Correcting flawed submissions: I only make corrections if received by the 6pm deadline the day the incorrect post is published.

Coronavirus restrictions ‘highly likely’ to be extended for another fortnight in Andalucía: The restrictions currently in place in Andalucía to halt the second wave of coronavirus infections will most likely continue for a further two weeks after they expire on 24 November. This will include the long holiday weekend at the start of December. These were the indications given by regional president Juanma Moreno and his deputy Juan Marín on Wednesday afternoon.

Guide to the aid of 1,000 euros from the Junta de Andalucía for the self-employed- how to request them and what is the term: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es}
The Junta de Andalucía will process ” in order of entry and up to the limit of the budget allocation” applications to receive direct aid of 1,000 euros for self-employed or self-employed workers who carry out their activity in the hospitality, commerce, transport sectors by taxi, hairdresser and fairs affected by the restrictions derived from the state of alarm due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic and will have a maximum period of two months “to notify the resolution of the concession procedure.”
This is stated in Decree-Law 29/2020, of November 17, which establishes urgent measures for the maintenance of the activity of certain economic sectors and of tax support to the gaming sector as a consequence of the situation caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus and goes into effect this Thursday.
Said decree-law regulates the line of subsidies endowed with 80 million euros included in the new support plan for SMEs and the self-employed designed by the Junta de Andalucía and which plans to benefit 80,000 self-employed or self-employed workers who carry out their activity in the sectors of hospitality, commerce, taxi transport, hairdressing shops and trade fairs affected by the restrictions derived from the state of alarm due to the pandemic to help sustain its continuity, avoiding its definitive cessation and the consequent destruction of employment.
Only ten days deadline
The standard, consulted by Europa Press, will allow requesting assistance with a responsible declaration that the required requirements are met and will set a deadline for submitting applications of ten calendar days from the day following publication of the publication of the extract of call in the BOJA.
To this end, it establishes that “self-employed or self-employed workers, with tax domicile in Andalusia, who were registered in the Special Regime of Social Security for Self-Employed or Self-Employed Workers , in The date of entry into force of Royal Decree 463/2020, of March 14, which declares the state of alarm for the management of the health crisis situation caused by Covid-19, maintaining that until the day on which the deadline for submitting applications begins ”.
In the case of the hospitality, commerce, transport and hairdressing sectors, the Board establishes that the applicants are not beneficiaries “of any of the extraordinary benefits of cessation of activity regulated in articles 13 and 14 of Royal Decree-Law 30/2020 , of September 29, of social measures in defense of employment, of the provision of cessation of activity compatible with self-employment or of the extension of the benefits already caused under the protection of article 9 of Royal Decree-Law 24/2020 , of June 26, of social measures to reactivate employment and protection of self-employment and competitiveness in the industrial sector, regulated in the fourth additional provision of the aforementioned Royal Decree-Law 30/2020, of September 29 ”.
The decree-law determines that the beneficiaries of the subsidies “will be obliged to maintain their status as self- worker employed or autonomous , continuing to be registered in the Special Regime of Social Security for Self-Employed or Self-Employed Workers without interruption, for at least three months counting from the day following the one on which the period begins application submission . They must also notify the competent body “as soon as it is known” if after submitting the application they are beneficiaries of extraordinary benefits declared incompatible.
The rule establishes that the grant award procedure “will be processed and resolved in a non-competitive competition regime “, the grants will be awarded “in accordance with the principles of publicity, transparency, competition, objectivity, equality and non-discrimination” and its Management will be carried out “with criteria of effectiveness in meeting the objectives set and efficiency in the allocation and use of public resources.”
Telematic presentation
Subsidy applications will be submitted “solely and exclusively online” and will be completed in a form that will be available at the virtual office of the Ministry of Employment, Training and Self-Employed Work, which can be accessed through the catalog of administrative procedures available at the link , and must include an electronic device and / or the email address of the interested party.
In addition, it must accompany a responsible statement by which the applicant states under his responsibility that he “meets the requirements” to obtain the subsidy; that “it is not involved in any of the circumstances that prohibit obtaining” the status of beneficiary; and that “it has not requested or obtained other subsidies, aid, income or resources requested and, where appropriate, granted, for the same purpose, by any Public Administrations or public or private entities, national or international , which, individually or in concurrence with other subsidies or aid exceeds the amount of the subsidy ”. In the case of having requested or obtained other subsidies, aid, income or resources, the declaration must indicate “the grantor, date and amount” .
The rule establishes that the deadline for submitting applications will be “10 calendar days from the day following the publication of the extract of the call in the BOJA ” or “up to the limit of the budget allocation that, by resolution of the holder of the Directorate General competent in matters of self-employment, will be made public on the website of the Ministry responsible for this matter ”. It also establishes that “applications submitted after the deadline will be inadmissible” and a period of ten days is established to be able to “correct” data not completed or documentation not provided.
By order of arrival
Regarding the processing of the aid, the decree-law details that «the instruction and resolution of the applications will be carried out following the correlative order of entry in the single telematic registry of the Administration of the Junta de Andalucía, and up to the limit of the budget allocation, if any, unless these have to be corrected not qualify or not accompanied by the required documentation, which will be considered in the order of priority to be followed for resolution, the date the applications meet the requirements and / or the required documentation , once the absence or insufficiency that may have been appreciated by the Administration has been corrected. ”
It also determines that grant applications “will be processed, resolved and notified individually” and in the procedure “the hearing process will be dispensed with.” Resolutions must be “motivated” and the maximum term to resolve and notify the resolution of the granting procedure “will be two months from the date the application has entered the single telematic registry of the Administration of the Junta de Andalucía” .
This maximum period of two months may be extended “in accordance with the provisions of article 23 of Law 39/2015, of October 1”, a rule that establishes that “exceptionally, when the available personal and material resources have been exhausted, the competent body to resolve may agree in a reasoned way to extend the maximum period of resolution and notification, this may not be greater than that established for the processing of the procedure.

Apple Security Scandal- Apple Lets Some of its Big Sur macOS Apps Bypass Firewall and VPNs: Apple is facing the heat for a new feature in macOS Big Sur that allows many of its own apps to bypass firewalls and VPNs, thereby potentially allowing malware to exploit the same shortcoming to access sensitive data stored on users’ systems and transmit them to remote servers.
Unfortunately, the iPhone maker has released the latest version of macOS to the public on November 12, and the behavior has been left unchanged, prompting concerns from security researchers, who say the change is ripe for abuse.
Of particular note is the possibility that the bypass can leave macOS systems open to attack, not to mention the inability to limit or block network traffic at users’ discretion.
According to Jamf security researcher Patrick Wardle, the company’s 50 Apple-specific apps and processes have been exempted from firewalls like Little Snitch and Lulu. Full story: https://thehackernews.com/2020/11/apple-lets-some-of-its-big-sur-macos.html


Tennis News- World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is stunned by Daniil Medvedev at the ATP Finals: Daniil Medvedev produced a brilliant display to beat world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 6-3 6-3, at the ATP Finals on Wednesday. The 24-year-old made beating the 17-time grand slam champion look comfortable as he progressed into the semifinals of the tournament.
Medvedev has now won three of his last four meetings against Djokovic, who can still qualify for the knockout stages if he beats Alexander Zverev in his next match. Full article: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/11/18/tennis/novak-djokovic-daniil-medvedev-atp-finals-spt-intl/index.html
