New noise radars will be installed on Spain’s roads soon:
There are already fines given out in Spain for excess noise, known as ‘noise pollution’, but this Autumn you can expect a whole new headache, as noise radars start to be installed on the roads and streets of Spain, that measure the decibels emitted by your vehicle as it drives along, and it is predicted that by 2022, these radars could be in place, and ready to fine drivers whose vehicles exceed the permitted level of noise.

Facua denounces the large electricity companies for irregularities in the information of the new bills: Facua-Consumidores en Acción has denounced the leading marketers of the Endesa, Iberdrola and Naturgy groups before the National Markets and Competition Commission (CNMC) for “irregularities” in the information they provide in their new invoices.
In a statement, the association considers that the companies violate the requirements established in the resolution of April 28 of the General Directorate of Energy Policy and Mines, by not showing consumption, identifying each hourly period with colors as a traffic light as established by the normative, “thus fomenting the confusion of the users”.

ANDALUCIA

Strange Bedfellows?- Right wing conservative VOX party pledges to block socialist sponsored attempt at Covid passport requirements for nightlife: {Translation}
-Francisco Ocaña, MP and secretary general of the VOX Parliamentary Group in Andalusia, has criticised the imposition of the Covid passport by the Government of the Junta de Andalucía to gain access to the inside of nightlife venues in Andalusia. For Francisco Ocaña, this imposition “is another sign that Juanma Moreno is increasingly closer to the policies of Pedro Sánchez’s PSOE”. “This decision is a direct attack on the rights of Andalusians and only serves to grant arbitrary powers to the administrations”.
-“Why does Juanma Moreno insist on imitating Pedro Sánchez?”, asked the MP from Granada. “In VOX we are not going to allow more violations, discrimination or violations of the fundamental rights and freedoms of Andalusians”.
-Francisco Ocaña also came out in defence of the hotel and nightlife sector. “We are not going to allow Juanma Moreno to sink them. These are two sectors that in recent months have already suffered the disastrous restrictions imposed by the Junta de Andalucía”.
-The VOX deputy has stated categorically that “Juanma Moreno is wrong”. “The Covid passport is a savagery and from VOX we reject it outright. We are the only party that has been demanding the need not to discriminate against unvaccinated citizens”.
-“We say it loud and clear; if the Government of the Junta de Andalucía does not rectify the situation, VOX will go to court to put an end to this new violation of the rights of Andalusians”, concluded Ocaña.

-López reports that the Nerja Flea Market, managed by the local Lions Club, and the craft market We Love Nerja Market, which is held periodically in Plaza de España, have temporarily suspended their activities as a preventive measure in the face of the spread of the coronavirus.-
The councillor also clarified that “once the health situation changes and the circumstances allow it, these markets will resume their activity”. Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiaplus.es/se-suspenden-temporalmente-el-rastro-de-nerja-y-el-mercado-de-artesania-we-love-market/

 

Marbella and Estepona out of the curfew in the early hours of Saturday: {Translation, summary}
The curfew currently in force in Marbella and Estepona will end in the early hours of Saturday morning, a week after the measure was ratified by the High Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA). The Regional Ministry of Health has decided this Wednesday not to renew the time restriction in these two municipalities after both have lowered their Covid incidence rate to below 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, the threshold established by the Junta for the implementation of this measure. They are, according to the latest figures, at 900 and 955 cases, respectively. Source, Spanish: https://www.malagahoy.es/malaga/Marbella-Estepona-salen-toque-queda-sabado_0_1598541530.html

 

Moped Inspection- Returning to Nerja, the mobile inspection unit of ITV for mopeds on 11 and 12 August: {Translation}
-The Nerja Councillor for Safety and Transport, Francisco Arce, informs that the mobile ITV unit for mopeds will be in Nerja on 11th August, at the market square at the end of Calle Cisne, from 7.15am to 1.45pm, and the following day, 12th August, from 7.15am to 11.45am. The appointment must be attended wearing a mask without a valve and respecting the health measures against the coronavirus at all times.
-Arce reminds us that “all those interested in having their mopeds serviced must make an appointment, which can be requested via the website http://www.itvcita.com or by telephone on 959 999 999”. He also explained that payment must be made by bank card or letter of payment, and that they must be in possession of a valid driving licence, technical inspection card and proof of insurance.
-Mopeds are obliged to undergo their first MOT three years after the date of initial registration, and subsequent MOTs every two years. In this sense, to improve road safety and protect the environment, the Andalusian Regional Government’s Department of Finance and European Funding has mobile ITVs in service, which provide greater convenience to residents who have these vehicles and avoid having to travel to other places for inspections.

Spain Sports- Football and basketball will once again have an audience- the stadiums have a capacity of 40% and the enclosures, a 30%: {Translation, summary}

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #92- How to check if your Windows Operating System is Healthy:
There are several situations where you may want check if your Windows system is intact and healthy. These are indicators of system corruption:
-Your antivirus found and removed malware.
-You tried to install, or uninstall, an app, program or update and there was an error in the process.
-Your laptop battery died while installing, uninstalling or updating software.
-Your computer unexpectedly shut itself down.
-The computer is slow to respond to mouse or keyboard inputs.
-You get cryptic popup error messages, or BSODs (Blue Screen of Death).
-It takes longer to startup than it used to.
-Other unexplained odd behavior.
Here is how to run the Windows System Integrity Scan. This will scan your Windows system to make sure all the operating system files are intact. If it finds errors it will automatically attempt to correct them. When it finishes it will show a summary report of what it found, and if it made any repairs. This works on all current versions of Windows. 
-Open a command line window with Administrator privileges (type CMD in the searchbox, it will appear at the top of a list, right click it and choose to run as administrator). A new command line window will open.
-Enter this command “sfc/scannow” without quote marks. Click ENTER. If it asks permission to proceed, accept that.
-The scan can take 10mins on a healthy system, to an hour or more if it has to make repairs. When it is finished you will see one of three messages. If it says “No Problems Found”, or, “Problems Fixed” (see pic) then it is done and you can close the command box and restart. If it shows a different message, “Errors were found that could not be repaired”, repeat the process. If you continue to get this message, your system needs more advanced repairs or possibly a new installation of Windows. Immediately backup your important data onto an external memory device if you have not done so recently, while the system is still working. Then call DoctorLaptop to schedule an exam of the patient, 675 993 069, after 11am.

WhatsApp “View Once” disappearing photo/videos function lands on Samsung phones: View Once photos and videos have now been rolled out for all WhatsApp users. They can use it to send photos and videos that will automatically disappear from the chat after they have been opened.
– It’s a great privacy feature to secure sensitive information like a Wi-Fi password, for example, or photos or videos that you want the recipient to see only once. To use this feature, just tap on the “1” button on the left of the send button when sending a photo or video in a chat.
– All media sent through the WhatsApp View Once feature is secured with end-to-end encryption. This means that WhatsApp can’t see what’s being shared.
– The recipient will see it’s a disappearing photo when they receive it and it will be deleted automatically after they have seen it. There’s obviously nothing stopping them from taking a screenshot or recording their phone with another device, but that’s a whole other discussion.

Halting Erosion using Vetiver:
From Vetiver Spain in Sayalonga
Our Nursery is open by appointment depending on the current travel restrictions. Please email or call first. We have Moringa seedlings, Organic Moringa powder and Comfrey plants. We also have some local trees and some exotic trees from Africa.
Vetiver is a rapid growing and non-invasive sterile clump grass with a height of 1-2 metres and a root system of 3-4 metres in depth. We have been providing Vetiver throughout the EU for almost 10 years now. We are located in Sayalonga where we can plant year round but our best results by far start in February. The reason is that Vetiver is indigenous to India and Vetiver loves the heat of the summer. Use Vetiver cuttings as mulch around all of your fruit trees. Decomposing Vetiver improves soil quality, keeps the weeds down and the insects away all while helping to maintain soil moisture.
Vetiver is a nutritious and replenishable animal fodder. Horses and pigs love it. We use it in our chicken pens replacing hay because it stops mites.
In the 2 photos below you will see land prepared for Vetiver and the results 2 years later.
We also use Vetiver along driveways and sidewalks. It also makes a great and inexpensive ornamental hedge.
Here is a link to a short video showing the results.
https://youtu.be/rjTmb_LL2uo
We suggest planting now, as this is the BEST time of the year to plant.
To see more images of Vetiver go to this link.

Presently we have some specials, which include free shipping to numerous locations.

Coronavirus deaths in Spain soar to 130 in a day: The number of coronavirus infections is dropping but, simultaneously, the number of deaths is rocketing.
-The strong growth in infections during the beginning of July is starting to be reflected three weeks later in the morgues with 130 deaths in just 24 hours, a figure that has not been seen since 11 May when Spain was still suffering the effects of the fourth wave.
-However, in just one day Spain’s cumulative incidence rate fell almost 20 points, from 673.52 to 653.81 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, a drop that has not been seen for weeks. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202108/03/coronavirus-deaths-spain-soar-20210803184642.html

-The cumulative incidence rate has risen for 33 consecutive days and stands at 597.6 per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days, some 13.3 points more in 24 hours and 61.5 points more in a week.

ANDALUCIA

The Covid passport in discotheques is postponed until the TSJA gives the go-ahead to the measure in Andalusia: {Translation} Updated: 03/08/2021 19:57h
-The Covid passport for nightlife will not come into force this Thursday. This has been announced by the Minister of the Presidency and spokesman of the Andalusian Government, Elías Bendodo, who has pointed out that he will first ask the courts to rule on this measure, which in places like the Canary Islands has already been overturned by a ruling.
-Bendodo, who has hoped that the TSJA will rule on this matter “as soon as possible”, has indicated that this measure is taken for “greater legal certainty” when applying the measure.
-Nightlife entrepreneurs have asked the Junta that if in the bars and nightclubs Covid passport are imposed to access the interior of the establishments, the capacity restrictions that exist until now will be lifted.
-In the end, this postponement has been granted by means of a referral to the TSJA. In this way, the demands of the employers’ association of the nightlife sector, which had considered the measure to ask for the Covid passport as “early and without consensus”, have been partially deactivated.

-The municipalities with more than 5,000 inhabitants that currently have limited night mobility are Marbella (Malaga), Estepona (Malaga) and Montoro (Cordoba).

MALAGA

Nerja Saved From Lockdown: {Translation, summary}
-Nerja has left the red zone of high incidence of Covid-19, a day before the provincial public health alert committees meet to review the current restrictions for contagions. The risk of the Junta de Andalucía imposing a curfew from two in the morning to seven in the morning has therefore receded. On the other hand, Conil de la Frontera has passed the threshold of 1,000 cases.

OTHER NEWS

Another WhatsApp Scam Alert: The scam that seeks to steal your WhatsApp account with an SMS: The cybersecurity company ESET has warned of a new attack detected in the last hours that seeks to rob users of their account on the messaging platform WhatsApp with the sending of a fraudulent SMS.
-The cybercriminals behind the threat pose as WhatsApp technical support and contact the user through an SMS message to inform you that your phone number, the one linked to this service, you have been registered in a new account.
-Next, and to verify that the person they are addressing is the owner of the account, the cybercriminals they ask you to resend a six-digit security code that you will receive via SMS.
-If the victim sends the six-digit code to verify their identity, they will have completely lost control over their WhatsApp account and the cybercriminals will be able to log in with their phone number. That is, they can steal your account and impersonate the victim.
-ESET urge the users of this application to be vigilant for the possible reception of this type of SMS. If you see it in your inbox, they advise you to delete it immediately “in order to avoid a security breach,” as they point out in a statement.
-They also remind you that it is impossible for the potential victim’s number to be used to register a new account, since WhatsApp only allows one account per registered phone number. Source: https://spainsnews.com/the-scam-that-seeks-to-steal-your-whatsapp-account-with-an-sms/

Recommendations & Requests

 

Information Wanted – Pre-departure Covid tests: I read last week someone requesting information on a pharmacy in Torre del Mar offering rapid antigen tests for under 20 euros. Is there any update on this information? I know that there is a clinic in Nerja (opposite Mercadona) offering this for 35 euro and at the airport for 24 euro but they are fully booked. Thank you, Dawn (Nerja)

SPAIN

Spain retires the AstraZeneca vaccine for good, and sends the remaining doses to Latin America:
-Until 11 July, the final date of the study, 8,482,164 doses of Vaxzevria were administered in Spain, to 5,062,425 people. According to age groups, 83 per cent of recipients were between 18 and 65 years old and 17 per cent were over 65.
-During this period, 10,058 notifications of adverse events after a jab were registered in the Fedra database and the majority corresponded to women (74 per cent) and people between 18 and 65 years of age (96 per cent). Of all the notifications registered, some 2,252 were considered serious.
-Ministry of Health studies concluded that with the Oxford vaccine there is more than twice the possibility of serious reactions than with any other of the three authorised formulas in Spain.
-Fedra reveals that the possibility of suffering a serious problem after a jab with AstraZeneca is one in 3,766, a ratio that rises to one in 7,136 with Moderna; to one in 9,953 with Pfizer; to one in 10,441 with Janssen.
-Without a doubt, the biggest fear of AstraZeneca was the ‘very rare’ cases of thrombosis (formation of blood clots in the blood vessels) with thrombocytopenia (low levels of platelets), known as Thrombocytopenia Thrombosis Syndrome (TTS).
-Spain’s Ministry of Health announced the signing of a three-way agreement between the Government, AstraZeneca and Covax (the programme for donating vaccines to third countries). The deal means that the Anglo-Swedish laboratory will begin to send, directly to Latin America, the more than 20 million doses that Spain, despite having paid for them, is not willing to use. This is despite the fact that Spain has not even reached 60 per cent of its population immunised yet.

MALAGA

The fairgrounds of El Morche will become an amusement park from 6 to 15 August: {Translation}
-“To be able to enjoy the attractions, it will be necessary to wear a mask at all times, comply with the social distancing, and use hydroalcoholic gel at the entrance,” said the councillor for Fiestas, Salvador Escudero.
-El Morche will experience a different kind of fair this year, where there will be no shortage of lights or fun. From 6 to 15 August, the football pitch, where the fairground has always been located, will be transformed this year into an amusement park, which will delight young and old alike.
-The initiative comes from the fairground entrepreneurs, who approached the councillor for Fiestas in Torrox, Salvador Escudero, to propose the amusement park format implemented in other towns and cities.
-Escudero has also informed that they will continue with the events programmed for ‘Vive el verano’ and will add “some more performances”. Source, Spanish: https://www.axarquiaplus.es/el-recinto-ferial-de-el-morche-se-convertira-en-un-parque-de-atracciones-del-6-al-15-de-agosto/

OTHER NEWS

What is the difference between the ‘covid passport’ and the vaccination certificate?: {Translation}
-What is the covid passport? It is a digital accreditation endorsed by the Ministry of Health and Brussels, which came into force on 1 July and allows EU citizens to travel freely in Europe. This means that wherever you go, you don’t have to undergo a PCR or quarantine. It is a free certificate issued in English and Spanish that indicates whether you have the full vaccination schedule or if you have only one vaccination. It also certifies whether a person is PCR negative and has recovered from the disease in the last 6 months. This passport is issued by the European Union.
-What is the vaccination certificate? It is a certificate issued by the health authorities of each country as soon as you have received the full vaccination schedule. Anyone who has this certificate can enter Spain without restrictions.
-What is the difference between them? The vaccination certificate is only for those who have received the full course of vaccinations and the covid passport certifies your virus status, which can be either PCR-negative, fully vaccinated, with one dose or having passed the disease.

Saturn will reach its closest point to Earth this evening (last night, but prime viewing will last for a month), making the ringed planet visible in the night sky: Saturn will reach its closest point to Earth tonight, giving sky watchers the perfect opportunity to catch a glimpse of the ringed planet in all its beauty.
This evening will be the best time to see it as Earth moves almost directly between Saturn and the sun in an annual celestial event known as ‘opposition’.
It will be visible to the naked eye for everybody across the UK as soon as the sun sets, first appearing low on the horizon to the southeast and moving south up until 01:00 BST, when our solar system’s second-largest planet will be at its brightest in the night sky.
But don’t worry if you miss it or cloudy weather impedes your view, astronomers say you will still get a ‘decent’ glimpse of it any time next week and during the month ahead.

French police clash with protesters over health pass requirement: Thousands of security forces have been deployed around Paris to confront citizens protesting plans to introduce coronavirus passes. The protests are the third in as many weeks.
Nationwide, around 204,000 people took part in protests across the country, according to the Interior Ministry. The numbers were up from the figures logged during protests last weekend.
In Paris, police used teargas and force when confronting protesters at four different rallies across the city. Full article: https://www.dw.com/en/french-police-clash-with-protesters-over-health-pass-requirement/a-58717872 

 

Crowds in Berlin defy ban, protest coronavirus restrictions:
Local authorities banned several different protests this weekend, including one from the Stuttgart-based Querdenker movement, which expected 22,500 attendees. But protesters defied the ban, gathering Sunday around the city. Berlin’s police department, which deployed more than 2,000 officers, said as crowds grew, officers who sought to redirect protesters or disband larger groups were “harassed and attacked.”
“They tried to break through the police cordon and pull out our colleagues,” it said, adding that police had to use irritants and batons.
The protests, including in Berlin’s Charlottenburg neighborhood and Tiergarten Park, led to multiple arrests, police said.
Another 80,000 people also protested in cities across Italy last weekend. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/europe-health-arrests-coronavirus-pandemic-berlin-874d5e69750ffbb0e8364d15351cc3ad 

OTHER NEWS

Desperate NSW calls in the ARMY to enforce hardcore lockdown on two million Sydneysiders after worst-ever Covid numbers: This follows NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s admission that she should have locked Sydney down sooner as NSW clocked 239 new cases on Thursday, just a day after extending the city’s lockdown for another four weeks.
Ms Berejiklian also announced two million Sydney residents living in one of eight hotspot LGAs in the west and south-western suburbs would have to wear a mask whenever they leave home. Those areas are Canterbury-Bankstown, Fairfield, Liverpool, Blacktown, Cumberland, Parramatta, Campbelltown and Georges River.
From midnight on Saturday morning, residents in those LGAs also cannot travel more than 5km from their home for essential shopping or for exercise.

Study says vaccinated people can carry as much virus as others: In another dispiriting setback for the USA’s efforts to stamp out the coronavirus, scientists who studied a big COVID-19 outbreak in Massachusetts concluded that vaccinated people who got so-called breakthrough infections carried about the same amount of the coronavirus as those who did not get the shots.
The findings have the potential to upend past thinking about how the disease is spread. Previously, vaccinated people who got infected were thought to have low levels of virus and to be unlikely to pass it to others. But the new data shows that is not the case with the delta variant.

Censorship News- YouTube suspends Sky News Australia channel: YouTube said Sunday it had barred Sky News Australia from uploading new content for one week, citing concerns about Covid-19 misinformation. (I don’t know about you, but I trust Sky News Australia far more than I trust YouTube when it comes to news accuracy. -Ed.)
Their last YouTube upload, from three days ago, features a host claiming that lockdowns have failed and criticising state authorities for extending Sydney’s current stay-at-home orders.
Sky News, with 1.86 million YouTube subscribers, confirmed the temporary ban and a spokesperson said “we support broad discussion and debate on a wide range of topics and perspectives which is vital to any democracy”.

We are a Torrox-based company specialising in the creation of formulae which help prevent premature skin ageing
We are committed to making effective products at affordable prices
Free delivery for orders more than 36€ in Spain
International shipping to UK, EU, CANADA and USA available
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 health. As we grow older, however, our skin becomes thinner, wrinkled, and more sensitive; hence it requires the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognising this need we have created a range of formulae which help
-slow down ageing process by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
-improve facial complexion and eliminate blemishes.
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, cell revitalization and antioxidant effect, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients with gorgeous fragrances.
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 local customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering a small discount on future purchases to customers recycling containers.
Free small testers are available on request. Please contact us to find out more or to order:

Car Clean Malaga Recommendation: I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Warren at Car Clean Malaga if you need your vehicle sprucing up or valeting.
My Suzuki (pictured) is 15 years old and it now it looks as though it’s 2 years old, fantastic job on the exterior paintwork, headlights, wheels and interior (which was really filthy). He even cleaned the engine, a very reliable, trustworthy and concientous gentleman. The car was collected, a vehicle left with me in case of emergencies and returned within 48 hours.

Please contact: jimnurture AT hotmail DOT com. Jim, Competa/ Torrox road.

 

Beware: A lady in Nerja centre yesterday had a man at her door in a block of flats in Nerja. (he had already gained entry through the main door.)
He said he was from Endesa and needed to check the appliances, as someone was having work done in the block and it was causing problems.
The lady was English and he spoke to her in English.
After she let him in he wanted her D N I number and would not accept her driving license and demanded to see her passport or T I E-card, which was in her bedroom.
She, went into her bedroom to get it, and during this time he was wanting her to turn appliances on and off. He then said he needed to go downstairs to the main fusebox to check something, and when he had not returned, she went to check and he and his companion had disappeared.
So had money from her purse which she had left out being so flustered. Initially he told her she should have received a letter informing her of their visit. So please everyone be on your guard !! and don´t let anyone into tour home.

SPAIN

Business Transactions In Cash Now Limited To Only €1000:
{Translation, summary}
It should be noted that this barrier only applies when “one of the intervening parties is acting as an entrepreneur or professional”. For example, if you go to a garage and the repair of your vehicle exceeds €1,000, you will not be able to pay in cash under any circumstances. Therefore, any shop or business will only be able to accept cash payments up to that amount. However, if it is a purchase between private individuals, e.g. furniture or a car, there would be no limitation.
The anti-fraud law has already entered into force and entails a reduction compared to the previous limit of 2,500 euros.
The measure affects Spanish companies and professionals. “However, the aforementioned amount will be 10,000 euros or its equivalent in foreign currency when the payer is a natural person who can justify that they do not have their tax domicile in Spain and are not acting as a businessperson or professional,” the law states. In other words, tourists coming to Spain will be able to enjoy a cash payment limit 10 times higher. Source, Spanish: https://www.larazon.es/economia/20210729/pu5gj3oxxbfqrb3b6zk27jdjra.html

Cat Mews- Velez Malaga approves new animal welfare ordinance and CER method: {Translation, summary}
The new ordinance, among other things, includes the implementation of a programme for the management and control of urban cat colonies through the ‘CER Method’ (Capture, Sterilisation and Return) with the aim of progressively reducing the cat population of each colony, creating a census of urban cats grouped in colonies in the municipality and encouraging the adoption of cats. This programme will be implemented by means of an action plan carried out by volunteers who will have a card approved by the City Council and who may be feeders, coordinators or capturers, and as those responsible for the cat colonies they will also have a series of obligations to fulfil.

Germany tightens rules for travellers on virus concerns: Germany will require all unvaccinated travellers arriving in the country from Sunday to present a negative COVID-19 test result, stepping up health checks on returning holidaymakers amid concern over rising case loads in holiday destinations.
Previously, only airline passengers were required to produce a negative test if they were not vaccinated and had not recovered from COVID-19 in the previous six months. People entering by road, rail or sea were not required to do so. Full article: https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/germany-tightens-rules-travellers-virus-concerns-2021-07-30/

Tokyo Olympics- Djokovic out, Barega wins, doubts over Biles, Russians face backlash: Novak Djokovic’s bid for Olympic gold ended and Ethiopia’s Selemon Barega was a surprise champion in the 10,000m as the Tokyo Olympics continued to throw up shocks on day seven.
World number one Djokovic had been aiming to complete a ‘Golden Slam’ but lost to Germany’s Alexander Zverev. Djokovic had been aiming to become the first man to complete a ‘Golden Slam’ – winning Olympic gold and all four Grand Slams in one year. He had already won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon but his bid for history was derailed when Zverev came from a set down to win 1-6 6-3 6-1 at the Ariake Tennis Park.
World number five Zverev now has the chance to take the gold medal when he faces Russian Karen Khachanov in Sunday’s final. Photo:BBC. Full article: https://www.bbc.com/sport/olympics/58023012 

 

Football News- Rebel clubs to press on with Super League after court ruling: Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid vowed to press on with the European Super League project on Friday after a court ruled against what the clubs called “UEFA’s threats.”
A Spanish court on Friday threw out an appeal by UEFA against the decision this month to unwind the actions taken against all of the 12 Super League founding clubs.
The three remaining clubs not to abandon the Super League plan — Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus — released a joint statement welcoming the court’s decision against “UEFA’s monopolistic position over European football” and reiterated their stance to continue planning a breakaway competition.
A ruling by the mercantile court in Madrid on July 1, made on request by the Super League, declared null a battery of disciplinary measures that nine of the 12 clubs behind the Super League agreed to in May after a backlash against the proposed league.
It also voided the combined payment of 15 million euros ($17.8 million) by the nine clubs for what UEFA called a “gesture of goodwill,” as well as the pledge made by the nine that they would accept a fine of 100 million euros ($118 million) if they seek again to play in an unauthorized competition.

OTHER NEWS

On-Line Scam Update- Phony Call Centers Tricking Users Into Installing “BazaLoader” Ransomware and Data Stealers: Targeted users are sent email messages informing them of a forthcoming subscription charge unless they call a specific phone number. By tricking the recipients into calling the number, the unsuspecting victims are connected with an actual human operator at a fraudulent call center, who then provides them with instructions to download the BazaLoader app to fix the issue, which is really malware. Because the victim installs the app, it evades detection by security software.
In May, Palo Alto Networks and Proofpoint revealed an elaborate infection mechanism that leveraged websites associated with fake ebooks (World Books) and movie streaming subscription services (BravoMovies) as a stepping stone to deliver rigged Excel spreadsheets containing the BazaLoader malware. The latest attack disclosed by Microsoft is no different in that the call center agent serves as a conduit, urging the caller to navigate to a recipe website (“topcooks[.]us”) in order to cancel the non-existent trial subscription.
Once comprimised, the attacker can move quickly within a network, conduct extensive data exfiltration and credential theft, and distribute ransomware. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2021/07/phony-call-centers-tricking-users-into.html

 

Amazon Stock Loses $130 Billion In Market Value After EU regulators fine Amazon $1.2 billion for data protection violations: The Luxembourg National Commission for Data Protection issued a decision against the company earlier this month, claiming that its processing of personal data did not comply with the European Union general data protection regulation.
Amazon has come under scrutiny by the EU before. In November regulators filed antitrust charges against the company, accusing Amazon of using its access to data from companies that sell products on its platform to gain an unfair advantage over them.

Lateral Flow Tests for flights to England: I am returning to England in a few weeks and need a Lateral Flow Test 72 hours or less before the flight. Farmacia Monllor in Avenida Moscatel, Torre del Mar is offering them at just under €20 per person, which is cheaper than the private clinics (around €50) or Malaga Airport (around €25) I am assured by Farmacia Monllor that the service they provide and the fit-to-fly certificate they issue conforms to all UK government requirements but am wondering if anyone can confirm this from personal experience, or from the experience of any visitors they’ve had. I don’t want to be turned away at check-in! Caroline, Velez Malaga

SPAIN

The government extends until November the ban on cutting off electricity, water and gas and the anti-eviction decree: {Translation, summary}
-The anti-eviction decree and the ban on basic supplies to vulnerable families will remain in force until at least November. Government sources confirm that the Council of Ministers to be held next Tuesday will approve the extension until 31 October of the decree that includes these measures and others deployed in an extraordinary way in housing, such as the possibility for landlords in vulnerable situations to request a moratorium on rent when the landlord is a company or a large landlord.
-The law prohibits the eviction of families considered vulnerable by social services, and there is only one scenario in which evictions can be carried out: the landlord must be a small owner and the autonomous community must provide alternative housing for the affected party. If the administration is not able to rehouse the family, the family should be able to stay in their residence even if they cannot pay for it, and in such a case the state provides the landlord with compensation.
-The protection is greater if the landlord is a company or a landlord of more than ten dwellings, as in that case the rule automatically suspends the eviction if the family can prove their vulnerability.
– The fine print includes a veto on cutting off electricity, water and gas to families considered vulnerable by social services. The decree also prohibits cutting off basic supplies to “those consumers who meet the condition of vulnerable consumer, severely vulnerable or at risk of social exclusion”.
-The measures relating to renting will also be extended beyond 9 August. Tenants whose rental contract expires before 31 October will be able to ask their landlord to extend it for a maximum period of six more months under the same conditions. The landlord will be obliged to do so, unless he agrees different terms with the tenant.
-If the landlord is a large landlord (an individual or company with more than 10 flats), the tenant has other options. If the tenant has lost all or part of his job, his income does not exceed 1,613 euros per month and the rent, together with basic utilities, takes up more than 35% of his income, he can apply for a deferment of the rent.

Alicante residents mistakenly jabbed with serum not Pfizer vaccine: Alicante residents who were mistakenly jabbed with serum not the Pfizer vaccine are set to receive a third dose of the Pfizer vaccine, to make sure that they are fully vaccinated.
This means that some of the Alicante residents will become the first people in Spain to receive a third jab of the Pfizer vaccine. This is something which is being considered for the general population at the moment.
Spain’s regional Ministry of Health have recalled about 30 people in Spain’s Alicante who received the second dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccination in Biar in Alicante. Sadly 12 of them were mistakenly given serum only. The shocking mistake was spotted at the end of the day when alarm bells rang and health staff realised that a mistake had been made. They discovered that 12 doses were not diluted correctly. Full article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/07/29/alicante-residents-mistakenly-jabbed-with-serum-not-pfizer-vaccine/

OTHER NEWS

US recommends not travelling to Spain due to Covid, ‘civil unrest’ and ‘terrorism’ threats: The Travel Advisory index of the United States of America, which measures the safety of its citizens in other countries, has lowered Spain to level 4 (red), and the State Department has warned “Do not travel to Spain due to Covid-19” before adding “act more cautiously in the country due to terrorism and civil unrest.” However, the notice is not an express prohibition.
Spain shares this level 4 (red) warning with other European countries such as Portugal and the United Kingdom, while the US Consular Affairs Office has reviewed the situation in countries such as France, Italy and Greece, placing them at a ‘level 3’ to “reconsider” the possibility of travel.
The traffic light system has four levels that go from green (take the usual precautions) to red, that Spain now sits in. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/national/202107/29/recommends-travelling-spain-covid-20210729094555.html

Covid Malaga- Malaga registers a notable drop in Covid cases, but there are four more fatalities: {Translation, summary} Updated: 28 Julio, 2021, 13:43.
-The province of Malaga recorded Wednesday a notable drop in the number of Covid cases and the rate fell slightly, but there were another four deaths with the virus and 53 hospitalisations in just one day. Furthermore, although the incidence rate has fallen, it continues to be the highest in the autonomous community.
-At the provincial level, the incidence is 840.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The previous day it was 855.2. But although it is decreasing, it is the province with the highest number in the autonomous community. At regional level, the average rate is 540.4. This is an increase compared to the previous day, when it was 536.1. Where it also falls is in the capital. The city of Malaga had an incidence of 1006.1 positives per 100,000 inhabitants on Tuesday -which would have led to a curfew- and this Wednesday it is 977.9 which frees it from that measure.
-The most negative part of the daily report from the Department of Health and Families is that four more deaths are reported with the virus.
-The pressure of care continues to rise. There are currently 467 patients in hospital, 74 of them in the ICU. This number means that – excluding discharges – there are 14 more than the previous day when the number of hospitalised patients was 453.

Dusty Hill, bassist for legendary Texas band ZZ Top, dies in his sleep at age 72: Dusty Hill, who played bass with ZZ Top for more than 50 years and helped make the Texas trio one of the world’s most famous rock acts, has died in his sleep. The band announced the news via social media on Wednesday. Hill was 72. (The cause was reported to be related to a “hip injury”. “Hipsters” will understand that as slang for another common health problem among musicians that “die in their sleep”, like Tom Petty and his “hip injury”, who died in his sleep… from an OD of the opioid painkiller Fentanyl mixed with an anti-anxiety drug in the benzodiazepine class. Or Prince and his “hip injury”, but he didn’t make it to his bed, he OD’d waiting for an elevator.  -Ed.) I have included a full concert video from one of ZZ Top’s last concerts, in 2021.  Video Link.

Perseid meteor shower 2021- All you need to know: 2021 is an excellent year for this shower! No matter where you live worldwide, the 2021 Perseid meteor shower will probably produce the greatest number of meteors on the mornings of August 11, 12 and 13. On the peak mornings in 2021, in the early morning hours, when the most meteors will be flying, there’ll be no moon to ruin on the show.
These meteors burn up about 60 miles (100 km) above the Earth’s surface. If any meteor survives its fiery plunge to hit the ground intact, the remaining portion is called a meteorite. Few, if any, meteors in meteor showers become meteorites, however, because of the flimsy nature of comet debris. Most meteorites are the remains of asteroids. Photo:James Younger.

Slipknot founding drummer Joey Jordison has died, Monday July 26th, aged 46: Jordison was Slipknot’s drummer in their original formation, when they were called The Pale Ones and later Meld. He came up with the name Slipknot in 1995. The drummer departed the band in 2013, after making four albums with them.
The Iowa native revealed in 2016 that he departed Slipknot due to an inability to play as a result of a neurological disease called transverse myelitis, a type of multiple sclerosis, that left his legs paralysed. He recovered from his illness and began playing again in a number of bands.
