NOTICE! 
Submissions for posting in sections below
must include this info or they will be returned !!!
Sender's First Name / Nearest Town 

Note: You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup,
but your location is required in any case. If selling an item from a location different from where you reside, you must include both.
For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

ANDALUCIA

Paying Fares On Public Transport Possible Soon, With Phone App –  Starting Monday In Rincón de la Victoria: {Translation, summary}
– The Regional Minister for Development, Territorial Planning and Housing, Marifrán Carazo, has announced the implementation of the virtual public transport card in Andalusia, which will allow secure payment by mobile phone and which will be launched on Monday 26 September in Rincón de la Victoria.
– The Councillor pointed out that the first experience of the virtual card will be carried out in the buses of Rincón de la Victoria to “later be extended to the rest of the lines of the Malaga Consortium and then to the rest of Andalusia”. The Andalusian Regional Government has already allocated 1.6 million euros from European Next Generation funds for its implementation throughout the autonomous region.
– The virtual card can be used by those who have a mobile phone with an Android 6.0 or higher system and NFC chip and install the Consorcio Málaga app on their terminal. This application includes, in addition to payment facilities, advantages such as the possibility of topping up or checking the number of journeys paid for. Moreover, it does not require the payment of annual licences per card and can work offline. The councillor highlighted among its advantages that “the card immediately updates the fare systems, so that, for example, the discounts currently in force will be applied”.

‘Not a bluff’ – Putin mobilizes reservists, threatens West with nuclear weapons:
– Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered that as many as 300,000 reservists be called up to fight in Ukraine and threatened to use nuclear weapons against the West, stressing that his words were “not a bluff.” Putin said he has already signed the decree for partial mobilization, which is due to start on Wednesday.
– In a national address that was televised Wednesday morning, Putin warned that he would use all the means available to protect Russia’s territory, in what appeared to be a veiled reference to the country’s nuclear arsenal. “When the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal,” Putin said, adding, “It’s not a bluff.”
– Putin accused the West of engaging in “nuclear blackmail” and noted “statements of some high-ranking representatives of the leading NATO states about the possibility of using nuclear weapons of mass destruction against Russia.” He didn’t identify who had made such comments.

SPACE

New Webb Image Captures Clearest View of Neptune’s Rings in Decades:
– NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows off its capabilities closer to home with its first image of Neptune. Not only has Webb captured the clearest view of this distant planet’s rings in more than 30 years, but its cameras reveal the ice giant in a whole new light.
– Most striking in Webb’s new image is the crisp view of the planet’s rings – some of which have not been detected since NASA’s. Voyager 2 became the first spacecraft to observe Neptune during its flyby in 1989. In addition to several bright, narrow rings, the Webb image clearly shows Neptune’s fainter dust bands. Photo:NASA
