Another survey. This is about figuring out which accent is the most annoying in the UK. To find the winner 2000 people listened to recordings of people speaking in different accents until they couldn’t stand it anymore.
According to the survey, the least annoying of all is Geordie, the participants in the survey were able to listen to it for over 4 minutes. In second place we have normal English without accents, again the average is over 4 minutes. The accent of Glasgow follows, in fourth place the accent from Yorkshire and in fifth that of Liverpool.
For the first five annoying accents we have Birmingham in fifth place, that of South Wales in fourth place, the Essex accent in third place, Queen’s English in second place. While the most annoying accents in the whole of the UK would be: The London accent! On average the participants could only listen to this accent for only 58 seconds.
What are the most popular places in the UK?
Here we go again … another survey.

Kew Gardens which tops the charts as the happiest place in the UK, around 12% of Britons feel at home in this botanical garden and missed it a lot during lockdown.
The Eden Project in Cornwall ranks second together with Snowdonia National Park in Wales. Among the top ten we have the Natural History Museum in London , the British Museum , the Roman Baths , the London Zoo and Loch Lomond.

Picasso painting sold for over 100 million dollars
Woman sitting by a window (Marie-Thérèse)
The painting ‘ Woman Seated by a Window (Marie-Thérèse) ‘by Pablo Picasso was sold yesterday for 103, $ 4 million during an auction organized by Christie’s, in New York City. The canvas of 1, 46 x 1, 14 meters, painted in 1932, was sold to 90 million dollars and came to 103, 4 million after a battle of over 19 minutes between collectors. The work, which represents Picasso’s lover and muse, Marie-Thérèse Walter, nearly doubled the amount of the initial estimate provided by Christie’s, i.e. 55 Million dollars.
The woman in the painting is a representation of the artist’s mistress, Marie-Thérèse Walter. Picasso painted her sitting in front of a window wearing a red dress with her long dark hair down and reaching down to her waist.
Marie-Thérèse Walter was an artist herself, but she always had to work as an assistant to make ends meet. She was also the person who introduced Picasso to French art critic Louis Vauxcelles, which led to his becoming known internationally and eventually turning from painting into sculpture.
