They are talking about encapsulating Dubai with a giant dome like glass where by Dubai will generate his own “temperate weather” when the rest of the world will succumb to harsh pollution.
Again, it is what I heard from the grapevine.
I heard the Saudis were thinking about building a dome and air conditioning an entire city, but that was a while ago and I think it turned out to be too expensive or some such thing.

Dubai is the place to go if you want fresh young meat or other things that are illegal pretty much everywhere else - young boys, young girls, drugs, whatever.

The "tourists" are happy. The country makes heaps of money. The government turns a blind eye. Everybody happy. Well, almost everybody.
The Sun of Ages Past
Now came the sinking
Of the sun of ages past
Into the depth of flames
Burning red, a ball of fire A lone wolf howled
As if forsaken by the night Then followed a dreadful silence
Where fear stretched seconds into centuries Reluctant time
Afraid of the duel Between itself and the formidable
Sheikh Maktoum, first among heroes In all his kinsmen's triumphs
He has a share His virtuous intentions
Deep-rooted as the mountains Supreme in rank and beneficence
The people follow his lead His generosity aids the needy
Flows to right and left His name shines forth with the nobility of his ancestors and alliances
All people of good deeds Maktoum, so protective that those close
Love him with unswerving loyalty Maktoum, so fearsome that his foes
Are driven mad with terror Maktoum, a true Arab
From a house of honour and prestige
The succession of nights astonishes
A thousand years have passed
In those still to come
Your excellence will never diminish Time fears your presence
But the people come to you from near and far The doors of your house stand wide open
For your charity has no parallel For good reason is trust placed in you
You rule with a justice ideal
Your name is so dear to my heart
And encircles my head like a crown
Oh fire, extinguish
Oh fire, extinguish by my tears your flames
Quench the inferno inside sheltered
The heat of flames in my heart over you prevailed
And I conceal the hell, fearing people may know
Through the night, my eye the anguish of longing endures
For an eye unseen by other eyes
Fuse embers with your embers and weep
Mightier than a volcano in heart of one forlorn
Turned ashes of yearning hotter than your wood
In a heart stolen by eyes and pierced
If only time drove me away from your bond
Neither cohere to you through a promise
Nor our tribe seek from your tribe
Closer than the closest with you to be
See my soul, ruined by you
And my heart offered itself on whetted edge
Enraptured, I sing from your love and delight
And perfect tunes in every melody
Nostalgia and weeping because of you
When combined tears with flames, aroused passions
It is not permitted for individuals to kiss publically, and you will not find any nude beaches or communities in the United Arab Emirates.
(although if in the limits of dubai, it is not implemented.... but still)
Being with the Opposite Sex
It is not permitted for a male and female to share a closed space (a flat, room, tinted car, etc) away from the sight of other people, unless they are blood relatives or legally married. According to the Islamic law governing the Emirates, offenders will be being jailed and deported, and possibly lashed.

I think of Dubai kind of like an obscure rapper on MTV cribs. I wonder what Dubai will look like when the rest of the world finally syphons the middle east dry of all of its oil.

If you are looking for the "elites", they are where they have always been, and always will be: some examples being New England, New York, Washington area, Tuscany, Monaco, Switzerland, London, southern England, Southern France, Paris, Austria etc.
They aren't that hard to find...
