Yanni Live In Doha – World Without Borders
Yanni Live in Doha is a musical concert of cultural significance. There is a very short list of artists who can be recognized the world over by merely their first names. Among the top ones on that list is musician and composer Yanni. Yanni’s musical genius transcends cultural boundaries. He is famous for staging mega-concerts at the world’s most historically significant venues, such as Greece’s Acropolis. He also performed at China’s Forbidden City and India’s Taj Mahal. Both of these concerts were broadcast on national television, reaching an estimated audience of 250 million according to Yanni's website. February, he released “Truth of Touch,” his 24th album. (He is also renowned for his four live concert videos.)
Health Council revives talks of new stricter anti-tobacco law, touches on smoking in malls
Qatar officials have offered more details about a stricter new anti-smoking law that should be implemented “soon.” The law, which was supposed to pass last year, will now reportedly empower malls to fine those found smoking on their premises.
It it already illegal in Qatar to smoke in closed spaces, and the fine for doing so ranges from QR200 to QR500. But enforcement of the law has been lax, and residents have long complained about people flouting the rules. Officials say they hope the new law will give anti-tobacco efforts here more teeth.

Abu Dhabi man cleared of kidnapping fiancee so she can't marry anyone
Mar 5, 2013
ABU DHABI // An unemployed Emirati who kidnapped his fiancée after her mother decided to wed her to another man, was cleared by the Criminal Court yesterday.
The man in his early twenties spotted his 16-year-old beau alone in her mother's car in a mall car park with the engine running. So he jumped in the driver's seat and took off with her.
He did so after the girl's family accepted a proposal of marriage from a relative after giving the man two years to find a job, which he failed to do.
The girl's brother and father spotted the pair driving off and called police after they tried in vain to stop the car.
I am interested in hearing some new suggestions. My wife and I have recently decided Sharq Village is our favorite place. What about you?
Test proves 12-year-old Indian girl has higher IQ than Einstein
A 12-year-old Indian-origin girl in UK has stunned everyone after she scored an incredible 162 on her IQ test - even higher than Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
Neha Ramu, daughter of an Indian doctor couple, achieved a score of 162 on a Mensa IQ test - the highest score possible for her age.
The score puts her in the top one per cent of brightest people in the UK and means she is more intelligent than physicist Hawking, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and scientist Albert Einstein, who are all thought to have an IQ of 160.
"Neha scored 162 on the Cattell IIIB test, putting her within the top one per cent of people in the country," a spokesman for British Mensa said.

Our world needs a change in leadership.
I'm not talking about the divide between Republicans and Democrats. I'm not talking about the UN or the influence of U.S. foreign policy, or the power struggles in the Middle East. At the end of the day, all of these may end up being less important than a fundamental division of power that goes back to the beginning of the human race.
What I'm talking about here is the gender balance: the distribution of power and leadership between men and women.

DOHA: The allegedly long and cumbersome procedures for obtaining a visit visa to the UK have angered several Qatari citizens, triggering calls for urgent action to address this issue.
They have called on the Qatari government to force the British authorities to simplify the procedures. “The British (visiting Qatar) are getting visas on arrival at the airport but they are making us go through complicated procedures and interviews and forcing us to pay too much money,” lamented a citizen.
“While British authorities are humiliating the Qataris with personal interviews and too many requirements and high fees their citizens are getting the Qatari visa on arrival at the airport.

a child born with HIV has been cured!!
Doctors in the US have made medical history by effectively curing a child born with HIV, the first time such a case has been documented.
The infant, who is now two and a half, needs no medication for HIV, has a normal life expectancy and is highly unlikely to be infectious to others, doctors believe.
Though medical staff and scientists are unclear why the treatment was effective, the surprise success has raised hopes that the therapy might ultimately help doctors eradicate the virus among newborns.
