The communities of owners can prohibit the tourist apartments in front of future owners

The communities of owners can prohibit the commercialization of vacation homes, although there is no unanimity on the matter, and affecting the decision to future owners. This has been established by the General Directorate of Legal Security and Public Faith when resolving an appeal by a community of neighbors against the qualification of a registry of the property of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Specifically, the registry had refused to register a new statutory rule, according to which "it is expressly prohibited, and for all purposes, the marketing of the properties in the property as vacation homes." And this because he understood that those who appeared in the Registry as owners had to give their consent to the modification of the statutes since the registry holders did not coincide with...

Bravas versus potatoes with things

It all started on Twitter, with one of those gastronomic debates that cheer up the networks like recurring herpes. The protagonists were the patatas bravas, and the swords spat sparks at the controversial border that separates the classic bravas from the potatoes with accessories. The “paella versus rice with things” debate of a lifetime in a different ring, with classicist fighters peeling their knuckles for the Madrid essence of the original and rebellious bravas wielding aliolis and potato deconstructions like butterfly knives. Let's say I am talking about ... I have many friends in Madrid who defend tooth and nail a correct use of the nomenclature "patatas bravas". The classic recipe that is used in the “brave” museums of the capital continues to be untouchable for them. It's almo...

SMEs will be able to hire 15,000 digital experts at the expense of EU aid

Strengthening SMEs, the backbone of the Spanish productive fabric, is one of the priority objectives of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan sent by the Government to Brussels. The document reveals that the Executive has reserved 5,000 million euros of European aid to digitize, internationalize and increase the size of small and medium-sized Spanish companies that, among other things, may use European funds to hire technology experts to update their models of business. "The weight of SMEs is greater in Spain than in the EU as a whole, with their contribution to employment and business gross added value being five percentage points above the respective European averages", justifies the Government in the Plan sent to the European Commission, in which it details that they are al...

The ‘cloud’, the technology that we knew from the pandemic and remained for innovation

And finally, after many years of hearing about the cloud computing, most of the Spanish companies started using cloud computing. It was with the declaration of the pandemic and the state of alarm, 13 months ago. The situation forced remote work, and with it, the use of cloud technologies became widespread, as companies almost immediately needed productivity, flexibility and security capabilities that practically no one could afford to own. There is no going back, and teleworking has become something of substance in digital and service companies. But at the same time the picture is different. The pandemic seems to be in the process of being solved, remote work is no longer the only option in most cases, and a good part of the Spanish business fabric does not think about survival, but a...

AI Is Not Actually an Existential Threat to Humanity, Scientists Say

We encounter artificial intelligence (AI) every day. AI describes computer systems that are able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence. When you search something on the internet, the top results you see are decided by AI.  Any recommendations you get from your favorite shopping or streaming websites will also be based on an AI algorithm. These algorithms use your browser history to find things you might be interested in.Because targeted recommendations are not particularly exciting, science fiction prefers to depict AI as super-intelligent robots that overthrow humanity. Some people believe this scenario could one day become reality. Notable figures, including the late Stephen Hawking, have expressed fear about how future AI could threaten humanity.To address this conc...

Scientists Think We Can 'Delay' The Aging Process, But How Far Can We Actually Go?

As we get older, many changes happen to our body, we become frail, our hair turns white, and our skin wrinkles. We also become more susceptible to disease and may lose our cognitive abilities.  Aging is generally considered an inevitable part of life, but can it be delayed, prolonging our youthful years? We asked 8 experts the question, 'Can aging be delayed?' Interestingly, there was a 75 percent 'likely' consensus. Here is what we found out.What is aging?All living things are made of cells. Scientists often grow cells in the lab to study them. In 1961, researcher Leonard Hayflick noticed that, on average, a human cell can only divide 50 times before it goes into a hibernation-like state called 'senescence'. It is thought that an accumulation of senescent cells in tissues of the body cou...
