Nagel noted that nomadic early North Africans buried their dead in sandy pits. Nagel also suspects that the pots included important food, indicating that the early North Africans might have believed that death was not the end. Over the centuries, early Egyptians took note of their ancestors’ methods and saw how drying out bodies can help preserve them. The early burials and mummies were as cryptic to the ancient Egyptians thousands of years ago as they are to archeologists today. "[The ancient Egyptians] also probably have found our ancestors in pits 2,000 years later, and they were probably also wondering, ‘What did the people do then?’," Nagel said.

Their leaves contain soluble fibre, which is abundant in fenugreek seeds. Among these, numerous clinical studies have shown that fenugreek seeds help alleviate the majority of metabolic symptoms linked to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants found in fenugreek seeds are abundant, and they aid in preventing free radicals from harming the body’s cells. They are frequently used as a herbal treatment for colds and sore throats as well, because of their potent antiviral effects. Intestinal glucose concentrations are frequently high in diabetic patients, and an increase in the proteins that carry salt and glucose can raise the risk of hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar.

Zimbabwe is proposing changing the terms of a $3.5 billion compensation deal signed with former White farmers two years ago, after twice missing agreed-to payments. The revised plan was part of Finance Minister Mthuli Ncube budget presented on Thursday at the new Chinese-built Parliament building north of the capital, Harare. According to the original pact, farmers who were evicted from their land two decades ago should have received half the money within the first year, followed by four $437.5 million annual installments.

North Africa is known for stone and rammed earth, the Horn of Africa for stone and mortar, West Africa for mud or adobe, Central Africa for thatch or wood, and Southeast and Southern Africa for stone and thatch or wood. Typical examples are the stone-walled kraals from early Sotho and Tswana settlements in South Africa and Botswana respectively. The Arab and Amazigh (Berber) architecture of Egypt and North Africa significantly impacted African architecture south of the Sahara. Zimbabwean architecture overshadows the great diversity of materials, forms, and purposes of architecture elsewhere on the continent. The architecture of Africa reflects the interaction of environmental factors such as natural resources, climate, and vegetation.

Bruce is one of many Ugandans who have been affected by years of poisoning allegations among government officials, which have created a climate of fear - a fear that has now trickled down into the community. Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango says the police do not poison people and confirmed the poison fear has reached police stations. Poison allegations are investigated if police receive a report and the alleged victim has medical records that validate the allegations, he adds. Ofwono Opondo, executive director of Uganda Media Centre, the government's press office, says: "Uganda government does not kill people, does not poison, does not shoot people. Uganda does not kill people."

Saudi Arabia has blocked Qatari broadcaster BeIN's popular streaming service TOD.tv since the start of the World Cup on Nov. 20, according to a Reuters witness, in a sudden disruption after 10 months of smooth operations. Accessing the TOD.tv page from within Saudi Arabia prompts a page that reads, "Sorry, the requested page is violating the regulations of the ministry of media." TOD.tv sent a message to its subscribers in Saudi Arabia on November 24 saying it was experiencing an outage. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attended the opening ceremony of the first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East. In 2020, the World Trade Organization (WTO) found Saudi Arabia had breached global rules on intellectual property rights by failing to prosecute pirate TV channel beoutQ for piracy of beIN's content.

A Moroccan peacekeeper, severing in the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), was killed Thursday in an attack in the southeast of this African country. The announcement was made Friday by the UN Mission in CAR, without identifying those responsible for the deadly assault. “A blue helmet from the Moroccan contingent of MINUSCA died after an attack at the Obo aerodrome”, said the UN Mission in a press release. The UN mission has opened an investigation to determine the “exact circumstances” of this attack and urged the Central African authorities to spare no effort to identify the perpetrators of this attack to bring them to justice. MINUSCA is deployed in CAR since 2014 and is currently made up of 14,000 Blue Helmets.

Efforts to clear the tracks were interrupted by extortion and violent acts by a community group that demanded contracts. That added to a plethora of issues plaguing Transnet — it’s invoked a force majeure six times in less than two years. The recent assessment of the site indicates the resumption of normal services on the coal line known as the North Corridor that runs from mines to the Richards Bay Coal Terminal, Transnet said. Transport constraints before the latest force majeure were estimated to be costing the mining industry 100 billion rand ($5.6 billion) in revenue, an amount that would have produced an extra 27 billion rand in taxes, Busi Mavuso, the chief executive officer of lobby group Business Leadership South Africa, said in a note last month.

Last month's IMF deal has provided some respite. "Egypt has got a high debt load and arguably it is more vulnerable even than Pakistan in terms of debt payments as a share of revenues," said Renaissance Capital's chief economist Charlie Robertson. "But the difference is, it has been proactive and been quick to go to the IMF," Robertson added, noting Egypt also has strong support from rich Gulf countries. Egypt's IMF negotiations dragged on for seven months and drove its second big devaluation of the year. The central bank continues to allow the pound to weaken incrementally by 0.01 or 0.02 pounds each trading day.

But Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup has provided a moment where many in the Arab world have rallied by Doha and the Saudi team’s win. But despite an attempt by al-Qaida to stir up extremists, the monthlong World Cup in energy-rich Qatar so far has seen unity among the Gulf Arab nations. “We are proud to be here for the first World Cup in an Arabic country,” Morocco coach Walid Regragui said. The Saudi flag itself carries two images that show its complicated place in the wider Arab world. ___AP World Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/world-cup and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

The period of 1894 and 1896 saw a republican-populist coalition dominating the state government and municipal positions to the disenchantment of African Americans. A petition was presented to prominent African Americans with an ultimatum that they receive a response within 12 hours which must be mailed instead of hand-delivered. When the response arrived late, on the next day November 10, the mob staged one of the bloodiest racial violence in the African-American community. Ten African Americans passed away in the heat of the violence with dozens injured and maimed. Hundreds of African Americans had to flee to the swamps and forests to save their lives despite appeals to the federal government to protect them.
