Qatar could be in danger of losing the right to host the Fifa World Cup in 2022 after a ‘risk report’ revealed that private discussions have questioned ‘whether or not the tournament will take place as planned’.

Management company Cornerstone Global have conducted a report to evaluate the extent in which the political situation in the region could affect football’s showpiece event.

The report, titled ‘’Qatar in focus: Is the Fifa World Cup 2022 in danger?’, has been obtained by the BBC and reveals that ‘tournament insiders and regional experts have both stated to us that it is far from certain Doha will actually host the tournament’.

A statement from Qatar 2022’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has challenged the legitimacy and motive of the report, insisting that “there is absolutely no risk to the future of the first World Cup in the Middle East”, while accusing the report’s authors of having “affiliation to the countries blockading Qatar”.

qaar, which has most of the latest technologies for treating cancer, can claim treatment results comparable to the outcomes in western countries regarding survival rate, a top official of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has told Gulf Times.
“As a recent article in the Lancet – a leading international medical journal; CONCORD-2 Study – demonstrated, the outcomes of the Stem Cell Transplant Programme, as measured by the 100 day post-transplant survival rates of 100% are meeting internationally set benchmarks. The patients’ experience is remarkably positive,” said Prof Dr K R Alexander Knuth, medical director and CEO, National Center for Cancer Care & Research (NCCCR), HMC.
Dr Knuth maintained that HMC offers full range of evidence based cancer treatments which are delivered by specialists in each type of cancer.
“We have introduced a number of advanced technologies. They include: Minimally invasive and robotic surgery; Adaptive Brachytherapy; MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound; CyberKnife; Breast Care Clinic and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation,” he explained.
“In 2015, the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Unit performed its first blood stem cell transplant. To date, 24 patients have received blood stem cell transplants with an excellent outcome. All patients are doing well. This is an example of highly specialised medicine and represents the start of the cellular therapy programme for the treatment of cancer,” said Dr Knuth.
Dr Knuth said that for the minimally invasive and robotic surgery, expert surgeons who are specially trained using the latest technology, provide a range of sophisticated and minimally invasive techniques such as those available for some types of urological cancer or cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.
“The Department of Radiation Oncology at NCCCR has introduced a sophisticated technique called Magnetic Resonance Image Guided Adaptive Brachytherapy which is used for the treatment of patients with cervical cancer. This evidence-based treatment technique can significantly improve the results of treatment in patients with inoperable cervical cancer,” said Dr Knuth.
“The Department of Radiation Oncology has also introduced MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound for the treatment of cancer that has spread to the bones. The NCCCR is the first hospital in the GCC region and one of only 17 centres globally with the capacity to perform these treatments under MRI guidance,” he said.
According to the official, CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system which utilises a robotic system that delivers high-dose radiation therapy with extreme precision providing patients with a pain-free, non-surgical option of treatment. It also offers a new treatment option for patients with inoperable or surgically complex tumours.
“The Breast Care Clinic at NCCCR is a multidisciplinary specialised service for rapid clinical examination, breast imaging and a core biopsy if a lump is found or confirmed. This is a quick, high quality service for detecting early breast disease and providing a personalised plan of care for patients,” added the official.

How Qatar is seducing Italy http://doha.biz/2017/10/08/qatar-seducing-italy/ http://doha.biz/2017/10/08/qatar-seducing-italy/#respond Sun, 08 Oct 2017 04:38:24 +0000 http://doha.biz/?p=59618 Until very recently, nobody living in the small village of Cingoli, in the middle of the Appennine mountains of central Italy knew where Qatar was, or even what it is.

Until very recently, nobody living in the small village of Cingoli, in the middle of the Appennine mountains of central Italy knew where Qatar was, or even what it is. But the local people learnt quickly enough when a delegation from the Gulf state, headed by ambassador Abdulaziz Bin Ahmed Al Malki, donated five million euros (Dh21.5 million) a couple of months ago to build a brand-new school in Macerata, the regional capital.

A year ago, the Marche region suffered a severe earthquake. There is still much rebuilding to be done. To struggling provincial communities like Cingoli the cash from Qatar was like gold raining down from the heavens.

Qatar has been most generous to Italy lately. In Sardinia, where Qatar bought the famous Costa Smeralda resort from American-Lebanese investor Tom Barrack, the country is committed to building a new hospital for the community of Olbia. Using funds from Qatari charity organisations, Doha is also financing the construction of several mosques across Italy.

In June, Peninsula Capital, a private equity fund managed by Spanish bankers and believed to be financed by Qatar, bought a majority stake in NTV, a privately-owned rail company which operates high-speed trains in Italy.

All this fresh activity and investment comes amid Qatar’s recent isolation by its neighbours over its support of extremist groups. The timing cannot be coincidental. Economic and political ties between Italy and Qatar date back to 2012 when the Qatari investment group Mayhoola acquired Valentino, the couture fashion house. Since then Qatar has kept on acquiring assets in Italy, especially hotels and leisure-related real estate.

The Peninsula
An array of colourful shows at dozens of indoor and outdoor venues offered quality entertainment to a large number of visitors on the second day of Eid Al Adha, including tourists from Kuwait, Oman and Turkey.

Eid festivities were held with fervour from Al Wakrah Sports Club Stadium to Katara Cultural Village and several children-specific attractions drew families to the Summer Entertainment City and various malls across the country.

At Katara, visitors were entertained with a range of amusement activities, especially shadow performances inspired by the region’s history and heritage. Theatre performances based on the ‘Tales of the Arabian Nights’ were the main attraction.

The shadow theatre performances are based on the Arabian tales, the history of the ‘Roman Empire’, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and the all-time favourite, ‘Aladdin’.

Apart from shadow performances, live acrobatic shows were staged. The organisers also presented gifts to children.
The Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs organised ‘Eid Al Adha Celebrations for Communities’ at Asian Town where Indian and Bangladeshi artistes staged a range of musical and cultural shows.

Pakistani expatriates, particularly migrant workers, spent the second day of Eid at the Al Wakrah Sports Club Stadium watching performances of Pakistani showbiz stars Shahid Ali Khan, Khwaja Masoud, Nadiya Gul, Deepa and Mariya Khan.

Meanwhile, visitors arriving from Kuwait, Oman and Turkey to celebrate Eid Al Adha in Qatar were treated to a special reception at Hamad International Airport.

Saif Al Kuwari, Director of PR and Communication at Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA), commented, “Eid is about creating and sharing memorable moments with family, neighbours and friends, and we are delighted to uphold the tradition once again this Eid by welcoming our brothers and sisters from Oman, Kuwait and Turkey at Hamad International Airport.”

He added: “We are particularly excited to have them join us for the fun and joyful season that coincides with the last week of Qatar Summer Festival, which boasts a wide variety of attractive hospitality, entertainment and retail options throughout the country.”
