"American journalist Christina Adams did a deep dive into the world of camels, spanning continents and cultures, after learning about the potential health benefits of camel milk following a chance encounter with a herder in California. Her journey was personal: Her son, who was diagnosed with autism as a child and suffered from recurring health issues, saw dramatic improvements to his behavioral health after he began drinking camel milk. That kickstarted Adams’ journey, lasting more than a decade, to learn all she could about camel milk and camels. Her odyssey included excursions with Mennonite herders in Michigan and interactions with camel farmers in Somalia, UAE and India. In the process, she discovered not only how camel milk might be used to treat a range of illnesses, but also gained exceptional insights into camels and their caretakers. The book’s appendix includes extensive resources about how to use camel milk."

* The Inamori International Center of Ethics & Excellence in the USA presented a lecture by Professor David Livingston Smith entitled " Making Monsters: The Uncanny Power of Dehumanization." Dr. Livingston specializes in the Psychology and Mind philosphies at New England, Kings College.
Dr. Mohamed Ali AlBar sent Aden College website a review of the video on Youtube. Dr. AlBar criticized the topic by saying, "The lecturer did not mention that the origin of these false assaults is found in the Torah adopted by the Evangelists in the United States, especially the Calvinist groups. In the Book of Genesis from the distorted Torah, we find that Noah, peace be upon him, after God and his sons escaped from the flood, planted grapes and then made wine and drank it until he slept in his room He was naked from his drunkenness, so his son Ham entered the room and found him naked and vomite of wine in his bed, so he went out to his brothers mocking the image of his drunk father in a miserable condition, and Sam and Japheth entered into their father's room and covered him without looking at his nakedness. Ham would be a servant of slaves to his brothers, and the commentaries of the Torah say that Ham turned black and he is the father of the black race. As for Sam, he is the father of the Semites (Arabs and Jews). Ham, was cursed, and he was a slave to his brothers, and he was the father of all blacks."
