An artificially inseminated giant panda took U.S. zoo officials by surprise on Saturday when she gave birth to twins - more than four hours apart. Mei Xiang, a star tourist draw in Washington's National Zoo, gave birth to her first cub at 5.34 p.m. after her water broke about an hour beforehand, zoo officials said. “All of us are thrilled that Mei Xiang has given birth," said zoo director Dennis Kelly in a statement before the second cub had arrived. "The cub is vulnerable at this tiny size but we know Mei is an excellent mother." Kelly told a news conference zoo officials were being cautious and "keeping their fingers crossed" after the zoo lost a six-day-old cub in 2012. More»

These one-percenters really made the most of their youth. A roll call of billionaires under 35 complied by Wealth-X is dominated by male "technopreneurs" and features more than one college dropout. A familiar face takes the top spot: Facebook's (FB, Tech30) Mark Zuckerberg, whose $41.6 billion net worth far outstrips the rest on the list. The social networking site helped create massive fortunes for two others in the top five, Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin. The pair, worth $9.3 billion and $5.3 billion respectively, co-founded Facebook with Zuckerberg, before pursuing other tech ventures. More»

An Egyptologist who believes Queen Nefertiti's crypt may be hidden behind King Tutankhamun's 3,300-year-old tomb in the famed Valley of the Kings has been invited to Cairo to defend his theory, Egypt's Antiquities Ministry said Wednesday. The theory by British Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves, while gaining a lot of attention online in recent weeks, has yet to be reviewed by peers. However, it could offer a compelling new theory into a turbulent period of ancient Egyptian history that fascinates both experts and hobbyists around the world. The ministry said Reeves will have the opportunity to discuss his theory with Egyptian experts in September. A joint expedition to Luxor, where the King Tut's tomb is located, could be on the agenda, the ministry said. Reeves did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Reeves argues that Tut, who died at the age of 19, may have been rushed into an outer chamber of what was originally the tomb of Nefertiti, which has never been found. He claims high-resolution images of King Tut's tomb include lines underneath plastered surfaces of painted walls, showing there could be two unexplored doorways, one of which leading potentially to Nefertiti's tomb. He also argues that the design of King Tut's tomb suggests it was built for a queen, rather than a king. Aidan Dodson, an Egyptologist at the University of Bristol, is skeptical of parts of Reeves' theory. "The possibility that there are hidden chambers behind those walls is a reasonable suggestion, but it's the jump to Nefertiti (being) behind the door that I would find somehow problematic," Dodson said. "There's absolutely no example of anyone ever doing that to a tomb." John Darnell, a professor of Egyptology at Yale University, also said it would be "nicely surprising" if Nefertiti's tomb lay in a hidden passage behind Tut's tomb. British archeologist Howard Carter discovered Tut's tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922 and was "meticulous" in documenting what he found, Darnell said. "I would be very surprised if Carter missed an additional chamber, but again, you always have to question what you think you know; and it's a very intriguing possibility," Darnell said, adding that he supported Reeves' research efforts. Already, there's a mummy at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo that has strong DNA evidence of being Tut's mother. DNA testing also has provided strong evidence suggesting that Tut's father likely was the Pharaoh Akhenaten, the first pharaoh to try switching Egypt to monotheism. The testing also brought a new discovery: that Tut's mother was Akhenaten's sister. Still, some archaeologists like Dodson believe the two were probably cousins and that this DNA result could be the product of three generations of marriages between first cousins — and that Nefertiti, Akhenaten's chief wife, may in fact have been Tut's mother. Many Egyptologists believe there were probably one or two co-pharaohs between Akhenaten and Tutankhamun. Many believe at least one of them may have been Nefertiti. And by finding her tomb, that could provide further insight into a period still largely obscured despite so much interest worldwide in ancient Egypt. "Finding a presumably intact tomb (of any previous ruler) would provide extremely important information," said Willeke Wendrich, a professor of Egyptian archaeology at UCLA. More»

Founded by a group of medical students hailing from Cairo University, a new non-profit organisation known as “Patient Support Team” (PST) is bringing the magic of Harry Potter and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft to Cairo in aid of Abo El-Reesh children’s hospital. On Saturday 29 August, the day-long Harry Potter Festival – under the hashtag “#halfbloodsphinx” – will bring all the wonders of J K Rowling’s world-famous novels to Rafaheya in Giza. Namely, the event will offer participants a chance to play the infamous quidditch game, indulge in legions of thematic food and drink and satisfy all their Harry Potter merchandise needs in the shopping bazaar. The group behind the festival, PST, are passionate about creating various initiatives to raise money for the Abo El-Reesh children’s hospital – a university hospital based in Munira. Funds raised through events such as the Harry Potter Festival will go towards providing resources and support for public and university hospitals – many of which rely on medical students – allowing them to provide better service for poorer patients. As well as raising money through events, PST allows people to “adopt” a medical case by sponsoring an individual’s treatment. This gives donators total certainty of where their money is being spent. There is increasing concern about the state of Egypt’s healthcare system, including paediatric services. Earlier this year, shocking images showing unhygienic and deprived conditions in hospitals from all over Egypt surfaced on social media. However, there have been a series of recent initiatives to provide better quality, free healthcare to Egyptians. For example, recently, Egypt established the first free breast cancer hospital in the region, which provides treatment and diagnostic services for women, as well as psychiatric help. Egypt is also home to the renowned 57357 Children’s Cancer hospital, which provides free cancer treatment to children, and was awarded the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) award for development.

J.K. Rowling uses her Twitter account to spread both news about the world of Harry Potter and good sense.  That's what she was doing when she sent "big hugs" to a young female writer in Egypt Saturday who had Tweeted her, "You inspired me to write. However, in Egypt, girls can't do anything freely as boys. They laugh at me when I say I am a writer." More»

US entertainment giant Disney was forced to apologise after one of its Japanese language tweets was criticised for being insensitive as the country commemorated the 70th anniversary of the Nagasaki atomic bombing. The company's Japanese unit, referencing the animated film "Alice in Wonderland", took to social media on Sunday with a message about the movie's well-known "unbirthdays". The original English tweet wished followers a "very merry unbirthday". In Disney's original film, characters celebrate an "unbirthday" -- every day of the year except their own birthday -- during a party with Alice. More»

As the government promoted the new Suez Canal as "Egypt's gift to the world," Marwa El-Selehdar, the country's first and youngest female shipmaster, received the good news. The 24-year-old would assist in navigating a naval vessel through the new waterway during the opening celebrations on 6 August, she was recently informed. “I never thought that my dream would finally come true. I am going to be part of the inauguration as a second naval officer on the deck of the training ship AIDA IV," El Selhdar told Al-Ahram newspaper. El-Selehdar believes that her participation as the youngest and first Egyptian and Arab female shipmaster would bolster the image of the "civilised Egyptian women." More»

There's a full moon coming tonight that is unlike anything we've seen since 2012 and won't see again until early 2018 — it's called a blue moon. Despite the name, the color of the moon will not change. This full moon is special because it's the second one to occur this month — that's what a "blue moon" is. The first full moon happened on July 2. The chances of seeing two full moons within the same month is a rare phenomenon that only takes place about once every 2 1/2 years. The next blue moon won't come until January 2, 2018. More»

Nasa’s New Horizons spacecraft has made contact with Earth, confirming its successful flypast of Pluto, after a journey to the far reaches of the solar system that has taken nine-and-a-half years and 3 billion miles (4.88bn km). At precisely 8.52.37pm Eastern US time, the probe “phoned home” to mission control in Maryland, 13 hours after it flew within 7,750 miles (12,472km) of Pluto. Scientists greeted the news of its safe passage with cheers and tears, calling it a historic day for space exploration. More»
