Egypt to host World Championship Freedive Competition

Egypt is set to host the 5th AIDA Freediving Team World Championship in the Red Sea this year.Proposed Dates: November 1-12, 2006

Bubbles for Tourism Services in association with AIDA-Egypt have won the bid to organize and host the 2006 Freediving Championship, the first time such a competition will be held in Africa.

According to Yehia M. Safwat, director of Bubbles for Tourism Services and president of AIDA-Egypt, the event also marks the first time the great performances from the freediving competitors will be televised live. This will not only be achieved through advanced underwater technology, but because of the clarity and beauty of the Red Sea waters.

Due to unprecedented support by freedivin

g athletes for Egypt to host the world championship, its ideal geographical location and the beautiful Red Sea environment, a record turnout is expected. In addition, because of the increased depth freedivers are reaching over the past years, an increased number of safety freedivers and technical scuba divers is also anticipated while scientists and doctors from all over the world will be present, for the first time, to gather data for scientific research.

Note: The impressive dive by Patrick Musimu in the recent world record freedive attempt, when Musimu crossed the 200 meter mark in the ‘No Limits Category (Sled)’, was sadly not officially ratified as a freediving world record by AIDA-International or any other freediving federation or association.


Interviews with Yehia M. Safwat may be arranged through the Egyptian Tourism Federation.

Oldest wooden statues found in Egypt

Archeologists in Egypt have unearthed two 5,000-year-old wooden statues, complete with gold wrapping paper, believed to be the oldest such artefacts ever found, the team said.

The statues, which depict two nude men with precious stones around their eyes, were found by a Polish team in the northern Nile Delta region of Daqahliya, said a statement by chief archaeologist Krzysztof Cialowicz.

The effigies are believed to date from Egypt's predynastic era (3,700-3,200 BC), before Egypt started to unify under the pharaohs.

Cialowicz said his team had also found remnants of gold-coated paper that experts said was used to wrap the wooden statues, believed to be the oldest such artefacts discovered to date.

Besides the statues, one around 75 centimetres (30 inches) tall and the other around 40 (16 inches) centimetres, the team has found warehouses and tombs in the same Tel al-Farkha area, said the statement issued by the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities.

Cialowicz's team has been excavating the area since 1998 and has found around 60 other statues, mostly of hippopotami and other animals.

Body & Soul

Lunchtime Renewal

For many, lunch is little more than an imperceptible blip on the screen of an average workday. While you may fear that taking a break means sacrificing your productivity, it's quite the opposite. Research shows that when you skip lunch, performance scores plunge. But you don't need to take a 90-minute yoga class or a leisurely lunch to reap the benefits of an active respite from work. Short breaks can help increase overall energy and boost productivity. With that in mind, we've put together a quick, simple plan you can easily incorporate into your lunch hour—and still have time to eat. Making it a regular part of your day will help reduce stress and release tension and, most important, help you let go of your morning and embrace your afternoon.

All-Day Energy Tips

Energy boosters don't need to be confined to lunchtime, says author and energy coach Jon Gordon. Here are just a few of his ideas for picking up the pace.

Chair squats. With feet just a little wider than body-width apart and arms at your sides, start to sit down on your chair, but stop a few inches above the seat. Stand up and repeat. Be careful not to lean too far forward. Repeat 10 times. Once that feels easy, increase to 20 repetitions.

Take a peppermint break. Peppermint can boost mood and motivation. Try a cup of peppermint tea, spray an herbal mint spritzer in your office, or dab some diluted essential oil on your wrists or temples to cool and revive you.

Drink cold water. Sipping some cold water can be the internal equivalent of a cold shower, giving your body a wake-up call.

Five minutes of silence. Cut stress off at the pass by simply halting. Sit for five minutes and do nothing but listen to your breath. Create that separation once or twice a day so that you don't get sucked into—and worn out by—your work.

Parents & Kids

Getting Along with Brothers and Sisters
In a house with more than one kid, there are bound to be some problems. Brothers and sisters borrow stuff, and don't always return it in top condition. Younger kids sometimes feel like the older kids get to do whatever they want. Older brothers and sisters think that the baby of the family gets more attention. These are typical problems found throughout the ages, everywhere in the world.
When brothers and sisters don't get along, it's called sibling rivalry (say: sih-bling rye-vul-ree). A sibling is a brother or sister and rivalry means competition. It's normal, but too much competition can make for an unhappy home life. Let's talk about getting along with brothers and sisters. They're not so bad, are they?

The Green-Eyed Monster
Have you ever heard of the green-eyed monster called jealousy? Sometimes brothers and sisters are jealous of one another. For instance, if your sister always does well at school, it may be frustrating for you, especially if your grades are lower.

Although you're probably proud of your sibling or siblings, it's normal to be a little jealous, too. It may make you feel better to focus more on doing your own personal best, rather than comparing yourself to a brother or sister.

All kids want attention from their parents, but sometimes you need to take turns. If you're feeling ignored or like your sibling is always in the spotlight, talk to your mom or dad. If a parent knows you're feeling left out, together you can figure out ways to help you feel better again.

Don't Lose Your Cool
Sometimes when you're jealous and frustrated, it's easy to lose your temper. Try to follow these tips to avoid getting into a fight with your brother or sister:

  • Take a deep breath and think a bit. Try to figure out if you are angry with the person or just frustrated with the situation.
  • Remind yourself that you have special talents. Your sister may have won an art contest, but you might be better at basketball, or math, or singing. Eight-year-old Marisa says her brother "always wins running races, but I always get gold stars for good homework grades and that makes me feel better."
  • Try to congratulate your siblings on their achievements and share their happiness. If you do this for them, they'll be more likely to do it for you.

Future Friends

It may be hard to believe now, but your brother or sister may turn out to be your best friend someday. Many brothers and sisters fight and compete with each other while growing up but become very close when they get older. As you grow up, your friends might change, but your family is your family forever.
