What is Pancake Day?

Shrove Tuesday marks the last day before Lent, traditionally a period of abstinence, associated with clearing your cupboards of things like sugar, fat and eggs. It's known as Pancake Day because it represents a good opportunity to use up such ingredients. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
When is Pancake Day?

Pancake Day takes place 47 days before Easter Sunday. Because the date of Easter Sunday is dictated by the cycles of the moon, Pancake Day can occur anytime between February 3 and March 9. This year's action is on Tuesday Feb 28 2017.

96% of the #Lebanese #economy is made of #SME (Small & Medium Enterprises). That is why it is very important to have a law that encourages, supports, and protects them. Encouraging small, medium, and even micro businesses can play a crucial role in developing the economy of undeveloped and rural areas as well.
Today's meeting at the ministry of finance was to discuss the new draft law that aims to strengthen the role of small and medium enterprises.
How should SMEs be defined? By headcount or annual turnover? Should all sectors have the same standards or does it differ between #agricultural and #industrial? Is it best to use EU standards, or should we scale down?
If you feel like you have any feedback, would like to contribute with comments and remarks, or would like to be informed on the new draft law do not hesitate to contact me. Civic engagement is as crucial as public policy making. We can only build together. Let's make Lebanon better.

"Disability is a state of mind. I am not disabled, I am different-abled" -
This is how @michaelhaddadofficial opened up the #undp and @undp_lebanon #youthleadershipprogram today.
With 75% of his body paralysed, modern medicine said he could never walk again yet alone sit without assistance. That did not stop him from breaking three world records from hiking in the cedars, to climbing the Raouche rocks, to planting the Lebanese flag on the highest summit in Lebanon. His next trip is going to the north pole; all in order to promote #environmental #awarness regarding #climatechange in the name of Lebanon (Learn more on livelebanon.org). I could not but feel privileged to have been selected among this year's #youthleaders batch working with the SDGs. Networking with these like-minded people is a hope restoration. An amazing group with lots of great ideas I'm sure. Its up to us to bring the #positivechange that we want to see in this country. Good luck for everyone and may all the pitched projects make it to regionals.

Meeting with the Office of Minister of State for Administrative Reform (OMSAR) and the World Bank to set the future of Lebanon's Public Procurement system.
Manual paper work in government institutions is a major set back in moving forward. Not only is it less efficient, prone to more human errors, and a contributor to bureaucracy...but it also opens way to corruption, less transparent measures, and lack of accountability.
Therefore it becomes very important to support and move into e-governance. Under this large title, e-procurement is our next project. A large sum of public funds go into public procurement, and without proper monitoring a lot of it can be misused. Today, we are meeting to discuss how the new system should become electronic and start taking the first steps towards e-governance.
I also believe in the synergetic roles of all three sectors; public, private, and civil. Therefore if you have any ideas, feedback, questions, or would like to know more, do not hesitate to contact directly.

Somerset Chp. 3: Dowsing at Stonehenge /Dowsing /ˈdaʊzɪŋ/: a technique for searching...by observing the motion of a pointer...supposedly in response to unseen influences./
But what if what we are searching for are the answers to the questions that haunt us the most...Who am I? Why am I here? What can I achieve? How unlimited am I?...
Seconds before leaving Glastonbury I was drawn to a pendulum that was hanging from a shop. As I got it, the owner tells me that it's made of bluestone; that same stone which is found in Stonehenge; my next destination. It might just be me, but I really love the serendipity of life.
As we arrived, it started to rain. Many were disappointed, but I was even more drawn. I wanted to anchor my moment there with the four elements, the earth, wind, rain, and fire within our soul. The place being as empty as it can ever be made it even more special.
I silently circled around Stonehenge, admiring the 3000 BC site, taken by its mystery. Then it came to me. Maybe there is a reason why Stonehenge refuses to give out any answers. If Stonehenge were to be a person she would be that High Priestess; she who asks you to stop looking outside for your answers, and to start looking inside.
P.S: Stonehenge is in the Wiltshire county but was part of my Somerset adventure, and hence the title.

Somerset Chp.2: The City of Tales and Magick
I heard that my next stop is going to be a special one; but I had no idea how special it was going to be. Glastonbury, the city of tales and magic, is a city like no other. Tales of beginnings of the Christian oratory in England begin here, with the arrival of Joseph of Arimathea. The same Joseph who was last to see Christ's body, the same Joseph with the thorn staff that became the holy tree of Glastonbury; a tree that comes from the Holy Land and is found nowhere else in England. On that hill, the Glastonbury Abbey was built; one that could possibly date back 2000 years, and whose fallen stones built the city around it...The same abbey where Arthur's body was said to be found. I can dedicate an entire entry for Glastonbury and it still wouldn't be enough to recount of the magic in this place. A magic that is not described, but felt. Stories about the Glastonbury Tor, the mystery of the Holy Grail, the legend of Chalice Well, and even the speculations about the city's landscape that create Arthurian symbologies. If Glastonbury were to be a person, it would definitely be one who answers your questions with another question...leaving you off scratching your head even more.

Somerset Chp. 1: Time and Eternity
As the clock struck the hour, its echoing sound filled the cathedral halls. Jousting knights rushed to claim their victory; a victory which they can never accomplish over time. I just froze, thinking how this clock has been counting the seconds for the past 600 years or so. I stood there there imaging the halls full with people...people who built the clock in the late 1300s, people who exchanged their eternal vows in those halls, people who celebrated their joys in that very same spot I stood in, and people who mourned their loved ones across the ages. It was just tantalising to live this fast rewind in time knowing that the only witness to all of it is still counting the seconds as I still stood there...the world's second oldest clock. That same clock that has seen it all, but stopped for none. I shook myself up from this reverie and walked slowly out thinking how I'm gonna make every one of my remains seconds count.

A pride new day: Stop hating yourself for what you aren't and start loving yourself for what you are.
I'd like to dedicate this post to Lebanon's first pride week ever and to the people who werent afraid to stand against all odds for what they believed in. Hopefully we can continue to be a leading example in the Arab world and promote equality, love, and self-expression. The journey is still in its beginning and there is a lot to be done. London has been an experience that changed my views so much and made me see things differently. @cheveningfco

Dover: The Castle of Time
Going through museums one expects to see artifacts and manifolds. But the last thing to come to mind is to be transported back in time through the landmark that has witnessed and shaped the English history across different ages. From touching the stones of Pharos dating back to 45 AD to sitting with the subjects of Henry II in his castle, I was walking between the time warps of the past. That same castle whose top secret tunnels rescued the Allies' troops from Dunkirk in WW2 in one of the most historical operations; Dynamo. Every stone had a tale to tell, and every tunnel turn had a secret to hide. Tales and Secrets that shaped the world that we know today.
