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.

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.

Most people think that in order to get the job they want, they must prove capable of independence and doing things on their own. However, you must realize that doing that can also be limiting that is why you must seek out the help and advice from other people as well.
  2. Develop your passion. People often say that you should follow your passion. This isn’t wrong in any way.

  4. Refrain from applying for a job immediately. Once you find a job BKK, don’t send an application right away. It would be better if you learn more about the company.

Helen Walbey

Daring Woman In The Motorbike Business

In a world that is dominated by men, no one would think that a woman such as Helen Walbey is excelling at the industry. She is running a successful motorbike business while busy studying to get her PhD. At the same time, she is also one of the lecturers at the University of South Wales and employed as the diversity portfolio chairman of FSB.

It started over 12 years ago at a time when she and her husband, Steve, are still in the catering business. They are selling food that are catered for vegetarian and vegan and all of those foods are organic. Steve suffered a small burn in one of their working days which became infected and he nearly lost an arm.

He was admitted at the hospital and stayed there for months. This is when their business was not able to meet the bookings with clients and they were buried in debts.

She bought motorcycle parts, repaired old ones and sold it for a profit. And then the rest is history.

Resume Blunders You Should Avoid When Applying For An English Teaching Job

Resume Blunders You Should Avoid When Applying For An English Teaching Job

When applying for jobs, everyone wants to have a resume that stands out. Your resume doesn’t just show how qualified you are for a job. They also reflect the personality of the people they are representing. That is why you would need a good resume if you want to have a good chance at getting hired.

The same goes for TEFL jobs. While some TEFL training schools like Pro TEFL guarantee job placements once you’ve finished training with them, you would still need to write a resume that shows how professional you are and how qualified you are for the job in order to get hired and be taken into the country you wish to work in.

If you want your resume to standout, make sure to avoid these resume blunders.

  1. Sending informal emails. If you plan to write a message to your potential future employer on Facebook or sending him an email, make sure to always write in a formal tone. You wouldn’t want to begin your message with a ‘Hey’ otherwise the employer wouldn’t even bother reading your resume. Observe proper grammar, punctuations and capitalizations along with using proper greetings and closings.
  2. Sending an over the top, heavily-designed, colourful resume. There is a reason why resumes have a simple format and while you may have shown that you can use Photoshop, if you’re applying for a TEFL job, it doesn’t really have any relevance.
  3. Adding irrelevant skills and hobbies on your resume. Employers want a direct to the point resume showcasing the necessary skills, hobbies and interests related to the position and the company.
  4. Making demands for higher salary and better benefits. Just think, if you make demands now even without being interviewed yet, how does this reflect on you? You may think you’re more than qualified for the position but the employers beg to differ.
  5. Adding inspirational quotes or messages. It’s not wrong to show a little bit of your personality but including an inspirational message on your resume is just outrageous. The employer is looking for a skilled employee and not a motivational speaker.

 

Airbags Can Be Deadly In The Event Of A Crash

Airbags Can Be Deadly In The Event Of A Crash

Inflators were introduced to cars as a safety device to prevent the loss of life in the event of a crash. However, the problem is some inflators tend to explode and expel fragments of metal during the process. About 63.8 million cars in the United States were installed with unsafe Takata airbag inflators so that the government is doubling its efforts at recalling the inflators. The recall can take a while because there are tens of millions of cars affected.

The Takata airbag inflator was said to have killed at least 12 people – 11 in the United States and one in Malaysia. 100 others have been reported hurt whenever a minor collision triggered the airbag to explode. National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA) administrator Mark Rosekind advised motorists to take action immediately because there are parts available for the repair of the airbags. Top priority to replace airbags goes to areas with high absolute humidity that includes American south-east and island territories because humid conditions can alter the composition of chemicals that can deploy the airbag and increase the likelihood of an explosion.

Recall of the airbags has been accelerated to prevent explosions when the airbags are deployed. Of the affected 28.8 million cars in the United States, about 8.17 million have been fixed. However, the accelerated recall will add about 35 million to 40 million new cars on the list of affected cars. On the other hand, the defect does not include all Takata airbag inflators. Make and models of affected cars are listed on the NHTSA website. Models included in the expanded recall have not been listed but vehicle owners can sign up for the alert tailored to their car model. Car models that have been affected are so numerous that it may take years for unsafe airbags to be replaced.

While on the topic of cars, Ferrari 488 for sale is gaining the attention and interest of many luxury car enthusiasts. Ferrari 488 was intended to replace the Ferrari 458. Ferrari 488 is powered by a 3.9-liter twin turbocharged V8 that has a higher output than 458’s engine.
