The Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa showed once again this Sunday its rejection of the wind farm projects for that area, considering that “they do not want to mortgage the mountains or replace their economic use by a monopoly of multinationals who want exploit a single resource and make the area exclusively dependent on a single company or a single resource “, according to one of its representatives, Sergio Díez.

This was pointed out by the representative of the Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa during the celebration in Pedrún de Torío of a meeting of 25 groups and entities of the province, from different areas, both social, educational, sports and ecological that have decided to join together to “be able to work together against the installation of wind projects in the Leonese mountain” and that in today’s meeting they decided to “set a roadmap to work together”.

“We are not against wind energy, it seems very necessary to us, but in addition to being renewable we remember that it also has to be sustainable, for which it has to be an energy that cannot be located anywhere, but has to cause a minimum impact on the environment “, explained Sergio Diez, while pointing out that” the mountain areas in which the macro-wind farms are projected are not the ideal ones “, which is why” they have generated a rejection in the population very important”.

For this reason, he considered it “essential” that the administrations “take into account that if these projects do not arise from the inhabitants themselves, the territory must be very aware that they are multinationals that come to plunder the resources in some way”, which is why that “they do not have the approval of the inhabitants.”

An approval that is not available because, according to the representative of the Platform, “what is not wanted is to mortgage the mountains, one of the main values ​​that we have, during the 30 years that the concessions of the parks “, since in addition” the areas are used as economic use at the level of pastures, livestock and other types of activities such as tourism, which today generates a fabric that is true that it is small and should be promoted “, but” very diverse “which” is not to be replaced by a monopoly of multinationals that want to exploit a single resource and make the area exclusively dependent on a single company or a single resource “.

Diez recalled that “there are many cases at the national level and in the province of León itself of what this type of monopolies mean in the end the day that companies decide to close and disappear because they are no longer profitable”, so that “the inhabitants become they are once again in an empty territory and without resources “and” they would throw away the last 15 years in which they are working to diversify the economic offer “.

For all these reasons, Sergio Diez set his sights on the actions taken by the Platform at the moment in which the administrative process of the wind farm projects begins in order to present allegations. For this reason, from the Platform for the Future of the Central Mountain of Leonesa, informative talks are being held in different parts of the province, while keeping an eye on these deadlines to start legal processes.

Here are which Realme Android 11 smartphones has already arrived

As widely expected, thanks to the collaboration between Google and the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers, just a few days after the release of Android 11 the new mobile operating system is already coming to some phones from different manufacturers. Today is the turn of Realme, which has just released the Realme UI 2.0 based on Android 11.


The Chinese manufacturer has not limited itself to bringing the latest version of Android to its smartphones, but has taken the opportunity to refresh its graphical interface and introduce features that are highly anticipated by users. A little update, a little restyling, therefore, to please everyone and keep the devices already sold updated (and therefore safe). Unfortunately UI 2.0 is not yet available for all Realme smartphones, but at least the rollout has officially started and users can hope to receive Android 11 and the new interface soon. Here are the main news introduced by Realme UI 2.0.

Realme UI 2.0: things change

With Realme’s UI 2.0 comes the advanced management of Dark Mode: Third-party apps, which have not yet been converted to dark mode by their developers, can be forced to use Dark Mode. It is also possible to choose the individual apps to be forced, in order to exclude those that give problems.

In Realme UI 2.0 also changes the drawer of the apps, which now allows you to sort the installed apps by name, when they were installed or the more or less frequent use made by the user. When you open the notification curtain, then, with UI 2.0 the rest of the screen is dimmed.

The possibilities to customize various details of thegraphic interface, from the style to the shape of the icons, passing from the layout of the drawer, the fonts used and the various animations.

On Realme UI 2.0 there are also the “Bubbles“, Ie the bubbles to group the conversations introduced by Android 11, and new settings for optimize the charge and charging the smartphone battery during the night: it is possible to lower the power of the device at night and use artificial intelligence so that the device learns what our favorite times are.

Realme UI 2.0: on which smartphones it is already available

UI 2.0 based on Android 11 is currently only available on very few phones Realme X50 Pro. For now it is being tested on a hundred units, as foreseen by the preview program of Android 11. We can expect Realme to begin the official distribution of UI 2.0 within a few weeks.

Android Auto is updated and a new interface arrives: what changes

Small update coming for the app of Android Auto: a Reddit user discovered it and posted the images of the new graphic interface that allows a faster and more intuitive connection between car and smartphone. This novelty seems to be still in the rollout phase and is not yet available for everyone, but some Italian users are already seeing it.


The new interface concerns the Android Auto settings, in particular those relating to the connection where the “Connect car“Was replaced by that”Connect a car“. One letter doesn’t change much, but subsequent screenshots do and show how Google is also working on spreading Wireless Android Auto for everyone, already announced a few days ago. However, the connection is also easier if you use a normal USB cable or Bluetooth connection. To receive this new interface, you need Android Auto version 5.5.602944 and Google Play Service version 20.30.19.

Android Auto: the new interface

From the screenings posted on Reddit you can see the new red button “+ CONNECT A CAR“In Android Auto settings. After pressing it, a screen appears that invites us to connect the USB cable between the phone and the vehicle, or to launch the wireless connection procedure.

The latter, as shown in the screenshot, is “Available on select 2021 vehicle models“. The wireless procedure can be done or via Wi-Fi (you need the 5 GHz connection) or through Bluetooth. If we choose the second we will have to tap the button to pair phone and car.

Android Auto Wireless for everyone

Google, therefore, continues to develop the Android Auto smartphone app in view of the biggest change: the extension of the wireless connection between smartphone and car to all phone models with operating system Android 11 and Wi-Fi connection 5. At the moment, in fact, this type of connection is only available on Google’s Nexus and Pixel smartphones and on some Samsung models.

The new interface goes in the same direction: simplify the connection on as many cars and smartphones as possible, to push the use of Android Auto instead of the infotainment systems integrated in the car, while waiting for the new operating system Android Auto OS be integrated into more and more cars.

What is Windows FX, the operating system that nobody knows about

Are you tired of the constant problems caused by Windows 10 updates, but you don’t have the courage to change the operating system because you fear having problems with the change of the interface? Then WindowsFX it’s the right operating system for you: it looks like Windows 10, but it’s actually Linux.


WindowsFX, which has recently arrived at version 10.3 and is actually called LinuxFX, is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 20.04, with a Cinnamon desktop environment. But looking at it you wouldn’t say it at all, because the Brazilian developers of this Linux distro “Windows like“They did a painstaking job in reproducing the graphical interface of the Microsoft operating system: the Start menu, the File Explorer, the desktop and even the desktop backgrounds are difficult to distinguish from the original Windows ones. But not only: there is also the imitation of the assistant Cortana and it’s called “Helloa“.

WindowsFX: how to install it

The installation of WindowsFX it is similar to that of other Linux distributions, but it has a plus: the first time the operating system is started, the Helloa assistant helps you to install graphics drivers, to correctly set the screen resolution and to set up some other fundamental setting operations to start working. As for the apps, however, of course WindowsFX digests perfectly all those for Linux, but also has another plus: through Wine you can also use many native apps for Windows and install them through their respective files .exe e .msi.

WindowsFX also works on ARM

There is one last very interesting aspect of WindowsFX: can also run on hardware configurations with ARM processor. This is a weapon not to be underestimated because the trend of the next few years is already clear: ARM processors will gain more and more ground on X86 / X64 architectures, especially for mobile devices, so much so that even Microsoft has already developed its official version Windows “ARM Edition“.

But this version, paradoxically, has a limit compared to WindowsFX: it does not support 64-bit apps in X64 architecture. If we compare WindowsFX to Windows 10 ARM Edition, therefore, we could almost say that the copy is better than the original.

TEST of Valorant: the competitive FPS of Riot Games does not clutch

For almost 10 years, Riot Games was only known for League of Legends, a MOBA free-to-play ultra popular, both with gamers casuals that on the professional scene esports. The studio still decided to diversify with theauto battler Teamfight Tactics and the card game Legends of Runeterra, taking place in the universe of LoL, But with Valorant, Riot Games offers a completely new competition-oriented first-person shooter… but still very inspired by Counter-Strike. Worth a visit?

Riot Games is not reinventing the wheel, it just takes the codes of CS.

Valorous Launch Art (2)Let’s start at the beginning, Valorant is therefore a FPS opposing two teams of five players, with a team ofForwards having to drop a bomb, nicknamed the Spike (no relation to the blond in Buffy the Vampire Slayer), while the Defenders must prevent its explosion, by killing all opponents before the Spike either posed or by defusing it. Players have at their disposal several types of weapons, and armor, to buy for money, which is won by killing opponents, playing the objective and winning the round. The losers still get some cash to bounce back. The game takes place in 25 innings, or rounds, at the most, the first team arriving at 13 innings won wins, the teams change sides (Attack or Defense) after 12 rounds. If you have ever seen part of Counter-Strike, you know what we’re talking about here, Riot Games does not reinvent the wheel, it simply takes the codes of CS, which have proven themselves for over 20 years.

Where Valorant brings a little originality, it is through Agents, playable characters with unique abilities, to buy like weapons, and an ultimate ability to unlock by killing enemies, capable of flipping a round. These 11 Agents are quite varied we have for example Hanzo Sova the archer capable of revealing enemies with a sonic arrow, Wise can heal allies, Omen moving quickly in the shadows, Phoenix able to throw fireballs, Raze and his explosive and incendiary grenade, Cypher and its surveillance camera or Breach, able to disorient enemies for a few seconds. If these characters inevitably make you think of Overwatch, they ultimately have nothing to do with the game of Blizzard, it should rather be compared to Agents of Rainbow Six Siege, in the sense that the powers are certainly practical, but not necessarily there to ensure victory in a duel. No, Valorant is a game that puts everything on the skill, and despite these impressive powers, it takes just one or two bullets in the head to eliminate an enemy, the duels are often very short, the time to kill is therefore very weak, it’s all a question of reflexes, anticipation, taking lines and positions, and talent.

Valorous Launch Art PNG (3)No way to rush into the pile, Valorant is a slow, tactical game that requires patience and composure., to control the dispersion of the balls, and it really is not made for everyone. Do you want to start a game (which lasts around 30-40 minutes) to relax in the evening? Forget that, in Valorant, it is necessary try hard, play seriously without respite and give yourself 200%otherwise you will spend more time watching your teammates continue the round than playing it yourself. Furthermore, if some Agents have very enjoyable and useful powers, others are especially there as supports and therefore less fun to play, but you must especially count on very slow invocations of power, they’re really there for the tactical side, and face to face, it is unimaginable to launch an ability to try to win the duel.

Valuing is bound to evolve over the years, welcoming new Agents, but also new cards, because at the moment, there are only four proposed in the game. It’s not much, but Riot Games wanted to focus on quality, create maps iconic, easily recognizable and complete.

Valorant cannot stand out with its very classic artistic direction.

Valorous Launch Art (1)It must be recognized that they are rather well thought out, with unique features, like teleporters on Bind, doors closing to block areas on Ascent, a third bomb point on Haven and a very vertical architecture on Split. Except that four cards is not enough, the player quickly went around, but the level design remains interesting, there are many possibilities of approach, difficult to hold an area as the openings are numerous, obviously impossible to camp on a position, because even if Valuing is a slow game (understand that it is tactical and punitive), you have to know how to react, like going to another point when the Spike is posed, running knife in hand (faster) or checking angles while walking, to reduce noise.

Riot Games has also worked rather well on the sound part of Valuing, especially the weapons, which all make a very distinctive noise, allowing them to be recognized on the first shot. This is handy in somewhat complicated duels, because if you are armed with a Spectrum (cheap and silent rifle, not practical at long range) and you hear a Operator in the distance (a sniper who can one shot a player without a shield from a ball in the chest), it is better to flee and find another path rather than attempting the duel, which will probably result in a death on your side. Walking therefore reduces footfall noise, because otherwise Agents are noisy, and it is easy to hear them coming from several meters away, not very practical to keep the element of surprise. The concept is good, it is taken from Counter-Strike, but as is, sound spatialization is sometimes rather muddled in Valorant, it is not uncommon not to know exactly where the noise comes from (and therefore the enemy), only a vague idea of ​​the place, on the left or on the right for example. For a shooting game that is also precise and demanding in terms of skill and responsiveness, it’s still a shame, there is still work to refine on the audio.

Valuable Launch Art PNG (2)Technically speaking, Valorant holds the road, Riot Games wanted to optimize its FPS so that it can be played on as many PCs as possible, and it is rather successful, even if it is better to avoid having an old machine, or a computer designed for office use. With the graphics settings at a minimum, the title did not have a framerate at 60 fps constant on our Acer swift 3 ((Ryzen 5 3500U, Vega 8, 8 GB of RAM), which is still a shame. However, the game does not seem to be very demanding in terms of resources, the graphics are very refined, the sets are not very detailed, Riot Games opted for a little visual style cartoonesque and colorful that will age very well over the years, as League of Legends. Blizzard had done the same for Overwatch, but unfortunately, Valorant cannot stand out with its very classic artistic direction. The 11 Agents are very uneven, some are really charismatic, but others seem straight out of an Asian mobile game, the cards have no stamp or elements that catch the eye, everything has been thought of to prioritize the gameplay, but a more refined artistic direction would not have been luxury to make the players dream. Right now, Valuing doesn’t really have lore, we saw Phoenix and Jett compete in a city suspended at the launch of the game, Riot Games no doubt has long-term ambitions, but for the moment, Valorant is very flat.

Game free-to-play oblige, Riot Games obviously offers microtransactions in Valorant, and there is not much to complain about, because they are purely cosmetic. Players can unlock, gaining experience, or purchasing the Battle Pass Premium, of skins of weapons, graffiti, key chains to hang on weapons, player cards and Radianite Points, the latter serving to improve the skins weapons with very nice special animations. Everything is cosmetic, and yet, the player is not able to select all Agents from the start. Rest assured, the blue card can be stored, it is actually necessary to pass the first 10 levels to unlock two Agents additional, which is done very quickly (in 2 to 3 hours approximately). For the others, you have to activate contracts to obtain cosmetic elements on 10 levels, the fifth unlocking theAgent in question. This is much longer, so choose your contract carefully, a quick tour of the mode Training to find out their powers before unlocking them doesn’t hurt.

Because yes, Valorant offers several other game modes in addition to the classic unclassified games, starting with a mode Training, which is actually the tutorial, but improved. The player can thus embody theAgent he wants, no need to have unlocked it, then go through a small level to familiarize himself with the aim, the powers as well as the pose or the defusing of the Spike.

In terms of toxicity, Riot Games has a long way to go.

Valorous Launch Art PNG (3)It is also the ideal place to explore the game’s menus, in particular the tab allowing you to customize your reticle. It is basic white, and moves according to the player’s movements, which is not ideal for everyone, players can create the pointer adapted to their habits easily, a welcome option. Unfortunately, the classified games are no longer active (we will come back to this below), but Riot Games added in this version 1.0 a mode Spike rush, much more nervous than the basic one. The goal is the same, put or defuse the Spike, but the players start each round with all their powers, the ultimate abilities load faster, the equipped weapon changes with each round and the orbs give buffs, such as improved damage, speed, or even a better weapon. If there is one thing that is peculiar to Valuing, these are good these orbs, which are normally used to gain a point of ultimate capacity when they are harvested, but placed in open places, it is risky to linger there without having checked all the angles. To return to the mode Spike rush, it is a little less tactical than the classic, there is no saving of money, obviously no eco rounds, and the first team arriving at four wins won the game, which therefore lasts much less . For once, it is a game mode much less frustrating and more conducive to be played for fun without taking the lead, unlike the unclassified parts.

Yes, even in the unclassified mode, the try hard is total because Riot Games did not add the classified parts in this version 1.0, which is a shame, for a lot of things. Most players are therefore in the basic mode, and balancing is completely absent, it is not uncommon to find yourself in a low-level team and face five other much more experienced players… At least the game doesn’t last long, but this kind of experience is particularly frustrating and does not really make you want to continue playing, because the progression curve is currently very low. Impossible to learn from mistakes without kill cam for example, and anyway, take a duel against an opponent who has 15 years of experience on Counter-Strike doesn’t help anything, it’s the headshot and the low-level player spends more time watching teammates than playing.

In addition to this balancing problem, players who are a little nervous are all in the unrated mode, and toxicity issue, Riot Games still has a long way to go. At the launch of the game, the first time, a box is displayed, recalling the rules of good conduct. It’s very cute, but once in part, it’s the festival with dubious pseudonyms and insults, whether via voice or text chat. After a few minutes, the average player drops the case, deactivates voice chat and mute the other players at the start of each game, this is clearly not the right solution to play Valuing, which is meant to be a team game, but as long as the classified games have not cleared these haters, we must be content with that. The game being free-to-play, Riot Games will have a hard time permanently banishing toxic players from Valorant, who already has the same insulting community as League of Legends and Overwatch

highlighting launch art 17 00953515

Valorant is therefore a somewhat special game, in the sense that it is clear that Riot Games intends to do her FPS a competitive title that will be present on the professional scene for many years, such as League of Legends, but at the moment it is difficult to imagine how this challenge will be met. The artistic direction is really not up to par, the Agents lack charisma unlike Champions of LoL, the cards are tasteless, the absence of classified parts will discourage many neophytes who end up with try hardeurs in unrated mode, and the title has quite a few small flaws, like the inability to unlock a Agent selected at the start of the game. Sure, updates will follow in a row to improve the gaming experience over the weeks, months and years, but for now, Valorant remains a FPS really too similar to Counter-Strike, with sympathetic powers, but who fail to revolutionize the gameplay. The studio knows how to make successful games, it has shown it with League of Legends, but with Valuing, he still has everything to prove.

Valorant is available in free-to-play exclusively on PC.

TEST from BioShock: The Collection, from Rapture to Columbia, a Switch port that provides?

Cult franchise FPS/RPG, spiritual successor to System Shock, BioShock made players dream with a first episode to Rapture in 2007, a sequel still underwater in 2010 and a third episode in the clouds of Columbia in 2013. The trilogy was brought together in 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in BioShock: The Collection, with remasterings of the first two components and all the additional content gathered in a single compilation, which has just landed on Nintendo Switch. It was time for us to dive back to Rapturethen take off again Columbia.

BioShock: The Collection on Switch is worth the detour if you plan to play it on the go, or if you haven’t done the additional content.

BioShock may be 13 years old, this is the version Remastered, like the second part, and in mode Portable, the titles are really impressive. The graphics are beautiful on the small screen of the Switch, the titles are fluid, even when using the Plasmids, which will amaze you with their particle effects. It’s a treat to explore Rapture in BioShock Remastered and BioShock 2 Remastered under these conditions, and the only shadows on the board come from the controls (X to jump, it’s not at all intuitive) and HD vibrations, far too strong, the player deactivates them after a few minutes as they become invasive. On a TV, the visual result is unfortunately less attractive. The first two parts show their ages, the textures are often muddled, you should not look at the walls or the floor too closely, thealiasing is present in certain areas with strong dynamic light sources, it is a little more chaotic and the graphics remind that the games are already old, technically speaking, even with the effort of Remastered.

Regarding BioShock Infinite, it’s a little different, the title has not been remastered, it is proposed here in its Complete Edition, simply adding content to the base game. But like this third shutter, which forsakes as a reminder Rapture for the city in the clouds of Columbia, is more recent, well, again on the small screen of the Switch in Portable mode, it’s a real treat. The title has almost no aliasing, and even offers very beautiful lighting effects. On a television, the game is more shimmering than its predecessors, the textures are really very correct, the effects of particles of the powers are successful, as well as the lighting, it is nevertheless necessary to count on a littlealiasing around certain elements of the decor, which should be avoided looking too closely there again. Generally, BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition goes very well on the Switch, even seven years after its release.

BioShock The Collection 26 03 2020 screenshot 4We are not going to represent you the games, it is a reminder of FPS with powers and mechanics of RPG pretty basic, they’re cult, and if you’ve never done it before, it’s time to fall for this BioShock: The Collection on Switch, which brings together all three, as well as all the additional content. Documentary and 3D models for the first part, small extension and challenges for the second, two scripted extensions and various bonus packs (offering small advantages at the start of the game), the compilation is generous, and it has suddenly a nice interest if you had done only the basic games at the time. Otherwise, the only advantage of this port on Switch remains the possibility of taking these titles everywhere with you, which is already good.

Finally, a quick word about a concern that raged on social networks at the launch of BioShock: The Collection, the need to connect online to the servers of 2K Games. We had already launched BioShock Remastered before seeing this, and therefore accepted the conditions of use with the network activated. Once the Switch has gone into mode Plane, we launched for the first time BioShock 2 Remastered and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, and we were able to play it without any worries. So we launched BioShock Remastered, with mode Plane, on a secondary account, and again, no problem to play without the Internet. To note that 2K Games provided us with download codes for the games (which actually weigh 12.5 GB, 10.4 GB and 20.7 GB!), impossible to say if it’s only the physical version that contains a DRM, but that doesn’t seem to be the case either.

H2x1 NSwitch BioShockTheCollection

BioShock: The Collection is therefore a port as there are many on Nintendo Switch, offering three titles (and their additional content) with the possibility of playing it everywhere. In mode Portable, it’s a treat, the titles are really pretty and even the first part has almost not aged, while on a television, it’s a little less beautiful, you have to manage to overcome some fairly present visual defects. As usual, BioShock: The Collection on Switch is worth the detour if you plan to play it on the go, or if you haven’t done the additional content. But if you have never touched one of these titles, this is really the time to crack, these are excellent FPS/RPG with a real atmosphere and a well written script, if the genre does not put you off, you have to go ahead and buy it, “please”.

BioShock: The Collection is available on Nintendo Switch for € 39.99 at Fnac or at Amazon.fr, and for € 49.99 at Micromania.

  • A cult trilogy in the same place
  • Rich content
  • In Portable mode, it’s a success

The management of the coronavirus pandemic does not take its toll on the PSOE. On the contrary, according to the CIS barometer, the Socialists would achieve today a31.1%of the votes, three points more than in the 10-N elections and only one tenth less than in the last barometer of April

This is the prediction of the Center led byJos Flix Tezanoswhich gives the PP a20.3%of voting intention, half a point less than what he obtained in the November elections and only two tenths more than the April forecast.

Also declining in the CIS forecast is the force led by Santiago Abascal, Vox, which is credited with an intention to vote the11.3%and United We Can, to achieve a11.5%.

In this new installment of the barometer, all the main political forces, with the exception of the PSOE and Ciudadanos, descend in their electoral forecast regarding the results of November 10.

Citizen Upload

The rise of forceorangeIt is the most striking. According to the CIS, if elections are held today, Ciudadanos, under the leadership of Ins Arrimadas, would get 10.5% of the votes, almost four points more than 10-N. A very important comeback that would place them only eight tenths from Vox and one point from Unidas Podemos.

According to the survey, Santiago Abascal’s party will lose, at least in percentage, the status of third parliamentary force. On this occasion, Unidas Podemos would overcome it, although only by tenths. Pablo Iglesias’ party, today forming part of the Government, loses more than one point with respect to what it obtained in the 10-N elections.

If the strong rise that the CIS predicts for Citizens is confirmed, the PSOE would be in a position to turn its eyes towards this formation of a liberal center as a substitute for its alliance with United We Can, although this turn would short-circuit the possibility that the pact would be supported by the independence and nationalist parties.

The barometer also indicates a distance of almost 11 points between the PSOE and the PP, in favor of the former. A much greater distance than the 10-N occurred when the difference between the two forces was just over seven points. The coronavirus crisis, according to CIS forecasts, will be electorally benefiting the PSOE and seriously damaging the PP. And this despite the fact that, according to the same barometer, almost half of the citizen, specifically, a48.4%, He claims to have little or no confidence in the policies that the Executive is deploying to control the virus.

In any case, the survey also shows that, unlike the scenario that was opened in the last elections, now the two main political forces will manage to exceed 50% of the votes together.

As for the Catalan independence formations, ERC, JxCat and the CUP, the barometer shows clear decreases for all of them. Catalan republicans will lose seven tenths going from3.61%achieved 10-N by2.9%; JxCat, the party led in the distance by the fugitive Puigdemont and who occupies with Quim Torra the presidency of the Generalitat, will lose almost half of his votes passing from2.19which I achieved in November only1.2%of the votes if the ballot boxes were opened now. The CUP would also see a reduction in its voter pool that 10-N was1.02%, which made him two seats in Congress, and now it would only be one0.7%.

The PNV, for its part, would record a cut of almost three tenths and Bildu, of more than four. Both in the case of the Catalan and the Basque forces, the CIS forecasts seem to point to the PSOE as the main beneficiary of its declines.

Contract for 90,000 euros

Field work on this barometer was carried out between May 4 and 13. On this occasion, as already happened in the survey carried out last March, the CIS has conducted its interviews by telephone and not in person. For this, I hired the Intercampo company with which Tezanos has worked on several occasions for the surveys carried out by theSystem Foundation, who also presides. The cost of the contract to carry out the April and May barmeters amounts to90,000 euros.

Biased questions

The CIS publishes this barometer after the controversy that arose last month when in its latest study it included biased questions about information management in a time of pandemic. The president of the center, the socialist Jos Flix Tezanos, appeared precisely this afternoon in theConstitutional Commissionof Congress to give explanations about it. He does this forced by parliamentary groups, with the exception of the PSOE and United Podemos, which argued that, due to his advanced age, he was included in a risk group for contagion.

In its last barometer, that of April, the CIS granted a voting intention of 31.2% to the PSOE, more than three points above the result obtained on 10-N; 21.1% to the PP, just three tenths more than in the November elections; 13% to Vox, two points below what was achieved in the elections; 12% to Unidas Podemos and 7.6% to Ciudadanos.

Outdoor exercise during the pandemic: Serious danger or minimal risk?

Updated

You will have seen the images: Hyde Park full of runners, the banks of the Seine River when it is seven o’clock in the afternoon, the Tiergarten … In most countries in Europe, as well as in the entire United States, exercise is allowed in the air free in full confinement, but in Spain – as well as in some regions of Italy – it is prohibited. It is one of the reasons why the Government claims to have taken “the most restrictive measures” on the continent and, at the same time, one of the first measures
