Egyptian public media & private media have different versions.
State news agencies and private news agencies seem to disagree on who is responsible for the violent events of the last three days in Egypt.
The clashes began on Friday when the police officers tried to disperse a small protest against the transitional government. After this event, thousands of protesters reacted strongly.
On the one hand, according to the official agencies, some people from inside the riots killed the protesters. On the other hand, media that are not affiliated with the government suggest that the army and the police attacked and killed civilians.
All this has happened while this African country undergoes elections to decide who is going to replace former president Mubarak.
Many people talk about being healthy, but few can tell you what a healthy plate looks like.
Everybody talks about healthy food, but some people have misconceptions about what is healthy and what is unhealthy.
For example, people say that ice cream is a very unhealthy food. The truth is that ice cream is unhealthy only if you eat too much of it, or in very especial cases.
Fruits and vegetables are very healthy, but your body also needs other foods. A healthy meal includes fruits, vegetables, grains (wheat, rice, oatmeal), protein (meat, pork, chicken, and beans), and dairy products (milk, cheese, and yogurt).
All of them are healthy; just remember not to eat too much.

The world population recently reached 7 billion, and the number keeps growing.
We are now more than seven billion people sharing this planet. The earth now has twice more inhabitants than what it used to have only fifty years ago. By December 1971, forty years ago, we were less than 4 billion, and around three hundred thousand babies were born everyday.
Now that we have reached this astronomic number, the toll of births is not much higher (no more than 400,000 per day). However, the real question is not about how many people are born everyday, or how many die. The real question has to do with the challenges and opportunities that this number represents.
In countries like China, almost two thousand people are born every minute, and almost one thousand die in the same period of time.
