Short and sweet post of the day-
I heard that Arwa (owned by The CocaCola Company) implants had been using sewage water in the water they’re selling? I know water treatment plants treat sewage and waste water till it’s safe to drink, but apparently there’s backlash as to how clean this water actually is? A friend of mine told me that all the water has been recalled and thrown up because it’s unsafe.
Has anyone heard about any of this? Is it true?
According to an article in Kuwait Times published on Tuesday, an Ethiopian women held in the Salmiya Police Station killed her own baby minutes after he was born. The incident took place on Sunday but was only discovered on Monday when they found the woman bleeding heavily. When her cellmates were questioned about the incident, no one had much to say. They later discovered that he had threatened to kill anyone who had anything to say about what she done. One of the women finally spoke up and admitted that the Ethiopian woman did in fact “selfabort” the night before. When the baby was born ALIVE, she continued to suffocate the baby and then dump him in a plastic bag and threw him in the garbage. Criminal investigators were called to the scene and the baby’s body was taken for forensic testing which affirmed his time of death.
Her reasoning behind the baby’s murder was so that her illegal relationship wouldn’t be discovered. This monster is in the hospital now under close surveillance, and upon her release, she will be tried for accounts of murder, adultery, abortion, and others.
What kind of person would be able to kill a new born who has no one in the world but you? Regardless of what the issue is. Thoughts?

If anyone was around Al-Rai area earlier last week, they might have been stopped by a “police man”. This guy dressed as a police officer took it upon himself to create a checkpoint and stop everyone. Nearby mall security got suspicious since this genius was wearing the summer uniform, anyway, they called the actual police and they showed up at the scene eventually.
When Mr. Policeman was asked about his identity, he insisted that he was indeed a police officer. After much interrogation, they found out who this guy was and came to the conclusion that he was a Syrian man in his mid-twenties.
The whole point of his little stunt was to prove to his girlfriend that he was Kuwaiti AND employed in the Ministry of Interior. Lol, if that’s not sad, I don’t know what it is. Guys, be proud of where you come from and what you do. If you need to lie to her about your passport, I promise you, she’s not worth it.
This little Einstein is now being held in custody until they figure out what to do with him. Thoughts?

According to an article I found on Forbes, President Obama is keen to getting rid of the American Penny. His argument is that there are over 6 billion people who have phones, so why not go on with making payments through their mobile phones? It won’t be much later till all physical evidence of both paper money and coins will be a thing of the past. Payments for virtually everything will be done through fingerprints or mobile phones.
There’s an NFC chip inside most mobile phone chips that can transmit banking and payment data when placed near certain card readers. According to forbes.com, “a debit card, a mobile phone can display interactive payment details. And, instead of the credit card application process of filling out paperwork and waiting for the mail, using a mobile phone to pay requires only the download of an app and linking to bank details. PayPal president, David Marcus, calls it Money 3.0.”
This notion has started in Kuwait through a company called Borolo. Basically, all you have to do is go to a Second Cup or a Coffee Republic and they’ll give you a sticker to place on the back of your phone and voila! This feature is only available for Viva users for now, but soon this notion will be widespread in all shops and telephones. Also, what’s amazing about this is that it doesn’t need to be a smart phone! Even if you’re using an ancient phone and have no cash on you, you can still have yummy coffee.
If you pay your phone bill at the end of every month, it just adds to the overall payment; and if you recharge your phone, it deducts from your credit. You don’t need to pay anything extra for a subscription. What do you guys think of mobile payments? Are you with or against it?

Apparently all women in Iran that are to play for the National Team need to go through mandatory gender tests to prove that they are actually women and haven’t undergone any gender changing operations. These “random” checks have been issued after loads of different “women” four of which are members of the national team were found to have gone through gender changing surgeries. They varied from men who had not yet gone through with the gender change surgery, or were suffering from sexual development issues.
Iran has legalized gender change operations according to a Fatwa, or religious ruling, pronounced by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Medical examiners will turn up unannounced at training sessions of teams playing in Iran’s women’s premier league, as well as those playing in the indoor league, known as footsal.
Ahmad Hashemian, head of the Iranian football federation’s medical committee, said “Those unable to prove they are female would be barred from taking part in the women’s leagues until they underwent medical treatment”
I thought this was pretty funny considering how strict Iran was and how proper everyone there is. I didn’t know sex change operations were legal in Iran, and I’m sure a gazzillion other people didn’t either. Anyway, I thought I would share this with you! Lemme know what you think.
I think it’s really sad how workers in this country get treated on a daily basis. I have countlessly witnessed people abusing domestic workers regardless of if they were the street cleaners or maids.
I’m gonna go on a rant, but I can’t wrap my head around people who have kids and then have their nanny’s take care of them? Why? I understand that some women may be working moms, my mom was, and we had a baby sister to make sure we didn’t kill ourselves while she was at work and clean, but other than that my mom was our mom. My mom took us to parks, my mom fed and cooked for us, my mom was the one who carried us as children, not the nanny. You don’t have kids so someone else can raise them, you have kids so you can give another human being a part of your soul, your life, your everything.
Anyway, not my point. These poor workers haven’t gotten paid for the past 4 months, work in poor working conditions, and get zero respect from more privileged individuals. Imagine what it’s like to be paid, what? like 20 KD a month, stuck in a room with 40 other people and have to be awake at the crack of dawn to pick up other people’s garbage just to send home a couple bills to try and keep your family alive.
It’s sad. Bend down and pick up something, then throw it on the floor again and pick it up. Do that a couple times and see how good your back feels. Someone the age of your father does this for a living. People are so cruel and disrespectful it’s horrible.
Do good, everyone is fighting their own battles just to survive everyday. Be thankful for everything you’ve got, there are millions of people around the world who would be thrilled to have a roof over their heads.

So, we’ve all heard about the deportation laws when someone’s caught speeding and what not, and I’m sure many other, myself included, have taken very lightly to it. BUT to much of my surprise, HUNDRED’s have already been deported in the last month for traffic violations alone, and this has raised many concerns for human rights groups in the nation.
According to telegraph.co.uk, a senior interior ministry official said that as many as 1,258 foreigners have been deported for traffic violations since a crackdown began about a month ago, according to the Al-Anbaa newspaper.
There are new computer systems installed in police cars where they don’t need to stop you to know if your papers have expired, instead they just scan your license plate number and all your information pops us. Fun stuff, ehh?
The Kuwait Society for Human Rights called on the government to halt the deportations describing them as “oppressive”.
“The oppressive measure against expatriates… violates the basic principles of human rights,” it said.
So be safe and make sure you’re all legally driving, please. If you’re gonna get in trouble and get kicked out of the country, at least let it be something worth it, not passing a red light or having expired papers. I know the ministry systems and the process of getting things done here is ridiculous, but it’s honestly not worth it.
Be safe x

I was scrolling through my Facebook and came across an article that made me sick to my stomach. Long story short, a girl called Kim Pham was minding her own business outside of a club minding her own business when she accidentally walked into a photograph that was being taken and ended up basically being battered to death.
Even though this took place in beautiful California it scares to death how cruel people are. There are videos of people’s recordings of the incident and it’s absolutely disgusting that there were so many bi-standards who did absolutely nothing to stop what happened.
Anyway, this girl was brutally beat and left to die on the side walk, she was announced brain dead the next day when her parents decided to take her off life support. I’ll add the link to the whole story and leave the comments up to you.
