The World sleep day is an annual event celebrated March 15 of each year. It aims to educate people about problems related to lack or excess of sleep. The International Day of Sleep aims to alleviate the burden of sleep problems on society by improving the prevention and management of sleep and sleeping troubles.
Sleep is part of our vital needs as well as thirst or hunger. We sometimes tend to forget it and if many people sleep like babies, others suffer from insomnia with significant consequences on their health (mood, muscle fatigue, weight gain, and sexual dysfunction) To raise awareness With regard to sleep disorders, the World Organization for Sleep Medicine organizes a day each year dedicated to this precious aspect of our life.
In any case, the figures show that sleep disorders affect a large segment of the population. Among the population, one person in two has already experienced insomnia and 30% suffer from chronic insomnia. It is obvious that social factors influence this phenomenon: stress, crisis, professional and social demands, and new technologies.
Is lack of sleep, even insomnia, the evil of the 21st century?
In any case, the figures show that sleep disorders affect a large segment of the population. Among the Belgian population, one person in two has already experienced insomnia * and 30% suffer from chronic insomnia. It is obvious that society factors influence this phenomenon: stress, crisis, professional and social demands, and new technologies.
Do our tablets, I-phones and other modern means of communication have a real impact on our sleep?
The delay in any case the possibility of falling asleep. The key to sleeping well is to make sure you separate work and sleep times. But if you stay connected on a computer or mobile phone, your brain has left the office, but it remains mobilized or exciting. Moreover, these technological devices emit a strong luminosity which disturbs your biological clock, giving the impression to the body that it is always the day as night falls.
What are the remedies to apply daily to acquire good sleep hygiene?
First, you need to avoid energy drinks in the second half of the day, as well as tobacco and alcohol. We must get out of the myth that alcohol makes you sleep. It can make you fall at once but once the alcohol is digested, the body is in “mini weaning” and sleep is more fragmented. Another remedy: to separate the work and the beginning of the night by a period of relaxation. The job-dodo is not enough, it is necessary to clearly distinguish these two times by a moment of relaxation.
Does sport help to “empty”?
The sport has the dual function of relaxing and simultaneously mobilizing energy. After physical activity, three to six hours are required to return to a relaxed state. The ideal is to play sports, then relax before going to bed.
The days are only 24 hours. How long does it take to sleep on average per day?
The hours of sleep depend on age. There is no standard schedule. Health problems or mood disorders can occur from less than six hours of sleep a night. To be in shape, it is recommended to target the six-seven hours per night.
* Insomnia does not only define “sleepless nights”. The term includes the difficulties of falling asleep, staying asleep, sleeping and the feeling of not being rested on waking.
What are the types of sleep disorders?
Insomnia is persistent sleep of poor quality. It may mean that you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up without going back to sleep. This is a fairly common problem, especially for women.
Restless legs syndrome
People with restless legs syndrome tend to feel uncomfortable and tingling in their legs while trying to sleep. The discomfort causes a strong desire to move the legs, which eliminates tingling but also makes it difficult to fall asleep. Because of the constant disruption of their sleep, people with restless legs syndrome are often extremely tired during the day. Restless legs syndrome can begin in early adulthood but is more common in middle-aged and older people.
Narcolepsy is a rare sleep disorder that causes uncontrollable daytime sleepiness. It’s much more than just dozing off during a boring lecture. It is caused by a problem in the area of the brain that controls sleep. If you suffer from narcolepsy, you may have sudden and unavoidable sleep bouts, called “sleep attacks,” when you talk to someone, whether you work or even drive, no matter how many sleep you have had the night before.
What we should do: Learn to sleep
What must be done then to cure his insomnia? Daniel Neu, the coordinator of the sleep laboratory at Brugmann University Hospital, advocates cognitive-behavioral therapy. In other words, we must learn to sleep.
At first, it’s about sleeping less to sleep better. Then, patients learn to reclaim their sleep and change behaviors and emotions that were inappropriate.
In the end, you have to learn how to sleep “efficiently”. This does not necessarily mean “long”. Dr. Ossmann insists: “It is wrong to think that it takes 8 hours to sleep well, it is a statistical figure “. There are small and big sleepers. Large sleepers have “filling” phases between their recuperative sleep phases. If his sleep is cut, he may be tired.
Finally, insomnia can be caused by pain, mental disorders or other sleep disorders. There, the diagnosis is done on a case by case basis. There are still other therapies like light therapy that have shown positive effects. All of which is to avoid taking drugs immediately.
Sleep disorders are not inevitable
Uninformed, many people with sleep disorders consider them a fatality, a situation that needs to get used to. More than half of those involved have never talked to a health professional about this problem. This day is an opportunity to inform the public: the attending physician remains the first interlocutor, for sleep as for the rest of health.
World Kidney Day: a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys.
A day to raise awareness
Launched at the initiative of the International Society of Nephrology, World Kidney Day is an opportunity to raise public awareness of the importance of kidney disease, a silent condition whose late diagnosis multiplies the consequences. It is often the case that many of them are only detected at the approach of the terminal stage and, in this case, the use of dialysis or grafting is made compulsory.
Our current lifestyles, unbalanced diet, sedentary lifestyle, are aggravating factors and the increase in the number of patients suffering from diabetes or high blood pressure, causes “mechanically” an increase of the cases of renal insufficiency.
Today, 500 million people worldwide, suffer from kidney disease. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the leading causes of kidney failure in adults. In children and young people, it is most often genetic kidney disease or glomerulonephritis. The progression of kidney disease can lead in some cases to dialysis or transplantation. The treatment of kidney disease represents a very heavy financial burden each year. Only effective treatment can slow the progression of the disease, and reduce its cost both humanly and economically.
More than 500 million people worldwide, nearly one in ten adults, suffer from kidney disease and several million die prematurely each year from cardiovascular complications related to chronic kidney disease (CKD). In developed countries, the number of people requiring dialysis or kidney transplantation is expected to double in the next decade. This is largely due to the very significant increase in the incidence of diabetes and high blood pressure, the main causes of CKD. In developing countries, the majority of people cannot benefit from dialysis and transplantation for financial reasons. Efforts must, therefore, go towards prevention.
The “World Kidney Day” was initiated in 2006 at the initiative of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF). It takes place every year on the 2nd Thursday of March and was celebrated this year on March 14th.
This day aims to draw the attention of people, health professionals and policymakers to the scourge of kidney disease, the current opportunities for screening, diagnosis, and treatment. The goal is to limit the ever-increasing number of patients with CKD and all its socio-economic consequences.
According to the World Kidney Day website, socio-economic and cultural factors also contribute to a burden beyond the proportions of kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease affects 195 million women worldwide and is currently the 8th leading cause of death among women. According to the National Kidney Foundation, 10% of the world’s population is affected by chronic kidney disease and millions of people die each year because they do not have access to affordable treatment. More than 2 million people worldwide are currently receiving dialysis or kidney transplant treatment to stay alive. In people aged 65 to 74 worldwide, it is estimated that more than one in five men and one in four women have chronic kidney disease. With early diagnosis and treatment, it is possible to slow down or even stop the progression of kidney disease.
How to Celebrate?
Of course, the perfect way to celebrate this day is to be healthy and take care of your Kidney.
Have a balanced diet and limit salt
Eating in a balanced way helps to avoid overweight. Obesity is a factor that promotes kidney disease. In addition, salt causes hypertension, an enemy of the kidney. It is therefore strongly advised to limit the consumption of industrial dishes that are often too salty and not to very or very little salt. It is better to opt for fresh rather than frozen products.
Nephrologists also recommend reducing their consumption of meat, fish, and eggs. Excess protein “tires” the kidney and eventually the abyss. Beware of hyper-protein diets!
Fight against a sedentary lifestyle
To preserve your kidneys, it is essential to practice a sporting activity. France Rein advocates avoiding to stay 48 hours without practicing physical activity. It allows, whatever the age, to reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, but also obesity.
Drink enough water
We must drink the quantity of water adapted to our needs. On average, we should drink at least 1.5 liters a day spread over the day. Drinking water makes it easier for the kidneys to work, filtering the blood and evacuating body waste through the urine.
Tobacco causes the deterioration of renal function. This is one of the risk factors for developing kidney disease.
Beware of toxic substances
France Rein does not recommend self-medication. Used in high doses or in the long term, aspirin, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, may be toxic to the kidney same thing for laxatives and diuretics. We must also avoid herbs called “caregivers”, dietary supplements and more generally any product whose composition is not clearly identified.
Renal diseases are called “silent”. They do not manifest themselves by any perceptible symptom. So it’s strongly recommend getting tested, especially when you are affected by diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease or autoimmune disease.
This year’s theme is Kidney Health for Everyone Everywhere. It’s a day of awareness raising and promoting good care of your health and illness.
Quit smoking; its never too late.
Quitting smoking may at first a struggle but the prize for kicking the habit is to add ten years extra to live, it’s worth fighting for.
Started out in 1984, No Smoking Day celebrate annually on every 13th of March as a global health awareness crusade. The very first Smoking Day was held on Ash Wednesday. The primary purpose of this day is to circulate the negative effect of tobacco on our health. In this campaign, it encourages and educates smokers to break the chains of nicotine addiction. Yearly, No Smoking Day has supported a topic with brief and eye-catching phrases. One of the remarkable theme in 2010 “Break Free” and in 2011 “Time to quit” was used to help a smoker to kick the habit.
No Smoking Day was lead by a charity of four full-time staff in London with the same name. In 2011 this was incorporated with the British Heart Foundation and sponsored by a partnership of voluntary and governmental sectors that has concern appreciably in health. No Smoking Day’s most recent President, Duncan Bannatyne OBE (Order of the British Empire) was Scottish businessman, philanthropist, author, TV personality, and anti-tobacco crusader. He was nominated as Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (British Order of Chivalry) for his charitable contributions and generosity. In April 2008, Bannatyne who is an ex-smoker openly took on British American Tobacco at its AGM.
THE EFFECTS OF SMOKING
Smoking tobacco is one of the worst and serious bad routines anyone can be captured by. It causes dangerous effects on health and highly addictives. This habit usually begins when the teenagers due to peer pressure and to look cool, starts to smoke without knowing the dangerous effects of smoking.
From carbon monoxide to nicotine and nicotine to tar, there is no safe chemical in any tobacco products. These chemical substances you breathe not only cause a bad to your lungs but also your entire body and every organ in your system.
The different health consequences of nicotine into our body:
- Nervous Systems – Like heroin, nicotine from cigarettes is addictive and it is difficult to quit. It accommodates the large dosage of nicotine and makes the smoker feel energized. As the effect wears off, you will crave more and feel tired. The result is nicotine withdrawal is when the brain stops getting the nicotine. You may experience the craving for more cigarette smoking, irritable, distressed and tense. It can also cause insomnia, fatigue, and headaches.
- Respiratory Systems – Smokers experience swelling in the tissues and its tiny sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. When you annihilate these alveoli, you have permanently destroyed part of your lungs because it never repairs. You feel tightness, wheeze, and shortness in breathing due to irritation of the lungs and windpipe that can give you mucus and chronic cough. It builds up inflame scar tissue and leads to bodily changes to your windpipe that can make you breathe hard.
Smoker has a higher risk of the following chronic lung diseases:
- a group of lung disease called Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD)
- Emphysema – causing so much damage to the lung’s air sac.
- Chronic Bronchitis, constant soreness in the lining of the bronchial tubes. Short term respiratory congestion and discomfort as your lungs and airways begin to heal from nicotine withdrawal. A positive sign that your respiratory system is recovering when mucus increased production right after you quit smoking.
- Circulatory Systems – or cardiovascular is a system of the organ that allow blood to circle around the body and distribute hormones, nutrients, oxygen, and blood cells that will help in fighting diseases. Smoking raises your blood pressure. It can weaken your blood vessels and heart, puts stress on it and it less able to pump blood. Making the heart work even harder, the carbon monoxide from the cigarette smoke contributes to a lack of oxygen. This increases the risk of heart disease and heart attack. Nicotine also makes smoker’s blood viscous and thick. It can make your heart harder to move it around your body. Glutinous blood will form blood clots that obstruct blood flow to your brain, heart, veins, and down to your legs and feet. This sticky, semi-solid blood damages the fragile blood vessels lining over the period of time. This damage can increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke. The number of white blood cells stays high when you smoke. These cells help us defend our body from infections. An inflated white blood cell count is as an indicator to our body that let you know if you have been injured. Your body is continually fighting against the inflammation is caused by nicotine.
- Digestive Systems – these are the group of organs that help in breaking down the food that enters our body in order to help our circulatory system distribute the nutrients that we need.
Smokers create oral health problems, like mouth ulcers, gum disease and even cancers of the throat and mouth. As soon as you start smoking at a young age, you are more likely to lose your teeth and have cavities. Also, some tobacco smokers have bigger tummy compare to non-smokers and more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a serious illness that leads to heart disease, cataract, blindness, amputation, and kidney failure.
- Integumentary Systems – It includes the skin (largest organ of the body), hair, and nails. The most evident signs of smoking include changes to the structure of your skin. The risk of squamous cell carcinoma (skin cancer) shown in the recent study and increases dramatically.
Smoking increases the probability of fungal nail infections but nails are not immune from the effects of tobacco. Smoker also experiences hair loss, graying, and balding.
- Reproductive Systems – or called as sex organ or genital system which operate together for the sexual reproduction. The genital areas of both men and women can affect the blood flows of the smoker and also lower its sex hormones and sexual desire. Men can decrease sexual fulfillment while women can result in decreasing moisturize, ability to reach orgasm and sexual dissatisfaction.
We pick up many habits from our daily routine and soon it becomes a part of our life. Some habits are good and some can affect your health in a cruel way and even cause demise. It has become very clear how terribly dangerous smoking is in the last few decades. Smokers didn’t even notice that the nicotine they are smoking and taking also affects non-smokers health.
The highlight of the “No Smoking Day” event is to educate the smokers and to help them to quit.
HOW TO QUIT

It is not just a personal resolution. The immunity of people who do not want to be affected by second-hand smoke that led to some new laws and rules that ban smoking in public places in most countries.
Here are some easy plans:
- Decision Plan to Quit – make a list of plan and reason on quitting the habit to stay your goal on focus. Be honest and sincere on your needs. Pick your quit date and this will be your personal commitment. Write down the date, look it every day as your determination get closer.

ICBA VIP Open Day 2019
Mr. Mohamed Dekkak attended the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) VIP open day on March 10, 2019. As an environmentalist, he supports the organization’s initiative to improve the research and development in agricultural productivity and sustainability in marginal and saline environments.
According to him, the grim milestone came a lot sooner than ever since 1987 when the measure was first determined. In other words, people are consuming more and quicker than the world’s biocapacity could deal with. The world is eating up more water and different assets, producing more carbon dioxide into the air and contaminating nature unimaginably. Mr. Dekkak wants everyone to be fully aware of the ways where we can help our environment while helping the people in need.
The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1999. The organization’s main focus is on the issue of salinization and the utilization of saline water intended for irrigated agriculture. The organization is one of the organizations that are helping to find solutions in agricultural productivity and sustainability in marginal and saline environments by advancing the research and development.
The event was participated by HE Dr. Jose Graziano da Silva, Dir. Gen. of the Food and Agriculture, HE Mariam bint Mohammed Saeed, the Minister State for Food Security of the UAE, HE Razan Khalifa Al Mubarak, Managing Dir. of the Environment Agency- Abu Dhabi and the Chairperson of the ICBA Board of directors, HE Dr. Bandar M. H Hajjar, Pres. of the Islamic Dev’t Bank Group. It is celebrated along with a number of ministers from different countries, heads of international organizations and other high ranked dignitaries.
The International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) is a global nonprofit, organization that was founded in 1999, due to the imaginative management of the Islamic Dev’t Bank (IDB), the Org. of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) Fund, the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Dev’t and the Gov’t of United Arab Emirates.
At that time, they identified that there is a growing salinity problem that is affecting the Middle East and North Africa region and hindering their attempt to improve their food and water security. There was a dire need for applied research tackling salinity problems and utilizing saline water for food and feed production, whereas there was no international organization tackling this serious problem. Throughout the first 10 years of the Center’s existence, they implemented many projects that aimed to improve the well-being of poor farmers that have to deal with salinity problem. Along the way we built up a wealth of information and successes, as well as a team of global scientists with extensive internal capacity comprised of a world-class modern research facility As they evolved, so did the global problems related to salinity; the world is daily losing 2,000 hectares to salt-induced degradation, and the marginal areas across the globe are increasing. This is affecting the food and income security of those living of it, as well as impacting the water security of several countries. ICBA’s success and these growing global problems promoted the revision of ICBA’s mandate and expanding its focus from merely focusing on salinity issues, to a broader scope that aims to identify sustainable solutions for food and nutritional security in marginal environments through facilitating access to technology, improved germplasm, plus relevant policies, strategies and programs. ICBA Strategy 2013-2023 clearly identifies its new mandate and the impact they aspire to achieve, and the strategy is available at their website www.biosaline.org.
ICBA and FAO Partnership Agreement
On March 10, 2019, in UAE, Dr. Ismahane Elouafi, Director General of the International Centre for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA) and Dr. José Graziano da Silva, the Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, signed agreements today, growing existing participation between the two institutions on plant hereditary assets, biosaline agriculture and environmental change adaptation on the planet’s marginal environments.
Under this Article 15 agreement, the yield germplasm accumulation stored in ICBA’s gene bank will formally become part of the Multilateral System of Access and Benefit-sharing, adding to the world’s biggest worldwide gene pool of plant hereditary material, accessible to ranchers, plant reproducers and researchers for the maintainable generation of sustenance from plants.
The material in this tremendous worldwide gene pool is traded far and wide at a normal rate of around 1,000 exchanges for each day to help ranchers, plant reproducers and researchers in growing new atmosphere versatile yield assortments to create increasingly nutritious food from plants.
ICBA’s novel gene bank is home to one of the world’s biggest accumulations of germplasm of warmth and salt-tolerant plant species, with more than 14,000 increases of around 240 plant species from in excess of 150 nations and regions of the world, notwithstanding around 250 seed tests of 70 wild plant species from the UAE, the middle’s host nation.
The FAO International Treaty is a key universal lawful instrument for the worldwide protection, manageable use and sharing of the advantages of plant biodiversity, which it does through its different components, most prominently the Multilateral System, the Global Information System, and the Benefit-sharing Fund.
It is additionally the first lawfully restricting global instrument to recognize the gigantic commitment of indigenous networks and ranchers to the advancement and the board of yield biodiversity and calls upon all Contracting Organizations to ensure Farmers’ Rights.
The centre has so far executed projects in more than 30 nations in the Middle East, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus.
As a result of the increase in the demand for fresh water due to the increase in the population, attention was directed to the seawater to be exploited in agriculture, so there have been many studies on the possibility of planting plants using salt water has been issued many of the results in this area and the classification of plants based on this type of Water for irrigation.
In order to use saline water to irrigate the plants and trees, the first step is to know the saline concentration in the water so that the plants are classified accordingly, and some of the plant/tree varieties that are tolerant to salinity are as follows:
- Nile Tamarisk (Tarfa)
- Mangrove (Qurm)
- Jujube (Sidr)
- Ghaf (Ghaf)
- Firestick Plant (Kalkal)
- Drumstick Tree (Shu)
- Wild Pistachio (Butum)
- Umbrella Thorn (Samar)
- Tecoma (Farfar)
- Salam (Salam)
- Gum Arabic Tree (Sunt)
- Abal (Abal)
This does not mean that the issue of carrying the plant/tree for salinity alone is sufficient, but that the quality of the soil also has its role, there are some types of soils are unable to tolerate salinity becomes bad and cannot be cultivated in this, which leads to the damage of plants even if they have characteristics that make them from plants tolerant of salinity.
ICBA’s work and successes
Throughout the years, ICBA has been very successful in identifying crops, technologies, and best management practices to improve agricultural, productivity and profitability in saline environments. We have carried a botanical survey to collect and conserve native species especially in the UAE. ICBA is working on several technology developments as well as the use of non-conventional and conventional water (such as treated wastewater, saline, seawater, and industrial water); land and water management technologies; remote sensing and modeling for climate change adaptation. We have worked extensively on identifying and promoting integrated production systems that practice sustainable management of available resources. We focus on community development, whether it is in identifying and encouraging certain crops, or irrigation technologies, or on-farm practices and best drainage system. The local community is a partner and this helps sustain the gains from the improved production systems. Their modern research and training facilities in Dubai include a gene bank of salt-tolerant germplasm with over 13,000 accessions representing over 225 species; laboratories for central analytics; plant genetic resources and agronomy and plant physiology. Thirty-five hectares of the Center’s 100-hectare research and demonstration site has been developed for irrigated agriculture utilizing saline water, seawater or treated wastewater. We have modern greenhouses and a shade house providing climate-controlled conditions for plant experiments and the transfer of plants between environments. Building capacity and sharing knowledge is another important part of our work in the past and something we want to expand in the future as we aim to become a knowledge hub and center of excellence. ICBA has carried extensive training programs on plant production systems in marginal lands, soil and land use management, socio-economic assessments, and water resources management both at its headquarters and in partner countries. ICBA has worked across many countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA); Gulf Cooperation Council countries; Central Asia and the Caucasus; South and South East Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa. In all of their projects, they make sure that national partners are joint owners in the development and use of the research outputs so leading to the adoption of recommendations, analyses and best-management practices for land, soil, and water in marginal environments.

Leaving the Echo Chamber: Overview
In pop culture, the term ‘echo chamber’ is a nickname for indirect news media and their specialist channels, which are strengthened by a closed network managed and administered by private sources, enterprises, and government. It is additionally an illustration for the recorded predominance of capital and the social, cultural and political frameworks that manage its entrance, generation and delivery. Most substantially, the ‘echo chamber’ is an area where sound hits and resonates, where remembrance and creative ability reverberates through the surface, across time and space.
Leaving the Echo Chamber looks into putting into the discussion a progression of incitements on how one may renegotiate the structure, shape, and capacity of this chamber so as to move to the multiplication of the echoes inside, such vibrations speaking to the immense types of human creation—its traditions and beliefs.
SB14 asks visitors to think about various concerns. What did it mean to call for different images when the news is controlled by domineering sources? How would we grow our stories by recognizing what has been covered up or deleted? How might we ponder our own cultural narratives in a period when such a large number of people have been compelled to trust that they should surrender their very own organization to the domination that exists and rule our reality?
Artists at Sharjah Biennial 14 are given the chance to share narrations that echo in various ways, along these lines making new surfaces for a variety of chambers that uncover various and multifaceted methods for survival, connection and keeping collective humankind.

Islam may seem exogenous or intense in the present world because religion dominates the lives of Muslims who make no difference between the civil and the religious.
Muslims spread their culture and traditions all over the world. It is highly influenced by Persia, Mongol, Turkic, Indian, Berber and Indonesian values. Today, some Islamic practices and customs are the result of the consolidation of local and Muslim beliefs.
