21/2/2017: Queen Rania honored sixty-seven schools as recipients of the Healthy Schools National Accreditation for the academic year 2015-2016. Under the patronage of Her Majesty, the Royal Health Awareness Society held an interactive two-day workshop at Al Bayader Secondary Vocational School for Girls to publically recognize the past academic year’s accredited schools.
The project aims to foster health conscious environments within Jordanian schools by ensuring their adherence to national health standards. The Queen congratulated the accredited schools, commending their efforts in elevating their students’ well-being and positively impacting their home and learning environments. She also underlined the importance of continuously reviving these accomplishments and enlarging the circle of success to encompass a greater number of participating schools.
Her Majesty commenced her visit with a stop at a healthy food preparation station headed by Chef Jamie Oliver’s Super Ambassador, Chef Mira Jarrar. She observed Chef Jarrar introduce the girls to basic healthy food preparation methods, and arbitrate a friendly competition between them. The school’s teachers were invited to join her in a brief and informal discussion on the necessity of promoting healthier practices within Jordanian schools. Parents and guardians also partook in a separate discussion with the queen. (Source: Petra)

Jain Zar is revealed to be the faction leader of the Eldar in Eternal Crusade.
Since I’m not familiar with EC mechanics, I don’t know if this means that some tart who donated enough will be able to play as our mythical ten thousand years old demigod momma or she will be just an overpowered friendly npc for eldar.
I’m hoping for the latter. Helping her to wreck some dumb raiding party at your home like it was with Thrall (maybe Overlord Saurfang is a better example since they both are adepts at cleaving shit) would be priceless.
