Brooklyn, United States - October 6, 2017 /PressCable/ —

The funeral directors of Sampson Funeral Service, Inc. know that deciding between interment and cremation for dealing with a loved one’s physical remains can be hard for some families. They are available to help the families of Fort Greene, NY with this important choice by offering them necessary information, guidance and compassion. Burial is the dominant method of final disposition in this country, but cremation has seen a tremendous growth in popularity in the United States in recent times. The Catholic Church renounced its ban on the process in 1963 and began allowing cremated remains to be displayed at funeral masses in 1997, where they are treated no differently from casketed remains. Because of this, many more Christians are choosing this means of handling human bodies after a passing.

Conducting a cremation reduces a corpse to gases, ashes and mineral fragments that resemble dry bone. Most frequently, this is accomplished by subjecting the physical remains to extreme flames. Oftentimes, the loved one instructed his or her family on the way that they wanted their body cared for. For families, cremation does not limit the ways in which they can pay tribute to the deceased’s life. On the contrary, it makes even more options available to them, especially when choosing the final resting place of their loved one.

With casketed remains, a family basically has two choices for the final disposition- they can bury them in the earth or have them stored above ground in a mausoleum. When working with cremated remains, families can arrange for a scattering ceremony to take place in the air, on land or at sea. They can inter the cremains in the family plot, retain them in their place of residence, share them among geographically distant family members using mini urns, inurn them in a columbarium niche, suspend a part of them in keepsake jewelry or pieces of solid glass sculpture, have them turned into a unique certified diamond, place them in fireworks and ignite, incorporate them into an artificial reef ball or send them to the stars on a celestial flight. And these are just some of the choices that lay before a family in terms of a finding a fitting and meaningful final place of rest for their departed.

Additionally, a family may hold a memorial service that occurs following the cremation itself and on the date and in the place that they choose. Memorial gatherings give families a lot more time than funerals for planning the ceremony. Not only are families better able to accommodate the various schedules of their guests, but those they invite to the service that are coming from far away have time to find less expensive travel arrangements and lodgings than those available within the first few days after the death. Casketed remains are not present at memorial ceremonies; families often display the urn containing the loved one’s ashes instead.

Young Nubians revive dream of returning to land in Egypt

Jul 18, 2018

ASWAN, Egypt — The world of their parents and grandparents was turned upside down more than 50 years ago when they were evacuated from villages along the Nile River to make way for the High Dam. Now a younger generation has revived the long-dormant cause of Egypt's Nubians, campaigning for a return to their lands and struggling to preserve their culture. Their timing could not have been worse. Recent peaceful marches by Nubians were met by swift suppression from the government of President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, which has shown little tolerance for dissent. To a state dominated by the military and...

Egypt's young Nubians revive dream of return to homeland

Jul 18, 2018

ASWAN, Egypt — Siham Othman was born decades after her grandparents were forced to evacuate from their homes on the banks of the Nile River along with tens of thousands of their fellow Nubians. But she has a lifelong bond with her ancestral homeland. Her grandfather became a merchant sailor and travelled the world. Yet when he told her stories, they were only about Nubia. "He is the one who planted the dream of return in me," said the 30-year-old Osman. Osman and a young generation of Nubian activists have revived the cause of their people. They are trying to...

Two communities show Nubians' past, a version of the future

Jul 18, 2018

WADI KARKAR, Egypt — With a mix of nostalgia and sorrow, Egypt's Nubians look back at their lives in ancestral lands in southern Egypt as a peaceful era tied intimately to the Nile River. Since their eviction in the 1960s to make way for the giant lake behind the Aswan High Dam, they have lived in desolate towns further north, often on the edge of the desert. Many in the community yearn to return to lands along the banks of Lake Nasser. Two communities show the contrasts of the Nubians' fate — one pointing back to the Nubians' past, the...

Archaeologists in Egypt discover mummification workshop

Jul 18, 2018

CAIRO — Archaeologists in Egypt stumbled upon a new discovery dating back to more than 2,500 years ago near Egypt's famed pyramids at an ancient necropolis south of Cairo. The discovery which includes a mummification workshop and a shaft, used as a communal burial place, is located at the vast Saqqara necropolis part of the Memphis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Memphis, the first capital of ancient Egypt, and its large necropolis are home to a wide range of temples and tombs as well as the three pyramids of Giza. The latest find, announced at a press conference Saturday, belongs...

A look in Iraq's courtrooms where IS suspects are tried

Jul 18, 2018

BAGHDAD — Over three days in late May, the presiding judge of the counterterrorism court in Baghdad heard an average of 12-13 cases a day and sentenced to death at least 10 defendants accused of being Islamic State group members. Death sentences are being issued at a dizzying rate in Iraq's rush to prosecute and punish suspected IS members: more than 3,000 over the past few years, with new ones added every day. Yet, few witness these proceedings. Cameras are strictly forbidden inside. The trials are not broadcast, and even if a member of the public wished to attend, the...
