Bio Beach Restaurant – El Morche: Updated Event Date
– Summer is officially over and the September Solstice is behind us. But the good times with great Bio Beach programs are still many to come our way! Do you like the Music of the Mid-Sixties?? If yes, then join us in a couple of weeks at Bio Beach on the second Wed. of Oct. for the U3A Bio Beach lectures Series!! By popular demand, on Oct. 12th at 11 am, Ray Sulivan will present his absorbing and heel-kicking taped musical program that most U3A members, who know him, will not miss! It is entitled “How Merseybeat conquered America’s pop charts in 1964/65”: Here is what the speaker, Ray Sullivan details about his program: “My talk charts the state of the British pop scene thru to the Merseybeat explosion of 1962/64 and the subsequent British invasion of America, spearheaded by The Beatles and The Searchers. The music has been recorded on c.d. and there are 24 tracks. The presentation lasts just under 2 hours with an interval of approx. 20 minutes. Clapping, singing, and dancing are encouraged and a fun time will hopefully be had by all.”
– These U3A programmes are free, just order refreshments. We belong to U3A, (http://www.u3aaxarquia.com/) and these social, educational, and stimulating mornings are presented in an effort to attract more members. Bio Beach Restaurant is located on the El Morche beachfront promenade (right behind the church). We look forward to seeing you there! For more info contact norma2kk@aol.com

NOTICE! 
Submissions for posting in sections below
must include this info or they will be returned !!!
Sender's First Name / Nearest Town 

Note: You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup,
but your location is required in any case. If selling an item from a location different from where you reside, you must include both.
For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

SPAIN

Consumer associations have pointed their fingers at six food firms for adopting ‘shrinkflation’, a practice that is legal but lacking transparency:
– Shrinkflation. That is the term used when brands reduce the weight of their packs but keep the price the same: in other words, consumers are receiving less of the product but paying as much as they always did. The operation is legal, as long as the weight shown on the label is accurate, but consumer associations are accusing the firms of a lack of transparency.
– Spain’s Consumers and Users Organisation (OCU) has provided some figures about this tactic which is usually associated with a general increase in prices. It says 7% of the 273 products it looked at were subject to shrinkflation. For example, what was an 800 gramme pack of ColaCao drink powder now weighs 760; 500g of Tulipán margarine is now 400g; a two-litre bottle of Pepsi Cola is now 1.75 litres; a pack of Revilla chorizo costing 1 euro contains 65g instead of the previous 80; the 110-gramme pack of Campofrío ham for one euro now weighs 85g and every Activia yoghurt now weighs 5 grammes less.
– Due to this situation, the OCU has reported Pastas Gallo, Danone, Pescanova, ColaCao, Tulipán and Campofrío to the National Commission of Markets and Competition. No response has been received as yet, and the OCU says it cannot rule out reporting more brands and companies as well.
– “Charging the same but giving consumers less is unfair competition with manufacturers who increase their prices,” said sources at the OCU, which has begun a campaign to encourage people to report cases of shrinkflation and hidden price increases when they see them.

Two thousand residents of Periana have been unable to consume tap water for a week: {Translation} 24Sept22
– Around two thousand of the three thousand residents of Periana are still a week later unable to drink the water that reaches their homes, due to high levels of turbidity. The problem was detected last Friday, when the low level of the well at the source of the river Guaro, which supplies the main town of the Axarquia municipality, increased the levels of turbidity in the water, forcing the Town Hall to advise the residents not to drink it.
– After a week, two more analyses have been carried out, without positive results. The mayor of Perian, Rafael Torrubia (PSOE), explained on Thursday that the workers are relocating the pumps of one of the two boreholes to try to improve the quality of the water. At the same time, the Consistory is going to purchase new filters to treat it. At the same time, work is being done to connect the second borehole, which until last August was used for irrigation, to the supply network. The municipality’s farms have suspended irrigation due to the drought.
– At the same time, the Consistory is working to install a pipeline from the source of the Batán to the town of Periana. These resources, which have hardly diminished, go to the districts of Mondrón, Los Marines, Vilo and Los Parrales. Residents of the municipality have complained to this newspaper that the irrigation of several avocado farms “has overexploited the Guaro aquifer”. Photo: Youtube.

EUROPE

Italians expected to elect right-wing government led by Meloni:
– Italians voted on Sunday in an election that is forecast to return the country’s most right-wing government since World War Two and pave the way for Giorgia Meloni to become its first woman prime minister.
– The complex calculations required by a hybrid proportional/first-past-the-post electoral law mean it may be many hours before the composition of a new slimmed-down parliament is known. Even if there is a clear cut result, the next government is unlikely to take office before late October, with the new parliament not meeting until Oct. 13.
– Parts of Italy had heavy rain on Sunday, with the Campania region around the southern city of Naples particularly badly affected. That appeared to have put off some voters, with turnout nationally only around 51% four hours before polls closed, compared to more than 58% at the same stage in 2018.

UPDATE 25Sept22 23:07 – Italy’s right-wing, led by Meloni wins election, according to exit polls: A right-wing alliance led by Giorgia Meloni’s Brothers of Italy party looks set to win a clear majority in the next parliament, exit polls said on Sunday after voting ended in an Italian national election. An exit poll for state broadcaster RAI said the bloc of conservative parties, that also includes Matteo Salvini’s League and Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party, won between 41 and 45%, enough to guarantee control of both houses of parliament.
Italy’s electoral law favours groups that manage to create pre-ballot pacts, giving them an outsized number of seats by comparison with their vote tally. Full results are expected by early Monday. Full article:

SPACE

Jupiter is coming its closest to Earth in decades:
– The gas giant Jupiter is coming the closest it has come to Earth in 59 years this Monday and will be particularly visible because it coincides with another event called opposition.
– When in opposition, a planet is on the opposite side of Earth from the sun, so you could draw a straight line from the sun to Earth to Jupiter, all in alignment. Jupiter’s opposition happens every 13 months. Looking from the Earth, when the sun sets in the west, Jupiter will rise in the east, directly opposite. During opposition, planets appear at their biggest and brightest.
– Jupiter is coming closer to Earth than it has since 1963. Because of Earth’s and Jupiter’s differing orbits around the sun, they don’t pass each other at the same distance each time. When it’s closest on Monday, Jupiter will be about 367 million miles from Earth, according to NASA. At its farthest, it’s 600 million miles away.

Hack that leaves some Hyundai, Kia cars vulnerable:
– Some Hyundai and Kia cars and SUVs are missing a “key” anti-theft device, and thieves know. An insurance industry group says these cars are stolen at nearly twice the rate of the rest of the auto industry because their keys lack computer chips for theft “immobilizer” systems.
– Chip keys, which started to show up in the 1990s, communicate with another chip in the ignition switch. If they match, the engines will start. If they don’t match, a thief can’t start the engine.
– Keys don’t have an immobilizer system in several lower-priced versions of vehicles from the two South Korean automakers such as the Kia Rio and Sportage and the Hyundai Accent, the institute said.

On Sunday, it made landfall not far from the capital, Manila. The storm made landfall on Polillo Island, 90 kilometers (almost 50 miles) north of the capital, Manila, which is home to 13 million people. Authorities have warned of potential flash floods, landslides and tidal surges. “We ask residents living in danger zones to adhere to calls for evacuation whenever necessary,” said Philippine National Police chief General Rodolfo Azurin.

Editor’s Note To Beer Lovers- Torrox Costa Oktoberfest: I visited Friday at 11:30pm. The good news, there is a much larger selection of regional German beers on tap than in previous years. The bad news is the variety of craft beers is smaller. I didn’t see a stall of the craft brewery from Toledo, forgot the name, that had the amazing blueberry porter last year. The sound quality is typically less than stellar, but there are a lot more tables & seats this year.

MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin

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.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
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:

SPAIN

How foreigners can get fast-track citizenship in Spain:
– Overall, it can end up taking 12 to 13 years for you to finally get your hands on a Spanish passport and ID. That’s a very long wait for most people, especially if they want to consolidate their right to live in Spain now and in the future. However, there are a number of cases in which the wait to get citizenship through residency can be up to four times shorter, even when factoring in the long processing times in Spain:
– Being married to a Spanish national – one year to apply.
– Having the right nationality – two years to apply.
– Being married to the person with the right nationality – three to four years to apply.
– Being born in Spain – one year to apply.
– Having Spanish blood ties – one year to apply
– Naturalisation letter – potentially zero years to apply

ANDALUCIA

Health will start vaccination against the flu and the fourth Covid dose on October 3: {Translation, summary}
– The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, announced on Thursday that the flu vaccination campaign will begin on 3 October in Andalusia and that it will be carried out in conjunction with the fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine for people over 80 years of age in residential homes.
– This year the flu vaccination campaign will include children between the ages of six months and five years, as recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
– The first group to receive this second booster dose will be people over the age of 80 living in residential homes, followed by inoculation of people over the age of 60 and staff in health and social care centres.

These are the new tax measures approved by the Board of Andalusia: {Translation, summary}
– The suspension of the water charges will mean an estimated overall saving of 140 million euros for families and companies during the year 2023 alone.
– With regard to personal income tax, the Andalusian government has agreed on two measures: the deflation of the first brackets of the regional rate and the increase in the personal and family minimum tax exemptions.
– The decree law approved by the Governing Council provides for the practical abolition of the Wealth Tax by means of a 100% tax rebate. As it is a devolved tax, only the central government has the power to abolish it.
– Finally, the Decree-Law provides for an increase in the maximum period for deferment and instalments of debts owed by citizens, companies and institutions to the Junta de Andalucía, up to 12 years in general. The objective, in line with the rest of the measures included in the Decree-Law, is to provide taxpayers with payment facilities, in the context of the current economic slowdown. Until now, the maximum period that had been applied, subject to a series of requirements, was ten years. Source, Spanish: https://www.granadadigital.es/medidas-fiscales-aprobadas-junta-andalucia/

Britain lifts ban on gas fracking in push for energy independence:
Britain on Thursday formally lifted a moratorium on fracking for shale gas that has been in place since 2019, saying strengthening the country’s energy supply was an “absolute priority”. The government said ending the ban would allow drilling to restart and more data to be gathered, building an understanding of how shale gas can be safely extracted where there was local support.

Submissions for posting in sections below
must include this info or they will be returned !!!
Sender's First Name / Nearest Town 

Note: You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup,
but your location is required in any case. If selling an item from a location different from where you reside, you must include both.
For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

ANDALUCIA

Paying Fares On Public Transport Possible Soon, With Phone App –  Starting Monday In Rincón de la Victoria: {Translation, summary}
– The Regional Minister for Development, Territorial Planning and Housing, Marifrán Carazo, has announced the implementation of the virtual public transport card in Andalusia, which will allow secure payment by mobile phone and which will be launched on Monday 26 September in Rincón de la Victoria.
– The Councillor pointed out that the first experience of the virtual card will be carried out in the buses of Rincón de la Victoria to “later be extended to the rest of the lines of the Malaga Consortium and then to the rest of Andalusia”. The Andalusian Regional Government has already allocated 1.6 million euros from European Next Generation funds for its implementation throughout the autonomous region.
– The virtual card can be used by those who have a mobile phone with an Android 6.0 or higher system and NFC chip and install the Consorcio Málaga app on their terminal. This application includes, in addition to payment facilities, advantages such as the possibility of topping up or checking the number of journeys paid for. Moreover, it does not require the payment of annual licences per card and can work offline. The councillor highlighted among its advantages that “the card immediately updates the fare systems, so that, for example, the discounts currently in force will be applied”.

‘Not a bluff’ – Putin mobilizes reservists, threatens West with nuclear weapons:
– Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered that as many as 300,000 reservists be called up to fight in Ukraine and threatened to use nuclear weapons against the West, stressing that his words were “not a bluff.” Putin said he has already signed the decree for partial mobilization, which is due to start on Wednesday.
– In a national address that was televised Wednesday morning, Putin warned that he would use all the means available to protect Russia’s territory, in what appeared to be a veiled reference to the country’s nuclear arsenal. “When the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal,” Putin said, adding, “It’s not a bluff.”
– Putin accused the West of engaging in “nuclear blackmail” and noted “statements of some high-ranking representatives of the leading NATO states about the possibility of using nuclear weapons of mass destruction against Russia.” He didn’t identify who had made such comments.

New Webb Image Captures Clearest View of Neptune’s Rings in Decades:
– NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope shows off its capabilities closer to home with its first image of Neptune. Not only has Webb captured the clearest view of this distant planet’s rings in more than 30 years, but its cameras reveal the ice giant in a whole new light.
– Most striking in Webb’s new image is the crisp view of the planet’s rings – some of which have not been detected since NASA’s. Voyager 2 became the first spacecraft to observe Neptune during its flyby in 1989. In addition to several bright, narrow rings, the Webb image clearly shows Neptune’s fainter dust bands. Photo:NASA

NOTICE! 
Submissions for posting in sections below
must include this info or they will be returned !!!
Sender's First Name / Nearest Town 

Note: You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup,
but your location is required in any case. If selling an item from a location different from where you reside, you must include both.
For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

– Excess deaths, or extra deaths, are the number of deaths that are above the long-term average for a particular week or month of the year.
– Deaths due to an irregular heartbeat are likely to be one of the reasons more people than usual have been dying this year – with the number well above average so far.

TECH

Mark Zuckerberg’s US$71 billion wealth wipeout puts focus on Meta’s woes:
– Even in a rough year for just about every US tech titan, the wealth erased from the chief executive officer of Meta Platforms Inc. stands out. His fortune has been cut in half and then some, dropping by US$71 billion so far this year, the most among the ultra-rich tracked by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. At $55.9 billion, his net worth ranks 20th among global billionaires, his lowest spot since 2014 and behind three Waltons and two members of the Koch family.
– It was less than two years ago when Zuckerberg, 38, was worth US$106 billion and among an elite group of global billionaires, with only Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates commanding bigger fortunes. His wealth swelled to a peak of $142 billion in September 2021, when the company’s shares reached as high as US$382.
– The following month, Zuckerberg introduced Meta and changed the company’s name from Facebook Inc. And it’s been largely downhill from there as it struggles to find its footing in the tech universe.
– Its recent earnings reports have been dismal. It started in February, when the company revealed no growth in monthly Facebook users, triggering a historic collapse in its stock price and slashing Zuckerberg’s fortune by US$31 billion, among the biggest one-day declines in wealth ever.

SCAMS

Fake Power Company Scam Primarily Targets Hospitality & Catering: {Translation, summary}
Warning from the Association of Traders and Entrepreneurs of Velez-Malaga (ACEV). “This Delegation is carrying out a citizen alert on the scam of cutting off power supplies, aimed at commercial establishments, and especially those dedicated to catering”
– Using social engineering techniques, the criminals obtain information about the establishments: telephone number, ownership, etc. In this way, the person in charge of the establishment receives a phone call, in which the caller pretends to be an employee of the debt department of the electricity company in question, claiming an outstanding debt, creating an emergency situation, in order to avoid an immediate power cut, with the serious consequences that this would have for the business if it were to be carried out. The attackers hope that their targets will not think too much about what is happening, tricking them into making a financial transfer to an account that they provide urgently.

Bio Beach Restaurant- El Morche:
– And did you know that Bio Beach Restaurant offers enthralling music on weekends while you enjoy a tapa or a refreshing drink with marine breezes on their lovely terrace, facing the sea? The selections are advertised on DigameXtra as well as FaceBook! But, can you hear the Music of the Mid-Sixties? It will be coming our way in October at Bio Beach for the second Wed. U3A Bio Beach lectures Series!! By popular demand, on Oct. 11th at 11 am, Ray Sulivan will present his absorbing and heel-kicking taped musical program that most U3A members, who know him, will not miss! It is entitled ” How Merseybeat conquered America’s pop charts in 1964/65″: Here is what the speaker, Ray Sullivan details about his program: “My talk charts the state of the British pop scene thru to the Merseybeat explosion of 1962/64 and the subsequent British invasion of America, spearheaded by The Beatles and The Searchers. The music has been recorded on c.d. and there are 24 tracks. The presentation lasts just under 2 hours with an interval of approx. 20 minutes. Clapping, singing, and dancing are encouraged and a fun time will hopefully be had by all.”
– These U3A programmes are free, just order refreshments. We belong to U3A, (http://www.u3aaxarquia.com/) and these social, educational, and stimulating mornings are presented in an effort to attract more members. Bio Beach Restaurant is located on the El Morche beachfront promenade (right behind the church). We look forward to seeing you there! For more info contact norma2kk@aol.com

Sender's First Name / Nearest Town 

Note: You may additionally include a location to meet or pickup,
but your location is required in any case. If selling an item from a location different from where you reside, you must include both.
For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

TV/Internet info: I’m interested in anyone who has internet/TV with Rebeloak/BB4S (now apparently called Populoos). I received an email from Global Telecom Iberia (GTI) which stated we would be billed from Oct 1st thro GTI. It also asked me to confirm if I wanted to continue with the service. I wonder did anyone else receive a similar email? Or maybe this is a scam? Does anyone know who GTI are? Have they taken over Rebeloak?
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good internet provider who will cover the Torrox campo area, that offers buffer- free TV streaming? Grateful for any info. Replies to

– Rain could affect a large part of the country but there is still uncertainty about the evolution of an anticyclone centred in the British Isles
– The week has kicked off with the possibility of storms in the mountains of Toledo, central Iberia, Extremadura and some mountainous areas of Andalucía. Yellow weather warnings have already been issued for certain part of Huelva and Seville provinces.
– The experts at Meteored are expecting more instability on Wednesday. “The rain will move from west to east through the centre and southern half of the peninsula, mainly affecting Castilla-La Mancha, inland Andalucía, Murcia, Valencia and the Balearics,” they said.

– The event is part of a series of actions scheduled to take place throughout the year. The second deputy mayor and councillor for the area, Elena Aguilar (Cs), explained that “we are joining this commemoration to show our commitment to social diversity and respect among all citizens”.

GIBRALTAR

Gibraltar ensures that the ‘OS 35’ no longer contains fuel or oil in its tanks: {Translation}
– The ship stranded east of Gibraltar since the collision on 29 August, the ‘OS 35’, no longer contains any fuel or lubricating oil in its tanks. This is contained in a note with a statement from the Gibraltar harbour master, John Ghio, who explains that “there are no quantities of bulk oil left on board” the bulk carrier. “All the oil tanks have been emptied of everything that was pumpable,” adds the captain.
– Ghio also indicated that “there is no fuel of any kind left on board” and “certainly no fuel for the operation of any machinery on the ship”.
– It should be recalled that this Saturday the stern of the ‘OS 35’ sank, which, like the bow, rests on the seabed. In this regard, the 112 emergency service explained this Sunday on social networks that there have been no new developments on the Andalusian coast surrounding Gibraltar, where the technicians of the Junta de Andalucía are maintaining their surveillance work with regard to possible spills.

UK

King Charles seeks to amend law on who can act as his official stand-in:
– The move would see the Duke of York, the Duke of Sussex and Princess Beatrice all relieved of their duties as official stand-ins for the sovereign, should he be indisposed.
– Under the 1937 Regency Act, the spouse of a monarch and the four adults next in line to the throne can be deployed as counsellors of state on official business. When Queen Elizabeth was still on the throne, those roles were filled by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge, the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of York, while the Duke of Edinburgh had also acted as one before his death.
– The change in the line of succession means that the new Queen Consort is now entitled to be a counsellor of state, as is Princess Beatrice as the next adult in line.
– Buckingham Palace has long been under pressure to eject Prince Harry and Prince Andrew from their roles and install other working members of the family in their places.
– It is believed that the King recognises the incongruity of having a trio of non-working Royals able to step into his shoes if he is abroad or incapacitated. He believes it’s important to know who’s in charge. That is Evelyn de Rothschild in the photo below, letting then Prince Charles know exactly who is in charge.

HEALTH

Denmark Stops Covid Vax For Under 50s:
– The Danish Health Authority expects that the number of covid-19 infections will increase during autumn and winter. Therefore, we recommend vaccination of people aged 50 years and over as well as selected risk groups.
– The purpose of the vaccination programme is to prevent severe illness, hospitalisation and death. Therefore, people at the highest risk of becoming severely ill will be offered booster vaccination. The purpose of vaccination is not to prevent infection with covid-19, and people aged under 50 are therefore currently not being offered booster vaccination. People aged under 50 are generally not at particularly higher risk of becoming severely ill from covid-19. In addition, younger people aged under 50 are well protected against becoming severely ill from covid-19, as a very large number of them have already been vaccinated and have previously been infected with covid-19, and there is consequently good immunity among this part of the population.
– Vaccination of children against covid-19. Children and adolescents rarely become severely ill from the Omicron variant of covid-19.
From 1 July 2022, it was no longer possible for children and adolescents aged under 18 to get the first injection and, from 1 September 2022, it was no longer possible for them to get the second injection. Full article: https://www.sst.dk/en/English/Corona-eng/Vaccination-against-COVID-19

TECH

Who Needs Google? – TikTok is now Generation Z’s preferred search engine:
– Not very long ago, it appeared that Google was so consolidated that it was going to be invincible. But now, members of Generation Z , those born at the end of the 1990s and the beginning of the 2000s , are turning their backs on the search engine, using TikTok as a substitute.
– “Before, whenever I had a doubt about something, I immediately went to Google, but now I go to TikTok first, because I trust it more and because of the content’s quality. Only when I’m not convinced, or when I don’t find what I’m looking for, do I use Google… and the truth is, that happens rarely,” admits Rosa Rodríguez, a 22-year-old TikTok user.
– Like Rodríguez, millions of other young people turn to the Chinese platform rather than Google. They prefer TikTok, above all, because of speed, but also because, rather than having to read text, a TikTok video usually sums up info in a few seconds.
– TikTok gives you one minute videos, where they tell you at full-speed something you want to know. For example, with restaurant searches, you can go to Google and find what people think and see four photos, but [on] TikTok, you see videos of people who are in the restaurant, see what they eat, how they eat it, if the environment is pretty or not… these young people are much more used to everything visual, and they’re very lazy when it comes to seeking information.”

Researchers Say It’ll Be Impossible to Control a Super-Intelligent AI:
– The idea of artificial intelligence overthrowing humankind has been talked about for decades, and in 2021, scientists delivered their verdict on whether we’d be able to control a high-level computer super-intelligence. The answer? Almost definitely not.
– The catch is that controlling a super-intelligence far beyond human comprehension would require a simulation of that super-intelligence which we can analyze (and control). But if we’re unable to comprehend it, it’s impossible to create such a simulation.
– “A super-intelligence poses a fundamentally different problem than those typically studied under the banner of ‘robot ethics’,” wrote the researchers. Full article: https://www.sciencealert.com/researchers-say-itll-be-impossible-to-control-a-super-intelligent-ai

For example: "...Buyer collects in Nerja, John/Malaga"
Why? DigameXtra covers a large area. So, for example, readers in Motril are unlikely to make recommendations, or call about most for-sale items, if they know you are located in Coin. As for including both locations in for-sale posts, the buyer needs to know where to collect the item, but they will also want to know where you are from in case there is a problem. Your cooperation is appreciated.

MOONETTE – Organic Skincare for Mature Skin

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.
Your skin health matters to us. How you feed your skin is as important as how you feed your body. Why settle for anything less than natural and organic?
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.

COVID & MONKEYPOX

Covid Spain & Andalucia: {Translation} 16Sept22
– The number of people hospitalised in the ICU for COVID-19 in Spain has fallen by 19.7 percent over the last week, but Castilla y León, Extremadura and Murcia have recorded increases in this indicator. Admissions to the ward have fallen by 8.6 percent and a total of 65 deaths have been recorded as a result of the pandemic in the last seven days, according to the Ministry of Health. Specifically, the Health Ministry reported on Friday that 2,455 people are currently hospitalised in Spain, 231 fewer than on the previous Friday. Meanwhile, this Friday there are 146 people in ICU, 36 less than last Tuesday.
– In the report of Friday 16 September, Andalusia has 250 people hospitalised for coronavirus, while in the report of 9 September it had 350 patients, which is 28.5 percent less in the last week. It has four fewer patients in intensive care since last Friday – 11 in total – and has reported eight deaths in the last week.

– Andalusia continues to reduce the number of active cases of monkeypox, which now stands at 91, 27 fewer than last Tuesday (118), with a further 73 cases under investigation. In addition, 1,064 people have already been vaccinated as at-risk contacts of patients who have tested positive for the disease.

The route through the most beautiful singular castles in Spain:
– According to the Spanish Association of Friends of Castles, Spain has a total of 10,200 unique castles. (https://www.castillosdeespaña.es/es)
– The Royal Palace, La Granja or the Alcázar de Segovia are probably some of the best known. However, there are many others that deserve to be visited at least once in a lifetime and one of the best and most comfortable ways to do it is on a motorhome route, allowing you to take a tour in which you don’t miss a single detail.

Malaga to Madrid by Train For €18: {Translation, summary}
– Popularly known as the cheap AVE, because they will compete with the prices of Renfe, the state-owned company, the truth is that the entry of new private railway companies in our country will allow lower prices for train journeys.
– Although there are several companies that will enter this sector, in this case we will focus on Iryo, which has already confirmed that it will start operating in March 2023, with reduced prices compared to those previously set by the aforementioned Spanish state-owned company.
– IRYO services will include, within Andalusia, 10 journeys per day between Malaga and Madrid.
– So far, it is known that tickets for these routes will have a base price of 18 Euro, which is really affordable considering the distances covered and the previous prices available in the Spanish railway market. The fares offered will be very diverse, and prices will be announced as IRYO services are confirmed and tickets are available for purchase on its website this Sunday 18 September.

HEALTH

Nolotil (metamizole)- The activist warning foreigners in Spain about a dangerous painkiller:
– The Local speaks to Cristina García Del Campo, a medical translator turned researcher who for years has fought to get Spain to ban a popular painkiller with potentially lethal side effects for Britons and other Northern Europeans in particular.
– Nolotil is a painkiller, the go-to painkiller, and most sold medicine in Spain. In fact, in Spanish hospitals and healthcare centres the rule is: “if in pain, give Nolotil”.
– Nowadays, Nolotil is prohibited in around 40 countries, including the UK, the United States, Japan , Australia and many countries in Europe. In Sweden, the ban was lifted in 1995 and re-introduced in 1999 only to be taken off the market again just a few years later because of cases of agranulocytosis.

SCIENCE

Researchers develop painless tattoos that can be self-administered:
– Researchers have developed low-cost, painless, and bloodless tattoos that can be self-administered and have many applications, from medical alerts to tracking neutered animals to cosmetics.
– Instead of sitting in a tattoo chair for hours enduring painful punctures, imagine getting tattooed by a skin patch containing microscopic needles. Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed low-cost, painless, and bloodless tattoos that can be self-administered and have many applications, from medical alerts to tracking neutered animals to cosmetics.
– “We’ve miniaturized the needle so that it’s painless, but still effectively deposits tattoo ink in the skin,” said Mark Prausnitz, principal investigator on the paper. “This could be a way not only to make medical tattoos more accessible, but also to create new opportunities for cosmetic tattoos because of the ease of administration.”
– Tattoos typically use large needles to puncture repeatedly into the skin to get a good image, a time-consuming and painful process. The Georgia Tech team has developed microneedles that are smaller than a grain of sand and are made of tattoo ink encased in a dissolvable matrix. “Because the microneedles are made of tattoo ink, they deposit the ink in the skin very efficiently,” said Li, the lead author of the study.
In this way, the microneedles can be pressed into the skin just once and then dissolve, leaving the ink in the skin after a few minutes without bleeding. Full article: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/09/220914141006.htm

More Ex-Soviet Republics Fighting- 17 killed in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan border battles, 120,000 civilians evacuated:
– Fierce fighting in a border dispute between the two ex-Soviet republics of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in Central Asia has left 17 people dead on the Kyrgyz side, both soldiers and civilians, the National Security Council in the capital Bishkek reported Friday. Nothing is known about casualties on the part of Tajikistan. Both sides blame each other for the escalation.
– According to Kyrgyz authorities, about 120,000 people have been taken to safety from the Kyrgyz region of Batken, near the border. Both authoritarian Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, which despite setbacks are considered relatively democratic, report that fighting is still ongoing.
– Conflicts that have been smoldering for years have recently escalated in other ex-Soviet states as well. For example, a few days ago, Azerbaijan attacked its neighbor Armenia in the South Caucasus. Observers fear such tensions will increase as Russia, which normally has a strong military presence throughout the region, is currently embroiled in the war in Ukraine.
