Fish foot spa treatments are ‘risk’ to public health TINY fish nibbling at your feet. Sounds good? Well, the proliferation of the latest trend, the fish foot spa pedicure system, here in Tenerife has just set off alarm bells at Adeje Town Hall. Health Department chief Santos Cruz says, there is no proof this treatment does not pose a risk to public health and will not allow the spas to operate in the Municipality. The statement claims a lack of scientific evidence that this is a safe, curative therapy, as many operators says. The treatment uses the garra rufa fish, whose natural habitat is the warm waters off the Turkish coast. In the spas and beauty parlours, they are used in mineral waters as a pedicure as well as a treatment for some footrelated ailments, where they nibble dead skin from the client’s submerged feet, but Councillor Santos Cruz said: “I want to make it clear that this kind of treatment doesn’t help or cure every kind of skin condition and for that reason, we will not be allowing this kind of spa in our Municipality. “There just is not sufficient scientific proof on this and the minimum sanitary conditions have not been established yet for its use. “We know that this new practice is being offered under the name ictiotherapy, or spa fish, and that the feet remain in the water with the fish for between 15 to 20 minutes at a temperature of around 37º, which is the right temperature for the fish to survive but is also ideal for the survival of a number of

known harmful micro-organisms. “This activity simply doesn’t have any regulations in place yet, there has been no valuation of the treatment or of controls governing the water quality. This is why it cannot be installed here as an activity offered to the public, whether visitors or residents of our region.” He said the Department of Public Health has also indicted that the fish spa treatment offered as a therapy must

comply with the rules, have proper authorisation and be registered with the health services. However, there are no official guidelines available yet, here in Tenerife. But it’s not just here that authorities are looking at safety issues related to the so-called ‘doctor fish’. Health experts are investigating the safety of fish pedicures precisely because of the concerns that this latest pampering craze could spread infections.

In the UK, the Health Protection Agency is concerned this could spread diseases from person to person through open wounds. A Health Protection Agency spokesperson said, “Following a number of enquiries to the HPA from local environmental health officers over the past several months, the agency is currently investigating if there are any potential risks of infection associated with the commercial use of fish spa pedicures in the UK.

“Alongside colleagues in environmental health, Health Protection Scotland and the Health and Safety Laboratory, the HPA will examine the most up to date evidence of any possible risks associated with garra rufa fish pedicures and will publish guidelines that will be available UK-wide. “The HPA and Health Protection Scotland is currently unaware of any cases of infection associated with the use of the fish spas pedicures in the UK.”

The tiny garra rufa fish, the “doctor fish” as they are affectionately called, are actually a type of toothless carp that nibble on the dead skin. While their use in spas across the UK has been gaining in popularity, despite the HPA investigation raising safety issues, in the US, however, some states have banned their use over health and safety concerns of having the same fish clean the skin of multiple customers.

Briton tosses Melchior turns to the acid at police Germans for help to

ACCORDING to a report in the local Spanish newspaper, La Opinion, and confirmed by the Guardia Civil, a British man, 36-year-old V.D., resident of San Miguel, has been charged with throwing hydrochloric acid into the face of a Guardia Civil officer who was on the scene investigating a domestic violence complaint. The incident apparently happened on Amarilla Golf, and the officer in question was fortunate to be accompanied by a fast-thinking colleague who quickly rinsed the ‘agua fuerte’ from his face. As he assisted the injured officer the suspect fled the scene, but was arrested shortly afterwards and sub-

sequently released after appearing before a judge on charges of assaulting a police officer. Police confirm that the officer has suffered no permanent injury from the attack. Confirmation has been received by Canarian Weekly from the British Consulate, from Helen Keating, saying, “Yes, I can confirm that a British national was arrested and consequently released for throwing acid at a police officer when they answered a call on a domestic violence case.” The British suspect was arrested for a second time just a few hours later on the charge of domestic violence.

keep railway on track RICARDO MELCHIOR, Tenerife Cabildo President, has been trying to drum up EU and German backing for Tenerife’s proposed high-speed railway. Melchior was in Brussels with Carlos Alonso, his Minister for Economy and Competitiveness this week for European Sustainable Energy Week, organised by German MEP Joachim Zeller. And he took the opportunity to present the Transrapid railway as a model of sustainable transport for the Island. The President had already sounded out Germany’s Government about the prospects of obtaining a subsidy for the carriage manufacturers and a reduc-

tion in costs. Melchior said: “Although the German technicians have delivered a favourable report for the construction of the Transrapid, there are still many economic and technical issues to be resolved.” He believes the railway, which will link North and South airports in an astonishing 15 minutes, will be a big draw for the Island,

attracting up to 300,000 people a year simply wanting to ride on the train. He added: “We are trying to get this type of transport into the European Commission’s White Paper, which includes transport proposals for the European Union and, thus, obtain support from Brussels for funding. “Similarly, the maintenance

cost is also lower than a conventional railway because there is no wear and tear to the rails, and you can use renewable energy for power. “It also means both airports could function as a single unit, with all the advantages. It would be a big draw for the Island, and it could attract around 300,000 people a year just to see and ride on the train. “Although the German technicians have delivered a favourable report for the construction of the Transrapid in Tenerife, there are still many economic and technical issues to be resolved.” Finance of 3,000 million euros for the venture will be obtained with a loan from the European Investment Bank, as happened with Tenerife’s tram linking Santa Cruz, La Laguna and Tíncer.

Ministry of Sound in Tenerife MARCH 5th 2011 saw Ministry of Sound Tours host the dance stage at Tenerife’s biggest Carnival and now you can go online to their webpage and watch a video report of the experience.

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is one of the biggest and most spectacular events of its kind in the world. Every March, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the largest of the Canary Islands, hosts this historical event which is the biggest carnival in Europe and the second biggest in the world after Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro carnival. In fact, the

city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is twinned with the city of Rio de Janeiro for this very reason! The setting was spectacular with a mammoth stage, massive speaker stacks which looked like they’d come directly from an AC/DC concert and 60,000 people who’d come purely to party - some in the most incredible costumes! And it was an epic night in every

sense of the word - with the Ministry’s Resident Tour DJs Shane Kehoe, Paul Deighton and Dipesh Parmar whipping the massive crowd into a frenzy, the Ministry of Sound dance stage was the most popular of the festival and saw over 15,000 people partying hard until the sun came up.

E15 - one year on

New flights in pipeline from Azerbaijan and Georgia to our Island TENERIFE has been promoted in far-flung countries such as Kazakhstan and the Ukraine, and is reaping the rewards with new flights this summer. Tenerife Tourism continues to open up new markets to attract more tourists. From June, a new route launches linking Tbilisi (Georgia) and Baku (Azerbaijan) to Tenerife South airport. It will become the first direct link between the Canaries and the two Caucasus countries (Central Asia). The island is also being promoted in Kazakhstan and

E15 is not a food additive but how the Icelandic mountain glacier Eyjafjallajökull is affectionately referred. Cast your minds back one year and it was the 5,466 ft volcano that brought world air travel to a standstill. E15 is a stratovolcano, the same as our Mount Teide, but Teide stands head and shoulders above at a whopping 12,188 ft. In December 2009, seismic activity was detected in the volcano area, with thousands of small earthquakes beneath the volcano. On 26th February 2010, unusual seismic activity along with rapid expansion of the Earth’s crust was registered by the Meteorological Institute of Iceland. The seismic activity continued to increase and from 3–5 March, close to 3,000 earthquakes were measured at the epicentre of the volcano. The eruption is thought to have begun on 20 March 2010. On 14 April 2010 Eyjafjallajökull spectacularly erupted, actually for the sec-

ond time, spewing volcanic ash several kilometres up in the atmosphere which led to air travel disruption for days from 15 April and into May 2010, including the closure of airspace over many parts of Europe. One year on the volcano continues to have several earthquakes daily, with Volcanologists watching the volcano closely, plus the world of air travel has got back to normal, with whatever normal is. More worryingly, Scientists in Iceland are warning that there is another volcano that looks set to erupt and threatening to spew-out a massive ash cloud. A professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland, says the area around Bárdarbunga is showing signs of increased activity, which provides “good reason to worry”. Bárdarbunga, a large central volcano, had its last major eruption in 1477 when it produced a large ash and pumice fall-out deposit. It also produced the largest known lava flow during the past 10,000 years on earth (more than 21 cubic kilometers of volume). One volcanic website terms the status of Bárdarbunga as unsettled.

Ukraine, where there will be another flight in the summer. The route will be operated by the tour operator Georgia Shoreteli, which is plugging Tenerife as a holiday destination. The flight will be weekly and will run from 24 June to 30 September 2011 but with the option of an extension if sales go well. The aircraft offers 220 seats and is expected to be especially popular with travellers with medium to medium-high spending power. This flight opens up the possibility for visitors from Kazakhstan to come to Tenerife. The flight will also

be marketed in this country because tourists will not have to travel first to Moscow (as they do now), located more than 2,200 kilometres to the northwest. For the promotion of this route, in February the Tenerife Tourism Corporation assisted with a familiarization tour for twenty travel agents from Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan who visited the Island to see our main attractions. In June, coinciding with the first scheduled flights arriving on the island, a group of journalists from several major media in these countries have been invited over to

write articles and reports on Tenerife. The island has also marketed its broad scope as a holiday destination in the Ukraine at the UITT fair held recently in Kiev, a city from which a flight to Tenerife will operate in the summer due to the success of the flight launched last year, which recorded an occupancy more than 80 per cent. In these countries Tenerife is marketed as an exotic, fashionable and secure environment in which to enjoy good weather, beaches and a with a host of options to choose from. www.webtenerife.com

Stick & Win is back ...with Safeclean! THE Oasis Fm car sticker competition “Stick and Win” is back, sponsored by Safeclean, the No1 upholstery, carpetcleaning and pestcontrol company here in the south. All motorists have a chance to win 101 euros every week by displaying the Oasis Fm Car sticker. Just call into our offices in Las Chafiras, register your car and collect your Oasis Fm car sticker. Safeclean are a long, established Tenerife company, since 1987 actually, and owner Paul Batley has been at the helm since 2000. The company’s claim to fame is that they are the only non-Spanish registered pest control company on the Island. Now when you think of pest control, you probably initially think of businesses, and you’d be correct. However, Mancunian Paul told Canarian Weekly: “Many households are affected by pests and minor irritants. Not that they would tell you. “But people can do some-

thing about them, whether it’s those tiny microscopic ants or right up to the larger mice and rats.” Bars and restaurants If you are a bar or restaurant owner, then you are legally obliged to have your premises treated by a pest control company. Safeclean offer a 12-month guaranteed treatment and, in addition, they provide the appropriate paperwork and certificates required by the Tenerife authorities. Safeclean differ from other companies with whom you may have dealt with in that they offer one contract, one fee for all pests. And whereas business owners here often experience different contracts and fees for rodents and cockroaches, Safeclean are currently offering a 15% discount for

new bars and restaurants which take up their services. Households Houses and apartments here in Tenerife differ from those in the UK and, unfortunately, are prone to “infestations” because of the climate. Over recent months, there seems to have been an influx of tiny ants. These are actually called “ghost ants”, and Paul says they can be eradicated over a period of time. The price of pest control for your home is standard and inexpensive, and it’s the ideal solution, especially if you rent out your property. It doesn’t provide a good impression when your visitors contact you because of “unwanted guests”. If you use Safeclean, then you needn’t worry.

The approved products used by Safeclean are noninvasive, with no odour. Gone are the days of fumigating and leaving the premises empty for 24 hours because the process is almost clinical now. Canarian Weekly asked Paul what the major pests were here on the Island, and he replied: “Mainly cockroaches, but it’s a myth that they all fly. The big ones are American cockroaches, which live mainly outside in drainage, while the smaller ones are German cockroaches. “You can have the cleanest premises in the world, but cockroaches fly in or are brought in on deliveries. They reproduce so quickly 12 weeks from birth - and the eggs look like coffee beans.” Wasp nests are also common here and can be dealt with by Paul’s company, but not bees. These are protected and have to be dealt with by the resident beekeeper in each municipality. If you are interested in any of Safeclean’s services, then call Paul on 609 066 973, or email info@safecleantenerife.com

Chayofa walkers can look forward to safe footpath

WALKERS that risk the route between La Camella and Chayofa will be pleased to know that the Arona Town Council now has the project that will allow them to build a proper footpath linking the two and allowing for a much safer journey. The main road that runs between the two areas will get a much needed repair at the same time, and Arona Council feels this will benefit residents tremendously and also encourage visitors to enjoy the walk into town. The work, which isn’t expected to begin until after the May elections, has a budget of 1.3million euros and takes in a full 8,418 square metres, the exact length of the old road from Chayofa into La Camella. Mayor of Arona, José Alberto González Reverón, said the project incorporates two aims; one the recupera-

tion of the old road that is definitely in need of some serious repair and replacement work and two, the footpath will encourage people to see the beauty of the area and enjoy walking from place to place. The path will be as much as five metres wide, in places and will have occasion-

al seating areas for rest and to take in the nature surrounding them, in an area full of local flora. Like many projects of its kind, this path will also have a low, natural stone style wall, making it safe from the road but also blending well with the surrounds. The initiative also plans to replace many of the plants that are found locally but are no longer in abundance. The Mayor said, “In a Municipality like Arona, which is characterised partly by the fact that it is quite widespread, geographically speaking, we have to give the residents alternative ways of getting from one place to another, while at the same time we are trying to create an area that can be enjoyed, where children can play and, in this particular case, we are even going to put in place a bicycle lane.”

NEWS IN BRIEF Rents going up and down THE PRICE of renting a home in the Canary Islands experienced an overall drop of 1.7% during the month of March, according to the latest figures.

However, here in Tenerife there was a slight increase of just 0.2% across the Island, but in Adeje Municipality the increase was a substantial 5.2%, meaning the cost of renting in that borough now stands at 7.79 euros per square metre.

New work planned for Los Cristianos AFTER several years of ongoing improvements, the town of Los Cristianos is about to enter into the final phase of the initiative in May. Under

the

Canarian

Government and Tenerife authorities guidelines to continually upgrade tourism based zones, it will be the El Cabezo region of the town that will see road works and various other projects getting underway next month. The work is expected to take 8 months to complete.

Consumer Price Index up WHILE food prices have remained largely stable this past week, the Canary Islands registered the second greatest rise in the Consumer Price Index throughout the country for the

month of March, standing at 0.9%, some 0.2% higher than the national average. This rise is also the highest experienced here in Tenerife since April of 2010.

Signing up for the gastronomy route RESTAURANTS, bars and cafes located in Valle San Lorenzo, La Camella, Cabo Blanco and Buzanada are being invited to sign up for ‘El Almácigo 2011’, the III Gastronomy Route that has been devised and organised by the Department for Economic Promotion and

Employment at the Arona Town Hall. Under the supervision of Councillor Dácil García Marcelino, the route is open to all who wish to be included, the only specification being that they offer typical Canarian tapas, a glass of water, local wine or local beer, for the price of just three euros. Signing up is a breeze and can be done at any of the Citizens Attention offices at

Las Galletas, Los Cristianos or in Arona town. The event will take place over a number of days, from May 16th until May 29th, each day between the hours of 6pm and 11pm. The idea behind this unusual initiative is to bring some dynamism into the restaurant sector and encourage people to come out, enjoy some inexpensive tapas and then move on to the next bar or café.

It will also be of great help to local growers and wine producers, and assist in forming a business relationship between local producers and the restaurant trade, where they would like to see their goods on offer to the public. Prizes will be awarded to the participating establishments for the tastiest tapa, the most original and the most popular. There will also be a draw for clients to win a hamper filled with local products.

Cuts coming to Telefónica Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica has just announced that it plans to cut its workforce in Spain by about 20 per cent, or some 6,000 people, over the next three years as a cost-cutting measure. With services already stretched to their limit and consumers far from happy, this measure seems certain to have a negative affect on the users as well as those workers who lose their jobs.

The company will also link pay and benefits more to employee’s productivity rather than the inflation rate, it said in a presentation to investors in London that was posted on the company’s website. The head of the group’s business in Spain, Guillermo Ansaldo, said the job cuts would allow the company to gain “flexibility”. Telefonica employs some 30,000 people in Spain, meaning over 5,000 will be cut, out of a total global workforce of 269,000 people. The announcement of the job cuts by the former state monopoly is grim news for a

country already grappling with an unemployment rate of just over 20 per cent, the highest level in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. Earlier this month the government lifted its forecast for unemployment this year to 19.8 per cent from 19.3 per cent previously. “It is not a good moment to carry out staff adjustments of such a significant size,” said Labour Minister Valeriano Gomez. And of course the unions will have to be consulted. Telefonica also said it plans to sell “non strategic assets”, mostly real estate, in the

2011-13 period worth 600 million euros. Telefonica posted a record 2010 net profit of 10.2 billion euros, a 30.8 per cent jump over the previous year as weakness in Spain was offset by strong growth in the rest of Europe and Latin America. The company’s revenues in Spain were down by five per cent last year, in comparison. And on top of that news, Britain’s Dixons Retail, Europe’s number two electrical goods retailer which runs PC World stores, said it was closing its 34 loss-making outlets in Spain due to weak consumer demand in the country.

Bluetrail race attracts huge crowd again TENERIFE’S Bluetrail race, being staged tomorrow (Saturday), has attracted a huge international entry of 618 runners, from 11 countries. As readers will know, Tenerife Bluetrail is open to all runners, including those with disabilities, who are over the age of 18 on the date of the run, and who have registered correctly. The race has had an interesting beginning going back to more than five year ago when CruzaTenerife was first held, a mountain race that took off at the port of Güímar up and over Teide to Garachico. That race attracted 96 participants. By 2010, however, the response had grown to the

point where almost 600 runners signed up for the challenge, giving the race the status as a qualifier for the Mont Blanc Ultra Trail, one of the foremost mountain races of the annual season. It was clear that with this kind of participation, it was necessary to organise something a little more sophisticated and so the Tenerife Cabildo became involved and took on the role as organiser, along with the Department of the Environment, Tenerife Tourism, The Tenerife Mountain Federation and the security forces. Thus was born Tenerife Bluetrail – Sea to Sky, to be held on April 16th. The route now passes through some of the most attractive countryside on the Island, travelling through small villages and up onto the fantastic moun-

tain trails within the El Teide National Park and beyond. This year the race will see some of the best known participants in the sport competing including Alfredo Gil, Javier Heras, Miguel Gurúntiz and José Carlos Vera, all first class national competitors that have gained some important finishes in races held around the world, from La Palma to Canada. According to the website everyone who participates in the Tenerife Bluetrail run shares a set of values that make this run an outstanding event. There will be fairness in determining and applying the rules and everyone must comply with the same rules. Appropriate treatment of the rest of the runners, members of the organization and the local population is of paramount impor-

tance and anyone in danger or difficulty must be given assistance. Organisers hope that the race will help all the runners to increase their physical and mental strength and great lengths have been taken to promote the participation of people with reduced mobility or any form of sensory disability. Tenerife Bluetrail includes four mountain routes, more than 80% of them along Tenerife’s new network of pathways, which are within the Natural Protected Areas of the Natura 2000 Network. Each run is made up of a single stage, with no specific speed required, but with a time limit. For more information go to www.tenerifebluetrail.com.

Brian May in Tenerife ASTRONOMER-musician Brian May will make a guest appearance at Tangerine Dream’s Sonic Universe in Tenerife on 24th June. Sonic Universe will take place at the Magma Art and Congress Hall as part of the spectacular forthcoming Starmus Festival, now just a few short months away (2025 June). Tangerine Dream will bring a unique feature to the concert with the incorporation into their performance of actual sound effects recorded from the Sun and other stars. Tickets are limited in number and are now on sale (see www.starmus.com for purchase details). For Brian May, Tenerife has always been a spiritual home from home, inspiring his best creative powers. Queen devotees will know that he began his musical career on this island (he wrote the Queen song ‘Tie Your Mother Down’ during an observing trip to the Teide Observatory while

working towards his PhD in Astrophysics in 1971). That was 40 years ago, but now May will be back at last on his favourite island, this time with his “red special”! Having begun his PhD studies in Tenerife all those years ago, May finally wrote up his thesis a couple of years ago (in the interim, of course, he became part of the Queen legend!). Apart from his guest appearance at the Sonic Universe, May will also give a talk and participate in a round table discussion on our future in space.

long summer holidays. This year two new projects are on offer. The first is a bi-lingual, Spanish and English two week course and the second is in science and the environment. According to the Cabildo’s Councillor for Youth, Equality and Education, Josefa Garcia, “These camps are places where children can learn more about culture and Canarian traditions

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

as well as the environment in which they live. “During a period of 10 or 15 days the children can get close to nature in the mountains of Tenerife or even on other Islands. The bi-lingual camp is designed to help children with their English language skills while at the same time have fun outdoors.” For more information visit the Tenerife Cabildo website on http://www.tenerife.es

Cabildo seeks meeting over taxi regulations The First Vice President of the Tenerife Cabildo, José Manuel Bermúdez, has released a statement declaring that he has approached the Canarian Government with a proposal to come to an agreement on how to reduce the number of licensed taxis in Santa Cruz by 180 during the course of the next ten years. Currently, taxi drivers in the capital are feeling the pinch as public transport improves and people are less inclined to pay for taxi journeys when the tram will do. The proposal suggests that licenses be purchased for 30,000 euros each, a cost that would be shared by the local authorities, the Cabildo and

the Canarian Government, with the first wave to purchase a maximum of 60 licenses over a two-year period. The hope is that over this period of time the number of cabs will be reduced sufficiently so that those remaining will have a greater share of the business available and thus make a decent living. Cab drivers in the city have been complaining ever since the arrival of the tram that their business had decreased by as much as 40% and that they were having difficulties supporting their families. The Cabildo hopes that, by reducing the numbers of taxis on the streets, these problems will be rectified.

Community service is working It was just about a year ago that the Arona Town Council signed an agreement with the Director General’s Office of the Prison Service to allow people sentenced to community service to carry out that work in Arona and according to a report the project has been a success. Councillor for Social Services in Arona, Clara María Pérez, has announced that so far some 25 offenders have served out their

Page 08

sentences in the Municipality, the majority of which have been sentenced for traffic offences. These offenders have served their hours working on gardens around the Municipality, as well as in centres for the disabled, youth and sports centres and libraries. They all come from Arona and so have been able to serve out their punishment within their own communities.

Kids’ Home will have a chocolate bonanza LIZ MONTAGUE, who runs the charity Helping Hands in Tenerife, visited the Guadyl Children’s Home in Granadilla, along with the Wednesday Club’s Christine Hoban. She handed over a huge basket filled with over 40 hand-knitted chickens, made by Wednesday Club members, and chocolate Easter Eggs from Iceland. Liz is pictured presenting a cheque for 2,000 euros to carer Josefa Regalado from the proceeds of the Valentine’s Dinner

Dance. Josefa was thrilled to receive the donation, and the monies will go towards equipment for the newly-reformed children’s playground area. Helping Hands raised thousands each year for deserving causes, and Liz said: “It is fantastic that together, we can make a difference to children less fortunate. I am sure they are going to have a super Easter.” And Christine was delighted that the Wednesday Club were also involved, Last year, when members paraded their Easter bonnets, she challenged them to start knitting Easter chickens for 2011, specifically for Guardyl kids. A year later, she was inundated with chickens in different colours from Club members and others at the South Tenerife Christian Fellowship. The Iceland store in Chafiras was approached and gave a generous discount on boxed Easter eggs which, with the chickens, were distributed between all the children and staff at Guardyl. Christine said. “It is so good to think that the Wednesday Club’s mainly elderly members now have a link with the Granadilla children, who have so little.”

Whale-watch posters surfacing in the south TOURISM Tenerife has just finished placing a series of posters in the south of the Island to encourage and enlighten visitors to the joys of whalewatching in Tenerife. Specifically, the placards are located in Los Gigantes, Los Cristianos and Puerto Colon as well as areas throughout Arona, Adeje and Santiago del Teide where the majority of tourists will see them. This initiative is part of the plan for Tourism Tenerife to collaborate and help in revitalising the sector and raise visitor awareness of the many ‘ecofriendly’ activities to be

enjoyed here. Explaining the richness of the marine life off the coast, the main focus is on dolphins and whales and the nature of their habitat. The south-west coast of Tenerife is a privileged place for watching whales in the wild and there are also permanent pods of dolphins in the surrounding waters year round. Bearing in mind they live so close to the coast, Tenerife has become the top European destination in terms of the number of people that have seen whales in their natural habitat. You can find up to twentyone different species in Tenerife’s waters; from the colossal blue whale to the feared killer whale. There are

two resident populations, the pilot whale and the bottlenose dolphin, which can be observed on perhaps 80% of the days of the year, with a sighting percentage of close to 100%. It is estimated that as many as 500 of these dolphins have made Tenerife’s waters their permanent home and they can usually be encountered in pods of up to 20 in number. For various reasons pilot whales and bottlenose dolphins have settled off the south west coast of Tenerife and have become permanent inhabitants: the food supply, which is abundant; the tranquil waters, protected from the trade winds by the mountainous landscape of the island; as well as the good climate and quality of crystalclear waters, have created a paradise and ideal setting for these marine mammals. An opportunity not to be missed, as there are very few places on this planet offering such a wide variety of species. It’s no wonder why these fascinating creatures attract 700,000 visitors every year. In addition to the posters, Tourism Tenerife has also produced a pamphlet in four languages with information on the whales and dolphins that are being distributed in tourist information offices. The organisation is also creating a centre in the south of the island to study these marine creatures, promoting increased knowledge of their behaviour and their conservation.

Marine Reserve Network THE CABILDO de Tenerife is spearheading the setting up of a new Network of Protected Marine Areas or ocean reserves around the island to encompass the different existing regulations for marine protection, in line with the legislative amendment which was passed recently. The Island Councillor for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Jose Joaquin Bethencourt, convened the first meeting with representatives from different areas of the Tenerife Island Government, local town councils, the University, Canary Islands Government

Deputy Ministry of Fisheries, the central government, professional and recreational fishermen and members of the Association Ecoocéanos, among others. Jose Joaquin Bethencourt informed the meeting of the proposed creation of two Marine Reserves of Fishing Interest in Teno and Anaga, which have been approved at a recent sitting of the Cabildo. He also put forward a proposal for upgrading other areas of Tenerife’s ocean, under the framework of the cooperation agreement for the joint programme to limit the population of sea urchins with the Deputy Ministry of Fisheries of the Canary Islands Government. “This first meeting aims to address the proposals raised by various institutions and organizations to find the

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

framework that fits in with the current legislation and which tries to cover all the different existing marine protection regulations to set up a network of Protected Marine Reserves,” says the island’s Fisheries chief. The creation of these areas will clearly benefit the recovery of marine resources, but it is also a firm commitment to the environment, to promotion of water sports and attracting quality tourism to Tenerife. “Within the fisheries policy of the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Water at the Cabildo, the conservation of our fishing resources have been a priority for several years. All these proposals have been developed in the context of this policy,” Bethencourt adds.

Our safety-first animal lovers rewarded AKTIONTIER, the German charity which sponsors dog refuge Accion del Sol, has paid tribute to a group of people for their contributions to animal safety in South Tenerife. Receiving the Honour for Animal Protection 2011 award during a ceremony at the Granadilla-based sanctuary were Jose Joaquin Betencourt, Government Minister for Agriculture and Fishery; Victor Chinea Niebla, Mayor of San Miguel de Abona; Mrs Maria Clara Peréz Peréz, Arona Councillor for Social Services and Mrs Myrna Vaele, dog rescue centre in Arico. Also pictured are Arico Mayor.Eladio Morales Borges and Holger Knieling, director of Aktiontier in Germany. Accion del Sol’s Spring fundraising event proved a great success on Sunday, thanks to a brilliant effort from all the contributors and supporters. Anne Anderson, from Butterflies, the second-hand clothing store at Tenerife Auction rooms, and all her hard-working models at the fashion show, were fully appreciated by spectators.

Also, thanks go to the Ostrich Farm for bringing their baby ostriches along, the Camel Park for their few goats, and to the many other people who helped to make it a grand afternoon, despite the blustery wind. Marion Gonzalez, who runs the centre, said: “It was pleasing to see so many new faces at the refuge, and the generous donations from many people there were fully appreciated.”

The day was full of fun, and a display of “Belly Dancing” was deemed the highlight of the entire event by some adults! There was also a whole host of attractions to keep the children amused, including a puppet show. The kids were also able to play with the numerous puppies, all seeking loving new homes, and there was a clown, face-painting, horse rides and fun dog races. And they had an opportunity to learn all about the many

animals at the refuge, including a donkey, rabbit, ostriches, goats and baby ducks. Excellent cakes were provided by the German bakers and various supporters of Accion del Sol. Please contact 922 778 630 for more information, or if you can help the refuge in any way. Marion is always looking for dog-walkers, so if you have a little bit of time to spare, please call. Acción del Sol is open to

the public from MondayFriday (3-6pm), so come along and see for yourselves this first-class animal rescue centre, where the dogs’ care is second to none. Marion is delighted to announce that

the refuge has again renewed its contract with Granadilla, ensuring that all the stray dogs from that municipality are taken there for protection and, hopefully, rehomed eventually.

Britons ‘Virgin Slavic’ hair work less extensions meeting PEOPLE in the UK work fewer hours than the Spanish and the Italians, once unpaid work like cooking and cleaning is included. New figures from the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) show the average Briton works 7 hours and 53 minutes each day, 3 hours 31 minutes of which is unpaid. The United Kingdom lies slightly above the OECD average for unpaid work, but below Sweden, Poland, Australia and New Zealand. The French spend the longest shopping, at 32 minutes at day, closely followed by Canada and Germany, and the UK at 29 minutes. It was the Belgians who came in at the lowest time

spent on paid and unpaid work per day, at 7 hours and 7 minutes. Mexico had the highest figure, at 10 hours daily on average. The report also attempts to estimate how much unpaid work is worth as a percentage of GDP for 25 OECD countries. It found the value equivalent to about one-third of GDP in OECD countries, but highest at 53% in Portugal. Other facts in the study include that Americans spend the least time cooking and eating in the OECD. Irish people spend the longest looking after others in and out of the home at 62 minutes per day. The ‘Society at a Glance’ report looks at unpaid work, such as cooking, cleaning, caring, and shopping, in 26 OECD countries, as well as China, India and South Africa.

Prison officers agree to ballot over strike action PRISON officers in England and Wales are to be balloted over possible strike action in protest over Government plans to privatise some prisons. The threat of possible industrial action and strikes was sparked by privatisation plans for Birmingham and Featherstone prisons. If the plans go ahead the prisons would be run and staffed by the private security company G4S. The Prison Officers Association (POA) said it would take a decision once it has received an indicative ballot from its 30000 union members. Colin Moses, POA chairman said: “It is vital that the members have their say through the ballot box and

Page 12

decide what course of action they are prepared to take to support their colleagues, who have been sold off to the private sector. “Prisons should not be run for profit and whilst Ken Clarke took great pride in announcing the privatisation of these prisons, the POA remains of the view that it is the state’s responsibility to imprison its citizens and not profiteers.” Steve Gillan, POA general secretary, added: “We are just seeking our members’ views. The anger is still there and some of our members are now working to contract to show their feelings. “The ballot result will determine what we do in the future.”

demand from West THE celebrity obsession with hair extensions is growing and so is the demand for so-called “virgin Slavic” hair. Untreated hair from young Russian women makes big profits - but hardly any of it gets passed back to the women at the beginning of the chain. Katya’s job gives her £400 a month. It’s enough to get by on, but anything extra is more than welcome. Her long “virgin Slavic” hair is considered the best on the extensions market. She’s come to a dealer in Moscow to sell it. She’s welcomed into a small apartment where women sit combing through bunches of anonymous hair. Katya’s will soon join the piles they sift through. In a last-minute wobble, she says her long hair makes her feel beautiful. But her financial need soon outweighs vanity. The scissors are out and her tresses are chopped. Monitoring proceedings is Russian-born Tatiana Karelina, a hair extensions expert in the UK who regularly travels

to her homeland to source hair directly from dealers. She says her clients in London have no great concerns about where the hair has come from. “They have a rough idea that it’s human hair - that it comes from people. “And they ask a few ques-

tions - but I am always honest and whatever information I have, I will always give and they are OK with that. “Sometimes they are a bit concerned like ‘Oh really?’ but very rarely.” On top of a pile of ponytails, a particularly gleaming one is pointed out as the creme de

la creme, exactly the sort of hair Tatiana travels to Russia for. It will be bought from the Moscow dealer for £300 and will sell in a London salon for £800. It came from three Russian women. For each, this was a final resource to tap into in times of need. Thousands of women across Russia have done the same as Katya. The Belli Capelli hair factory on the outskirts of Moscow is the country’s largest hair factory with an annual revenue of £10m. Mountains of hair are being washed, snipped, coloured and dried by dozens of workers over three floors. Some of it is from the Soviet era. Post-perestroika, hair is becoming less valuable. As Russia prospers, women are gaining more access to dyes and styling products thereby lessening the quality. Back at the hair dealer’s, Katya receives her £40 and leaves, significantly lighter and slightly better off. She expresses little concern that her hair will now end up on the head of an infinitely wealthier Western woman.

Cameron immigration speech was ‘unwise’, accuses Cable BUSINESS Secretary Vince Cable has accused David Cameron of using “unwise” language in a keynote immigration speech, revealing tensions in the coalition Government. Mr Cable insisted the Prime Minister’s proposals to see the number of migrants coming to the UK every year slashed to tens of thousands was “not part of the coalition agreement”. The Lib Dems, however, have distanced themselves from Mr Cable’s comments. A source said Vince Cable is “his own man” and that the “Prime Minister is a conservative Prime Minister using conservative language”. Immigration policy has proved a sore point between the Lib Dems and Tories

since the General Election, with Mr Cable warning a cap would prevent British universities and companies recruiting the brightest talent from abroad. Mr Cameron insisted in a speech to Conservative supporters that he is keeping his promise to get a grip on immigration and admitted it had caused “discomfort and disjointedness” in some areas. The Prime Minister blamed welfare dependency and the last Labour government for allowing the number of people coming to the UK to be “too high”. The real issue is this: migrants are filling gaps in the labour market left wide open by a welfare system that for years has paid

British people not to work. Labour oversaw the “largest influx of people Britain has ever had” with 2.2m more people coming to the UK between 1997 and 2002, he said. Ministers either closed down debate and left people fearful of being dubbed racist or used “tough talk” that was not backed by effective policies, Mr Cameron said. This allowed more extreme parties such as the British National Party to “flourish”, but Mr Cameron said he wants to starve them of the “oxygen” of public anxiety. He said he has listened to voters’ concerns on the doorstep and will take action to cut numbers without harming businesses.

“The real issue is this: migrants are filling gaps in the labour market left wide open by a welfare system that for years has paid British people not to work,” he said. Conservative sources have dismissed concerns the PM is lurching back to the rhetoric used by ex-leaders William Hague and Michael Howard and what was known as the “core vote” strategy. It will be Mr Cameron’s most outspoken speech on immigration since becoming PM But with local elections weeks away, this is Mr Cameron’s chance to reach out to his likely voters. His argument draws a clear dividing line between the Conservatives and Labour and coalition partners the Liberal Democrats.

We’re counting ‘orange’ sheep

Unemployment total drops unexpectedly THE NUMBER of people out of work in the UK has fallen, down 17,000 in the three months to February.

A FARMER has dyed his sheep bright orange in an attempt to stop thieves stealing from his flock. John Heard decided to paint the woolly beasts after thieves targeted his flock of 250 black faced ewes. The farmer works on a remote part of moorland on Dartmoor in Devon. “Sheep rustling has become a big problem with ewes worth around £140 each,” the 48-year-old livestock

farmer said. “My flock roam Dartmoor and I was getting mighty fed up with losing so many.” The farmer got his inspiration after his son James told him about a Scottish farmer who had dyed his sheep before an agricultural show. The harmless non-toxic dye eventually wears off with no side effects and seems to have put a stop to the thefts. The National Farmers’ Union said there had been a fivefold increase in sheep thefts this year, due to the high price of lamb.

The official figures will be welcomed by the Government following steady growth in the jobless total in recent months. It leaves 2.48 million people out of work. However, the number claiming benefits rose by 700 in March. Youth unemployment continued its rise towards one million, rising by 12,000 in the three months to February, to 963,000. The monthly total of

the three months to March, up by 16,000 over the year. The rise has been attributed to temporary jobs relating to the Census. Samantha O’Byrne of financial consultants Grant Thornton said the figures provided “some consolation to the Chancellor’s plans for the UK economy”, but added, “there is still no room for complacency.” “The problem of young people struggling to enter the job market remains serious.” Meanwhile, recruitment website totaljobs.com reported a “surprise” growth in vacancies in the last few months, peaking at 134,000 in March.

The figures remain significantly below peak levels, but the firm said recent activity showed a strong recovery in the jobs market this year. The company’s director, John Salt, said “We’re surprised at the pace of the recovery, but we have a lot of ground to make up before the balance tips back in favour of jobseekers.” “It is still an employer’s market, and competition for positions will remain high until jobs growth outstrips jobseeker demand.” Another report by recruitment firm de Poel showed that use of temporary agency workers increased by 10% last month compared with a year ago.

Zeta-Jones treated for Bipolar Disorder ACTRESS Catherine Zeta-Jones has been treated for bipolar disorder in a mental health clinic, her publicist has confirmed. It follows a year in which the Welsh star helped her husband Michael Douglas in his battle against cancer. Her publicist, Cece Yorke, said: “After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check into a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her bipolar II disorder. “She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.” Zeta-Jones is thought to have checked in last Wednesday and stayed for five days. Bipolar disorder is a severe mood disorder which was formerly described as manic depression. People with bipolar II experience longer episodes of depression, with fewer “up” periods, mental health experts say. Bipolar disorder is a distressing and potentially severe condition and she will need a lot of care and support as she seeks to tackle it. The Oscar winner, 41, attended the Golden Globes awards ceremony in Los Angeles alongside her 66-

unemployed 16-24 year-olds fell, however, from 974,000. The data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) showed that the number of unemployed men fell by 31,000 to 1.45 million but increased by 14,000 for women to just over a million. The sharpest rise in unemployment was in the North East of England, up 10.4%. The biggest fall was in the East, where 15,000 fewer people were out of work. Average earnings increased by 2% in the year to February, down by 0.3% on the previous month, driven by falls in private sector companies. There were 482,000 job vacancies across the UK in

year-old husband in January. Douglas announced in the same month he had beaten throat cancer, which he was diagnosed with in August last year. In September, the actor revealed his cancer had spread when he told US talk show host David Letterman a biopsy had revealed he had “stage four cancer”. He underwent courses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The actress said at the time: “It makes me furious they didn’t detect it earlier.” Swansea-born Zeta-Jones has been supporting Douglas

and their two children, Dylan and Carys, throughout the ordeal. In February, she was made a CBE by the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace and was accompanied at the ceremony by her husband and two children. Afterwards, she spoke of her happiness at being able to collect the award with Douglas “in good health to be able to enjoy it”. Douglas is currently locked in a legal battle with his exwife Diandra who is making claims on the actor’s earnings 11 years after they divorced.

Mark Davies, from the charity Rethink Mental Illness, said: “Clearly this is a difficult time for Catherine Zeta-Jones and we send her our best wishes. “Bipolar disorder is a distressing and potentially severe condition and she will need a lot of care and support as she seeks to tackle it.” Around 1% of the population suffer from bipolar disorder, according to the charity. Celebrities who have spoken about their battle with the condition include actor and writer Stephen Fry, Take That singer Robbie Williams and television star Kerry Katona.

Swallows get head start for holidays THE Swallows stole a march on next week’s holiday festivities with their version of an Easter Bonnet Parade, and winner Agnes positively blossomed. The parade was held because many of the club members were departing for a summer at home in the UK, and those who won raffle prizes will receive their spoils when they return this winter. A total of 101 euros was raised from the raffle and

All the action takes place next Saturday (23rd April), starting at VIVO (on Treasure Island) at 1pm. There’s a barbecue, lots of live entertainment and a Crazy Golf competition. A top-notch raffle will be drawn with brilliant prizes, including 50 tickets to see the whales and dolphins, courtesy of Justin, from the Must Cat Catamaran company. There will also be a quality stall featuring products from Boots, Maybelline, Rimmel, Urban Decay plus others. Booked to appear so far are the Wild Boyz, White Knights, and the Platinum Girls, with other top acts in the offing.

A St George’s Day salute for heroes, now and then A JOINT St George’s Day venture between the VIVO club in Playa de Las Americas, and the Albatross Bar, Costa del Silencio, aims to raise funds for the British Legion (Tenerife) and Help4Heroes.

www.canarianweekly.com

Mark, the VIVI bar manager, has been busy orgaanising this event, with more than a little help from his friends Rick Sweeney and Barry Holroyde, both former Royal Marines. They are out and about, teasing raffle prizes from companies and individuals and organising stalls to make this a really special St George’s Day fund-raiser. If you are interested in offering your support, by way of a prize donation or running a stall, please contact Rick on 605 563 262 The VIVO venue is an ideal setting for the event, with plenty of free parking to the side and underground. Of far more importance to some, of course, will be a special drinks deal, with Dorada at two euros a pint. . On the same evening, the Albatross in Silencio is holding a St George’s Night party. Dave Tracy will entertain, and a raffle will be held for The Royal British Legion. The fun starts around 9pm, so please turn up, turn out your pockets for a good cause, and have a really good night out.

This is a special, annual event for the Lions, as it celebrates the formation of the club 26 years ago, and diners were treated to soup, chicken in orange or mushroom sauce and a medley of deserts. Club President Norman Goodall MBE thanked members for all their hard work during the year, and the public and local businesses for their continued support. Without this support, he said, little or nothing would be possible. Although club membership is down since its heyday, it is ranked as one of the highest in the Spain district in terms of cash generated and distributed to worthy causes. Norman added that while the children’s holidays continued to be the Lions flagship events, people should be reminded of the many other causes helped by the Lions through donations and practical support. And many receive assistance through the Helpline operated by the Lions. Earlier in the month, Wingate School raised 200 euros for the Lions at a Charity Variety Show, held at the school. The Club President thanked the School for their support, for an excellent evening’s entertainment and for their generous donation. A fun afternoon was enjoyed at the Glass Spider Bar, at the Apolo Centre, on 6th April. Events included the Lions’ Spring Raffle draw,

Norman Goodall and Tracey Kershaw, the Apolo Centre event organiser (from Tracey’s Take-Away) drawing the Lions’ Spring Raffle prizes

a Tombola, Fun Quiz, Bingo and Play Your Cards Right, with entertainment from a number of local artists, plus a karaoke. This event raised 386 euros for the Lions, and many thanks go to organiser Tracey Kershaw, and the local bars and businesses who donated prizes. The Garden Bar are running one of the biggest sporting memorabilia charity raffles ever to be held in Tenerife history. It includes prizes donated by some great sporting idols. These prizes include: signed Warrington Rugby League shirt; Andy Johnson (Man City) signed shirt; England cricket shirt, signed

by Test players Stuart Broad, Paul Collingwood, Jonathan Trott and Jimmy Anderson; Frankie Dettori signed silk cap; Tom Quilley and Henry Cecil signed racing cap; England Under-21s signed football shirt, plus a Phil Neville signed shirt and photo. The raffle will be drawn on Wednesday (20th April) at the Garden Bar, Commercial Centro, Sol Sun Beach, Playa Fanabe, by Perry Fenwick (Billy Mitchell from EastEnders) and boxer Nicky Cook (former world superfeatherweight champion). Proceeds will be split between Help4Heroes and Tenerife Sur Lions. Last year, the Garden Bar raised more

than 4,400 euros for the two charities with a World Cup raffle and auction. As ever, owner Webby has been able to conjure up prizes donated by some great sporting idols for the massive charity raffle. The first of this year’s Lion’s sponsored children’s holidays gets underway on 29th April when a party of 45 youngsters arrive for a week’s stay at the Princess Decil, in Los Cristianos. Trips organised for them include visits to the Medieval Castle, Loro Parque and Whale and Dolphin watching.

The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. It was on the 24th of May, 1956, that Europe saw the first ever Eurovision Song Contest. After 54 runnings, the contest is one of the most typical European traditions and without doubt, Europe’s favorite TV show! After a long bid and selection process, Düsseldorf was chosen as Host City of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest! The final decision was approved by the song contest’s governing body, the Reference Group. Pop superstars Blue get some Eurovision advice from the experts. This year the UK is taking a completely new approach for their Eurovision entry:

a known act, with a proven track record both here and internationally. Blue are up to the task. They’ve sold over 13 million records, won two Brit Awards and had 40 No. 1 singles worldwide. But what does it take to be a winner at Eurovision? Graham Norton brings his own inimitable style of commentary to this onehour special, which features some help from some of the biggest names in the business as Blue set out to discover what it takes to restore national pride. Expert opinion from Sir Cliff Richard, Robin Gibb, Robbie Williams, JLS, Arlene Phillips and John Barrowman contributes to the group’s plan. Drawing on a wealth of archive footage from pre-

vious years and following Blue at each stage, the documentary joins the band behind the scenes as they record and remix their song, work on a new image and meet choreographers, designers and stylists. There’s insight into the tension and group dynamic as the band put themselves under increasing pressure and question whether the strength of their friendship and talent will be enough to get them through. Cameras also follow them as they hit the road on a publicity blitz to win over fans here and around Europe. Finally, at the end of the show, viewers will see the finished song in a special performance that Blue think will do it. Next stop: Dusseldorf!

8.00pm, BBC2 Boots buyers Sarah ClarkMartin, Andy Atkinson and Allison Hands High street giant Boots opens its doors to just 10 lucky hopefuls, as the search continues for Britain’s Next Big Thing. Selected from hundreds of applicants, each designer or producer has just 15 minutes to impress the buyers with their products. The health, beauty and pharmacy market is worth over £26 billion, meaning that this is big business. Presenter Theo Paphitis offers advice and comfort to the prospective suppliers every step of the way, while explaining how Boots can take “somebody’s

branded products and create 30 or 40m pounds of turnover with it.” First into the pitching room are friends Stuart Jolley and Will Butterworth, fresh out of college with their product, Wingman body wipes: a new range of face and body deodorising wipes specifically catering for modern guys on the go. Next up is Una Tucker with her massage tool, The Kneader. After spending more than £40,000 on her creation, she says: “A lot of blokes think it looks like a knuckle-duster, but it isn’t.” Single mum Tracy Wood, who cooks up her eczema cream in her kitchen at home, dreams of seeing

her products on a shop shelf. However, as Theo explains, taking her kitchen-sink formula nationwide would require making medical claims that are highly regulated and “the testing required to prove the benefits ... is hugely expensive, even for someone like Boots.” Dr Shamus Husheer is next to meet the buying team with his innovative ovulation tester, which records minute changes in a woman’s body temperature to predict when she’s most fertile. Last to pitch is Elaine Weston, who thinks there’s a niche in the market for skincare products aimed at nine- to 12-year-olds.

Be a family member, close friend or someone down the street with whom you never socialised, we have all got a story to tell about someone who has gone through this horrible ordeal. To me, it’s a personal thing when it strikes a family member, and I believe we all cope with it in different ways. But it seems like all things in the world when a celebrity is concerned, and it’s made out to be a completely different matter. Just a year ago, we heard the horrible news that Hollywood legend Michael Douglas had stage 4 throat cancer. Bless him, because it not deter him from working during his treatment, and he did the chat-show market, plugging his new movie. Happily, it seems as though he has come through the other end, and we all pray that he gets well soon. Obviously, Michael is not alone in this because, according to the National Cancer Institute website, there were more than 25,000 new cases of throat cancer in the US last year, and 6,000 deaths. These statistics are shocking, I’m sure you will agree, but what I find shocking is the “it’s all about me” that comes along with anything in the lives of celebs. Just yesterday (Thursday), a representative for Michael’s wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, revealed that the film star

is something that came out of LA after it was thought that the word “depression” is something that a Hollywood actor should never have. When did we first hear of “Sex Addiction”? From Michael Douglas! Now these stars get treatment for this pointless and stupid phrase. I love sex. I seriously love it. If Mrs Ferguson and I were not so shattered with early mornings, we would be at it every minute of the day. That does not make me an addict. It’s biologically there for all time. It’s in our DNA, no treatment needed! Okay, Catherine went through a hard time with Michael and, as a fan, I pray that this great man will get well soon. But don’t you think he went through more than his wife? And was there really any need to send out a statement to the press that she was receiving treatment after a horrible year? From March 1999 to May 2000, my family and I went through the worst time ever because my Mother was ill with terminal cancer. We were devastated. For 14 months, we knew she was going to die. Anyone who has been through this period knows exactly how I feel, but that’s private and it should stay that way. Like any other normal person, I had to take it on the chin and deal with it. But it seems that for a multi-millionaire Welsh actress, it’s all too much. Yet at the same, she makes sure we all know she has two movies coming out. As we say back in Belfast: WISE UP! Joe

sought treatment for bipolar disorder at a health facility. The statement reads: “After dealing with the stress of the past year, Catherine made the decision to check in to a mental health facility for a brief stay to treat her Bipolar II disorder.” It continues: “She’s feeling great and looking forward to starting work this week on her two upcoming films.”” That’s great news, is it not? She got through it, but did they really have to mention her two upcoming movies? No is the obvious answer. Let’s look into this statement a little closer. It also says: “Catherine has had to deal with Michael’s illness and that’s been hard. She went in for a few days because she’s about to start working, and wanted to make sure she’s in top form, which she is.” See that sentence “a few days”? It’s beyond belief what her husband has gone through without a tear in his eye or excuses. And yet the wife has to go into a health facility for “a few days”. And what for? Bi-Polar disorder! If you are reading this and suffer from Bi-Polar, I can tell you now that you don’t! Bipolar disorder apparently, brings about unusual changes in mood and energy that can result in manic episodes, an overly-excitable state, a state of heightened sadness. You got any of those? I’m no doctor but I can tell you now that you are depressed. I have had all the above symptoms after a horrible episode in my life just a few years ago. I saw my doctor and he told me it was depression. This Bi-Polar mumbo-jumbo

Minted or skinted: who would know? THE ART of mixing quality articles with cheaper ones is very useful. If you do it properly, no one will know if you are minted, or skinted! Obviously, you can’t make your home look like a millionaire’s pad without spending anything, but there are certain things you can do to make it look as if you have spent more than you actually have. In the same way that women are past-masters (or should that be mistresses?) at mixing an expensive skirt or pair of shoes with a High Street top and costume jewellery, the same can be said with your home furnishings As long as it is done well, then no one need ever know, and the overall effect will be the one you are seeking to achieve. There are some items, of course, which should not be skimped on, and others that can be. For example, buying a cheap sofa or sofa bed may prove to be a false economy if it is uncomfortable, or if it breaks within a year and needs to be replaced. Beds also are an area that should not be skimped on because, generally speaking, the cheaper beds are likely to be uncomfortable. However, when it comes to items like a corner table (especially if it is covered up with a lamp, for example), you can skimp. Equally, cushions

and throws can be bought very cheaply, and can change the whole aspect of your room without you spending a fortune. If you have one good quality item you wish to be the focal point of the room, whether it is a chair, a cushion or a picture, you need to tone down everything else around it, so that it can be shown off at its best. Try neutral cream bedspreads, loads of cream cushions, and one jewel-red, expensive cushion just in the centre. It will look a million dollars! Pictures are very much a matter of personal taste, and you can spend a fortune on a real masterpiece. But from a personal point of view, particularly with modern art, I often can’t tell the difference! Any picture you like, and which tones with your room, will do the trick and again, need not cost a lot of money. In fact, why not frame some

of your own photos and use them as focal points of your home? Instead of an expensivelyframed mirror, adhesive mirror tiles can be bought for pennies and can be used to increase light in a dark area, such as a hallway. Don’t overdo it, because a few of them placed strategically will look more artistic. Just be careful not to place them directly opposite a door, or on stairways, as they can distort your perceptions, and cause accidents. “Less is more” is a saying often used in interior design, meaning that sometimes, if you take furniture and decorative items out of a setting, the effect is more pleasing. So one lovely vase or ornament can look a lot classier than a sideboard cluttered with photo frames and mementos. So, have a clearout, sell off some of your items, and make your home look more expensive into the bargain!

Phone fraud CONSUMERS face fraud risk from lost mobile phones, says Which? Three in ten mobile phone users are putting themselves at risk of fraud by storing personal information such as PIN numbers, passwords and home addresses on their phones, says Which? Mobile. This is especially concerning as almost nine million people in the UK have lost a mobile phone in the last five years and around 5.7 million have had their mobile stolen. Of these, at least 2.2 million people have lost their mobile more than once. Which? Mobile recommends

tion. For more tips on improving your mobile phone security go to http://conversation.which.co.uk/mobile/mob ile-phones/what-to-do-ifyou-lose-your-mobile-phone/ Tom McLennan, Head of Which? Mobile says, “Losing a mobile phone is not only a huge inconvenience; it can put your financial and personal security at risk too. Although it’s impractical to keep your phone locked up at all times, be safe and keep your private information to yourself. “If you do notice your mobile is missing, contact your provider straight away so they can stop it from being misused.”

Time to replace that old fridge? If you have been putting off replacing an old fridge or washing machine then wait no longer because the Canarian Government introduced an incentive plan on 16th March that will make replacing your old models a lot cheaper. The Canary Islands government, through the Department of Employment, Industry and Commerce and in collaboration with the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDEA) and the Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias (ITC) has introduced the initiative in an effort to encourage

people protect themselves against potential mobile-related fraud by taking simple steps, such as ensuring phones are mobile PIN or password protected and disguising any personal information. If a phone goes missing, the owner should immediately contact their provider to put a block on it, preventing thieves from running up big bills. Most smartphones offer apps or services – such as the iPhone app ‘Find my iPhone’ – that let the user locate their handset if it goes missing. Some also lock the phone remotely, or even remotely wipe all the data from the handset to stop thieves accessing personal informa-

people to buy more energy efficient appliances and vehicles powered by alternative energy, with an investment of some 2,587,490 euros. From now until the end of July, anyone interested in purchasing energy efficient appliances or vehicles may make the grant application required by going to any of the shops that offer the service, which will run until 31 July. The store will take care of any paperwork required so it’s easy to do. You must take your residencia and passport with you, the originals, and the stores will deliver the new and pick up the old models for you too. The ‘Plan Renove’, (Renewal Plan) provides discounts on purchases made to replace low energy efficiency appli-

ances and for the purchase of vehicles, both passenger and industrial, supplied with clean energy. This action is one of those that are included in the Action Plan for Strategy and Efficiency Savings (PAE4 +) of the Central Government. In this latest Renewal Plan, published in the BOC number 255, Wednesday, December 29, 2010, aid for replacement of appliances will range from 50 euros to 125 euros, and rates of compensation for the acquisition of vehicles ranging from 450 euros to 50,000 euros, depending on the type. The discounts applied in any case will not exceed 25% of the total price in the case of appliances, and 15% of the total price for the vehicles.

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

No garden, but you can grow your own veggies in pots JUST because you have no garden, in the true British sense, it doesn’t mean it stops you growing your own veggies. As I’ve said many times before, many vegetables can be grown in pots and containers, even hanging baskets. Garden Just because you have no garden, in the true British sense doesn’t mean it stops you growing your own veggies. As I’ve said many times before, many vegetables can be grown in pots and containers, even hanging baskets. So take a look at your terrace or balcony, where could you put a few pots, where would be a good place to put a hanging basket? Carrots, beetroot, cabbage, leek, spring onions, radish, cucumber, tomatoes all thrive in pots. Having said that cast your mind back to the ‘dwarf’ carrots they were planted as per instructions, but, as yet no little green shoots have appeared. I have the motto try, try again so I’m going to try some different seeds and see what happens. Anyway, that aside, you can even grow herbs and lettuce in containers. I recently planted up a herb garden as a present. Mints, basil, curry plant and parsley – a brilliant present and I did myself one while I was at it. It’s growing by the day, fresh herbs for culinary delights, the only downside is that the mint is growing rapidly, so I’ve decided to pot a few of the ‘shoots’ up and give them away to friends. Also, I’ve frozen the excess ready for mint sauce – delicious. The basil has grown also, but different leaves, so hopefully it’s going to flower. A herb garden would make a gorgeous Easter present for non-chocolate lovers.

The key to successful pots is good quality compost, sunshine, regular watering and keep an eye out for little pests. Now I like flowers, ok they’re no good on your Sunday dinner but there are no hard and fast rules to say that you can’t plant them in the same pot or container. Herbs, lettuce, marigolds and pansies go well together plus tiny violas go well with veggies. Most people know that the scent of marigolds deters flying pests. Here in Tenerife our main problem is the heat so you have to ensure that you keep your pots well watered. You can buy water retaining crystals to use in the compost while planting up, and if you look at the Canarians, they use vermiculite as on the top of their pots as it retains more moisture. You can use anything within reason as a container, even an old bucket or bin as long as it has drainage holes. Terracotta pots are pretty but they lose a lot of moisture, you can line your pots with plastic to reduce this, but it’s just easier to use plastic pots. The secret is to make sure whatever the container that it has plenty of drainage holes. Plus that the pot is big

enough. Most things will grow in a regular size pot but if you want to grow root vegetables – you’ll need a deep pot that’s at least 15-20 inches deep. Know your onions Large Spanish onions are common place here, and yes, cheap enough to buy in the veg market, but spring onions are somewhat of a rarity, although they are so easy to grow. Plant up a pot which is about 10 inches deep, it need to be long though so a window box trough is ideal, or those planters that hang on the side of a wall. The tiny white jewels enjoy sun, you need to sow every few weeks to get a regular supply, but they take about 16 weeks from seed to fork! The beauty is they will grow anywhere. The long gangly stems need to grow to about 6 inches tall, and then they can be gently pulled up, wash before you eat, or pickle. Now I have bought some cabbages as plug plants here, they’re doing well but the pots they are in are too small. The green fledgling plugs need to go in a pot which is about 15 inches deep, but it needs to be even wider. Obviously cabbages take up quite a lot of space, but as soon as the heart has formed

you can cut them at any time. They are susceptible to caterpillars so you need to keep a watchful eye. A swift spray of salt water soon resolves the problem. Carrots, beetroot, cabbage, leek, spring onions, radish, cucumber and tomatoes all thrive in pots. Having said, that cast your mind back to the ‘dwarf’ carrots. They were planted as per instructions but, as yet, no little green shoots have appeared. I recall the motto “Try, try again”, so I’m going to try some different seeds and see what happens. Anyway, that aside, you can even grow herbs and lettuce in containers. I recently planted up a herb garden as a present. Mints, basil, curry plant and parsley. It is turning out to be a brilliant present, and I did myself one while I was at it.

Flying Brands sales drooping MAIL ORDER flowers and gardening group Flying Brands has delivered a stark warning over profits after its sales fell in the face of strong competition. The group said this year’s profits were expected to be “materially” below market forecasts following a 19.8% plunge in like-for-like sales in the quarter to April 1. Its flowers business continues to be hit by competition from general retailers and heavy discounting from rivals, while its gardening arm also came under pressure from supermarkets and garden centres. With the economy in a poor state money spent on luxuries is always the first to go, with consumers looking all the time for better value for money. Jersey-based Flying Brands lost nearly a fifth of their value at one stage after the announcement, stating that it would have to renegotiate its bank terms. The update dashes hopes of a quick turnaround after

profits were almost wiped out in 2010, down by 91% to £22,000. The group had been hopeful that consumers would continue to splash out on flowers and gifts despite general spending caution. Unfortunately there was no Mother’s Day respite as trading failed to come up roses for the group’s main flowers division, with sales surrounding the event well below its expectations. Like-for-like flower orders in the quarter were 14.7% down on a year earlier. Within the gardening arm, bird food sales were badly hit by competition, although there was some good news as its Gardening Direct business saw a better start to April and sales continued to grow at Garden Centre Online. It said: “Overall we believe that our strategy for transforming our business remains the right one, but the continuing under-performance in the traditional flowers business and the recent decline in our bird food business means that profits for this year will be materially below market expectations.” Source Press Association

The enhanced beauty of nails NAILS come in a variety of shapes and sizes, naturally, and each person has features that are unique. You can have long fingers with wide nail beds, short fingers with short nail beds, and every combination in between. There are four basic nail shapes (either natural nails or nail extensions): oval, square, round, and pointed. So how do you know which shape suits you the best? Who doesn't want her fingers to look longer and leaner? A great nail shape which can take 10lbs off your hands is a softer oval or almond shape. It gives the illusion of length. If your hands are small, with short fingers, it is the perfect shape to make them look long and fine. This elegant, modern, feminine shape looks great on any woman, no matter what type of hands and fingers she has, The square nail is the classic acrylic shape - straight side walls, two sharp points on the tips, and a balanced curve, used mainly for the traditional French manicure and detailed nail-art designs. A square nail is not always the best choice for certain nail beds. In case you have small hands with short fingers, a square nail could make it appear shorter and stubbier. But for longer nail beds, the square shape can complement the nail and add length to the finger, as shown in one of the photos. My client has fine hands with long fingers, so the

Page 40

square shape looks perfect on her without making the hands look big. The round shape is more conservative and natural. It is used to create a softer, lessnoticeable look. If you have wide nail beds and large hands, then the rounded shape can make the hands look a bit thinner. If you take a second to look at the other photo, you will see that this lady has small hands and short fingers. That is why I recommended her to use the round shape, which makes her hands look more feminine. The pointed nail is not seen as often as other shapes. A pointed shape is a little more adventurous than, say, oval, or even square. But, given the right circumstances, a pointed nail can create length. Smaller hands with smaller nail beds can use a pointed nail to create a subtle appearance of length, while long, slender nail beds take pointed nails (usually combined with nails arts) to a more noticeable and extreme level. Now, let’s have a few words about the colours. Depending on your style and personality (NOT AGE), you can use various colours and

designs. A natural look is always pretty and feminine, no matter what type of nails you have. You can choose any of the nude and light pink shades (considering your skin tone). With these lighter colours, it is always easier to match them to your clothes, accessories etc. In case you like stronger, more vibrant, darker colours (, for instance, reds, dark reds, browns or even black), you have to pay more attention so that they match the clothes you wear and your skin tone, etc. They also look brilliant on short nails as well, and the only thing you should be careful with is in case your nails are short and small. That’s because sometimes, these colours can make them look even smaller. Once you have chosen your colour, I would suggest you have the same colour on your toenails as well, or that wear French polish on toes, which goes well with every colour on fingernails. If you have any questions concerning nails that I have not covered, do not hesitate to call or visit me at Robot for a free consultation.

Beginners’ fitness: What you really need to know WHEN you first start out exercising to get your body fit and healthy, it can seem difficult knowing what the right kind of training is for you - and what kit you need for successful exercise sessions. As a result, here are the realbuzz.com answers to several frequently-asked fitness questions often asked by beginner exercisers. I’ve always been too scared to go to the gym to exercise. Won’t it be full of bodybuilders and super-skinny models? There was a time when gyms were full of stick-thin women and competitive body-building males. Thankfully, those days are gone and modern gyms are now full of a wide range of shapes, sizes and fitness levels. It’s still a good idea to check out a few gyms before deciding which one to join, though, because different gyms do have different ambiences. I want to start running exercise. What equipment do I need? The most important parts of your running kit are your running shoes and sports bra. Buying a pair of running shoes can be a daunting task as there are hundreds of pairs on the market. These are our top tips to help you get the right pair:

Forget the colour of the shoes; prioritise with fit, function and feel. Take advice from a knowledgeable and trustworthy sales person (preferably at a specialist running shop). Understand why you require the product being sold. Only buy sports shoes after you’ve tried them on. Keep your feet dry. Running-specific socks will help stop moist or sweaty feet from blistering. You will need a well-fitting, comfortable sports bra. This is essential to avoid painful bouncing and, worse, potential permanent drooping! It may be best to get advice at a specialist running or sports shop. Clothing-wise, initially, you will probably be able to make do with the kit you already have. Comfortable, loose shorts and T-shirts or, in colder weather, tracksuit bottoms and layered cotton tops are fine. I’ve heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Can you suggest some healthy breakfast foods to aid my exercise? Yes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and here are some healthy suggestions: · Porridge (with skimmed milk) and berries (raspberries, strawberries or blueberries) · Beans on granary toast with no butter · Bagel with reduced fat cream cheese and smoked salmon · Fruit and low fat yogurt

· Crumpets and fruit spread (no butter!) · Muesli and soya milk or semiskimmed milk · Pure fruit juice and iron fortified breakfast cereal · Fruit smoothie · Scrambled or poached egg on granary toast I always ache the day after jogging exercise. What am I doing wrong in my training? Even if you’re relatively fit, you will probably experience aching muscles when you begin to jog. Here are the reasons why and what you can do about it: You are not used to exercising. If this is the case then take it easy ... Start off really slowly — just 10 to 15 minutes for each session every other day. Build up your times no more than 10 per cent per week. You are not warming-up, stretching and cooling-down properly for exercise. This could lead to aching if not carried out. You’ve over exercised. Start off slowly and don’t increase the total time of your running more than 10% per week I can’t afford gym membership. What’s the best way to get fit at home? With inexpensive equipment and some imagination, you can still achieve excellent results at home. The following list of basic equipment will start you off well: · Skipping rope · Stability ball · Exercise mat · Small set of dumbbells You will need to have structured exercise sessions, with a warm-up and stretching exercises before the main session, and a cool-down and more stretching after that. An equally important factor with a home-training session is executing every exercise with correct technique. This is particularly critical and expert guidance will maximise your gains and prevent injury. If you can’t get professional advice, then lining up with a like-minded friend to train with can really help. Not only can you monitor each other’s technique but you can also help motivate each other during the workout.

Blind faith in vitamin D VITAMIN D supplements may ward off the loss of vision stemming from an age-related eye disease in women younger than 75. Higher blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with a significant-decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The condition, caused by progressive damage to the centre of the retina at the

back of the eye, affects around 2% of people over 50 in developed countries. And more than 230,000 people in the UK are believed to be partially blind because of AMD. Researchers in the US examined data on 1,313 women taking part in a large investigation of age-related eye disease. They found that in women under 75, both vitamin D blood levels and consumption of the vitamin from food sources and supplements

were linked to a reduced risk of early AMD. Women with the highest vitamin D intake were 59% less likely to develop the disease than those with the lowest. But the association was seen only with vitamin D consumed in foods and supplements. Time spent in the sun did not affect risk levels, even though the most important source of vitamin D is its generation in the skin as a reaction to sunlight. The top food sources of

vitamin D among study participants were milk, fish, fortified margarine and fortified cereal. The scientists, led by Dr Amy Millen, from Buffalo University, New York, wrote in the journal Archives of Ophthalmology: “More studies are needed to verify this association. “We also need to understand more of the potential interaction between vitamin D status and genetic and lifestyle factors with respect to risk of early AMD.”

Wrist ‘watch’ is key to diabetes in tubby kids THE size of their wrist may provide an earlywarning sign of diabetes and heart disease in overweight children. Scientists in Italy have found a “strong” association between wrist circumference and a major risk factor for both conditions in 477 overweight and obese children

with an average age of 10. The link with insulin resistance was related to the size of the wrist bone, rather than the amount of fatty tissue surrounding it. Insulin resistance occurs when the body cannot use insulin efficiently to break down blood sugar. It is a marker for an increased risk of diabetes in later life, and also heart disease. Raised insulin levels are

an indication of developing insulin resistance. Using a simple tape measure, the Italian scientists found wrist circumference explained 12% of differences in levels of insulin resistance and blood insulin between children. The bigger the wrist, the more likely a child was to show signs of an underlying problem. A scanning technique showed that the amount of bone in the wrist

accounted for 17% of the variation seen. Lead researcher Professor Raffaella Buzzetti, from the Sapienza University in Rome, said: “Wrist circumference is easily measured. “If our work is confirmed by future studies, wrist circumference could one day be used to predict insulin resistance and cardiovascular (heart and artery) disease risk.”

Debtors and jobless feel the burden in these hard times IT doesn’t seem altogether surprising that figures obtained by the BBC suggest that economic problems could be fuelling a rise in depression. Data obtained from the NHS Prescription Services by the Beeb shows a dramatic increase in the number of prescriptions for antidepressant drugs. And the number of prescriptions for the most common group of anti-depressants has risen by 43% in the past four years to nearly 23 million annually. Doctors and charities say

they are being contacted increasingly by people struggling with debt and job worries. They say financial woes can often act as a “trigger”, but add that other factors may also be playing a role in the rise. The figures, disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act, cover antidepressant prescribing from 2006 to 2010, during which time the country had to cope with the banking crisis, recession and the start of the spending cuts. Emer O’Neill, chief executive of Depression Alliance UK, said the rise in prescriptions could be down to a combination of money problems and the stigma of

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

depression beginning to lift. She added: “There is an increase in the number of people suffering depression. GPs are better at diagnosing it than before, and there is now a better access to treatment than ever. But there is a higher number of people with depression than there was before. “The financial strain on many people has never been worse. They are worried about their spiralling bills and where the next meal is coming from. It can make you feel very down, and it soon becomes a cycle. “Depression also causes loneliness, which can be fatal. Sufferers need to take it seriously and not ignore

the signs. There is no ‘onesize-fits-all’ in depression, but all people should have access to the right treatment through their GPs.” Paul Burstow, the Care Services minister, said: “The last recession has left many people facing tough times. If people do experience mental health problems, the NHS is well-placed to help. “We’re boosting funding for talking therapies by £400 million over the next four years. This will ensure that modern, evidencebased therapies are available to all who need them, whether their depression or anxieties are caused by economic worries or anything else.”

Duerr’s new jar gets you out of a jam A new innovation for glass jar lids is set to bring welcome relief to anyone who relies on tea towels, hot water or a strong partner every time they are faced with opening a jar of their favourite preserve. Duerr’s, the independent jam maker, is introducing the innovative OrbitTM lid across their range of jams and marmalades nationwide following a successful trial in Morrisons stores. Consumer response to the new lids was overwhelmingly positive. While 100% of survey respondents found the Orbit lid easier to open than a normal jar, 86% considered it ‘much easier’. The simple mechanism, developed by Crown

Page 42

Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCK), a world leader in metal packaging, reduces the effort required to get the jar open. The appearance of the OrbitTM lid is very similar to a normal twist-off lid, but it is actually in two parts: a central panel is sealed to the jar by vacuum, and an outer ring is screwed in place to provide further protection To open the jar, the user simply twists the ring in the same way as opening a normal twist-off lid. Twisting the ring firstly loosens the ring, then smoothly pushes the panel away from the jar to break the seal. In this way, the ring acts as a tool to break the seal. As the panel is free to move within the ring, the sound made by breaking the seal is accentuated, assuring the consumer of the contents’ freshness. Once opened, the jar may be reclosed and reopened as usual.

86% of people who purchased the Duerr’s Easy Open products during the Morrisons store trial claim it would now influence their purchasing decision. Responses to the survey were incredibly positive with 95% of respondents choosing to leave additional feedback including ‘hallelujah’, ‘A fantastic piece of inspired engineering’ and ‘whoever designed this lid should get a medal’. The Orbit Easy Open lids are now gradually being phased in on the range of Duerr’s marmalade and jam products and are already in stores nationwide. As part of initial research into the usability of the new lid, Design Futures at Sheffield Hallam University were commissioned by Crown to evaluate how the use of the Orbit Easy Open lid could significantly change how people open jars in their home. The resulting research indicated that although many people liked to purchase glass jars because they were re-sealable, reusable and recyclable many women commented on their difficulty to open and even some men claimed that jars could be stubborn.

The study suggested that 22% of the participants that took part in the survey could not open a jar with a normal lid, with the percentage increasing to 40% for women over 50 years of age. Participants that could open both types of lid confirmed that the Orbit lid was much easier to open. Several consumer groups in the UK and across Europe have raised their concerns about the difficulties of opening various types of food packaging, highlighting jars as one of the problem areas. With an aging population the demand for easier to open packaging will only increase. Richard Duerr of Duerr’s comments: “The simplest innovations are the ones that truly have the biggest impact on our everyday lives. This isn’t just a product for those with arthritis or weak wrists; it’s a product that everyone can use. “Duerr’s has a long history of investing in market changing technology. In 1905 my great, great, great, great grandfather Fred Duerr pioneered the method of vacuum sealing jars helping our jams and marmalades to retain their natural colour, a method now

commonly used everywhere. “The new Orbitä Easy Open lid has the potential to be just as everyday life chang-

ing. The trouble is, I’m not sure that my wife needs me around the house anymore!”

Michele on crowded Marathon trail again

The Roast House at Los Cristianos

“YOU’VE never been to the Roast House?” was the response when I admitted, that after eight years on the Island, I had never crossed the threshold of this well-established restaurant. Having heard of its fine reputation, I was really looking forward to our lunch date. We were greeted by Emma, our waitress, and also owner Keith, who is really proud of the quality of the food and the service in his restaurant, which was one of the first in the area nearly 19 years ago. As we are seated and given the menus, Keith informs us that the lunch menu is new every day, with a choice of beautiful, homemade produce, and that there are quite a few offers. I will get into these in a moment, but let me talk about the food first. I opted for Lamb and Mint Pie, which was served with chipped potatoes and garden peas. And I would just like to say that the photograph I took of it has been shown to everyone. The meal was beautiful, succulent, chunky (great word) and rich. The same could be said about the Cheese and Onion Quiche my partner ordered. Both dishes were freshly-prepared and so tasty.

Emma then brought out the dessert, which was the ultimate for chocoholics: a fabulous Fudge Cake which was also homemade, thoroughly delicious and warm, accompanied by cream and ice cream. And with the addition of chopped almonds, it made for a new take on an old favourite. After lunch, we sat for a while with Keith, who was eager to tell us about the new offers - more than I can mention in full here - and also the addition of a Happy Hour. That runs from Monday to Saturday (5.30-6.30pm) with

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

champagne cocktails and sangria for 2.95 euros, and also a selection of canapés. A lovely start to an evening. The other offers he chatted about included diners on Sunday receiving a voucher for the following week for the carvery at only 6.95 euros, or fish and chips for 5.25 euros, as well as midweek diners receiving a voucher for free house wine, to be used on any Sunday. Also, with a three-course evening meal, you can have any starter, main and dessert from the menu for only 15.95 euros, which

Iberia adds 6,000 seats for Easter As predicted, the outlook for the Easter week is extremely positive here in Tenerife, following a prolonged upward trend resulting from the ongoing unrest in North Africa. Now, news is just in that the Spanish airline Iberia will be significantly increasing its number of seats available during the period. Specifically, some 6,000 extra seats have been put on sale for Canary Island destinations and Iberia fully expects that they will be sold out.

Page 44

This move to meet additional demand during the Easter holidays will affect services to several Spanish domestic and European destinations. Specifically, capacity to such domestic destinations as Seville, Jerez de la Frontera, Malaga, Granada, and the Canary Islands is being increased by some 7,000 seats in total. The Spanish airline is also adding 3,500 seats on its connecting flights to Geneva, Zurich, Lisbon, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Berlin, with this last accounting for more than 1,300 of them. The extra seats will be available from April 15th through April 25th, and particularly on April 16th, 20th, 21st and 25th.

FIRST CHOICE has announced it has become the UK’s first mainstream holiday company to offer all its hotel and resorts on an All Inclusive basis. First Choice (part of TUI UK & Ireland) is marking a major travel industry milestone by becoming the UK’s first mainstream holiday company to offer 100% of its hotel and resorts on an All Inclusive basis – including flights, inresort transfers, hotel accommodation, three meals a day and unlimited local drinks as standard. This is set to be available to book on-line from May 2011. According to First Choice this offer had been created in “direct response to the needs of today’s consumers who want more control over their holiday spend, and the growing demand for All Inclusive holidays.” Driven by the emerging trend for All Inclusive holidays, which now account for 65% of First Choice sales, budget con-

scious Brits are cottoning on to the fact that All Inclusive holidays are the way forward. In five years (2004-2009) the All Inclusive holiday market has grown by 32%, part of the 14.4 million package holidays estimated to be taken in 2010 according to latest research from Mintel. Johan Lundgren, managing director of TUI UK & Ireland, believes this will build further on the reputation of First Choice as one of the most innovative, yet accessible holiday companies in the UK. “This is a major milestone for the UK travel industry and an exciting and timely transformation for the First Choice brand. All Inclusive is becoming the holiday of choice for many British consumers, offering them great value for money, yet there is no mainstream holiday company currently offering a completely All Inclusive portfolio. “First Choice will become the home of All Inclusive, offering the best of both worlds – a unique feeling of indulgence combined with practical control over their

holiday spending – whatever their budget.” The decision to offer wholly All Inclusive has not gone down well with everyone, according to press reports the First Choice decision has been denounced by fellow tour operators. The Association of Independent Tour Operators (Aito) called it “a massive blow” to local economies and “a slap in the face to sustainable tourism”. However, the tour operator rejected the criticism. UK board member and director of communications Christian Cull said: “We are as committed now as ever to making our operations more sustainable. We have demonstrated this

through our three-year Holidays Forever commitments.” First Choice announced the move last Friday, pointing out two-thirds of its summer 2011 programme was already all-inclusive. Aito chairman Derek Moore said: “It is extremely disappointing for many destinations. A local restaurant outside the gates of an all-inclusive hotel might as well put up the ‘closed’ sign right now. “The First Choice announcement is good for the budgetconscious tourist, [who is] disinterested and incurious about their destination, [and] who cares little or nothing for their host country.”

Tourism figures continue to rise Tourism figures for March continue to confirm the upward trend that the Island has been experiencing since the outbreak of unrest in

North African nations. March figures were up here in the Canary Islands by a stunning 21%, totalling just over one million visitors.

Travel industry wants tax break DESPITE the recent rally in tourism figures, representatives of the sector are calling on the Government in Madrid to provide financial aide by way of tax cuts to the industry in order to assist in the recuperation of the tourism

situation all across Spain. Representatives from airlines, travel agents and the hostelry sector have collaborated in the request but have as yet received no response from the government.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV

Behind the Wheel

The evocative Evoque is such a temptation! THE verdict on Range Rovers’ ground-breaking new star Evoque it will almost certainly change the way we think about 4x4s forever. It’s one of the year’s mosteagerly anticipated new cars all the predictions are that it rewrite the 4x4 rulebook, just as the original Range Rover did in 1970. In fact, it’s `probably one of the most important British cars in decades. And with a supermini’s emissions, the Evoque is set to end Land Rover’s gas-guzzling reputation once and for all. In addition, it has a squat, compact look, which makes it stand out. Take in stunning looks, handling closer to that of a sporty coupé than a four-wheel-drive, and all the ride comfort and sophistication you’d expect from a Range Rover, and sales predictions of 100,000 units a year are already looking conservative. This is a design tri-

umph, faithful to the 2008 LRX concept car in almost every way. The only clue is the longer rear-roof spoiler. With an unimaginable 380,000 colour, trim and option combinations, it’s also exceedingly bespoke. Step inside, and the link between the normal Range Rover and the Époque is clear,

although the newcomer boasts a trendier look, with dials and controls are scaled down to take into account the car’s smaller dimensions. There’s no skimping on quality, though, because the sumptuous leather and brushed-aluminium trim is touch of class. The 2.2-litre diesel unit is extremely quiet and refined,

even at low speeds - thanks to Land Rover’s latest stop-start system, it can return close to 50mpg. The six-speed automatic box is also slick, giving you the choice of letting it change gears itself, or overriding the shifts with the steering-wheel-mounted paddles. It also features Land Rover’s first-ever electric

power-steering system. Land Rover’s Mike Cross says: “We wanted the Evoque to be more sporty, edgy and agile than any of our other models. We wanted it to push the boundaries for this type of vehicle.” They’ve certainly done that because it tackles corners with minimal body roll, and for han-

dling, the Evoque has already been benchmarked against the MINI Cooper and Audi TT. But engineers haven’t used rockhard suspension to achieve this. The car retains the sophisticated ride of the larger Range Rover, so it remains as comfortable as your favourite armchair. And comfortable it really is. The Evoque has an extremely smooth diesel engine, even at 4,000rpm. There is no raucous diesel clatter and no droning or booming. It is linear and very hushed, providing the sophistication you’d expect of a Range Rover. On top of that, it is actually one second faster than a V6 diesel Range Rover Sport to 60mph, hitting the mark in eight seconds. It really is quicker than it first appears. The Evoque, priced at £38,990 - reasonable for this spectacular package - will be available in September. And first impressions suggest you’d better get your order in. Now!

Etherea, the infinite concept model INFINITI, the luxury car division of Japanese manufacturer Nissan, are known for their large, expansive models. Now, however, they have

produced their first compact car, the Etherea concept, which goes right against the grain because it is an upmarket hatchback model. Unlike Infiniti’s existing cars, which are all large, luxurious 4x4s or saloons, the styling is similar to that of Infiniti’s

15 April 2011 - 21 April 2011

Essence concept, which was unveiled at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. This smaller car really does enter new territory for the company, and bosses are hoping to attract some younger

buyers with this model, which is just 4.4m long and will be powered by a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain. When the car reaches production in 2014, costing around £25,000, it is likely to

feature turbo-charged, fourcylinder engines from Mercedes-Benz. The technology is not especially new, but Infiniti claim the Etherea will benefit from the combined, best qualities

of a hatchback, saloon, coupé and crossover. And that spells sleek and practical. The company have also hinted that the doors could have a unique hinging arrangement..

New boss, same old dross CD Tenerife 0 Huesca 1 ALL right, the headline might be a little strong because Tenerife actually played okay against Huesca. But it was another home defeat and, if 90% of fans thought we were down before the start of the match, another 8% have now accepted the inevitable as well. New-old manager David Amaral made a few changes for his first line-up, and he was true to his word concerning local players. Iriome, Omar and Ricardo, who all started in midfield, while youngster Josmar was given the last 10 minutes. There is no doubting that the team tried, but Tenerife are still lacking that, that, that ... something! Eight of the players involved against Huesca played in La Liga last season. These players shouldn’t be in a side who are secondbottom of the second division. But they are, and again, it was a moment of madness which led to the defeat. In a tight match, with both sides having decent chances, it was always going to go to the side who scored first. Jokin had been on the park just 10 minutes when he connected with Molinero’s cross to head home unmarked. It was sloppy defending and came at a time when Tenerife were on top. Ricardo wasted a plethora of free-kicks, Nino managed to miss from six yards and Tenerife’s corners were being scrambled clear. As much as they tried, Tenerife never really looked like equalising, even when Huesca were reduced to 10 men late on after Echaide’s farcical sending-off. Canarian Weekly ratings Tenerife: Aragoneses 7, Marc Bertrán 6, David Prieto 7 (Josmar 79min), Pablo Sicilia 6, Carlos Bellvis 7, Juanlu 6, Ricardo 7, Kitoko 7, Omar 8, Iriome 7 (Igor 70min 1), Nino 6. Huesca: Andrés 7; Roberto

For once, there were some positives to come out of the defeat. At the back, Tenerife looked much more compact, but they will have to shuffle the pack again this weekend. David Prieto and Marc Betran will be suspended, although Luna is back from his ban. Bellvis was sharp at leftback and he worked well with Omar down that flank. His runs and general support play gave Tenerife a sharper edge. Also, Iriome was a massive success. The Icod youngster held the ball up well, his touch was good, and he revelled playing in the hole just behind Nino. Similar tactics should work on Sunday against Alcorcon. They are a decent side who have had an amazing first

season at this level. Their home form is outstanding, but the defence remains their Achilles heel. If Tenerife stick with the wide boys and Iriome alongside Nino, then they have a good chance. Despite their problems at the back, last week’s Huesca loss was the first time Tenerife had failed to score in six matches. Alcorcon have hit seven goals in their last two games, but have troubled the scorers once only in their previous five games. The plan is simple. Keep it tight! Alcorcon still have a chance of making the play-offs, but the fact they have something to play for should help Tenerife. They will go in search of holes and should give the visitors chances. The star man is Quini, whose goal-scoring exploits have caught the eye of many a scout. QPR and Fulham have been among the clubs tracking him - and it’s easy

to see why. He is a Britishstyle striker, bulky, good in the air and with a decent first touch. He is not alone in having a sterling season.

Borja, Nagore and Mora regularly get three-star billing. It’s a tough fixture, but we are down to that strange time of the season. The kick-

off time could upset the hosts, as will the expected high temperatures. Yes, I am clutching at straws!

Betty’s Grand Slam hot pot lights up Presentation Night PLAYERS and supporters turned out in record numbers for Oasis Fm Darts League’s annual Presentation Night at Showtime, in Las Americas, last Friday. Entertainment was provided by Pip Brown and, of course, the teams competing for the Jurgen Trophy and Sabrina Seal Cup finals. In the Jurgen semi finals, a slightly out-of-form Bubbles (Phoenix Bar) was brushed aside by London (Nauta Bar). Walter, of the Silver Surfers, was then given the same treatment by Mitch, to set up an all-Nauta final. As we have seen this season, both players know how to chuck a dart, and a close final was expected. But Mitch was in no mood to show any mercy to his team-mate and took the trophy with a comfortable 4-1 win. Next up, Betty and Shanny contested the Sabrina final. An extra bit of glory was at stake for Cafe Rood’s Betty as she strived to complete a grand slam in ladies’ competitions. And, sadly for Shanny, she was on the receiving end of some classy darts by Betty, who completed her clean sweep. Many congratulations to Betty and Mitch. After we had all been well fed and watered, it was time for the season’s silverware to be dished out, and a steady

stream of winners and runners-up made their way to the stage (some a bit wobblier than others by this time!). However, there was one particular trophy award that was incredibly poignant. The

The Oasis Fm Darts League is now taking registrations for the new season, which begins in early May.

Amigos Bad Girls managed second place in the ladies’ trebles early in the season with a certain young lady by the name of Marilyn as part of the team. This brave lady, who has been unable to play darts for most of the season, received a standing ovation as she made her way on to the

stage to collect her trophy with Sheena and Ann. There was barely a dry eye in the house. Many congratulations to all trophy winners, and a big thank-you to the Showtime team for hosting the evening. Let’s do it all again next season! By Geoff Huxtable

Superstars Hammer champions! ble. Fellow-strugglers 8 Ball Massive and Dreamers both got excellent wins. Dreamers’ 8-2er over Target was their biggest of the season, and 8 Ball’s win at Bar 180 A came from nowhere! Bottom side La Caña also upset the form book with a

fine derby draw with Phoenix. Atlantis Sharks ended Toscales’ unbeaten run in 2011, while Rat Pack returned to winning ways Legends B are back on top of Division Two after their routine win over Exiles, and a stunning 9-1 defeat for

Gaffers at Inn The Pink. The Pinkies have already shown they can produce against anyone in their run to the cup semi-final. But Gaffers have been electric recently, until last Tuesday of course. They just weren’t in it, and Neil’s last-frame win stopped a 10-

0er! That has thrown the title race wide open and given Phoenix Potters and Bar Tasca a sniff at the top spot. Both got solid wins, and don’t dismiss Hammers C in the promotion party. Their derby win over Palms B sends them to a season-high sixth.
