…We’ve gone green! We’ve scaled the magazine down to ‘digest’ size for the summer, perfect for beach bags – and the environment. But don’t fret, it’s still chock-a-block with the same amount of gripping articles and fun features.
To start us off we have not one but two articles on the unavoidable business of Blockchain. Did you know it is estimated that less than 10% of the money in circulation is now physical cash? Jamie takes us back to basics and explains just how blockchain works, and Denise highlights the importance of partnerships within the blockchain community.
Continuing from where he left off last issue, we return to the important conversation between Iain and ‘Roger’ on his mental health struggles. On the same topic, Elaine writes about the current taboo topic of abortion, and how mental wellbeing is paramount before and after life changing decisions.
After undergoing restoration, ‘el jungle’ is now better known for being the important heritage site that it is. Mark takes us up the Rock to the Northern Defences, as history comes alive. It doesn’t end there; Reg is back with the fascinating story of Operation Snatch.
As usual, our contributors have been busy running around town to get you some great interviews. Molly sits down with headteacher Michelle Barabich, Richard sits down with Henry Pinna – he of many hats, and in a spot of role reversal, Marcus gets sat down by his doctor, who has some unfortunate news for him. (Or fortunate, if his goal was to accumulate enough iron in his blood to set off every metal detector in the vicinity.)
June is set to be a scorcher for entertainment: the Gibraltar World Music Festival, ArtDance International Platform’s 2nd festival, and ghost whisperer Derek Acorah returns to the Rock. I called him up for a chinwag and asked him the questions you’re dying to know. And finally, the event that reunites friends and brings together families for just one night; Miss Gibraltar 2018.
Enjoy the issue!
