Report by dive guide, Daniele Zanoni

Ear damage

The human ear is capable of hearing sounds in the range of 20Hz and 20KHz. In the inner ear, inside the cochlea, there are several microscopic hair cells. These cells respond to mechanical sound vibrations by sending electrical impulses to the auditory nerve. The brain then processes the information and lets us "hear" the sound. Different cells are responsible for different frequencies. Over time, a part of these cells may get damaged or broken. If the damage is extensive, which means involving a large number of hair cells, hearing loss will result. The high frequency area of the inner ear is the one that is most often damaged by loud sound. In order to understand what loud means, we have to set up a scale and a threshold after which the noise/sound will become dangerous. Sound level is measured in decibels (dB). This number will tell you, in a way, how bigger the sound is compared to the threshold of perception of an average human (0 dB) and it is expressed in a logarithmic scale.

Bay View Hotel New Pool sm.JPGSharm takes 'New Year, New Start' seriously and moves home!

Manager Duncan McAllister reports...

Out with the old, in with the new...

so, when the Rosetta Hotel said they wanted to build a shopping mall and could we move quickly, we did exactly that!

Bay View Hotel New Dive Centre sm.JPG

With superb support from all the staff, in just four weeks we moved an operational dive centre over the busy Christmas and New Year period. We are now located in our cosy new home at the Bay View Hotel in the centre of Naama Bay. It's a great facility with two bigger classrooms than before, a much better training pool built specifically for modern diving, larger toilet facilities, three bars (one pool side) and a hotel management team who can't wait to welcome you.

Specific mention must go to Steve Kehoe who went from dive instructor back to being a chippie; Keith who left his precious beach and became our all round handy man and Donna and Denis our resident painters and decorators.

Visit our website for great new offers at Bay View Hotel and here are some photos of our new home where we look forward to welcoming you.
