According to Dove Chocolate (Dove (chocolate)) company lore, he was frightened when his young son, Michael, raced recklessly down the street in pursuit of the neighborhood ice cream truck and decided to make his own ice cream bar in hopes of keeping Michael and his brother and sister, Chris and Amy, closer to home.

'''AK Hellas''' (the initials standing for the full name of the company, 'Aggelopoulos-Karkanis O.E.') was a Greek (Greece) manufacturer of light trucks and other metal products. It designed and produced two basic types of vehicles - all three-wheelers with 50cc engines, taking advantage of a favorable classification as "motorbikes" according to Greek law. One group of models it produced since 1965 were light trucks with "motorcycle" structure (steering and controls), a type of vehicle also produced in Greece by ''MEBEA'' (by far the most successful), ''Mego (Mego (motorbikes))'', ''Alta (Alta (vehicles))'', ''Saracakis'', ''Pitsos'' (a big home appliances manufacturer), ''Markal'', ''Naxos'' and others. The other group of models were "proper" micro-trucks, with "automobile" structure of steering, controls etc. It was in this category that ''AK Hellas'' became the biggest truck manufacturer in Greece, leaving behind ''MEBEA'', ''Delta'' (a product of ''Attica (Attica (automobiles))''), ''Minicar'', ''Zamba'' and other smaller Greek manufacturers. The company's ''T200'' model, using a ''Sachs'' 50cc 4.8hp engine and with a payload of 150 kg was produced between 1968 and 1975 with three different cab designs and in several versions (including van models). The company survives to date as ''Aggelopoulos Group'' still manufacturing metal products. Commons:Category:Greece Wikipedia:Greece Dmoz:Regional Europe Greece

Greece In Greece, Mark Mindler established in 1913 the third Sea Scout troop of Athens (3η Ομάς Αθηνών Ναυτοπροσκόπων) as the first scouting group of the country.

The group operates to this day. http: www.3oan.gr Book on the 25th Anniversary of 3rd Sea Scout Troop of Athens, 1913-1938 '''Automeccanica''' was a Greek (Greece) automobile producing company. Founded in 1979, it was one of the companies that produced the "passenger-utility" type of vehicle popular in Greece at the time for tax categorization reasons. Its creators were former executives of ''Autokinitoviomihania Ellados'' (meaning 'Greek Car Industry') a company founded in 1975 to also produce vehicles of this type – it assembled Italian (Italy) Fissore models based on Fiat products, as well as other Fiat models and variants. Automeccanica followed a different path, building the ''Zebra'' model, a passenger-utility car based on the ''Daihatsu Charade'', as well as assembling the ''Charade'' itself. In 1985, when the law favoring the ''Zebra''-type vehicles changed, Automeccanica stopped its production (after about 2,000 units had been built) and started licence production of the Soviet Lada Niva model, while it developed its own cabrio-version of the car. In 1988 it acquired its former "father" company, ''Autokinitoviomihania Ellados'' and the latter's factory in Thiva. Automeccanica went out of the car-construction business in 1995. Gallipoli After very hard training, both battalions embarked on 9 July 1915 from Liverpool, disembarking on the 19. in Greece at Mudros on the Aegean (Aegean Sea) island of Lemnos, where disease reduced battalion strength from 1000 to 800 even before the planned landing at Sulva Bay on the Gallipoli peninsula (Battle of Gallipoli). Staunton, p.94 The intention was to land north of the Turkish forces (Turkish Army) and cut them off, opening the way to Constantinople. The 1st Regular RMF had already been engaged in fighting with varying intensity since its landing in April. The 10th (Irish) Division landed at Sulva Bay (landing at Cape Helles) on the 7. August, already weakened by the fact that a number of its battalions had been landed on the wrong beaches. The tenth division was left with only 5 battalions, including the two RMFs, out of 13. Their objective was to capture the Kiretch Tepe Sirk ridge along the North side of the bay. The 6th landed first with 25 officers and 749 men, then the 7th with 28 officers and 750 men. Staunton, p.95 Serbia With the Bulgarian invasion of Serbia, both Greece and Serbia requested Allied (Allies of World War I) help. In response the 10th (Irish) Division was shipped to Salonika for the Macedonian campaign (Macedonian front (World War I)). . Staunton, p.104 The division received extensive training as well as reinforcements from non-regimental sources changing the character of the two battalions. Still wearing summer uniforms the severe snow and frost at high level caused many casualties. The Bulgarian forces made intensive progress and threatened the Anglo-French force, the 7th RMF in a front line position. At Kosturino it held the rearguard as the 10th Division, which included Connaught Rangers and Royal Dublin Fusiliers, was ordered to retreat at the end of December. Having failed to prevent the fall of Serbia, the Allied forces remained at Salonika, where during early 1916 the two RMF battalions were built up to strength again. . Staunton, pp.105-07 '''MAVA''' Company was the Greek (Greece) importer of Renault automobiles. In 1979, it decided to enter the car-production business introducing a passenger-utility car, a type then very popular in Greece for tax cetagorization reasons. MAVA assigned the creation of the car to Georgios Michael, a Greek designer credited with the design of Neorion Chicago, as well as that of several other Greek vehicles. Michael and his team completed the development and prototype construction (on Renault mechanicals) in record-time and the car, named ''Farma'', was introduced the same year. MAVA had insisted that the car should be presented as a "Renault model" and thus the prototype was tested and approved by the French (France) company. The ''Farma'', accordingly bearing the Renault logo, was produced in a variety of versions, including "passenger" and "van" types. It had a 4-cylinder 845 cc Commons:Category:Greece Wikipedia:Greece Dmoz:Regional Europe Greece
historical region of Epirus, which overlaps modern Albania and Greece but mostly lies in modern Greek territory. Amazon tribe background As described in her comic book appearances, Artemis was born an Amazon (Amazons (comics)) as a member of the Egyptian tribe of Bana-Mighdall, who migrated from Greece to various European and Middle Eastern countries before finally settling in Egypt. ''Wonder Woman'' (vol. 2) #33 Three thousand years ago, the two Amazon Queens (Hippolyta (Hippolyta (DC Comics)) and Antiope (Antiope (DC Comics))) split the Amazon nation in two. Hippolyta's tribe traveled to the isolated island of Themyscira (otherwise known as Paradise Island) to live immortal lives in order to protect the doorway to the Underworld called Doom's Doorway. Antiope's tribe was never given immortality and were forced to mate with common men in order to guarantee their tribe's survival over the centuries. As they had renounced their Olympian gods (Olympian Gods (DC Comics)) once the two Queens parted ways, they eventually began to assimilate various religions and goddesses from the many lands they traveled to. Some of those included the goddesses Isis (Isis (DC Comics)), Mammitu (Mamitu), Bast (Bast (goddess)), and Neith. It was in Egypt that they finally built the city of Bana-Mighdall, which in their language translates to "''The Temple of Women''". Thanking the Amazons for their worship, one of their new goddesses created a powerfully consistent sandstorm to surround and protect their city from any outsiders who could not be trusted, or "ariadnas". The Bana-Mighdallian Amazons eventually began an uneasy trade with outside cities in order to create commerce. They would exchange custom-made weapons and their warrior skills for goods and slaves for breeding. Commons:Category:Greece Wikipedia:Greece Dmoz:Regional Europe Greece
