February
–7th Trip To Gib €12pp
-9th Trip to Ardales Pueblo for the Feast of La Matanza. €15pp. Departing Algarrobo Lidl at 10.30 and returning from Ardales at 17.00. Here is some info on the festival which promises to be a good day out feasting on 1000kg delicacies made from pork and all free. The local cuisine of the interior makes the province of Málaga stand out for preserving its identity up until nowadays. Olive oil or wine are some of the most widely claimed products in the last few years. However, the products derived from the pig are now becoming more and more popular. For centuries, they have been an essential element in the pantry of every village household. For more than a decade, Ardales—located in the Guadalteba Valley—has been paying homage to the traditional elaboration of sausages and pork meats by celebrating the Fiesta de la Matanza day. This day allows visitors to learn how sausages and other meat products used to be made, for which local women recreate the traditional methods with ancient tools. There is a local saying that goes, “Del cerdo, hasta los andares”, and the reality is that absolutely every part of the pig is used as it is all so good, especially if it has been reared in and around the village.
-21st Trip to Almeria city. Price €29pp includes Guided tour & coach fare.
All our trips include the driver’s gratuity of €1.

WindscribeVPN Pro and Free Versions: WHILE NORD AND EXPRESS VPNs BOTH SUFFERED MASSIVE DATA BREACHES RECENTLY, WINDSCRIBE REMAINS ONE OF THE ONLY MAJOR VPNs TO NOT GET HACKED! GET IT NOW! For Windows, Mac, Linux, plus now Android and iOS Apps (NEW)! Windscribe (Canada) provides access to 480+ servers in 51 countries in the Pro Version. Both versions are very fast. Pro version is IPTV, Netflix and P2P friendly! Very simple install and setup. Comes with both System-wide VPN and also a browser plug-in VPN. Static IP addresses available. No risk- three day cash back refund test period. A free version (not for IPTV) is available providing servers in USA, UK, CAN, FR, NOR, SWISS, GER, NL,  Hong Kong & Romania.  Windscribe sponsors DigameXtra, making a modest donation for every VPN purchased, but only if you use this red link.  Click to Get Windscribe VPN Free and Pro Recommended by DoctorLaptop! As I recently demonstrated to several computer clients, on a 100Mb connection and using the same server location on both VPNs, Canada-based Windscribe Pro VPN tested at 90Mb for both download and upload, while Panama-based Nord Pro VPN tested at only 30Mb download and only 5Mb upload! Don’t take my word for it. From tech review site PixelPrivacy.com: “NordVPN’s Tested Speed: 17.90Mbps average download speed.” “NordVPN’s connection speeds are slow when compared to the speeds of other VPNs.” https://pixelprivacy.com/vpn/nordvpn-review/

Recommendations

Thank you to Archgrove Services: I’d like to thank Steve and Gail of Archgrove Services for their wonderful service. Not only did they expertly pack all of our belongings (they brought their own sturdy packaging materials), they then transported everything 2,640km to our home in the North of England exactly when they said they would. Steve and Gail were absolutely professional, caring about every little detail, efficient, extremely personable and the cost was surprisingly reasonable. For months I’d been dreading what had seemed like a daunting task but these lovely people made it all very easy. I’d thoroughly recommend them; thanks guys! (Look in the Sponsor’s Section at the bottom of the issue for Archgrove’s contact info. -Ed.)

Two decades of life as a comic filtered through what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘the brainiest comic of his generation’.

Natterbox: Hi Digamites, Somebody recently told me that it is unlucky to wish people a Happy New Year too long after January 1st, so, just in case, this is NOT a New Years’ greeting!
In November last year, I started a group called ‘Natterbox’, which I described as ‘a short cut to friendships’. Since then, we have had several enjoyable evenings together where we have met up simply to ‘have a good old natter’, what might also be called the ‘art of good conversation’.
Natterbox is an informal group, with no regular meetings, no fixed topics or agendas, to be used by members to meet up spontaneously, in pairs or more, whenever the fancy takes them. So, if for instance you arrive in Spain only to find that few of your existing friends are around at that moment, you would be able to contact people in the Natterbox WhatsApp group to see if they fancy a coffee or a copa! Or perhaps several people you know have decided to return to their home country, and you would like to get to know others, then this may appeal to you.
Our members are currently equally divided between living in Nerja & Torrox, so get-togethers have so far centred around either of those locations. As more people join who might live in other areas, we may choose to venture to other parts.
Please contact me to express interest, & tell me a little about yourself, including where you are based in Spain.
Look forward to hearing from you.

SmileDirectClub- Teeth Straightening System: This company, with a large Facebook presence, says it will fix your smile. It may shush you if it doesn’t. At $1,850, the products are cheaper than braces, and get mixed reviews. “When some of the customers requested refunds, SmileDirectClub asked them to sign the confidentiality provision. The agreement prohibited the customers from telling anyone about the refund and required them to delete negative social media comments and reviews…”. In addition to linking confidentiality to refunds, the company sued the parent of the popular website Lifehacker.com last year for defamation and libel over an article that outlined the risks of its products. If you have considered this system you should read this article:

Kick’em Jenny & the Real Untameds at El Bar de Las Motos:
Sunday, February 2, 2020 at 5:30 PM
On Sunday, February 2, we present Jenny Giglio, one of those artists from the Rockin ‘scene who leaves no one indifferent.
Whoever has seen it act will fully understand the description we will make of it. Wild, daring, dazzling, sexy…A real Rockabilly volcano. Showing on the stage an attitude similar to what many define as “Rockabilly Rules”, hoarse voice, reminiscent of the matchless Wanda Jackson, a well-beaten acoustic guitar and a nearby beer. In their performances they play both their own songs composed by her, as well as a cast of the best of “obscure rockabilly”.
Not surprisingly, his artistic nickname is taken from an active underwater volcano near the Island of Granada, in the West Indies, the “Kick’ em Jenny ”. Do not miss it, as always, in the best atmosphere, at El Bar de Las Motos. We wait for you.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #80:
-Parents Need To Know About Tiktok: Why don’t kids use Facebook anymore? Oh, they may when they know you are watching. As soon as you’re gone they switch. Besides the rebelous attitude of “I don’t wanna be like my parents” and “Facebook is for Boomers”, the real reason is they don’t want their parents cyber-stalking them by monitoring their FB posts. Kids were using Instagram and Snapchat for their parent-free social media and messaging in recent years. Some parents caught on. Now the kids are moving to TikTok, a site where they can message each other and share 15-60 second video clips (remember their attention spans) free of parental control. Unfortunately there are dangers, adult content and creepy strangers lurking. Kids may take chances meeting new people if it gains them more “followers” and “builds their on-line presence.”  You need to educate yourself and speak with them regarding Tiktok. Please visit this website so you know exactly what risks your children may be exposed to.

-Toshiba laptop owners. Toshiba recently sold it’s laptop division to Sharp Corp. as part of a settlement resulting from a huge 2015 corporate scandal. Toshiba laptops are now re-branded as Dynabook. The official Toshiba laptop website address now redirects you to the Dynabook website. Reference: https://www.anandtech.com/show/14168/dynabook-the-new-name-of-toshibas-pcs

BREAKING: Deadly coronavirus reaches Europe with France confirming 2 cases.
The first was in Bordeaux while the second was in a suburb of Paris.
What is the coronavirus?
According to the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), coronaviruses are common worldwide and can cause mild to moderate diseases in people and in some instances be fatal.
Coronaviruses are types of viruses that typically affect the respiratory tract of mammals, including humans. They are associated with the common cold, pneumonia and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and can also affect the gut. According to health studies, patients who present symptoms that include fever, a cough, shortness of breath and muscle pain should seek medical help immediately.

UK Driver Licences Info: In the event BREXIT goes ahead, the UK will no longer belong to the European Union, so that all traffic agreements within the framework of the EU will no longer be valid for citizens of the UK. Among other things, this means that the permissions from the UK will only be valid for driving in Spain during the first 9 months of the BREXIT, provided they are in force.
If you want to continue driving in our country, you must make an exchange (approval), renewal or replacement of your permission by one Spanish equivalent, must deliver the original.
The DGT launches a protocol that you can make the exchange, renewal or replacement of your permission in the UK for the Spanish equivalent in the same preconditions to the BREXIT, without having to wait for the signing of a new agreement between countries or having to obtain a new Spanish driving license.
For this you must be holder of a driving license in the UK, have habitual residence in Spain and submit the application before the January 31, 2020. Thus, whatever happens that day, you guarantee that we address you to make the exchange of your license for a period of 9 months from the date of the BREXIT.
At the time of the proceedings will be withdrawn the original permit and give you a provisional permit (paper, only good in Spain). Approximately within a month and a half have your final permit.
Remember: You must perform extraordinary redemption request, renovació or replacement before the January 31, 2020.

Malaga Monsoon Threatens Goya Awards: The Goya Awards, to be held in Malaga Saturday afternoon, is overshadowed by the threat of torrential rain.
And the forecast is that until the very end of the day, the bad weather will continue. The Spanish Agency of Meteorology (Aemet) activated a yellow alert for the Costa del Sol, Guadalhorce and Malaga. The alert is maintained since yesterday when the Orange alert was activated for up to 30 litres per square metre in one hour, and the emergency plan was activated for the area.
Although icy temperatures are expected, inside the Jose Maria Martin Carmena Sports Palace the temperature will be charged with several musical shows ready to ignite the atmosphere. Among them, Antonio Banderas who will bring his musical A Chorus Line to the gala. Also performing will be Britain’s Jamie Cullum, Ana Mena, Rayden, Amaia and Celia Flores amongst others.

Freak storm causes traffic chaos and leaves Malaga residents knee-deep in hailstones: At around 6.45am heavy rain and thunder and lightning gave way to hailstones that settled where they fell, covering streets, parks and beaches in white.
In Limonar, a residential area east of the city centre, the hailstones formed a layer of up to 30 centimetres deep, bringing traffic to a standstill and preventing residents from leaving their homes. Photo:GERMÁN POZO

Pets

Abandoned cats: Can anyone help please? A neighbour recently died from a heart attack. She left 8 young cats and kittens which were then left to fend for themselves. during the last storms I gave them food and made a warm dry shelter for them to sleep and shelter from the cold and biting winds. Two of the kittens were tiny and undernourished and one had lost an eye, but I managed to nurse them to health. Three needed treatment for parasites and are now cured. These little creatures are now healthy and fît and deserve to be in loving homes. I have to leave Spain very soon, and am desperate to change their situation. Are there any Digamites who can help in any way? Thank you in anticipation.

“We have medication that prevents breast cancer, yet nobody uses it”: “In Spain we have good basic research, but that is not an end in itself, it has to help patients”. Spanish oncology expert Miguel Martín wants to see state-funded research in treatments that the pharmaceutical industry ignores because they are not financially profitable.

Expect a wave of fake Microsoft tech-service scam contacts: If you have ever contacted Microsoft for support in the past 14 years, your technical query, along with some personally identifiable information might have been compromised.
Microsoft today admitted a security incident that exposed nearly 250 million “Customer Service and Support” (CSS) records on the Internet due to a misconfigured server containing logs of conversations between its support team and customers. By having real sensitive case information and email addresses of affected customers in hand, the leaked data could be abused by tech-support scammers to trick users into paying for non-existent computer problems by impersonating Microsoft support representatives.

Spain’s Malaga Clínico ER Slammed For Keeping Patients Waiting For Up To 58 Hours: A typical conflict. Patients, workers and unions claim the system has “collapsed”, the management denies everything. Who to believe?
After these criticisms came to light, the SAS (Andalusian Health Service) decided to facilitate 42 more beds and reinforce the emergency care of the hospital with 25 more workers.
But for CSIF (The Independent Trade Union and Officials’ Central for the Autonomous Union of Andalusia) both the extra 42 beds and additional staff at the Clínico fell short observing that “In the early hours of this Wednesday there were already seven stretchers in the corridors.”

Ayahuasca and toad venom fueled retreats gain popularity in Spain: An inside look at the drug-fueled “personal growth” weekends being provided at a Madrid villa. In a villa in Fuente el Saz de Jarama, in the northeast of the Madrid region, an “inner evolution retreat” run by a group known as the Inner Mastery International takes place. The retreat promises to bring about “personal transformation” with the help of ayahuasca (an entheogenic brew from the Amazon basin) as well as kambó and bufo alvarius, two types of toad venom. https://elpais.com/elpais/2020/01/16/inenglish/1579178551_774948.html

 

Pets

Lost dog: Urgent – beppo (piccolo) lost in the canillas de aceituno and archez area Cómpeta. Only 4 months old and chipped to apa NERJA. RAÍA have been informed.
His new family are waiting for him in Germany on Friday.
Please everyone share
It is a young dog and used to being with a family, he can’t have gone far.
It’s the white and black dog in the photo. Bodeguero type.
Please contact me if you have seen or know anyone who is guarding a dog like this
Sue Kiff / Torrox, gipsy48@yahoo.com

 

Nerja needs a dog shelter:
Let’s  write to the Mayor of Nerja, Señor José Alberto Armijo, and make this a massive campaign. All of us know that a Refuge is needed in Nerja as well as detest the policy of using Don Animal, the killing place the town hall uses at present to deal with the abandoned animal situation. If you act in whatever way please post on the Nerja Dog blog under Sue’s post please – search refuge or shelter and that will find it.
There are many ways to support us in our quest to realise our goal of a new refuge centre – please do all of them if you can, the more correspondence he receives the more he will have to take notice, even repeat your efforts every week/2weeks… we need to get together and show our strength of feeling:
-Write to him: Don J A Armijo, El Ayuntamiento, Nerja 27980, Málaga, España
-Post something on his Facebook Page: José Alberto Armijo
-Sign our petition in our charity shop / vets / other outlets / ask for a or download and print a petition sheet to get signatures, spares will be put in the APA charity shop
-Talk about the campaign, spread the word…then talk some more
Here are some thoughts to support your correspondence and if you do correspond please “speak from your heart” and be polite, it’s powerful:
-Your experiences of abandoned animals in and around Nerja
-How you think a refuge would support Nerja, especially around tourism – this is on his pre-election manifesto – “boost/promote basic municipal services (cleaning, gardens, beaches) to stop the deterioration of tourism of Nerja” he says
-How a refuge would support the promotion of Nerja around the world, could be the first in Malaga province to be supported by the administration
-How we could support the work of the Town Hall – education around neutering, dog mess, pet care.
-How we support the residents of Nerja by using our network of volunteers to find their lost animals, we are very successful here
-How you want the abhorrent use of the Perrera (kennels) stopped, the monies at present diverted to a more humane way of dealing with the situation – a real plus for those of us from North Europe as well as Spain so subsequently tourism
-Promotion of a neutering programme in the future
-Nerja to be an example of showing animal respect, they all have a soul/ seen as sentient beings, not objects according the European directive of 2017

Ozzy Osbourne breaks his silence on his battle with Parkinson’s disease: “It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” Osbourne told Roberts. “I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.” That resulted in alternating numbness and “nerve pain” in his arms and legs for which he takes “nerve pills”.
To complicate the matters further, Osbourne revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, “It’s PRKN 2,” said his wife, Sharon. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

Underground lies a network of tunnels, the Civil War Shelters of Almería. The English Cable is a huge iron pier and symbol of the city’s former mining industry. The Cathedral has a fortress-like appearance due to its towers, merlons and protected paths, created to defend it from Mediterranean pirates.

In the 16th century it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style, whilst keeping some of its defensive features.

WindscribeVPN Pro and Free Versions: WHILE NORD AND EXPRESS VPNs BOTH SUFFERED MASSIVE DATA BREACHES RECENTLY, WINDSCRIBE REMAINS ONE OF THE ONLY MAJOR VPNs TO NOT GET HACKED! GET IT NOW! For Windows, Mac, Linux, plus now Android and iOS Apps (NEW)! Windscribe (Canada) provides access to 480+ servers in 51 countries in the Pro Version. Both versions are very fast. Pro version is IPTV, Netflix and P2P friendly! Very simple install and setup. Comes with both System-wide VPN and also a browser plug-in VPN. Static IP addresses available. No risk- three day cash back refund test period. A free version (not for IPTV) is available providing servers in USA, UK, CAN, FR, NOR, SWISS, GER, NL,  Hong Kong & Romania.  Windscribe sponsors DigameXtra, making a modest donation for every VPN purchased, but only if you use this red link.  Click to Get Windscribe VPN Free and Pro Recommended by DoctorLaptop! As I recently demonstrated to several computer clients, on a 100Mb connection and using the same server location on both VPNs, Canada-based Windscribe Pro VPN tested at 90Mb for both download and upload, while Panama-based Nord Pro VPN tested at only 30Mb download and only 5Mb upload! Don’t take my word for it. From tech review site PixelPrivacy.com: “NordVPN’s Tested Speed: 17.90Mbps average download speed.” “NordVPN’s connection speeds are slow when compared to the speeds of other VPNs.” https://pixelprivacy.com/vpn/nordvpn-review/

University project aims to involve citizens in local research in Rincón de la Victoria: The collaboration between the local council and the University of Malaga aims to protect marine life on the town’s coastline. Rincón de la Victoria town hall signed an agreement earlier this week with the University of Malaga’s foundation, FGUMA, to roll out a yearlong project which aims to involve citizens across Malaga province.
FGUMA’s objective is to bring the classroom to all citizens and not just university students by running a series of courses and workshops outside of its city campuses.
In Rincón de la Victoria, the initiative will investigate ways to regenerate and protect marine life along the town’s coastline, including the reef in the El Cantal area. The idea started in 2018 with courses being held in areas including social networks and emotional intelligence.

Should Nerja sort out it’s beaches’ water quality issues before spending money on high-tech virtual reality demonstrations at tourist-biz trade shows?: Nerja goes all out for FITUR tourism fair in Madrid. Nerja is beginning 2020 with a new promotion strategy at the International Tourism Fair in Madrid (FITUR). The stand that will represent Nerja in Madrid has been designed to create an immersive virtual reality experience. Nerja is giving special attention to the Sierra Almijara natural park with the new motto, ‘Nerja, between the sea and the sky’. The Town Hall proudly highlights that the municipality is home to the highest peak on the peninsular coast, the Pico del Cielo (peak of the sky). Notice they are not mentioning the water quality at the beaches?

Scam Alert: We have been living in Andalusia occasionally and permanently for more than thirty years, so would think we have seen first hand most of the petty crime such as pickpocketing, bag slitting etc. But on Sunday we experienced one we had heard of but not experienced ourselves.
We were walking along the Paseo between Caleta and Torre del Mar when I felt something hit my back. When I looked I had an awful mess from a sweet smelling substance all over the back of my jacket and trousers. Initially I thought it was from a bird, but judging from the amount it had to be a giant eagle. There appeared an apparently very nice helpful Spanish man who produced a bottle of water and some tissues. I knew immediately that he was a thief. He began to try to wife the mess from my jacket but I would not let him get close. As much as he insisted on helping I told him I was fine and didn’t actually let him touch me. He was trying to pick my wallet.
I knew about this scam but a newcomer or holidaymaker would have thought him just a nice man. Please tell your friends and visitors about this scam and to refuse his help. Colin, Torre del Mar

ORANGE ALERT ACTIVATED: Heavy snowfall to hit Almería, Granada, Jaén and Valencia. Aemet’s (State Meteorological Agency) warning has been activated today (January 19) and will be in place until at least Monday (January 20) but could extend well into next week.
The highest caution is recommended in the regions of Cazorla and Segura in Jaén, Guadix and Baza in Granada, and Valle del Almanzora and Los Vélez in Almería. The storm will also be felt strongly across Jaén, Cuenca del Genil, Sierra Nevada and Las Alpujarras in Granada in addition to Tabernas in Almería. Snowfall is forecasted to accumulate up to 15 to 20 centimetres in all of these areas as well as in the valley of Almanzora and Los Vélez in Huelva.

Around the clock surveillance of everyone is on the horizon, and Facebook is largely to blame as it fails to enforce it’s own User safety rules: At the moment the app called Clearview only searches for photos, but it could soon be connected via the Internet-of-Things to every unsecured microphone and surveillance cam, doorbell cam and webcam on the planet. Searching and locating someone by face and/or voice print could become as easy as Googling a name is now, with the search results showing every instance where the searched person has appeared on a camera. Strangers would be able to listen in on sensitive conversations, take photos of the participants and know personal secrets. Someone walking down the street would be immediately identifiable — and his or her home address would be only a few clicks away. It would herald the end of public anonymity. This is happening now, some police forces already have access! Read the comprehensive article here: https://dnyuz.com/2020/01/18/the-secretive-company-that-might-end-privacy-as-we-know-it/

What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Upcoming Major Spanish Festivals: Come on, have a go! This is part of why you moved here. No excuses, you have plenty of time to make plans. Grab a party outfit at the clothes recycler, add some oddball accessories and you’ll fit right in! Way more fun than simply observing as a tourist, and much better pics to share with friends.
-Carnival, February 23rd. The pre-Lent costume party celebrated throughout Spain.
-Las Fallas, Valencia, March 15th – 19th: Celebrating Saint Joseph, the Patron Saint of Carpenters. Fireworks, bonfires and parades featuring the famous giant papier-mâché models satirizing politicians and popular figures of the day. The “ninots” are eventually burnt with glee at the frenzied conclusion.
-Semana Santa (Holy week), April 5th – 12th: Easter Week, throughout Spain. Assorted processions and passion plays, with Andalucia hosting some of Spain’s most elaborate events.
April Fair, Seville, April 25th – May 2nd: Two weeks after Easter week every year people break out the traditional costumes, dance Sevillanas and party in the streets during the Feria de Abril.
-Romería de El Rocío (El Rocio Pilgrimage), Almonte, May 31st – June 1st: The most famous of Spain’s Romerias, El Rocio attracts some one million people on a pilgrimage to the Saint, with some travelling on horseback, other by carriage or on foot dressed in traditional flamenco-style outfits. Expect live music, dancing, food and drink until well into the early hours.

 

The 34th edition of 200 Millas A2 regatta will be held between February 28th and March 1st: Altea’s Club Nautica once again organises the Mediterranean’s most emblematic winter race, an Altea-Ibiza-Altea round trip. The race is also a classifying heat for the Copa de España de Cruceros A2 Spanish championships. It is held at a time of the year when participants face harsh weather conditions at sea, completing a circuit of 200 nautical miles (approximately370.5 kilometres).

Almuñecar Hiking Program: The municipal department of sport announces 14 hiking excursions in Southern Spain featuring hiking trails along the Axarquia coast and others further inland.
Hikers will undertake the first trail on January 26, on a route between Maro and La Coladilla in Nerja. Two more routes are scheduled for February 9 and February 23, in Lecrin Valley and Laujar de Andarax. In March, routes will include a trail by the cliffs in Cerro Gordo and Maro and a second trail between Fuentes and Atalayas de Cónchar. The group will convene for different hikes until June, when the activity will be paused in the summer months and resumed in October.
Those interested in taking part in the program or any of the planned routes can register at the municipal offices located in the Francisco Bonet stadium. The offices open from 9am to 2pm and from 5pm to 10pm and inscription is open until the Thursday before the planned hike.

Internet Explorer Browser Alert: While this browser is being retired by Microsoft, many people still use it. Microsoft earlier today issued an emergency security advisory warning millions of Windows users of a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer (IE) browser that attackers are actively exploiting in the wild — and there is no patch yet available for it. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary code on targeted computers and take full control over them just by convincing victims into opening a maliciously crafted web page on the vulnerable Microsoft browser.
The affected web browsing software includes — Internet Explorer 9, Internet Explorer 10, and Internet Explorer 11 running on all versions of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and the recently-discontinued Windows 7.

The mobile text (SMS message) emergency alert system already used in the Netherlands and Belgium is coming to Spain: In the event of a serious incident, the mass warning system will alert people of the danger posed in a specific area and the actions that should be taken to ensure their safety.
Data will be collected from telephone providers in the area of an emergency, an alert will be sent through SMS to mobile phones. This would include situations such as acts of terrorism, bombs, chemical explosions and mass murders. This may also eventually do as in America, and send “Amber Alerts”, in cases of child abduction emergency.
Texts with messages such as ‘Detected chemical accident in XX. Stay at home with the windows closed until further notice’ would be received by registered mobile phone users shortly after the incident occurs.
