Daily Big Macs by record holder Donald Gorske rack up to over 32,000
Aug 9 2021 Share

As Guiness World Records holder Donald Gorske devours at least 2 Big Macs a day, he has managed to munch his way to his 32,340th McDonald’s burger. For a guy who devours so many Big Macs, he sure seems to be insanely fit, having received the world record for the most Big Mac burgers eaten in a lifetime in 2016. Back then, his feat racked up 28,788 Big Macs, but he boosted it up to the 32,000 mark in a new YouTube video this year.

According to Donald himself, he simply cannot get enough of the Big Macs. He stated that he loves hamburgers like no other food and is closing in on 50 years of eating them next year. With two Big Macs a day, that totals around 14 of the iconic sandwich a week. He began his fast food journey on May 17th, 1972 after having just gotten his first car. Back then, he states, he would eat up to 9 Big Macs a day!

Gorske keeps track of his destiny to devour as many of the burgers as possible by keeping every container he ever bought. Marking when he gets them on a daily calendar, he has every container and receipt organised in boxes and pouches by year. To keep his health, Donald states he skips eating the fries and walks six miles per day. Fans from across the world have even decided to send him McDonald’s collectible items knowing the burger fanatic will appreciate them on his very hungry journey!

Marathon runner caught cheating in Olympics

Aug 9 2021 Share

French long distance runner Morhad Amdouni, was caught cheating in the official Olympic marathon final. The runner was caught knocking off all the bottles of water, until the last available one, which he took. This action was met with a lot of controversy online, with many people including Piers Morgan calling him a cheater and stating that he finished the marathon unfairly.

The runner finished in 17th place out of the 106 runners that started. Only 76 runners actually finished the marathon. The world record-holder Eliud Kipchoge successfully retained his gold medal, finishing the race in 2:08:38. The Kenyan was a class above everyone else as he finished nearly two minutes before Abdi Nageeye who came in 2nd.

As of right now the IOC haven’t said anything about the matter. Since the Olympics are now over there most probably won’t be any repercussions on Morhad Amdouni.

Iconic Mosta Rotunda to get state of the art glow up

Iconic Mosta Rotunda to get state of the art glow up
Aug 9 2021 Share

The iconic Mosta Rotunda will be getting a state of the art glow up through an external lighting system through an €850,000 investment. The investment is set to come from the National Social and Development Fund, further enhancing the architectonic elements of the Basilica. 

By using energy far more efficiently and sustainably, the Rotunda will attempt to create the least amount of pollution possible as it shines as a piece of Maltese national heritage. 

Franck Franjou is set to be the architect behind the project, with a CV of work boasting more than 300 similar projects around the world. Apart from theatres, train stations and museums, Franjou has designed the lighting of the Parliament Building and the City Gate. 

Parliamentary Secretary for Communities Alex Muscat commented, stated that this project will embellish the aesthetics of the Rotunda while also increasing the value of the landmark for locals and tourists. The Roman Catholic Parish Church was built between 1833 and the 1860s on the site of an earlier Renaissance church. With the third largest unsupported dome in the world, the Rotunda survived destruction during World War II when a German aerial bomb fell into it during mass but did not explode. This event alone continued to increase the Rotunda’s national and international fame.

Solar panels for Malta Public Transport vehicles to reduce carbon emissions
Aug 9 2021 Share

Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects Ian Borg announced on social media that a €40 million investment into Malta’s public transport has been secured. This investment will see the fleet of public transport vehicles go electric as Malta acquired a strong fund packet from European Funds as it works to recuperate from the pandemic’s negative effects. 

The project will see the installation of solar panels on the roof of several vehicles, with testing by Zarb Coaches Malta and Tallinja currently underway. The vehicles will, through this investment, reduce the level of CO2 emissions and cut back on yearly diesel expenses. The investment will also mean that, locally, diesel consumption will decrease by 8 to 10% annually.
