Recommendations & Requests

 

Bank Fees: Hello Digamites, that large bank in the centre of Torre Del Mar has put the charges for my resident current account up to 10 euro per month, that’s for the usual utilities/taxes on direct debit and a debit card. They said it is the cheapest they do and could only better it if I had my small UK pension paid directly every month, which is not possible because it is paid to me four weekly so the date is always moving. Also the exchange company I use wouldn’t be interested in such a small amount.
I don’t like the idea of doing banking on the mobile phone. Has anyone any idea where I might get a better deal? Thanks in anticipation. Colette.

Pre-travel Covid PCR test: Can anyone recommend or share an experience they’ve had, with a clinic (pref English speaking) in or near Velez/Torre-del-Mar/Torrox area that can provide pre-travel Covid PCR tests that will be accepted by EasyJet for travel back to the UK.

COVID-19

Andalusia records the best Monday of the infection from April, and a single dead since Saturday: {Translation} Updated: 21/06/2021, 18:33
-Andalusia has only one death from Covid on Monday. This number is the result of the progress of the vaccination process, which has already reached more than half of the Andalusian population with at least one dose.
-There is also good news in terms of infections. This Monday, 1,210 cases of coronavirus have been reported in Andalusia, one hundred less than the previous day and the best Monday since the beginning of April. Although the community is reluctant to break the floor of a thousand daily infections, there is a downward trend in this meter.
-Proof of this is that the accumulated incidence for two weeks is also falling. This Monday it stands at 173.7 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants when last week it exceeded 180 points and reached around 190. This meter, however, is beginning not to be the best reflection of the progress of the pandemic because the vaccines mean that those who are infected are younger and therefore pass the disease asymptomatic with a mild form.
-For this reason, hospital pressure is a good gauge of the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis. And here too there is good news. Although Andalusia added 25 hospital admissions this Monday – the first day of the week always tends to raise this figure -, the community recorded 595, so it remains below 600 for the second day in a row.
-This is a figure that has not been reached in Andalusia for nine months and reduces hospital pressure to the lowest levels since last September.
-In the ICU there has also been a drop. There are 242 people admitted to intensive care, three less than yesterday, Sunday. This is also the lowest figure since September last year.

The Axarquia start the week with 34 new cases of coronavirus and 36 new cured: {Translation} Updated: June 21, 2021, 15:00
– The data provided on Monday 21 June by the Ministry of Health of the Andalusian Regional Government confirms 34 new cases of coronavirus reported in the Axarquia region since last Friday, with 35 new cases of people who have managed to overcome the disease and no deaths.
-The new cases have been reported in Vélez-Málaga (17). Nerja (7). Rincón de la Victoria (5). Torrox (2). El Borge (1). Periana (1) and Riogordo (1). The people who have overcome the disease since last Friday are located in the municipalities of Nerja (10). Rincón de la Victoria (9). Vélez-Málaga (7). Colmenar (3). Frigiliana (3). Algarrobo (2). Riogordo (1) and Torrox (1). Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiahoy.es/articulo/axarquia-comarca/axarquia-inicia-semana-34-nuevos-casos-coronavirus-36-nuevos-curados/20210621144800041496.html

SPAIN

Government to lower VAT on electricity from 21% to 10%:
-The government has finally decided to reduce VAT on electricity from 21% to 10%, with the aim of reducing the cost of electricity bills, which in June were on course to be the most expensive in history.
-This means that the total amount of electricity bills will be 11% cheaper. For example, a bill of 60 euros will be reduced by 6.6 euros to 53.4 euros. For an amount of 50 euros, the saving will be 5.5 euros, to 44.5 euros.
-This measure is one of those considered by the coalition government following pressure from Unidas Podemos, although it comes after electricity prices have risen for almost three months and in the midst of the political debate on pardons for those convicted in Catalonia. Coincidentally, the reduction has been announced a few hours after President Pedro Sánchez announced that tomorrow’s Council of Ministers will approve the pardons.
-In the end, the thesis of Unidas Podemos has prevailed over those of the PSOE, as ministers Nadia Calviño and Teresa Ribera were more in favour of suspending once again the tax that levies a 7% tax on electricity generation. The same measure they already applied between October 2018 and March 2019 when the price of electricity reached 71 euros per megawatt hour (MWh) in the wholesale market. Currently, the average price in June is 82.5 euros.
-The lowering of VAT on electricity will be approved at the Council of Ministers next Thursday, according to sources consulted, and will affect domestic consumers with contracted power of up to 6 kW and SMEs with power of up to 15 kW.
-Likewise, the reduction will affect both consumers with a regulated tariff or pvpc and those with contracts in the deregulated market (fixed price for 12 months).
-Domestic consumers and SMEs have been charged 21% VAT on their bills since 2012, when Mariano Rajoy’s government raised this tax from 18% to 21%.
-In addition, the bill includes the special tax on electricity, which is 5.11269632% and is applied to the contracted power and the energy consumed.
(I do not understand this. Yet all the newspapers, in Spanish and English are repeating it. Lowering the VAT tax rate 11% does NOT decrease the total bill by 11%, it only lowers the VAT charged by 11%. Or am I missing something? -Ed.)

New tourist accommodation concept with two-metre-wide micro-rooms is coming to the Costa: A new, unique accommodation concept – mainly aimed at the younger end of the market – is coming to the Costa del Sol soon with an anticipated opening date of December. (Actually similar lodgings, or even smaller, has been available in Japan for decades. -Ed.) The tourist accommodation will fall into the ‘hostel’ category and the twenty micro-rooms will mostly be singles although there will be some doubles, and the bathrooms will be shared. It is already advertised on some of the main tourist accommodation portal pages as a ‘capsule hotel’ under the name ‘M Pods Malaga’. More info- http://m-pods.hotelscostadelsolspain.com/en/ .

COVID-19

Up to 87 hospitalized for Covid in Malaga, 10 of them in the ICU: {Translation} Updated: June 20, 2021, 14:39
-The healthcare pressure has been falling slightly but steadily for many days, and this Sunday, six weeks after the state of alert was lifted, the statistics show that in Malaga there are currently 87 patients admitted for Covid-19, four more in the last 24 hours. Of these, ten patients are hospitalised in Intensive Care Units (ICU), one more than last Saturday.
-The Regional Ministry of Health and Families has again updated the data in Andalusia and confirms that there are 570 confirmed Covid-19 patients admitted to hospital. As for the number of infections, deaths and cured patients, as has been the norm for weeks, this Sunday’s health report makes no mention whatsoever of them. Nor is there any update on the incidence rate during the weekends.
-Malaga is home to 15.26% of the hospitalised patients in the entire autonomous community. The worst figure is registered by the capital of Seville with 153 hospitalised patients and 46 patients in ICU, which translates into 26.84% of the total number of hospitalised Andalusians. Below are Cordoba with 83, Granada with 78 and Jaen with 70. Almeria is the Andalusian province with the lowest number of patients admitted to its hospitals, 12.
-In terms of vaccinations, thanks to the 119,779 injections administered in Malaga last week, the number of people in the province with at least one dose is 792,983, an increase of almost 76,000 compared to last week. Of all the inoculations counted since the vaccination campaign began (1,235,441), as many as 467,202 people now have the full course.
-In the first six months of the campaign, 6,498,033 vaccines against the coronavirus have been administered at regional level, just 97.5% of the doses received. More than four million Andalusians have already received a dose and 2.52 million people have already received the full course, i.e. 29.7% of the population living in the autonomous community.

The move comes as the Junta signed its first drought agreement since 2009, in light of lack of rainfall and worrying levels of water in La Viñuela reservoir.

Is Windows 11 On The Way? : Earlier this week, a copy of the next version of Windows leaked onto the web.
Known officially as Windows 11, the leaked copy is a pre-beta version. That hasn’t stopped tech sites publishing mini reviews, assessing everything from its visual appearance to various technical features.
Visually, the biggest changes you’ll notice can be found along the taskbar. Microsoft has centered the app icons here (like on Macs), cleaned up the tray area, and included a new Start button and menu. The Settings window has also adopted a Mac appearance.

Yes, Again! Update- Your Chrome Browser to Patch Yet Another New Threat in General Circulation:
Successful exploitation of the flaw could mean corruption of valid data, leading to a crash, and even execution of unauthorized code or commands.
The issue was reported to Google anonymously on June 15
Chrome users are recommended to update to the latest version (91.0.4472.114) by heading to Settings > Help > ‘About Google Chrome’ to mitigate the risk associated with the flaw.
(As we have seen, these Chrome hack patches are now a weekly occurrence. Either Google Chrome is the worst code ever written, or is it now under hack attacks around the clock. Either way, I recommend using an alternative browser. My current fav is UR Browser.

International Music Day, something to celebrate? Some Spanish musicians say “NO!”: Hundreds of performances and cultural events will mark this Monday an International Music Day, the celebration of which has been rejected by the musicians’ unions, who denounce that “public administrations and political parties” have planned acts that do not respect current legislation.
They also denounce the precariousness of their work and assure that they will only celebrate Music Day “when our labor rights are respected every day of the year.” That is why they end their text with a resounding phrase: “Something to celebrate on Music Day? Nothing to celebrate.” Full article: https://spainsnews.com/music-day-something-to-celebrate/

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.

SPAIN

Although it still needs to be voted on next Thursday- Spain’s PM Sánchez announces the end of face masks outdoors from 26 June – with conditions: Updated: 18 June 2021, 13:59
-An extraordinary Cabinet meeting on Thursday, 24 June, will (most likely) approve the modification of the ‘new normal’ law that required the mandatory use of the protection in all public spaces at all times.
-Face masks will no longer be mandatory in public spaces in Spain from Saturday, 26 June – as long as a safe distance from other people can be maintained.
-Pedro Sánchez, after several days of uncertainty and controversy with some regions reluctant to end the coronavirus protection measure, announced that on Thursday, 24 June, an extraordinary Cabinet meeting will be held “in which we are going to propose that the face mask will not be needed in public spaces from 26 June.”
-Between now and next Thursday, Spain’s Ministry of Health intends to try and convince the regions most reluctant to ease the lifting of face masks measure so that it is approved unanimously and enters into force simultaneously in the 19 regions, whatever the individual position of each.
-Catalonia, the Valencian region, Murcia, Castilla-La Mancha, Galicia, Madrid, Aragon, Balearic Islands and the Basque Country are, generally, in favour of abolishing the mandatory measure but Navarra, Extremadura, Andalucía, Cantabria and Castilla y Léon have been reluctant to support the end of the mandatory masks.
-These last regions have suggested the measure should only be eased with a cumulative incidence rate of 50 or with 50 per cent of the population vaccinated. Source: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202106/18/spain-sanchez-announces-facemasks-20210618114715.html

COVID-19


The Covid infection curve is slowly starting to fall in Andalusia and is noticeable in hospitals: {Translation, condensed} Updated: 17/06/2021, 19:06
-The downward trend in the incidence of Covid in Andalusia continues, although it is evolving very slowly. The accumulated infection rate in the last 14 days has fallen to 177 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants and the 7-day rate to 77 cases. The estimates of the committee of experts advising the Junta considered that in this period this indicator should be below 100 cases.
-The number of daily infections remains high. On Thursday, the community has 1,418 new infections, a figure higher than the previous day but 109 fewer cases than on the same day last week. The statistics today show 9 deaths due to Covid, which is less than the 15 deaths on Thursday last week.
-The number of cured positives is very similar to the number of infections, with 1,428 confirmed cases in the last 24 hours. Of the 604,213 Andalusians who have been infected with the coronavirus, 575,469 have overcome the disease.
-Today, the number of patients admitted to hospital has dropped significantly. In total there are 674 Covid patients in Andalusian hospitals, 145 of whom are in ICU; eleven less than on Wednesday.
-The percentage of beds occupied by Covid patients is 3.79 percent and although it is at low risk levels, it is higher than the average for Spain (2.5). The same is not true of the ICUs, with an occupancy rate of 7.9, just over one point below the national average.

Osaka withdrew from the French Open after her first round win over Patricia Maria Tig. She had wanted to skip press conferences at Roland-Garros.

Spanish PM announces that face masks will ‘soon’ not be mandatory outdoors: Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez on Wednesday expressed his confidence that “we will soon drop the use of face masks” while outside now that the country’s Covid-19 vaccination campaign has reached “cruising speed”.
Many health experts have been calling for an end to mask-wearing outdoors for some time now, given that there is no evidence that their use when there are no crowds is effective. In order for their compulsory use to be eliminated, the government will have to approve a royal decree in the Congress of Deputies.

DGT Brings In New Beacons From July 1 To Replace Emergency Triangles: The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) has been reminding drivers for months to change the emergency triangles for the V-16 light beacons, and now, on July 1, the beacons will finally become authorised as fully legal to use on the road.
As the DGT brings in these beacons, it has assured that no fines will be issued for failing to comply with using them, not until 2026, but they do recommend drivers to purchase the beacon – which costs between €20 and €30 each – as they are more convenient to use and to transport, than the triangles, and of course, if you have no beacon then you must use the triangles.

Brussels approves the recovery plan, which will allow the immediate arrival of more than 9,000 million: The European Commission has announced that it has given its approval of the recovery plan for the Spanish economy, also coinciding with the official visit to Madrid of the president of the community executive Ursula von der Leyen.
The fact that the plan presented by Spain was one of the first to be approved reveals the extent to which the Commission is concerned about the fragility of the Spanish economy, the fourth most important in the euro zone and capable of having systemic negative effects over the rest of the countries.

MALAGA

Malaga cancels its first district fairs- Campanillas, Teatinos, El Palo, plus info on other fairs: {Translation} Updated: 16 June, 2021 – 18:42
-Malaga begins to suspend its first district fairs. While waiting to see what finally happens with the Feria de Agosto, whose celebration is still hanging by a thread, the Town Hall considers the festivities planned for the first week of July in Campanillas to be cancelled.
-This has been confirmed to this newspaper by municipal sources, who have specified that the decision has been taken “unanimously” in the framework of a meeting held this Tuesday in which the groups of the district participated. What is going to be organised is a kind of event in homage to the Virgen del Carmen.
-Unless there is a major surprise and a sudden change in the evolution of the pandemic in recent weeks in the capital of the Costa del Sol, with a continued rise in the incidence rate, what has happened in Campanillas is going to spread to many other districts.
-In fact, other municipal sources have also confirmed that there will also be no fair in Teatinos, also scheduled for the middle of next month. Before these two events, the pandemic also hit the celebrations in Churriana last May.
-The situation is the same in the case of the traditional celebrations in the eastern part of the town, set around the feast of the Virgen del Carmen. In this case, as confirmed by the district councillor, Carlos Conde, there will be no fairs either. On the other hand, work has been underway for weeks on the organisation of around a hundred small-scale activities, to be held throughout July, and designed for a variety of audiences.
-In the case of the western part of the city, in Carretera de Cádiz, the seafaring festivities are also being reformulated. As explained by the district councillor, Luis Verde, they are thinking of a different format as a consequence of Covid, so that the space in the Huelin park will be extended, allowing a greater separation between the attendees. In addition to this, there will be actions throughout the week. Source, Spanish: https://www.malagahoy.es/malaga/Malaga-cancela-ferias-distrito-Campanillas-Teatinos_0_1583843558.html

 

Police smash theft gang and warn of ‘ghost’ technique of breaking into properties: After several months of investigations, officers from the specialist robbery unit of the National Police have made arrests and broken up a gang of thieves that was breaking into properties without leaving any trace of how they had gained access.
The break-in technique used by this group consists of inserting a key made from  malleable aluminium sheets into the lock, which when slightly turned from side to side copied the notches and marks of the original key. From this they made a master key that allowed them to open the door without leaving any trace that the lock had been forced, because, in reality, it hadn’t. Photo:SUR. Full article:

GRANADA

Motril will celebrate the night of San Juan with the beaches open, but no bonfires: {Translation, summary}
-This year 2021 the beaches will be open again, “but under no circumstances can any activity be carried out that incites people to socialise in an uninhibited manner and endangers people’s safety, due to Covid, at the start of the high season”, explained the Mayor, Luisa María García Chamorro.
-Chamorro insisted that, from a predetermined time, no sunshades, awnings or any other type of structure may be set up. Nor may barbecues be set up on the night of San Juan and, much less, any kind of bonfire.
-In relation to this, the Deputy Mayor for Safety, María Ángeles Escámez, warned of the risk of the relaxation of distancing measures that occurs as a result of alcohol consumption, especially among young people, “so actions that incite this are not going to be allowed”, she said.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. 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.

COVID-19

The Andalusian Covid incidence rate remains 80 points above the national average: {Translation} Updated: 15/06/2021, 14:52
-Andalusia has 1,267 new cases of coronavirus infection on Tuesday, down from the 1,315 cases recorded the previous day, although 106 cases more than those recorded on Tuesday of last week. The community has 18 deaths caused by Covid-19.
-These records halt the downward trend in incidence that seemed to mark the beginning of the week to remain stagnant in the plateau phase of this fourth wave of the pandemic. Thus, the incidence rates remain at the same values as the previous day, just a few tenths down to stand at 184.2 points in terms of cumulative incidence at 14 days. This is still 80 points above the national average and in the high alert range.
-Incidence falls especially in the provinces with the highest incidence. Huelva is down 18 points (272) and Jaén 12 (215). It is up today in Almeria, which marks the minimum with 69 cases; Seville and, especially in Cordoba with 17 points more than the day before, which places this province as the second with the second highest impact of the virus at this time with a rate at 14 days of 225 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants.
-The increase in the number of Covid patients in Andalusian hospitals is limited this Tuesday to 8 more admissions, to total 711 bedridden, the lowest increase on Tuesday since the fall of the third wave in March. There is a clear downward trend in the pressure of care by Covid. However, the admission of 15 more patients to the ICU breaks the downward trend in critical care pressure observed on the previous day. In total, 156 Andalusians are currently being treated in intensive care units for coronavirus.

High infection rate prevents Andalusia from reducing measures and postpones de-escalation to July: {Translation} Updated: 15/06/2021, 20:50
-The committee of experts advising the Andalusian government on the evolution of the pandemic recommended on Tuesday to stop the de-escalation in terms of restrictions on opening hours and capacity for another two weeks in view of the stagnation of the epidemiological situation in the community, which already has the highest Covid incidence rates in Spain.
-After the meeting, the Junta de Andalucía announced that it will extend the measures, adding only two changes with respect to its last resolution of 1 June, in which it also extended the restrictions approved after the end of the state of alarm in May. Thus, it is allowed to extend opening hours for establishments selling and serving ice cream until 1.00 am. These establishments will not be allowed to serve or sell alcoholic beverages after midnight.
-A specific risk assessment will also be introduced in those municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants with an incidence of more than 1,000 cases / per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. It is necessary to make such an assessment in those cases of municipalities with a clear downward trend at the time of their assessment by the Territorial Committee.
-The committee has met on this occasion without the presence of the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, who at the same time was holding a round of consultations with the parliamentary spokespersons in San Telmo in preparation for his interview with Pedro Sánchez in the Moncloa on Thursday.
-Once the meeting was over, the Minister for Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, who chaired the forum, insisted on sending a message of caution to the Andalusian population “because the virus is still with us”. “In Andalusia we are carrying out a very high rate of vaccination, which is increasing, but despite this we cannot lower our guard,” he stressed.
-Andalusia is already the region with the highest cumulative incidence rates in Spain. The 14-day rate stands at 184.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 80 points above the national figure.

Of Spain’s 17 regions – which are in charge of the vaccination drive – only Madrid, the Basque Country and Castilla y León have immunized fewer than 20% of this demographic. Since the inoculation campaign began last December, Spain has administered more than 33 million doses, and 45.3% of the entire population – 21.4 million people – have received at least one shot.

SPAIN

Electricity bills soar 45% in the first fortnight of June, with almost 28 euros more: {Translation} Updated: 15June, 2021, 11:58
-According to Facua, the year-on-year increase over the last fortnight represents an increase of 45.4% for the average user compared to June 2020, when the monthly bill stood at 60.58 euros. The average user’s bill last May was 82.13 euros.
-The average user used by Facua in its analysis has a contracted power of 4.4 kilowatts (kW) and a consumption of 366 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month.
-As for the percentages of consumption in the three time slots of the new billing system, the association has taken as a reference the current profile of the average user without time zone discrimination published by the National Securities Market Commission (CNMC), who consumes 45% of electricity during off-peak hours, 29% during peak hours and 26% during flat hours.
-The average price per kilowatt hour (kWh) from 1 to 15 June was 13.62 cents in off-peak hours (including taxes), 18.19 cents in peak hours and 30.35 cents in peak hours.
-In June 2020, the average price without hourly discrimination was 11.31 cents, and a year earlier, in June 2019, it was 13.78 cents. As for the average last May, it was 17.20 cents.
-According to Facua’s data, if the average user’s consumption in each time slot is weighted, the average price per kWh for the first fifteen days of June amounts to 19.65 cents, 73.7% higher than the 11.31 cents in June 2020. The price is close to the historical peak of the second week of January 2021 (from the 8th to the 14th), when it reached 20.64 cents.
-Regardless of the daily peaks that have been reached at certain times, the highest monthly price in history was during the entire first quarter of 2012, when the kWh stood at 20.85 cents.
*Solutions to the “brutal increases”*
-In a statement, the association calls on the government to find solutions to “the brutal tariff increases” that continue to be applied by electricity companies and a change in the new system of billing by hourly time slots in force since 1 June, “which in itself represents an increase in the price of energy consumed for a very high percentage of consumers and is particularly detrimental to the most disadvantaged economies”.
-It also considers that the average drop of 14.2% in the price of the fixed term of the bill is “absolutely insufficient, especially considering that during the governments of Mariano Rajoy it increased by 103%” and regrets that the fourth vice president and minister for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, “has not publicly stated that the CNMC should modify the schedules, with the advancement of the ‘valley’ period to 22.00 hours from Monday to Friday” that Facua demands.
-This body has already pointed out that it is too early to do so after two ministers from Unidas Podemos asked for it, although the government has the power to act on the regulated part of the bill that it controls, the charges.
-However, Facua values “positively” the proposed cut of 1,000 million euros per year in overpayments to electricity companies for the non-emission of CO2 in hydro and nuclear power plants.
-In addition, the association demands “a far-reaching reform” of the social bonus so that many more families can benefit from it and a reduction in the Value Added Tax (VAT) on the bills of domestic consumers, who pay more than 27% in indirect taxes as they are charged the general VAT of 21%, plus the special tax on electricity.

MALAGA

Uber is expanding its services to the whole of the Costa del Sol of Malaga: {Translation, summary}
-Uber, the car hire with driver company, also known as VTC, is expanding its presence in the province of Malaga. As the company announced on Tuesday, its vehicles now cover a full 200 kilometres along the Costa del Sol, in the province of Malaga and Cadiz. In this way, any user can now request journeys from Nerja to La Línea de la Concepción, as part of the company’s expansion plan and its commitment to the region.
-The number of VTCs in Malaga has not yet reached its peak and there are already 2,070 licences in existence.
-In the new coverage area, which will reach important tourist locations such as the caves of Nerja, Burriana beach, the old town of Marbella, Bioparc Fuengirola or the golf courses of Sotogrande, the portfolio of services that Uber already offers for the rest of Malaga will be available: UberX, the platform’s most popular service; Uber Van, for group transfers; and Uber Comfort and Uber Black, which offer premium services with high-end vehicles.
-To book rides through Uber, users simply download the app, create an account and add their payment method. To start their journey, they enter their destination and indicate the pick-up point. The app displays the total amount of the trip and the user can make the payment via the app, immediately receiving a receipt for the trip in their email and an invoice that can be downloaded from the website.
After displaying the price, the app sets the minutes remaining for the vehicle to arrive at the pick-up point, as well as all the driver’s information, the photo and the vehicle’s model and registration number. To communicate with the driver, the user can use the in-app chat or make a phone call completely anonymously. During the trip, the passenger can share his or her location and estimated time of arrival with family or friends. At the end of the trip, both users and drivers can rate each other, which is very useful information to ensure the quality of the service.

Recommendations & Requests

 

ITVM Car Tax: Can anyone tell me how to pay my car tax on line? I did it last year but the website they have given only seem to supply information and I am unable to find the actual page for payment. Thanks, Helen. Competa
Email: 37vernonATgmailDOTcom

 

Recommendation: My wife and I have employed a mother and daughter cleaning team for the past three years. They are hard-working, fast, friendly, honest and efficient. They have a car and the daughter speaks English well enough to get by. For the moment, they have only English-speaking customers, either Brits or people of other nationalities who speak English.
One of the couples they clean for has decided to move back home and they are looking for another home to clean. The advantage of the team is that 2 people get the job done twice as fast. Their prices are reasonable and they can also travel from their homes in Competa to a reasonable distance. You’ll get more than your money’s worth!
I have volunteered to serve as an intermediary for them, so please call on 634361756. Paul, Competa

 

Water purification: We need to renew our water purification system to enable us to use the part regenerated/agricultural supply for domestic purposes. Has anyone any good recommendations? Elspeth, Almayate campo

Coronavirus infection rate starts to fall in Andalusia: {Translation} Updated: 14/06/2021, 16:25
-The 1,315 new coronavirus infections recorded this weekend mark the beginning of a fall in the incidence of the pandemic in Andalusia. This is 285 fewer cases than those recorded last week and the best Monday in terms of this statistic since 11 April, bringing the incidence rates down to 184.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days and 81.3 cases per week.
-The drop in the accumulated incidence rate is generalised in all provinces, especially in Seville and Cordoba, with Almeria being the lowest with 66 cases and Huelva the highest with almost 290 cases and the only 7-day rate higher than one hundred cases (127) in the community.
-In terms of cases detected by provinces in the last 48 hours, Malaga overtook Seville as the province with the highest number of cases, with 242 cases in Malaga and 234 in Seville. They are followed by Cádiz with 182, Granada with 176, Huelva with 162, Córdoba with 147, Jaén with 106 and Almería with 66.

Digital Covid Certificate- Over-65s will receive a physical copy delivered to their homes:
-Digital Covid Certificates are designed to help make travel around the EU easier, however, they are not a requirement for travel. The document contains a QR code specific to you that airport staff can easily scan and check that you meet the travel safety requirements. It will include information like if you’ve been vaccinated or not, if you’ve had and now recovered from Covid-19 or if you have a recent negative Covid test.
-They are not the same as vaccination certificates issued by Spain’s regions, which are mainly for informational purposes.
-Overall, they are designed to save you time and effort while travelling in EU/Schengen Zone countries. From the EU’s perspective, it’s a way of avoiding quarantine and other restrictions for travellers in its member states.
According to the Andalusian regional premier Juan Manuel Moreno, the over-65s will receive a physical copy delivered to their homes, because they “are not accustomed to the digital methods”. The rest of the fully vaccinated population will be able to request it via the Andalusian health service website or app.
-The certificate is available, regardless of the type of healthcare you have – public or private via the online portal ClicSalud+ and the app Salud Andalusia. In order to download it, you’ll have to identify on the portal or app with your TIE number/NIE number, Cl@ve or digital certificate. The certificate is available in the ‘Salud‘ section, under “COVID-19 Certificates” online and via the home screen on the app.
-Once in this section, you will able to access the corresponding certificate, as well as that of their social security beneficiaries under 16 years of age.

MALAGA

Wild goats ‘strolling’ through the city of Malaga: {Translation} A group of wild goats have surprised the residents of the eastern area of Malaga city this weekend. The presence of the animals has alarmed those who have come across them climbing the slopes around Monte Miramar or even ‘strolling’ in the street.
-Several videos and photographs have been circulating on social networks since this morning in which several goats can be seen in the urban environment of the city, to the astonishment of passers-by who could not believe what they were seeing. Apparently, the animals have been sighted in Avenida Pintor Sorolla or in Calle Marcos Obregón.
-It would not be the first time that wild goats have approached urban environments in the province of Malaga. Last month several pairs caused quite a stir in the municipality of Frigiliana, where they were seen jumping over the roofs of houses. On the same days they were sighted in Comares.
-In April last year, a group of mountain goats were seen in the streets of Archidona. On that occasion, after entering the town centre to the surprise of passers-by, the animals showed their dexterity by jumping over the fences in their path without any problem.

Google Chrome Browser Conning It’s Users? Mozilla Says Google’s New Ad Tech “FLoC” Doesn’t Protect User Privacy: Google’s upcoming plans to replace third-party cookies with a less invasive ad targeted mechanism have a number of issues that could defeat its privacy objectives and allow for significant linkability of user behavior, possibly even identifying individual users.
-Despite its promise to offer a greater degree of anonymity, Google’s proposals for Chrome have been met with stiff resistance from regulators, privacy advocates, publishers, and every major browser that uses the open-source Chromium project, including Brave, Vivaldi, Opera, and Microsoft Edge. “The worst aspect of FLoC is that it materially harms user privacy, under the guise of being privacy-friendly,” Brave said in April.
-The “privacy-safe ad targeting” method has also come under the scanner from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which called FLoC a “terrible idea…that can lower the barrier to companies gathering information about users” the EFF said.

Android Users- Update Your Android System & All Apps Now: Multiple critical security flaws have been disclosed in Samsung’s pre-installed Android apps, which, if successfully exploited, could allow adversaries access to personal data without users’ consent and take control of the devices.
These bugs allow an attacker to access and edit the victim’s contacts, calls, SMS/MMS, install arbitrary apps with device administrator rights, or read and write arbitrary files on behalf of a system user which could change the device’s settings, says Sergey Toshin, founder of mobile security startup Oversecured.

Three reasons you shouldn’t install the iOS 15 beta on your iPhone yet: A beta is called that because it’s not finished and there are bound to be issues. For example, the second beta of iOS 14.7 includes an issue that causes some iPhones to not recognize the SIM card inside the phone. Without a SIM card, your phone may as well be an iPod Touch.
Bugs and issues just like that will surely crop up in iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. And even if they don’t completely stop you from using your iPhone or iPad, the bugs will still be annoying and could mean the difference between getting work done and reliably sending messages, or having a new paperweight.

Israel’s Knesset convenes to vote on new government that will end Netanyahu’s rule: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s record 12-year hold on power was set to end on Sunday when parliament votes on a new government, ushering in an administration that has pledged to heal a nation bitterly divided over his departure.

Running Appliances At Night To Save On Power Bill Can Be Risky: Most towns in Spain already have penalties set out in their by-laws for excessive noise overnight. In many places this even includes the use of electrical appliances like tumble dryers or washing machines.
These electrical appliances can exceed the limits which have been put in place to ensure that residents are able to rest peacefully at night.
In Malaga there are noise restrictions in place which prohibit: “any activity that disturbs the rest of others inside the home during the night, such as parties, games, dragging furniture and belongings, use of noisy electrical appliances, etc” as reported Malaga Hoy.
“I don’t rule out the possibility that there may be some isolated cases, but I don’t think it will be generalised, we’ll have to see what happens in the coming months”, explains Gemma del Corral, councillor for environmental sustainability. Despite this, she is clear in questioning the new electricity tariffs, pointing out that “they obviously do not incentivise or protect the right to rest, quite the opposite”.
(Note: Some sources are suggesting you should not run large appliances at night while you sleep, as these devices occasionally malfunction and can cause fires. If this happens when you are sleeping you will not be able to react as quickly as if you were awake. -Ed.)
