Preserve our Reefs

The Ritz-Carlton and Red Sea Waterworld team-up to create new Red Sea ambassadors - By Mark Fraenkel
Environmental news
 
Diving team

Diving Team

A new team of Red Sea ambassadors has been created as a result of an innovative and pioneering new project called Preserve Our Reefs.

The aim of the project is to help preserve the wonderful marine environment of the Red Sea and secondly to develop an understanding of some of the fascinating complexities that make up the coral reef.

The project’s first day began with staff and guests attending coral reef awareness sessions, after which participants moved onto the house reef to monitor the state of the coral – as a contribution to the Project Aware sponsored CoralWatch programme. Project Aware is the very active non-profit environmental organisation.

The project, a partnership between The Ritz-Carlton’s Community Footprints Programme and the hotel’s dive centre, Red Sea Waterworld, is amongst the first of such cooperations in Sharm el Sheikh on Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

Elaborate Facebook Worm Virus Spreading

News
 
Screen shot

Screen shot

Facebook malware attacks to date have largely consisted of getting user credentials via phishing sites and then spreading spam and additional phishing attempts. But a new worm is disseminating through Facebook that aims to install trojan software on a user’s machine.

The worm spreads when a compromised user’s account is used to send message to others with a title such as “LOL. You’ve been catched on hidden cam, yo:” and a link to a random URL. The linked website is a YouTube-like page that shows a video player along with what looks like a standard browser message to update your Flash installation. Clicking on the button begins a malware installation of a file called “codecsetup.exe.” We didn’t go so far as to install the software, but our guess is that it zombies your computer, installs a keylogger, and other fun stuff.

Working towards declaring the Red Sea a No Catch Zone

Fishermen on the Red Sea

Fishermen on the Red Sea

With fish stocks in the Red Sea under serious threat, HEPCA is joining together with the CDWS and SSDM in an initiative working towards declaring the Red Sea a NO CATCH ZONE.

The National Authority of Fisheries recently issued a decree banning all fishing in the Egyptian Red Sea for a period of three months. Sadly, this decree was not observed. Exceptions were taken and fishing continued in parts of the Red Sea with the justification of the social needs of the fishermen and their families.

According to statistics, the fish catch from the area of the Gulf of Aqaba, and from Hurghada to the deep South, represents just 2% of the total fish catch from the Egyptian Red Sea. Essentially, by destroying these fish stocks, we are sacrificing tourism in the region and the natural resources of the Red Sea for just 2% of the fish catch. The revenue from this 2% catch is clearly minute compared to the total income from tourism in the Red Sea.

The Red Sea is actually one of the poorest fish grounds in the region. Our lack of rainwater, rivers and floods make for a very poor fish habitat. Fish stocks are almost wholly dependent on the delicate reef ecosystems that delight four million tourists in the Red Sea each year. By forcibly removing the fish, which resembles 30% of the economic value of the reef, we are also condemning the reefs of the Red Sea to certain death. In time, the Red Sea will resemble nothing more than an ugly, empty lake.

Toddlers don't have to be terrible. Try a game of Skeetball!

Parents & Kids

Toddler playing

Toddler playing

How to deal with a toddler and have fun at the same time!

It isn't really easy for many people to spend all day with a toddler...to play with trucks, dolls, blocks, or bang pots all day. It isn't easy for some people to spend even an hour with a toddler. Sometimes you, the parent/adult, can get bored or worn out very quickly. Here are a few tips to help you both cope with being together all day, especially on those rainy days.

1) Your enthusiasm is crucial. Your child can sense your mood. If you are not interested in a toy or activity, then he'll think that it isn't interesting or fun either. Haven't you noticed how your child always wants to play with a toy that another child is playing with? And as soon as the child puts it down, he doesn't want it anymore?

2) Start laughing and be silly. It's okay to be silly with your child. Just because you are the adult doesn't mean that you can't have fun too! After you start the sillies, you won't have to think of what to do next, the fun will follow.

3) Be a leader. Instead of just watching what your toddler does, engage him in an activity that you start yourself. Ask him to line up all the trucks for a parade. Or have her put her dolls in a cheerleading pyramid. Or see if he can put all the red blocks in a small bucket and then dump them out like a dump truck.

4) Go back in time. Think about something that you wish you could have done when you were a child. Here's your chance to do it! Did you always want to play with your sisters favorite doll and comb her hair, or with your brothers trucks to have drag races in the kitchen? Start having fun with it and your child will watch and want to join in.

5) Give him/her a task. See if she can bring all of the magazines over to you and use them to cover up the rug. Or see if he can stack all of his board books in one pile. Each time he/she brings you an item, celebrate with a hi-five or a tickle session. Let her tickle you!

Great Summer Workouts: Just Add Water!

Body and soul

Working out in pool

Working out in pool

With warm weather season now in full gear, exercisers want to take their workouts outside and breakout of their indoor fitness ruts. But, when temperatures reach record highs and humidity levels soar, traditional outdoor workouts become less appealing. So how can you stay cool while still enjoying outdoor physical activity? One word – water. Water exercises are the perfect way to workout under the sun without overheating. You can get a total body workout without even breaking a sweat!

And don’t worry if you aren’t a veteran swimmer. Aquatic workouts aren’t limited to just swimming. There are many other forms of pool exercises. You don’t even have to be a regular exerciser to try aquatic fitness. One of the great things about working out in the water is that even fitness novices can easily perform many of the moves.

It’s also an excellent fitness choice for all ages, from the very young to seniors. Water exercise is a very good way to burn calories, improve your strength and flexibility, tone-up, improve your cardiovascular system, and just get more fit overall. And, the types of workouts are practically endless. Most land exercises can be modified and re-created in water.

Other benefits include:
- Lower injury risk
- Less sweating
- Works your entire body
- Challenges your body in a very different way then it is accustom to
- Refreshing way to workout
- Water provides natural resistance so no equipment is needed
- Can increase/decrease intensity (difficulty) simply by alternating between shallow and deep areas
- Good low-impact exercise choice for pregnant women
- Reduces joint compression and downward gravity pull (in other words – easier on the joints)
- Even people who can’t exercise on land can often exercise in the water
- Excellent rehabilitation exercise for people recovering from an injury
- Less stress on bones and muscles
- Great option for people with arthritis Plus, water workouts also provide a fun and more socially interactive exercise option. For example, parents can enjoy time at the pool with their children while also fitting in some of their weekly workout sessions. Aquatic aerobic classes also provide a social, group-setting alternative.
