  • Asmara Became UNESCO’s World Heritage Site

    Eritrea's capital, Asmara, has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list today. The announcement came during the 41st session of the World Heritage Committee that's taking place in Poland. Asmara has been described as a "Modernist City in Africa."

     

    The European Union is contributing to the conservation of Asmara's unique cultural and architectural heritage, in the framework of the EU program for Local Authorities.

     

    The EU has, in fact, signed in December 2016 a 2 year's cooperation program with the Asmara Heritage Project (AHP), part of the Department of Public Works Development of the Central Region Administration (Zoba Maekel) aiming at building the capacity for safeguarding Asmara's historic urban environment.

     

    The EU-funded program included training, capacity building and awareness raising components and will also support the finalization of the Urban Conservation Master Plan, which is among the key recommendations of the World Heritage Committee.

     

    Candidature of the city of Asmara was submitted to the World Heritage List on the 1 February 2016 and Asmara's application has finally approved today on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

     

    Making the respected list is hugely important for Asmara, as it can prompt tourism to the city as well provide financial means for preservation. Nine natural, 16 cultural, and four mixed sites have been nominated for examination this year.

     

    The committee will also inspect the conservation of 108 existing World Heritage sites as well as the 48 sites on the World Heritage in Danger List.

    Superstitious villagers have been living in fear since a sheep gave birth to this creature that was said by elders to be half-human half-beast and 'sent by the devil'.

    Many of the 4,000 residents and farmers of Lady Frere in Eastern Province, South Africa, were convinced that bestiality and witchcraft had led to the birth of the creature.

    The panic got so great that the Eastern Cape Department of Rural Development sent out experts to carry out tests after pictures of it spread like wildfire through the community.

    Chief Director of Veterinary Services Dr Lubabalo Mrwebi admitted that at first glance the lamb which was born dead did resemble a human being but was not part human.

    Dr Mrwebi said: 'We can confirm this not a hoax photo but that the severely deformed lamb was born by a sheep in Lady Frere this week which at a glance resembles a human form.

    1. Michelangelo 

    You must be wondering what Michelangelo has to do with all this. Well, he was the first to have been heard quoting, about the lower back dimples.

  • 6 Tips to Help You Recognize Fake Gadgets

    Top brands have lots of copycats, and sometimes fakes are made so well you’re almost unable to recognize them.

    We at Bright Side have gathered some tips that will help you recognize fake gadgets before buying them.

    Manufacturers of counterfeit products often neglect package design. The official retailer will always take care of even the slightest details of design and packaging of their own goods.

    Take a close look at the package, paying attention to the print quality: the font should be legible and consistent everywhere. Nothing should be loose inside. Manufacturers always fix their goods well so that nothing gets damaged during transportation. Even the seams and corners of the packaging film should be impeccable.

    First of all, pay attention to the material, then, take a look at the fonts, check the charger, take a look at the fonts and, last but not least, take a closer look at wires and plugs.

    Also, pay attention to the quality of the insulation and the symbols on it. The wire should be flexible and even-colored, while the markings mustn’t be erasable.
