Melchior: We need a voice Cabildo President believes it is vital for foreign language radio stations to be heard TENERIFE Cabildo President Ricardo Melchior has waded into the controversial Fm radio licensing process by declaring that foreign language stations MUST be granted licences. In an exclusive interview with Canarian Weekly, Melchior expressed his dissatisfaction with the initial findings of the licensing committee. “This is a big problem,” he told us. “This is the responsibility of the Canarian Government. I spoke last Saturday (18th June) to all the Canary Government and all the party people of the (ruling) political party and said there has to be a solution.” Last week, the popular Melchior was sworn in for a fourth consecutive term as head of the Island’s Cabildo, and he has constantly encouraged integration and evolution between communities. He has an excellent reputation with foreign delegates

and politicians, and he was disappointed when he discovered that no foreign language station had been allocated a licence. Melchior, a strong supporter of the power of foreign media, has spoken constantly of their role in the Island’s integration. He believes it is vital for non-Spanish stations to have a voice: “For us (Tenerife Cabildo), it is very important, and for all of the radio stations that are English or German or French or Italian, or all the Spanish radios. But you have to find a solution, and I hope that they find a solution in the next five or six days.” The five-or-six-day reference is important as the licensing committee will hand over their final results and recommendations to the Government in the next fortnight. Last week, they released their provisional findings and stunned the radio community by breaching their own strict guidelines. At the start of the application process last year, it was decreed that no single business or owner would be granted more than five licences.

In the provisional findings, local businessman Miguel Concepcion, who is also president of CD Tenerife, was granted over 20. It was also agreed that licences would be given to Canary Island-based companies only, yet radio group Kiss Fm, from Madrid, has also been granted over 20 licences.

Many long-standing small radio stations all over the archipelago have been left in the wilderness along with popular foreign language stations. This has led to some strong criticisms in local and national newspapers, and raging debates on TV and radio, as well as calls for a whole-scale investigation into the bidding

process. The controversy has come at the worst possible time for Melchior, as the Island’s politicians try to create a workable government following last month’s local elections. Many important cabinet roles are still vacant as the coalition parties try to find a workable resolution. The radio licensing decision has opened the tin of worms many media pundits had predicted, and it is something the Cabildo is keen to get sorted quickly, especially the foreign radio situation. “It is very important for us” said Melchior. “I don’t know the technical thing exactly. It’s not our competence, but I say to the Canarian Government, ‘It’s not my beer to know exactly the problem, (but) the problem is we don’t have it (foreign language licences) so you have to find a solution’.” It remains to be seen what will happen when the official findings are presented, and many initially unsuccessful applicants have spent the last week launching appeals, and scrutinising the preliminary reports. Major media groups such as El Dia have also missed out,

and they have launched some vicious leaders and editorials. They are not alone. In the north of Tenerife, not one local radio station has been granted a licence. Instead, bigger ‘group’ stations and the aforementioned Kiss Fm and Miguel Concepcion entities have been hoovering up. It flies in the face of the idea of local licences going to local stations who serve the community. In fact, one of Snr Melchior’s main promises during his inauguration speech was: From Tenerife for Tenerife’. In the meantime, little will change on the radio spectrum in the archipelago. Stations which have not applied for licences will continue to broadcast, as will those who are appealing the decision via the law courts and other means. But if the Government is serious about leading a united Tenerife forward during these tough times, then it will have to make a stand. There is nothing to be gained from depriving communities of their local radio stations, be they Spanish, English or German.

Tenerife radio stations trying to avoid SGAE The Sociedad General de Auditores y Editores (SGAE), the Spanish equivalent of the performing rights society, have revealed that radio stations based in Tenerife are trying to avoid paying them under the uncertainty of the licence situation.

Inspections have been carried out over the last two months to ensure that they have the correct information from each station regarding music purchased, music played, adverts played, and copies of audited accounts, and that the correct amount

of money is being paid to them for performing rights. A SGAE spokesman told Canarian Weekly earlier in the week, that they were trying to track the owners of 2 Spanish stations, 1 English station, 1 Russian station, and 1 multi language station based in the

south of the island, but they were proving very evasive, and that at the English station they were told the owner no longer existed. The SGAE spokesman added: “for some reason we always seem to have a problem with radio stations understanding

that they have to pay performing rights for the music and publicity they play in Spain. The Sociedad General de Auditores y Editores (SGAE) is a government body and has the right for access to these companies’ accounts via the Hacienda, so non-compliance

only leads to bigger problems, and bigger payments.”

The President’s message: Quality, efficiency and above all… be friendly!

CANARIAN WEEKLY were this week privileged to meet with reelected Tenerife Cabildo President Ricardo Melchior in the Palacio Insular, in Santa Cruz. The new mandate began last Friday, with 31 councillors assigned to three political forces: Canarian Coalition (15) Partido Popular (9) and the Socialist Party (7). For the first time, the council will be made up of 31 councillors for the Island’s 900,000 inhabitants. The population increase in Tenerife has led to the increased political representatives. So what is the priority for the Santa Cruz-born President over the next four years? He told Canarian Weekly that his main objective was employment. There are 24% of workers unemployed in Tenerife now because of the economic crisis. “We want to reduce this to 12%, finding employment for those who are long-term unemployed,” he said. “For example, those who were in the construction industry.” In addition, the Cabildos wants to motivate the young

unemployed, providing them with career prospects, and Melchior added: “We plan to create 60,000 new jobs, in all sectors, including agriculture and roads. “It won’t be the first time we have done this, because back in 1987, unemployment was at 30%, and six years later it was at 12%.” That was when Ricardo Melchior was Vice-President of the Cabildo, so he is well aware of the problem and how it can be resolved. Various initiatives will be used to re-employ those out of work, such as local swimming pools, and increasing the number of socio sanitary beds, (places for those that need help, but not necessar-

24 June 2011 - 30 June 2011

ily hospitalisation, like the elderly). In four years, 17 swimming pools have been built and are now running successfully, funded jointly by the Cabildo and local municipalities, creating sustainable jobs. Thousands of jobs will be created within the forestry and tourism sectors, and Melchior pledged: “We will do this with high energy and pressure - the Cabildo, municipalities and enterprise. All of us!” Despite the economic crisis, the Island is developing at a pace. Tenerife currently flies direct to some 145 airports worldwide, and then there’s the port, a possible third runway and NAP connecting

West Africa with fibre-glass cables. This telecommunications project will help connect the world, and those in the under-developed world. From Lisbon to South Africa there is one cable, and from Lisbon to Lagos there is another one, with connection hubs in Tenerife and Ghana. Then there will be a cable from Cadiz, plus a cable connecting South Africa, Cape Verde, Canary Islands, Lisbon and beyond. Eventually, 21 countries in Africa will be connected through Tenerife. In addition, the power of the South America-Tenerife-Lisbon link will be increased. The President stressed: “This is our most strategic

project, and it will all be up and running in the next two years, with 2012 being most important.” He added: “The Dominican Republic in the Caribbean is a hub, like Tenerife, and their President said it was the most important thing to happen since their independence 160 years ago. “By the end of September, there will be a fibre-glass ring around the whole of Tenerife. There will be 10 operators, which means that all people will have access to low-priced broadband connection, no matter where they are. “In relation to tourism, there are massive promotional campaigns, but it is key that while the visitors are here, they enjoy their stay. Customer service is very important and everyone has to ‘be friendly’. “We’ve had a very positive first five months, with an increase in visitor numbers, over night stays and repeat business. “Visitors have a loyalty to Tenerife, with 80% of them having been here a minimum of two times before. The best publicity we have is word of mouth. “Our aim is to surpass the five-million visitor mark, which we hope to achieve.

Tourism is very competitive, with globalization. And to compete, we have to provide quality, efficiency and be friendly, in addition to the natural elements of the weather, nature and Teide. Canarian Weekly broached the subject of “All-Inclusive” holidays, to which the President responded: “We don’t like all-inclusive. We are an island which is all-inclusive, with everything available. Yet 13% of our visitors stay in ‘designated’ all-inclusive resorts.” The President also touched on transportation, saying: “This is a key area because here in Tenerife, there are more cars than people. “Tenerife is working towards a fully-integrated transport system with the South Train, which could be a reality within approximately five years. “It depends on the prioritisation of the project from the Spanish Government’s perspective. “Each year in Santa Cruz there are 15 million tram users, and this has lowered congestion by 8-9% within four years.” With President Melchior’s ambitions still as fresh as they ever were, the future of Tenerife looks to be in safe hands.

A WORD FROM OUR EDITOR

Our Secure Is any one for a Tennis - lodger? tourism plan

Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

THE FIRST VicePresident of the Government and Minister for Home Affairs, Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, and the Minister for Industry, Tourism and Trade, Miguel Sebastián, presented the “Secure Tourism Plan” on Tuesday morning, 21 June.

As we reach the mid point of Wimbledon, interesting facts emerge aside the numbers of hours it rains, the number of strawberries consumed or the complexities of the new roof – but where the top players reside. SW19 residents are renting their houses for up to £12,000 a week to the world’s top tennis players. The event is the only one in the world where players such as Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and the Williams sisters stay in modest local homes rather than luxury hotels. It means the tournament is a lucrative business for letting agents and homeowners. Those who have a house within walking distance of the All England Club are sitting on a gold mine. During Wimbledon fortnight a typical three-bed townhouse within five minutes’ walk of the courts can command rent of £4,000 a week, with the larger houses fetching up to £12,000 a week. The cost is well within the price range of the world’s top players, however, who can

Page 04

sometimes be seen food shopping in Wimbledon village. World number one Rafael Nadal is known to be a dab hand at cooking - and as with some of the other players he has his mum staying with him this year. Margaret Heenan, managing director of Wimbledon Lettings, says the local properties are part of the charm of the event for the hotelweary stars. “It’s the only grand slam where we have players in private housing,” she said. “It’s really popular and the only chance they have to live like a normal person.” So does this mean that Stratford residents will be able to cash in on the forthcoming Olympics? The London Olympic Stadium will be the centrepiece of the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics, it’s located at Marshgate Lane in Stratford in the Lower Lea Valley. Stratford is northeast in the London Borough of Newham. Now rental property there is not cheap. Prices start for just a room from 600 GBP p/w, with a two bed terrace commanding over 1,000 GBP per week! Perhaps those unlucky in the ticket ballots will be able to make a bob or two renting out their properties.

This action will enable the promotion of new measures to perfect the coordination of and improve security in the Spanish tourism sector. Spain (the third most popular tourism destination in the world) including the Canary Islands has established tourism as the main production sector for its economy. At the same time, Spain has become one of the safest countries in the European Union with a crime rate of more than 20 points below the European average. This combination of factors has led the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade to implement the “Secure Tourism Plan”. This plan will represent a significant contribution to the economic recovery policies as security is one of the indicators with the strongest influence on tourism performance. The “Secure Tourism Plan” is mainly aimed at permanently increasing public safety in tourism areas and providing tourists with a safer environment during their time in Spain. Similarly, the plan is also aimed at supporting and actively contributing to the work undertaken in the sector by the Government of Spain and by the Regional and Local Authorities. It also aims to promote the Spanish tourism sector and cooperate in attaining greater competitiveness, as well as enhance cooperation between all the public and private institutions involved in the tourism sector. Increased efficiency and greater institutional coordination. All of these objectives have been taken into

consideration when drafting this Plan, which will be focused on the following: Combating crime in tourist destinations • Security will be increased in the most popular destinations and locations • Information campaigns will be launched in 10 languages • Faster care will be provided to the victims of crime • Procedures will be streamlined for the documentation of foreigners Broadening of the Foreign Tourist Assistance Service (SATE): quality, speed and effectiveness • The Foreign Tourist Assistance Service (SATE) personalised assistance to those foreign tourists who find themselves the victims of crime - will be broadened by setting up new offices in the most popular tourist destinations. A SATE office is already operating in Madrid and talks are being held with the Local Councils of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Malaga, Gandia and Benidorm regarding the implementation of the service in those towns and cities. • This service is run by officers from the Spanish National Police Force or the Guardia Civil and interpreters working for local councils and other institutions. • The service enables the victims of crime to be helped in their own language and provides them with advice on the next steps they should take (credit card cancellation, contact with embassies and consulates, communication with relatives, etc.). Furthermore, the tourist is helped through the official crime report procedure, informing them of their rights and issuing them a date for the Fast Track Court hearing. • Since it was first set up in Madrid, the SATE has helped 55,665 tourists and formalised 26,371 crime reports. The SATE responded to 10,157 tourists in 2010 alone. Efforts will be made to encourage collaboration and coordination with the Administrations and both public and private institutions operating in the

tourism sector: • Language training for the State Security Forces and Organisations so as to provide a better service to tourists. 24,548 officers have received this training since 2004 • Modernisation of the procedures for receiving crime reports through the use of new technologies • Establishment of a communications channel with the Administrations, Embassies, Consulates, Institutions and the tourism sector • Participation by Police Officers from other countries in order to continue fostering international police cooperation Measures being implemented as part of Operation Summer 2011 Operational implementation of the Plan is focused on Operation Summer 2011, which the Ministry of Home Affairs will once again launch on 1 July. 39,789 officers from the State Security Forces and Organisations will be working in those areas where the Operation takes place. Those officers will be joined by 2,995 additional officers, one third of them specialists (bomb disposal, maritime services, mounted officers, etc.). In total, 42,784 National Police and Guardia Civil officers will take part in the operation. Furthermore, twelve helicopters will guarantee security in the most popular tourist destinations. Operation Summer will enable increased surveillance in and around roads, stations, seaports, airports, hotels, camp sites and beaches and will strengthen security measures in place at shows and events involving large crowds of people. Furthermore, efforts will be increased to obtain antiterrorist intelligence and the investigation work carried out by the Judicial Police will be enhanced. The Operation will be carried out in the autonomous regions of Andalusia, Asturias, the Canary Islands, Cantabria, the Region of Valencia, Galicia, the Balearic Islands, Madrid and Murcia, as well as in the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla. Similarly, the police presence will be

increased in the World Heritage Cities of Ávila, Cáceres, Cuenca, Mérida, Salamanca, Segovia, Santiago de Compostela and Toledo. The Operation will come to an end on 31 August, except in the Balearic Islands and the autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla, where it will end on 30 September. The Instructions issued by the Secretariat of State for Security provides for a series of operational measures that include the following: • Greater police enforcement: a greater permanent police presence will be established in areas of high tourism concentration and where such a presence is usually lacking; • Greater collaboration with the tourism sector: more contact and meetings between the State Security Forces and Organisations and those responsible for running hotel establishments; • Easier procedures for the documentation of foreigners: police stations will be able to certify the photocopy of a passport or identity documents; • Collaboration with Regional and Local Police Forces: the Security Councils will agree on the criteria for optimising police activity in order to avoid any duplication of work; • Information campaigns in ten languages: containing advice on preventing security problems and on what to do if you find yourself the victim of crime during a trip to Spain; • Increased coordination of the State Security Forces and Organisations with the Regional and Local Police Forces through the Security Councils; • Government representatives and sub-representatives will carry out actions to guarantee and oversee the implementation and subsequent development of the Operation in each region; • All joint and complementary resources shared by the regional and local authorities and the State Security Forces and Organisations and other entities will be supported.

Tenerife’s big push on the mainland THE Government’s Tenerife Tourism department has launched its summer promotional campaign on mainland Spain to attract more national visitors. It began on Wednesday for one month, with a 175,000euro budget for an estimated impact of 500,000 euros. The campaign will appear on Internet sites, in the media, with tour operators and familiarisation trips to the Island. Tour operators involved are Travelplan, Orizonia (Viajes Iberia and Iberojet) and El Corte Ingles. The campaign promotes Tenerife and its vast possibilities as a holiday destination among sun-

worshippers and those who enjoy nature, tranquillity and a good rest. The campaign also mentions Puerto de la Cruz, a popular destination for Spanish travellers, which has been renovated extensively in recent years. The media campaign will include articles and advertising in Spanish newspapers such as El Mundo, El País, La Razón, La Vanguardia, El Periódico, and ABC. Tenerife will also have advertising banners on the various tour operators’ websites, which will have special summer-holiday packages to Tenerife. In the case of El Corte Ingles, spots will be broadcast over megaphones in its mainland stores, and on various radio stations, including Onda Cero, Cadena Cope and

Punto Radio. Also, Travelplan will play video highlights of Tenerife in their travel agencies. The mainland campaign by Tenerife Tourism will be completed with information packs about new products being sent to 11,000 travel agents, plus Orizonia’s familiarisation trips to the island, offering presentations about the destination and seminars. The Tourism Strategy of Tenerife is focusing on enhancing the image of the Island as a destination for all types of tourists - families, singles, couples and friends to enjoy. The number of Spanish tourists arriving in Tenerife in 2010 was 1,466,184, representing just over 30% of all passengers visiting the Island.

www.canarianweekly.com ESTRELLAS Theatre School students in the North and South have delivered two magical performances of the popular Seventies musical Grease. A marvellous 600-strong audience watched the cast of Estrellas South perform the Fifties-style musical in the Magma Arts and Congress Centre, in Las Americas, on 12th June. And a week later in the North, the children there drew an audience of 400 at the Tenerife Palace in Puerto de la Cruz. Both shows received fantastic feedback and were applauded as the best yet. The shows were said to be just as good as the West End production the children had seen in London in March while on a performing-arts educational trip. Grease was first staged in Chicago in 1971 and has been an ongoing global hit on stage and screen ever since. And many Estrellas parents, left spellbound by the professionalism displayed by the school’s youngsters, are keen to see the shows again. Although Estrellas North and South used the same script and sets, the productions were different in style, choreography and presentation, showing a diversity of ideas and originality by the pupils. Both performances had 10 strong main characters, while the younger children in both schools made up the chorus and dancers for many of the numbers. Maureen Sands, Principal of Estrellas School, is delighted with her youngsters’ success, and puts it down to the collective hard work by her staff, the motivated students and supportive par-

Aer Lingus increase routes to Canaries THERE is good news for people flying with Aer Lingus, just weeks after the company dispelled a strike threat by pilots. Passengers from Cork will be able to fly directly to Las Palmas, in Gran Canaria, from 30th October, as well as Barcelona and Rome. The Aer Lingus network will also be extended to include twice-weekly services from Belfast to Rome and Alicante. The Irish budget airline already fly to Lanzarote, Tenerife and Fuerteventura, and other new winter routes include a bonus for Irish skiers and snowboarders, who will be offered a service from Dublin to Milan Malpensa. Aer Lingus avoided travel chaos earlier this month after planned industrial action by their pilots was called off.

The Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (Ialpa) suspended strikes until next Saturday (1st July) to enable management to address concerns over the peak summer period roster. The agreement also included the development of a longerterm working regime, to which the union will give a trial period over the winter months. Meanwhile, online travelagents bookers.ie have published Ireland’s top 10 searched-for summer holiday destinations, which include Tenerife and Lanzarote. Seven are in Europe, including five on the Spanish mainland, the Balearics or the Canary Islands. Their top 10 are: Barcelona, Orlando, Malaga, Dubai, Mallorca, Algarve, Lanzarote, Cancun, Tenerife and Lisbon.

Spain’s Bank chief has dire warning about the economy BANK of Spain Governor Miguel Ángel Fernández Ordóñez has expressed serious doubts about Spain’s ability to recover from the economic crisis. Fernández Ordóñez said at Tuesday’s meeting of the Government’s Commission for the Economy that the growth in unemployment figures, to 21%, was of deep concern. And he warned: “This throws real doubt about the ability of the Spanish economy to recover potential growth, and assure the sustainability of its public finances.” He also said Spain needed to move closer to the methods of other developed countries, adding: “It will allow a greater flexibility for the employment factor to be used, but with greater protection for employees.” Fernández Ordóñez said the most urgent task for the Spanish economy was to revitalise the employment market, which meant companies needed be more flexible while collective negotiation was being

debated in parliament. He also pushed for the system of debt authorisations for the autonomous communities to be “applied strictly”, and for detailed financial reports from each region to be published regularly, like those by central government. The Bank chief added: “The autonomous communities need to stick firmly to their budgets because the massive deterioration, leading up to and during the current recession, means measures must be taken to get things back on an even keel.” He also underlined the need to put the pension system’s proposed reform through “as soon as possible”. On the subject of inflation, the Governor stressed that last year’s increase in VAT and the rising price of fuel had prevented any significant progress. But optimistically, he felt that once the impact of all those issues had been absorbed, “inflation should begin to drop again over the next few months.”

Pearly Grey back on the charity golf trail FOLLOWING the huge success of the Ingane Yami charity golf tournament in 2010, Pearly Grey are organising an action replay at Las Americas Golf Course on Saturday, 16th July. The Tenerife holiday company, based in Callao Salvaje, are again staging an individual stableford match with prizes for the first three in two categories, as well as awards for longest drive and nearest the pin. A presentation dinner will be held at Hotel Perla Gris (Pearly Grey) in Callao Salvaje from 8pm. Ingane Yami is a Christian, non-profit organisation, which was established in response to the growing AIDS crises in KwaZulu Natal,

South Africa (www.inganeyami.com). The group’s mission is to rescue orphaned and abandoned children, trapped in vulnerable circumstances, and to raise them in a loving, family environment to bring their lives back to normality. Ultimately, the project’s goal is to allow these children to realise their full potential to become a future generation of young leaders. Its mission is to build a village where orphaned and abandoned children will receive long-term, holistic care. They will have a place where they belong and thrive, being able to grow up in a family environment where they receive unconditional love, spiritual discipleship, nurturing and care. The village is being built on 30 acres of land in KwaZulu Natal, in the Shongweni Valley

area, some 45km from Durban City centre, and has great accessibility and proximity to nearby communities. It is lush in natural vegetation, providing freedom and space for children to grow and explore the beautiful, natural environment within the secure village. Once complete, the village will include the following facilities: *25 homes *Church/Community hall *Clinic *Pre-school *Director’s home *Recreation centre *Administration/food distribution centre *Sports field It has been designed so that individual houses are grouped together in clusters of five to form small communities within the whole village.

This has been done to foster a greater sense of belonging for the kids, allowing families within clusters to share experiences and support one another. The first homes are nearing completion and will soon be ready for their first occupants. Pearly Grey’s commitment to this project is long term. Their fund-raising activities will help contribute towards the completion of the remaining houses and facilities, as well as the on-going maintenance and well-being of the village and its occupants. Subscriptions to play in this year’s tournament can be made at Las Americas Golf Course, and for more information about the event, please email gina@pearlygrey.com

Second chance to buy MPs condemn London Olympic tickets cutbacks for coastguards

OLYMPICS fans left disappointed when they failed to secure tickets are in with another chance when the second round goes on sale from 6am today (Friday). Some 2.3 million will be available exclusively to those who were left empty-handed in the initial ballot. They will be sold through Ticketmaster on a firstcome, first-served basis. The 1.2 million applicants who failed to secure a ticket first time round will have a 10-day window to purchase tickets. The remaining 700,000 people who already have tickets but would like more will get their chance from July 8th. A total of 21 events have sold out completely, but there is still good availability for many of the team sports. Some 1.7 million of the remaining tickets are for football, with hockey and volleyball also plentiful.

SKY HAS exclusively revealed home furnishings firm Habitat could be sold. Home Retail Group, the owners of the Argos and Homebase retail chains, is in talks to buy the firm. But it is understood another firm is also bidding. Habitat has 71 stores worldwide, including 35 in the UK, 26 in France, five in Spain and five in Germany, employing 2,100 staff. Sir Terence Conran founded the company in London in 1964 to market his Summa range of furniture.

MPs are calling on the Government to scrap plans to close coastguard centres amid safety concerns.

The procedure used in the first round of sales, which was heavily criticised, left two-thirds of those who applied empty-handed Lord Seb Coe sought to reassure those who may have become disillusioned with the process. He told Sky News he had a “real commitment to get as many of those people who currently have been unsuccessful into the stadium by 2012”. “We’ve got 2.3 million tickets available for the second round and my objective is to get two thirds of the 1.9 million people who applied for

tickets into a venue. “We know who they are, they’re sports fans, they’re sports mad. “They signed up for the journey, they signed up to the website, they joined the application and I want them in the (venues) and that’s my commitment.” The tickets going on sale on Friday include 44 medal events across 310 sessions. Applicants can apply for up to three sessions each, with the maximum number of tickets in most sessions limited to six. While many of the popular events are sold out, there

are still 40,000 athletics tickets available, although most are in the higher price bracket. The most prestigious track and field session left is the women’s 4x100m final and men’s 4x400m final, with tickets costing £725. Basketball fans who missed out on the men’s final can still purchase tickets for the women’s. While the women’s beach volleyball final is a sell-out, there is still availability for the men’s. A further one million tickets will go on general sale at the end of the year.

Change of Habitat? The first Habitat store was opened in Chelsea by Conran, his then wife Caroline and the model Pagan Taylor. Habitat is now owned by

24 June 2011 - 30 June 2011

restructuring specialist Hilco, which bought it off the IKANO Group in December 2009. Home Retail Group was created with the combination of

Argos, the GUS home shopping businesses in the UK and Europe and the Reality UK home delivery operations. GUS acquired Homebase, which operated from 272 stores, in December 2002 The acquisition expanded the combined product portfolio of Argos and Homebase and offered the opportunity to increase sales in common products areas – indoor and outdoor furniture, homewares, gardening products and power tools.

Ministers have expressed “serious concerns”, insisting safety would be jeopardised if the proposals go ahead. Under the proposed changes, the number of centres open 24 hours a day would be cut from 18 to three. An inquiry by the Transport Committee concluded the plans were “seriously flawed”. Launching the committee’s report, chair Louise Ellman MP said: “We found little support for the current proposals. “We have no confidence that, under these proposals, the coastguard will in future be able to respond to emergencies at sea as well as they do now, let alone in a more effective way. I am confident that through this genuine consultation process we will deliver the right solution to make our coastguard service fit for the 21st century. “A drastic reduction in the number of rescue co-ordination centres will result in a loss of local knowledge amongst coastguard officers who are responsible for taking calls from people and vessels in distress.” Transport Secretary Philip Hammond said he welcomed the committee’s recognition that the coastguard service was in urgent need of modernisation. But he added: “The original proposals do not compromise safety and include increased resources for frontline rescue services.

“Reform will improve resilience in the system through improvements to IT and create better career opportunities for staff, as well as better pay and conditions. “As the committee says, the need for reform is not in question. I am confident that through this genuine consultation process we will deliver the right solution to make our coastguard service fit for the 21st century.” Under the proposed measures, the three 24-hour centres would be in Aberdeen, the SouthamptonPortsmouth area and Dover. But why not ask the people on the ground what their ideas are before we launch into an ill thought out and very old consultation document. There would be five subcentres open during the daytime only at Swansea, Falmouth, Bridlington, Belfast or Liverpool and Stornoway or Shetland. Steve Todd, national maritime secretary of the RMT transport union, said the cross-party committee had rightly exposed the dangers posed to the UK coastline by the “very damaging” cutbacks and closures. He also attacked the Government’s plan to scrap funding for the emergency towing vessels (ETVs) - large tugs that intercept disabled ships to prevent pollution. He said: “The ETVs were specifically introduced... to guard against the safety and environmental threats posed to the UK coastline... and are crucial to the safety of our saying members working in the maritime industries.”

March of the penguin who took wrong turn A YOUNG penguin is proving a hit with locals on a New Zealand beach after apparently taking a wrong turn while swimming near Antarctica. The bird made the 2,000mile journey to New Zealand, the first time in 44 years that one of the creatures has been sighted there in the wild. Dog-walker Christine Wilton, who discovered the bird on Peka Peka Beach, said: “It was out-of-thisworld to see it. Like someone just dropped it from the sky.” Believed to be about 10 months old, the Emperor penguin is 32 inches tall and may have been searching for squid and krill when it got lost, according to experts. Emperors are the tallest and largest species of penguin. They can grow up to

four feet tall and weigh more than 75 pounds. Their journey to breeding grounds deep in the Antarctic was chronicled in the 2005 documentary March Of The Penguins, which revealed their amazing ability to survive and breed despite the region’s brutal winter. Emperor penguins can spend months at a time in the ocean, coming ashore only to moult or rest, said Colin Miskelly, a curator at Te Papa museum of New Zealand. Mr Miskelly said the penguin appeared healthy and well-fed, with plenty of body fat and probably came ashore for a rest. But he warned it needs to find its way back south soon if it is to survive. “It doesn’t realise that the sand [it is eating] isn’t going to melt inside it,” Mr Miskelly said. “They typically eat snow, because it’s their only liquid.” However the bird is in no

immediate danger from dehydration because Emperor penguins can also

drink salt water in the summer, he added. People have been gather-

ing on the beach to watch the penguin on the beach on North Island’s western coast.

Some photographed him as he stood quietly on the sand or lay in the surf.

Arrests after ‘burglar’ gets stabbed to death THREE PEOPLE have been arrested after a suspected burglar was stabbed to death at a home in Salford. Reports said the 26-year-old man was part of a gang attempting to get into a property on Ethel Avenue in Pendlebury just before midnight on Wednesday. The owner of the property is believed to have disturbed the group, who were wearing balaclavas, as they began their raid. Locals said they understood intruders tried to break into the back door of

Page 14

the home, then police received a 999 call from a woman at the house. The dead man - who has not yet been named - was apparently carried away from the house by the other gang members. Greater Manchester Police said an investigation was in its early stages. “Police were called to an address on Ethel Avenue following reports of a burglary and a group of men carrying an injured man on to Hospital Road,” a statement said. “On arrival at Hospital Road, police found a 26-year-old

man with stab wounds. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.” “Two men and a woman have been arrested and remain in police custody.” A cordon has been put up around the terrace house, which backs on to open scrubland. The death comes just 48 hours after David Cameron vowed to bring in stronger measures to protect those who are forced to defend their property. “We will put beyond doubt that homeowners and small shopkeepers who use reasonable force to defend

themselves or their properties will not be prosecuted,” he said The reform will mean they can use reasonable force if they believe their property is under threat. Currently, they can only act if they feared for their lives. It was one of several proposals announced by the Prime Minister as he took a tougher stance on law and order, appeasing the Tory right. The change is expected to be introduced into the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offences Bill within the next few months.

George Clooney now single again

HOLLYWOOD star George Clooney has split up from his Italian girlfriend, actress Elisabetta Canalis. In a joint statement the pair, who dated for two years, said: “We are not together any more. “It is very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.” The news of the break-up comes just weeks after Canalis said that she hoped to marry one day. Clooney has vowed never to walk down the aisle again following his failed marriage to American actress Talia Balsam, who he married in

1989. They divorced in 1993. The Ocean’s Eleven star, considered to be one of the world’s sexiest bachelors, has since been seen with a string of beautiful women. He dated British model Lisa Snowdon and former cocktail waitress Sarah Larson before being introduced to Canalis by mutual friends in Rome. She is a familiar face on Italian television and had a minor role in the film Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo in 2005. The pair were seen together last Tuesday as they visited a restaurant near Clooney’s home on Lake Como in Italy. Clooney is currently in London filming his new film “Gravity” with Sandra Bullock.

FBI’s TV Ad THE FBI is launching a nationwide television blitz to track down one of America’s ‘10 most wanted’ - by highlighting the woman on the run with him. Catherine Greig is the longtime partner of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger, an 81-yearold Boston gangster wanted in connection with 19 murders. The last credible sighting of the couple, who have been on the run for 16 years, was in 2002 when they were believed to be in London together. There have been reported sightings all over Europe. The FBI is running the 30second public service announcement in areas where they believe Bulger and Greig may still have connections. We are trying to reach a different audience that will produce new leads in the case. Special Agent Richard DesLauriers said: “The FBI believes that publicising Catherine Greig’s photo and characteristics among her contemporaries will lead to a tip about her whereabouts and ultimately to the arrest of Bulger.” The announcement will air during shows that have a high percentage of female viewers in the same age group as Greig.

Page 16

It is hoped that “a friend, co-worker, neighbour, hair stylist, manicurist, doctor or dentist” might recognise her. “We are trying to reach a different audience that will produce new leads in the case,” said special agent Richard Teahan, who has been tracking Bulger since 2006. The TV slot highlights the 21-year age gap between Greig and Bulger. The FBI says she loves animals, frequents beauty salons, is likely to have wellkept teeth as a former dental hygienist. She has also undergone plastic surgery. The publicity blitz will also see images of the pair appear on digital billboards in New York’s Times Square and other locations around the country. The FBI says Greig, 60, is not implicated in the crimes Bulger is wanted for but that she is a federal fugitive wanted for harbouring him. He is accused of murder, extortion, money laundering and narcotic distribution and is described as extremely violent and dangerous. A reward of $100,000 (£61,000) is on offer for information leading to Greig’s arrest. The reward for her partner stands at $2m (£1.2m) - the largest ever offered for a “Top 10” domestic fugitive.

Obama: 33,000 to leave Afghanistan BARACK OBAMA has announced plans to start withdrawing American troops from Afghanistan, with 10,000 to leave by the end of this year, followed by 23,000 in 2012. In a TV address outlining a shift in US policy, the President said after the initial reduction more troops would be pulled out at a steady pace as Afghans take over their own security by 2014. “America, it is time to focus on nation-building here at home,” he said. About 70,000 US soldiers will remain after the 33,000 leave - about twice the number when Mr Obama took office. He said the US was able to bring troops home because al Qaeda was under more pressure than at any time since the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. Mr Obama said the US would join initiatives aimed at reconciling the Afghan people, including the Taliban, as the Afghan government and security forces are strengthened. The announcement comes as William Hague reportedly

confirmed that peace talks have taken place between the British Government and the Taliban. “This is the beginning - but not the end - of our effort to wind down this war,” Mr Obama said, adding that huge challenges remain there. The Taliban has said the troop withdrawal was only a “symbolic step” and claims of progress were “baseless”. Soon afterwards French President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the progressive withdrawal of France’s troops from Afghanistan on a timetable matching the US troop pullout. One of the most interesting might be found in the admission by the US and the UK that talks with the Taliban are now on-going in the

search for a political settlement. The withdrawal of France’s approximately 4,000 troops will take place in coordination “with our allies and with Afghan authorities,” and “in a proportional manner comparable to the withdrawal of American troops,” a statement from Mr Sarkozy’s office said Meanwhile, Prime Minister David Cameron has said the speed of UK troop withdrawals would be based on conditions on the ground. The two leaders discussed the decision by telephone on Wednesday afternoon amid pressure on the PM to speed the drawdown of British forces from the combat zone. Downing Street said Mr

Cameron had “fully agreed” with the President’s assessment of the Afghan situation and they discussed the implications of the US timetable. Nato’s secretary general welcomed Mr Obama’s announcement, saying it followed close consultations with Nato allies and partners. “Those [surge] troops were part of an international effort to turn the tide in Afghanistan,” said Anders Fogh Rasmussen. “We can see the tide is turning. The Taliban are under pressure. “The Afghan security forces are getting stronger every day and the transition to Afghan security lead is on track to be completed in 2014.”

John Galliano tells court of triple addiction FASHION DESIGNER John Galliano has told a Paris court trying him for making antiSemitic comments he is addicted to alcohol, sleeping tablets and valium. The 50-year-old was fired as creative director for fashion house Dior in March after a video showed him apparently drunk, telling a woman in a cafe he “loved Hitler” and that her parents might have been gassed in a Nazi camp. The video was allegedly filmed in December and led to complaints of two incidents of anti-Semitic comments being made by the British designer. He arrived at the Paris court dressed in black, sporting a pencil moustache with his long hair hanging down his back.

His appearance at the trial is the first time he has been seen in public for months. If he is found guilty, Galliano faces a fine of up to 22,000 euro (around £19,500) and a six-month prison sentence. Since he was fired he has

been treated for substance abuse problems. His lawyer has said they were to blame for his behaviour. “One obvious thing is that John Galliano was ill,” Aurelian Hamelle said. “He had a triple addiction to alcohol, benzodiazepine

(valium) and sleeping pills.” The lawyer added Galliano himself was baffled to see how he acted in the video. The designer has repeatedly apologised for the recorded remarks and denies being anti-Semitic. Five people were to give evidence in the trial, which ended late on Wednesday, and a verdict in the case is due on September 8. Two women who were sitting next to him during the February 24 incident have said they did not hear him say anything anti-Semitic. However, two Italian friends of the woman who was allegedly insulted by Galliano in December have confirmed her version of events. Galliano’s lawyer has said this demonstrates there is doubt about what was said. Galliano himself “does not remember because he was in an altered state”, Hemelle added.

The deadly dangers of leaving a pooch alone here in baking-hot car ACCION del Sol have issued a reminder to dog-owners about the dangers of leaving their pets in unattended cars, especially with the weather back to its hottest now. Marion Fernandez, who runs the Aktiontier-sponsored refuge, warns: “The inside of a car can get very hot, very quickly. If you leave your dog in the car, the heat can have a detrimental effect on the animal a lot sooner than you may think. “When the temperature reaches 22C/72F outside, the temperature inside a car can reach 47C/117F within an hour. Leaving your window open, or covering your windscreen, has little effect on cooling the vehicle down. “Dogs in hot cars can begin to pant very quickly, which can be the start of heatstroke. And once that happens, the poor animal can die really quickly.” She adds: If you see a dog locked in a car during the hot weather, please contact the local police immediately - you just might save its life.” On a happier note, the centre’s Fun Dog Run takes place next Saturday (2nd July) at the

Granadilla refuge. You are all welcome to enter with your own dog, or you can “borrow” a willing 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, and there are lots of categories and prizes for the winners. The event starts at 10.30am, to be followed by a Foam Party (be prepared - bring your swimwear!) and all the usual entertainment and activities. These include mini-golf, ball games, children’s workshop, music, a salad buffet, yummy cakes and lots more fun for all the family. For more information, contact the refuge on 922 778 630, or their Facebook eventpage link https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=171 476136240452 Please visit Accion Del Sol if you are looking to adopt a dog. The refuge is open MondayFriday 3-6pm and is situated at junction 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER the ecological wind farm at Granadilla Poligono Industrial Estate.

It was commissioned by Controller of BBC One, Danny Cohen and devised by Andy Brereton. The BBC executive producer is Antonia Hurford-Jones. The series will transmit on Saturdays on BBC One later this summer.

ITV1 presents another new episode of the sixpart wildlife documentary series which focuses on conservation work in Africa. British vet Steve Leonard has gone to the Erindi Game Reserve in Namibia to join a wildlife team who are working on returning an African wilderness back to the wild. The beautiful Erindi Game Reserve is a private reserve

of 71,000 hectares and its borders include such varied landscapes as mountains and savannahs. ‘Erindi’ means ‘the place of water’ in the local Herero language. Over the course of the series so far, Steve has helped with a breeding programme for the endangered Painted Dog, gone on the lookout for an elusive male leopard and the rare black rhino, met some

unruly bull elephants on the reserve and got handson with some Nile crocodiles which needed relocating to a new waterhole. In this week’s episode, Steve has a close encounter with an extremely protective elephant mother and her calf. He also works with a female hyena and her cub who are struggling to survive after their clan was killed by lions.

Perfume – Something Old, Something New Ep 1/3 9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR This new three-part series about the global perfume industry for BBC Four explores the astonishing creativity behind a commodity that uses single molecules to whisper to the subconscious, trigger memories and spark

the emotions. From inside this multi-billiondollar business, the series follows the stories of perfumers, scientists and marketing gurus on their quest to win over the next generation of consumer. Episode one visits Paris, where the ancient house of Guerlain looks outside the

family for the first time for its next perfumer-in-chief. Meanwhile, at Estee Lauder in New York, executives are devising a mass-market fragrance for designer Tommy Hilfiger. Getting the concept and packaging right is as important as the smell. But will buyers get this liquid rendition of rock ‘n’ roll?

Lewis recommissioned by ITV One of ITV1’s best loved and most consistently performing dramas, Lewis, has been recommissioned by the channel. Attracting a regular audience of more than 7 million viewers, Lewis regularly features in the top three most watched dramas in the UK on both ITV and the BBC. Kevin Whately, who has been playing Lewis for nearly 25 years, and Laurence Fox will both reprise their roles as Inspector Robbie Lewis and his partner DS James Hathaway investigating very modern murders amidst the exquisite architecture of the ancient University of Oxford. An ITV Studios production, Lewis is produced by Chris Burt who has been the series producer since the launch of Lewis in 2006. The executive producers are Mammoth Screen’s Michele Buck and Damien

Page 32

Timmer, who continue to work on the series for ITV Studios. Three of the new films are currently titled ‘Generation of Vipers’, ‘The Age of Foolishness’ and ‘Death of the Author’. ‘Generation of Vipers’ is written by Patrick Harbinson whilst the other episodes in this series will be written by Rachel Bennette, Simon Block and Russell Lewis, who created Lewis as a spin-off from Inspector Morse in which Kevin Whately starred with John Thaw. The Director of the first episode will be David O’Neill (Law & Order: UK), and Toby Stephens (Jane Eyre, Die Another Day) will be guest starring. The new series will once again feature beautiful locations in and around the city of Oxford, including the Cherwell and Isis rivers and the magnificent university colleges. “Lewis and Hathaway have

become a formidable partnership not only in terms of cracking murders cases, but also in terms of their popularity with ITV1 viewers, “ said Controller of Drama Commissioning Sally Haynes. “ We’re thrilled they are returning to work on some great new stories.” Executive Producer Michele Buck said: “Lewis and Hathaway’s partnership has grown in popularity with every series as viewers enjoy the fine writing, acting and excellent production values Lewis has to offer.” Added Executive Producer Damien Timmer: “We’re delighted to be producing a set of new films with Chris Burt and have two strong additions to the writing team this year, with Rachel Bennette (Bel Ami starring Robert Pattinson) and Simon Block (the award winning The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall) both joining us.”

Looking ahead Stephen Fry, Victoria Wood, and Christopher Eccleston have been cast to star in The Borrowers alongside Robbie Sheehan (Misfits), Aisling Loftus (Dive), Sharon Horgan (Free Agents, Pulling) and Shaun Dooley (Exile, South Riding) in an action-packed adventure film for all the family on BBC One this Christmas. Written by Ben Vanstone (Merlin, EastEnders) and produced by Working Title Television, the 90-minute film is an adaptation of Mary Norton’s classic children’s books that brings the world of the tiny Borrowers who live under our floorboards into the 21st century. Aisling Loftus plays Arrietty Clock, a headstrong teenage Borrower who is desperate to explore life outside her hidden family home. Her parents, Pod and Homily – played by Christopher Eccleston and Sharon Horgan – are terrified of the world of the “human beans” and are fiercely protective of their daughter. Arrietty sneaks out one night and befriends James,

a lonely boy who lives above her in the house with his father Robert Millman – played by Shaun Dooley. This leads to a world of trouble when the Borrowers’ hidden home is discovered by his formidable grandmother and they are forced to abandon their home and venture into the big wide world. Victoria Wood plays Grandma Driver. She knows the “little people” exist, she’s always known, and is determined to hunt them out of her house. Stephen Fry plays scientist Professor Mildeye who also knows of the little people and their existence. Determined to restore his reputation and resurrect his academic career, he’ll go to any length to capture them and reveal their identity to the world. Robbie Sheehan plays Spiller; a leather jacketed tearaway who takes quite a shine to Arriety. She’s not quite sure what to make of this, but when her parents are captured by the evil Professor Mildeye, she is forced to enlist both Spiller’s and human bean James’ help.

They go on a series of daring adventures to try and outsmart Mildeye and return the Clock family to their former home in time for Christmas. Danny Cohen, Controller BBC One, says: “The Borrowers will be part of a really special family Christmas on BBC One and with with its stellar line-up it is set to be a truly wonderful programme.” Ben Stephenson, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, says: “A brilliant and bold contemporary version of this classic tale with all the charm of the original but with a thrilling, moving and funny modern sensibility written and directed by two of our most exciting young talents with an amazing cast – it’s the perfect Christmas present!” Juliette Howell, Head of Television, Working Title, says: “I couldn’t be more thrilled with Ben’s take on this classic story. It feels fresh, original and above all funny. The perfect Christmas treat.” Filming begins this summer for five weeks.

SUE MCDONALD Common Sense Furnishings Email: sue.mcdonald@canarianweekly.com

You’d look that much better with a facelift

IN many complexes originally sold some years ago, the properties were supplied already furnished, and this furniture was of excellent quality. Good examples can be found in the Parque Santiago complexes, Tenerife Royal Gardens, Royal Palm and Port Royale, among others. I have visited many apartments recently where the sofa furnishings (sofas, curtains, bed covers, etc.) need renewing, but the furniture itself is still in relatively good condition. The problem is that if you rent out your apartment, particularly via the internet, a lot will depend on the photos you are able to present of it. Viewers’ first impressions will be very important because, in today’s market, there is plenty of choice for them. Therefore, in order to be competitive, you need to

Page 38

present your property in the best possible light. Any photos will be doing the talking for you, and if they let you down, there is a real danger that you could lose out on potential rentals Unfortunately, that pinestyle furniture from all the above complexes and many more, although in good condition, may look a little dated. However, there is another option to replacing the lot: a refurbishment programme at a fraction of the cost. Re-spraying in white, for example, will lift your furniture and make your property look much cleaner and more modern. And the price is a fraction of replacement value. Also, the job is done properly: rubbed down, sprayed professionally and sealed in a custom-made oven. This gives a flawless and long-lasting finish. Generally speaking, if the apartment is more than 10 years old, most clients will need a combination of re-

upholstery, maybe a few new items and some furniture respraying to make their apartment look fresh and new. We can visit the property and advise on what can be refurbished or reupholstered, and what needs to be replaced. Estimates are given without any obligation to proceed. Equally, you can complete the refurbishment in stages, as the budget and vacancies in your rental programme permit. Where there are budgetary restraints, or where you do not want to invest too much money in the property, this option can enable you to achieve the effect you need to keep your property at the forefront of the rental programme. Your property can have a complete facelift at a great saving for you. So why not come into Deco Nuevo, next to Ofipapel in Los Cristianos, or ring the number shown and we can visit the property with you.

New smartphone by Nokia aims to bite Apple rivals NOKIA has gone headto-head with Apple with its new smartphone - using technology being scrapped next year. The N9 uses the firm’s Meego software, which will be ditched when the firm’s new tie-up with Microsoft will see smartphones using Windows introduced next year. It is Nokia’s latest weapon in its quest to corner the smartphone market. Once the undisputed leader in mobile phones, Nokia has rapidly lost ground to Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android. News of the N9 brought scepticism from the City, which believes it will become obsolete within months. “It seems pointless to launch a phone like the N9 on a platform that has been cut by management,” RBS analyst Didier Scemama in London said in a research note.

Nokia’s head of design Marko Ahtisaari, in a dig at Apple’s iPhone 4, said the N9’s polycarbonate body would give the phone “extremely good antenna performance, so unlike some competitor products, you do not need to hold it in special way to have reliable phone calls”. Nokia is still the world’s

largest mobile phone maker, but has been slipping badly in the smartphone market, where it now has a 26% share - down from 42% a year ago. To turn around its fortunes, in February Nokia unveiled the deal to use Microsoft software instead of its own dated Symbian platform.

Homes now worth under their cost five years ago Some 3.5 million homes bought in the UK over the last five years are now worth less than their purchase price, according to property website Zoopla. Homeowners who bought at the peak of the market are worst affected, the research found. More than 93% of homes bought in 2007 are now worth less than their owners paid for them. And 89% of properties bought the following year are now worth less than the purchase price. However, the majority of the homes snapped up in 2009 when prices plunged, are now worth more. Nicholas Leeming, of Zoopla, said: “The most affected areas are in the North East, partly the North West and some of the East Midlands. “The least affected areas are, not suprisingly, London and the South East. “And one of the most suprising things about Central London has been the demand from international buyers for residential property in the centre of London that has radiated out, to an extent, to the Home Counties.”

Lavender’s a blooming marvel all year round

Baa! Sheepdog Ci is really terrified of flock of sheep

A SHEEPDOG called Ci has become an internet sensation - thanks to a video that shows him running away from sheep on his Somerset Farm. The four-year-old Border Collie has a deep-rooted fear of the creatures, making it impossible for him to do the job he was theoretically born to do. According to his owner Jane Lippington, who shot the video, Ci’s problem developed when he was a puppy and was placed in a field of sheep. He was petrified, so now, when tasked with rounding up the 100-strong flock, he is more than likely than not to turn and run. “If they run away from him, he will go after them and act like a proper sheepdog,” said Mrs Lippington. “But the

LAVENDER is the most versatile of plants because it can be used as a fragrant hedge or as a focal point in a flower garden. And it grows in abundance here on the Island. It is very durable, as long as it is planted in a sunny location and gets at least four hours of direct sunlight daily. In fact, the more sunlight the lavender receives, the better. It also thrives in dry condi-

tions and grows on and on for years quite happily. So, taking these facts in to consideration, it makes for an ideal garden plant in Tenerife. But what some people may not know is that lavender also has a place in the herb or vegetable garden. Lavender blooms can be found in culinary kitchens around the world in such dishes as ice cream, jams, jellies, cakes, tea and even in lemonade. To use lavender for culinary purposes, first pick the

24 June 2011 - 30 June 2011

blooms in the early morning and place the stems in a glass of water, if using the same day. If using some other time, consider drying the blooms by gathering the stems and hanging upside down in a well-ventilated room. Once dry, remove the blooms from the stems and place in a glass jar, to be stored away from direct sunlight. When employing lavender for cooking purposes, use the organically-grown variety only and look for English lavender

moment they turn and face him he runs away. “Sheep can be quite aggressive if they think they have the upper hand – they stamp their feet and gang up in numbers and act like an army. “The only way to make it work is for me to get behind them first and shoo them so they run away and then Ci joins in. It just means a lot more work for us to do.” Although he’s a scardy dog, Mrs Lippington says she could not imagine life without Ci on her 200-acre farm in Somerset. “He might be the worst sheepdog in Britain but there’s no way we would be without Ci, he’s part of the family,” she said. “I took some footage of it simply because I thought it was funny. “I don’t think he would get very far on One Man and His Dog, he’s more suited to You’ve Been Framed.”

(Lavandula. angustifolia and Lavandula. munstead). This type has the most fragrance and taste. If using lavender just for fragrance, dry the flowers as described, store and use in potpourri, sachets, and even in candles. But do not discard the stems after the blooms have dried because they still contain fragrance. They are a wonderful addition to a cold winter’s night fire, not that we need many of those here, unless you are up on the mountains.

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

All messed up ...and trendy!

THE sun is bursting forth with real venom now after a strange, cloud-filled winter and spring, and the dangers of sunburn, certainly for tourists, cannot be stressed enough.

YEAH that’s right - if you’ve got any natural waves, then your right on trend. The scruffy curl is back or, to put it another way, Beach Hair! It’s ideal for the lazy life here in Tenerife. You’ll need plenty of mousse to scrunch, or leave to dry naturally, plus serum to define. And never brush the hair, but always use fingers to style. You’ll also need plenty of layers and a dishevelled cut to promote those waves and curls. But don’t use this new look to excuse unbrushed and unwashed hair. Keep it clean and fresh.

Fringe benefits FORGET that new dress, and don’t even think about new shoes. Instead, opt for a new fringe! The new “must have” style for this season is “The Fringe”. It totally transforms any face shape, and will make your look stand out from the crowd. From blunt and heavy to side and sexy, asymmetrical to choppy, the choices are endless. Even if you want a tidy-up on your basic haircut, a fringe will add another dimension. Try not to get heavy fringes too short. They should rest over your eyebrows and not above, as doing so could make you look permanently surprised, or like an eight-year-old girl. Having a fringe put in, especially a heavy one (as in the picture below), really brings out your eyes, opening up your face and adding width to cheek bones. Ask your stylist to recommend a fringe to suit you.

HOT on the heels of “Wonder Product” Moroccan Oil comes the manuacturer’s own shampoo and conditioner to complement the oil. For extreme damage, too, there’s the masque to repair and fortify damaged and broken hair. All the Moroccan oil range contain the magic ingredient Argan oil 100% natural and, among other

fine ingredients, it will help to return your dry, tired hair to its former glory. The effects are instant and, above all, these benefits will also protect your hair against the harmful rays of the sun, and heat damage from your irons. In my opinion, it’s a 5star product range and is now available in the salon.

It seldom seems to be that sweltering over here (this week apart), especially with a cool breeze on the sea front, but that serves only to mask the searing heat, and holidaymakers are advised to stay in the shade for much of the first few days. It’s a tough call because we all love the sun on our backs and, after suffering the typical English weather, the last thing our holiday-makers want to do is shelter from the sun. Inevitably, many of them

skin which cause redness and swelling. 3. Slap on refrigerated aloe gel. Aloe is a botanical with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Store it in the fridge and you’ll get the added bonus of cold temperatures - and reduced swelling. 4. Rehydrate! After a weekend in the sun, water is important, particularly if your skin is bright-red and sore. Liquids are critical to rehydrating the body and replenishing lost fluids from the sun. 5. And if you can’t stand to drink water, try guzzling decaf iced-tea with mint for an added antioxidant punch. 6. Believe it or not, tomatoes also do the trick. Cut one in half and rub the raw part all over the sore section of your skin. It will take away that stinging feeling in minutes.

Picasso raises Millions for medical research MILLIONS of pounds have been raised for medical research after a Picasso masterpiece was sold at auction. The Spanish artist’s portrait of his lover, Marie-Therese Walter, exceeded expectations when it was sold at Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art sale in London. Last year, the painting, called Jeune fille endormie, was donated anonymously to the University of Sydney on the condition it was sold with the proceeds funding

end up with sunburn anyway, and that can be particularly nasty and painful. But as long as there are no heat blisters, you can overcome the first 24 hours of mild sunburn, even though it still stings and causes discomfort. With this in mind, Skin Cancer Foundation spokeswoman Francesca Fusco offers these handy hints: 1. Make cold milk compresses by soaking a clean cloth in a bowl with equal parts of milk, ice cubes and water. Then hold the cloth on the burned area for five minutes. Repeat three times. The fat, protein and pH of milk have a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. What’s more, cold temperatures constrict blood vessels and reduce swelling. 2. Take a pill! Aspirin acts as an anti-inflammatory, suppressing chemicals in the

scientific research. The rarely-seen piece, created in 1935, was expected to raise between £9m and £12m but was sold for £13,481,250 to an anonymous bidder. Giovanna Bertazzoni, director of Impressionist and Modern Art at the auction house, said it was “an absolute jewel of a painting by one of the great artistic geniuses of Western art”. She added: “Bursting with colour and luring the viewer into the intimate sanctity of Picasso’s love for MarieTherese. “We are thrilled to have realised a strong price for

Sydney University’s Picasso, especially knowing that the proceeds will benefit such a worthy cause.” The university’s vice-chancellor, Dr Michael Spence, said: “When they gave us this remarkable work our donor said ‘this painting is going to change the lives of many people’. “They were right. We are grateful for their extraordinary generosity and delighted with the outcome of the auction.” He said the money would go towards research into obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

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

Professor highlighting problem of declining mental health doctors A LEADING psychiatrist has warned of the “massive problem” of the depleting numbers of mental health doctors. Professor Dinesh Bhugra, outgoing president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, told the Guardian that not enough British doctors were training as psychiatrists while visa restrictions meant foreign doctors could no longer fill the gap. He said 14% of consultants’ posts in the UK were either unfilled or filled by a locum. An additional 209 consultants intended to retire or resign soon. “This is a huge, a massive problem, said Prof Bhugra. “We will be left with a dangerous vacuum of help for people with mental health disorders. “Otherwise, we’ll be forced to get special dispensation from the Government to recruit heavily from countries who can ill afford to lose their mental health professionals.

“Society will be overwhelmed by the demand of those in need if the government doesn’t act now.” A research paper by the Royal College, to be published next month, shows the number of medical graduates accepting offers of psychiatry training posts in England and Wales fell from 184 in 2009 to 158 in 2010. A Department of Health spokeswoman said: “Mental health is a cross-government priority. We published No Health Without Mental Health, our cross-government mental health outcomes strategy, to drive up standards in services and improve the nation’s mental health. “The strategy makes clear that mental health services should be just as important as physical health services, such as those for cancer and heart disease. “We have supported the Royal Colleges of GPs and Psychiatrists to develop advice and support for commissioning effective mental health services.”

Bold mothers get them out to prove that breast is best THE number of new mums throughout the UK who start breastfeeding is on the rise, with more than eight out of 10 new-borns reaping the benefits. The 2010 data, revealed by the NHS Information Centre, shows an impressive increase from six out of 10 babies breastfed 20 years ago. Yet the report follows the revelation that the Department of Health in England has axed funding for Britain’s National Breastfeeding Awareness Week, which has been running all this week. Amazingly, hundreds of mums bared their breasts in front of stunned shoppers at Manchester’s Trafford Centre on Monday to highlight the health benefits of breastfeeding. Mothers of all ages, some accompanied by their partners, descended on The Grand Staircase to feed their babies and promote the start

of Awareness Week. “It’s not every day you see that many breasts while out doing your shopping,” the Daily Mail quoted an amazed onlooker as saying. “I suppose it’s a good way of getting people to listen to the message.” A breakdown shows that breastfeeding rates last year were higher in England than in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, although numbers

have risen in most areas. The report covers babies who are initially breastfed including those who have been put to the breast only once. More detailed data on the proportion of women still breastfeeding six weeks later and when their child is about six months old, will be published next year. Campaigners have accused ministers of cutting funding

for a network of regional infant-feeding co-ordinators, who train staff and offer advice on feeding babies. The report shows that 90% of women in managerial and professional jobs breastfeed their child initially, dropping to 74% of those in routine or manual jobs, and 71% of those who have never worked. Older mums are also more likely to breastfeed (87% over the age of 30) compared with 58% of mothers under 20. The data was gathered from almost 16,000 women and showed a rise from 76% to 83% in initial breastfeeding in England between 2005 and 2010. In Wales, the figure rose from 67% to 71%, and from 70% to 74% in Scotland. For Northern Ireland, there was no real change between 2005 and 2010. Marianne Monie, chair of the Breastfeeding Network, said: “We want to see women fully supported with skilled help to breastfeed for as long as they want to continue.”

MS sufferers would trim welfare bill if they were given more jobs MOST multiple sclerosis sufferers in Britain who want to work could find jobs if more action was taken to help them. Yet they are missing out on an estimated 18 years of their working lives, according to a report by the Work Foundation. The Foundation called on the Government, employers and

healthcare professionals to address the “needless loss”, adding that helping MS sufferers to work would make huge savings in the welfare bill. Greater employer-awareness and more co-ordinated action could support the majority of people with MS who are willing and able to work, leading to “significant” government savings and improved quality of

24 June 2011 - 30 June 2011

life for those affected, says the report. While many MS sufferers want to work, they are often reluctant to tell their employers about their condition. It means they miss out on interventions such as flexible working and modifications to the workplace, which could improve their ability to stay in work significantly, said the

Work Foundation. The report’s author, Stephen Bevan, said: “The UK is not doing enough to support people with MS to stay in work. At present, 44% of them retire early, which is many more than the European average of 35%. “Work can have positive effects on health and wellbeing, while keeping employees on would boost the economy

through benefits savings and increased income tax.” He adds: “Employees may not ask for assistance at work through fear of discrimination and potential job loss, and such fears may not be unfounded. “To get support, it is important for employees with MS to inform their employers early on. However, this must be met

with a good understanding of the disease, particularly its unseen symptoms and fluctuating nature.” Nicola Russell, director of services at the MS Trust, said: “MS is diagnosed classically in people aged between 25-35, when work is a very large part of their life and their future earning potential.”

You just can’t beat tasty chicken salad! THE sun is shining, the kids are off school over here for the next three months, and the beckons. So mum just knows it’s picnic time again. Either that or she spends a fortune in cafes trying to please her offspring with cold drinks and ice creams! So, what to give them because they certainly won’t want the usual Sunday offering of cold ham, cheese and boiled eggs and lettuce for the umpteenth time? How about a real treat and one which will definitely capture their attentions long enough to keep them out of the water for a while. Here are two recipes, courtesy of the BBC, which won’t take long to prepare and should whet their appetites. Only problem is that dad may well want an action replay on his day off! Chicken salad with couscous and oranges Ingredients 2 large handfuls couscous 1 lemon, juice only 3 oranges, 2 juice only, 1 left whole couple glugs of fruity olive oil salt and freshly-ground black pepper handful chicken meat from a leftover roast chicken handful chopped fresh chives handful fresh basil leaves (more if you fancy) handful pea shoots Preparation Put the couscous in a bowl and pour over some boiling water (it should cover the grains by a couple of centimetres or so). Leave for about 15 minutes, until the couscous has absorbed the liquid. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and the orange juice with the olive oil and season well with salt and freshlyground black pepper, adding more olive oil if desired. Pour the dressing over the cooked

Page 42

couscous and let it soak the dressing up for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, peel the remaining orange by cutting the ends off, placing it on a chopping board and cutting down the sides with a sharp knife to remove the skin and pith. Cut the orange into good-sized chunks. Add the orange chunks, chicken and herbs to the couscous and mix gently. Don’t over-mix; it’s about a lightness of touch. Divide the pea shoots between two plates or shallow dishes and then gently top each with the chicken couscous salad. And for afters, here’s another special treat for the kids (and for poor old mum): Fresh plum, raspberry (or strawberry) and pistachio cake Here’s how to use up a glut of plums and raspberries in this fruity-layered sponge cake, flecked with green pistachios. Ingredients 50g/2oz shelled pistachios 175g/6oz butter, softened 175g/6oz caster sugar 3 free-range eggs

175g/6oz self-raising flour 1 lemon, zest and juice 400g/14oz fresh plums,

stones removed, flesh cut into quarters 400g/14oz raspberries /

strawberries icing sugar, to dust crème fraîche, to serve

Preparation Preheat the oven to 180C/375F/gas 4. Grease and line a 20cm/8in round cake tin. Technique Tip the pistachios into a food processor and blend until coarsely ground. Add the butter, sugar, eggs, self-raising flour, lemon zest and juice, and blend until combined to a smooth batter. Spoon half the cake batter into the tin, scatter half the plums and half the raspberries/strawberries on top of the batter, then top with the remaining cake mixture followed by the remainder of the fruit Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes, or until goldenbrown and the cakes springs back when pressed lightly. Allow to cool in the tin. To serve, remove from the tin, sprinkle the top with icing sugar and cut into slices. Serve with a dollop of crème fraîche alongside.

Ugh! Some UHT milk really does taste abysmal SPAIN’S Consumers and Users Organisation (OCU) believes the quality of UHT milk is worse now than it was 10 years ago.

Homemade ice cream - it’s just a whisk away IF THE kids don’t like the idea of a fancy pudding, how about good, old-fashioned ice cream? Here’s an easy vanilla recipe that does not require an in ice-cream maker.

yolks in a large bowl then slowly whisk in the hot cream mixture.

Pour the mixture through a fine sieve into another bowl and whisk in the vanilla seeds.

Pour the mixture into a freezer-proof container and freeze for 2-3 hours, or until set.

And after analysing 47 brands of UHT full milk, it says the difference in quality is “abysmal” and that dearest is not always best.. The OCU tests determined that the content of some brands were “fraudulent”. Some were found to contain less fat than they should and included phosphates, which were not noted on the product label, or had little nutritional value. One brand, Polesa, had the lowest mark on the league table - 10 out of a possible 100 - and results suggested the milk used was “too old” and that products used in cheese-making, such as whey, had been added. The OCU has called on the Spanish government for stricter controls on milk products and on the processing before they reach the

shelves. The organisation complains of an “alarming lack of control’ used by some manufacturers, and says the fall in quality is down to the regulations being relaxed since 2006 - and to the intensive production system. Pascual got top marks, with 80 out of 100, and the OCU asseses it as its “top buy” because of its best pricequality ratio and high content of calcium. The OCU advises customers not to buy any of the 10 worst-marked brands, which can be seen in the full report on its web page www.ocu.org/leche

Ingredients 2 vanilla pods 500ml/16fl oz double cream 70g/3oz sugar 3 egg yolks Preparation Halve the vanilla pods lengthways and scrape out the seeds. Add the pods to the cream and bring to the boil, then add the sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Meanwhile, whisk the egg

Fly into Fuerteventura - with the wind beneath your wings

FUERTEVENTURA, second only in size to Tenerife and oldest of the Canary Islands at 20 million years of age, is famed for being a really windy place. It has 152 beaches, some of which are beautiful, white and sandy while others are covered with dark volcanic pebbles. And naturally, the sandy beaches are a target for eager windsurfers, and watersports enthusiasts. Sandwiched between Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, the island has the smallest population of all the Canary Islands, with around 70,000 inhabitants, and is the least developed. But with an average annual

Page 44

temperature of only 20ºC, it goes against the usual Canaries’ trend and makes for a pleasant atmosphere all year round. It is divided into two areas, the largest of which is la Maxorata to the north, where most of the inhabitants can be found. The other area is the south-western Península de Jandía, which is an arid, sandy place. Fuerteventura has an agricultural and a fishing industry, and the famous Majorero cheese is made locally from the milk of the indigenous majorera goat. Tourism, now an essential industry there, is the island’s biggest source of income, and the ports of Puerto del Rosario, Tarajal, Corralejo and Morro Jable are always extremely busy. And visitors are well catered for because

Fuerteventura has some excellent hotels with superb facilities. A great way to see the place is to hire a car, or to sit back and enjoy an organised coach tour because the island is easy to get around by road. The international airport, called El Matorral, is just 4kms from the capital, Puerto del Rosario, and has flights to destinations all over the world. It also connects to the other Canary Islands. As well as flying, you can get to other islands by ferry Puerto del Rosario, Morrojable and Corralejo all have crossings to Santa Cruz, in Tenerife, Playa Blanca and Arrecife Lanzarote), Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) and La Palma’s Santa Cruz. Fuerteventura is divided into six districts: La Oliva, Betancuria, Antigua, Puerto

del Rosario, Pájara and Tuineje, while Los Lobos is a tiny island opposite La Oliva. Being so old, it has a long history and was conquered in 1404 by the French - Jean de Bethencourt and Gadifer de la Salle were responsible for creating the island’s capital city, Betancuria, an inland settlement with a booming port, which went hand in hand with an ever-increasing population. In the 15th Century, the island was conquered by the Spanish and became part of the Castilla kingdom. And from the 19th Century onwards, the islands were fully integrated as part of Spain. In 1839, Betancuria passed its title of island capital to La Oliva, which then handed over to the city known as Puerto de Cabras, so called because the shepherds grazed their

goats there. Then, in 1956, it changed to its present name of Puerto del Rosario. All the island’s administrative headquarters, government buildings and commercial organisations were established there in order to take advantage of the boom in economic activity. Nowadays, it has 24,180 inhabitants, and its port and airport are always busy. There are many sites of consuming interest to visit, including Iglesia de Nuestra Señora del Rosario, the municipal library with many sections, and the Sculpture Park, comprising 50 sculptures by different artists, situated all over the city. Fuerteventura has lots of nature reserves aimed at conserving the island’s endemic species of plants and animals. Parque Natural de las Dunas de Corralejo y el Islote de Lobos is not only a real mouthful to say but also the most important nature reserve there, featuring vultures. In the charming inland villages, you can actually feel and breathe the history of the island, thanks to its wellpreserved architecture, while the tiny, hidden, fishing villages reveal their innermost secrets. Sleepy village squares mask their artisan workshops, while neat little chapels simply mark time, gazing out over a landscape dotted with goats, geckos and windmills. The highest point is Mount Jandía (807m) in the southwestern part of the island.

Other geographical features include Istmo de la Pared, which is 5 km wide and is the narrowest part of the island. Fuerteventura is often referred to as the Island of Eternal Spring. The sea adjusts the temperature, blowing the hot Sahara winds away from the island, whose name in English translates as “strong fortune” or “strong wind” - the Spanish word for wind being “viento”. Resort life serves up a host of sporting options, including golf and tennis, with surfboards and glass-bottomed boats eager to whisk you out to sea. Curiously, Puerto del Rosario is more of an industrial area and isn’t really geared up for tourism, although many people still visit the town from the nearby resort of Caleta de Fuste for shopping expeditions It has actually improved enormously in recent years, spreading inland, and there are more and more excellent shops. A few years ago came the introduction of industrial estates with cash ‘n’ carry warehouses, giving residents and visitors alike more choices at better prices. The harbour area is the oldest part of the city, where you will discover all those small alleys, lined with old Canarian-style houses. Fuerteventura is a fascinating island, especially appealing to anyone with a surfboard or sailboard, or goggles, snorkel and a pair of flippers. And, of course, to those who love windy, mysterious places.

It is set for release this summer, and Toyota claim it is the first car to bring “affordable, multimedia connectivity” to the supermini segment. This is the third generation Yaris, following on from the 1999 original and replacing the current car, which has been in production since 2005. The company are obviously pushing their systematic improvements over the current Yaris, including more interior space, lower fuel consumption and better quality. But the most striking thing is the infotainment system, and Toyota believe that 95% of

new models will feature a fullcolour, touch-screen infotainment screen. A coloured, multi-media interface isn’t new in the supermini sector - which includes the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo - but it is unheard of for such a huge majority of models to be fitted with it as a standard feature. Both the interior and exterior follow the corporate-styling lead of the current Prius, Urban Cruiser and Verso-S. So

there’s nothing overly exciting about this new Toyota, except that it appears to offer more space than the outgoing car. One of the greatest overall strengths of the Yaris is its impressive safety packages, and last year it adopted the Toyota Star Safety System as a standard feature. That includes anti-lock brakes, stability control and traction control, and this model is one of the few vehicles in its segment to offer

these safety features as standard equipment. The Yaris also has a simplistic, cute design, and decent fuel economy of 29/36mpg city/A-roads. So yes, overall, it definitely is a practical car for commuters. However, with top-scoring models like Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit in the class, the Yaris hasn’t really got the class to provide serious opposition. Firsly, the new 2011 Toyota Yaris has a bland interior com-

pared with those cars and, when you add features to spice it up, the price shoots up. Even basic options like power windows and doors are offered with package upgrades only. Unlike the Fiesta and Fit, the Yaris does not prioritise driver comfort. The dashboard is centralised, rather than in front of the driver, and seating is slightly uncomfortable. But to be fair to Toyota, they didn’t model the Yaris after high-performance, luxury vehicles. Rather, it was built for daily commuters who don’t want to spend a lot of money. And, as the company say: “In the end, the Toyota Yaris remains a sensible choice.” Initially, there will be three engines available: 1.0-litre and 1.33-litre VVTi petrol units, and a 1.4-litre diesel. No power outputs have been given, but in the

current Yaris they produce 68, 100 and 89bhp respectively. The 2011 version will be offered as a three-door and five-door hatchback, or a fourdoor sedan. Each comes with a five-speed manual or fourspeed automatic transmission and has identical fuel economies of 29/36 mpg city/highway. Prices are not to hand, but because the Yaris hasn’t changed that much in the past few years, you might consider buying a 2010 model to save a few quid. Didier Leroy, chief of Toyota Motor Europe, said: “With its new levels of ingenuity, efficiency and quality, we are confident it can build upon the Yaris’ previous success. “This will help Toyota rejuvenate their presence in Europe and move towards one million annual sales.”

Skoda out to hit 200mph mark CZECH firm Skoda are celebrating the 10th year of their vRS Octavia performance flagship with a 200mph attempt at Bonneville Speed Week in the States. The vRS, built in Britain by Skoda UK, now a performance icon among car fans, will make its high-speed attempt at the Bonneville Speed Week, held on the salt flats near Wendover, Utah, from 3rd-10th August The flats are famous for speed records, and the regular hot-rods and racers will be joined by Skoda this time. To attempt the magic double ton, the Octavia vRS has been modified because, as fast as the standard car is, its 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engine’s 200bhp isn’t quite man enough to achieve 200mph. The standard car stops accelerating at 149mph, so to help speed it up to the hoped-for 200mph, techni-

cians at Skoda UK’s Milton Keynes base have added a massive new turbocharger to the engine, and filled the fuel tank with some highoctane race fuel. The result is 600bhp, which is more three times the standard output. That should help the vRS achieve its goal, but Skoda’s engineers have also dropped the ride height and removed drag-producing items like wing mirrors. To conform to racing regulations, the interior is fitted with a full roll-cage, a fire extinguisher and a parachute to help it stop. But the vRS qualifies as a production car for the event, and it will run in the 2.0-litre production-car class. Robert Hazelwood, Director for Skoda UK, said: “This is a landmark anniversary, and going to Bonneville is a fitting tribute. “It’s also an ambitious project which might surprise a few people, but Skoda is all about engineering excellence and this car is pushing that to new limits.”

Would you like to play in the Oasis Fm Pool League? Match Report WELL, it looks like being a long, hot summer. And it could also be a long, hot, testing time for the teams coming up against Nauta A. Having lost just four games in their first five matches, they came up against a resurgent Cafe Rood and swatted them aside 8-0, with London hitting his second 180. Bar 180 A boss man Richard hit two maximums at Toscales Tornados to maintain his side’s 100% record, and Barracudarts Boys stuck seven into the Tavern to move up to seventh place. Gaffers and Yelas remain pointless after both losing again, while Target Army lost at Cozy Wanderers despite being 3-0 up.

Division 2 Cafe Rood B La Caña Lancers Marilyns Ourplace Playgirls Phoenix Flames Palms Sports Bar Summerland Hopefuls Trap Door Valle Vikings 2

The Pub put on a fine display to go 3-1 up against Phoenix Bar, with Grizzly on top form for the home team. A great night of darts ending up all-square after Bubbles held his nerve to take the trebles leg. Elsewhere, there were wins for the X-Men and Toscales Ensecan. Shock result of the night in Division 2 came at Cafe Rood B. Despite Betty recording her second 180 of the campaign, the home team crashed 7-1 against the Knights. Sunshine Bar are now top of the pile by a point after a 6-2 success at La Caña Lancers. Third-placed Sundowners made it two wins on the bounce, and Summerland Hopefuls are

Horoscopes of the week Cancer

(June 22nd-July 23rd) The sun has entered your sign and will boost your energy and vitality, so get ready to shine. Take time out to go over recent plans because, with a little more input, you could turn them from good plans to amazing ones. Face career challenges head-on to avoid ongoing frustration. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) If you’re worrying about a health issue, the best way to put your mind at rest is to get the answer from a professional, so if you’ve not already done so, book an appointment with your doctor. Uncertainty over your job is causing stress, but be persistent over getting what you’re due. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) Problems over joint finances cause some rough emotional moments, so try to keep your emotions out of your financial decisions, hard as it is, especially if you work with a partner or family member. Keep your dreams achievable and although it will take time, you’ll get there. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) If you’ve taken shortcuts over situations recently, it will take a lot of extra effort to get things back on track this week, especially with family members and close friends. You didn’t like a home truth someone gave you and over-reacted, but now it’s time to make amends. Make sure you do! SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) If you’re going to invest time, money

Page 48

or effort in something this week, make sure you know all the pros and cons of the situation you’re getting into. You’re confident about plans for the future, but don’t buy into a partner’s starry-eyed vision of having it all. Stick to reality. SAGITTARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) Commitments and promises fail to materialise, leaving you disappointed and angry, but there’s no point wallowing in negativity. Use your energy and drive to do something productive for you and you alone. Maybe a trip down memory lane would kick-start your enthusiasm again. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Security in all areas has always been your goal, and you’re known to keep your eye on the ball at all times, so when others question your decisions over authority issues, you’ll start to doubt your judgement. Keep communications flowing and don’t let insecurity seep into your actions. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) Make sure your confidence over plans for the future doesn’t come across to others as ego or condescension. Knowledge is power, but don’t let your

imagination work overtime. Two heads are better than one when making long-term decisions, so don’t alienate yourself from the herd. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) If you feel you’re chasing pipedreams that never seem to come to fruition, it may be time to stand still, take a step back and be objective over the reality of achieving your lofty goals. Going in another direction may be what’s called for, so consider all your options and choose wisely. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) If you want to avoid in-house fighting with partners or family this week, you’ll need to be prepared to give a little. It’s all about compromise, so don’t blow things out of proportion. Remember the good times and try to rebuild relationships from that starting point. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) Be assertive over money matters connected to career, especially if you’re doing most of the work and someone else is taking all the credit. You’re starting to feel someone is leading you down the garden path, but don’t let your anger coax you into taking rash action. Think of others. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Mars in your sign gives you the drive and energy to push yourself onwards and upwards this week, but keep goals and expectations realistic. If you get beyond yourself you may be left disappointed. Friends are unpredictable and may not be as supportive as you’d thought.
