Mummies Show Symptoms, Offer Disease Clues

Williams Whether laid to rest in a simple grave or a grand tomb, the human body rarely survives the sweep of time. But in a few places where people deliberately mummified their dead, or the environmental conditions were right—very dry or wet—flesh and bone are preserved. Today these remains, probed by modern CT scans, MRIs, and DNA tests, are offering intriguing insights into how people lived and died long ago. A 2011 study of 52 mummies in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo showed that almost half had clogged arteries, the kind of condition that can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Pour l’article homophone, voir Petra. Pétra (de πέτρα petra, « rocher » en grec ancien ; البتراء Al-Butrāʾ en arabe), de son nom sémitique[1] Reqem ou Raqmu (« la Bariolée »)[2],[3], est une cité nabatéenne pré-islamique de l'actuelle Jordanie située dans le Wadi Rum.

La zone autour du site est également, depuis 1993, un parc national archéologique.

Middle East Chronology (Read First) Ancient Egypt 3150-332 BC. Garden of Eden. The Garden of Eden (Hebrew גַּן עֵדֶן, Gan ʿEḏen) is the biblical "garden of God", described most notably in the Book of Genesis chapters 2 and 3, and also in the Book of Ezekiel.[2] The "garden of God", not called Eden, is mentioned in Genesis 14, and the "trees of the garden" are mentioned in Ezekiel 31.

Garden of Eden

The Book of Zechariah and the Book of Psalms also refer to trees and water in relation to the temple without explicitly mentioning Eden.[3] Traditionally, the favoured derivation of the name "Eden" was from the Akkadian edinnu, derived from a Sumerian word meaning "plain" or "steppe". Eden is now believed to be more closely related to an Aramaic root word meaning "fruitful, well-watered. "[2] The Hebrew term is translated "pleasure" in Sarah's secret saying in Genesis 18:12.[4] Biblical narratives[edit] Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egypt. Israel’s Fading Democracy. WHEN an American presidential candidate visits and his key message is to encourage us to pursue a misguided war with Iran, declaring it “a solemn duty and a moral imperative” for America to stand with our warmongering prime minister, we know that something profound and basic has changed in the relationship between Israel and the United States.

Israel’s Fading Democracy

My generation, born in the ’50s, grew up with the deep, almost religious belief that the two countries shared basic values and principles. Back then, Americans and Israelis talked about democracy, human rights, respect for other nations and human solidarity. It was an age of dreamers and builders who sought to create a new world, one without prejudice, racism or discrimination. Listening to today’s political discourse, one can’t help but notice the radical change in tone.

Les fanas d’architecture moderne connaissent déjà la ville blanche de Tel-Aviv, classée par l’UNESCO au patrimoine mondial.

Mais il serait dommage d’arrêter là un périple architectural dans la métropole israélienne qui, aussi jeune soit-elle, inclut le pittoresque port fortifié de Jaffa, l’une des plus anciennes villes du monde. Environ deux kilomètres séparent le centre-ville de la vieille cité. Jusqu’au début des années 2000, il était impossible de circuler de l’un à l’autre le long de la côte méditerranéenne puisque les anciennes installations portuaires bloquaient le passage. Depuis, le port a fait l’objet d’un lifting majeur : ses entrepôts ont notamment été convertis en restaurants ou en espaces commerciaux.

Le littoral est devenu un gym à ciel ouvert où évoluent piétons, cyclistes, joggeurs et autres bienheureux bipèdes, ce qui sied parfaitement à l’image de la ville hédoniste et dynamique que nous vous invitons à découvrir.
