Abeer Al-Fouti sees Alwaleed delivering global response to COVID-19 pandemic

Charity begins at home, they say, but in the era of the world pandemic such a domestic-focused approach is neither desirable nor effective. That is why several global philanthropic organisations, and big name donors, have come to the fore in the course of the COVID-19 crisis to offer financial, practical and logistics support to those people in the world whose governments do not have the means to extend assistance to their entire population. Perhaps the best known is Bill Gates, the American entrepreneur who has pledged to give away his entire multi-billion dollar fortune to beat the virus. Other eminent entrepreneurs have also given billions in the attempt to find an elusive vaccine or effective treatment. But Saudi Arabia has its own famous philanthropist in the shape of Pri...

Aston Martin Vantage Review

I know the 4.692km Portimão racetrack, in the Algarve region of Portugal, fairly well having tested numerous GT and racecars there over the years and I love it. It’s among the top three tracks alongside Spa- Francorchamps in Belgium and Mount Panorama, Bathurst in Australia. In my eyes, they are equally first with none better than the other. I thought that I also knew the weather reasonably well, being fine and sunny every time I’ve been there, so the prospect of spending a good eight hours on track with the all-new, twinturbocharged, v8 Aston Martin vantage had me salivating for weeks in anticipation. What I wasn’t prepared for was arriving at a damp and rainsoaked Algarve with thunderous black clouds overhead which had dumped buckets of rain over the region for 23 days straight. With the...

How Former Benue’s First Lady Yemisi Suswam Is Raising The Standard in the World of Architecture

For women in Africa, especially in Nigeria, setting up your own business comes with a unique set of challenges. However, as more take the plunge, the rewards are starting to be reaped. For the few who rise to nationwide or global prominence, the trail they blaze opens up a door for many to follow through in their paths. They become reference points to the small and the great, and their achievements change the narrative of folk tales that once told us “a woman can’t do that”. Women in Nigeria now have a favourable circumstance to set their dream projects in motion and fully own the sense of personal and professional satisfaction that comes with it. Life does give you more than a few opportunities, why waste any that come your way? Women are increasingly gaining influence in the corpo...
