Axarquia Eat and Travel- Upcoming Walking Tours:
History / Gastronomy / Theatrical Show
-Friday 23APR, Religious Buildings
-Friday 30APR, Al Andalus
Axarquia Eat & Travel is a gastronomic association, a nonprofit organization, which loves our region-Axarquia.
We are an association that wants to show the historical, artistic and gastronomic legacy of Vélez-Málaga and Axarquia region. We organize events where we combine walking tours, theatrical elements and gastronomy. Our main goal is to build a bridge to the non-Spanish speaking communities living in the Axarquia so that they can learn more about our culture. For this reason, we offer tours in English and other languages.

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! Most of those FB posts by venues only have a few likes, if any at all, so obviously are not reaching many people. 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.

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/
