1. The European Commission tells Sánchez that he can “intervene” in the face of rising lights. The Government has in its hand the tools to prevent the greatest escalation of light in history from affecting the most vulnerable consumers and companies in our country. This is stated by the European Energy Commissioner, Kadri Simson, in a reply sent yesterday to the spokesperson for the popular in the European Parliament, Dolors Montserrat, which leaves no room for interpretation. Simson recalls in the text, to which ABC has had access, that companies “are free to set the price at which they supply electricity to customers” and remarks that “Member States must guarantee effective competition.” But it also emphasizes that “in parallel, the Member States may apply some safeguards, such as public interventions in setting prices for the supply of electricity to domestic customers in situations of energy poverty or vulnerable.”

2. The PSOE used the Faffe foundation days before dissolving it to plug into the Junta de Andalucía. The Andalusian Foundation for Training and Employment Fund (Faffe) functioned as “a placement agency for the Andalusian PSOE” during its eight years of life (2003-2011), according to the description that the Central Operative Unit (UCO) of the Civil Guard collected in a police report in 2018. What was not known and has just uncovered an audit carried out by the Andalusian Employment Service (SAE) is that the foundation of the Board dedicated to training the unemployed
constituted a ‘drain’ to work in the Autonomous Administration
until a day before the Government of José Antonio Griñán decided to close it. Weeks before its extinction, the Socialist Executive hired 16 people who had no previous employment relationship with the public entity aimed at promoting employment, which was directed by Fernando Villén Rueda, who is going to be tried for spending public money in brothels among the years 2004 and 2010.

3. The PP communities will develop their own curricula up to the legal limit to stop the indoctrination of the ‘Celaá law’. The autonomous communities where the Popular Party governs will try, with all the means that their powers allow them, to deactivate the ‘ideological bias’ that they see in the ‘Celaá law’. From the national headquarters of Genoa, the PP will coordinate its five regional governments to act as a containment dam against the indoctrination that, in its opinion, involves the development of the Lomloe, better known as the ‘Celaá law’ after the controversy unleashed by the drafts of the royal decrees of minimum education that establish how the subjects will be taught with the new norm.

4. The Prosecutor’s Office estimates the money that Moreno’s plot would have defrauded the banks at at 85 million. The Prosecutor’s Office of the National Court estimates at least 85 million euros the money that the alleged criminal organization dismantled in the Titella operation would have swindled the banks, among whose leaders it places the producer José Luis Moreno. The fraud was perpetrated through cheating with checks and promissory notes or through the granting of credit lines “under deception or in collusion” with employees of the entities. In a letter that works in the summary of the case, to which ABC had full access, the prosecutor details that the 26 main investigated – in total there are fifty – “have been dedicating themselves to obtaining money from banks”, some funds that are transferred in cash “to third parties that justify the trip by means of false invoices.” Part of those funds would benefit Moreno.

5. The 60-year-olds, most affected in the fifth wave by vaccination with AstraZeneca. The decision to inoculate the 60-year-olds with AstraZeneca led to a delay in their protection against the coronavirus due to the long interval in administration between the two doses. During that wait, the fifth wave rose at the beginning of the summer with special damage to the unimmunized. The young population, then still without access to the vaccine, have been the most affected by this wave. Most of the infections have focused on their age groups, especially among the twentysomethings, increasing their presence in hospitals as well. The fifth wave, however, has also had another protagonist, the sixties. The percentage of hospitalized people between the ages of 60 and 69 has not fallen to the same extent as other age groups that, like them, started vaccination before the summer.

6. Cruel chance for Villarreal. Chance, fate or temperance before a penalty was a cruel cocktail for Villarreal, who lost the final of the European Super Cup after an even, intense and beautiful match in which Chelsea added another title. Albiol’s failure in the last shot does not cloud a great night for Villarreal, a worthy representative of Spanish football against an economic ocean liner like Chelsea. The champion of the Champions, as is customary, knocked down the one of the Europa League. Joining the elite leads to nights like this. Play a final in a stadium in an unusual city, Belfast, so unknown, the star of so many movies, songs or books related to terrorism and the IRA. Take on Chelsea, the precursor of the supposedly modern football of the gas or oil oligarchs that we live in today. A team that was just one of the heap, a passenger in London’s most chic neighborhood and with less football tradition than a billionaire’s taste, became a powerhouse.
