Bio Beach Club- El Morche:
– Have you ever enjoyed the luxury of tasting a freshly homemade pesto sauce? If you like mild sauces, this one may not be for you! But if you delight in a spirited but subtle explosion of garlic, parsley, and pine nuts, then you are in for a treat; you need to try The Bio Beach Restaurant’s delectable one. As wine connoisseurs will describe a vintage wine, I dare affirm that the bouquet of this emerald combination is absolutely irresistible; it’s a must-try! If really hungry, you may opt for the pesto Tallarines del Mar, the main course with fresh and fragrant seafood. Should you prefer a lighter bite, try a delish tapa to be shared with friends by selecting the Tostadas verdes complemented with mozzarella and creamy fresh avocado, resting on a bed of crunchy greens. See the radiant dish attached.
– The Bio Beach lectures are taking a pause for the summer. We’ll resume in September with a food presentation on Wed. Sept. 14th at 11am. These programmes are free, just order refreshments. We belong to U3A, (http://www.u3aaxarquia.com/) and these social, educational, and stimulating mornings are presented in an effort to attract more members.

SPAIN

The BOE publishes the new package of anti-crisis measures approved by the government: {Translation} 26/06/2022 11:02
– The Official State Gazette (BOE) has published this Sunday the royal decree-law adopting and extending the measures to respond to the economic and social consequences of the war in Ukraine, to deal with situations of vulnerability and for the recovery of the island of La Palma.
– The royal decree-law will come into force on Monday, and will run until 31 December.
– With regard to the reduction in the price of the transport season ticket, from 1 September a 50% reduction in the price of monthly season tickets will be established for state companies, such as Renfe, and 30% for regional and local companies, although the royal decree-law specifies that this is a voluntary discount for autonomous communities and local councils, as they are the ones that have the powers. The Autonomous Regions and local authorities that decide to implement this rebate will be able to collect the aid, estimated at 200 million euros in total. They can also extend the 30% discount to 50% if they so wish, but they must make up the difference with their own resources. For these subsidies, the return ticket is excluded. In addition, in the case of annual travel passes purchased prior to the entry into force of the royal decree, the competent administration may decide whether to set up a system to allow the user to receive a refund of the proportional part corresponding to 30% of the four-month period.
– The BOE also includes a 15% increase in non-contributory retirement and disability pensions, which means an increase of 60 euros per month (360 euros by the end of the year). It also details the maintenance of the 15% increase in the Minimum Vital Income approved in March.
200-EURO CHEQUE
– With regard to the 200-euro cheque for people living in households with incomes of less than 14,000 euros, the royal decree-law specifies that it may be applied for by wage earners, the self-employed and the unemployed, but not by pensioners or beneficiaries of the IMV. It also indicates that the income of less than 14,000 euros must correspond to the sum of the members of the cohabitation unit, which will be made up of the people who were living with the applicant on 1 January 2022 with a relationship of kinship or family, or foster family up to the third degree from two years earlier. For this aid, it is also a requirement that the assets of the cohabitation unit do not exceed 43,196.4 euros, without taking into account the habitual residence. The aid, which will be managed by the Tax Agency, can be applied for until 30 September. According to government estimates, it could benefit 2.7 million people.
LOWERING OF VAT ON ELECTRICITY
– On the other hand, VAT on electricity bills will be reduced from 10% to 5%, which will be applied to consumers, companies or individuals, with a contracted power of up to 10 kilowatts. It will also remain at 5% until the end of the year, as long as the price on the wholesale market remains above 45 euros per megawatt/hour. Thus, if it falls below this amount, the reduction will cease to apply in general, but will be maintained for severely vulnerable users and those at risk of exclusion.
– In addition, the royal decree-law includes an extension of the measure consisting of the application of the 0.5% tax rate on the Special Tax on Electricity, and the extension of the temporary suspension of the Tax on the value of electricity production.
– In the area of fuels, the reduction of 20 cents per litre of fuel is also maintained until the end of the year. The price of a cylinder of butane, which after the latest revision is now 19.55 euros, has also been frozen.
– With the aim of reinforcing protection for the most vulnerable groups, the prohibition on suspending the energy supply, the cap on rent increases and the fact that the increase in energy costs cannot be grounds for dismissal in companies that depend on the Administration are maintained.
– Similarly, the deferral of Social Security contributions is extended to September, direct aid to the gas-intensive industry is approved, drought aid is extended and aid is extended to those affected by the eruption of the ‘Cumbre Vieja’ volcano. In addition, the reduced VAT rate of 4% on surgical masks was extended.

Transport Strike UPDATE- Self-employed hauliers divided over strike action from 4 July: {Translation} 26-06-2022 20:00
– The National Platform in Defence of Transport had called this morning its assemblies all over Spain to decide whether to resume the sector’s strikes on 4 July. The overall result of the votes has not been made public, although it is closer than expected, according to some results that are already known. The hauliers from Extremadura, for example, voted to resume the stoppages on 4 July if the Ministry of Transport does not comply with what has been agreed, especially with the inclusion by law of the prohibition of working at a loss before the end of this month. In this case the “yes” to strike was overwhelming: 96 votes in favour and 10 against.
– In the case of the Aragonese delegation, like the Asturian delegation, the almost unanimous decision was not to stop the trucks “for the moment” until it is seen if the Ministry of Transport complies with the agreement. In Andalusia, there was total division: Jaén and Cádiz, in favour of “yes”, and “no” in Córdoba and Sevilla Sur, according to Canal Sur.
– In Galicia, 80% of Lugo hauliers voted in favour of resuming the strike they suspended on 2 April.
– The trickle of results leaves all options open regarding the possible reactivation of the road transport strike that was suspended in April. However, the votes were more of a threat, because the hauliers themselves left a last loophole open until Thursday 30 June. Manuel Espinosa, the Cadiz delegate of the Plataforma de Transportistas, assured that it is almost better not to work and that they no longer trust the government. The fact that there is a margin until Thursday has led several assemblies to delay their decision until Thursday. The spokesman for the Aragonese platform, Emilio Seco, explained. “Before we were treated as criminals and terrorists, and now we have a seat at the dialogue table,” he said during the assembly.
– The platform, which acts outside the majority employers’ organisation, the National Transport Committee, which they accuse of being made up of “the managers of the big transport operators, who are mainly to blame for the situations of economic and labour abuse”, asks the Executive to “take responsibility so that it acts urgently and avoids the collapse that will necessarily occur in the transport sector”. After the meeting on the 16th at the Ministry, the Platform’s board of directors explained that, given the lack of knowledge of the exact date on which the law that will allow them to work without losses will be ready, “it is impossible for us to consider maintaining our activity in the coming months”.

Editor’s Note: Madrid was flooded with various protests this weekend. Far too much for me to cover here. While things are calm down here, it’s easy to forget that in the north things are shaping up for a hot protest season. Here’s the short list.
– Anti-NATO march through Madrid for peace and against militarisation: {Translation, summary} 26/06/2022 16:27
Several thousand people – 2,200 according to the Government Delegation and 30,000 according to the organisation – from a large number of different left-wing groups marched through Madrid this lunchtime to protest against NATO, on the eve of the summit of the Atlantic alliance in the Spanish capital. Under the slogan ‘ ‘No a las guerras. No a la NATO. Por la paz.’ (No to wars. No to NATO. For peace), the procession travelled the route between Atocha and Plaza de España, reviving the chants of the demonstrations of the 1980s against the military organisation, such as “bases out”, without any incidents occurring.

Extinguished- the fire of Pujerra that burned nearly 5,000 acres after almost three weeks: {Translation, summary} After almost three weeks, this Sunday evening, at 20:00 hours, the Infoca has extinguished the Pujerra fire that has devastated almost 5,000 hectares and in which around 3,500 professionals have participated.

Malaga is the city most affected by the strike of Ryanair, with 20 flights cancelled on the third day: {Translation} 26/06/2022 17:53
– Malaga-Costa del Sol airport is the airport most affected this Sunday by the Ryanair strike, with a total of 20 flights cancelled to or from this base, and up to six delayed departures.
– As reported by USO, the third day of strike by Ryanair cabin crew (TCP) has left, for the moment, 42 flights cancelled with arrival or departure at the Spanish airports where the airline operates, and a total of 58 departures have been delayed.
– The unions USO and Sitcpla called this strike for 24, 25, 26 and 30 June and 1 and 2 July, at the airline’s ten bases in Spain – Madrid, Malaga, Seville, Alicante, Valencia, Barcelona, Girona, Santiago de Compostela, Ibiza and Palma de Mallorca.
Delayed flights
– Thus, of the 42 cancellations this Saturday, ten of them were departing from Malaga airport and another ten had their destination in the capital of Malaga. Here, in addition, six flights were delayed.
– In Andalusia, Seville airport has also been affected this Sunday, but to a lesser extent, as there are no cancellations and only six delayed departures, according to the latest data provided by the union.
– Malaga airport, together with Barcelona El Prat and Palma de Mallorca, is the most affected airport in the strike, which also coincides with strikes in Portugal, Belgium and France.

Irish Archaeologist Identifies Over 3,000-Year-Old Bronze-Age Fortress in Galway Park:
– An archaeologist in Galway, Ireland, discovered a large Bronze Age fortress on a limestone table, surrounded by seasonal lakes, at Coole Park, Ireland, earlier this week, according to television and radio broadcaster RTÉ. The site was previously known, but its antiquity has been in question until now. Coole Park, the land on which the fortress sits, is currently a nature preserve. The turloughs, or seasonal lakes, are unique to areas of Ireland west of the River Shannon.
– The fortress, dating between 800 and 1200 BCE, is unique in its use of turloughs, which would have drained and filled with water based on the weather and time of year. These turloughs would have been used strategically as a defense mechanism against outside invaders. At roughly 1,312 by 328 feet, the structure could have housed a couple hundred people at any given time. Photo: RTÉNews.

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.

Covid Malaga- Rebound of spread of Covid in Malaga, with 1,196 cases: {Translation} 24 Junio, 2022 16:58
– The province of Malaga has registered 1,196 cases of Covid in the last three days, according to data provided on Friday by the Ministry of Health of the Andalusian Regional Government. This is almost a quarter of all the infections detected in the region in recent days.

SPAIN

Another case of the famous Nancy Pelosi Rule, “we have to pass the law so we can see what’s in it”- Spain’s President Sanchez announces anti-crisis measures extended to December: {Translation}
– The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, announced this Friday that the decree with the measures to deal with the economic consequences of the invasion of Ukraine and the rise in inflation that will be approved tomorrow by an extraordinary Council of Ministers will be extended until 31 December, and will not be renewed for a further three months as initially announced.
– Sánchez, who appeared in Brussels at the end of the European Council, assured that the measures to be included in the decree, which he did not wish to advance, are “coherent” with what has been approved so far, supports particularly vulnerable sectors and, thirdly, will include “selective” reductions in certain taxes.
– The head of the Executive, who himself will give an account of the decree at the end of the Council of Ministers meeting (only after it has been passed), said that the measures will include aid for families, industry and companies so that they can protect themselves from rising prices.
– “We know that inflation is high, but this government knows very well who it governs for, we know very well that there are other sectors that want to maintain the status quo and privileges, but this government is not going to do it, we know who we govern for and we govern to protect families who have become much more vulnerable as a result of the rise in the cost of living,” Sánchez stressed.
– The President of the Government stated that the economic situation of the entire EU has been “damaged” as a result of the war, which has led to a rise in energy and food prices, which is weighing down the cost of living for citizens. He also defended once again the “structural” reform of the electricity market in Europe and the decoupling of the price of gas from electricity, as well as the promotion of a gas cap on the entire European energy market. He pointed out that as soon as the gas cap was put in place in the Iberian market, the evolution of the price in Spain is “substantially” lower than in the spot market.

USA

U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade abortion rights landmark: The justices, in the ruling written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, held that the Roe decision that allowed abortions performed before a fetus would be viable outside the womb – between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy – was wrongly decided because the U.S. Constitution makes no specific mention of abortion rights. By erasing abortion as a constitutional right, the ruling restored the ability of states to ban it, fundamentally altering America’s landscape on the issue of reproductive rights. Twenty-six states are either certain or considered likely to ban abortion. Full article: https://www.reuters.com/world/us/us-supreme-court-overturns-abortion-rights-landmark-2022-06-24/

SATURDAY RECIPE

Salt Cured Egg Yolks: Cured egg yolks have all the richness of fine cheese, along with a salty tang that comes from the curing process. They’re equally at home finely grated on top of pasta or topping a tasty dessert.
-Salt cured egg yolks are preserved with salt, obviously, but that’s not the end of the story. What if I told you that there was a tiny creature at work inside these tasty orbs of flavor? The same tiny creature that’s responsible for salami, sauerkraut, and yogurt?
– No, you say? Too good to be true? And yet, here we are, with perfectly preserved pro-biotic egg yolks for the tasting. A high salt environment inhibits certain spoiling bacteria, which allows other desirable cultures to dominate.
– It’s not that salt prevents anything from living in the yolks, it’s just that it slows the growth of some types of bacteria until the others can take over and release lactic acid. It’s the lactic acid that actually preserves the food, and the salt just facilitated the whole thing. Good work Lactobacillus!
– The whole adventure starts with egg yolks nestled into tiny cradles of salt. Pour about 1/2 inch of salt into a nonreactive container, like a glass or stoneware baking dish… See the full recipe here with photos of each step: https://practicalselfreliance.com/salt-cured-egg-yolks/

SPAIN

Gasoline and diesel set new all-time record highs: {Translation}
– The average price of petrol and diesel in Spain has set a new all-time high and is now above two euros per litre; moreover, in both cases it has already ‘eaten up’ the entire subsidy of 20 cents per litre that came into force on 1 April.
– Specifically, the average price of a litre of petrol this week stood at 2.141 euros, after registering an increase of 1.13% compared to seven days ago.
– This average price includes taxes, but does not reflect the discount of at least 20 cents per litre that came into effect on 1 April, as there are higher discounts, depending on the oil company and promotions for loyal customers.
– Taking this subsidy into account, the price of a litre of petrol would thus already be almost 12 cents more expensive than in the last week of March (1.818 euros), before the discount began to be applied, so that the increase in the price of this fuel since then has fully absorbed the aid.
– In the case of diesel, the average price per litre has risen by 3.64% in the last week, to exceed the two euro mark for the second week in a row (2.076 euros). Thus, when applying the 20 cents per litre reduction, the price would be around three cents higher than the price at the end of March (1.837 euros per litre).
– Compared to the same week a year ago, the average price of a litre of petrol has risen by 55.82%, while diesel is 67.68% more expensive, although without taking into account the rebate currently in force.

TORRE DEL MAR

Pérez Atencia indicated that “it is the ‘Fiesta de la Familia’, organized by Teatro La Carpa, through its group La Inclusiva. An activity focused on boys and girls who will have this Sunday an end-of-year party, taking advantage of the fact that this June 24 classes end in the schools of the municipality.

– Astola y Ratón will perform on 13 July to offer the public the joint work of two of the standard-bearers of fundamental Andalusian rock bands, Alejandro Astola and Diego Pozo el Ratón.
– The week ends with Pedro el Granaíno on the 14th of July with Granaíno Jondo, a flamenco recital where the ‘jondura y el quejó’ of his throat merges with the guitar of Antonio Luque Espejo Patrocinio Hijo.
– The last week opens with the young cantaora María Terremoto. Belonging to one of the most important flamenco sagas, she has managed to give a new air to traditional cante without renouncing purity. Her powerful and powerful voice will be accompanied by a guitar and two hand claps.
– On 20 July, Martirio and the brilliant guitarist Raúl Rodríguez will perform a concert in Travesía in which they will review the artist’s hits.
– Finally, the cycle will be closed by Mario Díaz on the 21st of July with Gira mapamundi to premiere the Cordovan musician’s new record ‘Fullería Volumen I’, the first release of the guitarist’s adventurous and eclectic spirit.
– All the performances will take place at 10 pm in the central courtyard of the Museum of Málaga. Tickets, priced at 15 euros per seat, are on sale online only at http://www.musicaymuseos.es.

The National Police warning of attack by cybercriminals to clients of Unicaja in Vélez-Málaga: {Translation, summary}
– The National Police has alerted traders and businessmen of attacks by cybercriminals on Unicaja customers in Vélez-Málaga. The entity itself has recalled that it never sends messages to the mobile phone with urgent notifications to be resolved through a link. The National Police have pointed out that “in recent days Unicaja customers have been suffering a sophisticated attack by cybercriminals with the aim of defrauding them”, adding that it should be borne in mind that “the attack referred to could be carried out by pretending to be sent from any other bank or public institution”.
– Also recently, the National Institute of Cybersecurity (Incibe) detected a campaign of sending fraudulent SMS and e-mails impersonating the financial institution Unicaja Banco or Liberbank to steal bank details. The aim is to get customers to access a form and provide their personal details and bank codes. These emails use the excuse of unauthorised access to their online account to get users to verify their credentials.

MEPs Give Final Nod to EU COVID Certificate, But Don’t Want It to Be Used for “Discriminatory Restrictions to Free Movement”:
– Over 400 Members of the European Union’s Parliament have shown their full support for the extension of the EU Digital COVID Certificate for another 12 months, for both EU citizens and third-country nationals, at a plenary meeting held today, on June 23.
– In a press release issued today, June 23, the Parliament has endorsed the deal with the Member States to prolong the legal framework of the EU Digital COVID Certificate, and the same has been supported by 453 members, while 119 were against, and 19 abstained for keeping the framework in place for EU citizens. Regarding keeping the scheme in place for third-country nationals, 454 voted in favour, 112 against, and 20 abstentions.
– While the existing scheme was set to expire a week later, on June 30, the newly approved one will remain effective until June 2023. However, the new test enables the EU Commission to put the scheme to an end after six months if the same is no longer deemed necessary.

TECH

Creepy Tech- Alexa will be able to speak with the voice of a deceased family member: Amazon revealed that it has developed a way for its Alexa voice assistant to replicate the speech of a dead relative, based on less than a minute of recorded audio of the original person.
– Amazon has already developed voice-synthesizing tech to let Alexa mimic the voices of celebrities, including Shaquille O’Neal and Melissa McCarthy. But that has previously required an individual to record dozens of hours of audio. Amazon now has developed a way to replicate a voice in high quality using less than one minute of recorded speech, which the company’s engineers were able to do “by framing the problem as a voice-conversion task, and not a speech-generation task,” according to Prasad.
– In introducing the demo, Prasad said that the ability for Alexa’s AI to emulate the speech of a deceased relative can represent a way to preserve the memory of a loved one who has died. “We are unquestionably living in the golden era of AI, where our dreams and science fiction are becoming a reality,” he said.

Computer Workers On Strike Thursday: In support of my fellow computer technicians, DoctorLaptop (not DigameXtra) will be closed this Thursday.
“Society continues to think that computer engineers are very well-paid personnel due to their high qualifications. Nothing is further from reality”. “We have at least ten professional categories below the minimum wage, which is unsustainable in a highly qualified sector and with companies that make great profits,” the trade union centrals have warned as they go on strike Thursday demanding higher wages and shorter hours.

Capitán Mercury- A Queen Tribute At Sala Superstar Fuengirola:
Friday, 22July 9pm
Sala Superstar, Calle Jacinto Benavente s/n, Fuengirola
Close your eyes and relive the universal anthems and power ballads that were played in the crowded macro festivals and football stadiums of the 70s and 80s. Thrill to We Are the Champions and I Want to Break Free, sing along to We Will Rock You or Bohemian Rhapsody and groove to Another One Bits The Dust. Doing a good Queen tribute is an arduous task. And no wonder: it’s not easy to pay tribute to a legend with the oldest fan club in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. But CAPTAIN MERCURY has done it: this incredible show manages to capture both the original sound and the highly personal style and staging that catapulted Queen to international fame. This is a unique opportunity to experience the full force, emotion and musical genius of Queen at the height of their career.

SPAIN

Spain is to cut IVA tax on electricity bills from 10% to 5%:
Prime minister Pedro Sánchez announced this Wednesday morning that the measure will be approved at an extraordinary meeting of the Cabinet on Saturday. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/spain/spain-electricity-bills-iva-tax-cut20220622103041-nt-20220622104525-nt.html

 

The food chain trembles before the possible carrier strike- “We cannot afford another strike”: The threat of a new strike in freight transport looms over the agricultural sector, hotels and restaurants. Organizations such as Asaja, Coag, Anged, Aecoc and Hospitality of Spain have sent a statement this Wednesday in which they warn that Spain “cannot afford a new strike in the road transport sector” and warn of the “serious consequences” it would have a new protest on companies and consumers. Agri-food companies have recalled that they provide an “essential service” that was recognized during the pandemic and that these days they are in the middle of the summer fruit campaign. For this reason, a stoppage of transport in these circumstances would force a large part of the annual production of perishable food to be thrown away.
– The agri-food sector also recalls that it is making a great effort to affect the rise in prices as little as possible to the consumer and that it has not yet recovered from the stoppages carried out by carriers in March. For this reason, from the industry they have demanded that the entire transport sector not “subject society to a new threat” and that they take into account the difficult situation in which the sector finds itself. The small carriers have warned that they can resume the protests next month if the Government does not approve before June 30 the law that articulates that truck drivers cannot work below cost. Something that almost 100% will not happen, since the transport representatives and the ministry of the branch work with a horizon of July 31 to close the text. The National Platform for the Defense of Transport, the organizer of these protests, will vote on June 26 in an assembly to resume the protests.

COSTA DEL SOL

Hotel occupancy in June reveals significant divide- ranging from a very weak 50% up to an enthusiastic 89%: {Translation}
– The Association of Hoteliers Association of the Costa del Sol (Aehcos) forecasts that this June will close with a hotel occupancy rate of 81.80%, two points below that achieved in the same month of 2019.
– By municipalities, Malaga city leads the occupancy rate in June, reaching 88.55%.
– Nerja, with an occupancy rate of 83.90%, is also showing good figures. It is followed by Benalmádena, with 83.81%; the central and western Axarquía, with 81.81% and Fuengirola with 80.42%.
– But other municipalities are only half full, as is the case of Antequera, which, if the forecasts do not change due to last minute bookings, has an occupancy rate of approximately 50%. And Frigiliana-Torrox, around 60% occupancy. Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiaplus.es/nerja-y-la-axarquia-arrojan-buenos-datos-de-ocupacion-hotelera-en-junio-superando-el-80/

Afghanistan earthquake kills at least 1,000, toll expected to rise:
The death toll from an earthquake in Afghanistan on Wednesday hit 1,000, disaster management officials said, with more than 600 injured and the toll expected to grow as information trickles in from remote mountain villages. Houses were reduced to rubble and bodies swathed in blankets lay on the ground after the magnitude 6.1 earthquake, photographs on Afghan media showed. Wednesday’s quake was the deadliest in Afghanistan since 2002. It struck about 44 km (27 miles) from the southeastern city of Khost, near the border with Pakistan, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. Photo: Twitter/ToloNews.

Wanted: Driver. Am looking for a driver to collect a lady from a Nerja Care Home on Friday mornings about 11 am to take into Nerja and collect her later that day and return her to the Care Home. The driver needs to be able to put the wheelchair in the boot and take it out again when she arrives in Nerja. We normally take a taxi to and from Nerja but last Friday we had to wait over an hour to get a taxi so we would rather have somebody reliable and able to take us into Nerja at 11 am on a Friday.
The normal taxi fare is around €8 each way but we are willing to pay €10 for each trip. Maybe somebody can help? Thank you, Angela, Torrox Costa

Halting Erosion Using Vetiver Grass from Vetiver Spain:
Vetiver Grass is a fast growing non-invasive clumping grass that grows to 2 metres in height. It has a root system that grows to 3-4 metres deep and they are very strong.
The National Geographic Magazine has called them “Roots of Steel”.
Once Vetiver is established it is drought resistant.
We are located in Sayalonga and we can plant all year round but February and March are the best months to plant Vetiver. Vetiver loves the heat of a long summer to get established.
Decomposing Vetiver used as a mulch, improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away as it is a natural insect repellent. It is in the same family as Lemon Grass, which we also carry.
Vetiver also is a nutritious and replenishable animal feed. Horses, cattle, and pigs love it.
We use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive Ornamental hedge.
To see more photos and videos please visit our DATA storage site located at http://www.vetiverspain.org.

SPAIN

The price of electricity continues to rise – tomorrow it will exceed 282 euros per MWh on average: {Translation}
The average electricity price for today, Wednesday 22/6, will be 282.12 euros per megawatt hour (MWh), the highest figure since 11 March (284.58 euros). Tomorrow’s price is the result of adding the 152.75 euros per MWh of the wholesale market auction with the capped gas and the 129.39 euros of compensation to gas companies for the mechanism put in place by the government last week that limits the cost of gas used in electricity generation to 40 euros per MWh. The price increase is mainly due to the greater participation of gas combined cycle plants in the generation mix to the detriment of renewables due to the lack of wind.

SPACE

Startled by bright lights in the sky in the early hours of yesterday morning? Don’t worry, there is a simple explanation:
– José María Madiedo, of the Andalusian Institute of Astrophysics, has now said the phenomenon occurred as a result of one of the phases of the Chang Zheng 2F rocket re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere. The CZ-2F was launched by the Chinese Space Agency (CNSA) on 5 June as part of the Shenzhou 14 mission.
– Madiedo explained that the white lights were a row of fireballs which were visible when the upper part of the rocket re-entered the atmosphere, breaking into multiple fragments which became incandescent as a result of the friction as they did so. Every one of those fragments created a fireball. Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/andalucia/chinese-space-agency-mission-20220621095958-nt.html & VIDEO LINK

Computer Workers On Strike Thursday: In support of my fellow computer technicians, DoctorLaptop will be closed this Thursday.
“Society continues to think that computer engineers are very well-paid personnel due to their high qualifications. Nothing is further from reality”. “We have at least ten professional categories below the minimum wage, which is unsustainable in a highly qualified sector and with companies that make great profits,” the trade union centrals have warned as they go on strike Thursday demanding higher wages and shorter hours.

Today is Summer Solstice 2022- The First Day of Summer:
In 2022, the June solstice occurs on Tuesday, June 21, marking the astronomical first day of summer.
In the Northern Hemisphere, the June solstice (aka summer solstice) occurs when the Sun travels along its northernmost path in the sky. This marks the astronomical start of summer in the northern half of the globe. (In the Southern Hemisphere, it’s the opposite: the June solstice marks the astronomical start of winter, when the Sun is at its lowest point in the sky.) This is the longest day and shortest night of the calendar year. (By longest “day,” we mean the longest period of sunlight hours.) On the day of the June solstice, the Northern Hemisphere receives sunlight at the most direct angle of the year. Full article: https://www.almanac.com/content/first-day-summer-summer-solstice

However, she has recognized that, “assuming a scenario of more inflation for a longer time”, due to the latest data on the evolution of oil or gas after the supply cuts from Russia to Europe.

Algeria ignores EU warnings supporting Government of Pedro Sánchez and his deals with Morocco that negate long term agreements Spain had with Algeria regarding the Sahara independence movement – serious new retaliations by the Algerian government against Spain: {Translation, summary}
– Algerians accuse Pedro Sánchez’s government: “What he has done with the Sahara is a betrayal”. (Quote from https://sevilla.abc.es/espana/abci-argelinos-acusan-gobierno-pedro-sanchez-hecho-sahara-traicion-202206190128_noticia.html)
– On Sunday, the Algerian tourism ministry ordered its travel agencies to cut off relations with Spain. The ministry sent out a circular of just three lines in which it points out that, “in the framework of the implementation of the decision of the country’s high authorities to suspend the friendship treaty signed on 8 October 2002, you are requested to immediately suspend all working relations with this country”.
– It also stressed in the communiqué that “all working relations with this country are requested to be suspended immediately”. This decision which, in the context of the suspension on 8 June of the Treaty of Cooperation and Friendship, is in addition to the suspension of direct debits with Spanish companies.
– According to Algerian media, this suspension of relations between travel agencies and Spain is due to the holding of the first Morocco-Spain investment forum in Dakhla, Western Sahara. This meeting is intended to “promote investment in this region”.

ANDALUCIA

PPs Juanma Moreno- “We have opened the way to regroup the centre-right in the centre lane”: {Translation, summary}
– The PP candidate and winner of the Andalusian elections, Juanma Moreno, considers that the absolute majority obtained allows them to open “a way to regroup the centre-right” through the “central lane”, leaving aside other “more uncomfortable” options and with “a free hand” against parties such as Vox.
– Moreno has explained that in the last days of the campaign he was already handling data that brought him close to an absolute majority, but not so resounding as to win 58 seats, and has guaranteed that he will govern without “losing his head” and maintaining dialogue “with everyone”.
– He admitted on Cope and Onda Cero that the Andalusian elections have an important national background, since the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, “today has a much bigger problem than he had before yesterday” because “doubts and cracks are opening up” in the PSOE and the Andalusian result “is going to weigh” on that party.
– The Andalusian president has expressed his conviction that Sánchez will try to hold out “until the end”, but “if things continue in this cascade” he would not be surprised if he were to renounce his candidacy in the general elections: “These elections have been in Andalusian terms, but everyone knows that there was also a desire to give Sánchez a red card”, he said.
– In addition, he believes that the barons will “mark distances” with Sánchez with a view to the next regional elections, because “many will not want his presence” in their territories.
– He admitted that he sees Ciudadanos already “on the verge of extinction” after being left out of the Andalusian Parliament and has left the door open to having some of its councillors in the next government, in which not all its members will have PP affiliation.

AXARQUIA

The Axarquia region voted overwhelmingly for the Popular Party (PP) in the elections in Andalucia: {Translation, summary}
– The PP won in 26 of the 31 municipalities of the Axarquia.
– The Socialist Party has only withstood the electoral debacle in the towns of Alfarnate, Almáchar, Benamargosa, El Borge and Iznate and even so, in these five municipalities it has lost votes compared to 2018.
– In Vélez-Málaga alone, the PP has almost doubled its votes with respect to the 2018 Andalusian elections, going from 8,084 to 15,919 votes. In other words. 47.44% of the citizens of Vélez-Málaga voted for the PP in these elections.

EUROPE

France awakens to an emboldened Le Pen after far-right gains:
Le Pen’s National Rally party didn’t win the two rounds of voting in the parliamentary election, which ended Sunday. But it secured more than 10 times the seats it won five years ago. It was only a couple of months ago that Le Pen lost the presidential election to Macron. But now it was her turn to gloat, since she knows she can use the seats in the National Assembly to thwart Macron’s domestic agenda and even trigger a no-confidence vote.

TRAVEL NEWS

Ryanair Airline Strikes Update- Belgium, Portugal, France and Italy join Spain:
– In Spain, USO and Sitcpla have summoned Ryanair cabin crew (TCP) to six days of strike, which begin this week. The twenty-four hour stoppages start this Friday, the 24th, and extend to: June 25, 26 and 30 and July 1 and 2 at the ten bases of the Irish airline in the country.

– In Portugal and Belgium there are three days of called stoppages. The Belgian ACV, PULS and CNE unions and the Portuguese SNPVAC have called for the Ryanair crew to stop in those countries on June 24, 25 and 26.
– In France, the SNPNC union has called a strike on June 25 and 26 and, from Italy, UILTRASPORTI and FILT-CGIL have done so on June 25, in a single day. Full article: https://spainsnews.com/belgium-portugal-france-and-italy-join-spain/

TECH

Strike scheduled for Spanish computer consulting and technology companies- “They want minimum wages in a high-skilled sector”: {Translation, summary}
– “Society still thinks that computer scientists are highly paid because of their high qualifications. Nothing could be further from the truth”. Against this backdrop, the CCOO and UGT unions have announced the call for a partial strike, with two-hour stoppages on Thursday 23 June, in the computer consultancy and technology companies (ICT) sector, which employs half a million people. “We have at least ten professional categories below the minimum wage, which is unacceptable in a highly qualified sector with companies that make huge profits,” the trade union confederations warned.
– CCOO and UGT have also called several protests in front of the employers’ association and in front of large companies in the sector, such as the so-called Big Four (Deloitte, PwC, EY and KPMG), with the intention of pressuring the AEC to improve the conditions of the collective bargaining agreement. Above all, they are demanding a boost in salaries in the agreement, which in many categories are so low that they do not even reach the new SMI of one thousand euros gross per month, but they are also demanding more rights and improvements for professionals in an emerging and growing sector in the face of digitalisation.

Cambodian catches world’s largest recorded freshwater fish:
The world’s largest recorded freshwater fish, a giant stingray, has been caught in the Mekong River in Cambodia, according to scientists from the Southeast Asian nation and the United States. The stingray, captured on June 13, measured almost four meters (13 feet) from snout to tail and weighed slightly under 300 kilograms (660 pounds), according to a statement Monday by Wonders of the Mekong, a joint Cambodian-U.S. research project. The fish was released back into the river after examination and measurements were confirmed. 
The previous record for a freshwater fish was a 293-kilogram (646-pound) Mekong giant catfish, discovered in Thailand in 2005, the group said. Photo: Chhut Chheana/Wonders of the Mekong.

The Times- Every railway ticket office in England to be closed in new secret plan: The Government is planning to close every rail ticket office in England, leaving passengers to buy their tickets online, according to The Times. The move will save £500million a year and is reported to be ready to roll out from September. The paper says the rail industry has written a confidential strategy to phase out physical tickets, closing its almost 1,000 ticket offices in England. One in every eight tickets is still bought over the counter according to Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.

Germany to Burn More Coal: Germany’s economy minister said Sunday that the country will limit the use of natural gas for electricity production amid concerns about possible shortages caused by a cut in supplies from Russia.
– Economy Minister Robert Habeck said that Germany will try to compensate for the move by increasing the burning of coal, a more polluting fossil fuel. “That’s bitter, but it’s simply necessary in this situation to lower gas usage,” said Habeck, a member of the environmentalist Green party.
– Russian gas company Gazprom announced last week that it was sharply reducing supplies through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline for technical reasons, but which Habeck said appeared to be politically motivated.

Swim federation restricts transgender participation in women’s competition: Swimming’s world governing body FINA on Sunday voted to restrict the participation of transgender athletes in elite women’s competitions and create a working group to establish an “open” category for them in some events as part of its new policy. Female-to-male transgender athletes (transgender men) are fully eligible to compete in men’s swimming competitions. The creation of an open category will mean that everybody has the opportunity to compete at an elite level.
– The debate intensified after University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas became the first transgender NCAA champion in Division I history after winning the women’s 500-yard freestyle earlier this year. Thomas has expressed a desire to compete for a place at the Olympics but the new FINA rule would block her participation.
– FINA’s decision, the strictest by any Olympic sports body, was made during its extraordinary general congress after members heard a report from a transgender task force comprising leading medical, legal and sports figures.
– The policy was passed with a roughly 71% majority after it was put to the members of 152 national federations with voting rights who had gathered for the congress at the Puskas Arena.

SPACE

See 5 planets align in order for first time in 18 years: The five so-called naked-eye planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, are having a rare solar system reunion right now. In the morning hours throughout June, early risers have been able to catch the planets in the sky from low in the east to higher in the south. This is what astronomers refer to as conjunction. What makes this event even more unique is the planets are visible in their natural order from the sun. Not since December 2004 has this occurred, according to Sky & Telescope magazine. And the parade of planets is about to get even better for viewing. The gang will again line up in order Friday morning, June 24, with Mercury much easier to spot. The peak time to see the conjunction is after dawn and it will last about an hour before sunlight washes out the sky. “But the real bonus is the waning crescent Moon positioned between Venus and Mars,” the magazine said in a statement, “serving as a proxy Earth.” Image:Sky & Telescope.
