Sheikh Mohammed launches UAE Pioneers

The UAE Pioneers initiative recognising leaders of progress in the society has been launched for its second edition, ahead of the 44th National Day.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, called on the community to nominate “creative citizens” serving their country through their ideas and visions.

“This initiative is an effort to thank and honour these creative citizens who have left their imprints in the UAE’s progressive march, and their contributions will always be appreciated by the people of this country,” said Sheikh Mohammed.

Forty-three people were honoured last year, including the first doctor, inventor, professor, broadcaster, policewoman and other personalities, he said.

“By honouring the pioneers, we want to inspire in every person in the UAE the quest to attain the first position in their field of work and specialisation.

“We want to immortalise their names in history just as they have immortalised the name of the UAE through their work.”

The initiative is part of the National Day celebrations on December 2. Emiratis can nominate themselves or others as pioneers in areas including education, health, the economy, military, sport and innovation.

Barack Obama wins historic US election

Obama is the first person of African-American descent to be nominated by a major American political party for President,[2] and the first person of African American descent to be elected President of the United States of America. A graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he became the first black person to serve as president of the Harvard Law Review, Obama worked as a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. Following an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, he announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003. After a primary victory in March 2004, Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004. He was elected to the Senate in November 2004 with 70 percent of the vote.

As a member of the Democratic minority in the 109th Congress, he helped create legislation to control conventional weapons and to promote greater public accountability in the use of federal funds. He also made official trips to Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. During the 110th Congress, he helped create legislation regarding lobbying and electoral fraud, climate change, nuclear terrorism, and care for returned U.S. military personnel. Obama announced his presidential campaign in February 2007, and was formally nominated at the 2008 Democratic National Convention with Delaware senator Joe Biden as his running mate. Obama won the 2008 presidential election and will take the oath of office and become the 44th President of the United States on January 20, 2009.

More salik toll gates in Dubai this september

Two more Salik toll gates will be installed in Dubai – one each on Al Maktoum Bridge and between the First and the Second Interchanges on Shaikh Zayed Road. This was announced by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

“The installation of the new toll gates comes as part of the second phase of the Salik system to regulate traffic on Dubai Roads,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA. The new toll gates will start working from September 9.

Recently Dubai RTA opened the new Al Garhoud Bridge with 14 lanes 7 on each side of the road. Al Garhoud Bridge will have a capacity for 16,000 vehicles per hour. This is such a great bridge. But the sad thing was no one was using it as it was having a salik gate in front of it. Everyone was using Al Maktoum Bridge. There is big traffic congestion on this side. Once the if the put this Salik gate if people wants to goto Shaikh Zayed Road they have to pay Salik.

Lot of discussion is happening everywhere that Dubai is taxing the people. I strongly believe that they are trying to make lot of people life’s better. This toll system is there in lot of major cities in the world where they want to control the traffic flow. Dubai is not the first in this. We should be happy that they are not up to the biggest toll gate or most no of toll gates in the world is in Dubai 😀
