chattels: ATHENS — Greeks have voted overwhelmingly to reject the bailout put forward by international creditors, and following Sunday's referendum, campaigners filled the main square in Athens to celebrate. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Greeks had voted for a "Europe of solidarity and democracy,"
but EU officials have warned that the result of the referendum could push Greece towards an exit from the eurozone, and that future negations would be tough. Some form of deal is needed urgently, as Greek banks are likely to run out of money without emergency loans. Tsipras remained upbeat though.
"Today, considering last week's very difficult circumstances, you made a very brave choice.
However I am fully aware that the mandate here is not a mandate to break with Europe, but a mandate to strengthen our negotiation position to seek a viable solution," he said in a live TV address Sunday.
In the above video, Dan Whitehead reports for Rudaw with the latest from Athens.

chattels: Ultra vires : Ultra vires is a Latin phrase meaning "beyond the powers". If an act requires legal authority and it is done with such authority, it is characterised in law as intra vires ("within the powers"). If it is done without such authority, it is ultra vires. Acts that are intra vires may equivalently be termed "valid" and those that are ultra vires "invalid".
chattels: The government of Iraq continues to act beyond the powers endowed by it's constitution.
chattels: Such excess does not " play well " when there is exclusivity in government and decided prejudice regarding religion and ethnicity.
chattels: It is a recipe for revolution and civil war. Oops, already there

[06:10:33 PM] MichelleL: sounded like okay, always confused me when I was there Chattels
[06:10:36 PM] chattels: Opa! (Greek: Ώπα), is a common Greek verbal emotional expression used frequently during celebrations or dancing in Greece.
MichelleL: chattels, I'll rent zorba from netflix this week lol - was one of my mom's favorites
chattels: Sometimes Opa can be used while eating dinner as a form of cheers to the chef. In the Greek culture, the expression sometimes accompanies plate smashing (purposeful or unintentional). It is also used during weddings or when people are dancing. The original meaning of the word is "I'm going to crumb" or "Whoops this doesn't normally happen!".
chattels: "Whoops this doesn't normally happen!".
chattels: love that translation / usage :)
MichelleL: plate smashing was their way of "clapping" but they generally stopped doing that except at the clubs when I was there in the 70s and 80s
MichelleL: or was it the 90s? lol aging is such fun
MichelleL: only place I ever saw the plate smashing live was at a club in Rhodes in fact
[06:13:41 PM] MichelleL: and they added them to the bill lol
