The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 17 August 2019
DIGITAL.NEOSKOSMOS.COM THE WEEKEND NEOS KOSMOS | SATURDAY 17 AUGUST 2019 21 Letters to the Editor SHARING LANGUAGE IN BILINGUAL STUDY OF THEATRE The genesis of classical drama was not symptomatic. An euphoria of charismatic and talented protagonists showed fantastic scenes of historic episodes. The prologue, the theme and the epilogue, comprised the trilogy of drama while synthesis, analysis and synopsis characterised the phraseology of the text. The syntax and phraseolo- gy used by scholars, academics and philosophers in their rhetoric, had many grammatical idioms and idiosyncrasies. The protagonists periodically used pseudonyms. Anonymity was a syndrome that characterised the theatrical atmosphere. The panoramic fantasy, the mystique, the melody, the aesthetics, the use of the cosmetic epithets are characteristics of drama. Even though the theatres were physically gigantic, OPEN LETTER TO CYPRUS COMMUNITY CLUB People read of you in the English edition of Neos Kosmos. Challenge the Turkish-Cypriot community to set an example for the Palestinians. Twin Nicosia and Jerusalem. Create linkage. Invite 10,000 muslims from Gaza and an equal OPINION HATERS OF Ξ AND THE WAR TO MAKE IT REDUNDANT People petition about all sorts of matters, but who would have thought that the letter 'xi' would have so many enemies. Chad the math man from London, started a petition this year to make it redundant and no sooner did he post it on change.org, that hundreds signed up to ban 'xi'. The reasons are as follows: "No one likes xi. It is impossible to write, I mean which great mind thought it would be a good idea to turn a tornado into a letter, simply preposterous. With enough petitions, we can legally remove all "xi" found in the world. It will force all textbooks to utilise other variable or constant names and any manifestation of the letter after we achieve our goal will be made illegal, with punishments ranging up to the death penalty. "This is part of a bigger campaign, where one step at a time we will get rid of Nelson Underwood Mile End, South Australia Cyprus can be a channel for peace. annoying letters to write, in order to build a world that isn't governed by chickenscratch looking equations." REACTIONS TO Ξ Some of those who signed gave reasons for their disdain. "I'm an engineer and I already don't know how to do math. Don't make this any harder than it needs to be," wrote Joshua Arment. Tyler Macintyre from Canada argued that nobody writes ξ the same way, and this causes confusion. Though quarter Greek, Zachary Taylor from the United States had an objection to the 'three horizontal lines' of the capital of ξ. Even those who were good at math, stated they had difficulty writing this letter. The goal is to gather 2,500 signatures and the petition is nearly done. "I can not believe we gained so many signatures in such a small time! This only shows the frustration that millions of mathematicians and physicists live with in their lives. Please share the petition with your friends, family and loved ones. The more signatures the better. Together we will eradicate xi," Chad the math man stated.

Write your comments on our social media pages and see them publicized here... there was no need for microphones because the architecture and the acoustics would echo isometrically and crystal – clear. Many epistemologists of physics, aerodynamics, acoustics, electronics, electromagnetics, cannot analyse – explain the ideal and isometric acoustics of Hellenic theatres even today. There were many categories of drama: classical drama, melodrama, satiric, epic, comedy, etc. The syndrome of xenophobia or dyslexia was overcome by the pathos of the actors who practised methodically and emphatically. Acrobatics were also euphoric. There was a plethora of anecdotal themes, with which the acrobats would electrify the ecstatic audience with scenes from mythical and historical episodes. Some theatrical episodes were characterised as scandalous and blas- number of Jews to share a unified Nicosia. Set an example of co-existence. Someone has to set an example, Nicosia. If Nicosia cannot set an example, the Arabs and Jews will keep fighting. On and on. YOUR SAY YOUR WORDS. YOUR VOICE. Here’s what our readers on Facebook thought about: Nick Maroubra Have a swathe of profanities under your belt, or don’t drive!!!! Tips for driving in Greece The Greek roots of language can be understood by all. phemous. Pornography, bigamy, homophilia, nymphomania, polyandry, polygamy and heterosexuality were dramatised in a pedagogical way so the mysticism about them would not cause phobia or anathema or taken as anomaly but through logic, dialogue and analysis, skepticism and the pathetic or cryptic mystery behind them would be dispelled. It is historically and chronologically proven that theatre emphasised pedagogy, idealism and harmony. Paradoxically it also energised patriotism a phenomenon that symbolised ethnically character and phenomenal heroism." Θωμάς Γ. Ηλιόπουλος Analytical and absolutely austere critic Tas Pavlakis Be aggressive, defensive doesn't work well in Greece with anything... even if it's driving, going to the bank, or even dealing with the tax office... aggressive is key... yell and your job will be done... Stephen Makaras Drive fast and like they do... the rest will sort itself out... Con Tsapatolis Mountzes, plenty of mountzes works all the time. Effie Tsitsis Don't use fastest routes on GPS otherwise you will end on country town roads, drive around small townships. If you're lucky enough you may even drive through field roads for entertainment. We, at times, drove to places we never heard of. One way streets don't mean one way, its your way. All a holiday experience. James Dandalhs I struggle going through roundabouts, I have to think STAY RIGHT while some driver behind me is honking and yelling profanities! Nikita Kots James Dandalhs, there's a roundabout in Kalamata which defies all the norms of roundabout regulations. Yianni Koutouzis I think it's very easy, the roads and freeways are way better quality than Australian roads! Elizabeth Martin Egbe Can't argue with this, however few Cretans honk their horns except to tell those at the front of the queue that the ill-placed traffic lights have changed to green (and then only politely). Oh and indicators? Forget it.. Regina Michaletos-Lyons Agree with all points except for "assume no one can drive". Anyone who has the ability to survive driving in such chaos is an 'othiyara' and highly skilled. I'll add that being a passenger in Greece is a huge adrenaline rush but I actually, remarkably, have always felt safe at all times (probably due to the aggressive confidence of the drivers). Marietta Parianos Remember two lanes is an illusion. If the vehicle fits, it goes. Mezza Dee When I was 17 and had moved to Melbourne from the country, I was a cautious and anxious driver until my trip to Greece that year. After seeing the chaos in Athens, my confidence skyrocketed off the Richter, so thank you Athenians you did me a favour. John Margheriti The rules are: There are no rules! Luke Sikalias What a condescending article. As if Melburnians are perfect drivers. I've driven in Athens without a hitch. You get in the groove. If anything, you don't get abused fir the slightest mistake! Ευάγγελος Μπατάλης It seems chaotic but in Greece you just drive and everyone helps each other on the road, it's full of courteous drivers believe it or not! Also not without a lot of comedy, and road rules are a general guide more than anything else!
