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.


The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

US Election 2020- Too Close To Call: https://nypost.com/2020/11/03/2020-presidential-election-results-map-live-updates-from-across-us/


The Board proposes to advance the curfew in Andalucia in the afternoon to stop the coronavirus: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es} Updated: 11/4/2020 17: 38h
The president of the Board, Juanma Moreno , has indicated that the measure he opts for limiting mobility in order to stop the advance of the coronavirus is the closure of economic activity in the afternoon . This has been pointed out by the Andalusian president, who has explained that the bulk of economic activity occurs from seven in the morning until three in the afternoon.
With that schedule in mind, Moreno has indicated that the measure of restricting the activity would be from the night backwards. It ie advancing the mandatory closure of shops , which is now set at 22.30 pm . However, the Andalusian president has not specified which would be the new bands where economic activity would be prohibited.
“The only measure we can do is to go from bottom to top,” explained Moreno, advancing that schedule and “restricting activity from below, that is, from the night, so as not to hurt morning productivity.” They are measures, Moreno has indicated, “that do harm” to the economy but the prediction of deaths from coronavirus that the president has on the table predicts a tightening of the limitations.
On the other hand, and to analyze this week’s data, the Chairman of the Board has indicated that this Sunday he will meet with the committee of experts . In this meeting, they will study whether are applied in Andalusia, “stricter” measures including the home confinement of citizens. However, Moreno has insisted, this is the “last option” that you want to apply in the community.
The president has acknowledged that the situation is “frankly worrying” , noting that Granada’s figures have soared behind the bridge. In this sense, he pointed out that if the data is maintained “we have no choice but to limit mobility and timetables from bottom to top”, that is, if necessary, extend the curfew towards the afternoon , “not to damage more to morning productivity, which is the one with the highest peak of activity.
“These are measures that harm the productive fabric, but we have no alternative but to limit mobility if we do not want to go to home confinement ,” said Moren, who explained that the Board works “to find the balance between health and tourism sector, the most damaged by the pandemic.

Pants down and facemasks on Trump and Biden go head to head in Spain’s bizarre Christmas tradition: The pair are competing to appear on top of the best seller list of this year’s caganer figurines, a bizarre Christmas tradition in the Spanish region of Catalonia. Known as “caganers” – which translates as “poopers” or “crappers” in English – the clay figurines area popular nativity scene decoration in Catalonia, where a defecating figure perched behind Mary and Joseph is said to symbolize fertilization, as well as bringing luck and prosperity for the year ahead. Visit any Catalan home at Christmas and you will find what appears to be an interloper hiding among the traditional figures around the crib in the nativity scene.

Bitcoin Pumped Above $14K As Trump Becomes Betting Favorite to Win Elections: Bitcoin broke above the coveted $14,000 mark on Saturday for the first time since January 2018. Since then, though, the asset has primarily struggled with maintaining its high price tag.
In fact, BTC even dipped below $13,300 on two occasions in the following days. It started recovering yesterday when it jumped above $13,500 and stayed above it for most of the past 24 hours.
Just a few hours ago, the primary cryptocurrency headed higher once more. With a few decisive candles, Bitcoin surged to $14,050 (on Bitstamp) before retracing to its current level – $13,800.
