11 Eleven Global Project, Tripoli Car Free and empty-nest syndrome on Helwi Beirut’s episode 36!

Hi all!

In our show today, we welcomed many guests and featured some interesting reports. Our main guest was musician Khaled al-Abdallah who talked about his work experiences and his future plans.

One of the founders of Beirut Street Photographers Loryne Atoui and Soha Menassa talked about the Beirut Street Photographers participation in 11 Eleven Global Project. All photography buffs are invited to participate in this international event being held on the 11th of November 2011. The idea is to film, take photos, or record sounds during the 24 hours of the day based on the following 11 themes; beginnings, heart break, make a wish, faith, routine, water, courage, play, darkness, beauty and love!

Hala Fadel Chair of the MIT Enterprise Forum for the Pan Arab Region and founder of the Maurice Fadel Prize introduced Tripoli Car Free Day on our show today. Tripoli will be “car-free” on Sunday the 13th of November 2011 from noon till 8 p.m.

Life coach Grace Khleif talked to us about what self-improvement and empty-nest syndrome is. Grace Khleif explained that empty-nest syndrome is a void that a dedicated mother feels when her children leave home in other words have their own separate lives.

For all music fans, our second report on the show today was dedicated to you! Lady Gaga took home four awards at MTV Europe Music Awards. Gaga won Best Female Singer, Biggest Fans, Best Song and Best Video for her album “Born This Way”. Bruno Mars won the Best New Artist Award.  Justin Bieber, on the other hand, won Best Pop and Best Male Artist.

George Hatem, President of the Philippe Hatem Foundation, presented the black tie gala dinner being held on the 30th of November at Biel, Beirut. The master of the ceremony is ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine.

Hope you enjoyed our episode for today!
