The price of electricity is still unbridled this Monday- it breaks a new record by reaching 154 euros: {Translation}
-The average price of electricity in the wholesale market or ‘pool’ will stand tomorrow Monday at 154.16 euros per megawatt / hour (MWh), which is the highest price in the history of Spain, above the record that beat last Friday, at 152.32 euros.
-The price of the ‘pool’ will be paid tomorrow ten euros more expensive than today (144.18), which has been the most expensive Sunday since records have been kept, and almost four times more than on the same Monday in 2020, when it was paid at 43.49 euros.
-By time slots, the maximum will reach 170 euros between 21.00 and 22.00 hours and the minimum at 125 euros from 05.00 to 06.00 and from 06.00 to 07.00.
-In Spain, the wholesale price has a weight of around 24% in the electricity bill of the more than 10 million households that use the regulated tariff or Voluntary Price for Small Consumers (PVPC).
-The Council of Ministers is expected to approve on Tuesday a new package of measures to cushion the rise in the price of electricity in the wholesale market, which could include a new tax cut, the revision of the regulated tariff or PVPC so that it is not so exposed to the fluctuations of the wholesale market and to force the large electricity companies to auction energy between retailers and industrialists.
-Meanwhile, the PP has started this weekend in Madrid its leaflet distribution campaign with the measures it proposes to reduce the electricity bill by 20%: keep VAT at 10%, abolish the tax on the value of electricity production, use the more than 2,000 million of CO2 emission rights and include non-energy costs in the General State Budget.

Two fires meet in Sierra Bermeja creating a new front and forcing the evacuation of four more villages: Updated: 12 September 2021,16:27
Residents in Alpandeire, Júzcar, Faraján and Pujerra join those of Jubrique and Genalguacil in being ordered to leave their homes as a precaution.
The number of people evacuated due to the fire is likely to be over 3,000 with the population of the six villages added to the 1,620 people already told to leave their homes in Estepona and Benahavís.
The fire officer explained that the four areas of activity last night (Saturday, 11 September) were going “reasonably well” and that today they hoped that they would be totally stabilised by this Sunday night, but everything changed early on Sunday morning when the new fie broke out.

Benamargosa will cut water supply from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. because of the drought: {Translation}
-The town council warns that water should be used for domestic needs and that the Local Police will be attentive to any infraction. Its mayor, Salvador Arcas, has just reported on the water cut for 8 hours a day, specifically from 11 at night until 7 in the morning.
This comes to us from the consistory of Benamargosa:
“That due to the pressing drought we are suffering, coupled with the summer season in which we find ourselves and the absence of rainfall, has resulted in a rapid decline in resources and an increasing shortage of water for domestic supply of the population.
It is for this reason that all the neighbors are informed that water cuts will be carried out from 23:00 hours until 07:00 hours in the morning, as long as the current situation is not regularized.
To this effect, I have to remind you that water should be used basically to meet the primary domestic needs and in no case for other uses other than those contracted such as agricultural hazards, home covers, car washing, etc ….
In order to avoid the improper use of the water supply by the population, I give instructions to the Local Police to proceed to carry out inspection work, in order to verify that it is used in accordance with the current and applicable law, incurring in serious irresponsibilities those who make fraudulent use of this.
This is made public for general compliance and knowledge for the good of the population”. Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiaplus.es/benamargosa-cortara-el-sumistro-de-agua-de-11-de-la-noche-a-7-de-la-manana-por-la-sequia/


UK ditches plans for vaccine passports at crowded venues: Authorities in Britain have decided not to require vaccine passports for entry into nightclubs and other crowded events in England, Britain’s health secretary said Sunday, reversing course amid opposition from some of the Conservative government’s supporters in Parliament.
Health Minister Sajid Javid said the government has shelved the idea of vaccine passports for now but could reconsider the decision if COVID-19 cases rise exponentially once again.

Tennis News- How Emma Raducanu of Great Britain, 18-Year-Old US Open Winner, Made Tennis History: At only 18 years old, she accomplished a feat on Saturday that very few could have predicted, winning the U.S. Open title. Representing the United Kingdom, Raducanu bested 19-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandez for the win with a final score of 6-4, 6-3, in a final that was already an anomaly as the first time it’s been exclusively teens squaring off in the final in more than 20 years.
Although Raducanu has dual citizenship in Canada and the U.K., her monumental win is a big deal for Britain in particular; she’s the first female British player to win a Grand Slam event in 44 years. The last was Virginia Wade, who won Wimbledon in 1977. Full article: https://www.nepm.org/post/how-emma-raducanu-18-year-old-us-open-winner-made-tennis-history#stream/0

They are stunning little ginger girls with lovely patterns completely different from each other with lovely yellow eyes and beautiful personalities. They would love a family of their own. They both love chilling in cardboard boxes and playing games with each other. They will make lovely and loving pets. They have the same character as their mother who is a sweet, tame little cat which makes wonder if she was a pet who has been dumped.
