ASSIUT, Egypt (AP) -- Thousands of Egyptians and some foreigners have been flocking to this southern Egyptian city in recent weeks where residents say they've seen an apparition of the Virgin Mary and a flock of exceptionally large, white pigeons in an inexplicable shining light.

In the Assiut University Hospital Burns Unit in Egypt we have observed a growing number of burn cases referred from the cement factory, with a trend that is higher than in any other factory within the Assiut Governorate.
As stated by the Occupational Security Officer at Assiut Cement Factory, burn injury due to clinker or cement occurs as a result of the explosion of hot cement powder (at a temperature of about 1500 'C).
Such explosions occur when there is forced air and water in the narrow tube to remove the blocking of powder during the passage of cement in the rotatory kiln.

 Najia writes about Assuite for the Gilded Serpent
Some of the handmade Assiut fabrics have survived to revel in a subsequent reincarnation as fabric for use in decorating Belly dance costuming in a new and quite different millennium.
The newer pieces have less weight because they contain less silver or gold knots to form the designs and the designs are more sparse and to my taste, weaker.  The knotting technique is laborious and time consuming, and the silver and gold flat tapes are heavy and difficult to obtain.
The first and foremost caveat is to keep Assiut cloth and other vintage fabrics clean and the second is to repair them promptly with 100% cotton thread if they meet with any unfortunate snags.
