University staff and NHS physiotherapists will go out on strike today (Thursday) in an outbreak of industrial action continuing to sweep the country.

While Pink Floyd has prepared for the 50th anniversary of its seminal album The Dark Side of the Moon with an expanded reissue featuring a live concert, remastered songs, and much more, Roger Waters apparently has his own celebration in mind. “I wrote The Dark Side of the Moon. “Of course we were a band, there were four of us, we all contributed—but it’s my project and I wrote it. “I’m no copyright expert, but might there be some obstacles to that?”This revelation comes the same week that Waters, Gilmour, and Gilmour’s wife and Pink Floyd collaborator (during the post-Roger era) Polly Samson engaged in a public war of words.
