Hamas Designated As A Terrorist Group By Egyptian Court

Cairo, Egypt- A court in Egypt has recently ruled that Hamas is to be considered a terrorist organization. Hamas is an Islamic group that resides mostly in the Gaza strip. The group was already at a bad relationship with the Egyptian government when the former president of the country, Mohammed Morsy, was ousted from office in a coup last 2013. The change in leadership angered the group which made them launch several attacks and protests in Egypt.
The Egyptian former president was a devout member of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist political organization and it has a deep bond with the Hamas organization. When Morsy was kicked out of office in the summer of 2013, the Muslim Brotherhood was labeled as a terrorist group several months later.

Egypt as a mediator between Israel and Pakistan

Hamas leaders and members condemned the decision made by the Egyptian court. The spokesperson for the terror organization said that the decision was not foreseen and one that is dangerous targeting the people of Palestine. He further stated that Egypt’s judgment will deeply hurt the reputation of Egypt.

Egypt has been a neutral nation to the bickering between Israel and Palestine. For years it has played a very important role in the peace negotiations between the warring parties. Egypt’s reputation was that one that is impartial. With the new high court ruling, this will surely create a new turn for the mediator role of Egypt.
The Egyptian court that made the ruling is the Urgent Matters Court. The court decision was based on evidences that Hamas supported insurgents and have series of attacks in the Sinai Peninsula. This region has been under hostility for recently.

On another note, the armed wing of the terror group, al Qassam Brigades, was also ruled as a terrorist group by Egypt’s Urgent Matters Court last month.


Hamas is an organization founded in Palestine. It is a Palestinian Islamic group but has been designated by several countries to be a terrorist group. Among the countries that expressed blatant comments that the group is terroristic as evidenced by their activities are the United States, Australia, Japan, Israel, United Kingdom and Canada. In Jordan, the government prohibits the entry of Hamas members. In other countries such as China, Iran, Qatar and Turkey, the organization is not perceived as a terrorist organization.


Tips In Creating Content For The Medical Industry

Creation of content for the medical industry can be intimidating because there are regulations that have to be complied with otherwise, the content creator risks getting into trouble with the government agencies that regulate the industry. To be on the safe side, the industry ignores content marketing altogether. This is unfortunate because content marketing is tailor made for the medical industry,

If you are considering content for a medical practitioner, a chiropractor, a dentist or a hospital, it has to be done in a safe and effective manner while ensuring HIPAA compliance.

  • Content must not have the intention to diagnose or treat a disease.
  • Patient information must never be used for the purpose of marketing unless there is written permission from the patient that allows you to do so.
  • Content with medical information must come with an innate amount of authority or expert advice.

If content marketing is in the form of a blog post, it must answer questions that are relevant to the audience. For example, pediatricians must provide answers to the most common questions that will be asked by parents. The answers will help the parents understand their children’s health. The goal of content marketing is to create a relationship that is built on trust between you and the parent.

Another form of content marketing strategy is hosting a webinar where patients can log in and ask general questions that they may have. The anonymity of the patient must be respected when the question is answered. Arrangements for a follow up appointment can be made because the webinar is not telemedicine.

Social media is an important platform for the medical industry because it allows the health professionals to create a relationship with the customers. Social media allows customers to see the human side of the company and its personalities.

Content marketing can bring the right traffic to a site that will eventually become leads and loyal customers. Allow crewdo to take care of your content and inbound marketing so that unknown prospects can be guided into becoming customers and then repeat customers. Focus your efforts on what you do best and let crewdo do the rest.


Choosing The Right TEFL Placement For Your Plan To Teach English Abroad

Holly Catling who is 24 years old graduated in London when she decided to teach English abroad. She was placed in Japan where in her 2 months of teaching English, a colleague kindly told her that it is not socially acceptable in the country to point at students who are asked to answer a question. It was actually considered a rude hand gesture in the Japanese culture.

Holy shared that she has no idea and the gesture seemed like a normal thing for her. Without her knowing, pointing finger at someone is not accepted in Japanese etiquette. The other teachers did not bother to tell her because they think that the students should learn that people from foreign countries have different ways of behaving and acting.

As a matter of fact, the students are not the only individuals that are learning from the process but Holly as well. She admitted that she has matured greatly after teaching for a year as an assistant at the junior high school located in Yosano, Japan. It is a coastal town that is two hours away from Kyoto when travelling by train. She claimed that teaching there was a great experience and resulted to her being more self-reliant and improved professionalism when it comes to work and deadlines.

The placement of Holly was processed by JET programme or Japan Exchange and Teaching programme which is a graduate scheme managed by the Japanese government in order to improve the way language is taught in school while promoting a better understanding of foreign cultures.

According to an assistant coordinator working for JET at their London office, the idea is that the person assigned by JET will teach English the way they do in their native tongue in order for the students to have a perspective of their culture which will make the learning more authentic as well as relevant.

It is important that if you are to teach in Thailand or Japan or any other countries, that you chose the right placement for you in order to be assisted accordingly.

Why Process Servers Require Stronger Protection While Executing The Job

During the course of their job, process servers face some serious risks from people who refuse to attend legal proceedings. The primary job of the process server is to deliver legal documents to an individual who is involved in a court case. To ensure the safety of process servers, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that was sponsored by state senator Catherine Young into a law that elevates assaults on process servers from misdemeanor into D felony.

Process servers are critical to the implementation of justice and it only right for them to receive stronger protection. It is unacceptable for anyone to intentionally injure a process server when he is only executing a job that is required by the courts and the citizens of New York. In recent years, incidents of process servers being assaulted on account of the job have significantly increased.

There is an instance when a process server was confronted by an individual carrying a metal pipe after knocking on a door and stating the reason for the visit. Another individual came to the door, pointed a gun and threatened to shoot and kill the process server if he does not leave immediately. People forget that the poor process server is simply doing his job.

Another example is a 2013 case wherein a process server in Staten Island who was delivering civil court documents was threatened with a shotgun. In another incident that happened in the same year in Kenmore, the process server fell down the stairs after a dog was intentionally released while he was delivering court documents.

By elevating the repercussions for those who threaten and assault process servers during the performance of their duties, stronger protection is provided by the state of New York. This is a very important public protection measure to reduce the risks faced by the process servers.

There is Process Server who is available to answer your call immediately so that documents can be served according to your instructions. You can expect 80% success rate during the first attempt to deliver the documents. After the documents have been served, you will be immediately notified on the completion of the job.


Issues With Tree Trimming In The Neighborhood Of Monroeville

In Monroeville, residents have expressed their concerns over the way the utility company prunes trees that are near the power lines. Most of the residents have issues regarding the trimming of trees and the issue has always come up during council meetings. According to Councilman Paul Caliari of Ward 5, all the pine trees had one side pruned off by Duquesne Light last summer. Later in the year, when Monroeville suffered from strong winds and bad weather, one of the trees was blown into the power line and caught fire.

According to Caliari, when one side of the trees was cut off, it resulted into imbalance. This was the reason why the tree fell into the power line. However, Duquesne Light spokesman said that directional pruning will encourage the tree to grow away from the power lines in the future. They believe that the overall health of the tree will be protected. Directional pruning is not actually aesthetically pleasing but Duquesne Light believes that is an approved practice to ensure that there is a safe clearance from power lines. Customers will have a safer and more secure environment in their homes.

Duquesne Light is authorized to use pruning practices that are compliant with the standards provided by American National Standards Institute and the International Society of Arboriculture. Removal of tree growth is routine to ensure that the customers of the utility company do not suffer from power outages. At least 45,000 miles of overhead power lines are free and clear of vegetation encroachments so the power can safely reach 1 million customers in Allegheny and Beaver counties.

On the other hand, the council of Monroeville is planning to file an appeal on the tree trimming with the Public Utility Commission. Trees improve the aesthetics of city streets, parks, trails and the general environment and they have to be pruned properly to ensure their health and longevity.

There are instances when tree lopping is the most practical solution to prevent the branches from interfering with power lines; however, tree lopping Perth will ensure that damages to the tree are minimized in the best way possible.


Why Fall Pruning Is Not Recommended

Majority of the homeowners thought that the best time to do their running on their shrubs and trees is during the season of fall. The truth is that majority of the pruning should be done in the early days during the seasons of spring and summer.

During fall, it is important to perform other tasks such as removing all the dead branches on your trees and cleaning up the surrounding area.

According to a horticulturist, Jamie Kidd who is from K-State Research and Extension located in Shawnee County, fall is not the best time to perform pruning because if pruning is done then you are stimulating the plant to start a new growth. The problem with this is that if you prune and fresh tender parts of the plants started to grow, it will just be frozen eventually and this will kill the plant.

Kidd added that it is worst if the season of hard frost starts earlier than usual. There was a time in November 2014 when all the trees have not even lost all their leaves and a fast and hard frost arrived out of nowhere. It is unusual because that occurrence of a deep freeze usually happens around December or January. When the 2015 spring came, the trees have already gained a new canopy of leaves but because of the frost they were not able to get enough food to store into the roots. When spring of 2016 came, the tree leaves became spindly and eventually the tree tops turned out dead because of the lack of food stored.

This could easily happen if there is a quick frost that will arrive or if you have done pruning during the fall and then the new parts will get frozen.

Barry Woodruff who works at Topeka Landscape Inc. located at 3220 S.W. Auburn Road, said that heavy pruning is not necessary unless the shrub is growing out of control or if it has no more room to grow in its allotted space. If you are planning to prune in Perth, it is best to consult professional tree loppers before doing so.
