CANCELLED- Bonnie Tyler’s concert in Salobreña: Bonnie Tyler’s concert that was due to take place last evening, Friday, August 13, in the Los Trances Municipal Sports Centre in Salobreñas, Granada, has been postponed. The organisers have reportedly said they plan to reschedule the concert date in Granada province, but anybody wishing for a refund can get their ticket money returned.
Lorena Pal, the interpreter who is accompanying the Welsh singing star on this tour, went on stage – with the public already starting to enter the venue – to announce that Ms Tyler had been feeling unwell since around 12 midday, with symptoms compatible to Covid-19, and although she had started to feel better as the day progressed, at dinner time she felt worse again and had to call for a doctor.

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.

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.

Andalusia reduces the fifth Covid wave for the tenth day but has 14 deaths: {Translation, summary} Updated: 13/08/2021, 20:48
-Andalusia has 3,687 cases of Covid-19 on Friday, almost the same figure as that recorded yesterday, Thursday. But, even more important than this stabilisation today is that the region has almost 700 fewer infections than on the same day last week.
-The cumulative incidence also continues to fall for the tenth consecutive day. Today it dropped 17 points from 527.4 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants to 510.4. After one week there is also a decrease: from 214.6 to 206.7.
-There is also a slight decrease in the number of deaths, which this Friday are 14. This is the same as last Friday.
-In hospitals, meanwhile, the trend seems to have clearly changed. On Thursday – a day on which the number of people admitted to hospital tends to rise when the waves stabilise or rise – the number of patients has fallen. There are 24 less this Friday than yesterday, so that in the community there are 1,410 admitted for Covid-19, of which 248 are in the ICU (one less than yesterday).

Police Visit Pirate IPTV Suppliers’ Homes to Serve Cease-and-Desist Notices: Cheap access to Premier League football is one of the primary drivers for pirate IPTV uptake in the UK.
According to an announcement from anti-piracy company the Federation Against Copyright Theft, during the past week police units targeted several suspected suppliers of pirate IPTV services around the UK. FACT investigators were reportedly in attendance when the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit, West Yorkshire Police, and Dyfed-Powys Police delivered cease-and-desist notices to people’s homes.
All of the individuals served with a cease-and-desist notice over the past week are reportedly lower-level players in the pirate IPTV world. No specific details have been made available but it seems more than likely these were people involved in the resale of pirate IPTV subscriptions, otherwise known as resellers.

TUI cancels more flights and holidays until October including Spain, Turkey and US: TUI assures customers that if their holiday has been cancelled by the airline, they will be contacted to discuss their options.
