Pregnancy and childbirth
The two great imperatives in the ancient world were to get married and to have children.
history of Egypt
Mother and Child in Ancient Egypt

There were two reasons why having a family was considered so necessary. With no medicare, senior residences, or pension plan, people throughout the ancient world relied on their adult children to look after them in old age. Perhaps the Ancient Egyptian euphemism for an eldest son---the staff of old age---says it all. While most people died of injury or sickness long before they had a chance to grow old, many did live long enough to have to rely on others to care for them. Without at least one son to assist them the aged were in serious trouble. The second reason was the need in all pre-industrial societies for an increase in population. More people meant more workers. More workers meant greater wealth and a better chance of preventing conquest by aggressive neighbors.

Both of these factors applied to Ancient Egypt as much as they did to all of the other ancient societies. In addition, however, Ancient Egyptians loved children. They would have wanted a family even if there were no other compelling reasons. Many family portraits attest to the love and devotion that bound together the members of a family. There was enormous social pressure to get pregnant, and the risks associated with childbirth must have been very frightening for many, but most women really did want to be mothers.

The John D. Gerhart Field Station

“We have worked with countless individuals to honor AUC’s late and widely respected president, John D. Gerhart,” said President David Arnold at the launch of the new field center. “We honor him by bringing his values of environmentalism and high-quality education to this vital region of Egypt.”
The John D. Gerhart Field Station, made possible through the generous support of Samih Sawiris, chief executive officer and chairman of Orascom Hotels and Development, will serve as a place of learning and study for undergraduate and graduate students, while also catering to the educational needs and interests of members of the local El Gouna community.

“I am confident that through this field station, we can give local residents the world class resources they need to succeed in their professional lives and to understand and protect the environment around them,” said Arnold.

To be administered by the newly renamed School of Continuing Education, the facility will offer courses intended to further adult education across the areas of business studies, English, foreign languages and computer studies. With the collaboration of the El Gouna International School located across the street from the field station, many of these classes will be available in the evening.

Students interested in learning more about environmental studies will find a unique resource in the field station. With its close proximity to the Red Sea, stellar faculty and generous offering of classes and research across many environmental studies fields, students will have an ideal place to actively participate in hands-on learning.

Egypt Air launches online booking, evens local and
foreign pricing
Pricing official: domestic prices to fall by 20 percent with Express launch in June.
Egypt Air announced Thursday the official launch of its online portal for booking travel and tracking cargo shipments.

Due to service initiation, Egyptian and foreigner ticket pricing for domestic destinations has been unified resulting in a 10 percent average increase for Egyptians and 30 percent average decrease for foreigners, an Egypt Air pricing official told The Daily Star Egypt.

Wael El Demerdash, pricing manager at Egypt Air, said the company plans to maintain its current domestic pricing scheme until the launch of Express, its low-budget domestic route subsidiary, next June. Prices are then expected to fall by 20 percent on average, he said.

The launch of the website follows the introduction of e-ticketing services on all domestic and some international routes last December. Introduction of new services is part of the company's modernization campaign launched in 2002 to enable it to compete as the government continues to liberalize the sector.

My planet Earth
The beauty of this project is that no two will ever be alike! Every child’s creation will be completely unique. You can use this delicate but pretty recycled-crayon craft to teach children that the earth is also delicate and we need to look after it.
parents & kids
Every child’s creation will be completely unique
What you need: Crayons in blue and green, brown and white are optional, scissors, wax paper, paper towel, iron, string
What you do:
Lay a piece of wax paper out flat on the work surface. Use a drinking cup or other stencil to draw a circle on the wax paper. Parents should shave the crayons using the blade on a pair of scissors or the edge of a knife. Have your child place the different colored crayon shavings within the circle however they like. Blue for water, green and brown for land, white for cloud formations. Cut a piece of string about twelve-inches long. Double the string over and place the open ends together, lay them onto the crayon shavings. When the shavings melt in the following steps, the string will be melded into the cooled crayon to form your hanger. Place another piece of wax paper on top of the crayon shavings being careful not to disturb the shavings. Place a piece of paper towel on top of the wax paper. With iron on low setting, a grown up can apply heat to melt the crayon shavings. Allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, use scissors to trim the creation into a circle, trimming off any excess if necessary. Be very careful not to cut your string! Carefully peel off one side of the wax paper, then the other. Hang in a window.
