The comprehensive study, which delved into the topic of loneliness and looked at what factors can be associated with it, found that 51.1% of those with a disability were moderately lonely, while a further 6.1% were either severely or very severely lonely – over three times higher than the rate of severe or very severe loneliness in people without a disability. Overall, 43.4% of all participan.
Moviment Graffitti is organising a protest in front of the Malta Developers Association (MDA) offices this Tuesday following the building collapses that have happened around the island. Graffitti has invited residents and resident associations from various localities in Malta to show their displeasure at the way they have been treated by the developers’ lobby "and their dictatorship.
A man tried to set his daughter alight because the clothes she was wearing were "too western", but his lighter malfunctioned and she managed to run away, Italian media report. The incident took place in the northern town of Arcade, close to Treviso. The 15-year-old girl was deemed by the father as being too western because the dress she was wearing had short sleeves. Her father doused her in fuel, but the lighter malfunctioned.
The government’s decision to suspend demolition and excavation work until new regulations are implemented, for Labour MEP Alfred Sant, is a "too little, too late" measure which will not solve the crisis. The construction industry "continues to plough forward at full blast, where all are in it for themselves, often in abusive mode," he writes in today’s blog. There are too many vested interests and the authorities do not have enough resources to cope with developments, Sant writes. Read blog here.
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of the auxiliary bishop of the Chilean capital city just 24 days after he appointed him to the post, church officials said. Bishop Carlos Eugenio Irarrázabal had become embroiled in controversy after he recently said there were no women at the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples so "we have to respect that."
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg (BOO'-tuh-juhj) wants to start a family with his husband, Chasten, and says that could happen if he's in the White House. "I don't see why not," the South Bend, Indiana, mayor says in a Father's Day television interview that also marked his one-year wedding anniversary. He tells CNN's "State of the Union" that "it wouldn't be the first time that children have arrived to a first couple, but obviously that's a conversation I had better have with Chasten before I go into it too much on television. Buttigieg is seeking to become the first openly gay presidential nominee from a major political party.
Maurizio Sarri left Chelsea on Sunday after one season to return to Italy to manage Juventus. The former Napoli coach has joined Serie A champion Juventus on a three-year contract to replace Massimiliano Allegri. The 60-year-old Sarri won the Europa League with Chelsea, beating Arsenal in his final game in charge last month, and he also led the team to third place in the Premier League. "In talks we had following the Europa League final, Maurizio made it clear how strongly he desired to return to his native country, explaining that his reasons for wanting to return to work in Italy were significant," Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said.
Proposed changes to construction regulations will be formally published on Monday, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said. Speaking in a pre-recorded interview, Muscat said that halting all excavation and demolition works was a "clear and obvious choice to make". Through an analysis he had asked for, delving into the legal situation, it was clear that the laws exist in Malta and that the main issue is that a minority of people try to find a "ventilator to pass through", he said. "I had already decided on Thursday morning, in the meeting with the stakeholders in the development sector, that I was going to make this decision.
More than 700 members of the Malta Pro-Choice Discussion Group are looking to set up a fund with the goal of financing a case before the Constitutional Court, sources have informed this newspaper. The debate over legalizing abortion has recently resurfaced, with a number of pro-choice groups springing up, along with other existing groups also ramping up the rhetoric.
Patients lining up in a row waiting for their medicine; pills distributed in little transparent cups, with nurses watching over them; patients being asked to open their mouths to make sure they have swallowed their medicine. Scenes from the Florence Nightingale era, you would imagine. No, this is the day-to-day reality seen in Mount Carmel Hospital, a healthcare professional tells The Malta Independent on Sunday . On condition of anonymity, the healthcare professional described these methods as “so degrading”. Even the way the patients are served food is demeaning, he said, explaining why it is so important that if the hospital is to be moved, then considerable investment needs to be made in re-training the staff. This newsroom also spoke t.
An electoral campaign should be planned by a strategy team which is distinct from the parliamentary group, journalist Dione Borg said. This week on Indepth, Editor-in-Chief Rachel Attard hosted Borg, a PN candidate for the last MEP election, and Executive Editor of MaltaToday Matthew Vella to discuss the situation the Nationalist Party finds itself in following its historic defeat in the recent elections. When it was pointed out by the host that the previous guest, ex-President of the Executive Committee of the Nationalist Mark Anthony Sammut, had claimed that the PN's campaign team was composed of three people and shrouded in secrecy, Borg explained that every political party has its own strategy team which would not be made up of all the
The reforms recommended by the Venice Commission should be presented together as a whole package so that everyone can see whether or not they are adequate, Dutch MP and Council of Europe Special Rapporteur Pieter Omtzigt told The Malta Independent on Sunday. Asked by this newspaper whether he was content with the piecemeal approach that the Maltese government has taken to implement the recommendations of the Venice Commission, Omtzigt replied in the negative. He noted that the report which he had compiled and which was adopted on 29 May by the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly, states that Malta should implement the reform packages of the Venice Commission and GRECO “in their entirety” and that “reforms should be designed and imple.
The Nationalist Party’s parliamentary group is set to meet again on Tuesday. While the resignation of embattled leader Adrian Delia is not on the cards, PN MPs speaking to this newspaper yesterday said that they are expecting some “concrete proposals” on the way forward and on the quagmire the party is in. Speaking on condition of anonymity, given the situation’s sensitivity and the rule that what is said in the parliamentary group stays within the parliamentary group, the MPs who did give carefully measured comments said that Delia is expected to have come up with proposals on the many changes to the Party and its workings for which many MPs are clamouring. Delia will no doubt have some difficult decisions before him, with MPs wanting a he.
Why was the Life after Drew campaign set up? Three years ago, nearly to the day, my wife Sharon and I lost our son Drew after he suffered a brain haemorrhage. Before we were even asked to donate his organs, Sharon immediately requested that we do so. We set up ‘Life after Drew’ as my wife Sharon wanted to create something that would become a legacy synonymous with our son Drew’s name. Since we experienced this first hand, we felt that we needed to create more awareness on the subject of organ donation, also acting as an education campaign in which people were encouraged to discuss this sensitive subject whilst simultaneously paying tribute to Drew and the many, many people who – like him – gave others a second chance of life. How was the ca.
Every ministry and government entity should employ qualified planners within their teams to come up with an integrated approach to improve the country, while planning itself must be focused on the common good, Anthony Ellul and Chris Attard from the Malta Chamber of Planners told The Malta Independent on Sunday in an interview. The Malta Chamber of Planners was constituted in 1997, after a number of people began graduating from planning courses which became available after the Planning Authority (PA) was set up in 1992.
From Angela Merkel to Christine Lagarde and, until recently, Theresa May, there are many high-profile female politicians and, at a local level, Malta is not without successful women in leading roles. With such a high profile comes an ever-increasing spotlight on the personal lives of such women: do they have children, what are their partners like, how do they juggle the demands of home and work life?
The battle of the posters has taken a new twist as anti-Delia activists found a different way of passing on their message against the beleaguered PN leader. This time, they used the GWU newspaper It-Torca as background for their protest against Delia, affixing a huge photo of him with the words "Let Delia work". It is a not-so-subtle message which implies that Labour wants Delia to remain at the helm because, with him there, Labour will continue to win. In the past days anti-Delia activists affixed posters against the leader on the facade of PN clubs, with pro-Delia supporters doing the same the following night.
Taking the stage Saturday at an Italian conference on justice, Amanda Knox accused the media of having built a false narrative around her during her yearslong murder trial and appeals process, depicting her as guilty even though she was eventually acquitted. The former exchange student from the United States who became the focus of a sensational murder case returned to Italy this week for the first time since an appeals court acquitted her in 2011 in the slaying of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher. Knox, speaking in Italian on a panel discussion at the Criminal Justice Festival in Modena titled "Trial by media," said she was depicted "on the global scene as cunning, psychopath, drug-addicted, whore.
