Snchez announces for May 2 outings for individual sports and family walks

The Prime Minister, Pedro Snchez, has anticipated the possibility of further relaxing the confinement measures starting next week, specifically, from May 2. The new relief will give citizens the opportunity to go out for sports individually and family walks. It will be the Ministry of Health that decides definitively the activation of this measure and the conditions that should be met.

This measure depends on the fact that throughout the week it is verified that the departure of the children, which can be carried out from the same morning, does not entail any spike in infections. In this sense, Snchez has asked extreme “caution” and “responsibility” to parents so that they strictly comply with the regulations that the Ministry of Health has imposed.

The president explained that the de-escalation is expected to begin once the current extension of the state of alarm ends, that is, from May 10.

This stage of de-escalation will be “gradual” and “asymmetrical”, or what is the same, depending on the territories. And also be “coordinated”, that is, “with the same rules” although the speed is different.

Snchez has also announced that next Tuesday he will bring the de-escalation plan to the Council of Ministers and present it himself to all citizens, despite the fact that he said “we still have hard times” because “victory is not yet close” . The technical requirements of the plan, which will be extended throughout the month of May, will be finalized on Monday after listening tomorrow to the regional presidents.

“The maximum will be one: we enter this pandemic together and we will leave together. The de-escalation has to be in a team, asymmetrically, yes, but coordinated,” he warned. “We all have to go hand in hand, leaning on the shoulder, elbow to elbow.”

Snchez has insisted that “some of us are the insurance of others” so there is no need to make this new stage “a race in which if someone falls, they drag the rest.” And as he has been repeating in recent days, he has called for unity.

In an attempt to anticipate the “centralization” reproaches leveled at him from various autonomous regions, mainly Catalua and Pas Vasco, the president has denied the most and has insisted that the government’s mission is to “pilot”, “coordinate” and direct the “scorecard” to reinforce the capacities of the health system, primary care, the number of ICU beds, epidemiological surveillance, the execution of PCR, the identification of infections and collective protection measures.

Most of the Autonomous Communities have already prepared their own plans for lack of confidence, but the president has warned them that coordination and gradualness will be in the hands of the Government, which will decide based on technical and health parameters and not according to a calendar of pre-established dates. The philosophy is “not to jeopardize what was previously achieved”.

In relation to the debate that is taking place within the EU to arbitrate a multimillion-dollar aid package to face the economic consequences of the pandemic, Snchez has flatly rejected that they could lead to conditions.

Interview with Andrs Iniesta: “Money doesn’t matter; we all have the same fears”

Confined to Kobe, he premieres a documentary about his life on RAKUTEN TV. Before, talk to EL MUNDO about everything but football.

RAKUTEN TV

On the other side of the phone,Andrs Iniestasounds like always. Or not. Not really. It actually sounds like a parent. He does not speak like a soccer star, one of the largest, perhaps the largest, who still is, in Spain. The voice, timbra, of the footballer, is no longer. Today is a deep voice, of father and husband. Along the path of this mutation, the automatic responses, so typical of the youth of the ball, have also disappeared. The man who scored the goal of an entire country pauses before beginning all answers and speaks slowly. It almost takes time to transcribe it in real time. They are 35 years old, four children and dark tunnels that throughout his life have taught him, he says, many things.

For example, that the impressive apartment on the 25th floor of a building on Rokko Island, an artificial island of Kobe, today its city, is useless if one is “empty inside”. This is stated in a documentary that Rakuten TV will premiere next week exclusively and for free. Before that, Andrs talks to EL MUNDO from one of the rooms in his home whileAnnaand the children (Valeria, Paolo Andrea, Sienaand the baby,Romeo) await you for dinner. As a reminder: Iniesta plays for the Japanese Vissel Kobe, but soccer is a supporting actor hereafter. Not there.

What is confinement like these days in Japan?
At first, with all the precautions, we can live a normal life. In fact, we were training. But since the beginning of April we are all at home. There were two cases of coronavirus in the team, one from a staff member and one fromSakai, a partner, so they sent us all home, also because the League has been delayed, for now, until June. The confinement is not as hard as in Spain, we can go for a walk, with many precautions, and the restaurants, although not all or all the time, are open. It’s getting tougher in Tokyo.
What do yours tell about what happens in Spain?
That they are at home, without leaving, that when they leave they do it one by one, well, the measures that are being taken and a little with the uncertainty that everyone is experiencing. I also follow the news and really live it with anguish and concern about being away.
Why a documentary right now?
The idea has been around for a long time. It was a bit of a book[La jugada de mi vida, publicado en 2016], it’s like it’s the next step. The idea has always been around my mind, and the opportunity occurred. After taking the step of coming here to Japan, of leaving Barcelona, ​​after all the tour, I felt like doing something like that.
The documentary starts with images of him as a family. He could have chosen a professional moment, which has many. Why the family? What is the family for Andrs Iniesta?
It is the base that supports everything. You go out to work and play, but every day you come back from training, from playing, you have won or lost, you have done a good or bad training, you are good or you are bad, you come home. And at home you meet the most important people you have. They are the starting point of everything, they are above anything else in life.
What does Anna, your wife, represent to you?
He is the most important person that I have come across in life, with whom I share everything, my sorrows, my joys, his … We share the treasures of our lives. Anna appeared at a key moment in my life, I have always said it. We are two people with similar values, very strong, we understand each other quite well, and we have grown together as people. It is an honor to be with her. Happiness is hard to find and she makes me happy.
He is seen, in the images, walking with the family, the children on the scooters, they sit in the middle of a square and nobody tells them anything. Is that image real?
It’s real yes, also because Japanese culture is like that, very respectful. You can be with your family sitting on a bench, and have some people 10 meters away, and they do not come to tell you anything until you get up or you gesture to them to come. It is to be thankful.

“I am a person that I like to take care of”

I will tell you three names:Ral Martnez[fisioterapeuta de la seleccin espaola en el Mundial 2010],Emili Ricart [ex fisioterapeuta del Bara, hoy con Andrs en Kobe] andHugo waiter[UtillerooftheSpanishteaminthe2010WorldCuppaintedtheshirtintributeto[utillerodelaseleccinespaolaenelMundial2010pintlacamisetaenhomenajeaDani JarqueAndrs showed after scoring the goal in the final].
With two of them I have a relationship that transcends professionalism, such as Ral and Emili. They have long ceased to be only people in my professional field. And Hugo is an exceptional person, with whom we share difficult and happy moments, and whom I remember with great affection. It was an important link in that shirt.
Especially Ral and Emili, are they like a crutch that has helped you walk in your worst days?
Yes, without a doubt. I am a person who likes to take care of, give value to the people who take care of me, who love me, who care about me. These people are those kinds of people. So, in my life they are as important as anyone else.
Are you aware that you had an enemy?
Enemy is a very strong word, I would say no. Let me think … No, definitely not.
Well, someone with whom I did not end well.
Yes, yes, of course. Within that in the professional world, in that of the teams, we all respect each other and we have that regard for colleagues, obviously there are people with whom I have not empathized or who at a certain moment have realized that you do not want them close of t in any case.

“Barcelona? I missed certain things”

There is a phrase in the documentary, referring to his departure from Barcelona, ​​that attracts attention: In relationships, if you do not speak things, there comes a time when you have no turning back. What does it mean?
I think it is very clear, don’t you think?
Yes, but just in case.
In the context of my departure from the Bara, I think the phrase is very explicit, very real. It is often said that you value things when you have lost them. Well, the important thing is to give value to things when you have them, and that this is reciprocal. But hey, those things happen, and they do it for various reasons. Not because one is better than the other, because one party is to blame or not.
Did you miss some affection from the club?
In my heart, I missed certain things, and in that phrase we are talking about a lot is said. Regardless of that, the decision I made was the one I felt I had to make.
Pep Guardiola calls him a bullfighter and Luis Enrique, Harry Potter. Which of the two do you like best?
Man, they are different things, but both have that part of art, of magic, of saying things with what you do. I’ll take two. They are two of the most important people in my career and I heard them say that’s the hell.
Is it true that the goal of Stamford Bridge changed your life so much? He was already champion of the Champions, champion of Europe …
It was one of the turning points of my life, but it is true that perhaps more externally, more meditatively, of consideration, to see that it was you who had that moment of taking that important step for your club . And that adds up to the recognition of people. It had been years, yes, but that goal gave me a boost.

“Money and fame are useless”

You have been through personal difficulties throughout your life. What use is money, fame, when you put yourself in such difficult situations?
Money and fame are useless, but … you know what happens? That it is difficult for someone who does not have all those things that I have, to understand that I say that money and fame are useless. But it is true that, even if you have everything in the world, if you are empty inside … People, no matter the money, we have the same feelings, the same fears, the same joy … And there we are all cut by the same pattern. Everything else is accessories. Obviously, those of us who have the privileges have to know how to take advantage of them, and be grateful to have them, but the drink he spent was spent as a person, he did not have a better or worse time because he had more or less money.
Growing up away from family has negative aspects, but also positive ones. Or not?
Yes, like everything, it has its good side and its bad side. The fact of separating from my family at 12 years old and the toll that I have paid has been brutal on a mental level, in the negative sense, but on the contrary it has made me mature by force, it has made me have goals and objectives to try to achieve as It was … That has been my life, although obviously, it was all worth it.
What is your contact with the real world? The family? Friends? Newscasts? How do you know about things like unemployment, wages, what things cost …?
It is what I tell you. I live a normal life, with my circumstances, but my relationship with the real world is total, because I try to stay up to date. You have family and friends who are having difficulties like any other person and from my place, I try to help and contribute my grain of sand to people or places that are vulnerable. You also become aware, you realize, of the privileges you have, which I have in this case. As we are seeing with this virus, the solidarity of the people is what in the end will mark everything.

Luis Sepúlveda, the scribe of the Mapuches

On the prodigious fantasy of ‘An old man who read love novels’, the novel that broke his seams


Luis Sepúlveda, in 2004.
JAVI MARTINEZ

The one Luis Sepúlveda wanted to look like was his great-uncle Ignacio Kallfukurá, to tell Mapuche children at sunset and by the river stories where foxes, pumas, condors and ‘wigña’, the wild cat, spoke.

Luis Sepúlveda was also considered a raccoon, which means People of the Earth. And in Araucanía, Wallmapu, the country of the Earth People locatedStory of a dog named Lea‘(Tusquets) in 2016. By then he was the age of his great-uncle when he listened to him fantasize.

Sepulvedahe always smiled and never stopped talking. Neither in the long aftermath, about 20 years ago, of a meal in a restaurant by the Madrid square of Callao, which was approaching at dinner time while continuing and continuing to tell anecdotes. The group ended up approaching diners from other tables attracted by his grace and a waiter who stood up to follow those adventures without end. The last time I saw him at the Barajas airport; going to or coming from Lisbon. The same smile, the same teeth.

Listening or saying Sepúlveda is equivalent toAn old man who read love novels(Tusquets, 1993), the novel that broke her seams and that has made so many happy. Luis Sepúlveda had something of Antonio José Bolívar Proaño, the man who, after the death of his wife, Dolores Encarnación del Santísimo Sacramento Estupiñán Otavalo, went into the jungle, to the country of the Shuar, the Indians whom some call jíbaros who“they hunted tapirs, gummies, capybaras, saínos, monkeys, birds, and reptiles.”With them “he learned to use the blowgun, silent and effective in hunting, and the spear in front of the fast fish.”

He was one of them without being one. Antonio José Bolívar Proaño listened astonished how the Shuar (“friendly as a herd of monkeys, talkative as the drunk parrots and loud as the devils”) intonedaments, nasal poems that described the joy of pleasure and maintained the habit of only staying three years in one place, taking with them their huts and the white bones of their ancestors. Even more so when colonists arrived promising a new happiness based on whiskey in exchange for land so that the cattle and the wood business would expand beyond any border. With them, the gold diggers. Thus, mixing reality and fantasy, the splendid pages ofAn old...

It was in El Dorado, a town of about a hundred houses by the river, with a police station, church and school, where Antonio José Bolívar Proaño approached after several days of canoeingonce 40 years in the jungle. After reading the 50 books that the teacher had, she discovered that she only liked one,The rosaryby Florence Barclay. “The characters suffered and mixed happiness with suffering in such a beautiful way that the magnifying glass was clouded with tears.”

The old man read aloud, slowly and repeated the phrases he liked until they stole their meaning. He read day and day until the books were exhausted. Twice a year, El Idilio, the town where he lived, brought those misadventures to Dr. Rubicundo Loachamín, a dentist who dragged a portable barber chair. The toothpick adjusted the price of the dentures after having euthanized the patient and insulted him in the middle of the job: “Sit down and show that you have the eggs well put”.A montubio was allowed to remove the entire denture for a bet: one gold nugget per piece, healthy or eaten. Antonio José Bolívar Proaño only used his own to eat and sleep, the rest of the day he kept it wrapped in a handkerchief.

Inthat jungle of boas and parrots, parrots and saínos, of long rainy seasons and of machete in handThe old man who read love novels had to go inside to recover the body of a man killed by a triguillo, a bold feline with refined intelligence that everyone was suspicious of. “If tracing is too easy and makes you feel confident, it means the triguillo is looking at the back of your neck.” Alone and among the thicket that tabby animal and the old man face each other at the end of a priceless novel for any day of the year, for any moment.

Miguel Silvestre, pedaling around the world to the family fruit vendor: “The neighborhood business was somewhat reviled”

Professionals without applause

Monday,

2020

It made cycling the best vehicle for solidarity, leading sick or disabled people to impossible corners of the planet. Now it’s time to lend a hand to his parents and to his usual neighbors: We take the fruit and whatever it takes

Miguel Silvestre, in the family fruit bowl in the El Viso neighborhood.
EM

Miguel Silvestre should have just arrived to get around trails in South Africa. And, in no time, preparing for the desert dunes of Merzouga. He flirted in his day with professional cycling, but chose to be a solidarity professional or, as he defines himself, an achiever of impossible dreams on wheels. Now life has brought him back to his origins, to his apron, to his usual neighbors. Now the adventure is in the neighborhood.

When everything threatened to rush, when in early March the coronavirus spread silently across Spain like an oil slick, Miguel had already unmade the suitcases of the Cape Epic, one of the most famous mountain bike races in the world. Like so many other times, he was enlisted for a good cause. This time, with the Stroke Brake Foundation. As on another occasion I conquered the Annapurnas in Nepal, in an unforgettable expedition with women who overcame a cancer. Or from Madrid to Lisbon, 770 kilometers non-stop, guiding a team of kids with intellectual disabilities. Or together with Alex Roca to heroically complete the Titan Desert in Morocco a year ago …. But the nuclear this time was just around the corner. Specifically in the family fruit bowl.

Half a century ago, his father and uncle, from the town like many others, started Sylvester Brothers, an establishment that has been there since 1936. In the Madrid neighborhood of El Viso, on Calle Felipe Campos 11, it became an essential that resisted the passage of time, the challenge of large stores. All that loyalty from the neighbors is what Silvestre now wants to return, in addition, of course, to ensure the health of her parents, Ana and Miguel, already close to 70, whom I put at home so as not to go out again.

They are from the old school, they wanted to continue working. It freaks me out that many of those who have struggled to build all this, those who lifted it all up and got us going, are now dying. And they are doing it alone, and without being able to say goodbye, he relates, after reviewing the dantesque scenes that he has to live daily, of old men in solitude, of dramas behind each door. Unfortunately, I have to work as a fruit bowl, but also as a psychologist, he admits.

Now, Miguel, along with his brother Javier and the two longtime employees (Carlos and Jos), changed the jersey for the apron. The watts on the bike for the early risers to Mercamadrid, to collect the product. Provisioning points around the corner with the van, from house to house, distributing orders. Day of more than 15 hours. Because the consumption of fruit, despite the problems that are now looming due to the lack of labor for the collection, has not stopped rising. According to last week’s public Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, up to 18.5% more than a year ago for the same dates. Although it is not easy for everyone to make the purchase. He receives an average of 150 calls a day.

The children call us to supply the parents, because they do not know who to go to. And if you also need fish, meat or detergent, because it comes, he confesses with the emotion of the one who helps. People do not want to leave home, and that is what they should do, so we cannot cope with home delivery. We are being very strict about sanitary measures, and we don’t want people to come. Telephone attention and delivery in each house, to reduce risks, he details.

Payments, trying to avoid the cash, even leaving the note for later, when normality returns. We have a responsibility not to infect anyone, so better. This is not about making money.

Wild in Ethiopia
Silvestre, in Ethiopia.

And that Miguel did not have among his multiple concerns the fruit bowl where he ran around as a child. Soon the bicycle marked his destination, although he never left his studies (Law) or dreams. Madrid cycling promise, early winner of the Tour of Salamanca (2005)Among other milestones of youth, he was somewhat disappointed by the professionalism that tempted him. He expanded his sights with his exquisite bike shop in Madrid, Retrocycle, a place of worship for fans. And he ventured into a thousand adventures, always with the help of others as a banner. Sports director of the Pilgrim Race -the MTB race that connects Madrid with Santiago-, for a few months now he has even his own production company, Sporty Telling, to tell stories that deserve to be told. Like that of Pedales for Africa, that of an NGO with which he traveled 200 kilometers to Tigray (Ethiopia) along with Thin Parakeet and other athletes to bring medicine and sports to children with disabilities.

With his intrinsic optimism, Miguel still glimpses a gap between so much grayness. It is true that it is also an opportunity. Now is the time to start these small businesses. To give personalized attention. To deal directly with customers, to trust us again, to be able to reach everywhere, he argues. The neighborhood business was something reviled, something that people did not stop to think about. And, now, and with respect for everyone, we have become the ones that allow people to have basic food. You have to value words like neighborhood, grocer or neighbors.

Bernard Gonzalez, a doctor at the Stade de Reims, committed suicide on Sunday after becoming ill with Covid-19, as confirmed by the mayor of the French city, Arnaud Robinet. The 60-year-old doctor was confined to his home with his wife, also infected. According to reportsLe Parisien, citing sources from the Marne Department Prefecture, Gonzalez left a letter “explaining the link between his actions and his contagion.”

Gonzalez, who worked for 23 years at the historic French club, cared for the last few weeks to the sick in Reims, according to the newspaper.L’Equipe. Likewise, defender Yunis Abdelhamid revealed that the staff had not had direct contact with him since the beginning of the detention, except for the messages that they exchanged through the physiotherapist Laurent Bessire.

The Stade de Reims, finalist of the European Cup in 1956 and 1959, expressed its condolences after learning the tragic news. “He was a man of science and letters, of an inexhaustible curiosity. He was a man of paper, of ink, who showed off a crossed out writing, but a neat verb”, underlined the statement of the team, fifth place in Ligue 1 after 28 days.

Mourning on the shield

“He was a great professional, recognized and appreciated by all,” said the Mayor of Reims. “My thoughts are with his parents, with his wife, with his family. He was a committed and very human man,” added Robinet.

The club, which has dyed the usual red of its shield black, multiplied the signs of pain for its employee. “He was our doctor, our doctor, our ‘Narb’ and being with the Stade forever,” he concluded.
