GardenGhassanAfter the catastrophic explosion that destroyed the capital Beirut, which was classified by the world media as the fourth strongest explosion in human history after the atomic bomb, I asked Dr. Manoush Qalil to inspect the condition of our chickens following this tragedy.

And since the poultry farms are far from the place of the explosion, Dr. Mannoush Qalil - who is a specialist in the language of animals - went to one of the automated slaughterhouses near the capital, where he was able to address the chickens that were gathered to be slaughtered the next day and he found them still panicking, rotating around themselves and trembling; it looked like a case of collective hysteria among them.

Ghassan RussiaIs there one educated person in this world who did not hear or read this verse from the Noble Qur’an that is translated into all the languages of the world “And we have made from water every living thing”?

Water ... water ... water ... We wrote for decades on the pages of this magazine that water is the cheapest thing, but it is the basis of the poultry industry.

We, the suffering and the heat are living for our chicks…

If only the great musician Abdel Wahab, and the nightingale of the East Abdel Halim Hafez (may they rest in peace) were still with us today, they would have pitied us and sung about our hassle while trying to keep our chicks healthy in summer.

GhassanWhat to Expect after Corona?

A question that might be asked by many.

But the primary question is the following: when will this deadly virus be over? And how many lives will it take?

How can we think about our future and our present reeling in the strongest earthquake that affects humanity since the Second World War?

We do not boast or pride ourselves in keeping us with the age of digital technology and our presence on web pages since its inception, and it has become a necessity of the present era. Everything has become online. Banks, hospitals, armies and public security, even global security has become remotely managed…The world can only be wiped out with the click of a button…

And the worse is yet to come…

Ghassan03After the spread of Coronavirus (Covid 19) in the world we no longer read and hear news about anything other than this disease, which spread with lightning speed in the majority -if not all- of the countries. However, there is funny news - so that I do not say strange - that grabbed my attention because it says:

Scientists at MIGAL Galilee Research Institute may be able to produce a vaccine against coronavirus after about two months of the time of its spread...

Referring to my previous words on this particular topic where I wrote about trying to create mini dinosaurs out of chicken eggs, which was named before it was born as “Chickenosaurus” and of course, I reacted to this very negatively .

GhassanA new year.

What is really new about it?

Every time we try something new, we acknowledge the importance of the old.

We are the Heroes

Let the truth be heard: us farmers in the Arab world, we are heroes.

We deserve the highest of distinctions; even higher that the once given to soldiers who protect their country.

We could sacrifice our lives if that means saving our chickens, because losing them means losing our money and becoming bankrupt, which leads to completely ruining our life.

GhassanWhy a special issue about Egypt? Why today?

The truth is that the idea of this special issue is not new, and this is not the first issue about Egypt since we have issued more than one special in the past…

I don’t know how to start my article and how to keep myself from being confused and hesitant since I had never been used to talk about myself or my parents and especially in this particular section.
And what to do if its specifically about the honoring of my father? Nevertheless, I will start by stating the highlights of the Lebanese media in early April:
            “The Lebanese order of merit to Mr. Antoine Sayegh”

One day I went to visit a farm, and while I was waiting in the reception hall, I noticed a panel hanging on the wall with words instead of a distinctive picture. I was intrigued to get closer to it and read what was written on it: “My dear grandson,

My grandfather’s will to me was to preserve and respect the environment at all cost but the pressure of labor competition and the obsession with reducing production costs have blinded me and has made me forget my grandfather’s will which was: “preserve nature ad leave this planet as clean as you found it.”

One century ago, poultry breeding was still confined to the small households and backyards in rural areas until it has been modernized after the World War II and its name has been changed since then from poultry breeding and production to become poultry industry.
