In the past few months, in many locations in Malta and Gozo, street lights have been changed from Sodium lights to LED white lights (5000k/4000K).
Sodium light emits warm bright light which, apart from being aesthetically pleasing to the eye because it complements the colour and texture of the Maltese limestone, it also effects us psychologically in a positive way particularly in contrast to the newly installed LED white lights.
As researchers from the Harvard Medical School have found, LED white /blue light has a negative effect on the body’s biological clock and can also contribute to a number of diseases as well as obesity (http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/blue-light-has-a-dark-side).
Besides the above, bright white LED lighting creates a potential danger for traffic accidents and less safer environment for pedestrians. This is due to the narrow beam angle of these lights which only light up a restricted area leaving many parts of the street in pitch darkness. This effects our vision even more when one looks directly into the lights.
Such consequences can be avoided by either replacing them with LEDs (2700K), which emit a warmer light, are still energy efficient and produce less light pollution, or by adding warm light filters to the presently installed lamps.
In Malta there are not a lot of motorcycles and Maltese people think that it is highly risky to ride a motorcycle. Insurance companies offer No Claims discount schemes in a Car Insurance reducing the annual premium from 10 to 70% and more depending the number of the years a driver has no claims starting from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 5. This logic wants to reward good drivers.
The same should be applied to good drivers riding motorcycles often every day to go at work or to enjoy the Maltese island during the weekends or because is their passion.
Who rides a motorcycle often, a Father that has a family at home waiting for him, we don't want to die in an road accident. Riding motorcycles we can reduce the traffic, the stress and emissions of CO2. Think about the policemen that use motorcycles for their job.
THE MAJORITY OF THOSE LIVING IN MALTA AND GOZO, HAVE SHOWN THAT THEY DESIRE THAT THE OPERA HOUSE IN VALLETTA, DESIGNED BY ARCHITECT BARRY, BOMBED DURING WW2, BE REBUILT IN ITS ORIGINAL DESIGN.
Din il-petizzjoni qed tissejjah wara r-rapport tal-Bord tal-Governanza tal-Kunsilli Lokali
This group is for those who are fed up of seeing or suffering discrimination just because they are either tattooed, pierced, or both - being it at the workplace, outside with friends or walking around with their kids etc.
This will be a forum where everyone can speak their mind, add topic related articles and post comments from witnesses or those who have suffered injustices.
The Maltese Islands are an important resting place for thousands of birds, many that are internationally protected, others rare or on the verge of extinction. Each year, thousands are being slaughtered indiscriminately on despite laws that are supposed to protect them.
While the authorities have tried their best, it is clear that the situation is beyond any control. The shooting of all species, including protected & endangered birds is now starting to affect Malta's Tourism image across the globe.
The people are tired of being afraid to walk the countryside to enjoy the sound of nature for fear of being threatened, for fear of having to cover the eyes of our children from the bloodbaths that occur yearly, for fear of being powerless to protect thousands of birds that are being shot down. We are now tired of any administration that refuses to make a responsible and exemplary decision for our country and the world to admire.
The rampant indiscriminate shooting and slaughter of birds in Malta is rife. Hunteers are allowed to practice the hobby of shooting and hunting birds. Many hunters ignore the fact that protected species should be allowed to fly freely and shoot them down. Hunters need to be stopped.
This petition aims to collect a minimum of 10,000 signatures and force the introduction of a total ban on bird hunting in Malta and its territorial limitation
Valletta is a stunning city. For years we have been waiting for it to wake up in the evenings and at night. We want to sit outside and sip a drink, talk to friends local or not, enjoy a lovely meal in our amazing capital city and go back home happy that we have done so.
We are tired of all the negativity surrounding being in Valletta no matter what time of day or night it is. We are tired of coming out the theatre or a lovely meal and find a ticket slapped to our windscreen for too many reasons to mention. We are tired of hearing, and saying, 'Valletta is impossible - let's go somewhere else'. This is OUR CAPITAL CITY and as such, it belongs to all.
We the undersigned are proposing the following:
Since 1988 thousands of men, women and children have perished in the Mediterranean attempting the so-called ‘voyage of hope’ to Europe. Tens of billions of euros are spent every year to control our borders and immigration processing.
In Europe, we should have a better expenditure management and better respect for human rights.
Ask the European Parliament to reform laws on immigration and a more humane management of migration flows by creating a European Organization for Management of the Immigration and Asylum Requests.
ACTA - a global treaty - could allow corporations to censor the Internet. Negotiated in secret by a small number of rich countries and corporate powers, it would set up a shadowy new anti-counterfeiting body to allow private interests to police everything that we do online and impose massive penalties -- even prison sentences -- against people they say have harmed their business.
Here is a video with a better explanation:
Ghalkemm f'Malta sar referendum konsultattiv dwar il-ligi tad-divorzju, il-mistoqsija ma kenitx cara u lanqas ir-rizultat ma hu daqshekk car.
Infatti kien hemm hafna li vvutaw kontra u hafna ohrajn li astjenew. Ir-rieda ta' dawn il-votanti ma tistghax tkun injorata.
Barra minn hekk, dan ir-referendum sar meta din il-ligi kienet ghadha ma tfasslitx.
Ladarba r-referendum konsultattiv sar qabel ma din il-ligi kienet ghaddiet mill-istadji kollha tal-parlament, allura l-argument tar-referendum ma jaghmel l-ebda sens. Infatti min qed igib l-iskuza tar-referendum qieghed iqarraq.
Barra minn hekk, kulhadd jaf li f’demokrazija, min jitla’ fil-parlament mistenni jimxi skond il-programm elettorali tieghu.
Il-Ligi tad-divorzju ma kenitx fil-programm elettorali tal-ebda membru parlamentari prezenti. Ghalhekk l-ebda membru parlamentari prezenti ma ghandu l-mandat elettorali biex jillegizla fuq id-divorzju.
Bullfighting, people leaving puppies squealing to get out with few holes on top, dogs runover by cars.
One of Malta’s most attractive points is the relative safety in which we go about our daily lives. Up to recently, Maltese nationals and foreigners residing in Malta alike, all went about their daily lives, knowing that they live in a safe environment.
No one ever thought that in Malta you could get mugged in your own street, just outside your own home! What has this country come to? Have we fallen in love with the EU to the extent that we want our crime levels to mirror those of most states?
A friend of mine moved to Malta recently as “it is a safe place to bring up your children”! At this rate, if the authorities do nothing about it, these lovely words will carry no more weight!
Are the respective authorities on the ball on this subject? Should we revert to Neighbourhood Watch in highly sensitive villages and towns, to tackle this issue? What are we waiting for? Some real serious accident to happen, perhaps? An over-protective parent or boyfriend, acting impulsively to save their valuables, ending up seriously injured at the hands of these criminals?
14. Mcfly for Malta!

15. Save Hondoq
There is an application before MEPA which proposes to develop a large area of unspoilt land at Hondoq ir-Rummien in Gozo - one of the few remaining tracts of open countryside left in the Maltese Islands.
