The performances of the Young Choir have reaped many successes in the capital of Malaga, having performed in emblematic places such as the Church of San Agustin, Church of the Holy Martyrs, Jorge Rando Museum, Maria Cristina Hall, Carmen Thyssen Museum.

While the collection is impressive for its sheer volume, the data doesn’t include sensitive information like passwords, credit card numbers, or Social Security numbers. It does, though, contain profiles of hundreds of millions of people that include home and cell phone numbers, associated social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Github, work histories seemingly scraped from LinkedIn, almost 50 million unique phone numbers, and 622 million unique email addresses.

More stars for Malaga restaurants in the 2020 Michelin Guide: Benito Gómez and Marcos Granda have been awarded two stars, but Kabuki Raw has lost its distinction.
A year ago, Dani García made history in Lisbon by becoming the first chef from Malaga to be awarded three Michelin stars. Malaga is once again in the news, because for the first time two restaurants from the province can boast two stars at the same time: Benito Gómez’s Bardal, in Ronda, and Marcos Granda’s Skina, in Marbella. The Michelin Guide had particular praise for Mario Cachinero, the young chef at Skina, in Marbella, saying that he demonstrates true talent in constructing a creative cuisine which evolves traditional Andalusian recipes.

Another blunder by Spanish owned UK Bank: An overnight error with its computer system has meant that thousands of customers of the TSB Bank (which was taken over by Spain’s Banco Sabadell) have been left without funds. Salary payments, pensions and other transfers did not go into customer accounts as they should, leaving many in a difficult financial situation, unable to pay bills which were falling due.
The bank apologised and invited customers to keep a record of any financial losses that may have occurred so that compensation could be paid. Article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/11/22/another-blunder-by-spanish-owned-uk-bank/#.XdhO7Zko_rd
