More than a month after fierce backlash over comments criticising new rules protecting the rights of Filipino domestic workers, which led many brands to cut ties with her, Kuwaiti influencer Sondos Al Qattan has escaped largely unscathed, promoting products to following which grew despite the controversy.

In late July, Al Qattan posted a video in which she said that Kuwait’s new laws “are like a pathetic film” and criticised the reforms for allowing Filipino domestic workers to keep their passports and take one day off a week.

In the days that followed, widespread public outrage led many brands with which she worked to cut ties with her, including Max Factor Arabia, French perfume brand M.Micalle and the UK-based Chelsea Boutique.

More than a month after the incident, however, Al Qattan has continued operating unimpeded by the scandal, with her follower count on Instagram having gone up from 2.3 million at the time of the incident to 2.4 million today.

Al Qattan celebrated the milestone on Instagram on August 2 – nearly two weeks after the story first broke – by posting a picture of herself holding a cake with a “2.4 million” topper and thanking her followers for their support. A similar message was posted on Twitter to 27,000 followers there.

Additionally, she has continued to promote products on Instagram. Last week, for example, she posted a picture noting that she visited the factory of the Poland-based Long4Lashes company in the coastal city of Sopot in the country’s East Pomerania region.

Other recent stores include ones promoting a store sending children’s school uniforms in Kuwait, coloured contact lenses, and eyeliner.

Throughout August and early September, however, critics have continued to attack the influencer on social media, posting comments criticising her opinions that sparked the criticism.

“A woman full of make-up and foundation but her heart is full of hatred, anger and bitterness,” a Twitter user recently wrote.

Another user recently wrote “hi, I hope you’re having a horrible day. Bye.”

Comments on Al Qattan’s Instagram profile remain disabled.

Despite repeated attempts, Arabian Business has been unable to reach Al Qattan for comment on the her comments and the backlash to them.

Typhoon Mangkhut has slammed into the country's northeastern coast with 174mph winds, with witnesses saying the storm's ferocious wind and blinding rain ripped off tin roof sheets and knocked out power at the start of the onslaught.

It made landfall before dawn in the coastal town of Baggao in Cagayan province on the northern tip of Luzon island, an agricultural region of flood-prone rice plains and mountain provinces often hit by landslides.

The super-Typhoon is almost twice the size of Hurricane Florence, which hit the American East Coast with wings of 90mph.

Mangkhut has sustained winds of 130mph and a storm surge of up to 23ft, thousands are being evacuated from vulnerable coastal areas before it makes landfall on Saturday.

With sustained winds of 130mph and a storm surge of up to 23ft, thousands are being evacuated from vulnerable coastal areas before it makes landfall on Saturday.

Florence is classed as a Category 2 hurricane while Mangkhut is the equivalent of a Category 5 - known as a super-typhoon in Asia.

Ministers have warned that more than 4million are at risk from the worst effects of Mangkhut, with torrential rains expected to cause landslides and flooding.

While high winds from Florence cover an area roughly 300 miles wide, the band of rain-clouds swirling around Mangkhut spans 560 miles.

This is the 15th storm to hit the Philippines - which is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world - this year alone, but is the most powerful.

Some residents - condemned to live in perpetual poverty because of repeated storm damage - were pictured reinforcing their vulnerable homes any way they could on Thursday before fleeing to safer ground.

Some placed heavy tyres on the roof to keep the corrugated metal from blowing away, others nailed wooden boards over glass windows, one man was even seen tying his roof down with rope.

The Philippines is one of the most disaster-prone countries on earth and is ravaged by an average of 20 storms per year. Mangkhut is the 15th to strike this year alone.

The deadliest on record is Super Typhoon Haiyan, which left more than 7,350 people dead or missing across the central Philippines in November 2013. 

When Haiyan made landfall it was also classed as a super-typhoon - equivalent to a Category 5 Atlantic hurricane - with sustained windspeeds were measured between 175mph and 195mph.

Mangkhut, while also an extremely powerful storm, is not expected to pack the same punch, but is predicted to cause widespread devastation.  

It was tracked on Friday about 250 miles away in the Pacific with sustained winds of 127mph and gusts of up to 158 mph, Philippine forecasters said.

With a massive rain cloud band 560 miles wide, combined with seasonal monsoon rains, the typhoon could bring intense rains that could set off landslides and flash floods, the forecasters said.

Storm warnings have been raised in 25 provinces across the main northern island of Luzon, restricting sea and air travel.

After the Philippines, the Hong Kong Observatory predicts Mangkhut will plow into the Chinese mainland early on Monday morning south of Hong Kong and north of the island province of Hainan.

Though it will weaken from a super typhoon to a severe typhoon, it will still be packing sustained winds of 109mph.

The observatory warned of rough seas and frequent heavy squalls, urging residents of the densely populated financial hub to 'take suitable precautions and pay close attention to the latest information' on the storm.

The gambling enclave of Macau, next door to Hong Kong, suffered catastrophic flooding during Typhoon Hato last August that left 10 dead and led to accusations of corruption and incompetence at its meteorological office.

On the Chinese mainland, the three southern provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan are coordinating preparations, including suspending transport and moving people to shelter inland, the national meteorological agency reported.

Guangdong, China's manufacturing hub, has set up 3,777 shelters, while more than 100,000 residents and tourists have been moved to safety or sent home.

The province has recalled more than 36,000 fishing boats to port, while train services between the cities of Zhanjiang and Maoming have been suspended and all ferry services between the Guangdong and Hainan have been put on hold.

Fujian province to the north of Guangdong is also closing beaches and tourist sites and preparing other measures depending on conditions, the agency reported.

Philippine Office of Civil Defence chief Ricardo Jalad told an emergency meeting led by President Rodrigo Duterte that about 4.2 million people in Cagayan, nearby Isabela province and outlying regions are vulnerable to the most destructive effects near the typhoon's 77-mile-wide eye.

Nearly 48,000 houses in those high-risk areas are made of light materials and vulnerable to Mangkhut's ferocious winds.

Across the north on Thursday, residents covered glass windows with wooden boards, strengthened houses with rope and braces and moved fishing boats to safety.

Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba said by telephone that evacuations of residents from risky coastal villages and island municipalities north of the rice-and corn-producing province of 1.2 million people have started and school classes at all levels have been cancelled.

'The weather here is still good but we're moving them now because it's very important that when it comes, people will be away from peril,' Mr Mamba said.

A change in the typhoon's track prompted authorities to rapidly reassess where to redeploy emergency teams and supplies, Mr Mamba said.

Mr Duterte asked Cabinet officials from the north to help oversee disaster-response work if needed, and told reporters it was too early to consider seeking foreign aid.

'It would depend on the severity of the crisis,' Mr Duterte said. 'If it flattens everything, maybe we need to have some help.'

The typhoon is approaching at the start of the rice and corn harvesting season in Cagayan, a major agricultural producer, and farmers were scrambling to save what they could of their crops, Mr Mamba said. 

The threat to agriculture comes as the Philippines tries to cope with rice shortages.

Officials said other northern provinces started evacuating residents on Thursday from high-risk areas, including in northern mountain provinces prone to landslides.

Mr Duterte cancelled his appearance at a missile test firing aboard a navy ship off northern Bataan province due to the approaching typhoon.

On Guam, where Mangkhut already passed, residents dealt with flooded streets, downed trees and widespread power outages. 

Government agencies were conducting damage assessments and clearing roads, according to the Pacific Daily News.

About 80 per cent of the US territory was without power but it was restored by Thursday morning.

Mangkhut, a Thai word for the mangosteen fruit, is the 15th storm this year to batter the Philippines, which is hit by about 20 a year and is considered one of the world's most disaster-prone countries.

Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,300 people dead or missing and displaced over five million in the central Philippines in 2013.

PHILIPPINES BRACES FOR 'VERY DESTRUCTIVE' TYPHOON

Philippine authorities evacuated more areas on Friday and warned an estimated 5.2 million people in the path of a “very destructive” typhoon to stay indoors, as the country braced for heavy rain and damage to infrastructure and crops.

Super Typhoon Mangkhut is expected to barrel through the northernmost tip of the Philippines Saturday morning, carrying 205 kph wind speeds, and gusts of up to 255 kph, that it has maintained since it struck Micronesia earlier in the week.

More than 9,000 people have been moved to temporary shelters as Mangkhut, locally known as Ompong, makes its way towards the rice- and corn-producing provinces of Cagayan and Isabela where it is forecast to make landfall overnight. Disaster officials warned that tens of thousands more may need to be moved and weather forecasters warned of storm surges as high as six metres in coastal villages in the typhoon’s path. Second and third contingents of rescue teams were being prepared, in case first-responders get into trouble themselves.

“My appeal is that we need to heed the advice of the authorities. Stay indoors,” said presidential adviser Francis Tolentino, the government’s disaster response coordinator.

The storm further picked up speed and was about 340 km east of the Philippines late afternoon on Friday. Video posted on social media by Cagayan residents showed trees being whipped by fierce winds under dark grey skies as rain lashed down on buildings.

HELP SOUGHT

Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba said he expects widespread damage to crops and infrastructure in his province, and said help would be needed to rebuild.

“Last time we had a super typhoon, there were 14,000-plus of totally destroyed houses and about 40,000-plus of partially destroyed houses,” he told news channel ANC.

 

“We expect this kind of damage with a super typhoon like this and so we would ask the assistance of the national government and even the private sector.”

The capital, Manila, and more than three dozen northern and central provinces have been placed under storm warning signals. Classes have been suspended and government offices shut early in more than 600 places, while military, medical and emergency response teams were put on stand by.

The coastguard said about 5,000 passengers were stranded at several ports by the impending storm, which will head on towards Hong Kong, China and Vietnam.

Mangkhut’s peak winds are stronger than those of Hurricane Florence, which has left more than 630,000 homes and businesses without power and is expected to drop eight months of rain on the Carolinas in the United States in two or three days.

“The concerns here are landslides and infrastructure being washed away,” said Junie Cua, governor of Quirino province on the main island of Luzon.

Authorities are taking extra precautions as they draw comparison with Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated central areas of the archipelago in 2013, and killed 6,300 people, many in storm surges that reached as high as eight metres.

But weather forecasters said Mangkhut’s wind speed was unlikely to accelerate further from the current 205 kph and reach Haiyan’s 240 kph. Northern Luzon is also less densely populated.

Mangkhut might slightly weaken after landfall but could still be “very destructive”, said Rene Paciente, assistant chief at the weather bureau.

Crop damage in a worst-case scenario could reach about 157,000 tonnes of paddy rice and about 257,000 tonnes of corn, worth 13.5 billion pesos ($250 million), the agriculture ministry said.

That could result in tightness in the domestic rice supplies at a time when retail prices are already high, compounding worries about inflation.

More than 4 million people live in areas at most risk from the storm, which the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii categorized as a super typhoon.

Philippine authorities began evacuating thousands of people Thursday from the path of the most powerful typhoon this year, closing schools, readying bulldozers for landslides and placing rescuers and troops on full alert in the country's north.

More than 4 million people live in areas at most risk from the storm, which the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii categorized as a super typhoon with powerful winds and gusts.

Typhoon Mangkhut could hit northeastern Cagayan province on Saturday. It was tracked on Thursday about 450 miles away in the Pacific with sustained winds of 127 miles per hour and gusts of up to 158 mph, Philippine forecasters said.

According to Deanon, she has no other information, except from the woman’s name which is Johann. She is really worried on the woman and wanted to help her as much as possible. However, Deanon do not know where to report the incident and decided to post the images online, hoping that it will reach the designated government agency for immediate help.

Deanon is living in front of the apartment where the woman is currently situated. The address is Block 5, St 13, Surra, Kuwait.

Johann has no mobile number or any relatives to reach on. But still according to Deanon, the woman already wants to go back to the Philippines despite being in Kuwait only for 6 months.

Netizens were quick to respond and tagged some of the Facebook page of government agencies.

OFW MISSING FOR MORE THAN ONE YEAR IN KUWAIT

An overseas Filipina worker is missing in Kuwait for 18 months, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs.

 timthumb.jpg

Ronalyn Yonting Lawagan, a household service worker, last contacted her family in February 2017 after she was reported to have ran away from her Kuwaiti employer.

Chargé d’Affaires Mohammad Nordin Pendosina Lomondot said the Embassy requested the assistance of Kuwaiti authorities in April 2018 when her recruiter reported her disappearance.

Lawagan is suspected to still be in Kuwait as no travel records showed that she exited the country; she also did not show up in the Embassy’s search in prisons and hospitals.

“We are requesting our kababayan who may know where Ronalyn is to immediately inform us so we can assist her,” Chargé d’Affaires Lomondot said.

WINDOWS 10 users testing the latest version of the software have been issued a warning against downloading Google Chrome, it has emerged.

 Windows 10 warning for Google Chrome

Microsoft recently declared the newest iteration of Windows 10 will arrive in the duly named "Windows 10 October 2018 Update".

The new version promises to introduce radical changes to the software that will allow users to be more productive than ever.

Microsoft's "new clipboard experience" debuts in the update that lets Windows 10 fans to harness the power of cloud technology to seamlessly copy and paste between different devices.

 

Items can also be pinned to their clipboard, meaning they are accessible quickly and easily at all times.

 

Discussing the new feature, Microsoft stated: "Copy paste – it’s something we all do, probably multiple times a day.

"But what do you do if you need to copy the same few things again and again? How do you copy content across your devices?

"We’re addressing that and taking the clipboard to the next level – simply press WIN+V and you’ll be presented with our brand-new clipboard experience!"

But it appears the latest version of Windows 10 will also issue warnings against downloading Google Chrome and other browsers.

 

One tester named Sean Hoffman posted a message that was shown to him when trying to download Firefox, spotted by The Verge.

It read: "You already have Microsoft Edge - the safer, faster browser for Windows 10."

At the bottom of the popup users do have the option to turn off the setting, meaning it should no longer appear when a rival browser to Microsoft Edge is being installed or opened.

While such a warning is currently being displayed in test builds of the forthcoming software, it is currently unclear if Microsoft will opt to introduce similar popups when the Windows 10 October 2018 update presumably arrives next month.

 

Windows Insiders are set to receive the new update first.

The Windows 10 Insider programme is a scheme fans can sign up to - it gives access to early builds of Microsoft's software.

However, this can come at the expense of more prominent bugs as the operating system is not as stable.

In addition to bringing a new clipboard mode, the File Explorer application is set to receive a new Dark Theme in the full roll out.

 Windows 10

Microsoft recently said being able to turn the lights off on the software was a "top request" from Windows 10 users.

It commented: "We’re excited to announce that Dark Theme support for File Explorer is ready for the next major release of Windows."Adding a dark theme to File Explorer has long been a top Insider request. Some users find that a dark theme is easier on the eyes.

"Others simply like the fresh, new look. But while dark mode has been available in Windows for some time, it hasn’t applied to File Explorer, until now."

Kuwait mosque attack compensation case rejected

Court rules no legal ground for financial claims against government

Manama: Kuwait’s Cassation Court has overturned a ruling by the Court of Appeals ordering the government to compensate financially the victims of Al Sadiq Mosque suicide bombing three years ago.

The Court of Appeals had ruled a compensation of KD40,000 for the victims, claiming responsibilities of government agencies tasked with ensuring security and banning the smuggling of explosives into the country.

 Image result for kuwait bombed mosque

However, the government rejected the claims and took the case to the Court of Cassation, which on Monday said there was no legal ground to demand financial compensation for damages resulting from terror crimes that were perpetrated by elements not related to the government.

According to the judges, there was no neglect by the government and the state is committed to deploying security measures, but not to achieving results.

Additionally, the specific act of terrorism occurred outside the will of the state authorities, including the Ministry of the Interior, and could not be anticipated at that time, they said on Monday.

The Cassation Court is the highest court in the country and its rulings cannot be appealed or challenged.

The attack on the Shiite mosque on June 26, 2015, caused the death of 27 worshippers and the injury of 227.

The bomber, Fahd Sulaiman Abdul Mohsen Al Gabbaa, a Saudi national who had never left his country, arrived on a flight to Kuwait airport at dawn on Friday and blew himself up hours later inside the mosque during the prayers.

The attack failed to divide Kuwaitis alongside sectarian or ideological lines and resulted in an impressive show of unity and mutual support.

One year later, Kuwait’s Emir Shaikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah performed noon prayers in the renovated Al Sadiq Mosque.

The ruler, who had visited the mosque hours after the terrorist attack, also met relatives of those killed and wounded in the tragic attack.

“Our national unity is the unassailable fence that safeguards security,” Shaikh Sabah told them. “The patriotic spirit manifested by the people of Kuwait and their love, devotion and allegiance to their homeland would fend off all criminal and terrorist acts.”

Kuwait charged 29 people — seven Kuwaitis, five Saudis, three Pakistanis, 13 stateless people and another person at large — with the bombing of the mosque. Five of the suspects were tried in absentia.

The public prosecutor demanded the death penalty for 11 suspects, but after a series of trial sessions that went up to the Cassation Court, only six were sentenced to death.

Delay in winter season this year

Meteorological expert Essa Ramadan says delay in the winter season can be expected this year, reports Al-Shahed daily. During an interview on Al-Shahed TV, he indicated that humidity will reduce in the coming days. Ramadan stressed the significance of planting trees in order to reduce the temperatures, adding that this will increase rainfalls due to the increase in oxygen levels. He said the “Green Belt” represented by planting trees along the Kuwaiti borders will turn Jahra into “Switzerland”.

Ramadan said Kuwait may not witness heavy rains this winter or any time before the year 2027. He warned about an environmental disaster that the world could face in 2080 due to expected increase in the temperatures by five degrees Centigrade, stressing the need to take relevant procedures for minimizing the negative effects of such catastrophe.
