Cue for a fiasco! Spain not to blame for E. coli outbreak, but industry loses 200m euros in a week THE great cucumber fiasco was revealed this week when Germany admitted it had falsely accused Spanish producers of spreading the deadly E. coli bug throughout their country. So far, 18 people have died and more than 1,000 people have been infected, 373 of whom are seriously ill, because of the outbreak. On Wednesday, The European Commission lifted its health warning over Spanish cucumbers from Almeria - where the problem was supposed to have arisen - after receiving a phone call from Leire Pajin, the Spanish Minister for Health. Yet Germans are still being advised not to eat any raw produce, and their farmers have had to destroy lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and vegetables in a drive to prevent the bacteria spreading. It does not seem to have affected Canary Island growers, or distributors, because the supermarkets here in Tenerife have had their vegetable shelves piled high with cucumbers throughout the controversy. In Tenerife, Agricultural Minister, Jose Joaquin Bethencourt told Canarian Weekly. “Don’t let the recent scare put you off Canary Island produce. I’m very sorry for the deaths that have occurred, but, the source of the cucumbers was from somewhere else, not Spain, including the Canary Islands. We provide high quality, guaranteed produce. There are strict controls in place, you have nothing to worry about,” The Canary Islands export fresh produce to other parts of Europe, a trade which has built up since the traditional market of Canarian tomatoes. But the

The European Commission has lifted its warning over Spanish cucumbers suspected of causing an E.coli outbreak

controversy has shaken European agriculture to the core, especially in Spain, and Rosa Aguilar, Spain’s Agriculture Minister, says the country will be seeking damages from the EU and Germany. She was so determined to prove the Germans wrong that she even ate a homegrown cucumber on live television on Tuesday. It was her protest against the initial suggestion by Hamburg scientists that Iberian cucumbers were likely to have sparked the outbreak. Within hours, German Agriculture Secretary Robert Kloos admitted at an EU farm ministers’ meeting in Hungary: “Germany recognises that the Spanish cucumbers are not the cause.” E. coli is short for Escherichia coli, which is a type of bacteria present in the gut of humans and some animals. Most strains are harmless, but some are able to produce toxins that can cause symptoms such as severe cramps and diarrhoea. This particular outbreak is causing severe infections and, in a number of cases, is also affecting the blood and

kidneys. To add to the problems engulfing Europe, the World Health Organisation revealed yesterday (Thursday) that the E. coli bacteria was a strain that had never been detected before. Aguilar’s main concern is the devastating effect the accusation has had on Spanish produce since the German finger was pointed last week. Some 150,000 tons of Spanish fruit and vegetables have since piled up, with losses estimated at 200 million euros (£175m) so far, according to the Spanish Federation of Fruit and Vegetable Exporters (Fepex). The Spanish Agriculture Minister added: “We’ve asked for emergency EU aid to absorb the damage done - damage that’s irreversible. “We reserve the right to hold the Germans to account in this affair, and we are also asking for them to contribute financially to compensate for the damage caused to Spanish production. “We stress that you can’t make accusations without having proof. It has caused damage that is unfair, undue and absolutely unjustified,

Spain Agriculture minister Rosa Aguilar, who ate Spanish-grown cucumbers to prove they were safe

without evidence or motive.” British officials yesterday announced four new cases of E. coli, including three Britons who recently visited Germany, and a German person on holiday in England. Spanish farmers say that public fear of their produce not just cucumbers - has spread throughout Europe, with customers cancelling orders, and farm-workers being laid off in a country with 21% unemployment. The Spanish media have reported that Germany, Denmark, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Hungary, Sweden, Belgium and Russia have all been banning Spanish

cucumbers after what scientists say is one of the largestever E. coli outbreaks. “Spain will be demanding compensation for all European vegetable producers who have experienced losses because of the health scare,” said Aguilar. Earlier, Spanish vegetablegrowers accused German authorities of covering up the real cause of the outbreak, and asked Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero to intervene. The source of the virulent strain of the bacteria is still not known, but scientists said the suspicions about vegetables or salads were

well-founded since cattle manure used in fertiliser can harbour E. coli. And Hamburg’s state health minister, Cornelia PrüferStorcks, the first German official to accuse Spain - last Thursday - insisted she was right to go public. She said preliminary test results from the Hamburg institute for hygiene and environment suggested Spanish cucumbers were the source. “It would have been irresponsible to withhold a wellfounded suspicion, given the high number of illnesses,” she added. As bickering continued, the death toll rose. In Boras, Sweden, authorities announced the death of woman in her 50s, who was admitted last Sunday after a trip to Germany. And in Paderborn, Germany, the local council said an 87year-old woman, who also had other ailments, had died. One American tourist has also been hospitalised in the Czech Republic with E. coli symptoms after also visiting Germany. Spain is the world’s biggest exporter of cucumber, fruit and vegetables and José María Pozancos, the Fepex Director General, said damage could run to 200 million euros every week if the “domino effect” continued across Europe. Pozancos insisted that Spain complied with all the health and safety regulations, and that the German government must compensate Spanish farmers for the damage to their reputation and credibility. Other Spanish growers have reportedly been “indignant” at Germany’s “wild accusations”, reminding the German authorities that there have been no problems with cucumbers consumed in Spain, or in other countries.

Romanians topping the foreigners’ list in Spain THE extra number of Romanians with residency in Spain has brought the volume of foreigners living there to over five million for the first time. It is a 2.6% increase on overseas residency figures over the first quarter of the year, with the Romanians, who make up the largest total, up by 11.58% to 861,584, and the number of Ecuadorians down by 7.16%.

The overall figure is 5,056,256, of whom 48% were born in another European country. The numbers, supplied by the Ministry for Employment and Immigration, show that immigrant totals from outside the EU have risen over the past year by 1.83% (213,757) to 2.62 million. There are now 34,265 more foreigners from elsewhere in Europe, compared with last December. The most numerous foreigners are the 861,584

Romanians, followed by the 777,278 Moroccans, up 4.32%. In third place are the 380,910 Ecuadorians. Their numbers are down because many have gone back home through a lack of work. Others on the foreigners’ list include: 227,426 Colombians (down 4.55%), 226,553 British, 171,578 Bulgarians, 160,636 Chinese, 130,270 Bolivians (up 11.83%), 60,358 Argentines (down 3.89%) and 29,729 Cubans (down 0.7%). Although foreigners from outside the EU comprise

48% of the total, they form the majority in 20 provinces, including Murcia, Álava, Barcelona, Girona and Cáceres. More than half the foreigners from other EU countries live in just six provinces, each with more than 100,000: Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante, Valencia, Málaga and Baleares. The over-65s make up 6.74% of the total. Britons have the average oldest age, at 50.3 years, and the Dutch and Germans at 44.4.

A WORD FROM OUR EDITOR

Ex-pats in Spain urged to persuade guests to take Things to make private travel insurance

Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

you go ‘Ahhhh’

OVERSTAYING their welcome? Drinking all your beer? Not paying for meals? Hosting friends and family from overseas can always cause stress. But potentially more serious and costly problems are avoidable, if residents remind guests to make simple travel preparations. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has called on British expats in Spain to urge their visitors to take out comprehensive

Each week certain stories in the UK press catch my eye, and this, as a dog lover, is a tear jerking tale. The events unfold on another holiday island – Malta. A dog has managed to survive despite being bound and shot in the head before being buried alive. The stray collie - named Star by her rescuers - managed to wriggle her way to the surface of the shallow grave where she had been left to die in Malta. Animal welfare officers were investigating a tip-off about three dogs being held in a cage when they heard her muffled whimpering. They were shocked to find only her wired-up snout poking above the ground. As they dug her out, they were even more horrified to discover Star had her legs tied together with shoe laces and had been shot in the head with a pellet gun. The five-year-old was rushed to the nearest veterinary clinic where she had emergency surgery. Vet Trevor Zammit said: “We had to spoon out pellets from under her skin. The person who shot her didn’t do so accidentally because she was shot from quite close range.” Star’s incredible tale of survival has touched the world with a Facebook page entitled

Page 04

Star: the dog who lived, set up in her honour. The site, which has attracted more than 35,000 people, also aims to raise awareness to animal cruelty, pet adoption and rescue. Police are now hunting the person responsible for her sickening ordeal. And in China a rare white fawn has been born and staff say the animal is unusually energetic compared to other baby deer. Except for a prominent patch on its head and a strip of brown running halfway down its back, the creature is pure white. The animal was born at the Bolin Deer Farm in the city of Laiyang, Shandong province. The fawn was galloping around the farm just four hours after it was born. Farm manager Yang Qi said: “This deer is far more vigorous and smarter than the other spotted deer.” The white deer, also known as “snow deer” are a very precious breed and are considered an auspicious sign in China. “I have never seen such a deer before despite the fact that I have been breeding deer for more than 10 years,” Yang said. Despite its unusual coat, farm staff said the fawn was a normal size and build.

travel insurance before they come to stay. The call comes as new research reveals that young people are more likely to spend their money on a present for their host than take out a travel insurance policy. A survey commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office shows that a third of people failed to take out travel insurance the last time they stayed with family and friends overseas. More than three quarters of those visiting friends and family this year said that saving money was a key factor. However, a

lack of comprehensive travel insurance cover is a false economy, and they could face serious financial difficulties if they need medical treatment, or lose valuable possessions. Over a third of British guests have relied on their hosts when things have gone wrong during their trip. British expats have faced a range of problems - from taking their guests to hospital when they fall ill, to providing financial help. Maria Leng, British Consul in the Canary Islands, said: “When friends or family visit, it’s natural for them to feel

at ease and not prepare in the same way as they would for other holidays. “But things can quickly become very stressful if your guests end up in a tricky situation and lack travel insurance. So if you’re asking guests to bring out your favourite teabags or newspaper, ask them to get travel insurance as well. “It will save you and them from what can otherwise be difficult and expensive situations.” Residents can tell guests to visit www.fco.gov.uk/travel or the ‘UKinSpain’ website for more information.

Telecoms drop prices thanks to submarine fibre optic cable “Cheaper internet connections for subscribers in Tenerife” CITIZENS in Tenerife are already feeling the benefits of the Cabildo’s NAP or Neutral Network Access Point. The new hi-tech facility at the ITER in Granadilla not only offers much better and quicker high speed broadband connections but also cheaper access to internet. With the arrival of the submarine fibre optic cable on 16 May, the market in Tenerife is now open to other telecoms operators, which will make the competition more dynamic and liberalize the market place although the service will not be fully operative until September 2011. Nevertheless, some telecoms companies like ONO, for example, have decided to go ahead and launch cut price offers for their customers by saying that these rates have been made possible by the new fibre optic cable. ONO is now telling its customers it can offer higher quality internet services in the Canaries and “with the arrival of the submarine cable thanks to the ALiX Project” they will be able to enjoy the benefits of fibre optics “at exclusive rates for subscribers in the Canary Islands.” This confirms the forecasts made by the president of the Tenerife Government or Cabildo, Ricardo Melchior, who has tirelessly explained to the people of Tenerife: “ALiX means we will take a

giant technological leap forward in broadband connectivity with higher quality services, larger capacity and better prices”. From now on the competition between the different telecoms operators will become fiercer as they will offer subscribers cheaper rates and better broadband connections. It means that customers in Tenerife will benefit from cheaper phone calls and faster more reliable internet connections The start up of the NAP for West Africa and the Canary Islands is the first step towards reaching the Cabildo de Tenerife’s goal to increase the island’s competitiveness through the ALiX Project. This involves developing ICT infrastructures and the exponential increase of the internal and external connectivity of Tenerife. With this major initiative the Cabildo has set itself the

challenge of turning the Island into one of the main hubs on the global telecommunications network and to gradually increase submarine connectivity between the Canaries, Africa, Europe and Latin America. It means there will now be greater capacity available to transmit data from the Canaries so that the business sector in the islands will be able to increase productivity and be more innovative. The NAP or Neutral Network Access Point is a kind of “airport terminal” for telecommunications which houses the servers in a reliable and secure facility that hooks up to its own cable and offers space for information communication technology firms to operate. The Tenerife NAP will dramatically increase the existing range of ITC in the Canaries. Telecoms boost One week ago, Tenerife’s

The president of the Tenerife Cabildo, Ricardo Melchior and the CEO of ONO, Rosalía Portela (right) signing the buoy which brought the undersea cable to Tenerife.

Technological Institute for Renewable Energy (ITER) and ONO signed a collaboration agreement, though which both companies have pledged they will encourage the development of and disseminate information about advanced services in the telecommunications field. The objective of the agreement is to make available to subscribers the most advanced services available in broadband. ONO has pledged it will carry out campaigns to raise awareness of the benefits of using next generation networks. For its part, the ITER, through different initiatives within the framework of the ALIX Project, will promote a greater supply of telecommunications and help to make Tenerife more attractive as a business location compared to other similar territories. ONO has some seven million subscribers and offers services such as telephone, television and Internet. In 2010 total revenue amounted to 2,472 million Euros and 725 million Euros of operating profit. The Tenerife’s Government’s ALiX Project, with public-private investment of 112 million Euros, aims to improve access to the global information society in the Canaries by liberalizing telecommunications through initiatives that will contribute to African development.

Rolling along for a Craftsman’s licence

Fag smugglers are caught on luxury ferry A NEW luxury ferry, running between Santa Cruz and Huelva, in southwest Spain, is not quite the godsend cigarette smugglers thought it might be. The Volcán del Teide began its first journey from the Tenerife capital at the end of March, and has made eight trips since then. It has carried 5,000 passengers to Huelva altogether and an unwanted haul of

28,000 cartons of contraband cigarettes! At least, that’s what customs officers have uncovered so far. A Moroccan man, the latest to chance his arm, was nabbed last Friday with more than 20,000 cartons, worth around 85,000 euros, which were hidden in his van. He had planned to flog the lot in Morocco, and also the second-hand van, which he bought in Tenerife as well. Four other passengers were also arrested that day, attempting to smuggle tobacco into mainland Spain.

Iberia increase Russian flights AMONG the favourite destinations for Russian visitors are Alicante, Malaga and Tenerife, while the long haul include Santo Domingo, Mexico City and Buenos Aires, according to airline Iberia. CIGAR-ROLLING, dollmaking and basketweaving were among the 43 trades put forward by people seeking a Craftsman’s licence from Tenerife Cabildo. The Cabildo received 134 applications and Efraín Medina, Councillor for Economic Development, Trade and Employment,

warned that the prospects would have to pass some strict tests to prove themselves. The candidates are spread across 24 municipalities and the tests were at the Latin American craft museum in La Orotava. Other popular trades include: jigwork, jewellery, doll and figurine-making, goldsmiths and shoe-making. Medina stressed that the main challenge facing candidates was “that they must

03 June 2011 - 09 June 2011

pass stringent tests and demonstrate their worth as true craftsmen”. Master craftsmen and experts in the trade will be assessing their qualities, such as skill, finish and knowledge of different materials and tools. Medina said: “The number of applicants highlights the wide variety of specialities, which is the result of many years of tradition and effort.” The Cabildo holds two qualifying tests a year for

Tenerife residents who want ‘Craftsman’ status. They must each meet certain requirements, including having their own workshop to develop their trade, appropriate professional training and at least a year’s experience. Once the licence has been obtained, craftsmen then qualify for various additional training courses, involving customer service, sales techniques, customer loyalty and marketing among other subjects.

The airline has been flying continuously between Madrid and Moscow since March 2005. In June 2007, St. Petersburg joined its network of vacation destinations. In 2010, more than 157,000 people travelled on Iberia flights between Spain and Russia. Iberia has reported it will be increasing its flights between Spain and Russia this summer, which will resume from this Saturday, June 4th, and run until September. Flights

between Madrid and St Petersburg, will BE 18 connections a week and between Moscow and Madrid, 14 flights. Additions will be made for the peak months of July and August. The A319 aircraft will have a capacity for 134 people, which will offer 8732 places during the months of operation, with flights every Tuesday and Saturday. In July and August, there will be four flights between Spain and the Russian capital - on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays -. The increase of seats in the Madrid-Moscow route will be 9,051 seats, a 13.53% increment compared to the summer of 2010.

In addition, the Cabildo have also agreed through the area of Youth, Education and Equality, three types of scholarships for a total of 202,000 euros will be available. This measure is intended to facilitate activities

to encourage reading, school gardens and environmental projects. Also approved for the school year 2011/2012 was PIALTE, which has developed within the island and has participants from all municipalities of the island, carrying out several actions aimed at schoolchildren and their families such as storytelling, puppet shows and puppet theater, exhibitions and family workshops. The objective is to promote and implement PIALTE reading habits in the population of the island of Tenerife, during 2010/2011 academic year this has benefited some 10,000 schoolchildren.

Traffic was diverted in and out of Las Galletas via the TF653 and 652 (towards Guargacho), and allowed access to El Fraile by the TF66, from the roundabout at El Palmar. Alterations carried out included resurfacing, new road markings and the repainting of pedestrian crossings.

Tourism chief aims for that magical 5m target THE Government’s Tenerife Tourism department is going flat-out to top last year’s number of visitors with a series of promotions. The aim is to better the 2010 figures of 4,831,000, and Tourism chief José Manuel Bermúdez is convinced he is on target to get near the five-million mark at least. “That is our objective, and it looks as though we will,” he said. “Our presence in our visitors’ countries of origin should be ongoing. We want

tourists to keep Tenerife in mind always as a place for their holidays.” His campaign includes familiarisation trips for journalists, promotional stands at trade shows and advertising campaigns with tour operators and airlines. More than a dozen reporters from the Ukraine and Russia, plus six from Canada and several from Ireland, last month visited such tourist hot-spots as Mount Teide, Siam Park and Pueblo Chico.

and skippered by Victor. The baby marlin, about five years old, was just over two metres long and weighed between 30-40 kilos. Shahid Butt, who owns Direct Telecom and lays on two fishing trips a year for

his staff, said: “It’s the first marlin we have ever caught after four years of trying, and we are delighted. “After having our photo taken with it, we released the marlin back to the sea.”

Ana and Rosa’s Tenerife Facebook fans odes to music now reach 10,000 mark TENERIFE’S official Facebook website now has 10,000 followers - the highest total of all the Canary Islands. The website, created and maintained by the Government’s Tourism department, has outstripped Lanzarote (8,274), Gran Canaria (5,540) and Fuerteventura (3,460). Delighted Cabildo tourism chief José Manuel Bermúdez said the figures demonstrated the Island’s great interest as a holiday destination, and that the content and conversations were attractive to users. He also emphasised the dramatic evolution of the page, considering there were just 1,118 followers a year ago. The page, called Tenerife Enjoy it All, shares photos, videos, events, promotions and special events. It also serves to introduce the Island

Tourist

into the network, and enables locals to identify with it and get involved in promoting Tenerife. The Cabildo’s ultimate goal is to turn those

10,000 friends into real Tenerife fans, hopefully, to entice potential new holidaymakers here. The Government’s sub-

Chief, B

ermudez

sidiary also manages the Island’s Facebook profiles in the UK (1,645 friends), Germany (516), Italy (678) and France (342).

Expedition to Guimar is well worth making! THE ninth annual Thor Heyerdahl School of Travellers conference, spread over four consecutive Fridays, begins today (3rd June) at the Piramides de Guimar.

SPAIN’S acclaimed singer/actress Ana Belén and renowned pianist Rosa Torres Pardo are collaborating to present a combination of music and poetry tomorrow night (Saturday) at the Adám Martin auditorium in Santa Cruz. La Vida Rima starts at 9pm and features works by Mompou, Mozart, Bartok, Stravinsky, Beethoven and Fauré. Madrid-born Rosa Torres Pardo, 51, has worked with major international orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and the

Page 10

London Symphony, performing all over the world. Ana Belén, also from Madrid, has become one of the most important Spanish singers and actresses over many years.. The 61-year-old’s long recording career includes iconic songs such as La Puerta de Alcalá, Arde Paris, Lía and her version of Billy Joel’s Piano Man. She appeared in various films during her early career, but has concentrated on her music over the last two decades. Tickets are on still sale for the event through the usual channels (902 317 327) from 10am-7pm today and tomorrow. You can also get them via the Internet www.auditoriodetenerife.com

It has been organised jointly by the Dept of Cultural Tourism at the University of La Laguna, Piramides de Guimar, Tenerife Cabildo, Tenerife Tourism and the Ministry of Education, Universities, Culture and Sports of the Canary Islands. The School’s philosophy has always been to demonstrate that anyone can enjoy an adventure and learn from a journey. Travel, it proclaims, is more than the distance or destination but an attitude - a way of moving around past obstacles and gaining experiences in remote or difficult places to access. That is why this conference is named after the famous Norwegian scientist and traveller, and the connection with the life and works of Dr. Heyerdahl. The lectures will involve known speakers and interesting subjects, in which guests will share their experiences with trips to unusual places. Today’s programme includes

a lecture by José Antonio Masiá Rodriguez, founder of the Trekking Adventures agency, entitled Reflections of the traveller on foot. Next Friday sees mountaineer and traveller Maria Rosa Benitez Mengual, with her talk on More than mountains: Impressions of a trip to Nepal. Two regular speakers at these conferences will be in attendance on 17th June: National Environment Award

winner Eduardo Martinez de Pison, and mountaineer, writer, film-maker and broadcaster Sebastián Álvaro Lomba, who will present Feeling the Mountain. Finally, on 24th June, the closing conference will be headed by José Ramón Morandeira, founder of university courses specialising in “Emergency medicine in the mountains”, and Maria Antonia Nerín, Director of

Master in Mountain medicine, both from the University of Zaragoza, who will offer How to get there and not die trying. All four conferences start at 8pm with free entrance, and reservations are recommended because of the limited seating. For further information and reservations, call 922 514 510, or go to www.piramidesdeguimar.es

Mobile phones ‘could increase risk of cancer’ MOBILE PHONE use could increase the risk of brain cancer, experts from the World Health Organisation (WHO) have warned. Scientists have classified handsets as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” - and advised people to use handsfree devices or text instead of calling. The classification came after the WHO working group concluded radiofrequency electromagnetic fields associated with handsets potentially heightened the chances of suffering glioma, a malignant form of the disease. The WHO had previously said there was no established evidence for a link between cell phone use and cancer. The mobile phone industry has played down the latest announcement, pointing out it is not based on any new scientific evidence. And it stressed the cancer category that mobile phones have been classed in also includes coffee, pickled vegetables and dry cleaning. The Department of Health said of the WHO claim: “This does not change our position which has been to adopt a precautionary approach”. It added “children should only use mobile phones for essential purposes and keep all calls short”. A week-long meeting of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) group featured 31 scientists from 14 countries in Lyon, France. The agency said the five billion mobile phone sub-

Page 12

scriptions around the world would increase, particularly among young adults and children. Pending (additional research), it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure, such as hands-free devices or texting. Christopher Wild, International Agency for Research on Cancer Jonathan Samet, chairman of the working group, said: “The evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the classification.” The scientist, from the University of Southern California, added: “The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.” IARC director Christopher Wild advised mobile phone users to use hands-free devices or text instead of call to reduce risk while more research is done. “Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings, it is important that additional research be conducted into the long-term, heavy use of mobile phones,” he said. The international working group reached its conclusion after discussing and evaluating available literature on radiofrequency electromagnetic fields and exposure to wireless telephones. It did not quantify the risk but referred to a previous study (up to 2004), which showed a 40% increased risk for gliomas for those who used their phones for an average of 30 minutes a day over a 10-year period.

Man arrested after bank-bomb stand-off A MAN carrying a bomb has been arrested following a three-hour stand-off at a bank in Watford. Specialist teams from Hertfordshire Police, including firearms officers, were called to the Co-op Bank in Market Street at 10.18am this morning after reports the suspect was threatening to harm staff. A cordon was set up around a large area near the building and police said the man was on his own. He was arrested at around 1.20pm following reports of several loud bangs at the scene. The man, wearing a white t-shirt, was made to kneel on the ground in front of the bank with his arms in the air before he was led away to a police van. A police spokeswoman said: “An explosive device of some kind - as yet we don’t know what this is - has been

removed from this individual.” Police said they secured

the “successful arrest” after the man refused to leave the bank.

The force was supported by specialist firearms experts in the military in making the arrest. An MoD spokesperson said: “Defence Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team supported the police in the incident, in accordance with normal Military assistance procedures.” Witnesses described police marksmen aiming their guns at the bank and reported rumours that the man had a bomb strapped to his body. Hertfordshire Police said in a statement: “Safety of members of the public was paramount and a cordon was put in place and people were evacuated from nearby premises. “There will be police activity in the town centre for a while to come. “Understandably this caused concern within the community and we would like to thank members of the public for their co-operation in this matter.”

Ayrton Senna’s dramatic Tunisia: 270 refugees life in the fastest lane… feared drowned at sea A NEW documentary has used previously unseen footage to chronicle the extraordinary life of Brazilian racing legend Ayrton Senna. Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone allowed the makers access to his personal archives to help illustrate the driver’s brilliant but ultimately tragic career. Senna won legions of fans around the world and was hailed a hero in his native Brazil for his take-no-prisoners attitude on the track. His refusal to cede any ground to his rivals even when holding the racing line meant a crash looked inevitable intimi-

dated his rivals - but also brought out the best in them. “If you refused to give in to him it could cause a monumental accident and sometimes that happened,” former British champion Nigel Mansell said. “There aren’t many drivers around who are like that.” Despite his devil-may-care attitude, Senna campaigned to make driving less dangerous but it took his death following a crash in 1994 to prompt real safety improvements. He died aged 34 after his car hit a concrete wall at the San Marino Grand Prix. The film, called Senna, is out (today) Friday.

AROUND 270 refugees are feared drowned after the boat suspected of carrying them illegally to Europe broke down in the Mediterranean. Tunisian coast guard officials said they managed to rescue 570 people from the stricken vessel but hundreds more are missing. The boat, carrying refugees trying to flee the violence in neighbouring

Libya, reportedly encountered problems about 12 miles (20km) off the Tunisian island of Kerkennah. Attempts to rescue them were hampered by bad weather, authorities said. In recent months, thousands of people fleeing upheavals in North Africa have been heading to Italy on rickety boats, creating an immigration crisis in Lampedusa, an Italian island situated half way between Tunisia and Siciliy.

Birmingham chiefs planning to 'send' 100 jobs to India BIRMINGHAM City Council is ‘exporting’ IT jobs to India to cut costs. Unite said Birmingham City Council is the first local authority in the country to move jobs to India, complaining that the work was paid for by taxpayers. Employees have already been recruited from India to shadow workers in Birmingham, without any consultation with the public or unions, said Unite. Around 100 jobs will be transferred to India as part of the move. Officials said they feared more council jobs in Birmingham and other local authorities could also go abroad. Bosses in Birmingham have formed a joint venture with out-sourcing firm Capita, which plans to export IT, human resources, payroll and finance posts to India. The Service Birmingham venture is understood to have already brought over managers from an Indian firm to see which council jobs they could take over. It follows the council’s decision to axe £212m from its public services budget in March. National officer Peter Allenson said: “It beggars belief that council workers will be forced to train workers from overseas to do their jobs so Capita and Birmingham Council can lift

and shift them abroad. ‘This is a major betrayal of the people of Birmingham and the loyal staff who serve this city. “This is an outrageous decision and Unite will fight tooth and nail to stop this Tory-led council from exporting these valuable jobs overseas. “Unite is demanding that Birmingham City Council halts its plans. “We fear this could be just the tip of the iceberg and other councils could follow suit. “Thousands of public sector jobs could go. Once these jobs go they will not come back. “Indian workers are not to blame; in fact with little or no trade unions to represent them, we have genuine concerns about their treatment. “The blame lies firmly with private companies prepared to go to any length to cut costs for profit and this Toryled council which is encouraging them to get away with it.” A Service Birmingham spokesman said: “As the City Council’s partner, we are committed to operating as efficiently as possible. “We therefore need to offer the Council the best combination of operating models to deliver cost savings and efficiency gains while maintaining our existing service levels. “We are talking about a limited number of back office technical roles. No customerfacing staff will be affected.”

Google accused of new Chinese Hacker attack COMPUTER attacks originating in China tried to break into the email accounts of US government officials, military personnel and Chinese political activists, Google says. Google traced the “spear phishing” emails to Shandong Province in central China. But the country’s foreign ministry has rejected the claims, saying “blaming these misdeeds on China is unacceptable”. Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said: “Hacking is an international problem and China is also a victim. “The claims of so-called support for hacking are completely unfounded and have ulterior motives.” Shandong province was also the origin of a cyber attack on Google’s computer systems in 2009 - an assault that soured the company’s relations with the Chinese government, and prompted Google to move its Chineselanguage site to Hong Kong. More recently, a company in Shandong was linked to a cyber attack on several of the world’s biggest oil companies.

According to internet security company Symantec, China is the source of nearly 30% of the world’s malicious emails. Though it is impossible to prove conclusively that the attacks are linked to the Chinese government, experts have long suspected official involvement in hacking activities originating in the country. A series of incidents including the Google attacks of 2009, and the discovery of the Ghostnet cyber espionage network in the same year - have targeted foreign governments, Beijing-based diplomats, Chinese political activists and journalists. The Tibetan governmentin-exile has also been a repeated victim.

A recent Sky News investigation revealed murky connections between hackers and the Chinese Government. A conference organised by hackers in a Beijing hotel was sponsored by an internet security firm with connections to the Chinese military, and was attended by Chinese police officers. “Phishing” attacks work by sending an email containing a link or attachment that, when opened, installs “malware” on the target’s computer, allowing the hacker to steal information. To succeed, the victim must believe that the email is authentic. Google says the subject line of one of the emails sent in the recent attack was “Fw: Draft US-

China Joint Statement”. The latest attack comes following an announcement from American officials that deliberate infiltration of vital US information networks may be considered an “act of war”. Earlier this week, a Pentagon spokesman told the Wall Street Journal that the US would consider “all appropriate options” in response to foreign cyber attacks. “If you shut down our power grid, maybe we will put a missile down one of your smokestacks,” he said. Britain is also a major target for foreign hackers. Cybercrime and internet espionage are now estimated to cost the UK £27bn a year.

Robbie kicks off Take That reunion tour TAKE THAT lived up to the hype surrounding their reunion with Robbie Williams as they kicked off their sell-out tour. The show - staged at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light football ground - was the group’s first full concert as a five-piece since 1995. There had been some speculation ahead of the gig over whether Robbie’s nerves would hold out. He has openly talked about suffering from stage fright and his dislike of touring. And the 37-year-old looked emotional as they finally appeared together to perform their hit The Flood. The five-piece performed

Page 14

the track while standing on top of a giant waterfall as dancers in Spiderman wetsuits scaled the water beneath them. Many fans felt Robbie was the highlight of the night as he performed his own hits -

Rock DJ and Angels - to a huge sing-along. Williams rejoined for last year’s Progress album after quitting the line-up in 1995, paving the way for years of acrimony. He held off rejoining when

the band reformed for a series of shows in 2006, instead concentrating on his solo career. But they eventually buried the hatchet and secretly entered a recording studio in 2009.

The group teased the audience of 55,000 as they opened as a four-piece without Williams and performed Rule The World. As the rain came so did the hits Greatest Day, Patience and Hold Up A Light. The stage was transformed into an Alice in Wonderland setting for Shine as Mark Owen rode on top of a giant caterpillar. The show cost £15m to stage and the theatrics included pyrotechnics and a 20m long mechanical body which raised cheers from the north-eastern crowd. Chants for Robbie echoed around the stadium before he flew out of the screen behind the stage on a highwire to the biggest scream

of the night. He belted out Let Me Entertain You before shouting: “You look beautiful Sunderland.” He went on to joke about celebrity gagging orders and was pulled across the stage in a chariot by scantily-clad dancers. At one point, Jason Orange said “It’s been 16 years since Robbie left the band.” Williams replied: “I didn’t leave. I was sacked!” Take That’s previous Circus Tour in 2009 was the fastest selling in UK history. This tour has smashed that record. The concert was the first of 29 dates which will see the band perform to 1.75 million fans in the UK and Ireland.

Ex-Beatle Ringo makes his peace with Liverpool RINGO STARR has declared his love for his hometown as he prepares to play a gig in Liverpool. The former Beatle upset fans in the northwest in 2008 when he said there was “nothing” he missed about the city. Drawing a line under the incident, the drummer said: “I love people in Liverpool. My family are still there - not my mum and dad of course. “I have such good memories of Liverpool. Liverpool is very close to my heart.” He was speaking at an intimate gig to promote his first European tour in 13 years with his All Starr Band. Completing the line up of the band are musicians Rick Derringer on guitar, Richard Page on bass, Edgar Winter on saxophone, Gary Wright on keyboards, Wally Palmer on guitar and harmonica, and Gregg Bissonette also on drums. The Fab Four drummer will be 71 in July and he told Sky News that he never thought he would be an old rocker. “I remember one day we were opening for someone in England and she had this

band and we were like ‘you’re still playing and you’re 40!’ and now I can understand it because we can play until we drop and that’s the deal,” he said. Starr was part of Britain’s biggest musical export as the drummer for the Beatles. As one of the first British bands to crack America they sparked hysteria when they landed in 1964. They are the most successful selling band in history. The Beatles suddenly shot back into the charts in 2009 with their re-issue campaign the digitally re-mastered 12 studio albums and Magical Mystery Tour, as well as Past Masters Vol. I and II. As the X Factor goes Stateside and the show continues to dominate the headlines, Starr does not understand what all the fuss is about. “God bless Cheryl. I love you. But is that really the biggest thing going on in the world right now?” he asked. He is still close to the other ‘last remaining’ Beatle but joked he is yet to be invited to Sir Paul McCartney’s upcoming wedding to Nancy Shevell. “He’s getting married? I’m still waiting for my invite in the post.”

Bahrain seeks F1 return as martial law ends at last

BAHRAIN has lifted martial law in a move the government hopes will be a sign to tourists and business of a return to normal - but activists fear repression will continue. Officials are especially keen to get Formula One motor racing and tourists back to the troubled country. The opening grand prix of the season was cancelled in March because of unrest that erupted in February when pro-democracy protesters, inspired by uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, clashed with police. A meeting of the sport’s governing body on June 3 could reinstate the race for

later this year, but US-based Human Rights Watch has said a heavy crackdown on opposition activists during 11 weeks of martial law should count in the decision. Britain has voiced encouragement on the easing of restrictions but continues to voice its concern over democratic reforms, however it still urges against all but essential travel to Bahrain. Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt said: “We welcome the King’s announcement of a national dialogue and the lifting of the state of national safety. “It’s now critical that there is concrete change and genuine political reform, the only way to ensuring longterm stability. “We remain deeply concerned by reports of human

rights abuses, including the recent arrests of protesters and medical staff and the nature of the charges brought against them,” Mr Burt said. “We continue strongly to urge the Government of Bahrain to meet all its human rights obligations and uphold political freedoms, equal access to justice and the rule of law.” The Saudi-backed regime’s crackdown included demolishing the roundabout monument on March 18, that was seen as the central symbol of Shia protests. The dusty streets of the capital, Manama, were calm on Wednesday, but in outlying Shia villages there was heavy anti-riot police presence, according to online activists.

Police were checking cars around the capital and villages. “With the end of the emergency situation, the security would not be here but they still are,” said Ali Zirazdi, a 30 year-old unemployed man, who said police had fired tear gas after a few hundred people gathered in the Shia village of Diraz. King Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa, whose Sunni Muslim family rules over a majority Shia population, offered a dialogue on reform in a speech on Tuesday. “I hope the opposition joins the dialogue,” writer Taher Mohammed, 26, said. “I’m totally against any call for protests. It would affect all Bahrainis and it could get out of control and lead to direct clashes.”

Horses, boats and a big lunch for the Jubilee THE QUEEN will celebrate her Diamond Jubilee over a fourday Bank Holiday weekend exactly one year from now. Marking 60 years on the throne, Her Majesty will begin the June celebrations by attending the Epsom Derby on Saturday, June 2 2012. The Jubilee celebrations throughout the UK and across the Commonwealth will culminate in a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and

Page 16

a formal carriage procession by the Queen June 5. That will be a one-off extra Bank Holiday announced by the Government in January this year. The programme of events, issued by the Press Secretary to the Queen, follows an announcement earlier this year that a 7.5 mile long Diamond Jubilee Thames river pageant consisting of up to 1,000 boats would be central to celebrations. Vessels will include a mix of the historic and the modern, from rowed boats to steamers and larger motorised

craft representing all parts of the Commonwealth. Thousands of members of the public will be able to take part in the Sunday, June 3 pageant by boarding passenger boats taking part. On the same day the Queen will encourage people across the country to take part in street parties or picnic lunches in small or large groups in what is being described as a “few hours of community, friendship and fun”. Bank Holiday Monday’s events begin with a televised Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace featuring

British and Commonwealth musicians. Tickets will be made available to UK residents through a public ballot. In the evening a network of beacons numbering 2,012 will be lit by communities and individuals across the country. Among them will be church tower beacons on the battlements of the Tower of London and St James’ Palace in London, The Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, at Killyleagh Castle in Northern Ireland and on top of Pen Y Fan mountain in Wales.

Asylum ‘Amnesty’ allows 160,000 to stay in the UK A change in guidance for border officials has created an “amnesty” for asylum seekers, MPs have claimed. The Home Affairs Select Committee accused the UK Border Agency of being not fit for purpose and failing to effectively control immigration. The agency’s target of clearing a backlog of 450,000 cases by this summer has been achieved largely through increasing the number of people allowed to stay, a report by the committee found. And the MPs conclude a very large number of people remain in the UK who either have no right to be here or who would have been removed had their cases been dealt with earlier. The processes need to be efficient and fair in dealing with genuine students and those filling skills shortages, but tough and uncompromising to those who seek to abuse the system and stay illegally. Keith Vaz, committee chairman, said: “Though progress has been made, it is clear that the UK Border Agency is still

not fit for purpose. “While there is no doubt that individual case workers are dedicated and hard-working, there are serious concerns over the agency’s ability to deal with cases and respond to intelligence swiftly and thoroughly. “The processes need to be efficient and fair in dealing with genuine students and those filling skills shortages, but tough and uncompromising to those who seek to abuse the system and stay illegally.” To clear the backlog, guidance was changed to allow officials to consider granting leave to remain to applicants who had been in the UK for between six and eight years. That compares to the 10 to 12 years that applied at the start of the backlog process. Some 403,500 cases were concluded, with just 38,000 (9%) having their claims rejected and being removed from the UK. But 161,000 (40%) were granted leave to remain. The MPs maintain that such a large proportion amounts, in effect, to an amnesty. Joseph Givans arrived from Jamaica 11 years ago and says he is still waiting for permission to stay in the UK permanently.

He is living in the West Midlands and being helped by the charitable organisation Brushstrokes. “I can’t get any money for the kids because I haven’t got my stay,” he said. “I cannot sign on because I haven’t got my stay. I can’t get a home for my kids because I haven’t got a stay. “I haven’t yet got the legal right to stay permanently in the country but I’ve been here all this time.” Immigration minister Damian Green denied there was an amnesty. “This Government is overhauling the uncontrolled immigration system it inherited,” he said. “We are already radically

reforming the points-based system and other routes of entry that have been subject to widespread abuse and will re-introduce exit checks by 2015. “We are making greater use of intelligence to remove people with no right to be here and are concluding individual cases faster. We have known for some time that the asylum system we inherited was chaotic. Some of these cases date back more than a decade and the UK Border Agency was always clear that because of the length of time many of these individuals have been in the country there would be no alternative to granting them leave to remain. There is no amnesty.”

Celebs giving voices for ‘Talking Benches’ CELEBRITIES including Stephen Fry and Miranda Hart have lent their voices to “talking benches” at a number of beauty spots. The National Trust asked the stars to record monologues for the bench mate project - designed to give listeners a commentary or personal story inspired by the surroundings. Other stars taking part include David Gower, broadcaster John Sergeant and TV presenter Claudia Winkleman. Fry said: “I am very proud to be associated with a bench and I hope I provide comfort, balm and solace for many a weary bottom.” Other recordings included

Gower’s talk about the “unstately home” of Calke Abbey in Derbyshire and Hart’s love letter to the outdoors at Cragside, Northumberland. Hart said: “The idea of being somebody’s ‘bench mate’ and chatting to them while they get to experience a beautiful view is lovely.” The National Trust looks after more than 300 historic houses and gardens across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It said the idea for the benches came about after research suggested that “just half of the country take the time to appreciate the great outdoors and Britain’s natural beauty”. Each bench is engraved with three words the celebrity has used to describe the setting.

You’ve come to the right spot for a German lesson A GROUP of Spanish students from Arona, who are learning a new language, employed a different approach to great effect last week.

Rock and roll along to Estrellas’ Grease THE audience at next Sunday’s performance of the musical Grease, by the Estrellas Theatre School, are invited to dress up in Fifties gear to capture the rock’n’roll theme of that era. The show (on 12th June), takes place at the Magma Arts and Congress Centre, Playa de Las Americas, from 6pm. And the bar opens 90 minutes earlier to allow everyone time for a swift drink before the off! Matthew Marshall stars as Danny, with Luke Towler as Kenickie, and they will be known to many Canarian

Weekly readers because, as the duo Matt and Luke, they made the final three of Oasis Fm’s successful Tenerife Loves Karoake competition last month. It’s a glittering night not to be missed, with children between three and 16 displaying their talents in this all-time great musical, which starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton John in the film adaptation of the Broadway spectacular. Tickets are 10 euros for adults, and just five euros for kids from five to 12. Under-fives are free. The children have worked extremely hard, and they are so enthusiastic about Grease that they would welcome your support next Sunday.

They gave their usual classroom a miss to spend the day at the Accion del Sol dog refuge at Granadilla - and were rewarded in a big way. The mature students are studying German, the refuge is sponsored by German charity Aktiontier - and the manager of the refuge, Marion Gonzalez, just happens to be German! It proved to be a great opportunity for the students to have a hands-on practice with the German language, and to support the refuge at the same time. Some of the youngsters have even signed up for some dog-walking sessions.. Arona’s Club de Atletismo are hard in training for Accion del Sol’s Fun Dog Run, on 2nd July at the refuge. You are all welcome to enter with your own dog, or you can “borrow” a pooch from the refuge. There’s a 3.5km race for adults and a 1.5km run for children. Entrance is five euros, which includes food and drink. The event starts at 10.30am, to be followed by a Foam Party and all the usual entertainment at the refuge. For more information, contact the refuge or their link on Facebook https://www.facebook.com /event.php?eid=1714761362 40452 Please visit Accion Del Sol if you are looking to adopt a dog.

Accion volunteer Karen Clack says: “Every time I visit the refuge, he just sits quietly, waiting and watching. “He is very nervous because he has been badly treated in the past, and he needs an owner who has lots

of love and time for him.” If you think you can supply the home and the time for this poor stray, then please contact the refuge on 922 778 630. Remember, every dog brought there by the various Town Hall dog-catchers receives full veterinary care, is bathed, deflead, wormed, inoculated, micro-chipped, passported and sterilised or castrated, all ready for its new home.

Restaurant serves up charity match-winner CHEF Raul Roldan Munoz, a lifetime Barcelona fan, provided a superb tapas buffet for the packed house at Sunset Bay’s Restaurante Sebastian, who were watching the Champions League Final on Saturday. Guests savoured the food, and the match between Manchester United and Barcelona - especially Raul as

his team won 3-1 - and they also contributed to the restaurant’s chosen charity, Help for Heroes, which provides assistance for wounded soldiers. Raffle prizes were supplied by the Clear Blue Skies Group, Restaurante Sebastian and Darren Chamberlain, manager of Tenerife Sur football team, whose club were pipped at the post for the league title that day. Darren’s wife, Maria, and her friend, Emma Jane Keeling, are taking part in the 100km in 24 hours walk

next Sunday (12th June) in Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, to collect further funds for Help for Heroes. They are

hoping to raise 500 euros. The prize tickets were drawn by Maria and Emma, together with Adie Castle,

visiting Tenerife on leave from the Parachute Regiment. In all, the raffle raised 300

euros, and Adie collected a further 200 euros by selling Help for Heroes wristbands. These are also available at Restaurante Sebastian and Clear Blue Skies estate agents, in Fanabe, at three euros each. Anyone wishing to contribute to the charity walk by Maria and Emma can donate on-line at http://www.justgiving.com/ Clear-Blue-Skies-Group. Raul and his team at Restaurante Sebastian would like to thank everyone who helped make the night such a fantastic success.

Britain's Got Talent Final Saturday 04 June, 7:00pm - 9:00pm, ITV1 Paul Potts, George Sampson, Diversity and Spelbound have all done it. So who will be the act to win this year's BGT crown (as well as receive a nice big cheque and the chance to appear on the Royal Variety Show)? Of course, the 40 semi-finalists were only announced last weekend, so at the time of writing there's no way we - or even Simon Cowell himself - can know which ten acts have been voted through to tonight's final. Although Cowell has reportedly said he'd like to find "the new Lassie" through this show (and that would make a change after four years of two-legged winners), you can't help but suspect he'd rather a singing act gets most votes. However, he - along with Amanda Holden, Michael McIntyre and David Hasselhoff - gets no say in who wins. It's down to a public vote. The results are at 9.30pm.

Britain's Got Talent Final Results Saturday 04 June, 9:30pm - 10:00pm,ITV1 Judges Simon Cowell, Michael McIntyre, Amanda Holden and David Hasselhoff join Ant and Dec as the winner of this year's contest is announced. Plus, two special guest performances. Last in the series.

New regular Christine Tremarco joins the cast as fun-loving nurse Linda and a traumatised Mads comes face to face with the man who attacked her as the medical drama continues. Following Tess’s departure the ED is once again understaffed until temporary nurse Linda – an old friend of Adam’s ex-wife Jessica – steps into the breach. With the ED at full stretch after a lorry crash, the team are underwhelmed by Linda’s performance but she must have impressed someone as it looks like a major promotion is in the offing... Meanwhile, a distraught Mads finds herself in front of the man who attacked her in a mini cab. Will she find the courage to come forward and report the attack in the face of his increasingly threatening behaviour? Actress Christine Tremarco (Waterloo Road, Clocking Off) is donning a nurse’s uniform to bolster the overworked ED team at Holby’s busy City Hospital in Casualty from Saturday 4th June. Christine, who played impulsive school secretary Davina

in Waterloo Road, returns to Casualty as Linda, following a guest role last year. Last seen helping Jessica start a new life in America, fun-loving nurse Linda returns to Holby following a miscarriage. Believing her irresponsible behaviour was to blame she is determined to become more sensible. But when Linda is promoted, she finds that being in charge doesn’t come naturally... “I was delighted when I was asked to come back and join Casualty,” says Christine. “I really enjoyed my two episodes last year and it’s so exciting joining a longrunning show. Everyone has given me such a warm welcome – it’s such a great team of people. “And Linda is so much fun to play,” she adds. “She is very outgoing and fun and tends to speak her mind which sometimes gets her into trouble. She likes to go out and still thinks she’s 16 in lots of ways. She certainly thinks nothing of going into work still with a sore head from the night before. That said, she does have a huge heart and would do anything for anyone. She has a very caring

side to her but she has the attitude that she’s young, free and single so she might as well go out and enjoy herself.” Christine joins the world’s longest-running prime-time medical drama at a busy time. The show is about to celebrate its 25th birthday and move to Cardiff at the same time. “It feels so exciting to be joining the show at the time of its 25th anniversary and to be surrounded by such a great cast and crew,” says Christine. “I’m really looking forward to the move to Cardiff although Bristol is a lovely city and I will miss it.” Irrepressible Linda may be a party girl but she’s also a great nurse. Did Christine have to undergo any special training for the role? “I spent time with a real nurse who was incredibly helpful and I also spent time in a hospital. And we also have medical advisors on the show who are amazing and always on hand to help with anything medical that’s tricky. I’m quite a squeamish person and I don’t like blood so I really have admiration for real nurses.”

Live International Football

England comprehensively beat the Swiss 3-1. The game follows a long hard season of domestic football for the players in the England team, many of whom will have taken part in some gruelling European campaigns for their club sides. Failure to qualify for the finals next year would be unthinkable for England’s fans, who are still recovering from their team’s lacklustre performance in last year’s World Cup. Capello has been the target of some stinging criticism from

fans and press alike and knows that nothing less than automatic qualification will appease them. Another figure in the firing line is Wayne Rooney, whose lack of goals at international level has been a major concern. But first choice striker Rooney, who received a booking for a lunge on Joe Ledley during England’s 2-0 win against Wales in March, is ruled out of this afternoon’s encounter. Adrian Chiles presents, with commentary from Peter Drury and Andy Townsend.

4:15pm, ITV1 England v Switzerland Switzerland at Wembley as Fabio Capello’s men continue with their campaign to qualify for Euro 2012. (kickoff 4.45) England are still leading Group G and coach Capello will take some comfort from memories of the previous meeting between the two teams, when

Dr Ormerod (Robert Daws) is called out by the coastguard to rescue a grieving widow who has got into difficulty on her yacht. Can he persuade her that she has a future to look forward to? Meanwhile, a rag and bone man collecting scrap from Jack (Gareth Hale) and Alun (Andy Wear) is trampled by his own horse and admitted to the Royal for surgery – leaving Jack and Alun to look after the horse…

ITV presents a compelling new five-part psychological thriller, showing every week night. Written by acclaimed screenwriter Anthony Horowitz (Foyle’s War, Collision), Injustice follows the story of a former high-flying lawyer whose new life in Suffolk begins to unravel when a face from the past asks for help and a murder occurs close to home. The impressive cast includes James Purefoy, Dervla Kirwan, Nathaniel Parker and Charlie Creed-Miles. William Travers (Purefoy) used to be a distinguished London

Poor Kids 10.35pm, BBC1 There are 3.5 million children living in poverty in the UK. Through the eyes of four children, Poor Kids tells the story of what living under the poverty line really means. Courtney is eight and growing up in poverty in Bradford; her

barrister widely admired for his passionate defence of the underdog, but all that changed after he suffered a complete nervous breakdown, abandoned his career and uprooted his family to Suffolk. His wife Jane (Kirwan) also gave up her glittering job in publishing and now works parttime in a young offenders institute. William’s life is thrown off-balance again when he sees a figure from his past on a railway platform. At the same time, old university friend Martin Newall (Parker) asks William to defend him against murfriend Holly is “loaded” because she went on holiday last year; 10-year-old Paige is popular and forthright, but she doesn’t like any of her friends to see where she lives; and 11year-old Sam wears his sister’s hand-me-down uniform to school, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. Following their lives, Poor

der charges for a killing which he swears he did not commit. William returns to London and his old chambers, and finds past allegiances being tested and his family’s fragile peace put under threat. Back in Suffolk, a body is discovered on a deserted farm and DI Mark Wenborn (Creed-Miles) is assigned his biggest case yet. William and Mark are two very different characters from very different worlds, but their destinies soon become intertwined in a gripping, winner-takes-all game of cat and mouse. Kids shows how having little money affects these children’s everyday life: including lack of food, being bullied and having nowhere to play. The programme hears the children’s understanding of the situation they are in, their thoughts on the future and where they see themselves when they are 21.

Teenager Chloe has got a piercing in her tongue and an attitude to match; son Mikey has been eating food from bins; and brother Steve has had a run-in with the school bully. With Liam and Caroline overstretched, Tommy fills the breach with his own idiosyncratic brand of parenting… Meanwhile, Jim has met a woman at a car-boot sale. She seems perfect for him, but there’s just one hitch: Caroline’s sure she’s a nun. Why is she interested in Jim, and can they warn him before it’s too late?

10.30pm, ITV A new documentary by Bafta award-winning filmmaker Brian Hill which looks at the most common of all street crimes – mugging. Mugging affects people from all walks of life and can have life-changing consequences for its victims. Last year alone there were over 1000 muggings a day, and the film tries to go beyond the statistics to look at the human stories behind these numbers, as victims and muggers talk candidly about their experiences.

Page 32

Do the perpetrators of these crimes perform such shocking acts for financial gain – or are there other underlying reasons for their actions? The film offers a rare glimpse into the thought processes and motivations of the robber on the street. It also features shocking stories from victims, including Jane, who was pushed from her bicycle as a mugger stole her bag. She ended up in a coma after hitting her head and suffered from

brain damage, which has changed her life forever. Another person, Paul (pictured), talks about how he went to the aid of a woman named Jackie when she was being robbed and ended up being attacked himself. He was so viciously assaulted that he had to have a major lung operation. Paul reveals that he does not regret going to Jackie’s aid and taking a stand for all the innocent victims of this common but shocking crime. Emmerdale: Small village, big drama

ITV’s major re-brand of Emmerdale has been unveiled, following a modernisation of the iconic show. The new brand identity appeared for the first time on-screen last week on Monday 30th May and includes new opening titles, updated logos and a refresh of the renowned theme music. Emmerdale’s website has re-launched www.itv.com/emmerdale, exclusively revealing the show’s more contemporary look and feel. ITV Creative commissioned branding agency LambieNairn to produce the revamp, which has been undertaken to reflect the programme’s increasingly current content and to celebrate its enduring success, as part of ITV’s longterm investment in Emmerdale’s future. It depicts Emmerdale as a dynamic yet authentic village of hidden depths where what you see isn’t always what you get, whilst

Page 34

maintaining the unique escapism of its stunning rural backdrop. The new opening titles have been shot in HD and will immerse the viewer into the heart of the village, peeking behind closed doors and reflecting different elements of the legendary Yorkshire village. The sequence begins with a sweeping woodland shot leading to a glance inside three of the most iconic sets – the Woolpack, the Dingles and Home Farm. A suite of logos have been designed to reflect the different facets of the village including brass and stone versions, whilst the infamous melody of Emmerdale’s theme music remains the same but with a modernised new orchestra recording. The re-brand follows a £5million investment by ITV Studios to create a bespoke production studio in Leeds, which opened earlier this year. Emmerdale is riding high in the ratings

currently averaging 8.5m viewers per episode, the only soap to have increased its audience share year on year since 2009. In the past 12 months viewing has notably increased by 13% amongst 16-34s and 6% amongst the upmarket ABC1 audience. The re-launched website www.itv.com/emmerdale promises an immersive Emmerdale experience featuring an interactive map of the village and video profiles of pivotal characters. Steve November, Executive Producer says “Our aim is to refresh perceptions of the programme. Emmerdale has a unique voice and we wanted to reinforce that by giving it a fresher, more contemporary feel, to reflect the richness and diversity of its characters and storylines.” Emmerdale is produced by ITV Studios and appears on ITV1 Monday to Friday at 7pm with an extra episode at 8pm every Thursday.

Brushing up on a greener home

B&Q sales boosted by sunshine and a Royal Wedding KINGFISHER, the owner of B&Q, hailed sunny weather and the Royal Wedding as sales rose in the UK and Ireland - but warned of tough times ahead.

FOREST FALLS is an uplifting and vibrant shade from the freshgreen section of Dulux Tailor Made Colour. There are six shades to choose from on the Dulux stripe card, from a bold Perspex or gel style green, which immediately enriches a room with a powerful sense of positivity, to subtler shades which create naturalfeeling environments that blur the boundaries between internal and external space. This key colour takes its inspiration from the wider trend for botanic references, which marry the appreciation

of the natural world with a scientific approach to looking at plants and flowers under a microscope. Early adopters of this trend include Missoni and Paul Smith, who incorporated intricate floral patterns and natural greens in their spring/summer 2010 collections. The catwalk for autumn/winter 2010 also led the way with Marni, Francesco Scognamiglio and Rochas all featuring this dynamic colour in their shows. Now it’s the turn of interiors to embrace this naturallyenlivening palette, which promotes a strong sense of wellbeing in the home.

Sales for Kingfisher - which include Screwfix and its French arm, rose 3.3% to £2.7bn in the 13 weeks to April 30. Sales were up 1.4% in the UK and Ireland for the firm, boosted by bank holidays around Easter and the Royal Wedding. Pre-tax profits rose 21% to £174m, as the company said it was selling more garden furniture and outdoor paint as people enjoyed the outdoor weather. It added that sales of goods for ‘indoor projects’ fell 10% as people bought equipment and tools for outdoor DIY schemes. Sales also rose for Screwfix,

fell into administration earlier that month. These stores, dotted across the UK, will open as B&Q stores ‘in due course’. This will give the B&Q chain a total of 527 stores and more than 27,000 staff in the UK. Kingfisher chief executive Ian Cheshire warned that tougher times lie ahead as the

impact of austerity cuts begins to hit household spending. He said: ‘It remains our view that this year is likely to be a tough one for all retailers, especially in the UK. “It is also likely that the early spring weather will have brought forward some of our outdoor seasonal sales.’

Most workers live 30mins from home

A SURVEY from the Office of National Statistics shows three out of four people work within 30 minutes of home. The data, the most recent available, show that people working in London tended to

Page 38

up 5.4% to £124m, helped by the introduction of new product ranges. It remains our view that this year is likely to be a tough one for all retailers, especially in the UK. Shortly before the end of April, B&Q spent £23m to buy 31 leasehold properties from troubled rival Focus DIY, which

take longer to travel to work, with only 44% having a journey of 30 minutes or less. Three times as many of London’s workers as the national average – 16 per cent – took more than an hour. Most people – 71% – drove to work, with 10% walking,

7% catching a bus, 5% getting a train and 3% cycling. Again, however, the picture was very different in the capital, with only 35% of those who worked in London driving to work and around half of all workers taking public transport (20% the train, 18% the Underground and 12% the bus).

Outside London, only 9% of workers took any form of public transport to work.Around three in five, or 59%, of all workers in the UK worked and lived in the same local authority district. The remaining, around 41%, worked in a different local authority district from the one in which they lived.

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

How does your garden grow? A REPORT, released by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), confirms the vital role that gardens play in reducing city warming. Gardening Matter: Urban gardens brings together, for the first time, UK and international research into how gardens affect the air temperatures of towns and cities. The report not only shows how important urban gardens are at reducing temperatures but also that they provide a range of other benefits. Results quoted in the report prove that plants bring down energy consumption in winter by providing shelter and insulation; cool the air in towns and cities in the summer; help reduce the risk of flooding by absorbing rain water through soil and support increased biodiversity. “Gardens are important for reducing city warming,” says Dr Roger Williams, Head of RHS Science. “We are concerned that with current trends for building apartment blocks with limited green space and houses with much smaller gardens the benefits from private gardens will decrease to the detriment of people living in cities. We hope this report will highlight the

need to keep green spaces and that even they may even be increased for the benefit of the environment and future generations.” Research shows that urban environments are prone to heating when vegetated areas are replaced with dark, impervious surfaces. Pavements and roads absorb more heat and reflect less than planted surfaces, making them warmer. This results in urban air and surface temperatures being significantly hotter than surrounding rural areas. Gardens also provide valuable flood-reduction benefits. Trees help reduce the

flow of rainfall by holding rain in their canopies. In addition water is filtered into the soil which helps ease demands on urban drains. Despite this the area given over to hard paving in gardens is increasing. For example, in Leeds over a 33-year period there was a 13 percent increase in impervious surfaces. This has been linked to a higher frequency and magnitude of flooding in the area. “Although gardens provide immense benefits we also need to be aware that there are some potential negative impacts on the environment,” says Dr Tijana Blanusa, lead

author of the report. “Gardening can contribute indirectly to carbon emissions through the use of powered garden tools and the manufacture and transport of horticultural goods. And the use of water in gardens is predicted to rise over the coming years.” The report suggests ten tips for gardeners to improve the benefits of gardens to urban areas. The charity is also launching an online survey to see how people garden in urban areas. Anyone wanting to participate should visit – www.rhs.org.uk/urbangreening. Source www.rhs.org

Give your new plants every chance EVEN though we are bathed in hot sunshine for most of the year here in Tenerife, it does not mean you can’t plant new plants in your garden – and enjoy them growing. And if you want the highest rate of success, here are a few extra steps you can take to safeguard them when planting. Set out your plants - still in their pots - for at least several days in the exact location

where you will be planting them. And in Tenerife, at least, you will know for sure that the plants you buy from garden centre have been supplied by a local grower - if not nurtured by the centre itself. Plants are grown all around the world - many in highlyregulated greenhouse environments - and they can often need a little time to adjust to the light and humidity difference before their roots are stressed out by planting. Mix in amendments to the

03 June 2011 - 09 June 2011

soil where you are planting if it is not compatible with the plant’s native growing medium. Water the hole well before planting, then water again afterwards so that the soil is inviting for roots to grow both outward and downward. Shade your new arrival for the first few days after planting. Hot sun will encourage the plant to transpire faster, often making the foliage droop. Allow the plant to work in gently to its new quarters by making the transition as mini-

mally demanding as possible. These tips should reduce stress when planting over here, or even in the UK when there’s a rare burst of hot sunshine! A less-stressed plant will settle in faster and grow stronger than one that has to deal with more stress. In fact, the latter will struggle to survive at all in the conditions here on the Island. So make sure you give your plant every chance by watering frequently. But little and often is the key, or you could swamp the poor thing.

Love Gardening Don’t miss next week on TV. A BRAND new series in which Britain’s favourite horticulturalist, Alan Titchmarsh, travels around the country seeking out some of Britain’s loveliest domestic gardens. He will be focusing not on country estates and celebrated public gardens, but on those magical little spaces created by ordinary Britons who have turned their plots into wonderful outdoor living spaces. Alan looks at how these beautiful gardens – from cottage gardens to traditional rose gardens - have been created, and helps viewers understand how they can

get a similar effect in their owns paces. He is helped along the way by a team of experts who will be passing on their own particular wisdom. Food expert Valentine Warner has tips for those who are hoping to grow their own, wildlife expert Charlotte Uhlenbroek reveals how to encourage (or discourage) insects and animals into the garden, and garden designer Matt James has ideas on getting the look right, using everything from furniture to water features. Plus Laetitia Maklouf demonstrates how to get the most out of the tiniest of spaces, whether they be a conservatory or a single window box. The show has something to inspire novices and seasoned gardeners alike.

CARL PATTISON from Robot, answers your hair questions

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

Email: carl.pattison@canarianweekly.com

Say that again… HOW many times have you had conversations with your stylists about your hair, discussing technicalities, and the words they are using just go over your head? I always use these everyday “hairdresser” words, but then explain them simply to clients. For instance, I use the words symmetrical and asymmetrical a lot. Most people don’t understand these terms, so I often dig out pictures to explain what I’m doing to make things easier for them. Every haircut in the world is conceived of only four original styles, pioneered by Vidal Sassoon, the God of hairdressing. These are: one length, a bob, graduated or layered. When a stylist can cut these shapes, he/she is armed for life with the ability to cut any hairstyle. Forget cutting courses or refresher sessions because if a stylist has been trained well, then NO style is beyond him or her. All these basic four shapes are then intermingled and joined together to create a diversity of styles. All you need to know is: can your stylist create the look you’re looking for? Always ask about the words they are using, and never just agree to something you don’t understand. Above all else, continue to ask questions throughout the service, because it makes our job more interesting, too.

One length, the same from root to tip, with no shaping or layering.

Bobbed, literally a length above the shoulder to even ear level. Comes in a variety of shapes, including layers and graduation, to choppy and texturised.

Layering gives hair dimension, and movement creates volume and texture and is so versatile, but don’t overdo this on finer hair. Graduated means a build-up from shorter to longer - ie: in the nape (as above) to longer on the front section. Great on medium to thicker hair.

Dear Christine I’ve been in love with my ex’s brother for five years, and he feels the same. The thing is, he asked me out at the same time as my ex did, and I turned him down. I paid the price, though, because my ex was evil. His brother is now married and wants to have an affair with me. He said he’ll leave his wife in his own time, and has asked me not to get in touch until I have an answer. What should I do? Debbie

Dear Debbie I’m sorry you’re upset about all this. In truth, you’re in love with a guy who’s happy to have an affair with no commitment. Doesn’t that make him a disrespectful deceiver? He isn’t even keeping in touch with you. It sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. Love comes in two flavours: good and bad. With good love, you’re stable, secure and centred. You know exactly where you stand because both of you are consistently and openly acting to show your love and bring about a shared future. Good love is in the real world. But that’s not what you’ve got, is it? You have feelings that are mostly generated by fantasy and wishful thinking. You’re sitting around waiting for him to pick you up like a doll he can easily put down again. Don’t you think you deserve better? I certainly do. So what can you do? You could keep yourself in this painful uncertain-

ty, which would prevent you from finding more rewarding relationships, or you could realise you don’t like what you’ve got so it’s time to look for happiness elsewhere. In my opinion, it’s a good time for you to start casual dating, so you can work out who is and isn’t right for you and how to be yourself around men. Don’t settle for less than ‘good’ love! Christine Dear Christine, I’m 19, have no family and am going to England soon to marry an only son, whose parents worship him. His mother doesn’t like me, though. She thinks I’m going to turn him against her, which is the last thing I’d do as I know what the feeling of being unloved is like. We’ve been saving hard to buy a small apartment here, but this means we cannot have the big wedding my fiance’s mother wanted, so we’ve planned to marry in a register office. We don’t mind this at all, but his mother says that if we don’t get married in a church, she will never forgive us and will not attend the wedding. When we tell her we can’t afford it, she just looks away. Now, though, she’s managed to convince my fiance that her way is right. She has sent 60 invitations to her friends, whom we barely know, and has arranged a meal at a big hotel. She hasn’t offered to help out with the money side, though, as she says that’s nothing to do

with her. Do you think this is fair? ‘R’

Dear ‘R’, In my opinion, if your guy goes along with this manipulation, your marriage will not last too long, and you may be left with children to bring up alone! If your fiance fails to challenge his mother on this, I believe he’ll never change his ways and you’ll lose all respect for him. I think you’ll also end up hating the mother-in-law, since you’ll find yourself blaming her for everything. But it’s your fiance who is really in the wrong! He doesn’t appear to be man enough to say, “Mum it’s my life, so please let me live it. You’ve lived your life, so it’s my turn now”. Please don’t go ahead with your plans for marriage - at least for 2-3 years. After all, what’s the rush? You probably think I’m being too harsh, and yes, maybe I am, but I married a mummy’s boy at your age and she made my life hell. My husband refused to stand up to her so I lost all respect for him and ended up divorcing him. I beg you not to be the fool I was! Wait until you are more mature and have lived a bit before looking again at the situation. In the meantime, have some fun and don’t be so serious so young. Don’t ever forget that you deserve to be treated with respect by both the man you choose to marry, as well as his mother. Good luck. Christine

Ear candle treatment IT is popular opinion that Hopi ear candling originated with the Ancient Egyptians and then spread through the Orient and then into Europe.

This is an alternative medicine practice, claimed to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. There is evidence that the Greeks and Romans used the therapy, but it is the Native American Hopi Indians of north east Arizona who seem to have put their name to the treatment. It was said to have been used before meditation to cleanse the spirit. The candles would not have been made of wax but would have been a hollow twig or glazed clay vessel with a double barrel to create the spiral of smoke. The thought of putting candles in your ear and lighting them is unusual, to say the least - it probably seems a little weird and slightly unattractive, too. But thermal auricular therapy is gaining many fans in the holistic world of therapeutic

treatments. It is a very simple form of therapy, certainly not intimidating, and is suitable for children and the elderly. Although the treatment is carried out on one area of the body, it is truly a holistic experience and, therefore, works on the whole physical and psychological aspect. It can also include a brief, lymphatic, drainage massage and pressure-point treatment to encourage the sinuses to drain and increase the circulation of blood and lymph. Treatment times vary: those with severe problems may wish to use the candles three times a week until symptoms improve, reducing to once a week then once a month. Generally, quarterly maintenance programme is recommended. Physical benefits *Increase of oxygen and nutrients in the tissues because blood flow to the head and neck is increased *by stimulating and improving lymphatic drainage, waste material is more easily eliminated *it revitalises the whole body *it relieves a number of ear and throat related disorders including ear aches, sore throats, snoring, sinus con-

03 June 2011 - 09 June 2011

gestion and pain or pressure when flying Psychological and spiritual benefits *Increases alertness and concentration *Encourages a feeling of balance *Cleanses the client’s aura *Rebalances the energy flow to the body and releases energy *Opens the spirit and cleanses the emotions The treatment is described by those who have experienced is as gentle, warming and relaxing. Ear candles have a purely physical function. A light suction action (chimney effect), and the movement of the flame, create a vibration of air in the Ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This induces a pleasant feeling of warmth and a balance of pressure in the ears, forehead and sinuses. It is sooth-

ing and helpful for earache and headache, ear noise, stress and nervousness. There are filters built into the candles, which ensure nothing drops into the ear. They also prevent anything from being sucked into the candle. The client must find a suitably-comfortable position from the onset of the treatment because, when the candle is lit, he or she will not be able to move for 15 minutes while it is burning. There are one of two positions which may be adopted; either with the client lying on his/her side, or lying on the front with the head turned to one side. Obviously, both of these involve a change halfway through the treatment. When the candle is placed into the ear, it must be comfortable and upright. It is left to burn for 10-15 minutes and is removed. The proce-

dure is then carried out on the other ear. When the candle therapy is complete, the client needs to turn on to his/her back for the facial massage. A 20minute, lymphatic, drainage, facial massage, which will probably include pressurepoint movements, completes the treatment. Movements may include gentle massaging of the temples and draining towards the main lymphatic ducts. Contra-indications As with any treatment, there are situations where it is not wise to receive a treatment, such as: *A recent head or neck injury *Severe circulatory disorders *Dysfunction of the nervous system *Epilepsy *Eczema *Grommets *High or low blood pressure

*Infections of the area *Perforated ear drum Candle composition Ear candles are made of a tapered, organic-lined tube coated with wax - usually beeswax. Candles are up to 3 cms long and some manufacturers add herbs and essential oils. These are released when the candle is burned, adding to the overall experience and aiding the healing process. *Camomile: anti-inflammatory and sedative properties *Frankincense/cedar: spiritual awareness *Orange/lemon: relaxed awareness *Patchouli/bergamot: recommended for female strength *St John’s wort: good for the nervous system and as an analgesic *Sage: stimulates the circulation and relaxes the blood vessels

A shoppers stampede over booze-price glitch

Food Safety Week FOOD Safety Week will be held in the UK from 6th to 12th June. Food Safety Week is an annual event held to promote the importance of good food hygiene in the home. What goes on behind closed doors will be exploring what goes on behind closed doors – to see what people really do in their own homes when preparing and cooking food. There will be a series of events which will help raise awareness of good and bad hygiene practices that go on in the home. Other resources available for use during Food Safety Week include a food hygiene myths quiz, posters, leaflets and recipe cards. The myths quiz will help to debunk

AN ERROR which slashed the price of beer and cider led to a stampede of customers at a number of Tesco supermarkets in Scotland. A deal offering three boxes of various alcoholic drinks for £20 was actually going through the tills at three for

£11. News of the glitch spread rapidly over the internet and Twitter as consumers realised they had been charged far less than advertised. Police were called to Tesco in Greenock after heavy congestion was reported in the car park as customers rushed to get the deal. A spokesman for the supermarket chain said the pricing

error was quickly spotted. He said till operators changed the prices manually until the system was corrected. It is understood the offer was supposed to be “buy three boxes of beer and save £11”. Instead customers were able to purchase up to 45 small bottles of lager or 36 cans for £11.

There were also problems at a store it the Silverburn shopping centre in Glasgow and in Bellshill. Twitter user Graham McKenzie tweeted: “Price glitch for beer has literally caused a stampede at the local Tesco. Tempers are flying in car park.” Another user Cameron McNair tweeted: “Everybody in Tesco is going beer crazy!”.

Sweet taste of success... DOUGHNUT producer Krispy Kreme has announced plans to double its number of UK stores due to swelling demand of the sweet treat. The company, which produced more than 50 million doughnuts for UK customers in the year to January, has said it aims to open 10 stores a year. The plans will see total stores of the doughnut producer double from 47 to nearly 100 by 2016. The company already has a presence in more than 200 Tesco stores. The expansion plans came as Krispy Kreme reported a 1.4% increase in like-for-like sales and total sales of £33.4m, compared to £29.7m the previous year. Rob Hunt, joint managing director of Krispy Kreme UK, said: “We are excited about growing into new UK markets and are confident in our expansion plans. “Krispy Kreme is a brand that consumers are passionate about and our store openings

commonly held food hygiene myths, such as: ‘You need to wash chicken before you cook it’; ‘Plastic chopping boards are more hygienic than wooden ones’; and that ‘Use by dates are put on packaging to encourage shoppers to throw food out and buy more.’ In addition to getting pupils in schools and groups in the community talking about food hygiene, the Agency is taking advantage of the increasing appetite for social networking and is using Facebook to develop a community around Food Safety Week events. Food Safety Week is an annual event designed to promote the importance of good food hygiene in the home and help reduce cases of food poisoning. More information is available from www.food.gov.uk

speak for themselves with customers queuing overnight to be the first through the doors.” In the last year, the company opened six new stores in the UK, including Bristol, Cardiff and Liverpool, and 50 cabinets in Tesco. Krispy Kreme, which first came to the UK in October 2003 through a concession in Harrods department store, will open its next store in Leeds in July. It was founded in 1937 in North Carolina, in the US, where the parent company is still based. It licences the brand on a franchise basis in international markets.

Thomson Couples

Whistling up a glittering jewel that is La Gomera We continue our in-depth look at the seven main islands of the Canaries with this week’s spotlight on La Gomera, the second-smallest after El Hierro

THOMSON launches Couples, a new childfree holiday experience at resorts worldwide One in three adults agrees that “Hell is other people’s children on holiday” 40% say their own children adversely affect their holiday enjoyment. Thomson Holidays has officially launched Thomson Couples, an all new adultsonly holiday experience aimed at couples who want to spend time abroad in a child-free environment, away from their own kids, and other people’s. With the first Couples customers flying out this month, Thomson is the first mainstream travel company to offer 100% child-free holiday resorts worldwide. Here in Tenerife the H10 Gran Tinerfe is a Thomson Couples Hotel, “Tucked between a sandy beach and designed by Cesar Manrique, this laid-back hotel has a setting worth shouting about. The Gran Tinerfe couldn’t be in a better spot. Turn one way and there’s a sandy beach, head the other and there’s a great mix of shops, bars and entertainment.” News of the launch will be welcomed by more than three quarters (79%) of all those questioned for a Thomson Holidays survey who admitted their holidays were affected by other people’s children, while 31% said that unruly youngsters have actually ruined a well-earned break. What’s more, one in three UK adults (35%) said they agreed unequivocally with the statement “Hell is other people’s children on holiday”. For more than half those questioned (55%) the main complaint about children is their behaviour in the hotel restaurant, while nearly half (48%) find the “general noise and whining” made by kids on holiday irritating. Another major gripe was noise from children in the room next door (45%), while for a third (32%) over-tired youngsters can also spoil an evening’s entertainment. The hotel swimming pool is a flashpoint too, where 41% are irritated by the noise from excited children. Being splashed while sunbathing around the pool was annoying for nearly a third (30%), while 21% said they dislike

being splashed by children while they’re swimming in the pool. Interestingly, the problems are not solely confined to other people’s children. Some 40% of parents say their own kids affect the enjoyment of their holiday, while 4% of these say they can even ruin it completely! The research went on to show that many people would like to see adult-only areas in hotels. More than half (55%) believe the bar should be a no-go area for kids, while 42% would like part of the swimming pool cordoned off for adults to swim quietly. The subject of adults-only holidays is explored in greater detail in a thoughtprovoking ‘White Paper’ commissioned by Thomson Holidays, which also takes a light-hearted look back at the history of the family holiday. The paper includes interviews with people taking both Thomson child-free and child-friendly holidays in Cyprus during last October’s half-term holiday. Luke Gaskins, Head of Product Development at Thomson Holidays, explained that Thomson Couples is part of the company’s commitment to designing holidays around the differing needs of its customers, and would complement its hugely popular Thomson Families resorts. “Family holidays are incredibly important to Thomson and an extremely valuable opportunity for families to spend quality time together, enabling children to experience new places, foods and cultures – and have fun,” said Luke. “At the same time, many parents also tell us how much they cherish a few days to themselves once in a while in addition to their family holiday, to recharge their batteries. Just as our Family resorts are focused on keeping children entertained, Couples is completely geared to adult relaxation and together time. At a Couples hotel, peace and quiet both come as standard”. Available from summer 2011, Thomson Couples will feature 19 contemporary hotels exclusive to Thomson UK customers in stunning locations across all haul types, from the Algarve to Crete to Mexico and the Dominican Republic.

A GEM of nature is how you are bound to describe La Gomera when returning home from this wonderful, historic place. You’ll have to trawl deep into your vocabulary and imagination to find the correct words to paint a true picture of its landscapes. And La Gomera is waiting for you to discover its greatest treasure: the National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site of La Garajonay, a dense forest of notable richness in terms of its flora, with a magical appearance. Here, you will find many species which truly are extinct elsewhere, as well as peaceful springs; and this is definitely the ideal place for people who love hiking. Garajonay National Park, the highest point of the island, offers visitors a wide variety of forest environments, with a close-up look at nature in its virgin, unspoilt state. The humid fog that normally exists here nourishes the small streams that spring from the edge of an arid land, formed by species that disappeared in other parts of the world millions of years ago, but which have somehow survived here. The central peaks of the park are normally covered in fog, and beneath lies a fascinating, luscious and incredibly green rainforest. The landscape at the higher altitudes contrasts sharply with the dry coastal and lower zones Destroyed and transformed, mostly because of centuries of intense exploitation, the most outstanding formations of Canarian Laurisilva still remain-

ing there are now protected. The Laurisilva is of great scientific interest because a large percentage of the animal and plant species that make up this ecosystem are unique to the islands. They are not found anywhere else on Earth, which makes the Laurisilva an authentic living fossil - a relic from the geological past. Laurisilva means a jungle of laurels, because the leaves of the majority of the wide variety of tree species in this ecosystem have the same characteristics as the laurel: they are evergreen and require both high rainfall and constant temperatures. You will be impressed, too, by the dramatic mountains, with deep ravines that drop into the ocean. And this incredible landscape has been sculpted over centuries by erosion. That much we definitely know because over two million years have elapsed since the last volcanic eruption. Other aspects that will surprise you include the sight of the green valleys, covered with palm trees, the charming rural villages, the impressive cliffs, and the welcoming bays of

black sand, bathed by crystalline waters. Just wait till you see the cultivated terraces, laid out on steep slopes, and you will appreciate the great effort made by the local country folk to build and work them. The local wine is distinctive, and is often accompanied with tapas comprising local cheese, roasted pork or goat meat. Other culinary specialities include almogrote, a cheese spread, and miel de palma, a syrup extracted from palm trees. The inhabitants of La Gomera have a unique way of communicating across deep ravines by means of an amazing whistled speech called Silbo Gomero. This whistled language is indigenous to the island, and its existence has been documented since Roman times. It was invented by the original inhabitants of the island, the Guanches, and Silbo Gomero, adopted by Spanish settlers in the 16th Century, survived after the Guanches died out. When this unique means of communication was threatened with extinction at the dawn of the 21st Century, the government there required all

children to learn it in school. There are plenty of leisure activities, and the Tecina course, which is washed by the ocean waters, will surprise you with its landscape. It is situated in the south, near a small fishing village called Playa Santiago. The course has mild temperatures throughout the year, and features magnificent views of the ocean, Tenerife and the majestic Mount Teide. The marina in the capital of San Sebastián is considered one of the best-equipped in the Canaries, while the port there has a proud history linked to the Discovery of America. It is where Christopher Columbus departed during his epic journey to conquer the new world in 1492. But not until after a planned four-day stopover was extended to one month. He stopped here to replenish his crew’s wine and water, and became romantically involved with Beatriz de Bobadilla y Ossorio, the governor of La Gomera. When he finally sailed, she gave him cuttings of sugarcane, which became the first to reach the New World. And the house in San Sebastián in which he is reputed to have stayed is now a tourist attraction. La Gomera is one of the quieter islands in the Canaries. It’s not your typical all-singing, alldancing mass tourism market, and the restaurants and lowkey bars are usually family-run affairs. So, if you are after that genuine chill-out factor but with lots to take in when looking for a holiday, La Gomera fits the bill.

Still a family affair! Green party seem to have an electric grip on things

Toyota Prius sales booming in Britain THE demand for greener and less-polluting vehicles has reached an all-time high in the UK, with sales booming. Since the start of the year, there has been a 28% increase in motorists searching for greener new cars at a time when we have seen the highest fuel prices on record, with diesel passing the 140pa-litre mark there for the first time. Sales of the Toyota Prius 2011 have shot up 51.5% in the first three months of 2011, and Nissan recently launched their eco-friendly electric Leaf in the UK. The company say they have 550 standing orders. Chris Green (a coincidence, surely), co-founder and Sales Director of Motoring.co.uk said: “Our research on the growing demand for greener

new cars backs up the recent SMMT (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) figures on 2011-plate, newcar registrations. “”They show that less-polluting cars dominate new car sales in 2011 so far, which is partly down to the improvement of reliability and performance. “A number of manufacturers are investing heavily in hybrid electric vehicles as consumers becoming increasingly keen to reduce their motoring costs.” There has never been a better time to buy a fuel-efficient, low-emission car. There are incentives for low-carbon cars, including road tax, company tax and London congestion charges. But you will still need deep pockets. Mr Green added: “In the future, we will see more and more people opting for cars that are cheap to maintain.

How to stop pumping up those driving costs MOTORISTS can save a packet by using ecodriving techniques and making basic checks, such as tyre pressures. Continental Tyres, who conducted a survey into affordable motoring in the light of the sky-high fuel prices, have offered the following tips to keep the cost down. 1. Check the pressure of your tyres regularly 2. Get rid of unnecessary loads 3. Make sure your tyres are properly aligned. This will reduce fuel usage and avoid uneven wear. Local tyre centres will check the alignment for around 25-30 euros 4. Plan unfamiliar journeys to

reduce the chance of getting lost, and check the traffic news 5. Always drive in the highest possible gear for the speed you are doing, but do not let the engine labour 6. Drive within the speed limit because the faster you go, the more fuel you use. And there’s also the risk of a speeding ticket 7. Drive with a little more distance from the vehicle ahead of you to avoid harsh braking 8. Turn on the air-conditioning and heaters (in the UK) only when really needed. The AC conditioner is a pump, and will use excess fuel at low speeds, especially over here. 9. Check out the price of fuel, particularly in Tenerife, because it can vary by as much as 25 cents a litre.

NOWADAYS, we tend to consider the big multi-national car manufacturers as faceless corporations rather than friendly, family firms. So it may come as a surprise for you to learn that quite a few of them still have members of their founding families sitting on the Board of Directors. The longest established are almost certainly the Peugeot family, with four members still on the board after an incredible six generations. Even so, their grip is not quite as strong as the Morgan family over in Malvern, Worcestershire, who still retain total control of the idiosyncratic sports-car makers after three generations. Here’s a fascinating list of those families still tied to the big names: BMW: Harald Quandt, stepson to the Nazi propaganda chief Josef Goebbels, inherited a 30% stake in BMW when his real father, Gunther - Hitler’s wartime “leader of the armaments economy”- died in the 1950s. His half-brother, Herbert, is credited with saving the company, and his daughter, Susanne, still has a 12.5% stake, making her Germany’s richest woman. Ferrari: The company’s major shareholders are Fiat, and have been for several decades. However, 10% of the shares in the world’s most charismatic car company are still controlled by Piero Lardi Ferrari. He is Enzo

Ferrari’s second (and sole surviving) son. His mother was Lina Lardi, Enzo’s long-time mistress. Fiat: The Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino, based in Turin, were founded in 1899 by a group of investors led by Giovanni Agnelli. He died in 1945, but his family still have their hands directly on the power chain, with greatgreat-grandson John Jacob Philip Elkann becoming chairman earlier this year. Ford: The descendants of founder Henry Ford still own a major chunk of the voting shares, although the company are currently run by former Boeing executive Alan Mulally. Ford’s great-grandson, William Clay Ford Jnr, is still chairman, however, having previously been president, CEO and chief operating officer. Morgan: Worcestershire’s oldest sports-car manufacturer, and now one of

Britain’s biggest independent car-makers, were founded by HFS Morgan after he crashed a borrowed Mercedes Benz, causing £28 of damage. The Morgan Motor Company, now led by his grandson, Charles, employ around 160 people, who build 600 cars annually. Porsche: This is a complicated one because Porsche attempted to buy VW, only to find the tables turned on them. But two closely-related families still exercise a strong hold on the fortunes of VWPorsche, and their associated marques, however, because Ferdinand Porsche’s daughter married VW boss Anton Piech in 1928. Peugeot-Citroen: The Peugeot origins go right back to the early 1700s, switching to salt-and-pepper mill manufacture in the 1840s and then bicycles about 20 years later. The present chairman of the company’s supervisory board

is Thierry Peugeot, the sixth generation of the family to be involved intimately in car and bicycle manufacture. Tata: Established in 1945 and creators of what is currently the world’s cheapest car remained under the radar as far as most British enthusiasts were concerned until they purchased Jaguar and Land Rover three years ago. It is now the world’s 19thbiggest car-maker, headed by Ratan Tata, great-grandson of company founder Jamsedji Tata Toyota: Akio Toyoda, grandson of founder Kiichiro Toyoda, is the president and CEO of the Toyota Motor Corporation and joined the company back in 1984. And I bet you didn’t know this: Toyota is so named because the number of strokes required to write the word in Japanese is thought luckier than those needed to write “Toyoda”.

CD TENERIFE look to finish a horrendous season in a little style tomorrow (Saturday). Normally a derby match with arch-rivals Las Palmas would be an occasion to stop the archipelago.

Tenerife seek Derby delight

But in truth, it’s threatening to turn into a damp squib. Some wags may even joke that a damp squid would be more fun. At the time of writing, barely 7,000 tickets have been sold for a ground that can hold nearly 30,000. The apathy can be put down to many factors, but it’s not something I’m going to deal with here. For the true fans, it’s still a massive match and one to enjoy. Last weekend, Tenerife fans said goodbye to Nino, who responded by netting in a pointless draw. A crowd of just over 5,000 were there to show their gratitude to a genuine legend. It was a sorry, sorry sight. But Nino does have one more outing for us and, make no mistake, he will be desperate to finish with a few more goals against the old enemy. It’s also the last match for many of the Tenerife squad, and I wonder how Pablo Sicilia will feel as he lines up against the club he is joining after the match. When you remember that he is from Gran Canaria and is a Tenerife stalwart, and his family have strong ties with Las Palmas … The hosts will give Tenerife the usual “warm” welcome and while their fans will be enjoying Tenerife’s relegation, others will not. Las Palmas boss Nicolas Ortega was very respectful in a press conference this week, saying: “I am honestly disappointed Tenerife are going down. It’s a sad moment for the Canary Islands. The matches between the two clubs are very special.” I cannot agree more. You want to see your rivals fail, of course, but you also miss playing them. Rangers’ fans would be celebrating for a decade if Celtic were relegated, but they would soon miss the derby matches. “We know how it feels to go down” Ortega continued. “It is

a horrible experience and this situation is not pleasant for the team, the players, members of the board and the fans. “So I hope our fans respect that on Saturday. We hope Tenerife do what we did and get back up.” Las Palmas went down seven years ago and had a rough road back. It will be different for CDT. Former captain and legend Cristo Marrero has been around the training ground this week. He is being strongly linked with a return in some sort of coaching capacity. But he was being coy when asked about it: “I’m here to try to help lift the team spirits,” he said. “I want to do some coaching there is no doubt about that. But this week, it’s all about reminding the players what it is like to win a Derby. The fans demand everything, and I’m sure the players will show that.”

CD Tenerife 1 Ponferradina1

Cristo’s return was given an extra boost this week when Pedro Cordero was unveiled as the new director of football. He is in charge of all matters on the field, including the hiring of a manager and backroom staff. Current boss David Amaral has done okay recently but, Cordero is not being drawn on his future, or that of Cristo. “I do not start my job until 30th June, but of course I have some ideas,” he said. “Today, our coach is David Amaral, and he has one year left on his contract. On Saturday, we have a big game against Las Palmas and the coach has to be calm until next week. I want to hear and I want to assess whether he is the right person to lead the project or not.” He added: “The players need to be aware of where they are. And that they are responsible for taking the team to where they will be next season. Morally, they

must know what they have done. “Those who are aware of this, we will have no problems with maybe keeping. The rest? Well I think you know.” I shall address next season next week, but maybe there will not be the wholesale clear-out previously mooted. Midfielder Kitoko seems set to

stay after impressing on loan, while goalie Arragoneses looks like remaining as well. Nino, as we all know, is leaving, and this week his future took a surprise turn. Former manager Jose Luis Oltra is the new boss of Deportivo la Coruña and, in his opening press conference, he confirmed his interest in bringing

Nino to the north of Spain. Watch this space. Finally, this column is not one for giving out betting tips. Especially when it gets all seven wrong. But a DjokovicNadal final in the French Open is begging to be backed at 46. As is Recital each way at 51, or Ronan Parke to win BGT at 5-4.

Division 1

IF proof is needed that the standard of darts improves in the Oasis Fm League, year by year, then look no further.

Bar 180 B Barracudarts Boys Cozy Wanderers Gaffers La Central Nauta A Target Titans Toscales Tornados Yelas

In Division 1, there were no fewer than 12 maximum scores recorded last Friday! And the 180 players joining Barcelona with three perfect strikes were: Mitch twice, (Nauta A), Gary (Gaffers), Andy twice, Walt (La Central), Ashley, Del Boy (Phoenix), Luc (Cafe Rood A), Robbie, Martin (Target Titans) and Dave (Cozy Wanderers). Bar 180 A’s Richard hit the highest finish so far this season with a 119 during a 7-1 win over Barracudarts Boys, and Phil Telf took out a fine 95 in the trebles to claim victory for Toscales Tornados over Target Army.

Cafe Rood A and Phoenix Bar started to flex their muscles as they both triumphed 8-0, while Cozy Wanderers’ perfect start ended with a 44 stalemate against The Pub. Cafe Rood B now sit proudly at the top of Division 2 after bashing Tenerife Sun 71 (Ya Ya!). Marilyns drop to second, although they also have three wins out of three, thanks to their 6-2 success over Hunters. Sundowners’ Alan checked out on 110 but, surprisingly, his team came off secondbest at home to new boys Sunshine Bar, while the Playgirls and the Naturals both won and are now third and fourth respectively.

Match Report

Division 1

PALMS A are on the verge of clinching the Oasis Fm Pool League after a hardfought victory on Amarilla Golf. Terrace Bar A pushed them all the way in a watertight contest, taking the early lead when Adi beat Michael, only for Bungalow to level matters. It set the cat-and-mouse tone for the match, and it was not until the seventh frame that Palms hit the front. The contest still went down to the last frame, when a massive schoolboy error from Mal gifted Graham the frame and the match. Palms will wrap up the title if they can beat Men of Atlantis and Rat Pack over the next few days. Summerlands Superstars’ chase looks in vain. They spanked Rat Pack 8-2, but need a miracle to snatch the spoils. Third-place Tenerife Hammers A edged past Hoops 6-4, despite another poor display from Barry Fritzel. After losing both matches, he remarked: “I must be the unluckiest player in the league.” Chin up mate! Bar 180 B can still finish fourth. Their 6-4 win at current position holders Trap Door gives them something to play for on Tuesday, while the relegation battle is going down to the wire. Men of Atlantis's three points over Legends, coupled with defeats for 8 Ball Massive, Dreamers and Summerland Allstars, makes it very interesting. The Atlantis boys will be targeting a result at Phoenix Knights on Sunday before their final match at Bar 180 B. It’s a tough ask when you throw in the extra match with Palms A, but a draw could see them safe. And 8 Ball Massive have two home matches in which to save their season. They host in-form Toscales on Monday, before a tricky one against Terrace A. Dreamers may yet still need a result at Nauta A, as may Summerlands Allstars at Legends on the final night of the season this Tuesday. Gaffers are Division Two champions! They blitzed Connors 9-1 to take the title, and deservedly, in their first season. They will be joined in the top flight next season by Legends B, who beat Barracuda Hunters 8-2 to seal promotion. The race for third is going all the way the final match, and Bar Tasca will be promoted if

Horoscopes of the week Gemini

(May 22nd-June 21st) Are people in authority making unreasonable demands on you? Feeling stressed? The new moon on Wednesday has given you a new perspective on what you can achieve long term, so don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and lay new foundations. This works well in both work and love. CANCER (June 22ndJuly 23rd) Passionate Mars has connected to the moon, your ruler, and a secret admirer could soon reveal him/herself. But just make sure you don’t confuse the admiration of your talents for love. It’s a fine line, so try not to cross it. Keep a firm focus on everything to ensure your feet stay firmly on the ground. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) The desire for more freedom in your personal and business life is weighing you down. So when new people you meet give you a fresh outlook over how to get what you want, you‘ll take their tips to heart and start the ball rolling over your new approach. Just take your time. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) Slow and steady is the tried and trusted formula, so stick to routines and bide your time. Unexpected professional changes could impact your social standing if you over-react, so take it easy, don’t be phased and you’ll show others you can be cool in a crisis. This will earn you bonus points. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) If someone argues the toss over a

Page 48

financial scenario, don’t lose your cool. You may need to modify plans, but maybe that’s not a bad thing. Don’t rush into anything. This gives you time to re-think emotional situations at home, and maybe it’s time you started to show your feelings more. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) It would appear that you’re flavour of the month and everyone wants a piece of you. But don’t misread signals someone is sending out because it may be wishful thinking on your part. Don’t believe everything you hear this week because someone is out to throw a spanner in the works over your love life. SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) Unexpected volatility rocks your relationships and the more you try to fix it, the more confusing it becomes. The new moon in your opposite sign gives you a fresh perspective on unions of all kinds, so rebuild from the cornerstones and lay new strong and lasting foundations. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Keep your temper in check if someone fails to come through with his/her part of a commitment by showing those in

authority that you’re more than capable of adapting to unexpected changes. Hiccups in relationships or friendships won’t last forever, but you’re still smarting from being let down.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) Don’t be tempted to dig in your heels if things aren’t going your way. It’s all about compromise this week. It’s time to clear up the past where family matters are concerned as the only way to move forward is to let it go. Clearing the air does everyone the power of good. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Communications or travel plans could hit a brick wall, but don’t go off on one. Direct your restless energy into being productive at work. Then, once you’ve mastered that, turn your attentions to smoothing any troubled waters in the home zone. It will perk you both up not end. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Get set for a busy week as duties and responsibilities mount. The phone never seems to stop ringing, and everyone wants you for something or other. On the plus side, it looks like romantic partners are ready to commit, so maybe there’s cause to break out the bubbly. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) You’ll make a lasting impression on those nearest you if you turn on the charm, but that will only grab their attention initially. You‘ve got the intelligence to show them you know what you‘re talking about, so make sure you have a master plan to divulge that will knock them for six in the career zone.
