You Can Win A Six Hour Space Trip With Oreo’s New Space Dunks

You Can Win A Six Hour Space Trip With Oreo's New Space Dunks
Jan 25 2024 Share

Oreo started off the new year with a bold step of coming out with a new colourful limited-edition flavour inspired by the cosmic colours of the galaxy.

Lift off date of January 23rd Oreo launched their new flavour called Space Dunk. Each cookie is stuffed with layers of blue and pink “cosmic crème” with a marshmallow flavour, and with a surprise of popping candy mixed inside keeping you at the edge of your seat.


The new Space Dunk cookies don’t just feature a whole “otherworldly” flavour but the biscuit itself consists of five never-before-seen galactic embossments too.

Furthermore, the company also claims that there is a small cut out in the cookie itself allowing fans to see the colourful cream behind the outer shell. As the brand’s websites states, the galactic cutout designs consist of a Telescope, Astronaut, Stargaze, Shooting Star and Rocket.

If you were wondering where Oreo came up with the idea of settling for this out of world concept, they did so by partnering with Space Perspective – the world’s first carbon-neutral spaceflight experience company, which aims to make space travel accessible for all.

Increase Of Over 10,000 Foreign Workers In 8 Months
Jan 25 2024 Share

As of August 2023, Malta employed a total of 107,406 foreign workers, marking a significant increase of 10,436 international employees in just eight months, according to information presented in Parliament. 

The revelation came in response to a parliamentary question posed by Bernice Bonello of the PN to Finance and Employment Minister Clyde Caruana, seeking data on foreign workers over the past 13 years and their respective industries.

Comparing figures, in December 2022, Malta had 96,970 foreign workers, showing a substantial growth of over 25% from the previous year when 76,395 foreigners were employed. 

Administrative and Support Service Activities led in August 2023 with 16,792 foreign workers, an increase from 15,977 eight months earlier. 

The Accommodation and Food Service Activities Industry followed closely with 15,200 workers, up by approximately 2,000 from the previous eight months. Other notable sectors employing foreign workers included Construction (10,581), Repairs of Motor Vehicles and Motorcycles (10,366), Scientific and Technical Activities, Arts and Entertainment, and Manufacturing.

The data reflects a substantial rise in foreign workers in Malta over the years, with the total number increasing by 95,068 from 2011 to 2023, when the count was 12,338.

US Scientist Suggests Putting Salt In Tea

US Scientist Suggests Putting Salt In Tea
Jan 25 2024 Share

Since we’re ruining pizza, why not ruin tea too?

The British, renowned for their tea-making expertise with an estimated 100 million cups consumed daily, face an unconventional suggestion from US-based scientist Prof Michelle Francl. 

She claims to have uncovered the secret to a perfect cuppa, which initially baffles many Brits – adding salt. Francl’s research, causing a stir in the UK, prompted a diplomatic intervention from the US Embassy, clarifying that salt in tea is not official US policy. 

Francl, a chemistry professor, explains her findings from eighth-century Chinese manuscripts, revealing salt’s role as a bitterness blocker in tea. Though her research drew skepticism, she encourages an open-minded approach, documented in her book “Steeped: The Chemistry of Tea.” 

Francl recommends using loose leaves, stirring constantly, and adding lemon juice to eliminate surface “scum.” She advises against microwaving tea, prevalent in the US, highlighting Americans’ poor tea-making habits.

As British-American tea relations unfold, the US embassy insists on microwaving, while the UK Cabinet Office insists on kettle usage, exemplifying the cultural divergence in tea preparation methods. Francl appreciates the UK’s tea culture and emphasises the importance of experimentation for the perfect cup.
