Photographing nature: Photogenic dive sites

St John's Caves

Underwater expert Martin Edge selects his best spots for snapping the wonders of the deep

St John's Caves, Marsa Alam, South Red Sea

Red Sea diving has a world-class reputation and fortunately for UK divers it is the most convenient with regular flights into Sharm, Hurghada and Marsa Alam. My favourite photo site is St John's caves, which can only be accessed via a liveaboard dive boat and consist of a honeycomb of shallow (8m) cave systems in the reef. A couple of the caves are enclosed overhead, but you are never far from a visible blue water exit. The best is Dangerous Reef: you feel as though you're in a cathedral because of how the sunbeams and shadows constantly dance across the white sandy floor

Low Prices Attracting Investors to Egypt!
Article
 
Gamsha
Gamsha Bay

While much of the rest of the world is suffering from high real estate prices and a credit crunch, Egypt is benefitting due to its low property prices. Many UK residents are seeing their money go further in this Middle East country due to the combination of low prices and a good exchange rate. In addition to buyers, developers are noting the interest in Egypt and working to bring more property online quickly. While there are some new Red Sea resorts that are sprouting up, even traditional resorts and cities are seeing a boom.

Tahir Ali, managing director of property company Egypt Revealed, was quoted as saying that because property prices in the country are only a fraction of those in the UK, investors often do not need to take out a loan to buy a property. As a result, property can be bought straight up, and the process is much simpler.

In addition to the low costs, Egypt has become a hot tourist destination. “We are very much in a period of rapid growth for the Egyptian market. This is being fuelled by massive increases in tourist numbers helped by the arrival of more low cost flights,' he said. According to Cheapflights.co.uk, interest in flights to Sharm Al Sheikh is up 50% over a year ago.

In addition to Sharm Al Sheikh, new resorts at Gamsha Bay and Sahl Hasheesh are under construction or planned. Hurghada is another resort town that is popular and growing along the Red Sea, and it has an international airport for direct flights from the UK. Cairo and Alexandria are also seeing increased development, partly as a result of the favorable travel and monetary conditions. With low prices and a good exchange rate, Egypt looks set to continue its building and investment growth.

CAS uphold Shikabala suspension

Sport news
 
Shikabala
Shikabala

Under the CAS ruling, Shikabala will miss the Ahly game next month.

The court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) upheld FIFA's decision to suspend Zamalek's talented winger Mahmoud “Shikabala” Abdel Razeq for six months, according to PAOK Saloniki.

The Greek club said in a statement on their website that the CAS ruling came in their favor.
"Zamalek's appeal against Shikabala's ban has been rejected," the club said.

The suspension, if confirmed, will come as a massive blow to Zamalek, who are preparing for two important games against arch-rivals Ahly next month.
Zamalek will face Ahly in the CAF Champions League on July 20. Both sides meet again seven days later in the Egyptian Super Cup.

Initial Decision

Shikabala was handed a six-month ban and a €990,000 euros fine for making an illegitimate move from PAOK to Zamalek.

Upon the Cairo giants' appeal, the CAS froze the ban until announcing their final ruling regarding the transfer wrangle.

Zamalek may now opt to sell star striker Amr Zaki to Wigan Athletic to gain the funds needed to pay Shikabala's hefty fine.

Sand-Filled Bottles
Parents & kids
Sand filled bottles
Sand filled bottles

Take a bit of the beach home with you by crafting these cool sand-filled bottles. Kids will have fun making these at the beach or cottage and they make a great summer souvenir to take home.

For more great crafts, visit our classic craft and summer craft sections.
What you'll need:

* Sand
* Newspaper
* Wax paper
* Colored chalk (as many different colors as you like)
* Clear glass or plastic bottles
* Stick or pencil
* White glue or bottle cap
* Cutting board

How to make it:

1. Cover the work surface with newspaper.
2. Place a sheet of wax paper on a cutting board.
3. Place some sand on the wax paper. Roll a piece of colored chalk across the sand until the sand is completely changed to that color.
4. Carefully lift the wax paper and gently shake the sand to the center of the wax paper. Hold both ends of the paper up to use it as a pour spout to pour the colored sand into the bottle. You can use a funnel if you find it easier.
5. Use a stick or the eraser end of a pencil to make a few dips in the sand.
6. Repeat these steps until you have several colors of sand layered in your bottle(s).
7. If you have a cap for your bottle, be sure to fill it completely with sand and press down firmly on the sand to compact it. Place cap on tight. If you do not have a bottle cap, fill sand to about ½” from the top of the bottle. Compact the sand with a pencil or your finger if it fits in the opening and then fill to the top with glue and let dry.

Tips:

* You can use small plastic bottles available at your local craft store or empty jars and bottles that you have on hand.
* If using sand from the beach, be sure to sift it with a flour sifter first to remove any bits of debris and rock.

Readers Contribution written by Riham:

Can’t be bothered to leg it to the gym?
Try some of these stay-in-bed exercises and tone up without even getting up

Full-body stretch:
How? Lie on your back, legs straight, arms above your head and palms together, then stretch out with pointed toes and fingers. Repeat with back of your hands together.
Why? This is your wake-up warm-up to get your muscles going.

Bed bum toner:
How? Lie flat on your back, tighten your abs and pull one knee up to your chest. Hold for ten seconds, then repeat with the other leg.
Why? Tones the muscles in the front of your thigh, and stretches and tightens the bum.

Thigh Curler:
How? Lie face down on the bed, holding a pillow between your feet. Bend your knees, bringing the pillow slowly towards your bottom & return. Repeat six times.
Why? Tones the backs of your thighs and bum.

Pillow Plank:
How? Lying flat on your front, raise yourself up onto your elbows, keeping your abs tight, and hold for ten seconds. Rest and repeat twice more.
Why? Strengthens your core muscles and helps give you abs of steel.

Bed Dipper:
How? Sit on the edge of your bed with hands, palms downs, either side of your hips. Slide forwards, lift your hips off the bed and dip downwards. Straighten your arms to return, and repeat four times.
Why? It is great for toning the back of the upper arms and banishing bingo wings.
