Indeed congratulations are due.

Can we now see the delivery of the schools, shopping precinct, tennis centre etc. that was promised as part of the Victory Heights masterplan?

The next set of townhouses I understand have replaced what was originally scheduled to be a school for the VH community.

Outside of the VH development, there is still a lot of work to be done, with temporary roads (now in their 4th year) and plenty of semi-built towers being left to the elements.

Sports City could be a great place to live, if..............

The service is targeted toward people who need cash from a depreciating asset quickly. Basically, takes advantage of over leveraged individuals or people who need cash quickly before leaving the country.

I suggest the police coordinate with the Ministry of Education to delay the start of all schools , suggest 10:00 a.m. start, this will enhance the roads capacity to all road users including that for schools.
It is worth investigating, the scheme will save time and cost for necessary improvement/widening schemes for existing roads network.

I think it is more to do with the general perception of what the dress is increasingly beginning to symbolize in the recent times, than the dress itself. Burkini wasn't evoking such strong sentiments sometime ago, people didn't have strong reactions as they have now, for obvious reasons. If the local population is becoming nervous and fearful, it is wiser to go easy on open and forceful statements of one's cultural / religious assertions and try to assimilate with the milieu. It is positive on the longer run. Contrasting outward expressions by outside faiths/cultures are not taken kindly in many Near Eastern and African countries and I believe it is not really hard to understand the discomfort of France.

The IMF is a part of the Rothschild Rockefeller Bilderberg group that control America, Israel, and the EU. The IMF is a tool to control countries that are not aware of the dangers that the Rothschild group brings to countries. Bahrain would have sacrificed some of their sovereignty to secure the IMF loan, Good luck to the Bahraini people, it would have been better to remove the IMF people from Bahrain.

@Skeptic. And I'm amused by your self-proclaimed psychoanalytical skills. Yes, I worked in Geneva and London, and in both locations I encountered very impressive professionals and quite mediocre ones. The problem with your argument is that you're determined to make your isolated experience sound as the norm. Maybe this comes from an inflated sense of self-importance, or simply from lack of objectivity.
What surprises me is that you're willing to accept the statistics mentioned in the article while refusing to accept that background checks had been carried out to reveal these same statistics. You can't just accept the numbers you like and dismiss the facts you don't like. For some reason, you continue to undermine your own arguments.

Are they nuts?! I have three daughters and I told them each that they needed to keep the costs under $3,000 and they did. The family did a lot of the flower work and we found inexpensive venues for the activities. I told them if they are still married after 20 years and I am still around, I would give them $10,000. Who wears the pants in your family?
