RyanAir offering 300,000 reduced flights until midnight

If you’re looking for a quick May getaway to somewhere like Italy or Jordan, RyanAir are offering insanely reduced flights to 300,000 travellers.

However, this offer is only up for grabs until one minute until midnight, and suffice to say the prices are insanely affordable. 

A one-way flight to Catania, Italy is set to just €7.99. But that is literally nothing compared to a one-way flight to Nis, Serbia at just €4.99. The most ‘expensive’ flight is to Budapest, Hungary at just €16.99. And there are more of those as well!

Travellers have a wide range of choices – from Turin to Naples, from Zagreb, Croatia to Athens, Greece. The price reduction applies to around 1,000 routes which RyanAir have for the month of May.

Malta’s ‘not us, but them’ mentality slammed by EU prosecutor

Malta’s ‘not us, but them’ mentality slammed by EU prosecutor

EU chief prosecutor Laura Codruta Kovesi said that she was not able to identify the institution in Malta which was responsible for detecting financial crimes, slamming the fact that no one could provide answers. 

The chief said that Malta was only supporting her European Public Prosecutor’s Office with words but not with facts. 

She said that when she visited Malta and had meetings with the national authorities, it became very difficult for her after two days to identify the institution responsible to detect crimes because everyone directed her to someone else. 

‘It’s not me, it’s them’ was the response she was given time and time again, saying that this needs immediate addressing. During her October visit, Kovesi had meetings with the National Audit Office, the Commissioner of Police, the Attorney General and the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit. 

She warned that if members states do not do their job, the EPPO cannot do it for them. This isn’t the first critique delivered at Malta by Kovesi. In October, she said that not a single actionable report of fraud related to EU funds came from Malta.

This raised concerns of lack of reporting from the country, meaning that possible abuse is going unchecked. Malta joined the EPPO in 2018 following the spotlight shed on the country after Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination.

In a statement released on the official Manchester United website, John Murtogh United’s football director had this to say:

“During the past four years at Ajax, Erik has proved himself to be one of the most exciting and successful coaches in Europe, renowned for his team’s attractive, attacking football and commitment to youth.”

“In our conversations with Erik leading up to this appointment, we were deeply impressed with his long-term vision for returning Manchester United to the level we want to be competing at, and his drive and determination to achieve that. “

“We wish Erik the best of luck as he focuses on achieving a successful end to the season at Ajax and look forward to welcoming him to Manchester United this summer.”

The new manager Erik Ten Hag also had an opportunity to say a few words, stating:

“It is a great honour to be appointed manager of Manchester United and I am hugely excited by the challenge ahead. I know the history of this great club and the passion of the fans, and I am absolutely determined to develop a team capable of delivering the success they deserve.”

“It will be difficult to leave Ajax after these incredible years, and I can assure our fans of my complete commitment and focus on bringing this season to a successful conclusion before I move to Manchester United.”

The 52-year old manager has signed a 3 year deal with an option to extend the deal for another year. Manchester United will reportedly be paying Ajax close to £2 million to buy the esteemed manager out of his current contract with the Dutch champions. He will be hoping to end his Ajax chapter on a good note by winning another Eredivisie.

Baby born with two penises has larger one surgically removed

Baby born with two penises has larger one surgically removed

A Brazilian boy who was born with two penises ended up having his bigger appendage removed. 

Doctors operated on the boy after they discovered his two penises were conjoined at the base in a one-in-5 million birth occurrence. Medics were originally going to remove the smaller one, but new information changed their minds.

The boy’s mother revealed her son could only urinate from the smaller penis. Examinations showed that the left and bigger penis couldn’t function correctly.

This was because the boy’s urethra was too narrow for urine to pass through. The surgery was completed without any complications, utterly detaching the bigger genitalia. 

The study concerning the boy and his rare birth defect, called diphallia, was published in the Journal of Paediatric Urology. The boy was two years old at the time of surgery, but the report did not say why it it took so long for anything to be done. 

Marcela Leal da Cruz, who helped write the study, said the defect was spotted only 100 times in history. The first condition was reported back in 1609. Last year, a case of triphalllia (yes, three) was recorded, making medical history.
