Hacker posts unsolicited photos on Tarxien Council Facebook page

Hacker posts unsolicited photos on Tarxien council Facebook page
Aug 10 2021 Share

The Tarxien council’s Facebook page was taken over by nonsensical gibberish posts and photos of Asian-women. The hacking allegedly took place last week, with the first posts appearing at around 8:45pm on Wednesday 4th August 2021. Councillor Christian Pace confirmed the hacking, stating that the council is working to recover the page as soon as possible. 

The first three posts were mostly gibberish – with a slew of letters and numbers posted on the page. The fourth post however garnered the attention of many, as a photo of an Asian woman wearing a red dress in a car and captioned with a smiley face was uploaded to the page. 

Some took the opportunity to mock the hacking, whereas others pointed out that the local council was aware and was working tirelessly to reclaim the page from the hands of the hacker.

Ligue 1 changes entire rule for Messi

Aug 10 2021 Share

Lionel Messi will reportedly not take close friend Neymar’s number 10 jersey. PSG has instead offered the Argentinian the number 30, paying homage to his early days as he made his professional debut in the number 30 shirt.  In Ligue 1 (French League) there is a rule that states the numbers 1, 16 and 30 can only be used by goalkeepers.

Knowing the financial benefits a player like Messi will bring to the table, Ligue 1 are reported to be willing to change the rule. The League is said to be helping PSG in any way possible as signing the Argentinian will undoubtedly increase revenue and viewership, in a time were it is needed.

 

Many players before Messi have suffered from this rule. New PSG signing Gianluigi Donnarumma had to take the number 50 shirt, as his beloved 99 is unavailable and fellow Italian Mario Balotelli also had to change his shirt number from 45 to 9, in his brief stint in France with Nice and Marseille.

One Culture Group’s first ever treasure hunt around the Maltese islands racked up a whopping €4000 for a good cause. The first ever Malta National Hunt first managed to collect €2000, but the amount was amazingly doubled by Heritage Malta to rack up the €4000 digit.

Going towards Puttinu Cares, the fundraiser, which was executed through an exciting event, will help an organisation which makes the lives of many people, especially children’s, lives easier as they battle cancer. 

The Malta National Hunt team thanked all the participants who inputted into the successful fundraiser.

‘All the cultural progress will be undone’; Jason Micallef on Notte Bianca cancellation

‘All the cultural progress will be undone’; Jason Micallef on Notte Bianca cancellation
Aug 10 2021 Share

In light of the news that Malta’s 2021 Summer Carnival and Notte Bianca being cancelled, Chairman of the Valletta Cultural Agency Jason Micallef addresses the situation with bewildered shock and disappointment. Writing on Facebook, Micallef asks why Notte Bianca, which happens in the first weekend of October in Valletta, has been once again cancelled due to COVID-19 health measures. As of writing this article, it seems that Carnival Malta 2021 will be the one cancelled as amendments to the initial news revealed that further information on Notte Bianca will be released in due time. 

He rhetorically asks whether Malta aims to go blindly into nothingness post-pandemic as arts and culture remain discriminated against by the health authorities. This, says Micallef, is the same economic, social and cultural sector in Valletta which achieved so much in the years prior to the pandemic. This same sector, however, is being abandoned to be destroyed, undoing all the progress. 

Jason Micallef points to the fact that most of Malta’s population is fully vaccinated along with herd immunity. He also asks whether arts and culture are considered less than sports or religious functions as the decisions being made post-COVID do not make any sense. Despite the vaccine rollout, herd immunity, potential for booster doses and certifications, the health authorities still seem to be placing the arts sector in between a rock and a hard place.
