Τρόφιμα που έχουν περάσει από microwave μπορεί, να είναι πιο θρεπτικά από όσο νομίζετε

Image
Κατά καιρούς πολλοί είναι εκείνοι που έχουν ασχοληθεί με το αν ο φούρνος μικροκυμάτων επηρεάζει τα θρεπτικά συστατικά που έχουν τα τρόφιμα, αλλά οι επιστήμονες έχουν καταλήξει στο συμπέρασμα ότι τα τρόφιμα που έχουν περάσει από τον φούρνο μικροκυμάτων μπορεί, στην πραγματικότητα, να είναι πιο θρεπτικά από όσο νομίζετε.

Τι συμβαίνει τελικά στα φαγητά όταν μπαίνουν στο microwave;
Έχουν ακουστεί πολλά και διάφορα για αυτή τη μέθοδο! Τι ισχύει στην πραγματικότητα;

«Γενικά, το ζέσταμα στον φούρνο μικροκυμάτων καταστρέφει πολύ λιγότερα συστατικά από αυτά που καταστρέφονται κατά το βράσιμο ή το τηγάνισμα», αναφέρει ο Δρ. Guy Crosby, καθηγητής διατροφολογίας στο Χάρβαρντ.

Πρόκειται για μία στεγνή μέθοδο, η οποία λόγω ότι είναι πολύ γρήγορη, δεν αφήνει περιθώριο στα θρεπτικά στοιχεία να έρθουν σε μεγάλη επαφή με τη ζέστη.

Είτε με φούρνο μικροκυμάτων, είτε με κάποιον άλλο τρόπο, όταν μαγειρεύετε το φαγητό μπορεί να χάσει κάποια από τα θρεπτικά στοιχεία που είναι ευαίσθητα στη ζέστη, όπως η βιταμ…

Russia has gained a military foothold in Europe after Vladimir Putin signed a controversial deal with Cyprus to dock warships there.

British MPs said Nicosia’s decision to let the Russian navy, including heavily armed frigates, use its ports for counter-terrorism and anti-piracy was ‘worrying and disappointing’.

Cypriot property mis – selling cases in UK court

Cypriot property mis – selling cases in UK court

UK victims of alleged mortgage and property mis-selling in Cyprus are anxiously awaiting an imminent decision of the High Court as to whether their cases can be determined in the English Courts.

The cases are being brought by hundreds of UK mis-selling victims against Alpha Bank Cyprus and numerous Cypriot property developers, agents and lawyers.

The issue is whether the English Courts have jurisdiction to determine such claims. The challenge is brought by Alpha Bank, one of the banks accused of mis-selling mortgages.

Alpha Bank and other Cypriot banks have a substantial interest in the cases being heard in Cyprus for various legal and tactical reasons.  Alpha Bank’s application is to be heard in the High Court in London, starting today.

An estimated 15,000 UK residents have succumbed to glossy advertising and sales talk, buying Cypriot properties off-plan.

Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot building contractors join forces for reconstruction

Image
Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot contractors join forces to participate in the reconstruction of the island in the event of a settlement to the problem of Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

Addressing an annual general meeting of the Cyprus Federation of Associations of Building Contractors, Marios Roushias, the Federation Chairman, said Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot contractors have signed a memorandum of understanding stipulating that both federations will work together for resolving the issues concerning constructions and to promote cooperation so that the economic activity emanating from the reconstruction will benefit Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots alike.

The memorandum comes in the midst of a renewed UN-led effort for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

“We demand that we, the Cypriots ourselves,rebuild Cyprus and not foreigners on our behalf,” Roushias said.

Along the same lines, President of the Turkish Cypriot Association of Building Contractors, Cafe…

THE FAMAGUSTA ECOCITY PROJECT in Cyprus

S U S T A I N A B I L I T Y  +  P E R M A C U L T U R E  +  P E A C E   M E D I A T I O N

Any reopening of Varosha, if and when that occurs, presents a unique opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the past and rebuild for a better future. Yet it comes with significant risks. Without careful planning, it could become just another unsustainable development in an already crowded Mediterranean tourism market, while cementing Famagusta as the second divided city in Cyprus.

Rebuilding Varosha in the context of a model ecopolis promotes peaceful coexistence amongst all of Famagusta’s inhabitants, embraces the latest eco­city technologies and thereby becomes a center for peace and sustainability within a troubled region. The Famagusta Ecocity Project aims to ultimately turn all of Famagusta into Europe’s model Ecocity.   The project will be a multi-track approach to environmental sustainability, economic prosperity and peace building.  Those involved will be local and international archi…

UK beaches good, but Europe's cleanest are in Cyprus and Malta, survey finds

Coastal water quality around Britain remain below its best and summer floods could pour overflowing sewage into seas

The time to go swimming from British beaches was last year. The quality of bathing water around the UK coast improved markedly in 2013, after suffering a steep decline in 2012, because of the poor weather and floods that summer.

This year's water quality, while likely to be good across much of the country, could still be affected in some places if summer floods return. Floods can overwhelm sewage systems, causing outflow to rivers that reach and contaminate coastal waters. That was exacerbated in 2012 because the wet weather followed a long period of drought, which had left drying out sewage back in pipes, which was then discharged as the heavy rain fell.

But the beach water quality analysis, published annually by the European Environment Agency, only collates information on bacteria that indicates pollution from sewage or livestock. It does not take account of bea…

Can eco-city plans bring Cypriot ghost town back to life?

(CNN) -- In 1974 the Mediterranean island of Cyprus was divided in two.

A coup backed by the Greek government was met with a Turkish military invasion, partitioning the country between the Turkish-Cypriot north and Greek-Cypriot south.
One of the most enduring symbols of the divide remains the resort of Varosha, an abandoned district of the ancient city of Famagusta that has come to act as a no-man's-land between north and south.
Controlled by the Turkish military, the area's glistening beaches and apartment blocks remain off-limits to non-military personnel.

At its peak, Varosha had 25,000 residents and 12,000 hotel rooms, attracting guests from across Europe and the Middle East.

Vice President Biden visit in Cyprus

Remarks by Vice President Joe Biden at an Official Lunch with President Nicos Anastasiades of Cyprus
Presidential Palace - Cyprus

VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN:  Your Beatitude; Mr. President; distinguished leaders.  Let me begin by saying a simple thank you.  Thank you for the hospitality that's been extended to me and my wife, Jill.  And it's been so warm a welcome to this beautiful island.  I've been waiting over 40 years to come to Cyprus, and it has not disappointed -- the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Crossroads of Civilization, and I might add, a genuine strategic partner to the United States of America.

I am known in Washington as the White House optimist, as if I am the new guy on the block.  The fact I've been there longer than all the rest does not dim my optimism.  The fact of the matter is that it's a natural that my …

Does Cyprus Hold The Key To Europe's Energy Woes?

Image
Seizing on concerns about the impact of a possible halt in Russian gas through Ukraine, Cyprus’s leadership are boasting about the island nation’s energy potential from Nicosia to Berlin. Speaking to reporters in Berlin last week, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades suggested that the country’s recent gas discoveries could help provide an alternative to those European countries most dependent on Russian natural gas.

“Cyprus should be developed into an energy centre that helps to reduce other dependencies,” Anastasiades told Reuters following a meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Following a 2009 pipeline closure over a price dispute between Ukraine and Russia, Brussels has made a concerted effort to diversify natural gas import options for Europe, including increasing cooperation with North African suppliers, encouraging renewable alternatives and pushing for investment for the region’s interconnectors. Despite easing dependence on Russian natural gas from 45 to 30 percent in t…

European court orders Turkey to pay Cyprus over invasion

Image
Ruling by Europe's top human rights court for 90 million euros in damages is its largest judgment ever.

Europe's top human rights court in its largest ever judgment ordered Turkey on Monday to pay 90 million euros ($123 million) to Cyprus for its 1974 invasion and the island's subsequent division.

The decision from the European Court of Human Rights said the passage of time did not erase Turkey's responsibility in the case, ruling that Turkey must pay 30 million euros in damages to relatives of those missing in the operations and 60 million euros for "the enclaved Greek-Cypriot residents of the Karpas peninsula."

Hundreds of Greek Cypriots still live in the Karpas peninsula in the northernmost tip of the breakaway Turkish Cypriot part of the island.

Cyprus: I'm Obsessed and You Would Be Too!

I'd like to apologize to everyone who has ever asked me for a recommendation on where to go. You see, I hadn't been to Cyprus, and surely, the answer should almost always be Cyprus.

Known by young Europeans as the sister to Ibiza, the island of Cyprus is a popular paradise to visitors from the UK, Scandinavia, Germany, Greece, Russia, and Italy. An escape for warm beaches, gastronomy, entertainment, and culture -- it's the go to destination of the Mediterranean. Although it lacks the inter-continental glory of Ibiza, the little sister island is all worthy of praise.

Alas, five reasons I'll be back to Cyprus -- more than once:

1. It provides either peace or party (or both!), per your request.

Uptown World - Sándor Kenyeres, on the Antara Palace Wellness and Destination Spa Polis Cyprus

Image
Sándor Kenyeres, founder and president of Antara Palace, describes his inspiration for investing in this upscale project as being, simply and singularly, Cyprus.

Kenyeres is convinced that, as an island of unrivalled natural beauty, Cyprus can be transformed into an uptown world for white-collar travellers and High Net Worth Individuals seeking refuge and relaxation.

And with Antara serving as the epicentre of this activity, success is the only option.
What was your inspiration for pursuing this luxury project in Cyprus?

Cyprus is blessed with the highest number of sunny days in Europe – the perfect climate – and is easily reachable from most European countries, as well as from the Middle East, yet it is still somewhat secluded.

Cypriot negotiators meet with FW De Klerk

Τhe Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot negotiators continued their contacts in South Africa yesterday with a meeting on Monday, in Cape Town, with former President of South Africa and Nobel Peace Prize winner, FW De Klerk.

According to a message by Greek Cypriot negotiator, Andreas Mavroyiannis, on his twitter, De Klerk gave “a moving account on crucial moments where one has to live up to historic responsibility for the future of the country.”

The negotiators also met this morning with the national intelligence chief, Moe Shaik, on the role of intelligence and integration of agencies in South Africa.

Bank Of America. Remember The Lessons From Cyprus

Image
And another one bites the dust. Now it’s Bank of America, one of the largest banks in the Land of the Free, that is inadequately capitalized.

Last month, Bank of America made a lot of noise about how they were going to buy back up to $5 billion worth of common shares.

As CEO Brian Moynihan stated, “We have simplified our company and we have more than adequate capital to support our strategic plans. We are well positioned to return excess capital to our shareholders.”

Needless to say, investors cheered the announcement, and BofA’s stock price rose nicely as a result.

Fast forward 45 days… and boy what a difference reality makes.

Bust of Alexander the Great found in Cyprus

Archaeology: bust of Alexander the Great found in Cyprus

Archaeologists in Cyprus found a marble bust of Alexander the Great - considered one of history's most successful commanders - in a second three-aisled basilica that was brought to light on the site of Katalymmata ton Plakoton, of the Akrotiri peninsula, as GreekReporter website writes.

Excavations by the Cyprus Antiquities Department in the area have been in progress since 2007 when the first basilica was revealed.

It is believed that the two basilicas are part of a monumental ecclesiastical complex which according to Eleni Procopiou, an area officer for the Antiquities Department, is related to St John the Merciful, Patriarch of Alexandria, the patron saint of Limassol.
