DoctorLaptop’s famous Annual Clean & TuneUp Service €60: For Windows & Mac. New “fileless” malware formats evade standard anti-virus programs, making it difficult for typical users to “dis-infect” computers themselves with free, consumer level tools.  If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing with advanced professional grade tools is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? If you did, the engine replacement will cost far more than if you had properly maintained it with an oil change once or twice a year. It’s the same with computers, you should do a quick cleanup yourself once a month, and get an annual professional service. I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files and permissions, replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use a 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows/Mac+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
ALSO: Free shopping service, send me your requirements, I’ll find you the best deals!
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux and Android all serviced. I do not service phones.
Contact: doctorlaptop AT protonmail DOT com or call 675 993 069 (no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap). Please do not use the DigameXtra email for DoctorLaptop business. Always include the make, model, and version of Windows/Mac installed when emailing for support.

Ireland orders full national lockdown- Country faces SIX WEEKS of maximum ‘Level 5’ restrictions with pubs and non-essential shops closed until December 1: Cabinet ministers made the decision at a meeting at Government Buildings in Dublin this evening (Monday). A formal announcement is expected later.
Level 5 is the most stringent under the Irish system and asks citizens to ‘stay at home, except to exercise within 5 kilometres of your home.’ Public gatherings, except for small numbers at funerals and weddings, are banned and only essential shops are allowed to stay open. Construction will also be allowed, but most non-essential retail, hairdressers, barbers and salons will have to close. The public will be asked to work from home except for essential workers, and pubs, restaurants and cafes will only be able to provide takeaways and deliveries.

Tourism falls into a coma on the Costa del Sol: Malaga Airport passenger numbers were down by 9.5 million in the first eight months of this year and tourist accommodation lost 3.4 million guests.
Between January and August no more than 1.8 million visitors stayed in tourist accommodation, compared with the 5.2 million in 2019. Those 1.8 million visitors checked in for 6.5 million nights, far from the 20.5 million registered in the same period of 2019, according to figures from Spain’s National Institute of Statistics (INE) quoted by the Costa del Sol tourism authority.
And to get a better idea of the size of the disaster, for hotel accommodation, the 1.4 million visitors arriving in the first eight months of 2020 is the equivalent of the total for the month of March alone last year.

BREXIT: From the UK Home Office via Twitter
European nationals have been warned that the rules to enter the UK will change in autumn next year, meaning ID cards will no longer be accepted at the border.
Britain’s Home Office has sent out a reminder to nationals of EU countries as well as Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway that from October 1st 2021 national identity cards will no longer be valid to enter the UK, and will only be able to enter the UK using their passport.

 

Users of pirate IPTV services in the UK and Ireland are most likely being monitored by one or more major ISPs: Secret traffic analysis, provided to the High Court in a recent blocking case involving UEFA, reveals that studies were carried out in connection with Sky which determined many subscribers were accessing pirate IPTV platforms via the ISP. It appears that in this matter, Sky or others acting on its behalf, have been monitoring the traffic of Sky subscribers who accessed the servers of pirate IPTV providers.
The onus is still on consumers to take action and protect themselves by, for instance, using a VPN or other such masking method.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #82
-Android Mobile Device User Alert- If you have one of these devices be sure to keep Bluetooth turned off in Settings when you are not using Bluetooth functions. There are 3 significant Bluetooth vulnerabilities, known since 2018, that allow a nearby hacker to gain access to, and even take control of, your device. These have only been recently patched in the newest versions of Android that use Linux kernel versions 4.19.137 and 5.7.13. You can do a websearch for your Android version and check whick Linuz Kernel your version of Android uses. As always, the best advice for all Android (and Apple) users is to keep your devices fully updated; there are new updates every week. Windows users should lag 2 to 4 weeks behind new update releases before installing them due to their long history of releasing buggy updates.
-Websites preventing you from using “Back Arrow”, to go back to the previous screen? If you do a websearch and then click to open a link, on some websites like FakeBook and YouTube, you cannot then click the Back Arrow to return to the list of search results. They lock you onto their site! This is tantamount to digital kidnapping, telling MY browser to ignore a built in, primary function! The work-around is to know where your browser’s “History” button is located, they all have one. Then next time you find yourself in this situation, prevented from backing out of a website, click the History button, then double-click the top item on the list. You will go back to the previous screen

Orionid Meteor Shower is visible until November 7, peaking 22-24 Oct: As well as the stunning meteor shower, this month also brings us an extremely rare ‘Blue Moon’.

Spain will not ask for €70 billion of its share of EU recovery fund:
“This is a great agreement: we have secured €140 billion for Spain, of which €72.7 billion are in grants,” said Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, of the Socialist Party (PSOE), after leaders clinched a landmark deal aimed at pulling the European economy out of its Covid-induced coma.
Spain and other countries would rather focus on the grant aid that does not have to be returned, and ignore the rest of the available funds. This in turn poses the risk that the European stimulus package will end up far smaller in scope than expected, leading to a less vigorous recovery than desired.

Inside Madrid’s “superspreader” underground parties: When you enter these parties you are told by the doorman, ‘If the police arrive, you say you didn’t pay to come and that you brought your own drink’. Like underground raves of old, invites are distributed with phone numbers only, you call to get the location just hours before the party starts.
Club owners are flouting coronavirus restrictions by setting up nighttime bars in tourist apartments where up to 100 youngsters gather without face masks.

Madrid is no longer the worst region in Europe nor is Spain the country with the most coronavirus: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es}
Spain is no longer the only focus, nor the largest, of coronavirus in the European Union. Not even the Community of Madrid is the region most affected . Not even the list of most affected territories on the continent is made up of Spanish regions, as was the case in September. The second wave of the pandemic is no longer just a problem for Spain. All of Europe is, once again, sick, without vaccines and without treatment, doomed to restrictions and under the threat of lockdowns.
In mid-September, nine of the ten regions with the highest incidence of coronavirus in the EU were Spanish. The tenth had to be sought in the Antilles, the French archipelago of Guadeloupe. The Community of Madrid was the worst in all of Spain, and in Europe, since the end of August .
In mid-October, there is only one Spanish region in the top ten in the EU, Navarra. The Community of Madrid has dropped to thirteenth place. Together with Melilla, they are the only Spanish territories still present among the top twenty with the highest number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days until October 10, latest data available from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Among the twenty regions of the EU with the highest level of coronavirus are territories of Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands and, outside the union, the United Kingdom. Currently, the highest incidence is in the region Brussels capital , with 864 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, followed by Navarra (774).
Worst countries
Spain’s situation has stabilized in the last month, while other countries have deteriorated rapidly. Spain, with 294 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last two weeks, according to ECDC data as of October 14, currently has a lower incidence than the Czech Republic (581), Belgium (470), the Netherlands (412) and France (307 ). Outside the EU, the UK (283) has suddenly worsened and is close to overtaking Spain.
The community average, however, is well below the level of Spain, in 173 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. Although the situation has worsened in Italy (87) and Germany (55), they still remain at the bottom of a table that has seen their numbers grow dramatically since the end of the summer.

FOOD RECALL– Lidl recalls a goat cheese due to the presence of Listeria: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es}
The Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition ( AESAN ) has reported the presence of the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes in the product Rulo de Cabra Cheese, made in the Netherlands and sold by the Lidl supermarket chain.
According to the German food chain in a statement, the supplier of the product has been the one who has detected the bacteria. AESAN has reported this Saturday that the only batch that has been distributed in Spain is 412, with an date of expiration 11/06/2020.
The AESAN has sent the alert to the authorities of the autonomous communities of the country with the desire that the product be withdrawn from the points of sale and food distribution channels. This agency has indicated, on the other hand, that no case of has yet been confirmed Listeriosis in our country associated with this alert .
The German supermarket chain and AESAN have recommended that consumers who have purchased this dairy product refrain from consuming it and, in turn, request the return of the cheese at Lidl stores. Remember that it is a bacteria dangerous to health, especially in the case of pregnant women , as it could cause diseases in the fetus or newborn.
The Listeriosis also carries risks for people aged 65 years and the  immunosuppressed. The threat in these cases is twofold, since the symptoms could manifest weeks after having ingested the contaminated product.

What we know so far about Spain’s planned four tier alert system to control coronavirus: Spain’s Health Ministry is preparing a new coronavirus alert system that will assess risk levels in territories across Spain and clarify measures designed to curb the spread of coronavirus.
The draft plan establishes a set of clear criteria to designate regions within a four tier system of low, moderate, high and extreme risk.
An established set of measures and restrictions will be applicable to each tier depending on the risk level ranging from broad social distancing measures in the low risk areas to “exceptional measures” such as perimeter confinement for those that fall into the “extreme risk” category.

Spanish government planning to increase taxes by €6 billion in 2021: These are the proposed changes.
-The government is planning on raising sales tax (VAT) on sugary and artificially sweetened drinks, taking it from 10% to 21%.
-Next year will see new levies on digital services introduced, commonly known as the “Google tax,” as well as tariffs on financial transactions known as the “Tobin tax.” Both have been given the green light in Spain’s upper house of parliament, the Senate, and will be implemented in around three months’ time.
-The budget plan also includes a rise in so-called “green taxes.”
-The creation of a tax on single-use plastic
-Also without providing detail, the government’s plan includes a rise in direct taxes, possibly on high incomes and corporate tax, with an impact of €2.5 billion over the next two years, and a rise on indirect taxes that will bring in €1.7 billion.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Review for Moonette: I’ve just celebrated my 70th birthday this year. As my skin is very dry and thin, Moonette products are very soothing. I use the coconut lip balm and face cream first thing in the morning, then I apply the eye cream around the eye contour and the 3 Kings body cream on my arms and legs. After showering I use the body cream again over the whole body to keep my skin moisturized. In the evening I apply the lip balm again and the anti-ageing serum (face oil) before going to bed. I do not use other products as Moonette skincare products are natural, non-irritating and absolutely satisfactory for my skin. I am so pleased that I don’t suffer from dry itchy skin and cracked lips anymore! Lise D., Torrox, lisedeleuran AT hotmail D0t com

How reliable is the coronavirus data coming from Madrid? : After a major standoff over the partial closure of Madrid, Spain’s government is now locked in a numbers fight with regional authorities who are relentlessly demanding the restrictions be lifted. For days now, the leftwing government of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has been casting doubt on Covid-19 figures from the Madrid public health authorities.
But the region, which is run by a rightwing coalition led by the conservative Popular Party, has hit back furiously, with the PP accusing the government of using “false figures” to justify imposing a state of emergency in Madrid.
Moving the goalposts
The restrictions initially went into force on October 2nd and were supposed to apply to any area of Spain with an infection rate of more than 500 cases per 100,000 people over the previous 14 days, which at the time was only Madrid.
Just days beforehand, the regional rate had risen above 780, compared with just 275 in the rest of Spain — itself at the time the highest in the European Union.
Madrid is now pushing for the restrictions to be removed saying its infection rate has dropped to around 460 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
But the government has since moved the goalposts, now saying the aim is to lower the incidence to around 100 cases per 100,000 people. Full story: https://www.thelocal.es/20201015/how-much-can-we-trust-coronavirus-data-from-madrid

France declares public health state of emergency over COVID-19: “The COVID-19 epidemic constitutes a public health disaster which, by its character and its severity, puts at risk the health of the population,” the government said in a statement announcing the state of emergency.

Golden Leaves Funeral Plans:
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.
Handling all of these challenges is difficult enough in one’s normal circumstances, but having to go through it while abroad is an enormous burden.
Golden Leaves Funeral Plans aims to support grieving families during these tumultuous times. Since our inception in 1984, we have partnered with a widespread network of funeral directors across the UK and Europe.
Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.
As one of the leading providers of expat prepaid funeral plans in Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Balearic Islands, and the Canary Islands, we make sure to adequately support your family in the time of greatest need.
If you are an expat family in need of prepaid funeral services please contact Ruth on phone or whats app + 34 693 715 718

Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga is now fully open!
We have started to receive clients but by appointment only. It is wonderful to finally be able to have visitors! We are of course following the legal guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
The summer is a great time to plant Vetiver as this plant is indigenous to India. Vetiver loves the heat of summer to grow. Vetiver is often used as a wind barrier in the fall and winter months. Vetiver is the best plant to stabilise erosion prone locations before the first fall rains come. We have plenty of plants in stock for either pickup or delivery via the Spanish Correos.
It is always a great way to spend a day in the garden.
We also have Moringa seeds, Lemon Grass, Moringa seedlings and now our new product, Organic Moringa Powder. If you do not know the medicinal powers of Moringa you can check it out here. https://www.vetiverspain.org/moringa-oleifera-.html
This month we have some specials for both pickup and shipments.

Recommendations & Requests

 

MS Bespoke Joinery Costa Del Sol: I had an old built-in bookshelf in my apartment that I wanted to get rid of and replaced by something more modern. I was lucky to find Mick to do the job.
Unlike others, he immediately replied to my initial inquiry, came over, looked at the bookshelf, asked what I had in mind, came up with wonderful creative workarounds for the tricky parts, sent me a sketch and started working. He was quick, efficient, extremely reliable and listened to what I wanted. After being done for the day, he cleaned up and left the worksite clean and tidy, not always a given. And the result is excellent, I am extremely happy with his work! So, anyone looking for a great carpenter, check out Mick, you won’t be disappointed.

DoctorLaptop’s famous Annual Clean & TuneUp Service €60: For Windows & Mac. New “fileless” malware formats evade standard anti-virus programs, making it difficult for typical users to “dis-infect” computers themselves with free, consumer level tools.  If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing with advanced professional grade tools is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? If you did, the engine replacement will cost far more than if you had properly maintained it with an oil change once or twice a year. It’s the same with computers, you should do a quick cleanup yourself once a month, and get an annual professional service. I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files and permissions, replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use a 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows/Mac+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
ALSO: Business computer maintenance & security service, if you think you’ve been hacked, let me do the cleanup and recovery, and I can even track down the source. Free shopping service, send me your requirements, I’ll find you the best deals!
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux and Android all serviced.
Contact: doctorlaptop AT protonmail DOT com or call 675 993 069 (no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap). Please do not use the DigameXtra email for DoctorLaptop business. Always include the make, model, and version of Windows/Mac installed when emailing for support.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Interpreter: I have used Pamela Walshe, the medical interpreter, for many years. Even if there were never a language problem , it is wonderful to be taken care of in the hospital , i.e. being able to sit and relax and not having to worry about missing ones place in the queue etc.
Recently, there has been an illness in my family, during which the liaison regarding appointments and treatment has been critical. Pamela played an important role in the happy outcome and I, again, am so glad that she works in our neck of the woods.

Several Spanish regions announce new measures to curb coronavirus spread: Navarre, Catalonia and Andalucia say citizens should prepare for restrictions, while Madrid hopes to emerge from the state of alarm in 15 days. On Monday, Andalusian premier Juan Manuel Moreno announced that his government will approve “more restrictive measures” in Granada due to a spike in coronavirus cases.
Pedro Gullón, a member of the Spanish Epidemiology Society, explains the difference between perimeter confinements – like the ones introduced in Madrid – and restrictions on social activity.
“The goal of perimeter confinements is to prevent a high-incidence zone from extending the virus to the surrounding areas, while restrictions on capacity are trying to contain the epidemic within a zone,” he says.

Danes start culling 2.5 million minks after virus hits farms: Danish veterinarians and farmers have begun culling at least 2.5 million minks in northern Denmark, authorities said Monday, after coronavirus has been reported in at least 63 farms. The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration is handling the culling of the infected animals while breeders who have non-infected animals on a farm within 8 kilometers (5 miles) of an infected farm must put them to sleep themselves, said Flemming Kure Marker of the government agency.

Microsoft Warns Android Users About A New Ransomware: Microsoft has warned about a new strain of mobile ransomware that takes advantage of incoming call notifications and Android’s Home button to lock the device behind a ransom note.
The findings concern a variant of a known Android ransomware family dubbed “MalLocker.B” which has now resurfaced with new techniques, including a novel means to deliver the ransom demand on infected devices as well as an obfuscation mechanism to evade security solutions.
No fix is available yet. All MS will say is, “MalLocker has been known for being hosted on malicious websites and circulated on online forums using various social engineering lures by masquerading as popular apps, cracked games, or video players.” Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2020/10/android-ransomware-lock.html#comment-box

 

5G Fails To Deliver For Most Consumers: 5G skeptics have often said that this new level of networking capacity is far more to benefit Big Tech and their “The Internet of Things” (IoT), and that typical users will only see small increases in internet speeds on their communications devices. They were right! 5G has 2 “bands”, high (5+ times faster than 4G) and low (slightly faster than 4G). Worldwide, most 5G infrastructure dedicated to consumer level services only supports the “low” 5G.
I previously covered in DigameXtra:
-the UK 5G situation, where only a few cities will be able to support true high-speed 5G to average users.
-Apple, who is introducing the new phone on Tuesday, will need to walk a tightrope between enticing consumers to upgrade their phones while not over-promising what 5G can do today. Apple phones can handle “high” 5G, but few people will be able to access it.
The real improvements in speed and capacity 5G can offer will be reserved for IoT industrial and gov’t services for the next few years, so they can build smart-cities, and do advanced “instant response” functions like control self driving cars, robots and drones, as well as put transmitters in every appliance, traffic light, doorbell, servellience camera, utility meter, etc.
Big Tech wants to track and constantly monitor EVERYTHING in real time. 5G will give them a significant base by connecting everything, 6G will allow it all to function in real time. See next article for 6G features.

What is 6G? : It’ll be like 5G, but more so. 6G speeds are projected to exceed 1Tb/s, (1000 Gb/s), with even lower latency, and masses of bandwidth. Researchers and scientists are talking about 6G going beyond a “wired” network, with devices acting as antennas using a decentralized network not under the control of a single network operator. If everything connects together using 5G, 6G will set these connected devices free, as higher data speeds and lower latency make instant device-to-device connection possible.
While the technology we expect to emerge from 5G, from autonomous cars and drones to smart cities, will be enhanced further with 6G, it may also bring about sci-fi applications like the integration of our brains with computers, and greatly improved touch control systems. NTT DoCoMo talks about 6G making it, “possible for cyberspace to support human thought and action in real time through wearable devices and micro-devices mounted on the human body.”
The report points toward the realm of science fiction becoming science fact, saying speeds in excess of 100Gbps could make possible sensory interfaces that feel and look just like real life, potentially through smart glasses or contact lenses. It goes on to talk about prioritizing low power consumption for over-the-air charging, and coverage that could be extended across the sea and even out into space.
