About "#Cyborgs" of #Donetskairport: "They survived, concrete did not survive." This definition best illustrates the victory of the defenders of #Mariupol. 🇷🇺 almost wiped out the city of half a million people, but 🇷🇺 does not have the weapons to break their spirits.

One of these heroes is a very young commander of the #Azov's squadron, Lev Pashko. He came to Azov in 2017, when he was eighteen, and the young man chose the nickname "#Horus" - the name of the ancient #Egyptian god of hunting, sky and war.

The Biden administration is set to deny $130 million of military aid to #Egypt over human rights concerns. The same administration earlier this week approved arms sales to Egypt for a combined value of more than $2.5 billion reuters.com/world/biden-ad…
This is exactly why so many of us have said over and over that U.S, foreign policy is fucked up, regardless of whether a Democrat or a Republican is in the White House, and why so many of us said as abhorrent as Trump was, he was not an aberration.
- Trump called Sisi “my favourite dictator.”
- Biden, 10 yrs ago during #Jan25 Revolution when he was Obama’s VP wouldn’t call Mubarak, our dictator of 30yrs, a dictator.
- 5 US presidents propped up Mubarak

Disgraceful: #Egyptian court has upheld prison sentence against Amal Fathy, a woman human rights defender convicted over a video she posted online criticizing the Egyptian authorities for failing to tackle sexual harassment. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
Misogyny is the beating heart of authoritarianism. That is why Amal Fathy is being punished for exposing sexual violence.

When you punish women who expose sexual violence, what other message are you sending out other than patriarchy enables and protects misogyny? #Egypt

A decade after people across the region took to the streets to remove authoritarian leaders, a zealous determination to control female sexuality continues to hurt women and girls in Egypt: feministgiant.com/p/egypts-sexua…

جرى تحوير كلمات أغنية #بنت_الجيران المعروفة بمطلعها «#سكر_محلي محطوط على كريمة» حتّى تصبح ملائمة لتقديمها داخل #السعودية.

أطلق كتاب الناشط السياسي المصري #علاء_عبد_الفتاح أمس الثلاثاء وبغياب علاء، في مكتبة برزخ في الحمرا. الكتاب المعنون «لم تُهزَموا بعد»- وهي عبارة كتبها علاء في العام 2017 من داخل سجن طرّة المصري، صدر أواخر الشهر الفائت وفيه مجموعة من مقالات علاء التي كتبها منذ #ثورة_يناير 2011.
./1
وقد أبدى القيّمون على النشاط، وهم من أصدقاء علاء، قلقهم على وضعه الجسديّ والنفسيّ بسبب ظروف السجن، لا سيّما وأنّه «حُرِم من حقّ الحصول على الكتب، ومعرفة الوقت، وممارسة النشاط الجسدي».

يُذكَر أنّ المحكمة المصرية قد أدرجت علاء، في 18 تشرين الثاني، على قوائم الإرهابيّين لمدّة خمس سنوات، رافضةً الطعن الذي كان قد تقدّم به. وقد قضى علاء حتّى اليوم أكثر من سبع سنوات في سجون عبد الفتاح #السيسي بتهمٍ ملفّقة.

#RomanSiteSaturday - Pyramid of Cestius 🏛️

(1/9) Located in #Rome, the Pyramid of Cestius is one of the best preserved classical buildings in the city. Moreover, as an imitation of an #Egyptian pyramid, it is also one of the most unique.

#Classics #Roman #Archaeology #History
(2/9) Built between 18 - 12 BCE, the pyramid was constructed as a tomb for Gaius Cestius. Cestius had served as a praetor, tribune of the plebs, and was a member of the Septemviri Epulorum, one of the four great religious corporations of the city.
(3/9) Stylistically, it appears to imitate the pointed pyramids of Nubia, particularly in the ancient Kingdom of Meroë. In 23 BCE, Rome attacked this kingdom, leading scholars to postulate that Cestius may have served in this campaign and been inspired by Nubian architecture.

The mudbrick enclosure in this view really is the early #Egyptian #hieroglyph for 'enclosure' (sign 'o1' of the first dynasties)!

Aerial photograph of the recently excavated New Kingdom settlement remains in Western Thebes by @TourismandAntiq #Egypt #archaeology
The enclosure hieroglyph appears on early seal impressions from the 1st and 2nd #Egyptian Dynasties closing goods directed to the mortuary cult of the king (tomb of Peribsen, Abydos ~2800BC) - see the sign in the middle.

For clarity; a drawing of the same seal on a different clay stopper (tomb of Peribsen, Abydos ~2800BC). The sealings were attached to wine jars or large bags destined to provide the king with eternal food and drinks.

In this thread 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼students @MQLinguistics @Macquarie_Uni share what they've learned so far (1st quarter of semester)

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

There is no liberation without queer, gender, and sexual liberation.
