Dear Sail Readers,
As we publish our 16th issue, many of you have already started your summer holidays and are travelling across the globe. Summer is always a good time to start fresh and new. Some of our columnists as well are away in holidays and couldn’t contribute this month, we hope all of you, our readers and our columnists, are enjoying your holidays and come back fresher than ever.
Joining Sail team from this month is Moadh Bukhash, he is already known for his blog “The Mind’s Eye” in which he writes on different topics of his interest, and reflects upon them in his own way. Moadh joins us to bring on board some of his socio-philosophical reflections on different matters, definitely a valuable addition to the magazine, which we hope you will enjoy.
Also in this issue, we have a special contribution from one of our board members: Aida AlBusaidi. Aida is a communications specialist, one of the most known Emirati Master of Ceremonies, and is a regular columnist at “The National”.
So this issue includes:
- Special Contribution: Aida AlBusaidi reflects on a recent trip she has taken with the “Journey Through Change” (JTC) group, and the self-discovery she found along the way.
- Community Talk: Khalid Al Ameri discusses a pro-active approach to personal & professional development in the corporate world.
- Just Another Undergrad: Fatma Bujsaim writes about breaks and how everyone needs a break every once in a while and summer is the best time to do so.
- Living Through the Eyes of Art: Hamda AlHashemi ponders on how some things must be said out loud while other things must be kept private. But how do we know what to say, and when to say it?
- Society of Tomorrow: Mohamed AlJunaibi explains that network gaming cafes have experienced the boom and gloom of the overall UAE economy. It is 2011, and it is making a comeback! With the continual enhancements within the communication world, gaming cafes have now become online social cafes. While a blessing to many, it also has a dark side as well.
- The Mind’s Eye: Moadh Bukhash explores the fundamental role women play in our lives; he explores the three main roles they play: the mother, the wife/partner, and the daughter.
- To The Point: In light of the recent events in the Arab world and the criticism that has been witnessed in the media, Mohammed Kazim suggests what can be done to improve the current socio-political systems of the GCC and maintain stability, development, and welfare. The author stresses the role of both the citizens and those who manage their affairs.
