    Ignoring a warning from the government of Catalonia, a Spanish cardinal on Sunday led a funeral Mass for the victims of the COVID-19 coronavirus, hours after threatening to take “legal action” against civil authorities for the “arbitrariness” with which the right of religious freedom and worship is being treated. Up until Friday, the archdiocese hoped the government of Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region would raise the 10-person cap for religious events that was announced July 17 after a second wave of cases hit the region. This announcement came after the invitations for the funeral Mass had already been sent. However, Cardinal...
  • Coronavirus traces found in March 2019 sewage sample, Spanish study shows

    MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish virologists have found traces of the novel coronavirus in a sample of Barcelona waste water collected in March 2019, nine months before the COVID-19 disease was identified in China, the University of Barcelona said on Friday. The discovery of virus genome presence so early in Spain, if confirmed, would imply the disease may have appeared much earlier than the scientific community thought. The University of Barcelona team, who had been testing waste water since mid-April this year to identify potential new outbreaks, decided to also run tests on older samples. They first found the virus was...

    MADRID - The FBI and the Spanish police arrested a “lone wolf” radical Islamist suspect on Friday who was believed to be planning to carry out terrorist attacks in Barcelona. The Moroccan man, who was not named, was detained in the Mediterranean city in a dawn raid by armed police after a surveillance operation. The Spanish Civil Guard, who also worked on the operation with Moroccan intelligence officers, said the man had become a “profoundly radicalized” Islamic State follower who was looking for targets during Spain's strict coronavirus lockdown.

    As the novel coronavirus rapidly spread worldwide and concern continues to grow, a number of international sporting events have been impacted, including several professional running events. One of the first major events to see a shift in schedule was the Tokyo Marathon at the beginning of March; the marathon was only held for the elites, and the non-elite runners were given entry to the 2021 race. With the global crisis becoming more dire, race organizers have proactively started to reschedule or altogether cancel races set to take place in the next few weeks, due to the uncertainty of the virus’s...
  • Meet Blat: The Barcelona dog that can detect lung cancer from sniffing a person’s breath

    Every dog owner will tell you that their four-legged friend is brimming with special qualities. But in the case of this labrador-cross, it wouldn’t be empty boast. For Blat is a pioneering dog with a powerful nose. He is one of just a handful of canines in the world – and the only one in Spain – that has been trained to detect lung cancer. And he can do so from just a whiff of the breath of someone suspected of having the disease. According to a study published in the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, Blat had a success...

    The protests on Saturday were calm and respectable but as the day progressed things began to disintegrate as police officers began using force against the Yellow Vest protesters near the Montmartre district. Protesters gathered near Madeleine Church, as well as near the Louvre Museum and Sacre-Coeur Basilica and later in the evening tried blocking traffic on the Champs Elysées. Riot police surrounded them in an attempt to disrupt the demonstrators. Today’s demonstration yielded more than 100 being detained, according to the Paris Police Prefecture. There were an estimated 23,800 protesters throughout the country, not bad for the Saturday before Christmas,...

    Ice New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called on protesters rallying under the “Abolish ICE” banner to occupy border crossings, airports and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices across the country. Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during an interview on Monday with Democracy Now's Amy Goodman, speaking alongside Barcelona Mayor Ada Colau. Asked by Goodman about her decision to leave New York to join protests at the U.S.-Mexico border just days before the primary in which she defeated Democratic Representative Joseph Crowley in a stunning upset, Ocasio-Cortez said, "There is no convenient time" to "stand up against human rights violations."...

    Barcelona-based YouTuber faces up to two years in prison over a video in which he fed Oreos filled with toothpaste to a homeless man and joked that it would help him with a long-overdue clean. Kanghua Ren - known as ReSet to his more than a million subscribers - filmed himself filling the biscuits with toothpaste and replacing them in their packaging before feeding five of them to the homeless man in January last year. As the 52-year-old man - named by authorities as Gheorge L. - ate the cookies, ReSet jibed: “Maybe I’ve gone a bit far, but look...
  • Katy Perry Under Fire for Using Spanish Flag in Barcelona Gig Promo

    The Local ^ | 2 March 2018
    The singer Katy Perry has unwittingly waded into Catalonia’s independence row with the announcement of her one and only concert in Spain this summer. Using a post on Instagram to create some hype ahead of sales of the gig she wrote: "Trust and believe I'm coming for you too Barcelona. See you June 28." But the announcement was accompanied by her image with a backdrop of the colours of Spain's national flag and the shield that appears on it. Although technically correct – Barcelona, is after all, still a part of Spain - it immediately provoked a backlash among those...

    Apple wowed the world with its iPhone X. Now it's Samsung's turn. The South Korean electronics giant on Sunday will unveil its latest phone, the Galaxy S9, at its Unpacked event at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. Samsung's invitation for the launch featured the number nine -- for the name of the device -- as well as the teaser, "The Camera. Reimagined." The Galaxy S series is Samsung's most important product line. If you own an Android phone, the odds are pretty high that it bears a Samsung logo. Last year, about one out of every...

    Euro Media ^ | 12/24/2017 | Lionel Messi
    The parallels to the political situation are beautiful, regardless of whether Catalonians are exactly the culture we love. Messi - small and humble, always smiling or concentrating, at one with life. Ronaldo - always whiny, petulant, feminine-metrosexual, narcissistic, rigid. If I ever have kids, may they be like Messi and not Ronaldo. Barcelona won this morning 3 - 0. Sweet!

    April 17, 2012. Barcelona, Spain. Many Americans are shocked to find out that a foreign corporation from Spain is contracted to produce, manage and tabulate US elections. The company also recently purchased a US tech start-up to acquire an even larger presence in America. With that acquisition three months ago came the privilege and responsibility of facilitating American elections in 900 municipalities and 26 states. Electronic voting is here, and it’s not American. Check the included list to see if your state is one of them. Cities and states that currently use Spain-based Scytl's SOE Software for electronic voting. Image...

  • Franklin Graham: ‘Politicians Should Stop Saying Islam Is a Religion of Peace’

    breitbart ^ | THOMAS D. WILLIAMS
    Celebrated evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has urged politicians and other world leaders to stop insisting that Islam is a religion of peace, when the exact opposite is true. In the wake of this week’s deadly attacks by jihadists in Barcelona, Rev. Graham—the son of Billy Graham—tweeted that politicians should stop saying “Islam is a religion of peace”: In other words, the religious ideology behind Islam itself, rather that the extremism of a given group such as the Islamic State, is often what leads to the violence and terrorism carried out against infidels by Muslims. In his politically incorrect text, Graham...

    The choice of Barcelona as a target for terrorists came as little surprise to security experts in Spain and elsewhere in Europe because of Catalonia’s links to jihadists and Salafism, a radical form of Islam. Catalonia has been the main hub of jihadist recruitment in Spain for more than a decade and radical Islamists consider it to be occupied land that should be part of a future Islamic caliphate. The region is home to approximately 510,000 Muslims, more than a quarter of the total number in Spain, according to a demographic study by the Union of Islamic Communities of Spain....

    European leaders can see that a demographic disaster is taking place. They know that in two or three decades, Europe will be ruled by Islam. They try to anesthetize non-Muslim populations with dreams about an idyllic future that will never exist. They say that Europe will have to learn to live with terrorism, that there is nothing anyone can do about it. But there is a lot they can do; they just do not want to -- it might cost them Muslim votes. Winston Churchill told Neville Chamberlain, "You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor,...
