Greece faces 'deadline to clinch bailout' - Europe - Al Jazeera English
Greece has only one day left to clinch a eurozone bailout and a bond swap with creditors to manage its crushing debt repayments, its finance minister has said, warning that talks were "on a knife edge".
"The moment is very critical," Evangelos Venizelos told reporters on Saturday after a telephone conference with fellow eurozone finance ministers, which he described as "very difficult".
"Everything must be concluded by tomorrow (Sunday) night... so that we can be within the timetable given the bond maturities in March," the minister said.
You know there is no such thing. right? in theory worm holes exist in one time but take a long time to travel through. So, rule out that form of time travel also.
and bend theory forget about it. as soon as you step from one side to the other your back in the present. .
Last night, NASA's network of all-sky meteor cameras reported 23 Geminid fireballs over the United States. This sharp uptick in activity signals the official beginning of the 2013 Geminid meteor shower. For the next 3 to 4 days, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from rock comet 3200 Phaethon, producing dozens of meteors per hour flying out of the contellation Gemini. "There is a nice show going on right now," says Bill Cooke, head of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office.
There are 97 laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza in Alberta and some are of the H1N1 pandemic strain seen in 2009, says Alberta Health Services.
"The predominant strain is influenza A and in the last three weeks we are seeing H1N1, which was the pandemic strain," said Dr. Vivien Suttorp, medical officer of health for AHS South Zone. "The influenza vaccine this year does cover the H1N1 strain."
Suttorp was not able to say on Wednesday how many of the 97 confirmed cases of influenza in Alberta have the H1N1 strain.
There is also no explanation as to why there are H1N1 cases, said Suttorp, but the province is already seeing little kids with this strain.
In the south zone there have been six laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza so far but the numbers are typical for this time of year. There are no statistics available for just Medicine Hat.
"Be proactive, get the influenza vaccine," said Suttorp. "Be ahead of the wave. It takes two weeks for the immunity to kick in."
The vaccine is available through many pharmacies and family physicians.
Suttorp says the vaccine is not a guarantee you will not get sick but if you do it will not be as prolonged or as severe.

"No vaccine is 100 per cent but it confers a level of immunity," said Suttorp.
Anyone experiencing influenza symptoms should stay home, said Suttorp, who suggests following your instincts regarding whether you need to see a physician. The other option is to call Health Link Alberta 1-866-408-5465 for advice on seeing see a doctor.
