Local dancer hits out at Maltese dancers not chosen for Eurovision

Local dancer and choreographer Luke Brincat took to social media to give his 5c about how Maltese dancers were, yet again, not chosen to perform on the international Eurovision stage. 

Brincat, who is the creator and director of DanceLab, started his post by saying that despite the song choice  not being the best choice for Emma, he had a lot more to say about the dancers. ‘Don’t get me started about those dancers.’

‘I’ve been wanting to post since the release of the first rehearsal footage…I’ve bit my tongue for too long.’

Luke highlighted how year after year, foreign dancers are chosen over local professional dancers to ‘avoid flights and lodging.’ 

‘No Maltese dancer or choreographer could have possibly done the couple of movements the foreign dancers did’ he said sarcastically. ‘Pretty sure that fellow local dancers who sweat their asses off every single day… too some day make it in this industry… agree 100%’. 

What do you make of this?

12-year-old student breaks teacher’s glasses during fight

Education authorities are investigating an incident which took place last week, which saw an assault on a student and three teachers at Naxxar Middle School.

Sources claim that a troublesome 12-year-old assaulted a fellow student during break time. The assailant then directed his violent behaviour towards three teachers who tried to break up the abuse.

One teacher had her spectacles broken during the assault while the other two teachers were slightly injured. An education ministry spokesperson said that the incident took place on Thursday of last week. 

In line with standard procedure, he said, the school leadership team took immediate action. The police were not involved, but college administration, child protection services and the college’s psychosocial team are attending to the case. 

This is the same school wherein a girl was caught on video being bullied by other students outside the school. More information as the story develops.

Weddings make massive comeback after two pandemic years

Weddings make massive comeback after two pandemic years

Weddings have made a massive comeback after being continuously put off for two years. Caterers and other businesses involved are working around the clock to keep up with demand as couples seek to finally tie the knot. The rare Friday celebration has become the norm. 

Chamber for Small and Medium Enterprises (GRTU) head Abigail Mamo said that spring 2022 was always planed to be busy ‘as we hoped to be back to normality after two years of pandemic’. 

And that expectation was surpassed since weddings had to be redistributed. The government had announced several restrictions for mass events including weddings. 

After the initial outright ban was lifted, guests had to be seated and lists limited to a small count of people. Despite some deciding to hold a small wedding for loved ones, other waited it out and are set to celebrate the wedding in traditional Maltese fashion, with upwards of 500 guests.

2,400 counterfeit Nike shoes to be destroyed by Customs

2,400 counterfeit Nike shoes to be destroyed by Customs

Customs has been ordered by the First Chamber of the Civil Court to destroy 2,400 counterfeit pairs of Nike shoes which arrived in Malta last year. 

Customs officers had found a consignment of 100 boxes with the a total of 2,400 pairs of shoes in a container. Suspicions that the shoes were non-genuine were proven correct. 

The shoes were unloaded in the Port of Marsaxlokk from the ship APL Austria, which entered Malta on 17th May last year. 

The American company Nike, along with Swoosh Design, are trademarks used by the company on various products ranging from shoes to caps, and are registered EU Trade Marks. 

Their entry into Malta infringed the property right of the company that made the application, insofar as they were not genuine. Customs were thus ordered to destroy the goods without any compensation within 90 days of the date of the judgement.
