A house maid being beaten to death… maid suicides in Kuwait… Brutality… abuse… How many times have you read about such incidents in Kuwait? If you ask me, I’d say “Almost everyday”.
Below is a press release from “Human Rights Watch” about a campaign being launched in Kuwait to reveal abuse and improve conditions for domestic workers. A must read…
During the time our respectful – are they? – parliament members are fighting over Sunna-Shi’a issues in Islamic subjects, our children, brother & sisters are missing the “real” necessary education. I’m not saying the religious education is not necessary, it is! but it’s really important to provide a better “science-oriented” education. Comparing the Kuwaiti schools to America, Kuwait is definitely way beyond, but to show how important it is for Americans, and how frustrated they are because they fell into #20 in graduation rates. I wonder what is Kuwait’s rank?
Below, is a video I found on Vimeo, it literally describes the education crisis in America… the thing that exactly applies on Kuwait, taking into consideration that it is much much much worse in Kuwait. Watch it, and you’ll feel bad!
In an interview with Alqabas newspaper, the respectful Mr. Bader Al.Shuraian – Minister of Electricity in Kuwait promised that the ministry will deliver TWO NEW ELECTRICAL POWER STATIONS in 2011. I do believe in Mr. Bader… but I don’t believe in the government! Just to keep an eye, and not to forget… I have installed a countdown plugin in the right column which will count for a whole year, plus a bonus of extra 5 days
Will they be up to it?

Following the finalization of Zain Africa sale, Zain management took further steps in re-organizing the management structure by switching positions and appointing new names. Khalid Al.Omar was appointed today as Zain Kuwait CEO, where Khalid Al.Hajeri (Former Zain kuwait CEO) was appointed as Zain CEO advisor for Saudi Affairs. The changes included the return of the former CEO Barrak Al.Sabeeh as Zain Group COO (Chief Operating Officer).
Created by Dr. Nayif Al-Mutawa and being first published in 2006, I remember reading the 1st issue about some characters possessing super power… It was really interesting reading Kuwaiti originated comic books back then.
The 99 are ordinary teenagers and adults from across the globe, who come into possession of one of the 99 mystical Noor Stones (Ahjar Al Noor, Stones of Light) and find themselves empowered in a specific manner. All dilemmas faced by The 99 will be overcome through the combined powers of three or more members. Through this, The 99 series aims to promote values such as cooperation and unity throughout the Islamic world. Although the series is not religious, it aims to communicate Islamic virtues which are, as viewed by Dr. Al-Mutawa, universal in nature. WikiPedia
In April 27th – few days ago-, The Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship held in the White House, president Barack Obama made a special mention on THE 99 and Dr. Nayif Al.Mutawa as one of the most impressive cultural entrepreneurs of our times.
Very proud of you Dr. Nayif
