This concept as yet is an untapped source of advertising on the internet which is now gaining momentum.

The idea of blogging has been around now for a couple of years the most popular sites being Myspace, Yahoo 360, Blogger and Facebook. Now corporate companies are building blogs aimed at attracting additional advertising for low revenue expenditure.

An external corporate blog is a publicly available weblog where company employees, teams, or spokespersons share their views. It is often used to announce new products and services (or the end of old products), to explain and clarify policies, or to react on public criticism on certain issues. It also allows a window to the company culture and is often treated more informally than traditional press releases, though a corporate blog often tries to accomplish similar goals as press releases do. In some corporate blogs, all posts go through a review before they're posted. Some corporate blogs, but not all, allow comments to be made to the posts.

External corporate blogs, by their very nature, are biased, though they can also offer a more honest and direct view than traditional communication channels. Nevertheless, they remain public relations tools.

New film to be produced

Egyptian producer Muhammad Al Najar nominated actors Yasmin Abdel Aziz and Khaled Abu Al Naja to be leading stars in the new film Marines. The film discusses the problems that face young men and girls who live in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

Sharm El Shaikh has its own and unique style of living. Many view it as a rich city where the people live in luxury, alongside many tourists from all over the world.

This will be the second film that Yasmin works on with the same producer Muhammad Al Najar. They both worked on another film called “Qalb Jari’” (Courageous Heart) with Egyptian singer/actor Mustafa Qamar and actor Hasan Husni. ‘Marines’ is written by Hafeth El Abyari and produced by Muhammad Al Najar.

Egypt: How bazaar

When visiting Egypt, there are ten things you absolutely must do.

cairo traffic

Cairo traffic

Continued from last weeks issue. click here to read no 5 of "When visiting Egypt, there are ten things you absolutely must do."

6. Dodge the traffic

Crossing a road in Egypt's two major cities - Cairo (16 million people) and Alexandria (5 million) - is every bit as safe as doing a somersault on a motorbike over a dungeon teeming with crocodiles. Supposedly, they have a three-lane system, but you're more likely to have at least five cars fighting for lane space, hooting ferociously, veering dangerously, running red traffic lights and putting dings into each other at high speed.

The only way to cross a road is by galloping across the moment you spy a gap or hoping a policeman is at hand to slow motorists down. It's lethal, and adrenaline junkies will love it.

No. 7 on the list of things you absolutely must do in Egypt will follow next week.

hermit crabs

Hermit crabs scuttle about the sea-floor using someone else's shell for a home. They always use empty shells and never kill the original occupant.

Some of the Dardanas species of Hermit crab stick sea anemones on their shells. This camoflauges the crab and the stinging cells of the anemone may protect the crab from predators such as octopus.

Egypt's Luxor offers WiMax access to visitors

World Network

World network

Egypt's ancient city of Luxor has become the latest spot to offer super high-speed WiMax wireless Internet technology, encouraging visitors to stay connected while they tour the city's Pharaonic temples.

The service was offered for sale on Saturday, covering Luxor's main tourist attractions including Luxor Temple, the Nile corniche and the historic Winter Palace hotel.

Foreign visitors and reporters joined the city's governor at a reception to mark the Wimax launch on Friday night at the Luxor Temple.

Dubbed "While in Egypt Stay Connected" and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the project to install Wimax in Luxor mainly targets the 3.5 million tourists who visit the city every year.

"One of the main aims is to change the perception of Egypt among foreigners as a country of sun, sands and temples only," said Nihal Soliman, a USAID marketing advisor.

The project was also launched in the Red Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh.

Freds Swim Academy
At what age can children learn to swim?

Aqua Tots 2 - 4 years

An article by Freds Swim Academy about

young children’s physical and mental ability to learn to swim

Physically children around the age of 3,5 to 4 years have the ability to swim, but most still lack the mental confidence. All kids have different physical and mental abilities; especially with boys the mental capability comes later (usually around 4,5 to 5,5 years), at which time they are then ready to swim.

Starting early with a swimming course for your child makes a lot of sense, therefore FREDS SWIM ACADEMY offers swimming courses for toddlers called ‘Aqua Tots’ (2 - 4 years). Using the unique SWIMTRAINER®, the toddlers experience freedom of movement with complete security and safety in the water. It allows the children space to explore and to find their own personality and ability.
3 to 4 year olds have indeed the ability to learn the correct breast stroke leg movement with good arm coordination.

The water is a new environment for many toddlers, it offers a great chance for them to explore themselves, also the water is very relaxing and soothing for the child so can help relieve any anxieties or aggression they may have.

Aqua Tots focuses on creating fun, positive experiences that will not
only help your toddler to develop physically but also emotionally, intellectually
and socially too, while equipping them with key swimming skills allowing each individual child to learn at their own pace and capability.

It offers an individual way to express themselves and develop. Each child’s progress is respected and positive encouragement is given frequently in a non competitive environment, this builds the child’s self confidence. Thus enabling the child to perform to their best ability, without being hindered or daunted by a fixed program.

We find that most children of this age respond very well in a once a week Aqua Tots course, but for those showing the ability to spend more time learning there is the twice a week Aqua Tots Plus class preparing them for the next stage of adding the arm movements to complete the correct breast stroke technique.

New swimming courses starting next week.

grapes

Grapes

The combination of crunchy texture and dry, sweet, tart flavor has made grapes an ever popular between meal snack as well as a refreshing addition to both fruit and vegetable salads. American varieties are available in September and October while European varieties are available year round.

Grapes are small round or oval berries that feature semi-translucent flesh encased by a smooth skin. Some contain edible seeds while others are seedless. Like blueberries, grapes are covered by a protective, whitish bloom. Grapes that are eaten as is or used in a recipe are called table grapes as opposed to wine grapes (used in viniculture) or raisin grapes (used to make dried fruit).

Grapes contain beneficial compounds called flavonoids, which are phytonutrients that give the vibrant purple color to grapes, grape juice and red wine; the stronger the color, the higher the concentration of flavonoids.
