DOHA: In the framework of implementing Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani’s vision of promoting the human development sector by supporting and attracting Qatari talent in various fields, Prime Minister and Interior Minister H E Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani has issued directives to increase the allowances of students in the “Tomouh” programme (students of the Faculty of Education) to encourage Qatari students, as well as Qatari women’s children, carriers of Qatari documents, and Qatar-born to join the programme.

According to the directives, Qatari male and female students’ allowances for this program have been announced in various categories. Students with major in English or Arabic Language, Mathematics and Science will  receive an allowance of QR10,000 per month.

Student in other disciplines are to receive an allowance of QR8,000 per month, in addition to all the allowances and other benefits specified by the government scholarship program, such as the one time QR5,000 computer allowance, and the QR5,000 books allowance for each academic year.

As for non-Qatari children of Qatari women, Qatari document holders and Qatar-born students, tuition fees of “Tomouh” Programme students will be paid for the whole scholarship term, in addition to QR3,000 per month in stead of QR3,000 per semester.

The directives of Prime Minister and Interior Minister aim to support the “Tomouh” program, and make it attractive not only to Qatari but to other categories specified in the directives.

The “Tomouh” Programme is running under the supervision of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in partnership with the College of Education at Qatar University and in coordination with the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs.

In addition, the decision to increase the allowances of the “Tomouh” programme students aims to encourage Qataris as well as other categories to major in educational specialities, and thus meet the needs of the labor market in the fields of education, and Qatarize teaching staff in state schools, which will be reflected positively on the entire educational process.

The Ministry of Education and Higher Education launched the “Tomouh” programme years ago, to meet the needs of government educational institutions of teachers and educators.

“Tomouh” is part of the state’s efforts to invest in human resources and build national capacities that lead the educational work, especially in the field of teaching.

The programme is part of an integrated system to elevate the academic and professional level of teachers and to prepare them according to national professional and national curriculum standards, which will necessarily reflect the quality of educational outputs in schools, thus contribute to the achievement of Qatar National Vision 2030.

Trump says ready to meet Iranian leaders without preconditions

Trump says ready to meet Iranian leaders without preconditions

US President Donald Trump said on Monday he’s willing to meet with Iranian leaders without preconditions amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.

“It’s good for the country, good for them, good for us and good for the world. No preconditions. If they want to meet, I’ll meet,” Trump said at a joint press conference with the Italian prime minister.

“And I’m ready to meet any time they want to. And I don’t do that from strength or from weakness. I think it’s an appropriate thing to do,” he said.

Trump’s openness to a dialogue with Iran comes a week after he issued an all-caps warning to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that he would face “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered” if he threatened the US.

His tweet came in response to Rouhani’s comments to Iranian diplomats that war with Iran is “the mother of all wars.” He also left the door open to peace talks, saying peace with Iran is “the mother of all peace.”

It’s not clear whether Iran would accept any proposed meeting, particularly given the threats the US president has issued. In July, Rouhani’s Chief of Staff, Mahmoud Vaezi, said that Trump had asked eight times for a meeting with Rouhani, and was rejected each time.

Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in May after failing to marshal international support for a tougher approach to the Middle Eastern country. The European Union is trying to salvage the accord, which placed limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

“If we could work something out that’s meaningful, not the waste of paper that the other deal was, I would certainly be willing to meet,” Trump said, pointing out that it would be good for the United States, Iran and the world.

In pulling out of the agreement, the Trump administration restored wide-ranging sanctions on Iran. His administration is pushing oil buyers to stop purchasing crude from Iran, the world’s fifth largest oil producer, by Nov. 4.

The ultimatum — cut Iranian crude imports to zero or face US sanctions — has ratcheted up tension in recent weeks. Iran has threatened to shut down the world’s busiest sea lane for oil shipments.

Trump cited his administration’s negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Russian leader Vladimir Putin as examples of his successful bilateral negotiations.

“As you know, with Chairman Kim we haven’t had a missile fired in nine months, we got our prisoners back, so many things have happened so positive,” the president said. Trump said his summit with Putin was a “great meeting in terms of the future.”

First Ultra Long Range A350 XWB rolls out of paintshop

Singapore Airlines Ultra Long Range A350 XWB paint shop rollout 1

The first Ultra Long Range Airbus A350 XWB to be delivered to launch customer Singapore Airlines has rolled out of the paintshop in the carrier’s distinctive livery. Now at an advanced stage of production, the aircraft will undergo further testing before being delivered to the airline in the coming months.

Singapore Airlines has ordered seven A350-900 Ultra Long Range aircraft, and all of them are in various stages of assembly. The first aircraft to have flown has successfully completed its flight test programme, which focused on the redesigned fuel system. It is now being fitted with its cabin.

The airline will operate the aircraft on non-stop services from Singapore to the U.S. This includes flights between Singapore and New York, which will be the world’s longest commercial service, as well as on routes to Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The Ultra Long Range A350-900 is the latest variant of the best-selling A350 XWB Family, and will have an extended range of up to 9,700 nautical miles. This has been achieved by a modified fuel system, which increases the aircraft’s fuel carrying capacity by 24,000 litres without the need for additional fuel tanks.

With a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 280 tonnes, the Ultra Long Range A350 is capable of flying over 20 hours non-stop, combining the highest levels of passenger and crew comfort with unbeatable economics for such distances.

The A350 XWB is an all new family of widebody long-haul airliners shaping the future of air travel. The A350 XWB features the latest aerodynamic design, carbon fibre fuselage and wings, plus new fuel-efficient Rolls-Royce engines. Together, these latest technologies translate into unrivalled levels of operational efficiency, with a 25 percent reduction in fuel burn and emissions, and significantly lower maintenance costs. The A350 XWB features an Airspace by Airbus cabin, offering absolute well-being on board with the quietest twin-aisle cabin and new air systems.

At the end of June 2018, Airbus has recorded a total of 882 firm orders for the A350 XWB from 46 customers worldwide, already making it one of the most successful widebody aircraft ever.

Singapore Airlines is one of the largest customers for the A350 XWB Family, having ordered a total of 67 A350-900s, including the seven Ultra Long Range models. The carrier has already taken delivery of 21 A350-900s.
