It’s the little things..

It’s the little things..

A few days ago, the Internet lit up with laughter with the Chewbaka lady. And who could resist laughing out loud with this one: seriously? This reminds me that it’s the little things in life that makes me happy. I’m grateful for those moments. But the internet also went hysterically sad too because of this one: But […]

Life in my garden

I love my little pond. It’s always full of life and the sound of the water calms me. I visit as often as I can, even if I just pass by when I arrive home and have a quick look. There’s always life in my garden. Passing by yesterday at lunch, I noticed a couple […]

The adverse effects of impunity on humanity

26 Apr, '165 Comments

I happened across a couple of posts on Facebook which clearly demonstrated to me the adverse effects of impunity on humanity.

Sources of ISIS Support

Sources of ISIS Support

26 Apr, '160 Comments

They analysed the sources of supportive Tweets and found that the majority emanate from Muslim countries. It’s no surprise to me that ISIS sympathisers are within our Arab communities.

How important is a business exit plan?

How important is a business exit plan?

What’s the average life of a business? I don’t know for certain, and I doubt anyone else in Bahrain or the Middle East knows either. Statistics of this sort are just not prioritised, and if they are, then they are not published. US statistics suggest that, on average, a Fortune 500 company lasts around 40 to 50 years. […]
