Where is Kuwait’s beauty?
The measure of success for strategic plans lies in active participation in the implementation process. Conversely, centralization signifies failure. In Kuwait, we have six governorates, each delineated by clear boundaries marked by signs in the streets (eg, welcome to Ahmadi governorate). However, these signs hold little significance as governors lack sufficient authority over their respective geographical areas. As a result, there is little to...

Mohammad Al-Sharekh: Lover of Arabic language

This unfortunate reality underscores the nature of political battles, where narratives are often embellished with exaggerations and falsehoods about opponents rather than focusing on achievements.Throughout history, politics worldwide has been built on deception. In the past, German politicians during...

Our youth are perishable cells
Biologists, scientists who study biology with a particular interest in cytology, assert that living cells are more sensitive while in the growing stage, whereas mature cells are harder to damage. As a specialist in radiology treating cancer cells, I can attest to the validity and accuracy of this information.

Each year, during the month of Ramadan, many people attempt to benefit from this distinguished period to seek positive changes in their lives. However, it is likely that many will fail in improving their lives, as those who seek change only during special occasions often face challenges.
