Business News: PSOE-Podemos governing plan will see hikes on taxes and the minimum wage.
EL PAÍS has had access to details of the policies the parties will implement should their planned coalition government become a reality next week. Here are some details.
-Income tax for those earning more than €130,000 a year will rise by two percentage points, and by four percentage points for those who earn more than €300,000. Capital gains tax will also rise by four percentage points above €140,000, to 27% compared to the current 23%. Corporate tax will have a new minimum rate of 15%, while banks and energy firms will have to pay 18%.
-Ditch a law that allows for companies to fire workers who take official sick leave, as well as introducing measures to combat precarious and temporary jobs.
-Minimum wage could rise by as much as 60%, meaning the monthly sum paid to workers on this rate could reach as much as €1,200.
-Regarding pensions, plans to eliminate the formula that links pensions to life expectancy, as well as getting rid of the revaluation index, which sees pension rises subject to the performance of the Spanish economy. Full details:

Misleading labeling means that many people are not aware that many food products are being imported: As Spaniards prepare to sit down for their Christmas feast, they may be surprised to learn that much of their food has come from outside of Spain. The lamb being sold as Spanish may in fact be from Italy or France; the hake may come from the waters of northern Europe, Chile or Angola, and there is a 60% chance that the bass has not come from a fish farm in Guadalajara, in central Spain, but from Turkey, and a 20% chance it has come from Greece.

Scam Alert: The National Police have issued a warning to those living in Spain about a new scam carried out by a criminal gang through the Correos postal service targeting a victim’s bank accounts.
The gang are able to carry out their activities through connections with employees working at Correos, Spain’s most widely used postal service. Here, they are passed customer’s personal details from forms that are filled out and handed over at the counter.
Once the group have a customer’s mobile number, they send an SMS message stating that a parcel was undeliverable and to organise a redelivery through a provided electronic link. Once following the instructions, victims are then prompted to enter their bank details, where the scammers are then able to withdraw money from their bank account.
The National Police have therefore issued a warning to alert those who use Correos to apply extra caution if they receive an SMS and to check the authenticity of it by contacting their local postal office. Anyone who believes they have been a victim of the crime are advised to contact the authorities immediately.

“The Memory of Water. The Water doesn’t resist. The Water flows. When you immerse a hand in the water you can only feel a caress. The Water isn’t a wall, it can’t stop you. It goes wherever wants to go and nothing can stop it . The water is patient. The dripping water consumes a stone. Wherever The water passes it brings life, without asking for anything in return. Our body is 70% water and water has a memory …. Our trio, completely Made in Italy, joined together as 3 rivers converge, merging completely with a common language: MUSIC. Expressed with great strength and originality. Although We play known and familiar songs from around the world, we give them a very personal touch, with jazz colors, blues style, which implies a lot of improvisation and creativity. The trio plays in tuning 432hz, which through the water present in our body provides a feeling of physical and spiritual well-being, greater than tuning 440 hz.”  FB Link

DoctorLaptop Open Thru The Holidays To Set Up Your New Devices: Lots of you will be receiving new computers/tablets from Santa, and will be anxious to start using them asap. You will save yourself trouble in the long run if you take the time now to get them setup correctly from the start. Doing a correct initial setup is far better than trying to sort out and fix errors resulting from an incorrect setup done because you were in a hurry to try out your new gift. I will be closed on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Other days I will be available to get your new devices setup correctly and to copy your data over to them. All work by appointment. Please make appointments by phone call to 675 993 069. No calls before 11am answered, missed calls returned asap. For email support questions send to doctorlaptop@protonmail.com ; be sure to include the make and model numbers of devices, and what version of Windows/Apple/Linux you are using. And here is a hint for those of you who took the time to read down this far. When setting up a new Windows 10 computer, you can avoid the requirement of connecting it to the Microsoft network with an Outlook.com email address, and avoid many of the intrusive Win 10 snooping features, by not connecting your computer to the internet until after the initial setup has been completed. When the setup screen gets to the stage where it asks you to connect to the internet, do not do so. There is always a way to proceed without connecting the internet. In some cases there is a button in the lower left of the screen that says “skip this step”, if no such button, just click “next” in the lower right of the screen. After you have completed the setup, and restarted the unit, then you can connect to the internet. Merry Christmas everybody! Naythan/Torrox Costa

Recommendations

Christmas Thanks: I want to express my extreme gratitude to Annie, Stuart and their friends from Velez Malaga who again this year chipped in on a huge Christmas basket they delivered to my workshop Friday. Where they found a vac-bag sealed half a smoked turkey is a mystery?!? The can of chunky style cranberry sauce and the hefty half a cheesecake will likely be the height of my Christmas eating and calorie intake. Well done folks! -Naythan the Hungry / Torrox Costa doctorlaptop At protonmail DoT com

Recommendations

Good Morning to all swimming pool owners: In March this year I requested quotes from a number of pool cleaning companies to clean my two Liner swimming pools to be ready for the summer, I had one or two suggestions including replacing the pools with fiberglass or concrete, two weeks later I arrived at the properties only to discover that both liners had been destroyed, please take this as a warning to always be resident at the properties when requesting any work to be done.
Happy Christmas & All the best for the New Year.

-Thank You for the Christmas Carol Service Success
The Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar Ecumenical Carol Service was held on Saturday 14th December in the Parish Church of San Andres in Torre del Mar, where Christians from different traditions, International friends and residents in the Axarquia, came together to pray and enjoy the traditional carols. The prayers were led by the Rev. James Tayler- Episcopal Reformed Spanish Church, Don Juan Francisco Cardaldas G.- Torre del Mar Parish Priest, Pastor Manfred Ottertstaetter- Evangelical German Church, Rev Anelisse Bager- Danish Church, readings by various members of the congregation and the carols were performed by the Spanish Choir “Amigos de Lux Mundi” director Julio Bautista, the German Choir “Con Los Cantores” director Lisa Kropp and the TIMS English Choir director Margaret Williams. It was a most enjoyable Service, with the congregation joining in the various carols, the words of which were displayed on large screens at the sides of the church and the service ended in candle light with the congregation holding candles. After the Service many of the friends and the choirs enjoyed drinks and a buffet supper in the upper room of the church and of course there was more carol singing. We would like to give thanks to all those from the community who came to support this especial event of Lux Mundi and for their generosity, 630 Euros were collected which will be distributed by the Parish Church to help families and children in need.
