|CAIRO , March 22 (Xinhua) -- A shark attack early Sunday killed a German tourist in an Egyptian Red Sea resort, medical sources said.
The shark bit off the 52-year-old German's leg while diving with his wife in the town of al-Quseir, some 650 km south east the capital, Mohamed al Sayed, Health Ministry Deputy in the Red Sea province said.
The man died before reaching hospital, the source added.
Reasons behind the attack were not disclosed yet.
The Red Sea, a tourist attractive area full of resorts, is a major hub for diving.
Shark attacks are not common in Egypt, but in 2010 another German female tourist was killed and other five Russian were seriously wounded in one of Sharm el-Sheikh resorts. The attack then has forced the government to close off several beaches in the town for a week.
Tourism sector is one of the main pillars of the Egyptian economy which has been battered over the past four years.
According to tourism ministry, nearly ten million tourists visited Egypt in 2014.
Taking a text or an image to the next level is extremely easy, if it involves using Photoshop. Photoshop tools help in giving the image a 3D look and feel. If the images are not realistic, viewers loose their interest in it after a glance, while realistic images keep the viewers stuck. Shadow and reflection is one effect that makes this possible.
Everywhere we go our shadow follows and so does our reflection. It is the case with things. If this phenomenon is given to an image, it automatically becomes more natural and feels more innate. Even though this is usually applied on images, using this effect on a text can be innovative. While images can be made appealing, text is usually found to be boring. If a shadow and reflection effect is added to a text, it is made pleasing and interesting to read. A nice looking shadow behind a text and reflection below it can do the work. Ones the technique is known, the simple effect can be added to as many texts for a remarkable outcome. As long as you are familiar with the two concepts, making a text realistic is a simple task for you.
Below are some of the things that one should keep in mind before using a shadow and reflection effect on the text:
Creating a reflection of words like ‘g’ and ‘y’ is a little trickier. One should avoid usage of these words, if you are a novice. The reflection has to be made a little smaller than the text size, to give it a more natural look. When you make a shadow of a text and then print it, the background color in the text blocks the drop shadow and it appears to be of a different shade than the rest of the document. For this one must make sure that the background color is not a spot color but a CMYK. Another solution to this is that the file can be exported to PDF, which helps in flattening the transparency. The document should have a white background, for the shadow to be clearly visible.
The process usually takes a while, because it involves two different processes. Usually the text is given a reflection first and then the shadow. These are the two elements on which a 3D image totally relies. Even though the shadows are usually in black and white, a colorful shadow can be used to give a particular text more attention. Reflection of an image can be used in water, glass, surface, etc. and a shadow of an image can be positioned either on the bottom, top, left, and right or even at the center of the image.
Ones that you have understood the basics of the effect, and got advanced knowledge of the Photoshop features and tools, you can amend the text and the layers in many different ways. The text along with the shadow and reflection effect can be giving a standing feel, and a moving look.

My mother bred and raised Bichon Frises for 23 years. I have been a Bichon Frise breeder for 13 years. Between what my mother taught me and my own personal experience I know a little something about Bichons.
The reason I'm addressing this issue is because, over the years I've had quite a few people ask me; "How do I stop my Bichon Frise from eating his own poop?"
This is a habit that many dogs (of all breeds) develop.
Well, keep the faith! Help is on the way.
There are a couple of things you can do to break your dog of this nasty habit.
One: Try putting some diced pineapple in with his food. Yes, I said diced pineapple. About 2-3 teaspoons. When the pineapple is digested it produces an enzyme which deters the dog from, you know, doing what we're trying to make him stop. Some Bichons may not eat pineapple. Our little male, Walker will eat just about anything. But, our female, Annie, is very finnicky. But, I think most Bichons will go for it.
Two: If, for whatever reason, the pineapple doesn't do the trick, there is a product called "Deter" which has the same effect. Give him 1-2 tablets per day (depending on size) for two weeks. It has been proven to be effective. You can find it at a discount price at .
I hope I have been of some help. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to email me at
Wishing you and your Bichon happiness always,

It is widely acknowledged as the guiding force that has driven the human civilization for over 2500 years now. It is also the place where three continents, namely Europe, Asia and Africa, and three varying climatic conditions submerge into one.
