Such a beautiful country
 
"The heritage of Yemen is unique, reflecting centuries of Islamic thought, rich exchange and dialogue. I call on the people of Yemen, as well as on countries in the region engaging in military operations in Yemen, to do all they can to protect Yemen’s invaluable cultural heritage.”

As conflict escalates in Yemen, the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, calls for protection of the country’s cultural heritage.

Lovely app from Samsung, parents with autistic children will love it.

The app works only with Samsung devices but I'm sure it will soon available for other Android and iOS phones.

A program in Kenya which encourages boys to stand up against violence towards women has being highly effective in teaching adolescent boys successful interventions when witnessing physical or sexual assault. One of the program's participants witnessed a man dragging a little girl along the riverbank and called other young men to help him confront the man and rescue the child.

Every high school student in Nairobi will now undergo the six-week training program by the end of 2017. "Our main focus on the curriculum is positive masculinity for the boys, positive empowerment, and actually making them gentlemen on issues to do with the prevention of rape and standing up for the rights of women," says Collins Omondi, one of the program's teachers.

A shrinking population of less than 250 Arabian leopards struggle to survive along the isolated Yemen-Oman border. A small group of conservationists is trying to prove that the leopard’s habitat may extend into small pockets of Western Yemen as well, but with rampant environmental neglect and government corruption, the task is a difficult one. Journalist Gaar Adams joins a week-long expedition through Yemen’s majestic Haraz Mountains and Western Highlands — some of the most remote and unexplored natural environments on the planet — in a quest to find and protect the last of Arabia’s critically endangered big cats.

Looks interesting!
 
Masaaki Uchino & Shiori Kutsuna are cast in new movie KAINAN 1890 (literally "Shipwreck 1890). The film was previously known as "Ertugrul". The film is a joint Japan-Turkey production and the film features two different based-on-true-stories that displays the friendship between the two countries. Movie is directed by Mitsutoshi Tanaka ("Ask This of Rikyu").

In the first story, which is set in 1890, a Turkish battleship sinks off the coast of Japan and local Japanese residents work feverishly to save Turkish crew members. The second story is set in 1985 during the Iran-Iraq War. The Turks work feverishly to evacuate Japanese nationals out of Iran when Saddam Hussein announces his intentions to shoot down airplanes that flyover Iran.

KAINAN 1890 will be released December, 2015 in Japan.
