Posted to the web December 15, 2005

A new hospital in the Southern Red Sea region built at a cost of 9 million Nakfa has began rendering service, It is equipped with 25 rooms that will predominantly give service in mother and child caring as well as caring for mothers prior and after delivery. In addition, the hospital will provide vaccination to children and pregnant mothers, as well as minor and major surgery, X-ray, physiotherapy and other medical services.

The Administrator of the Southern Red Sea region, Ms. Tsigereda Woldegiorgis, inaugurated the hospital. She stated that the new hospital would further promote and facilitate mother and child health service.

Meanwhile, a seminar was conducted in the region on mother and child safety. Speaking at the seminar, the Chairperson of the National Union of Eritrean Women (NUEW), Ms. Leul Gebreab, noted that the number of mothers who die during traditional delivery is quite high. The NUEW Chairperson further underlined the need to step up campaigns on promoting the awareness of mothers so as to safely undergo delivery in health centers.

New Year's Eve - Opening Parties

MINISTRY OF SOUND goes to the Red Sea

Ministry of Sound, the world’s leading music dance brand, is set to expand its growing international club presence via a licensing deal in Egypt. The licensees are Hurghada’s Papa’s Beach Club and Liquid Lounge, owned by Paul Evans. The two venues will be renamed ‘The Beach and ‘The Bar’, under the Ministry of Sound Red Sea umbrella. The re-branded venues are set to open their doors with two huge New Year’s parties on the 31st Dec 2005.

Naturally we are extremely excited about such an exciting venture “Ministry of Sound in Egypt is a great opportunity. We have fantastic brand recognition with locals and the young Europeans who holiday in Hurghada, and we know these venues will be hugely successful in the beautiful and exciting resort. The world’s leading club brand is now working with Paul Evans and his dedicated and professional team to make these Egypt’s hottest new night spots.” Commented Lucy Salisbury, Global Head of Licensing.

“Egypt is constantly expanding as a world-wide touristic destination, and working together with an energetic and dynamic company like Ministry Of Sound can only help drive this expansion forward. We can't wait to get started!” Says Paul Evans. But things don’t just stop there plans have been made for the future with various expansion programmes already being discussed into the rest of Egypt, and the brand is also looking at deals involving Dubai, Las Vegas and the Far East.

The launch of the Ministry of Sound venues will also be supported by a nationwide UK competition for a holiday for 4 to coincide with the New Year party. The prize includes 4 return flights and a villa for a week in Hurghada on the Red Sea; take a look at our competition section for the opportunity to win this fantastic holiday for you and your mates!!




So don't open any mails with subject: ...............

With the holiday season upon us, we invariably also receive a much higher percentage of spam emails.
Educate yourself! Do not believe everything you read! Do not forward emails to your entire address book! WHY?

What should we do when a hoax message is received? Do we succumb to potentially misguided helpfulness and forward it on as suggested? Many fall into the "just-in-case" trap. They forward the email to everyone in their address book, despite their misgivings or doubt, just in case it might be true. This "just-in-case" forwarding is damaging. So what should we do?

  • Take a time out. If the e-mail sounds like a hoax, it probably is. Do not instantly react to save the world. You can be certain, if it's a real threat, the news media and legitimate antivirus sources will publish all the necessary alerts.
  • Check out the facts. The Hoax Information Center provides a comprehensive list of the most common hoaxes.
  • If you are in an enterprise, ask your system administrator to verify its accuracy.
  • Try a simple search on a site such as Google to see what information there is about it.
  • When in doubt, don't sent it out.

If you still need further reason to refrain from forwarding these fakes, consider this: hoax forwarding is the hallmark behavior of a naive and gullible user. Is that really how you want to be perceived?

History of the New Year
A move from March to January

The celebration of the new year on January 1st is a relatively new phenomenon. The earliest recording of a new year celebration is believed to have been in Mesopotamia, c. 2000 B.C. and was celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox, in mid-March. A variety of other dates tied to the seasons were also used by various ancient cultures. The Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice.

Early Roman Calendar: March 1st Rings in the New Year
The early Roman calendar designated March 1 as the new year. The calendar had just ten months, beginning with March. That the new year once began with the month of March is still reflected in some of the names of the months. September through December, our ninth through twelfth months, were originally positioned as the seventh through tenth months (septem is Latin for “seven,” octo is “eight,” novem is “nine,” and decem is “ten”).

January Joins the Calendar
The first time the new year was celebrated on January 1st was in Rome in 153 B.C. (In fact, the month of January did not even exist until around 700 B.C., when the second king of Rome, Numa Pontilius, added the months of January and February.) The new year was moved from March to January because that was the beginning of the civil year, the month that the two newly elected Roman consuls—the highest officials in the Roman republic—began their one-year tenure. But this new year date was not always strictly and widely observed, and the new year was still sometimes celebrated on March 1.

Julian Calendar: January 1st Officially Instituted as the New Year
In 46 B.C. Julius Caesar introduced a new, solar-based calendar that was a vast improvement on the ancient Roman calendar, which was a lunar system that had become wildly inaccurate over the years. The Julian calendar decreed that the new year would occur with January 1, and within the Roman world, January 1 became the consistently observed start of the new year.

Middle Ages: January 1st Abolished
In medieval Europe, however, the celebrations accompanying the new year were considered pagan and unchristian like, and in 567 the Council of Tours abolished January 1 as the beginning of the year. At various times and in various places throughout medieval Christian Europe, the new year was celebrated on Dec. 25, the birth of Jesus; March 1; March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation; and Easter.

Gregorian Calendar: January 1st Restored
In 1582, the Gregorian calendar reform restored January 1 as new year's day. Although most Catholic countries adopted the Gregorian calendar almost immediately, it was only gradually adopted among Protestant countries. The British, for example, did not adopt the reformed calendar until 1752. Until then, the British Empire—and their American colonies—still celebrated the new year in March.

2 pkg. active dry yeast
1 c. warm water (105-115 degree)
2/3 c. plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar, divided
1 c. warmed milk
2/3 c. butter
2 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
7-8 c. all-purpose flour, or more if needed


1 c. melted butter, divided (2 sticks)
1 3/4 c. granulated sugar, divided
3 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 c. chopped walnuts, optional
1 1/2 c. raisins, optional

Creamy Glaze:

2/3 c. melted butter (1 stick plus 2 tbsp.)
4 c. powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4-8 tbsp. hot water


In a small bowl mix together warm water, yeast and sugar and set aside. In a large bowl, mix milk, remaining 2/3 cup sugar, melted butter, salt and eggs; stir well and add yeast mixture. Add half the flour and beat until smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour until dough is slightly stiff (dough will be sticky).

Turn out onto a well-floured board; knead 5 - 10 minutes. Place in well-buttered glass or plastic bowl, cover and let rise in warm place, free from drafts, until doubled in bulk, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

When doubled, punch down dough and let rest 5 minutes. Roll out on floured surface into a 15 x 20 inch rectangle.

To prepare filling: Spread dough with 1/2 cup melted butter. Mix together 1 1/2 cups sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over buttered dough. Sprinkle with walnuts and raisins, if desired.

Roll up jellyroll-fashion and pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 to 15 slices. Coat bottom of a 13-by-9-inch baking pan and a 8-inch square pan with remaining 1/2 cup melted butter, then sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in pans. Let rise in warm place until dough is doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until rolls are nicely browned. Cool rolls slightly.

To prepare glaze: Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla; add hot water 1 Tbsp. at a time until glaze reaches desired spreading consistency. Spread over slightly cooled rolls.

Just like the ones in the mall!
