Ancient Egyptian Royal Statues Unearthed In Cairo Slum

Archaeologists from Egypt and Germany discovered a massive 26ft (8 metre) statue submerged in ground water in a Cairo slum which could depict one of history’s most famous rulers, Pharaoh Ramses II.

Archaeologists in a Cairo suburb – once the site of the ancient capital of Heliopolis – found two 3000-year-old pharaonic statues.

The statues are thought to represent Pharaohs from the 19th dynasty.

One statue stands 26ft (8 metres) tall and is carved out of quartzite – a tough stone composed mainly of quartz.

It could not be identified from its engravings but it was found at the entrance to the temple of King Ramses II – also known as Ramses the Great – suggesting it represents him.

The other relic is a limestone statue of 12th century BC ruler King Seti II [Ramses II’s grandson]. DailyMail

Middlebury Professor Criticizes Students, Defends Free Speech

An event at Middlebury College in Vermont where Dr. Charles Murray gave a speech was disrupted by leftist protesters. The students felt compelled to disrupt Murray’s speech, rationalized the use of violence against ideas they did not agree with, and in an alternate paper claim to be “victims”.

President of Middlebury College:

Today our community begins the process of addressing the deep and troubling divisions that were on display last night. I am grateful to those who share this goal and have offered to help. We must find a path to establishing a climate of open discourse as a core Middlebury value, while also recognizing critical matters of race, inclusion, class, sexual and gender identity, and the other factors that too often divide us. That work will take time, and I will have more to say about that in the days ahead.
