Tee for Tenerife! Europe’s top ladies are promoting Island as a magnet for golfers A HUGE bid to promote Tenerife as a golfers’ paradise is being launched this week - by Europe’s leading female stars, who have an unusual agenda! They are introducing a new aspect to tournament play via the Tenerife Ladies Match Play event. This newcomer to the Ladies European Tour professional calendar tees off at Golf Las Americas today (Friday), following yesterday’s Pro-Am event there. The format is fundamentally match play, in which each hole is a separate competition. The player with the fewest strokes on an individual hole wins it, and so the one who wins most holes takes the match. In stroke play, the traditional style of golf, players accumulate strokes over the 18 holes. The golfer with the fewest strokes at the completion of the round wins. The idea of this tournament, which finishes on Sunday, is to highlight the Island’s excellence for golfers and courses, and also its ability to host major sporting events That is why it is actually being sponsored jointly by Tenerife Tourism and the Canary Islands Government, with back-up from various other sponsors around the Island. It has received official support from the Royal Spanish Golf Federation and the Canary Islands Golf Federation, as well. Tenerife Tourism Minister José Manuel Bermúdez said at the official opening yesterday (Thursday): “This tournament is part of our objectives towards promoting tourism here, and the sector has been responding positively all year.

Pic: Tenerife Cabildo - Tenerife 2010 Champion Trish Johnson in action.

He stressed the “enormous importance” of the event in the Canary Islands’ tourism strategy in general, and in Tenerife in particular, especially with the huge media coverage, “worth around 25 million euros in terms of the economic impact”. Joan Piferrer, Manager of

Golf Las Americas, added: “We are very proud to host this tournament. We have all worked hard to present the golf course at its best.” This will not be the first international gathering of golf stars in Tenerife because one leg of the men’s European PGA Tour

was staged at the newlybuilt Amarilla Golf course in 1990. Curiously, the Tour has never returned to Tenerife, despite the numerous, upmarket courses which have since sprung up on the Island. But the Ladies Tenerife

Open has been held here as part of their European tour for the past nine years, and is now followed by the current, new-format event. The first Ladies European Tour event in Tenerife, held at Golf del Sur in 2002, was won by Spain’s Raquel Carriedo-Tomas.

It moved on to the Seve Ballesteros-designed course in Buenavista, in the northwest, and then returned to the south, at Costa Adeje (three times), Golf del Sur again and the newly-opened Abama course in 2006. Brits Rebecca Hudson and Continued on page 4.

German E.coli sufferer was taken to a Tenerife hospital A GERMAN holidaymaker in Tenerife, diagnosed with the deadly E.coli strain, was released from hospital after a week, having been given the all-clear it transpires. The 36-year-old person, from Hamburg, was taken to hospital in Santa Cruz on 31st May with diarrhoea and bleeding. Jose Diaz-Flores, Director General of Public Health of the Canary Islands, said the victim had suffered “an infection of the German E.coli O104 strain”. He said the man was discharged on Tuesday “because he was well and evolved favourably”, and Diaz-Flores stressed: “There is no risk of infection in the Canary Islands. “Both the origin of the patient, his symptoms and analytical results, tells us it is 99% certain that he had Germanic E.coli enterohemorrhagic and had picked up the infection in his native country.” Diaz-Flores added: “On Monday, the samples were sent to the reference laboratory, the National Centre for Microbiology and the patient was discharged the following day. “But we must now turn our attentions to the general recommendations concerning hygiene when dealing with food.” Domingo Nunez, Department of Epidemiology in the Canaries, said that although the number of E.coli cases was decreasing, there were 720 cases in the world who had developed complications, and another 2,600 who had the symptoms but suffered no complications. Apart from Tenerife’s

German patient, who recovered, he said that there had been 25 deaths in Germany, while 46 cases had been reported in Sweden, 20 in Denmark, 11 in the UK, six in the Netherlands and one in the Basque country. “All these cases are related to travel to Germany, which means that these patients have been exposed to food contaminated with bacteria,” added Nunez. Nunez said the German sufferer provided Tenerife doctors treating him with information about the food he had eaten at home and added: “This information has been added to the existing

research, for which we thank the German authorities.” Carmen Amela, Spain’s Director General of Public Health, said the E.coli strain had never been detected in the country in the last quarter-century, so the risk of an outbreak of this bacterium “is only associated with someone who comes from Germany”. And with the huge influx of Germans into Spain during the summer holidays, Amela is warning people to reinforce their usual hygiene measures, which consist basically of hand-washing after using the bathroom, and washing vegetables

thoroughly before eating. Meanwhile, Germany has expressed hope that the worst of the killer bacteria outbreak was over with at least 25 people dead and more than 2,600 ill. But the baffled German Government will maintain its warning against eating raw tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers and various sprouts until it finds the cause of the mysterious outbreak. European trade bosses have raised the offer of compensation to 210 million euros (£187m) to those farmers who have suffered heavy losses as a result of scare stories surrounding

the E.coli outbreak. The European Commission initially offered a sum of 150 million euros (£134m) to help growers whose lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers have had to be thrown away, only to be told it was nowhere near enough. European Union agriculture commissioner Dacian Ciolos said in Brussels that the new aid budget would enable farmers claim at least 50% of reference prices for certain produce. The decision was made despite Spanish cucumber farmers demanding 100% of revenues lost after German authorities initially - and

falsely - traced the source of the disease to Spanish produce. Ciolos added that growers who are members of vegetable producer associations would have access to other funding sources, which would allow them to claim “up to 70%” of the value of unsold produce. He also added courgettes and peppers to the cucumbers, tomatoes and lettuce already on the warning list. It is estimated that Spanish vegetable growers have lost some 200m euros a week, with thousands losing their jobs since the German accusations were made.

Tourist sector given jobs boost IT’S uplifting news all round for the Spanish and Tenerife tourism sectors because 7,000 jobs were created during the first four months of the year. They were spread across 105 main city and resort destinations - including Santa Cruz -

and Exceltur, the Alliance for Tourism Excellence, believes the figure could rise to about 10,000 jobs in the whole of Spain. An optimistic Jose Luis Zoreda, Exceltur vice-president, said that if the trend continued, the tourism sector’s new-jobs tally could reach 30,000 by the end of the year. The jobs were concentrated

mainly in the catering sector, followed by entertainment and the associated trade tourist areas, while the accommodation sector showed some positive signs with a slight increase.

Ryanair bag fees increase

Bring back, a numbered seat, one case, one piece of hand luggage, one price it’s all getting a little confusing for me. According to the Daily Telegraph passengers who fly with Ryanair and are travelling with “luggage lighter than 15kg will be charged £20 each way – up from £15, and customers with bags weighing between 15kg and 20kg will be charged £30 each way – up from £25. The cost of carrying a second bag has also gone up, from £35 to £40 each way.” If you are flying to Tenerife you will be charged an additional £5 each way (£70 return) for any item of checked luggage. I hear you asking, why? Well apparently the charges came in at the beginning of this month, interesting I can’t find any info on their ‘news section’ of their website. The increase fees cover the peak summer holiday time – sheer

Page 04

exploitation. The Telegraph continues, “Each year Ryanair increases its baggage charges for travel during peak summer months, although last year’s rises only affected travellers departing in July and August.” So that means this year it’s for longer! I can understand that they don’t want people to take a case, fine. Weight, fuel, time savings etc. But surely then someone should tell these low cost airlines to design an aircraft that will take a one piece of hand luggage 55cm x 40cm x 20cm and 10kg for every bum that has a seat, as opposed to using aircraft with a massive hold, or would that just be too simple. But it gets worse, if you investigate a little further, Ryanairs fees sections lists peak and off peak times, you guessed it, now it’s not just summer holidays, but Christmas 21st -4th January 2012, inclusive that these additional charges apply. So do we think next year they will add the time around the Olympics, Diamond Jubilee, etc, etc?

PRINCE PHILIP started off his 90th birthday celebrations with an evening of military music by massed bands and corps of drums.

The Duke of Edinburgh whose birthday is today (Friday) - took the salute at the annual Household Division beating retreat on Horse Guards Parade, in central London. He then went to a reception at the Guards Museum near St James’s Park. In a recent BBC TV interview, the Duke admits to cutting back on his workload before he reaches his “sell-by date”. “I reckon I’ve done my bit, I want to enjoy myself for a bit now. With less responsibility, less rushing about, less preparation, less trying to think of something to say.

“On top of that your memory’s going, I can’t remember names. Yes, I’m just sort of winding down.” Prince Philip has been the Queen’s husband and consort for more than 60 years and involved with around 800 charities and organisations. It was announced last autumn that he would be lightening his load by giving up a number of his more demanding commitments. They include his patronage

of UK Athletics, City and Guilds of London Institute, the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth and his involvement with a number of high-profile universities. “You don’t really want nonagenarians as heads of organisations which are trying to do something useful. “There is an ageism in this country, as everywhere, and quite rightly so, because I think you go downhill - physi-

cally, mentally and everything.” Sir Miles Hunt-Davis, Philip’s trusted private secretary for 19 years until stepping down from the post last year, said: “Quite deliberately he is getting rid of a lot of his patronages, he is giving up the Chancellorship of Cambridge and of Edinburgh - two major universities and a number of other charities that have taken up quite a lot of his time.”

Tee for Tenerife! Continued from front page. Felicity Johnson, who are involved again this week, won the Costa Adeje event in 2008 and 2009 respectively, while Trish Johnson, also playing at Las Americas, won last year’s event. This new match play/stroke play event, which has a prize fund of 120,000 euros, is reserved for the top 30 Europeanranked professionals and two guests. It replaces the

Tenerife Ladies Open. A must-see for genuine fans is Laura Davies, England’s multi-titled champion who is rated the greatest British female player of all. And South African Lee-Anne Pace, who topped the Ladies European Tour rankings last year, will make it tough for the field. Among the Spanish players are Carlota Ciganda, Tania Elosegui, Emma Cabrera and Paula Marti.

The overall format adds up to bags of excitement because every hole over the opening two days adds up to pressure, and is vital to each individual. The prestige tournament is being televised in 208 countries, and will also have a significant presence on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Today (Friday) sees 16 individual match play clashes, with the winners meeting tomorrow to whittle the

final line-up down to eight competitors. Sunday’s final round of 18 holes stroke-play will then see the leading players battling it out in traditional fashion for the trophy and title. A bonus for spectators, apart from watching some of the greatest players in the world, is that parking is free. So if you are a golf fan, make sure you don’t miss out on this spectacular three-day bonanza.

Adeje manufacturing carpets

Adeje Ayuntamiento are preparing for the Corpus Christi festival. Corpus Christi is a Catholic feast, honouring the Eucharist, and, as such it does not commemorate a particular event in Jesus’s life. It is held on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday or, in some places, on the following Sunday. In Tenerife, Corpus Christi the religious festival is famous and traditionally celebrated with floral carpets laid in the streets. The Soil Tapestries in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento (Town

Square) in La Orotava are particularly noteworthy, where a very large carpet, or tapestry, of different coloured volcanic soils, covers the Plaza del Ayuntamiento. These soils are taken from the Parque Nacional del Teide, and after the celebration, are returned, to preserve the National Park. The celebration of Corpus Christi in Orotava has been declared of Important Cultural Interest among the official Traditional Activities of the Island. In the municipality of Adeje the Department of Culture, headed by Epifanio Díaz

10 June 2011 - 16 June 2011

EACH YEAR more than 15,000 victims of road accidents involve vehicles that transport goods or passengers. For this reason and taking into account that 90% of the information needed for driving is visual and that large vehicles are invisible at night to other drivers, a new initiative called V-23 has been introduced. Vehicles will have to incorporate a new sign with reflecting boundary marking, called V-23, which will be seen, in low visibility, on the perimeter of the back and sides of such vehicles. The addition of this new sign for large vehicles is the subject of an information campaign, from the National Road Transport in collaboration with the Directorate General of Land Transportation, Ministry of Public Works and the Traffic Department of the Ministry of the Interior.

The new initiative aims to inform and promote road safety. The campaign was presented by Ovidio de la Roza, and, Rafael Barbadillo, of the National Road Transport Department. The new rules lay down that long and heavy vehicles for the transport of goods are to be registered from July 10th, 2011 and they shall carry a distinctive reflective approved boundary sign for the outline of the vehicle, in order to help other drivers identify those vehicles, allowing them to adapt their driving to the circumstances and protect users. For heavy transport vehicles, registered before that date, the installation of the sign will be voluntary. This new sign will be mandatory for vehicles wider than 2.10 m and length greater than 6m, among which are the following categories: Motor vehicles with at least four wheels used to transport goods, with a maximum mass exceeding 7.5 tonnes,

However, it is advisable to install such a sign, on a voluntary basis, in other motor vehicles with at least four wheels used to transport goods or people with more than eight seats, excluding the driver. The new legislation is thought to reduce road accidents involving heavy goods vehicles by at least 30%. The marking needs to consist of a regular strip or a series of strips of reflective material (tape) placed in such a way to identify the outline, or otherwise, length and overall width of a motor vehicle or combination of vehicles or loads. Made with reflective tape, certified and easy installation. The width of the strips is 50 mm, white or yellow for the sides of the vehicle, or red or yellow if the rear.

European ‘tour’ pushes Spanish housing sector

BEATRIZ CORREDOR, the Government’s Secretary for Housing, highlighted the potential of the market in Spain to Russians on Wednesday. She was in Moscow, hoping to impress the country’s investors and intermediaries on the fifth stop of her European tour to promote the Spanish real estate market. It began in London on 4th May and moved on to Amsterdam, Paris and

Frankfurt. Corredor and State-run company “Invest in Spain” will complete their mission in Sweden, aiming to have strengthened investor confidence in the Spanish housing market throughout Europe. The latest figures show that 20% more properties in Spain were purchased by Russians last year, accounting for 6.94% of the total number of properties bought by foreigners. The Russians were fourth only to the British, French and Germans, and their tourist figures relating to Spain grew by 43.4% to more than

600,000 in 2010. The Spanish Government’s intention is informing foreign investors, intermediaries and agents about the trends of the main pointers in the Spanish real estate sector. These include prices and the stock of available properties which is starting to decline as well as the legislative reforms being implemented by the Government to strengthen the already-sound legal framework in Spain. The new laws will guarantee the security and transparency of transactions involving the buying and selling of properties there.

Arona’s new bin service for hotels ARONA Council is distributing containers to hotels throughout the area for the collection of certain waste. The new service will provide the municipality with more efficient removal of specific waste removal. Sixty yellow containers with a capacity of 1,100 litres, are being delivered to

47 hotels, and this sector, says Environment Councillor Antonio Sosa, “is one of the largest generators of waste”. These hotels are all keen to make the collection of containers operate on a voluntary basis, although the council has allocated about 225 bins because the system will soon become obligatory in all hotels. The service follows demands by the hoteliers

themselves, and Sosa said: “This new resource is not only important for the sustainability and environmental conservation, but also increases the rate of collection of packaging. That will result in paying less money to deposit waste.” It also provides a gradual introduction of new wastecollections involving electrical and electronic appliances and the removal of graffiti and posters among others.

as bringing awareness to the handicrafts, hand-made products and crafts from the Canary Islands. Others could be involved in the ongoing Southern Rail project, and the studies on its environmental impact.

Water centres are making a big splash now HAVE you ever envied those wind-surfers, skimming along on the horizon at a rapid rate of knots, and fancied a crack at it yourself? Well, the Cabildo-owned Cidemat (Tenerife Island Water Sports Centre), is available for that very purpose - and many other aqua sports - this summer. It is targeting youngsters in the main, but adults can also get involved, and there are 1,159 places on offer across centres in Valleseco (Santa Cruz) and La Galera (Candelaria). The campaign has already started, and those interested can sign up via www.deportestenerife.net for introductory courses in swimming, sailing aqua-fit-

ness and water sports. Other applications must be made in person at Cidemat, Valleseco. The main focus is on sailing, with 408 places, distributed among the junior class, from Monday to Friday. Older children and adults will be catered for from Monday to Thursday, while the grown-ups can follow intensive weekend courses. In addition, there are scheduled kite-surfing lessons, wind-surfing, canoeing, water-skiing and diving. Swimming lessons are also available for all age groups (infants, children and adults), with aqua-fitness for adults. Cidemat embraces all age groups, and provide facilities such as locker rooms, locker facilities, workshops, classrooms and a pool for learner divers.

CANDELARIA textile company Arealonga, which specialises in uniforms and industrial embroidery, will soon form part of the Tenerife Moda group. The company is to join forces with the Tenerife fashion group, promoted by the Cabildo, to further develop this sector. Efrain Medina, Acting Minister of Economic Development, trade and employment, says: “This com-

pany is now one of the largest in the Canaries in terms of industrial embroidery, so its ability to export and expand is fully viable.” Along with Tenerife Moda programme director José Eugenio Sánchez, he recently visited Arealonga, and they were impressed with owner Fidel Castro’s innovation, hard work and investment. Medina said his department would help to promote joint action between existing large and small workshops between Candelaria, Arafo, Guimar and El Rosario, working together

as a team so that everyone gained. The Cabildo has put its full weight behind this group of companies, whose aim is to achieve a competitive and export service. Medina added that several meetings were planned immediately to decide on how to present the industrial embroidery business to different sectors related to the textile industry in the Canaries. Tenerife Moda has made great efforts in recent years to create a strong brand

image, both individually and globally. It has positioned itself well in an industry that brings together some special characteristics that differ from company to company. The group now consists of Tenerife Moda swimwear, children’s-wear, women’s-wear, urban and sportsgear, underwear and lingerie, home decor, accessories, jewellery and footwear. It also has a sector in charge of Carnival costumes, fashion shows and hair and beauty, displaying incredible creativity and talent.

Troubled care Prince Charles makes it home firm to face to face with Shrek axe 3,000 jobs SHREK got his prince at the Royal Gala for the latest movieturned-musical.

THE UK’s largest care home operator has revealed plans to axe 3,000 jobs. It is the latest blow for staff at troubled Southern Cross Healthcare, which lost £311m in the six months to March 31. The business cares for 31,000 residents at more than 750 care homes across the UK and employs 44,000 people. Southern said the proposals to slash the workforce by nearly 7% were part of a long-term strategy launched 18 months ago, and were not linked to recent financial troubles. This is the start of a disaster for the residents as well as a kick in the teeth for the staff. There have been concerns about how company’s current woes will affect residents. Paul Kenny, general secretary of the GMB trade union, called for the

Government to provide financial support. He said: “This is the start of a disaster for the residents as well as a kick in the teeth for the staff.” A Department for Health statement said: “It is for Southern Cross, its landlords and those with an interest in the business to put in place a plan that stabilises the ownership and operation of the care homes. Southern said it was committed to maintaining care for staff and minimising redundancies, and expected the whole process to be completed by October. The company is underpaying its rent by a third until the end of September in a move to buy time for a longterm solution. As well as rising rent bills, it has also faced a drop in fees as fewer councils placed residents with the company. Councils and the NHS account for 70% of the firm’s residents.

Shrek The Musical opens next week at the Royal Theatre in London, but Prince Charles got a preview of the show, whose proceeds are going to The Prince’s Foundation For Children And The Arts. Many of the productions on the West End were, like Shrek, originally successful films. The Lion King has been running for over a decade and The Sound of Music, Billy Elliot and Ghost have all been hailed successes. The formula doesn’t always work, though. Spiderman had many problems when it opened in America and didn’t live up to the hype. And Shrek itself had mixed reviews when it ran on Broadway. However, the show has now been tweaked and Nigel Harman, Nigel Lindsay, Richard Blackwood and Amanda Holden have been cast to pull in the crowds. Alistair Smith, deputy editor of The Stage newspaper said the reason so many shows

NISSAN has unveiled a multi-million-pound pledge to build the latest of its models at its Sunderland plant, in a move which will protect UK jobs. Nissan claims the new Qashqai project will see it spend £192m in Britain, safeguarding 6,000 jobs both directly and indirectly through the UK supply chain. The factory makes 1,200 of the current Qashqai model every day and it is

take their lead from Hollywood is simple economics. He said: “It’s very expensive to put a musical on in the West End - we’re talking millions of pounds, and you want

to make that as safe as possible. “There are a number of ways of doing this. One is to have star names in it and the other is to have a brand that people already know.”

Lindsay, who stars as Lord Farquaad, said the musical isn’t just a replica of the film. “It doesn’t top the film but it takes the film and pushes it somewhere else, which I think is really exciting,” he said. Holden, who plays Princess Fiona, said: ‘Nigel (Lindsay) said the best thing when we came into the theatre: ‘The audience already loves us, so it’s downhill from now!’” The Royal Gala performance marks the beginning of an ongoing relationship between DreamWorks and The Prince’s Foundation. The producers will work closely with the charity to develop jointly a new educational project that aims to introduce young people to the art of musical theatre. Jeremy Newton, chief executive of the foundation, said he was looking forward to a long partnership with the show. “This is much more than just a single performance,” he said. “We will combine our knowledge and experience to run activities that will inspire, challenge and develop those children who have had very little access to the arts.”

Qashqai project currently the ninth best-selling car in the UK. Prime Minister David Cameron said: “This investment from Nissan is fantastic news and a great demonstration of the strength and vitality of the UK car industry. “That future manufacturing and R&D has been secured is a tribute to the skill, expertise and hard work of Nissan’s UK workforce.” This investment from

Nissan is fantastic news and a great demonstration of the strength and vitality of the UK car industry. It follows almost a million sales of the current model of the Qashqai, which is the highest-volume car produced in the UK with export levels of around 80%. The first stage of development will see the new version of the car styled at Nissan’s European Design

Centre in Paddington, London. Once the design is finalised, engineers from the Nissan Technical Centre Europe in Cranfield, Bedfordshire will take hold of the project. The completed car will be built in the company’s Sunderland plant. Each Qashqai produced has 3,779 parts, of which 83.6% come from one of 224 UK suppliers.

NSPCC-backed Iconic movie costumes App to stop up for grabs at auction Cyber-bullying A NEW PHONE app is being launched with the aim of putting an end to cyber-bullying of children via texts and mobiles. The Block’em app was thought up by Helen Perry, who was herself subjected to harassing calls on her mobile as an adult. “I found it all very unpleasant, as an adult, and I couldn’t stop looking at the messages,” she said. “Then I started to imagine what it would be like for a child to experience it.” She and friend Stephen Anderson created the app to block phone calls and texts from specific numbers so that the owner of the phone can keep their number. The person making the unwanted contact does not know they are being blocked. The app, priced £1.79, can be downloaded from the Block’em website and is, according to mother-of-three Ms Perry, easy to use. “The idea is that a child in a

bedroom with a mobile phone should feel safe and secure, not threatened,” she said. “With this app, they can just enter the number they don’t want calling and it’s blocked. “They can always unblock the number at a later date.” The app is aimed at children between the age of 11 and 15 and the idea is being backed by the NSPCC ,with 70% of the profits from the sale going back to the children’s charity. Cyber-bullying is considered more of a problem among girls than boys, according to the Home Office’s British Crime Survey. One in 10 girls between the ages of 13 and 15 now claim to have been bullied either through email or mobile phones. The study also revealed that the average parent believed harassment and intimidation of their child started as early as the age of eight.

Monroe’s subway dress from The Seven Year Itch, Garland’s blue cotton dress and one of her pairs of ruby red slippers from The Wizard of Oz are among the 3,500 items up for sale. Barbra Streisand’s sleeveless gold and jewelled gown from Hello, Dolly, said to be the most expensive dress ever made for a film, will also be on offer. The collection is owned by actress Debbie Reynolds, who starred in such films as Singing’ in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown. The 79-year-old said: “I started collecting at the MGM auction in 1970. “At that time, the people that owned the studio decided they liked real estate, they were not interested in any of the memorabilia. “They were just throwing it away. The music went under the freeway.” Joseph Maddalena, CEO of

celebrity memorabilia auction house Profiles in History, says the collection is unparalleled. “These are the greatest cos-

tumes and artifacts that survived all of film history, they are here,” he said. Mr Maddalena believes the

top item in the collection is Monroe’s dress from The Seven Year Itch. “In 1999, the dress that Marilyn wore when she sang ‘happy birthday Mr. President’, she wore it for three minutes in Madison Square Garden and it sold for 1.4 million,” he said. “This should do better than that and this should set a world record.” Reynold’s ultimate dream was to house the collection in a museum her plans fell through. As a result she decided to sell it. “I’m a fan of all of these great stars and I wanted to save their moment for a museum for the future. “I did not reach that goal and that makes me sad, but these things will be shared with people that love the stars as much as I do.” There are 11 Monroe dresses in the collection, costumes from the films Cleopatra and National Velvet worn by Elizabeth Taylor, plus Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp bowler. The outfits will be auctioned in a two-part sale later this month and in December.

Performance is key for Gruffalo author

THE GRUFFALO author Julia Donaldson has been unveiled as the new Children’s Laureate, taking over from illustrator Anthony Browne. The 62-year-old. who was born in London but lives in Glasgow, says she will “relish” the role. She said she thinks performance is the key to children’s enjoyment of books. “I’m a kind of drama and music person really. I wrote songs for years before I wrote books. “When I do author visits I get children to act out my stories. I think that is really helpful to children,” she said. Julia Donaldson has written more than 120 books including Tiddler and The Snail And The Whale, and teenage novel Running On The Cracks. Her most famous work, The Gruffalo, which tells the story

Page 16

of how a mouse outwits the mythical creature, has sold millions of copies. An animated film version was nominated for an Oscar last year. Donaldson said she was looking forward to becoming an “advocate” for reading and was not worried it would get in the way of her writing. “Luckily I was quite productive before I knew about this so I got a couple of texts finished and there are more on the way, so I don’t think the public will notice any gaps,” she said. She added she wanted to “explore the ways performance can help children enjoy reading and grow in confidence” and was thinking of planning “a big public performance” to mark the end of her stint in the role. Donaldson was presented with the children’s laureate medal and a £15,000 bursary cheque at an event in central London.

Royal Mail sell-off set to move step closer THE PRIVATISATION of the Royal Mail could begin this summer, as the proposals formally allowing the sell-off are expected to be passed by MPs. They will vote later on the plans, which protect the socalled universal postal service in its current form for at least the life of the current Parliament. The Post Office network will remain unchanged, and the Government will assume responsibility for the Royal Mail pension scheme’s £8.4bn deficit. Ed Davey, minister for postal affairs, said the proposals “safeguard the future of both Royal Mail and the Post Office - two cornerstones of British life”. Despite those guarantees, the unions are still warning of an uncertain future for the postal service. Billy Hayes, general secretary of the Communication Workers Union, said: “The fact of the matter is the British public don’t want to see the

Royal Mail privatised. “Vince Cable is flogging this company to the very people he denounced at the Liberal party conference - the spivs, the speculators and those who just want to make a fast buck.” Royal Mail has been faring relatively well in recent years, although the latest results saw a 73% fall in profits and a continued reduction in mail volumes. Richard Hooper, who advised the Government to privatise Royal Mail after leading a review in the postal service, predicted mail volumes would fall 40% in the next five years. But he believes private investment is the best way of preserving the ‘universal service’.

Mr Hooper said: “In order to maintain the universal service the finances of the Royal Mail need to be stabilised and made more robust. “The reason for this is the coming of e-mail, the coming of the internet and mobile phone texting has significantly eroded letter volumes.” The problem is not unique to the Royal Mail - across Europe other companies are having to cut costs, modernise equipment and come to terms with a reduced demand for mail deliveries. Despite their tough talk, the unions have already agreed to work with the Royal Mail in cutting 8,000 jobs a year until 2013. Many experts say further cuts will be needed before

the company is a viable proposition. Rob Wotherspoon, who works for the Royal Mail in Bristol, is concerned privatisation will provide uncertainty for his colleagues and their customers. “Me and other postal workers feel that we provide an important service to the public, rural communities and small businesses,” he said. “We think it’s too risky to gamble with that by introducing a private company that’s only going to be interested in the bottom line.” The Government has so far not said if it has a buyer in mind for the Royal Mail. Dutch company TNT was previously linked to investing in the company, but is now undergoing a restructuring and demerger. A private equity firm could be tempted and even a management buyout is a possibility. Whatever happens the staff will be given a stake in the new private company, even if the future for many of them seems far from certain.

No need to hunt for these Podencos THE Podenco Canario, a hunting dog of Egyptian and North African origin, dates back about 7,000 years and is the perfect animal for rabbit hunting, thanks to a prodigious nose, plus a keen sight and sharp hearing. They are mainly tracker dogs but, sadly, many of

them are abandoned when they can no longer hunt. Their owners tend to starve them because, they believe, it makes them hunt better. And it is a common sight to see emaciated Podencos roaming the streets and wasteland on the Island, having strayed from their owners, or been dumped by them. Accion del Sol have around 50 rescued Podencos at their Granadilla dog refuge, all of which have been nursed back to health and are now living their lives in a purpose-built

area. There, they have space to run, hunt and play freely together, but they are often overlooked as pets because of their hunting instincts. Yet they are very suited for rehoming to people with fincas or large gardens, so if you are interested in adopting a Podenco, then please call the refuge on 922 778 630 for more details. They can make loyal and gentle pets in a similar way to the greyhound, and you can see more pictures of Podencos at Accion Del Sol by following this link to their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ media/set/?set=a.207183219 315978.55513.1000007290424 60&l=005a0af56e Please visit Accion del Sol anyway if you are looking to adopt a dog.

Julia McKenzie returns as Agatha Christie’s famous sleuth in this brand new episode, adapted from Christie’s novel Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?. When he becomes the sole witness to a dying man (David Buchanan)’s enigmatic last words, bored would-be adventurer Bobby Attfield (Sean Biggerstaff) teams up with beautiful socialite Frankie Derwent (Georgia Moffett) and family friend Miss Marple (McKenzie) to solve the riddle the words posed. Bobby’s determination to find the truth is

strengthened when someone tries to kill him, and the trio realise that a murderer is at large. A trail of clues leads them to Castle Savage and the group manage to charm an invitation to stay there. When Marple, Frankie and Bobby arrive, they soon uncover a hotbed of stifled emotion, treachery and poisonous deceit. Miss Marple’s search reaches into some dark corners as she observes the strange residents of the castle, including the otherworldly Sylvia Savage (Samantha Bond), her

provocative daughter Dorothy (Hannah Murray), music teacher Roger Bassington (Rafe Spall), controlling psychiatrist Dr Nicholson (Rik Mayall), Nicholson’s wife Moira (Natalie Dormer) and solemn butler Wilson (Richard Briers). Marple tries to untangle the riddle and uncovers evidence which points to another murder - can she find the truth before evenmore people die? Also starring Mark Williams, Helen Lederer, Freddie Fox and Warren Clarke.

Fisherman’s Friends

group of old friends from the small fishing village of Port Isaac turned their hobby of singing together into a musical sensation. They have received considerable acclaim for their songs, which are a mixture of ancient seafaring tales and wry observations on modern life and the changing times in Port Isaac. After being discovered, the group’s lives turned into a whirlwind of festival tours, TV appearances, radio spots and live concerts – although they kept their

day jobs. Cameras follow the Fisherman’s Friends as they work through a summer in showbiz and deal with their new-found fame. As the pressures of touring begin to tell, how will their decades-old friendship hold up? Lobster fisherman Jeremy talks about how the group falling out could be the biggest tragedy of all, and reveals that he would rather give it all up than have that happen. Will his words come back to haunt him?

10.35pm, ITV ITV1 presents a fascinating new documentary which looks at the incredible rise to fame of ten friends from North Cornwall who were spotted singing old sea shanties a cappella on a quayside and ended up signing a million-pound record deal. Jon Cleave – the group’s moustachioed unofficial spokesman – narrates the incredible story of how the

The Choir That Rocks

6:00pm ........................BBC News 6:30pm .......................... Weather

9pm, ITV1 ITV1 presents a brand new three-part documentary series following the Rock Choir. This entertaining programme takes a look at five months in the life of the biggest and arguably the most successful amateur choir in the country. The Rock Choir has over 8,000 members who sing uplifting rock and pop music across the country every week, from Glasgow to Bournemouth. The show follows founder Caroline Redman-Lusher as

Page 34

she undertakes her biggest challenge ever - to get all 8,000 members of the choir together for the first time ever to perform at London’s Wembley Arena. To make this happen, new choirs have to be launched in new parts of the country, which means some serious hard work. The series features a cast of compelling characters and tells the story of how powerful and inspirational music can be, as it brings people from all walks of life together.

Everyone from plumbers to secretaries joins in to share a unique and emotional experience. In the first episode, news of the proposed concert travels fast among the members. The Rock Choir needs to launch a new branch in Yorkshire but is Yorkshire ready for them? Choir leaders Stef and Nic try to drum up support in a York shopping centre with an impromptu performance - but will it bring in the new members they need?

Furnishings on a budget

A UK buyer shortage drags on house prices HOUSE PRICES have fallen at their sharpest annual rate in 18 months, according to the latest figures from mortgage lender, Halifax. In a further sign of weakness on the property market prices rose only 0.1% during May, taking the average just past the £160,000 mark. An increase of 0.2% had been expected. It means that when the market’s performance as a whole over the last three months is examined, prices tumbled 4.2% - the biggest fall since October 2009.

Page 38

Concerns for growth have driven the Bank of England’s decisions this year to leave the emergency base rate of interest of 0.5% on hold. Despite the rate being historically low, mortgage provision is poor. Recent data showed mortgage approvals fell in April to just half their long-run average before the financial crisis of 90,000 per month. Howard Archer, economist at IHS Global Insight, said: “The fact that Halifax reported that house prices could only rise fractionally in May after a particularly sharp drop in April reinforces our view that further weakness lies ahead.”

Make your own Fathers Day card

I MENTIONED in my last article about my client who travelled virtually the whole Island by bus, and spent hours building his own furniture to save a few euros. So this week I have decided to write about the cheaper ranges I have available, and they all come ready-built! Sometimes, it is necessary to furnish on a budget because the client has already spent a lot on the property itself and all the associated costs. Or because the property is considered a business, and there is a budget to adhere to. If the client does not intend to use the property, and it is just for rental, this may also affect the decision on how much to spend on the interior. In many cases, people just want to get the property up and running and earning it’s keep! At the moment, we are furnishing several properties in a budget range, which works out

Halifax housing economist Martin Ellis said it was coming under pressure from low earnings growth, higher taxes, rising inflation and concerns about the outlook for jobs and growth. “These factors are probably constraining demand and applying some downward pressure on prices,” he said. However, he said a modest economic recovery and record low interest rates should help stabilise prices later in the year. Many economists expect demand for property to remain muted as a result of the squeeze on finances and economic growth being weaker than hoped for.

at approximately 3,000 euros for the full inventory for a one-bedroom place. This includes sofa bed, all the furniture, the curtains, lights, mirrors and pictures. The property is ready to use, and the delivery and fitting of all the items is included in that price. The standard of all the items is more than adequate for rental use, and with clever use of colour in curtains, cushions etc, the appearance of the finished property is not unduly compromised. The budget range is available in several styles as well - a Mexican-inspired rustic look, wrought iron, and more modern lines. In all cases, the sofa bed and beds are of medium

quality (not the cheapest available). As we have discussed in this column before, cheap can sometimes be a false economy if it all has to be replaced in a year! Ultimately, the ideal scenario is that if renters like the property so much that they specifically want to return there, it means the owners can then build up a core of regular clients. How the property is furnished, and an adequate inventory plays a large part in this. So, if you are working to a budget, come and speak to us at Deco Nuevo, and we can tailor-make a package for you at no extra cost.

Even if the dad in your house isn’t a shirt-and-tie kind of guy, he’s sure to love this stylish Father’s Day card. Total Time Needed: 30 Minutes or less Materials Decorative scrapbook paper Glue / Scissors Instructions To make one, first cut a 4by 12-inch rectangle from a piece of decorative scrapbook paper and fold it in half to create a double-layer 4- by 6-inch rectangle. Form the collar by cutting 2 matching 1-inch-long horizontal slits about 1 inch below the fold. Fold over the 2 flaps as shown, then glue them down with a 5-inch-long tie shape cut from another piece of decorative paper glued between them. Glue a pair of small buttons to the collar. Once the glue has dried, lift the bottom front of the card and write a Father’s Day greeting inside.

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

Dear David, My gorgeous green leafed tomatoes that I’m growing in a pot seem to have just given up the ghost, some leaves are yellow and wilting and on another plant it’s like a dry snail trail and I’ve got one tiny green tomatoe to show for my efforts. Do you have any suggestions? Dave Edwards, Valle San Lorenzo Dear Dave, It sounds like your tomatoes well and truly have a few pests. I think there are two things going on here. One, the yellowing leaves is the soil quality and the trail you describe are a pest called ‘leaf miners’ perhaps if we tackle the soil first. Tomatoes get viruses, they are very susceptible, the only way to lessen this is to buy disease resistant plant varieties. All of the leaves that are badly yellow, black and wilted cut off. Tomatoes suffer from magnesium deficiency. Now you can go and buy a chemical based spray and feed or you can try spraying them with Epsom Salts. Dissolve ½ oz in a pint of water (20g/litre) and spray each day for a week.

If you decide to plant a further crop of plants, buy either the best seeds you can, or best plants and ensure the soil into which they are planted is fresh, with a mixture of organic material. Now the little miner devils, they leave trails which often blister. They are tiny flies that lay eggs on the leaves, which hatch about one week later. The Larvae are grubs about 1cm long, usually white in colour, and feed on the tissue between the leaf surfaces. This creates the distinctive mined trails across the leaf surface.As larvae grow the mined trails become wider. You can treat them chemically with an appropriate product from the garden centre or if you’re still trying the organic route regularly inspect plants all year round, remove and destroy infested leaves, remove any heavily infested plants, hang yellow sticky traps to monitor the fist sign of the flies. Good luck. David

This week in the garden... My pumpkin seed that I planted a number of weeks ago have achieved mixed results. There were six seeds in the packet. I planted them in two separate medium pots and due to space constraints kept one on a wall and one at ground level. I’ve kept them moist as directed, but, only one seed seems to have germinated, it’s about two inches tall. So, think I’ll plant another few as I definitely don’t want to be paying shop prices for a pumpkin for Halloween. I need to get back in the

mindset of ‘little and often’ sowing vegetables at regular intervals means that you have a constant supply throughout the summer. These means that there won’t be a glut and you can harvest the plants when they are young and tender. Beetroot, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, lettuce, pea, radish and spinach can all be sown in succession. I’ve planted three strawberry plants in a hanging basket. They struggled for the first few days, but now with a little sunshine and water they’re coming on leaps and bounds. I’ve put them in a basket away from the garden pests and they take up no space at all, you can easily put them on your balcony. These have bright

pink flowers, but I’m not sure what variety they are. My next door neighbour has planted rows and rows of corn and it appears to have grown

almost overnight, unfortunately I don’t have the space, but if you do have the room, an easy, and tasty crop to cultivate.

Potted beans When I was at school I can remember growing runner beans in a jar of water with blotting paper! Runner beans are very easy to grow, and benefit from being sown individually. Put one seed in one pot and cover with compost, if you want them to germinate quickly then

cover with a bit of cling film, this will keep heat in and reduce drying out. Plant a few seeds and then with just a few plants you can plant them in a large pot, and stake with some canes. So even if you don’t have a massive space you can still grow delicious green beans.

CARL PATTISON from Robot, answers your hair questions Email: carl.pattison@canarianweekly.com

Extensions… FOR many years I’ve been a nonbeliever, after seeing so many people’s hair damaged beyond repair, leaving bald patches and broken hair.

But then I was introduced to a range of extensions which were very different. It seems before that the majority of extensions were too thick, the bonds were too heavy or large and the hair was poor quality, which resulted in knotting, thus to bald patches and damage. So I set out to find a range that didn’t give me these problems. Finally, I discovered a type I have confidence in, which I can use not only to create length and volume but to create styles that were once only achievable after years of growing the clients’ natural hair. I love sending out clients from the salon with not only a new look but, usually, a new colour as well. Their faces and delight tell me all I need to know … that I can offer this service without having to worry about the effect that some inferior extension systems can have on the hair and scalp. This doesn’t mean extensions are easy to look after and maintain, but, with the right care and attention, you can expect to have a fabulous head of hair for up to four months. It’s then that these extensions are removed and rebonded to use again immedi-

Page 40

ately or at a later date, as you require. Thus, the second application of these extensions can be carried out using the original hair, but at half the price of the first application because the hair can be reused at least two times if needed. Caring for your new hair isn’t easy, but once you get into a routine, the extensions become “part of you”. The most damage I see is from incorrect brushing when wet, because it’s then that the hair (as your own natural hair) is at its most fragile. Extensions should be left out to dry naturally if possible or, if not, on a gentle heat setting on your hairdryer. Hair irons and tongs can be used, but only if you are careful not to touch the bonds as this will cause them to become loose. The amount of extensions required depends on many factors: if you have thicker hair, then you’re going to need more than, say, if you only want to extend your fringe area to create a bob, for exam-

ple. A full head normally consists of 120-160 extensions; a half-head to give volume uses only 60-80. It all depends on the look you require. Don’t think of extensions only as the ‘Katie Price’ look because they can look natural and normally, if done correctly, undetectable. This salon service requires an in-depth consultation with your stylist, but after explaining the ins and outs to clients, we don’t always end up doing them. It is down to many factors, including hair condition, results required and, often, if I don’t believe clients are going to be bothered to genuinely look after them. If you are in any doubts as to what extensions can do, then think again. Gone is the era of the ‘Barbie doll’ look, so forget big and blonde nylon-looking hair and imagine any style you wish to create now being possible.

BRITAIN has one of the worst records among developed countries for diagnosing brain tumours in children, according to new research. It can take as much as three times longer to get a correct diagnosis in the UK compared to the US and Canada, researchers from a campaign aiming to raise awareness of the symptoms have said. The Headsmart initiative is aiming to increase knowledge of the symptoms among parents and GPs, in the hope of getting a quicker diagnosis, saving lives and stopping sufferers from being disabled as a result of a tumour. The condition is the leading cause of cancer deaths in children, but the symptoms are often mistaken for other more minor problems, meaning vital treatment time is lost. Professor David Walker from the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre at the University of Nottingham said: “There are two risks with delayed diagnosis; one is early death and the other one is greater brain injury.

Head smart “So the longer the delay between symptom onset and diagnosis, the greater the risk of early death and the greater the risk of brain injury which may not subsequently fully recover.” Neil and Angela Dickson, whose daughter Samantha died from a brain tumour which was not correctly diagnosed for nine months, now run a charity in her name and have helped fund Headsmart. They have been running the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust for 14 years and regularly hear stories of brain tumours not being diagnosed quickly enough, often with tragic consequences. Mrs Dickson said: “We were surprised that this is the second biggest cancer and it kills more adults and children under 40 than any other cancer, and yet there is not enough attention from the larger charities to do more about it.” Around 500 children and

young people are diagnosed with brain tumours every year and a total of a quarter of all childhood cancers occur in the brain. The problem for doctors is the symptoms are different depending on the child’s age. Ryan Lee’s symptoms were initially thought to be part of being a grumpy teenager. But three weeks after he was finally diagnosed with a brain tumour, he was in a wheelchair. Ryan, from Derby, died in 2009. His parents now accept that prior to the diagnosis he was displaying many of the key signs. His mother Deb said: “If the schools knew more of the signs and symptoms to look for I think they would have told us that Ryan was having a lot more of these issues beforehand, and we may have taken him to the doctor a lot sooner.” The information contained in the Headsmart posters and leaflets is also available online at headsmart.org.uk.

Salon defends makeovers for the young pre-teens A beauty salon offering makeovers and facials for girls as young as one year old has sparked outrage among campaigners over the sexualisation of children. Trendy Monkey’s salon in Brentwood, Essex, caters only for the under-13s. Treatments include fruit smoothie facials for £5, mini pedicures, manicures or make-up application at £7 each, hair ‘up-dos’ for £5-£10 and a shampoo, haircut and styling for £21. This is outrageous - it is giving children a complex about the way they look from the age of one. Girls are also being offered

“princess parties” where they will be picked up in a pink limousine and brought to the salon to “have all their little treatments with their friends”. The salon was opened by Mick Norcross from ITV reality show The Only Way Is Essex, which follows the lives of glamour-obsessed young people. Despite concerns that pampering youngsters in adult ways could take away their childhood, Trendy Monkeys owner Michelle Devine defended her business. She said: “There’s no sexualisation of kids involved - all we are doing is just having harmless fun and making children feel like little princesses. “The most extreme thing the girls can have done is to have temporary butterfly tattoos. Everyone who has a

little girl will love it.” Earlier this week, a report backed by the Government called for measures to protect children’s innocence, including controlling their access to inappropriate clothing, and raunchy pop videos. The Bailey Report, compiled by Mothers’ Union chief executive Reg Bailey called for a number of measures to protect children, including controlling access to clothing, adult content on mobile phones and some advertising. But Ms Devine insisted that it is all just “playful make believe”. She added: “Where better to launch this exciting new project in Brentwood, now a name on the map synonymous with fashion and glamour thanks to The Only Way Is Essex?’”

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

Wrinkles are major bone of contention WRINKLES, those dreaded lines on a woman’s face, may enable doctors to predict how likely she is to suffer from bone fractures. That’s because the level of proteins in the skin and bones are linked, so if a woman’s face and neck are severely wrinkled, she faces a higher risk of bone breakage because of bone-density loss,. Yale University researchers examined 114 early postmenopausal women, whose last menstrual period was within three years, as part of an ongoing clinical trial at numerous US sites. They measured the women’s skin at 11 locations on the face and neck, both visually and using a device known as a durometer, to

assess how rigid the skin was on the forehead

and cheek. Bone mass and density were measured with a

portable ultrasound and Xray. “We found that deepening and worsening skin wrinkles were related to lower bone density among the study participants,” said Lubna Pal, associate professor at Yale School of Medicine. “The worse the wrinkles, the lesser the bone density, and this relationship was independent of age - or of factors known to influence bone mass.” More resilient skin was linked to better bone density and Prof Pal added: “Our findings that the appearance and physical properties of the skin can reflect the quality of the skeleton are noteworthy. “That’s because it may allow clinicians to identify fracture risk in post-menopausal women ‘at a glance’, without depending on costly tests.”

Scotland leads project into solving cleft-lip conditions A SCOTTISH university is spearheading a Europewide research project to find ways of preventing birth defects, such as cleft lip. Professor Peter Mossey, of the University of Dundee dental school, has received a European Science Foundation grant of around £400,000. The money will fund five years of conferences and

meetings between a network of experts across Europe. In places such as India and sub-Saharan Africa, many children born with “orofacial” clefts do not survive, while it is the most common birth defect in Britain, afflicting one in 700 babies. Prof Mossey, principal investigator of the new network, said: “This work means that for the first time, a major effort will be made towards the ultimate scientific and

10 June 2011 - 16 June 2011

humanitarian objective - primary prevention of orofacial clefts.” Orofacial clefts appear when the top lip or roof of the mouth does not form properly. Scotland has one of the highest rates of cleft palate, as does Canada and Finland. The rate is lowest in Africa and parts of Latin America. “Smoking, for example, doubles the risk, and binge drinking is a contributing factor to birth defects.”

The cleft-lip conditions can hamper speech, hearing and appearance and can damage people’s well-being. Care is required from birth to adulthood, involving plastic surgery, speech and language therapy, counselling and dentistry. Prof Mossey added: “There must be an underlying gene pool effect to make the Scottish population pre-disposed to it, but there are also environmental factors.”

U-turn by experts, who admit: Yo-yo diets may just be healthy after all A YO-YO diet is better than no diet for someone who needs to lose weight say experts, in a remarkable U-turn. Shedding and regaining weight in a rapid cycle has generally been viewed as unhealthy and psychologically damaging by those who know over the years. But new US research conducted on mice suggests roller-coaster dieting can have long- term benefits and even extend life. Animals that were switched between a high-fat and lowfat diet every four weeks lived 25% longer than those who only ate a high-fat diet and remained obese. They also had better blood glucose levels, and lived roughly the same length of time as mice on a continuous low-fat diet. In addition, preliminary findings indicated that yo-yo dieting mice had reduced levels of cytokine immune system, signalling molecules linked to inflammation. Increased inflammation is a major risk-

factor for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Study leader Dr Edward List, from Ohio University, told a conference: “If the conventional wisdom is true, it would discourage a lot of overweight people from losing weight. “The new research shows that the simple act of gaining and losing weight does not seem detrimental to lifespan. The study adds to our understanding of the benefit of losing weight. I would hope that this encourages people not to give up.” But Consultant dietician Sian Porter, from the British Dietetic Association, said previous research had shown that yo-yo diets could be “self destructive”. She was not surprised that yo-yo dieting mice lived longer than those who were obese and added: “The problem for humans is keeping weight control at a sustainable level. “It’s a good idea to be a healthy weight for your height, but mice aren’t people. I think this study falls into the category of ‘very interesting’ but it would be far more interesting if replicated in humans.”

Food News A BAN on the sale of Spanish and EU-produced strawberries in Russia has been lifted officially by the Health authorities there. The announcement came at a meeting yesterday (Thursday) between the Russian Health Services and the Spanish Embassy. Although the prohibition on the importation and marketing of European berries

Strawberries back on Russian tables has never been official, the Association of Russian Manufacturers reported the existence of a

domestic order regarding their removal from the market. They said it had been

issued by the Russian Health Authorities, but Gennady Onischenko, who runs the service, said: “There are no restrictions on berries.” Onischenko also announced the start of bilateral talks with representatives from Spain, Denmark and the Netherlands.

Russia prohibited imports of vegetables from Spain and Germany on 30th May, following the outbreak of E. coli, and the ban was extended last Thursday to cover all European plants. The EU described the ban as “disproportionate” and EU representatives requested it

be lifted before the two-day Russia-EU summit in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod, which ends today (Friday). But Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko, said: “That will depend on the agility of the European Union structures.”

Variety is the spice of life for Oliver’s! OLIVER’S restaurant, right opposite the Sunday market in Los Cristianos, has been open just a short time but has already established itself as a venue for great food. First of all, a great deal of time has been taken over the wine list, as we noticed a label we love but can never findso obviously, it had to be done (it’s a hard life, you know).

With a huge array of dishes to choose from, this place really does cater for all tastes, whether it’s an incredible lamb shoulder in minted gravy with all the trimmings, or one of the new line of pizzas (I can heartily recommend the sweet chilli variety), the only problem is what to have. As you might have guessed, I visit this restaurant on a regular basis and have tried many of the main meals and quite a few of the starters (although I do seem to keep coming back to the sweet

10 June 2011 - 16 June 2011

chilli wrap with real chips). So on this occasion, I went for something I’ve never had before, so for me, chilli nachos dripping with cheese and far to more-rish for their own good, and for my partner, a homemade mushroom soup, which was so thick and flavoursome that it really could have been a meal in itself. But no, on to the main courses. The aromas accompanying this next dish were superb and, with salsa, sour cream and guacamole, these fajitas

really hit the spot. And with a choice of beef, chicken, mixed or vegetable, all you have to do is make a decision, then roll ‘n’ fold. Fabulous! Then on to my choice: Medallions of Pork in a rich apple-infused gravy with potatoes of the day (today’s being sliced in cream and garlic), a perfect combination of textures and flavours. So, with buttons bursting, we head to the desserts - a selection of homemade classics such as Bailey’s cheesecake and chocolate gateaux.

But on this occasion, the carrot cake won me over and, as always, two spoons. As I’ve already mentioned, the restaurant has established itself very quickly, but that doesn’t stop the management from thinking ahead and understanding that customers these days like to feel they are getting a great deal. So, with that in mind, they are offering a free bottle of house wine to any couple dining - and it’s a good wine, too! Also, under-eights eat for free and, with live music on

Tuesdays and Sundays from 8pm, it really is a great place to relax and enjoy a full evening’s entertainment. The guys at Oliver’s would also like to take this chance to invite everyone to the restaurant on Saturday, 18th June, for the Live Arico barbeque. And, with many of the Island’s entertainers popping down to lend their support, it really is a great chance to raise some money for the 370 dogs in their care. So get yourselves there and enjoy the afternoon.

Travelodge planning budget-hotel spree in major Spanish cities

Here’s a pretty good reason for having a holiday in La Palma We continue our in-depth look at all seven of the Canary Islands with a visit to La Palma, a green, secretive land of remarkable beauty IT IS no coincidence that La Palma is known as La Isla Bonita, or The Pretty Island, because it really is an outstanding area with landscapes of remarkable beauty.

TRAVELODGE, the British budget hotel chain with three hotels in Spain already, have a huge expansion plan in place there for the next 10 years. Together with the company’s property partner, Citygrove, Travelodge have secured funding to kick-start their new operation in Barcelona and Valencia, and are in talks for a third in Seville. They are hoping to cash in on hotel guests trading downwards since the credit crunch, which has hammered Spain severely in the past two years or so. Paul Harvey, Travelodge’s managing director (international and development), said: “Our existing three hotels have been trading well. When a country has economic concerns, it is the time consumers choose a low-cost model.” Standard Life Investments have advanced the cash to build a £28.2m, 250-bed Travelodge in the central district of Barcelona. They will own the 10-storey building, with Travelodge operating it. In Valencia, Travelodge’s proposed 116bed hotel, near the airport, is being financed by Spanish bank BBVA. Citygrove, in talks with potential funders for a third, 200-bed Travelodge in Seville, are currently seeking a planning licence to develop the hotel. Future locations will include Madrid, Malaga, Bilbao and Granada, with further hotels in Barcelona. ”Budget is now understood by the Spanish,” said Mr

Page 44

Harvey. “They travel on Easyjet and understand the concept. At present, there are few budget hotels there because in Spain, the hotel sector is predominantly expensive, mid-market hotels which are under-invested. “We have also been helped by the fact that the Spanish people’s use of the internet has grown, so online booking is up.” Travelodge, 80% owned by Dubai International Capital (DIC), have a 1,000-room agreement with Citygrove to develop hotels in the UK and Spain. Citygrove chairman Toby Baines said: “Spanish banks such as BBVA or Santander will still lend on property, but only for certain deals such as development where there is a pre-let to a tenant. Like in the UK, many of the banks have an overhang of debt and they need to clear this.” Travelodge are attractive to institutional investors and banks because they take a 25year lease, creating a secure income for investors. They are now evaluating western Europe for their next step expansion step, with Germany, France, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Italy all being considered. Travelodge have more than 300 UK hotels and are the largest hotel brand in London. The chain’s Mr Sleep and the Zzz Squad advertising campaign has helped raise the company’s profile over the past year. They plan to expand to 14,000 rooms in the capital by 2016 and to 30,000 rooms in the long term. Citygrove are also developing hotels for Travelodge at UK towns, including Maidstone and Aldershot.

This is the green island and home to almost-intact natural resources, revealing a multitude of colours beneath one of the best skies in the world in terms of astronomic observation. That is why you won’t be surprised to find that the most important astrophysics observatories in the northern hemisphere are situated here. Nor will you be able to imagine the number of secret places where you can get in touch with nature on the most north-westerly of the Canary Islands. Only when you enter the Biosphere Reserve and start exploring do you get some idea. Your eyes will open wide as you make your way through it, along one of its innumerable paths, and through dense forests, dotted with permanent springs, where the vegetation all around you is what survived from the age of the dinosaurs. You will be captivated by the impressive peaks, where stargazing is a whole new experience; by the ravines, the vol-

canoes and the strange lava flows. Incredibly, you can also explore inside one of the biggest craters in the world, which is also a National Park. And there, on the steep sides, are splendid examples of the canary pine tree, a species which grows only in the Canaries. A succession of volcanic eruptions gave birth to La Palma, enabling it to emerge from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean around two million years ago, and build a mountain range, criss-crossing the island from North to South. This land, rich in traditions, legends and customs, preserves two types of architecture. On the one hand, there is the rural architecture, strongly influenced by agriculture. Apart from the houses, you’ll find lagares (wine-presses), bodegas (wine-cellars), granaries, vegetable gardens, threshing floors and windmills. On the other hand, there is the typical, urban architecture, more open to outside influences, which gives its towns a kind of old colonial flavour. This is a consequence of the distinctive interests, and also of the successive tastes and fashions in architecture, as the island has progressed, always looking towards the sea. Palmeran society has tradi-

tionally been creative, with a lifestyle closely linked to arts and culture. Thus, the island has invented itself through a close and permanent relationship between its citizens and the most recent artistic and intellectual developments. Its archaeological sites, sprinkled all over the island, show the visitor how much they appreciate the relics of the aboriginal inhabitants. The most interesting remains are rock carvings, and so far, around 200 have been found. The towns and villages of La Palma hold a wide variety of celebrations. The island has a system of accreditation for craft workers, and the crafts themselves are internationally famous for high-quality, hand-made products, such as cigars, silk and embroideries. If sightseeing is not in your remit, there are all types of leisure activities to keep you occupied, or amused, including climbing and ravinedescending, hiking, pot-holing, mountain-biking, paragliding, scuba-diving and various other sea-based sports. And though La Palma isn’t primarily a sun-and-sand resort, it still has several outstanding beaches, with pristine sand and crystal-clear waters, along with untouched scenery and imposing cliffs. There are also plenty of almost-deserted beaches where you can enjoy wonder-

ful solitude and tranquillity. And during your stay on the island, you will experience the mild climate and the volcanic origin of the fine, black-sand beaches. But you certainly don’t come to La Palma for its lively nightlife, even though your hotel may have an entertainment programme, and you’ll find a good selection of bars and restaurants around the island. If you’re after all-night raves and off-key karaoke, though, you’ve definitely come to the wrong place. Eating out at a fine seafood restaurant, and an after-dinner drink at a music bar, is as good as it gets. There are plenty of good tapas bars in the towns and villages, and some excellent restaurants serving homecooked local fare. You will also find international cuisine, but definitely not geared to English tastes. Although, through its natural beauty, the island is mostly promoted as an active leisure destination, don’t forget that the sun shines on La Palma almost the whole year around. This makes it into a distinctive holiday destination, where sunbathing and relaxing on any of its beaches means discovering a miniature continent with its own extraordinary identity, full of contrasts.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

Keep an eye out for a tasty Hyundai tourer HYUNDAI have just announced the pricing and specification details of their new i40 Tourer, which has a September release date for salesrooms. It is set to go head-to-head with the Mondeo estate and other family load-luggers and, value-wise, it has an excellent chance of topping the bill. That’s because the i40 offers stacks of standard equipment, a five-year warranty and really attractive running costs. Starting with the latter, one of the surprising things about this model is that the entrylevel Active diesel version falls into the same insurance category as Hyundai’s i10 city car. On top of this, powered by a

115hp 1.7 CRDi turbo-diesel with Blue Drive technology as standard - including startstop - this version also claims 65.7mpg and 113g/km CO2. Not bad for a motor boasting 553-1,719 litres of boot space. Other engine options are a 136hp 1.7 diesel plus 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrol units, while specification choices are Active, Style and Premium. Active includes Blue Drive with start-stop, but also 16inch alloys, Bluetooth with voice recognition, electricheated mirrors with LED indicators, all-round electric windows, electronic parking brake with automatic hold function, and leather steering wheel with audio controls. Moving up to Style, Blue Drive is limited to just one diesel variant (at a £1,000

premium), but touch-screen satnav with reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control and dualzone climate-control boost the fitted kit.

There’s no Blue Drive for the range-topping Premium; instead, it comes with full leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and a ‘supervision’ instrument clus-

ter with LCD colour display. Lane Departure Warning and Smart Parking Assist, heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats are optional extras.

Hyundai i40 Tourer prices start at £18,395 for the 1.6 petrol Active, rising to £25,895 for the 136hp 1.7 diesel auto in Premium spec. Every single version comes with Hyundai’s Five-Year Triple Care package. This includes a five-year unlimited mileage warranty, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks - underlining the Tourer’s strong value for money. Designed in Germany, engineered specifically for Europe, sharply-styled and undoubtedly well built, the Tourer should prove an eyeopener for the rest of this sector. As if that were not enough hard enough to take for rival manufacturers, a saloon version follows later in the year.

Saab baled out by Chinese manufacturer SAAB chairman Victor Muller has again rescued the Swedish company from going under, this time via a strategic partnership with China’s SUV manufacturer Hawtai. Under the agreement, Saab will receive a 150m-euro cash injection for their parent firm Spyker, while the two companies will form joint ventures for manufacturing, technology and distribution.

They have also secured a 30m-euro loan from existing their Gemini Investment Fund investor which, together, has enabled Saab to maintain dayto-day operations - and restart their production line in Sweden. Muller said: “The partnership with Hawtai allows Saab Automobile to continue executing their business plan, while allowing us to enter the Chinese car market and establish a technology partnership with a strong manufacturer there.” He added: “We expect that Saab’s unique brand-values,

based on their aviation heritage, Scandinavian origins and innovation-driven character, will do very well in the Chinese market. “With Hawtai’s clean-diesel engine technologies and production capacity, and their ambitious development programmes, we have found the right partner to develop the Saab business and build a solid relationship.”

Hawtai say they have an annual production capacity of 350,000 vehicles, 300,000 clean-diesel engines and 450,000 automatic transmissions. Richard Zhang, Hawtai Vice-President, said: “The partnership will give us access to innovative technologies and an international network which would have taken us decades to build.” Together with a 60m-euro

investment from a Lithuanian investment fund and Russian oligarch Vladimar Antonov, it could spell new-found success for Saab. Muller hopes the cash will kick-start development of the new 91 supermini “which we so eagerly want”. Saab are, reportedly, putting together a bid for the outgoing Mini platform from BMW, having already pencilled

in a deal with BMW to provide engines for future models. And other partnerships are in hand. “There is a strong demand for large SUVs in China, so something larger than our new 9-4X is thinkable,” said Muller. But definitely not yet, especially with the 9-4X not even on the European market until the end of the year.

Saab’s new 9-4X crossover SUV, which may be overtaken by recent events at the company

ROSCOE Sport Talk Email: roscoe@canarianweekly.com

Fred Karno would be proud… Las Palmas 1 CD Tenerife 0 ANOTHER week, another soap opera. In fact, make that another star player given away, another manager sacked, another financial crisis. I could go on. Last Saturday saw the tamest Canarian Derby in memory, with a mainly reserve side taking on a gloating Las Palmas team. Both sides played as though they were already on the sunloungers, and the hosts’ winner from a contentious penalty mattered little. The major plus was the final whistle. The season is over and it will go down as Tenerife’s darkest ever. It has been a miserable season from start to finish, and the legacy is only just starting to hit home. After the Las Palmas defeat, new director of football Pedro Cordero, as predicted here, fired manager David Amaral. I cannot remember any professional football team hiring and firing five full-time managers in a single season. Five managers. Three directors of football. The player exodus has begun. Marc Bertran is now at Osasuna and should be joined by Nino. Ricardo is a Sporting Gijon player while Pablo Sicilia’s move to Las Palmas is off. His knee injury is worse than first feared and he will

Page 46

not kick a ball until Christmas. Obviously, Las Palmas have pulled the plug on his deal, which means Tenerife must keep a player they cannot afford or play. It’s a disaster. Pablo is on around 500,000 euros a year, if local reports are to be believed. This week, Cordero set a wage limit of 100,000 euros for players, so Sicilia will be sat in the stands earning the money of half the side. These strict financial measures cut very deep. Star youngster Josmar, subject of a 4,000,000-euro inquiry from Barcelona a year ago, has been released. Yes, given a free! He is on 200,000 euros and Tenerife say they cannot pay. So he is leaving, and CDT will get nothing. It’s an unbelievable and frightening development. Why don’t they sell him? Even a low fee, with sell-on and appearance clauses must be better for the club rather than just letting him go? This news on Tuesday was followed by a mega bombshell on Wednesday. On the club’s official website, a statement said they couldn’t guarantee participation in the Spanish 2nd B League next season. This would mean another drop into what in effect is the 4th Division. I’m still stunned writing this. Is Gordon Brown in charge? It’s all part of a stand-off with players such as Alvarez and Natalio. They have been granted free transfers, yet they want compensation from the club. There is no way any side will

pay them anything like the 700,000-euro salary they are getting at Tenerife and, with three years to run they are entitled to millions. Both of them. The club can’t pay and they want the dosh. Taking a step backwards, I can see the players’ point. A contract is a contract and I’m sure, like most of us, they have budgeted their life around it. But this is football, and they should not be rewarded for their services. We paid for promotion-standard football

and they didn’t give us that. It’s going to be a very, very long summer - and what sort of squad, or even level of football, we will get when the dust settles in August is anyone’s guess. We will, of course, keep you up to date with developments. But for the time being, you need to do one thing. Pray! Tenerife need some help from upstairs. Of course a rich businessman or three would do!

Match Report

Division 1

THE Torviscas boys of Palms A were made to work for their League crown after being pushed all the way by Summerland Superstars. They required just one point from their final two matches on Tuesday, yet needed both matches to clinch Division One. The first match of a double header saw the eagerly-anticipated clash with Superstars. The chance to win the league at their close rivals was a juicy carrot, and the match was a cagey affair. Palms didn’t take the lead until the seventh frame, and at 4-3 they needed one more frame to seal the title. But the hosts roared back and won the remaining rubbers to force the title down to the wire. A quick charge up the TF1 ensued as Rat Pack lay in wait for Palms A, while La Caña were ready for their Superstars clash. The dash to their home venue did Palms no favours, and they found themselves in a dogfight, with the scores at 2-2. But suddenly, it all clicked into gear and they reeled off the next four frames to lift the title. Superstars had done their bit and defeated La Caña, but it was all in vain. There was similar tension at the bottom as Men Of Atlantis and 8 Ball Massive tried to avoid joining La Caña and Legends A in the dreaded drop. Men of Atlantis knew they had to get something at Bar 180 B, but they started poorly. At 3-1 down they looked doomed, but they nicked a double rubber back. Kevin won his singles to make it 5-4 and it was game on. Meanwhile, 8 Ball Massive were in trouble against Terrace A. They were 5-1 down after the doubles and were staring into the abyss. Vinny got one back for 8 Ball, but Mark P beat John to leave their fate elsewhere. So in San Blas, MOA captain John knew he had to win the last match of the season to keep his side up. But it was not to be. There were just as many emotions flying in Division Two. Gaffers and Legends B were already assured top-flight pool next season, and Bar Tasca were heavy favourites to join them. They needed to match Phoenix Potters’ result, but they were struggling at home to Toscales Tangos. Phoenix were comfortable 82 winners at Target Rangers

Horoscopes of the week Gemini

(May 22nd-June 21st) Instead of lashing out and blaming everyone around you when things go wrong in your life, take a step back and be honest about bad decisions you’ve made in the past. It’s time for a reality check. Being honest with yourself is the only way forward, because then you’ll make positive changes happen. CANCER (June 22ndJuly 23rd) Friends and money hardly ever mix well, so don’t feel obliged to lend someone money, especially if you haven’t got any, or if you feel he’ll let you down. Is it really worth losing a friendship over? Venus moved into Gemini earlier in the week and restored a happier balance over relationships and friendships. So that should solve any immediate dilemmas LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) Your upbeat start to the week can continue if you don’t allow yourself to be sidetracked by anything or anyone. Stick rigidly to what you’ve set out for yourself, because once that’s completed you can chill out. And don’t forget to give yourself a good pat on the back for a job well done. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) Your elaborate, professional visions will take a lot more money to get up and running than you’d anticipated so slow it down a bit and lower your sights for a while. Slow and steady wins the race, remember, so try not be so impatient. You’ll get there, but it won’t be overnight by any means. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Take time to listen to friends and family when discussing

Page 48

long-term plans, instead of pushing to get your point across without even listening. Planning ahead is all about compromise, and you must know by now that you can’t always get your own way. Live with it, and go back to the drawing board. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) You feel in your heart that you’ve made the right decision over a business or financial venture, so why is that insecurity and self-doubts are starting to creep in? Boost your confidence and optimism by looking to past accomplishments. You’ve done well and will do so again. Have faith! SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) You’ll get more with honey than with vinegar this week so, if there’s some ego-fanning to be done, suck it up and get on with it. You can do so with your tongue firmly in your cheek, as long as the person in authority doesn’t realise. Keep your eye on the end result at all times. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Be careful you don’t bite off more than you can chew at work - just because you’re afraid to admit you don’t know what someone is actually asking you to do. Surely, it’s better to own up at

the start, rather than make a mess of the task. Bite the bullet and speak up. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) Your thinking is sound and practical, especially over work matters and forward planning, but there will be times in the week where your thoughts will wander to sunny shores and you’ll almost feel the sun on your back. This is fate telling you to take a break, so go ahead and book a holiday. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) It’s one of those weeks where you’ll have little choice but to put the needs of others before your own. Don’t gripe about it. The quicker you get it done, the quicker you’ll be able to focus on your own wants and needs. Venus in Gemini ups the ante over love and relationships, bringing the silver lining. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Your need for instant gratification, whether it be over work, money or love, is causing untold tension in your life, so why not lower the bar over what you want to achieve and keep goals realistic. You can always up the ante once you get to the first level, but do take it slowly from there. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) You’re forever hopeful that when someone makes a promise, he/she keeps it, but that doesn’t usually happen, unfortunately. Money matters are causing you sleepless nights, so take the bull by the horns and demand what is due to you. After all, you’ve worked for it, so take a stand.
