British Airways pairs music and menus to make airplane food taste better with Lily Allen, Paolo Nutini and Coldplay playlist

first_imgFoodies and music fans will enjoy British Airways’ latest efforts to make the experience of flying a little less painful.After its seven-hour train film to settle sleepless passengers, as well as its “happiness blanket”, comes the “Sound Bite”. That’s the pairing of music with food menus in a way that is designed to improve the taste of your dinner at 35,000 feet.Researchers at Oxford University have drawn upon a phenomenon known as “sonic seasoning” where listening to certain sounds changes the way you experience the food you’re eating or wine you’re drinking.According to BA chef Mark Tazzioli, being at such a high altitude reduces passengers’ abilities to taste by 30 per cent. So in addition to using umami-rich ingredients in its meals, the airline is now offering travellers a soundtrack to complement them.Coffee goes particularly well with Plácido Domingo’s Nessun Dorma from Turandot, as the Tenor’s lower tones are suited to the bitterness of the coffee, for example.The question is, do you choose the song that suits the food you’re eating, or the food that matches your favourite song?The playlist is available on BA’s long-haul flights from November, but if you don’t have a journey planned and want to test it out on the ground, here they are in the form of a Spotify playlist, with the menu to pair them with.StarterScottish salmonPaolo Nutini- Scream (funk my life up)Scottish musicians can enhance the provenance of Scottish foodsSavoury starterAnthony and the Johnsons- Crazy in loveorLouis Armstrong and Duke Ellington – AzaleaLow tones complement savoury startersBreakfastFull EnglishJohnny Marr, New town velocityBritish music should be paired with British foodMainBritish classicLily Allen, Somewhere only we knowPiano notes can enhance the sensation of sweet and bitter tastes.orColdplay- A sky full of starsBritish music should be paired with British foodRoast dinnerDebussy- Claire De LuneClassical music is suitable for meals such as Sunday lunch.

After the sale fell through 18 months ago, Lloyds rebranded the branches as TSB and floated them off as a standalone bank.One rival bidder for the branches, Lord Levene, had argued the Co-op Bank was chosen by Lloyds for political reasons, rather than commercial ones. But the MPs dismissed this, putting chancellor George Osborne in the clear.“Each of the backstops – Co-op Bank itself, KPMG as its auditor, and the FSA as its regulator – failed to uncover the bank’s capital shortfall until it was too late. Each had a hand in this sorry tale,” said the report. “But by far the biggest responsibility lies with the Co-op Bank leadership.” last_img read more

George Osborne challenges Ed Balls to say sorry over HSBC Swiss tax evasion scandal

first_imgChancellor George Osborne hit back at Labour over HSBC’s Swiss private bank yesterday, arguing that the wrongdoing took place and the taxman received the leaked documents under Labour, not the Tories, and Lord Green was given an advisory job by Gordon Brown.It comes after a fortnight of Labour accusing Osborne of failing to act on the tax evasion data, and appointing ex-HSBC boss Green to a plum ministerial post.In an urgent question in parliament, Ed Balls said Osborne had “finally been dragged to the house to answer questions,” and accused the chancellor of “sweeping these issues under the carpet.”But Osborne turned the row back on Ed Balls, arguing: “Every single alleged offence happened when Labour was in government.”Osborne then called on Balls “to express some humility and contrition” over the scandal. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity WeekForbesThese 10 Colleges Have Produced The Most Billionaire AlumniForbeszenherald.com20 Rules Genghis Khan’s Army Had To Live Byzenherald.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesComedyAbandoned Submarines Floating Around the WorldComedyGameday NewsNBA Wife Turns Heads Wherever She GoesGameday NewsNoteableyKirstie Alley Is So Skinny Now And Looks Like A BarbieNoteableyTheFashionBallPrince Harry Admits Meghan Markle May Not Be The OneTheFashionBall whatsapp Share whatsapp Express KCS center_img Monday 23 February 2015 9:12 pm George Osborne challenges Ed Balls to say sorry over HSBC Swiss tax evasion scandal Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

I promise you this – I will not short change the taxpayer on Lloyds and RBS. last_img read more

David Cameron says he will stop the welfare merry-go-round

first_imgMonday 22 June 2015 9:02 pm Express KCS whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Prime Minister David Cameron has vowed to end what he called the “ridiculous merry-go-round” of taxing low earners only to give them generous welfare handouts. Speaking at a school in Cheshire, the Prime Minister said yesterday: “We need to move from a low wage, high tax, high welfare society to a higher wage, lower tax, lower welfare society.” Cameron’s comments came just one day after chancellor George Osborne and work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith announced their intention to push ahead with plans to cut £12bn a year in welfare spending. Osborne said on Sunday the government would deliver on its campaign promise to reduce the benefit cap from £26,000 to £23,000, adding that further details about changes to in-work benefits would come in the summer budget next month. The opposition attacked the government’s positions yesterday, with shadow chancellor Chris Leslie demanding the PM specify the exact cuts he is proposing, saying he “concealed his proposals from public view throughout the election campaign”. “It is time for him to spell them out and let people judge whether or not they are fair,” Leslie said.  More From Our Partners Florida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com David Cameron says he will stop the welfare merry-go-round Share Tags: David Cameron Peoplelast_img read more
