The last moment could be part of any passing moment of our life and then sudden power down, Sometimes life give you indications and gives you gap to assume and count your remaining days but sometimes your beloved ones suddenly get the news that you are not anymore in the world and become part of Arabtimes, Kuwaittimes, KuwaitUptoDate, well who knows, Allah kareeeeem.
Today one of my friend has provided me some official figures (2012 statistics), as per statistics the average death rate of Kuwait been 15 persons (Kuwaiti/Non Kuwaiti) per day in 2012 but the thing which made me little curious to do more research that in Kuwait death ratio is higher in winter season as compare to summer but soon I found that as per “National Vital Statistics Report” overall in world the death rate in throughout winter is really higher as compare to summer.

The carnival of school cricket reached its climax as Pakistan School & College & Future Star Cricket academy reached the final of Kuwait’s Cricket’s U-18 school tournament sponsored by Gulf Four.
In the first semifinal, Carmel School took on Pakistan School & College and surprisingly decided to field first. Splendid batting effort spearheaded by keeper Abdul Wahab (25 runs) and Qassim (21 runs) enabled the PSC team to put on a 54 runs opening partnership. Thereafter, a businesslike cameo innings from Mohammed Fouzi & a fruitful partnership with captain Abdul Jabbar laid the foundation of a huge score as Pakistan school posted 215 runs for 6 wickets in 20 overs. The pair looked to push some quick singles to keep the score ticking over and Mohammed Fouzi in particular got off to a flyer as he played with superb timing and picked up the lengthy deliveries to beautifully play it all over the ground. A neatly timed flick over the midwicket fence was the shot of the day. Fouzi’s entertaining knock of 84 runs contained 8 superbly timed sixes and four well hit boundaries while Jabbar scored 26 runs. Carmel school bowlers Waseef (2-36) & Heinz (2-25) bowled exceptionally well to contain the batsmen.
Carmel school started off well but the sheer pace of lanky paceman Shahrouk who produced plenty of bounce was too hot to handle and in a chase scored 128 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. Opener Aleem stood among the ruins to score a solid 50 runs. Shahrouk took 2 for 25 runs while spinners Abdul Jabbar & Abdul wahab took 2 wickets each to fetch Pakistan School & College a right place in the final. Principal of Pakistan School & College presented the Player of the match trophy to Mohammed Fouzi for his splendid batting performance.
In the second match of the day, Future Star cricket Academy, working like a well oiled unit produced their best so far to upset the applecart of Friends XI and reached the final. The highly rated Fiends XI after winning all the matches in the robin round league, were confident and fielding first restricted the Future Star academy team to 117 in 20 overs. Captain and south paw Ali Zaheer played well to score 25 runs and Zakaria supported him well to score 16 runs. Friends XI spinners Ahmed (2-19) & Bassem 2-16 produced exceptional bowling skills to skittle the Future star team to a moderate total.
A highly confident Friends XI started well as in form Mudassar cracked a magnificent 33 runs and along with Nabeel who anchored the innings with 20 runs put on 55 runs partnership. Anyway, the introduction of spinners put the brakes on the scoring rate and wickets fell like nine pins to the superb bowling performance by Bilal who took (3-3) & Murshed who flighted and turned the ball well, rattled the Friends XI innings to 105 runs. Ali Zaheer also bowled exceptionally well to capture 2 wickets for 22. Jassim who fought till the end scored 20 runs for Friends XI. Murshed was declared Player of the match for his excellent bowling performance.
A crime is committed in Kuwait every 30 minutes, according to a report published by a local newspaper yesterday quoting official statistics. Based on available data till September-end.
The report also indicates that felony cases including murder, mugging, fights and battery assault have “doubled” this year compared to 2011, further pointing out a rise in other cases including possession of unlicensed weapons and suicides. Further details in the statistical report show that 3906 felony and 11,595 misdemeanor crimes were recorded this year till the end of September. Moreover, 906 crimes were committed by Kuwaitis, more than any other nationality (up by 16% compared to 2011), followed by Egyptians with 247 (up by 18%) and bedouin (stateless) residents with 218 (up by 16.5%). To shed further light on the subject, Al-Qabas spoke with specialists in the security, educational and medical fields who blamed several aspects for the increase in recorded crimes in recent years. “The recurrence of crimes is a clear indication of a major flaw in security measures which the Interior Ministry shares responsibility for,” said attorney Nawaf Sari, who also believes that security on borders is “weak as far as checking smuggling of weapons into Kuwait was concerned.” The main suspect in the Avenues Mall murder case, a 22-year-old Bedouin, re-enacted his crime on Sunday in front of senior security officials including Acting Director of the Criminal Investigations General Department, Brigadier General Mahmoud Al-Tabbakh. The suspect, who faces first degree murder charges, also led officers to the place where he got rid of the weapon used in the crime.
