History of Egypt...


In most history books, the period following the New Kingdom is the 3rd Intermediate Period (1070 - 712 or 1070 - 525), composed of the dynasties 21 through 24 or 26. This period, followed by the Late Period (712 - 332 or 525 - 332), is often described as a period of decline and chaos.

It is true that during most of the so-called 3rd Intermediate Period, there was more than one centre of power in Egypt: in Tanis, in the Nile Delta, there were the kings from the 21st and 22nd Dynasty, who nominally ruled the entire country, but who had to share their power with the Theban high-priests, or with some other, local dynasties, such as the 23rd and the 24th. This division of power, however, did not lead to civil wars or a decline in wealth.

To the contrary, the period so often called "3rd Intermediate Period" was a period of relative peace and stability. The 21st Dynasty royal tombs, unearthed in Tanis, are among the richest finds in the history of Egyptian archaeology. That the power did not only reside with the king and his entourage, was the result of the increasing wealth of private persons, such as the Theban high-priests. This too is echoed by the immense private tombs found on the Theban West Bank, dated to this period. I have therefore chosen not to use the name "3rd Intermediate Period" and have the Late Dynastic Period immediately follow the New Kingdom. What is called the "Late Period" in most history books, has also become part of this "Late Dynastic Period". Read more...

German-Egyptian Year of Science and Technology

Cairo: The year 2007 will be dedicated to scientific discourse and co-operation between Germany and Egypt.
On Jan.8 at 10:30 am Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, Professor Dr Hany Helal, and Bernd Erbel, German Ambassador to Egypt, will hold a joint press conference at the ministry, where information will be given on the upcoming events and their conceptual background.
On Jan. 15, a meeting of Egyptian and German scientists at Cairo University will officially kick off the Egyptian-German Year of Science and Technology, a starting signal for a number of scientific events set for the course of the year.
The year 2007 was declared “German-Egyptian Year of Science and Technology”after a bilateral agreement between the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
An idea first proposed by the Egyptian side and warmly received by the German ministry, the “Science Year”, is considered an excellent platform to underline the priority of science and research, to intensify the co-operation between Egypt and Germany, and to support and encourage scientific exchange between the two countries. Over the course of the year, numerous projects and events will take place in both countries, mainly focusing on six fields of research: Material Sciences, Water, Social Sciences / Humanities, Renewable Energies, Medical Sciences, and Biotechnology. In addition to scientific meetings and conferences, public exhibitions and other events for the general public are planned. Special emphasis will be given to the support and training of young academics, to co-operation between science and industry, and to the European Union’s research support programs.

Egypt to offer licences

Two international call licences will be offered by Egypt's National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority by the end of February, reported the Daily Star, Egypt. The release of the licences has been delayed by a year as the NTRA has sought favourable market conditions and has allowed Telecom Egypt, the sole current provider, more time to prepare for a loss of revenue. In 2005, 27% of the firm's revenue came from overseas calls.

Parents & Kids...

A Waste Not Picture Frame

Have an old puzzle that is missing some pieces? How about some photographs that need framing? If you said yes, then you and the kids have a fun project ahead of you! These easy and personalized frames make wonderful gifts for relatives.

What You Need:

  • photograph for framing
  • piece of cardboard a little larger than your photo
  • 4 ice cream or craft sticks
  • 15 puzzle pieces (will need more or less depending on puzzle piece size)
  • tempera paint in colors of your choice
  • various buttons and doodads for decoration
  • Craft glue
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • newspaper

How To Make It:

  1. Using craft glue, adhere the photograph to the piece of cardboard. Use craft glue to attach the ice cream sticks around the photograph as shown in figure 1. Trim cardboard so that it is just larger than the photograph. Set aside to dry.

  2. Lay newspaper down on table and place puzzle pieces face up. Have the children paint the puzzle pieces in the colors of your choice. You may need 2-3 coats for some depending on the color of paint and the darkness of the pattern on the puzzle pieces.

  3. When the puzzle pieces are dry and are the color you want, use hot glue to adhere them to the ice cream sticks. Alternate colored puzzle pieces as desired, work your way around the frame, be sure that pieces overlap and do not leave any gaps between pieces.

  4. After all pieces are glued in place, use hot glue to adhere small buttons and doodads of your choice around frame.

  5. For a simple hanger, hot glue a piece of sturdy string or yarn across the back of the cardboard. See figure 2.

Easy Three Cheese Baked Ziti

Preparation Time: 30 minutes or less
Cooking Time: 30 minutes - 1 hour
Serves: 3


  • 1 pound (or box) of dry ziti pasta
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 2 (26 ounce) jars of spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 lb of sliced provologne cheese
  • 8 oz of sour cream
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Oregano, basil, black pepper

Optional: Sugar


  1. First, chop up your onion and brown it with the beef in a pan over medium/medium high heat. Add oil if necessary.
  2. In the meantime, start boiling some water in a pot for the ziti. Throw in some salt and oil.
  3. Once the beef and onion are browned, drain it and reduce heat to low. You can leave as much as you like in if you want to keep some flavor going. Toss in the sauce, pepper, oregano, basil, and sugar (if the sauces you get out of a can or jar is too salty for your taste!).It's better to use regular Ragu sauce with nothing in.
  4. Let that simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes.
  5. Once your pasta is done, drain the water and put half of it in a pan.
  6. Next, spread out the sour cream.
  7. Then throw on the provologne.
  8. Then half the sauce.
  9. Then finish it off by putting on the rest of the pasta, the rest of the sauce, the mozzarella, and the parmesan, in that order. Put as much cheese on top as you like.
  10. Put the pan in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
