What kind of leader do think Sheikh Hamdan would have made? Mak and Mo seems to be two different sides of the same coin.

i think hamdan is more conservative (fiscally & socially). i don't think he has the inspiration to be at the helm. i think he is a very good 2nd in command. for all of mo's rogue/out of left field behaviour hamdan is more restrained. part of what has made dxb so successful is mo going off the deep end (but with his brother hamdan holding the safety rope). that is my opinion. they are very yin and yang. they complement each other.

also i think if mo was left unbridled he would've turned dxb into vegas YEARS AGO.

quite nice looking. :D

If it's him, he looks different. I saw a couple of old pictures of him with the polo-loving al Habtoor, handing over a trophy. He looks better here - he's very kind-looking.

HRTV to air Dubai International Racing Carnival HorseRacing TV will provide live coverage of the 11-date Dubai International Racing Carnival at Nad al Sheba racecourse, which will begin on Thursday and conclude with the Dubai World Cup (UAE-G1) program on March 26. Additional dates for the carnival include January 27, February 3, February 10, February 11, February 17, February 24, February 25, March 5, and March 10. HRTV coverage will begin at 12 p.m. EST, with the exception of the Dubai World Cup telecast, which will begin at 9 a.m. EST.

if this is the same feed that is seen by viewers in dubai-there should be some pretty good sheikh watching. usually the boys are there chatting and goofing off. and occasionally mo shows up for a race or two. if you can get hrtv-check it out. :)

Sheikh boosts city aid mission
The Sheikh of Dubai is providing one of his Hercules planes so that Preston's Muslim community can take much-needed medical aid to Indonesia.
Mosques in Preston have been rallying round to raise funds to help those affected by the tsunami disaster which hit South Asia on Boxing Day.
More than £100,000 has so far been raised by Preston's Muslim community and one delegation has already been out to distribute funds directly to those in need. Now, a team from Preston is planning to head out to Indonesia on behalf of the North West Relief Trust which has donated £6,000 to deliver medical aid such as painkillers, ointment and bandages to the devastated region.
Sohail Nawaz, general secretary of the Raza Mosque, on St Paul's Road, is flying to Indonesia on Sunday with Ishaq Ahmed, Mohammed Abdul Samad, Abdul Maroof and Abdullah Valli, who all live in Preston.
The men have paid for flights themselves and were planning to take the medical aid with them on their
mercy mission. Thanks to the generosity of pharmaceutical companies and the public, they have collected three-and-a-half tons of medical equipment.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, has offered them the use of a Hercules transporter to deliver the equipment.
The plane will fly into Heathrow on Sunday before heading for Indonesia.
The team will be met by members of the Indonesian Army who will help them to distribute aid.
Sohail said: "We began ringing around companies to ask for donations or to allow us to buy supplies at trade prices.
"We realised we were not going to be able to carry all the aid with us on the plane, so began looking at alternatives.
"One of the chaps going out with us told us he knew someone in Dubai who was willing to donate the freight costs.
"Our contact spoke to the Sheikh, who responded by giving us a Hercules.
"This mission demonstrates how the Muslim community can come together to the aid of the world, irrespective of race and religion."
The Raza Mosque has collected around £8,000, while Muslim organisation Al-Ansar donated £3,000 and the Aqsa Mosque collected £2,000 towards the mission of mercy.
Mosques in Preston have all pledged a donation.
Ishaq Ahmed, of Argyll Road, Deepdale, said: "We want to take basic medical necessities rather than clothing as other countries and organisations are donating items like this.
"If we get there and we have too much in the way of medical supplies, at least we can donate it to hospitals in the country as they will be able to make use of the equipment and it will not be wasted."

‘Stop nationals from marrying foreign women’
By Salah El Debarki

7 April 2005

FUJAIRAH — The Parents Council of Hamad bin Abdulla Al Sharqi School in Fujairah has urged the Marriage Fund to support mass weddings in Fujairah and to discourage national youth from marrying foreign women mainly because of the prohibitive cost of a wedding. Shaikh Abdulla Al Sharqi said the extravagant spending in marriages had only resulted in problems among youth, often leading to debt traps. The high cost involved in a wedding forced the youth to prefer marriage with foreign women, which would have a negative impact on society, he said, and asked the Marriage Fund to take measures to reverse this trend.

Family and the role of women in child rearing, education and participation in society are very important and of great concern in the UAE. This has been an ongoing discussion for a number of years. It is an interesting look at a society trying to hold onto what they feel is important and coping with the increased influx of ideas and cultures different than their own, a delicate balance.

The UAE Women’s Federation which was established in 1975 under the leadership of Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak addresses several issue of concern regarding marriage and the family.
