Monument To Jean De Valette Pops Up In St George’s Square

Monument To Jean De Valette Pops Up In St George’s Square
Jun 23 2024 Share

Photos sent to this newsroom show the iconic statue of Jean De Valette, which was formerly located in Piazza Jean De Valette in St George’s Square.

In 2012, a square named Pjazza Jean de La Valette was inaugurated in Valletta, featuring a statue of the Grandmaster. The 2.5-meter-high statue, cast in bronze by local sculptor Joseph Chetcuti, depicts La Valette in armor, holding Valletta’s plan in one hand and a sword in the other.

However, photos show the sculpture of the historic figure in St George’s Square, with a bouquet of flowers placed in his hand.

Jean Parisot de Valette was a French nobleman and the 49th Grand Master of the Order of Malta, serving from August 21, 1557, until his death in 1568. As a Knight Hospitaller in the Langue de Provence, he distinguished himself in battles against the Turks at Rhodes.

As Grand Master, de Valette emerged as the Order’s hero and most illustrious leader, notably commanding the resistance against the Ottomans during the Great Siege of Malta in 1565. This forms part of the Mediterrane Film Festival festivities taking place at St George’s Square.

Microplastics Found In Human Penises For 1st Time

Microplastics Found In Human Penises For 1st Time
Jun 23 2024 Share

Scientists have discovered microplastics in human penile tissue for the first time, raising concerns about their proliferation and potential health impacts.

The study, published in IJIR: Your Sexual Medicine Journal, found seven types of microplastics in four out of five samples from men with erectile dysfunction (ED) undergoing penile implant surgery.

These microplastics, ranging from less than 5 millimeters to as small as 1 micrometer, are fragments of larger plastics that degrade chemically or physically.

Lead author Ranjith Ramasamy, a reproductive urology expert, based his research on previous studies finding microplastics in the human heart. Given the penis’s vascular nature, Ramasamy wasn’t surprised by the findings. The samples, analyzed using chemical imaging, revealed polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and polypropylene (PP) as the most prevalent microplastics.

The study underscores the need for further research to determine if microplastics contribute to conditions like ED and to understand their broader health implications.

Toxicologist Matthew J. Campen highlighted the ubiquity of plastics in the body and their potential to disrupt normal bodily functions, including erection and sperm production.

Prior research by Campen found high levels of microplastics in human testicles compared to animal testes.

Experts recommend reducing plastic exposure by using stainless steel and glass containers, avoiding microwaving food or beverages in plastic, and not putting plastic in dishwashers to prevent chemical leaching.
