Internationally acclaimed Lebanese winemaker Serge Hochar dies in accident
A Tribute To Serge Hochar, Who Inspired Me In Ways He Never Knew by Cathy Huyghe
Note: Serge Hochar, owner of the pioneering Château Musar in Lebanon, died over the New Year in a swimming accident while on holiday in Mexico. This is my tribute to him. M. Hochar, you inspired me in ways you never knew.
A year and a half ago I sat on a plane from Paris to Beirut, totally unnerved.
I was flying to Beirut to write about the family behind two wineries: one in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley (near your home), and the other in neighboring Syria, near Latakia. As a writer I am constantly searching for a compelling story, and this one had it, in spades – to continue to make wine while your country is at war, when you are driven by a desire to fight fundamentalism through the perseverance of vineyards on the land.

Haifa Wehbe only stays 15 minutes at "Halawet Rouh" premier
One would think she would be relishing in her movie "Halawet Rouh" finally rolling its way into cinemas after having been banned by the government earlier this year, but Haifa Wehbe only stayed for 15 minutes at the film's long awaited premier.
The Lebanese singer quietly fled the Nile City Cinema in Egypt to escape the press and journalists that had surrounded her when she first entered the theater, reported Al Jaras magazine.
After her film got such a bad rap before, it makes total sense the diva would be a little cautious about how well her scandalous script would be received this time.

The Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) is proud to present 2020 ADAPT or DIE, a PechaKucha style event with 20 speakers showing 20 slides on what the year 2020 might look like for creativity.
Founder of Velvet Onion and regular at General Assembly, Charbel Zaeiter sees the next six years as entering the ‘end of reliance’ when we can’t rely on the Government to fund education and we can’t expect corporations to give us jobs with meaning. If we realise it’s our choice to take responsibility how will things start to mutate to serve a new ‘conscious’ public. Among many insights Charbel suggests ‘big data’ could turn into ‘no data’ where people choose when and where to share their information, potentially even selling it to the highest bidder?
