T o effect change women them selves have to stop colluding as well as men not acting in a predatory and bullish manner.

Along with water this is critical and a very wise move from the very wise leader
Even more wise as recycling and use of ‘ugly’ produce is the way forward

New ministers of state for artificial intelligence and food security, with a continuing emphasis on youth, are among the highlights of a reshuffle of the UAE Cabinet announced on Thursday.

The changes, said Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, were about the science and technology of the future.

One of the most senior appointments saw Noura Al Kaabi move as Minister of State for the Federal National Council to become Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development. “Her cultural and media experience will complement Sheikh Nahyan’s career in the Ministry,” Sheikh Mohammed said.

Sheikh Nayhan bin Mubarak, the previous Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development, has become Minister of State for Tolerance. Sheikh Mohammed called Sheikh Nahyan “the face of the UAE, Arabs and international… and he is a great asset to the UAE’s soft power”.

“Brother Nahyan bin Mubarak in his great social and community strength… and his wide international relationships… and his love for all community aspects is more than capable of rooting tolerance in the UAE and the region,” he said.

Sheikh Mohammed thanked Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, who previously held the post, saying she had represented the UAE well at international events and represented Arab women in the finest way.

He also thanked Saqr Ghobash, the former Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, who oversaw many of the country’s labour reforms. For his four decades of service for his country, and his “dedication and sincere love for the people. You have the appreciation of the Emirati people,” Sheikh Mohammed said.

Fresh faces in the Cabinet include Oman bin Sultan Al Olama, 27, as the first Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence. The appointment comes just two days after Sheikh Mohammed announced the UAE Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, a major initiative in the UAE Centennial 2071 objectives.

Sheikh Mohammed said: “The Emirati family is the biggest guarantee in social cohesion and I wish her all the best.”

The post of Minister of Community Development was previously held by Najla Mohammed Al Awar, whom Sheikh Mohammed thanked for her service to the country.

Ahmed Belhoul, Minister of State for Higher Education, has had his portfolio expanded to include Advanced Skills to ensure lifelong learning among the country’s young people. He was also named chair of the Federal Authority for Human Resources.

Mr Belhoul will be responsible for equipping the UAE’s young people with skills for the future, said Sheikh Mohammed.

Nasser bin Thani Al Hameli was appointed Minister of Human Resources and Emiratisation, with Sheikh Mohammed observing that the UAE’s efforts to employ nationals in key roles still had some way to go, and noting that Mr Al Hameli would help in that regard.

Sometimes also called an avocado pear, the avocado is the fruit of the Persea Americana tree, which is native to the subtropical regions of the American continent. It has green, buttery flesh and a large central stone. In Britain, two main avocado varieties are available: Hass and Fuerte. The Hass variety has a knobbly purple-black exterior and a creamy-textured, richly flavoured interior; the Fuerte variety has a smooth green skin. Avocados are very high in both protein and oil. The avocado has the highest protein and oil content of any fruit. In fact, this soft-fleshed fruit can contain up to 30 per cent fat. Don’t let the high fat content put you off, though; avocados contain only monounsaturated fat, which may help to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Buyer’s guide
These days, as well as growing throughout Central and South America, the avocado also thrives in parts of Africa, Australia, Israel and the Canaries. Look for avocadoes that have unblemished skins with no soft spots, which suggest bruising. They are ready to eat when the flesh yields slightly when pressed with the thumb.
Extra virgin avocado oil is now widely available in UK supermarkets. Use it as you would olive oil, for roasting and drizzling over salads; or serve it as a dip with crusty bread.
Preparation
When it comes to cooking, the Mexican dip called guacamole is without a doubt the best-known avocado dish. But Mexicans use avocados in a wide array of other dishes, from ceviche to tacos. In some parts of Mexico, avocado leaves are toasted and ground to imbue dishes with an anise flavour. In the Philippines, savoury-sweet avocado ice cream is popular.
Avocados must be allowed to ripen in a warm place before they’re used; speed up the process by wrapping them in brown paper. To test ripeness, press the skin lightly with your thumb. If it feels slightly yielding, it’s ready to eat. Cut lengthways down to the stone and twist to separate the two halves. Pierce the stone carefully with a knife to embed the knife’s tip, then pull the stone out.
The yellow-green flesh should come away from the skin easily, but it will go brown when exposed to air, so always prepare avocados just before serving or drench in lemon juice to prevent the browning. The trick is to combine avocado with ingredients that will enhance its nuttiness but cut back on its richness. Savour the pale flesh for breakfast or lunch by crushing it on toasted sourdough bread along with a squeeze of lime juice, sea salt and pepper. Or make it into a coarse salsa with tomatoes, onion, chilli, lime and coriander to accompany grilled meats. Alternatively, toss the creamy wedges gently in a salad with green leaves, crabmeat, spring onions and a little lemon.

durian and its smell genes and the intimate history

Singapore scientists reveal origins of durian’s pungent aroma

The team was driven by a ‘strong scientific curiosity’ and of course, their love for durians
One of nature’s smelliest secrets may have been revealed, thanks to a dedicated team of durian-loving scientists in Singapore.
Researchers have found an odour gene which gives the thorny fruit its notoriously pungent scent.
The discovery meant the possibility of creating “odourless or milder-tasting” fruits in future, the scientists said.
It has sparked mixed feelings from durian aficionados, who worship its signature rank smell.
“A durian without its smell is nothing but an empty shell with no essence,” wrote Singaporean Richie Liang on Facebook, who also compared “a durian without its unique smell” to “a human being who has lost his or her soul”.

Year of the durian
After three years of research, privately funded by a group of anonymous durian lovers, the five-man team of cancer scientists now have a complete genetic map of the fruit, a world first.
Their findings were published in academic journal Nature Genetics.
“Our analysis revealed that volatile sulphur production is turbocharged in durians, which fits with many people’s opinions that durian smell has a ‘sulphury’ aspect,” said geneticist Patrick Tan, who co-led the study.
The researchers said the durian’s distinctive odour served an important purpose to it in the wild: helping to attract animals to eat it and disperse its seeds.

A possible reason for durian’s smell? To attract animals in the wild
Grown in many countries across tropical South East Asia, the spiky, stinky durian is an acquired taste.
The fruit is loved and loathed in equal measure. Eating durian is banned in many outdoor spaces throughout Singapore and carrying it is prohibited on public transport because of its smell.
But its fans remain fiercely protective over retaining its controversial scent.

“What’s durian if it’s odourless and tasteless? Yuck,” said Manfred Man, adding that he would “never mess with nature”.
Jason Lim saw the potential in the durian discovery and shared his hope for new hybrid signature smells. “I wish someone would create avocado with durian smell. Durian fans will know what I am talking about.”
Odours aside, the durian’s ancestry was also revealed, believed to be dating back an estimated 65m years to the cacao plant.
Zachary Tay hilariously summed up this revelation: “So we’re basically eating chocolate.”
