Hamrun Train Station Restored Back To Former Glory
Mar 3 2024 Share

The iconic Hamrun Train Station has officially been restored to its former glory through an investment announced by mayor Christian Sammut. 

The mayor explained that among the works that took place, conservation works and restoration for safety and the aesthetic of the building were key. The station was even given the original colour scheme it possessed when operational. 

Ceilings, power, flooring, cleansing and much more went into restoring and reopening the site, all with the intent of restoring the locality of Hamrun bit by bit. 

This project was made possible in association with the Malta Railway Foundation, Hamrun Girl Guides and Hamrun Scouts.

Maltese comedian Daniel Xuereb is currently undergoing a court trial for having called River of Love pastor Gordon Manche an asshole, posting a TikTok video with an update. 

Dan is asked about how he feels about the situation, saying that he is a bit worried that he may be found guilty as he awaits sentencing on the 16th of May.

However, in the meantime, he plans on trying to getting charged with another crime as he plans to say much worse ‘shit’ about Gordon in his upcoming Good Friday show. 

On the 29th of March, Dan is holding the ‘Good Friday, Bad Jokes’ event – a dark comedy night which is set to be even more controversial. 

Back in June of last year, the comedian said police served him with court summons for two charges: insulting Manche and misusing electronic equipment to share those threats in relation to a video of his comedy sketch back in March 2023. 

Xuereb is the second comedian to be criminally charged by police after making fun of Manche, with Bis-Serjeta’s Matthew Bonanno being the former.

Obesity Becomes Bigger Health Threat Than Hunger For 1st Time

Obesity Becomes Bigger Health Threat Than Hunger For 1st Time
Mar 3 2024 Share

Obesity, now surpassing hunger, affects one billion globally. Approximately 159 million children and 879 million adults are classified as obese, according to a study published in The Lancet. 

While America is often associated with obesity, China and India have higher numbers. The US ranks 10th for male and 36th for female obesity globally. 

Obesity rates quadrupled among children and doubled among adults globally from 1990 to 2022. Obesity is now the most prevalent form of malnutrition in many nations. 

In the US, adult obesity rose from 21.2% to 43.8% for women and 16.9% to 41.6% for men from 1990 to 2022. Obesity rates among US girls almost doubled, while among boys, it increased significantly. 

Men in the US had the third-highest increase globally in obesity rates. Urgent actions are needed to address obesity, given its association with serious health risks like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
