Hi Stu, I live in the Eastern Cape but had never heard of the Tsitsa Falls ! Guess it's a good reminder about how much of South Africa I still have to see. Are the 'falls' in the Wild Coast? nic stevens

Council for now is now personalized and clueless on how it can resolve the issues affecting the city, except for its use of heavy handedness as well as in undertaking projects that it fails to complete due to lack of funds. A case in point is the council's promise a few weeks ago to do repairs on the Mbare Musika bus terminus as well as to fence off the area. Nothing has been done. Right now they are busy clearing large chunks of land for the purported construction of new bus pick up points, but the question is: Does council have the resources to complete the projects? We have to note that those projects cost millions of dollars to construct. At the moment council is pumping water that is smelly into the people's homes, yet they can not adequately provide clean water. The best council could have done was to make improvements to the existing facilities that are already run down before undertaking projects that it will not be able to complete after having chewed into the meager funds coming into the council coffers. We await to see the official opening of the new bus termini.

Excellent post (95 Theses) I've decided not to post there anymore, you were right, about the spam. My second post was at AltRight, no link, I rephrased, it posted, I forgot about it. But ALL my gone posts at AltRight are “spam”, no Removed (as elsewhere) With 10 posts at AltRight, and eight spam, I've better odds at AmRen. Good points about upvotes. I can personally attest I've seen you be a good ally. Try not to be discouraged by those who look with disfavor on you. Sometimes the only satisfaction to be had is not rising to the bait. I don't see you strike first blows, I see a man with dignity, who has insight. Thanks again.

In addition to diet, the prevalence of high fructose corn syrup in the food supply, the proliferation of sugared sodas as replacement for water intake, the proliferation of artificially sweetened sodas as replacement for sugared sodas, which actually spike blood sugar levels worse than real sugar with the exception of stevia (a natural sweetener), there is the racial component. Non-hispanic Blacks in America have a higher rate of obesity than other groups with what the government calls Hispanics (actually mestizos) having an obesity rate that chases closely behind Blacks. While the Black population in America has been mostly steady over time, the mestizo population is not. It is now estimated that we have 60,000,000 foreigners in this country and that's going to skew results toward obesity unless they're all Asians, who have a very low obesity rate, much lower than other peoples. So part of it is diet and changes to the food supply, and likely advertising. What happens to people's dietary habits when they are innundated with advertisements constantly telling them to eat or drink this or that? What about the increase in sedentary lifestyles caused by our high technology society? But another component is likely race, with the increasing obesity rates simply a consequence of the changing, darkening face of the country.

Diet is an important factor in shaping the gut ecosystem. A diet of highly processed foods, for example, has been linked to a less diverse gut community in people. Gordon's team demonstrated the complex interaction among food, microbes and body weight by feeding their humanized mice a specially prepared unhealthy chow that was high in fat and low in fruits, vegetables and fiber (as opposed to the usual high-fiber, low-fat mouse kibble). Given this “Western diet,” the mice with obese-type microbes proceeded to grow fat even when housed with lean cagemates. The unhealthy diet somehow prevented the virtuous bacteria from moving in and flourishing. The interaction between diet and gut bacteria can predispose us to obesity from the day we are born, as can the mode by which we enter the world. Studies have shown that both formula-fed babies and infants delivered by cesarean section have a higher risk for obesity and diabetes than those who are breast-fed or delivered vaginally.

It is stoppable, though. Diet, exercise, portion control, choosing movement over inactivity. Stairs over elevator, parking far away, can help. Once started, momentum is easier to maintain. Women shouldn't be afraid to use weights. We can open our own jars, ladies, and a little muscle definition never hurt anybody.

In "many other countries" households are provided by multiple bins (colour coded) of either 120 litres or 240 litres. Domestic waste is collected every 2 weeks, even in summer where temperatures reach 36 C. People fill the bins with appropriate garbage bags that are tied to be leak free. You don't find people using shopping bags that are filled with garbage and left open as shown in the picture above. The additional bins are for paper, glass, bio water and bags are also provided for plastics and metal cans. Most of the other bins are collected on a monthly basis except the bio bin, which is collected weekly during the summer months. However, this means that you would have to have place reserved at home to keep 4 or 5 large bins out of sight. Bins are identifiable by a scanning system, weighed and you pay a tax per collection and per kg of water with the domestic bin being the most expensive, hence encouraging recycling. Bins can be left out the evening before collection and collection occurs around 7h30 am. The "big large bins" have been removed, at least in the country where I live, and your only option is to go to the directly to the waste disposal centre where disposal is free, except for the generic domestic waste.... which is weighed and charged for. stevens

just the difference in time-efficiency by collecting in bulk, rather than per bag, will increase traffic flow and indirectly benefit the economy to a multitude of the cost.

The waste collection times should be twice a day. I live in St Julians and especially in Triq Il-Mensija the rubbish situation is horrible. People leave their rubbish out few hours after the collection time and they leave black bags out even those are not collected on that day. There are loads and loads of cats on that street and they rip the bags and eat what they find. The food and other trash is all over the streets. We have also a dog and it's horrible to take him out when he tries to eat everything. And yes we clean after him as well.

Mr Local Council, instead of playing around with CCTV footages and uploading videos on Facebook, why don't you take proper practical action when residents complain and find a compromise? It's obvious that a garbage skip can solve this simple problem. Are you expecting residents to leave work at specified times to suite you?

In all fairness if it weren't for the north Africans working in Malta with a legal permit cheap labor >no doubt< the country would end up smelling like a snake pit, actually i take my hat off to the Africans they are hard working people and do a fine job for your country. as the locals are just not interested,, yet they too are migrants in my country and i dare say many many work hard and are doing fine.

Its not because they are filthy, but simply because they temporary residents who simply sleep in their appartments, so they have no reason to contribute to a better neighborhood. A permanent resident with a family is more likely to contribute. But I agree, Maltese people can be just as bad , especially many dog owners!

We can understand the frustration for many of us expats having to clean up after some irresponsible locals, In Canada things are done properly & according to the law of the land, anyone caught disposing of any house hold rubbish would be liable, but with the help of proper installed cameras as evidence, yes i know some idiot is giving the Gozitans a bad name as a dirty nation, however inside their homes they are as clean as a whistle but outside boy that is a different story for another time for my book on retiring in peaceful tranquil lovely Gozo.

We too live in the vicinity of Qala, and the situation is getting from bad to worse, we hear of many visitors and tourists turning their nose up in disgust to the smell and broken bags all over the streets. It takes foreign residents to clean up the mess as the locals are too stuck up to clean up and make the place look respectable, needless to say QALA COUNCIL we are not amused., read between the lines clean up the place. The problem is the more these local toss posts are told not to chuck rubbish bags at street corners the more they persist, hence CCTV would sort them out with a hefty FINE ! JUST ONE QUESTION, WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE GREEN WARDENS? here to-day gone 2-morrow no doubt.

Once, our local council came up with the brilliant idea that collection will be at 14:00, so asked residents to take out garbage bags from 10am onwards. So what do people that work normal office hours do ? Do they have to take vacational leave? Local councils need to be realistic imo. Also, re Swieqi lc, I think its better that residents dispose of garabage in skips, then leaving them in the middle of the streets.

The waste collection system has become too complicated. In particular, the collection of organic waste in tiny white bags is causing more mess than the small amounts collected are worth. Often I see little white bags (at least in my area at Munxar) left out by well-meaning citizens at the wrong time of day because schedules are too complex. These messy bags then lie around for the next collection a week later. Also, as I have often commented before, short term rental unit landlords should be compelled to leave clear instructions about schedules for their tenants, and if necessary deal with rubbish on departure days themselves. After all they are running a for-profit business and they should be responsible for this aspect of their commercial activity, same as catering establishments. In Gozo there is the additional problem of weekend rentals, with mostly Maltese tenants (who should know better) leaving their rubbish all over the place prior to their departure. Sadly, owners of weekend homes in Gozo sometimes behave in this abhorrent manner as well because they are reluctant to bag up their rubbish well and take it with them. It's a problem, but solutions need to be found, eg. Sunday evening waste collection in areas which benefit from weekend tourism.

Why can' they solve the problem simply like many other countries by placing big garbage bins at specific places, so that people can put their garbage bins in them without having stray dogs and cats tearing the bags up. Indeed people cannot always stick to the collection times, but that would avoid a lot of hassle - first the trucks would only have to go to certain spots, then hopefully, there would be less litter all over the place and garbage bags being blown in the middle of the road when there are strong winds. Does it really require a genius to come up with that?

Here in Swatar we have the same problem. Most of the time its these foreigners who just use their apartment to sleep and don't give a damn about the neighborhood and our laws. And since most of them go back home for the weekend, it is not the first time garbage bags are left at the corner for an entire weekend. And to make matters worse, Swatar does not even have its own local council, even though there are more residents than other localities! But hey, we need 20,000 more foreigners , as long as the developers and investors are raking in their millions, who cares about the Maltese people!

Why single out domestic waste dumpers. Get a grip of the restaurantuers who dump their business waste on the street EVERY end of business, to lie in the streets until their garbage truck comes at whatever time.. People don't and will not stand and wait for the unreliable timing of the garbage truck, they have lives to lead, children to prepare for school, jobs to attend. The garbage trucks provide a good service but it does not run to NASA timing programmes.

You are partly right, but whoever lives in swieqi is a swieqi resident and should abide by the regulations so its no excuse really. Maltese or foreign those who throw rubbish out at idd times of the day should be fined. The truth is that Swieqi and the rest of Malta suffers from a general lack of civic sense and discipline and that enforcement is basically non-existant.

Maltese people who take out their rubbish when they're not supposed to with the excuse of 'because the bag is stinking' are egoistic, spoiled, and not too intelligent. It doesn't take much thought to seal organic waste in separate bags before throwing them in the rubbish bag. Of course if they just throw remaining food into the rubbish bin, it's going to stink, but there are solutions, and no rubbish bag needs to stink - not even after 2 days in August, if you dispose of organic leftovers in an intelligent way.

That's well & good but what about the refuse and rubbish thrown all over the street corners particularly in Qala not far from the local church, i reckon the local council should get off that big fat bum and do the job they are getting paid for by the tax payers.

You are quite correct with your comment and meanwhile the vermin/cats and or stray dogs rip the bags apart. The refuse collectors have asked me to place my rubbish 50m away outside a neighbours door on a main road. I like my neighbours and they seem to like me, so why should I insult them because the refuse people are lazy ? I don't live on a narrow road or a cul-de-sac either... Once a year a road sweeper shows up expecting a Christmas tip too. Truly, unbelievable.

Frankly speaking the system sucks. We don't live anymore in past times where men would work, whilst women stay at home and can bring the garbage out just in time. In most modern families both partners work, many with shift systems or flexi hours. This makes it very difficult for many to obey garbage collection times. That is of course besides the point that having all the garbage bags even for a few hours on the road is just a disgusting sight, more like medieval times.
