Cloudy week ahead for Malta as yellow wind warning issued

It seems as though the brief sunny and warm weather all over the Maltese islands will be short lived as some very cloudy skies are being forecasted for the end of this week, getting even worse as next week progresses. 

According to the Malta International Airport Weather Forecast, the weekend is set to be mainly cloudy, pushing into mid-next week with the same weather.

However, it will be Thursday the 2nd of March which will bring the isolated rain showers as temperatures drop to around 16 degrees Celsius.

But that may not be the thing we should be concerned most about as the meteorological offices have issue a yellow warning for today due to strong winds set to hit from the south and southeast. 

Temperatures are set to feel between 17 and 19 degrees Celsius, with the highest temperature actually being 19 degrees Celsius.

According to Facebook page ‘It-Temp Madwarna’, the weather for today is also set to be quite cloudy and hazy, with a 40% chance of rainfall. The force of the surrounding seas is expected to be moderate but may become strong due to the wind.

Prime Minister distances himself from Vitals-Steward deal

Prime Minister distances himself from Vitals-Steward deal

Prime Minister Robert Abela has denied his involvement in the privatisation deal with Vitals Global Healthcare and Steward Healthcare with the government. 

When questioned by journalists, Abela said outright that he had no involvement in the deal, which was struck back in 2015.

The government had granted a concession to Vitals Global Healthcare so it could run St Luke’s Hospital, Karin Grech Hospital and the Gozo General Hospital. 

The concession had been negotiated by the then health minister Konrad Mizzi. The deal with the VGH consortium caused many to question the deal, with Vitals selling the concession to Steward Healthcare together with €55 million in debts accused by VGH to the price of €1. 

Abela himself was the legal advisor to Joseph Muscat, the prime minister at the time of the transfer. Abela also stated that he and a number of ministers met to analyse the decision and stated that they plan on filing a court application so the time period for appeal is reduced. 

“If that request is met by the courts, we will also be requesting that appeal is heard with urgency,” Abela said. He also assured people that services at the hospitals would not be affected by the decision.

Man breaks world record for visiting Disneyland up to 3000 times

This is one of those weirder Guinness World Records that you have to see to believe! A 50-year-old man from California has just set a world record for the most consecutive visits to Disneyland at almost 3,000 trips.

TMZ revealed how Jeff Reitz visited Disneyland’s Anaheim, California theme park 2,995 times in a row, with his streak beginning in 2012. 

The streak went on to span eight years, three months and 13 days – and it all started as a joke between friends!

The road to the record allegedly began when Disneyland announced they were giving an Extra Disney Day when they announced the Leap Day 24 hour even in 2012. 

‘We decided to use Disneyland as a positive as we were out of work and had annual passes that had been gifted, so it was a source of free entertainment’ Reitz told Guinness. 

The streak ended in March 2020 after COVID-19 shut down the theme park due to restrictions. By then, Reitz was on his 2,995th visit. He shared how attempting to break a record requires time management and even financial awareness to balance out normal day to day activities and getting the title.
