Beer and wine jars unearthed in Egypt
Cache found within 5,000-year-old ritual chamber

CAIRO, Egypt - Archaeologists uncovered a 5,000-year-old chamber believed to have been used for the burial rituals of Egypt's first major pharaoh — and found a cache of 200 rough ceramic beer and wine jars, Egyptian authorities said Thursday.
The mortuary enclosure of King Hur-Aha, the founder of Egypt's First Dynasty, also included a cultic chapel where the floor and benches are stained with organic material — probably the remains of offerings made during rituals, Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities said.
"It is a very important discovery because it would provide us with new information about the First Dynasty," Zahi Hawass, head of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, told The Associated Press.
The mud-brick mortuary enclosure was discovered by a joint American excavation from Yale University, the Pennsylvania University Museum and New York University at Shunet El-Zebib, part of the pharaonic holy city of Abydos, where many of Egypt's earlier pharaohs are buried, 240 miles (400 kilometers) south of Cairo.
The enclosure in believed to be where the body of King Hur-Aha was kept during burial rituals. His tomb is nearby in Abydos, though it's not known whether he was buried there.
The enclosure also included three rectangular tombs with wooden ceilings covered with reed matting — one with a well-preserved skeleton of a woman and another tomb with remains of human bones. Hawass said experts were trying to identify the remains. The enclosure also had a chamber of pots with hieroglyphs indicating they were made during the reign of Hur-Aha.
Hur-Aha, who ruled around 3100 B.C. — about 500 years before the pyramids were built — is considered the first pharaoh of the First Dynasty, the first royal family to control both Upper and Lower Egypt in a unified kingdom. But little is known of the era.
Later Egyptian dynasties came to identify Abydos as the burial site of the god Osiris.The beer and wine jars were found in excavations along the walls of the mortuary enclosure of King Khasekhemwy, a Second Dynasty pharoah who ruled around 2700 B.C.

PARENTs & KIDS - this week: PUPPIES

Thinking about getting a pet?

If you're thinking about getting a pet and you've looked at the different options, you may be considering getting the second most popular pet after a cat - a dog.

Or in this case, a puppy!
There are lots of different breeds to choose, so it's not a decision to be rushed. Don't get a dog that's unsuitable for you.

Different breeds of dog have different behaviours and qualities. Terriers have lots of energy and never seem to get tired.
Labradors make great family pets but do tend to get fat - so you have to be very careful about their diet and make sure that they get enough exercise. Some giant dogs can develop heart problems and not live as long as smaller breeds.
Mixed breeds tend to be healthy and good tempered, and of course each and every one is unique.

Do give some thought to the amount of time you spend training your puppy - a good dog should have nice manners. You must train a puppy not to jump up. It might be cute when they're tiny, but when they're huge, it's no fun! If your puppy does jump up, just hold out your hand and firmly say "no". If it continues to jump, just stop playing and walk away quietly.

You must also train your puppy not to chew.
To do this, get a rag, soak it in water, freeze it and then give it to your puppy. The cold will stop the hurt - because puppies get teething problems just like human babies do!
Do think about the amount of time you need to spend looking after your puppy or dog. They need to have their teeth cleaned regularly.
Dogs get lots of parasites. Keep an eye out for ticks, ... ...also flea poo at the base of their tail. And beware of these foul things - worms. You need to make sure that your puppy is wormed regularly. If it shuffles along on its bottom, it's a sure sign that it has them!

Never let your puppy lick your face. Why?

Because puppies love to lick each other's bottoms!
So if you decide that a puppy is to be the pet for you, here's a tip for when you get it home. Give it a nice warm place to sleep at night. And if you get an old jumper or t-shirt that smells of you, and put inside a hot water bottle and an alarm clock. The warmth will remind the puppy of its mother and the ticking of the clock of its mother's heartbeat.
