Ekhirta Ata3it: MARCH And Lucien Bou Rjeily’s Play On Censorship Was Approved!

I’ve posted about this matter less than a year ago and asked the head of the censorship bureau to look at the bigger image and let the Lucien Bourjeily play pass and be the first one to attend it.
Censorship is wrong as we should be given the right to choose what to watch, read and listen. In case you missed my article, you can read it [Here].

Gebran Tueni Foundation Photo Contest

I love and admire Gebran Tueni and I like the fact that the Gebran Tueni Foundation is launching such a contest but they should have done an extra effort and made it more appealing and interesting. There are no guidelines or rules, the contest is way too broad and has no theme, the poster is dull, the contact email is @gmail and the Gebran Tueni Foundation website is outdated and doesn’t even include the contest.

24 Syrian Babies Are Born Every Day In Lebanon

31,000 Syrian babies were born between March 2011 and September 2014 in Lebanon according to this report. This is yet another alarming number for the Lebanese authorities and the Syrian refugees as well. However, it’s never too late to start building proper refugee camps and setting proper guidelines and launching awareness campaigns for all the refugees.

Where Lebanon Stands From The Ebola Outbreak

The Modeling of Biological and Socio-Technical Systems at Northeastern University in Boston published a list showing the countries in which Ebola is most likely to show up. The scientists used Ebola disease spread patterns and airline traffic data to come up with this table but keep in mind that this is the risk of a single imported case, not the risk of an outbreak.

What Liz Sarkisian can teach Amal Clooney



And so it happened, the honeymoon is over. I mean literally. A woman goes to a honeymoon, her husband leaves early to start working again, and she goes back to her career and travels to Athens alone. Sounds bleak doesn't it?
Well, let's put things in perspective a bit.

DIVVY Review

I don’t usually think about a review too much, I just open a new tab and start writing. But, with Divvy, it was hard just placing it in a category to decide how to proceed from there.

Run The Beirut Marathon In A Wedding Dress To End Early and Forced Marriages in Lebanon

ABAAD and Esposa Beirut are asking female participants in the Beirut International Marathon to participate and run the 10KM fun run in a wedding dress in order to raise awareness on early and forced marriages in Lebanon and the Middle East and North Africa region. That’s a pretty cool and fun idea. I just hope women will be able to find cheap wedding dresses.

Waynon Movie Trailer

Thousands of people who disappeared during the war in Lebanon and its aftermath are still missing today. The government has done nothing to clarify the fate of the missing persons, and the families are still waiting. Waynon is about six Lebanese women representing three generations, each one still waiting for the man in her life who was kidnapped during the Lebanese Civil War and is still missing.
It will be out on October 30.

There’s Nothing Special About Nawal Berry’s Twitter Wedding Proposal

Can someone explain to me why everyone’s talking about this wedding proposal that Nawal Berry has turned down on Twitter? Did anyone bother look at the guy’s twitter account? He’s been active for a month now and most his tweets look like spam. Moreover there’s nothing priceless or funny about his proposal. The only funny thing is that most Lebanese on Twitter were surprised by this man’s proposal and all acted as if religion didn’t matter to them. That’s the best joke I’ve heard in a long while.
