The Royal Wedding

King Juan says no to Royal wedding invite But the Queen Sofia will attend, along with Spain’s Prince and Princess JUAN CARLOS will not be attending today’s Royal Wedding, although the Spanish King and Queen were both invited. Queen Sofia will be among the guests at Westminster Abbey to see Prince William wed. But the King is staying at home because he generally attends family marriages only, or those of close friends. The Zarzuela Palace in Madrid has confirmed that Queen Sofía, together with the Prince and Princess of Asturias, Felipe and Letizia, will be attending, but their two young daughters have not been invited, so perhaps the King is on baby-sitting duty! The Queen, her son and the Princess all travelled together last summer to the World Cup in South Africa, when the King was recovering from a lung operation. Initially, only Spain’s King and Queen were invited, but it appears that Prince Charles, father of the bridegroom, intervened to add the Prince and Princess to the list after being entertained by them during his recent visit to Spain. It was a curious omission in the first place because the Duke of Wales was a guest of honour at the wedding of

Felipe and Letizia, a divorced television newsreader, in Madrid in 2004. He attended both the ceremony and the sumptuous banquet that followed. Felipe, like Prince Charles, is a great-great-great-grandson of Queen Victoria, and what made the snub even more surprising is that space had been found at Westminster Abbey for the owner of a Spanish tile company, Manuel Colonques, and his wife, Delfina. Senor Colonques has donat-

ed generously to Charles’s personal charities, and his company, Porcelanosa, paid a “significant proportion” of the costs of a lavish charity dinner at Buckingham Palace in February. William and Kate are said to have invited “close friends only”, totalling a staggering 1,900, but only 600 will continue on to Buckingham Palace to feast on the buffet-style lunch reception, hosted by The Queen. And that number will shrink to 300 for the evening dinner-

dance. Naturally, tickets for the biggest British Royal wedding since Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles in July 1981 were hard to come by. But among those who made the cut were Posh and Becks England football legend David Beckham and his wife, ex-Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, Beckham and William became pals when they appeared as ambassadors during England’s failed bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Other celebrities invited to the wedding are singer Elton John, film director Guy Ritchie, and “Mr. Bean” actor Rowan Atkinson, and Paul McCartney is rumoured to be singing during the celebrations later on. The Spencers, relatives of Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana, will also be there, along with members of the House of Windsor. William’s relatives from his father’s side of the family have also been invited, but a notable absentee will be Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and former wife of Prince Andrew. Fifteen members of the Middleton family have also been invited, including Kate’s sister, London socialite Pippa Middleton. As well as Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Hindu representatives among the chosen multitude, there will also members of minority faiths, including Jains, Zoroastrians and Buddhists. About 40 foreign royals and 60 governors-generals and realm prime ministers have confirmed their attendance, including Prince Albert of Monaco, who weds South African swimmer Charlene Wittstock on 1st July. The heads of government include UK coalition leaders David Cameron and Nick

Clegg, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and her New Zealand counterpart John Key. But Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper declined his invitation because he is focusing on his country’s general election on Monday. World leaders such as US President Barack Obama and French Prime Minister Nicolas Sarkozy have not been invited, and neither have former Labour PMs Gordon Brown and Tony Blair. Baroness Thatcher and Sir John Major both received invites, but Lady Thatcher, in fading health, politely declined. The event will be televised to some two billion people worldwide, while up to 1½m spectators will line the streets to salute the wedding party, travelling to and from Westminster. Already, a tented “village” has been built near Westminster Abbey as royalists from as far afield as Zimbabwe, America and Croatia have bagged a treasured look-out spot before the huge crowds descend. A huge security operation has been put in place, at a cost of some £20m, but experts predict a boom time for traders in London especially as the crowds pour in to the capital.

Syrian Ambassador is not welcome now THE Foreign Office has confirmed that the Syrian Ambassador’s invitation to the wedding has been withdrawn over the treatment of protesters. The last minute U-Turn on Dr Sami Khiyami’s place on the guest list came yesterday (Thursday), just 24 hours before the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and follows widespread condemnation. Meanwhile, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair says he does not mind being omitted from the guest list. “I’m delighted for the Royal

Page 02

couple,” he told Columbian TV. “It will be a great wedding, and it is sensible to invite people from different walks of life instead of politicians. It’s not an issue at all and I wish them every happiness.” Earlier this week, Dr Khiyami was called to the Foreign Office to be told that Britain regarded his government’s use of force against the demonstrators as “unacceptable”. The permanent under-secretary, Simon Fraser, said the Syrian government should immediately halt all attacks against protesters and rein in the army and security forces. The move was part of a coordinated action by France,

Germany, Italy and Spain, who also summoned the Syrian ambassadors in their countries. A Foreign Office spokesperson said: “Representatives of countries with which the UK has normal diplomatic relations have been invited to the wedding. “An invitation does not mean endorsement or approval of the behaviour of any government, but simply that we have normal diplomatic relations with that country. “In the light of this week’s attacks against civilians by Syrian security forces, which we have condemned, the Foreign Secretary has decided that the presence of the Syrian Ambassador at the

Royal Wedding would be unacceptable. ”Buckingham Palace shares the view of the Foreign Office that it is not considered appropriate for the Syrian Ambassador to attend the wedding.” Shadow defence minister Michael Dugher questioned some of the guests, while Blair and his successor, Gordon Brown, were omitted. The Labour MP said: “It seems odd that two former prime ministers are excluded, but we have some quite dubious people being invited. “The palace keeps saying this is a private wedding, but it’s a huge national celebration. There should be extraordinary sensitivity in relation to the invitations.”

The Royal Wedding

www.canarianweekly.com

The Abbey ‘Forest’ is Happy couple by all branching out to put moved the affection Kate in right mood PRINCE William and Kate Middleton have been “incredibly moved” by the affection shown to them since their engagement.

AS Kate Middleton left her family home on Wednesday afternoon gardeners were spotted preparing trees for the Royal Wedding. As the bride-to-be drove away from her Berkshire home alongside sister Pippa, workers unloaded trees at Westminster Abbey. She ordered more than four tons of foliage, including eight 20ft-high trees, to recreate a lavish English country garden inside Westminster Abbey. Under the guidance of her so-called “floral designer” Shane Connolly, six English Field Maples have been installed in the historic church to create a “Living Avenue”, under which guests will walk to their seats. Each of the trees has been placed in a planter, designed by Mr Connolly and handcrafted by artisans on the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove estate. The entire scheme is believed to have cost up to £50,000 certainly not quite the “austerity” wedding St James’s Palace originally had in mind. According to royal sources, the idea was suggested by Mr Connolly as a way of mirroring

the Abbey’s famous arches. Kate loved the idea, but agreed on the environmental-

ly-friendly proviso that the trees were seasonal and could be re-planted.

So on Wednesday, the 15year-old maples, wrapped in purple ribbons and each weighing half-a-ton, were delivered in two articulated lorries to the Abbey’s Great West Door. Four workers struggled for more than half-an-hour with a miniature forklift truck to take the first tree into the Abbey, but were forced to turn it on its side. Two pyramid-shaped ornamental Hornbeams were also delivered to create a leafy “frame” around the choir. The rest of the Abbey has now been bedecked in armfuls of cream-and-white flowers.

In a message printed at the beginning of their official wedding programme, the couple say they are deeply touched by people’s reactions as they prepare for “one of the happiest days of our lives”. The words of the bride and groom were released as it was revealed that today’s traditional wedding service will be the epitome of “Britishness”. Their message reads: “We are both so delighted that

you are able to join us in celebrating what we hope will be one of the happiest days of our lives. “The affection shown to us by so many people during our engagement has been incredibly moving, and has touched us both deeply. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone most sincerely for their kindness.” The keepsake programme, which includes the full order of service for the ceremony, also features a new blackand-white portrait of the couple by celebrated fashion photographer Mario Testino. In a close-up shot, the couple are wearing matching, open-necked, white shirts and are smiling broadly, with Kate leaning towards William.

THE music of Elgar, Britten and Vaughan Williams will sound out around Westminster Abbey throughout the much-anticipated service. From the popular hymn Jerusalem to the quintessential English melody Greensleeves, the couple have embraced the nation’s musical heritage with their choice of choral pieces and compositions. St James’s Palace said that many of the “stunning” pieces were picked by the bride and bridegroom for their “theatre”. It was also revealed that Kate will not promise to “obey” her new husband when taking her vows, but instead will “love, comfort, honour and keep” him. William’s father, the Prince of Wales, stepmother the Duchess of Cornwall and Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, will all act as witnesses during the ceremony. Best man Prince Harry, as

Page 04

well as Kate’s sister Pippa and brother James, will also sign the historic marriage registers. The bride will walk up the aisle to the dramatic sounds of a coronation anthem - the soaring, choral masterpiece I Was Glad by Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry, from Psalm 122. It was composed for the crowning of Prince William’s great-great-great grandfather Edward VII at Westminster Abbey in 1902, but is also popular at weddings. As the choir starts to sing, the bride will begin her 3½minute procession on her father’s arm through the Nave and Quire to meet her Prince. The newly-weds will leave the Abbey to the sounds of William Walton’s rousing, orchestral march Crown Imperial, which was also played at the wedding of Charles and Diana.

Their idyllic love nest is hidden away on the quietest of islands Bank Holiday will cost Britain billions

THE young royals have a love nest in a cottage in north Wales, a few miles from RAF Valley on the island of Anglesey, where William is stationed as a helicopter pilot. It is well hidden behind trees and close to one of the loveliest, golden beaches of Anglesey, opposite Llanddwyn Island and its lighthouse, which can be reached on foot at low tide. A church there is dedicated to Saint Dwynwen, which is a good sign for the couple since Dwynwen has been watching over and protecting Welsh lovers since the Middle Ages. She is honoured by the Welsh on 25th January every year, giving them the privilege of celebrating Valentine’s Day twice. Yet the unspoken question floats in the Welsh air when one observes the sheepstudded moors: won’t Kate be terribly bored on this little island, buffeted by waves and winds? Maybe not! “We do have a gardening club and a bridge club,” affirms Lady Rhonda Boston, an Anglesey resident who has fallen under Prince William’s charm ever since she bumped into him while he was out hunting pheasant. Katie Nicholl, royal correspondent and author of William in Love, believes that Kate will be just fine there, as she will appreciate the spectacular landscapes and be able to devote time to her passion for

photography. Nicholl also says that Kate and William enjoy having friends over to wine and dine. It is the perfect place to nest, and it seems that the royal couple have made it clear they wish to start a family. The young royals, fond of long, nature strolls, will be able to enjoy the Coastal Path which traverses a variety of protected areas: over 125 miles of diverse landscapes, including sand dunes, salt marshes, inlets and cliffs. They may even spot a red squirrel or two because the island is one of the few places in the UK where they can still be seen. William need travel only a few miles from home to the RAF base in Valley, where he is a helicopter pilot in their searchand-rescue unit. Island dwellers might meet him doing some shopping at Tesco in Holyhead, the nearby ferry port with a service to Ireland. They could even bump into him at the White Eagle Pub in Rhoscolyn, whose terrace has a gently sloping view towards the sea. The first official event car-

ried out by the couple after their wedding was announced took place on a nearby beach, at Trearddur Bay, where they named and christened the RNLI’s newest lifeboat, the Hereford Endeavour. The station with the interminable Welsh name, Ynys Môn (Mother of Wales), Menhirs (prehistoric upright stones) and funeral chambers bear witness to Anglesey’s rich past. It was an important centre of Druid culture during the first century BC. Anglesey, invaded by Romans, Vikings, Saxons and Normans consecutively, finally fell under the sceptre of Edward I, King of England, in the 13th century. Edward began building Beaumaris Castle in 1295, but never finished it for want of funds. He left the area to conquer Scotland. Beaumaris, considered one of the most architecturally-perfect castles anywhere, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Beyond a strip of sea, the picturesque little port nearby gives on to a view of the snowcapped mountains of Snowdonia, the national park

whose godfather is the Welsh actor Anthony Hopkins. Another popular tourist stop is the train station with the impossible-to-pronounce Welsh name: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerych wyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. As everyone knows, that translates to: “St. Mary’s Church in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St Tysilio’s of the red cave.” Around 1860, the village counsel purportedly chose the moniker in order to encourage tourism via the longest station name in the UK (and Europe’s longest town name as well). Mission accomplished! Two works of art link the island to the mainland. The earlier of the two bridges is the iconic Menai suspension bridge, inaugurated in 1826. On the other side of the strait, opposite Anglesey on terra firma, the spectacular medieval Caernarfon Castle was the idyllic site of the investiture of HRH The Prince of Wales. After Charles in 1969, William is next on the list!

AS MANY retailers benefit from a Royal Wedding consumer spending spree, it is claimed the extra bank holiday will cost the wider UK economy billions of pounds. Shops are hoping the wedding will be an excuse for people to splash the cash. Brits will spend £480m for the Royal Wedding, with an average of £29 per person, according to figures by Moneysupermarket.com. That is music to retailers’ ears as they hope the wedding will drive up sales, and supermarkets are expecting today to be their busiest day of the year as people stock up for parties. It is looking particularly good for shops in the capital as the commercial benefit to London from visitors’ expenditure is expected to be £107m, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. The British Retail Consortium (BRC) also argues the extra bank holiday will add to the spending extravaganza. Richard Dodd from the BRC said: “The fact everyone is getting an extra bank holiday means that there’s an extra opportunity to shop, which people wouldn’t have otherwise.” Tourists are flocking to London and many are camping at Westminster Abbey. But the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has a more negative outlook on this weekend’s celebrations, as it says the day off for millions of workers will cost the UK economy up to £6bn in lost output. The CBI figures do not seem to take account of the celebrations. More than 5,500 street are parties planned across the country, with more than 800 in London, including one in Downing Street, according to the Local Government Association. The event will boost tourism which is of huge value to the economy; it is worth £97bn per annum and supports two million jobs, according to visitEngland. Travel agents and airlines are cashing in on the bank holiday weekend as tourists pour in to the country for the wedding. Budget airline Ryanair said it will carry 150,000 passengers

through its three London airports between Wednesday and Friday - up 10% on last year. The benefits of tourism to the capital could even continue after the wedding. British Hospitality Association spokesman Miles Quest said: “Two to three billion people will be watching this event on TV, there will be some spin-off from people saying ‘we must visit London’.” The rest of the UK will be gaining from tourism as well. Travelodge spokesman Shakila Ahmed said they had seen a surge in bookings to coastal resorts for the bank holiday weekend - not just the capital. “London has been performing really well, but we actually saw a big surge in bookings in coastal locations like Blackpool, Scarborough, Bournemouth.” Another company which has profited from the wedding is bookmaker William Hill which expects to take more than £1m on Royal Wedding bets. Wagers have already come in from 86 different countries on bets on for example how long Prince William will have to wait for Kate at the altar. The festivities come at a good time for British retailers, which could do with a boost in sales. Though the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) showed that high street sales rose 0.2% in March compared to February, the British Retail Consortium revealed a bleaker picture. The BRC reported a 1.9% fall in sales during March compared to a year ago - the biggest drop in 16 years. But Miles Quest from British Hospitality Association said the boost, although helpful, was not as needed as some might think. “London has been doing extremely well, partly because of the low value of sterling against the Euro and the dollar which has encouraged more people into the country. “Spring is always a bit of a low occupancy time compared to the summer, so if you can raise occupancy by a few percentage points that’s a huge benefit - which is what the wedding will do.”

A WORD FROM OUR EDITOR

Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

Love it or loathe it… As we go to print Royal Wedding fever is gripping the world. Crowds of well-wishers are gathering outside Westminster Abbey ahead of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. A makeshift tent village has been set up on the pavement as people prepared to camp out to secure the best spots to see the happy couple. Union flag bunting and other brightly coloured flags adorn the metal barriers that line the busy main road. Well wishers have literally travelled from the corners of the earth to say ‘I was there’. It’s definitely a worldwide spectacular event. Perhaps in terns of PR it couldn’t have come at a better time, a bit of ‘warm, fluffiness’ when everything in the UK is a bit doom and gloom. I imagine it is quite a task to keep anything a secret and close family and friends must know some details i.e. who is designing the dress/what will it look like? And, the honeymoon destination? For me, keeping a few aspects a secret from the public and the honeymoon from Kate, add an extra hint of sparkle to it. The dress is one of the biggest secrets in the country, and one with potentially huge ramifications for the British high street: who has designed Kate Middleton’s wedding dress? Rumours abound and names in the spotlight include; lesser-known designer Sophie Cranston – founder of the label Libelula, speculative spotlight has shone also upon Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, Bruce Oldfield, Phillipa Lepley and Alice Temperley. The bride-to-be’s choice is expected to have huge repercussions as high street stores prepare to satisfy a

generation of mini-Kates seeking to replicate the future queen. We’ll just have to wait with the rest of the world… Facts and Figures · 15,000 copies of Knit Your Own Royal Wedding book, which has guides on how to create 10 royal fabric figures – including the Queen’s corgis have been sold · 750,000 ‘limited edition’ commemorative Oyster cards have been produced by Transport for London. · 26,000 Tulips outside Buckingham Palace had to be cut before the wedding day as the hot weather made them peak early · 187 horses will be on parade · 5,000 individual peals of the Westminster Abbey’s bells will take place during the service · 35 sniffer dogs will be on duty · Westminster Abbey holds 3,000 people · 30,000 flowers are reported to be used throughout the Royal Wedding · A quarter of the world’s population was expected to watch television broadcast of wedding, that is a total of 2 billion people. Charles and Diana’s wedding in 1981 attracted an incomparable 750 million spectators. (Reuters) · YouTube will also be streaming the event live for the other 4.9 billion people not watching it on television. (Independent) · The term ‘Royal Wedding’ has been Googled 450,000 times per month in the past year. (Google Adwords) · What a cop-out! 5,000 police will be on duty to ensure the marriage will be a “safe, secure and happy event”. (BBC) · The wedding’s souvenir programme costs two pounds. When Queen Elizabeth got married in 1947 it cost two shillings and sixpence, or, fittingly half a crown. (Reuters) · 8,000 international journalists will cover the event. CNN alone sent 400 staff.

Stepy granted leave FAMILY MAN Stephen Johnson was accused of a murder here in Tenerife. Last week he returned to his Sunderland home for health reasons – albeit for a short period of time. Johnson, 56, from Sunderland, was accused of murdering a Moroccan on the island in January 2008 and has been on restrictive bail ever since. Last week Steppy was granted permission by the Judge at the High Court in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, to go back to his home in the North East, but only for seven

to return to the UK previously during his bail with an aim to attempt to keep his coach business going. Joan continued, “seven weeks was requested to give him the opportunity to seek medical treatment x-rays, blood tests etc. To sort out his business and financial affairs and spend time with his family. (His coach business is now almost at a stand still due to Stephen being stuck over in Tenerife)” “The arthritis in his fingers is bad and his cholesterol readings are at a dangerous level. The stress and strain of having so much time from his family and business is not helping.” Johnson’s case is one of those that seems to have

dragged on, for whatever reason, with no concrete progress being made. Joan confirmed to Canarian Weekly, “There is still no trial date, although his paper work has apparently being transferred to the high court in Santa Cruz. He had to apply to the court in Santa Cruz to get his passport back. “He has had no positive contact from any authorities in Tenerife or England. The foreign office and my local MP are aware of his situation and they are contacting the British and Spanish embassy regarding the length of time this is taking to go to trial.” Johnson’s fight continues when he arrives back in Tenerife on the 7th June.

In the meantime for the past three years he has been on bail and restricted to living on the island, ideal some would say, but not if you’re thousands of miles away from your wife, three children and grand-daughter. Stephen’s wife Joan, told Canarian Weekly, “Stephen asked for permission to come home - on 15th January 2011, 3 months ago when he returned back from his last visit.” Stephen has been permitted

12th heat was held in Playa da la Reina, Puerto Santiago, last Saturday at the Blarney Stone.

go to all the performers, and those who came along to contribute to a great night’s entertainment. The 12 qualifiers(10 females) will line up for the Grand Final on 14th May at Showtime, Las Americas, where they will compete for the 500-euro cash prize, a 12-track recording session at Villa Studios, a contract with Paul James Associates, and

the title of Tenerife Loves Karaoke 2011. The two remaining heats are at La Guagua (Fanabe Beach Front) tonight (Friday) and, lastly, at Wigan Pier (Las Americas) next Sunday (8th May).

Stadium success

No free medical treatment for all

ACCORDING to the Spanish press an estimated 300,000 people living in Spain, including the Canaries, have no entitlement to free healthcare.

Traditional May Fiesta FROM now until the 20th May the streets of the capital city are once again decorated with lights, decorations and adorned with flowers for the traditional May Fiesta. The celebration marks the day, 3rd May, on which Tenerife was founded in 1494. The vast prog r a m m e includes activities completely free for chil-

dren and adults, as well as typical of the festival events such as the Flower Cruces Contest, Dances, Magicians, the election of the Queen, amongst others.

bined, the location, the environment and weather conditions are optimum for sports. At the same time, visiting athletes contribute to the local economy whilst here in Tenerife.

This is despite the fact the Ley 14/1986 states that anyone resident in Spain has the right to free medical care. The Ministry of Health says thousands of residents are being forced to take out private health insurance policies. Those who fall into this group include those whose unemployment money come to an end, but who have an income exceeding the Spanish minimum wage of 641 euros a month.

They also include those who have never worked, except occasionally or for cash in hand. And even certain professions, who do not form part of the mainstream social security regime for the selfemployed due to their line of business, are unable to take advantage of free healthcare as they are not ‘paying into the system’. However, even those who wish to pay social security in order to have free medical treatment are unable to do so if they do not work. Your health is very important so it is of paramount importance that you clearly know your own personal circumstances in relation to health provision.

Many teams from Europe have used the facilities for training with Finnish athletes using it as a permanent base. Sport Councillor, Francisco Hernández Toledo, emphasised that the use of sports facilities, not only for local athletes but for international athletes, is recognition of the quality of the sports infrastructure within Arona.

Masca rescue A rescue helicopter had to assist in the evacuation of a walker in the Masca Ravine after she suffered a fall while hiking in the municipality of Buenavista del Norte. The incident happened last Friday

at 13.20. Emergency services attended and the woman was airlifted to the Heliport in Adeje and moved to Hospiten, where her injuries were thought not to be of a serious nature.

The municipality of Tegueste in the north is making preparations for the fiesta in honour of San Marcos Evangelista. The traditional pilgrimage takes place this Sunday with the tiny streets full of colourful carts and floats.

It’s the first time in its history that the event has taken place on 1st May. The Romeria takes place in Plaza de San Marcos on Friday, 6th May.

Arona Town council are spending just over five hundred thousand euros to repair the San Antonio ‘old’ road that connects the town of Arona to Vilaflor. The road has great cultural significance as it is the place where many festivals take place, including the pilgrimage to the cross of San Antonio. Mayor Jose Alberto Gonzalez Reveron expressed

his hope that “this initiative will help to revitalise and strengthen Arona town as a benchmark of rural tourism in the South of Tenerife, and without doubt, it will make the centre of the municipality more attractive, contributing to enriching the heritage of our town.”

EU subsidy boosting Santander crossings BRITTANY FERRIES, which uses the aptlynicknamed “Sea Motorway”, between Santander and Portsmouth, has been granted a 5.6-millioneuro subsidy by the European Comm-ission. It was given as part of the Marco Polo II programme - a road-traffic avoidance project - and a further 1.2m Euros. went to a company using the rival route, between Vigo and the

French port of Nantes-Saint Nazaire. Thirty-two of the 101 projects up for funding by the Marco Polo II programme have been given a total of 56.98m euros. The subsidy enables French firm Brittany Ferries to supply a service three times a week from Santander and Bilbao to Portsmouth. That spells good news for Tenerife-bound drivers usually the winter Swallows who bring their cars across from the UK to Santa Cruz via the ferry.

Weekend drug arrests During the Easter weekend the Guardia Civil arrested four individuals at the ‘I Love Music Festival’ where Craig David was performing - allegedly for drug related offences. Cocaine, MDMA (commonly known as ecstasy) and cannabis, were confiscated, presumably ready for distri-

Page 10

bution and sale among those attending the event. As a result four men were detained aged from 16-30. The youngest, was found in possession of cocaine in two separate envelopes, ecstasy tablets and an amount of cash. The eldest of those arrested was a resident of Granadilla, who was found in possession of 6 grams of cocaine, hashish and a large amount of cash.

Vodafone cracks phone monopoly VODAFONE SPAIN has completed the 25-million-euro installation of its fibre network to the Canary Islands, which will break Telefonica’s telephone monopoly. Vodafone’s connection to the undersea cable along the west coast of Africa, which feeds the whole of Africa and other countries, including Britain and Portugal, means it will soon be able to compete on level terms regarding telephone and broadband costs. Telefonica has been the only operator for years with its own undersea cable connection to the Island and, as many of you will know, it is not always the easiest company to deal with. Right now, whatever ADSL contract you have secured elsewhere, with Direct Telecom, Teletec or even Vodafone, say, the line rental is still payable to Telefonica.

But the new infrastructure will almost certainly pave the way for cheaper phone and internet deals, via Vodafone Spain - just as it did in the UK when BT’s monopoly ended in 2001. Where it now costs a

monthly 60-euro fee for Telefonica’s telephone and ADSL line, a similar service in the UK can cost as little as £20, with several companies all competing with each other for the best deals. Vodafone has already been

selling ADSL services in Tenerife and the other islands, via Telefonica’s undersea link, and now has in excess of 11,000 customers in the Canaries, with a mobile customer base of more than 300,000.

Deadly storms sweep across Southern US MORE THAN 40 people have been killed in Alabama as a series of tornadoes and storms destroyed homes and caused flooding. The severe weather system has lashed at least half a dozen southern US states over the past three days, killing at least 72 people. A spokeswoman for the Alabama Emergency Management Agency said: “State (emergency officials) can confirm 45 storm-related deaths in Alabama.” One tornado killed 15 people when it ripped through the city of Tuscaloosa. Meteorologist Josh Nagelberg of AccuWeather said: “This could be the worst tornado in Alabama’s history.” [We] stand ready to continue to help the people of Alabama and all citizens affected by these storms. Sheriff Scott Walls said the state’s northeast had recorded six deaths, five from one house. He said: “That house was in the direct path of the tornado. We had homes and busi-

nesses that took direct hits.” US President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency for Alabama. “While we may not know the extent of the damage for days, we will continue to monitor these severe storms across the country,” he said. “[We] stand ready to continue to help the people of Alabama and all citizens affected by these storms.” The storms also caused flooding and power cuts. Power lines were knocked out and three nuclear power plants in Alabama were forced to close. Over 1400 National Guardsman were now involved in search and rescue as well as clearing storm-damaged areas. Arkansas and Tennessee have also declared a state of emergency. In Mississippi authorities said the storms had caused at least 11 deaths in eight separate counties in the state over a 24-hour period. Two weeks ago at least 47 people died as storms tore a wide path from Oklahoma to North Carolina.

Hackers pocket the PlayStation gamers’ details

Many claiming sickness benefits are fit to work

THREE-QUARTERS of those who apply for sickness benefit are fit enough to work or drop their claim, official figures show. Over a 22-month period, 887,300 of the 1,175,700 applicants for employment and support allowance (ESA) the successor to the old incapacity benefit - failed to qualify for assistance. Of those, 39% were judged fit to work while a further 36% abandoned their claim before their medical assessment had been completed. The figures were released by the Department for Work and Pensions. Employment Minister Chris Grayling said they underlined the need to reassess people still on the old incapacity ben-

Page 12

efit - a process started last month. “Once again we have clear evidence of the need for change in our welfare system,” Mr Grayling said. “We now know very clearly that the vast majority of new claimants for sickness benefits are in fact able to return to work. “That’s why we are turning our attention to existing claimants, who were simply abandoned on benefits.” He added: “We will, of course, carry on providing unconditional support to those who cannot work, but for those who can it’s right and proper that they start back on the road to employment.” The DWP figures cover the period from October 27, 2008 - when ESA was introduced by the former Labour government - to August 31, 2010.

JAPANESE electronics giant Sony has admitted millions of PlayStation network gamers may have had their personal details stolen. A hacker broke into the PlayStation video game online network and stole names, addresses and possibly credit card data belonging to 77 million people. It is believed to be one of the biggest-ever internet security breaches of its kind. Sony learned of the breach on April 19 and immediately shut down the PlayStation network, but kept quiet about it for a week.

In a statement the company said an “illegal and unauthorised person” obtained people’s names, addresses, email address, birthdates, usernames, passwords, logins, security questions and more. The shutdown of the PlayStation network prevented owners of the video game console from buying and downloading games as well as playing with rivals over the internet. The breach is a major setback for Sony. Although video game hardware and software sales have declined globally, the PlayStation franchise has been a steady seller and is one of its key products. The company said there

was no evidence credit card numbers were stolen but warned users it could not rule out the possibility. “Out of an abundance of caution, we are advising you that your credit card number (excluding security code) and expiration date may have been obtained,” it said. Analysts said while Sony has notified its customers of the break-in, it still has not provided information on how users’ data may have been compromised. “This is a huge data breach,” said Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter. “The bigger issue with Sony is how will the hacker use the info that has been illegally obtained?”

A statement issued by Visa Europe said: “Concerned cardholders should keep a close eye on their accounts and report any unusual or unexpected activity to their issuing bank. “Cardholders who are innocent victims of fraud will get their money back, subject to the terms and conditions of their bank.” Sony, which is part of Sony Corp, said it hoped to restore some of the PlayStation network’s services within a week. The network launched in autumn 2006 and offers games, music and movies to people with PlayStation consoles. It has 77 million registered users.

Barack Obama born in the USA US President Barack Obama has posted his full birth certificate on the internet, in an effort to finally kill speculation that he was born abroad. The issue of the leader’s origins had become increasingly prominent, with recent opinion polls indicating one in four Americans believed he was born in another country. Released on the White House website, the form says Barack Hussein Obama II was born at 7.24pm on August 4 1961, at Kapiolani Hospital, within the city limits of Honolulu, Hawaii. It is signed by the delivery doctor, Obama’s mother and the local registrar. Only ‘natural born’ citizens can become president according to a vague clause in the US constitution. Members of the so-called

‘birther’ movement contended that disqualified Obama from his post. Sceptics also suggested he was born in his father’s home country of Kenya. And potential election rival, businessman Donald Trump, had repeatedly questioned whether the president was born in the US. Mr Obama’s campaign team failed to put the matter to bed in 2008 when releasing the standard ‘short form’ birth certificate issued upon request from the state of Hawaii. But the president said officials in Hawaii had been persuaded to make an exception and release the full ‘long form’ version of the documents because the debate had become a sideshow. Anyone who bought into the conspiracy theory in the first place will probably have the capacity to doubt the full version handed out by the White House as well.

Last-gasp drama as Games’ ticket deadline expires THE DEADLINE to apply for tickets for the London 2012 Olympics was extended by an hour on Tuesday night after a last-minute surge in demand. Problems struck for about 20 minutes from 10.30pm, as the clock ticked down to the 11.59pm deadline for the 6.6 million tickets. Members of the public using the site to apply for tickets, which will be allocated later by ballot, were met by a holding message. The website displayed a page telling would-be customers: “We’re experiencing high demand. “You will be automatically directed to the page requested as soon as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.” After a lengthy waiting period the holding page timed out leaving some users with a new page that read simply: “Sorry, we cannot process your request. Please try again later.” London 2012 said the deadline was extended to 1am on Wednesday as a result of the difficulties. A spokesman said: “Some

people experienced temporary delay in accessing the Olympic ticketing site following a surge of applications around 10.30pm. “This surge has now evened out and the system is working normally. Applications were still being processed during this period. “We apologise for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.” Tickets for the opening ceremony at the Olympic stadium will cost up to £2,012 Sports fans had been told the six-week ticket application was a marathon, not a sprint, and they would have the

same chance of getting a ticket on the first or the last day of the process. There are 650 sessions across 26 sports and 17 days to choose from and people are being limited to a maximum of 20 events each. Prices range from £20 to £2,012 for the best seats at the opening ceremony. The showpiece men’s 100m sprint final will cost up to £725 and the track cycling finals between £50 and £325. London 2012 chief executive Paul Deighton said since last Friday the number of applications had jumped from “a high level to a really high

level”. The last week had seen “three or four times the applications above and beyond what was coming in for the previous five weeks”. Despite being aware there would be “incredible” interest in the final days before the applications closed, he was confident the system would cope and avoid a meltdown. Applicants will find out whether or not they have secured tickets by June 24. London 2012 needs to raise £500m from the sale of tickets as it tries to secure £2bn from the private sector to stage the Games.

Ray Winstone gambles on Sweeney role Air Traffic Controller is stabbed to death AN air traffic controller has been found stabbed to death in a secure area of a French airport, reports say. He was apparently discovered in a pool of blood between a lift and a staircase near the top of the control tower at EuroAirport. The married father-of-one, who has not been named, was stabbed in the throat, lung and chest, it is believed. At least two of the wounds were thought to have been fatal. The area where he was found could only be accessed with an ID badge or accreditation. Prosecutors have begun a

Page 14

murder investigation to find out how the attack on the senior controller happened. The 34-year-old victim is believed to have worked at the airport, near the eastern city of Mulhouse, on the border with Germany and Switzerland, since 1988. Investigators do not think the attack is related to terrorism and are believed to be investigating motives related to his personal life or job. Police have not made any arrests yet and are still looking for the murder weapon, reported newspaper L’Est Republicain. Flights in and out of the airport have not been affected.

EAST LONDON actor Ray Winstone fears that he could be setting himself up for a fall with the new film version of the 70s television classic The Sweeney. The Sexy Beast star is set to play Jack Regan, the role played by the late John Thaw, in the film adaptation which begins shooting this autumn. He said, “You think, ‘why would you want to remake something that’s so iconic?’ and I thought about this for a while. “Then I read the script and it really surprised me how good it was.” The recent remake of Arthur, which stars Russell Brand, has been panned by

the critics and raised questions about whether the film industry should be doing remakes at all. “I haven’t seen Arthur yet, but we’re going to put ourselves on the line with The Sweeney. “We’ve got to do the job properly you know. And that’s

alright, I’ve had a fight before and this is another one,” said Winstone. The original cop-series about London’s Flying Squad ran between 1975 and 1978 and was hugely popular. He’ll be joined on set by British rapper Plan B who’s been cast as George Carter,

the character originally played by Dennis Waterman. “We’ve got Plan B. We haven’t got two skinny boys running about with their hair all nice. “You look at him - Plan B - he looks like he can come through a front door. He’s a very intelligent kid and you know what, he can act!”

Someone’s Dettori and Cook head got to do it! line-up for these superb IT’S not the most pleasant of subjects, but just imagine the amount of dog faeces produced daily by 200 dogs - and what on earth happens to it? Jose, who works at animal refuge Accion Del Sol, dons his mask and rubber gloves three times a week, loads up the works van with bags of the stuff, then drives it up the motorway to PIRS, Tenerife Cabildo’s waste disposal plant. The van is weighed by an inspector, then driven up the winding tracks to the official dumping area, where he unloads the wagon, watched by one or two workers. Then it’s back on the weighbridge for an empty-van weigh-in. It costs 12-15 euros per vanload, and Accion del Sol volunteer Karen Clack once accompanied Marion Gonzales, who runs the place, on the “poo” run. “I never want to do that again,” said Karen. “The smell was overpowering, but it’s a very important task for the hygiene of the dogs and the refuge.” On a more fragrant note, the sixth of a family of seven who were brought into the refuge two months ago, all with their eyes still closed. But as you can see, he’s as frisky as anything now, as new owners Adriana Montes and son Raul discovered when they picked him on Monday to take him home. One little tot not so lucky yet is David, a shy animal about a year old, who has also been at the Aktiontier-sponsored refuge for a couple of months. He needs a home with owners who have lots of time and

Page 18

patience for him because he has been badly treated, which is why he is so timid. Please contact Accion del Sol on 922 778 630 if you feel you can give him, or one of the other many dogs at the refuge, a new home. Finally, Marion attended an important meeting on Tuesday with Arona Town Hall officials, the Arona police chief and the municipality’s newly-appointed dog-catcher in relation to past issues and loopholes in the system. They discussed ways of improving the stray-dog collecting service in the area and the result, hopefully, will ensure a more efficient, speedier response. The dogs will be taken to the Granadilla-based refuge promptly, and given a thorough, professional check-up. The number to call to report a stray dog is 922 761 600. If you do find a dog on the streets of Arona and you live in the municipality, then please call 010. If, however, you come across a stray on the streets but you live outside Arona, please call 922 761 600. Please remember that we do live in a Spanish-speaking country, so it is expected that the caller speaks Spanish. The refuge, which has its own vets and surgery on the premises, is open MondayFriday from 3-6pm, and it is situated at exit 51 on the TF1, next to the ITER windmill park. On a different note, 23 extremely hardy fund-raisers will be hiking up Mount Teide on 21st May for the Teide Challenge 2011. If you would like to sponsor one of the walkers, please contact Karen on 687 905 511, or Marion on 922 778 630.

YOUR NEW-LOOK TELEVISION GUIDE! 13 CHANNELS INCLUDING BBC, ITV, CHANNEL 4, CHANNEL FIVE SKY & SPORTS CHANNELS

The Royal Wedding Friday 29 April, 8:00am - 1:40pm, BBC1 - 8:30am - 4:05pm, ITV1 Bunting is hanging from your bookshelves, you have donned your Union Jack deely boppers, a paper plate of sandwiches is balanced on your knees and a sack of crisps is within reach. You don't have to work because it's a proper holiday and you're all set to do nothing but watch telly for hours and hours. Yes, it's going to be a great, great day. Come on, this is terrific, we're allowed to have fun and nothing but fun all day, it's a requirement, as Prince William marries Catherine Middleton. This is History, this is the greatest television event any of us is likely to see, with an expected global audience of two billion. But William and Kate are ours, and I think it's nice we're sharing them with the world in a spectacle full of colour and happiness. So leave your world-weary cynicism in a cupboard and join the 1,900-strong congregation at Westminster Abbey as BBC1, ITV1 and Sky News provide blanket coverage. The actual ceremony is only part of the day's work for the news teams, who will be outside Buckingham Palace from 6am (Sky), 8am (BBC1) and 8:30am (ITV1), while presumably everyone inside is having breakfast or getting their hair done. Sophie Raworth is on duty on BBC1 at 8:30am as the doors of Westminster Abbey open, where she will be on the look-out for early arrivals. This is really just an excuse to do some star-spotting; is that Prince Albert of Monaco? Elton John? The Beckhams? The ceremony begins at 11am, after Catherine Middleton and her dad have made the short car journey to the Abbey from a nearby swish hotel. Huw Edwards will commentate for BBC1, with James Mates being similarly reverential on ITV1. The formalities end at midday, when in proper fairy-tale prince and princess style the newlyweds will leave the Abbey in a carriage for the Palace. At 1:30pm expect the wave and the kiss on the balcony as the Battle of Britain Memorial flight roars overhead. It will make you proud to be British.

River Song (Alex Kingston), Rory (Arthur Darvill), The Doctor (Matt Smith) and Amy (Karen Gillan) share their discoveries. The Doctor is locked in the perfect prison while Amy, Rory and River Song are being hunted down across America by the FBI, as the time-travelling adventure series continues. With the help of new friend

and FBI-insider Canton Everett Delaware the Third, our heroes are reunited to share their discoveries, if not their memories. The world is occupied by an alien force that controls humanity through post-hypnotic suggestion, and no one can be trusted. Aided by President Nixon and Neil Armstrong’s foot, the Doctor must mount a

revolution to drive out the enemy and rescue the missing little girl. No one knows why they took her. Or why they have kidnapped Amy Pond... The Doctor is played by Matt Smith, Amy by Karen Gillan, Rory by Arthur Darvill, River Song by Alex Kingston and Canton Everett Delaware the Third by Mark Sheppard.

Casualty – Momentum

Polly has been stabbed by the unstable Hannah and is bleeding in the basement. Hannah finds Dylan to explain but he won’t listen. And he’s hidden his dog, Dervla, in the basement, so is reluctant to let anyone go down there. Dylan becomes concerned when Polly fails to return his calls and, when her phone is

found in Hannah’s cubicle, Dylan confronts Hannah, who pulls a bloody knife on him. Alarmed, he orders Jay to go down to the basement ... Polly’s been hurt. Will the medics find Polly before her life ebbs away? And how will the day’s tumultuous events impact upon Jordan’s career prospects?

9.20pm, BBC1 Polly’s life hangs in the balance in this special real-time episode of Casualty. Wounded and hidden in the basement, will the gang get to her before she bleeds to death?

Two Greedy Italians – The Family

7:00pm ..................The One Show

8.00pm, BBC2

7:30pm ..........................BBC News; Regional News

Godfathers of Italian cooking Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo return to their homeland to see just how Italian culture and cuisine has changed since they left. Gennaro first worked as Antonio’s assistant 28 years ago but, following a period of almost 10 years when they didn’t talk to each other, they are once again best friends – with Antonio affectionately describing Gennaro as “a silly boy but a brilliant cook”. In programme one, The Family, they are on a mission to discover if food and fam-

ily are still inextricably linked. The duo visit Emilia Romagna – the region of Parmigiano and Parma ham – and have a typical Sunday lunch with friends near Modena, the home of Balsamic vinegar. In this traditional family, la mammas do all the cooking and they show the two chefs their recipe for fresh tortellini pasta. Their next stop is in Bologna to sample the cheeses and hams and to find out if the role of women remains the same. They meet a group of career women who don’t cook at home and they also

discover that cooking schools for tourists are being inundated with Italians. In the countryside near Rimini they visit a different kind of family home – a refuge helping those with serious drug problems. As part of their rehabilitation, the residents produce food which is sold around the world. In programme one, Antonio and Gennaro cook Mamma Contaldo’s ricotta dumplings, warm chocolate and amaretto pudding and cooked family stew with polenta.

Chaudry and Daniel Chalk want to make a good impression, but the kids aren’t going to give them an easy ride. “Chalky” is instantly marked out as a soft target, while Ms Chaudry’s strict rules land Sambuca Kelly in the “cooler”. What Eleanor sees as unruly behaviour in Sambuca is just a personality clash according to Tom, but her erratic behaviour gives cause for concern. Meanwhile, new boy Aiden Scotcher has caught the

eye of Jess – but it’s her friend Vicki who’s got his attention. Karen Fisher is played by Amanda Burton, Rob Scotcher by Robson Green, Eleanor Chaudry by Poppy Jhakra, Daniel Chalk by Mark Benton, Sambuca Kelly by Holly Kenny, Tom Clarkson by Jason Done, Aiden Scotcher by Oliver Lee, Jess Fisher by Linzey Cocker, Vicki MacDonald by Rebecca Ryan and Ali Redback by Kirsty Armstrong.

Page 34

received a Royal pardon – but just four hours into their freedom Harvey is murdered. The Shadow Line begins... DI Gabriel has just returned to work after being shot on an undercover job; his partner was killed and Gabriel suffered amnesia with a bullet lodged in his head. Gabriel starts to investigate the Wratten case with his partner DS Honey. Joseph Bede, one of Wratten’s men, is keen to find out who killed Wratten, and also wants to

track down Glickman, their money man. With Wratten dead and Glickman missing, Bede is left holding the fort. Meanwhile, Jay Wratten is a loose cannon... Bede sends his foot soldiers on a mission to find Glickman, and also the missing driver who collected Wratten from prison, Andy Dixon. Jay Wratten is played by Rafe Spall, DI Gabriel by Chiwetel Ejiofor, DS Honey by Kierston Wareing and Joseph Bede by Christopher Eccleston.

Dedicated followers A blooming Windsor of furniture fashion! treat for a rose and her handsome prince

FASHION doesn’t just refer to clothes, but also to the way people live, the cars they drive and, of course, furniture. Basically, fashion just means what is popular at a given time, or as the dictionary says: “The prevailing style or custom.” Those of us over a certain age will almost certainly look back on some of the things we wore (particularly in the 70s and 80s), and wonder - WHY? For those of you too young to remember, we thought we looked great at the time! Fortunately, clothing is relatively easy to change, and has a limited shelf life. Also, even if you do make a mistake with clothes, you don’t wear the same thing every day. Equally if you’ve ever had a fashionable but bad haircut, you know that it will grow out. Slowly, admittedly, but it will grow! These fashion mistakes will pass. When it comes to furniture though, you need to be careful if you are a follower of fashion. This is partly because whatever decisions you make now are likely to be with you for some time. Also, though, there’s the expense involved if you decide you really can’t live with it (although as the owner of a furniture shop, I would obviously be delighted!). Fashions have definitely changed in the furniture world. I remember furnishing apart-

ments when I first came to the island, and everyone wanting matching bedspreads and curtains, and false-flower arrangements. This look can still work well if it is done carefully, but the fashion for furniture recently has been for quite minimalistic furnishings: clean, straight lines with little or no detail, and shiny, plain surfaces. To make this style work, though, you need to commit to no clutter, and that certainly wouldn’t work in my house! In recent years, many people have updated old-fashioned apartments and moved to more modern styles that will stand the test of time. They have chosen squarer furniture and less pattern, but without taking it to the extreme of minimalism. This middle ground can be dressed up or down and can, therefore, be adapted to the fashion of the day and, of course, to your own personal tastes. As far as colour is concerned, fashions also influence these choices. Colours such as duckegg blue, limes and purples may be in fashion for short periods of time only.

If you do want to include them in your home design, you need firstly to be really sure that you love them! Secondly, it might be wiser to use them in the smaller items such as cushions, ornaments, pictures, etc, which can be changed again in time if you tire of such strong colours. However, if you have your sofa upholstered in lime green, you need to be really sure that you can live with it, as it would be an expensive mistake to correct. Having said that, many of my clients have been bold with their choices, using a red sofa with a flash of the colour repeated in a picture and a lamp, and it works in a stunning way. It would be an overload of colour if they started to add too many other items because, as they say, less is more! At the end of the day, it comes down to common sense. Apply the fashion of the day if you wish, but temper it with your own personal choices and way of life to make sure it works for you. All items mentioned are available at Deco Nuevo, next to Ofipapel in Los Cristianos.

THE Royal Landscape is a thousand acres of gardens, lakes and woodland, incorporating The Savill Garden, The Valley Gardens and Virginia Water Lake. It is, without doubt, a place of great beauty, and The Savill Garden, contained within Windsor Park, is recognised as one of Britain’s greatest ornamental gardens. Yet it is neither a botanical garden, nor a kitchen garden attached to a great house, but simply a garden for the garden’s sake, enjoyed by horticulturalists and enthusiasts alike. And what a garden! It never fails to charm visitors who come to explore its 35 acres of contemporary and classically-designed gardens and exotic woodland. The Savill Garden, developed

Page 38

under the patronage of kings and queens, was created in the 1930s by Sir Eric Savill. It began as a woodland garden, with native oak, beech and sweet chestnut trees, but has since evolved by incorporating many new plants over the years. And there, in its striking new rose garden, is where Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, has had one rose planted for Prince William and another for Kate as her wedding present to them. The Royal William Rose is a hybrid, red tea rose. It is also known as Duftzauber (Fragrant Charm in English, or Scented Magic). According to The Ultimate Rose Book, the rose was introduced in 1983, when Britain celebrated the birth of Prince William of Wales, the first son of the then Prince and Princess of Wales. The Catherine and Royal William roses were planted in

neighbouring flower beds and Mark Flanagan, keeper of The Savill Garden, revealed that the Catherine rose was peachy pink and sweet-scented. Mr Flanagan said the roses had been planted in separate beds to avoid a “kaleidoscope effect” and added: “In design terms, we feel it’s better to present one rose per bed because it’s just a stronger way to actually display the roses.” Sadly, they will not have flowered in time for today’s royal wedding, but will blossom from mid-June to September. The Savill Garden, which really is a sight to behold, is a mile from Englefield Green, in Surrey, and four miles from Windsor Castle. It can be reached via the A30 from the south and west, and by the A308 from the east and north. It is also close to the M25 (J13), M3 and M4.

CARL PATTISON from Robot, answers your hair questions

Such a blistering time even a donkey joined in

WANT to treat yourself to a salon service but don’t know which to go for? The best advice I can give, which won’t break the bank, is a conditioning treatment and finish. This will leave your hair feeling super-nourished and you on top of the world! Forget trying to find a shampoo and conditioner just for you among the maze of products in the supermarket. Just do as I always say and ask your stylist. He or she will prescribe the correct treatments for your hair, and not only which ones they recommend but how to use them and how frequently. Yes, getting a cheap one from your local shop will save a few cents, but not if it’s unsuitable or bad for your hair. Indulge a little and you will soon reap the benefits.

SWAPPING high heels for trainers, late nights for early mornings - my training for the Virgin London Marathon would now be put to the test.

Already hooked on Britain’s got Talent? Check out Amanda Holden’s hair. From a simple bob cut, they create a multitude of styles, from simple to creative. It just goes to show that glamour is definitely back, and a quick brush of your hair these days just will not do. Come on girls; put some effort in next time you go out.

Hair prediction for this summer If you aren’t going for sharp and edgy at the moment, then maybe curls are more your thing. Out go the hair irons that create flat and boring, and in comes Blow Dry! Blow-drying, brought back from the 80s and 90s, is the new straightening. So many of us have forgotten how to create hundreds of styling ideas. You’ll need brushes and a decent hairdryer, sectioning clips and a good blow-drying cream or mousse. We’ve all forgotten how to do it (even some stylists) but check out the red carpet, find me a woman with ironed hair and I’ll stand on my head. We’re talking movement, waves, volume and, most of all, gloss because it has to look alive and not ironed to within an inch of its life. Yes, use the irons to curl by all means, but leave the flat hair to your 14-year-old daughter. If you can’t iron or curl your hair with tongs, then use big, heated rollers or even dry ones - anything to give you fullness.

After picking up a knee injury five weeks beforehand, I was not a happy bunny. My physio allowed me to run, but told me to go easy and expect the knee to “go” at any time. Therefore, off I went to London with nervous anticipation. I woke on race-day refreshed and ready to go. I caught the tube and felt comforted to see other runners alongside me. Conversation and banter started at 7am and didn’t stop the whole day. On our arrival at Greenwich I dropped my bag off at a huge lorry, drank plenty of liquids and got into my pen, ready for the off. I managed to get through the actual starting arch 10 minutes after the gun. I was finally here and I was running the VLM alongside 37,000 other runners. We were of all shapes and sizes, all ages, lots of tutu skirts, six rhinos, a huge McMillan doll, superheroes of all kinds, a donkey (I did have to look twice), a bus, juggler and a dancer, to name a few. The streets were paved with supporters who later became our gold. Kids held their hands out to high-five

us, while mums held out oranges and jelly babies. There were brass bands, DJs with mics calling out our names, even a house dressed as a haunted castle, and everyone dressed up. It was amazing. The sun was out and that is why a lot of people started to suffer. My knee decided to “go” at mile eight, but I knew I had to keep going. I paced myself a little slower behind a guy. Two miles further down the road, I realised it was Callum Best! Leading up to Tower Bridge, the crowds thickened and the noise was unbelievable. This was almost halfway. I had been running for two hours and, the knee apart, I felt good. Hand on heart, though, it was the supporters who made it worthwhile. For a tourist running here, it would have been awesome. Crikey, it was for me! Canary Wharf was a little quieter so I was able to pull up, change socks and take on some jelly beans and dried apricots. It was at this point that my knee really started to hurt and I found myself questioning my sanity for doing this. They say 60% of a marathon is mind, and it’s true. So, through sheer grit, I pushed ahead and ignored aching muscles. Wearing a T-shirt bearing your name was a godsend because people shouted out to you all the way, but no one could have out-shouted my family!

Seeing them really boosted my moral and I ran a little faster, ignoring the injury. It was at the 20-mile mark when I saw that the St John Ambulance Brigade workers were being pushed to their limits. People dehydrating, hitting the wall, fatigue - it made you take stock of how you were doing, and encouraged you to take on more fluid and food. I had 6.2 miles left and boy, did I know it. Self-motivation was the way forward, but with heavy legs, blisters and muscles I never knew I had, it was hard. Suddenly, with the great support, Big Ben came in sight and I got quite emotional. Turning the corner, all I wanted to see was Buckingham Palace, but that was still 800 metres away. The crowd were amazing at this point and if it weren’t for them, I think I would have crawled! Just 600m remaining, and I passed a man in a pink tutu and pink handbag. Then it was just 400m, and I overtook a bride and bridegroom - and there was the Palace. As I turned the corner, the finish was just ahead, and 200m later I was home and dry. It took me five long hours, one hour more than I intended, but it felt darn good to say the least. Without wanting to sound too much like an idealist, theorist or general fruitcake, that Sunday made me realise how amazing we can be - as human beings - when we want to be. And how the so-called dour, reserved Brits can pull together, rally round and support each other when nothing is owed. All in all, it made me feel very proud to be British, to have run on behalf of Help the Hospices (who were also amazing) and to have run my first marathon in London. I would like to thank everyone who supported me by sponsoring, cheering, talking to me and just making it such a fantastic experience. Thank you! PS: Yes, my name is down to do the London in 2012!

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

Cancer and heart diseases are now global epidemics CHRONIC illnesses like cancer, heart disease and diabetes have reached global epidemic proportions and now cause more deaths than all other diseases combined. In its first worldwide report on so-called non-communica-

Goggle-eyed kids of six are wide open to artery damage TOO much TV and not enough exercise is causing early artery damage in children as young as six. Youngsters who spent the most time watching television had narrowed blood vessels in their eyes, according to scientists. The effect is a known warning sign of an increased risk of heart disease. Researchers measured tiny differences in the size of micro-arteries at the back of the eye. Sedentary children aged 6-7 had an average “retinal arteriolar” narrowing of 2.3 microns. A micron is one thousandth of a millimetre. Those of the 1, 492 primaryschool children who took part in regular outdoor physical activity had retinal blood vessels which were 2.2 microns wider than those who did the least exercise. The narrowing associated with each extra hour of TV or computer viewing was similar to that accompanying a bloodpressure increase in children of 10 millimetres of mercury (mmHG). Lead researcher Dr Bamini Gopinath, from Australia’s Centre for Vision Research at the University of Sydney, said: “We found that children with a high level of physical activity had a more beneficial microvascular profile, compared with those with the lowest levels of physical activity. “This suggests that unhealthy, lifestyle factors may influence micro-circulation early in life and increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension (high blood pressure) later in life.”

ble diseases (NCDs), the United Nations health body, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said the conditions caused more than half of all deaths in 2008. Officials also say they pose a greater threat than infectious diseases such as malaria, HIV and tuberculosis (TB) - even in many poorer countries. “The rise of chronic noncommunicable diseases presents an enormous challenge,” said WHO DirectorGeneral Dr Margaret Chan, who launched the report. “For some countries, it is no exaggeration to describe the situation as an impending disaster; a disaster for health, for society, and most

of all for national economies.” The NCDs, which include heart disease, lung diseases, cancer and diabetes, accounted for 36 million, of the 57 million deaths worldwide in 2008. Yet millions of lives could be saved, and much suffering avoided, if people did more to avoid risk factors like smoking, drinking and being overweight, according to the WHO. It found that almost six million people die from tobacco use every year, directly from smoking and, indirectly, from second-hand smoke. By 2020, this will increase to 7.5 million world-

wide, or 10% of all deaths by disease. On top of this, 3.2 million people die each year through lack of physical activity, at least 2.8 million from being overweight or obese, and 2.5 million by drinking harmful levels of alcohol. “The NCD epidemic exacts an enormous toll in terms of human suffering, and inflicts serious damage to human development in both the social and economic realms,” the WHO report recorded. “This state of affairs cannot continue. Unless serious action is taken, the burden of NCDs will reach unmanageable levels.”

Doctors holding the key to survival from a silent killer FAMILY doctors are being urged to carry out blood tests on women suspected of having ovarian cancer to help improve survival rates for a disease dubbed the “silent killer”. Ovarian cancer is the fifthmost-common cancer in women, with around 6,800 women diagnosed with the disease every year in the UK. But of these women, nearly two-thirds will not live beyond five years of their diagnosis. As part of new guidelines issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice), a blood test costing around £20 is being recommended

29 April 2011 - 05 May 2011

for GPs to detect whether the disease is likely to be present. The test was already available on the NHS, but offering it sooner and in primary care could give women a greater chance of survival by speeding up diagnosis and treatment. Sean Duffy, a consultant gynaecologist at St James’s University Hospital, Leeds, and chairman of the Nice group which drew up the guidelines, urged a greater awareness of the key symptoms of ovarian cancer. He said these included persistent abdominal bloating, feeling full despite having only a small amount to eat, pelvic or abdominal pain and needing to urinate urgently or more frequently. Nice is recommending that

GPs offer women, particularly over-50s, the blood test designed to measure the level of a protein called CA125 in the blood if they experience these symptoms on a regular basis. “If they are persistent, don’t wait, act,” he urged women. “We are promoting the blood test to get women on the right cancer pathway as soon as possible. The symptoms as described can be vague but, if persistent, they should not be ignored.” The blood test is currently used by hospital specialists for women with suspected ovarian cancer. Charles Redman, a consultant gynaecological oncologist and developer of the guidelines, said earlier diagnosis would result in more speedy treatment for women and, hopefully, save lives. Care Services Minister Paul Burstow welcomed the Nice guidance, saying: “The coalition Government has been clear that we want to improve cancer survival rates so that they are among the best in Europe. “We are committing over £450 million of funding to achieve early diagnosis over the next four years. The money will give GPs increased access to key diagnostic tests.”

Royal wedding cake to have a ‘modern twist’ THE Wedding cake for Prince William and Kate Middleton was made by Leicestershire baker Fiona Cairns. And it seems the bride-tobe took a hands-on approach in designing the multi-tiered fruit cake. “We’ve been guided by Kate from the beginning”, explained graphic designer turned baker Fiona Cairns. “Kate provided mood boards and a suggested list of flowers to help decorate the cake. “It’s lovely that as a bride she has a strong idea about what she’d like. It will be traditional, with a modern twist.” The Prince and his fiancee chose Fiona Cairns because they have long been fans of her fruit cake.

It’s big enough to feed the 600 guests at the Buckingham Palace reception to be hosted by the Queen. The royal couple has asked that the four national flowers of the British Isles - rose, thistle, shamrock and daffodil feature in the icing design. Mrs Cairns, who started her

Page 42

business from her kitchen 25 years ago, received the royal call-up in February. “I couldn’t believe it, I was overjoyed”, she recalled. “I was working alongside other people the day I was called and afterwards I had to pretending nothing had happened which was a little tricky.” The cake company bakes 27,000 cupcakes a week as well as providing individual cakes for established retail outlets like Harrods and Selfridges. Every year Fiona Cairns also makes a Christmas cake for Sir Paul McCartney.

Kate Middleton has requested certain flowers be made from icing to express certain messages. Among her choices is the Bridal Rose meaning ‘happiness’, an acorn, symbolising strength and endurance and Lilly of the Valley, signifying sweetness and humility. In addition, the couple have also asked McVitie’s Cake Company to create a chocolate biscuit cake for the reception at Buckingham Palace. The chocolate biscuit cake will be made from a Royal Family recipe and was specially requested by Prince William.

Simply excellent Embrujo! IF you eat in a Best Restaurants Tenerife eatery, then you know you are in for a treat. Their impressive stable includes Italian, American, Mexican and Argentine restaurants, plus their brilliant steak house and Mamma Mia, which serves pizza and pasta as well as the always-amazing Oriental Garden. But something was missing. The final piece in the jigsaw. A Spanish restaurant! Thus, the creation of Embrujo and La Lola. These two brand-new restaurants sit next door to Oriental Garden in the impressive Americas Plaza, opposite Mare Nostrum. La Lola is a gorgeous tapas eatery and we will have a review on that in a future issue. But on the night I went to Americas Plaza with my dining partner, it was all about Embrujo. First impressions last. It’s an old cliché, but as true as Spandau Ballet. When Embrujo and La Lola were designed, the owners decided to incorporate a bar as well. This sits at the entrance alongside Oriental Garden and is a mirror of the bar on the other side of the

plaza by Mamma Mia and La Martina. It’s very well lit, clean and with knowledgeable bar staff. We took in some pre-meal drinks as we perused the menu and enjoyed the traditional Spanish music. Embrujo is deceptively large. It’s very spacious and immediately, two things catch your eye. Firstly, there is a massive bull’s head mounted on the wall! It’s a traditional focal point for quality restaurants on the mainland. The Bull has been specially imported and the history of the beast is on a plaque. I will not spoil the surprise, but this was no ordinary creature. I lost count of the number of diners who had their picture

29 April 2011 - 05 May 2011

taken next to it during the course of the evening. The second eye-catcher is the wine cellar, in the middle of the restaurant! If you are a wine buff, it’s a little piece of heaven. There are a few places in Tenerife that have the glass cellar which is climatically controlled. But I have not seen one that is such an attraction. It enables you to have a look at the wines on offer, rather than simply selecting from the menu. As with all the restaurants with this ownership, the waiters are well-briefed on the offers and will make a suitable choice to complement the meal. The menu is excellent. There is a real depth to the choices

available and it reflects both traditional Spanish and Canarian fayre. We decided to go for a selection of starters. The local goats’ cheese with the mojo sauce was great, along with pimientos de padron. You cannot go wrong with the salted peppers, and the generous portions were perfect. Sometimes, they can be underdone and have that slightly tart taste, or they are over-salted and you lose the flavour of the pepper. These ones were spot-on. To finish, we shared a portion of mussels. They came in a large bowl with a delicious, lightly-salted, white wine sauce. The mussels were fresh and

not chewy, always a true test, and the sauce was amazing. I’m not one to order bread with my meal, but that went out of the window. I could have easily enjoyed the sauce as a stand-alone dish on it’s own. It was that good. For the main course, we decided to share a fish dish and a meat option. On recommendation, we had the paella and the shoulder of lamb. I had sampled the paella in Embrujo before, when they had a Massive Paella on their opening night. It was tremendous then, and just as good this time. The key is the variety. I stopped counting at eight different types of seafood. The baby crayfish was a wonderful surprise, as was

the amount of shellfish. I know paella is not for everyone, but if you like it, you will LOVE this one. It’s very much a house signature dish. But the lamb was no supporting act. As you can see from the picture, it was massive. Well-cooked, tender and pink without being underdone, the meat fell from the bone. It would be a challenge for one person to finish on his/her own, and we struggled with the two of us. Somehow, we managed to get to dessert, and the fruit salad was fresh and wonderfully presented, and the chocolate cake was literally given the thumbs-up! I must give a hat tip to the Barraquitos. They are done in a unique way, and again, I will not spoil the surprise, but they are excellent. The staff were smartlydressed and friendly and as you would expect from a new restaurant the wash rooms were immaculate. If you want to have traditional Spanish evening, in fine surroundings, then Embrujo is certainly the place for you. They have entertainment every night - and the flamenco show is worth the visit alone. See advert on page 27.

Far from the madding crowd, the perfect honeymoon place BESIDE Lake Rutundu, on the slopes of Mount Kenya, and looking out across the African plains, stand two log cabins built from solid cedar tree trunks. For William, this was the perfect location to ask Kate if she would become his wife and she agreed immediately. Arriving by helicopter in October 2010, the couple took a day out from a holiday with friends at Lewa Downs reserve. Kate had no idea that in her boyfriend’s backpack was one of the world’s most iconic pieces of jewellery. It belonged to Princess Diana, the mother he’d adored and lost so tragically. The ring had been created three decades earlier by royal jeweller Garrard. Of course, the original marriage it had heralded fell apart. But to William, the ring - 14 perfect diamonds around a huge 18carat sapphire - symbolised love and devotion. It is, naturally, a place held dearly in the hearts of William and Kate, and it would be no surprise if they have chosen this as their honeymoon destination. Kenya, an East African country, lies along the Indian Ocean to its south-east and is bordered by Somalia to the north-east, Ethiopia to the north, Sudan to the northwest, Uganda to the west and Tanzania to the south. Lake Victoria, in the southwest, is shared with Uganda and Tanzania. With its capital city in Nairobi, Kenya has numerous wildlife reserves containing thousands of animal species, which are a magnet for tourists. The country, represented by many different peoples and cultures, is named after Mount Kenya, a significant landmark and second among Africa’s highest mountain peaks. Kenya comprises 47 counties, each with its own government, and the overall geography is as diverse as its people. It has a long coastline along the Indian Ocean and, as you advance inland, the landscape changes to savannah grasslands, arid and semi-arid bushes. The central regions and the western parts have forests and mountains, while the northern regions are near

Page 44

desert landscapes. Archaeological research indicates modern man first appeared in Kenya and, as a result, the country with its East African neighbours is almost certainly considered the cradle of mankind. Kenya, considered a major African nation, is a huge com-

mercial hub, traditionally producing world-renowned tea and coffee. It has recently developed a formidable horticultural industry, thereby becoming a major exporter of fresh flowers to Europe. The service industry is driven by the telecommunications sector,

which is one of the most successful and innovative in Africa. Mount Kenya is regarded as the realm of Ngai, god of the local Kikuyu people. Traditionally, all Kikuyu homes were built to face this sacred peak. They call it Kirinyaga, or place of light.

The mountain is an aweinspiring sight. Its ragged series of peaks are crowned with snow, and its slopes are thick with forest. The mountain is best seen at dawn, when the early light silhouettes its impressive summit, high over the surrounding plains.

While the 5,199-metre summit is a difficult, technical climb, the lesser peak of Point Lenana (4,985m) can be reached easily by any fit trekker. This takes between 3-5 days, through a fascinating world of forests, wildlife, unique vegetation and, finally, one of the world’s rarest sights: equatorial snow! For those who don’t want to climb the mountain, the cool highlands surrounding its base are well worth a visit. The forests are ideal for game viewing, and there are crystal-clear mountain streams which abound with trout. Main road access to Mt Kenya is via Nanyuki or Naro Moru, both easily accessed from Nairobi by bus/matatu or private transport. Some trekkers and climbers access the mountain from the small village of Chogoria. There is an airstrip in Nanyuki, with both scheduled and charter flights available. Many trekking companies can organise transfers from Nairobi to Mt Kenya, and the hotels in Nanyuki and Naro Moru can lay on transport to the gates of Mt Kenya National Park. All in all, there’s enough to keep Wills and Kate occupied throughout their honeymoon until they return to the real, or rather, unreal, world that awaits them.

Free Royal wedding day travel ACCORDING to the BBC, people who share their name with Prince William and Kate Middleton will be able to travel for free on Merseyrail trains today. A fun way of celebrating the big day, those people who possess the Christian name William, Will, Kate, Katie, Catherine, Kathryn (or a variation) will be permitted to have free travel on the local Merseyrail service. The company said the offer only applied to day tickets and travellers would have to have proof of ID. The firm runs trains in and around Liverpool city centre,

to Wirral, Chester, Ellesmere Port, Southport, Ormskirk and Kirkby. The company will run a Saturday service on Friday.

Rudi Boersma, from Merseyrail, said: “I guess it is our way of sharing celebrations with the people of

Merseyside. “If you are called Kate or William, turn up at a station today, show some ID and get a free ticket

before you get on the train and travel all day long anywhere you like on the network for free.”

Will Peugeot’s power sway the electric set? THE long-awaited, 100%-electric, nextgeneration car is now a reality, and Peugeot say their iOn is agile, safe, comfortable and user-friendly. That may be so, but not all the critics are impressed, and perhaps it is obvious why because this new Ion appears to be a re-badged Mitsubishi iMiEV. That is an all-electric version of the rear-engined Mitsubishi i supermini - which comes over as a lengthened, four-seater Smart - and Citroën will also have a version called C-Zero. Why Mitsubishi? It’s a quick and convenient way into the electric-car market, and the relationship already existed because the Peugeot 4007 and

the Citroë*C-Crosser are lightly-remodelled styles of the Mitsubishi Outlander. Yet Peugeot do have history in electrical motivation because they once made electric versions of the 205 and, more numerously, the 106. You can buy a Mitsubishi iMiEV, but it will cost you an eye-watering £28,990. Peugeot won’t give a retail price for the ion and instead offer a leasing deal of £415 a

month, including the UK Government’s electric-car subsidy, the scheme and the car being aimed primarily at business or public-sector fleets. The deal runs for four years, to include maintenance, a warranty and the battery pack, so a major potential worry is removed. It’s another variation on how to pay for an electric car. You buy a Leaf and its battery pack outright; buy a

Renault Fluence saloon and you lease the battery pack in a separate deal. So, the iOn deal sounds attractive at first, but £19,920 (plus VAT) seems a lot for a small car which you hand back after four years. Or you can keep it for another four years, with the same benefits, but pay about £100 less a month. But it means that over eight years, then, your iOn has cost you £42,048 (including VAT), and rather less maintenance than a normal car. On the plus side, the energy costs are hugely lower. Peugeot estimate an average of £2.50 for every 120 miles, compared with perhaps £20 for a supermini. And the iOn is said to be great fun to drive, with a solid feel about it. Also, it features regenerative braking, slowing down determinedly when the

accelerator is released. This is the one functional difference between an iOn and an i-MiEV, and it’s why Peugeot claim their version can travel up to 30% further on a charge. The cabin is airy and functional and, as with all electric cars, the getaway from rest is lively and ideal for urban “racing”. All you have to do is accelerate, brake and steer. It looks suitably futuristic with its bubble shape, its short nose and little wheels. There is a remarkable amount of passenger space, and even the boot is worthy of the description. The 330-volt lithium-ion battery pack is under the floor, and powers a rear-mounted motor able to produce 64bhp and, from rest, 133lb/ft of torque. Maximum speed is 81mph, but not for long, and driven

gently, Peugeot say it can travel just over 90 miles on one full charge. But try sitting in a traffic jam, let the iOn off the leash on a bypass, use the heating, the headlights, the wipers and the air-con, and the range will be at least half that figure. A full recharge takes six hours on a domestic socket, and quick-charge top-ups from dedicated high-power points en-route can restore a maximum of 80% in half-an-hour, or 20% in five minutes. Peugeot say they have produced this car for private drivers, businesses and public bodies “who have the confidence and commitment to take the first steps towards a new form of motoring”. Only time, and the number of steps needed to be convinced, will tell!

Audi plug in to hybrid concept AUDI have virtually rubber-stamped their plans to build a saloon version of the next A3 by debuting a second “notchback” concept at this week’s Shanghai Motor Show. It is called the A3 e-tron, and is also a plug-in hybrid, which means it combines a regular, internal-combustion engine with an electric motor, powered by lithium ion batteries that can be pre-charged via the mains. As a result, it is capable of running for up to 34 miles on

electric power alone, while the hybrid drive also helps reduce the fuel consumption and emissions whenever you’re forced to rely on the traditional petrol engine. This A3 concept is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo, which doesn’t seem so special these days, until you learn it is cranking out 211hp. That’s as much as the current Volkswagen Golf GTI achieves with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol. With this, and an extra 27hp from the electric motor, the top speed is 144mph registers 0-62mph in 6.8secs, helped along by a launch-control system to optimise wheel slip. The machine has a custom

29 April 2011 - 05 May 2011

structure, with tailored, material thickness, plus aluminium doors, bonnet and tailgate - and carbon-fibre reinforced plastic parts in places. It also features start-stop and brake energy regeneration, and a lengthy wheelbase suggests decent comfort levels for all four passengers.

The A3 e-tron’s chassis is derived from the highlyimpressive Audi RS3 hyper hatch, while gear selection is taken care of by a sevenspeed, dual-clutch S tronic box with automatic and manual modes, via touch-controls on the centre console. Other details include newgeneration LED headlights,

power-extending, touch-sensitive door handles, powerextending, high-tech audio system, an Audi drive-select, dynamic-handling system, and 20-inch alloy wheels. The concept also has WLAN (wireless internet access), and iPad holders in the back of the front seats. And instead of a normal rev counter, the A3 e-

tron gains a “power meter”, indicating 0-100%, and showing where the car is drawing energy from at any given time. Though only a concept officially, the A3 e-tron is definitely a strong hint about the future of Audi’s compact, family-car range. And it looks good!

CD Tenerife 0 Villarreal B 1 Total and utter despair! That was my fourword answer when asked how I felt after Tenerife's defeat against Villarreal’s stiffs last weekend. I was tempted to have a headline, a couple of pictures and a blank page with just the one word at the bottom of the page. Rubbish. Or maybe Roobish, as they say in Yorkshire. But the Ed wasn’t up for that idea. The simple plan would sum it up, mind. I’m reminded of the classic quote from Friends by Jennifer Aniston’s character Rachel: “You know, I really thought I had hit rock-bottom. But today it’s like there’s rock-bottom, then 50 feet of c*** … then me.” This can't go on. Can it? I have actually forgotten when Tenerife last won a match. I want to say Xerez? The long and the short and the tall of it is that Tenerife are now 11 points from safety. But in reality, it’s 12 as Tenerife would lose any head-to-head with Nastic. In fact, one journalist wag was musing about when Tenerife would be relegated (Betis in two weeks is the favourite), and also whether they would finish last. That is very possible. Ponferradina are actually playing all right for a side at

Another Santa Cruz surrender Total and utter despair! the bottom of the table, and we could swop places with them this weekend. The latest embarrassment in Santa Cruz came in front of the lowest league crowd for six years. Barely 8,600 souls witnessed another disaster and David Amaral has now played three and lost three. Our fifth manager of the season should be looking over his shoulder. The first one was fired for losing the first four matches. Maybe Tenerife should now just give managers a monthly contract? Falque got the game’s only goal just after the half-hour mark in a match that Tenerife were never in. The fight has gone out of the side - and the supporters, it seems. Amaral changed the shape and the line-up again. Club captain Marc Betran was embarrassingly dropped to the stands, and Aitor Nunez was handed a rare start at

right-back. Josmar was given another 25 minutes at the end of the match and Iriome started his third straight game for the first time in three years. But it made no difference. The squad is a busted flush. There needs to be a rootand-branch review at the end of the season. Who will stay? Who cares right now? Let’s look at that in June. This weekend, Tenerife have the very tricky trip to Granada, who have had a solid season. But they are a tiny team and a glance at the table shows how far we have sunk. Granada are on the verge of the play-offs, thanks mainly to their excellent home form. A couple more wins should see them cement that spot, along with Celta Vigo, Elche and maybe Recreativo, who are finishing like a train. Incidentally, Angel bagged his first senior hat-trick for Elche last weekend. This was the same Angel who left

Tenerife in search of firstteam football. Not good enough for us, but good enough for the fourth-best side in a division Tenerife are about to prop up. And people still wonder why Tenerife fans have such long faces! Next season, it will be the joys of Segunda B. If you are wondering what the standard is like, well Marca TV on Sunday afternoons is your friend. I have seen a few games recently and it’s shocking. Not as bad as women’s professional football, but not much better. It’s chock full of klumpers and kids not good enough for the top flight. League One in England it ain’t. So this Sunday afternoon, stick on your CDT top, open a Dorada and cheer the lads on. Gol TV are broadcasting live with a 4pm kick-off. Maybe Tenerife's resurrection starts the week after Easter.

Palms A and Tasca triumph! A LARGE crowd enjoyed a thrilling finale to the knockout trophies last Tuesday night. The Palms Bar, in Torviscas, hosted the Liberty Seguros Cup and Plate and both finals were tight, nervy affairs. Palms A are chasing the double this season and they were pushed all the way by a bang-in-form Toscales Old Boys side, who had lost just once in 2011. Toscales started brightly. Michael missed the chance to claim the first frame and Steve made him pay with a fine clearance. Johnny was in control of frame two and Alex still had six balls left when Johnny sunk the black. Unfortunately the cue ball kissed a yellow on the cushion and rolled into the pocket. The third frame was scrappy and both players had their chances, before Graham’s cool, four-ball clearance made it 2-1. Bungalow levelled the match before Alex and Mark combined in the doubles to put Toscales back in front. Palms took the next doubles rubber, and there was nothing between the sides entering the vital back-four frames. But the seventh frame would see the momentum swing Palms’ way. Bungalow sunk an amazing black in a cat-and-mouse frame with Steve, who may still be rueing his decision to play safe rather than attempting a makeable double on the black the shot before. Roscoe squeezed past Alex in frame 8 to make it 5-3 to Palms, and with the pressure pilled on Mark, Johnny was clever enough to take the Cup with victory in frame nine. Graham beat Andy in the dead rubber to give the scoreline a slightly flattering look. Toscales deserve a lot of credit for the part they played in an excellent final, while Palms are halfway to the elusive double. Liberty Seguros Cup Final Toscales 3 Palms A 7

Andy lost to Bungalow, Alex & Mark bt Michael & Johnny, Steve & Andy lost to Roscoe & Bungalow, Steve lost to Bungalow, Alex lost to Roscoe, Mark lost to Johnny, Andy lost to Graham. The Liberty Seguros Plate was just as competitive, but Tasca held their nerve at crucial moments. Emma had Jamie in all sorts of trouble in the opening game and missed a black to give Summerlands the perfect chance. Jamie made her pay, and in the next frame Ian punished Mark for some

missed pots to make it 2-0. With a noisy crowd cheering them, on Tasca took what always looked a vital third rubber. Steve K played very tight and deserved his win over Paddy, who would go on to lose all his matches. At three down, Summerland were always chasing and even though Darrel gave them hope by beating Steve A, they lost both doubles ties to slip 5-1 down. They needed a massive effort to stay in the final, but Tasca never gave them a sniff. John Mcmastered Paddy to

sink the winning black and seal a famous victory. Elite did win two of the three dead rubbers to give the scoreline some respectability, but Tasca were worthy winners. They partied late into the night and there were a few sore heads on Wednesday.

Gaffers went back on top of Division Two after thrashing Barracuda Hunters 8-2. Only captain Roger scored for the Hunters, and his double singles success prevented a whitewash.

Horoscopes of the week Taurus

(April 21st - May 21st) The weekend is coming up, but you’re already focused, ambitious and raring to go again on Monday. Taking new steps into the unknown instead of reverting to old patterns that don’t work is a major step forward for you, so have the courage of your convictions and believe in your own abilities. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) You need to form a stronger stability with the people in your life who are always there for you. Don’t be dismissive of their efforts. They’re doing the best they can in the circumstances. Be sure of your facts over money, and make sure work goals are not just pie in the sky. CANCER (June 22ndJuly 23rd) If you allow your emotions to steer your behaviour over money matters, you’ll end up being your own worst enemy in the coming week. There’s nothing you’d like more than to get away for a few days to regroup and recharge, but can you afford it? Breaking from the past seems a good idea, but is it? LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) Red tape, restrictions and petty people seem hell-bent on standing in your way, so take the higher ground and don’t get into any name-calling. Focus on what’s good in your life, like family and friends, and make it a fun-filled weekend to remember where memories are made. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) You’re in your element as everything seems to be moving in the right direction, and you couldn’t

be happier. Work, money and love are motoring along at a steady pace, and your creativity and popularity is off the scale. You’re throwing caution to the wind and loving it. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) It might be time to have another look at those old projects you discarded earlier in the year because, with a new perspective, they could work this time. Don’t allow old doubts and disappointments to enter the equation this time. You’re on a new road, in a new mindset, so don’t hold back. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) Family members seem a bit cranky, so it may be best to give them a wide berth until this mood passes. You don’t need already-volatile relationships to combust, so put some distance between them until things settle down. Direct your energy into more positive pursuits and you’ll all win. SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) You’re desperate to bounce some new ideas off others, but they don’t seem very responsive. Don’t be despondent. They’ve maybe got a lot on their minds, too. Love and money are under pressure as the week moves on, so put obligations before pleasure and you’ll

sort it out. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) There’s been so much going on in your life of late that you’re starting to feel pressured. Why not take some time out? Could you get away for a few days? A rest is as good as a cure, it’s said, and it certainly rings true for you. You need to step back to see things more clearly. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) You’ll manage to come up with some unusual solutions to life’s problems in the next few days, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box, or go out on a limb. As goals loom closer into view, it’ll boost your confidence. Thinking of moving home? Luck is on your side, so go for it. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) The moon in your sign midweek heightens your sensitivities, but try to keep your emotions out of those important decisions you need to make. Stick to the facts and don’t let anyone push your buttons. Try to work up enthusiasm over a new project you’re interested in because it will certainly help. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) If you speak your mind clearly, calmly and succinctly, you’ll find others agreeing with you at the start of the week. However, unless you maintain this calm dignity, tensions will build before the weekend. Relationship difficulties add to the equation and don’t help. Best to take a deep breath and count to ten.
