Hussain Sajwani started Damac Properties with the aim to transform the architectural and infrastructural landscape of Dubai, and his vision has now turned into a reality. From the time Damac Properties started its operations in the year 2002, the company has been growing rapidly under the leadership of Hussain Sajwani.
After completing his school years in Dubai, he went to the United States, where he joined the University of Washington to study Economics and Industrial Engineering. After finishing his studies, he took the job of a contracts manager at a leading oil based firm named Gasco.
However, the entrepreneurial instinct of Hussain Sajwani didn’t let him do the job for long, and he started Al Jazeera Services. It is a catering and support services provider firm that continue to operate till date and manages over 200 projects currently.

It is a firm that has provided services to construction giants like Bechtel and even U.S. Military Service.
After successfully leading Al Jazeera Services, Hussain Sajwani thought about branching into new streams of revenue, and this is when he discovered and realized the potential in the real estate business of Dubai and the Middle East. He shifted back to Dubai and purchased a plot of land in the outskirts of the city. Soon after buying the plot, he in collaboration with the famous architects in the city designed a 35 story residential complex.
The Damac owner managed to market the project successfully among the affluent society of Dubai and sold off the project completely even before the first brick was led by the construction of the project. It is what marked the beginning of Damac Properties, and a new journey began for Hussain Sajwani.
He is also a highly passionate philanthropist and believes in giving back to the society. Hussain Sajwani donated AED 2 Million at an event recently to provide clean clothing to poor children. He has also collaborated with Donald Trump’s real estate firm to develop international level golf courses in his residential projects in Dubai.

Oncotarget’s, a peer reviewed English medical journal, first study published uncovered a few things i think e-cigarette companies wouldn’t want getting out. The results of the study stand as proof that e-cigarettes aren’t as safe as brands would have you believe. Although they do not produce tobacco smoke and secondhand smoke may be completely eliminated, e-cigarettes do contain nicotine and chemicals that are capable enough to cause bodily harm. Check the journal at SCImago Journal & Country Rank.
The e-liquid inside the e-cigarette is what’s behind the majority of damage reported in the study. Individuals who participated in the study had clear signs of gum soreness and inflammation.
Oncotarget caught a lot of backlash from e-cigarette smokers, criticizing it review process. Many of them felt the medical journal was nitpicking, but the truth is the truth.
Oncotarget is a weekly medical journal formed in 2010. In just one short year the medical journal became the number one ranking medical journal according to Thomson Reuters JCR Impact Factor.
