Lebanon Won Yet Another Award That I Can’t Find Online

Posted By :

It’s always great to share news about awards and achievements won by Lebanese abroad but I’ve learned out of experience to verify the story before spreading the word. Yesterday I was reading in Annahar about a Lebanese project that won an Energy Globe Award 2016 against 1700 other projects presented.

click bait

This would have been a major achievement and I am sure that Lebanese are capable of doing so, but I couldn’t find any reference or source proving that we won that award. The Energy Globe Award is real and is considered the most prestigious environmental prize worldwide. It basically “distinguishes projects regionally, nationally and globally that conserve resources such as energy or utilize renewable or emission-free sources”.

Every year, the Energy Globe Award is awarded in the 5 categories Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Youth to projects yet Lebanon was not among the winners this year. He was not even among the finalists.

What we did win though is the National Energy Globe Award which is presented to the best project submission of each country. I have no idea how many Lebanese projects were submitted but here what this project is about:

Nutrients are discharged from rivers, inhabited areas and industry, which leads to eutrophication eventually followed by environmental deterioration, and large amounts of carbon dioxide are produced through energy production and emitted to the environment. This year’s National Winner of the Energy Globe Award in Lebanon established a delivery chain for microalgae to ensure the use of micro algae for the production of biodiesel. The project contributes to an enhanced energy self-sufficiency based on renewable resources. Congratulations to your initiative!

I loved the idea but it will be very hard to implement when you have a government who couldn’t figure out how to pick up garbage from the streets for eight months and doesn’t mind dumping garbage in the sea.

PS: If anyone has additional information about this award please do share.

#BlogWaladi: Brian’s #CheerioChallenge Picture on MTV’s Connected Segment

Posted By :

brian connected

So I decided to do the #CheerioChallenge with Brian today in the afternoon and next thing you know the picture got featured on MTV’s Connected segment tonight. It even got to the top posts under #CheerioChallenge on Instagram. The challenge was started by Life of Dad and is quite simple: Wait for your baby to fall asleep, then build a stack of Cheerios on said child and post the picture online.

I only stacked five Cheerios on Brian’s nose before he woke up but I am going to give it another try tonight since I got challenged by Jimmy who stacked twelve cheerios lol!

Many thanks to MTV & Jerry for this feature!

Getting Ready for EURO 2016

euro 2016

Euro 2016 games kick off tomorrow. Football fans are overjoyed while non-football fans will suffer for a whole month. Personally speaking, I’m super excited and want to see Germany lift the trophy after the World Cup two years ago, while my wife couldn’t care less and can’t stand football.

I found this hilarious song about a husband warning his wife not to bother him this whole month and how she responded. Check it out and send it to your husbands/wives or to your football-hating fan friends 🙂

Is This The Cheesiest Article Ever? (You Must Read The Translation)

cheesy

This is by far the cheesiest article I’ve ever read this year, if not ever. I tried hard to read it with a straight face but I couldn’t stop laughing at every quote.

I wish the couple all the best but I would have never let anyone write something like that for my wedding. You can read the whole thing [here].

If you can’t understand Arabic, my good friend and blogger Rania from transpremium.com translated it for me and it sounds even better in English!

Happiness Still Prevails among the “Lebanon Files” Family

In the presence of many media and political figures, Nathalie tightly gripped the heart of colleague George, placing the latter under arrest for the sweet crime of deliberate and premeditated love.
George did not conceal his doing. In fact, he pleaded guilty to sneaking into Nathalie’s heart and occupying the vast majority of it.
In a public hearing, the final verdict was issued yesterday on George, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in Nathalie’s golden heart, with the blessing of a group of family members and relatives and with as a witness the sky of Kfarhbab which was dressed in its brightest colors until after midnight on Sunday night.
The attendees cheered for the justice of love, dancing for a long time to the tunes of the hearts of the newlyweds who then finally lifted the anchor of bachelorhood, for their love to embark on a journey towards the islands of stability, security and holy partnership.
Lebanon Files blesses the marriage of colleague George and his wife Nathalie, and wishes them a long life crowned with joys and happiness.

Sagesse Honorary President Says They Threw Holy Water On Riyadi Official

I was actually defending Sagesse against the decision taken by the Lebanese Federation and I was hoping they’d file a proper complaint but this is just crazy. I can’t believe this guy, who happens to be Sagesse’s honorary president, is justifying fans throwing water bottles by saying the water is holy.

What was he thinking? I really hope he was joking.

The Most Frequently Asked Question in Lebanon: Dawle Aw Moteur?

Posted By :

dawle

For me, it’s even more complicated than Dawle Aw moteur, since we still don’t have our own circuit breaker (disjoncteur) and are using the main construction site one that powers three buildings.

I have no idea what’s that campaign about. I hope it’s not another 24/7 electricity campaign because the last time we had one, electricity got even worse.
