the trial proceed in Minneapolis — and then another shooting of a Black man by a white police officer last week — and are preparing for the possibility of unrest if a guilty verdict is not reached in the trial. Biden may also speak after a guilty verdict, the White House aides said”.
