There is a large stela betweenrepparttar front paws ofrepparttar 109417 sphinx. It was placed by king ThutmoseIV and describesrepparttar 109418 king during his hunting inrepparttar 109419 young days ,while falling asleep minrepparttar 109420 shade onrepparttar 109421 sphinx. During his sleep, he dreamt thatrepparttar 109422 sphinx talked to him and told him to clear awayrepparttar 109423 sand around his head and he will be rewarded by making him a pharaoh.

Howeverrepparttar 109424 sphinx misses some pieces, his ritual beard that is now placed inrepparttar 109425 British museum. While his nose was used as a target by Napoleonís troops.

The sphinx has undergone many major restorations. It now features a sound and light display where it seems as though narrating its story. This is a much delightful tourist attraction by itself.

Written by Murdo Macleod

Continued from page 1

In a study published byrepparttar American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers tested people aged between 65 and 90 and discovered thatrepparttar 109416 people withrepparttar 109417 best ability to memorize words were those whose diets includedrepparttar 109418 most fruits and vegetables.

Coincidentally,repparttar 109419 same group of people aterepparttar 109420 least artery-clogging saturated fat. Of allrepparttar 109421 fruits and vegetables studied, blueberries and blackberries containrepparttar 109422 most potent antioxidants, anthocyanins.

4. Get Physical

Physical exercise not only boosts memory but also helps you think faster. A combination of mental and physical activities can protect your memory and help keep you alert.

The brain's processing speed gradually slows as you age. Between ages 25 and 55, many people begin to experience problems coming up with names or numbers. The memory is there. It just takes people longer to retrieve it.

Staying physically fit can ward off some ofrepparttar 109423 effects of age onrepparttar 109424 brain. In real life, that could mean coming up with a forgotten name more quickly or jumping out of danger inrepparttar 109425 face of an oncoming car.

5. Exercise Your Brain

Mental gymnastics are as important as physical ones to preserving brainpower.

Take up word games like crossword puzzles and acrostics. Memorize favorite poems, read challenging books or articles that encourage you to expand your interests.

Practice other-handedness. If you're right- handed, try brushing your teeth or writing your grocery list with your left hand.

Any activity that requires you to think and concentrate -- from keeping a journal or learning a new language to taking music lessons -- will challenge your brain.

And your brain will thrive onrepparttar 109426 challenge.
