Converted Buskett building to be used as bird rehabilitation centre

06 July 2015 15:20:01 timesofmalta.com

BirdLife Malta this morning formally took possession of a building which will house Malta’s first centre for the rehabilitation of shot and injured birds. Parliamentary Secretary for Agriculture, Fisheries and Animal Rights, Roderick Galdes, formally handed over the building to BirdLife Malta at Buskett. BirdLife Malta President Geoffrey Saliba said the society welcomed the government’s commitment to bird rehabilitation in Malta, recognising the need for a well-equipped centre to care for the many birds that were injured over Malta and Gozo. "Previously, birds requiring specialist care had to be sent to a rehabilitation centre in Sicily. Now, thanks to this centre, we will have the necessary facilities to carry out this important work here in Malta, allowing birds to rest and recover in the hands of professionals. This will greatly improve their chances of surviving to be released back into the wild," he added. BirdLife will be working to ensure that the centre is fully equipped and ready before the autumn migration season, he added. The building, an old farmhouse, was renovated by the government and provided rent-free to BirdLife Malta who will be running the facility. The...

06 July 2015 15:12:33 Morocco World News

Rabat - Paris Saint-Germain are said to be interested in signing Morocco's prodigy Hachim Mastour. According to Italian Sports Website Le Corriere dello Sport, AC Milan is waiting for a serious offer from Paris St Germain. It’s believed Milan would let the 17-year-old whizkid go for around €5m, said Le Corriere dello Sport. Mastour, who made his international debut for Morocco last month, has also been linked with Spanish archrivals Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, Mastour is still waiting to receive his senior debut for AC Milan. The young Milanista already has sponsorship deals and made ads with Brazil international and Barcelona forward Neymar. Earlier reports suggested that AC Milan may consider offering Mastour and three million euros in order to sign Besiktas winger of Moroccan origin Kerim Frei. © Morocco World News.

German EconMin Warns Greeks 'Need Help'

Germany's Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel has said Athens needs "urgent" humanitarian aid. He has also warned Greece is a "politically torn" country threatened by insolvency which needs humanitarian assistance from all EU member states. However, Athens must also "put forward present new proposals that go beyond what has been presented until now," according to Der Spiegel. This comes as the EU's economy and finance ministers have been commenting throughout the day on the rejection of bailout terms offered by Greece's international creditor in a referendum the country held on Sunday, July 5.

Lawyer fumes over 'white block' jibe

06 July 2015 15:04:38 timesofmalta.com

Labour deputy leader Toni Abela stormed out of a courtroom today after a lawyer passed a remark referring to the "white block" seen being cut at the Attard Labour Party club in 2011. Dr Abela took offence to a comment passed by lawyer Joe Zammit Maempel who is representing blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia in a libel suit Dr Abela filed against her over a blog in which she described him as "a clown" and as someone who was "crassly incompetent". The blog had been uploaded in August 2008, soon after his election as deputy leader. Dr Abela was making submissions before Magistrate Francesco Depasquale when he referred to a case in which Ms Caruana Galizia allegedly failed to declare income of some of her magazines. At that point Dr Zammit Maempel said: "You have the cheek to mention those things? Who are you to talk when you did not even know the difference between a white block and a block of ice." He was referring to the case revolving around suspected drug dealing at the Attard Labour club in 2011 when the club president had caught someone cutting up drugs in the kitchen. He disposed of the drugs and reported the matter to Dr Abela, who holds the legal title for Labour’s...

Overuse of nursing home antibiotics may put all residents at risk

06 July 2015 15:04:37 timesofmalta.com

Some nursing home facilities prescribe antibiotics more often than others, which is tied to increased health risks, even for residents who don’t receive the medications, according to a study. About two-thirds of nursing home residents receive antibiotic treatment of some kind each year. Prescribing the drugs inappropriately increases the risk of medication reactions, allergies, diarrhoea and infections by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, the authors write in JAMA Internal Medicine. “Wherever antibiotic prescriptions have been systematically audited, be it in acute care hospitals, long-term care settings or in community clinics, there has been a consistent finding that one-third to one-half of antibiotic treatments are unnecessary or inappropriate,” said lead author Nick Daneman of the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center at the University of Toronto. “Appropriate antibiotic prescribing may be a particular challenge in the nursing home, though, because histories are difficult to obtain from patients with cognitive impairment, elderly patients often have infection with atypical symptoms such as absence of fever, and there is less access to on-site doctors and laboratory testing,”...

Squirrels use nuts to solve puzzles

06 July 2015 15:04:36 timesofmalta.com

Squirrels have shown scientists they really know how to ‘use their nuts’ when searching for food. A group of five grey squirrels surprised researchers with the speed at which they solved a puzzle involving hidden hazelnuts. The intelligence test was in the form of a box with 12 sunken wells, four of which were hollow. Nuts were placed in the four hollow wells diagonally across from each other, so that the least efficient way to look for them was by going from well to well in a clockwise or anti-clockwise sequence. Over a number of successive attempts, the squirrels – named Simon, Arnold, Sarah, Leonard and Suzy – worked out that if one well contained a reward, another nut would be located in the well diagonally opposite it. Researcher Pizza Ka Yee Chow, from the University of Exeter, said: “This was only a small study, but the results are quite remarkable – the squirrels learned to pick the diagonally opposite well if the first one they picked contained a nut. “They made a decreased number of errors as they learned and progressively changed their tactic to increase efficiency and obtain the hidden rewards.” Co-author Lisa Leaver, also from the University of Exeter, said: “We...
