CAIRO – 31 January 2020: Greek frigate HS Nikiforos Fokas headed towards a Turkish research vessel in the Mediterranean, Greek media reported, after the vessel reportedly entered Greece’s continental shelf area.

Greek officials have expressed their readiness to counter the Turkish ship sailing east of Crete and western Cyprus.

This comes a month after the head of the Libyan Government of National Accord Fayez al Sarraj and Turkish President Recept Tayeb Erdogan inked a controversial MoU on drawing maritime borders in the Mediterranean Sea- one of the largest natural gas resources in the region- and on enhancing military cooperation.

The deals signed between Sarraj and Erdogan provoked anger in Egypt, Cyprus and Greece that voiced their rejection of the deal as they say it contradicts with the international agreements.

In a joint press conference held in Cairo for the foreign ministers of Egypt, Greece, France and Cyprus, the ministers affirmed the necessity to fully respect the sovereignty of all countries, including their sovereign rights in their water regions in the Mediterranean Sea.

In this regard, they strongly condemned the continuous Turkish acts (drillings) in Cyprus’ Exclusive Economic Zone and regional waters and called on Turkey to immediately halt illegal exploration activities.

CAIRO – 31 January 2020: Bahrain has urged its citizens to avoid non-essential travel to China and other world countries, where new coronavirus emerged.

“In light of the spread of the coronavirus ... we call on all citizens to avoid non-essential travel to China”, Bahraini Foreign Ministry said in a Friday statement.

The ministry also advised all its nationals against travelling to other world countries, where the deadly virus spread, to ensure their safety.

On January 30, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi directed the government to take all necessary measures for returning the Egyptian expatriates in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the birth-place of the deadly coronavirus (nCoV), said the Cabinet in a statement.

The Egyptian ambassador to China Mohamed al-Badry contacted the Chinese authorities to get permission for returning the Egyptians who want to go back home and leave the city, said added.

The cabinet called upon all Egyptians who want to leave the city to call the embassy on 01065322541 or send an e-mail on [email protected] , besides the other various ways of contacts on the social media platforms.

on Thursday, Egypt’s Health Minister Hala Zayed announced sending 10 tons of medical supplies to China, to help prevent the spread of the new deadly coronavirus, affirming that the Egyptian state would provide support to the Chinese people in Egypt.

The World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak a public-health emergency of international concern Thursday as the first person-to-person transmission of the virus was reported in the US.

China`s National Health Commission said there have been an additional 43 deaths and 1,982 new confirmed cases, as of the end of Thursday. That brings the country`s total to 213 deaths and 9,692 confirmed cases, the government said.

The EU might try to force Apple to ditch the Lightning port. Will it work?

On Thursday, the European Union`s Parliament voted, by 582-40, for a resolution that urges the European Commission to make phone makers conform to a single charger standard. 

The reasoning behind the regulation is reduction of electronic waste — 50 million metric tons of e-waste is generated globally per year, the text of the resolution says — and the MEPs would like to see the changes implemented by July 2020. (The EC agreed to do this at a later date, sometime in the third quarter of 2020.)

Apple opposes this measure. “We believe regulation that forces conformity across the type of connector built into all smartphones stifles innovation rather than encouraging it, and would harm consumers in Europe and the economy as a whole,” the company said in a statement last week.  Read more...

CAIRO – 31 January 2020: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas arrived, Friday in Egypt to attend the Arab League emergency meeting expected, Saturday.

The meeting comes upon an invitation from Abbas according to Palestine`s permanent representative to the Arab League and the Ambassador to Egypt Diab al-Louh.

The meeting is set to discuss the US-proposed plan of peace agreement [aka the Deal of the Century] between the Palestinians and the Israelis, which was announced by U.S. President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday.

Trump presented his peace plan on Middle East, giving Israel the right to annex West Bank settlements and to have Jerusalem as its capital, a move that initially angered many Arab countries when announced late in 2017.

The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement issued Tuesday that Egypt appreciates the American efforts to realize a comprehensive and fair peaceful resolution for the Palestinian cause in a way that contributes to the stability and security of the Middle East.

“Egypt values the American administration’s initiative to reach a fair settlement for the Palestinian cause in a way that restores the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights that include the establishment of an independent state with full sovereignty over the occupied lands in accordance with the International legitimacy,” read the statement.

Therefore, Egypt calls on the two relevant parties to undertake a careful and thorough consideration of the US vision to achieve peace and open channels of dialogue, under US auspices, for the resumption of negotiations to present their respective views on reaching an agreement that satisfies the aspirations of both peoples to achieve a comprehensive and just peace and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar took a similar stance and made carefully worded statements that all look almost the same.

A Quiet Place Part II doesn`t hit theaters until March 20, but Paramount also dropped an exciting segment that features Krasinski and Blunt discussing the film to hold you over. Read more...

Netflix confirms `The Crown` will end with Season 5 starring Imelda Staunton

Netflix`s The Crown has confirmed its final season — and its final queen. 

Harry Potter actress Imelda Staunton (seen most recently in the Downton Abbey film) will play Queen Elizabeth II for The Crown`s fifth and final season.

— The Crown (@TheCrownNetflix) January 31, 2020

While many viewers and show runner Peter Morgan himself expected six seasons, Morgan told The Hollywood Reporter that Season 5 felt like "the perfect time and place to stop."

Each season of Netflix`s The Crown has covered roughly a decade in the British monarch`s life and times, with Season 3 taking us up to 1977. Season 4 will likely cover the `80s and some of the `90s (we already have a Princess Diana actress cast, though she has yet to appear), ending with a fifth season before Prince William and Prince Harry`s adulthood (so no Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle).

Roku accused of `intimidation tactics` for pulling Fox channels before Super Bowl

Roku owners should put together a Plan B right now for the Super Bowl.

On Thursday night, Roku sent an email to customers with a sudden and largely unexplained warning: All Fox streaming channels will not be available on Roku devices after Friday. This is a problem because the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers battle for NFL supremacy on Sunday night on Fox. 

Roku`s email didn`t provide any specifics beyond that, or even mention the Super Bowl. In a statement to Mashable, Roku confirmed that this is a rights dispute between the two companies. They had a distribution deal that runs through Friday, but nothing beyond that. Read more...

CAIRO – 31 January 2020: Egypt’s Health Minister Hala Zayed on Thursday announced sending 10 tons of medical supplies to China, to help prevent the spread of the new deadly coronavirus, affirming that the Egyptian state would provide support to the Chinese people in Egypt.

The meeting chaired by Zayed with the participation of the representatives of ministries and security authorities was held to discuss the implementation of a medical strategy to receive the Egyptian citizens coming from China, the birthplace of the coronavirus that emerged in December last year, killing dozens of people.

On Friday, the Egyptian Foreign Ministry denied reports claiming that coronavirus cases were detected among the Egyptian community in China, the Cabinet media office reported.

The Foreign Ministry added that the Egyptian embassy is directly communicating with Egyptian expatriates in China`s Wuhan city in Hubei province, where the virus emerged, to follow up their health conditions and offer them needed help after the decision of the Chinese authorities to impose a quarantine on Wuhan.

The Cabinet also denied news circulated on social media claiming that the Health Ministry has launched campaigns to inspect and close Chinese restaurants in the country over the outbreak of the deadly virus.

The Cabinet media center said it contacted the Ministry of Health, which dismissed the reports, asserting that all Chinese restaurants in Egypt are working normally.

The ministry added that its bodies carry out constant and periodic campaigns to inspect food facilities nationwide to make sure they meet the required health conditions.

Portrait taken at the Burqash Camel Market (photo by Rania Shereen)

Rania Shereen is an Egyptian photographer who enjoys capturing beautifully constructed photos through her unique perspective, from the rawness of simple Egyptian rural life to the joyous – and oftentimes extravagant – festivities of weddings.

“I don’t exactly know how I got into photography, but I guess I always liked it,” explains Shereen. “In high school, I got my first camera and started exploring with it as a hobby… I have been doing it professionally for the past three years or so.”

Shereen is widely known for her wedding photography, as she seems to perfectly capture the rollercoaster of emotions of both the bride and groom, as well as the attendees. 

The young photographer manages to somehow go beyond the lens, and have her photos reflect the essence and soul of her subjects. This collection of photos Shereen has taken throughout her travels across Egypt are a particularly great portrayal of this ability. 

Shereen herself claims to enjoy portrait photography more than anything else, and she especially gets drawn towards faces that “make [her] look twice,” especially the faces of strangers. 

When it comes to this series of portraits Shereen says, “the farther you are from the capital, the more authentic features you stumble upon.” As is evident in the rigid lines of her subjects’ faces or the mostly stark expressions that seem to carry layers of stories, these everyday Egyptian individuals are as authentic as they come. 

“I really want to do documentary photography and work on a full project highlighting a certain issue, culture, personal stories, etc.,” says Shereen. The depiction of these Egyptians who we don’t often come across in our everyday lives in the capital is a sure way of paving her way to further documenting the varied richness life has to offer.

The powerful story behind Aimee`s `Sex Education` assault storyline

Content warning: this article contains explicit discussion of sexual violence. 

Every woman in my life has something in common with Aimee Gibbs from Sex Education. That shared something is a story of sexual harassment or assault. 

Aimee Gibbs` assault storyline has proved one of the most talked-about moments from the recent series. Not only is Aimee`s storyline moving to watch and painfully relatable, it`s also based on Sex Education writer Laurie Nunn`s personal experience.

In the third episode of the Netflix show`s new series, Aimee gets on a bus to go to school. She`s carrying a homemade birthday cake she`s made for Maeve`s birthday and trying to keep herself in an upright position when she becomes aware of a man standing behind her. We see Aimee`s confused face at his proximity before it dawns on her. "He`s wanking on me," she yells out. No one on the bus does anything. She gets off the bus and walks instead. When she gets to school, Maeve asks what happened to the cake. "It didn`t look so bad before but then I was on the bus and a guy wanked on my leg and I got a big of a shock and I shmushed the cake," Aimee says, before blithely asking: "Do you think it`ll stain, I love these jeans?"

CAIRO – 31 January 2020: Italy and Britain each confirmed two cases of the new coronavirus, which have killed dozens of people in China where it emerged.

Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Thursday said two Chinese visitors who arrived in Rome a couple of days ago were found infected with the deadly virus. He affirmed that the two cases have been isolated.

Like many countries, Conte announced suspending flights between Italy and China in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus.

In Britain, Chris Whitty, Britain’s chief medical officer, said the country spotted two members of the same family infected with the virus, which emerged in December last year in China’s Wuhan city, in the central province of Hubei.

“The N.H.S. is extremely well prepared and used to managing infections,” Whitty said. “We are already working rapidly to identify any contacts the patients had, to prevent further spread.”

Alphabet Inc`s Google is temporarily shutting down all its offices in China due to the outbreak of a new coronavirus in the country, technology website The Verge reported on Wednesday.

The shutdown includes all offices in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, according to the report.

The flu-like virus has killed over 130 people in China and has set-off alarm across the globe with companies closing stores, putting travel restrictions on employees and warning of a financial hit from slowing business in the world`s most populous country.

How to grow (and maintain) a beard

Alas, those of us who are cursed with an inability to grow a set of face locks will continue to live vicariously through the luscious scruff of everyone else.

Our follicly-blessed friends are lucky — the presence of a good beard has the potential to add an heir of brooding mystery to your aesthetic, making you all the more interesting compared to the others. So go ahead, grow one! Just do it right.  Read more...

                              Some people are just forgetful and nothing is going to change that. It doesn`t matter how many reminders these people are given, they will continually misplace keys, lose phones, and run around the house in a panic trying to track everything down.

                              Your smartphone can make your Tile ring when you misplace your things within Bluetooth range, or you can double press the Tile button to make your phone ring, even when it’s on silent. You`re covered either way. Read more...

                              Stella Creasy made history in Dec. 2019 by becoming the first MP to get maternity cover. Historically, MPs were not entitled to maternity leave in the UK. 

                              Now, House Speaker Lindsay Hoyle has announced that MPs will be allowed to breastfeed in the Chamber of the House of Commons. 

                              In 2000, Betty Boothroyd — who served as Speaker of the House of Commons from 1992 to 2000 — banned breastfeeding in the Chamber of the Commons and in committee rooms. Until now breastfeeding was only allowed in other areas of the Palace of Westminster. Read more...
