Police called as O’Leary pokes fun at Spanair’s despairing workers RYANAIR boss Michael O’Leary needed police protection at Bilbao Airport on Tuesday after a bust-up with furious workers from Spanair. The Spanish airline folded a fortnight ago, and O’Leary had announced at a press conference that his budget airline would take over some Spanair routes from Barcelona from April, including those to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. That will be a relief to the tourism sector, because it will compensate in part for the loss of Spanair’s customers. But it will be of scant consolation to the company’s out-of-work Spanish workforce. And as if his declaration to snap up those flight slots weren’t bad enough for the 30-strong Spanair hecklers, he then made a provocative victory sign in front of TV cameras. Tempers flared and several people surrounded the Irishman, swearing at him and giving him the derogatory middle finger as Basque regional police officers intervened. He was then escorted to the departures gate at Bilbao Airport for a flight to Madrid. The Spanair workers, who had led a nine-day lock-in at Bilbao Airport after their firm folded, then held a sit-down protest following O’Leary’s departure. Ana Oramas, the Mayor of

La Laguna and a Canarian MP, wrote on Twitter that he was “arrogant and uneducated”, and added: “He showed a total lack of sensitivity for people who have just lost their jobs.” Local union leader Jon Herrera accused O’Leary of a lack of respect, saying: “He has stood in front of a group of workers who have lost their jobs overnight and raised his hand in a symbol of victory. He has disqualified himself.” The Irish company, which

already flies to 36 destinations from Tenerife South, will also increase flight frequencies on another four existing Spanair routes from Barcelona, to Ibiza, Malaga, Palma and Seville. All told, it means that Ryanair will add more than 190 flights to Barcelona airport and will carry more than 5.8 million passengers to the city this year, and more than nine million to Catalunya, where it employs about 5,800 people.

O’Leary said the closure of Spanair was “an inevitable tragedy” because of the airline’s high management costs, and invited its former employees to apply for jobs with his airline. The Ryanair chief, when asked whether the Government had been in contact with his airline to mediate the recruitment of workers, said: “The Catalan government has already intervened in the management of Spanair, and we all know the outcome.”

He also stressed: “Ryanair is a private company and nobody needs to interfere in its running." O’Leary said he could not specify how many Spanair employees he could take on, but suggested his company needed more staff in Girona, Barcelona and Palma airport in Mallorca. But it reeked of another mickey-take for the dejected workers who, understandably, rejected his offer on two counts: they would be taxed on

their earnings in Ireland, and would have to open an account in Gibraltar to collect their wages. Ricardo Oso, President of the Spanair workers committee, says they would rather try to get work with AENA, the Spanish Airports Authority, or to be relocated at Barcelona Airport. A sarcastic O’Leary then thanked the group for their protest as he departed, saying it had given his company extra publicity.

Simpsons bids to find ultimate couch potato

THIS has to be my favourite story of the week. The TV series, The Simpsons, aired on Channel 4, is looking for the ultimate couch potato of the US. The Simpsons is celebrating its 500th episode with the contest. One hundred fans of the cartoon comedy are taking part in The Simpsons 500 Ultimate Fan Marathon Challenge in Hollywood. Episodes are being played back-to-back in an effort to set a new Guinness World Record for longest continuous television-watching. It will take around 200 hours to watch all 500 episodes. After 23 seasons on television, a historic first, The Simpsons has earned its place in pop culture history. “It is an extraordinary milestone, I’m so pleased and proud to be on a show that, it really has become such a part of the fabric of American culture, who can say that?” said actress Yeardley Smith, who voices the character of Lisa Simpson, at the event. “It seems like it was just yesterday when I went in to audition for the part of Lisa Simpson, you know, and ended up saying ‘I don’t want to do that, I would much rather be a ten year old boy, a school-hating underachiever and proud of it,’” Nancy Cartwright said, partially performing as her character, Bart Simpson. “Time is so funny that way. Here we are, 500 episodes in, and wow!” she added. The winner of the couch

Games champion sails into San Miguel again ENGLAND’S Paul Goodison, an Olympic sailing gold medallist from 2008 and ranked world No1 in the Laser class, is favourite to collect again in London this summer.

The five-time European champion, who trained here last November, enjoyed the conditions so much that he’s back on the Island for another spell of racing. He will be facing Tenerife champion Javier Hernandes, ranked world No6, and a consistent top-10 finisher in the past year. Other rivals from Germany, Sweden and Guatemala will also be sailing against each from the San Miguel Marina as the summer Games draw nearer. The all-star group have been invited here by the Spanish Sailing Federation, in conjunction with Tenerife Cabildo’s Cidemat, in Candelaria. Hernandes, from the Real Club Nautico de Tenerife (RCNT) in Santa Cruz, has had a superb build-up to the London Olympics, topping it off by qualifying for the laser event in the ISAF World Championships in Perth two months ago,

Sparkling report ADEJE City Council is congratulated by the Canary Islands Government for its hygeine practice in water control.

The regional government also recognised its excellent work in monitoring the sanitary conditions of food service establishments. The Council recently received recognition in a letter to Mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, saying: “For the work carried out both with the analysis of consumer tap water and the follow-up studies of hygienic conditions of health facilities within establishments.” Also, the regional government commented on the effectiveness of the Guide to good hygiene practice,

prepared by the health technicians of Adeje Council. In the letter, the Canary Islands Government urges the Council to “be sure to provide the necessary services in a tourist town to guarantee a high protection of the health of its citizens and visitors.” Councillor for Health, José María Álvarez Acosta, said that “the development of control and surveillance program of drinking have contributed decisively to Adeje having a supply of drinking water of an excellent quality in Tenerife “The Municipal Laboratory has carried out tests since 2007 as established in the regulations. In 2011 351 tests were made based on supply networks (volume of water and population served). Samples were taken in most cases inside private homes.

Controlling of water quality includes the section of bathing areas, which was conducted during the summer when up to 75 analytical tests were made on beaches such as as La Caleta, El Pinque, El Puertito, El Varadero, La Enramada, Las Galgas, Las Salinas and Ajabo. The Department of Health for Adeje is also responsible for auditing health information in catering establishments, a work for which the Canary Islands Government has been congratulated. In 2011 the City Council conducted 210 audits of restaurants and bars in the municipality which was duly informed of the results and corrective action was taken through the Guide to Health Correction. “This measure” Acosta Alvarez explains, “is performed to improve the health of catering establishments

in order to prevent health risks in preparation and food processing. The positive results of these audits, are helping to reduce the risk of food borne illness. “ The City is watching and protecting the health of citizens of the town also in regard to control of facilities that are at risk of legionnaire’s disease. In this regard, in recent years have conducted audits at 40 hotels to verify the presence or absence of the disease. “We also encourage the training of technical staff in the maintenance of facilities at risk through courses,” explained the Councillor. Acosta Alvarez said that “Adeje has the largest number of qualified personnel holding cards issued by the Canary Islands Health Service.”

Cabildo President receives the highest French honour PRESIDENT of the Cabildo, Ricardo Melchior, has received the highest honour of the French National Order of Merit in the category of “Commander” (Commanderu de l’Ordre National du Mérite). It was awarded by the French President Nicolas Sarkozy last May 18th because of his continued collaboration in commercial, political, social and technological issues as well as for his constant willingness to help develop the French population of Africa. Ricardo Melchior already has this same distinction in the category of “Knight.” The event, chaired by the French ambassador Bruno Delaye, was attended by more than one hundred guests, including representatives of various political forces of the governments of Russia, Senegal, Denmark, Ireland, Monaco, Morocco, Germany and personalities in the business. Ricardo Melchior thanked them all for “such a high distinction” and said his actions were within the performance of his duties as president of the Cabildo, rather than personal merit. “I consider it in recognition and impetus to the relationships that bind our people and that have been consolidated over time,” he added. As reviewed in his speech, these relationships between France and Tenerife, are not limited to trade relations but cultural exchange, politics, social co-operation and technological development.

In this sense, Ricardo Melchior, referred to the Technological Institute of Renewable Energy and the Cabildo (ITER) and the development of projects in various regions of France, and the implementation of new guided transport systems on the island, such as the tram with technological application of French companies like Alstom, Semaly and Trnasdev. The president did not forget the exchange of experiences for the development of the wines of the island, and the ongoing collaboration in the development of connectivity projects, through the consortium that manages the cable ACE (Africa Coast Europe) and linking France with Africa via Tenerife, the only part of Spain where this new infrastructure will scale to 18,000 kilometers via 21 countries. “Its high strategic importance for Africa’s development said Melchior, has been underlined by President Sarkozy, as revealed in the last French African Summit, considering their high value for connectivity and recognizing its momentum

10 February - 16 February 2012

on telecommunications as an engine of social, educational and commercial growth.” The president of the council highlighted training as an important pillar for a different future. “I have to stress how honoured I am to have been part of the implementation in Tenerife of the Lyceum Jules Verne in the French Lay Mission. This is a valuable initiative, as is our University of La Laguna, in providing the Estudios Francófonos Aplicados degree, aimed at training specialists in relationships with Africa. Melchior concluded his speech saying we can not pass up the opportunity provided by the proximity of Africa and countries in the developing world. “Our location in the Atlantic and the progress made in recent decades make Tenerife an ideal platform for the African continent. And if we join forces with Europe, Africa and America all the better to form a nexus of trade and business to facilitate the development of French-speaking Africa, favoured by the unstoppable phenomenon of

globalization, the U.S. need to reorient its economy towards the outside and the huge potential of countries that make up the whole area of the neighbouring continent.” The French ambassador in Spain, Bruno Delaye, recognized the personal and professional career of Ricardo Melchior saying he was “very active on all fronts: boosting employment, development of scientific research and renewable energy, protection

of natural areas, the introduction of the tram and more.” For Delaye, President of the Council Melchior “has always shown an interest receptive and affectionate during the visits of ministers and other French authorities, particularly during political exchanges between remote regions.” In his speech he thanked for “the interest shown towards France and its humanity” In this moving ceremony,

President Melchior took the opportunity to invite the President of the Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy, to Tenerife and to personally explain all the details of connectivity projects and others that are also currently working on the City Council. The National Order of Merit is a State Order granted by the President of the French Republic. It was founded on December 3rd 1963 by President Charles de Gaulle.

Canarians keeping boat people at bay A TOTAL of 340 illegal immigrants came to the Canaries last year, which was an increase of 144 compared with 2010, when 196 “boat people” arrived.

On mainland Spain, 5,443 illegals sailed in via “cayucos”, which was a near-50%

increase on the previous year. Yet the immigration authorities have clamped down on the invaders drastically since 2006, when 39,180 illegals arrived by sea. Another big plus last year saw 30,792 people repatriated to their countries of origin from Spain, and of this number, 11,092 were prevented from crossing the Spanish border at ports and airports, which was a healthy improvement of 17.3% over 2010.

EU’s helping hand to resolve olive oil crisis THE European Commission will agree to the storage of 100,000 tons of Spanish olive oil for five months, to push up the price.

With that amount taken from the market place, prices will then be controlled and the industry may get a chance to recover from the deep crisis it is in. A similar amount was stored last November but only 45,000 tons has been

released since then from co-operatives and some industrial groups. Prices per kilo have been extremely low over the past year, with a lower product quality and an average 1.55 euros per kilo for normal, and less than two euros for virgin extra. Financial aid from the EU of between 80 cents and a euro served to solve the problem only partially, so producers are turning to storing the oil to enhance the price. Last season produced 1.4 million tons of olive oil - a total which should be overtaken this year.

Spain brain drain as youngsters are flocking abroad to find work A HUGE brain drain is taking place throughout Spain as youngsters spread their wings in search of jobs.

Tickets are on sale from Thursday (16th Feb) and the 50-date tour will be preceded by the release of her new album, MDNA, next month.

Unemployment among youth is double the European average, at almost 50%, and what began a few years back as a minor brain drain has now developed into a fully-blown exodus of young, frustrated talent. Yet it has led to a boom in language schools across Spain

as these hungry youngsters are eager to learn the relevant languages, especially English. The average emigrant is aged 25 or under, university educated and with no family ties. And many of them were among the 300,000 Spaniards who emigrated. In all, some 507,740 people left the country, against the 417,523 who came in. Most youngsters are prepared to take “anything available” according to employment agencies helping to place them. The most

popular destinations are Germany and France, but the emerging economies in Eastern Europe are growing in popularity. Germany is looking for engineers, while France needs physiotherapists and nurses, and the UK is also short of nursing staff. Poland is a popular destination for anyone with technical skills, and there’s a shortage of doctors inNorway. Joaquín Nieto, director general of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) says young people are facing an

“uncertain future” because of the economic crisis. He adds: “It’s too early to start talking about a lost generation, but the possibility does exist. But in today’s economic context, the possibility of finding work overseas gives young people some light at the end of the tunnel.” *A recent report shows that just over 50% of workers in the Canary Islands earn less than 1,000 euros per month, while Spain’s national average is 43.51%.

Pearce to manage next England match STUART PEARCE will take over the England manager’s role for the next international against Holland. FA bosses have been speaking for the first time since England manager Fabio Capello quit following a row over stripping John Terry of the captaincy. Chairman David Bernstein said about Pearce: “He knows the players very well. “He just said if you would like me to do it, I would like to do it.” Following the match on February 29 the FA will focus on “getting the best person in place as soon as we possibly can”, the chairman added. “I’m not going to go into discussions on individuals,” he said. “We will do this as quickly and sensibly as we can but don’t want to rush the process. We want to do it properly, do it professionally. “We will put a shortlist together of key people. We

will do it as soon as we can. It will be a major priority for us.” Mr Bernstein also would not rule out the possibility of England looking to an overseas coach to replace Capello. “No, he will not definitely be English,” Bernstein said. “Clearly there is a preference for an English or British person, but in the end we want the best person.” And on the resignation of Capello, which followed a meeting at Wembley on Wednesday, Mr Bernstein said: “I think that long-term the things that we’ve done will be very much in the interests of the England team.” The manager, 65, who earlier this week publicly

condemned the FA’s decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy, resigned with immediate effect. Spurs manager Harry Redknapp - having been cleared by a jury of tax evasion on the very same day as Capello’s resignation - is the favourite to take on the job. The Spurs boss said when questioned about the vacant post said: “I’ve not even thought about it. “I’ve got a job to do. We’ve got a big game Saturday with Tottenham. “Tottenham is my focus.” When asked about Capello quitting, he added: “I was shocked. I didn’t expect that to happen. “We knew he was going to

leave in the summer but we didn’t expect that to happen now.” A statement from Fabio Capello, issued by his son, said: “I would like to thank all players, staff and the Football Association for the professionalism they have shown during my years as manager of the English National Team. “A very special thanks to all the supporters: they’ve always supported the team and me in our job. I wish all of them every success in achieving all their sport goals.” However Sport Minister Hugh Robertson said he was “delighted” the FA had agreed with Capello that he should no longer be manager. Speaking at Culture, Media and Sport Questions in the Commons, Mr Robertson said: “I think it is a very great shame Fabio Capello has acted in the way he has. “If a player in his team had behaved in the way he has behaved to the FA, he would have taken the toughest possible action.”

Bank of England to make a £50bn injection of cash The Bank of England has announced that it will extend its quantitative easing (QE) programme by £50bn in a bid to stave off a double-dip recession. The multi-billion pound emergency support for the UK economy takes the total asset purchases (also known as QE) from £275bn to £325bn. The decision by the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) for another cash injection had been widely anticipated following negative growth during the final quarter of 2011. Two quarters of negative GDP would plunge the UK back into recession. While other data had indicated that the UK’s financial health was starting to improve, the MPC chose to take fresh action at its February meeting, despite the risk it poses to the rate of inflation. The BoE policymakers also announced at noon on Thursday that they would keep the base interest rate at its record low of 0.5%.

Speaking ahead of the announcement, RBS UK economist Ross Walker said: “The BoE’s policy reaction function continues to betray a downside/activist bias: if in doubt, loosen policy. “In the event that any further easing proved to have been the wrong move, the Bank could easily rectify this.” James Daley, editor of Which? Money, said the base interest rate was unlikely to be moved until 2013 at the earliest. The additional QE was welcomed by business leaders. David Kern, chief economist at the British Chambers of Commerce, said: “Although the benefits are not immediately obvious to the business community, quantitative easing plays a key role in strengthening the financial system and stabilising the wider economy. In the face of difficult domestic circumstances and the ongoing crisis in the eurozone, the decision was a sensible one.”

World News PRINCE HARRY is expected to be operating alongside British and American Special Forces troops targeting Taliban commanders and bomb-makers during a combat tour flying Apache helicopters in Helmand later this year. The Prince was a prizewinning student among a course of 20 on the ‘Conversion to Role’ training, which teaches pilots how to use the weapons on the Apache helicopter gunship. Colonel Neale Moss, Commander of the Attack Helicopter Force at Wattisham Station, said: “The Apache course is extremely challenging, teaching and testing students in their flying skills, decision making and mental agility on exercise all over the country and abroad. “They are assessed continually to ensure that they are up to the challenge of operating one of the most sophisticated attack helicopters in the world.” Captain Wales will now spend several months based in Wattisham, Suffolk,

Page 14

continuing to train with his squadron, learning to fly with different crew members and building up his hours in the sky. Most of his combat tour to Afghanistan will be spent providing close air support to infantry and escorting Chinook helicopters carrying soldiers and supplies around the province.

The threat to the Prince will be the same as it is for other pilots. So far there have been few incidents of the use of surface-to-air missiles, which are the biggest potential danger. The Taliban have shot down other aircraft with heavy machine guns or rocketpropelled grenades. British Apache pilots avoid most

threats by flying high and out of the range of most insurgent weapons. When he is finally sent to Afghanistan the Prince’s most controversial task, shared with the rest of his squadron and all Apache crews in Helmand, will be to support small Special Forces squads of soldiers on top secret missions to kill and capture Taliban leaders. “Working alongside Special Forces is a normal part of an operational deployment in Helmand for all Apache crews. They are an integral part of many operations of that sort,” a senior officer told Sky News. Apache aircraft, armed with thermobaric Hellfire missiles, which are designed to collapse buildings, and 30mm cannon, have been in the forefront of attacks on the “middle management” of insurgent groups. In 2010, the Special Air Service was reported to be killing on an “industrial scale”.

That has since eased off, Sky sources say, but they continue to be targeted. The Apache’s thermal imaging and night sights, as well as its phenomenal firepower, have been put to ruthless use gunning down “squirters” - insurgents trying to escape from Special Forces sweeps and known bombmakers. When Captain Wales is sent to Helmand he will often fly for four to five hours a day, sometimes more, directed by Forward Air Controllers, a job he did on his last tour of Afghanistan. The FACs, now known as Joint Terminal Attack Controllers, are responsible for directing helicopter and jet aircraft on to targets from the ground. They have been an invaluable asset in offensive and defensive operations against insurgents, often tipping the balance in favour of outnumbered British troops.

Sources close to Prince Harry said that his family, notably his father Prince Charles, had been “uncomfortable” with the idea that as an Apache pilot he would be flying missions on which there was a certainty that he would be required to take human life. But he has insisted that he wanted to take a combat role and is understood to have said to his father that, as a Forward Air Controller in Helmand in 2007, he had ordered aircraft to bomb Taliban positions and was therefore already responsible for causing casualties. Military insiders said that he was an “extremely able pilot” who was likely to command an aircraft from the front seat, which would also put him in charge of the Apache weapons systems. “He is quick and bright. He shoots well, he rides well, he can fly and he’s not afraid of taking decisions,” one senior officer said.

Record orders boost Rolls-Royce profits UK engine maker Rolls-Royce has posted a 21% rise in pre-tax profits, driven by record orders.

The aerospace engineering company made over £1.16bn in 2011 and said it expects to deliver further growth in 2012. Its order book grew to a record £62.2bn, up 5%, helped by significant orders from airlines including Singapore and Emirates. It is the first time RollsRoyce, which also builds propulsion systems for British navy nuclear submarines, has reported an annual profit in excess of £1bn. The 2011 earnings figure compared with profit after tax of £539m in 2010. The rise was helped by the acquisition of German engine maker Tognum and the £950m sale of its stake in International Aero Engines. New Rolls-Royce chief executive John Rishton, who succeeded Sir John

TV Chef’s River Cottage burns down in blaze

Rose in April 2011, welcomed the good start to his tenure. Mr Rishton said: “Rolls-Royce performed well in 2011, and at the year-end had a record order book, record

underlying revenue and record underlying profit.” He added: “”For 2012 we expect good growth in both underlying revenue and underlying profit with cash flow around breakeven as we

continue to invest in future growth.” In 2010, Rolls-Royce took a hit of £56m because of safety issues with the Trent 900 engine used to power the Airbus A380 superjumbo.

The blaze within the cookery school kitchens took several hours to bring under control and the cause is unknown. A spokesman for River Cottage said: “Thankfully no people or animals were hurt. “The River Cottage Team are dealing with the damage

today and are shocked and upset. “Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is away on a long distance trip filming and will be informed as soon as he can be contacted. “The River Cottage Team would like to say a big thankyou to the fire brigade who were on the scene quickly and worked hard to contain the fire.” The River Cottage canteen and deli at Axminster is unaffected and open, staff say, but the cookery school courses at Park Farm will not be running in the short term.

Lagerfield’s Walt Disney’s profits are comments boosted by theme parks not popular

THE HEAD of fashion house Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, has branded pop icon Adele “a little too fat.” The German designer let his controversial opinions known during an interview in which he also declared Russian men “ugly” and the Royal Family “unnecessary”. Speaking to the Metro New York newspaper, which he was guest-editing for the day, he said: “The thing at the moment is Adele. “She is a little too fat, but she has a beautiful face and a divine voice.” Fans of the 23-year-old star have taken to networking site Twitter offering support following the comments. American PR guru Kelly

Page 16

Cutrone hit out at Lagerfeld, writing: “If you love Adele then boycott Chanel - Boo Karl”. A fan tweeted: “A little too fat for what? Too fat to become a global phenomenon, or too fat to be a talentless clothes horse? This bloke seems like an idiot.” He was slightly more complimentary about US singer Lana del Rey who he said was “not bad at all”. Asked about Russia, the man known as King Karl said: “If I was a woman in Russia I would be a lesbian, as the men are very ugly.” Lagerfeld - who once said of Diana, Princess of Wales, “she was pretty and she was sweet, but she was stupid” also took aim at the Queen who he described as “a more smiley version” of her grandmother.

WALT DISNEY’S profits have risen following an increase in theme park visits, but film revenue at the American icon has fallen.

Disney has reported growth in fourth quarter profits of 12%, taking the total

to £0.91bn. Its theme parks helped drive the increase, with the results boosted by higher ticket prices and the opening of Toy Story Land at Hong Kong Disneyland in November last year. Other Disney theme parks also benefited from a splurge in consumer spending, seeing rising attendance. The firm’s television

businesses also performed solidly, with cable and satellite distributors paying more to carry its ESPN sports programming. TV channels and theme parks accounted for 77% of Disney’s operating income last year and 60% of sales. The company’s chief executive Bob Iger said: “There’s real demand there so I’d say the advertising

marketplace is healthy.’’ But revenue in Disney’s film business fell, despite the successful release of the Muppets movie in the US. Meanwhile, another US superbrand, Coca-Cola, reported better-thanexpected quarterly results on Tuesday. It made profits of just over £1bn, with revenues and market share both rising.

Gamer dies - but no-one notices

A TAIWANESE man who died while playing video games at an internet cafe was left for hours after fellow gamers failed to notice his death. The body of Chen Rongyu, 23, was found slumped in a chair at a cafe in New Taipei city on Tuesday night, according to local reports. He was rigid on a chair with his hands stretched out towards the keyboard and mouse, police said. He had been playing League of Legends. Mr Chen’s body had apparently been sitting there for up to nine hours without any of the 30 other people in the cafe noticing. He was last seen by a

waitress talking on the phone around noon on Wednesday. An initial police investigation found he might have died of a cardiac arrest triggered by low temperatures. The man’s family said he had been treated for a heart problem in September of last year. Police are still looking into the cause of the death. They say they suspect that a combination of tiredness, lack of movement and the cold weather could have caused blood clots and a heart attack.

Do think long and hard before you adopt a dog GRANADILLA-BASED Accion del Sol has issued the following request for people thinking about adopting stray dogs to consider the various aspects of taking them home. “Please remember that an animal from a shelter or refuge has usually had a hard life already, and requires time to settle into its new environment. “The dog also has to learn to trust its new owners, so an abundance of patience, love and care is definitely required. Consider also: *Do all the family members want a pet, especially if it is allowed in the house? *Who will take care of the animal? *Who will prepare the food and provide water, walk the dog at least twice a day in all

weathers, and be responsible for regular maintenance and grooming, etc? *Will dog hairs and the occasional “accident” on the carpet or furniture be accepted as the norm? What about the costs involved? a) Food b) Veterinary fees c) Monthly flea and heartworm control d) Liability insurance e) Possible accommodation

in kennels while you’re on holiday Remember, a dog can live for many years and, as long as it lives, will need daily care and attention. Like humans, a dog has feelings, and something you can quickly get rid of, or discard when you get fed up with it! Having a dog or another pet is a big responsibility, both personally and financially. In return, however, the dog

will thank you unconditionally, love you forever and bring a lot of joy and support into your lives. Please think long and hard before taking one on. If you feel that you would like to adopt one of Accion del Sol’s many abandoned dogs, please visit the refuge, from Monday-Friday (3-6pm) or call 922 778 630 for more information. The refuge is situated at the Granadilla Industrial Estate, just off Exit 51 on the TF1,

directly next to the Parque Eolica, by the windmills. Maybe if this is too big a commitment, but you would like to help Accion del Sol, staff are always looking for people to walk the dogs to the nearby beach and

surrounding countryside. They always welcome a bit of TLC and a nice walk. Accion’s next Puppies and Pony Club will be on 25th February (10am-12.30pm). Call 922 778 630 or 687 905 511 for more details.

Dine out and make some new friends THE new Diners Club run by Nancy Hall in Los Cristianos, welcomed four new members on Saturday night, and the future is looking promising.

But Nancy Hall, who holds the wine-and-dine events at the Castañuelas restaurant, is switching to Friday nights for an experiment from tonight. “It went well on Saturday, with a good number able

to have a conversation with everyone.,” she said. “The newcomers loved the company, the restaurant and food, and they say they are definitely coming again. Two of them live here and the other two were on holiday.” Nancy added: “The age group of the Diners Club seems to be in the 50s, 60s and 70s, and I am still very optimistic it will succeed - and that we will eventually take over the whole restaurant! “Miguel, the restaurant manager, gave us all a welcome glass of bubbly when we arrived, and included water and coffee in with the three-course meal for 10.50 euros. Brilliant!. Included in the price is a half-bottle of wine for everyone, and Nancy can provide further details of the club on 655 679 033. It’s a good place to make new friends,” she said.

Valentine’s bash is all the fashion ANIMAL refuge K9 are holding a St Valentine’s Day fund-raiser on Tuesday at the Monaco Restaurant, Puerto Colon Promenade.

There’s live music from Pete & Laura, as well as dancing and a fashion parade, plus a bottle tombola and raffle, with book, craft and secondhand clothes stalls. Have a meal or just a drink, but come along and support K9 - and don’t forget to bring a treat for the cats and dogs at the kennels. The show begins at 7pm and you can get further info from Sue on 673 863 486.

It is the first-ever Six Nations match at the Stadio Olimpico, where Italy will play their home games while the Stadio Flaminio undergoes refurbishment. The Azzurri will be hoping to pick up where they left off in Rome last March, having pulled off one of the biggest shocks in the competition's history with a thrilling 22-21 win over France in their most recent Six Nations home game. But England have never lost to Italy, and were 59-13 winners when the teams met at Twickenham last year, a match in which wing Chris Ashton bagged an historic four tries. Gabby is joined by Jeremy Guscott, while match commentary comes from Alastair Eykin and Lawrence Dallaglio.

Six Nations Rugby Union France v Ireland BBC2, 19:30

John Inverdale hosts live Six Nations coverage from Paris as France take on Ireland. Declan Kidney's side scored three tries to France's one when the sides met at the Aviva Stadium in 2011 but still ended up losing the match. Ireland do not have a good record in Paris, beating the French there just once in the past 40 years. That famous victory came in 2000, when Brian O'Driscoll scored a hat-trick of tries - the Irish captain has been ruled out of this year's Six Nations after having shoulder surgery but the visitors are still hopeful of landing a rare victory in the French capital. Commentary comes from Eddie Butler and Brian Moore.

Six Nations Rugby Union Wales v Scotland BBC1, 14:30 Jason Mohammad hosts live coverage of the final match of this weekend's round of Six Nations games, which sees Wales take on Scotland at the Millennium Stadium. Wales have won seven of their last eight Six Nations meetings with Scotland, including beating them 24-6 at Murrayfield last season, and their performance at last year's World Cup in New Zealand makes them favourites to extend that run. But the Scots will be determined to make amends for their last visit to Cardiff, where they led by 10 points with just minutes remaining, only to concede two late tries and leave the Millennium Stadium on the wrong end of a31-24 score line. Commentary comes from Andrew Cotter and Jonathan Davies, while studio guests include Wales' record try-scorer Shane Williams, who brought down the curtain on his glittering career at the end of 2011.

At Loy Mandeh village, the engineers are busy clearing IEDs from the old bazaar. It is slow painstaking work, but once again dog power is being used to detect the deadly bombs. Chris Terrill’s coverage of active service in Afghanistan continues, with the focus turning to the dogs. The men of L Company risk getting blown up every day by IEDs (improvised explosive devices). The area they patrol is riddled with them and four marines have been killed in less than three months. So four-year-old springer spaniel Memphis is brought in to help. With his super-sensitive nose Memphis has a knack of sniffing out IEDs and should save a lot of lives and limbs. Meanwhile, a mile to the north, the Royal Engineers are still busy clearing IEDs from the old bazaar at the village Loy Mandeh. It is slow, painstaking work but once again dog power is being used to detect the deadly bombs. Unlike Memphis, however, Vidar suffers from a terrible fear of loud bangs. Luke Outhwaite, his handler, has to comfort the Belgian shepherd dog every time an IED is detonated.

As HM the Queen approaches her Diamond Jubilee, Andrew Marr tells the story of her life. In the second of three programmes, he assesses her moves to modernise the monarchy, from the abolition of the presentation of debutantes in 1958 to the very modern wedding of William and Catherine last year. Princes William and Harry are on hand to talk about their grandmother's influence on the wedding day, from the guest list to the choice of uniforms. Andrew also looks back at the challenges faced by the monarchy in the 'annus horribilis' of 1992, follows the Queen on her ground breaking visit to the Republic of Ireland last May, and looks back on the happy times she spent on the Royal Yacht Britannia and the sadness she so visibly exhibited when it was decommissioned in 1997. Peter and Zara Phillips talk about family holidays on the yacht and Tony Blair speaks of the difficult decision he took to scrap it when he came to power in 1997.

Series highlighting the potential of empty properties. When Martin and Rebecca Kay spotted an empty former pub in the Buckinghamshire village of Tingewick, they decided to risk buying it. The Kays have had their offer on the property accepted and plan to renovate it within a strict budget. But it is going to need a lot of work doing to it to turn it into a cosy home, and on a tight budget it will not be easy. Experienced renovator Jules Hudson advises Rebecca and Martin on the best way to tackle the transformation, which in their case would be to carry out the work in phases. To give Rebecca and Martin a good idea of how these types of renovations can work, he introduces them to some homeowners who are successfully tackling their own builds in this way, including a 15th century manor with its adjacent coach house.

UEFA Champions League Ac Milan v Arsenal ITV1, 19:30 Adrian Chiles is joined by Roy Keane and Gareth Southgate for tonight's big Champions League tie between AC Milan and Arsenal live from the San Siro. The tournament has reached the knockout stages and Arsene Wenger's team face a tough test in this round of 16 first-leg tie against the Italian champions. Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic will pose a particular threat to the Gunners' defence. Arsenal may take comfort from the fact that their London rivals Tottenham knocked out AC Milan at this stage of the competition last year - a feat Robin van Persie and co will be expected to match. Match commentary by Clive Tyldesley and AndyTownsend.

Daddy Daycare Channel 4, 20:00 British women do twice as much childcare as men, and nearly half of all mothers feel that their partners don't do their fair share. The nation's mums have had enough. In this brand new three-part documentary series, nine men are sent on a crash course in childcare by their long-suffering wives and partners. Sent to work in three busy London nurseries, for the first time in their lives they'll tackle every aspect of childcare under the watchful eyes of the nursery staff. Can throwing them in at the deep end teach these dads to be better fathers and give their kids the loving, positive male role models they need? In the first episode workaholic father-of-three Garry, reluctant dad-of-one Jay and nervous father-to-be Stefan spend a week working at South London nursery Magic Roundabout, staffed entirely by single mums.

Hugh experiences the full force of the Atlantic as he leaps from a sharp granite clifftop into a lashing sea - his first taste of coasteering. He also attempts to land on Britain's scariest helipad - at the top of a lighthouse, which regularly gets punched out by the power of the sea. Back on land, he attempts to build a hedge that isn't actually a hedge, and retraces the steps of King Arthur at the weirdlyshaped Tintagel Castle.

Favourite Our Nuevo beginnings… caterpillar SUE MCDONALD Common Sense Furnishings

Email: sue.mcdonald@canarianweekly.com

A REPORT commissioned by the Early Learning Centre has found that after eating his way through fruit, cake and sausages for more than 40 years ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ is the most favourite and widely read children’s book.

WE have finally moved into our new premises at Parque Margarita, next to the old Travel Shop. They are considerably smaller than the other shop, and will be more like an office. But we have been really touched by all the people wishing us luck with our move. And our thanks to the culinary support, in the form of soups and curries, brought to our door by Steesh and Anne clients who have become friends. Talking of luck, I was just saying to a friend that you couldn’t swing a cat in the new shop, when what should walk through the door but a black cat! I’m hoping that’s a good omen, although maybe not so much for the cat. We have also decided to change our working hours. Most of our sales on the premises are done in the mornings, so we have decided to adopt “banking hours” of 9am-2.30pm although, obviously, taking a lot less money than the bankers do.. I always wanted to work in a bank because they finish in the early afternoon. It was much later that I realised that they just close the doors and then do all the admin work until 5pm or later! But for us, this means we will be free to pop round to clients in the afternoons, measuring properties and

Researchers estimate Eric Carle’s 1969 tale about a caterpillar that becomes a butterfly is read on average nine times a year by the nation’s 5.5million primary school children. visiting wholesalers. There will obviously be days when we will work on at our premises until 5pm, and we will always available for pre-arranged afternoon appointments. Although the new premises are indeed smaller, we are still able to display a number of items such as Venetian, Roman and Japanese blinds, curtains and materials. We will continue to offer exactly the same services as before, including sofas and sofa beds, beds and mattresses, all types and models of furniture, lights and fans. We will also be working more with refurbishments and re-upholstery for those on a limited budget. We are able to offer a re-lacquering

service for furniture of good quality, and can also reupholster existing sofas to achieve your ideas, while keeping the cost to a minimal level. We are also happy to offer a free interior design service to assist people in making the most of their properties, which may just involve a new pair of curtains and a few cushions and pictures. So we have settled in to our new premises, and it’s business as usual. To all our existing clients, please feel free to call in and say Hello so that we know that you know where we are. And by the way, I was wrong. You can swing a cat in here. Those minor bruises will soon heal!

‘Reading boosts children’s development, teaches them new words and helps them discover and learn about the world.’ The third most read books were Roger Hargreaves’ Mr Men series followed by the Peppa Pig books based on the Channel 5 TV show and John Cunliffe’s Postman Pat adventures. Parents and children read about Postman Pat’s adventures an average of 7.5 times a year while The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson’s animated modern fantasy about a fictitious monster who lurks in the woods, is likely to be read at least seven times a year. The poll also found 12 per cent of parents said their offspring liked reading books based on films or TV shows.

HomeServe plan job cuts

THE HOME repair and insurance firm HomeServe has announced it is planning to cut 200 jobs in the UK as it continues to lose customers.

HomeServe said total customer numbers in 2012 could fall by 8%, down from its previous estimate of 5%. This would mean renewal revenue in 2013 would be around £10m lower.

Page 38

The second most popular book is the Cinderella fairytale, read around 8.7 times a year, according to the poll of 2,000 parents. Nicki Tracey, Head of Brand Communications for the Early Learning Centre said: ‘A huge amount of parents are familiar with the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and it’s a book that has obviously been passed down through the generations. ‘It’s great to see so many books on this list that parents have obviously enjoyed themselves as children and as a result encouraged their own children to read and love as well. ‘It’s especially good to see that so many parents and children enjoy reading these stories that they re-read the same books over and over.

Adjusted pre-tax profit for the year ending on March 31 this year, however, was expected to be in line with market expectations. HomeServe had to suspend sales in October for a review of thousands of customer complaints about its sales procedures. It was also forced to retrain its call-centre staff after mis-selling practices in the UK. The company said that as a result it now has fewer UK customers, but it insisted

that retention remains strong. The firm added that a prolonged marketing delay would hit customer numbers harder than previously expected. The cost of the restructuring that HomeServe had to do, which also includes outsourcing its customer complaints division to a third party, would now cost about £20m this year. This compared to the £10m it estimated in November last year.

Patio time THEY say that it is possible to grow vegetables in containers either in a corner of your garden, a corner of your patio if you have on, or on a window sill should you live in an apartment.

Botanic gardens rise from ashes of Cornish tin mine FIVE new botanic gardens are being created as part of an ambitious multi-million pound project to revive a former tin mine near Redruth in Cornwall. The Grade II listed Robinson’s Shaft was one of the last working tin mines until its closure in 1996. Now a £22.3 million grant from the Big Lottery alongside funds from the Homes and

JUST a small selection of money saving ideas

•Check with your local garden centre, veg/fruit shop for discarded planting trays, used disposable pots, etc. - recycle them by using them in your own gardening efforts! •When you buy produce in little baskets (like berries, cherry tomatoes, etc.), save the baskets & use them for organizing around the house or garden, or even for seed starting planters. •Grow your own plant

Communities Agency, the European Union and Cornwall County Council have brought about the transformation of the 7.5 hectare (19 acre) site, creating a major visitor attraction to be known as Heartlands with the Diaspora Botanical Gardens as one of the main features. The gardens are intended as ‘an area of horticultural excellence’ and celebrate the rich history of Cornish gardening through the story of the hundreds of thousands of emigrants who left the county during a mass exodus in the 19th

century in search of work as the tin mining industry declined. Visitors move between five areas of the world where the emigrants settled: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, North America and South America. The plants the Cornish took with them are part of the gardens as well as the new plants they brought back. Described as ‘varied and lush’, planting ranges from subtropical Australian tree ferns such as Norfolk Island tree fern Cyathea brownii to South American palms such as Butia capitata,

and North American conifers including giant redwood Sequoiadendron giganteum. Each garden is designed to reflect the character of the area it represents: so the Australian Garden is loosely based on an Aboriginal dot painting while New Zealand uses traditional Maori design forms. The gardens will also include an art installation by Cardiff-based artist David Mackie, Seams and Veins, with Cornish granite boulders inlaid with bronze patterns, words and symbols.

placing a flat stone (or concrete) beneath the fruit. •Water your seedlings less with a homemade irrigation system. Simply stretch out a layer of plastic (like a plastic bin bag) and place layers of newspaper on top. Then set your seedling pots on top. Excess water seeps out of the pots into the newspaper, going no further than the plastic. As the soil dries, the moisture is whisked back

up into the planters. When done, reuse the newspapers in your compost pile or worm farm. •Recycle egg cartons as seedling starters! When its time to plant, just separate the sections with a knife or scissors and plant directly into the soil. (The cardboard will decompose into your garden.) •The little paper cups also can be used as seed starting pots.

What Kind of Vegetables Can I Grow? You can grow a variety of vegetables as many of them have what are referred to as ‘mini varieties’ which have been grown specifically in small places. Such vegetables include : Runner Beans Cherry Tomatoes Asparagus Celery Artichokes Spinach Chard What Kind of Container Can I Use? Again this is very much dependent on the amount of space you have to utilise. If you have only a window sill for example then a plastic window box (or wooden one) can be used: this will allow you to utilise the entire length of the window sill without infringing on your ability to open the windows. Kitchen Colander Colanders provide a good amount of space to begin growing your vegetables (or indeed herbs) and also their

holes are excellent for the purposes of drainage. Terracotta Pots Terracotta pots work on two levels: they are good for planting miniature vegetables or herbs in and also they provide a pleasing aesthetic to whatever space you have available to use. Terracotta pots are not, contrary to popular believe, particularly expensive so purchasing two or three may be a worth while investment for your small kitchen garden. Household Containers In this age of recycling it is worth looking at your household waste before you recycle it to see if there is anything that may well be useful to grow miniature vegetables and herbs in. Receptacles that make good growing containers include: Cooking Oil Drums (Catering size) Old Wastepaper Bins Plastic Jars Glass Jars All of these are items that at some point in time you will no longer have use for so it is worth while to look at them in a different light and perhaps use them to help further your vegetable growing needs. You should also ensure that any pots or cans you use which may have contained products containing chemical residues are thoroughly washed and rinsed before potting.

Healthy snackers nibble CARL PATTISON their way into new year from Robot, answers your hair questions

Trust me, I’m a hairdresser ARE you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin. If I were your dentist and I told you your teeth would fall out if you carried on abusing them, would you listen? If I were your doctor and cared about your health, would you ignore good advice? Dentists care for teeth; doctors care for your body and mind - HAIRDRESSERS CARE FOR YOUR HAIR! I get a little saddened by the lack of interest shown by some people over their hair, and hair care. I give out free advice 10 hours a day, and most people listen as they are interested in looking after their hair. But it’s making our job as stylists so much harder to do if you guys out there aren’t following basic hair-care rules. Once you have left the salon, we won’t be around to tell you what you should be using on your hair. Yes, we do advise you when you are in the salon, but a lot of it is common sense. The worst thing I come across is the wrongful use of shampoo and conditioner, or the lack of it. We live in Tenerife, where we experience wind, rain, baking sun, humidity and, even as

WE’VE made it a month into the 2012 resolution-season… and you have to wonder, who is still sticking to their New Year’s healthy eating resolution… and who have fallen off the wellness wagon?

According to recent Mintel research, among healthy snackers, 44% say they tend to eat healthfully most of the time and 42% make it a point to snack on foods that are healthy. At the same time, indulgence can be part of a well-rounded lifestyle, as 39% of healthy snackers say they

we speak, cold weather. So please use something to protect your hair. If you have coloured hair, then use a coloured hair shampoo and conditioner, etc. Don’t just grab any old product from the supermarket costing a few euros and slap it on, hoping for the best. I wouldn’t use those products to clean my microwave, although they would probably do the job! Your hair is a living thing and it needs care and attention. And if you aren’t going to love it, then don’t expect it to be your crowning glory. Most people over here seem to have coloured hair, and they should be using moisturising shampoo and conditioner, with a masque once a week. It’s all that is needed. It’s not rocket science, and you don’t need to spend a fortune.

Just don’t buy rubbish. Most of what you get in the supermarket is no better than bubble bath, and would you wash your hair in that? These products are full of salt and artificial ingredients like panthenol, which is similar to the gel they put in breast implants! And the salt is used to thicken the watery base to give it consistency. Do you need to know any more? I know I’m ranting, and you’d be right to think, “Oh, here he goes again”. But I’m saying it because I care, not just about my clients but hair in general. So the next time you are grabbing a bottle of washingup liquid - I mean shampoo, of course - think twice. Spend a little more - and you and your stylist will see the results. Remember, you get out only what you put in. Trust me, I’m a hairdresser!

considered healthy snacking, followed by raw vegetables (73%), and nuts/seeds (71%). However, a surprising number of people rated ice cream (12%) and cookies (9%) as healthy snacks…keep dreaming snackers! Snacks are often an impulsive purchase, and one of convenience. As a result, people are at the mercy of the food choices most available. Nearly half (46%) of respondents say it’s hard to find healthy snacks in vending machines or other on-the-go locations while 16% believe it takes more time to prepare a healthy snack than other types. “Increasing accessibility and portability can help maximize usage,” adds Molly Maier.

Sunshine can ward off your chances of developing eczema

BRITISH children living in areas with lower levels of sunlight are at greater risk of developing food allergies and eczema.

Scientists used an analysis of Australian children and how rates of food allergies, eczema and asthma varied throughout the country.

use less-healthy nibbles as an occasional treat. “Eating healthy snacks can offer many benefits to consumers, such as increased energy and feeling fuller longer, so there is a big opportunity for the makers and marketers of snacks to leverage these connections to maximize health positioning,” says Molly Maier, senior wellness analyst at Mintel. “The number of snackers who only consume healthy treats is a relatively small one, but one that shouldn’t be ignored by snack-food manufacturers.” The definition of “healthy” is very subjective, but Mintel respondents seem to have a good grasp on truly healthful foods. Fresh fruit is overwhelmingly (86%)

On average, children in south Australia were twice as likely to develop eczema as those in the north. There was also a link between latitude and allergies to peanuts and eggs. Sunlight is important because it provides the fuel to create vitamin D in the skin, which makes Australia a good place for this type of study because its vast 3,000-mile length has a large variation in climate, day length and sun strength. Dr Nick Osborne, who led

researchers at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health - a joint initiative between Plymouth and Exeter universities warned: “This investigation has further underlined the association between food allergies, eczema and where you live. “We’re now hoping to study these effects on a much finer scale. But, as always, care must be taken not to be exposed to too much sunlight, which increases the risk of skin cancer.”

The extra drink or two that could lead to mouth cancer ENJOYING two large glasses of wine or two strong pints of beer a day can triple the risk of developing mouth cancer.

Make sure doctors get blood pressure result in both arms THE next time you have your blood pressure checked in hospital or at the doctors, ask them to measure it in both arms.

If the readings for the left and right arm have markedly different top numbers, it could be a sign of vascular disease and an increased risk of death. With consequences that serious, you’d think that doctors would routinely check both arms - and they’re supposed to, according to medical guidelines. Unfortunately, most doctors don’t, say the authors of a recent study, published on Monday in The Lancet. In Britain, fewer than half of all doctors say they make a habit of measuring blood pressure in both arms, and the same is likely in the States, says Christopher Clark MD, who led the study. “Recommendations to measure both arms exist in both British and American blood-pressure management guidelines, but they are not regularly followed,” he said. Clark and his team checked the data from 28 studies,

looking at the difference in systolic blood pressure readings (the top number in blood pressure measurement) between two arms in patients. Their analysis found that a difference of as little as 15 mils of mercury between readings meant a greater risk of blocked arteries, either to the legs or to the brain. A difference in readings was also associated with a 70% higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and a 60% increased risk of death from any cause, wrote the authors.

That’s the warning from the British Government, which has launched TV adverts showing that even drinking just over the recommended daily limit for booze can open the door to serious health problems. The National Health Service recommends that men should not drink more than three to four units a day on a regular basis, while women should restrict their intake to no more than two to three. The adverts are running under the Change4Life banner, and viewers will be able to access a new online calculator to work out how much they are drinking. The Government will also print two million leaflets, which will be made available to Change4Life supporters and health professionals across England. They will point out that as well as the risk of mouth cancer, sinking six units of alcohol will double your chances of developing high blood pressure, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Drinkers will be encouraged to cut down by having alcoholfree days, not drinking at home before going out, swapping to low-or alcoholfree drinks and using smaller glasses. Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said: “It’s crucial we support people to know about how drinking too much poses health risks. “It can be easy to slip into the

habit of having a few extra drinks each day, especially when drinking at home. But there can be serious health risks.” The campaign follows a survey of more than 2,000 people, which revealed that 85% did not realise that drinking over recommended limits increased the risk of developing breast cancer. Some 65% were unaware that it increased the risk of bowel cancer, 63% didn’t know about the risk of pancreatitis going up, and 59% were unaware of the greater threats of mouth, throat and neck cancer. Sarah Lyness, of Cancer Research UK, said: “Alcohol can increase the risk of seven

types of cancer, including two of the most common - breast and bowel cancers.” A recent study showed that nearly 12,500 cancers in the UK each year were caused by alcohol. But the issue of how to tackle alcohol abuse has proved controversial. Six major health organisations last year refused to back a public

health “responsibility deal” in which alcohol retailers and producers pledged to provide clear unit labelling, back awareness campaigns and develop a new sponsorship code on responsible drinking. The health groups said the lack of sanctions indicated that the Government was allowing the drinks industry to dictate health policy.

Bianco’s hits the right spots BIANCO’S, based at the Safari Centre in Las Americas, has been the object of our reviewers’ gaze many times, and no wonder. It has never failed to tick all the right boxes, whether it’s the striking decor, the attentive knowledgeable staff or the incredible menu, so with this in mind we returned for a much-needed Italian feast. Drinks to start? Oh, go on then. And cocktail waiter Ian totally raised the bar by asking many questions about our individual tastes, whether sweet, sour or even savoury, and which spirits we preferred. He then disappeared, only to return carrying two cocktails, which were both completely different and both perfectly personalised. It was a great start to what promised to be a wonderful evening. We were then shown to our seats by Scott, our waiter, who first took our wine order and, from a varied and international menu, we selected a rich Canarian red. We then settled back to choose our food – and, with many recommendations from Scott, we made our decisions. The night was further enhanced by the lovely vocals of Sarita who, also being a flautist played at a volume that didn’t interfere with conversation. It was perfect, ambient music to relax into our starters, which arrived very quickly; firstly, beef Carpaccio - a raw tenderloin, sliced razor-thin and topped with rocket, lemon and parmesan shavings. A delicate and light entre. Then on to the clam, mussel, marinara broth, delicate and warm, packed with shellfish and covered in marinara

sauce, with a sprinkling of herbs and crunchy croutons, beautiful in flavours and

10 February - 16 February 2012

presentation. I would also like to add that home-made chilli or garlic

oil were offered, which was a nice touch from a large restaurant.

All the dishes served in Bianco’s scream out “quality and attention to detail”, and have done since they opened the second restaurant in the Safari Centre. It is still considered the flagship of the group, and the main courses proved why: Tornados of fillet steak, cooked perfectly, topped with full-flavoured, soft, creamy foie gras. And with a sweet caramelised apple and port wine sauce, this really hit the spot. In fact, I would go as far to say it was the best steak I have had in a long while. Meanwhile, opposite me the house seafood special arrived: Seafood spaghetti Negro - black spaghetti (yes black) - tossed with juicy, fresh scallops, calamari and prawns, and smothered in olive oil, garlic, fresh lemon and aromatic herbs. Judging by the lack of talking coming from that direction, it really was just what the doctor ordered. As I said before, attention to detail. Both dishes were accompanied with stir-fried fresh vegetables, rosemary potatoes and Bianco’s potatoes, which are thin-

sliced and deep-fried and delicious. Okay, normally it’s just one dessert between two, but not tonight because a strawberry mousse cake arrived, closely followed by a chocolate fondant with coconut icecream. The first, so light and fluffy, just melted in the mouth and, with a crisp, crunchy base adding to the texture, it again ticked those boxes. And the latter dessert was just as good, designed for chocoholics everywhere chocolate sponge with a rich, gooey, chocolate centre and, with the ice-cream giving the coconut hit, this was an amazing end to a spectacular meal, and a wonderfullyrelaxed dining experience. So to all the staff and management, we really appreciate the 110% effort and service you guys always give, and it’s great to see that those high standards you set at the start are still priority. Bianco’s restaurant is open from 1pm to 11.30pm, with a 15% discount between 1-6pm and different entertainers nightly between 8.30 and 10.30.

Divorce hotel IN the Netherlands a weekend break can become a weekend break-up for couples hoping for a swift and cheap divorce.

It is a concept called the ‘Divorce Hotel’ and helps husbands and wives to arrange all the necessary legal documentation to end their marriage over the course of just two days. They meet a mediator and series of lawyers behind closed doors who will split assets, agree alimony payments and arrange visitation rights - all for a fixed fee. It is the brainchild of entrepreneur Jim Halfens, who said he spotted a gap in the market in a country where the average divorce can easily run into five figures and take months to complete. “When they leave the hotel, all work is done,” he told Sky News. “The only thing that happens then in Dutch law is that they have to show the agreement to a judge in the Netherlands and that takes a couple of weeks. “They walk divorced out of this door and to make it official takes a couple of weeks.” He uses a number of highend boutique hotels around the country, including the smart Carlton Ambassador Hotel in The Hague. Sales manager Ninke Bons explains that the couples, who often check in together, but mostly choose to stay in separate rooms, are handled with care by the staff. “We treat them as any other guests, we just try to keep a closer eye on them or make sure they are not wandering around by themselves,” she says. “Just as an example - we would normally enquire if a guest enjoyed their stay at the hotel. Well, obviously that’s not very appropriate

in the case of the Divorce Hotel.” Couples have to apply to use the process and are rigorously screened by the hotel legal team. If the husband and wives are squabbling, or barely on speaking terms, they are deemed unsuitable for the process. A businessman called Hans spoke to Sky News offcamera about his experience in the hotel. He and his soon to be ex-second wife actually enjoyed the process. “When we were not in the hotel and discussing arrangements, we were going out in the city and having a bite to eat and having a drink and actually a few laughs as well!” One of the mediators who guides couples through the weekend is Anne Marie Van As. She said: “Today, more and more is known about the damaging effects of a fighting divorce especially... on children. “So a concept which binds mediation with a comfortable environment in a relatively short space of time in which a divorce can be finished is a brilliant concept.” It is also a brilliant concept for TV and the multiEmmy Award winning Base Productions is pitching a series to television networks in the US, and several are said to be interested. Producer Mickey Stern says rather than a reality TV show they are proposing a highgloss documentary series examining couples as they go through the process and how conflicts are resolved as the spoils are divided. And the obvious potential for expansion into other countries is also being explored by the creator: the US and Germany may be next to experience the check-in check-out road to divorce. The cheap and speedy legal solution is perhaps appropriate for these times of austerity.

Dover-Calais ferry route re-opened

A DOVER-CALAIS ferry route which was suspended in November, when SeaFrance collapsed, is due to be re-opened.

French shipping group Louis Dreyfus Armateurs (LD) has teamed up with Denmark’s DFDS to operate the route, which was originally run by SeaFrance.

November, after 15 years in service, when the subsidy was removed and put 1,850 jobs on the line. The joint venture between LD and DFDS will not be receiving a subsidy. The companies had bid to buy SeaFrance but their offer was deemed too low. The joint venture will create 300 new jobs at sea and ashore in France, employing many ex-SeaFrance staff,

and will start five services a day in each direction from February 17. DFDS passenger director Chris Newey told Sky News that “some” jobs would be added in Dover but the bulk would be in Calais. Only one ship, the Norman Spirit, will sail at first but the companies are looking for another “suitable” vessel to add to the route. P&O runs 23 journeys in each direction every day.

CAA launches comparison chart for those extras fees

BRITISH holidaymakers are now able to compare the extra fees charged by airlines thanks to a new tool from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

They have published a summary of the optional charges imposed by the top UK airlines in an easy-to-use table document. It includes information about luggage, in-flight meal and reserved seating fees, as well as other optional charges that could apply to carriers’ flights. The comparison table is part of a series of resources the CAA has made available to help guide British consumers through the peak holiday booking season, which includes the Passenger Portal

Page 44

SeaFrance was a subsidiary of the French state-owned railway firm SNCF and was heavily subsidised by the government. Its rival P&O Ferries, which also which also operates a route between Dover and Calais, complained to the European Commission that this state-backing allowed it to operate unfairly, and cut prices to uncompetitive levels. The company collapsed in

– an online plethora of advice and information for travellers to use before completing bookings, prior to their departure and for when they return if they have any issues during their trip. It’s designed to ensure passengers have everything they need to choose what’s best for their holiday. The new tool covers charges from a range of airlines, including Ryanair and easyJet, as well as foreign carriers like American Airlines and Air France. For example, it highlights the one 23kg bag allowed by Air Canada for a fare between Europe and Canada, compared to the two allowed by British Airways. Also highlighted is the £6 per flight, per passenger handling fee from Aer Lingus for purchasing a ticket with a credit card, while Virgin Atlantic adds 1.5% to the

headline fare. This follows the UK government announcing plans in December to impose a legislation that will ban excessive surcharges for using debit or credit cards to buy products like airline tickets by the end of the year. The decision was the result of an Office of Fair Trading (OFT) investigation due to calls for businesses to be more upfront about extra fees, including airlines and booking agencies. Consumer watchdog Which? got the ball rolling by filing a supercomplaint with the regulator. CAA chief executive Andrew Haines says that the diversity of the country’s aviation industry offers great choice and value to consumers, with carriers adopting various business models. To benefit from that, consumers want to know the whole picture.

The headline ticket price for some airlines will be most expensive part of a booking for some passengers, but others will be more impacted by optional charges that can change their view of the best price overall. This table allows travellers to easily compare the optional charges carriers impose, and it’s essential to consider those fees alongside fares before the booking is made. In addition to the resources above, the CAA has also worked to make sure all UKoperating carriers comply with obligations to display unavoidable taxes and other charges more clearly in the booking process. This comes after extensive work with the airlines to put consumers in a better place to see what the total cost of a flight will be. More information is available from www.caa.co.uk

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel

Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

Toyota are back in the race with a real belter! THERE has been a distinct lack of anything speedy in Toyota’s showrooms in recent years. That’s despite a long and successful history of performance cars, like the Celica, Supra and the superb, sleek-looking MR2 (Mister Two, as a pal of mine insisted on calling it). More than 3.9 million Celica had been sold worldwide when production was halted in 2006. That was a mystery because customers obviously liked the idea of a sporty motor with all the Toyota reliability. Now, though, we can raise a cheer for the new Toyota GT 86, developed in conjunction with Subaru (its version is called the BRZ) and being built in the latter’s Japanese production plant. When the two cars arrive in showrooms this summer, sales of the Toyota will outnumber the Subaru nine to one, and it’s not hard to see why. Apart from their heritage, Toyota have a much healthier dealer network and a higher profile, especially in the States.

Subaru, by comparison, are mere tiddlers. Despite a long and successful history of performance cars, there has been a distinct lack of anything speedy in Subaru’s showrooms recently. And this offering is virtually identical to the Toyota machine. The GT 86 could face stiff competition from the Volkswagen Scirocco and Peugeot’s tasty RCZ, but it will certainly appeal to those buyers looking for something a little more traditional. The Toyota looks like an oldschool coupé straight out of

the Eighties. Subtle it isn’t, but it is still a handsomelooking car. Toyota are not fitting the GT 86 with oversized wheels and tyres and, compared with rivals, its 17-inch wheels look relatively small. But this pays off when it comes to the car’s handling. Under the Toyota’s bonnet is a 2.0-litre petrol engine, with 197bhp powering the rear wheels. For the moment (and unlike the Scirocco and RCZ), this will be the only powerplant offered. Toyota seems reluctant

to offer any kind of turbocharged performance version, or a lower entry-level car with, perhaps, a 1.6 or 1.8-litre engine. The only choice is between a manual six-speed gearbox and six-speed automatic with paddles behind the steering wheel. The automatic, however, isn’t one of the latest twin-clutch systems. The GT 86 is certainly no slouch. With a 0-60mph time of 7.2secs, and a top speed of 143mph, it’s hardly a slouch. Average fuel economy is 40.9mpg.

That’s pretty good, especially because of the way those figures are achieved. Toyota are clear about their aims for the GT 86 didn’t want to chase acceleration figures and outright top speeds. Instead, the Japanese company wanted to build a driver’s car that would leave you wanting to take the long and winding road home rather than the motorway. From the moment you settle into the low-slung driver’s seat with the rev counter, large and proud, directly in front of you (just

like a Porsche 911) there’s the suggestion that this Toyota might be something a little special. And so it proves. As accessible and affordable driver’s cars go, the GT 86 is up there with the original Mazda MX5, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It must be the best driver’s car in the coupé class, but it certainly isn’t the most practical. Toyota call the GT 86 a two-plus-two, but the tiny rear seats are virtually redundant. As soon as any six-footer is in the front, the rear seats effectively have no legroom. And be prepared to go back to the Eighties with the interior. The dash and upholstery are a sea of black with red stitching. It won’t be to everyone’s taste and, no doubt, it will date quite quickly. Compared with its rivals, though, the GT 86 is by far the best driver’s car and the one most likely to put a smile on your face. And it’s arguably the best looking, barring the Peugeot RcZ. The cost for this fabulouslooking coupe, which will be available in the summer, is likely to be in the region of £16,000 (18,050 euros).

Shocking expose of dodgy cars on UK roads THERE could be more than four million cars on today’s streets in the UK which are considered unroadworthy.

That’s the dreadful admission made by the British Government, who have revealed the shocking ineptitude of MoT testing centres. The Vehicle Operator and Standards Agency (VOSA) have admitted that 12.4% of the 35 million cars tested between 2010 and 2011 were incorrectly

assessed. And almost 10 million of them had at least one defect completely overlooked by the assessors.

10 February - 16 February 2012

The data is particularly alarming, in view of the changes made this year to the MoT test, which

added complex technology like electronic stability control and tyre-pressure monitoring systems to the

list of check-ups, creating even more opportunities for mistakes. The statistics have forced the Government to abandon plans to reduce the frequency of MoT tests from annually to every two years. Instead, Transport Secretary Justine Greening has announced a number of measures to try to crack down on the sector, and give motorists better valuefor-money service from the testers. The VOSA has been made to publish its research into testing standards to increase the sector’s transparency. The Government will also encourage garages

to sign up to industry codes of practice and arrange “mystery shopper” tests to help improve performance. The MoT certificate will also be changed to show mileage information for the previous three years, as well as on the day of the test, to help motorists spot whether their cars have been clocked. I’m not so sure these accusations of “ineptitude” apply to Tenerife South’s two ITV testing centres, at Las Chafiras and Adeje, which are said to be far more stringent with their vehicle examinations. Good job, too!

Match Report By Geoff Huxtable

Sundowners not so Hopeful WITH just six match weeks to go, Division 2 leaders Sundowners heaped some unwanted pressure on themselves by crashing to a surprise home defeat against Summerland Hopefuls. Ourplace Naturals are now just three points behind, although they had to win the trebles leg to beat Bad Girls/ Boys. Palms Sports Bar pulled out all the stops to hold Scruffy Macs to a 4-4 draw, while Cafe Rood B are still just in with a shout, thanks to a 6-2 win over Marilyns. Jo-Jo, Evette and Joan all won their singles at Valle Vikings 2, but the Flames stopped there as they lost 5-3. And Barracuda Hunters created a minor upset, winning the last rubber to take all the points at Naughty Nautas. Bar 180 A’s Wayne added another to his season’s maximum tally during a comfortable victory over Target Army, while Xtreme’s 7-1er at La Central kept them in second with a game in hand. Cozy Wanderers closed in on the inactive Phoenix Bar by beating Gaffers, and Barracudarts’ Mark took out a 118 as his team got the

better of Bar 180 A. Highlight of that match was Del’s 146 check-out for the San Blas team. The Pub’s last-leg win at Tavern gave them all the spoils, while Toscales Tornados managed only a draw at Target Titans. Ramon hit his first 180 for the home side. Graeme and JZ, of X-Men, used their many years of experience during a closefought match with Yelas Bar. Their 15-dart doubles leg win helped them on the way to a 5-3 success. Elsewhere, Toscales Ensecan more or less secured mid-table respectability with a sound win over local rivals Valle Vikings 2. The semi-finals of the John Lowe team handicap competition are scheduled for Friday, 24th February.

Balompie get the Alba

CD Tenerife 2 Albacete Balompie 1

LAST Sunday was one of those all-too-rare days when it felt great to be a CD Tenerife fan.

The last few years have been tough, and this season has hardly been one for the archives. But this magnificent win has given everyone a massive boost in so many ways. The fans have been tremendous recently, and there were nearly 10,000 of them here at the Heliodoro. And when I say 10,000, I mean

9,993! That is an amazing turn-out. To put that into some context, there were three matches in La Liga which had a smaller crowd, including Real Madrid’s match at Getafe! Only a couple of matches in the second division could do better, and none came even close in the 39 other games at this level. And all this for side in fifth place. Well, they will be higher than that if Sunday’s form is anything to go by. Albacete came down with Tenerife last season, and they have been in

tremendous form recently. But they were battered in Santa Cruz and the biggest mystery was: how did they nearly escape with a draw? Tenerife fell behind after just 85 seconds when Marcos deflected a shot past Sergio Aragoneses. It was a tough own-goal, but it didn’t set the home side back. They reverted to their pre-match tactics and stuck to the task. Tenerife's new signings are bedding in well, especially Luismi Loro. I wrote last week about him - and he was man of the match again. It was his excellent free-kick

which levelled matters halfway through the second half. His dipping effort bewildered the Albacete keeper and bulged the net off the underside of the bar. This was the cue for the cavalry charge. It happened last time at home when Tenerife left the back door open. On Sunday, there was a different outcome. In the final minute, a diving header from Pablo Sicilia gave Tenerife their first home win over Albacete since 2006. The win delighted the fans, but also sent a message to the league. Back-to-back wins for the first time since that start

of the season, coupled with Real Oviedo’s draw at Lugo, has thrown the top spots wide open. A Joselu hat-trick helped leaders Real Madrid Castilla to a 6-0 spanking of Coruxo, who will be shell-shocked ahead of their match with Tenerife this Sunday! Coruxo were dogged in defeat in Santa Cruz a few months ago, but their form recently has been patchy. That said, they are excellent at home, as their unbeaten record shows. High-flying Castilla, Rayo B and Getafe B have all failed to win at

Coruxo’s picturesque ground. Sunday’s match is the first in a vital period for Tenerife. The next three matches should yield nine points before the big clash with Castilla on 4th March. While Tenerife have lost twice only since early October, they have had a lot of draws, which is why these next three games are so crucial. Centre-back Tarantino is available after serving suspension, but it would be a major surprise if they were any tactical changes. The match is live on TV Canarias and kicks off at 11am.

However, the Tenerife lads were not finished. Fritzel played his best frame of the weekend to claw one back, and League Chairman Roscoe sunk a famous last-frame black to level the match. Two days later, the sides cued off again at The Palms and this match was just as memorable. Again, Scotland were ahead early on as the Tenerife boys jawed a range of blacks. At the turn, Scotland were comfortably ahead and at 19-11 the match seemed over. The sporting Gods had other ideas. Inspired by a cacophony of Swing Low Sweet Chariot and other

songs, Tenerife roared back. They won 12 of the next 13 frames to lead 23-20. The most unlikely of victories was on the cards until another twist developed. Suddenly the pressure of seeing the finishing line was getting to the hosts as Scotland found some belief. They dragged it back to 23-23 and, after some more poor Tenerife shots, they led 25-24. Again, Tenerife needed a cool head - and they found one in debutant Tommy. The Dreamers player was always in control of his match with Mo, allowing the youngster to cut his

own throat as he won to seal another amazing draw. This set the event up beautifully for the finale at the Terrace Bar last Sunday. The venue was rammed and, for once, Tenerife took the early exchanges. Leading 6-5 there was an air of expectancy, but alas it wouldn't last. Tenerife potted white, after white, after white in what will now be remembered as “In-Off Sunday”. The Scottish team took no prisoners and they hardly missed a shot. Tenerife heads dropped a little and it was left to the Surgeon (don’t ask) with his

Meerkat tucked in his shirt (seriously, you had to be there!) to sink the winning black and give Scotland a fourth straight win. The Tenerife lads went on to clinch the dead rubbers and leave the scoreline a respectable 27-23. It was an amazing few days and a contest of the highest quality. The event goes from strength to strength and, in September, we shall be travelling to Glasgow to get the trophy back! Hat-tip goes to Chris Collins, of Hoops for being named player of the tournament after winning all his six matches.

The organisers would like to say a big thank-you for all their help to Toddys Gold Label, Direct Telecom, Oasis Fm, Tenerife Pool Tables, Stitches, Palms Bar and The Terrace Bar. Elsewhere, the draw has been made for the next round of the Toddys Gold Label Cup, featuring a juicy tie. Arch rivals Palms A continue their defence against Tenerife Hammers A in what will surely be a tight encounter. Third Division Gaffers B must travel to Hoops, while 2nd-round giant-killers Toscales A-Team will host Legends.

Luckless Tenerife taste defeat IT WAS a case of so close, yet so far for the Oasis Fm Pool League in their international contest with a Scotland Select. The fourth annual contest was the closest ever. The three-day event, played in a tremendous spirit, started with a stormer at the Palms Bar. Scotland traditionally start quickly and they were soon 4-2 up in the first-to-26 match. But Tenerife roared, literally, back and at 10-6 and then 16-10, they were in command. But a bizarre incident seemed to inspire a Scottish fightback. Steve Jaeger, from the Phoenix Bar, was in complete control of his match after his opponent fouled. Two shots with just the black to sink. But Steve, or White Ball as he will now be known, was so engrossed in the shot that he picked up the cue ball instead of asking the ref to collect it. Rules are rules, which meant two shots to his opponent, who then somehow missed an easy black. Steve needed only to pot a straight black to win, but his head was still in bits as he jawed it and lost. The comeback was on and 20-17 became 24-all. And when Scotland claimed two more frames, they were 2624 up with two to play.

Horoscopes of the week AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

The arguments and misunderstandings which made for such a dramatic start to the year now need to be sorted. And if that means that you have to be the first one to hold up a white flag, then so be it. You’ll feel so much better getting back on track with someone who has come to mean more to you than you’ve previously been willing to admit. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Your tendency to gossip is about to land you in some hot water. If you tried concentrating on your own life, maybe you wouldn’t feel the need to have to interfere with others. The truth is you’re nervous and frightened about what’s to come, but if you get back in the driving seat instead of just doing what others tell you to do, then you’ll soon feel good again. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) During the coming seven days, you finally get the chance to start to turn your dreams into a reality. Some sort of a restriction or setback you faced before is lifted, and you get the green light. Save money, though, because it’s your ticket to the freedom you’ve been asking for. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) You have not been happy in your work for some time now, but this week offers you the chance to do some fine-tuning, and to make your career more suited to your needs and desires. Jealousy in love at the weekend could force you to say something you will regret. Please beware - and think before you speak - because your love life could start to get exciting! GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Things you thought were not achievable for the future now become a real possibility, thanks to the influence of a strong, powerful

Page 48

character who is now in your life - and on hand to give you strength, courage and determination. Watch out for a demanding family member, though. You may want to have a ready-made excuse with which to combat him/her. CANCER (June 22ndJuly 23rd) The home and your personal affairs take more of your money than you can spare, but it does seem to be for a worthy cause. Saturn, the planet of structure, is trying to talk some commonsense into you, but you just don’t seem to want to listen. Forced changes in the lives of those you care for are certain to be in their best interests in the long run. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) Relationships come under the spotlight, and you’ll be putting a lot of time and energy into shaping the ones who are of most importance to you. Work requires a few white lies, but just make sure you know how far is too far to go, or you’ll undo the good work that this year has so far seen you do. Make your family a major priority over the next few days. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) You seem to have created a tension between your personal and professional life, but this could lead to you being accused of things you are not guilty of. Try to let down a few of your defences or you you’ll force someone’s hand to make a decision which isn’t necessary. Travel plans get exciting from Tuesday when something you never thought you could do is offered.

Word Ladder 30-Second Brain Training

Substitute one letter at a time on each rung of the ladder to move from the start word to the end word.

MOPS

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) You’re finally getting more interested in yourself, and you’re ready to give up the bad habit or habits which did such a good job of dragging you down at the beginning of the year. Moves are on the mind of many a Libran, and this is a great time to find the right property, or to get a good price for your home.

SCORPIO (October 24 t h - N ove m b e r 22nd) You’re growing up, and you’re ready to take life seriously. You haven’t always been good with money, but you start to make up for any bad actions this week when you commit to something which could be the beginning of really fruitful things for you.

S AG I T TA R I U S (November 23rdDecember 21st) Expect the unexpected and you’ll still be in for a surprise. It seems that someone wants something you don’t want to give, and, being a Sagittarian, you will eventually decide to make a stand. Advances from an unwelcome party must be cut off quickly and firmly as soon as possible in the coming week. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) You finally close the door on a sad, emotional chapter of your life and, better times await you from now on. Take up the offer to go somewhere new and exciting. It may seem daunting, but it’s sure to turn out to be just what the doctor ordered.

What better way to train your brain. Starting at the left with the number provided, work across each of these lines applying the mathematical instructions to your running total. Don´t reach for the calculator - that´s cheating! Write your final answer in the last box of the line. Aim to complete each round in about 30 seconds. Good Luck!
