Indiana Jones meets Clark Kent in this modern-day treasure hunt. Archaeologist Cairo Vanderbilt was born to be a treasure hunter, whether he liked it or not. When his famous father dies in search of the tomb of Alexander the Great, Cairo picks up the trail to find the world's most famous lost treasure. Having failed once before, he's determined to find Alexander’s remains and fulfill his family's legacy. History blogger Dillinger DeCosta has only written about the past from the safety of his South Boston office. After hearing Cairo speak about the coming expedition on the evening news, he wants to join the hunt for Alexander and finally be on the front lines of history-in-the-making. By offering to come along, Dillinger is taking a huge risk, but he's banking on an even bigger reward. Hot on Alexander’s trail, Cairo and Dillinger discover sparks between them that ignite unexpectedly. One of the men has a secret that may threaten not only the success of the expedition, but their new relationship as well. If they can't find a way past the challenge that lies between them, they might just lose the greatest treasure of all. Each other. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Pauley.

Faced with formidable challenges to expression in Cairo's public spaces, urban blogger activists have developed new means of articulating dissent with spatial tactics from boycott campaigns, cyber-activism and protest art to innovations in mobilisation, modes of communication and organisational flexibility. Urban blogger activists have transformed Spaces of Freedom into heterotopian zones for public protest, employing urban installations and street graffiti, prompting the construction of a significant site of urban resistance and spatial contestation. This was particularly evident during January 2011 pro-democracy street rallies and sit-ins within Cairo s Tahrir Square, this part of the city being regarded as a contested site for collective action and as a symbolic space for urban youth's political participation and spatial appropriation. The emergence of this grassroots street activism opens up a new public sphere through which the role of urban governance might be contested to accommodate cultural identities within various forms of spatiality and popular democracy.
