Third Culture Kids are those who have spent a portion of their formative years in a different culture — both from their friends back home, but from their parents, as well.  In the UAE, where expats represent 88 per cent of the population, TCKs abound.

Downloaded on three billion cell phones – more than the population of China and India together – TikTok’s revenues last year amounted to US$34 billion – more than the individual GDP of half the world’s countries.

The sun’s rays are all our bodies need to generate the vitamin D that is so essential to our health and, as those of us making it through another long hot summer in the region well know, there is no shortage of those in the Gulf. So why is it that the Middle East and North Africa region consistently has some of the highest rates of vitamin D deficiency in the world? And, as a...

In The Me You Can’t See, the Apple TV mental health documentary series with Oprah Winfrey, Britain’s Prince Harry is seen undergoing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It’s a type of therapy that is recommended by the World Health Organization to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In one clip, we see Harry close his eyes, cross his arms and start tapping his shoulders — known in EMDR as bilateral stimulation — while recalling a...
