The missing Wylie woman found inside her minivan at the bottom of a pond last week drowned in what the medical examiner’s office has ruled as an accidental death.The Collin County medical examiner’s office released the results on Monday in the death of Almaz Gebremedhin, 42.
Gebremedhin was last seen just before 5:30 a.m. Oct. 2 headed to work at the Garnet Hill Rehabilitation and Skilled Care nursing home. She was reported missing later that day.
Her body was found Nov. 9 inside her Chevy Venture by a team from Illinois that specializes in underwater searches. The husband-and-wife team used side-image sonar equipment to locate the van submerged in Muddy Creek Farms along McMillen Road. The pond is located along Gebremedhin’s usual route to work.

We think most of you would agree with us Ethiopia is moving forward. Despite the challenges, the country is continuing to register growth both in economic and social development terms! The economic gains it had so far is an open secret but the social development may not be. One of the growing pain challenges is the continuous tag of war between the government and the fledgling private press. The private media is continuously tasting the water by clearly violating the law of the land and the government is strictly enforcing the law and putting editors and bloggers to jail.
In a normal developed country the private press finds ways to work within the law and still play its role as the watch man. Equally true, in a developed and democratic world, the government also finds ways to accommodate the private media despite their role is to investigate and expose the government excess.We understand Ethiopia is still developing and has many challenges it can spent its meager resources rather than spent it in managing crisis that may be caused by the irresponsible private media. However we think the government can help the development of a democratic and responsible society by leaning more towards tolerance when it comes to some of the private press editors and bloggers in jail. The best tools the government has in its hand to use is the pardon process! And it should use it to pardon some of the jailed journalist who have served enough and were jailed for simple transgression of the law not for committing or intending to commit a crime. The face book and twitter generation journalists who often play copycat to any uprising elsewhere in the world can be tamed and their plan disrupted easily without a long term jail. It saddens us to note the image of Ethiopia as far as democracy goes is not that good outside Ethiopia! We like it or not the high priests of the west have managed to tarnish its images because of the many editors and bloggers in jail at the moment. If the government plays this game differently it can win back the image battle and change the country’s image the same way it did with its economic success. Have Your Say and share with readers if there is a benefit to release some of the journalist and bloggers in jail! Source (Aigaforum.com)

The capital city of Ethiopia is founded by the late wife of Menelik II , princess Taitu about 128 years ago . According to historians, Princess Taitu was very impressed by the natural climate of the place and more importantly she used loving to have shower from the natural fountain called FELUHA. . In fact the name FINFINE was given at the time since the water sprinkled up by its own.
Since then the beloved city Addis Abeba ( New flower ) remains the capital city of the country and at the same time the seat of the Government , Diplomats , Big international and continental institutions. Our guest of November 16, 2014 Radio program will tell us about how the city was founded and explains the original sub-citys names ( like Doro Manekia, Piassa Gulele, Ere Bekentu, Kasanachis , and many mores ) . It is a must listen interview especially as we are remembering the 128 foundation of the city.
On the second part of the program we present to you the latest agreement of China and US over reducing the emission of CO2 in the next 29 year as well as the latest discovery of how Rosita ( a man made satellite) who left our planet 10 years ago successfully landed on flying comet. As we are excited by this news , we are also questioning what real benefits it will bring in changing the economy, the life standard or reducing poverty to the majority of the people here on earth.
