Enforcement officers to be posted on Coast Road after fatal accidents

Date: Thu, 22 Mar 2018 07:13:00 +0100
Enforcement officers could be posted along the Coast Road as soon as this weekend to ensure motorists stick to the speed limit and avoid dangerous driving, a Transport Malta spokesman said. The decision comes after the deaths of two motorcyclists along that stretch of road barely a day apart. Malta Road Safety Council representative Pierre Vella told the Times of Malta accidents could be reduced in fairly obvious ways, like reducing speed and dangerous manoeuvres. However, there were certain obvious aspects of riding a motorcycle, such as the driver’s vulnerability in the case of an accident, that could also be tackled. “There are six enforcement officers and all of them wear inflatable jackets, which act like an air bag, protecting them if they are flung off the motorbike for any reason,” he said. Mr Vella said photographers waited at strategic spots along the stretch of road to take shots of bikers passing by, which pictures were then available for sale. The practice, he noted, could unfortunately encourage bikers to “show off” for the cameras. There were 15,245 traffic accidents in 2016, the last full year for which statistics are available. Of these, 1,853 resulted in... >

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg apologised on Wednesday for mistakes his company made in how it handled data belonging to 50 million of its users and promised tougher steps to restrict developers' access to such information. The world's largest social media network is facing growing government scrutiny in Europe and the United States about a whistleblower's allegations that London-based political consultancy Cambridge Analytica improperly accessed user information to build profiles on American voters that were later used to help elect U.S. President Donald Trump in 2016. "This was a major breach of trust. I'm really sorry this happened. We have a basic responsibility to protect people's data," Zuckerberg said in an interview with CNN, breaking a public silence since the scandal erupted at the weekend. Zuckerberg said in a post on Facebook the company "made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it."   He said the social network planned to conduct an investigation of thousands of apps that have used Facebook's platform, restrict developer access to data, and give members a tool that lets them to disable access to their Facebook data more easily.

Appreciation: Mgr Charles Vella

Date: Thu, 22 Mar 2018 06:05:00 +0100
Peter Calamatta writes: Very early on Saturday morning a great man and cleric passed away to better pastures. Mgr Charles Vella, known by all those close to him as Dun Charles ta’ Kana left this world just a few months before his 90th birthday. Fr Charles was a living monument to how a person can dedicate his life totally and unconditionally towards the betterment of other persons who are less fortunate. For me personally and for all our family he has been our moral rock and mentor for over 60 years. Even when he was away from Malta we were always in contact and we visited him often in Milan, which became his second home and the renowned San Raffaele Hospital his base for reaching out. I feel honoured to have included a long chapter about Fr Charles in my book Me and my Mentors published and launched just a few days before he passed away. When I gave him a copy of the book he immediately went to his chapter, read it silently while moving his lips and then with tear-filled eyes he whispered towards me: “Peter, I do not deserve this, you would have made it even without my help.” Such was the humility of the man who outwardly may have seemed domineering and pompous but in reality... >
