Dr. ABD’EL HAKIM AWYAN

HAKIM’ (for short), was a wisdom-keeper of the Ancient Egyptian Mysteries, and was born and lived in the village beneath the Giza Plateau; he grew up with the great pyramids of Giza as his playground. He was a Khemitian, or Khemite – a man from Khem (Egypt), which means the ‘black land’. This didn’t mean that the people were black, or that they had anything to do with dark, or black practices – it meant quite simply that the land – the earth itself – was black, because the soil was enriched and fertile from the annual flooding of the river Nile.

Hakim could be described as a wise elder: a man who had not only been born into a family where knowledge was passed down from generation to generation, but had travelled afar and studied engineering and archaeology. While speaking and teaching to…

Gabriel García Márquez Dead: Nobel Prize-Winning Author Dies At 87

Colombian novelist Gabriel García Márquez has died at age 87, a source close to the family told the Associated Press. Márquez had been recently hospitalized for infections in his lungs and his urinary tract.

MEXICO CITY — Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel laureate whose novels and short stories exposed tens of millions of readers to Latin America’s passion, superstition, violence and inequality, died at home in Mexico City around midday, according to people close to his family. He was 87.

Widely considered the most popular Spanish-language writer since Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century, Garcia Marquez achieved literary celebrity that spawned comparisons to Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.

Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon

Astronomers have said the “blood moon” that took place during the early hours of Tuesday 15 April 2014 was the first in a rare consecutive series of four, which will take place over the next two years.

The phenomenon is called a tetrad of lunar eclipses and although the event is rare, Nasa have stated that several tetrads will occur during this century alone.

Although one tetrad appeared in 2003 and 2004, there have been gaps of up to 500 years between the series of eclipses.

The current tetrad will take place in 2014 and 2015, with the second eclipse on 8 October, the third on 4 April and the final eclipse on 28 September. The next series of four will not happen again until 2032.

Fred Espenak, a Nasa astrophysicist, said it was “most unusual” that the current four eclipses of the moon will be “visible for all or parts of the USA”.

He added: “During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses.

Total Lunar Eclipse 2014: Blood Moon Connected to Doomsday?

“But this has not always been the case. During the three hundred year interval from 1600 to 1900, for instance, there were no tetrads at all.”

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned directly between the Sun and the moon. According to Nasa, the Earth is surrounded with a fiery light which beams into its shadow, giving the moon an amber glow.

The moon’s plane of orbit is slightly tilted, which is why a total eclipse does not occur every month.

Previous tetrads have coincided with significant religious and historic events and the current series of blood moons aligns the Jewish Passover, which takes place on 15 April, and feast of the Tabernacle in October.

In 1493, the first tetrad since the Middle Ages, saw the expulsion of Jews by the Catholic Spanish Inquisition, which rocked western Europe. The second coincided with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1949 and in 1967, one took place at the time of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day war.

Meanwhile, some Christians have cited fears that the event could have catastrophic consequences, referring to a passage in the Bible which reads: “The Sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes.”

To reduce your risk of cancer, look no further than your fridge. “All the studies on cancer and nutrition point to eating plant-based foods for their phytonutrients and other special compounds,” says Richard Béliveau, PhD, chair in the prevention and treatment of cancer at the University of Québec at Montreal and author of Foods to Fight Cancer.

Aim for five to nine daily servings of all kinds of fruits and vegetables—especially these six superstars.

Broccoli

All cruciferous veggies (think cauliflower, cabbage, kale) contain cancer-fighting properties, but broccoli is the only one with a sizable amount of sulforaphane, a particularly potent compound that boosts the body’s protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals, says Jed Fahey, ScD. A recent University of Michigan study on mice found that sulforaphane also targets cancer…

Tsunami alert after 8.2 quake strikes off Chile

Tsunami alert after 8.2 quake strikes off Chile

Thousands left their homes after the warning was issued, as Alpa Patel reports

A quake of 8.2 magnitude has struck off northern Chile, triggering a tsunami alert and killing at least five people.

The US Geological Survey said the quake struck at 20:46 local time (23:46 GMT) about 86km (52 miles) north-west of the mining area of Iquique.

Waves of up to 2.1m (6ft) have hit some areas in Chile, and there have been power cuts, fires and landslides.

Tens of thousands of people were evacuated in affected areas, where a state of emergency has been declared.

Chilean TV broadcast pictures of traffic jams as people tried to leave.

Officials said the dead included people who were crushed by collapsing walls or died of heart attacks.

Iquique Governor Gonzalo Prieto told local media that in addition to those killed, several people had been seriously injured.

While the government said it had no reports of significant damage to coastal areas, a number of adobe homes were reported destroyed in Arica.

Further damage may not be known until dawn. The tsunami warning in Chile will last at least until 08:00 GMT.

The quake shook modern buildings in Peru and in Bolivia’s high altitude capital of La Paz – more than 470km (290 miles) from Iquique.

At least eight strong aftershocks followed in the few hours after the quake, including a 6.2 tremor.

Downtown looks like a ghost town”

Kurt Hertrampf, Hostel owner, Arica

The Chilean interior ministry told the BBC that one of the main roads outside Iquique was cut off because of hillside debris.

The ministry says that partial landslides have also taken place between the towns of Putre and General Lagos.

The interior minister also told Chilean TV that some 300 women inmates had escaped from a prison in Iquique. The authorities are reported to have deployed a planeload of special forces to guard against looting.

Chilean Interior Minister Rodrigo Penailillo said President Michelle Bachelet was being kept informed. She is to travel to the affected area.

“We have taken action to ensure public order in the case of Iquique, where we’ve had a massive escape of more than 300 female prisoners, so that the armed forces and police can coordinate and provide security to the residents,” he said.

‘A big one’

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (TWC) issued an initial warning for Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Panama.

However, all warnings, watches and alerts were later lifted except for Chile and Peru.

Tsunami watches – in which the danger of tidal waves is deemed to be less serious – had been in place for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras.

“Everyone along our coast should be alert and ready,” Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa said on Twitter.

Ecuador later reduced its alert but maintained a high level of vigilance for the Galapagos Islands.

High waves hit parts of the Chilean coast within 45 minutes of the quake. Pisagua, Patache and Iquique all saw big waves.

“We have asked citizens to evacuate the entire coast,” Chilean home office minister Mahmud Aleuy said.

Evacuations were also ordered in Peru, where waves 2m (6.5ft) above normal forced about 200 people to leave the seaside town of Boca del Rio near the Chilean border, police said.

A British expatriate near the northern Chilean city of Antofagasta told the BBC that there had been several tremors since the last quarter of last year.

“But this earthquake, even with the increased distance, seemed to last a lot longer,” Patrick Moore said.

“I was just sitting on my bed and normally these tremors using last at the very longest about 40 seconds – this one felt like it lasted about two minutes.

“I knew it was bad so I immediately went online to see what had happened and saw a tsunami warning that’s been put in place which confirmed my fears that it was a big one.”

Kurt Hertrampf, a hostel owner in Arica, told the BBC there was a big blackout in the town after the quake and he was surprised the telephone line was still working. He added: “Downtown looks like a ghost town.”

The area close to the epicentre is mineral rich, but none of the major copper companies reported any break in production.

Chile is one of the most seismically active countries in the world.

Central and southern areas of the country were hit by a powerful earthquake of 8.8 magnitude quake followed by a tsunami that devastated scores of towns in February 2010.

In 1960 an area of Chile south of Concepcion was hit by a 9.5 magnitude which caused about 1,655 deaths and a tsunami in Hawaii and Japan.

The 9.0 magnitude quake that struck Japan on 11 March 2011 caused a devastating tsunami and left more than 15,000 people dead, with more than 3,200 missing.
