Winds

2012-03-29T06:59:03+02:00March 29th, 2012|News|Comments Off on Winds

You might think it is time that these winds end, but…Though we had pretty strong winds during the last weeks, those were merely cold winds from the North and the warm hot ones are still to come.April and May are the months  of the Khamaseen winds. Those are hot dusty winds coming from the Sahara, similar to the Sicrocco, bringing lots of sand over. Though the Eastern Sinai is protected by the Sinai mountains and they are much milder in Sharm the temperature can still rise within a few hours by up by 15C.Called by the Egyptians "rih al khamsin" [...]

2012-03-05T16:25:01+02:00March 5th, 2012|News|Comments Off on Rick O’Barry on saving dolphins and The Cove

http://www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfastIn the 60s, the TV hit Flipper made us all fall in love with dolphins. Rick O'Barry is the man who trained the dolphins to do the tricks that were so endearing — and that spawned a whole industry of sea worlds and marine worlds and flipperworlds around the globe, committing dolphins to a lifelong sentence of enslavement and humiliation, all in the name of our entertainment.These days Rick O'Barry feels sickeningly guilty about that, and has spent decades since dedicated to freeing dolphins. That mission has seen him arrested all around the world, thrown into jail, banned from conferences [...]
