      for - progress traps - exceptional civilizations - Egypt and China

      progress traps - exceptional civilizations - Egypt and China - While 1,000 years seems to be the norm for the lifetime of an average civilization, China and Egypt have both endured 3 times as long - Egypt had the self-replenishing Nile River with topsoil being washed down from Ethiopia every year to maintain their soil fertility - So they avoided the salinity problem until modern times with the construction of high dams that have had unintended consequences - China also had unusual conditions of exceptionally deep layers of annually replenished topsoil called loess that were formed by being blown in by the wind from surrounding areas

    1. 到埃及前什麼都不用做~只要在抵達埃及,下飛機、過海關之後,在出境大廳應該就可以看到有一些電信公司的櫃檯,直接前往這些電信公司的櫃檯購買「sim卡」就可以啦!這些電信公司櫃檯會設置在機場航廈裡,就表示遊客也是他們服務對象的大宗,所以櫃檯人員通常都是會說英文的!不太用擔心語言不通的問題~比較要注意的是,有一種sim卡應該是專門給外國遊客使用的,只有上網功能,沒辦法接、打電話,但是我個人非常不建議買這樣的上網sim卡原因有二,第一是網路溝通畢竟還是會有時間差的問題,畢竟應該不是每個人都會24小時都在看手機、使用網路,所以如果遇到急事(需要聯絡住宿、司機、導遊等等,甚至需要打跨國電話聯絡親友)時,相信打電話還是比較即時、方便一些的!再來就是,花的錢都差不多,為什麼不選擇可以打電話又可以上網的兩用sim卡呢?所以總結就是我個人是比較建議買一般可以打電話又可以上網的sim卡的~~埃及有三大電信公司:Orange、Vodafone跟Etisalat大概就跟我們的遠傳、台灣大哥大還有中華電信一樣的概念,所以訊號上基本上應該是三家都差不多,所以大家就憑喜好選擇吧!(我自己是用Orange,覺得沒什麼太大的問題~其他兩間因為沒使用過所以就不太清楚實際狀況~)

    1. VAT applies on such imported products at 14% of the customs/import duty paid (the VAT base will be based upon the invoice value CIF, the customs duty, and other taxes).

    1. In May 2014, the Egyptian Ministry of Trade and Industry issued a decree banning the importation of motorcycles and three-wheel vehicles, except for tricycles and chassis for trade. The decree bans the importation of CBUs (Completely Built Units) yet allows the importation of SKD (Semi Knocked Down) motorcycle chassis and engines. This ban remains in place today.

    1. What is Coptic?Coptic is the name of the last phase (ca. 300 CE - 1300 CE) of the longest-attested human language yet available to linguistic study, the Ancient Egyptian lan­guage. Closely connected to the Christian population of Egypt, Coptic is one of the most important languages of ancient Christian literature, alongside Greek, Latin and Syriac. A great deal of Biblical and early Christian literature was translated into Coptic for Egyptian consumption, while an autochthnous Coptic Christian literature flourished for centuries.

    1. we have to think of the road between cop 26 in glasgow and cop 00:20:28 27 in egypt we have to think of a development cop a cop that focuses on equity that focuses on the resources and that focuses on how do we 00:20:40 ensure that the trust equation is not undermined in order that we can all collectively deliver on the remaining carbon equation that is left with us

      The danger is that this is a demonstrably recursive behavior. Each year, COP commitments never meet the target, but there is promise to meet them next time. Kick-the-can-down-the-road has become normalized result of COPs.

    1. The spices coming from India are brought to this city of Chos [Al-Qusayr, Egypt]. Then, they are taken to Babylon [Al-Fustat, Egypt] and Alexandria.

      The Indian trade route was as still influential due too the high demand of silk and spice. Usually the trade was through port hopping from merchants. As most at this time period merchants were scared of the sea so they would costal hop. That's how India got brought trade to Al Qusayr and to Al Fustat..

    2. This is the middle branch of Mount Tauris [Tibesti Mountains]. Many Saracens coming from the West pass through this mountain wishing to go to Mecca to see the arch of Mohamed that contains their Law.

      Mecca is considered the holy city of Islam, near Cairo, Egypt on the west side of Africa. When Mansa Musa made his pilgrimage, as is tradition for a Malian sovereign, he impressed the court so much with his offering that people wrote about it for decades to come. Looking further at his journey, we note that he left Niani and most definitely passed one of the branches of Mount Tauris (the Tibesti Mountains). It's incredibly interesting to think about how long this journey was, and the fact that he left such a large impression by his gifts and wealth was fascinating to me considering the era. In our readings, it also said he brought 10,000 of his followers, which is even more incredible that that many people made this perilous journey

    1. Akhenaton placed much emphasis on the worship of the Egyptian sun which can be seen from many artistic depictions of a connection between the Pharoh and his family.[28] Some debate has focused on the extent to which Akhenaten forced his religious reforms on his people.[29] Certainly, as time drew on, he revised the names of the Aten, and other religious language, to increasingly exclude references to other gods; at some point, also, he embarked on the wide-scale erasure of traditional gods' names, especially those of Amun.
    2. Akhenaten tried to shift his culture from Egypt's traditional religion, but the shifts were not widely accepted. After his death, his monuments were dismantled and hidden, his statues were destroyed, and his name excluded from the king lists.[12] Traditional religious practice was gradually restored, and when some dozen years later rulers without clear rights of succession from the 18th Dynasty founded a new dynasty, they discredited Akhenaten and his immediate successors, referring to Akhenaten himself as "the enemy" or "that criminal" in archival records

In rethinking education to cope with rapid changes atthe threshold of the twenty-first century, innovation, techno-logy, and research are indispensable tools of education.Failure to innovate by and large means repeating yesterday'seducational programmes and strategies tomorrow, which willonly further jeopardize education's reputation as contributorto development efforts.

    1. Women were afforded much the same rights as men in Egyptian society.

    2. At least 15 egyptian pharaohs were known to be women. This article from 2014 suggests there were at least 7. It's crazy how in just 3 years they discovered that there were more than twice as many. This really speaks to the cover up by the scientific community to exclude women from history.

    3. Hatshepsut took over rule for her son because he was too young but continued on even after he was of age. She was known as a royal warrior and monumental builder.

    4. Arsenoe's rule was pretty much the start of capitalism.

      During her rule as pharaoh coins started being used in most transactions.

    5. Arsenoe's crown's various components pay homage to all the powerful women before her.

    6. Nefertari's earings were given to her by the Greeks and she wore them throughout her life.

    7. I didn't realize all the pharaohs wore fake tie on beards!

    1. The ambitious plan includes a bridge spanning the Red Sea, connecting the proposed city to Egypt and the rest of Africa. Some 10,000 square miles (25,900 square kilometers) have been allocated for the development of the urban area that will stretch into Jordan and Egypt.#lazy-img-319534026:before{padding-top:75%;}

    1. President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Saturday ordered the government to take all necessary measures to help resettle Christians who have fled Egypt’s Northern Sinai after Daesh killed several members of the community.

      No source for this information is given though the phrase "take all necessary measures" suggests an official communique.

    1. Hdt. 2.2. The Nature vs. Nurture enigma is presented here. It is advocated here that language is biologically programmed here and thus language is a nature phenomenon. However, the nature v. nurture debate has become bane in the field of psychology. Do the lengths or widths make a rectangle?
