Brit Guy Jailed In Dubai For Three Years For Touching Man’s Hips

Touching another man’s hips is apparently an unforgivable crime in Dubai and this Briton unfortunately didn’t know.

The Middle East has always been known for their strict compliance with their cultural practices on dress codes and decency. However, the United Arab Emirates, most especially the city of Dubai, opened its mind to new and more modern ideas. In fact, for the past couple of years, many tourists were attesting to its more “considerate” environment with the authorities already allowing women to flaunt their fashion sense; something that is still forbidden in other Arabian countries.

However, a previous incident in Dubai opens the world to the reality that the city still takes public indecency as a serious matter. It might have gone overboard though as a Briton was jailed for accidentally touching another man’s hip to avoid them from bumping each other.

A British tourist was jailed in Dubai for public indecency charges.

The accused, Jamie Harron from Stirling, Scotland, is facing three years in a UAE jail for an alleged “public indecency” after he touched a man so they did not bump and spill their drinks. However, campaigners say that Jamie is a victim of the Jordan national who tends to show off his power.

The supporters of the 27-year-old Briton believe that the Jordanian was urged by his companions during the incident to drop the case, but he refused. Following this, Radha Stirling of the campaign group called Detained in Dubai said Jamie’s accuser “was trying to show off his power in front of his friends.” She told in a radio program interview:

“His friends told him to drop the case, saying that it had gone too far, but he didn’t.”

The Briton insists that he only held the Jordanian’s hip to keep them from bumping into each other, but the latter refuse to drop the charges.

The injustice of Jamie’s case had his parents back in Scotland warning others to stay away from Dubai. His father, Graham, specifically condemns UAE promotional stints British nationals saying:

“We are a very close family and it is killing us to think of him spending even three nights in jail, let alone three years.
People have to stop visiting that country. I think it is unacceptable that the FCO actually promotes the UAE to British tourists.”

Jamie’s parents were very disappointed and they are now calling out on all travelers to stop seeing Dubai.

Jamie has been held in Dubai for three months now. Since the incident in June, he has already spent over £32,000 in expenses and legal fees to resolve the cultural misunderstanding. Furthermore, he was stripped of his passport and lost his job in Afghanistan.

Other reports reveal the unfortunate fate of Jamie while dealing with his case. He was forced to spend five days in a cell where he had to share a single mattress with eight other men in a notorious prison. He recalled the experience saying:

“The whole thing is like a horrible dream and I just don’t know when it is going to end. I thought it would be over by now but it feels like it will never be.
This has broken me, financially and emotionally.”

His family grew anxious as they are also facing financial challenges for trying to help Jamie get out of prison. Each of the members already reportedly stretched their own finances to a breaking point because of their loved ones’ case.

Jamie’s legal battle began in June while he was out with his friends during the night at the popular Rock Bottom Bar Dubai. Reports revealed that Jamie and his friends were buying their first drink from the crowded bar when the Briton placed his hand on the hip of the Jordanian to ensure they didn’t bump and spill their drinks into each other. Following this, Jamie denied committing “public indecency” saying he was just crossing the dance floor to avoid confrontation.

Jamie’s dad also came to his defense saying his son is “a good boy” and “is never a problem and never in trouble.” He also added:

“The UK embassy has not done anything to help and seem to think it is absolutely fine for British nationals to be abused in this way.
Since Jamie was arrested I have researched and found that this is more common than any of us think.”

Jamie continues to hit rock bottom as there are no developments happening to his case. On the other hand, Detained in Dubai said they ought to reach out to the UAE government “to make improvements to make the country safer for tourists, expats, and investors”.

Woman Undergoes 30 Surgeries To Look Like A Porn Star For Her Boyfriend

Her boyfriend criticized her and compared her to other girls.

By

When you love someone, you would sometimes go overboard just to please him or her. This way, you can show your love and affection. However, a 22-year-old woman loved her boyfriend so much; she underwent 30 plastic surgery procedures just to look like a porn star.

Berry Ng, a YouTube star from Hong Kong, underwent several procedures over the last five years, just to impress her (now ex-) boyfriend. She’s now regretting her decision.

Berry said that she started resorting to plastic surgery when her ex-partner compared her to supermodels, particularly porn stars.

As a result, she spent more than $3,000 to have her eyes, cheeks, forehead, nose, breasts, and chin fixed.

Her surgeries started when she was just 17 years old. She found a beauty center that offers student packages.

She got addicted and couldn’t stop undergoing beauty procedures.

In the hopes to impress her boyfriend, who always complained about her overall appearance, she underwent all the cosmetic procedures, which were completed when she was just 21 years old.

Sadly, despite all her efforts to change her appearance, they were still unable to impress her then-boyfriend.

He still criticized her appearance and compared her to other girls. This pushed her to go under the knife more just to gain his approval.


Berry said:

“At that moment, if he had stopped me and told me that I was beautiful enough, I would have stopped, but he didn’t.”

Her ex-boyfriend even insisted that her breasts were too small.

Berry underwent a breast augmentation surgery. The guy, however, said that he did not ask her to do the operation.

Berry got fed up and broke up with her boyfriend.

Now, she has recovered from her addiction to plastic surgery.

On her YouTube site, she regularly posts videos warning other girls against going overboard with plastic surgery and the ill effects of being addicted to cosmetic enhancements.

Berry learned one thing from her experience, that is to love yourself no matter what others say.

Guy Learns To Break A Glass Using Only His Voice

Can the high C of a trained soprano really quiver glass into dissolution?

You’ve probably seen something like this before in movies and TV shows. A particular scene where a character sings up to the point where they hit a note so high and intense that it breaks all the glass in the vicinity, even the windows.

Another particular thing that you’ve probably seen many times, a woman in an orchestra releasing an earthshaking high note that shatters Champagne flutes. Monocles crack and the chandelier explodes as the power of her voice wreaks havoc on the concert hall. This scene is too common in countless cartoons and comedies, but is this parody based on reality?

Can an opera singer really shatter glass?

To most people, this may just seem like a cartoonish exaggeration. But, believe it or not, with enough practice to attain the right pitch and volume, this is actually possible.

Physics suggests that a voice should be able to break glass. And that’s what exactly what Scottish YouTuber Mike Boyd wants to accomplish in the latest video of his Learn Quick series. Mike challenged himself to learn how to break glass using only his voice.


It took him 4 hours, 29 minutes of practice over the course of 14 days before he gained the ability to shatter a crystal wine glass with the power of his voice.

So how is this scientifically possible?

Well to begin with, sound is also a form of energy, just like electricity. It travels through various substances in waves. When a sound wave comes in contact with a certain object, it excites the particles present in that object, causing its particles to vibrate against themselves.

Glass wine goblets are especially resonant because of their hollow tubular shape, which is why they make a pleasant ringing sound when clinked. An empty glass is also easier to shatter than a glass filled with wine or water. Furthermore, minor defects in the structure of the glass can also help to shatter it more easily, as these defects provide ideal weak spots.

So if a person sings the same tone as that ringing sound when glass clinked — a high C according to legend but in reality the matching pitch could be any note — the sound of your voice will vibrate the air molecules around the glass at its resonant frequency, causing the glass to start vibrating as well. And if you sings loudly enough, the glass will vibrate itself to smithereens.

If you’ve ever doubted your ability to accomplish new things, Mike Boyd’s YouTube channel is the inspiration you’ve been seeking.
