It’s plane sailing! Relief for Tenerife tourism as air controllers call off planned strike TENERIFE’S battered tourist industry breathed a collective sigh of relief this week when Spanish airport staff called off their planned strike - at least until next month. The air traffic controllers, set for a three-day shutdown on 18th August, were instructed by their union on Tuesday to carry on working. The anouncement followed top-level discussions in Madrid, and requests from the tourists sector and the airlines, with Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero pressing the union to make up its mind. Earlier in the month, the Union of Air Traffic Controllers (USCA) had voted overwhelmingly to down tools over government changes to their working conditions. The union then broke off negotiations with AENA, the state-run airport management authority. But César Cabo, USCA head of communications, said the no-strike decision was “a demonstration of responsibility” by the controllers. Zapatero, who presided over Tuesday’s meeting between AENA and union officials, called on the controllers to make a decision “as soon as possible”. He said the proposed action had already caused “uncertainty” and “negative effects”. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) also urged AENA and the controllers to take “all measures possible” not to damage the country’s key tourist industry. Following the three-hour meeting, the controllers’ union agreed to postpone any

action until September, paying regard to the importance of the tourist industry in mainland Spain and the Canaries. A strike next week would have affected thousands of tourists - especially Britons travelling to and from Tenerife, and would also have left many stranded on the Island. It would have been the third major disruption to the South and North airports this year, following the disastrous Icelandic ash-cloud controversy in March, followed by freezing conditions which shut down major airports

throughout the UK. The airport union’s decision has been welcomed by the tourist sector, and talks with AENA resumed on Wednesday in the hope of bringing the dispute to a satisfactory conclusion. The airports’ management authority has already offered a fixed salary of not less than 200,000 euros a year - one of the highest in Europe - and a set pattern of shifts with compulsory overtime, which would bump up salaries enormously. It has also proposed half-hour breaks for every two hours worked. In addition, the Air Transport Association has

pressed air-traffic controllers to accept the offer in order to “resolve their differences” with AENA. The government had

already put in place plans to ease at least some of the intended disruption by using military air controllers. Thankfully, for the tourist

industry as a whole here on the Island, that move won’t be necessary. At least for now. Continued on page 4.

Minister meets Monarch King Carlos steps into border row ALLEGATIONS of clashes between Moroccans and Spanish police at the Melilla border are being tackled personally by the King of Spain. José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has been meeting with King Juan Carlos, who in recent weeks has been putting together a process of stability, peace consolidation for the Spanish economy. After the first of the two offices held every summer with the King, the Prime Minister underlined the influence of the measures that the Government has been implementing since last May at the start of economic recovery, particularly “the initiative to publish the stress tests of our banks and savings banks, which have shown the ability to be solvent.“ He added that this will continue progressively reflecting on the financing capacity of financial institutions and private companies, a process that will be slow but that is headed in the right direction. As he explained in his appearance before the media after his meeting with the monarch, the President has explained that what will be needed in the coming

months are “new initiatives to the process of economic stability, growth and recovery in the longer term, employment recovery.“ Among them, he has cited the adoption of the General State Budgets and austere eye on the recovery plan, and plans to promote the competitiveness of the Spanish economy. The recovery in employment is, according to the President, one of the biggest concerns of the government and the monarch. In this sense, he has announced new initiatives in active employment policies “to bring opportunities,

training opportunities and employability for those who are older.” Asked if the Minister of Development will directly intervene in the conflict between Aena with the group of air traffic controllers, the Prime Minister noted that the Executive’s desire is to make a decision as soon as possible “to call off the course possible strike.“ Asked to sit down to negotiate and be aware that just a hypothetical strike uncertainty and produces only negative effects.

logue but that dialogue is not adversely affected by this situation.“ New European tax The Prime Minister has avoided comment on the new European tax which has been talk in recent days: “It’s an idea that has not yet been finalized. If completed by the Commission will give timely opinion.” In any case, he assured that “we need a strong EU Europe because it makes us more secure to all members of the EU, as seen in this grave crisis.” Therefore any consideration to strengthen economic and financial capabilities by the EU “will be seen by the Government of Spain with interest.” In Question Time, the President has said that recent news about the possibility that some of the ministers are candidates in regional and municipal elections have no influence on the composition of the government or in a possible short-term remodeling. He also noted that they are making all efforts from the government and diplomatic representatives to attend the Spanish who have been affected by floods in India.

King Juan Carlos called King Mohamed VI to try to solve recent “misunderstandings” between the two factions. His intervention earlier this week came after the release of several statements complaining about the treatment of some Moroccan citizens at Spain’s border post at the North African

enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta. Accusations of racist behaviour and aggression by border guards against Moroccans have been levelled. The monarchs, who will have an informal meeting soon, agreed that the “misunderstandings should not affect the excellent relations” between Spain and Morocco, The King’s phone call followed a statement from Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero saying he wanted to clear up the matter, but underlining that the Spanish security forces acted with “maximum correctness”.

A WORD FROM OUR EDITOR

It’s plane sailing!

Working 9 ‘til 5... I don’t think so! Continued from front page. Yet it is not all good news for travellers because, as we went to press yesterday, in the UK, Unite union members, who work at BAA’s six UK airports, voted for strike action. A ballot over pay involving 6,000 staff belonging to the Unite union resulted in a three to one vote in favour of strike

DO YOU fancy a break from the 9 ‘til 5 lifestyle? I thought that was why we resided here in Tenerife, to escape the British system? Or, are you one of the millions looking for work? Either way read on… In the media this week are jobs advertised which are slightly different shall we say. Fancy being a shark personality profiler, a Koala catcher or a “roo poo” harvester? Well, a range of odd occupations on offer in Australia may be for you. The South Australian government is attempting to lure what it says are Britons stressed out by the UK’s work culture. Officials said the new jobs will help those aged 18yrs to 30yrs achieve the “ultimate work-life balance”. Is that not age discrimination. Other jobs on offer include a Fairy Penguin home remodeller on Kangaroo Island, a shark personality profiler at Port Lincoln, and a beer taster. Australia offers more exciting work and travel options than anywhere else in the world due to it’s diverse cul-

ture and geography. All interested applicants need to do is fly to South Australia on a working holiday visa. Officials said jobs like sifting through kangaroo dung will offer Britons a unique experience. South Australia‘s Londonbased agent Bill Muirhead said: “This isn’t about one job that everyone has to compete for, but rather about showing people that South Australia offers more exciting work and travel options than anywhere else in the world. “Travellers who want to work have an option. Take the usual trail, do the usual jobs, or go for something that you can’t get anywhere else in the world and have an experience you’ll be dining out on for years, the sort of experience you’ll be telling your grandkids about.” The South Australian government has commissioned research that claims some 60% of British workers are bored with their jobs with Wrexham and Coventry listed as the worst places to work. “This is the first time these jobs have collectively been released and with no previous experience necessary, we’re offering people a genuine chance to get away from it all,” said Mr Muirhead. Until next week…

action, the union said. Unite will meet with its key representatives on Monday to decide what form of industrial action its members will take. Any action will affect not only Heathrow but also Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Edinburgh airports, which will

almost certainly have to shut down because Fire-fighters, plus security and ground staff are involved. Earlier, Prime Minister David Cameron had said any strike would be futile. “These sorts of strikes never achieve anything apart from damage - damage to business, damage to jobs,

damage to the interests of tourists who want to come to visit Britain, or people who want to leave Britain and have a holiday overseas,” he told reporters at No 10. Tellingly he warned; “We want to demonstrate that Britain is open for business,“ but it appears to have been to no avail.

Spanish prices risen In Spain the 12-month inflation figure rose in the month of July to 1.9 percent, official data illustrated last Thursday, which means that it is at its highest level in nearly two years. The figures from the National Statistics Institute (INE) confirmed preliminary data released on July 29th. It attributed the rise to a gain of 6.2 percent in the price of automobiles and of 4.3 percent in gas prices. Inflation in June had dipped to 1.5 percent after three months of rises. The July figure was the highest since November 2008 when Spain fell into recession. During the first quarter, Spain became the last of Europe’s big economies to emerge from recession, with official data showing fragile growth of 0.1 percent. The Bank of Spain last Friday forecast growth of 0.2 percent in the second quarter while official figures from INE are to be released on this Friday. Spain slipped into its worst recession in decades at the end of 2008 as the global financial meltdown compounded a crisis in the domestic property market, which had been a major driver for growth. The recession pushed first-quarter unemployment up to more than 20 percent. Source AFP

IN TENERIFE we’ve not seen literally a sea of immigrants for a long while, even more unusual during the religious fasting period of Ramadan. However, a would-be illegal immigrant drowned and seven others are missing after their small boat is thought to have capsized

off the coast of eastern Spain, maritime rescue services said last Thursday. Ten immigrants of Algerian origin were on the boat that sank on Wednesday off the tiny Spanish island of Tabarca, near the eastern city of Alicante, sources in the maritime rescue service said. Two of them were rescued while the body of a third was recovered. The search continued for the seven others. The service also said in a

statement that it had rescued 25 men of Algerian origin travelling in a boat off the southeastern coastal town of Mojacar, and a further 10 migrants in two boats near the southern town of Tarifa. It said that all those rescued appeared to be in good health. Spain has been a magnet in recent years for African migrants aspiring to reach Europe. Authorities fear many of those who

attempt the crossing by sea die of thirst, hunger or exposure. But the number arriving by sea last year fell by 45 percent compared with 2008, according to the government. It attributed the fall to the economic crisis in Spain as well as better policing of the waters around the country and cooperation with the immigrants’ countries of origin in sub-Saharan Africa.

Ladies dig deep for charity Pic: Daniel Prado San Cristóbal Castle, Santa Cruz 1st Aug 2010 - 30th Sep 2010 Monday to Sunday Time: 11:00 - 19:00 The Castillo San Cristóbal visitor’s centre has reopened its doors to the public in the Plaza de España, Santa Cruz. It was closed following the heavy rains that devastated the island on February 1st. The ‘Castillo de San Cristóbal’ Visitor’s Centre features an exhibition of Tenerife’s old defence system. It offers information from its construction in 1575 to its demolition in 1928. Since the 25th of July 2009, the ‘Castillo de San Cristóbal’ Visitor’s Centre has had an added attraction to delight both local and foreign visitors: the legendary ‘El Tigre’ cannon. Although it cannot be demonstrated historically, popular belief says that the famous British admiral Horacio Nelson was injured and lost his arm thanks to this ‘El Tigre’ cannon. Compañía Nacional de Danza Tickets are on sale during August for performances by the Compañía Nacional de Danza 2, which takes place in the Symphonic Hall in Tenerife’s Auditorium on the 6th and 7th of November. Tickets can be purchased by calling 902 317 327 (between 10:00 and 19:00 Mondays to Fridays), in the Auditorium’s ticket office (between 10:00 and 15:00 Mondays to Fridays and 10:00 to 14:00 on Saturdays), in CajaCanarias multiservice terminals, or online at www.auditoriodetenerife.com. The history of the Compañía Nacional de Danza is firmly linked to Spain’s most recent past. The main objective of the company is to train and prepare dancers for professional dancing and serve as a link between, dance schools and professional dance companies such as the Compañia Nacional de Danza. Its repertoire is principally made up of works by Nacho Duato, although works by young choreographers have gradually been incorporated, allowing dancers to keep up to date with new trends and incorporate them into their performances. The aim of this project is to inspire young dancers, to arouse interest in contemporary dance amongst young audiences and add to the range of cultural activities on offer in Spain.

As part of the Cabildo de Tenerife’s safety measures for forest fire and wild fire prevention, all visitors and residents on the island are strongly urged NOT to go up into the hills and woods over the next few days until the situation improves. The Island Corporation kindly request that drivers use only the tarmacked roads and avoid forest tracks whenever possible. Holidaymakers and residents are strongly recommended to take extra precautions when visiting the mountains. In an emergency please call 112. Updates: www.diariodetenerife.es

PROPERTY sales in Spain increased by 10.7% in the first half of 2010, compared with the same period last year. And sales rose for the sixth straight month in June, which was a positive sign for an economy devastated by the collapse of its once-booming property sector in 2008. Figures released last Tuesday by the National Statistics Institute (INE) showed that 37,297 transactions were registered in June, while July saw 1% more property sales than the respective month last year. Nevertheless, the June increase was more moderate than in preceding months. More than half the Spanish properties sold in June were second-hand (19,339) and 48.1% new (17,958).

The number of transactions of new-build properties fell 2.1%, while second-hand property sales increased by 17.1% over June 2009. Yet the underlying facts reveal a different scenario. Property sales in June 2007 were strong at 66,670, dropping to 46,533 in June 2008. And the comparison between those figures and this June’s (37,297) showed a 56% drop in sales. Sales rose 7% yearon-year in June, slightly less that in May, said the INE. The property industry’s decline plunged the Spanish economy, which was Europe’s fifth-largest, into a severe recession in 2008. It has sent the unemployment rate rocketing to more than 20%, which is the highest in the eurozone. The rising housing sales were spurred by lower prices and more attractive interest rates.

26 die in tragic weekend on Spanish roads SPAIN has experienced its most appalling weekend on the roads this year, with 26 deaths stemming from 24 fatal accidents. Another 30 people were injured. Eight who died were on motorbikes, while seven were pedestrians. Of the 24 accidents, seven were for leaving the road, seven for collisions, and ten caused because of distractions,

according to the DGT traffic authority. It is thought that fewer fines issued by the Guardia, following their unofficial work-to-rule, has led to drivers and riders not paying their usual respects to speed limits. Despite the tragic weekend, the 991 total of Spanish road deaths recorded so far this year is 174 lower than the same period in 2009.

Desigual will launch its collection online next month, at the same time as Zara, and both say they have had “multiple requests” to provide an online delivery service from people living a long way from their nearest store. Mango, which started its own shopping website 10 years ago, when internet retailing was less of a guaranteed success, has reported excellent results.

HUNDREDS of swimmers on Spain’s holiday beaches have been stung by swarms of jellyfish that have swept along the Costa Blanca. At least 700 people have complained of being stung since Sunday - 380 alone on Tuesday. Normally just a handful of swimmers are stung every day.

The jellyfish are tiny and invisible, meaning it is difficult to warn bathers of their presence. “In the five or six years I have been in this job, I have never seen anything like this,” said Juan Carlos Castellanos, of Elche’s city tourism department. Officials have blamed strong currents for sweeping the jellyfish onto beaches. In the north, it is the muchfeared Portuguese Man of War that has been plaguing beaches in the northern areas

of Cantabria and Basque. At least 300 swimmers have been stung in the last three weeks - the creature’s metrelong tentacles carry a venom that causes intense pain. Despite the spate of stings, officials say this summer has been quiet on the jellyfish front. But scientists say jellyfish numbers could rise due to global warming and intensive fishing off the Spanish coast that kills its natural predators, such as tuna and swordfish.

How Navy saves jet ski rider from police PARTIDO POPULAR, the Spanish Government’s main opposition party, believes criminals are taking refuge on the Rock, with the help of the Royal Navy. The PSOE Socialist party agreed there is collaboration between the Guardia Civil and the Royal Navy in the waters off Gibraltar, after El Mundo newspaper carried a critical piece on the matter in Tuesday’s edition.

Page 10

El Mundo this week highlighted a recent incident in which a jet ski being chased by the Guardia Civil’s Zodiac escaped to the Rock, after three patrol ships from Gibraltar blocked the police boat in Spanish waters. José Ignacio Landaluce, national PP deputy, is said to have blamed the PSOE Government for what he sees as a lack of support for the Guardia Civil del Mar in operations in the area - especially as Gibraltar is a known haven for criminals wanted by Spanish police.

But PSOE national deputy Salvador de la Encina maintained said that the collaboration between the Guardia Civil and the Royal Navy in Gibraltar was “extraordinary”. He added: “Relations are good, independent of the incidents which had existed historically, but which always have been solved with dialogue, as it could not be otherwise in a democracy’. Meanwhile the Guardia Civil based in La Linea have seized 702 packets of contraband cigarettes close to the Gibraltar border.

Cameron backs move to stop cheap alcohol

DAVID CAMERON has indicated he will support councils that want to ban shops and bars from selling cheap alcohol. The Prime Minister said plans to introduce a minimum price per unit of 50p in Greater Manchester would be looked at “very sympathetically” Ten local authorities in the area want to pass bylaws to address public disorder and health issues caused by binge-drinking. The approach has the backing of doctors and health experts but ministers have previously been lukewarm to the idea.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Mr Cameron made clear that he did not want to introduce a national minimum price for alcohol. But he said: “I think the idea of the councils coming together on this is a good one and we will certainly look at it very sympathetically.” He went on: “I think if what you’re trying to do is stop supermarkets from selling 20 tins of Stella for a fiver that’s what we’ve got to go after. “Where I want to try and help is ending the deep discounting on alcohol. “People going and ‘preloading’, having bought from a supermarket where they were attracted by a price

designed to bring them into the store.” Mr Cameron said a local bylaw could fall foul of competition rules as it would mean alcohol in Greater Manchester being priced higher than neighbouring areas. Any bylaws imposed by local authorities would need to be signed off by the Home Secretary, he added. The House of Commons Health Select Committee and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice) have both voiced strong support for minimum pricing. However, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley expressed doubt on the grounds that it punishes low-income families.

'World' backs an Essex cafe in Harrods tussle THE OWNER of a roadside cafe has hailed the support he has received from across the globe in his row with Britain's most famous department store, Harrods. Nigel Holland's comments came as Harrods appeared to back down in the battle over the logo for Hollands Cafe Lounge. Harrods had claimed the lettering of the Hollands sign is too much like its own and was threatening legal action if Mr Holland failed to change it.

In turn, he has argued it would cost £14,000 to make changes to his signs, menus and website. Harrods has now offered to help make the changes and said it was "awaiting feedback" from Mr Holland. But Mr Holland has said the company has not yet made any offer of cash to cover his costs. "Harrods has offered to assist with rebranding Hollands Cafe Lounge, so we have sent them the copies of invoices from when we had our signs designed," he said. Public support has been phenomenal. We have had hundreds of emails from all four corners of the world.

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

Mr Holland went on to say he had received global support for his battle with Harrods. "Public support has been phenomenal. We have had hundreds of emails from all four corners of the world." Harrods attracts 1.5 million customers a year to its site in Knightsbridge, one of London's most prestigious locations. The store can trace its origins back to 1849, while its original gold coloured logo was first created in 1967. In contrast, Hollands Cafe Lounge sits on the northbound stretch of the A12 near Rivenhall and opened in early 2010.

Police found the body of a woman, aged in her 40s, lying in Stansfeld Road, Beckton, at about 7.30am on Thursday morning She had been attacked in the street by someone wielding a knife and ID documents led them to her family home a short walk away in Leamouth Road. The house was on fire, and

inside they found the body of her mother. The woman, believed to be in her late 60s or early 70s, had been stabbed to death. Firefighters extinguished the blaze, which is thought to have been started in an upstairs bedroom. Officers then found a man in the loft. He said the man, aged in his 40s, is understood to be the partner of the first woman. The suspect was taken to an east London hospital, and has been arrested on suspicion of murder. Police said his injuries

are not life threatening. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Inquiries are under way to identify the deceased and trace next of kin. Inquiries continue.” Neighbour Ben Tilley said he saw the man being taken out of the property at around 8am. He said the suspect and his partner had lived at the family home about a year ago. He added: “They were a nice normal couple - they used to keep themselves to themselves.”

Puppets discover new voice at the Edinburgh fringe

VENTRILOQUISM is back at Edinburgh’s Fringe Festival, where a number of acts are causing quite a stir among audiences. In its heyday, television family favourites such as Lord Charles, Nookie Bear and Keith Harris and Orville were big ventriloquist stars. But by the mid-80s their popularity had waned, their humour seemingly tame compared to the explosion of socalled alternative comics like Ben Elton and Rik Mayall. But could Britain be entering a new Golden Age of ventriloquism? That’s the question being asked at this year’s Fringe. Paul Zerdin, one of Britain’s new ventriloquism stars, said: “I just think a lot of those old acts from the 70s and 80s took ventriloquism so far and then just didn’t develop it any further. “So as styles of humour changed, becoming a lot more edgy, the old variety

show type performances just didn’t stand up any more. They became a bit staid and boring.” Ventriloquists today are really cutting edge with their humour - they’re pushing all the boundaries, which is why I think they are making such a comeback. Zerdin and fellow British ventriloquist Nina Conti are both heading new shows in Edinburgh and the reaction from their audiences has been very positive. “I just think people are rediscovering ventriloquism again,” said Conti, whose Talk To The Hand show features puppets Monkey and Scottish Granny. “These things are often cyclical, something goes out of favour, something else takes its place and then when everyone gets a bit tired of that along come a new breed of comics with a different approach, in my case using puppets.” The resurgence in Britain has been prompted by acts in America such as David Strassman and Jeff Dunham,

with their top-selling DVDs and 350 million hits on YouTube. Terry Fator, another ventriloquist star in the US, won America’s Got Talent in 2007. Alex Rochford, booking manager at The Assembly Rooms venue in Edinburgh, said: “Ventriloquists today are really cutting edge with their humour - they’re pushing all the boundaries, which is why I think they are making such a comeback. “The other amazing thing now is the quality of the puppets. They’re not just wooden dummies with chattering mouths. “These latex puppets are just amazing, so expressive.” Conti agrees, adding: “I think TV shows such as Spitting Image probably helped to kill off the old-style ventriloquist acts - especially on television because people got used to more sophisticated puppets. “As soon as ventriloquism stopped being on TV then it disappeared altogether and people stopped caring about it.”

Teen £1m Lotto winner thought she’d won £70 An 18-year-old who scooped £1.1m on the lottery said she didn’t realise all her lucky numbers had come up. Stacey Bywater said she was pleased with £70 extra spending money to take on a family holiday to Turkey after spotting only four of her six matching numbers. The teenager admitted it was only later that her father Gary examined the ticket and found she had won the jackpot.

Page 12

“I watched the lottery on Saturday night and realised I had some numbers but only thought I had four, which was about £70,” Miss Bywater, from Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, said. “Then I realised I had five, which was a bit more. Then when I went to see how much I’d won, my Dad said: ‘I think you need to sit down and check your numbers again because you’ve got the full six.’”

The nursery nurse said she will keep the money in the family - buying a home for her elder sister and giving her parents a deposit to move out of their council house. But she said she had no plans to jack in her day job after the £1,117,779 windfall. “I’m going to continue in my career, I work with children and I really enjoy it so I won’t be giving that up, but it’s going to change my life,” she said.

A father’s life is Holidaymaker in coma ‘destroyed’ after after balcony plunge head-on smash A MAN says his life has been “destroyed” after his wife and sixyear-old daughter were killed when a car going the wrong way smashed into their vehicle. Ian Richardson, 37, and his three-month-old baby Ava survived the horrific collision which happened on the A1 near Gosforth, Newcastle. But his wife Joanne, 40, died at the scene and their elder daughter Mya, who suffered head injuries, lost her life the next day in hospital. Mya had been chief bridesmaid at her uncle’s wedding in Dundee and Mr Richardson was driving the family home to Billingham, Teesside, when the crash happened on Sunday night. Mr Richardson, who has chosen to donate Mya’s organs, has released a photograph of the family taken that weekend at his brother Simon’s wedding. Even though Mya’s light was taken from us, we wanted her to live on. Mya’s selflessness means that at least six other families will have the chance of a future. Mr Richardson, who is still recovering in hospital with Ava, said: “My life has been destroyed and my girls have been taken from me before their time. “The only light I have now is my baby Ava. She gives me the focus to carry on and begin again.” Ava survived the crash despite being showered in glass. He described her as a “miracle child” who completed the family after a series

A YOUNG holidaymaker is fighting for his life after falling from a hotel balcony while on holiday in Ibiza. Ryan Elley, 20, from Portsmouth, Hampshire, was seriously injured at the weekend after plunging two storeys from a balcony at the Jet Apartments in Playa d’en Bossa. He was airlifted to Son Dureta hospital in Palma, of miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. Mr Richardson, who works in marketing, also said: “Mya was a great kid, so full of life and spirit. Her verve, passions and enthusiasm made her unique. “She also possessed a deeply caring and thoughtful side and would always help those less fortunate. “Even though Mya’s light was taken from us, we wanted her to live on. Mya’s selflessness means that at least six other families will have the chance of a future. “That little bit of knowledge gives us some consolation.” Mr Richardson described

Majorca, where he was put into a medical coma. On his Facebook page, Mr Elley asked on August 6 where he could find cheap flights to Ibiza. His father, Simon Elley, said his son made a spur-of-themoment decision to join friends on holiday. Mr Elley said they did not expect their son’s condition to worsen. He told the Portsmouth News: “Ryan has been heavily sedated and he is in a coma

in intensive care. “He had a massive bleed on one side of his brain and three smaller bleeds on the other side. He will not be able to move anywhere for at least two weeks. “But there has been some good news because he has not got any worse.” The family are now faced with a £15,000 bill to pay for an air ambulance to bring him back to the UK because he did not take out medical insurance.

his wife, who worked for Currys Digital in Middlesbrough, as a devoted mother and the backbone of the family. He said: “She put the girls first in everything and always supported me. She was always keen to make sure the girls were challenged and encouraged them in both their education and creativity.” A 61-year-old man from Blyth, Northumberland, suspected of driving a burgundy Jaguar north on the southbound carriageway was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He was bailed until October.

Serial killer suspect held by FBI US police have arrested a man in connection with 20 racist murders and stabbings in Michigan, Virginia and Ohio. The suspect was caught after the FBI were called in to help with the investigation. Five men have been murdered in Michigan and a further 15 attacked in the three states. Police had released a sketch

of the suspect and over 500 people contacted them with information. One of those tips led officials to Beecher, Michigan, where the suspect is believed to have worked in a party store. The man was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia, on Wednesday. The last attack was on Saturday in Ohio, when a minister was stabbed outside his church while smoking a cigarette.

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

In several cases victims were attacked by the man after he got out of his car and asked them for directions. He then stabbed them repeatedly in the stomach. In other instances, the man asked for help with his car before attacking his victim. Officers in Virginia said the attacks were racially motivated, although police in Michigan would not comment on the matter. All but two of the 20 victims were black.

Ryanair steps Sex-pest panic up safety after toddler plunge BUDGET airline Ryanair says it has tightened up its safety procedures after a threeyear-old child fell on to the tarmac while boarding one of its planes. The child, Olga Slater, escaped with only minor injuries after falling through the gap between the handrail and the level platform at the top of the Boeing 737’s boarding steps. On a Ryanair flight leaving Stansted airport, she climbed the stairs unassisted as her mother, journalist Sasha Slater, was carrying her 18month-old son, Joe, with one hand and luggage with the other. When Olga reached the top of the stairs, “she turned

Page 14

towards her mother, leaned backwards and fell through the gap between the extendable handrail and the top of the airstairs,” an Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) report said. After receiving initial medical assistance, Olga was airlifted to hospital and was released 24 hours later. The AAIB recommended that Ryanair review its current passenger boarding and disembarkation procedures

“so that assistance is made available to passengers accompanied by children and those with special needs”. The report into the incident, on July 17 last year, said: “The gap between the extendable handrail and the upper platform of the Boeing 737 airstairs represents a hazard to small children boarding or disembarking the aircraft.” In a written statement , the airline said: “Ryanair has reviewed its procedures as

recommended by the AAIB report into this incident, which took place over a year ago. “New procedures including new high visibility tensa barriers, and specific announcements to passengers travelling with young children on both boarding and disembarkation have also been introduced in order to eliminate any recurrence of these extremely rare events in the context of over one million Ryanair flights over the past two years.” The AAIB said there were four previously reported similar incidents involving small children on other airlines. This led to American aviation authorities issuing new safety information, including amendments to the Boeing 737 flight attendant manual.

A BRUTAL sex offender who is the prime suspect in the disappearance of six women has controversially been released early from jail - and plans to move back to the area where they went missing. Larry Murphy is one of Ireland’s most notorious sex attackers but he has been released just 10 years into a 15-year sentence. Protesters say he has shown no remorse and refused to take part in any rehabilitation programme. In February 2000, he kidnapped a woman in her 20s, repeatedly raped her in the isolated Wicklow Mountains and then tried to suffocate her with a plastic bag. There’s unbelievable concern that this lad has been let loose without any conditions whatsoever. She only escaped when two men stumbled across the scene while out hunting late at night. Murphy was arrested for the crime and became the prime suspect in the cases of six missing women from the so-called “Vanishing Triangle” area of the Irish midlands. At least one former senior detective still believes Murphy, who lived in the village of Baltinglass with his

wife, may be linked to the disappearances of those women. PJ Browne, a retired detective superintendent, said officers from Operation Trace considered Murphy their prime suspect. “The Guards (police) interviewed Larry Murphy… and he failed to co-operate,” he said. “And the question I would ask… is why did the disappearances stop when Larry Murphy went to prison?” Murphy’s early release from Dublin’s Arbour Hill Prison has sparked a public outcry. His own brother has questioned the decision to grant him his freedom. “He won’t be coming back to me,” Thomas Murphy said. “And I don’t know what I can say to the people of Baltinglass to pacify them and put their minds at rest.” Villagers in Baltinglass do not want him back. Gerry O’Neill, a local councillor, said women are now afraid to travel alone. “There’s unbelievable concern that this lad has been let loose without any conditions whatsoever,” he said. Cathal McMahon from the Irish Star Sunday newspaper has co-authored a book entitled The Beast of Baltinglass.

With temperatures rising into the 30s, it was nice to get out of the afternoon sun and into the air-conditioned venue at Playa de Las Americas. The opening act and show’s presenter was Liam O’Reilly, followed by Pip Brown’s Michael Buble tribute act. The Leeds lad has been on the island for only four months, and was making his debut at VIVO, as well as being live on Oasis Fm. But he pulled out all the stops with a professional show, wooing the audience with some Buble hits, including Just Haven’t Met You Yet and Sway. If you enjoyed Pip’s tribute act, you can see more of

Grouse numbers have fallen again GROUSE shooting is worth more than £20m a year to the Scottish economy, a new study shows but there is concern grouse numbers are falling. On the first day of the new grouse-shooting season - The Glorious Twelfth of August research by the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) shows that it contributes £23m annually. It also directly supports more than 1,000 jobs on the sporting estates and surrounding areas. August 12 marks the first day when shooting parties take to the grouse moorlands with guns loaded. Typically, a party consists of eight or nine members, each of whom will typically shoot around 20 grouse and pay around £2,000 to take them home. It is a business that has grown over the years. In the early 1990s only 1% of grouse moors made money from shooting parties. Today 41% are profitable. The number of grouse being shot is managed by the gamekeepers on Scotland’s sporting estates to avoid ‘over-shooting’, with roughly

10% of the overall grouse population killed. But while more money is being made from grouseshooting, the grouse population has fallen steadily. Numbers have declined over the years as a result of less heather on the moorland combined with an increase in the number of predators and parasites. Those who manage the industry want more Government support to boost grouse numbers and build on their business success. They want fewer restrictions on killing foxes and other predators and more freedom to maintain the wild heather that is home to the grouse but prone to damage by parasites. At present heather can only be burned between October and April, but GWCT director Dr Adam Smith said that was only making the situation worse. “We call on policy makers to support the industry with the basic tools we need - the ability to burn heather and do remedial work at a time of year when it’s being damaged by parasites, not be restricted to a rigid set of winter months when those bugs aren‘t necessarily at their worst.”

Explorer wakes up in jaws of a Polar Bear

AN EXPLORER has described the moment he was attacked by a polar bear - waking up to find the animal’s jaws around his head. Sebastian Plur Nilssen was attacked last week as he slept in a tent on the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Mr Nilssen was travelling with his expedition partner, Ludvig Fjeld, as they attempted to become the first ever team to paddle 1,250 miles around the island chain. Despite protecting their tent with a trip-wire hooked to a early warning flare, Mr

Nilssen woke face-to-face with the biggest land predator in the world. The 23-year-old was dragged screaming from the tent, with his head clamped in the animal’s jaws. The adult male bear flung the young explorer’s body from side to side in an attempt to stun him, a technique typically used on its usual prey of seals. The polar bear’s teeth pierced Mr Nilssen’s lung as it fought for a better grip and narrowly missed a main artery in his neck. “It was so strong I could not fight, I grabbed for my shotgun and tried to shoot it but the polar bear had snapped the gun in half,” he

said. “It must have been only a minute I was in his jaws but it felt like forever. “It was a big bear, at one point it stood up on its back legs with me in its mouth, I was 2.5 metres off the ground and it seemed very high.” As the bear made off with Mr Nilssen, his 22-year-old expedition partner scrambled to find their other rifle. “I was about 20 or 25 metres from the bear and it had Sebastian in its mouth, I was very worried I did not want to hit Sebastian as well,” said Mr Fjeld. “That would have been a really bad day for him. “When I fired the first shot, the bear dropped him,

but I had to fire four more to make sure it was dead. Mr Nilssen was airlifted from the scene, bleeding heavily, and was rushed into an emergency three-hour operation. But despite his brush with death, Mr Nilssen said he was not angry at the bear, speculating that it carried out its unusual attack on humans because it was hungry. “I must be one of the only people in the world who can say when people ask me about my scars, ‘I got them in a fight with a polar bear’,” he said. Polar bears are protected under strict conservation laws and can only be shot in self defence.

Old habits die hard for Sister star Whoopi WHOOPI Goldberg is getting back in the habit to perform in Sister Act the musical after vowing she would never appear in the show. As a producer, she helped turn the film into a West End hit last year - but declared she would not to star in it. However, she has decided to break her vow to attract more theatregoers to the London Palladium. Back in 1992, Goldberg played Deloris, the lovable

Page 16

nun-on-the-run in the Sister Act film. But this time, she has taken the role of Mother Superior, replacing Sheila Hancock. Goldberg said: “I’m back in the habit. I said I would never do this again but I’m in the adult part now, playing Mother Superior. “I hope she allows me to have a little fun because you know she’s very adult, so I have to, like, watch myself with her.” It is no great surprise that Sister Act the musical has been a hit. Theatre producers quickly learned to cash in

on West End musicals based on popular films. Some of the most successful shows are adaptations of movies, like Dirty Dancing, Billy Elliot, Calendar Girls and The Lion King. While they have certainly put bottoms on seats, critics say they do not offer theatregoers an original experience. But Goldberg said, although producers often choose the soft option, there is still room for new ideas in the theatre. She said: “While there is a room with a light, original

plays will be written. Playwrights particularly are compelled to write, it’s like breathing to them, so there will always be new works being done.” Goldberg is an Oscar-winning actress, as well as a singer, song-writer, comedian and talk show host. She has recently put on her political activist hat to raise funds for Haiti with Wyclef Jean, who she is backing in his attempt to become president. Goldberg said: “If he has the heart and soul to do it, then let him do it. Anyone

taking the job of president or prime minister, or even the Queen, it’s a tough gig because people are looking to you to instantaneously make things happen not realising that it’s a process. “I hope he will bring to his country what is needed. Nobody knows it better than Wyclef.” Goldberg will appear in Sister Act until August 31, alongside Patina Miller in the lead role of Deloris Van Cartier, recording artist Simon Webbe as Curtis Shank and Dad’s Army star Ian Lavender as Monsignor.

Russia pays the price for Winter Olympics THE 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia could become the most expensive Games ever - with estimates coming in at a staggering £20bn. With four years still to go, that figure will dwarf overall spend for Canada’s Vancouver Olympics of about £3.5bn. The 2014 Games in Sochi, on Russia’s southwestern coast, are already dogged by massive controversy and allegations of corruption. Many homes are in the process of being demolished to make way for the six-stadia Olympic Park. Bulldozers have been crashing through the remnants of once beloved buildings, whose owners argue the destruction of their homes is unnecessary. Natalia Prudnikova’s house was to be the next to meet

such a fate. She had lived in her “beautiful place” for more than a decade, but was given three days to get out. She was heartbroken. Ms Prudnikova said: “My life, the lives of my children, have been completely destroyed like this house. Pain, that’s all I feel. “We’re so angry. They could have easily amended their draft plans and redesigned the project to avoid homes.” Ms Prudnikova and her neighbours were offered

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

compensation which, they said, does not match the true value of their homes. They were also offered new homes, but they said these are cramped and poorly built. The authorities insisted the result will be worth it. Their shiny promotional video showed the ambition of the project, which is being billed as the most expensive Olympics ever. Perhaps, surprisingly, the most expensive aspect is a

road which will connect the coastal area with the mountains. It will cost a staggering £5bn because they have to drill through 17 miles of mountain. But many said what is really making these games so pricy is corruption. Businessman Konstantin Dorafeyv said his firm had to pay a backhander to a corrupt official in order to get a contract to build a hotel. He said: “Suddenly a new contract was announced and

the job was taken away from our firm. “We had already done a lot of work on it but another company was paid for doing things that we had already done. For example, the road to this hotel was budgeted twice.” Such claims are widespread. Lawyer Mikail Benyash alleged that land for construction is being stolen and then sold back to the state at a cost of millions. “Since the announcement of the Winter Olympics it’s been like vultures feeding from a corpse. My city - where I’ve lived all my life - is being torn apart by predators,” he said.

Corruption is a rude word to those involved in the projects. A chief engineer of one of the stadiums said, there is no corruption because the government is in charge of the budget. As millions are spent on shiny stadia, those forced to leave their homes stripped them of all that might offer some cash. Others salvaged flowers from their gardens, the last fruits of decades of labour. The Sochi Committee promises the best winter Olympics ever - but it will come at great financial and, to some, personal cost.

The expedition proved a great success, as did the barbecue, with all the “challengers” enjoying a guided tour of the refuge, and meeting some of the 170 dogs for whom the funds were raised. And even the children who accompanied their mums and dads were catered for with a cooling dip in the pool. Aktiontier’s next date for your diary is 5th September, when they are holding an afternoon tea party with a dog agility exhibition. More details to follow shortly.

Lots of fun at our Open Day

LIVE ARICO welcomed some 200 people to an Open/Auction Day last Sunday at our new refuge, and it proved to be a smashing success all round. At the time of writing, pledges/money were still coming in, but a total of around of 1,350 euros was raised. The day was organised mainly by supporters Chris and Barbra, who worked so hard collecting items for the auction lots, including some beautiful vases donated by Antiquities, in Las Chafiras. Meat for the barbecue was kindly donated by Pete the Meat, from Euromeat, and the Las Chafiras branch of Iceland, so there was plenty to eat and drink for our guests. Special thanks to the Red Cross (Cruz Roja) in Granadilla for supplying an ambulance

and two lovely staff free of charge. Chris Donogue, from Oasis Fm, hosted the event extremely well, and some entertainment was provided by Suzy Q, Phil Gibson and the wonderful Rokk Solid. They finished the evening off as things got a bit silly, with Eugenio and his committee jumping in the swimming pool fully clothed! An appearance was made

by former world champion boxer Nicky Cook, who donated a pair of signed gloves to auction next time. Another highlight came when Eugenio was presented with keys to a converted coach for him to live in, bought and paid for by his many well-wishers. All in all, a fantastic day was had by all, and Live Arico officials are now planning their Bonfire Night celebrations.

Online virus robs from 3,000 UK bank accounts THOUSANDS of online banking customers have had their accounts drained by a sophisticated new computer virus, internet security experts say. Around £675,000 was taken from a “large UK financial institution” over the last month with 3,000 customers hit - and the attacks are ongoing. Online security firm M86 Security Labs said the customers were infected with a Trojan virus - which cannot be detected by traditional antivirus software - while browsing the internet. The Trojan, known as a Zeus v3, copies the passwords and usernames of customers’ online details and transfers their funds to a different account. It then gives the victim of the virus a false bank balance screen so they are unaware the cash has been taken. M86 said the virus is potent because it has been carried on legitimate websites locat-

ed in the UK and not confined to porn and gambling hubs. The online security firm, based in California and Britain, uncovered the fraud when it penetrated the criminals’ command server, based in Eastern Europe, and found a list of all the cash transfers. The company said the cyber criminals had modified the Zeus virus, which is one of the most popular type of Trojan used by fraudsters, taking online hacking to a “new level of technical sophistication”. According to our research, these cybercriminals used a combination of the new Zeus v3 Trojan and exploit toolkits to successfully avoid antifraud systems while robbing bank accounts. “According to our research,

these cybercriminals used a combination of the new Zeus v3 Trojan and exploit toolkits to successfully avoid antifraud systems while robbing bank accounts,” the firm’s report said. “This indicates a new level of technical sophistication and signals the continuation of a cybercrime trend. “Two years ago, M86 Security Labs identified Zeus, which became one of the most popular trojans used by cybercriminals. “Today, the latest iteration, Zeus v3, not only acts a data collector - it also performs illegal online banking transactions.” The name of the financial institution affected has not be released by M86 and high

street banks have refused to comment. Last year £59.7m was lost to online banking fraud, according to Financial Fraud Action UK. A spokeswoman at the industry body said the use of Trojans or malicious software to steal cash was “nothing new”. “Bank systems are hard to attack so they’re having to go through the easier link in the chain, which is the customers,” she said. “They’re hoping customers aren’t taking security precautions. We’ve been seeing this for the last few years and we’re constantly urging people to protect their computers to try to mitigate the risk of becoming a victim.”

The 37-year-old Swedish man was caught by a camera on the A12 highway between Bern and Lausanne on Friday. He was travelling so fast he needed over half a kilometre of road to come to a halt, according to one arresting officer. The Swede may have to pay up to £650,000 under a formula used in Switzerland that takes into account the driver’s salary and how much over the speed limit he or she was. Other older speed cameras had failed to capture the

Swede in his £160,000 Mercedes-Benz because the technology was unable to detect speeds over 125mph (200kph). A police spokesman added: “We have no record of anyone being caught travelling faster in the country.” In 2001, the 44-year-old Finnish boss of Nokia was issued with what was believed to be the world’s heftiest speeding fine. Anssi Vanjoki had to pay 116,000 euros (£95,400) after he was caught doing 47mph in a 30mph zone in Helsinki while on his Harley Davidson motorbike. Traffic fines in Finland are determined in a similar way to that in Switzerland, so Mr Vanjoki’s large salary at the telecommunications company was taken into account.

DAVID PENNY Tales From Travels Of Years Gone By Email: David.Penny@canarianweekly.com

Fuertaventura, full of Eastern promise This week, DAVID PENNY takes a look at the final two islands of the archipelago, Lanzarote and Fuertaventura, in his review of the 1952 travel book, Madeira and the Canaries. A Traveller’s Notebook, by Elizabeth Nicholas, the Sunday Times travel writer of the day MRS NICHOLAS sailed to these islands in the spring of 1952 on the “delightful ship La Palma” (recently restored and now on view in the port of Santa Cruz). She was struck by the contrast between these islands and the others she had visited in the Canaries, saying: “By happy chance, the 20th Century seemed to have passed them by altogether.” She also describes the port of Arrecife thus: “in atmosphere it was very noticeably African and could not possibly have been mistaken for a fishing port in the Mediterranean (as was the case with the islands formerly explored). “There was a general ambiance which could never have been European, I am reluctant to suggest that it had an atmosphere of the East, and yet such was the case. “However, it is possibly to stay very comfortably on Lanzarote, for a splendid parador has been built on the edge of the harbour. “It is a large, spacious, cool building, furnished with all modern comfort and exceedingly unexpected; the en pension (full board) rate is about 22s a day (£1.10) including excellent food, which is provided in lavish quantities. “Admirable wine costs only a shilling or two (5-10p) a bottle and I can imagine no better place for those who like to get away from the beaten tourist track. “Lanzarote is, at the same time, the last place for those who seek any sophisticated entertainment; there is nothing to do nothing except sit in the sun, bathe - and sea bathing is not of the first quality - and enjoy the atmosphere of a world which is remote from ours by a couple

of centuries or so. “And yet Lanzarote, in its way, has a very occupied life. Tomatoes are grown, and maize and pumpkins, wheat, barley, chick peas and potatoes and, of course, vines from which a truly powerful wine is produced. “Trade has assumed very reasonable proportions, and there is even an airfield and a regular air service, between Gran Canaria and Tenerife.” It is interesting to note that in these early days of Canarian tourism, it was the norm for the Spanish State Tourist Department to furnish each visitor with a guide and translator, who would accompany the tourist on their excursions; however, one was expected to provide one’s own chauffeur. On Mrs Nicholas’s visit to the Montanas del Fuego - “a picture of magnificent desolation” - her guide demonstrated the latent heat of the blow holes for her by grilling a chop on the lava rocks. She travelled from Arrecife to the group of extinct volcanoes which lie on the south

western shore. To reach the volcanic area, she “drove northward first, to the little town of Teguise, which lies roughly in the centre of the island”. She adds: “Apart from the church, which is possessed of a certain charm, there is nothing here which would attract the attention of Baedeker (a German-based pioneer in the business of world travel guides). “But it is a town of great fascination for those who like to find the Middle Ages in the 20th century; the shambling camels proceeding melancholically up the main street were more reminiscent of Jerusalem.” Camels at this time were the main means of transport on the island, as well as being used in agricultural processes of ploughing, etc.) Mrs Nicholls continues: “From Teguise, another road runs down the centre of Lanzarote, then branches in a north-westerly direction to Tinajo, on the edge of the volcanic area. “Having crossed this, we

came to Yaiza, another straggly village, and so back to the main road to Arrecife. I do strongly recommend this drive to anyone who may ever visit Lanzarote, however briefly.” Sailing in the early afternoon, she landed at Puerto Cabras in Fuertaventura at first dusk. “My visit to this island was exceedingly brief,” she writes. “There was also exceedingly little to see. “It is a land of paradox for it has less water than any other island, yet it produces great crops of tomatoes, onions, alfalfa, root vegetables and grain. In shape, the island is long and narrow, around 60 miles long, and 20 miles broad. “It is, today, adequately served by roads, but in my opinion it really is not worth making any great effort to see it. (Her words not mine). There is, moreover, no inn which even approaches the usual tourist standard. “To a large degree, its lack of interest is due to an entire absence of agreeable natural contrast; very few flowers,

no woods, virtually no trees. “The vegetation, my guide told me, is, in fact, of considerable interest to those versed in such matters, for it is very varied and resembles closely the vegetation found in the deserts of North Africa. “But, in the end, Fuertaventura gave me one enchanting picture. From Puerto Cabras we sailed south to the little port of Tarrajal, where we loaded cargo by the light of flares. “It was night by then and the sky was thickly pricked with stars. In this moment, there was the core of all travel nostalgia; the land left behind, lonely, strange and isolated, the lights dying on the horizon and ship moving forward slowly, doggedly, and without emotion into the great spaces of the sea. “In the morning there would be Las Palmas but, at that moment, the land was behind us. We were alone, moving gently beneath the stars, and all that was left to us of earth was the recollection of a few huddled cottages, a climbing street, and flares reflected on

the dark surfaces of the waters.” “By way of a postscript, there is one island not yet mentioned in this review, and that is the “legendary” island of San Borondon, said to be named after Saint Brendan, who landed there in AD 565. “In the centuries that followed the voyages of Saint Brendan, various sailors testified that they had seen the island but, for one reason or another had been prevented from landing on it. “In 1519, San Borondon was actually named in the treaty of Ivora, concluded between Spain and Portugal, when it was specified as the unknown island. “In, 1721 a party set out from Santa Cruz, complete with a complement of priests to exorcise the island of its undoubtedly evil spirits should they find it; needless to say they did not. “The last time the island was “seen” was in 1759. Incidentally, quite a detailed map of it may be found in the Museo Canario in Las Palmas.”

Sunday 15 August, 10:50pm - 12:35am, Channel 4 James Wong resumes directing duties for this third entry in the horror franchise, which like its predecessors delivers more gruesome deaths and ghoulish giggles. High-school graduate Wendy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is boarding the Devil’s Flight rollercoaster ride when she has a terrifying premonition of a fatal accident. After she gets off, a scuffle breaks out and those classmates ejected from the ride then watch as disaster ensues. But that’s just the beginning: one by one they fall victim to a series of elaborately structured and gory fatalities. The gimmick here is that Winstead’s photo record of the ominous night provides clues to the mode of her friends’ demise. This adds a surprise element to the intricate and visually ingenious slaughter scenarios - including death by sun bed, firework display and workout equipment. As hysterical laughter merges once again with screams of terror, this is a worthy addition to the series.

Loro Parque

www.canarianweekly.com

Loro Parque celebrates This summer sees the birth of 2 new Sea Lions.

LORO PARQUE has started the summer by extending its family of animals thanks to the birth of two Californian Sea Lions. The little cubs, each of which weighs approximately 10 kg and which are now being fed by their mothers – Marta and Mara - are the 16th and 17th of the large group of Sea Lions housed at Loro Parque and Siam Park. This group has been breeding successfully since 1989 and this is due to the high level of welfare that these sea mammals enjoy in their

Page 28

installations. And, their dad – Polo- can be seen at Loro Parque, but it’s still early days for the two cubs to be out in the public domain. The cubs, two playful males, spend most of their time with their mothers swimming and playing in the roomy installations provided for them by Loro Parque. After up to one year of lactation they will start eating fish and become more independent. A competition to choose names for the pups is running on the park’s Facebook site; see www.loroparque.com or facebook.com/loroparque

for more details. The Californian Sea Lions (Zalophus californianus) belong to the species of seals and sea lions, specifically to the family of eared seals, and live on the coasts of the Northern Pacific Ocean. They are characterized by the great difference in size between males and females. While the males can reach between 300 – 380 kg, the females weigh only 90 – 100 kg. They live on fish and mollusks and are the only mammals with lactose-free milk. They are very sociable and playful, living in numerous groups and interacting constantly.

JOE ‘IN MY OPINION’ FERGUSON Weekly Update Email: joe.ferguson@canarianweekly.com

No offence… but! IN A matter of weeks, we will have to see the footage of what happened on 11th September 2001 all over again. It’s one of those dates when everyone knows exactly what he or she was doing, and where. I was driving on the M62 heading into Manchester when my CD of Norah Jones finished playing and the radio came on automatically. I could not believe what I was listening to. I drove straight back to Liverpool to watch the news and did not move for hours. The images of those planes flying into the towers will forever be in my head. No matter how many times I

have seen these images, I still find them shocking. But what has happened, and still is happening, after these events I find the most shocking. I did a piece not that long ago about how I see MY freedom being taken away in society. A freedom that I and everybody else of Christian faith have always valued and was taught in school to abide by. I am non-practising in my Christian faith, which is my right. I do believe in the Bible and hope that after I leave this planet, there is somewhere I can go to with the rest of my family and friends. Call it heaven or whatever you wish. The piece I did was about the way Christmas seems to have been taken away from us. It is frowned on to wish someone else “Happy

Christmas”, or to have a nativity scene in a primary school. And why is this? Because we have to respect the faith and religions of others. The greatest thing about being a citizen in a free and diplomatic country is that we can embrace others from another country. Until now, the UK and Ireland welcomes all who are of a different faith. We let them practise their religions in their churches. They can pray at work and worship whatever faith they belong to. And I wish that never to end. I believe in a God who loves everyone, regardless. But there are a few things that just don’t add up to me. If we can embrace all, how come I feel victimised when celebrating Christmas the way I have done for 45 years? I don’t want to say “Happy

Holidays” in case I upset someone else who does not share my belief. Why should I feel sorry for someone else? I am making the point that, as from now, no longer will I feel as though I am walking on eggshells about my faith. Let me explain.. So with the 9/11 anniversary just around the corner, what is the story coming out of New York? That a new Mosque is to built just a few hundred feet from where the Twin Towers fell in the devastation. Just a few hundred feet from where over 2,000 people burned to death, murdered when the planes struck. Hundreds jumped from the buildings, and the majority of workers, fire-fighters, police and the public were also murdered when the buildings fell.

Page 36

These people were murdered, we are told, all in the name of a religion. The very same religion that will be worshipped in the Mosque just down the road in New York. I have the greatest respect for my Muslim friends and their faith and, believe me, there are many. And just like the majority they want nothing to do with the murders who carry out these terrors. However, that many will have to see that building so near to where so many died is, in itself, an atrocity. What kind of outlook will be seen by so many if this plan goes ahead? For me, it’s simple. This new Mosque in New York will be seen as giving in to terrorists. It will be looked on as a shrine to the murderers who took these aircraft and killed so

many. This week, we hear that many people in New York will be holding rallies against the building. And buses around Manhatten will have advertising posters showing graphic images of what happened on that day, to show that the city is against this feature. But now, all of this is being looked down on as antiMuslim. How can this be when, in a democratic and free country where the right to protest is sacred, it is now frowned upon. I am sure the terrorists in their little caves are loving all this, and plans are already being put into action, all in the name of religion. They think it’s wrong that we feel this Mosque is a terrible idea. They could build it anywhere, but to have it so near to where so many lost their lives is just a sin. I do not feel horrible for writing this, and let me tell you why. Last week, a British woman was among a group of others from different countries who were shot dead in Afghanastan. Why were they murdered in cold blood? For practising their Christian faith. For praying to who I see as my God, for worshipping in a church I have been brought up to respect. They had a different outlook and opinion to what and who they believed in. They were killed for it. New York’s citizens will be targeted for not wanting a building that WILL be looked at as a signal that it’s fine to murder, and that tax-payers will make up for the loss. All we can do is show our disgust. It is just the most ridiculous thing. And to be honest, I have had enough. I will be celebrating Christmas the way I always have. If others don’t like it, I don’t care. If anyone is offended by my words, I don’t care. If others from a different faith want to look into this in any other way, I don’t care. But I will say this: whoever or whatever your faith and God is, you know that murder is NOT on any decent-thinking person’s agenda. Joe

Get switched on, to dollies and rockers GANGS, Dollies and Rockers - it sounds like the title of a naff West End musical, featuring lots of leather jackets and girls who look like Olivia Newton-John. But to the switched-on, these names have nothing to do with footlights and everything to do with illumination. In the jargon of the electriclight switch, dollies and rockers are types of switch, and the gang is the number of switches on the plate. If you move into a new house or apartment and find anything smarter than a cracked white plastic switch, consider yourself ahead of the game. It is not unknown for a departing owner to remove all his expensive switches and wall plugs and replace them with the old rubbish he inher-

ited when he moved in. Of course, that’s if he is feeling decent. If not, he’ll leave the bare wires poking out from the walls, and a pile of plastic in a box on the floor. The seller is almost certainly in breach of contract, because switches and plug outlets are deemed to be fixtures, so it creates a claim for damages. In practice, it’s unlikely anything will be done, but it is worth sending a solicitor’s letter claiming compensation, especially if the decorations have to be made good. If light fittings are removed, the wires should obviously be made safe, and not left sticking out of the wall. When you look at the cost of replacing the switches and sockets, including TV, broadband (ADSL over here) and telephone, it is tempting to go straight to the nearest lighting shop and buy the cheapest there is.

But it really isn’t worth it. Good switches and sockets are vital because they are part of the whole look. If you’re concerned with doing the job well, you just have to dig dep into your pockets and pay up. That’s the perfect approach, but in the real world there are lots of people who have good decorating ideas but no budget to match. So what you can do is experiment by painting white switches with eggshell paint. They are bound to be a bit grubby if they’ve been there for a while, but give them a good clean and put a coat of paint on them. According to Dulux, sales of coloured paint now exceed magnolia, and almost onethird of the UK population have decorated their living room in blue, green, yellow or red. So who needs a white switch standing out like a pair of old stilettos? Some UK companies actually specialise in unusual light switches, dimmer switches and socket outlets. How else would you find an Invisible Rocker? This “invisible range” is based on Thirties glass switches and comes with brass, chrome, nickel silver or antique bronze dolly switch

or dimmer knobs. They sit flush to the wall with a beveledged acrylic plate, allowing your wallpaper or fancy paintwork to show through. They can be square or circular, and complement the invisible sockets. Unlacquered brass switches and sockets suit more traditional homes and have com-

pletely flat brass plates, which mellow with time. And you can also buy primed plastic switches ready for painting in whatever colour you please. The latest range of brushed stainless-steel faceplates was produced following demand from architects, who needed the finish to suit their hi-tech industrial-style designs.

Apple orchard growing in Covent Garden now! COVENT GARDEN was overwhelmed last Saturday as thousands of London shoppers swarmed to Apple’s fabulous new store there. Spread over three floors in the plaza, it was the company’s 300th new outlet, and is the largest Apple store in the world. The premises, which used to be a nightclub, pays homage to the Californian company’s gadgets, with separate rooms for Macs, iPads, iPhones and iPods. Some shoppers camped overnight to be first into the store, which employs 300 staff, and even recent problems surrounding the latest

Page 38

iPhone failed to dent Apple’s sales, or the enthusiasm of its followers. Last month it reported record quarterly figures worldwide of more than £1.6bn, including the sale of a staggering 8.4 million iPhones. That was an increase of 61% on the same period a year ago and, better still, it overtook Microsoft as the biggest technology company by market value the previous month. The Covent Garden store will

take the pressure away from Apple’s Regent Street branch which, when it opened in November 2004, was the first outside the US. That Regent Store, which has become almost a shrine for tourists and Londoners alike, is said to be the most profitable shop in the country, raking in £60m a year. Ron Johnson, Apple’s senior vice-president of retail, said: “We are thrilled to open a store in this amazing location.”

A garden party to Dig together make a difference The Prince of Wales is joining forces this summer with musicians, comedians, environmental experts and some of Britain’s best known companies to create a unique festival in the heart of London. The Prince is opening up his own gardens at Clarence House, together with his neighbours’ gardens at Lancaster House and Marlborough House this September. ‘A Garden Party To Make A Difference’, is a rare opportunity to visit these historic gardens, it will last 12 days, from 8th to the 19th September 2010, from 10am to 6pm daily ‘A Garden Party To Make A Difference’ is an imaginative part of The Prince of Wales’s ‘Start’ initiative launched in February. The event aims to give people of all ages a fun day out while at the same time, via the exhibits, demonstrating the small steps that can, and are, being taken by all of us, interested in building a more sustainable future. The Prince of Wales said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome visitors into my gardens, and those of my immediate neighbours, for this exciting festival. We have a fantastic team of talented curators who are helping us create an event which will, I hope, be both fun and informative. This festival is just one way in which Start can help to demonstrate how we can all make a difference, however big or small the steps we take.” The 12 day Garden Party, in the heart of London, will be an intriguing blend of exhibitions, interactive displays, fun activities and live performances throughout the day from comedians, musicians and speakers There are several broad cat-

egories of event in the garden party, each “curated” by a well-known public figure: Dame Vivienne Westwood for fashion, Kate Humble for food and outdoors, Jools Holland for music, Jonathan Dimbleby, Sanjeev Bhaskar and Clive Anderson for debate. In the garden section, curated by Alan Titchmarsh, designed by Tom Petherick there is a Future Cities Garden, that will extend the length of the façade of St James’s Palace. This will have a strong edible theme; we are promised a lettuce “wall”, for example. Tom wants to encourage people to get out in the garden for the four seasons of the year, interacting with nature and the outdoors and, in this way, broadening their horizons.

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

The display will include a mini “forest garden”, as well as demonstrations and advice. What links all these activities and attractions is the theme of sustainability, and the Prince’s belief that everyone can make a difference, and should be encouraged to think that they can. “It is about showing people that it is possible both to enjoy life and to protect nature.” Conserving water in the garden is a particular issue this year, after the driest spring and summer for 71 years. It is hard to imagine that the Prince could have chosen a better designer for a sustainable, drought-resistant garden than Beth Chatto. She has been deeply involved in plant ecology for 50 years, ever since she and her late husband, Andrew,

started to make a garden on land not good enough for farming at Elmstead Market, near Colchester. This part of rural Essex is about the driest bit of England with no more than 20in of rainfall in a year. Andrew was a fruit farmer, but also interested in plants in their habitats, and committed to the idea of “right plant in the right place”, to keep the requirement for water and artificial nutrients to a minimum. Beth shared his commitment, so much so that, 19 years ago, she began to lay out a gravel garden, on extremely free-draining soil, until then the car park for her nursery and garden. She was inspired by seeing plants growing in a dry river bed in New Zealand. She laid out the garden using hose pipes, to make a succession of generously curved island beds, with gravel intermingling with the plants, keeping roots cool and minimising evaporation. Although Beth prepared the ground well to receive the plants, and watered them in thoroughly, she vowed she would never irrigate them once established. She has kept that vow. It is never easy. This year, only an inch of rain has fallen each month since March, and temperatures in June and July have at times passed 86F/30C. The drought-tolerant plants in Beth Chatto’s gravel garden mainly come from the Mediterranean littoral or California, and tend to flower in spring and early summer, before high temperatures slow growth. In September, much of the colour will come from foliage and texture, in particular of olearias, Melianthus major, artemisias, senecios, thymes, as well as sempervivums (house leeks) and sedums. But there will be flowers as well, notably from Gaura lindheimeri, purple Verbena bonariensis, scarlet Zauschneria californica ‘Dublin’, blue eryngiums and mauve colchicums.

In the lead up to the Royal Horticultural Society’s annual Dig Together Day, a survey reveals a gardening ‘renaissance’ with increasing numbers joining their local garden and allotment clubs. The RHS, Britain’s leading gardening charity, conducted a survey of 100 of its affiliated gardening clubs to reveal 73% of clubs saw their membership increase or stabilise over the last year –with some clubs full to capacity with people on waiting lists to join. Stephanie Eynon, RHS Community Horticulture Manager said, “Our survey reveals people have been joining or even forming their own gardening and allotment clubs for a variety of reasons – from wanting to grow their own food and plants; to saving cash due to the credit crunch; to wanting expert gardening knowledge and swap tips; but by far the biggest benefit for joining up is the social aspect – which is great..” The positive findings are a complete turnaround from a couple of years ago when low membership threatened the future of many clubs. RHS survey findings: Below are some comments made by people who took part in the survey of the benefits of joining a garden/allotment club: • “People join our club to swap ideas and plants, especially in vegetable growing. They enjoy friendly competition and good social activities such as outings, talks and shows.” • “Getting to know people in

the village” • “It’s a good social life where we have BBQs and provide advice to all the newcomers. There’s nothing that can beat the freshness and taste of home grown vegetables.” • “It brings the community spirit back and you get to know friends you never knew you had. We have a local children’s nursery, primary and secondary schools in our projects working for the benefit of the community” • “We get involved with one of the local infant schools and have planted potatoes with five and six year-olds, apparently it was their favourite outing of the year….hopefully they will be interested in gardening when they’re older.” RHS Dig Together Day held over September 4-5 is a garden club open day which brings together thousands of gardening clubs across the UK, to celebrate the knowledge they hold and to inspire new generations to keep the traditions of gardening alive. Stephanie Eynon, RHS Community Horticulture Manager added, “It’s important clubs host a Dig Together Day over September 4-5 to attract new members and inspire new generations to keep the traditions of gardening alive.” To find Dig Together Day events in your area visit www.rhs.org.uk/digtogetherday which will be live from early August. The question arises yet again is there anything like this in Tenerife? If you have any ideas then let me know.

CARL PATTISON from Robot, answers your hair questions

DEAR CHRISTINE Your resident Agony Aunt Email: agony.aunt@canarianweekly.com

Email: carl.pattison@canarianweekly.com

Sending out SOS for hair I’VE been giving out a lot of “hair repair” remedies lately, so I thought I’d share a few with you. I don’t mess around with words, so if you want to be told that the hair hanging from your head by the skin of its teeth can be saved by conditioner, then don’t read on! Dry, frizzy hair can be controlled with the use of products, the right application of shampoo and conditioner. And hair masques mixed with the right styling products can control this type of hair. It needs moisture, and tons of it, so your shampoo should say “rehydrating, moisturising and repairing”. Remember, shampoo is your first line of defence against dry hair problems. This shampoo should cleanse gently, while leaving the hair smoothed and not matted. Try to shampoo once only to minimise the reduction of natural oils, and don’t over-scrub the hair as this can also make it dry. After rinsing, apply your conditioner, which should also read like your shampoo. Look for words which tell you that moisture levels will be replaced. Don’t be fooled into thinking that your hair will be “put right” with one application (as stated in many adverts). It could actually take weeks to

Page 40

sort out, and will also include having a good haircut. The use of hair masques is not an option but a must-do! You can’t expect hair to repair itself because it needs constant care and replacement of proteins lost through colouring and styling. If you have extremely damaged hair - broken, burnt, frizzy, or feels like chewing gum when wet - then there’s only one solution and it doesn’t come in a bottle. SCISSORS!! Any salon can sell you a treatment to supposedly correct this, but forget it because it won’t happen. But taking away the ruined hair will leave you feeling shorter yet looking better. There’s nothing worse than broken, transparent hair, so starting again will give your hair a chance to regain its strength and put a halt to any more breakage. Left alone, the hair will continue to snap off and result in more cutting down the line, and there’s no getting away from it.

Use this opportunity to opt for a new style, and don’t make it look as though you had to have it cut off. Make it appear as though you went for a new style. The best cure for this type of hair is not to have it in the first place! The number of times I’ve refused to do work is unbelievable. Clients (especially new ones) can’t accept that someone can say “no” to what they are asking for. We as stylists should not only think of the errors in the till, but of our reputation and respect for our clients’ hair. The worst damage I see is from bleaching and/or overuse of hair irons. Here in Tenerife we have an added enemy to our hair, which is the sun. I can’t stress enough that if you want to look after your hair and maintain its condition, there are three steps you must take: Protect. Replenish. Respect. Following these rules will ensure that your hair stays in peak condition.

Dear Christine, I’m 19, have no family and am going to England next month to marry an only son, whose parents worship him. His mother doesn’t like me, though. She thinks I’m going to turn him against her, which is the last thing I’d do as I know what the feeling of being unloved is like. We’ve been saving hard to buy a small apartment here, but this means we cannot have the big wedding my fiance’s mother wanted, so we’ve planned to marry in a register office instead. We don’t mind this at all, but his mother says that if we don’t get married in a church, she will never forgive us and will not attend the wedding. When we tell her we can’t afford it, she just looks away. Now, though, she’s managed to convince my fiance that her way is right. She has sent 60 invitations to her friends, whom we barely know, and has arranged a meal at a big hotel. She hasn’t offered to help out with the money side, though, as she says that’s nothing to do with her. Do you think this is fair? ‘R’

Dear ‘R’, In my opinion, if your guy goes along with this manipulation, your marriage will not last too long, and you may be left with children to bring up alone! If your fiance fails to challenge his mother on this, I believe he’ll never change his ways and you’ll lose all respect for him. I think you’ll also end up hating the mother-in-law since you’ll find yourself blaming her for everything.

But it’s your fiance who is really in the wrong! He doesn’t appear to be man enough to say, “Mum it’s my life, so please let me live it. You’ve lived your life, so it’s my turn now”. Please don’t go ahead with your plans for marriage - at least for 2-3 years. After all, what’s the rush? You probably think I’m being too harsh, and yes, maybe I am, but I married a mummy’s boy at your age and she made my life hell. My husband refused to stand up to her so I lost all respect for him and ended up divorcing him. I beg you not to be the fool I was! Wait until you are more mature and have lived a bit before looking again at the situation. In the meantime, have some fun and don’t be so serious so young. Don’t ever forget that you deserve to be treated with respect by both the man you choose to marry, as well as his mother. Good luck. Christine Dear Christine I live with my girlfriend of three years and we both have steady jobs here. She has just got back from a girly holiday in Majorca and has hit me with the bombshell that she wants to go straight back to work there for a few months, for the ‘experience’. I love her deeply and don’t understand why she wants us to be apart. This is partly my fault because last year we split up for a few days and I made the stupid mistake of kissing another girl. I told my girlfriend about it, but that still doesn’t make it right.

We got back together and our relationship went from strength to strength. But now I keep remembering that I had the chance of going into the RAF before we came here, but I chose to stay with her instead. Where do I fit in to her life, do you think? Dan

Dear Dan, It’s illogical to blame yourself for your girlfriend’s plans. You and she were split up when you kissed someone else, so it’s hardly infidelity. As for where you fit in, that’s a matter for you to decide together. Why not ask her what she wants and what she sees in her and your future? If you are satisfied that your relationship is solid, then you can be “the wind beneath her wings” and support her in her Majorcan adventure. As well as phoning, texting and e-mailing regularly, you might even pop over and visit her. If you do split up while she’s working abroad, then try to console yourself with the knowledge that it wasn’t a relationship with real staying power. It would be very sad, of course, but it would allow you both to move on and find relationships that suit you better. By the way, this isn’t titfor-tat. You chose not to enter the RAF - it wasn’t your girlfriend’s decision. You might have thought it was for her sake, but the decision was still yours in the end. Good luck. Christine

VAL SAINSBURY Keeping her finger on the pulse Email: val.sainsbury@canarianweekly.com

MEN and women with large waists have an increased risk of dying young, even if they are not particularly overweight! Worryingly the US study, published in Archives of Internal Medicine, suggests that really high waist measurements, equivalent to a UK size of 24-26 in women and XXXXL in men, appear to double the risk of mortality. The researchers tracked more than 100,000 men and women aged 50 and older over a nine-year period. They also found that in women, the link between a larger waist and a higher risk of death was strongest for those of normal weight. It seems so unfair, but

Don’t go belly up! even if you have a normal body mass index (BMI) but a big tummy, then you are just as much at risk as someone who is classified as obese with a large tummy. But the study’s authors aren’t sure why and say more research is needed to expand their findings. Dr Eric Jacobs and his team, at the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, examined the link between waist circumference and risk of death among the predominantly white participants, involving 48,500 men and 56,343 women, At the start of the study, the average age of the men

was 69 years and 67 for women. From 1997 until 2006, the deaths of any participants were tracked and the causes noted. A total of 9,315 men and 5,332 women died during this time. Whether participants were of normal weight, overweight or obese, researchers found that risk of death increased with increasing waist circumference. This risk increased significantly in men with waists measuring 43 inches or more, and in women with waists measuring 37ins or more. But only in men and

women with very large waists (47ins or larger in men and 43ins in women) did the risk of death appear to double during the nineyear study. The most common cause of death in those with the strongest link between mortality and waist size was respiratory disease, followed by cardiovascular disease and then cancer. The study concludes: “Our results suggest that,

regardless of weight, avoiding gains in waist circumference may reduce risk of premature mortality.” Dr David Haslam, chair of the National Obesity Forum, believes the research is important, saying: “This underlines the message that fat inside the belly is dangerous. “Even if you have a normal BMI and a big tummy, then you are just as much at risk as someone who is classi-

fied as obese with a large tummy.” Previous studies have shown that abdominal obesity is a strong indicator for the development of coronary artery disease. It is associated with insulin resistance and the development of Type 2 diabetes. The risk is associated with the fat stores, which are not just under the skin but deep within the abdominal cavity.

Why they’re batting a hairy eyelid! THOUSANDS of women crashed the Boots website as they clamoured to get hold of a new “miracle” eyelash thickener. More than 1,000 women had already joined a waiting list for the £39.99 RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum, when it went on sale recently. The “miracle” serum claims to boost the length and thickness of eyelashes by 50% with daily use. A tube of the serum was sold every minute in Boots’ stores as women dashed to the shops on lunch breaks, or on the way home from work, to snap up the new product. The website was so inundated with women trying to buy tubes of the serum online that it crashed under the strain. A spokesman for Boots, who are selling the product exclusively, said it had been one of the most popular lines they had ever stocked. The product could go on to

become an even bigger sensation that Boots’ flagship anti-aging serum, No7 Protect and Perfect. Yet it is also reported that growing numbers of women are turning to hair transplant surgery after damaging their natural lashes through repeat use of false ones and extensions. A specialist in intricate hair transplant surgery has been approached by more and more young female patients left with a bald patch on their eyelid. The glue used to fix the lashes can pull natural eyelashes out as the fake set is removed and, if repeated frequently, can stop hair growing. Such is the popularity of false eyelashes sported by celebrities from Cheryl Cole to former topless model Jordan (now known as Katie Price) that some women wear up to three pairs at the same time for maximum impact. Dr Bessam Farjo, of the Manchester-based Farjo Medical Centre, said: “We’re

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

seeing a significant number of enquiries from patients who have suffered from damage caused by repeatedly wearing false eyelashes. “As with any hair follicle, eyelashes will cease to grow if they are plucked out at the root repeatedly. “Hair transplant surgery may seem like an extreme solution, but in many cases it’s the only way to restore hair permanently.” His £3,000 procedure removes hair from the back of a patient’s head and implants it into the eyelid. The implants grow just like head hair and need regular trimming. The surgeon then threads the hair through the upper eye lid in the same spot where the natural eyelashes would grow. Any number of lashes, from just a few to up to about 50, can be “transplanted” this way, under a local anaesthetic. They are then cut to the appropriate length, and the patients has to trim them.

Food News Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck has once again waddled free of the chasing pack to be named the UK’s best restaurant.

www.canarianweekly.com

Got it quacked

The Berkshire eatery held off opposition from the likes of Gordon Ramsay and Raymond Blanc to hit top spot in the 2011 Good Food Guide. It is the third year in a row that Blumenthal, who has long held a reputation for culinary alchemy, has won the accolade. The Which? guide awarded the Fat Duck a rare 10 out of 10, describing it as producing “a procession of worldbeating dishes for the bedazzled throngs”. Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Road restaurant took second place for the second year running. Judges praised it as “the nearest thing to a worldclass restaurant experience currently on offer in the capital”. Top Ten Best UK Restaurants 1. The Fat Duck, Berkshire 2. Gordon Ramsay, London 3. Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Oxfordshire 4. L’Enclume, Cumbria 5. Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, Cornwall 6. Restaurant Sat Bains, Nottinghamshire 7. Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, London 8. Le Champignon Sauvage, Gloucestershire 9. Pied-a-Terre, London 10. The Square, London Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire took third place, while a pair of up-and-coming chefs rounded out the top five. L’Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, was number four on the list, while Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Cornwall came in fifth place. Ramsay’s flagship restaurant was therefore the only London establishment in the top five and one of just four in the top 10. Elizabeth Carter, consultant editor of The Good Food Guide, said: “Heston Blumenthal and Gordon Ramsay continue to delight us with their stuff of genius, world-class style and truly memorable dining experiences. “But we’ve seen significant changes in the UK restaurant scene over the last year. “A crop of talent has sprung up all over the country, pushing London restaurants out of the top spots with their culinary delights.” About the good food guide Since 1951, The Good Food Guide has been reviewing the best restaurants, pubs and

Leo July 24-August 23 You may be feeling as stuck in a rut as everybody elseall the others, but they appear to be able to do what they want. Don’t worry, Leo, your time is coming. Friday Monday offers you the chance to indulge in something you’ve always dreamed of, but, Just make sure you honour a financial agreement with a colleague please. Virgo Aug-24-Sept23 You must stop pretending to know everything and try, instead, to focus on the skills you already actually do have. You have spent many much of the past months trying to keep up with the Jones’s. But it’s not a race, and the sooner you slow down, the sooner you will get to see what a very enjoyable and fulfilling life you have. Libra Sept 24-Oct 23 Ideas that you have been having about your future may well scare your close ones, as they try to work out whether they are a part of the future new life you are planning. Try not to bite if they ask for reassurance. We all feel a little insecure from time to time, and all they are looking for is a little bit of insight into your thoughts and plans. Scorpio Oct 24-Nov 22 Yours is a sign that doesn’t do anything by halves, but your love life at this time looks decidedly messy. Scorpio. We all know that friends and family don’t always mix, but that doesn’t mean that you should make things worse by drawing a dividing line. They are going to have to learn together, so stay out of it. Sagittarius Nov 23Dec 21 Something you have been wanting does not seem to

be getting any closer, to you and you may be tempted to make some phone calls, or to visit someone in the know to find out how things stand. Be cool, calm and collected and the stars will reward you well. Friday Sunday is a good day for lifechanging news. Capricorn Dec 22Jan 20 You seem determined to spend some money in order to blow away the cobwebs of frustration that which have befallen you. The younger generation should be the perfect tonic to lift your spirits and, in fact, many Capricorn’s may well find out that they are about to become parents, aunties, uncles … or even grandparents. Aquarius Jan 21Feb 19 The stars are going to be makeing you feel as tif hough you are on a time limit, especially where relationships are concerned. Watch out for a loved one trying to make accusations against you that just aren’t true. The planets are making many of us a little more testy than usual. Pisces Feb 20-Mar 2 You appear to be more self- conscious than usual and, with the difficult aspect that Mmars is in, you may be tempted to push someone for an answer they he/she does not have. Accept the iinvites that old friends

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

Aries Mar 21-April 20 Be prepared for confrontation, and bite your tongue if dealing with people whom you cannot afford to fall out with. Mercury and Mars on Wednesday should give you the energy you will need to tie up an important financial and for many Aries legally- linked matter in your favour. Taurus, April 21May 21 You don’t seem to know what it is you want from close ones and you must not allow what is quite clearly an irritable mood to get in the way of what is really a very pleasing union in your life. The younger generation are going towill be trying to cause problems, but don’t let them pull the wool over your eyes in monetary dealings. Gemini May 22June 21 You don’t mean to get involved in other people’s lives, but you just can’t help it. However, advice that you have given to a friend is about to back fire on you as they he turns to you for an excessive favour. that is really of your own making. Look out for new faces entering your life and, possibly, your heart this weekend. Cancer June 22July 23 Your stars indicate that what you thought to be a dead- end relationship is actually a very well- matched union. Be prepared for a few arguments, though. If only you had both aired your feelings sooner, you could have avoided this unnecessary atmosphere of late. Pisceans prove great advisers.

Travel

Too old for cover? Old folk are penalised by UK insurance companies BRITISH pensioners who want to travel abroad are being hammered by insurance companies who charge exhorbitant fees or, worse still, refuse to cover them at all. Once you’ve 65, premiums hit the roof - and if you manage to reach 80, you’ll be lucky get cover of any kind. Angry Michelle Mitchell, of Age UK, says: “I can’t believe that in 21st century Britain, people are still refused travel insurance because of their age.” While most companies will offer cover to existing customers up to the age of 100, many simply ignore the over80s. In a secret shopping exercise, firms such as Halifax, Tesco, Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Admiral and Esure all refused to insure an 84-yerar-old man. He was told the upper age limit was 80, while Aviva were

Page 44

not interested in travel cover for the oldies, but said they would consider new motor insurances for drivers up to 84. Andy Goldby, director of motor pricing and underwriting at Direct Line said: “We will insure new customers up to the age of 89, but only if they can meet our underwriting criteria.” But with so many firms rejecting these folk, the poor old pensioners just can’t make comparisons to find the best deals. New anti-discrimination laws to prevent these practices are scheduled to be activated in 2012, but it looks now as though they won’t be carried out. “The proposal made by the last government to allow insurers to use age limits undermines the spirit of the legislation,” says Michelle. There is no medical evidence to prove that 65-year-olds post a higher risk than they did a year ago. Yet Moneysupermarket research shows that average

travel premiums jump more than one-fifth on your 65th birthday, and a further half on your 66th birthday. The average cost of travel cover rises from £52.65 at 64, to £64.79 at 65 and £98.15 at 66. Bob Atkinson, travel expert at moneysupermarket.com. warns: “People need to prepare themselves for these overnight hikes in travel insurance premiums.” When “Which? Money” car-

ried out a recent survey of nearly 100 yearly travel policies, only five of them covered those aged 80 or older. Peter Vicary-Smith, chief executive of Which? believes it is so unfair. “Restrictions imposed by insurers leave many struggling to pay increased premiums, just when they may need cover the most,” he says. According to insurance broker Peter Hayman, of PJ Hayman: “To maintain a com-

petitive edge, some insurers don’t want to cover people above a certain age. But agediscrimination legislation on the horizon may preclude insurers from having an arbitrary age cap.” The ban on age discrimination won’t come into effect until 2012. Yet the law will probably apply to work-related discrimination only. That means there is likely to be a specific exception, allowing age to be used when poroviding financial services where it is “fair and reasonable”. But raising prices randomly, simply because someone reaches 65 or 66, is unfair and unreasonable. And turning people down just because they’re 80 insults them. When Joyce Anderson, an 80-year-old with a dicky heart, booked a cruise to Barbados, she wanted good travel insurance. “I also have high blood pressure, and obviously expected to pay a hefty premium because of my age and health,” she said. “But when I

called Insure Direct for a quote, I was told they didn’t even want to insure me because of my age. So she turned to Saga Insurance. who set up her policy in a flash. “There was no question of age,” she adds. “The £500 cost was well worth it because my blood pressure shot up while I was abroad and I needed a fair amount of medical attention.” So what can older people do to find travel cover at a decent price? “Shop around,” advises Michelle Mitchell, of UK Age. “They can also contact the British Insurance Brokers Association, who will find them a local broker.” Will Thomas, head of car insurance at comparison site Confused.com, agrees. He also suggests that older people shouldn’t just go to an insurer specialising in old folk and assume they’re getting the best deal. “They shouldn’t rule out a better deal from a mainstream insurance company,” he adds.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

Reach for the sky LAST year, I wrote excitedly about an incredible new machine, which could run on the roads comfortably and take to the air just as easily.

But the Terrafugia Transition never took off, in a manner of speaking, because it was weighed down with legal problems. Now, however, the light aircraft that converts into a road-legal car will definitely go into production in America next year, thanks to

a special weight exemption by the US aviation authorities. It has already had one redesign, and the new one, currrently underway, means the Transition, retailing at around at £129,000 (154,000 euros), will be available late next year. Less than two months ago,

manufacturer Terrafugia received a significant boost when the US Federal Aviation Administration allowed it to qualify as a “light sport aircraft”. That’s the smallest kind of private aeroplane under FAA classification, with a maximum weight of 1,320lb. But the manufacturers found it impossible to fit the safety features, including airbags, crumple zones and roll-cage, which are required for road vehicles at that weight. However, the FAA have granted the Transition an exemption, enabling it to be classified as a light sport aircraft, despite being 120lb over the limit. Light sport aircraft licences require just 20 hours of flying time, making them much easier to obtain

than full private licences. With wings folded, the two-seater Transition can use its front-wheel drive on roads at ordinary “highway” speeds, at a respectable 30mpg. Once it has arrived at a suitable take-off spot (an airport, or adequately-sized piece of flat private land), it can fold down the electrically-powered wings, engage its rear-facing propellor, and take off. Its cruising speed in the air is 115mph, with a range of 460 miles, and it can carry 450lb. It requires a runway of at least one-third of a mile to take off, and can fit in a standard garage. Terrafugia say one of the major advantages of the Transition over ordinary light aircraft is safety because in the event of bad weather, it

can simply drive home instead of either being grounded or flying in unsafe conditions. Already, 70 people have ordered one, leaving a £6,650 (£7,997) deposit each. Good news is that deposits are held in escrow, so should the company go bankrupt before delivery, the money will be refunded. Unfortunately, top analyst Lewis Page fears this may be the case. He believes the delay could be longer that suggested, and that incurred costs could even stop the project altogether. Let’s hope he is wrong because the idea of a dual road/air machine seems like a lot of fun. It’s just a shame that when driving towards a traffic jam, you can’t just push a button and take to the skies.

Renault’s breath of fresh air RENAULT’S new Wind is a smart addition to the small coupé / cabriolet sector, except that it’s more a coupé / roadster. And with a hard-top roof that disappears in under 12 seconds, you can cope instantly with the worst the unpredictable British weather can throw at you. This makes it a practical, all-year-round car, but strictly for two people. Unlike rivals like the Peugeot 207 CC, there is no pretence of tiny rear seats that claim to fit another two passengers. But the key thing any coupé/cabriolet needs to succeed is to look the part, and Wind certainly does that, In recent years, the Nissan Micra CC and the Mitsubishi Colt CC have shown how difficult it is to package a bulky,

electric-folding hard-top and not have a huge backside. So Renault deserve credit for making this new model so distinctive. It has character rather than cuteness, yet it is a head-turner, despite being smaller than a Clio. Its muscular, sporty lines give it an edge over its rivals and the influence of the Renaultsport motor division, who engineered the car, is everywhere. Setting them loose on the Wind gives it plenty of fun factor. It handles well and is perfect for nipping in and out of town traffic. You can choose between a 1.2 or 1.6litre petrol engine. The 1.2 makes up for lack of power by its refinement and fuel economy of 44mpg, and reasonable CO2 of 145g/km. The 1.6 is a lot punchier, and performance is upped to 0-62mph in 9.2secs, with a top speed of 125mph and reasonable fuel economy of

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

40mpg. With prices from £15,500-£18,200 (18,63921886 euros), the Wind proves you can afford a stylish coupé/roadster with bags of character, without breaking, or robbing, the bank

Ket inspires super Superstars SUMMERLAND Superstars are one of only four sides with a proud 100% record after victory in the first big match of the new season in Division One. The new-look Superstars boast two new signings this season, and Ket maintained his good start with a smooth 7baller over Chris in the opening rubber against last season’s Division Two champs Hoops Bar. They rushed into an early 3-0 lead and never looked back, despite a strong Hoops finish which gave them a respectable 6-4 scoreline. With Penguin Craig still to return, the Summerland boys will be thereabouts at the end of

the season. Palms A, Bar 180 B and Tenerife Hammers A have also secured two wins from two games. In Division Two, Lupain showed true grit to fight back from 4-0 down to beat Toscales Tangos. Alex defeated Whippy in the final match to seal a 6-4 comeback and give Lupain their second win of the season. Four other sides are also still perfect: Legends B, Nauta B, Target Rangers and Bar 180 C, who edged out Hammers B 6-4. New teams Phoenix Potters and Gaffers gained their first-ever wins, and Bar Tasca are still unbeaten after a second straight draw.

180s. But Del Boy replied with his own maximum to earn his side a valuable 6-2 win. Moving back up to second, the Phoenix bar had a brilliant night, rocking away to some AC/DC while duelling it out with Target A. At 4-1 up after the singles they looked home and dry, but Target, with Grant in good form, pulled it back to 4-3. Super Steve-sub then came up with a magical 180 in the trebles and everyone’s favourite, Ashley, slammed in the double, making it 5-3 to the visitors. Tenerife Sons go up to fourth with a 7-1 bashing of the Strikers, with only Chuckling chimp registering for the losers. Bar Nauta A also won 7-1 over a gallant Target B, which keeps them in the hunt for the title. And

THE kind of Allsorts mentioned above are not the liquorice variety but the dartthrowing kind. And although liquorice is listed as being a cure for depression, it may have had the opposite affect last Friday night. Bob and the lads from Toscales had a sweet tooth as they made the marathon journey down to Cafe Rood looking for some bounty! Love hearts were exchanged before the match, but the San Lorenzo team’s spears were mint, turning legs to jelly with a gobstopping 7-1 victory. Exiles, still sitting top of the pile, had a tough match at the Surfers, especially as Abrigos man Andy hit two

another 7-1 win was recorded by Bar 180 A, their victims being Ourplace Flukers, now the bottom team. Heroes sports bar earned three points in their defeat by Ensecan, which kept them just above the relegation zone, and mid table Xmen won by the same score against Sundowners. All good things come to an end they say, and in Division 2, Barracudarts Boys dished out a first defeat of the season to Bar 180 B. The Golf del Sur outfit remain fourth, but they are being seriously challenged by Yelas Bar, who fought out a 4-4 draw with the impressive Tenerife Sun.

the bull was only slightly dampened by Batty Barb hitting double 7 to take the trebles leg for the Flames.

Premier League Preview WITH the World Cup thankfully being erased from the memory banks, it’s time to get back to the real joys of the footballing calendar. La Liga is a fortnight away, Celtic will surely win the coin toss over Rangers for the SPL, and this weekend it’s all about the return of the Premier League. Will Chelsea retain the title, can Fergie mould another team of OAPs ‘n’ hoodies, and will the Tangerines taste any sort of sweet success? Few would have seen Liverpool’s fall, Tottenham’s Champions League place and Blackpool’s promotion a year ago, but that will not stop me. I’m no Nostradamus. I’m not even a Mystic Meg, but for our money, this is what we can expect over the next nine months. ARSENAL Arsene Wenger has had an excellent summer. Firstly, he has been able to keep captain and talisman Cesc Fabregas after the traditional catcalls from Barcelona. This may be his last season, but he will feel like a new signing. Wenger has deftly dumped fossils William Gallas, Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre, while axing sub-standard Senderos, Merida and Eduardo. He has added Laurent Koscielny - a mustard centrehalf - and Marouane Chamakh could be the next Henry. Throw in the brilliant kids, a fully-fit van Persie and maybe even Shay Given, and you see a season of promise. Arsenal’s squad of players are as good as any - pound for pound - and they will be real title contenders. The Gunners’ five-year silverware wait will surely end in May. ASTON VILLA They were in turmoil before Martin O’Neill quit this week. No new signings, and vultures ready to steal the cream of their crop. I know I’m in a minority, but I’ve never bought the myth that is O’Neill. Gordon Strachan had the same success as O’Neill did at Celtic. Villa finished 6th, 6th and yep, you guessed it, 6th, in the three full seasons under the Northern Irishman. And

they will not better that this year. Much will depend on who comes in, who goes and what new blood they can afford. Villa’s youngsters need to step up, but a season of struggle looks assured. Top ten at best. BIRMINGHAM Second-season syndrome looms large over St Andrews. Ipswich, Reading and, recently, Hull are testament to what can happen after a fine survival season. The so-called billionaire Chinaman has been anything but, and the promised 40 million quid has never been produced for new signings. The Blues struggled at the end of the last campaign as injuries and suspensions bit, and they are even lighter on numbers this time around. The two signings have something to prove. Ben Foster joins after going from Man Utd No1 to No3 in a week, and 6ft 7in striker Nikola Zigic was hardly prolific at Valencia. So the goalscoring falls to the muchimproved Cameron Jerome. If they struggle at home, they will be in deep trouble. BLACKBURN Big Sam has quietly done a super job at Ewood Park. It’s easy to forget their top-ten finish last time. Excellent at home but soft away, it’s all about the occasion for Rovers. When they are up for it, they can test the very best. As always, there is no money to spend but the squad, and especially the first X1, are fine. They do lack goals and if the well-drilled defence start to creak, then they could easily

13 August 2010 - 19 August 2010

slide down the table. However, another mid-table finish and decent cup run beckons. BLACKPOOL I love Ian Holloway. The guy is a legend. What he did at Blackpool last season was a once-in-a-lifetime miracle. But the problem with miracles is they don’t get repeated. Jesus didn’t have to do the loaf-andfish trick twice. The Tangerines will do well to better Derby’s woeful points tally from a few years back. CHELSEA The double winners’ main target this year has got to be the Champions League. The golden generation is ageing rapidly, and this may be their last real chance. Joe Cole, Deco, Ricky Carvalho, Michael Ballack and Juliano Belletti have gone, while the replacements are temporary. Is there a big signing still up the Abramovich sleeve? If not, the Chelsea kids will get a chance to shine in the league as the “old legs” are saved for Europe. So it’s hard to see how they can match last year, but you can never write them off. Whoever finishes above Chelsea will win the league. EVERTON This could be a breakthrough season for David Moyes. For a manager of his talent to still be looking for a trophy is a crime. He has bought wisely this summer and, with his big guns back from injury, they could really hit the heights. There is no European action to distract; Arteta is fit and staying, while the return of

Jagielka is massive. They have two new strikers to bolster the roster and an easy start. Interesting. FULHAM Mo’s boys can be looked at two ways. Firstly, the only way is down after the best season in memory. Roy has gone, the expectation level is high and the squad is creaking. New blood is needed and big investment if they are to stand still, yet alone kick on. Or, they have a new fresh manager with a superb reputation. The club’s profile has never been higher: cash in the bank from the Europa campaign, and Chris Smalling’s move to Man United. Take your pick. LIVERPOOL When Liverpool finished second to Man United a few seasons back, who would have thought they would be 16-1 to win the league in 2010? Roy Hodgson has a massive job trying to succeed where Ronnie Moran, Graeme Souness, Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez all failed, by winning the title. He inherits a thin squad, but a decent starting line-up. The arrivals look good for a change and the capture of Joe Cole a genuine coup. Maybe the new face and voice will make it all click into place? MANCHESTER CITY Yaya Toure, Jerome Boateng, David Silva, Aleks Kolarov and Albert Rusnak have all joined and, if you believe the papers, every other half-decent player will be at Man City this year. Hands up if you know who will

be in the first X1 because I haven’t a clue. Who will get the gloves Given or Hart? Who will start up front? Will they be title challengers or also-rans? How many managers will they have this season? It’s going to be a long nine months at Eastlands. MANCHESTER UNITED “You don’t win anything with kids,” was the infamous Alan Hanson quote. I wonder if he will mutter it again this year. Sir Alex Ferguson has splashed the cash on the next generation of stars, ahead of what will be a rebuilding season. It’s surely the last hurrah for Giggs, Red Nev and Scholesy, and with long-term concerns over Hargreaves, Rio and Vidic, Fergie had to invest. But he has done so wisely. The signings look good and I’ve a feeling Berbatov will finally shine. NEWCASTLE Chris Hughton deserved all the plaudits for what he did last season, but he faces a bigger job in keeping the Toon Army up. Their squad is spookily similar to the one which went down and, with no money for quality reinforcements I see little changing. STOKE Tony Pulis continues to be the next Alan Curbishley. The squad is fine and Pulis has added Kenwyn Jones, who will relish his football at the Britannia. Stoke are designed for the lanky striker, and his goals will give them another mid table finish. SUNDERLAND I was going to tip them for a season of struggle, but Steve Bruce has done some shrewd business this week. Nedum Onuoha is a quality loan signing, as is Danny Wellbeck, who will help Darren Bent. Ghana captain John Mensah returns, and Bruce normally finds an unknown Central American diamond. This year he has bought four, and one will shine at least. The Black Cats will be top flight next season. TOTTENHAM Where are the signings? Harry loves a transfer, yet “Del Boy” has been quiet. Too quiet. Spurs need to strengthen ahead of a Champions League campaign, and the fans will want them firing in all competitions. The usual injury worries are

still at the Lane, so expect some last-gasp activity. It may take them a while to get going, but they cannot afford an Everton-esq start. Oh, and keep an eye on Peter Crouch in the Champions League. His scoring record in Europe is excellent! WEST BROM They are up and down more times than Jodie Marsh’s … you can work it out. So what is different this time? Erm, nothing! They still have no Premiershipstandard striker, or midfielder come to think of it. The signings look cheap and again they are budgeting for relegation. WEST HAM It’s simple. If West Ham are to stay up, they need to keep their spine. Green, Upson, Parker and Cole. So far, so good as they have not caved in and pleased the bank manager. But there is still a fortnight left until the transfer window closes. They are prepared, but Ben Haim, Hitzlsperger and Piquionne are back-ups in every sense of the word. The Hammers do finally have a proper manager. Avram Grant should see them safe WIGAN Very similar to West Ham in many ways. It’s vital they hang on to their key players, but that seems unlikely. They have spent a few quid, and Mauro Boselli is a massive gamble at six million quid. Defensively, they are still a nightmare. Last season they lost 9-1 and 8-0 and still survived. They can sneak the odd upset, and they look stronger man for man than some of the strugglers. It will be tight, but they must just survive. WOLVES Mick McCarthy delivered the Holy Grail by keeping Wolves up, and they will now be looking to kick on. The big boys have been kept at arm’s length in their pursuit of Kevin Doyle (assuming Liverpool don’t swoop late) and he will be partnered by Steven Fletcher this season. McCarthy has made some decent signings and the squad now looks up to Premiership standard. The fans will relish some meaty Midlands derbies and it could be mid-table for the Mighty Wolves.
