WORDS STAND OUT THAT
Dear Students, In 1895, Kipling wrote a timeless poem entitled “IF”. Though written in a different era under a different sun, reading its powerful words today resonated deep within my being and triggered many thoughts. IF… What are our ifs of today? If you could be judged by family that you have always accepted and was still able to belong... If you could be betrayed by friends that you have chosen to call family and are still able to trust strangers...

If you could be stabbed by a life partner to whom you chose to give your heart and are still able to feel... Then you have lived a life that is full, and paid the price of being... human These are some of the many ifs that ran through my mind as I was reading Kipling’s poem. I urge you to Google it, read it, and send me your ifs on email@example.com

When did you start doing magic? I started learning and trying to perform magic ten years ago in primary school when we all had to make a presentation on something we find fascinating, I admired the work of David Copperfield so I presented him to the class but after watching videos of him, I thought of actually trying this whole magic thing out. Who discovered your talent? How did it evolve? My brother discovered it at first; this was after a year of many attempts to learn different tricks with cards and coins, he saw potential that I did have the slight of hand talent. My talent evolved as I practiced more and more until I eventually got to where I am today. When was your first official appearance? My first official appearance was at a friend’s birthday; there was a big crowd that day, my friend just wanted me to show his friend a trick, he was impressed and eventually I was crowded by a group of people all staring at what I was about to do next, that was when I realized that I must continue with what I am doing, it was all about the reactions. How many appearances have you done? Many appearances of street magic where I would casually walk in the street with a friend holding a camera and we would go around talking to random people I do not know and asking if it was possible to perform to them while taping it, the reactions from appearances like these are amazing and natural, I have done plenty of shows as well. Who and what inspired you as a magic professional? Every reaction I got after a trick I performed inspired me to continue. It does not matter where the audience is from, the unique thing about magic is that a trick is successful enough, then the reaction is always pleasing to the magician. I adore the positive reactions and this is what inspires me everyday to continue with magic.
Ramy Saboungui Where do you see Kuwait in this field? I know a couple of very good rising magicians that are Kuwaiti. I would want to see Kuwait gather these talented people and arrange shows for the beauty of the performance. Everyone enjoys magic and I would love to see it go big here. What was the biggest challenge you faced as an Arab magic professional? The biggest challenge was the fact that people don’t understand the term ‘magic’ very well. Magic tricks are just tricks, slight of hand with the speed needed for it to look real even though it is not. My challenge was that a lot of people do not appreciate magic and think its bad. What are you doing nowadays? Nowadays I tend to work silently on tricks I am developing on my own. I have had my full share of learning other people’s tricks and performing them, now I mainly focus on producing my own original tricks and this requires a lot of time.
16 - 17
Where do you plan to reach with your magic? I plan to reach far with magic, hopefully a show in Vegas maybe. I would want to be in a stage where it is just as easy to perform in front of thousands just like David Copperfield does without getting stage fright as when it comes to magic, a lot of things can go wrong, not to mention trying to jumble a bunch of things together with everyone staring directly at you to observe. Today when you look back is there anything you want to change? Yes, when I started to learn more about magic and tried to perform, I was not quite the best magician out there yet, the support was not that strong at first. Although support from my family was there, my friends at the time thought it was ridiculous and I was the laughing stock for a while, but when I started getting better the support rolled in. I just wish I had been supported more in the beginning as this might have pushed me more and more in to becoming better a lot faster. Who inspired you and how? David Copperfield was the main inspiration for me, I had the whole collection of videotapes of his work to books about him, and the way he reached the top in his time was outstanding. Although Copperfield is a stage magician, I started off as a street magician but through him, I realized that stage magic was where I would stand. What would you like to say to STUDENTALK readers? If you see a magician out there performing, enjoy the tricks they offer, as the reactions they get from you will be the breaking point of either continuing to do what they are doing or stop. Although I perform magic, whenever I see a magician perform, I would always admire what they have to offer, I would not try catching the trick and this is one of the problems of some audiences. Magic is not real; the tricks are merely illusions and a good teaser for the brain, so when a magician comes to perform to you, just sit back and enjoy it.

the most talented
on www.studentalk-online.com Name: Alaa Nasr Age: 19 Talent: Inspirational writing When did you start? It all began with my negative feelings. It was a time when things were not working properly for me, and when I felt hardship. At that time, I thought that perhaps I just need myself to feel better. I got myself a pen, and started writing my heart out, expressing my thoughts as if I were talking to someone. Who gave you support? I started alone, but then my mother came to brighten this path for me with her unique type of motivation, being there for me along the way. How did your talent evolve? I started reading books more and listening to lectures on YouTube that were related to the topics I’m interested in. Later on, when I made one of my friends read some of the pieces I wrote she decided that we should make inspirational videos to be uploaded on YouTube to reach more people around the world, and who knows, maybe, just maybe, they could change someone’s life. Were there any obstacles? Of course, but I BELIEVE that I have the ability to overcome those obstacles, as long as I want to. One of the things I’m sure that will stand along the way are people, people who
disagree with what I like, people who choose to discourage rather than encourage, people who point out the bad in you and erase all the good. Who is your muse? Ibrahim Elfiky, who passed away to be with the lord’s hands. Today when you look back is there anything you want to change? Nothing that I can think of, no. The pain of yesterday is today’s challenge for tomorrow’s strength; without all the mistakes, the fears, and the wrong decisions I took yesterday, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Any last words to the readers? You are here for a reason, to make a difference. Start simple, start with yourself, make sure that with everyday you make improvements, even If it’s just 1%. If you have a dream, GO GET IT, if it’s far, then take one step forward, and your dream will get one step closer.

Love whatever you do, if you can’t do whatever you want.

ITS MINI’S 53rd BIRTHDAY MINI, the legendary small car with a big attitude turns 53 on the 26th of August. For some, this age might mean slowing down and taking things a bit easy... but not for MINI! MINI is as young, fun and exciting as ever. A small car in size but big on space, design and personality, MINI is cosmopolitan, ageless and cheeky. Owned and loved even by the rich and famous (The Beatles, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Britt Ekland, and Twiggy to name a few) and considered the small car icon of the 1960s, the MINI concept remains as trend-setting today as it was 53 years ago. Today’s MINI line-up includes six models: the MINI Hatch, MINI Cabrio, MINI Clubman, MINI Countryman, MINI Coupe and most recently the MINI Roadster, the first open top two-seater MINI. So let’s raise a toast to MINI, the world’s first small car to achieve genuine global success.

Baume & Mercier: 2012 New Hampton Bracelet in Steel for Men Hampton epitomizes intimate harmony Of all of Baume & Mercier’s collections, the Hampton line perhaps most strongly embraces the brand’s inherent DNA and philosophy. In this recently re-vamped and updated series, relaxed and seaside living, as well as authenticity and lineage, are the unmistakable core messages. This stylish and uniquely alluring collection for both women and men features a refined design and timeless appeal. The Hampton Men’s line was missing just one attribute: a stainless steel bracelet. Thus, to complete the men’s line in style and to propose a duo offer complementary to the women’s Hampton metal bracelet watch, 2012 saw Baume & Mercier release two new appealing automatic models with an ergonomic integrated polished and satin-finished bracelet with its new triple folding security clasp.
Celebrating the New James Bond Film: The Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M “SKYFALL” Limited Edition In SKYFALL, to be released in autumn of 2012, James Bond will take to the screen for the 23rd time with Daniel Craig again assuming the role of the world’s favourite secret agent. And once again, 007 will wear an OMEGA Seamaster. To celebrate its seventh performance in a supporting role in a Bond film, OMEGA is launching the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M “SKYFALL” Limited Edition watch. Like every Planet Ocean, the new watch is ready for underwater adventure. Equipped with a unidirectional rotating diving bezel and a helium escape valve, the watch is water resistant 60 bar / 600 metres / 2000 feet. The watch has a 42 mm brushed and polished stainless steel case and a matching patented screw-and-pin bracelet whose divers’ clasp is engraved with “007”. The rotating diving bezel is distinguished by its matt black ceramic ring with a chromium nitride diving scale.

Tackling Obesity Obesity characterizes an excessive amount of body fat. Although a cosmetic concern for many, obesity may increase one’s risk of diseases and health problems such as heart disease, diabetics, and high blood pressure. Here, we highlight the causes of obesity as well as the two surgical methods offered at Royale Hayat to generate weight loss.
Bariatric Surgeries Offered at Royale Hayat
Several Underlying Causes of Obesity • Lack of Energy Balance Energy balance is a compromise between the energy in one’s body and the energy out. The energy in is the amount of energy or calories one consumes from food and drinks, while energy out is the amount of energy one’s body uses for breathing, digesting, and becoming physically active. • Environment Environmental factors include a lack of locations for physical activity in one’s community, long work hours, oversized food portions, lack of access to healthy foods, and food advertising. • Genes Overweight and obesity tend to run in families. One’s chances of becoming overweight are greater if one or both of the parents are overweight or obese. Genes also affect the amount of fat stored in the body, as well as where on the body the fat is carried. • Lack of Sleep Sleep helps maintain a healthy balance of the hormones that make one hungry (ghrelin) or full (leptin). When a lack of sleep occurs, levels of ghrelin go up and levels of leptin go downmaking one feel hungrier than when rested. 46 - 47
• Gastric Bypass Surgery Description: Gastric bypass is the most common type of weight-loss surgery. The surgery is done by making the stomach smaller causing food to bypass part of the small intestine. This will make one feel full more quickly than when the stomach is at its original size. Bypassing part of the intestine in turn reduces how much food and nutrients absorbed, leading to weight loss. Who is it For: Gastric bypass surgery is suitable for those severely overweight and unsuccessful at losing weight through diet and exercise. Surgery is generally considered when one’s body mass index (BMI) is equal to 35 or higher. Does it Work: On average, those who undergo gastric bypass lose more than half of their excess weight. The long term success is highest in those realistic about the amount of weight lost and who keep appointments with a medical team.
Prior to the Surgery: While gastric bypass can help reduce one’s risk of weight-related health problems, an extensive screening process for qualification must take place before to eliminate the major risks and complications from surgery. Post-Surgery Care: As one’s stomach can only handle small amounts of soft foods and liquids while healing, it is important to constantly sip water to avoid dehydration. Once able to add solid foods back into one’s diet, the person should be careful to chew food well and stop eating when full. As many of the minerals and vitamins that are easily absorbed are bypassed post-surgery, one must work with a dietitian to plan meals and take extra vitamin B12. Also, avoiding heavy lifting and strenuous exercise while recovering, is a must.
• Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Description: Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a procedure in which a surgeon removes a large portion of one’s stomach. The new, smaller stomach (80-85 % removed from its original size) then becomes approximately the size of a banana. The amount of food intake becomes limited, making one feel fuller after eating small amount of food. Who is it For: Those with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 or more will be allowed to complete the surgery. It is most often done on patients who are too heavy to safely complete other types of weight loss surgery. Does it Work: On average, those who undergo sleeve gastrectomy lose more than half of their excess weight. Losing this weight will improve any medical conditions one might have had, such as asthma, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Nonetheless, one must keep in mind that the surgery alone is not a solution to weight loss- eating less and exercising afterwards are key. Prior to the Surgery: The surgeon will have the patient undergo several tests and visits before conducting the surgery. A complete physical exam, blood tests, an ultrasound of the gallbladder, and nutritional counseling must be fulfilled in order to undergo a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Post-Surgery Care: After two days from the surgery, patients may go home. Afterwards, a diet of clear liquids and pureed foods will be consumed by the patient. The doctor will also recommend a diet, as meals should be small in order to avoid stretching the remaining stomach.

Recognizing Mental Health Concerns Statistically speaking, you probably know at least one person who has a mental health problem. Researchers have found that 20% of American adults and children suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in any given year. Given that many mental health concerns are biologically-based, it is likely that the rate of mental health problems in Kuwait is similar. Because mental health problems are so pervasive, it is imperative that people understand how to recognize them and how to help. Signs of mental distress Signs of mental distress and can include sudden or noticeable changes in physical appearance, poor hygiene, poor or odd social interactions, social withdrawal, intense emotions (e.g., excessively low or high moods). Sometimes sudden changes in grades or sudden changes in behavior (e.g., not attending class) can indicate mental distress. Difficulty sleeping and/ or changes in appetite (eating too much or not at all) are also common signs. Sometimes people experience emotional pain in physical ways. For example, sometimes frequent stomach pains and/or headaches can indicate excessive worry or stress. Depression Depression is one of the most common mental health concerns. It is also something that a lot of people experience from time to time and in some instances, it would be normal or even expected (e.g., after the death of a loved one). Depression can cause feelings of intense feelings of fatigue, hopelessness, and even thoughts of death. One of the primary symptoms of depression though is when people lose interest in things that they used to enjoy doing. For example, if someone used to always enjoy spending time with their cousins but suddenly starts spending excessive amounts of time alone in their room, it may indicate a problem. Depression is helped with counseling. Anxiety Anxiety is another very common mental health concern and there are a few different types. A common type of anxiety is typified by chronic worried thoughts that seem uncontrollable. People with this type are often worried about things that are out of their control (e.g., the health and safety of loved ones.) and have worried thoughts even when there is really nothing to actually worry about. Sometimes people experience panic attacks, which are very brief (about 5 48 - 49
minutes) episodes of intense anxiety and physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, hyperventilation, and narrowing of vision. The physical symptoms of panic attacks are so intense that it feels like you are having a heart attack. Anxiety can also be helped with counseling. How do people improve their mental health? If you or someone you know has a mental health concern, there is a lot you can do to help. Having a healthy lifestyle including eating nutritiously, sleeping 6-8 hours per night, regular exercise, and meditation can help. However, if the concern is having a negative impact on life (e.g., interfering with work, school, or relationships), one should seek professional counseling. Nicholas Scull, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist and has several years experience working with college students in college counseling centers including UCLA, University of WisconsinMadison, and Swarthmore College. He currently works as the Clinical Director at Fawzia Sultan Rehabilitation Institute (www.fsrikuwait.org).

Iconic MINI brand turns 53 MINI, the legendary small car with a big attitude, celebrates its 53rd birthday. Since its introduction in 1959, MINI has become an object and subject of obsession for so many people across the world. In fact, it was the first small car to achieve genuine global success. A small car in size but big on space, design and personality, MINI is cosmopolitan, ageless and cheeky. Owned and loved by the rich and famous (The Beatles, John Lennon and Clint Eastwood to name a few) and considered the small car icon of the 1960s, the MINI concept is as trendsetting today as it was 53 years ago.

INTERVIEWS STAND OUT THAT
David Beckham for H&M DB answers for autumn campaign 1. What kind of reactions have you received from the first season? I’ve had such an incredible reaction since we launched my bodywear range back in February with H&M. The response worldwide has been overwhelming. The launch was such a memorable time for me, from the party in London to the commercial shown during the Super Bowl in the US. Since the launch, it’s been so great to read all the comments from fans on my Facebook page, who always let me know exactly what they think about the bodywear range. Luckily, they love it! 2. Did it become what you expected? I’m so happy that men have really understood this isn’t a one-off collection. This is a bodywear brand with H&M that is here to stay. It’s great that men have been buying pieces to become part of their wardrobe, and are already relying on the comfort and quality of our designs. They know they can come back to H&M and find the same core range of bodywear products that they have come to trust. 3. What has been most surprising since the launch? Before we launched David Beckham Bodywear with H&M, we went through eighteen months of research and development, so it was no surprise to us that there was a gap in the market for affordable bodywear where the focus was on fit, quality and comfort. What has been really pleasing is that my bodywear is being worn by men of all ages, from all walks of life. I hope to be able to continue providing them with the best bodywear available for many seasons to come. 4. Tell us about the new campaign! I love the images we’ve shot for fall. Once again I’ve worked with the British photographer Alasdair McLellan who has such an amazing eye. I really enjoy being photographed by him. His images manage to make men look both classic and contemporary at the same time. For these images, we went for a tougher mood against a black background, with the images shot in a studio so that the focus is truly on the products. The images make the products feel like brand new. I’m really proud of them. 5. Except for great underwear, what are the essential pieces in your wardrobe? I have the same needs in my wardrobe as I do with my bodywear. We designed the bodywear range with the aim of creating new classics that men could come to trust. With clothing, I rely on classic pieces, like great jeans, sweaters 56 - 57
or biker jackets for when I’m off duty, or the most perfectly tailored suit when I want to look at my best. My wardrobe has evolved as the years have gone by, and I’ve learned many lessons about style along the way. 6. What are those lessons in style? I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion over the years, and have come to realise that what is most important is being true to who you are. My life has so many different facets, from being a sportsman, to a dad and a global ambassador, that I find myself in so many different situations and places around the world. It is good to be able to keep my style a constant, and know that I am always being myself. 7. What do you think are the biggest influences in fashion right now? It’s amazing how fashion now moves so fast, with social media and the Internet. It’s great that fashion is now truly global, and that the whole world can share influences with each other. It’s interesting that as a result of this, personal style has become much more important, with men especially taking much more classic pieces and giving them a contemporary twist of their own. When men talk about style, they talk about quality, and the clothes that have got longevity. 8. Do you have a style icon? I have always admired Steve McQueen who was effortless and natural in his style.

C 70 - 71
There is a very narrow bridge over a river. One day a goat was crossing this bridge and he met another goat just in the middle. There was no room for both of them to pass. Which of the following can you imagine as the most likely scenario? A. One goat willingly turned back to let the other goat pass first. B. The two goats charged against each other, and, after a few rounds of confrontation, the stronger goat forced the loser to yield. C. One goat lay down on the bridge, and the other goat walked lightly over him. D. The two goats charged against each other and both fell off the bridge and into the deep river below. E. One goat retraced its way and waited for the other goat to come over; then, instead of going over to the other side, it stayed to play and graze with its new friend. Analysis A. Courteous and flexible. You believe in rational solutions to lifeâ€™s challenges, and, to achieve that goal, you are willing to make concessions and compromises. B. You are confrontational in your approach to life. You have a thirst for power and usually take an all or nothing approach to life. You could be merciless, even though you do not always turn out to be the victor. C. You act in a way that benefits the common good. You are wise and avoid confrontation when it is not called for. While you may appear submissive to some people, in reality you have a high self-esteem that enables you to be warm-hearted. D. You hold a rather pessimistic view of human nature and are cynical about the world in general. You are weary of all the struggles and scuffles around you and generally tend to believe that things are headed in the wrong direction. You value peace of mind. E. Quite the idealist! Optimistic and upbeat, you believe that everything is possible. Generous and broad-minded, you want to enjoy life as much as you can and want to make as many friends as you can. Even though this hopelessly positive view of the world sometimes lets you down, it also does you a whole lot of good as people enjoy being around you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Why the dissatisfaction, my dear Cancernian? All is going well for you and your newly found love for action and decision should put you on the right track. There is no need to worry or stress yourself, your studies as well your personal relationships are going to change but to the better. You will discover new things about yourself as you embrace new opportunities and interests. Your newly found inner strength will open doors that were closed to you before. Set your creativity loose and enjoy the ride.
LIBRA (Sept. 24-Oct. 23) The world has always been your playground, my dear Libra and September won’t be any different.

You have always made the right decisions, be it consciously or intuitively, so don’t worry yourself over nothing. Your weakened energy is only temporary, you will regain your full vigor towards the last week of the month.
72 - 73
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 19) This September, you, my Aquarius friend, will be most fortunate. New faces, new friends and new opportunities for you to explore. Whether you will opt to pursue a new relation, reignite an old flame or re-instate your bond if you are already committed, this season is for you to grab, especially in the second half of the month. Your love interest will push you to new horizons, be it intellectually, culturally or the discovery of new travel destinations
TAURUS (Apr. 21-May 21) Prepare yourself for quite an emotionally intense period my dear Taurus. Your feelings will be heightened and you will find yourself bolder than ever, ready to take deep plunges and being immersed in emotions. Be careful not be consumed by your own fire. Impatience can lead to trouble. You will still feel challenged with your studies, but if you manage your timetable well, it will be a smooth sailing.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) It is a season to be jolly, lalala lala Leo! Yes, this September, your joyful, optimistic side will come out again enabling you to breeze through the month, enjoying every moment of it. Of course, you will be faced by some nuisances every now and then, especially from people you were not able to get rid of from your past, but they will not be able to overshadow your renewed love for life and laughter. Enjoy and rejoice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio, my shining Scorpio, the pressure you put on yourself!! With your high expectations from yourself and those around you, when will you learn to relax?

PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) This is going to be one nice September for you dear Pisces. With your ability to get things done with minimum stress, this month you will be able to optimize on your dealings with people in and outside of your circle of family and friends. One thing you have to be careful of though; do not allow your personal life interfere with your studies. Keep these two spheres separate if you do not want any future complications.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21) Dear Gemini, September is going to be pretty intense for you. Overloaded and over flooded are not over exaggerations!

New personal interests will also loom on the horizon. Keep alert.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 23) A perfectionist by nature, there is no wonder that your expectations will be high this September my dear Virgo. With your magnetism, charm and determination, you will be able to get exactly what you want. However, this might not be the case for you this month when it comes to the personal level. Emotionally, it would be wiser to manage one’s expectations and focus on what the others are looking for in you rather than what you are looking for in them. Good luck
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Confident, enthusiastic and full of ambition. That is how you will feel and how you will be perceived this September my dear Sagittarius. But be careful and don’t let your enthusiasm blind you.

Your health and safety should always come first. Stay focused on your ambitions so you may have a smooth sailing this month.
