El granito del talud NE presenta una estructura geológica relativamente bien definida una esquistosidad de flujo casi N-S de tendencia subvertical -buzamientos de 85º a 90º y sentidos de buzamiento de 110º a 290º- y zonas de cizalla de diferentes tamaños, con rellenos de brechas y cataclasitas asociadas a ellas, de espesores de centímetros a un metro. Hay tres sistemas de fallas, de dimensiones hectométricas a kilométricas. El más patente y numeroso es el F1, de dirección N-S y buzamiento subvertical; son fallas de gran longitud con espaciados entre ellas bastante reducidos: 20-60 m, que presentan normalmente relleno de granito cataclástico. Existe, además, un segundo sistema (F2) de dirección NNE y también subvertical, con espaciados mayores que el anterior, y un tercer sistema (F3) con rumbo subparalelo al del talud y con buzamientos de 20º a 30º hacia la mina; este último sistema, que es menos visible, presenta rellenos de brechas y cataclasitas. Las fracturas menores, juntas, definen sistemas que coinciden con la esquistosidad, las cizallas o las fallas citadas, si bien se observa una mayor variabilidad en sus orientaciones, y existen también sistemas secundarios de fracturas que tienen diferentes rumbos y buzamientos según la zona de que se trate.

The granite of the NE talus presents a relatively well-defined geological structure and a flux schisosisty running almost N-S and subvertically, dips of 85º to 90º and dip directions of 110º to 290º, and areas of shear of different sizes, with backfills of breccias and cataclasites associated with them and with a thickness between some several centimetres and a metre. There are three fault systems, with sizes measured in hectometres and kilometric dimensions. The clearest and largest is F1, which runs in a N-S direction and has subvertical dips; these are faults of considerable longitude and with quite reduced spacing between them (20-60m), which are normally backfilled with cataclastic granite. There is in addition a second system (F2) which runs in a NNE direction and is also subvertical and with greater spacing than the aforementioned system. There is also a third system (F3), which has a subparallel course to that of the talus and with dips from 20º to 30º towards the mine; this final system, which is less visible, displays backfills of breccias and cataclasites. The lesser fractures together define systems which coincide with the aforementioned schistosisity, shears or faults, although a greater variability in its orientations can be observed, and there are also secondary fracture systems which have different directions and dips according to the area in question.

O corazón de Lugo, o antigo Lucus Augusti, está rodeado por unha muralla romana de máis de dous quilómetros de circundo. Quen coñeza as fermosas murallas medievais que se conservan en moitas cidades europeas, ficará abraiado pola enormidade deste monumento único. Porque esta impresionante fortaleza urbana, xa unha das máis grandes de Hispania no seu tempo, é hoxe a única que conserva íntegro o seu perímetro nos tres continentes polos que se estendeu o territorio do Imperio Romano. Por esta razón, o 30 de novembro do ano 2000 a UNESCO tomou o acordo de inscribir a muralla de Lugo na lista de monumentos declarados PATRIMONIO DA HUMANIDADE. Mais non é este o único testemuño importante da presenza romana en Lugo. Os restos das termas romanas, os fundamentos da Ponte Vella, e moi especialmente o templo tardorromano de Bóveda a 14 quilómetros da cidade, son elementos senlleiros que tradicionalmente mereceron a atención do viaxeiro curioso. E nas últimas décadas as escavacións arqueolóxicas sistemáticas descubriron outros moitos restos de grande interese que hoxe se poden contemplar en varias fiestras arqueolóxicas ó aire libre, ou en pequenos museos que exhiben in situ os achados máis importantes: a domus señorial chamada Casa dos Mosaicos, unhas tumbas e unha fonte cultual no Centro Arqueolóxico de San Roque, un templo de Mitra excepcionalmente ben conservado e anexo a outra casa que chamamos Domus do Mitreo... Para entender a muralla e o pasado romano de Lugo, o viaxeiro dispón do Centro de Interpretación da Muralla situado na Praza do Campo, onde tamén se pode facer cun extenso folleto especial no que se explica a muralla e os outros monumentos e restos arqueolóxicos daquela época. Pero Lugo é moito máis aínda.

The heart of Lugo, the ancient Lucus Augusti, is surrounded by a Roman wall that is more than two kilometres in circumference. Whoever visits the beautiful medieval walls that are preserved in many European cities will be amazed by the enormity of this unique monument. This impressive urban fortress, one of the largest in the Hispania of its time, is today the only one whose perimeter is completely preserved in the three continents throughout which the territory of the Roman Empire extended. For this reason, on 30th November, 2000, UNESCO took the decision to register Lugo’s wall within the list of monuments declared WORLD HERITAGE SITES. But this is not the only important evidence of the Roman presence in Lugo. The remains of the Roman baths, the foundations of Ponte Vella (Old Bridge), and especially the late-Roman temple of Bóveda, located 14 kilometres from the city, are simple features which traditionally merited the attention of the curious traveller. In recent decades, continuous archaeological excavations have revealed many other remains of great interest which today can be viewed through various open air archaeological viewing points, or in small museums which exhibit the most important finds in situ: the noble domus known as the Mosaics House, some tombs and a cultic fountain in the St. Roque Archaeological Centre, and an exceptionally well-preserved temple of Mithra that is attached to another house, which in Lugo we call the Domus do Mitreo (the Mithraeum Domus). In order to understand the wall and Lugo’s Roman past, the traveller can visit the Wall Interpretation Centre located in Praza do Campo (Market Square), where they can also obtain a special and extensive booklet in which the wall and other monuments and archaeological remains from that time are explained. But there is even more to Lugo than this.

Este local es, además, el primero de Reino Unido donde se puede encontrar nuestra cerveza 1906 en formato barril. Además, nuestra cerveza Estrella Galicia es la única que se vende en esta conocida sala de conciertos con capacidad para 1.000 personas.
En el centro de Manchester hemos incluido decoración personalizada de Estrella Galicia en las terrazas del hotel Double Tree by Hilton. Esta incorporación refuerza nuestro posicionamiento Premium en el mercado inglés y nos da una mayor visibilidad.
Uno de los mayores distribuidores de UK, A&A Wines, distribuidor de UK, visitó nuestra fábrica con dos de nuestros clientes en Londes, Jamón Jamón y Donde. Y un año más, Little Galicia llegó a Londres para difundir los valores asociados a nuestra marca Galicia fuera de sus fronteras. Cada martes, desde el 26 de julio, y hasta el 6 de septiembre, se celebró en restaurante de Omar Hallibhoy en Shoreditch la III edición del evento en el que los asistentes pudieron degustar nuestras cervezas Estrella Galicia, Estrella Galicia 0,0, 1906 Reserva Especial y 1906 Black Coupage. Little Galicia tuvo seis semanas de duración en las que fusionó la gastronomía gallega con el maridaje de nuestras cervezas. Como novedad, este año hubo una temática diferente cada semana, haciendo que no hubiera dos semanas iguales. Todo esto se completó con una amplia variedad de grupos que se encargaron de amenizar las jornadas. Música en directo de SON Estrella Galicia como protagonista y banda sonora durante la degustación de un menú elaborado para los asistentes.

FIVE KEY POINTS ON SERGEY KOVALEV VS. ANDRE WARD
The undefeated Russian, Sergey Kovalev (30-0-1 with 26 KOs), who holds the WBO-IBF Light Heavyweight Title Championship and WBA Super Championship, will defend his three belts this Saturday against the also undefeated and former twice king of the Super Middleweights, Andre Ward. The bout will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and for Kovalev it will not just be any other fight.
"Krusher" is up against someone who is perhaps the most complicated rival of all those he has already faced and this will be a true clash of styles: the Russian´s destructive power against the American´s technical skill. Ward is a swift, elusive opponent who skillfully manages his technical resources. Faced with such a challenge, Kovalev must take into account the following key points if he wishes his reign to continue.
RAMP UP THE PACE EARLY ON
This fight has no unforeseen mysteries. Kovalev has his power and Ward will resort to his own power in order to avoid it. In that scenario, at the beginning Ward will wait to adapt his script to the Russian´s strategy. That´s why Kovalev in those first episodes will have the opportunity to ramp up the pace early on and surprise Ward with all his powerful artillery. If Kovalev wants to go for the knock out, he'll have to go the whole hog from the offset.

CINCO CLAVES DE SERGEY KOVALEV ANTE ANDRE WARD
 
El invicto ruso Sergey Kovalev (30-0-1 con 26 KOs), que ostenta el título de campeón semipesado OMB-FIB y de Súper Campeon AMB, defenderá sus tres cinturones este sábado ante el también invicto y ex doble monarca de los supermedianos Andre Ward. El combate tendrá lugar en el T-Mobile Arena de Las Vegas, Nevada y para Kovalev no será una pelea más.
 
“Krusher”  va contra el que quizás sea el rival más complicado de todos los ya enfrentados y en un verdadero choque de estilos. El poder destructivo del ruso contra la destreza técnica del estadounidense. Ward es un oponente rápido, elusivo y que maneja con extrema habilidad sus recursos técnicos. Ante un reto de esas características, Kovalev deberá tener en cuenta las siguientes claves si desea conservar su reinado.
 
APURAR TEMPRANO
Esta pelea no tiene misterios previos. El poder es de Kovalev y Ward recurrirá a su poder para evitarlo. En ese escenario, al comienzo Ward esperará para ajustar su libreto a la estrategia del ruso. Por ello, Kovalev en esos primeros episodios tendrá la oportunidad de apurar temprano y sorprender a Ward con toda su artillería de poder. Si Kovalev quiere noquear, tendrá que poner temprano “toda la carne en el asador”.

Los exilios son terreno abonado para la proliferación de clichés, falsas dicotomías y arquetipos simplistas. Al vértigo de entender desde fuera las tragedias personales se añade la dificultad de buscar sitio a los transterrados en una historia de la cultura que todavía entendemos principalmente según criterios nacionales: ¿dónde colocar, en una historia de la música nacional, a aquellos que fueron expulsados de la nación? ¿Cómo integrar su música en las historias que conocemos o cómo forjar otras historias? No ayuda tampoco, en el caso de los compositores españoles exiliados tras la Guerra Civil, el desconocimiento en el que permanece todavía gran parte de su producción. La grabación en CD de tres obras de uno de estos compositores, Salvador Bacarisse (el concierto para violoncello y orquesta en la menor op. 22, el Capricho concertante para violín y orquesta op. 70 y el cuarto concierto para piano y orquesta op. 88), tiene, por tanto, un interés que va más allá de la recuperación de repertorios olvidados: nos ayudará, sobre todo, a hacer más complejo, más rico en matices, menos rico en clichés y simplificaciones, nuestro entendimiento de la música de los exiliados.
El tropo sobre el que se ha fundamentado durante décadas nuestra visión de Bacarisse es el de exilio como ruptura, como esterilidad forzosa al estar el exiliado privado de su soporte vital: la nación. Manuel Valls alaba a Bacarisse en La música española después de Manuel de Falla (1962) por el «finísimo y mordaz talento musical» que mostró en los años de la República, pero se lamenta de que el exilio haya vuelto su obra (de la que cita expresamente el cuarto concierto para piano) «sosa e incolora». En 1970, Tomás Marco nombra a Bacarisse en La música de la España contemporánea entre los exiliados que «se exiliaron y anquilosaron»; en su Historia de la música española de 1983, vuelve a citarlo como ejemplo de trayectoria destruida por el exilio, ya que su música «no evoluciona» tras dejar España. Gran parte de la concepción historiográfica de Valls y Marco se fundamenta en una cierta ansiedad por superar lo que se considera atraso en la música española, incorporándola plenamente a las corrientes de la música europea. Por tanto, es comprensible que Bacarisse, que nunca manifestó interés por las corrientes que florecieron tras la Segunda Guerra Mundial, no fuese considerado interesante para construir una narrativa de la música española entendida como continuo avance hacia la vanguardia y el progreso. Incluso proyectos que miran a Bacarisse con simpatía y han intentado recuperar su obra en democracia tienen como trasfondo la idea de que es un compositor al que el exilio frustró, al contrario que otros que alcanzaron su madurez personal y creativa fuera de España, como Roberto Gerhard o Rodolfo Halffter.
Algunos aspectos de la biografía y la trayectoria de Bacarisse justifican estas interpretaciones. Nacido en Madrid en 1898 del matrimonio formado por un joyero francés y una zaragozana, el joven Bacarisse estudia Derecho y Filosofía y Letras en la Universidad Central de Madrid y piano y composición en el Conservatorio de esta misma ciudad, donde, en la clase de Conrado del Campo, conoce a Fernando Remacha y Julián Bautista, más tarde compañeros en el Grupo de los Ocho. En 1923, su poema sinfónico La nave de Ulises gana el Premio Nacional de Música, y no se estrena en la fecha anunciada al negarse los instrumentistas a ejecutarlo. Es este el primer escándalo – en muchos sentidos un clásico escándalo modernista (como los de la Consagración de la primavera o el Skandalkonzert de la Segunda Escuela de Viena) – que sitúa a Bacarisse como un compositor revolucionario, demasiado vanguardista para el Madrid de la época, un enfant terrible. Lo confirman como tal, en los diez años siguientes, su nombramiento como director artístico de Unión Radio Madrid, en la que difunde la música contemporánea española; su presentación, junto a otros siete jóvenes compositores como parte del Grupo de los Ocho en 1930; y su polémica participación en la Junta Nacional de Música y Teatros Líricos de la Segunda República.
Translation - English
Exiles are fertile ground for the proliferation of clichés, false dichotomies and simplistic archetypes. To the vertigo of understanding personal tragedies from the outside can be added the difficulty of finding a place for those transported in a history of a culture that we still principally understand according to national criteria: where should we place, in a history of national music, those who were expelled from the nation? How to we integrate their music into the histories we already know or how do we forge other stories? In the case of the Spanish composers exiled after the Civil War, the ignorance in which a great part of their production still resides does not help either. This CD recording of three works by one of those composers, Salvador Bacarisse (the concerto for violoncello and orchestra in A minor op. 22, concertante caprice for violin and orchestra op. 70, and the fourth concerto for piano and orchestra op. 88) therefore suggests an interest that goes beyond the recovery of forgotten repertoires. It will help, above all, to render our understanding of the music of the exiled more complex, richer in nuances, less replete in clichés and simplifications.
The trope on which our vision of Bacarisse has been based for decades is that of exile as rupture, as imposed sterility in the exile being deprived of his or her key foundation: the nation. In La música española después de Manuel de Falla/Spanish Music After Manuel de Falla (1962), Manuel Valls praises Bacarisse for the “very fine and mordacious musical talent” displayed by him during the years of the Republic, but he regrets that exile has rendered his work (of which he expressly cites the fourth concerto for piano) “dull and devoid of colour.” In 1970, in La música de la España contemporánea/The Music of Contemporary Spain, Tomás Marco names Bacarisse amongst the exiles who “went into exile and stagnated”. In his 1983 Historia de la música española/History of Spanish Music, he refers to him once again as an example of a career destroyed by exile, since his music “does not evolve” after leaving Spain. Much of the historiographical outlook of Valls and Marco is rooted in a certain anxiety in overcoming what is considered backward in Spanish music by seeking to fully incorporate it in the currents of European music. It is therefore understandable that Bacarisse, who never showed an interest in the currents that flourished after the Second World War, was not considered of interest for constructing a narrative of Spanish music understood as a continuous advance towards the avant-garde and progress. Even projects that regard Bacarisse sympathetically and have tried to recover his work with the return of democracy are based on the idea that he is a composer frustrated by exile, unlike others who attained personal and creative maturity outside Spain, such as Roberto Gerhard or Rodolfo Halffter.
Some aspects of Bacarisse's biography and trajectory justify these interpretations. Born in Madrid in 1898 from a marriage between a French jeweller and a Zaragozan girl, the young Bacarisse studied Law, Philosophy and Arts at Madrid Central University, and piano and composition at the Conservatory in the same city, where, in Conrado Del Campo´s class, he meets Fernando Remacha and Julián Bautista, who later on would be colleagues in the Group of Eight. In 1923, his symphonic poem La nave de Ulises/The Ship of Ulysses wins the National Music Prize, failing to have its premiere on the announced date when the instrumentalists refuse to perform it. This is the first scandal – in many ways a classic modernist scandal (in the vein of The Rite of Spring or the Skandalkonzert of the Second Viennese School) – which confirms Bacarisse as a revolutionary composer, too avant-garde for the Madrid of the time; an enfant terrible. He is confirmed as such. In the next ten years, his appointment as artistic director of Union Radio Madrid, on which he promotes contemporary Spanish music; his presentation, along with seven other young composers as part of the Group of Eight in 1930; and his controversial participation in the National Board of Music and Lyrical Theatres during the Second Republic.

La interiorista Sandra Soler cuenta en primera persona cómo escogió Microcemento de Topcret para revestir los suelos y paredes de la heladería barcelonesa Vioko.
Sandra Soler creó hace 10 años Mésdisseny, un estudio de interiorismo muy personal en el cual su objetivo siempre ha venido marcado por la voluntad de ser referente en el diseño de interiores. Sandra es especialista en retos, en ser capaz de simplificar lo complejo y poder convertir el caos en algo funcional y bello a la vez. Su propósito es claro: crear espacios que provoquen emociones. Para conseguirlo sabía que en Topcret podía encontrar profesionales que estuvieran a la altura de sus aspiraciones.
El vínculo entre Sandra Soler y Topcret les ha llevado a realizar grandes proyectos de gran notoriedad. Su potencial no sólo ha quedado patente en el diseño de interiores de la Casa X. Su filosofía y savoir faire también han quedado reflejados en el proyecto de la heladería Vioko del barrio barcelonés de El Born (España). Dar vida a este local desde cero fue todo un desafío para ambos que sólo podía finalizar en un dulce éxito. Así lo quiso compartir ella misma en primera persona.
El proyecto de la heladería Vioko supuso para mí un gran reto. Se trataba de convertir unas frías oficinas bancarias en un establecimiento de venta de helados y chocolates artesanos de gran calidad. A la dificultad de transformación del espacio había que añadirle la forma del local, que tenía forma de U, ya que en el medio se ubicaba la escalera de la comunidad de vecinos que había que integrar en el proyecto.
"
A la hora de realizar este proyecto tuve la suerte de disponer de una gran libertad. Los propietarios del establecimiento dejaron en mis manos la transformación del local y no marcaron ninguna pauta específica de cómo debía ser. Ello no quiere decir que no participaran en la toma de decisiones durante la ejecución del proyecto aportando sugerencias algunas de las cuales, evidentemente, fueron recogidas en el mismo."

The interior designer Sandra Soler tells us in her own words how she chose Topcret Microcement to coat the floors and walls of the Vioko ice cream shop in Barcelona.
Sandra Soler created Mésdisseny 10 years ago, a very personal interior design studio whose objective has always been informed by the desire to be a point of reference in the field. Sandra is a specialist in challenges, in being able to simplify the complex and to turn chaos into something functional and beautiful at the same time. Her purpose is clear: to create spaces that provoke emotions. To do this, she knew that Topcret could find professionals who lived up to her aspirations.
The link between Sandra Soler and Topcret has led them to undertake great projects of considerable renown. Their potential has not only been evident in the interior design of House X. Their philosophy and savoir faire have also been reflected in the Vioko ice cream project in the Barcelona neighbourhood of El Born (Spain). Bringing this place to life from scratch was quite a challenge for both of them and could only end in sweet success. That was what she wanted to share herself in her own words.
The Vioko ice cream project was a great challenge for me. It was a matter of turning cold bank offices into an establishment selling ice cream and handcrafted chocolates. To the difficulty of transforming the space I had to add that posed by the room, which was U-shaped, since in the middle their was a stairwell used by the bulding´s residents which had to be integrated into the project.
At the time of this project, I was fortunate to have a great deal of freedom. The owners of the establishment left the transformation of the premises in my hands and did not set any specific guidelines as to how it should be. This is not to say that they did not participate in the decision-making process during the project's implementation, as they made some suggestions which were evidently included in the project.
