MADISON BEER × OFFSET

Independent pop singer-songwriter Madison Beer has released her brand new single “Hurts Like Hell” featuring Offset today.

Co-written by Charli XCX and Madison, featuring Migos’ Offset, “Hurts Like Hell’’provides fans a glimpse of what’s to come from Beer’s debut album due for release in 2019.

On the new single Madison explains, “The song’s production feels really new to me — it’s got a vibe in the beat like I haven’t heard before. I love Charli XCX, so getting to work with her was really inspiring. Offset felt like the perfect fit for the track. He’s one of the most talented, professional, down to Earth artists I’ve ever worked with, and his verse absolutely kills it.”

“Hurts Like Hell” comes hot on the heels of the success of Madison’s previous single “Home With You”, which made music history when it peaked within the Top 20 of US Top 40 radio chart, making Beer the first independent female solo artist to ever do so.

Madison Beer is an independent artist breaking in a major way. Her debut EP, “As She Pleases” (which spawned “Home With You”, “Say It To My Face” and “Dead”), has notched up over 400 million combined streams since its release in February. Her Spring/ Summer 2018 headline worldwide tour sold out within minutes of going on sale, while her first ever festival performance at Lollapalooza over the summer was lauded by critics.

This year has also seen Madison make her late-night debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden; feature in Billboard’s coveted “21 Under 21” list of top musicians in 2018; guest on David Guetta’s “7”album; perform alongside Liam Gallagher at Milan fashion Week A/W 2018; grace the covers of numerous magazines worldwide (including, most recently, Flaunt magazine); launch her own clothing collection (with leading online womenswear retailer missguided); and be enlisted as the face of a Bulgari fragrance campaign. All in addition performing live to an audience of 80 million viewers at the Riot Games World Championships Event last week in celebration of her feature on K/DA’s debut track “POP/STARS” which has topped iTunes charts in over 16 territories worldwide within 72 hours.

Madison Beer – who has partnered with First Access Entertainment and is distributed through AWAL – is a fully independent artist consistently praised for her trailblazing efforts and her passion for creating music that empowers listeners. Her huge, engaged and ever growing fanbase, (evident from her 2.6 million+ followers on Twitter, and eye-popping 10. 5 million+ on Instagram), regard her as a pioneer of the ‘Girl Boss’ generation.

All eyes are on Madison as fans look to her first full length studio debut, set for release in 2019.

JAGUAR I-PACE eTROPHY

Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Completes Final Pre-Season Test 

Up to 20 I-PACE eTROPHY racecars will take to the grid at the first race on 15 December in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia

Pre-season testing for the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY championship took place this week at Rockingham, Europe’s fastest racing circuit. Previously announced entrants Katherine Legge, Bryan Sellers, Cacá Bueno, Sérgio Jimenez and Simon Evans were joined by confirmed multi-car entrants from Saudi Arabia, China and Germany, who are due to announce their team and driver details in November.

British model and racing enthusiast David Gandy also attended the test and drove the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY racecar. Each round will feature a VIP car driven by famous faces from the world of motorsport and beyond.

David Gandy said:

“This is a hugely impressive car. I was initially sceptical about electric cars, but now after driving the I-PACE and the I-PACE eTROPHY I’m a convert. The racecar is so powerful but it’s a friendly car to drive – it’s a lot of fun and holding your speed around the corners is a test of nerve. I’m already a Formula E fan but adding the element of production car racing will add something special. I’ll definitely be watching.”

Gandy, who first attended a Formula E Race in Hong Kong in 2016 has also previously raced for Jaguar in the Mille Miglia in an XK120.

The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series will be the official support race to ABB FIA Formula E from December onwards. The new championship will take place over 10 rounds in nine global cities, with up to 20 entrants competing for a prize fund in excess of £500,000.

The Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY begins on 15 December in Ad Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. Final entrants and details of where to watch the championship around the world will be announced shortly.

LIFE-SAVING TECH × JAGUAR

Audible Vehicle Alert System Developed by Jaguar to Protect Road Users

Jaguar has developed an Audible Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) for the I-PACE, to warn vulnerable road users as the electric vehicle approaches

With no engine sound, the electric Jaguar I-PACE required a new way to warn blind, visually impaired and other vulnerable road users   of its approach at low speed.

Jaguar has designed a unique Audible Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) for its first electric vehicle – developing a sound that can be heard at speeds up to 20km/h and exceeds the 56dB(A) minimum required by forthcoming European legislation for all new electric vehicles (EVs) from July 2019.

The I-PACE’s sound was tested by members of Guide Dogs for the Blind, the UK’s leading charity for people affected by sight loss, as part of the testing undertaken by Jaguar. It also marks the start of an on-going relationship between the two organisations.

Jaguar’s engineers worked for four years to develop a soundtrack that is audible yet discreet and cannot be heard from inside the vehicle. Initial attempts to create a noise inspired by the sound of sci-fi spacecraft had to be shelved after pedestrians reacted by looking up to the sky, rather than at the road, as the vehicle approached.

Engineers tested sounds in a number of environments, including an anechoic chamber (specialist echo-free room) and various urban scenarios, before settling on the final sound for the I-PACE. It is emitted from a speaker located behind the front grille, can be heard in every direction and cannot be disengaged.

The alert increases in pitch and volume in line with the speed of the vehicle and, when in reverse, is accompanied by an additional tone that indicates the change in direction. AVAS is not required at higher speeds as there is sufficient wind and tyre noise for pedestrians to hear the zero-emissions vehicle approaching.

Iain Suffield, Jaguar NVH Technical Specialist, said:

“The absence of traditional engine noise from electric vehicles creates a problem for vulnerable pedestrians, such as the blind or visually impaired. This is especially true at low speeds in town centres and car parks. We developed the Audible Vehicle Alert System for the I-PACE to ensure the safety of all road users. Our potentially life-saving technology cannot be switched off and as the leading charity for people with sight loss, we are pleased to have the support of Guide Dogs to ensure real people are at the heart of our product testing.”

ARKONIK DEFENDER

NEW ARKONIK DEFENDER: A Timeless Classic Enhanced for Adventure

Every inch of this D110 is enhanced for adventure. At first glance, this station wagon emanates a classic look with Fungus green bodywork, satin black chequer plate and traditional steels.

The OEM steering wheel, powerful V8 engine and BFGoodrich® AT tyres are perfectly suited to provide superior leverage and handling.

The designer of this truck knows Defenders inside and out and plans to use it for what it was built for. Aided by a NAS exterior roll cage and WARN® winch, this station wagon will hold its own on the Florida trails, just like its Native American namesake.

Treatment of Afghan Interpreters

Approximately one month, the Director of Faith Matters, Fiyaz Mughal, highlighted the plight of Afghan Interpreter, Mohammed Nabi, and how he was sleeping rough on the streets of Athens. Nabi’s case was initially documented and he was assisted by Jess Webster, who works with refugees in Greece.

Having heard of the case, the petition by the Director of Faith Matters, has now reached over 116,000 signatories within 5 weeks. It is now being backed by the Sun on Sunday and has also been highlighted by the Daily Mail and the Metro. Yet, the Government have made no headway in addressing this issue. There is therefore a groundswell of public opinion backing Nabi’s case, yet the politicians refuse to even acknowledge this case.

Mohammed Nabi worked for ISAF and British forces in Afghanistan between 2008-2011. He has received numerous commendations for his work with British Forces such as from the 1st Battalion of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment. He was instrumental in interpreting Taliban commands in real time when in the field with British soldiers and thereby he was key to tracking Taliban troop movements and attack points against British soldiers.

Speaking to Mughal in Athens he said that:
“My role was to work with commanding officers and I was the bridge between Afghan forces and British commanding officers. When officers from the British army went to speak to village elders, I was with them. There was an unwritten command that Taliban leaders gave to their forces to kill Afghan Interpreters first so that British and ISAF forces would be blind in the field. I was at risk of suicide bombers in such situations in villages as they tried to target British commanding officers and their interpreters”.

Nabi left working with the British armed forces after 1 year, (in 2009), because of threats from senior Afghan commanders made against his family and against him. He rejoined ISAF and British forces within 3 months of leaving since his skills were suited to armed forces work and he could not find other work and served again as an Afghan interpreter until 2011.

In 2016, an attempted kidnap against him failed and ‘night knocks’ against his front door raised threat levels against him and he fled on foot through Iran and into Turkey where he lounged for 18 months with no assistance from aid agencies who were assisting families. They were therefore not focused on assisting young single men.

Repeated attempts to highlight his case and the threat to his four children and wife failed in Turkey and he was left destitute and penniless, where he took up shepherding for basic subsistence. Each month though, saw the Taliban makes gains and come closer to his village and Nabi said that the policy of the Taliban to the children of people who assisted ISAF forces was to call them ‘sons of snakes, who were snakes themselves’. In other words, the children of Afghan interpreters were at serious of attack.

In 2016, to highlight his case he left Turkey and ended up being arrested in Greece and jailed. He was eventually released and claimed asylum though ended up penniless sleeping on a park bench in Athens where the Director of Faith Matters met up with him.

Speaking about the plight of Afghan Interpreters and in particular Nabi’s case, Fiyaz Mughal OBE, who developed the petition and who worked with the Sun on Sunday to highlight his case, said:

“Nabi has been denied entry into the UK and given no assistance when he approached UK Government agencies. How can this be right when he saw Afghan colleagues die in battle and Nabi was there saving British lives by interpreting Taliban commands whilst rounds went over his head. The only possessions he has are the plastic-coated commendations from officers because of his work in the field. It is disgusting the way that this man has been treated.

“The treatment of Afghan interpreters is a national disgrace and what the petition and the support from national newspapers shows is that the public care, whilst politicians have shown little courage in addressing this matter. I believe that anyone who has served more than a year in Afghanistan supporting our armed forces and who can show that their lives are in danger because of their work, must be let in. We relied on them to keep our armed forces safe, and now they need our help. This national disgrace must end and I will keep speaking out”.

SG Lewis Releases “Hurting”

Today songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis share his new single “Hurting”featuring internationally acclaimed British songstress AlunaGeorge. The track marks the first single from Dark; the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept albumDusk, Dark, Dawn.

Check out “Hurting” Here!

SG Lewis scores percussive basslines alongside arpeggiated synth melodies to accompany AlunaGeorge’s honeyed vocals as she pines after lost love. The resultant track is a dream-worthy collaboration ready for any dance floor.

Speaking on the track, SG says “Aluna and I met for the first time in LA earlier this year, and I was talking to her about the album concept, and in particular, Dark. Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her! After we ate burritos and hung out, we made “Hurting” super quickly – the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production.”

“Hurting” is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. His recent single, “Better” featuring Clairo instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam.” After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a massive US headline tour kicking off at Washington DC’s Union Stage on September 25th and making stops atBrooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.

This year, SG Lewis began releasing music from his ambitious three-part album Dusk, Dark, Dawn. In his first Phase, Dusk, SG imagined the trajectory of one night out in club music and is a loving tribute to club and youth culture. Referencing a wide breadth of styles and genres, Dusk used disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Now in Phase 2, Dark uses heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night.

UK Households Spending More Than They Earn

  • UK cost of living for a four-person family is £60,000 per year – 103 per cent of average household income
  • UK housing and utility costs have risen by 13 per cent1
  • The global study found the most affordable expat country for families is Sweden

Today, new research by leading price comparison website MoneySuperMarket reveals that the UK is the most expensive location to raise a family. The running costs associated with a four-person family in the UK exceeded those of Spain, USA, Germany and Sweden due to the high costs of rent, utility bills and groceries2.

The data is based on the average monthly cost of property, utility bills and grocery shopping for a family with two children in 10 locations. These locations are some of the most popular destinations for the British public to emigrate to. MoneySuperMarket also ranked the costs against the countries’ average full time salary, to reveal the percentage of salary two working adults must put towards household expenses. In the UK, the average cost of a four-person family is more than twice the combined total of two adults’ salaries4.

Popular expat destinations with lower living costs

With lower utility bills (£94.41 per month), heavily subsidised pre-school costs (£230.34) and a standard average monthly rent of £1,149.40, Sweden is the only country analysed where a single parent can comfortably afford to have two children, working out as 87 per cent of the average working salary5. Based on two adults with two children it’s even more affordable, eating into less than half (43 per cent) of the combined salaries.

The full ranking of the affordable global cities to raise a family, including a breakdown of all metrics, can be seen below:

Global cost of raising a four-person family

Changing costs over time

On average, the weekly food shop has lowered in price for families over the last 16 years, from £236 to £232. However, spending on both housing and utilities, and household goods and services, has increased by 11 per cent overall. In 2001, the average monthly cost of housing and utilities per person in the UK was £277.77, but by 2017 this figure had risen by 13 per cent to £314.82. Due to these rises, the cost of raising a family in the UK has become more expensive.
