  • The Weeknd is helping University of Toronto resurrect a lost Ethiopian language

    University of Toronto launches a course in 2,000-year-old Ge’ez, part of its Ethiopian studies program—aided by a star

    Along with Greek, Hebrew and Arabic, Ethiopia’s Ge’ez is considered one of the world’s oldest Semitic languages—but you’ve probably never heard of it.
    Michael Gervers, a professor in the department of historical and cultural studies at the University of Toronto, believes it’s important to resurrect it. “The entire history of Ethiopia is in this language,” he says. “Everything written up until 1850 was written in Ge’ez, so we have 2,000 years of textual material that people don’t have access to.” It was replaced by Amharic as Ethiopia’s official language.

    In 2015, Gervers started a fund to create an Ethiopian studies program at U of T, setting a goal of $200,000 and donating $50,000 of his own money. The dean’s office matched that donation; and this year, so did Abel Tesfaye—the Toronto-born, Grammy-winning R&B singer professionally known as The Weeknd, whose parents immigrated to Canada from Ethiopia in the 1980s.

    Tesfaye promoted the cause to his more than four million Twitter followers. “Sharing our brilliant and ancient history of Ethiopia. Proud to support the studies in our homie town through @UofT and @bikilaaward,” he wrote.

  • top 6 sign of kidney failure

    While we become more concerned about the most talked about lifestyle induced conditions like hypertension, blood pressure, diabetes, we often forget that our vital organs also need equal care and attention. Some of the signs of organ failure are so subtle that you never know you were suffering from something grave until you reach a point from where there is no turning back. The story is the same with your kidneys too. This is one reason kidney failure is usually detected very late. However, your body sends you warning signals much before, only if you pay heed to the same. Here are some early signs of kidney failure: 1.

    1urinary tract infection

    . The first sign of kidney failure is problems with your urine pattern or urination. The early signs of kidney malfunction might start with frequent urination at night, increase or decrease in urine output, dark coloured urine, an urge to urinate without being able to do so. And you can gradually suffer from painful urination indicating a urinary tract infection , foamy urine (due to protein leakage), stains of blood in urine. If you notice any of these signs, it is worrisome for your kidneys.

    2. swelling or edema

    One of the most crucial functions of the kidneys is to flush out toxins and impurities and keep your system clean. However, when the arteries and capillaries in your kidneys get damaged this hinders the process of excretion of wastes. Then there is a build up of excess water and salt in the body which gets deposited in different parts of the body which leads to puffiness or swelling usually seen in the feet, hands and under the eyes.

    3. Itchy and dry skin 

    Since the kidneys help to flush out toxins from the body, this keeps the red blood cells healthy and maintain the right nutrient and mineral balance in the. When there is an imbalance of minerals and nutrients and more wastes in the blood it can cause dry and itchy skin. This is often confused with skin allergy or rashes. However, if you notice the other symptoms of kidney disease like the frequent urge to urinate, edema along with this symptom it’s time to go to the doctor and get checked.

    4.  Lack of appetite

    There are no initial symptoms of kidney failure so when they start to deteriorate the first thing that happens to your body is an overload of toxins and wastes build-up. This is what gives rise to a variety of signs and symptoms, and lack of appetite is one of them. In fact, this is one of the most common symptoms of kidney failure.

    5. Extreme farique

    When kidneys cease to function, they stop secreting a very important hormone called erythroprotien which helps in the production of red blood cells. These red blood cells help to supply oxygen and nutrient to every part of the body to sustain your energy levels and provide with nutrition. But due to kidney failure when there is less production of red blood cells, this could lead to a drop in haemoglobin levels and result in anaemia. Of the other problems that can arise due to anaemia, extreme fatigue could be one of them. However, most often this important sign is ignored and mistaken to general tiredness. As your kidneys keep deteriorating it could also lead to muscle cramping and pain.

    6. Nausea and vomiting:

    All these toxic build-ups can lead to nausea and vomiting which is another symptom which is highly ignored.

  • Ethiopian dam study contracts to be signed by Egyptian foreign ministry

    The contracts with two consulting firms to carry out technical studies into the impact of Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam will be signed on 5 and 6 September, Egypt's foreign ministry said on Tuesday. In a meeting with reporters, Ahmed Abu Zeid said that the irrigation ministers of Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia will attend the contract signing in Sudan. The three countries agreed in 2015 that two French firms, Artelia and BRL, would carry out technical studies into the impact of the hydroelectric dam, set to be Africa's largest when completed next year. Negotiations have been ongoing since 2011, when Egypt raised concerns that the dam, located in the Ethiopian highlands on the Blue Nile, could impact its share of Nile water. Since 2015, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Sudan, which is also downstream from the project, have been negotiating the terms of the two consultancy firms' contracts and the purview of the technical studies they will prepare. President El-Sisi has adopted a positive tone on the dam and on Ethiopian relations in general, stressing that Egyptians have nothing to fear from the project. Speaking to Egyptian media this week, he said that the negotiations on the technical studies were progressing in a way that is “reassuring to all.” “The Nile water will continue to flow to Egypt and to everyone else,” he said. “Egypt has started a new era in developing its relations with African countries, especially Nile Basin countries.” In his Tuesday statement, Abu Zeid said that Egyptian-Ethiopian relations are witnessing a new phase based on common interests, avoiding any damage to any party, as well as the development of strategic relations between Egypt and Sudan, Ethiopia. A trilateral Declaration of Principles, signed by all three states last year, gives priority to downstream countries for electricity generated by the dam and providing compensation for any damages caused.
