Выборы в ДНР и ЛНР решили перенести «по совокупности факторов»

Решение о переносе выборов глав и парламентов самопровозглашенных Донецкой и Луганской народных республик с осени на неопределенный срок согласовано с Москвой и обусловлено, в частности, отсутствием прямой необходимости в переизбрании руководителей и парламентариев, рисками для минских переговоров и перспективами новых санкций.

WATCH: Citizen Announces He's Running Against Corrupt Sheriff, His Home is Raided, Wife Kidnapped

In the land of the free, practicing democracy is often futile and even more often, highly corrupt. Illustrating the corrupt nature of this process is a case out of Georgia in which a sheriff with a history of alleged criminal activity is accused of harassing, intimidating, and even arresting innocent people who challenge his authority. On August 10, Robert Hawes, a former deputy with the Clayton County sheriff’s department, announced that he would be running against the incumbent Sheriff Victor Hill. Days later police would be in his home, kidnapping his wife.

Half of homeless shelter residents are foreigners

When 120 migrants were evicted from a Qormi cow shed, at least a quarter of them ended up on the streets. The case threw fresh light on the social reality that is driving desperate people to sleep in fields, on beaches, in cars or stables.  At least half of the people seeking shelter from homelessness are foreign, recent data from two main charities shows. According to YMCA Malta, which runs a shelter for homeless people, a third of its foreign clients were EU citizens, while nearly half were migrants. Meanwhile a third of the men at the Dar Papa Franġisku shelter, run by Caritas, are European and another third are African, with ages varying between 25 and 55. Additionally, while 70 per cent of the women and children hosted at its sister shelter Dar Maria Dolores are Maltese, the rest are mostly European. The Sunday Times of Malta sought comments from the two NGOs after 120 migrants were evicted from a Qormi cow shed and at least a quarter of them ended up on the streets. Some found shelter with friends, but others begged the man running the bed-rental business at the farm to be allowed back. A daily concern “When we are full up, we refer clients to the national agency Appoġġ,...

GRTU deems competition law proposals ‘positive’

Proposals presented by the government to restore full powers to the competition watchdog, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority,  have received the thumbs up by traders who described the move as a “positive” one. The Chamber of Small and Medium Enterprises (GRTU) was reacting when this newspaper sought its view on a set of amendments to the Competition Act which were published for public consultation a few days ago. The changes, which have been in the pipeline for more than two years, were dictated by a landmark Court of Appeal judgment, which in May 2016 ruled that certain provisions of the Competition Act were unconstitutional. Since then the regulator has refrained from imposing any administrative fines, thus rendering itself a toothless watchdog. Under the proposed model the Competition and Consumer Appeals Tribunal will be abolished, and instead decisions made by the regulator could be challenged before the Civil Court (Commercial Section). Asked for her reaction GRTU CEO Abigail Mamo told The Sunday Times of Malta that the proposed revision was a move in the right direction. The proposals seek to harmonise the role of the civil court and that of the Malta...

Our world in 90 seconds

It took less than 90 seconds to graphically reveal the horrific underbelly of globalisation and of ‘modern’ consumerism and business. In April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed, killing 1,134 people and injuring an additional 2,500. For many locals and trade unions, the event was deemed as mass industrial homicide. Rana Plaza contained clothing factories, a bank, apartments and several shops and while the latter (on the lower ground floors) were immediately closed following the discovery of cracks in the building, no such action was taken with clothing factories. The reaction to the collapse and the subsequent court case fuelled action when about 250 companies accepted two agreements an Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh and the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety. These agreements were designed to significantly improve safety in the estimated 2,300 factories which supplied western brand names. Judging by local reactions to the impact of the agreements, they have made a real difference. The fear of losing contracts from western buyers forced thousands of factory owners to invest in fire doors, sprinkler systems, electrical upgrades,...

Gig by Australian guitarist

Australian solo guitarist Plini will perform a concert entitled ‘Plini & Friends’ at the Valletta Campus Theatre, Valletta, on Wednesday. At 26, Plini has been ranked among the best progressive rock guitarists today and has already amassed critical praise from both the press and fellow musicians. Guitarist Steve Vai described Plini’s debut album Handmade Cities as “one of the finest, forward-thinking, melodic, rhythmically and harmonically deep, evolution of rock/metal instrumental guitar records I have ever heard”. Plini has also released three EPs and a variety of singles and has collaborated with some notable names in the field, including Marco Minnemann, Chris Letchford, Troy Wright and Rick Graham. In 2017, Plini started performing at a series of headline tours of Europe, the UK, North America and Australia. At Wednesday’s concert, organised by PS Music, Plini will be supported by genre-hopping local act The Ranch. Plini & Friends will be take place on Wednesday at 8pm at the Valletta Campus Theatre, St Paul’s Street, Valletta. For tickets, visit www.ticketline.com.mt.
