This Monday, September 13, we highlight:

1.- Measures to make light cheaper

The Second Vice President and Minister of Labor and Social Economy, Yolanda Díaz, has confirmed that the Council of Ministers on Tuesday will adopt new measures to lower the price of electricity.

“The third vice president is working to implement new measures. The electricity bill has become the great problem of Spanish society (…) and is making it difficult for the recovery to be fair,” Díaz said in statements to TVE collected by Europa Press.

The minister has indicated that the price of electricity is “the big problem” for the self-employed and SMEs and that it is also a “huge problem” for large electro-intensive companies, which consume “a lot of energy.”

Díaz recalled that the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has committed to lower the electricity bill before the end of the year and he has not wanted to enter into the measures that the Council of Ministers will adopt on Tuesday, since it will be the third vice president, Teresa Ribera, who will detail them.

2.- More willing to get vaccinated

The main objective of the work, which has been evaluating the knowledge and perception of the population’s risk in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic since May 2020, has as its main objective to provide relevant and updated information that helps to cope with the epidemic.

Among the results, in addition to the new increase in confidence in vaccines, highlights a decreased concern about SARS-CoV-2, less search for information on the pandemic and a reduction in the indicators that measure so-called pandemic fatigue.

3.- Business creation achieves its best July since 2007

The number of new mercantile companies increased by 9.7% in July in relation to the same month of 2020, reaching a total of 8,379 new companies, the highest figure in a month of July since 2007, according to the data released this Friday by the National Institute of Statistics (INE).

The 17 autonomous communities, through their international development cooperation agencies, are going to buy vaccines against Covid-19, to send the message that without cooperation to vaccinate the whole world, the pandemic will not be overcome.

This was announced at a press conference in Mérida by the director of the Extremadura Agency for Development Cooperation (Aexcid), Jose Angel Calle, and the Basque Agency for Cooperation (AVC), Paul Ortega, in the presentation of the XIV Meeting of Autonomous Communities and Cooperation for Development, which will be held in the capital of Extremadura and in Cáceres from November 24 to 26.

As explained by Calle, the purchase of international vaccines will mean a “common gesture” of “decentralized” development cooperation, that is, that carried out through the autonomous communities, in such a way that each one will make its contribution based on its “economic and administrative capacities”, although it has advanced that the sum it will reach around 2 or 2.5 million euros.

5.- New technologies to achieve an early detection of cancer

Researchers from the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) have developed new technologies to achieve early detection of cancer and better treatment, such as devices to obtain more efficient mammograms, methods to obtain biopsies in real time, hydrogels to cultivate T lymphocytes and apply them in immunotherapy, and nanoparticles to attack cancer.

Through these innovative technologies, the CSIC seeks to bridge the gap between the laboratory and clinical practice. One of its star products is ‘Mummy’, a positron emission tomography (PET) device that substantially improves the accuracy of x-ray mammograms. In addition, it reduces both the scan time and the radiation dose patients receive. The device includes a stretcher to facilitate the positioning of the breast inside the PET ring, so that there is no breast compression and allows explorations close to the thoracic wall, being able to differentiate active foci in multifocal tumors.

‘Mummy’ it is not intended to unseat conventional mammography, but rather provide additional information to reduce the number of false negatives and false positives. In addition, it is a useful tool in monitoring therapy and in monitoring tumor development. It uses monolithic crystals as detectors, which reduces the cost of the equipment. In addition, improvements have been made (new detector ring; correction of image noise; compatibility with hospital information and image systems; improvement of the ergonomics of the stretcher) that have achieved that the device is already installed in 10 countries.

6.- Indemnified with 2.5 million

Last April, a video was released showing the brutal arrest in the United States of a 73-year-old woman suffering from dementia. The recording shows how, apparently, the woman had taken some flowers worth $ 12 from a Walmart store without paying for them. Now the state of Colorado will have to compensate her with three million dollars (about 2.5 million euros).

9.- Archaeological find

EuropaPress 3924655 engraving horse floor gallery cave cantabra garma belonging

Researchers have found in the Cantabrian cave of La Garma, in the municipality of Ribamontán al Monte, another trace of paleolithic footprints that are added to the infantile ones discovered a few months ago and more rock art samples in two interior galleries. The new footprints are from adults, they also date from about 16,500 years ago and are found on soft soil – mud – in the most remote part of the cavity.

And to the same period, the Middle Magdalenian, there belong non-figurative paintings -points- made with the fingers in red on stalactites, and an engraving of a horse on the ground, unique in Spain, made with a sharp object a few meters from the human footprints, following a typical technique of that Upper Paleolithic culture.

Older, still to be dated, are the fossilized remains of an animal found in this same cave, in the town of Omoño. They belong to a bear -possibly from the caves- and of which a footprint has also been found, on which a later one appears superimposed, of a human, who could put his foot on it out of curiosity or as part of a game.

10.- Accessible universe

An international team of researchers has generated the Largest and most realistic simulation of the Universe to date and has made it available to everyone for free in the cloud.

Uchuu (which means “outer space” in Japanese) consists of 2.1 trillion particles in an unprecedented computational cube of 9.63 billion light years on a side.

By comparison, that’s about three-quarters of the distance between Earth and the most distant observed galaxies. Uchuu will allow us to study the evolution of the Universe at a level of both size and detail inconceivable until now.

Uchuu focuses on large-scale structure of the Universe: Mysterious dark matter halos that control not only the formation of galaxies, but also the fate of the entire Universe. The scale of these structures varies from the largest galaxy clusters to the smallest galaxies. The individual stars and planets are not resolved.
