Walking through a new city often becomes a mystery treasure hunt, as murals pop up around corners, from single-subject paintings to elaborate projects that take up the entire wall of a building.“This book is intended as a starting point to your journey, highlighting a selection of some of the key cities around the world to experience street art today, and providing guides to each city’s street art hotspots to enable you to explore further,” writes United Kingdom-based curator and creative industries entrepreneur Ed Bartlett in the book’s introduction.Interviews with pioneering artists (Vhils, Blek le Rat, FAILE, Nunca, Faith47 and Martyn Reed) are scattered throughout the book, like those precious pieces of street art on an urban adventure.The graffiti and street art on show often has political messages at its heart, stemming from its origins in the apartheid reforms of the 1980s.Today, street artists use the city’s vast amount of wall-space (as well as buses, phone booths and construction boards) as a canvas to explore Mexico’s social and political issues, from the cult of the drug lords to the plight of Central American migrants.New York: As the birthplace of modern graffiti, it’s no surprise that New York and its artists played a starring role in the global growth of street art.

- This Map Will Remind You Why You Can’t Always Trust Your Tap Water
By Eillie Anzilotti - Friday Jun 9, 2017
The most comprehensive resource to date on chemical contamination shows that the taps of 15 million Americans pour out unsafe water.
In 2014, Michael Hickey, a resident of Hoosick Falls, a small town in upstate New York, sent a sample of his tap water to a lab in Canada. Hickey’s father had died of cancer the year before, and he had long suspected the drinking water in his town of being unsafe for human consumption. Because Hoosick Falls is so tiny, the Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t test its water. So Hickey undertook the investigation independently. When the results came back from Canada, they showed a level of chemical contamination unsafe for human consumption.
