Egyptian Elections Raise Panic, but Keep Calm and Carry On!
Out with the old Egyptian elections and in with the new 'reformed' electoral contest.
Egypt's elections: don't panic!
"Egypt's first post-Mubarak elections are scheduled to begin in less than two weeks. It would be hard to exaggerate how badly the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) has prepared for these pivotal transitional elections. The election law is baffling and incoherent. Election preparations seem haphazard. The rules keep changing. People barely know what or who they are voting for. Some activists plan to boycott. Islamists seem poised to win big. The election is shaping up to be far messier and difficult than it needed to be."

Lebanon: History in the Making? (World Cup Qualifiers for Brazil 2014)
"Don’t let over excitement carry you away and don’t let a pessimistic observer like myself kill your dreams. Lebanon did the impossible and won against one of the best teams in Asia but Lebanon is yet to qualify to round 4 of the Asian qualifiers (Exactly! One more round before we celebrate!)"

Writing and reading are my new math and physics.
"It is weird how time changes us and I am not talking about aging damage here. I was reading “The Help” yesterday in my bed before going to sleep, fighting my sleepy self and trying to get over as many pages as I can. The language of the book didn’t help either. I don’t like it. It feels weird and I have much difficulties understanding that an “at” is an “at” when it is written missing a “t”! In-spite that, I still intend to read it all, even-though it didn’t hooked me yet. Maybe it has to do with a recommendation of a friend who said that this book is amazing, along with the fact that it has been a best seller in the past months and was made into a movie."
