Admin. sees plagiarism as essay writers turn big profit

Yara Zeitoun Staff Writer Patrick Lewtas, an AUB philosophy professor, doesn’t have any personal experience with essay writing companies, but he knows their work when he sees it in his classes. “You can tell the papers just could not have been written by that student,” he said. “There was one student I had where the paper clearly came from a paper writing service. Even replies to my emails were coming from the writing service because they were not the student’s style or way of thinking.” With a hint of irony, Lewtas notes that the obviously plagiarized work was for an ethics class. Online essay writing services have added another fold to the changing landscape of plagiarism on campuses everywhere. While AUB faculty and administrators see the fight in black-and-white terms, essay writers see their services as a moral gray area and a lucrative business. One AUB graduate interviewed for this story paid $40 for a two-page philosophy

paper that earned her a 91. “It was worth it only because I didn’t have time to write. I was overloaded that semester, with too many finals,” she said. “But I did feel really guilty because I don’t get anything out of getting someone to write it for me.” THE STRATEGY “I get £16,000 from a Saudi girl studying in London for her Ph.D.,” said Michael, the founder of essay writing company My Best Essays; he agreed to be interviewed only if his real name was not printed. “That’s £800 a month, for two years, from one person.” When asked how this student could live with such a lie, Michael said that “if the Saudi government is paying for her Ph.D., she doesn’t care if she gets it or not.” Michael, 28, has been the brains behind My Best Essays for eight years. The company provides work for students, promising to be punctual and 100 percent original. “When I was in a certain university in Lebanon, I thought of [this] because I had a high GPA and many students asked for help, from tutoring

to writing essays,” Michael said. “At that time I used to write essays for others, but currently I only write theses for Saudi students in the U.K.” Essays usually start at $100, but the can go to $500 or more for undergraduate

papers. “For example, in a certain period of time, 238 papers brought about roughly $47,000. And that was a dead season.” The price of an essay is based on word count, time due, complexity and the level

of the student. The company has a presence in Beirut, Dubai, London and Barcelona, with more than 150 full-time writers and requests from around the globe, but these days Michael says he focuses on elite high schools. “All the students in Brummana High School, ACS, IC—that’s my market: the Virgin Market. I can make $30,000 at least from one school.” One high school student in Switzerland, he said, is currently paying $500 for a paper. THE ARGUMENTS Dean of Student Affairs Talal Nizameddin and Lewtas, the philosophy professor, take a strong stance against plagiarism. Both claim that plagiarism occurs too regularly at AUB. Nizameddin said in University circles the debate revolves around whether the plagiarism is intentional. “The University feels very strongly about it because it really undermines the essence of what the University is about,” he said.

Creating the visual language PSPA to host lecture on Special Tribunal El Hilweh,” which focuses Maya Ayache on seven women of different for Lebanon Contributing Writer Last week, filmmaker Dahna Abourahme visited AUB to explain how, through new methods of storytelling, she revisited how the 1983 Israeli occupation of South Lebanon impacted the women in the Ein El Hilweh refugee camp. During the Israeli occupation, the camp was destroyed and the men were taken captive and imprisoned. As a result, women were forced to pool their efforts to maintain a sense of community and to provide for their families. Abourahme documented these events in her film “Kingdom of Women: Ein

backgrounds living in the Palestinian refugee camp. In her lecture, Abourahme, who is Palestinian, explained the process behind creating the visual language in her documentary, which was was initiated by the Arab Resource Center for Popular Arts (AlJana). She said her inspiration and motive was to “try to break away from the stereotypical image of Palestinian refugees.” Abourahme used various mediums of storytelling such as animation, film and documentary to tell the women’s stories.

Lebanon has seen many political murders in recent years, starting with the assassination attempt on Marwan Hamadeh in 2004. The bombings have continued, targeting prominent figures one by one. In 2005, Rafiq Hariri, Gibran Tueni, Samir Kassir and George Hawi were assassinated, in addition to the attempted assassinations of May Chidiac, Ali Ramez Tohme and Elias El-Murr. Throughout the years from 2006 till 2008, Pierre Amine Gemayel, Antoine Ghanem, Walid Eido, Francois Hajj

and Wissam Eid were assassinated. So far, the last of these assassinations killed Wissam Al Hassan in the Ashrafieh bombing a month ago. The severity of the situation led to the creation of the Special Tribunal in the hope that it would reveal the identity of the killers and prevent future attacks. To clarify all the details concerning the STL, the department of Political Studies and Public Administration will organize a lecture titled “International Criminal Adjudication and the Special Trial for Lebanon” on Dec. 10 at West Hall. The lecture, which will

start at 2 p.m., will outline the origins of international criminal justice. Also, the potential legacy of the STL for Lebanon and the Arab world will be addressed. One of the interesting points to be covered during the event is that the UNbacked tribunal, unlike its predecessors in the case of authority, was not merely established in a vacuum. It builds upon nearly 20 years of credible international criminal adjudication.

Behind the scenes of the AUB’s Flag Day ceremony Salim Kaddoura dismay over the turmoil in annual AUB Outdoors Contributing Writer the region, recognizing that

Ghida Ismail Staff Writer

On May 19 and 20, AUB traded its usual academic façade for an Arabian Night look. The upper campus offered various games and food services under Arabian tents and magical lamps. It was the time of the year when kids, teenagers and adults gather to enjoy the annual AUB Outdoors festival. “As expected, the [2012] AUB Outdoors was a weekend of pure fun and entertainment. It was magical with all the Arabian Nights decorations,” said electrical engineering student, Nadine Nakad. To make this annual event possible, a group of students’ hard work and commitment is necessary throughout the semester. Preparations for this year’s Outdoors festival, scheduled for May, have already begun and all cabinet positions have been filled. The members were chosen by the Student Affairs Office after interviews were carried out. While nine members formed last year’s Outdoors cabinet, 11 form this year’s cabinet. Chief Executive Officer Ramzi Taybah’s job is to supervise the work of the cabinet, team leaders and members. With the help of Chief Operations Officer Christopher Sassine and Operations Officer Mona

Talih, he will make sure that all the operations are being executed smoothly. Different vice executives are part of the Outdoors cabinet. Nour Jalloul is in charge of food and games, Sarah Awada of marketing and sponsorship, Yazan Halwani of decoration and safety and Natalie Humsi of concerts and entertainment. Their role is to monitor the team leaders’ work and make sure that planned tasks go according to the schedule and meet the required quality standards. This year’s cabinet includes two treasurers, Jad Sabra and Jad Hajj Ahmad, whose role is to manage the budget. In addition, two secretaries, Joy Arab and Dina Masri, have to keep all the cabinet and members updated with all the decisions. “With the changes made to the cabinet, many of the obstacles faced by previous cabinets should be easily overcome,” said Sassine. “There is, however, a lot of work to be done in order to ensure a successful festival this year.” “This event brings the AUB community much closer each year, and this will surely be the case this time around.” he said. “This year’s organizers will strive to bring together a landmark event that will remain fond in the memories of all attendees.”

AUB on Wednesday celebrated its annual Flag Day, a ceremony saluting the Lebanese flag the day before Independence Day. Before noon, students began to assemble in front of West Hall to watch the Lebanese Armed Forces military band play various preliminary songs. In the meantime, papers bearing the Lebanese flag and the lyrics to the national anthem were handed out to the crowd. At about 11:50 a.m., the band began to play the national anthem while dozens of students as well as some faculty and staff watched. A few people joined in, singing the lyrics by heart. Dean of Student Affairs Talal Nizameddin thanked the musicians and gave a speech in which he mentioned his

many AUB students might be distressed over recent events in neighboring countries. Nizameddin asserted AUB’s continuing position as a role model “not only in the region, but the world” and expressed his belief that the university “makes the region a better place.” He also called upon the AUB community to “reaffirm [its] commitment to keep this country safe from harm.” Nizameddin went on to raise the Lebanese flag, bringing the ceremony to an end. As the onlookers dispersed, some students welcomed the ensemble and posed with members of the military band for group photos. Not all students were interested in the celebration, however, and many were completely unaware of it or did not know what it was.

Others said they would have liked to attend if not for exams or classes. In any case, AUB students seem to hold a wide variety of views toward their country, ranging from apathy to full-on patriotism

Cooking for a Cause: Learn to cook for the community Yara Zeitoun Staff Writer When it comes to community service and diverse recreation, AUB has plenty. The issue, however, is the lack of awareness of these events hosted by different AUB clubs. Cooking for a Cause provides students, faculty and even alumni, a great opportunity to enrich one’s university years, while simultaneously donating to charity. Provided by the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Service, these bi-weekly cooking classes held at the Pilot Plant are taught by Grace

Haddad, a passionate chef. The idea of these classes is to pay $40 to $45, some of which goes to the ingredients and supplies, the rest of which goes to providing cancer

patients required medicine. Although they provide a unique and excellent experience, surprisingly there were barely any students that attended, but mostly staff.

The only advertising that they had was through AUB’s website bulletin and their own personal volunteers, but apart from that, they had no other forms of advertisement to students. According to Olga Majzoub, project coordinator, classes are full at times, but due to a lack of awareness of these classes, were not as full as they easily could have been. Classes can fit up to 25 people, and they have between 15 to 25 people coming to each session. As for dietary restrictions, each menu usually has at least two dishes out of three that cater to vegetarians. Also, they

can arrange extra or private sessions if there are enough participants willing to join. For this semester, they planned five different sessions, two of which are still up for grabs: “Christmas Menu” parts 1 and 2. Part 1 is going to be on Dec. 5, and the final one, Dec. 17. The Christmas menus sound succulent and include dishes like Gingerbread People, My Zesty Turkey, Meli Melo Salad, Truffes au Chocolat and more. Both days include a total of four dishes that participants will be taught to cook, and have the opportunity to eat afterwards.

Michael claims he has writers who are Daily Star editors, and others who are full-time professors at universities in the UK and other reputable institutions. THE CONSEQUENCES Lewtas said most Western universities have a simple policy, which is “get caught, and you’re out. Expelled. In a bunch of years of teaching, I never came across a case of cheating. It’s rare and extraordinary. And universities come down on the perpetrator like a ton of bricks. The system here is, first time, a dean’s warning. Second time, a mark on your transcript. I think AUB should impose the stiffest penalty that faculty would be willing to [enforce].” A non-AUB student got off easy after being caught using an essay writing service. “[The TA] asked me stuff from my essay I didn’t know ‘cause I didn’t write it and didn’t even understand half the words,” the student said. “The teacher liked me, so he gave me a chance to do it again, but usually I would’ve gotten a zero or been expelled. But I’ll never do it again.” The biggest problem with plagiarism, Lewtas said, is how it robs students the chance to grow. “If people want to stand up on their own two feet, they need to build something with their own hands, not steal it or borrow it,” he said. His advice would be for AUB to have the same consequences other universities have—one strike and you’re out. “Frankly, trying to teach them at this age not to plagiarize won’t work. The only way for them to take [plagiarism] seriously is for us to up the consequences.”

Every year, over 1,500 students from universities all over Asia flood the Sepang Formula One circuit to race some of the funkiest and strangest racecars ever to loop around its tracks. Some racecars look like wooden boxcars, others resemble submarines, and others still look like flying machines from the future. The goal of the race is to find the vehicle that can travel the farthest while using the least fuel. This competition, called the Eco-marathon Asia, is hosted yearly by Shell and garners international recognition and attention. Last year, the first place winners from Thailand unbelievably got their vehicle to travel 2,903 km using one liter of ethanol fuel. In seventh place came the AUB team of engineering students, headed by Kamal Hamadeh. Many of you might have seen the strange-looking vehicle driving around campus prior the competition. This year, the AUB team will enter the competition once again. The members have already built their car, which Hamadeh describes as a “better-modified vehicle that shall take the spotlight.” However, they are seeking a sleek, unique and professional outer design for the vehicle, which is why they have launched the “AUB

Conceptual Vehicle Design Competition 2013.” Though this competition mainly targets graphic design and architecture students, any AUB student can register to submit his or her sketch of a proposed design for the exterior body of the car. The submission can either be software-designed or a simple hand sketch. The winner of the competition will not only witness his or her design being manufactured and equipped onto the vehicle, but will also get the chance to join the AUB team and win a free trip to Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, with the ticket and accommodation fully covered. The winner will have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of stepping foot on the Sepang Formula One racetrack and pit area. As registration for the “AUB Conceptual Vehicle Design Competition” ends this Friday, Hamadeh encourages all AUB students with conceptual drawing skills to take a risk and sign up for the competition at the FEA dean’s office. “If someone has the skills and thinks they can sketch a unique exterior design, I’d encourage them to do it,” noted Hamadeh. “They just might get lucky.” After all, it’s not everyday that one gets to travel to a Formula One racetrack in Malaysia and take part of a program that annually breaks new ground in energy efficiency.

Rugby in AUB: More than just tackling and falling Nour Turkmani Staff Writer

With the growing popularity of rugby in the world, it comes as a surprise that rugby isn’t exactly a renowned sport in Lebanon. However, in AUB particularly, rugby has been steadily budding over the years and

But we, the new players and the old players, are working very hard on strengthening our team and that is more than enough.” During practises and games, the coach, Faysal Jaber, generates a feeling of unity, dedication and commitment. The game with LAU on Nov. 9 was an easy 12-4 win.

‘3aTari2ak’ O.J. kiosk to help charities Thurayya Zreik Staff Writer

Under a tree beside West Hall, a green canvas canopy shades a table where several people are milling around, squeezing fragrant juice from fresh oranges. This is the second and final week the orange juice stand has been a fixture on the AUB upper campus. The stand is part of the “3aTari2ak” (on your way) project, which, stemming from the Lebanese NGO Causes, aims to foster a socially conscious and responsible community. The stand is one of many that have been erected this month. The proceeds from the sales of cups of orange

juice will be donated to the Tamanna charity, a nonprofit foundation that grants wishes to children who are critically or terminally ill. “The idea is basically juice for charity,” said Hani al-Hassan, a volunteer with Causes. “We sell juice and donate the proceeds to a different [cause] every month.” “Our plan is to establish 10 permanent stands around Beirut so that we can continue the project all year round,” he said, pouring juice into a cup and handing it to a customer. The impacts of the “3aTari2ak” project extend beyond donations to charity. “The project has many benefits to the community,” said Kinan Salaheddine, a first-year computer science

student who became involved with the project through the Center for Civic Engagement and Community Services. The benefits are multifaceted. From the recycled cups to supporting local agricultural producers, the project attempts to address as many social issues of the Lebanese community as possible. “‘3aTari2ak’ also helps employ people who are in need of a job,” al-Hassan said. Mohammad Louai, one of those operating the juicing machines, was born with a medical condition which has made it difficult for him to find employment. “This project gives Mohammad a chance to work,” al-Hassan said.

Although the game appears to be rough and jagged to any passerby, anyone watching for more than five minutes would notice that there’s more to the game than just the obvious hitting and falling. “This is more than just a game, it isn’t like basketball or football, it’s tough and waits for no one,” said assistant coach, Ghassan Dandach. “This game requires you to become a completely different person, and I doubt any rugby player would say it wasn’t life-changing for him.” Since the start of the year, the rugby team has faced several changes, the most formidable being the recruitment of new players. “Honestly, I’m not going to say it is easy.” said captain of the rugby team, Kamal Ali, when asked about the issue. “Many old players left and many new players arrived.

The team played again Friday against University of Balamand. The game ended in a 38-6 loss. Samar Abou Lteif, a freshman, said, “Their games with LAU and Balamand are both really interesting. I’m definitely not a fan of rough sports, but the game had tension and excitement. I’d advise anyone to watch it.” Almost every team member agreed that rugby has changed his life in many ways. Elie Al-Chaer, a new player in the team said, “I didn’t expect this. This team has become more of a brotherhood than anything.” Altogether, AUB has embraced the game of rugby, and enhanced it more than anyone would have ever anticipated.

I chose AUB as I had fond memories of AUB from the early 70’s, as I spent a lot of time here hanging out with students at that time. I felt that it would be great to come back and spend some time working with students in the areas that I had been teaching in. How do you further develop yourself, as an artist and professional? I spend every summer back in Australia working in my studio and travelling to other states to see new work that is being developed by other artists.

I’m restoring an old family home, and building an identity back into the landscape of Lebanon, which I feel strongly about, and I’m revamping it, where I retranslate it from a box into something else. I’ve built my own studio with my own hands in Australia. It’s like living within one of your spaces.

Never too late

Kanzi Kamel News Executive

“Hi! What’s your name? Nice to meet you. What’s your major?” Cue the internal groan at the inevitable look of sympathy. Answering with the ever clichéd “it’s complicated” has never been so defeating. As typical as it is for students in university to change their major throughout their education, doing so has never been easy. Countless factors influence the decision, and some result in greater consequences than others. Family, time, career certainty and salary are just some of the reasons some might choose, say, computer science over media and communications. But, hypothetically speak-

ing, let’s suppose someone did take a leap of faith, and majored in what they loved to do—not what they think they should do. How bad could it be? First things first: family. Having Arab parents comes with numerous subclauses, which most of us Arab children are all too familiar with. Doctor, lawyer or engineer—the three golden career paths. The only three acceptable career paths. Stray into something any less respectable and you’ve bought a one-way ticket to being the child parents like to describe as “exploring her options” at dinner parties. This easily segues into career certainty and salary. “How are you supposed to raise your

Somewhat happy holidays

Sarah Khalil Member-at-Large

Nov. 22 was a strange day for me. Blinking away the grainy sleep from my eyes at the crack of 11 a.m. on a day I had off anyway, I confronted a hilariously divided Facebook news feed: a mashup of statuses about Lebanese Independence Day and American Thanksgiving. I suppose it reflects the medley of identities my friends seem to possess like one would the plague, but the contrast between such mixed signals was nothing short of delightful. One friend’s status: “Happy Thanksgiving/Lebanese Independence day! Food and freedom: things we should all be grateful for.” Too right, I suppose, although her sister hit the nail a bit more on the head with “Happy kill the Native Americans day!” Many people probably don’t know that relations between the Native Americans and the pilgrims were nothing short of difficult, considering the whole colonialism thing. It just gets lost in all the tinsel and holly being drawn out of storage in preparation for upcoming Christmas. What, I wonder, does that

say about other countries, like our Lebanon? What is the source of a person’s pride in their nation? Why are they ever proud? On Thursday, I found myself more frustrated by the traffic jams caused by band practice on every road I happened to pass on my way home than I was proud to be Lebanese. Just as it goes for so many other national holidays in the world, I feel as though Lebanese Independence Day has dissolved into a day celebrated simply for the heck of it. If we as Lebanese citizens genuinely felt pride at our own country’s independence from the countless colonial powers to have held us throughout history, would we be mixing as much Arabic and French as we possibly could into our everyday discourse? Would we be stuck in our rut of perpetual division? And as for the all-American Thanksgiving, why are we putting an American holiday on par with our national independence? I find both ironic because both holidays have, despite what most protest, lost their meaning in the midst of all the hullabaloo. Call me a naysayer, if you want. I love holidays

family working as a journalist?” and “People in that major don’t get jobs” are just the beginning of daily remarks your parents will undoubtedly try to include in every conversation. But hey, let’s not generalize. Many parents out there are accepting of any which major, and we all know our parents just want what’s “best” for us. But, I ask, in the typical teenage-angst fashion, what if what they want for us isn’t what we want for ourselves? Herein lies the greater issue: the personal consequences of being so indecisive, you’ve become “that one chick who keeps changing her major.” Not only do people stop taking you seriously when discussing career options (“You want

just as much as everyone else does, and I would have gladly waved a turkey leg in one hand and a Lebanese flag in the other all day long. But you all know as well as I do that that’s not what it’s about. Who took a moment out of their drizzling November day to sit and really consider what it means to be a part of an independent nation? Are we really independent? Does it really matter, with the current state of affairs in Lebanon? I say it does, especially when I ponder developments just over the border in the past couple weeks. Why be caught up in other nations’ holidays? What does Thanksgiving even mean to people on the other side of the ocean? There’s a reason we take a day off to commemorate these things, and it’s not just to sleep in on a weekday or employ a trending hashtag. If you’re going to raise a cheer about a holiday, do yourself a favor and have a good, long think. Beyond the marching bands, traffic jams, Facebook statuses and food, beyond the sales running rampant in department stores as we draw evercloser to Christmas, there lies a real reason for it all.

to be an optometrist? Tell me that again tomorrow and I’ll believe you.”), but you find yourself suddenly out of time to do, well, anything. If you’re the kind of person who enters university knowing exactly what you want to do, I envy you. In retrospect, choosing my major by “eeny meeny miny mo” was not the best idea. Now, only a year away from graduation, I find myself at odds. I dislike my major. I don’t know what I want to do. And, somehow, it’s okay. Coming to terms with my uncertainty was perhaps the best thing I’ve done in my time here at AUB. It’s the most natural thing in the world not to know what the future will bring. Upperclassmen will

understand it when I say that their years in AUB have probably changed them. Freshmen and sophomores will come to see that what they once knew for certain might soon become a preposterous notion entirely. In the end, to use the inevitable cliché, it’s never too late. If life wasn’t about changing, then suicide rates would skyrocket, the Beatles would never have broken up, and I wouldn’t be in this situation at all. So, if you’re ever in need of assurance, remember “that one crazy girl,” chuckle at my expense, and don’t be afraid to embrace whatever might be awaiting you, because, in the words of Nancy Thayer, “it’s never too late—in fiction or in life—to revise.”

Clean Out Your Closet Keep the community warm Yara Zeitoun Staff Writer As the seasons change amidst the panic of midterms, have you looked at your wardrobe, and noticed that—quite frankly—it’s a downright mess? The Lebanese Red Cross has the perfect solution for you and your unhappy closet. They would like to inspire you to be part of their clothes collection campaign, where you can help your community and your closet. They will take your old, ripped or notso-great clothes you got from your lovely yet tasteless great aunt. The timing couldn’t be more perfect: the weather is forcing you to swap your summer wardrobe for winter, so you have to be cleaning anyways. The rule of thumb is, if you haven’t worn it for three months, you won’t wear it again. And, some needy person would be much happier with it than you are now—it just takes up space in your already overflowing closet. Red Cross has made it easy for you by placing boxes

in dorms and at West Hall and Penrose Gate to collect your clothes, shoes and other items. Stands will be open from Tuesday until Dec. 5, so you will have the weekend to clean out your closet. They are attempting to collect a large amount of clothing and blankets this year, and drive to the North and South, and give the clothes to Syrian immigrants and other people in need. Also, if you have no clothes to donate, they do take monetary donations, (the smallest amount helps) and they plan on buying blankets for those in need to last through the winter. Do your closet—and yourself—a favour, and clean out your closet. Give clothes, Give Warmth!

Karim Hakawati, Business Administration, Junior: I would get parking for all students. It’s the biggest concern we have.

Sally Ayoub, Business, Sophomore: I would renovate the chairs and tables in the classrooms, especially in the older buildings around campus.

Natalie Humsi, Political Studies and Public Administration, Senior: I would reduce all the bureaucratic red tape we students face.

Manal Kahaly, Landscape Design, Senior: I would increase access to parking for students.

Rayan Chehade, Economics, Sophomore: I would cancel Math 201 because it’s a really hard and complicated course.

Hady Kamel, Business, Senior: I’d introduce a local population of dogs to offset the cats.

Yara Chdeid, Majorless, Sophomore & Saleh Taha, Business, Sophomore: “I’d ban ketchup from the cafeteria, because I have a fear of ketchup and because it’s wobbly.” I’d allow argileh on campus, in the designated smoking sections around campus. Christophe Hage, Environmental Health, Sophomore & Christelle Harb, Psychology, Sophomore: I would make the elections more about the students, not about political parties. Secondly, I would increase the time given for students to complete exams. I would put music on campus, because we have a lot of stress, so the music could help AUB students.

In the beaten path: Überhaus club re-opens Graphics cards: computer Nour Turkmani time with a different theme or like Maya Jane Coles and the Staff Writer concept. likes hypnotize dancers all visualization mechinary Tired of your typical Beirut clubs, and seeking something unique and different? Then Überhaus is the place for you. The underground dance nightclub in Hamra, finally re-opened Friday before last and everyone had something great to say about it. AUB civil engineering student, Serge Jeghalian, said, “The music was great, the atmosphere was crazy, and the service was even better. In fact, I got a free drink. I’ve been to many clubs before, but Überhaus is simply beyond belief.” This is because Überhaus isn’t just any club; it has history, authenticity and wildness. As its Facebook page states, “We were the nu-underground. Back in the 1900s we ate the bourgeoisie, and smelled good while we pissed pop. We burned red carpets and swung naked from chandeliers. We had the ace of spades always up our sleeves. We never checked our coats, left the candles burning and always checked out late. And now, we are back from the future.” Located in Leon Street in Hamra, the club opens every Friday and Saturday, each

With only 14 tables, the moderately small Überhaus still manages to be equipped with Dynacord speakers and interactive RGB Led lighting, with a modified pixel wall behind the DJ booth that ensures the sensational music is backed up with an exclusive atmosphere. With its sole purpose being to define itself unlike any other club, Überhaus calls out more specifically to uncompromising electronic music lovers. According to its proprietors, the club is the “all-dancing and all-punching social-faux pas of this city’s nightscape.” “We decided to take on this project to breathe new life into our city,” entertainment manager and resident DJ Romax Maurer told Gino’s Blog. “Überhaus is here to establish Beirut as a must-hit destination for electronic music’s most talented artists ... We’re looking more to the future than to the past. This is a club about the now, this is about audio culture.” In an interview with The Daily Star, Maurer further went on to explain how in the past, nightlife in Beirut was always focused on spending the night gathered around tables. He said that this club will focus more on the dance floor, as the Techno-greats l


night long. “With all honesty I would tell you that the opening of Überhaus served as a night like no other,” said AUB student Sara Samad. “The music was great. The lights had me dizzy, but in a good way. And this club had a touch of darkness and authenticity I have not experienced anywhere.” Überhaus definitely offers one of those experiences that you can’t miss. It is dedicated to those party people seeking something new, different and bold. So if you’re one of those people, with a thirst for an experience unlike any other and haven’t been able to quench it just yet, you definitely know exactly where to spend your next weekend.

The more control you have on the gears, the easier driving becomes. Graphics cards have two major parts the average consumer should look out for: the number of cores and the amount of dedicated VRAM. Just like in a processor, imagine there are hamsters in a graphics card, except instead of four different hamsters going a colossal speeds, you have a colossal number of hamsters going at middling to fast speeds. These hamsters are the cores. Generally, graphics cards with a few hundred cores (600-750) are good, but buy one with more only if you want to play very high-end games. VRAM should be pretty self-explanatory. The “v” stands for video and we’ve already established that RAM is the computer’s short-term memory. VRAM is a section of this short term memory

Environmental Column: Internal factors drain Lebanon’s water

Yara Zeitoun Staff Writer

After last week’s introduction to the problems Lebanon faces regarding water, it should be clear that the country, relatively speaking, has a good amount of water, but that the problem is mismanagement. But how much water does Lebanon really get? Although Mediterranean in climate, Lebanon is known to have one of the greatest amounts of rainfall in the Middle East, along with Turkey and Iran. It is estimated that the country has an average yearly flow

of 8,600 million cubic meters, and an average coastal rainfall of approximately 893 millimeters per year, all of which give rise to 40 major streams and rivers, and more than 2000 springs. This is why Lebanon is known as the “the envy of more arid regional countries” like neighboring country Jordan. To get an idea of just how much rainfall this country receives, Deir Alla, Jordan, does not get more than 70 millimeters of rain per month. Lebanon is geographically blessed. The World Bank stated that Lebanon has water resources “equivalent to 1,100 cubic meters per capita, one of the

highest levels in the Middle East and North Africa region,” yet problems still exist, due to government carelessness. Lebanon’s water is decreasing in quality and quantity, and “is poised to experience a water deficit within 10 to 15 years.” The solutions are obvious, yet nothing has been done yet: governmental bodies must increase investments for sewage and groundwater infrastructure, as well as attempt to catch rain, rather than let it flow on asphalt directly to the sea. On a social level, the government must enforce water saving awareness throughout

all of Lebanon’s education systems. The Lebanese population is not taught to preserve water, but rather wastes it by leaving nearly full water bottles behind or letting tap water run. Externally, global warming is also affecting Lebanon’s water resources. As a coastal country, Lebanon faces issues with rising sea levels. Seawater intrudes into pure aquifers (reserves of water), leaving them unusable. Yet another external issue is Lebanon’s aggressively warm summer season, which does not give its groundwater a chance to replenish itself. “The recklessness with

Even you are not immune: Cholesterol in young adults Joy Ismail Special to Outlook

Cholesterol is something we have all heard about, mostly from our parents, uncles or grandparents. We watch the older people in our families eat in moderation and eliminate fats from their diets because high cholesterol levels can lead to cardiovascular diseases or a stroke. However, what most people do not know is that cholesterol is no longer an issue for older individuals only. Nowadays, young adults are dealing with high cholesterol levels even at the age of 20.

Cholesterol is a molecule in our body that, if present in high amounts in the blood, could lead to the blockage of arteries by forming plaque. High-density lipoprotein and low-density lipoprotein are two different molecules that affect levels of cholesterol in the body. HDL is good for the body because it collects the excess cholesterol in the tissues and blood. On the other hand, LDL contains a lot of cholesterol and circulates in the blood, contributing to the building of plaque in arteries. A diet high in saturated fat can increase the levels of LDL in

the blood. With the advance in new scientific research, it is becoming increasingly obvious that young individuals are not at all safe from having high cholesterol levels and health complications. To avoid being at risk of heart disease, blood cholesterol levels should not exceed 200 milligrams per deciliter. However, for one-third of young adults, this is not the case. Genetics, a poor diet, an excessively sedentary lifestyle and obesity are all risk factors. As a result of these findings, health institutions are paying

more attention to the young when it comes to cholesterol. It is now recommended that younger people be tested for cholesterol at least every five years. In families with a medical history of high blood cholesterol and heart disease, even children are being tested. To prevent the development of such diseases, young adults should first be aware that they are not safe from having health issues related to cholesterol. You are what you eat, and if you eat fast-food meals every day then cholesterol is bound to catch up with you sometime. It is much easier for young

Food column: Lebanese organic food directory Nour Turkmani Staff writer

If you’re one of the many people who are looking to go organic in Beirut, you’re in luck. When raiding your grandparent’s orchards for fresh organic fruit isn’t an option, try visiting one of Beirut’s organic food stores. If you live in the Hamra area and are looking for a place to buy organic produce, be sure to check out Souk el Ard every Tuesday, right outside Bread Republic. This market will give you a chance to buy the freshest local produce in an urban environment. Many organic foods

are sold there, although not all of them have been certified yet. Beirut Health Store is another must-see store for the organic food lover. Located on Makdessi Street, it offers a wide range of organic products, beyond produce. If you live farther away or just want to pick up some organic products at your regular grocery store, be on the lookout for Biomass products, which are local, organic, certified and carried by most major grocery stores in Lebanon. You can also visit A New Earth Organic Store in Zahrat El Ihsan Street in Ashrafieh for a cozy marketplace, Al

Marej Organic Food Store, also in Ashrafieh, on Abdel Wahab El Inglizi Street or Souk el Tayeb every Saturday at Saifi Village. AUB has also been actively encouraging organic food farming in Lebanon. Healthy Basket, a certified organic food project started in 2001 by AUB has gained quite the following. The project works with a network of local organic farmers and distributes the in-season products weekly to customers’ doorsteps in baskets. Healthy Basket also has a store on Adonis Street in Hamra and participates in the Tuesday Earth Market.

You can sign up online to have your fruits and veggies delivered weekly or drop by the store in person to pick some up. For the online shopping lovers, will also deliver to you the freshest Lebanese organic produce with just a few clicks. Finally, if you’re interest in organic restaurants in the area, check out Brisk on Hamra Street for the classic European “self-serve” concept and tasty organic food, or Tawlet in Mar Mikhael Street for some organic Lebanese food. Although organic certification is still a growing industry in Lebanon, there is willing-

which Lebanon’s water is wasted is nothing short of criminal,” said reporter from NOW, Hanin Ghaddar. “Before it is too late, the Lebanese policymakers and public alike must recognize the need for proper water management.” It is a sad day when Lebanon’s government is careless enough to beat global warming in the destruction of the only and most important natural resource, water.

people to work around cholesterol, because their bodies tolerate new habits more than older adults’ bodies. Nothing should be forbidden from their diet, but foods that are very heavy in saturated fats should be consumed in moderation. These include fried foods, lard and butter. Whole grains and other fiber-containing foods such as fruits and oats should replace these fatty meals whenever possible. Exercise and a normal body weight are also recommended.

ness from both farmers and consumers to get into the organic food craze. We can control what we put into our bodies, and shelling out a few extra dollars for pesticide-free, nutritious products seems well worth it. It seems that the only sector of Lebanese organic products that is still lagging behind is meat. Try opting for your local butcher rather than the meat section of a larger grocery store. For the time being, that’s the best you can hope for.

Album Review: Every Kingdom – Ben Howard

Yara Zeitoun Staff Writer

If you haven’t heard of Ben Howard, you need to YouTube his music immediately. That is, immediately after reading this article. First, an introduction is necessary. A British musician and hardcore surfer, Ben Howard is 25 years old, but has the experience and talent of someone in his 40s. Surfing is an important part of his life. It is

his muse, and you can almost taste the saline water when listening to his albums. Many of his interviews, reveal that he became famous because of playing for surfing communities all over the world. My ears wilt and drool at the very first strum of his newest album, “Every Kingdom.” He sings with spirited passion, and yet he is real and my, what a rarity to find such emotion in today’s plethora

of cheap music. His music and lyrics are authentic, and genuine to him and his life. The album was produced by a simple three-person band comprised of him, a female cellist/singer/guitarist and a drummer. Most songs begin with rhythmic finger plucking for the first few measures, followed by a soft undertone of steady, but not overwhelming drumming. Then, occasionally, you’ll find a crescendo of

cello crawling up and out that blends in the loveliest of ways with the music. But, my favourite part of the album is Howard’s singing. His voice is soothing and chocolatey, like a cup of hot cocoa. It’s comforting and makes you warm from the inside out, like sitting next to a crackling fire on a cold day. My advice? Buy the album now, and set “The Wolves” as your morning alarm. Trust me, it will give you a rea-

the impressively ripped Taylor Lautner, went shirtless (as usual) for about 90 percent of the film. Thankfully, this detracted from his less-than Hollywood-worthy acting. Surprisingly enough, “Breaking Dawn Part 2,” also had an extremely well-staged fight sequence in which more than one of the most irritating vampires had their heads ripped off and burned. To my immense disappointment (those avoiding spoilers would do well to skip the rest of this story) the scene ended, only to have never happened. That’s right folks, the highlight of the entire four movies was just a vision. One of Alice’s visions of the future, to be precise, and one that was avoided in the end. The film ended as typically as ever: Bella and Edward holding hands, skipping off in the sunset, and wiping the fresh blood of their most recent kill off their chins. Thank God that’s over.

For a thousand years in the harbor

When in plural form, I keep girls warm.

My situation allows for little motion.

Has been the shelter, has been the shield.

I’m never loose and that’s the truth.

Have you ever been that patient

What am I?

To watch patience, to learn patience? Answer: Tight
