Mostly for the guys who were out:
Today and yesterday we discussed the idea of you guys bookmarking on your συνδέσεις the International Herald Tribune. You could perhaps even have it as your initial explorer page. This would give you the opportunity to skim through the paper on a daily basis checking out whatever interests you. For example, if you are not going this Xmas to the Maldives maybe you should seriously consider it for next Xmas as the island may disappear if the sea level rise by one meter.
Also, dont forget Google News as it can be helpful even though it defeats the whole purpose of the internal assessment exercise.
