PODCAST: UAE in a minute for January 16, 2018
Making today's headlines: more heavy fog, a special report on the UAE bringing light to Malawi and see your design projected on to the Burj Khalifa
Heavy fog has, once again, caused travel disruptions, blanketing parts of the UAE overnight and into Tuesday morning.
The National Centre of Meteorology said visibility was lower than 200 metres in some places, causing traffic and flight delays. Abu Dhabi International Airport suffered major delays, with flights departing an average of 45 minutes late this morning.
Also on the website, a special report on how the Zayed Future Energy Prize helped to light up the lives of children in Malawi.To mark the award’s 10th anniversary, we revisit one of its winners: In a rural village where there had once been no electricity, the children can now study at night.
And finally, calling all designers and artists – Emaar is offering to project your work on the Burj Khalifa as part of its record breaking light show. Submissions are open until February 28, and 10 winning designs will be splashed across 109,252 square metres of the world’s tallest building.
