Gareth Bale came off the bench to book Real Madrid's place in the Club World Cup final as the European champions recovered from the shock of going behind to beat Emirati champions Al Jazira 2-1 on Wednesday.Despite dominating throughout, Madrid trailed at half-time to Romarinho's opener in a match also marred by use of the video assistant referee (VAR) that ruled out a goal for both sides.Madrid's pressure finally paid off 10 minutes into the second half when Cristiano Ronaldo levelled before Bale broke Al Jazira's resistence with his first touch eight minutes from time."It's great to get the goal," Bale told Real Madrid TV. "When you come on you want to make an impact, but the most important thing is to win and be in the final."Real will go for their fifth trophy of the year when they face Brazilian side Gremio on Saturday.Bale was making only his second substitute appearance since September due to a series of muscle injuries. #happening #breakingnews #storyoftheday #news #realmadrid #aljazira #football #soccer #sport #special #abudhabi #newspaper #royals #garethbale #cristianoronaldo #worldcup #emirati #thegulftoday @realmadrid @al_jazira @fifaworldcup

The United Nations on Tuesday warned that more than 400,000 children in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are severely malnourished and could die within months without emergency intervention. The crisis -- the latest to hit the poverty-stricken, strife-torn central African country -- is unfolding in the vast region of Kasai, the UN's children fund Unicef said. An 18-month-long combination of violence, mass displacement and slumping agricultural output are having a devastating impact on the very young, it said. "At least 400,000 children under five... are suffering from severe acute malnutrition and could die in 2018 if they are not urgently reached with life-saving health and nutrition interventions," it said bluntly. #congo #food #hunger #happening #famine #story #disaster #civilwar #malnutrition #security #safety #national #thegulftoday @unitednations

A viral selfie documenting one woman’s skin cancer treatment prompted record high Google searches for prevention of the condition, a new study has found. Tawny Willoughby was 27-years-old when she posted the graphic snap to Facebook, which showed her scarred and scab-laden face alongside the caption “this is what skin-cancer treatment can look like”. The 2015 post, which has since been shared more than 105,000 times, triggered a wave of media coverage akin to the attention that is typically garnered by celebrity health stories. “If anyone needs a little motivation to not lay in the tanning bed and sun here ya go,” Willoughby’s compelling post began. Willoughby – who now goes by the surname Dzierzek – frequently used tanning beds as a teenager and was diagnosed with skin cancer when she was 21-years-old. She explained that as a high school student in Kentucky she would sometimes tan up to four times a week which she has since acknowledged as excessive. At the time of posting, she had basal cell carcinoma five times and visited the dermatologist biannually. She added that she did not have melanoma, which can be deadly, and was keen to explain that skin cancer does not necessarily manifest itself in moles but can leave sufferers with disfiguring facial scars. According to the study, which was published in the journal Preventive Medicine on Monday, Willoughby’s post generated a 162 per cent boost in Google searches of the terms “skin” and “cancer”. #skin #cancer #tanning #skintan #glamour #beauty #usa #london #happenng #diagnosis #medicine #treatment #message #doctor #thegulftoday #kentucky @tawnybelle

Entities responsible for implementing the circular include the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority and the municipalities of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. The decision is based on the findings of a technical report following the warning issued by the French Directorate General of Health (DGS) regarding the contamination of the infant milk, which had been exported to 30 countries including the UAE. The company Lactalis proceeded to the withdrawal and recall of its products after the contamination of twenty babies under 6 months with salmonella.The Ministry urges consumers to dispose of the French-made infant milk, as per the attached details. The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment emphasizes that all food products in the UAE, whether locally produced or imported, are safe for consumption as they are strictly monitored by the Ministry and relevant local authorities. #france #milk #uae #salmonella #containminated #milk #infant #infantmilk #news #story #europe #babyfood #abudhabi #dubai #sharjah #ajman #rasalkhaimah #ummalquwain #fujairah #thegulftoday #ministry @moccaeuae @adfca @dubaimunicipality @shjmunicipality @ajmanmunicipality

The world of Instagram fashion blogging is a fierce one - but one fashion icon is proving that you don’t have to be a millennial to dominate.Lyn Slater is a 64-year-old professor at Fordham University who also happens to be one of the most popular fashion influencers on Instagram, with over 300,000 followers. An “accidental icon,” as she calls herself (and her blog), the fashion-forward professor became a known name in fashion, as the name suggests, by accident. As the story goes, Slater happened to be at the right place at the right time during New York Fashion Week, when, dressed in a Yohji Yamamoto suit and carrying a Chanel bag, photographers began to surround her, assuming she must be someone important in fashion, given the high fashion look about her. From there, tourists began to follow the lead, and before long, Slater’s image was appearing everywhere. While Slater wasn’t anyone in the fashion world at the time, she certainly is now. Truly an accidental icon, Slater decided that she would use her newfound fame to start a blog, where she could cater to women similar in age. According to the “about” section on her blog, the 64-year-old created the blog because she “was having trouble finding a fashion blog or magazine that offered an urban, modern, intellectual aesthetic but also spoke to women who live what I call ‘interesting but ordinary lives in cities’. Women (like me) who are not famous or celebrities but are smart, creative, fashion forward, fit, thoughtful, engaged, related, and most importantly clear and comfortable with who they are... ” #professor #lady #fashion #happening #breakingnews #storyoftheday #picoftheday #news #gossip #glamour #fame #beauty #happiness #culture #lynslater #fordhamuniversity #education #intelligence #dubai #world #usa #london #thegulftoday @iconaccidental

They say we all cross paths with the person we ultimately settle down with before meeting them, but one couple have been able to pinpoint the exact moment that happened - with pictorial evidence.Upon looking back at an old childhood family photo of his fiancée, a man spotted himself in the background.Verona Koliqi, who lives in London but is originally from Kosovo, was visiting a beach in Montenegro with her family a decade ago when the photo was taken.“We analysed further and confirmed with family members that it’s him photobombing my family photo.”The couple didn’t believe it could be possible at first - after all, what are the chances that they were both on holiday at the same place, at the exact same beach, at the same time? - but Buzaku’s family members confirmed that they’d been there when the photo was taken.They never actually met as children and it wasn’t until the summer of 2016 that the couple’s paths crossed again in Kosovo - a year later they were engaged.After sharing her story on Instagram, Koliqi’s post has received over 30,000 likes and many gushing comments.Many people decided to share their own stories of coincidence and love.“My boyfriend and I discovered that we were unknowingly were at the same small concert (which maybe 50 people attended) about four years before we met,” one person wrote.“It's wonderful and no coincidence. You're meant to be!” #love #breakingnews #london #america #usa #fiance #happeningnow #viralvideo #viralphoto #news #photography #newspaper #picoftheday #thegulftoday #family #veronakoliqi #socialmedia #instagram #facebook #thegulftoday @veronavanity @mirandbuzaku

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday described Israel as a “terrorist state” and vowed to use “all means to fight” against the US recognition of occupied Jerusalem as the country’s capital.“Palestine is an innocent victim. As for Israel, it is a terrorist state, yes, terrorist!” Erdogan said in a speech in the central city of Sivas.“We will not abandon (occupied) Jerusalem to the mercy of a state that kills children.”Separately, Arab foreign ministers late on Saturday rejected the US decision, saying President Donald Trump’s announcement was a “dangerous violation of international law.”Following an emergency meeting in Cairo on Saturday, the Arab League stressed that this shift in US policy is a dangerous development, which places the US in a position of bias in support of the occupation and violates international laws and resolutions.#turkish #terrorist #violence #israel #instagram #instagrammer #jerusalem #instagallery #instachildren #specialpage #newspaper #thegulftoday #children #internationals
