Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Bill's star power

Bill Clinton evidently expects the likes of Bono, Ali, Queen Rania, Lance Armstrong, Jesse Jackson and Al Gore to solve the world's problems ("Clinton draws on star power to spur global change," Sept. 25 and PghTrib.com).

PETRA can't cover well perhaps not to show all the appropiate clothes she wore?! I agree with yammaha, the queen also didn't focus on the topics also if so she wouldn't care to change the outfit every minute.

This how I am thinking too adamari, she hasn't said anything radical or new on this trip. Aunti is right too, after watching the video, her face is becoming expresionless and mask like

Rania’s latest Slate.com blog entry doesn’t specify for which news outlet the interview was for, his Fareed Zakaria GPS show on CNN or for Newsweek International. Her entry also says she flies home to Jordan on Saturday. Why would she wait a full day to return home, considering her daughters celebrate their birthdays today and Saturday?

I saw part of the Queen Rania interview on the TV this morning --- she speaks beautiful English with a slight accent, is very thin and is gorgeous -

They are from the GAVI alliance meeting. As I mentioned earlier, I expected she would attend as she is heavily involved with their work.

The speech from the Business Development Awards was pretty good, short and sweet but straight to the point. It was also good to hear during the CGI to hear of the progress of the Madrasati scheme. 100 schools in 5 months is excellent imo.

This hasn’t been typical for her. On one previous trip, I recall her doing about one engagement every two days, leaving me wondering what she was doing with her Jordanian taxpayer-funded time in New York.
I'm not sure which trip you are referring to but in trips of this nature there are often meetings that don't come to light until afterwards. Just because she, or any other royal, does not have a public meeting per se doesn't mean they are sat in their hotel suite twiddling their thumbs.

I'm a firm believer in quality over quantity. Whats the point in x number of engagements if they have littlke real meaning or value?

And I know she promoted Jordanian tourism at the World Savers Congress, and she talked about Madarasati at the UN education forum, but I need to see more of her international activities geared toward substantially helping Jordan. Otherwise they come across to me as media and award bait.
Most royals are involved with international organisations on this scale, so imoit's not that unusual that Rania is either. On this trip she really seemed to be emphasise the need for education which imo is an issue that is just as important for Jordan as anywhere else in the world. Only 84% of women can read and write, which is an excellent figure for an Arab country when you compare it to a place like Yemen or Egypt. However compared to 95% for men it shows how much work needs to be done. For example at the CGI she talked about Madrasati and the impact it is having so far.

Exclamation General Reminder

There are plenty of threads devoted to Queen Rania in the Fashion Forum. Let’s refrain from launching into an in-depth fashion analysis here.

It’s difficult keeping track of all these events so please keep your comments strictly on topic.


Thank You
