The 2017 World Predictions – Between reality and illusion, between today and tomorrow

Last year, out of curiosity, I decided to translate the enceredictions of Michel Hayek for the year of 2016. The article proved to be popular so I decided to do a preliminary translation of the 2017 predictions.

Disclaimer:

  1. I am not a professional translator and I do this as a hobby.
  2. I do not claim the accuracy of the translation below.
  3. I did not translate everything. I skipped many things including predictions of events that are very local to the Arab region and Lebanon.
  4. Please watch the original video with the help of an interpreter if you want to know about all of his predictions.

As Michel Hayek said in his interview, the title of his predictions for the year of 2017 is:

Between reality and illusion, between today and tomorrow

The 2016 World Predictions according to Michel Hayek

michel-hayekThis is the first time I decide to translate the 2016 predictions of Michel Hayek, a Lebanese psychic, from Arabic to English and post it on my blog.

I don’t have a stance on predictions and I cannot say whether I believe or don’t believe in them. We, humans, have a lot to learn and discover about our full potential and what we can and cannot do. Bottom line: I am open to all the possibilities.

The reason I decided to translate this video is when I saw on the news that Mark Zuckerberg received threats from the ISIS supporters, which reminded me of one of Michel’s predictions for the year 2016 which was aired in December 31, 2015.
Two things to note before I present the translation:

  1. I am not a professional translator (at least not yet).
  2. I did not translate everything. I skipped many things including predictions of events that are very local to the Arab region and Lebanon.

No Avocado for you! Come back one year!

no avocado for you

I was in Vancouver, BC during a short weekend visit to discover and explore the city. The sun usually sets around 4:30PM this time of year.

I arrived Saturday and I checked in into my hotel room at 4PM, grabbed my umbrella and started walking around.

I wanted to walk in downtown and see much of the streets, the people and various attractions.

I tell you, the city looked vibrant and full of young people. There were lots of Asians as well. For a second I forgot I was in Canada (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

So, basically for me, the biggest “attraction” or the highlight of my exploration on Saturday night was the sheer amount of homeless people asking for money and lying on the streets.

The Pledge of Allegiance

american-flagHi,

I am not a U.S citizen yet but I live here. I did not learn the Pledge of Allegiance at school, but the first time I heard it, it was during a fraternal meeting. I really loved it. Actually I appreciate to learn something on my own than having to be forced to learn in an institution such as school, church or university.

This pledge, in my opinion, holds so many virtues that are worth discussing.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
