Ooredoo- cuts 165 positions- 60 Kuwaitis Fired


Ooredon't want Kuwaiti workers

Ooredoo Kuwait has cut 165 jobs, the Gulf country's No.3 mobile operator by subscribers said on Tuesday, as its market share shrinks and profits fall.

The job losses account for about 15 percent of its workforce. According to the company's 2012 annual report - the latest available - the company employed 1,082 people.The company - 92.1 percent owned by Qatar's Ooredoo - has struggled in its home market in Kuwait following the launch of the country's third mobile operator, Viva Kuwait, in 2008 which aggressively cut prices to woo customers.

 
Ooredoo Kuwait said in a statement it had made the job cuts, which include 60 Kuwaitis, to increase efficiency, serve customers more effectively and simplify the organisation.Ooredoo Kuwait has reported a decline in profits in eight of the past 11 quarters, according to Reuters data. Its shares have fallen 12.5 percent so far this year.

The company's share of Kuwait's mobile subscribers was 31 percent as of June 30, according to the country's No.1 mobile operator Zain's earnings statement. Zain had a 36 percent share and Viva 33 percent.At the end of 2010, Ooredoo Kuwait - then known as Wataniya - had a market share of 39 percent, Zain 44 percent and Viva 17 percent, Zain's annual report shows.Ooredoo Kuwait also has operations in Tunisia and Algeria.

It must really suck when another country takes over and kicks out employees, especially Kuwaitis, Gasp! I think they are saying you people suck, in a nice way by labeling it as 'job cuts'. I have Viva and it is awful, I have only a certain amount of days to use the crdit or the phone cuts off forcing me to recharge every week even though I still have a credit balance. With Ooredoo (I hate that name- I still refer to them as Wataniya) I put 10 KD on it and used it for 6 months with no problems.

I would also suggest they bring in some good looking Qatari staff, I can be the recruiter!

Mad Stand Entertainment- Bringing excitement to Kuwait



Remember when the Wayans Brothers came to Kuwait last May? I was really surprised they were actually coming, although I didn't make it to the show I've heard it was an awesome show. I wondered how they got here and who was able to make it happen, it was Mad Stand Entertainment who made it possible. I was contacted by AF of MSE and was more than happen to do an interview and satisfy my curiosity of how it all works.
 
CIK: How long have you been bringing entertainment to Kuwait and how did it grow from an idea into reality?
 
AF: We started in 2012, the company was established to fill the lack of entertainment in Kuwait  and bring some life to Kuwait. It took some time to get ministry approval and establish our partners. After completing the red tape we scheduled our first show which was Mad Stand comedy night in May 2012 which was held in the football stadium at Kuwait University and we've held three more shows as well.
 
CIK: Why is there a six-month gap between each show?
 
AF: Unlike other countries where it is easier to produce shows, Kuwait has a lot of red tape and it takes a long time to get the approval for our shows which takes around six months to complete the process and book the entertainers.
 
CIK: How was it working with the Wayans Brothers?
 
AF: They were always making everyone laugh and were surprised at what Kuwait had to offer. We took them to local restaurants so they could get a 'taste of Kuwait' which they really enjoyed.
 
CIK: What shows will you be bringing in the future?
 
AF: Sorry, that's top secret information! he says with an evil laugh.
 
I give credit to these guys, they are trying their best to bring some excitement to the people of Kuwait and I can only imagine how difficult it is for them to bring it to us. It's easy to buy tickets and enjoy the show, does anyone ever wonder how they got here or who's behind the scenes? It takes a lot of planning and team work to make it happen. From an idea, to planning, to finding the venue, building the stages, getting permission, etc. Next time you purchase your ticket remember the hard work that was put into it and give thanks to Mad Stand Entertainment.
 
You can find out more on their website and their next comedy show Culture Shock featuring Rajiv Satyal is coming up on September 25, tickets are on sale now!
 
Check out the ticket prices and show information here....sounds like fun!

Guy skins live rabbit with his Teeth!

I found this on IG, I have no words to describe my shock and horror,he is doing it while the rabbit is alive, there's a video on his IG! This guys goes by @cannibal_q8 someone needs to report him! He also (wears speedos, an anchor choker) shows his CID because he's not scared of @mariam_alkharafi. What's really sad is the fact that his followers had increased by hundreds within 15 minutes, sickos! This is a perfect example of what happens when steroids go bad.
 
I don't know what it says
 
 As of 2:45 pm today he has 16437 followers, at 10 pm last night he had 12900, his account was brought up 2 days ago when @Mariam_alkharafi  posted about it, he only had 6600 followers? Who are these people following him?
 
UPDATE: He has removed all of the videos of him ripping apart dead animals, he's still a wack job. Now, if he could get rid of that anchor choker.........

Stray Memories- Banned book written by Abdullah Al-Busais

Kuwait has banned a book detailing the life of a Bedouin growing up in the Gulf state during the 1980s and 1990s, according to the author.

Stray Memories, written in Arabic by Kuwaiti writer Abdullah Al Busais has been published by the Arab Cultural Center in Beirut.

Busais told Arabic daily Al Hayat Kuwait’s Information Ministry censored the novel because it discussed Kuwaiti society before and after the Iraqi invasion in 1990-91 – a sensitive period in the country’s history.

On Twitter he said banning the book was “arbitrary” and mocked the ministry’s belief that its decision would prevent Kuwaitis from reading it.

KUWAIT: The Information Ministry has banned a novel titled “Stray Memories” by writer Abdullah Al-Busais published by the Arab Cultural Center in Beirut, according to Al-Hayat newspaper.
Busais told Al-Hayat that Kuwait’s information ministry banned the novel which talks about Kuwaiti society before and after the Iraq invasion.
 
He said that it discusses humanitarian relations in a society that is passing through an integral period in its history. He said the banning decision relied on a report of a committee at the information ministry.
 
He said the novel speaks about the life of a bedoon youth in Kuwait, adding “I was really surprised by the ban decision which considered the report of one person in the committee”. — Alaan

One says 'bedouin' and one says 'bedoon' so I would guess it's written by a bedoon hence the ban on it.

What the heck is this Honda advertisement?

 

I woke up to find my blog advertising for Honda? Has someone hacked my blog? WTH? Does anyone else see the background gone and replaced with some Honda car?

Well, I've identified the problem, it's a pagead2.googlesyndication.com malware or something. Now I can't seem to find a way to delete the image.

I'm thinking of making a new blog because I can't stand the fact that I can't figure out how to delete the picture. I don't even like Hondas, they could have advertised a Lambo or Phantom but a Honda, seriously?
