GUESTLIST 2017 / ISSUE 100 11 While evidence below suggests that Qatar does have ties to terrorist groups, the Saudi royals have also had involvement with the destabilisation of the Middle East. Evidence shows that countries like Saudi Arabia have had involvement in global events such as the 9/11 and bombings in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen. So why Qatar? Qatar is currently seeing its citizens and government officials deported back from the neighbouring Gulf states, air and sea travel suspended and it's land borders with Saudi Arabia shut, effectively cutting off the country to the rest of the Arabian area. Of course, Donald Trump and the US are involved in some way. This move comes weeks after Trumps first presidential foreign visit to Saudi Arabia. US National Security Adviser insisted "the entire trip is about human rights, about all civilised people coming together to fight hatred" - interesting statement to make, considering he was in a country which executes anyone who disagrees with their views. The irony of the story, of course, is Donald Trump recently confirmed a $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The same country which has been using those very weapons to bomb countries like Syria and Yemen. The US isn't the only country with blood on their hands. The UK, France and Germany are also involved with dealing with terrorist funders. QATAR ACCUSED OF FUNDING TERRORISM... BY FUNDERS OF TERRORISM In a political earthquake Saudi Arabia, U.A.E, Bahrain and Egypt cut all diplomatic ties with Qatar, their Gulf neighbour. Qatar is accused of spreading chaos by funding terrorism and supporting Iran. As well as preventing kidney stones and lowering the risk of heart attacks, one glass of beer a day is suggested to strengthen bones and even reduce the risk of Alzheimer's. However, experts also warn that more than one or two beers a day can increase the risk of these health issues, so just make sure to get the balance right. A BEER A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTORS AWAY Failure isn't necessarily a negative. Every time you fail, you learn something new. It can be small or big but with each failure, you will pick up something! So if you are thinking of every failure as a lesson, what would you most want to learn? Why not make yourself a list of 10 things to try and fail at. Start with a mix of easy and hard; big and small. It could be as simple as getting up an hour earlier or getting a date, to booking a new customer or starting a book. Whatever your goals are, make sure your list correlates to them so that you are always moving in the right direction. Think what could you accomplish if you were aiming to fail at something every day, so let's get at it! LEARN TO LOVE FAILING Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. We have all heard how drinking a glass of red wine a day is thought to have lots of health benefits. But people at Pennsylvania State University have discovered that a glass of beer a day can actually help people live longer too! LEARN TO LOVE WANT YOU DON'T KNOW Don't take things personally, if you want be good at something, look at all the reasons you are not good at that thing, and attack them positively. For example, if you are shit at driving, stop complaining, stop being scared. Go to the car park, practice and become an expert, and leave that car park a more confident driver. You should learn to love learning, it will help you improve your failures. CAT RACE
