NASA Recognizes the Efforts of Scientist Farouk El-Baz By Naming An Asteroid After him

Published

on

NASA has named a newly discovered asteroid after the Egyptian scientist, Farouk El-Baz in recognition to his remarkable scientific contributions and efforts with NASA.

In regards to this huge accomplishment, the Minister of State for Migration and Egyptians Abroad Affairs Nabila Makram took it to the ministry’s official Facebook page to congratulate Dr El-Baz for this huge acknowledgement.

 

This acknowledgement comes in light of all the efforts and contributions made by El-Baz during his role with NASA, starting with the Apollo project to exploring the surface of the moon in the mid-sixties of the last Apollo Sios American – Russian Joint Trip.

This marks the very first time for an Egyptian to get an asteroid named after him.

Published

Amr Waked told fans on Twitter that he will be making an appearance in the much-anticipated sequel to 2017’s smash-hit, Wonder Woman. 

“Wait for my appearance in the superhero film 1984 (Part II), directed by Patty Jenkins, I hope you enjoy the movie” Waked announced.

This has of course opened a lot of discussions regarding the nature of his role, especially that the star hasn’t yet specified the role he would be playing and so far he hasn’t been credited among the cast on the IMDb page of the Wonder Woman’s cast.

So will he be playing a secondary role? A main one? Or maybe in the role of a villain?? Who knows! Maybe even he’ll get to kiss yet another Hollywood star!

Amr Diab on a Global Display Through Spotify’s Billboard in Times Square

Published

Spotify continues to show its commitment to the Middle East and North Africa region, this time by proudly projecting an image of Egyptian singer and MENA superstar Amr Diab on a Spotify billboard today, stealing the spotlight in New York City’s Times Square, one of the most iconic neighborhoods and sights in the Big Apple.

In a bid to reach the millions of lovers of Arab music living outside the MENA region, Spotify launched last year with a globally accessible Arab hub as part of their Global Cultures initiative, which is instrumental in connecting the music and culture of the Middle East and North Africa, with listeners everywhere. With Spotify’s global and local editorial team’s collaboration, Diab’s songs were included on various international and regional playlists, where his music continues to spread around the globe.

Diab’s appearance on a Times Square billboard demonstrates Spotify’s dedication to putting MENA talents on the world stage and marks the first time an artist, singing in Arabic, has been featured on this international landmark.

Commenting on the brand’s commitment to supporting regional talent and Arab music, Claudius Boller, Managing Director, Spotify Middle East and Africa, said, “Bringing the world to artists and artists to the world is a fundamental part of what Spotify is about. Experiencing Amr Diab’s devotion to Arabic music for nearly four decades straight and witnessing his fanbase expand across the world is beyond incredible. Today we are celebrating Diab’s legacy and we are proud to see him shine so brightly – literally – on the global stage.”

Whilst Diab’s MENA based fans have proudly followed his decades-long career, he is no stranger to the United States. The legendary artist has been busy projecting his steamy Mediterranean grooves across the world and has a massive listening base in the USA, which became the number one country streaming his music on Spotify, followed by Sweden and Germany.


“Music is a language that speaks emotions and not only words. I am blessed to have touched people around the world with my music,” Amr Diab tells Spotify. “Spotify has allowed so many artists to connect with fans beyond borders and I am glad for that.”

Diab’s global appeal can also be witnessed in Spotify’s latest marketing campaign, which features a series of fun videos set in different places around the world where non-Arabs are attempting to sing along to the icon’s latest and greatest tunes.

“What Amr Diab was doing, from the beginning, really, was look to the Mediterranean for his sound,” explains Saeed Saeed, a prominent music and culture commentator. “He took Arabic pop music into a new direction, so for that he’s deeply important,” Saeed says.

A 2013 tour celebrating Diab’s glorious career saw him playing sold-out concerts as far off as Australia, Romania, and Greece. He was even recognized by Guinness World Records in 2016 for the record-breaking number of trophies he has taken home in the annual World Music Awards.
