Egypt says Internet back to normal in 10 days

Cut cable
Cut cable

Internet services in Egypt will not be restored to normal for at least 10 days after two undersea cables were cut earlier this week, causing severe disruptions, the telecommunications ministry said on Saturday.

The cable cuts near Egypt disrupted Web access in parts of the Middle East and Asia.

The ministry said it expected work to repair the cables in the Mediterranean Sea to start on Tuesday and take several days.

"Thus, the disorder in the Internet network would continue for a period that may not be less than 10 days," it said in a statement.

Egypt said about 55 percent of its Internet capacity had been restored. "This is expected to increase gradually," the statement added... Read more


Ships did not cut internet cable

No ships were present when two marine cables carrying much of the Middle East's internet traffic were severed, Egypt's Ministry of Communications has said, contrary to earlier speculation about the causes of the cut.

The ministry had originally stated that a ship dropping its anchor on the two key cables was most likely responsible for Wednesday's cut in service that robbed Egypt, Saudi Arabia and India of most of their internet connections.

"A marine transport committee investigated the traffic of ships in the area, 12 hours before and after the malfunction, where the cables are located to figure out the possibility of being cut by a passing vessel and found out there were no passing ships at that time," said the statement...

Sports: Egypt at full strength for first time

News
 
Egypt's national team
Egyptian national football team

Egypt will have a full-strength squad available for the first time when they continue the defence of their African Nations Cup title against Angola at the quarter-final stage in Kumasi on Monday.

Egypt coach Hassan Shehata has the pleasant dilemma of choosing among several options now that midfielder Mohamed Aboutrika has returned to full fitness.

Aboutrika has been used as a substitute in previous matches, coming on with a positive impact as Egypt finished top of Group C after their first three matches in Kumasi.

But Shehata will be hard-pressed to accommodate the Al Ahli player after the success of his midfield in the matches against Cameroon, Sudan and Zambia.
However, it is in defence that the coach is most concerned as Egypt come up against a highly-rated Angola attack.

"I wasn't happy with the defence, we need to work hard before the quarter-final," he told reporters this week.

Mohamed Zidan is expected to return in a three-man attack after being a substitute in Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Zambia.

Marine Life
Marine Life

Dr. Abdul Mohsen Al-Sufyani, a Saudi oceanographer, warned against the negative impact of undersea communication cables on marine life in Red Sea, adding that the cable could change marine atmosphere along red Sea coasts.

Sufyani is a member of a committee that has consulted with FLAG Telecom, the world’s largest undersea cable operator responsible for a majority of the world’s undersea telecommunications infrastructure on matters related to laying cable within Saudi territorial waters.

The committee has recommended that the so-called Fiberoptic Link Around the Globe (FLAG) be buried under the seabed.

Elissa

Muneer Al Waseemi, head of the Egyptian Musician Union, has denied rumors that he has banned Lebanese singer Elissa from entering Egypt and performing in it. Muneer stressed that the news is merely a rumor and that he has never received any complaints against the singer to take such actions.

Muneer added that such a decision cannot be taken unless he receives an official complaint against someone and an investigation is done, especially since he insists on carrying out his responsibilities according to regulations.

Rocketing tourism and investment in Egypt’s key resorts

Egypt's Resort
Egypt's Resort

A growing economy, investor incentives and superb holiday property at low prices makes Egypt a tempting market for many a shrewd investor. The Red Sea Coast offers a promising real estate market still in its infancy which is expected to spur on tourism, in line with government targets.

As demand for investment property in emerging markets continues to soar despite negative press on the Credit Crunch, many of today’s overseas investors are not phased. They are faced with an overwhelming choice of product but, with a little insight, it is not hard to see why property in Egypt has won itself a rightful place in eye of the hungry investor...

Egypt’s economy has taken off in the last few years, mainly due to new government initiatives and a clear insight into the benefits of foreign investment. Legislation passed in 2004 now makes it possible for non-Egyptians to own, sell and let property freely. An annual GDP growth of 7% the ongoing consolidation of the banking sector and a reduction and simplification of both taxes and Customs tariffs, are all going a long way to improve the prospects for Egypt as a promising investment location.

Aswan
Aswan

Aswan

The town Aswan (ancient Greek Syene) in Upper Egypt, celebrated for its cleanliness, lies in latitude 24° 5 north below the First Cataract. Situated on the east bank of the Nile, partly on low ground and partly on a hill, it is a much favored winter resort thanks to its equable dry and warm climate and its sand baths, which are efficacious in the treatment of diseases of the joints. Aswan, the
capital of Egypt's most southerly governorate and the terminus of the railroad line along the Nile Valley, has a university which is still in course of development. As a result of the construction of the High Dam farther up the valley Aswan is now becoming one of the country's principal industrial centers (steel, nitrogen, electric power).

At Aswan the Nile divides into several arms, separated by large granite rocks and islands, in particular the island of Elephantine. There is only a narrow strip of cultivable land, supporting almost nothing but date-palms; the dates produced here are considered the best in Egypt. The Southern Cross constellation is visible here in January about 3 a.m., in April about 10 p.m.

Kidney beans
Nutrition Facts

Kidney Beans

Kidney Beans

Both dried and canned kidney beans are available throughout the year. Dried beans are generally available in prepackaged containers as well as in bulk bins.

True to their name, these popular beans are kidney shaped and are especially good in simmered dishes where they absorb the flavors of seasonings and the other foods with which they are cooked.

Health Benefits

Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.
