For Sale: 2004 Honda Accord Tourer. €550. Rare opportunity to own a great diesel.
Due to new circumstances, I have to reluctantly sell my Honda.
This car will make a great candidate for matriculation onto Spanish Plates.
Has done 176000 mainly motorway miles. Only 3 previous owners. Last owner was a freelance pilot, who put 60000 miles on, in 2 years.
Runs very well, recent service, and brand new battery just fitted. Has 4 quality tyres with loads of tread. Comes with S/H. Has had the modified Exhaust Manifold fitted, so no cracking issues etc. Manual gearbox.

Boot is enormous. Biggest in it’s class when new. Together with remote opening and closing, makes life very easy.
As I said it runs great. Stops great, gearbox and clutch fine.
Now for the bad bits.
I never hide things. Always try to be as honest as possible.
Windscreen has large crack due to stone. I believe around 200€ to replace. Sat Nav has suddenly stopped working. I have not looked. Could just need a clean.A couple of battle scars at rear. MOT has run out. So ideal for matriculation. I have set the price accordingly. A great car looking for a new home. Collection only. Andrew, between Canillas de Aceituno, and Sedella MA-126 KM4.

ZANTAC RECALL:  Two more UK companies recall their versions of Zantac heartburn drug over fears they are contaminated with a cancer-causing chemical. This is the fourth ranitidine warning made by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The watchdog issued three others in October.
-The medicines affected are prescription-only and not sold over the counter
-Supplies of ranitidine, the generic ingredient, are affected in the UK and US
-Medicine watchdogs said people should not stop taking their medicines
-But healthcare professionals should not keep prescribing the medications
-Ranitidine drugs made by the companies Creo Pharma and Tillomed are recalled

Pirate IPTV: Spanish Police Target €1m Supplier, 12 People Arrested. The investigation began in 2017 when officers of the Central Cybercrime Unit became aware of a Facebook page where access to pirate TV was being offered. (Since FB saves everything, the police will easily be able to trace all clients of this illegal service who responded to these FB ads. Yet one wonders why FB and YouTube allow these illegal posts despite the FB & YT User Agreements saying no info regarding pirate media sources will be tolerated?!? -Ed) Hoping to make a dent in the supply chain, police in Spain say they have carried out an operation to “dismantle” a service that sourced raw TV streams and distributed them, supplied Video On Demand (VOD) content, and then sold packages to clients. The two-year investigation came to head last Friday when the 12 suspects were arrested when raids were carried out on addresses in Madrid, Toledo, Alicante, Murcia, Gran Canaria, Tenerife and other locations.

Early snow sees November opening for Spain’s ski resorts: The first of Spain’s ski resorts opened last week after a polar blast brought unexpectedly early snow.
La Masella in Spain’s eastern Pyrenean region became the first ski station to open in all of Spain, inaugurating the season last Wednesday with two lifts open.
Snow coverage of about 25cms was topped up by artificial snow machines at the resort in Girona region of Catalonia at the start of a season that is expected to last until Easter week in April next year.
The resorts of Astún (Huesca) and Punto de Nieve Santa Inés (Soria) also opened last weekend.

Sweeping corruption probe in southern Spain delivers first convictions: Two former regional premiers from the Socialist Party (PSOE) have been found guilty by a Seville court in the main case of the so-called “ERE scandal,” involving a decade of irregularities in the use of a €680-million government fund meant for laid-off workers.

Do You Post Videos On YouTube?: If you use the royalty-free music tracks that YouTube offers, you MUST to read this article.
A very popular YouTube video creator, with over 56 million views, who used a royalty-free track supplied by YouTube itself, has had all of his videos copyright claimed by companies including SonyATV and Warner Chappell. According to these big-tech music outfits, Matt Lownes (famous YouTuber) use of the YouTube supplied, supposedly “free to use” track ‘Dreams’ means that they are now entitled to all of Matt’s YouTube  revenue! Matt says he won’t be able to risk putting any music in his videos in future, because even with the best intentions, a “billion-dollar corporation” can simply decide that they “would like to start benefiting off your blood, sweat and tears.” The injustices in this case are outrageous, and unfortunately all too common. Appealing these decisions is a nightmare: waiting games, jargon filled generic auto letters, ignored pleas to communicate with a real human, referrals to other departments, penalties for losing appeals, with a 3 strikes and you’re banned threat rule to discourage appeals, and more this poor fellow had to endure.

Unconfirmed News Reports Circulating On Internet Are Saying President Trump’s Official Food-tester Has Been Hospitalized with Severe Poisoning Symptoms! NaturalNews.com posted yesterday, “President Trump makes unscheduled stop at military hospital to undergo battery of tests for possible deliberate poisoning of food with “time delayed” chemical agent; food tester gravely ill – White House connected source”. Fox59.com confirms that Trump needed tests which were not available at the White House clinic facility, saying, “Several experts familiar with White House medical procedures said that Trump can get routine labwork done at the White House’s on-site clinic, indicating Trump needed tests that can’t be done there.”I have been unable to get confirmation from any “mainstream news” sources. -Ed.

News & Articles

Windows 10 News Semi-annual Update v1909 was released last week. It was offered to me this weekend. With these big, semi-annual Windows updates I suggest you wait at least 2 weeks after it is first offered to your computer before you install it. Remember, you must have approx. 7 to 9Gb or more of free space on your hard drive to install the semi-annual updates. Those of you with small notebook laptops with 32Gb solid-state hard drives often lack the free space needed to update. The work-around, as explained in the popup error message that displays when you try to update and it fails for lack of space, is to plug in an external USB memory device. I suggest you use a USB 3 memory stick, 16 or 32Gb (8Gb is not enough), formatted to NTFS, with no data on it. Plug it in and continue the update; you may need to restart the unit, and retry the update. Other external memory devices or those containing data may work, but it is not nearly as reliable as the previously mentioned method. -DoctorLaptop. Contact info in sponsor’s section.

 

Pets

Kittens Need Home: I am looking desperately for someone who has a garden or lives in the campo to have 5 ( or less) kittens of 7 months old . They have all been spayed, injected, wormed etc. At the moment they are living in my mother’s residential home in the garden and are being fed every day. The problem now is that they are going inside ( obviously as cold) and the home do not want this. They have threatened to get rid of them and I’m very worried for their safety!
They would be happy living semi wild with an out house to go in for warmth and food every day. They are quite friendly now especially the 2 boy tabby’s. They like company and sit near us. I’m sure in time they will all become tame. One of the male tabby’s eat from our hands and can be stroked.
There are 3 tabby’s and 2 black cats. Very attractive and sweet.
Or maybe someone would like one or two!!
Please can someone help.

The End of an Institution? Why watching football at your local bar in Spain could soon end!: Sky-high subscription fees means more than 50,000 bar owners in Spain are struggling to make a profit from showing football on their TV screens.
That’s primarily because the main telecoms companies – Movistar, Vodafone and Orange – charge them around €300 a month to have the right to broadcast football in a public place.
Each one of the broadcasters offers its own particular package with the rights to different football leagues only they can show, so for bars that specialize in showing international football and sport, monthly subscription fees near €1,000.
In the case of Movistar’s LaLiga TV Bar – the only TV channel with a license to show Spanish first division matches in a public place – their justification for the pricey fee is that the average football aficionado will spend €13 during the two and half hours they stay at the bar. The reality however suggests that customers don’t spend as much as that.
According to SES Astra, a company that specializes in monitoring TV signals via satellite, 57,000 out of the 120,000 bars, cafés and restaurants in Spain with a TV actually broadcast content illegally, usually via pirate websites. “Illegally streaming or broadcasting football can result in a piracy lawsuit being opened up against you, with fines of more than €6,000 and the temporary closure of your establishment,” Movistar has warned bar owners across the country. “It can even result in prison sentences for the culprits,” SES Astra director Luis Sahún warned.
With exorbitant sports TV licenses unlikely to be reduced and increasingly stringent rules surrounding illegal broadcasting in Spain, many cash-strapped bar owners are now faced with a difficult choice.
Is it the end of football showing in the background in Spanish bars?
Probably not, but it may be a rarity rather than a mainstay. (And what will this really accomplish? A relatively insignificant few extra million euros for some huge tech companies. In the end the real beneficiaries may be the radio stations while the small, family run local big-screen tv vendors take a beating. Ed.)

News & Articles

Sporting heroes are on the Costa del Sol for The Marca Sport Weekend Marbella: The event, organised by theMarbella City Council and the leading sports newspaper, will bring together more than 80 professionals and legends from a wade range of sports in 50 free activities. The event will begin on Friday with several highlights such as meetings with Boris Becker and Mick Doohan, the so-called ‘Craziest match in history’, which will feature footballers Vero Boquete, Diego Forlán and Carlos Cuellar with a hundred youth players.
There will also be a talk and screening of the Spain-Malta match won by Spain 12-1 and considered the most incredible feat in the history of Spanish football, despite some detractors who believe running up high scores is counter productive to the overall health of the sport. Should make for an interesting discussion.

Venice ‘on its knees’ after second-worst flood ever recorded: Venice, Italy (AP) – The worst flooding in Venice in more than 50 years prompted calls Wednesday to better protect the historic city from rising sea levels as officials calculated hundreds of millions of euros in damage. More than 85% of the city was flooded. The water reached 1.87 meters (6.14 feet) above average sea level Tuesday, the second-highest level ever recorded in the city and just 7 centimeters (2½ inches) lower than the historic 1966 flood. Another wave of exceptionally high water followed Wednesday. AP Photos/Luca Bruno  https://apnews.com/2e212a874a064ce4af63dc3ffda0258e

(dailymail.co.uk) ‘You couldn’t make this up!’: Furious backlash after it emerges that Google has secretly amassed healthcare data on millions of people; AND TO MAKE THINGS WORSE…Google just reached a deal to acquire FitBit: (Google has been caught in USA, but do you really believe Google restricts it’s data abuses exclusively to the USA? How long will it be till your Fitbit is feeding live data to your health insurance provider, under cover of offering you discounts for good readings of course?-Ed.)
Lawyers, medical professionals and tech experts have reacted with a mixture of horror and fury after it emerged that Google has been secretly acquiring sensitive medical data on millions of people without their knowledge or consent.
Analysts called for an immediate change to privacy laws after Google and Ascension, the healthcare organization it has partnered with, boasted that the scheme is completely legal. There were big-tech pundits defending the data snatch and privacy invasion  as “community health progress” on TRE Radio and other media networks yesterday.
Dr. Robert Epstein, an author, medical researcher and former editor-in-chief at the respected journal Psychology Today, summed up the mood when he tweeted: ‘You can’t make this s*** up. #BeAfraid.’

Apple Mobile Device Update Alert!: iOS 13.2.2 causes battery havoc- short life and overheating!
Apple’s iOS 13.2.2 update, which was pushed out to fix a bug in the previous update that essentially broke multitasking on the iPhone and iPad, has itself bought a new and annoying bug to the iPhone. Battery life is now reportedly so bad that one can watch their battery life ticking down while browsing the web, composing an email, or using Twitter. The problem doesn’t seem to be down to specific apps, but instead seems to be a widespread operating system problem. Refrain from installing this update to iOS 13.2.2 until it is fixed; ignore the warnings in the press last week that encouraged users to do this update asap. The problem the previous update fixes is less critical for most users than this new battery problem. Photo:ZDNet

Good News for the Mobility Impared: In the latest episode of Smart Regions, new electric tricycles that resemble Roman chariots have begun appearing in France. They are calling the vehicle the “Benur” and the project is backed by the EU’s Cohesion Policy. The vehicles can also be pedalled with the rider’s hands and are already a hit with people with impaired mobility.
To begin with, the vehicles will be located, on two sections of Viarhona: Miribel-Jonage and Tain-Tournon. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region wants to be the ‘flagship’ territory for this mobility project. ViaRhôna project manager Yves Ronot is excited by the potential of the inclusive vehicle.
