In Spain, how nutrients poisoned one of Europe’s largest saltwater lagoons | AFP

A fisherman all his life, 50-year-old Pedro Martinez-Banos grew up along the shores of Spain’s Mar Menor in the southeastern coastal region of Murcia, casting out his nets to bring in a catch to support his family. 2019 had been a very good year for him, his small boat bringing in about 100 kilos per day. But on October 12, it all changed when millions of fish and crustaceans washed up on the Mar Menor’s northern shores, dead or dying.

London Elektricity – Well That’s A Switch

Buy or Stream ‘Building Better Worlds’ here: https://LondonElek.lnk.to/BuildingBetterWorldsyc

Following six studio albums of funk-driven loungecore, Hospital Records’ head honcho London Elektricity embarks on the boldest musical adventure of his 30-year career with his seventh long-player ‘Building Better Worlds’.

It began in a Forest Hill cafe in 2017 where London Elektricity adoringly browsed through a series of Benjamin Beech’s photography of perfectly untouched, derelict buildings and towns in Japan, Taiwan and China. “Many of the images show what has been, what could have been and what will be. The duality of beauty and melancholia within appealed to me immensely.” Each track was married to a photo, to join the sights to sounds from each of his tales of ‘Building Better Worlds.’

Leading the voyage is the orchestral masterpiece ‘Final View From The Rooftops’, that’s been 13 years in the making and is the “most unusual piece of D+B” [he’s] ever made”, featuring the incredible operatic talent of Cydnei B. ‘Build A Better World’ is a smooth drum & bass sonnet with the vocals of Hospital family favourite Emer Dineen. “The beauty of this song lies in its simplicity, but also its duality. I’ll leave you to work out what the lyrics are really about… They are some of the darkest lyrics I’ve come across in years.”

Another special moment is the feature of London Elektricity’s youngest son, The Secretary-General. The talented nine-year-old takes no ‘Time To Think’ as he flawlessly flows through Inja’s lyrics with the ever-vibrant MC following suit, bringing the track full-circle across generations.

London Elektricity is the mastermind behind classic Hospital albums such as ‘Pull The Plug’, ‘Syncopated City’, ‘Are We There Yet?’, and ‘Yikes’. His latest body of work delves into uncharted depths for a very personal and expressive collection of tracks where drum & bass and live instrumentation meet. London Elektricity can be found showcasing this latest chapter with tours in China, Japan, the UK and Europe throughout 2019.

‘Building Better Worlds’ is available as a special limited edition, 36-page lyric-book complete with an in-depth narrative for each track and a 3 x clear vinyl, on sale exclusively from the Hospital Shop.

Back on all fours – Ronda the dog’s pioneering prosthetic surgery | AFP

Ronda seemed doomed. The six-year-old French mastiff had developed a tumour on her paw that required amputation and the fitting of a prosthetic leg — a rare and complex operation. Fortunately, Rodrigues knew the perfect person for the job. Ronda had already been treated as a puppy by veterinarian Henrique Armes — a pioneer in the field of prostheses for pets in Europe.
