Maltese poem: Mejju gie, May has arrived - a translation by an Arabic speaker



In a previous article, I attempted a translation of the oldest know literary work in Maltese, Il-Cantilena, without looking up any translations, and relying only on my knowledge of Arabic as a native speaker of both classical and a North African dialect (Egyptian). I was largely successful.

More balkanization and monopoly in Canada's mobile phone market



As the CBC is reporting, Mobilicity, a relative newcomer to the mobile market, is decrying the government auctioning off Long Term Evolution (LTE) "spectrum" to the bigger players (Rogers, Bell, and Telus).

This is the continuation of the industry lobbying for more balkanization.

Update on the Egyptian Revolution - 016


Let us recap the regime's dirty tricks, lest we forget.

Every time Mubarak gave a speech, he gave very little concessions, and it is followed by a dirty trick.

The first speech appointed a vice president who is a copy of himself (military career, pro-Israel and pro-USA, loyal to his superior, no flexibility, no leadership qualities). It was followed by the withdrawal on Friday January 28 of all the police forces from the streets. Not only riot police, but security for prisons, museums, banks, government building, borders, ...etc.

Update on the Egyptian Revolution - 015


A quiet day on the streets. Although there are demonstrations, and the protesters are still in Tahrir Square, there were no clashes. The army tried to talk to the protesters and ask them to leave, but they shouted "We will not leave! He [Mubarak] has to leave!" and the army negotiator left.

We are hearing of more support for the revolution from prominent figures and organizations every day.

Update on the Egyptian Revolution - 014


Today was a great turnout for the Day of Departure. Reports estimated 2 million in Cairo, 1.5 million in Alexandria, and many elsewhere.

The demonstrations were peaceful, with pro-Mubarak supporters

Some demonstrators wanted to march to the presidential palace at the end of the day, but there did not seem to be concensus on it, so it did not happen. TV reported that a week ago, there was one tank near the presidential palace, and today, there was 60 of them and barbed wire barricades.

Update on the Egyptian Revolution - 000


This is a background article on the Egyptian revolution of January 25, 2011.

It was originally published on January 27,2001 on Slashdot, and needs to be expanded for details at a later point.

There is a lot of confusion on various forums, and mainstream media coverage in the USA seems not up to par. Europe's coverage is much better, and Canada somewhere in between.

The church bombing on New Year's Eve got more coverage than this history in the making period.
