Different But...

"Different but mixed"  is the slogan for the new ALRIFAI print AD, slogan that we always hear in Lebanon but don't think is a reality...Alrifai tells a great story, we all want to believe.

The effect of Public Smoking Bans in Lebanon

The Law to Ban Smoking in Public and Closed Areas in lebanon has just passed.what will be the effect of that Ban?

  • This summer, we will breath fresh air in the public places
  • We will consume more food
  • We will consume more alcohol
  • We will visit more diet centers
  • We will buy more natural health products
  • already-booming rooftop bar in the city
  • cafe-trottoir style will become the new trend
  • None smokers will  join the smokers outdoors
  • We will tweet less
  • We will work less and socialize more
  • We will live longer if the Lebanese authorities ban playing with dangerous bombs in public spaces.
I am sure i am missing some points , feel free to add yours in the comment box.

Have you ever seen a sea turtle in Lebanon?

I am a sea man, but I 've never seen these small species in my area, and never knew existed in Lebanon  until I saw a picture shared by @SanaTawileh on twitter. Apparently you can find the sea turtle in Batroun coast -North Lebanon  and Tyre coast -south Lebanon
 The Orange House Project   is a private initiative working hard to preserve the sea turtle in Lebanon, 
Threats to turtles according to the orange house project

threats to turtles include the use of close-meshed fishing nets and illegal dynamite fishing, often the work of impoverished southerners in search of a livelihood who need to be offered an alternative, sustainable way of fishing. Pollution from rubbish, plastic bags and industrial waste is a danger to marine life along Lebanon’s 150 km coastline. Some municipal dumps are located on the coast, notably a giant one in the southern city of Sidon which has partially collapsed into the sea several times.
Natural predators include crabs, dogs and seagulls.
Baby sea turtles are being sold in pet shops in Lebanon.

Baby keep smiling.

Cool Jell-O interactive billboard which monitors the mood of the world based on number of smiley and sad faces emotions posted on twitter.
Yesterday we installed a billboard that uses Twitter to monitor and display the world’s mood in real-time. When the mood starts to dip, we use Twitter to give away pudding until it comes back up. via: @copymatt
