Wanted: Baby walker. Michele/Nerja



Recommendation for SPW Construction:
My wife and I settled into our new home near Competa five years ago. We quickly discovered numerous hidden vices, so commonly discovered due to poor building standards. One of the major problems we encountered was that of rising damp. No less than seven different people attempted to “fix” the problem, but in fact, only patched things up. Parts of our walls and ceilings had turned black and we were getting desperate. I looked at an ad on Digamextra published by SPW, and the word “damp” caught my eye. I called Scott Wilson and he came by three days later, on Sunday. To make a long story short, the house is dry and like new. Scott searched and found no less than five or six different leaks, including the swimming pool itself.
How not to give Scott Wilson and his team an A+++ for the job they finished to perfection just yesterday?
What makes this man superior to anyone else we’ve encountered in four different countries and three different continents?
1. Scott was an apprentice for six years, the first four of which he attended classroom theory once a week.
2. He works with a very select team of tradesmen that he has personally trained himself, and from whom, he expects the best performance.
3. Unlike so many guys who head up a small building company, he works along with his men. He was here on the site every day and made sure the job was perfect.
4. He mentioned once near the beginning that he strives not only to do the job as described in the quote, but always tries to go s step farther. He and his team showed that to us on several occasions during the time they worked on our house.
5. He also said that he wasn’t cheap. Well, if he doesn’t mind, I would reword that and say: “Given the high standards to which he works, he isn’t expensive.
6. Scott speaks fluent Spanish, which is obviously an advantage to a Spanish customer, but also when buying materials.
7. He listens to what you have to say, and always reacts positively. The numerous occasions where he demonstrated this would fill several pages of a book.
8. We also required a plumber, an electrician and a carpenter. Scott brought in some of the best we’ve ever seen. The electrician fixed a niggly problem in five minutes, which had stumped others for three years.,
I think that all of us want to take pride in our respective homes, and we were frankly losing hope. Scott Wilson took us out of the dark ages of the building trade in this country and has now allowed us to once again take pride in our lovely home.
What better way to conclude than to say that we’ve hired Scott and his team for another major job that will be starting early July.

Assistance in Spain: I have been in Spain for a while. I am an expat and I have my residency papers. However, due to ill health I am unable to work at the moment.

Tech News by DoctorLaptop

2019 Will Go Down In History As The Last Year You could Believe What You See With Your Own Two Eyes!
-What if techniques were developed to make perfect alterations to videos, where any image of a person can be made to say anything?
-What happens when anyone can dispute video evidence, claiming the damning evidence to be undetectably altered? Will all video evidence showing a suspect saying something be declared invalid?
Scientists at Stanford are doing their part to build what will be an inevitable dystopian nightmare, creating havoc in the news industry and courts.  The staff at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, Princeton University and Adobe Research have just announced (what many techies already suspected) that they have developed software that allows you to undetectably edit and change what people are saying in videos, allowing anyone to edit anybody into saying anything, according to Observer (https://observer.com/2019/06/ai-deepfake-videos-mark-zuckerberg-joe-rogan/). “Deep-Fake” videos have already appeared on Facebook, Twitter, and on “celebrity” porn sites. Famous deep-fake victims include Mark Zuckerberg, Joe Rogan and Katy Perry.
The software uses machine learning and 3-D models of the target’s face to generate new footage which allows the user to change, edit and remove words that are coming out of a person’s mouth on video, simply by typing in new text. Not only that, the changes appear to have a seamless audio/visual flow without cuts. Go here for details and examples: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-13/watch-scientists-create-deepfake-software-allowing-anyone-edit-anything-anyone-says
