The TSJC has provisionally suspended articles on the use of Catalan in the Ayuntamiento (read article in Castilian here, La Vanguardia). The Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Catalunya (TSJC) has provisionally suspended various articles on the regulations governing the use of Catalan in the Ayuntamiento and the Diputación de Lleida, which force those institutions to give preference to Catalan in their documents and communications. The High Court temporarily suspended several points in the regulations to resolve a pending ruling on the annulment of those contested articles. The regulation of the use of Catalan in the Barcelona Ayuntamiento, approved last February, was challenged in court by the municipal president of the PP, Alberto Fernández Díaz, while in Lleida it was challenged by the Convivencia Cívica Catalana. In view of the high court the suspended items "contain concrete and specific terms whose meaning the exclusion of Castilian is clear and manifest and prevent an interpretation different from the strict literal meaning." In the two orders by the TSJC have expressed an individual opinion by Judge Alberto Andres, who believes that the adoption of these precautionary measure have no legal justification and indicates that it is challenging many provisions of both regulations require a detailed analysis of each.
Spanish teenagers spend an average of an hour and a half a day on social networking sites (read article in Castilian here, El Periodico). Data from over 2,000 computers monitored by the company Danba, at the request of parents, revealed that 70 percent of the children's time is spent on these networks. The average online time in 2009, among children and adolescents aged between eight and 16 years of age was an hour and six minutes, of which 53 of those minutes were on social networks. So far, in 2010, the average is one hour and 55 minutes and one hour and 30 minutes is used on networks. Of the top sites monitored by the company, only very few are educational sites with the top 10 most used led by Tuenti and Facebook. Carlos Pavía, partner in the firm said "I am very sorry that when we compiled the top 10 sites that they did not include sites like Wikipedia or educational tools." A break down of the young people's time revealed that 70 percent of it was spent on social networks, 9 percent on search engines and 13 percent was spent watching videos. Looking at the distribution of parents worried about what their children are doing online it shows that parents in Catalunya, Valencia and Madrid are the most concerned. A report by the University of Camilo José Cela de Madrid says that the profile of teen connected to the internet is a girl with a Tuenti page, which connects several times a day, with friends and occasionally strangers and has more than 100 contacts.
The secretary of immigration compared the Pope to the Iman of Lleida (read article in Castilian here, El Pais). The secretary of immigration from the Generalitat, Oriol Amorós, in an interview with RAC1 said, it was difficult for him to find many differences between the two men saying, "the two are quite reactionary and have conservative versions of their own religions." Amorós' words have incensed the PP party with Alicia Sánchez-Camacho calling his statements as "explosive". The Pope's visit has raised passions with those who consider it an unnecessary waste preparing to protest. There remains uncertainty as to who from the political parties have been invited but the presence of José Montilla (PSC), Artur Mas, (CiU) and the PP leader Alicia Sánchex-Camacho and Albert Rivera from the Ciutadans. Joan Puigcercós from the ERC party and Joan Herrera from the ICV have declined their invitations.
