The Next Cyprus?
NOW that the crisis in Cyprus has been temporarily resolved, the unspoken question is: Who's next? Perhaps Malta, which has an even bigger banking sector than Cyprus relative to GDP, much of it highly reliant on offshore depositors. Or maybe Latvia, fast becoming the destination of choice for Russian funds flowing out of Cyprus and now on course to join the eurozone. Even Spain or Italy could be vulnerable to a similar bailout, now that ...
The Empirical Kids
TWELVE years ago, I wrote a piece for The Atlantic, called "The Organisation Kid," about the smart, hard-working, pleasantbut- cautious achievatrons who thrive in elite universities. Occasionally, somebody asks me how students have changed since then. I haven't been perceptive enough to give a good answer. But, this year, I'm teaching at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale, and one terrifically observant senior, Victoria Buhler, wrote a paper trying to capture how it feels to be in at least a segment of her age cohort.

Katara Hospitality staff donate to QC

TRIBUNE NEWS NETWORK

DOHA EMPLOYEES of Katara Hospitality have made inkind donations to Qatar Charity’s Taif project.

The donations are part of a partnership between Katara Hospitality - which runs a number of hotels in and outside Qatar – and QC, aimed at supporting low-income people.

The donations included clothing, furniture, electronic and home appliances. They were received on behalf of QC by Abdullah Abdul Hadi al Dosari, director of in-kind donations for the ‘Taif’ project, in the presence of Hamad Mohammed Thiyabi, director of administration at Katara Hospitality, and Salem Ghanem Kubaisi, director of the purchasing department, as well as a number of employees.

A set of disused furniture from the Katara Movenpick Hotel Doha was included in the collection.

“We are proud to support QC’s ‘Taif’ voluntary programme and I would like to thank all the Katara Hospitality staff who have donated to this noble cause,” said Katara CEO Hamad Abdulla al Mulla.

“Katara Hospitality is eager to continue its support for the social development schemes and charitable initiatives of Qatar Charity which provide services to individuals and communities within Qatar and elsewhere,” Mulla added.

Dosari thanked Katara Hospitality for the donation, saying: “The partnership between Qatar Charity and Katara Hospitality comes within the framework of the social responsibility of national institutions; supporting the needy through social projects.” Dossari appealed to other Qatar companies and institutions, particularly those working in the hotel and tourism industry to support the Taif’ programme and help QC support the needy through the establishment of charitable projects, as well as by promoting the values of giving and solidarity.

Katara Hospitality’s hotels in Qatar and abroad have witnessed steady growth over the past few years and the company has a prestigious reputation as a worldwide pioneer in the hospitality industry, with hotels all over the world; from the Far East to Africa and across Europe.

Katara’s Hotels in Qatar include Sharq Village, managed by Ritz – Carlton, Six Senses Resort, Ritz - Carlton Doha, Sheraton Doha Resort and Convention Hotel, the Marriott Hotel Doha, Movenpick Hotel Doha, Somerset West Bay Doha and Sealine Beach Resort.

Katara adheres to a comprehensive and integrated approach to the practice of social responsibility, based on long-standing infrastructure, in order to address important issues related to the environment, society, the workplace and product development.

QC’s ‘Taif’ project is a unique initiative that aims to help the needy; particularly families on low incomes, in a manner that preserves their human dignity, through the promotion of the spirit of volunteerism in the community.

The project involves QC collecting disposable goods and distributing them to those in need.
