Greek tourism players seek to exploit sports tourism enhance the tourist offer and increase income, according to a conference held during the Philoxenia 2022 Tourism Fair the weekend at Thessaloniki.

Tourism policymakers exchanged views at the event “Sports Tourism – Good Practices and Opportunities for Economic and Tourism Development” on Saturday during Philoxenia.

Echo Fragakis on the benefits of hosting sporting events, the Mayor of Thessaloniki Konstantinos Zervas said the northern port city still lags behind in terms of major sports venues, but noted that smaller-scale infrastructure meets the needs of the neighborhood.

Spiros Angelopoulos

Spiros Angelopoulos (1963-2022)

Spiros Peter Angelopoulos, 59, of Garrison died Nov. 13 of pancreatic cancer.

He was born on August 1, 1963 in Montreal, the only child of Peter and Helen Angelopoulos. The family lived in Canada and the Bronx before settling in Ossining, where Spiros grew up. He worked as a stockbroker on the New York Stock Exchange during 9/11 before moving on to other businesses, most recently working as a commercial real estate agent for CR Properties in Poughkeepsie.

Spiros married Anita Hall in 1995 and the family settled in Garrison, what he liked to call “a little piece of heaven” – the river, the woods, a place where friends become family.

Spiros was always available when someone called, volunteered in the Garrison School District, made sets at O’Neill High School, or helped neighbors in need. He loved cars, hockey, airplanes, tennis, fishing, good food and wine and, of course, his family and friends.

Along with his wife and mother, of Tarsina, Corinth, Greece, Spiros is survived by his children, 2nd Lt. (US Army) Alexandra Angelopoulos of Fort Sill, Oklahoma, and Peter Angelopoulos of Garrison; his in-laws, Nancy and Warren Hall of Poughkeepsie; his sister Allison Miller (O’Neal) of Deerfield, Illinois; and his nephews, Wes and Shane Miller of Deerfield.

He is also survived by his aunts and uncles, Ermione Lambos of Queens, and Diamanto and Nick Lymberopoulos, Marina and Vlassi Papapanagiotou and Marika and Stratos Zervos of Greece.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Dec. 16 at St. Basil’s Academy, 79 St. Basil’s Road, Garrison.

Memorial donations can be made to Saint-Basile Academy (sbagoa.org) or the gastroenterology department at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital (nyp.org).

Rosina Parcesepe (1918-2022)

Rosina Parcesepe, 104, died Nov. 4 in Fishkill.

She was born in Morcone, Italy on March 31, 1918, to Salvatore and Pasqualina (Morelli) Rinaldi. She married Mario Parcesepe in 1940 before immigrating to the United States in 1956. They settled in the Parkchester section of the Bronx. While raising her family, Rosina worked as a seamstress at Willow-Form in New York.

After retirement, Rosina and Mario returned to Italy, where they lived for 20 years. While there, Rosina continued to be surrounded by her family in the form of her nephew, Antonio, his wife, Antoinette, and their three sons, Mirko, Michele and Davide, to whom she became the honorary grandmother.

After Mario’s death in 1993, Rosina returned to the United States to live with her daughter, Elvira Giordano, in Cold Spring. Rosina cherished the opportunity to be grandmother to her six grandchildren again and was a devoted great-grandmother to their 10 children, her family said. She attended the Friendship Center in Philipstown and made many friends there.

Rosina was a devout Catholic who often made novenas for those she met. She was a proud volunteer at Mother House Lurana, with the Franciscan Sisters of Atonement in Garrison. Rosina loved to sing and took the microphone at every event. She attributed her longevity to a daily piece of provolone cheese and a glass of fine red wine.

Rosina is survived by her children: Aldo Parcesepe (Helen) of Katonah and Elvira Giordano of Cold Spring. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Joanne Wellington (Thomas), Rosemarie Emory (Robert), Dominic Giordano (Suzanne), Claudia Parcesepe (David), Angela Parcesepe (Rachel) and Sara Parcesepe (Jeff); 10 great-grandchildren: Kristin, Irini, Lauren, Erin, David, Dominic, Anthony, Brian, David and Elio; and a great-great-granddaughter, Enza.

He was born on November 14, 1963 in Cold Spring, the son of Richard and Mary (Giachinta) Pidala.

After his mother’s death, Mark became a resident of ARC, where he enjoyed dancing, attending workshops, interacting with other residents, and going to amusement parks.

Mark enjoyed collecting hats and looking at magazines. If he walked around your house, he would look for magazines and hats he could take, his family said. If he found any, they became his! Mark always wore hats, sometimes two or three at a time. Mickey Mouse was his favorite Disney character.

Richard Scully

Richard Scully

Richard Scully (1924-2022)

Richard Thorne Scully, 98, a longtime Garrison resident, died Oct. 25.

Born on April 15, 1924 in New York, he was the son of Raymond Scully and Ellen Kiely Richard. He was a man of the world, endowed with intelligence and wit, his family said. He was a lover of classical music, animals and nature, and was singularly unimpressed with pretentiousness or the trappings of success.

Richard was a Harvard-educated international tax lawyer for Aramco and Phillips Petroleum, in Saudi Arabia, London and New York. In Saudi Arabia, he brewed liquor from a pot still (which he later used to make maple syrup with his daughter Caroline in rural New York state) for the rowdy parties he and his wife have staged on their boat, an Arabian dhow, the Nefertiti, on Half Moon Bay in the Persian Gulf.

They laughed (after the fact) that they were once chased for hours by Saudi authorities through the desert in a jeep as they bypassed a border outpost on their return from the United Arab Emirates.

He served the country as a lieutenant in the US Air Force during World War II, first as a meteorologist and then as a navigator on a B-24 bomber, guiding the plane by reading maps and stars.

When his father died in infancy, his bohemian and adventurous mother moved with him and his ailing brother to France, first to Paris and then to Six-Fours-les-Plages in the south. After moving back to New York when he was 6, they lived in Gramercy Park and he attended Little Red Schoolhouse and later Friends Seminary, where he made lifelong friends.

Richard met his wife, Bernice, while he was at Harvard Law School and she was working on a study at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was participating. After a camping adventure in the Maine woods together, they married soon after and settled in New York.

Still after the adventure, a few years later they moved to Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where he worked for Aramco for seven years and they had their first child, Caroline. They then returned to New York, where their son, Richard Alan, was born.

Richard’s urge to explore the world finally resurfaced. After he and Bernice lovingly restored “Rock-Hurst”, a dilapidated Victorian house in Garrison, they moved the family to London. While there, the family traveled to the New Forest on camping trips, navigated the winding streets to attend football matches and rock concerts, and took road trips across the UK and Europe.

Eventually, in 1978, they returned to Garrison, where Richard volunteered with the Ambulance Corps and the Audubon Society, and tried his hand at options trading. Finally, Richard and Bernice moved to Washington DC in the 1990s where Richard pursued residential real estate development.

Richard is survived by his children, Richard Alan Scully and Caroline Scully (Jim Niedbalski), and his grandchildren, Madeleine, Beckett and Bridget Scully.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, November 19 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Philip’s Church, 1101 Route 9D, Garrison, followed by interment in the church cemetery.

Sue Tudor

Sue Tudor

Sue Tudor (1940-2022)

Sue H. Tudor, 82, died Nov. 14.

She was born in Peekskill on May 23, 1940, the son of Francis and Susanna (Kelly) Hughes. After graduating from Peekskill High School, Sue became a cornerstone of what was once known as Peekskill Community Hospital (now NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital) and recognized for her 45 years of service.

The caption in her 1958 yearbook held true then and throughout her life: “Miss Livewire, high spirits, school spirit to spare.” Laughs.

She met her future husband, Derek Tudor, at Joe’s gas station downstairs from her house. They married on April 23, 1960.

Sue gained an appreciation for antiques, coronation pieces and jewelry while working for O. Rundle Gilbert auctioneers in her “spare time”, often claiming that she spent more than she was paid.

She enjoyed talking to people and being involved in the community, her family said. She has been active with the Garrison Volunteer Fire Co. Auxiliary and the Garrison Volunteer Ambulance Corps, as a treasurer/customer. Being a poll watcher for the election was a wonderful place for her to reconnect with friends and neighbors. It was almost impossible to go out with her and not run into people she knew, even on vacation in England.

Sue is survived by her children, Derek Tudor, Gilbert Steedley and Rodney Tudor (Kristi); his grandchildren, Victoria Cole (Tom), Derek Tudor, Amir Daniels and Jessica Tudor; and his great-grandchildren, Madison Cole, Wyatt Cole and Isabelle Cole. She is also survived by her sisters, Maureen Turner and Lorraine Koverda, and her sisters-in-law, Joan Hughes and Margaret Ann Hughes.

A Christian burial mass was offered on November 18 at Assumption Church in Peekskill, followed by interment at Assumption Cemetery at Cortlandt Manor.

Chinese, Turkish and Russian investors benefited the most from Greece Golden Visa Programsaid the Minister for Migration and Asylum Notis Mitarachi this week, with a keen interest in real estate in Penthouse.

The Greek scheme, which currently grants five-year residency rights and access to the EU for a minimum investment of €250,000 in Greek real estate, is the first investment residency program in Europe based on demand growth in the first half of 2022, according to a report published by real estate brokers Tranio.

Based on ministry data through August 2022, other investors operating the Greek program are from Egypt and Lebanon.

The Greek government has for some time considered increasing the minimum investment requirement for obtaining an investor visa. Earlier this year, the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced its intention to increase the requirement from 250,000 euros to 500,000 euros and now plans are to do so for specific areas in Athens and the wider Attica region including Paleo Faliro, Alimos, Elliniko, Glyfada, Voula, Vari, Marousi, Kifissia, Melissia, Vrillisia, Dionysos and Ekali – all areas where infrastructure projects have been completed or are in progress as The Ellinikon.

According to reports, in other suburbs of Attica, the requirement will remain at 250,000 euros.

The matter is still open for discussion with the Real Estate Federation OMASE arguing that by increasing the golden visa requirement, “Greece loses its competitive advantage as an investment center compared to other countries in the European Union”.

As an indication of the risk, OMASE cites data according to which golden visa applications fell by 544 in the first half of 2022 from 9,619 in January to 9,075 in June 2022, the first decline since the program launched in 2014.

In total in 2021, Greece issued 1,035 new investor visas marking a 10.3% increase compared to 2020 to reach a total of 9,619 in H1 2022.

When we read about financial headwinds, soaring inflation due to rising energy prices and a looming recession on the horizon, it should be noted that not all international markets are in turmoil.


Greece and Portugal have reduced their public deficits by more than half and are less exposed than most European countries to gas supply shocks from Russia. Greece is being boosted by a recovery in foreign investment – ​​and tourism, which Covid had reduced by 20-15% of its gross domestic product. Less than 10% of bank loans are non-performing, compared to 50% during the crisis.


With growth of over 4% and inflation falling rapidly, Greece is experiencing one of the strongest recoveries in the region. Portugal is in a similar place. It is investing EU support funds wisely and reforming one of the continent’s most overly generous pension systems. It is perhaps no coincidence that the best performing stock market in the developed world this year is Lisbon. These countries have also been two of the most successful in Europe in developing their Golden Visa programs, attracting a wave of wealthy new emigrants.


A Golden Visa refers to the immigration program that allows wealthy individuals to obtain residency, or even citizenship, in another country simply by purchasing property or making a relatively large investment or donation. Different countries have different investment options, which range from $250,000 to millions.


If you make the required investment and apply for a Golden Visa, you and your family members will become legal residents of that country. You can live there, go to school and have access to health care, as well as many other resident benefits.


Portugal is now considered a high-end tourist and real estate location, as well as one of the main countries in the EU for research and new technologies. Growing housing and rental prices, booming tourist numbers complemented by a stable political and social environment, a modern education system, a highly skilled and fluent English-speaking workforce, and excellent quality of life.


Portugal occupies the sixth position in the ranking of countries with the highest percentage of female entrepreneurs, ahead of countries such as Spain, Italy or Ireland. Women are navigating their way to the top of the business ladder, and investment migration can help them take their success to the global stage.


Residential properties in the most popular areas such as Lisbon or Porto are no longer eligible for the Golden Visa with the aim of supporting local investment. However, commercial properties are still eligible, leading to increased global demand. Residential and commercial units in the islands of Madeira and the Azores are also eligible for the Golden Visa.


According to JLL Portugal, one of our member firms familiar with Golden Visa investment opportunities, real estate on Madeira Island has seen capital appreciation of over 7% per year, and being a tourist hotspot , it has great return potential on rentals . Portugal also offers the added benefit of a coveted European passport after five years of residence.

Greece recently announced that it will double the minimum investment amount required to purchase a Golden Visa property from €250,000 to €500,000. In this way, an attempt will be made to increase the stock of real estate available for purchase by local buyers. However, the appetite for an extended summer in the South Aegean is far from over for international investors, and Greek investment tourism is heading for a bumper year.


Helped by the country’s strict handling of the pandemic (and well-staffed airports), international tourism revenues are expected to surpass 2019’s record highs, with Britons and Germans spending more there in the first six months. month of 2022 than during the same period. of 2019.


While many visitors flock to hedonistic Mykonos or the shores of pin-up Santorini, neighboring Paros quietly attracts those who prefer to escape the crowds and high prices. They are also building a new smart city, The Ellinikon, on the Athens coast, which is expected to attract 1 million tourists a year.


There are other EU countries offering similar programs including Italy, Cyprus, Latvia and Luxembourg and more than 20 territories around the world, from Hong Kong to Australia. It will be interesting to see if they can balance global investment potential with a strong local economy like Greece and Portugal have, aided in particular by their stunning islands, natural landscapes and wild beaches.

ATHENS – The real estate market in Greece is at the center of European and global investment interest, according to participants at the annual Prodexpo conference in Athens which was held on October 24-25.

Despite global challenges, the property market is showing exceptional resilience in Greece, providing opportunities for investors in properties ranging from homes, offices, storage areas to land for commercial or entertainment purposes, according to the global image presented at the exhibition.

In particular, foreign nationals are looking to buy private properties in Greece, with the most popular areas of interest being Athens, the Cyclades islands and the Chalkidiki peninsula in northern Greece.

According to Spitogatos Insights, a fifth of all searches on its rental and sales platform come from abroad, with German nationals leading the search for properties across Greece. German interest is focused on mainland Greece, particularly Thessaloniki and Chalkidiki. They are followed by American nationals – Americans and Greeks from the diaspora – who want to buy summer residences in expensive areas such as the Cyclades and the southern suburbs of Athens. British citizens are the third nationals looking for homes to buy, but their demographics also represent Greeks living in the UK; they are interested in the center of Athens, the northern and southern suburbs and the Cyclades.

In addition to the Germans, Americans and British, interest was expressed by the Spaniards, Cypriots and French; the French in particular are interested in buying houses in the Cyclades, especially the island of Paros and the center of Athens. Bulgarians are interested in cheaper property in Kavala and Chalkidiki in northern Greece, while Israelis have emerged as major first-time buyers, with growing interest in central Athens, the northern and southern suburbs and the Cyclades.

Prodexpo attendees, who represented international hotel chains and real estate agents, also saw strong demand for city properties from digital nomads and students, but offers are limited as many properties need upgrading.

KALAMATA, Greece (AP) — Greece on Friday launched operations of a new international pilot training center created in partnership with Israel, as it tries to capitalize on its relative airpower advantage over its rival. regional, Turkey.

Israeli defense firm Elbit, which finalized a $1.65 billion deal with the Israeli-backed Greek government last year, will help run the facility at an Israeli army base. outside the city of Kalamata in southern Greece.

Greece is undertaking an armed forces modernization program largely focused on its air force, as it hopes to overtake Turkey. Athens is acquiring advanced French-built Rafale jets, modernizing its aging fleet of F-16 fighter jets and seeking to join the United States’ F-35 aircraft program.

Turkey was excluded from the F-35 program after its purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense system.

NATO members Greece and Turkey remain at odds over maritime borders and the military presence on the eastern Greek islands that Ankara maintains violates international treaties.

The new training center began operating on Friday with 14 of the planned 25 T-6 single-engine turboprop aircraft. The fleet is expected to expand next year with the delivery of 19 Italian-made M-346 trainers equipped with onboard virtual avionics that simulate combat and flight scenarios.

Although the flight school officially opened on Friday, it won’t be fully operational until early 2024, Elbit officials said.

Major General Georgios Vagenas, commander of the Greek Air Force Training Command, said the T-6 aircraft would provide 7,000 hours of flight training per year, while the M jets -346 would provide 3,500 hours.

“These facilities will prepare fighter squadrons for the generation of fighter aircraft that the Air Force has recently acquired,” Vagenas said. “This will be the primary mechanism to counter threats…coming from our neighbor to the east.”

Why have the All Blacks never campaigned against domestic violence? http://greekhomes.info/why-have-the-all-blacks-never-campaigned-against-domestic-violence/ Wed, 19 Oct 2022 03:11:09 +0000 http://greekhomes.info/why-have-the-all-blacks-never-campaigned-against-domestic-violence/ In a five-year-old episode of Alice Snedden’s Bad News, the comedian finally gets the chance to ask NZ Rugby some questions.

In a five-year-old episode of Alice Snedden’s Bad News, the comedian finally gets the chance to ask NZ Rugby some questions.

Rugby is our national sport, a beloved blood sport that makes heroes of all who don the black jersey to represent our nation. But if the All Blacks are such a powerful cultural institution in Aotearoa, why have they never campaigned against domestic violence? Five years have passed since the New Zealand Rugby Respect and Responsibility Review, so what has changed?

In the latest episode of Alice Snedden’s Bad News, Snedden looks back on the litany of scandals that have plagued rugby over the past decade and asks how has rugby become so entwined with toxic masculinity? As former Premier League player and comedian Joe Daymond explains, it was in him when he was young. “Especially if you go to an all-boys school, the only time you interact with women is when you’re pissing after a game.”

“It was scary when that was a prospect for guys who had been doing this for four years in high school, imagine guys who are professional rugby players doing this for 20 years?”

New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson said the respect and responsibility review reflected rugby and revealed how they could improve their cultural environment. The past two years have seen resource cuts thanks to Covid-19 which have delayed some of the changes, but Robinson insists progress is being made. “It’s certainly not completely forgotten, it’s an area that we really want to get back on our feet.”

Criminologist Dr Lynzi Armstrong says there has been a “culture of silence” around rugby for decades. “We cannot consider this culture of silence as related to spectators, but we can also consider it as related to organizations.” Then, in a sequence that has to be seen to be believed, Snedden reveals what happened the first time she attempted to do this episode of Bad News, in 2018.
