    The Titanomachy then truly began. The war for the ruling of the heavens begins when Zeus gives Kronos a potion (in some other stories mustard and wine) that causes him to throw up the children. Then Zeus and his brothers and sisters fight back. They fight for ten long years. No one had been able to win. The strengths and skills were too similar. Gaea was on the Olympian side and turned the tables with a little advice. Gaea tells the Olympians about the immortal beings trapped in Tartarus. The Giants and Cyclopes join the Olympians. Thanking them for releasing them from the depths, they gave the Olympians weapons. They gave Zeus the almighty and famous thunderbolt; they gave Poseidon a three-pronged spear called the trident, and Hades the infamous magic helm of invisibility. With their weapons they finally overwhelm the titans and win the battle. They lock them up in Tartarus and the ruling of the world is divided into three parts. Zeus rules the heavens, Poseidon rules the earth, and Hades gets the underworld.

    The myth of the Titanomachy is an interesting story in Greek mythology. It one of the first stories and it tells how the Olympians took over.

    GREEK DEBT CRISIS
    By: Kyle Welker
    The Greek public debt crisis happened because of bad budget decisions and too much public spending by officials and agencies in the Greek government. Greece had its debt crisis occur after the government revised its deficit (when spending exceeds total income) prediction of 3.7% in early 2009 and 6% in September 2009, to 12.7% of Gross domestic product (GDP). Some estimates predict the Greek debt will reach 150 percent of GDP in the near future.
    Within the next 5 years Greece has a 98% chance of defaulting on its debt (can’t pay its bills any longer). The former Greece Prime Minister, George Papandreou, had continually let down his people by proposing several unsuccessful debt plans, and thus steadily lost support as Prime Minister. The current Prime Minister, Lucas Papademos, inherited the debt crisis and has had to try and gain control of the current situation by making many unfavorable spending cuts. This has made him very unpopular with Greek citizens.
