For most runners, aside from those intrepid zealots chasing ultra-distances, the marathon represents the pinnacle of their sport. On Friday November 26 2021, the ADNOC Abu Dhabi Marathon returns to give entrants in the UAE capital an opportunity to reach their own milestones by completing 42 kilometers.  It is the third incarnation of the Abu Dhabi Marathon and after a two-year, Covid-enforced wait, the 2021 edition promises a new, faster route that is focused around...

Graphene. You might have heard about it. But if you haven’t, it’s coming your way in more forms than you can possibly imagine — from water desalination, to car parts, to sport equipment and T-shirts even.

But as lockdown hit, and personal contact became restricted, they found themselves starting to drift apart. Even when restrictions began to lift, Zainab still didn’t feel safe enough to venture out, and refused to meet up with Soraya, who was eager to get back...

Going back to school is more than a little different this year and that means supply lists have changed, too. While the mainstays, including backpacks, pencils and crayons, are still very much in demand, students will need personal safety products as well. These essentials will set students up for a successful academic year and give you peace of mind at the same time. Stylish masks Unlike last year, when many activities were restricted, this school...

Thanks to the valiant efforts of teachers and parents alike, virtual learning has kept school afloat for many during the initial lockdown and as the pandemic continues.
