Recommendations & Requests

 

Campo crime: I was interested to read Sue’s account on Saturday about potential thieves in the campo.
In Pago Manzano Alto the very old car parked outside our neighbour’s holiday home was broken into. The wires under the dashboard were pulled out but eventually they only got away with the battery. They had also attempted to enter the house and had tried to drill out the front door lock unsuccessfully.
We are usually very vigilant and have been noticing many more strange cars driving around in this area of the campo this year. We never saw or heard anything going on at the neighbour’s house, so are not sure when the crime occurred next door. It was obviously an unattended holiday home as the gardener had not been and maintained the garden, so it did look rather abandoned. We have walked around and checked the house from outside at times but the damage was not apparent until we tried to get their key into the lock to put their fridge on before their planned visit earlier this month.

COVID-19

Those hospitalized for Covid in Andalusia fall below 800 for the first time since last summer: {Translation} Updated: 30/05/2021, 15:01
-Andalusia has this Sunday 784 hospitalised by Covid-19, the lowest figure since last summer. In addition, these less than 800 hospitalised patients reported by the Regional Ministry of Health and Families means that the community is down after having increased yesterday in hospitalised patients, breaking a trend of weeks.
-The drop, which has been sustained for more than a month, means that the community now has half the number of hospitalised patients that it had at the peak of the fourth wave when, at the end of April, Andalusia had more than 1,590 admitted for Covid-19.
-There is also good news in the ICUs. From 220 hospitalised in intensive care yesterday (Saturday), the number has now fallen to 211. The community, which had more than 500 ICU patients in the third wave of the pandemic and more than 300 in the fourth, has managed to reduce the number of occupied intensive care beds by more than a third.
-And all this is happening largely because the vaccination process is progressing at a good pace. In fact, Andalusia is already heading towards five million doses administered, according to the Regional Ministry of Health and Families.
-Although there are no detailed data available this Sunday due to technical problems, the accumulated data of the vaccination process shows that all Andalusians over 80 years of age are already immunised. The same is true for 90 percent of those over 70. And those in the 50 to 60 age group have at least one dose in 60 percent of cases.

The Junta defends the “freedom” of citizens to choose the second dose of AstraZeneca or Pfizer: {Translation}
-The Minister of the Presidency and spokesman for the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo, has defended this Saturday the “freedom” of Andalusians who have been vaccinated with a first dose of AstraZeneca to choose between a second dose of the same vaccine or Pfizer.
-“Freedom, that is what we have done in Andalusia. The two vaccines are perfectly endorsed by the Spanish and European Medicines Agencies and by the World Health Organisation,” said Bendodo, speaking to journalists in Malaga, where he indicated that citizens who have had the first dose of AstraZeneca are “free” to have the second dose of either AstraZeneca or Pfizer.
-He also pointed out that the Andalusian government, at the request of the Ministry of Health, will present citizens who are going to be vaccinated with the second dose with a document of consent for them to sign if they wish, because it is not obligatory. “Anyone who does not want to sign it, will not sign it, and will be vaccinated perfectly well,” he said. For Elías Bendodo, what a government should do is speak clearly and not create “any kind of uncertainty, and the Ministry should give freedom”.
-In his opinion, if you can be vaccinated with either of the two vaccines, obviously, the citizen should be able to choose and he pointed out that we are seeing how the majority of the population is following the pattern of if they have started with AstraZeneca, continue with the same vaccine in the second dose. Bendodo also indicated that yesterday, Friday, a new vaccination record was broken in Andalusia, as for the first time the number of vaccines administered in a single day exceeded 100,000, with a total of 101,597.

In time for summer, Europe sees dramatic fall in virus cases: Europe saw the largest decline in new COVID-19 infections and deaths this week compared with any other region, while also reporting about 44% of adults had received at least one dose of vaccine, according to the World Health Organization and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

Vietnam identifies a highly contagious new coronavirus variant with strains from the UK and India: The Vietnamese Health Ministry announced on Saturday that scientists have determined the new variant has traces of strains from both the United Kingdom and India, VnExpress reported.
Because the virus has mutations of strains from both countries, it is particularly susceptible to transmission. Full article: https://www.businessinsider.com/vietnam-identifies-highly-contagious-new-coronavirus-variant-2021-5

 

COVID-19 ‘has NO credible natural ancestor’ and WAS created by Chinese scientists explosive new study claims: The shocking allegations in the study include accusations of ‘deliberate destruction, concealment or contamination of data’ at Chinese labs, and it notes the silencing and disappearance of scientists in the communist country who spoke out.
The journal article, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com and slated for publication in the coming days, is set to make waves among the scientific community, as the majority of experts have until recently staunchly denied the origins of COVID-19 were anything other than a natural infection leaping from animals to humans.

SPAIN

Spain to lift ban on cruise ship arrivals: International cruise ships will be able to dock in Spanish ports from June 7, the Spanish government said on Saturday, lifting a ban imposed when the Covid-19 pandemic began.

Savings on electricity bills will be possible from 1 June:
-Householders in Spain will be wise to keep an eye on the time when using domestic appliances from 1 June, as changes which come into effect on that date could mean lower bills if electrical items are used outside peak hours. Even people who make no changes at all could benefit from a reduction of 3.4 per cent, which for an average bill of 60 euros would be a saving of a couple of euros, according to the National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC).
-The days will be divided into three consumption periods: peak, which is the most expensive, between 10am and 2pm and from 6pm to 10pm; flat, from 8am to 10am, 2pm to 6pm and 10pm to midnight; and low, which is the cheapest, between midnight and 8am, and also weekends and public holidays.
-However, there are some ‘buts’ to this new scheme. First, consumers who are already on the nighttime tariff will be charged two euros a month more. Second, people will need to change their habits to gain the most benefit. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202105/28/savings-electricity-bills-will-20210528101344-v.html

Football News- Chelsea beats Manchester City to win UEFA Champions League final for second time: Chelsea won the Champions League for the second time Saturday, beating Manchester City 1-0 thanks to Kai Havertz’s first-half goal as Pep Guardiola’s overthinking proved costly again in the all-English final.
Starting without a striker was expected – Guardiola has preferred that in the Champions League knockout matches – but going without a specialist holding midfielder in Fernandinho or Rodri was a major surprise and seemed to destabilize City.

Recommendations & Requests

 

DigameXtra News- More exposure and now in the top 4 million websites worldwide:
-I have had the DigameXtra radio spots on Coast FM Gold 97.6 updated. This aids in promoting the newsletter and in turn it’s sponsors.
-New Alexa rankings are out. Alexa, owned by Amazon, ranks all the world’s websites in order of popularity and visits received. When I took over DigameXtra in 2018 the Alexa rank was 12,000,000. By mid 2019 I had managed, using SEO tools, to improve to 9,000,000. As of today, of the 1.5 billion websites on the internet, DigameXtra has skyrocketed to the number 3,643,717 position!!!
That places DigameXtra in the top one fifth of one percent (approx. the top 0.2%) of websites worldwide.
That is quite extraordinary for a relatively small regional newsletter. 
Thank you for spreading the word and making DigameXtra the most popular daily expat newsletter in Andalucia!! -Ed.

 

Warning – Strangers in the Campo: Our neighbours in Torrox Campo, off the Frigiliana Road, have had a strange thing happen today. Their gardener arrived this am. We then had a call from our neighbour saying his security camera had alerted him of intruders, and he watched as his gardener had been taken off his guard when a woman on foot, no car in sight, appeared with a bunch of flowers in her hand. She had a camera and said she was taking photos of the house as it was going on the market, and would he let her inside to take more photos. Of course he said no, and knew it was a scam.
She spoke Spanish our neighbour could hear this going on, he could see her taking photos and of the new camera as well.
Just thought I’d warn you in case you see anything similar going on.
Hate that these awful people who are wandering around the campo.
Makes me feel very unsettled. We always thought they wouldn’t come this far off the main road. How naive was I?

The incidence of Covid has now risen for two days in Andalusia but deaths are at a record low: {Translation} Updated: :28/05/2021, 17:40
-The incidence rate of the Covid-19 pandemic in Andalusia has risen this Friday for the second consecutive day. From 164.8 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants it has risen to 166.9 two weeks later, which means that the curve tracing the health crisis is rising slightly. It cannot yet be considered a trend, but it does highlight the fact that the pandemic, far from abating, is still in a saw-toothed phase in terms of the number of infections.
-As for the one-week incidence – the value where changes in the evolution of the pandemic are first noticed – the news is not positive either. This value has also been rising for two days now and is 78.3 on Friday, two points higher than yesterday and three points higher than on Wednesday.
-What does this mean? That Andalusia is still on a plateau of saw-toothed data where there are days where the number of infections is reduced and others – in this case two in a row – where it is rising. In this way, the objective of dropping from 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in two weeks’ time is still a long way off.
-Thus, according to the latest data from the Ministry of Health and Families, Andalusia recorded 1,497 Covid infections yesterday. This is about 50 more than the previous day and about 200 more than the same day of the previous week.
-Where the improvement has been maintained is in the number of deaths from coronavirus. There are only three this Friday, so that the community now has a full week with less than ten deaths from Covid each day.
-As for the number of hospitalised patients, Andalusia recorded 818 on Friday, eight less than yesterday. The community maintains the downward trend and has already halved the number of people admitted for Covid-19. The same is true of the ICUs, which today number 218, 10 fewer than yesterday.

Andalusia will give the European passport to those immunised against Covid from the second week of June: {Translation} Updated: 28/05/2021, 19:30
-Andalusia will be a testing ground for the Covid passport being prepared and coordinated by the European Union. This pioneering project, which is being developed in several Spanish regions, aims to “test the suitability” of these digital vaccination certificates against the coronavirus.
-Sources from the Regional Ministry of Health and Families told ABC that the new health passport will begin to be issued in the second week of June to all those who have completed the vaccination schedule with any of the medicines being administered.
-This will be carried out between 7 and 10 June and around 9 June the new certificate could be issued to those who have completed the vaccination schedule.
-Andalusia has an application, Diraya, to record in its clinical history the vaccination given to each person. This computer system does not currently allow the combination of doses from two different commercial brands to be recorded, which is an added problem when administering the Pfizer vaccine to those who had received the first jab from AstraZeneca, such as essential workers under 60 years of age (teachers, police officers and carers, among others). This is not the case for those who choose to take the second AstraZeneca dose.
*Technical problem*
-The Ministry of Health acknowledges that they have encountered this technical problem and that they are trying to solve it so that all those immunised can have their certificate. However, they warn that the approved passport will be the one issued from the second week of June, which does include all possible combinations, so the Health Department is calling for calm. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-covid-andalucia-andalucia-dara-pasaporte-europeo-inmunizados-frente-covid-partir-segunda-semana-junio-202105281852_noticia.html

 

Spain faces a new AstraZeneca vaccine shortfall crisis: Despite the recommendation that the Pfizer vaccine should be given as a second dose to essential workers under 60 who received a first of AstraZeneca, the majority of people affected are choosing not to take the ‘cocktail’.
Despite insisting that a second vaccination with the AstraZeneca formula should only be administered in “exceptional cases”, in practice it is being totally ignored in the regions where the re-vaccination of this group has already begun.
According to the first estimates, in the regions such as Murcia, Andalucía, Galicia and Catalonia between 70 and 90 per cent of the people are choosing not to mix vaccines and instead are having a repeat jab with the AstraZeneca formula.

We’re very confused as to when we’ll get it. We have also checked on Salud Responde app which says we do not meet the criteria yet. Anyone in the same situation? Anyone have advice? Thanks in advance for your help, Gill and Simon, Torrox, sigillyespana@gmail.com

Health reproaches the communities for not complying with the agreements after the chaos with the second doses of AstraZeneca: The Ministry of Health has asked the autonomous communities to go all together, “giving the same information” to citizens, and that we all “respect the agreements of the Interterritorial Council and the Public Health Commission.”
The matter concerns the chaos generated with the second dose of those under 60 who were administered a first COVID-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca / Oxford- the Ministry advocates that the second be from Pfizer / BioNTech. It was able to approve it by majority in the Public Health Commission, but some communities reject it and have recommended that their citizens opt for AstraZeneca through an informed consent of the risks. The “instruction” is very clear, they say from the Ministry.

PCR/Antigen Lateral Flow Tests: I think I saw a note on DigameXtra maybe six or more weeks ago, telling readers that there are PCR/Antigen Lateral Flow Test clinics at Malaga Airport and in Torrox; I can’t find the article, so if anyone knows of clinics/testing places in Torrox (or between Torrox and Torre del Mar) where I could get one of the above tests before I travel by ferry to England in July, could you reply to me by email.
The booking website at Malaga Airport is only set up to allow me to enter a flight number, not a ferry booking.
Thank you – Anne – Caleta

Andalusia back to add more cases of Covid eve and the week before, with fewer inpatient: {Translation} Updated: 26/05/2021, 14:25h
-Andalusia recorded a new rise in the number of Covid infections on Wednesday, with 1,264 positives compared to 1,011 the previous day. The figure is 120 more positive than on the same day last week. The statistics also show eight deaths due to the coronavirus, half of those recorded seven days ago.
-By provinces, Seville has the most positives, with 405, followed by Granada with 214, Malaga with 211, Huelva with 127 and Jaen with 101. Below a hundred are Cadiz with 97, Cordoba with 75 and Almeria with 34.
-The evolution of the fourth wave continues, however, in a plateau phase as evidenced by the static behaviour of the incidence rate which remains at 164 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, dropping only a few tenths with Tuesday’s record. The 7-day rate has dropped somewhat further today to 75 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
-By provinces, Huelva enters the extreme alert level rate by exceeding 251 cases today. Together with Seville (219) and Malaga (126), these are the provinces where the 14-day rate has risen. Granada (230) and Jaén (209) are also above 200 cases.
-In seven days the cumulative incidence rate improves and in no province does it represent more than half of the two-week rate. In this indicator, Huelva has 115 cases and Almería, currently the province with the lowest incidence, has 35 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
Better data in hospitals
-In view of the progressive advance of vaccination, the data on the pressure of Covid incidence in hospitals is now a key to a more objective analysis of the evolution of the pandemic. In this case it is much more favourable than when analysing infections in isolation. The number of hospitalised Covid patients has dropped significantly on Wednesday, with 22 fewer patients. There are 877 admitted with Covid, of which 223 are being treated in the ICU, 19 less than on Tuesday.
-This data puts the percentage of conventional beds occupied by ICU patients below 5 percent of the total, a record that defines a low alert level situation. The number of ICU patients is close to the 10 percent that marks this low alert level.
-Seville, with 249 hospital admissions and 69 ICU patients, is the province with the greatest pressure of care, followed by Granada, with 175 admissions and 52 ICU patients. Almería is the province with the fewest hospitalised patients (42) and Huelva has the fewest ICU patients in its hospitals (5).
*Vaccination*
-With regard to the progress of the Vaccination Plan, 1,458,201 Andalusians have been immunised, having received the two doses of the Covid vaccine as of 25 May. This represents 20.64 percent of the population over the age of 16. Andalusia has administered 4,337,615 doses, 95.89 percent of those received as of yesterday.

Hours before, the president of the Junta, Juanma Moreno, also outlined the public health authority’s objective to start the vaccination of the 50 and 51 year olds during the first week of June while the following week is “scheduled those under 50”, he revealed.
In addition, since this Tuesday 52 and 53 year olds have been able to make an appointment to receive their first dose of the vaccine.

Commercially viable electricity from nuclear fusion a step closer thanks to British breakthrough: Initial results from the UK Atomic Energy Authority’s MAST Upgrade experiment suggest that the world-first could mean developing fusion energy becomes easier.
Producing electricity using a fusion reactor is still in the experimental stage but experts have said fusion energy – based on the same principle by which stars create heat and light – could be a safe and sustainable part of our energy supply in the future.

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.

Recommendations & Requests

 

The new Electricity tariff 2.0TD, from 1 June:
(Note: This is a reader submission. This tariff change has been difficult to get accurate, updated info on, as covered in the May 18 & 19  issues of DigameXtra. For info regarding your own situation always consult directly with the supplier. -Ed.)
-With precious little advanced publicity from either Government or the Electricity suppliers, most domestic consumers will be move on to this new tariff for their electricity, from 1 June.
Details of the new tariff are here (Note: There are no publication or update dates on either of these sources so the info may not be current. -Ed.)
https://comparadorluz.com/tarifas/acceso, among other places.
One site in English: https://murciatoday.com/what_will_the_new_spanish_electricity_tariffs_from_june_1_mean_to_you_energy_nordic_1594864-a.html
2.0TD replaces the previous 2.0 & 2.1 DHA (high/low periods) and DHS (high/medium/low) billing plans, and is being marketed as simpler. There are, however a few things to watch with this change:
-The new tariff works on the same time-slots for both summer and winter. Watch it! This doesn’t mean that you can just program any time switches you have (for things like water heating, pool-pumping, dish-washing…) and forget about them. The cheapest weekday period (night-time 00:00 to 08:00) will stay as that throughout the year, but while the twice-yearly clock-changing is still happening (under review), we must assume that Endesa etc will shift their meter clocks too.
-So, if you set the actual time on your time switch, and just forget about it, you could find that your usage no longer slots completely within the chosen (cheaper) time slot.
Remedy: Allow a margin of at least an hour at each end of the cheap slot, and don’t go up to the limits of 00:00 and 08:00 etc. That way, the slot can move around by an hour with the seasons, and you won’t need to re-time your switch/appliance.
-Overall good news?
The pricing hasn’t (that I’m aware) been announced yet, and it’s up to the separate energy companies to price their tariff slots. Endesa are rumoured to have come out with a lowered price for peak (punta) periods, but are also rumoured to have wound up the cost of the plano and valle units. No figures yet (that I know) for potencia charges. We’ll have to wait and see.
Valle pricing for all weekends (and national holidays) is welcome, and simple.
However, the morning plano slot (08:00-10:00) is very short, and may be difficult to take advantage of (eg for the morning washing and drying).
-Your smart meter
Smart meters will be getting re-programmed for 2.0TD, and will display the three unit totals, P1 P2 and P3, for the three time slots.
Not unknown for Endesa to make mistakes with meter timing (presumably unintentionally), so might be worth checking now and again that the right slot shows as “active” at the correct time. Getting any billing corrected is a mammoth task, as mistakes are almost never acknowledged.
Hope useful.

De-escalation in three stages and four phases of alert: Andalusia’s two Covid plans: {Translation} Updated: 25/05/2021 12:48
-The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, announced on Tuesday that the committee of experts advising the Andalusian government will not finally meet this week, as planned, but next week in order to analyse more data on the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic in the region.
-This meeting was to allow Andalusia to move on to phase 2 of the de-escalation plan designed by the Junta for the transition to normality after the vaccination process against the coronavirus. As announced by Moreno, the plan envisaged three phases.
-Andalusia is currently in the first of these phases. This is what the Junta called the “stabilisation” phase because it is intended to be the time when the figures for the fourth wave of the pandemic stabilise and fall to levels close to those of last summer, when the incidence was very low.
-This stabilisation phase was to last from 9 May – when the state of alert ended – until 31 May, i.e. next week. But the evolution of the pandemic data, with the accumulated incidence stagnating at around 160 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, has led the Andalusian government to put the brakes on the move to the next phase.
-Thus, the “advance” phase, which was to begin on 1 June and reach the 20th of that month, will not begin at the beginning of next month. It is delayed until at least the second week of June. This may lead – and this is not an extreme that has been explained so far – to a delay in the rest of the dates. In other words, the normalisation phase, which is supposed to start on 21 June and is normal as it was known before the pandemic, could in turn be delayed by a week.
*Health alerts*
-Parallel to this – which may lead to some confusion – are the health alert levels. That is to say, regardless of the phase of de-escalation and in accordance with various criteria – contagions, hospitalisation, positivity rate, ICU occupancy, etc. – the health districts and areas can be at different levels between 1 and 4.
-Each level, in this case, entails a different set of restrictions and capacities. The higher the level of alert, the greater the restrictions. Thus, Seville is at level 3, the Costa del Sol at level 1 and Cordoba at level 2.
-In this way, there are two parallel processes containing the pandemic. On the one hand, the health alert level, which goes from 1 to 4 and reduces the capacity and opening hours of shops and restaurants. And on the other, the de-escalation plan, with three phases, which aims to culminate this summer with a return to normality.
-The first process is led by the Junta de Andalucía and advised by the committee of experts. The second, also led by the Andalusian government, is advised by the provincial health committees. The first has been delayed by a week; the second will meet normally and without delay.

-This Tuesday it has also been reported that the Junta de Andalucía has postponed the meeting of the committee of experts which was initially scheduled for this Thursday and in which new measures aimed at relaxing the restrictions in force to curb the advance of the infection were expected. The postponement to next week comes after the Regional Ministry of Health and Families recorded an increase in the incidence of the virus in the community.
-Regarding the vaccination process, it has been announced that people born in 1968 and 1969 can make an appointment for the first dose of the vaccine against COVID-19 from today at ClicSalud+, through the mobile application and Salud Responde (955 54 50 60) or at their health centre.

{Translation} Updated: 24/05/2021, 13:31
-Andalusia has 1,400 new cases of coronavirus infection on Monday, 324 more than 48 hours ago but 97 fewer than on the same day last week. With five more deaths in the statistics, the region will exceed ten thousand deaths due to Covid-19 this week.
-The incidence rate has increased by six tenths in the 14-day accumulated rate (166.6) and two and a half points in seven days (76.6 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants). Huelva is now the province with the highest incidence rate and data at extreme risk level with 254 cases at 14 days and 126 at seven days. Above 200 cases per 100,000 inhabitants are Granada (244 cases at 14 days), Seville (218) and Jaén (214). Only Cádiz (98) and Almería (81) have cumulative incidence rates of less than one hundred cases.
*Infection rates in the capitals*
-The epidemiological situation in the provincial capitals is very diverse. Cadiz is the only one with 14-day cumulative rates at low risk. (39 cases). The rest exceed one hundred cases: Almeria has 107, Cordoba 114, Malaga 123, Seville 161 and Jaen 184. Above 200 cases, Huelva capital has 262 and Granada, with 292 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

What To Do When Your Business Is Hacked: As businesses move to a remote workforce, hackers have increased their activity to capitalize on new security holes. Cybercriminals often use unsophisticated methods that continue to be extremely successful. These include phishing emails to harvest credentials and gain easy access to business-critical environments.
Hackers are also using ransomware to hold your data hostage, demanding a ransom payment in exchange for a decryption key that unlocks your stolen data.
When dealing with a cyberattack, there are practical steps you want to follow. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/05/what-to-do-when-your-business-is-hacked.html

 

Spanish Telescopes locate key molecule at the origin of life for the first time in space: Named ethanolamine, it is the key molecule at the origin of life because it contains the four fundamental chemical elements (oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen) and an international group of researchers has detected it for the first time in the space.
The research has been led by researchers from the Astrobiology Center (CAB), a joint center of the Higher Council for Scientific Research and the National Institute of Aerospace Technology of the Ministry of Defense, and the discovery has been made in a molecular cloud located in the center of the galaxy.
Its discovery has been possible thanks to radio telescope 30 meters in diameter installed at the Pico Veleta (Granada) and the 40-meter one at the Yebes Observatory (Guadalajara).
“Our results suggest that ethanolamine is synthesized in a very efficient way in interstellar space in molecular clouds where new stars and planetary systems are formed,” the principal investigator highlighted.
The appearance of cell membranes, research centers have highlighted, represents a very important milestone in the origin of life on Earth, since they are in charge of maintaining stable conditions inside the cells, protecting both the genetic material and the metabolic machinery.

Are Crypto Wallets Safe?…Not For Long! IRS Wants Tools for Cracking Crypto Wallets: As more people across the globe get into trading and purchasing goods using cryptocurrencies—even the federal government—the IRS’s Criminal Investigations division wants “reliable” tools and processes for cracking crypto wallets.
The Digital Forensics Unit of the IRS is interested in purchasing tools capable of cracking crypto wallets, the IRS also wants to help “mature the process” to “obtain reliable results.”
“The explicit outcome of this requirement is to tame the cybersecurity research into measured, repeatable, consistent digital forensics processes that can be trained and followed in a digital forensics’ laboratory,” contracting officials wrote. “The tools and processes should be usable for any crypto wallet on the market, including software and hardware models.”
(Once the IRS gets these tools, no doubt they will be available to hackers as well. -Ed.)

El Puente Christian Fellowship is a loving, multi-national, Bible believing community of Christ, who meet each Sunday at 11 am to worship The Lord. We enjoy a time of worship with contemporary songs and traditional hymns, and a message brought to us by one of the Elders or a visiting speaker.
The church meeting hall is situated underneath Maroma Inmobiliaria Puente Don Manuel, Cruce de Periana – 29713.
Full directions and further information can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/El-Puente-Christian-Fellowship-105285888299225/or please contact us by email on elpuentechristianfellowship@gmail.com. For those who cannot join us in person, we aim to stream Sunday services via the Facebook page (subject to a good internet connection!).
