Greek island declares wildfires emergency
Authorities in Greece have declared a state of emergency on the island of Zakynthos where wildfires are burning for a fourth day.
The Fire Service says that the blazes are burning on 12 fronts and not threatening homes or resorts on the island, which is popular with tourists, AP reports. 
A statement from the office of Zakynthos Mayor Pavlos Kolokotsas said there were "clear indications that fires were caused by an organized campaign of arson.'' 

Arson-related fires near populated areas in Greece are often associated with illegal development, especially near Athens and around holiday resorts.

Carmelia Albu – Ombudsman of the Public Broadcaster „Teleradio-Moldova”, in the service of community

Ombudsman service is an independent source of information, explanation and analysis of the Public Broadcaster’s programs and adherence to European standards and practices of broadcasting programs’ development.

Ombudsman is a mediator who handles complaints between a televiewer /radio-listener or a group of people and the Broadcaster. Ombudsman replies to the questions of TV viewers and Radio-listeners, receives and reviews complaints from people.

“Ombudsman” was first used in its modern sense in 1809 when the Swedish Parliament established the office of Justitieombudsman, who was to look after citizens’ interests in their dealings with government.

Later, in 1988, a similar service was established in media in France. It was a real "explosion” that caused the appearance of similar services in other world countries.
