Study claims Amber Heard has most beautiful face in the world

Study claims Amber Heard has most beautiful face in the world
Jun 20 2022 Share

Amber Heard’s face has been deemed the most beautiful in the world, says a scientific study. The actress, who has been in the headlines thanks to the defamation case with Johnny Depp, had a special mapping deem her face the closest to a perfect face. 

The ‘technique’ sees various features of the face and their distance, measured and analysed. These include eyes, noses, lips and even facial shape. The calculations then apparently reveal how close a face is to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi. 

Heard’s face was examined back in 2016 and deemed closest to Phi, which is set at 1.618, by a factor of 91.85%. The doctor running the test decided to run it on some of the world’s most beautiful women. 

He was quoted in saying that the Greeks discovered that the ratio occurs everywhere in nature. ‘Thousands of years it has been thought to hold the secret formula of the world’s most beautiful faces.’ 

According to the hypothesis, Scarlett Johansson had the perfect eyes and Kim Kardashian had the best eyebrows, followed by Selena Gomez following at a close second.

Second invitation for booster shots for over-65s issued due to case rise

Second invitation for booster shots for over-65s issued due to case rise
Jun 20 2022 Share

Local health authorities are set to issue out new invitations the coming week for those aged 65 and over who missed out on their first appointment for the second booster dose. 

Health minister Chris Fearne tweeted out on Monday saying that the omicron variant driven rise in community COVID transmission underlines the importance of maintaining high levels of immunity. 

The administration of the second booster started early in April, rolling it out to immunocompromised people and those aged over 80. 

This comes as the number of new COVID-19 cases soared to 315 on Sunday, which is the highest since the middle of April. Deaths due to virus have remained low, with an average of one person dying every two days in the past week. 

Times of Malta had reported last week that the hospitalisation rate tripled from 2.3 per 100,000 patients to 6.9 per 100,000. This was revealed by a weekly review conducted by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). 

On Friday, there were 50 hospital patients who tested positive for the virus, half of whom are non-symptomatic. Three were being treated in the ITU, with the average age being that of 66. 

Figures also showed that just over 1,000 tests carried out daily, the positivity rate had risen to around 20%, which is one in every five. This does not include people testing positive via home kits.

Study pin-points specific age when hangovers become the worst ever

Study pin-points specific age when hangovers become the worst ever
Jun 20 2022 Share

Picture it: you haven’t had a drink in a while and you’re in your thirties. Your friends invite you out for a long overdue party and you chug one too many tequilas… You wake up, and you want your head to explode. 

A new study has claimed to have pin-pointed at which age hangovers, even from just one glass of wine, become a complete nightmare the day after.

As the body’s ability to deal with alcohol gets worse and worse with age, it is allegedly a specific age in one’s 30s when the hangovers start doing some serious damage. And the (un)lucky number is 34. 

According to a survey of 2,000 people aged from 18 to 65 commissioned by greeting card company Thortful, 34 was the age at which respondents started to really feel the alcohol sting. Hangovers start to last up to two days following this age, the study claimed. 

However unsurprisingly, it is only until the age of 37 that people start to realise that they have hit their limit. At 38, the fear of being hungover starts to hit even more, with people reporting getting drunk after two drinks. 

One of the doctors explained that hangovers are likely to worsen with age because the activity of the key enzymes involved in alcohol breakdown become less efficient with age.
