Am I learning Greek or any Cyrillic language? No. It’s another Paniyiri-related post.
On Paniyiri, patrons are welcome to take a copy of Neos Kosmos newspaper. Neos Kosmos is a Greek community newspaper in Australia published every Saturday – therefore reporting Greek issues in Australia or issues in their ancestors’ homeland. The newspaper has some printing relations with Fairfax’s The Age. That means the paper is based in Melbourne.
Neos Kosmos is published in two languages, English and Greek. The English version is printed in ‘compact’ format and it has a mini Greek-language tabloid inserted. There is another Greek version printed as a broadsheet (the same size as ‘The Australian’ or ‘Sydney Morning Herald’). I’m not sure what’s the difference between the Greek tabloid inside the English edition and the Greek broadsheet.
What I don’t get is why does the paper cost $2.50 in NSW, ACT, Vic & SA but $3 elsewhere (Qld, NT, WA, Tas). Remind me of some Indonesian magazines which cost more outside Java and some Malaysian books which cost more in Sabah & Sarawak.
The feature that I really like from this paper is the headlines from major Greek newspapers.
If the Indonesian community in this part of the world plans to publish a weekly magazine or newspaper (printed or online version), I’m ready to contribute at your disposal. 😀
