Mil ovejas merinas y cien cabras retintas del rebaño trashumante se encuentran ya en la Comunidad de Madrid para transitar este domingo por la calle Mayor y el Paseo de Recoletos de Madrid, entre otras céntricas vías, en la XXVIII Fiesta de la Trashumancia. El rebaño trashumante, guiado por la Asociación Trashumancia y Naturaleza y la Asociación Concejo de la Mesta, regresa así a la región tras haber pasado este verano en los pastos del Norte de España. Los animales salieron el 25 de septiembre de Cervera de Pisuerga y Polentinos en la Cordillera Cantábrica Palentina. Han recorrido durante este mes de trashumancia el Cordel Cerverano que no se utilizaba desde hace más de medio siglo y la Cañada Real Leonesa Oriental para cruzar este sábado 16 de octubre el Parque Nacional de Guadarrama para ser recibidos ese día el Collado del Arcipreste por las autoridades municipales de Guadarrama. El rebaño está dirigido por Jesús Garzón, presidente de Trashumancia y Naturaleza y del Concejo de la Mesta, por Marity González, primera Mayorala del Concejo de la Mesta, por tres pastores y un hatero, defendido por 6 perros mastines, 4 careas vascos y 1 carea leones, que ayudan a los pastores en su manejo. La Comunidad de Madrid, con 3.700 kilómetros de vías pecuarias y una superficie de 12.600 hectáreas (el 3,3 por ciento de la región), "en su mayoría perfectamente señalizadas, constituye un extraordinario ejemplo de región densamente poblada y urbanizada que ha sabido respetar este patrimonio único de red de vías pecuarias", señalan los organizadores de esta fiesta que, además de apostar por la recuperación de esta forma de pastoreo como forma de proteger el patrimonio inmaterial y el medio ambiente, reclaman cada año el mantenimiento y la protección de las cañadas y vías pecuarias en España. Garzón ha indicado que el rebaño está colaborando con el proyecto 'Life' de la Universidad Autónoma y la Comunidad de Madrid, que tiene como objetivos "fundamentales" la conservación de la biodiversidad a través de las vías pecuarias.

There is one image from Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's recent inauguration that really stuck in my mind, a mental image that said something significant about him and the perilous future of this country of 110 million. The 45-year old Ethiopian looked comfortable in this setting, every inch the strong and powerful African ruler, and he would later declare his intention to "protect the nation from foreign interference" amid global criticism over the war in the northern region of Tigray. A bundle of youthful and optimistic energy, Mr Ahmed released thousands of political prisoners, lifted restrictions on independent media and asked hundreds of exiled opposition leaders to return home.

Adele had hoped for a summer release of her long-awaited fourth album, 30, but the singer’s schedule hit an unlikely roadblock – the global shortage of vinyl.

Vinyl sales soared by 108 per cent in the US in the 12 months, according to the Recording Industry
