George Clooney
We decided to be much more responsible, to avoid the danger. I won't go to South Sudan any more or the Congo, Amal will no longer go to Iraq and she'll avoid places where she knows she isn't welcome.feedback

We could relax completely without having to worry about a thing back home; it was reassuring knowing the place was lived-in and safe. He came to house-sit for us for almost four years – during which time we took trips to all sorts of places, including the Maldives and Bali.feedback

Albert Roca

Motivation is to play against Mohun Bagan. It's a team that everybody respects and this is a big motivation. We know we are out of title contention but we will try to win that game for sure. It's a difficult moment for us. Players are coming from the national team and we couldn't prepare the way we wanted to before this game. My team had seven players in the national team. But it's difficult to manage. I will try to press my players and make a good match.feedback

Mohamed Solih - Holiday Inn

It is very simple. The cow that gives more milk has to be fed more. So islands that pay tourism taxes should be a priority in shore protection initiatives by the government. Erosion on this island is very much connected to the development work done on the resort. Kandooma is a coral rock island, not a sand island like you see now. They dredged sand and pumped sand and reclaimed the beaches. After that, erosion became a big problem here.feedback

Mohamed Nizar

What is the lagoon now used to be the football field on this island. I have to leave this guesthouse if it keeps eroding. I am sure of it.feedback

Mohamed Shahid

We have had a lot of discussions with the local authorities on that side. We try to be diplomatic. We help them and they help us kind of a thing.feedback

Mohamed Shareef

If another five or so feet of beach erodes, the waves will be inside my house. If the government wants to do something, it should not be because tourists are now coming to this island.feedback

Mohamed Zahir - Ecocare

If the Maldives don't exist, we're not losing just 400,000 people. We're losing a nationality, an identity, a cultural history, a language, a script. We're losing the beaches. We're losing the coconut palms. We're losing everything.feedback

Hussain Yameen - Holiday Inn

Right now, we are trying to get some approval from the government. We have a plan on developing this island. The whole island will be protected.feedback

Islam Ahmed

This is a very fun, happy life. Anyone who has a bit of wealth is going to Malé to educate their kids. If I get enough money, I, too, will go to give my kid an education.feedback

Sobira Aboobukaru

It is worrying that we may be taken from here and put in tiny apartment boxes.feedback

Abdullah Yameen

They have planned a huge project for Faafu Atoll. All the charts and drawings have been completed.feedback

Mohamed Nasheed

I find it very difficult to believe this is a straightforward commercial enterprise. Usually you have to have a proper, transparent bidding process, but President Yameen has chosen to do it in the dark.feedback

Gerald Feierstein

There can also be no doubt that the not-too-subtle subtext of the king's tour is a signal that Saudi Arabia will preserve its flexibility when it comes to its dealings with the United States.feedback

Mohamed Nasheed

This very narrow version of Islam favors their authoritarian rule. It has been propagated in the Maldives for many years and has created a breeding ground for radical Islam.feedback

Mohamed Nasheed

It's one thing not to have democracy and freedom of expression, to have a dictator. But it's another thing to lose an atoll, to lose sovereignty. I am sure that the Maldivian people are very worried, and they may see how they want to push back these designs.feedback

Mohamed Nasheed

We do not want to sit in the middle of a Cold War in between countries.feedback

Thoriq Ibrahim

Climate change is happening but we are not leaving the Maldives to the waves. We are going nowhere. The dream [of making the Maldives carbon neutral] is over. We are looking to be a low-carbon country.feedback

Abdullah Yameen

What is about to happen [to Faafu atoll] is something that would feature the Maldives on the world chart more boldly than anything else.feedback

Shiham Adam

It is not going to happen next year. We have immediate needs. Development must go on, jobs are needed, we have the same aspirations as people in the US or Europe.feedback

Thoriq Ibrahim

With Nasheed it was a dream. We do not need cabinet meetings under water. We do not need to go anywhere. We need development.feedback

Mohamed Muizzu

A responsible opposition would always support what is good for people.feedback

Mohamed Muizzu

Relocated families will be offered free houses on larger islands. We need a lot of investment to provide all facilities to all islands. It is not sustainable to do this. Some islands have just a few hundred people. It is not feasible to keep them there. A lot of small islands face erosion and ground water contamination. They need sewerage networks and new harbours. The priority will be the capitals of atolls. Why not use them for tourism?feedback

Byrappa Venkatesh

Their numbers are declining due to habitat destruction and harvest by humans.feedback

Mona Rishmawi

So basically it's crippling freedom of expression including on the basis of defamation of religion, national security and social norms.feedback

Zaheena Rasheed

This is a final push to shut down the remaining media outlets. We have fought really hard. We are not giving up. We are going to contest the bill at the Supreme Court on its constitutionality.feedback

Jake Nelson - AAA Chicago

It's completely normal for drivers to experience anger behind the wheel, but we must not let our emotions lead to destructive choices. Don't risk escalating a frustrating situation because you never know what the other driver might do. Maintain a cool head, and focus on reaching your destination safely.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

If the governments can't save the planet, business will have to save the planet.feedback

Bernard Savage

We are not taking sides but, as the High Representative Cathy Ashton has made clear, what we support is the constitutional order, the rule of law and the continuance of democracy, and we expect all parties to refrain from violent actions and inflammatory rhetoric in order to ensure that the democratic transition of the Maldives continues.feedback

Bernard Savage

Most tourists arrive in the Maldives into Hulhule Island, which is a separate island opposite Male, and then go from there directly to the resorts. Resorts in the Maldives are all in what are classified as 'uninhabited' islands; there are no Maldivian nationals living there.feedback

Layla Santo

Unfortunately sometimes we do have medical cases, emergencies, accidents, illness. Our reps are there to support the clients, assist them over to the hospital if needed, and basically just to offer support, guidance and help if and when needed.feedback

Seamus Kearney - Euronews

European officials say if their proposals come into force, some 120 million people would benefit from improved consumer protection. And that would especially be the case for those booking holidays online.feedback

Emile Sabatier

As our children are young, we waited before taking a plane. We told ourselves now we want to travel to see something other than Europe and France. . We told ourselves that we would take an all-inclusive package holiday, with one unique contact, so we know how to solve all the questions, and that everything is pre-arranged, so we can have a good holiday and have peace of mind.feedback

Layla Santo

But all our reps are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. So (it's) just peace of mind for the clients that when they are here on holiday, if anything does happen, or they need any support or any assistance, there's always somebody there for them actually in the resort.feedback

Emile Sabatier

Exactly. To have one contact and be able to turn to that person in case of a problem, and not to worry about things when heading off on holiday.feedback
