CHANGES FOR THE NEW YEAR

Dear Readers, I must cut back on unnecessary tasks as it adds hours to my work some days. Everyone needs to follow the rules, as stated at the top of every issue!
Rules page: https://digamextra.com/about
Submissions Info: To avoid having your submissions returned for correction you MUST follow these rules from the rules page.
-Everyone must sign their submissions with a name and location (nearest town). The bottom of every post should look like this: Naythan/Torrox Costa. Do not write an “area”, like “Nerja area”. Just pick the nearest town and always use that. You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup, but your location is required in any case.
-I cannot post pics you copy from the internet unless you include a photo credit with a link to the source. Doing so is against copyright laws. If you include a copyright protected pic without the credit I will simply not post that pic. I will not make corrections or changes to any such submissions after they are posted with the infringing pic removed.
YOUR COOPERATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. -Ed.

SPAIN

What happens to the temporary contracts already signed that the new  labor reform eliminates?: The coalition government closed 2021 with the approval of the labor reform. The norm, still pending validation by Parliament, aims to reduce the high figures for temporary work in Spain and eliminates temporary contracts in force so far (such as the many work and service contracts) and basically creates two new modalities. But the old temporary contracts do not decay instantly with the approval of the legislation in a Royal Decree-Law approved on December 28. The Executive has given three months for the entry into force of the new contractual figures and has also granted a transition period for contracts signed before that date.

Football News- Arsenal dumped out of FA Cup by Nottingham Forest: Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said his side were not good enough as their hopes of winning a record-extending 15th FA Cup were sunk at the first hurdle by a 1-0 defeat. Arsenal were lacklustre and could have few complaints against a well-organised Forest side who earned themselves a Midlands derby against Leicester City in round four.

Tennis News- Djokovic opens a dramatic court battle to stay in Australia:
-Detained tennis superstar Novak Djokovic gets his day in court Monday, with an Australian judge poised to hear his make-or-break bid to avoid deportation and be allowed to challenge for a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam title.
-The unvaccinated Serb had his visa revoked on arrival to Australia last week and he has spent the last four nights at a notorious Melbourne immigration detention facility.
-The 34-year-old’s lawyers will tell the court he should be allowed to remain in Australia because a recent second Covid infection made him exempt from vaccine entry requirements.
-Government lawyers reject that argument saying Djokovic failed to meet the medical criteria as his illness was not “acute,” according to a filing late Sunday.
-They will seek to have his appeal dismissed with costs, paving the way for his deportation as soon as Monday evening. Full article: https://www.france24.com/en/live-news/20220109-djokovic-opens-dramatic-court-battle-to-stay-in-australia-1

 

Tennis News- Nadal lifts first 2022 title in Melbourne, breaks Roger Federer record: Rafael Nadal has recovered and now bounced back from his pre-Australian Open bout of Covid-19 to win the Melbourne Summer Set warm-up event, surpassing an impressive Roger Federer feat in the process.
The 35-year-old proved too good for impressive French qualifier Maxime Cressy in a hard-fought 7-6 (8-6) 6-3 contest, winning his first event in Australia since his 2009 grand slam epic against Federer.
Crucially, the tournament win made it 19 seasons in a row for Nadal in which he has won at least one ATP Tour event – surpassing previous record holders Federer and American great Andre Agassi.
