The Malta Football Association announced on Facebook that as of Tuesday, a small number of fans will be welcomed back to local stadia after 15 months. Fans will be making their return for the first UECL tie of the season. The association, whilst welcoming the fans back, appealed for everyone to cooperate in following the rules as live football makes its long awaited return. 

As for health precautions, only persons in possession of a match ticket and a vaccination certificate are allowed to enter stadia. An identification document will also be requested prior to entry at the stadium with persons attending requested to provide their contact details for contact-tracing purposes. No ticket sales at the door of the matches will take place. Face-masks are to be worn at all times and social distancing adhered to.

13 elephants travelling to Africa from UK park in first re-wilding project

13 elephants travelling to Africa from UK park in first re-wilding project
Jul 6 2021 Share

The world’s first and largest re-wilding project will see a herd of elephants bred in captivity travelling to Africa. Should the project prove successful, it will be the first time an entire elephant herd has been released into its natural habitat. The herd includes 13 elephants, of which 3 are calves, and they will be travelling a massive 7000km from the UK to Kenya. 

Organised by British wildlife conversation charity The Aspinall Foundation, the project does not have a lack of challenges. Since these elephants were bred in captivity, conversationists claim there are a lot of unknowns as to how the animals will adapt to the new environment and the various threats that come with it. The animals all weigh a whopping 25 tonnes together, making the travel immensely difficult. However, if successful, the project will show that endangered species can be successfully returned to natural environments.

Jul 6 2021 Share

The ‘life-hack’ debunking Khaby Lame has shot up to TikTok’s second most followed user globally. Overtaking Addison Rae, Lame went viral for entertaining videos without speaking a single word. The Italian TikToker has racked a whopping 84.2 million followers (as of writing this article), etching closer to the current first place TikToker Charli D’Amelio.

Dancer D’Amelio was the first user to reach 100 million followers, but Lame is on his way to overthrowing her. Lame’s videos embody everything we think when we see overly exaggerated life hacks. He counters ridiculous and unnecessary approaches to basic actions by showing the more simple and overall effective day-to-day approaches. His silent hand gestures have taken one of the most used social media apps by storm, and he’s still going.

Thousands injected with salt water in vaccine scam in India

Thousands injected with salt water in vaccine scam in India
Jul 6 2021 Share

A wide-ranging scam selling fake COVID-19 vaccines in India saw thousands of people falling prey to the fake jab administration. With doctors and medical workers among those arrested for their involvement, at least 12 fake vaccination drives were held in or near the financial hub Mumbai. Senior official of the Mumbai police department Vishal Thakur stated that they were using saline water and injecting it. 

Around 2,500 people were jabbed with fake shots, with organisers charging their victims fees for the vaccine. A total of $28,000 was earned in total. So far, 14 people have been arrested on suspicion of cheating, attempts at culpable homicide, criminal conspiracy and several other charges. The fake vaccinations took place between late May and early June, during which India was being ravaged by a second wave of COVID-19.
