Lebanon To Toughen Regulations On Unofficial Beauty Clinics

It’s about time the authorities decide to close down these beauty “mini-markets” spread around the country. I’ve heard of so many cases where patients sustained serious injuries in these parlors or even died in some case.
In response to the phenomenon, the Cabinet and the Health Ministry have recently put forward a draft law to be voted on by Parliament that addresses the issue.

U.S Military Assistance To The Lebanese Army

480 anti-tank guided missiles, more than 1500 M16-A4 rifles and mortars were delivered yesterday to the Lebanese Army in the presence of US Ambassador David Hale. The Ambassador seemed pretty confident that this is exactly what the Lebanese Army needs at the moment and said:

Roll Out the Ice Cream

Total Super Stage Video Compilation – Rally of Lebanon 2014

Check out this cool [compilation] done by our friends at Biser3a.com. To be honest, I went to the event yesterday and it was a bit boring. The track is way too long for a super stage and the drivers were going easy on their cars.

Michael Kors Opens Its First Store In Beirut

I’ve seen the brand in malls like ABC but this is the first standalone store in the country. Michael Kors is now open on Fakhry Bey Street in the Beirut Souks area.
I checked the official Michael Kors website and the Beirut store is still not added.
American fashion brand Michael Kors hosted a party Tuesday night for the opening of its first store in Lebanon.

Rayane Moussallem’s Great Documentary On The Intervention Of Politics and Religion In Lebanese Sports

[YouTube]
I really applaud Rayane for compiling all these events and speeches and coming up with this great documentary. Politics and religion are ruining sports in this country and we are all to blame for that. I’ve been raising this issue forever and asking to keep politics and religion away from basketball and football in Lebanon but as long as we have a corrupt system and powerless federations, then there’s no hope in any change.

Children Selling Flowers In Kaslik

I don’t know what’s the deal with kids selling flowers in Kaslik, but I spotted one of them sitting at Starbucks and texting on her phone all the time, while another one refused a nicely wrapped cookie that I had just bought from Starbucks. I don’t know what’s up with these kids, and what they’re doing on the street but I am not giving them anything anymore.

What We Need and Don’t Need In Lebanon

[YouTube]
We all want Muslims and Christians to love and respect each other in this country but the last thing we need are armed gunmen protecting religious shrines in the name of unity. We don’t need Muslims protecting Christians and vice versa, we need LEBANESE and only LEBANESE to protect their country regardless of their religion.
