Hauliers vote against a new strike for the time being: The result of the vote by associations of haulage firms linked to the group (Plataforma para la Defensa del Sector del Transporte) that called the strike last March, was 41 per cent in favour and 45 per cent against, with 14% abstentions.
Hauliers, therefore, favour further negotiations with the government, before potentially throwing part of the distribution sector into turmoil as they did in March. They are now waiting for the government to respond to their requests to apply the food chain law which prevents them working at a loss, which is the sector’s greatest problem.

Infoca works on a fire in Lanjarón: {Translation} Infoca firefighters are working on Monday to extinguish a fire that broke out in the municipality of Lanjarón (Granada) at around 11.00 a.m. and for which two aerial vehicles were initially used, which have now been withdrawn from the area, where work continues with ground vehicles. Initially, two ground loading aircraft, a transport and extinguishing helicopter, a fire-fighting vehicle, an operations technician, an environmental agent and two groups of forest firefighters were deployed to the area. The favourable evolution of the fire has now allowed the withdrawal of the aerial means and at present nine forest firefighters, a fire engine and an environmental agent are working on the ground.

NATO to grow high-readiness forces to 300,000, ‘biggest overhaul’ since Cold War: In the largest military buildup since the Cold War, NATO plans to boost its high-readiness forces to 300,000 in response to Russia’s war in Ukraine. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg made the announcement Monday, one day before U.S. President Joe Biden heads to a NATO summit in Madrid.
– The NATO summit will be “transformative, with many important decisions, including on a new strategic concept for a new security reality, a fundamental shift in NATO’s deterrence and defense, and support to Ukraine now and for the future,” Stoltenberg said Monday.
– The NATO chief also announced plans to shore up NATO’s eastern flank nearer Russia by boosting NATO’s quick-response forces by 650%. The force would grow from 40,000 to 300,000 as part of the “biggest overhaul of our collective defense and deterrence since the Cold War.” Photo: Paul Hanna/UPI.

Italy Data Protection Authority Warns Websites Against Use of Google Analytics:
– Following the footsteps of Austria and France, the Italian Data Protection Authority has become the latest regulator to find the use of Google Analytics to be non-compliant with E.U. data protection regulations.
– The Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali, in a press release published last week, called out a local web publisher for using the widely used analytics tool in a manner that allowed key bits of users’ personal data to be illegally transferred to the U.S. without necessary safeguards. This data includes interactions of users with the websites, the individual pages visited, IP addresses of the devices used to access the websites, browser specifics, details related to the device’s operating system, screen resolution, and the selected language, as well as the date and time of the visits.
– Earlier this month, the French data protection watchdog, the CNIL, issued updated guidance over the use of Google Analytics, reiterating the practice as illegal under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws and giving affected organizations a period of one month to comply.

Who can collect the new aid of 200 euros announced by the Spanish  Government?: This Monday the decree / law was approved to offer the aid of 200 euros to individuals with low income and assets. The measure was announced this Saturday and has the objective of alleviating the effects of the price increase caused by the energy crisis derived from the invasion of Ukraine.
– Those people who in 2021 had an income of less than 14,000 euros per year, and had assets of less than 43,196.40 euros per year, will be able to benefit from it. Income will be calculated per household, so the sum of the residents’ income must not exceed the established limits in the BOE.

BONEHEAD AWARD- The school where boys can wear skirts – but not shorts: Parents have hit out at new school uniform rules which mean that in hot weather boys can wear skirts – but not shorts. The changes in policy at Wymondham High Academy follow complaints from families that boys were being forced to wear trousers during the summer term, when temperatures can soar.
– The school agreed to review the regulations, but rather than permitting shorts it introduced a ‘gender neutral’ policy, permitting boys and girls to wear trousers or skirts – and neither to wear shorts. Jonathan Rockey, the school’s headteacher, defended the new policy as “something we are very proud of” and said it had involved consultation with families.
– The new uniform policy, triggered by the previous complaints, was introduced after more than 400 parents took part in a survey, with a large number calling for a ‘summer uniform’ to be introduced.
– However, the exercise to date produced has just two changes – allowing boys and girls to wear trousers or skirts, and requiring girls to wear ties as well as boys. Photo: Denise Bradley. Full article: https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/education/wymondham-high-academy-school-uniform-policy-9096714
