Cairo is now home to some 15 million people - a burgeoning population produces approximately 10,000 tonnes of rubbish per day, putting an enormous strain on public services. In the past 10 years, the government has tried hard to encourage private investment in the refuse sector, but some estimate 4,000 tonnes of waste is left behind every day, festering in the heat as it waits for someone to clear it up. It is often the people in the poorest neighbourhoods that are worst affected. But in some areas they are fighting back. In Shubra, one of the northern districts of the city, the residents have taken to the streets armed with dustpans and brushes to clean up public areas which have been used as public dumps.
15 million tonnes of rubbish are produced daily in Cairo.

I asked myself how to understand the 'Twilight's success. And I have come to the idea that when you really believe in something, sooner or later it will become real. So, I guess this is what happened with Robert Pattinson. Last year he was just an unknown actor s biggest role was in a pair of "Harry Potter" movies. Now, not only that Twilight is competing with 'Harry Potter', but Robert Pattinson is one of the most famous young actors sucked $373.4 million from global box offices. So the movie about a vampire boy falls in love with a normal girl, begun a real hysteria. And Pattinson has a lot to do with it!.

You may not think you have ever heard Billy West, but chances are on a television program, a movie, a commercial, or as Howard Stern's voice guru in the 1990's, you have heard him.
