Spotify removes shuffle from default thanks to Adele

Music streaming giant Spotify removed the shuffle option from all of Adele’s albums on the platform, including ’30’. For the singer, after a six year hiatus, it was crucial that fans listen to the songs on her newly released album in order. She therefore asked the music platform for its help. 

Posting to Twitter, Adele explained how her only request for the new album’s launch was that Spotify remove the shuffle from default option. ‘This was the only request I had in our ever changing industry’ she said.The singer continued to explain that ‘we don’t create albums with so much care and thought into our track listing for no reason. Our art tells a story and our stories should be listened to as we intended. 

Spotify responded with a Tweet, simply stating ‘Anything for you’. Some thought that the singer had taken away the shuffle option forever, but this isn’t the case at all. Gizmodo reviewed other artist’s albums on the platform (Ed Sheeran, BTS, etc) and found that people can still activate the shuffle option in the Spotify player while playing an individual song from an album.

Electric car charging points to be made compulsory in new UK buildings

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that Britain will be making electric car chargers compulsory for all new buildings in England in 2022. As the UK switches away from high polluting vehicles, Johnson told business leaders that he will legislate to compel charing points in new homes, supermarkets and workplaces across the country. 

This new legislation will create 145,000 new charging points per year and apply to major renovation projects. This initiative is also part of the move towards banning new sales of diesel and petrol cars in the UK from 2030, as well as reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050. 

Having just returned from the COP26 summit, Johnson revealed how he wants Britain to lead global efforts to transition to net zero in order to assist the economy’s recovery from the COVID-19 impact. ‘We have to use our massive investment in science and technology and we have to raise our productivity and then we have to get out your way’ said Johnson. ‘We have to adapt our economy to the green industrial revolution.’

Suffering from bloating, stomach pain or headaches? THIS could be the reason

 - Food - Nov 22 SHARE ON:

Beyond eating to live, we also live to eat. Food does not only provide nourishment for the body but also for the mind, serving as a source of strength, warmth and comfort. That is why knowing what your body can and cannot accept will not only prevent pain and discomfort but benefit your health and state of mental wellbeing in the long term, allowing you to create a diet which allows you to feel healthy, strong and productive.

We have seen a growing trend of people showing adverse reactions to different foods in their diet. Food intolerances refer to the difficulty in digesting certain foods. The food particles that enter the bloodstream without being properly digested are perceived by the immune system as foreign invaders and trigger adverse reactions. Although not life-threatening like food allergies, food intolerances should never be underestimated as their impact on sufferers can be significant and severely impact the ability to live normal healthy lives. 

Food intolerances may produce a variety of symptoms including lethargy, bloating, stomach pain, weight control problems and headaches. So if you suffer from any of the above without a particular explanation, you may be suffering from intolerance without even knowing it. That’s why a food intolerance test is beneficial. Being intolerant does not necessarily mean that you will have to turn your life upside down but explore the idea of certain substitutes and foods such as low-histamine foods.

The symptoms of food intolerances can be delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason, it is often difficult to identify what the problematic foods are. The compelling need to identify these food intolerances encouraged Health & Beauty by Brown’s to offer a NEW Food Intolerance Test that covers 57 of the most common food intolerances such as dairy intolerance, nut intolerance, meat intolerance and much more. All of which can be discovered just one drop of finger-prick blood.

So if you want to level up, book yourself a food intolerance test and allow yourself to get the best out of food every single day.

Send this to someone who has been experiencing symptoms of food intolerance.

Malta’s unemployment rate continues to drop compared to previous years

The number of persons registering for work in October stood at 1,254 and dropped by 1,860 when compared to the same month last year. Jobsplus informed The Malta Independent that for October 2021, a year-on-year decrease of around 1,750 was recorded as people registered under Part I. An additional drop of 110 persons registering under Part II of the unemployment register was recorded. 

Part I registrations involve people who left school, re-entrants into the job market or those who were made redundant by their former employers. Part II registrations are workers who have been dismissed from work due to disciplinary action, left of their own free will, refused work/training opportunities or were struck off the register following Law Enforcement inspections. 

Registered unemployment levels saw a decrease across all groups and genders. A drop was also noted among those who were registering for work for more than one year. The number of persons with a disability who registered for work increased by 5, reaching 267 persons. Males account for 74.9% of total registrants with disability.
