2300 low-income families to get free laptop and internet
Nov 21 2021 Share

In a bid to bridge the digital divide, a €2 million investment will be giving a free laptop and €300 internet voucher for a whole year to around 2,300 low income families. 

The pilot project called ‘Digital Connect’ was launched by Economy Minister Silvio Schembri and Social Justice and Solidarity Minister Michael Falzon. 

Schembri said that for this scheme, they identified low-income families who have ‘consequently fallen behind in terms of technology and therefore this pilot project is aimed at boosting inclusion and digital skills.’  

For his part, Minister Michael Falzon said that ‘next year, we will be seeing dozens of new social measures as well as others that will continue to be delivers. We want to make sure that no one falls behind, and that everyone enjoys equal opportunities.’

The pilot project is available for those who are currently benefitting from some social security services. Most notably, those who are in possession of a pink card, receive a non-contributory pension, receive social assistance, single parents and those receiving assistance if unemployed.

Nov 20 2021 Share

In one of the most unlikely romances of 2021, it seems like Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are actually dating.

The Daily Mail recently shared a few photos of the TV star and comedian holding hands in Palm Springs, California and, while not being something of complete certainty, it does fall in line with the wave of speculation surrounding the couple in recent months.

Kardashian and Davidson were first linked romantically in a Saturday Night Live sketch, where the even shared an on-screen kiss while acting the scene.

They were later seen holding hands on a rollercoaster in California and while Kardashian had stated that they were just friends and people shouldn’t read into it, their most recent photo with matching outfits posted by Flavor Flav suggests otherwise.
