Love Islanders are using sex codes: here's what they could mean

So everyone got confused after Nicola and Dale re-emerged from their hideaway and the former used the term ‘manicure’ for what they did in the isolated room. 

When asked by the other girls as to what happened, Nicola responded by saying: ‘We didn’t do anything. It was just a manicure and that’s it’, before trailing off into a giggle.

Well, if the foreign editions of Love Island are anything to go by, these terms are used by the Islanders to refer to anything frisky going on between them without using the actual terminology. 

Nicola here seems to be using the 2022 Love Island sex codes, with manicure referring to either a handjob or fingering, depending on who is giving said manicure.

As the show goes on, you will very likely hear more such terms, so… A pipette was used to refer to the penis, whereas a blow dry means…well, you can probably figure out what means by yourself.

Then there was the ‘beauty salon’, which, when a contestant says that it is open, it means that sexual acts are occurring between the couple using the term. 

This use of code is quite established in Love Island lore, but it is unclear whether the islanders are using code because they aren’t allowed to actually say the words or because they want to keep it entertaining. Anyways, keep your ears attuned for any new codes that might drop.

Collaboration agreement with the Faculty of Laws to make a compendium of laws that regulate construction

A collaboration agreement was signed between the Ministry for Public Works and Planning and the University of Malta to consolidate construction laws in Malta.

The signing of the agreement was presided by the Minister for Public Works and Planning Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi and the Minister for Education, Sport, Youth, Research, and Innovation Clifton Grima.

This MoU will establish a collaborative effort between the Ministry for Public Works and Planning, and the Faculty of Laws at the University of Malta with the intention to work closely on matters relating to the regulation of the construction industry.

The Faculty of Laws will be hiring students who are currently studying law at a Masters’ Level. 

Under the supervision of their lecturers, they will identify all the laws that in one way or another are connected to the Building and Construction Authority and see if the laws affecting the matters of the Building and Construction Authority are compatible with other existing general laws such as the Code of Police Laws, the -Civil Code and the Criminal Code.

Where a lack of compatibility is found, the Faculty of Laws will put forward suggestions on the changes that are necessary so that the laws are more reflective of today’s realities.

The Minister for Public Works and Planning Stefan Zrinzo Azzopardi said that through this agreement we will not only be increasing the necessary legal knowledge in this sector. It will also serve as an opportunity to prepare the legal professionals of tomorrow for the current realities of the construction industry. 

While reminding that the Government is determined to use every available resource to carry out its work, he said that today’s agreement will be beneficial for society in order to pave the way for high quality construction industry.

The Minister for Education, Sport, Youth, Research and Innovation Clifton Grima spoke about the importance of students who are continuing their studies engage in practice apart from academic knowledge. 

He said that through this agreement, more University students will not only obtain this practice, but through it they are making a valuable contribution to society. 

This will be done because these students will be involved in a project, not only essential and important for our country, but also a project that will help them in their studies. Above all, a project that should lead to improving the country’s laws.

Meanwhile, the rector of the University of Malta, Professor Alfred J Vella reiterated in his speech that through such collaboration, the University of Malta will be in a position to actively assist the Ministry in its mission as related to the construction industry. We look forward to the outcome of this agreement and hope to have more useful collaborations of the sort in the future.

The agreement was signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry for Public Works and Planning, Mr. Carlos Tabone, the Rector of the University of Malta, Professor Alfred J Vella and the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Dr. Ivan Mifsud.

Over 80 residents’ groups, student and cultural organisations endorse Saturday protest

Over 80 groups, including residents’ organisations from all over Malta and Gozo, have endorsed an upcoming protest calling for environmental and planning reform. The list of endorsing groups can be viewed here: https://xebbajtuna.org/#endorsements

Saturday’s protest, titled Xebbajtuna! Bidla fl-Ambjent u l-Ippjanar ISSA!, is being organised in the context of widespread public outrage on several environmental and planning decisions across Malta and Gozo.

The endorsing organisations span various sectors, including student organisations, academics, animal welfare organisations, cultural groups, religious organisations, workers’ groups, human rights’ NGOs, farmers’ rights groups and even a childcare centre.

They also include residents’ groups from all over Malta and Gozo, spanning from Marsaskala to Qormi, Mġarr to Nadur. 256 academics at the University of Malta have also endorsed Saturday’s protest. In a statement, the organisers said it is clear that rampant and unbridled construction has upset everyone.

“People across Malta are fed up with the reckless state of our planning institutions, regardless of their background,” the organisers said. “This Saturday, people will gather at the Triton Fountain in a rallying cry for our authorities to listen to our demands, to improve Malta’s conditions for us and for our children,” they added.

The groups are demanding a change in planning policies, radical reform in environment, planning and lands institutions, and a shift to an economic model that focuses on quality of life instead of endless economic growth.

The organisers invite people to join them tomorrow Thursday 25th May for placard-making in preparation for Saturday’s protest. The activity is taking place at 67, Strait Street, Valletta from 6 pm onwards. The national protest is on Saturday at 10.30am starting from Triton Fountain. It is being organised by eight organisations: Moviment Graffitti, Friends of the Earth Malta, Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar, Din l-Art Ħelwa, Nature Trust Malta, Għawdix, BirdLife Malta and Ramblers’ Association
