Tidbits and Notes. Part 275

Visiter un dentist a Bruxelles? Mais c’est une canine qui a des racines. Et si le dentist comprent de travers et marrache une dent tout a fait saine?

Le Gouvernement Libanais: Mais comment peut-on faire glisser la merde de ce budget cette fois-ci? Ca fait plus de 3 semaines que le governement essay d’appaiser tous les organizations and service public, de maniere a ne pas toucher a leur salaire et les epargnes des retraites.

Israel knows, but USA administrations refuse to admit that in order for Israel to survive the next 2 decades, Israel has to withdraw unilaterally from Lebanese occupied lands in Mazaare3 Sheb3a and Kfarshouba, and let the Lebanese army enter these restituted lands

Les souvenirs agissent comme antidote quand le passe’ n’ interesse personne. Et on reconsidere tout depuis le debut: Mais non, tous ces gens du passe’ n’ etaient pas des imbeciles

Tu a un sacre’ disque dur qui lui manque severement de ram? Allo, ca existe toujours les disques durs?

In Kornet Chehwan (Lebanon), there exist a private library of late Maitre Phares Zoghbi. After years of negotiation with the university USJ,  this university has decided to trample on its legal agreement and the spirit of keeping this library opened to the community. USJ decided to close the library, dismantle it and sell the house and land.  Is the soul of preserving a semblance of a community dead? This ignominy should Not passaran.

La langue francaise est feminine: Est-ce pour cella qu’elle sonne bonne?

The resistance forces against Israel will win: their legitimate morale and their moral are at the ascending. Israel soldiers return home morally and emotionally handicapped.

It is shameful that most EU states have either abstained or voted against the UN report on Israel crimes against human rights. It is urgent that foreign offices in neighboring countries to Palestine submit detailed reports on daily violent activities of Israel to EU ambassadors: NO excuses of Not doing due diligence.

“Seul celui qui travaille doit pouvoir manger?” (German Deputy Muntefering). Donc, Tous ceux qui touchent des allocations doivent fumer et boire de la bierre?

Geneticists at the turn of the century were hopeful that after the near completion of the Human Genome Project, they would be able to provide comprehensive personalized insights to everyone. While this idea may be true eventually, right now it’s still a pipe dream: Individual genetics have so many variations (membership), scientists couldn’t possibly understand them all in the few decades modern genetics has existed. (Waiting for AI to be more comprehensive?)

The growth of these services has been exponential in recent years: Globally over 26 million people have taken some kind of consumer genetic test, and in just five years, forecasts suggest, the industry will be worth $2.5 billion. It’s clear that the services’ popularity won’t go away anytime soon. (Tests’ shortcomings semi-scientifically clarified in the fine print?). The long-term effects they’ll have on consumers depend on how their creators choose to clarify the uncertainties of science. —Katherine Ellen Foley

In the US, Australia, and Canada, nearly one in three international students is from China. This happened because of the rise of China’s middle class, and universities’ increasingly revenue-focused approach to enrollment.

In Sri Lanka, efforts to combat violence might include analyses of women’s roles in such attacks and ensuring that the country’s Muslim population isn’t targeted. In most under-developed countries, women are the sources for maintaining archaic traditions in the household and controlling it in neighbourhoods.

In the 4 volumes of “L’ Amie Prodigieuse” by Elena Ferrante, it dawn on me that Lana was madly in love with Michele the “gangster”, since childhood, and this love was reciprocated. When his brother Marcelo wooed her for months and dropped him out of spite, she knew that marrying Michele was out of the question. She decided to remain in the Old Quarter of Naples to be close to Michele. There was no explicit allusion to this hypothesis in the 4 volumes.

You cannot be a traitor to your people and preserve your Druze religious sect Walid Jumblat. At best, you’ll end up an exiled in Turkey, the new Ottoman country

Why those who have worthy stories to tell, never write? Is it because they are old and never learned to write, or failed to practice noting down their experiences? Is it why most history stories are fraught with imagined “faked news”?

Si l’ oiseau sait marcher, l’homme doit savoir voler par soi-meme. Et si l’ oiseau peut voler apres avoir mange’ d’un seul coup son poids, l’homme doit pouvoir marcher apres un grand festin.

Lebanese refuse the wide variety and over- burdening indirect taxes that makes Lebanon the most expensive State: every paperwork requires dozen of expensive transactions, the tax on gasoline (50% on each gallon), two bills on water and electricity…

La temperance pratique’ en Paques par les peuples Protestants exprime deja le doute.

Many go to great extent to scientifically match the birth of Jesus to some extraordinary celestial occurrences. My question is: And the hundreds who were born at the same moment? Who can they be? Shou ta3neton?

The EU is for the youth, and the voters for Brexit denied them this right

Lebanon is Not bankrupt: it is highway robbed, internally and externally

اليوم كان في مؤتمر صحفي للدكتور حسن خليل (خبير اقتصادي)، ملخص ما قاله:
ان كل المرافق العامة تخضع لعملية نهب ممنهجة من قبل اصحاب النفوذ!

– المحاصصة أكلت الدولة وكل مفصل من مفاصلها تسيطر عليه جهة سياسية!
– المستثمر الاجنبي يهرب من لبنان لان استثماره مشروط بشراكة صاحب نفوذ!

– لما لا يتم دمج الفا وتاتش؟ لان خلف كل شركة جهة سياسية تستفيد منها!

– بين ٤٠٠ و ٧٠٠ مليون دولار هي خسائر الدولة من مشتقات النفط لانها تستوردها عبر وسطاء.
– مرفأ بيروت جمهورية بحد ذاتها ادارته تقرر كم ستعطي لخزينة الدولة دون أي رقابة.

-قيمة التهرب الضريبي في المرفأ تبلغ سنويا ٧٠٠ مليون دولار
– اوجيرو اخذت سلفة ٥٥٠ مليار ليرة في عهد الجراح وحتى الآن لم يعرف اين تم صرفها!
– الدولة تعتمد في استدانتها على اموال المودعين وهذه سابقة لم تحدث من قبل!

– قسم كبير من الاملاك البحرية تسيطر عليه الاحزاب والسياسيين!
– قيمة الودائع تبلغ 180 مليار دولار، ماذا لو قرر المودعون سحب اموالهم؟

– في مراجعة لما سُجل في سجلات جمارك الصين من بضائع تم شحنها الى لبنان تبين انها تبلغ ٣ أضعاف ما تم تدوينه في سجلات الجمارك اللبنانية!
– تدخل البلد مجوهرات ولكنها تسجل على انها “صرامي”

– 250 مليار دولار انفقت في لبنان وحتى الآن لا وجود لبنية تحتية
– مجلس المهجرين بعد ٣٠ سنة من انتهاء الحرب يريد ٢ مليار دولار لاغلاق الملف.

– ٢٠ مليار دولار انفقت على قطاع الكهرباء وحتى الآن لا كهرباء ولا احد يعلم سرها النووي.
– ايرادات الاتصالات انخفضت في سنة من مليارين الى مليار و٣٠٠ الف دولار من دون معرفة كيف حصل ذلك!

– كيف يأملون بأن يأتي سياح الى لبنان وبحره تحول الى جورة مجارير؟ بالأمس امرأة أغمي عليها من رائحة نفايات الكوستا برافا
– اجراءات الحكومة ضرورية ولكنها حتما غير كافية والموازنة خالية من اي رؤية اقتصادية.
– كيف يمكن لمن اوصل البلد الى هذه الحالة ان يضع حلولا ؟

– يوجد وزراء لديهم كفاءة ولكن للأسف القرار الحزبي يأتي قبل ذلك!
– السلطة موحدة فيما المجتمع المدني مشتت!
المسؤولون بلا ضمير والشعب نائم!…

وماذا بعد كل هذه المعلومات .. السؤال المطروح هل نحن شعب يحاسب …ام اننا مجموعات ورعايا تابعة لزعيمها الطائفي والمذهبي وهو المستفيد ..؟
متى يستفيق هذا «الشعب » ؟
