Even after repeated warnings from colleagues, friends and relatives we decided to venture out during the national day/liberation days. We were mentally prepared to get our car sprayed and not us. We went to City Center, Avenues and a lot of places but luckily we missed out every time.So the first day passed without any casualty.The second day was also going to get over and now we were getting desperate to get sprayed. We went in and around Salmiya, the main streets(not the Gulf Road), the side streets and so on, still we didn’t get sprayed. So we finally decided to head home, and now we see kids with foam sprays on both sides of the road , i was saying to myself this is our chance. I braked, and i was driving my car at snails pace, all of a sudden a guy jumps in front of the car, he is aiming the can at the windshield, now it’s the moment we had been waiting for, it was like being on a point blank range. I completely braked the car, so that he could enjoy. Bummer !!! The kid had an empty can.
So we finally assumed, this is not our day again and we were hoping to reach home with out getting hit. We reached our apartment and as i was parking, a Land cruiser loaded with foam mercenaries passed by and i was a dead duck for them and they had good fun.
Luckily it was foam only, i hate to think that people can get so sick to use hair removal creams and spray paints on innocent victims. God knows from where this foam spraying culture crept in. I hope the antifoaming movement gains momentum and at the same time people get their senses back… wishful thinking…
This futuristic looking stadium is the first in the world to provide all its own electricity using the power of the sun.The horse shoe-shaped structure in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, is the first stadium to use only solar power technology for all its electricity.The 8,844 solar panels will generate more than enough electricity to power the building’s 3,300 lights and two giant television screens.The panels will generate 1.14 million kWh of electricity per year, preventing 660 tons of annual carbon dioxide from being pumped into the atmosphere from traditional power stations.
I just wonder in Kuwait why we are not using solar products on a commercial basis. Definitely solar panels cost a lot for the initial installation and implementation, but once installed you can generate a lot of energy which can be used for many purposes.
According to the newspaper reports Kuwait is going to face a severe energy shortage during this year’s summer. If we can start some alternative energy initiatives now, at least in the coming years we can have a summer without any energy crunch.
Rajendra Kumar Pachauri (born August 20, 1940) has served as the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002. He has also been director general of TERI, a research and policy organization in India, and chancellor of TERI University. He has also been the chairman of the governing council of the National Agro Foundation (NAF), as well as the chairman of the board of Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society. Pachauri has been outspoken about climate change. At the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony when the award was shared between Al Gore and the IPCC on December 10, 2007, Pachauri represented the IPCC.
I somehow like to rant about the old buildings in Salmiya which are yearning for justice for decades. I know there are a lot of similar buildings across Kuwait which are standing amidst their ruins. The worst part about the whole situation is that you get to read in the news papers that a lot of crimes are happening in such deserted buildings. Besides that they are plain eye sore. For god’s sake, once you decide to vacate the tenants from the buildings for good, owners please make it a point to demolish it asap.

Years pass by and our kidneys are filtering the blood by removing salt, poison and any unwanted entering our body. With time, the salt accumulates and this needs to undergo cleaning treatments and how are we going to overcome this? It is very easy, first take a bunch of Parsley (MALLI Leaves) KOTHIMBIR (DHANIYA)and wash it clean. Then cut it in small pieces and put it in a pot and pour clean water and boil it for ten minutes and let it cool down and then filter it and pour in a clean bottle and keep it inside refrigerator to cool. Drink one glass daily and you will notice all salt and other accumulated poison coming out of your kidney by urination also you will be able to notice the difference which you never felt before. Parsley is known as best cleaning treatment for kidneys and it is natural!
