They discussed matters relating to strong and broad-based relationship that unites the two countries, and pledged to continue the close cooperation in the areas of security and commercial activity.

He said the ministry's goals include securing the interest of both the employee and the employer. Al Dhahiri gave the statement on the sideline of the Workers' Marathon, organized by the

efforts in Libya. General Shaikh also met US Defence Secretary Robert Gates and US Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. In those meetings, he reaffirmed the UAE's strong commitment to a stable and peaceful Middle East, a goal firmly shared by the United States, and lauded the UAE-US strategic and military

Mohammed bin Zayed attended the Royal Wedding in London

Al Ain Times News:

Prince William Becomes Duke and Kate become The Duchess of Cambridge and delayed their Honeymoon. His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces attended in Westminster Abbey the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton on 29th April. The event was graced by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of The United Kingdom and her husband His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales and the Crown Prince of the United Kingdom Prince Charles, the royal family guests, Heads of States, other Crown Princes, international celebrities and senior officials. The Abu Dhabi Crown conveyed the regards of Sheikh Khalifa to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, Couples and the members of the royal family. Couples of hour ahead of the event Queen Elizabeth granted the title of Duke of Cambridge to Prince William, while Kate Middleton became Duchess of Cambridge immediately after the wedding. "I will," the future king and queen each pronounced solemnly, before William put a ring fashioned from a nugget of Welsh gold on her finger and the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams pronounced them man and wife. A sea of hundreds of thousands of people waved Union Jack flags in the streets outside while 1,900 guests including footballer David Beckham and singer Elton John were invited to the service in the abbey. Two billion people a third of the world's population are expected to have watched Diana's eldest son wed the commoner he began dating at St Andrews university in Scotland eight years ago. It is Britain's richest display of pageantry since that wedding 30 years ago and offers Britain's royal family a chance at renewal after Charles and Diana's traumatic public split before her tragic death. About 5,500 street parties are expected across Britain on Friday, including in the Scottish university of St Andrews, where William and Kate met, and in the bride's home village of Buckle bury. More than 8,500 journalists and technical staff are covering the wedding for a global audience. Newlyweds William and Kate took the world by ¬surprise yesterday when they announced a delay in their honeymoon. In an unexpected move, Clarence House said Wills would be back at work at his RAF Search and Rescue base in Anglesey, North Wales. And rather than jetting overseas, the couple are spending their Bank Holidays weekend privately in the UK.

US forces finally found Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden not in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan's border, but in a million-dollar compound in an upscale suburb of Pakistan's capital, with his youngest wife. A small US team conducted a helicopter raid on the compound on Sunday afternoon and after 40 minutes of fighting, bin Laden and an adult son, one unidentified woman and two men identified as the courier and his brother were dead, officials said, and Obama was preparing a television address to the nation. Bin Laden was finally found more than 9-1/2 years after the 2001 attacks on the United States after authorities discovered in August 2010 that the courier lived with his brother and their families in an unusual and extremely high-

security building, officials said. "Justice has been done," Obama said in a hastily called, late-night White House speech revealing the death of the elusive head of the militant group behind a series of bloody attacks in cities across the world. Osama bin Laden, a scion of one of Saudi Arabia's wealthiest families, became the grim apostle of a strain of Islamic radicalism that exalted violence against non-believers, and the leader of a terrorist network that launched repeated attacks in the West, most spectacularly in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001.

His death, confirmed by officials in Pakistan, was a huge symbolic blow to al Qaeda, which has been beaten back but is still a threat in many countries. The reports of this news have been provided by International Media sources. The body of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was taken to Afghanistan after he was killed and was later buried at sea according to New York Times.

Gaddafi's son killed in an airstrike

Al Ain Times News:

According to the the Libyan government and international media sources it has been reported that Colonel Gaddafi's youngest son, Saif al-Arab, and three of his grandsons were killed by a Nato airstrike on a villa where the Libyan leader was also staying. Gaddafi, the Sunday Times reports. Saif alArab kept a lower public profile than his elder brother Saif alIslam. Regime spokesman, Mussa Ibrahim, was in doubt that Colonel Gaddafi had been targeted, telling reporters: "This was a direct operation to assassinate the leader of this

country. "The leader with his wife was there in the house with other friends and relatives. The leader himself is in good health. He wasn't harmed." The streets of the eastern city of Benghazi were filled with the throng of excited revolutionaries and people who hailed the death of Gaddafi's son, a Press TV correspondent reported on Sunday. With the front line mired in a stalemate, the Libyan revolutionaries were in need of something to celebrate and they finally celebrated the incident, which entered the Libyan war into a new phase. Many in Benghazi took his words as a sign of the Libyan dictator's growing desperation and the revolutionaries were in no mood to negotiate.

Birthrate of premature babies at 10% in UAE

Al Ain Times News:

`Wrong lifestyle leads to GERD'

It is a serious infection that every parent fears, whether they are here in the UAE, or anywhere else around the world; a fear that their baby could suffer from lung infection. Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) is one such lung related infection which occurs in premature babies, and is the leading cause of mortality in prematurely born babies. Every year on average 12,000 babies are born in Dubai, with hospitals such as Dubai Hospital delivering over 4,000 each year, and it is estimated that 10% of babies born in typical Dubai Hospitals are premature. RSV is a deadly infection, and one that doctors are tackling head on. In order to address this, the 2nd Annual Protect forum was held in Athens on the 24th of March, the forum attended by neonatologists from across the Middle East; focused on sharing and enhancing treatment options for prematurely born babies. This platform was initiated to educate neonatal specialists in the latest treatment options to protect premature babies from lung infections, such as RSV. According to Statistics: In 2009 there were 467 premature babies born in Dubai Hospital, and each one has a chance to be infected by RSV, most commonly through physical contact. Touching, kissing, and shaking hands with an infected person can spread RSV. The disease spreads from person to person through contact with contaminated tiny droplets or objects that the droplets have touched. While for older individuals RSV can be relatively harmless, leading to mild, cold-like symptoms in adults and older healthy children, It can be more serious in young babies, especially to those in certain high-risk groups, such as prematurely born babies. Remarking on the event, Dr Mohammad Howidi, consultant pediatrician from Mafraq Hospital, Abu Dhabi said; "Expectant parents should be aware that there are now medication options such as the Palivizumab treatment which can effectively immunize a premature baby from the RSV lung infection. We have been sharing these best practice treatments with neonatal specialists from throughout the Middle East during the course of this forum." During the forum, a wide range of doctors from the Middle East, including professionals and experts from the UAE attended the event to tackle key lung infection issues through a program of lectures and discussions. Dr. Howidi added "RSV is a virus that remains one of the most serious infections that can befall a premature baby. It is heartening to know that so many doctors want to come together to tackle the issue." The 2nd Protect forum was supported and sponsored by Abbott International, Middle East region.

UAE is among countries severely affected by Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), a disease that affects the human food pipe, due to unhealthy lifestyles. The incidence of the disease has increased in the past few years, according to the Emirates Gastroenterology Society. "The wrong lifestyles followed in the UAE, especially the intake of oily and spicy food, have increased the incidence of this disease in the past few years," said Dr. Mariam Al Khatery, President of Emirates Gastroenterology Society. "Obesity is one major reason for GERD complications, especially when it is compounded by lack of regular exercise and sedentary habits. Many other diseases related to diabetes, heart, liver and kidney may lead indirectly to GERD, because they cause a delay in the digestion process, especially if the patient sleeps immediately after meals which can lead to reflux," Serious complications of GERD include inflammation

and narrowing of the esophagus (food pipe), ulcers and bleeding as well as chronic heartburn. "Cancer can be one result of GERD complications because of the changes of the oesophageal lining in response to continued acid irritation of the oesophageal cells. Moreover, doctors cannot always explain why one person gets cancer and another does not. However, there is strong association between GERD and oesophageal cancer," said Prof Dr. Emad Al Rahmani, consultant in Gastroenterology and

advanced therapeutic endoscopy at Gulf Diagnostic Center Hospital, Abu Dhabi. Oesophageal cancer is a disease in which dangerous cells form in the tissues of the food pipe and may cause difficulty in swallowing which in turn causes bleeding or anemia. Dr Al Rahmani further explained that oesophagitis is an inflammation and swelling of the food pipe usually caused by acidic contents in the stomach that are pushed back up into the pipe, and this has been linked to both oesophageal and laryngeal cancer.

Amnesia Patient recognized after 9 months...

Al Ain Times News:

The Dubai Police has identified an Italian who spent nine months at Port Police Station after being diagnosed with amnesia. The man was first found swimming near Palm Jumeirah. Major Ahmed Al Merri, Director of Criminal Investigation Department, told press that the police patrols had found an unidentified man in weak condition after he reached the shore. When the police asked his whereabouts, he failed to give any information. The police assumed that he lost his memory and took him to a specialized doctor who confirmed this ailment.

The police published his photos on newspapers and sent his fingerprints and DNA sample to the Interpol with focus to certain countries, including Greece, Italy and Cyprus as his features were similar to those nationalities. The man was later transferred to Al Amal Psychiatric Hospital, where he received treatment. This step helped him to refresh his memory and he remembered his name as Andrea Biakora. He said he came to Dubai on visit visa and airport records confirmed that Andrea arrived on August 1 last year. Brigadier Khalil Ibrahim

Al Mansouri, Director of the General Department of Criminal Investigation, honored the Italian national in the presence of a representative from the consulate and his brother who came to the Dubai to see him. The Dubai Police would bear his return expenses . He said we gave top priority to this case as per instructions of Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police, who ordered to give special care to humanitarian cases.

Light Colored clothes are IN...!

Al Ain Times News:

Light-colored clothing reflects light and dark-colored clothing absorbs it. The more heat that is absorbed the hotter the clothing is and the hotter you are. Furthermore, light-colored clothing looks softer and cooler. Color and Weave Along with its color, the weave of your clothing will determine how hot or cold you are. Clothing should be constructed so that the heat escapes from the body rather than trapped. Cotton and linen are the ideal conductors of heat, which is why summer clothing is usually made from these materials. A weave that is open allows the free circulation of air, making this clothing much cooler than something

constructed of firm, close weaves. When air can't escape, you will perspire and your clothing will get soaked with sweat. Avoid Dark Colors According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are the top choice for hot weather. Cotton is breathable material. Linen absorbs sweat and then quickly dries. When the heat index creeps up, choose cotton or linen fabric in light colors. If you opt for dark clothing, it will absorbs the heat of the sun and actually turn into heat. If you wear black, expect to get brutally hot because it's the darkest color of all.

Light Colors and Cooling Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothes are the best for promoting the absorption of sweat. You stay cooler because more air passes over your body. Wearing a Light-colored hat will further limit sun exposure and keep you cooler.

The secret of looking cool and fresh in summer lies in the cleansing routines. You should never go to bed with makeup on. Women with oily skin can use yogurt that will keep their pores intact and won't allow them to open as this may lead to creating of pimples due to dirt and extreme UV light exposure. Where as dry skin should be protected from getting extra dry and should always be maintained by intake of water as well as by application of homemade cleansers of cucumber juice and almond paste.

It's Summer time girls and surely you are planning vacations with family and friends. But summer could be a dangerous time for our face skin. Heat, wind, dust, and excessive sun exposure, can easily damage its delicate cells and pores. In the summer, our skin needs especially careful and thorough care, whenever we are choosing makeup, creams, soaps, and also - food that we place on our plates! So along with planning your trips do plan up something for your skin as well. Continue to drink lots of water, even though you may not be as thirsty.

As a working girl ( not women yet ! ) many a times I don't have time to look after myself to a great extent. As a news reporter it's not easy to maintain your daily schedule in your own way. And thus a girl like me would end uploosing everything to her tiredness. And who would go in for experiencing more pain when it comes to doing your underarms- so the easy solution a girl like me would go in for would be waxing it away or rather get it epilated. But when I heard of SILKOR I thought of trying it and I was very excited when I heard about laser hair removal. The solution to get rid of the tiring procedure that one has to follow every time, I was spontaneously taken off by the suggestion from Ms. Feyrouz the Branch Manager at Al Ain Branch of SILKOR and thought of giving it a try. Any sort of doctor's appointment makes me nervous. Giving control over to someone else is really not my thing and makes me uncomfortable. But at SILKOR I was amazed at the hospitality and the way they comforted me both before and after the treatment. I was asked of any medical

allergies that I am prone to and after filling up- the information form I was told about the number of sessions I have to undergo to finally do my under arms. Miss Joelle was the one who worked on me. So she asked me to head towards the treatment room where she examined the area thoroughly and then applied an anesthetic cream which was cold and transparent. I was then asked to wear opaque plastic goggles.... This made me think of the pain that I am going to face but to my surprise I had nothing to experience on the bad scale. It was all done without me releasing it. To be honest girls, It was not at all painful and there are measures that one could follow during the treatment is

done to not feel the pain. It took at least 10 minutes to get over the treatment and then I was out! After the 1st session I was given some guidelines that are to be followed for a better treatment. For instance: I should not expose this area to the sun as it would harm the pores of the skin that due to laser get opened for a certain time. I was also asked not to use perfumes or roll-ups that contain alcohol. Silkor ­ Laser Hair Removal truly worked for me and I hope it works for you too... Try from a range-full of services provided and experience a painless treatment!

Abu Dhabi marks its space

mobile satellites into orbit to provide voice and date communication services. Dubai's DubaiSat1 is a remote-sensing satellite launched in July 2009. The Emirates Institution for Advanced Science and Technology which launched the spacecraft announced its plans to send another satellite DubaiSat-2 I in 2012. "I would like to express my pride and gratitude during this moment of achievement," said Jassim Mohamed Al Zaabi, Chief Executive Officer of Yahsat. "This success is the direct result of the unwavering vision, dedication and hard work of our leadership, Mubadala, the UAE Armed Forces and the entire Yahsat team. As a result of this work, we have not only stepped into space, but have taken a significant stride in driving economic diversification and progress with our partners across the UAE. "Over the next six to eight weeks, the satellite will be operational," Al Zaabi said in an interview with Khaleej Times from the launch site in Kourou. Giving details on the spacecraft, he said that Y1A has two main segments -- military and government, and commercial services. The commercial segment includes telecasting and data transmission services. For the military services, the chief executive said, "We have signed an agreement with the UAE Armed Forces to offer voice and data services." On the range of services to be offered to the government, he said, "The satellite will connect the UAE embassies and diplomatic missions abroad, apart from linking oil rigs and other installations and the government facilities in remote areas."

Abu Dhabi has stepped into space as its first satellite, which would provide military, commercial as well as civilian communication, was successfully launched on Saturday. The Ariane 5 rocket carrying Y1A of Yahsat, a unit of Abu Dhabi's investment arm the Mubadala Development Company, lifted off from the European Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana, at 1.37am Abu Dhabi time on Saturday, a company statement said.

as government entities have been pitching in with various activities over the last few days as their mark of respect for the mother earth.

Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC) Director General, inaugurated the `Creativity Fingerprint painting Exhibition' organized by Al Asayel School at the Abu Dhabi National Theatre. The exhibition showcases 50 artworks created by students, teachers and parents; while the supervisor of the event participated with another 10 paintings. The exhibition general scope was to illustrate the genuine national heritage related to the land and the marine cultural assets as well as the local environment scenery. Al Khaili said that this attention given to artistic talents is part of our priorities and the expression of our belief in the importance of refining their flair as this will positively impact academic achievement of the students and contributes to the development of the student's artistic feeling, self confidence and personality.

The hotline was opened to the public a few months ago, and six agents are on hand to field education queries and complaints from school pupils, teachers and administrators. Call centre operator Mohammed Ezat listened patiently to the complaint of one anxious pupil before logging it, along with the caller's name, telephone number and e-mail address. "Those details are confidential," he said. "We need them because we don't always have an immediate answer and get back to them." All queries - about job vacancies, examination queries, feedback on education initiatives, problems with school services and facilities, or complaints against teachers are received and resolved by the centre in five to 10 days. Ahmed Fawzi, enterprise solutions consultant at the ministry, screens the calls and monitors the response of the agents.

Ministry of Education receives 500 Calls

He added that such an event would strengthen the ties between the students' families and a platform for all to meet and exchange ideas and opinions on education and the challenges lying ahead of us. He also valued the organization of such events which are a beautiful expression of the positive link between students and their school. Latifa Al Hosani, Al Asayel School principal said: " The oil painting project was born in 2005/2006 academic year and was the idea of one of the students' mothers who is an artist. She volunteered to teach oil paintings to our

students in the Nature and Heritage theme. We feel so proud of our children creations and the level of proficiency they reached in this field". The students training program was initiated by Ayesha Al Suweidi, head of the Mothers Council Art Committee. Ayesha is an artist who first thought of teaching painting techniques and the first stage was to find the talented students and introduce them to the world of drawing basics and coloring techniques as well as searching for inspiring ideas and themes.

"The interaction with the caller is not a rehearsed script," said Mr. Fawzi, who trains the agents with mock sessions. "No matter how insignificant or out of our scope the issue may be, we take down the information and explain what can be done," he said. Issues that are legal or criminal in nature are referred to the legal department, or the caller is asked to file a police complaint. Mr. Fawzi says there is a lack of awareness about the call centre's functions. "You cannot call the centre and say you have a problem

with a colleague who has a loud voice. We are concerned with educationrelated issues, not personal problems." Amal Ismail, an Emirati parent of a student at a public school, said many parents were unaware of the ministry's service. "It should be publicized better," she said. Ms.Ismail also believes that before one calls with complaints, the school should be approached first. "Sometimes children do not speak the truth, so before the matter is taken to the higher authorities, parents should try to sort it out at school."
