Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page deemed the world’s sexiest man

Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page deemed the world's sexiest man
Jan 27 2023 Share

Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page has just been deemed, according to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, the most handsome man in the world. 

The 34-year-old Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is a British actor known for his breakout role in the Netflix series. He played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in Season 1. 

The Golden Ratio Test reportedly test rates a person’s facial beauty based on how close their facial proportions are to the ratio. It was called the ‘Divine Proportion; by the Pythagoreans and it is a mathematical value called phi, equal to about 1.618. 

The title was given to Page by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who added him to a list of 9 other ‘very attractive humans’. 

English football player Jude Bellingham managed to make it to the top five with a score of 92.22%, followed by Harry Styles with 92.30%. The top three were rounded out with Michael B. Jordan at 93.46% and Chris Hemsworth at 93.53%.

But, the Golden Ratio itself is a rather problematic concept to begin with. With a long history going back to Plato, the ratio was found to be inaccurate when it comes to testing a wide range of facial features. 

There is no evidence which suggests that the Golden Ratio determines facial beauty – or any visual beauty for that matter.

The players and technical staff of Ħamrun Spartans, along with Ħamrun Ħanin, donated a massive amount of food to the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation. 

The foundation feeds upwards of 1,250 people per week in Malta, and all donations or contributions play a massive part in the foundation’s success in helping those in need. 

The donation comprised of everything from pasta, rice, skimmed milk and juices, and will be going to feed various individuals in the community who struggle with day to day needs. 

Foodbank Lifeline Foundation helps individuals and families facing a short-term crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

‘Founded by Chairman Rev. Kim Hurst in the summer of 2015, she decided to launch Foodbank Lifeline Foundation after being approached by a man asking for food after previously being seen rummaging through the trash in search for partially discarded take-aways to eat. Starting as a small venture, the foundation is now feeding thousands of people annually.’ 

Well done to all involved!

This was announced by the Minister for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government Owen Bonnici during a press conference. 

There, he explained how these documents are of massive importance as, due to them, Malta’s history will continue to be preserved and be given the importance it deserves. 

The Minister thanked Dr Granado and his family for their work centred around safe-keeping this collection, thanking as well the workers of the National Archives for their dedication. 

The National Archiver Dr Charles Farrugia explained how these collections are important because they complement the documents which are already to be found in the National Archive. 

Sir Adrian Dingli was born in Valletta in 1817 to a family with ties to administrative justice. His father, Paolo, served as a president of the court and a judge. Some of the documentations of Paolo Dingli are to be found in this new collection. 

The collection also contains various reports about legal materials, documents tied to laws and other important historical artefacts. Documents tied to Sir John Stoddart (1773-1856), the last English judge in Malta, are also among the collection. 

The National Archives also acquired collections from Dr Albert Ganado collections about the Bonita, Emmanuele Mizzi, Paolo Testaferrata Abela, Caruana Gatto and Albert Laferla families.

Jan 27 2023 Share

The Paola Local Council announced on a social media statement that, following a meeting, it was decided to begin a process whereby the garden situated in Triq San Alwiġi will be named after the late politician Silvio Parnis.

Parnis himself was the first mayor of the locality, and the naming of the currently closed down garden will form part of the regeneration process which was planned before Parnis passed away. 

In the following days, a permit is set to be issued by the Planning Authority as the tender process gets finalised. 

Parnis, who was heralded as a spokesperson for the most in need of society, passed away earlier this month. This passing saw many, including politicians from different parties, celebrating his life of activism and service.
