Nokia-branded mobile phones are on sale, once again, and being marketed on the Finnish company's website. For now, the range is limited to some pretty basic models, but that should change when Android-powered smartphones and tablets are added soon. It's thanks to a deal with a small team based at a business park on the fringes of Helsinki, who are engaged in what will seem to many a foolhardy mission. They call themselves HMD Global - and they believe they can make Nokia a big name in mobile phones once again. I met Arto Nummela, Pekka Rantala and Florian Seiche in a cafe on what is still the Nokia campus.
Egypt’s parliament gave a final approval on Monday to the implementation of the long-delayed value-added tax (VAT) at a rate of 13 percent for the current fiscal year. Parliament also increased the list of exempted goods and services to 56 from 52 items. In the next fiscal year, which starts in July 2017, the VAT rate will increase to 14 percent, according to the law, which Ahram Online obtained a copy of. The VAT aims at reducing tax evasion, as it will be applied to each member of the production chain of goods and services at the final retail stage, instead of the current sales tax that is imposed as a one-off on the final sale to customers.
The “UAE Reads” initiative will be launched next Monday under the directions of Sheikha Shamma bint Mohammed bin Khalid Al Nahyan. This cultural initiative is organised under the auspices of the Ministry of Interior, in partnership with the UAE University and the Mohammed bin Khalid Al Nahyan Cultural Center. It also coincides with the Abu Dhabi Book Fair and the “Abu Dhabi Reads” initiative. This event falls within the framework of the UAE’s ‘Year of Reading 2016’ initiative launched by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. Mohammed bin Khalid Al Nahyan will be taking part in the “World’s Largest Reading Hour”, along with more than 2500 ladies, female officials, decision-makers and students, at the UAE University’s main theatre in Al Ain at 2:00 p.m. The event will be attended by representatives of the Guinness World Records Organization, who will witness the UAE’s record attempt for the “Largest Reading Lesson.”

The United Nations' World Refugee Day is observed on June 20 each year. This event honors the courage, strength, and determination of women, men, and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict, and violence. “In countries where people have to flee their homes because of persecution and violence, political solutions must be found, peace and tolerance restored, so that refugees can return home. In my experience, going home is the deepest wish of most refugees.” Angelina Jolie said in an interview with BBC News on April 8, 2004. “No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark.” Part of a poem ‘Home’ by Kenyan-born Somali poet Warsan Shire.
