LBCI falls victim to the Facebook Inshallah button joke
"You probably have heard in the last few days the joke about a new button being unveiled by Facebook to the Arabic market to allow the users in the region to respond with “Inshallah” to event invitation they receive.
The joke was started by a parody website The Pan-Arabia Enquirer, and unfortunately the LBCI website fell for it! Check the article they posted here."
It’s Official: Beirut is the Most Expensive City in the Middle East
"Abu Dhabi lost its lead as the Middle Eastern city with the highest cost of living to Beirut, while Dubai fell back 12 places in the global ranking, the Worldwide Cost of Living 2012, which was published by consultancy firm Mercer, on Tuesday.
Beirut [...] moved up by 8 notches to land on number 67 in the global Mercer ranking. Mostly due to pressure on real estate prices and rents, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) capital was replaced by Beirut as the most costly metropolis regionally."
"It’s been a while since I’ve seen a good movie like this one. It was really good & touching!
The movie talks about the time when the Japanese army invaded China & brutally killing everyone infront of them not sparing any soul, not even the children! You gotta watch the movie
The setting, the plot, the script, the acting are perfect. Though, the movie has some disturbing scenes, they don’t show you alot, but it’s still disturbing!
