Property Investment Developments Sparked by Tourism Growth

Hurghada – a popular destination
Hurghada – a popular destination

Both the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) & the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) have identified the massive growth of Tourism to Egypt. This growth is having a positive effect on new tourism businesses introduced like airlines, travel and tour operators and most notably a wave of investment property developments offering beach front properties from £15000.

It's a fact that Egypt is seeking to diversify its economy through tourism and real estate - with increased tourism the demand for short-term rentals should increase which fuels a fly-to-let property investment culture. Also with increased tourism comes a growing awareness of the fact that Egypt is one of the shortest haul destinations for Britons and mainland Europeans who want year round sun, making Egypt property an increasingly attractive choice for second homes and retirement properties.

But is all this just theory? Not according to a report from the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (WTO) that indicates that Egyptian tourism figures for 2007 rose by 20%.

According to the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) tourism is now on target for up to a 7% annual increase over the next decade, the Tourism Minister has a plan in place to attract 14 million visitors by 2011, and a new initiative targeting Asia, Europe and North America is expected to ensure a doubling of tourists by 2015.

Enabling this increase in arrivals in the fact that Egypt's airports are now open to low cost carriers with Jet2holidays being the latest to announce cheap flights from the UK's Leeds Bradford International Airport to Sharm el Sheikh for example.

Egyptian tennis champ receives US academic excellence award

Sport News
 

Mahmoud Hamed El-Sayed
Mahmoud Hamed El-Sayed

Charismatic tennis player Mahmoud Hamed El-Sayed is more than just an exceptional athlete who has been climbing up the national tennis rankings for the past decade though local and international competitions.

As a senior at the University of South Florida (USF), he was recently given the Big East Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award for his excellence in both sports and academia.

The recognition is extremely rewarding and motivating for El-Sayed, “It gives you something back, I feel all that what I have done was worth it,” he told Daily News Egypt.

Born on August 9, 1986, El-Sayed , 22, picked up a tennis racket for the first time when he was five. “My grandfather got me hooked on tennis; he used to play with me using a balloon and a plastic racket and then took me to the club to play tennis,” he explains.

El-Sayed started having professional training when he was nine, the same year he participated in his first tournament. Being the down-to-earth man that he is, he abstains from calling tennis a profession. “I only used to practice after school six times a week,” he recalls.

He won his first championship when he was under 12 years old at the Heliopolis Sporting Club’s National Tournament. “It was my club, everyone was watching…..it was simply amazing,” he remembers with nostalgia.

The victory catapulted him into the Egyptian national rankings, boosting his confidence and helping him focus on building a professional tennis career.

How to make a Mummy Mask
Parents & Kids

Mummy Mask
Mummy Mask

Teacher: Sharon Barrett Kennedy Grade Level: Elementary (with assistance) through High School .

Materials:
- Plaster gauze, cut into strips of varying lengths and widths
- Posterboard
- Scissors
- Pencil
- Bowl, water
- Paper towels
- Vaseline or *Plastic Wrap*
- Newspaper
- Acrylic paint, brushes
- Face lotion (optional)


Introduction:
Look at pictures of Egyptian mummy masks and notice how the Egyptians created stylized portraits of the faces. Notice the color schemes and patterns used.

Procedure:
1. Prepare plaster gauze strips and water in an area covered by newspaper.
2. Using posterboard, create the "outline" of a mummy mask and cut out an oval for the student's face to stick through.
3. Have student liberally coat face with Vaseline OR cover face with pieces of plastic wrap. (See note below)
4. Position student comfortably on the floor or and place a wet (damp) paper towel over face (if using Vaseline), making a small opening for the nostrils. Smooth the paper towel down as much as possible in order to follow the form of the face. Student must be able to stay completely still in order for the mask to set well and for the facial features to be accurate.
5. Place posterboard "headdress" over face. The opening should allow for the chin and top of the head to come forward, but should not be so wide that the ears are exposed.
6. Once this is in place, begin applying plaster gauze strips.
7. Wet strips in water, use fingers to remove excess moisture, and apply to side of face and onto posterboard border to about 2" from face.
8. Continue to apply strips of appropriate sizes until entire face is covered with two layers of gauze strips. Go far enough onto the posterboard to "lock" face into the "headdress" form.
9. Use tiny strips of gauze on area between nostrils. Be sure to smooth gauze as much as possible to avoid a rough textured surface.
10. Once two layers of strips have been applied to face and the posterboard next to the face, allow the cast to harden for approximately 15 minutes. Do not leave student alone during this time, and encourage him or her to relax and stay still.
11. When mask has hardened (it will be warm to the touch), carefully remove by lifting off from the top of the head and then down to the chin. If desired, carefully remove paper towel from inside of mask.
12. After student has removed the Vaseline (or plastic wrap) from his or her face, have him or her use plaster gauze strips to cover the nose on the mask and work to the outer edges of the "headdress." Wrap about 1/2" of gauze onto the back of the posterboard to ensure that it is locked into place.
13. When mask is completely dry (the next day), have student paint the entire mask with gold acrylic paint. After that has dried, have them paint in the eyes and add other details and decorations to produce an Egyptian-style mummy mask.

This project took about three days for most of my students, one day for the casting and two days for the painting. Older students may take longer if they choose to add more details to their masks.

Easy to do moves to relax and re-vive you right at your desk
Body and soul

Stretching at the office
Stretching at the office

Sitting for hours on end at a desk can often cause discomfort in the back and neck. Here are a few exercises you can do to help ease those aches and pains.

Just shrug it off:
One exercise that will help loosen up the shoulders are shoulder shrugs. Simply lift and lower your shoulders in ten second intervals. Emphasize pulling your shoulders down, letting their weight completely sink your arms down as well. To get a deeper stretch in the neck and shoulders, grab onto the bottom of your chair while doing your shoulder shrugs which will help pull your shoulders further down to stretch and lengthen your neck.

Roll with it:
Shoulder rolls gently work on your shoulder mobility by using circular motions. Start by rolling your shoulders forward, down and then back, in a small, round motion. Repeat ten times and then reverse the circular motion.

Tilt my way:
An exercise that works well to loosen your lower back is called the pelvic tilt. To begin, sit up tall in your chair and press or imprint your lower back into your chair. While maintaining your posture, shift your pelvis (the bony structure located at the base of your spine) forward and then tuck it back so your lower back imprints into the chair in its beginning position. Repeat ten times.

Twist it out:
To start this fun twist move, sit up tall in your chair once again but do not sink into your lower back. Place your hands on your hips and roll your shoulders back. Slowly rotate your hips from the left to the right. Picture your hips, waist, and torso like a wet washcloth you are trying to ring out. Your abs should tighten as you rotate from side to side. Do this spinal rotation exercise for 5 to 10 repetitions on each side.

Neck Tie treatment
: Stretching your neck safely and effectively can be done by following these steps: First, while keeping your shoulders down, position your neck so your right ear is touching or near your right shoulder, as if a pillow were between your right ear and shoulder. Hold for 15 to 20 seconds and then start to drop your chin towards your chest. Roll your head and neck down and to the left until your left ear is leaning directly down towards your left shoulder. Hold again for 15 to 20 seconds and repeat the “rest and roll” routine for 5 to 10 sets.

Remember, stretching should not be painful, only mildly uncomfortable at the most. Consult a trainer before you attempt movements that require muscle groups that are injured or damaged.
