The President took the time to discuss, take photos with and listen to concerns and future prospects of Europe’s youth – with young participants from all the member states engaging in the opportunity.

MaltaDaily also had the opportunity to participate, with our very own Keane Cutajar meeting the President and participating in the various events held in Strasbourg.

‘The future is Europe and that future is yours’, wrote the President.

TAG SOMEONE WHO HAD A LIGHTNING MCQUEEN LUNCH BOX!

We truly are getting old. Disney Pixar’s ‘Cars’ was released 17 years ago on June 9th of 2006 (in the US).

The movie attracted car fanatics to enter a world where their vehicles were the main characters as they spoke, raced and cracked jokes.

The movie grossed over $450 million in the global box office on its own, with its two sequels grossing over $1.4 billion.

Despite having mixed reactions by fans of Pixar overall, the movie went on to sell massive amounts of merchandise. We all knew that one kid with the Lightning McQueen lunchbox!

Do you know of any other movies released in 2006?

AI shows what would happen if we disregarded Malta’s seas

The island of Malta is known for its sea-sides and pristine beaches, and with this comes the ever important respect for the seas surrounding us.

Celebrating World Oceans Day, artificial intelligence creator @malta.ai imagined what would be the case if we were to completely disregard our seas.

Images generated completely by AI show heaps of rubbish and hazardous materials entrenching our beaches, killing off marine life, polluting one of the island’s greatest blessings and giving us no room to enjoy the seas.

‘On this day, let’s take a moment to reflect on our impact on the oceans and pledge to preserve and protect them for future generations. From reducing plastic waste to promoting sustainable fishing practices, every small action we take makes a significant difference’ the creator wrote.

This forms part of a larger, global movement which seeks to protect our seas and the negative impacts we leave upon it. 

Here’s to more awareness!

Sex is as good or better than a sleeping pill suggests study

Sex is as good or better than a sleeping pill suggests study
Jun 10 2023 Share

A new study has suggested that getting your freak on before bed may be as good, if not better, as a sleeping pill if a good night’s knock out is what you need.

In a survey presented at the SLEEP 2023 annual meeting in Indianapolis, 53 adults were questioned about their sleeping habits, covering sleep quality, sex and organisms as well as sleep medication. 

There is currently very little data around sex and sleep quality, but the new study is attempting to corroborate the idea that good sex may lead to good sex.

With fairly young participants – 80% were between 25 and 49 – it was found that 66% of the participants reported using sleep medication at some point in their lives to rest better.

In the new survey, 75% of participants reported better sleep after sex or orgasm, with 64% feeling that a sleeping pill had a similar or worse effect on their sleep. 

Such studies are still in their initial phases, but it is hoped that better understanding such a phenomenon can contribute to offering alternatives to sleeping pills which may have unintended side-effects.
