  • Sebhat Gebre-Egziabher- Untold Story By Petros Agegnehu

    Sebhat was born in 1928 in Tigray region near the historical town of Adwa in a village called Erba Gered. He published works of fiction and non fiction in French and Amharic. Some of his works are available "retold" in English. He also worked as a journalist and columnist for the Ethiopian HeraldAddis ZemenMenen magazine and other newspapers and magazines in his long writing career.[5]

    He is famous for pioneering the naturalist writing style in Amharic. He has a unique writing style which is not constrained by the traditional Ethiopian writing style, nor is his syntax orthodox. Even if he uses simple words and seemingly light prose, Sebhat's concepts are highly sophisticated and philosophical.[6]

    Sebhat originally intended to be a librarian. He visited Washington in 1960 and stayed a year. At that time he was intending to write in English. He decided however that Amharic suited his subject matter. He later visited France and received an award from UNESCO.

    Sebhat is the brother of the renowned scientist, Tewolde Berhan Gebre Egziabher.

    His lifestyle and philosophy however seems to attract many followers throughout Ethiopia. His openness is always admired by his followers.

    Sebhat died on February 20, 2012 in Addis Ababa at the age of 76.[1][2]

  • How to Get A US VISA

    E-2 Treaty Investor Visa Petition
An E-2 Visa is one of the nicest working visas as it allows you to run your own business and be an entrepreneur. While it periodically needs to be renewed, you can stay here in the U.S. as long as you like on the E-2. Normally, this type of E-2 Visa would require and investment around $100,000U.S. to successfully process. The more capital investment that is required for the business, the higher the investment. Additionally, your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years old can come as beneficiaries to your approved E-2. Your children will be able to go to school in the U.S. without having to get a separate student visa (as long as they are not in college.) The spouse will be permitted to apply for a work permit to work anywhere in the United States.  A great deal of the success of the E-2 Petition is how it is prepared. The higher the investment, the easier it is to get approved. The type of company that would either be purchased or the type of company that would start from scratch is wide open depending on what you would like to do. 
This petition is usually 2-4 inches thick. It consists of the petition itself, the complex business plan with numerous charts and figures, and the incorporation papers. Once submitted directly to the Consulate, it takes a few months for approval.The E-2 is a complicated U.S. Visa Petition and requires years of experience to do it properly. There are many issues that must be dealt with and argued in the petition itself such as marginality, substantiality, ownership, managerial vs. executive, tracing of funds, etc. My firm will get everyone of these issues and more properly addressed in the legal brief and the E-2 Presentation. Simply having the money to invest is only the start. My firm has been doing these petitions for years and the procedures for the briefs, incorporation, and complex business plan are in place and will be done correctly, efficiently and with the highest chance of success.It can also be submitted to U.S. Immigration for a change of status. However, keep in mind that with a change of status, you cannot keep that status when you leave the U.S. It is normally preferable to send the package directly to the U.S. Consulate or U.S. Embassy for adjudication.

  • Global Firepower Rank

    • Ranking does not simply rely on the total number of weapons available to any one country but rather focuses on weapon diversity within the number totals to provide a better balance of firepower available (i.e. fielding 100 minesweepers does not equal the strategic and tactical value of fielding 10 aircraft carriers).
    • Nuclear stockpiles are NOT taken into account but recognized / suspected nuclear powers receive a bonus.
    • Geographical factors, logistical flexibility, natural resources and local industry influence the final ranking.
    • Available manpower is a key consideration; nations with large populations tend to rank higher.
    • Land-locked nations are NOT penalized for lack of a navy; naval powers ARE penalized for lack of diversity in available assets.
    • NATO allies receive a slight bonus due to the theoretical sharing of resources.
    • Current political / military leadership is NOT taken into account.

    As of 4/1/2016 there are a total of (126) countries included in the GFP database.

  • How to Recover a Permanently Deleted Files

    Recover deleted files for free: Step 1. Download DiskDigger (download here). You don’t need to install it – just extract the contents of the .zip archive and run the .exe file. Remember that if you’ve already accidentally deleted some files, you shouldn’t download DiskDigger to the disk containing your lost files as it could overwrite your files and make it impossible to recover them. Ideally, download it before you actually need it.

    (Note that there are many free data recovery utilities. You don't have to use DiskDigger, but we've seen good results from it.)

    Recover deleted files for free: Step 2. Start DiskDigger. The opening screen shows all the disks so select the one containing your deleted files and click on ‘Next’ three times. The disk will now be scanned and any deleted files will be listed – this could take some time. If your missing files are listed, continue to the next step. If not you could try altering some of the options in the earlier screens.

  • why your smartphone is overheating

    Your phone overheats. But is it happening all by itself, or do you have apps running in the background that you don’t know about? Perhaps you’re gaming too much, or the environmental conditions are too extreme… the fact is, it’s difficult to pinpoint just why your smartphone is overheating.
