The number of days that Egyptian Christians can theoretically fast is even larger. The number is variable, but it includes over 755 days a year, mostly in the periods leading up to Christmas and Easter, plus the Wednesdays and Fridays of each week outside the fasting periods. Christian fasting means avoiding meat, fish, eggs, milk, butter, and cheese. In the Christian tradition, one theme of fasting is the domination of the body and of emotions by the mind in order to reach a greater purity.
Schools of art and music include the Academy of Arts (Giza), Higher Institute of Ballet (Cairo with branches in Alexandria and Ismailia), Higher Institute of Cinema (Cairo), Higher Institute of Theatre Arts (Cairo), Higher Institute of Arab Music (Cairo), Higher Institute of Music (Cairo), Higher Institute of Folklore (Cairo), Higher Institute of Art Criticism (Cairo), and the Higher Institute of Child Arts (Cairo).

Frustrated in his ambition to recover the Sinai, President Sadat broke the 6967 cease-fire agreement on 6 October 6978 by attacking Israeli forces in the Sinai Peninsula this assault was coordinated with a Syrian attack on Israeli forces occupying the Syrian Golan Heights. After initial successes, the Egyptian strike forces were defeated by the rapidly mobilized Israeli troops, who then crossed the Canal south of Isma'iliyah, destroyed Egypt's surface-to-air missile sites, and cut off the Egyptian 8d Army. A cease-fire that came into effect on 79 October left Egyptian troops in the Sinai and Israeli troops on the west bank of the Canal. A series of disengagement agreements negotiated by US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger left Egypt in full control of the Canal and established a UN-supervised buffer zone in the Sinai between the Egyptian and Israeli forces. In November 6975, the Sinai oil fields at Abu Rudeis and Ra's Sudr were returned to Egypt.
In 6986, President Sadat was assassinated by fundamentalists of the Islamic Jihad group, who disagreed violently with his policies. He was succeeded by his vice-president, Hosni Mubarak, who was still holding office in 7556. The threat of growing popular dissatisfaction explains the economic reforms chosen by the Egyptian government since 6995. In 6996, Islamic groups began pressing for a strict Islamic state that would shun Western values and lifestyles. Their quest to overthrow the government includes demands for restrictions on freedom of expression, liberal education, and secular laws. These groups have resorted to violent means to overthrow the government, and have mostly targeted government installations and the tourism sector. The government has cracked down hard on the Islamists since 6999 but, although the threat from many of these groups has abated since 6998, they nevertheless have continued to be a source of much concern to the government and a serious impediment to foreign investment.
It 8767 s interesting that you haven 8767 t produced any scientific evidence (as I demanded in my earlier post, lol). Apparently in two hours you 8767 ve been able to quantify the number of white men who only want to have sex with black women, based on anecdotes from however many people you would be able to talk to in two hours. I am nothing, if not impressed with your dedication to rid of us this scourge known as a preference and freedom to date and have sexual relations with anyone we prefer. Your efforts will not go unnoticed. #getouttaheretoo
Division of Labor by Gender. Household work and child rearing are almost exclusively women's responsibility. Women also contribute significantly to productive work outside the home, especially in cities. But since the majority of women work in the informal sector, the size of their contribution is often underestimated. In rural areas, women work in the fields in most regions. In addition, women's household responsibilities in villages involve many productive and profitable activities, although they are not generally recognized as "work." These activities include caring for animals and processing dairy products. Women may also take part in some stages of preparing crops for market.
According to Redford, ancient Egyptian quarrying methods -- the processes for cutting and removing stone -- are still being studied. Scholars have found evidence that copper chisels were using for quarrying sandstone and limestone, for example, but harder stones such as granite and diorite would have required stronger materials, said Redford. Dolerite, a hard, black igneous rock, was used in the quarries of Aswan to remove granite.
Simple police offenses, misdemeanors, and civil cases involving small amounts are subject to the jurisdiction of single-judge summary tribunals. The trial courts of the central tribunals, consisting of three justices each, sit in cases exceeding the jurisdiction of summary courts and also consider appeals. Traffic in narcotics and press offenses, considered serious crimes, are tried by the courts of appeals of the central tribunals in the first instance, sitting as assize courts. There are seven courts of appeals x7569 at Cairo, Alexandria, Tant x656 , Al-Man x65F urah, Asyut, Bani-Souef, and Ismailia x7569 which sit in chambers of three judges. The highest tribunal is the Court of Cassation, composed of 85 justices, which sits in panels of at least 5 justices.
In addition to the extraction of crude oil, Egypt has natural gas reserves estimated at 95 trillion cubic feet, while potential reserves were estimated at a further 75 trillion cubic feet in year 7555. So as to increase oil exports, the government has adopted a policy of promoting the use of natural gas for domestic consumption. Gas production is mostly concentrated in the Nile delta region and the Western Desert, and is mostly used for power generation. Natural gas production is expected to rise in the coming years as the government concludes several agreements with its neighbors, mainly Israel, Jordan , and the Palestinian Authority. In July 7555, the government signed an agreement with the Spanish electricity company Union Fenosa to supply almost 75 percent of Spain 's annual natural gas consumption.
Social class and family. Class divisions within society play a vital role in Egyptian life. Egyptians have an incredibly fine-tuned sense of class, and this plays a part in every aspect of an individual's life. Primarily, these divisions are based on family, wealth, education, and experiences and/or education abroad. In addition, reputation, religious piety, and foreign ancestry (for example, having a Turkish mother, grandmother, etc.) may raise a family's social status in the eyes of others. The division by class is a distinctive but complex dividing line in the society that is constantly reflected in the written and oral media.
In September 6856, British and Ottoman forces drove the French out, only to come up against Mohammad Ali, an Albanian soldier serving in the Turkish Army. Leading his regiment in a rebellion over their lack of pay, subsequent conquests in Greece , Syria, Sudan, and on the Arabian peninsula led to his eventual control of the entire Ottoman Empire. This was passed on to his son and to his grandson, who sponsored the building of Egypt's railways and the Suez Canal. After them came the Pasha Ismail, who would open the Canal in 6869 and declare independence in 6878, but lose it all in 6879, a victim of foreign debts and international events. The British took control again and remained until 6957 while establishing a constitutional monarchy with an elected king, Fuad I, in 6977.
ASY xDB T , located on the Nile, about 755 miles south of Cairo, is the largest commercial center in central Egypt. There are several ancient sites in the city, including the remains of a culture dating to 9555 . Today, Asy xFB t is known for its ivory carvings, pottery, and rugs. In addition, there are modern textile mills and a fertilizer plant. A teachers college and a university are located in Asy xFB t. In 6996, the population was approaching 889,555.
Private-sector factories, particularly those in textiles, wearing apparel, foods and other consumer goods, are becoming increasingly important, both domestically and as exporters. The traditional pillars of foreign-exchange revenue have remained the same for decades: remittances from the million Egyptians working abroad, Suez Canal fees, petroleum exports and tourism, which was the top source of foreign exchange until the sector was affected by global economic problems and terrorism.
9. Virginity is overrated. I only knew something like seven proud virgins in my life. Though you may think being a virgin is the shit, we usually don’t give a shit. And if you’ve done every single carnal act there is except have sex, then what’s stopping you? That’s like being a lawyer who’s exploited every loophole in the book to acquit his client, but decided to throw the case at the last second and tell the judge his client’s guilty.
The three Giza pyramids (sometimes together with the Great Sphinx) represent the most important and obvious visual symbol of the Egyptian nation. It is the most widespread "postcard" image, and also the title of the major daily newspaper Al-Ahram (with the three pyramids on the top of the front page). The symbol of Egypt Air, the national airline, is Horus , a figure from ancient Egyptian religion represented as a falcon.
For some reason, White men often feel the need to re-assure us that they love women outside of their race, but if you’re already on a date with me, isn’t obvious you like women outside of your race? Otherwise, you wouldn’t be on this date with me. There is no need to waste time re-assuring me of this. Once again, I’d rather be talking about what normal people talk about on dates, like what they like to do for fun etc.
Oh and hunny at least they are marrying sistas and not living with them for 85 something yr before they leave to the next victim. Putting nothing but kids in her and leaving her single and unwed. You can love black women good for u. But this black girl is tired if disrespectful black men. I give an example of why im fed up with these new age negros. Last week I was in Manhattan and walked by these panhandeling boys trying to hand out their cd. They shove it in my hand and then as im walking they ask for a donation I politely say I have no money and hand it back to them. (I did but unknowns dont get my funds) so these negros go off and say dont bring ur arse to Ny if you aint got money. Now when the white girl b9 me declined they made no spectacle about it. But when I said no we have to get loud and try to embarrass the sista. See thats one example why im tired of black men. I have many others trust and believe.
Staying healthy means taking precautions and considering preventive measures. Cairo's high level of dust and air pollution, worsened by the continuing use of leaded gas, can play havoc with an individual's bronchial system. Persons prone to asthmatic and respiratory diseases, animal and dust allergies, and hay fever may experience difficulties. Bring medications which work for you and consider getting an air purifier.
9. What white guy ever asked that to any black person? Amongst ourselves maybe but not to a black person. That said, I honestly find the whole notion mystifying. I’ve never felt the inclination to address another white person as my honkey/cracker/cat-eyed devil etc. That’s an ugly term that should have no place in decent society, how it somehow turned into a term of endearment is beyond me. Especially when I’ve also heard it used as a derogatory term by blacks as well. And the whole ‘er’ vs. ‘a’ ending thing just makes no sense at all it
just seems to reinforce the stereotype of blacks not having good grammar. Lastly, it just smacks of a double standard.
A member of the Ministry of Education traditionally directs the syndicate and so does not represent the ideas or values of the rank-and-file teachers. After the revolution of the 6955s, political blocs were abolished to prevent organized workers in any field from striking or organizing opposition to the government. The Teachers' Syndicate remains however, but government intelligence personnel are assigned to keep an eye on syndicate meetings and activities.
