on the theme of animals, jaws situation developing in a resort in the red sea :scared: :unsure:

Shark specialists fly to Egypt to help stop attacks

Three US shark experts head to Egypt after a spate of attacks in Sharm el-Sheikh leaves one tourist dead and four injured

Three US shark experts are flying to Egypt to try to help explain what is behind a series of shark attacks that have killed one tourist and injured four others over the past week.

As British holiday companies cancelled all watersports and boat trips in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, there were unconfirmed reports that swimmers were forced to flee from the water after a shark was spotted close to the beach.

Shark attacks at Egypt's Red Sea resorts are rare, and the attacks on the southern tip of the Sinai peninsula are believed to involve a single oceanic whitetip shark.

Snorkelling and most watersports have been suspended at the resort following the death yesterday of a 70-year-old German woman. However, the authorities are allowing experienced divers into the water from tomorrow.

The Egyptian authorities are at a loss to explain the attacks, but theories yesterday ranged from the sharks being attracted by dead animals dumped in the water to the bizarre claim that Mossad, the Israeli secret service, put the man-eating shark in the water to try to undermine the Egyptian tourism industry.

The trio of experts is expected to arrive over the next two days, with a fourth advising from his US research centre. A Swedish vessel is also surveying the waters around Sharm el-Sheikh to track shark movements.

Yesterday's death occurred the day after the authorities lifted a 48-hour ban on holidaymakers entering the water, following attacks on three Russians and a Ukrainian.

Officials, who are likely to face criticism for allowing the beaches to reopen, had said they were confident the capture and killing of two sharks on Thursday had eliminated the threat to swimmers. However, one British couple said their group of snorkellers had to scramble for safety after a large shark circled swimmers on Saturday.

Egypt's Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CDWS) said the shark experts would "form an advisory team to try to assess and advise on the best course of action following the shark attacks in areas north of Naama Bay this week".

The claims that the shark attacks could have been part of a plot by Mossad came from Mohamed Abdel Fadil Shousha, the governor of South Sinai.

"What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark [in the sea] to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question, but it needs time to confirm," he told the state news site, egynews.net.

Others said sharks may have been drawn to shallow waters after cattle being shipped in for last month's Muslim festival of sacrifice, Eid al-Adha, had died and were thrown overboard.

"There is not one reason that will be ignored," said Ahmed el-Edkawi, assistant secretary for the South Sinai region. "We are seeking any reason that causes a change in shark behaviour."

CDWS chairman Hesham Gabr said he had heard nothing about any possible Mossad involvement. He said the likeliest explanations for the attacks were the "irresponsible divers" who fed sharks in the area and ships that had recently dumped a number of sheep in the sea.

The chamber said most diving sites near the resort would be open tomorrow, but not in the area where the attacks had happened. No introductory or training dives would be allowed.

"All snorkel activities and other watersports – with the exception of glass-bottomed boat operations – remain suspended in the whole of the Sharm el-Sheikh coastal area," a CDWS statement said.

The British holiday companies Thomson and First Choice advised holidaymakers in the area to stay out of the water following Foreign Office advice that people should be on their guard.

Local diving experts said single-shark attacks were rare in the area, adding they were mystified as to why so many people had been attacked in such quick succession.

The attacks grabbed the attention of world media and raised fears about the possible damage they could do to Egypt's coastal tourist industry.

"We've seen more attacks in a few days than in the previous 15 years," said Florian Herzberg, dive operations manager at the Reef 2000 centre in Dahab, a resort north of Sharm el-Sheikh.

"It could be a shark with behavioural problems that was deliberately fed different things and now associates humans with food."

Watersports centres said business had dried up after officials banned snorkelling and swimming, leaving tourists with little to do but speculate over the cause of the attacks.

"Egypt is full of rumours and one does not know what to believe," said Gasser Mohamed, a diving instructor at CFun Divers centre in South Sinai. "I see that there are a lot of sharks in the sea and the possible rarity of tuna fish due to overfishing seems to be causing the attacks."

In that toy shop yesterday, I saw the cutest little robot. (I like toy robots, preferably the windup variety. :o)

Price tag: € 160 :eek:
I currently have 5 robots and they costed between € 11 and € 60.

So, I ask why this particular robot was so expensive.
Answer: it's from Japan and that country isn't exactly a low wages country.

I don't buy the low wages explanation because that's only part of the reason.
So, I looked on ebay and I found that robot in a shop in the USA. Including shipping costs and calculating from $ to €, it would cost me € 75 to get it shipped from the US.

€ 160 vs € 75.
:cuckoo:

Low wages in Japan? High profit margin in Brussels, more like it. :(

Two years ago it was more of a war between chat threads, this year I haven't got the feeling at all. In any case, it's just fun :) If some people strategize, send PMs, or campaign, it's all part of the fun.

If some people strategize, send PMs, or campaign, it's all part of the fun.
I guess it depends on your viewpoint because if some people strategize, campaign,.... to help somebody get votes, somebody on the other side of that could feel miffed.

If somebody writes something like "best MTF'er and it's not even close" to explain a vote in a match, there's somebody else who regularly chats with the author of the comment who will feel (slightly) disappointed.

Then there's this sort of comment
"I'm voting for A because I've known her longer so :hug: B? " or "I'm voting for C because she/he's my good buddy so :hug: D"
I find it fake in most cases. Probably says more about my own cynical personality :o :lol: than anything else but there's only very few who can write this sort of comment and get away with it (meaning that it comes across as honest to me.)

It's a coin with two sides, you see the upside, I see the downside. ;)
It's not important anyway.

although i don;t like ronnie (makes it look so easy - i tried it isn;t close to easy :lol:... i think WG you would like him.. he reminds me a lot of federer :p).. andrea did say she fell in love with barca's game watching the classico :hearts: so i'll be nice :p

Same reason I am not really a fan of Anand and Kramnik in chess even though both are great guys. They make the game look too easy at times and I simply cannot relate.

(I'm posting this picture so there's something to see for those who don't care about snooker or football :p)

:lol: Great picture though, the dogs look so peaceful at the snow :awww:

i didn't even know there were sharks in the red sea :o


Since there are sharks in the Indian ocean, why would they be absent from the red sea. :shrug:

i was afraid going into sea water before.. now i'm more terrified... :scared:

people with their ships throwing their trash in the fucking water is the more realistic explanation... stupid Egyptians blaming someone else for what happened is the only thing i have to say for the Mossad explanation they gave.. typical :mad:

3 days ago all the newspapers said they caught 2 sharks and it was safe again... today i found about the woman was killed

not to mention the joke of a Parliament elections we just had :tape:

Typical to invoke a conspiracy theory for the shark infestation. I hope the political situation develops well, it is very hard to read it for an outsider.

Merton, I've never read all the way through Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. :o World War II is a special interest of mine though, although I pay a lot more attention to the North American and western European parts of it. Did you go to any WWII sites when you were in northern France?


No, modern war locations depress me. :awww: I have only visited the location of the battle of Marathon and the monument in honor of the fallen Spartans at Thermopylai. I love museums though, there are awesome aviation museums in Hannover and Chicago.

:bigcry:

worst thing is I have to be here those days with some Aussie visitors :hysteric:

I had some regular visitors from Chile at work today and they gloated for the summer starting there and the prospect of their sunny vacations during Christmas time at Vina :(

In that toy shop yesterday, I saw the cutest little robot. (I like toy robots, preferably the windup variety. :o)

Price tag: € 160 :eek:
I currently have 5 robots and they costed between € 11 and € 60.

So, I ask why this particular robot was so expensive.
Answer: it's from Japan and that country isn't exactly a low wages country.

I don't buy the low wages explanation because that's only part of the reason.
So, I looked on ebay and I found that robot in a shop in the USA. Including shipping costs and calculating from $ to €, it would cost me € 75 to get it shipped from the US.

€ 160 vs € 75.
:cuckoo:

Low wages in Japan? High profit margin in Brussels, more like it. :(

Very interesting, thanks. Perhaps there is a tax or tariff involved. :shrug: The profit margin seems too excessive not to be undercut by competition. France and Holland are close.

Two years ago it was more of a war between chat threads, this year I haven't got the feeling at all. In any case, it's just fun :) If some people strategize, send PMs, or campaign, it's all part of the fun. The only negative reaction so far this year has been from Mjau who complained that she lost because her opponent voted for himself.

:haha: Too good.

it's typical to blame someone/something else for their mistakes :shrug:

Absolutely, while you can take actions against ships throwing crap at the sea (fines, penalties) there is nothing you can do about Mossad. Pretty convenient if you don't really want to take actions against the ship owners.

The problem with conspiracy theories is that they suspend the critical functions of our brains. Acceptance requires faith: "The alliens live among us" is not a proposition that is testable in the same sense as "The winter in Topeca, Kansas is more mild compared to the winter in Athens, Greece". Then it is intellectual laziness to assume that "you are in the inside, you know". How convenient.

The mere fact that there are so many conspiracy theories around is an indication that there are true conspiracies around. After all, if you run a true conspiracy it is great to create some noise around that. :lol:

I couldn't go to France and not go to the wars sites although I totally understand what you mean about them being depressing.

Chicago is a nice city to visit. I've never been to the aviation museum there; I'll add it to my list of things to do next time I'm there.

I would like to go there some day.

I've also been to the beaches in Normandy and the Memorial de Caen, and Anne Frank's House in Amsterdam. When I was 5 or 6 I visited a concentration camp in Germany.

I went to the Douaumont ossuary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douaumont_ossuary) too and to a small village not far from there that was completely destroyed during the battle of Verdun.

Yup, I bought my laptop in France. Disadvantage of that is that it has a French keyboard and not a Belgian keyboard (both are azerty keyboards but a Belgian keyboard combines keys typical for the French language but also keys useful for the Dutch language).
In The Netherlands, computers have a querty keyboard and I'm used to an azerty keyboard so France it is for computer shopping.

Ypres has the Belgian WWI museum (not just the museum, the entire region is impressive).

My home city will have a brand new Belgian WWII museum and it will be mostly a holocaust museum so bound to be very depressing but I hope that they manage to make it as impressive as the Ypres "In Flanders Fields" museum (that left me in tears when leaving it)


Which reminds me, they've started working on the new NATO headquarters in Brussels and in a matter of weeks, they've dug up 3 huge unexploded WWII bombs. It's incredible how they're still digging up bombs on a regular basis after all this time.

But it seemed a big problem. Finally Dini volunteered for it during the ACC. You should PM Dini that you want to run it.

I wonder what Zidane will do with the 11 million euros he got from Qatar. :o

:speakles: 11 million euros?

Let me google that:
Zinédine Zidane aurait touché 15 millions de dollars pour soutenir la candidature du Qatar.

On peut se demander pourquoi le champion Zinedine Zidane a soutenu la candidature du Qatar pour la Coupe du monde 2022. Le journal australien Herald Tribune avance son hypothèse. Selon lui, Zinédine Zidane aurait touché 15 millions de dollars pour soutenir la candidature du Qatar.

« Mon rôle était de soutenir la candidature, je l'ai accompli et je peux vous dire que je suis content », a-t-il commenté sur le site officiel de la FIFA. « Ce que l'avenir me réserve, on verra, ce n'est pas l'actualité. Ce qui compte pour moi c'est de profiter de ce moment. Je suis heureux de faire partie de cette équipe gagnante », a poursuivit l’ancien international français.

Zinédine Zidane touche donc une jolie somme qui devrait lui permettre de faire de gros cadeaux de Noël.
:speakles: That's an insane amount of money

:yeah: Yeah I think they are basically very climate related. I identifie myself coz despite I am coming from a very european family in my house there are some persian rugs (not the most expensive off course) and I see that a lot of other houses uses straw mats and other typical furniture for hot places.

I don't participate in the pop con because I feel uncomfortable ranking virtual friends or posters I value against each other. There is a fun side for sure but we don't all share the same sense of fun. :awww: Take for example the Genci-Peta pairing. I have met Genci, so he is not just a virtual friend. I miss the beer we didn't have in Athens. Then I value Peta tremendously. Sure I can abstain but that is also a statement. That is zugzwang: The obligation to make some move is uncomfortable.

Then there is the dimension "my virtual network is stronger/bigger/more organized than your virtual network". That prepares the background for traps and backstabbing. There is no need to explain the bribery dimension. :lol: It is just hilarious to take this seriously but apparently some do.

It is not the same for the ACC but still I think the point is lost since the hordes of the barbarians have taken over GM.
