V18 moves into new premises

The Valletta 2018 Foundation has moved into new headquarters to accommodate its growing organising team before the city assumes its role as European Capital of Culture in January. Culture minister Owen Bonnici, together with parliamentary secretary for V18 Deo Debattista and Foundation chairman Jason Micallef, yesterday toured the new office, adjoining the Chamber of Commerce in Republic Street, which he said would allow the different V18 departments to better work together. The foundation also maintains separate premises in Old Bakery Street housing the organising team for ‘flagship events’ including the opening ceremony and Pageant of the Seas, led by artistic director Mario Philip Azzopardi. “Our investment in the foundation is part of a strategic investment exercise to achieve three pillars in the cultural sector: bringing culture to the people, increasing employment within the cultural sector and having this sector actively contributing to our GDP,” Dr Bonnici said. Dr Debattista stressed that the work done for V18 would not stop at the end of the event, with the government committed to continuing and strengthening the Capital of Culture legacy. “We will continue to...

Social housing must be matched with social programmes - campaigners

Social housing should not just be about putting a roof over people’s heads but also equipping them with basic skills to manage their lives better, according to experts who have the pulse of the poor in different towns and villages. “While it seems that the housing issue is being taken seriously, we need to introduce the concept of social architecture, a cheesy catchy phrase that has a lot of meaning,” said Andrè Bonello, secretary of the Anti-Poverty Forum and manager of Caritas’ community outreach programme. “This is an innovative way of supporting people with social issues,” he explained. Caritas is one of the 13 NGOs that make up the forum. Mr Bonello’s role with the Church charity includes travelling to different villages across the island and taking account of residents’ means and needs. He then drafts a report about each locality’s challenges, which helps Caritas make specific recommendations to alleviate poverty in those areas. The forum recently sounded its concern about housing issues and rising rents.

Armed group stopping migrant boats leaving Libya

An armed group is stopping migrant boats from setting off across the Mediterranean from a city west of Tripoli that has been a springboard for people smugglers, causing a sudden drop in departures over the past month, sources in the area said. The revelation throws new light on the sharp reduction in migrant arrivals from Italy, which took over from the Aegean route as the main focus of European concerns in the crisis. Arrivals in Italy from North Africa, the main route for migration to Europe this year, dropped by more than 50% in July from a year earlier, and August arrivals so far are down even further. July and August are peak months for migrant boats because of favourable sea conditions. Sources in Sabratha, 70 km west of the capital, said the sudden drop had been caused by a new force in the seaside city, which is preventing migrants from leaving, often by locking them up. The group in Sabratha «works on the ground, the beach, to prevent the migrants leaving on boats towards Italy,» said a civil society organiser from the city, speaking on condition of anonymity. The group is made up of several hundred «civilians, policemen, army figures,» he said. It is conducting a "very...

Government publicity brochure reveals rental rates

Rental prices for residential dwellings have gone up significantly over the past four years, spurred by a booming economy. Unwittingly, it was government’s own publicity material as part of the bid to attract the European Medicines Agency to Malta that laid bare the average rental prices in different regions of the island. According to the glossy booklet distributed to the media recently, as expected, rental prices are the highest in the central area, which comprises Sliema, St Julian’s, Gżira and Valletta. This is a highly sought after area by gaming company foreign employees who want to live close to their place of work and the entertainment hotspot of Paceville. Renting a three-bedroomed flat in these localities is a third more expensive than a similar apartment in the northern area comprising Mellieħa and St Paul’s Bay. Rents in the north are on average 10% higher than those in the Three Cities and Marsascala in the south. Although the advertising booklet does not indicate the source of the information, the classification used is similar to that adopted by the Central Bank of Malta in its annual report for 2016. In that report, the CBM noted that over a 10-year span, rents...

Acupuncture makes its point for cats and dogs in China

Pet owners in China are turning to acupuncture to help soothe the aches and pains of their beloved cats and dogs. «China is famous for acupuncture. I took the cat here immediately to have a try,» said Wang Xijuan, 74, holding the paw of her feline friend during a session at a Shanghai clinic. After four treatments, Wang said her cat can «walk now, jump and even fight with other cats». Traditional practitioners believe acupuncture, which involves inserting long, fine needles at specific places, known as meridians, of the body, can stimulate blood circulation to promote healing and relieve some aches and pains. On its website, the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society said acupuncture has been used in veterinary practice in China «for thousands of years to treat many ailments». Jin Rishan, a specialist at the Shanghai TCM Neurology and Acupuncture Animal Health Center, said they have treated more than 2,000 cats and dogs since the clinic opened four years ago. A single session costs 260 yuan ($39) and last for about 45 minutes. Jin said about 80% of their patients have shown some improvement after treatment. "Making a paralysed and dependent dog stand up is our ultimate...
