The face of the ancient Egyptian King Tutankhamun has been shown to the public for the first time since his tomb was discovered 85 years ago. King Tut's mummy has been moved into a special display case where it will be better protected from dust and the elements. VOA's Challiss McDonough is in Luxor and has this report.

They carried him past TV cameras to the other side of his cramped tomb, where a specially designed climate-controlled display ________ waited to become the boy king's new home.

 

King Tut's well-preserved face looks like dark leather, and has a hint of a smile. King Tut has what Egyptian antiquities chief Zahi Hawass calls beautiful buck teeth.

 

"The face of the golden boy is amazing. It has magic and it has ________. If you look at his face, you can feel the face of the golden king," he said.

 

Tutankhamun, popularly called King Tut, was just 19 when he died more than 3,200 years ago. The host of gold and treasure found when his tomb was opened in 1922 has made him one of the most famous of ancient Egypt's rulers. His golden death ________ has become an iconic image.

 

Moving they boy king's mummy is not just about putting his body on show. It is also designed to protect his ________ from the heat and humidity, which can reach sweltering levels as hundreds of visitors file through the tomb every day.

 

"Tutankhamun would be happy because we are preserving the mummy. Because humidity and heat can change this mummy to a powder," added Hawass.

 

King Tut's mummy went on public display for the first time 85 years to the day after his tomb was discovered by British archaeologist Howard Carter. It took five years for Carter to remove and catalogue the ________ of the tomb. In order to remove the king's gold and jewel-encrusted amulets and his famed golden death mask, Carter cut the mummy into 18 pieces.

 

"Howard Carter, he did a good job. But towards the mummy, especially about the mummy, no, he did not a good job. He did not do a good job. He damaged the mummy," said Egyptologist Mustafa Wazery is the director of the Valley of the Kings.

 

While the mask and amulets were put on display in Cairo and around the world, the mummy has lain in his tomb unseen by the public.

 

Some foreign tourists who were in the Valley of Kings when King Tut was moved were disappointed to discover that they would not be able to view the mummy until the following day.

 

New York City resident Scott Rudnick planned to ________ his schedule so he could return to the tomb on Monday or Tuesday to see the mummy ________.

 

"The number-one thing I ever wanted to do in my life was seeing the pyramids," said Rudnick. "Now, they are bringing out Tutankhamun, this is the best thing I could ever do in my life. This is just gonna be it."

Many said they recognized the Egyptian antiquities chief from________  documentaries.

 

Hawass said scientists began restoring the mummy of King Tut two years ago when he was briefly removed from the tomb for a CT scan. He said the scan revealed that Tutankhamun had likely died after contracting an infection from a broken leg.

 

Hawass said the king's remains are in poor condition, except for his head and feet, which are the only parts visible in the new display case. The rest of his body has been covered with beige linen.

 

Tour guides in the Valley of Kings said they were pleased that visitors would have a new reason to visit King Tut's tomb. The mummy has gone on display as a touring exhibit of artifacts from the tomb has been ________ huge crowds in North America and Europe.

There are three kinds of goals: short-term, medium-range and long-term goals.

Short-range goals are those that usually deal with current activities, which we can apply on a daily basis. Such goals can be achieved in a week or less, or  two   weeks, or possible months. It should be remembered that just as a building is no stronger than its foundation, out long-term goals cannot amount to very munch without the achievement of solid short-term goals. Upon completing our short-term goals, we should date the occasion and then add new short-term goals that will build on those that have been completed.

The intermediate goals build on the foundation of the short-range goals. They might deal with just one term of school or the entire school year, or they could even extend for several years. Any time you move a step at a time, you should never allow yourself to become discouraged or overwhelmed. As you complete each step, you will enforce the belief in your ability to grow and succeed. And as your list of completion dates grow, your motivation and desire will      increase.

Long-range goals may be related to our dreams of the future. They might cover five years or more. Life is not a static thing. We should never allow a        long-term goal to limit us or our course of action.
