News & Articles

Local councils agree to control parakeet plague by shooting: The provincial government will carry out a public awareness campaign to explain why such drastic measures are necessary. The main local councils affected by the plague of monk parakeets agreed on Friday that the most appropriate, albeit unpopular, way of controlling the population is by shooting them with air rifles. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/201912/02/local-councils-agree-control-20191202124516.html

 

Ruling clears way for more Sunday Shop Openings in Malaga City: A court has overturned a regional government restriction on larger shops and shopping centres in Malaga city opening on Sunday and public holidays. Malaga is officially classified as an area with a high concentration of tourism, meaning shops can open.
But the Junta banned stores over 300 metres and parts of national chains opening on Sundays and public holidays in areas outside the centre of the city.
Larger shops have been complaining, and now the court agrees, saying that the Junta cannot impose those restrictions and that all stores should be free to set their own timetables.

Local Newspapers Battle for Internet Traffic Share: While DigameXtra enjoys an exclusive niche of publishing daily and is growing steadily in readership and website visits, we don’t get near the web traffic of the big players in the media marketplace. It appears the competition for top local newspaper is heating up. EuroWeekly posted this article 29Nov19 that appears  designed to redirect people searching for the Olive Press News to the EuroWeekly site. The article is titled “The Olive Press Latest News From http://www.euroweeklynews.com”. The content of the article discusses actual olive pressing machines, while also being sure to include keywords “olive press news” several times. I thought the Spanish April Fools Day was Dec. 28?!? This is a common tactic but is rarely so “in your face”, most webmasters just bury the individual keywords scattered among unrelated text, not using whole phrases that clearly ID a target.

News & Articles

Casting Call for wartime drama starring Colin Firth set to film on Costa next March: A Malaga casting company is searching for extras. ModExpoR is looking above all for men over 20 with a classic look and short hair, and clean shaven, who would be able to play German or Allied soldiers. Those interested in taking part can initially apply online at the casting company’s website. The dates set for filming in the Malaga area are 4-8 March. Not all locations have been revealed, but it is known that Malaga city hall will be used for at least one scene.
John Madden, the director of Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love, is to film in Malaga and surrounding area in March in his latest project, and Colin Firth is set to take one of the lead roles.
Exact details of the filming aren’t known, but the title of the World War II drama is Operation Mincement. The script centres on the true story of a plot to fool Nazis into believing that the Allied invasion of southern Europe in 1943 wouldn’t come via Sicily but from Greece instead.

Travel Advisory: Spanish foreign ministry advises against travel to southwestern Algeria at a time when many people fly there to visit Sahrawi refugees. On Wednesday they issued an alert advising against travel to Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, in southwestern Algeria, due to the risk of a terrorist attack.
Many Spaniards regularly travel to these camps as part of a volunteer program called Vacaciones en Paz (Vacation in Peace), which each summer welcomes around 4,000 Sahrawi children aged eight through 12 into Spanish homes during the months of July and August. Many of these Spanish families later go visit their young guests in Tindouf, either during the Christmas holidays or in early December, when there are two back-to-back public holidays. At these times, the Spanish population in Tindouf increases tenfold. Full article: https://elpais.com/elpais/2019/11/28/inenglish/1574929809_487470.html

News & Articles

Trojan virus planted in Spanish banking apps: The Android banking apps affected are those from Caixabank, Bankinter, Bankia, BBVA, EVO Banco, Kutxabank and Santander.
Authorities have issued warnings about a malware that has been planted in the online banking apps of seven Spanish banks and which allows thieves to access your login details and clear out your account.
The ‘Ginp’ malware only affects mobile apps on the Android version.
How do I know if I am infected?
When the bank app is launched, the effect of the appearance of the malicious screen is similar to when it is passed from one application to another on Android mobiles. “If you then look in the list of apps that you have open you see an unnamed one like the most recent one, open after the one in the bank,” an expert explains. This type of attack is called overlay. It consists of getting on top of the banking app through an Android permit. Google has made it increasingly difficult to achieve, but it still happens.
What do I do?
Take the App off your phone and contact your bank soonest to check on whether you´d need to cancel your bank cards.

Recommendations

Air Conditioning: Thanks to all the responders, “Cooltech” the clear favourites. Booked. John/Torrox ; Johnmlovell at gmail dot com

Chimney Sweep Recommendation: We needed a sweep before the onset of winter knowing we had a hornet’s nest in there. Diego was originally booked for last Thursday but it was a bit wet for roof work! He came on Saturday despite being advised it was a bit windy. No problem, the only Spanish workman I have ever seen with a safety harness! He is a recommended worker, clean, prompt and effective not too expensive either.

Why cancer patients in Spain are changing address to stay alive:
Almost half of all oncologists in Spain are reporting huge disparities between different regions in terms of patient access to the latest life-saving cancer treatments, spurring many patients to pack up and move (at least on paper).
Time is of the essence when it comes to cancer and stopping it in its tracks.
But in Spain, a country where bureaucratic holdups are part and parcel of daily life, the repercussions attached to slow public service delivery in the health sector can prove lethal for some.
Spain’s Society of Oncology (SEOM) has just released a study that highlights the huge disparity in waiting times for newly approved cancer medications between the country’s different autonomous communities.
The time frame from which a groundbreaking treatment is green lighted by Spain’s Ministry of Health to the moment it reaches a cancer patient in hospital varies between 5 to 17 months on average. Photo:AFP

Christmas Market and Dog Show in Nerja Dec 14th: A special fundraiser will be held in Nerja to support APA Nerja, Spain, an animal charity which cares for abandoned and ill-treated animals.
On December 14, a Christmas Market and Dog Show has been organised from 11am at Chiringuito Playazo on Playa Playazo, where attendees can meet dogs and visit stalls offering a host of festive products.
The wonderful event aims to raise money which is urgently needed to pay for vet bills and to keep dogs safe at the animal shelter whilst they wait for their forever homes. Many of the dogs which APA Nerja look after have sadly been abandoned or abused by their owners.

Mountaineering for beginners in Las Alpujarras: “The Poqueira valley is the perfect place to get started in medium- and high-mountain [climbing],” says Jesús Espinoso, founder of the company Nevadensis, which manages the information center at the Sierra Nevada National Park in Pampaneira, and has been guiding groups through the mountain range for 30 years. Pampaneira’s closeness to the Mediterranean Sea calms the weather conditions during a large part of the year. From the Poqueira refuge, which is 2,500 meters above sea level and open year-round, visitors can explore six routes – the circular route that passes by several lagoons, two routes which follow different tracks to the Alcazaba peak (3,364 meters above sea level); one that leads to Veleta peak (3,396 meters) and two others to Mulhacén, although there are more ways to reach the summit. Treks can be tailored to your experience and physical abilities so don’t be shy, let’s discuss the possibilities.
For more info visit http://www.nevadensis.com/ (Spanish)

For Sale: BMW 320i (cabriolet). Regrettably, I’m selling my cherished Spanish registered, full Spanish spec 1999 BMW 320i cabriolet, as it’s been gathering dust for the last year. Only 96,000 km, long ITV. A fantastic car to drive, and in very good condition.
Street price is around €4,000, but sadly the roof need attention. The electric roof has stopped working, hence the low asking price. I’m told the problem is a stripped cog in the roof motor. Someone with the ability, or who knows a decent mechanic can pick one up off eBay for around £70. Price €2,500 or very near offer.

Oil fired boiler engineer: Long shot I know but are there any digamites out there who are or knows one that is an oil fired boiler engineer. The dodgy boiler is a Ferroli Atlas D30K 100 and provides hot water and central heating. It has history. The two issues with it are too difficult to explain here but a quick phone call will be advisory. If anyone can help I would be forever grateful especially if they can fix it.

Some owners of illegal homes still ignored by new law, says SOHA: President Philip Smalley and spokesperson Mario Blancke of SOHA (Save Our Homes Axarquía) have expressed their concern that that the new decree passed in September by the Junta de Andalucía “leaves out people who had their building licences annulled”.
While the campaigners said that they would “always support any initiative taken by the Junta to help legalise homes,” the latest ruling “makes the same mistake as previous ones,” with respect to the annulled licences.
“This time is no different and it leaves out those who bought in good faith and are victims of local authorities, the only entity able to issue the permits,” Blancke said.
The new decree means that the 68,652 properties recognised by the regional government as being irregular can now be registered. However, this still leaves a high number of property owners off the list. “Our fight must continue,” added Blancke.

Dog years are a myth and puppies are middle-aged, scientists claim: Long-held theory canines age seven times faster than humans is wrong, new research suggests. Researchers at the University of California say they have found puppies are middle-aged by the time they are two, with dogs tending to then age more slowly in later life.
By the time they get to three, dogs are roughly equivalent to a 50-year-old human, according to the study. However, ageing slows in dogs over time, meaning that by the age of 10, a labrador is similar to a person aged 68.
