China to plan huge project in Egypt on the Mediterranean Sea

Egyptian media reports revealed on Thursday that Minister of Trade and Industry Ahmed Samir reportedly discussed the establishment of a major Chinese industrial zone on the Mediterranean. The project aims to provide the needs of the local market, and export to the European and American markets. Samir also discussed a proposal to settle commercial transactions in the local currencies of both countries, and discussed the proposal to establish a branch of a Chinese bank inside Egypt, in coordination with the relevant Chinese authorities, which will contribute to facilitating trade exchange between the two countries. The Egyptian Minister held an expanded discussion session with Chinese Minister of Commerce, Wang Wentao, and his accompanying delegation, to explore ways to enhance cooperation between the two countries in various economic, investment and trade fields. Samir said that the meeting emphasized the interest in advancing joint relations between the two countries as part of a comprehensive strategic partnership. It also emphasized Egypt’s interest in holding the ninth session of the Joint Economic, Commercial and Technical Cooperation Committee between the two countries – the last session was held in October 2021. The meeting dealt with coordination to hold the first meeting of the trade facilitation group between the two sides to diversify the structure of Egyptian exports, facilitate the access of exports of agricultural crops, and study increasing the access of Egyptian products to Chinese markets, he added. Egypt and China boast strategic relations that represent a pillar for strengthening economic, trade and investment cooperation between both nations, he said. Samir noted Egypt’s keenness to support further cooperation between Cairo and Beijing and advance it to broader horizons during the next stage, commensurate with the already strong ties between the two countries.

‘Soaps are collapsing’ – screenwriter on last day of filming Doctors

The BBC soap will come to an end on screen later this year after the corporation axed the show due to “super inflation in drama production”. Set in a Midlands GP practice, the show – launched in 2000 – has seen Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, This Morning’s Alison Hammond, Ruthie Henshall, Fantastic Beasts film series actor Eddie Redmayne and Sheridan Smith all make appearances. In a series of posts on X, formerly Twitter, on Friday, Philip Ralph explained as a 19-year writer on the show he was “personally impacted” by the “disastrous decision” to cancel the soap. He said in its 24-year history, Doctors has given “opportunity and experience” to budding actors, writers and production staff. “Over 600 guest actors every year likewise got the chance to work, be seen, renew their faith in their abilities, and keep going,” he added. “A writing team of up to 60 writers crafted original, bonkers, moving, real (and often surreal!) stories based around the lives of our regulars.” He also said that “there is nowhere in the industry” for TV workers to find the experience to get into the industry. “The TV industry is contracting,” Ralph, who also worked on Holby City which was axed in 2021, said. “Production across the board is way down. “(Union) Bectu recently surveyed its members and found 68% of them are currently out of work. Doctors was a much-needed ‘finger in the dam’ of this terrible situation. And now it’s gone with nothing to replace it. “Without opportunity and experience, the TV industry is simply not a sustainable profession. Now you might well point me towards a million schemes and opportunities for new writers, producers, and crews to gain early career experience.. “But if there is no work available for them beyond that, and even experienced creatives are unable to find work, then you simply do not have a viable industry.” He said this “excludes those from less well-off and more diverse backgrounds” as they will not be able to make the same sacrifices while waiting for work. “The soaps are collapsing,” Mr Ralph added. “Mid scale drama is contracting. This leaves just the high profile writers and creatives succeeding, and everyone else scrabbling around for scraps, hoping to somehow ‘win the lottery’ and get onto an existing show or…– even more miraculous in the current climate – get their own original series idea commissioned. “There’s no ‘career ladder’ left. There’s incredible good fortune – or there’s nothing. And that’s no way to build and grow a sustainable industry.” He added that outside of the impact on the industry and staff it is also “disastrous for the tone of public discourse” as he claimed the soap is a positive show compared to other dramas. “Don’t get me wrong – no TV show has the right to continue to exist if ratings fall or tastes change,” he also said. “But Doctors was a success. Its ratings were high. Its audience was loyal. It cost next to nothing, and the benefits of making it clearly far outweighed the expense.” Ralph claimed the real reason was due to the BBC’s budget being squeezed due to the corporation’s licence fee being frozen in recent years. “I believe every crisis is an opportunity,” he also said. “Times of change are times of renewal. Every storyteller knows that endings are just beginnings in disguise.” Announcing the decision to end Doctors, which will see its final episode airing in December 2024, the BBC also cited “further investment” to refurbish the Birmingham filming site. The BBC licence fee is set to rise in April, to £169.50 a year in line with September’s (Consumer price index) CPI, a way of calculating inflation at a lower rate than previously used. The corporation previously said this would “require further changes on top of the major savings that we are already delivering”.

50-year-old among 5 more women arrested for Haldwani violence

The Uttarakhand police have arrested five women in connection to the violent protests in Haldwani on February 8 in which five people were killed. The five women, aged between 25 and 50 years, are residents of Banbhoolpura, the police said. This takes the total number of arrests in connection with the violence to 89. The violence erupted after the administration conducted a drive to demolish a mosque and a madrasa allegedly built on Nazool land. As stones were pelted, cars torched and the local police station surrounded by a mob, the administration called for shoot-at-sight orders. The Nainital police informed that three FIRs were filed at the Banbhoolpura police station for the alleged attack at the police station, vandalising parked vehicles, and violence during the anti-encroachment drive. “To arrest the miscreants involved in the above-mentioned violent incident, various teams have been formed under the direction of Prahlad Narayan Meena, SSP Nainital. Based on CCTV footage and other evidence, police teams raided the houses located around the incidents and in the above-mentioned cases, 84 miscreants were arrested and illegal weapons and cartridges were recovered from their possession. In addition to that, five women involved in the above-mentioned violent incident have been identified and arrested by the police team,” said the Nainital police in a statement. Abdul Malik, who is considered to be the main accused in the case, and his son Abdul Moeed were already arrested. This was despite a letter submitted by Malik’s representatives to the authorities claiming that he was in Noida, Delhi and Greater Noida around the time of the violence. An FIR registered on the complaint of Banbhoolpura police station in-charge Neeraj Bhakuni, however, alleged that when the demolition process started, the father and son and 14 others led the mob.

Tesco shares ‘free’ hack to keep potatoes fresh for up to six months

Tesco has shared an unusual hack to keep your potatoes fresh for up to six months – and it’s completely free. It’s an easy way to cut down on food waste and make every penny count: “Potatoes are one of the most versatile veggies”. They can even have a great shelf life, lasting for months, if you know how to store potatoes properly. Want to know how to stop your spuds from sprouting, going green, wrinkling and more? ” the supermarket chain asked. Read more: You shouldn’t drink coffee first thing in the morning – and exact time to have it instead It added: “By following a few simple steps, you can keep your potatoes nearly as fresh as the day you bought them, for up to 6 months.” A couple of weeks after the weekly shop, potatoes will start to sprout, shrivel, shrink, and soften, especially if kept in the wrong conditions. But Tesco says: “Your spuds need air circulation, so don’t suffocate them in a plastic bag,” reports Birmingham Live. It added: “Potatoes must be kept in a cool dark place, otherwise the light will cause them to photosynthesize and you guessed it sprout. So, if you want your spuds to stay in tip-top condition, we recommend popping them in a paper bag and stashing them away in a dark place of your choosing: a porch cupboard or garden shed are all great options, and there’s always the fridge (if you’ve got the space).” “It’s important not to wash the potatoes, as this adds moisture that can encourage them to sprout. Instead, get rid of most of the dirt by brushing it off,” they said. Tesco also advised: “Store in a well-ventilated, cool, dry place below 10 degrees Celsius.” “Check every few weeks to ensure that there aren’t any sprouted or spoiled spuds in the batch, as they can ruin all your hard work.”
