Fakih IVF offers Eid discounts on IVF packages

Fakih IVF Fertility Center is running an Eid campaign that promises to extend its services to everyone in need. As part of this initiative, patients will be offered a generous discount on all IVF/ICSI packages along with an additional discount on all other infertility packages. This offer can be availed until Aug. 31 at the center’s branches located in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al-Ain.

Dr. Michael Fakih, medical director of Fakih IVF, said: “We understand the importance of wanting to have one’s own child, and this campaign is once again one of our efforts in reaching out to everyone wishing to start a family of their own. We know it’s an uphill task and want to make sure we stand by each family from the beginning until the very end.”

Whilst rolling out this campaign, experts at the clinic are also looking to raise awareness on the importance of egg freezing. The procedure involves preserving a woman’s reproductive potential to ensure their ability to get pregnant or have a biological child. To emphasize its importance the clinic will also be offering egg freezing packages at discounted rates where interested women can learn more about the procedure, its impact, and the reasons they may choose to opt for it. 

“Women these days wish to delay their pregnancies due to several factors such as undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments, career, or just perhaps the need to spend more time with their partners. So that they do not face any complications when they wish to conceive we want to provide them a comprehensive breakdown of how egg freezing can be done,” Dr. Fakih added.


Dubai to host Mideast’s first dinosaur auction

Dubai to host Mideast’s first dinosaur auction

A massive 155-million-year-old dinosaur skeleton will be up for grabs for lovers of rare collectibles as Emirates Auction announced it will organize the Middle East’s first auction to sell the giant dinosaur skeleton. 

The online auction will be conducted by Emirates Auction, which specializes in organizing and managing public and electronic auctions, at a starting value of 14.6 million dirhams (SR14.9 million, $4 million) and will end on Aug. 25. 

The 24.4-meter-long by 7-meter-high skeleton, which dates back to the Jurassic period, is the first of its kind in the world to be installed at the Dubai Mall. 

Back then the 25-year-old dinosaur weighed up to five elephants and was one of the long-necked herbivorous dinosaurs and has a tail tapering to a long, thin whip-like end to defend itself against predators.

The dinosaur belongs to the Diplodocus longus variety, deriving it from the Greek words “diplos,” meaning “double,” and “dokos” meaning “beam.” 

Nearly 90 percent of the fossil’s bones are original, making it a stunning discovery in the history of palaeontology. The remains of the adult dinosaur were discovered in a sleeping position in 2008 at the Dana Quarry in the US state of Wyoming.

The auction will be an ideal opportunity for those looking for excellence to supplement their collections with a historic masterpiece rarely found around the world.

The specimen was previously displayed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in the US state of Texas. It was sourced through Khalid Seddiq, founder of Etihad Modern Art Gallery in Abu Dhabi, and was put on permanent display at The Dubai Mall in 2014.

Emirates Auction is a UAE-based auction company in the Middle East. Founded in 2004, the company specializes in automobiles, vehicle license plates, real estate and properties, asset liquidation, VIP mobile numbers, jewelry, time-sensitive items, and heavy machinery, plant and construction equipments.

With increasing annual sales and registered bidders across the UAE, GCC and North Africa states, Russia and other countries across the world, the auctioneer conducts over 200 online and physical auctions per year. The company is credited with significantly contributing to the development of auction concepts in the Arab world.
