Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef said he might make a comeback with a digital show with Fusion, an American multi-platform media company. In an interview with the weekly American Variety magazine given during the Dubai International Film Festival, Youssef said the show with Fusion will be a ‘little experiment’, where democracy from a Middle Eastern perspective inside America will be humorously and informatively discussed. Youssef, who hasn't been in Egypt for 13 months, said he’s planning a move to the United States from Dubai. The Egyptian satirist, whose popular weekly show El-Bernameg (The Programme) on Egyptian television was cancelled in 2014, said that while he had his own problems with the Islamist regime which ruled Egypt prior to July 2013, his sense of humour was not tolerated by the government that removed the Islamic regime, so someone pulled the plug on El-Bernameg. Youssef said he has decided to not produce El-Bernameg outside of Egypt despite remunerative offers. “This show belongs to Egypt, to an Egyptian team, to an Egyptian audience in the heart of Cairo. And I’m not going to be a dissident, a fugitive who is going to be doing the show from outside the country. I think if I’m not there, it sends a much clearer message about how things are,” Youssef explained. Youssef spoke about his future plans, including a movie project, titled “The Comedy of Arabs,” to be produced in the US. More»

US actor Edward Norton has raised more than $425,000 as of Tuesday for a Syrian refugee whom he read about on a popular blog and whose tragic story moved him "to tears." The Syrian, a scientist who lost seven members of his family in a bombing two years ago -- including his wife and a daughter -- was featured on the website "Humans of New York" earlier this month. The blog, created in 2010 by US photographer Brandon Stanton, began by featuring everyday New Yorkers and sharing small snippets of their life stories, but has now expanded to include individuals from other countries. The Syrian, whom the website simply refers to as "the scientist," is living in Istanbul but will soon move to Troy, Michigan. More»

Egypt’s Giza pyramids will be fitted with green lights on Monday and Tuesday to coincide with the United Nations climate summit in Paris, state news agency MENA reported. Some 150 heads of state, including Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, US President Barack Obama and Russia's Vladimir Putin, gathered on Monday for two weeks of climate change talks aimed at forging a global pact to combat climate change. Most scientists say failure to take action would doom the world to hotter temperatures and calamitous events such as droughts and rising sea levels that would wipe out low-lying regions. More»

Bassem Youssef will be hosting this year’s Emmy Awards Gala, which will take place at the Hilton New York Hotel on November 23. "I am extremely honored to be chosen, following in the footsteps of incredibly funny and distinguished comedians like John Oliver and Matt Lucas, who hosted the ceremony the last two years," said Bassem Youssef in a press release on the Emmy’s website. "This is a great opportunity where television productions from outside the United States are recognized. Being the first host from the Middle East will put more responsibility on my shoulders to serve this position in the best way I can and I hope that this will shed more light on the vibrant entertainment industry in my region."

The international political sphere has been riding one wave of turbulence after the other, prompting an increased number of pointed fingers and a growing gap between people. Meanwhile in the world of culture, literature and books, one Egyptian chain of bookstores set out to spread what the Arab culture is truly about beyond the Middle East. Alef Bookstores, a chain of over 30 branches across Egypt, has now extended its reach into the heart of the British capital, London.In a cosmopolitan city like London, there is a huge unaddressed demand for Arabic literature and culture alike,” says Ahmed Rahmy, general manager at Alef Bookstores. “With the recent shutting down of many independent bookstores across London, and the domination of two big chains, Alef is hoping to bring the city’s readers a different array of books as well as become a hub for the Arabic culture.” With over 45,000 copies in stock, the bookstore – which lies on one of London’s most toursity streets, Baker Street – presents a variety of reads ranging from English books, translated Arabic literature and non-fiction books, as well as Arabic books in their original language.

President Vladimir Putin said Russia must "do everything" to eradicate doping, ordering an inquiry into allegations of major drug abuse in athletics days before the country risks being barred from next year's Olympics. Moscow is scrambling to respond to a bombshell World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report released this week that alleged systematic doping in Russian athletics, including by suggesting a foreign specialist could take over its discredited testing laboratory. Athletics' world governing body, the IAAF, has given Russia until Friday to come up with answers to the allegations, and Putin met sports chiefs in Sochi, the Black Sea home of the 2014 Winter Olympics, ahead of the deadline. The stakes could not be higher for Russia, which risks being excluded from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio over damning allegations of corruption and "state-sponsored" doping. "We must do everything in Russia to rid ourselves of this problem," Putin said in footage shown on Russian television of the meeting -- ironically called to discuss the country's preparations for Rio 2016. "We must carry out our own internal inquiry," he said, telling sports officials to show "the most open and professional cooperation with international anti-doping authorities". "This problem does not exist only in Russia, but if our foreign colleagues have questions, we must answer them," he said. It is the first time Putin, himself an avid sportsman, has commented publicly on the charges levelled by an independent commission chaired by WADA's Dick Pound, which have rocked the flagship Olympics sport. Putin echoed a plea by Russia's Olympic Committee not to sacrifice the dreams of clean competitors, saying there should not be collective punishment. "If someone breaks the rules on doping, the responsibility should be individual," the Kremlin leader said. "Athletes who have never touched doping should not pay for those who have transgressed." 'Defiling Russia's image' As the doping storm has developed during the week, Russian officials have given conflicting responses. Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko on Wednesday lashed out at the claims, saying they were an attempt to "defile the image" of the country and arguing that excluding Russia from the Olympics would be to get rid of a "major competitor". But Mikhail Butov, the Russian athletics federation's secretary general and one of the 27 council members of the IAAF who will meet on Friday, conceded that doping was an issue. "We are conscious of the problem that we've got. We've got a problem with doping," he admitted to the BBC. Russia, accused by WADA of "sabotaging" the last Olympic Games, finished fourth in the medals table at London 2012. The furore comes after Grigory Rodchenkov, the disgraced director of Moscow's suspended anti-doping laboratory who according to WADA deliberately destroyed almost 1,500 samples, resigned his post. His laboratory has being stripped of its accreditation, prompting swimming's governing body FINA to announce it had moved all the samples taken at this year's world championships in Russia to a WADA-approved lab in Barcelona. 'Sad and shocking' The crisis engulfing athletics comes hot on the heels of a massive corruption scandal at world football's top body FIFA and as cycling is still recovering from the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. On Wednesday shamed former IAAF president Lamine Diack, 82, who is facing corruption charges, resigned from his position on the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Olympic chief Thomas Bach, in his first reaction to WADA's findings, said the report was "sad and shocking", pointing to allegations that some officials demanded vast sums of money to hush up positive dope tests. "I would never have imagined that in an international federation, money would be solicited from athletes to manipulate results," said the International Olympic Committee president. Fears are growing that the scandal could widen to include other countries and other sports, as WADA suggested in its report. More»
