The actor died ten years ago in a car accident, on the 30th of November 2013. 

‘A decade… ten long years… and yet it feels like yesterday when we were singing happy birthday to you for the big 40’ wrote Diesel. 

‘The world isn’t the same brother… as a species, one might say we are struggling. But I think of you, and I smile and know everything is going to be alright.’

‘For me this picture represents the moment I knew we would be brothers for eternity. January 2010, the night before you and I went to Haiti… the passion and joy you had to simply help people. You said first responders shouldn’t have to wait for anyone… and that you wanted to dedicate your life to that. First responders… that was your true self, and you were sharing it with me, your brother.’ 

‘I miss you… I love you, and I will continue to honour the beautiful soul you are.’

Paul’s daughter Meadow too posted a touching tribute to her late father, writing:

Happy birthday to my guardian angel. Thank you for your love, guidance, friendship, sunshine and for raising me to see all of the beauty in the world. You are the most kind, humble, generous and caring soul I know. You taught me at a young age to always treat everyone with respect, to do good and to take care of our planet. I love you and miss you every day.

Roberta Metsola's State Of The Union Debate Opening Speech

Opening the State of the Union debate, the President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola said that the European Union must keep reforming.

Welcoming President of the European Commission Ursula von Der Leyen, Metsola said that over the last years the EU has managed to overcome a financial crisis and a pandemic. 

It also got through Brexit, stood up and firm against Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, disengaged from ‘toxic Russian energy’ and is addressing the climate emergency. 

‘The world is changing and Europe must adapt and change with it too. We must keep striving to make our Europe a place of equality of opportunity, of access, of prosperity – where everyone can reach their potential. We must keep reforming.’ 

Metsola said that there are still many in the Union who are struggling and urged the EU to keep the ‘people’s concerns at the centre of all our actions.’

What Was Announced At Apple’s Big Event?

What Was Announced At Apple's Big Event?

Apple introduced its latest iPhone lineup with enhancements including improved cameras, faster processors, a new charging system, and a price increase for the top-tier model, the iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

The launch event aimed to counter a recent sales decline, contributing to a 10% drop in Apple’s stock price since mid-July, pushing its market value below $3 trillion.

While the technology leap in the iPhone 15 models is not substantial, Apple added features to the Pro Max, warranting a $100 price increase from the previous version to $1,200. Prices for the other models remain steady, with the basic iPhone 15 at $800, iPhone 15 Plus at $900, and iPhone 15 Pro at $1,000.

Despite potential pressure on profit margins, maintaining prices is seen as a practical move given current inflation and rising interest rates. The price hike for the iPhone 15 Pro Max could stimulate sales, particularly for Apple’s premium models, which are anticipated to account for about 75% of total sales in the coming year.

One significant change is the shift to USB-C charging, replacing the Lightning port, aligning with an impending European regulatory mandate. While some users may find this adjustment inconvenient, USB-C is already prevalent in various devices, offering faster charging and data transfer speeds.

Additionally, the basic iPhone 15 models feature a “Dynamic Island” on the display for app notifications, and they incorporate a swifter chip used in the previous year’s Pro models. The premium iPhone 15s will operate on an even more advanced processor. All models will be available in stores starting September 22, with pre-orders beginning shortly.
