Well, "critics" are panning it, but I love it.
Yeah, some of the lyrics written by Rima are trite and the melodies are obviously nothing new, but the voice is f*cking amazing for any singer, nevermind an 81 year old woman. I can't believe how she easily pulls out western classics in such conviction at this age and with such authenticity. She could easily have been a Jazz singer virtuoso in the right hands, or even still now!
Do you know any NGOs, religious associations, state-funded programs or any resource, even people, in Lebanon that could help a couple of seniors (both sight impaired) fund the missing part of their housing loan?
They got a loan that covers part of the total.
There's around $30k left for them to borrow (or fund).
For the first time: AUB no. 1 university in the Arab region – QS University Rankings
The 2017/2018 edition of the QS Arab Region University Rankings has placed AUB in the first position among 1,000 universities in the Arab world. This is the first time that AUB holds this position. AUB has ranked second to King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in the three previous editions of this regional ranking, which started in 2014/2015.
“This remarkable accomplishment is a matter of pride for all – students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of AUB – and it could not have been achieved without the collective effort, hard work, and determination of each and every member of the AUB community in the pursuit of excellence,” said Provost Mohamed Harajli. “If the ranking is to be based on the impact that a university has on the people and the communities that it serves, AUB would be positioned in the first rank not only in the Arab World but also, by far, in the entire Middle East and...
Why Socialism is superior to Capitalism- The achievements of Socialist construction in the Soviet Union
Why Socialism is far superior than Capitalism-
The achievements of Socialist construction in the Soviet Union
By Nikos Mottas*.
During the last 25 years, after the victory of the counterrevolutionary forces in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, the public political discussion has been dominated by the concept of the “end of history, end of ideologies”. This is certainly a very convenient concept for the dominant class, the bourgeoisie, in her effort to convince the world that: 1) Socialism has irreversibly failed, 2) Capitalism is the final winner in the succession of History's socio-economic transformations, 3) Every argument for a non-capitalist society, where the means of productions will be socialized in a centrally-planned economy, is “unrealistic” and a “utopian fantasy”.
Anticommunism, of course, consists a core part of the above bourgeois principle. For more than two...

Eni the biggest energy company in the eastern Mediterranean plus total one of the biggest in the world are bidding to enter Lebanon; a turning point Lebanon is an oil state
عزائي وعزاء الشهداء في ١٣ تشرين اليوم ان تماثيل حافظ الاسد ازيلت من سوريا ولبنان حتى
وان معظم الضباط السوريين الذين شاركوا وخططوا اما ماتوا قتلا او اغتيالا او قابعين في المنازل او المنافي مذلولين
وان السياسين اللبنانيين الذي غطوا الاجتياح اما اصبحوا في القبر واما كتبت لهم الحياة ليشاهدوا رجل ١٣ تشرين جالسا في بعبدا رئيسا للجمهورية وعلى قلوبهم
So I personally have a persona on here that's the polar opposite of what I'm like in real life, here's a few notable differences:
- I'm generally shy
- I have a great respect for authority figures, seriously if someone in a uniform tells me to go somewhere I'm going there, no questions asked! Also if they ask me for money, they get it! Seriously every single new year's eve I buy every single calendar from firemen, police officers, garbage men, basically anyone who shows up at my door in a uniform!
- as a general rule I never ever argue about politics or religion with people I like, even when I really really really want to, I just change the subject
- I don't talk about sex, masturbation, porn or whatever other subject I discussed on here except with my husband and 2 of my closest friends
I think there's a lot more differences between the real me and Isabella but these are the ones that are the most obvious!
So yeah anyone else has a specific forum personality...
Are Israel and Hezbollah Preparing for War? | The Nation
Lebanon-Israel border—Tensions between Israel and Hezbollah are on the rise again, and according to a Hezbollah commander based in southern Lebanon, the nature of their next conflict will be shaped by his organization’s gains in the Syrian civil war.
Meeting in the rugged, mountainous Lebanese interior near the southern border, where occupying Israeli forces were driven out by Hezbollah in 2000 and suffered a second setback in the 2006 war, the commander feels emboldened by his Syrian spoils. “Commander Samir,” who declines to use his real name because he is not authorized to speak to the press, contends that his organization has moved new Russian anti-aircraft weapons and long-range missiles from Syria to this border region.
“I can assure you we have a nice, shiny new anti-aircraft system to show them,” says Samir, referring to Hezbollah’s planned response to an Israeli aerial assault. “We’ve got heavy long-range...

So I was talking to a friend of mine today, we were both invited to a wedding in Lebanon next summer, and I was asking how long she intended to stay, she said that she may not be able to go due to her having a Jewish last name...
Anyway the question is pretty straight forward, she has never been to Israel and has no ties whatsoever to that country, and she was very excited about going to Lebanon with us along with her husband who is also Jewish, both were told that they may not be allowed to enter because their last name is a very common Jewish last name... Will they be allowed to enter or will it be too complicated?

How do people survive losing their jobs?
I was once laid off from a job due to downgrading and it was the worst experience of my life.
Being young and jobless with 3 dependents and no savings, I didn't really know how to cope with the situation. There's nothing I hate more than borrowing money from people.
My job hunt wasn't going well, and by the third month I had already drained my savings and maxed out my credit card.
At one point, I had not even enough money to take a cab to job interviews. It was THIS bad. Fortunately, I ended up finding a job before it was too late and was able to bounce back.
Now in retrospect, I can't help but imagine how bad it must be for the unemployed. The government puts the current unemployment rate at 35%. How do these people survive, considering we don't have any unemployment benefits in Lebanon. Is job loss a death sentence?
