Mini-B Shallow Water Scuba system
is a unique diving package that puts the simplicity
back into scuba diving. It is designed for the person

the gap between snorkeling and scuba diving. Snuba
divers breathe underwater by means of a 20 foot
air line which is connected to a standard scuba
tank. The tank is mounted on a raft on the surface
that follows your every movement. The airline allows
you to tour underwater near the bottom, at mid-water
or on the surface depending on your level of comfort.

is the helmet and a swim suit. A constant supply
of fresh air is pumped from the boat above you and
the excess bubbles flow freely out of the bottom
of the helmet. Your head stays dry, you can reach

first full-frontal portrait of an Egyptian pharaoh
has been discovered by archaeologists. It is
thought to be more than 3500 years old, dating
from 1400 BC and most likely depicts the pharaoh
Tuthmosis III or his mother Hatshepsut. The

portrait is painted onto a wooden board measuring
50 by 30 centimetres and is unique. Other Egyptian
paintings and drawings only ever show people
in profile, which the artists may have thought
would help identify their subjects more easily.

The goddess, Eastre, was worshipped through her
earthly symbol, the rabbit.

of Easter. The exchange of eggs in the springtime
