Swine Flu Among Students of Private Schools


KUWAIT TIMES: Well-informed health sources said that four swine flu cases were discovered amongst students of a private school in Salmiya, and that by examining other students as a precautionary measure, they were all found clear of the H1N1 virus. The sources also stressed that swine flu was no longer dangerous and that it was only as dangerous as seasonal flu, unless infected people suffer from other chronic diseases such as diabetes, blood pressure, heart or lung diseases.

LWDLIK - Not just schools in Salmiya, there have been reports of cases in quite a few schools around Kuwait.

The Language of Movement Workshop & Performance at Al Shaheed Park

There is a universal language in which all people everywhere can express themselves and understand one another. It is the language of movement. 
We are all using this language on a daily basis. Whatever we are doing, the movements of our bodies can express something of within us. Movement vocalizes by working with weight, posture, gesture, patterns, rhythm, space and relationship of body parts. We will explore what these devices might communicate about emotion, thought, physical structures, cultural/social traditions and visual preferences. Come join us for a three day intensive workshop uncovering the language of movement in performance.
Dates: November 30th until December 3rd
Time: 5pm – 8pm
Location: Visitor Center
Language: English
* This workshop is free of charge

WARNING! Lady Attacked Whilst Jogging in Dahiya Abdulla Salem Last Night

My dear friend was attacked last night when she was out jogging. She has asked me to share this with you all to warn you. Please be cautious. Thankfully she was unhurt just very, very shaken by the ordeal.

"Last night I was attacked 500m from my home..I was running on the path in Dahait Abdulla Salem. .I passed a man sitting on a bench and suddenly I was grabbed from behind and a hand over my mouth and one around my waist unto my private area..I hit ..yelled. .screamed and he ran away and I yelled ' I'll call the police' suddenly he took what looked like a knife and started running towards me again.. I ran ..I got away ..unhurt physically. .mentally maybe not..
Please ladies that live here in Kuwait. .be aware...I have always felt safe and never expected this and definitely not in my area of Kuwait."

She did go to the police station but it all happened so quickly that she can't be sure of his description. So he's still out there. And from what she told me it seems he was waiting for an opportunity. Be aware ladies and take a companion with you. Stay safe.

Perhaps The Words 'Had Sex' Would Be Less Confusing For All

Little typo, should be 'carnal knowledge' as per the Biblical term and not knowledge of canals. And I'm just clueless at 'slept off.' Come on Arab Times -  a little proof reading required before printing please.

ISIS Cell Nabbed in Kuwait Supplying Arms and Finance to ISIS

KUWAIT: Photos show the six suspects arrested by police yesterday. - KUNA

Kuwaiti security authorities have busted an international cell led by a Lebanese man that was sending air defense systems and funds to the Islamic State group, the Interior Ministry said yesterday. The cell’s chief, who was not named, confessed that he raised funds and provided logistical support for the group, which has carried out deadly attacks in Lebanon and France in the past week, the ministry said. He acted as coordinator for the Islamic State in Kuwait and arranged arms deals and FN6 portable air defense systems from Ukraine, which were shipped to IS in Syria through Turkey

. The ministry did not provide details about the size of the arms deals. Besides the Lebanese mastermind, authorities arrested three Syrians, an Egyptian and a Kuwaiti and said four others were outside Kuwait-two Syrians and two Australians of Lebanese origin. Several suspected IS members and sympathizers were tried in the Gulf emirate for a suicide bombing in June claimed by the group.

A court sentenced seven men to death and jailed eight others to between two and 15 years for assisting the Saudi bomber. An appeals court is to issue its verdict in the case on December 13. Earlier this month, the lower court sentenced five men to 10 years in jail each for raising funds for IS. They were charged with raising about 400,000 Kuwaiti dinars ($1.3 million) and sending it to IS, which has seized control of large parts of Syria and Iraq and carried out attacks throughout the Middle East. Over the past year, Kuwaiti courts have issued several rulings against IS supporters. — AFP

Please Don't Tell me Not to Sympathise with the French

I've noticed that there are quite a few of my friends who don't feel the same way as I do about the horrendous attacks in Paris. They seem to think that I don't care about what's happening around the world (Beirut, Syria, Gaza, Pakistan, Japan, Kuwait, etc). That would be very wrong. I, for one, care very deeply. No, French lives do not matter more than other innocent lives lost. But the incident that has occurred in Paris has a different slant to it. It is an attack on our way of life, our joie de vivre. To co-exist happily is to be tolerant of each other, even if our beliefs are diametrically opposite. I believe some Westerners see co-existence threatened, but then the ISIS monsters would win.

It is hard for me as a Westerner to find the right words to express my opinion and not sound
disingenuous. An accomplished Kuwaiti artist and poet, Dr Shurooq Amin, says it with a crystal clear clarity of understanding.

"We have gotten so jaded about war and lives lost in the Middle East that when lives are lost in Paris or NY it seems more shocking. It's not that lives are more valuable in Europe. It's that we, as Arabs, have been viewing Europe as our safe haven: the place we escape to, the paradise in which we seek joy and freedom, the future with hope for our kids or for us to retire in. Losing security in Europe is not shocking because the lives there are more valuable than Syria, Iraq, Palestine or Lebanon...absolutely not. Rather, it is because we lost our "escape" plan, our illusion for a safe future, our Plan B. No where is safe anymore. Earth has been invaded by the worse disease it has routinely known throughout history: dogmatic ideologies. As I said on BBC Arabia , it's time for the educators, the liberals, the creative minds, and the giant hearts (there are still good people out there, even those that have money and power can be good; not all are corrupt or greedy)'s time for an intellectual revolution. Change people's fixed ideologies and you can change the world." ~ Shurooq Amin

Go #Anonymous Hackers Get Those #Daeshbags

The "Anonymous" hackers collective, represented here by mask-wearing demonstrators at a French trial November 9, 2015, claimed November 17 to have taken down 5,500 Twitter accounts tied to the Islamic State jihadist group

Washington (AFP) - The hacker group Anonymous claimed Tuesday to have taken out 5,500 Twitter accounts linked to the Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.
The loosely organized hacking collective made the claim in a tweet one day after launching #OpParis campaign, which stepped up an earlier effort to shut down social media accounts of the organization.
"We report that more than 5500 Twitter account of #ISIS are now #down! #OpParis #Anonymous #ExpectUs," said a tweet posted on Tuesday which followed a video message posted Monday.
It was not immediately clear how the accounts would have been disabled. But the hacker group said it posted the accounts to an online forum labeling them as #daeshbags, a reference to Daesh, an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.
In an apparent riposte, a message posted via the messaging service Telegram calls on Islamic State affiliates to secure their Internet communications.
"The #Anonymous hackers threatened... that they will carry out a major hack operation on the Islamic state (idiots)," the message said.
Anonymous has waged a long-running campaign against the Islamic State group but stepped up the effort following the attacks last Friday in the French capital.

Book Launch Party: Nejoud Al Yagout's 'Awake in the Game of Pretending' at Dar Hamad Restaurant

Nejoud Al Yagout is a talented poet and author transcending the realms of conformity. Nejoud's interview with Bazaar Magazine in September [

 Awake in the Game of Pretending

"Love is the realm where doves and dragons surrender."

In a world that too often vibrates on the lower frequencies of fear, grief and confusion, love guides mankind to enlightenment. And in awakening, one searches for a more solid place in the human game. Pain and suffering; the cycle of life and death - they appear to be necessary struggles in the quest for self-realization, though perhaps they are not. Who knows? Awake in the Game of Pretending continues the spiritual exploration begun in This is an imprint, connecting readers on a collective scale.

"Al-Yagout takes readers on a spiritual journey that will challenge and inspire... Moving, illuminating verse." - Kirkus Review

One World Actors Centre Presents Around The World in 80 Days

Booking@OneWorldActorsCentre.Com or at the Second Cup in the Village, this Sat 19th November.

RIP Catherine Anastacio

Sad news but young mother-of-two Catherine Anastacio, the beautiful Filipino stewardess who was very ill with lupus, has died in hospital in Kuwait. Her brave and caring friends tried very hard to help by donating blood for her and funds to help Catherine's two young children who are in the Phillipines. I'm hoping someone will set up a GoFund for the children as their mother was their sole supporter. May God watch over your wonderful children.

You may remember this story from my attempt to donate blood [link].
