Emirati student is shot dead by police in Ohio



ABU DHABI // An Emirati student has been shot dead by a police officer in Ohio, the US.

Saif Nasser Mubarak Alameri, 26, was killed by a gunshot to the head in Hudson on Sunday, the Summit County medical examiner’s office said.

The Akron Beacon Journal reported that Mr Alameri had caused a car crash and ran away from the vehicle.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Hudson Police Department searched for him and eventually found him in nearby woods. The city of Hudson said that there was a struggle between an officer and Mr Alameri, and then shots were fired.

“A police officer caught up to Alameri, a struggle ensued and the officer opened fire, police reported,” the Journal said.

Police unsuccessfully performed first aid on Mr Alameri at the scene.

The officer was treated for minor injuries and is now on paid leave pending the results of the investigation.

Police said the car Mr Alameri was driving swiped with another vehicle and his car flipped over, according to witnesses.

“I just saw a horrible accident,” said one caller, describing how the car had flipped on to its roof. Another two callers described a similar situation.

Mr Alameri was studying law on a scholarship in America, and had completed his first year at Case Western Reserve University.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said it was closely following the investigation into the Mr Alameri’s death.

Mohammed Al Raisi, Undersecretary to the ministry, said: “In light of this follow-up, and after details of the painful incident are clarified by the authorities, the ministry will issue a more comprehensive statement at a later time.”

A hashtag for Mr Alameri was trending on Twitter last night as UAE social media users spread the news of his death.

Hudson, with a population of 22,000, is in north-eastern Ohio, about 50km from Cleveland.

Stuck in a job without a pay rise? Here's what to do

Chris Greaves, the managing director of Hays Gulf Region, says those without a pay rise for an extended period must start asking questions – both of themselves and their employer.

“First, are they happy with that or do they want more?” he says. “Job-seeking is a time-consuming, frustrating and long-winded affair so are they prepared to put themselves through that rigmarole? Before they consider that, they must ask their employer what is happening.”

Most employees bring up pay rise queries at their annual performance appraisal and find out what the company has in store for them from a career perspective.

Those with no formal appraisal system, Mr Greaves says, should ask HR or their line manager for an assessment.

“You want to find out how they value your contribution and where your job could go,” he says. “You’ve got to be brave enough to ask some questions and if you don’t like the answers then you have to develop a strategy or change jobs if you are prepared to go through the job-seeking process.”

For those that do reach the salary negotiation with their current employer, Mr Greaves says there is no point in asking for less than 5 per cent.

“However, this can only really have any chance of success if you can identify where you add value to the business (preferably you can put a monetary value on it), or you can point to a sustained contribution above the call of duty or to other achievements you think your employer will value.”

 

Water waste

In the UAE’s arid climate, small shrubs, bushes and flower beds usually require about six litres of water per square metre, daily. That increases to 12 litres per square metre a day for small trees, and 300 litres for palm trees.

Horticulturists suggest the best time for watering is before 8am or after 6pm, when water won't be dried up by the sun.

A global report published by the Water Resources Institute in August, ranked the UAE 10th out of 164 nations where water supplies are most stretched.

The Emirates is the world’s third largest per capita water consumer after the US and Canada.

ESSENTIALS

The flights 
Fly Etihad or Emirates from the UAE to Moscow from 2,763 return per person return including taxes. 
Where to stay 
Trips on the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian cost from US$16,995 (Dh62,414) per person, based on two sharing.

Need to know

The flights: Flydubai flies from Dubai to Kilimanjaro airport via Dar es Salaam from Dh1,619 return including taxes. The trip takes 8 hours. 

The trek: Make sure that whatever tour company you select to climb Kilimanjaro, that it is a reputable one. The way to climb successfully would be with experienced guides and porters, from a company committed to quality, safety and an ethical approach to the mountain and its staff. Sonia Nazareth booked a VIP package through Safari Africa. The tour works out to $4,775 (Dh17,538) per person, based on a 4-person booking scheme, for 9 nights on the mountain (including one night before and after the trek at Arusha). The price includes all meals, a head guide, an assistant guide for every 2 trekkers, porters to carry the luggage, a cook and kitchen staff, a dining and mess tent, a sleeping tent set up for 2 persons, a chemical toilet and park entrance fees. The tiny ration of heated water provided for our bath in our makeshift private bathroom stall was the greatest luxury. A standard package, also based on a 4-person booking, works out to $3,050 (Dh11,202) per person.

When to go: You can climb Kili at any time of year, but the best months to ascend  are  January-February and September-October.  Also good are July and August, if you’re tolerant of the colder weather that winter brings.

Do not underestimate the importance of kit. Even if you’re travelling at a relatively pleasant time, be geared up for the cold and the rain.
