Dar Al-Athar Al-Islamiyyah holds some very interesting events every month and the latest I attended was a CPR workshop at the Amricani Cultural Center. The workshop was instructed by Lieutenant Hashem Al-Refai from the Kuwait National Guard. I’ve wanted to learn CPR for so long and I finally got the chance to! I must say it turned out to be more complicated than I thought. Many details that would be a real challenge to remember during an emergency situation. But once you get to practice the instructions you’d get a better hang of it.
Lt. Al-Refai did a great job explaining everything and being really helpful with everybody’s questions. He even gladly gave me his number to publish it here for anyone who is interested in such a workshop. Scroll to the bottom of the post for details!
Much respect to him and the other helpful members of the National Guard and US Army.
Explaining different CPR techniques for each of adults, children, and infants.
Then learning to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). It’s the device we see in all the medical series, the one used to give an electric charge to the heart. The National Guard are working on making this device available in all public places.
It’s always great to learn something useful and this really made my day a productive one.
If I’m not mistaken this isn’t the first CPR workshop fr omDAI and hopefully not the last. If you’re interested you can follow them on Facebookto get their updates.
I was also informed by Lt. Hashem Al-Refai that the Department of Emergency Medical Services gives a more extensive workshop that includes not only CPR, but several other emergency procedures like ones for bleeding and choking. The workshop is for one day only – 5 hours, and you get a certificate out of it. They give both groups and individuals. You can contact Lt. Refai to manage a workshop for your group, or if you’re an individual you can ask for details about any upcoming workshops.
A new campus for the Kuwait Maastricht Business School is currently under construction and is designed by KEO, the same designers behind the GUST campus. The 15,000 sq m site is located near a major highway South of Kuwait. The exact location hasn’t been revealed yet.
The new campus will accommodate 600 students seeking a professional MBA degree. Finish date wasn’t revealed either.
Here’s a cool infographic showing which fruits are from which season. Of course everybody knows about mangos, Alphonso mangos to be exact. Yeah I see you on Instagram, diving into these yellow things like swimmers at the Olympics 😛 Me included of course.
Never knew winter was the season for dates though!
