Facebook has lately announced a series of major steps it would take to combat fake news and the global spread of misinformation that it says could influence elections, but the more we learn about just who it is Facebook is partnering with in this endeavor, the clearer it becomes that these initiatives are not at all designed to foster independent thought and discourse, but to ultimately ensure that public online discourse doesn't stray too far from official state narratives.

Genetic editing kills population of malaria mosquitoes

PARIS, France -- Scientists said Monday they had succeeded for the first time in wiping out an entire population of malaria-carrying mosquitos in the lab using a gene editing tool to program their extinction. So-called gene drive technology works by forcing evolution's hand, ensuring that an engineered trait is passed down to a higher proportion of offspring -- across many generations -- than would have occurred naturally. In experiments with the species Anopheles gambiae, scientists at Imperial College London tweaked a gene known as doublesex so that more females in each generation could no longer bite or reproduce. After only eight generations, there were no females left a...Keep on reading: Genetic editing kills population of malaria mosquitoes

Judge restores protections for grizzly bears, blocking hunts

BILLINGS, Montana --- A U.S. judge ordered federal protections restored for grizzly bears in the Northern Rocky Mountains on Monday, a move that blocks the first grizzly hunts planned in the Lower 48 states in almost three decades. Wyoming and Idaho had been on the cusp of allowing hunters to kill up to 23 bears this fall. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen had twice delayed the hunts, and the latest order blocking them was due to expire later this week. The hunts would have been the first in U.S. outside Alaska since 1991. Christensen wrote in his ruling that the case was «not about the ethics of hunting.» Rather, he said, it was about whether federal officials adequately co...Keep on reading: Judge restores protections for grizzly bears, blocking hunts

Hundreds of residents protest at plans for Luqa warehouses

More than 400 Luqa residents are opposing plans to build warehouses and a solar array instead of a large farm outside the development zone at the edge of Wied il-Kbir. The farm in Ħal Farruġ, across the road from the St Vincent de Paul home for the elderly and a small residential community, includes some 13,000 square metres of virgin land – nearly the size of two football pitches – and is within the limits of a valley system protected under various planning policies. An application submitted to the Planning Authority, which closes to public consultation today, seeks to demolish the farm and excavate the site to build a complex of warehouses and a car park, with a solar farm covering the roof of the parking area and warehouses. Although the application says the built-up area will remain the same as the existing buildings, published plans show that most of the rest of the site will be taken up by the parking area, internal roads and landscaping. Moreover, residents who objected to the plans claim the farm is still active, and not “disused” as stated in the application, a distinction with policy implications. Hundreds of residents, many from the adjacent streets, have submitted...

Croatia proposes raising retirement age to 67, unions object

Croatia on Monday proposed raising the retirement age to 67 from 2031, and trade unions said they would protest. The current retirement age is 65 years for men and 62 for women, although women's retirement age is due to rise gradually over the next 12 years to 65. Under the new proposal, which the labour and pensions ministry put forward for a public debate in the next three weeks, men and women would have to retire at 67 from 2031. The ministry also proposed that pensions would be 4 percent lower for each year of an earlier retirement. Labour Minister Marko Pavic said the goal was to make the pension system sustainable and pensions higher in the future. The main trade unions said they were likely to organise protests in the coming weeks, saying the measures would hit older employees who are often under pressure to retire earlier for health reasons or because employers wanted to get rid of older staff. Each year the budget needs to finance about 17 billion kuna ($2.69 billion) from taxes to cover a gap in the pay-as-you-go public pension scheme which costs about 39 billion kuna annually.

Muscat underlines commitment to a multilateral approach to world's challenges

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat addressed the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit in New York on Monday, focusing mainly on migration.  He said the conference was paying tribute not only to a person but rather to the values he embodied: reconciliation over revenge; cooperation over conflict; hope over hate. «It is in this spirit of cooperation that we must grapple with the emerging challenges that are already adding to the existing economic pressures and political tensions. Whether climate change or migration, effecting change will depend on our capacity to mobilise our resources towards the underlying causes,» Dr Muscat said.  «By shifting our efforts towards sustainable development, conflict resolution and peace-building, we can try to prevent the wars and alleviate poverty that dispossess millions of people. In the near future, shifts in extreme weather risk becoming an additional factor that compels people to flee their homes and abandon their communities. »Malta has always maintained that we are greater than the sum of our individual interests. Initiatives like the Paris Accord continue to provide scope for global optimism. This strong sign of unity should also be visible in our...

Education of deaf children ‘still poor’

  Dorianne Callus was born profoundly deaf. Her parents realised this when she was eight months old. But she is bilingual and can communicate by speaking or by signing. Her speech is not always clear; she mispronounces some words since she cannot hear them. And she can only speech-read from speakers’ lips and body language. The lives of an estimated 200 deaf people in Malta have improved substantially as a result of technology and the introduction of a number of services over the years, mainly sign language interpreting, which started in 2000. Another 200 deaf people, however, have not learnt sign language. Callus, who is an active member of the Deaf Association, says that education of deaf children in Malta is still poor. “Many of them are not being exposed to sign language and practically all the teachers supporting these children are not professionally trained in this area.” With the support of her parents and a teacher of the deaf who used to visit her twice a week, she has always attended mainstream schools and been able to live as normally as possible. But even with a good standard of education, she has always faced limitations in her studies and career – mostly because...

Modric, Marta win Best FIFA player 2018 awards

Real Madrid's Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was named Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year for 2018, while Orlando Pride's Brazil forward Marta won the women's award at a ceremony on Monday. Modric, 33, won the Champions League with Real and then played a major role in Croatia's run to the World Cup final where they were beaten by France. It is the first time since Brazilian Kaka's triumph in 2007 that the men's prize was not won by either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi -- neither of whom attended the ceremony held at London's Royal Festival Hall. Ronaldo, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in the close season, was second in this year's awards with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in third place. The 32-year-old Marta, who plays in the National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) in the United States, had won the previous FIFA Women's Player of the Year award five times, most recently in 2010. France's World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps took the Men's Coach of the Year award, with compatriot Reynald Pedros claiming the women's award after winning the Champions League with Olympique Lyonnais.
