President al-Assad: Syria Will Remain the Beating Heart of Arabism














President Bashar al-Assad on Monday received a delegation of Jordanian political activists, lawyers, doctors and engineers.




The meeting tackled the situation in the region in general and Syria in particular, with the delegation members voicing the Jordanian people’s support for the Syrian people in their current ordeal.




They affirmed that honest Arabs will not leave Syria alone in the face of the conspiracies against it, and that the Syrian blood which was shed was in defense of all honest Arabs and that it will write Syria’s coming victory.




The delegation members said that the targeting of Syria isn’t new or surprising since it’s a country that has been carrying the burden of Arab causes for decades, lauding Syria’s firm stances in adherence to Arab dignity, rights and Arab causes which put it in a position of honorable confrontation with the enemies of the nation.




For his part, President al-Assad thanked the delegation members for their national stances in support of the Syrian people, affirming that Syria will remain *the beating heart of Arabism* and that it will not relinquish its principles no matter how much pressure is exerted upon it and regardless of the conspiracies that not only target Syria, but also all Arabs.

Report: Cities have hundreds of empty schools










[W]ith more parents choosing charter schools or private options, the need for these aging public buildings has shrunk in cities.




Pew researchers anticipated the number of for-sale buildings will swell in coming years as school districts consolidate their facilities in response to tighter budgets and more families moving out of the cities and into the suburbs.




In Philadelphia alone, 37 schools are set to be closed next year in what would be one of the nation’s largest closings.




That follows the sale of 11 buildings already and another six that are on the market.
