Interpreter: Good morning everyone, I went to torrox pueblo health center this morning, with a patient. I had warned him that they may not let me in with him, as some centers might not allow a second person , and that there are interpreters which they can contact on the phone, if necessary. But he wanted the assurance of an interpreter he knew. Well, I was welcomed with open arms, by both the doctor and the nurses, who told me that it was near to impossible to get an interpreter when they needed one. (They must be so busy now)
So, I’m just putting this out there. If you are going to the health center and you want to be sure that there is an interpreter available, do call me. I’m always at the end of the phone.

It’s business as usual on the Internet, and Internet services bills must still be paid! There is no sponsor income during the lockdown. From the beginning of lockdown I put all sponsor accounts on hold until they can operate again. So, businesses and readers, please consider making a donation or becoming a DigameXtra Sponsor to help pay the production expenses and WordPress bills. Email for sponsorship info. You can join the Sponsor list and be rewarded with extra posting privileges. Donations of cash or your old but working computers, tablets or smartphones graciously accepted. You may drop these off at the DigameXtra office in Torrox Costa, but please call before coming over, 675 993 069. Or I can meet you at the Torrox Costa Lidl or Aldi or tobacco shop near the bus station if that makes it easier for you. Another possibility is to buy Amazon gift cards online and have them sent to me. Sorry, no bank or Paypal. Donations are not tax deductable. Thank you.

A BIG thanks to D.B for delivering a donation of surplus computer gear yesterday. -Ed.


Restaurant & Market Deliveries and Open Services

If your business is allowed to operate during the lockdown, send in your details for inclusion to let Readers know. If you know for certain a restaurant is still delivering (none should be offering take-away at this point), have them send in the details including Name of Restaurant, Location, Phone Number, Hours and a photo of their menu (optional). Unfortunately I have received some inaccurate info from well meaning 3rd parties which has caused problems. So now these businesses must submit their own posts, although I will in this case allow them to post even if they are not subscribers. -Ed.

Proposed Rules For Children: (Updated 23 APR 2020 – 14:03 CEST) At today’s press conference, Iglesias and Illa went into more details about the ministerial order, set to be approved on Saturday, that will allow parents to take their out for the first time in six weeks. Details could change before the vote.
Under the new rules, an adult will be able to go out onto the street with as many as three children. What’s more, the children will be allowed to run and not just walk.
Iglesias explained that “[children] will be able to run, jump, play sport, respecting physical distancing conditions […]. They will also be able to go out with toys, a ball or a scooter but they cannot go to play areas in parks.” He said that children living in rural areas will be able to “go for a walk in the woods or the countryside respecting the security measures.” The prime minister added that youngsters experiencing coronavirus symptoms should remain at home.
Iglesias said that parents should avoid taking children on to the street in “peak hours,” adding that minors will be able to be accompanied by a “responsible adult who lives with them, who could also be an older sibling.” The adult in charge will be responsible for ensuring the child follows the security measures.
Youngsters aged 15 and over will be allowed to leave the house alone in order to perform essential activities as adults can, such as the aforementioned visits to supermarkets, etc.
Full story: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-04-22/spanish-government-confirms-details-of-relaxation-of-coronavirus-confinement-measures-for-under-14s.html
More proposed info from another source (Updated 17.15h on Thursday 23 April)- Children under 14 will not be able to be outside alone and will not be allowed to go further than one kilometre away from the home, and nor will they be able to visit parks or playgrounds. They will be able to exercise and run, however, as long as they continue to respect social distancing.
The ministers also explained that the daily walk will only be allowed between 9am to 9pm – and that ‘peak hours’ should be avoided.

Prices Crash for Bars For Sale on the Costa del Sol: Bars and restaurants are going on the market daily, with prices crashing by up to 40k€ with even further reductions expected to hit the market. Whilst at the same time bar owners are simply throwing in the towel with no plans to re-open at all.
We spoke to Gary Adamson the MD of Bars Abroad who said “I’ve been listing reductions all day and will be all week, there’s going to be some real deals to be had for those buyers who have the cash and are prepared to wait until the situation here gets back to normal, buyers need to look at the long term as well as take advantage of the huge reductions right now.

Football Shocker as Fans in Spain Are Barred from La Liga Matches until 2021 due to Covid-19 Pandemic: La Liga clubs in the top two divisions have been told by the government that any resumption will be dependent on playing behind closed doors. That comes as no surprise, but the news that the stadiums will not reopen to supporters ahead of the New Year comes a blow both to fans and clubs needing a boost in their revenue. Source:


Amazon Scams It’s Own Sellers: Whistleblowers claim Amazon Collected Data From Its Own Sellers to Launch Competing Products! Interviews with more than 20 former employees of Amazon’s private-label business, and documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, reveal that employees did just that. Contrary to assertions to Congress, employees often consulted sales information on third-party vendors when developing private-label merchandise.
Such information can help Amazon decide how to price an item, which features to copy or whether to enter a product segment based on its earning potential, according to people familiar with the practice, including a current employee and some former employees who participated in it.
In one instance, Amazon employees accessed documents and data about a bestselling car-trunk organizer sold by a third-party vendor. The information included total sales, how much the vendor paid Amazon for marketing and shipping, and how much Amazon made on each sale. Amazon’s private-label arm later introduced its own car-trunk organizers. See pic.
If you’re a business selling your products through Amazon, the e-commerce giant may use data on your products and sales to develop its own, competing products, according to a new report in the Wall Street Journal.

It’s About Time!!!- Google to Require All Advertisers to Verify Identity: You mean all this time Google was selling ad space without verifying the buyer’s identity, and letting them load the space with whatever ad content they wanted? Yup! Other than hardcore porn and graphic violence for which there are automatic detection filters, it was pretty much anything goes. That’s how all the ads containing malware and fraud have been allowed to operate with impunity. The ad space is purchased using an alias, protecting the true identity of the criminals.
In a blog post published Thursday, Google’s director of product management, ads integrity John Canfield said the policy the company enacted almost two years ago for political advertising will be expanded to all ads.
“As part of this initiative, advertisers will be required to complete a verification program in order to buy ads on our network,” Canfield wrote. “Advertisers will need to submit personal identification, business incorporation documents or other information that proves who they are and the country in which they operate.
“Beginning this summer, users will start to see disclosures that list this information about the advertiser behind the ads they see.”
Canfield wrote that the new policy will be implemented across the company’s network, a lineup that includes the Google search engine and YouTube.

By supporting our sponsors you help support DigameXtra!

These banners do NOT indicate the business is open during the Alarm Period. They are simply promos like a roadside billboard. I see no reason to remove them. By now everyone should know non-essential travel is banned. Call Sponsors for their current status as most, but not all, must be closed. -Ed.

All current Sponsors have received 30 day extensions to their Sponsorship expiration dates to compensate for the lockdown time we are experiencing. -Ed.
