الشحرورة صباح تبرّجت وتغنّجت وتأنّقت وتألّقت وتسرّبت إلى القلوب بطيبتها وقهقهات ضحكاتها وشنّفت الآذان بمواويلها الصدّاحة والخلّابة وسجّل غناؤها تراثاً فنّياً رائعاً يتردّد صداه في أذهان اللبنانيّين والعرب وبزّت “حاتم طيّ” بجودها وحاكت الأم تيريزا برأفتها وإنسانيتها. لك يا صبّوحة مكانة مميّزة بين الصدّيقين والبررة بجوار شفيعتك سانت تريز دو ليزيو في الأعالي. لقد “سرقت” قلوب الناس على حدّ قول شحرور الوادي لعبد الوهاب “الحرامي”.

Ivy’s Holiday Makeup Must Haves from Beauty Concept

No matter how much makeup I accumulate, I can’t seem to ever have enough. It could be five parallel degrees of one shade of blush or lipstick, but I’ll convince myself that they’re not the same, and end up with them all. No complaints there.

Brand Building Basics for Beginners

According to Marty Neumeier, "the main purpose of branding is to get more people to buy more stuff for more years at a higher price."

When Will Assaults Against Journalists In Lebanon Stop?

Picture via Now
This is not the first time that Lebanese security forces assault journalists during an event or a demonstration and probably won’t be the last. I really wish I could understand why a policeman might go after a journalist. Looking at the video, the ISF officers seemed outraged and pissed off but I couldn’t figure out why and I didn’t read any justification of their actions.

There’s nothing new about this killer can-eating fish that has gone viral in the past few days. It’s called the puffer fish and it’s been there for the past 10 years or more in Lebanon. In fact, Saida fishermen exhibited tens of these fish back in 2008 in order to warn the residents of eating them as they are highly poisonous.
I wonder if there’s any strategy set to keep this fish away from our shores.

The World’s Largest Ancient Stone Block Found In Baalbeck!

German Archeologists have discovered right next to the “Hajar Al Hibla” in Baalbeck, or the stone of the pregnant woman, the biggest known ancient stone block. The stone is more than 20 meters long and weighs 1,650 tons. It was meant to be transported without being cut but archeologists will need to extend the trenches to determine its exact height.
Baalbeck is one of the largest Roman sanctuaries known and has some of the best preserved Roman ruins in Lebanon.
