Great news to all 3G users! Minister of Telecommunications Nicolas Sehnaoui announced at NDU today that capacities for all 3G plans will be increased by 50% for the same prices.

Cesc Fabregas supports the Free Patriotic Movement?


A photo of Cesc Fabregas making the “L” sign with his fingers surfaces, and next thing you know he made it because he supports the Free Patriotic Movement after his Lebanese girlfriend told him about Michael Aoun! You can read all about it here.

I’d love to know which genius made that up.

Fouad Makhzoumi in a live twitter session this Saturday


I got some criticism earlier when I wrote about “Khlosna ba2a” campaign by the National Dialogue Party, since you know, blogs like +961 and politics don’ti mixi!

That’s why I’m taking the opportunity to let you know I have just learned that Fouad Makhzoumi, the founder of that party, will be holding a live twitter session this Saturday at 6PM through his account @fmakhzoumi, so that those who are interested (and maybe criticizers) can get to know him more and ask him about his agenda, as I believe moderate figures like him deserve an opportunity to get more exposure.

For more about what Makhzoumi does, you can also check his foundation’s website.

Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui was lucky enough to escape a Rhinoceros attack while he was on a hunting trip in Africa along with minister Marwan Kheireddine.

Caretaker State Minister Marwan Kheireddine saved caretaker Telecommunications Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui from a rhinoceros attack while they were in Africa, reported An Nahar daily Friday.

It said that as the ministers were on a hunting trip in Africa, Sehnaoui decided to rest by the rhinoceros, which he mistook for a rock.

The animal soon turned its attention to Sehnaoui and attempted to attack him.

The minister began to run away from the rhinoceros, while Kheireddine and their companions scared off the animal with their sticks. Source

I wonder what other cool hobbies do our ministers have!
