Emad Barsoum writes: Inflation, Gas Prices… The way out

Every morning you wake up, there is a new increase in the prices of goods and services; hikes are at a rapid pace that hasn’t been experienced for so many years. It is very well known that the significant drive for such an increase in prices is directly contributed to the extreme surge in crude oil prices globally.

Emad Barsoum writes: Another Term… Another Hope

The dust finally settled on the provincial elections last week. The campaigning and elections were not the toughest compared to previous provincial elections, they were relatively swift and without much sweat from all different candidates and parties’ leaders.  Indeed, nothing about the results was unpredicted or a surprise; however, the disappointing fact was that fewer voters went to the polls in respect ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Torn between two… Gas or Electric

The world is still divided between the global warming issue, the environmental challenges, and the earth's future all the while man is destroying it with fossil fuels. We are not going to take any sides or add any scientific input or theories. Instead, it is a conversation around Fuel vs. Electric vehicles and the future of the automotive industry.  Automotive buyers have been demonstrating impulsive and em ...

Emad Barsoum writes: The Party of the Parties

When we were young, I remember going to parties with many friends, whether we knew all or some of them. Once we entered the party, we saw some dancing, others eating, drinking, or smoking; everyone is doing whatever they prefer. We were so excited, acting like children, who have just received a new toy or their favorite chocolate bar from their grandfather. Still, it is a variety of non-similar activities a ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Media and Public opinion in the times of War

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  These were the words and doctrine of Joseph Goebbels, who was the second most important man in the German Nazi Party, and the Minister of Propaganda for Adolf Hitler’s regime. His job was to create public opinions in favor of the party’s ideologies and goals, direct the mass crowds of the Germans to believe in ...

Emad Barsoum writes: Racism in the time of War

After WWII, humanity strived for decades to prevent the eruption of wars and armed conflicts. Still, it never achieved success. Simply Utopia is against human nature. The stories from ancient civilizations and the books and verses of the Abrahamic religions tell us a lot about the first human conflicts and killings, Seth Vs. Osiris and Seth Vs. Horus in Egyptian mythology, then Cain and Abel in the three Ab ...

During what was called "The Arab Spring," which erupted in some Middle Eastern countries at the beginning of 2011 and resulted in the fall of several totalitarian regimes', there was a phenomenon, or an assumed conspiracy theory called "The Third Party". This third party was the unseen responsible person(s) for any act of violence, civil unrest, sabotage, or any aggression against the mass citizens who requ ...

Emad Barsoum: Snow day at work

When they were still at school, I remember how my children expressed their ecstatic happiness when they woke up one winter day, and we told them it was a snow day, no going to school. Their happiness is mainly driven not from being home but by the opportunity to spend the day playing in the snow with neighbors and friends. It is one of the pleasant moments for the parents as well watching the joy in their c ...

About two years ago, and just before the Pandemic, my friend was rushed to the Emergency one night, suffering from severe renal colic caused by a kidney stone, a pre-existing condition. As usual, the ER was packed; many people showed deep and different symptoms. Suddenly one of the patients, a senior person, loudly expressed his resentment and pain, waiting for a long time to be seen by a doctor.  One of th ...
