Why Ireland is bringing back COVID-19 restrictions

Published

on

As much of Europe battles an ongoing Covid surge, the Republic of Ireland will re-impose pandemic restrictions

Ireland’s PM says the “advice is now that everyone should work from home unless it is absolutely necessary”.

Additionally, bars, restaurants and nightclubs will be required to close their doors at midnight in a bid to stop excessive movement.

The PM also warns that if the number of Covid infections continues to grow at the current rate, “no health system will be able to cope”.

Close contacts of confirmed Covid-19 cases who are fully vaccinated and showing little-to-no symptoms will need to restrict their movement and receive three negative test results over five days.

Covid-19 vaccination passes will also be required for entry to cinemas and theatres but not for gyms and hairdressers.

However, there is some good news, with the nations’ economy able to stay largely open and functioning as a result of a successful vaccination rollout program.

As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”

AI creates a song imitating Drake and The Weeknd

Published

A big surprise for music fans when they heard a new song featuring Drake and The Weeknd. But there’s a catch!

The viral song was created by artificial intelligence.

 
A new song that sounds like Drake and The Weeknd has gone viral, but it was created by artificial intelligence.

Now, there’s a crusade against AI music.

The song,“Heart on My Sleeve”was created by artificial intelligence and quickly racked up millions of views on TikTok, Spotify, and YouTube.

Record label, Universal Music Group (UMG) is not happy about the song that used AI-generated vocals to simulate pop music artists Drake Graham and The Weeknd.

UMG flexed their muscle and forced the song featuring some of its biggest artists to be removed from Spotify and TikTok.

According to reports, UMG is taking it a step further and sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streamers requesting they block AI tools from training their models on the melodies and lyrics of UMG artists.
