Idris Elba in talks to star in the next James Bond film, reports say

Idris Elba in talks to star in the next James Bond film, reports say
Nov 22 2021 Share

Reports have emerged that actor, rapper, DJ, producer and dearly beloved British icon Idris Elba may be in talks to star in the next James Bond film, just not as 007 himself.

Following the reveal that ‘No Time to Die’ would be Daniel Craig’s final big-screen appearance as the suave special agent James Bond, rumours ran rampant of the next potential bond, with Elba being a frontrunner for the role based on speculation alone. The 49-year-old recently shut down such speculation, with British news outlet The Sun reporting that he is currently engaging in discussions to take on a role in the upcoming Bond Film. While he will not occupy the role of the titular character, he commands enough pull and respect to make him a desirable addition to the cast.

While discussions are in early stages, with all the hype surrounding the Bond franchise and Elba touted as potentially the next Bond villain, we can’t wait to see what’s next for the blockbuster franchise.

Village feast enthusiasts claim ‘double standards’ on COVID-19 restrictions after President’s Fun Run

Nov 22 2021 Share

Enthusiasts of local village feast have sounded off following the President’s Fun Run held on Sunday, claiming double standards in the face of COVID-19 restrictions.

The annual fundraiser was held in an altered manner to comply with Malta’s current COVID-19 restrictions, with a number of different marathons held in separate towns across Malta as opposed to the traditional mass event which normally culminates with a mass gathering in Valletta. Despite these attempts at compliance with COVID-19 regulations, the festa enthusiasts have argued the unfairness of village feasts remaining where they are, despite restrictions being lifted in the past months.

Qormi Parish Priest Mario Mangion took to Facebook to share his opinion on the matter, concluding by stating that while understanding that the situation is not normal and he hopes for the best, he expects that every one is treated the same.

“What is the difference between 100 people walking to collect money for charity and 100 people walking behind a statue of baby Jesus during Christmas time?” the parish priest stated, to a wave of supporting messages and statements of agreement.

Do you agree with the feast enthusiasts?

Over €7,000 raised for kids with disabilities by Maltese boxer

Over €7,000 raised for kids with disabilities by Maltese boxer
Nov 22 2021 Share

A boxing tournament held last week by Steve Martin raised up to €7,000 for charity. Posting to Facebook, Martin thanked everyone who was present at the Super Charity Boxing Nights – whether they were the fighters themselves or coaches, fans or sponsors. 

He explained how, for him, this night was far more epic than winning a world title. ‘Me and my opponent auctioned the title that we fought for and managed to get a very generous donation of €7,000 from a guy with a heart of gold.’ All the money will be going to Embrace Diversity Organisation, an international organisation with a presence in Malta which helps kids with disabilities.

Spotify removes shuffle from default thanks to Adele

Spotify removes shuffle from default thanks to Adele
Nov 22 2021 Share

Music streaming giant Spotify removed the shuffle option from all of Adele’s albums on the platform, including ’30’. For the singer, after a six year hiatus, it was crucial that fans listen to the songs on her newly released album in order. She therefore asked the music platform for its help. 

Posting to Twitter, Adele explained how her only request for the new album’s launch was that Spotify remove the shuffle from default option. ‘This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry’ she said.The singer continued to explain that ‘we don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. 

Spotify responded with a Tweet, simply stating ‘Anything for you’. Some thought that the singer had taken away the shuffle option forever, but this isn’t the case at all. Gizmodo reviewed other artist’s albums on the platform (Ed Sheeran, BTS, etc) and found that people can still activate the shuffle option in the Spotify player while playing an individual song from an album.
