Apr 26 2023 Share

Infrastructure and Transport Minister Aaron Farrugia announced today the launch of Connections for Safer Active Mobility Project, through an investment €35 million spread over 5 years. 

The nationwide plan is designed for ‘promoting and enhancing the use of alternative modes of transport with safer pedestrian and cycling connections.’ 

Among the projects are a Mobility Hub in Blata l-Bajda Interchange as well as the C-Sam ‘Eco Route’ Network Project. 

In a statement, Minister Farrugia explained how the first phase will revolve around the Grand Harbour area to create an adequate and secure infrastructure for those wishing to walk, use bikes or other means which are not private vehicles. 

‘Through this project we aim to change the mentality and promote the use of active mobility whilst educating people on how using a car is not always the best option’ said Farrugia.

Ex-White House doctor demands Biden take cognitive test or drop out of race

Ex-White House doctor demands Biden take cognitive test or drop out of race
Apr 26 2023 Share

After President Joe Biden announced that he would be running for president in 2024, ex-White House doctor Rep. Ronny Jackson demanded that Biden take a cognitive test or drop out of the race altogether. 

The Republican, who was appointed Assistant to the President and Chief Medical Advisor during Donald Trump’s administration, has requested that the president take a test to prove if he is capable to lead the country for another four years if he wins. 

In a letter obtained by The New York Post, Jackson said: “We call on you to either resign immediately and renounce your bid for reelection or submit to a clinically validated cognitive screening assessment and make those results available to the public.”⁠

The letter points to various instances wherein Biden ‘shuffled his feet, tripped when he walked, slurred his words, forgot names, lost his train of thought and appeared momentarily confused’ during public appearances. 

Jackson has been renewing such calls all throughout Biden’s administration, saying that the president should ‘follow the example set by former President Trump’. 

Despite this, the White House gave Biden a nearly clean bill of health earlier this year after his annual physical.

However, their earlier 1-1 draw with Hibernians assured that the youth team had the victory in the bag mathematically for the second consecutive year. 

Well done boys!

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe welcomes 1st child with partner

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe welcomes 1st child with partner
Apr 26 2023 Share

Yes, we are getting very old. 

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has announced the birth of his first child with his partner Erin Darke. 

The birth of their child was confirmed by the actor’s publicist after the Daily Mail published photographs of the pair pushing a pram down New York. 

The actors have not yet revealed the sex or birthday of the child yet, keeping everything very hush hush (or Silencio for all you non-muggles out there).

Radcliffe and Darke have been together for around a decade after reportedly meeting on the set of the film Kill Your Darlings back in 2013. 

Radcliffe was 12 years old (let that sink in – he is 33 years old now) when he was cast as the titular character in the movie adaptation of JK Rowling’s books. 

Last year, he told news portals that he would love to have his children aspire to work behind the scenes in the film industry. 

“A dream would be for them to come on to a film set and be like ‘God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department. I’d love to be something in the crew” he is quoted in having said.
