A leading jeweller is demanding that hundreds of its male employees in the UAE shave off their facial hair. Fearing job losses, about 100 employees working at Alukkas Jewellery - mainly from Kerala, in south India - have already abandoned their moustaches.
Hundreds more are debating whether to comply with the company - part of the Joy Alukkas group which employs around 2,500 workers across the GCC. When contacted, Joy Alukkas, Group MD would not comment on the issue, though he is understood to have shaved off his moustache to set an example.
But senior management sources said the move to ask employees to shave was on a trial basis before the group extended it to other divisions of the company. No clear reason for the decision was forthcoming.
“All 400 employees of Alukkas Jewellery are asked to remove their beard as early as possible. Apparently it is part of the top management decision but we don’t know the rationale of such a utopian idea,” said one employee who added that he values his moustache as a symbol of personal taste and dignity.
Staff say they were told of the new policy by fax. “It is my privilege to grow a beard or moustache. Forcing me to remove that for the sake of the company’s policy is unacceptable,” said another who insisted that he would not accept the decision at any cost.
“Even the general managers and marketing chiefs are not spared from the decision,” added an employee. Alukkas Jewellery has around 38 outlets spread across the Gulf - including in Dubai’s Gold Souk in Deira - in the Middle East and Kerala in India. The Group says it is the world's leading “22 karat jewellery retailer”.
I've read some reviews about the book, I fully agree that the first half of the book is kind of slow, as if the author was draging/ forcing her self to write, slow motions I believe.
At the moment that event started to pick up, and I'm enjoying it.
Allot of questions arrasied in my mind,
What happened to Albus Dumbledore's hand?
Is Draco Malfoy a Death Eater?
Will Dumbledore find out that Severus Snape is a double agent?
To douse who haven’t read 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince', don't search for any information at Wikipedia, it has all the information from the first book until the last of everything, even the character's information up to date.

Apply freely over burns. It cools, removes pain and aids fast healing without scarring. Apart from being a salve and antibiotic, bacteria cannot live in honey.
A teaspoon of honey before bed, aids water retention and calms fears in children.
A dessert spoon of honey in a mug of hot milk aids sleep and works wonders!
Honey is a mild sedative with minerals, vitamins, amino acids etc. Replace all white sugar with honey. White sugar is highly stimulating with no food qualities!
Place a dessertspoon of honey in a basin of hot water and inhale fumes after covering your head with a towel over the basin. Very effective.
Wounds or Grazes
Cover wound with honey and a bandage. Excellent healer.
Dissolve a dessertspoon of honey in warm water or quarter honey balance of water in a jug and keep in the fridge. Honey is primarily fructose and glucose and so it is quickly absorbed by the digestive system. (Honey is a unique natural stabilizer - ancient Greek athletes took honey for stamina before competing and as a reviver after competition.)
Facial Deep Cleanser
Mix honey with oatmeal approx. 50/50 till thick and apply as a face-pack. Leave on for half an hour then wash off. Great as a deep cleanser for acne etc.
Mix honey with apple cider vinegar approx. 50/50 and dilute to taste with water - aids digestion. (Also reputed to be wonderful for the joints.
Mix honey with equal quantity of Olive Oil and cover head with a warm towel for half and hour then shampoo off. Feeds hair and scalp. Hair will never look or feel better!
Let a teaspoon of honey melt in the back of the mouth and trickle down the throat. Eases inflamed raw tissues.
Honey in water is a stabilizer - calms highs and raises lows. Use approx. 25 percent honey to water.
Honey is the best blood enricher by raising corpuscle content. The darker the honey the more minerals it contains.
Cakes with honey replacing sugar stay fresher longer due to natural antibiotics. Reduce liquids by approx. one-fifth to allow for moisture in honey.
These people are well advised to replace white sugar (sucrose) with honey, natural fructose and glucose.
Chewing the tops of comb honey stimulates the immune system due to minute amounts of pollen. During the season chew for 20 minutes a teaspoon of bee cappings (tops) five to six times per day. Highly effective and useful for asthma suffers as well.
Four teaspoons of honey to a baby's bottle of water is an excellent pacifier and multivitamin additive. If baby's motions are too liquid then reduce by half a teaspoon; if too solid increase by half a teaspoon.
Honey rubbed on a baby's gums is a mild sedative and anaesthetic.
English research has shown that a teaspoon of honey per day aids calcium utilisation and prevents osteoporosis. Essential from age 50 onwards.
One common fact worldwide is that the most long-lived people are regular users of honey. An interesting fact yet to be explained is that beekeepers suffer less from cancer and arthritis than any other occupational group worldwide.
Use a dessertspoon of honey dissolved in half a glass of warm water. Sip at start of attack. If necessary repeat in 20 minutes. Always effective (so tip goes) as migraine is stress related.
Conjunctivitis (pus in the eye)
Honey dissolved in equal quantity of warm water. Apply when cooled as lotion or eye bath.
6 ozs liquid honey
2 ozs glycerine
Juice of 2 lemons
Mix well. Bottle and cork firmly. Use as required
Keep honey in first aid cupboard for emergency burns etc and another in the kitchen cupboard.
Those interested in a more scientific explanation can refer to Kaye M. Russell's 1983 MSc thesis, Waikato University, "Antibiotic qualities of NZ honeys" - a NZ explanation of knowledge long-buried and available through the public library on request.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: 9 August 2005 9pm GMT
Dear all, please read this important message about why the site is not working...
Over the past couple of years blogLinker has become very popular, thanks to all of you except the porn spammers and their kind. So popular in fact, that the site started causing data traffic server problems. The hosting company offered to upgrade the server. I accepted their offer, but they basically *completely* fudged the move to the new server.
I won't bore you with the details, but the low-down is this: I have decided to part ways with the current hosting provider and I am currently half way through moving hosting companies. This will hopefully not take more than a couple of days but it explains why the database is down and the service is crappy.
The bad news is that the hosting company deleted the database without informing me or backing up. Clever, I know. Luckily I had taken a backup, although this is 9 days old, but this will have to do for now. I also have the emails of all - even the most recent - members. So those that joined within the last 9 days, will be contacted and asked to re-join..
The good news is that I will be working out a self-policing system to finally get rid of these porn spammers once and for all. Basically, if more than say 20 people hide links to a member, I will automatically suspend that member, simple as that. So members will be forced to think twice before linking to other unrelated members.
I can make the threshold more or less; just let me know your thoughts. Also, if you want a forum/messageboard, I can sort that out as well. Basically, just let me know what you want and I'll try and make it happen.
In the meantime, what can I say - thanks for your patience.

I don't cretisise their motives, but it comes with experiance of how they have been treated. At end of the day, they are humans like rest.
By Sunita Menon and Daniel Bardsley, Staff Reporters
Dubai: We have all seen job adverts for employers who are after staff of one nationality or another.
Maybe the company is looking for an Indian driver, a Filipino office manager, an Arab public relations executive or a European construction manager.
However, the tables are now being turned and instead it is employees who are starting to specify the nationality of their employer.
Daniel Bardsley/Gulf News
Many job-seekers stick or place advertisements at public places, shopping centres, supermarkets or on walls although it is against municipality rules.
Many housemaids are now expressing a preference for one nationality or another in personal adverts that are on display in some of Dubai's shops.
For example, there is the "experienced maid" who is seeking "immediate employment with accommodation from a European family".
Another Sri Lankan maid who claims 12 years' experience in looking after children is looking for "full-time employment with an American or British family with sponsorship".
When asked why she was advertising for an American or a European family, Francesca, a 37-year-old Filipina, said it was "just the Filipino way".
"Some of the families from other countries pay you less salary but make you work harder," she said.
Francesca, who is currently in the UAE on a visit visa, said she would also happily work for a Chinese family, having spent 16 years employed by one in the past.
Radhika, 45, a Sri Lankan maid, said she preferred working with British, European and even Indian families because they treated maids well.
"I have experience working with these nationalities and it is quite good. I worked for three years for a British family in Dubai before they moved to Qatar.
"They treated me quite well. I was paid Dh1,400 a month. I used to get weekly days off and gifts for Christmas," she said.
Radhika said she ironed, cleaned and babysat for the British family and the working hours were not excessive.
She said a couple of Indian families had telephoned her and made enquiries about her work experience, family background and the salary she expects.
"I don't mind working for an Indian family. I have to get a job soon as my visit visa will expire in a few days," she said.
Lisa, 32, a Filipina maid who is in the UAE on a visit visa, said friends had advised her to try to find an employer from the United Kingdom or another European country.
A Dubai Municipality official said sticking or placing any adverts in a public place, shopping centre, supermarket or on walls is prohibited.
The Waste Service Section at the Environment Department of the Municipality had also issued a circular in January 2004 to shopping centres and supermarkets to remove any advertising material pasted in their premises. But the practice continues.

I'm in a mood to try out fresh sugurcane Juice.

Once I saw a little bird
Come hop, hop, hop
And I cried out "Hey, little bird
Will you stop, stop, stop?"
So off the little bird flew
So high, high, high
And he dropped a little present
In my eye, eye, eye.
At crazy hospital a doctor wanted to examine the crazies men to discover who will cure.So as to do this step ,he drew a door in a roof,then he asked them to open the door.Every on tried to open the door except one,the doctor thought that this crazy man who did not go to open the door he cured.In order to make sure,the doctor asked him:"why you did not go to open the door with your friends?"crazy man said:"because I have the key."
"How can I do now?" A young man who is going to get married complains to one of his friend, "I've changed my girl friend for many times, but no matter which one I took home, my mother just doesn't like her."
"Uh, that's easy." said his friend, "You just find someone like your mother, and that would be O.K.."
"Yes, I tried. But," said the young man, "it turned to be my father who doesn't like her then."
A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for
yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day.One day, when he came to,
he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears :
"You know what? You have been with me through all the bad times.
When I got fired, you were there to support me.
When my business failed, you were there ..When I got shot,
you were by my side. ..When we lost the house, you stayed right here.
When my health started failing, you were still by my side...
You know what?" "What dear?",
she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.
"I think you're bad luck."
After drinking a sip of coffee in a coffee shop, a man felt that the coffee is terrible. So he called a waiter and asked:
- What kind of coffee is it?
+ Blended, answered the waiter.
- What do you mean by blended?, the man asked.
+ Last week's and this week's.
So, stop waiting ...
Until your car or home is paid off
Until you get a new car or home
Until your kids leave the house
Until you go back to school
Until you finish school
Until you lose 10 lbs
Until you gain 10 lbs
Until you get married
Until you get a divorce
Until you have kids
Until you retire
Until you die.
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money, love like you've never been hurt,
and, dance like no one's watching.

Money never make you feel secure nor Rich.
3. If someone gave you 100 rials, no strings attached, what would you do with it?
Don't know, it depend on the time.
4. If someone gave you 1 Million rials, no strings attached, what would you do with it?
Pay debts, pay Zakah, Go to Haj, pay for my siblengs amd my education, build a house for my self and family; and invest the rest.
5. How much does something have to cost before it starts counting as "real" money, as a purchase to be considered and evaluated, but below which you'll buy without really thinking about it?
If it going to be wearth and usefull to me, it will have a value.
