Greece faces a rise of its bond yields because it does not have control over its monetary policy.
But the underlying problem, the original source of the problem, is the Greek government's unwillingness to control it's fiscal policy. If it had that control, it wouldn't have problems selling bond/securities in the first place.

Data wanting to be human is a big mistake in TNG. Why would anyone want to lose their faculties, then die, most likely in slow decline terminated by agony? Plainly, the robot is broken.
Data was walking through his life as a fašade of a real person, he could record events around him, but not experience them, as often stated Data couldn't emotional feel. At the risk of sounding harsh toward a character I truly like, Data was dead on the inside, and he knew it.
