Italcementi's Italgen to develop a wind farm on the Red Sea coast

Red Sea environment

What's new
 
Italcementi
The Italcementi Group

The Italcementi Group, through its subsidiary Italgen, has signed a memorandum of understanding in Cairo with the Ministry for Energy and Electricity aimed at the possibility to create a major wind farm located in the district of Gabal El Zeit, on the Red Sea coast. The memorandum is part of the energy policy plan issued by the Egyptian government to support foreign investments for the development of renewable energies, first of all wind and solar energy.

Italcementi, within the framework of the positive relationships of collaboration between Italy and Egypt, has been closely and actively working with the Ministry for Electricity and Energy for some time to identify a feasibility plan for international investments in the wind sector, in accordance with the Egyptian Government’s Development Plan of ensuring at least 20% of electrical power will be generated by renewable sources by 2020.

Pan-Arab Games

The football gold medal won on Sunday was Egypt's last medal in the event, increasing its already record haul to an overall 344 medals -- 148 gold, 102 silver and 94 bronze. Far behind, Tunisia finished in second place with an overall 147 medals -- 63 gold, 34 silver and 50 bronze medals. Algeria was third with 32 gold, 45 silver and 52 bronze medals for 129 medals.

Four out of the 22 participating countries did not win a medal.

The Egyptian football team beat Saudi Arabia 2-1 in the last match of the tournament to win the gold medal. Hossam Ghali opened the scoring for Egypt in the first half after Saudi player Reda Tukar was given the red card for bringing down Mohamed Abou-Treika. Emad Meteb, the tournament's top scorer with five goals, added Egypt's second with only one minute to go before the end of the first half. Both goals were outside gems.

With British cinema being the guest of honor this year, the British movie "Death at a Funeral" kicked off the 31st Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF) at Cairo Opera House Tuesday evening.

More than 160 movies from 55 countries are competing for twelve prizes, including the "Golden Pyramid for the best film" and the " Silver Pyramid for the special jury prize."

During the 11-day festival, the organizer will hold five specialized seminars, tackling European support funds, the future of digital cinema in Egypt, relationship between television and cinema industry, intellectual property rights and marketing Arab films at international festivals.

The 31st CIFF will also celebrate the 100th anniversary of Egyptian cinema.

Red Sea Beaches
Hurghada
Red Sea Beaches
 
Giftun
Giftun Island

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 are a number of nice public beaches open all year round. Each week we will present u one of the most popular ones.

Giftun Island & Mahmya Beach
You cannot visit Hurghada without taking the trip to Giftun Island. This idyllic reef sand island is completely enclosed by a beautiful garden of vibrant corals and exotic marine life. Here, you can soak up the glorious Egyptian sunshine on the sand beach or swim in the crystal clear waters. The reef is home to vibrant corals, a seemingly infinite number of brightly colourful tropical fish, and if you are lucky you may even see rays, turtles and dolphins.

Snorkeling is the best way to see the reef in all its glory and all the necessary equipment is provided free of charge. You will also have the the chance to sail to other nearby coral islands where you can snorkel and swim.

Article

Parsley

Parsley

The delicious and vibrant taste and wonderful healing properties of parsley are often ignored in its popular role as a table garnish. Highly nutritious, parsley can be found year round in your local supermarket.

Parsley is the world's most popular herb. It derives its name from the Greek word meaning "rock celery" (parsley is a relative to celery). It is a biennial plant that will return to the garden year after year once it is established.

Health Benefits

A sprig of parsley can provide much more than a decoration on your plate. Parsley contains two types of unusual components that provide unique health benefits. The first type is volatile oil components-including myristicin, limonene, eugenol, and alpha-thujene. The second type is flavonoids-including apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol, and luteolin.
