Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

The Murcian author will dialogue tomorrow with the readers about his career and his latest play, 'Háblame'

The Regional Library of Murcia, a space managed by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, hosts tomorrow, May 9 (7:30 pm), a new literary meeting with the Murcian playwright Fulgencio Martínez Lax, framed in the cycle 'Fresh Ink'.

Accompanied by the journalist Patricio Peñalver, Martínez Lax will share with the audience details of his work as a theater author and, in particular, of his work 'Háblame'.

The cycle 'Fresh ink' of the Regional Library has as main objective the promotion of the authors of the Region of Murcia who have recently published through dynamic meetings with readers.

'Háblame' is starring a family consisting of a widowed mother (Isabel), a lonely and rebellious son (Javier) and a grandmother (Adela) who begins to give symptoms of confusion and forgetfulness.

Immersed in an incipient dementia, the grandmother clings to the memories of her youth, which causes characters of the past to appear like her husband, her brother or her parents.

All will travel through his memory showing a special generosity and tenderness that will serve as an anchor for his grandson to clear the ghosts and demons that generate violent acts in him.

In the middle of them all is Isabel, who struggles from bewilderment, from fatigue, but also from love to care for her mother and rescue her son from the situation in which he finds himself.

The author

Business Intelligence for food companies, developed in Murcia

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019

The first BI tool for linear analysis of any food product has been developed in our region

A group of Murcian entrepreneurs, concerned about access to market information that can be handled by food companies, has developed the first tool that analyzes the linear of any product and democratizes access to information.

After more than two years of research, a small group of Murcian entrepreneurs has managed to apply Business Intelligence systems to the analysis of the lines of all the food categories that can be found in a supermarket.

Until now, most Business Intelligence tools deal with internal company data to provide managers with control panels to monitor their situation, BIAI App is the first that collects external data and converts them into organized information to give an knowledge to the entrepreneur of the situation of his market.

With this BIAI Market Analytics tool, it democratizes access to market information since it allows small and medium-sized companies to have information about their market similar to that of large industries, since their cost is very accessible to any organization .

BIAI App offers information on all manufacturers, brands, formats, varieties, flavors, novelties, etc.

of any category of food that is found in the lines of the large distribution.

The versatility of the tool allows for studies of both the national market and any country that a company is exporting or want to export, thus helping to prepare an assortment adapted to the preferences of each country.

Knowing the composition of a linear, knowing the different positioning of competitors and all the characteristics that surround a category will help the manager or entrepreneur to prepare their business visits, to detect business opportunities, the development of new products and ultimately the decision making.

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture, in collaboration with Two Art Gallery, organizes the exhibition of neo-baroque sculpture 'Barro, wood and blood', which today, at 20:00 hours, opens its doors in the San Juan de Dios Monumental Complex of Murcia.

More than 40 works by 23 creators are exhibited until mid-July in two venues, since San Juan de Dios also joins the Murcia gallery itself.

The Minister of Tourism and Culture, Miriam Guardiola, today presented the exhibition curated by Jesus Abades with the director of Two Art Gallery, Eva Hernández, and highlighted "the good health enjoyed by contemporary imagery in our country thanks to young creators that, based on tradition, open new paths through research and the evolution of forms, technique and sometimes also materials ".

A total of 23 artists, most of them born since the 80s, are those that the public of the Region will have the opportunity to discover thanks to this project, said Guardiola;

"a unique project on religious sculpture that has the peculiarity of focusing on new generations of artists, which proposes a new look towards works usually linked to the religious world and brotherhood and in which several unpublished pieces are exhibited, some created specifically for this exhibition "

The selected creators are some of the most important representatives of the new neo-baroque sculpture, thanks to whom the religious image has managed to evolve and cross the borders marked by the strict aesthetic parameters of the tradition.

Artists concerned with naturalism and realism who turn away from unnecessary decorative elements and whose objective is to move the viewer.

The vast majority of them are Andalusians, although there are also several from Alicante and the sculptor from Murcia Alberto Marín López (Totana, 1998), the youngest creator, disciple of Hernández Navarro, whose works can be seen in the gallery.

Thus, added the head of Culture, "the Region of Murcia is represented within this young neo-baroque artistic current that, from the respect but with the aim of looking for new artistic languages ​​and new roads, drink of great masters of the seventeenth century and XVIII as, of course, Francisco Salzillo. "

Crucified, captive, Nazarene, painful, immaculate and children of passion.

The works that can be seen both in San Juan de Dios and in the Murcia gallery are a representative sample of the work done by these image makers during the last decade, and several of the pieces are unpublished.

Some have even been created for this project, such as the crucified Bolivian-born Edwin González Solís Córdoba (Cochabamba, Bolivia, 1983) and Antonio Reiné (Cádiz, 1987) or the two sculptures that represent Jesus Nazareno and signed by Antonio Luis Troya (Seville, 1986) and Ismael Delgado (Seville, 1988).

'Mud, wood and blood' can be visited until July 14 at the San Juan de Dios Monumental Complex, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.;

The CHS receives 55 offers for the drafting of the pre-projects of the dams of Nogalte, Béjar and La Torrecilla

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

The contract is expected to be resolved by mid-June

With these infrastructures it would be possible to greatly reduce the risk of flooding in the Lorca field when torrential rains occur

The Segura Hydrographic Confederation (CHS), an organization attached to the Ministry for the Ecological Transition, has received 55 offers from 19 different bidding companies that have submitted to draft the pre-projects of the dams of Nogalte, Béjar and La Torrecilla.

After consulting the documentation received, five of these offers have been excluded from the process due to not meeting the requirements contemplated in the Law. Once all the bids presented are studied, it is expected that the contract will be resolved by mid-June.

These three infrastructures would be of great importance to reduce the risk of flooding when torrential rains occur in the area.

The contracts published in March in the Platform for Contracting of the Public Sector have the purpose of drafting the Preliminary Drafts of the dams of Nogalte, Béjar and La Torrecilla, as well as the drafting of the corresponding Environmental Impact Studies, so that they can serve the CHS to carry out the processing of the procedure of Environmental Impact Assessment in each case, as well as the process of public information of the lands affected by the construction and exploitation of said dams.

Characteristics of the dams

In the absence of concreteness of the final solution adopted in the corresponding preliminary construction projects, in accordance with previous technical studies already carried out the main technical characteristics of the dams, are estimated as follows:

Dam of Béjar

The dam would be located in the basin of the Rambla de Béjar, located north of Puerto Lumbreras, whose surface is framed mostly in the municipality of Lorca, in Murcia, and minority in those of Puerto Lumbreras, in Murcia, and Vélez Rubio, in Almería.

The basin of the ravine of Béjar, with an area of ​​83.66 square kilometers (km2), pours into the Guadalentín on its right bank, through an extensive flood zone with no defined channel that finally is concentrated in the Rambla de Biznaga.

In the area where topographic and geological options are located to locate the dam, the peak flow of the ravine for the return period of 50 years is 318 cubic meters per second (m3 / s).

In that area, at elevation 512 (Maximum Normal Level) the volume of the reservoir is almost 10 cubic hectometres (hm3).

The project avenue level (NAP), for an avenue of 1,000 years of return period, is 515.38 meters, with a reservoir volume of 13.3 hm3.

Dam of La Torrecilla

In the Rambla de Torrecilla, various alternatives have been studied to mitigate the damage caused by the avenues downstream of the N-340 road, where frequent floods affect the farmland on the left bank of the Guadalentín River.

In particular, the basin of the Rambla de la Torrecilla is of fluvio-torrential nature of the semi-arid Mediterranean regime, formed by land considered semi-impermeable.

This basin covers an area of ​​15.58 km2 and is located on the southeast slope of the Sierra de la Torrecilla.

From the analysis of possible closed for the location of the dam, considering the location of the closed that intercepts the entire basin, the hydraulic calculations show a peak flow for the return period of 50 years of 117.30 m3 / s and 147.50 m3 / s for 100 years of return period, and with a reservoir capacity of 1.19 hm3 corresponding to the NMN (424.30 m) and 1.53 hm3 corresponding to the NAP (426.80 meters).

Nogalte Dam

The Nogalte dam would be located in the ravine of Nogalte, which runs through the municipal districts of Lorca and Puerto Lumbreras (Murcia), upstream of the urban core of Puerto Lumbreras, thus assuming the main measure of defense against avenues of said population .

The watershed of the ravine Nogalte is located between the provinces of Almeria and Murcia.

The extension of the basin collected in each one of the closed ones studied varies according to the location, being the total surface collected at the height of Puerto Lumbreras of 124 km2.

Depending on the final solution to be adopted, and taking into account the possible solid contribution in avenues, the volume of the 100-year avenue hydrograph of the return period is around 6 hm3 with a peak flow rate of 531 m3 / s , assuming a necessary reservoir capacity of 13 to 15 hm3, with an NMN elevation of 674 to 712 meters.

In all of them for the sizing of the volume of reservoir and the circulating flows it is necessary to take into account not only the volume of water that is mobilized, like runoff, in the episodes of rain, but also the volume of solids (muds) that are transported and they would end up in the reservoirs.
