  • The vanishing words we need to save (BBC News) Robert Macfarlane has pulled together nine glossaries of terms taken from 30 languages, dialects and sub-dialects around Britain and Ireland. They all describe aspects of weather, nature and terrain - and many of them are dying out, slipping out of conversation and off the tongues of those who once spoke them. They have been lost. Macfarlane wants them to be found. Described in his loatest book "Landmarks", this disappearing elements of language represent the disappearing connection between man and nature.

Greece

  • Young Greek women selling sex for the price of a sandwich, new study shows (The Washington Post) Hat tip to Sanjeev Kulkarni. Young Greek women are selling sex for the price of a sandwich as six years of painful austerity have pushed the European country to the financial brink, a new study showed Friday. The study, which compiled data on more than 17,000 sex workers operating in Greece, found that Greek women now dominate the country's prostitution industry, replacing Eastern European women, and that the sex on sale in Greece is some of the cheapest on offer in Europe.

Turkey

The areas reported captured are east of the Kweires, air base seized from Islamic State control on Nov. 10 in one of several offensives being waged by the Syrian army with support from Russian air strikes, Iranian forces, and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters.

Russia

  • Putin, citing national security, signs Turkey sanctions decree (Reuters) President Vladimir Putin signed a decree imposing a raft of punitive economic sanctions against Turkey on Saturday, underlining the depth of the Kremlin's anger toward Ankara four days after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane. The decree, which entered into force immediately, said charter flights from Russia to Turkey would be banned, that tour firms would be told not to sell any holidays there, and that unspecified Turkish imports would be outlawed, and Turkish firms and nationals have their economic activities halted or curbed.
