Lydia Abela pushes for sustainable fashion industry in New York

Attending a recent fashion event in New York, USA, Lydia Abela highlighted the importance of sustainable and environmental awareness being at the centre of the fashion industry. 

Attending the event whilst her husband, Prime Minister of Malta Robert Abela, fulfils his duties at the 77th United Nations’ General Assembly, Lydia Abela took the opportunity to speak about how the future of fashion lies in sustainable creativity. 

Posting a statement on social media, Abela said that she wanted to focus on two very specific and important themes during her address: the social and the environmental. 

‘In the social sector, we need to continue working in a global context to improve the conditions of work, especially in the fashion industry itself.’ 

‘From the environmental aspect, we need to intensify our work to raise more awareness in our kids and the future generations about the importance of the environment of not just today, but of our future.

The latest road works achievements for 2022

The Ministry for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects revealed on social media some of the latest achievements in road works for the year 2022. 

The ministry, under current Infrastructure Minister Aaron Farrugia, rebuilt 128 new residential roads in the first 8 months of 2022 – that is from January to August. 

This translates to around 4 roads being rebuilt per week as well as 27 kilometres of better roads for the residents of various Maltese towns and villages. 

Last but not least, the work yielded 50 kilometres of new pavements being installed to ensure safer passageway for the same residents.

Men spend more time on the toilet than women…but why?

Men spend more time on the toilet than women…but why?

According to a VICE survey, 92% of men regularly spend at least 20 minutes on the toilet whereas up to 100% of women never spend longer than 10 minutes. 

According to a 2018 study by a bathroom company, a third of men in the UK spend over 7 hours a year on the toilet to ‘enjoy respite’ and ‘avoid stress’. 

Among the responses as to what men do when spending so much time on the throne, a whopping 84% said that they simply scroll through social media. 

68% are watching videos (of the ‘decent’ variety), 62% are reading the news, 49% use it to catch up to emails, 24% continue binging their favourite series and 14% open a book to read.

However, one of the most common answers was that they were in there to get some alone time. According to psychotherapist Benjamin Jackson, a large amount of men tend to perform ‘single focus mental activities’. 

These include reading the news or watching football to de-stress. 63% of the survey respondents said that they take longer in the toilet when they feel frustrated at work or at home. The toilet becomes a safe haven.
