letter from the editor

The Challenges of Building HOME I was invited this summer to Salzburg Academy on Media and Global change as a guest scholar to speak about my experiences – and especially challenges – as a media entrepreneur.

nada zeineh's love for precision!

“Nature brings you back to what you really are.”“My luxury is to be able to do exclusively what I like to do.” “Nature brings you back to what you really are,” said Nada Zeineh, architect by training, jewelry designer in practice. Her interest in nature is evident in her bright showroom on the fifth floor of the Kassir Building in Sursock, Beirut.

“Ghandour uses her online influence in a way that benefits the community by supporting charity and awareness campaigns.”“What doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.” Although hailing from a family that is not particularly into fashion, Ghina Ghandour’s fashion instinct and effortless style have always appealed to the people around her. “My style is a bit minimalist, and people would often compliment it for being elegant.

Mother of two, Noor and Yasmine, Ghandour initially studied tourism and worked for a while in the field of insurance before she took some time off to focus on her family. Her nowcoveted…

the doctor at your beck and call may be you

“Doctors can affect your illness just by the way they communicate.”“When you’re about to fight a wolf, it’s not in your body’s interest to start repairing itself at that moment.” This is a story about how an allergy to a cat altered the course of a young man’s life. It begins with a cup of ginger tea. In the early 1990s, Jeremy Howick, a competitive rower, hoped to win a spot on the Canadian national rowing team. He had been on the team at the prestigious Dartmouth College, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in engineering in 1992. Then he went back to his native Montreal (his great grandparents immigrated to Canada from Lebanon) with aspirations of being an investment banker. But first, he focused on making the team.
