Challenges of teaching physiology in a PBL school. (1/43)

A problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum was introduced at McMaster University more than three decades ago. Not many schools have adopted the system despite its distinct advantages. The present paper examines the challenges of teaching physiology in a PBL curriculum and gleans through the literature supporting PBL. It appears that one of the reasons why PBL is not becoming readily acceptable is the lack of concrete reports evaluating the curricular outcomes. The suggestion (R.E. Thomas. Med Educ. 31:320-329, 1997) to standardize and internationalize all components of validated PBL curricula is quite valid. A database needs to be generated that can be easily accessed by traditional institutions to see the rationality and easy implementation of the PBL curriculum.  (+info)

Relation of high blood pressure to glucose intolerance, plasma lipids and educational status in an Arabian Gulf population. (2/43)

BACKGROUND: In Bahrain and other populations of the Arabian Peninsula, glucose intolerance is associated with raised plasma total cholesterol, postmenopausal status and low educational status. These associations are not generally seen in other populations with high diabetes prevalence. A study was undertaken in order to determine if hypertension in Bahrainis is associated with the same factors as those related to glucose intolerance. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of 2120 Bahrainis aged 40-69 years. RESULTS: The age-adjusted prevalence of hypertension (defined as current treatment for hypertension, systolic blood pressure > or = 160 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure > or = 95 mmHg) rose with increasing degrees of glucose intolerance. Age- and sex-standardized prevalence of hypertension was 21% (95% CI: 19-24%) in those with normal glucose tolerance, 31% (95% CI: 27-36%) in those with impaired glucose tolerance, and 38% (95% CI: 34-42%) in those with diabetes. In a multivariate analysis adjusting for age and sex, raised blood pressure was independently associated with waist girth, plasma cholesterol, glucose intolerance, family history of hypertension and (in women) postmenopausal status. There was an inverse relationship between blood pressure and educational status that was independent of other variables. This association parallels the inverse relationship of diabetes to educational level and is consistent with low educational level being a marker for socioeconomic deprivation in early life in this population. CONCLUSION: The high prevalence rates of hypertension and diabetes in Bahrainis are manifestations of a pattern of metabolic disturbances that includes raised plasma cholesterol levels. Both hypertension and diabetes are associated with low educational status, which in this population is a marker for socioeconomic deprivation in early life. This suggests that the risk of hypertension may be set by environmental factors in early life.  (+info)

Extent of use of immediate-release formulations of calcium channel blockers as antihypertensive monotherapy by primary care physicians: multicentric study from Bahrain. (3/43)

BACKGROUND: The issue of cardiovascular safety of calcium channel blockers (CCBs) has been widely debated in view of reflex increase in sympathetic activity induced by immediate release (IR) / short acting formulations. It is generally agreed that such CCBs should not be used alone in the management of hypertension. AIMS: We have determined the extent to which primary care physicians prescribe CCBs as monotherapy, especially the immediate release formulations, in the management of uncomplicated hypertension and diabetic hypertension - with an emphasis upon the age of the patients. SETTING, DESIGN AND METHODS: A retrospective prescription-based study was carried out in seven out of 18 Health Centres in Bahrain. The study involved a registered population of 229,300 representing 46% of registered individuals, and 35 physicians representing 43% of all primary care physicians. The data was collected between November 1998 and January 1999 using chronic dispensing cards. RESULTS: In all categories CCBs were the third commonly prescribed antihypertensive as monotherapy, with a prescription rate of 11.1% in uncomplicated hypertension, 18% in diabetic hypertension and 20.1% in elderly patients above 65 years of age. Nifedipine formulations were the most extensively prescribed CCBs. Almost half of the CCB-treated patients were on IR-nifedipine, whereas IR-diltiazem and IR-verapamil, and amlodipine were infrequently prescribed. CONCLUSION: Prescription of IR-formulations of CCBs as monotherapy by primary care physicians does not conform with recommended guidelines. In view of concerns about the safety of such practice, measures to change the prescribing pattern are required.  (+info)

Specific HLA-DRB and -DQB alleles and haplotypes confer disease susceptibility or resistance in Bahraini type 1 diabetes patients. (4/43)

Insofar as genetic susceptibility to type 1 diabetes is associated with HLA class II genes, with certain allelic combinations conferring disease susceptibility or resistance, this study assessed the distributions of HLA-DR and -DQ among 107 unrelated patients with type 1 diabetes and 88 healthy controls from Bahrain, all of Arab origin. The HLA-DRB and -DQB genotypes were determined by PCR-sequence-specific priming. The following alleles showed the strongest association with type 1 diabetes among patients versus controls according to their frequencies: DRB1*030101 (0.430 versus 0.097; P < 0.001), DRB1*040101 (0.243 versus 0.034; P < 0.001), DQB1*0201 (0.467 versus 0.193; P < 0.001), and DQB1*0302 (0.229 versus 0.091; P < 0.001). When the frequencies of alleles in controls were compared to those in patients, negative associations were seen for DRB1*100101 (0.085 versus 0.014; P < 0.001), DRB1*110101 (0.210 versus 0.060; P < 0.001), DQB1*030101 (0.170 versus 0.075; P = 0.006), and DQB1*050101 (0.335 versus 0.121; P < 0.001). In addition, the DRB1*030101-DQB1*0201 (70.1 versus 22.7%; P < 0.001) and DRB1*030101-DQB1*0302 (21.5 versus 0.0%; P < 0.001) genotypes were more prevalent among patients, thereby conferring disease susceptibility, whereas the DRB1*100101-DQB1*050101 (20.5 versus 2.8%; P < 0.001), DRB1*110101-DQB1*030101 (28.4 versus 8.4%; P < 0.001), and DRB1*110101-DQB1*050101 (30.7 versus 0.9%; P < 0.001) genotypes were more prevalent among controls, thus assigning a protective role. These results confirm the association of specific HLA-DR and -DQ alleles and haplotypes with type 1 diabetes and may underline several characteristics that distinguish Bahraini patients from other Caucasians patients.  (+info)

HLA class II profile and distribution of HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQB1 alleles and haplotypes among Lebanese and Bahraini Arabs. (5/43)

The gene frequencies of HLA class II alleles were studied in 95 healthy Lebanese Arab and 72 healthy Bahraini Arab subjects. Our aim was to establish the genetic relationship between Bahraini and Lebanese Arabs in terms of HLA class II gene and haplotype frequencies and to compare these results with frequencies for other countries with populations of Caucasian and non-Caucasian descent. Subjects were unrelated and of both sexes, and HLA-DRB1 and -DQB1 genotyping was done by the PCR sequence-specific primer technique. Comparative analysis of the HLA-DR and -DQ alleles revealed differences in the allelic distribution among Bahraini and Lebanese subjects. Analysis of the 25 HLA-DRB1 alleles that have been investigated showed that the DRB1*040101 and DRB1*110101 alleles were more frequent among Lebanese, whereas DRB1*030101 and DRB1*160101 alleles were more frequent among Bahrainis. Similarly, of the seven HLA-DQB1 alleles analyzed, the presence of DQB1*0201 was more frequent among Bahrainis, whereas DQB1*030101 was more frequent among Lebanese. The DRB1*160101-DQB1*050101 (0.1318 versus 0.0379%) and DRB1*030101-DQB1*0201 (0.1202 versus 0.0321%) haplotypes were more frequent among Bahrainis, while the DRB1*110101-DQB1*030101 (0.3142 versus 0.1198%) and DRB1*040101-DQB1*0302 (0.1416 versus 0.0278%) haplotypes were more frequent in Lebanese subjects. Furthermore, a high prevalence of the DRB1*040101-DRB1*110101-DQB1*0302-DQB1*030101 (12.63 versus 1.35%, P = 0.015) and the homozygous DRB1*110101-DRB1*110101-DQB1*030101-DQB1*030101 (7.37 versus 0.00%, P = 0.046) genotypes was seen among Lebanese, and DRB1*070101-DRB1*160101-DQB1*0201-DQB1*050101 (6.76 versus 0.00%, P = 0.034) was seen more frequently among Bahraini subjects. Our results underline significant differences between these two populations in HLA class II distribution, provide basic information for further studies of major histocompatibility complex heterogeneity among Arabic-speaking countries, and serve as a reference for further anthropological studies.  (+info)

Susceptible and protective human leukocyte antigen class II alleles and haplotypes in bahraini type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus patients. (6/43)

Whereas the genetic risk for type 1 diabetes is linked to human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II genes, the HLA association in type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes is less clear. The association between HLA class II genotypes and type 2 diabetes was examined in adult Bahrainis, an Arab population with a high prevalence of type 2 diabetes. HLA-DRB1* and -DQB1* genotyping of 86 unrelated type 2 diabetes patients (age, 51.6+/-8.2 years; mean duration of diabetes, 7.7+/-7.1 years) who had a strong family history of diabetes (52 of 72 versus 0 of 89 for controls, P<0.001) and 89 healthy subjects was done by PCR-sequence-specific priming. DRB1*040101 (0.1221 versus 0.0562, P=0.019) and DRB1*070101 (0.2151 versus 0.0843, P<0.001) were positively associated, while DRB1*110101 (0.0698 versus 0.1461, P=0.014) and DRB1*160101 (0.0640 versus 0.1236, P=0.038) were negatively associated with type 2 diabetes. DRB1*040101-DQB1*0302 (0.069 versus 0.0007; P=0.004), DRB1*070101-DQB1*0201 (0.178 versus 0.0761, P=0.007), DRB1*070101-DQB1*050101 (0.125 versus 0.0310, P=0.002), and DRB1*150101-DQB1*060101 (0.0756 versus 0.0281, P=0.008) were more prevalent among patients, while DRB1*160101-DQB1*050101 (0.0702 versus 0.0349, P=0.05) was more prevalent among controls, conferring disease susceptibility or protection, respectively. In Bahrainis with type 2 diabetes, there is a significant association with select HLA class II genotypes, which were distinct from those in type 1 diabetes.  (+info)

Clinical relevance of virulence genes in Campylobacter jejuni isolates in Bahrain. (7/43)

There are no data describing the genetic make-up of Campylobacter strains (an important aetiological agent of diarrhoea) circulating in the Arabian Gulf region. Here, the molecular characterization of two virulence genes in Campylobacter jejuni from Bahrain and the relationship with clinical infection are reported. Molecular screening for cytolethal distending toxin (cdtB) and invasion-associated marker (iam) genes was carried out on C. jejuni stool isolates collected from January 2002 to January 2004 in Bahrain. The molecular characterization was correlated with the patients' socio-demographic and clinical parameters. Of the 96 C. jejuni strains tested, 50 (52 %) were cdtB+/iam+, 30 (31 %) were cdtB+/iam- and 16 (17 %) were cdtB-/iam-. Sixty-nine per cent (66/96) of patients were less than 3 years old, with significantly higher detection of cdtB+/iam+ and cdtB+/iam- strains (P < 0.001 and P < 0.01, respectively) in this age group. Seventy patients (73 %) were symptomatic. In the group that were less than 3 years old, 62 and 85 % of those with cdtB+/iam+ and cdtB+/iam- strains, respectively, were symptomatic compared with 100 % for those over 3 years of age. However, the presence of cdtB-/iam- strains still resulted in clinical infection in the children under 3 years but not in the older patients. This is the first report describing the molecular characterization of virulence genes in Campylobacter isolates from this region. The findings indicate that strains of different virulence genetic make-up are circulating in the population, with children under the age of 3 years being most vulnerable. Further work on the molecular characterization, gene expression and determination of the invasive phenotypes of C. jejuni strains circulating in different regions is needed.  (+info)

Detection of Helicobacter pylori cagA gene in gastric biopsies, clinical isolates and faeces. (8/43)

PURPOSE: Helicobacter pylori infection is common in the developing countries. The cagA gene is a marker of pathogenicity island (PAI) in H. pylori . The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of cagA among dyspeptic patients in Bahrain directly from gastric biopsy and stool specimen. METHODS: A total of 100 gastric biopsy samples, 16 clinical isolates and 44 faecal specimens were collected from Bahraini adult dyspeptic patients. cagA gene of H. pylori was assessed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). RESULTS: The cagA gene was detected in 59 (59%) from biopsy specimens, 10 (62%) clinical isolates and in 10 (22.7%) faecal specimens. The detection of cagA positive H. pylori was significantly higher in patients with duodenal ulcer (80%) compared to those with other endoscopic finding (42%) (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Using PCR to detect cagA gene directly from biopsy is a rapid and reliable technique. However, using stool specimen for genotyping in our patients showed reduced sensitivity.  (+info)

The U.S.-Bahrain security relationship is deep and long-standing. In exchange for a tacit security guarantee against Iran or other aggressors, Bahrain has provided key support for U.S. interests by hosting U.S. naval headquarters for the Gulf for over 60 years and by providing facilities and small numbers of personnel for U.S. war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Because of the instability in Bahrain, there is concern that U.S. use of the naval headquarters facilities might become untenable, but there are no evident moves to relocate it. This facility has been pivotal to U.S. strategy to deter any Iranian aggression as well as to interdict the movement of terrorists and weapons-related technology on Gulf waterways. Beyond the naval facility, the United States signed a formal defense pact with Bahrain in 1991 and has designated Bahrain as a major non- NATO ally, entitling it to sales of sophisticated U.S. weapons systems. Bahrain also receives small amounts of U.S. security assistance. New U.S. ...
Beirut, 5 June 2012 -- The Gulf Center for Human Rights (GCHR), the Bahrain Center for Human Rights (BCHR), Bahrain Rehabilitation Against Violence Organization (BRAVO), and Bahrain Human Rights Society (BHRS), express grave concern regarding the act of humiliation, intimidation and violation to the privacy directed at the prominent human rights lawyer Mohamed Al-Tajer, days after his participation at the Bahrain UPR meetings in Geneva.. The above mentioned NGOs received information that private photos and videos of the human rights lawyer Mohamed Al-Tajer and his wife have been circulated online in the past two days via pro-government forums and accounts on the social media.. The Human Rights Lawyer, Mohammed Al-Tajer, stated that he had previously provided testimony to the Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry BICI that he was videotaped sleeping with his wife and that he was threatened that this tape would be made public. (BICI 1261.b). According to Al-Tajers testimony, after spending ...
In 1783, the Sunni Al-Khalifa family took power in Bahrain. In order to secure these holdings, it entered into a series of treaties with the UK during the 19th century that made Bahrain a British protectorate. The archipelago attained its independence in 1971. A steady decline in oil production and reserves since 1970 prompted Bahrain to take steps to diversify its economy, in the process developing petroleum processing and refining, aluminum production, and hospitality and retail sectors. It has also endeavored to become a leading regional banking center, especially with respect to Islamic finance. Bahrains small size, central location among Gulf countries, economic dependence on Saudi Arabia, and proximity to Iran require it to play a delicate balancing act in foreign affairs among its larger neighbors. Its foreign policy activities usually fall in line with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. The Sunni royal family has long struggled to manage relations with its large Shia-majority population. In ...
The wildlife of Bahrain is the flora and fauna of the archipelago of Bahrain, and is more varied than might be expected of this small group of islands in the Persian Gulf. Apart from a strip of the north and west of the main island, where crops are irrigated, the land is arid. With a very hot dry summer, a mild winter, and brackish groundwater, the plants need adaptations in order to survive. Nevertheless, 196 species of higher plant have been recorded here, as well as about seventeen species of terrestrial mammals, many birds and reptiles, and a large number of migratory birds visit the islands in autumn and spring. Bahrain is a group of islands on the western side of the Persian Gulf, approximately halfway between Saudi Arabia, 24 kilometres (15 mi) to the west and Qatar, 28 kilometres (17 mi) to the east. Bahrain Island is the largest island and is 55 kilometres (34 mi) long by 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide. It consists of a low plain with a central hill, the Mountain of Smoke, the highest point ...

Bahrain: A Case Study in Despotism by Stephen Lendman In summer 2010, sporadic protests began. By mid-February last year, major ones erupted. From then to now, they challenged repressive rule nonviolently. They continue daily. At issue is King Sheikh Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifas regime. Bahrainis want democratic change, sectarian Shia discrimination ended, equitable distribution of state wealth, political prisoners released, and terrorizing stopped. They also want popularly elected leaders replacing Al-Khalifa rule. Its despotic, ruthless and intolerable. For months, many thousands braved security force attacks with tear gas, beatings, rubber bullets, live fire, arrests, torture, and disappearances. Last March, Saudi troops entered Bahrain guns blazing. They remain, terrorizing Bahraini men, women, children, doctors, journalists, human rights activists, and foreign observers. So do state police. No matter. King Hamads a close US ally. Bahrains the home of Americas Fifth Fleet. Generous aids ...
With the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend ten days away, international attention is once again focusing on the critical situation in the troubled island kingdom in the Persian Gulf. Daily clashes continue between protesters and the security services, and the beleaguered Al-Khalifa regime faces a growing international backlash over its treatment of jailed human rights defender Abdulhadi al-Khawaja, who is reportedly nearing death after hunger-striking for more than 60 days in protest at the continuing detention of activists in Bahrain. Al-Khawajas declining health and the imminent Formula One Grand Prix ensure that the spotlight will once again be trained on Bahrain, if only for a few days this April. Led by 1996 Formula One world champion Damon Hill, a number of racing teams and commentators have expressed concern about the wisdom of holding a Grand Prix in the current climate (and its cancellation remains a possibility). Referring to the ongoing repression of opposition protests by the Bahraini ...
The Tree of Life (Shajarat-al-Hayat) in Bahrain is a 9.75 meters (32 feet) high Prosopis cineraria tree that is over 400 years old. It is on a hill in a barren area of the Arabian Desert, 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from Jebel Dukhan, the highest point in Bahrain, and 40 kilometers from Manama, the nearest city.[1] The tree is abundantly covered in green leaves. Due to its age and the fact that it is the only major tree growing in the area, the tree is a local tourist attraction and is visited by approximately 65,000 people every year. The yellow resin is used to make candles, aromatics and gum; the beans are processed into meal, jam, and wine.[2] It is not certain how the tree survives. Bahrain has little to no rain throughout the year. Its roots are 50 meters deep, which may be enough to reach the water source.[2] Others say the tree has learned to extract moisture from grains of sand. Some assert that the tree is protected by Enki, a god of water in Babylonian and Sumerian religion. Others claim ...
Since April, university authorities have suspended or expelled at least 500 students for allegedly taking part in or voicing support for anti-government protests in February and March. Of the students subjected to disciplinary action, more than 400 were enrolled in the University of Bahrain and more than 60 in Bahrain Polytechnic.. Twenty-nine students at three universities told Human Rights Watch that they were suspended or expelled simply for attending demonstrations at the Pearl Roundabout or posting statements critical of the government on Facebook or Twitter. The students told Human Rights Watch that university officials used photos and remarks from Facebook pages to identify those who participated in protests. Investigative committees questioned them for between 20 minutes and an hour, they said, and did not give them a meaningful opportunity to challenge the expulsion or suspension decisions.. University of Bahrain officials announced on April 19 that they had expelled 120 students for ...
Earlier this month, religious leaders of various faiths met at the Beverley Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles to celebrate the newly signed Kingdom of Bahrain Declaration—a notable document because it is a proclamation supporting some degree of religious freedom sponsored and backed by a majority Muslim country. While the majority of Bahrain’s population is Shia Muslim, most of its government positions are held by Sunni Muslims. In addition, there are small numbers of Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, and Jews all living in the country. Against this multi-religious backdrop, the religious freedom declaration was backed and signed by the King of Bahrain. ...

By Patrick Cockburn via Independent. Journalists in Bahrain are being arrested and mistreated in a bid to prevent reporting of mass protests today demanding democratic rights in the island kingdom where the majority of the population is Shia but absolute power is in the hands of the Sunni monarchy.. In a further sign of nervousness on the part of authorities in Bahrain ahead of the protests, the countrys prime minister issued an ominous warning in an apparent attempt to deter protesters from taking to the streets.. The government will forcefully confront suspect calls to violate law and order and those who stand behind them through decisive measures, Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa was quoted by the official Bahrain news agency as saying.. The warning comes just days after a Royal decree was issued that outlawed the holding of demonstrations and sit-ins in the capital Manama. The decree also introduced a new law that would impose penalties on parents who allow their children to take part ...

Jameel Mohamed Ali Humaidan, Minister of Labour and Social Development of Bahrain, introducing the report, said that the National Strategy for Children 2013-2017, based on the principles set forth by the Convention, had been extended to 2023 and stressed the adoption of a number of laws to guarantee the rights of the child, including on births, deaths, education and child labour, which was strictly prohibited, while the Child Law N°37 of 2012 had become the primary reference for all other laws. The Bahraini child enjoyed a relatively high standard of living: the country ranked 43rd on the Human Development Index, up by 13.4 per cent since 1990; life expectancy at birth had increased by over 4 years and now stood at 76; the average years of study ...
In response to pointed criticism from the United Nations Human Rights Council, representatives of the Bahraini government claimed they would accept and implement over 150 of the councils recommendations for the improvement of human rights and the treatment of prisoners. Foreign Minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa remarked that Our actions, more than our words, should dispel any doubts regarding [Bahrains] commitment to upholding human rights through the rule of law. Despite this, there are real reasons to be skeptical that Manama is ready to turn the page. The government is certainly interested in pushing a more progressive image abroad, but the truth at home is that authorities remain committed to pursuing a hardline political agenda that invariably involves sustained suppression of activists. For one, the crackdowns have only increased. In April 2011, police arrested, tortured, and subsequently sentenced Abd al-Hadi al-Khawaja, a dual citizen of Bahrain and Denmark, to life imprisonment. ...
Bahrain - Bahrain - Religion: The population is predominately Muslim and includes both the Sunni and the Shīʿite sects, with the latter in the majority. The ruling family and many of the wealthier and more influential Bahrainis are Sunni, and this difference has been an underlying cause of political and social tension. Christians constitute about half of the remaining one-fifth of the population, with the rest consisting of Jews, Hindus, and Bahāʾīs. The majority of the population now dwells in towns, but in the north and northwest of the main island, where irrigation has long been carried out using artesian water, there are numerous small
New Delhi , April 7 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and his Bahraini counterpart Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani co-chaired the third India-Bahrain High Joint Commission (HJC) on Wednesday, wherein Manama expressed interest in setting up pharmaceutical and vaccine production units in Bahrain in collaboration with New Delhi. According to a statement, the Indian side welcomed Bahrains keen interest and agreed to

In a remarkable change in the Middle East, three countries - the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan - have taken steps towards normalizing relations with the State of Israel in recent months. These are the first countries to do so since Jordan made peace with Israel in 1994. These countries, along with Egypt, are the only four in the Middle East that currently have diplomatic relations with Israel. This decision marks a radical shift by Arab nations from the Arab Peace Initiative of 2002. The resolution, upheld by a unanimous vote and signed by both the UAE and Bahrain, established several demands that, until they were met, would prevent signatories from establishing diplomatic relations with Israel. Key conditions for peace included establishing a Palestinian state according to the Israel-Palestine borders as drawn in 1967 with East Jerusalem as a capital. Following the Six-Day War of 1967, Israel annexed territory in the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula, and the West ...
Business in the Gulf is booming. Tourism, financial services and construction are growing strongly, spurred by ambitious development plans and financed by high oil prices and increased production. Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are all carrying out reforms to encourage private sector growth and diversify their economies. But there are challenges too. For Bahrain and Oman, reserves of oil are fast diminishing and growth beyond oil is necessary. For all the Gulf states, there is an urgent need to create quality employment opportunities for their rapidly growing populations. This report looks at these issues and the business opportunities strong growth and diversification plans are creating. Australias trade with the region has grown rapidly and as the report shows, Australian companies are well placed to access new opportunities. ...
The current Canadian government has a thing for monarchy. In fact the Conservatives seem to like it better than democracy.. First it seemed quirky and quaint when they ordered portraits of Queen Elizabeth II to be put up in Canadas overseas missions and promoted British royal visits. Then it got a little embarrassing when they reinstated Royal to the Canadian Air Force and the Navys official name.. But since the Arab Spring democracy struggles that began in 2011 Stephen Harpers government has gotten down right scary, apparently supporting the divine right of kings over rule by the people.. Since 2011 the Tories have publicly backed ruling royal families from Morocco to Saudi Arabia. Theyve signed (or are negotiating) free trade agreements and foreign investment protection agreements with Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait and Morocco -- all ruled by kings.. During a trip to the Middle East last week Foreign Minister John Baird met royal officials in Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab ...
Additional banks involved in the financing include BNP Paribas, HSBC Bank, Mizho Bank, Arab Banking Corporation,Gulf International Bank, National Bank of Bahrain, Kuwait Finance House, Dubai Islamic Bank and Arab Petroleum Investment Corporation.. The financing was based on a commodity structured scheme that relied on BAPCOs corporate strength and strong sovereign support. The return on investment from these modernisation and construction projects is expected to be at least 20-24%.. The refining industry is not usually very lucrative. As oil prices change refinery margins may become negative due to the relatively lower product prices compared with crude oil. The economics of the refining industry often dictate that it is more cost effective to upgrade an existing refinery rather than construct a new one from scratch.. In June 2008 BAPCO established a joint venture with Finlands Neste Oil Corporation to build a high-quality lubricant base oils plant in Bahrain. The plant commenced production in ...
Prominent human rights defender and founder of the Bahrain Centre for Human rights (BCHR) and the Gulf Center for Human Rights (GCHR), Abdulhadi Al-Khawaja, has declared an open hunger strike in protest against the continuation of arbitrary arrest and detention. In a statement made to members of his immediate family during a visit today, Mr. AlKhawaja declared that he would refuse all food and liquids with the exception of water. He also informed his family that due to the drugging, force feeding and the forced ending of his last hunger strike, he will also refuse to be taken to any hospital, the prison clinic or to receive any IV treatment during his strike.. Mr. Al-Khawaja was arbitrary arrested on 9 April 2011 and sentenced to life imprisonment by a military court in a grossly unfair trial for his peaceful and legitimate human rights activism. He was subjected to torture during both his arrest and detention. The Bahrain Independent Commission of Inquiry (BICI) found that this torture ...

You know, I think the United States, almost by default, feels like it has to get involved, but you get the sense, being in a place like Tahrir Square, that the less involved they are, the better its going to be. I think there is - I think, you know, critics out there would see a level of cynicism on how this is unfolding, in terms of U.S. and Western intervention. I think its no coincidence that France and Italy, both with interests in the future of Libyas oil, were the first to recognize Libyas opposition government, along with Qatar. And I think theres - you know, critics are right to point out that we havent seen a uniform standard on how American and Western intervention plays across the region. We saw a much more forceful response in Libya compared to what weve seen in Yemen or Bahrain, Yemen and Bahrain obviously both being strategic allies to the United States and the West. It is - you know, American intervention has a pretty sad history in the Arab world, and you do wonder how ...

Since May, 2017 an ongoing insurgency has been raging in the Shia heartland town of Awamiya in eastern Saudi Arabia and its only thanks to the BBC being allowed to enter the area and film the destruction that the world can see how the House of Sauds war against the Shia population of Yemen has now expanded to include the Shia population of eastern Saudi Arabia.. The BBC World report shown on Wednesday, August 16, seemed to have come from Syria, with al-Zara, the ancient Shia capital of the Persian province of Bahrain and the rest of the town of Awamiya showing a level of devastation resembling that in Syria or to the Kurdish cities destroyed recently by Erdogan Ottomans Janissarris.. Block by block destruction of the Old City with no visible signs of the Shia people who once lived here for millenia with almost 500 buildings destroyed and over 20,000 driven from their homes by Saudi airstrikes, artillery and mortar fire.. The BBC crew was only allowed there in armored vehicles, filming through ...
Downloadable! This paper examines the validity of Purchasing Power Parity and investigates the market integration between Jordan and its major trading partners, namely, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Unit root tests, Johansen co-integration test and a vector error correction model were employed to test data covering the period 2005Q1-2012Q4. The unit root tests demonstrated that all variables were integrated of order one. The results of co-integration tests showed that a co-integrating relationship existed between exchange rates, domestic and foreign price levels for four Gulf Cooperation Council countries. The two remaining countries, Oman and United Arab Emirates, do not have a cointegration relationship. For the vector error correction model, we found the error correction terms for Jordan with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries carried the expected sign. This suggests that whenever there is a deviation from the equilibrium co-integrating relationship, the
On June 5, 2017, Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Qatar and imposed an air, land, and sea blockade against the tiny Gulf nation. Shortly thereafter, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Egypt, the Maldives, the Hadi government in Yemen, and the Haftar government in Libya followed suit, joining the Saudi-led bloc against Qatar. Despite the fact that tensions have been simmering for many years amongst the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), the escalation comes a few weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump completed his first foreign trip to the Riyadh Summit, where his main priority was to promote a unified Arab front against the Islamic State (ISIS). In actuality, Trumps unifying message has spurred the opposite reaction, as the Gulf is now more divided than ever. All the countries involved in the political crisis are strategic members of the U.S. led coalition against ISIS. Most importantly, Qatar is home to the U.S. Al-Udeid air base from which the coalition cooperatively launches ...
The Abu Dhabi scheme is one of a number of projects in the region that can be considered as not merely CCS, but carbon capture and utilisation, known as CCUS. For instance, in neighbouring Saudi Arabia the Saudi Arabian Fertiliser Company is investing in equipment at its facilities that can convert 850,000 tonnes of CO per year into 1.1m tonnes of urea, while similar schemes are also going ahead in Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain. Alongside carbon capture from industry, the Danish shipping and energy conglomerate Maersk signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Masdar in January 2014 to collaborate on carbon capture projects for power generation facilities, according to a January 2014 report from The National.. The MoU would entail Abu Dhabi making use of the Danish companys, as yet commercially untested, Tri-Gen technology, which would generate water and CO for oilfield injection, as well as producing 200 MW of power per unit. Were Abu Dhabi to build seven such units, it is estimated that an ...

Ruled by the Al Thani family since the mid-1800s, Qatar within the last 60 years transformed itself from a poor British protectorate noted mainly for pearling into an independent state with significant oil and natural gas revenues. The continuous siphoning off of petroleum revenue through the mid-1990s by Qatari amirs permanently residing in Europe had stunted Qatars economic growth. Former amir HAMAD bin Khalifa Al Thani, who overthrew his father in a bloodless coup in 1995, ushered in wide-sweeping political and media reforms, unprecedented economic investment, and a growing Qatari regional leadership role, in part through the creation of the pan-Arab satellite news network Al-Jazeera and Qatars mediation of some regional conflicts. In the 2000s, Qatar resolved its longstanding border disputes with both Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and by 2007 had attained the highest per capita income in the world. Qatar did not experience domestic unrest or violence like that seen in other Near Eastern and ...

FRIEDMAN: The problem with Syria is that unlike other Arab awakening revolutions -- you know, Libya imploded. Egypt imploded. Bahrain imploded. Yemen imploded. Syria explodes. It goes out, because all the minority and majority factions in Syria are connected in Lebanon, in Turkey, in Jordan, in Iraq in the same way. Thats what were seeing. Were seeing this spread to Lebanon. Heres the problem, Piers. We have to look at this I think honestly and soberly. And the fact is this, theres only one way to stop fighting there. I dont think its a humanitarian zone, a no-fly zone. You have to occupy the country. You have to do what the United States did in Iraq. You have to take it over. You have to kill the bad guys. You have to basically suppress the extremists in all communities ...
After Ismail I captured Tabriz in 1501 and established Safavids dynasty, he proclaimed Twelver Shiʿism as the state religion, ordering conversion of the Sunnis. Unfortunately for Ismail, most of his subjects were Sunni. He thus had to enforce official Shiism violently, putting to death those who opposed him. Thousands were killed in subsequent purges. In some cases entire towns were eliminated because they were not willing to convert from Sunni Islam to Shiite Islam.[22] a search of all Islamic libraries unearthed only one book on Shia Islam. Ismail brought Arab Shia clerics from Bahrain, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon in order to preach the Shia faith.[23] Ismails attempt to spread Shiite propaganda among the Turkmen tribes of eastern Anatolia prompted a conflict with the Sunnite Ottoman Empire. Following Irans defeat by the Ottomans at the Battle of Chaldiran, Safavid expansion slowed, and a process of consolidation began in which Ismail sought to quell the more extreme expressions of ...
For Washington, as stated by President Barack Obama in his latest speech, safeguarding US interests in Libya and the Middle East is of great importance. Many analysts believe they are right to accuse the US and the West of entering the war with Muammar Gaddafi in order to maintain the flow of Libyan oil. If not why is there no military incursion in Yemen or why do they support or keep silent on the invasion of Bahrain by cooperation council forces ...

Law enforcement throughout the world is increasingly responding to popular protests with crowd-control weapons (CCWs), also known as less-lethal weapons. The proliferation of CCWs without adequate regulation, training, monitoring, and/or accountability has led to the widespread and routine use or misuse of these weapons, resulting in injury, disability, and death.. After the South Korean government used more than 350,000 canisters of tear gas against demonstrators in 1987, PHR organized an investigation that concluded Seouls indiscriminate use of massive amounts of tear gas was clearly excessive use of force, effectively changing the perception of tear gas as a harmless crowd-control tactic. Since then, PHR has conducted numerous investigations into governments excessive and indiscriminate use CCWs and other forms of excessive force, including in Bahrain, Georgia, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, Kashmir, Panama, Thailand, Turkey, Sudan - as well as, and in the United States ...

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the Arabian Gulf. In this study, the in‐hospital mortality amongst patients admitted with ACS to Arabian Gulf hospitals is predicted using a comprehensive modelling framework that combines powerful machine‐learning methods such as support‐vector machine (SVM), Naïve Bayes (NB), artificial neural networks (NN), and decision trees (DT). The performance of the machine‐learning methods is compared with that of the performance of a commonly used statistical method, namely, logistic regression (LR). The study follows the current practise of computing mortality risk using risk scores such as the Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) score, which has not been validated for Arabian Gulf patients. Cardiac registry data of 7,000 patients from 65 hospitals located in Arabian Gulf countries are used for the study. This study is unique as it uses a contemporary data analytics framework. A k‐fold (k = 10) ...
DPN opposes the death penalty in all cases, unconditionally, regardless of the method chosen to kill the condemned prisoner. The death penalty is inherently cruel and degrading, an archaic punishment that is incompatible with human dignity. To end the death penalty is to abandon a destructive diversionary and divisive public policy that is not consistent with widely held values. The death penalty not only runs the risk of irrevocable error, it is also costly to the public purse as well as in social and psychological terms.The death penalty has not been proved to have a special deterrent effect. It tends to be applied in a discriminatory way on grounds of race and class. It denies the possibility of reconciliation and rehabilitation. It prolongs the suffering of the murder victims family and extends that suffering to the loved ones of the condemned prisoner. It diverts resources that could be better used to work against violent crime and assist those affected by it ...

Smoking among women is increasing, especially in women of reproductive age. In a cross-sectional study of 1000 Lebanese mothers, we evaluated their knowledge, attitude and practice regarding cigarette smoking. We found that the amount of tobacco smoked by Lebanese mothers was related to age, educational level, profession and knowledge regarding smoking. A woman was more likely to stop or decrease smoking during pregnancy if she were more knowledgeable about the effects of smoking on the baby, if she smoked less, and if she had a higher degree of education. Knowledge about the effects of smoking on the smoker did not seem to affect this ...
