From the blatantly bizarre and degenerate to the awe-inspiring, some of us go to extremes in our quest to break world records. Unfortunately, not all records are of the variety that we aspire to. The individuals on this list are all holders of tragic and sordid records that can only be gained through deplorable bad luck, foolhardiness, or simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Raheel Sharif’s FULL Debate and Speech at the Davos 2017 World Economic Forum Convention where he was an honorary Guest Invited to give a Talk on New Security Issues Facing the World and how to Eliminate them with Reference to his Successes while in the Pakistan Army.
Tags: Raheel Sharif Davos. Raheel Sharif World Economic Forum. Raheel Sharif WEF Speech Debate Full. Digital Age Issues and how CPEC can revive Pakistan’s Economy. Raheel Sharif Speech.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is a Swiss nonprofit foundation, Cologny, Canton of Geneva. Recognized by the Swiss authorities as an international body,[1] its mission is cited as “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas”.
The Forum is best known for its annual meeting at the end of January in Davos, a mountain resort in Graubünden, in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland. The meeting brings together some 2,500 top business leaders, international political leaders, economists, and journalists for up to four days to discuss the most pressing issues facing the world. Often this location alone is used to identify meetings, participation, and participants with such phrases as, “a Davos panel” and “a Davos Man”.[2]
The organization also convenes some six to eight regional meetings each year in locations across Africa, East Asia and Latin America, as well as undertaking two further annual meetings in China and the United Arab Emirates. Beside meetings, the foundation produces a series of research reports and engages its members in sector specific initiatives.[3]

In Korea, China and American, snowstorm made traffic obstructed. Meanwhile, in Brazil, Australia and Italia, heavy rains resulted in floods and landslide and evacuation. More terribly, natural disaster killed and wounded many people.


The Great Wall (China) overwhelmed in snow


Snow covered Forbidden City (China)


A street in Seoul, Korea



In Australia, local authorities announced that the Southwest area of this country is the natural disaster zone when citizens of a town were so worried about the increasing water level. Though meteorologists forecasted the most terrible level has reached, water level in lakes and reservoirs continued to increase.



Flood surrounded town Coonamble, 570km from Sydney to the Northwest



In North India, icy weather has not declined. In many parts of the country, heavy rains and snow-covered-hills led to drastic decline in temperature. It was estimated that at least 100 people died of the icy weather in Uttar Pradesh.



Citizens cycled in dense fog in Amritsar, capital of Punjab state, India



Yesterday, 85 people died and 5 others were lost due to landslide in Brazil. Casualties were mainly reported from Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. Particularly In Rio de Janeiro, landslide stole the lives of 72 people.



A small church collapsed in flood in Sao Luis de Paraitinga, 140km from Sao Paulo, Brazil



Europe was also flooded in icy weather. Snowstorms made traffic reversed in the New Year. Many people were stuck or had to delay their plans during the vacation.



Moscow sunk in snow



The unusual increase of tide has made most areas in Venice submerged deeply under the water and forced travelers and citizens to wade in water or to walk on wood pavements which are made in Square St Mark and other noticeable locations.

Water is everywhere from bars to cafes

Kelly McNeil is a Chinese who is currently living in the United States. He writes this article to express his sympathy towards his people in particular and people in the world in general.

“Painting is the grandchild of nature. It is related to God.” – Rembrandt

Rembrandt painted his relationship to God through portraits and illustration of Biblical scenes to incorporate spirituality in his art work. Art is the expression of ideas through painting and this is where the master artisan from the golden period of Islamic history took a different course and with great mastery gave birth to the aesthetics of Islamic Art as we know today.

Islamic Art is a broad subject that includes everything from calligraphy, stucco design, geometric shapes, floral patterns and architecture etc. This art was born out of the need to reflect the spiritual and reflective nature of the religion to reinforce the awareness of God through new forms of aesthetics. These new aesthetics had to be free from any portrayal of animate objects which possessed a soul in accordance with the Prophetic Tradition which prohibited portrayal of anything that possessed a soul.

This led to the Islamic art developing its own form of expressions yet utilising the old techniques of the Persian and Byzantine cultures and developing new ones with the time. As Islam spread its influence, Islamic art became more and more diverse and dynamic by adopting the new forms of artistic expressions in various parts of the world. For Muslims all forms of Islamic Art is a means to attain closeness to the divine nature of God by contemplating on the beauty of art itself.

At the centre of the origin of Islamic Art is the fascination with the written word which is down to two factors. First, being that the Arab people were masters of oratory skills and were unaware of the power of the written word that had deep and profound impact on their society after the revelation of The Holy Qur’an. Secondly, when the Qur’an was revealed and written its divine message had profound impact on the society and this expression of its appreciation was shown in all aspects of society. In Islamic Art this was expressed in Arabic calligraphy which became the adornment of the courts of caliphs and wazirs. This did not exclude scholars and theologians whose timeless literature was composed elaborately in Arabic calligraphy with great attention.

Sohail Khan works for Islamic Impressions which specialises in retail and wholesale products for the Islamic market and stocks a wide range of Islamic art, frames and other beautiful pieces to view online or in our stores in London, Birmingham, Denmark and Trinidad.
