In the space of eight days in November, the UAE will host a pair of boxing events that could prove to be ground-breaking for the development of the sport in the emirates.  On November 13 at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, one of the greatest boxers of all time, Floyd Mayweather Jr, faces YouTuber Deji Olatunji in his second exhibition fight in the UAE in the past five months.

November 1 is World Vegan Day and what better way to celebrate the joys of plant-based living than with a hearty green feast? Since 1994, plant-eaters have marked the day in honor of the UK Vegan Society and in recent years the festivities have spread faster than vegan nut butter on hot toast. In the UAE, vegans have their pick of fine-dining restaurants, brunches and cool cafes with everything from high tea to buckwheat meatballs...

It’s easy to criticize TikTok as dumb if you don’t use it, and it’s also easy to criticize it as a mind-numbing time-suck if you use it all the time. But it’s an informed criticism, with an understanding of the value the app provides in return, and that’s the difference. It’s a forum for all of humanity, and it turns out humanity is pretty awesome. I wouldn’t trade my time watching Andrew Murnane managing to...

Fiona Rennie — Menopause Doc Dubai on Instagram — is a family medicine doctor at Dubai’s Genesis Healthcare Center in Dubai Science Park. She spoke to The Livehealthy Podcast about how women in the UAE are struggling with this transition, in part because the medical profession is so ill-equipped to deal with it, and why research is showing that menopause hormone therapy, aka HRT, is safer and more beneficial than ever. Her goal is to...

UFC 280 — aka the Ultimate Fighting Championship fight card — is rolling back into Abu Dhabi, with its colorful cast of characters set to deliver another crowd-pleasing dose of MMA, sprinkled with an inevitable smattering of trash talk at Etihad Arena on Yas Island October 22 2022. Since the UAE capital penned a five-year deal in 2019 with the UFC to hold events, Abu Dhabi has played host to some of MMA’s most iconic...

‘Golf in the desert’ has become one of sport’s great oxymorons but the arid landscape of the Middle East is now punctuated by some of the world’s finest golf courses. Since Emirates Golf Club opened in 1988 as, quite literally, a green oasis in the desert, the UAE’s golf profile and its role in the global game has grown enormously. The history of golf in the Gulf The Majlis Course at Emirates Golf Club has hosted...

If I had to get a breast cancer diagnosis, I might want it to come from Dr Stephen Grobmyer — chair of the oncology unit, professor of surgery and director of breast cancer surgery at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.  There are few families untouched by breast cancer at this point. Almost all of us have supported family members and friends through scares, diagnosis and treatment. We’ve lost people to breast cancer, or know someone who...

In a special briefing on the subject, NCEMA advised residents to wear a mask...
