Oct 25 2023 Share

Netflix has unveiled the inaugural trailer for “Squid Game: The Challenge,” an upcoming competition series spun from its monumental hit, “Squid Game.” Crafted by Hwang Dong-hyuk, the original narrative chronicles a cohort of desperate individuals drawn into a mysterious game for an astronomical cash prize. 

In October 2021, this dystopian Korean drama surpassed even “Bridgerton” to claim the title of Netflix’s most-watched series.

In “Squid Game: The Challenge,” 456 actual contestants will engage in an array of games inspired by the acclaimed Korean production, vying for an unprecedented jackpot of $4.56 million. The trailer offers a glimpse of the participants navigating intricate sets and challenging games. 

A voiceover issues a caution: “This game demands strategy,” while one contestant forewarns, “I’ll be your ally, but I won’t hesitate to betray you.” Another asserts, “Trust is a luxury in this place.”

Netflix’s synopsis describes “Squid Game: The Challenge” as a crucible where contestants’ strategies, alliances, and character will be tested amid a series of games modeled after the original, coupled with unforeseen twists, as competitors are gradually eliminated. The 10-episode series is a collaboration between UK-based production firms Studio Lambert and The Garden. Mark your calendars for the premiere on Netflix on November 22nd.

Nationalist Party Demands Accountability For €400 Million Scandal

Nationalist Party Demands Accountability For €400 Million Scandal
Oct 24 2023 Share

“We will continue to insist every day for the Police Commissioner to do his job and hold those responsible for the lack of action. We will exert pressure for justice to be served, for political accountability to be investigated, and to reclaim the €400 million.

This was the message of the Leader of the Nationalist Party, Bernard Grech, to the media at the end of the meeting he had with Police Commissioner Angelo Gafà, where, together with Deputy Adrian Delia, they presented an official request for him to carry out his duty and investigate all those involved in the largest fraud – that of the hospitals – which cost €400 million, where the Court confirmed that Government officials as well as Vitals and Steward were implicated through a plea bargain to avoid trial.

Accompanied by Deputy Karol Aquilina, the Leader of the Nationalist Party insists that the Police Commissioner should meet with them after not being present at the Police Headquarters. After insistence, Angelo Gafà arrived and met with the three Deputies of the Nationalist Party.

On his part, Adrian Delia said that Angelo Gafà has the duty to investigate those who caused harm to the victims, where in this case, the victim is the Maltese and Gozitan population as a whole. He stressed that the Police Commissioner must start the investigation from himself and give this investigation absolute priority.

With journalists, the Leader of the Nationalist Party explained that a long and detailed discussion was held with the Police Commissioner, where Angelo Gafà confirmed that he is not conducting any separate investigation from the Magisterial Inquiry on the three hospital frauds.

On the other hand, he apologized to the present Deputies who, after a denunciation presented last May, did not feel the need to send any form of feedback to the Leader of the Nationalist Party and to Adrian Delia.

The Leader of the Nationalist Party said that pressure will continue to be exerted, as it is clear that there are those who have no interest in achieving justice despite the decision of the Court of Appeal.

Therefore, and in view of this institutional failure, the people are invited to join the Nationalist Party in the National Protest to continue exerting public pressure to recover the €400 million and hold political responsibilities accountable next Sunday.”

Now, it’s your chance to nominate someone for this distinguished honour.

The National Volunteer Award was introduced for the first time in 2011 with a noble purpose – to offer broad recognition to the invaluable service provided by volunteers and Voluntary Organisations within the Maltese community. It aimed to create awareness of the exemplary values demonstrated by these volunteers and organisations, with a clear mission to inspire young individuals and the wider society. The award was designed to acknowledge the significant contributions made across diverse sectors, highlighting the dedication and selflessness that drive positive change.

There are several award categories within the National Volunteer Award, ensuring that volunteers and organisations from various age groups and sectors are duly recognized for their outstanding contributions. Here are the award categories:

National Volunteer Award: This award recognizes individual volunteers who have made remarkable contributions to any field, including social, humanitarian, health, ecology, culture, education, and sports. To be eligible, the volunteer’s work must have had a positive impact on a specific field and should serve as an inspiration to others.

Youth Volunteer Award: The Youth Volunteer Award celebrates volunteers aged between 16 and 30 years. These young individuals share the same aims as the National Volunteer Award, and their primary goal is to promote volunteerism among their peers.

Volunteer Organisation Award: This award is granted to Voluntary Organisations that have shown exceptional dedication within their respective sectors. These organisations are recognised for their innovative approaches and services within the community, as well as their recruitment and support of volunteers.

Corporate Volunteering Award: This category acknowledges companies and organisations from the private sector that have made a significant impact on the Voluntary Sector. These organisations are recognised for their tangible support, both in direct contributions and by facilitating their employees’ participation in volunteering.

Victor Calvagna Children Volunteer Award: This unique award is dedicated to young volunteers between the ages of 10 and 15. Like the Youth Volunteer Award, these children strive to promote volunteering among their peers and inspire a spirit of selflessness and compassion from an early age.

Nominating someone for the National Volunteer Award is a straightforward process. The Malta Council for the Voluntary Sector is currently accepting nominations, and the deadline for submissions is Friday, 27th October at noon. To nominate an individual or organization, visit this link and follow the provided instructions. Your nomination could be the catalyst for recognizing the tireless efforts of those who have made a positive impact on the Maltese community.

By nominating someone for this award, you have the opportunity to celebrate the unsung heroes who work tirelessly to make Malta a better place for everyone. Don’t miss the chance to shine a light on their incredible contributions.
