Saudi students given four weeks to leave Canada

  Saudi students given four weeks to leave Canada MONTREAL - Saudi students in Canadian universities have been given four weeks to pack their bags and leave the country, two senior university officials said Tuesday. Universities across the country were scrambling to get information after Saudi Arabia suspended scholarships to Canada and planned to relocate its students already here. University of Toronto vice-provost Joseph Wong said Saudi students have received notification telling them they have a month to finish their studies and leave Canada."I understand this is what is being circulated to students," Wong told The Canadian Press.

What will happen to Saudi students enrolled in Canada?

  What will happen to Saudi students enrolled in Canada? Universities and colleges are scrambling to help thousands of international students following Saudi Arabia's decision to pull those on Saudi-funded scholarships from Canadian schools. There were 8,310 Saudi students enrolled in Canadian post-secondary schools from January to May 2018, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada's website. From highest to lowest: 4,500 were enrolled in Ontario schools, 1,645 in British Columbia, 835 in Nova Scotia, 435 in Quebec, 395 in Saskatchewan, 245 in Alberta, 90 in New Brunswick, 70 in Manitoba, 60 in P.E.I. and 35 in Newfoundland.

The undergraduate students, who built the vehicle as part of their graduation project from Helwan University just outside Cairo, are rolling out a prototype one-person vehicle that runs on compressed oxygen.

The go-kart-like vehicle comes as Egypt pushes ahead with painful economic reforms that include deep cuts to energy subsidies, measures tied to a three-year $12 billion IMF loan program it began in late 2016.

The students say their vehicle can hit 40 kilometers an hour and last 30 kilometers before needing to be refueled, and it only costs about 18,000 Egyptian pounds ($1,008.40) to build.

"The operational cost of the vehicle... will be almost nothing. You are basically using compressed air. You are not paying for fuel and also you do not need cooling," said Mahmoud Yasser, a student who helped design it.

The team is now looking to raise funding to expand the project and mass produce the vehicles. They believe they can eventually get the vehicles to top 100 kilometers an hour and run for 100 kilometers before needing to come up for air.

Ancient Egyptians Mastered Mummification Long Before The Time Of Pharaohs .
The earliest mummies are typically associated with the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, but as an intensive examination of a 5,600-year-old mummy confirms, the methods used for this iconic funeral practice date back to well before the age of pharaohs. The practice of mummification and the techniques used for embalming (such as the use of resins) were thought to have originated in ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom (also known as the “Pyramid Age”) around 2500 BC.
