THE shortest night of the year will once again be punctuated with bonfires, festivities and beach parties across much of the province.

San Juan to Estepona

The west coast city of Malaga has chosen La Rada beach as the star of its Midsummer celebrations where there will be live music with the Estepona Funky Town festival.

San Juan to San Pedro de Alcantara

The beach chosen to celebrate this particular night of San Juan in San Pedro de Alcantara is La Salida beach where there will be live music between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m.

San Juan to Mijas

It is one of the most populated municipalities in the province and its festivities will take place in two urban centers: Mijas pueblo and La Cala de Mijas. In Mijas pueblo it will be in the Plaza de la Virgen de la Peña where there will be live music starting at 8:30 p.m.

In La Cala, the party will take place on El Torreon beach, with live music starting at 9:30 p.m.

San Juan to Fuengirola

Castillo Sohail’s traditional ‘White Party’ will begin in the early afternoon and end in the early hours of the following morning.

This year, the city council plans to launch a “clean-up competition” with the aim of raising awareness and minimizing litter on one of the most litter-generating nights of the entire year.

Partygoers can share before/after photos of their beach section and the cleanest groovers will win tickets to Melendi’s next concert at the MareNostrum facilities.

San Juan to Benalmadena

Benalmadena will see bonfires and fireworks on Santa Ana beach on the night of June 23, which also marks the start of the Feria de Arroyo de la Miel.

San Juan to Torremolinos

The New Year’s Eve festivities in Torremolinos will take place over two days with live music and other activities scheduled on La Carihuela beach, specifically in the area around Plaza del Remo.

San Juan to Rincon de la Victoria

There will be live music from 10 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning and also fireworks, among other activities.

The fireworks are scheduled at midnight as in the majority of municipalities in Malaga.

San Juan to Torre del Mar

The coastal town of Vélez Málaga is another place where the night of San Juan is intensely celebrated. A beautiful atmosphere is expected on the beaches of Torre del Mar for a long-awaited celebration after the two-year break due to Covid.

350 kilos of grilled sardine skewers, pure maritime tradition, will be offered to the guests where the traditional “juas” will be burned and where live music will resound almost all night long.

San Juan in the city of Malaga

The capital of the Costa del Sol is also ready to rock n’ roll with most activities scheduled on La Misericordia beach, including dancing, barbecues, music, entertainers and fireworks .

Charged The town hall of PILAR DE LA HORADADA has received two 100% electric vehicles free of charge from the Diputacion. Worth €27,397 each, they will be used for general services, explained the town hall, which has a fleet of 80 vehicles, but only four 100% electric.

Guillermo Soler, who teaches at Castellano, said he had been pushing for the move for some time, so transgender students would “feel safer” at school.

No need ALTHOUGH virtually all Covid restrictions have now been lifted, Torrevieja Town Hall is to spend €1m over the next three months on beach monitors needed during the pandemic. This remains necessary due to the town hall’s contract with the service company Broccoli which was renewed last year.

The health department has paid over $100.00 in rent since 2003, but if the purchase goes ahead, it expects to break even within 15 years.

relic of war The town hall of ELCHE will list two more of the town’s 13 air-raid shelters built to protect the population during the Spanish Civil War of 1936-1939. One, which was used as a shooting range and divided into three, is located almost entirely on the public domain and has four independent accesses.

Welcome to another round of good news, our weekly selection of news to send you off to the weekend with a smile.

Here’s this week’s positive news:

  1. A wonder drug that eradicated cancer in every patient in the trial.
  2. The EU has seen a record drop in carbon emissions.
  3. A new EU rule will see universal chargers used for all phones, tablets and laptops.
  4. New research shows that music with a groove is good for brain function.
  5. The number of an endangered rhino is increasing.
  6. A new law in Spain aims to eliminate food waste.

Watch the video above to learn more about each story, or read below.

Here’s this week’s positive news:

1. A miracle drug trial that eradicated cancer in every patient.

A major breakthrough in cancer treatment may be imminent, after more than a dozen US rectal cancer patients saw their tumors disappear after taking a new drug.

The patients were part of a small clinical trial led by researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, who gave them an experimental drug called dostarlimab.

Participants received a dose of dostarlimab every three weeks for six months, and the idea was that they would also have to undergo standard treatments of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery after the immunotherapy treatment.

But to their surprise, the researchers found that in each case the cancer was wiped out with the experimental treatment alone.

The trial was hailed as a first in cancer treatment.

One of the paper’s authors, Dr. Luis Diaz Jr of Memorial Sloan Kettering, told the New York Times that he was unaware of any other study in which treatment completely cleared the cancer in every patient.

2. The EU has seen a record drop in carbon emissions

Greenhouse gas emissions in the bloc are at their lowest level since records began in the 1990s, according to the latest official data released today by the European Environment Agency.

The overall reduction in emissions between 1990 and 2020 was 34%, or 1.94 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases. This is equivalent to driving 1.94 billion times around the earth in a mid-size car.

Almost all EU member states had lower emissions than in 1990, but the UK, which was still part of the bloc in 2020, and Germany deserve special mention, as they accounted for 47% of the reduction total net income over the past 30 years.

3. A new EU rule will see universal chargers used for all phones, tablets and laptops.

Thanks to a recent agreement, that nest of cables in your suitcase could soon be reduced to a single charger. European officials have agreed a deal to impose a single port standard for smartphones, tablets and laptops sold in the bloc.

It’s a win-win for reducing both frustration and e-waste, e-waste, which is the fastest growing source of waste in the developed world.

EU member states and MEPs believe that a standard USB-C port for all devices will have a major environmental benefit.

The USB-C rule will also cover digital cameras, headphones, headphones, portable speakers and e-readers, MPs said.

For most devices, the requirement to charge via a USB-C port will come into effect from the end of 2024, while laptops will have more time.

Resistance to the idea has mostly come from Apple, which is most affected by the move. The company says a uniform charger would stifle innovation.

“From now on, it is mandatory if a company wishes to benefit from the largest digital market in the free world (…), it will have to apply our rules”, declared Thierry Breton, European commissioner in charge of the internal market.

The European Commission entered into a voluntary agreement with the device industry in 2009, which led to a major reduction in cables, but then Apple launched its own Lightning connector. Once this new law is officially ratified by the European Parliament and between EU member states, they will have no choice.

“In two years, if Apple wants to market its products, sell its products in our internal market, they must follow our rules and their respective devices must be USB-C,” said Alex Agius Saliba, Member of the European Parliament.

4. New research shows that music with a groove is good for brain function

We knew it was good for the body, but researchers have found that rhythm is also good for the brain.

The discovery, by researchers at the University of Tsukuba in Japan, is primarily about music, specifically music with a groove – a rhythm that makes you want to dance.

The study examines how this type of music elicits feelings of pleasure and excitement in people, and how it stimulates the prefrontal cortex to improve executive brain function, cognitive skills that include working memory, flexible thinking and self-control.

Benefits were only apparent in participants who said the music elicited a strong feeling of groove. In other words, it’s a very individual response and only works on those who react to the rhythm of the music. For some, their prefrontal cortex will respond to salsa, and for others, to techno.

5. The number of an endangered rhino is on the rise

Assam, the Indian province best known for its tea plantations, is experiencing a rhinoceros baby boom.

Assam is home to 70% of the world’s one-horned rhino population and conducts a rhino census every two years. Since the last count, rhino numbers have increased by 274 – partly due to the peace and quiet during the pandemic, when many protected areas were closed to visitors.

For a species that was once perilously close to extinction, numbering fewer than 100 individuals, the recovery is truly remarkable.

The current one-horned rhino census in India and Nepal, the only other country with larger one-horned rhinos, found that the total population has risen to 4,014.

The governments of India and Nepal have allocated more land in which rhinos can breed while creating new strategies to prevent poaching deaths.

6. A new law in Spain aims to eliminate food waste

Bringing your leftovers home is commonplace in the US, but raises a few eyebrows in most parts of Europe.

The Spanish government wants to break this taboo and has approved a bill requiring restaurants to provide free containers to customers who want to take their leftovers home.

The bill, which still needs to be approved by parliament, will require large bars, restaurants and supermarkets to submit plans to prevent food waste, such as working with NGOs.

The priority should be human consumption through donations to entities such as food banks, but if this is not possible, leftover food can be turned into other products such as juices or jams, or used for animal feed.

And if none of these are suitable, food waste can be turned into industrial by-products or recycled into compost or fuel.

Companies that produce and supply food will have to report annually on how much they waste and must provide incentives with lower prices for selling products close to the best before date.

For serious breaches, they face penalties of up to €60,000 – with fines of up to half a million euros for repeat offenders.

“It is a pioneering legal instrument to prevent the inefficiency of the food chain, which has economic consequences, due to the loss of what is produced and not used; social, due to what represents a unmet need from a food point of view; environmental, for the use of natural resources; and ethical, in a world where, unfortunately, hunger persists”, said Luis Planas, Spanish Minister of Agriculture.

This law aims to comply with one of the sustainable development goals of the UN’s 2030 Agenda: which is to halve food waste in the world.

Berry growers demand that the ministry guarantee the health and economic viability of their crops https://fyl-unex.com/berry-growers-demand-that-the-ministry-guarantee-the-health-and-economic-viability-of-their-crops/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 12:26:42 +0000 https://fyl-unex.com/berry-growers-demand-that-the-ministry-guarantee-the-health-and-economic-viability-of-their-crops/ A total of 750 berry growers in the province of Huelva have signed letters addressed to the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA), Luis Planas, in which they ask the government to authorize the use of phytosanitary products to control pests in berry crops, as has been done in previous campaigns and as are […]]]>

A total of 750 berry growers in the province of Huelva have signed letters addressed to the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPA), Luis Planas, in which they ask the government to authorize the use of phytosanitary products to control pests in berry crops, as has been done in previous campaigns and as are done in other EU countries, such as Italy, Greece and Portugal.

The request, which Freshuelva had transmitted to the ministry during the Spanish-French-Italian-Portuguese joint commission (in which she is a member of the contact group on strawberries) held recently in Lisbon, is also supported by the farmers from other organizations such as Asaja, Agricultural and Food Cooperatives of Andalusia and UPA Huelva.

In their letters, the farmers urged the government to guarantee the health and economic viability of their crops, which generate more than 100,000 jobs in the province of Huelva, and to authorize the use of the formulas necessary for soil disinfection work in strawberry, raspberry and blackberry crops.

“The strawberry produced in Huelva comes from plants that have been obtained in the high altitude nurseries located in Castile and Leon, whose sanitary conditions must be optimal so that, once planted in Huelva, they produce fruits of the highest quality. . All this is achieved, among other measures, with disinfection work prior to the planting of the mother plant, which plays a fundamental role in the entire production cycle,” the farmers pointed out.

In addition, they said, “the government has decided to allow tobacco growers to use the plant protection products necessary for disinfection, which means they are not treated in the same way as other crops and Spanish production areas”. According to the producers, this puts them at a disadvantage because the use of these products, which Spain does not allow, is authorized in southern European countries, such as Portugal, Greece and Italy; which are all subject to the same legislative scope and to Community Regulation 1107/2009.

“If the government does not authorize us to use these products, we will be at a disadvantage compared to production in third countries and to countries in the southern zone of Europe (Italy, Greece, Portugal) which grant exceptional uses to safeguard the interests of their producers and their products because their productions are in competition with ours on the main European markets,” they said.

I am a British citizen living in Spain. Can I vote in the Spanish elections?

The British Embassy in Spain sent a message clarifying the regulations in force for expats wishing to vote in local elections in Spain.

“Many of you have been in contact to ask for your right to vote in local elections here in Spain,” the embassy statement said, “following a ruling by the ECJ last week and subsequent press articles”.

They continued: ‘This judgment, which concerned a British national residing in France, does not affect the right of British nationals to vote and stand in local elections in Spain.’

The right of British citizens to vote and stand as candidates in Spanish local elections is protected by the bilateral agreement between the UK and Spain, and indicates that this option is available to British nationals who have lived in Spain and have been registered residents for more than 3 years. years.

“British nationals can vote and stand for local elections in Spain once they have resided for 3 years,” the embassy says.

To do this, you must:

  • be registered in the communal register of your place of residence (municipal padron)
  • confirm your registration on the electoral lists (electoral qualification), within the deadlines set by the electoral authorities before each election

They warned, however, that the local town hall (Council) cannot allow people to register to vote at other times.

The municipal elections in the region of Andalusia are taking place in Spain this week on June 19 in an autonomous community believed to have at least 80,000 British residents, most of whom live in the province of Malaga.

FILE PICTURE

MADRID – Spain has granted Spanish citizenship to a girl born on a migrant boat as her Cameroonian mother tried to reach Europe, Spanish authorities announced on Wednesday, adding it was a first for the country.

A court has granted “for the first time Spanish nationality to a little girl, born in May 2018 on board a migrant boat, which was heading for the Spanish coast”, the judicial authorities indicated on their website.

The court in the province of Guipuzcoa (north) said it based its decision on the best interests of the child, which was a “constitutionally legitimate objective”.

Leaving her stateless would have placed her in a “situation of inequality” compared to other children, meaning a “significant denial” of her fundamental rights, including the right to education, the court added.

Since arriving in Spain in the southern coastal town of Tarifa with her mother, the girl has lived in the countryside.

While her mother managed to be officially registered, she failed to obtain the same for her daughter, preventing her from accessing health or education.

The court’s decision ratifies an earlier court decision in November, challenged by the public prosecutor who had appealed.

Being born in Spain alone is not enough to obtain citizenship. Applicants must have Spanish parents, have lived in the country for 10 years or be married to a national.

Last year, more than 40,000 migrants arrived in Spain by sea, mostly from Morocco, according to the Interior Ministry.

Four migrants, including a young child, died and a fifth was missing on Wednesday after their boat sank while trying to reach Spain, local officials said.

Twelve people were rescued when the boat ran into trouble off the coast of the Murcia region in southeastern Spain, officials said.

KHARTOUM: Noureddine Jaber, a musician endowed with a unique half-guitar half-drum instrument, gives voice to the long marginalized Eastern communities of Sudan through a new album.
Originally from the city of Port Sudan on the Red Sea, Jaber belongs to the Beja people, a group of nomadic herders and herders with unique languages, culture, food and music.
They have borne the brunt of disenfranchisement, especially under President Omar Bashir who was ousted in 2019.
But the title of his debut album, which will be released later in June, conveys a different message: “Beja Power”.
During Bashir’s three decades of rule, non-Arab groups complained that his government allowed Arab culture to dominate, giving little representation to the country’s many ethnic minorities.
Also known as ‘Noori’, Jaber grew up devouring the rich heritage of distinct melodies of the Beja people whose roots go back millennia.
Although he first formed his group in 2006, it was only in recent months that he was able to record his first album, at the age of 47.
“Beja music is the window to the struggles of its people,” said Jaber, who called his six-member band “Dorpa,” which means “the mountain band” in Bedawit, a Beja language.
“The Beja have long been marginalized and we try to convey their voice through music.”
Although their region is a maritime trade hub known for its lush fertile fields and rich gold mines, it is also one of the poorest regions in Sudan, itself one of the most poor of the world.
At a studio in Omdurman, the capital’s twin city Khartoum, Jaber leads his band during rehearsals, producing a smooth, tapping sound somewhat akin to jazz.
“Let’s play ‘Saagama’,” Jaber told his bandmates: a bassist, saxophonist, rhythm guitarist, bongo player and conga drummer.
In his hand he holds his “tambo guitar”, an instrument he made from a guitar neck and his father’s vintage tamboura, a type of lyre played in East Africa.
Jaber’s invention is engraved with small seashells and a map of Africa.
“Saagama”, which means migration in Bedawit, is one of the most evocative tracks on the album, inspired by the ancient melodies of eastern Sudan.
Unlike him, the rest of the group hails from different parts of the ethnically diverse Sudan.
They say it took them years to learn the scales and keys of Beja music, traditionally played on drums and tamboura.
“I have never been to eastern Sudan. I only learned music from Noori,” said conga player Mohamed Abdelazim.
“The way they play drums in the east is different, very distinct. It has its own very particular rhythm.
According to Jaber, the under-representation of the Beja in Sudanese culture partly explains why many do not recognize their music.
Under Bashir, he said, “the rule was that Arab culture prevailed while other African ethnicities faded”.
Beja musicians regularly faced restrictions, with authorities often interrupting their performances.
“It could be for anything, lack of permits or because the audience was mixed groups” of men and women together, unlike those of the Arab performers, Jaber said.
Abdelhalim Adam, the band’s bassist, is from the Folani ethnic group in the Darfur region, at the other end of the country in western Sudan.
For him, joining the group was particularly meaningful.
“The struggle of the Beja is similar to that of our tribes in North Darfur,” Adam said. “They are also marginalized.”
Darfur has been wracked by civil war that began in 2003 when ethnic minority rebels took up arms against Bashir’s Arab-dominated government, which freed Janjawid militia accused of atrocities.
Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and millions have since been displaced.
The Beja also rebelled against Bashir’s government for over a decade. Eastern communities later joined nationwide calls for his ouster during protests that began in 2018.
A glimmer of hope has shone after the overthrow of Bashir and the installation of a fragile transition to civilian rule that is committed to ending marginalization in Sudan.

According to a recent study, one of the lowest rates of sexual activity in the country is in the province of Malaga.

A survey by a company based in the province of Malaga produced a Spanish ‘sex map’, in which it was revealed that Malaga has one of the lowest rates of sexual activity in the country, according to theopinionofmalaga.es.

Lubets, a company based in the province of Malaga, conducted this study in which they asked if little or a lot of sex had been practiced during the confinement. Then they also compared that to sex after the pandemic.

It turned out that the population of the province of Malaga was well below the national average, while the highest figures were recorded in Castile and Leon, the oldest community in the country.

According to the study, the national average is 2.5 times a week, but in Malaga this figure is just 1.9, making it the third lowest figure in Spain.

Cádiz is the Andalusian province closest to the average and tops the Andalusian ranking with an average of 2.4. It is followed by Sevilla with 2.3; Jaén on 2.2; Cordoba on 2.1; and Huelva and Almeria with 2.0). Meanwhile, Granada are in last place, along with Malaga, with an average of 1.9.

Surprisingly, Castilla y Leon, the province where sex is practiced the most, has one of the oldest communities in Spain. Specifically in Salamanca, which recorded a national level of 3.4 times per week. In Orense they also do it 3.4 times. They are followed by Avila, Zamora and Soria with 3.3, Caceres with 3.1 and Navarra with 3.0.

Madrid and Barcelona also do not exceed the national average and remain at 2.4 and 2.3 times respectively. Struggling in the romance department, the Balearic Islands is the autonomous community where sex is practiced the least, averaging just 1.8 times a week.

The Strategic Coordination Group met on Tuesday to discuss Gibraltar’s state of preparedness in the event that a case of Monkeypox is confirmed in Gibraltar.

As of Tuesday, some 179 cases of monkeypox had been confirmed in the UK and that number is expected to rise.

Cases have also been detected in Spain, notably in the province of Cadiz, but not in the Campo.

Monkeypox is linked to smallpox and cases are usually found in West and Central Africa, with the virus not often spreading elsewhere.

That’s why outbreaks reported in more than a dozen countries, including the UK, Portugal, Spain and the US, have alarmed public health experts.

The disease, which was first discovered in monkeys, is usually mild but can lead to serious illness in some cases.

Director of Public Health Dr Helen Carter said monkeypox is a rare disease that usually causes fever (over 37.9 degrees) and swollen glands, followed by a rash with blisters and crusts.

“The illness is usually mild and most people recover in three to four weeks,” read a statement from No.6 Convent Place.

“However, for a minority of people the illness is more serious, so it is important that anyone with symptoms call 111 (or 200 72266 from a phone outside Gibraltar).”

“People should watch out for symptoms of fever, swollen glands and rashes with blisters and scabs.”

“The virus is transmitted from person to person through close contact with wounds, bodily fluids, respiratory droplets and contaminated materials (bedding).”

The meeting was convened and chaired by Minister of Civil Contingencies, Samantha Sacramento, No.6 Convent Place.

Public Health Minister Dr John Cortes also attended the meeting alongside the Public Health Director (alternate) and the Medical Director.

“Ministers were briefed on the procedures and protocols established by the GHA, which have been developed over several weeks and are ready to be implemented,” the statement said.

“The GHA is now undertaking enhanced surveillance, having educated its frontline physicians and tested its intake and case management systems.”

“The GHA is in a good state of readiness and continues to monitor the situation on a daily basis.”

The GHA takes this opportunity to remind the public of the importance of good hygiene practices, including hand washing, which prevent the transmission of many viruses and diseases, the government spokesperson added.
