Majid Saif Al Ghurair, #Chairman of #Dubai #Chamber of #Commerce, and his team, visited #American #University of #Sharjah yesterday to discuss areas of possible partnership between #AUS and the #DubaiChamber..

No, I am not #singing in the #rain, just taking a stroll on the #beach in Uolu (Uleåborg) in the #northern half of Finland, at latitude N 65° just below the #Polar #Circle, during my recent visit to #Uolu together with a delegation from the #Government of #Sharjah to explore #technological #research and #innovation partnerships. The #official #visit included meetings at the #University of Uolu; University of Uolu of #Applied #Sciences; VTT #Technical #Research #Centre of #Finland Ltd; and visits to and discussions with representatives from a number of impressive technology #companies including PrintoCent; UKI Arkkitehtit Ltd; Game #Campus & Uolu #Game #Lab; #Nokia #Networks; and others. We attended official meals hosted by the #Council of Uolu #Region and the #City of Uolu. The beach is widely considered the best in Finland, and of course, I had to visit but refrained from taking a bath.

#Lockheed #Martin VP Stan Ramirez for #Industrial #Participation spent several hours today with a 12-person team from #AUS listening to #presentations about the #research capabilities of AUS and discussing potential research #partnerships, especially in the #College of #Engineering and the College of #Arts and #Sciences, which were represented by their respective deans and several key #faculty #researchers in addition to the #Provost, the #Executive #Director of #Advancement, and Zeyad Almajed, Director of #Business #Development of AUS #Enterprises.

While attending the #International #Institute for #Strategic #Studies (IISS) #Bahrain Bay #Forum in #Manama on Sunday, I had the opportunity to meet Carl Bildt and discuss #AUS and other topics.

Had the privilege of #inaugurating the #American #University of #Sharjah #Fall2017 #ClubFair at the university’s #Student #Center this afternoon. The two-day event, held each #semester, gives new #students a chance to sign up for the many #cultural and common #interest #clubs at the university. Together with #Provost and #Chief #Academic #Officer, Dr. Susan L. Karamanian, #Dean of Students Dr. Moza Al Shehhi and other #senior #officials, we visited various clubs booths to learn of their activities and interact with students.

AUS was closed for the #Eid-Al-Adha Holiday. With my family, we drove 410km to the ferry landing for the 30 minute boat ride to the 87 km2 Sir Baniyas #Yas #Island in western #Abu #Dhabi. The conservation effort on the island was started in 1971 by #Sheikh Zayed and now includes 3 million planted and irrigated trees, 13,000 #exotic #animals of 22 #species. In the #image, two #cheetahs feast on a #gazelle.

Eid Mubarak to all. #Eid #AlAdha #AUS

On 20th May #1498, #Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama landed at #Kappad, Calicut, #Kerala , on the #Malabar (spice) #coast after the longest sea journey to date, beginning the very lucrative #spice trade between #Europe and #Asia. The #beach where he landed is rather erosional and defined by #groins.
