BBC commentators had to apologize for Kyrgios’s language saying “Apologies for the language, it’s live sport, it’s tense”. The incident in question was when he asked chair umpire Renaud Lichtenstein for a first serve after two double faults saying: “It’s a f*****g joke.” Throughout the match he was seen arguing with fans and even with his girlfriend and family for their apparent lack of support.

He was fined $4,000 for an audible obscenity in front of royalty, with Prince George and Princess Kate in attendance with their son Prince George. Kyrgios had to pay two more fines throughout this year’s Wimbledon however he has not only made the money back but also received much more after winning £1,050,000 as runner-up.

The project has been ongoing for nearly 30 years now and, suffice to say, it has not been cheap. It has reportedly cost NASA around $10 billion for the project to come to fruition and for the telescope to actually work as intended. 

The highly awaited photos will showcase the Universe in a way never seen before, will feature certain colours that no human has ever seen as well as more depth and resolution in an image of the cosmos than ever before.

The telescope includes the largest ever mirror sent to space. It spans 21 feet across and is meant to gather infra-red light. It is that infra-red light, which has never been seen by the human eye, that NASA personnel have been studying ever since they took the photos. This has allowed them to peek further into the Universe.

The full collection of photos will be released in a live stream on NASA’s youtube channel and website at around 16:30 on the 12th of July.

Carisma bring back Maltese heritage in their new bag design
Jul 12 2022 Share

Carisma Collections has found an ingenious way of incorporating Maltese heritage in their designs with their latest release: Lulu’s Rattan Bag. 

The brand utilised the traditional skill of cane work to craft the latest bag, designed to be the perfect bag for the summer as one ventures for a day by the sea. 

‘With its pale rattan body and a white flap with a gold door-knocker symbol, this bag has a top handle and a long strap so that you can wear it in whatever way you like’. 

But more than that, the bag revives aspects of Maltese heritage which have been at risk of dying out as the world rushes onward. Through such designs, Maltese culture is preserved and revitalised for the 21st century fashion world. 

Carisma was founded by 3 siblings and have been working on creating designs which keep parts of Maltese culture alive, such as the gorgeous Widnet il-Baħar earrings or necklaces.
