Andalucía to announce new Covid-19 measures on Wednesday based on pandemic figures: The regional authority will keep an eye on figures over the next two days and will make new decisions on Wednesday, said Juanma Moreno after taking part in a meeting that prime minister Pedro Sánchez held with all regional presidents. The government in Andalucía would be “agile but not impulsive” said Moreno, adding that any decisions would be made based on the advice from the Junta’s technical-scientific committee.

Spain’s COVID-19 state of emergency faces backlash: Opposition parties said that was too long, epidemiologists said the move may be too little too late, and some citizens balked at nightly curfews.
“The curfew doesn’t make much sense. Does the virus only infect people between 2300 and 0600? No,” said Marta Aragoneses, a 36-year old schoolteacher, enjoying a cigarette outside a cafe in Madrid’s historic La Latina neighbourhood.
Nearby, Mariano Moreno de Guerra, a pharmacist on his way to work, said what worried him was the length of the state of emergency and the powers it gave authorities.
“They are acquiring a taste for confining people and that could be dangerous. Extending it by six months is an absolute outrage. I see a lot of potential for abuse.” Full article: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-spain/spains-covid-19-state-of-emergency-faces-backlash-idUSKBN27B1Q2?il=0


Curfew Causes Clash Between the Government and the Main Opposition Party: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es} The Executive of Pedro Sánchez rejects the condition of limiting the state of alarm to a duration of eight weeks, as had demanded PP leader Pablo Casado, and will officially request a six-month extension tomorrow, which will be voted on this week in the Congress of Deputies. Casado has asked for a time limit of eight weeks and that a “Plan B”, a legal alternative to constitutional exceptionality, be launched. Excerpt, translated from: https://sevilla.abc.es/espana/abci-casado-rechaza-estado-alarma-seis-meses-y-solo-apoyara-si-limita-ocho-semanas-202010261253_noticia.html


The Axarquía’s own Caminito del Rey is ready to welcome walkers: The highlight of the renewed El Saltillo walkway, which opened on Monday, is the new suspension bridge, among the three longest in Spain. The path, which runs along a gorge between the municipalities of Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella, is the latest part of the Gran Senda (Great Trail) circle of walking routes around the province.

Experts Warn of Privacy Risks Caused by Link Previews in Messaging Apps: Cybersecurity researchers over the weekend disclosed new security risks associated with link previews in popular messaging apps that cause the services to leak IP addresses, expose links sent via end-to-end encrypted chats, and even unnecessarily download gigabytes of data stealthily in the background. (On mobile devices with limited data storage this last point could be a significant problem. -Ed.)
“Links shared in chats may contain private information intended only for the recipients,” researchers Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk said.
“This could be bills, contracts, medical records, or anything that may be confidential.”
“Apps that rely on servers to generate link previews may be violating the privacy of their users by sending links shared in a private chat to their servers.” Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2020/10/mobile-messaging-apps.html

Nasa finds hidden pockets of water on the Moon in breakthrough for space exploration: The discover of pockets of water in Clavius crater raises hopes for exploration – and even habitation – of the Moon, as astronauts may not need to carry water with them.
The announcement was based on data from the airborne observatory Sofia, a modified 747 carrying a large telescope. Full article: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/moon-nasa-announcement-160551391.html?
