adele’s ‘30’ may not be for everyone and that’s just fine

Hurricane Adele is here and it’s been a joy having real music in our ears for the first time in a while when it comes to popular music. The Rolling In The Deep hitmaker is an anomaly as an artist, since she will drop an album, do interviews, give live performances, go on a brief tour and then disappear until it’s time for her to be in music mode again. The 30 roll-out has been one of the best traditional promotional runs in an age where many artists don’t do them anymore. In the streaming and social media age, artists will tease a song and only drop it many months later, and then when that fizzles out, drop single after single to see what sticks, and then announce an album…

out of pocket october take-home pay plummets – bankservafrica

Given Majola THE South African private sector Take-home pay showed the steepest monthly decline in October since September 2019 and also reflected little change in the typical salary of formal sector workers in the last two years, according to the latest BankservAfrica Take-home Pay Index (BTPI) BankservAfrica’s Head of Stakeholder Engagements Shergeran Naidoo said this week that the real take-home pay declined by 3.1% on a year-on-year basis last month compared to the 4.1% growth registered in September. There were a number of reasons for this fall. In October last year, more casual workers were in the process of returning to work, which resulted in the high BTPI base. In contrast, last month’s data reflected a smaller pool of payments to casual workers, which contributed to the sharp fall…
