In 2015, there were 30,000 sick leaves right after Eid and I was wondering back then if there was a sudden massive diarrhea virus spreading in Kuwait (sarcasm). This year it’s over 31,000 and I’m wondering if it’s related to fecal (feces) bacteria found in Starbucks’ Iced Coffee that’s making the internet go crazy, it’s not though, just bad ethics for some probably.
It appears there has been a huge portion of people who suddenly went sick coincidently for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that are right after Eid. Who knows, maybe there was a massive diarrhea virus spreading in Kuwait, or everyone just decided they wanted to take the entire week off. More details [here].
There’s going to be two infra-red cameras installed at two border check points due to the escalating number of cases. So far 200 people have died from MERS Virus in neighbouring Saudi Arabia. The virus isn’t a global public health emergency and hopefully wont be but cases are steadily increasing.[Source]
Not sure whether to think of this as pathetic or hilarious. If you visit graduate.edu.kw in Chrome, FireFox or Sarafi the browser will warn you not to enter the website. The website offers people studying Masters at KU access to check their class schedules amongst other things.
Upon further inspection it appears the website has 71 trojans, which is a huge number. I don’t know what is the effect of these malware’s but people studying masters have no way to accessing information other than to go to the University and manually check up with someone, which is practical if we were living in 1999.
This is worse than calling yourself the Bublic Prosection.
Turns out November 25th is Update Your Parents’ Browser Day. In case you find no reason in this, outdated browsers are vulnerable to viruses. It also make life easier for web developers and designers. You don’t need to go from Internet Explorer 5 to Chrome. Just update Internet Explorer to it’s latest version. If you get caught just explain why you’re doing this.
