Jet Li is Sick

Popular Chinese actor, Jet Li who was the toast of many movie lovers a few years ago has drastically changed and most people will be shocked with his new image.

Although the actor is 55 years old, he looks like he is 90 years and its heartbreaking. From what we gathered, Jet Li is suffering from spinal problems and a condition known as Hyperthyroidism.

Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is overactive and makes excessive amounts of thyroid hormone. Hyperthyroidism causes changes in a person’s metabolism and heart rate.

Speaking about his problems, the renowned actor said:

“I took medicine for almost two years and everything appeared normal and I thought I was on the road to recovery. However, it came back again.”

“I had to calm myself down and not worry too much about it, My doctor said I needed to take iodine radioactive [treatment] to cure the illness but I didn’t take it and I just tried to avoid a high iodine diet. I am now completely cured.”

We wish him well and many more years.

UAE Ministry of Economy announces 50% off groceries during Ramadan

UAE’s Ministry of Economy has announced that there will be a 50% discount on more than 10,000 products in supermarkets.

This is part of an initiative to combat soaring prices and food hoarding before the month of Ramadan.

During the month of Ramadan in the UAE, families usually prepare a larger than usual quantity of food, due to the fact that they spend most of the day fasting. Supermarkets tend to abuse this high demand for food items by increasing prices. Families are rushing to buy and hoard a large number of food items at home in preparation for the month of heavy duty cooking which is also causing problems with outlets that are unable to match the demand.

The ministry managed to meet with major outlets all over the country and find a strategy which benefits all parties by ensuring that prices do not soar and also developing a discount system that ranges between 25-50% on over 10,000 products.

The meetings conducted finalized the launch of a “package” system whereby there will be 2 packages offered: the first package is a fixed package which contains 20 items for less than AED100. The second package will also contain 20 items for less than AED200, but it is an open package where the customer can mix and match the items they would like to have in the package.

Happy grocery shopping!

 

101-Year-Old Woman Gives Birth To Her 17th Baby

This story took place in Italy, Napoli. A centennial 101-year-old woman has made a controversial case because of ovary transplants and gave birth to a nine-pound baby, named Francesco.
In Turkey and in a private clinic with unknown name, the illegal surgical operation was done because European laws prevent ovary transplants.
The mother, Anatolia Vertadella, was thankful to all the team of doctors who did the procedure. Also, she was so grateful to have given birth to her 17th child. She said to local reporters that, that was is a true pond to the power of God.
The old mother added that she was very disparate at the age of 48 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and she could not procreate.
Dr. Alexandro Popolicchi asserts that the ultimate decision was up to his patient to make, in spite of the fact that the operation was highly debatable. Also, he considers himself that who was he to judge if it is the proper thing to do? He Continued that the prodigious birth to a nice infant was a gift from the creator!
In Turkey, a handful of expert surgeons undertook the procedure and was totally legal. To bring off the birth, Miss Vertadella could find a sperm donor while she was trying to find a father for her child, she met him on the internet, despite her husband died since 1998.
Francesco’s father is a 26-year-old Catholic man, and that was very important to her since she wished her baby to be born by the Catholic Church in a union sanctified.
However, they aren’t married and he won’t play a part in the boy’s life, but she requested the pope’s absolution, to forgive her in that particular condition and she also named the baby after the pope in his honor.
She wishes to be a widow all her life since she loves her deceased husband, but she was in need of the seed of that young Catholic. Watch the video above to see this stunning situation and tell us your opinion.

Sheikh Mohammed Rescues Women Stranded in the Desert

The ruler of Dubai has done it again…

A woman had an unexpected encounter with HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum after her car became stuck in the Dubai desert.

Hanna Karen Arroyo said the Dubai ruler and his crew came to her assistance when she and her friend were unable to tow their car out of the sand.

“My friend and I got stuck on the desert of Dubai and we got rescued by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid,” she wrote on Twitter.

Photos show an Emirati boy helping to attach a rope between Hanna’s car and Sheikh Mohammed’s famous G-class Mercedes with the “Dubai 1” number plate.

Afterwards, the Dubai ruler posed for a picture with Hanna and her friend, as well as another motorist who had tried to help.

It’s not the first time Sheikh Mohammed has saved the day in the Dubai desert.

Last year, photos emerged of the ruler coming to the rescue of a trio of cyclists who became stranded in the Al Qudra desert after one of their bikes broke.

UAE named among the World’s 20 Happiest Countries

Ohoud bint Khalfan Al Roumi, the UAE’s Minister of State for Happiness and Wellbeing, has hailed the country’s 20th position in the World Happiness Report 2018.

She said the ranking is a great achievement, and the result of the country’s forward-thinking vision to achieve happiness and wellbeing in the society.

“The concerted efforts and achievements made by federal and local government entities in the UAE to incorporate a culture of happiness and wellbeing in their environments and make it an important objective in their daily work was a key catalyst to rank the UAE as the 20th happiest country in the World Happiness Report,” she added in comments published by state news agency WAM.

Globally, Finland took the top spot as the happiest country as measured by surveys undertaken by Gallup International from 2015-2017.

Rounding out the rest of the top 10 in order of overall happiness were Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, and Australia.

The report, published by the Earth Institute at Columbia University and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, also ranked Emiratis as the 11th happiest nationality.

This year, the report has seen the addition of new indicators to measure and compare the level of happiness among expatriate populations in host countries, due to the rise in the number of people residing outside of their home countries.

In the 2018 report, which ranks happiness of the world’s foreign-born population during the period 2005–2017, the UAE ranked 19th among the happiest expat population, ahead of countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Singapore, France and Belgium.

The report draws on the results of the Gallup World Poll in 160 countries, covering more than 100 indicators based on seven themes to assess and measure different aspects of respondents’ daily lives.

The UAE achieved advanced results and ranked among the top seven in the world in 19 indicators adopted by the world poll, which is conducted annually to measure levels of people’s satisfaction and happiness.

The UAE ranked first globally in six indicators – convenience of city for people from different countries to live in, percentage of full-time employed population, satisfaction with efforts to preserve the environment, being healthy to perform daily activities, satisfaction with roads and highways, and availability of mobile phone for personal calls.

The country also came in second place in ranking satisfaction with the availability of quality healthcare, and belief that children in the country are treated with respect.

The World Happiness Report 2018 ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants.

Sheikh Mohammed was Spotted Admiring Dubai’s Love Lock Bridge

This is the best…

It looks like HH Sheikh Mohammed is as much of a romantic as we are.

The vice president of the UAE and ruler of Dubai recently toured The Yard, a new lakefront destination in Al Khawaneej.

As well as being home to a farmer’s market, and some pretty cool street art, The Yard also boasts Dubai’s first ‘Promise Bridge’ – where people can make symbolic pledges to their loved ones by attaching padlocks to the bridge (like the Ponts des Arts bridge in Paris).

The bridge has proved a big hit, filling up with more than 4000 locks in just one month.

It’s also apparently found a fan in Sheikh Mohammed, who was snapped inspecting the bridge last week:

Perhaps the ruler was considering adding a lock for his wife, HRH Princess Haya – how great would that be?

Currently, you can check out the first two phases of The Yard, which include a rustic courtyard, a bakery, air-conditioned and open-air restaurants, dining spaces, shops, a lake, shaded walking trails and expansive landscaped picnic areas.

The third phase will include cinemas, sports facilities, a shopping centre, a hypermarket and tracks for walking and jogging.

Sheikh Zayed memorial unveiled in Abu Dhabi

We can already tell it’s going to be stunning…

The Founder’s Memorial, a permanent tribute to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, has been unveiled in a grand ceremony in Abu Dhabi.

An art installation called “The Constellation” forms the centrepiece of the memorial. The design by public artist Ralph Helmick comprises 1,300 geometric shapes and 1,000 cables, which create a three-dimensional portrait of the late leader.

At night, these shapes will shine like stars, evoking the timelessness of Sheikh Zayed’s vision as a guiding light for the UAE people.

Here’s what the art installation looks like:

The unveiling ceremony was attended by members of the UAE’s royal families, ministers, dignitaries, and VIPS.

HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice president of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, said: “Zayed’s legacy will have a never-ending source of wisdom from which future generations draw inspiration as well as lessons of patriotism and dedication.

“The Founder’s Memorial will continue to testify to the achievements of the founding leader and the sacrifices he made. His legacy is filled with stories of loyalty to the homeland, and it places a responsibility on us and on future generations to safeguard the gains, and build on the success stories so that our homeland remains a symbol of dignity and development.”

The Founder’s Memorial, located at the intersection of 1st and 2nd street along the Abu Dhabi Corniche, will officially open to the public in spring.

It has been described as a place of gathering for the UAE community to explore, contemplate and find moments of pause, while enabling international audiences to learn more about Sheikh Zayed; the man and the leader.

The site will consist of 3.3 hectares of public space for walking and quiet reflection.

Landscaped areas will be planted with trees and shrubs indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula, and there will be an elevated walkway offering views of The Constellation, the Corniche and the Abu Dhabi skyline.

New to Abu Dhabi? Here’s everything you need to know about Ramadan

The Holy Month is expected to begin on Thursday May 17, with Eid Al Fitr celebrations commencing most likely on Friday June 15. But are you new to the UAE and wondering what it all means? Here’s what you need to know about this special time of the year….

Ramadan Q&As

What is Ramadan?

The ninth month of the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is a time when Muslims around the world abstain from eating, drinking or smoking between sunrise and sunset.

Lasting about a month, it marks the time when the Qur’an was first revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Extra tarawih prayers are performed at the mosque throughout Ramadan and each evening 1/30th of the holy book is recited. By the end of Ramadan, many observers have read the entire Qur’an.

Why is Ramadan so important to Muslims?

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam, which are the foundation of the religion. The pillars are the framework by which Muslims everywhere live, and Ramadan is considered the holiest time in the Islamic calendar. It is a time for prayer, reflection and religious devotion, to cleanse past sins and to focus on Allah through good deeds.

Here are the five pillars of Islam…

Testimony of faith Religious devotion to Allah as the one God and Mohammad (PBUH) as the messenger

Prayer The promise to pray at the required five times every day

Zakat Muslims are taught to give a certain percentage of their wealth to charity

Fasting during Ramadan This is an annual commitment that Muslims follow

Pilgrimage to Mecca All Muslims are obliged to do the hajj, the trip to Mecca, at least once in a lifetime

Why do Muslims fast?

Fasting, or sawn, loosely translates as ‘to refrain’. So during Ramadan Muslims commit to not eating, drinking, smoking or even chewing gum during daylight hours. But sawn isn’t just about physical restraint, it also refers to bad thoughts, actions and words.

Many people assume that Ramadan is about deprivation, but in Islam it’s often a time to spend with family, breaking fast at sunset over iftar. The fast itself is intended to help Muslims learn about self-discipline and restraint, and enable them to empathise with those who have less.

Must everyone fast?

For Muslims, everyone is required to fast, but there are exceptions. Young children, pregnant women and the elderly and infirm are not required to fast due to possible health complications. Women on their monthly cycle do not fast, nor do people who are ill. If there is a temporary break in the fast, Muslims are required to make up the missing days after Ramadan. Non-Muslims are not required to fast. However, they should behave sensitively throughout Ramadan, which means no eating, drinking or smoking in public during daylight hours.

Does everything close during the day?

Many cafés and restaurants remain open during Ramadan, but may have shorter or different opening times so it’s best to call before. The places that are open during the daytime are likely to have curtains or panels in place to conceal people eating and drinking from those fasting.

Everything tends to happen much later in the day during Ramadan. The malls close even later than usual, with many staying open well after midnight.

Do I need to do anything differently during the day?

It’s important for everyone to dress and behave appropriately during the holy month. Even those who aren’t fasting should make sure that their clothes are modest, covering shoulders, chest and knees. Keep music levels down to a minimum when you’re driving and, of course, no public displays of affection. 

Ramadan glossary

Iftar  The meal at sunset when Muslims break their daytime fast.

Suhoor Technically the meal before sunrise before Muslims start fasting. Much more laid back than iftar, suhoor often starts late at night and runs into the early hours of the morning

Hilal The thin crescent moon marking the beginning of a new month in the Islamic calendar, which is used to predict the start of Ramadan

Sunnah  The teachings and practices of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Eating dates to break fast, for example, is a sunnah

Ramadan Dos & Don’ts

DO make the most of the community spirit. Introduce yourself to your neighbours, get involved in and catch up with friends and family.

DO accept food and drink when offered during iftar – it is a sign of respect and friendliness.

DO remember that your office hours are likely to change, whether you’re Muslim or not. The general UAE labour law states that all workers’ hours are reduced during Ramadan to six hours a day. However, the DIFC labour law stipulates that the shorter working day is just for those fasting.

DO become a night owl. Everything happens later during Ramadan. Malls are open past midnight and suhoors go into the early hours. Embrace the late nights and discover a side to the UAE you may have not seen before.

DO your bit for a good cause. Ramadan is a good time to put your money where your mouth is. The UAE has a wide range of charitable and volunteering organisations that you can get involved
in. 

DO embrace the culture. Take your family to tents, play a set of backgammon or bring a deck of Uno cards, and relax with a Moroccan mint tea.

DO try fasting for a day. It’s a good way to understand what your Muslim friends and colleagues are experiencing.

DON’T forget the rules. Eating, drinking and smoking during daylight hours is prohibited, even if you’re not Muslim.

DON’T dress inappropriately or wear tight fitting clothes – modesty is key.

DON’T leave dinner reservations until the last minute – restaurants across the UAE tend to get a lot busier as families and friends meet to break their fasts together.

DON’T play loud music or swear in public as it may offend those who are fasting.

DON’T count on happy hour. Most bars and clubs here will be closed during Ramadan and those that remain open will only serve alcohol once the sun has set.

DON’T get into arguments or fights. Ramadan is the month of peace and serenity.

DON’T miss it. Many expats tend to leave during Ramadan, but this is one of the most vibrant times in the UAE. It’s the perfect time to immerse yourself in the culture.

The trick people have been using to find jobs in the UAE

Whether you want to work in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or any other Emirate in the UAE, applying for the job as a foreign candidate may seem almost impossible, and the truth is: it is, if you are applying externally. But there is a common “trick” or technique nowadays that most new UAE employees are using to find a job.

Hiring candidates from outside the UAE can be very cubersome for HR departments. Unless the job requires a specialized, hard to find talent or a high level role, then they will usually avoid the complications, and look for candidates internally.

The way you can benefit from this is by being inside the UAE while applying for a job. When HR agents read CVs, they will almost always short list applicants that are currently in the UAE and able to attend a face to face interview. The good news is, they don’t care wether you are on a visit visa or not. Even if you are, and you do get hired, they will facilitate everything for you so that you can change your visa from a visit visa to an employee visa. It’s cheaper and easier for them, and less risky. This allows them to test your performance for a few weeks and saves them the headaches of Skype interviews, arranging flight tickets/residence and processing visas for candidates.

Keep in mind that the type of jobs discussed here are average jobs that don’t need special talent and available in large quantities, otherwise this technique may not be appropriate.

The trick is to apply for a long term visit visa, a 3 month one. The 1 month one will not be long enough. Even the 3-month visa was not enough for some people. It takes time for your application to be received and for you to be offered an interview. Patience will be required.

When applying for the job, make sure your location says UAE, and that you are able to attend a physical interview. Here are some websites you can use to apply for jobs:

Of course you may be thinking, how the hell can you survive 3 months in such an expensive country? I can’t tell you how, but your biggest expense will probably be your accommodation, which I will tell you how you can get cheaper. The cheapest form of accommodation in the UAE is called a “bed space”, which costs somewhere around 600 AED per month. It is basically a room shared with around 6-10 people, and you get a “bed space” (literally) in in one of the bunker beds. You will also need money for transportation, to attend interviews and pass your CV around companies. It will be best to familiarize yourself with the public transportation that is available in the city you will search in, because taxis will be very expensive.

Is it worth the risk? That’s totally up to you to decide. But it’s a good shot.

The Incredible Facts about the Crown Prince of Dubai-Sheikh Hamdan and a Look at the Richest Men there

Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, or Sheikh Hamdan, or just Fazza, is a 33-year-old Crown Prince of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. He’s handsome as all hell, has more money than you can imagine and is fond of things and activities that aren’t usually typical for the royalty, like, falconry, F-1 racing and snowboarding.

Sheikh Hamdan, has over 3,000,000 followers on Instagram and has been chosen as one of the top 100 ‘global personalities’ on Snapchat.

His glorious Instagram feed tells us a bit more about his life. We see that he loves traveling, unusual adventures, nature, and animals. Is it me or does that sound a lot like Disney’s Aladdin, actually? Anyway, here are some very curious facts about Fazza every fan should know!

Sheikh Hamdan is the 3rd of 23 kids to his father, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai. After one of his elder brothers died of a heart attack, Fazza was appointed hereditary Crown Prince of Dubai, as everyone thought he was more suited for the role.

Fazza studied at the Rashid School for Boys and the Dubai School of Government. After that his father sent him to Sandhurst Military Academy in the UK, where Prince William and Prince Harry used to hang out. He later enrolled in a few specialized Economy courses in London’s School of Economics.

It is no surprise that Fazza loves photography, but did you know he actually founded the Hamdan International Photography Award (HIPA) in 2011? In 2015 the reward pool was $120,000!

Fazza got the gold medal in a 160km bike run, where he competed with 227 riders, from 41 countries. But that’s not all, have you seen the shots of him freediving, swimming, snowboarding, running and playing all sorts of games? His love for extreme sports is even greater – from wing walking, flyboarding, ziplining past the Burj, flying in an Airbus next to Jet Man, taking a selfie from the top of the Burj Khalifa, diving with elephants, trekking on glaciers… Yeah, this guy knows how to have fun!

Speaking of sports, he wants to revive the ancient art of falconry, which is an integral part of Emirati cultural heritage. The sport became less popular due to all the constructions around Dubai and a loss of desert land in recent years.

“Fazza” is the pseudonym Hamdan uses to publish his poetry. Why “Fazza” you ask? When he just started to write Nabati poetry (a local form of Arabic) he used the name “Fazza” as a reference to a legendary Arab knight. You can also find his poetry online and already translated!

Traveling is probably Fazza’s most favorite activity of all. Europe, the US, New Zealand – you name it, he’s been there. Thanks to his travels, the loyal Instagram and Snapchat followers can sort of take part in the adventures themselves. And who wouldn’t want to travel along a prince, right?

“I can show you the world, shining, shimmering, splendid…” Do you see it now? He’s totally Aladdin! All he needs is a magic carpet, but I guess a private jet will do.
