Regulating the temperature and switching off lights and shop windows, the first measures to come into force on Wednesday: {Translation in full} 8 Aug. (EUROPA PRESS)
– The Third Vice-President of the Government and Minister for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, has ruled out on Monday that she will modify or postpone the entry into force of the energy saving decree, whose first measures come into force this Wednesday, despite the request for its withdrawal by Andalusia, Castile and Leon, the Community of Madrid, Galicia and Murcia.
– Limiting the use of air conditioning to 27 degrees in summer and heating to 19 degrees in winter in public buildings, commercial spaces and department stores, transport infrastructures (airports, train and bus stations), cultural spaces and hotels, as well as turning off the lights in shop windows and public buildings that are unoccupied after 22.00 hours will be the first measures to come into force this Wednesday.
– This is included in the first package of energy saving and efficiency measures approved by the government to rapidly reduce energy consumption in order to comply with European commitments arising from the conflict in Ukraine. In the case of all these initiatives, they will be valid until 1 November 2023.
– Health and hospital centres, training centres (schools, universities and nurseries), hairdressing salons, laundries, gyms and means of transport (trains, planes, airports, ships, etc.) will be excluded from the obligation to limit the temperature, so that it does not fall below 27 degrees in summer or exceed 19 degrees in winter.
– Also exempted are those centres where exemptions are necessary due to the specificities of the sector, as well as, in the case of hotels, the rooms, which are privately regulated. The rest of the hotel (e.g. restaurants, cafeteria, common areas) would apply.
– In this way, the established temperature limits will apply to the interior of habitable establishments that are conditioned, located in buildings and premises for administrative use (including office floors or areas, general lobbies and areas for public use), commercial use (shops, supermarkets, department stores, shopping centres and similar) and cultural use (theatres, cinemas, auditoriums, congress centres, exhibition halls and similar), as well as in establishments for public shows and recreational activities, catering (bars, restaurants and cafeterias) and passenger transport (stations and airports).
– However, the Minister for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, Teresa Ribera, specified on Friday that bars and restaurants can limit the use of air conditioning to “around 25 degrees”, taking into account the recommendations of labour legislation, as opposed to the 27 degrees contemplated in the royal decree on energy saving and efficiency measures approved by the government.
– In this sense, she clarified that the 27 degrees will be applied “with flexibility” and gave as an example that discotheques, kitchens and gyms need a different temperature to other spaces such as a bookshop. “It is not possible to ask workers who are in conditions of significant physical exercise not to have the conditions that labour law guarantees with respect to the maximum and minimum temperatures,” Ribera said in statements to Onda Cero, reported by Europa Press.
– For this reason, shops and establishments will have to justify when they do not apply the temperature limit on the thermostat, a flexibility incorporated into the decree law to protect the occupational health rights of their workers.
– With regard to the switch-off of shop window lighting, the switch-off timetable from 22.00 hours will apply exclusively to shop window lighting and lighting in public buildings that are unoccupied at that time. It shall not apply to the ornamental lighting of monuments (unless they are public buildings which are unoccupied at that time).
– As regards the installation of signage, signs and displays- buildings to which the temperature limitation applies shall inform, by means of information signs or the use of displays, about energy-saving implementing measures relating to air temperature limits, as well as information on temperature and humidity (thermometers must be visible to building users), door opening, servicing and maintenance regimes. They may also provide information on other measures they are taking on a voluntary basis and the signs should be visible from the entrance or access to the buildings. The starting date of the measure is one month after the publication of the regulation in the Official State Gazette, i.e. 2 September, and it will be in force, in principle, until 1 November 2023.
– With regard to the obligation to have an adequate door locking system, it will apply to buildings and premises with access from the street, intended for the same uses as those to which the temperature limit would apply. In this measure, no exclusions are considered, unless the safety legislation applying to the building or premises prevents compliance with this obligation. The deadline for adaptation is 30 September and there is no deadline for compliance.
– Commercial spaces, public buildings, cultural spaces and hotels that fail to comply with the energy saving and efficiency plan approved by the government will face fines of up to 60,000 euros for minor offences, up to six million euros for serious offences and up to 100 million euros for very serious offences.
– Sources from the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism have explained to Europa Press that the penalties to be applied will be those set out in the Regulation on Thermal Installations in Buildings (RITE), in turn provided for in articles 30 to 38 of Law 21/1992, of 16 July, on Industry, on administrative offences.

The Government rules out withdrawing the energy saving decree and reproaches the PP for its “noise and lies”: “The decree is what it is” and “there will not be any type of postponement”. The Third Vice President and Minister of Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera, reiterated this Monday that the decree with energy saving measures approved by the Government last Monday will continue forward and will unfold its effects on Wednesday, August 10, as planned. The Popular Party has demanded this morning a withdrawal of the decree, something that Ribera has rejected.

Dissing Columbia- King Felipe VI “the only head of state who has remained seated before the sword of [Simón] Bolívar” during the inauguration ceremony of the new President of Colombia: In a video broadcast on social networks, you can see the Spanish monarch located next to the president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, following the arrival of the symbolic weapon with his eyes, but, unlike other guests, Felipe VI did not get up from his place. Nor did he applaud the act. As put in one tweet (@gener_usuga), “The King of Spain, the only one who remained seated when Bolívar’s sword reached the presidential possession. The same one with which the liberator fought the Spanish army more than 200 years ago.

The police will carry out searches at the Malaga Fair to look for syringes and avoid possible cases of chemical submission: {Translation, summary} 08 Aug, 2022 16:20
– The Police will once again set up the so-called Violet Points – information and assistance spaces for women – in different areas of the historic centre and Cortijo de Torres, with a special focus on combating the form of chemical submission that has recently emerged: injections.
– The action plan, part of the campaign ‘Malaga free of male violence’, will include measures to combat these aggressions such as searches “looking for needles or syringes” at the entrances, spot checking indiscriminate groups, and the implementation of metal detectors. In addition to this, there will be an increase in the number of plainclothes officers, the surveillance of a police drone, mainly in the area of the botellón, and the revision of the 36 cameras in the city centre, according to municipal sources.
– Additionally, the campaign ‘Malaga free of male violence’ will remain active 365 days a year and will be extended to all districts of Malaga. Once the Fair is over, a protocol of adhesions will be launched for all establishments so that, after online registration, they are prepared to prevent and intervene in possible cases of male violence.

Lorry with crane stolen in bungled attempt to steal cash machine from Nerja supermarket car park: Guardia Civil police officers are investigating the theft of a lory with a crane from a building materials company in Nerja which was used to steal a cash machine located in the car park of the town’s Lidl supermarket. The incident took place on Sunday evening, SUR has been able to confirm.
– The thieves allegedly first gained access to the warehouse of the company Hermanos Jimena, located next to the Rapto de Europa monument at the entrance to Nerja on the old N-340 road. After breaking the lock on the door, they drove the vehicle to the supermarket car park, where they used the truck to carry away the cash machine.

Bruce Springsteen Invents “Pre-Scalping” – Angers fans with latest tour’s ‘outrageous and exorbitant’ prices:
– Facing ticket costs from $200 to $5,000+ based on a computer algorithm that changes the ticket price according to demand, die-hard fans feel the working-class hero has abandoned his principles.
– Ron Lieber explains in a New York Times article about Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing system” for Springsteen’s concerts, “no scalpers were selling those tickets. Instead, a new definition of ‘face value’ had emerged, one that many fans had never encountered.” “Dynamic pricing” refers to a flexible sales strategy that updates and adapts prices to changing demand in real time.

Crew strike at Ryanair: 44 flights with delays in Malaga and Seville: {Translation} 08/08/2022 19:50h.
– The Irish airline Ryanair has suffered delays on 44 flights to or from Andalusian bases coinciding with the start of the new strike call for cabin crew (TCP). Nationally, its flights have been affected by ten cancellations and 233 delays.
– The flights affected by delays were 38 in Malaga and 6 in Seville. The cancellations at national level were between Barcelona and Milan, Menorca, Rome and London, return flights, as well as between Palma de Mallorca and Hamburg, also return flights.
– In terms of delays, the airports most affected were Palma de Mallorca, with 55 delays; Barcelona and Malaga, with 38; Alicante, with 24, and Madrid, with 23.
– Ryanair has indicated that the new strike call for Ryanair’s flight attendants, which began on Monday, will have a “minimal, if any, disruption” to the company’s operations.
– The airline said in a statement that it has recently reached an agreement with “the main Spanish union”, CC.OO. on wages, ‘rosters’ (four days on followed by three days off) and allowances for its Spanish cabin crew.
– In addition, it said recent strikes by USO and Sitcpla have had “little support and minimal effect” on Ryanair flights. Ryanair said it operates more than 3,000 flights a day and that less than 1 per cent have been affected by the strikes. It therefore predicted that disruption “will be minimal, if any, to scheduled operations in the coming months”.
– USO and Sitcpla, the unions representing Ryanair cabin crew, after consulting with workers, called a new strike at the airline from 8 August until 7 January 2023, both inclusive.
– The new strike consists of 24-hour days of work stoppages, Monday to Thursday, on a weekly basis. The unions pointed out that Ryanair has not shown “the slightest attempt at rapprochement” with them, but has publicly stated its refusal to engage in any dialogue with the elected representatives of its crew members.

‘Cacator cave malum’ (Defecator Beware Of Evil)- What collective latrines teach us about ancient Rome:
– They were spaces to share stories, jokes, and even a sponge attached to a stick that they used to clean themselves. “If you want to understand the culture, look at its bathrooms,” says the scholar Mary Beard.
– “If you want to understand the culture, look at its baths,” says Beard, sitting in a nearly intact latrine at Ostia Antica, one of Italy’s best-preserved ruins, reachable from Rome by commuter train. “In the center of Rome, according to an ancient guide, there were 144 latrines, although we do not know how many seats each one had,” continues the Cambridge-trained historian.
