As the question demonstrates, the actual definitions used are unclear, and there could be many possible answers. Chapter 3 of the Nordregio's 2004 report for the European Commission, Mountain Areas in Europe: Analysis of mountain areas in EU member states, acceding and other European countries provides a number of different measures, most of which Spain is ...

It's fake. Until the last couple of lines, the script matches almost exactly the Snopes disproven internet joke: The Obstinate Lighthouse. That includes number of degrees, direction of suggested change, number of support ships, etc. According to Snopes it's been bouncing around the internet since 1996, but was published in various books of jokes before that....

Thanks to Taladris' comment, the data source for Knoema's number is found on another page: The 2019 Revision of World Population Prospects is the twenty-sixth round of official United Nations population estimates and projections that have been prepared by the Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations ...

The ice rink is called Palacio de Hielo (“Palace of Ice”) and Spanish language newspaper El Mundo has multiple articles from April (article 1, article 2) which include photos of the inside with caskets lined up: Alamy has another photo of the rink from higher up, which seems to have been taken after they stopped housing caskets there (though what looks to ...

The raw data are available from the Spain MOMO site at the "Datos" tab. The link labeled "aquí" here will give you a CSV file of deaths per date, either National or by region, starting 2018-12-31. If I have done the calculations correctly, the current total for all-cause deaths in 2020 is 465,535. I suggest the original question is based ...

Yes, but that's not the main goal In this article in De Standaard, the main reason given by the lawyers is that they want the judge to admit that the conviction of Puigdemont and co was for a political crime: ‘Politieke misdrijven vallen niet onder het strafrecht. Door te verklaren dat het hier niet om een politiek misdrijf gaat, is de rechter ...

Not only YES, but Super Yes The public worker, named Joaquín García, has "not been working" for 14 years for the public administration in Cadiz. His job was a quiet one, as his department ( public infraestructure and services) is an overexpanded one with too many engineering supervisors to notice ( words of his direct boss). Given that, every morning since ...

The claim used to be true in a restricted sense and maybe forcing a bit the rules. In light of the list of countries by average elevation from Wikipedia, Spain had the second largest mean elevation in Europe assuming that: We disregard Andorra for being too small (and that's the worst stretching of the rule in this question), dismiss it as a country until ...

The exact version of the claim in question is: Preguntémonos si es lógico que el esfuerzo humano de los celadores y celadoras sea menos recompensado que el de la casta médica After reports by rmedica.se, and huffgingtonpost.se and redaccionmedica.com, it can be said to be notable now. Many members have also posted the exact version of the claim on ...

Source: OECD.Stat: In fact, at 1,691 hours per annum in 2015, Spain is slightly below the median of 1,749 and mean of 1,756. Spain does not have longer working hours in comparison with other OECD countries Long hours reduces birth rates Lack of correlation is ...

(Partial answer: I'm leaving the third claim out for now. That one leaves the most to interpretation so I'm not sure this part is even answerable) Before we get started: 1) there are lots of images 2) Getting data from 1940 is hard and I couldn't get what I wanted for all the different claims. As such, I had to limit the period chosen to more recent years ...

Disclaimer: This is difficult to actually prove without performing rather intrusive research into the lives of Spanish couples. For part 1: No, they don't work longer hours (source). They do, however, finish work later which supports part of the claim your source makes: Experts say long working hours and a culture of eating late at night and going to bed ...

The first match from that sentence seems to be from a Podemos reddit channel tittled "¿Qué pregunta para el cambio en Andalucía le harías a Teresa Rodríguez?" (trans. "What question to achieve the change in Andalusia would you make to Teresa Rodríguez?") where a commenter says on 03/10/2015 the following: pablo iglesias hace un comentario en twitter hace ...
