Grab a coffee and let’s get down to business. Hello!
where does the day go
the toxic hug
Voting has consequences. The new Government of PP and Vox in Castilla y León has decided cut subsidies in half that unions and employers receive to carry out their work of labor negotiation, risk prevention and professional guidance. The hack is 20 million. They say it is a “superfluous” expense and, meanwhile, the right-wing coalition Spending in high positions has skyrocketed. They announced it yesterday, and I have a feeling it’s not by chance. Macarena Olona, her candidate in Andalusia, was able to use it at night in the electoral debate on Canal Sur to say that she will do the same. He did it in the first minute of presentation. Very proud. I have never seen anyone announce a social “cut” with such a broad smile without making it up with something else. Juanma Moreno has spent the entire debate trying to avoid Vox’s toxic embrace, culminating in an embarrassing moment: “Mr. Moreno, look at me…”, said Olona, who smiled at him and held out his hand to formalize the coalition. Moreno has lowered his head without knowing what to say. She will end up accepting that hand, but after 19J.
Here is a chronicle of the night, in which the left-wing forces played a very good role, each one in its own record. That does not mean that things look bad for the PP, which widens its advantage over the PSOE and also over Vox, according to the average we have made with published surveys.
Idealism and Watergate
Five decades of idealism: the Watergate case is a lesson in a few things (journalism as a public service, political responsibility over partisan, intolerance of corruption…) that today seem to be faltering.
don’t miss it
- Algeria, yes or no. There is a bit of confusion about what exactly is the status of relations between Spain and Algeria after the Algerian anger over the new Spanish relationship with Morocco. But the North African country does not want to finish breaking because European sanctions can be played.
- Sanitary garbage. I had never considered what happens to the waste generated by a hospital. It seems that most governments do not, which is more serious. Thirty-year-old laws regulate what is done with garbage, among which it is estimated that there is 10% of hazardous waste.
- The jokes of the teachers. Anda that I do not remember well the jokes that some high school teachers made to some classmates and especially classmates. “Barbi” (because he had long hair), “the one with a happy life” (typical slimy professor who blames the victim for his attraction), etc. how glad i am that now is being fined.
everything is politics
- the english bull. The ban on advertising on national roads in Spain has a reprieve: the Osborne bull. It is a symbol of traditional and natural Spain, but the story is not exactly purebred but of the first glimpses of a globalization where foreign fortunes exploited local resources: the founder of Osborne wineries was an English merchant who decided to set up his own winery in The Port of Santa Maria. There are many interesting details here.
- the translators They are essential so that great books do not end up being a winding road where you can go off at every turn. And yet, it is the most precarious job in the literary world. Beyond work, I am fascinated by this idea from one of the sources of the text: “If you have to be precise, you need freedom. In the words of the writer Andrés Neuman, we could say that a translation is a fiction based on real linguistic facts”.
- Companies that put journalists. It seems that it is news only for football lovers, but that is how things start that then make the leap to other areas. The Football League (a private business) has renewed the sale of its broadcasting rights to Movistar + but with a new clause in the contract: either they pay an extra, or the journalists and narrators of the matches they will be put by the private entity itself.
Come on, tomorrow we read each other again.
