Myriam Neaimeh The First Lebanese To Score In The FA Women’s Premier League!

Myriam joined Newcastle United a couple of years ago and has scored in their last game against Guiseley AFC Vixens. I don’t think we ever had any Lebanese playing in the FA Women’s Premier League so congrats to Myriam! I tried looking for a video but couldn’t find any.
Myriam plays in the FA WPL league, which comes right after the FA WSL which is the highest league.

A few months

A few months ago someone sat across the table from me. He asked me a silly question, like what was my favorite book or something. I squinched trying to remember, and I did. It was a book I had read many, many summers ago lying between the light blue sheets in my bed in Africa. I realized how much of what I am today is the product of who I used to be when I lived in Africa. A lot of my favorite things belong there...

I once asked if anyone can go play Golf there and I was told we need to get an invite. Has anyone been there already?

Global South Launches ‘Best White Saviour’ Award

From Bono to Al Gore, there can be no doubt that white saviours are great. Sadly the Global South has done little to acknowledge the greatness of white people over the recent decades, claiming it was busy with the challenges of post-colonisation, nation-building and fending off hunger. These are poor excuses however and a wide coalition of Global South governments, NGOs and ordinary people are now attempting to rectify this historic omission by launching the ‘Best White Saviour’ award this year.

First Look: The New Apple iPhone 6

I got to try out the new iPhone 6 last week and I am really glad that Apple decided to go for bigger screens. The iPhone 6 looks huge when compared to the iPhone 5 and 5s and even though some iPhone users may disagree, I think Apple did the right thing by making the screens larger. The iPhone looks and feels great and the screen resolution is quite impressive. It’s also curvy and more comfortable to hold but it’s also easier to drop now. The camera is great as always and the phone is a bit faster than the iPhone 5s. The battery life is also slightly better.

How It Looks Like On The Syrian-Lebanese Borders

[YouTube]
I spotted this video of a Hezbollah fighter mocking MP Sami Gemayel’s military plan to better control the Syrian-Lebanese borders. Personally speaking, I think all Lebanese parties are to blame for the situation but if what this fighter is saying is true on how the terrorists attack almost daily, then we are in deep trouble.
I am positive that the Lebanese army can control the borders but it needs to reinforce all the positions and set up watch towers every 1 km if not less. We have to do whatever it takes to keep these jihadists away from Lebanon.

Happy In Lebanon?

I don’t know if this is a new mall or supermarket or both but it’s opening soon at Charcutier Aoun’s previous Zouk Mosbeh branch.

Beirut Is Crazy, Messy, F***ed-up and Fantastic But It Is Not The Real Centre of This Region

I just finished reading the “Why Beirut Really Matters” post that everyone’s been sharing in the past couple of days and I really wish I could agree with everything the author is saying but I would be lying. I love Beirut and I admire Warren’s love for our capital but tiny little Beirut is ANYTHING but the real centre of this region, and definitely “not an indication of where we might, could, possibly even should, all be going, regionally and globally”.
