Comments made on social media by political satirist Bassem Youssef sparked the ire of Egyptians this week, after he insulted the Armed Forces for their involvement in businesses across Egypt. The comments were made amid a current shortage in baby formula, which has several sparked protests led by angry families. The Armed Forces intervened to fill in the shortage. Youssef openly criticised the businesses that are being run by the army, which encompasses nearly all products and services. Youssef further claimed that the army is storing baby formula and creating a monopoly over the product in the market. The army’s business institutions act as a “gang” that do not pay taxes and employ conscripts as unpaid labour, Youssef stated. More»

A boat-shaped hulk of steel and glass at the foot of the world's tallest tower, Dubai's new opera house is set to boost the cultural life of the Gulf's business hub. Workers are putting the final touches on the venue, a short walk from the 828-metre (2,700-foot) Burj Khalifa, as it prepares to host Spanish tenor Placido Domingo at an opening gala on August 31. While Dubai has a reputation for grand construction projects, it has not had a landmark venue for performing arts -- until now. "Look at everything else Dubai already has... now we're going make it even better," said Dubai Opera's CEO Jasper Hope, former chief operating officer at London's Royal Albert Hall. More»

A fourth book detailing the trials and tribulations of Bridget Jones is to be published in October. Bridget Jones's Baby: The Diaries by Helen Fielding will come out a month after a new film, titled Bridget Jones's Baby, hits cinemas. Both follow the character's "somewhat bumpy journey into motherhood" after she gets pregnant, and the "terribly awkward" question of who the father is. Bridget first appeared in a column in The Independent newspaper in 1995. A book version of the fictional diaries became a best-seller the following year, and was followed by two more full novels and two films. More»
