The adventures of SIFIS and MANOUSAKAS, heroes of Cretan comics published in STIGMES

CRETAN MUSIC HAS TO BE HUMBLE Nikos Sopasis belongs to a generation of great masters of traditional Cretan music. Apart from his virtuosity on the lyre his music is characterized by his special, deeply expressive voice

THE LYRE IS THE INSTRUMENT OF GOD For many years Psarantonis, one of the greatest Greek traditional music artists, has expressed the desire to give a concert at Herodus Atticus Theatre but some short-sighted bureaucrats wouldn't give him the permission. He finally managed to perform there this summer, and the magic notes of his lyre flooded the ancient theatre. Psarantonis shares with STIGMES readers his thoughts about contemporary Cretan music, the concerts he has given abroad, his childhood in his hometown of Anogia, the lyre, which he characterizes "the instrument of God" and also the current critical situation of our country.

The Cretan (Mediterranean) Diet: Lose Weight, Live Longer and Healthier As early as the 1950s researchers were struck by the lower rates of heart disease, stroke and some kinds of cancer they observed among people who consumed what has come to be known as “the Mediterranean diet.” A 30-year, 7-nation comparative study sponsored by the World Health Organization spurred even further interest when it confirmed unusually low rates of heart disease among men from the Isle of Crete, even though they consumed surprisingly high levels of fat. Through these early research findings, a picture developed of this Mediterranean diet—one built on bread, fruit, vegetables, fish, a few dairy foods, and two surprise ingredients—wine and olive oil. And an enormous amount of research has been devoted to identifying its benefits and explaining how it works.
