Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Spain reports 11,291 new coronavirus cases and 162 deaths:
The Madrid region continues to face the greatest pressure, with 21% of hospital beds occupied by Covid-19 patients, compared to the national average of 8.6%
The Spanish Health Ministry recorded 11,291 new coronavirus cases and an additional 162 deaths in its official report on Thursday. This brings the total death toll – which only includes those who died after a positive PCR test – to 30,405. Madrid accounted for more than a third (34%) of new Covid-19 cases recorded by Spain’s regions. The daily report did not include figures from the Murcia region, which for the second day in a row experienced “technical difficulties” when reporting its latest coronavirus statistics to the ministry. Catalonia reported the same problems on Tuesday. Full story: https://english.elpais.com/society/2020-09-18/spain-reports-11291-new-coronavirus-cases-and-162-deaths.html

 

Costa del Sol hotels close en masse with no reopening date on the horizon: Hoteliers predict that only 20 per cent of the Costa’s establishments will be open this winter, as many local icons close for the season for the first time ever. During this month last year 72% of the Costa’s hotel rooms were full, and with higher-spending tourists. This year the month’s occupancy is expected to be no more than 23%, according to the Costa del Sol hoteliers’ association, Aehcos.

UK entering second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson warns: Britain is entering a second wave of coronavirus, Boris Johnson has said as scientists expressed fears the death toll could be as high as in the first spike without a rapid change in public behaviour. The prime minister is prepared to impose sweeping nationwide measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, it is understood. About 13.5 million people in the UK – one in five – are already facing local lockdowns after the government introduced new measures in parts of the north-west, Yorkshire and the Midlands.
Speaking during a visit to Oxfordshire, Johnson said: “We are now seeing a second wave coming in. We’ve seen it in France, in Spain, across Europe. It’s been absolutely inevitable, I’m afraid, that we would see it in this country.” PHOTO:TWITTER

There won’t be any requirement for you to argue the case, you’d just be there to ensure I haven’t missed something in translation.

Junta advises against non-essential gatherings, as coronavirus case figures soar in Andalucía: The regional president Juanma Moreno has not ruled out new restrictions if the case figures continue to rise during the rest of September. He expressed his “concern” over the evolution of the pandemic with the feared second wave coming earlier than expected.
Moreno advised against non-essential gatherings, even those with relatives “whenever possible”. Infection was easier at gatherings where people drop their guard, he said. Full story:

Bank of Spain downgrades economic forecast and warns of slower recovery: According to the central lender, GDP will fall between 10.5% and 12.6% this year as a result of the coronavirus crisis. Although the end of the lockdown in Spain had created hopes of a strong recovery, fresh coronavirus outbreaks and travel restrictions imposed in late July put the brakes on economic activity, particularly in the hospitality industry.

Lockdown confusion in Madrid, as regional government denies health chief’s announcement of new lockdowns: Sources close to the premier denied that any decisions have been made yet regarding stricter coronavirus measures in Madrid, directly contradicting statements made earlier in the day by Antonio Zapatero.
Since the end of the state of alarm implemented by the Spanish central government in March, the country’s regional governments have been in charge of the measures aimed at controlling the virus. The Madrid regional government – which is governed by the PP and center-right Ciudadanos (Citizens), with the support of far-right Vox – has been widely criticized for inaction both with regard to preparing the reopening of schools and for failure to prevent the region from once again becoming the epicenter of the ongoing coronavirus health crisis.
Current coronavirus restrictions in Madrid limit meetings in public and private to 10 people if they do not live together. Capacity at religious sites, cemeteries and funeral homes is at 60% of the usual level, as are weddings, baptisms and communions. Occupation of counters in bars is limited to 50% of capacity, while chairs in restaurants and other establishments must be 1.5 meters apart.

Panther Sighting Confirmed? : Proof of a black panther roaming wild in Granada has come to light as a cyclist has managed to photograph the animal clearly and shared the image. (However, I can’t find that picture anywhere.-Ed.)
Now even the most incredulous residents of the town of Ventas de Huelma are worried. The authorities have warned that due to the speed of the animal, which is very elusive, the black panther can constantly change its location and have asked residents to avoid going out into the fields or wooded areas until the Civil Guard manages to capture it.
Through its Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ayto.ventasdehuelma/
the Town Hall has spread a message confirming several sightings including that a resident spotted the animal this Tuesday, September 15, at approximately 2pm, “just 20 metres from his vehicle in the vicinity of the Cortijo de Noniles, located between Acula and Chimeneas.”
They posted this info also: “We report that on the afternoon of Sunday, a member of Civil Protection who was doing tracking work to find the Panther that is in the vicinity of Ventas de Huelma, claimed to have seen her on the road to Agrón. It is an animal with great mobility and can constantly change places. That is why we ask that your guard not be lowered and that we remain alert, in case of seeing the animal, call 112. From Seprona they tell us that they continue with the search device.
“Seprona informs us that they are already searching the area in search of the Panther, with a helicopter equipped with a thermal camera and several patrols on the ground with another thermal camera. We hope they can finally locate the animal and rescue it in good condition.” Reference also: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/16/black-panther-spotted-roaming-granada-areas/

Pre-planning your funeral is a thoughtful and responsible way to show you care about your family.
Funerals are no easy task. There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase and burial grounds. A loved one’s death brings immense emotional strain to any family, and the question of financing and arrangements only exacerbates the stress.

Purchasing a funeral plan with Golden Leaves enables you to plan, design and pay for your funeral services in advance.

Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga is now fully open!
We have started to receive clients but by appointment only. It is wonderful to finally be able to have visitors! We are of course following the legal guidelines regarding masks and social distancing.
The summer is a great time to plant Vetiver as this plant is indigenous to India. Vetiver loves the heat of summer to grow. Vetiver is often used as a wind barrier in the fall and winter months. Vetiver is the best plant to stabilise erosion prone locations before the first fall rains come. We have plenty of plants in stock for either pickup or delivery via the Spanish Correos.
It is always a great way to spend a day in the garden.
We also have Moringa seeds, Lemon Grass, Moringa seedlings and now our new product, Organic Moringa Powder. If you do not know the medicinal powers of Moringa you can check it out here. https://www.vetiverspain.org/moringa-oleifera-.html
This month we have some specials for both pickup and shipments.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Malaga doctors threaten protest action if calls for “urgent change” ignored: “It is essential to do it now; there is no more time,” they stress.
Unless the administration led by Juanma Moreno responds to their demands they will pick up on the protests “at the same point we left them with the previous government,” the platform warns.
According to the Basta Ya Malaga medical advocate platform, the Junta de Andalucia has “abandoned” medical centre professionals “to their luck”, and therefore the population they care for.
What the platform wants to see is change to “a health care system which is insufficiently funded and subjected to intolerable pressure due to the pandemic and by bad management, mainly by the Health Assistance Directorate General.” Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/15/malaga-doctors-threaten-protest-action-if-calls-for-urgent-change-ignored/

 

Spain’s Minimum Living Income Scheme Updated: The Ministry of Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations is preparing some “Minor regulatory adjustments,” with which it will extend the deadline to receive a response to the requests for the Minimum Vital Income (IMV), which would begin to expire from this Tuesday due to administrative silence. The objective is that none of the presented ones expire and “speed up the procedures” in the face of the high number of files.
So far, they have received more than 900,000 applications, of which 330,000 have been processed and there are already 85,000 families (270,000 people, half children) who receive it.
According to the Royal Decree that approves this aid, if within three months from the entry of the file, the applicant has not received a response, “the application shall be deemed to have been denied due to administrative silence.” Specifically, one of these changes will consist of extending the deadline to receive the response to the request for the Minimum Vital Income, establishing a new enough period so that none of those already presented does not “expire.” Full story: https://spainsnews.com/inclusion-will-extend-the-response-time-to-requests-for-the-minimum-living-income/

 

Spain Rental contracts with a “Covid clause” arrive due to the possibility of a new confinement: The exceptional situation generated by the coronavirus has resulted in new conditions in some rental contracts that aim to regulate and protect against a hypothetical new confinement or state of alarm.

Egypt cuts highways across pyramids plateau, alarming conservationists: Critics say they could cause irrevocable damage to one of the world’s most important heritage sites. Authorities say they will be built with care and improve transport links, connecting new urban developments and bypassing central Cairo’s congestion.
“The roads are very, very important for development, for Egyptians, for inside Egypt,” said Mostafa al-Waziri, secretary-general of Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities. “Know that we take good care of our antiquities sites everywhere in Egypt.”
Some Egyptologists and conservationists say the highways will disrupt the integrity of the pyramids plateau, pave over unexplored archaeological sites, generate pollution that could corrode monuments, produce litter and expose closed areas packed with hidden archaeological treasures to looting.

CNN Fake News Called Out- Alan Dershowitz Files $300 Million Lawsuit Against CNN for Portraying Him as an ‘Intellectual Who Had Lost His Mind’: Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against CNN, claiming the cable news network, together with their hosts and panelists, intentionally created a false narrative about what the famed criminal defense attorney argued while defending the president during impeachment proceedings earlier this year.
“In fact, no panel guest would have even considered embarrassing himself or herself on national television with their false conclusions had the video clip properly included the part where Professor Dershowitz unequivocally and unambiguously stated that an illegal act would prevent a quid pro quo from being lawful,” the lawsuit stated. “The phrase that included the word ‘illegal’ was an essential part of his argument, and that is precisely why CNN decided to omit it. It is evident that the decision to omit the portion in question was no accident or simple negligence on the part of CNN.”

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).
September Sale- 10% discount if you purchase 2 items in a phone or an email order. To find out more or to order, please call us on 650 044 102.

Andalucia Teachers Call For Strike: The strike is being called to take effect for all non-university public education centres in the Junta de Andalucia and is being called to occur between September 15, 2020, at midnight until October 16, 2020 at midnight.
In correspondence received by parents from the Junta de Andalucia on Friday September 11, 2020, the strike is considered necessary to ensure the safety of both staff and students.
As agreed by a union assembly, the action is to ensure that teachers do not have to take unnecessary risks at being exposed to Covid-19 without an effective vaccine or treatment process being available.

EU plays the money card as Johnson faces Brexit revolt in parliament:
The European Union on Monday ramped up pressure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step back from breaking the Brexit divorce treaty, delaying a key decision on London’s euro clearing just as he faces a rebellion in the British parliament.
The European Union says Johnson’s plan would wreck trade talks and propel the United Kingdom towards a messy Brexit while former British leaders have warned that breaking the law is a step too far that will tarnish the country’s image.

Israel to Celebrate Jewish New Year Under a Second Lockdown:
Citizens will be confined to within 500 yards of their homes for at least three weeks in an effort to contain the spread of coronavirus.
The announcement on Sunday came barely four months after Israel emerged from its last lockdown, too hastily, many critics said, and as its per capita infection rate rose to among the highest in the world.

Sayalonga asking the public to go into voluntary lockdown: Sayalonga in the province of Malaga has made a formal request to have its neighbouring inhabitants placed into voluntary confinement due to the increase in the coronavirus cases specific to the area.
The local government have also requested the cessation of all public activities and a severe reduction in the allowed capacity of shops in the town of Axarquia.
Mayor Sagrario Fernández has made a formal request for inhabitants of Axarquia town to enter voluntary confinement stating that the request is being made “so that we only abandon the family home in cases of dire need.”
The new decree also advises, “the voluntary cessation of activity and the reduction of the capacity of shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, entertainment venues and entertainment and meetings in public spaces.” Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/12/sayalonga-asking-the-public-to-go-into-voluntary-lockdown/

 

Fire in Frigiliana: INFOCA, the Andalusian Fire Prevention and Extinction Plan, came to help control a forest fire that had been active since early Saturday afternoon. The fire affected an area called Los Trancos and Fuente Vieja, near the town and where there are scattered houses. The fire burned two hectares of land, but no residents required evacuation. The fire spread rather slowly and by late afternoon it was considered controlled.

Spanish Gov’t In Turmoil- Echoes of Franco as Spain’s far right tells PM his government is ‘worst in 80 years’: Spain’s far right is taking its strategy to a new level. On Wednesday, during the first question time in the lower house of parliament following summer recess, the leader of Vox made statements that reminded many of a phrase uttered by Francisco Franco supporters years after the dictator’s death: “Life was better under Franco.”
Santiago Abascal, whose Vox party holds 52 seats, making it the third-largest force in the Congress of Deputies, addressed Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez of the Socialist Party (PSOE) to tell him that “you head the worst government in 80 years.” Full story: https://english.elpais.com/politics/2020-09-10/echoes-of-franco-as-spains-far-right-tells-pm-his-government-is-worst-in-80-years.html

 

‘Shocking’: Blair, Major chide UK plan to breach international law: Former prime ministers Tony Blair and John Major said on Sunday Britain must drop a “shocking” plan to pass legislation that breaks its divorce treaty with the European Union, in a breach of international law.
Johnson’s Internal Market Bill is aimed at ensuring Britain’s four constituent nations can trade freely with one another after leaving the EU, but the government says that requires overriding part of the withdrawal treaty it signed with Brussels.
British ministers say the bill is a “safety net” in the event there is no trade deal reached with the bloc, but top EU officials say it undermines both the withdrawal treaty and trust in future talks.

Internet Vampires- The world needs an Internet free from USA control before they destroy it: {DigameXtra.com} US based milirary programs and big tech firms threaten the Internet as we know it. With absolutely no concern for users rights worldwide they are developing and implementing tools and programs for military spying, data gathering and insatiable coprerate greed. The fact is, the rest of the world does not need the US in order to maintain the Internet outside of the US. This article, strangely enough from Microsoft News, explains in great detail why it is essential to wrestle control of the Internet away from the US, and strictly limit their access to the Internet outside of the US. They have proven time and time again they are incapable of managing a free and secure Internet. I fully expect they will at some future date use this article as proof they openly warned us of their intentions, as we didn’t fight back they took that as implicit acceptance. Do not invite the vampire in, make your displeasure with these developments known. Write your EU leaders demanding they put a stop to this!  Reference this revealing article:

UFC star McGregor arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure and attempted sexual assault in Corsica: A spokesman for the retired mixed martial arts star told the AFP news agency that the Irishman “vigorously denies any accusation of bad behaviour”.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

 

Getting a doctor’s appointment this summer has become a real ordeal: Health centres across Malaga province are overwhelmed by the coronavirus situation and it can take up to 14 days to speak to your doctor on the phone. There are long queues of patients waiting to see their doctor in cases where the appointment cannot be put off. It is impossible to ring some health centres because the phones are constantly engaged, and those who try to make an appointment through the Salud Responde app are often given the message that “there are no appointments available at your health centre for the next 14 days”.

Trials for Covid-19 vaccine which was due to arrive in Spain by December are suspended: The third phase of clinical trials for the so-called ‘Oxford vaccine’ against Covid-19, developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University, have been suspended while an independent committee investigates a suspected adverse reaction in one of the participants. One volunteer in the trial in the UK has suffered an inflammation of the spine – transverse myelitis – which is often caused by viral infections.

Germany announces more focused travel warnings: The German recommendation against all but essential travel to some 160 countries due to the risk of Covid-19 infection will be lifted on September 30, government spokesperson Martina Fiez announced on Wednesday.
From then on the Foreign Ministry will analyse the virus situation in each country and issue specific warnings for nations and for regions. Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/09/09/ray-of-hope-for-spanish-tourism-as-germany-announces-more-focused-travel-warnings/
