MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin
We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing.
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
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. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help
-slow down ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate blemishes.
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.

Covid Malaga- The rate Covid rises nearly 20 cases in a week in Malaga, other numbers not encouraging (but we’re still far better off than most of Europe): {Translation} November 19, 2021 – 14:13
-This Friday the cumulative incidence (AI) in the province of Malaga has risen 5 cases to 74 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. This represents an increase of 18 points compared to the record of Friday last week, so the week closes almost 20 cases above. In the capital, the rate stands at 78.5 cases; so the weekly increase is half a point higher than in the province as a whole.
-The number of infections is already close to two hundred per day, in its continuous increase. This Friday there are 171 new positives detected by diagnostic tests of active infection (PDIA) that the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Government has notified in its daily balance. It is the Andalusian province with the most reported infections, closely followed by Seville (160), with almost a hundred new positives more than the next in the statistics (Huelva, 81).
-Despite the fact that the incidence and the number of infections have been increasing, this Friday there are no deaths in the province, so the statistics still reflect 2,003 deaths since the first for this reason occurred in March 2020.
-However, as far as healthcare pressure is concerned, the data are bittersweet. On the one hand, Malaga is still by far the province with the highest number of Covid patients admitted to its healthcare centers. One out of every three bedridden patients in Andalusia is in this province. This Friday six more patients have been admitted to hospitals in Malaga with coronavirus, despite this the number of occupied beds has been reduced by five units, to 69 occupied of the 204 in the whole community.
-Regarding the Intensive Care Units (ICU), the figures are more discouraging, 17 patients remain under this care in Malaga, almost half of the 40 registered in Andalusia. In addition, despite there being no new direct admissions to the ICU, there are two more ICU beds occupied in the province. There are more ICU patients in Malaga than total admissions in Huelva (14) and Cadiz (7) and the figure is close to the total number of bedridden in Almeria (19), Cordoba (20), Granada (21), Jaen (25) and Seville (29).

Covid Axarquia- The Axarquia has notified this week 67 cases of COVID-19, the highest number since the end of September: {Translation, summary} Nov 19, 2021
-Reported this Friday, November 19, 15 new infected by coronavirus in the Axarquia in the last 24 hours, according to data from the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia (IECA). It is the highest figure of the whole week, after the 11 cases of yesterday Thursday, the 14 of Wednesday, the 13 of Tuesday and the 14 of Monday. In total, 67 infections have been confirmed this week, which is an increase with respect to the 40 positives detected last week and the 45 of two weeks ago. This is the highest figure since the week of September 20-24, when 82 infections were recorded during that period.
-The positive note continues to be that one more day there are no deaths in the region because of the virus, while this Friday have been added to 12 other people recovered from the disease.
-With regard to new positives in the last 24 hours, have been reported: 7 in Rincon de la Victoria; 2 in Nerja and Periana; and 1 in Velez-Malaga, Torrox, Benamocarra and Macharaviaya.
-As for the persons who have overcome the disease, the following have been reported: 5 in Vélez-Málaga; 3 in Frigiliana; and 1 in Rincón de la Victoria, Nerja, Torrox and Almáchar.
-The incidence in the Axarquia Health District (which includes Casabermeja) is at 44.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 1.7 points less than yesterday Thursday (45.8) and 3 points above a week ago (41.1). For its part, in the Health District of Malaga (to which belong Rincon de la Victoria, Macharaviaya, Moclinejo and Totalan, in addition to Malaga capital and Almogia) the incidence is 76.6 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, 7.3 points more than Thursday (69.3) and 19.9 points above a week ago (56.7).

New lava overflow in the La Palma volcano: Itahiza Domínguez, a seismologist at the National Geographic Institute (IGN), reports a new lava overflow in the volcano of La Palma in the afternoon of this Friday. On social networks, Domínguez has posted a video accompanied by an explanatory text indicating that the overflow has occurred in the middle mouth of the volcano, where there is a lava lake.

Spanish Politics- Propaganda at Work on Social Media- The Twitter bot network supporting Spain’s Socialist Party and insulting journalists: During the first 16 days of November, around 20 or so coordinated Twitter accounts described Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez as “handsome” 100 times and “gorgeous” another 39 times. It’s a curious anecdote, and may have gone unnoticed had the same accounts not compulsively insulted the leader of Spain’s main opposition Popular Party (PP), Pablo Casado, on the same social network. “Corrupt,” “miserable,” “you’re disgusting,” were the comments posted under the conservative politician’s tweets more than 400 times in the last 10 weeks.
Also targeted by this clutch of accounts were journalists covering the Socialist Party (PSOE), which is led by Sánchez, or the coalition government, which is run by the latter party along with junior partner Unidas Podemos. “You have fewer sources in the PSOE than I have in the KGB,” or “salmon face” were a few of the comments aimed at reporters.
The repeated phrases, spelling errors, patterns in terms of the time of publication and the tool used to post the tweets are all clear evidence of coordination. The closure of the accounts by Twitter, after EL PAÍS raised the alarm, is the confirmation.

Seven Dutch tourists escape from quarantine: The group of nine were travelling through Extremadura on Tuesday, November 16, when some of them felt sick and stopped in Navas del Madroño, a town halfway between the regional capital, Cáceres, and the border with Portugal. They had a test for the Covid-19 virus which confirmed their contagion, local councillor Denis Talavera told Extremadura TV.
They were all ordered to isolate in the hotel as per protocol. But when health officials visited the hotel on Wednesday, seven of the Dutch tourists had managed to escape from quarantine
The head of health in Extremadura, Jose Maria Vergeles, announced that international health authorities had been alerted because “this represents a problem for public health”. Full article:


First fixed radars installed on Malaga’s 30km/h roads: As confirmed by Malaga City Council, they have already started the installation of the network of fixed radars in the city. They will be deployed along the main 50km of arteries around the city, to control that drivers do not exceed 30 km/h. Two of these units are already in place, but are not yet operational. Both are located on Avenida Juan Sebastian Elcano. One is next to the Hotel Elcano, and the other is installed near the old Bobby Logan nightclub. They both point in the direction of the city centre. More of these boxes are in line to be fixed in place around the city.
Adding to these two new fixed radars, the Malaga Local Police have been supplied with two new portable devices. Already in the city, there are fixed kinemometers installed in Calles Pacifico and Andalucia, plus on Avenidas Calle Valle-Inclan, and Pintor Sorolla. Photo:Instagram

Pretzel Logic? Malaga to avoid Christmas light crowds by leaving show times unannounced: The lights will be switched on on 26 November at 7pm. The city council announced this Thursday that the Christmas lighting on Calle Larios will include music and light shows but without a previously announced timetable. “The schedule for the shows is not going to be announced, but people will be able to come from seven to ten,” said Porras, who justified this measure by saying that it avoids large crowds of people gathering.
Full article: https://www.surinenglish.com/malaga/malaga-city/malaga-avoid-larios-20211119115734-nt.html
(Seems to me this invites larger crowds as people gather waiting for shows. If people knew the times of the shows, they wouldn’t need to hang around in a crowd waiting. -Ed.)


UK Adds Booster Shots to NHS COVID Pass, Making It Easier for Millions of Britons to Travel to EU: Millions of British nationals wishing to travel to the European Union Member States no longer have to fear that they may encounter problems throughout their trip due to the non-inclusion of their third COVID-19 booster shot in their NHS Covid Pass.
The UK Department of Health and Social Care has announced on Friday, November 19, that starting from the same date, the third dose will be included in the NHS COVID Pass.

Austria infuriates many with manditory vax and full lockdown as Germany warns it may follow suit: Austria will become the first country in western Europe to reimpose a full COVID-19 lockdown, it said on Friday as neighbouring Germany warned it may follow suit, sending shivers through financial markets worried about the economic fallout.
Austria said it in addition to lockdown it would require the whole population to be vaccinated from Feb. 1. Both decisions infuriated many in a country where scepticism about state mandates affecting individual freedoms runs high.
Roughly two-thirds of those eligible in Austria are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the lowest rates in western Europe. Its infections are among the highest in Europe, with a seven-day incidence of 991 per 100,000 people.
“We have not succeeded in convincing enough people to get vaccinated,” Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg told a news conference, saying the lockdown would start on Monday and the requirement to be vaccinated on Feb. 1.

COVID-19 Situation Worsens in Europe as Another Wave of Virus Hits the Continent: Due to another COVID-19 wave, which has hit the European continent, the EU Health Agency has advised that everyone refrains from travelling to the majority of the EU Member States.
According to the latest update of maps published in support of the Council Recommendation, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has shown that most countries are dealing with increased infection cases.
Therefore, everyone, especially unvaccinated and unrecovered travellers, have been highly advised not to take any non-essential trips to or from areas that are currently part of the red or dark red list.

Kyle Rittenhouse found not guilty of all charges in Wisconsin murder trial: A jury acquitted teenager Kyle Rittenhouse on Friday of murder in the fatal shooting of two men during racial justice protests in a decision that ignited fierce debate about gun rights and the boundaries of self defense in the United States.
The jury found Rittenhouse, 18, not guilty on all charges: two counts of homicide, one count of attempted homicide for wounding a third man, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety in protests marred by arson, rioting and looting on Aug. 25, 2020 in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Why the Covid-19 vaccines do not stop the virus from circulating:
Covid-19 vaccines prevent hospitalizations and death from the disease in more than 90% of cases, but they do not stop the transmission of the virus. That’s why cases among the vaccinated are to be expected: a person who has been fully immunized can still contract SARS-CoV-2 and spread it to others, even if they too are vaccinated.
In Spain, contagions have been rising despite the fact that 79% of the population is fully vaccinated against Covid-19. According to the latest Health Ministry report, released Thursday evening, the 14-day incidence rate has jumped to 104 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, up eight points since Wednesday.

Windows 11 Users Complain of Slow Performance:
-There’s good news ahead for Windows 11 users, especially if the upgrade has left you with a sluggish system. Microsoft is promising that fixes and updates are on the way next year that will improve the performance of the operating system, which has received numerous complaints from Windows fans.
-“Performance will be an area of focus for us in 2022,” Microsoft’s Windows developer team wrote in a Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) post as reported by TechRadar, noting that improving the responsiveness of Windows is a priority for the company.
-Though stuttering performance may be an embarrassing issue for Microsoft’s latest operating system, there are other issues affecting Windows 11 as well. Memory leaks, compatibility issues, lack of customization options, and a jarring look with old UI elements mixed with Windows 11’s latest experience round out some of the top complaints we’ve heard about the OS.
-Microsoft also made headlines ahead of Windows 11’s rollout with its decision to limit upgrade eligibility to newer hardware. If you’re on the fence about upgrading to Windows 11, provided your machine is compatible with the latest operating system, you’ll need to weigh your options at this time, especially given the performance-plaguing bugs still out there.

IBM unveils the Eagle, the quantum processor set to revolutionize computing: The development of quantum computing is set to revolutionize computing as we know it, by exponentially increasing processing power. The latest advance in the field has come from IBM, which unveiled the Eagle processor this week. Boasting 127 qubits (quantum bits) of quantum power, it doubles the power of China’s Zuchongzhi processor, previously the world’s most advanced.
-How powerful is that? IBM’s Eagle processor has the capacity to smash the record set by the Zuchonhzhi processor created by engineers at China’s University of Science and Technology and Tsinghua University in Beijing, which managed in three minutes to solve a problem of random number generation that would have taken other supercomputers 600 million years. The IBM processor is “a key milestone on the path towards practical quantum computation,” said Zaira Nazario, technical manager of Quantum Computing Theory and Applications at the US company, in a video call.
