Deep Down & Dirty is the fourth studio album by the British electronic band Stereo MCs (pictured), released on May 28 2001, nine years after the successful Connected. The album maintains a similar style to its predecessor with deep-groove, beatbox funk, nods to soul-jazz and gospel though music critics at the time noted its grittier, edgier approach. The title track was released as the album's first single. It was recorded at Frontline Studios, Brixton, London.

2016 Foreshore Freeway Bridge C-class Foreshore Freeway Bridge.jpg The Foreshore Freeway Bridge, also known as Cape Town's Unfinished Bridge, is an incomplete section of what was intended to be the Eastern Boulevard Highway in the city bowl of Cape Town, South Africa. Conceptualised and designed in the late 1960s, work began in the early 1970s with the freeway aimed at alleviating future traffic congestion in the city expected in the years to come. However, due to budget constraints in city expenditure at the time, the project never came to completion and has stood in its unfinished state since construction officially ended in 1977.

After a year and a half of investigations by the South African police, the chief suspect and youngest son Henri van Breda handed himself over to police in June 2016 and was released on bail the next day. The case has polarized the country's media and gained significant attention since Henri's surrender. Pictured is the DeZalze Golf Estate where the attack took place.
