Ananda (Photographer: Sam)Bien que ceux-ci ne remettent pas en cause les recommandations de prudence bien connues, un nombre grandissant de scientifiques et de professionnels nous appellent à jeter un regard différent sur le sida. L’histoire révisée de la « découverte » du VIH ressemble à un roman policier et de nombreux aspects du problème semblent malheureusement être trop guidés par des intérêts financiers inacceptables et dangereux. Un sujet difficile mais que l’on ne devrait pas occulter.

Maia and Thutankamon (Photographer: web)Pierre Veillat shared with us in Svedam some facts and interesting stories about French archaeological mission of Bubasteïon, Saqqara in Egypt where in 70ies they discovered five exceptional tombs of the new empire. In contemporary papyrus documents the area was known as the Bubasteion, or cult-place of the cat goddess Bastet. But Alain Zivie French archeologist realised that originally these galleries had been made as tombs for the high officials of New Kingdom Memphis.

Two of these tombs date to the Old Kingdom, the others range in date from the reign of Hatshepsut to that of Merenptah. Read more
