With large amounts of studying, most people like to have a musical background to help them concentrate (if you don’t, this article probably isn’t for you!) What music you pick, however, can really impact your study efficiency. For example, if you make the mistake, as I have done in the past, of having The Streets on repeat, you’ll end up writing “Don’t Mug Yourself” in the middle of your algebra notes …
Since the turn of the year, some really incredible new music has been released and I thought I’d do a little round up for you lovely people. These are the tracks you need rattling around your skulls right now, and represent the artists whose futures look very bright in 2016.
I was going to write the entire piece about Adele this week, and how she has just been confirmed as the last Glastonbury Headliner (she announced it whilst on stage at London’s O2). I had a whole monologue planned backing her for the slot.

This week Amardeep Dhillon discusses: the BME student protests at Oxford, the ongoing junior doctor strikes and Europe's poor performance at dealing with the Refugee Crisis. Don't forget as always we leave with a rather enjoyable Silver Lining
David Cameron has announced the date for a referendum on EU membership on 23rd June 2016. Following negotiations for changes to Britain’s privileges within the EU, a deal struck with EU leaders by the PM has been described as “irreversible” by Downing Street but criticized for not being “legally binding” by Michael Gove and others
We can let a light drizzle ruin our day, or we can learn to dance in the rain. We can focus on our frizzy hair and damp clothes or we can appreciate the beauty of the neon street lights glisten in the puddle.

Firstly, as a warm, well I guess a cool, welcome to all you Londoners here on Good News and Positivity, check out the brilliant new Crossrail trains that are set to speed beneath the UK capital in a couple of years. They have much needed air conditioning (hence the pun), which anyone who has spent a sweaty Friday afternoon on the Underground in July will tell you is absolutely ESSENTIAL.
