Deadly Trending Challenge on TikTok

Published

Skull Breaker Challenge

We have seen several stupid trends throughout the years, but what we have for you today is by far the stupidest and considered one of the most dangerous trends ever! TikTok as a media platform and is being used more and more nowadays and is one of the top trending apps on PlayStore.

The trending challenge, known as the “Skull Breaker Challenge”, is being imitated by thousands of teenagers playing around and simply thinking of it as yet another game and trend. But little did you know that people are getting severely injured due to this silly challenge.

It feels as if it’s the Kiki Challenge all over again! If you guys remember back when the Kiki challenge was top trending, many people were injured pretty badly and some even were found dead, all because of something this ridiculous! Bags were stolen, and even cars since the Kiki Challenge was about people getting out of their car.

 

People who are willingly following such a trend are in serious danger, which is why parents as well as the authorities are warning people to stray away from such nonsense that can actually get people killed.

A 12-year-old boy from Alabama suffered a broken wrist. His mother stated that he didn’t know what he was getting himself into. The challenge basically requires three people where one person is asked to jump while the other two kick their legs out, causing the person to fall backwards hence the term “Skull Breaker”. This is the purpose behind the challenge, to make the person jumping fall back on his head.

The challenge is often done to people who have no idea what’s going on with them. For instance, another 16-year-old girl in Florida agreed to participate in the challenge thinking that the other two students were working on a school video. She was severely injured and had internal bleeding. Another 10-year-old boy was left unconscious and was immediately taken to the hospital so that the medics could help wake him up and fix what has been broken.

The result of such a prank is terrifying and quite dangerous because one wrong hit in the head, and you could be left brain dead. Which is why the challenge and the process of it is considered by parents and authorities as bullying and harassment. With that said, parents and schools are urged to discuss the importance and dangers of such things with their children.

This is more than just a silly old trend, this prank is actually putting people in danger and is worrying parents to the core because who knows, maybe today’s the day their child will be a victim of such a prank.

We need to stress on how you should think wisely before imitating anything you see on the internet, we have brains to help us make such decisions rather than play the role of a copycat. Thankfully, this challenge hasn’t really made its way to Egypt, which is why we urge our readers as well as parents to raise awareness on such a contradicting topic.

What do you think? Is this just our typical social media trend that we all enjoy doing or is this truly a matter of life or death?

Cairo University Making History

Published

Cairo University

In light of the Coronavirus outbreak, many scientists, researchers, and doctors have struggled to contain let alone combat the pandemic. Which is why Cairo University took things to a whole new level by initiating 5 research units.

The research unit is composed of around 25 scientists, professors, and researchers who will commence working on developing medical treatment for the Coronavirus .Associate Professor of Biophysics, Abo Elfiky, is part of this new found research team and has already published two research articles in various international journals to show people the possible treatments for COVID-19.

The research project that the following people are about to embark on is surely to be effective and to make us very proud to be a part of this. We have found out from this initiative that the virus enters the human body. The spikes that are latched onto the virus are in charge of sticking to the normal body cells we have in our body.

Cairo University needs  to crack the code by trying to understand the dynamics of the spike protein as well as the receptors that are on our cells, only then will they be capable of finding a means to stop the virus from entering the cells in the first place.

On a side note, the team is also looking for a way to target and fight the virus before making its way into our cells. They’re also finding a way to prevent the nucleus from duplicating the virus’s DNA thus reproducing throughout the victim’s entire body.

The general idea of finding a cure for a virus is to work with what is known to have worked with other diseases. In this case, they have tested drugs that have treated Malaria, HIV, and Ebola. Doctor Elfiky is working on re-purposing the medication used for Hepatitis C.

With that said, this doesn’t mean that everyone should empty out their pharmacies from Hepatitis C medication, we don’t need another disaster. Trump had previously caused a conflict where he had misleadingly tweeted that the Malaria medication is a game changer in the history of medicine. This had caused a shortage for the medication, leaving people who are in deep need of it quite sick.

We’re glad progress is being made and that Egypt is partaking in changing events as well as devoting their time and efforts to help save not just their citizens, but the world as a whole.

The Brighter Side of the Coronavirus

Published

Coronavirus

Ever since we have detected the beginning of the Coronavirus, people have gone rabid with worry and fear. Our community and citizens of the world were in fear for their health and even lives. We have lost many loved ones throughout this pandemic crisis, which is why people are scared for their lives.

Many countries around the globe are forced to stay at home for their own safety as well as the safety of others. The government has taken it into their liberty to use this free time where the streets are empty to fully and thoroughly sterilize the streets in hopes of getting rid of the Coronavirus outbreak.

So far, people keep thinking that the pandemic is only bringing negativity and taking away the lives of so many people, but what if you saw things from a different perspective? Have you ever wondered that there actually is a positive side to this virus? That maybe this is God’s way of reminding us of the things we have always neglected and keeping the environment safe?

Ever since the Coronavirus commenced, less people were roaming the streets. This lead to fewer cars in the streets which lead to less pollution. Do you notice the chain that is going on? Mankind has always been destructive to mother nature. The population is increasing on a global scale which means more pollution, more sickness, more trouble.
Just two weeks ago, Egypt has experienced a heavy three day sand, thunder, and rainstorm, and has taken a big toll on people. Some lives were lost, whether animal or human, and the streets were left completely flooded, leaving people stuck at home.

A similar situation had occurred a few days ago in Dubai where they had witnessed severe storms and thunder. Haven’t you guys considered that this is God’s way of trying to clean and rid the world of all diseases and pollution and to even help calm down the virus? If these storms hadn’t occurred, people would still have gone out of their houses which probably would have provoked the virus to spread even more.

Not just that, but ever since quarantine has commenced, pollution has decreased, animals as well as endangered species are no longer endangered. See what’s happening? The human race has become very destructive to the land they live on as well as their inhabitants, whether they be human or animal.

Take this time to truly reconsider and think of all the things that went wrong; why they went wrong because we are the reason and we are the cause. We are the reason the virus is spreading because we’re too selfish to stay home for a few days to ensure the lives of others. We are the reason why animals and rare species are getting endangered. We are the main reason and source of land and air pollution.

Look at the world today, everything is clean, animals are healthier and happier, the world is a better place without humans interfering. So please, take the time to rethink everything that is going on and plan for a better and cleaner future. The virus was just a reminder to us, to awaken us for all the wrong doings and destructiveness that we have created upon each other. We’ve taken many things for granted, the lives of our loved ones and even our parents. Use the time to rethink.

Presidents

In light of all these conflicts that have been rising ever since we have discovered the Coronavirus, our President Abdel Fattah el Sisi had phoned Xi Jinping, the Chinese president in order to discuss all the ways they could assist each other to end the Coronavirus outbreak.

President Sisi had praised and honored China for all its outstanding methods in hopes of trying to cope as well as contain the virus amidst their country. Which is why he had expressed great interest in wanting to partner up with them and cooperate together using both China and Egypt’s health institutions.

On a positive note, Xi Jinping had also expressed great interest in all the methods Egypt has been using so far as to try to contain the virus as much as possible, many countries have shown gratitude and support for our way of dealing with the Coronavirus.

China is in deep need of help during this crisis because their population is double the Egyptian population which makes it even harder to maintain as well as contain. Hence, China is fully ready to help assist Egypt in fighting this as long as they get help and cooperation in return.

On President Sisi’s official Twitter account,he had said that he is closely following up the state’s efforts to combat the spread of the virus, saying “As I pledged yesterday, we are precisely continuing our procedures to combat this pandemic in order to preserve the health and the life of every Egyptian citizen.”

“I call upon all [Egyptians] to fully abide by these measures to keep Egypt in peace and security… I pray to Allah Almighty to grant us success in what we do to serve our dear country, Egypt,” Sisi said.

President Sisi is still stressing on the  crucial importance of us having to remain at home to break the chain once and for all. So far, the number of infected people has risen to 327 with a death toll of 14.

We hope that both countries merging tactics and forces to “break the chain” will help end this outbreak once and for all without any more people having to get hurt.
