The dollar cost averaging people talk about, it works really well. Hanyecz is known as the first person to use bitcoin in a commercial transaction. Fleischman drops by with his daily valium shot. You can buy a pizza with Bitcoin. So, swings and roundabouts, EH? On May 22,when bitcoin was a little over a year old, he bought two pizzas for 10, BTC. Startup founders do this calculus whenever they raise capital.
This is getting difficult the more they approach the second stretch. Now the binoculars come to action. The racecourse is 1. But that it is getting exciting, you feel the buzz with the swelling murmur of the bystanders. The excitement boils up and rips through us. Now we want to bet as well! Fortunately, Christos is with us. He introduces us to the mysterious world of horse racing. In the main hall the monitors show the results of the recent race.
If you bet to win, the odds this time are 5. For a place bet you get a little less for your money. We reach for the green leaflets lying around on the bar tables. This "Official Race Card" contains the lists for the races of the day. With Christos we learn that it shows not only the name of the starting horses, but also the origin of their parents, their age, the name of the owner and the trainer, the names of the jockeys, their weight and the colour of their race dress.
With this important paper in our hands we move to the parade ring and watch the horses with imaginary expert eye. At least we know now a bit about each of them. For sure! Now we are keen to bet. Some of us bravely wave a Euro note, others balance a 2-Euro coin on their sweaty palm. Are you going to bet on an outright win of your chosen horse? If so, you have to say "Win", the number of the horse and the amount of the wager.
There is nothing more to explain. The people behind us are getting impatient anyway. They certainly do not want to miss what might be the greatest chance of a lifetime because of us greenhorns. So, decide beforehand and quickly place your bet!
A place bet "Place" is when you think that your selected hack will be in either first or second place. You can also opt for an "Omni" bet. Once you have placed your bet, even if only for the two Euro minimum, you will be bitten by the betting bug.
The starting gates spring open and the hooves kick up the sand. We jump off our seats and cheer our favourites. But such a race makes you realise that you must not count your chickens before they are hatched. Because the race will only be decided in the final stretch. Ltd Leof. Ltd Themistokli Dervi 27, P.

Mathiatis The mines of Mathiati are part of the World Cultural Heritage Mathiatis is located in the Nicosia province and it is 22km from the capital. It is a semi-mountainous village bordering the communities of Agia Varvara , Lythrodontas , Sia , Delikipos and Analiontas. Photo: mathiatis. The discovery of the head of Bacchus 2nd - 1st century BC , which is exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Cyprus and it is the emblem of the State Theatre, the Theatre Organisation of Cyprus, was discovered in the area of Mathiatis.
Photo: Maria Kiriakou In , when Cyprus was sold to the English by the Ottoman Turks and the English officially assumed the administration of the island, Mathiatis was their first unit of command and residence. In the area where the English lived, the inhabitants called it "English houses".
The only monument that has been preserved since the time is the English cemetery at the entrance of the village. The population of Mathiatis: Before , the village had a mixed population, with Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriot residents. After the disturbances, the Turkish Cypriots were forced to leave the village in the community, remaining Greek Cypriots. After the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in , the population of the village increased, with many refugee families settling there.
Nowadays there is a significant increase in the population, namely, since the last census in , when the village numbered inhabitants, today it has inhabitants. Photo: Maria Kiriakou The name of the village: There are four versions of how the village got its name.
According to the first version it is reported that the inhabitants of the village of Mathiatis, in the past years, cultivated many vineyards, produced wine, drank it and "methousan" meaning: got drunk. From this fact and the word verb, the village was called Mathiatis. A second version points out that once in Mathiati a drought fell on the village. Farmers were then forced to "madoun" meaning: take apart or clean out or take off with their hands.
From the "madoun" came the village name Mathos and later it was called "Mathiatis". According to a third version, the village name was taken by a lord who lived there and was called "Mathious". Finally, a fourth version tells us that the first inhabitants who came to the village came from the village of Amathkies of Tillyrias. The area was originally named Amathikiotis and then Mathiatis. Photo: Maria Kiriakou The occupations of the inhabitants of Mathiatis: Most residents of Mathiatis work as private and public servants in the village, Nicosia and Larnaka.
C ,that is on display in the Archaeological Museum in Cyprus. When Cyprus was sold to the British by the Ottoman Turks in , the British took over the island and chose to live outside the town in order to stop any hostilities. Appreciating the natural environment, the geographical position and the mild weather of the community, Mathiatis was the first administration unit and their accommodation area. The only monument which has been saved from that period, is the British cemetery that is located in the entrance of the village Agia Varvara — Mathiati Road.
Before the village has a mixed population with Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriot residents. Due to the internal crisis, the fighting and disturbances that occurred during December , the Turkish Cypriots were forced to leave the village and seek refuge at other neighbouring villages. Since then only Greek Cypriots stayed in the village. After the war of and the consequences which occurred, many refugee families settled in Mathiatis. Name There are four versions for the community name: The first version mentions that the residents cultivated many vineyards during the older years.
The residents drank a lot of wine and got drunk. The Greek word for drunk is metho , and that is where the name Mathiatis comes from. A second version states that there was once a period of drought in the village and the crops were too small.
