Halloween Activities For Children- Torrox: {Translation, summary}
31st of October (Sunday), starting at 18.00 hrs in two different locations: the Plaza de la Constitución, Torrox, and Promenade of El Morche.
In both locations there will be storytelling with monsters and thematic proceedings as much theatrical as musical interactive with the small ones, that they may also conduct workshops, number of boxes of pumpkin for children between 2 and 6 years and books terrifying to those who are between 7 and 12 years. They could not miss animators with globloflexia and pintacaras, and there will be an area with inflatables.
The traditional division of sweets will be organized at the end of the party, around nine in the evening.
As a novelty this year, will be the search of a house, following the clues that will be revealed throughout the evening from the stage. Whoever finds it will get the prize of a large basket with products from Halloween. FB LINK

Covid Axarquia- Nerja, La Viñuela & Almáchar return to high risk after exceeding 150 incidence rate: {Translation} Updated: 22OCT21
-The Axarquia has notified a total of 43 COVID-19 infections this week, 7 of them this Friday, of which 23 correspond to the municipality of Nerja.
-Junta de Andalucía has informed this Friday, 22nd of October, of 7 new infected by coronavirus in the Axarquía in the last 24 hours, The cases remain stable after the 7 of yesterday Thursday, the 5 of Wednesday, the 7 of Tuesday and the 17 of Monday, although in this last case they correspond to the whole weekend.
-In total, 43 infections have been confirmed this week, a figure higher than the 30 positives detected last week and the 29 a fortnight ago. This rise is mainly due to the increase in the number of cases in the municipality of Nerja, where 23 infections have been recorded this week. These figures have led to the town once again being at high risk, with an incidence rate of 156.1 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. La Viñuela (194.6) and Almáchar (165.1) are also in this situation. The three municipalities are the only ones in the region with an incidence above 100 cases.
-Up to 21 localities in La Axarquía have not registered cases of coronavirus in at least the last two weeks. These are Alfarnate, Alfarnatejo, Algarrobo, Árchez, Benamargosa, Canillas de Aceituno, Canillas de Albaida, Comares, Cómpeta, Cútar, El Borge, Frigiliana, Iznate, Macharaviaya, Moclinejo, Periana, Riogordo, Salares, Sayalonga, Sedella and Totalán.
-Fortunately, one more day there are no deaths by the virus in the region, so that Axarquia already has 23 days without deaths by COVID-19 (since 29 September). In addition, this Friday 7 people have been reported recovered from the disease.
-Regarding the new positives in the last 24 hours, 3 have been reported in Rincón de la Victoria and Nerja; and 1 in Arenas.
-As for people who have recovered from the disease, the following have been reported: 3 in Vélez-Málaga and Torrox; and 1 in Sayalonga.
-The incidence in the Axarquia Health District (which includes Casabermeja) is 34.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 0.6 points higher than yesterday Thursday (33.5) and 5.9 points higher than a week ago (28.2). Meanwhile, in the Malaga Health District (to which Rincón de la Victoria, Macharaviaya, Moclinejo and Totalán belong, as well as Malaga city and Almogía) the incidence is 34.6 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 1.7 points less than on Thursday (36.3) and 1.9 points lower than a week ago (36.5).

Spanish government to reimburse all fines handed out during first state of alarm: The Interior Ministry said that police had meted out 1.1 million fines to citizens who defied the stay-at-home order and other restrictions, although not all of them had been immediately paid.
All Spanish citizens who paid fines during a nearly three-month state of emergency declared last yea will be remunerated, the country’s Ministry of Territorial Affairs said on Friday.
The move follows a ruling by Spain’s top court earlier this year that declared as unconstitutional the country’s first state of emergency, which sent all but essential citizens to their homes and paralyzed much of the economy between March 14 and June 21.

Heads Up To Facebook Group Admins- Facebook announces new censorship for Groups- Now You’re the Censor!:
Facebook seems to be attempting to respond to the most recent round of criticism against it and deflect from it by “doing more” with an announcement that new censorship measures are on its way.
This time they concern groups, whose members’ posts will be demoted if Facebook determines that they had violated its guidelines in other places on the giant network – meaning that their group-posted content can be in line with Facebook’s rules, without having broken any, and it will still get demoted because of posts made outside the group! The downranking will apply to all content posted by these users in a group.
The intent is to isolate group members from their peers in the same community as punishment for what Facebook determines were transgressions committed elsewhere.
Another move that Facebook is making is to essentially co-opt group admins and moderators as unpaid content moderators.
They will now have at their disposal a tool called Flagged by Facebook which admins will be able to use to censor group members before Facebook (FB will have  already flagged the content for your review and removal) removes them and gives your group a slap those misbehaving with “strikes.”
With Flagged by Facebook, admins will be able to see the flagged content and try to react to censor it before FB does, and will be incentivized to do so because strikes received by groups members affect the status of the group itself. So now you are the censor!
