MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing.
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our health. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help
-slow down ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate blemishes.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration, cell revitalization and antioxidant effect, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients with gorgeous fragrances.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all local customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering a small discount on future purchases to customers recycling containers.
Free small testers are available on request. Please call us to find out more or to order: Tel 650 044 102. You can also find us on Instagram @moonetteskincare or Google (search Moonette).

Andalusia cuts Covid infections one more day and the incidence already drops to 225 points: {Translation}
Updated: 04/29/2021 18:35
-Andalusia continues to reduce the number of cases of covid infection day by day. On Thursday, 1,698 people were infected, almost 200 fewer than on the same day last week, confirming the downward trend of the fourth wave. However, the decline in this peak of the pandemic is slow. There are no sharp drops in the number of positives, but rather a smooth curve in the number of reported cases.
-This can also be seen in the 14-day cumulative incidence, which on Thursday stands at 225.7 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. It reached 263 points on 19 April and now, ten days later, it has dropped by 38 points. It is a steady and continuous drop, but a slight one.
-The same trend can be seen in this seven-day measure of the strength of the health crisis. In this case, Andalusia now has 95.9 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, down from 115.5 on 19 April.
-Where there has been a clearer decrease is in the number of deaths. There are 9 this Thursday, bringing the total since the beginning of the Covid pandemic to 9,720. However, this drop – there were 29 yesterday and 22 the day before – does not necessarily represent a change in trend, since a week ago there were also days with fewer than ten deaths a day.
-The number of hospitalised patients, which this Thursday reached 1,450 (17 less than yesterday), continues to fall. In fact, Andalusia has already reduced 143 hospital admissions since the peak of the fourth wave, which occurred on 20 April with 1,593 patients in Andalusian hospitals due to covid.
-Where the ceiling has not yet been reached is in those admitted to the ICU. In fact, on Thursday the community registered 351 patients in intensive care, five more than yesterday. Although there is a rise and a new peak is marked, it is true that the figures reveal a slowdown in the increase of those hospitalised in ICU, so that this week or next week the peak of this variable may already be exceeded and a clear decrease can be seen.

National Police warn of a new technique used by burglars to know if anyone is at home: In this new method, the criminals place strings of glue between door and the frame. With this simple system, the thieves know if there is movement in the house in question and if its occupants enter and leave normally or, if on the contrary, they have not opened the door for days.

NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter just failed to lift off: NASA’s Ingenuity Mars helicopter was scheduled to embark on its most daring flight yet on Thursday. But it failed to lift off, so NASA plans to try again on Friday.
Ingenuity made history when it flew for the first time on April 19 — a 10-foot hover that marked the first controlled, powered flight ever conducted on another planet. Since then, the 4-pound drone has completed two more flights, venturing farther and flying faster each time.

The fourth wave of Covid in Andalusia- with 412 fewer infections than a week ago: {Translated in full} Updated: 28/04/2021 13:28
-Andalusia recorded Wednesday 1 .484 new infections of coronavirus and 29 deaths attributable to Covid -19 data confirm the trend of gradual decline in the fourth wave of the pandemic. These are 412 cases less than those recorded on Wednesday of last week. The ratio of deceased is higher than last week when 20 deaths were added to the Andalusian Covid statistic.
-During the pandemic , 545,554 Andalusians been infected with coronavirus and 9,711 have have died from the pandemic.

Granada marks the highest incidence with 406 cases although with a clear downward trend and Malaga is the only province with a rate at medium alert levels (134 cases). The rate drops this Wednesday by almost 19 points in Almería (233), and it also does so significantly, around ten points, in Cádiz (161), Córdoba (193) and Jaén (316).

Attention! FluBot Android Banking Malware Spreads Quickly Across Europe: FluBot, a banking trojan, began its operations late last year, infecting more than 60,000 users in Spain, according to Proactive Defence Against Future Threats (PRODAFT) in March 2021. It’s said to have amassed more than 11 million phone numbers from the devices, representing 25% of the total population in Spain.
Primarily distributed via SMS phishing (aka smishing), the messages masquerade as a delivery service such as FedEx, DHL, and Correos, seemingly notifying users of their package or shipment delivery status along with a link to track the order, which, when clicked, downloads malicious apps that have the encrypted FluBot module embedded within them.
Although Spanish authorities arrested four criminals suspected to be behind the FluBot campaign last month, infections have since picked up, while simultaneously expanding the countries targeted to include Japan, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and the Netherlands in a short period of time.
“FluBot is likely to continue to spread at a fairly rapid rate, moving methodically from country to country via a conscious effort by the threat actors,” Proofpoint researchers said. “As long as there are users willing to trust an unexpected SMS message and follow the threat actors’ provided instructions and prompts, campaigns such as these will be successful.” Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/04/attention-flubot-android-banking.html

Halting Erosion using Vetiver
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.

Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.

Is Your Business Fakebook Page Losing You Customers?: While a properly maintained FB page can certainly boost your client base, a poorly maintained FB page can just as certainly drive away potential clients. If you fail to post at least weekly, viewers may consider that evidence your business is not successful, as it appears it has few customers that need to be kept updated on your activities. If you fail to post at least every 2 weeks viewers may think you have closed your business! I see many local businesses who have not posted on FB in months. I see some FB pages where there are no replies to comments posted. This makes it look like you don’t monitor the FB page, and don’t care about the concerns of clients or potential customers.
If you use FB for your business, you really should post something everyday, and keep your page free of clutter, poorly written posts and poor quality images, as these reflect directly onto your reputation.
If you are going to use FB for biz you need to make it part of your weekly routine, otherwise it may cost you more than you gain from it!

The Government extends the mandatory warranty periods and the possibility of repairing products to increase their useful life: The Council of Ministers has approved this Tuesday to extend the legal guarantee period for products by one year to three and increase the minimum time in which manufacturers must have spare parts once for up to 10 years (now there are five) a product is no longer manufactured, thus guaranteeing the consumer’s right to repair.

No evidence of Covid-19 transmissions at 5,000-strong concert one month on: Exactly a month ago, 5,000 people attended a Love of Lesbian gig at Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi—the first large concert in over a year.
-Although spectators were not required to remain seated or socially distanced, they did have to provide proof of a negative antigen test and wear FFP2 masks as part of an experiment conducted by Festivals per la Cultura Segura and Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol.
-A month later, and after tracking the number of Covid-19 cases amongst the 4,592 concert-goers who gave their consent to share this information, the pilot test organizers have determined that the gig was not a superspreader event in results that could have implications for future Covid-time festivals in Barcelona and beyond.
-All in all, only 6 people tested positive within two weeks following the concert—the equivalent of an incidence rate of 131 cases per 100,000 inhabitants when at the same time, Barcelona’s overall rate was 259.5.
Of these 6 cases, medical professionals have been able to establish that 4 were not infected at the March 27 event, while the origin of the other 2 remains unknown. Because of the strict health and safety measures in place during the concert, however, they believe they are unlikely to have gotten the virus there.

Fake Gas Inspectors Working the Costa del Sol: Fuengirola Council, councillor for Consumer Affairs, Francisco Jose Martin, has said there had been an increase in the number of scams relating to gas inspectors being carried out against the elderly.
He added, “Different municipalities of the province are warning of an exponential increase in these cases of fraud where, for the most part, the elderly are victims. “It is important to remember that all the inspections of the installation of gas… in the home, are only done if the owner of the house requests them.”

UK Pensioners In Spain Struggle With A ‘Failing System’ Amid Soaring Health Costs: Sue Wilson, chair of the campaign organisation Bremain in Spain has warned that UK pensioners have been hit with hefty medical fees as they await sign-off on their paperwork, known as an S1 form, which would grant them access to the Spanish national health system.
Ms. Wilson said: “Some people are paying for medical care that perhaps they wouldn’t need to had they got their residencia sorted out sooner. It is not just the cost of the healthcare it’s the drugs as well so you know if you take a lot of medicines then that can get pricey.” Full article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/04/26/uk-pensioners-in-spain-struggle-with-a-failing-system-amid-soaring-health-costs/

The contagion curve of the fourth wave continues to decline in Andalusia: {Translation}
-The contagion curve of the fourth wave of coronavirus falls slowly in Andalusia, which this Monday counts 1,785 new cases and 7 deaths with data from the last 48 hours. This is 249 cases less than the record last Monday .
-The evolution of infections in recent days sets the trend: on Saturday 1,839 cases were counted in just 24 hours, 2,070 were on Friday for 1,884 on Thursday, 1,899 on Wednesday. Only last Tuesday marked a lower number of infections last week.
-Seville is the province that has added the highest number of infections in the last two days, with 492; Granada registered 331, Cádiz 228, Málaga 199, Jaén 181, Huelva 138, Almería 124 and Córdoba 92 positive for coronavirus.
-This slight decrease in infections influences the incidence rate. At 14 days, it stands at 240 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, while at 7 days it is 104, less than half. This data confirms the downward trend of the impact of the fourth wave. However, there are provinces above the extreme alert level. This is the case of Granada, which continues to have the highest incidence in the community with 430 cases per one hundred thousand inhabitants; Jaén, with 337 cases and Seville, whose 14-day rate has been stalled for days at 270 cases per one hundred thousand inhabitants.
-The lowest rate is Malaga that has 138 cases and therefore in medium level alert, followed by Cadiz, with 176 cases, Cordoba, 188; Almería, which registers 239 cases, and Huelva, with 246.
-The also decreases for the sixth consecutive day number of hospitalized Covid patients, which this Monday is 1,426 -Those admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) have fallen by four in relation to Sunday’s data to stand at 318.
-Those hospitalized are 106 less than a week ago ; and the patients in ICU, ten less. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-coronavirus-andalucia-curva-contagios-cuarta-sigue-baja-andalucia-202104261148_noticia.html

Gov’t Agencies Hack Computers To Fix Malware WITHOUT Notifying Users!: Emotet, the notorious email-based Windows malware behind several botnet-driven spam campaigns and ransomware attacks, was automatically wiped from infected computers en masse following a European law enforcement operation.
While the motivation, to remove very bad malware, is noble, noone has any business breaking into your computer without permission.
Twice in the past 30 days, once in the US and once in the EU, authorities have done just that. This sets the stage for gov’ts to access your data whenever they deem necessary, with very little oversight. In order to find the malware they must scan the entire contents of your computer. Do you want the gov’t to see everything on your computer? That includes every file, every website visited, every search you have done. Do you have private info or company secrets to protect? Without any legislation or public debate they just went ahead and did as they pleased. TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE! While malware is bad, it is no excuse for these drastic measures. I suspect we will see some big ticket class action lawsuits as a result, which the taxpayers will end up footing the bill for. The only clear way to stop this is to encrypt your entire hard drive, while not difficult to do, it will slow your computer significantly, as well as also using a paid, well respected VPN for ALL your online activities.

1.5 Billion Apple Devices at Risk- Apple Ignores AirDrop Bug That Could Leak Your Personal Info to Anyone Nearby:
Only turn on AirDrop when in use! When finished, disable it!
“As an attacker, it is possible to learn the phone numbers and email addresses of AirDrop users – even as a complete stranger,” said a team of academics from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. “All they require is a Wi-Fi-capable device and physical proximity to a target that initiates the discovery process by opening the sharing pane on an iOS or macOS device.”
-The researchers said they privately notified Apple of the issue as early as May 2019, and once again in October 2020 after developing a solution named “PrivateDrop” to correct the flawed design in AirDrop.
-But given that Apple is yet to indicate its plans to fix the privacy leakage, users of more than 1.5 billion Apple devices are vulnerable to such attacks. “Users can only protect themselves by disabling AirDrop discovery in the system settings and by refraining from opening the sharing menu,” the researchers said.

Coronavirus vaccination campaign among the elderly in Spain is starting to pay off: A medical expert said that proof that vaccines work is that now the majority of the elderly admitted for coronavirus had decided not to be vaccinated.
José Luis Velasco, deputy medical director of the Clínico explained, “Over 80 years old, we only have six patients and they were not vaccinated.” Of the 15 patients in hospital with Covid-19 over the age of 70, 14 had not received the vaccine: “When you discuss it with them, they tell you that they had fears and that is why they had not been vaccinated”.

E.U. Set to Let Vaccinated U.S. Tourists Visit This Summer: American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to visit the European Union over the summer, the head of the bloc’s executive body said in an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, more than a year after shutting down nonessential travel from most countries to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
“The Americans, as far as I can see, use European Medicines Agency-approved vaccines,” Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, said Sunday in an interview with The Times in Brussels. “This will enable free movement and the travel to the European Union. Because one thing is clear: All 27 member states will accept, unconditionally, all those who are vaccinated with vaccines that are approved by E.M.A.,” she added.

European Commission launches legal action against AstraZeneca over ‘failure to respect Covid-19 vaccine contract’: Announcing the move on Monday, spokesman Stefan De Keersmaecker said “the Commission has started last Friday legal action against the company AstraZeneca on the basis of breaches of the advance purchase agreement.” He said the reason for the legal action was that “some terms of the contract have not been respected” and that “the company has not been in a position to come up with a reliable strategy to ensure a timely delivery of doses.”
AstraZeneca’s contract with the European Union foresaw an initial 300 million doses for distribution among the 27 member countries, with an option for a further 100 million.
Only 30 million doses were delivered in the first quarter of 2021, and the company says it can only provide 70 million in the second quarter, rather than the 180 million it had promised.
AstraZeneca said in a statement that it “regrets” the commission’s decision to take legal action and it will “strongly defend” itself in court.

Warning Over New UK Travel Announcement: MPs and travel operators in the UK are reportedly warning the government will spark confusion if their travel green list conflicts with Foreign Office travel advice.
According to the Express newspaper, fears have been raised that holidaymakers could still face trouble if they want to visit a green list country once the UK government announces its list of countries for travel if the Foreign Office separately advises against travel to the destination.

Bill Gates says no to sharing vaccine formulas with global poor to end pandemic: Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men and most powerful philanthropists, was the target of criticism from social justice campaigners on Sunday after arguing that lifting patent protections on COVID-19 vaccine technology and sharing recipes with the world to foster a massive ramp up in manufacturing and distribution – despite a growing international call to do exactly that – is a bad idea.

Surprise in the deep sea- Researchers discover sponge paths on the ocean floor: A team around deep-sea scientist Antje Boetius has now discovered that sponges, long thought to remain stationary anchored to an ocean floor object, or swept along by currents, actually leave trails on the sea floor in the Arctic deep sea. They conclude that the animals might move actively – even if only a few centimetres per year. Full article: https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2021-04/awih-sit042621.php

Andalusia reduces by 45 those hospitalized this Sunday, but increases the patients in ICU: {Translation} Updated: 04/25/2021 3:05 p.m
-Andalusia falls for the fifth day in a row hospitalised by coronavirus this Sunday 25 April to 1,427, 45 less than the day before and 30 less than last Sunday, while those admitted to an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) have increased after two days in decline to 322, eight more in one day and 20 more than a week ago.
-The number of hospitalised patients fell by 45 after dropping by 29 on Saturday and Friday, 58 on Thursday and five on Wednesday, rising by 61 on Tuesday and 75 on Monday, and falling by 41 last Sunday.
-For their part, ICU patients have increased by eight after dropping by four on Saturday and three on Friday, and five consecutive increases: two on Thursday, one on Wednesday, five on Tuesday, six on Monday and eleven on Sunday.
-The region is still far from the peaks of hospitalised patients recorded in the third wave on 2 February (4,980), in the second on 10 November (3,478) and in the first on 30 March 2020 (2,708).

Israel examining heart inflammation cases in people who received Pfizer COVID shot: Israel’s Health Ministry said on Sunday it is examining a small number of cases of heart inflammation in people who had received Pfizer’s (PFE.N) COVID-19 vaccine, though it has not yet drawn any conclusions. Israel’s pandemic response coordinator, Nachman Ash, said that a preliminary study showed “tens of incidents” of myocarditis occurring among more than 5 million vaccinated people, primarily after the second dose.
Most of the cases were reported among people up to age 30. Full article: https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/israel-examining-heart-inflammation-cases-people-who-received-pfizer-covid-shot-2021-04-25/

The U.S. State Department has added at least 116 countries this week to its “Level Four: Do Not Travel” advisory list, putting the UK, Canada, France, Israel, Mexico, Germany and others on the list, citing a “very high level of COVID-19.”
Before Tuesday, the State Department listed 34 out of about 200 countries as “Do Not Travel.” The State Department now lists 150 countries at Level Four.

Stop Apple from deleting your old or banned apps: Instead of paying app developers to update their apps, Apple, in many cases, just buys replacement apps and removes old apps from their store, and your iPhone/iPad, without even notifying you. This has earned Apple a terrible reputation with app developers, many of whom will never work with Apple again for this reason. Thus the poor selection of reliable apps from well known developers in the Apple Store when compared to the huge variety available for Windows, who does pay developers to update their apps. Here is a way to prevent your old apps from being deleted by Apple. -Naythan

MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) researchers say you’re no safer from Covid indoors at 6 feet or 60 feet in new study challenging “social distancing policies”:
MIT professors Martin Z. Bazant, who teaches chemical engineering and applied mathematics, and John W.M. Bush, who teaches applied mathematics, developed a method of calculating exposure risk to Covid-19 in an indoor setting that factors in a variety of issues that could affect transmission, including the amount of time spent inside, air filtration and circulation, immunization, variant strains, mask use, and even respiratory activity such as breathing, eating, speaking or singing.
“We argue there really isn’t much of a benefit to the 6-foot rule, especially when people are wearing masks,” Bazant said in an interview. “It really has no physical basis because the air a person is breathing while wearing a mask tends to rise and comes down elsewhere in the room so you’re more exposed to the average background than you are to a person at a distance.”
The important variable the CDC and the WHO have overlooked is the amount of time spent indoors, Bazant said. The longer someone is inside with an infected person, the greater the chance of transmission, he said.
“We need scientific information conveyed to the public in a way that is not just fearmongering but is actually based in analysis,” Bazant said. After three rounds of heavy peer review, he said it’s the most review he’s ever been through, and that now that it’s published he hopes it will influence policy.

How a single pill home cure for Covid could be available this year: If the trial is successful, it is just possible that a home cure for Covid-19 will become available later this year. The anti-viral pill was developed from scratch during the current pandemic, Dafydd Owen, the director of medicinal chemistry at Pfizer, told a private symposium of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry last month. PF-07321332 will be administered in combination with low doses of Ritonavir, an antiviral used to treat HIV. It acts as a “booster” to increase the amount of PF-07321332 in participants’ blood.

Why Password Manager Apps Should Be Avoided: As I have warned in previous articles, cloud services (including password managers) get hacked regularly. So why would you trust them to store all your passwords? For example: Click Studios, the Australian software company behind the Passwordstate password management application, has notified customers to reset their passwords following a supply chain attack…”Affected customers password records may have been harvested.” The full list of compromised information includes computer name, user name, domain name, current process name, current process id, names and IDs of all running processes, names of all running services, display name and status, Passwordstate instance’s Proxy Server Address, usernames and passwords.
This is not an isolated event. In December 2020, a rogue update to the SolarWinds Orion network management software installed a backdoor on the networks of up to 18,000 corporations, allowing hackers access to these victim corporation’s customer’s data.

Apple News- iOS 14.5 arrives this week, 2 reasons you should wait to update your iPhone or iPad: Being an early adopter of iOS 14.5 or any new software doesn’t always pay off.
The updates will go live this week, and while we don’t have an exact date we do know that it will include several additional features, such as new Siri voices and a fancy new Face ID feature that makes it possible to use your iPhone while wearing a face mask.
While it’s tempting to update your iPhone or iPad to the latest and greatest software Apple has to offer, being an early adopter of anything, even official OS updates, can cause more issues and headaches than it’s worth. Instead of jumping on the iOS 14.5 bandwagon right away, you might find it better to wait a few days before updating (I’d wait 2 full weeks, minimum. -DoctorLaptop).

Spanish Politics- Chaos reigns at Madrid electoral debate, as Pablo Iglesias walks out and program cut short after clashes with far-right Vox candidate: A pre-election debate held at the Cadena SER radio network descended into chaos on Friday morning, with the Unidas Podemos candidate for the upcoming Madrid regional polls, Pablo Iglesias, walking out of the studio almost as soon as the program had begun. The left-wing politician, who recently left his role as deputy prime minister in the national government to contest the May 4 elections, opted to leave given the refusal of far-right Vox candidate Rocío Monasterio to retract doubts she had expressed over whether death threats he had received were genuine. She said, “And well, I believe little of what Pablo Iglesias says, and I think that all Spaniards, every time that we hear Pablo Iglesias say something, we call it into question because he has deceived us vilely over this last year.” Full article: https://english.elpais.com/politics/2021-04-23/chaos-reigns-at-madrid-electoral-debate-as-pablo-iglesias-walks-out-and-program-cut-short-after-clashes-with-far-right-vox-candidate.html

Andalusia lowers the extreme risk due to Covid although it adds more than 2,000 new infections in one day: {Translated in full} Updated: 23/04/2021 14:13
-Andalusia recorded this Friday 2,070 new cases of coronavirus and 33 deaths due to Covid-19 on the day that the community reduced its incidence rate to 14 days below the limit of 250 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants that marks the level of extreme risk in the pandemic.
-Despite exceeding two thousand positives in one day, a record higher than in previous days, this is 407 fewer cases than those counted a week ago, something that affects the controlled trend of the infection curve of the fourth wave in Andalusia.
-The one-week incidence rate of 106 cases supports this theory of a favourable evolution. It is less than half the 14-day rate (249). In this dynamic, the incidence rate has fallen in all provinces, except in Seville, which copies the 273 cases of Thursday, and Malaga, the province with the lowest incidence (140 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants), which is the only one in which this indicator has risen this Friday. Cadiz experienced a significant drop in incidence with 177 cases and to a lesser extent Almeria (258), Cordoba (219), Huelva (261), Jaen (347) and Granada, the province with the greatest impact of the disease and a 14-day incidence rate of 438 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-Another evidence of the positive trend marked by the fourth wave is the decrease in care pressure. On Friday, 1,501 Covid patients were admitted to Andalusian hospitals, 29 fewer than on Thursday. Of the total, 318 are being treated in intensive care units, three less than the day before.
-Granada and Seville are under the most pressure, with 346 and 383 Covid patients respectively. The ICUs of Granada’s hospitals are the ones treating the most patients, with 85 patients on Friday.

Andalusia extends the current measures against Covid for one more week: curfew, mobility and schedules: {Translation, 1st paragraph only}
The BOJA confirms Andalusia has extended until April 29 the validity of the current measures decreed by the Covid-19 pandemic, which affect both the perimeter closure of the autonomous community and that of each of its eight provinces, as well as the schedule of the known as a night ‘curfew’ in the section between 11pm and 6am.

The Junta de Andalucía could decide to allow mobility between provinces next week: Speaking at the opening of a health centre in Almeria, the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, announced that the region could make a decision to open mobility between provinces next week.
The head of the regional government said that, as usual, the final decision would be made by the committee of experts that advises the Junta on making decisions about the pandemic and that it will meet next Tuesday, 27 April.

Aid From Junta de Andalucia for Hotels and Tourist Apartments: {Translated in full} The Councilor for Commerce, Javier López, has appeared to report on the new aid from the Junta de Andalucía for hotel establishments, tourist apartments and rural complexes, “with the aim of alleviating the economic consequences of COVID-19 in the sector and contributing to the continuity of the companies. These grants are also compatible with other calls from other administrations that have the same purpose, and your application will be available in the coming days ”.
-“Andalusia has been the only autonomous community that has promoted this type of aid to support these strategic tourist sectors that create employment and wealth,” says the councilor, and details, “so the aid to hotels will be 200 euros for each one of the places available in the hotel establishments that appear in the Andalusian Tourism Registry on March 13, 2020. In the case of tourist apartments, it will be 80 euros for each of the places in these establishments. Finally, in aid to rural tourist complexes, there will be a fixed fee of 3,000 euros ”.
-People and companies that carry out their activity prior to the date of entry into force of Royal Decree 463/2020, of March 14, by which the state of alarm is declared, may be beneficiaries of the aid; that have their fiscal domicile in Andalusia; that are registered in the Economic Activities Tax, in the case of self-employed SMEs, registration in the Special Social Security Scheme for Self-Employed or Self-Employed Workers; that are registered in the Andalusian Tourism Registry, and that prove the drop in sales or income caused by the negative economic impact caused by the health crisis of at least 20%, in the 2020 financial year.

Time is not on your side for the taponazos [very loud gunfire or explosion],” reads an anonymous letter postmarked April 19 and addressed to Grande-Marlaska. Inside the envelope were two 7.62x51mm bullets, according to the police report filed by the minister. An investigation is underway to identify the sender.

Bands & Acts: Please submit your gig promos. Your music is your business, you need to get as much exposure as possible, don’t rely on venues to promote you!

DigameXtra sends out over 4200 email issues everyday to subscribers, and the website gets another 800 visits per day. That is way better exposure than you are getting in any FB posts!!! Entertainers get to post their shows for free as long as they are subscribed to this newsletter. What are you waiting for? Photo:dgim-studio / Freepik

Covid in Spain- Health reports 10,814 new infections and 132 deaths: {Translation} Updated 22APR21 19:48
The Ministry of Health has reported 10,814 new infections on Thursday and has added 132 deaths to the official count. The cumulative incidence has risen three points to 232 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. In total, 3,456,886 people have been infected and 77,496 have died since the beginning of the pandemic, according to official data provided by the Health Ministry. Some 21.4% of the population has already received at least a first dose of vaccine, 10,141,949 people to be precise. And 7.9% have already received the full course (3,768,015 citizens). In the last 24 hours, 412,155 vaccinations against covid have been administered. Source, Spanish: https://elpais.com/sociedad/2021-04-22/ultimas-noticias-del-coronavirus-y-las-vacunas-en-directo-casos-y-restricciones-de-la-covid-en-espana-y-en-el-mundo.html

 

Andalusia reduces 58 hospitalized for coronavirus in a single day and lowers its incidence again: {Translation} Updated: 04/22/2021 19:22
-Andalusia is now undoubtedly in the fourth wave of the coronavirus pandemic. And it is doing so with force in some of the parameters used to measure the course of the epidemiological curve. This is the case of hospitalisations, which are 58 fewer on Thursday than yesterday. Thus, on Thursday there are 1,530 people admitted to the community’s hospitals due to Covid-19.
-However, this sharp decline is not yet reflected in the ICU, where it usually takes longer to see changes in the trend. There, 321 patients were reported on Thursday, seven more than yesterday.
-Coronavirus infections, which on Thursday number 1,884, also point in the right direction. They are almost the same number as on the same day last week, which means that there is no growth. This also comes after several days of decline, something that has been noted in the cumulative incidence of the pandemic (IA).
-Thus, the IA in Andalusia is 251.69 on Thursday, one point less than yesterday. Moreover, this measure of the speed and intensity with which the pandemic is advancing has been falling for almost a week now. It is a trend that can also be observed over 7 days, a parameter where changes in the curve can be seen earlier.
-Thus, the immediate and medium-term future shows a downward curve, which would certify that Andalusia is already in the descent phase of this fourth wave that has had nothing to do with the third, which grew exponentially in a few days.
-In addition, the community has registered 16 deaths this Thursday. This value does show a certain rise, but it is logical. These are the deaths that correspond to the infections reported weeks ago, when the figures were still rising.

Wearing a face mask outdoors and then putting it into your pocket when you enter a bar is like wearing a helmet to go for a walk and taking it off when you get on a motorbike: Despite this, it is common to see this paradox in many countries such as Spain, where it is mandatory to wear a face mask outside, but there are exceptions for indoor spaces such as restaurants and offices. But a growing number of leading experts have begun to question these contradictory measures, including Marc Lipsitch, the head of the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at Harvard University in the United States. “I am generally a hawk about maintaining rules with a clear benefit. Outdoor masking has notable costs and really no evidence of benefits,” he wrote on Monday in a message on Twitter.

New Week, New Massive FB Hack- Fakebook ‘dangerous vulnerability’ exposes millions of email addresses, AGAIN, and They Admit They Don’t Care!: After the company allegedly dismissed the exploit, a security researcher highlighted a Facebook vulnerability exposing millions of user email addresses.
The anonymous researcher created a video demonstrating a tool that can link Facebook accounts to their email addresses. The tool can process up to five million email addresses per day.
In an email about the leak that Facebook accidentally sent to Dutch publication DataNews, Facebook instructed public relations staff to “frame this as a broad industry issue and normalize the fact that this activity happens regularly.” (Normalize weekly “secure” email dumps?!? -Ed.)
Responding to Ars Technica, who viewed the video, a Facebook spokesperson said, “It appears that we erroneously closed out this bug bounty report before routing to the appropriate team. We appreciate the researcher sharing the information and are taking initial actions to mitigate this issue while we follow up to better understand their findings.”
This “mega-leak” comes a month after a dump of phone numbers belonging to 500 million Facebook users. Facebook has 2.8 billion monthly active users, including many using the iOS app on iPhones and iPads.

Phone House Customer Alert! – A cyberattack against Phone House exposes the bank details of millions of Spanish customers: It affects the names, ID numbers, bank accounts, emails, phones, addresses and dates of birth of five million customers, and cybercriminals threaten to publish more if the company does not pay.
Last week, a ransomware- type cyberattack hijacked several databases of the Spanish division of Phone House. The cybercriminals then threatened to publish the data of 13 million clients and company workers if the company did not pay the ransom they demanded to recover them. This Wednesday the Babuk group, which has claimed responsibility for the action, has continued with the extortion and has published on the dark web a part of the data that it claims to have in its possession, about 100 gigs of sensitive information.
If your data is exposed, the experts’ recommendation is to immediately change the passwords of the affected services (and any other in which the same password has been set) and notify your bank of what happened. To check to see if you were included in the data dump visit https://haveibeenpwned.com/
