Archaeology

At school, we were always used to being taught staple subjects whether it be Math, History, English, or Social Studies. Our minds were never capable of expanding due to the stable subjects we were given.

As younger kids back in the days, many things drove our imagination to wander, which is why we were always hoping for more. What if we were taught Astrology or maybe even Mythology? What would our lives be like today, but most importantly, how would our minds be like?

Breaking news ,that is the best we have heard so far, is that the Egyptology Research Organization Egypt Exploration Society has gracefully decided to offer free archaeological lectures online! Can you believe it? Archaeology is a very expensive subject to learn as it is greatly enriched with so much knowledge, which is why this is a big deal!

The Egypt Exploration Society (EES) is known to be UK’s biggest funding organization for Research, Training, and Fieldwork for those who are interested in studying Egyptology. Free online lectures will be handled by expert Egyptologists who have been working in the field for decades as well as have so much knowledge to let us in on.

The EES dates back to 1882 and since then has explored a range of 150 sites amidst the Nile Valley. Not just that, but they’ve also published more than 350 volumes of the research and knowledge they have gathered!

Sisi: Egypt Will Handle Quarantine Cost for Egyptians Stranded Abroad

President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has announced that Egypt will be taking care of the quarantine expenses for Egyptian expats wishing to return home but can’t afford the stay on their own.

El Sisi signed a declaration that the national fund Tahya Misr will take the responsibility of paying the expenses of quarantine for Egyptians wishing to return home, this follows Egypt’s Civil Aviation Ministry decision of quarantining Egyptian expats for two weeks in a hotel upon their arrival to Egypt.

Egyptian Cabinet spokesman Nader Saad said on Tuesday that citizens abroad won’t be allowed to fly to Egypt unless they sign a quarantine commitment letter, meaning that it is compulsory.

The decision which is indeed needed faced refusal from several travelers because of the high expenses, especially that they will have to stay at a hotel.

A number of Egyptians who arrived from Kuwait and Britain refused to be quarantined at their own expenses, which led to Sisi’s fair decision of handling the cost.

We hope that with such a fair amendment to the rule, Egyptians stranded abroad can fly back home safely and abide to the newest mandatory rule.

New 69 coronavirus cases have been announced yesterday by the ministry, which is why we need to follow stricter rules to contain the virus while still maintaining the safety of Egyptian nationals stranded abroad.

To all the travelers, stay patient and to everyone here, stay safe and stay home.

Van Gogh’s Painting Stolen from Museum in Netherlands

Van Gogh

Ever since the Coronavirus outbreak has commenced, matters had gotten a little better around the world, especially when governments had initiated curfews and quarantines. It was claimed that the number of stolen items, rapes, harassments, and much more have decreaed over the last couple of days.

This has been a result of the governments initiating strict rules as well as 24 hour supervision. Also, since many places people can easily steal from have been closed either to protect themselves from the pandemic or even to follow the curfew that has been instated, has truly helped keep the world a better safer place for the time being.

On the other hand, all the way in Netherlands, a disasters incident had occurred at Singer Laren Museum. Believe it or not, a painting worth five million sterlings that has been created by your favorite artist, Van Gogh, has been stolen due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The painting that had been stolen was the Personage Garden at Neunen in Spring. What had happened was that the thieves had broken into the front glass door by smashing through at around 3:15am.

You would think that it is of great opportunity to steal something so expensive and valuable at the current time since everyone and everything has shut down in light of COVID-19, but seems like the thieves had a personal vendetta since no other art was stolen but that one in particular.

The museum’s alarm had been triggered of course due to the high tech security of the place, but by the time the police had been called in to the museum, the burglars had fled from the crime scene leaving no trace behind.

An important press conference was held on Youtube that included Jan Rudolph De Lorm, the director of the museum as well as other important officials to discuss the incident that occurred. Jan had expressed deep anger and claimed that he is’ extremely pissed off by the loss of the painting.

Not only did the painting symbolize the day that Van Gogh was born 167 years ago, but it was also the only unique artifact that the museum preserved that belongs to the beloved artist. This truly is shocking to believe that people had the nerve to take advantage of the museum’s situation and steal a painting worth so much money.
