Gibraltar Gov’t Press Release (09 Nov., 2020)- Certain foodstuffs will not be allowed from Gibraltar into Spain in no deal situation:
In the event of no agreement on the future relationship between Gibraltar and the European Union, it will no longer be possible to take certain types of foodstuffs across the border from Gibraltar to Spain. The Government has today issued a Technical Notice on the subject so that the public familiarise themselves with the possible new situation.
As from 1 January 2021, it may no longer be possible for individuals to introduce any quantity of meat, milk, pet-food, or fishery products into the European Union, therefore into Spain. This also includes personal consignments of specific animal products such as honey, live oysters, live mussels and snails unless their combined quantity does not exceed 2KG per person. The details of the new arrangements that would apply are set out in EU law and summarised by the Government in the latest guidance to citizens and businesses.
There are other types of foodstuffs that will be allowed across like bread, cakes, sweets, chocolates, pasta and noodles for example.
Gibraltar left the European Union in January, together with the United Kingdom, and we continue in a period of transition until the end of this year. When we arrive at that point, there will either be agreement on our future relationship with the European Union, including its nearest Member State Spain, or there will be no agreement. The Government want to make it clear that it is working hard to secure an agreement. However, there are important red lines that we will not cross.
Gibraltar’s departure from the European Union means that certain processes and procedures will inevitably become more difficult, cumbersome and bureaucratic. It is important that everyone is aware of this and that, where possible, they plan ahead. The Government can only prepare in areas that are within its control. Even then, there will be certain areas where mitigation is not possible because the new situation simply reflects what it means to be outside the European Union.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max review- The maximum experience:
The 2020 iPhones sport a shiny new design that is more akin to the latest iPad Pro and Air models. Or, if you’re harking back to yesteryear, the iPhone 4 from 2010.
That design change – which sees the buttons, speakers, and Lightning port stay in pretty much the same place as previous years – delivers a number of benefits. The main is that the 12 Pro Max packs in an even bigger screen than the iPhone 11 Pro Max from 2019 – it’s now 6.7-inches compared to 6.5-inches – in a footprint that is roughly the same. It’s an Apple Super Retina XDR display that’s HDR Dolby Vision ready and comes with True Tone technology for adapting the colours to your environment. It’s the same as found on the other models in the iPhone 12 range, just bigger. If you’re counting, the 12 Pro Max is actually a little thinner than its predecessor.
The screen bezel is still present – Apple hasn’t gone all Samsung quite yet – but because of the flat surgical-grade stainless steel band edge around the device, it appears thinner.
Such a large phone that it won’t be to everyone’s liking, but if you want big then this iPhone delivers without making the form-factor awkward to hold or use.
Full verdict-
For: Great cameras, 5G connectivity when you need it, Big and bold screen, Design is large but not awkward & A14 Bionic processing power
Against: Low-light photography enhancements could be better. Much the same experience as the cheaper (and smaller) iPhone 12 Pro. Full article: https://www.pocket-lint.com/phones/reviews/apple/154534-iphone-12-pro-max-review

 

London’s street performers face a crackdown: London’s street performers — the Brits call them “buskers” — are up in arms over a threat to their livelihoods. Their earnings have already taken a beating this year as the number of foreign visitors to the British capital has slumped by three-quarters. And now that the U.K. has entered a second pandemic lockdown, there will be fewer British visitors to the capital in the weeks ahead.
But the buskers are incensed for another reason. A local authority — Westminster City Council — is planning to curb street entertainment in the West End because, the council says, some of the buskers are noisy, anti-social, and in some cases, downright dangerous. The council is proposing to cut the number of sites where the buskers can perform, to impose a licensing and insurance system and to ban certain equipment that it regards as unsafe.

Look Out! Here Comes Your Spanish Big Brother: Spain to monitor online fake news and give a ‘political response’ to disinformation campaigns. The government will be the arbiter of what constitutes such stories with no representatives from the media or journalist associations involved in the process.
That’s according to the “Procedure for Intervention against Disinformation,” (that even sounds scary, straight out of 1984, no? -Ed.) which was approved last month by the country’s National Security Council and was published on Thursday in the Official State Gazette (BOE).
The document makes provisions for the possibility of carrying out communication campaigns in order to counter fake news stories, albeit stopping short of censoring them. It leaves in the hands of the government the authority to decide what exactly constitutes misinformation. The protocol updates one that has been in place since March 2019, but that was not made public, and regulates an activity that began under the previous government. PHOTO:Twitter@gmoreaubooks.

Andalusia advances the curfew at 10 p.m. and extends until 7 a.m.: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es} Updated 08/11/2020 17:33h
Andalusia will extend the curfew from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. , so it will last two hours longer than the current one.
This was announced by Moreno in an informative appearance after presiding in the Palacio de San Telmo the meeting of the Advisory Committee on High Impact Public Health Alerts to analyze the evolution of the pandemic in a day in which 3,755 positive cases and 20 deaths and the number of hospitalized has dropped for the second consecutive day to 3,151 while ICU admissions have risen to 455.
The Chairman of the Board has also communicated the decision to maintain the perimeter closure until November 23 of the community and continue with the schools and institutes open throughout Andalusia, while the university decides to implement the activity online except in the practices and experimentation.
The closure of all non-essential activity after 6 pm will be more demanding in the province of Granada, where the serious incidence of the pandemic forces the complete closure of all non-essential activity and Moreno has recommended that citizens «only leave for what strictly necesary”.
The previous decree maintained the limitation of night mobility with the “curfew” time between 11:00 pm and 6:00 am, already set in the state of alarm decree. Likewise, it was established that as of midnight, meetings in the public and private sphere were limited to a maximum of six people, except those groups that are living together.

Andalusia only has 30% of the hospital beds free, and in the eight days that go into the month of November, 315 people have died due to Covid, a serious and worrying situation that has led the President of the Board, Juanma Moreno, to announce very tough measures that will take effect at 12 o’clock tomorrow night, Monday and will apply until 23 November.
The main one is that all activities non-essential will have to close their doors at 6 in the afternoon, it is forbidden to leave the municipality of residence and the curfew is extended: no one may be on the streets between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. The perimeter closure of the Andalusian autonomous community is also maintained.
Classes in colleges and institutes will continue to be face-to-face , even in the afternoon shifts, but the university completely changes the scene. His classes will be only telematically although the practices and activities of the laboratories are maintained.
It is important to note that the Andalusian Government is studying what to do with the opposition to the Board called for next weekend. As explained by the president, they are looking for large enough spaces but, if they are not found, they would be postponed .
The situation is common for all of Andalusia except for Granada where the Junta has decreed the total closure of all non-essential activities. “The situation is especially delicate because it has a rate of 1,194 cases per hundred thousand inhabitants, higher than that registered by communities such as Navarra, Aragón or La Rioja, which are the ones in the worst conditions,” explained President Juanma Moreno who has made a special call to the people of Granada.
“I ask you to stay at home and only go out for what is strictly necessary because we have to cut this virus as quickly as possible.” In this sense, all social events are prohibited because there is “a serious danger from health stress that has never been experienced before.” Granada, together with Seville, are the provinces with the highest number of hospitalized.
The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno , has decided and announced these new limitations after the meeting of the committee of experts convened this Sunday in the palace of San Telmo, in which the evolution of the data of the pandemic in the community. Andalusia is slightly above the Spanish average for infections .
Medical alert
From the General Directorate of Public Health and Pharmaceutical Management, a circular has been sent to the staff of Andalusian health centers in which it is urged to take extreme measures of social distancing, use of a mask and cleaning of hands, in addition to suppressing “any type of social encounter that derives from the professional and / or social activity even more within the managerial centers ». Doctors and nurses are recommended to have breakfast and lunch alone in the face of the “extreme situation” in which we find ourselves and which translates into a lethality very worrying of the pandemic. In November, 315 Andalusians died from coronavirus.

UK honors war dead in scaled-back Remembrance Sunday service: In a scaled-back service, Queen Elizabeth II led tributes Sunday to those from the U.K. and the Commonwealth who perished in wartime, as most veterans paid their respects at home as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The public were unable to attend this year, with the event taking place during a second national lockdown in England, and were instead encouraged to take part in the two-minute silence at home.
In other years, the commemoration is packed with thousands of veterans and military personnel. In Sunday’s service, there were less than 30 veterans in attendance and everyone present observed social distancing rules though mask wearing wasn’t mandatory in the outdoor setting.
Though the service was very different, people up and down the land took time out to honor the war dead. Small services were permitted. PHOTO:Aaron Chown, Pool Photo via AP.

The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

Online streaming giants face rise in tax to fund Spanish productions: Spain is preparing legislation that would impose a 5.0 percent tax on streaming giants like Netflix with the funds used to boost Spanish cinematic production, the government said on Friday. (Of course these companies will simply pass on the expense to their customers, so expect a rise in your IPTV bills next year. -Ed.)
Global giants such as Amazon, Google and Netflix often pay very little tax in nations where they are not physically present, presenting a major challenge for many countries.
Early last month, the Spanish government gave final approval to a 3.0 percent tax on revenues generated by digital giants such as Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon which will come into effect within three months.

US Presidental Election 2020- The Press Declares Biden The Winner, But Will The Electoral College Agree? {by Naythan} Regardless of who you support for US President you’ll need to be patient. The media giants are prematurely claiming a Biden victory before a single Electoral College vote has been cast. This is the same mistake that occurred in the last US presidental election, when Hillary Clinton was declared by the media giants to be the winner based on the popular vote, which turned out to be incorrect as the Electoral College elected Trump. Four other presidents have won the Electoral College vote after losing the popular vote: Bush (2000), Harrison, Hayes and J.Q. Adams. Remember, in the American system’s Electoral College, 18 states still have not passed laws requiring Electoral College members to follow the popular vote! In any case, there are recounts, fraudulent voting software and still uncounted votes remaining to be sorted out. Votes may be disqualified in areas where there were more votes cast than registered voters. Postmark fraud has been alleged. Registered official voting observers, with court orders allowing them access in hand, were denied access to vote counting rooms and have filed in court to have those unmonitored ballots rejected or recounted. At least one court has declared mail-in votes uncounted by the end of Election Day be isolated for analysis. So many loose ends remain. Biden may well have won the popular vote, but that still is yet to be determined, and it certainly does not make him the President Elect. So when will we know the results of the Electoral College vote? On January 6, 2021 at the “Joint Session of Congress to Count Electoral Votes and Declare Election Results”.

Due to the new Curfew, to avoid disappointment I suggest you call to confirm events and times before the event. -Ed.

The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

Andalucian president says he will announce fresh restrictions on Sunday: The regional president, Juanma Moreno, told the Andalucian parliament on Thursday this week (5 November) that he was getting ready to announce new restrictions on Sunday for the region, starting from Monday (9 November). However he stopped short of saying what they would be.
On Sunday, the national government’s nighttime curfew order expires and it is left to each of Spain’s devolved regions to decide what to do locally. “If the figures from now to Sunday don’t evolve, it’s my responsibility to take decisions,” explained Moreno, saying he would meet with his committee of experts first. Full article: http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202011/06/andalusian-president-says-will-20201106015915.html  (Editorial note- The regional president, Juanma Moreno has limited tools available to tighten the existing controls. One thing he can do, and this has been covered here in earlier articles on this topic, is to force businesses to close even earlier than 11pm. He has discussed closing business in the afternoon, allowing “morning business” only. This will do huge damage to all businesses who rely on afternoon and evening customer traffic. If you disagree with an earlier business curfew you only have TODAY to contact the Andalucian authorities let them know how you feel. DigameXtra does not take a position on this matter, this is posted for informational purposes only. -Ed.)

 

Spain sets seven-day record for Covid deaths in second wave:
The number of victims over the last week came in at 1,002 in the latest Health Ministry report, double the figure from one month ago. The infection rate, meanwhile, is starting to slow.
Of these fatalities, 368 were reported in the previous 24 hours. This is the first time in this phase of the pandemic that the former data point has exceeded 1,000. A month ago, on October 5, the number was 366. The total death toll now stands at 38,846. Given that rising Covid deaths reflect a rise in cases from several weeks ago, the number of fatalities is likely to continue increasing given where new infections were headed at that time.

Sweden and Germany removed from England’s travel corridors:
Passengers arriving into the UK from Germany and Sweden from 4am on Saturday 7 November 2020 will need to self-isolate for 2 weeks before then following domestic rules.
In England, everyone must stay at home, and may leave only for a very limited set of reasons, including for work or education. This means people can no longer travel to take holidays, or travel internationally – unless for work or other legally permitted reasons. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has updated its travel advice to reflect this.
Fixed penalties starting at £200 will be given to those found not following the rules, but these fines will double for subsequent offences, up to a maximum of £6,400. Full article: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/germany-and-sweden-removed-from-travel-corridor-list-of-exempt-countries

 

Why you will soon have to drive slower in cities in Spain:
Spain’s traffic authority plans to lower the generic speed limit in urban areas from 50km/h to 30km/h to counteract the dramatic rise in accidents in recent years caused largely by delivery vehicles.

Update Your iOS Devices Now- 3 Active Exploits Discovered:
Apple on Thursday released multiple security updates to patch three zero-day vulnerabilities that were revealed as being actively exploited in the wild.
Rolled out as part of its iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS updates, the flaws reside in the FontParser component and the kernel, allowing adversaries to remotely execute arbitrary code and run malicious programs with kernel-level privileges.
The list of impacted devices includes iPhone 5s and later, iPod touch 6th and 7th generation, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 and later, and Apple Watch Series 1 and later.
The fixes are available in versions iOS 12.4.9 and 14.2, iPadOS 14.2, watchOS 5.3.9, 6.2.9, and 7.1, and as a supplemental update for macOS Catalina 10.15.7. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2020/11/update-your-ios-devices-now-3-actively.html

Spanish government to wait ‘two or three weeks’ before taking tougher coronavirus measures: The Health Ministry maintains that more time must pass to assess whether the current restrictions, such as the nighttime curfew and perimetral lockdown, are working.
The health chief of Andalucia, Jesús Aguirre, has asked for “clear and unified criteria” for a home lockdown, adding that the government must “act as soon as possible before the evolution of the pandemic with a legislative development for confinement, be it in a healthcare area, province or region in general.” Full article:

Spain adds 1,326 coronavirus deaths to official count due to methodology change: On Wednesday, the Health Ministry added 1,326 fatalities to the official tally, including 297 that were registered over the last 24 hours – a record of Spain’s second wave. Deaths from Covid-19 officially stand at 38,118, although the real figure is much higher because thousands of people died without getting tested during the first wave of the pandemic, in March and April. (Conversely, some Covid attributed deaths may have been due to pre-existing conditions or the regular flu. -Ed.)

The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

US Election 2020- Too Close To Call: https://nypost.com/2020/11/03/2020-presidential-election-results-map-live-updates-from-across-us/

 

The Board proposes to advance the curfew in Andalucia in the afternoon to stop the coronavirus: {Translated from https://seville.abc.es} Updated: 11/4/2020 17: 38h
The president of the Board, Juanma Moreno , has indicated that the measure he opts for limiting mobility in order to stop the advance of the coronavirus is the closure of economic activity in the afternoon . This has been pointed out by the Andalusian president, who has explained that the bulk of economic activity occurs from seven in the morning until three in the afternoon.
With that schedule in mind, Moreno has indicated that the measure of restricting the activity would be from the night backwards. It ie advancing the mandatory closure of shops , which is now set at 22.30 pm . However, the Andalusian president has not specified which would be the new bands where economic activity would be prohibited.
“The only measure we can do is to go from bottom to top,” explained Moreno, advancing that schedule and “restricting activity from below, that is, from the night, so as not to hurt morning productivity.” They are measures, Moreno has indicated, “that do harm” to the economy but the prediction of deaths from coronavirus that the president has on the table predicts a tightening of the limitations.
On the other hand, and to analyze this week’s data, the Chairman of the Board has indicated that this Sunday he will meet with the committee of experts . In this meeting, they will study whether are applied in Andalusia, “stricter” measures including the home confinement of citizens. However, Moreno has insisted, this is the “last option” that you want to apply in the community.
The president has acknowledged that the situation is “frankly worrying” , noting that Granada’s figures have soared behind the bridge. In this sense, he pointed out that if the data is maintained “we have no choice but to limit mobility and timetables from bottom to top”, that is, if necessary, extend the curfew towards the afternoon , “not to damage more to morning productivity, which is the one with the highest peak of activity.
“These are measures that harm the productive fabric, but we have no alternative but to limit mobility if we do not want to go to home confinement ,” said Moren, who explained that the Board works “to find the balance between health and tourism sector, the most damaged by the pandemic.

Pants down and facemasks on Trump and Biden go head to head in Spain’s bizarre Christmas tradition: The pair are competing to appear on top of the best seller list of this year’s caganer figurines, a bizarre Christmas tradition in the Spanish region of Catalonia. Known as “caganers” – which translates as “poopers” or “crappers” in English – the clay figurines area popular nativity scene decoration in Catalonia, where a defecating figure perched behind Mary and Joseph is said to symbolize fertilization, as well as bringing luck and prosperity for the year ahead. Visit any Catalan home at Christmas and you will find what appears to be an interloper hiding among the traditional figures around the crib in the nativity scene.

Bitcoin Pumped Above $14K As Trump Becomes Betting Favorite to Win Elections: Bitcoin broke above the coveted $14,000 mark on Saturday for the first time since January 2018. Since then, though, the asset has primarily struggled with maintaining its high price tag.
In fact, BTC even dipped below $13,300 on two occasions in the following days. It started recovering yesterday when it jumped above $13,500 and stayed above it for most of the past 24 hours.
Just a few hours ago, the primary cryptocurrency headed higher once more. With a few decisive candles, Bitcoin surged to $14,050 (on Bitstamp) before retracing to its current level – $13,800.

UPDATED- The Lockdown Rumour Mill: There is a lot of talk going around on radio programs and Fakebook suggesting Andalucia is headed back to Home Confinement. Do not believe the rumours, only the National Gov’t can declare home confinement. That requires a vote, so we will have advance notice if such a vote is scheduled. There should be an official update later this week, or early next week when they must review/renew the curfew.

UK records 397 COVID deaths, highest daily toll since May: The United Kingdom reported 397 new deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, the highest daily figure since May 27, as the government prepares to introduce a national lockdown in England to stop a wave of infections threatening the health service.
The UK, which has the biggest official death toll in Europe from COVID-19, is grappling with more than 20,000 new coronavirus cases a day. Scientists have warned a worst-case scenario of 80,000 dead could be exceeded this winter.
Tuesday’s figure raised the total number of people who have died in the United Kingdom within 28 days of testing positive for the new coronavirus since the start of the pandemic to 47,250.

Terrorism threat level in Britain raised to ‘severe’: (Reuters, updated Nov. 3, 2020, 5:23 PM) – Britain’s terrorism threat level has been raised to ‘severe’ as a precaution following attacks in France and Austria, interior minister Priti Patel said on Tuesday.
The change, which means an attack is now seen as highly likely, comes the day after a gunman in Vienna identified as a convicted jihadist killed four people in a rampage overnight. France has also suffered three attacks in recent weeks.
“This is a precautionary measure following the terrible instances that we’ve seen in France last week, and the events that we saw in Austria last night,” Patel said in a televised statement
She said the public should not be alarmed and that the change in threat level was not based on any specific threat.
The new threat level means an attack is highly likely, according to the government’s classification system. The previous ‘substantial’ level meant an attack was likely.

WhatsApp integrates option to free up storage quickly: If you are an active user, you may have noticed that WhatsApp is using a lot of space on the device. Much of it comes from chat data, media files, and other files that get transferred between users or in WhatsApp groups. It was not practicable up until now to delete data from within the application to free up space.
Manage Storage is a new feature that provides an easy and straightforward cleaning option. Just select Manage Storage in the settings and either get rid of all data or selectively to free up space. Since you always see what you will delete, it is easy to decide whether something needs to stay or can go.

Recommendations & Requests

 

A recommendation for Car Clean Malaga listed in the Sponsor Section below: After many years living in the campo and driving a dusty track then this year moving house our car had become neglected and dirty, added to the typical bumps and scratches it was looking sad.
We contacted Car Clean and are amazed at the result after they did their work. Our car is now shiny and looking fabulous, the headlights paint work and interior are looking great.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #84 – Computer Info & Preparing for the Possible New Lockdown, by DoctorLaptop:
-Computers, and especially laptops, are in very short supply due to international shipping restrictions not replenishing inventories. Both new and used models in the low to mid price ranges have all been bought up with so many people now working and studying from home. Just look at Amazon UK, most computers by major manufacturers under €500 are out of stock, and those that remain have doubled in price over the past few months, may have a delivery time of 8+ weeks, or are 8+yrs old. The off-brands you never heard of, while less expensive and more available, are best avoided. Even if you are willing to accept a Spanish keyboard, the local big-box stores have very little on offer in the low to middle price range. Keep in mind, if you are doing tele-conferencing, ZOOM, online classes & work, Team Viewer, Skype, etc, a low budget model is likely to provide disappointing results. You’ll want a minimum 8Gb RAM and a processor speed of no less than 1.8GHz for reliable, good quality performance doing these resource-intensive activities.
-Since laptops have become central to most people’s lives when locked down, I highly recommend you keep your current laptops properly maintained; if you have not had a proper maintenance service done in the past year, do it asap. If we get locked down again and you have computer problems you may not be able to deliver it to me for repairs. A proper servicing is the best way to avoid breakdowns.
-Basic guideline is if you use your computer 2 hrs a day, get it serviced annually, especially if you do online banking and shopping. Or learn to service it yourself, there are many YouTube tutorial videos available. Look for recently posted videos, old videos will contain obsolete info as the malware world constantly evolves. Always make a Restore Point and backup your data before running maintenance tools (except CCleaner, no need to make a backup before using CCleaner’s basic cleanup functions, but making a Restore Point before running CCleaner is still a good idea).
-If you are relying on an old laptop, you need to know the life expectancy of recent laptops is only 4-5 yrs. Keeping them maintained properly can extend that another few years. Installing a new Hard Drive and installing a fresh copy of Windows and adding more RAM all can bring great performance improvements in older models. Even Microsoft recommends reinstalling Windows after 5 years.
-The new Win 10 update v20H2 is being released here now. I have installed it in 2 computers, it took over 3hrs in both cases and it restarted itself 3 times in the process, so be patient. Under no circumstances force it off after the update process has begun!!! To do so will very likely render the computer unbootable and in need of a full reinstall of Windows. You MUST wait for it to finish, either successfully or with an error message that the update failed and the old system has been restored. Either way, the computer should still be usable.
-If you are in need of a computer and cannot locate a laptop in English, consider a Desktop/Tower/MiniPC where you can supply whatever keyboard you like. Changing the Windows 10 system language from Spanish to other languages is very simple, see YouTube videos for the method. The new MiniPCs are as powerful as mid level laptops but are as small as a TV Box! I am currently testing a few models and will soon have some for sale.
-Good news for Apple Users, sort of: The latest Mac OS 14  has implemented enhanced “sandboxing” of apps, a way of isolating apps each in their own independent, sealed space, to prevent malware installing and blocking apps from  interferring with each other. This enhancement may be a good idea. Sandboxing in Mac systems has been around since 2012 in various forms, we’ll see in time how effective it is against new “fileless” and “pixel based” malware. However, these new enhancements now render all maintenance tools like Malwarebytes For Mac, Saphos Tools, and CCleaner For Mac useless, since they now cannot scan outside their “sandbox” for malware or rubbish files to clean out. Macs with OS 14 still need maintenence. Users will have to do it manually rather than rely on apps to do the work for us. Rubbish files and data still build up over time, and caches should still be purged regularly. Permissions may require renewal. Rogue apps are another Mac threat that manage to sneak their way into your system even if you are careful, they are very good at tricking users into installing them; these must be identified and deleted.

Spain has recorded third-highest coronavirus fatality rate in Europe since July: Only Romania and the Czech Republic have registered more Covid-19 deaths per inhabitant. If the trend continues, there will be 8,000 more official victims by Christmas.
Spain has added 7,100 coronavirus fatalities to the official death toll since July. This equates to 15 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants – the third-highest fatality rate per 100,000 inhabitants in Europe. In Germany, this figure is 10 times lower, and in Italy, it is just one-third of the rate in Spain. Portugal (eight), France (nine) and Belgium (12) are the European countries with the closest fatality rate per 100,000 inhabitants. What’s more, Spain reported an average of 150 daily Covid-19 related fatalities last week, making the virus the leading cause of death.

Juan Marín- “Spain is on the path of France or Portugal, confinement may arrive in the next few days”: {First 3 paragraphs of the article, transated from https://seville.abc.es} Updated: 02/11/2020 18:26h
The vice president and counselor for Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration of the Junta de Andalucía, Juan Marín , has opined this Monday that Spain “is on the path” that neighboring countries such as France, Germany or Portugal are following , which already announced confinements among their population to reduce the spread of Covid-19, which is why they fear that “in the coming days, those decisions may reach” this country.
In an interview on TVE, collected by Europa Press, Marín has been convinced that any decision that can be taken to stop Covid-19 “will be understood by the public”, so that “if the contagion of Covid-19 and hospital pressure, I would not rule out any scenario. We already suffered from confinement from March to June, if I had to return, it will always be based on the criteria of experts in Andalucia, and I hope that in the whole of the country,” he added.

Illa rules out the home confinement requested by Asturias and asks “not to enter a competition”: {Full article transated from https://seville.abc.es} Updated: 02/11/2020 19: 36h
For the second time since last Friday, the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, has publicly ruled out decreeing a home confinement in the coming days to stop coronavirus infections. “We are not working on it, nor do we foresee it,” he said this Monday.
The minister has thus rejected the request made this Monday by the Government of Asturias, which has asked the Executive for a home confinement for 15 days. The Principality yesterday raised its alert level to the maximum by exceeding 400 infections per hundred thousand inhabitants and seeing its hospitals and intensive care units at record levels of occupation.
However, Health trusts that with the measures included in the new state of alarm it will be possible to control the evolution of the pandemic, for which Illa has asked “not to enter into a kind of competition to see who takes the toughest measure.” “We think that with the range of measures that are available to the authorities of the Autonomous Communities to be able to act is enough,” he assured.
More and more communities are pointing to the need for home confinement, already adopted in European countries such as France or Portugal. Specifically, last week the first to request it was Castilla y León, and then Catalonia. But on that occasion, the two regions indicated that they will have to observe the evolution of the pandemic in the next two weeks. If the curfew or the perimeter confinements do not work, then it would be necessary to go to more restrictive models according to the two autonomies.
The proposal of the President of the Principality of Asturias, Adrián Barbón, goes further, since he asks the Ministry of Health to speed up the legal measures necessary to be able to implement home confinement. Asturias has also agreed to close as of this Wednesday “all non-essential economic activity” and establish a curfew at ten at night, two hours before the current one.
The minister, for now, asks for “temperance.” With this pandemic we have seen that things do not happen overnight. When you take measurements, it takes 10-15 days to see results. Therefore, we must have a point of temperance and know how to wait the necessary time to be able to see the effects of very drastic measures, and not enter into a kind of competition to see who takes the hardest measure,”he emphasized.

Curfew in Italy- Everything stops at 9 p.m.: Italy is introducing curfew on the entire territory from 9 pm to morning, this was confirmed for Sky TG 24 by Deputy Labor Minister Francesca Puglisi. The new measure, which the Prime Minister will explain to the parliament today, envisages a ban on interregional movements, and all those who have to travel or be on the street after curfew for any reason, must have a personal certificate of justification to be out of the house.
“Unfortunately, we have to sacrifice direct teaching, and lessons will be taught online for all high school students, and it has not yet been decided whether lower elementary school students will follow classes from home,” Deputy Minister of Labor Puglisi said.
Also, the new measure envisages a reduction of city traffic by 50 percent, shopping centers will be closed on weekends, museums, bars, video game halls and exhibitions will be closed. Full article: https://www.b92.net/eng/news/world.php?nav_id=109577

 

The Last Concert?: Nearly 60 concert halls from all over Spain have decided to join together through the initiative ‘The last concert?’ in which several artists will play from each of these rooms in a festival that will be broadcast on November 18, streaming, starting at 8:00 p.m.
With this initiative, the concert halls intend raise your voice again at the “most critical, turbulent and uncertain” moment for live music, with practically 100% of them closed for eight months due to the coronavirus health crisis.
“The situation is unsustainable and if the administrations do not take far-reaching measures in the short or immediate term, it is very likely that most of the venues in the country will face ‘The Last Concert’ in 2020. The rooms urgently need a rescue plan or the hibernation of fixed costs, to be able to resist and continue offering live music when the health situation allows it, “they say.
Full story: https://spainsnews.com/the-last-concert-a-desperate-chant-against-the-coronavirus-crisis/  (Unless we get the Covid under control, I predict that in the future when you buy a ticket to a concert, you will not actually attend the show in person, you’ll attend on-line. Your ticket will provide you a web link to audio/video streams from microphones and cameras mounted in the seat your ticket is for. You’ll be able to watch it in the comfort of your home, adjusting the sound to your liking, and the video will provide a 360 degree view, zooming in and out at will. Maybe they will mail you a teeshirt as part of the deal. The seat will also have a big screen built in, so you can have your webcam feeding your image to the seat, then “attendees” will be able to “see” each other. In this way the musicians will be able to see the virtual audience. No more parking hassle, or tall people blocking your view. No violence or viruses to worry about. Invite your friends over to watch, free of screaming fans and people talking over the music. The shows will cost far less to produce, and the fans will save travel expenses and outrageous concession costs. Makes sense in a scary kinda way, no? It’s already begun in professional sports entertainment, see the video! -Ed.)
