What happened to mixed mortgages?

Neither fixed nor variable. Or rather, both, but at different times. In this way, the operation of the mixed mortgage could be summarized, an option that is currently barely chosen by one in 10 or 20 users, according to data from the sector. Relegated to the background by the particularly attractive cost of fixed-rate loans, in turn pushed down by variable rates that are on the ground, the mixed mortgage has lost some of its appeal, despite that some entities try to return it to you. A mixed mortgage loan is, in reality, a credit for which, during a first period, the monthly payment with which the user returns it is made up of a part of the capital plus a fixed interest.

Broad beans with sausage

It is bean season, and those of us who enjoy peeling them more than with a session of mindfulness and ASMR together we celebrate it by exercising everything it gives. Every time someone says "oh, fresh beans, how tasty but how lazy" we become resigned and offer to peel them "if no one else wants to do it" so that later they applaud us for it and also not have to put the dishwasher (we are weird, but not stupid). We are already one step closer to eating this platazo. The culinary expertise required by this recipe is almost nil, but you have to do another - yes, another - manual work, separating the small ones from the large ones. If all the beans we have are more or less the same size, it will not be necessary to cook them in two stages; If they are all small, we can let the liquid cho...

What has happened to the 26,000 bank branches that have disappeared since 2008

To be the director of a bank branch was to be the king of the mambo. The real estate bubble that developed between 2001 and 2008 caused savings banks, banks and foreign entities to open branches in every corner of Spain. The bursting of the bubble ended up taking with it a myriad of entities and initiating the decline of the branch. The director of the office ceased to be king. Now, With the pandemic and the acceleration of digitization in access to banking services, the trail of closures has been reactivated. From 2008 to the end of 2021, more than 26,000 branches will have disappeared, in many cases leaving a wound in the urban tissue that is difficult to heal. The maximum number of bank branches was reached in 2008, with 46,221 branches. At that time, the small savings bank of the ...

Electoral milestones of the PP in the Community of Madrid

8 pictures Madrilenians will go to vote in the elections of this 4-M after 26 years of PP governments in the Community of Madrid. Alberto Ruiz Galardón, who won for the first time in 1995, was succeeded by Esperanza Aguirre, who came to the presidency after the repetition of the elections in October 2003 for the 'tamayazo' (the betrayal of the socialist deputies Eduardo Tamayo and María Teresa Sáez).

The strange story of the sirloin with whiskey

In Seville there is a tapas known as whiskey sirloin that can also be prepared with brandy. This contradictory dish, which began to be made in the Andalusian capital in the sixties, has become over time one of the most representative tapas of Sevillian gastronomy. Today there is no traditional bar in the city that does not serve this meat on a memory foam mattress of French fries and some bread - never enough - for dipping. “Just as there are many people who measure the level of the bar with the salad, there are those who value it with other classics such as the sirloin with whiskey. They are typical tapas, which you know you can order in almost any place ”, he says. Txema Marin, founder of the blog Urban explorers and member of the Andalusian Academy of Gastronomy.
