The Greek Warrior
It was ten o'clock. Far fewer tourists were about than on a typical July evening, and at the restaurant Greek voices were low. When a passerby took Varoufakis's hand—the minister preferred a right-angled bro-shake with Greeks—he kept shaking it with ...

What's it like visiting the set of a TV show? We dropped by The Strain to find out
It's an actual female human doing the calling, not a robot, which also encourages me to feel like I should sound properly awake and eager to hear from her, despite this train of thought going completely against the purpose and logic of a wake-up call ...

On July 4th, the night before a referendum asked the Greek people to decide how far their debt-ridden government should accommodate the demands of its main creditors—the “troika” of the European Union, the European Central Bank, and the... In January, Varoufakis, an economist who had been teaching at the University of Texas at Austin, abruptly entered Greek politics, becoming the public face of the country’s defiant negotiations with European leaders. The people would vote “yes”—that is, in favor of making more concessions than Varoufakis and Alexis Tsipras, the country’s forty-year-old Prime Minister and the leader of Syriza, had said that they could stomach. Varoufakis would resign as a minister, and would never again have to endure all-day meetings in Brussels and Luxembourg, listening to other European finance ministers scold Greece for its disobedience. Varoufakis had not given up his hostility toward the troika, or the economic arguments underpinning that hostility, but he spoke as if Syriza’s weeklong campaign of slogans and street protests in support of ohi —“no”—were already archived in... A “yes” vote, Varoufakis declared, was “inevitable.
On Friday night, millions of Germans sat down to watch the TV political comedy The Icedancer , about a German chancellor whose husband whisks her away on holiday to escape the stress of conflict in Ukraine and the Greek crisis. On the way to catch their train, she is knocked on the head by a falling signpost and wakes believing she is living in the runup to the fall of the Berlin Wall. But the chance to turn the clock back to a time before the Greek euro crisis dominated her chancellorship is something she might have relished this past week. The German leader has faced the biggest test of her almost decade-long tenure in the days leading up to last night’s dramatic debate on whether to bail Greece out again or to cut it loose from the eurozone. The entire future of Europe has appeared to rest on the shoulders of the woman who once said: “If the euro fails, Europe fails” – and might also have added: “And so do I. ”. Merkel has faced a decision between two potentially disastrous scenarios. As Artur Fischer, joint CEO of the Berlin stock exchange, puts it: “Either she goes for a third bailout but risks isolating herself domestically in the process – and also faces returning to the same point we’re at now six months down the line and... So familiar is she with its politics that Bernd Ulrich, chief political correspondent of the weekly Die Zeit , half-joked that “she could co-govern in Athens any time”.
