The first phase of a multi-million-euro makeover of Rome's Colosseum was completed Friday with Prime Minister Matteo Renzi pledging cash would be made available to spruce up other crumbling historic sites. In a project largely funded by fashion and shoewear group Tod's, the amphitheatre where gladiators once jousted with lions has been water-sprayed to remove centuries of encrusted dirt and grime. Works to strengthen the arched structures of the northern and southern facades and replace metal gates and barriers in the ground level arches have also been completed. Tod's, whose billionaire owner Diego Della Valle reportedly put up 25 million euros for the works, said it was proud to have been part of the restoration of "a true historical symbol of Italy." The Colosseum is the latest in a string of famous Italian monuments to have been renovated with funds from private donors, often from the luxury sector. Roman fashion house Fendi paid for a 16-month clean-up of the Trevi fountain which has been acclaimed by visitors. And upmarket jeweller Bulgari is behind the ongoing renovation of the Spanish steps, also located in the capital's historic centre. But across the country there are many historic sites which have fallen into disrepair due to a lack of funds, most notably the ancient archaelogical site of Pompeii. Renzi vowed that would not continue. "We have to stop the arguments over Italy's cultural heritage because it is not only the thing we can be most proud of and a major part of our identity, but it also has enormous potential," he said. "The time of complaining there is no money for culture is over. Public and private, the resources are there." Renzi's government has promised 18 million euros ($20 million) for a second phase of renovation of the Colosseum which will involve rebuilding the arena floor and make it capable of hosting concerts and other cultural events, including re-enactments of some of the kind of shows the ancient Romans enjoyed. The floor was removed by excavators in the late 19th century while the bits of the exterior structure that are missing were mostly removed for other construction projects in the city, including the underground.

A special committee assigned by the National Council for Women has released its first of two reports evaluating the portrayal of women in this year’s Ramadan television series. Headed by Suzane El-Qeleiny, the committee stems from the media branch of the the National Council for Women, and works in cooperation with students of Ain Shams University’s Faculty of Media. The committee is tasked with surveying the image of women in this year's Ramadan series through analysing the content of the different productions and producing two reports during the course of the month. The mid-month report states that, “The dancer, the call girl, the psychologically ill, the divorcee who steals another woman’s husband, and the working woman who is unsuccessful in her family life are the most notable portrayals of women in the 2016 Ramadan series.” More»

This year's Ramadan will be the last one to begin in the summer season until 2041, the Astronomy Association (AA) in Jeddah announced in a statement. The Saudi AA lists 1 June as the start of summer season using the meteorological calendar as opposed to the traditional astronomical system in which summer starts on 21 June. Each year Ramadan begins 11 days earlier than the year before due to the difference between the Muslim Hijri lunar calendar and the Gregorian solar calendar. The lunar year consists of 12 months, each varying between 29 and 30 days, making up a 355 or 354 days in a year – hence the 11-day difference with the solar calendar year. More»

Anton Yelchin, who was best known for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek films, has been killed by his own car at his home in Los Angeles, police say. It struck him after rolling backwards down the steep drive at his Studio City home, pinning him against a brick postbox pillar and a security fence. He died shortly after 01:00 (08:00 GMT) on Sunday. JJ Abrams, who directed Yelchin in the first two Star Trek films, paid tribute on Twitter saying he was "brilliant". More»

Egyptian satirist Bassem Youssef appeared in a video released by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Thursday seeking increased support for refugees. The video shows more than 60 influential figures from around the world asking people to sign a petition calling on governments to take several steps to help the forcibly displaced. The participants deliver the same message: “We stand together with refugees. Please stand with us.” Youssef expressed pride at his participation in the campaign, stressing that it is instrumental in helping the forcibly displaced. He highlighted the scale of the current refugee crisis, with huge numbers of people travelling from the Arab world in search of both survival and a new start in life. “[These people] have the right to be given a chance and to be treated with justice and equality, which everyone needs,” he said.

Queen Elizabeth II and her family marked her official 90th birthday Saturday with a parade, a colorful military ceremony and an appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony. It was a day for continuity, patriotism and pride. Flag-waving throngs crowded into the spacious Mall in front of the palace to honor the longest reigning monarch in British history. Prince William and his wife Kate's daughter, Princess Charlotte, age 1, delighted the crowd by making her first appearance on the balcony, standing alongside the queen and her husband, Prince Philip, who turned 95 on Friday. The queen, wearing a lime green outfit visible from the far points of the crowded Mall, traveled by horse-drawn carriage, sometimes waving to the throng. More»

Tributes have poured in from across the world for boxing legend Muhammad Ali, who has died at the age of 74. "Muhammad Ali shook up the world. And the world is better for it," said US President Barack Obama. The three-time world heavyweight champion - one of the world's greatest sporting figures - died on Friday night at a hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. He died from "septic shock due to unspecified natural causes", said a spokesman for the Ali family. The boxer had been suffering from a respiratory illness, a condition that was complicated by Parkinson's disease. "I am happy my father no longer struggles. He is in a better place. God is the greatest," his daughter Maryum said on Saturday. More»

Former world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, whose record-setting boxing career, unprecedented flair for showmanship, and controversial stands made him one of the best-known figures of the 20th century, died on Friday aged 74. Ali's death was confirmed in a statement issued by family spokesman Bob Gunnell late Friday evening, a day after he was admitted to a Phoenix-area hospital with a respiratory ailment. The cause of death or the name of the hospital where he died were not immediately disclosed. Ali had long suffered from Parkinson's syndrome, which impaired his speech and made the once-graceful athlete almost a prisoner in his own body. Even so, Ali's youthful proclamation of himself as "the greatest" rang true until the end for the millions of people worldwide who admired him for his courage both inside and outside the ring. "A part of me slipped away, the greatest piece," George Foreman, a former heavyweight boxer and one of Ali's most formidable opponents in the ring, said on Twitter after the news of Ali's death. Roy Jones Jr., a former champion boxer who grew up during Ali's prime, also said in a Tweet: "My heart is deeply saddened yet both appreciative and relieved that the greatest is now resting in the greatest place." Few could argue with his athletic prowess at his peak in the 1960s. With his dancing feet and quick fists, he could - as he put it - float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. He was the first person to win the heavyweight championship three times. But Ali became much more than a colorful and interesting athlete. He spoke boldly against racism in the '60s, as well as the Vietnam War. During and after his championship reign, Ali met scores of world leaders and for a time he was considered the most recognizable person on earth, known even in remote villages far from the United States. Ali's diagnosis of Parkinson's came about three years after he retired from boxing in 1981. His influence extended far beyond boxing. He became the unofficial spokesman for millions of blacks and oppressed people around the world because of his refusal to compromise his opinions and stand up to white authorities. In a realm where athletes often battle inarticulateness as well as their opponents, Ali was known as the Louisville Lip and loved to talk, especially about himself. "Humble people, I've found, don't get very far," he once told a reporter. His taunts could be brutal. "Joe Frazier is so ugly that when he cries, the tears turn around and go down the back of his head," he once said. He also dubbed Frazier a 'gorilla' but later apologized and said it was all to promote the fight. Once asked about his preferred legacy, Ali said: "I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him ... who stood up for his beliefs ... who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love. "And if all that's too much, then I guess I'd settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people. And I wouldn't even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was." Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on Jan. 17, 1942, as Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., a name shared with a 19th century slavery abolitionist. He changed his name after his conversion to Islam. Ali is survived by his wife, the former Lonnie Williams, who knew him when she was a child in Louisville, along with his nine children. More»

Political satirist Bassem Youssef’s new promotional video for his upcoming show went viral on social media Tuesday. The three-minute clip entitled “Breath Easy” mocks American Islamophobia. The Democracy Handbook, Youssef’s new web series, will be aired for the first time on 7 July, according to Youssef’s official Facebook. “After more than two months of shooting, [the show] is done and ready to air. We also shot a couple of sketches last March directed at the problem of Islamophobia but in a satirical way,” a Sunday statement said. Youssef, who is often referred to as the “Jon Stewart of the Middle East”, left Egypt shortly after his show on MBC was shutdown in June 2014, after it came under fire for airing ”sensitive” content. This is despite the fact that Youssef had been running  “Al-Bernameg” for two previous seasons. More»
