Maha Kumbh mela (fair) is about to come and carpets weaver is busy for exhibition preparation. Indian Carpets are renowned the world over for their exquisite designs attractive colours. The magnificence of Indian carpet weaving and the intricate patterns that have emerged from it have substantially increased India's carpet exports and placed it prominently in the international carpet map.
Carpet weaving was brought to India by the great Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 16th century. Some of the most exclusive carpets were created during the Mughal reign, each carpet unlike the other but infused with a common magic of colours and exotic design.
A carpet weaver's skills are his own and the designs he evolves are from his mind to be translated in to beautiful form with the help of wool and silk.

Sound Byte-Javahar Lal, Organizer (HINDI)

Engineers Present Their Inventions on...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
02 Sep 2012

Egyptian engineers and engineering students presented their inventions in the 11th session of the Egyptian Engineering Day, held by the IEEE GOLD Egypt (Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers) on September 2nd and 3rd at a large exhibition hall in Cairo, under the auspices of Egypt’s Prime Minister Hesham Kandil.

The annual two-day exhibition is a chance for creative young Egyptian engineers to introduce their innovations to the field of industry and make use of their creative graduation projects to be utilized.

The EDD is held this year under the slogan “Egypt Moves Forward.”

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Eng. Mohamed Yousri, member of the EDD Executive Committee:
“The Egyptian Engineering Day is an exhibition for projects. Through competitions, students present their projects and we bring in the industrial sector. We make a link between the engineering and the industrial sectors so that these projects and great innovations can be used in the field of industry.”

The creativity of the young engineers impressed the visitors.

Some engineers presented a project of water-fuelled vehicles as an alternative for gas-fuelled cars, avoiding the pollution of gasoline and finding a renewable source of fuel.

Others manufactured their own racing cars, although Egypt doesn’t manufacture cars.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Eng. Michael Sidney, fresh graduate, Ain Shams University:
“Our graduation project is to manufacture a formula racing car and use it by participating in a race in England called ‘Formula Students’. We travelled this year and we scored the 11th place worldwide. We faced many issues as Egypt doesn’t manufacture cars and we had to design and manufacture our racing car. Some parts were difficult to get, as they are not manufactured in Egypt such as the engine, which we got from a racing motorbike. Apart from this, we designed and manufactured all the car components here in Egypt.”

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Ahmed Mahmoud, Engineering student, Tanta University:
“Our graduation project is the water fuelled car. It is a car operating by water instead of gas due to the issues in the gas such as the pollution. We started searching for an alternative for the gasoline, and we find that the hydrogen is the best, which supplies three times the energy we get from gasoline. We started making electrical analysis in the water using a battery with water and applying 12 volts. It results in HHO gas that goes through the combustion engine through a flash arrestor to protect from backfire in the system so that the system is safe and secure.”

There are many other inventions such as the ROV or the Remotely Operated Vehicle which can be used as a spying robot under the far depth of water, lamps turning on and off by moving hands above, smart electric meters, etc, all designed and created by young Egyptian engineers.

The IEEE says that the EED is a symbol for the transitional stage of engineering and technology in Egypt.

The Dangerous Life of Bangladesh Ship...
Sitakund, Bangladesh
By Mais Istanbuli
10 Apr 2012

Ship-breaking is known as the breaking or recirculation of old ships for financial return. Old ships are sold so that the valuable steel can be reused. About 95 percent of a ship’s mass can be recycled.

Until the 1960s, ship-breaking was concentrated in western countries like the United States, Germany, United Kingdom or Italy. From the early 1980s, the majority of the world’s vessels taken out of service were sent to India, China, Pakistan or Bangladesh.

The workers at the ship-breaking yards in Sitakund, situated north of Chittagong in the Bay of Bengal, face the toughest working conditions of the whole country. Extremely hard labour, fatal working incidents, the exposure of abestos and toxic waste are among the deadly threats to those working in the ship-dismantling industry. Every step could be their last. Far away from their villages, the workers seldom see their families. They do all of this for only $1-3 per day.

Risky working conditions, environmental pollution and the adoption of child labor in the ship-breaking industry have drawn international attention on Bangladesh’s ship-dismantling. Changes occured but are far from international standards.

Over 100,000 workers are employed at ship breaking yards worldwide. It is estimated that some 50,000 people are directly employed in the ship-breaking industry in Bangladesh.

Local organisations in Bangladesh estimate that some 1,000-2,000 workers have died in the last 30 years, and many more have suffered serious injuries.

The ship breaking industry in Bangladesh is estimated worth an annual turn over of around 1.5 billion dollars.

Today access to the ship-breaking yards is very limited. Journalists and photographers, who covered grievance in the area, aren’t welcome anymore. The people of Bangladesh are aware of the problems and willing to change the situation.
The Labor Law Act 2006 has improved conditons on health, safety, working hours and compensation – but due to lack of political will and resources change is still not on the way.

Trial of Iron Tycoon Ahmed Ezz for Mo...
Cairo, Egypt

01 Apr 2012

Cairo, Egypt | April 1, 2012

Cairo Criminal Court adjourned on Sunday, April 1, the trial of iron tycoon and leader of the dismantled ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) Ahmed Ezz for money laundering of EGP 6 billion and 429 million (about USD 1.065 billion) to May 6.
[1 USD = 6.03800 EGP]

The delay was due to the absence of Ezz's lawyer Farid al-Deeb, who is also the lawyer of ousted president Hosni Mubarak, as he reportedly suffered angina and travelled to France for treatment.
Unprecedentedly, power went out and the judge ordered Ezz to come out of the dock to be seen. Some allege the power was deliberately cut by the security men to prevent photographers and cameramen from shooting.

In previous trials, the prosecution said Ezz profiteered from his position as CEO of Al-Dikhila steel factory, in which the state is a main shareholder, from 2001 to 2011.

In September 2011, Ezz was sent to ten years in prison for financial corruption.

Since the end of the Lebanese civil war in 1990, Lebanon has become a hot bed of both entertainment and news media production in the Arab world. Amongst the melee of risque Arabic music videos and luxury television commercials, the Shia political movement Hezbollah has proved to be one of the most media savvy institutions in the country, using film, television, music, and masterful political stagecraft to further its image in the minds of Lebanese and the international community. From the flashy music videos of Haifa Wehbe to the resistance videos of Hezbollah, this film follows the tumultuous post-civil war history of Lebanon through its fertile media industry.
