Rambling around town in the beginnings of May, en route to my second shift of the day, I came across an old building in an older part of the city which startled me with its blaringly large white sign which read “Lowell’s Print-Inn”. Now I don’t know anything about the history of the building, but all I could think of was taking a picture of it for Guidepost’s longtime publisher, Dan Lowell, who for many years was in charge of the print version of Guidepost as he is now in charge of the online version.

Notre Dame has been in desperate need of funds for years and, at last, more than $900 million have been pledged by private individuals, firms and public institutions toward the rebuilding effort. To bring an ironically happy end to the tragedy, it may be that the fire will be what will allow France to rebuild the cathedral back to its former glory.

I will be the first one to admit that I am not a very adventurous eater. However, during my short stay in Morocco with a Moroccan family, I was taken on a culinary journey and encouraged to try so many new and traditional dishes that I never would have experienced had I been on my own. Here are my personal recommendations on eight foods you have to sample on your next visit to Morocco. Be adventurous and try the amazing things the country has to offer!
The US Embassy in Jerusalem distances it from other allies who have kept their embassies in Tel Aviv, a more modern and secured city. But Jerusalem has historically been the center of the three great religions that share their roots in the Holy Land: Muslim, Christianity, and Judaism. From the Old Testament to the New, and even in the Koran, Jerusalem still is a bright spot in the dark tragedies of the day
Iceland is a land of misconceptions. There are neither polar bears nor Eskimos on the island, and Detriot gets more snow than Reykjavik. New Yorkers shiver through lower January temperatures than residents here in the world’s northernmost capital. And the landscape’s predominant colour is not white but green
