The largest travel guide-book publisher, Lonely Planet, cataloged Ethiopia among the top ten 2017 world tourist destinations.
The travel publisher indicated that visitors would be overwhelmed by the beauty of country's scenery. It also highlighted the rewarding attractions: "Whether they [tourists] are trekking in the Semien Mountains to watch wildlife that roams nowhere else on Earth, climbing to a church carved into a remote cliff face in Tigray or boating across the serene waters of Lake Tana to visit an age-old monastery.
The launch of new airline links in 2017 would make the country more accessible than ever and urges tourists to be one of the first to hop on board, it said.

Shut Down vs. Sleep vs. Hibernate
Shut Down: This is the power-off state most of us are familiar with. When you shut down your computer, all your open programs close and the computer shuts down your operating system. A computer that’s shut down uses almost no power. However, when you want to use your computer again, you’ll have to turn it on and go through the typical boot-up process, waiting for your hardware to initialize and startup programs to load.
Sleep: Also known as Sleep or Standby. In sleep mode, the computer enters a low-power state. Power is used to keep the computer’s state in memory, but other parts of the computer are shut down and won’t use any power. When you turn on the computer, it will snap back to life within just a few seconds. You won’t have to wait for it to boot up – everything will be right where you left off. However, this uses more power than shutting down or hibernating your computer.
Hibernate: Your computer saves its current state to your hard drive, essentially dumping the contents of its RAM into a file on its hard drive. When you boot up the computer, it will load the previous state from your hard drive into its RAM. This allows you to save your computer’s state, including all your open programs and data, and come back to it later. It takes longer to resume from hibernate than sleep, but hibernate uses much less power than sleep. A computer that’s hibernating uses about the same amount of power as a computer that’s shut down.
If you put your computer to sleep and its battery becomes critically low, the computer will automatically go into hibernate mode to save your state.
When To Shut Down, Sleep, and Hibernate
Different people treat their computers differently. Some people always shut down their computers and never take advantage of the convenience of the sleep and hibernate states, while some people run their computers 24/7.
When To Sleep: Sleep is particularly useful if you’re stepping away from your computer for a small amount of time. You can put your computer to sleep to save electricity and battery power. When you need to use your computer again, you can resume from where you left off in just a few seconds. Your computer will always be ready to use when you need it.
When To Hibernate: Hibernate saves more power than sleep. If you won’t be using your computer for a while – say, if you’re going to sleep for the night – you may want to hibernate your computer to save electricity and battery power. However, hibernate is slower to resume from. If you’re hibernating or shutting down your computer every time you step away from it throughout the day, you may be wasting a lot of time waiting for it.
When To Shut Down: Most computers will resume from hibernate faster than they will boot up from shut down, so most people will probably want to hibernate their laptops instead of shutting them down. However, some computers or software may not work properly when resuming from hibernate, in which case you’ll want to shut down your computer instead. It’s also a good idea to shut down (or at least restart) your computer occasionally – most Windows users have noticed that Windows needs an occasional reboot.
Making Your Choice
Once you’ve made your choice, you can control what happens when you press the power button on your computer or close the lid on your laptop. To do so, press the Windows key, type Power buttons, and press Enter. You’ll see the power button options in the Windows Control Panel. (On Windows 8, you’ll need to click the Settings option on the search screen after typing Power buttons.)

Ethiopian Premier League club Ethiopia Bunna have sacked Serbian manager Nebojša Vučićević after a dreadful start of the season.
The club confirmed the news on their official Facebook page by noting further details will be communicated in the coming days regarding Vučićević’s dismissal.
Assistant trainer Gezaghen Ketema assumed the coaching role as former club captain Edelu Dereje become assistant coach.
It has been a rocky road for the former Partizan Belgrade attacker Vučićević. His Ethiopia Bunna side managed to win only two ties out of the 9 league encounters. The trainer saw his side losing an away game against newly promoted side Woldia SC last Friday just days after beating arch rivals Kidus Giorgis in Sheger Derby. A series of unimpressive results are believed to trigger the Serbs dismissal.

British taxpayers' money will no longer be used to fund a five-member Ethiopian girl band, the government has said.
International Development Secretary Priti Patel announced a review of the funding last month after reports that pop group Yegna received £5.2m.
Girl Effect, the Ethiopian group which manages Yegna and promotes women's rights in the country, said its aims had been "wilfully misrepresented". But the government said there are "more effective ways" to invest UK aid.
Yegna has been the subject of a long-running campaign by the Daily Mail. It dubbed the band "Ethiopia's Spice Girls" saying that grants to the group were a waste of money.
The UK's Department for International Development said its partnership with Girl Effect has ended following the review, but insisted that "empowering women and girls around the world remains a priority". It said the decision had not been influenced by press coverage of Yegna.
"We judge there are more effective ways to invest UK aid," a spokeswoman said, adding that the government will "deliver even better results for the world's poorest and value for taxpayers' money".

Miruts Yifter, an Ethiopian running legend dubbed "Yifter the Shifter" for his ability to power away from rivals, was laid to rest at a packed funeral in Toronto on Tuesday.
Yifter, a distance runner who won two gold medals in the 5,000- and 10,000-metre events at the 1980 Moscow Olympics and won bronze medals earlier at the 1972 Munich Games, died at 72 after battling respiratory problems.
"He's a national icon," said Yonas Tadssa, a friend of Yifter's who also hails from Ethiopia.
"He's our hero."
His victories put Ethiopia on the map in terms of running, and he's still regarded as one of the country's greatest athletes. Haile Gebrselassie — who still holds one of the world's fastest marathon times — recently said he owes his entire career to Yifter,
Yet during his career, Yifter was criticized by Ethiopia's former military regime for not winning gold medals at the Munich Games, and he was briefly jailed upon his return home. Tadssa said Yifter, who left Ethopia for Canada in 2000, wouldn't have been able to live comfortably in his home country, something he said was a shame.
Instead, the great runner came to Toronto — a city that knows far more about hockey and baseball players than distance runners.
Tadssa said Yifter was never one to brag about his success. "He was just a simple, low-key person."
When his running days were done, Yifter changed his focus to coaching soccer. Several of his former players attended his funeral.
Yifter's body will be returned to Ethiopia this week.
