Would you suggest an arrest to Nissan?

The guys at Nissan – Rymco are claiming they’ll be trying to reduce drunk driving throughout this month by allowing you to report intocixated people so they would come get them home in a Nissan while someone sober drives their cars safely. But don’t expect the hot police women to show up everytime you report someone!

A new highway to be constructed in Achrafieh

According to this article in The Daily Star today, there’s a new highway that is set to be constructed in the near future in Achrafieh linking Hazmieh to Charles Helou and passing by Mar Mkhayel. The project plan has been there since the 70’s but was delayed because some residential buildings have to be demolished, and the Council for Development and Reconstruction is now set to go forward with it starting this summer to help reduce the traffic in and out of Achrafieh.

Some activists however are opposing the project and trying to suggest some alternatives to avoid demolishing of old buildings and preserve the streets that might be affected by this highway. You can read more about it here.


This is definitely not an accurate drawing of the highway, but I’m trying to imagine how will it look like. I guess it will start somewehre in Alfred Naccache, passing by the small bridge in Charles Malek, and then straight to Charles Helou.


Lebanese football referee gets attacked by players!


As if Lebanon needed more scandals and ugly incidents, this outrageous uncivilized act against a referee in a football match came to add salt to the wound. The referee did not give Al Nahda Club a penalty in the added time of the second half against Al Salam Zgharta, and the players went crazy chasing him all across the pitch. The video here doesn’t show more of the attack but it gives you an enough idea about what happened.

2013 Most powerful Lebanese women


Arabian Business published their 2013 list of the top 100 powerful women in the Arab world, and 12 Lebanese women made it to the list, with the most powerful one being Nayla Hayek (chairwoman of the Swatch Group) who came in the 8th position.

Below are the Lebanese woman who made it to the list:

8. Nayla Hayek
14. Leila El Solh
31. Fairouz
39. Nadine Labaki
41. Nancy Ajram
42. Elissa
46. Anissa Helou
49. Cyrine Abdelnour
56. Najwa Karam
66. Octavia Nasr
81. Mona Bawarshi
90. Christine Sfeir

Is it a bit weird to see people like Nancy Ajram and Elissa making it to the top 100 while there’s no mention of Haifa Wehbe? Anyway, you can check the full list here.

Thank you Ivy
