Lebanese Civil Defense volunteers Have Every Right To Protest

[YouTube]
I am not for implementing the new wage scale proposed by the Unions but fire fighters have every right to protest and block roads. These men have been working and risking their lives for years for a miserable $200 monthly nothing in return. I don’t think it’s too much if they turn them into full employees and finance a much needed restructuring of the Civil Defense units and branches.
Civil Defense volunteers are not government employees who take bribes and do nothing all day. They volunteered to save lives and should not treated that way. If a salary increase is not feasible, they should be at least equipped with the proper tools to do their job.

The Grandparents Frame by JOHNSON’S Baby

My brother and sister-in-law live abroad and just had a baby girl a month back. Ever since, my parents who are now grandparents ask me almost every day if my brother sent me any new pictures or videos of the baby. I taught them how to use Skype on the iPad but the picture is not always crystal clear because of the internet connection, and it’s a hassle to regroup pictures from different sources in one place, so this Grandparents App is a really nice and simple idea.

Let’s Have Some Sushi Cupcakes

Have you heard about the edible cupcake wrappers made from Nori seaweed? Traditionally these wrappers are made from paper or plastic, but things are changing… you can now eat the cupcake and the wrapper with it. I am not sure seaweed would be a good mix with cake, but I can imagine some rice and raw fish on them, some vegetable maybe?

Lebanese Parliament Votes On New Rent Law – Old Rent Law Abolished At Last

I really can’t believe it took this long for the parliament to drop the ridiculous old rent law, but they’ve finally done and I think the new law proposed is fair for both tenants and owners. For those of you unaware of the old rent law, it was enacted after World War II and is one of the weirdest laws still in existence, as it gave more rights to the tenants over the owners, and kept the rents at the same fixed price as originally agreed. As a result, there are still people paying 400$ a year for an apartment in Beirut while market rent prices are at their highest level.
