CEO Backing Lula Since 1989 Now Endorses Silva in Brazil Vote

29 August 2014 07:13:41 WN.com - America News

The owner of Brazil’s largest wheat mill has endorsed presidential candidate Marina Silva, saying she is more likely to adopt policies necessary to put the economy on track than President Dilma Rousseff from the Workers’ Party. Lawrence Pih, chief executive officer and owner of Moinho Pacifico Industria e Comercio, said he would take part in Silva’s campaign if asked. He said he distanced himself from the Workers’ Party in the past five or six years because of a disagreement with the “populist” measures that were adopted. Pih, 72,...

T’is the season to be noisy

29 August 2014 07:07:57 timesofmalta.com

When I moved to Malta a number of months ago I started to wonder why so many Maltese people talked so loudly. Not being a native speaker, I had no idea what their conversations were about and I therefore presumed that they were simply argumentative. However, as I came to know more and more Maltese people I realised that, even when we were simply discussing the weather, they would speak loudly. This became a bit of a quandary to me and, then, after a few weeks, the festas and the fireworks started. I supposed that the poor people living in Malta were simply becoming deafened by a noise...

Shining example

29 August 2014 07:07:56 timesofmalta.com

As a permanent deacon in the Roman Catholic Church making regular visits with my wife from the UK to Gozo for holiday and to visit Gozitan friends, I have been blessed in assisting Bishop Mario Grech at a First Communion celebration in St George’s, Victoria in May and at a Holy Eucharist feast in Marsalforn on August 17. In exposition and adoration at the Clarissi Convent too I have had the opportunity to exercise my ministry, which I was ordained to in June 2013. During the procession in Marsalforn following concelebrated Mass, I was very impressed by the number of people who came out of... This article is part of our premium content.

Confusion and lack of vision

29 August 2014 07:07:56 timesofmalta.com

On July 28, I arrived at 11.25am to catch the noon Gozo ferry. I was waiting in the fifth lane and there were nine or 10 lanes of other cars waiting to board. I presumed I would be able to board the noon ferry without difficulty. But I was wrong. The MV Gaudos, which has no hoistable car decks, started loading. The problem started when someone instructed the sole Gozo Channel worker there to allow some vans to jump the queue. Numerous protests, including mine, were in vain. He kept saying he was given orders but would not say by whom. None of the many managerial staff members/consultants... This article is part of our premium content.

Archbishop’s many virtues

29 August 2014 07:07:55 timesofmalta.com

I fully concur with Philip Farrugia Randon’s contribution ‘Wrong target for criticism’ (August 22) about Archbishop Paul Cremona. I have known the Archbishop for many years and always admired his humility, his spirituality, his outgoing attitude towards those – young and old – who come in contact with him, his sincere and open smile, his pacific nature. But, then, just like you and me and all human beings, he has his defects and, in this day and age, being a member of the clergy and an archbishop, his defects would be more than visible. At the moment, as Farrugia Randon rightly puts it, he... This article is part of our premium content. Full story is available on Times of Malta Premium.

EU wake up please!

29 August 2014 07:07:54 timesofmalta.com

To say we live in difficult times would be an understatement. What is being witnessed (and more worryingly what is not) is on the verge of apocalyptic. As we Maltese enjoy our usual summer down time, it is hard to believe that elsewhere on the shores of the Mediterranean others are experiencing hell on earth. Innocent civilians are being butchered while others are living in terror because of political stubbornness, religious extremism and greed. However, while these crises are unravelling in close proximity to southern and eastern Europe, it seems that the EU has turned into a spectator... This article is part of our premium content.

Diversity in swimwear

29 August 2014 07:07:53 timesofmalta.com

Declaring himself an atheist (August 23), Karl Consiglio goes on to say that women should be allowed to swim fully clothed or even topless. This following the incident of the woman not being permitted to swim fully clothed in the Marsa Sports Club pool. Apart from the fact that the fully clothed lady, as a member of the club, had to obey the rules, I am sure there are many out-of-the way beaches where she could swim and where many females swim topless. Atheism has nothing to do with it. This article is part of our premium content. Full story is available on Times of Malta Premium.

Law-abiding citizens betrayed

29 August 2014 07:07:53 timesofmalta.com

No sooner did the public learn that the Land Department has virtually ceased to apply the law on the illegal occupation of public land (with only 31 enforcements in 18 months, compared with an average of 170 a year in the previous five years), than it transpires that Enemalta is in the process of installing smart meters at the illegal boathouses in Armier. The decision comes as the government seeks to ‘sanction’ the illegal shanty town. This means, in plain English, that the government intends to make legal the theft of public land already committed by about 800 boathouse owners. Worse,...

Islam: a Christian challenge

29 August 2014 07:07:52 timesofmalta.com

The absolute horror at the atrocities that Christians and other religious minorities are suffering in almost all the Muslim majority countries of the Middle East cannot be allowed to prevail over the sober observance of the Christian principle of “hate the sin but love the sinner”. This is never easy and this time around it is harder still. The images of unspeakable cruelty reserved by Allah-worshipping warriors for what they see as illegitimate religious minorities and the barbaric brutality served on American journalist James Foley indeed make it very hard not merge the sin with the...

Challenge to the NSO

29 August 2014 07:07:51 timesofmalta.com

Inside a week, Malta’s tourism grew from 30 per cent to 35 per cent of GDP, that is, if statements by outgoing and incoming Malta Hotels and Restaurants chairmen are anything to go by. Not their fault really. I blame the National Statistics Office which, for some mysterious reason, has been unwilling to identify tourism from a raft of other ‘services’ in the act of computing relative economic sectors’ contribution to the GDP. The NSO has indeed come a long way since Malta joined the EU. It is admirably reliable and punctual, in fact always to Eurostat’s satisfaction. Nevertheless, it never...

Icelandic volcano alert raised to red after eruption, no volcanic ash detected

29 August 2014 07:07:50 timesofmalta.com

A volcanic eruption has occurred near Iceland's Dyngjujokull glacier, prompting authorities to raise the warning code for aviation to red, the highest level, but no volcanic ash has been detected, Iceland's authorities said. There has been heightened seismic activity in the area for about a week. "The Icelandic Met Office has raised the aviation colour code over the eruption site to red and the Icelandic Air Traffic Control has closed down the airspace from the earth up to 18000 feet," Iceland's National Crisis Coordination Centre said. "No volcanic ash has been detected with the radar system at the moment....Seismic eruption tremor is low indicating effusive eruption without significant explosive activity." Ash from the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano in 2010 shut down much of Europe's airspace for six days. The red code indicates that an eruption is imminent or underway with a significant emission of ash likely.

CHAHUITES, Mexico -- The largest crackdown by Mexican authorities on illegal migration in decades has decreased the flow of Central American migrants trying to reach the United States, and has dramatically cut the number of child migrants and families, according to officials and eyewitness accounts along the perilous route. Convoys of Mexican federal police and immigration service employees in southern Mexico have begun scouring the tracks of the infamous freight train known as "La Bestia," or The Beast, hauling migrants from the rail cars and sending them to deportation centers. They have also set up moving roadblocks, checking the documents of passengers on interstate buses. Associated...
