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?

An Arab woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize

Tawakul Karman , a journalist from Yemen has won the Nobel Peace Prize

“for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work”

Karman has created the human rights group Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC) in 2005 for promoting human rights.Ms. Karman, who belongs to the main opposition party,  Al-Islah, has also spoken out against the rise of religious fundamentalism and violence in her country.

Regardless of the controversy of her act of taking of her “Niqab” and asking women in her country to do so, I`m so proud of her and I ask all the suppressed women in our society to follow her steps to prove themselves and speak out for their rights!

 

 

What does it take for a baby to cry?

Meet Maya, whose healthy birth is the result of stronger health systems. Strengthening health systems is at the center of the World Bank’s global strategy for health, nutrition, and population. We don’t focus only on one disease or condition, we look at health as a whole — what is preventing people from being healthy, how we can change this, and what impact it will have on development.

Inspiring!

Sweet Hearts Campaign

So today I was in the Avenues with friends having lunch in “…” restaurant. Anyway, I ordered Grilled Mushrooms and it was horrible. Like really horrible that I can’t see that dish again in my life. So I was feeling really bad for leaving all that food uneaten and was thinking of those Hungry people in Africa, I felt really really bad.

But suddenly, I saw this BEAUTIFUL huge red booth in the second floor, with all those small hearts that mesmerized me into that place and I didn’t realize what I was doing until I was done.

Yes people! I donated blood today! (I know I sound too excited but I really am!) I always wanted to donate blood but I never had the chance to go to the blood bank and do that. But now, the Sweet Hearts Campaign are willing to “Paint Kuwait in Red” The people working there are really nice and professional. And the nurses are taking extra care of the donators. I`m glad I saw it after my food crime, it eases the feeling of guilt.

The process was painless and I didn’t feel dizzy at all! Go there and show your support.

P.S: I was too excited that I forgot to ask when will they finish their campaign in the avenues. You may want to rush there before it’s all done
