  • Plant-based diet

    On a local TV channel it was stated that a plant-based diet can prevent – and even reverse – cancer and other diseases while animal-based, processed and refined food increase the risk of many diseases. So, apart from the fact that animals would no...

  • A video is worth 10,000 words

    A picture, it is said, is worth a thousand words. Imagine then the worth in words of a whole video segment! And more important, imagine the power of such a video to mobilise people into action. Until last week few people had seen the tract of...

    An open day to appreciate the art of elegance

    I was 20 I think when I first saw the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris. And I remember thinking as I stood in square: “!?!” It looked as if the building had woken up hurriedly in the morning and put on its dress inside out. I could not make up my...

  • Let’s hear it for the Eurovision Trash Contest...

    “So are you going to watch it?” “What... the Eurovision nonsense?” “The song contest... yes.” “No.” “Oh, but I thought you liked it.” “Really. How long have we been married my sweet?” “Eleven years... nearly, why?” “Because for all those 11 years...

  • Editorial: Selling Malta against all ODZ

    Editorial: Selling Malta against all ODZ

    The government’s decision to push the so-called American University of Malta, earmarked for Marsascala, is symptomatic of much that is wrong with Joseph Muscat’s administration. For the past two years, Malta has been run by a government with a...

  • Environment and investment. Can the two live happily ever after?

    Environment and investment. Can the two live happily ever after?

    The controversial proposal to build a university on Outside Development Zone in Marsascala has propelled the issue of sustainable development to the top of the national agenda. The government claims the project will help regenerate the south but...

  • Communicating the family

    A tree without roots is a dead tree and a person without the family is a person without life. No one can live without the family. Everybody needs a family because the family is the right environment where to love and be loved, to live, to grow, to...

  • Addressing the challenges of ageing

    In recent decades, the role of older people changed as a result of falling fertility, lengthening life expectancy and the growing proportion of older people in society. The traditional image of older people killing time by frequenting church...

  • Three stooges and clowns

    Three stooges and clowns

    I remember, as a young slip of a lad, not being overly impressed by The Three Stooges. It was probably a cultural thing, don’t you know, my being of an Anglo-Saxon bent when it comes to humour, rather like our dearly beloved Premier Joseph...

  • Deficiency in medical care

    In his statement on St Vincent de Paul GPs (May 9), Charles Messina states that “the different and much better conditions compared to 10 resident doctors could only cause ‘bad blood and demotivation’”. While I totally agree with what he had to...

  • We don’t need your 'education'

    We don’t need your 'education'

    We are being treated to a news snippet in a rather zealous tone, orchestrated by our very own Prime Minister. Expecting us to dance ecstatically in gratitude, we have been told that a so-called American University of Malta is planning to set up...

  • CHOGM role on migration

    The sterling and ongoing work by Moas, Doctors Without Borders and others to save migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean should not mask the abject failure of major international institutions to deal with this long-standing humanitarian...

  • Mellieħa bay development

    How shocking to read the article (May 7) regarding the proposed development of a new hotel on the existing Costa del Sol site, within Mellieħa Bay. It is totally disgusting. The building will spoil the views of the beach area and the access ...

  • George Cross and the flag (1)

    George Cross and the flag (1)

    I have met Charles Xuereb several times. He is a thoroughly decent man and a leading researcher into the brief, but doomed, French period in Malta. His letter of May 12, titled ‘George Cross as symbol on the flag’, shows he is obsessed with the...

  • George Cross and the flag (2)

    I admire the misplaced resilience of Charles Xuereb in combating a lost argument long ago buried. The annals of history, Maltese, British and French, record the truth. The award of the George Cross had no sinister implication of either religion or...

  • Archbishop Charles Scicluna’s green agenda

    It is very clear that Archbishop Charles Scicluna, who celebrated his birthday today, has a green agenda. He spoke clearly during the ‘hunting in spring’ referendum. He was not against hunting as such, but against hunting birds on their way to...
