I work as a reporter for al-ahram newspaper in Cairo, Egypt. I am also freelancing with other publications regionally and internationally. Before that I was thew managing editor of a business magazine issued by the German Chamber in Egypt. I also worked as a director and producer in the Egyptian Satellite channels for four years.
I write about economy in general with all its fields. However, i am having special interest in energy, water and biotechnology. The Egyptian and the Arab readers in general are not used much to reading about those issues if they are not related to their careers. I believe that this is based specifically for the language and style used in presenting such scientific and economic issues, which tends to be rigid in most of the times. Maybe because those who write about those topics do not necessarily understand it in a way that would allow them to report it in simple way and be able to relate it to the daily life of the readers. I wish through this network I would be able to make some difference.

Hi Salwa,
Your special interest on water and biotechnology (and your other interests) strikes me as I work as Information Specialist for the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) based in the Philippines. I met some scientists from your country during my stint as a Consultant Science Editor/Writer for ICARDA in Syria. It would be nice if could exchange information on your areas of interest.

Best regards,

Hi Salwa...I just found your name on this network and find it strange that we don't know each other! Is there any way to get in touch with you? I'd like to tell you about the Arab Science Journalists Association.

What's new here? Well, the weekend just arrived, but I have to work anyway because I didn't work enough during the week. Hope you're free to take it easy -- and have a good weekend.
