A very happy birthday to HH Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum!
The daughter of HH Sheikh Mohammed, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, celebrated her birthday yesterday. The Dubai princess is an important contributor to culture and literature development in the UAE and the tributes simply flooded in, with many sharing images of her as a young girl including touching moments she shared with her father.
Jinn, a new Arabic TV series exclusive to Netflix, premiered in Jordan last week.
And the hype was real.
Part supernatural show, part teen drama, pre-release the show was touted as the first Arabic show to dare to be racy. The narrative follows students on a field trip to Petra, where two jinns -- one good, the other evil - enter the human realm, turning a high school into a supernatural battleground... the show also features alleged 'immoral scenes' which are causing major debate.
And according to reports, Jordanian officials are not impressed. Authorities have slammed the show, amid calls for it to be removed by some netizens, while other social commentators are simply appreciating a new show featuring young Arab actors representing for the region.

However, this does NOT apply to private schools.
Private schools, which follow various international syllabi, will not follow suit according to teachers from a number of schools.
