COVID-19

Covid Andalucia- Andalusia out of the extreme risk after a month and 20 days: {Translation, summary} Updated: 30/08/2021, 12:54
– Andalusia recorded a total of 1,359 infections on Monday 30 August, 155 fewer than the previous day (48 hours) and 1,018 fewer than those reported seven days ago, according to data provided today by the Ministry of Health and Families, which recorded nine deaths, ten fewer than on Saturday and four fewer than a week ago.
-As for the nine deaths recorded in the last 48 hours, there are four in Malaga, two in Seville and Cordoba and one in Cadiz. Almería, Granada, Jaén and Huelva are the provinces with no deaths due to coronavirus.
-The cumulative incidence rate of the community continues to fall and stands at 237.8, so it leaves the level of “extreme risk” – which stands at 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – and is 16.7 points lower than the previous day (48 hours) and 100.6 than a week ago when the rate was 338.4. It is also the lowest since July 8 when it stood at 224.7.
-By provinces, Seville continues once again to have the most cases with 469 positives, followed by Malaga with 267, Jaen with 117, Huelva with 116, Cordoba with 109, Cadiz with 100, Almeria with 99 and Granada with 82.

Moreno hopes to “open up” the tap of Covid restrictions more as of tomorrow: {Translation, summary} Updated: 30Aug21 7:52pm
-The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, is cautious about the evolution of the pandemic but confident that the restrictions to combat the coronavirus will be relaxed. “I want to be optimistic and I hope, wish and trust that tomorrow, when we meet with the committee of experts, who are the ones who have to practically authorise this possibility, we can continue to open up spaces for the economy, for life and, in short, for normality,” he stressed on Monday. “Where the epidemiological situation is improving, the levels go down; when we lower the levels, we extend the limits and, therefore, there is more room for individual freedom and economic activity,” he explained.
-The Andalusian president did not want to “advance anything” about this possible relaxation of the restrictions, coinciding with the end of the August holidays and the resumption of the political year, until “tomorrow the appropriate reports arrive” on the accumulated incidence in the last 14 days (237.8 at present), hospital admissions and admissions to the ICU.
Clearer horizonore than a month to get the vaccine,” he insisted. Source, Spanish: https://sevilla.abc.es/andalucia/sevi-juanma-moreno-confia-abrir-mas-grifo-restricciones-covid-partir-manana-202108301312_noticia.html

SPAIN

Electricity prices break all records in August: almost 200% more expensive than in 2020: {Translation}
– The price of electricity on the wholesale market has broken all records in our country in August. With an average price of 105.94 euros per megawatt hour (MWh), it became the most expensive month in our history.
-Moreover, the month ends on a high note, with a new all-time high: 130.53 euros per MWh. It will be the second most expensive price in Europe, after Greece (130.64 euros).
-The August figure is 14.64% more expensive than that of July which, at 92.41 euros, was the current record. It is also 192.73% higher than August 2020 (36.19 euros per MWh). The average for the first eight months of this year is 68.48 euros, 123% higher than the same period last year (30.72 euros).
-In 24 of the 31 days of this month, the average electricity price has been above 100 euros per MWh. The forecasts of the experts, the government and the electricity companies are that it will remain at this level until at least the end of the year.
-Experts say the prices have been pushed up by a rise in energy demand during a very hot summer and also a decrease in wind-generated power – due to the lack of wind – on top of price increases for gas and CO2 emissions.
-The consumers most affected by the increase in electricity prices in the wholesale market are the almost 11 million domestic customers who have the regulated tariff or pvpc, the most volatile in our neighbouring countries. The rest of consumers have annual contracts with retailers.
-The cost of electricity accounts for approximately 35% of the total electricity bill, 32% are charges (premiums for renewables, tariff deficit, etc.), 22% are tolls (transmission and distribution costs) and 10% are taxes.

MALAGA

CSIF warns of poor maintenance of SAS ambulances in Axarquia: {Translation}
-The Central Independent Trade Union and Civil Servants, CSIF, in Malaga, warns of the poor maintenance of the Andalusian Health Service (SAS) medical transport vehicles by ASM Ambulancias, the company in charge of it, in the Axarquia health area, after the advanced life support unit in Velez-Malaga burnt down on Monday.
-Fortunately, all the occupants of the vehicle at the time of the incident – a medical emergency technician, a doctor and a nurse – were able to leave the vehicle before it caught fire. However, CSIF believes that this incident, which has put workers and users at significant risk, could have been avoided if ASM had carried out proper maintenance work on the ambulances.
-As far as this union has been able to learn, the workers themselves, both health emergency technicians and medical staff of the health centre of the municipality, have complained several times in the last ten days to the company to check the condition of the burned ambulance, after detecting various problems and malfunctions, without ASM has taken any action. In addition, CSIF has been warning for years about the lack of maintenance by the company, and has repeatedly reported the poor condition of the vehicles, both to ASM officials in Malaga and to the SAS, calling for urgent action to ensure the safety of workers and users.
-More than a year ago, in March 2020, the union took the medical transport company to the Labour Inspectorate for the poor maintenance of the vehicles, denouncing that the ambulances used in the Axarquia health area for the transfer of patients were not subject to any type of review, with the consequent risk to workers and patients.
-The lack of maintenance was evident in the state of the tyres of some ambulances, as well as in the interior of the vehicles, where some of the elements with which the ambulances are equipped, such as oxygen cylinders, were fastened with a simple crepe bandage.
-This union denounces that, more than a year later, this problem has not been solved, and continues to represent a major risk factor for the safety and health of the workers involved, as well as for the patients transferred in these vehicles.
-For all these reasons, CSIF has once again called for a review of the state of the ambulances assigned to the Axarquia health area, and for the necessary actions to be taken to guarantee safe conditions. For this union, which does not rule out any action, it is unacceptable that both the company awarded the contract and the administration, who are aware of these breaches, allow the service to be provided in these conditions, compromising the health and safety of all those involved.

Seven new earthquakes registered off the coast of Malaga:
The National Geographic Institute (IGN) reported a new series of seismic movements with an epicentre in the south of the Alboran Sea after more than ten earthquakes were detected the day before, Saturday, August 28. The first and largest of them registered a magnitude of 4.9 on the Richter scale.
These seismic movements are added to the series of earthquakes detected in recent months in the southern area of ??the Alboran Sea, which between April 17 and August 12 registered about 1,500 earthquakes of varying intensity, some of which were felt in Melilla, Almería, Granada or Malaga and are likely to continue throughout the year.

EUROPE

EU takes US off safe travel list; backs travel restrictions: The European Union recommended Monday that its 27 nations reinstate restrictions on tourists from the U.S. because of rising coronavirus infections there, but member countries will keep the option of allowing fully vaccinated U.S. travelers in.
-The decision by the European Council to remove the U.S. from a safe list of countries for nonessential travel reverses the advice that it gave in June, when the bloc recommended lifting restrictions on all U.S. travelers before the summer tourism season.
-The guidance issued Monday is nonbinding, however. American tourists should expect a mishmash of travel rules across the continent since the EU has no unified COVID-19 tourism policy and national EU governments have the authority to decide whether or how they keep their borders open during the pandemic.

New Fakebook Alternative- Washington state based “DENREI” Uses Email to Create Secure New Platform That Eliminates the Need for “Risky” Apps:
-Broadcast directly from your email client only to people you have invited to follow your posts. Only receive posts from people you have followed.
-Only members can reply to DENREI exclusive emails.
-Send & receive comments on posts privately.
-Nowadays social media includes Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and so on. These media applications are used by so-called big techs to collect and sell personal information and advertisements. In addition, recently there have been problems with censorship depending on what is posted. We don’t think it’s right that the free communication space of the Internet is being regulated. We believe that there should be social media that respects the freedom of speech, the freedom to listen and the freedom not to listen. Also, many of today’s social media have the problem of distributing information not only to corporations but also to governments. This is because social media is all operated within the world of web and apps.
-We thought that many of these problems could be solved by using the medium of email instead of the web or web applications. Needless to say, email is a privacy-protected medium. If a third party wants to see the contents of an email, it needs a warrant.
-DENREI Social requires all users to have an @DENREI.COM email address. And while you are free to send and receive email between @DENREI.COM users, you are not allowed to send to or receive email from external email addresses. Each user has his or her own mailing list to which @DENREI.COM will broadcast your posts to by e-mail, and their own dashboard to do account and follower management.

SPAIN

Bank charges keep on rising and some customers now pay €240 a year just to have an account: Some banks are charging their customers up to 240 euros a year – in other words 20 euros a month – just for having an account with them. The commissions for the most basic financial services keep going up and the conditions demanded by some banks to exempt their clients from these charges are increasingly severe. This is the way the banking sector has decided to increase its own income in a scenario of negative interest rates and it is determined to squeeze the most out of it.
In the first six months of this year all the big banks increased their earnings from commissions, as they themselves reveal in their results announcements. The five biggest banks in the country alone earned more than 10 billion euros just through charges and commissions.

Largest rose greenhouse in Europe trades red roses for medicinal cannabis: The municipality of Garray (Soria) in Spain could boast until recently that it hosted “the largest rose greenhouse in Europe.” However, the company that owned it, Aleia Roses, went into liquidation. Although at first, the new owners wanted to make roses compatible with other crops, between February and April this year it decided to uproot the rose bushes altogether to focus on “the new project”, medicinal cannabis.
In August 2021, the company got the go-ahead when it received a license from the Spanish Medicines Agency (AEMPS) to cultivate three hectares of land and produce medical cannabis. “Using all the space for cannabis cultivation could mean doubling all of Europe’s production,” said Lamata.

MALAGA

Almáchar to experience another “Ajoblanco” without tastings: {Translation} For the second consecutive year, the oldest gastronomic festival in the region will not be held, although on this occasion there will be some on-site activities.
-The first Saturday in September has had the flavour of ajoblanco for more than half a century. Thousands of litres of this delicious cold broth of Arabic origin, made from almonds and garlic, were distributed during the day, accompanied by muscatel grapes and other local products such as wine and sultanas. But for the second year running, this traditional tasting will not be able to take place due to health reasons.
-The Almáchar Town Hall wants to keep alive this festival, declared of Tourist Interest by the Provincial Council of Malaga, with a nod to previous editions, reflected in a new virtual program, but this year will also feature some activities such as the Flamenco Night, which to be carried out in compliance with all security measures, prior registration will be required to attend.
-It will also be necessary to register to take part in the demonstration that the chef Roberto Soler will offer in the María Zambrano Park to teach how to make the traditional recipe in a more innovative way.

Torrox extends the guided tours of the Centre of Interpretation of the Lighthouse until the 8th of September: {Translation}
Torrox Town Hall has announced this Saturday that the guided tours to the Archaeological Ensemble Interpretation Centre of the Lighthouse of Torrox Costa have been a total success this summer. For this reason, the Consistory has decided to extend the period of visits for the next two weeks. All those interested will be able to do so on 31 August and 1, 7 and 8 September, i.e. Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 21.30 hours.
It will be necessary to book a place in advance at the centre itself, by calling 952 53 85 25 or by emailing cifaro@torrox.es. Places will be limited and following all health recommendations.

Eric Clapton Seemingly Addresses COVID-19 Policies in New Protest Song ‘This Has Gotta Stop’:
-On Friday (Aug. 27), the 76-year-old legendary musician — who previously said he refuses to play live shows that require attendees to prove they’ve been vaccinated — dropped the politically-charged new song “This Has Gotta Stop.”
Lyrics- “This has gotta stop, enough is enough/ I can’t take this BS any longer/ It’s gone far enough, you wanna claim my soul/ You’ll have to come and break down this door,” he sings in the opening lines of the bluesy track.
-In the accompanying animated music video, faceless figures gather in protest holding signs emblazoned with such messages as “Liberty,” “Enough is Enough” and “Stop.” Elsewhere, the clip features socially charged references to the over consumption of media and concerns about climate change.

Microsoft is threatening to withhold Windows 11 updates if your computer’s CPU is older than mid 2017:
-Previously we wrote how Microsoft’s Windows 11 won’t technically leave millions of PCs behind — the company told us it won’t actually block you from installing Windows 11 on a PC with an older CPU, so long as you download and manually install a Windows 11 system installer ISO file all by yourself. But it turns out even that technicality has a technicality. Microsoft is now threatening to withhold Windows Updates from your copy of Windows 11 — potentially even security updates — if you take that route.
-We’re not sure why the company didn’t mention it in our original briefing, but Microsoft has since told The Verge that unsupported PCs won’t be entitled to receive Windows Updates, and that even security and driver updates may be withheld. It’s not just security updates at stake, by the way. If you’re unwilling or unable to replace your older-than-Intel 8th-Gen-CPU (2017), Windows 11 could theoretically be an operating system where you go back to the days of manually downloading driver updates for all your hardware.
(This same thing happened when Win 10 was released. There were some compatibility issues for the first year, but to Microsofts credit, after that Win 10 became very friendly to older computers. Will it be the same with Win 11? I doubt it. Remember, I have previously covered here how Microsoft plans on making Windows a subscription service, like they have done with MS Office 365, beginning in some form in 2023, to establish a “flow of income” from each user rather than make one-off sales. Not to worry, Win 10 is supported until October 14, 2025. Any computer you now use that is pre 2017 will be ready to be replaced by late 2025. -Ed.)

Do you know that our Ultra Moisturizing Body & Hand Cream is made from 100% natural ingredients?
The powerful combination of aloe vera, beeswax, grapeseed, wheat germ, shea-butter and lavender essential oil will give your skin long-hours hydration and sun protection.
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.

-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.

Covid Andalucia- Andalusia registers 1,698 positives, 28 deaths and its rate drops to 270 points: {Translation, summary}
Updated: 27/08/2021 14:18
-On Friday 27 August, Andalusia recorded a total of 1,698 positive cases of coronavirus, 404 fewer in 24 hours and 953 fewer than those reported seven days ago, according to data provided today by the Ministry of Health and Families, which recorded 28 deaths, five more than the previous day and the second highest figure this week.
-The cumulative incidence rate of the community has fallen 19.5 points compared to the previous day to stand at 270, which also represents a decrease of 101.2 points compared to the rate released a week ago, which was 371.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, and the lowest in more than a month since 10 July stood at 259.2.

Covid Malaga- Malaga province leaves the coronavirus ‘extreme risk’ zone: The fifth wave of the coronavirus in Malaga is one step closer to being history, despite the fact that some of the data this Friday, 27 August is not all good news.
The incidence rate in the province has fallen to 246 cases per 100,000 inhabitants – some 30 less than on Thursday, which means it drops from the ‘extreme risk’ to ‘high risk’ zone, something that has not happened for almost two months.
On a negative note, Malaga has added 13 coronavirus deaths this Friday.
Just under 350 patients are now reported to be admitted to the province’s hospitals, whereas it reached 500 at the peak of the fifth wave. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202108/27/malaga-province-leaves-coronavirus-20210827165034.html

Publishing the new maps in support of the Council Recommendation on a coordinated approach to the restriction of free movement within the block amid COVID-19, the agency has noted that the situation in some EU and Schengen Area countries continues to deteriorate including in Germany and Sweden.

Whistleblower Edward Snowden Announces- Apple Just Declared War on Your Privacy: By now you’ve probably heard that Apple plans to push a new and uniquely intrusive surveillance system out to many of the more than one billion iPhones it has sold, which all run the behemoth’s proprietary, take-it-or-leave-it software. This new offensive is tentatively slated to begin with the launch of iOS 15?—almost certainly in mid-September?—with the devices of its US user-base designated as the initial targets. We’re told that other countries will be spared, but not for long. Photo:Wallsdesk. Full article: https://edwardsnowden.substack.com/p/all-seeing-i 

 

Microsoft Cloud Hacked Again- Microsoft warns customers that Azure Cosmos DB vulnerability exposed their databases for years: Why it matters…As part of its transition to a cloud company, Microsoft has been extolling the supposed virtues of digital transformation and encouraging organizations to move their businesses from on-premises to the Azure cloud. Security researchers (including DoctorLaptop here on Digame-Torrox/DigameXtra for the past 10 years) have long warned about the potential security nightmares that could ensue, and now Microsoft is forced to admit to its customers that a single vulnerability in Azure’s flagship Cosmos DB database left their main databases open to be read, changed, or even deleted by anyone with knowledge of the issue.
-Microsoft on Thursday warned many of its cloud computing customers that for more than two years, their data has been susceptible to attacks.
-Overall, Microsoft’s been having a tough time as of late. After the SolarWinds fiasco, the Redmond giant has had to deal with at least ten hacker groups targeting Microsoft Exchange Server exploits, and, more recently, a stubborn print spooler vulnerability in Windows that will probably haunt the company for months.

Researchers discover three supermassive black holes merging together in nearby universe: Supermassive black holes from three galaxies have been found merging together to form a triple active galactic nucleus, a compact region at the centre of a newly discovered galaxy that has a much-higher-than-normal luminosity, Indian scientists said.
The IIA team explains that if two galaxies collide, their black hole will also come closer by transferring the kinetic energy to the surrounding gas. The distance between the blackholes decreases with time until the separation is around a parsec (3.26 light-years). The two black holes are then unable to lose any further kinetic energy in order to get even closer and merge. This is known as the final parsec problem. The presence of a third black hole can solve this problem. The dual merging blackholes can transfer their energy to the third blackhole and merge with each other.

Three Ginger Kittens For Adoption: Torrox Costa. I care for a colony of cats. A new female arrived a few months ago and she was heavily pregnant and gave birth to three beautiful kittens. I am looking for homes for them rather than leave them on the streets to become homeless cats. All cats deserve a loving home and they will bring you a great deal of joy and pleasure.
They are beautiful kittens. All three are ginger but different shades and different tabby patterns. Two are female and one is a male and they would love a family of their own.
They all have names according to their colour and behaviour. Blaze is the male and he has large wide stripes with beautiful yellow eyes. Peach is a beauty and she has small ginger stripes and is feisty. Ruby is a beige colour, a little quieter than the others and is a bit shy. She is a colour which I have never seen before and is quite tiny in comparison to the others. They all love chilling in cardboard boxes and playing games with each other. They love one another.
If you would like to adopt one of these beautiful kittens, then please email me on
patricianerja at hotmail dot com or you can
call Patricia on 952531156

COVID-19

Covid Andalucia- Andalucía’s Covid incidence rate drops below 300: A total of 2,102 coronavirus positive tests have been recorded in the Andalusian region this Thursday, 26 August, that is 342 more in the last 24 hours and 71 more than those recorded seven days ago.
-The Junta de Andalucía’s Ministry of Health, has also added 23 deaths, seven more than the day before. Of the 23 deaths registered in the last 24 hours, in Seville there were eleven, followed by five in Malaga, two in Huelva, Jaén and Almeria and one in Cordoba. Cádiz and Granada provinces did not register any Covid deaths in the latest update.
-The cumulative incidence rate of the region has dropped some 17.6, compared to the previous day, to stand at 289.5.
-There has been a decrease of 76 patients in hospital with Covid compared to the day before to stand at 1,145. There are 217 patients registered in intensive care units, eight fewer than Wednesday and 12 fewer than a week ago.

SPAIN

Electricity price in Spain breaks all records, with the most expensive bills in history on the way:
-The wholesale price of electricity in Spain continues to climb – without respite. When it was thought that it had peaked, this Thursday (26 August) the average daily price of electricity in the wholesale market will shoot to a new all-time high, reaching 122.76 euros per megawatt hour (MWh).
-The previous record was set on 13 August, when the energy price hit 117.29 euros/MWh, but the latest increase will see it jump more than five euros compared to that. This is despite a brief drop in the wholesale price being registered last week.
-Therefore, the average wholesale price of electricity will be triple that of a year ago, when it stood at 46.25 euros.
-It means that the electricity bill of an average user in August will be the most expensive in history, with an increase in the first fortnight of 43.7 per cent compared to the same period last year, according to the Facua consumers organisation.
-Therefore, the average user will pay 27.85 euros more than in August 2020, when the bill stood at 63.77 euros. The reduction in sales tax to 10 per cent until December, while the average price per megawatt hour is above 45 euros, dampens the rise by 9.16 euros. If the normal 21 per cent were still applied, the average bill would top 100.78 euros. Source:

Ribera admits that electricity will remain at “high prices” until 2022 and questions Podemos’ proposals: {Translation, summary}
-The third vice-president, Teresa Ribera, admitted on Thursday that “all indications point” to the fact that electricity “will continue to have high prices” during the last quarter of the year.
-The Minister for Ecological Transition also considered it “pertinent” to open a debate on the taxation of energy and electricity, but warned that this matter “has a notable technical complexity from the point of view of its relationship with other taxes” and that, although the Treasury is “reviewing” the data, “there will be no results” until the beginning of 2022.

MALAGA

Announced- the extension of the road from Canillas to Cómpeta by 2022: {Translation, summary}
The Councillor for Development, Infrastructure and Territorial Planning, Marifrán Carazo, together with the mayors of the Axarquia region of Málaga, presented this Thursday the road safety project on the A-7207 road, which connects Canillas de Albaida and Torrox and which will receive an investment of 1.8 million euros to widen the roadway in a four kilometre stretch and improve traffic flow at a dangerous junction by building a roundabout. The section of the road runs between kilometres 0 and 4 of the A-7207, between the municipalities of Canillas de Albaida and Cómpeta. The councillor has advanced that, if the planned deadlines are met, the work will be awarded before the end of the year and can begin in the first months of 2022 with a completion period of 14 months.

Dozens of civilians, 12 U.S. troops killed in Kabul airport attack: Islamic State struck the crowded gates of Kabul airport in a suicide bomb attack on Thursday, killing scores of civilians and 12 U.S. troops, and throwing into mayhem the airlift of tens of thousands of Afghans desperate to flee.
-Kabul health officials were quoted as saying 60 civilians were killed. Video shot by Afghan journalists showed dozens of bodies strewn around a canal on the edge of the airport. At least two blasts rocked the area, witnesses said.
-Islamic State, which has emerged in Afghanistan as enemies both of the West and the Taliban, claimed responsibility in a statement in which it said one of its suicide bombers targeted “translators and collaborators with the American army”.
-Violence by Islamic State is a challenge for the Taliban, who have promised Afghans they will bring peace to the country they swiftly conquered. A Taliban spokesman described the attack as the work of “evil circles” who would be suppressed once foreign troops leave. Photo:MaxarTech.

Cómpeta Art Walk is back on September 17, 18 & 19 2021 after an 18 month break:
This will be the 12th year that this beautiful white mountain village has hosted the Art Walk, with many international artists, sculptors and craftspeople exhibiting in their own homes, galleries or in municipal buildings.
You will get the chance to talk to the exhibitors about their motivation, inspiration and creative processes in their art, and of course to purchase pieces.
All spaces are within a manageable walking distance of each other (some steep roads, this is a mountain village), and can be viewed in one day.
As there will be a 2 hour break from 2.00pm – 4.00pm why not book a table at one of the many wonderful restaurants that are scattered throughout Cómpeta, or indeed make a weekend of it and book your own accommodation.
There will be live music on Saturday night in the main square and possibly other smaller musical events throughout the weekend.
Admission is absolutely free, no need to book (only accommodation and restaurants), so don’t miss out on this fabulous event.
We hope to see you at Cómpeta Art Walk on 17, 18 & 19 September 2021.

The ‘Impressionists’ stay at Pier One until 12 September: {Translation}
-The immersive exhibition Impressionists extends its stay in Malaga until Sunday 12 September. Since it opened its doors last June at Muelle Uno, the exhibition has won the public’s favour and has been seen by more than 10,000 people, as confirmed on Wednesday by the Art Apart production company, organisers of the proposal. The exhibition will maintain its opening hours and prices during this extension: it can be seen from 11:00 to 22:00 every day, with passes every hour, and with tickets starting at 5 euros (free for children under five years of age).
-Impressionists combines technology and art, moving image and music, to provide a total immersion experience in the works of the most important artists of this movement that emerged in 19th century France. Monet, Cézanne, Manet, Gauguin, Renoir, Van Gogh, Morisot, Degas, Pissarro and Toulouse-Lautrec are some of the protagonists of the exhibition.
-The exhibition presents the most important works of these artists projected on twelve giant screens 4.50 metres high and up to 16 metres wide, allowing visitors to appreciate in detail the technique and genius of the painters of the Impressionist movement. The exhibition is divided into two different rooms: the first, didactic in nature, offers visitors an illustrative introduction to Impressionism and its greatest creators, while the second room, with a surface area of 940 square metres, houses the purely audiovisual exhibition.

Cancel Culture Madness- Baby on Nevermind album cover sues Nirvana over child sexual exploitation: Spencer Elden, who appeared as a naked baby on one of rock music’s most iconic album covers – Nevermind by Nirvana – is suing the band, claiming he was sexually exploited as a child.
In a lawsuit filed in a Californian district court against numerous parties, including the surviving members of the band, Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love, and the record labels that released or distributed the album in the last three decades, Elden alleges the defendants produced child pornography with the image, which features him swimming naked towards a dollar bill with his genitalia visible.
Elden, who was four months old when the image was made, says he has suffered “lifelong damages” from the 1991 album cover, including “extreme and permanent emotional distress with physical manifestations”, plus loss of education, wages, and “enjoyment of life”.

An Asteroid has Been Discovered That Crosses Mercury’s Orbit:
Astronomers have spotted the fastest-ever asteroid orbiting Sun, and at times, it gets closer to the Sun than the planet Mercury.
Asteroid 2021 PH27 was discovered earlier this month, and it has the shortest orbital period of any known asteroid in the Solar System. The orbit of the approximately 1-kilometer-diameter asteroid brings it as close as 20 million kilometers (12 million miles or 0.13 au), from the Sun every 113 days.
The asteroid is so close to the Sun’s massive gravitational field, it experiences the largest general relativistic effects of any known Solar System object, the team said. At its closest point to the Sun, the object likely almost 500 degrees C (900 degrees F). That’s hot enough to melt lead.
Followup observations of this object reveals that it is on an unstable orbit, one that crosses the orbits of Mercury and Venus. This means, astronomers say, that within a few million years it will likely be destroyed in a collision with one of these planets or the Sun, or it will be ejected from its current position.

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.

The British Medical Journal- How did the Pfizer vaccine get US-FDA approval in less than two years?:
-The U.S. Food and Drug Administration fully approved the first COVID-19 vaccine on Monday. Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which will be marketed as Comirnaty, is now available for people over 16 without emergency use authorization (EUA).
-Kim Witczak, a drug safety advocate who serves as a consumer representative on the FDA’s Psychopharmacologic Drugs Advisory Committee, said the decision removed an important mechanism (a data review meeting) for scrutinizing the data.
-Witczak is one of the more than 30 signatories of a citizen petition calling on the FDA to refrain from fully approving any covid-19 vaccine this year to gather more data. She warned that without a meeting “we have no idea what the data looks like.”
“It is already concerning that full approval is being based on 6 months’ worth of data despite the clinical trials designed for two years,” she said.

Brits with EU partners warned over future problems returning to the UK: While most Brits living abroad have managed to secure their residency rights since Brexit, they could face a whole different set of problems if they ever want to return to the UK and take their spouse or partner with them. Despite assurances given by the British government, the citizens’ rights campaign group British in Europe is warning that it is already seeing problems with the system, despite the deadline still being six months away.
Since the end of the Brexit transition period, EU nationals who want to move to the UK face a tough immigration process which has strict requirements including a minimum level of English and financial requirements. Simply being married or in a civil partnership with a UK national does not remove these obligations.
