To hell and back! Chile miners are rescued after 69-day nightmare trapped underground THE incredible rescue story of 33 Chile miners, trapped for 69 days more than halfa-mile underground, came to a magnificent conclusion this week. Every miner was lifted to safety on Wednesday and Thursday from the bowels of a mountain at Camp Hope in what has been deemed The Greatest Escape. They were each taken by helicopter then ambulance to hospital for a thorough medical. A spokesman at the hospital, in Copiapo, said some of the miners were suffering from skin, dental and eye problems, as well as having breathing difficulties. He also said some had shown “slightly worrying psychological signs”, and added: “They have had to undergo two months of stress, but the majority seem to be dealing with this absolutely fine.” Doctors are most concerned about Mario Gomez, the ninth miner to be winched up. He is believed to be suffering from pneumonia, having already been diagnosed with the miners’ lung disease before the mine shaft collapsed. The rescue operation, planned over a 52-day period of anxiety for miners and their families alike, ran like clockwork, with each of the freed men being greeted by hoards of cameramen and press, and then their grateful families. Cheers rang out around the San Jose copper mine in the early hours of Thursday as 54-year-old shift foreman Luis Urzua, the real hero below ground, became the

last man to be hoisted to the surface to complete a rescue mission lasting under 23 hours. To the delight of their loved ones, the men were lifted one-by-one more than 2,000ft to the surface in a metal pod nicknamed “Phoenix”. The first to emerge was shy 31-year-old Florencio Avalos in the early hours of Wednesday. And, as the day unfolded, the speed of each rescue increased, reducing the time it took to bring each man to the top to just 10 minutes, which was quicker than ever expected. Also at the remarkable site was Chile President

Sebastian Pinera, who greeted each miner with a huge hug, as did his wife. He had become personally involved in the saga, putting his mining minister in charge of the operation, alongside the operations chief of the country’s biggest mining company, the state-owned Codelco. More than 1.2 billion people worldwide were said to have watched the rescue unfold, and a jubilant Pinero said: “This operation has been so marvellous, so clean and so emotional that there was no reason not to allow the eyes of the world, which have been watching it so closely, to see it.”

The President added: “It was a true rebirth, not just for the 33 miners but also for the spirit of unity, strength, faith and hope they have shown our country and around the world.” At 1.55am Mr Urzua, credited with keeping the men strong mentally and physi-

cally throughout their ordeal, arrived at the surface to a scene of “exhilaration, excitement and exhaustion”, according to Sky News correspondent Emma Hurd. He embraced the President as he reached the surface and told him: “We have done what the entire world was

waiting for. “The 70 days that we fought so hard were not in vain. We had strength, we had spirit, and we wanted to fight. We wanted to fight for our families, and that was the greatest thing.” The president replied: “You are not the same, and the Continued on page 3.

Go hug your wife and your daughter.” Although cramped and with a door that stuck occasionally, the Phoenix worked exactly as planned. Rescuers had estimated that it would take around 48 hours to get all the miners to the surface, but as the mission progressed it gathered pace. As they emerged, several men thrust their fists upwards, and Mario Sepulveda, the second to taste freedom, bounded out and led his rescuers in a rousing cheer. Franklin Lobos, who played for the Chilean national football team in the Eighties, even bounced a football on his foot and knee briefly to express his joy. This was the biggest event of all, and certainly the most dramatic ever to hit the small screen. Some 500 million people watched TV on 21st July 1969 as Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon But mind-blowing numbers tuned into The Greatest Escape in Chile, and already there is talk of a Hollywood film. Now that the rescue shaft at the San Jose mine has been sealed symbolically, all eyes are on what will happen to the miners next. None has reported serious medical problems, but psychologists are expecting all the men to suffer emotional trauma as the euphoria of their rescue wears off. Many of the miners have already spoken of their struggles with anxiety, and finding it difficult to sleep during their plight. Now, they will also have to grapple with the pressure of fame and celebrity as a curious world waits for them to tell their stories. They have already been flooded with offers of gifts, including iPods from Apple boss Steve Jobs, a trip to Greece, £10,000 each from a businessman and the chance to see Manchester United and Real Madrid football matches. The men are reported to have come to an agreement in which they will jointly write a book about their story and share the profits. They also intend to share the proceeds from any interviews and TV appearances. But Phillip Hodson, a fellow of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, warned that

for tourism

the miners faced a “long and difficult journey ahead” and added that their new celebrity status could be “poisonous”. The miners can thank Chile’s health officials and the Space Race for their survival, having been discovered after 17 days and nights without any communication. Engineers at the US space agency NASA were asked for their advice as the miners’ cramped conditions were deemed similar to those faced by astronauts. Agency experts then devised and helped build the rescue capsule that delivered the miners to freedom, and its dieticians used

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

decades of advances in space medicine to plan the diet that ensured they not only fitted inside the capsule, but avoided being sick while being winched up. Before their discovery, the 33 seemingly lost souls were forced to exist on a lessthan-meagre diet of two spoonfuls of tuna, half a biscuit and half a glass of milk every 48 hours. What made their plight even worse was that they could hear the drilling team searching for them, only to then hear the drill probe miss the chamber in which they were enclosed by a few feet each time. Another intriguing outcome of the rescue is that

one miner became a father while underground, and another was discovered to have a mistress, which did not please his wife! But three other men announced while still trapped that they wanted divorces, and scores of women have come forward claiming to be attached to miners in order to claim government hand-outs. One miner has a first wife he never divorced, the mother of a child he fathered several years ago, and a woman who claims to be his current girlfriend. All at the camp! That’s surely enough to make the Hollywood moguls come running.

COUNCILS will receive less from the Canarian Government to promote tourism outside of the islands due to budget cuts. The tourism budget for next year will be 63 million euros, an amount similar to that of 2003, seven years ago. This was reported by Canary Island’s Tourism Minister, Rita Martin, after the meeting that was held in the capital of Gran Canaria with the Minister of Tourism of the seven councils, which in addition to the budget cut s has addressed issues of the next exhibition of the World Travel Market in London. The minister explained that the budget reduction, which has been estimated at 34 percent compared to 2010, also affects the rehabilitation of public spaces in the tourist towns, but expects it to be compensated with a 42 million trust Plan to be provided to the Canaries. Martin explained that the budget reduction in tourism promotions will be linear and will affect more Gran Canaria and Tenerife, followed by Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, and later La Palma. Martin also indicated that the amount received by

councils is set depending on the accommodation on each island. In relation to air connectivity, although there has been an increase in air seats of 17 percent in the Canary Islands this winter, North Tenerife Airport experienced a drop of 13 percent, representing 80,000 seats less, especially domestic tourism, which damages Puerto de la Cruz, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. The airport of La Palma also experienced a reduction of 6 percent in air links, especially with Germany and Air Berlin, so the objective of the Ministry is working to reinstate these positions with the introduction of low cost companies. The Minister recalled that when she started as head of the Department of Tourism there was a budget of 115 million euros; improved air connectivity will be essential to try to attract a million tourists to the islands, as claimed by the president, Paulino Rivero. She has also indicated that it is necessary to reduce airport charges at the islands. Martin has also held that before the cut in the department is essential to work together the various administrations to work together.

There’s no end to inflation THE level of inflation in Spain over the past year has risen to 2.1%, which is the highest for nearly two years.

It was just above the 2% figure estimated by the National Statistics Institute (INE) at the end of September, even though inflation in June had dropped to 1.5% after three months of increases.

The INE attributed the annual rise to a gain of 6.8% in transport costs, and a 4.2% hike in housing. It was the highest figure since November 2008, when Spain fell into its worst reces-

Tenerife Cabildo, through its continuous modernization plan, has produced a guide to assist local authorities in the implementation of the Data Protection Act in the use of eGovernment. This project will benefit 24 municipalities of the island, and will allow citizens to interact with their councils

via the Internet safely. In this way, municipalities assigned to the plan will put in place controls to avoid penalties of up to 600,000 euros. The Island’s Planning Minister, María del Pino de Leon, said that this project will impact directly on citizens’ ; the municipalities will have the tools necessary to first undertake an analysis regarding personal protection and, secondly, to ensure legal security of citizens in their relationship with their council.“ According to the minister, “the council has been working for two decades in the modernization of the municipalities with the aim of achieving a more effective,

The purpose of this project is so that all citizens can learn about the services provided by local public administration, their rights and obligations in relation to these benefits.” The aim is the laying of foundations for electronic administration, there are six projects funded by the Government of the Canary Islands and the Ministry of Industry, supported by the councils themselves, related to the implementation of egovernment platforms, making catalogues, administrative procedures and standardization of forms and training of municipal staff, as well as on data protection.

Tenerife run to Marseille ending soon

RYANAIR has announced it will close its base at the airport in Marseille, France, on January 11, 2011, where the Irish company had placed four aircraft, it will affect 13 routes, including Tenerife, and entail the loss of 200 jobs. However, Ryanair will continue to operate ten routes to and from Marseille Airport from other bases. In a statement, the company said its base in Marseille fully complies with the European

directive on international transport, which allows workers to pay income taxes and the respective contributions in Ireland, as it is in this country where the company is centralized. “The French authorities have a different view and argue that workers should pay their taxes in France instead of in Ireland, although this is contrary to EU rules,” says the low cost airline. In this regard, the chairman of Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, described as “unwise” the decision of France, because it involves the loss of 200 jobs and closure of the 13

routes that the airline operates from that airport, as well loss of foreign investment and visitors for the area. However, O’Leary said the company will maintain its commitment to Marseille airport where it will keep 10 routes Brussels, Düsseldorf, Fez, London, Madrid, Malta, Porto, Rome, Seville and Valencia - which it will operate from other bases. The 13 routes closed from Marseille are:- Agadir, Brest, Eindhoven, Lille, Marrakech, Nador, Nantes, Palermo, Paris, Tangier, Tenerife, Tours and Venice.

It involves tour operators, travel agents, airlines, hotel chains, media, associations national and international organizations related to the world of tourism. Participation at this fair allows the archipelago to establish new contacts and analyze current market trends with the Russian segment, which has experienced significant growth in recent years and has positioned itself as a major source of tourists.

Another important point are the air links between this large tourism market and the archipelago. The touristic consortium Versa - Iberworld Airlines provides air link between St. Petersburg and the Canaries, with a capacity of 180 passengers. At this time seats on this flight are sold out until November. The CIS Travel Market has traditionally had a large participation and public attendance. Approximately 460 companies from 39 countries will showcase their tourism products and more than 10,000 visitors will tour the exhibition sector.

Spanish pair take Volleyball crown

Pelagie has gift of the gab Economy lifted by home sales LEARNING to speak Spanish really isn’t that difficult because many English words are similar. That’s the gospel according to French-born tutor Pelagie Weber, a qualified language teacher in English, French, Spanish and German. And she is convinced she can help anyone break through that language barrier without the process being too painful, even though many people have lived in the Island for years without learning the language. Pelagie has been a Tenerife

resident for 20 years and taught at Britannia School, from GCSE to A-level standard, until going private. In fact, she has taught mainly English people since then. She is happy to teach you anywhere - at home in a bar, wherever - and she is happiest with one-to-one or small group sessions. The location, duration and frequency of the lessons, and the speed at which you learn, are all tailor-made to suit you. “It’s never too late to learn,” she says. “Whether you are an absolute beginner or just want to improve your

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

Spanish, I can help you, and make it fun at the same time.” If the thought of sitting with a large group for lessons horrifies you, give Pelagie a call on 922 163 270 or 649 227 833, or email her at pelagiew@hotmail.fr for more details. She can also provide home tuition for schoolchildren in Spanish or French, and can provide translations of Spanish documents. Pelagie adds: “Spanish is such a beautiful language and for small groups, the cost can be as little as five euros each per lesson.”

SALES of Spanish property went up by almost one-third in August compared with the same month a year ago. It is a heart-warming boost for the down-trodden building industry, following the collapse of the market in 2008, which sparked the recession in Spain. In all, there were 43,817 property transactions in August, amounting to a 29.6% rise, while there was more good news concerning property sales in the first eight months of the year.

They went up by nearly 14% against figures for the same period in 2009. The collapse of the soaring Spanish property market, Europe’s fifth-largest, created the country’s worst recession for many years. It also sent the unemployment rate soaring through the roof at more than 20%, which was the highest record-

ed in the eurozone. The first quarter of 2010 gave little rise for hope, with a lukewarm increase of 0.1% in property sales, and the second quarter yielded just another 0.1% extra. But the latest figures are encouraging to say the least and, perhaps, something on which the economy can build on.

Independence of the Seas 700 cruise ship tourists went on excursions around the island, some preferring however to spend the day in the metropolitan area. The ship ‘Independence of the Seas docked Wednesday at the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife with 4,145 passengers from 24 countries and 1,365 crew members, 75 nationalities, making it the cruise with the largest number of people on board who

have moored at these facilities to date, as reported in a statement by Puertos de Tenerife. The ‘Independence of the Seas made its first stop in the port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife on 10 May 2008 on that occasion bringing to 3,600 cruise passengers and 1,200 crew. Owned by Royal Caribbean International, the ship was launched in April 2008, consisting at that time as the largest cruise ship in the world with a total tonnage of 158,000 gross registered tons.

London Firefighters to strike over contracts CHIC, friendly, warm and welcoming that’s how one customer described the new Glass Spider bar that opened in the Apolo Centre, Los Cristianos last week.

FIREFIGHTERS in London have voted to go on strike in a row over new contracts. Members of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) voted by more than 3-1 in favour of industrial action. In total, there were 3,482 votes to 943 - a 79% majority based on a turnout of 79%. The union has given London Fire Brigade until tomorrow to withdraw the contracts which re-employ firefighters on worse terms. The FBU says the new employment terms effectively sack workers, and will announce strike dates if the brigade presses ahead with the changes. FBU General Secretary Matt Wrack said: “This vote is a huge vote for strike action. “Firefighters hate going on strike, but they hate being bullied even more. “We are holding off announcing strike dates for 24 hours in order to give the London Fire Brigade a last chance to do the sensible thing and withdraw the letters of dismissal so we can return to negotiating on the question of shift patterns.”

Page 12

The row centres over the fire brigade’s plans to change the start and finish times of duty for its frontline firefighters by shortening the current night shift in favour of a longer daytime working period. It’s disappointing and saddening that the only losers in all of this will be firefighters. Firefighters have already been taking action short of a strike, including an overtime ban, since last month. Likewise, London Fire Brigade has withdrawn 27 fire engines from stations across the capital under contingency plans to deal with possible walkouts. Brian Coleman, chairman of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority, said the latest developments were upsetting. “It’s disappointing and saddening that the only losers in all of this will be firefighters. “A strike by the FBU will be unnecessary, unjustified and viewed unsympathetically by Londoners. “This dispute centres on proposed changes to make people safer.”

Proud owners of the new bar are Paul, Debbie and family from Sunderland. They have been holidaying here for years but living on the island for approximately seven months awaiting the right business opportunity.

The pair are expected to discuss the role American forces played in the death of British aid worker Linda Norgrove in Afghanistan. Ms Norgrove was killed after a US special forces soldier failed to see that she had broken away from her captors.

Greek riot police storm Acropolis

US General to discuss UK aid worker’s death THE TOP US general in Afghanistan has arrived at Downing Street to meet David Cameron to discuss the death of British aid worker Linda Norgrove.

Baton-toting police have stormed the Acropolis, clashing with government workers and blocking Greece’s most sacrosanct archeological site for a second day. The scuffles, watched by astonished tourists, erupted when police burst into the grounds of the landmark attraction through a side entrance. Protesters clung onto the gates, defying repeated orders to clear the entrance. At least 30 government

workers had occupied the Acropolis overnight, barricading themselves inside and changing the padlock on the main gate to keep police out. “A prosecutor was called in and orders were issued to clear them out,” deputy culture minister Tylemachos Hytiris told the Athensbased Skai Television network. Wielding batons and firing two rounds of pepper spray, police pushed protesters away from the entrance and grabbed at least two employees who were whisked off in handcuffs. A squadron of police offi-

cers remained at the gates, allowing tourists free entry to the 2,500 year old monument, Greece’s biggest tourist attraction. The culture ministry employees were protesting against plans by the government to scrap some 800 short-term contracts by the end of the month. They say they are already owed 22 months in back pay. Greece is in the grips of a devastating financial crisis that has forced the socialist government to implement draconian austerity measures. These include more than 9

billion euros (£8bn) in spending cuts in exchange for a 110 billion euro (£97bn) bailout. The package was authorised by the International Monetary Fund and the European Union to avert Europe’s first sovereign bankruptcy. Recurring protests and social unrest have caused immense damage to the Greek tourism industry and brought the country to a standstill on several occasions. It remains unclear whether the demonstrators will resort to further action.

Ms Norgrove, 36, was killed along with six of her Taliban kidnappers during a botched rescue attempt by American special forces in the east of the country. General David Petraeus’ visit to Downing Street comes as it was reported she was killed when a US soldier failed to spot she had broken away from her captors. The Guardian said she was already lying in a foetal position to protect herself when an American grenade was thrown during Friday night’s mission. The newspaper said it had established, from sources in Kabul and London, that the soldier who threw the device was facing disciplinary action over her death. US officials initially claimed Ms Norgrove was killed by a bomb vest worn by one of her kidnappers. The entire operation was reportedly watched on widescreen TVs at the command centre - which raises

questions about whether the American military was trying to cover up how she was killed. A joint US/UK investigation, led by General Petraeus - the supreme commander of Nato troops in Afghanistan - is underway to find out exactly how she died. David Cameron, who has already spoken to the general and President Obama about the incident, said yesterday: “It is an impossibly difficult decision to make about whether to launch a raid and try to free a hostage. “In the end we must all be clear: the responsibility for Linda’s death lies with those cowardly, ruthless people who took her hostage in the first place.” Ms Norgrove, from the Isle of Lewis, was working for the US firm Development Alternatives Inc (DAI) when she was seized by militants in Afghanistan’s Kunar province on September 26. During the meeting, Gen Petraeus will also be told about the PM’s planned cutbacks. There have been concerns in Washington that scaling back Britain’s military strength will have implications for the UK’s ability to support the US in present and future wars.

Weather fronts move AN award-winning BBC weatherman who was caught giving the finger live on air has been removed from his on-screen role. Tomasz Schafernaker is among several forecasters the Met Office has decided to move behind the scenes as part of cost-cutting measures. Although bosses would not confirm the Polish-born presenter was being removed, a source in the company said the 31-year-old was being shifted to off-camera duties. In August he was caught live on air making a rude hand gesture to BBC News Channel anchors Simon McCoy and Fiona Armstrong

They had said his forecast would be “100% accurate and provide all the detail you could possibly want”. When a flustered Schafernaker realised he had been caught on camera, he made an ineffective attempt to cover up what he was doing by scratching his chin. Our new contract with the BBC requires us to deliver continued high standards of accuracy and consistency within revised affordability levels He had previously hit the headlines when he referred to the Outer Hebrides and Western Isles as “nowheresville” during a live broadcast. A Met Office spokeswoman said she was unable to confirm reports that senior weathermen Philip Avery

and Rob McElwee would also be moving to off-screen roles. “The Met Office is pleased to have secured the BBC contract to deliver weather services across TV, radio, online and mobile channels,” she said. “Our new contract with the BBC requires us to deliver continued high standards of accuracy and consistency within revised affordability levels. “To achieve this we have employed a fair and open process to change Met Office staff roles and structure within the BBC weather centre.” Schafernaker began presenting on BBC Southeast Today in 2001 before joining the main BBC channels in 2006. He was named best TV

weather presenter at the annual Television and Radio Industries Club Awards this year.

A set of 50p coins to commemorate London Olympics THE ROYAL Mint is issuing a new set of 50p coins celebrating the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in 21 months' time. For the first time in the Mint's 1,100-year history, the coins have been designed by members of the public. There are 29 designs altogether - one for each of the different sports that will feature in 2012. As well as Olympic favourites like sailing, swimming and basketball, they show lesser-known sports such as goalball and boccia. All the designs have been approved by the Queen and the Treasury. A total of 87 million Olympic coins will enter circulation, so there should be more than enough to go round, says the Mint. There was no shortage of contestants wanting to make their mark on Britain's currency heritage. More than 30,000 designs were submitted earlier this year after the design compe-

Page 14

tition was announced. The winners come from across the UK and include a policeman from Manchester, a London journalist and a retired social worker from Derby. They were chosen by a panel of independent experts and representatives from the Royal Mint, London 2012 and the International Olympic Committee. A spokesman for the Mint said: "The release of the 29 Olympic 50ps is the largest simultaneous range of designs (we have) ever featured on a circulating coin. "Since the 50 pence piece was introduced 41 years ago, when decimalisation was established, only 16 designs have ever featured on the heptagonal coin."

Shortest man in the world! A Nepalese fruit seller’s son with the body of a toddler has officially become the world’s smallest man after reaching his 18th birthday. Khagendra Thapa Magar, who stands just 2ft 1.8ins (65.5cm) tall and weighs 12.1lbs (5.5kg), takes over from Edward “Nino” Hernandez from Colombia. Tw e n t y - f o u r- y e a r- o l d Hernandez, a relatively lofty 2ft 3ins (70cm), had held the title for just five weeks. It passed to a delighted Magar only after he was carefully measured and weighed by doctors and officials from the Guinness Book of Records. Magar, who lives near the picturesque Himalayan town of Pokhara in central Nepal, was tiny even at birth, weighing just 1.3lbs (600 grams). His father says he cannot explain why he never grew taller - his younger brother is

a normal height for a boy of 13. However, the teenager is believed to suffer from primordial dwarfism, a condition can reduce life expectancy to as little as 20 years. Magar’s father said: “He was so tiny when he was born that he could fit in the palm of your hand, and it was very hard to bathe him because he was so small. “Sometimes it made us sad when he was growing up because we thought he would never be able to do normal things like ride a bike or drive a car, but now he is so popu-

lar, and that has made us happy.” Magar rarely speaks himself but earlier this week he told journalists he wanted a remote-controlled car for his birthday - and that he would rely on his future wife for transport. “I’m hoping to marry in two years’ time, when I am 20,” he said. “I’ll sit in my wife’s handbag and travel the world with her.” Last month Magar travelled to New York as part of a publicity trip organised by Ripley’s Believe It or Not curiosity museum.

Whilst there he posed alongside a life-sized figure of the tallest man in history - the 8ft 1in (2.47m) American Robert Wadlow. Magar also travelled to Italy earlier this year where he met He Pingping of China, who was the world’s shortest man until his death in March. The pair appeared together in a television show. Guinness World Records says the shortest man ever is thought to be Gul Mohammed from India, who was said to have measured just 22.4ins (57cm), although this was never independently verified.

‘Lost Michelangelo’ found hidden down back of sofa A PAINTING a family had stored behind their sofa for over 30 years could be a lost Michelangelo worth £190m. To retired pilot Martin Kober, the family heirloom picturing the Virgin Mary holding the body of Jesus was simply referred to as “The Mike”. The work, passed down from his great-grandfather, had hung in the living room of the family’s home near Niagara Falls, upper New York, for decades. It was even knocked off the wall by a stray tennis ball before being wrapped up, undamaged, and placed behind the sofa in the mid1970s. Twenty-five years passed before Mr Kober realised he was sitting in front of a gold mine after investigating the painting which had finally been passed down to him. An expert on the Italian

master was consulted, whose deep-set scepticism vanished after x-ray tests were performed. Antonio Forcellino, Michelangelo biographer and art historian, is convinced the lost work - The Lost Pieta - is genuine. “I had assumed it was going to be a copy,” he told The Sunday Times. The X-rays that have been done are key. They reveal his changes of mind ... it couldn’t possibly be a copy by

another artist. “In reality, this painting was even more beautiful than the versions hanging in

the work was made by the hand of the Italian master. They reveal his changes of mind; he moved the face of Christ, covered up grass to the left of the Virgin and left an area next to her right leg unfinished. “It couldn’t possibly be a copy by another artist.” Now safely stored in a bank vault, the painting will no longer be relegated behind Mr Kober’s furniture. Once its place in art history is verified, it will tour the world’s galleries with no indication the family will cash in on the ultimate prize found down the back of the sofa.

Home Wi-Fi users urged: ‘Please be more vigilant’

LAX SECURITY on home wi-fi means that nearly half can be hacked into in less than five seconds, according to a study. Almost half the 40,000 networks identified in six UK cities had no password or the most basic form of security encryption, research for card protection and insurance company CPP found. In the “ethical hacking” experiment, researchers spent half an hour in each city using freely available software to work on as many unsecured

Rome and Florence. The truth was this painting was much better than the ones they had.

“I had visions of telling them that there was this crazy guy in America telling everyone he had a Michelangelo at home.” The 25in by 19in work is believed to have been painted in 1545, and - once confirmed as genuine - will hang as one of the few surviving oil paintings the Renaissance great created on wood panel. Mr Kober said research suggests it passed from Italy to Croatia, then on to Germany, before coming into his ancestors’ possession on America’s East Coast. Forcellino is in no doubt

wireless connections as possible. Almost a quarter of the private networks - 9,249 - had no password, despite 82% of Britons believing their network is secure. But the study found even password-protected networks were not safe, with hackers able to breach a typical password in seconds. The hackers were also able to “harvest” usernames and passwords at a rate of more than 350 an hour when sitting in town-centre coffee shops and restaurants. “This report is a real eyeopener in highlighting how

many of us have a cavalier attitude to wi-fi use, despite the very real dangers posed by unauthorised use,” CPP identity fraud expert Michael Lynch said. “We urge all wi-fi users to remember that any information they volunteer through public networks can easily be visible to hackers. “It’s vital they remain vigilant, ensure their networks are secure and regularly monitor their credit reports and bank statements for unsolicited activity.” Jason Hart, the hacker who carried out the experiments and the senior vice president

of digital identity company CryptoCard, said: “All hackers require is a laptop computer and widely available software to target their victims. “With the growth in the number of smartphones and wireless networks, it has become far easier for hackers to crack usernames and passwords, allowing them access to emails, social networks, and online banking sites and even to assume the online identity of their victim. “It’s vital that both businesses and individuals think very carefully about network security and what information they provide when going online.”

Pension savings tax benefits are cut for wealthy THE GOVERNMENT has announced it will slash the annual amount of pension savings on which people receive tax relief from £255,000 to £50,000 to save £4bn a year. It also plans to reduce the lifetime pensions savings allowance that benefits from tax relief from £1.8m to £1.5m from April 2012. High earners will continue to be paid tax relief on pension savings at the highest rate at which they pay income tax. However, the changes are still a blow for the middle classes just a week after the Government said it would no longer pay child benefit to higher rate tax payers from 2013. Ministers said the plan would only affect around 100,000 people, 80% of whom earned more than £100,000 a year. The annual saving of £4bn from the changes is slightly higher than the £3.5bn that it was estimated would be saved through the previous government’s reforms. Labour introduced complex changes under which people earning more than £150,000 would have had the level of tax relief they received

gradually reduced to 20%, despite the fact they paid income tax at 50%. These proposals sparked outrage from the pensions industry, with commentators warning that the rules would be complex to administer and may put people off saving through a pension. The changes announced by the coalition will be far easier for pension schemes to manage. Financial Secretary to the Treasury Mark Hoban said: “The coalition Government believes that our system is fair, will preserve incentives to save and - compared to the last Government’s approach - will help UK businesses to attract and retain talent.” But David Hanson, Shadow Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury said the move will hit families on modest incomes very hard. “We support the principle that pensions tax relief should play a part in getting borrowing down. “But under our plans noone earning under £130,000 would lose out. “Now everyone’s at risk because the Government is taxing on the basis of people’s wish to save for a pension, rather than because they are high earners.” The new rules have been

welcomed by industry bodies and business groups though. The CBI has said the announcement is not as bad as feared considering the Government had considered making the allowance as low as £30,000. Deputy Director-General John Cridland said: “It rightly heeded warnings about the impact that restrictive regimes can have on pension saving, and these new proposals are a significant improvement on the approach proposed by the previous government, which was simply unworkable. “We particularly welcome the Government’s commitment to consult on how to proceed with changes to the lifetime allowance, and to consider delaying this change until 2012.” Andrew Tully, senior pensions policy manager at Standard Life, said: “An annual allowance works in the same way as Isa limits so is simple, clear and easy for people to understand. “The allowance of £50,000 allows the vast majority of people to save as much as they want, when they want.” The Government plans to launch a consultation next month on allowing people to meet any tax charges they face out of their pensions.

Bobbies on the tweet ONE of Britain's biggest police forces has taken to Twitter to highlight the amount of time its officers are forced to spend on "social work". Officers from Greater Manchester Police are tweeting details of every call they respond to in a live 24-hour blog. The blog started at 5am today, and by 8.30am they had logged 360 calls from the public. Many of these appear to be of a trivial nature, ranging from a woman in Bury who had put the wrong type of fuel in her car to advice on how to deal with an unwanted guest. One incident concerns damage to a lamp-post in Tameside and call 349 reports

suspicious noises in a loft in Salford. In two hours, the force had made 22 arrests. Chief constable Peter Fahy said he wanted the public and politicians particularly - to see what officers deal with on a daily basis. "Policing is often seen in very simple terms, with cops chasing robbers and locking them up," he said. "However, the reality is that this accounts for only part of the work they have to deal with. "A lot of what we do is dealing with social problems such

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

as missing children, people with mental health problems and domestic abuse. "Often these incidents can be incredibly complex and need a lot of time, resource and expertise. "I am not saying that we shouldn't deal with these types of incidents, far from it, but what I am saying is that this work is not recognised in league tables and measurements - yet is a huge part of what we do." The event comes as police face massive budget cuts, with the Government's spending review next week.

Banksy tags credits for ‘Sweatshop’ Simpsons GRAFFITI artist Banksy has created a title sequence for The Simpsons showing animators working in a sweatshop. The episode, which aired in the US on Sunday, begins as normal with the Simpsons family going about their daily business although there are hints of Banksy’s subversive artwork. His tag is scrawled across a poster of Krusty the Klown, while the traditional ‘blackboard gag’ sees Bart writing “I must not write all over the walls” - which is written all over the walls. But it is after the cartoon family settle down on the sofa to watch TV that the intro takes a sinister turn. Chilling music is played during a minute-long animation showing sweatshop workers painting scenes for the longrunning series in a dirty, ratinfested cavern. Kittens are thrown into a wood chipper to make stuffing for Bart Simpson toys and

a giant panda is used as a cart horse. A unicorn is seen chained up as his horn is used to punch holes in Simpsons DVDs. The extended sequence was inspired by the fact that the show outsources much of its animation to South Korea. “This is what you get when you outsource,” joked The Simpsons executive producer Al Jean. The episode, entitled MoneyBart will air on Sky1 HD on October 21 at 7.30pm. A Sky1 spokesperson said: “The Simpsons is known for being irreverent and playful with the brand.” Street artist Banksy, whose real identity has never been confirmed, is known for his subversive and satirical graffiti art which appears in public places without warning. He recently directed and appeared anonymously in the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.

Spy chief says ‘Cyber attack threat is real’ BRITAIN is facing a “real and credible” threat of damaging cyber attacks, the head of the UK’s electronic spying agency has warned. GCHQ director Iain Lobban said the nation’s future economic prosperity depended on developing effective defences against a cyber assault. The massive growth of the internet had opened up new areas of vulnerability with opportunities for attack by

both hostile states and criminals, he said. With the Strategic Defence and Security Review due to be published, Mr Lobban called for the government and the telecommunications industry to work together. “It’s not a narrow security issue for the spooks - but a wide economic issue that demands a holistic response,” he said. “In order to flourish, a knowledge economy needs to protect from exploitation the intellectual property at the heart of the creative and high-tech industry sectors.

“It needs to maintain the integrity of its financial and commercial services.” While GCHQis more usually associated with electronic intelligence-gathering, Mr Lobban stressed it also had a security role, referred to as “information assurance”. He said there had been “significant disruption” to government computer systems caused by internet “worms” - ones that had been deliberately targeted and others picked up accidentally. There were about 20,000 “malicious” emails on government networks a month,

while intellectual property theft was taking place on a “massive scale” - some relating to national security. The increased use of government services online with the prospect of £100bn-a-year in tax and benefits payments being processed online - added to the security challenge. While Mr Lobban did not go into detail about the threat to the UK’s critical national infrastructure, he said that it was “real and credible”. He demanded a swifter response to match the speed with which “cyber events” happened.

Restraining order means twist to Liverpool saga WH Smith boosted by air and train travel RECORD sales in WH Smith's travel division have helped the high street retailer to beat its forecasts with a 9% rise in annual pre-tax profits. The entertainment and stationery retailer says its pretax profits of £89m for the year ending August 31, 2010 are above expectations. However, revenues slipped to £1.31bn from £1.34bn and at High Street stores total and like-for-like sales were both down 4%. The company's travel division delivered an impressive performance, with operating profits rising by 10% to £53m and accounting for 51% of profit from trading operations. "The division is well-placed for recovery in air passenger numbers," the company said. Chief Executive Kate Swann's strategy is based on cutting costs and improving gross margins by focusing on more profitable products, better sourcing and better control of markdowns, rather than driving top-line sales. She has restored WH

Page 18

Smith's focus on core products, placing less emphasis on entertainment products such as DVDs, computer games and consoles. "We are a resilient business with a strong and consistent record of both profit growth and cash generation and are well-positioned for continued growth in the future," said Ms Swann. The company has opened more air, rail and hospital stores and now has 16 units internationally. The board has also announced the return of £50m of cash to shareholders through a rolling share buyback programme. The figures illustrate a dramatic turnaround by WH Smith after it was voted one of the worst shops in the country in May. A Which? survey named and shamed companies according to their service and quality. Critics said WH Smith had become a shadow of its former self with drastic cost cutting leaving many of the stores messy and dirty with poor variety in products.

The Liverpool FC sale saga has taken another twist after owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett won a temporary restraining order to block a takeover deal. After a day when the High Court ruled the club could be sold to the owner of the Boston Red Sox, a Texan court has granted the order and the American businessmen are now seeking $1.6bn in damages. The pair have claimed to be the victims of an “epic swindle” - although it is not immediately apparent how a ruling in Texas can affect the London judgement. Lawyers for Mr Hicks and Mr Gillett have attacked the club’s biggest creditor, Royal Bank of Scotland, claiming that it has used chairman Martin Broughton and the other independent directors as “pawns”. In a statement calling the episode a “grand conspiracy”, law firm Fish & Richardson alleges RBS has “improperly used its influence” to prevent any sale that would allow Mr Hicks and Mr Gillett to recover any of their initial investment

in the club. Referring to the restraining order as “unwarranted”, a statement on Liverpool’s official website said the club “will move as swiftly as possible to seek to have it removed”. Earlier, Mr Justice Floyd ruled, after four-and-a-half hours of arguments, that the American duo had been wrong in their initial attempt to frustrate the sale of the club. Mr Hicks and Mr Gillett, who are facing losses of around £140m, changed the club’s board of directors last week in a bid to derail the club’s sale to New England Sports Ventures (NESV). It is now impossible to imagine a sale being completed by Friday, when Hicks and Gillett have a deadline to repay more than £200m

owed to RBS. Proposed new owner John W Henry has been in London for a meeting of the Liverpool board. According to the club, it was decided at that board meeting to complete the £300m sale to NESV. At the High Court, Mr Justice Floyd also rejected applications by the owners for an injunction to halt the sale negotiations until they had held further discussions over any sale agreement. “I am not prepared to grant any relief. If I did it would risk stopping the sale and purchase agreement going ahead,” he said. “I will be very pleased when the process is complete,” Mr Broughton said, adding that he had found “the right owners” in NESV.

A bid by the Singapore billionaire Peter Lim, valuing the club at £320m and pledging a further £40m for new players, has failed. However, the statement from Law & Fisher has alluded to another party - as yet not made public - offering a deal worth between £350m and £400m. RBS had set a deadline of this Friday in its bid to be repaid more than £230m. There were noisy scenes outside the court when more than 100 Liverpool fans mobbed Mr Broughton, singing: “We love you, Martin, oh yes we do.” Security guards tried and failed to move the crowd blocking the entrance as they broke into the Liverpool anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Simple explanation to buying property FOLLOWING my last article regarding the purchase of property over here, I would like to include a couple of concepts as a dictionary. The words are in Spanish with a short English translation. These words are very common in purchasing properties, banking, mortgaging and, taxation, and are not so easy to understand and explain, even in Spanish. You may want to keep this Canarian Weekly issue, just in case one of these words crops up again. I would like to reiterate that this is just a general idea, as it is almost impossible to summarise these concepts in few words. Amortización (repayment or redemption): The refunding of a loan (fully or partially) as per the agreement signed with the bank. The repayment can be monthly, yearly or every six months. In the case of a mortgage loan, the word means the redemption of a loan. Amortización Parcial: The refunding (fully or partially) of the loan before its deadline. It is subject to commission, which depends on the interest rate of the loan). Arras Penitenciales (deposit or guarantee deposit): Amount the buyer gives the vendor as a guarantee of payment of the property before a deadline. If the purchase is finally completed, the “Arras” are taken as part of the price. If not completed through the purchaser’s fault, he loses the deposit. But if it is the vendor’s fault, he has to refund double that deposit. Avalista (guarantor): Person who acts as guarantor of a loan, and assumes the responsibilities of payment if the debtor fails to repay the debt and its interests.

Cancelación (cancellation, payment): The cancellation of the mortgage because of the payment of the debt. Capital: Amount equivalent to the main mortgage loan. It is the total of the amount borrowed, without including interest. Cargas (charges): Limitation to the dominium of a property. They are stated in a public document and registered at the Land Registry. For example: mortgage, usufruct. Certificación Registral (Land Registry Certificate):

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

Document issued by the Land Registry that states the legal situation of the property. It contains a description of the plot, says who owns it, and whether or not there are charges. Comisión de Apertura (commission or bank fee): Sum paid at the time of signing a mortgage loan as payment of the bank’s administrative costs. It is paid once in the life of the loan, and it is a percentage of the total amount of the loan. Comision De Subrogacion

(loan’s subrogation fee): Percentage to be applied on the pending loan capital if the debtor changes his bank in order to improve the loan’s conditions. Cuota (instalment): In a bank loan, the “cuota” is the instalment you have to pay (monthly, or every six months), including capital and interests. Remember that in the Community of Owners, the “cuota” is the percentage you have within the complex. Garantía Personal (personal guarantee): The guarantee

given by the debtor with his present and future personal assets to secure the fulfilment of the obligation. In some cases, the personal guarantee is give by a third person (who is not the debtor). Gastos (costs): This word is included in all transactions. Every time you buy anything, there are “gastos”. This would be “gastos de gestión”, “gastos de notario” and a long list. Gastos de Gestión: Those originate in notary fees, land

registry fees, tax payments,etc. Gastos de Registro (Land Registry fees): Costs charged by the Land Registry to record the Title Deed of Purchase, and Title Deed of Mortgage.

Marilyn pins it down at last!

SUNDAY’S Fun Golf day at Los Palos attracted a healthy gathering of 30 players, and a special bonus for the ladies. At long last, after what seemed an eternity, the

Nearest the Pin contest for ladies was won. Take a bow, Marilyn Pendleton! As usual, everybody enjoyed the tournament, and special thanks go to sponsors Jill and Malcolm Maddock. Jack Fisher and Jenny Meesham took the main hon-

ours, with Sam Stitt and Mark Watson second and Bernard Welsh and Nathen Croft third. The gentlemen’s Nearest the Pin award was picked up by Kevin Thomas, while the Booby prize went to Keith Bryer and Luke Clark. Mick Croft, a Fun Golfer for

many years, is returning to the UK to go into the hotel business, and everybody wished him all the best for the future. The next game is scheduled for Sunday 14th November, and for tee times and any further information, contact Clive on 922 797 640.

‘Four-legged’ funsters will put big smile on your faces WOULD you like to see the funniest thing on four legs? If so, then you must see John Sharples and Barry Pugh as Bitter & Twisted. They put on a highly-entertaining and colourful show for all the family and have won countless top variety awards in the UK and the Canary Islands. Their headquarters are at

Page 20

The Majestic Cabaret Theatre in Puerto de la Cruz, where they have ten different shows with over 120 numbers, and each one with its own unique costume. Acts of this calibre are in short supply and you should not leave Tenerife without seeing them. There is the opportunity to be entertained by this

dynamic duo, here in Playa de Las Americas, on alternate Wednesdays. John and Barry, who make 90% of their own costumes, with immaculate attention to detail, appear in the square at the heart of Torviscas, on the left-hand side just before the Orlando apartments. It is surrounded by a number of bars and eateries,

including Sinatra’s Lounge Bar, (606 868 049) Pablo’s (922 715 217) Twelve Bells (617 989 774) and Casa Tres (922 716 627). The evening is compered by Alex, from the Animation Team of the nearby complex, and there is an exhibition of flamenco dancing while they slip into a different costume for their next routine. Animal refuge K9 are indebted to the bars for having a collection during the evening, and customers are always generous, with donations which usually total over 85 euros on each occasion. The fun starts at 8pm, and you are advised to buy your ticket before the actual night as demand is always huge. Reservations can be made at any of the bars mentioned. Further information is available from Karen, at Sinatra’s Bar, on 606 868 049, or email her at ktsinatra@gmail.com You cannot fail to be entertained by these guys, and you are guaranteed to laugh yourself silly!

New German homes for doggie couple TWO two lucky waifs have said goodbye to Granadilla refuge centre Aktiontier after six months and are now installed in their new German homes. The German-funded sanctuary, based at Accion Del Sol, does its hardest to match dogs correctly with new owners, and these dogs will be much happier living in a cooler climate. This Sunday (17th Oct) comes the much-awaited Oktoberfest - an afternoon of fun and games, and the odd drink or two - and all are welcome to enjoy a day out there with the 170-odd homeless dogs. Accion del Sol is open from Monday to Friday,(3-6pm), and you can view the superb

facilities there, and even walk a dog or two. The refuge is situated at exit 51 on the TF1. Follow the signs for ITER, the Eolica windmill farm, and the centre is directly under the windmills. Marion, who runs the place, can be contacted on 922 778 630. Aktiontier’s Tenerife Fitness club for dogs, owners and friends, is meeting on Thursday (21st) at Torviscas in the carpark by the Moonlight Bar, near to where the old market use to be. Come along and enjoy a stroll along the seafront with your dog. It’s great fun and good exercise for you and your dog. And you can make new friends at the same time. For more information on the Fitness Club, please call Karen (687 905 511) or Danni Byrne (619 008 035).

Home is needed for hunting dog ONE of our regular readers has sent in a plea for Bambi, her small podenco, which is a Canarian hunting dog. She is about seven and has lived with the family as a pet. However, she has a natural instinct to hunt, and has

recently turned her attention to the local cats. The owner writes: “As we live on a complex, I have no other option but to rehome Bambi to someone who would like a lovable and affectionate pet. You must have either a large, enclosed garden or finca - and definitely no cats!” Anyone interested in Bambi should call 619 176 220.

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

Dear Government of Chile… SO it all went well, and I am happy to say that all 33 miners trapped half-a-mile underground in Chile were all rescued. I have to be honest with you regarding this week’s column. I sat up until 2am on Thursday waiting on the last to be brought up. I fell asleep and only found out that it was all successful at 11am. I had two drafts written for this story: Happy and sad. It had to be done as I look ahead - and just in case something went horribly wrong, I was ready with a written tribute! But I’m happy to see it went fine. So the heroes also in this story of humanity are the workers who took part since it all started, and the Government of Chile. So, in an open letter from

Page 36

me, if they can rescue all these fine men, I would like them to rescue a few things for me. The Commonwealth Games: The days of everyone getting as excited about these are now gone. It was there, second only to the Olympics. All the athletes trained for years, not only to get gold but to be on the telly as well, so all their friends and family could see them from home. But obviously, the interest died after all the bad publicity concerning the dire conditions around the athletes’ village. We seem to hear about the winners when the news shows have nothing else to report on. When you are shifted on to the red button, you know it’s going to be tough to get an audience. By the way, congratulations to Team Northern

Ireland, who won bronze for shooting. Yes you read that right … SHOOTING! With all the training we have had in Northern Ireland, you would expect us to have bagged the gold! Daybreak: The new ITV breakfast show. It’s a shambles, and after all the money pumped into this farce. Not only for sets, but the millions paid to main presenters Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley. They have decided to have

an open studio so we can all see the London skyline. Lovely sight it is, too. But did not one of the design team notice that October was just around the corner? It will be pitch black for the next six months in the morning! Viewing figures are pathetic, now going down to 700,000 for a flagship breakfast TV show. I never thought I would say this, but even Lorraine Kelly is looking and sounding good in the mornings. Indicators: Something needs done to imprison drivers who never indicate where they are turning. I am not afraid to say that the majority of these idiots are locals. They just don’t seem to care at all. I have lost count of the many times I have had to swerve from a moron turning left or right, without telling me by using the blink-

ers that come as standard to every car in the world. The roundabout is the worst case of terrible driving. The time I spend waiting for cars going around and around again, and not indicating, drives me mental. How hard is it to simply push up or down a device that is stuck to the steering wheel. Lazy, inconsiderate morons! Flies: Is it just me, or these horrible things moving in with their relatives? I have no idea why they are around us all the time. In the last couple of weeks, they have decided to take over my place. I don’t have a dirty house or leave food around, so why are they there? I am sure evolution is playing some kind of sick joke on us. They gave us puppies and dolphins to look on as sweet, so to balance that they give us flies to annoy the hell out of

everyone. My three-month-old making cute noises: Our Taylor has found his voice and is using it all the time. For the first few days, listening to “goo-goo, ga-ga” was the best thing in the world. But now he wakes up at 7am and makes these noises for over two hours. I need my sleep, I love my sleep and I do love my son. But he needs to go! If it keeps up, I will be looking for an apartment so he can sleep alone. He never shuts it, and I am about to tell him to do one. So as you can see, dear Government of Chile, it might be a lot to ask. But after what you have done in the last few days, it seems nothing is impossible. You can contact me via Oasis Fm as I don’t like to give out my mobile number. Thank you, Joe

SUE MCDONALD Common Sense Furnishings Email: sue.mcdonald@canarianweekly.com

Find your own balance HAVING a day off for the national holiday this week gave me the opportunity to watch some of those home makeover programmes that I usually miss during the day. And I’ve got to say, I didn’t like some of the results! Okay, maybe the designers are trying to show off what they can do. But I saw 3D wallpaper, a Sixties-style spotted rug and a striped sofa, and that was all in one room! It is actually quite fashionable nowadays to have several different patterns in the same room, and having everything matching is probably a bit twee. But in my opinion, this idea should be restricted either to large rooms, or they should have another connection, like all having the same colour tones, even though the pattern is different. A lot of the rooms were also over-cluttered with personal effects and decorative items. This can easily happen in your own home as well, as items get accumulated, and yet more photos added. Sometimes, it is a worthwhile exercise to stand back and have a proper look at all

the items you have in your rooms, and either remove some, or move them around to get a different effect. At the other end of the

design spectrum is minimalism, where the furniture is very straight, modern and simplistic, with very little in the way of decoration and

absolutely no clutter. That look might be fabulous for a show flat, or people with OCD, but is probably not very practical for most of us

in our everyday lives. It certainly wouldn’t survive long in my house! Most of us will find a balance in the middle of these

two styles, where our living spaces are not over crowded, but we are able to have our personal possessions around us.

Tales of tiles in your new-look bathroom LAST week, we dealt with an easy, inexpensive way of refurbish-

Page 38

ment your kitchen, and the same applies to the bathroom.

There’s no need to have a boring old white bathroom, because there are so many cheap options these days

regarding tiles or colourful, moisture-resistant wallpaper. Or both! You can also upgrade your taps if they’re looking a bit tatty, or plain old-fashioned, and a jazzy new shower curtain, or a glass-screen replacement, wouldn’t go amiss, either. But the main items, assuming you are going to keep the bath, which is the most important feature, are the walls and floor surface. For the floor, switch to a soft, vinyl covering, which is easy to lay and gives a nice, contemporary feel to the room. Finish that off with a luxury bathmat to add even more warmth. As for the walls, break them up with tiles, using a different colour for top and

bottom, for a two-tone effect, and make them even more distinctive with a fancy border tile dividing them in the middle. In Tenerife, especially, tiles are extremely cheap if you look around, and they are not so dear, either, in the UK. For a more fashionable feel to the room, however, you could experiment with a mixture of tiles and wallpaper, or even mosaic tiles Obviously, the areas exposed to water, such as the bath, shower cubicle and sink, must be tiled and sealed comprehensively. But in other areas, wallpaper or mosaic tiles could give your bathroom a really dramatic effect. Another good idea is to break up the expanse of wall space with a few mirrors,

and place a few well-chosen pictures around as well to provide a good talking point for visitors. If you still have some spare cash at the end of all that, a dropped ceiling with concealed lighting really does add a touch of class to the proceedings. Okay, there is a danger that your heart can rule your pocket as you get carried away with the new look. But brightly-coloured accessories, such as a window blind to go with matching towels, and a heated towel rail, can really add those smart, finishing touches. So, whether or not you are careful with how you spend your money, you’ll have a new bathroom in no time.

DAVID HUDGELL Getting to the root of your gardening problems! Email: David.hudgell@canarianweekly.com

It’s early Christmas at garden centres

IN A RECENT article in Horticulture Weekly it says that “most garden centres have opened or are close to opening their Christmas displays.” It would seem that the Church and retailers are at odds over this. “The Rev Dr Richard Cleaves of Highbury Congregational Church, in Carlton Street, Cheltenham, said: “The sooner you start your preparations, the more you miss the magic of Christmas when it comes. “The message of Christmas is about God coming into a world of hardship and even violence and coming alongside people in their difficulties and being with people who find it very difficult to celebrate and have joy in their hearts. “What I like to do is to celebrate advent for the four Sundays leading up to Christmas and then have a really big celebration.” Mr Cleaves said he would celebrate advent from the fourth Sunday before Christmas.

He said: “I wish all our businesses well because these are difficult times for them and they need trade, so I hesitate to criticise them.” The Rev Wendy Ruffle of Tewkesbury Abbey added: “It’s a little early at the moment to be putting decorations up. “The church likes to start thinking about Christmas at the end of November, when Advent starts. I can understand that there’s a lot of pressure on the retailers to start early. “But it seems to get earlier and earlier each year and from a faith perspective we like to start it for advent.” Gloucestershire County Council Conservative group political assistant Richard Coates added: “It winds people up and I think everybody hates it at this time of year. “People always hate that Christmas gets closer and closer, but to start putting decorations up in October is ridiculous. “To leave it until December would be a better way of doing it.” Meanwhile, garden centres are not extending the autumn planting season,

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

with Christmas displays often taking over from horticulture in September, say experts. Consultant Eve Tigwell said: “Christmas opening is getting earlier again. Retailers find a gap after the summer holidays in September when they are not selling much. But there is so much more to autumn than just Christmas. I’m in Denmark next weekend and their garden centres will be stuffed with autumn and winter plants. There are exceptions but garden centres need to have good plants all year round. Tigwell said berries, autumn foliage, autumn and winter flowers and plants with interesting bark should be on display “and not just pyracanthus and skimmias.” GIMA director Neil Gow said: “It’s down to the individual business. Where they are getting it wrong are the ones shifting from summer to Christmas and ignoring gardening. I’m not saying putting out Christmas out early is wrong-it’s right because you will get sales, but don’t do it at the expense of something else.

If the weather is right there is serious money to be made at this time of year and until mid November. Gow said his Burcot Garden Centre has had cards and wrap out since August, starting a week before 2009. He opened Christmas a fortnight earlier than 2009 on 4 October “but not at the expense of gardening”. Garden Centre Group chief executive Nicholas Marshall said: “We’ve started to merchandise Christmas but are merchandising from the back. I’m old-fashioned in that I think people go to garden centres at this time of year to buy plants so grottoes and Christmas merchandise will not be the obvious first offer. Last year 10 days of snow at Christmas 2009 hit houseplant and giftware sales and restaurants so “compared to 2009 we’re expecting better”. New Hopetoun Gardens owner Dougal Philip said: “The more interesting question is why do not more garden centres put as much effort in to their planterias as they do for Christmas.” Source Horticulture Weekly.

Curator Rosie is leaving AFTER nearly nine glorious years as the Curator of London’s oldest botanic Garden, Rosie Atkins is stepping down. Sarah Troughton, Chairman of Trustees, says: ‘The Garden has been transformed under Rosie’s leadership. She has made a vital contribution in promoting this historic Garden to a wider public keen to learn and experience the world of horticulture in all its forms. Her professionalism and enthusiasm have been infectious and everyone involved with the Garden will miss her very much’. ‘It has been a great privilege to have worked in the Garden which is as relevant today as when it was founded in 1673,’ says Rosie Atkins. ‘I am particularly proud of the Horticultural Trainee programme, started in my first year, which has now launched twelve remarkable gardeners into the horticultural world’. This summer a Jamaican Provision Ground was created at Chelsea Physic Garden to mark the 350th anniversary celebrations of the birth of Sir

Hans Sloane, the Garden’s benefactor. The display includes many of the medicinal and exotic plants Sloane brought back to Britain from his historic voyage to the Caribbean in 1687. This year also saw the launch of the Chelsea Physic Garden’s adult learning programme. Rosie Atkins launched the highly successful magazine Gardens Illustrated in 1992. She has been a member of RHS Woody Plant Committee since 2002 and she is a Fellow of The Linnean Society. Rosie plans to devote more time to voluntary work, which includes serving on the Council of the Royal Horticultural Society and chairing London Gardens Network. She is also a trustee of Great Dixter Charitable Trust and Gardening for Disabled Trust. Chelsea Physic Garden attracts some 45,000 visitors a year plus nearly 3,000 students from schools around London. It also has a growing Friends and Patrons scheme. The Trustees will be advertising for the post of Curator of Chelsea Physic Garden.

Plant technology ACCORDING to first choice leisure a device has been developed by a company in Japan to help make gardening easier. The DoCoMo garden sensor delivers information to experts about soil quality, temperature and moisture who will then advise gardeners on how to care for their plants. It works by being inserted into the ground near to wear plants are growing and the device is completely wireless and shaped like a four-leaf clover.

The product is intended to help people succeed in the garden, be they beginners, owners of garden sheds, or more well-seasoned growers looking for extra tips. Meanwhile, according to the Independent, a company in the US has created a similar product which will provide its advice through a specialist website. Recently, Bunny Guinness of the Telegraph suggested that the hit-and-miss nature of gardening in the UK is part of its appeal. In my opinion what a great stocking filler, just need to find where you can buy it from.

CARL PATTISON from Robot, answers your hair questions

DANNI BYRNE Keeping you fit Email: danni.byrne@canarianweekly.com

Email: carl.pattison@canarianweekly.com

Short, chic, sexy, wearable! Does flabbiness come with ageing? NOT so long ago, we talked long hair, and how it could be styled, cut, coloured, etc. Now it’s the turn of the total opposite. We are talking short, short and sexy, short and chic, short and totally wearable for everyone. Gone are the days when short meant unfeminine. I would rather see short hair on a woman - well-groomed, cut, coloured, etc - than long, scruffy hair in a “Tenerife ponytail”. If you don’t have time to style your hair, or simply drag it back into a ponytail, ask yourself: “What’s the point in having it?” So you can straighten it once a month on a night out? Come on, if you have good hair then why not look your best every day? Going short can be a trauma for some, but it’s hair, it grows! You don’t wear the same clothes everyday so why the same hair? I get told all the time: “I want a total change, but leave my length because I need to tie it up for work. Okay. No1 - I can work miracles. No2 - I strive to keep my clients happy. No3 - I’m NOT Paul Daniels. Think about what you are asking for, as this is a change without changing anything. It doesn’t work like that. Take a look at my examples of what I see is lacking here in Tenerife, and that is S-T-Y-L-E. My examples are no fuss, simple to achieve and always look Hot! The secret is in the cut. These styles, following

Page 40

the shape of your head, will fall into place, regardless of wind, rain or shine.

This is so chic, so ‘now’ and will suit most faces. It is mega simple to style and looks good on any colour. Its versatility means you can lift the fringe for a cool quiff, slick back for drama or flick out for softness. Who says short is boring?

This classic shape still oozes style and sophistication and, when cut correctly, this shape literally turns heads. Any of my clients with this shape tends to keep it for years. It simply doesn’t date. The dramatic shape just falls into place and, with effortless blow-drying, stays put all day. This graduated bob is adaptable, cuttingwise, with the addition of shorter fringes, or even layers, to give oomph! It really works well with one uniform colour to really strike out, and suits most faces, especially long or square shapes. With this striking, platinum blonde and this great undercut

crop, this really makes a statement. Okay, it’s not for the faint-hearted, but how can anyone say this isn’t feminine? The under-cutting of this style gives a soft but raw edge to this very versatile crop. The longer top section makes it so easy to change the shape and direction of the cut. Style up and backwards for a softer look, central for a semiman hawk, or flatter and forward for a more ruffled look. Whichever you choose, you can guarantee this will always look stylish with minimum fuss and styling. Keep the colour simple, too, and avoid highlights on this style because block-colouring works best, be it one tone or a slice of another colour. If you decide to go for a shorter look, first of all think about how this is going to look with your face shape. How it will blend with your clothing etc, but don’t jump in headfirst as it could take years to grow back. As before, visit your salon to discuss the pros and cons of a new shorter you. Take in their advice and listen to their ideas on what would suit you best. As one of my clients said, after having to have her damaged hair cut off: “Going short is the best thing I ever did to my hair.” Maybe it will work for you, too!

Q: I am 68 and in great physical health. I exercise twice a week, but I am getting flabby anyway, especially in the arms and thighs. Is this inevitable with ageing? A: Flabbiness, especially in the arms and thighs, occurs in part because of a syndrome called sarcopenia, which means age-related muscle loss, combined with the loss of elasticity in the skin. The loss of muscle mass is not inevitable and to preserve it, you can do cardiovascular exercise and weight-lifting, or resistance exercise training. The government recommends resistance exercise training to avoid both sarcopenia and obesity as a person gets older. If you have never done resistance exercise, it’s best to start with a trainer to avoid injury. Resistance training has been shown to increase muscle mass, even among those in the 70-90 age groups. We now have an ageing population, combined with an epidemic of obesity in the UK. It is

a phenomenon now being called sarcopenic obesity: as people get older, they are getting heavier and losing muscle mass. A healthy diet, along with aerobic and resistance exercise, is the antidote. It may also be possible to prevent most of the sarcopenia seen in the older population, if resistance exercise training is incorporated into a workout routine two to three times per week, especially for perimenopausal and postmenopausal women and older men. Not only is weight-lifting and weight-bearing exercise important for your muscles, it is also important for maintaining your bone mineral density, which decreases in women dramatically at perimenopause. In addition to exercise, a healthy diet with adequate amounts of protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can enhance muscle and decrease body fat. All these dietary and exercise recommendations will help with mus-

cle mass and can prevent sarcopenia. Q: What types of food should you eat or avoid to lose weight around your tummy? B: Fat that accumulates around the vital organs and around the mid-section is known as visceral fat. It’s the most harmful type of fat because it produces inflammation, which affects the rest of the body and leads to a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. To reduce weight in this area, it is important to go on a diet that includes plenty of fruit and vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains, and to reduce portion sizes and, therefore, caloric intake. To lose one to two pounds per week, you will need to reduce your caloric intake by 500-1,000 calories per day. To hasten the movement of visceral body fat, it is also important to exercise -aerobically and with weights - five or more times a week, and for 30-60 minutes at a time. Make sure your diet is high in fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains, and that your fat intake is mostly unsaturated, such as the kind found in olive and canola oils. Make sure you incorporate cardiovascular exercise with resistance training. This will help you build lean muscle and lose as much fat as possible. You might even consider enlisting the help of a trainer. Abdominal exercises will help tone your muscles, but they won’t help you preferentially lose fat from the belly area.

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

MANY of us have enlivened salads with bean sprouts at one time or another to add more texture and flavour to the dish. Yet health experts have issued a warning that this vegetable, usually associated with Chinese recipes,

Uncooked bean sprouts spark salmonella scares could be linked to a series of salmonella cases in the UK. The Health Protection Agency, which identified 125 cases of the Salmonella Bareilly infection in the past two months, advises that raw bean sprouts must be washed and cooked before eating, unless the label says “Ready to eat”. The organisation normally sees fewer than ten salmonella cases a month, yet that number of people alone fell ill with salmonella

poisoning at a Manchester wedding in August, and an 87-year-old woman died. Professor Qutub Syed, head of the investigating Outbreak Control Team, said: “Questioning people with confirmed Salmonella Bareilly infection produced some evidence of a link with bean sprouts. “We have now isolated salmonella from a bean-sprout sample, which is an important development in the investigation.”

The HPA’s Centre for Infections in Colindale, north London, identified 102 cases in England, three in Wales and one in Northern Ireland, while 19 cases were confirmed in Scotland. Prof Syed added: “It is also important for people who prepare meals in catering establishments, and in the

home, to keep raw bean sprouts separate from other salad products, including the ‘ready to eat’ variety, to avoid the risk of cross-contamination.” Salmonella bacteria are commonly found in the gastro-intestinal tracts of wild and domestic animals and birds, especially poultry and, occasionally, in humans.

Salmonella Bareilly is a strain of the bacteria which causes gastro-enteritis in humans through consumption of contaminated food. Infection with salmonella can cause watery and sometimes bloody diarrhoea, abdominal pain, headache, nausea, vomiting and fever. Illness can range from mild to severe.

Light nights add up for heavyweights WATCHING telly or using a computer into the early hours may contribute to obesity, because of the light factor - and late-night snacking.

Professor Randy Nelson, a researcher from Ohio State University, said: “Light at night is an environmental factor that may contribute to the obesity epidemic in ways that people don’t expect.” The research is reported online in the journal

Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. Prolonged computer use and TV viewing have already been identified as obesity risk factors. However, experts had until now assumed that this was linked to a lack of physical activity.

Scientists believe these nocturnal viewing habits can disrupt metabolism by tempting people to eat at the wrong times. The evidence comes from a study of mice by scientists, which showed that animals subjected to light at night put on weight. Over a two-month period, they gained 50% more body mass than mice given the same diet but exposed to normal night and day cycles. Light at night caused the mice to eat at inappropriate times for their metabolism, said researchers. A similar effect might also be seen in humans, who eat late-night snacks in front of the TV or computer.

Food News

www.canarianweekly.com IT IS ALWAYS wonderful to return to a favourite haunt and, on this balmy Thursday night, we find ourselves back in The Bistro in Los Cristianos. The always-friendly and incredibly-efficient staff welcome us, and we are ushered to our seats outside on the terrace, where we order a rich red wine and decide on what to eat. So many starters so little time: should I have the pate, the prawn cocktail or soup of the day (cream of leek and potato by the way)? No, it’s tonight’s special for me - garlic bread topped with bacon and pineapple, covered in melted cheese. And for my partner - smoked duck breast, served on mixed leaves with a homemade plum jam. Both dishes were spectacular, from the beautiful, smoked flavour of the duck to the sweet and savoury of my choice. Now, as I have noted in the previous reviews, it is extremely difficult to go past the huge piece of belly pork from the seven- euro menu, but on this occasion the decision was made for us as they had sold them all. And that proves two things: you really need to book a table in this ever-popular restaurant and, more importantly, all the food is freshly prepared that day. So, after much deliberation, we decided on our main course. A perfectly-cooked fillet steak in the bistro’s very own strawberry, brandy and cream sauce for my partner, and chicken breast with Serrano ham, in a succulent creamy cheese sauce, for me. Both were served with potatoes of our choice (and what a choice, I might add) and crisply-cooked vegetables. The dishes were both superb, especially the contrast of the steak with the strawberry, which was a beautiful mix of texture and flavour. Onward to desserts. One of the reasons I really rate this restaurant, as I said before, is the freshness and diversity of the dishes served. The dessert menu is a prime example of this, with weird and wonderful concoctions

that just work to classic favourites. For the sweet tooth, there really is nowhere else. I went for a surprisingly light lemon and lime bread and

butter pudding, and my other half decided on a stunning lemon meringue cheesecake. Again, both were second to none in presentation and taste. I would like to conclude that this restaurant never fails to impress me, from the staff to the outstanding quality of the food. And I’m sure that co-owner Barry, who sadly died this year, would be extremely pleased to see that standards haven’t diminished in the slightest.

So to Lorraine, Kelly, Debs, Rob, Abby, Derrick and, of course Mike, thank you for a glorious evening and see you soon. The restaurant is situated just along from the entrance to the underground car park in Los Cristianos. Incidentally, Christmas bookings are been taken now, with a three-course adult meal for 42 euros and children at 25 euros. Telephone 922 795 823 for bookings, or email www.thebistrotenerife.com for more details.

Horoscopes of the week September 24th-October 23rd An exciting week is forecast for you as you finally get the chance to find out the real story behind last week’s rumours. Aries hold the best news, so seek them out. It could just make all the difference between success and failure in your work. You may find out who your true friends are. SCORPIO You don’t seem to know how to make a friend happy, even though he/she has recently gone through a pretty major life change. Just be yourself and that person will soon start to come round. Promotions and new jobs link to adverts you read in the next few days, and maybe those rumours you’ve been hearing are true. SAGITTARIUS Make that apology you know is owed because it will save you a lot of time and energy later in the month. Faces you meet at this time are set to play a major part in your future. Not that you will be worrying as the coming week holds a lot of fun. Be nice to Scorpios as they hold the key to promotions. CAPRICORN There are not enough hours in the day for you at the moment because all your dreams finally seem to be showing a chance of becoming a reality. Working overtime can gain you the attention of important faces in your career. And if your boss is an Aries, so much the better. AQUARIUS Lost items are set to turn up just when you least expected them to. You may

have to pay back some money to a friend before you were ready to, but it is sure to be worth it for the sake of your union. New flirtations are more compatible than you think. Good news from Venus should be winging its way to you PISCES Solo work paths are favoured and hold the key to those riches of which you dream. You don’t seem to be feeling on top form, but maybe if you worked on the problem rather than ignoring it, you would not feel so vulnerable. Travel is knocking at your door and you really should answer that knock. ARIES You may think you are on your own in a personal worry, but you could not be more wrong. Just mention it to your close ones and you will soon see that you have more than enough support to plough on. Friends turn into lovers for many of your sign this weekend. TAURUS Putting in some overtime can gain you the attention of powerful faces. You’ll have to try to be a little more tolerant to a loved one, who seems intent on pursuing a long-held dream. The sooner you give them the help they require, the faster they will tie things up. There could be some good news concerning finances.

GEMINI In your eyes, it’s still party time. Don’t be afraid to call that person you met last weekend because it could well turn out to be a match made in heaven. Wear green for luck in financial dealings. It could help you win over those difficult faces who made for such a hard start to the month, and boost your finances. CANCER You don’t seem to hold the same amount of respect for a person you used to aspire to follow in work. You are fast discovering how much you know, and exciting offers in your career are just around the corner. Luck in your career links to a call you have yet to return, so make sure you pick up that phone. LEO You must not keep flirting with that person you fancy because you know he/she is not free and you could get a reputation if you carry on. You find yourself spending much of your time thinking about the past, and of a person who is no longer around. This could well help you make that allimportant decision in love you have been so stuck on VIRGO Foreign accents and names prove lucky in your career. Don’t hold a grudge against a friend because you have been guilty of acting in a similar way to yourself. You may want to remember the old saying that what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, and vice-versa. You could see an improvement in finances next week.

Watch out waiters: Brits fight back in restaurants the TripAdvisor®, world’s largest travel site, has announced the results of its panEuropean Food on Holiday Survey. With over half (53%) of Brits considering a gastro getaway in the next 12 months, and a third (31%) claiming to have chosen a hotel based purely on its foodie reputation, it’s clear the nation’s gastronomic holiday habits have changed dramatically over the last few years. The TripAdvisor Food On Holiday Survey, carried out with over 3,000 European travellers, reveals that Brits are the most adventurous in Europe when it comes to food. “Our research not only shows that British travellers should no longer be the butt of culinary jokes but also that Brits are no longer prepared to ‘put up and shut up’ when faced with bad food,” explains TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma O’Boyle. When Good Food Goes Bad

Page 44

With news last week that a Bulgarian hotel has been sued by almost 300 British holidaymakers after they were struck down by a gastric illness, it’s

perhaps no surprise that the TripAdvisor survey found: · Over a third (36%) of Brits has had their holiday ruined by a bad food experience.

· Half (48%) of Brits have experienced undercooked food while dining out on holiday, 12% have encountered dirty premises, 10% found

insects in their food and 6% a hair. ‘Reserved Brits’ Now First to Complain Dining out on holiday should be a pleasurable experience but what happens when things go wrong? The TripAdvisor Food on Holiday survey unearthed some surprises. Despite the British reputation for not complaining it is actually the Italians who are most likely to say nothing if unhappy with a meal: · Only 11% of Brits would keep quiet if unhappy compared to 34% of Italians and 26% of Spanish. Only German diners are less likely to keep quiet (9%). · Just 8% of Brits have ever left a restaurant on holiday without paying the bill, but that is still more than most of our European cousins – less than 4% of German, Italian and Spanish holidaymakers have done so. · One in 10 Brits would ask to speak to the chef if unhappy, compared to a more confrontational 33% of French diners. Chips? No Thanks, I’ll Have

The Fried Tarantula The research also reveals that the stereotype of British holidaymakers stuffing their suitcase with tea bags and baked beans is no more. British tourists are actually the most adventurous in Europe when it comes to trying bizarre local delicacies: · When faced with the prospect of sampling delights such as sheep eyes, fried tarantulas, camel humps and jellyfish less than a fifth (17%) said they would not try any of it. · Compare this to a horrified two thirds (64%) of Italians and a third (33%) of Germans. “Holidays provide a perfect opportunity for trying new foods and it’s great to see British travellers embracing local delicacies. For years other nationalities have derided the British taste buds reluctance to try new cuisines. Let’s hope this marks the demise of the old ‘chips with everything’ reputation,” continued TripAdvisor’s Emma O’Boyle.

Lexus spark baby boom! THERE’S no doubt that the Toyota motor company are king of the hybrids. And a new baby, the luxury-brand Lexus CT 200h, sets a benchmark for their prestige rivals. It has taken a while for motorists to catch on to the hybrid technology following the arrival of the Prius in 2000. Various upmarket car-makers offer excellent build quality and desirable badges on the bonnet, but they simply cannot match the Lexus-type hybrid technology across their ranges. Lexus always lacked a small hatchback family car to rival Audi A3, BMW 1-Series, VW Golf and Volvo C30, all of which appeal to buyers downsizing from larger saloons, or hatchback buyers who want that special seal of approval. But this stylish CT200h hatch, which goes head to head with the competition, is the first hybrid car to be offered in the luxury, compact market. It is a crucial introduction, and Lexus expect this baby CT

five-door hatchback to represent 60% of their sales in Europe eventually. No wonder, because buyers at this level appear to want a hybrid. Toyota claim that Prius owners who want to move up often desert the brand because there’s nothing for them to buy. Financially, the Lexus IS saloon is within reach, although offering only petrol or diesel engines, while the hybrid Lexus GS comes in at a hefty £41,814. So the CT will provide the

necessary stepping stone between the Prius and the Lexus GS. But among those prestige rivals from Audi et al are some impressive turbodiesels, so why should you opt for a Lexus machine which is slower, has poorer performance and forces you into having an automatic gearbox? The CT shares the same petrol engine/electric motor combination as the Toyota Prius which, while boasting excellent emissions and fuel economy, is hardly known for

its driver involvement and enjoyment. Lexus insists that superior ride and handling were of paramount importance when developing the CT, but the written statistics aren’t brilliant. The 1.8-litre petrol engine and 60kW electric motor take the car from 0 to 60mph in 10.3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 111mph. Those figures are fair, but unlikely to have buyers gasping. What will, however, are the CT’s emissions and economy

figures. Lexus claim an average fuel consumption of 68.9mpg and emissions of 96g/km, and the baby CT’s running costs are 25% lower than equivalent diesel hatches. The ride, handling plus road and wind noise of the Prius are hardly anything to boast about. But Lexus insist they have put far more soundproofing inside the CT, making it more refined than the Prius. From a standstill, the Lexus initially feels identical to its Toyota twin. You move off in electric mode, with the engine starting up seamlessly as you need more power then the brakes regenerate the onboard batteries. A dial displaying Charge/Eco/Power shows the effects, good and bad, of your right foot, with extra read-outs showing which engine (petrol or electric) is providing your progress. As on the Prius, the system makes you think long and hard about how you drive as you strive to be as smooth as possible to improve economy. Yes, the CT is a better drive than the Prius. It’s more comfortable, more refined and quieter, but this is no driver’s car in the same way that an IS saloon can be. but

it’s fair to say that an automatic A3, 1-Series or Golf would probably be more involving. Aside from how it drives, though, buyers get a good deal of exclusivity because the CT will never sell in the same numbers as its rivals. There’s a clear, smart interior, immaculately built and well laid out, plus a competitive level of space front and rear. Adults over 6ft tall may feel a bit squeezed in the back, but it’s no worse than a Golf or A3. How you feel about this new baby Lexus will depend on how much you value driver enjoyment. Some of the competition will put a bigger smile on your face, but they will also put a substantially bigger dent in your bank balance. The Lexus goes on sale next March with prices ranging from £23,485 to £30.635 (26.924-35.121 euros), and Toyota should be applauded for sticking with hybrid technology. They offer it as a unique selling point, and an eco-friendly alternative to diesels and upcoming all-electric cars. They also believe the CT 200h will start a quiet revolution, and who can argue with that assessment?

Mighty new Atom’s a pocket rocket! NOBODY has ever complained that the lightning-quick Ariel Atom is sluggish, and the proof is there for all to see! But that hasn’t stopped Ariel from building an incredible new 500hp V8 Atom, capable of leaving even a Bugatti Veyron for dead.

This mean machine is, quite possibly, one of the fastest road-legal cars ever made, and it mocks the overweight, over-complex and over-priced Bugatti by virtue of traditional British ingenuity. Okay, the Bugatti might beat the Atom on top-speed bragging rights. But 200mph in a Bugatti is boring, while 200mph in an Atom? The only problem will surely be finding

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

something to top that adrenaline rush. The Somerset-based Ariel company have been working on the V8 Atom for some

time, and now they have released full details of this limited production, £150,000 pocket rocket. And it’s an absolute monster.

There are a lot of stats to wrap your head around, but this one seems to sum up it up best: the V8 Atom produces 900 horsepower per

ton. By comparison, the Bugatti Veyron produces around 530 horsepower per ton. There’s more, lots more but that’s for another time!

Tenerife have to win reunion of old boys Barcelona B 3 CD Tenerife 1 THIS was much better. A battling performance, lots of grit and passion. But still no win, and not even a consultation point. Mikel’s rare second- half goal gave Tenerife hope at 2-1, and they shipped the third only after flinging bodies forward chasing an equaliser. But it’s another three goals conceded, and the problems in defence have not been rectified. Tenerife drew praise from the national press and pundits, but after just seven matches, the season is already at a crossroad. Thankfully, the newly-introduced play-off system has opened new doors. Sixth place could mean promotion, and that is still a fair target. But so is safety. Tenerife have one point and are a few results from leaving the drop zone. There is little to choose between much of the teams in this league, so it is always hard to break clear, with teams constantly stealing points from each other. Home form is everything, and this Sunday's match (kick off 5pm) is now must-win. The visitors are Numancia, who are a decent yardstick. The clash will be a strange one for many of those on show, because Tenerife can count seven former Numancia players among

Page 46

their ranks. Luia Garcia, Sergio Aragoneses, Dani Kome, Gregory Beranger, Carlos Bellvis, Julio Alvarez and Mikel Alonso have all played in the Numancia red.

Beranger played and Alvarez scored, in fact, in a 2-0 win in the Heliodoro only a few seasons back. Numancia that day were managed by Gonzalo

Arconada who, as we all know, has just been fired by Tenerife. Numancia’s manager, Juan Carlos Unzue, had a two-year spell as Tenerife’s keeper in

the mid-Nineties. And to complete the occasion, former favourite Jose Antonio Culebras is back. He left in the summer after four years and was, briefly, Tenerife captain. The popular centre-back broke down in tears at a press conference in July when it was confirmed he was leaving. He was keen to stay, but Tenerife never offered him a contract. He has started well at his new club, and even scored on his home debut. But he has missed the last few games through injury and will need a fitness test before Sunday’s match. Culebras played 98 times for Tenerife and is desperate to play, saying: “I loved every minute of my time in Santa Cruz. The fans were amazing and I will never forget our promotion season and the time in La Liga. “It will be a strange day, that is for sure. It will be great to see the fans in the stadium again, and I’m not sure what will happen if we win. “Tenerife are not doing so good right now and that is sad, but they will improve. Just not this Sunday, I hope!” He will certainly be given a great reception from the supporters. He may not have been the quickest, and he took a bit of time to settle in Santa Cruz. But he always worked hard for the shirt and it was a real surprise to see him move on. Numancia are in decent shape. Recently, they beat Cartagena and well-touted

Elche, but they also lost, just like Tenerife, in Barcelona and at home to Celta Vigo. Tenerife welcome back Juanlu Hens, who missed out last week with a viral infection and is chomping at the bit: “I’m so glad the doctors got to the bottom of my problems,” he said. “I have not felt myself all season, but this week I feel so much stronger. Numancia are a good team, but we are going to win on Sunday. It’s important we get that first win and go on from there.” A fully-fit Juanlu is a real asset and he needs to bounce back after a poor few months. It will be interesting to see whether coach Mandia plays young Venezuelan kid Josmar. He came on for his debut against Barcelona and did well. In recent years, Iriome and Omar have both made major impacts after being given their chance. Mandia will complete his touchline ban this week and he has some real decisions to make. Does he play Natalio, Alvarez or Hidalgo in the hole behind Nino? Is it Omar or Kome wide left? Juanlu or Josmar right midfield, and what about the defence? Only Aragoneses, Marc Betran and Nino are guaranteed places, and there could be a little shake up on Sunday. Tenerife have some easier matches coming up, and a win would set them up nicely for a charge up the table. But defeat? Don’t even go there.

the Surfers came ashore with a 5-3 victory against a plucky Strikers team. Barracudarts Boys cemented their top spot in Division 2 with an 8-0 win at Woodys B, and that result means they are looking odds-on to be champions after Nauta

Doing justice to their team name, Bar 180A gave Toscales Ensecan the full force and took them out with a 7-1 hammering. Tenerife Sons were also on the wrong end of a 7-1 result, against league leaders Nauta A, in a match which could have ended all-square, a few missed doubles costing the visitors dearly. On a different note, congratulations are offered to Ian and Rachel, of Nauta Bar, on the birth of their son, Jamie. Phoenix moved two places

Nutters could only manage a 5-3 win at home to Knights B. A very local derby in Los Abrigos saw La Caña Lancers beat Amigos Bad Girls 5-3, and a similar affair in Las Americas saw Gaffers and Rood A finish all-square. Bar 180 B got back on track with a 5-3 win at bottom side Marilyns, while the Playgirls had loads of fun with their fine 6-2 success at Phoenix Flames. Yelas Bar are still in the hunt for promotion after a good 71 result at home to the notso-super Naturals, and Tenerife Sun went up two places after a solid 6-2 result at home to Nauta B. Finally, the Tavern took the long bus ride to Barracuda Hunters and enjoyed the journey home after an excellent 6-2 win. By Geoff Huxtable

Top two start to pull away THE top four Division One sides clashed last Tuesday, and a marker has been laid down for the season. In Torviscas, Summerlands Superstars were far too strong for defending champions Tenerife Hammers A. Ashley, Grandad and Ket

gave the hosts a flying start and, despite Jambo doing the singles double over Penguin Craig, the 7-3 result was never in doubt. The Hammers’ title hopes will be in tatters if they fail to beat Palms A next week, and the league leaders were in good nick against Bar 180 B. All the frames were close,

15 October 2010 - 21 October 2010

but Palms’ superior finished was everything and the 7-3 scoreline was about right. Rat Pack moved above 180 B following a thumping 8-2 win at Legends A. Atlantis Sharks did the same to an out-ofsorts Toscales. There were also good wins for Hoops at Allstars, Nauta A at home to Terrace A and Target, who

edged past Dreamers. 8 Ball Massive and Bar 180 A drew a tight match, and this week’s hat-tip goes to Trap Door, who fought back from 5-2 down to draw at Men Of Atlantis. In Division Two, leaders Legends B saw their perfect record come to an end at Hammers B, who are better

than the table suggests. Captain Sean beat Graham in the final frame to steal a point in a watertight contest. The sides chasing Legends all won to claw back a few points. Bar 180 C edged out Phoenix Potters in a close one, and Bar Tasca were too strong for Roger’s coffindodgers, the Barracuda

Hunters going down 8-2. Gaffers moved up to fifth following a 6-4 win over Inn The Pink on their “wolly” table. And, as if to prove the closeness of the division, the rest of the matches were all drawn. This meant Slim Nick’s rock-bottom Palms B got their first point of the season. The only way is up now, fellas!

How Columbus helped to gain huge riches for Spain TUESDAY of this week was a national fiesta which was, initially, the feast day for Neustra Señora Maria del Pilar. But in recent times, it has also been used commemorate the day on which Christopher Columbus first sighted land, and celebrated the first Mass in the new world. It is, therefore, known as “El Dia de la Hispanidad” and is marked throughout the Spanish-speaking world. It is known as Columbus Day in the US, and has been a national holiday there since the 400th anniversary of the event in1892. That was when President Benjamin Harrison called on the nation to celebrate the occasion. So as not to be left out, Canada holds its Thanksgiving Day on the same date. The Virgin of Pilar is exceptional because she is reputed to have appeared to the apostle, St James the Great, during her actual lifetime; all other numerous apparitions were after her death. She is alleged to have appeared to him as he evangelised the Gospel in Ceasaragustara atop a column, or pillar, carried by angels. This “pilar” is thought by some to be the same one venerated in the cathedral church of Zaragoza. This is dedicated to the Virgin de Pilar, reportedly the sight of many miraculous healings. Columbus’s first Mass was probably held on Watling Island, one of the Bahaman group. Later that month he landed on Cuba (which he thought might be China) and on 5th December he went on to land on Hispaniola, which he felt could be Japan. Despite popular belief, the navigators of the day did not think the Earth to be flat - a myth brought about by the Victorians. They had known since

Page 48

early times that the Earth was round, but thought it smaller than it was; hence the mistaken identification of the new lands. Columbus had set sail from Palos de la Frontera, just down river from Huelva, on 3rd August 1492, under the patronage of the Spanish crown. He had previously been rejected twice, but in January of that year, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella had finally succeeded in banishing the Moors from their last stronghold in Granada. And, feeling flush with the victory, they agreed to support his “Enterprise to the Indies” expedition. Columbus, born in the Republic of Genoa in 1451, worked as a seaman and then as a maritime entrepreneur, becoming obsessed with finding a new route to Cathay (China), India and the gold and spice

islands of Asia. The route, via Egypt and other overland access, had been blocked to Europeans by the Ottoman Empire, and no other sea passage was known of at the time. Of his three ships, the largest was the Santa Maria (nicknamed La Gallaga), captained by Columbus. It was known as a Nao (old Spanish for ship) and today it would be called a carrack. The other two, The Pinta and The Nina (actual name: Santa Clara), were smaller caravels and were captained by the brothers Martin and Vincente Pinzon, from the town of Moguer, in Andalusia. Their final port of call, before setting out to cross the Atlantic, was San Sebastian de La Gomera. Here, the Nina was re-rigged and fitted with squared sails to replace the lateen rig she had set out with; she now matched the other two ves-

sels. Intending to stay for four days only, Columbus became romantically involved with the daughter of the governor, Beartriz de Bobadilla y Ossorio, and ended up extending his time there. After taking on water and fresh supplies, the captains waited for a suitable wind and finally set sail on 6th September. But after a month or so at sea, the crew were close to mutiny and Columbus promised on 10th October that if land had not been sighted within two days, they would return to Spain. Luck was on his side because land was indeed sighted, by Rodrigo de Triana at 2am on the 12th. Columbus established a small colony on Hispaniola with 39 men and returned to Spain, loaded with gold, spices and Indian captives. He was greeted as a hero by the Spanish court and awarded the country’s highest honours, including - on his own insistence - the title of Admiral of the Ocean Sea. Columbus had become the first European to explore the Americas since the Vikings had set up colonies in Greenland and Newfoundland in the 10th century. During his lifetime, he would return to the Americas four times, discovering various Caribbean Islands, the Gulf of Mexico and the South and Central American mainlands. But he never achieved his original goal of discovering a western sea route to the great cities of Asia Far from popular belief, he did not discover America nor even North America but his exploits as an explorer did not stop his name being lionised. Columbus died in Spain in 1506. Over the next century, his discovery of the New World’s riches was to make Spain the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth.
