The new Badael page in Al-Akhbar: The main article by Ali Darwish of Green Line fame: The absence of political will to develop alternative energies. My editorial: Losing a golden opportunity, or how the reconstruction of the tens of thousands of houses in the South did not include installing solar water heaters on all roofs (could have been included for minimum cost and it would have provided hundreds of jobs). This is the season of "sleeqah", picking wild chicory and other plants. This article talks about how picking wild plants saves on vegetable purchases in the Bekaa and the South. Rajana Hamiyyeh, the latest addition to our team, writes about the new economical lamps.
