"Described the festival as a breeding ground for sexual immorality and homosexuality will Ross reports Four days of fun close to the banks of the river Nile. That's what this nige nige festival is all about. Just a few days ago, Uganda's parliament voted to ban the event MP said it would promote immorality, but it seems the last minute effort to stop the fun helped promote the event as the organizers said ticket sales increased. It's unlikely that without the MP's help, Niagara would have got a mention in the Irish times, for example. Some festival goers said they hadn't heard of the festival until it popped up on a news feed on their mobile phones And scientists at the U.S. space agency NASA say they're perseverance rover is close to completing its first set of objectives on Mars. The robot has collected a diverse set of rock samples that it will soon deposit on the surface. These will then be brought to earth on future missions. It's 17 months since the vehicle, nicknamed Percy arrived in an area called the jezero crater, scientists say everything it seemed confirms it's in the perfect place to hunt for signs of ancient life. Percy the perseverance river David, thank you very much. And now let's get the sports with Andy barwell. Arsenal sit top of the Premier League table in England going into the international break. After their three nil success ever Brentford, the max saw Ethan Wen airi came off the substitute bench and make a senior debut for the Gunners and at the age of 15 years and 181 days when ary is the youngest Premier League player in history. The club legend Ian Wright says he's proud of arsenal for giving youngsters a chance. The thing with him is to get in at that age, you'd think that, oh, is that kind of some kind of like stunt what they're trying to do? Those people, Mikhail edu perma Sakura, not putting him in for any joke. That team has got no fat. They're not going to bring people in just for the sake of it. They think very high of him. He's playing for the under 18s when he was 14. He's somebody that I think very highly of. And what I think that does, it sends out a massive message of no matter how young you are, you go to that academy, you've got a chance of playing in that first team. Boss Frank Lampard was happy with the result. I see his Everton team got their first Premier League win of the campaign, beating West Ham one nil. I think we were really pleased with the performance. It was some good football at times, some real fight at times against a really good opponent and it feels like a win that's sort of deserved because I think it's been coming. Brighton and top album have appointed the former shakhtar Donetsk and sir swallow boss Roberto de zerbi as their new manager. In Spain, Real Madrid maintained their perfect record in going back to the top of La Liga with a two one win at their city rivals Athletico, the game was marred by chance and objects aimed at Rao's Brazilian forward phoenicias junior, rail bettis at third in the table. Chelsea's defense of the women's Super League in England got off to a losing start, going for a fourth successive WSL title, Chelsea went down two one at newly promoted Liverpool. Now golf and Scotland's Robert McIntyre was the winner of the Italian open, he edged out the U.S. open champion Matt Fitzpatrick on the first playoff hole, both have finished on 14 under par and McIntyre was relieved to get just his second DP world tour success. I didn't think it was going to come again. It was something that I've just struggled the last year. I just felt like my game wasn't quite there, made a lot of changes in the last three months and in my own play today I felt this week's been absolutely brilliant and thankfully all the way in there at the end. And week two continued in the new NFL

"Hear that? That's the sound of a patient whose health data is protected from a cyberattack. And that, that's the sound of a financial system that's digitally secured from bad actors. Right now, there's an invisible war being fought on a digital battlefield that impacts what we do every day. That's why a periton, we do that can't be done to help protect the vital systems we rely on because if we don't, the alternative is unimaginable. Periton. It's July 15th, 1799. We're in the town of Rashid. 30 miles along the coast from Alexandria. Where the great river Nile hits the Mediterranean. A breeze blows off the estuary. But still, it's blisteringly hot. On the river's West Bank, a party of French army engineers are stripped to the waist. With pickaxes and shovels, they hack away at The Rock hard ground. In the background, Arab daos, bob passed, laden with goods. On the shore children gather, curious as to what these strange Europeans are up to. The engineers are part of an expeditionary force. A force headed by Napoleon Bonaparte. When the main group went south, they were diverted here. Their orders are to dig out the foundations of an old Ottoman fort. It will be rebuilt as a French stronghold. One of the men clangs is shovel into a solid piece of rock. The obstruction is called out and brushed off. It appears most unusual. A chunk of black granite polished to a Sheen. Etched into its surface is row after row of ancient texts. The men summoned their officer lieutenant Bouchard. He senses this may be of interest. Napoleon's army has been accompanied by a contingent of archeologists. He sends a runner to find one. Propped up, the slab stands four feet high and two feet wide. Its chipped round the edges, with a fissure running across it. Clearly, it was once part of something much larger. Its words are divided into three sections. Three languages. Bouchard recognizes one of them as Greek. The second will be identified as an antique demotic script. And then there is the third. Made up of those strange pictograms that adorn the oldest monuments in this part of the world. The eyes and feathers birds and snakes. On further analysis the Greek text reveals that the stone was laid as a dedication to king Ptolemy the 5th. Made by the priests of Memphis. This will date it to around 200 BC. Though it will take years to decipher fully, the slab will prove to be a translation device. The key to interpreting the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt. Unlocking the ways of a civilization over 3000 years old. It will soon be given a name. Derived

"To the BBC NewsHour on WNYC. Good afternoon. I'm Tiffany Hansen, making headlines in New York this weekend, the New York City nurse who in December 2020 became the first person. In the U.S. to receive a COVID-19 vaccine outside of clinical trials is about to receive the nation's highest civilian honor. Sarah Sandra, Lindsay, a Jamaican born nurse who works for northwell health will be among 17 new recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. President Joe Biden will present the award to Sandra Lindsay, this Thursday at a White House ceremony. I'll have more regional news headlines for you coming up next hour during all things considered right now. It's the BBC NewsHour live from London. You listening to NewsHour on the BBC World Service, I'm leased to set. And I would look at a place that Russian troops occupied in the first days of its invasion, the Harrison region in southern Ukraine. Now Moscow is moving ahead with its plans to formalize that its part of Russia. This week the Russian imposed authorities there said they're preparing a referendum. Many question whether that vote could be free or fair. But the promotion authorities have already been issuing Russian passports in her son and using the Russian ruble. So we reached a resident of Harrison. We're not identifying him to protect his identity for his safety. For his thoughts on a referendum and what life is like there, because of limited Internet access, he sent us his answers via voice messages. The referendum for living in Ukraine and becoming part of the national federation. And for me, this is not a surprise because I really heard three or four times. He did the production and installation of that particular experience as they have failed to do so using it will succeed to start such a referendum in the some people will come. This would be the people who already submitted their documents for Russian passport. They have to justify somehow the action because for identity for these people that is quite hardly a way back to restore the problem instead of telling them that they will have troubles. What concerns the life in person, it changed a little bit during the last four weeks. I think the times are now more tough than they were before. People are now forced to take action towards the Russian occupation. I mean, the people who are still working in hospitals in the schools post offices very now forced to leave this office to live their position and lose, of course, the jobs and most probably the only ways for survival, but if they want to stay most probably they will have to accept the Russian passports to apply for Russian passports and directors, the senior managers of this threatened with imprisonment in Russia for 18 years if they do not accept to cooperate with the new authorities. So more and more people are now applying for the Russian passports and the collaborator with the new administration because they are simply afraid for their lives and for the lives of their relatives. Also, the places where the Russian passports are applied for they are now more crowded than they can clearly see quite many people waiting in line for the Russian passports and in general the life is resembling the post Soviet in the beginning of the 90s more and more. It's like a time machine where you can travel now and see how it was after the collapse of the Soviet Union. And there are no rules here. There is no control. People are selling alcohol and cigarettes outside on the streets. They are trying to survive somehow and most of them find this way the easiest and only solution to get some money. Plenty car accidents because traffic lights and into working control on the roads, the Russian military and the Russian Secret Service, they are not following the rules. The cars damaged quite many of them are damaged because the car workshops and other working people who remain here more and more stressed because there is no official waiter escape or simply they have nowhere to go actually these people who remain most of them the most vulnerable people who have nowhere to go because of the disabilities. This is quite depressing. What concerns the goods I can get well the Russian humanitarian steering force and we get nothing from Ukraine. People and businessmen they are trying to guess the most essential goods in Crimea was the grains and vegetables can be bought here in Kirsten, reversion is very great and region we have plenty of the food but what concerns the other things to people have to buy Russian goods brought from Russia for very high price. Russian rebels still didn't see, but what I know for sure that the Russians are giving the financial aid like 10,000 Russian rebels and some people accept this financial aid because they simply have nothing else to do. I heard that officers which already accepted to collaborate with a new administration and then they will receive the salaries in Russian rumbles. And that's a resident of Russian occupied her son in southern Ukraine. To Egypt now, where for decades floating houseboats have dotted the banks of the river Nile and oasis of calm and the edges of the crowded capital Cairo, a cultural symbol, which has long figured in Egyptian literature and film, but if the Egyptian authorities have their way, not for much longer. Last week's residents of some 30 houseboats received eviction notices, giving them less than two weeks before their homes would be demolished. One of the residents who's just been notified of an impending eviction is the novelist at F wave, and her son Omar Hamilton joins us now from their houseboat in Cairo. Welcome to NewsHour Omar. Thank you, Lisa. Hi. All right, so what's happening on your boat tonight and others around you? Well, tonight, we've emptied out all the furniture from our place, the water and the electricity is cut, we've rented a generator to get to the night. People around, you know, we kind of think it's like the last night that we're going to be here. This has been a kind of social center for a lot of people for the ten years that we've had it. And we expect to be towed away tomorrow the next day and to my left and my right our neighbors are ripping down their own boats and tearing out the wood and the iron to try and solve them for scraps to salvage something from the situation. So no appeals were possible to the authorities? Well, we've never had an open line of communication with any relevant authority that's a big part of the problem that for four years we've been getting conflicting messages from different authorities, the ministry of agriculture of irrigation, if defense, the governor of Giza, Giza, and it's never really been clear, it's never been possible to talk to anybody. We still are unable to have a conversation with anybody about what is happening. All we've kind of been able to work out is that they want to commercialize the little strip of the riverbank that we're on. And so they've been hiking the prices. And we have understood now that they basically converted our rents from residential to commercial without telling anybody. And the whole thing seems very improvised from their side. And yeah, there's just no, there's no transparency. There's no plan. There's no public understanding what's going on. We've been talking to all the other houseboat owners for the last week and a half. Constantly trying to work out who one can talk to to even work out what's going on short of sort of knowing for certain that they're going to come and drag the boats away pretty soon. So do they have their own grand plan for that strip of land? Along the river? If they do, they haven't shared it. They are those general commercialization drive going on. I mean, in general, the state seems to need to raise money relatively urgently. And it's ethos is very short term profiteering. I would say, so if there is a plan, we don't know it. In all around other places and the Nile, there are these giant boats that are sort of restaurant cafes, discos, and we imagine they probably want to do something similar

"But if you carry it over, it eventually grows up into this thing with these like trunks, so to speak. Thick. They're thick, like succulent like really I have a lot of houseplants that are what I would call Claudia form that have a structure like either a big thick base, a swollen base, or something that even when they're dormant, is present. It's still alive. And that's how these guys are. And the other related ones that I have, they defoliate in the winter in my conditions in my past conditions. But then I withdraw water, I stop watering, but they have this structure. They're like these sculptures. They're hilarious. Yeah. It's really gorgeous when you look close. You're like, it's just amazing. I didn't expect that to be there or that stems to grow that way. Yeah, so I think that's a kind of cool indoor outdoor four season, yeah. So I was glad to see you shout that one out too. Another good indoor one. This isn't, I don't think it's on the it's not on the list this year, but I think it was nominated. It was a river Nile. Oh. It's a rhizomatic and it has like this sort of lime chartreuse color again, but on the edge, it's like a dark purplish red brown kind of color. The leaves are also even ruffled and kind of crinkly they're rough, but I just love the color of that one and it's performed really well indoors. Oh, I'm gonna have to look it up. I'll look it up on the river Nile begonia. Now look it up on the and then I'll see if I can find it in my stores here. Yeah, so speaking of great things for pots because those are kind of great container subjects. I see you guys like elephant ears. Allocations and collocations and so forth. Yes..

"Basalt. That's data that 5200 BCE, which is like 2000 years older than Stonehenge. But the oldest layers might be up to 26,000 years old. So that's going to blow everything out of the water if it can be confirmed. I don't think it's confirmed yet, but the ground has conventional ideas. The ground penetrating right out you're talking about, I remember the last time we covered this, I found a chamber. That's right. 25 meters below the pyramid, some kind of artificial cave of sorts. So that's really intriguing. I do have the work continues there. And of course, you've got I won't go into this, but you've got the challenging of the conventional dating of the Sphinx from the erosion patterns first spotted by Robert shock. They've even seen the same erosion patents on the Great Pyramid cases, which is calling into question the age of the pyramids there. So the bottom line is we don't know our true past. But if it got it points out, the ancient traditions seem to have retained the memories of it. He says ancient traditions from around the world tell a very consistent story of a lost world that was destroyed, and of how a mysterious company of gods traveled the lengths of the known world in the aftermath of a global cataclysm to reboot civilization to restart it. And what vada tries to do is essentially retrace their steps to follow them around the world and understand what they were trying to do. So one of the first place he looks is the famous temple of edfu. This is on the western bank of the river Nile in Egypt. And you've got those inscriptions on the wall. It's like the largest body of epigraphical texts that have survived. 3000 pages of text in 15 volumes. And I don't know why. I think because maybe it's indecipherable, but most of it's untranslated. These archeologists just lazy, these I haven't got around to it. You would think that I would answer it. The key is missing. Maybe it must be that, right? So in 1969, there was a British egyptologist whose name was ave Raymond. He did a partial translation. And this text has the section has a group of writings that deal with the mythical origins of the edfu temple. And it's said to be a copy of the writings which Thoth made, according to the words of the sages of mehu it. So this record contains the description of a place where creation began and the quote earliest mansions of the gods were founded. And this was not Egypt. They called it an island. It was known as the island of trampling or island of the egg was another term that's in the text. It was on this island that the first creators of the earth beings with mysterious Supernatural powers and all the gods themselves were believed to have first manifested in some kind of insubstantial form. So they weren't physical beings like you were right. There was still a theory. Yeah, that was still spiritual metaphysical things. Now, they inhabiting bodies. No, they don't use physical bodies. Although maybe they could manifest. In the physical, but they weren't physical. They went off the flesh entirely. Little is known as the original situation of the island except that it was covered in reeds. Which doesn't mean much. But it's important when you compare it to other legends around the world. It's covered in reeds. Illusion is made to the setting up of an enclosure. Digging out of a channel that.

"In 1976 the international commission of jurists reviews its figures. It has sold itself a little short. It now estimates that the number of those massacred under Amin, has reached a colossal 300,000. By the end of his rule, Amnesty International will go even higher, setting his death ammeter at half a million. One in 20 ugandans. At one falls on the river Nile, there is a full-time boatman employed to corral the floating bodies. An estimated 40,000 washing up there by 1977, with a further 10,000 eaten by crocodiles. How long can the world stand by and do nothing? It seems only a matter of time before someone makes a move to bring our men down. Milton about the previous president, whom I mean ousted in a coup, is sitting pretty in Tanzania, biding his time in exile, gathering an army of Ugandan refugees. He failed miserably in his first attempt to retake the country in 1972. But his forces have grown considerably stronger since. Their better organized and the large Tanzanian army is now likely to throw its might behind them. With the everyday slaughtering that means Uganda now to prosaic to trouble the headline writers of the west. They begin to latch instead onto the sensational. There is talk of cannibalism. A rumor that Amin killed and ate the liver of his own son Moses. Word of heads kept in freezers of nighttime visits to the morgue to torn his dead enemies. Of hand feeding victims to crocodiles. Much of this it must be said remains entirely unsubstantiated. Certainly cannibalism is one thing that never has been evidenced. The story seemed to extend from Amin's tribal background. Amongst his people, the kawa, there was an old practice whereby a victorious warrior would remove a slice of flesh from the dead to subdue his spirit. Other rumors originate from an offhand remark by Amin, detailing how a soldier in the bush deprived of supplies is legitimately allowed to eat meat from the buttocks of the dead as means of survival. But no matter. The stories are continually crafted to support a narrative. The western media of the 1970s is in the throes of a fascination with black culture. Films, fashion, literature, pop music. That means purported antics seem more in keeping with a body in a black's quotation movie, or the Bond villain from live and let die. All that's missing is that voodoo so I asked the butler who was I mean chef about the story that Idi Amin kept heads in the freezer. And the butler was emphatic that nothing like that had ever happened on his watch that the freezer was full of good things to eat, but not human heads. I have to say that I think he's probably telling the truth. Headlines generated in the western press at the time are certainly embarrassing. The accompanying cartoons are nothing other than gross caricature. On the front cover of Time Magazine, he is called the wild man of Africa. In Britain, on his hit television show, Benny Hill plays an idiotic amine in blackface. The satirical magazine punch runs a regular column, in which I mean addresses the readers in pidgeon English. In the United States, he's lampooned in the comedy show Saturday Night Live, as a spokesman against venereal disease. Elsewhere, Richard Pryor does a skit in which he Dons a means military uniform. I love American people. I want to say, I had two for lunch. During the first years of his rule, I mean, seemed quite happy to run with the sensational stories. The scarier, the better. Fear is a powerful commodity. He even joked that human flesh was a little too salty for his liking. His western detractors assigned him an image from the get go, that of the African savage. A mean through that back in their faces. But whereas once a man left it off, now, he's taking it personally. The president is fast becoming a figure of macabre fun. And he's an egomaniac. Someone who most definitely reads his own reviews. The way he's being portrayed, the perception of broad, it's getting under his skin. They should not continue with the propaganda because today I can control the British myself. Aware of his diminishing international image, Idi Amin goes on a PR drive. In a bold move, he enlists acclaim director barbet schroder to make a fly on the wall documentary about him. Its titled, general Idi Amin, a self portrait. This French produced film will present his human face. The softer salad. Idi Amin takes the camera crew on a boat trip through a wildlife park. Pointing out the elephants, the crocodiles, the hippos. In his delightfully floral back garden, he introduces his young children. He is the very picture of a family man. The movie also features a mean speaking to camera, expounding his international philosophies. He claims to believe in the conspiracy theory book, the protocols of the elders of Zion. And lavishes praise on the terrorist group black September perpetrators of the Munich Olympic massacre. In one scene, he leads his army on a chaotic training exercise in the Ugandan scrub, as they prepare to evict the Israelis in the Golan Heights. In something bordering on a Keystone cups routine, his elite parachute regiment is shown going about their airborne drills by coming down a children's slide. The film also captures meetings of amines cabinet. Here, there is no mistaking the power mean exerts over his ministers. In one particular session, he upbraids them. Warning them of the dangers of lurking CIA spies and tells them not to behave like weak women. One of those scolded is foreign minister Michael on doga. His body is found floating in the Nile a couple of weeks later. Claiming to be the real director of the film, the one with final cut. Idi Amin orders a re edited version of the documentary, minus the controversial footage. It's shown to great public acclaim in Uganda. The next brigaded international version is, however, released in 1974. Complete with filmed executions and abundant dead bodies. It does little to enhance Amin's image abroad. I mean, even holds 200 French citizens in Uganda hostage, until schroder makes further sympathetic tweaks to bring the film more in line with his personal vision. Nonetheless, with general Idi Amin a self portrait, he holds a unique distinction. As the documentary star, unofficial producer and with a listing in the credits, music, by Idi Amin Dada. He is the only mass murdering dictator,.

When you're deciding west solve your boat is that you can't go back up the river so basically if you've played a game like tokaido this'll be very familiar but the decision you're making as you're deciding where to start in.

I just couldn't couldn't bring myself to say that. I would say and i. It's too gross. Even though that might be how it's actually pronounced we know The reason i think we like even though this an old game is that everything about it felt fresh and actually this is where we should clarify that the version of a you can buy now is a different edition.

"Is moody. There's no other way to put it this. This is genocide at least of the the male children off the hebrews so three stages then relatively mild though being a slave in egypt being really very mild and then you get it. Increasing and increasing through the three stages of how the egyptians treated the hebrews and result of a lattice spent at the end of chapter to look at the last few verses of chapter two it says in verse twenty three that. The people of israel groaned because of the slavery and they. They cried out for help and they cry from rescue from slavery. Came up to god now. What we can do is have a look at now the plagues which cut is gonna bring upon the egyptians. Which is him answering. What they've done his people and he can begin to see that really with the first blake. Remember what happened here is that fair was thrown. The baby boys into the river nile very first plague. The river nile turned to blood. It's as if god is saying. I am going to bring your sin against my people to account now when you look at the ten plagues. Lots of comedy do this. They divide them up into three groups of three. And if you know your max you know that. Three times three equals nine blake's while the tenth plague the death of the firstborn stands out on its own as the final special plague. And we'll look at these three groups of plagues. We noticed something similar to the three periods of persecution. There's an increase in intensity as if god is answering the stages of what fijian's put the children of israel under i three plagues and as we go through exodus. By the time we're done you walk into remember the order of these plagues if you don't know them already 'cause this is as i said. One of my favorite parts of the backs of the first plague was turning the river nile into blood second plague was all the frogs came out of the water and a spoiled absolutely everywhere and then the third plague is the play cough lights on nats. Looks i three plagues and you think well. That was very annoying but not early. Not too bad. I mean if you look at the first blake. They managed to find alternates. Awarded sauce so yes. The water turned into blood is horrible but it didn't destroy the an-and frogs everywhere. Mean slippery slimy frogs. I could stand that if they were all of my house but again it's not gonna kill you and matt slice annoying but not the end of the world so we can look at the first three pleat corresponding to the first stage of persecution annoying but not as bad as it's going to get plagues four five and six.

"Said. Unto Moses. In this statement. We have one of the greatest proofs. The Bible is the inspired word of God. Moses said. And the Lord said unto him. If Moses was mistaken. Or at best confused. We are faced with the unbelievable fact. The greatest system of morals the world has ever known to 10 Commandments. Was given to us by accident. He not only said it once but in the story of the 10 plagues that were given to the Egyptians. He repeated that statement, 10 times. And the Lord said unto Moses. Now. Here are the 10 plagues that befell the land of Egypt. Before Faeroe could be persuaded to let Israel go. First plague was a turning of the water in the blood. The Lord said. Demos is God told Moses to apply his rod to the river and streams and they would become blood. We must note here that the deliverance of Israel from Egyptian bondage began with blood. In a similar manner of the deliverance from Faeroe Devil is not without blood. Without the shedding of blood. There is no remission. They did not know it. We know now that the River Nile there's 3300 miles long. It is the longest river in the world. If God is going to change the river into blood He picked the biggest one to show his mighty power. The river turned in the blood. The fish died. And the river stank. Now river was sacred to the Egyptians. They worshiped it. And to make their religion stink like dead fish. Well, not a very nice thing from Moses to do. Moses would have a hard time finding a place to preach today. If he did anything to give the impression Any false doctrine contrary to the Bible. Smells like dead fish. In the Book of Revelation chapter, 17 is the story of some plagues. That will take place in the last days, and one of them is the turning of water in the blood. Blood as of a dead man. The water's a revelation or identified in that chapter. As people's and languages and tongues. In that sense. The waters have become bloodied already for us today. Payroll had bloodied the waters when he commanded the Israelis. Cast every son into the river. We, too, have bloodied the waters by our laws on abortion. Like Pharaoh. We have killed We have Phil multiplied millions of infants. Welfare only killed a few 1000 most We have done and outdone, Fay role. So we are now drinking blood. Look at the violence on the streets. And the drugs. Plague of blood does upon us now. And the Lord said. Under Moses. Pharaoh's heart was hardened and would not let the people go. So the next plague was the plague of frogs. Moses told Erin to stretch for these hand over the streams of Egypt. And frogs came up. And infested the loan. How God could have sent a plague of lions and tigers. Frogs are all the needed to fulfill your role. There is an incident in revelations 16 that fits in here. John said. I saw three unclean spirits like frogs. Come out of the mouth of the dragon. No, the mouth of the beast and they're the mouth of the Fourth province. Again. We note that if false doctrine Is like unclean frogs. We must have a lot of frogs theology today. Which is a good way to look at any doctrine that contradicts the Bible. Frog theology. Payroll, Big Moses to get rid of the Frogs. Rosa said. When Pero said. Tomorrow. Many today are like Faeroe. They want to postpone salvation. At what time do you want to obey the Lord? And be forgiven. Oh, I think I'll postpone salvation. Postpone heaven. Pero said, Give me one more night with the Frogs. Give me one more night with the devil. Give me one more night with the bottle. Give me one more night. A little more time. With my sin, and he said Tomorrow. Tomorrow. He promised his conscious Tomorrow. I mean to believe Tomorrow. I'll think as I want to think tomorrow my savior receive Tomorrow. Tomorrow. Tomorrow, those a day after day it went on Tamara. Tamara Tamara. Till youth lack of vision was gone. Till age and his passions had written. This message of fate on his brow. And forth from the shadows came death. With the pity of syllable. Now. And he said. Tomorrow. And the Lord said unto Moses. The third plague was the plague of life. God told Erin the stretch out his rod and smite the dust on it would become life. Pero told his magicians to see if they could scare up a few more life equal What Moses and Aaron did. Magician said. We can't do it. We are lousy enough already. And besides, this is the finger of God. This was a miracle that could not be imitated. Devil imitates God in many areas. Only God could bring a living thing out of dust. If he could make a man out of dust. Making life sort of dust was a minor problem. False doctrine may look good, but there is no life in it. The devil gives man an invitation Bible. Any book purporting to be a revelation from God except the Bible is an imitation. Unsuspecting Christians are prone to say, but there is good in all religions. When the devil Here is this, he says Gosha. And the Lord said. Under Moses..
Sudan declares state of emergency over deadly floods
"Sudan has declared a three month state of emergency after unusually heavy seasonal rains that have led to flooding and loss of life and left tens of thousands of people homeless. Tenaga Chip Coto is deputy director of the UN's humanitarian agency Gauche in the Sudanese capital Khartoum. They're flooding has affected over half a million people and then houses that have been totally partially damaged or collapse was over 100,000. So you can you can tell this quite big is affecting the whole country. But it hasn't to say this is the flood period for her, too, But they say it has been way above the norm. So that's why I'm having this impact currently, and it's the flooding caused by hours of torrential rain or or the flooding of the river Nile. It's both. It's both. So if you look at the western parts of the country that's been affected is more your your flash flooding and you get rain's coming incident but also upstream and when the action for blue now is utopia so intimate, so Pia impacting us quite a lot. AM River Banks being briefed, for instance, the Luminal midst the wet now, which is in factual, that area is overflowing and affecting a large area in hunting itself. And those people who have lost their homes, both local residents, and of course, I would imagine lots of refugees and internally displaced people who've lost their shelter. What provisions is being made for them. So before the rains is mentioned, we have joined season so every year we prepared beforehand we preposition our stocks in strategic areas. So areas where you have your displaced people. As you know, Sudan is about more troubling people at this place because ofthe conflict we have drifted. Jesus. Well, bumping one million refugees in Sudan is well and also in certain areas where we know that flood in the regular basis. So the stocks have them The only challenge you having these days that the rains have been way more. Then we expected so as a result, this talk that we had preposition now running law. We all scores a second. And imagine the health system mistress as well. When you have your reins, people need your your medical medical support, but also looking at issues around your your cholera. When there's rain get cholera. You also have your malaria. Making sure people get water to drink is also a big issue in some areas that are flooded. Schools have been flooded and Children to go back to school. So there are a lot of things that are going on most people who are affected along the river. Now they're seeking shelter with strangers, relatives and then is only the ones that do not money to go to friend's urges, or we're friends relate to that as well. Those are the ones that have been sheltered, using tense or you know the concrete buildings. Is there? Um, any silver lining to this particular dark cloud all the rains welcoming away after a period all the drought. The rain's always always bring in good myself. Agriculture. And also for animals. It means that I wasn't able to have grazing land. But right now we don't know what's more. Is it away the stage where it has caused a lot of damage for the compliments because there are some crops that underwater so The impact is yet to assist. As you can imagine. The focus right now is to measure that lives are saved. But that said, I think this is all happened in a country where the economy is that performing too well. It's been in decline for quite a while. We have coffee like any other country. There's competition in the cases of over there around 13,000 cases and slept over 800. Kids were also having a not breaking polio, so a lot of things that are going on and this is adding a layer off neat. We have not seen the end of the rings, so we expect more flooding for the next two or three weeks. Soldiers stop point is really required.
Why can’t Egypt and Ethiopia agree on the Nile dam?
"Now. A reservoir behind a controversial dam built along the River Nile in Ethiopia has started to fill with water. If you open officials say, this is a natural part of the construction process, but neighboring sedan says it's noticed water levels on the blue. Nile have started to drop fast well. The damp has been a source of. Of huge disagreement among Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt the latest round of talks on ensuring all three nations will get enough. Water fell apart on Tuesday well to tell us more I'm joined once again by the Janice Ruth Michelson she's covered this story extensively. Welcome back to monocle twenty four ruth at good to have you on the globalist, and there are satellite images of this reservoir. Tell us what they show. So the satellite images that came out this week show water gathering behind the dam as he said exactly I suppose as it would do if the dam. Were functioning and. Has Said well festival it said during all of the negotiations that have happened that it would fill the damn irregardless of the the outcome of the negotiations and it's also said that some of the the the exact words that the Ethiopian water minister used were the construction of the dam and the filling of the water. Go Hand in hand, so there's some kind of technical process I. Am not an engineer so I'm about to probably explain this badly. But there is a technical process that involves filling part of the water attesting to if the turbines, which is what Ethiopia wanted to begin now and so, what's happened this week is that it's unclear whether that process has actually begun and Ethiopia, simply doesn't doesn't want to say clearly whether this is just natural, build up due to the rain, and of course the satellite pictures will show us the water, but they won't show us. Why and the Sudanese have said that they have noticed that in. In effect is a direct consequence of the filling up of the dam. In Ethiopia, they are seeing less water. Were they'll? Absolutely, so one of the things that we're told about the dam is that. In in the woods, peons regulate the flow of the blue, Nile, which flows from. Hills where rainwater gathers in Ethiopia through Sudan. And up into Egypt and it's true that the Blue Nile does flood and so you know there is some There's some justification there for wanting to to regulate that flow, but it same time one of the things that's going to constrain this entire discussion in the functioning of the dam. Future is drought because that is caused by climate, change and climate change has been exacerbating and lengthening these periods of drought, so there are still floods, but there's longer and more frequent droughts, and so you know I, I actually visited Sudan and I went to Stand on. On the banks of the Blue Nile and talk to some farmers in January and even in the middle of winter, the water levels were already quite depleted. Obviously, this was something. That's extremely alarming. to people who who subsist on the water supply. There so this idea that this this damn is going to to regulate a problem is really only half of the understanding of the functioning of the Blue Nile. And how much are the other countries involved in particular Ethiopia, because it is damn. How much are they mindful of this secondary impact that people in Sedona being a feeling? What Ethiopia has said is that the dam will produce. Excess hydropower once it's once it started and they will sell Sudan a cheap electricity or that they will sit on electricite. Excuse me. So some important context about this is that about seventy percent of the population of Ethiopia live without electricity, so Ethiopia has said that this dam is is essential to the development of their country that they need the electricity that will come from it to function in terms of how this will affect Sudan. There are. Former Sudanese negotiators that I've spoken to who were one in particular. Who quit the Sudanese? Delegation because as soon as negotiations started in two thousand and ten Ethiopia said no matter what we're going to build the dam. And so this particular negotiator said well. What's the point in having a negotiation? Then what are we negotiating over and when he looked at the text? Describing how much electricity Sudan was supposed to get, he said well I. Just don't think this is ever going to happen. I don't think there will be this excess hydropower that you claim. Tell us a little bit more about other countries involved Egypt is closely affected by this. It's to its livelihood dependent on the Nile. And they have started to, I mean they have been integral to all the pushbacks and all the talk, so the in for the entire time. How have they reacted to this filling of the damage? So Egypt has come to view the damn. Stench Threat and there is some justification there because it will deplete the flow. Of the Nile water and the according to Egypt anaylyst. percent of its total water supply and so. They're just you know. This is a country that is struggling to react to the idea that it would have less water for for one hundred million people and so you know part of Egypt's reaction so far. We've seen I wouldn't say it was a confused reaction, but it was a reaction with questions, so the only statement we've seen was the spokesman for Egypt's ministry foreign affairs, saying that he requests urgent official clarification from the Ethiopians about whether they've actually gone to fill the dam and saying that they're following developments on this issue, but at the same time you know they've They've talked about how cutting off Egypt's water supply is a red line There's been. A lot of efforts by Egypt to try and find some external. That will You know help help their case. They took the issue to the UN Security Council at the end of June and the UN Security Council basically told the three countries that they needed to resolve this dispute between themselves. But this is an issue where in the past Egyptian. People in the government back in two thousand and ten have even discussed bombing the damn. There isn't necessarily a suggestion that they're thinking of doing that now, but this is the kind. It's a problem of that level that has been discussed even using violence, which you some idea of just how important this is to the Egyptians
Herodotus - the Animals of Ancient Egypt
"Ancient times. Crocodiles were common in Egypt. These days Egypt does not have many crocodiles as they can't swim. Pass the great concrete. As when damn that now blocks the River Nile but here auditors sore these fierce reptiles snoozing with their mouths open on the banks of the Nile and he noted that small birds sometimes hopped inside the crocs mouths and picked up bits of food from between their teeth. This type of bird is called the Egyptian plover and it still cleans crocodile's teeth for them. Herodotus describes how the crocodiles grows into an enormous animal after hatching out of a tiny egg he says it has is like a pigs and it's huge teeth. Stick out of its mouth. Well he gets some of his fax. Almost not quite correct for instance. He says the crocodile does not eat anything during four months of winter. Actually it does eat but not very much during that time. He also says that the crocodile does not have a tongue in fact it does have one but it's rather small he tells us that some Egyptians held crocodiles to be sacred which means they worshiped him. Like gods those who celebrated crocodiles brought them up at home presumably in something like a bathtub. They decorated their pet crocs with earrings and bracelets for their feet other Egyptians in my view the more sensible ones saw crocodiles as dangerous enemies and even ate them when they got the chance. They used pigs as bait to hunt crocodiles. Some Egyptians also thought that hippopotamuses were sacred. Her auditors probably did not see these creatures for himself. He claimed that hippos had Maine's entails like horses and nayed like them to. He also thought that their hooves were cloven. Split like a bulls. It's not hard to see where he got. These mistaken ideas from the word hippopotamus comes from two Greek words meaning horse and posthumous meaning river so hippopotamus means river horse. He also told us that authors lived in the Nile in those days and in fact ancient Egyptians made statues of waters standing up as if they were praying. Then he tells us that there's a sacred bird which is not seen with his own eyes but only in paintings the feathers of this remarkable bird where red and speckled with gold it was shaped something like an eagle. This was called the Phoenix. The Phoenix lived most of the time in Arabia and was a very rare visitor to Egypt once about every five hundred years when his father died the Phoenix made an egg out of myrrh which is a perfumed gum or resin from the trunk of a tree. He hollowed out the egg and put his father inside it before carrying him to the Temple of the sun in Halio Palace in Egypt where it buried him. Even Herodotus can't bring himself actually to believe this Tall Tale in truth the Phoenix is a mythical bird that does not exist at all. He also tells us about a harmless Egyptian snake with two horns on its head please. Snakes were sacred to the Egyptians when they died they were buried in the temple of Zeus. Whose name was a raw or Eytam the Sun God. He also tells us about tiny snakes which flew every spring from Arabia to Egypt. He has surely thinking about locusts which alike grasshoppers they're described in the Bible as coming to play the Egyptians according to Herodotus a sacred type of bird called the abyss defends Egypt from flying snakes it describes that abyss as having the legs of a crane and along hooked beak Japan's particularly revered the abyss because it fought off the flying snakes. Well those are some of the wild animals and birds that option is considered to be sacred but the most sacred animal of all for ancient. Egyptians was the cow or bull. And next time I will be telling you how the ancient Egyptians worshiped
