– The Cuarteto Diotima, resident ensemble of the festival and regular guest at the world’s greatest concert halls, will offer, on Tuesday 27th, at the Teatro Calderón, their interpretation of two great works of the quartet repertoire -Webern and Schumann- and a masterpiece of our times, Arcadiana by Thomas Adès.

Frigiliana back to the middle ages with the Festival 3 Cultures: {Translation}
– Like every last weekend in August – except for the pandemic incursion – Frigiliana goes back to the Middle Ages through the Festival 3 Culturas. An event that seeks to bring Muslim, Christian and Sephardic customs and customs to the present, as well as to pay homage to the legacy that all of them left in the town.
– The meeting, therefore, is claimed as one of the most important celebrations of the province, since it is a “faithful claim and an attractive pole” of visitors, in the words of the deputy of Culture, Victor Gonzalez.
– From 25 to 28 August, the municipality will host a wide range of events. These include: craft markets, parades, conferences, a tapas route, cinema sessions, theatrical performances, storytelling service… And, of course, Moorish, Mudejar and batting routes.
The activities, as explained by the Councillor for Culture of the municipality, Carmen Cerezo, will take place throughout the day in the space that separates the Plaza de la Iglesia from the Parque de Andalucía.
– The event will also be enlivened with 10 live music concerts by local artists, such as Eduardo López, and national artists, such as La Mari de Chambao, who will return to the stage in Frygillia [sic] 14 years after being chosen to open the festival. “The only thing the visitor has to do is come and enjoy, the rest is up to us”, Cerezo reiterated.

Some Airlines Are Illegally Preventing Some EU Citizens From Travelling to UK: The Independent Monitoring Authority (IMA), a watchdog that monitors the rights of EU and Schengen Area citizens post-Brexit, has sent a letter to all carriers flying travellers from the EU to the UK, urging them to respect the Home Office’s guidance in this regard. In its letter, the IMA claims that they have received several complaints by EU and Schengen Area citizens protected by the EU Withdrawal Agreement and EEA/EFTA Separation Agreement, that carriers are asking them to provide proof of status in the UK, and prevented them from boarding their flights with only an ID card.

Farmers in the Netherlands block entire highways as mass protests continue: Farmers in the Netherlands are continuing their mass protests, blocking entire highways with manure and by setting hay on fire, as reported on Wednesday, July 27.
– The mass farmers protests seen in the Netherlands are due to their outrage over new government regulations that will force them to reduce their nitrogen fertiliser compounds, leading to a reduced number of their livestock, ultimately causing bankruptcy in family-owned businesses.
– The farmers protests have since been seen in Poland, Italy, and Spain, after strikes in the Netherlands have led to many supermarkets running out of food, as the anti-government movement continues.

Ryanair cabin crew strikes in Spain extended until 7 January: The USO and Sitcpla unions announced on Wednesday, 27 July, that they are extending the strike days, which began in July, until 7 January. The new strike call, for 24-hour stoppages, Monday to Thursday, weekly, will begin on 8 August.
– “Given that Ryanair has not shown the slightest attempt at rapprochement with the unions but, on the contrary, has publicly stated its refusal to engage in any dialogue with the elected representatives of its crew members, USO and Sitcpla have been forced to continue the strike and call new dates, after listening to the workers”, union officials said.

These 28 Android Apps with 10 Million Downloads from the Play Store Contain Malware: As many as 30 malicious Android apps with cumulative downloads of nearly 10 million have been found on the Google Play Store distributing adware. “All of them were built into various programs, including image-editing software, virtual keyboards, system tools and utilities, calling apps, wallpaper collection apps, and others,” Dr.Web said in a Tuesday write-up.
While masquerading as innocuous apps, their primary goal is to request permissions to show windows over other apps and run in the background in order to serve intrusive ads. If you have any of these apps installed, uninstall them and then run a malware scan to clean up any leftover malware files.
