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.

Benefits of genetic testing far outweigh the costs | Observer letters
Even if we assess the value of treatment in monetary terms, the investment could be worth it

Mary Warnock is right that consent has to be assumed from the child if genetic modification can avert a serious and often distressing condition (“We need to use gene editing wisely but also embrace its vast potential,”Comment, last week). The test is of whether the procedure is “in the child’s best interest” and, if confined to serious diseases, as Warnock alludes to, then I believe that most appropriately informed parents will agree that it is.

Cost is harder to assess. Not all serious conditions are immediately fatal or life-threatening and the initial expense of testing must be balanced against that of potentially many years of expensive medical care and, quite likely, social support and special educational needs. In addition, the cost of many tests becomes relatively cheaper as they become better established and more readily available.

Billion-dollar polar engineering ‘needed to slow melting glaciers’
Underwater sea walls and artificial islands among projects urgently required to avoid devastation of global flooding, say scientists

Scientists have outlined plans to build a series of mammoth engineering projects in Greenland and Antarctica to help slow down the disintegration of the planet’s main glaciers. The controversial proposals include underwater walls, artificial islands and huge pumping stations that would channel cold water into the bases of glaciers to stop them from melting and sliding into the sea.

The researchers say the work – costing tens of billions of dollars a time – is urgently needed to prevent polar glaciers melting and raising sea levels. That would lead to major inundations of low-lying, densely populated areas, such as parts of Bangladesh, Japan and the Netherlands.

Brain drain of graduates to London leaves cities facing skills shortage
Mayors and businesses call for action on young people quitting regions after completing degrees

Britain’s regions are suffering a “brain drain” to London as about a third of departing graduates head to the capital each year, analysis has revealed. Ministers are under renewed pressure to tackle the stubbornly unbalanced map of Britain’s economy, with warnings that some big cities are left with serious skills shortages.

Higher education data reveals that more than 100,000 of 2016’s graduates had left the region where they studied after just six months to take up work elsewhere. More than 30,000 ended up in London. The study, compiled by WPI Strategy group, found that in the East Midlands 55.5% of graduates left the area to find work shortly after graduating. While large numbers took jobs in London after studying in the south-east, 3,670 went there from the east of England, 3,410 from the south-west and 2,990 from the East Midlands.

Call for delayed Brexit day and longer transition splits MPs
Tories on select committee examining departure from EU issue ‘minority report’ saying putting day of exit back would be a ‘betrayal’

Disagreement over Brexit has split the main parliamentary committee charged with scrutinising the UK’s departure from the EU after a majority of its members concluded that the day of exit may have to be delayed.

The findings of a report out on Sunday by the all-party Brexit select committee also recommends that provision be made to extend the post-Brexit transition period beyond the expected period of 21 months to allow more time for administrative changes and for businesses to adapt. But in a sign of rising tension and division in parliament, a group of Tory MPs on the committee on Sunday denounces these central findings in their own “minority report”, saying that such delays would amount to a betrayal of the will of the British people.

Eighteen British pubs close every day. Here’s how we saved ours | Steven Morris
A £1m campaign to resurrect the Packhorse in South Stoke has brought the village together. Supporters hope it will inspire others

The Packhorse in the village of South Stoke, just south of Bath, was never a smart pub but it was friendly, welcoming and earthy, beloved of locals and visitors alike.

It was the sort of place that didn’t frown if you kept your boots on after a muddy walk along the route of the old Somerset coal canal. Food options tended to be limited to cheese-and-onion rolls and bags of crisps, but that was a charm rather than a flaw. The regulars would always shuffle over to give you a share of the fire on chilly days.
