Travel bloggers tackle misconceptions about travel - Fun or unethical?

Today we picked up a story from +OurOyster.com on twitter and instragram.  
These travel bloggers on the run....go out of their way to use creativity (instagram Baklava photography) to capture their audiences in a way sometime that can be misinterpreted for the rest of mortals running around without the time to read beyond the headlines. 

*Lesson for the day: *
Don't just read headlines and simply react to twitter posts.

Education budgets under pressure in Member States

Investment in education fell in eight out of 25 Member States assessed as part of a European Commission study on the impact of the crisis on education budgets since 2010. Cuts of more than 5% were imposed in Greece, Hungary1, Italy2, Lithuania and Portugal, while Estonia, Poland3, Spain and the UK (Scotland) saw decreases of 1 to 5%. However, five Member States increased education spending by more than 1%: Austria, Denmark, Luxembourg, Malta and Sweden, as well as the German speaking area of Belgium. Germany and the Netherlands did not provide data for the period since 2010.

Spending trends vary in other Member States, with some increasing their budgets one year then decreasing them the next, or vice-versa. Belgium (French speaking community), Cyprus, Latvia, Finland, France, Ireland, Slovenia and the UK (Wales), as well as future member Croatia, increased their education budget in 2010-2011, but reduced it in 2011-2012. It was the opposite case in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia, which cut education budgets in 2010-2011 but increased them in the subsequent period. The Flemish community of Belgium kept their budget stable in both years.
