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
