It was really amazing to see such a great farm in Qatar.

Turkey’s national airline has barred female flight attendants from wearing red lipstick and nail polish, striking a nerve among secular Turks worried the country is becoming more Islamic.
Turkish Airlines, Europe’s fourth-biggest carrier, said the ban was aimed at keeping crews “artless and well-groomed with makeup in pastel tones,” as a natural look improved communication with passengers.
“As a consequence of our current cabin uniforms not including red, dark pink, et cetera, the use of lipstick and nail polish in these colors by our cabin crew impairs visual integrity,” the statement said.
Turkish Airlines declined a request for further comment.
I need to open a new bank accoount. Which is the best bank in Qatar ? I assume all of them will roughly be the same, but stll which has a slight edge (Money transfer, benifits etc)
Five years ago, inflation in Qatar soared into the double digits after the country spent heavily on hosting the 2006 Asian Games. Now, with another government spending spree and an even bigger sports event looming, inflation is on the rise again.
The country of 1.9mn people plans to spend about $140bn to build stadiums, roads, railways, a new airport, a seaport and other infrastructure before it hosts the 2022 soccer World Cup.
Government officials and company executives insist they have learned from the last inflation fallout and will be able to avoid another one, partly because they have given themselves more time to carry out the construction.
Could you suggest the best Italian restaurant in Qatar?

For the workers of Today,
We salute your efforts of every day
On this day you all must get some rest
To give us all your best
I wonder how they tackle their work everyday
To themselves, what all they say
Always filled with confidence they tread
Whenever a new task lies ahead
With a motto “work is worship”
They face smilingly all odds and hardship
They help further our economy
As our country grows in trade and money
A day for them to enjoy the sun
Rather than toil and have no fun
We all thank them on this day from our heart
All year they toil and deserve atleast this REWARD.
Parents of small children who are not traveling this summer, take heart: Qatar will host the Middle East’s first Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic show this June.
The 90-minute performance, which runs from June 13 to June 16, will be hosted at the Qatar National Convention Center, and is set to include Disney’s favorite cast of characters, including the Lion King, Aladdin and Snow White.
At the QNCC, engineers will spend two weeks building ice from scratch using some 48,000 liters of water, said organizers, which include the Qatar Tourism Authority and Feld Entertainment.

A project is underway to link the West Bay area with the Hamad International Airport (HIA) through an undersea tunnel.
This will be one of the major projects to be implemented in the coming years linking Doha south, central Doha and Doha north, Al Sharq reported yesterday.
The project will start from West Bay near to the City Center as a two-lane bridge in both directions towards the sea and then become a tunnel under the sea leading to the airport.
It will meet a second subway starting from the new airport road with a three-lane undersea tunnel leading to New Doha.
The third segment of the project starts from Lusail with three lanes in each direction, with a bridge and undersea tunnel leading to New Doha. All these lanes will join at one point under the sea off the Corniche.
