We’ve all come across as well as heard news agencies and research papers discussing the danger and the negative effects video games tend to have on the youth, but it is rare when we come across a situation where a group of teenagers decide to copy what they’ve seen in video games.
Marwa Mimi, infamous TV anchor and journalist in “Al Nahar” bares witness to her 15 year old teenage boy passing away after a bullet was accidentally shot at his head on Saturday, the first of February.
The incident had occurred when victim Kareem had gathered with his usual group of friends at a house in Zamalek that belonged to a close friend of theirs. This was their usual way of hanging out, but this time, things had gone very wrong.
Marwa stated that while the boys were out and about at their friend’s house, one of the group members had gotten his father’s gun along with him to play around and point the gun at each other, similar to the games they’re used to playing when they gather at PlayStation Hubs.
Kareem was announced dead at 2:00am on Saturday. Investigations state that the accused as well as his father are taken into custody until further notice from the trials that have already commenced.
It was claimed by investigators that what had occurred at the scene of the crime was that one of the group members was joking around and fired the gun at Kareem, presuming that it had been empty of ammunition.
The gun that had been fired was said by the accused that this was his father’s gun, which was said to be a “Tabanja”, a type of gun that is far from the modern day typical weapons we hear about. Through autopsies, they were capable of determining that the victim had two holes at the middle of his skull that were both enter and exits wounds of the ammo.
Marwa openly states “I want the right of my son, I will avenge his death ”. The accused claims that it was an accident and that he thought that the gun was emptied of ammunition, but reports and investigations are still on the go to decide what to make of this crime scene. Is he guilty or was it really just mistake?
Kareem told the press “It was all just a game, we were messing around like we do when playing video games.” Is Kareem’s alibi enough to keep him from being put behind bars?
At the end of the day, a mother is a victim of losing her child due to the impact of video games and the virtual world. May he rest in peace.
Going Back to School Soon? Here’s How You Can Keep Your Kids Safe!
Schools are upon us and this time of the year has always made us feel a bit down because as we welcome back school, we say our goodbyes to the last summer days.
This year it’s even scarier, parents are getting ready to welcome schools with a heavy heart as they send their kids to school during the pandemic.
We know that your kids’ safety comes first, and that you would always go the extra mile to protect them and keep them safe and sound. It may sound scary but we’re here to comfort you with some tips to follow, which will help you shield them from any harm.
Hand Hygiene & The Use of Sanitizers
Teach your kids about the importance of washing their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds. Teachers should also be the ones to lead, and kids should follow their lead. Sanitizers should be their new tag along for when water isn’t available, make sure it contains at least 70% alcohol.
If your kid has to take the bus, then wipes should be their new best friend. Ask them to use these wipes in disinfecting surfaces such as door knobs and sink handles and cleaning their hands.
If You Care, Don’t Share
We have always encouraged kids to share their stuff with their friends, but now the time has come to tell them that sharing is no longer caring! Teach your kids that they should no longer hand out their stuff to anyone and that they should keep their belongings to themselves.
Label their supplies and items with their names on them, so that they don’t get mixed up with others’.
Better Safe Than Sorry
If your kid is sick, even if it’s a small cough, don’t send them to school. The time has also come for you to accept their excuses and listen to them if they complain of anything. Remember, it’s not only your kid’s life at stake, but hundreds others.
If your child suffers from a disease that makes them more prone to the virus and at a higher risk, consider professional home schooling and keep them safe at home.
We know how scared we all are but remember, your fatherly/motherly instinct will shield your kids’ from harms’ ways.
Get to Know Rogena Beyond Her Role as Fadwa
We sat with the beautiful Rogena, or shall we say, Fadwa? And had a delightful talk with her regarding her role in El Brens and got to know her better!
Don’t worry, we maintained social distance and followed the precautionary measures.
There’s no doubt that Rogena aka Fadwa has created a huge buzz around her character this Ramadan in the series ‘El Brens.’
She killed it and definitely gave a performance that we all admired. But before we get into her role this Ramadan, let’s get to know the real Rogena first!
First thing Rogena does in the morning is sit in the garden and prune her flowers! She calls that her daily ritual which she shares with her Instagram family.
Her favorite meal is basically anything with Bachamel in it and we couldn’t agree more! Who doesn’t love some creamy pastas?
We asked her about the first thing she would do after this quarantine is over and she said that thankfully, nothing much have changed for her.
“I’m coping really well with everything happening and I’m not upset, thank god.” She said.
“The one thing I can do is maybe travel.” She added.
We then asked about the destination she wishes to go to.
‘Lebanon.’ She said!
Explaining that she has yet an undone series she needs to shoot, and we can’t wait to hear more deets about it!
In her spare time, Rogena likes to read, prepare for a character, watch TV and talk to her besties! Gossips, maybe?
Her favorite actress is Soad Hosny, and her favorite actor is Al Pacino and her favorite movie is ‘Lost Love’ ‘الحب الصائع’ which comes as no surprise, as it’s one of Soad Hosny’s beautiful classics.
You would be surprised to know that Rogena has a daredevil side in her! She’s a risk taker and when asked about the most dangerous thing she has ever done, she said ‘jumping off a plane.!”
So yep, apparently in her spare time, she reads, she trains and casually parachute!
If Rogena weren’t an actress, she would have dedicated all of her time to her home and would have become a full time housewife and mother.
But we are glad to see her excelling in both!
Commenting on her killer role as Fadwa, Rogina said ‘I never expected this huge success for Fadwa but I had faith in god and that hard work pays off.”
She also admitted that Fadwa is the hardest character she has ever played.
It definitely was a hard character but no one would have played just as well! From one success to another, we salute Rogina for being the great actress that she is.
Till next time and next interview, we hope you enjoyed this one just like we did!
