(Emad Barsoum writes: The Clash of Generations (2

It was unlikely to receive, from the young generation, responses and feedback on the previous article about the differences and struggle between generations. However, and regardless of the slight positive responses versus enormous negativity, it carried for me much delight to see such interaction and concern to participate in the dialogue.  What dominated the young generation ideas is the sense of conceit t ...

Emad Barsoum writes: The Clash of Generations

A friend came to me one day, from my age group, with a careworn face and with muttered words, why do they not listen? he said. I turned to him wondering, as he is known to be very sarcastic when he shares with his friends any worries or concerns. My friend believes that handling problem with less stress and through a bit of sarcasm helps overcome most of the tension that we might go through while solving ou ...

It is the morning of the first day of the New Year, my daughter, looking through the window towards the empty streets, and in a calm but gloomy voice, she said; a New Year dad but we are still wearing the mask, nothing changed!

Emad Barsoum writes: The Authority of Chickens

In a banana republic you may wake up everyday with a new law, or even a new government, where those who wake up first claim authority. However, this phenomenon is on its way to disappear, due to the increasing awareness of citizens of those small countries, and their quest for modern and civilized life.  A life that is governed by democracy yet with discipline, a state of institutions, that respects the law ...

My friend called me few days ago, with a loud questioning tone asking me, are you a fortune teller? I smiled in a sarcastic way and replied, of course not, but why? He followed by another question, do you remember your article few weeks ago when you expressed your worries, when life would start to go back to its normal pattern after the lock-down, about how some business owners and entrepreneurs would take ...
