Why invest in real estate?
In the current economic climate, many people are shying away from investing in property. However, this is actually a great time to BUY! Due to the fluctuation of currency exchange rates which effect incomes and expenses, lifestyle changes are being made and many people are no longer able, or willing to maintain the cost of their properties. Because of this it is possible to buy property at a lower cost than its actual value. As the economy improves, the value of these properties will go up making this the ultimate buy low and sell high scenario.
Invest NOW and reap the rewards when the market turns around.

Part of the
What is Rosada? I guarantee you will find “Rosada” on every menu in every bar in Andalucía. You can get it “frito” (deep fried) or á la plancha (gently braised in a persillage of finely chopped parsley and garlic in olive oil). It is a white fish, flaky and juicy like Cod but of denser texture. Anyone who eats it will choose it again. Brits starved of the “fish and chip” experience can slake their nostalgia with Rosada. Like all great classic fishes it is best served plain.
ut what is it? On the plate it is white, although its name translates as “rosy” or “Pink”. If you haven’t got a clue what this fish is or how to find out, you are not alone. We have seen it translated on menus as “Pollock” (wrong), Hake (wrong) and “Salmon” (ludicrous). Descriptions of the fish as a dogfish (cartilaginous shark like fish) however, is down to the great fish aficionado Alan Davidson (Mediterranean Seafood, Penguin 1981 p26), who wrongly describes Rosada under “Sharks” thus: . . . the Spanish “Rosada” (a pretty name applied to fillets of various dogfish). . . . That’s it. No more information. He doesn’t even suggest you smother it with a “sofrito” (a sort of blokey concoction of tomatoes onions and garlic that he employs whenever the word Mediterranean threatens to border on the foreign).
To call a fish “a sort of shark/dogfish” gives rise, of course, to all those Chaz and Dave chip shop English names – Huss, Dutch eel, Rock Salmon. These now join the catalogue of mistakes on badly translated Andalucían “cart” menus. Perhaps Davidson regarded this fish, possibly the most popular lunch in southern Spain, as falling below his culinary pretensions. Or perhaps he felt that the name itself is simply too unspecific and you can’t guarantee what you are going to get. I’d sympathise with that point of view. Oh. It isn’t conger eel either.
firm-textured. The weight of whole fish averages 3-4 kilos (10 pounds). Its scientific names are genypterus blacodes and genypterus chiliensis. The South African variety genypterus capensis was the first to be marketed. They hardly vary except in skin colour. The Rosada has the head of a Pollock with two whisker sensors under the chin, and the body of an eel. The skin is characterised by golden yellow to pink ground colour, overlaid with mottling spots and with irregular dorsal blotches. It hunts between depths of 22 m and 1000 m, feeding mainly on crustaceans like small crabs and scampi. It also preys on fish such as anchovies, sardines and cephalopods. It can be caught throughout the year. The reason it’s not very well known to Spanish fishmongers even though they sell tons of it, is because it arrives on the fishmonger’s slab beheaded, filleted, gutted and skinned. It’s not caught around Spain so the fishermen don’t know what it is either. It is invariably frozen, which is why you can have Rosada and chips seven days a week, but fresh fish only on fishing days. Rosada is sometimes known as a “substitute” for local Merluza (Hake). Rosada is far superior to Hake both in texture and flavour, and freezing doesn’t impair it in the least. In fact modern freezing methods have the fish preserved more or less immediately it’s caught so that so-called “fresh” fish is often considerably older than the frozen.
To hunt down “Rosada” you have to gather what scant clues there are and aim for the Latin name. It’s the only way to pin the damn thing down. It seems, for example that “Rosada” is not the fish’s full name. The full name is “Rosada del Cabo”. Rosada de Cabo means “rosy thing of the cape”. The Cape refers to South Africa. So it turns out that this fish, though massively eaten in Spain, is not Spanish at all but from “The Cape”. Spanish Salt Cod, the most eaten fish in Spain, comes from Nova Scotia. Now it turns out that Andalucia’s favourite fish lunch has nothing whatever to do with Spanish fishing or fisheries. Rosada comes from the temperate marine waters of the southern hemisphere, the south African Cape, the waters of Argentina and of Chile, the south Atlantic round Brazil and the waters round New Zealand and South Australia. Rosada in fact, is Kingklip, but this doesn’t reduce the confusing flood of common names associated with it. In Europe it is known as cusk eel; in New Zealand as ling and in South America as congrio or cusk eel. Golden kingklip is also called golden Dorado, golden congrio and the red as pink cusk eel. There are three colours – Golden, Red and Black. The red or “rosy” is considered the best eating and with the best shelf life since the black version with its thin skin goes off quickly. Golden kingklip has skin of orange with brown and golden hues. Red kingklip has darker skin with strong red markings. The white meat is of good quality and 8 THE MARKET PLACE
Rosada is a good substitute for any recipe that calls for cod. It is not presently endangered. Its deep water rock habits make it difficult to kill en mass, and it is usually taken “on the side” during expeditions for other fish.

announced on June 6th that Spain’s anti-evictions lobby was to receive a European Citizens’ prize for its work in “fighting for European values”. The group, headed by Barcelona activist Ada Colau, defends people in Spain who are facing forced evictions from their homes because of an inability to meet their mortgage payments. They have collected over 1.5 million signatures as part of their campaign to see evicted homeowners in Spain freed of their outstanding mortgage debts. At present, many of the homeowners who have been evicted from their property in Spain are still required to pay According to a study by Knok, an agency off the remainder of their mortgage. monitoring the house exchange market, Current laws in Spain allow for this debt to be cancelled as long as creditors and Spain is the third most popular country for making home exchanges in the world. debtors have made a prior agreement.

This year only 13.3% had a budget of 200,000 to 250,000 Euros.
The US housing market recovery could help other markets The Core Logic Index of home prices rose in April by 3.2% compared with the March increase of 2.2%. Economist Bernard Lambert said the American housing market is recovering to the point of pushing the US economy up, and consequently other markets. “The rise in the index of home prices reinforces a scenario of substantial economic growth that can generate a new credit cycle, with positive impact on the world economy.” says Lambert. In addition, Lambert sees continuity in this trend: “The rapid formation of new households has a huge pent up demand, credit is relaxing and families are expecting rising housing prices, which is likely to be a key element for a sustained rise”. The sharp rise in real estate prices is boosting household wealth, by 1.4 trillion dollars in 2012 and probably in 2013 which could provide a significant boost to consumer spending.

Hazards of Air Travel - Germs at 30,000 ft It's a common complaint: Fly on a crowded plane and come home with a cold. What's in the air up there?
ir travellers suffer higher rates of disease infection, research has shown. One study pegged the increased risk for catching a cold as high as 20%. Summer holidays are a particularly infectious time of year, with planes packed full of families and all those germs.
One well-known study in 1979 found that when a plane sat three hours with its engines off and no air circulating, 72% of the 54 people on board got sick within two days. The flu strain they had was traced to one passenger. For that reason, many airlines remove passengers from planes within 30 minutes if Air that is recirculated there's no air circulation, but throughout the cabin is most obviously this practice is not often blamed. But studies mandatory. Much of the danhave shown that high-effiger comes from the mouths, ciency particulate air (HEPA) noses and hands of passenfilters on most jets today can gers sitting nearby. The hot capture 99.97% of bacterial zone for exposure is generally and virus-carrying particles. That said, when air circulation two seats beside, in front of and behind you. is shut down, which sometimes happens during long A number of factors increase waits on the ground or for the odds of contracting a short periods when passencough and runny nose. For gers are boarding or exiting, one, the environment at infections can spread like 30,000 feet enables easier wildfire.

Also, viruses and bacteria can live for hours on some surfaces - some viral particles have been found to be active up to a day in certain places. Tray tables can be contaminated, and seat-back pockets, which get stuffed with used tissues, soiled napkins and rubbish, can be particularly disgusting. Research has shown how easily disease can spread. Tracing influenza transmission on long-haul flights in 2009 with passengers infected with the H1N1 flu strain, Australian researchers found that 2% of passengers had the disease during the flight and 5% came down within a week after landing. Coach-cabin passengers were at a 3.6% increased risk of contracting H1N1 if they sat within two rows of someone who had symptoms in-flight. That increased risk for postflight disease doubled to 7.7% for passengers seated in a two-seat hot zone.
spread of disease. Air in airplanes is extremely dry, and viruses tend to thrive in lowhumidity conditions. When mucous membranes dry out, they are far less effective at blocking infection. High altitudes can tire the body, and fatigue plays a role in making people more susceptible to catching colds, too.
The epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2002-03 suggested a wider exposure zone, however. On
one flight studied, one passenger spread a particular strain to someone seated seven rows away, while people seated next to the ill passenger didn't contract the disease. That said, most people sitting near someone who is ill probably won't get sick. "When you get on board an aircraft, most of us don't have a say on who we sit next to. But that doesn't doom you to catching the flu," In 2005, a paper published in the Lancet concluded the perceived risk for travellers was higher than the actual risk, and that's still the case today.
Even so, there are some Basic Precautions Passengers can take to keep coughs away. Hydrate. Drinking water and keeping nasal passages moist with a saline spray can reduce your risk of infection. Clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. We often infect ourselves, touching mouth, nose or eyes with our own hands that have picked up something. Use a disinfecting wipe to clean off tray tables before using. Use First Defense Nasal Spray studies show using this can block up to 99% of airborne germs/bacteria also pollution, dust and allergens. continued on page 14

Avoid seat-back pockets. Open your air vent, and aim it so it passes just in front of your face. Filtered airplane air can help direct airborne contagions away from you. Change seats if you end up near a cougher, sneezer or someone who looks feverish. That may not be possible on very full flights, but worth a try. One sneeze can produce up to 30,000 droplets that can be propelled as far as six feet. Raise concerns with the crew if air circulation is shut off for an extended period. Avoid airline pillows and blankets (if you find them!).
Hidden Dangers in Security
You think the plane is bad? Security checkpoints harbour a host of hazards as well, researchers say. Airport security areas can make it easy to get sick. People are crowded together, and plastic storage bins that hold personal effects are not cleaned after each screening. People get bunched up in lines, where there is plenty of coughing and sneezing. Shoes are removed and placed with other belongings into plastic security bins, which typically don't get cleaned after they go through the scanner. A National Academy of Sciences panel is six months into a twoyear study that is taking samples at airport areas to try to pinpoint opportunities for infection. Check-in kiosks and baggage areas are other prime suspects in addition to security lines.
Rafael Urquizar presents ‘South Contrast’ collection at Malaga Automobile Museum Rafael was born 1971 in Malaga. His designs for local television and his collections are shown regularly on the Costa del Sol and the Pasarela Cibiles Madrid Novias
e were happy to attend the fashion show of a local designer Rafael Urquizar in the beautiful gardens of the Automobile Museum in Malaga, who presented his collection “South Contrast” Autumn-Winter 2014. Thirtytwo amazing outfits and a fantastic show, held in a very special location, made this an unforgettable event. I would describe Rafael’s collection as a successful mix of different trends: classic elegance meets futurism. He plays with different fabrics; invoking surprise, provocation, adventure and much enthusiasm with so many intricate details. For example: layers, ruffles and large volumes which gave an architectural form. His colour palette included black, white, sand, red and purple. Other outfits in two-tone; like white and black or red and black. The message: mix and match in a elegant way – everything is possible!
The museum, who regularly set the mark for the extraordinary, also held the inaugaration of their Las Vegas Style Chapel on the same evening. The chapel exudes a romantic air offering an original and unforgettable experience. The museum offers a complete wedding package with the chapel, rental of their dream cars, and the abundant art deco spaces offered by the museum for themed wedding dinners in Charleston Style, The Great Gatsby or Rockabilly etc. Thanks to Carmen from the Automobile Museum Malaga for the invitation, SolJournal for their contribution and Rafael Urquizar for the amazing collection.
There are many activities on offer at the museum to keep the whole family entertained this July and August. For more details see page 41. 14 THE MARKET PLACE

Want that Bikini Bod? Are you hoping to slim down, detoxify or just be healthier? More people are buying juicers.
Then start Juicing!
ome want to boost their freshproduce consumption in a timeefficient, taste bud-friendly way. Others are going on a multiday juice cleanse, a diet composed of solely fruit and vegetable juice, to jump-start weight loss or a lifestyle change. Juicing up a big pile of fruits and vegetables is certainly easier than peeling, chopping and preparing them in a soup or a stew. But nutritionists caution that it may be healthier to simply add a few more servings to your daily diet.
Some nutrients actually get lost in juicing, says Jennifer Nelson, director of clinical nutrition for the Mayo Clinic. "You're getting a higher quota of some nutrients, but not necessarily all of them." On the other hand, adding a serving of juice to a regular diet can be beneficial. Vegetable-averse people may find a strong vegetable taste, let's say of kale, is offset in a juice that also contains apple or other sweet fruit. Recipes tend to promote deep orange and leafy green vegetables often lacking in many diets. Retailers are seeing an increase in the sales of juicers and some credit a documentary, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," which chronicles the 60-day juice fast of an Australian filmmaker, Joe Cross, who travelled around the U.S. consuming mountains of produce that he put through a juicer in the back of his car. The film shows how he lost 82 pounds and put his autoimmune disease into remission. "People are sick and tired of being sick and tired," he says. Mr. Cross says he received a financing stake of less than 10% for his film from members of the family of Rupert Murdoch. Retailers say it has been hard to keep up with demand for juicers since it hit Netflix, in July 2011. Juicers generally fall into one of three categories: "fast," "slow" and "whole food."
16 THE MARKET PLACE
The fast kind, also known as traditional or centrifugal juicers, are loud machines that grind produce to a liquid in a few earsplitting seconds. Fans like the thintextured juice these machines produce, leaving the solid "pulp" behind. But some fast juicers don't process leafy greens well, and they don't handle finetextured wheat grass, a popular ingredient in the juicing world. They also lose points with some users because they generate heat, which experts say can deplete important nutrients.
The price of a Vitamix can seem a little steep and they are sold mainly in the commercial market but they seem more reasonable when you learn a Vitamix juicer also does the work of a blender, food processor, ice crusher, ice-cream maker, meat grinder and coffee grinder. Food-borne illness is a risk. "You need to start with fresh, clean produce in a very clean juicer," says Ms. Nelson, the Mayo Clinic nutritionist. Instead of juicing enough for a whole day, she advises juicing one serving at a time.
Breville says its machines generate insignificant heat (about two degrees Fahrenheit), which doesn't diminish nutrients in the juice. The absence of pulp appeals to people on a juice cleanse, says AdĂŠle Schober, a Breville spokeswoman. "A true juice cleanse is just the juice," she says.
Before beginning a juice cleanse, people should consult a doctor, Ms. Nelson says. Some juices interfere with medications, such as juice from leafy greens, which can cancel out blood thinners, she says. And juice fasts can pose a risk for people with chronic illnesses.
But slow juicers are gaining more attention. They crush or press juice out of produce in a few minutes, leaving less waste behind than a fast juicer does, and they typically do a better job with tricky ingredients like wheat grass, nuts and leafy greens. Consumers looking for fibre in their juice appreciate the pulp content in juice from a slow juicer.
A third method, known as whole-food juicing, uses high-speed blades to shred produce into a high-fibre drink that some purists think should be called a "smoothie." Vitamix, which make wholefood juicers, say the texture is a nutritional advantage. You juice the whole fruit or vegetable, including the pith, pulp, seeds and skin.

when: 27th July where: Plaza de Toros Malaga
Our Lady of El Carmen is the Patroness of the sea. Its feast is a major event in places with long seafaring traditions like Nerja, Caleta & Málaga. The feast of El Carmen is held on 16th July. The Virgin Mary is taken to the streets and off the coast, escorted by pilgrims and boats. Processions take place in many local coastal places, including Nerja, Caleta and Malaga.
The Young Voices of Flamenco Competition when: Saturday 13th July where: Nerja On the evening of 13th July at 10pm the Young Voices of Flamenco Competition will begin. Taking Place in the Plaza del Olvido there will be limited places, so get there early. This will be a magnificent occasion to enjoy flamenco through the voices of the singers who will come from different parts of Andalucia. The ticket price will be 4 Euros. This contest has been organised by the associatiion called "Ventana Abierta" (art, culture & people) in collaboration with Nerja Town Hall & local businesses.
54th International Festival of the Caves of Nerja
Best known as the lead guitarist, vocalist and songwriter for the British rock band Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler has also played and sung with other bands (like The Notting Hillbillies or Brewers Droop), and produced collaborative works with other musicians (Bob Dylan in Slow Train Coming). He also has a solo career in which he developed a style of his own, drawing on blues, rock and folk. Knopfler is ranked on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
Dinosaur Exhibition when: 2nd to 28th July where: Palacio de Ferias de Marbella About ten years ago, the Belgian artist Dirk Claesen got a project underway for a large prehistoric exhibition. He called it ‘Prehistoric Tour’. His extraordinary recreations are of great anatomical detail and based on the latest findings about biology, behaviours and lifestyles and show dinosaurs as living animals rather than cruel monsters. Put up to amazing success in Belgium, this exhibition is a fascinating adventure into the world of life-size creatures.
when: 24th to 27th July where: Nerja Caves In its 54th edition, the Cueva de Nerja Dance and Music Festival has a few new features. First of all, the Festival will be unfolding in four days in an effort to minimise its impact on the cave. Secondly, it will host a co-production between Cueva de Nerja and the Málaga Flamenco Biennale: a concert by Manolo Sanlúcar and the Málaga Symphonic Orchestra, under the baton of the prestigious Italian conductor Carlo Palleschi. Otherwise, the Festival is keeping its traditional structure, with concerts by singer Pastora Soler, who has a long career on her shoulders, Ferdinand Steiner (clarinet) and the Salzburg String Quartet, and the latest production of the Víctor Ullate Ballet Company. Four world-class artists taking the best of their art to the depth of the Nerja Cave this summer.

By Martin Ward
One week, two Jaguars. The F-Type in Spain and an E-Type in Yorkshire.
he F-Type is available in three models: V6, V6 S and V8 S and we drove all three models while on the event in Spain. Before I went, and after studying the standard equipment, power and cost, I felt the V6 S would be my first choice, but after driving all of them, and understanding them better, would my mind be changed? The 2,995cc Supercharged V6 produces 340ps, goes from 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds and top speed, where allowed, of 161mph. The V6 S produces 380ps, 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 171mph. The Supercharged V8 S has a 5.0-litre that produces a massive 495ps, 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 186mph which like the other engines is electronically limited. The CO² figures range from 209g/km to 259g/km and official combined fuel consumption figures are from 25.5mpg to 34mpg. We got on average 16.6mpg from the V8 S, but this was driving up and down the mountains, using many gear-changes, so was not really a fair result, but 16.6 was better than I had expected. The V6 and S have two tail-pipes in the centre of the rear panel,and the V8 two twin-pipes at each side of the car. Ian Callum, Director of Design told us that the team wanted to make the F-Type as small as possible, but had to have all the characteristics of a full-blown sports car, with no compromises. During the design stage they kept changing small details to improve the styling and keep it within the size required. Engineering and the Vehicle Line Director had to move items that would normally be under the bonnet to elsewhere in the car to save room. The design does have some minor resemblances to the E-Type. The F-Type is bold and modern. It looks great from every angle and is certainly an eye-catcher and head-turner. The large clamshell bonnet with the large power-bulge is every bit a Jaguar, as is the boot lid which has a ‘dip’ in it that also makes it reminiscent of the E-Type. The design team and engineers have created a very stylish car that does have some nostalgic features, but the swathe lines and features are very up to date and just right for today’s market.
20 THE MARKET PLACE
The roof on the convertible goes up and down in 12 seconds and can be operated at speeds of up to 30mph. We tested this and it certainly does work. We had the pleasure of driving the F-Type V8 at great length, covering around 288km up in the mountains above Pamplona where the roads were quiet, in good condition and boasted some spectacular scenery. The 8-speed gearbox was up and down constantly, very quick, quiet and efficiently. The steering was absolutely precise and the brakes were, as expected (and needed!) brilliant. The handling was also spot-on, with only the odd movement from the rear under heavy acceleration, but the roads were a bit moist and some leaves and needles from the trees didn’t help grip. The body on the F-Type is made entirely from aluminium, which offers considerable weight savings but also offers the same robustness of conventional metal. Using lightweight materials helps to reduce CO², improve mpg, acceleration, braking and agility. There are many nice features on the car, such as the ‘pop-up’ deployable spoiler that activates at speeds above 60mph, creating a 120kg down-force on the rear to help keep the car stable and the rear wheels firmly planted on the road. The door handles are flush with the body, and are only visible when you want to open the doors. The S models have an ‘Active Exhaust System’ which is really a ‘Loud-Button’ – press a small switch near the gear-shift and the exhaust note roars into life, changing the whole sound of the car. The interior is first class in terms of design and quality, though spending a little extra on the leather dash, with bold stitching is well worth the money. Although the cockpit is realtively small, there is plenty of room for two large adults, and the designers have managed to crate two separate areas for driver and passenger, by almost dividing them off. You do feel surprisingly comfortable in the car, the seats are supportive, yet firm and the ride of the car is not at all harsh. The facts are, that Jaguar have got this car right.

obviously spent a lot of time, moneyanddevelopmentensuring everything in the car works perfectly, the package is right, and the price is competitive. Is the V6 S still the best choice? It certainly is. It has more than enough power, the standard specification is absolutely right, it looks great, and is priced correctly.
Jaguar E-Type V12 2+2, Northern Group of Motoring Writers 4 0 t h A n n i v e r s a r y, Harrogate. The NGMW held a special event to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and invited manufacturers to bring some old cars. The second Jaguar in the space of a few days, and this was really a classic, a British Icon. The car belongs to Jaguar Heritage and is in pristine condition, so cared for and loved by the volunteers who keep it running and in perfect working order. This E-Type is powered by a V12 5.3-Litre petrol engine that produces 244ps, goes from 0-60 mph in 8 seconds, a top speed of 135mph where permitted (and if you are brave enough!). The official fuel consumption figure at the time was 21.3mpg. The fuel is supplied to the engine by 4 Ze-St Carburettors. We took it out on the roads around Harrogate and the first thing you notice when you get in the car is the ultra-thin three-spoke steering wheel with five holes in each of the spokes to give the driver a sporty look and feel - this is just not seen these days. You have to climb over the large sill, but once in the car is very comfortable. You have to turn the key, and press the accelerator to the floor to get plenty of fuel into the engine before it roars into life - it makes the most wonderful sound. The interior is in fantastic condition with the leather seats looking as though they have hardly been sat in. The rocker-buttons for all the controls are large and pretty basic, but all work and are functional.
Out on the road it is an honour and a pleasure to be able to drive such a masterpiece, but it is not as quick as you think it is going to be. In fact, it is really quite leisurely. The last thing you want to do when driving it is to do any damage to either the mechanical side or the bodywork so caution, safety and patience are the words. The four-speed manual gearbox is easy to use and it goes up and down the gears as good as any new car today. The engine note when out on the road is superb and you can hear it from many hundreds of yards away. The V12 was the first E-Type to have Power-Steering as standard so driving around Harrogate it felt light, with no effort required to go around corners. The V12 was built from 1971 to 1974 and was a success for Jaguar with around 8,000 Convertibles produced and 7,300 Coupes. The price then was around £3,000 and this car is worth many, many times more than that today – oh, if only I had bought one and kept it !! The length of the E-Type is 4,684mm compared to the F-Type at 4,470mm. Two great cars in one week, and both the best of British from different eras.

Merida Extremadura Are you fed up of the coast? Do you want to escape the costas this summer and explore somewhere with a great historic past? The beach destinations in Spain are of course popular for a reason, but travel further afield to the town of Merida in Extremadura and you will discover a very different Spain.
ithout knowing anything about Merida it may be puzzling why a Spanish town of some fifty thousand people has been twinned with Rome, Italy, or why a number of cities around the world are named after it. People though travel to Merida because of its history, a history that dates back to around 25BC. Merida is situated in the Badajoz province of Extremadura and benefits from mild winters and hot summers. Some people indeed find the summers too hot, so if you do not like extreme heat wait until the early autumn for your visit. Merida was founded in the rule of Augustus, and was originally known as Augusta Emerita. The new settlement was designed to protect one of the most important passing points of the Guadiana River in the region of Lusitania, and the settlement continued to grow. Its importance grew to become the capital of Lusitania and also one of the largest and important settlements in the whole of the Roman Empire. With the fall of the Western Roman Empire, Merida fell to the hands of the
Visigoths, and then the Moors in 713AD. Merida though returned to Christian rule in 1230AD, although the importance of Merida had long since passed by. Most people that visit Merida do so for the Roman ruins, and despite the reuse of building materials by the Moors, and destruction by Napoleonic forces, the remains are the most impressive in Spain. Arguably the most impressive of these sites is that of the Puente Romano, a Roman bridge that crosses the Guadiana River. Still used today, it is the longest remain of all the Roman bridges. Merida is also home to the Circo Romano, the ruins of the hippodrome where chariot races, a la Ben Hur, were undertaken. The original capacity of the stadium was in the order of thirty thousand, and the remains are the oldest still in existence within Spain. Additionally there are ruins of the old forum, the Temple of Diana, and the impressive triumphal arch, the Arch of Trajan. Some of the old Roman buildings are still in use today, with the Amphitheatre and theatre housing summer festivals,
where old plays are put on to the public. The two Roman reservoirs dammed by the Roman Proserpina and Cornalvo dams, still connect to the five mile Acueducto de los Milagros. The Roman history of the area can be observed in person, as many elements are within easy walking distance of each other, equally though exhibits have been put on at the Museo Nacional de Arte Romano. More recent history is also on display with the Moorish Alcazaba fortress built in earlier walls, and also the impressive Church of Santa Eulalia. MĂŠrida doesnâ€™t have many restaurants to choose from, and most are mediocre. But La Dehesa de Castuo is actually a shop filled with regional foods from Extremadura but has a small patio restaurant offering lots of different toasts with hot and cold toppings. The toppings (most of which are sold in the shop) are excellent and range from Iberian Ham to Smoked Cod and Tuna. This place is worth a try if you decide to visit. For those interested in getting off the beaten track a bit and being amazed at the quality of these Roman ruins within a 4 hour drive, then Merida is a must see destination. A small but interesting town with its own friendly charm and one which is not overun with foreign tourists when you visit the abundant sites. If you are interested in going to Merida, the Phoenix Club, Torre del Mar, have organised a trip for October 16th to 19th at the Hotel Velada Merida (in the centre). The price is 160 Euros for 2 people sharing a double room - price includes breakfast, coach fare, travel insurance and guide.

The Open Championship
Muirfield 18th-21st July Often called the ‘British Open’, the oldest of the four majors is simply ‘the Open’ and the fact that it has always been held in the British Isles should not deflect from the fact that it truly is the world’s greatest golfing event.
he 2013 Open Championship will be the 142nd Open Championship, held at Muirfield Golf Links in Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland. The 2013 event will be the sixteenth Open Championship played at Muirfield. The most recent was in 2002, when Ernie Els won his third major championship in a playoff over Stuart Appleby, Steve Elkington, and ultimately in a sudden-death playoff over Thomas Levet. Nick Faldo won the previous Open at the venue, in 1992; the first was in 1892.
Open record), eight strokes clear of Thomas Bjorn and Ernie Els. Woods had already won the US Open (by a record 15 strokes), and added the PGA Championship later in the year, then took the Masters early in 2001, so he uniquely held all four Major titles at the same time.
The Good Times...
... and the bad times

Seve had After looking in contention with just four holes to play, the Tom Watson hot on his heels, but Watson was struggling on hapless Australian managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, gifting Ernie the road hole 17th after hitting his shot over the back of the Els his 4th Major green and onto the road behind. title. After shooting bogey-bogeyHere was Seve, about to putt bogey-bogey in on the 18th. The crowd held its good conditions in breath as the ball rolled leisurely the home run, Scott towards the hole and dropped was to finish one in, after what had seemed like shot behind Els. an eternity. Seve punched the air and gave one of the greatest celebrations in golf history. This Scott was to gain redemption the following year, winning the legendary moment was later to Masters on the second hole of a sudden death playoff against become immortalised in the form Ángel Cabrera. It was his first major championship and the first of a logo for the 2012 European time an Australian had won the Masters. Ryder Cup Team.
Thomas Bjorn, Royal St George’s 2003
Greg Norman, Turnberry, 1986 Norman was the nearly man for so long. Whenever he looked likely to win a major, someone would pitch in on the 18th from an impossible position. Norman was also partly to blame for his nearly-man title as he had thrown a few major titles away.
After having held the lead for much of the final round, Thomas Bjorn fell apart on the closing holes, allowing American rookie Ben Curtis to win the 132nd Open Championship at Royal St George’s. The big Dane’s double bogey at the 16th, where he had a ‘Hamlet moment’, taking three attempts to get out of a greenside bunker, effectively handed the Claret Jug to Curtis. Bjorn bogeyed the 15th, took five at the 16th after his nightmare in the bunker, and dropped another shot at the 17th. That meant he needed a birdie at the 18th to force a play-off, but could only make par.
His debut major win finally came after a course record equalling 63 on day two and a fighting 3rd round 74 in a gale. Norman strolled the last two holes of the championship and won by five. He was able to savour the moment and got a standing ovation from players and crowds alike. Speaking after the event Norman said, “Winning a golf championship is a wonderful thing, especially when it's the British Open, which is the true Open, the oldest championship It’s probably fair to say that Bjorn didn’t take a beach holiday in golf.” for a while afterwards.
Tiger Woods, 2000 Tiger Woods started the new millennium with a stunning victory at St Andrews, shooting four sub-70 rounds (67-66-6769) and, incredibly, never finding himself in a bunker all week. Woods was untouchable, finishing at 19 under par (another 28 THE MARKET PLACE

double bogey six to become the first Frenchman since 1907 to win the British Open. After flirting with the Barry Burn off the tee, van de Velde chose to go for the green with his second shot instead of laying up. This decision would come back to haunt him as the ball flew way right, landing in the deep rough. Van de Velde’s third shot then found the water leading to the iconic image of the Frenchman standing hands on hips, shin deep in the Burn, as he debated whether to try to hit his ball out of the water. He went on to finish with a triple-bogey, a playoff, and loss to Paul Lawrie. Van de Velde said afterwards “Maybe I should have laid up. The ball was lying so well. Next time, I’ll hit a wedge and you’ll all forgive me?”

Horoscope July Mar. 21st - Apr. 20th
Get set for a very busy, productive month. You will be having meetings, communicating with a lot of people, and likely traveling to at least one close-by city, too. You'll need to stay on your toes, for planets in Gemini move events at a fast clip. Gemini rules news, so lots of it will be swirling around you, and you'll need to be organized to keep bits of information from falling through the cracks.
All through the second half of 2012 and through 2013, you have been waiting for your moment to hit that legendary home run, and it will finally happen this month, Gemini. You will only have a small sliver of time in which to act - about three weeks - but it could bring together all that you have worked so hard to launch or materialize.
Leos are known to be very warmhearted, and your sign is known to instantly put others at ease. You like to be with friends, and in the last twelve months, Jupiter in Gemini has worked hard to help you to expand your circle of both good friends and casual contacts. It's time to think about you and to enjoy life more!
May 22nd - June 21st
July 23rd - Aug. 21st
Sept. 24th - Oct. 23rd
This month you'll be thinking "we" rather than "me," which reflects a bit of a change for one of the most independent souls of the zodiac. You have good reason to think this way! With many planets on the Western side of your horoscope, the see-saw is tipping toward your partnership side of the chart.
If you feel Jupiter has not done enough for you, this month will be different and may stand out, for Jupiter will be boosted by so much planetary energy. Do all you can to leave the office and to socialize as much as possible. If you start a new and intriguing relationship now, it may last a very long time, possibly forever.

Until now, you've had mostly challenges and precious little luck, and too little assistance from the outside, say, from friends or associates. You must be thinking, "I just can't get a break!"

July may be the month that works out to fulfill the promise of 2013, namely that you are finally in line to raise your earned income to a new, important lucrative level. Jupiter, giver of gifts and luck, has been in your second house of salary for months, but without a new moon to unlock its gifts, Jupiter can't help you. Now, that changes - the new moon will change everything. Dear Cancer, the past years have been tough ones, mainly because heavy duty planets in cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) have been waging battles with one another, on and off, since 2008. You've not had much cosmic help - not until now. In this glorious month, Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will enter Cancer for the first time since mid-2001 to mid-2002. On the very first day of the month, you may get good news about your career and money - you may see a rise in status, and a commission, bonus, or a fine company benefit (like health insurance, more holiday time, and the like) come to you, too.

Some signs are a little uncomfortable with dealing with complex, big money deals, but not you, Scorpio. You are known for being skilled at making money multiply while you sleep, and others wish they had your talent for these types of things. This all is fortunate, for you have a big money month coming up, so you can use the full extent of those financial talents, and prove to one and all, when it comes to negotiation. If you don't have a love partner, you may use this exceptional opportunity to link up with a business colleague. You may be forming a partnership or hiring a collaborator, like an agent, lawyer, accountant, or other expert that only can be described as a one-onone partnership with you. From month's end onward, appropriate and well-respected experts will start to enter your life - one will likely be perfect for your needs. Things start off on the right foot from the moment the month begins. With the Sun in your home sector, your good news may come from the kind gesture of one of your parents or from another family member. Or, it may be news that thrills you concerning a lease or purchase / sale of real estate. Uranus always brings surprising news out of left field.

Local News Local News Local News Protest by Rocamol - Families of Virgin del Mar Pupils
The Association 'Rocamol' representing the families from the Nerja school ‘Virgin del Mar’ (popularly known as El Tablazo), carried out a protest last month, marching from the doors of the school to the El Salvador church on the Balcon de Europa, distributing leaflets on route. They called for the construction of a new school on a planned site in Fuente del Baden. The spokesman for the association, Francisco Javier Gomez, explained that this initiative aims to “fight for our rights because it seems that the Malaga Department of Education of the Junta de Andalucía is opposed to the change in the location of our educational centre and does not want us to have adequate facilities to benefit our children”. The slogan read ‘The right to choose a school’, as the parents and children marched, asking their fellow Nerjeños and Nerjeñas to support their crusade. They will continue with a written notice to the provincial delegate of the Ministry of Education (Patricia Dawn) asking for an explanation to why they deny this important project for the municipality, since it would not only expand the educational opportunities but offer Nerja with many new jobs and better facilities.
Royal British Legion Nerja As we head into our Spanish summer, lazy days spent by the pool, or beach, enjoying the barbeques, cool white wine, tapas and all the fiestas, perhaps with family who are relaxing after a hard year at work, spare a thought for the young men and women who are serving in searing heat, dangerous situations and far from their loved ones in Afghanistan. Then give a thought to the fact that some of them will be redundant in a few months time, some will be trying to piece back together their bodies and their minds, and their families will be fearfully wondering what their future holds. Their contribution means that we can enjoy the freedom that we have, but at what price? This is where the Legion comes into play, helping all those who have injuries, are shocked, or just need time to recover from the sights and situations they have witnessed, or indeed have made the 40 THE MARKET PLACE
biggest sacrifice of all. Their families too need help from us – while their husbands, wives, sons and daughters have been defending us, they have been holding the fort at home so that there is a welcome and loving place to return to. Next time you see The Royal British Legion box in your local store, bar, restaurant, paper shop or elsewhere please drop a few centimos in. They all count towards the huge commitment the RBL has made to helping all those serving and ex members of the armed forces and their families, and you can feel the benefit of giving to a very worthy cause. I am sure this is how all of us in the Nerja branch view our regular lunches and raffles – a fun, and companionable way to raise a little money, but also to enjoy ourselves. There is not often a sad face at our lunches and we consider ourselves fortunate to have such happy friends. If you would like to join us, you will be made most welcome - just contact Eleanor on 958 828 708 (for lunch at La Herradura) or Marilyn on 952 526 423 (for lunch at Al Andalus, Maro). For information on the RBL contact Dave on 654 085 811. We look forward to meeting you.
Junta de Andalucia to Protect Remaining Coastline of Costa Tropical The Junta de Andalucia regional government is planning to protect any remaining undeveloped coastline. According to the Junta’s records, there remain around 1,000 hectares of building land on the Costa Tropical that has not been used. With the ‘Plan for the Protection of the Coastal Corridor,’ the Junta hopes to protect the first 500 metres of the coast from the shoreline to where it meets this unused building land, and will recategorise it as green-belt land. The eastern end of the Costa Tropical is still fairly untouched, whereas the western end has been heavily developed, meaning there is little that the Junta can do about it now. The new law will not affect towns with their PGOU (municipal urban development plan) already approved, providing that the land has developers interested in it. But in the case of Almuñecar, for example, the PGOU has still not been approved, which means that it will be heavily affected by the new law. According to the head of the Board for Agriculture, Fishing and The Environment, Gloria Vega, the Costa Tropical has around 3,000 dwellings planned within this 500 metre margin,
one third of which belong to Almuñecar/ Herradura.

Competa Youths to be Prosecuted. Sixteen youths are to be prosecuted for the killing of a British man in June 2009. Stephen Mallon, 49, died in hospital 11 days after he was brutally beaten and possibly pushed over a four-metre high wall. Allegedly, there was an argument inside La Estrella bar between Mallon, his two sons, three British friends, and sixteen Spanish youths. The argument escalated and was taken outside the bar, where the accused beat the six British men and ultimately pushed Mallon over the wall. His two sons were also injured. One was hit with an iron bar and consequently was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. The accused, all between ages 18 and 25 and all from Competa, Canillas de Albaida and Archez, are charged with various crimes, the most serious of which carries a 12 year sentence for homicide. Two others are charged with causing injury with a dangerous instrument, and the other 13 face one year prison sentences for brawling. The prosecution also called for the victim’s wife to be paid E120,000 and each of his two children E90,000.

Food of the Month Pineapple Here's a fruit we associate with summer, or at least the leisure of sunny days spent by the beach: pineapple. Pineapple is an excellent source of manganese. Although needed only in very small amounts, manganese is a mineral that plays an important role in the body's detoxifying capabilities. Specifically, it is part of an antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase, which fights free radicals. Manganese is also needed for blood sugar regulation, normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, calcium absorption, and metabolism. Pineapple also contains potassium, which is important in the maintenance of healthy blood pressure. As with many fruits, pineapple also supplies Vitamin C, an antioxidant. In addition, regular consumption of pineapple appears Nutrition Tidbits for to have beneficial effects on digestion. In some research, Pineapple bromelain, a substance obtained from pineapple juice or pineapple core extract, has been shown to reduce inflammation. Some uses for bromelain include reducing swelling after one cup of pineapple chunks injury or surgery (particularly ear, nose, or throat surgeries), treating osteoarthritis pain and contains : swelling, or treatment of hay fever. Calories : 74 kcal When it comes to picking a ripe pineapple, size does not matter. Obviously, a larger fruit will have more edible portion, but you cannot tell the degree of ripeness by looking at the Fat : 0.2 g size. Instead, choose fruit that feels heavy for its size. Avoid fruits that have soft spots, Carbohydrates : 19.5 g bruises, or sunken "eyes." Protein: 0.9 g There are several ways of cutting a whole pineapple. First, cut off the tip and the base of the pineapple. Rest the flat base on the cutting board. One method is to cut the pineapple lengthwise into quarters. Remove the core from each quarter section, then slice the whole quarter off the skin. Another method involves cutting off the skin in long strips and removing the "eyes" with the tip of a knife before slicing the pineapple into sections.

Improve Athletic Performance with Beetroot Juice If you want to improve your athletic performance and stamina, there's no real substitute for simply putting time into working out. But if you just want to give yourself that little edge in endurance or speed, then beetroot juice may be the answer. Beetroot is high in nitrate which is known to protect the blood vessels from injury, while nitric acid expands blood vessels and therefore increases the flow of oxygen to the cells. This increases power to the muscles and the length of time that the muscles can exercise without tiring. Early studies into the effectiveness of beetroot juice for exercise showed that people who drink the juice for several days before undergoing exercise tests do indeed use less oxygen in their muscles, and are correspondingly able to exercise for longer. In one study, drinking beetroot juice decreased oxygen needs by 19 percent and increased exercise endurance time by 17 percent.
Five reasons to start using goat's milk soap 1) Delays Signs of Skin Aging - Goat's milk soap delays signs of skin again due to its high content of alpha-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid. Alpha-hydroxy acids break down dead skin cell bonds, removing dead skin cells from the skin's surface and leaving behind new cells on the surface that appear smoother and more healthy. 2) Not a Chemical Counterfeit - Water-based soaps on mainstream supermarket shelves use harsh chemical acids to break down dead skin cells. The lasting effect of chemical acids on the skin is similar to a chemical â€˜burn.â€™ Alpha hydroxyl acids found in goat's milk, work with skin instead of breaking it down and aging it further. 3) Anti Inflammatory Properties - Goat's milk reduces skin inflammation due to its fat molecule content. The cream present in goat's milk is a moisturizer, soothing dry and damaged skin, possessing an anti-inflammatory effect. 4) Loaded with Essentials - Goat's milk is packed full of essential nutrients and vitamins like vitamin D, C, B1, B6, B12, and E, that feed the skin and are absorbed into the body. 5) Treats Acne - Studies now show that goat's milk is effective for treating acne and skin conditions. This is primarily because goat's milk has anti-bacterial properties that delay the growth of microbial organisms that spur the spread of acne.

Not only is yoga exceptional for reducing stress, relaxing the body and taming disease, but it's also a fabulous method for shedding unwanted pounds. By increasing oxygen intake, unblocking energy and strengthening the endocrine system, this ancient practice can greatly improve weight control. Paired with other health enhancing habits, integrating a yogic programme into a daily routine can revitalize your life - along with your waistline. Since a balanced body is a prerequisite for maintaining healthy weight, yoga is the perfect practice to adopt. Known to relax the muscles and mind, it also massages the internal organs. Digestion and circulation are improved, detoxification becomes more effective. Additionally, yoga encourages endocrine equilibrium which stabilizes the hormones. When the hormonal system is operating at peak efficiency, proper weight is sustained. Oxygen utilization is enriched as well - helping to increase metabolism. 48 THE MARKET PLACE
When you eat meals at different times rather than on a regular schedule, your body goes into stress mode. For example, when you eat breakfast at 7 a.m. one morning and 11 a.m. the next, your body becomes confused about where its next meal is coming from. This causes the secretion of the stress hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol lead to spikes in insulin, which causes inflammation and can increase the risk of many cancers.
Why your skin benefits from omega-3s Fish oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been proven to have numerous health benefits. One of the most well-established benefits to omega-3s is their potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Since both inflammation and oxidative stress play a key role in the development of acne, it makes sense that an increased omega-3 intake could reduce the severity of the condition. In addition, omega-3s (particularly DHA) have also been shown to help reduce mental distress including anxiety, depression and stress. This may be another explanation for their acne-fighting benefits, since stress is a major contributor to acne.

THE MARKET PLACE 49
was once a sleepy fishing village but now the town has a population of over 21,000. The Balcón de Europa is a magnificent promenade that was made famous by King Alfonso XII , who’s statue now takes pride of place at the far end. Close by is the 17th century Church of El Salvador, and the beautiful gardens of Capistrano Playa. The town boasts an active Centro de Cultura, and a new attraction is The Fuente de Europa in Verano Azul Park, which is a very impressive monument, made from pieces of stone donated from EU member states. There are many beaches to be found either side and in front of the town, including Burriana with its numerous cafés and restaurants. Here too, you can take advantage of the water sports on offer, including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing. Just outside Nerja on the coast road towards Maro is a very impressive aquaduct which used to supply the local sugar factory, but is now used to carry water to local farms.

Torre del Mar
is just 30 minutes from Malaga, and is the beach resort of Velez Málaga. Its population of 21,000 grows between June and September to 150,000. The towns attractions have expanded over the last few years to cope with the demand, and now the four kilometres of beach have been enhanced by an impressive promenade, which stretches all the way to Caleta de Vélez, a port providing over 200 berths and offering sailing and water sports. Throughout the summer, there are many Chiringuitos on the beach, serving fresh barbequed fish and ice cold beers. In 2002, Paseo de Larios was pedestrianized, and is now a tranquil promenade, with plenty of pavement cafés and restaurants. At the seafront end of Larios is a line of bars and discos which continue throughout the night on Fridays and Saturdays. The history of Torre is uncertain, but it is thought that it might have been part of an ancient Greek settlement, known as Mainake, which was destroyed by the Carthaginians. Tombs of the Carthaginians were found at the mouth of the river Velez. More recently, it was a small fishing village until major development began in the 1970’s.

Dog Awarded UK Gold Medal
victims are undergoing anti-rabies treatment. The dog was neither muzzled nor on a lead during the attack and was later confirmed by a vet to be carrying the rabies virus. It is believed the animal’s vaccinations were not up to date and had picked up the illness while on a family holiday in Morocco.
On July 30, 2009, a Guardia Civil sniffer dog named Ajax along with his handler were in Mallorca in preparation for the arrival of King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia when an ETA car bomb exploded under a police car, killing two young officers.
This has been the first rabies incident in Spain since 1975 therefore the authorities have issued a warning to anyone who has been bitten, licked or scratched by any animal in the Toledo area since mid-May urging them to seek urgent medical advice. The rabies risk for other areas of Spain remains unchanged but it is best to avoid unnecessary contact with wild and even domestic animals.
Ajax was called into action to search the area and located a second bomb under another Guardia Civil vehicle and, as a result, the area was safely Ajax and his handler Sergeant cleared and a controlled explosion Juan Carlos Alabarces Muñoz. (Pic from PDSA website) was carried out, dispersing shrapnel over a 100 metre radius but without causing any injury.
CAS advises that when you take your pet in for their required annual treatments, you should ask your vet about other vaccinations which can protect your animal against diseases they are more likely to contract in Andalucía, such as parvo or heartworm for example. Also, at this time of year it is import to discuss flea, tick and mosquito prevention for your pets.
It was later found that the bomb had a motion sensor which TAIL (Torrox Animal International League) would have caused a considerable amount of damage and certain death to anyone nearby. There is no doubt that the At TAIL in Torrox we currently house in excess of 47 dogs actions of Ajax and his handler saved the lives of countless and puppies, that have been rescued from many scenarios, too many to mention! if you are interested in adopting or people. fostering, in particular puppies, please check out our website At a police conference in Madrid during June, Ajax was presented www.tailtorrox.webs.com for more info. with the Gold Medal from the UK’s People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals. The award is considered to be the canine equivalent of Events – July the George Cross.

In Spain the law states that all dogs, cats and ferrets 143. over three months old must be microchipped and vaccinated Adoptions update against rabies.
The rabies vaccination has to be renewed every year plus all dogs must be treated for worms at least once a year and both of these must be recorded in the pet passport. The Junta is primarily concerned with these diseases because they can possibly be passed onto humans by household pets even though these incidents are quite rare nowadays. The reminder follows a recent warning issued in the Toledo area after a dog suffering from rabies bit four children, severely injuring a two year old who had to be admitted to intensive care. The dog was put down the same day as the attack and the
