On the Internet television platform (OTT), dedicated to making more than thirty sports...

Pitfalls in the EREs of BBVA and CaixaBank: Pensions, widowhood, orphanhood, disability and impairment

CaixaBank and BBVA's employment regulation files are reaching their final stretch. Next Friday, June 4, the official negotiation period ends in the case of the bank chaired by Carlos Torres, while in the case of the old savings bank, the date is June 10.

These same sources are convinced that in the case of BBVA an extension of the negotiations of at least one week will be achieved, while in CaixaBank the extension could be extended until the last week of the month, if at th...

The risks of ‘revolving’ cards: keys to avoid 30% interest

There are only a few weeks left until summer, a time when expenses skyrocket for the holidays. This year, the summer period coincides with a relaxation of the strong restrictions on mobility and social interaction imposed by the pandemic and a return to an almost old normality, which will be accompanied by an increase in consumption. Credit cards are the great ally of consumers and more in a crisis situation, in which "they can serve to alleviate the lack of money of many family units, especially if access to credit is hardened", points out Antonio Gallardo, financial expert in iAhorro. However, consumer associations warn of the risks of these debts and especially those contracted with the so-called cards revolving. What is the difference between a credit card and a 'revolving'?

Trip to the nervous system of the Wanda Metropolitano

René Abril joined Atlético de Madrid out of sheer rebellion. He thought that someone should be contrary to his friends, those who filled the streets with Madrid's jerseys on teenage soccer afternoons. The same rebellion with which he completed, in 1999, the demanding career of technical engineer in telecommunications at the Polytechnic University of Madrid.

In 2016, April became the first CTO of his Atleti with the mission of designing the technological structure of the new Wanda Metropolitano.

Honor and flowers for Capablanca

A couple of weeks ago, under a terrifying heat, the grave of the great Cuban chess player José Raúl Capablanca woke up full of flowers in the Colón cemetery in Havana. His is a singular grave, in which instead of an angel or a cross a majestic white marble king guards the remains of the former world chess champion (1921-1927), the only Spanish-speaking monarch in the history of the discipline. One hundred years ago, on April 20, 1921, Capablanca defeated then-champion Emmanuel Lasker, a brilliant German player who for years delayed the confrontation with the Cuban challenger knowing what was coming.

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.
