4 FACE-TO-FACE Mr. George Markatos Mr. George Markatos is a Hospitality & Catering Department faculty. Upon successfully completing an HND in Culinary Arts in Cyprus he moved to the UK to study for a BSc. in Hotel and Catering Management. This was followed by a MSc. in International Hospitality and Tourism Management. During his studies he continued to develop his career in the industry that he was involved in since the age of fifteen. He reached the position of Assistant Chef in the kitchen department, and also Banqueting Manager for the Hilton in Sheffield. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Business Administration (D.B.A.) How long have you been teaching at Americanos College in the Tourism Dept? This year I will complete my third year of teaching here. What is your favorite part of teaching and why? When students challenge my knowledge. I find it interesting as it means I have to keep up to date with new research and debates within the hospitality and tourism industry. I try to stimulate their curiosity in their area of study. After that it is up to them to use this knowledge. What do you think about dealing with foreign students on a daily basis? There is a saying When in Rome act like a Roman. It is vital for the students to understand and respect this. Foreign or non foreign, my main understanding is that they are all students with common needs to be fulfilled. It is important to know, as any academic should, that culture plays a vital role to the student s behavior. To this give and take relationship I try to get into their shoes based on my experiences. What would you like to offer to your students through your academic and work experience? Respect, the meaning of continued knowledge and research, and the real facts What are your hobbies and interests? I like football a lot and chess, but I guess my biggest interest is music. I guess it is part of my life. Your short term and long term goals? My short term goal is to finish my PhD as best as possible. My long terms goal is to have a happy and healthy family. Any valuable advice you would like to give to Americanos College students? The path to success is narrow and long. It takes lots of sweat and perhaps time. Patience and the time will come. What is your motto of life? That, which does not kill me, makes me stronger.
5 THE WORLD AT A GLANCE Major blow for N epal's monarchy as PM says king must go (Yahoo online) KATHMANDU (AFP) - Nepal has moved a step closer to ditching its monarchy with the Himalayan nation's premier turning on embattled King Gyanendra and calling for him to quit, analysts and officials said. Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala, the respected octogenarian architect of Nepal's peace process, on Monday said King Gyanendra should abdicate -- a major about-turn for a politician previously seen as sympathetic to the throne. "The prime minister was the only man in the ruling parties who supported the monarchy and now he has given it up," Rabindra Khanal, a political analyst and professor from Nepal's Tribhuvan University, told AFP. Koirala had argued that the king, viewed by his supporters as a god-like figure, was trying to undermine a peace deal between the government and the fiercely republican Maoist rebels. Politicians have already accused the king's allies of stirring a recent wave of deadly ethnic unrest in the south of the country. Beta carotene pills may not save vision (Yahoo online) CHICAGO - Carrots, rich in beta carotene, long have been thought to sharpen eyesight, but a new study suggests that beta carotene pills are powerless against a common type of vision loss among older people. Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people 65 and older. The condition blurs the center of the field of vision, making it difficult to read, drive, thread a needle and even recognize faces. It affects more than 10 million Americans and there is no cure. IN GREEK Γιατί η σωματική άσκηση αυξάνει τις νοητικές επιδόσεις Η αερόβια αύξηση προκαλεί αύξηση των νευρώνων σε μια περιοχή του εγκεφάλου που σχετίζεται με τη μνήμη, ανακάλυψαν Αμερικανοί ερευνητές. Πειράματα σε ποντίκια έδειξαν ότι η άσκηση αυξάνει τα νευρικά κύτταρα στην οδοντωτή έλικα, ένα τμήμα του ιππόκαμπου στον εγκέφαλο που είναι γνωστό ότι σχετίζεται με την απώλεια μνήμης που αρχίζει να εμφανίζεται στους περισσότερους ανθρώπους μετά τα 30. Το φαινόμενο παρατηρήθηκε έμμεσα σε ανθρώπους, καθώς μαγνητικές τομογραφίες έδειξαν ότι η αεροβική άσκηση αυξάνει την αιμάτωση στην οδοντωτή έλικα. Συγκεκριμένη μελέτη δημοσιεύεται στο Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. Η αύξηση των νευρώνων καταγράφηκε αρχικά σε ποντίκια από τον Δρ Φρεντ Κέιτζ του Ινστιτούτου Salk στην Καλιφόρνια. Ο Κέιτζ συνεργάστηκε στη συνέχεια με τον Σκοτ Σμολ του Ιατρικού Κέντρου για να εξετάσει το φαινόμενο στον άνθρωπο. Στο πείραμα συμμετείχαν 11 υγιείς εθελοντές, οι οποίοι αρχικά υποβλήθηκαν σε
6 μαγνητική τομογραφία εγκεφάλου και στη συνέχεια ακολούθησαν πρόγραμμα αεροβικής γυμναστικής για τρεις μήνες. Στο τέλος του προγράμματος αυτού μετρήθηκε η φυσική τους κατάσταση και υποβλήθηκαν εκ νέου σε μαγνητική τομογραφία. Η σύγκριση έδειξε ότι η αιμάτωση της οδοντωτής έλικας είχε αυξηθεί, και μάλιστα όσο μεγαλύτερη ήταν η βελτίωση της φυσικής κατάστασης, τόσο περισσότερο είχε αυξηθεί η ροή του αίματος. Οι ερευνητές συμπεραίνουν ότι η άσκηση επιδρά στον εγκέφαλο με τον ίδιο μηχανισμό σε πειραματόζωα και ανθρώπους. «Το επόμενο βήμα μας είναι να αναγνωρίσουμε το πρόγραμμα άσκησης που προσφέρει το μεγαλύτερο όφελος για τη βελτίωση των βοητικών επιδόσεων και τη μείωση της φυσιολογικής εξασθένισης της μνήμης» γράφουν στη δημοσίευσή τους.
