Discovered in the Basque Country: 7,500 previously 'missing' jobless

The Basque Government has detected 7,500 more people than previous thought who were registered unemployed in the autonomous community's previous job placement service, Langai.

The Basque Vice-councilor for Employment, Javier Ruiz, and the Director General of the current employment service Lanbide, Javier Ramos, revealed the finding during a press conference given on Wednesday.

Following the clearance of lists passed from the former to the current service, the Employment Department, directed by Gemma Zabaleta, discovered that not all the unemployed people signed up to Langai, which operated between 1996 and 2010, had been passed on to the (national unemployment service) INEM.

Specifically, a total of 7,500 people who were on the list of jobless at Langai did not feature on INEM's list, despite the former agency allegedly sending them frequent updates.

With this additional data, the number of people in the Basque Country registered as unemployed goes up from 145,456 to 152,956, the equivalent in percentage of a rise from 10.89% to 11.4%.

The tourism students prepared a day trip to visit the cost of the Northern Ireland, we visited The Giant’s causeway. A specialised guide explained us everything about the incredible columns and THE LEGEND OF FIONN MAC COOL.




The second place we visited was the Carrick-a-Rede Bridge, it was a rope suspension bridge, and we passed it. Cinthya was very brave, she suffers from vertigo but she passed the bridge. Good girl!!!!!




At night we prepared a party in one of the rooms, all peers were invited, the Norwegians came and we were playing cards till…
These are our Norwegian friends


Next day everybody left the hotel very early but we exchanged our emails and shared in face book. We keep in touch!!! We came back to Dublin and the Basque Country.

COMENIUS:GOEM: BELFAST: 2nd day of the meeting

We woke up very early as always and went to School. The second day task was to work in the Phrasebook we have already started in Zubiri. The groups were mixed and we had to complete the booklet. The topics were different for each group: For instance: Directions, weather, greetings, working interview… We had to write common phases in different languages. Later on, each group made the cover of the booklet and decided which one was the best. Congratulation to Xabi, the cover Xabi's group made was the best. The next task was to perform the sentences but in our partner's language. Would you like to listen to our partners speaking in Basque?

In the afternoon we went to pirate mini golf it was designed with special effects at the course including firing cannons, spitting totem poles... . It was amazing.

COMENIUS:GOEM: BELFAST : 1st day of the meeting



All partners went to Belfast Boys Model School. The school is huge, new and the classrooms are enormous. Three times our classrooms, the facilities they have you can’t imaging.



We worked in groups. Different countries were mixed to take part in a competition. We had to build a sculpture or a famous building. For example: one group had to build a Eiffel tower, another group La Sagrada familia, another group a Viking ship, London Eye… It was fun, because we had the opportunity to talk to our partners



In the afternoon we went to play bowling. We laughed a lot. We played in team, the students’ team against teacher's team; of course, the students were better.

The euríbor overcomes 2 % in his daily price

After registering in March his major raise in two years, the euríbor has put on today in April exceeding in his daily rate 2 % (2,013 %), a level that was not touching from March, 2009

The indicator closed last month in 1,924 %, his highest level of last 25 months, from February, 2009, with what it will increase in price in an average of 600 Euros per year a mortgage.Nevertheless, the impact of a raise of the euríbor is proportionally bigger for the mortgages than longer term. And, obviously, it is also major major all is the quantity of the lending.

The euríbor has ranged, in his more than ten years of history, between the historical monthly maximum of 5,393 % that reached in July, 2008 and the minimum of 1,215-year ago-old %, in March, 2010, but till now it had never duplicated the average type of interest that the ECB reminds for the zone of the Euro.

Next Thursday the ECB will approve, almost with complete certainty, a raise of interest rates of a quarter of percentage point, which, according to the consulted experts, the euríbor will push up to 2,25 % or 2,60 % at the end of year, according to the opinion of the analysts. If there are fulfilled these forecasts, who have to check his mortgage in the next months they will see as the increase in the quotas it is going to be every time a major similar pass the time.
