Introducing Spot’s New Business Directory

Spot Update
 
New look results page

New look results page

So, what’s new about our online Business Finder? Well, we’ve listened to your feedback and based our improvements on your experiences online.

We have added functions to ‘search for’ and then ‘refine’ the listings. We’ve found it the most effective method of locating the listing you need. You can search in one of two fields by company name or ‘key word’ and you can refine your reach results by location and subcategory. You’ll be aided by our autosuggest function that will help you see the options tagged within the database.

We’ve improved the design of the results page and replaced the scrolling function with ‘pages’ that will be familiar from the new ‘Classifieds’ section. This makes it easier for you to navigate. Similarly, we’ve added sorting options (A-Z, Relevance and Popularity) and the ability to view 10, 30 or 50 results per page to aid viewing your results.

Our aim is ensure listings are easy to find, view and add, and that existing businesses are ‘claimed’ by business owners. More on adding new listings and claiming existing businesses in the next issues…

Guaranteed year-round sunshine

Guaranteed year-round sunshine

The Red Sea has long been a favourite destination for British tourists. It has guaranteed year-round sunshine, accommodation to suit any budget and superb diving – all just a few hours' flying time from the UK. The scuba action – the nearest warm-water diving to Britain – puts it in any experienced diver's top 10 dive spots and its PADI courses are top-class.

Until recently, the majority of British visitors have gone to the area's best-known resorts, Sharm El Sheikh, on the tip of the Sinai peninsula, and Hurghada on the Egyptian mainland. But an Egyptian government initiative has seen the area rebranded as the Red Sea Riviera, and small, high-end resorts are springing up, complete with luxurious hotels, golf courses, tennis clubs and spas. Tour operators are responding by providing more direct flights and some competitively-priced packages.

Here is a guide to what the destinations have to offer.

GOES LIVE

 

Breathing Relaxation and Freediving for Everyone

- Are your friends leaving you behind?

- Do they still have lots of air in their tanks and you have to go back to the boat, missing the last pinnacle with the turtle, dolphins and eagle ray?!

- Have you tried snorkelling but want to be able to dive down and have a closer look at the marine life?

Now in Hurghada Freedive Egypt can help you realise your dreams. In association with Aquarius Diving Club (based at Marriott Hotel, Hurghada), we teach relaxation, breathing techniques and mental preparation; including learning about one’s own body, its reactions and capabilities to build in-water confidence and relaxation for snorkellers and scuba divers.

Freediving or breath-hold diving is a type of advanced snorkelling and in-water adventure that allows enthusiastic people to experience the sights, sounds and challenges of the most natural of underwater experiences.

Courses range from a basic introduction to snorkelling to advanced freediving - taking you to depths of 30m! If you are a scuba diver looking for a way to increase your bottom time, a breathing relaxation course only takes 2 hours to complete and gives immediate results! One guest went from 30-minute dives on a 15ltr tank to 50-minute dives on a 12ltr tank!

Freedive Egypt is the only place you can learn to freedive in Hurghada with a qualified AIDA freediving instructor and Judge. As well as being an AIDA freediving instructor Suzanne is also a PADI SCUBA Diving instructor and can therefore not only teach you to freedive she can also help you to reduce your air consumption while SCUBA diving and teach you how to relax in the water whatever activity you are undertaking.

Spotlight on…. Snorkeling

Sport focus
One of the easiest, safest and most delightful invitations to explore the aquatic wilderness

One of the easiest, safest and most
delightful invitations to explore the
aquatic wilderness

Snorkeling Techniques

Today, there are many opportunities to appreciate the underwater world: outstanding books and periodicals, excellent television documentaries and films, and engaging public aquariums and interpretive facilities. But, for people who wish to actually get wet and mingle with the fish, snorkeling is one of the easiest, safest and most delightful invitations to explore the aquatic wilderness. I work with literally hundreds of snorkelers each year. They range from novice to expert, from under 10 years old to over 80.

The most important key to successful snorkeling is simply being relaxed in the water. This sounds easy enough, but being comfortable in the water can entail as much psychology as actual physical skill development. With a few tips and a little practice, however, I’ve seen that virtually anyone can become a competent snorkeler.

Equipment

In today’s world of increasingly complex, high-tech gadgetry, modern snorkeling equipment is refreshingly simple. Although there is an extensive assortment of styles, sizes and features to each piece of gear, there are only three essential items: mask, fins and snorkel.

If you are going to buy just one item, it should be a mask that properly fits your face. This is the most important investment you can make for enjoyable snorkeling. To keep water out, the skirt of the mask (preferably silicon) must seal securely. When you put the mask on, be sure to brush away any hair that might interfere with the seal. Some suntan products, when wet, can sting your eyes. So, it’s best to refrain from putting lotion on your nose or face.

By essentially transferring your mouth behind and above your head, the snorkel lets you easily breathe while floating face down in the water. Especially for people more accustomed to breathing through their nose, becoming comfortable using a snorkel will require some practice. Many of today’s snorkels employ a purge valve to help remove unwanted water, and are optimized for use on the left-hand side of your mask.

With few exceptions, snorkeling fins should be flexible and lightweight. There are two basic styles. Full-foot fins are usually lighter, but fins with adjustable straps allow you to also wear neoprene booties. In addition to protecting your feet during shore entries and exits, booties also offer thermal insulation, facilitate horizontal floating, and protect your feet from potential abrasion caused by the fins.

The 10 best techies worth following on Twitter

Lifestyle
I’ve looked for the technology thought leaders

I’ve looked for the technology
thought leaders

For new users on Twitter, the toughest thing to figure out is who to follow. And since Twitter is a real-time stream of 140-character updates from people whose thoughts and opinions matter to you, the issue of who to follow is what makes Twitter either a time-waster or a useful tool for gathering intelligence.

With that in mind, I’ve put together a list of the top techies worth following on Twitter. You can also find me on Twitter at http://twitter.com/jasonhiner.

My list isn’t based on the most famous tech personalities who have Twitter accounts or the ones who have the most Twitter followers. Instead, I’ve looked for the technology thought leaders who post the most useful information–links, news, tips, inside information, and perspectives on current events. I also looked for techies whose Twitter streams weren’t filled with too much chaff–off topic thoughts, lots of short replies, and detailed reports on what they had for lunch.

So here is the cream that rose to the top:

10. Rob Enderle (Analyst, Enderle Group): Rob is renowned for looking at the tech world with a discerning, critical eye; fortunately, he’s brought that same perspective to Twitter and successfully deployed it in 140-character chunks

9. Paul Thurrott (Founder, Windows Supersite): Terrific source for information on the Microsoft product ecosystem; not afraid to tell you when he loves something or hates it; uses Twitter to share both news and tips

8. Jeremiah Owyang (Analyst, Forrester Research): Focuses on communication and how technology is revolutionizing it in all its forms, even focuses on Twitter itself; his blog post on how he uses Twitter is an excellent starting point for those who want to learn how to be useful on Twitter

7. Lance Ulanoff (Editor in Chief of PCMag): Excellent source of links, quick news hits, and instant analysis on lots of general tech topics

6. Charlene Li (Author and thought leader): Provides big picture perspectives on emerging technologies, social networking, and the overall direction of the technology world
