New Challenge Goes Viral to Support Those Who Can’t Afford to Stay at Home

Published

on

A new hashtag of a challenge is going viral among celebrities and football players, one that aims at helping out the families in need who can’t afford to leave their jobs and stay at home.

Since we’re all encouraged to stay at home as a precautionary measure to end the virus and while most of us can afford to stay at home, others simply can’t provide for their families financially.

That’s where celebrities and football players started the hashtag #تحدى_الخير and are challenging one another to do some good by taking care of the expenses of 60 families for the next 3 months!

A great initiative, one that made us regain our faith in humanity. The challenge that only started last night has already saw the participation of so many, including Ahmed El Saka, Mona Zaki, Hannah El Zahed, Ahmed El Saadany, Chico, Ahmed Fahmy, Ahmed Dawood, Trezeguet, Salma Abu Deif and way more.

‘Memory of the City’ is the newest initiative launched by the Egypt’s Ministry of Culture with the aim of documenting the architectural identity of ancient areas in Egypt.

Minister Inas Abdel Dayem said that Egypt’s architectural heritage represent the history of civilizations and the formation of urban life and its development.

Abdel Dayem further pointed out that the “Memory of the City” Initiative is a humanitarian and historical message with the aim of preserving the nation’s unique features.

Also worth mentioning is that the “Memory of the City” initiative includes launching a series of books that highlights areas with a great historical value, in addition to setting boundaries and foundations to preserve this rich history.

The series tells multiple stories of buildings, their residents, the community and environment. All of this comes as part of the Ministry’s efforts in preserving the identity of these Egyptian areas and shed the light on their significant part of the Egyptian cultural heritage.

New Swine Flu With Pandemic Potential Found in China

Published

By

A new type of swine flu has been discovered by Chinese researchers with the possibility of infecting humans and causing yet another pandemic! The study was released on Monday.

Scientists warn about the virus but for the time-being, they say that it doesn’t impose an immediate global threat.

The disease, knows as the G4 virus, is genetically descended from the H1N1 swine flu that caused a pandemic in 2009. G4 nowshows “all the essential hallmarks of a candidate pandemic virus,” said the study, published in the scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

We know how scary this sounds but Dr. Angela Rasmussen, a virologist at Columbia University’s public health school, asked the public not to “freak out.”

“Our understanding of what is a potential pandemic influenza strain is limited,” she posted on Twitter. “Sure, this virus meets a lot of the basic criteria but it’s not for sure going to cause a hypothetical 2020 flu pandemic, or even be a dominant strain in humans.”

No evidence has shown yet that G4 could be transmitted from one person to another, perhaps the most promising sign so far, said Carl Bergstrom, a professor of biology at the University of Washington.

“This is not a *new* new virus; it’s been very common in pigs since 2016,” he tweeted. “There’s no evidence that G4 is circulating in humans, despite five years of extensive exposure. That’s the key context to keep in mind.”

However, researchers are warning the public that the virus is rising among large populations and could and could “pose a serious threat to human health” if not carefully monitored.
Transmission of the virus from pig to human could “lead to severe infection and even death,” said the study.
So should you be worried? For the time-being no but no one knows what this could mean for us in the future.
