Laysh: to read or not to read is an initiative that calls upon people across Qatar (and internationally!) to upload a 1-2 minute video about their relationship with reading.
Here are some videos that I watched:
The son of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, is celebrating his graduation at Harvard University.
After completing his BA degree at Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar, he went to do his Masters in the US.
Congratulations from all of us on your achievements!
Under the patronage of H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa Bint Hamad Al Thani - Chairperson of Qatar Museums Authority The 1st Red Bull Flugtag Qatar will visit Doha on November 1, taking take place at the Museum of Islamic Art Park.
Flying has always been a dream for everyone. In the 19th century, Arab inventor Abbas Ibn Firnas designed a flying machine consisting of a structure and large wings, and tried to fly.
He succeeded for a short distance. However, today, creative designers in Qatar are working hard on designing flying machines that might make their dream come true at the 1st Red Bull Flugtag Qatar.
Is anyone interested in starting a book club with me in Doha?
we can meet once a month, or once in two weeks, and discuss the book we all decide to read together...

The Doha Players are proud to present the Doha premiere of “Hot Mikado”, opening at Awsaj Academy Auditorium 29th May to 1st June 2013.
Featuring well-drawn comic characters, toe tapping music, witty dialogue, and vibrantly coloured sets and costumes this show guarantees a fun night at the theatre.
Originally run in the West End in 1995, east meets west head-on in this hilarious 1940's-style updating of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic.
With the music transformed into jazz, blues, swing and scorching torch songs and 'Three Little Maids' turned into an Andrew Sisters' show-stopper, this zoot-suited, tap-dancing colourful show is certain to provide the ideal evening out for the whole family.
One year ago today, 19 people - mostly small children - lost their lives in what now appears to have been a preventable disaster.
As images spread across the world - of thick smoke billowing from Villaggio mall, of firefighters looking confused and unprepared, of parents breaking down in tears of grief, of lifeless children being pulled from the roof - the question on everyone’s lips was, “Why? Why is this happening?”
In the days after the fire, local media and government officials called for action and accountability, and for lessons to be learned. But a year later, those voices have all gone quiet.
However, Doha News has taken coverage of this story seriously, and sought to bring a critical depth of reporting to Qatar’s community over the past year.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) in collaboration with Maersk Oil Qatar, launched a new national brand “One Second” for road safety today, during a press conference at Grand Hyatt.
The launch took place in the presence of Brigadier Engineer Mohammad Al Malki, Secretary General, National Traffic Safety Committee, Colonel Abdullah Khalifa Al Muftah, Director of Public Relations Department of the MoI, representatives of Maersk Oil Qatar and the press.
The launch was memorable, thanks to the impact it had on the audience, who witnessed a reenactment of an accident.
The presentation focused on the importance of “one second” decisions when driving.
PLAN ONE DAY OUTING TO PURPLE ISLAND - AL KHOR -QATAR
Drive to Al Khor
Go through pass Al Khor town, following the signs to Al Thakhira (nearby town). You will pass second last round-about (Rasgas/Industrial Area R/A) that branched left to Ras Laffan. Go through to Al Thakhira.
Pass the first right turn sign-posted to Al Khor Hospital, continue towards Al Thakhira.
The last round-about is giving you access to Al Khor Community. Ignore this and continue in the direction of Al Thakhira.
At about 2.5km from Rasgas R/A, take the right-hand turn, and go about 5.2 kilometers following this asphalt road. You’ll see on your right a big water tank tower, part of Al Khor Community, with Qatargas and RasGas logo.
