A Chorus Line at the Soho Caixabank Theatre in Malaga: The musical, to be launched by actor Antonio Banderas as the opening show in his new theatre project, opens on 18 October in Malaga but is already being promoted around the country.
Antonio Banderas co-directs the show, to be performed in Spanish but maintaining some of the original song lyrics in English, with American actress and choreographer Bayork Lee (who performed in the original show in New York in 1975). The actor has said that anyone who wants to see him on stage will have to go to the Malaga theatre as he will move on to new acting commitments next year.
While the show will not officially be launched until 19 September, Banderas has said that tickets will be on sale at prices ranging between 18 and 70 euros.

Meteorite Shower- The Tears of St Lawrence: In Spanish the phenomenon is known as Lágrimas de San Lorenzo – the tears of St Lawrence – because the best viewing nights often occur around the feast day on August 10th of the Spanish saint martyred in 258 AD. The meteorite shower is visible across the northern hemisphere but will be especially good in southern Europe. The shower has been active since the 17th of July and will continue until August 24th. Activity will peak this weekend and early next week, when the best stargazing expected on the nights of August 11th. 12th and 13th before the moon becomes full on the 15th and the sky to light to view the expected 100 meteorites falling per hour.
Stay up late or for the best results rise early as some of the best showings occur just before dawn.
The shooting stars are visible to the naked eye so no need for binoculars or a telescope but allow yourself to become accustomed to the darkness which usually takes around 20 minutes. And have patience as the shower comes in spurts – nothing for a while and then a sudden flurry of activity.

More Bad News For WhatsApp Users:
-A series of vulnerabilities in WhatsApp which could permit hackers to tamper with conversations have been made public. On Wednesday, Check Point security researchers revealed three methods of attack. According to the team, the bugs “could allow threat actors to intercept and manipulate messages sent in both private and group conversations, giving attackers immense power to create and spread misinformation from what appear to be trusted sources.”
Facebook (who owns WhatsApp) said the WhatsApp bugs were due to “limitations that can’t be solved due to their structure and architecture,” according to the Financial Times. Well that’s not very reassuring now is it? Source Link

-Free online services allow you to track a WhatsApp user’s location easily via their mobile device. There are up-sides and down-sides. Is it keeping track of your kids or is it spying on your partner? You’ll have to decide for yourself. All you have to do is get them to click on a link you send them. Watch this disturbing video for details. I post this for educational purposes only, never track anyone without their permission.
