The President of North Macedonia and an 11-year-old schoolgirl are making global headlines after exhibiting one of the most wholesome acts of kindness of 2022.

President Stevo Pendarovski was pictured holding 11-year-old Embla Ademi’s hand as he walked her to her school in Gostivar on Monday after she had faced acts of bullying. A spokesperson for the President noted that Embla was bullied for having Down Syndrome – a genetic condition which causes certain learning problems, health issues and distinctive facial characteristics.

Not only did the President hold Embla’s hand whilst walking her to school, but he sat down with her parents to discuss the challenges they face, going on to discuss potential solutions in the regard of children’s rights and their endangerment.

In Malta, a total 360 reports of bullying were made to the police in 2021, with the Police Force receiving 18 total reports of bullying concerning minors between January 2021 and January 2022. Minister for Home Affairs Byron Camilleri had revealed that the average age of victims was 14, with St. Paul’s Bay registering the highest amount of reports.

The match was dominated by the European champions, Chelsea. They had 71% of the possession throughout the match and managed to challenge the goal 22 times whilst Palmerias only 11 times. The first goal of the game came from a clean Romelu Lukaku header in the 54th minute. The Brazilian side managed to equalize only 10 minutes later from a penalty because of a Thiago Silva handball in the box. The match ended with both teams searching for a winner meaning that extra time was needed.

The next 30 minutes was very similar to the previous 90. Both teams had chances but weren’t clinical enough in front of the net. Chelsea’s winner came in the 115th minute when young star Kai Havertz stepped up and scored a late and dramatic penalty to win the tournament for the Blues. The final ended with  even more drama as in the 126th minute Palmerias player Luan Garcia recieved a straight red card for tackling Kai Havertz who was the last man in front of the Palmerias keeper.

Hundreds recall memories of infamous Havana staircase in club’s recent post

Hundreds recall memories of infamous Havana staircase in club’s recent post
Feb 13 2022 Share

A recent social media post by beloved Paceville nightclub has gone viral for all the right reasons after showing a snapshot of its infamous staircase. The club in question, Havana Club Malta, has a decade-spanning reputation for its banging hip-hop soundtrack, its bar-dangling monkey accessory and of course… the ever-iconic staircase.

Hundreds of partygoers, former and current, took to the comment section of Havana’s post, tagging their friends and recalling the multiple nights of drunken revelry without a single care in the world. One comment in particular likened the staircase to a water park’s slide while others sarcastically requested payment for the countless time they involuntarily cleaned the staircase themselves.

Back in January, Malta Daily had been informed that Havana was scheduled for a massive revamp and will remain closed until April. Sources have confirmed that the club will rock a brand new look when it reopens in a few months.

Do you have any staircase memories?

The emergence of the viral trend can be traced as far back as 2019, with Instagram influencers Kylie and Kendall Jenner posting a now-deleted photo in swimwear during their snowboarding vacation in Aspen, Colorado. Thousands of internet personalities followed the trend soon after. It is also tradition in places like Lapland to strip down into swimwear amid the snowy environment, with various celebrities making the headlines for the bold move.
