Grech Mintoff first turned heads with such a move when he threw eggs at the Prime Minister’s feet during his Freedom Day speech, making some major waves on social media.

As he exited his post on the Sir Temi Zammit Hall stage, Grech Mintoff told the few students in attendance: “fight for your rights and don’t let anyone fool you” as he left the stage to an applause and a smile on his face.

The election debate was organised by Lovin Malta and Malta Today in collaboration with KSU.


Robert Abela Addresses “Coincidental Timing” of Vitals Inquiry Publication

Robert Abela Addresses "Coincidental" Timing of Vitals Inquiry Publication
May 2 2024 Share

During the launch of the Labour Party’s European Parliament election campaign, Prime Minister Robert Abela addressed the timing of the release of the Vitals magisterial inquiry. The inquiry’s publication coincided with the campaign’s launch, prompting Abela to question whether this was a deliberate move.

Abela pointed out that the inquiry had been requested four years ago by Repubblika, yet it was released now, ahead of the European elections. The Prime Minister argued that the timing raises concerns and suggested that the public consider whether the delay was intentional. He also emphasised that the public is now awaiting the Attorney General’s release of the inquiry’s details and subsequent actions.

Abela’s statements came during a speech where he presented the Labour Party’s nine candidates for the European Parliament elections. He emphasised that those elected under the Labour Party banner would work in the nation’s best interest, highlighting the efforts of Labour Party representatives on a European level. These efforts, Abela argued, span various sectors and aim to enhance Malta’s competency within the European Union.

iPhone Alarm Glitch: Apple Fix on the Way

iPhone Alarm Glitch: Apple Fix on the Way
May 2 2024 Share

Apple is working quickly to fix a glitch that caused some iPhone alarms not to sound, giving users an unexpected lie-in. For many, the phone serves as a vital alarm clock, and some frustrated late risers took to social media to complain.

One TikTok user mentioned setting “like five alarms,” which all failed to go off. Apple has acknowledged the issue, but hasn’t provided details on the cause or immediate solutions. It’s also unclear how many users are affected or if the issue is limited to specific iPhone models.

In the meantime, users can try to avoid oversleeping by double-checking alarm settings and ensuring the phone’s volume is turned up. Some suggest the problem might be linked to Apple’s “attention aware features,” available on iPhone X or later models, and certain iPad Pro devices. These features allow the phone to detect if someone is looking at it, potentially lowering alert volumes, including alarms.

To prevent alarms from being silenced, users can disable attention aware features or rely on a classic alarm clock until Apple resolves the issue. Apple has assured users it is working on a fix, but for now, users might need to look into alternatives to ensure they wake up on time.
