What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra! Tell your favourite establishments to post on DigameXtra to get next-day publicity!

Due to the new Curfew, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

This weekend is All Saints Day long weekend, and as All Saints Day is Nov 1st, it falls on a Sunday which will make this a “bridge holiday” where Monday is also a holiday.

! HAPPY HALLOWEEN (on a Full Moon) !

A Rare Halloween ‘Blue Moon‘ is a spooky treat for us all: It’s the first in 76 years, and won’t happen again until 2039!
This is a truly special confluence of spookiness; a Halloween full moon visible for all time zones on Earth hasn’t happened since 1944, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. It won’t happen again until 2039.
But wait, there’s more: The Oct. 31 full moon also happens to be a “blue moon,” a designation for the second full moon to occur in a single calendar month. Blue moons are relatively rare as well, occurring on average just once every 2.5 years or so. We last saw one in March 2018. Full story: https://www.space.com/halloween-blue-moon-full-moon-2020

Curfew at 11pm, is it the ‘final nail in the coffin’ for the hotel and catering industry? : Businesses express frustration at the regional authority’s refusal to put the curfew back to midnight. Junta president Juanma Moreno said on Wednesday that the curfew would stay at 11pm, and ordered establishments to close at 10.30, this despite having the authority to extend the curfew until midnight as he had previously suggested was a possibility.

Covid- Belgium returns to national lockdown: Belgium has announced a return to a national lockdown as the latest coronavirus figures show it has the highest infection rate in Europe.
Non-essential shops and businesses offering personal services like hair salons have been ordered to close from Monday until the middle of December. Any gatherings in public spaces must be limited to a maximum of four people. Supermarkets can only sell essential goods and households are allowed just one visitor.
Autumn school holidays have also been extended until 15 November. The existing night-time curfew measures and closures of bars and restaurants will remain in place. Full story: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-54752194


Covid- All of France’s 67 million people have been ordered to stay at home at all times with no visitors, or risk steep fines: Parisians fleeing for the countryside jammed the roads ahead of France’s lockdown to slow the spread of resurgent coronavirus infections, and there was only a sprinkling of people hurrying along city sidewalks Friday as the nationwide restrictions went into effect.
In France, concerns were growing that rising infections would swamp the country’s health system, so authorities ordered another four-week lockdown beginning Friday. Many areas of the French capital resembled a regular lazy weekend morning — on what would normally have been a bustling weekday. Those who were out frequently clutched permission forms proving they had an exemption that allowed them to to be on streets.
The only places that were busy were grocery stores and markets as people stockpiled food and other necessities.
All of France’s 67 million people have been ordered to stay at home at all times with no visitors, or risk steep fines or prosecution. There are a handful of exceptions, such as being allowed out for one hour of exercise a day within a half-mile (1 kilometer) of home, to go to medical appointments, to a place of work, or to shop for essential goods. Restaurants and cafés are shuttered, apart from those that offer takeout.
“Going to friends’ houses, having friends over and moving around for anything other than the reasons set out will be impossible,” Prime Minister Jean Castex explained firmly on Thursday. Full story: https://apnews.com/article/virus-outbreak-health-paris-france-616144d062db39ec123032bed5c3d930


Illegal YouTube Ripper Tools Claim Innocence Since Users Can Already Download Audio/Video Streams In Most Web Browsers Without Their Tools If They Know The Simple Trick: Downloading audio and video streams from YouTube is generally not allowed, as the video service clearly states in its terms of service. Despite this restriction, there are numerous ‘stream-ripping’ tools available on the web that do just that. These tools have legal uses but they are also a thorn in the side of music industry outfits, who see them as a major piracy threat.
So now that the rippers have been taken to court, they have exposed the easy download method as a defense. Full article: https://torrentfreak.com/deciphering-youtubes-rolling-cypher-in-your-browser-is-a-piece-of-cake-201030/


The rebirth of the Iberian lynx: The latest census shows that there are nearly 900 lynxes on the peninsula now, including adults and kittens – ten times as many as in 2002.
At the moment 583 lynxes are living freely, 476 (81.6%) in Spain and the other 107 in Portugal. In addition, 311 kittens were born in 2019. Most of the lynxes on the Iberian peninsula live in one of the four stable and consolidated communities in Andalucía: Andújar-Cardeña (145), the Guarrizas river area in Jaén (71), Doñana-Aljarafe (69) and Guadalmellato in Cordoba (46), and a further three are loose in different parts of the region. There are also 84 in Castilla-La Mancha (84) and 58 in Extremadura. PHOTO: MRPlotz. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/lifestyle/202010/23/rebirth-iberian-lynx-20201023120133-v.html


China’s Xiaomi surpasses Apple as world’s No. 3 smartphone maker: Asia leads the rankings as US giant Apple falls out of top trio for first time in 10 years. Samsung reclaimed its position as the world’s top smartphone maker in the July-September period, as data from all three providers showed, after the South Korean company was briefly overtaken by Huawei in the preceding quarter. Huawei came in second in the September quarter, with a market share of around 14-15%, though according to IDC its smartphone shipments fell 22%, likely due to bad press in the US & EU.
