He was recently admitted to hospital due to health complications, with tributes pouring in for the young boy in support. And now, as he returns to continue his love for sport, he has come up with an event for a good cause. 

‘Paw Walk’ will aim to raise awareness on abandoned animals. Starting from the main entrance of Mater Dei, it will end at the Pet Cabin. Treats for dogs will be distributed at the end of the walk, with dog owners encouraged to join. 

Walk will happen on Sunday 18th December 1030am, with a donation of €5.

The song is part of their latest E.P ‘Supereroj’ – ‘Bogħod mill-Briju’ follows a similar style of music of the previous songs of the E.P. and can be considered as an up-tempo crowd-singalong. It signifies the desire of wanting to break away from daily hectic life, finding peace and quiet.

SterjoTipi are currently working on other original material that is due to be released in the coming months.

‘Bogħod mill-Briju’ can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/w-mdsh5nbd8

World Cup Japan goal confirmed with new camera angle

World Cup Japan goal confirmed with new camera angle
Dec 2 2022 Share

A new camera angle emerged which appears to show why Japan’s winning goal against Spain, however controversial, was actually legitimate at the World Cup. 

Despite initial TV camera angles making it seem as if the ball was clearly over the line and out of play, the Kaoru Mitoma cross for Ao Tanaka was accepted, seeing Germany out of the competition.

It actually has something to do with an optical illusion, with the law stating that the ball remains in play if the curvature of the ball is only partly on the line. 

The VAR decided this was the case after consulting various replays, which include goal line cameras. The entirety of the ball and its curvature has to be past the entirety of the line for it to be out. 

However, viewers and pundits were still enraged as FIFA’s host broadcaster did not provide any definite camera angles that showed it was still in play. 

Due to something called parallax view, viewers were given an inaccurate picture. Different angles of perception can make the same object appear very differently, with a picture from above the goal-line appearing to show a tiny curvature of the ball hanging over the edge.
