Today, March 6 we commemorate the Arabs national attire to reflect on those memorable events.
Emirati clothing symbolizes identity and harmony. It is one important part of Arab history. They show a lot of importance to their diversity and customs.
These attires have been worn for hundreds of years by the time that desert-dwelling nomads called Bedouins inhabited the Arab countries. Bedouins nomadic culture was eminent for congeniality and respect for women.
National Dress Day of Arabic Clothing for Men:
A long white dress called Kandura, thawb, thobe or dishdasha is the primary attire and costume for men of Arabian Gulf including UAE. It is a long sleeved, ankle-length and loose-fitting garment designed for comfort during hot weather. In winter, Kanduras change in color mostly in darker shades. Different Gulf countries have their own twist of style, for examples, the kanduras in UAE has no collar and embroidery in the sleeves. The length of this white robe represents the status of the wearer. The longer the length, the higher status that it represents in wealth and royalty. Shorter length represents humility and worn by the typical Arabs.
The Ghutrah or sometimes they called it – kufiya/keffiyeh is a headscarf worn by Arab men. In other Arab countries, it was known as shemagh. The white and checkered red colors are most used and represent their status and importance. Made from squared cotton cloth and draped over the head. These scarves provide protection from the harsh ray of sunlight, dust, and sands.
The black rope tied in ghutrah is called Agal (iqal, egal or igal). The bedouins originally used this to tie the camels’ feet when traveling mostly at night.
Ghafiyah is a Muslim prayer covered by ghutrah headscarf. They are embroidered and not visible to the naked eye.

The Abaya is a long, sophisticated classic cloak worn by women. This traditional flowy, clothing is black in color and it covers the whole body except the eyes, hands, and feet. The reason why it was color black is to protect and cover the inner clothing of the women. But in the midst of modern glam, Arab women of today customize their abaya with colorful embroideries around the collars and sleeves which adds a twist to their look.
The Hijab is a head scarf or veil used to cover the hair, neck, ears and some part of the head. Some Arab women also use Gafaaz to hide their faces and hands as well.

Let us all remember the value of Language by celebrating National Grammar Day. Today, March 4 was set to raise awareness and appreciation of using correct grammar and maybe simply a good break to spank those individuals who cannot make a good sentence right. Regardless of whether you are new to drafting notes or reading, or a master wordsmith, the significance of Grammar can’t be downplayed, particularly on Grammar Day!
Historical Background of Grammar Day
Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar founder, Martha Brockenbrough is tired of seeing the word manhandled and battered and just could not tolerate another case of the modest harmless language being dealt with ineffectively in her essence. At least not when she’s around.
So it was then that she made a decision that every single good word – noun, verb, adverb, and the adjective is worthy of a time when individuals stand for their rights and would not enable them to be treated badly. No longer would punctuations be lost, overlooked, or omitted. No longer would we discover commas have forgotten and proper nouns in lower case. Gone are those days, and along these lines she authored “Things that make us [sic]” to aid in spreading the news about poor language structure and eventually appointed National Grammar Day in 2008.
As per the Global Language Monitor, the assessed number of words in the English language is 1,025,109. There is some discussion over that number, yet it is careful to state it is more than a million.
Grammar or the study of language or English structure is an essential aspect of communication because the incorporation or avoidance of particular grammatical components can totally change the sense of a sentence. Tell us how you react upon seeing signs full of grammatical errors?
Point is, regardless of the places you go or what you accomplish professionally, wrong grammar is an issue that we as a whole should know about. A few people may see that grammar is a collection of rules for language, however, it is a framework for understanding language. Understanding the usage and structure causes us to see each other better and can push us to study new languages.
Observing Grammar Day
National Grammar Day is celebrated throughout the U.S.A every year on the fourth of March.
Straightforward and basic, all you need to do to observe Grammar Day is put some conscious effort to make your sentences grammar proof. Think about your English lessons and grammar exercises from elementary school and reassess your sentences to guarantee that the idea you intend to send is in sync with the note you are sending. Those you are speaking with will value it, and those of us who crush our teeth whenever we see language structure inappropriately utilized will have one less motivation to see the dental specialist.
Do your best to practice correct grammar and use #NationalGrammarDay to post via web-based networking media.
Wildlife has an intrinsic value and contributes to human well-being and sustainable growth through many aspects: ecological, scientific, educational, cultural, recreational and aesthetic.
On March 3, 2019, the United Nations organizes World Wildlife Day. For this edition, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) has chosen the theme “Life in the oceans: For humanity and the planet”. A decision announced by the UNDP and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) that collaborate to organize this global event.
The UN has decided to make March 3 the “World Wildlife Day” to celebrate the flora and fauna and highlight the dangers of trafficking, welcomed Monday the Cites, the organization in charge of supervising the international trade in endangered species.
This “World Wildlife Day”, launched on March 3 with reference to the date of birth of CITES, March 3, 1973, is “a chance to celebrate the many beauties and different forms of fauna and flora. And to raise understanding of the many benefits of preservation, “said John Scanlon, Secretary-General of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
“At the same time, this special date reminds us of the critical call to intensify the battle against wildlife crime, and it is vast economic, environmental and social impacts,” the Geneva-based organization’s official said in a statement. This new “World Day” was adopted Friday at the 68th session of the UN General Assembly, “in the light of the threats to the environment of the planet and the dangers posed by the trafficking of fauna and flora at the global level “, says a report of this session by the UN.
Global wildlife trafficking is estimated at $ 19 billion (€ 14 billion) a year, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Cites is the main tool for the protection of wild fauna and flora, an evolutionary text that is theoretically necessary for the 177 member states. It regulates trade or even forbids it when their overexploitation risks leading to their loss. To date, some 35,000 species have been placed under its protection.
Annex I, which prohibits international trade, has more than 600 animals and 300 plants: great apes and big cats, most elephants and rhinos, sea turtles, many species of crocodiles and snakes, orchids or mahogany again. On Friday, the UN General Assembly also set up a “World Soil Day” on December 5th and proclaimed 2015 as the “International Year of Soils”.
Recall that the current loss of biodiversity and related changes in the environment are faster than any period in human history. Many animal and plant populations are in decline, whether in terms of a number of individuals, geographic extent, or diversity. Nearly 8,000 animal species, from birds to insects to gorillas, elephants, and reptiles, are considered to be in danger of extinction. Of these, 20% of mammals and 12% of known bird species may disappear permanently.
The current extinction, caused by human activities, is comparable to a major biological crisis since, by 2050, it is considered that 25 to 50% of species will have disappeared. However, millions of years are needed to recover biological diversity following massive extinction.
But our societies, although more and more artificial, remain closely dependent on our support of life. ”For thousands of years, people of all cultures have depended on the vast diversity of wild animals and plants found in nature to feed, clothe, heal and nourish themselves spiritually. Wildlife will also play a significant role in our future by making a significant contribution to the advancement of science and technology, by being an important source of recreation and as part of the legacy, we will leave, “Ban said in a statement message for the day.
The UN chief, however, recalled that despite its intrinsic value to sustainable growth and the well-being of humanity, wildlife is at risk. Some of the most popular species are threatened with extinction because of habitat loss or intensification. Thus, it was thought that the massacres of the last great land mammals are over, it is not. Worse, the year 2013 broke records in the horror: elephants like rhinoceros have paid a heavy price against the greed of man, while wildlife almost everywhere in the world, in a complicit silence that we can all help to break.
Wildlife crime has significant ecological, social and economic consequences. Of particular concern is the impact of trafficking in these species on peace and security in several countries where organized crime, armed uprisings, and terrorism are closely linked.
“Wildlife is certainly in grave danger, but we can, together, mitigate the threats to it. On this first World Wildlife Day, I urge all sectors of society to commit to ending the trafficking of wildlife and buying, selling and using wildlife, wild plants, and animals in a fair and sustainable way, “concluded the UN Secretary-General.
“We are not slaves of our past. What man has been doing to wildlife for centuries, through the exploitation of animals (which today translates into wildlife trafficking), the degradation of their natural habitats and many other harms, does not define the human condition. By passing on our knowledge to future generations and teaching them to recognize the value and beauty of the nature around us, we are building a world where our children will know how to celebrate wildlife every day said Azzedine Downes, executive director of IFAW, an NGO for animal welfare, animal populations and habitats around the world.
Another day to celebrate, a meager consolation that should not make us forget that respect for the living is a daily job, as well in exotic countries as in our forests and even in our cities.
How to celebrate World Wildlife Day?

Independent agency under the Department of State, the Peace Corps will become over time an essential tool of the foreign policy of the United States.
In the 1960 presidential campaign, John F. Kennedy challenged University of Michigan students to serve the cause of peace by living in developing countries. On March 1, 1961, Kennedy creates by an executive order a federal agency for this purpose, he appointed his brother-in-law, Sargent Shriver, at his head. The first volunteers leave for Ghana and Tanzania on August 28th. Authorized by Congress on 22 September, the program is an instant success, growing from 6,300 volunteers in 44 countries (1963) to more than 10,000 (1965) and 7,750 in 73 countries (2006). Since 1961, it has involved 183,000 Americans, including 60,000 in Africa and 73,000 in Latin America. They participate in projects in education, health, environment, development and technology. They can teach English or work at setting up a hospital, computer center or a new company. The program is so successful that a home version is launched by the president Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965. President Richard Nixon, opposed to the program, put him under control in 1971, but Jimmy Carter restored his autonomy in 1978. In 1981, the Congress formally established an independent federal agency. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan appointed a Republican Conservative as director and increased his resources from 1985. In 2001, George W. Bush will make the Peace Corps a key element of his anti-terrorist strategy. In 2004, Congress granted him a budget of 325 million. Over time, the Peace Corps, which definitely help counter the negative image of the “Ugly American”, will become an important institution of the foreign policy of the United States in developing countries.

NGO is a non-governmental organization (NGO) is a non-profit association, public interest, which is neither the state nor international institutions. NGOs do not have the status of a subject of international law.The habit is to reserve the term for non-profit corporations financed by private funds. The main criteria defining an NGO are the following:
- the non-profit purpose of his action;
- financial independence;
- political independence;
- the notion of public interest.
An NGO is a legal entity which, although not a government, intervenes in the national or international field. International legal relations are traditionally relations only between states (or between governments). The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is sometimes regarded as the ancestor of NGOs, even though it has a specific hybrid status vis-à-vis States.
Birth and life of the term “NGO”
The term “NGO” appears for the first time in Article 71 of Chapter 10 of the United Nations Charter of 1945, in a series of provisions devoted to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and alluded to the advisory role that could have organizations that are not part of a government. Half a century later, in a resolution of 25 July 1996, a definition is given by ECOSOC. According to the latter, an NGO is “an organization that has not been constituted by a public entity or by an intergovernmental agreement, even if it accepts members designated by the public authorities, provided that they do not harm to freedom of expression. Its financial means must come mainly from the contributions of its affiliates. Any financial contribution received directly from a government must be declared to the United Nations. “.
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are usually defined as public interest organizations that do not report to the state or to an international institution. This term is used for non-profit institutions funded by private funds. Their relationship to the state and the powers being quite ambiguous, it seems more logical to refer to NGOs with a term that does not directly involve this unusual status. The term OSI is now used as well as ASI for Organization or Association of International Solidarity, two names that seem to be better suited to the status of NGOs because they encompass all types of associations that act in the field of international solidarity.
International NGO Day is an opportunity to celebrate the unique role that civil society plays in upholding the fundamental rights of the human person and ensuring that no one will be left behind.
Today, February 26, the world celebrates Carnival Day.
A significant number of which are the voyaging type, like the circus in the 19th century and includes many amusement rides, street food, outdoor games. Entertainment activities that require skills and some by mere chance, thrilling performance and animal show.
These pro travel carnivals occur at state and district fairs, or in tiny areas such as parking spaces in shops. Some moving carnivals are utilized by the church, school, and some organizations, where a few requires less complex setup. For instance, pupils at a school may sort out and carry out a carnival at their school as a fund drive, without the utilization of an expert festival organization. These fairs are frequently held in the mid-year months, yet there are winter festivals also.
The 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition was a driving force for the beginning of carnival tours. It had the earliest icon ride, the Ferris wheel, and its Midway Plaisance had easy competitions, rides, chance games and amusement shows on the side such as burlesque and freak shows. The term “midway” was embraced by province and state fairs as a name for the territories where sideshow amusement occurred. There were seventeen festival organizations by 1902 which expanded to 46 in 1905 then 300 by the year 1937.
Rides previously began being constructed in the 18th century, however, they are not yet mechanical. Steam-fueled rides were made in 1868, which helped spike the rides fame status. Other than the Ferris wheel, there are numerous different rides at fairs. A number are for young kids, for example, the merry go round, the miniature train ride, roller coaster, and the inflatable jumping castle. Basic rides for grown-ups are the Zipper and the Tilt-A-Whirl. A few festivals have exciting rides, yet since carnivals move to another place, the thrill rides are normally not outstanding, and a carnival will just have a couple. Rides are frequently painted in brilliant hues and have their own song.
Carnival Fairs more often than not have food stalls that serve a wide assortment of nourishment. A few samples of food items seen usually in a carnival are cotton candy, funnel cake, caramel apples, candy, pizza, and hotdogs.
Another significant aspect of the carnival are games of luck and skill. Typical games of luck incorporate “duck pond” and “ping pong and fishbowl,” while basic skill games incorporate “crossbow shoot” and “balloon and darts.” Another well-known game in the carnival is the “water gun”, and the more difficult “stand the bottle.” Reward prizes range from small token to large stuff toys.
Back in the 19th century, sideshows were imperative. An additional entrance charge must be paid to see things, for example, zoological displays, where fascinating creatures were held, and also freak shows, where midget people and individuals and creatures with different appendages, deformations, or different whimsies would be seen.

What is Halal?
In the light of Islam, the term halal literally means anything that is lawful for the Muslim. In practice, the adjective “halal” generally refers to the foods allowed to the faithful. The meat of all sheep, cattle, goats, and camels is allowed, but also those of horse, poultry and rabbit. Everything that comes from the sea is also tolerated.
What is the halal slaughter right?
For meat to be declared halal, and therefore fit for consumption by Muslims, it must come from a beast slaughtered according to a precise ritual method, called “Dhabiha”. In France, the “Dhabiha” is based on a number of principles:
- The animal must be alive and have his head pointed towards Mecca.
- She must be conscious and not be stunned. This point provokes controversy and is disputed by some Muslims. The rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, has for example pronounced in favor of a stunning of the animals before their slaughter.
- The priest must be Muslim and empowered by a religious organization approved by the state. When he slaughters the beast, he must utter the following sacred words: “Bismillah Rahim or Allah Akbar” (“In the name of God, God is great”).
- Slitting must be done with a sharp knife to make a deep and fast incision. The goal is to cut the carotid arteries and jugular veins while avoiding the spinal cord so that convulsions improve blood drainage. The purpose of this technique is to empty the animal more effectively from its blood to make the meat more hygienic.
Halal certification is the key to access to Islamic markets and Halal markets. However, while the emphasis is placed on Halal certification providers, insufficient attention has been paid to monitoring the bodies and organizations that provide accreditation to Halal issuers.
In the world of Islamic commerce, the seal of the Halal certificate is the most important, so the role of the right to issue these certificates is very important in the credibility of the product, in addition to maintaining confidence in the Halal certification system.
The certification of Halal certification institutions is an official announcement that the institution is qualified to give Halal certificates for products and services.
In Dubai, the EIAC is responsible for ensuring that all Halal issuing institutions are qualified to carry out their duties in accordance with the required specifications.
The UAE’s Halal system is linked to a number of vital sectors in any economic sector. The UAE reached the top position in the Middle East in terms of development and the volume of logistics sectors. The country’s indicators of shipping, warehousing, and transport were high in the last year, Global Reports.
While the country’s retail consumption is expected to reach 750 Billion Dirhams this year, the national Halal regulatory system opens up new horizons for the optimal application of specifications under the umbrella of Islamic law and ensures that it conforms to international standards in this field. The UAE is a leading site in this field.
Halal food still accounts for 67% of the total trade in halal products and is expected to rise within the next three years. About 75% and 80% of halal food products are imported from Non-Islamic countries in a clear indicator of the universality of this sector and the huge development opportunities of all countries in economic terms.
The Center has also developed a mechanism to facilitate procedures for the disclosure of halal products through the development of the list of slaughterhouses certified within the scope of the Halal, which includes more than 170 “institutions and certified in Europe, the United States and Australia and developed a system to automate the adoption of institutions and slaughterhouses within The Commission’s database.
The automation process was done through the development of a sub-service “National Mark of Halal” within the electronic platform of the Authority so that all those who have the certificate of Halal from the accredited and listed certificate providers to apply directly to the service and obtain the license to use the mark through the self-service.
Emirates International Accreditation Center attributed the reasons for this success to the UAE’s potential, including advanced legislative structure, its leading role in the logistics management of the industry, serving the vital sector locally, regionally and internationally. It has been able to expand the scope of the Halal industry in recent years to include industries other than food.
