The new lava stream on La Palma has reached a different part of the ocean: This stream, say the experts, is flowing down the mountain of La Laguna at a speed of approximately 1.3 kilometres per hour. Having already passed La Laguna, this new front advanced between the banana trees on Friday 15 with a height of about 7 metres.
In addition to that, a new eruptive mouth that emerged yesterday, Friday 15, located about 300 metres southeast of the base of the main cone, though it has calmed down today, and is expelling only ash.

Moroccan tv broadcasts interfere with Digital Television signals in Andalucia: Being able to watch any Spanish national channels that are broadcast through DTT (Digital Terrestrial Television) has become a luxury for many homes in the coastal region. The annoying interference has caused havoc over recent weeks to the point it is now affecting areas from Vélez-Málaga right down to the coast of Marbella.

British Youngsters Can Apply for a Free EU Rail Travel Ticket Until October 26, for the Last Time Ever: British youngsters born between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2003, are eligible to apply for a free travel rail pass given by the European Commission as a part of the latter’s DiscoverEU initiative.
This is the very last time that British 18 to 20-year-olds will be eligible to apply for such a pass due to Brexit.
The beneficiaries will be able to travel throughout Europe for up to 30 days from March 2022, which is the European Year of Youth, to February 2023.
Normally, only 18-year-olds are permitted to apply. However, since last year’s round was postponed due to COVID-19, this year, 19-year-olds and 20-year-olds were also permitted to apply.

German supermarkets can now REFUSE service to unvaccinated customers: The health pass entry rules allow all shops to bring in the so-called 2G rule – where premises can choose to deny entry to those who are not vaccinated (‘geimpft’ in German) or who have recovered (‘genesen’) from the virus.
Bringing in the 2G rule – which has been allowed in roughly half of German states for the service sector – lets shops drop mask-wearing rules along with those mandating social distancing.

Melbourne to ease world’s longest Covid-19 lockdown: Melbourne, which has spent more time under Covid-19 lockdowns than any other city in the world, is set to lift its stay-at-home orders this week, officials said on Sunday.
By Friday, when some curbs will be lifted, the Australian city of 5 million people will have been under six lockdowns totalling 262 days, or nearly nine months, since March 2020.
Australian and other media say this is the longest in the world, exceeding a 234-day lockdown in Buenos Aires.
While coronavirus cases keep rising in Victoria state, of which Melbourne is the capital, the state’s double-vaccination rate is set to reach 70 percent this week, allowing for the ease in restrictions.
