GoPro Camera Records Amchit Motorcycle Crash

Posted By :

A motorist caught on his GoPro a bike running into someone crossing the Amchit highway. Luckily no one was hurt in the accident and the biker explained in a comment that he wasn’t driving at a very high speed and was surprised by the person crossing the road.

To be honest, they did look like they were going a bit fast but the blame is on the guy crossing the road and the authorities for not installing pedestrian bridges on the way. Nevertheless, even if there are no pedestrian crossings on the highway, you have to be crazy to cross that highway.

The White Face Of Lebanon: A Video That Sums Up This Year’s Gorgeous Winter Season

We’ve seen Lebanon’s natural beauty through the eyes of Lebanese water skiing champion Silvio Chiha during summer and now here’s another stunning video that perfectly sums up this year’s winter season. I took few screenshots from the video but I recommend that you watch the whole thing in HD. It’s totally worth it!

The video was produced by my talented friend Charbel Bouez (Charbel Bouez Visual Communication) and directed by Ed Yazbeck (Athlete Management: Sportscode).

Garbage Crisis in Beirut Back in The Old Days

Posted By :

aub trash

This is an old interview with an AUB student (Engineer) talking about a garbage crisis at the time (Not sure about the year), and asking people to wrap their garbage properly and not throw them in the streets randomly.

Funnily enough, the journalist is asking him if burning the garbage can help them (she’s serious) and he answers that there’s no need to as long as the garbage is being collected every day and dumped in the sea!

You can’t really blame them as there wasn’t much awareness in the world at the time (assuming these were the 60s or 70s), but the shocking part is seeing people nowadays still burning garbage and dumping them in the sea. What’s even more shocking is having incompetent and ignorant ministers and officials still suggesting hazardous solutions to the garbage crisis instead of promoting recycling.

Municipalities are Also to Blame For The Garbage Crisis

Posted By :

The majority of municipalities in Lebanon are to blame for the garbage crisis as much as the Lebanese government is. They’ve been doing very little to manage and recycle waste throughout the years and the end result was more than 700 illegal and unsafe dump sites. Things got even worse after the 8-month still ongoing garbage crisis when municipalities resorted to opening new unsafe dump sites and burning garbage randomly.

Municipal elections are happening soon and people should hold accountable those who turned valleys and mountains into dump sites, those who leave open manholes and conduct lousy and hazardous road works etc. Municipalities, at least most of them, are failing big time in Lebanon and the below videos by LADE are highlighting this reality as well as the importance of holding municipal elections on time.

We Finally Have A Kickass Tourism Video In Lebanon

Posted By :

Ever since I started writing on the blog, I’ve been criticizing most of the Ministry of Tourism videos and campaigns because they were bad, but things have improved drastically ever since the LiveLoveLebanon campaign was launched and the below 5-minute video is one of the best tourism videos, if not the best, we’ve had in Lebanon in the past 10 years!

Lebanon looks absolutely breathtaking in this unprecedented aerial footage. You will see the Phoenician Tyr port, Saida’s sea castle, the authentic Shouf, the heart of Beirut, the shores of Jbeil and Batroun, Keserwan’s stunning nature, Tripoli, Baalbeck, the majestic Cedars and others in this amazing video.

The whole thing is just perfect and makes you proud to be Lebanese.

40m-long Highline In Tannourine: The First In Lebanon

Posted By :

highline

Check out this short video shot by Yann Traboulsi and Omar Nassar highlining over the village of Tannourine el Tahta. I don’t recall ever seeing a highline in Lebanon so this might just be the first and it’s pretty cool, despite the many falls. Highline is a balance sport that consists of walking through a rope clamped between two high points.

I hope these guys set up high lines in other spots and shoot longer and cooler videos. For those interested, they also shared on Vimeo technical details on how they set up the high line.
