Movie “The Good Brother”

  1. The Father of the family just sleeps, goes to the coffee shop, gives some money for charity or goes shopping or he does not care and does party with other irresponsible and notorious creatures.
  2. The mother of the family, does not care, does not execute her maternal duties with a minimum sense of responsibility, like pretending the “big lady”, leaving the house dirty, cooking whatever we don’t like, giving orders to shop staff we mostly don’t like….
  3. The children, like “The Good Big Brother” does whatever is possible and sometimes can be named “achievements” and gets many tangible and intangible rewards for being a hardworking bachelor….. and a good man most of the times.
  4. The children, like the “small brother” has tried some times through malicious manners to harm “The Good Big Brother” with a hidden way, that dates back more than 20 years. He has been rewarded some times for his evil actions from other evil creatures but “The Good Big Brother” has managed many times to survive, he has lived a humble life till now and has done many good deeds till now

 

“The End”

“The Good Big Brothers” cannot tolerate the lack of respect, the lack of care, the lack of support, the lack of team work, the lack of proper manners and behaviour etc and take the “divine order” by God to start making some punishments and take many “seeds of love”, “seeds of delight”, “rewards for achievements” and many

“blessings of good fortune” for being respectful of religions.

Reporters, Journalists and Media

©®™E-BCR, Michael Kassotakis,

https://www.e-bcr.com

I read and I am also informed every day about The News and other information through various resources. I would like to share the concern about the danger, that reporters and journalists face when they report, write, announce, broadcast and transmit news and other crucial information. There is past evidence of deaths of reporters and journalists during the call and execution of duty. This proves the great danger that specific categories of reporters and journalists  face like war correspondents, military forces correspondents, crime correspondents etc. They must qualify for “Heavy and Unhealthy” stamps and receive higher pensions due to the aforementioned fact. I would like to congratulate some regional websites of Crete island that offer current information on a less than three hours basis.  This is based on my personal and other experience during my hard, adventurous and suffering stay in Crete. “The Main Sample” of these are:


  • “Nea Kriti” https://www.neakriti.gr

  • “Creta Live” https://www.cretalive.gr

  • “Prisma News” https://www.prismanews.gr

Olympic Movement-Olympic Games-International Federations-NOCs

The Honorable President of Olympic Movement, Thomas Bach,

Organising Committees for The Olympic Games 

Attn: International Federations, 

Chiefs of National Olympic Committees

I have updated my personal account details at your website since 2 hours.
The following remarks have to be corrected:

1) Update the software in order to allow also lowercase letters.
According to IANA and ISOC and Internet Rules of good practice, the restriction to write and register only in Uppercase letters is a very offensive and unkind signification that means you don’t respect
Internet users, the registrant and receivers of correspondence.

2)The correct Name and designation for the account registration is:
Michael Kassotakis MCIM, FCMI, CMKtr instead of the below Name and designation: MICHAEL KASSOTAKIS MCIM, fCIM, CMKTR, that was the only option accepted by the website.

3) This is an indication that many other mistakes of Names and designations, will be found at your database, IOC, NOC, paperwork, print materials etc.

4)You have to apply inaccessibility and neutrality at the residences of Olympic Movement Members, if there is not criminal action. The only authority who has the right to apply punishments for major inclined behaviour is The IOC and The Relevant

“Olympic Movement Court”

5) If any national authority violates the inaccessibility and neutrality of Olympic Movement Members at a minimum e.g. of NOC Assistant level, without the approval of IOC “Disciplinary Committee”, the NOC of this country or The Authority Members that violated the above have to face the law and be excluded from future Olympic Games or pay a satisfactory compensation to The Olympic Movement Member if he/she has not committed a crime.

6) It has come to my notice from sources that it is not allowed to be revealed that the above point relates to many violations in Olympic Movement Members Residences in many cases. It is strongly recommended to check, conduct investigations and apply penalties for all these cases.

7) You are requested for our mutual good shake to visit my website
E-BCR, https://www.e-bcr.com/ very regularly for a better world and more….

Rise and Landing in Heraklion – Visit to a chapel – Holly Places Improvements

Today, I started a rise and landing in Heraklion. I arrived in Heraklion between 15:00-15:20. I stopped at the closest Fuel Station, this is a  British Petroleum Unit at 15:35 and I put efficient fuel for a short drive.

I drove towards the rise of The Heraklion Industrial Zone and crossed many roads like I-K-L-M. I remember, the Industrial Zone was flourishing  when I was a teenager in the 90’s. Nowadays, many businesses face financial problems there and few of them can survive.

I continued the drive towards the hill of the industrial zone that The Chapel of Saints Pantes is located. I climbed the stairs and entered in The Chapel and The Holly Temple. I put some money in the relevant box, I took some candles, and lighted the candles for their grace. I kissed The Holly Pictures of The Saints Pantes, including Her Holiness Madonna and exited the temple.

The good points are that:

1)there are surveillance cameras for the protection of the visitors, guests, pilgrims, the chapel and the temple.

2)the chapel and the temple are built by stones and other concrete materials.

3)it has water and other facilities for the host of mass service, baptisms weddings etc

4) it has a magnificent and panoramic view of Heraklion city, and around areas, of Heraklion Industrial Zone, Heraklion International  Airport, and the beaches of Karteros, Amnissos, Tobruk and the avenue towards Chersonissos, Malia and Eastern Crete.

His Holiness Archbishop Irineos:The repairs that have to be made are:

1)A higher wall around the chapel for the increase of safety.

2)Water of the plants and trees when you repair the water network.

3)Paint white the walls, the facilities, the temple and the chapel with insulating paint for their better protection through the pass of time.

4) Remove the stable bars and put bars that can be risen when events are organized.

Most of the above good points and points for improvement can be generalized and applied in chapels, temples, churches, monasteries,

Archdioceses, Patriarchates and other Holly Religious Places.

Bakery-Military Nutrition-Snack and Drink

I visited a #bakery and I bought three #breads. I am very happy to realize that the bread was excellently baked, fresh and crispy. I guess that the ingredients was also of excellent quality. I can say this because in 1997 I had to do also the #baker as part of my First Month #Naval duties. Then I remember the ingredients in order to make bread for the #sailors, low rank #officers, medium rank officers and high rank officers was of poor quality. The result was a bread of poor quality compared to these I bought today and the main reason is the poor quality of ingredients. I believe this bakery can teach them how to make excellent bread that Naval and other #MilitaryForces deserve. I also remember that the #food in the #Navy was plenty but the quality could be much better, as well as the #nutrition, in order to maintain a good body and #stamina and offer much better #services. Last but not least, I cut a rounded corner of country bread, I added our #VirginOliveOil, Greek #Feta, our tiny red #tomatoes, some salt and #tsili. My result was an excellent #snack for my noon break, combined with a #lemonsoda on #ice.

Greek financial crisis- Pay off of Greek Debt

Many #Greek people have suffered a lot since the financial crisis of 2008.The huge debt is a result of more than 40 years financial failure. I don’t want to blame anyone but to state that there is hope and solution. #Greece has a unique #cultural wealth and heritage that is some thousands years old. This is the game advantage for its #tourism sector. A prosperous tourism sector will support the domestic agricultural sector. Then it is the Greek #Maritime fleet, one of the biggest in the #world. There are also other sectors that are worth mentioning but the aforementioned are the most important. Last but not least, Greece must make fast track deals for the exploitation of the rich #oil and #gas deposits in the #Ionian Sea and Livykon Sea in South #Crete. The estimate is that these deals will enable Greece to pay off its debt in less than 20 years.

Legalization, Quality Control of soft narcotics-Use in designated areas.

A great issue that needs immediate consideration and action from all republics and kingdoms all over the world, is the legalization, Quality Control  of soft narcotics and their designated use.

Private research that I have reviewed, indicates that legalization of soft narcotics like marijuana and cannabis will reduce significantly violence and crimes. Their use can be done after strict quality control because the most health problems and deaths are caused by narcotics mixed with chemicals and other damaging substances.

A tested designated use of soft narcotics is licensed cafes and bars but with proper inverter air-conditions for the recycling of the smokes.

Hard narcotics are extremely difficult to be legalized because they are extremely addictive and cause significant health problems that lead to one direction that is slow and painful death. Another point is that their legalization would raise significant protests by many related organisations and societies.

This conclusion is derived not only by private research but also from the street experience, I have gained through my  social and professional life. Relevant actions to be examined by relevant authorities…..
