A lot of people have been victims of negativity and criticism on social media. Whatever you do online, there is always somebody ready to criticise. And when hit by unjustified hate, most people take a step back. But hiding and feeling bad about it is not going to help anyone. The more you expose the hate you get, treating it with irony and irreverence, the less power it has to cause harm. This is why Diesel has launched Haute Couture, a unique collection designed to do just that: disempower hate. Diesel took some of the hate the brand received, like “Diesel is dead” and “Diesel is not cool anymore”, showing them with pride and turning them into unique items. And because no one gets more hate than celebrities, Diesel is kicking this off with a group of polarising global personalities including Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Bella Thorne, Bria Vinaite, Tommy Dorfman, Miles Heizer, Yovanna Ventura, Barbie Ferreira, Yoo Ah-In and Jonathan Bellini, to help deliver an important message: «The more hate you wear the less you care.» They chose some of the worst comments they have ever received, and Diesel designed exclusive Haute Couture items for each of them. All these comments are now...
More than 800 students are still on the waiting list for a seat on a free mini-bus that will transport them to school when the new scholastic year kicks off in the coming days. Speaking during a press briefing on Saturday, Education Minister Evarist Bartolo confirmed there were still 829 students from Church and independent schools on the waiting list for transport as part of a scheme that will see the government funding the service for all students. Admitting that he was concerned about these students, Mr Bartolo said the ministry was currently carrying out a mapping and matching exercise in an attempt to address the situation. Read: Church, private schools fear transport chaos Times of Malta reported on Thursday that many schools were told by service providers they could not guarantee the service like previous years and parents who have paid for private school transport for many years were informed there was no room for their children anymore because vans were already full-up. Asked when he believed the situation would be resolved, given that school doors re-open next week, Mr Bartolo said he could not say but insisted that the government was committed to addressing the...

Drug giants Novartis, Bayer and Roche on Friday lost a bid to stop British doctors from recommending a cheaper drug option for people with an eye disease that causes blindness, the High Court in London ruled. A drug industry group said the decision was “extraordinary« and was bad news for future regulatory cooperation between Britain and the European Union after Britain's exit from the bloc next year. The companies had sought to block doctors from 12 health groups in the north of England from making Roche's cancer therapy Avastin the preferred option for wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), even though it is not licensed for this use. Avastin works similarly to Bayer's Eylea and Roche's and Novartis's Lucentis, but those drugs were made specifically for the eye. »Treating clinicians can lawfully choose Avastin for opthalmic use on grounds of cost," according to the ruling. It added that NICE, the UK's drug cost effectiveness agency, had concluded that using Avastin for AMD was safe. Avastin costs around £28 per injection, according to the judgment, while Eylea costs around £816 per injection and Lucentis costs around 551 pounds per injection. The actual prices vary,...
