Malta news: Lucio Dalla
Lucio Dalla death big loss for Italy – Calleja
Popular Italian singer-songwriter and musician Lucio Dalla died in Switzerland yesterday, during a European concert tour. He would have turned 69 on Sunday – his date of birth, 4 March, 1943, was the title of one of his most famous songs. He came to Malta for a concert with Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja last July, but had been visiting regularly since 2007. As news about the Italian musician’s death spread like wildfire yesterday afternoon, the tenor wrote on Twitter: “Rip Lucio Dalla. You will be missed.” Contacted by The Malta Independent, Calleja said: “It is a great pity that the nation of Italy has lost one of its major icons.” Dalla’s company, Ph.D srl Music Management in Bologna, said the singer died, apparently of a heart attack, after eating breakfast at his hotel in Montreaux, Switzerland. He had given a concert there the evening before. Dalla wrote songs for himself and others, as well as for films. His song Caruso sold nine million copies worldwide. The late opera great Luciano Pavarotti sang Caruso with Dalla at a 1992 Italian concert.(independent.com.mt) The death of an artist is always a tragedy, because it contributes to the development of society.

Abnormally large mauve stingers sighted
Abnormally large mauve stingers pelagia noctiluca have been sighted in dense aggregations, known as blooms in numerous localities, including Cirkewwa and Zurrieq over the past weeks, marine biologist Alan Deidun, one of the coordinators of the Spot the Jellyfish initiative said. The mauve stinger's sting can be powerful and painful. Dr Deidun said that in some instances, the bell diameter of the individuals seen exceeded 10cms, suggesting that the sighted individuals were mature ones who normally visited shallower depths at this time of the year to reproduce before dying. A juvenile jellyfish specimen is normally formed after six weeks from the time eggs are laid by the mature individuals. Normally, such an annual reproduction by mature mauve stinger individuals takes place over the December-January period. In addition to the mauve stinger blooms, the Spot the Jellyfish team also received numerous reports of other gelatinous species, most of which are non-stingers, including a variety of comb jellies and salps, which bloom shortly after the maximum concentrations of chlorophyll from microscopic plants they feed upon are recorded.(timesofmalta.com) Does it mean that these jellyfish can influence the Maltese tourist periods?

Patients lining up hospital corridors
An elderly woman’s eyes follow the movement of strangers who constantly walk past her through the corridor at the hospital’s emergency department where she is being treated. The strangers, some of whom are there to visit loved ones, feel the uncomfortable gaze of the patients as they lie on the beds, stretchers or wheelchairs that line the corridor at Mater Dei Hospital. Some of the patients, most of them elderly, turn to face the wall and give their back to the passers by – an illusion of privacy. Their bags are tucked underneath their beds and poles support intravenous drips. This is the situation at the hospital’s emergency department, as captured in video footage obtained by The Times. The footage shows more than 20 patients lining the corridor near the department’s Area 2, known as the paediatric corridor, sources confirmed. The corridor and Area 2 – where the second priority cases are meant to be treated – have been converted into a full-blown ward with a total of some 50 patients. The state hospital has been plagued by bed shortages ever since it opened its doors four years ago. The bed shortage has often led to patients being treated in corridors as wards get full. Last year, 7,500 people were treated in corridors. The situation gets worse in the cold winter months when flu and infections are common. Over the past weeks the government decided to add two or three beds in each of the 11 medical and surgical wards to try and tackle overcrowding.(timesofmalta.com) The State did not afford investire in hospitals? Or are they just poorly managed?
