The ironic part is that instead of revolting against their municipalities and doing something to stop this pollution, the people in Zouk are actually building new apartments facing the power plant and selling them at crazy prices, and the worst part of all is that people are buying!
That’s not a shop’s window but the AUB Lost & Found office. They keep things for years there and as a result the collection is growing bigger and bigger.
I can’t believe that many students lose their stuff and don’t go looking for them. Maybe the AUB administration should consider giving some stuff away to homeless people or use them for an auction and donate the money to charity?
I was surprised to find an email from The Daily Star today, it seems somehow I got added to their mailing list and they sent the email above to everyone on their mailing asking them to check out the website. Issue is I didn’t sign up their mailing list and worst of all there isn’t an unsubscribe button or link in their email which is extremely unprofessional. I even sent a reply back saying “UNSUBSCRIBE” but the email bounced back since they sent out their advert from an email that doesn’t receive mail! I hate being spammed! The Daily Star if you are reading this, UNFUCKINGSUBSCRIBEME!
I was just saying two weeks ago how Lebanese fans are gaining more interest in the Spanish league and El ClÃ¡sico [Link] and what I saw yesterday in Down Town Beirut was enough to convince me that there’s a Barca & Real Madrid mania spreading all across the country.
I shot the video above after Messi scored the first goal against Real Madrid. You would think it’s some party but not at all, those are Barca fans dancing the dabke. Restaurants in Down Town Beirut were as crowded as during the World cup yesterday.
As far as the game is concerned, I have to say the referee yesterday reminded me of the one that directs the basketball games in Lebanon. I second Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho that something’s not right and there should be measures taken to stop those bad calls. How the hell was that a red card against Pepe? WTF was the referee thinking?
Also, I think Dani Alves should be banned for 1 game for being such an awful cheat.
Here’s an image of the tackle that earned Pepe a red card.
This weekend there’s going to be a huge UFC fight between Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre vs Jake Shields. What a lot of people might not know is that his head trainer, the guy behind GSP is a Lebanese called Firas Zahabi. You can watch him talk about GSP’s training in the video above, it’s from the first episode of UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs. Shields. The video should start from 2:42 since that’s when Firas comes in. You can check him out on twitter by clicking [Here]
I was on my way back from the North when I saw parachutes in the sky near Batroun. I always loved going skydiving or parachuting so I checked online to see if anyone does those activities in Lebanon and found out we have a Lebanese Parachute Association.
They have a website and offer tandem jumps as well as skydiving lessons, but the skydiving lessons are done outside Lebanon as the sport is still not legal in Lebanon.
I’m always worried about the safety measures when it comes to doing risky sports in Lebanon, so if anyone knows anything about the LPA or tried parachuting before, I would be grateful if they shared their experience since I am very eager to try them out.
