    Blockchain to end Middle Ages - Dennis Avorin

    Malta made an important step on Friday when Parliamentary Secretary Silvio Schembri presented the new legislative package that will pioneer the island into a blockchain hub. The business opportunities surrounding this technology is envisaged to...

    Valletta’s glorious guardians - Kenneth Cauchi

    Over the past few weeks, social media has been inundated with photographs of the newly-restored Tritons Fountain which graces the entrance to Valletta, the European Capital of Culture for 2018. Such a prominent landmark which after years of...

  • Doom and gloom

    I suspect Paul Brincau’s increasingly hysterical letters painting everything EU black and prophesying doom for all the nations belonging to it will eventually make amusing reading sometime in the future, once the United Kingdom has completed the...

  • Tale of two cities

    I thank Anna Grech (February 10) for pointing out my error. I must have misunderstood the RaiUno newscaster. She is right and I wish to explain that I did not want to mislead anyone. I just thought we were in tandem with Palermo. Sorry for my gaffe.

  • Apple’s springs

    What was called “apple’s eye” in the news item ‘Man, 75, returns to bay where he met “sweetheart”’ (February 14) is an incorrect translation of Għajn Tuffieħa. In this case, like many other places, such as Għajn Żnuber, Wied il-Għajn, Għajn...

    A group of people, the vast majority of whom idolised slain blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia and well known for their PN sympathies, led by Nationalist Party exponents Michael Briguglio, PN councillor Manwel Delia of Arriva fame, and Andrew Borg...

  • Gaming intelligence collaboration

    The Malta Gaming Authority is concerned that the lack of collaboration between anti-Mafia Italian authorities, the Malta Police Force and regulators might be adversely affecting the fight against irregular gaming activities, which could be a cover...

  • White-collar militants - Savior Rizzo

    A collective agreement is signed by two parties representing employers and employees following a process of bargaining, very often a lengthened one, on the substantive and procedural norms that regulate the employment relationship at the...

  • What’s up at Mount Carmel? - Michael Briguglio

    Clint Camilleri’s statement about the ‘Mount Carmel’ van paraded during the Nadur carnival was so wrong. Not only because it was in bad taste. And not only because he is the Parliamentary Secretary for Agriculture and Animal Rights, but even more...

    Paved with bad intentions? - Arthur Muscat

    There seems to be a perception that members of the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) are convinced that harassment, victimisation, discrimination and unequal treatment are rampant in places of work. I lately heard a remark...

  • Lost in translation

    Marie Paule Wagner’s letter ‘Incompetent translators’ (February 15) has cast doubts on the academic profile of the University of Malta’s Department of Translation, Terminology and Interpreting Studies, which I represent as director. I would...

  • PSC jurisdiction

    I refer to the item titled ‘Commission silent over Jimmy Magro “retirement”’ (February 10). The Public Service Commission would like to point out it has no jurisdiction over Malta Enterprise. Considering that at the time the findings of the...

    Lessons to learn

    I refer to the recent tragic death of a Romanian man, killed by a tree that fell and sliced through his car in Mdina Road, Mrieħel. The decayed tree collapsed as a result of the strong winds. This incident is a reminder that vigilance by the...

  • More than a memorial

    Memorials are more than just embellishments of public spaces and quaint historical reminders. They can be potent symbols, often serving as lightning rods for people’s passions. One of the enduring visuals of the second Gulf War in 2003 was the...

  • Malta – a leading role in the world

    I remember the State funeral of Guido de Marco well. Valletta was flooded with foreign dignitaries, particularly from Arab States. From across the world, people had come to pay their respects. Our serving men looked brilliant in their uniforms.

  • Suggesting Holocaust Remembrance

    The thoughtful opinion piece by Mgr Charles Vella (‘Why not mark Holocaust Remembrance Day in Malta?’ The Sunday Times of Malta, February 11) marks a high point in this journal. Representing all that is laudable in Christianity, this good pastor...

  • Death wish

    The tragic death of a Maltese teenager who committed suicide after escaping from Mount Carmel Hospital made a deep impression on me. I kept thinking about it. Then I recalled several encounters I’ve had with people who had a death wish. A few...

  • Trituni, not Tritoni

    Trituni, not Tritoni

    I would like to point out that the word ‘Tritoni’ is the Italian name for Tritons. The correct Maltese word is ‘Trituni’. Both the Maltese dictionary by Prof. Joseph Aquilina and the ‘Miklem Malti’ by Erin Serracino Inglott use the word ‘Trituni’...

  • They think they are untouchable

    I was pleased to read in last week’s The Sunday Times of Malta that the Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams was stepping down. He should have resigned years ago. Also in the same edition of the newspaper, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is quoted as...
