SPECIAL feature

Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau - Counting the cost of education by Mark Atkinson

Over 150 private schools are inspected every year in Dubai and each report published publicly on the Dubai School Inspection Bureau’s website. What are the inspectors looking for and what does it tell you about the quality of teaching and learning in your child’s school?

T

he Dubai School Inspection Bureau (DSIB) was established in 2007 by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority of Dubai, with the primary aims of assessing the quality of private education in Dubai and advising on improving school standards. Currently, private schools educate 88.7% of Dubai’s children, including 56.6% of Emirati students. These schools offer fifteen different education curricula, and fee structures vary enormously to cater for the different sectors of Dubai’s population.

26 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 26

The KHDA was set up to monitor and standardise education provision, making sure that it is compliant with Regulations and Compliance Commission, the Government legislator responsible for licensing schools in accordance with their guidelines. In order to assess the quality of learning and teaching, the DSIB carries out an annual audit of each school, collecting information from a variety of sources: in-depth school visits; parent and student surveys; staff interviews; classroom observations and appraising school policy making. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:16 PM


The final report gives a comprehensive assessment of school performance across a range of criteria and an overall rating - ‘outstanding’, ‘good’, ‘acceptable’ or ‘unsatisfactory’. This is not only an indicator of the quality of teaching and learning, but is also linked to the fee structure; ‘outstanding’ schools are allowed to raise their fees currently by 6% whereas ‘acceptable and unsatisfactory’ schools by 3%. There is therefore, a financial incentive for a school to perform well come inspection time.

The process

Each school inspection is guided by seven ‘Key Questions’. These are seen as of paramount importance when assessing a school’s performance. Each key question is assessed according to a framework of ‘Quality Indicators’, which are explained in the Inspection Handbook, available online for schools and parents to view. For example, to be assessed as ‘outstanding’ in student attainment and progress in key subjects, the majority of students would be expected to attain higher results and demonstrate in lessons that their knowledge, skills and understanding are higher than international standards. For a school to be judged as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ in its leadership and management, it is expected that accurate self-evaluation and planning for improvement is rigorously embedded in the school’s practice. Senior leaders will have a clear view of the school’s aims and communicate that vision effectively so that everyone in the school community is aware of and actively promoting the school’s goals. The management team is driving school improvement, sometimes directly, but usually through consultation and working with all stakeholders. At present, schools are told in advance of the inspection date and expected to organise a rigorous self-evaluation at least three weeks prior to the inspectors’ visit. Inspectors - recruited from across the region and internationally - then collect evidence to validate the self-evaluation and use this to assess school performance and make recommendations for future improvement. Once the school receives its detailed written report from DSIB, it is required to set out an action plan to show how it intends to make improvements, the www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Master Layout - November.indd 27

progress of which is subsequently checked during the next annual inspection. Given that the key questions and quality standards are readily available, is it necessary for the DSIB to give advance warning of their inspections? Should it not just be ‘business as usual’ and no need to make additional preparations? One parent of two children in a British Curriculum school argues that the inspections should be spot checks, as anyone can put on a show if they know when the inspectors are coming. “My kids always know when it is inspection time because their books get marked and they have more exciting lessons,” she says. On the other hand, school senior management teams might argue that there are certain practical arrangements to be made prior to an inspection. “It’s not going to be feasible if half the teachers are on in-service training or the inspectors arrive when all the students are sitting exams,” one Deputy Head of a Jumeirah secondary school observes. However, in the UK, Ofsted inspectors are only required to notify a school of the inspection date by noon the previous day, allowing far less time to ‘fabricate’ a false impression of the day-to-day school operations. What about parents choosing schools for their children? Are they aware of the DSIB and, if so, how much importance do they put on the inspection reports? One parent, looking for schools ahead of the family’s planned move to Dubai, explained that his choice took into account the inspection rating but it was not a driving factor in their decision. “Some schools simply did not have places available and we tended to put more emphasis on parent forums and blogs and see what people have to say,” he remarked. Another parent commented: “You get to know where the good schools are just by talking to people. Sure they also get a good rating, but there are some surprises as well. I would be more worried if a school suddenly dropped in rating. I’d wonder what is going wrong and ask questions.” Of the 153 private schools currently in operation in Dubai, twelve were rated as ‘outstanding’ in the latest inspection, 51 rated as ‘good’, 67 assessed as ‘acceptable’, 10 ‘unsatisfactory’ and 13 reports are not yet Connector NOVEMBER | 27 10/26/13 1:16 PM


SPECIAL feature available. Is there really that much difference between a ‘good’ school and an ‘outstanding’ one, or an ‘acceptable’ school and a ‘good’? Many head teachers when relaying the inspection results to parents take great pains to explain that the overall rating is just that, a generalised summary viewpoint, and that within their ‘good’ rating, there may be some ‘outstanding’ traits. Another argument against such a blanket, four-point rating is that not all schools can be compared directly and do not all have the same educational goals. However, the DSIB does state on its website that: “While there are legitimate disagreements about some aspects of the purpose of schooling, there is an almost universal consensus that an effective school will seek to secure the best possible academic or cognitive outcomes, while also enabling students to thrive in terms of personal development, interpersonal skills and the affective side of human development”. In the six years since the DSIB was established, have there been improvements in school effectiveness in Dubai? The DSIB believe so, stating that, “In the first round of inspections, self-evaluation and improvement planning were found to be unsatisfactory in around one third of schools. In 2010-11, inspectors noted a significant improvement and around one half of schools were judged as good or outstanding in this respect”.

Looking to the future

The DSIB have identified three main areas in which they are giving greater prominence in the quality indicators. Firstly, the DSIB intends to scrutinise the provision of education for children with special educational needs with the aim that all schools should provide a fully inclusive environment. Progress and achievement will be closely reviewed and the level of support offered assessed, as well as future plans for inclusion of all students of all abilities and educational needs. Secondly, the DSIB will continue to gather evidence and review the achievement of all students, but with a special focus on Emirati students. Over half of Emirati students are educated in private schools and the DSIB intends making sure that performance of these 28 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 28

students are evaluated proportionally, according to the percentage of Emiratis in each school. Thirdly, the framework of quality indicators will continue to place emphasis not only on academic achievement but also on “the effective promotion of students’ personal and social development”. This is in line with UAE 2021 Vision which aims for schools to provide the opportunities and support for students to be confident and socially responsible, whether through community service activities or a well-developed and effective programme of personal and social development. The DSIB has now completed its fifth cycle of school inspections. The Bureau itself admits that it is still a work in progress, with quality indicators continually under review and the inspection process evolving over time. But while the inspection results are directly linked to school fee increases and schools given plenty of notification of the inspection date, some will question how valid the inspections are in counting the cost of education. For more information about your child’s school inspection, visit http://www.khda.gov.ae/pages/ en/schoolinspection.aspx.

Key Inspection Questions: • How good are the students’ attainment and progress in key subjects? • How good is the students’ personal and social development? • How good are the teaching, learning and assessment? • How well does the curriculum meet the educational needs of all students? • How well does the school protect and support its students? • How good are the leadership and management of the school? • How well does the school perform overall?

Bourn Hall has launched a new fertility awareness campaign aimed to help people understand more about their own fertility and the different tests and treatments available when facing infertility. Bourn Hall Clinic Dubai will host a series of free, monthly fertility seminars at their clinic where the doctors and embryologists will explain different procedures and discuss how the process works in the laboratory for those considering IVF treatments. There will also be the opportunity to tour the state of the art facility, which is a unique opportunity for couples to see behind the scenes what happens at a fertility and IVF clinic. The clinic wants to educate couples in the UAE on their journey towards parenthood both pre and post conception and this is not just limited to IVF. The fertility seminars will enable people to understand more about their own fertility, why getting pregnant can sometimes be difficult and the tests and treatments available, should they need them. According to the World Health Organization, a couple is considered infertile if they have been trying to conceive for two years. Rates of infertility are on the rise and while one in seven couples face infertility in Europe it is around one in six in the MENA region. Contributing factors include diet, lifestyle, genetic factors, a high incidence of polycystic ovary syndrome and the effects of heat. November’s seminars will take place on Wednesday 6th at 7pm and Saturday 30th at 1pm. The clinic is located in Jumeirah in Al Hudaiba Awards Buildings.

d Teste & d Fiesta at Café Habana, Trie

The ACT Dubai The ACT Dubai is the world’s highest theatre club. The ACT concept allows you to dine whilst being entertained by unique performances from around the world. Select from an extensive Peruvian food menu and indulge in specialty cocktails using Pisco, the traditional spirit distilled from Peruvian grapes. After dinner, the venue transforms into an incredible nightclub, and a combination of stage acts and resident DJ keep this one-of-a-kind party going into the early hours.

What we ate

Souk Al Bahar

Keeping with Dubai’s tradition of brunch-time festivities, Café Habana has launched Fiesta, a Cuban-Mexican themed meal of celebration, bringing together great food and ambience with great company.

What we ate

For starters we had a combination of ceviche de salmon (salmon, coconut, peruvian mango and aji limo chilli), de lomo saltado (seared chifa beef, smoked onion, beef tartare, tomato confit and crispy potato), and enrollado de atun (yellow fin yuna and avocado with chi jau kay sauce). For mains we enjoyed arroz con pato (roasted chiclayano duck, peruvian asparagus and coriander rice with nectarine and maracuya sauce), and arroz meloso con saltado de camarones (sautéed prawns with peruvian wet rice). All the dishes were cooked to perfection and full of different spices from the Peruvian Sierra. For dessert we were one of the first people to try the new Granadilla cheesecake, made from native South America Granadilla fruit which has a sweet and sour flavour - absolutely amazing!

This is a brunch with a difference and instead of the usual food stations, the whole menu is served in unlimited sharing platters. We started with the Mexican style grilled corn, Café Habana chicken wings, quesadilla de pollo, vegetable quesadilla, mini cheese burgers and mini Portobello guacamole burgers. This was followed by Cuban sandwiches, sautéed chicken, Mexican style Hake fillets, grilled steaks, Ensalada de Espinaca y Manzana, grilled corn salad and omelettes. The day was topped off by velvety sponge cake with vanilla cream; bread pudding and homemade Tequila Lime Mousse. Add to this three beverage options and Café Habana gives Dubai a brunch in true Havana style.

Verdict

Verdict

Everything from portion size, presentation and taste were faultless, and the vintage theatrical setting truly enhanced the dining experience. This was our first time eating Peruvian food and we were highly impressed, and is something we’ll be trying again in the very near future.

Cost

Starters are priced from Dhs 50 and the mains from Dhs 90. The Act Dubai is open every Sunday and Thursday, 9pm to 3am and is located on the 42nd floor of Shangri-La Hotel. Call 052-8119900. -P.C. 40 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 40

The food was excellent and presented in a truly authentic Habana style. With the combination of a traditional Cuban-Mexican setting, excellent food and drink, and the live band ‘Ritmo de Habana’ filling your day with Cuban tunes, the festival atmosphere at ‘Fiesta’ is something not to be missed.

Mixed grill Picnics and outings become very popular especially when the weather is nice. A mixed grill is a meal popular in picnics consisting of an assortment of grilled meats. The assortment varies from one region to another. One type of mixed grill corresponding to the Middle Eastern cuisine consists of different pieces of meat and vegetables which are

placed on a skewer. Another type of mixed grill of South Asian origin is the chicken tikka and mutton tikka. It is advisable to avoid having organ and fatty meat as part of your mixed grill, instead try to incorporate ground nuts, some vegetable oil and lots of vegetables to render it healthy and a great source of protein, fibre and good fats.

Herb Infused Slow Roasted Turkey Breast by Chef Andrew Paderes from The Gramercy DIFC Ingredients: Whole Turkey 4-4.5kg

BRINE SOLUTION

water 2 gal white onion 3 medium size leeks 2 stalks (white part only) celery 2 stalks carrot 2 medium size parsley 1 small bunch bay leaves 3 pieces dried thyme 1 tbsp dried rosemary 1 tbsp dried sage 1 tbsp salt ½ cup sugar ½ cup peppercorn ¼ cup Procedure: 1. Roughly cut all the vegetables. Simmer with 1 gallon of water. 2. Add the herbs, sugar, salt and pepper corn and stir to dissolve. 3. Simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool it down. 4. Add the remaining water. 5. Place the turkey in a container and pour in the brine. 6. Seal and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. 7. Wash the turkey thoroughly before cooking.

HERB BUTTER

softened butter 150g sage few leaves rosemary few sprigs thyme few sprigs smoked paprika 1½ tsp minced garlic 5 cloves salt and pepper to season Procedure: 1. Soften the butter. 2. Finely chop the fresh herbs, the garlic and mix altogether.

44 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 44

3. Mix in paprika and season with salt and pepper. 4. Place in a piping bag or zip lock. 5. Carefully pipe the butter under the skin of the breast part. 6. Massage with your fingertips to spread evenly, making sure not to pierce the skin. 7. Refrigerate.

Cooking

1. Preheat the oven to 425 F/220 C degrees. 2. Remove the turkey from the fridge to bring it to room temperature before cooking. 3. Roughly chop some onion, garlic, celery and herbs and put in a roasting pan. 4. Set the turkey on top of the chopped aromatics, add water to produce some steam. 5. Pre-cook for 30 minutes. 6. Adjust the oven temperature to 325 F/160 C degrees and roast for 1½ - 2 hours. (You can cover the bird with foil if you wish, so it won’t brown easily.) 7. Adjust the temperature to 425 F/ 220 C degrees on the last 30 minutes. This should be your final stage where you brown your turkey. 8. Check the temperature of the turkey using a meat thermometer. Temperature should read 80 C/170 F degrees. For manual checking pierce the thickest part of the leg/thigh. The juice should be all clear when it drips. If there is still a hint of blood, return the turkey for further cooking. 9. Rest the turkey for at least 25 minutes before carving. This will make the meat really tender and juicy. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:17 PM

Eco Living: Conserving water It is one part oxygen, two parts hydrogen and vital for all known forms of life. It is water and it covers 71% of our planet’s surface. This figure may lead you to believe that water must therefore be an abundant resource - but let us look at those figures in more detail.

U

nfortunately, only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is fresh water and 98.8% of that water is locked in ice and groundwater. Only a small percentage of our freshwater therefore is where you actually expect it to be - in our lakes, rivers, ponds and puddles. Some observers have estimated that by 2025 more than half of the world population will be facing ‘water-based vulnerability’ and that by 2030, in some developing regions of the world, water demand will exceed supply by 50%. Currently, approximately 70% of the fresh water used by humans goes to agriculture. This is because consumption of water-thirsty meat and vegetables is rising and there is increasing competition for water from industry and urbanisation. So, are we running out of water? The answer is no. There is just as much water on our planet today as there was when life on Earth first appeared. However, as our population increases so does our water consumption. Thankfully, there are things you can do to help conserve this precious resource. The top four strategies that have the greatest impact are as follows: 48 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 48

1. Install low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators to save water and energy in your home. 2. Install a low or ultra low-volume toilet. 3. Eat less meat - especially beef. A typical beef burger can take 630 gallons to produce. 4. Buy less stuff. Why? Because everything takes water to make. There is no substitute for water so we have a responsibility to use it wisely and conservatively. Here are other water saving strategies you can implement in your home, garden and daily routine: • Choose native plants and grasses for your garden that thrive in our particular climate with a minimum amount of watering. • Make it a priority to fix water leaks around your home and garden. • Run your dishwasher and washing machine only when full. • Recycle plastics, glass, metals and paper. Buy re-usable products rather than disposable ones because it takes water to make most things. • Do not leave any tap running needlessly. Water conservation is about setting in place strategies, activities and policies to manage our fresh water so that we can meet current and future human demand. Millions of people making even the smallest changes will certainly make a difference. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:17 PM

Your Home Care & Safety Questions ...answered. After recently hearing of a horrific house fire, I would like to make my home safer. How can I do this? Having a working smoke alarm dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire. Ensure you have at least one working smoke detector in your home, ideally situated on the ceiling outside the kitchen. Each home should also have at least one fire extinguisher. Fire appliances need to be kept in working order and kept clear of clothing, furniture, newspapers, etc. Additionally, always keep flammable liquids in suitable containers, in a safe place and away from any heat source. Keep matches, lighters and similar items out of children’s reach at all times. Many fires are caused by electrical items. Follow the tips below to ensure electrical fire safety. • Looking after electrical equipment is vital. Just because something works does not mean it is safe. Always follow appliance instructions carefully, and do not attempt amateur repairs or upgrades. Buy only appliances that have the label of a recognised testing laboratory. • Most electrical distribution fires result from problems with ‘fixed wiring’ such as faulty electrical outlets and old wiring. Problems with Please note that electrical work should be carried out only by a qualified electrician. Call an electrician if you have any of the following: • recurring problems with blowing fuses or tripping circuit breakers • a tingling feeling when you touch an electrical appliance • discoloured or warm wall outlets or switches • a burning smell or rubbery odor coming from an appliance • flickering lights • sparks from a wall outlet • cracked or broken wall outlets. 50 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 50

cords, plugs, receptacles and switches also cause many fires. Many avoidable electrical fires can be traced to misuse of electric cords, such as overloading circuits, poor maintenance, and running the cords under rugs or in high traffic areas. • Routinely check your electrical appliances and wiring. Replace all worn, old or damaged appliance cords immediately. Do not try to repair them. Appliances that generate heat, such as clocks, televisions and computer monitors, should be given several inches of clearance all around for good air circulation and cooling. Do not drape clothes, toys or other items over warm appliances. • Light fixtures and lamps/light bulbs are also leading causes of electrical fires. Use bulbs that have the correct wattage requirements for each fixture. Using a higher wattage bulb can cause the fixture to overheat. Always screw bulbs in tightly as a loose bulb can cause sparks or shorts, and be sure to unplug or turn off a fixture completely before changing light bulbs. • Extension cords are a temporary solution only and their use should be minimised whenever possible. Have a qualified electrician determine if additional circuits or wall outlets are needed. Use the proper weight and length of extension cord for the appropriate task, and be sure the cord is rated for indoor or outdoor use, whichever is required. • Major appliances should be plugged directly into a wall outlet. Never use an extension cord. • Unplug small appliances when not in use. • Use only surge protectors or power strips that have internal overload protection and have the label of a recognised testing laboratory.

Naturally purify the air in your home Aloe (Aloe Vera)

Houseplants can beautify a home and can also provide an enormous benefit to your indoor air quality. Compounds like formaldehyde and benzene can be generated from construction materials, fabrics, furnishings, paints, solvents, household cleaners and even air fresheners - thankfully certain plants can filter these toxins and leave you with a healthier home environment.

I

n the late 1980s, NASA studied houseplants as a way to purify the air in space station facilities. They found several plants that filter common volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Lucky for us, the plants can also help clean indoor air here on planet Earth, which is typically far more polluted than outdoor air.

Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)

Also known as mother-in-law’s tongue, the Snake Plant is native to tropical West Africa from Nigeria east to the Congo. It is widely used as an ornamental plant and tolerant of irregular watering and dim lightning. NASA scientists found that the Snake Plant has an amazing ability to absorb formaldehyde (which is common in cleaning products, toilet paper, tissues and personal care products), nitrogen oxides and a variety of other chemicals present in the air. Place one in your bathroom where it will thrive with low light and the steamy humid conditions while helping filter air pollutants.

52 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 52

This easy-to-grow, sun-loving succulent helps clear formaldehyde and benzene, which can be a by-product of chemically based cleaners, paints and more. If you have recently moved into a new property or have repainted, this plant will help filter various gas emissions from toxic materials. The Aloe plant is a smart choice because beyond its air-clearing abilities, the gel inside an aloe plant can help heal cuts and burns.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosum)

Even if your thumbs are blue instead of green, you will have a hard time killing this resilient houseplant. With its rich foliage and tiny white flowers, the Spider Plant battles benzene, formaldehyde, carbon monoxide and xylene, a solvent used in the leather, rubber and printing industries. For better effect, it should be kept in the kitchen where carbon monoxide accumulates.

English Ivy (Hedera Helix)

English Ivy or European Ivy is a species of flowering plant in the family Araliaceae. A native to most of Europe and western Asia, English Ivy is the perfect bathroom plant due to its ability to reduce airborne faecalmatter particles. It has also been shown to filter formaldehyde found in some household cleaning products. Unfortunately, its leaves can cause severe contact dermatitis in those susceptible. Having good indoor air quality is very important, especially since many of us in the UAE spend so much time inside, particularly so during the summer months. These plants therefore represent a good investment in your health and wellbeing. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 3:48 PM

BUSINESS & legal

Offshore gains

A

n offshore company is a company that is incorporated in an offshore jurisdiction to benefit from one or more advantages: • Legal and asset protection • Business succession planning • Multiple or joint investments • Easy and uncomplicated set-up • Less reporting • Thinner capitalisation • Lower costs of operation • Tax benefits • Privacy and anonymity

Business owners and partners

Under Sharia law, company shares do not pass automatically by survivorship and have to be probated in the case of a shareholder’s death. This often results in lengthy processes that affect the performance and profitability of the company. It also gets compounded when the company has more than one key shareholder, or upon the death of a husband and wife who are joint shareholders.

Families and homeowners

Special purpose offshore vehicles can be planned and created that are structured to meet specific requirements, so that assets are distributed as per the wishes of the owner/s. The sale or probate of properties can become complex and expensive but if these are collectively held by an offshore company, ownership can be transferred at any stage by company shares rather than the actual transfer of properties. Transferring the titles of assets to an offshore company means that the original owner no longer visibly controls 54 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 54

these assets, and they cannot be seized in cases of insolvency, taxation, marital proceedings or professional negligence.

Entrepreneurs

Offshore companies have the same rights as an individual person and can make investments, buy and sell real estate, trade portfolios of stocks and bonds, and conduct legal business activities across the world. By structuring an offshore company efficiently, you can ensure that shares of a company can pass without probate and the company goes through a seamless transition for future generations.

High net worth individuals

A high net worth individual with properties and assets in multiple locations may wish to hold all these using an offshore company, to avoid probate in each country. This not only symbolises great savings of time, processes and legal fees, but also avoids any kind of publicity.

Nutrition in children and teens 56 | AUGUST NOVEMBER Connector Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 56

www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 3:46 PM


Good nutrition is important for good health and can help protect against many diseases later in life. However, one important nutrient many children and teens do not get enough of is calcium, found mainly in milk and dairy products and in dark green, leafy vegetables and foods with added calcium.

C

alcium is a nutrient that helps to make bones and teeth strong and healthy. It is used in building bone mass and also helps to reduce the risk of bone fracture due to osteoporosis, a condition where bones become fragile and can break easily.

How do we build strong bones?

Our bodies continually remove and replace small amounts of calcium from our bones. If our body removes more calcium than it replaces, our bones will become weaker and have a greater chance of breaking. However, by getting the recommended amount of calcium, we can help our bones stay strong. Calcium needs are highest during the childhood and teens years, because bones are growing fast then and calcium must be added into bones to make them strong. Most of the calcium that makes bones strong is added be the age of 17 years. By eating and drinking foods that are good source of calcium, children and teens can help store this important nutrient in their bones for later in life. As adults, we lose calcium. The more calcium that is in the bones when losses begin, the less likely it is that our bones will become fragile and fracture easily.

How much calcium do children need?

Nutrition guidelines recommend that children aged four to eight years get 800 milligrams of calcium per day, or about two servings of dairy products daily. Teens and young adults aged nine to 18 years need more www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Master Layout - November.indd 57

calcium because their bones are growing more than at other times in life. They should have one 1,300 milligrams of calcium per day, or about three servings of dairy products daily. One eight-ounce glass of milk has about 300 milligrams of calcium. So just few glasses can go a long way towards getting the calcium needed each day.

Calcium content of foods

Food labels can tell us how calcium is in one serving of a food, they also list the percentage of the “Daily Value� next to the calcium amount. We should try to consume foods with 20% or more of the Daily Value (DV) for calcium. Foods with less than 5% DV for calcium only provide us with a small amount of what we need each day. For most adults, the requirement is one gram of calcium daily, but children aged nine to 18 years need extra calcium. They need an additional 300 milligrams of calcium each day, or an extra eight-ounce glass of milk, or extra servings of other calcium-rich foods.

How much calcium do children get?

Unfortunately, most children and teens do not meet calcium recommendations. National nutrition surveys in the US show that only 19% of teenage girls and 52% of teenage boys get the recommended amounts of calcium. In fact, teenage girls only average slightly over 700 milligrams of calcium per day, well below the amount needed for their normal growth and development. Connector NOVEMBER | 57 10/26/13 3:46 PM


KIDS' corner

Where do we find calcium?

Low-fat and fat-free milk and dairy products, such as cheese and yoghurt, are excellent sources of calcium. Milk and dairy products also provide other essential nutrients, all necessary for good bone health and development. These include phosphorus, magnesium, and added Vitamin D. Other sources of calcium include dark green, leafy vegetables, such as kale, and also broccoli, soybeans and tofu processed with calcium, orange juice with calcium added, and other calcium-fortified foods.

What is the best kind of milk?

Fat-free or skim and low-fat milk and dairy products are excellent choices because they make it easy to get enough calcium without adding a lot of extra saturated fat to the diet. For example, a glass of whole milk contributes ¼ of our total saturated fat for a day, while a glass of low-flat milk contributes only about 7% of total saturated fat. There are now a variety of milk products available with different contents of fat and different flavours, but an eight-ounce glass of any type still contains about 300 milligrams of calcium. Babies under one year old should drink only breast milk or iron-fortified formula. Children ages one to two should drink whole milk rather than reduced fat varieties because some fats are necessary for their early growth and development. Between ages two and five, parents should gradually transition children to low-fat or fatfree milk. Beginning at age two, children should get most of their calories from grain products, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products and beans, lean meat and poultry, fish and nuts.

Can everyone drink milk?

Lactose, the sugar found in milk and dairy products, can cause abdominal discomfort in some people, and someone with lactose intolerance has difficulties digesting lactose. This is not common among infants and young children, but can occur in older children, adolescents and adults. 58 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 58

National nutrition surveys in the US show that only 19% of teenage girls and 52% of teenage boys get the recommended amounts of calcium. For individuals with lactose intolerance milk is better digested when drunk in small amounts and when combined with other foods, such as cereal or fruits. In addition, many people can eat dairy foods such as cheeses or yoghurt, which cause fewer symptoms. Lactose-free milk products are now available in most stores and there are pills and drops that make it easier to digest milk and dairy products. Some of us, however, are allergic to milk and dairy products and should not eat or drink them. For individuals who cannot have any milk, calcium could be obtained from non-dairy sources, like vegetables. There are many other foods with added calcium and supplements can also be a way to add necessary calcium to our diet. Getting enough calcium is important for building strong bones and ensuring good health. Here are three things we can do to obtain enough calcium and keep bones and teeth strong: • Think of ways to incorporate milk and other calcium rich foods into our meals and snacks. For example, top a baked potato with broccoli and low-fat cheese, or dunk baby carrots into low-fat yoghurt dip. • We should also keep food with calcium in our homes and put them on the table during meals and snacks. • Keep drinking milk throughout our lives, and be sure to consume other foods with calcium. These foods must be an important part of our diet. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:17 PM

Cats and their claws by Jason Baker

If you’re a cat lover like I am, you’ve probably dealt with the problem of shredded furniture. Cats have to scratch as surely as birds have to fly, for reasons buried deep in their psyches.

H

owever, rather than take a hatchet to a hangnail and remove kitty’s claws (and ligaments, muscle, and bone) in a cruel procedure called “declawing,” there are simple, non-invasive solutions to worries about the furnishings. Declawing involves 10 separate, very painful amputations. After surgery, the nails may grow back inside the paw, causing pain but remaining invisible to you. Declawing results in a gradual weakening of leg, shoulder, and back muscles, and because of impaired balance caused by the procedure, declawed cats have to relearn to walk, much as a person would after losing his or her toes. The reasons not to declaw are too numerous to count on one paw. It can make cats who were once full of life lifeless, withdrawn, and upset, and you will not be able to turn back the clock. Cats naturally walk like ballerinas on their “points,” but declawing throws them off balance, forcing them to learn to walk in a very different way, which can cause irreparable and painful damage to the spine. Nearly two dozen countries - including England, Australia, and Japan - ban or severely restrict declawing surgeries. It is the little hook on the end of your cat’s nails that is responsible for pulling threads and tearing at things, so that hook has to be worn down or snipped off. Here is how to avoid tatters while keeping your cat happy: • Get as many scratching posts as you can (the horizontal ones work as well as the vertical), trying different surfaces and styles. Put catnip on them once in a while to make them super inviting. • Smear a little cologne on any fabric area where you do not want your cat to scratch. • If you have a steady hand and good eyesight, buy a pair of cat nail clippers and use them.

66 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 66

Gently squeeze each nail out, look for the quick (this is vital), and snip off the hook only, just above the quick. If you are unsure, go to a gentle veterinarian or groomer and insist on staying with your cat while his or her nails are clipped. • Spay or neuter your cat! It reduces the need for them to mark their territory. There you have it, friends. Happy purring!

Pet

What does it mean when my dog wags his tail? Dogs communicate with their entire bodies. When you get home from work, they wiggle and waggle top to bottom, eyes alight, ears perked up, voice greeting you with highpitched, short yaps. But even if you were to ignore these clues, you could ascertain all the information you need to know to make an accurate judgment about his mood from his tail alone. Consider these basic communications: The Excited Wag: This is the equivalent of the human shimmy. The tail whips back and forth; the body fizzes into a frenzy to indicate happiness and pleasure. The Wary Wag: If the dog is unsure, he will slowly move his tail back and forth at an angle parallel to the ground. His head might dip slightly. 68 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 68

& The Sentinel Wag: Beware the animal that stands at alert with his tail wagging high in the sky. This position is that of a guard dog ready to respond to action. The Alpha Wag: The dominant dog will let you know he thinks he’s the one in control by hoisting a stiff tail high up in the air and then swinging it back and forth at a quick pace. The Beta Wag: A submissive dog will drop his tail and quiet its movement. He might even hide it between his legs in a sign of surrender. Every dog has dozens of wags in his repertoire to communicate with you. The key, then, is slowing down to analyse them. You might get so good at reading ‘Dog’ that you won’t need to use your English at all. My dog often has very itchy skin, do you think a grain free diet will help? True food allergies are rare. However in these uncommon cases, animal based protein sources such as beef, dairy, chicken and egg are more common causes of allergies than grain. In the very rare event that a pet is allergic to a specific grain, there is no need to avoid others. For example in the uncommon situation of a wheat allergy, a pet should have no problems eating a diet that contains oats or rice.

Do you know your

skin?

Have you ever thought that if you knew more about the skin and was able to assess your own skin type, maybe you would feel more confident when buying skincare products. Let’s face it, skincare these days can cost a small fortune, and so it would be a complete waste of money to buy the incorrect products.

C

lear, soft and supple skin is one of your greatest beauty assets. Actual skin type is determined by your genes, but there’s plenty you can do on a day-to-day basis to ensure it always looks as good as possible. Understanding how your skin functions will help you decide which skin type you are.

What is skin?

Skin is your body’s largest organ. Every woman can have beautiful skin no matter what her age, race or colouring. The secret is to understand how your skin functions and be able to treat it correctly. Your skin is made up of two main layers, called the epidermis and the dermis. 82 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 82

The epidermis

This is the top layer of skin and the one you can actually see. It protects your body from invasion and infection and helps to seal in moisture. Built up of several layers of living cells, it is constantly growing, with new cells being produced at its base. They quickly die and are pushed up to the surface by the arrival of new ones. These dead cells eventually flake away, which means that every new layer of skin provides another chance to have a glowing complexion. The lower levels of living cells are fed by the blood supply from underneath, whereas the upper dead cells only need water to ensure they are kept really plump and smooth. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:18 PM


The epidermis is responsible for your colouring, as it holds the skin’s pigment. Its thickness varies from area to area; for example, it’s much thicker on the soles of your feet than on your eyelids.

So how do you determine you skin type?

The dermis

1. How does your skin feel if you cleanse it with a soapy facial wash and water? A. Tight, as though it’s too small for my face. B. Smooth and comfortable. C. Dry and itchy in places. D. Fine - quite comfortable. E. Dry in some areas and smooth in others.

The dermis is the layer that lies underneath the epidermis, and it is composed entirely of living cells. It consists of bundles of tough fibres that give your skin its elasticity, firmness and strength. There are also blood vessels that feed vital nutrients to these areas. Whereas the epidermis can usually repair itself as good as new, the dermis will be permanently damaged by injury. The dermis also contains the following specialised organs.

Sebaceous glands:

These tiny organs usually open into hair follicles on the surface of your skin. They produce an oily secretion, called sebum, which is your skin’s natural lubricant. The sebaceous glands are concentrated mostly on the scalp and face, particularly around the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead, which is why these are usually the most oily areas of your skin. The oily areas across the forehead and down the nose and chin are called the T-zone.

Sweat glands:

There are millions of sweat glands all over your body, and their main function is to regulate your body temperature. When sweat evaporates on the skin’s surface, the temperature of your skin drops.

Hairs:

Hairs grow from hair follicles. They can help keep your body warm by trapping air underneath them.

The main functions of your skin

• It acts as a thermostat, retaining heat or cooling you down with sweat. • It offers protection from potentially harmful things. • It acts as a waste disposal. Certain waste is expelled from your body 24 hours a day through your skin. • It provides you with a sense of touch. www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Master Layout - November.indd 83

2. How does your skin feel if you cleanse it with a cream cleanser? A. Relatively smooth and comfortable. B. Smooth and comfortable. C. Sometimes comfortable, sometimes itchy. D. Quite oily. E. Oily in some areas and smooth in others. 3. How does your skin usually look by midday? A. Flaky patches appearing. B. Fresh and clean. C. Flaky patches and some redness. D. Shiny. E. Shiny in the T-zone. 4. How often do you break out in spots? A. Hardly ever. B. Occasionally, perhaps before or during your period. C. Occasionally. D. Often. E. Often - in the T-zone. 5. How does your skin react when you use a facial toner? A. It stings. B. No problems. C. Stings and itches. D. Feels fresher. E. Feels fresher in some areas but stings in others.

Makes my skin feel very oily. E. Oily in the T-zone and comfortable on the cheeks. Now add up the number of As, Bs, Cs, Ds and Es. • Mostly As: Your skin is dry. • Mostly Bs: Your skin is normal. • Mostly Cs: Your skin is sensitive. • Mostly Ds: Your skin is oily. • Mostly Es: Your skin is combination.

Normal skin

A normal skin has a healthy balanced glow with little or no shine. It has no open pores and rarely develops spots or pimples. It is quite rare to find a completely normal skin, but it is mostly found on young women from the ages of 16 to about 30. From 30 onwards a normal skin does have a tendency to become dry.

Oily skin

This skin type usually has open pores and an oily surface, with a tendency towards pimples, blackheads and a sallow appearance. This is due to the over-production of sebum. Unfortunately, this skin type is the one most prone to acne. The good news is that this oiliness will make the skin stay younger-looking for longer, so there are some benefits.

Dry skin

If the skin tends to feel one size too small, it’s probably because it has a dry complexion. It’s caused by too little sebum in the lower levels of the skin and too little moisture in the upper levels. It can feel tight after washing. At its worst, it can be flaky, with flakiness in the eyebrows, and have a tendency to promote premature ageing, with the emergence of fine lines and wrinkles. 84 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 84

Combination skin

Combination skin needs careful attention because it has a blend of oily and dry patches. The centre panel, or T-zone, across the forehead and down the nose and chin tends to be oily and needs to be treated like oily skin. However, the other areas are prone to dryness and flakiness due to a lack of moisture and need to be treated like dry skin. Having said this, some combination skins don’t follow the T-zone pattern and can have patches of dry and oily skin in other areas Press a tissue on the face an hour after washing it. Any greasy patches on the tissue signify oily areas.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin is usually quite fine in texture, with a tendency to be rosier than usual. Easily irritated by products and external factors, it’s also prone to redness and allergy and may have fine broken veins across the cheeks and nose. There are varying levels of sensitivity. So by now, you should at least have a little more understanding as to what skin is and what it does. Hopefully, when you go to buy your next range of skincare products, you will be able to confidently talk to the advisor about your skin and decide with her the best products to suit your needs. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:18 PM

5 ways to

pamper without breaking the bank There are plenty of ways to pamper yourself without breaking the bank, so try these indulgent, relaxing treatments in the comfort of your own home.

Make bathing a spa-like experience.

If you’re a working mum and are constantly watching over the kids, you do deserve some ‘me-time’. If you have a bath in the master bedroom, turn bath time into a spa-like experience by sprinkling rose petals in the water, use luxurious bath salts or light some scented candles. You won’t believe how refreshed you will feel after you have had a long, luxurious soak.

DIY facials

Your skin deserves a break from cosmetics so whip up a natural facial mask with ingredients from your kitchen. Using banana, vinegar, milk, oatmeal, mayonnaise, yoghurt, mustard, lemon, egg and other ingredients, there are skin-related issues that you can address very easily. Apply your chosen mask for ten to 15 minutes and relax before rinsing.

Chill out with friends.

Another way to save money is to have a pampering session at your house or at a friend’s house. You can do each other’s hair and nails, take turns giving each other relaxing massages, and have fun simply catching up 86 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 86

with each other while indulging in homemade spa treatments.

Bedroom bliss

Turn your bedroom into a relaxing haven by putting on some mood music, dimming the lights, using scented candles, having an aromatherapy session or simply putting down the blinds so that you can have a good, healing sleep.

Top to toe

Finally, use items you have at home to pamper your skin, feet, hair and nails. Similar to homemade facial masks, there are also things that you can find right at home to use as hair treatment. Even a simple basin of warm water with salt can be used to give your tired feet some much-needed care. Apply lotion or petroleum jelly to the soles of your feet, wear thick socks and leave them overnight and you will wake up with soft, dainty feet. There are plenty of ways to pamper yourself at home,so give yourself that much-needed break - you deserve it!

Together with a myriad & Tes of fantastic treatments they Tried also offer Icoone, a completely made-to-measure beauty treatment for the face and the body.

It is also non-invasive and produces a The Organic Paprika Facial boosts collagen and deep sense of wellbeing. circulation, reduces wrinkles, clears and reduces pores, and helps to detoxify and renew the skin. What’s involved?

This is an advanced body contouring treatment that gives a 70% improvement in cellulite after six sessions. You are advised to support the treatment with a healthy diet and regular exercise for best results. Unlike many body slimming treatments you don’t have to spend time applying messy gels - you simply slip into your body suit. The treatment starts with a 15-minute base session that focuses on lymphatic drainage. This is the cleaning mechanism of the body which collects waste from the blood and allows oxygenated blood to the tissues. This is followed by a 15-minute focus session which is tailored to the individual’s concerns - mine being my untoned arms and cellulite on my thighs.

What are the results?

Visual results are noticeable from the first few sessions, I could see a definite reduction in cellulite and my skin looked more toned. I also lost 1.5cm from each thigh, 0.5cm from each arm and 1kg in weight. And, though I probably shouldn’t admit this, due to a busy schedule I didn’t really visit the gym, so it was all thanks to Icoone!

How much?

A 45-minute session is priced at Dhs 350. The body suit, which is a one off purchase, is Dhs 150. Connector readers receive a special package price of Dhs 1,470 for six sessions (a 30% discount) with this review. Bookings must be made before 15th November.

What’s involved

This luxurious facial uses products from Eminence, the certified organic Hungarian brand known for its potent natural ingredients. Mairéad, my therapist, cleansed, exfoliated and toned my skin before an AHA active fruit pulp peel and paprika herbal treatment was applied to my face and neck. A mist was then sprayed on to neutralise my skin before a cooling stone mask was applied to cool. This was followed by a fruit mask with antioxidants to calm the complexion. During the process my skin felt pleasantly hot then cold due to the paprika, the cooling masks, and the hot and cold towels. After a relaxing scalp, face, hand and arm massage I was almost ready to face the world again. But not before I tried out a full body massage with Jyothi, Pastels’ skilled massage therapist. And what a massage! She was so good that I have already booked my next appointment with her.

What are the results?

Talk about spice up your complexion! I left the salon glowing and looking super fresh. My skin was soft, clear, firm and feeling fully hydrated. I highly recommend this treatment, and I also rate Jyothi’s massage as one of the best I have had.

How much?

This 75-minute Paprika facial is priced at Dhs 500, and with such fantastic results... worth every Dirham in my book. A full body massage is Dhs 220. Pastels Salon is located on Jumeirah Beach Road. Call 04-3883534 to make an appointment. -L.D. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:18 PM

work the same way? If you think you would have handled it differently then you will be able to present a good case for your point of view. Words are very powerful tools and can wound. Do not ever let the emotions take over and allow you to be irrational. If you do not feel ready to reply, always say that you will get back to the person and spend some time planning your argument so that you can present it in the most positive way. www.mydubaiconnection.com Connector Master Layout - November.indd 93

If there is a real problem or something is difficult to discuss, it is very tempting to try to sort it out hiding behind your computer or from behind your telephone. Plan your points and how to present them in a positive way and arrange a one-to-one meeting. Look people in the eye when talking to them, keep your emotions at bay, and talk facts. When you want a successful outcome, always visualise success and be upbeat and positive. Energy is a strong force and can diffuse the most difficult situations. Start getting to grips with work by being organised and achieving your personal goals. Decide what your goals are, why are you in this job and what do you want to achieve? Is it for promotion, to learn new skills, gain valuable experience, to earn a good salary or fulfillment? Break down bigger goals into steps. Never be afraid to ask for advice - it is not a sign of weakness but a sign of eagerness to learn. Give yourself time to look at your career and think about the time you put in. Are you claiming the salary you deserve? Never be too busy doing the job to claim your rightful salary - you are not there only to please, you are there to earn and as you value yourself so will everyone else. Always be prepared to try something new do not be afraid of failure, just regard it as a learning process. Connector NOVEMBER | 93 10/26/13 1:19 PM


HEALTHY living One key theme that emerges from research into self-made millionaires is that they are willing to do whatever it takes to attain their goals. Successful people look to the future present orientated people or those who live for the moment seldom attain difficult goals that require long term planning.

Planning

Set your targets for the day in order of which is most important. Do not get sidetracked by co-workers who want to chat.

Pat on the back

We all love to be appreciated but sometimes we will wait a long time to hear it from others. • Always take time to appreciate yourself. Look yourself in the mirror and give yourself a pat on the back and say well done! Do not look for validation from others - your selfworth comes from within. Being confident about your abilities gives others confidence in you. • Be positive - think you will succeed and guess what? You will! Many people in positions of authority are there because they have the authority and people skills. There are probably plenty of people working under them that are actually better at the job, but not as confident. Confidence inspires confidence in others. The only person that can give you confidence is yourself. • Get the job done quickly and visualise successful endings. Always imagine a project turning out successfully and take time to plan.

94 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 94

• Never put off until tomorrow what you need to do today. Procrastination is a symptom of not being able to make a decision and things just pile up and cause stress. Just do it! Get used to being logical and making decisions. The more decisions you make, the easier they become. • Organise your day. Try to make phone calls and leave messages in the first hour of the day, and plan meetings between 2pm and 4pm in the afternoon.

Office essentials

Whether you work at home or in an office, you do not want to waste time looking for things. Have everything you need in your office; telephone, computer, comfortable chair, good lighting, calculator, pens, pencils, diary, notebooks, stationary. Plants and flowers create a better working atmosphere and add oxygen to the air. Keep a notebook or a diary of meetings, phone conversations and jobs done. Edit and file papers every day. If you cannot figure out what to do with something - why keep it?

Five things to do before you finish work • Prioritise jobs for tomorrow. • Back up computer files. • Tidy and clear your desk - it makes for a better tomorrow. • Return calls. • Say thank you to people who have helped you.

Managing stress

Tensions at work can cause stress and prevent you from enjoying both work and home life. Some stress is inevitable but you need to be in control of stress otherwise it will control you. If you don’t take steps to control stress it can have physical symptoms that affect your wellbeing, your relationships and your happiness. It can leave you in a state of constant anxiety, feeling tired and unable to move forward. The good news is that you can control stress. You deserve to enjoy life and be happy. Life is too short to spend it in a state of stress.

Ten steps to control stress

1. Exercise is a great stress buster. Give the best part of your day to yourself and do 10 minutes of exercise every morning. Believe me, you will feel empowered to achieve anything. 2. Decide to enjoy your day. The only way to alleviate stress is to take a long, straight look at the cause and think logically and calmly about the steps needed to sort out the situation - life is too short to live with anxiety. Women are very good at listening to their intuition or inner voice - men should do this too. Only you know the truth and the way to move forward. 3. Look at your work environment. A dark and gloomy office with no sunlight or uncomfortable chairs can have an effect on your own outlook, as can temperature, so dress according to the temperature of your office. Invariably, men prefer a colder work environment than women do. Asking for a comfortable chair can be a good idea, as it will make you more productive. 4. Be calm and collected. No matter what is going on around you, you can be calm and collected. Before a difficult meeting, do not hope for the best. Prepare for the best by making a list of your important points and put yourself at ease with a few moments of slow, deep breathing. 5. If you have a difficult or negative boss, accept that it is they who are difficult not you. They have the problem, not you. Be 96 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 96

calm in your dealings but if something is bothering you, deal with it by being calm, polite and assertive. 6. Learn to leave the office at the office door. Tell yourself, “Well done, I’ve done my best for today” and go home to enjoy your home, family and friends. 7. If you think that you cannot find a way to enjoy your work or justify you spending time there, then accept the fact that it is time for a change and look for something new. 8. If you are feeling stressed out, cut down on coffee and put a bottle of nice clean water on your desk to drink. 9. Accept that life is challenging and that each day will have its trials, you will just deal with them as best you can, and you can only do your best. 10. Decide what you really want from work. If you are ambitious, set yourself goals and have high expectations of yourself, and keep raising the bar. Whatever your reason for working, you deserve to enjoy it.

Increase your metabolism What is metabolism and how does it work?

M

etabolism is the calorie burner. Your calories are being burned all day long, no matter what your regular and normal routines are. Whether you are walking, running, eating, sleeping, or just sitting at your desk, your metabolism is burning calories. Now how much they burn is another question. Some people have a higher metabolic rate than others do and it is important to remember that your metabolism automatically slows down with age. Doing the same activities that you did just five years ago, you are burning fewer calories. Therefore, as your age increases your activities need to increase as well. Here are some ways to help increase your metabolism. • Exercise is beneficial for several reasons. We each need to exercise every day to increase our heart rate, which benefits the cardiovascular system. It will also help to increase muscle content and reduce unwanted fat. Your metabolism speeds up when the muscle content exceeds fat content. Just a few simple exercises a day will help increase your metabolism. Walking is an excellent starting place - just 20 minutes a day is a good way to start. However, if you are elderly or suffer from any medical conditions you should check with your doctor first before embarking on a new exercise routine.

98 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 98

• Eating more often, but reducing the portions and the caloric intake can also increase the metabolism. The small extra meals can go a long way in curbing the appetite because they trick your body into thinking there will not be a famine, so the metabolism speeds up to accommodate for this. On starvation diets, the metabolism actually slows down to make the necessary adjustments for the lack of food supply. Your body will think you are starving and will automatically slow down for survival purposes. When trying to increase your metabolic rate, read the labels of what you eat to assess fat content and stay await from fatty foods. Fresh fruits and vegetables are your best diet source. You should also drink plenty of water. The suggested amount is still eight glasses per day. • Most health and weight research shows that the majority of overweight individuals are not overweight because they have a slow metabolism, but because they eat too many calories and take insufficient exercise. Research also shows that most of us underestimate the amount of food we eat and overestimate the amount of exercise we do. However, some indicators may suggest you suffer from a slow metabolism such as fatigue, low blood pressure, feeling cold, constipation, a slow pulse and dry skin. These can also be the signs of other medical problems so please check with your doctor if you have any of these symptoms. In conclusion, there are many weight-loss programmes that promote diet supplements to increase your metabolism, but unless this is your personal choice, it is better to increase your metabolism by taking the healthy and safe route. www.mydubaiconnection.com 10/26/13 1:19 PM

All about allergies Did you know that one in five people have allergies? Do you experience itching in your eyes, nose or throat? Wheezing, cramps in your stomach, diarrhoea or bloating? If so, you could have allergies.

A

llergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system to a particular substance or allergen. They can be manifested as food allergies, respiratory allergies and drug allergies. Conditions such as urticaria (hives), eczema and contact dermatitis are also immune mediated diseases. The immune system is made up of special cells that circulate throughout the body to defend it against foreign substances, such as viruses and bacteria. For people with allergies, the immune system is overzealous and reacts when they inhale, swallow or touch normally harmless substances, such as pollen or dust. This results in the release of chemicals such as histamine, which causes swelling, inflammation, and itching of tissues which is characteristic of allergies. Making a diagnosis of allergies includes performing a complete evaluation that includes medical history, symptoms, and physical examination. Diagnostic testing may include skin prick testing and patch testing. A blood test may also be done to help identify the substances that are causing certain allergies. A food or drug challenge test may be done to diagnose food or drug allergy. Allergies are not only treated by medication (that offer symptomatic relief ) but by immunotherapy (subcutaneous injections given monthly or drops placed under the tongue several times a week) which teaches the immune system to become tolerant to the offending

100 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 100

allergens. This way a reduction of symptoms is achieved, less medication is required and diseases such as asthma are prevented. Food intolerance is more common than food allergies and it is estimated that about 45% of the population suffer from some form of food intolerance. The causes of food intolerance are not fully understood. Under normal circumstances antibodies combined with proteins in the food form immune complexes which are then eliminated. Patients with food intolerance have an accumulation of immune complexes in joints and the digestive tract. Symptoms of intolerance are rashes, swellings of the skin, asthma, stuffy or runny nose, frequent colds and infections. If the gastrointestinal system is affected, irritable bowel symptoms are present such as colic, bloating, diarrhoea, vomiting, frequent mouth ulcers, and reflux. Patients may have migraine, headaches, anxiety, depression, lethargy, impairment of memory and concentration. Symptoms may appear up to three days after eating the offending food. A simple blood test can identify foods that may be the culprit of the various symptoms. Treatment is accomplished by elimination of food that show an elevated level of antibodies for a certain period. This can decrease the symptoms and the food can be then reintroduced.

Don’t let winter sports strain the joints

A

ccording to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 440,000 people were treated at hospitals, doctor’s offices, and emergency rooms for winter sports-related injuries in 2010 alone. This includes 144,000 injuries from snow skiing, 148,000 injuries from snow boarding, 58,500 injuries from ice skating, 91,000 injuries from sledding and tobogganing. Whether you are an advanced skier or a young beginner, skiing in all its forms puts a lot of stress on some very vulnerable joints in the body. This is when you need a team behind you with the extensive experience and expertise needed to tackle problems with all the major joints, such as shoulder, hip, ankle, knee, as well as trauma and other winter sports related injuries. Common winter sports injuries include sprains, strains, dislocations, and fractures. Many of these injuries happen at the end of the day, when people overexert themselves to finish that one last run. A majority of these injuries can easily be prevented by preparing - keeping in good physical condition, staying alert, and stopping when they are tired or in pain. However, we are seeing a lot of young expatriates with sports injuries of all the major joints, even those typically associated with skiing. Of course, the best approach is prevention and the best preparation will help ensure a trouble free holiday on the slopes. Here are some things you can do to help prevent injury during those favourite winter sports activities, with thanks to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons: • Never participate alone. • Keep in shape and condition muscles before participating. • Warm up thoroughly - cold muscles, tendons, and ligaments are vulnerable to injury.

102 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 102

Whatever your sport, sports injuries are increasingly common amongst a young and active population in Dubai and the UAE. Perhaps surprisingly, this also includes winter sports injuries, as more enthusiasts head to the slopes each winter, looking for the perfect snow on which to perfect their techniques. • Wear appropriate protective gear and check that equipment works properly. • Wear several layers of light, loose and waterand wind-resistant clothing and proper footwear that provides warmth and dryness, as well as ample ankle support. • Know and abide by all rules of the sport. • Take a lesson (or several) from a qualified instructor, especially in sports like skiing and snow boarding. Learning how to fall correctly and safely can reduce the risk of injury. • Pay attention to warnings about upcoming storms and severe drops in temperature to ensure safety. When it does go wrong, new and advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques such as arthroscopy to visualise, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint, can help put patients back on the slopes next season. With thanks to Dr Harold Vanderschmidt, Specialist Orthopedic at one of the leading private hospitals in the region, providing American standards of healthcare.

Your Horoscope

SCORPIO 23 Oct - 21 Nov

by Capella

TAURUS 20 Apr - 20 May

The new Moon in Scorpio on the 3rd should inspire an early start in the month for a fresh approach to any problems, but dream on and create an agenda until 12th, when you should be in a position to activate those dreams. If you have overseas interests wait patiently for news until the 27th when you should receive some very welcome and exciting information.

It’s all about partners this month, whilst the Sun, Saturn, Mercury and the Moon’s North Node sit in that area of your chart. The New Moon on the 3rd could bring a sense of déjà vu with partners experiencing a karmic incident. Find time to visit and socialize with their elderly relatives, who could tell you a tale or two.

SAGITTARIUS 22 Nov - 21 Dec

If business and personal relationships have been in the doldrums recently expect them to pick up and take on a rosier glow after the 22nd. To avoid work clashing with home life make sure that someone is as reliable as they would have you believe. Make a date for the end of November when you have support of romantic Mars and Venus.

The Sun always moves into Sagittarius after the 22nd which must always give you a sense of lightening your life. But this month you may feel the need to seek seclusion and perhaps involve yourself in parental ties of some sort. The energy and enthusiasm of youngsters hold the key to any conundrum you might be experiencing.

CAPRICORN 22 Dec - 19 Jan

Passion prevails, whist Mars and Pluto make a brilliant aspect to one another in the first week. The 12th should be good for financial, overseas resolutions, but if you need a partner’s approval to change an agenda do so before the 27th. Sexy Mars and harmonious Venus get together in the last few days, so partners should be on the same blissful wavelength.

GEMINI 21 May - 20 Jun

CANCER 21 Jun - 22 Jul

Numerous planets in your creative house, i.e. children, keep you on your toes and whilst those planets aspect Jupiter, the planet of finance, you can expect some bills to come your way. Avoid gossiping, and intense people on the 15th and 27th. Venus, the planet of love, in your partner’s house after the 5th should lift your love life to a higher plane.

LEO 23 Jul - 22 Aug

AQUARIUS 20 Jan - 17 Feb

Aquarians may seem open and sometimes even slightly eccentric, but when Venus moves into your 12th house of isolation, you should find time to retreat from your busy world for a bit of peace and quiet. Welcome the time to clear any clutter in your life, leaving you ready to enjoy the company of lively relatives at the end of November.

Double check your budget so that you are not leaking money unnecessarily, because Mars and Neptune clashing in the financial area of your chart do not bode well for such matters. They make aspects to numerous planets in the domestic area of your chart. An offer of employment which would appeal to you may come your way around the 15th.

PISCES 18 Feb - 19 Mar

VIRGO 23 Aug - 22 Sep

If you are being seriously thoughtful about life in general and seem indecisive whilst trying to visualise where you are likely to be in the future, take support from discussions with friends who have your best interests at heart. Your changeable moods may come to an end when a challenging work ethic creates the possibility of productive rewards.

Enjoy some dreamy, passionate days in the first week of this month when fiery Mars and obsessive Pluto make a brilliant aspect to one another. Your solar ruler Mercury moves forward after the 11th and more glamorous and halcyon days should follow right up until the end of November. It seems as if a special relationship awaits you.

ARIES 20 Mar - 19 Apr

After applying your knowledge to a difficult matter, people will understand you are in control and your confidence should get a much needed boost. Any nervous, edgy attitude between partners should disappear and communications should run smoothly, whilst you have an intuitive understanding of each others’ needs - electronic impulses flash.

There are changes ahead, that is, if you have not already made them. An enlightening experience may alter your attitude to people if you are contemplating taking the path of a different philosophy in life. Your final reasoning could enable an enormous amount of power to be released for your growth and future development. 104 | NOVEMBER Connector Connector Master Layout - November.indd 104
