Posted on Updated on

Ans:

Refresh your concepts about Delegation, Notification, or Observation in iOS

Originally posted on Shine Technologies:

A common problem that we often experience when developing iOS applications, is how to allow communication between our controllers, without the need to have excessive coupling. Three common patterns that appear time and time again throughout iOS applications include:

  1. Delegation
  2. Notification Center, and
  3. Key value observing

So why do we need these patterns and when should and shouldn’t they be used?

Difference between Queen Nefertiti and Queen Nefertiri?

Posted on Updated on

From last two three days, I was noticing this question, circulating over Quora. So I decided to shed some light there.
This confusion is only due to resemblance of names. Nefertiti and Nefertari were different individuals that lived approximately 50 years apart.

Nefertiti

The Chief Royal Wife of Akhenaten‘s full name was Nefer-neferuaten Nefertiti,  which means Beauty [of] beautiful of Aten, The beautiful one[woman]  [is] come’, lived in the 18th Dynasty sometime between 1394 b.c. and  1340 b.c. .Nefertiti is also known for a famous bust of her head, as show below.

Nefertari

The Chief Royal Wife of Ramses II‘s full name was Nefertari-Meri-Mut which means, The most beautiful of all the land, Beloved of Mut, and  lived sometime between 1292 b.c. and 1225 b.c.. Again these dates will vary.

Nefertari had a temple built for her at Abu Simbel. All four great statues at the entrance of this temple are of Ramses II, while Next to the legs of the colossi, there are other statues no higher than the knees of the pharaoh. These depict queen Nefertari.

Hieroglyph In Temple of Abydos

Posted on Updated on

For me, this is really a controversial piece of hieroglyph in the temple of Abydos. Some people (who claim that Egyptians had some contact with aliens) believe that this hieroglyph is real and in original form.

The Abydos-Hieroglyph
Some other says that the carving was altered by the successors of Ramses II (may be Merneptah). It was a common practice among Pharaohs of Egypt to destroy the symbols and glory of their forefathers, in order to showcase themselves. Example is Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el Bahri, where statues and wall paintings were destroyed by her own son.

Who built the great pyramid of Giza?

Posted on Updated on

The Giza Plateau has three main pyramids. The pyramid of Menkaure, the pyramid of Khafre and the great pyramid of Khufu.

As per the today’s widely accepted assumptions, the pyramid of Menkaure was probably completed in the 26th century BC. Pyramid of Khafre was built during the reign of Khafre who ruled from 2558 to 2532 BC. The great pyramid of Khufu was built during 2580-2560 BC.

Is Sphinx several millennia older than we think it to be?

Posted on Updated on

Many Egyptologist (including Dr. Zahi Hawas, former Minister of State for Antiquities Affairs) insist that Sphinx was built nearly 4500BC, by the builder of 2nd pyramid of the Giza Plateau .i.e. the pyramid of Chephren (also read as Khafre, Khefren and Chephren).

But other researchers like John A. West and Robert Bauval (who first put forwarded the “Orion correlation theory”) believe that the both pyramids & Sphinx are much much older then Egypt civilization. Here I’m summarizing some extracts from their research paper where they are trying to prove that Sphinx is atleast 10 millennium BC old.

What do you think of these Egyptian hieroglyphics?

Posted on Updated on

Answer by Aasim Naseem Siddiqui:

Well .. this is really a controversial piece of hieroglyph in the temple of
Abydos. Some people (who claim that Egyptians had some contact with aliens) believe that this hieroglyph is real and in original form.

Some other says that the carving was altered by the successors of Ramses II (may be Merneptah). It was a common practice among Pharaohs of Egypt to destroy the symbols and glory of their forefathers, in order to showcase themselves. Example is Hatshepsut’s temple at Deir el Bahri, where statues and wall paintings were destroyed by her own son.

The temple of Abydos was build by Seti-I and finished by his son Ramses II, greatest of all Pharaohs. So it is natural that his successors tried to erase the trans of RamsesII from the mind of common people, and brought their own image at front.

My personal believes are, even if the hieroglyph were re-carved, the exact resemblance of modern tools/weapons in more then five different shapes leaves too many questions to explore. Merely saying it is a result of re-carving doesn't justify the situation. There is lot more to explore.
