Animal shelter creates Tinder profiles for lonely animals

Animal shelter creates Tinder profiles for lonely animals
Aug 23 2021 Share

The Munich Animal Welfare Association has shot professional pictures for 15 animals in their care and uploaded them to Tinder with a stunningly positive response. This initiative came after animal welfare experts warned that following a surge in pet ownership due to the pandemic’s loneliness inducing effect, many pets are set to get abandoned. 

The shelter in question got an advertising agency to shoot the photos, uploading photos for dogs and cats alike. These include a black-and-white cat called ‘Captain Kirk’, which were then uploaded to Tinder. Speaking on behalf of the shelter, Jillian Moss said that people are already swiping right on Tinder to set up their first date with the pets, hopefully leading to some happy adoption. ‘There aren’t only lonely souls among humans, but there are also a lot of lonely souls among animals’ she said.

€500 reward for information after beloved stray cat was burnt alive
Aug 23 2021 Share

After a beloved and local favourite stray cat named Tommy was doused in petrol and burned alive, an animal rights NGO is offering up to €500 to anyone with any information on those responsible for such a heinous and barbaric act. The Real Animal Foundation issued the reward on Monday, with coo-founder Romina Frendo stating that all information will be passed on to the police but confidentiality will be respected. 

Police stated that they were investigating the case after receiving a report last Monday that a cat carcass had turned up in Triq il-Polverista in Cospicua. Animal Welfare Commissioner Alison Bezzina stated that such acts of cruelty are ‘despicable and reflective of a dead conscience.’ The killing left animal lovers in shock and disbelief, calling for the quick find of whoever is responsible. Confidential information could be sent via email on [email protected] or 77550550.

MUMN calls €25 million Mater Dei robotics equipment utter failure

MUMN calls €25 million Mater Dei robotics equipment utter failure
Aug 23 2021 Share

The Malta Union of Midwives and Nurses (MUMN) stated that two robotic computer systems installed in 2017 to handle medicine administration were a complete waste of money and an utter failure. The two systems, which were nicknamed ‘Mario’ and ‘Sophia’, were deployed to ensure that no errors occurred when administering drugs and medicine. This however was not the case, as the union alleged how the systems failed so frequently over two whole years that it surpassed any form of human error, making the nurses’ work much more difficult. 

This is because the robotics were prescribing wrong dosages/medications to patients. Union spokespersons pointed out how if it wasn’t for the nurses double and triple checking the drugs, patients would have suffered. Apart from this, Mario and Sophia would cease to work, leaving nurses unable to give any medication. With drug administration having become a nightmare and the project manager having resigned, the MUMN is insisting that the robots should be removed from Mater Dei.

Watch: Fans go crazy as CM Punk returns to professional wrestling

Aug 23 2021 Share

Last Friday on AEW Rampage, CM Punk officially returned to wrestling after 2,763 days out of action. In that time, the fan favourite tried his hand in MMA with UFC and acting in some films and shows. CM Punk, or Phil Brooks’, return didn’t come as a shock to some fans as it has been reported by some wrestling insiders that he will return to wrestling in his hometown of Chicago.

Some fans were captured crying when his entrance song lit up the arena. CM Punk’s return is undoubtedly the most awaited in sports entertainment history. Fans have been holding on for a return from CM Punk ever since he left WWE back in 2014. The wrestler developed a large following after publicly berating WWE’s backroom staff like Vince McMahon.

 

After his monologue, Punk challenged an overseeing Darby Allin to a fight at AEW All Out on the 5th of September in Chicago. To make things harder for the self pronounced best wrestler in the world, Darby Allin will have legendary wrestler Sting ringside.
