While everybody else will be obviously going for something romantic like the above, choose to do it differently! Go bowling or skiing @SkiEgypt, maybe even some arcade fun @Magic planet, get some take outs afterwards and cruise in your car while playing your favorite tunes. It doesn’t have to something fancy to be romantic, some girls like simplicity, if your is that kind, then choose a casual place where she can be herself in.
At the end, the scenery that matters is her smile, isn’t it?

How Egypt is Close to Banning Single-Use Plastic Bags

Published

on

By

Egyptian Parliament Anissa Hassouna has submitted earlier a proposal to the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Environment suggesting the ban of using plastic bags in Egypt 

Hasouna’s interest in replacing harmful plastic with eco-friendly ones was met with admiration, and environmentalists are welcoming the idea and encouraging it.

It was reported that Egypt uses around 12 billion plastic bags annually! Which not only is an economic strain but also an environmental crisis. The plastic ending up in water is causing severe problems to the Nile river and the seas, which thus affects the environmental tourism.

Hassouna also highlighted the effects of plastic bags being burned on the human health. As a substitute, the Parliamentarian suggests using paper bags or ones that are made from eco-friendly materials.

What gives us hope that this proposal can be further turned into a reality is that not long ago, Egypt’s Red Sea governor, General Ahmed Abdullah, decided to ban single-use or disposable plastics starting June after agreeing to the proposal submitted by Hepca.

Until then, here is how you can do your own share of good towards the environment with the help of the following Instagram pages.

SFS Recycling Team is a student based initiative, they collect recyclable wastes (paper, plastics and aluminium) and give out the proceeds to charity. Their contacts are available through their Instagram, all you have to do is call and they will take it from there.

 

Trash4cash is another environmental service business that cares about the planet and definitely your pockets, all you have to do us send them a picture of your trash, lay back and cash it!

Mohamed Al-Husseini: The First Egyptian With Down Syndrome to Take on A UN Job

Published

By

We are constantly trying to regain faith in the world by breaking norms and false assumptions that usually hold us back from achieving great things.

That’s why it gives us utter joy and pride when we witness the success of people which defies all odds and this is what Egyptian swimmer Mohamed Al-Husseini achieved when he got named spokesperson of the UN High Commission on Disability in Egypt and abroad.

Not only is he the first Egyptian and Arab to be appointed such a role but he is also the first person with Down Syndrome to become a UN’s spokesperson, giving him the chance to attend global conferences that will allow him to share his story, struggles, hopes and goals.

According to the commission’s director, Reda Abdel Aziz, Al-Husseini was chosen because of his impressive swimming achievements. Taking a look back to 2017 for instance, the 18-year-old crossed the English Channel after training for more than 10 hours a day, making him the first swimmer with Down Syndrome to reach such an accomplishment.

This recognition comes just in time because Egypt has been indeed trying to encourage and empower people with disabilities as just a few months back, the parliament gave final approval on a draft law that was submitted by the government to establish the National Council for People with Disabilities this year.

Now, we all hope that more people can feel the motivation to take on similar steps and prove others wrong.

Ways to Fall Back To Work Routine After This Long Break

Published

on

By

It has been indeed a long vacation with the weekend following the Eid holiday and if you’re feeling like you need a vacation from your vacation, don’t worry it is not just you.

Days of relaxation and unwinding followed by emails and deadlines are certainly hard to give in to, that is why we have created the following list to help you survive the inevitable without suffering from a meltdown.

1- Make a to do list

Take your time to plan out how your day will go, the best way is to create a to do list of all the things you need to get done with their deadlines, and then start prioritizing the tasks. Start with old tasks before jumping straight to new ones that will only make you feel overwhelmed. Also, choose the small tasks that can take less time and at the same time can boost your confidence.

Remember to make the to do list colorful and bright!

2- Boost that caffeine level

The only perk is that Ramadan is over and we can finally have our morning coffee and lunch breaks. So your best shot to stay alert is to have coffee that will help you get back into the groove of things.

3- Fix your sleep schedule

One of the many perks of having a long holiday is that you get to sleep in because you spent the previous night binge watching series. This unfortunately has to come to an end, so don’t give in to a nap and try to sleep as early as you can.

This will help you wake up refreshed and less grumpy, and if you’re having trouble falling asleep, try to have some tea or meditate.

4- Resume the routine

It seems hard at the moment, almost as if you have forgotten what to do but eventually things will fall back into place and you will start feeling productive again. You don’t have to follow the very same routine at first, you can for instance have lunch outside for a change or bring dessert with you (something to look forward to).

5- Reorganize your desk

You will be surprised with what an organized desk can do, it can help you feel relaxed and content. You can even have some photographs printed out from your last vacation and place them in front of you for motivation and good vibes.

6- Embrace the post-vacation blues

It’s okay to still feel like you need more time to relax and unwind and it is okay to feel blue about the vacation coming to an end. But at a certain point, you will have to embrace how you feel and push yourself to working harder despite how you feel.

While it’s completely normal to feel upset, it’s also important to remember that there can always be another vacation in the near future.
