Funny Slogan!!!

On my way to work each morning, I use the coastal highway,and I read this funny slogan posted by the Lebanese Forces on one of the pedestrian bridges in Karantina.

What is written on the banner is 100% right, but the signature is somehow weird. As I believe nobody forgot the way the LF dealt with our national army 18 years ago.

When writing the above, I am of course not taking a political side …it is only pure logic & some memory refreshment.

Do You Love Skype and Hate Facebook!

June 29th, 2007 No comments

Nowadays Facebook is everywhere, facebookists are around the corner, facebookism is in the air and Facebook applications are by thousands now. I even launched the blog www.facebookism.com to cover anything related to this phenomenon.

The more I am digging around this new social network, the more I am discovering people rejecting it without reason.

Then this morning while turning my laptop on in the office, my Skype was signing in and I wondered why some people who reject Facebook, do use Skype?

Skype has many features that are similar to Facebook and Skype was there way before Facebook. I will not count the option of both of them, but your profile on Skype have many identical fields as Facebook, you can have your picture attached, you add friends from anywhere in the world, you can have voice chat, you can have video chat, you can even search for people by very small details (age, gender, country, etc…)

Lots of people are having social networks on Skype or MSN or Gtalk or other messengers without even noticing it, but I don’t really understand why they reject Facebook in an era where the internet will move soon from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.

If some people are afraid about their privacy, they should know that everything is controllable and that on September 8, 2006 Mark Zuckerberg (the founder of Facebook) apologized from many upset Facebook members who responded with outrage and he offered many privacy options.

My small conclusion, Skype and Facebook are almost the same in many issues and different in others but at the end, you can make your networks on both.

Spain, We Are Sorry !

BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) — A suspected car bomb struck a United Nations peacekeeping patrol Sunday in southern Lebanon, killing five Spanish peacekeepers and wounding three others, Spain’s Defense Minister Jose Antonio Alonso said.

“The most probable cause, pending final analysis, is that the explosion came from a car bomb that was remotely detonated as the Spanish vehicle went by,” Alonso told reporters in Madrid, Spain.

Alonso said Spanish patrols had increased security in recent weeks after various attempts to destabilize the region. He said Sunday’s attack happened on a road used daily by the Spanish peacekeepers. Those killed were between the ages of 18 and 21, he said.

Lebanese security sources said the suspected bomb ignited ammunition inside the peacekeepers’ armored vehicle, causing a secondary explosion that engulfed the vehicle in flames.

The explosion occurred in the eastern sector of south Lebanon in Khiam Valley, near the town of Dardara, Lebanese army sources said.

More than 1,000 Spanish troops are serving in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, Spain’s Defense Ministry said.

There are about 15,000 UNIFIL troops in southern Lebanon. The force was set up in 1978 after Israeli forces withdrew from Lebanon, but more troops were added following last year’s war between Israel and Hezbollah forces in Lebanon.

Hezbollah condemned Sunday’s blast and said it was intended to destabilize the country, Reuters reported. “The attack hurts the people of the south and of Lebanon,” Hezbollah-linked al-Manar television said, according to Reuters.

CNN’s Brent Sadler, Al Goodman and Carolina Sanchez contributed to this report.
