EU Minister Bagis said Turkey would carry even a slightest problem during AEL Limassol FC-Fenerbahce game, to international institutions.

Greek Cypriots know it too, Bagis told AA on Tuesday.

Turkey’s Fenerbahce and Greek Cypriot AEL Limassol FC will play an UEFA Europa League game on October 25 in Greek Cypriot side.

People have concerns regarding AEL Limassol-Fenerbahce game as Turkish teams had faced several difficulties in Greek Cypriot side in the past games, said Bagis, adding, “Greek Cypriots very well know that we don’t hesitate to carry even a slightest problem to international institutions.”

This game is an opportunity for Greek Cypriot administration to prove whether it is a state or not, said Bagis, adding, “because past mistakes show that Greek Cypriots are not even a tribe, let alone a state. Now they have an opportunity.”

Commenting on Fenerbahce’s not being able to go to Cyprus via Ercan Airport in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Bagis said that Fenerbahce could not use the airport as TRNC was not a recognized country by the EU as well as due to UEFA and EU rules.

«Όταν ασχολούνται τα ΜΜΕ μαζί μου, δεν θέλω να το κάνουν για τα προσωπικά μου, αλλά για τη δουλειά μου», δήλωσε ο Πάνος Καλίδης.

Ο τραγουδιστής, καλεσμένος στην εκπομπή της Σταματίνας Τσιμτσιλή, εξήγησε γιατί έχει διατηρήσει ένας χαμηλό προφίλ σε σχέση με την προσωπική του ζωή και την οικογένεια του.

«Όταν βασίζεσαι σε άλλα πράγματα όπως φωνή, εμπειρία, καλούς συνεργάτες και καλή εταιρία, δεν έχεις ανάγκη να στηρίζεσαι στη σύζυγο και στα παιδιά σου ώστε να βγει μια φωτογραφία στα περιοδικά», κατέληξε!

Εύη Αδάμ – Λάμπης Λιβιεράτος: Το τέλος ενός γάμου. Η αρχή μιας νέας ζωής!

Μόλις λίγες ημέρες έχουν περάσει από την συγκλονιστική αποκάλυψη του Λάμπη Λιβιεράτου σχετικά με τον εγκλεισμό του σε ψυχιατρική κλινική και όλα όσα τον οδήγησαν εκεί.

Μετά από 13 χρόνια σχέσης ο Λάμπης Λιβιεράτος και η Εύη Αδάμ πήραν τη απόφαση να γυρίσουν σελίδα και να συνεχίζουν τη ζωή τους από την αρχή.

Όπως αναφέρει δημοσίευμα του Πρώτου Θέματος ο τραγουδιστής είναι πλέον πολύ καλά, έχοντας αφήσει πίσω του τα κακώς κείμενα του παρελθόντος.

Ζει αποκομμένος από τα media και κάθε είδους δημοσιότητα στο σπίτι του Τζώνη Θεοδωρίδη στην Πεντέλη, δείχνοντας να έχει ξεπεράσει όλα εκείνα που τον βασάνιζαν για πολύ καιρό.

Απόλυτα χαλαρός κι έχοντας συνειδητοποιήσει ποιοι ήταν αυτοί που του στάθηκαν και ποιοι εκείνοι που τον «πούλησαν», ζει και πάλι μια φυσιολογική ζωή.

Όπως χαρακτηριστικά αναφέρει το ρεπορτάζ, ο τραγουδιστής ήδη σκέφτεται σοβαρά την επιστροφή του στο τραγούδι αλλά και στις επιχειρήσεις.

«Έχουν πέσει πολλά σχέδια στο τραπέζι. Παρόλο που τίποτα ακόμη δεν φαίνεται οριστικό, και μόνο το ότι ο Λάμπης φαίνεται ανοιχτός σε νέα επαγγελματικά projects λέει πολλά», δηλώνουν οι δικοί του άνθρωποι.

Όσο για την Εύη Αδάμ; Το τελευταίο διάστημα ζει το έρωτα της με τον περιζήτητο dj, Ραμίρο Ρομέρο και από τη στιγμή που έχουν ήδη κατατεθεί τα χαρτιά του διαζυγίου της με τον Λάμπη Λιβιεράτο, κάνει αρκετές δημόσιες εμφανίσεις με τον νέο της σύντροφο, δείχνοντας πως κι εκείνη έχει γυρίσει σελίδα στη προσωπική της ζωή.

Την κατάσταση που επικρατεί στην Ελλάδα σχετικά με την κρίση σχολίασε με τον δικό του τρόπο σε πρόσφατη συνέντευξη του ο Κώστας Βουτσάς.

«Μόνο εάν χυθεί αίμα θα αλλάξει η κατάσταση που επικρατεί στην ελληνική κοινωνία», δήλωσε χαρακτηριστικά στην εκπομπή «Υπάρχει λόγος» και κατέληξε λέγοντας:

«Δεν ξέρω εάν κόσμος θα αφήσει την καλοπέραση και τις ανέσεις που διαθέτει για να βγει να αγωνιστεί με ένταση για αυτά που θα έρθουν».

George Michael Cancels Australia Tour Dates Due To ‘Major Anxiety’

George Michaels Cancels Tour

British singer George Michael has cancelled his tour of Australia due to “major anxiety” brought on by his recent battle with severe pneumonia, he announced on his website.

The former Wham! frontman said that he would complete his Symphonica Tour dates in Britain in October before seeking treatment.

He had been due to open in Australia in Perth on Nov. 10 before performing in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hunter Valley on Dec. 1.

“I have … announced the cancellation of the shows in Australia which breaks my heart,” Michael said in a statement.

The 49-year-old “Careless Whisper” and “Faith” singer fell ill in Vienna last November and was treated under intensive care for a month for a life-threatening illness.

He was forced to postpone his tour but resumed it some 10 months later.

“Since last year’s illness I have tried in vain to work my way through the trauma that the doctors who saved my life warned me I would experience,” Michael said.

“They recommended complete rest … but I’m afraid I believed (wrongly) that making music and getting out there to perform for the audiences that bring me such joy would be therapy enough in itself.”

He said his return to the stage had brought him “great happiness” and that some of his recent performances were his best to date, but concluded:

“I was wrong to think I could work my way through the major anxiety that has plagued me since I left Austria last December.

“All that’s left for me to do is apologise to my wonderful Australian fan base and to promise faithfully that as soon as I completed these shows here in the UK, I will receive the treatment which is so long overdue.”

Tickets to his Australian concerts will be refunded.

Michael has sold an estimated 100 million records over his career, but he has hit headlines in recent years for his personal life more often than for his music.

In 1998 he was arrested in California for “engaging in a lewd act” in a public toilet and has had a string of run-ins with British police for possession of narcotics. He also served a term in jail for driving under the influence of cannabis.

Government to set up foreign land register for agricultural land and Independent senator Nick Xenophon dismissed the plan as “window dressing”

Prime Minister Julia Gillard

THE federal government will introduce a foreign ownership register for agricultural land, Prime Minister Julia Gillard has told farmers.

The register will provide a more comprehensive picture of the specific size and locations of foreign agricultural landholdings.

The prime minister’s announcement at the National Farmers Federation national congress in Canberra on Tuesday was applauded by delegates.

The government shortly will release a paper to begin discussions with stakeholders including farmers, the states and territories about the design and content of the register.

Ms Gillard said she wanted to take the politics out of foreign ownership.

“Foreign investment is not a new thing,” she said.

Just 0.1 per cent of total direct foreign investment is in agriculture, forestry and fishing, while 89 per cent of agricultural land is entirely Australian-owned.

A further six per cent is majority Australian-owned.

That proportion was roughly similar to levels 30 years ago, Ms Gillard said.

A working group that includes Treasury and other government agencies will release a consultation paper soon.

The final design of the register will take into account the need to improve transparency of foreign ownership in agriculture without imposing unnecessary burdens on investors or duplicating work already undertaken by state and territory governments.

Federation president Jock Laurie described the announcement as “fantastic”.

“We have been calling that for a while,” he told reporters, adding there was nothing better than a truly informed debate.

“I think a register will give the community that information.”

Shadow treasurer Joe Hockey welcomed the register, adding it was an idea the coalition had been pushing for months.

“Whether it’s their policy or our policy, I think great transparency in relation to foreign investment in agricultural interests will alleviate a lot of the concerns,” he told reporters in Melbourne.

Mr Hockey urged the government to go further by referring any agricultural land sale valued at more than $15 million to the Foreign Investment Review Board for consideration.

Independent senator Nick Xenophon dismissed the plan as “window dressing”, saying it would not address community concerns about the foreign takeover of Cubbie Station in Queensland.

The controversial sale of Australia’s largest cotton farm to a Chinese-led consortium was finalised after being given the green light by the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB).

Senator Xenophon said he was still concerned by claims made in a Senate estimates hearing last week that an Australian bidder may have been ignored.

“The register will do nothing to answer the questions raised by Australian-owned companies bidding for Cubbie Station who say they haven’t had a fair go in the process,” he said in a statement.

Trade Minister Craig Emerson warned farmers at the National Farmers Federation (NFF) congress on Monday against supporting such action, claiming it would be to their disadvantage.
