Fans react to Mohamad Ramadan’s latest fleet of luxurious cars

CAIRO: Once again, Egyptian star Mohamad Ramadan sparked controversy when he posted on Saturday his fleet of luxurious cars on Instagram.
The actor shared a video of an orange McLaren 720S sports car, a red Ferrari 458 and a blue Lamborghini Aventador parked in his home.
“May God protect us from all evil on the roads, and grant my fans with better ones,” he captioned his video with this message.

Though he prayed for his fans to obtain better cars, many did not take kindly to the video he posted. A wave of mixed reactions on his account had comments ranging form those who were delighted for the actor, to those who envy him.
About a year ago, he stirred controversy when he shared a photo of a Lamborghini alongside a Rolls Royce he had purchased.
At the time, he explained his act by saying: “I like to share all my good moments with my fans.”
Ramadan is famous for his box office thriller films and record-breaking television series, usually aired during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Alaska man discovers 50-year-old message in bottle from Russian Navy

  • Then Russian Navy Capt. Anatolii Prokofievich Botsanenko wrote the letter when he was a 36-year-old aboard the Sulak
ANCHORAGE, Alaska: A man discovered a 50-year-old letter in a bottle from the Russian Navy on the shores of western Alaska.
Tyler Ivanoff found the handwritten Russian letter early this month while gathering firewood near Shishmaref about 600 miles (966 kilometers) northwest of Anchorage, television station KTUU reported.
“I was just looking for firewood when I found the bottle,” Tyler Ivanoff said. “When I found the bottle, I had to use a screwdriver to get the message out.”
Ivanoff shared his discovery on Facebook where Russian speakers translated the message to be a greeting from a Cold War Russian sailor dated June 20, 1969. The message included an address and a request for a response from the person who finds it.
Reporters from the state-owned Russian media network, Russia-1, tracked down the original writer, Capt. Anatolii Prokofievich Botsanenko, KTUU reported.
He was skeptical he wrote the note until he saw his signature on the bottom.
“There — exactly!” he exclaimed.
The message was sent while the then 36-year-old was aboard the Sulak, Botsanenko said. Botsanenko shed tears when the Russian television reporter told him the Sulak was sold for scrap in the 1990s.
Botsanenko also showed the reporter some souvenirs from his time on the ship, including the autograph of the wife of a famous Russian spy and Japanese liquor bottles, the latter kept over his wife’s protests.
Ivanoff’s discovery of the bottle was first reported by Nome radio station KNOM.
