CAIRO — Radar scans of King Tut’s tomb have revealed two empty spaces on the north and east chambers of the pharaonic mausoleum, Egypt’s antiquities ministry said Thursday.
King Tutankhamun, often dubbed the boy king, was an Egyptian pharaoh who rose to power in 1333 B.C., at the tender age of 10. His mother was Queen Nefertiti, and his father was Akhenaten.
One prominent Egyptologist has theorized that Queen Nefertiti could be buried in the walls of the 3,300-year-old pharaonic mausoleum.
House Republicans advanced a fiscal 2017 budget resolution out of a key panel late Wednesday, over the objections of conservatives who will likely make it impossible to pass the measure on the House floor.The House Budget Committee debated the resolution all day and into the night, considering dozens of amendments and ultimately voting 20-16 to send the bill to the House floor.This budget shows a commitment to doing what is right, what is responsible to ensure a brighter future for all Americans, said House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price, R-Ga.House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., who is eager for the House to endorse a spending blueprint, praised the Budget Committee action, even though it does not guarantee the measure will ever pass the full House.I commend Chairman Price for passing a responsible, conservative budget that cuts the deficit by $7 trillion and balances within a decade—all without raising taxes, Ryan said in a statement. This blueprint also repeals Obamacare, shrinks the EPA, improves Medicare and Medicaid, strengthens our military, and calls for tax reform. It represents our vision for a smaller government and healthier economy, and it’s a document that can make all conservatives proud.
The modern St. Patrick’s Day celebrations that will take place on Thursday, at least in the United States, will likely be characterized by commercial lucky charms and green beer—all of which has very little to do with the historical figure of the saint. As it turns out, it took centuries for the holiday to accrue the elements that now seem crucial to its celebrations.
Legend says St. Patrick was actually born Maewyn Succat, but that he changed his name to Patricius (or Patrick), which derives from the Latin term for “father figure,” after he became a priest. And that supposed luck of his is the root of all the themed merchandise for modern St. Patrick’s Day.
