History Extra explains... What did people eat in Ancient Egypt? | History Extra | Nubia | Scoop.it
What did people eat in Ancient Egypt? The River Nile had a regular cycle that gave Egypt her three seasons: the time of inundation (when the land was covered with water), the time of coming forth (when the crops sprouted in the fertile fields), and the time of summer (when the harvested ground baked beneath the hot sun).

Creating Private Sector Jobs is the Surest Path to Boosting Shared Prosperity in Egypt

Egypt has been plagued for many years by low-quality, insecure and unstable jobs but this can be reversed through reforms aimed at vitalizing the private sector, promoting formal employment, and engaging excluded and vulnerable populations.
Experience Nubia's insight:
The World Bank’s portfolio in Egypt includes 26 projects for a total commitment of US$5.5 billion. The World Bank finances projects for faster delivery of benefits to the people of Egypt in key sectors including energy, transport, water and sanitation, agriculture and irrigation as well as health and education.

How much would it cost to build the Pyramid today? Earth Pyramid Featured on NBC News - | Nubia | Scoop.it
Writing for Science on NBC News, Natalie Wolchover asks how much would it cost to build the Great Pyramid today? She interviews architect Jean Pierre Houdin
Experience Nubia's insight:

There are no plans to build a full-scale Great Pyramid, but a campaign for a scaled-down model is under way. The Earth Pyramid Project, based in the United Kingdom, is raising funds to erect a pyramidal structure in an as-yet-undecided location, built of stones quarried all around the world. It will contain a time capsule, to be opened 1,000 years from now.

Funded by governments and organizations around the globe, the Earth Pyramid will not only provide a window into contemporary culture for future societies, it will also serve as an opportunity to test Houdin’s construction theory of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
