Which is your favorite local charity/non-profit organization? 3. What Ramadan dish do you most look forward to at Iftar? 4. What are you planning for Eid Al Fitr? 5.

COMMUNITY

Acting Charitably The holy month of Ramadan is all about charity and giving back; Go’s Annisa Rochadiat uncovers two organizations that are doing their all

Corporate donors can help Al Fawanees by becoming a “partner.” This means providing venues, discounts on toy gifts, media and logistics, or by making a donation of 20,000 JOD and above. Businesses can also become an Al Fawanees sponsor by pledging a lesser sponsorship.

n the Islamic tradition, alms giving and voluntarily spending one’s wealth in charity have always held a pinnacle place; they are integral to one’s faith. Sharing one’s blessings with others, particularly those less fortunate, is however, a gesture that is never more encouraged than during the holy month of Ramadan. There are many altruistic initiatives in Jordan, most of which operate with a particular Ramadan agenda. One of such is Al Fawanees, a social project set up specifically with the Kingdom’s underprivileged children in mind, including orphans, children with special needs and physical disabilities, and child refugees. Al Fawanees, literally meaning, “lanterns”— a common sight in the Middle East during Ramadan — is said to symbolize hope. Projected to become an umbrella organization for Ramadan charities, Al Fawanees seeks to share the Ramadan spirit and Eid joy by hosting 20 Iftar events spread out across Jordan’s 12 governorates, with each event catering to about 100 children. These Iftars rely on private and corporate sponsorship, with each child requiring a sponsorship fee of around 30 JOD. According to Project Director Marc Zenkner, at each Iftar, a child will have access to a special dinner, a range of games and activities, and — for the first time — they’ll also receive a personalized Ramadan gift made possible via interviews that the Al Fawanees conducted by volunteers. The team took pains in compiling a Ramadan gift wish list, now viewable on their Website. Apart from providing financial donations, if you’re looking to increase your rewards for good works and have at least an afternoon a week to dedicate your time to, you EDTOKNOW can also volunteer and participate E in Al Fawanees’ upcoming N This Ramadan events. year, the Al If you’re interested in Fawanees Project serving the community are aiming to fundraise 60,000 and helping those in need JOD to cover all not just during Ramadan, their expenses! but also throughout the year, then Family Kitchen is

another worthwhile cause. Founded in March 2009, this initiative aims to feed the poor and needy by distributing food — primarily surplus and untouched — from restaurants, hotels, and banquets in Amman. Apart from surplus food distribution, Family Kitchen also helps give out clothes, heaters in winter, and medical assistance to disadvantaged communities living in Jordan’s poverty pockets, including refugee camps. During last year’s Ramadan, Family Kitchen fed no less than 3,000 people throughout the month with just 20 volunteers and eight participating restaurants. Each night, volunteers would come

A child will have access to a special dinner, a range of games, and — for the first time — a Ramadan gift collect untouched leftover Iftar buffets from various hotels and restaurants and transported them to selected distribution points. Since earlier this year, the kitchen has helped distribute meals and food packages sponsored by the Crowne Plaza Amman, Tkiyet Um Ali, and the Jordanian Alliance Against Hunger in Manara and Karak. They’ve also aided in the delivery of baby supplies, clothes, and toys to underprivileged communities in Madaba. With charitable activities taking place almost every month, Family Kitchen tells us that volunteers are always welcome all year round, especially those who are able to provide logistical support like transportation. So get involved this month, but carry on the good deeds throughout the year, thanks to great organizations such as these!

Letter from The Go Team

Ramadan Kareem & Eid Mubarak!

Hey Go-Getters,

W

elcome to Go’s first Ramadan/Eid edition ever! This month we’re bringing you the best that the country has to offer for commemorating Ramadan, for giving back to our community, and for celebrating Eid Al Fitr. Ramadan is the time for coming together, recognizing your fortune, and acting charitably towards others. We at Go are incredibly fortunate and appreciative of all the support that we’ve received from our readers since we started just ten issues ago! And we'll continue to do our best at providing our fans with all that they need to know to “get going” within our amazing Kingdom. So this month if you’ve got any questions and think we can help, drop us an email, give us a call, or post a question up on our Facebook page! As for this issue, we’re covering spots around Amman to enjoy Iftar, places to visit to spend your Sahra, stores to check out to pick up great Ramadan décors and gifts, ideas for what to do for Eid Al Fitr, as well as the many ways that you can help the less fortunate. For those who still want to keep active, we’ve also included amazing things to try out, like an adventure in Wadi Hasa or a visit to Jordan’s Ajloun Forest Reserve. And for our readers who’d like to find new hobbies, we’ve found the incredible She Can Crafts Shop and the capital’s new indoor go-karting center, Raceways Karting. So, whether you’re planning to chill out this month or continue your activities as usual, enjoy Ramadan, and because we won’t see you again until September, have a great Eid. Kol a’am wa antom bi khair! 8 | AUG. 2011

Take the Cake!

Apparently popular US chain, The Cheesecake Factory, will be opening a branch in Amman soon. Known for its eclectic menu, large portions, delicious “madefrom-scratch” recipes, and signature desserts, if there’s any truth to this rumor, this city's sweettoothed residents and foodie fiends can rejoice. Oh, do you think they’ll deliver?!

Popular Jordanian comedy sketch show, Bath Bayakha (as seen on YouTube), will be on TV this Ramadan! Airing on Roya TV, each day will bring a new hilarious episode — fun for all. And for those of you who want to re-watch your fave clips, each skit will be put online as well. Check out the trailer for their upcoming episodes on YouTube now @ tiny.cc/zexam.

Overseas Visitors Summer usually means friends and family who live overseas come back to Jordan to visit. It’s a time of bonding, catching up, and making new memories. Plus with Ramadan times reducing everyone's office hours, there’s more free time to get together and enjoy each other’s good company. Traffic Jams Summer also means a massive influx of regional and international tourists, which means loads more people in the streets and traffic just about anywhere you want to go. It’s not easy to stay calm while stuck in horrendous traffic, especially with the blistering heat, but just try to remember that patience is a virtue. Al Fresco Evenings Beautiful sunsets and starry nights are a great part of this season, as summer in Jordan means enjoying the plethora of outdoor venues around the Kingdom. Whether you like your lounges, cafés, restaurants, or nightspots, choice is ample and views of the city are often spectacular. Electricity Issues It’s likely that air conditioning has become your new best friend while the bill collector is now your sworn enemy, as summer also means all-day AC use, racking up quite impressive electricity charges. This also means regular power outages as the grid scrambles to power the city’s homes, malls, and office. Not so fun in the stifling heat!

VERB. To forward or send a letter on to a further destination. Eg. “Did you receive that hilarious email from Ahmad?” “No. Farwed it to me!”

Greg Malouf

Go sat down with Greg Malouf, consulting chef of the city’s new restaurant, Turquoise, to discuss the love of Middle Eastern cuisine Go: What led you to be a chef? Greg Malouf: My appetite, I think, is probably the best way I could describe getting into this business. As a kid I had a huge appetite — it’s not that I was always hungry, I just loved eating. I grew up in Australia, born to Lebanese parents, so everything was centered around the table; we were always surrounded by beautiful Lebanese food. My love of family values and wonderful food eventually grew into a craft and then into a way of life.

Latest news

Go: So it was thanks to your parents' influence? GM: Yes. I had a wonderful childhood with a few generations living in the house. My grandma and aunts were always tinkering away, rolling pastries or stuffing meats, so my fascination for that grew. Then I went to cookery school and learned the basic techniques — especially French and Italian — and from there I decided to travel and get first hand knowledge of the world’s great cuisines. When I came back to Melbourne, I decided I wanted to put my heritage in a better light. I was taking Middle Eastern food out of its comfort zone of “falafel” and “hummus,” to put it on a pedestal,

The Comfyland experience coordinates muscles and balance, using senses of sight, sound, and touch. The Theater encourages a child’s growth in expression; public speaking overcomes shyness.

Edutainment for kids is trending worldwide, and Funtastic has become the regional example of how it’s done. After the birth of her third child, founder Karen Kassis left her career to spend more time with her children. Looking for a place to have a party, she found all the places booked, overpriced, and offering little redeeming value. But Karen knew there had to be an alternative; after careful research Funtastic opened in 2008. As Funtastic’s name grew, Karen built trust with families and a stellar reputation with kindergartens. The center has also become the focus of franchising opportunity as fans have inquired, wanting a Funtastic of their own. Try it today and you’ll understand why!

Additional Perks As if all of Funtastic’s sections weren’t enough, they also offer… - A fully equipped birthday area that can accommodate up to 50 children. - Air conditioning — a very important factor in the summer heat! - A sunny and inviting coffee shop for parents (with real coffee!). - Free WiFi to work while you wait. - CTV that allows you to watch your child from the coffee shop, and soon you’ll have the capability to watch them live from your home or office.

Go’s Kinzi Jones checked out She Can, Jordan’s first scrapbook and hobby center that is sending local crafter’s hearts atwitter

N

o longer must those who delight in designing hand-embellished photo albums bring the supplies from out of the country. Maha Al Labadi, founder and creative director of She Can, which opened only four months ago, has fulfilled the whimsical fancies of ladies looking to make family memories tangible. She Can is located behind Robina Studios, across from the JETT Bus terminal at 7th Circle. The entrance is clever and inviting, and after climbing the spiral staircase, the firsttime visitor is surrounded by visual delights: a well-ordered riot of color, coordination, and creativity-inspiring tools of the craft. Every square centimeter is covered with supplies, a dizzying variety of papers, decorations, ribbons, and finished products. One wall is filled with Images by: Claire Collins dozens of hues of custom-dyed buttons. Blinging rhinestones are stacked in jars in graduated shades from pastel to jewel-tones. It is crafter eye-candy. All these bits and bobs unite with the goal to make memories tangible, framing lifeevents of a family heritage. She Can was the quickly realized dream of Maha Al Labadi. Maha studied and worked in graphic design, and enjoyed using visual layering of images in advertising. This technique, she discovered, was much like digital scrapbooking. Yet, she eventually had enough with working on a computer; she longed for more hands-on involvement and felt that one-dimensional design alone was limiting. She began to teach herself how to scrapbook, going to Dubai for supplies when she couldn’t find the basics here. One day, she had had enough and decided to quit Creating her job and pursue a dream that wasn’t all that Memories clear even to her. She Can has had over After a year of perfecting her craft in her 350 kids come through for classes, birthdays, bedroom, persevering through a cycle of trial bridal showers, even and error and selling at bazaars, ACE Hardware goodbye parties.

Their home quickly became a warehouse. When Maha became the Jordanian representative for US scrapbooking giants, soon boxes of materials began piling up in her room. “It was like opening birthday presents; I played with every single piece, jumping up and down like a kid.” She Can’s success has taken Maha by surprise, and word-of-mouth has supplied new

customers as fast as they could “like” She Can’s Facebook page. But more than a store, Maha’s vision for She Can is to be a place to encourage a creative spark in children, an alternative way for the “PlayStation generation” to use their time productively. From the beginning, Maha has offered classes for kids and adults alike to give them the tools to express themselves. “I want kids to be proud of their identity, and see that each one, provided with the same materials, can come up with their own unique creation. I have seen it provide a healthy form of competition that leads to the satisfaction of excellence. Little boys who usually don’t sit still are so focused on their project that they don’t move. It hones their fine motor skills.” Always with an eye out for new trends, Maha’s next step is to develop rubber stamps in Arabic calligraphy for greeting cards and albums. She has already had franchising Scan Here inquiries from excited women in Egypt, for Facebook Lebanon, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai. Her dream, however, is to open a huge local craft center, with room for all to express their creative energy through every medium: scrapbooking, painting, ceramics, knitting, quilting — a place to gather, She Can Scrapbooking talk, and inspire one another. Says Maha: “I want & Hobby Center to change the culture of craft in Jordan. Come 7th circle and try it yourself.” (077) 550 4092

  Tailors and jewelry makers have discovered her wares, and teen entrepreneur Alia Shaban was one of She Can’s earliest and most vocal cheerleaders: “My mom and I drove around Sweifieh searching for it, when we finally found it and climbed the staircase, we were in awe: was this place for real in Amman? I don’t scrapbook, but I use the yarn, buttons, and ribbons for the bracelets I sell at Souk JARA (Fawzi Malouf St.). Maha was really helpful and it is hard not to be creative surrounded by the variety of fun stuff available!” AUG. 2011 | 27

Sweet Treats

Go stopped by The Delights Shop for a taste of their exquisite dates and chocolates, perfect for Ramadan and Eid gifting Images by: Ibraheem Shaheen

History

Lesson The Delights Shop owes its delicacies to a little Jordanian family farm

In 1998, a family farm, known as the Progressive Agricultural Investment Company (PAI), was set up in the Jordan Valley to grow the Medjool date, known for its large size and delicious flavor. PAI was the first of its kind in the Kingdom — the only family farm producing a Jordanian product that competed with the international market in terms of quality, price, and packaging. As a pioneer in its field, PAI expanded and set up The Delights Company for Dates & Chocolates to fulfill the potential of the Medjool date. After pairing the flavorful date with the Belgian chocolate Belcolade, The Delights Shop was born! 28 | AUG. 2011

Set Your Eyes On This Go looked into Jordan’s LASIK eye surgery facilities, which are among the best in the world

Words by: Annisa Rochadiat & Floris Janssens-Andrejew

E

very year, medical travellers from all over the world travel all the way to Jordan just to benefit from the Kingdom’s stateof-the-art medical services and technologically advanced private hospitals. As a medical tourism hub, Jordan is ranked first in the Middle East and fifth the world over. In 2008, about 250,000 foreign patients were treated here alone, generating revenue of over a billion dollars. Jordan’s excellent reputation in medicine is also shared in the field of laser eye corrective surgery, commonly known as LASIK. LASIK stands for Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis. This entails a procedure that reshapes the cornea (the part of the eye that helps focus light to create an image on the retina), thus altering the focusing power of the eyes. It essentially

allows you to see better and become less dependent on your glasses and contacts, or even do away with them permanently. The procedure can be done to correct farsightedness, nearsightedness, and/or astigmatism. With nearsighted patients, LASIK flattens the toosteep cornea, while on farsighted people, the laser creates a steeper cornea. For those with astigmatism, the irregular cornea is smoothened out into a more regular shape. Although LASIK is the most commom laser vision corrective procedure, it isn’t the only possibility for those who’d like to improve their vision. There are other methods too, like IntraLASIK (all-laser LASIK), PRK, LASEK, and Epi-LASIK. And each of these varies in terms of risk profile, comfort level, and recovery time. - Specialty Eye Hospital: Opening its door in 1998, it was the first hospital in Jordan specializing in the field of ophthalmology. Al Madinah Al Munawarah St., (06) 551 1176, www. eyehosp.com

- Sharif Eye Center: Established in 2007, about 70% of this center’s patients are foreigners. Mai Ziyadeh St., 3rd Circle, Jabal Amman, (06) 464 4066, www. sharifeyecenters.com

Optimal

Optics Despite the fact that laser eye corrective surgery has been gaining popularity these days, not all those sporting eyeglasses or contacts are qualified candidates

There are ocular concerns, on top of other factors, like medical, psychological and occupational, that may lead to your being disqualified for surgery. High-risk trauma patients like martial art enthusiasts and police officers, for instance, may need careful consideration when it comes to selecting the flapless procedure, as the flap may be dislodged or damaged when the eye is exposed to severe trauma, even years after surgery. Special consideration may also apply to people suffering from diabetes, who are more prone to contracting infections as they heal slower than others. Other than that, understanding the limitations and possible complications of laser corrective eye surgery based on your own value system is key prior to opting for the procedure. Don’t let your friends or doctors pressure you into it!

With flap procedures like LASIK and IntraLASIK, a thin corneal flap is lifted away from the underlying membranes and laser treatment is then placed on the exposed surface area (the stromal bed). The flap is repositioned over the stroma layer for healing. PRK, LASEK, and Epi-LASIK, on the other hand, are flapless procedures that differ based on the techniques used to remove the epithelium (or the superficial layer of the cornea). Epi-LASIK is said to be the latest generation of LASIK procedure that combines the desirable features of the other methods, and is suitable for those with thin corneas or other abnormal cornea conditions. Experts also say Epi-LASIK allows for a more rapid visual recovery — about three to four days compared to seven days or more with PRK, or five to seven days with LASEK. Within each category — flap and flapless — the procedures are similar in terms of speed of recovery, comfort level, and overall risk profile. The two categories, however, differ substantially when compared to one another. Even though the flapless procedure is the safest and most effective option, it’s less popular compared to the flap method. This is mainly due to greater post-operative discomfort, prolonged recovery time, and also possible retreatment associated with the former. In some cases, choosing between the two procedures isn’t really an option, as those with corneas that are too thin for the flap procedure, would be recommended to undergo the flapless method instead. Regardless of the types of procedures, most experts agree that surgeon skill and experience, and the quality of care before and after a corrective eye surgery procedure are far more critical factors affecting the final outcome. If you’re considering laser eye corrective surgery and you’re in Jordan, then consider yourself lucky — you’ve got quite the selection of top facilities specializing in eye care. However, as with any surgical procedure, it’s best to do your own research and speak with several doctors before moving forward with your method of choice. AUG. 2011 | 35

f you’re into trying new things and are open to new experiences, Spa Time’s Doctor Fish treatment might just be for you. This natural therapy originating from Turkish spas, involves the use of Garra rufa, a special species of fish that feeds on, among other things, dead skin. Doctor Fish is usually administered to the hands and/or feet, and has become a popular complementary addition to manicures and pedicures. The process entails submerging your limb(s) of choice into a bath containing several Garra rufa and sitting back and relaxing while the fish do all the work cleaning your skin. They clear away your body’s dead skin, thus leaving healthy skin to grow in its place. Already enjoyed in such countries as Japan, Belgium, the Netherlands, Singapore, India, Thailand, the US, and the UK, this unique treatment is spreading rapidly across the globe, with Jordan joining the trend just a few months ago. Apart from being a desired cosmetic beautifying therapy, Doctor Fish is especially sought after by those who suffer from various skin disorders, like psoriasis and eczema. Since these ailments are characterized by dermatitis (or inflamed skin) and overgrowth of skin cells, this remedy is an effective treatment as these fish specifically target the problematic skin areas. If Doctor Fish is something that intrigues you, why not try the treatment yourself? Book an appointment with Spa Time now, and we guarantee this is something you’ll be telling all your friends about!

  From facials, to body treatments (including wraps, floats, and exfoliation), to spa packages, Spa Time is a fully equipped and staffed wellness facility offering it all.

DIARY OF AN ADRENALINE JUNKIE A thrill-seeker’s adventures by Go’s Karen Simon

Wadi Wading Go got together again with the great guides of Tropical Desert and headed out to Jordan’s longest canyon, Wadi Hasa, for a day of wet wadi hiking

Images by: Abdallah Hijazi

P

rior to going on this trip, I had heard a lot about Wadi Hasa from the outdoor lovers of this country — “It’s so green!” “It’s really tropical.” “It doesn’t even look like Jordan!” — so you could say that I was pretty excited about finally going there for myself. The Tropical Desert guides, Team Go, and the other members of the hiking group for that day, gathered at the Tropical Desert’s office by 3rd Circle at 7:30am on a Friday morning and off we headed. Wadi Hasa is about a two hour drive from Amman. When you reach it, it doesn’t look like much at first; the landscape is mostly arid and rocky. However, once you descend into the gorge, another world opens up — one of winding rivers, bamboo forests, and small rushing waterfalls. They weren’t kidding when they said this place was tropical! After a couple of descents down two natural waterslides (major fun!), you get to the first large pool of water, after which, you eventually arrive at a spot where it’s deep enough to go cliff jumping (that’s right, cliff jumping in the middle of a canyon!). The rest of the trail involves wading in water from shin- to chest-deep, with a few occasions of outright swimming, and some bouldering when negotiating the rocks. It’s a great way to spend a summer afternoon, especially as the wadi’s water keeps you cool and the canyon’s walls block out the sun (just be prepared to deal with insects and even crabs). 40 | AUG. 2011

If you want adventure but haven’t been to Wadi Hasa, you should definitely check it out. Tropical Desert is by far the best team to go with, as the guides know the wadi inside and out. Plus they’re a fun group that still makes safety a priority. So find out when they’re heading there next, and get ready for an awesome experience.

My tip: Be careful of the slippery rocks! As lots of the rocks you’ll be walking on will be underwater, some will be extra slippery (particularly the greenish moss covered ones). So make sure to plant each step firmly to avoid slipping. If you’re wading next to a rock face or between trees, you can hold on to the walls or branches for support and balance.

Hike Ready Tropical Desert will provide you with the basics for the hike, but you should also bring a few things of your own

  If you’re planning to take along any electronics with you, like your phone or your camera, be sure to bring them in a waterproof bag or pouch as they will definitely get wet otherwise. Other good things to consider bringing or wearing are: - s turdy walking shoes - comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, and that won’t be too heavy when weighed down by water - sunscreen - a hat or some form of head covering - a backpack for carrying the water and sandwiches provided for the day Life jackets are provided by Tropical Desert, and if need be they also carry a first aid kit.

Respecting Nature

O ED T KNO NE As you will W

get fully drenched during this trip, it’s a good idea to bring a change of clothes that you can leave on the bus. You can change into these before making the return trip to Amman.

Eco-tourism is a wonderful thing, but an integral part of it should be nature’s conservation If you’re planning to try these outdoor adventures, remember that one of the reasons these trips are so great is that you get to visit beautiful, wild locations, mostly untouched by human development. It’s important to respect your surroundings once you’re out in the wadis so that they remain pristine for all to enjoy. This means not leaving any trash behind you (or even picking up trash you may find), not defacing the rock faces with graffiti or other markings, and as much as possible, leaving the flora and fauna that surrounds you undisturbed.

to worry about parking if you attend an event at this new boxing arena as Sports City is fully equipped to handle loads of cars and people!

Apart from all the facilities a fighter could ask for, the boxing arena’s building also offers: - two cafeterias with access to outdoor terraces and gardens - locker rooms including showers and a sauna - two lounge areas, one on the ground floor and one for VIP guests This is guaranteed to be the place for local, regional, and international sporting events to remember. 42 | AUG. 2011

ordan is proving, yet again, to be a regional pioneer in combat sports. The brand new boxing arena, under the auspices of Midrar Sports and located within the sprawling grounds of King Hussein Sports City, is the country’s most advanced facility for fighters who specialize in boxing, kickboxing, and MMA. The arena itself seats over 2000 people — including a deluxe VIP area for those well-to-do spectators — around an official Adidas boxing ring (which can be switched out for other sorts of combat rings) and is perfect for grand sporting events and/or competitions. Plus, furnished with state-of-the-art electronics, such as multiple large LCD screens and a room specifically for event

filming and commentary, it’s no wonder that this arena will be the new location for the exclusive MMA Cage Warrior Fight Night 2 event happening 8 September. Apart from a modern arena, this boxing facility also boasts an unparalleled athlete’s gym, with top of the range equipment, including Cybex treadmills, rowing, and weight lifting machines, and Ivanko weights known for their utmost durability. And across from the gym, is a training room, filled to the brim with combat-specific training equipment — from a training ring to dozens of Adidas punching bags to several Ergo speed bags and even Fairtex wall pads. This place is a boxer’s dream.

Lexus shows off its versatility with its brand new IS 300C. Go’s Samer Aksoy tells us how… Images by: Thaer Abu Hamdeh

Pit Stop

Since it’s Ramadan, my craving for food was way more than usual…

At some point during our road test I wondered what type of glorious food we were having for Iftar, and how could I make the eating experience even more festive than usual? So I passed by Crumz Bakery and Café in Dabouq to buy some desserts. I was greeted with a large variety to pick and choose from, which turned out difficult as everything looked tasty, but I could only buy so much! However, I’m happy to report that once we dug into my selection during Iftar, Crumz did not disappoint at all. Crumz Bakery & Café, Jum’ah Al Shibli St., Dabouq, (06) 5413230 46 | AUG. 2011

ummer, the season where everything rises; heat, social outings, and in this case, my eyebrows. Allow me to explain exactly why my eyebrows became part of the group mentioned above. On an average summer day, I was handed over the car keys to a new Lexus IS 300C, but this is not your average car, actually it’s far from it. You see, this Lexus has all you need, and then some. First of all, it’s a convertible with a folding hardtop, which tucks away in just 20 seconds. Second of all, it has a 3.0-liter V6 engine, which provides ample power on demand and makes the needle seamlessly span the speedometer. The list of pros goes on and on. My initial eyebrow raising begins. I walked around the car looking at its exterior design; all latest Lexus models use a design philosophy called L Finesse. To sum it up, it’s the subtle use of creases and curves around the exterior, which supposedly creates an emotional bond between driver and car. As a car enthusiast it was fun looking for those details — at some point I think the car even winked at me. Overall the IS 300C’s design sits just between fluid, smooth lines and edgy, sharp accents. The interior of this Lexus is elegant and user-friendly. Aesthetically, it greets you with high quality materials that are smooth in look and feel, while elegant lines echo the exterior. The car we got to experience, demonstrated luxury without a drop of wood; refreshing. Ergonomically, everything is exactly where you want it. And since this is a Japanese car — and a Lexus — cutting edge technology is its nature, such as the large touch screen in the middle of the dashboard, or the 14-speaker Mark Levinson sound system. Not to mention the leather seat felt just right as it provided support and a cosseting feel. I placed the keyfob into a nearby cup-holder, and with my foot on the brake pedal, I pressed the engine start button. The speedometer and RPM needles lit up first and flicked playfully, then the engine awoke, lighting up the instrument panel with an elegant florescent white color. Once I got familiar with the car, it was time to head out; I needed a place that had all Lexus types of roads, which are quiet, not too far, yet IS 300C had nice scenery. Then it struck me, what would starting at be greater than to head off to Dabouq for a spin? Cruising comes naturally in this Lexus; it gives you the feeling that it was built for this. Whether the roof is up or down, you feel a sense of occasion and delight. The engine picks up speed effortlessly as the car glides on the streets — flowing without issue above potholes, uneven patchwork, and speed bumps (not to mention the dreaded home-made ones). It can handle any road imperfection with ease. Now my eyebrows were staying up.

5 reasons to want the Lexus: 1. Folding Hardtop: Nothing beats the drop top experience. 2. Gearbox: Seamless, it goes through gears without a single judder. 3. Reliability: Toyota’s recall aside, Lexus cars are among the most reliable cars on the planet, period. 4. Ride: Tames the roughest of roads with total ease. 5. Feel good factor: A solid 8.5 out of 10.

The more time I spent getting acquainted with this car the more I was impressed with what it has to offer. Usually there is a rule of thumb that convertibles have terrible rigidity; turn a corner enthusiastically and the car can heave and shudder as the body displays the lack of a roof. But this convertible is something different — with a simple press of a button the roof stows away. Turn that same corner and it steers through it unscathed, without a slight bother. Cruising aside, now it was time to explore the IS 300C’s playful side — which was glimpsed during the engine start sequence. I wondered if the sculpted paddle shifters performed as good as they looked. So, I shifted the handle of the six-speed automatic gearbox into the “S” mode. I headed out onto Dabouq’s twisty roads to see and my, was I pleased! By this time my eyebrows where at the back of my head. The bond had undoubtedly been established, but sadly it was time to leave our Dabouq proving grounds and head back to the dealer. I returned the car keys and looked at the Lexus one last time and sighed, I swear it winked at me once more. What a charmer. AUG. 2011 | 47

Parking Lot Races Images by: Alankar Rai

Go’s Felix Padgen-Ratcliffe checked out Park Plaza’s new go-karting spot, Raceways Karting, for an afternoon of driving fun

Karting Safety Go-karting can be a whole lot of fun, but keep these tips in mind to ensure everyone’s safety

A

mid the hustle and bustle — and the chaotic traffic — of Sweifieh sits the Park Plaza. Much of it is still under construction, while many of the upper floors are dedicated to onsite parking for customers. These large, open spaces are perfect not just for parking cars, but for go-karting too! Until now anyone wanting to indulge in a spot of racing in the city has had to travel out to the karting center on Queen Alia Airport Road — a great venue but a Raceways Karting little too far for some. Park Plaza Now Park Plaza offers the thrill Salah Shemat St., of go-karting in the center of the city. Swefieh, One half of the 5th floor parking lot (06) 581 4544 has been converted into Raceways 48 | AUG. 2011

Karting’s center, with lines of painted tires lining the floor, demarcating the winding track. It’s not a huge race space, but it’s certainly ample for an afternoon of racing. A possible expansion could be in the pipeline too, meaning up to double the racing space. The company has 12 cars, and up to eight drivers can race at any one time. Special deals are offered too — buy four, tenminute slots (for 32 JOD) and get a fifth for free. Group bookings are possible, and again special prices (depending on the size of the group) can be arranged. Just make sure that you take your race mindset off with your helmet; don’t try anything adventurous in the traffic below on your way home!

- It doesn’t matter if you think you’re a racing legend, you should always wear a helmet. Accidents can happen! - Loose clothing and sneakers are the ideal things to wear when go-karting to ensure your comfort and ease in driving. - If your go-kart starts making unusual noises or vibrating abnormally, stop the kart and call for help. Excessive noise or vibration is generally a warning of loose or worn parts. - Double-check your kart’s tires to see if they’ve got the right amount of pressure. If they aren’t the right pressure, the go-kart can become unstable, affecting your braking and steering.

O ED T KNOW NE All

go-karting equipment is rented with the price of the race. That’s just 8 JOD for ten minutes of track time!

52 | AUG. 2011

J

ordan is a country offering up a vast array of different environments and climates; here we can find everything from arid deserts and lush wetlands to sprawling mountain ranges and forested highlands. One of the foremost areas of this latter region is the Ajloun Forest Reserve, located northwest of Amman. Founded in 1987, this reserve — sitting on 13km2 of thriving woodland — was set up by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) to protect the area’s ecological importance. As less than 1% of the Kingdom’s land mass is covered by open woodland, the Ajloun region — with its flourishing evergreen oaks, carob, wild pistachio, and wild strawberry trees — accounts for a significant part of Jordan’s forested area. Plus, with a wide range of animal biodiversity that includes wild boar, jackals, red foxes, Indian crested porcupines, striped hyenas, and wolves to name just a few, the Ajloun Forest Reserve is a critical sanctuary for the country’s otherwise endangered species. And in 2000, BirdLife International and the RSCN declared that the forest was one of Jordan’s Important Bird Areas. The reserve is even home to a captive breeding program that is aiming to reintroduce into the wild the locally extinct roe deer.

  Mar Elias to Ajloun Castle

This is an optional continuation to the Prophet’s Trail and it’s not for the faint of heart, as the trek will take you all the way out to Ajloun Castle several kilometers away. Guided trail, 10km Estimated time: 5 – 6 hrs

Note: Plan to start any guided tour at 8:00 am, except for the Rockrose Trail and Soap Maker’s Trail, which can start at 12:00 pm.

The RSCN thus created this reserve to spread awareness about this region’s significance, while creating a retreat for those living in Jordan or visiting from abroad. Ajloun’s Forest Reserve is open for daily visits (ranging from 2 – 7 JOD, depending on if you’re a local or not) or for overnight stays in one of their five wooden cabins or ten tented bungalows (check their Website for detailed pricing). This is the perfect place to escape to if you’re trying to get away from the city and want a rural and rustic experience. Or if you feel like corporate life is getting your team down and that they could benefit from a nature retreat, this sanctuary — with its function and meeting facilities — is an ideal solution. A stay at the reserve means exploring peaceful forest trails, seeing gorgeous flora (the wild strawberry tree with its vivid colors is particularly amazing), spotting unique fauna (the roe deer are known to come out in the early morning), dining al fresco (a variety of meals are available, but must be booked ahead of time), and simply enjoying the fresh air. If summer has got you missing the cooler climates and natural greenery, a visit to the RSCN Ajloun Forest Reserve may be just what you need.

  In an effort to support the local community, the RSCN has also established the Soap House, the Calligraphy House, and the Biscuit House. These initiatives are providing hundreds of jobs to the local women of the surrounding villages, encouraging the area’s sustainable development. The Soap House — already popular among Ammanis, thanks to the shop off of Rainbow St. — produces local beauty products using natural ingredients like olive oil, fruits, herbs, and even Dead Sea salts, while the Calligraphy House teaches visitors about the art of Arabic calligraphy and sells prints, t-shirts, and other script-related pieces. The Biscuit House produces foodstuffs from olive crisps, to sesame energy bars, and sweet cookies, utilizing ingredients that can be grown in the surrounding areas. These three “houses” can be found in Rasun, Ajloun’s neighboring village, and are worth the drive if you want to learn about this community, its history, and the products that each are handcrafting. Or if you’re interested in any of these products, but aren’t planning to make the trek up to the north of the country, you can find them at Wild Jordan’s Nature Shop (Othman Bin Affan St.) in Jabal Amman.

visiting during the summer, because the reserve is in Jordan’s north highlands, it gets cold at night! Consider bringing extra blankets or sweaters, jackets, and thick socks!

Ajloun Castle

Go headed north of Amman towards Jordan’s green countryside to visit Ajloun Castle, the 800-year-old fortress

S

Local Legend

itting high above the town of Ajloun, atop Jabal Auf, the 12th century Ajloun Castle (or Qal’at Ar Rabad, Arabic for “Hilltop Castle”) still stands proudly today. Built in 1184 –1185 CE by Izz Al Din Usama — a general and nephew of Salah Ad Din Al Ayyubi (better known as Saladin) — this fortress was built to contain the expanding Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem and as a direct response to their building of the Belvoir Fortress on the opposite side of the valley. Ajloun Castle also stood as a base to control and develop Ajloun’s iron mines, as well as protect the communication routes between Jordan and Syria. One of a chain of forts that lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates all the way to Cairo, the fortress at Ajloun is a great example of Arab and Islamic

54 | AUG. 2011

Before the castle was erected, there stood an ancient monastery

  When you look about the fortress at Ajloun, you may notice that some of the stones with which the castle was built, have crosses carved into them. According to a local tradition, told by a 13th century Arab historian, an ancient monastery once stood on this site, and was inhabited by a Christian named Ajloun. When the monastery fell into ruin, the castle took its place as well as the name of the monk.

military architecture. The original castle was built as a rectangle with four square towers that had arrow slits incorporated into its thick walls — these were ideal for protection by archers. Qal’at Ar Rabad also boasts a south side entrance, which was once protected by a surrounding moat that averaged 16m in width, with a depth of up to 15m. This huge structure dominated a large part of the northern Jordan Valley and the main passages — Wadi Kufranjah, Wadi Rajeb, and Wadi Al Yabes — that led to it. Today, this site is well worth the visit. Much of the structure has been restored and visitors can enjoy exploring the castle’s many chambers, stairwells, and towers. Jordan’s Department of Antiquities has also set up a small yet detailed museum within the fortress, which reveals fascinating facts about the castle itself as well as the people that once inhabited this locale and its surrounding areas. As the weather is still great, August is a good time to make the journey up to Ajloun Castle. So, if you’re in need of a dose of history, check out this amazing centuriesold stronghold.

A visit to Ajloun Castle only costs 1 JOD per person, but you must purchase the tickets at the Ajloun Visitor’s Center, which is a few hundred meters down the road from the fortress’ entrance. Because of the road’s steepness, this would definitely be easier to drive than walk.

EDTOKNOW NEBring a pair

of binoculars with you to Ajloun Castle and you won’t regret it! The views from here of the surrounding forests and towns are breathtaking.

Sharm El Sheikh The perfect getaway for the Eid Al Fitr break, Sharm El Sheikh, offers visitors fantastic diving, desert adventures, top hotels, and fun for the family

N

ot too long ago Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt was a tiny fishing village with very few inhabitants, but it has rapidly developed into one of the most popular tourist destinations within our region. With endless activities for those who like the highlife as well as for the off-the-beaten-path traveler, it’s no surprise that Sharm is a leading regional getaway spot.

The recent political events that have taken place in Egypt have led to a dramatic decrease in the country’s tourism, however, at time of print Sharm El Sheikh is not considered dangerous for travelers. With fewer tourists in the city and fantastic deals on offer at all the hotels, now is the time to rediscover the beauty of Sharm El Sheikh.

Getting There

An Insider’s Guide to

Royal Jordanian operates daily flights from Amman or Aqaba to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Alternatively, there are plenty of regular charter flights available with local travel agencies.

Shop Till You Drop  Find anything and everything at Sharm’s Old Market On the western end of Sharm El Sheikh, you’ll find the “old town” known locally as the Old Market. Here you can spend days on end exploring the stalls and shops that sell everything from local souvenirs to perfumes to some of the freshest seafood you can find. If you’re prepared to haggle, you’re bound to find some great deals.

What to Do

Quad Biking in the Sinai Desert

For thrill-seekers, riding the desert dunes on quad bikes is a fantastic day out. Plenty of tour operators offer this trailblazing adventure and can pick you up from your hotel and take you out into the desert for guided hours of fun.

Scuba Diving in the Red Sea

The Red Sea offers divers plenty of beautiful marine life to discover and Sharm El Sheikh boasts some of the best diving in the world. The Ras Mohammed National Park is a protected marine reserve where divers can explore Shark Reef, Yolanda Reef, and the SS Thistlegorm wreck.

Geneva Globe-Trotter

Small City With Big Heart

Cosmopolitan Geneva is the perfect destination if you want a bit of city, a bit of country, and a lot of culture

S

ituated on the southwestern part of Switzerland, along the Lac Léman, Geneva is arguably the world’s smallest metropolis. Yet despite its size, this is a global city, a financial hub, and a center for diplomacy. Inhabited for millennia, it was during the Middle Ages that Geneva became a prosperous city-state — the city’s ancient ramparts and defensive walls still stand proudly. Today, Geneva is multicultural; full of history and art for those antiquities buffs, as well as great shopping, trendy cafés, and a pumping nightlife for those modern jetsetters. This is the perfect destination if you’re looking for Europe in a bite-size format.

EDTOKNOW NEEach August,

Geneva hosts the famous Fêtes de Genève, a weeklong party by the lake. Also, 1 August is Swiss National Day — always a fun time. For details, visit www.fetes-degeneve.ch.

Carouge

Vieille Ville

Parc de la Perle du Lac

  Despite being landlocked and hundreds of kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea, Carouge offers a little taste of Southern Europe in the middle of Alp country. Once a small city ruled by the Kingdom of Sardinia — thus the distinctly Mediterranean feel and chessboard design of this suburb — today Carouge is a hub for stylish boutiques, artisans’ shops, and trendy restaurants. And at night it transforms into a nightlife spot for those who prefer smaller venues. Nicknamed the “Greenwich Village of Geneva,” this Turin-esque area is worth the detour to see a village within a city.

  Geneva’s ancient Vieille Ville (or “Old Town”) is home to some of the city’s most celebrated sites, like the Barbier-Mueller Museum (housing over 7,000 historical pieces), the Cathédrale St. Pierre (a 12th century cathedral and John Calvin’s adopted church), and the Maison Tavel (Geneva’s oldest house, from the 1300s). A stroll through the Vieille Ville today, means navigating cobblestoned streets, relaxing at cozy terraces, and shopping at great antiques stores. The Old Town is surrounded by medieval ramparts so despite being by Geneva’s most popular shopping district, it feels separate and cozier than the city.

 Found on the right bank (or rive droite) of Lake Geneva, the Parc de la Perle du Lac is one of the city’s most beautiful natural areas. A sprawling garden of lush flora — including centuries-old trees — this park offers visitors views of France’s Mont Blanc and the lake’s Jet d’Eau, as well as a lakeside respite from Geneva’s city center. Also home to several museums, a university, and a popular restaurant, the park is a favorite among all. Fun trivia: the park’s name comes from Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf’s wife, who said, “Ceci est la perle du lac!” (or “This is the pearl of the lake!”) upon seeing this spot’s view of Lac Léman.

Closest bus stop: Carouge Tram/bus lines that get you there: 12, 13, 14, 41, 42, 44, and 45. Must See: Carouge’s Farmers’ Market, every Wednesday and Saturday at the Place du Marché

Acting Charitably

The holy month of Ramadan is all about charity and giving back; Go’s Annisa Rochadiat uncovers two organizations that are doing their all

CSR 60 | AUG. 2011

Corporate donors can help Al Fawanees by becoming a “partner.” This means providing venues, discounts on toy gifts, media and logistics, or by making a donation of 20,000 JOD and above. Businesses can also become an Al Fawanees “sponsor” by pledging a lesser sponsorship.


I

n the Islamic tradition, alms giving and voluntarily spending one’s wealth in charity have always held a pinnacle place; they are integral to one’s faith. Sharing one’s blessings with others, particularly those less fortunate, is however, a gesture that is never more encouraged than during the holy month of Ramadan. There are many altruistic initiatives in Jordan, most of which operate with a particular Ramadan agenda. One of such is Al Fawanees, a social project set up specifically with the Kingdom’s underprivileged children in mind, including orphans, children with special needs and physical disabilities, and child refugees. Al Fawanees, literally meaning, “lanterns”— a common sight in the Middle East during Ramadan — is said to symbolize hope. Projected to become an umbrella organization for Ramadan charities, Al Fawanees seeks to share the Ramadan spirit and Eid joy by hosting 20 Iftar events spread out across Jordan’s 12 governorates, with each event catering to about 100 children. These Iftars rely on private and corporate sponsorship, with each child requiring a sponsorship fee of around 30 JOD. According to Project Director Marc Zenkner, at each Iftar, a child will have access to a special dinner, a range of games and activities, and — for the first time — they’ll also receive a personalized Ramadan gift made possible via interviews that the Al Fawanees conducted by volunteers. The team took pains in compiling a Ramadan gift wish list, now viewable on their Website. Apart from providing financial donations, if you’re looking to increase your rewards for good works and have at least an afternoon a week to dedicate your time to, you O can also volunteer and participate K T N O D E W in Al Fawanees’ upcoming NE This Ramadan events. year, the Al If you’re interested in Fawanees Project serving the community are aiming to fundraise 60,000 and helping those in need JOD to cover all not just during Ramadan, their expenses! but also throughout the year, then Family Kitchen is another worthwhile cause. Founded in

March 2009, this initiative aims to feed the poor and needy by distributing food — primarily surplus and untouched — from restaurants, hotels, and banquets in Amman. Apart from surplus food distribution, Family Kitchen also helps give out clothes, heaters in winter, and medical assistance to disadvantaged communities living in Jordan’s poverty pockets, including refugee camps. During last year’s Ramadan, Family Kitchen fed no less than 3,000 people throughout the month with just 20 volunteers and eight participating restaurants. Each night, volunteers would come collect untouched leftover Iftar

A child will have access to a special dinner, a range of games, and — for the first time — a Ramadan gift buffets from various hotels and restaurants and transported them to selected distribution points. Since earlier this year, the kitchen has helped distribute meals and food packages sponsored by the Crowne Plaza Amman, Tkiyet Um Ali, and the Jordanian Alliance Against Hunger in Manara and Karak. They’ve also aided in the delivery of baby supplies, clothes, and toys to underprivileged communities in Madaba. With charitable activities taking place almost every month, Family Kitchen tells us that volunteers are always welcome all year round, especially those who are able to provide logistical support like transportation. So get involved this month, but carry on the good deeds throughout the year, thanks to great organizations such as these!

Pay It

  Al Fawanees is constantly on the lookout for dedicated and passionate people as partners in their venture to help disadvantaged children. So if you’d like to get involved, log onto the Web and find one of their many online voices, starting with, www.al-fawanees.com. If you’d like to help out with the Family Kitchen as well, you can find more information about them on their Set time aside Facebook page, www.facebook.com/FamilyKitchen2009.

Book Releases

Buddha in the Attic Julie Otsuka Knopf Release Date: 23 August   Telling the story of eight young Japanese women brought over from their homeland to San Francisco to work as “Picture Brides” decades ago. In eight sections the novel examines the lives, hopes, dreams, and fears of these women, from the arduous boat journey over the Pacific, to meeting their new husbands, to adapting to life in an alien land. A masterful novel about the experience of uprooting oneself to a new culture, and the personal effect of the American Dream. Reason to go read it: Spellbinding and thought provoking, this book opens a window on the experience of immigration and acculturation, as well as a touching portrayal of human experience.

The Leftovers Tom Perrotta St. Martin’s Press Release Date: 30 August   On 14 October the town of Mapleton was struck by a strange, devastating disaster. Not an earthquake or a hurricane but something unheard of — half of the town’s people disappeared into thin air. Those left behind try to process what happened seeking various ways of coping. Some joined cults to get over their guilt, some tried to rebuild, some simply changed as people. Mayor Kevin Garvey is trying to restore the town but is torn by personal strife — his wife and son have joined cults and his daughter stopped being the good girl she was. Reason to go read it: Perrotta masterfully examines the human psyche via his characters, leaving us with a thought provoking novel.

ichael and Kelly Hayes, married for 24 years, decide to end their marriage. This book chronicles their life together from the end, backwards, starting on the day the two are due in court for their divorce. Kelly drives instead to New Orleans and checks into the Olivier House Hotel’s room 303 — the room in which they fell in love a quarter of a century earlier. Now seeped in her personal history she must make a decision that will forever affect her family.

Now You See It... Cathy N. Davidson Viking Books Release Date: 18 August   In 2003 Davidson, a professor at Duke University, gave free iPods to her class in an experiment; she was criticized for wasting time and money. But when students began coming up with innovative ways to use the iPods the idea was seen as a way to improve learning. Davidson shows that the systems of work and education we use today are outmoded for the digital age. She looks at experiments that use video games to teach, and companies that use virtual environments to train staff, to show what technology can bring us. Reason to go read it: While many complain about the time digital devices make us waste, this book cleverly assesses some of the useful applications that technology has.

But no one will take him seriously with his criminal past, so he resolves to solve the murders in order to prove his worth. Reason to go read it: A dark comic series, this is a perfect page-turner — suspense at every corner. Fans of murder mysteries should love this.

August & Everything After Live From Town Hall

  Slated for release 29 August, this will be the band’s first live DVD/ Blu-Ray. August & Everything After was an instant hit on its release in 1993, going on to sell millions of copies. Today it’s considered one of the best albums of its decade. In 2007, the band performed the album live for the first time in NYC, and this amazing DVD/Blu-Ray has captured it all, and in HD no less! 68 | AUG. 2011

  It might sound like a new thing to have Kanye and Jay-Z working together but, if you look back at Kanye’s early career, you’ll find that he first rose to fame as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records and achieved industry recognition as the producer on Jay-Z’s The Blueprint. The two have journeyed separately but have come together for this incredible collaboration that includes guest vocals from stars like Beyoncé, Mr. Hudson, and even Otis Redding! Release Date: 8 August Reason to go listen to it: Love them or hate them, this is arguably the most anticipated album of 2011.

Fountains Of Wayne Sky Full Of Holes Yep Roc Records

  It was the mid-90s when Adam and Chris, two guys who met as freshmen in college decided to take their student band professional. Their journey saw them take a short break and come back with a series of acoustic performances before deciding to put this 13-song all-new album out. One of the singles, “Someone’s Gonna Break Your Heart,” has cool lyrics, a nice hook, and shows they’ve come a long way since the MTV-championed “Stacey’s Mom”! “Richie and Ruben” is another track that, lyrically, you can’t help but like. Release Date: 2 August Reason to go listen to it: This is one of those lazy Friday morning albums to get yourself lost in!

Lenny Kravitz Black & White America Roadrunner Records/ Atlantic Records

Red Hot Chili Peppers I’m With You Warner Bros.

  It’s been four years since their last album Stadium Arcadium, not an unusually large gap but RHCP’s longest. One of the main reasons behind that was the change in the lineup — guitarist John Frusciante left and was replaced by Josh Klinghoffer. The band says that they consider this to be a new beginning. The first track released is, “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie,” and I personally think that you can hear a big difference; it’s undoubtedly RHCP, but with a slightly fresher sound. Release Date: 30 August Reason to go listen to it: If you’ve been an “on the fence” fan of RHCP, I think this will push you over to the “fan” side!

Kanye West/Jay-Z Watch the Throne Def Jam

Going Through Changes Eminem Recovery

Gutter Rainbows Talib Kweli Gutter Rainbows

Me No Wanna Sgt Tiki ft. Hanna Gargour

 This is Lenny’s 9th album and was originally supposed to be out earlier this year, but he wanted to take more time into what’s being called, “a journey of funk” — even well into the year, Kravitz admitted, “I don’t know what it’s called yet”! However, in May, he said it was finished and listeners already had a chance to hear the first track, “Come On Get It,” in an NBA commercial. Typical of Kravitz, it’s a sexy soulful performance with some awesome guitar, brass, and power-house vocals! Release Date: 30 August Reason to go listen to it: Lenny wants to get funky and this is funkin’ awesome!

Nero Welcome Reality Mercury

 This is the debut album from UK dubstep duo, who are already well-known in the electro world for producing tracks like 2009s dubstep hits “Act Like You Know” and a remix of The Streets’ “Blinded by the Lights.” Welcome Reality’s lead singles have received widespread acclaim and are quickly climbing European charts. This is not an album you’re going to want to chill out to though; this is the one you’re going to stick on to get pumped before you head out — it’s fast, heavy, layered, and full of wobble! Release Date: 15 August Reason to go listen to it: Because Nero placed in the top 15 of the BBC’s Sound of 2011 list, so consider this is an electro-fan must.

Humam Ammari Go’s Ramzi Ghurani

sat down with Jordan’s own gifted musician Humam Ammari

Live

Go: When did you first start playing music? Humam Ammari: When I was about 14 years old.

Entertainment

Each Ramadan, these popular singers draw in the crowds, so if you get a chance to catch them live, don’t miss it

Go: What made you start? HA: Back when I was in school I heard a friend playing “Layla” by Eric Clapton on the guitar, which I fell in love with and thought to myself, “he has to teach me!” He did and the rest is history.

Hani Mitwasi

Go: Which era/decade of music had the most influence on you? HA: The 80s, but I love the 70s too. Go: Which artists had the most influence on you? HA: Metallica, when I started picking up the guitar, and later on I was extremely influenced by Dave Matthews Band. Go: What’s your opinion on the music scene in Jordan? HA: I’m glad that more people are enjoying the music by local artists and actually supporting them. It’s encouraging that new bands are emerging and trying to blend genres and more young people are getting into the music scene. It’s something we definitely need. What people need to understand is that being a musician is like any other job, you don’t have to just do it on the side.

Hed Kandi

Go: Tell us a little bit about your upcoming album. HA: I spent 18 months in the studio recording the album, This Time Of The Day. It has 12 original songs with different moods and it covers various issues, so it’s a little bit for everyone at anytime. Wait for the launch coming up soon! Go: Where would you most want to perform live in the future? HA: I would really like to perform at Wembley Stadium (in London), Central Park (in New York City), Red Rocks (Colorado), and Woodstock (in Upstate New York)! Those would be the ultimate venues.

Set for release on 8 August, Ibiza 2011, boasts some of the year’s coolest tracks, promising to be the perfect complement to your summer party habits, whether that means afternoons by the pool, evenings chilling out, or nights out with friends.

Go: What does the future hold for you? HA: I’d like to think it holds a lot of guitars, and many, many concerts.

Ziad Saleh

Go: First album you bought? HA: I think it was Elvis’ Loving You. Go: Any shout outs? HA: A big thank you to my loyal fans for always inspiring me to make more music. Go: How about some quick advice for those just starting out? HA: I just wish that those who feel that they have talent would go for it and make an effort to do something with it. You don’t want to regret it when it’s too late to try!

Hey DJ! Go chats with SPIN 94.1’s Luma Al Adnani to discuss all things music related Go: How long have you been a radio DJ for? And how did you get into it? Luma Al Adnani: At the end of this month, I’ll have been a DJ for nine months. I actually became a DJ by accident. I had just finished my masters in international journalism, and was looking for a job. I was freelancing for a newspaper at the time, and months earlier I’d sent an email to SPIN looking for a job in production. Three months later I got an email from the program director saying they were looking for a presenter, which I hadn’t considered doing before, but I thought why not? After two months of interviewing, I got the job!

Go: What is your opinion on the music scene here in Jordan? LA: To be honest, there are those who amaze me and whose music I love. I especially appreciate when someone comes up with something new that is his/her own material. Then there are those who should just give up. Singing isn’t for everyone, but if you’re good, I will definitely support you. We’re always supporting local talents at our station and often have them on for interviews, and we’re happy to play their music. Go: What music do you mostly listen to? LA: I am a big fan of indie music, so I’m always playing a weird band no one’s heard of. I also prefer mellow, sad songs; they bring me inner peace, if that makes any sense.

Go: What do you think of this “Auto-Tune” phenomenon? LA: I think it’s proof that that particular singer

LA: I think without it, I wouldn’t have been as exposed to music as much as I have. We don’t have an iTunes music store in Jordan, so we can’t buy individual songs, and I think buying a whole

Q&A by: Kinzi Jones

Before we go...

Blogger of the Month

Ali Dahmash Age: 38 Nationality: Jordanian Blog Name: Under My Olive Tree Blog URL: undermyolivetree.com

Go: How long have you been blogging for? Ali Dahmash: Since 2006. Go: What got you into the blogosphere? AD: I first heard about blogging from my friend Fadi who had his first blog a few months before mine. I thought it was an amazing medium to talk freely about things that come to my mind — things that are relevant to me — and write about topics that I think are important. Blogging was how I discovered that I love writing! Go: How did you come up with “Under My Olive Tree”? AD: The olive tree is the main income of the people of the Middle Eastern region; it is also the symbol of prosperity, coexistence, and peace. Under the tree is where I come up with my thoughts.

96 | AUG. 2011

Go: What are your favorite things to blog about? AD: I’m always concerned about how the West perceives the Middle East and Islam. I’m also a peace activist so the Middle East crisis takes a large segment of my writings. I began to write about the Palestinian­– Israeli conflict and the sufferings of the Palestinians because of the Israeli occupation. Then my writings took another shift when I began writing stories from the region and especially Jordan — stories that humanize us. I believe that this is very important to improve our image in the West. Just before the war on Gaza in 2008, I started concentrating

Quick Qs: Blogger or WordPress? WordPress. Copyright or copyleft? Copyleft. Mac or PC? Mac. Desktop or laptop? MacBookPro. iPhone or BlackBerry? iPhone. iPod or MP3? iPod/ iPad. Coke or Pepsi? Pepsi in Jordan, Coke in the US. Na’meh wella khishneh? Khishneh but my favorite is chocolate ;)

on charity and volunteer work in Jordan and helping the local community. But after the war, I found out that I needed to show people how they can help the community to empower it. I want to be the light for people who want to make a difference but who are not sure how to do so. Today, my blog is an initiative and will be a registered NGO very soon. Now I focus on three things: education; health; and funding small businesses and projects that empower Jordan’s less fortunate.

Go: How do you think social media in Jordan is faring today? AD: Today, in Jordan, we have 1.4 million people on Facebook and 7,000 on Twitter and the number is increasing rapidly. Social media in Jordan is being utilized in a positive way; where many initiatives are calling for social change and political reform. And the good thing is that the government is listening.

Go: What is your piece of advice for someone who’s looking to enter into the blogosphere? Go: If you were stuck on a desert AD: You can write about anything island and could access only that comes to your mind, whether one social media site, which one it is sports, politics, social change, would it be and why? or fashion. The only thing you AD: Twitter! It’s easy, mobile, and need to be aware of is the source short. It is my source of information of information that you are using for what’s happening in Jordan, to write about and its credibility. regionally, and internationally. Use social media wisely!

Mad Dog Desert Marathon 2011

September may be a month away, but Go’s always looking ahead Flashback Adventures — Jordan’s adventure sport event organizers — is back this 3 September with the Mad Dog Desert Marathon (MDDM).
