V for Verdict: Ex-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak finally gets his due -LIFE- for his role in deaths of unarmed Egyptian protesters last year at Tahrir Square, but, curiously, skates on the corruption charges, leading to chants of outrage in courtroom from indignant Egyptians




Telegraph TV video:Ex-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak finally gets his due -LIFE- for his role in deaths of unarmed Egyptian protesters last year at  Tahrir Square, but, curiously, skates on the corruption charges, leading to chants of outrage in courtroom from indignant Egyptians. June 2, 2012. http://youtu.be/VTZbDc0ma9o



CAIRO — An Egyptian judge on Saturday sentenced former President Hosni Mubarak to life in prison for the killing of unarmed demonstrators during protests that ended his rule. It was the first verdict of an Arab ruler brought before the law by a popular revolt and for many Egyptians it may be the greatest achievement so far of the uprising that ended his rule.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Broward County, someone -perhaps you- is likely to be heard saying the following while walking the aisles of Home Depot after first hearing this news on their car radio about the no-go on the corruption charges that seemed like a slam dunk:
"I didn't know that Mike Satz had a cousin in Egypt who was also a prosecutor."

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
