George and Amal Clooney said Monday they would help 3,000 Syrian refugee children go to school in Lebanon this year, where the United Nations says 200,000 children are not receiving an education after fleeing the war in neighboring Syria. The Clooney Foundation for Justice said it has teamed up with Google and HP Inc to help the U.N. children's agency UNICEF and the Lebanese Ministry of Education open seven so-called "second shift" schools for Syrian refugee children. Lebanon has more than 1 million Syrian refugees, including nearly 500,000 children. It is educating Syrian children in public schools through a "second shift" system of additional afternoon classes exclusively for them. "We don't want to lose an entire generation because they had the bad luck of being born in the wrong place at the wrong time," said Oscar-winning actor George Clooney and international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney, who gave birth to twins last month. "Thousands of young Syrian refugees are at risk - the risk of never being a productive part of society," the couple said in a statement. "Formal education can help change that." A $3.25 million donation from the Clooney Foundation for Justice, Google and HP will pay for transportation, school supplies, computers, content, curriculum and teacher training. A spokesman for the Clooneys' foundation, Max Gleischman, said the organization had decided to support education for Syrian refugees through the public school system, instead of investing in private schools operated by SABIS, an international company which has prepared students for college and high school exams. The foundation had announced last year that it would work to enroll thousands of children in SABIS schools. A crackdown by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on pro-democracy protesters in 2011 led to civil war, and Islamic State (IS) militants used the chaos to seize territory in Syria and Iraq. Half of Syria's 22 million people have been uprooted and more than 400,000 killed. More»

Arabic pop singer Amr Diab’s latest album ‘Ma’di Al Nas’ became the most popular hashtag on Twitter less than an hour after the album cover art was publicized on Monday. The Egyptian multi-award-winning singer, dubbed ‘al-Hadaba’ (translated: the unbeatable) by fans, graces the cover of his new album, looking anything but 55. Diab’s previous album ‘Ahla w Ahla’, released in April 2016, featured top hits like ‘Ragea’, ‘Rasmaha’ and ‘Malak Qalby’. The singer won the World Music Award for best-selling Middle Eastern Artist seven times between 1998 and 2014. Additionally, Diab ranked in the top slot on iTunes when his 2013 and 2014 albums launched. Guinness World Records listed Diab as the top Arab award-winning musician and the best-selling Middle Eastern musician since 1989. More»

The 29-year-old singer has been on the road since 29 February last year, performing one sold-out gig after another to her adoring legions of fans. There have been plenty of memorable moments along the way- and plenty of bad language too. According to The Sun, her Wembley date earlier this week contained 56 swear words. Here are six classic moments that ensured it wasn't just her vocals that her fans went home remembering.If Adele's fans want to stand up to watch her sing, they can damn well stand up. More»

Lebanon's ministry of economy says it has asked the country's security agency to ban the 2017 Wonder Woman movie because its lead actress, Gal Gadot, is an Israeli. A senior security official says no formal request has been received yet, and that the ban would require a recommendation from a six-ministry-member committee. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.  Posters of the film have appeared on the streets of Beirut. At least one cinema has an advance screening Wednesday, including free popcorn for members. More»

They didn’t call her “the star of the masses” or “a box office star” or any other common descriptors. Instead they call Faten Hamama, “the lady of the Arab silver screen.” The iconic Egyptian actress was born on 27 May 1931, and passed away at the age of 84 on 17 January 2015. After all, the masses change and the movie stars change with them. A box office star can’t be such at all artistic stages of his career. In addition, the commercial significance of the star doesn’t necessarily go in line with critics’ viewpoint. But the title “lady of the Arab silver screen” is a permanent and durable title or description that isn’t linked to an artistic stage or a particular age, and is attributed neither to the audience alone nor exclusively to the critics. It is also a title that can’t be withdrawn or stripped from the person to whom it belongs. It is a statement of recognition that all the audience, whether the masses or the critics, gave to this woman, who respected the moniker and bore the responsibilities of this special stature. More»

Gregg Allman, whose soulful vocals made the Allman Brothers Band one of rock's top acts in the 1970s with songs such as "Whipping Post," in a career also marred by tragedy and drug abuse, died on Saturday at the age of 69, his official website said. "It is with deep sadness that we announce that Gregg Allman, a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band, passed away peacefully at his home in Savannah, Georgia," it said. Drummer Butch Trucks, another founding member of the band, died aged 60 on January 24. More»
