Ap­pre­ci­ate the won­der­ful re­port­ing on Hur­ri­cane Irma

I hope Rob Crilly man­aged to stay safe dur­ing his re­port­ing on the re­cent US nat­u­ral dis­as­ters (Hur­ri­cane Irma spins off tor­na­does as it starts to pum­mel south Florida, Septem­ber 10). Keep up the good work. Danny Tay­lor, Dubai

How do we know which prod­ucts are toxic?

I re­fer to your ar­ti­cle, Govern­ment is­sues health warn­ing over ‘toxic’ on­line body­build­ing

drugs (Septem­ber 11). It would be great if The Na­tional could share links to those pages to show where these prod­ucts are be­ing sold and what ex­actly we should avoid buy­ing. Gaz Wat­son, Dubai

A nice ges­ture from the Dubai po­lice

It was so nice of the Dubai po­lice to al­low a lit­tle boy to mimic what they do for a liv­ing (Boy, 7, stops traf­fic in rush­hour role as po­lice of­fi­cer, Septem­ber 10). Ab­dul­salam Khan, Pak­istan

Thank you for shed­ding light on the over­spend­ing plague

I re­fer to your ar­ti­cle, Lessons learnt from ‘keep­ing up with the

Jone­ses’ in the UAE (Septem­ber 6). A sub­stan­tially well-writ­ten ar­ti­cle. A lot of my fel­low com­rades live this way, spend­ing more than what they earn. Liz Dun­gog Ali­ganga, Abu Dhabi This is­sue is not lim­ited to this coun­try, but a well-writ­ten ar­ti­cle none­the­less. Name with­held by re­quest

Pre­serv­ing her­itage is key to na­tional iden­tity

I re­fer to your ar­ti­cle, Oman’s Be­douin her­itage un­der threat

from mod­erni­sa­tion (Septem­ber 9). As far as I know, Oma­nis are descen­dants of one of the old­est Arab clans, the peo­ple of Aad and Thamud. They come from Ye­men. These clans are spread all over the Ara­bian Penin­sula. They have at least 5,000 years worth of his­tory to their name. Real Saif Saed, Dubai

Tra­di­tion and her­itage are very im­por­tant pil­lars among na­tions. In fact, I be­lieve that the preser­va­tion of his­tory, cul­ture and tra­di­tion is tan­ta­mount to na­tional duty. Coun­tries must learn to rec­on­cile be­tween mod­erni­sa­tion and their his­tory and her­itage. Asyah Elis­a­beth Meel, Dubai

Those who will teach moral ed­u­ca­tion need to be trained

In ref­er­ence to your ar­ti­cle, Moral ed­u­ca­tion taught in UAE schools for the first time

(Septem­ber 10), it was about time such a sub­ject was in­tro­duced. Ques­tion is: who will be train­ing the teach­ers be­fore they be­gin teach­ing this sub­ject? Tanya Milbourne, Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi’s green­ery makes it ideal for many fam­i­lies

I re­fer to your ar­ti­cle, UAE re­mains most favoured real estate in­vest­ment des­ti­na­tion

(Septem­ber 9). Abu Dhabi cer­tainly has many green spa­ces, mak­ing it one of the more at­trac­tive areas to live for a lot of peo­ple, in my opinion. Pa­tri­cia Estep, Abu Dhabi
