Race to save coral reefs from scuba divers

Red Sea environment

What's new
 
Red-Sea-Environment
Diver on Corals

A giant artificial coral reef is being built in the Red Sea in a move to protect natural reefs from destruction - without banning scuba divers.

An estimated 50% to 70% of the Red Sea's reefs have already been destroyed in Israel, Jordan and Egypt.

Divers are the main culprits as they flock to the biodiverse region in large numbers and accidentally knock the coral or create a disturbance with their flippers and diving boats.

Dr Nadav Shashar, a marine biologist at the National Centre for Mariculture, is supervising the pioneering project.

He admitted: "I have well over 1,000 hours underwater and by mistake every once in a while I also break the coral."

Israeli and Jordanian scientists are working together to reverse the destruction of the reefs.

The fruit of their efforts lies a few hundred metres off the coast in the Israeli resort town of Eilat.

Ismaili filed Al Ahly complaint

Egypt

Sport News
 
EFA
EFA

CAIRO: Ismaili have filed a complaint to the Egyptian Football Association, protesting Al Ahly fans' behavior during the 1–1 league draw on Thursday.

"We decided to complain after Al Ahly fans chanted abusive words against Chairman Yehia Al-Koumi during the match," Ismaili spokesman Abdel Rahman Anous told FilGoal.com on Saturday.

"Their spectators also set off fireworks and caused damages in the stands while Ismaili fans perfectly behaved."

Despite Anous' assertion that Ismaili fans kept their demeanor, Al Ahly claimed they have damaged the team's bus after the match.

"Their accusations are untrue," Anous added.

The latest row is likely to intensify the rivalry between both sides, who are indirectly involved in Hosni Abd-Rabou's transfer saga.

Strasbourg insist that they own the midfielder's contract, while Ismaili claim they bought him from the French side.

Al Ahly previously announced that they reached an agreement with Strasbourg that will see Abd-Rabou join the Red Devils.

The case is being investigated by Fifa.

Honeymoon with guaranteed sunshine

El Gouna

News
El Gouna

El Gouna

Nestled between sienna mountains and the azure waters of the Red Sea, El Gouna, the Red Sea’s Premier Leisure Destination, offers an idyllic retreat for honeymooners. Offering year round average temperatures of around 27?C, the resort offers guaranteed sunshine as well as a host of activities to ensure honeymooners can enjoy as quiet or active a stay as they prefer.

For those wanting a honeymoon with a difference, many couples enjoy taking the opportunity to learn a new activity together. With this in mind, El Gouna offers a variety of different pursuits which lend themselves perfectly to this. Examples include: learning dive at one of the resort’s many dive centres, in order to fully appreciate the under-water beauty offered by the Red Sea; learning to kite-surf at the World’s largest kite-surfing centre; or learning to water-ski at Egypt’s only professional water-skiing centre; also located at the resort.

For visitors wanting action on dry land rather than water, El Gouna offers fantastic quad biking or camel safaris into the desert. Travelling into the canyons behind the resort, the scenery offers breathtaking views over the desert plain and absolute silence. Special late afternoon excursions are also available so couples can the view the spectacular sunset together before travelling back to the resort by headlight.

Red Sea Beaches
Safaga Beach Club
Safaga Beach Club

For the growing number of those who choose to spend their Red Sea holidays in small downtown hotels or in rented flats or houses which most likely don't have direct access to a beach, there is a number of nice public beaches open all year round. Each week we will present u one of the most popular ones.

Safaga Beach Club
On the south side of Safaga the Safaga Beach Club offers a perfect place for relaxation for holiday makers and residents alike. With the laid back atmosphere, full bar service and restaurant and far away from the hustle bustle of down town Hurghada it is worth the 30 minute drive to visit this haven. Purpose built as a beach club there is no entry fee but there is a minimum charge of LE 50 (spent at the bar/restaurant) and this allows the use of sunbeds, umbrellas and a towel and other facilities including showers and toilets. The snorkeling is fantastic and equipment is available from Emperor Divers who are on site for all snorkelling and diving activities.

Amitabh - favorite actor of Egyptians
Egypt
Feature Article
Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan

Celina Jaitley who has been made the Brand Ambassador of Egypt by the Egyptian Board, says that Bollywood mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan is the favourite actor of the local people.

In a release in Mumbai, Celina also said the Egyptians are also big fans of Bollywood films.

According to the release, Celina made a trip down to Cairo to see the dynamic metropolis, which is also the largest city in the Middle East. This also happens to be her first trip to Egypt.

“I was not sure how popular our Bollywood films were there. But to my surprise, they seemed to be big fans of our movies and Amitabh Bachchan happened to be their favourite actor. Most of them wanted to know if I had acted with Mr Bachchan and asked me all sorts of questions about him,” she said.

20-Minute Kite

This stunningly simple kite design can be made within only 20 minutes.

parents & kids
Kite

20-Minute Kite

What you will need:

1. 1 sheet of 8 1/2-by-11-inch brightly colored paper
2. Ruler
3. Pencil
4. 3/4-inch masking or clear tape
5. Wire snips
6. Thin bamboo skewer (such as used for kebabs)
7. Plastic surveyor's tape in a bright color
8. Hole punch
9. 10 feet of string (or more, if flying clear of hazards)
10. Small piece of cardboard

How to make it:

1. Fold the sheet of paper in half widthwise. Use a ruler and pencil to measure and draw a diagonal line, as indicated.
Place the ruler against the line and crease the paper along it.

2. Fold back the top layer of paper and tape along the fold line. Trim any excess tape.

3. Using wire snips, trim the bamboo skewer to 8 inches in length. Position the skewer as a brace across the top back of the kite and firmly tape it down.

4. Cut a 6-foot kite tail from the surveyor's tape. Tape it to the rear edge of the kite. Next, flip the kite over and fold the flap (to which you'll tie the string) back and forth until it stands straight up .

5. Fold a small piece of tape over the edge of the flap about 3 inches from the top. Punch a hole through the tape 1/4 inch in from the folded edge. Tie one end of the string through the hole.

6. To make a string winder, tie the other end of the string around the middle of the cardboard, securing it with a strip of tape. Wind on the rest of the string, and you're ready to fly!

Peppermint

Peppermint

While peppermint leaves are available throughout the year, they are especially good in warm weather when they can give a burst of cool flavor to a summery salad or beverage.

Peppermint has greenish-purple lance-shaped leaves while the rounder leaves of spearmint are more of a grayish green color. The taste of both peppermint and spearmint bear a flavor that can be described as a cross between pepper and chlorophyll, with peppermint being a bit stronger and spearmint being a little more cool and subtle.

Health Benefits

In the world of health research, randomized controlled trials have repeatedly shown the ability of peppermint oil to relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, including indigestion, dyspepsia, and colonic muscle spasms. These healing properties of peppermint are apparently related to its smooth muscle relaxing ability.
