This week starts off mild, but summer is here to stay!

Mild summer.
The beginning of the week will register mild temperatures, but as it progresses, temperatures will rise to more common levels for the time of year.

Last weekend was clearly marked by the very high temperatures that were felt, especially on Saturday. During that day, temperatures surpassed 40⁰C in the interior of the country, mainly in the South.

Already on Sunday, temperatures dropped substantially, with the northerly effect on the west coast being more visible.. Even so, temperatures remained high, south of the Tagus River, especially in the interior of Alentejo.

The descent will continue at the beginning of this week, with temperatures remaining relatively low for the season.. However, will the end of the week be the same?

First days of the week will be marked by relatively low temperatures

This midsummer week will start shy in the North of the country. A cooler air mass from the Atlantic is influencing the weather since yesterday, mainly in the Northwest of the mainland. Even in the south of the country, districts such as Beja and Évora, traditionally very hot at this time of year, will register temperatures well below what was seen at the weekend. Maximum temperatures can go down to around 10⁰C.

Despite a hot weekend, a mass of cold air from the Atlantic came to bring down temperatures all over the country.

the day of today it will be marked by cloudiness, especially on the western coast, as well as some rain in the Minho region, in the afternoon and at the end of the day. Temperatures will drop abruptly, especially on the coast. Already the wind will blow light to moderate from the North quadrant in the morning, spent blowing from the West in the afternoon.

The temperature recovery trend starts on Tuesday, as can be seen from the analysis of the ECMWF model. Despite this, the western coast will continue to be affected by the north winds, which, in a way, prevent the maximum temperatures from reaching very high values. In terms of cloudiness, the day will generally be clear or slightly cloudy, the exception being Minho and Douro Litoral, where there will be some cloudiness in the morning.

On Wednesday the temperatures will return to what is most usual for summer: above 30⁰C! The entire interior of the country, from the Douro Superior and Dão valleys, and from Castelo Branco to Beja, will record temperatures ranging between 30⁰C and 35⁰C. For the city of Portalegre and for the county seat, Marvão, a maximum of 33⁰C is forecast, while for Elvas the forecast indicates 34⁰C.

The island territory, as usual, has different patterns of temperature evolution. With minimum temperatures very close to maximum, summer remains relatively mild. In the Azores Archipelago, the maximum temperature will not exceed 24⁰C and the minimum will not go below 17⁰C. As for the Madeira Archipelago, temperatures will vary within this range, and throughout the week, mainly on the north coast of Madeira Island, cloudiness will be a constant presence.

In the final stretch of the week, the heat returns

Thursday will be marked by the return of high temperatures. Mercury will exceed 30⁰C in most of the country. The city of Faro will be an exception as the maximum temperature will be around 29⁰C. Already Porto, like Lisbon, will record a maximum temperature of around 32⁰C. The sky will generally be light cloudy or clear, with the exception of the areas of the North coast that will present some cloudiness during the morning.

Curiously, the Algarve coast will be an exception to the rest of the country, as the highest temperatures will be registered at the beginning of the week, Monday and Tuesday, and as the week progresses, temperatures, for example in the cities of Faro and Olhão, drop to values ​​slightly below 30⁰C.

ECMWF Temperature.
The maximum temperatures will surpass 30ºC in much of the country, as early as next Thursday.

Friday will represent the apogee of maximum temperatures in this weekly analysis. According to the ECMWF prediction model, the high temperatures (above 35ºC) will be felt practically throughout the country, with the exception of the coast, mainly north of Cabo Carvoeiro. The city of Beja can count on a maximum temperature of around 38ºC. Vila de Nisa with 39⁰C, Vila Velha de Rodão with 40⁰C and even Castelo Branco with 38⁰C will be among the areas of the country where mercury will rise the most.

Are these temperatures an omen for a hot weekend?

short tournament but not so short and the VAR in the waiting room

The Professional League 2021, the next First Division competition that will be played in 25 days, all against all in a single round, without relegation, but with classics, already has a start date. It will start on Friday, July 16, a week after the end of the Copa América 2021 that is being played in Brazil.

Next Tuesday, June 29, at 5:00 p.m., the fixture draw will take place that will define the confrontations and the days. It will be held at the offices on the first floor of the Professional League with the presence, via Zoom, of the leaders. Without anyone wanting to go in person, you can do so but taking into account all the health precautions required by the League.

The championship will begin on Friday, July 16. That is, after the final of the Copa América Brasil 2021 -on July 10- and on the weekend that remains in the middle of the comings and goings of the cup. The end is projected for Sunday, December 12, while on Friday, December 17, the Champions Trophy will be played between the winner of this tournament and Colón, winner of the Professional League Cup.

This Tuesday the draw for the new championship will take place, which will start a week after the Copa América. Columbus was the last to celebrate a title. Photo: Photo: EFE / Andrés Larrovere.

There will be 26 participating teams again, but it will not be a cup, but it will be a league in which They will play all against all, to a wheel, throughout 25 dates. Yes, a short and long tournament at the same time due to the number of participants. Yes, again close to 30 and against the most competitive leagues on the planet that have between 18 and 20 participants. The monstrosity that Julio Grondona bequeathed, far from being deactivated, does not lose its validity.

No declines at stake, although it will be added for the averages -the same thing that will happen with the regular phase of the cup of the first semester-, the tournament will end on December 12 and on the date of the legislative elections it will be played between the Wednesday and Friday before the elections.

There will be classics, and although it had transpired that the localities would be reversed (for example, River-Boca would have to play in the Monumental stadium because the last ones were played in the Bombonera), for now there is no confirmed. The idea of ​​several leaders is that all parties go to a draw. If he wins this position, it is likely -for example- that a team will have to play against the big 5 on the road.

And the VAR? It is not established yet and there is no confirmed date for it to start working in Argentine soccer. The installations are already being carried out on the AFA premises, in Ezeiza, where the base of operations will be, with 13 rooms planned for each game. What is being solved now is the connectivity with the stadiums so that there is a connection with the center set up in the AFA. The latter is the most complicated because “requires special technical engineering” League sources explained.

If there is equality in the first place, as has happened lately, there will be a tiebreaker. The champion will also go to the Copa Libertadores 2022, as well as the champion of the Diego Maradona 2021 Cup. Those located in positions 4, 5 and 6 of the summation of the tables of the entire season -the two semesters- will also go to the Liberators. The qualifiers for the South American 2022 will come from the same table.

In the event that the new champion is also Colón, his rival will come out of a tiebreaker between the two seconds. So in this hypothetical scenario, Racing would already have its place assured.

Several degradations should indeed cross our country this week. Under the showers, the feeling could sometimes become autumnal. A rise in temperatures is planned at the very end of the week.

More thunderstorms!

Calmer weather is setting up this Monday morning over most regions with beautiful clearings. Some stormy showers still broke out between the Loire Valley, the Massif Central and Aquitaine. A much cloudier sky also affects the regions bordering the Channel, the Hauts-de-France and the Ardennes. A cloudier sky is also required on the eastern facade of Corsica.
This afternoon, thunderstorms will once again affect all central and western regions with all the same beautiful clearings between the showers. Locally, strong thunderstorms accompanied by hail may affect the center-east of the country. The sky should remain cloudy over the Cotentin, Nord and Pas-de-Calais with showers. The best clearings are expected for this afternoon between Picardy and Lorraine and Alsace. The sun will also be generous around the Mediterranean and in Corsica.

A pleasant day will concern the regions located north of the Loire with beautiful clearings and a mild spring. On Friday, further degradation is expected to affect regions near the English Channel with rains. The further south we go, the more sunny and warmer the weather will be.

The next weekend should be a little more mixed, especially between the southwest and northeast regions with sometimes heavy skies and showers. The Mediterranean will retain frankly sunny conditions. In the northwest, clearings should prevail over the weekend with seasonal temperatures.


Differences between Nicolás Trotta and Daniel Gollan due to the return of face-to-face classes in the province of Buenos Aires

The ministers of National Education, Nicolás Trotta, and of Buenos Aires Health, Daniel Gollan, expressed differences of criteria to determine if face-to-face classes will return in the province of Buenos Aires next week.

While Trotta affirmed with certainty that the virtual classes will continue in the Buenos Aires district, the same day that the decree expires with the current restrictions; Gollan was more cautious and indicated that they will wait for the numbers for the next few days to define the return.

We do not pretend there is any modification (in the decree) because we believe that we have found the right point between combining the right to health and the prioritization of presence. They are epidemiological data that must be sustained, “said Trotta.

In statements to radio 10, argued that “they have to change the numbers for us to go back to school, but the numbers are clear“.

The official thus referred to the districts of the Metropolitan Area of ​​Buenos Aires that continue with epidemiological alarm because, according to him, they exceed 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. “The AMBA is around 700 cases. The City this week was in 1,100,” he justified.

For his part, Gollan took another attitude on the matter and was more optimistic when he envisioned possibilities that face-to-face classes would return in the event that the numbers drop. He asked to wait until Sunday when he maintained that “if we manage to get below 500 (cases), we can once again have presence, of course, always cared for “.

Gollán’s expectation of achieving an incidence of cases below 500 seems ambitious: it would require a 50% reduction in daily Covid cases on the Buenos Aires radio. That is, to report 6,000 new infections per day instead of the 9,000 that are reported daily.

Expressed in terms of the incidence of cases in the last 14 days, it would represent a drop from the current 738 cases per 100,000 inhabitants to the desired 500 referred to by the Minister.

“​Even what we have been seeing on Thursday and added the previous week, we are doing well. If we continue like this and the numbers give us, this is mathematical and we go to a more relaxed phase. We have three days to go, “he analyzed the steps to follow, based on the sustained decline in coronavirus infections that occurred in recent days.

And he added in statements to Radio With You: “We will know on sunday, but since we have come in the last 14 days, the numbers are good. “

Hours later, Trotta clarified that the final decision is made by the Province: “As soon as we have a window of opportunity in each of the jurisdictions, we are going to take advantage of it. But it is Governor (Axel) Kicillof who has to make the decision.”

In dialogue with TNHe repeated that the decision “has to be made by the Province according to the epidemiological sanitary variables.” And he added: “We come in dialogue with ministers and governors, we all want presence.”

Although he was not so blunt with the tightening of the measure, he did not confirm the return of face-to-face classes next Monday. “Nobody but this Minister of Education wants the boys to go back to class and we are working on that,” he clarified. And he mentioned a recent chat with his son: “He just wrote to me asking ‘Dad is going to have classes on Monday.’ we have to wait“.

“To return, you have to get off the (epidemiological) alert and return to high risk and that is being analyzed by each jurisdiction. It is an announcement that Kicillof will have to make, who is the one who makes the final decision,” he concluded.

Differences with City

In the midst of the differences and the crossfire with the Buenos Aires government in recent weeks, what was expressed by Gollan follows more the line of what was exposed by the City, which analyzes a full presence for the first years of high school.

In that case, the Buenos Aires government wants to go further and expand the instances of presence to first and second year students, who are now going to school, but with a mixed scheme (bimodality), which combines presence with virtuality.

Meanwhile, the presence is suspended in the Conurbano and a large part of the Province since the first half of April, when President Alberto Fernández announced the surprise suspension of classes and highlighted the decision to close schools to restrict the movement of people and thus prevent the number of infections from continuing to grow.

At that time, the Buenos Aires governor Axel Kicillof had warned sanctions for the schools in the Province that decided to open. The pronouncement was prior to the ruling of the Buenos Aires Justice that had ordered the City to guarantee face-to-face classes.


Gollan also referred to the DNU with the restrictions that expires this Friday and assured: “I do not think it will come out very different from what the bill was because it has a logic, what was intended was to give it more institutionality.” However, he insisted on waiting “how much closes the number that determines the phase”.

In this context, he explained that “it will happen to us that several municipalities can with those numbers can return to phase 4” and thus have commercial reopening, especially in the gastronomic sector and shopping malls.

“According to the traffic light indicators and the occupation of UTI, we are doing well. If we continue like this and the numbers give us, we will go to more relaxed phases,” he said. And he glimpsed that, in that case, they can “stretch the schedules, return to outdoor activities and some capacity inside” of bars and shops.



How much exercise should I do per week to lose weight

The benefits of practicing physical exercise they are the subject of permanent study. The frequency, duration, intensity and total number of hours devoted to sport are parameters and combinations that are investigated by scientists from all over the world and then translated into recommendations based on age, health status, possible pathologies and also medical conditions. Personal objectives.

One of the most common stimuli to start in the fitness universe is the need and desire to fight “those extra kilos”, a goal that sometimes seems unattainable and is frustrating.

It is that in many cases a vicious circle is generated: physical activity allows you to burn calories, but the effort made “forces” to eat more to compensate for the loss of energy and that increased appetite can lead to consuming the same calories that were burned during the training. The question then is:how much exercise should I do per week to lose weight?

The desire to lose weight must go hand in hand with perseverance so as not to lose the effort earned.

How much exercise should I do per week to lose weight

The physical exercise slimsIt just requires perseverance and a greater effort than normal. In addition to proper planning. It does not work to do gymnastics two weeks in a row and then give up, nor do miracle diets help.

One way to lose weight – lose accumulated fat – is to achieve what specialists call “negative energy balance”: reduce the calories you consume and increase those that are expended. Eat less – and healthier – and be more active.

Germán Laurora, coordinator of Megatlon and Fiter Training Programs explains that “a program with a focus on reducing adipose tissue, both for those who are overweight and obese, should ideally be daily. But it must also be taken into account that the effectiveness will drop markedly if the exercise is not complemented with an adequate diet “.

The coach gives us as an example two types of effective sessions to lose kilos, taking a “subjective” scale of effort that goes from 0 (no physical effort) to 10 (maximum effort).

To give a reference on the intensity and work that these two routines demand, Laurora chooses the walking / running activity as the pattern, although she explains that a training session has to include several functional exercises of movement and commitment of different muscle groups.

Training should include movement and engagement exercises for different muscle groups.

Training should include movement and engagement exercises for different muscle groups.

It also clarifies that it is important that the training program to reduce fat tissue contains both types of sessions, with daily exercise.

Session A: Medium intensity, continuous work and high volume (number of series and repetitions). Its duration should be 45 to 60 minutes.

In this type of session we would walk or run continuously for 50 or 60 minutes at an intensity of 4 or 5 points.

Session B: Training type HIT (“High Intensity Interval Training”), with a high intensity, interval work and low volume (less number of series and repetitions). Approximately 30 minutes.

We would warm up for 10 minutes of walking or running at a subjective perception of effort of 4 or 5 and then, as the core of the training session, we would run for a minute at an intensity of 8 or 9 and then walk very slowly at a intensity of 2 or 3. We would repeat this up and down for a total time of 20 minutes (10 runs at high intensity).
