Πρόκειται για ξενοδοχεία της οικογένειας G Hotels και συγκεκριμένα το Athos Palace, το Pallini Beach και το Macedonian Sun, που βρίσκονται στην Κασσάνδρα. Οι τρεις παραπάνω μονάδες εντάσσονται στο δίκτυο Bomo Hotels, του ομίλου Μουζενίδη, όχι όμως υπό τη διαχείρισή του, η οποία παραμένει στα G Hotels, αλλά με την παροχή αποκλειστικών υπηρεσιών στους πελάτες του ομίλου.
Ειδικότερα, όπως εξήγησε στη Voria.gr ο γενικός διευθυντής του Mouzenidis Group, Γιώργος Μασμανίδης, η συνεργασία αφορά ουσιαστικά την προώθηση των παραπάνω ξενοδοχείων στις αγορές που δραστηριοποιείται ο όμιλος, τη ρωσική κυρίως, αλλά και βαλκανικές και βαλτικές. «Πρόκειται για μονάδες που είναι πολύ γνωστές στους πελάτες μας, οι οποίοι μας ζητούσαν εδώ και καιρό να παρέχουμε κάποιες επιπλέον υπηρεσίες. Έτσι, τα συγκεκριμένα ξενοδοχεία θα λάβουν την πρόθεση Bomo στο σύστημά μας, χωρίς να αλλάξουν γενικά το όνομά τους, και οι πελάτες μας που τα επισκέπτονται θα απολαμβάνουν τις υπηρεσίες των Bomo Hotels, όπως το service, το all-inclusive και το animation, διάφορα μουσικοχορευτικά δρώμενα που πραγματοποιούν ομάδες στις εγκαταστάσεις των ξενοδοχείων μας», ανέφερε χαρακτηριστικά.
Να σημειωθεί πως τα Bomo Hotels του ομίλου Μουζενίδη έχουν ξεκινήσει φέτος αντίστοιχη συνεργασία με το ξενοδοχείο Aristoteles Holiday Resort & SPA, που βρίσκεται στην Αθωνική χερσόνησο, στο τρίτο πόδι της Χαλκιδικής.
Να αναφέρουμε ότι αυτή τη στιγμή στο δίκτυο Bomo ανήκουν 12 ξενοδοχεία στην Ελλάδα, εκ των οποίων έξι στη Βόρεια Ελλάδα και συγκεκριμένα τρία στη Χαλκιδική, δύο στην Πιερία και ένα στην Καβάλα.
Σε ό,τι αφορά την τουριστική κίνηση από τη ρωσική αγορά, ο κ. Μασμανίδης ανέφερε ότι η φετινή χρονιά έκλεισε στα επίπεδα του 2017, με περίπου 400.000 αφίξεις σε όλη τη χώρα, εκ των οποίων οι 200.000 στη Χαλκιδική, ενώ για το 2019 υπάρχουν θετικά μηνύματα, με άνοδο στις προκρατήσεις.

Οι εκδόσεις Αρχύτας με υπερηφάνεια παρουσιάζουν το βιβλίο του ιστορικού και δημοσιογράφου Ανδρέα Σταματόπουλου "Πολιτικές Δολοφονίες στη Θεσσαλονίκη & Συλλογική Μνήμη". Η παρουσίαση θα λάβει χώρα την Κυριακή 16 Δεκεμβρίου στις 12:00 στην Ιστορική και Λαογραφική Εταιρεία Χαλκιδικής, Αλεξάνδρου Σβώλου 10, 1ος όροφος στη Θεσσαλονίκη. Για το βιβλίο θα μιλήσουν ο πρόεδρος της Εταιρείας Μακεδονικών Σπουδών Βασίλειος Πάππας, ο Διδάκτωρ Κοινωνιολογίας Ιωάννης Νασιούλας, ο ιστορικός Δημήτριος Δαλακλής και ο συγγραφέας. Την συζήτηση συντονίζει ο δημοσιογράφος Χρήστος Γιασκουλίδης.
Ο συγγραφέας ασχολείται με τις υποθέσεις δολοφονίας του Βασιλιά Γεωργίου Α', του βουλευτή Γρηγορίου Λαμπράκη και του οργανωμένου ενάντια στην 21η Απριλίου, Γιάννη Χαλκίδη.
Η ιστορική έρευνα του συγγραφέα φέρνει νέα στοιχεία στο φως, που θα κάνουν να αναθεωρήσουμε αυτά τα οποία γνωρίζαμε μέχρι τώρα.
Επίσης, ο συγγραφέας εξετάζει την μνήμη της κοινωνίας σχετικά με τα θύματα πολιτικών δολοφονιών στην Θεσσαλονίκη, για τα οποία έχει στηθεί ένα μνημείο και έχει γίνει ονοματοδοσία κάποιας οδού στο Δήμο Θεσσαλονικής. Ερευνάται ποια είναι η μνημονική εκδοχή του επίσημου κράτους αλλά και των πολιτών. Η διερεύνηση των μνημείων, η ιστορία τους δηλαδή, θα βοηθήσει να ανασυγκροτήσουμε τις μνημονικές εμμονές της κοινωνίας της πόλης απέναντι στην χρονική στιγμή που ανεγέρθηκαν τα μνημεία, αλλά και στην πορεία τους στον χρόνο.

Το καταγράφει ο Τσελεμεντές το 1910 (το αναφέρει ως gateaux de Salonique), γιατί σερβιριζόταν στο Όλυμπος Νάουσα και σε άλλα παλιά μαγαζιά ως τούρτα που κοβόταν σε 12 κομμάτια και ο πελάτης έπαιρνε μία φέτα, σαν πάστα. Είναι ένα γλυκό που εμφανίστηκε στο Ντορέ από τότε που άνοιξε, το 1908, και δείχνει τις επιρροές που είχε αυτή η κοσμοπολίτικη πόλη από Ανατολή και Δύση. Είναι επιρροή πιθανότατα της αγγλοσαξονικής κουλτούρας, με λίγο μπέρδεμα από τη γαλλική, γι’ αυτό και ονομάστηκε «γκατό». Ωστόσο, στην ελληνική κουλτούρα υπήρχε από παλιά ένα γλύκισμα από κρόκο αυγού, χτυπημένο με ζάχαρη και κακάο, που το έδιναν στα παιδιά πριν εμφανιστεί η Μερέντα, και αυτό ακριβώς είναι το Γκατό ντε Σαλονικέν: πολλοί κρόκοι αυγών, ζάχαρη και πολλή σοκολάτα, χτυπημένα καλά και ψημένα για λίγη ώρα (μόλις 7 λεπτά).
Είναι ένα γλυκό που παίρνει το σχήμα της φόρμας (εμείς το φτιάχνουμε σε ατομική), αλλά όταν το κόψεις ξεχειλίζει, γιατί το εσωτερικό του παραμένει σε υγρή μορφή. Δεν έχει βούτυρο ούτε κανένα άλλο υλικό. Για να διατηρηθεί το σχήμα στο ψήσιμο αλείφουμε με μπόλικο βούτυρο τη φόρμα και την πασπαλίζουμε με αρκετό αλεύρι (πρέπει να είναι πάρα πολύ βουτυρωμένη για να κρατήσει το σχήμα της και πολύ αλευρωμένη).

Ο φιλόσοφος Αντισθένης απέφευγε να συζητεί με οποιονδήποτε πήγαινε να του πιάσει κουβέντα για σοβαρά θέματα. Κάποτε, ένας άσχετος ανίδεος που παραβρέθηκε σε μια τέτοια σοβαρή συζήτηση, θέλησε να πάρει κι αυτός μέρος.
