Haim beat Justin Timberlake to top UK album chart

The hedgehog – once a familiar sight in gardens – is disappearing as fast as the tiger with a population decline since the the 1950s of more than 90 percent. Marina Pacheco, CEO of the Mammal Society, said: “It is astonishing to find that something so ubiquitous can suddenly be under threat. A large part of the problem for hedgehogs is over-development, with our cities becoming denser, more compact, providing less space for animals to move in. “Hedgehogs are under pressure from humans: it is the pressure of development that’s leading to their decline.” Decline across the board The State of Nature report indicates that the UK has lost in the region of 44 million breeding birds since the late 1960s, including millions of the skylarks that herald the spring dawn. Among butterflies alone, 72 percent of species have declined over the last 10 years, and the total number of larger British moths fell by 28 percent between 1968 and 2007. Some native species, such as the stumbling bumblebee are now critically endangered by pollution, the loss of insect-friendly plants in gardens and climate change. Seven out of eight species of the distinctive British ladybird have been declining rapidly since 2001 as the invasive Asian harlequin species has colonised the country. Wildlife in Scotland is considered particularly at risk, with five out of 12 seabird species in serious decline and growing fears that wildcats could become extinct within a few years. Since 1996, harbour seals in Scottish waters have declined by 31 percent. And it is not just animals that are at risk, with serious threats to some of the established features of British plant life. The mighty oak, the “King of Trees” and a potent symbol of England with a special place in the country’s psyche, is just one established feature of the landscape threatened by invaders. The oak processionary moth whose caterpillars strip whole trees bare of leaves has taken hold in London since 2006 after oaks were imported from continental Europe.

New Issue Out Now: Featuring The Strokes / Blur / White Lies / Iggy Pop

According to the Official Charts Company , the 24-year-old Swedish producer and DJ’s track broke through the million copies sales barrier this morning (October 6). The track is the 140th single to reach this milestone in British chart history, and the third to do so this year after Daft Punk ‘s ‘Get Lucky’ and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’. ‘Wake Me Up’ debuted in at Number One in the Official UK Singles Chart back in in July, and it became the fastest selling single of 2013 after shifting 267,000 copies in its first week on sale. The song then spent three consecutive weeks at the top. “Having the fastest selling record of 2013 is obviously a huge deal to me,” Avicii told BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart Show host Jameela Jamil at the time. “I never thought being on the Official Chart was an option for my music. Dance music has its own things; we have our own charts and lists, so just having a Number One is insane!” In related news, Snow Patrol s ‘Chasing Cars’ has also broken through the million sales mark. The track, which was originally released in 2006, has re-entered the Official Singles Chart on an almost annual basis, climbing back into the Top 75 in six out of the last seven years. Elton John s double A-side ‘Something About The Way You Look Tonight / Candle In The Wind ’97’ remains the UKs biggest selling single of all-time. It has sold nearly 5 million copies since its release sixteen years ago. You can see the full list of the UKs 140 Official Million Selling Singles here .

UK’s natural environment in jeopardy

Timberlake’s album, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, had led midweek sales by just 28 copies but was overtaken by Californian sisters, Haim. In the singles chart, OneRepublic’s Counting Stars claimed victory from The Vamps’ Can We Dance. The Official Charts Company said it was “the closest race of the year”. Ryan Tedder’s band OneRepublic secured its first UK number one after rising two places, with just 1,150 copies standing between the two tracks. It is the first time Timberlake has failed to top the UK chart with a new album The debut record from Haim, made up of sisters Este, Danielle and Alana, had been eagerly anticipated since the band won the BBC’s Sound Of 2013 poll in January. Days Are Gone features their three hit singles Don’t Save Me, Falling and The Wire, which the band dedicated to Prime Minister David Cameron when they both appeared on the Andrew Marr programme on BBC One last week. It finished the week 2,100 copies ahead of the second instalment of Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience album series. The original album, which is still at number 33 in the chart, spent three weeks at Number 1 in March and was the star’s third consecutive UK number one album. Last week’s number one album – Mechanical Bull by Kings Of Leon – slipped down to three, with Arctic Monkeys’ AM static at four and Drake’s Nothing Was The Same down to five. Dizzee Rascal’s The Fifth enterted the album chart at number ten, while his new single Something Really Bad took the same position in the single’s chart. Biggest sellers Jason Derulo’s single Talk Dirty FT 2 Chainz dropped to number three with Katy Perry’s Roar in fourth and Chase & Status in fifth with Count On Me FT Moko.
