Formula 1 fans rejoice as Drive to Survive Season 4 has been confirmed and is coming to Netflix in 2022. The streaming giant and motorsport’s most famous series first began collaborating during the 2018 season to produce this renowned series. It became a staple of not just television, but also of the competition’s attempts to appeal to a wider audience in general. 

Despite Netflix not releasing any viewing figures for its shows, the continuation of this fan favourite seems to suggest that it has been a popular addition for both parties involved.

The first three seasons featured highlights of the stand-off between Red Bull and Renault over exploding engines, Mercedes’ implosion in 2019 with Lewis Hamilton left sat outside his team’s pit box and even the 2020 reactions to Romain Grosjean’s crash at Bahrain. Season 4 will undoubtedly bring more of these iconic moments to fan’s home screens as they await release.

Why is the phrase ‘Nah he tweakin’ going viral on Instagram?

Why is the phrase ‘Nah he tweakin’ going viral on Instagram?
Aug 26 2021 Share

Instagram has suddenly been taken over by a phrase; ‘nah he tweakin’, and many people are outright confused. Users are jumping on a viral trend and it all has to do with musical artist Lil Nas X and skateboarder Tony Hawk. But why? It all began when the rapper released his Nike Air Max 97, or Satan Shoes, which contained a drop of human blood, a pentagram and a Biblical verse. The shoes sold out within a minute of going on sale but they received a barrage of heavy criticism due to their ‘satanic’ aesthetic. 

Fast forward to this week when skateboarder Tony Hawk announced he was releasing ‘Liquid Death Skateboards’ infused with his own blood. After an Instagram account titled ‘Rap’ shared a post about this skateboard release, the rapper commented ‘nah he tweakin’. The phrase, which is sometimes used in hip hop culture, usually refers to someone who’s either high on stimulants or crazy/irrational. 

It seems as though Lil Nas X is drawing a comparison to the reception he garnered with his Satan Shoes and these new skateboards. In fact, posting to Twitter, the rapper posted: ‘Now that Tony Hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? And maybe you were made for some other reason?’

Overseas travel by Maltese cut by 50% in first half of 2021
Aug 26 2021 Share

The National Statistics Office (NSO) revealed that the first six months of 2021 experienced a 50.1% drop in Maltese travelling abroad compared to 2020. This translates to around 57,684 of Maltese going abroad overseas. With Malta having restricted travel in March 2020 as the pandemic hit, tourism reopening in July did not see a massive resurgence in travel all across Europe. 

Malta officially restarted tourism season in June 2021, but with tourists having to follow strict procedures which vary from country to country, this may have contributed to tourists thinking twice before travelling abroad. For the Maltese context, all travellers must present proof of vaccination to avoid quarantine. According to the same NSO figures, those going abroad for holidays spent more days away with these going up by 23.5%. This totalled around 831,118 nights, with total outlay by residents student reducing to €52.6 million (35.3% drop).
