On 11 February of this year, Google has announced that it is making Malaga the headquarters of its Cybersecurity Center of Excellence. With a global scope, this will convert the southern Spanish city into one of the most important cybersecurity hubs in Europe.

Not one to pass up a fortuitous holiday after the unforgivably lackluster Christmas season, the Spaniards geared up for frolic in the snow when Filomena stormed in. But when the pristine snow iced over and the fun was over, they're back to the old normal of the unrelenting COVID-19 and the elusive vaccines -- the much-touted light at the end of the tunnel -- that another Filomena could well snuff out if only because they're awfully scarce.
