    The family unit in the United Arab Emirates is an important social unit for an Arab. Loyalty to family or surname influences all aspects of family life and society United Arab Emirates. The Arab honor and respect for his family, particularly children. Therefore, it is very paternalistic, patriarchal and hierarchical, with elders and parents who make the decisions.

    UAE national families are large, with families citing God going from one to procreate. Therefore, the bigger the better, giving economic and spiritual benefit. Children, when growing older are expected to care for parents, especially for children that much to bear the financial burden, if necessary. Also, it is noted thatlarger families demonstrate the virility of the father.

    As far as fidelity passes, family comes first, then clan and tribe. The UAE nationals also reflect national identity and, moreover, are proud of their culture. There is also a strong loyalty to the royal families. Demonstrating this includes photos of the leaders in all walks of life. The UAE Nationals his beloved founding father, Sheikh Zayed, and there was massive show of grief over his death. The people still comment on their generosity for what he did for them and for the construction of the UAE.

    Women

    Women are respected in the UAE society, as they are the ones who bring life in the world, and raise children. This perception is lost in the west, where it is seen that they are subordinate to men, but increasingly, woman are most prominent in the workplace and in other walks of life. Some guidelines for the West are: respect for privacy and the role of women in society; stand when a woman enters the room, and I understand that there are many households in different areas of residence, so that when you visit a house, you wouldn’t socialize with women.

    Things that men should not include:
    – Do not talk publicly professionals UAE National Women, unless it is business related. You will understand that when they are allowed to cross the limit, when approached to discuss other matters
    – Do not shake hands with a UAE National female, unless prompted.
    – Suffice it to say, not flirting, touching or embracing women
    – Do not look at women or maintain eye contact
    – Do not ask an Arab man about his wife or female members of his family

    of course, it’s better to be strict in yourself first, to understand the situation, and with Western values, and an increasingly diverse society to make up, things are changing, but traditions remain and what is best to take this into account.

    Skin treatment when you are younger is different when you get older. So if you are experiencing all those skin complaints from back in the days, you cannot just simply do your remedies before as your skin has probably changed over time and will also require a new remedial approach. Here are some of the most common remedies you might have done before, and what you should do now.

    Back then, you might have scoured your face every chance you get. Now, you must not cleanse more than twice a day. Over washing dries your skin and it washes away natural oils that your face needs. The best thing to do is to look for a cleanser with salicylic acid to break up pore clogging caused by sebum, and glycerin which acts as skin softener. If you have a sensitive or extra dry skin, try searching for a milder product.

    Back then, you might have used to apply degreaser to mask up or soak oil. Now, you must exfoliate your skin, not to degrease. Skin cell turnover slows down when you grow older. Chances are your pores will get clogged with dead cells. Instead of degreasing, use facial scrub once or twice a month to exfoliate your skin. Also, if the oiliness has cause regular break out, use a product with 10% glycolic acid. If it is just an occasional pimple appearance, use lactic acid for a gentler choice.

    Back then, you might have slathered 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. Now, you must opt to use those which contain 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide only as higher concentration might irritate and leave your skin dry. If your breakout is seasonal, start your pimple treatment two weeks prior the start of your pimple appearances.

    Back then, you might have sworn off all moisturizers. Now, you must use oil-free lotions to smooth out your skin. During morning, use sunscreen over your Benzoyl Peroxide and at night, use retinol treatment.

    Skin remedies that you used to do when you are younger might have different effects if you use it now, especially if your skin has aged well. Use only the best products for your skin by following our personal beauty blog for application tips and ideas. If your treatment for skin complaints did not work effectively, make it a habit to consult your doctor.

    Many men and women consider getting plastic surgery due to many perceived imperfections or flaws in their body. On the other hand there are also some individuals who really need operations to improve and restore the function and form of their bodies. There are so many advantages and disadvantages under the different procedures that fall under it.

    Advantages
    The biggest merit that can be attributed to any cosmetic operation is the satisfaction and the joy that usually comes with a successful operation. Most patients who go under the knife come out from the recovery period satisfied and full of praise for their doctors. The improvement itself is another physical and mental advantage that gives the patient much confidence and eases her worries.

    Plastic surgery also gives back, either fully or partially, the form and function that a damaged organ or part of the body may have had. Many deformed children and adults experience normalcy after reconstructive procedures that are aimed to help them.

    Disadvantages
    Despite the general optimism that patients usually have for their procedures, there are risks that accompany these. The risks and complications that can happen during and after the operation are some of the biggest disadvantages of plastic surgery. During surgery, the patient can bleed excessively or react adversely to the anesthetic used on her.

    Cases like these can basically escalate to a dangerous situation that may turn out fatal or dangerous for the patient. Other disadvantages of the procedure are the dissatisfaction that comes when the patient has high expectations that are not met by the operation. This is where it is emphasized by the doctors that the patient should not have unrealistic expectations regarding the changes that the surgery can bring.

    Overall, plastic surgery is safe but it is expensive. If your only option to fix a problem is plastic surgery then it is well worth the money. For example, a lot of women who experience stretched skin from pregnancy opt in for tummy tucks to fix the problem because they cannot fix it on their own. Or if you have been in an accident and you need reconstructive surgery to fix injuries you have obtained, it may be well worth the money. But, if you are having self confidence issues plastic surgery may not be worth the money.

    The overall advantages of any cosmetic procedure are greater than the disadvantages. This is probably because many of the disadvantages can be prevented avoided through modern medicine. Tests and screenings can also help to establish if the person is a viable candidate to undergo certain operations. Advancement in medicine and science has made so many procedures safe and reduced the risks of some.

    Who else really wants to remember their past lives? Are you curious about the REAL meaning of your life? Are you a true blue believer that past lives or reincarnation is REAL….and that we all have the power to access these memories with practice? Are you curious if THIS life bears the brunt of traumas, or experiences or even LOVE affairs with soulmates you’ve met in a previous existence? If you said yes, stay tuned while I reveal my FAVORITE way for tapping into the power of past lives from home!

    Can I REALLY learn how to remember past lives with practice?

    I say YES! As a matter of fact, I truly believe that each and every one of us has the power, and potential to recall many previous incarnations, simply through a combination of practice, intention, mediation and technology. You can also talk to a therapist and have a regression done, which is very effective….but expensive, and often unnecessary if you follow the below approach instead.

    What is my FAVORITE way to induce past life recall?

    Honestly? The MOST effective technique for me has been using guided meditations, subliminal messaging and hemi sync or binural beats for brain entrainment. (just a scientific way of explaining how to enter an altered state through the use of sound)

    Why is this a superior approach to therapy, drugs or hypnosis regression?

    First of all…it’s FASTER! You can literally have your first memories within a few short hours using nothing but focused intention, music or sound and all while sitting on your sofa! That makes it easier as well….and in MY opinion, the memories tend to be much more accurate too. Why? Because in my view, you can’t always TRUST the past lives you remember during regression, or during therapy, or even during a psychic reading as they are possibly being affected by suggestion.

    Experiences you have by yourself, when your mind is in a totally relaxed, open and hyper aware state…are ALWAYS more powerful, more realistic and more personally transformative to boot! (or at least if YOURS are anywhere as powerful as mine!)

    Warning! Don’t get scammed by another “fake” Psychic EVER Again!

    Skeptical? Good! Get a Genuine Psychic Reading Here!

    Becoming a medical assistant presents the unique opportunity for someone to pursue a career in which they are able to take on meaningful work while simultaneously earning a competitive salary. It is without a doubt that there are a number of benefits in becoming a medical assistant. Take for example that the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics reported jobs for medical assistants will grow by thirty four percent through 2018, meaning those entering the field will have a very high chance of being employed. What are often times left out of the conversation about pursuing the position of medical assistant, however, are the challenges one must face upon gaining employment.

    Much like the position of a nurse or doctor, a medical assistant faces an abnormal amount of stress in the workplace. This is due to the work at hand: medical assistants deal with life or death situations such as serious surgeries and potentially harmful operations. Unlike most other professions, when a medical assistant makes a mistake it could cost someones life. Additionally, many medical assistants have noted that doctors tend to be very stern or condescending towards them, often times taking their superior position a bit too far. Experts recommend that those looking to become medical assistants should be able to work competently under stressful situations and have many refer to as thick skin when dealing their superiors.

    While the standard job for Americans operates from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday, medical assistants are often expected to work additional hours, nights, and weekends. Depending on where a medical assistant is employed be it inpatient, outpatient, hospital, medical office, or clinic they may be expected to work around the clock or at odd hours depending on the centers unique needs. Also, because medical assistants are often designated to work with specific patients they might have to work undesirable hours depending on emergencies, complications, or a patients needs. Medical assistants have reported extreme fatigue and exhaustion from working long, odd hours and end up feeling worn down by the end of a work week.

    With any job, it is very important to consider every aspect before jumping into the field head first. While the position of medical assistant has a number of perks, it is important to consider the significant amount of stress and fatigue that medical assistants have reported as a result of their job.

    Signifying gender clash, members of both sexes, especially when in the comfort of unisex gatherings, have expressed deficiencies in the opposite sex. You know what men are like and you know what women are like are the usual comments. In todays real competitive world, the question asked above has become more important.

    History, unfortunately, has not been kind to women. They were suppressed, almost in every culture- at least, over the last 2000-3000 yrs. They were said to be less intelligent, passive, emotional and much more. Not only men, even women thought that those assertions were gospel truths. They hardly ever protested. It became a way of life. As a concept, it fitted very well in the making of a stable society, where men worked outside and women worked at home.

    As if they were locked at home, women were neither accessible for study nor were known properly. Not only the lay, even poets, who gave direction to the society, openly said that women were a mystery. Even women did not know about themselves. Far from showing power, ignorance made them suffer so much. Looking back, even men feel sorry for the suffering women had to go through then.

    Parallel to other changes, there have been radical changes in relation to women in the last century. However, with men, even many women, resolutely guarding the status quo, getting education, as a start, was a big struggle for women. But then, once they gained education, their horizon of thought broadened. Women’s empowerment thus began. In addition, although Right of Man- a produce of French revolution, did little for women, it certainly made them- especially the feminists, aware of their rights. Feminists struggled hard for womens rights.

    Following a long struggle, women are now able to express themselves in a coherent way and scientists are able to study them better. Books and journals are full of research papers dealing with them. Now we know that women are better off biologically. They survive birth trauma better, live longer and can withstand stress more. In addition, while their beauty helps them in beauty mad world, enhancing beauty, use of cosmetics, ornaments and colourful dresses give them an edge. Following sexual revolution, they have been able to use their sex power, as never before. In a competitive world, these and other factors matter a lot.

    Unlike many centuries available to men, availing just a single century, they have shown success in so many fields. Their lack of success in politics is simply due to selection procedure followed by parties. Although seen to be empowerment of women, it is their exceptional power, which is clearly seen in the success statistics. The question is, will this success go on? Almost as an answer, like a mans world of today, the book, Womens Power: Its Past, Its present, Its Future: Femocracy, makes a case for womans world in the future.

    Before breaking into the fashion world, Don Ed Hardy was a tattoo artist from Southern California. He was born in 1945 and graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. In 1973, he had the opportunity to study Japanese tattoo design under Horihide, a master of classical Japanese tattoo. Don Ed Hardy’s tattoos are one-of-a-kind and recognised around the world.

    He and his wife have published a series of books about alternative art, under the label of Hardy Marks Publications. Hardy’s publishing career began with his five-part series “Tattootime.” He now has over 25 publications to his name, including many catalogs of his work.

    Although Hardy no longer tattoos, he still oversees the work done at his studio, Tattoo City in San Francisco. He continues to concentrate on other art forms, including printmaking, painting and drawing, using his distinctive style.

    In 2002, Hardy made the move into the world of fashion, licensing Ku USA to begin production of clothing using his artwork and style. Saks noticed the colorful and unique designs and began to distribute the clothing. Hardy formed an LLC with Ku USA, called Hardy Life.

    The Ed Hardy clothing line was later licensed to Christian Audigier in 2004, following a chance meeting. Celebrities quickly picked up on the new fashion line and a new trend was born: tattoo fashion. Ed Hardy stores were opened in fashion districts, including New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. Devotees of the brand consider it more of a lifestyle celebrating tattoo art, rather than simply clothing to wear.

    An Ed Hardy line is also available for kids. The line features clothing ranging from baby sizes all the way up to clothing for teens, available up to size 16. Items available include designer T-shirts, hoodies, dresses, jeans and even school supplies featuring tattoo artwork.

    A line of professional styling tools marketed under the Ed Hardy name was introduced in 2010. The tools, all featuring the Ed Hardy name and artwork, include items like styling irons, blow dryers and hair accessories.

    The Christian Audigier fragrance line first introduced Ed Hardy fragrances in 2008. The first offerings were Ed Hardy for women and Ed Hardy for men. The feminine version brings to life the vibrant tattoo art. The bright fruity scents of mango, strawberries and grapefruit are instant attention grabbers, the fragrant representation of the blazing colors in the artwork. Ed Hardy for men is woody and aromatic, with mandarin orange, bergamot and sage at the top, a hint of mint and a deep base of amber and musk.

    These fragrances were followed by other in the series, including Hearts and Daggers, Love and Luck, Born Wild and Villain. Most of the fragrances in the Ed Hardy collection are available in both men’s and women’s versions.

    Years ago, when cinema first became popular, for a lot of people it was the only way for them to see movies, because most of them didn’t have their own televisions. The thing is though, cinema has always had a much better quality viewing experience than home televisions, so it has remained the ultimate way to experience a movie.

    The Invention of Video Tapes

    For a long time, the one problem with both cinema and TV is that you needed to watch a film at a specific time. With the invention of home video systems such as VHS and Betamax, movie fans were able to either record films from the TV or rent films from a video library. However, there was still the problem of quality, as cinema was still a far superior experience than watching a video at home.

    The Rise of DVDs

    Part of the quality issue was dramatically improved with the invention of the DVD. DVD meant that anyone could watch very high quality digital video at home. Unlike VHS tapes for example, DVDs didnt wear out or degrade over time, as long as you didnt get the discs scratched. From the 1990’s onwards, DVDs became extremely popular amongst movie fans. The only problem was, unless you had an extremely large TV screen and a very expensive sound system, you still wouldn’t get the same experience as the cinema.

    The Experience of Home Cinema

    Nowadays, the true home cinema experience is becoming much more of a reality for many people, as they buy large widescreen TVs and high quality speakers. For example, with a plasma TV screen of 50 inches or more, and being sat closer to the screen than you would be in a cinema, youre going to get a very cinematic feel. And you wont miss having someone sat behind you who wont stop talking through every scene.

    Reasons to Visit the Cinema

    However, even with home cinema quality jumping forwards in leaps and bounds, dont you think theres still something missing? Theres just something about actually going out to the cinema. It gives you a reason to spend time with your friends and experience something together. And lets face it: in all honesty, the experience at home really isnt quite as good as the full blown cinema experience, is it?

    Why You Should Still Stay at Home Instead

    The only problem with visiting the cinema is that it costs you more money than it does to just stay at home with a DVD. But also, when you’re at home, you can fit your movie watching around the other things you want to do. You can also eat your own food. Just relax and watch your favourite movie while eating your dinner.
