We’ve all read — and tried to ignore — the headline-grabbing surveys laden with worryingly dismal outlooks for our health. The most recent tranche of bad news suggested the UAE has one of the highest rates of both cardiovascular disease and diabetes in the world. Half of heart attack patients here are under 50.

If you’ve strolled through Mall of The Emirates in Dubai in the last six months, a shiny new store just across from Harvey Nichols may have caught your eye.

The UAE is getting ready for a genuine moment in its history and journey of the UAE, and it will arrive in a flash of heat, light and noise. Floridian weather and launch conditions permitting, the incredible 1.7 million pound thrust of Falcon 9’s reusable rocket will power the first Emirates Lunar Mission on its four-month journey to the Moon.

Increasingly, the program at Dubai’s Emirates Airline Festival of Literature is tapping into the power books have to encourage positive change in our wellbeing, eating habits and general attitude to life. Indeed, this year’s theme, Here comes the sun, is in many ways a reflection of such optimism — and over two weekends in February in the festival’s new surroundings at the Habtoor City Hotels, its psychology, wellness and food strands offer a wide range...
