The origins of Malta’s Medical School – December 19, 1676

Although the Jesuit College of higher education had existed in Valletta since the last decade of the 16th century, for a number of years there was as yet no Maltese university or medical school wherein Maltese students could be prepared locally for a medical career. Future doctors had, therefore, to proceed abroad to obtain medical qualifications even though the Order of St John’s Sacra Infermeria – as its hospital was officially called – provided much more than acceptable medical services, as attested by various foreign visitors, including Henry Teonge in 1675 and Edward Brown in 1676. They respectively reported that the infirmary’s beds were “extremely neat, and kept clean and sweet” and that the institution was the “very glory of Malta”. This void was partly amended on December 19, 1676, when Grand Master Nicholas Cotoner founded and endowed the School of Anatomy and Surgery in the Order’s Valletta Infirmary after having, exactly two months previously, appointed Rev. Dr Joseph Zammit as lettore in Anatomy and Surgery. An entry in the Order’s Archives, Volume 262, folio 62r, of the minutes of the meetings of the Council of State, briefly records this important event by...

Muscat 'has a vested interest in not taking action' on corruption - Occupy Justice

Updated at 8.30pm Protesters accused the Prime Minister on Sunday of knowing who owned mystery company Macbridge, as they marked the 14th month since journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated. Occupy Justice activists stood on the steps of the Office of the Prime Minister at Castille and held up cards reading “Who owns Macbridge?” Ms Caruana Galizia was murdered in a car bomb explosion exactly 14 months ago, on October 16, 2017. Macbridge was named in leaked documents as one of two companies which would be sending funds to offshore companies owned by minister Konrad Mizzi and chief of staff Keith Schembri. A joint investigation by Times of Malta and Reuters subsequently revealed that the other of the companies, 17 Black, is owned by Electrogas consortium director and Tumas Group CEO Yorgen Fenech. Ms Caruana Galizia was the first person to report on 17 Black's existence and its links to offshore companies owned by minister Mizzi and Mr Schembri.  In a statement, Occupy Justice accused the Prime Minister of being complicit in wrongdoing.  “Seven months ago we asked the Prime Minister who owns 17 Black, the other company feeding money into the accounts of his top aides.

Watch: Superb Milik hands Napoli dramatic win

A stoppage-time free kick from Arkadiusz Milik gave Napoli a 1-0 win over Cagliari on Sunday to keep them eight points behind Serie A leaders Juventus and end the Sardinian team’s unbeaten home run. Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti made six changes to the side that lost to Liverpool on Tuesday, sealing their elimination from the Champions League, and left out key players like Marek Hamsik, Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne. He was almost left to rue his decision as his side struggled to break down the home side, but Milik’s 91st-minute strike, the Pole’s seventh goal of the campaign, made them the first team to defeat Rolando Maran’s side at the Sardegna Arena this season. Diego Farias headed over for the hosts before Milik’s header came off the underside of the bar and bounced back into play, but the striker made amends when he swept a left-foot free kick sweetly into the top corner. Napoli remained second in the standings, six points clear of Inter Milan, with the gap to Juventus remaining at eight points following the champions' 1-0 win over local rivals Torino on Saturday. Cagliari remained 13th place on 17 points, six clear of the relegation zone. Earlier on Sunday,...

The Under-17 Sirens team have returned to Malta after taking part in the sixth edition of the Dario Aprile Memorial Tournament for youth waterpolo. The event, held at the Paolo Caldarella pool in Syracuse over three days – from December 7-9 – saw eight teams competing in the men’s Under-17 category.

The U-17 Sirens team played six games in just 48 hours and managed to reach the final, where they lost by just one goal to the Circolo Canottieri Ortigia. Equally spectacular was the final for the third place, which ended with the victory of hosts Sikelia over Roma Nova A after a penalty shoot-out.

Deputy Makkah governor reviews conservation efforts at Saudi wildlife Reserve

Author: Sun, 2018-12-16 23:09 Makkah Deputy Gov. Prince Abdullah bin Bandar bin Abdul Aziz, who is also the chairman of the board of directors of Imam Saud bin Abdul Aziz Reserve, reviewed the activities of the reserve on Sunday.  He was briefed on the role the reserve plays in the preservation of the natural environment and wildlife. The deputy governor also reviewed the steps the reserve has taken to reduce fishing and overgrazing. Saudi Arabia has made huge strides in environmental protection with initiatives to preserve the natural environment and wildlife that will boost ecotourism and protect and encourage vegetation. As part of these efforts, King Salman issued a royal order in June establishing the Council of Royal Reserves under the chairmanship of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Mahazah Al-Sayad Reserve was renamed Imam Saud bin Abdul Aziz Reserve. The royal decree stated that each natural reserve must have its own independent management and budget. The decree had given a commission at the Council of Ministers three months to appoint qualified leaders to handle the management of each reserve. Main category: Saudi ArabiaTags: Saudi ArabiaMakkah

Comprehensive plan urged to address issues facing Muslim world

Author: ARAB NEWSID: 1544990750090646900Sun, 2018-12-16 23:03 JEDDAH: Describing Saudi Arabia as the center of Islam, religious scholars and intellectuals said media attacks against the Kingdom offend more than 1.8 billion Muslims across the world. The scholars expressed their solidarity with Saudi Arabia on Sunday — the final day of a conference titled “International Conference on Islamic unity — the perils of labeling and exclusion” organized by the Muslim World League (MWL) in Makkah. They said the Kingdom and its leadership command great respect due to their services to Islam and Muslims. The conference, organized under the patronage of King Salman, was attended by more than 1,000 religious scholars and intellectuals from 128 countries. The participants of the conference called for a comprehensive plan to address sectarianism and extremism. They also stressed the need for creating effective channels of communication between followers of different Islamic schools of thought to remove misunderstandings and increase cooperation. They unanimously rejected sectarian views and extremist ideas and urged scholars and preachers to play their role in uniting Muslims. The scholars recommended the establishment of an all-inclusive committee to draft a comprehensive Islamic charter that lay down rules to resolve disputes between Muslim and to help forge unity among different schools of thought. They entrusted the MWL with the implementation of the decision through a comprehensive document titled “Makkah document.” The conference stressed the idea of nation state is an extension of the concept of the Ummah, which converges and integrates with other Muslim countries under the umbrella of the MWL. Its international political framework comes under the umbrella of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and its international economic framework under the umbrella of the Islamic Development Bank. In addition to other Islamic institutions, especially the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition. The closing statement urged the MWL to establish an international forum to promote common values among followers of different religions and cultures and, another forum to promote the values of tolerance and coexistence. It also stressed the importance of improving relations between Muslim sects. It highlighted the importance of rejecting futile debates between different sects or schools of thought and called on the media and other social institutions to help strengthen the values of moderation and unity. The participating scholars described themselves only as “Muslims” without referring to their respective sects or schools of thought. They decried religious edicts (fatwas) that incite hatred. They also stressed the need for finding a single scientific reference for each country and respecting the religious leaders of the minorities. The MWL secretary-general, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, said his organization is making efforts to forge unity among Muslims and to promote love and reconciliation. At the inauguration of the conference, Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal delivered a speech on behalf of King Salman underlining the need to remove misconceptions about Islam and Muslims through dialogue. He also urged Muslims to set aside their petty differences and to work together to achieve a great and prosperous future.

The three-month long cultural jamboree will feature glorious history and heritage of South Korea in the Kingdom. “The SCTH and the Korean National Museum are jointly organizing this exhibition on Korean history and culture from Dec. 19, 2018, to March 15, 2019, in Riyadh,” said Korean Ambassador Jo Byung-wook. Jo said the exhibition is the continuation of a series of cultural exchanges between the two countries that started with the “Roads of Arabia” exhibition jointly organized by the SCTH and the Korean National Museum in Seoul last year. The “Roads of Arabia” exhibition was a huge success that attracted tens of thousands of Koreans to Saudi history and culture, he added. We expect the Korean culture and history exhibition in Riyadh to be equally successful,” said the envoy. “The Korean exposition will promote the mutual understanding and goodwill between Korea and Saudi Arabia,” he said. He said the total number of Saudis, who visited Korea in 2017 exceeded 11,300, which represents a marked increase over the past years. “In fact, it is very encouraging to see more and more Saudis choose Korea as their destination for business, tourism, higher education, and health care,” he added. The top diplomat said more than 440 Saudi students are currently studying in Korea. Korea, he said, has played a key role in the development of the Kingdom’s infrastructure while Riyadh has been a stable energy supplier to Seoul.
