Last Beach Day

 Not much happening these days. After the rain of last weekend, we’re back in sunshine mode. A friend and I decided to enjoy one of the (probably) last beach days. It’s not that the weather isn’t good enough to be on the beach after today, but the beach resorts pack up their furniture, close the bar, and turn off the water. That means that from now on we’ve got to go to the beach Dutch style; on a towel in the sand, bring your own food and go home all salty, sticky and sandy. We’ve become too Lebanese to deal with that.

Lebanese Rodolphe el-Khoury Named New Dean of the University of Miami School of Architecture

It seems I missed out on yet another achievement for a Lebanese abroad, as Rodolphe el Khoury was named the new dean of the University of Miami School of Architecture back in May 2014. El Khoury is born in Beirut and has taught at Harvard University, MIT, University of Hong Kong, Princeton University and Columbia University among others. [Source]

Lebanon Tops The List of Countries By Net Migration Rate

The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change and does not differentiate between economic migrants, refugees and other types of migrants. Of course it’s not surprising to see Lebanon on top given the number of Syrian refugees entering the country everyday.
In terms of other Arab countries, Qatar came second, followed by Jordan in fifth spot, then Bahrain and UAE in 9th and 10th respectively.

Beirut Bar Association Removed Fattouche’s Name From Its List, Pharaon To File A Lawsuit Against Him

According to LBCI, the Beirut Bar Association has removed the name of MP Nicolas Fattoush from the list of lawyers, while Al Jadeed reported that Pierre Michel Pharaon has filed a slander lawsuit against MP Nicolas Fattoush before the public prosecution. Fattouche did ask for it specially about violating the client-lawyer confidentiality during his press conference and by insulting an employee of the Justice Ministry as well.
I think it’s time he apologizes for what he did and admits he’s wrong, but I doubt that’s gonna happen.

Mabrook La Lebnen: Fatdouche No Longer a Lawyer


There are several grievous crimes Fattouche committed. Apart from hitting, or attempting to hit, and insulting a public employee, he’s the evil mastermind behind the parliament’s two extensions. But, he crossed way too many lines for the Beirut Bar Association with his disgusting press conference the other day.

Lebanonfiles And OTV Just Translated and Published a Hoax

Update: Add to the list Al Jomhouria
LBCI on the other hand fact-checked the story before posting it and stated that it’s a hoax.

PZZA.Co Now Serving Gluten Free Pizzas

I passed by Pzzaco yesterday to try out their new gluten-free pizzas before they start serving them today. I have to say I wasn’t expecting to like it but it wasn’t bad at all. Of course it’s not as good as the normal crust but it’s a great compromise if you are on a gluten-free diet or are gluten intolerant. I personally tried the Marguerita gluten-free pizza but it’s available for all pizzas except the Calzone, at least for now.
I love Pzzaco and I think their crust is one of the best in town, so go try it out!

Fattouch Denied Hitting Anyone, Manale Daou To File A Lawsuit

Zahle’s MP denied that he hit the girl and stated that he only raised his voice at her, which is also against the law of course. In all cases, Manale Daou has filed a lawsuit against Fattouche, which is the right thing to do, so let’s hope justice takes its course.
US President Obama got asked to show his ID while voting in Chicago two years ago. Imagine the same scenario happening in Lebanon with Fattouche in Lebanon.

Samir Kassab Is Also Lebanese And Is Still Missing In Syria

We all want the kidnapped Lebanese soldiers to be freed, and it is a matter of utmost importance, but we should give the same importance to any Lebanese kidnapped in Syria, whether they are soldiers, journalists, activists or just normal citizens. Samir Kassab is a Lebanese and the Lebanese authorities should free him the soonest possible, specially that there are no politics involved here.
It’s been a year already and no one knows where Samir is.
