Security guards and power?

Nightline asked is security guards need to have more power. Did you know there may be as many as 30, 000 security guards in Dubai? And did you know that 1200 Dirhams a month is the average salary? What about putting a gun in the security guards hand? Pepper spray? There was no cut and dry answer here. It would seem that people figure things are working pretty well today so why meddle with things. I loved the SMS that suggested that Emiraties need to take on this career and that would lead to great change. Here is the podcast.

Fitness with Marcus

This week Marcus walked us through the wild world of fitness. The golden rule? Simple. Steer clear of any plastic and there is no easy way to workout. "If you want it that bad you will have to work a little bit for it"! Loved the SMS talking about the gyms. Does anyone really think there is value in trash talking other gyms? We didn't get to talk about kids this week. Next week it is all about working out with your kids.
