If, at the start of 2022, you’d been asked to predict the author who would dominate worldwide bestseller lists, it’s unlikely you’d have immediately directed people towards a 42-year-old Texan with a string of well-thumbed, if unremarkable, romantic thrillers, comedies, ghost stories and the odd excursion into YA. And yet. At the time of writing Colleen Hoover has, amid the usual John Grishams, Stephen Kings and Lee Childs, four of the top 10 New York...

A genuine moment in the history and journey of the UAE is happening this week, and it will arrive in a flash of heat, light and noise. Floridian weather and launch conditions permitting (the launch was already postponed once, to Thursday) 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. And when the Rashid Rover tentatively leaves its lander...

Flu cases this winter season are up by at least 70 percent compared to last year as Covid-19-related precautions have gone down, according to an expert. Earlier this year, the UAE eased coronavirus restrictions, almost two and half years after the pandemic began, as the number of cases dropped in the Gulf country. However, influenza or common cold cases have spiked massively since the onset of the winter season in September. Dr Mohammed AlJeaidi, a...

An orange sun splits across the African plains as the king of the jungle prowls through the wilderness, his magnificent black mane glimmering in the morning rays. Suddenly he whips his head in our direction, his nostrils flaring dangerously as our eyes lock with the predator in our midst. “I’m not actually king of the Pride Lands,” he growls. “Though I should be by right.” The lion in question is none other than Scar actor...

Most of us are familiar with the story of the young lion cub who faces love, loss, betrayal and tragedy in his rise to become king of the Pride Lands. But there’s way more to this tale than the big five rampaging around the plains of wildest Africa.
