This might be the dream job of many as luxury bed company called Crafted Beds is looking for a mattress tester. The company is currently accepting applications for someone to lie down and work a full 37.5 work week. 

Your job will be to test different mattresses each week, taking notes, making assessments and reporting to the company just how comfortable these mattresses are. You can sleep, watch Netflix, read a good book or even whip up a bowl of cereal to have on your comfy bed. And you’ll be making cash just kicking back and relaxing.

The role was created by the company to ensure that customers are getting the best mattress possible. And hey, if that means paying someone to just chill on a mattress all day, no one’s recalling complaining. Let’s just hope that the mattresses actually are comfortable – otherwise you’d be going away with money and a wrecked back.

Study reports third of prisoners had sexually transmitted infections

Study reports third of prisoners had sexually transmitted infections
Oct 17 2021 Share

A new study into Corradino Correctional Facility has revealed that a third of the inmates have had sexually transmitted infections. The study was carried out between 2017 and 2019, only to be published in this month’s journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology. According to the study, 206 inmates out of a total 667 prisoners tested positive for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). More than a third of them were males aged between 14 and 72, with only 27% of them not having been sexually active in the six months prior to the test. 

31% of those had sex with casual partners whereas 43% had not used contraceptives for intercourse. With three quarters admitting to drug use, the most common STI reported was HPV (16.5%), followed by syphilis (5.8%) and genital dermatoses (9.2%). Hepatitis C boomed at 25%. The study found that there needed to be far more collaboration between sexual health clinics and the prison to prevent such infections from spreading.

Following an almost 17-month long intermission of the entire arts and culture scene due to COVID-19, the Malta Tourism Authority are proudly announcing the return of Cirque du Soleil in Malta for November and December. Visit Malta and the world leading producer of high-quality entertainment are also announcing the opening of a brand new production created exclusively for Malta. The production, called FIERI, will be presented in Malta’s capital starting November 25. 

Diane Quinn, Cirque du Soleil’s COO expressed their delight in returning to Malta, which she described as a country steeped in history. Looking to pay tribute to ‘this resilient nation and its people, Quinn said how ‘now more than ever in our absurd world, Cirque due Soleil’s power to bring joy and hope you our audiences is not only welcome but necessary.’ 

On his part, Minister for Tourism and Consumer Protection Clayton Bartolo said that FIERI will be ‘another opportunity to showcase Malta’s credentials in the cultural and entertainment sector […] Events of such a calibre fall under our ultimate goal – that of making Malta a home of tourism and excellence for the years to come.’ 

Cirque du Soleil thrillingly announced that Malta – a destination of choice in Europe – will be the first European country to host a new Cirque du Soleil event post lockdown. The event will feature the signature style acrobatics and visual artistry the group is known for, whilst also highlighting Malta’s cultural diversity and history. Johann Buttigieg, CEO of the Malta Tourism Authority highlighted how last time the majestic auditorium of the Mediterranean Conference Centre welcomed audiences for musical productions was March 8th, 2020. After countless sacrifices, the new production will revitalise all that we have missed so dearly as we return to normality.

Lamin Jaiteh officially released from hospital

Lamin Jaiteh officially released from hospital
Oct 17 2021 Share

Lamin Jaiteh, the migrant worker who was dumped on the side of a road by his boss after suffering construction site injures, has been discharged from hospital. He has returned back home, with Caroline Galea telling Times of Malta that he was released on Friday. However, she expressed that they are unsure whether he will ever be fit for construction work again, as the 32-year-old from Gambia was treated for spinal and arm injuries at Mater Dei. 

Posting to social media, Galea thanked many people and organisations who helped in assisting Jaiteh, with the fundraiser being a massive success. She described Jaiteh as one of the calmest people she has ever met – a thoughtful, well spoken person with a laugh which lights up the room. Galea revealed that they have organised for a carer to tend to him as he recovers. She says that the focus now is on Jaiteh getting better but also on ensuring that this traumatic experience doesn’t just disappear. 

She finished up her post by stating that despite supporting Jaiteh at this point in time, ‘his is not an isolated event. This has been going on for all too long and enough is enough.’ With more demonstrations being organised in support of Jaiteh and all the people impacted by such travesties, it’s immensely heartwarming to see a smiling Jaiteh back on his feet.
