Kuwait and Strikes and Missinformation

People been talking a lot about strikes in Kuwait , but i noticed many false information , and since as always the government is the worst defense attorney
I would like to present some Information

الناس وايد يتكلمون هالايام عن الاضرابات بالكويت و لاحظت وايد معلومات مغلوطه حبيت اصحح بعض المعومات

* Reagan Fired all Air Controllers because they went on Strike why not do it in Kuwait
ريغان طرد المراقبين الجويين لانهم دخلو في اضراب ، ليش ما نطرد المضربين بالكويت

Reagan Did Fire ALL Air Controllers who went on strike , but before we brandish this as a way to solve the current strikes you need to remmber these thing
-They have a LAW called Taft-Hartley Act [Wiki Link] that does state that the president of the United States can stop a strike in case on national Emergency
-The Transportation Secretary established a plan that returned flights

نعم ريغان طرد كل المراقبيين الجويين المشاركين بالإضراب ، بس قبل ما نعتقد ان هذا هو الحل لمشاكلنا لنتذكر الاتي
– لديهم قانون تافت هارتلي و الذي يمنح رئيس الولايات المتحده الامريكية السلطة في انهاء الاضراب في حالة اضراره بالامن القومي
– وزير النقل الامريكي كان لدية خطة لمواجهه المضربين و تم تنفيذها و التي ادت الي جهوزية الطيران في وقت قياسي

* Why can’t we do that in Kuwait ?
– WE have no laws that deal with strikes ( either Banning or giving your the right to strike , very ambiguous)
– We never Have a backup Plan ( This is Kuwait after all )

* لماذا لا نستطيع ان نفعل نفش الشيء في الكويت ؟
– ” لا يوجد لدينا قوانين في الكويت تنضم الاضراب ” لا منعه و لا تقنينه
– ” لا يوجد لدينا اي خطة بديلة ” و الدليل الحالة البائسه التي مررنا بها لإضراب الجمارك

The Art of Wasting resources

Kuwait is amazing with Wasting of resources
and our lovely candidates aren’t far away from it

Lets give an example here

Aseel AlAwadi اسيل العوضي
has a Twitter account with a huge following (100,000+ )

but does she use it for her campain ? no , she create another account ( which had less than 400 followers when i was writing this post )

Why make a new account ? use your account ! clearly more people check YOUR account to know about YOUR campaign

speaking of creating new when old was good and working

She made a new site ( with no content yet )


which is strange since her old site is still working aseel

( not updated much )

If the candidate ( ex-member ) can’t focus his resources why would i trust he can do the same to Kuwait ?

Angelina Jolie Pass by Kuwait ?

Its been reported that Angelina Jolie is going to be playing the part of Gertrude Bell [Gertrude Bell Archive][Wikepeida]

Now Gertrude Bell passed by Kuwait in her travels , she is more known for her work in Iraq , there are mentions of Kuwait in her diaries

Why i bring that up you may wonder , its just reminded me of the idea i had long time ago , of a movie based on another traveler , Alan Villiers book ” Sons Of Sindbad”


I think a movie based on this book would be more interesting that a story about a British archaeology lady ( since its not the other one with dual guns )
having read the book many times , the book has its share of action , drama , suspense and a little bit of comedy

hell it has its controversies also ( which the both the Arabic translator and Kuwait editor of the English version object to )

I hope one day someone do a movie based on this book ( or better yet , Me )

another item to add to long term projects

Where is the Creditability AlQabas ?

So AlQabas has this section with comments on Ramadan programs , during the last week of Ramadan they started using Tweets from Kuwaitis commenting on Ramadan programming

Some Tweeters were not amused that they just used the Tweets without Credits

So AlQabas just decided to write the name of the tweeter but no the link or the user name he use so you you will have to search and search to find him
for example today they have [Link][Arabic Pdf]
and here [Link][Arabic Pdf]

and i’m who is this Sara ? have you tried searching for just sara on Twitter ?
But hey , its Traditional newspaper in Kuwait , and for some reason they hate Internet

Then in today Issue today they list some comedy tweets about Qaddafi and what i see ? [link][Arabic PDF]

Wait a minute ? why every Twitter user is listed here and not just names and let search as you been doing for Kuwaiti users ?
Do the other Arabic Twitter User deserve recondition but Kuwaiti do not ?

Analyzing Ramadan 2011 TV ad : Qualitynet

I think a lot have seen the New Qualitynet Ad for Ramadan

( if embed didn’t work , try this link QualityNet Ramadan Ad )

What it seem is that Qualitynet have no idea what they paid for , first its not an ad for their service , the director was going for a comedy sketch , not to mention it show Qualitynet service as bad

lets dissect this ad

First guy ask his maid to Make an Egg-omelette for him and what does she says ( while clicking on the laptop )
“We don’t have ” ” ماكو ”

What is she is “We don’t have ” , not i don’t want to , but we don’t have
So they are missing something to make Egg-omelette
and since the maid is internet Savvy , she can use Laptop , she was going to order egg
but since the man seem to be in the mood of Youtube he blow all his bandwith cap and she couldn’t reach taw9eel Page

This guy is working in a company ( clear from the setting ) , and he says the project is finished and he keep on asking for more time to send it to the other guy
Qualitynet introduced Smart connection for businesses [AlQabas][Arabic]
So this guy is suffering

Now this is a student , who is trying to access his e-mail but can’t , and keep asking his private tutor for a bit more time
So its slow for him also , AKa he has slow Service

And before you say maybe that is them suffering before , no at the end of the AD , they all appear and say
“Our Speed is Qualitynet , nothing is like it ”

So to recap
The Director made a Couple short comedy sketch’s
The Ad tell us Qualitynet services are bad
The Ad tell us people in Kuwait don’t care about bad service they are still happy
