MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing.
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our health. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help
-slow down ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate blemishes.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration, cell revitalization and antioxidant effect, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients with gorgeous fragrances.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all local customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering a small discount on future purchases to customers recycling containers.
Free small testers are available on request. Please contact us to find out more or to order:

Huge lava flow from new fissure on La Palma volcano: A new fissure has opened up today, Thursday, November 25, on the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Canary Island of La Palma. This news was announced by Involcan, the Canary Islands Volcanological Institute, on their official Twitter account at around 5.15 local Canarian time.
This new opening is located to the south of the volcano’s main core, and according to Involcan, is already emitting a large volume of lava. It is thought this new opening could well lead to more fissures opening up. The new stream is flowing at around 600m/hour, and unfortunately is heading in the direction of more of the island’s infrastructure.
Its rapid flow has already buried Las Manchas cemetery this afternoon, and destroyed another 40 properties including farmhouses and their surrounding farmland. The photovoltaic plant is also under threat, as the stream destroys everything in its way.

New COVID variant Omicron triggers global alarm, market sell-off: The discovery of a new coronavirus variant named Omicron triggered global alarm on Friday as countries rushed to suspend travel from southern Africa and stock markets on both sides of the Atlantic suffered their biggest falls in more than a year.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) said Omicron may spread more quickly than other forms, and preliminary evidence suggested there is an increased risk of reinfection.
Epidemiologists warned travel curbs may be too late to stop Omicron from circulating globally. The new mutations were first discovered in South Africa and have since been detected in Belgium, Botswana, Israel and Hong Kong.

In the quantum world, time does not flow as it does in the classical:
Time always advances forward, at least in the classical world, but it is a statement that does not have to be true in the quantum world, where the border between forward and backward may be blurred according to a study published today by Communications Physics. A team of researchers from the Universitat de les Illes Balears (Spain), Bristol (UK) and Vienna have shown how quantum systems can evolve simultaneously along two opposite temporal arrows, both forwards and backwards in time. The study requires rethinking how the flow of time is understood and represented in contexts where quantum laws play a crucial role.

New DGT device that detects drivers braking before speed cameras:
Many drivers who know where a speed camera, or radar device is installed, are in the habit of braking a short distance before reaching it, and then accelerating away after passing it. These days, according to the DGT, are numbered, thanks to a new device they will roll out on the road system.

UK Nationals Who Fail to Meet 90-Day Stay Limit in France Are Warned They’ll Be Fined: In addition, British travel bosses have warned that Brits travelling to the EU may face long border queues starting from next year due to the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIA) and the Entry-Exit System (EES), which are expected to be effective by mid-2022.

The UK Will Finally Officially Recognize Octopuses And Crabs as Sentient Beings: The update to the Animal Welfare Sentience Bill, which would see decapods and cephalopods protected alongside all back-boned animals from frogs to dogs, follows a review of over 300 scientific studies by the London School of Economics and Political Science.
Cephalopods have clearly demonstrated their incredible intelligence. Cuttlefish, for example, can pass cognitive tests designed for human children, while octopuses can recognize individual humans, remember how to solve puzzles they’ve encountered before, and they’re notorious escape artists too. They also emotionally feel pain, and when trapped in environments that lack stimulation, they grow frustrated and bored just like we do. They may even be able to dream.
While not as famously as the octopus, crabs have also demonstrated an ability to learn via association too. They can learn to navigate complex mazes and recognize and remember a fake seagull isn’t a threat. They also experience pain, demonstrate protective and learning behaviors to avoid it, and suffer stress from excessive noise. Photo:Getty.

Portuguese Government returns to the state of emergency & has decreed a week of “containment”: {Translation}
-The Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa, announced Thursday that the country will return to a state of health emergency as of December 1, as a result of the significant increase in new infections and with an incidence that already stands at 251 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.
-Costa’s announcement once again brings with it the obligation to wear masks in closed spaces, to present vaccination certificates or negative tests for coronavirus in order to access bars, restaurants, leisure spaces and sporting events, in addition to the control of air borders where the health pass must be presented.
-The Government of Portugal has decreed a “week of containment” of contacts between January 2 and 9 in which teleworking will be mandatory and in which bars and nightclubs will be closed. Schools will start on January 10. “If there is one thing we have to avoid, it is to have a January 2022 that resembles the tragic January 2021,” said Prime Minister António Costa.
-In addition, from December 1, face masks will again be mandatory in enclosed spaces and without exception; the digital certificate will be mandatory to enter restaurants, hotels, gyms and other events. It will also be necessary to present a negative test – also in the case of vaccinated persons – for visits to residences, inpatients, large events without designated seating, sports venues, discotheques and bars.
-Portugal will require from December 1 a negative test for all passengers entering the country by air, even if they have a vaccination certificate, and will toughen penalties for airlines that allow people to board without a test.
-The prime minister has pointed out that the situation has worsened since last September 29, when some restrictions were lifted. “We have been above the red line of more than 240 cases per 100,000 population for three days now.” Sources, Spanish: https://www.eldiario.es/sociedad/ultima-hora-coronavirus-actualidad-politica-25-noviembre_6_8523374_1081603.html

EU Commission Unveils Plans to Make Vaccination Passports Valid for Only 9 Months: “The nine-month period takes into account the guidance of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) on the administration of booster doses as of six months, and provides for an additional period of three months to ensure that national vaccination campaigns can adjust and citizens can have access to boosters,” the Commission recommends.

New Covid Variant Identified In South Africa, to be put on England’s travel red list: The variant, which was identified on Tuesday, initially sparked concern because it carries an “extremely high number” of mutations meaning that the spike protein now looks dramatically different from the version that vaccines were designed to target. The latest data, presented by South African scientists on Thursday, revealed that the variant also appears to be more transmissible and is already present in provinces throughout the country. Another case has been reported in Hong Kong, in a traveler who had recently returned from South Africa.
The World Health Organization said it was “closely monitoring” the reported variant and was expected to convene a technical meeting on Friday to determine if it should be designated a variant of “interest” or of “concern”.

Pre-planning your funeral is a thoughtful and responsible way to show you care about your family.
Funerals are no easy task. There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase and burial grounds. A loved one’s death brings immense emotional strain to any family, and the question of financing and arrangements only exacerbates the stress.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver:
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.

Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.

Recommendations & Requests

 

TV Repair Advice: This tv is causing me a problem I cannot resolve.
TV Model LG LED TV 24TK410V 60cm/2
The remote will turn the TV on but will not perform any other functions. It also leaves the volume slider visual on the screen set to zero, which cannot be removed or controlled by the remote. A mag box can be connected and controlled by its own remote but because this will not override the volume issue the TV is useless as there is no volume and the screen is compromised by the permanent volume icon. There are no controls on the TV apart from an On/Off button. I have thought of buying a new remote but wanted to get another take on the problem before going down that route.
Would appreciate hearing from anyone out there in Digame-land that has a solution apart from putting it by the bins.

COVID-19

Covid Spain- Covid rate rises to 139.1 with 34 deaths: This Tuesday the incidence rate in Spain rises to 139.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, seven points more than this Monday. Navarra remains at the head of the autonomous communities with the highest incidence, and on this day almost 400 cases are reported for every 100,000 inhabitants.
There have been 34 deaths have been reported this Tuesday from COVID-19, while 22 deaths were recorded on Monday. Full article: https://spainsnews.com/the-incidence-rises-another-seven-points-to-139-cases-after-notifying-6777-new-infections/

 

Covid Andalucia- Andalusia exceeds 70 points of incidence, 782 positive results, 2 deaths: {Translation, summary} 22/11/2021,12:45
-Andalusia recorded this Monday, November 22, a total of 782 coronavirus infections in 48 hours, a figure higher than the 741 infections on Saturday and also higher than the 338 a week ago, while adding two deaths, two less than on Saturday and one less than last Monday.
-The two deaths of this day have been recorded in the province of Malaga.
-In Andalusia, the incidence in 14 days stands at 71.06 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – the highest since September 20 when 72.9 were recorded – which is 5.3 points more than Saturday (65.7) and 26.5 points more than last Monday.
-The 782 infections this Sunday and Monday are reported after 741 on Saturday, 718 on Friday, 737 on Thursday, 564 on Wednesday, 487 on Tuesday and 338 last Monday.
-With respect to the provincialized data, Malaga is the province with the most positives with 201, followed by Seville with 163, Cadiz with 105, Almeria with 104, Cordoba with 64, Huelva with 51, Granada with 46 and Jaen with 48.

SPAIN

The new COVID traffic light is approved without setting restrictions after the controversy over hospitality hours: The tensions between the communities and the Ministry of Health on account of the new COVID traffic light have ended, for the moment, with a strange solution: the Public Health Commission has given the green light to lower the accumulated incidence thresholds corresponding to each alert level, but the approved document does not contain any restriction associated with each stage of risk.
-Alert level 1 (low risk) has a new ceiling: it rises from 50 to 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days (a maximum of 50 in seven). The medium risk (alert level 2) is reached if it exceeds 100; the high (alert level 3) is above 300 and the extreme (alert level 4) would be reached with an AI that exceeds 500.
The document maintains special attention to transmission among those over 65 years of age because the group has the highest risk of dying if they are not vaccinated, have comorbidities (other diseases that make them more vulnerable) and in general respond worse to immunization because their body is weaker. Level 1 is reached if the AI ??of this age group exceeds 25 cases; the 2, with 50; the 3, with 150 and the 4 if it is higher than 250.
-Remaining conflicts have prevented reaching a final, complete agreement. The heart of the matter is in the measures on the hotel industry. Many regional governments are not willing, at least for the moment and with the Christmas holidays looming, to limit the activity of the hotel industry, either with schedules or with capacity.
-The review of risk levels is also important at the terminological level. The document no longer speaks of “new normality” as the best scenario but of “controlled circulation”. Compared to what was previously considered, at this point in the pandemic it is relatively clear, experts say, that it is not possible to achieve group immunity. At least with the effect of current vaccines since the virus can continue to be transmitted – to a lesser extent – between immunized individuals.

Scam Alert: The Guardia Civil has taken to its Twitter social media account to warn about a scam involving the popular Lidl kitchen robot ‘Monsieur Cuisine’, which was withdrawn from the market in Spain after a well-publicised court ruling.
The fraudulent campaign, with the excuse of Black Friday, announces an offer of 1.99 euros for a kitchen robot. The advertisement on social media networks the redirects the user to a website that requests personal and bank details for the alleged purchase of the robot, but what it hides is a subscription to a service that costs 33 euros every 14 days.
The fake offer was originally detected on Facebook, although it is not ruled out that may find its way onto other social networks or arrive via email. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/spain/lidl-guardia-civil-20211123122420-nt.html 

ANDALUCIA

Andalusia is committed to a mandatory Covid passport but positioned itself against the document known as the “Covid traffic light”: {Translation, summary} 23/11/2021, 20:28
-The committee of experts will meet again on Friday at 11.30 am at the Palacio de San Telmo and will ask the Ministry of Health to make the Covid passport mandatory. It rules out for now the application of restrictive measures and the change of provincial levels despite the fact that the evolution of the pandemic is “worrying but not alarming”.
-The Minister of Health, Jesús Aguirre, during his intervention in the press conference following the Governing Council, assured that Andalusia will progressively adopt the “Covid passport” depending on the evolution of the pandemic. This document could be required in hospitals and residences, and also in nightlife, large events, cultural and sports activities.
-For its implementation, the Board will need the “administrative permissibility” of the High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA), although it will require the Spanish Government to “change the legislation so that the autonomous communities have tools” to combat the pandemic.
-However, “a change in the levels of the provinces or the application of restrictions is not contemplated”, as confirmed by Aguirre.
-Andalusia positioned itself against the document known as the “Covid traffic light”. It included measures such as the closure of the hotel and catering business at 23.00 hours and nightlife at 1.00 hours or the limitation of capacity.

The new managers of the bar will have all the facilities and will only have to pay for electricity, water and maintenance. The premises are equipped with tables, chairs, kitchenware and kitchen, ready to carry out the activity.
The bar-museum is located in the old oil mill of the village that was recently restored and has the machinery that was used to work the oil, being an additional attraction for tourism.

Wave of protests over price hikes puts a damper on financial recovery: Truckers, farmers, auto and metal workers, hairdressers and pensioners are all staging marches against soaring production costs and inflation.
The recovery seems to be right around the corner just when people’s patience has reached its limit amid a blend of different realities and expectations. This is taking the form of growing street unrest: truck drivers have called a three-day strike over Christmas to complain about rising diesel prices; metal workers in Cádiz have been putting up street barricades to protest inflation spikes that are cutting into their salaries; auto workers have called a demonstration in Madrid on Monday over factory shutdowns caused by car chip shortages; consumer associations have already organized several marches against rising electricity bills, and even hairdressers have been staging sit-ins to demand lower value-added tax rates. The common thread is the rising cost of living and, for the self-employed, of running a business.

-This measure is part of the Royal Decree that regulates and clarifies certain requirements regarding hygiene and marketing of food products that are served in retail establishments, for which the Ministry of Consumer Affairs has opened a public hearing this Monday that will last 15 days.

Football News- Football Super League squabble arrives at the European Parliament: Promoters of the controversial Super League football tournament have sent a letter to EU lawmakers ahead of this week’s vote in the European Parliament on a sports-related report, attacking what they said was the monopoly of Europe’s “self-established” football governing body UEFA.
In particular, they accuse UEFA of not respecting the EU competition law. “The conflicts of interest are obvious as is the incompatibility with EU competition law,” the letter reads.
“UEFA, the self-established ‘governing body’ of European football has, in addition to its alleged regulatory role, also established itself as the monopoly operator of cross-border club football competitions,” it continues.

The next pandemic- How Covid-19 has accelerated the emergence of super-bacteria: On occasion of the annual World Antimicrobial Awareness Week, which began on November 18 and runs until November 24, the relevant authorities have sounded the trumpets of the Apocalypse.
Health authorities warn that antibiotics are losing their effectiveness against disease and that humanity faces a future in which any minor infection could prove lethal.
Treatments to counter bacteria are ceasing to work, now at an even greater speed due to excessive and incorrect consumption of antibiotics during the coronavirus pandemic. Cristina Muñoz, co-director of the National Plan against Resistance to Antibiotics (PRAN), paints a dystopian image of a world without antibiotics, where any minor infection could prove lethal: no Caesarian sections, no organ transplants, no meniscus operations, no hip replacements.
“It would be taking a backward step equivalent to 100 years of medical advances,” says Muñoz. Full article: https://english.elpais.com/usa/2021-11-22/the-next-pandemic-how-covid-19-has-accelerated-the-emergence-of-super-bacteria.html

Email Issue Causing False Security Warnings For Gmail Users Monday 22/11/21

Hello Readers,

Some people, all Gmail users so far, are getting a Security Warning when opening todays email issue of DigameXtra. I have investigated, and I believe this is because of an article I posted containing a list of pirate IPTV services that were shut down last week. Evidently, this list contains websites that Gmail has blacklisted. There is no threat. I just checked the whole issue on VirusTotal website scanner and it found no threats. See results: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/url/494df120d2fba5113e33f425cbbcaa9465e6e4a1bb29b84d126186076fcc1f2b?nocache=1

I’ll watch out for this in the future so as to avoid these kind of email problems.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Naythan, Editor

Leading the guerrillas against Franco’s Civil Guard was a legendary figure, Roberto, a veteran of the Civil War and the French Resistance, charismatic but doomed.

After working on newspapers and magazines around the world — from London and Ottawa to Sydney and Hong Kong — he now makes his home in southern Spain. His books have been published in English, Spanish and German. (published by MaromaPress, http://www.maromapress.wordpress.com).

COVID-19

Andalusia offers the third dose of the vaccine to health workers and those over the age of 60 years: {Translation, summary} 21/11/2021, 10:18
-The Ministry of Health will begin this Monday to administer the third dose of the vaccine against Covid-19 to health and social-health personnel and to the population between 60 and 69 years of age, since until now it has been limited to those over 70 years of age.
-The Minister of Health explained that vaccination with the third dose will be done “gradually, from more to age to less”, starting in the range of 69 to 60 years, and by appointment.
-Andalusia began last September 21 to administer the third dose against Covid-19 from Pfizer or Moderna to the more than 43,554 users of the residences for the elderly, while a few weeks earlier it had begun to inoculate this serum to immunosuppressed patients.
-Last November 5, the self-appointment was opened to obtain a date for the supply of the third dose of the vaccines. As always, this self-appointment can be made through the usual applications (ClicSalud+ and App Salud Responde) and by telephone through Salud Responde and appointment at the health centers themselves.

UK

UK weather forecast- Heavy snow to fall ‘for days’ as temperatures fall to -12C: Brits face freezing temperatures from the start of next week along with several days of snow, which could extend as far south as London.
The promise of colder weather is now just a few days away as from Monday the UK can expect sub-zero temperatures, according to WXCharts. Then from there the mercury will fall dramatically and possibly hit -12C by the end of November in what has been called a “little ice age” due to Arctic plumes blowing south.
Much of the country will see sub-zero temperatures next week where it will hover around 0C, with lows of -7C, although it won’t be as cold in the south of England.
The Met Office has warned of heavy snowfall in the north of the UK on Monday, with the cold blast predicted to reach the south by Wednesday night. London could see wintry showers and snow by the end of next week. By November 29 it is set to be also freezing in London, drop to around -4C in Newcastle and in the Scottish Highlands it could get to -12C.
There is not likely to be any relief from the freezing temperatures for weeks as it will hang around -2C to -4C for much of the country. Full article: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/uk-weather-forecast-heavy-snow-25503385 

EUROPE

Third night of rioting erupts over Dutch COVID-19 rules: Riots broke out in cities across the Netherlands on Sunday, the third night in a row that police clashed with mobs of angry youths who set fires and threw rocks to protest COVID-19 restrictions.
Unrest was reported in locations including Leeuwarden and Groningen in the north, the eastern town of Enschede and Tilburg in the south. In Enschede, where an emergency ordinance was issued, police used batons to try to disperse a crowd, according to video on social media. In Leeuwarden, police vans were pelted with rocks and black-clad groups chanted and set off flares.

Clashes break out in Brussels, 35,000 march in protests over coronavirus restrictions: Protesters wearing black hoods threw stones at police as they advanced with water cannon at the main junction in front of the European Union Commission headquarters, Reuters journalists said. Facing up to the police lines, the protesters held hands and chanted “freedom”. One protester was carrying a placard reading “when tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty”.
Protesters also threw smoke bombs and fireworks, the newspaper Le Soir reported. The situation calmed down later, police said.
Belgium tightened its coronavirus restrictions on Wednesday, mandating wider use of masks and enforcing work from home, as cases rose in the country’s fourth COVID-19 wave.

Tennis News- Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai says she is safe, in video call with Olympic official: Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai had a video call on Sunday with the president of the International Olympic Committee and told him she was safe and well, the IOC said, after Western governments expressed mounting concern for her well-being.
Photos and videos of Peng at a children’s tournament in Beijing published earlier in the day had done little to quell that unease, following a nearly three-week public absence after she alleged that a former senior Chinese official sexually assaulted her.
In a statement, the IOC said Peng began the 30-minute call with its president Thomas Bach by thanking the Olympic organization for its concern.
“She explained that she is safe and well, living at her home in Beijing, but would like to have her privacy respected at this time,” the IOC’s statement said. Full article: https://www.reuters.com/world/china/tennis-peng-shuai-appears-china-tennis-event-organiser-photos-show-2021-11-21/

NASA’s DART mission to crash into an asteroid- What you need to know: DART will help determine whether we can protect the planet from errant space rocks. DART, which stands for Double Asteroid Redirection Test, is NASA’s test run of a futuristic planetary defense system that’ll protect Earth from incoming asteroids by literally slamming spacecraft into them.
Somewhere in our solar system lies a grayish space rock about a half mile wide known as Didymos, which, with a gentle gravitational pull, keeps a companion asteroid on a leash. That second, smaller asteroid orbiting Didymos is DART’s target: Dimorphos.
In late 2022, the DART spacecraft is poised to autonomously navigate toward and collide with Dimorphos when it’s about 7 million miles from Earth — their closest point to Earth. NASA predicts the crash will be strong enough to adjust Dimorphos’s orbital period by a few minutes. Calculations show the impact will bring Dimorphos closer to Didymos.

MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing.
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our health. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help
-slow down ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate blemishes.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration, cell revitalization and antioxidant effect, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients with gorgeous fragrances.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all local customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering a small discount on future purchases to customers recycling containers.
Free small testers are available on request. Please contact us to find out more or to order:

COVID-19

Covid Malaga- The rate Covid rises nearly 20 cases in a week in Malaga, other numbers not encouraging (but we’re still far better off than most of Europe): {Translation} November 19, 2021 – 14:13
-This Friday the cumulative incidence (AI) in the province of Malaga has risen 5 cases to 74 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. This represents an increase of 18 points compared to the record of Friday last week, so the week closes almost 20 cases above. In the capital, the rate stands at 78.5 cases; so the weekly increase is half a point higher than in the province as a whole.
-The number of infections is already close to two hundred per day, in its continuous increase. This Friday there are 171 new positives detected by diagnostic tests of active infection (PDIA) that the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Government has notified in its daily balance. It is the Andalusian province with the most reported infections, closely followed by Seville (160), with almost a hundred new positives more than the next in the statistics (Huelva, 81).
-Despite the fact that the incidence and the number of infections have been increasing, this Friday there are no deaths in the province, so the statistics still reflect 2,003 deaths since the first for this reason occurred in March 2020.
-However, as far as healthcare pressure is concerned, the data are bittersweet. On the one hand, Malaga is still by far the province with the highest number of Covid patients admitted to its healthcare centers. One out of every three bedridden patients in Andalusia is in this province. This Friday six more patients have been admitted to hospitals in Malaga with coronavirus, despite this the number of occupied beds has been reduced by five units, to 69 occupied of the 204 in the whole community.
-Regarding the Intensive Care Units (ICU), the figures are more discouraging, 17 patients remain under this care in Malaga, almost half of the 40 registered in Andalusia. In addition, despite there being no new direct admissions to the ICU, there are two more ICU beds occupied in the province. There are more ICU patients in Malaga than total admissions in Huelva (14) and Cadiz (7) and the figure is close to the total number of bedridden in Almeria (19), Cordoba (20), Granada (21), Jaen (25) and Seville (29).

-Reported this Friday, November 19, 15 new infected by coronavirus in the Axarquia in the last 24 hours, according to data from the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA). It is the highest figure of the whole week, after the 11 cases of yesterday Thursday, the 14 of Wednesday, the 13 of Tuesday and the 14 of Monday. In total, 67 infections have been confirmed this week, which is an increase with respect to the 40 positives detected last week and the 45 of two weeks ago. This is the highest figure since the week of September 20-24, when 82 infections were recorded during that period.
-The positive note continues to be that one more day there are no deaths in the region because of the virus, while this Friday have been added to 12 other people recovered from the disease.
-With regard to new positives in the last 24 hours, have been reported: 7 in Rincon de la Victoria; 2 in Nerja and Periana; and 1 in Velez-Malaga, Torrox, Benamocarra and Macharaviaya.
-As for the persons who have overcome the disease, the following have been reported: 5 in Vélez-Málaga; 3 in Frigiliana; and 1 in Rincón de la Victoria, Nerja, Torrox and Almáchar.
-The incidence in the Axarquia Health District (which includes Casabermeja) is at 44.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 1.7 points less than yesterday Thursday (45.8) and 3 points above a week ago (41.1). For its part, in the Health District of Malaga (to which belong Rincon de la Victoria, Macharaviaya, Moclinejo and Totalan, in addition to Malaga capital and Almogia) the incidence is 76.6 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 7.3 points more than Thursday (69.3) and 19.9 points above a week ago (56.7).

New lava overflow in the La Palma volcano: Itahiza Domínguez, a seismologist at the National Geographic Institute (IGN), reports a new lava overflow in the volcano of La Palma in the afternoon of this Friday.

Spanish Politics- Propaganda at Work on Social Media- The Twitter bot network supporting Spain’s Socialist Party and insulting journalists: During the first 16 days of November, around 20 or so coordinated Twitter accounts described Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez as “handsome” 100 times and “gorgeous” another 39 times. It’s a curious anecdote, and may have gone unnoticed had the same accounts not compulsively insulted the leader of Spain’s main opposition Popular Party (PP), Pablo Casado, on the same social network. “Corrupt,” “miserable,” “you’re disgusting,” were the comments posted under the conservative politician’s tweets more than 400 times in the last 10 weeks.
Also targeted by this clutch of accounts were journalists covering the Socialist Party (PSOE), which is led by Sánchez, or the coalition government, which is run by the latter party along with junior partner Unidas Podemos. “You have fewer sources in the PSOE than I have in the KGB,” or “salmon face” were a few of the comments aimed at reporters.
The repeated phrases, spelling errors, patterns in terms of the time of publication and the tool used to post the tweets are all clear evidence of coordination. The closure of the accounts by Twitter, after EL PAÍS raised the alarm, is the confirmation.

They were all ordered to isolate in the hotel as per protocol. But when health officials visited the hotel on Wednesday, seven of the Dutch tourists had managed to escape from quarantine
The head of health in Extremadura, Jose Maria Vergeles, announced that international health authorities had been alerted because “this represents a problem for public health”. Full article:

MALAGA

First fixed radars installed on Malaga’s 30km/h roads: As confirmed by Malaga City Council, they have already started the installation of the network of fixed radars in the city. They will be deployed along the main 50km of arteries around the city, to control that drivers do not exceed 30 km/h. Two of these units are already in place, but are not yet operational. Both are located on Avenida Juan Sebastian Elcano. One is next to the Hotel Elcano, and the other is installed near the old Bobby Logan nightclub. They both point in the direction of the city centre. More of these boxes are in line to be fixed in place around the city.
Adding to these two new fixed radars, the Malaga Local Police have been supplied with two new portable devices. Already in the city, there are fixed kinemometers installed in Calles Pacifico and Andalucia, plus on Avenidas Calle Valle-Inclan, and Pintor Sorolla. Photo:Instagram

Pretzel Logic? Malaga to avoid Christmas light crowds by leaving show times unannounced: The lights will be switched on on 26 November at 7pm. The city council announced this Thursday that the Christmas lighting on Calle Larios will include music and light shows but without a previously announced timetable. “The schedule for the shows is not going to be announced, but people will be able to come from seven to ten,” said Porras, who justified this measure by saying that it avoids large crowds of people gathering.
Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/malaga/malaga-city/malaga-avoid-larios-20211119115734-nt.html
(Seems to me this invites larger crowds as people gather waiting for shows. If people knew the times of the shows, they wouldn’t need to hang around in a crowd waiting. -Ed.)

Austria infuriates many with manditory vax and full lockdown as Germany warns it may follow suit: Austria will become the first country in western Europe to reimpose a full COVID-19 lockdown, it said on Friday as neighbouring Germany warned it may follow suit, sending shivers through financial markets worried about the economic fallout.
Austria said it in addition to lockdown it would require the whole population to be vaccinated from Feb. 1. Both decisions infuriated many in a country where scepticism about state mandates affecting individual freedoms runs high.
Roughly two-thirds of those eligible in Austria are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the lowest rates in western Europe. Its infections are among the highest in Europe, with a seven-day incidence of 991 per 100,000 people.
“We have not succeeded in convincing enough people to get vaccinated,” Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg told a news conference, saying the lockdown would start on Monday and the requirement to be vaccinated on Feb. 1.

Why the Covid-19 vaccines do not stop the virus from circulating:
Covid-19 vaccines prevent hospitalizations and death from the disease in more than 90% of cases, but they do not stop the transmission of the virus. That’s why cases among the vaccinated are to be expected: a person who has been fully immunized can still contract SARS-CoV-2 and spread it to others, even if they too are vaccinated.
In Spain, contagions have been rising despite the fact that 79% of the population is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. According to the latest Health Ministry report, released Thursday evening, the 14-day incidence rate has jumped to 104 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, up eight points since Wednesday. This is the first time the data point has risen above 100 cases in two months.

Windows 11 Users Complain of Slow Performance:
-There’s good news ahead for Windows 11 users, especially if the upgrade has left you with a sluggish system. Microsoft is promising that fixes and updates are on the way next year that will improve the performance of the operating system, which has received numerous complaints from Windows fans.
-“Performance will be an area of focus for us in 2022,” Microsoft’s Windows developer team wrote in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) post as reported by TechRadar, noting that improving the responsiveness of Windows is a priority for the company.
-Though stuttering performance may be an embarrassing issue for Microsoft’s latest operating system, there are other issues affecting Windows 11 as well. Memory leaks, compatibility issues, lack of customization options, and a jarring look with old UI elements mixed with Windows 11’s latest experience round out some of the top complaints we’ve heard about the OS.
-Microsoft also made headlines ahead of Windows 11’s rollout with its decision to limit upgrade eligibility to newer hardware. If you’re on the fence about upgrading to Windows 11, provided your machine is compatible with the latest operating system, you’ll need to weigh your options at this time, especially given the performance-plaguing bugs still out there.

IBM unveils the Eagle, the quantum processor set to revolutionize computing: The development of quantum computing is set to revolutionize computing as we know it, by exponentially increasing processing power. The latest advance in the field has come from IBM, which unveiled the Eagle processor this week. Boasting 127 qubits (quantum bits) of quantum power, it doubles the power of China’s Zuchongzhi processor, previously the world’s most advanced.
-How powerful is that? IBM’s Eagle processor has the capacity to smash the record set by the Zuchonhzhi processor created by engineers at China’s University of Science and Technology and Tsinghua University in Beijing, which managed in three minutes to solve a problem of random number generation that would have taken other supercomputers 600 million years. The IBM processor is “a key milestone on the path towards practical quantum computation,” said Zaira Nazario, technical manager of Quantum Computing Theory and Applications at the US company, in a video call.
