Filipino netizens divided on Alphonse Areola’s World Cup win

Alphonse Areola is officially the first Filipino to win a World Cup championship.

Seychelles revises outdated mental health law

Mentally ill patients in Seychelles will now have a say on how they are treated and can appeal against decisions they do not approve in a court being set up for them, the health minister has said. Jean-Paul Adam said this week that a revised Mental Health Act is set to replace an older version criticised for being outdated and oppressive. “Mentally ill patients will now have more rights under the new law and be more actively involved in their treatment,” Adam told reporters on Wednesday. Experts and consultants from the Commonwealth had argued the current law does not conform to the United Nations Convention for the Protection of Rights of People with Disabilities, which Seychelles has ratified. “It is assumed that the rights of mentally disabled people are guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic of Seychelles, but they are not,” an expert in a panel that reviewed the old law said. ...

Poor visibility in Air Malta’s operations

The public that owns Air Malta deserves to be kept updated on how the national airline is performing, especially since the government is now no longer allowed to provide state aid to the company. But its chairman, Charles Mangion, thinks otherwise. Asked by journalists what the cost of recent operational disruptions was to the company, he acknowledged that the issues had, naturally, come at a cost. However, he hastened to add that he “was not comfortable” divulging details. He also sounded complacent, if not also insensitive, about the inconvenience caused to Air Malta customers when he said: “We are not the only (airline) that has delays.” Dr Mangion may need reminding that, in September 2013, Air Malta had issued a press statement to inform the public on the disruption caused by pilot sickness and how this was affecting its operations. It had also said that, as a result of the extraordinary high level of sickness reported by pilots, costs incurred by the national air carrier in just one day were likely to be more than €500,000. In August 2016, in a lawsuit between Air Malta and the pilots’ union, the company claimed that strike action could lead to the collapse of the airline...

Europe’s existential challenges

The summits of multinational organisations, like the EU Council or the G7, are usually stage-managed with final communiqué traditionally agreed in principle by participants well in advance. Donald Trump made sure this no longer remained the case when, after agreeing in principle on the wording of the final communiqué of the last G7 meeting held in Canada, he felt offended by comments made by Justin Trudeau. So Trump tweeted that he was withdrawing his consent to the final post-conference communiqué. But for real melodrama, hype, theatrics and lack of substance one has to analyse the last EU Council summit held in Brussels in late June. The media had been buzzing for weeks about the importance of this summit. The main item on the agenda, of course, was the problem of migration into the EU that has given rise to populist moments in various countries. The new Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte knew that nothing but a show of strength at the summit on the need for changes to the Dublin Treaty would satisfy his sponsors the Five Star Movement and the Lega who now lead a strong coalition. Conte made it clear that Italy could no longer tolerate a situation where it was responsible...

Drum and bass masterclass

A free drum and bass masterclass is being held tomorrow by percussionist Philippe Soirat and double bassist Philippe Aerts, in the run-up to the Malta Jazz Festival. Soirat was born in Menton in 1961. After self-taught beginnings, he studied at the Monaco Conservatory and the Nice Contemporary Music Centre. He settled in Paris in 1986 and moved in the informal jazz school made up of meetings and experiments among musicians. Concerts came thick and fast and he accompanied most musicians on the French and international jazz scene, including Barney Wilen, Ricky Ford, Lee Konitz, Yannick Rieu, Lionel and Stéphane Belmondo, Lou Donaldson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Ray Brown, Laurent DeWilde and Mark Turner. Belgian Aerts started playing double bass at the age of 14, playing with Dixieland bands. Very soon he found himself playing with the best known Belgian jazz musicians at that time: Diederik Wissels, Jan De Haas, Félix Simtaine and Michel Herr Philip Catherine. The percussion and bass masterclass is being held tomorrow at 5pm at Offbeat Music Bar, Valletta. Classes are free, however, the number of participants is limited. Priority will be given to practising musicians. To sign up, send...

EU says China could open its economy if it wishes

China could open its economy if it wishes, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday in Beijing, as Beijing comes under growing pressure over its industrial policies amid an escalating trade war with Washington. Playing host to Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang stressed the need to uphold free trade and multilateralism as the United States and China become increasingly mired in a trade dispute, with no sign of negotiations on the horizon. US President Donald Trump has warned he may ultimately impose tariffs on more than $500 billion worth of Chinese goods - nearly the total amount of US imports from China last year – to combat what the US says are Beijing's trade abuses. China has sworn to retaliate at each step. Long accused of protectionist tactics that make it a difficult place for foreign firms to operate, China is trying to reverse that narrative amid the escalating trade war by approving huge investments, such as a $10 billion petrochemicals project by Germany's BASF. Juncker, speaking at a joint news briefing with Li and Tusk at Beijing's Great Hall of the People, said that move showed "if China wishes to...

What happened on... July 16

10 years ago - The Times Wednesday, July 16, 2008 Transport strike: two mediation attempts fail Two attempts at mediation in the public transport dispute failed to break the stalemate yesterday as the public today faces the consequences of what many have defined as anarchy on the roads for the third day running. Both sides stood their ground, with Transport Minister Austin Gatt pledging to resign if the government backtracked on its decision to liberalise the hearse sector. Several organisations and political parties have rallied behind the government’s stand and the decision to stand firm against the operators’ bullying tactics. The police began to make their first arrests in a bid to restore some calm on the streets and four minibus drivers were arraigned last night accused of attacking a van shuttling tourists. They were remanded in custody. The day started badly after the government’s emergency bus service was stopped at 7.30am, just 90 minutes after it started, because of incidents in which a van’s windscreen was smashed and people intimidated. A double-decker tourist bus was ambushed by striking operators who intimidated sightseers and forced them to get off the vehicle,...
