How big was the world’s population when you were born?

One of my readers shared this interesting link with me. Just insert your birth of date and you will know the number of world’s population when you were born! Interesting right?

Here’s the population when I was born:

On Saturday January 27, 1990, the global population was approximately:

5,135,470,957

Now I know my order in this world! Do you think it matters? Or is it just a number?

Green Caravan film festival 2011 – Kuwait

I`m really excited about the Green Caraval film festival that will be taking place in both Kuwait and Dubai this November.

“The Green Caravan Film Festival is a celebration of the environment and the art of film making. The 3rd season of the festival brings more exciting and award wining films to the region that we hope will inspire and perhaps, do what all art and learning hopes to do, change you.  This year we have screenings in both Kuwait and Dubai in venues that we have chosen for their beauty and their commitment to culture and to our common mission to spark environmental action.”

You can visit their website to see what is it all about, you can also watch the movies’ trailers and even volunteer!

Saudi restaurant FINES diners for leftovers

I read this amazing piece of news in en.v blog that a Saudi restaurant will be fining diners who fail to finish their meals.

“Bosses at Marmar Restaurant in Dammam are said to vary the level of leftover charge depending on how much food has been left on the plate.”

“There are many clients who make large orders in order to impress the people around them and boost their social prestige,” he said, as quoted by Saudi media.

I really loved the idea! I remember posting an article about the same issue. I always feel bad if anything stayed in my plate when I`m eating outside home. I usually take my leftovers as a take away. But many people don’t. I see people ordering lots and lots of food, many stays in the plate and end up in the garbage. Applying this technique in restaurants will absolutely change people’s perspective and will reduce the waste in the same time. I know that deep inside each and every person in this world we know what we do is wrong, but all we need is a reminder, and sometimes, a FINE like this. I really wish to see this happening in Kuwait.
