Egyptian cheese

Egyptian cheese has a long history, continues to be an important part of the Egyptian diet. There is evidence of cheese-making over 5,000 years ago in the time of the First Dynasty of Egypt. In the Middle Ages the city of Damietta was famous for its white cheese. Cheese was imported, the common hard yellow cheese, rumi takes its name from the Arabic word for "Roman". Although many rural people still make their own cheese, notably the fermented mish, mass-produced cheeses are becoming more common. Cheese is served with breakfast, is included in several traditional dishes, in some desserts. Cheese is thought to have originated in the Middle East; the manufacture of cheese is depicted in murals in Egyptian tombs from 2,000 BC. Two alabaster jars found at Saqqara, dating from the First Dynasty of Egypt, contained cheese; these were placed in the tomb about 3,000 BC. They were fresh cheeses coagulated with acid or a combination of acid and heat. An earlier tomb, that of King Hor-Aha may have contained cheese which, based on the hieroglyphic inscriptions on the two jars, appear to be from Upper and Lower Egypt.

The pots are similar to those used today. Cottage cheese was made in ancient Egypt by churning milk in a goatskin and straining the residue using a reed mat; the Museum of Ancient Egyptian Agriculture displays fragments of these mats. In the 3rd century BC there are records of imported cheese from the Greek island of Chios, with a twenty-five percent import tax being charged. According to the medieval philosopher Al-Isra'ili, in his day there were three types of cheese: "a moist fresh cheese, consumed on the same day or close to it; the first would have been unripened cheese made locally from sour milk, which may or may not have been salted. The old dry cheeses would have been imported, were cheeses ripened by rennet enzymes or bacteria; the nature of the "medium" cheese is less certain, may have referred to preserved fresh cheeses, evaporated milk or cheese similar to Indian paneer, where the addition of vegetable juices makes the milk coagulate. Medieval Egyptian cheese used buffalo or cows' milk, with less use of goat and sheep milk than in other countries of the region.

Damietta on the Mediterranean coast was the primary area where cheese was made for consumption in other parts of the country. Damietta was well known not just for its buffaloes but for its Khaysiyya cows, from which Kaysi cheese was made. Khaysi cheese is mentioned as early as the eleventh century A. D. A fifteenth century author describes the cheese being washed, which may imply that it was salted in brine, it may therefore have been an ancestor of modern Dumyati cheese, produced today in the Damietta district. Fried cheese was a common food in Egypt in the Middle Ages, cooked in oil and served with bread by street vendors. Fried cheese was eaten by both poor and rich, was considered a delicacy by some of the Mamluk sultans. A 17th-century writer described mishsh as the "blue qarish cheese, kept for so long that it cut off the mouse's tail with its burning sharpness and the power of its saltiness"; the Egyptian peasants ate this cheese with bread, leeks, or green onions as a staple part of their diet.

It seems that the mishsh made and eaten by country people today is the same cheese. The Egyptians imported cheese from Sicily and Syria in the Middle Ages. Production of pickled cheeses rose from 171,000 tonnes in 1981 to 293,000 tonnes in 2000 all consumed locally. Imports of cheese to Egypt peaked at 29,000 tonnes in 1990, but with establishment of modern factories the volume of imports had dropped to under 1,000 tonnes by 2002. Between 1984 and 2007 production of cheese of all types in Egypt rose from about 270,000 tonnes to over 400,000 tonnes. In 1991 half of the cheese was still made using traditional methods in rural areas, the other half was made using modern processes; the common Domiati cheese was being manufactured by private dairies using small milk batches of 500 kilograms, in large government plants in five tonne batches. The government owned Misr Milk and Food Co. had nine plants with an annual capacity of 13,000 to 150,000 tonnes of dairy products. Annual consumption of pickled cheeses was estimated at 4.4 kilograms in 2000.

In 2002 it was estimated that more than one third of Egyptian milk production was used in making traditional pickled cheeses or ultrafiltered feta-type cheeses. The domiati cheese now contains less buffalo milk than in the past; the fat from cows' milk is replaced in part by vegetable oils to reduce cost and retain the white color expected by consumers. Various other changes have been introduced such as mandatory heat treatment of the milk, but manufacturers have striven to retain the familiar taste and appearance of the cheeses. Cheese is served with breakfast in Egypt, along with bread and olives. Various types of soft, white cheeses and gebna rūmi may be eaten in ēish fīno, a small baguette, or with ēish baladi, a flatbread that forms the backbone Egyptian cuisine. White cheeses and mish are often served at the start of a multi-course meal alongside various appetizers, or muqabilat, bread. Fiteer is a flaky filo pastry with a stuffing or topping that may include white cheese and peppers, ground meat, egg and olives.

Sambusak is a flaky pastry that may be stuffed with meat or spinach. Qatayef, a dessert served during the month of Ramadan, is of Fatimid origin, it is prepared by street vendors in Egypt. Qatayef are pancakes stuffed with nuts

Florida Board of Control

The Florida Board of Control was the statewide governing body for the State University System of Florida, which included all public universities in the state of Florida. It was replaced by the Florida Board of Regents in 1965; the Florida Board of Control was created by the 1905 legislation known as the Buckman Act. The act reorganized Florida's public higher education system into three institutions, segregated by race and gender, as follows: State Normal College for Colored Students for African Americans Florida State College for Women for Caucasian women University of the State of Florida for Caucasian menThe gender separation aspect of the Buckman Act was overturned by the Florida Legislature in 1947 when Florida State University was returned to coeducational status and the University of Florida was made coeducational; the Legislature determined it necessary to make room for the World War II veterans who wished to use the GI Bill of Rights to pursue their educational endeavors. While the racial segregation aspect of the Buckman Act was overturned by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Florida State University and the University of Florida began accepting African American undergraduates in 1961-1962.

The State Normal College for Colored Students changed their name to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical College for Negroes in 1909, in 1953 the name was again changed to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University.

Compliance Ireland

Compliance Ireland was formally established in January 2004, but informally commenced in mid-2003. It is a private company, but uniquely it writes on, contributes to, numerous debates in Ireland about corporate governance and compliance on an independent basis. Compliance Ireland is quoted in newspapers, government reports, television and Wikipedia. Compliance Ireland has been both a measured critic and supporter of the Financial Regulator and Central Bank since the two entities were loosely joined in 2003 following a wide sweeping regulatory review commenced by Michael McDowell in the late 1990s and published in 2001. In early 2009 the Irish Prime Minister or Taoiseach, Brian Cowen, announced the creation of a new unitary central bank and financial services regulator; the proposed new regulator has been referred to by various names. It is expected to be known as the Central Bank of Ireland Commission or similar; the CIBC will replace the Central Bank and Financial Services Authority of Ireland created in 2003, although it did not receive its enforcement powers until 2004.

The Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan, signaled that he would publish a Bill by the end of 2009. The Central Bank Commission was established by the Central Bank Reform Act 2010 and is responsible for ensuring that the statutory functions of the Central Bank are properly discharged. Notwithstanding a lack of a heads of Bill, the Minister has been busy appointing a new Governor and Head of Financial Regulation to spearhead central bank and financial services regulatory reform in Ireland. Governor Honohan commenced his position in October 2009 and Mr Elderfield will join the CBIC in early January 2010. A number of significant and senior roles reporting into Mr Elderfield were advertised on 18 December 2009, including three Assistant Director-General roles and the Registrar of Credit Unions
