Antonio Tomás Espín: "Where will our children and young people go to work?"

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

The spokesman of Somos Region raises "What regional project exists to employ those more than 100,000 unemployed who continues to register the Region ?, What strategic measures are being adopted?".

"It is necessary to reach, among all the political forces, a great real pact, with real and assumable objectives to make tourism the true economic engine of the Region".

For Antonio Tomás, "the new port of El Gorguel, linked to the Mediterranean freight corridor, would be a before and after in the generation of wealth and employment in this region."

Last year 2018 the Region of Murcia ended with just over 100,000 unemployed, of which, and according to the data of the Survey of Active Population, the most vulnerable groups are women, who account for 54%, those under 25 years (21%) and those over 45 (34%).

The almost one and a half million inhabitants of the Region of Murcia represent 3.18% of the national population.

However, there are sectors, such as the service sector, whose employed account for only 2.7% of the national population.

For the spokesperson of Somos Región, Antonio Tomás Espín, "the problem that arises in the future is not trivial: what regional project exists to employ those 100,000 unemployed? What strategic measures are being adopted to generate employment? Another way: How will our children and young people work? In agriculture, when it is a sector practically stagnant in terms of employment and with a serious threat to the future allocation of water for irrigation? In the agri-food industry, intimately linked to agriculture and, therefore, with a limited margin of growth? In trade, increasingly controlled by large areas and multinational e-commerce?

To answer these questions and improve employability rates, "from Somos Region we think that we must take a series of fundamental decisions that will mark the future of the Region for the coming years, decisions that must be taken from here, from the Region , focused, among others, on two strategic sectors: tourism and industry ".

The spokesman for Somos Region notes that "it is necessary that the entire political arch defend TOURISM as a true economic engine, and at present, this sector is generating low-quality employment, with low salaries and a temporality of around 34%. There is a wide margin for growth, and the objective should be quality tourism that increases profitability, as in the case of congress tourism, but this requires expanding hotel beds, improving and modernizing employee training, betting through transport infrastructures, increase the visibility of the Region, both nationally and internationally, and achieve adaptation to the new vision of tourism for today's travelers, therefore, it is necessary to reach a government agreement between all political forces, but not that kind of pacts to which we are sadly accustomed and which do not cease to be wet paper, but a real pact, so that in the long term

or the objectives are common and assumable in their development ".

In relation to the INDUSTRY, it is necessary to promote the so-called industrial employment and establish effective and efficient policies for the insertion of the most vulnerable groups (women,

young people and those over 45).

"In this sector there is a key infrastructure for the Region that seems to have been forgotten in a drawer of the Ministry for years: the new port of EL GORGUEL in Cartagena, an action that must be linked intimately with the MEDITERRANEAN FREIGHT CORRIDOR, which, By the way, for practical purposes ends in Monforte according to the current planning, because from Monforte down all types of traffic coexist in the same way, which is not feasible if we look at the lack of competitiveness that would imply to the goods. With this new port, its corresponding ZAL in Los Camachos and, above all, the MANUFACTURING ASSEMBLY INDUSTRY that it would bring with it, there would be a before and an after for the Region due to the tremendous generation of wealth and employment that it would entail. of Spain declares it as a Strategic Project of National Interest, being this a fundamental step for its definitive impulse, after guaranteeing all the procedures

environmental ".

In the Region of Murcia, although it has been in force for 37 years, it has been shown that neither with nor with others has it been possible to achieve the adequate production model that generates sufficient employment and quality.

"Precisely the origin of Autonomy was to be able to manage and make decisions from here, from the Region, and not from other parts of Spain, or pay homage to the headquarters of the different national parties, whether they are in Madrid or Barcelona. that it is necessary, today more than ever, to return to that autonomous origin and put it into practice ".

The PSOE denounces the situation of the CAVIs and Points of Special Attention of the Region because the Community does not transfer the state subsidy to the municipalities

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

The deputy secretary general of the PSRM-PSOE and responsible for Economy, Gender Equality and Public Policies, Gloria Alarcón, considers inadmissible that the attention to victims of gender violence be used politically and calls for an urgent resolution

The deputy secretary general of the PSRM-PSOE and responsible for Economy, Gender Equality and Public Policies, Gloria Alarcón, has denounced the situation of the Specialized Care Centers for Women Victims of Violence (CAVI) of the Region in the absence of economic resources.

Alarcón has affirmed that the Community is not renewing the subsidies within the established deadlines, which is causing the dismissal of the professionals who attend these centers.

"The situation that is taking place is inadmissible because there is a waiting list of women to be served and professionals are dismissed that are necessary and to be hired again they have to wait for the grant to be granted again." The bureaucracy can not be a impediment to the proper functioning of public services, and less in these cases. "

The same is happening with the Points of Specialized Attention (PAES).

The deputy secretary general has assured that the municipalities have been waiting since January for the subsidy to hire professionals, but it does not arrive.

In the Region of Murcia there is a network formed by 15 CAVI and 6 Specialized Service Points, aimed at the comprehensive care of victims of gender violence.

Gloria Alarcón has called on the regional government not to "use a politically sensitive issue, because there is no reason not to send subsidies to municipalities." The Ministry has the money, coming from the State, and we do not understand why it does not sign the decree for unlock the theme. "


The Community and the Red Cross will give training to the host families

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

They will be taught strategies to create links with the children they have received

The Autonomous Community presented today, together with the Red Cross, the program 'Family, by right' that is framed in the project of Foster Care, financed with more than 47,000 euros corresponding to the 'X Solidaria' of the regional IRPF, and which will give positive parenting training for host families.

The Minister of Family and Equal Opportunities, Violante Tomás, recalled that throughout this year the Community funds 28 social projects focused on children for an amount of 605,500 euros, which has benefited 16,000 children thanks to the solidarity of taxpayers .

He explained that the program 'Family, by right' consists of "giving specific training to the welcoming families to help create that bond with the children so necessary so that there is a good environment, normalized and of mutual affection".

"It's about preparing welcoming families to take care of them and give them positive parenting skills."

This program will also give impetus to the dissemination and awareness of potential host families and support to those who decide to become one.

In this way, the Red Cross will collaborate with the General Directorate of Family and Social Policies, offering individualized and group psychological and educational care to the host families, as well as promoting meeting activities among them.

During the past year, the association assisted 584 children and young people who are integrated into 486 welcoming families.

Host programs for minors

The Community currently has 1,212 children under its care or guardianship, of whom 627 are in permanent care, most of them with other members of their family, and 23 in foster care.

So far this year, 105 more families have attended the informative talks made by the Child Protection Service as a previous and essential step to formalize the request, and another session is scheduled for next month due to the demand.

The Community also has several programs such as the Family Foster Care of Emergency and Diagnosis, known as 'Kangaroo' program, which currently manages the temporary reception of 13 children up to six years.

Another of the programs is the Temporary Foster Care, Acofamt, as an alternative to the internment of children and adolescents between 6 and 18 years old.

Thus, there are 10 children under these circumstances waiting to decide other more stable protection measures such as permanent placement.

In addition, 13 children benefit from the program 'Family Holidays', which gives children between 6 and 15 years of age the possibility of having a 'family friend' with whom to spend weekends and holidays.

From the Ministry of Family and Equal Opportunities are carried out other measures to protect children such as the Family Meeting Points of Cartagena and Murcia that serve a total of 70 families.

These points are a specialized service that guarantees the right of children to see their father or mother when the relationship is interrupted or difficult to develop.

This meeting is done in a neutral and friendly environment for the child so that it is a visit as normalized as possible.

Mother's Day: why Spanish women no longer want to be mothers

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Almost 30% of women under 40 do not want to get in the car of motherhood

Those who want to be increasingly delay the moment.

And up to 2.5 million of those that are already have not had more children because of the precariousness

Although the number of abortions fell with the entry into force of the law of terms, the figures of the IPF indicate that these have increased again

This Sunday is celebrated Mother's Day, a date that, given the Spanish birth rate, may not be spending its best moments.

Acierto has taken the opportunity to analyze in what situation are women who want to be mothers in our country and also the reasons why many others have decided not to get on the car of motherhood.

Thus, among other conclusions, the research confirms what we already knew: that there are many Spanish women who no longer want to be mothers – almost 30% of women under 40 do not want to get on the maternity car – and that, who are, every time they have their children later.

In particular, we have the highest rate in the EU of first-time mothers who are over 35 years old.

The worst of the case is that up to 42% say they had their son up to five years later than he would have liked.

The curious fact is that the social stigma is disappearing – very slowly but it is doing so.

That is, among the youngest interviewees it is no longer "badly seen" to say no to motherhood.

In fact, up to 70% of respondents consider that it is reasonable given the economic and employment situation in our country.

Regarding those Spanish women who are already mothers, up to 7 out of 10 would have another child if their situation allowed it.

And here comes into play the economy but also the difficulty of reconciling work and family life.

Such are the difficulties, that almost half have been forced to reduce their journey.

To make matters worse, Spanish women who are mothers are among the European women who have the most problems working, along with Greek women and Italians.

Likewise, although the number of abortions fell with the entry into force of the law of terms, the figures of the IPF indicate that these have increased again.

Almost 90% of women who aborted last year did so at their own request, while only 6% did so because their life or health was in danger.

The rest alleged other reasons.

In addition, 30% of those who voluntarily interrupted their pregnancy lived as a couple.

A few percentages that, again, could have a lot to do with the difficulties of being a mother in Spain.

Delivery, better by private

As for those who become pregnant, the research reveals that almost 40% of Spanish women prefer private insurance to manage their pregnancy, follow up and undergo diagnostic tests.

Among the reasons that lead them to do so, the majority opts for them because of the confidence in the high skills of the doctors who will attend them.

Another reason has to do with the possibility of enjoying a single room in which to have more privacy and rest.

Just over 30% refers to the flexibility of this type of service and the ease that this entails when it comes to matching appointments and reviews with their work activity.

And 47% hire these policies to access more consultations and ultrasound than those included in Social Security.

However, as Carlos Brüggemann, co-founder of Acierto, comments, "it is always advisable to review the grace period that applies to pregnancy if we do not yet have health insurance, that is, the time that has to pass from when an insurance is taken out. that you can use it for cases like this. "

Typically, this period varies between 8 and 10 months depending on the insurer, although some do at least cover the monitoring and monitoring of pregnancy (not so delivery and hospital admission).

Likewise, there are variables that can cancel the deficiency, such as an urgent situation that endangers the patient's life or, if a premature delivery occurs.

The neighborhood pharmacy reinvents itself on the Internet

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Internet came to revolutionize society and reinvent it

Businesses like the typical neighborhood pharmacies have also had to get on the car to not be left behind.

And, if before it was normal that the pharmacy on the corner of the house were only the nearest neighbors and those who needed to purchase a health product just as they passed through the door, now with the Internet that has changed.

Who said that a neighborhood pharmacy can not sell its products in a large capital?

Or compete with pharmacies in the neighboring town?

Internet has made such a traditional business model expand and make neighborhood pharmacies can get customers in other cities.

In the era of new technologies, whoever manages their online business better is the one who benefits the most.

In Spain, unlike in other countries, there is a Royal Decree that regulates distance selling to the public through websites of medicines for human consumption not subject to medical pre-registration.

Hence, the neighborhood pharmacy can only offer online those parapharmacy products that have always been needed at some time, such as gels, shampoos, baby care items, sun creams, cosmetics, vitamin supplements, etc.

Physical store vs e-commerce

However, the so-called digital revolution does not mean that physical stores cease to exist.

The future is to maintain the coexistence of both, because they feed each other.

For example, pharmacies such as Vistafarma keep the essence of their small establishment alive, knowing that neighbors and their regular customers will continue to rely on them to purchase their health or beauty products.

However, this does not mean that this city trade should stop its expansion there.

A few years ago, those responsible for this pharmacy decided to bet on their website.

In this way, your customers could be informed both online and in the physical store of their opening hours, customer service phones and the products they sell and their prices.

All are advantages because even living next to the establishment, you can know before leaving home the price of the product you need to buy.

Besides that, one of the great advantages is that although the neighborhood pharmacy closes, for example, at eight or nine in the afternoon, the e-commerce remains open and available 24 hours a day.

What if you need to buy, for example, special baby bottles for your baby and you can not move to the pharmacy?

Well the orders by Internet and in a couple of days at the most, and depending on the area where it is ordered, the order is conveniently received from home.

But to 'reinvent' the Internet and, in addition, to be successful, not only is it necessary to have a web page, but these traditional establishments have had to rely on professionals from disciplines other than the healthcare branch.

In fact, the success of a web page lies mainly in its design, in a good web positioning in the main search engines, because otherwise very few will find the page, and in a communication policy of both the products that are marketed and other aspects that may interest users, hence many also have blogs that give advice on food or address current issues.

What do neighborhood pharmacies sell on the Internet?

Due to this type of changes, the day to day of the neighborhood pharmacies has changed a little.

And is that the usual work of the physical pharmacy is also joined by the online pharmacy.

In Vistafarma, for example, what they do is work all the professionals in the same space, which generates a lot of activity.

Each day, apart from attending to the patients of the pharmacy, they receive many orders that they share for the two companies, prepare the packages and attend to the clients of the web.

Many people wonder if the products that sell online pharmacies like this are the same as those in the physical store.

The answer is that they can sell on the Internet sanitary articles and medicines that do not need a prescription.

In that sense, e-commerce is divided into the sections cosmetics, health, hygiene, dietetics, babies and mothers and optics.

In fact, they can be purchased from moisturizing products for the skin or for facial cleansing, passing through cough products, pregnancy tests, multivitamin complexes, shampoos and special gels for body and hair care, fat burning products, baby food Babies up to sunglasses.

Undoubtedly, many users agree that the incursion of neighborhood pharmacies in the digital world has been an advance, to be able to resort to them from anywhere at any time of the day.

Harvesting of extra early melon varieties in the Region begins

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Variety improvement, crop management and weather conditions allow farmers to compete in international markets with fruit out of season

The Region has 5,576 hectares of melon, with a total production of 227,768 tons

The collection of extra early melon varieties has already begun in the Region.

French varieties such as Cantaloup, Galia or HoneyDew, among others, occupy more than 1,000 regional hectares.

Within this variety stands out the Charentais type, with an area of ​​183 hectares, which starts at a month and a half before the traditional varieties.

The bulk of the melon harvest campaign is concentrated between the months of June and July, although in greenhouse cultivation it can start in May.

The Minister of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Miguel Angel del Amor, visited today a production and harvesting company Charentais melon in Torre Pacheco and stressed that "the development of these extra early crops is due to the emergence of new varieties that they have been obtained through genetic improvement programs of this species ".

Along with the production of this variety, it also highlights the cultivation of other early extra stone fruits such as peaches, nectarines and table grapes.

"This allows highlighting the innovative processes that place the Region as the technological garden," said Del Del Amor.

The Region has 5,576 hectares devoted to the melon plantation, 41 located in greenhouses and the rest in the open air.

"Last year, a total production of 227,768 tons of melon was obtained, while the predominant variety was the Toad Skin type, with 3,167 hectares and 126,126 tons, respectively, and the Cantaloup, Galia and Amarillo type. .
