How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Costa Del Sol Weather Forecast- Expect a drop in temperature and rain from Tuesday until Thursday morning: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/02/17/costa-del-sol-weather-forecast-expect-a-drop-in-temperature-and-rain-from-tuesday-until-thursday-morning/


This new technology generates electricity “out of nowhere”: Scientists at the University of Massachusetts- Amherst have developed the device. Named ‘Air-gen’, it connects electrodes to protein nanowires in such a way that electric current is generated from water vapor naturally present in the atmosphere. “We are literally producing electricity from nowhere,” Yao notes.
The new technology developed in Yao’s laboratory is non-polluting, renewable and low cost. It can generate energy even in areas with extremely low humidity, such as the Sahara desert.
It has significant advantages over other forms of renewable energy, such as solar and wind, Lovley says, because unlike these other sources of renewable energy, the ‘Air-gen’ does not require sunlight or wind, and “even works indoors”.
