While thinking of writing these sentences, I noticed that maybe this week has been a “low action” week. no dramatic events or incidents, just good things, especially what is happening to the student bodies in the universities in Lebanon, in addition to the LAU, there is also one in the “Lebanese university”.
And also one of the few good things that we might notice in Lebanon, a Lebanese professor being chosen as the the best among other international ones (details below), and a professor from AUB discovering a new chemical Reaction.
