A SLAM DUNKIN WEEK­END AHEAD

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE - See plat­inum­list.net for tick­ets.

The Har­lem Glo­be­trot­ters have been go­ing for 90 years, and they’re cel­e­brat­ing in Dubai with a per­for­mance at the Dubai Duty Free Ten­nis Sta­dium to­mor­row evening. While in town, they have also vis­ited schools to ad­dress the is­sue of bul­ly­ing. Team mem­ber, Han­dles Frankline, said: “We pride our­selves on not only be­ing great bas­ket­ball play­ers, but also great role mod­els for kids. “So we try not only to cap­ti­vate them with the bas­ket­ball, but more im­por­tantly give them a pos­i­tive mes­sage they can take with them.” The group taught pupils about the ABCs of bul­ly­ing. Cheese Chisholm (pic­tured right) said: “We talk to them about the ABCs of bul­ly­ing – A stands for ac­tion, B for brav­ery and C for com­pas­sion.” TNT Mad­dox added: “If we can nip that in the bud from a young age, we can put a dent in it. “So we’ve been do­ing that all around the world and it has been work­ing re­ally well.”
