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

EU Health Agency Says It’s Less Safe to Travel to Germany & Sweden Now: The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), which is the EU agency responsible for strengthening Europe’s defences against infectious diseases, says that it is becoming less safe to travel to Germany and Sweden due to the Coronavirus infection rates in these two countries.
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
