Jan 27 2023 Share

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola has just been awarded a ‘Woman of the Year’ Award during the fourth edition of the Women in a Legal World Conference in Spain. 

Metsola was presented the award by Spain’s Economy Minister Nadia Calvino, with the award handed to her for the work carried out at the European Parliament. 

Her work in dealing with the Ukraine war, her fight against corruption and the defence of EU values were all highlighted. 

Metsola wrote on Twitter saying that she is ‘grateful to all those women who came before and opened the door. Now, our challenge is to make it easier for those who come next. Let’s keep the momentum.’


Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page deemed the world’s sexiest man

Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page has just been deemed, according to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, the most handsome man in the world. 

The 34-year-old Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is a British actor known for his breakout role in the Netflix series. He played Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings in Season 1. 

The Golden Ratio Test reportedly test rates a person’s facial beauty based on how close their facial proportions are to the ratio. It was called the ‘Divine Proportion; by the Pythagoreans and it is a mathematical value called phi, equal to about 1.618. 

The title was given to Page by facial cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, who added him to a list of 9 other ‘very attractive humans’. 

English football player Jude Bellingham managed to make it to the top five with a score of 92.22%, followed by Harry Styles with 92.30%. The top three were rounded out with Michael B. Jordan at 93.46% and Chris Hemsworth at 93.53%.

But, the Golden Ratio itself is a rather problematic concept to begin with. With a long history going back to Plato, the ratio was found to be inaccurate when it comes to testing a wide range of facial features. 

There is no evidence which suggests that the Golden Ratio determines facial beauty – or any visual beauty for that matter.

The players and technical staff of Ħamrun Spartans, along with Ħamrun Ħanin, donated a massive amount of food to the Foodbank Lifeline Foundation. 

The foundation feeds upwards of 1,250 people per week in Malta, and all donations or contributions play a massive part in the foundation’s success in helping those in need. 

The donation comprised of everything from pasta, rice, skimmed milk and juices, and will be going to feed various individuals in the community who struggle with day to day needs. 

Foodbank Lifeline Foundation helps individuals and families facing a short-term crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

‘Founded by Chairman Rev. Kim Hurst in the summer of 2015, she decided to launch Foodbank Lifeline Foundation after being approached by a man asking for food after previously being seen rummaging through the trash in search for partially discarded take-aways to eat. Starting as a small venture, the foundation is now feeding thousands of people annually.’ 

Well done to all involved!
