Clash II in Tenerife Box-office Titans smash-hit brings film-makers back for sequel

Photo credit Warner Bros Pictures. Photographer Jay Maidment

TENERIFE has proved so popular for the filmmakers of the recent box-office smash, Clash of the Titans, that they are back on the Island shooting the sequel.

Filming began on Tuesday and will continue for five weeks. It is believed that the production of Clash of the Titans II will generate around five million euros of business over here. The original Clash, a 1981 fantasy adventure film based on the myth of Perseus, starred

Laurence Olivier, Claire Bloom and Ursula Andress, and was made on the Island in 1981. And last year’s remake by Warner Brothers, which was shot in 2009, also showcased Tenerife. Much of the filming for those two productions took place around the volcanic landscapes

of Teide National Park, which will again feature prominently in Clash II. Last year’s updated version featured Ralph Fiennes (Hades), Sam Worthington (Perseus) and Liam Neeson (Zeus) and was one of the most successful films of all, financially at least, raking in some £305

million (346m euros) worldwide. And the same trio, in the same roles, are also starring in the sequel, with much of the action again being concentrated on the Tenerife landscape and a fishing village in the south. Producer Basil Iwanyk says: “You could travel the world

looking for the dramatic views that are all at your disposal in Tenerife. It is a terrific resource for film-makers. “A huge contributing factor to the success of Clash of the Titans was the incredible look of the movie. Continued on page 10

Arona leads the way The Tourism department of Arona Council has implemented a comprehensive plan within the municipality to improve the road signs. The initiative was announced by the Arona Mayor and Tourism Councillor, Angel David Herrera, respectively, they commented that "Arona is the first municipality in Tenerife to implement signs of this nature." The plan aims to "ensure accessibility throughout the municipality and the interconnection with the rest of the area and promote socio-economic activities and tourism through providing better information and guidance of the main centres of tourism and economic interest of the municipality." Herrera said, "our visitors and tourists are accustomed to using more and more of our facilities and that means a need for higher quality signs to ensure proper guidance." He added, "the main objective is that the new signs that are being implemented need to offer the users a quality service,

- tourism recovery

road signs need to be comprehensive, updated and integrated respecting the basic principles of continuity, consistency and readability." The plan has been allocated a budget of around 170,000 euros, aiming to "contribute to improving road safety and user comfort in urban mobility and enhance the quality image of the municipality of Arona, participating in the creation of a more livable urban space." Mayor Reveron, mean-

while, stressed that "this initiative enables us to reassess the characteristics of the terrain, such as cultural heritage, natural areas, supplementary activities, and commercial facilities, accommodation and restaurants." On the other hand, Herrera said that "the new signs will both promote and provide information.” New signs have already been installed in the town of Arona, Costa del Silencio and Las Galletas.

Benidorm’s Madge the voice of reason FORMIDABLE Benidorm star Madge Harvey is one of the voices behind a new series of radio adverts, designed to help British citizens on all aspects of living in Spain or the Canaries. The ads will be heard on English-language radio stations across the regions over the coming months. They are part of a campaign to encourage British residents to integrate better into local Spanish communities. Everyone knows wheelchairbound Madge (Sheila Reid in real life), from the popular ITV comedy series, and she is starring alongside veteran actor Keith

Costa Adeje

Barron, Benidorm’s deputy mayor, who was also prominent in the Eighties’ sitcom Duty Free, about Brits living in Spain. Together with Derren Litten, who devised Benidorm, they are behind a series of three new radio commercials based on everyday scenarios of British residents.In one commercial, a couple returning to the UK for their daughter’s wedding discover at the airport that one of their passports is out of date and they can’t travel. In another, a son tells his father about the health care and social services he’ll miss out on if he fails to register on the Padrón, at the local town hall. All three commercials highlight the wealth of information available to British residents on the UKinSpain website, provided by the British Embassy in Spain, which can be

found at ukinspain.fco.gov.uk. The campaign highlights what local British Consulates say are some of the most common issues facing Brits in Spain. They are warned to make sure their passports are valid, and to ensure they keep contact details up to date, so that help can be found if they are involved in accidents or hospitalised. A second big issue concerns Brits who fail to register on the Padrón, and who may later discover they don’t qualify for healthcare or social services when they get older. The adverts will be heard as public-service commercials during advertising breaks on English-speaking radio stations across Spain, including the Canary Islands.

Cruise crime prevention When you arrive onboard a cruise ship to any port you are somewhat a ‘sitting target’ for petty street crime, Unipol, one section of the Police in the island’s capital Santa Cruz have put measures in place to ensure visitors have a trouble free shore day in Tenerife. Police are distributed through the port area and all surrounding areas through which these tourists pass to avoid any problems.The Police

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

pointed out that monitoring is carried out in an unobtrusive manner, combining the presence of both uniformed and plainclothes officers. The Port Authority itself IN Santa Cruz de Tenerife has welcomed he deployment of the officers specifically for cruise passengers. Depending on the number of cruise passengers are expected at each visit, the local police distributed more or less resources, so that its presence may vary from two to four teams of Unipol, with the respective vehicles and dog handlers. Offences curtailed include everything fro begging, to pick pocketing to locating a missing child.

According to the latest figures provided by the Tourism Research Council of Tenerife, Costa Adeje maintained a positive upward trend, building on the positive results already started in 2010, Costa Adeje experienced the highest tourist figure growth in Tenerife of 9.2% which is higher than the same time period last year, growing above the average of 6.8%. Adeje Tourism councilor, Miguel Angel Santos Cruz said, “It’s a positive start to the year.” Costa Adeje has a proliferation of five star hotels, an area which seems to have benefited from the growth, receiving 12.2% of visitors. As for the non-hotel sector the growth has been much more moderate, rising by 3.4%, which Santos described as "negligible." In relation to occupancy figures the Tourism Councillor said that "we have an occupation

figure of 83.25% this is above the average, other accommodation represents 54.74%." In terms of average stays, he said that it amounted to 9.21 days, which is an increase so that means the tourists that do visit are spending longer. Santos explained that "the conflicts in Tunisia and Egypt, have helped this growth, but the fact is that the main markets visiting Costa Adeje, are the British and Germans, which is working well," he added: "we are pleased because the data shows that this growth is not caused by a temporary situation, but the joint efforts of entrepreneurs and managers." “The addition of new routes from France and Italy, has allowed these markets to grow by 51% and 34% respectively, in two traditional markets which we have watched, year after year, a steady decline, we are now thus breaking the trend”. The councillor stressed “the need to provide a good network of air connectivity, which is the first step, without which you can not grow in any market."

Antiques show’s such an eye-opener for collectors IF you haven’t yet visited the Antiques, Vintage and Collectibles’ Fair in Santa Cruz, which started on Tuesday, there’s still time! It will be open today (Friday) and over the weekend, finishing on Sunday at 2pm. And it’s well worth popping into the Centro de Arte La Recova (the former market building) if you have a fondness for golden oldies of all descriptions. The fair was put

together by the Colectivo de Almonedas de Tenerife, an international group of collectors and dealers, specialising in vintage and antique pieces. It will be open today and tomorrow (Saturday) from 12 noon until 9pm, and from 11am-2pm.on Sunday, All sorts of items are available, from just one euro upwards, including postcards, stamps, LPs, furniture, lighting, decorative items, pictures and paintings, porcelain, ceramics, vintage clothes etc. Yet it is far from a self-

indulgent, cash-in-the-pocket event because organisers Sophie Baillon and Carmen Jimenez are raising funds for the local Rotary Club in the capital to help with its campaign to eradicate worldwide polio.Restoration experts will also be on hand to offer advice about techniques, and offer quotes for restoring items.

Luther King kids get a real taste for shark A 20-STRONG party of pupils from San Miguel’s Luther King College got their teeth into learning about sharks at Siam Park last week. It formed part of the diverse activities offered jointly by the Loro Park Foundation and Siam Park, who are making their resources available to pupils from all over Spain, free of charge. The Luther King children were educated in the ways of sharks and the threats which put this species at risk, in an attempt to encourage interest and support for their conservation. Following some theory information, the children moved on to the Tower of Power, accompanied by monitors, to see the different species and identify them in their own habitat. Class over, it was time for the children to enjoy some free time on the rides in Europe’s most spectacular water park. Already in this school year,

the joint venture has produced some 200 activities, many via video conference calls, with schools and colleges in the Canary Islands and mainland Spain.

The parks will to continue to encourage and promote similar experiences, and will also offer informative educational opportunities to schoolchildren of all ages.

havin a laff at Siam Park! The Tenerife Comedy Club was back last weekend at Showtime, with a good weekend had by all. Regular host, Will Marsh, introduced Andy Watson, Tim Shishodia, Simon Feilder and Adam Crowe to packed houses on Friday and Sunday night, but in between they all had a bit of extra fun themselves with a special trip to the Siam Park. Promoter, Chris Elkington, had arranged one of the VIP cabins for the day overlooking the Siam Park beach, which come with complimentary mini bars, flat screen tv’s, and wrist bands for fast track on all rides, and free food and drink in all of the restaurants on site. Simon who last came to Tenerife in 1993 as a 13 year old said: “This place is absolutely amazing, I can’t believe how Tenerife has changed and improved for the better.’ Adam who performs around the world added, ‘Siam Park is fantastic, it compares with any water park around the world, and the fact that you have the weather all year round in Tenerife, should only make it more of an asset.’ All the guys took advantage of the fast track onto the rides and slides, and the general concensus at the end of the day was that the Dragon was their favourite... although only Andy was brave enough to take on the Tower Of Power! Will was unavailable for

comment as he spent most of the day in the restaurants sampling all the food on offer. If you would like to

book a cabin at Siam Park for the day, prices start at 300 euros for four adults (residents), or 400 euros for non-

residents, call 902 060 000…..it really is an amazing way to spend a day at the ultimate water kingdom!

Coastal clear-up Tenerife to be ‘Tourism Power’ Last weekend more than 500 kilos of waste (similar to a pallet laden with 500 bags of sugar) was collected from the seafloor and the coastline of Play Chica in Puerto de Santiago.

The activity was organised by the Department of Tourism, Santiago del Teide, directed by Steven Gerald Mckenna and the Diving Club "Riaansscuba, assisted by the Volunteer Firefighters from Santiago del Teide and Adeje, plus ‘Club de Surf - Punta Blanca,’ the Spanish Association of Lifeguards and in addition a large number of

local volunteers. The activity was intended to sensitise the local population and tourists of the importance in protecting and conserving marine biodiversity and contribute to marine conservation, raising awareness amongst coastal users of the need to consider fishing habits to keep the marine ecosystem healthy. At the end of the activity a great paella was served for all the participants in the activity.

That’s the positive message from the current President of the Canary Islands, Paulino Rivero, who has insisted that the Canaries will receive 12 million tourists in 2011. The comment was made during a meeting with the transport sector, where he was discussing the government’s commitment to attracting a million more visitors to the Islands.. Rivero feels that the archipelago has the potential

conditions to be "the world’s first tourism power," but this position is dependent on the development of communications and accessibility, "because it is a strategic axis in the EU policies towards Africa." Rivero said that this context is "key" to the transport sector, a sector that is "represents more than eight percent of gross domestic product (GDP) canary." He said that after tourism, "and with the downturn in construction, transportation is the most important sector of the Canaries and has a huge potential for further development.”

Safety at work In 2010, 10,042 people were registered in Spain with diseases caused or aggravated by work the Social Security detected. Of these, 9,467 were for non-traumatic illnesses caused by work and 575 to disease aggravated by work. These are the results of a survey conducted by the Social Security. In recent years, the General Directorate of Social Security has developed a set of actions designed to obtain information in order to improve the prevention of risks, reduce accidents in

businesses and improve the processing and protection from disease. In 2010 there were 18,186 occupational illnesses in Spain. Spain and France are the countries of the European Union which recorded a higher number of reported illnesses due to work and they have, as recognized by the EU itself, the more effective information systems with major emphasis on prevention. Thus, the relationship between the number of occupational diseases and deaths of people in work resulting from them is very low. In 2010, five workers died of occupational diseases, these must be added to 291 deaths of permanent disability from occupational

disease in the same year, of which 42 were under 65 years and the rest was over that age. The sick leave due to occupational disease has been reduced from 11,400 in 2007 to 8,765 in 2010, while reports of occupational disease that does not lead to absence from work has increased from 5,418 to 8,077 over the same period. In 2009 there were 700,000 accidents which resulted in days off work. Interestingly, the national average stands at 5.24 accidents-time for every 100 people. The sectors with most accidents as you would expect are Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries with 22.99 accidents per 100 people.

International athletics An international athletics event is taking pace on the 14th and 15th May at the Athletics Stadium Antonio Dominguez, Playa de Las Americas and entrance is free. Arona was chosen to host this championship due to the quality of its sporting facilities, it

Train office still standing

at the Adeje platform... THE mobile office offering information on the proposed Tenerife North-South railway is extending its stay in Adeje until this Sunday (15th May). The stand will remain on the promenade, opposite the Hotel Hesperia Troya, over the weekend, opening from 10am-8pm. Thanks to the success of the

stand, and the large number of residents and tourists showing an interest in the project, the information office will continue to feed the public with current news, using flyers, plans and graphic photos focusing on the southern train. The office has proved so popular that it attracted 2.300 visitors in the first six days. The railway project can also be followed via the official website www.trenesdetenerife.com which provides its own TV

channel, broadcasting all the latest news and details. It is also featured on Facebook’s Me gusta and Trenes de Tenerife page, and on Twitter.

Adeje’s new Bike Park The municipality of Adeje, specifically the area of Las Torres, has a new infrastructure. It is a Bike Park, the only one on the island, which has an area of 3850 square meters. The park is designed to complement the range of sports facilities and meet the demand of the residents, especially young people. The park has had a budget of 183,750 euros and is designed with strict safety regulations. This project has had the participation of several young fans who have been able to collaborate on the development. In addition, users must meet certain standards, set out in the park, at all times, to

ensure proper use and proper compliance with safety standards, including mandatory use of helmets, etc. The mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga visited recently to see the facili-

ties of the park. The new bike park enables a large number of cyclists to practice an alternative bike sport, using the new forms, shapes and tracks that make up the park.

Joint bid to help reduce jobless tally ADEJE Town Hall has signed an initial one-year agreement to actively promote the task of getting the unemployed back to work. The joint contract is with the Canary Islands Foundation for Promotion of Employment (FUNCATRA). Ermitas Moreira Garcia, Councillor for the Economic Development and Employment Policies, said: “Adeje will offer development training and employment to establish networking

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

channels and, hopefully, embellish the economic development.” Through the agreement, FUNCATRA is committed to co-operating with the Agency of Local Development and Employment at Adeje Town Hall regarding the administration of the project. It will also work together with Adeje to set up joint training and employment vehicles, such as workshops and courses. If both sides are happy with the agreement at the end of 12 months, they will probably continue in the same vein on an annual renewal basis.

Teenagers convicted of At last! It’s the grand finale murdering Silencio man of Tenerife Loves Karaoke TWO teenagers have been convicted of murdering a British businessman at his holiday home in Costa del Silencio last year. The boys, who were school kids aged 14 and 16 and of South American origin, stabbed 71-year-old Peter Cockshutt to death after he had disturbed their attempted burglary in the February. They are facing a maximum sentence of eight years, but could be released after serving just over three years in a young offenders’ institution. The Santa Cruz court heard on Wednesday that Mr Cockshutt, of Brandesburton, near Hornsea, East Yorkshire, was held down and stabbed with a knife and a screwdriver, twice in the chest and once in the leg. The judge will decide in the next two weeks on their sentence, and they are expected to be given the maximum eight-year term in a young offenders' institution. But with 18 months already served on remand by them, and with three of the eight years on licence, the teenagers could be free within 3½ years. They were charged with Mr Cockshutt's murder just days afterwards the robbery.

Although they had admitted killing him, they were convicted of murder after the twoday trial at Palacia de Justicia. The murdered man’s family faced the killers for the first time this week and his widow, Patricia, said she could not forgive them because they showed little sign of remorse. ”It was the first time we had set eyes on them,” said Mrs Cockshutt. “The older one apologised but the younger one said only one word in Spanish. “I don’t know if it was sorry or not, but we didn’t see them show any remorse during the trial. It’s hard to describe how I feel. It seemed as though it had all just been a story until I saw those who killed Peter. “I feel very angry and there is no way I can forgive them even more so now. We heard that they decided beforehand to break in somewhere using MSN (instant messaging). They even took pictures of their mates on the camera they stole from Peter.” Mrs Cockshutt, 72 on the day of sentencing, had travelled back and forth to Tenerife five times to meet lawyers since her husband’s death. The trial had been scheduled for March, but it was delayed so blood samples could be examined. Her 44-year-old daughter, Mrs

Anne Cole said: “The two days in court were very long, and it was an emotional time. But we have suffered for much longer than that. “I have not been back to work at British Airways for over a year because I have been trying to deal with the lawyers and also looking after my dad’s distribution business. I have spent much of my time away from my family.” Mr Cockshutt, a retired electrician who ran his own business, had lived in east Hull with his wife and five children for most of his life. The couple moved to Brandesburton, two years ago. Following Mr Cockshutt’s retirement, they began to spend up to six months of the year in Costa del Silencio, where they were well known. Mrs Cole believes the killers will offend again once they are set free. “These children look like thugs and they are thugs,” she said. “They lied and showed no remorse. “They were given the chance to speak, but they hardly said a word. Even now, we don't exactly know why they did it.” She added: “I have no qualms in saying they will do something like this again. Even our lawyer believes they will. It is sad to think another family could suffer in the way we have.”

THE 14th and final heat of Tenerife Loves Karaoke produced another “first” for the competition at the Wigan Pier, in Starco Las Americas, last Sunday. In the previous heat, a male duo won for the first time to make their way into tomorrow (Saturday) night’s Grand Final at Showtime, Las Americas. And this time two finalists (male and female) were voted through. The support for singers and the competition itself was as good as it had been for all the previous heats, and a full complement of 15 entrants competed for the final two spots. And, as with every other actionpacked heat, the standard of singing was extremely good, which made the judges’ task in

determining the last three for the sing-off really difficult. Once they had made their minds up, however, Nadia and Aiden came out on top and went through to complete the final line-up. Now, the 15 finalists are all set to battle it out for the 500euro 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 Oasis Fm organisers would like to thank everyone involved in this fun competition, from the

venues which held the heats, ALL the karaoke singers who have taken part, ALL the people who have come along and clapped, cheered and supported the competition (over 1,500). They have all contributed to making Tenerife Loves Karaoke the biggest talent contest so far this year, and we look forward to seeing everyone again tomorrow night. You are reminded that this is a non-ticket event, there are no table reservations and doors open at 8pm, so just come down and enjoy the evening.

Double earthquake brings death and horror to Spain NINE people were killed on Wednesday after two large earthquakes rocked Spain’s Murcia region in the space of two hours. The tremors sent buildings crashing, and hundreds of others were also affected in the holiday town of Lorca, where many British expats have homes. Tragically, two pregnant women were among the fatalities, and a 14-year-old boy, according to Spanish newspaper reports. All the dead were Spanish, and eight of the nine have been identified. Workers in the area say that at least six more people are missing, although other reports speak of just one. Most of the fatalities came from the Las Viñas area of the town and altogether, more than 400 people were reportedly injured as we went to press last night (Thursday). The first earthquake happened at around 5pm local time, and the second, which lasted just four seconds, was the worst to hit the country since 12 people died in the

southern Granada region in 1956. Large chunks of stone and brick fell from the facade of a church in Lorca as a reporter for Spanish state TV was broadcasting live from the scene. The church bell also came crashing down during the second quake. The broadcaster reported that schoolchildren usually gathered at the spot around that time and said that if it had happened 10 minutes later, another “tragedy” could have occurred. Dozens of injured people were being treated at the scene and a field hospital was set up in the town. The first tremor registered a magnitude of 4.4 and hit the south-eastern town, a 90minute drive from Alicante. The second one, with a magnitude of 5.3, was felt as far away as Alicante, Malaga and Almeria. The quakes were followed by a series of aftershocks. One unnamed woman told a national radio station: “We were just sitting here and everything began to move. Pictures fell from the wall, the TV fell and it went on for ages. “We looked out of the window and there were a lot of people

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

running, and we saw an ambulance and the police.” Soldiers were immediately sent to the disaster zone to help rescue workers search for more victims, while officials organised a house-to-house search on Wednesday night in the worstaffected areas.A number of the town’s 100,000 inhabitants spent the night in emergency shelters, while around 20,000 residents stayed outside, fearful of returning to their homes in case there were more tremors. Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, who described the damage as “considerable”, plans to visit the tragic scene this morning (Friday) after the cabinet meeting. He has reassured residents that all necessary measures to restore normality will be made available as quickly as possible. Central Government has now mobilised 800 soldiers from the UME Military Emergency Units, who will help rebuild the town. The clean-up operation is now underway, with municipal technicians estimating that all the blocks in the town centre have suffered some damage.

Lorca has suffered more than 30 after-shocks since the main quake and one, at 10,37pm, reached 4 on the Richter Scale. The Town Hall has called three days of official mourning for the victims. Local train lines are now operating normally, but schools will remain closed until the state of their buildings can be property assessed

Ramón Luis Valcárcel, PP President of the Murcia region, says the quakes have damaged 80% of the homes in the area. The National Geographic Institute notes that Spain has about 2,500 quakes a year, but only a handful are actually noticed by people. The country’s south and south-east are the most earthquake-prone regions.

This latest tremor comes hot on the heels of an earlier quake measuring 2.8 on the Richter scale with its epicentre in Lorca, in mid-March. And in January 2005, nearly 1,000 homes were damaged in Lorca, Zarcilla de Ramos and La Paca when an earthquake reaching 4.7 on the Richter scale was followed by 500 aftershocks.

Clash of the Titans II - continued Filming on location there enabled us to achieve the scope we wanted for the epic adventures of Perseus. “And we have returned to Tenerife to recapture some of what was established in the previous movie.” He is obviously rubbing his hands with glee at utilising the incredible backdrop on the Island, and Tenerife Tourism Minister Jose Manuel Bermudez is also ecstatic. “It is important for the Island to embrace the shooting of this super-production.,” he said. The last one came eighth in takings in Spain last year and was one of the best box-office hits in history. “This means several million people saw the film, which implies an incredible promotion of our potential as a natural set as there are few places in the world where such a variety of locations can be found.” Much of the filming will take place in agricultural areas, in a fishing village in the South, as well in the forests (compete with pine trees and lava) in the boroughs of Buenavista, Arico, Adeje, Santiago del Teide, Granadilla de Abona, La Oratova and Guia de Isora. And all the necessary bodies

have weighed in to assist the production, including Tenerife Tourism, the Council Environment and Roads offices, the town councils whose areas are involved in the shooting, the Coasts Provincial Service and the National Government local office. Also involved are the Canarian production company Furia de Titanes II AIE, who are co-producing the Tenerife involvement and providing other services related to the film. Local firm Sur-Film Production & Services are also offering their expertise. Producer Basil Iwanyk told Canarian Weekly, “It was an easy decision to come back, the first movie was a great experience, take into account the environment, the close proximity, the diverse locations, hotels and service – simple, it was a no brainer.” Endearingly in conversation he refers to the name of the film as simply ‘Clash’ , “The second Clash is big, it’s complex, it’s difficult We’re creating a world that didn’t exist, people, places, visual effects. Lot of our crew are battle tested, we bring lessons learnt first time around” As well as kudos the film is making an impact on the local economy. The producers told

Canarian Weekly, “we’re employing nearly 300 people, being used as extras and nearly 400 trades-people being used, everyone from drivers to plasterers to the Tenerife marine department!” On this occasion there is a larger crew involved both locally and at an international level.” The storyline revolves around Perseus, the mortal son of the god, Zeus, and the first of the mythic heroes of Greek mythology, whose exploits in defeating various archaic monsters were legendary. In Clash of the Titans, he embarked on a perilous journey to stop the underworld and its minions from spreading their evil to Earth as well as the heavens. Perseus achieved his task after many colourful escapades and now, a decade after his heroic defeat of the monstrous Kraken, the sequel sees the demigod attempting to live a peaceful life as a village fisherman and sole parent of his 10year old son, Helius. It’s a continuation of the Perseus journey, but with more attention being paid to the human side of the story. Meanwhile, a struggle for supremacy rages between the gods and the Titans. Dangerously weakened by humanity's lack of devotion, the

gods are losing control of the imprisoned Titans and their ferocious leader, Kronos, father of the long-ruling brothers Zeus, Hades and Poseidon. The triumvirate had overthrown their powerful father long ago, leaving him to rot in the gloomy abyss of an underworld dungeon. Perseus cannot ignore his true calling when Hades, along with

Ares, the godly son of Zeus, switch loyalty and make a deal with Kronos to capture Zeus. The Titans’ strength grows stronger as the remaining godly powers of Zeus are siphoned and hell is unleashed on earth. All of the main character will be here on Tenerife, except, Ralph Fiennes (Hades) and Liam Neeson (Zeus) as their scenes are not set here.

This time the epic is being filmed in 3D unlike the first movie, it’s planned, and shot all in 3D so it will have a greater impact for the cinema go-er. Want to find out more? You’ll just have to wait until the film goes public in the next year or so, although the initial release will be in the States 30th March 2012.

The world’s sporting legends pay their last respects to Seve HE came from a small fishing village in Spain and grew up to become one of the greatest sporting icons of all. But Severiano Ballesteros meant much more than that to millions around the world. That much was made clear when the news of his death last Saturday came through. At 54, the handsome, devil-may-care golfer, known simply as Seve to his legions of followers, captured the hearts of everyone who came into contact with him, physically or via the television. Seve was struck by a malignant brain tumour three years ago when just 51 but tragically, despite his fierce battle to beat the disease, and the chemotherapy which accompanied it, he succumbed in the end. His funeral took place on Wednesday to the sound of a lone bagpiper in his native village of Pedreña, northern Spain, in the bay of Santander, where hundreds of locals lined the streets in tribute. Many of the world’s leading names in golf congregated to pay their last respects, including Britons Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie, Sam Torrance, Ian Woosnam and Bernard

Gallacher, as well as his great Spanish pal, Jose Maria Olazabal. Among the 1,500 mourners was also a superb clutch of mighty Spanish sports figures, like five-time Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain, Real Madrid football hero Emilio Butragueno and bullfighting legend Enrique Ponce. The large crowd outside the church burst into applause as Seve’s ashes reached the tiny church of San Pedro, which was filled to its 400-person capacity. Locals, friends and others watched from one of the three giant screens set up outside. Faldo, Britain’s most successful golfer, said: “I’m glad I could make it. Some of the shots I played over the years were copied directly from Seve.” Tiger Woods, ranked among the golfing legends, said: “He was one of the most talented and exciting golfers ever to play the game.” And current world No1 Lee Westwood said of the Spaniard: “Seve made European golf what it is today.”Seve’s career spanned 20 years, from the mid-Seventies to the mid-Nineties, until back-related injuries put paid to any lingering ambitions he may have harboured.

He won five Majors - three Open Championships and two US Masters and was also successful in the Ryder Cup, helping the European team to five wins, both as a player and captain. Ballesteros also equalled the World Match Play Championship record with five wins, and he is generally regarded as the greatest Spanish golfer of all time. When his playing days were over, he turned to the business of constructing golf courses and actually designed the magnificent Buenavista Golf course, which opened in north-west Tenerife in the Isla Baja region in 2003. Another Spanish sporting hero, tennis star Rafael Nadal, who said felt enormously privileged to have once played 18 holes with Seve, shed tears in public when he learned of his death.The Wimbledon champion paid him a moving tribute, saying: “He has been the most important sportsman in Spain’s history. He was a pioneer and someone who has done something amazing. We all looked at him as a role model.” No one could have written a more fitting tribute to the modest superstar, whose ashes were laid to rest in the garden of his family home, beneath a magnolia tree.

BA agrees deal to end crippling strikes British Airways has agreed a deal with the Unite union to end a twoyear dispute that prompted a series of crippling cabin crew strikes. As Sky News revealed would happen last night, Unite's representatives have told a mass meeting near Heathrow airport they are recommending the proposed deal. The union describes it as an "honourable agreement" which will lead to the return of travel perks to cabin crew - removed by Willie Walsh when he was BA chief executive at the height of the dispute. Progress has also been made on the other main sticking point covering disciplinary action against dozens of Unite members. The proposals will also cover the issue of time off for union

reps as well as the ability of Unite to represent staff working on BA's so-called new fleet. A new two-year pay agreement is also included and the whole deal will now go to a ballot within the next few weeks, with the result likely in July. The row started in February 2009 over cost-cutting but developed into a fallout over travel concessions taken away from union members who went on strike. Members of Unite staged 22 days of strikes last year which cost BA over ÂŁ150m and threats of further walkouts soured industrial relations at the airline. Travel concessions were removed from those who took industrial action and there were a number of disciplinary cases taken against Unite members. The two sides came close to a deal last year, but peace hopes collapsed, leaving the dispute deadlocked. BA's former chief executive, Willie Walsh, moved on to head

the airline's merger with Spanish carrier Iberia, and Unite elected Len McCluskey to succeed former joint general secretaries Tony Woodley and Derek Simpson. The change in leaderships gave a fresh impetus to moves to resolve the row, leading to new talks in recent weeks. Unite members voted recently to stage more strikes but the union held back from naming dates in a sign that progress could be made. At a of meeting of union members and officials Mr McCluskey said: "You should be proud of yourselves. "You demonstrated the type of solidarity which is astounding." He later told reporters he believed crew would now help BA repair the airline's "damaged" brand. Around 7,000 Unite members were affected by the removal of travel concessions, an issue at the top of the union's agenda for resolving the dispute. They give BA crew 90% off the normal price of an airline ticket.

Boy, 15, dies after Bullet sent to London street stabbing

A bullet addressed to Neil Lennon has been sent to Celtic's home ground, sources at the club have said.

A 15-year-old schoolboy has died after being stabbed in a street in south London. The teenager was attacked after a fight in Camberwell, south London. A murder hunt has been launched and detectives are understood to have made several arrests overnight. The boy was pronounced dead six hours after he was taken to hospital from the scene of the attack in Cormont Road. Detectives from the Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating. Police are still trying to establish a motive for the attack. It is not yet known if the murder was gang-related. The boy is the fifth teenager to be stabbed to death in the capital this year. Family members have been informed but formal identification of the victim has yet to take

place. DCI John McFarlane said: "I am appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the altercation or seen youths acting suspiciously in the area in and around Cormont Road to contact the incident room." Call police on 0208 721 4205 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Police are investigating the parcel, which was delivered to the Celtic Park stadium. It comes after a 26-year-old man was charged over an attack on the Celtic boss during a Clydesdale Bank Premier League game against Hearts at Tynecastle on Wednesday night. A fan clambered from the Hearts section of the main stand onto the pitch and charged towards Lennon, who was on the touchline shortly after his team's second goal. He aimed a punch at the manager

before security officials stepped in and he was taken away by police at the Edinburgh stadium. The man charged over the attack is due to appear before Edinburgh Sheriff Court. Strathclyde Police previously said they had detained two men, aged 41 and 43, over parcel bombs sent to the Celtic manager and two other high-profile fans of the club in March. And this attack has prompted questions as to whether it is the latest in a series of sectarian incidents to have plagued Celtic and their manager. Lothian and Borders Police said Lennon's attacker has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal and will appear in court. The 39-year-old manager said on

his Twitter page after the match: "Don't let what happened to me tonight take the shine off a wonderful team performance... I don't walk alone." As well as being sent two parcel bombs, Lennon has suffered death threats in the past. Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond said: "This sort of behaviour is utterly unacceptable... We cannot have the safety of individuals endangered by such mindless incidents, and our national game tarnished." Celtic assistant manager Johan Mjallby told Sky Sports 1 that Lennon was "shaken" by the latest incident. He said: "What has happened to Neil is a dark day for Scottish football and I've never seen anything like it. He is shaken but okay."

If you wish to find out more, call 902 123 161 now.

Liberal Democrat MP David Laws has apologised in the Commons after a Parliamentary committee concluded he should be suspended for seven days for breaking rules on MPs' expenses. He resigned as Chief Secretary to the Treasury last May after claims he paid tens of thousands of pounds in taxpayers' money to rent accommodation from his lover. The MP for Yeovil had been considered a rising star in the Lib Dems but quit his post days after the coalition formed when it emerged he paid £40,000 to boyfriend Jamie Lundie. Mr Laws told MPs he accepted the conclusions of the inquiry and took "complete and personal responsibility for the mistakes I made". "[I] apologise without reservation to the House and my constituents."

He added: "I've made clear since this matter first became public that my motivation was solely to protect my privacy and not to benefit in any way from the expenses system." The Standards and Privileges Committee found the 45year-old committed "a series of serious breaches of rules". Each of us should be our own sternest critic, and I recognise that my attempts to keep my personal life private were in conflict with my duty as an MP. It said in its report: "We recommend that Mr Laws should be suspended from the service of the House for a period of seven sitting days." The suspension should begin on June 7, the cross-party committee added. When the scandal broke, the MP explained the claims by saying his relationship with Mr Lundie had been "unknown to both family and friends" and he had wanted to keep it private. The committee's report said Mr Laws

had already repaid £56,592 the full amount of his second home allowance claims between July 2006 and July 2009. It was also noted the MP referred his own conduct to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner and had co-operated fully with the investigation. However, the watchdog said: "Whatever his motives and subsequent behaviour, Mr Laws was guilty of a series of serious breaches of the rules, over a considerable time." David Cameron and Nick Clegg have a high regard for the MP, who played a crucial role drafting the coalition's deficit reduction plan during his brief time at the Treasury. Speculation has been growing that Mr Laws could be brought back to work in the Cabinet Office. A senior Lib Dem source said there was nothing in the committee's report that ruled out Mr Laws' return to Government at a later date.

Gaddafi appears on Libyan state television Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has appeared on state television - the first time he has been seen in weeks. Footage screened by the broadcaster showed him meeting and talking to what were billed as tribal leaders in a Tripoli hotel. A presenter said the meeting took place on Wednesday, and the camera zoomed in on a screen in the background bearing the date. Col Gaddafi had not appeared in public since April 30, when a Nato air strike on a house in the capital reportedly killed his youngest son and three of his grandchildren. His absence from public view sparked speculation that he had been wounded or even killed. "We tell the world: 'Those are the representatives of the Libyan tribes,'" Col Gaddafi said as he pointed to his visitors, naming a few of them. He was wearing a

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

brown robe with a hat and sunglasses and sat in an armchair near a small round table. An elderly man assured him: "You will be victorious." There was no date stamp on the footage itself, and no independent confirmation that the meeting took place on Wednesday. Hours earlier, rebels fighting to unseat Col Gaddafi said they had won a major victory in the western port city of Misratah, seizing control of the airport and large quantities of weapons and munitions. The rebels have been fighting across the North African country to end Gaddafi's 41 years in power, backed by Nato-led air strikes which Western countries say will continue until Col Gaddafi is toppled. The port city of Misratah is the last major rebel-held bastion in the west. Meanwhile, David Cameron is holding talks with Libyan rebel leaders. The Prime Minister has been meeting Mustafa Abdul Jalil, chairman of

the Interim National Transitional Council (NTC), in Downing Street. Mr Jalil is also meeting the Deputy Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Secretary of State for International Development. Speaking ahead of the visit, Foreign Secretary William Hague said: "I am very pleased to welcome Mr Abdul Jalil to the UK. "The NTC is a legitimate representative of the Libyan people. "The situation in Libya remains of very serious concern, and this visit provides a welcome opportunity to discuss with Mr Abdul Jalil the latest situation on the ground and to look at how the UK and international community can continue to support the Libyan people. "We will discuss a range of issues, including the establishment of a permanent NTC office in London and the provision of further non-lethal equipment and support to the NTC."

Police to give drivers Madeleine's

on-the-spot fines Police will be able to hand out on-the-spot fines for careless driving under a new strategy to make Britain's roads safer. Motorists who tailgate, undertake or cut up other drivers could be handed an immediate fine of up to ÂŁ100 rather than being taken to court. The Government says its new road safety strategy aims to shift the focus from penalising motorists who make minor transgressions and honest mistakes to pursuing persistently reckless and dangerous drivers. There will be a new crackdown on drug-driving and loopholes which allow people to get off drink-driving charges will be closed, said the Department for Transport (DfT). Disqualified drivers will be forced to retrain - and possibly have to take another test before they regain their licence. And the courts will be encouraged to make more use of their powers to seize vehicles for the

most serious offences. The Government is also looking into plans to increase the motorway speed limit to 80mph. In a written statement to MPs, Transport Secretary Philip Hammond will also announce a new approach to drivers who make genuine mistakes on the roads and extra help for those who have just passed their tests and need to keep improving their skills. A wider range of retraining and education courses will be on offer for low-level offences. And novice drivers will be able to take additional qualifications to reassure insurers that they are safe behind the wheel, in a bid to reverse the steep upward trend in premiums for less experienced motorists. The Transport Secretary said alternatives to fines and penalty points will be more widely available for anyone making the odd lapse. And he vowed that for "persistent, wilful and reckless drivers, we will clamp down on them hard, concentrating police and court resources on this group."

Sources close to Mr Hammond claimed it is a "sea change" from Labour's approach, which relied heavily on speed cameras and did not differentiate between drivers. It is intended to target genuinely reckless drivers, rather than wasting police and court time by putting generally law-abiding motorists in the dock. The Government has scrapped grants given to councils for speed cameras in a bid to reduce their number. A DfT spokesman said: "The strategy will focus on cracking down on the really reckless drivers through more efficient enforcement.

"By giving the police the tools to deal with those who present the greatest danger to others we can make our roads even safer. "While seeking to do everything possible to tackle the most dangerous drivers, the strategy will also help the responsible majority to improve their driving. This is the Government's twin approach to improving road safety." Convictions for offences related to bad driving fell from 125,000 in 1985 to 28,900 in 2006, suggesting that many cases are going unpunished, said the DfT.

Firms post mug-shots online to catch criminals Business owners preyed upon by petty thieves hope they will be caught more quickly thanks to new web technology which passes CCTV evidence to police. The Facewatch website has been set up to allow traders to upload video images of shoplifters and bag-snatchers, so they can be followed up by local forces. "It saves valuable time," said bar owner and company founder

Simon Gordon. "Rather than call the police, wait for an officer to turn up, then hang about while he gets the CCTV and takes it back to the station to watch, now managers can use the software to upload footage to the website. "Police can start the investigation straight away." Victims of crime can send a witness statement to police and receive a crime reference number without leaving the premises. This allows us to view the evidence at an early stage in the investigation, which is often a very

difficult and time consuming aspect. The scheme also creates a database of offenders so that images and information can be shared between businesses. Facewatch is being launched in Widnes in Cheshire after a successful six-month trial in London. According to the company, 45 outlets signed up to the pilot and 39% of all incidents so far have ended in a criminal conviction. Deputy Chief Constable Graeme Gerrard, of Cheshire Police, said the force is embrac-

ing technology to save time and money. "There are so many thousands of CCTV cameras in this country but often what's most difficult for us is getting hold of and locating the relevant piece of evidence. "This allows us to view the evidence at an early stage in the investigation, which is often a very difficult and time consuming aspect. "If it's successful in Cheshire I can see more forces coming on board."Members pay a monthly subscription starting from ÂŁ15 per month.

Paper cuts Clinton out of picture Hillary Clinton has been edited out of a picture showing senior White House staff watching live footage of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden by an ultraOrthodox Jewish newspaper in New York. The photo, showing the US Secretary of State and

Page 14

President Barack Obama in the Situation Room has become one of the most widely published images in the world. Despite a White House disclaimer that "The photograph may not be manipulated in any way," various versions have been reproduced across the internet. But the one causing the most attention is a Hasidic newspaper's men-only version in which Mrs Clinton and counter-terrorism director Audrey Tomason have been removed.

This act of censorship is actually a violation of the Jewish legal principle of g'neivat da'at (deceit). Brooklyn-based publication Der Tzitung's editorial policy excludes images of women because they could be considered sexually suggestive. The ultra-Orthodox approach has come under fire from other Jewish publications as well as liberal groups. Jewish Week's Rabbi Jason Miller wrote: "Der Tzitung edited Hillary Clinton out of the photo, thereby changing history.

"To my mind, this act of censorship is actually a violation of the Jewish legal principle of g'neivat da'at (deceit)." The doctored photograph has now gone viral, with many bloggers outraged at its affront to women.

parents urge PM

to review case

The parents of missing Madeleine McCann have asked David Cameron for an "independent, transparent and comprehensive review" of their daughter's case. Kate and Gerry McCann wrote to the Prime Minister on the eve of Madeleine's eighth birthday in an attempt to have all the information held by British and Portuguese authorities looked at again. Madeleine McCann was just three when she disappeared on holiday in Portugal in 2007. Their letter, published in The Sun, reads: "Dear Prime Minister, as a devoted father and family man you know the importance of children. "We are asking you to help find Madeleine and bring her back to her loving family. "We live in hope that Madeleine will be found alive and returned to us. "To this end, we are seeking a joint independent, transparent and comprehensive review of all information held in relation to Madeleine's disappearance. "Thus far, there has been no formal review of the material held by the police authorities which is routine practice in most major unsolved crimes. "It is not right that a young, vulnerable British citizen has essentially been given up on. This remains an unsolved case of a missing child." Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns, told Sky News the couple hoped the review would lead to all of the information held in both countries being properly examined. He said: "Kate and Gerry want to know what has been done, whether any mistakes were made, what lessons have been

learnt, but most importantly are there vital pieces of information still in these files that aren't being collated or compared and if there are vital links being missed. There have already been highlevel discussions between the Foreign Office and Portuguese officials to find a way of conducting such a review. "They have made representations to several home secretaries and while they have had reassurances, the situation has not really changed and that is why they feel now is the time to take their campaign up a gear." Mr Cameron's spokeswoman said: "The Prime Minister met Kate and Gerry McCann while he was leader of the opposition and he has followed their plight very closely. "He and the Home Secretary want to make sure the Government does all it can to help them." A Downing Street source added: "Our priority is that we find Madeleine McCann. Clearly this is a matter for the Portuguese authorities. "But we will continue to work with the Portuguese authorities."The official Portuguese inquiry into Madeleine's disappearance was formally shelved in July 2008, although private detectives employed by the McCanns have continued the search. Mrs McCann's book about how her daughter went missing has gone on sale and racked up large advance sales. Proceeds from the book, called simply Madeleine, will go towards their fund for finding her. The couple, from Rothley, Leicestershire, are giving a series of interviews to promote the work.

BBC Proms sell 376

Long reign: The

tickets a minute

place in history

Booking for the BBC Proms 2011 opened and 85,921 tickets were sold within the first 12 hours. This is a 7.39% increase compared with last year, when 80,000 tickets were allocated during the first day (which included one extra hour of booking). 39,348 individual orders for tickets were processed, compared with 36,406 in 2010, showing that more people than ever are being enticed by the broad range of concerts on offer at the Proms. 71,808 tickets were sold online, while the remainder were purchased by music-lovers who used telephone or postal booking, or went to the Royal Albert Hall in person. The introduction of a new, fairer and fully integrated live booking system in 2010 helped the BBC Proms secure record attendances across last year's festival. In total 313,000 tickets were sold

in 2010. Roger Wright, Director, BBC Proms and Controller, BBC Radio 3, says: "The Proms remain the world's largest music festival and the demand for tickets on the first day of booking has been extremely high. We're delighted that so many people have been able to get their tickets successfully and look forward to welcoming them to the Proms this summer. It's worth reminding people that there are still tickets available for the vast majority of events and also encourage them to try for returns, come and Prom on the day, or listen and watch on the BBC." All seated tickets for Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra (5 August) sold out within three hours, quickly followed by Verdi's Requiem (24 July). Seated tickets for Havergal Brian's gargantuan The Gothic Symphony (17 July) have also now sold out – though up to 1,400 £5 Promming tickets are released on the day of each

Jasper Hope, Chief Operating Officer, Royal Albert Hall, said: "After the incredible success of last year's launch of the Hall's online ticketing system for the BBC Proms, we are very pleased to see even more people this year having taken advantage of the

Her Majesty, who celebrates her Diamond Jubilee next year, acceded to the throne on February 6 1952 and has reigned for 59 years and 95 days plus 15 extra leap-year days, making a total of 21,645 days.

Ex-politician dies on Everest climb An 82-year-old Nepalese former foreign minister has died trying to become the oldest person to climb Mount Everest. Shailendra Kumar Upadhyaya died on Monday afternoon, hours after arriving at Camp One, an official said, adding that the cause of his death was not yet known. Upadhyaya had said he wanted to raise awareness

about the capabilities of elderly people by scaling the world's highest peak, which has claimed the lives of hundreds of mountaineers. The current record holder is Min Bahadur Sherchan, who scaled the mountain three years ago at the age of 76. Around 3,000 people have climbed Everest since Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first people to conquer the 8,848 metre (29,028 ft) peak in 1953. May is considered the best time for

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

climbing in the Nepal Himalayas and around half a dozen people, most of them Nepalese, have reached the top so far this year.

Hundreds more are on the mountain waiting for the right conditions to launch their attempt on the summit.

George III (1760-1820) was known for his "madness", which has since been diagnosed as porphyria. During his reign, Britain lost its US colonies. He was known as "Farmer George" for his love of agriculture and had 15 children with wife Queen Charlotte. Victoria, who was 18, when she became Queen, spent more than 63 years on the throne. The Queen will surpass Victoria's record in September 2015. The record can be worked out in a number of ways, with variations taking into account timings of George III's accession and death.

George Michael says: 'Tweet me about private life'

BT profit increase BT Group has posted a big rise in profits, mainly thanks to its roll out of 'super-fast' broadband services which picks up a new customer every 30 seconds. The telecommunications provider made £1.7bn in reported pre-tax profits in the year to March 31 - up 71% on the year before. Revenues fell 3% but savings of £1.1bn were made. The success is partly due to BT's roll-out of broadband services; it added 1.1m homes to its network over the year, the equivalent of a new connection every 30 seconds. BT's Global Services division saw its orders up 10% at £7.3bn and it also turned cash-flow positive a year ahead of plan. In the three months to March 31, revenue fell 6% to £5bn though pre-tax profit rose 21% to £610m.

BT has made big strides in tackling a major concern for investors and staff alike: the size of the group's pension deficit. Last year, it announced a 17year scheme to fund its £9bn deficit but said at the time that the pensions regulator had "substantial concerns." The services provider has now halved it down to £3.2bn, and a review into its deficit repayment scheme by the pension regulator has been put on hold. Some 30,000 new customers were added to its Vision broadband TV service, which offers Sky Sports 1 and 2, in its final quarter, bringing the total to nearly 600,000. BT said its roll-out is among the fastest in the world and by the end of this month it will be capable of providing the service for five million premises.Ian Livingston, BT chief executive, said: "These results show we are making progress, but we are well aware there remains a lot more to do."

Footy player sent off for

'dangerous haircut' An Aussie Rules footballer has been sent off during a match for having a "dangerous haircut". The umpire decided Nathan Van Someren's spiky mohawk hairstyle could injure another player, and ordered him off the field. The footballer, who plays for Simpson in Victoria, has had the hairstyle for three years told the Geelong Advertiser he couldn't believe umpire Don Wheadon's decision. "Before the game the umpire said that I could not play with my hair like that. He told me it was dangerous," Van Someren said. "We all thought that he was taking the mickey out of me. A few umpires have made jokes about my hair before, so I didn't think any more of it." Van Someren played in the first and second quarters of the match against Otway District, but in the third quarter the umpire decided to

Page 16

send him off. The 25-year-old player has refused to get his hair cut. "I don't want to, I want to keep it. I don't think I should have to. If someone has long hair it could flick someone in the eye. "Should they be made to cut it as well?" The player, who works as an electrician, coloured the tips of his mohawk to match his team. "I put yellow in it because we are the Tigers," he said. "Me girlfriend is a hairdresser and she like to play around with my hair a bit and I just like this style, I reckon it is pretty cool." His coach Leigh Walsh was fuming at the decision to send the player off. "You expect players to be sent off for hitting blokes or abusing umpires, not for their hairstyles,' he said. The Victorian Country Football League later said the umpire had misinterpreted the rules. The sending off did not affect the result - Van Someren's team still managed to win by 34 points.

George Michael refused to discuss his "recent troubles" at his first news conference since being jailed, saying anyone interested in his personal life should contact him through Twitter. The singer, who vowed three years ago he had quit live music, has announced a comeback album and tour but did not discuss his time in prison or whether he has given up drugs. Michael, sentenced to eight weeks in Pentonville Prison after admitting being under the influence of cannabis when his car crashed into a London branch of Snappy Snaps, touched only briefly on his highly publicised difficulties over the last year. "I felt very re-energised after my recent troubles", the 48year-old said when asked why he was returning to work. "I felt (a new album and tour) was really what I want to do as an artist."

Sky News asked the visibly svelte George, who has lost 15lbs, what had changed about his lifestyle to enable him to tour. For a moment it seemed he was about to touch on the obvious question of whether he has given up using drugs. "Er let me see...the obvious one ...." he told me but then checked himself, repeating once again personal questions must be sent via Twitter. "I am not going to go into this, it'll all be in the paper tomorrow. Obviously I like talking about myself but if it's not about the music - tweet me - it's normally funnier on that." Sky News did tweet him, but he did not respond. The former Wham star, said he wants to work with "gay and gay-friendly musicians" on his new album, explaining he felt press coverage of his misdemeanours had a negative impact on the gay community. "I have a serious problem with the fact that every time I make a big mistake, every time I would let myself

down, I felt definitely that I was letting young gay people down because of the homophobia that was thrown at me and the wording of that homophobia. "There are things about this next album where I am going to try and make up for some of the damage that I have inadvertently caused just by making myself so newsworthy... where there was no room or space to defend gay children from some of that language." Michael, who has sold over 100 million albums, revealed that he was struggling emotionally during his last tour in 2006 but had been helped by the support of his fans.

"(I was in) recovery from a very long period of grief and self abuse" he said, "although it never got that bad as I never missed a show. "To keep on the straight and narrow there is nothing better than doing work you love. "So I thought I'd tour sooner rather than later to keep driving me to take care of myself and appreciate what I have." The 47-date tour of Europe, entitled "Symphonica", starts in Prague in August but Michael confirmed fans will have to wait for his next album as he will be recording it while he tours.

Forecasters need new kit Greek protests

The Met Office needs more cash to pay for better technology so that it can improve its long-term forecasting, an MPs report suggests. The current seasonal predictions "do not provide a firm basis on which decision makers can act with confidence", the report from the House of Commons Transport Committee said. Transport Secretary Philip Hammond had put a £10m price tag on the additional computing power needed by the Met Office to provide more accurate decade-long forecasts, the committee said. "Ministers must look again at the resources available to the Met Office," committee chairman Louise Ellman said. "Given the huge cost of winter weather disruption to the economy - some £280m per day in transport disruption alone - the £10m suggested by Mr Hammond would be a small price to pay to improve the Met Office's long-range forecasting capability." Looking at the impact on transport of the ultra-cold and snowy December 2010

There have been fierce clashes in Athens after more than 20,000 people took to the streets of the capital to protest against a new wave of state spending cuts.

A Met Office satellite image on the weather last December

weather, the committee's report said more can - and should - be done to ensure UK transport networks continued to operate in severe winter weather. The recommendations suggest that Mr Hammond should appoint a "snow supremo" - a senior Department for Transport official to oversee snow plans at Heathrow and other airports. Plus, extra investment to be targeted on those parts of the travel

network which are the least resilient to bad weather. Airport operators should be allowed to reclaim the cost of looking after stranded passengers when airlines do not do so. Better online advice for individuals and communities about tackling problems arising from severe winter weather. And, a high profile campaign to be launched to increase the proportion of motorists taking precautions for driving in winter weather.

Riot police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse youths throwing stones and petrol bombs during a 24-hour general strike that brought most public services to a halt. In one incident, a group of 150 anarchists stormed into an Athens hospital and attacked three policemen who were called there after a protester was severely injured during the rioting. At least 25 other people were also hurt in the demonstration. The protest was sparked after Greek ministers ordered further tax hikes and pay and pensions cuts as they seek to keep the country's sinking economy above water. Their plans aim to save 26bn euros over three years, but unions and some economists are questioning the effectiveness of further spending cuts when economic growth is so badly needed. Greece is now widely expected to need more financial help, beyond the £95bn bailout that saved it from bankruptcy last year.

MARIANO E ZUNINO SIRI Understanding the Law Email: marianozunino@canarianweekly.com

Joint assets of marriage IT is sometimes difficult to understand the meanings of the phrases “Bienes Gananciales”, “Sociedad de Gananciales”, “Matrimonio en Régimen de Gananciales” and opposing the “Matrimonio en Régimen de Separación de Bienes”. The word “bien”, as a noun, mean good (“Bienes” means “Goods” which would be the assets). Assets could be “movables” or “immovables”, “fungible” or “not fungible”, “tangible” or “intangible”, etc. (see below a small list). “Gananciales” would be the adjective. This could be translated as Community of Wealth or Community of Assets. This is a marriage community in which the assets belongs in common to the two spouses,

and at the time of its dissolution (such as divorce) is divisible between them in equal shares. It is confined to their future acquisition during the life of the marriage and the fruits (profits).When husband and wife join their lives in “Sociedad de Gananciales”, it means that everything (properties bought during marriage and profits) would belong to the “company” formed by the spouses. At the time of dissolution, each one would receive half of the “company”. The word “ganancial” comes from “ganancia” or “ganar”, which would mean profit or earnings. According to this, all the profits obtained by one of the spouses would belong the “company” (comunidad de gananciales) formed by the

two spouses. Anyhow, not only the profits are “gananciales” but all assets acquired during marriage. The opposite system is “Separación de Bienes”, which would be “Separation of Wealth”. In this case, each person (spouse) owns his/her own assets during marriage. There are no common properties and normally, this way is agreed by the spouses before marrying or signing an agreement before Notary Public. Bear in mind that goods received by inheritance are not included in these groups. The law says that all the assets are presumably “gananciales” (common”), which means that if one of the spouses wants to prove that they are not, he/she should prove that.

I include a small list to clarify the meaning of some words. I hope it helps.

BIENES: goods, assets, resources. BIENES RAÍCES: real estate BIENES MUEBLES: movables, bona mobilia BIENES INMUEBLES: immovables, real estate, bona inmobilia BIENES MATERIALES: possessions IMPUESTO SOBRE BIENES INMUEBLES: property tax, rates (IBI) INMOBILIARIA: estate agent, real estate professional BIENES COMUNES: common assets BIENES PROPIOS: own property Mariano Zunino Siri is a lawyer registered in Tenerife Bar Association since 1991.

adult run is 3.5km, and 1.5km for children. Please contact the refuge if you would like to enter. The cost is five euros for both runner and dog, and this includes drinks. The event will be followed by the usual activities, and there’s also a foam party to round off the day, which is always a huge hit with the children.

Britain’s Got Talent 8pm ITV Ant and Dec present more auditions from the latest series of Britain’s most varied talent show. Each week, a new crop of hopeful performers line up to strut their stuff on the Britain’s Got Talent stage in front of a live audience and judges Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff. Acts can be of any age and can show off any kind of talent – previous series have featured

singers, dancers, musicians, magicians and even a professional farter! The performers are battling it out to win a cash prize and the opportunity to appear on the star-studded bill at this year’s Royal Variety Performance in front of royalty and millions of viewers worldwide. To stay in the running, the hopefuls must ensure that they catch the panel’s eye – so expect some incredible individuals, hilari-

ous moments and jaw-dropping performances. Plus watch out for the return of Simon Cowell at the live stages. Past contestants have gone on to great things – Susan Boyle and Paul Potts are both multi-million-selling recording artists, while dance troupe Diversity have performed all over the country and even launched their own fitness DVD. Will this year’s show uncover a brand new star?

FA Cup Final: Manchester City v Stoke City 1pm - ITV This year’s FA Cup Final pits the country’s wealthiest club – Manchester City – against more modest Premier League outfit Stoke City, who have never reached the final before. Manchester City fans may think they have a great chance to bring home the Cup for the first time since 1969, but manager Roberto Mancini knows that Stoke's long-ball tactics and physical presence will be a tough challenge. Mancini has already said that the final

Page 24

will be a more difficult match than their epic semifinal win over Manchester United, though the bookmakers will certainly have them as favourites to win the first trophy for their Abu Dhabi-based owners. Manchester City’s squad features established internationals such as Carlos Tevez, David Silva, Nigel de Jong, Yaya Toure, Mario Balotelli and England’s number one goalkeeper Joe Hart. Stoke’sline-up does not feature any big stars, but

they do have Rory Delap, whose long throws regularly cause panic in the opposition penalty area. Manager Tony Pulis is renowned for getting his players fired up for the big occasion – they pulverised Bolton 5-0 in the semi-final. Manchester City's quest to win their first silverware in 35 years now focuses on the result at Wembley. Their fans will expect their multi-millionpound team to win through, but can Stoke cause another big upset?

It’s Fergie time! SO, it’s exactly two weeks since the big Royal wedding and, like many others, I was getting a bit fed up with the run-up, which seemed to last forever. Obviously, we can only blame the media, who were hyping it up and I'm sure William and Kate could not wait to get the day over with. You could not turn the television on without it being mentioned. But you know what? On the day itself, I enjoyed the splendour and spectacle, along with the two billion others watching around the world. If I’m being honest, I could not see the big deal about the dress, or the fact that so many celebrities were invited. But I did feel a huge grin coming across my face as we watched the couple drive out of Buckingham Palace in the Aston Martin. That will be next to the kiss as one of the most iconic pictures for years to come. So now it has all died down and we, along with William and Kate, can get on with our lives. But not if you are Sarah Ferguson, and I am right on her side. This week she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show in the States, going through the “heartache” that is her life. Before I get into this, let me say one thing about Oprah: this woman is the worst, most boring broadcaster in history. If you watch her carefully, she never listens to her guests, and all we get from her is a question and never a follow-up to the answer given. And she panders to the horrible Bible Belt of middle America, who are the people who matter where politics, family morals and, most importantly, television viewing figures matter. If you don’t make it with this lot, you may as well give up. She has done shows based on morals for years. Fergie selling “time” with Prince Andrew in that hotel room is seriously unforgivable. So what does Moral Queen Oprah do? Gives Sarah Ferguson her own chat show! It’s beyond comprehension!

Right, that’s my Oprah rant over. So Sarah Ferguson was asked if she felt hurt about not being invited to the wedding. She paused, not in a dramatic way at all, and there seemed to be genuine hurt in her face when she answered: “It was difficult.” I am not a fan of this woman at all, believe me, but even I asked myself on royal wedding day: “Why is Fergie not there?” We have not been given an answer from the Royals press people, but it has slipped out from certain people that she is simply not one of the family! What a load of rubbish. How can she not be one of the family? She is the mother of the two daughters she had with Prince Andrew. Whatever her faults, and the scandals she created herself, she had every right to be there. How many weddings have we been to, or been personally involved in with guests you would rather not have, but still know it’s the right thing to invite them? We are supposed to believe

that the Royal Family are getting into gear and catching up with modern society, so they should have done the right thing. And for anyone who believes family comes first, you are wrong. Take a look at the guest list: Elton John (and boyfriend/husband David Furnish), David and Posh Beckham, Sting - the celebrity list goes on and on. I have studied the Royal bloodline and even thought of sending them all to the Jeremy Kyle Show for DNA testing. But I know these people are NOT family. So it does not hold up. Who was and was not invited is really no big deal at the end of the day. None of our business actually, but there is no doubt it must hurt poor old Fergie. I can leave her with one thing that should make her happy, though. If they were my daughters, and after seeing the hats they had on their heads, I wouldn’t have turned up!

EastEnders 7.30-8.00pm BBC ONE A terrified Ronnie steels herself as she finally comes face-to-face with a vengeful Kat, in the latest action from Walford. Elsewhere, Ian's shock announcement leads Jane to make a heartbreaking decision, while Masood tries desperately to salvage his relationship with Zainab in the wake of recent revelations. Coming shortly, it won't be long before Eddie Moon, played by David Essex, arrives in Walford and following hot on his heels will be his two sons, Anthony and Tyler. Youngest son Tyler Moon arrives in Albert Square looking for his dad with older brother Anthony Moon also stepping onto the Square shortly after. Tylers is a bloke's bloke; he

lives for the weekend, loves a good laugh with his mates and often ends up in trouble, particularly where the ladies are concerned. Anthony is similar to Tyler but at the same time very different. Where Tyler is quick to use his fists to sort things out, Anthony will rely on his brains and natural wit to find a more sensitive solution to any conflict. The two new Moons are a couple of likely lads who are more than likely to cause a stir in Albert Square. Tyler Moon will be played by Tony Discipline and Anthony Moon by Matt Lapinskas. Tony says: "It's really exciting to be able to work on a show that you have grown up watching and have followed your whole life, I am very

grateful to be given this opportunity and am looking forward to working on the show and becoming an EastEnder!" Matt says: "I'm absolutely over the moon! It's has been my lifetime ambition to be on EastEnders, I have watched it growing up with my Nan who is a big fan. I'm so pleased to get my first TV role, I just didn't believe it would be so big. I've met some of the cast I will be working with who were very friendly and welcoming and I can't wait to start filming." Bryan Kirkwood, Executive Producer of EastEnders, says: "Both Tony and Matt are fabulous additions to the show. Headed up by David Essex, the Moon clan are on their way to becoming an established family in the Square."

Inside The Human Body Ep 3/4 9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE The human brain is the most sophisticated organism in the universe and, thanks to brain imaging techniques, we now know that it takes 20 years to mature. In this third episode of Inside The Human Body Michael Mosley traces humans' development from birth to adulthood. He sees how new-born Phoebe makes sense of the world and how one-yearold Angelina copes with just half a functioning brain. The programme discovers how Moken sea gypsy children train themselves to see clearly underwater, and meets a Vietnamese girl who speaks 11 differ-

ent languages. Michael shows his own teenagers' remarkable scans, which reveal just how many brain connections we lose between the ages of 11 and 20. This remodelling is

SUE MCDONALD Sit down - take a good Common Sense Furnishings Email: sue.mcdonald@canarianweekly.com

A king-size bed … AT last, all the fuss over the royal wedding is dying down. There were lots of famous people there I had previously seen in glossy magazines. And one I had even seen on a stamp! So I thought that as I was married for 10 years, and have now been divorced for nearly another 10, I consider myself to be a bit of an expert and could give the happy couple some advice: To her: always remember where you have hidden the things he has left lying around, so that you can teach him not to leave things lying around. To him: put the bins out. As a famous sports company says: “Just do it.” And never make the mistake of thinking that she doesn’t want a present, just because she said she didn’t want a present. She does. And not something from the petrol station, either. Being the royal couple, they should obviouslyinvest in a kingsize bed. And that brings me nicely on to the subject of furniture which is, after all, what I am supposed to be talking about! I’ve had several people in this week who have bought preowned apartments. They wanted to buy a few new things to update them and bring them up to standard, and didn’t really know where to start. Obviously, for someone who doesn’t know the Island and doesn’t speak Spanish, the prospect can be quite daunting. But I was pleased to tell them

look at this Prestige Garden Furniture! HERE in Tenerife you tend to spend more time outside than in. So why not treat yourself to a new outdoor furniture set. The Prestige Garden Furniture Company are pleased to announce the arrival of a new range of Kettler and Royal Garden furniture at hugely-discounted prices. Also in stock are a variety of models from the new 2011 ranges featuring quality brands Skyline Design and Kettal. The name Prestige was usually associated with Sun Blinds, but in the last seven years the showroom has

that we offer a complete service, in which we can go to the house and advise on how to upgrade the property within a specified budget. After all, if you buy an apartment furnished, but the finished article is not to your taste, you can usually utilise some of it. In this case, the beds were in good condition, but the couple preferred new mattresses. We were, however, able to keep the bases. In the lounge, we kept the corner and coffee tables, but provided a more modern TV table. The existing roller blinds were in reasonable condition but a bit cold, so we added dress curtains to soften the whole effect without spending a great deal of money. Some modern abstract pictures, and some coloured scatter cushions - and the property had a complete facelift. We also provided a few kitchen and linen items the couple needed to make up their inventory, and their apartment was ready for rental - within budget, within timescale, and without

any hassle for them as they had to deal with one supplier only: Deco Nuevo. This service, and our interiordesign service, is free of charge and without obligation. Most of our clients have a good idea of what they want to achieve, and we are able to help with some fresh perspective, and with the knowledge of what is available and what works here in Tenerife. In addition, there are factors that people may not have taken into consideration, such as the use of sun curtains to reduce heat and fading, the installation of ceiling fans, and the use of fabrics which are easy to maintain in a rental situation. We also have space-saving furniture for smaller properties, such as extendable dining tables, and money-saving tips which will benefit all. So, if you have bought a furnished property and would like to make a few changes, or just want someone to give you a few ideas without any obligation, call in to Deco Nuevo, situated next to Ofipapel in Los Cristianos.

also housed a large selection of quality garden furniture, parasols and cushions. The company have on display a vast selection of various types of sun blinds, interior blinds, plus security shutters and security grilles. They also offer outdoor furniture from the ranges of MWH, Expormim, Evolutif, Guzman Naranjo, Hugonet, Triconfort, Bizzotto and many more, with constantly-changing stock. For every item in the showroom, there are variations in colour and size available. If you don’t like what you see, there are brochures to browse through so that you can order exactly to your requirements. Every item comes with a guarantee and is delivered and assembled free of charge by our friendly staff. You’ll find Prestige situated in Armeñime, Adeje, opposite the Shell Garage, just along the road from Tenerife Pearl. The showroom is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. Give them a call on 922 740 888 for more information.

Microsoft snaps up Skype Microsoft has bought internet phone firm Skype for £5bn.

The deal, one of the biggest in Microsoft's history, gives it a foothold in the internet market, where it has lagged behind rivals Google and Apple.

"Skype is a phenomenal service that is loved by millions of people around the world," Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer said in a statement. "Together we will create the future of real-time communications so people can easily stay connected to family, friends, clients and colleagues anywhere in the world. Microsoft said Skype will become a new business division within Microsoft with Skype CEO Tony Bates assuming the title of president of the Microsoft Skype Division, reporting directly to Ballmer. Microsoft has struggled to hold an internet presence in recent years. It invested heavily in marketing and improving the technology of its Bing search engine. While it has made some market share gains over the past year, Google has dominated the market with a 65% share of the search engine market. One of the world's most popular online programmes, Luxembourg-based Skype has 663 million global users. In August last year it announced plans for a share flotation, but this was subsequently put on hold. Internet auction house eBay bought Skype for $2.6bn in 2006, before selling 70% of it in 2009 for $2bn.

Bumper English crop The warm spring is producing the biggest and best quality English strawberries in about two decades. Growers say the heat wave has boosted the sugar levels to make them sweeter and juicier than normal. Sally Haines from Hillers Farm in Alcester, Warwickshire said on early indications their strawberry yield had doubled compared to previous years. The consistently good weather had brought the season forward by a couple of weeks. "Sales have been phenome-

nal,” said Sally who also runs a farm shop. "We have known nothing like this in recent years. It is not just that we have a bumper crop, the quality of the strawberries is just so good." And Tesco has cut its foreign imports of strawberries by 50%. Their strawberry buyer Paul Jones said: "The unexpected great weather means an abundance of top quality, sweeter than normal English strawberries - of the standard normally associated with Wimbledon fortnight. "As the quality is so high, we have taken far more of the English crop than we usually

do at this time of year. From this week we will be predominantly selling English strawberries and the need not to import Spanish imports allows us to keep the price down." He added that since the start of the English strawberry season two weeks ago Tesco had sold 50% more home-grown strawberries than it did in the same period last year. It has not been such good news for home grown wheat, salads and vegetables, which suffer in dry conditions. Strawberries rely on artificial irrigation and have flourished as a result.

Grow your own – strawberries Strawberries in my experience are best grown by purchasing small plants; you can then extend your strawberry patch by making further plants from the runners that the plants produce. Now just because you’ve been used to seeing strawberries in neat rows, field upon field, this doesn’t mean they need a vast space. They grow exceptionally well either in a pot, tub or ideally in a hanging basket. Try to buy plants that are disease resistant, your plants should be planted as soon as you can after you’ve purchased them. Space them about 12in apart or if in a basket just put a few in, perhaps five and three through the holes of the basket.

Love your garden The nation’s favourite gardener Alan Titchmarsh, is set to bring his unique horticultural skills to ITV1 for the first time - in a new peak time gardening series. Love Your Garden will be a series of eight, thirty minute programes. We will see writer, broadcaster and TV personality, Alan Titchmarsh travel the country with a team of esteemed experts to find some of Britain’s most beautiful domestic gar-

dens and show viewers how to recreate the look themselves - with minimum fuss. Rather than sprawling country estates or celebrated public gardens, Alan will focus on the gardens of Britons who have turned their plots into magical outdoor living spaces. And even if you’re not a gardener and have a tiny space, Alan will demonstrate how to make it magical too.

meet the gardeners who are passionate about bringing wildlife to their garden and Laetitia Maklouf will demonstrate how to transform the tiniest of spaces from elegant conservatories to beautiful window boxes. Featuring the most beautiful domestic gardens in the country and celebrating the passionate people behind them, Love Your Garden will celebrate Britain as a nation of gardeners and inform and inspire us on how to redesign our own outdoor space. Alan Titchmarsh said: 'I'm really looking forward to showing folk that they can achieve extraordinary things in even the smallest and most ordinary garden. Love Your Garden will hopefully inspire even the most unconfident and inexperienced garden owners to have a go and brighten up their life - and their plate!'

Firm them in the crown of the plant, middle, should just be level with the soil. Water them immediately, they may regress slightly for a few days, but then soon should pick up. Once they flower you will then see green fruits forming, water well and let the sun ripen them. All that’s left then to do is taste them!

ITV Director of Factual and Daytime, Alison Sharman said: "I am very excited that Alan is bringing accessible and innovative gardening to the ITV1 audience with his bucketfuls of experience and incredible passion". Love Your Garden is a Spun

Gold Production for ITV1. It was commissioned by Director of Factual and Daytime Alison Sharman and Commissioning Editor Diana Howie. The Executive Producers for Spun Gold are Matt Young and the Series Producer is Nicky Taylor.

Ageing and exercise

Age….it’s a number

WE don’t stop exercising because we get old; we get old because we stop exercising.

I GET to hear these words so many times in the salon: “I can’t have that because I’m 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 something.” So what! Let’s not talk about trying to make you look stupid, but let’s get one thing straight: Who wants to look her age? I recently cut an 80year-old woman’s hair who was so stuck in her ways with long, blonde, curly hair, that she would not even hear of having something different - 25 years with the same style. Hello, would you wear the same dress for 25 years, day-in, day-out? Finally, she gave in and No, I didn’t try to make her look like a 20-year-old. But we knocked a few years off, and her face said it all afterwards. This applies, no matter what your age, so don’t get stuck in a rut because it’s so ageing. Try something new! TRY to imagine the above model with a natural, light-brown colour. Now look at how this colour makes the style. A simple colour can change “dull” to “wow” in a few hours in the salon. Now check out your colour in the mirror.

Is it adding to your cut, or making you look dowdy and flat? Ask advice from your stylist as to what effective changes you could make. FED up with your hair looking dull and needing some texture? We checked out the new “Ice Wax” spray from Selective. 10/10 separates and gives gloss and movement to texturised cuts, even on smooth hair. It flattens down those frizzes and is easy to apply as it’s in spray form, so no more greasy hands.

SORRY folks, but my circle of shame goes to Kate. Her weddingday hair style was an absolute disgrace to my profession. It was dull, flat, boring … shall I go on? She had two top stylists working on her hair, and this was the result. I expected so much more. I’ll shut up now!

Aging is inevitable, but there is no reason we have to age gracefully! Although my training routine has changed significantly over the years to reflect different goals, I still train hard and often - and I expect to continue for many years. Exercise is often thought of as being the reserve of the younger generation, but the reality is that those “young people” don’t need exercise half as much as the older generation. In our youth, our bodies naturally peak in terms of strength, fitness and body composition but, as we age, those characteristics decline quite rapidly and it’s then that exercise comes into its own for slowing the aging process and promoting a long and vital life. The aging process is associated with a number of medical conditions that can be reduced or offset through regular exercise. These include:

Coronary Heart Disease Hypertension Diabetes type II Obesity Osteoarthritis Rheumatoid arthritis Osteoporosis Age-related asthma Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Regular exercisers are significantly less likely to suffer from these conditions, and those who do tend to have less severe symptoms.

In addition to medical conditions, we naturally lose strength, aerobic fitness and flexibility as we age and, ultimately, find it difficult to perform tasks of daily living. However, all is not lost because as little as three, 20-minute exercise sessions a week can all but put the brakes on the aging process and, in some cases, start turning back the clock. Factors to consider regarding exercise for older adults include: Train for function rather than aesthetics. Choose exercises that are representative of everyday activities, such as appropriate variations of the squat, dead lift and overhead press, which are movements we perform every day Select exercises which are sympathetic to your joints! If it hurts, the chances are it’s not doing you any good. For example, low impact cardio is a good choice (walking, cycling, rowing, swimming etc) if you have pain in your knees Ensure the risk of suffering a fall is minimal, especially for those who are at risk of osteoporosis

Emphasise flexibility and mobility work to retain range of movement in major joints Take your time warming up because older joints are often stiffer and take longer to get moving Include resistance training to minimise muscle/strength loss and maximise bone mass Consider your medical history and adjust exercise routine accordingly. Bear in mind, some medications can affect your ability to perform exercise. If in doubt, seek professional advice as to the suitability of exercises in relation to your medical conditions/medication Don’t worry if some days seem harder than others. It’s okay to have an easy day, or even take a break from exercise, if you aren’t feeling 100%. A day off today may mean a better workout tomorrow Making the time to exercise, or continuing with your current exercise routine, will pay huge dividends in the long run. We’re living longer than ever because of medical interventions, so let’s make sure we live better, too!

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

Breast is best for well-behaved kids BABIES who are breast-fed for several months develop fewer behavioural problems in early childhood than those who are bottle-fed. A study conducted by various English university, which involved around 10,000 mothers and their babies, found that breast-feeding for at least four months lowered the risk of problems in children aged five by a third. Researchers say the findings add to a wealth of existing evidence on the benefits of breast-feeding, and they add that children raised on the bottled-milk formula tended to show more signs of anxiety, hyperactivity or lying and stealing. “We’re not necessarily talking about tearaway, unmanageable five-year-old kids,” said Oxford University’s Maria Quigley, who led the research. “It might be unusual anxiousness, restlessness, inability to socialise with other children or play fully in groups.” Scientists said the results could be explained either by the fatty acids in breast milk, which aid brain development, or the bonding between mother and child, which may affect learned behaviour. Researchers from the Universities of Oxford, Essex, York and University College London analysed data from a survey of 10,037 infants born in the UK between 2000 and 2001, who took part in the wider Millennium Cohort Study. Mothers were asked to assess the behaviour of their children by the age of five, giv-

ing scores for different behaviours, such as clinginess and restlessness. Raw figures showed that only 6% of breastfed children were given abnormal scores indicating behavioural problems, compared with 16% of formula-fed children. The study also revealed that mums who breast-fed tended to be older, better-educated and from a higher socio-economic background than those who didn’t. Researchers, therefore, adjusted the figures to take those factors into account, concluding that there was a 30% greater risk of behavioural problems among formula-fed children.

“Our results provide even more evidence for the benefits of breastfeeding,” said Quigley. “Mothers who want to breast-feed should be given all the support they need.” Janet Fyle, from the Royal College of Midwives, agreed that the study backed evidence that breast-feeding was best for babies. But she warned against victimising women who chose not to. “We need to be careful to keep a balance when interpreting the results, so that we do not send a negative message to mothers that they have failed, or make them feel guilty because they bottle-fed their babies,” she stressed.

Pain-killers could lead to second heart attack

Women’s weighty cost of looking sharp on holiday

POPULAR pain-killers such as ibuprofen is claimed to increase the chances of people suffering a second heart attack. It relates to non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and this latest research reflects previous studies on the risks. In January, experts found that NSAIDs increased the chances of heart attacks and strokes when taken at high doses, or over the long term. The new study, by Copenhagen University, showed that NSAIDs were associated with a 45% increased risk of death or recurrent heart attack inside as little as one week of treatment.

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

The increased risk persisted, at 55%, during a three-month course of treatment. Of the 83,697 heart-attack survivors who were aged 68 on average, 42.3% had been given at least one prescription for an NSAID following their attack. And the most common NSAIDs given on prescription were ibuprofen (23% of the group) and diclofenac (13.4%). Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, said: “We have known for some time that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs should be used with caution in patients with heart disease. “This study suggests that even short-term use appears to carry a significant risk in patients who have had a heart attack."

WOMEN who diet before a holiday aim to lose an average of more than half-a-stone in weight to look and feel good. And as many as 67% of women polled in a survey by travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk said they went on diets before taking a break. The average amount they aimed to lose was 8lb, with only 9% of the 1,614 females polled saying they did not take any steps to improve or change their appearance before a break. The poll, involving women over 21 who had been on holiday in the last two years, found 48% had used fake tan or a sunbed before going away. Also, 39% had their hair cut or dyed, 24% went in for waxing and 22% had a manicure. Those who went in for pre-holiday prepa-

rations of this kind spent an average of £162 on treatments. Sunshine.co.uk cofounder Chris Brown said: “I was quite surprised that around two-thirds of women diet before going away. “After all, holidays are all about indulgence, and you normally put a bit of weight on during your break anyway. With this in mind, it could be argued that

the dieting is probably best left until after the holiday” He added: “Getting bronzed and beautified is obviously a very important part of the pre-holiday process for women to feel confident before they get away. “And the fact that only 9% said they didn’t do anything at all before they went away just goes further to strengthen this point.”

El Bulli wows Hollywood El Bulli is undoubtedly the most controversial and experimental restaurant in the world that annually receives up to 1,000,000 reservation requests a year, where only 8,000 lucky ones get a table. Ferran Adrià – the chef who earned El Bulli it's worldwide fame is one of the most famous people in Spain and has been acclaimed to be the best chef in the world. So much so that it looks like El

Bulli is going to Hollywood. Not in the true sense as a restaurant but the inspiration for a film, with a reported budget of 40 million dollars. At a Spanish press conference this week it is reported that a contract is on the table (excuse the pun) for a film inspired by Lisa Abend's 'The Sorcerer's Apprentices', but in food terms so it’s a season in the kitchen at Ferran Adrià's famous restaurant The life of four apprentices at Ferran Adrià’s world famous restaurant El Bulli could be made into a Hollywood film, the top Catalan chef has announced this himself. He made the announcement at the presentation in Barcelona

last Tuesday of the book by the US journalist Lisa Abend, ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentices’ – ‘Los aprendices de hechicero’, which goes behind the scenes at El Bulli to unveil his system of apprentices.

Page 42

A team of more than 30 aspiring cooks work there for free to be trained by the maestro chef. Adrià said he is on the point of signing the contract for the film, which will be

inspired by Lisa Abend’s stories of his restaurant. If it goes ahead, it will be filmed in El Bulli itself while the restaurant is open to the public, with actors playing some of the roles, mixed with

El Bulli’s own staff. Adrià himself will not be appearing, but will be played by an actor. If El Bulli is made into a Hollywood blockbuster it will open up a whole new genre of reality gastronomy in film!

Happy birthday Spam - it’s still a tasty treat!

SPAM, that wartime staple, celebrated the 74th year of its introduction to the table on Wednesday.. It was, and still is, mostloved and most-hated meat product of all, on both sides of the pond, yet it is still viewed worldwide as nutri-

tious, inexpensive and tasty. The English could not have survived without Spam, claimed former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who once recalled the war years and a Christmas holiday when a tin of a spam saved the day! And, of course, the Monty Python team brought it to

the fore again with their Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam ditty, followed by the Spamalot film, which was a huge hit everywhere. In fact, Spam has numerous websites, recipe contests and festivals in the US, particularly, and there is even a catalogue of merchandise such as T-shirts, neck ties and jewellery. The name, now more commonly associated with email junk, originated at a New Year’s Eve party in 1937 in the States when it was suggested by Kenneth Daigneau, brother of a food company executive. There was a contest on to find a memorable brand

name for its canned meat product, which had the mundane label of Hormel Spiced Ham. Many food snobs look down their collective noses at Spam. Not so in Hawaii, where more of the canned meat is consumed than any other place in the world, consuming more than four million cans every year; which is more than four cans for every Hawaiian. If you want to make a sensational impression in South Korea, just bring forth a can or two of Spam. The Koreans consider a gift of Spam as prized as jewellery or a case of vintage Champagne. And, believe it or not, no less a luminary than Nikita Khrushchev, leader of the former Soviet Union after World War II, paid homage to Spam in his book, Khrushchev Remembers. “We had lost our most fertile, food-bearing lands, and without Spam our armies would have starved to death,” he wrote. Last year, 17 million cans of Spam were exported, and in Korea, Denmark, Japan and the Philippines, there are plants still manufacturing it. In all, a staggering 50 million cans of Spam are produced internationally every year.

Ryanair and easyJet will carry on hiking! DESPITE an Office of Fair Trading investigation into unreasonable debit and credit-card fees, easyJet has increased its booking charges. The budget airline has raised booking fees by at least 45%, in the face of widespread criticism, imposing an £8 charge on passengers paying for their flights using a debit card. The £2.50 hike is the company’s third increase in seven months. The charge levied on credit-card users is now £12.95, or £8 plus 2.5% of the flight cost, whichever is higher. Consumer watchdogs have criticised the rises, saying they believe both easyJet and Ryanair are increasing charges as a way of keeping their headline fares low. Ryanair upped its credit card charge by £1 per person per flight, to £6 in March.

Consumer magazine Which? made a complaint to the OFT in March, claiming companies were charging many times the actual cost of booking. Which? says the average debit card transaction costs a company 20p, and credit card transactions are no more than 2.5% of the total cost. Ryanair and easyJet waive charges for passengers who use partner cards - companies who have an agreement with the airlines, including Visa Electron and Mastercard Prepaid. An easyJet spokesman said: “EasyJet’s booking-fee remains one of the cheapest across the airline industry. “Other airlines charge per person per flight, so that a family of four would be charged £48 rather than the £8 they would pay on easyJet. And the airline’s fares remain extremely competitive with all rivals.” An OFT investigation into credit-card charges will be published next month.

No contest! Royal newlyweds honeymoon in the Seychelles IT is not too difficult to see why Prince William and Princess Kate have settled on the Seychelles for their delayed honeymoon, following their royal wedding two weeks ago.

Page 44

The collection of 115 islands and inlets are described as “unique, with an incomparable nature, breath-taking lagoons and endless sandy beaches.” The newlyweds’ particular holiday island is a closely-guarded secret - they were transported there in a royal helicopter and are said to be staying in a £4,000-a-night villa. As you do! The Seychelles, once the

domain of the rich and famous, are no longer an unknown holiday paradise. We’ve all heard of the islands, and they often play host to many TV adverts, featuring such items as Bacardi Rum and Bounty bars, for example.. Nevertheless, the islands, which are virtually unspoiled and lie south of the equator, are still a magnet for many people seeking to unwind. Everywhere, there are palm trees wavering in the breeze, with silver, glittering shores, being lapped by crystal-clear, turquoise water, completing the picture. And, just like our own Island, the sun invariably shines The 115 islands and inlets in the Seychelles are scattered across the width of the Indian Ocean like a set of beads, and each one is a small Garden of Eden, with eight of them inhabited constantly. Mahé, the largest of the group, is where most people live, and is home to the lively capital of Victoria. But the indi-

viduality of every other island, complete with lonesome coasts and privacy, has enabled them to be developed as exclusive resorts. They are now firmly established, connecting luxury with an authentic nature experience - especially for those who seek romantic adventures like Robinson Crusoe! Most of the Seychelles population originate from Africa, yet there is also a large influence of European, Indian, Malagasy and Chinese there. Over their 200-plus years of colonial history, the islands have developed a mixed Creole population, whose multiplicity is also evident in the typical island kitchen. And the benefit of rice, curry, fish, coconuts and bananas is available in all imaginable variations. Each island comprises powerful, granite rock in bizarre shapes and forms, elegant ponds, sumptuousness jungles, mellow hills and wonder-

ful, sandy bays. Breathtaking views overlooking the turquoise lagoons, snowwhite beaches and impressive views of the flora and fauna complete the perfect holiday picture. Temperatures vary between 24-30 degrees centigrade and only the mountain regions on the granite islands have rainfall to measure. And an efficient transport system gives visitors the opportunity to travel from one place to another. There are more than 75 plant types, 12 species of amphibians, 11 varieties of birds and over 1,000 invertebrates. A special highlight is the presence of three sorts of giant turtle - on the Aldabra-Atoll, where the world’s largest colony of giant land turtles is home to over 150.000 specimens. The Koko Dmer is also a sight to behold - a miracle of nature even because the socalled sea coconut weighs up to 20 kg. The underwater world of the Seychelles is also a

true paradise. It boasts a diverse range of coral reefs and large swarms of tropical reef fish – idyllic for divers and snorkelers. Coral reefs are surrounded by a rich collection of sea-life and, in fact, the most diverse range of colourful fish there cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The Seychelles is particularly ideal for angling fanatics. Along the coast of the capital island, several boat-rental companies have been established, enabling guests to enjoy all-day trips to the richest fishing grounds. An outstanding fishing district is the area around Bird and Denis Island, where the seabottom drops to more than 1800m. And for those who enjoy fly-fishing, Alphonse, Desroches and North Island are ideal. But whatever activities you opt for while holidaying in the Seychelles, you are guaranteed to come away with a lifetime of happy memories.

New Jaguar supercar spells ‘Green’ for go! JAGUAR are building a new supercar in every sense of the word. It’s a mean, green hybrid machine, capable of 060mph in less than three seconds. The environmentally-friendly £900,000 C-X75 - the company’s most expensive motor ever - will have a 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors to provide exceptionally low fuel consumption. In addition, its carbon-dioxide emissions will be as low as those from a Toyota Prius family car. But it will still pack

a punch, hitting a top speed of more than 200mph. The range using the silent electric motors only is just 30 miles, although the total range on combined electric and petrol power will be around 10 times that distance. And Jaguar chiefs say claims for the two-seater’s performance-proved “green” does not spell “boring”. Just 250 will be built between 2013 and 2015 as part of collaboration with the Williams Formula 1 team, combining race engineering with cutting-edge, environmental technology. The company believe the four-wheel-drive supercar will put it on a par

with Ferrari, McLaren and Lamborghini, while its technology will be used in future luxury models, including a successor to the legendary EType. Design chief Ian Callum said: “This will be the finestlooking and most innovative Jaguar. Even in the world of supercars, we can still produce the most beautiful.” This supercar is the centrepiece of Jaguar’s ambitious plans for a £5billion-a-year expansion over five years, which will create hundreds of jobs at the UK luxury car-

maker. The plans also include 40 new models and variants, and a new £750million engine plant, expected to be in Britain. Expansion into China and India is also on the cards, which could see at least a doubling of sales from the current 50,000 vehicles a year. The CX75 supercar aims to compete with the likes of Ferrari, McLaren and Lamborghini. The technology will trickle down to future cars, including a small motor and a 21st Century sports-car successor to the legendary E-Type roadster.

And not forgetting, course, limousines like the XJ used by Prime Minister David Cameron. Jaguar say the production of the C-X75 alone will create more than 100 highly-skilled jobs in the UK, and they have already announced plans to recruit 1,000 engineers and 1,500 more staff. The petrolelectric hybrid, four-wheel drive supercar will be powered by a 1.6 litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, linked to two powerful electric motors. Electric charge will be stored in giant batteries, which will

be re-charged while in motion from energy released during braking. A plug-in option will allow the car to be charged from domestic mains to run on electric power only. Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Brand Director, said: “People expect Jaguar to be innovators, and that is when we are at our best. There is a clear business case for this exclusive halo model. “No other vehicle will better signify Jaguar’s renewed confidence and excellence in technological innovation than this.”

Ace of a twist for rockers’ paradise ONE of my old chums in England, who has always ridden motorbikes, often used to regale me with colourful tales about London’s Ace Cafe. It was a focal point for ton-up kids in the Fifties, and “rockers” in the next decade, and he used to make the occasional pilgrimage down to the iconic café, which attracted bikers and car nuts from all over the country. It was also a stopping-off place for pop groups heading back North after a gig in London, or those returning South from the Midlands or North. Stars like Britain’s Johnny Kid (and The Pirates) and America’s great biker-pop star Gene Vincent were said to have been seen there. In truth, it was nothing out of the ordinary, starting life in 1938 as a simple but spacious roadside pullin on the North Circular in NorthWest London, at Willesden, near Hendon. But it grew and grew to become a magnet for the twowheeled speed merchants, who loved nothing better than hitting a ton on the nearby one-mile straight stretch of road. It became a tyre depot in 1969,

but was restored to its former “glory” in 2001 by figurehead Mark Wilsmore, and is again the centre of attention for the car and bike fraternity, who congregate there in an uncanny throwback to those golden biker days. It has actually been by-passed by the new North Circular Road now, and sits on the original A406. But in a bizarre coals-to-Newcastle twist, the cafe’s British take on the Fifties American rock’n’roll hot-rod and biker culture is heading to the US. Wilsmore is teaming up with Florida-based Dime City Cycles to create an American Ace Cafe franchise that could result in as many as 10 Ace Cafes opening across the States. He will be setting up a temporary Ace Cafe at Dime City Cycles later this month, in the joint belief with Dime City owners that the shared “cafe racer” ethos between them is a natural partnership. Dime City Cycles say the American Ace Cafes will bring “the signature looks of the original, along with great food, live music and daily events”. It’s an intriguing prospect, but perhaps only if you sampled the “rocker” flavour of the Ace in days of old. I’m told it really was a sight to behold.

Pride, before the fall CD Tenerife 1 Recreativo ............................0 Real Betis 3 CD Tenerife ..............................1 EVENTS from last night (Thursday) may have changed matters but, as it stands, CD Tenerife are still alive in their quest to avoid relegation. If Salamanca have managed to beat Celta Vigo, then Tenerife will be down, but assuming that didn’t happen … WE’VE SURVIVED ANOTHER WEEK! And the players must get some credit for that. Wednesday’s loss at Real Betis was no shame, and the players did all right. It’s almost as though the acceptance of relegation has lifted the gloom. Around 45,000 people, the biggest in this league for many a season, were there to cheer Betis on to the win they needed to secure promotion. They got it, but not without a fight. Betis took an early lead through a Ruben Castro penalty, and Salva Sevilla made it two soon afterwards. But Tenerife had a go and got their reward with a rare Julio Alvarez goal. Isidoro killed the contest off on the stroke of half-time, but there were positives for the hardcore fans. Nino had to sit the match out through suspension so German, who played well against Recreativo, got his first-ever start. It was an important moment as the 21-year-old will lead the line next season. Four days earlier, he came on as a sub and changed the match against Recreativo. Tenerife welcomed back Mikel Alonso, and he had a stormer. One day, we will discover what happened to him around Christmas. For those who don’t know, he was Tenerife’s best player in the first half of the season. He then got injured and when he returned, he was so out of favour he couldn’t even make the bench. Whispers of a contract wrangle seemed the obvious rea-

Page 46

son. But he was back against Recreativo and was, comfortably, man of the match- Had he not got injured, then maybe the season would have been different. The visitors were still chasing a play-off place, but they never really threatened. However, neither did Tenerife. A couple of half-chances fell to Hidalgo and for long periods, it looked as though a goal-less draw would bring in the relegation stamp. But the introduction of German halfway through the second half changed matters. Tenerife played with two up top and this freed the midfield. Both sides started to attack and there were gaping holes for the sides to exploit. It was like a cup-tie at times. Tenerife rode their luck and got another large slice of fortune at the death. A fine through-ball had German away down the left wing. He tore into the box and the keeper Fabricio lunged Supermanstyle towards the ball. From my angle he may have got some of it, but he certainly got more of the Tenerife man. German went down, the ref pointed to the spot and the protests began. It was a tough decision to make. Nino picked up the ball. But Hidalgo, who has not missed a penalty all season, had other ideas. He strolled towards the ball boy and grab one himself! He looked at Nino, who threw back a stern glance, and thought better of it! Tossing the ball away he went for the water bottle and a supportive slap on Nino’s back. Thankfully, Nino smashed it past Fabricio, or otherwise the dressing room might have been a frosty place. A quick word for Manolo Martinez, the former Tenerife captain, who had a super game for Recreativo. I wasn’t the only person in the press box looking down and wondering what could have been if he were wearing the white rather than the black shirt.

This weekend, Valladolid are the visitors and they are in a real purple patch. A 14-goal haul in their last six matches has seen them cement a play-off place. They came down from La Liga with Tenerife last sea-

son, but that is where the similarities end. A dodgy spell in mid-season cost them any chance of automatic promotion. But after Real Betis, they are the class act in this league.

The darts are flying back! THE Oasis Fm Darts League’s new season is ready and willing to bull up again tonight (Friday). Such is the league’s popularity that 36 teams will do battle in two divisions over a mammoth 48-week schedule. And we extend a very special welcome for the five new teams who have entered our league. They are: Palms Sports Bar, Trap Door, Summerland Hopefuls, Sunshine Bar and Lucky Leprechaun. Good luck to you all. We are sure you will enjoy the weekly cut and thrust. One team hoping to continue where they left off last time around will be Division 1 champions Bar Nauta A. But the word on the street is that they may well face a stronger challenge from Bar 180, or even

the Phoenix Bar. (don’t you just love the Bosman Ruling?). The top division teams will be joined by newly-promoted Barracudarts Boys and Gaffers, who both look to have the talent to avoid going straight back down. Time will tell. With so many unknowns, only a brave person would try to pick a winner from Division 2, although Sundowners, who have bolstered their team, will be looking to bounce back up at the first attempt. It is not unheard of for new teams to gain promotion at the first attempt, so there is everything to play for. Whatever the outcome, the league committee extend a word of thanks for the continuing support from you all, and they look forward to another successful campaign.

Now, let’s play darts! By Geoff Huxtable

Woody sends Legends down WE are down to the business end of the season, and Legends A are the first team relegated from Division One after being held to a draw by Dreamers. The Los Cristianos derby was tight all night and Legends A looked set of victory when Davey made it 5-4. But Woody beat Aaron in the final rubber to take a point and send Legends A down to the second tier. At the top, Palms A are chalking off the wins they require to become champions.

13 May 2011 -19 May 2011

On Tuesday, the new cup champions beat last season’s winners 8-2. Palms A stay a point clear of Summerlands Superstars, who were pushed all the way by Atlantis Sharks before coming through 6-4. Tenerife Hammers A will finish third following a cagey 6-4 win over bottom team La Caña, but the Los Abrigos lads deserve a pat on the back. They matched the Hammers frame for frame all night. Trap Door stayed on track for a top-four finish as they snuck past 8 Ball Massive, who have sunk back into the bottom three. Their match at Men of Atlantis on Monday

looks like a relegation decider following the Adeje boys’ fine win at Target Bar. Men of Atlantis have only lost one of their last five and will be slight favourites. Hoops edged out the fading Phoenix Knights, while Bar 180 A put their B team to flight with an 8-2 win. Summerland Allstars still need a couple of points to be safe after drawing at home to Terrace A. Gaffers need just one point to guarantee promotion out of Division Two following their 7-3 win over Target Rangers. In fact, they will be up if Bar Tasca beat Phoenix Potters in the rearranged match on Monday

night. It’s the first of two massive matches for Tasca, who face second-place Legends B the following night. Bar 180 C are still in the promotion frame. Their 7-3 win over Hammers C keeps them just three points behind and, in their final four matches, they face no team inside the top six. Inn The Pink may have left it too late. They have had a brilliant 2011, and their win at Summerland Elite was their fifth straight victory. Both Barracuda sides won, while Exiles are finishing well. Their win over Toscales Tangos was their third consecutive success.

Horoscopes of the week Taurus

(April 21st - May 21st) Expect to experience an eventful week, during which siblings or children are concerned, when they think they’re right, but you think you’re right. It’s at times like this where you’d love to just run away until it all blows over, but you can’t. Don’t let friction spill over into your working life.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st) Conflict early in the week quickly disappears, allowing you to move on to a smoother time across the board. Minor family affairs may still need some attention, but using your charm will get you what you want. Work and money improve slowly, and, happily, you feel you’re finally getting there. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) Now that you’ve found your voice and your confidence has returned, you’ll find your innovative ideas being well received by bosses and workmates alike. And, as a welcome bonus, your personal and social life gets a tremendous boost - and helps you get noticed by someone special. LEO (July 24th-August 23rd) The moon in your sign opens your big heart to love, and your mind to new ideas. Use your creativity when you voice your opinions, and others will be more receptive to listening to what you have to say. You are positive and focused, but it’s not an ego trip, so don’t let yourself get tripped up. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) No one can deny that you’re a won-

Page 48

derfully-adept communicator, and you always have a captive audience when you speak, but try to mix humour into the proceedings, if you have a point to make. It will be better received. But there’s a gentle reminder that you must work harder at relationships. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Be careful how you introduce new concepts at work, because others may feel you’re pushing them into something they may rebel against. You’ll get more with honey than with vinegar, so downplay your need to succeed or they will think your interests at purely selfish. Are they? Proceed with caution. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) You’re hungry for success and you know that with the right attitude, you’ll manage to climb the corporate ladder. Just don’t step on anyone’s toes. The moon has already reached your sign and is telling you to use your intuition over work and love. Don’t be afraid to follow your heart. SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) You are in an exuberant mood at the start of the week as everything seems to be falling exactly into place. Work is going well, recent minor health problems have all but gone,

your finances have stabilised and the outlook for a new love interest looks bright. Use the charm offensive to get what you want.

FAMOUS WOMEN 1. Who was the first woman in the Bible? ---------------------------------2. Athlete Florence Griffith Joyner was commonly known by what nickname? ----------------------------------

AQUARIUS (January 21stFebruary 19th) You’re flavour of the month and everybody wants a piece of you. If love has been strangely absent from your life, this may well be the week where fate smiles on you and brings someone new into your circle. Trust your instincts, and listen to your inner voice before making your move.

4. The Edward and Mrs Simpson affair rocked the world in 1936. What was the first name of Mrs Simpson? ----------------------------------

ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Your charm, creativity and congeniality will return in full force in this coming week, and you’ll go all out to celebrate life and love in equal measures. If you get the chance to turn fantasy to reality, don’t waste a second procrastinating. Relationships have reached a new level and this could be cause for celebration.

Weekly Quiz 30-Second Brain Training

CAPRICORN (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Good news sees you looking forward to a fresh start, and it’s just the thing to lift your spirits. Positive developments at work and home see you walking on air, and even legalities seem to be turning in your favour. You can’t wait to turn to the next page of your life story.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Loved ones are disarmingly candid about their feelings this week, and some of the things they say may take you aback. Don’t go on the defensive. They’re not blaming you. Watch your finances and get rid of that devil-may-care attitude over your cash flow. It’s foolhardy and could be costly.
