Charity swim around Gozo to raise funds for Victory Kitchen

Sep 26 2021 Share

On Monday, local charity organisations Victory Kitchen and Happy Initiative will be conducting their Annual Charity Swim fundraiser and will see Rafel Sammut and Andrew Arrigo attempt to swim 37 kilometres in under 14 hours.

The Victory Kitchen was set up at the beginning of the pandemic with the goal to feed the families which were affected hardest by the pandemic, feeding up to 18,954 families with 96,424 meals so far. The pair will attempt a continuous unassisted non-stop swim around Gozo and have been training under the wing of record-breaking Wave of Change founder Neil Agius.

Sammut said that they “strongly believe that no one should go to bed hungry, and we use this as our battle cry for this year’s swim to try and raise enough funds to donate 120,000 meals for the next 12 months.”

Donations can be made via BOV IBAN: MT87VALL22013000000040010942082 or Revolut/BOV Mobile to 99441950.

The ‘men’ in ‘X-Men’ may be removed to make brand more inclusive

Sep 25 2021 Share

X-Men may potentially be one of the most iconic and hard-hitting outfits Marvel has ever had, however Marvel’s president of Physical, Post Production, VFX and Animation Victoria Alonso has had a thing or two to say about the long-standing Marvel centrepiece.

Alonso stated that it is funny how people call them the X-Men when there are a lot of female superheroes in the group, and her newfound position may give her the power to change that.

Marvel has already hinted at a potential change with the release of The New Mutants last year, which was the 13th and final instalment of the X-Men series and since then, the entertainment giant has announced ‘The Mutants’, a X-Men reboot which may finally officially welcome the beloved group of misfits to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Do you think the X-Men’s named should be changed?

Valletta Deputy Mayor Ray Azzopardi took to Facebook on Saturday morning to share his concern with the current state of Valletta and the effect that is being left by the ever-increasing number of commercial establishments in the city.

Azzopardi shared a video of an ambulance struggling to drive along Valletta’s narrow roads, which path was being impeded by the seating of a restaurant. The deputy mayor went on to rhetorically Transport Malta, the Planning Authority and enforcement whether sales should come before peoples lives.

“It’s a shame that you will wake up from the slumber when a life is lost due to this situation”, Azzopardi stated, concerned at the suffocating infrastructure in Valletta at the moment. In his concluding statements, he appealed to the authorities to “stop being cretins and start enforcing seriously before it’s too late.”
