Amal (Alameddine) Clooney Is London’s Most Powerful Woman Ahead of Victoria Beckham

Amal Alameddine, who recently got married to Georges Clooney, was ranked fourth according to The Evening Standard newspaper annual power ranking list, right after George Osborne, Boris Johnson and Demis Hassabis. I am not sure how credible this list is but she sure is a powerful and smart woman and deserves to be among the ten most influential Londoners.

She may have only just married Hollywood hot property George Clooney, but wife Amal Alamuddin is already the most influential woman in London, according to the London Evening Standard newspaper.
The newly married lawyer – who changed her name last week after marrying the US heartthrob in September – is at number four, five places ahead of international fashion mogul Victoria Beckham as they both head up the Top 10.
Amal, 36, and Victoria, 40, beat off competition from leading men like British Prime Minister David Cameron and world-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking and their equally-influential husbands were nowhere to be seen in the Top 20. [DailyMail]

Here’s a nice video on some of Beirut’s best street foods prepared by my good friend Anthony From NGNO. These little food gems are always more satisfying than any fancy restaurant you could go to.

The places mentioned in this video are Falafel Sahyoun, Karout Knefeh, Al Kalaa Chicken, Hanna Mitri’s ice cream place and Al Daoukieh and there are tons of others worth being highlighted.

I was checking Gino’s post on the Fap image on 9gag and noticed it’s the same picture Chahe posted four years ago and that was shared on the Chive. I am surprised it took that long to make it to 9gag.

There’s even a better Fap poster that I shared and that you can check [Here]. Make sure you read the comments on 9gag as they are funnier than the image.

According to Al-Anba2, a Lebanese was arrested after he tried to bribe a Kuwaiti airpot staff member. The passenger gave the employee 1500$ to let him in but he didn’t get away with it. Some Lebanese seem to believe they can buy their way out of everything, well that’s not the case.

Speaking of bribery and corruption, it is at an all-time high in Lebanon. If you are interested in looking at numbers, check out the Sakker el Dekkene initiative.
