Last year, when Frangos opened on Chatham Counterguard with its lawn terrace, white furniture and retro ashtrays I was compelled to try it out as this was very different from everything else we were currently enjoying on ‘The Strip’. I wanted it to do well especially as it was the first Portuguese restaurant in Gibraltar and, to top it off, placed in a great location with very stiff competition.
A comprehensive review of Shania Twain’s 1998 top ten hit
By Stefano Blanca Sciacaluga
I was born in the eighties. Well, I was born at the end of the eighties and properly opened my eyes and started absorbing information at the beginning of the nineties. This of course means that by the time 1998 rolled by my brain was ready to create some proper memories; and one of these memories is the stupid video for Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much”. Now, I was nine when that song came out and after hearing it for what seemed like a very long time at the time and regularly over the years, thanks to GBC and their ten-song catalogue, I was always under the impression that it must have been a number one hit, but it wasn’t. “That Don’t Impress Me Much” supposedly made it to eight in the charts, which is a great feat, but was met at first with some criticism for being a pop song from what was meant to be a country musician, eventually making her a crossover hit.
For generations, most students here in Gibraltar have been to primary and middle school before going to one of our gender segregated comprehensives. This looks like it is finally changing. But there are many challenges that our education system needs to find answers to. These range from improving the environment for students with disabilities, encouraging bilingualism, providing the resources for the most academic to achieve their potential but also opening avenues for the less academic to explore other talents, to ensuring that, for example, our classrooms are adequately heated in the winter and adequately cooled towards the summer.
