Yemen recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, on April 10. Half of all medical facilities in the country are not functioning, so it is not clear how much testing for the virus is available.
The country, already the poorest in the Middle East before its civil war started five years ago, is also badly positioned to treat victims of the respiratory virus, while protecting its health care workers.

#Khat (Catha edulis) is banned in many countries of the world, but it is still freely available on the streets of Yemen and East Africa. Do you support its ban in the latter countries? Any justification?
#Cathinone is a schedule I drug in #USA, #amphetamine is Schedule II. When you compare potency, amphetamine is more potent. Amphetamine is synthetic, but cathinone is unstable and degrades to less potent chemicals in a matter of few hours. Do you see the scheduling as #scientific or #political? Even #Britain has banned khat on political ground, when scientific information was against the ban.

The fact that the US martyred Kasım Süleymani, one of Iran's most important commanders, points out that the balance and policies will change in the Middle East. Can Iran's attitude to terrorist organizations, which threaten Iran primarily, change? Can it damage the US policies in the Middle East? What kind of new policies can it pursue in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan, where it is effective? What kind of new and more visible actions could he take in his interest in Israel? Would this powerful attack on Iran make his policies more acceptable in the Islamic world? Can there be a positive change in the perspectives of the states on the axis of Islam? Has Iran's style of administration been reinforced as a result of this attack?
Relevant answer
Answer
1 - I agree with that "Iran will not launch an operation".
2- But, Iran will use Shiites in Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq.
3 - I agree with that "their policies will not change their position and acceptability among Islamic countries". Because the ennemosity against Sunnies is greater than its ennemosity against USA and EU". So its wars will turn to that side, if there is no problem with the (american guardian).
4- I agree with that "Iran could perhaps turn to diplomacy again through the EU".

Some papers (eg Saudi Epidemiology Bulletin 1995; WHO report 1995) report the presence of Aedes albopictus in Saudi Arabia, but there could be a mixing up with Aedes unilineatus. Can anybody confirm the presence of Aedes albopictus in Saudi Arabia and in Yemen? Alternatively, can anybody send some specimens that look like Aedes albopictus for morphological or molecular identification?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Dr. Francis,
Sometimes ago I wanted to answer this ques., but I thought it was out of date to answer and no longer needed. Now I noticed some colleagues are still commenting, so I must give my opinion. Regarding the existance of Ae. albopictus in Saudi Arabia, I strongly beleive that it is not prevalent in this country. I worked there for more than 20 years (1999 - 2019) surveying and identifying mosquito species in various parts of the country. I have never ever come across a single specimen of this species. During this time, I identified more than 50 000 mosquito specimens (adults & larvae) as Ae. aegypti beside other species searching for albopictus without success. Those, who claim that they found specimens of albopictus, need to confirm their finding and further surveys need to be conducted to prove their presence.
Thank you....

Hi everyone, We plan to conduct a study on knowledge and awareness about congenital cytomegalovirus among health workers in Yemen.
Can anyone help us to prepare the questionnaires?
What questions should we ask about?
What statistical tests should we do in data analysis?
Relevant answer
Answer
i would address any deficiency in knowledge also and equally with research on current thinking, views, beliefs, etc, to understand why the knowledge deficiency exists in the first place.
i suppose research into the knowledge of healthcare workers regarding the disease would reveal whether the knowledge gap (also) exists with healthcare workers.
at the same time, i revert back to social factors - how serious the disease is taken, etc. the social factors that permit the disease to persist.
you may not be able to resolve the matter with one research study only.
examples of interview questions that would reveal knowledge, thinking, and perceptions regarding the disease, would include:
- do you know someone with the disease?
- how has the disease affected you or your family?
- how dangerous or risky do you belief the disease to be?
- do you believe the disease can be prevented?
- what do you see as the remedy or cure for the disease?
- have you considered any steps to prevent the disease?
also from these questions, some of the propositions are that either the population/ women are not impacted extensively by the disease - the disease is not close enough to them to really take it seriously. a disease typically become common knowledge, if enough people are affected by it. or, that they dont believe the disease can be cured or prevented - part of the knowledge gap you highlight.
i am not sure you need any true statistical test when surveying healthcare workers. you would make sure you have a proper representation in your sampling, or substantiate a non-random sampling technique.
you would use descriptive statistics to analyze and unpack the results.
you can test across clusters or groups within the data. but a lot will only emerge after having obtained the data, i believe.
if the disease is attributed to lack of awareness or knowledge, what about alternative methods to raise awareness, other than healthcare workers? for instance, what about a national awareness campaign?
how well researched or documented is the prevention of the disease - is it a straightforward or complicated matter? this too would impact healthcare workers' knowledge.

According to the Yemeni student’s union in China there are nearly 3000 Yemeni students here in China studying in different levels and majors.
Any answers are highly appreciated.
Relevant answer
Answer
Conflict in the nation of Yemen does not only effect those residing in Yemen but also effects those Yemeni citizens living abroad (be they students, teachers, researchers, or workers) as they are being worried about family members and the whole nation. As for students, this worry leads to having psychological stresses and tensions that prevent them from realizing their academic goals. In effect, they struggle a lot for resolving such intrapersonal conflict (e.g. thinking of achieving their academic goals, and thinking of their families and homeland safety). And this intrapersonal conflict leads to poor decision making, dissatisfaction with one's achievements, and some emotional damage. However, it is important to think of techniques that help those students to resolve such intrapersonal conflict. Among many, reminding oneself of the main purpose of their being abroad, searching for people who are welling to collaborate with you, and thinking positively are all strong techniques for avoiding or at least decreasing conflict (intrapersonal conflict in particular), and for achieving one's academic goals.

I always read some online headlines in Arabic on an attractive issue and click the link and find no relation between the headline which comes to my mind and the news. They choose a headline to attract many readers and they do.
Let me give you an example to make the point clear.
I saw a link headlined "Obama is wearing a Yemeni dress" When I clicked the link, I found that the news is about "Mlaik Obama who is in Africa" and not about Barack Obama.
Another example is " Urgent News! the son of Saleh (the former president of Yemen) was killed". When I clicked the link, I found that the killed one is a son of another Saleh and not the son of president Saleh.

Today, after successful elections in Venezuela, boycotted by the US backed opposition, we are told that:
"The US vice-president Mike Pence, described the vote as a “sham” which was “neither free nor fair”, while in a separate statement, the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, said the US “will take swift economic and diplomatic actions to support the restoration of their democracy.”
Also today we are told that following the unilateral US tearing up of the international treaty with Iran :
"Mike Pompeo has threatened Iran with the “strongest sanctions in history” if it does not comply with a list of a dozen US demands. In a speech that attempted to lay out the Trump administration’s strategy on Iran after quitting the nuclear deal it agreed with other major powers in 2015, the secretary of state warned that the US would not just reimpose all the sanctions that were in place before the deal, but also pile additional punitive measures.
The Iranian regime should know this is just the beginning,” Pompeo said. The speech did not explicitly advocate regime change, but in remarks immediately afterwards Pompeo suggested that it would be up to the Iranian people to end the US pressure campaign by changing their own government.“I can’t put a timeline on it, but at the end of the day, the Iranian people [advised by the CIA] will decide the timeline,” Pompeo said at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank in Washington. “The Iranian people will get to make a choice about their leadership. If they make the decision quickly that will be wonderful. If they choose not to do so, we will stay hard at this until we achieve the outcomes that I set forth.”
Among the 12 conditions laid down by Pompeo were: demand Iran to give a full account of its alleged past work on nuclear weapons development; stop all uranium enrichment; halt launches of nuclear-capable ballistic missiles; end its support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad;(??) withdraw all forces under Iranian command from Syria; and end support for Houthi rebels in Yemen.

I agree largely with Mr. Botchway's line of thought being a Retired Marine Veteran on the tactics and measures the current administration is applying. I fear what is being lost is clear-headed thinking and a reasonable diplomatic approach that attempts to change or sway the ideology behind the unsavory behavior conducted by those who would do us and our allies harm. You have to have a thorough understanding of the people and their way of life, before you can attempt any measure at changing their behavior.
Furthermore with the manner that our current President is going about breaking agreements and disrupting long established relationships with our allies he no longer has any credibility with the free-world. Reputational consequences will have long and lasting effects and will be an impediment to getting others to comply with the current administrations wishes. You have to have the ability to talk to people with mutual respect of their sovereign and positions and then seek a solution that will be a "win-win" for both or all parties involved. Talking down and bullying is never going to accomplish anything in our modern society.

Mohsen, I think it corresponds to the geological formation known as karst , which geological origin is by transformation of underground deposits of gypsum. We have a similar phenomena in South Mendoza Province, Argentina. Two giant open-sky holes in the Salado river valey. Both of them correspond to the karst phenomenon called in Spanish "dolina" caused by the transformation of underground gypsum deposits that, due to the of the filtrations and groundwater produce a dissolution of the mineral and enormous caverns are formed below the surface, the land slowly sinks, causing a constant growth of the characteristic cones. The biggest one has 180 m of diameter, 80 m depth from surface to the water level, and a 20 m the deepest water depth. Let me share two pictures from websites.

Civil societies in Yemen have always played a crucial role in providing services the central government was unable to. Often collaborating with International NGOs. While tribes and civil societies may work jointly, they are two different entities that current Yemen are in need of. Civil societies are historically politically oriented and affiliated to major parties, and to some extent follow the guidance of the central power. Tribes are often playing as domestic opposition to the central government. I would argue that the synergy of both civil societies (political support) and tribes (local support) is vital to integrate for those who want to reduce tensions among groups...but not only...

I am trying to investigate the potential problems of the UK embedding troops in foreign forces, especially US forces, in areas where the UK has not declared itself at war - such as Syria before the parliamentary vote or within US troops in Camp Lemonnier. Does anyone know any experts or work done on this? 
Relevant answer
Answer
 Thank you very much, I will read this. Unfortunately the UK case is more complicated than that, declarations of war are one of the last remaining Royal Prerogative powers (decided by the Prime Minister on behalf of the monarch). However, within the last 10-20 years a Parliamentary War Powers Convention has developed, whereby even though it is not a formal law the Prime Minister is now  expected to ask Parliament before committing troops. The problem is that there are so many uncertainties about what requires authorisation and many deployments are able t be undertaken without Parliament's consent - such as embedded troops.
What restraints are there is the US around operations short of war - such as refuelling the Saudi-led coalition?

I research the syntactic structure of Mehri language in Yemen, the minority language that related to the old Semitic languages.
Relevant answer
Answer
   Dear Saeed al-Qumairi,
   I am not a linguist but I have used linguistic Semitologist works. I suppose my answer is not quite up to date, but you may wish to check some older literature (on the other hand the progress in Semitic linguistics is rather slow as there are very few universities in the world that still keep departments or rather chairs of Semitics. Mine (Uppsala University, Sweden) is one of them, but none of my colleagues carries on research in South Semitic languages, where MSAL, non-direct descendants of the ESA (Epigraphic South Arabian, a.k.a. Sabean, a.k.a. Sayhadic) belong. Please note that these – Mehri, Harsusi, Jibbali (older name: Shhauri), Hobyot, Soqotri, all except Mehri on the verge of extinction - should not be confused with the (North) Arabic dialects spoken in the region, as one of the respondents suggested in his answer.
   In any case I would suggest that you start checking what is the state of studies in the area you are interested in from the following paper:
   Simeone-Senelle, Marie-Claude, „The Modern South Arabian languages“, [in:] The Semitic languages, edited by Robert Hetzron, (Routledge Language Family Descriptions), London: Routledge, 1997, pp. 378-423;
    Since you say that you are interested in Semitic linguistics in general, I add that you will find in the same book chapters/papers devoted to other Semitic languages as well as to their general classification.
   You may also check:
   Lipinski, Edward, Semitic languages: outline of a comparative grammar, second edition, (Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta, 80), Leuven: Uitgeverij Peeters en Departement Oosterse Studies, 2nd ed. 2001 (1997);
   and:
   Semitic Linguistics: The State of the Art at the Turn of the Twenty-First Century, edited by Shlomo Izre’el, (Israel Oriental Studies, 20), Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns, 2002,
