LJUBLJANA, Slovenia - Former Slovenia Prime Minister Borut Pahor won the presidential election Sunday, calling for unity in the tiny EU nation where discontent has been mounting with government budget cuts and other austerity measures designed to avoid a bailout. "There is a way out and we must find it together," Pahor said in his victory speech. "We must not turn against each other. " Sunday's vote came just days after anti-austerity protests in Ljubljana, the capital, erupted into clashes that left 15 people injured, triggering fears this normally placid Alpine nation of two million was heading into instability.

Sixers' Andre Iguodala is keeping an exclusive diary for the Daily News at the World Championships. The latest entry comes after Team USA's 99-77 win over Slovenia in a Group B preliminary game played before a pro-Slovenia crowd. The U.S. team is now 2-0 and faces Brazil today (2:30 p.m., ESPN). Iguodala had 11 points against Slovenia on 5-for-7 shooting, with four rebounds and two assists.     I think their fans were great. It was good that we got that type of crowd.

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia - We arrived by train after dark, and despite the late hour, we were eager to begin exploring the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. It was only a five-minute stroll, under the luminescent glow of a harvest moon, to reach Prešernov Square - five minutes during which we felt we had stepped into the pages of a fairy tale. With a magical castle perched overhead and the city center encircled by cotton-candy-colored buildings designed in the gaudy Vienna Succession style, as though dressed for a ball, Ljubljana sets the tone for the entire country.

The Tria cafes remain among the city's best destinations to go exploring the most unfamiliar reaches of the wine world. And my most recent Tria-inspired vino-fatuation is the Austrian grape called Blaufränkisch, a thick-skinned and late-ripening red (also called Lemberger, which has been used with some success in Pennsylvania) that has the weight of pinot noir, lush fruit notes, an earthy framework, and mouthwatering acidity that's versatile with food. Of course, for additional wonk factor, Tria's Blaufränkisch comes from Kobal, a biodynamic vineyard in Slovenia, which Tria wine director Michael McCaulley says is lighter than some Austrian counterparts, with a lingering spice that tastes like paprika.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - As the sun set over Johannesburg's Ellis Park on Friday, the U.S. Soccer team was inside, trying furiously to keep its World Cup dreams from going dark.

BEING LUCKY is better than being good only if you take advantage of your fortune. So now that goalie Rob Green is being cited in England as committing the biggest blunder against the United States since Charles Cornwallis allowed the British army to get bottled up at Yorktown, what's next? The U.S. national team got a gift Saturday when Green fumbled what should have been an easily saved shot from midfielder Clint Dempsey. Green's gaffe allowed the United States to get a surprising 1-1 draw in its 2010 World Cup opener.

People often ask us how we manage to continue our travels for extended periods. If you're not familiar with our story, in 2011 we quit our jobs, sold our house, and gave away most of our possessions to travel around the world for what we thought would be a year. However, after learning to live much more simply on the road, we have stretched our career break into a lifestyle change and are still traveling full-time. The key to long-term travel is keeping costs down and approaching the journey differently from the way you might that annual one- or two-week vacation.

THOUGH Philadelphia's Julia Cohen lost yesterday in qualifying for the U.S. Open, she still has a chance to make the main draw of the Grand Slam event that opens Monday in New York. Cohen, 23, who grew up in the Art Museum area, fell to Italy's Camila Giorgi, 6-1, 6-0, yesterday, but could make the main draw as a "lucky loser. " The tournament will name its choice tomorrow. There is an extra opening in the field this year, because Maria Sharapova pulled out with bursitis in her right shoulder.

MIAMI - Danny Green smiled as he stepped behind the interview podium and a crowd of reporters gathered around him to talk about the NBA Finals. On a San Antonio Spurs team that steps into the spotlight reluctantly, and occasionally petulantly, Green seems only too happy to entertain questions and relay his story. No one wanted to talk to him in Slovenia. There were rarely demands for interviews when he was playing in Reno or Austin. His phone rarely rang after he was cut first by Cleveland and twice was cast off by these Spurs.

BRUSSELS, Belgium - European finance ministers met Monday to discuss the economic plans of Italy's new government and take a closer look at Slovenia's precarious financial situation - and whether it could become the bloc's sixth nation to require a bailout. The ministers from the 17 countries using the euro currency were also discussing the outlook for Portugal, Greece, and Cyprus, which have already received emergency loan programs and must meet tough conditions. The group's finance ministers approved the next batch of 7.5 billion euros ($10 billion)

OVERALL CHAMPION Tina Maze , of Slovenia, beat Mikaela Shiffrin in a World Cup slalom in Ofterschwang, Germany, to overtake the American teenager in the discipline standings and close in on becoming the first woman to win five crystal globes in a season. Maze also got a piece of another record in a season when she has already broken several, equaling Austrian great Hermann Maier's mark of 22 World Cup podiums in 1999-2000. She earlier broke Maier's record for points in a season, and she extended her total to 2,254 with her 10th win. Shiffrin, 17, finished third, giving Maze a seven-point lead in the slalom standings going into Saturday's last race of the season.

Deadly quake hits Myanmar YANGON, Myanmar - A strong earthquake of magnitude-6.8 struck Myanmar on Sunday, collapsing a bridge and a gold mine, damaging several old Buddhist pagodas, and leaving as many as 12 people feared dead. A slow release of official information left the actual extent of the damage unclear after Sunday morning's strong quake. Myanmar's second-biggest city, Mandalay, reported no casualties or major damage. The nearest major population center to the main quake, Mandalay lies about 72 miles south of the quake's epicenter, near the town of Shwebo.
