Aysha Taryam
A society between Fake News and WhatsApp knowledge
Published on February 26, 2017 | Opinion
Donald Trump’s inauguration brought with it the term most used by this president and his office yet. The term ‘Fake News’ has been used by Trump and his team to oppose, debunk or slam any question they do not wish to answer. For the sake of clarification, this term means the spreading of false information that is manipulated to look like credible journalism mostly made possible and aided by social media. We have witnessed the leader of the Free World accuse prominent news agencies of falsifying information yet while viewers gawked at Trump’s administration the truth remains that most people around the world cannot distinguish between what is real news and what is fake.

Suffering is not indispensable to the understanding of reality. Neither is it enriching. Nor does it chasten us. It is sheer agony. The unquestionable geniuses of the literary world have always tried to reduce that pain, often created by us, by romanticising the whole concept of suffering. I too got impressed by their fictional war against that pain because I read their words and we are what we read.

Fresh air in French politics
Published on May 26, 2017 | Opinion

The victory of pro-Europe progressive Emmanuel Macron in the French presidential election halted the march of the Europhobe reactionaries on the continent, triggered by Britain’s vote to exit the European Union (EU). Macron demonstrated his loyalty to the European project by asking for the EU anthem, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy to be played as he celebrated his election at the Louvre Museum.

The world is facing a changing global reality. Oil prices continue to lag, and leading international economists like Morgan Stanley say prices will fall further before they can begin to rise. Additionally, global economic activity will soon feel the effects of efforts to reduce global climate change. This challenging situation places the UAE at a unique juncture to accelerate its economic transformation efforts while offsetting the impact of shrinking hydrocarbon returns.

Integrating Emirati youth in the Federal National Council
Posted on October 3, 2016 | Opinion
Earlier this week, the #NationalYouthDialogue was launched to invite young people across the UAE to share their opinions and suggestions on what the Government could do to empower and heighten their role in the shaping of the country’s future. Emirati youth continue to be presented, on a daily basis, with new opportunities that enable them to excel in different institutions and across different fields. It is important, however, to place more emphasis on increasing Emirati youth’s civic engagement in the country, particularly through the Federal National Council, by giving them a voice within the federal authority itself. Promoting the importance of Emirati youth’s civic engagement will, in return, strengthen their role in the building of their country’s future.

What Emirati men can learn from Emirati women

Women Studies — An Integral Part of Educational System

If you have been part of debates on gender equality, I am sure that you have come across the statement, “Women have all their rights now, what more do they want?”. While it may seem that women have acquired their basic human rights, reality proves otherwise. The back story behind attaining those rights is so dense. It showcases the struggle and the need for the world to learn the history of discriminating against women in order to understand why the fight for gender equality is far from over.

A hairy hoot
Posted on February 13, 2014 | Panorama
“Please stop moving,” she said with gritted teeth, her patience clearly running out. I didn’t care though. She wasn’t the one in absolute agony. My legs were crossed so tightly and nails dug deep into the arm rests but that didn’t stop my head suddenly flinching from the pain as I yelped. She sighed loudly and undid the braid once more. This was the third time in a row that she has been braiding the same piece of hair. But when I say braid, I mean really yanking the hair practically out of the root to make sure it stands the test of time.

Strolling out
Posted on September 16, 2016 | Opinion
Today is the day I take my six month  old twins out for the first time on my own. I decide to go to the Galarie Lafayette to shop. Very daring for my first trip, my friends think. I feel optimistic and proud of myself as we take the elevator and walk to the bus stop five minutes away.

The Temple Run
Posted on October 17, 2014 | Panorama
It was just another day. Strolling back towards what I called home for this month. It’s more of a house. There seemed to be no kind of emotional attachment. Rather I might have wanted to distance myself from it. For it was empty of all the love, craziness, and long sleepless fun nights I spent back home. Walking through that door made me homesick. Literally sick. It’s not that I didn’t like the girls there; on the contrary I saw many potential friendships.

Two years and thirty plus, slightly melodramatic student drama scenarios and fabulous food related articles later, my time at university in the UAE has officially expired. I am hectically trying to convince myself it is a lie and I will be in Dubai forever and ever, just not particularly consolidated in terms of legitimacy when the Emirates flight reminders flash up every other day! I predict as soon as I am in Scottish airspace cue an extreme crying face x 1000 and induced S.A.D (seasonal affective disorder) and potentially a case of vitamin D deficiency.

The UN Security Council appears to be headed for US-engineered military intervention to root out militants linked to Al Qaeda who have seized control of Mali’s northern region. On Friday, the Security Council called on the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) – a bloc of West African countries – to submit a detailed plan for military intervention in Mali. Presumably, the plan would call for establishment of a military force that will be supported by the African Union and the United Nations.

New York’s special place in the world of cinema and television is universally acknowledged. The annual Tribeca Film Festival is a shining example of the city’s appetite for quality films. Directors, actors, journalists and movie buffs flock to this neighbourhood of lower Manhattan every year to welcome and celebrate the brightest and the best in moviemaking, television production, and now, in ever-increasing measure, virtual reality (VR) and interactive programming.
