In a resounding triumph for Malta’s nightlife scene, Gianpula Main Room has clinched the 36th spot in the prestigious global rankings of nightclubs by Nightlife International.

This accomplishment solidifies the club’s status as a formidable player on the international clubbing stage. Additionally, Gianpula Main Room is the only Maltese establishment to secure a coveted spot on the list, an impressive feat given the fierce competition from renowned venues worldwide.

Surpassing international powerhouses such as XS Las Vegas (No. 42), Berghain Berlin (No. 47), and O Beach Ibiza (No. 63), Gianpula Main Room has etched its name among the elite. The top three positions were claimed by HÏ Ibiza, OMNIA Las Vegas, and USHUAÏA Beach Hotel, marking Gianpula’s inclusion in the upper echelons of global nightlife destinations.

This recognition not only celebrates the local respect and international intrigue of Gianpula Main Room but also underscores Malta’s growing influence in the worldwide clubbing circuit.

“We’re honoured to be voted as one of the top clubs both locally and internationally. Big thanks to our amazing team, global clubbers who voted for us, and the amazing people who visit us weekly! We will continue working hard and elevating what we’ve built here at Gianpula Village,” Gianpula Main Room Managing Director Matthew De Giorgio told Malta Daily.

Authentic Has Been Chosen As The Word Of 2023

Authentic Has Been Chosen As The Word Of 2023
Nov 29 2023 Share

Merriam-Webster, America’s oldest dictionary, has designated “authentic” as the word of the year for 2023, reflecting a substantial surge in online searches driven by discussions on artificial intelligence, celebrity culture, identity, and social media. 

The word’s popularity stems from its multifaceted meanings, encompassing both “not false or imitation” and “true to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.” Despite its desirability, the dictionary publisher acknowledges the inherent difficulty in precisely defining and debating the concept of authenticity.

The increasing ambiguity between the “real” and the “fake,” amplified by the AI boom influencing text, images, and videos, further fuelled interest in the term. “Deepfake,” denoting digitally altered videos and photos through AI, emerged as a runner-up for the top word, reflecting the evolving landscape of technology. 

Additionally, influential figures like Elon Musk advocated for authenticity on social media, contributing to the word’s prominence.

Other notable words from 2023 include “rizz,” an internet slang abbreviation for charisma or romantic appeal, and “indict,” gaining traction following former President Donald Trump’s indictment in four legal cases. 

The impact of British influence is evident, with “coronation” surging in searches after the crowning of Charles III as the new king in May. In 2022, the word of the year was “gaslighting,” describing manipulative behaviour causing individuals to question their realities.

Parliament Delayed Due To Traffic For Second Time This Month

Parliament Delayed Due To Traffic For Second Time This Month
Nov 29 2023 Share

On Wednesday, Members of Parliament (MPs) experienced the frustrations of daily commuters as parliamentary proceedings faced their second delay in a month, courtesy of traffic issues. 

Typically scheduled for 4 pm, parliamentary plenary sessions this month included a 9 am morning session for post-budget discussions. However, the nation’s persistent traffic challenges disrupted proceedings on two occasions.

The first incident occurred on November 14 when both Inclusion Minister Julia Farrugia Portelli and shadow minister Graziella Galea were ensnared in traffic. 

This Wednesday, Justice Minister Jonathan Attard’s tardy arrival for a debate on his portfolio led deputy speaker David Agius to temporarily suspend the session, resuming 20 minutes later.

Simultaneously, the ‘Maltese Roads Traffic Updates’ Facebook page reported road closures from Mellieħa to Selmun and Burmarrad road due to ongoing works. Infrastructure Malta CEO Ivan Falzon attributed the closures to asphalt plant failures impacting night works, compounded by inclement weather.
