After posting yesterday that MTV’s Talk of the Town has been stopped, I got confirmation from a user (Thanks Carl) and a friend that the show will be back next Thursday. Apparently, the show’s director Bassem Christo has confirmed the news.
Lebanon still has a chance to qualify to the 2014 World Cup as Uzbekistan defeated Iran surprisingly 1-0 in Tehran. I have to say the game was poor from both sides but Qatar were the better side towards the end and scored a beautiful goal from a 30m shot.
Here are the standings from the group Lebanon is in. [Group A]
As I had mentioned earlier, Jill Kelley hails from a Lebanese family (Khawan) that emigrated to Philadelphia in the 1970s. She worked as an unpaid social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa and used to host events at her million-dollar Bayshore Boulevard home. Jill & her husband Dr. Scott Kelley were good friends of the Patreus family. She has a twin sister Nathalie, an older sister Caroline and a brother called David Khawam. This is what he had to say when interviewed about his sister:
“This is something that’s going to brand her for life,” David Khawam, Kelley’s brother, told TODAY. “My sister, number one, is a mother. OK, she has three kids. She’s extremely dedicated to those kids. Number two, she’s a wife. She’s extremely dedicated to her husband. And he to her.” [Link]
So far, there hasn’t been any proof showing that Jill was Patreus’ second love, but the investigation that followed reveleaded some flirtatious emails between her and another U.S General, John Allen, commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

As posted earlier last week, The Lebanese National Football team will play a decisive World Cup Qualifying game against Qatar today on November 14 at 4:45pm at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha. Lebanon needs to come back with 3 points in order to keep its chances in the final round of World Cup Qualification alive.
I don’t know who’s stupid enough to go out the wrong way on a highway but everything’s possible in Lebanon. For those of you who missed it, there’s another oversized “Wrong Way” road sign near La Cite (see below pic).
