#EndPolio: Vaccinate Your Children To Keep #Lebanon Safe

Polio is a highly infectious disease that affects children under 5 years of age. The disease was only found in 3 countries (Afghanistan, Nigeria and Pakistan) at the beginning of 2014 but it somehow reached Syria which prompted the Ministry of Public Health of Lebanon, along with the UNICEF, to launch national polio immunization campaigns.

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.

On Migration, UK has nothing against inferior species!


I am staying in Poland, come on over!

I admire HMA (her majesty's ambassador) to Lebanon Tom Fletcher, or rather - I admire Tom Fletcher from a different angle some other bloggers admire him. I admire him because he knew how to work the social media scene, how to whitewash history, how to dictate the views he wishes communicated in the digital sphere.

Wet Enough for You?

 Lest we ever complain that it didn’t rain enough; I think it just did. So much in fact that the drainage system couldn't handle it; the manhole covers got shoved aside by the force of the water. Got a video of it too, but that one takes too long to load (rain slows down the internet in my house too; don't ask me why)

FAP Lebanon Finally Makes it to 9GAG’s “Hot”


You can see the billboard under it has a tobacco ad, meaning that this photo was taken prior to March 2012 when the ban on tobacco advertising came into effect. As (like the French call it) an “internaut”, I chuckle every time I see FAP signs or ads. For the 0.01% of you of don’t know what “fap” means, it’s masturbating. That’s why people sometimes comment *fap fap fap* on something hot, or sarcastically for something unattractive.

The ad that goes wrong: self depreciation is an art.

I have recently come across a British show called "the play that goes wrong" - where, you guessed it, everything that could go wrong does goes wrong even more than Ziad Rahbani's "chi fechel". But what interested me the most what the ads they ran for the show inticing people to "save money - don't come", "starring Tom Cruise - subject to availability", "premium seats - only £3,950" or a strapline that went that the play was "starring no one famous", there was even logos of the "tony" "olivier" awards and underneath "they liked the show". Ads have appeared upside down in newspapers to emphasize that even the marketing was amateurish.

Lebanese Tries To Bribe A Kuwaiti Airport Staff, Gets Interrogated

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.

Redrock thinks outside of the unipole


So much for thinking outside the box, now is the time to think outside of the unipole. Lowe Pimo did a beautiful job illustrating the concept of "eco village" for Redrock (from Sayfco). Yes, that's a flock of birds you see protruding from the unipole (don't start shooting as a typical Lebanese please!). Whereas we have seen a lot of elements protrude from unipoles in the past it was mostly top of bottles or hairs of singers, so it's refreshing that such a concept could be executed.
