Spot Local releases "Tagging"

“Tags” or “Tagging” is a new technique that a lot of websites are using now as a part of that revolution, happened in web generation long time ago named as... Web 2.0

In a very simple way, to TAG something … is to give it a Label … That’s it.

Do you remember those old days when we used to organize our files in chunks; and give each folder a “Label” or a name, so we can categorize our files to refer to them back again easily??! It’s the same thing exactly.

You give anything - and I mean anything – labels or “Tags” to remind you and to be able to search and find it back again. After a long time, you’ll find everything categorized based on those tags you have added; and you’ll find it easier for you, if you have just clicked on a tag, to see a list of all your files or items that have been tagged with that name.

Hamza back for Ahly game, Emam left out
Gamal Hamza
Gamal Hamza

Gamal Hamza has been named in Zamalek’s 18-man squad for the Cairo derby on Monday while Skipper Hazem Emam and veteran left-back Tarek Al-Sayed were dropped from the list.

Hamza was called up after resolving his financial dispute with the club. He will replace Mostafa Gaafar who misses the game due to an injury.

Emam and Al-Sayed were left out since the arrival of Dutch coach Ruud Krol and their omission from the anticipated clash is likely to raise doubts over their future with Zamalek.

Jordanian left-back Khaled Saad, who has just made one appearance as a substitute after joining Zamalek from Faisali in the close season, has been once again left out of the team's squad.

Defender Wissem El-Abdi has returned to the squad after he was omitted from the previous league game against Enppi due to showing up late after fulfilling international duty with Tunisia.

Youngsters Sherif Ashraf and Mohamed Ibrahim have been also named.

Egypt: How bazaar

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

Feature Article
Nile trip

Nile trip by felucca boat

Continued from last weeks issue. click here to read no 6 of "When visiting Egypt, there are ten things you absolutely must do."

7. Cruise the Nile
A trip down the world's longest river will allow you to catch a glimpse of the agricultural life, which is concentrated along its lush banks. The Nile will also take you to some of Egypt's most fascinating ancient sites, including the Valley of the Kings (see below) across from Luxor, and Kom Ombo near Aswan. The latter is the only Egyptian temple dedicated to more than one god - the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Horus.

If you are the adventurous type and/or on a tight budget, consider travelling by local felucca boat. Those who like their spot of luxury, own bathroom and privacy (still at a very affordable rate) are better off booking a trip on one of the larger cruise boats.

No. 8 on the list of things you absolutely must do in Egypt will follow next week.

The Strait of Tiran
The Strait of Tiran

The Strait of Tiran is among the finest diving sites in the Red Sea. It lies at the mouth of the Gulf of Aqaba. There are four main coral reefs in this region; Jackson Reef, Woodhouse Reef, Thomas Reef and Gordon Reef. All named after the English officers who drew the first marine map of this region. This area is full of infinite number of corals, reef and pelagic.

Jackson Reef: is located in the northernmost reef in Tiran and is known for its wrecks. Kormoran; for instance, a German ship which sank in 1984, is about 80 meters long and easily reached by scuba divers. Turtles and sharks could be observed. This area is also suitable for snorkeling.

Woodhouse reef: located between Thomas Reef and Jackson Reef is narrow and long. The site requires a drift dive and good weather to enjoy the dive. The water in this area is clear and offers beautiful sights of sea turtles, jackfish and many corals; moreover, it is one of the best sites to observe sharks.

Thomas Reef: this part requires drift diving. It has no mooring points and it is characterized with many caves and crevices.

Gordon Reef: the diving in this spot is safe as there is fixed mooring sheltered from the wind. This site is known for the wreck of the Lovilla (or Lullia) which sank in 1981. It is a good place for snorkeling.

Chantal Chamandy

Few were familiar with the name Chantal Chamandy until few weeks ago when torrents of ads, heavy media coverage and one outstanding performance at the Giza Pyramids quickly transformed her into a household name.

With a high-octane voice and a knack for throwing crowd-pleasing performances; Chamandy charmed Cairo with an amazing concert that featured the Cairo Opera Symphony, the Egyptian National Ballet Company, an Egyptian marching band, Tanoura dancers and Darbouka drum band in front of nearly 5,000 attendants.

By both organizers and audiences’ admission, Chamandy’s concert was the most successful and organized show the Pyramids has witnessed thus far. The grand lighting effects, striking choreography and sheer energy came together in a performance that put the Pyramids and the Sphinx in a dramatic context.

Quick Facts About the Red more

We invite you the subscribers to leave your comments.

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.

This project is rated AVERAGE to do.

What you'll need:
1. Tissue paper
2. Scissors
3. Crayons
4. Pipe cleaners

How to make it:

1. Cut eight 3 1/2-inch squares out of the tissue paper

2. Using the side of a crayon, color along two opposite edges of each square.

3. Place one of the squares on a flat surface with the uncolored edges at the top and bottom. Starting at the top, fold the square as you would a paper fan. The pleats should be about a half inch wide. Fold the remaining squares using the same method.

4. For a stem, bend a pipe cleaner 1 1/2 inches from an end to form a hook. Stack the pleated squares (without unfolding them). Place the stack inside the hook and twist the hook end around the stem. Then, to open up the flower to full bloom, twist the petals a half turn near the stem.

Nutrition Facts


This wonderfully rich golden liquid is the miraculous product of honey bees and a naturally delicious alternative to white sugar. Although it is available throughout the year, it is an exceptional treat in the summer and fall when it has just been harvested and is at its freshest.

The fascinating process of making honey begins when the bees feast on flowers, collecting the flower nectar in their mouths. This nectar then mixes with special enzymes in the bees' saliva, an alchemical process that turns it into honey. The bees carry the honey back to the hive where they deposit it into the cells of the hive's walls. The fluttering of their wings provides the necessary ventilation to reduce the moisture's content making it ready for consumption.

Health Benefits

In addition to its reputation as Nature's nutritive sweetener, research also indicates that honey's unique composition makes it useful as an antimicrobial agent and antioxidant.
