Zalfa Will Answer All Your Questions On #Law293 That Protects Women From Family Violence

Posted By :

Zallfa

Zalfa is a woman who lives in Lebanon and suffers, like many, from discrimination, violence and injustice. She’s here to help other victims understand the newly adopted Law 293 to protect women and other family members from family violence. Zalfa is an initiative from KAFA to inform women in Lebanon about their rights and legal choices while warning them against the legal loopholes that could hamper their full protection.

I think it’s very important for women to take legal action whenever they are abused for their sake and their children’s sake. I know it’s easier said than done and it takes a lot of courage specially in our society, but things are changing in the right direction and there are qualified NGOs and parties ready to assist every victim legally, financially and morally. We need more women to speak out and motivate others to do the same in order to spread further awareness and adopt a stricter law hopefully soon.

You can check out Zalfa’s Questions and Answers [Here]. LBCI News is also showing daily hints and tips from Zalfa as you can see below.

Beirut+TV is not yet another TV station in Lebanon. It’s a new animated web series that will tackle topics and situations that every Lebanese experiences in a way or another. I think there’s a lot of potential behind Beirut+TV and I have tons of ideas to share with the super talented Maya Zankoul, Tony of course and the whole WeZank team.

We saw a couple of episodes at the launch but the first one is only available for now. Stay tuned and keep checking [Beirut+TV] for further updates.

This is the first time I hear about James Jurdi. He’s a Lebanese-American actor and writer and is starring alongside Rob Lowe, Burt Reynolds and the hot Jessica Clark in his new movie “Pocket Listing”. Jurdi co-wrote and starred in three other movies, Price in 2007, Nocturnal Errands in 2012 and Reaper in 2014.

His new movie is coming out very soon in Lebanese theaters. I am definitely watching it as the trailer seems interesting.

Quick Review: Dumb and Dumber To

I don’t know how many of you remember the original “Dumb and Dumber” that was released back in 1994, but it was hilarious and a huge success. The prequel “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” that went out in 2003 and didn’t include Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels was a complete disaster though and I wasn’t expecting any new sequel after that, unless both original actors agreed to take part in it and that’s what happened.

“Dumb and Dumber To” brings back Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, aka Lloyd and Harry as they try to convince people 20 years later that “if they each had half a brain, together they would still only have half a brain”. It’s a fun movie to watch and if you liked the randomness of the first movie, you will not be disappointed with this one.

Grand Cinemas launched a new popcorn yesterday, the Air Popcorn which is a low-cholesterol and oil free brand of popcorn. I think it’s a smart idea specially when you’ve just had a heavy dinner and still want to have some popcorn or if you’re just on diet or have a high cholesterol. As far as the taste is concerned, the salt type is almost tasteless while the cheese version was saved by the cheese.
