Yes. You can subscribe to Nova and you will get some American and British channels. Currently, there are over 50 channels, most English speaking with a Greek language option, as well as all local channels. There are 10 sports channels, 3 current film channels (like HBO), several channels that show older films or not recent release, CNN, BBC, E entertainment, Discovery channel, National Geograhic channel, History channel, Travel channel, etc. There is no ABC, NBC, CBS, etc, but nothing offered will get you that, at the moment at least. Nova is the best option available that I know of at the moment. the dish costs about 100 euro and the monthly fee is around 50 euro with a one year subscription. You can buy them from Germanos and other electronics places around Greece and the service is on the day of installation. Good luck! Jas

Teresa Originally Answered: Question for those who live outside the US about the American attitudes?
I'm American so not who you directed this at, so hope you don't mind. The current healthcare debate isn't about giving to others only if it doesn't affect ourselves. That's a false front presented by the pro-current-package side to confuse what the complaints are. The complaints are: ` that there are middle grounds & solutions to provide for everyone that don't require going to a completely socialized program. ` that this program as set up is no more affordable than what we have now that doesn't cover people & leaves us paying for them in other less okay ways (like emergency room visits.) ` still doesn't allow government to negotiate with drug companies, even though private plans can do so, leaving the same lobby power of drug companies in place that IS part of the problem to begin with. ` ultimately leaves little to no competition in the long run, which means worse care for everyone, at a higher cost. In other words, the objection is that this is a not a very good solution & we can do much better. ` lack of competition is a major concern. The US has been a leader in medical advances for a long time (not in everything all the time, but in general). That "american way" in many fields comes out of a sense of competition & indviduality & innovative advancement.... that people don't want to see squashed in this field anymore than in any other .... just to rush a program into place that we can't even figure out how to pay for so it's introducing new unsolved problems at the same time. None of it about -not- wanting to get coverage in place for people who currently don't have it. It's a matter of wanting some reasonable ingenuity in finding solutions, & looking for real, viable, long term ones. .......... Personally I'd start by unlinking health care from jobs. That ends the entire loss of care when fired or changing jobs. Then adjust regulations on pre-exiting conditions & cherrypicking that the powerful insurance lobby has managed to get in place. Then see what the fall out is. It should be just low income cases that can't afford care. That's a different problem & can be "solved" in a variety of ways, but that are much less costly than dismantling our current competitive system & putting a whole forced government system in place. The gv't medicare isn't bad, but you put more people on it, & the g'vt is going to go bankrupt. You're just creating another SSDI problem, but this time with tons of minusica to manage (medical specifics). And the care isn't bad, but it is lacking & not great either. You can get all sorts of stuff you don't need, but can't always get what you do need.

People arent much different anywhere. The US is great and the people but the government are and the laws suck.Not just in the US in every country. Its just that some people have their mindset in Money, Money. everywhere in the world theirs people like that. because not everyone> tend to have an mindset that we okay with others having things as long as it does not affect ourselves negatively in any way.< Wich is not wrong because your not doing anything. many people in different countrys have same thoughts it doesent really matter anymore.
Teresa Originally Answered: Question for those who live outside the US about the American attitudes?
I wouldn't say it's STRICTLY an American mindset, but it seems to be developed to a much higher degree in the USA than elsewhere that I know about. The US seems to have a tradition of extreme individualism, of competitiveness. There appears to be a horror of anything that could be seen as having anything whatsoever to do with 'socialism'. I don't know why that phobia arose. The McCarthy era was obviously its apogee, and somehow I would have expected the realisation of how dreadful that was to have led to a reaction, but instead all things connected with looking after one's fellow citizens are still regarded with suspicion. In the UK, we used to take for granted the notion of concern for others. This reduced after the individualising force of the Thatcher government (1979 onwards) but there are still strong principles that are taken for granted concerning healthcare and education, although more questioned in some other fields such as welfare benefits. There's a lot of debate about 'scroungers' - those who are perceived to cheat in some way in the benefits system eg by doing a few hours work for cash in hand - and outrage that some people can be better off not working when they have a number of children (this seems to me to be an argument about shocking levels of pay, but that's not how everyone sees it). We are moving towards a 'welfare to work' system, where unemployed people and even long-term disabled people will be forced to work in low-level activities in order to receive benefits. Personally, I think this might be appropriate for a small proportion of unemployed people, but for many, it's really not going to change anything much. Anyhow, the point is that some people DO resent paying their taxes in order to provide welfare benefits, but I don't know anyone who objects to paying tax in order to provide healthcare and education, EVEN among people who have the money to go private on both these aspects, have no children, are fortunately healthy etc.

You're almost guaranteed to not be noticed by American colleges, in most cases. You'd be noticed by your own colleges well before American ones. Now, that being said, if you end up continuing to be really good (sounds like you are now, considering your age), and start winning some of the local junior events and perhaps enough high school events, your chances will increase a lot. Golf is a game about who you know and who notices you. Unless you win your state's tournament either one or multiple times, even in America it's hard to get noticed by big-time golf colleges. One of the best things even the amazing young golfers here some times have to do is write letters over and over again to the colleges they're interested in to get noticed. The coaches and scouts will eventually, at least more than likely, take notice and will probably give you an closer look. Just like the game itself, and being you're from another country, it'll probably take a fair amount of hard work to make it over here. But best of luck and I hope we see you in about 5 years!

In addition to what the others have said, do keep this in mind. An athletic scholarship is not always a 100 percent free college education. There are partial scholarships that only pay for books or for tuition. Then there is the coveted free ride where you don't pay any money to go to college. All of these scholarships regardless of their generosity are called athletic scholarships. There are colleges that fully fund golf as a varsity sport. This means the college has the maximum number of players on full scholarship that are allowed under the rules. Then there are colleges that partially fund the sport. Scholarship and non scholarship players may be on the team. Golf is one of the few sports where college experience is not necessary to have a professional career. Tennis is another sport that is the same. If I were you, I'd pick academics plus hopefully a total scholarship over a school with a great golf team. Any person had slim odds at making it as a professional golfer. So having an education to fall back on is a must. If you do find yourself fortunate through your hard work and practice to get a full scholarship in golf then never ever forget this one fact that never changes: Every golfer on a Division I college golf team is good. A few are better than good and a smaller few are excellent. If you play Division I college golf in America then you are in very select company. Very few make it to that level. Do not get discouraged if you are not the best. It is a tough adjustment for players to make. When a young golfer on the local junior circuit is used to winning and winning often, then it is quite an eye opener to compete against people who are as good as you on a day in and day out basis. Only one person can win a tournament and only 10 can make the top 10 too. If you are one of them then good on ya, bully for you. But if you fall short now and then don't let that get to you because everyone in that pool knows how to swim with sharks including you.

Don't wait for others to find you. Find out which U.S. colleges have both top-notch golf programs and the educational programs you are interested in. Do some searching for the coaches names online. Then, write a good email to the coaches, and tell them about your abilities and your grades. Now is the time to start finding out about what colleges can do for you, not your last year of high school. Maybe your current school counselor can help with this? If you are in an organized league or if your school has a golf team, I would bet that your coaches had some way of contacting colleges to let them know of your talents. If you need to, get help from your current golf coach/tutor or an adult who can help you honestly evaluate your abilities, and to write the emails. Best of luck.
