The world most expensive Christmas tree

The luxury Emirates Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi displays a tree decorated with $11 million of jewellery. IS THERE ANY END TO THE MADNESS OF THESE PEOPLE ???

Abu Dhabi Yacht Show 25 au 27 fevrier 2010 2010 Abu Dhabi Yacht Show
Abu Dhabi, 15 December, 2009. The 2nd edition of the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (ADYS), the Middle Easts only annual exhibition devoted to the superyacht and megayacht sectors, is to be staged at the spectacular Yas Marina, which was the glittering backdrop to this years inaugural Formula 1™Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
With only several months remaining until the second Abu Dhabi Yacht Show, news that this elite event will move to the magnificent Yas Marina, on Yas Island, will allow us to showcase the truly world-class leisure marine infrastructure now being developed throughout our emirate. Yas Island is an apt host for the show as it will eventually house multiple marinas, said His Excellency Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), headline sponsor of Abu Dhabi Yacht Show and Chairman of ADNEC.
The move to Yas Marina, which has deep berthing facilities and significant available berthing slots, was prompted by a need for a vastly expanded dockside venue that can accommodate a bigger edition of the ADYS.
Luxury yacht owners who came to watch the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix recently can attest to the world-class berthing facilities of Yas Marina; and we expect first-time exhibitors and guests to be similarly impressed. Ideally suited to accommodate super and mega yachts, Yas Marina likewise boasts striking aesthetics, first rate support services and a luxurious cosmopolitan vibe surrounding the bigger Yas Island
development of which the marina is a strategic part, said Franck Dailles, IYG Group Director.
Dailles has confirmed that the new venue is more than adequately equipped to cope with the increased number of exhibitors and yacht entries the 2010 show, which will run from February 25-27, has attracted.
In addition, having considerably enhanced the shows programme, we believe Yas Marinas first-class amenities and facilities will create an inspirational atmosphere to promote meetings, negotiations and overall interaction between exhibition guests, exhibitors, visitors and potential buyers.
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Bin Al Nayhan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, ADYS is expected to further cement Abu Dhabis burgeoning reputation as a world-class yachting destination.
Many around the world are now familiar with Yas Marina from the breathtaking television shots and stills photography which circulated globally during the highly successful inaugural Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The images of fabulous yachts, from which owners, charterers and their guests enjoyed the race action, left lasting, and emphatic impressions and did much to assist the emirates SuperYacht hub aspirations. The fleet of the worlds best SuperYachts expected to attend the yacht show will no doubt realise an equally inspiring vista and again provide a visual image of an international maritime destination in the making, Al Nahyan said.
Yas Island is one of the most highly-prized projects within the portfolio of Aldar Properties, one of Abu Dhabis leading developers. Located strategically off the city of Abu Dhabi, Yas Island is within driving distance of the capital and nearby Dubai, and will feature numerous leisure and recreation attractions, such as a racing circuit, signature hotels, theme parks, marinas, and a golf course, among other world-class facilities.
Covering 115,000 square metres, Yas Marina has 143 berths and can house vessels from 15 metres to 75 metres. Even larger boats those upwards of 130metres can be berthed in facilities alongside Yas Yacht Club, outside the Marina.
Yas Marina welcomed its first vessel the Royal Yacht, MY Rabdan in October, which dropped anchor a few weeks prior to the first Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The marina hosted an impressive flotilla of superyachts at the start of November during the motor racing extravaganza and received an exceptionally positive response to its outstanding facilities.
This year, we have also revised the shows layout to ensure all exhibitors have a waterfront presence, a format that will put the spotlight even more on the true stars of the show the stunning super and megayachts that will be anchored at Yas Marina exclusively for the event, added Dailles.

there is no end to the madness Now I understand what SHEIKH IMRAN HOSEIN means when he say’s the Ulimah are eating Halwaa. Spot on again as these Sheep Herders have spent enough to feed a small village for a year on something with absolutely no association to Islam or True Christianity what so ever. And the Ulimah are eating Halwaa, they dare not speak, otherwise it will be an end to their Halwaa

Security in the Gulf

The Manama talks are taking place in Bahrain to discuss security in the Gulf with one of the big issues being the involvement of foreign powers, particularly when it comes to Iran. Can those powers help establish security, or should Gulf countries work it out on their own - remembering the mistrust that has been revealed by WikiLeaks?
