After the tragic murder of 29-year-old Paulina Dembska, animal rights NGO Real Animal Rights Foundation (RAR Malta) has stated that they will continue looking after the stray cats and also proposed the building of a memorial statue in Sliema’s Independence Gardens.

Dembska would frequently be seen feeding the cats on a regular basis, one of the multiple acts of kindness and love towards the stray cat community that RAR Malta would like to immortalise. The organisation’s main aim is to ‘improve the quality of life of animals in Malta by raising awareness & educating the public’ whilst also providing abandoned animals a home.

In a Facebook post, the foundation appealed for fundraising for the stray cats at Sliema’s Independence Gardens through SMS, BOV Bank Transfer or Paypal whilst also asking for the sponsorship of the memorial statue in her likeness.

Boris Johnson under immense pressure following lockdown party revelation

Boris Johnson under immense pressure following lockdown party revelation
Jan 14 2022 Share

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s political future is currently in major risk after he left the country enraged in light of the recent ‘bring your own booze’ lockdown party revelations.

Johnson’s fellow Conservatives clamped down on the Prime Minister’s actions and reactions after he was forced to apologise for his wrongdoings. Not only was the PM’s apology ill-received, but his actions sent the country into a frenzy after they were forced to stick to strict COVID-19 measures, disallowing them from visiting sick or dying loved ones.

Johnson urged the public to await inquiry findings, with some cabinet members supporting him after his apology while others such as finance minister and potential successor Rishi Sunak remained relatively tepid in their support of Johnson. Scotland Conservatives leader Douglas Ross called for Johnson’s resignation while Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis labelled the PM’s apology as “very, very sincere.” 

The country’s political crisis looks like it will not come into resolve anytime soon as it remains divided over the actions of a number of its key political figures including Johnson himself while many were able to say their goodbyes to dying relatives as a result of following the country’s COVID-19 protocol.

What do you think of Johnson’s apology?

The new regulations will come into affect as of Monday 17th January, with authorities expecting 70 per cent to population to have received the booster by then.

Health Minister Chris Fearne has stated that the new measures will mean that restaurants will not have to socially distance their tables with two metres between them. However, they will still have to close by 1AM.

Of the names given to babies born in 2021, the most popular were Matteo, Luca and Noah for boys along with Emma, Mia and Ella for girls. Identity Malta highlighted that over the past year, 2,123 boys and 2,040 girls were born, with one baby registered as gender-neutral.

Identity Malta Senior Manager Vincent Sladden explained that the majority of registrations took place in the agency’s Mater Dei branch. He also remarked that 2021’s figures reflect the amendments that recently came into place, such as names with Maltese characters such as Ġuże, Ġanni, Eliża & Luċija, which were four of the most popular Maltese names.

Other popular names registered in 2021 were Adam and Jake for boys & Valentina and Emily for girls.

During 2021, Malta also registered 3,699 deaths, of which 1,845 were men and 1,854 were women, with Sladden highlighting that the number may be much higher as not all deaths may be registered as it is not a legal obligation.
