Dog owners are being urged to be extra observant whilst out walking their dogs.

Rafa Ends Year On Top, Again: Rafael Nadal will celebrate ending the year as world number one after his victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas at the ATP Finals. Even if he doesn’t win the ATP final, he will leave London with the year-end world number one title and trophy.
It is the fifth time Nadal has ended the year ranked first, tying with Federer, Djokovic and Jimmy Connors and becomes the oldest year-end No. 1 in ATP history for a second time, years after many experts thought that Rafa would be retired.

The End of an Institution? Why watching football at your local bar in Spain could soon end!: Sky-high subscription fees means more than 50,000 bar owners in Spain are struggling to make a profit from showing football on their TV screens.
That’s primarily because the main telecoms companies – Movistar, Vodafone and Orange – charge them around €300 a month to have the right to broadcast football in a public place.
Each one of the broadcasters offers its own particular package with the rights to different football leagues only they can show, so for bars that specialize in showing international football and sport, monthly subscription fees near €1,000.
In the case of Movistar’s LaLiga TV Bar – the only TV channel with a license to show Spanish first division matches in a public place – their justification for the pricey fee is that the average football aficionado will spend €13 during the two and half hours they stay at the bar. The reality however suggests that customers don’t spend as much as that.
According to SES Astra, a company that specializes in monitoring TV signals via satellite, 57,000 out of the 120,000 bars, cafés and restaurants in Spain with a TV actually broadcast content illegally, usually via pirate websites. “Illegally streaming or broadcasting football can result in a piracy lawsuit being opened up against you, with fines of more than €6,000 and the temporary closure of your establishment,” Movistar has warned bar owners across the country. “It can even result in prison sentences for the culprits,” SES Astra director Luis Sahún warned.
With exorbitant sports TV licenses unlikely to be reduced and increasingly stringent rules surrounding illegal broadcasting in Spain, many cash-strapped bar owners are now faced with a difficult choice.
Is it the end of football showing in the background in Spanish bars?
Probably not, but it may be a rarity rather than a mainstay. (And what will this really accomplish? A relatively insignificant few extra million euros for some huge tech companies. In the end the real beneficiaries may be the radio stations while the small, family run local big-screen tv vendors take a beating. Ed.)

Sporting heroes are on the Costa del Sol for The Marca Sport Weekend Marbella: The event, organised by theMarbella City Council and the leading sports newspaper, will bring together more than 80 professionals and legends from a wade range of sports in 50 free activities. The event will begin on Friday with several highlights such as meetings with Boris Becker and Mick Doohan, the so-called ‘Craziest match in history’, which will feature footballers Vero Boquete, Diego Forlán and Carlos Cuellar with a hundred youth players.
There will also be a talk and screening of the Spain-Malta match won by Spain 12-1 and considered the most incredible feat in the history of Spanish football, despite some detractors who believe running up high scores is counter productive to the overall health of the sport. Should make for an interesting discussion.
On Saturday morning the programmes starts at 10.15 am, with the talk titled ‘Making a star’ by Toni Nadal, followed by a meeting with world record holder Hicham El Guerrouj and Fermín Cacho. There will also be an exhibition by the 2010 BMX world champion, Viky Gomez and simultaneous chess games against Anatoli Karpov. Football fans will be able to view a debate on the Spanish national leagues with the presence of the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, and Atlético de Madrid’s Enrique Cerezo, among others. Many more events are scheduled.
The complete programme can be seen at https://www.sportweekend.com/

Venice ‘on its knees’ after second-worst flood ever recorded: Venice, Italy (AP) – The worst flooding in Venice in more than 50 years prompted calls Wednesday to better protect the historic city from rising sea levels as officials calculated hundreds of millions of euros in damage. More than 85% of the city was flooded. The water reached 1.87 meters (6.14 feet) above average sea level Tuesday, the second-highest level ever recorded in the city and just 7 centimeters (2½ inches) lower than the historic 1966 flood. Another wave of exceptionally high water followed Wednesday. AP Photos/Luca Bruno  https://apnews.com/2e212a874a064ce4af63dc3ffda0258e

(dailymail.co.uk) ‘You couldn’t make this up!’: Furious backlash after it emerges that Google has secretly amassed healthcare data on millions of people; AND TO MAKE THINGS WORSE…Google just reached a deal to acquire FitBit: (Google has been caught in USA, but do you really believe Google restricts it’s data abuses exclusively to the USA? How long will it be till your Fitbit is feeding live data to your health insurance provider, under cover of offering you discounts for good readings of course?-Ed.)
Lawyers, medical professionals and tech experts have reacted with a mixture of horror and fury after it emerged that Google has been secretly acquiring sensitive medical data on millions of people without their knowledge or consent.
Analysts called for an immediate change to privacy laws after Google and Ascension, the healthcare organization it has partnered with, boasted that the scheme is completely legal. There were big-tech pundits defending the data snatch and privacy invasion  as “community health progress” on TRE Radio and other media networks yesterday.
Dr. Robert Epstein, an author, medical researcher and former editor-in-chief at the respected journal Psychology Today, summed up the mood when he tweeted: ‘You can’t make this s*** up. #BeAfraid.’

Apple Mobile Device Update Alert!: iOS 13.2.2 causes battery havoc- short life and overheating!
Apple’s iOS 13.2.2 update, which was pushed out to fix a bug in the previous update that essentially broke multitasking on the iPhone and iPad, has itself bought a new and annoying bug to the iPhone. Battery life is now reportedly so bad that one can watch their battery life ticking down while browsing the web, composing an email, or using Twitter. The problem doesn’t seem to be down to specific apps, but instead seems to be a widespread operating system problem. Refrain from installing this update to iOS 13.2.2 until it is fixed; ignore the warnings in the press last week that encouraged users to do this update asap. The problem the previous update fixes is less critical for most users than this new battery problem. Photo:ZDNet

Good News for the Mobility Impared: In the latest episode of Smart Regions, new electric tricycles that resemble Roman chariots have begun appearing in France. They are calling the vehicle the “Benur” and the project is backed by the EU’s Cohesion Policy. The vehicles can also be pedalled with the rider’s hands and are already a hit with people with impaired mobility.
To begin with, the vehicles will be located, on two sections of Viarhona: Miribel-Jonage and Tain-Tournon. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region wants to be the ‘flagship’ territory for this mobility project. ViaRhôna project manager Yves Ronot is excited by the potential of the inclusive vehicle.

Spanish Election Results, Updated 02:00 Monday: Socialists win repeat Spanish election, far-right Vox becomes third-biggest force in Congress.
The Socialist Party (PSOE) of caretaker Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez won the highest number of seats but fell short of an absolute majority at the repeat general election in Spain on Sunday.
With around 99% of the vote counted, the PSOE had taken 120 seats – three fewer than the result it managed at the April 28 general election. The conservative Popular Party (PP) won 87 seats – a major gain from the 66 seats it secured in April, its worst result ever. But far-right group Vox saw the most significant rise, jumping from 24 to 52 seats, to become the third-largest party in Spain’s lower house, the Congress of Deputies.
Unidas Podemos – a coalition of United Left and anti-austerity group Podemos – retained 35 of the 42 seats it won at the last election, while the center-right party Ciudadanos (Citizens) suffered a crushing defeat, losing more than 40 seats to be left with just 10. The inconclusive results mean that Spain is facing more political uncertainty, as neither the left-wing or right-wing blocs have the 176 seats needed for an absolute majority in the 350-seat Congress.
Since 2017, Spanish politics has been defined by a lack of parliamentary majorities and the inability of politicians to reach governing deals. Sunday’s vote was the fourth general election Spain has held in as many years.  . https://elpais.com/elpais/2019/11/10/inenglish/1573407794_574125.html

Inside Amazon’s plan for Alexa to run your entire life: Speaking with MIT Technology Review, Rohit Prasad, Alexa’s head scientist, has now revealed further details about where Alexa is headed next. The crux of the plan is for the voice assistant to move from passive to proactive interactions. Rather than wait for and respond to requests, Alexa will anticipate what the user might want. The idea is to turn Alexa into an omnipresent companion that actively shapes and orchestrates your life. This will require Alexa to get to know you better than ever before. Photo:Amazon

Apple’s New Credit Card Has Launched And You Can’t Have One: The Apple Credit Card, created in partnership with Goldman Sachs and MasterCard, combines excellent rewards with a consumer-friendly app. It offers 3% cash back on all Apple purchases, 2% cash back on all purchases made on the card through Apple Pay, and 1% cash back on other purchases. The card charges no fees, offers daily cash back, and works with the Apple Pay app designed to help consumers understand the consequences of paying off a credit card over time. While Apple Pay Has Reached The EU, sadly, there’s still no word on when Apple Card might be available outside of the USA. When Apple debuted Apple Pay in the USA it was 5yrs before it was available in the EU. The Apple Card debuted in the USA in August. Wonder how long it takes to get to the EU? https://www.cultofmac.com/659030/apple-pay-expands-reach-europe/   Photo:Apple

Malaga Malware Update: A total of 28,936 devices with internet access are affected in Malaga by some kind of cybersecurity problem. The data from the Institute of Cybersecurity places Malaga province second in Andalucía for the number of infections on internet capable devices.
According to the latest Google report, ‘Panorama actual de la Ciberseguridad en España’, an extensive document resulting from a long investigation in which several conclusions stand out, among them, amazingly, that three out of every 10 IT managers in SME’s (small to medium enterprises) in Spain are unaware of the concept of cybersecurity!?! The report says: “Almost 3 million companies in Spain have little or no protection against hackers.” In addition it says: “Two-thirds of Spanish companies lack enough employees to combat cyberspace threats.” Full details at: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/11/06/be-internet-secure/

Opening and recruiting: Dear creative people, My name is Yolanda de Wilde Gijzemijter and I am the owner of La Yola concept store in Vélez-Malaga, which will open its doors within a few weeks. This type of store is becoming increasingly well known in northern Europe and there are already a number of them in northern Spain.
In the store I sell gorgeous (handmade) original products from (small) entrepreneurs/webshops/illustrators who would like to sell their products in a physical store. Think of baby and children’s clothing, trendy modern jewelry, (hand) bags, home accessories, lamps, stationary, decoration, pillows, skin care products etcetera.
The concept of the store is actually quite simple. You can rent sales space for a monthly fee. These sales areas are for example a shelf in a closet, a sideboard, display case, table, wall rack and so on, there are many possibilities. The space and price will be discussed. As we present your products attractively, promote them (online) and wrap them up nicely if desired, La Yola asks 10% commission on the sold items. Once a month we pay you the proceeds of the products sold. And you pay us the rent for the agreed space every month. That’s it!
I am actively present on social media and will also promote your brand. I use a real-time sales / cash register system so you can keep track of your own sales.
There are still spaces available, so if you would like to offer your products in a real shop and get extra promotion, then I would very much like to get in touch with you! Please send me some pictures of your products, a description of them and some information about yourself to yodewilde@gmail.com or contact me via WhatsApp (+34)600 79 43 25. And feel free to ask all your questions!
Besides, I am Dutch and also speak Spanish, English and German.

RANSOMWARE Returns To Spain: VIRAL Story DOMINATING The Spanish Tech and Business News Today. If you own a business and do not have robust, professionally managed IT security in place you are taking a large risk. Daily backup may help you recover, but many smaller companies without a dedicated IT department don’t even do weekly backups! Can you afford to be locked out of your data? Can you afford to pay ransom? Everis, one of the largest IT consulting companies in Spain, suffered a targeted ransomware attack on Monday, forcing the company to shut down all its computer systems until the issue gets resolved completely. The attackers asked Everis for a €750,000 ($835,923) ransom to get a decryption key to unlock their files as reported by bitcoin.es. Spain’s largest radio station SER (Sociedad Española de Radiodifusión) confirmed it had also been hit, saying it had suffered an attack “of the ransomware type” which has had a serious and widespread effect on all of all its computer systems.”
Here are some articles explaining the very serious situation. If you need fast, affordable help to get your business IT security up to current standards call DoctorLaptop on 675 993 069 (no calls before 11am answered, missed calls returned asap). I can test your local office network and wifi and internet/router connections to resolve any weak points, do a cloud interface security analysis of all cloud accounts, and check individual computers for infection and adequate protection. I can also review your data handling protocols for vulnerabilities. And please, don’t rely on a single free antivirus app to protect a valuable business. In today’s world all businesses need to budget for internet security and computer maintenance.
