The music industry is gearing up for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, with the nominees having been officially announced just last week. There have been ecstatic responses from fans and supporters the world over, but the one nomination that seems to be fishing in more reactions than any other is that of Korean based pop-group, BTS.
The first K-pop group to have received worldwide recognition and embark on an international tour, BTS have made history by bagging this Grammy nomination for the art and visuals of their famed album, ‘Love Yourself: Tear’. It is not only a massive breakthrough moment for the Bangtan septet, but for the Korean music scene as a whole. The album that was placed at No.1 on the 'Billboard 200' in May earlier this year, is nominated for best recording package - a
The young workforce who are trying to make a bit of extra cash end up having an anti-social Christmas.
Over 78,000 people have signed a petition to stop shops opening during Christmas and Boxing day after retail workers across the UK have complained about the stress of working during these periods.
As Christmas approaches, streets and malls become busier with shoppers from all over the world, and young people are mostly found working in these retail shops which prevent them from spending time with their families on the holidays.
Dave William, the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (USDAW), Media officer told Westminster world: "We know that boxing days are becoming popular in recent times but we don’t see any reason why these sales cannot take place some other day

London attracts young people of working age from abroad, particularly those countries that were affected by the Eurozone crisis. With the influx of arrivals in search of employment, or studies, it's little wonder Brexit is causing so much debate.

Cutting tuition fees might not be a good idea for poorer students, the government’s new social mobility tsar has claimed.
Martina Milburn, the latest chair of the Social Mobility Commission, told The Observer: “Cutting fees will certainly help a certain sector. Whether it helps the right young people, I’m not convinced.”
“There’s also evidence that if you remove tuition fees altogether, there would be a certain number of young people from particular backgrounds who wouldn’t be able to go to university at all – but if you restore something like the education maintenance allowance or a version of it, I think you would widen participation. That’s a personal view.”
Last month a government proposal suggested that students in England should be offered 2-year fast track courses to c

Children and young adult’s book markets are increasing, and according to a Writers and Artists article by Chris Kloet, editor at Walker Books, around 10,000 new children’s titles are published in the UK every year, and there is also a current vogue for “young adult” novels.
But can this be only attributed to the children and teenagers’ reading habits? Siobhan Curham, author and writing coach, said: “Young adult books blur the line between children’s and adult books because there is a big cross-over, with many adults reading them.”
What distinguishes a children's and a young adult’s book? Joshua Cartwright, who works for Wealdstone Library and also is a writer of children's books, defined it as “books with stories or information which is understandable by the age group that they a
British-Indian stand-up comedian Nish Kumar in conversation with Aamna Mohdin addresses unconscious biases that have potentially impacted his professional life.
In an interview with famed comedian Nish Kumar published earlier today, The guardian shed light on issues of racial bias and ethnical stereotypes that exist among Anglo-Indians in the UK.
Kumar took to twitter when a written piece by Keith Watson in Metro, detailing a travel show that he partook in, called him ‘Nish Patel’. He found it disconcerting as to how the error had occurred despite providing a press release about the show.
