Scientists Bring Back The Voice of 3,000-year-old Egyptian Mummy

Published

If the dead could talk, they would have a lot to say right? Well, for the mummy Nesyamun, it only had a few sounds to make! Thanks to scientists and technology, they were able to reproduce the voice of an ancient Egyptian priest and here is how it sounded…

 

An international and interdisciplinary team reproduced the voice of an ancient Egyptian priest by creating a 3D-printed replica of the mummified vocal tract.

The team led by David Howard, a professor of electronic engineering at Royal Holloway, were able to use a computed tomography (CT) scanning technology that measured the dimensions of the vocal tract of the mummy Nesyamun.

“He certainly can’t speak at the moment,” Howard told the New York Times.

“But I think it’s perfectly plausible to suggest that one day it will be possible to produce words that are as close as we can make them to what he would have sounded like.” He added.

Egypt is Going Places: Electric Buses to be Produced

Published

Electric Buses

Everyone who lives in Egypt tends to find difficulty moving around the Egyptian boarders. Yes us Egyptian’s are familiar with using cabs , public transportation, and even the metro, but we all know how uncomfortable and unhygienic that is. Which is why Egypt is finally planning to produce 2,000 electric buses! Yay us!

Egyptian Minister of Military Production, Mohamed El Assar, stated in a meeting yesterday morning that Egypt is aiming to produce around 2,00 electrical buses throughout the upcoming 4 years. He also claims that there is a possibility that number would increase up to 5,000 by the end of 2024!

This new campaign for change is said to commence on November 2021, this upcoming year, and people are thriller to see the new changes taking initiative. If you think of it this way, this change needs to occur because with all the   people riding public transportation in Egypt, many diseases and sicknesses are easily exchanged, Which is why it’s of crucial importance that they produce electric buses, especially in a time of Coronavirus which means we need to stay cautious and safe.

The first stage of the campaign consists of operating in major cities such as Cairo, Alexandra, and Sharm el Sheikh. Then they will begin producing in smaller areas. It is said that a memorandum of understanding will be signed by Foton, the American company said to produce the buses in Egypt.

Another important part of the news is that Egypt has also signed a contract with Geely, Chinese car makers, to also produce electric vehicles. Having two companies work on this will definitely get things done faster. It is under direct orders from our President Abd el Fattah el Sisi that they spread the industry f electronic vehicles throughout Egypt as a whole.

The best part of this entire procedure is that not only are these electronic vehicles aren’t that expensive, but it is also environmental friendly, which is a crucial point of this entire new campaign.

We believe that it’s great that Egypt is finally taking initiative and is finally capable of mustering up strength and competing with other countries. Also, for all eco friendly users, I’m sure this is great news for you! Egypt is an extremely populated country and the hygiene in public transportation is despicable.

Egypt truly is going places and we can’t wait to witness all these changes. How do you see this new campaign as positively beneficial? Are there other reasons we need electronic vehicles for rather than simply hygiene and catching up with other countries?
