On this day: 27 November

ON THIS DAY- On this day in 1895, the will drawn up by Swedish chemist Alfred Bernhard Nobel established the Nobel prizes. 800 years earlier, in 1095, Pope Urban II ordered the first Crusade, by calling all Christians in Europe to war against Muslims in order to reclaim the Holy Land, in what The History Channel describes as perhaps the most influential speech of the Middle Ages. Rock music legend Jimi Hendrix was born on this day in 1942. Two years earlier, Bruce Lee was born, and in 1960, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was born. This time in 2014, we were reporting on the EGX approving Edita’s listing. A year later, we took note of Pope Tawadros II becoming the first Coptic pope to travel to Jerusalem since 1832 and Farouk El-Okdah returning for a role at the central bank. This time last year, the international financial markets were viewing Egypt as an “upside story.”
