Recommendations & Requests

 

Vacuum Cleaner Bags Needed: I have searched all over Torrox Costa, Amazon UK&ES and even the Philips website, and cannot find replacement bags for my Philips De Luxe 1100, model P63 vacuum cleaner (or for any other model vacuum in Torrox Costa shops for that matter; nobody seems to stock vacuum bags anymore). This is not a very old vacuum cleaner, just 3 or 4 years old.
Can anyone suggest a place that stocks vacuum bags in the Nerja to Torre del Mar area? I am even willing to modify bags that are similar, if not a perfect fit. If you can suggest a place with a good selection of vacuum bags to chose from I am sure I can find something I can make fit. Replies are appreciated and will be copied to DigameXtra. Thank You.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating.

Coronavirus hospitalizations in Spain quadruple in a month due to spike in cases: Medical centers are preparing for a surge in patients, as the number of Covid-19 outbreaks in the country rises to 580. This rise in infections has led to an increase in serious cases that require hospitalization. If, at the beginning of July, there were around 150 Covid-19 patients receiving hospital treatment with an admission date within the previous seven days, this figure is now around 650 – 677 on Friday, the last day that data was released – which is more than four times higher. Full story: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-08-10/coronavirus-hospitalizations-in-spain-quadruple-in-a-month-due-to-spike-in-cases.html

 

Weather- Spain told to brace for week of severe storms: Between the afternoon of August 10th and midday on Tuesday, an area of isolated depression at high altitude will occur off the coast of southwestern Europe says Meteored. This will bring with it a cold front and a drop in temperatures, causing stormy weather to move northwest across the Spanish peninsula. Full story: https://www.thelocal.es/20200810/weather-spain-told-to-brace-for-week-of-severe-storms

 

Smoke free beaches in Torrox: This year the Town Hall has joined the project of the Andalucian Network of Sanitary Services and Smoke-Free Spaces (RASSELH). These spaces are in areas in which the project had already begun: Playa de Ferrara, sports area; Playa del Cenicero and Paseo Marítimo en El Morche and Playa de El Peñoncillo. (Am I the only one who believes this will drive away more tourists than it attracts in this time when this area is desperate for tourists? This is not the time for such measures in my humble opinion! Is smoking outdoors even a critical issue? The tobacco shops were included in the list of essential services when the lockdown was implemented. People from all over the world travel here, to some degree, for cheap tobacco and alcohol. Will they ban alcohol on the beach next?  I think politicians come up with this stuff just to justify their jobs and generous salaries. Honestly, there are more time critical issues to deal with during this Covid crisis. -Ed.) Full story:

DoctorLaptop Told You So- TeamViewer Flaw Could Let Hackers Steal System Password Remotely: I’ve been warning my clients for years that these remote access programs are a serious threat and should be uninstalled as soon as you are done using it.
If you are using TeamViewer, then beware and make sure you’re running the latest version of the popular remote desktop connection software for Windows.
TeamViewer team recently released a new version of its software that includes a patch for a severe vulnerability (CVE 2020-13699), which, if exploited, could let remote attackers steal your system password and eventually compromise it.
What’s more worrisome is that the attack can be executed almost automatically without requiring much interaction of the victims and just by convincing them to visit a malicious web page once.
For those unaware, TeamViewer is a popular remote-support software that allows users to securely share their desktop or take full control of other’s PC over the Internet from anywhere in the world. Full story: https://thehackernews.com/2020/08/teamviewer-password-hacking.html

 

Big break for local bands: The Municipal Youth Centre of the Rincón de la Victoria Town Hall becomes a pioneering facility by offering the free use of a recording studio to launch demos of local groups, according to the Councilor for the Youth Department, Antonio José Martín.

Evil King Media IPTV App Shuts Down: Android app Evil King Media (EKM), which provided free access to ‘pirate’ IPTV streams, VOD content and music has been targeted by Sky. Following the forced removal of the software from Github after several other takedowns filed with Google, the developer says the app is now discontinued so should be deleted.

Sierra Norte Adventure Park in Seville, fun for the whole family: Located in the Natural Park. Security measures observed. The park offers many activities: tree climbing, bridge tours, zip lines, rock climbing, “jump into the void” and there is even a shooting gallery where you can practice. One of the most interesting activities is the adventure tree circuit. With two modalities, adapted for all types of public, the walk in height, and surrounded by forest, is an experience that will please young and old.
The jump into the void, from a 10-meter high pine, or rappel, which is combined with a climbing wall, are other options to enjoy an adventurous day.
The Cazalla de la Sierra train station is 800 meters from the park , making it a good transport option to travel from Seville. The rate to enjoy all the circuits is 15 euros per person. The “no limits” mode gives access to all activities for 3 hours except jumping into the void.

Government denies return of state of alarm as Covid-19 numbers continue to tick up : (Despite what has been incorrectly reported in a now deleted EuroWeeklyNews headline/article, there have been no confirmed plans for a new state of alarm to be enacted. The Ministers were simply discussing plans in case of a future surge in Cocid cases. EWN was forced by public responses to the fake headline to publish a clarification. When a newspaper uses social media posts for a news source, then it cannot be trusted to be accurate. They should know better. -Ed. )
The Central government said on Thursday that it had no plans to bring back a state of alarm, despite there being 580 monitored localised outbreaks in Spain.

The Government has approved this week Royal Decree 736/2020 that regulates the installation of individual meters in buildings with central heating and cooling systems, with the aim of individually measuring the consumption of each neighbor: In this way, the transposition of the European Directive 2012/27 on Energy Efficiency has been completed. A regulation that will affect buildings built prior to 1998, the year in which the Regulation of Thermal Installations in buildings was approved and that will change the way in which the heating costs of thousands of Spanish homes are invoiced, which could save 18 euros per month , according to industry sources.
This will affect, estimate from the Spanish Association of Heating Cost Distributors (AERCCA), 1,100,000 homes throughout Spain (about 100,000 homes would already have this system installed). The Government has designed a calendar for adaptation with a final date of May 2023.

Christian meeting hall: Just to inform all those DigameXtra readers who may be interested, every Sunday (God willing) at 11:00 am Calle Ros Alférez, Torre Del Mar  (not far behind the Catholic Church), we meet in the new Christian meeting hall in Torre del Mar.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
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 lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
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 and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
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 customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).

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.

Fears in Spain popular airline easyJet to the Costa del Sol & Costa Blanca set to go BUST: The latest figures reveal turnover was £104 million for this time last year and has been a shocking £7 million so far this year as its share price drops 65 per cent and the company prepare to close Newcastle, Stansted and Southend operations according to reports. Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/08/04/fears-in-spain-popular-airline-easyjet-to-the-costa-del-sol-costa-blanca-set-to-go-bust/

 

The Costa del Sol suffering many muggings and robberies as poverty sets in: According to the police muggings and bag snatches are now at the highest rate since the 2009/10 period. House robberies are also on the increase too as thieves adopt new tactics.
“In the last seven days, nine home robberies have come from bag snatches where details have been obtained and also a theft of a high powered sports car,” an officer warned.
Another scenario taking place, especially in the region of the feria ground in Fuengirola is ‘door knocking for cash’ – the door knockers are requesting a euro for food from unsuspecting homeowners or tenants in apartment blocks, as the person goes to collect a coin, thieves pounce and grab what they can and run whilst the front door is open or not locked.

Recommendations & Requests

 

Thanks to everyone who answered my request for help with Amazon returns: I want to thank Ron & Margaret who provided me instructions for having the return picked up at my door, which was done this morning. I am pleasantly suprised at how easy it was. I submitted the return on Friday, it was picked up Monday morning. Here are the tricks to get Amazon returns picked up from your door. After you click the RETURN button it only appears to offer two options, take it to Celeris or take it to Correos. BUT if you look closely you will find “see other options”, click on that and it offers you the pickup option. NOTE: If you have already initiated the return and have choosen Celeris or Correos, you will need to first cancel that return. Then start the return again fresh, click return, then you will see the “see other options” option. Naythan, Torrox Costa. doctorlaptop At protonmail d0t com

Malaga Airport Delays: Spain’s Malaga airport on the Costa del Sol announces security delays and advises that all travellers turn up at least 3 hours before planned flights.

Ex-King Exiles Himself After Suffering Corruption Scandal: A series of corrupt actions have come to light over the past few months, bringing with it reputational damage to the monarchy in Spain. The former king expressed his decision to move in a statement which was issued today, Monday.
He was recently shown to be involved in a high-speed rail contract in Saudi Arabia for which he received a $100 million from the late Saudi King. Furthermore, he was involved in an affair where his mistress received $65 million, which led to his abdication in 2014.
Jordi Sanchez, one of several separatist Catalan leaders jailed for their role in the region’s failed independence bid in 2017, said he remained incarcerated on the grounds that he was a flight risk. He called on the High Court to withhold the former king’s passport. “Where is justice in Spain?,” he tweeted.

He died in a care home in his native Londonderry in the early hours of Monday, his family said in a statement. PHOTO:REUTERS/Clodagh Kilcoyne.

Volunteers needed Urgently: TAILs charity shops Urgently need your help.
We need volunteers to work in our 2 shops on Torrox Costa. If you can spare 1 day a week, (10am to 2 pm Monday to Saturday). We desperately need you to help continue with our fundraising to help the dozens of abandoned dogs in our kennels. So many of our volunteers return to the U.K. or their home countries for the hot summer months , leaving us desperately short of staff to open the two shops.
Call in to our shop at El Faro, Opposite Russell’s or phone: Ian 620694825

Costa del Sol Set for Saharan Sand Storm that could Blanket the Coast: Meteorologist David Pinkitt has warned that a Saharan sand storm is brewing up in Northern Africa that threatens to blanket the entire Costa del Sol. Should it occur it would not be the first time the Coast has been ‘showered in sand’.

Spain’s economy posts historic 18.5% quarterly fall due to coronavirus lockdown: New data shows that output has fallen to levels not seen since the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This is the largest quarterly drop since the days of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). This means that during the first half of the year, a fourth of Spain’s gross domestic product (GDP) went up in smoke due to the strict restrictions introduced to curb the coronavirus epidemic. The lost production amounts to around €300 billion, a figure that would be enough to cover pension payments for Spain’s 10 million retirees for two years.

Chrysalis-shaped space nebula turns into a butterfly: A chrysalis-shaped space nebula discovered in 1835 has become a butterfly that floats and flutters across the sky more than 3,000 light-years from Earth. In 1835, the English astronomer John Herschel discovered a planetary nebula located in the southern constellation Vela, which was called NGC 2899.
A planetary nebula is an emission nebula that has been ejected by a red giant star in the last moments of its life.
Originally it was appreciated that NGC 2899 had a curved, chrysalis-like shape, somewhat unusual for a planetary nebula, which is normally rotationally symmetric in one or more axes.
Now, the world’s most advanced astronomical observatory for visible light, ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), has obtained for the first time a precise image of that nebula and discovered that the chrysalis has become a butterfly. The image uncovers a cosmic butterfly, with a symmetrical structure, beautiful colors and intricate patterns, that seems to float and flutter across the sky.

Google’s Rigged Search Results Kill Off Competition: The search engine dedicated almost half of the first page of results in our test to its own products, which dominated the coveted top of the page. n Google’s early years, users would type in a query and get back a page of 10 “blue links” that led to different websites. “We want to get you out of Google and to the right place as fast as possible,” co-founder Larry Page said in 2004.
Today, Google often considers that “right place” to be Google, an investigation by The Markup has found. We examined more than 15,000 recent popular queries and found that Google devoted 41 percent of the first page of search results on mobile devices to its own properties and what it calls “direct answers,” which are populated with information copied from other sources, sometimes without their knowledge or consent.
When we examined the top 15 percent of the page, the equivalent of the first screen on an iPhone X, that figure jumped to 63 percent. For one in five searches in our sample, links to external websites did not appear on the first screen at all!
Google’s decision to place its products above competitors’ and to present “answers” on the search page has led to lawsuits and regulatory fines. A number of websites said it killed their revenues—and their companies. Founders of both innovative startups and companies that had been around for a decade or more told The Markup that once Google started placing its product first, they didn’t stand a chance.

Why You Should Stop Using Facebook Messenger: {Forbes.com}- The sad truth is that Messenger is seriously lacking on the security front. And this is a problem which is both getting worse and which Facebook cannot easily fix.
“Users choosing to communicate via Messenger must understand the real threat to their information within such apps,” warns ESET cybersecurity guru Jake Moore. “Although many may think the content in their messages isn’t personal, the real issue is that any information on you is open to abuse in the wrong hands.” Full article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/07/25/why-you-should-stop-using-facebook-messenger-encryption-whatsapp-update-twitter-hack/

 

Data isn’t just being collected from your phone. It’s being used to score you: {The Washington Post}- Operating in the shadows of the online marketplace, specialized tech companies you’ve likely never heard of are tapping vast troves of our personal data to generate secret “surveillance scores” – digital mug shots that supposedly predict our future behavior. The firms sell their scoring services to major businesses.
People with low scores can suffer harsh consequences.
CoreLogic and TransUnion say that scores they peddle to landlords can predict whether a potential tenant will pay the rent on time, be able to “absorb rent increases,” or break a lease. Large employers use HireVue, a firm that generates an “employability” score about candidates by analyzing “tens of thousands of factors,” including a person’s facial expressions and voice intonations. Other employers use Cornerstone’s score, which considers where a job prospect lives and which web browser they use to judge how successful they will be at a job.
Brand-name retailers purchase “risk scores” from Retail Equation to help make judgments about whether consumers commit fraud when they return goods for refunds. Players in the gig economy use outside firms such as Sift to score consumers’ “overall trustworthiness.” Wireless customers predicted to be less profitable are sometimes forced to endure longer customer service hold times.
Auto insurers raise premiums based on scores calculated using information from smartphone apps that track driving styles. Large analytics firms monitor whether we are likely to take our medication based on our propensity to refill our prescriptions; pharmaceutical companies, health-care providers and insurance companies can use those scores to, among other things, “match the right patient investment level to the right patients.”
Surveillance scoring is the product of two trends. First is the rampant (and mostly unregulated) collection of every intimate detail about our lives, amassed by the nanosecond from smartphones to cars, toasters to toys. This fire hose of data – most of which we surrender voluntarily – includes our demographics, income, facial characteristics, the sound of our voice, our precise location, shopping history, medical conditions, genetic information, what we search for on the Internet, the websites we visit, when we read an email, what apps we use and how long we use them, and how often we sleep, exercise and the like.
The second trend driving these scores is the arrival of technologies able to instantaneously crunch this data: exponentially more powerful computers and high-speed communications systems such as 5G, which lead to the scoring algorithms that use artificial intelligence to rate all of us in some way.
The result: automated decisions, based on each consumer’s unique score, that are, as a practical matter, irreversible. Full article: https://www.chron.com/opinion/article/Data-isn-t-just-being-collected-from-your-phone-15449776.php
