Boozy Brits behave! ‘Having a UK passport won’t keep you out of prison, warns British Consulate BRITAIN’S notorious young holiday boozers have been told by the British Consulate to watch their step in Tenerife. Every year, particularly in the summer, hoards of both female and male groups make their way over here looking for a good time - day and night. That’s fine, as long as they behave themselves. But, says Jeremy Browne, Minister of State for Consular Affairs, expect the worst if you fall foul of the law. “The punishments can be very severe, with tougher prison conditions than in the UK,” he warns. “We find that many people are shocked to discover that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) cannot get them out of jail. “We always provide Consular support to British nationals in difficulty overseas. But having a British passport does not make them immune to foreign laws - and it will not get them special treatment in prison.” David Thomas, Consular Regional Director for Spain, also issues a note of caution to those who want to whoop

it up. “We see many young people being arrested for causing trouble outside bars and clubs at night,” he says. “All too often, they think they’ll spend the night in a cell, sleeping off their hangover before being let out in the morning. “But they soon sober up when they realise their British passport does not grant them immunity and that they’re alone in a foreign prison cell, unsure of when they’ll be released and unable to speak to officers because they don’t speak the language.” Tenerife’s Consulate handled 16% fewer arrest cases involving Brits between April 2011 and March 2012 than the previous year. They numbered just 112 throughout the period which, on paper at least, means the Island is a pretty safe haven to live or visit, compared with, say Alicante, where the Consulate recorded FIVE times as many incidents. New figures supplied by the British Embassy reveal that between the above dates, British Consulates in Spain handled 1,909 arrests cases involving British nationals. It was up by 9% on the previous year, and that number included 141 arrests for drugs offences. The figures

are part of a worldwide increase of 6% of the British arrested overseas, with a total of 6,015 cases against 5,700 in the previous year. Drug arrests worldwide increased by 2%, with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) handling 816 cases. Mr Browne added: “It is important that people understand that taking risks abroad can land them on the wrong side of the law. “While we will work hard to try to ensure the safety of British nationals abroad, we cannot interfere in another country’s legal system.” The statistics, released in advance of next month’s full British Behaviour Abroad report, show that Spain and the US continue to attract the highest cases of arrests, with Spain showing a 9% increase on the previous year. Anecdotal evidence from Embassies and Consulates suggests that many incidents are alcohol-fuelled, particularly in popular destinations such as the Canary Islands, mainland Spain and the Balearic Islands, as well as Malta and Cyprus. Consular staff around the world spend 35% of their time handling cases of Britons

who have been arrested or imprisoned. Many have unrealistic expectations of what the FCO can do for them and Brits, particularly youngsters about to embark on summer holidays, are advised to think hard about the consequences of running into trouble with the law. Mr Thomas, adds: “The police on Mallorca and

Ibiza have a zero-tolerance attitude towards alcoholfuelled offences. “It’s particularly sad to see younger people throwing away years of their lives, often as a result of a risky decision made in the heat of the moment, and after a few too many drinks. “Not only can they end up with a criminal record, but the effects on their families can

be devastating.” Barcelona arrests showed a leap of 15% from 2011-12, but that was up only by eight arrests - the lowest in Spain - while the Consulate in Palma, Mallorca, saw the largest increase in arrests last year. Yet Alicante’s 554 arrests continue to give the area the highest total by far. Drug arrests are greatest on Ibiza (46) and in the Malaga area (34).

Fresh underwater eruptions bring new fears to residents

El Hierro rumbling again THINGS are hotting up again in El Hierro, which was at the centre of serious earthquake worries for months last year, and geologists are showing fresh concern. The smallest of the Canary Islands experienced no fewer than 238 underwater earthquakes between 1.6 and 3.8 on the Richter Scale in just 24 hours on Monday, and more than 100 since. The largest, just after 9am on Monday, came in the South West of the Frontera region - scene of many earlier eruptions - at a depth of 19kms. Most of the other tremors were centred to the South East of the area, between depths of 16-31kms. The Canarian Government, in collaboration with the IGN (Instituto Geológico Nacional) and Involcan (Instituto Volcanológico de Canarias), issued a yellow alert - the second on a four-level scale of danger - in the unpopulated regions of El Julan and La Dehesa, to the south and south-west of the island. The National Geographic Institute (IGN) has begun investigating the earthquakes, and experts at the Official College of Geologists, ICOG, have expressed their concern at the increased activity.

José Luis Barrera, VicePresident and volcanologist, said the origin of the quakes was “tectonic”, which means the rock breaks up at an average depth of between 18-20kms. But he also said it was still too early to determine whether this was normal, or the start of more volcanic activity on the island. “In recent days there have been over 350 earthquakes, some of them felt by the population,” he added. “The epicentre of most of the earthquakes is located

in the municipality of La Frontera, although some are in El Pinar.” But unlike the major activities which began last October and saw magma and gas erupt from the sea bed off the southern coast of the island, these latest tremors probably won’t cause eruptions. There were genuine fears of a mass exodus from the island last October. when a “submarine” eruption took place off the town of La Restinga, south of El Hierro, following

hundreds of lesser quakes. A lack of comprehensive scientific information available to the authorities during the eruption led to disproportionate Civil Protection measures. These included 600 evacuations and a moralesapping fishing ban in that area, which had an impact on the island’s economy, based primarily on tourism, while residents were left fearful and distressed. Fears of an eruption had been going since the end of July, when El Hierro

experienced the first of what became more than 10,000 tremors - known collectively as an earthquake “swarm”. Residents were evacuated from some areas at the end of September when volcanic activity increased to more than 150 tremors in 24 hours. The army was put on standby for a mass evacuation. This time, the yellow alert was issued after significant increase of seismic movement and land deformation was detected. It was created rapidly,

increasing to 3cm since activity restarted, in comparison with the whole of the previous eruptive process, which saw a maximum deformation of 5cm). Experts are not expecting an imminent eruption, but they have confirmed there is magma movement, and that the eruption has reactivated. El Hierro Cabildo President Alpidio Armas confirmed the lack of immediate worries for Islanders, saying: “Right now, we know that this process is no danger to the public. It’s low-level and it is in an uninhabited area.” Maria Jose Blanco, IGN representative at PEVOLCA, a committee comprising scientists, authorities, emergency teams and police etc, said: “It’s a completely abnormal seismic and deformation activity that began on Monday with the earthquake of 3.1 on the Richter scale.” Meanwhile, just after 11am here in Tenerife on Monday, an earthquake with a magnitude of 3.0 on the Richter Scale was recorded in the sea between Santa Cruz and Candelaria at a depth of 17km. The Sources of Emergency Co-ordination Centre and Security (CECOES) of the Canary Islands confirmed that they had received several calls from people in Santa Cruz and La Laguna, who had felt the tremors.

Motorworld goes up in flames IN the early hours of last Friday morning the new premises of Motorworld, Costa del Silencio went up in flames. Alarms sounded at 03.07am alerting the fact that something was wrong. Once confirmed the alarm company then sent five fire crews from across the south of Tenerife to get the blaze under control. Together with Guardia Civil and an Ambulance, thankfully no-one was injured in the blaze which took a number of hours to contain, including one car reigniting! The Motorworld warehouse stored 25 cars in total, including one vintage and one classic car, all that remains now is an amalgam of plastic and charred car bodies. The extent of the damage is not

fully known as the site is currently too dangerous to investigate. Forensic officers are currently visiting the scene, but it is thought that the fire began in a 1997 BMW 328, 1997 which Motorworld had recently part-exchanged. The temperatures inside the warehouse were so high that it melted everything inside. But, thanks to the landlord of the property Motorworld is still able to trade on land adjacent to the garage, as a handful of cars were outside the property.

The Aftermath: Motorworld's warehouse is destroyed along with these cars. Left and right: The scene before the blaze.

Teide tops visitor poll IT was just five years ago that UNESCO declared the El Teide National Park as a World Heritage Site, which at 3,781 metres, is one of the richest and most diverse locations in the world. Now, a study by consumer group Eroski, made public this week, has revealed that the park received over 2.7 million visitors last year. Eroski suggests that the UNESCO recognition has been an impetus in placing El Teide on the international travel map, thus having a positive effect in terms of tourism to Tenerife. During 2011 the 2,731,484 visits make ‘Teide’ the most visited in Spain, followed by the Picos de Europa and the Timanfaya, according to the study by the Consumer Eroski reviews. According to the data from this study, nine national parks have received 64% of visitors compared to 2010, while five have lost approximately 36% of their visitors. In the case of natural parks, 56 of them saw a combined 41%-increase in the number of visitors compared to 2010. However, in this same period there has been a slight decline in visits to natural parks of Andalusia, Aragon, Cantabria, Castilla-

La Mancha, Castilla y León, Valencia, Galicia, La Rioja, Madrid and Murcia. Consumer Eroski’s report warns, however, the difficulty of controlling the number of visitors to these open spaces, noting that most of the data provided by managers of the parks relate to visitor centres, “ so that people actually visiting

the parks would be many more.” He also notes that, in some cases, it provides an estimate of overall visitors to natural areas and notes that in 21 natural parks, 15% of the total, have encountered problems such as lack of data or lack of unanimity when the data was received.

This study analyses also the accessibility of these natural areas and concluded that 79.56% have been adapted, making the areas more accessible for families and the disabled. “However, we still need more efforts to achieve 100% accessibility to the national parks that we have,” he says.

The sun is shining on Canaries in Moscow THE Canary Islands received tremendous exposure at last weekend’s Women’s Beach Volleyball Continental Cup in Moscow.

The Canaries were feted as the Official Holiday destination for the event - a sponsorship agreement with Moscow - and were promoted extensively throughout the three-day tournament to determine the European champions, and a qualifier for the London Olympics. Tournament Director Ilya Volodarsky, from the European Volleyball Federation, praised the Canary Islands for their involvement in the Continental Cup and told a packed press conference

that they were “a prestigious tourist destination among the Russian people”. Reporters were given press

kits featuring the Canaries on the cover, and posters were displayed throughout the room. The Russian team qualified for the Olympics by virtue of their Continental Cup victory in Sunday’s final, while Spain, KOd in the quarter-finals, were already through, as were the GB pair, who gained an automatic spot because they are from the host country. The final also featured a cocktail party for guests, including leading Russian travel agents and tour operators, who were left in no doubt about Tenerife’s value as a tourist attraction to their country. And the Spanish pairing of Elsa Baquerizo and Liliana Steiner have taken a real shine to the Island, so much so that they have trained

29 June - 05 July 2012

Nuria González Delgado Hernández and Marcos Alonso, respectively. There will be ten hours of continuous sport throughout El Medano, earning the town the title, ‘Tourism and Sport Capital’ for the day. Good weather, the beautiful setting of El Medano beach, and the broad programme of initiatives planned, will bring together hundreds of people, including residents and visitors in this tourist enclave of Granadilla.

The beach will become a massive area for outdoor recreation, with more than 20 activities, such as baseball, badminton, beach, and bocce ball Canaria, beach basketball, canoeing, windsurfing, aerobics, spinning, volleyball, rugby, skateboarding, gymnastics, cycling, outrigger, surfing and paddle boarding, fishing, diving, armwrestling and wall-climbing, among many others.

This event shows that people need not go out of town for healthy leisure and free-time fun, and that anyone who attends will see the broad representation of sports played in the Municipality. Also of great interest is the cleaning of the bay, in the hands of Club Deportivo Varillaso from 10.30am to 2pm, an exhibition from the 2011 Canarias Kart runner-up from 1pm-2pm, the Coast Sea Fishing Championship on the beach of La Tejita at 7pm and Race Night Out, the first El Medano Night Life Trail of 14 kilometres and 25 kilometres, from 8.30pm. Municipal officials point out that this summer El Medano will also become a reference point for worldwide sports with the conclusion of World Windsurfing (mid July). They appreciate the cooperation of the various clubs, associations and other groups and participants who will contribute to the fair.

The funding was announced jointly by Arona Mayor Jose Alberto Gonzalez Reveron and Sports Councillor Monica Sierra, during their meeting with representatives from all the clubs. The Mayor said: “Although the current economic situation has forced us to make a cut in these grants from previous years, the government’s intention is

to continue to contribute to the maintenance of sports associations in Arona.” As for the cash breakdown, Monica Sierra said: “The amount for basic sport (260,000 euros) has not changed, taking into account the importance of promoting sport. And we are still devoting a substantial 83,000 euros to clubs participating in official categories for older athletes and Arona clubs, who enter teams in football and wrestling competitions.” The Arona Sports Board emphasised that it will continue to issue the grants, to help alleviate the liquidity problems affecting its local sports clubs.

The Irresponsible dog owners to be punished THE Environment department of the Arona Town Council, headed up by Antonio Sosa, is working on developing a new regulation for street cleaning and refuse collection, which includes increased penalties for any breaches of regulations, especially on “those who walk their dogs and fail to pick up the droppings.” Sosa explained, “This measure is taken in response to numerous complaints from citizens of all areas of the municipality, regarding the presence of animal faeces on the streets and gardens”, which occurs, according to the councillor, “Due to the uncivil behaviour of some local residents.” In light of the situation, and after having carried out an awareness campaign on the issue, “The new ruling will include tougher sanctions on dog owners who leave droppings on the streets or who do not have

the necessary means for collecting them “. Penalties for this will be between 750 and 3,000 euros. In addition, the new legislation also contemplates the imposition of sanctions on littering. Finally, Antonio Sosa announced that the legislation also includes, “Follow-up processes on used oil recycling by the hotel and catering sectors, so that we can avoid, as far as possible, having this residue poured into the sewer system or other inappropriate locations. “

Pensioners will now have to pay towards their medicines FOR the first time since the creation of the Spanish National Health System in 1986, pensioners will have to contribute towards the cost of their medicines. Additionally, people in employment must cough up 50% or more for medicines, depending on how much over the minimum wage they earn. With these and other measures outlined by the Spanish Government at the end of April, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy aims to save seven billion euros - which amounts to 10% of the total spent on health in 2011. It is all part of the Government’s enforced austerity measures, and the reforms also include withdrawal of free medical

care for illegal immigrants, and several ways to make the health system more efficient. Spain’s 8.5 million pensioners, who are responsible for 75% of the 11-billion euros spent on drugs, will be hit hard by the cuts. Under the new measures, only the unemployed not receiving benefits, and pensioners on the minimum pension, will not have to pay for their medicines. Pensioners with higher

incomes will pay 10% of the cost, limited to eight, 18 and 60 euros, depending on the size of their income. As for workers, those on a minimum annual income of up to 22 000 euros will continue to pay 40% of the cost. Those earning up to 100 000 euros must pay half, while those with even higher incomes will contribute 60%. The “co-pay” system has also been extended to orthoprostheses (artificial limbs), dietary products and

non-urgent ambulance trips. Beatriz González, professor at the University of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, and an expert in health economics, said: “Co-pay for medicines should be reformed, and this is a first step that improves the previous situation, which was unfair to low-income workers.” Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said after the Cabinet meeting in April, at which the measures were approved, that the cuts were the only way to sustain the welfare state. The Spanish Federation of Associations for the Defence of Public Health (FADSP) sees the new co-pay system as being a tax on disease. Marciano Sánchez Bayle, a paediatrician and FADSP spokesman, said: “It penalises those with more limited resources and more health problems.”

Buzanada Festival is held in honour of Our Lady of Peace THE BUZANADA Fiestas committee, in collaboration with the Municipality of Arona, is preparing for the celebration of the town’s big fiesta, in honour of Our Lady of Peace, which begins tomorrow (Saturday) with a dance to the music of the Atlantic orchestra of La Gomera. On Wednesday, 4th July, at 21.00, the Gala to elect the Children’s and Senior’s Fiesta Queens will take place, with performances by the villagers Isabel Torbellino and Pepe Benavente. The next day, from 9pm, the Gala will be held to elect the Festival Queen, starring Fernando Martin. The festivities will continue on Friday, 6th July, with the celebration of a child’s Festival with performances from local youngsters, and as a prelude to the weekend from 23.00, the town square will host a dance featuring the orchestras Wamampy and Atlantic. On Sunday, 8th July, from 11am, is Children’s Day, with bouncy castles and a foam party, among other surprises. Among the most important religious events is the traditional mass and procession on Monday, 9th July, starting at 8.30pm.

It's snow joke for magic man Nerilli IT’S simply unbelievable, but snow is forecast on every Wednesday in July - or will it be just an illusion? Of course it will be, thanks to renowned magician Sandro Nerilli, who is bringing his incredible show to the Auditorium Infanta Leonor, in Los Cristianos, on Wednesday (4th July) 11th, 18th and 25th, from 8.30pm. His performances will be conducted in Spanish and English, featuring illusions, music and humour to draw the audience into a magical world where things are not what they seem. His two “Fine Magic Girls”, Orianna and Eli, end up suspended in midair, while flying objects abound throughout the theatre - and even the magician

disappears. Nerilli is one of the most accomplished illusionists in the world, performing in major US concert halls, including Las Vegas - and in his native Venezuela - and has been a guest on hundreds of TV and radio shows. Arona Town Hall’s Culture Department is supporting his latest venture, and tickets are 10 euros for adults and five euros for under-18s. Nerilli founded the Venezuelan Society of Illusionism and is currently gearing up for his Los Cristianos appearances, and also the Canarias Magic Festival. That’s an international contest, to be staged on 19th and 20th October this year at Tenerife’s Teatro Guimera, in Santa Cruz and showcasing the finest magicians in the world.

Sick days will not count as holidays, says Justice court

SICK days when workers are on holiday will no longer have to count as holiday time, according to the European Court of Justice. It means that when employees fall ill during a holiday, they are entitled to have those days added back to their annual leave entitlement. The case which set the precedent took place between various Spanish unions and the National Association of Large Distribution Companies (ANGED). Unions fought it out in the Spanish courts, referring in the main to employees working in factories or warehouses, but ANGED objected. They said the only exceptions according to Spanish Convenios Colectivos - legal working conditions agreements covering different sectors

of employment - were where the sick days related to pregnancy, childbirth or breast-feeding. But the ECJ found that this went against EU law, since minimum holiday periods are a basic right of all workers and designed to allow them to relax and shut off completely from work. The court felt this differed considerably from the right to take time off because of illness, and that it would “go against the grain” for the time allowed by law to relax and enjoy themselves to be taken up by sickness. Spain’s Supreme Court ruled in 2009 that sickness prior to holidays being taken and which would interrupt fixed annual leave should be discounted from the latter. But the ECJ verdict was that it should include illness occurring while an employee is already on holiday. However, workers in this situation would have to obtain a sick note from their doctor to justify regaining the “lost” days of holiday.

CajaCanarias offer water-sports spree THE SOCIAL and Cultural arm of CajaCanarias has launched a new edition of its JKS project, (‘Jóvenes K sueñan’), an innovative programme that will benefit a large number of young people, who will be able participate in sports activities such as ecodiving, snorkelling and kayaking. This initiative, taking place from July to September, is aimed at young people aged between 15 and 25, who are clients of CajaCanarias. The activity has a nominal charge of five euros. The kayaking and snorkelling programmes are organised for up to 18 people per session and are a reflection of the growing demand that young people have shown for healthy physical activities and recreation. Taking place close to shore is double kayak, followed throughout by a support boat, lifeguard and monitor. The activity will be combined with snorkelling or diving with mask and snorkel, to appreciate the seabed in several areas of the Canarian coast. The timetable includes various locations and will start in July. The first will be Saturday 9th by the Los Gigantes cliffs, to continue on Thursday 21st at el Puertito, on the coast of Adeje. In August, on Thursday 11th, the journey will be along the coast of Radazul and Saturday 20th at Punta de Teno or Garachico Bay. The last voyage will be on Saturday September 3rd, along the coast of San Andres. The activity includes: round trip transportation, accident insurance, lifeguards, two monitors, life vest, selfdrainable double kayak, paddle and seat. The project, developed by the Social and Cultural EcoOcéanos CajaCanarias serves as a framework for the development of another new program proposed in JKS: eco-diving. The marine environment in the Canary Islands is very rich in biodiversity, particularly

in the area near the coast. However, negative impacts have made the level of degradation enormous. In the first 50 meters is the highest concentration of life and, in turn, the highest level of degradation. It is also where they will practice the diving, an attractive activity for anyone who wants to have direct knowledge of the marine environment and experience entirely new sensations. Diving for beginners will take place in several coastal areas appropriate for sustainable activities. These dives were performed in two reclaimed areas in recent

years as part of the project, at Montaña Amarilla, in Costa del Silencio, and Abades, in Arico The schedule starts July 10th in Abades, to continue on 17th July in Montaña Amarilla, on July 24th in El Porís, August 6th at la Costa del Faro de Rasca, on 20th August again in Montaña Amarilla and concludes on August 27th at Abades. The diving is for a maximum of eight participants per day. You must be able to swim and have practiced snorkelling (scuba goggles, tubes and fins). It is also essential to be in normal physical condition,

(not having diseases that prevent diving, especially to the heart, circulation, respiration or hearing, etc.) and not pregnant. There is no need for special equipment, just a swimsuit and sunscreen. Complete diving equipment will be available and dives will be supervised at all times by instructors. Those interested can find out more and register at www.cajacanarias.org, and share their experiences and photos with other young people through their wall on Facebook, the most popular social network in the Islands.

Thunderbirds creator struck by Alzheimers TV Legend Gerry Anderson has confirmed that he has Alzheimer’s Disease. The creator of Thunderbirds was diagnosed 18 months ago, but he has only decided to go public with the news this week. Anderson spoke about the illness publicly for the first time for an Alzheimer’s Society walk which he plans to take part in next October. Speaking on BBC Radio Berkshire he said: “I don’t think I quite realised at all. It was my wife Mary who began to notice that I would do something quite daft like putting the kettle in the sink and waiting for it to boil. Finally, I was persuaded to go and see the doctor and eventually I was confronted with the traditional test - a piece of paper with drawings on it, taking a pencil and copying them. I thought, ‘Why are they

29 June - 05 July 2012

doing this? A child could do this’. But when I started to copy the drawings, that wasn’t the case. I started to get in a muddle. That’s when I began to realise that there was something wrong.” The 83-year-old, who lives in Henley-on-Thames, said he was no longer able to drive and that “was the bitterest

blow of all”. “That virtually took away my freedom. It meant that I couldn’t go to Pinewood studios where I worked, and this depressed me enormously because my film work was my life. Since I’ve had Alzheimer’s I’ve realised how debilitating it is. It can affect your life in so many ways that

you don’t think about.” Alzheimer’s Society chief executive Jeremy Hughes said: “We’re so grateful to Gerry for supporting Memory Walk on October 13th. By speaking out about his dementia he’s spreading the message much further that it can happen to anyone.”

Las Palmas voted Spain’s worst city LAS PALMAS residents are furious about the Gran Canaria capital coming top of a list of the worst cities in Spain. A study by the Organisation of Consumers and Users (OCU) looked at the thirty biggest cities and rated them on a variety of topics. Tenerife residents cannot laugh too loudly as Santa Cruz was ranked sixth worst. Las Palmas in Gran Canaria is the worst-rated city across the country, followed by Palma in Mallorca, Badalona, Alicante, Seville, Santa Cruz, Malaga, Valencia, Madrid and Murcia making up the top ten. In contrast the best, according to this study, is Pamplona followed by Vitoria, Logroño, Bilbao, Albacete and Zaragoza. Las Palmas scored badly because of its high rate of unemployment in the municipality, the lack of transparency in the administration and the limited range of leisure, culture and sport. It was also given a low score for its urban landscape, the environment, urban management, housing and mobility and transport. Las Palmas scored just

2.95 out of 10. The study also noted that, despite the massive influx of tourists, cities such as Santa Cruz and Palma in Mallorca do very badly when assessing their variety of concerts, theatres, cinemas, cultural events and sporting activities. They also scored poorly for leisure facilities and culture in the city. Santa Cruz however is among the cleanest cities, ahead of places such as Pamplona, and Oviedo. The Canaries scored poorly in the healthcare section. Santa Cruz and Las Palmas were rated the two worst among the 30 Spanish cities. Santa Cruz also has the worst parking facilities. This will come as no surprise to those who have visited the capital! Whilst the survey doesn’t paint a particularly nice picture of the Canaries there were some positives as Santa Cruz deputy mayor Julio Perez said in an official statement: “The current government team will take note of all these complaints and we will listen. We will correct everything in our power, because the economic situation does not depend just on the City Council.

Queen unveils Bomber Command Memorial

There is no way Beck for David at the Olympics DAVID Beckham has been sensationally left out of the Great Britain football team for next month's Olympic Games. The 37-year-old was said to be “stunned” by the news. Team GB boss Stuart Pearce told Beckham in person on Wednesday night. It’s understood that Pearce has selected Ryan Giggs and Craig Bellamy of Wales and England right-back Micah Richards. Beckham is not the only high-profile player to miss out. There were calls for Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard to be selected. The full squad will be named on Monday. Beckham said on yesterday (Thursday): “Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me. So I would have been honoured to have been part of this unique Team GB squad. Naturally, I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me. And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold. As a Londoner, I would have been really proud to have played a small part in bringing the Olympics to my home town as part of Seb Coe’s team, and I can’t wait for the Games to begin and enjoy every moment along with the rest of Great Britain.” The omission has split public opinion. Many Fleet Street journos have applauded his exclusion on footballing grounds, citing his poor recent form and his age. But there are

Page 12

many people who wanted Beckham to not just play but captain the side. Paul Kelso wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “this decision amounts to a major snub to Beckham and a diplomatic disaster for Pearce, whose decision came as surprise to the British Olympic Association.” It’s understood that Beckham was originally in the final squad, but a raft of injuries forced Pearce’s hand. No players who went to Euro 2012 will be included and with Kyle Walker and Chris Smalling injured, Pearce went with experienced right back Richards. Beckham will still be involved in the London Games. He is expected to play some role in the opening ceremony and could still be given an Ambassadorial role. The former England captain played a major role in helping the Games come to London and was part of the official delegation during the bidding process in 2005. Sebastian Coe praised Beckham’s commitment to London 2012, and said he would be offered a role: “Team selections are up to the coaches and managers of each sport. David has been an extraordinary supporter, probably our no1 supporter, of the Games from the very beginning and is keen to continue his enthusiastic support right to the end. He really gets this. He is from East London and knows how important the Games and sport are to young people. He is a great role model and we are lucky to have such an advocate. I will be talking to him about a Games time role.”

VETERANS from around the world paid tribute to their fallen colleagues as the Queen unveiled a memorial to airmen of Bomber Command yesterday (Thursday). A large crowd braved foul weather to watch the Queen pay tribute to the 55,573 airmen who died during World War II. Some 6,000 veterans and families of those involved attended the ceremony in London’s Green Park, as

a Lancaster bomber drop thousands of poppies in an emotional fly-past. Veterans from Australia, New Zealand, Canada and other countries who served alongside the British crew attended the ceremony. "Chief of the Air Staff Sir Stephen Dalton said Bomber Command’s “service and raw courage” had finally been recognised: “Many of those who gave us our freedom, and to whom this memorial is dedicated, cannot join us physically, but their spirit is certainly here. " "They will now know that this country and the Commonwealth have shown them and the remaining veterans that their service and their raw courage

has been recognised. For their bravery and sacrifice which helped to give us our freedom, we will never forget them.” During the service the secretary of the Bomber Command Association, Doug Radcliffe, read an extract from the World War One poem “For the Fallen”. The repetition of the final words, “We will remember them,” by all gathered at the ceremony, was followed by a trumpeter playing the “Last Post” while veterans and current service personnel saluted. Pilot Alan Biffen, now 87, said: “I am so glad that at long last Bomber Command is being remembered, not only for what it achieved

but also for the lives of the young men who never came back. Many of them were boys. I myself added a year to my age at 16 so that I could join the air force.” Almost half of the 125,000 men of Bomber Command died, many killed by night fighters and anti-aircraft fire in raids over occupied Europe. The memorial is built from Portland stone and was designed by Liam O’Connor and sculpted by Philip Jackson. It features a bronze nine-foot-high sculpture of seven aircrew. Jackson said: “I chose the moment when they get off the aircraft and they’ve dumped all their heavy kit on to the ground.”

Crazy weather claims another victim THE RECENT wet weather in the UK claimed another life yesterday (Thursday) as flash floods caused chaos. A man, believed to be in his 60s, in Shropshire died after he was swept away in flood water. His body was found in a stream in Bitterley near Ludlow after torrential rain caused widespread flash flooding across the region. Councillor Martin Taylor Smith, who lives in Ludlow, said the floods were the worst in the town since 2007 when heavy flooding caused widespread damage across the West Midlands A morning storm in Wales quickly intensified as it swept eastwards towards the midlands. Roads were

quickly affected and many were flooded. These events happened just hours after flash floods developed in Northern Ireland. As we went to press, There nearly 50 flood alerts across the Midlands, North East and North West,

and there were seven flood warnings on Midlands waterways. The race meeting at Newcastle was abandoned after four races due to ‘biblical rainfall’. The bad weather forced play to be suspended

at the Irish Open golf championship in Portrush. The tournament is being held in Northern Ireland for the first time in more than 50 years. The threat of lightning forced the players, including Rory McIlroy, off the course. The Olympic torch relay was also affected. Torch bearers on Thursday’s Lincoln to Nottingham leg were transported in vehicles because of lightning. Northern Ireland residents woke to heavy flooding on Thursday morning after string storms the night before. Many roads were impassable and 1,000 homes were left without power for over 12 hours.

Grey breaks sales record FIFTY Shades of Grey has become the fastest-selling paperback in literary history. The erotic tale, which has been dubbed ‘Mummy Porn’, has become the fastest paperback to sell a million copies, and last week it smashed its own one-week sales record.

‘Grey’ is the first book in a trilogy by the author EL James and it hit the landmark one million figure after being on sale for just 11 weeks. It smashed the previous holder by 25 weeks. That was Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’. And the book’s runaway success shows no sign of slowing down. Last week it

29 June - 05 July 2012

destroyed the seven-day sales record for an adult paperback, a mark it had only broken the previous week. Last week it sold twice as many copies as the previous one. ‘Grey’ sold nearly 400,000 copies in a week, sailing past the previous best figure of 205,130. And the sales of the follow up books are also

gathering pace according to the latest figures from Nielsen BookScan, which compiles book-industry data. The second book ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ sold 245,801 while the concluding book ‘Fifty Shades Freed’ sold 212,832. Until this month, the record week sale was ‘The Da Vinci Code’’s 141,156 copies.

Sales have been just as impressive for digital copies, which are seen as the next generation for book-lovers. Last Monday, Amazon confirmed that ‘Fifty’ was the first book to sell more than one million copies for its Kindle electronic book device. The success of Fifty Shades of Grey has taken the industry by surprise. Publishers are now rush-releasing stories with similar themes and sales of erotic fiction have doubled over night. Hollywood is also embracing the phenomenon. EL James has agreed a movie deal with Universal Pictures. Star Trek actor Chris Pine publicly denied his involvement in the film project this week, while movie insiders claim that Angelina Jolie is the favourite for the role of Anastasia Steele. American Psycho writer Bret Ellis has expressed an interest in writing the screenplay.

Prisoner escapes from Pentonville

LONDON Police have launched a massive man hunt for convicted murderer, John Massey, who escaped from Pentonville Prison in Islington, north London at around 6.30pm on Wednesday. The 64-year-old was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of a man at a pub in Hackney, east London back in 1975.

Scotland Yard have advised members of the public not to approach the "potentially dangerous" offender and instead call 999 if they see him. A police spokesman said: "Police are appealing for help in tracing a convicted murderer who has escaped from HMP Pentonville. "He is considered potentially dangerous and should not be approached by the public if he is seen." It has not yet been revealed how Massey escaped from Pentonville, but an investigation is due to be launched by the Prison Service.

Buckley Street gas blast: man arrested Sheffield toddler in death fall from flat SOUTH Yorkshire Police have said that a two-yearold girl has died after falling from the fourth floor of an apartment in Willey Street, Sheffield, on Wednesday afternoon. She was taken to the local Sheffield Children’s Hospital where she died from her injuries shortly after 5pm. A police spokesman said officers were continuing to investigate the “tragic

incident”. According to UK press reports the twoyear-old who fell has been named locally as Rayaheem Banimuslim; it’s understood that she had been playing on a communal fourth floor balcony. A source said the family was from Iraq and the father, Hikmat, was studying for a PhD at Sheffield Hallam University. “They are heartbroken. She was a lovely, beautiful baby.”

Karadzic suffers trial setback A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after the death of twoyear-old Jamie Heaton in Oldham on Tuesday.

BOSNIAN Serb overlord Radovan Karadzic has failed in his bid to have war crime charges dropped. On Thursday judges at The Hague threw out his claim to be cleared of all charges against him. However he has been cleared, on a legal point, of one count out of two of genocide charges on the basis that prosecutors had failed to provide enough evidence. Karadzic is accused of and denies 11 charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity

Page 14

after ordering atrocities during the Bosnian war in the 1990s. He is accused of being responsible for the deaths of more than 7,000 Bosnian Muslim, all men and boys in Srebrenica in 1995. This was a long and sustained campaign of shelling against civilians in Sarajevo, plus the hostage taking of United Nations staff. Judges threw out his appeal saying that the “genocidal intent” of the accused “may be inferred” from all the evidence presented. The United Nations tried for years to track Karadzic down after he fled in 1996. He was eventually captured in 2008 after spending years posing as a doctor of alternative medicine underneath the authorities noses in Belgrade. The trial at The Hague will now continue, with the defence due to begin giving evidence in October.

A MASSIVE cyber bank raid has taken place across the world with, it is thought, over sixty million euros being stolen from financial institutions. According to a report more than 60 firms have suffered from what it has called an “insider level of understanding”. “The fraudsters’ objective in these attacks is to siphon large amounts from high balance accounts, hence the

gas pipes, the Greater Manchester Police launched a “homicide investigation”. On Wednesday, detectives said they have “significant questions” for the family’s neighbour, Andrew Partington, who was seriously injured in the blast. Mr Partington, 27, who is not related to Jamie, was taken to Wythenshawe Hospital with severe burns after the explosion, where police said he was “unconscious and sedated”. Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood, from Greater Manchester Police, said: “We’ve had information to suggest that it might not have been accidental, so we

are treating it as a suspicious death and, therefore, a homicide investigation is being undertaken.” He said reports of a domestic argument on Monday night were being investigated. Police say Mr Partington was alone in the house where the explosion happened. ACC Heywood said: “Obviously, we want to speak to Mr Partington when he wakes up and he’s currently got some colleagues with him from the police.” Police confirmed another adult and five children lived in the house with Mr Partington but were “in another town” when

the explosion happened. Jamie’s mother survived the devastation after she momentarily stepped into the yard to hang out washing to dry. Her husband and two other children were not at home. In a statement, the family said: “Jamie was a happy loving little boy - precious son to Michelle and Kenny and loving little brother to Jodie and Jack. “Jamie’s life was full of laughter. He loved going to pre-school, playing with sand and water and going to the park. He touched the hearts of all who knew him and will be missed by all.”

Cyber crime name chosen for this research - Operation High Roller,” the report said. “If all of the attempted fraud campaigns were successful the total attempted fraud could be as high as 2bn euro (£1.6bn).” An automated malicious software programme was discovered, enabling the processing of thousands of attempted thefts from both

commercial firms and private individuals. The stolen money was then sent to so-called mule accounts in caches of a few hundreds and 100,000 euro (£80,000) at a time. The UK has not been affected; the invasive software seems to have targeted both North and South America mainly. The details of the global fraud were released just a day after

the MI5 boss warned of the new cyber security threat to UK business. McAfee researchers have been able to track the global fraud, which is still continuing, across countries and continents. They have identified 60 different servers, many of them in Russia, and they have identified one alone that has been used to steal 60m euro.

Fraud squad probes Barclays

BARCLAYS Bank chief executive Bob Diamond is facing criminal charges and calls to resign after his company was embroiled in a rate fixing scandal. Barclays has been fined £290m after an investigation into claims that several banks manipulated the Libor rate at which they lend to each other. Prime Minister David Cameron has said that Barclays Bank management has “serious questions to answer” over how it manipulated banking lending rates. He said “Let them answer these questions first. Who was responsible? Who was going to take responsibility? How are they being held accountable?” Yesterday (Thursday) after-

noon the Fraud Squad were called in to investigate the troubled bank and Chancellor George Osborne addressed Parliament. He said: “The FSA report is a shocking indictment of the culture at banks like Barclays in the run-up to the financial crisis. Through 2005, 2006 and early 2007 we see evidence of systematic greed at the expense of financial integrity and stability and they knew what they were doing,” The Chancellor said the government is looking to change that to make sure the taxpayer benefits from the fines and he raised the possibility of criminal charges against guilty bankers. Shares in Barclays crashed. At one point on Thursday they fell as much as 15% and this affected other banks shares as well. RBS was down 10%, Lloyds was down almost 5% and HSBC slid 3.5%.

The rate-rigging scandal is the latest to hit the banking sector. It is alleged that Barclays used underhand tactics to try to rig lending rates between its banks and as a result, profit from its own trades. Barclays allegedly gave false information about the interest rates it had to pay to borrow money so it could paint a better picture of its health to markets. Labour leader Ed Miliband called for a criminal inquiry, sentiments echoed by many in Parliament. The Serious Fraud Office are in talks with the Financial Services Authority (FSA) - raising the prospect of potential criminal charges. Andrew Tyrie, chairman of the Commons treasury committee, said it would summon Mr Diamond to account for what had happened.

Mr Diamond on Wednesday apologised for the bank’s actions and said he and three other executives would waive their bonuses for the current financial year. He took a £2.7m cash bonus last year, despite widespread criticism that his pay failed to reflect the struggling performance of the bank. The FSA also disclosed on Wednesday that more banks could be caught up in the rigging scandal. It is another blow to the beleaguered banking sector as it battles to restore its tarnished image in the wake of the financial crisis, the scandal of mis-sold payment protection insurance (PPI) and the computer problems at RBS which froze millions out of their accounts. At the start of the year Barclays was also ordered to pay £500m in tax it had avoided to the Treasury.

London 2012 official song THE official song for London 2012 has been launched by chart-topping trio Muse’s, whose rock anthem is called Survival; the track will be played throughout sport sessions at Olympic Games venues. Survival is just one of five official songs which have been commissioned by the

29 June - 05 July 2012

Olympics organisers, which will be released in the coming weeks. The others will be from Dizzee Rascal, Chemical Brothers, Delphic and Sir Elton John, who has collaborated with Australian duo Pnau. Matt Bellamy, Muse frontman said: “It’s a huge honour to have the track chosen as such a major part

of the London 2012 Olympic Games. “I wrote it with the Games in mind as it expresses a sense of conviction and determination to win.” The band - who also feature Dominic Howard on drums and bass player Chris Wolstenholme - were among the stars who have carried

the Olympic torch during its lengthy tour of the UK. They carried it through their hometown of Teignmouth in Devon as part of the flame’s 8,000-mile journey to the Games. They are due to release their next album, The 2nd Law, in September. Their Olympic song is available to buy on iTunes.

and we are delighted to offer not only direct flights to London but a well-timed schedule that will allow customers from the region to connect with flights from Heathrow.” He added:“This is a welcome return to Yorkshire for BA. We are excited about flying from this commercially important airport again.” Leeds Bradford Airport chief executive John Parkin said: “This important new service to Heathrow connects Yorkshire with the world.” Willie Walsh, head of BA parent International Airlines Group, said in May: “We plan to launch flights from Heathrow to Leeds Bradford.” Thomson Airways have also announced that it plans to ‘double capacity’ from Leeds Bradford for summer 2013, adding routes to Menorca, Ibiza, Rhodes, Tenerife, Paphos and Dalaman.

More than one in 10 people attend A&E wards with an alcohol-related injury, while 3% of patients attend because of illnesses relating to booze. The authors of a current report, published online in Emergency Medicine Journal, suggest that the numbers equate to nearly two million alcohol-related visits to emergency-care departments in England and Wales every year. Researchers found that one-third of patients, or 640,000, who attended A&E units required admission to hospital. They studied 774 patients

seeking emergency care at Bristol Royal Infirmary over a four-week period and concluded: “Harmful and hazardous alcohol use is a major problem.” Emily Robinson, Alcohol Concern Director of Campaigns, said: “Alcoholrelated hospital admissions remain extremely high. In fact, they have doubled over a decade. “This study provides a worrying insight into the actual level of the burden put on to emergency medical services by those who have been drinking - and those who suffer the results of alcohol-induced violence “While the Government has shown a will to tackle these problems in its new alcohol strategy, it must now make sure that the policies suggested, such as dedicated alcohol liaison nurses in A&E, are backed by sufficient resources to make a real difference.”

Business is on the up! By Christopher Pennington ON that special day last week, when the Camera de Comercio (Chamber of Commerce), the Spanish Government and Cabildo Presidents were rounded up for the low-key visit to Tenerife by Chinese President Hu Jintao, I took the opportunity to speak with the Managing Director of the Camera de Comercio. And Vicente Dorta Antequera spelled out exactly what’s in store for the Canaries, with international interest and investment coming from both East and West. Vicente has led the reformation of the Camera (Chamber), cementing relationships locally with businesses and organisations to cut through the archaic system and red tape. He told me: “Witnessing the disappearance of 14% of the 65,000 registered businesses in Tenerife has led us to change our focus, and the main success of the Camera now is the level of support and education we give to new and small businesses. “We’ve created a ‘one-

Page 16

stop shop’, enabling new businesses and enterprises to enter the market quickly and cost-effectively.” This is opposed to the old system, which could take weeks to register a company. When asked what changes he would like to see in the short term, Vicente said: “It is vital to see a restructuring of the financial system, to create equal opportunity for people wanting to start businesses in the Canaries. “We have many advantages to doing business here, and it is our responsibility to create opportunities for people to assist us with the economic and social diversity of the Islands by creating a ‘hub’, where businesses outside of Tourism can flourish. “By supporting new businesses with better connections to groups, organisations and associations, young enterprises stand a better chance of success. “That is why we have taken the decision to incorporate the Chamber and open up membership to every business owner in the Canaries, free of charge.” Companies and

organisations like Capecan, Proexca and the ZEC have in their hands a real opportunity to capitalise on our stable foundation by increasing the amount of international businesses coming to the Canaries. Vicente encouraged initiatives like this, and he highlighted the main advantages to future

local businesses, increased employment opportunities, development of commercial skills, open access to international markets, Joint Venture opportunities and the internationalisation of Canarian businesses. When asked why international companies should come to the Canaries, Vicente insisted:

“NEVER has there been a better time to trade from the Canaries. He pointed out: *Arguably, we have the most advantageous platform in Europe *Our location is perfect *We enjoy a first-class health and education system *Our climate is envied *Tenerife South Airport has more direct international flight connections with Europe than Madrid Airport. This helps to captivate business owners, allowing them to enjoy an opulent lifestyle and low-cost of living. Vicente added: “If you combine all this with tax incentives such as 7% VAT and corporation tax at just 4%, it is easy to see why the Canaries is attracting SMEs and Corporates from Europe and America.” Capecan Business Centre is living proof of this trend, with more than 60% of its occupants being international businesses. This creates more opportunities for local business by belonging to the same business community, as well as more jobs for local residents of the Canaries. All achievements start with

a vision. So when I asked the Camera Director if he could wave a magic wand and fastforward five years to what life would be like in the Canaries, I wasn’t astonished by the determination and conviction of his answer. “The Canaries WILL be the logistical stronghold for all trade between Europe America and Africa,” he stressed. “Our goal is to put an end to the present high unemployment rates. “Together, we will change the production model, improve education, strengthen our economic structure, build firm foundations for trade in Africa and innovate and create more opportunities in the Canaries like the Factory of Innovation, which will be opened by the end of the year in Adeje. “We have an abundance of reasons why companies should come to the Canaries, and, by working together, we will raise our profile.” If you would like us to show you how to lower your corporation tax to just 4%, or open commercial links with West Africa, please contact Christopher Pennington at christopher.pennington@ canarianweekly.com

It was a time to enjoy meeting old and new friends in a convivial atmosphere, prior to the formal duties and speeches of the evening to usher in a new Club President. Later, Ken Sadler, presiding Master of Ceremonies, introduced outgoing President Phil Glock to perform his final duties by presenting the club annual awards. The “Lion of the Year” award went to Colin Slade for his efforts in organising the club’s “Dream Holiday” project. Phil spoke much of the club’s achievements for the year, and he thanked fellow members for their support, concluding his term as President by handing

over the Chain of Office to incoming President Norman Goodall MBE. Norman, a great club stalwart of many years, has held the office on more than one occasion before. With the inauguration ceremony over, everyone moved into the dining area to “Welcome In” the new President, his Lady, Edna Goodall, and Guest of Honour Maria Leng, before the Gala Dinner service. Following the Grace, the British Consul to the Canary Islands was called upon to give the Loyal Toasts to His Majesty King Carlos of Spain and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In his presidential speech, Norman drew attention to

the fact that “Lions Clubs, by the very nature of their code ‘We Serve’, will always be there when help is needed.” He went on to say: “At this particular time of financial austerity, Tenerife Sur Lions Club is prepared to act as a shield, or beacon of hope, whether it be for an individual, a family or group who need help and support.” Challenging the assembled company he concluded by saying: “Now is the time Lions are needed more than ever in our Community - could you be a Lion?” The Gala Dinner, a beautifully-presented fivecourse meal, was much appreciated, allied to the excellent service of good wines and finishing up

Accion del Sol News

MARION GONZALEZ, who runs Accion del Sol, would like to say a big thank-you to Debbie Gibson, Chantel Kolker and Ana Isabel Rodriguez Perez for all their hard work at the refuge last week. They spent hours photographing all the dogs, which are there for adoption, so the centre can advertise them all for rehoming. The girls also made their own videos, the links for which will be in next week’s news, and on Accion’s Facebook page. It was a long, arduous task for the trio, trying to take clear pictures, because the dogs were so excited to come out of their kennels - and the girls made lots of fuss over the dogs. But they performed an excellent task, and great fun was had by all - especially the dogs! Hopefully, this move will help find new homes for all these gorgeous dogs. A lot of them are larger, older pooches, which people often pass by in favour of the

with coffee and liqueurs. The evening was then complemented by music, dancing and entertainment. Ian Anderson, a regular Lions’ favourite, brought his unique blend of Music for Dining, together with two excellent cabaret acts, featuring Dion’s foot-tapping Rock’n’Roll Show and the fabulous sound of the Tuxedo Knights, which soon had everyone ready to dance the night away. During the cabaret, the Tenerife Sur Lions Club took the opportunity to present an appreciation award to Eric Viana and Denise Bell, of Viana Shows, for their support of the club. A big thanks of appreciation must go to all who worked so hard behind the scenes to make the evening the obvious success it was. In particular, thanks to Beryl Sadler, who designed and arranged the table decorations, seating plan and memento brochure, not forgetting the staff and management of the Hotel Paradise Park. And hats off to all the waiters and kitchen staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble.

TENERIFE Sur Lions Club held its 27th Presidents’ Night Gala Dinner last Saturday at the prestigious Hotel Paradise Park in Los Cristianos.

7/7: One Day In London Monday 2 July, BBC2, 9pm

The day after London won the Olympic bid terrorists attacked the public transport network, killing 52 people and injuring more than 700. Seven years later the eyes of the world are once again focused on the capital. 7/7: One Day in London gathers the testimony of more than 50 people directly affected by the London bombings, exploring the long lasting effects as they reflect on their experiences and how their lives have changed. After the conclusion of the public inquest in 2011, a multitude of previously untold stories emerged of the bravery, difficulties and horror that people experienced on that day in 2005; many of these have been included in this film as well as testimony from people who have never spoken before. This is an ambitious retelling of the story of what happened on that day, with contributions from commuters, emergency service workers, Transport For London staff and families of victims. With enormous compassion for one another, ordinary people tell extraordinary stories of the day when they were thrown together, and their struggle to cope in the wake of the blasts that shook London.

Blackout Monday 2 July, BBC1, 9pm Christopher Eccleston plays Daniel Demoys, a stranger in his own life. He has gone from being an idealistic young man to a disillusioned and corrupt council official. Daniel is a mess. He’s drinking so much he’s having blackouts. He has also been passing council contract details to businessman Henry Pulis. When a row between the pair gets out of hand, an alcohol-fuelled Daniel beats Pulis brutally, leaving him in a coma. Desperate for help, Daniel seeks out his sister Lucy, a lawyer. Lucy is representing Nelson Venner, a young man speaking out against drug gangs. Lucy and Venner are giving a press statement when a car slows and a gun appears from the window. Daniel impulsively throws himself in front of Venner, taking the bullet. When Daniel wakes in hospital, he is unaware his impulsive act is all over the news, and a nurse, Donna, explains he’s being lauded as a hero. Daniel is lucky to have cheated death. It’s a wake-up call. Maybe he has a chance to be a better man. Elsewhere, Henry Pulis lies in intensive care. Daniel is wracked with guilt and desperate to pay for his sins. When political consultant Jerry Durrans visits Daniel to suggest he could be a viable candidate in the city’s first mayoral election, Daniel is sceptical. Yet the seed of an idea has been planted and he has been set on the unlikely path to being elected his city’s first political mayor. But Daniel remains a man with the blackest of secrets, desperate to make a stab at redemption.

W C CHOICE Simon Schama's Shakespeare BBC2, 21:00

Simon Schama argues that it is impossible to understand how Shakespeare came to belong 'to all time' without unde standing just how much he was of his time. Simon explores Shakespeare's attitude to the other great subject of his day - kingship. He looks at the ways in which Shakespeare's most profound tragedies - Richard II, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear - may have been inspired by his own experiences writing for the courts of Elizabeth I and James I. It was as if seeing their frailty, vanity and folly first-hand fired his imagination - inspiring him to explore the great themes of power and ambition, in plays which show kings murdering their way to the throne and going mad. Shakespeare dared to strip away the mask of royalty to reveal the flawed men underneath. Somehow, he got away with it - and revealed profound truths not just about kings but about the rest of us too. Aswell as this an extraordinary cast of actors deliver some of Shakespeare's most moving and profound soliloquies.

The Million Pound Drop Live Channel 4, 21:00 Extraordinary game show in which contestants can win or lose life-changing amounts of money live on TV. Filmed in a highly secure location, contestants are given their prize of a million pounds at the start of the show, but are then faced with eight tough questions that are linked to four trapdoors, each representing an answer, in order to hold on to the cash.

The Circus ITV 1, 9pm This brand new documentary offers a unique insight into life on the road with one of Britain’s oldest family circuses. The Paulo family has been performing in circuses since the 1800s. Having spanned a number of generations, the Paulo family are currently running their own circus, led by Big Kenny with the help of his wife, Kath, and their three sons, Kenny Junior, Leigh and Patrick. Being part of a circus means there are great highs that come from the satisfaction of the crowd, but this doesn’t come without a number of lows. Life on the road can be tough. As well as it being hard to maintain relationships, things most people take for granted such as water, electricity and internet access are in short supply. Big Kenny is worried about low ticket sales, and rising petrol prices are also cause for huge concern. Amanda, who is a distant relative of the Paulo’s and is a trapeze artiste and horse trainer for the circus, worries about the constant abuse she receives from protesters against animals in circuses. Big Kenny’s oldest son, Kenny Junior, and his wife, Teddy, currently both perform in the circus, but they have a four-year-old daughter and, as she approaches school age, they realise the importance of education and consider whether a life on the road is right for them. Meanwhile, ringmaster Leigh, and Big Kenny’s middle son, has fallen in love with a non circus girl who doesn’t want him to travel, so could his future with the circus be coming to an end? As Big Kenny fights to keep the circus together, will 21st century pressures force them off the road?

The Hollow Crown: Richard II BBC2, 9pm The Hollow Crown brings together four filmed adaptations of Shakespeare’s History Plays: Richard II, Henry IV parts 1 & 2 and Henry V. Beginning in the year 1399, this continuous story of monarchy captures 16 years of dynastic and political power play, as Kings, their families and followers are threatened by rebellion and conflict. The story takes us from the Royal Court at Westminster to battlefields in England and France. Each of these rich films is woven with the finest of Shakespeare’s poetry and are filmed using the architecture and landscape of the period. King Richard is called upon to settle a dispute between his cousin Henry Bolingbroke and Thomas Mowbray. Richard calls for a duel, but then halts it just before swords clash. Both men are banished from the realm. Richard visits John of Gaunt, Bolingbroke’s father, who, in the throes of death, reprimands the King.

Episode three sees a regular anomaly alert turns sour when the team realise they’ve accidently returned a raptor through to the wrong time. With the sense of responsibility weighing on their shoulders, Matt returns through the anomaly, asking Abby to find out what Connor’s been up to in his lab. He thinks it’s got something to do with whatever Philip’s been planning. Abby is reluctant to betray Connor’s trust, but shares his concerns about what he’s up to. Realising the raptor is responsible for a number of gruesome murders, he soon manages to track down the creature to a fruit warehouse. He’s about to take it down when a mysterious cloaked figure distracts him, and leads him straight into the path of a raptor attack. The hood falls…Emily is back. Just as they struggle to come to terms with seeing each other again, two dark strangers grab Emily from behind and drag her away, leaving Matt unconscious… Meanwhile, back at the ARC, Abby knows she has to try and reconnect with Connor; they’ve been spending too much time apart. But a nasty encounter with April on her way to his lab makes her wonder if Matt is right – Connor is up to something in his lab that she isn’t meant to know about. Before she was completely against it, but now she’s more convinced than ever that she needs to know the truth. She hatches a plan to infiltrate Connor’s lab… Emily is attempting to escape her captors – who are revealed to be her husband, and a doctor from the Bethlem hospital – her absence and ‘strange’ behaviour have led to her husband to have her sectioned. As it seems all is lost, the raptor returns, attacking their coach, killing the doctor and allowing Emily to escape back to Matt and the warehouse. But not before a passer-by notices the carnage – and blames Emily for it. Mob mentality ensues as Matt and Emily become trapped in the warehouse with a raptor on the loose. With the mob building in numbers outside, Matt and Emily struggle to get control of the raptor, as the danger increases outside. Having found and stunned the raptor, the only option is for Matt and Emily to take it back through the anomaly. Emily takes some persuading; Matt’s time isn’t where she belongs. But as he points out, here, they think she’s a murderer. Just as it looks like she’s made a decision, her husband reappears, brandishing a pistol. Distracting him, they make a quick escape through the anomaly with the raptor. Abby is hiding out in Connor’s lab, downloading his data to a portable hard drive. But little does she know a suspicious April in stalking around, looking for her. Just in time, she manages to finish before April can stumble across her; the secret’s safe.

Bomber Command ITV1, 9pm “The fighters are our salvation but the bombers alone provide the means of victory.” - Winston Churchill ITV1’s new documentary Bomber Command tells the incredible story of some of the only men in the British forces not to receive a campaign medal for their efforts in the Second World War. Just days after Her Majesty The Queen finally unveils a memorial in London’s Green Park to honour the 55,573 men of Bomber Command – half their total number - who lost their lives in the war, this hour-long documentary meets some of the last surviving men who fearlessly led air missions over Adolf Hitler’s Germany. It follows the journey of Bomber Command airmen through the Second World War from their arrival at RAF bases to the controversial bombing of Dresden. Some argue that the courageous men of Bomber Command – responsible for the bombing of Germany’s industrial heartlands and the Dambusters raid - were among the greatest fighters of the war. Yet snubbed by Prime Minister Winston Churchill, they were some of the only men in the entire Armed Forces not to receive a campaign medal. Journalist John Sergeant – a keen student of the Second World War - voices the documentary. Rear gunner Harry Irons, who flew on 60 Bomber Command operations, explains that airmen who flew in the planes knew that their missions were extremely dangerous, but that they knew how important they were to the war effort. However, controversy over the bombing of Dresden in 1945 cast a shadow over them, and the thousands of men who lost their lives were forgotten, he says. “They knew they were going to die. But they still went on and I think to myself, that this memorial is a dedication to some very brave men, very very brave men. “We did do our best and after the war they just just kicked us up the behind. And for years and years and years we were blacklisted, never ever mentioned. “Personally speaking I think Bomber Command won the war - I definitely think so. If it hadn’t been for Bomber Command the war would have gone on much, much longer.” The airmen reminisce about their first days at RAF airfields. Gone were the days of trench warfare in the First World War – this war would be fought in the air, and it was thought that bombing alone could deliver victory. With precision bombing proving impossible with the primitive technology available to the RAF, raids took place at night. Pilots were only told their targets on the day of the raids, said bomb aimer Andy Wiseman. “It was tense, you went for a briefing at about 12 o’clock or 2 o’clock when you were told for the first time what the target was. There was a map of Europe and you sat down and you pretended not to be scared and then the immortal words,‘your target for tonight is…’” For navigator Harry Hughes, who had come from a farm in Dorset, the tension on his base and every time he flew was palpable. “The first thing I noticed, and I’ve thought about it a lot since, was there was a smell of fear on the station. “Of course you were scared because every time you got into your aircraft you thought ‘I wonder if I’ll ever get my feet on the deck again’.” By February 1942. Bomber Command’s future was in doubt. The bombers simply weren’t hitting their targets with enough accuracy. Enter Sir Arthur “Bomber” Harris, who had been an early advocate of the virtues of a bombing campaign and was chosen as the man to lead the fight against Hitler. Pilot Bill Lucas, who took part in Harris’s first major air strike – a 1,000-bomber raid on the city of Cologne - said he was a man who inspired loyalty from his airmen. “Bulldog type of man really - he was a big chap. We admired what he was doing and we would have followed him to the end of the earth.” Rear gunner Bob Gill visits the Yorkshire Air Museum and Allied Air Force Memorial in Elvington to see a reproduction of the heavy bomber he once flew in – the much admired Halifax. “It certainly brings back memories. I haven’t been in one of these for 68 years. Underneath the pilot was the radio operator. And we used to have a standard joke about the pilot’s emergency bag if he had to spend a penny. Take the plug out at the bottom and the wireless operator would not be very pleased.“

Paul Simon's Graceland Under African Skies. Arts series. Paul Simon's Graceland album is one of his greatest achievements - a brilliant fusion of African rhythms and western pop which became a global phenomenon. It also proved hugely controversial, as Simon broke the UN backed cultural boycott of a country still under the grip of apartheid. Joe Berlinger's film captures Simon's return to South Africa 25 years on and contrasts the value of individual artistic expression versus collective political action as instruments of change.

The judging panel will consist of former England captain and Premier League footballer Rio Ferdinand; former English cricketer Freddie Flintoff; singer and Laurence Olivier awardwinning actress Martine McCutcheon; and singer-songwriter and part of successful girl group The Saturdays, Una Healy. Rio Ferdinand said: “I can’t wait to get started on the judging panel of Let’s Get Gold. It’s set to be a fantastic show, capturing the nation’s sporting mood perfectly. I am very excited to be working with Freddie, Martine and Una in the search for new sporting stars. May the best team win!” Freddie Flintoff said: “I’m looking forward to being a judge on Let’s Get Gold. It’ll be a new challenge for me and I can’t wait to get started. I’m sure the judging panel will all be looking for something different. I can’t wait to see what the teams have to show us.” Martine McCutcheon said: “I’m really thrilled to be part of Let’s Get Gold. It’s always wonderful when teams get to showcase their own special skills and abilities. I’ll be looking forward to seeing some unbelievable talent and can’t wait to see something fresh and different.” Una Healy said:“I’m so excited to be part of Let’s Get Gold. I’m looking forward to seeing all the sporting talent that Britain has to offer. It’ll be fun to see how these teams will put an entertainment spin on sports such as Rugby and Golf. I can’t wait to get started!” Host Vernon Kay said: “With the Olympics just around the corner and sport fever hitting the UK this shows provides the stage for local sporting teams to show off their skills and sporting prowess in breath-taking performances.

Motivated by a £100,000 prize fund, and judged by the panel, the show will seek to identify amateur and professional groups displaying the best technique, skill and athleticism, but also those with creativity, style and flair.

In this landmark documentary, Olympian Michael Johnson embarks on a personal genealogical and scientific journey in a bid to understand if he and other worldclass African American and Caribbean athletes are successful as a result of slavery. Michael Johnson is a fourtime Olympic gold medallist and the finest sprint athlete of his generation. In this remarkable authored film he discovers some disturbing truths about the lives of his enslaved ancestors.

Game on, for a fabulous night out at Sebastian’s!

SEBASTIAN’S restaurant, in Las Americas, is always a pleasure to visit, whether it be for tapas, a threecourse meal or just a drink. However you choose to use their services, you will always be welcomed and remembered when you return. And, believe me, you will! On this occasion, we decided to have a relaxed meal and a chance to watch England’s quarter-final match on telly. Sebastian’s don’t always show sports but on certain special occasions, such as Wimbledon finals, important football matches etc, they sometimes organise a special

meal-and-drinks package and it really is a wonderful way to enjoy the action. So with our drinks ordered and fresh-baked rolls and delicious dips to hand, we began the struggle to decide on what food to choose. I say struggle because there are so many choices, from succulent steaks and beautifully-prepared fish, to unique, vegetarian and tapas dishes. Then there is the special menu, which gives you a choice of three starters, three mains and two desserts - all for only 22 euros. With the freshness of the ingredients, and the fabulous presentation of every dish, you can now understand our dilemma. Eventually, we made a decision and our starters

arrived: for my partner, an incredible salad of warm goat’s cheese with wild mushrooms. And with an orange-and-strawberry vinaigrette adding a zesty zing to the fresh leaves, it really was a beautiful entre. Then, for me, a perfectlycooked crepe, stuffed with juicy duck breast and accompanied with fresh salad and a sweet-and-sour dipping sauce, the flavours of all the ingredients coming together to make a unique first dish. As we waited for our main course to arrive, our attentions were drawn to the warm tones of the tenor sax being played by Eudys, a multiinstrumentalist who provides, along with other artistes, a pleasant background for your dining experience six

nights a week. Oh great, Baker Street! Ah, even better, the main courses, and what superb dishes at that. A wonderfully-cooked, flaky salmon steak with smokyflavoured, fresh mussels in a rich lemon, cream and champagne sauce. I am assured it was outstanding, but I didn’t get a chance to try it because it disappeared so readily. Then for me, sweet,

flavoursome lamb, wrapped in a pizza dough crust, smothered in an Italianbased salsa, which blended so well that I could eat it all again right now. And with both dishes accompanied by fresh, sautéed vegetables and creamy, mashed potato, we both felt totally satisfied. “But what about dessert?” I hear you ask. You know me to well and, as a hot, homemade,

“dripping with” sticky-toffee pudding arrived, I knew I hadn’t let you guys down. With cream and icecream providing even more sweetness for my confectioner’s palette, it really finished the night perfectly for me. So a big thank-you for a great night to all the staff Robi, Gabbi, Vanessa, Oscar, Kevin and Sandra - and we’ll see you all very soon.

CARL PATTISON

DEAR CHRISTINE

from Robot, Los Cristianos answers your hair questions

There’s no hiding from it!

AS the headline says, there is no hiding from it. I’m talking, of course, about your salon expectations. I recently overheard a client in the salon telling Lyndsey, my right-hand stylist, that she had never been shown the back of her hair after a cut! How sad is that? It’s sad (and insulting) for the client that she wasn’t looked after on her salon visit, and sad for the stylist, who thought so little of his work. I hear things like this far too often here in Tenerife, and it appears that some stylists don’t seem to respect the fact that without clients, we have no work; without clients, we cannot create or show our skills. In the main, I probably hear

that most clients abandon a salon not from what has happened to their hair but how they were treated there by stylists, who were constantly late for appointments. Also, some were left with a style which wasn’t asked for or were spoken to badly or ignored. I could go on - and you know I can - but it’s the little things that go into the whole visit which makes visiting the salon and not having it done at home all the more pleasurable. I cannot think of anything worse than doing the work I do and not enjoying it. The day I feel like this is the day I will walk away from my profession. We are all still embroiled in the financial crisis, and customers want to feel that they are wanted in the salon - or

Your resident Agony Aunt Email: agony.aunt@canarianweekly.com Dear Christine, I’m a 28-year-old man who breaks down in tears whenever something bad happens. At work they all think I’m very laid back, but last week I was informed I had made a fairly serious mistake and broke down in front of my female friend. Now I feel like a freak and know she must think a man of my age shouldn’t have acted like that. Is something wrong with me, or am I just very immature? I can’t be depressed because there’s nothing to be depressed about, and I made that mistake at work only because my mind was on a girl I’d just seen. I’m worried sick that if I got married and had a family, I’d be breaking down all the time and rubbish at coping. I’d appreciate some advice. Charles

any other workplace for that matter. I’m sick of walking into businesses here and being ignored, or not receiving basic customer-service. After all, civility costs nothing, and it goes a long way to providing clients with the feeling of being looked after and wanted. Yes, we all have our off-days but, all in all, I like to think that clients understand this - as we do them. So the next time you visit your salon, do a little thinking and ask yourself: “Am I getting a consultation before my hair gets touched? Do I get looked after while I’m here? Is what I’ve received what I asked for?” Only you can decide if what your paying for is what you’re getting. If not, ask yourself “Why not?”

Let me reassure you that there’s nothing wrong with you, and nor are you immature. It’s just that you don’t seem to have learned how to deal with difficult emotions. Lots of people are in the same boat as you, and most catch up when they’re ready to. Part of the answer is to see things that make you feel uncomfortable as information, rather than scary, total blocks. I can’t think of many people who wouldn’t be upset if they were told they had made a fairly serious mistake at work. But if people think you’re very laidback, it sounds like your usual tactic when you have strong emotions is to wall them off so you don’t have to deal with them. Then, when something comes along that breaks through that wall, everything just pours out. The moral here is to learn to feel what you feel so you can think

how to respond constructively. Usually the quickest and most effective way of doing this is to have a few sessions of counselling. There are plenty of qualified counsellors here in Tenerife. You might also like to work through books such as The Feeling Good Handbook by Dr David Burns, and Intelligent Emotion by Frances Wilkes. They both offer ways of updating your old patterns of feeling, thinking and behaving. Charles, you’re good enough to learn and to find better ways of dealing with things; you’re good enough to find someone who loves you wholeheartedly, and you’re good enough to be a loving, capable husband and father. I hope you soon start to enjoy being your unique and very special self. Dear Christine, My boyfriend and I are back together for the third time. We’ve been seeing each other on and off for three years, we’re madly in love and each other’s best friend, but we fight like crazy! I’d hate us to break up again, so please can you tell me how we stop fighting. Also, how do I avoid being walked all over or feeling that I am! Mandy I imagine the pair of you play the “blame and guilt trip” game. Well, when you’re being blamed for something, there are actually constructive ways of sticking up for yourself. Instead of coming back with accusations like, “You’re mean and horrible”, which effectively labels the person, you might try saying, “That was a mean thing to say”. Whenever you feel the need to make a criticism, instead of saying,“You’re always leaving me

to go out with your mates”, you can say calmly and assertively, ‘You left me on my own two nights in a row and that made me feel hurt and abandoned”. You might also offer a constructive solution by adding something like, “I would feel a lot better if you would only see your mates once a week. Can you do that?” It’s important that you are specific with your requests, and it’s vital to phrase them positively, rather than just saying what you don’t want. Whenever you’re experiencing an unpleasant emotion, it’s worth speaking up as soon as possible. For example, if your boyfriend is hogging the computer and you want to check your emails, don’t wait and wait, getting more and more rattled until you feel like exploding. Inform him right away that you want to use it, saying something like, “I really want to check my emails. Can we agree that you’ll have finished in five more minutes”? Speaking assertively, yet in a way that is unlikely to cause offence, can work wonders in a relationship. However, he might agree to be finished in five minutes, yet still be on the computer in 10. In which instance, you could calmly repeat,“I want to check my emails,” adding, “It’s 10 minutes since you said you’d be finished in five. I don’t mind closing the programme for you.” No doubt, at this he will immediately finish what he was doing, and leave you to it. You might be interested to know that what finally splits most couples is what they disliked about each other in the first place. Knowing this can save an awful lot of time-wasting and heartbreak! Don’t forget, either, that most on-again-off-again relationships continue to be uncomfortable, even if you live together or get married. It could be that an assertiveness course is in order for you! There are also plenty of good books which can help you be assertive, rather than passive or aggressive. Christine Craggs-Hinton is the author of 20 self-help books including ‘Overcoming Anorexia’, ‘Coping with Gout’ and ‘Natural Treatments for Arthritis’. Her books are available from all good UK bookshops as well as ‘The Paper Shop’, Apolo Centre and ‘Bookswop’, Edificio Cristianos 1, both of which are in Los Cristianos.

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

Fight that waistline flab and ward off illnessses FLABBY waistlines are more likely to indicate that a woman may be facing serious illness than almost anything else. Those extra inches are putting them at higher risk of infertility and diseases, such as like breast, womb, ovarian and liver cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. The dangers of a “muffin top” were highlighted in a survey by Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest healthcare charity, Analysing the “health MoT” data of 54,000 people, it found that most women’s waistlines were in the “high health-risk” category, measuring an average 1.8 inches more than the healthy size of less than 31.5ins. Dr Davina Deniszczyc, the charity’s head of physicians and diagnostics, said: “This isn’t about women fitting into their skinny jeans; rather, it’s an important indicator

of overall health and wellbeing.” By coincidence, scientists have revealed that a simple jab can cut 3.5ins from the waistlines of overweight, middle-aged men – and, presumably, it will apply to women as well. Volunteers in a study lost, on average, 2st 8lbs after they were given injections of testosterone. The research was based on 255 men from their 40s to their 80s, weighing on average 16st 12lbs. Those given a jab of the male hormone testosterone undecanoate showed permanent weight loss. By the end of the five-year study, the men’s average weight had fallen to 14st 4lbs and their waist had shrunk by an average of 3.5ins. Farid Saad, who presented the results to The Endocrine Society in Texas, said: “There is a vicious circle in obesity and testosterone. Obesity is associated with reduced testosterone.”

Hair today - and more tomorrow! FORGET Wayne Rooney’s magnificent new £35,000 thatch, signs of baldness in young men does not necessarily mean their hair is about to depart for good.

It may have just “gone to sleep”, say experts, who believe they have discovered a way of “awaking” the hair follicles to help restore natural growth. In some cases, thinning on top is caused when follicles on the scalp become trapped in a resting state. Hair growth becomes dormant and strands begin to fall out. Millions of men, including the famous - such as Prince William, comedian Harry Hill and Hollywood star Bruce Willis - have experienced severe hair thinning at a relatively early age. Now, though, experts at High Street beauty firm

L’Oreal are developing a simple treatment for the scalp in the form of a shampoo or cream to help encourage hair growth. They have found that hair strands tend to grow continually for about four years before follicles switch to their dormant state and the strands fall out. During this period, stem cells in the skin normally restart the process needed to grow new hair. They are in a latency period, and, if this can be reduced, a person will have more hair. But it’s not all good news

because for those suffering complete baldness, the process can stall, which means no new growth. L’Oreal’s team have found that in balding men, stem cells responsible for making new hair have often been starved of oxygen and, thus, work less efficiently. But the researchers claim to have discovered molecules which counter the effects of lack of oxygen and actually create new growth. Bruno Bernard, L’Oreal head of hair biology, said: “Hair follicles exist in two stable states - either active

or dormant. From time to time, they will jump from one state to another. “Some of the follicles are just resting in the dormant state, awaiting the right signal. They are in a latency period. If you can reduce this latency period, you will have more hair. Around 40% of men have noticeable hair loss by the time they are 35. The figure doubles by the age of 80. Some use wigs or untidy comb-overs to disguise baldness. Others try hair transplants - a route taken by scores of celebrities, like former Aussie Test cricketer Shane Warne and Manchester United’s Rooney. But transplants are both painful and expensive. They usually cost £3,500-£10,500, although England striker Rooney, hardly head and shoulders above his teammates in Sunday’s European Championship flop, really pushed the boat out with his £35,000 job. His feeling is: “I was going bald at 25. Why not?”

Hospitals’ shadow plan to put an end to the ‘Killing Season’ PATIENTS have been put at risk when junior doctors in England start work, so the young medics will now have to shadow their senior colleagues. It is part of a scheme designed to counter a 6% spike in death rates each August as the newcomers begin their jobs. Sir Bruce Keogh, NHS medical director, outlined measures to end the socalled “Killing Season” in the health service. He said all first-year doctors would spend a minimum of four days in a mandatory shadowing role before

29 June - 05 July 2012

taking up their positions this year. It is hoped the initiative will halve the number of errors made in the early stages of their careers. Under the current system, people admitted to English hospitals in an emergency on the first Wednesday in August have, on average, a 6% higher mortality rate than those admitted on the previous Wednesday. The figures, supported by Dr Foster Intelligence - a body which tracks death rates - have led to this period being dubbed the “Killing Season”. And the day newlyqualified medical graduates start their jobs has become known as “Black Wednesday”. Sir Bruce said:“There is some

evidence of increased risk to patients as new doctors take their first steps. So, learning from pilot schemes across the country, we’ve agreed that all new first-year doctors should undertake a period of shadowing at the end of July, starting this year.” Trials in Bristol showed mistakes made by new doctors in their first four months were reduced by more than 50% after a week of shadowing and targeted teaching. The Department of Health said: “This will help them to become familiar with their new working environment. Evidence from the pilots suggests that shadowing can reduce the number of serious, adverse events.” A voluntary programme

is already in place, offering junior doctors the option to shadow experienced medics.

The bed that makes itself! HERE’S a welcome device for bored or idle housewives - a bed that makes itself in under a minute, with no human intervention.

At least, that is what inventor Ascencio Zubeldia claims about his creation, known as the Ohea - Basque language for the word “bed” - which needs just the flick of a switch to set the system off. It then lifts the pillows for a couple of seconds as two arms appear on either side,

Page 42

pulling the quilt towards the headboard and stretching out the sheets. The bottom sheet is stuck down to the mattress with Velcro, and the pillows are held by cords to prevent them moving any more than necessary. It has taken 56-year-old Ascencio, from a village in the Basque Country, about 12 years to perfect his design. He is a strawberry-farmer by trade, but he believes his fortunes lie elsewhere. The bed could be sold for as little as 1,550 euros, which would cover his costs. Future mass production, though, would trim the cost by half.

Ascencio has set up a website and has already been overwhelmed by the interest shown so far. But his main aim is to tempt a chain store to take over its distribution and spread the word nationally. The Ohea does need special bed-linen, which Ascencio has also created, and he maintains he has other inventions in the pipeline relating to “intelligent” household appliances. But he cannot reveal these until he has patented them. One day, perhaps, his inventions could do away with household chores altogether.

It’s official! We’ve moved

OUR new offices are in Parque Margarita, next to the old Travel Shop. Although now we’re there, I realise that we could also have said that we are next to the Italian Restaurant Rimini, (amazing salads and proper pizzas). Or that fabulous deli “Eat Italy” (croissants and lasagna particularly recommended), or the Bar Margarita (fabulous Mojitos, hilarious staff, and great entertainment in the evenings). Now, for those of you who know us, or read this column, you are probably thinking: “She’s lost the plot again they moved months ago.” And you’d be right. But we’ve just received a certificate to say that our business is “compatible” with the premises, and we can now apply for an opening licence! Mind you, if it has taken that long to get a certificate to say we can apply for an opening licence, imagine how long the opening licence itself will take! For those of you who are computer literate, go to www. youtube.com and search for “video notodofilmfest 036”. It’s a very funny but true, short clip about Spanish bureaucracy. Anyone who has been here more than 10 years will probably recognise the office! Anyway, we now feel we can say with some authority that we are going to stay here in Parque Margarita, and what a good move it has been for us! Although the premises are much smaller, we still work from catalogues, have a few display pieces, and lots of fabrics to choose from. We’ve also changed our hours,

and we are now open to the public from 9am to 1pm, or by appointment later in the day. Often we are still there in the afternoons but, generally, that is our time for going out to visit clients, measure for curtains and visit suppliers. As you can see from our food-related comments in the first paragraph, Gilly and I have made a real effort to fit into the local community and support local businesses. And it has not been a hardship, I have to say! Also, on the positive side, we are closer to our many clients in Royal Palm, Port Royale, Mirador, Dinastia, etc. And for those coming from further afield, there is parking right outside the door. We’ve been very busy in the last few weeks, and

not just with revamps and refurbishments. It really does seem that property sales are starting to move again, and we have several projects on the go where people are just waiting for the official signing to go ahead with their furnishings. I have also seen evidence that some of the abandoned building sites are also starting work again, so maybe things are starting to move in the right direction. So, whether you need a cushion or pair of curtains, or if you want to refurbish your apartment or furnish your new villa, call in to see us in Parque Margarita in the morning, or give us a call. We will meet you in the afternoon at your property without obligation!

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

Tough plants THE Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has just announced the introduction of a new, more comprehensive rating for advising gardeners of a plant’s hardiness. A hardiness zone is a geographically defined area in which a specific category of plant life is capable of growing, as defined by climatic conditions, including its ability to withstand the minimum temperatures of the zone. The RHS has been working on the new rating for the past two years and the charity has consulted with garden owners, plant breeders and the horticultural industry

throughout the UK. To date the RHS has rated a plant’s hardiness on a simple four-step scale. The system was developed in the 1960s and was adapted from a system devised for rhododendrons. “The original ratings have served us well,” says Jim Gardiner, RHS Director of Horticulture. “But we have felt for some time that it doesn’t provide enough detail on degrees of hardiness. Today’s gardeners are much more aware of changes in the climate and are looking for more information. This new system should satisfy this need.” Since the 1940s the USA has used a zone system for hardiness of ornamental plants, based on annual average extreme minimum

temperatures. The latest version published last year divides the North American continent into 22 zones from the coldest (1a) to the warmest (11b). Plants are then rated for the coldest zone in which they survive. This approach has been generally followed by the nursery trade in the USA and increasingly in Europe and the UK. “The US system really does not provide a reliable guide to plant performance in maritime areas such as the UK where temperatures are likely to fluctuate during the winter,” says Jim. “We are also more prone to early and late frosts.” The previous RHS system composed four basic ratings, H1 to H4: H1 was for plants that have to be grown in greenhouse conditions

and H4 was given to plants that can be grown outdoors in all parts of the UK. The new ratings (H1 to H7), are linked to winter minimum temperatures and a definition describing the performance of plants is outlined for each rating. The new ratings more clearly define what plants can tolerate. The launch of the new hardiness ratings is being timed to coincide with the current review of the RHS Award of Garden Merit list, currently 7,400 plants. The new and revised RHS AGMs will be published with the new hardiness ratings in early 2013. This additional information and detail will ensure that UK gardeners can make an informed choice on the best plants for their gardens.

This week we focus on Pinks or Dianthus as they are known, a very common site in garden centres.

In the pink

The Dianthus family covers over 300 species of flower including, annuals, biennials and perennials, they are

commonly known as Carnations, Pinks or Sweet Williams. Dianthus grows and blooms best in cooler climates, but

29 June - 05 July 2012

can be grown here as long as they’re not in full sun. They should be planted in fertile, fast draining, and slightly alkaline (pH 6.75) soil.

Dianthus plants require good air circulation around the stems at all times. Avoid overwatering Dianthus because it may tend to turn their foliage yellow. Now when I’ve tried to plant them in the past I’ve not been successful, after a post mortem it was down to the type of soil, it definitely needs to be alkaline. If your soil is currently not then adding supplements can help. Unlike most other plants, Dianthus plants should not be mulched. Dead heading the blooms helps create new ones. Now is a great time to take cuttings, Dianthus are easily propagated by digging and dividing established clumps. Dividing your Dianthus plant has the additional benefit of rejuvenating older, non productive clumps. Dig up an entire Dianthus clump and either pull it apart using your hands to separate the plant segments. Replant each new division as you would a new perennial or annual, and water it in very well.

These chattering classes are still growing strongly! PRINCE CHARLES must have rued the day he told a TV interviewer in 1986 that he spoke to his plants - and they responded to his voice. He was mocked the land over, and has never been allowed to forget it. Today, though, scientists are backing his claim. They have discovered that not only do plants respond to sound, but also communicate with each other in a constant chatter. Bristol University researchers used powerful loudspeakers to listen to corn saplings, and heard clicking sounds coming from their roots. When they suspended the saplings’ roots in water and played a continuous noise at a similar frequency to the clicks, the plants grew towards it. Plants are known to lean towards light as they are growing, and an earlier study this year at Exeter University found that cabbages emitted a volatile gas to warn others of the dangers of caterpillars, or even garden shears. The researchers believe this is the first genuine evidence that plants have their own language of noises, inaudible to human ears. They suspect sound and vibration may play an important role in their life. Daniel Robert, a biology

professor at Bristol University, said: “These noisy little clicks have the potential to constitute a channel of communication between the roots.” Monica Gagliano, lead author of the study, from the University of Western Australia, believes it makes sense for plants to produce and respond to sound vibrations. Dr Gagliano said: “It gives them information about the environment around them, and the research opens up a new debate on the perception and action of people towards plants.” Sounding as nutty as Prince Charles did all those years ago, he added: “The plants should, perhaps, be treated as living beings in their own right.” The research also involved placing sweet fennel, which releases chemicals that hamper the growth of other plants, near chilli seeds. When the chemicals were allowed to reach the seeds, their growth was hampered, as expected. But when the chemicals were prevented from reaching them, they grew faster than expected. The scientists believe they were still able to sense the presence of the fennel, probably by detecting a noise or vibration, and grew faster to protect themselves. The study has been published in the journal Trends in Plant Science.

Summer in Tenerife TENERIFE Tourism, Viajes El Corte Inglés and 20 hotels and establishments in the North and South of the island have developed a summer promotion campaign to encourage visitors from the Peninsula to the Island.

Disney to attract Scottish visitors? THE Scottish tourist board is hoping Disney’s latest animated film, Brave, will boost the number of visitors to the highlands. Brave tells the story of the warrior princess, Merida, who’s an archer living in the Highlands, set in the 10th Century. The plot of the American 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure follows Merida defying an age-old custom, causing chaos in her kingdom. After consulting

a witch for help, her family becomes cursed and Merida is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late. But will a Disney fantasy really attract more visitors to the real Scotland? Renowned for its stunning landscapes, whisky, haggis, kilts and bagpipes, normally it attracts some 60 million people each year and the tourist authorities are hoping Disney could help boost the numbers further.

The economic Vice President and Councillor of tourism of the Cabildo, Carlos Alonso, stresses the importance of “these actions, aimed at capturing greater number of domestic travellers in the months of June to September, in a market that is second in importance to the island and in which we have influence to maintain and increase the numbers of tourists received”. He added: “what manifests this campaign also is the need to launch joint initiatives, not only with operators who work with the island but involving directly our accommodation providers, at a moment in which the collaboration and participation of the sector is essential." The campaign is developed

through advertisements in some print media for greater circulation and dissemination as well as Spanish radio. It will be accompanied by actions in the travel agencies and commercial centers of El Corte Inglés. The promotion takes place

throughout the month of June and July and complete with presentations of the attractions of the island as a tourist destination in Bilbao, Sevilla and La Coruña, with the assistance of a 100 travel agents. In 2011 the island received

the arrival of 1,300,000 national tourists, 25 percent of the 5.160.000 travellers who arrived in Tenerife last year. The Spaniards are our second market in importance, only surpassed by the British (with 1.660.000 visitors, and a share of 32 per cent).

Travel Apps FINDING somewhere to go on holiday and something to do whilst you’re there has never been easier with the latest technology in smart phones. Of the latest new mobile apps they use a smart phone’s geolocation software to plot a person’s whereabouts on a map and reveal activities and attractions nearby. While some travellers like to use a printed map and a list of attractions to plan their days, others prefer to be spontaneous from time to time. If you were looking to take a pit stop during a day of sightseeing, these impromptuactivity apps – Tripomatic, Triposo, Now and Schemer – will advise you on the most praised cafes, the most visited museums and the most buzzed about public events within a short distance from wherever you are standing at that time. Foursquare, which is a free smart phone app that tells friends where you are frequenting, launched three years ago, more than 20 million people have used Foursquare to check in to

Page 44

millions of restaurants, stores and other venues, providing a giant set of data on the most popular places in destinations worldwide. At the start of this year Foursquare updated its app and website to include an Explore feature, which lists the food, nightlife, shopping and art venues near your location that have been praised by other Foursquare users. Foursquare has the most impressive database of opinions about local attractions and activities, but some new rival apps are hot on its tail, presenting similar information in even more clever ways. Schemer is Google’s location-based activity recommendation app. Tell Schemer the neighbourhood you are in, and it’ll suggest activities worth doing there. In mid-May, the company launched an iPhone app, after releasing its Android version in April. Schemer tailors its recommendations to the time and the weather, so if it’s a rainy afternoon the app will recommend a museum visit instead of a long hike. Last week, Tripomatic launched an iPhone app that

lets you shake your phone to see interesting places displayed on a map. The Tripomatic app can sync up with a web-based itineraryplanning service, available for free at tripomatic.com, letting you pick the attractions you want to ahead of time and create a schedule for seeing them, the itinerary can also be accessed on the go. The app works with 400 destinations worldwide, with an emphasis on Europe. Triposo suggests ad hoc day trip ideas based on where you are located. The app uses an algorithm to rank the most important attractions depending on factors such as how frequently cited they are online. The app also sorts attractions according to the time of day, favouring coffee shops in the morning and bars in the evening. In another nice touch, the app works offline after you’ve made an initial download of information for your specific locale, which cuts down on international roaming charges. The app works for hundreds of destinations but is strongest in major European cities.

New Outlander is paving way for next year’s hybrid version THE new Mitsubishi Outlander is the third version of this medium-sized SUV, and it signals something of a fresh start for the Japanese company. For starters, with the styling of the car comes the first example of the company’s new design language. Expect the wraparound headlamps and slim grille with chrome-effect strips to replace the edgy, angular styling on Mitsubishi’s other models progressively. More importantly, the Outlander represents a big step forward for Mitsubishi in terms of efficiency. Come next year, there’ll be a plugin hybrid version which, Mitsubishi claim, will emit just 50g/km of CO2 – and that pretty impressive. But for now, though, the new Outlander will be available with a diesel engine and four-wheel drive only. Yet even in this form, there are some marked improvements over the previous model. Better aerodynamics, a more efficient engine and significantly reduced weight (up to 100kg depending on model) help to reduce CO2 emissions from 164g/ km to 146g/km, while fuel economy has improved from 44.8mpg to 50.4mpg against the current car. And all this with the addition of more standard luxury and safety features, which should make the Outlander a more palatable proposition for many SUV buyers. The diesel engine has 148bhp and 280lb ft of pull, and even though it’s not going to set the road on fire when you pile the revs on, it’s keen enough in the lowand-mid-range to keep life easy. The manual gearshift detracts slightly from the Outlander’s mechanical refinement, but the automatic gearbox

29 June - 05 July 2012

(available on mid-spec models and standard on high-spec models) changes ratios pretty smoothly. Most SUVs are used as family cars, and the Outlander has MPV-rivalling space and practicality. Those in the front get bags of room, and the middle three seats also have generous head- and legroom. Two more seats pop up from the boot floor, and although headroom is tight for adults, they’ll have decent legroom. All the rear seats fold down completely flat when you need to maximise luggage space, offering an impressive 1022-litre capacity. You also get 591 litres in five-seat mode, and even with all seven seats in place, there’s enough room for a few bags. The other notable thing about the Outlander’s cabin is the improved quality over the previous car. Where the interior surfaces were once hard and functional, many of them are now cushioned and pleasant to the touch. The piano-black accents and metallic inserts also help lift things, and the interior design looks smart and fresh. The Outlander doesn’t quite match the best SUVs on outright class, but it’s pretty good overall, and better than many of its closest rivals. Finding a comfortable driving position should be easy, too, because the seat has height adjustment and there’s a good range of rakeand-reach steering wheel adjustment. Most of the dashboard controls are well laid out, but some of the minor buttons are tucked away out of sight, and the touchscreen sat-nav system has complex menus and small, hard-to-hit icons. The Outlander should also have generous amounts of kit, although Mitsubishi haven’t yet finalised the precise specifications. Entry-level cars are expected to come with

goodies such as airconditioning, alloy wheels, cruise control, four powered windows, remote locking, seven airbags and stability

control, while secondrung cars will probably add leather and dual-zone climate control. The range-topper will have

all the bells and whistles, including sat-nav, a parking camera and a premium audio system, along with advanced safety systems,

including lane departure warning, radar cruise control and a collision-mitigation system (which applies the brakes automatically if it senses an impending crash). Overall, this Outlander won’t win any prizes for its dynamics, but it’s decent enough to drive and the well-presented interior, with all its space and versatility, make the car a tempting choice for those with big families. Mitsubishi have indicted that the entry-level model should cost around £23,700 (29,400 euros). That’s about the same as the cheapest seven-seat, Hyundai Santa Fe, but it’s more economical!

Fancy a flash car going cheapish? IT’S an array of supercars which would not look out of place in front of a Premier League footballer’s mansion. But these stylish motors, worth more than £2million, are not showcased for all to see. They are being kept in a nondescript storage facility in Milton Keynes and are symptomatic of the straitened times we live in. That’s because they have been pawned for cash. “People aren’t even both-

ering to go to banks any more as they don’t believe they will be lent any money," said Paul Aitken, chief executive of Borro.com He added that the rise in high-value cars being pawned was partly down to the financial constraints being felt, even among the wealthy. As well as cars, the company also hold fine art, jewellery and antiques. “These sort of times give way for alternative means of lending,” said Mr Aitken.

“A lot of our customers are small business owners or self-employed. And 60% of the time, they do this to get some liquidity for an opportunity. “The other 40% of the time, it is people paying for school fees or a tax bill. Often, the people who have these high-performance cars will have another, so they use one as security for a loan. “Over the last three years, we have lent around £6m

against them. Among the current supply of cars in storage are some of the pricier models on the market, as well as those you wouldn’t find in any old showroom. If the Maserati is not impressive enough, Borro also hold a Porsche Cayenne, a Ferrari F430, an Audi R8 and a Ferrari 360. Oh, and if you fancy a Bentley Continental GTC or a Rolls-Royce Ghost, the company can still oblige!

London hit maximums during a 6-2 win at Target Army. The home team’s Mark recorded his first 180 in the match. Grizzly and Wayne swapped 180s during a 7-1 triumph for Bar 180 A at The Pub, and Cozy Wanderers did for Team Valle, 6-2. Elsewhere, a closelyfought Abrigos derby ended

with a Phoenix Bar success over La Central. Palms Sports Bar A are yet to drop any points, and they are going to take some stopping. Their latest win, over Rood, puts them two points clear at the top of Division 1. Target Titans will want to have a say in the matter, though, and now look

Such a disaster! CD Tenerife 1 Ponferradina 2

LET’S make one thing clear from the very start. Tenerife didn’t deserve to go up. Over two legs, Ponferradina were the better side and they were good value for the win that takes them into Segunda Division. They battered Tenerife in the first leg and led the hosts into a well-planned trap in Sunday’s return. Trailing 1-0 after the away match, Tenerife knew what they had to do. And what they couldn’t let the visitors do. The fans believed, and 18,714 packed into a groaning, sweltering Heliodoro more in expectation than hope. Recent performances had given them false belief, and this would, ultimately, work against the side. It was universally agreed that Tenerife would fly out the traps and hunt down Ponferradina. They would take the game to the visitors and, like Badalona and Linense, they would get the early goal. But Ponferradina hadn’t read the script. Cheered on by their own fans, around 600 I would say, they went in search of the holy grail - the away goal. They knew that if they had that, then Tenerife would need three goals at least. They started confidently and controlled the early exchanges. Sicilia and Tarantino looked nervy at the back. This wasn't helped by an early booking for Sicilia as the ref started becoming the centre of atten-

tion. Vicente Gil Coscolla hails from Valencia, and if he has any sense he will stay there. I can honestly say I have never seen such an abysmal performance from a ref. His linemen were just as bad, and on more than one occasion I went “hmmmm”. Let’s leave it at that. While he was blowing for a foul after every Tenerife challenge, and brandishing more cards than Hallmark, Ponferradina took it all in their stride. They had a game plan and it worked beautifully. They rolled around on the grass and found every trailing leg. In short, they took the crowd out of the game. The fans were so focused on the ref, as were the players, that they let things slip. Time and again, Ponferra-

dina slipped the offside trap, or found themselves with an extra man. Tenerife-born Acoran was a constant menace, while striker Yuri showed why he is being linked with a move to La Liga. The Brazilian was excellent and has improved, hand over fist, since I saw him play for Las Palmas a few years back. He is also a million times better than his brother, Igor, who had a hopeless spell for Tenerife last season, when he failed to score in 10 matches. Ponferradina should have scored before the break and it was a relief to see the match all-square at half time. Tenerife had created just one half-decent penalty shout (obviously turned down), a move which saw Perona shoot tamely when through on goal and a freak effort from Chechu. His cross bent out of play ignored by the linesman - and bounced off the side of the bar on its return to the action area. Tenerife needed a massive second half. They never got it. Two minutes after the restart, the roof caved in. Ponferradina had worked a nice move on the edge of the Tenerife box. Acoran sniffed an opening and, as the ball was worked to him, Kitoko tracked back and seemed to get the ball away. Acoran fell to the ground and,

when Coscolla blew his whistle and went for his cards, the whole stadium though he was giving a free-kick to Tenerife and booking Acoran. He didn’t. He waited for Kitoko to turn towards him and showed the red card before pointing to the penalty spot. Television replays were inconclusive, but it was a harsh decision, whichever way you cut the cake. Penalty? Maybe. Red card? Never in a month of Sundays. The double-disaster became a triple-whammy once Yuri had fired home his second penalty of the tie after a near five-minute delay. While he argued with the ref, I swear I thought Kitoko was going to lamp him. A goal down, a man down, and the whole world knew promotion had flown out of the window. Ten minutes later, it was all over as Acoran’s sweet finish from the edge of the box capped a fine move and ended the contest. The remaining 30 minutes was the football equivalent of the last hour of a school year. Nobody wanted to be there, nobody cared - and the clock seemed to be ticking backwards. At the eventual death, Kiko Raton scored to ironic cheers. The full-time whistle brought a crowd invasion and the lifting on to shoulders of Perona and Llorente as the fans chanted “STAY, STAY, STAY”. Later on, so-called “fans” threw missiles at the wellbehaved Ponferradina supporters, resulting in the hospitalisation of their President’s 16-year-old daughter. It was a sickening end to a troubled season. Canarian Weekly ratings CD Tenerife: Aragoneses 6, Sergio Rodríguez 5 (Luismi Loro 52min 5), Pablo Sicilia 6, Tarantino 6, Raúl Llorente 6, Chechu 6, Kitoko 4, Víctor Bravo 5 (Alvaro Zazo 66min. 4), Kike Lopez 5, Perona 5, Aridane 7 (Kiko Raton 54min 5) Ponferradina: Orlando Quintana 6, Alan 7, Samuel 6, Carlos Ruiz 7, Rodriguez 7, Didac 7, Isaias 8, Jonathan 6 (Mateo 74min), Acoran 8 (Javi Navarro 80min), Yuri 8 (Fofo 73min 6), Mayor 6.

So now what for CD Tenerife? THE new season in the third tier of Spanish football starts on 19th August and the fixtures will be out on 10th July. The season will probably start with a derby match against CD Marino.

What a comedown. Two years ago it was the Nou Camp and Barca, and now it’s the Las Americas football stadium. Sporting director Pedro Cordero was fired within hours of the Ponferradina defeat, and there is no word on the fate of manager Quique Medina. He did a decent job while in charge of the side, but he still didn’t get us promoted. He started well, found a formation, but still made some strange decisions. It’s hard to see how he is the right man for the job. But money will certainly talk. He would be cheap to retain and he does know the young players inside out. There has already been a clamour to give youth a chance. This season, the board went for grizzled veterans and it would be a massive gamble to go the other way. While Alan Hansen's views are taken as a joke these days, he did have a point. “You'll win nothing with kids” certainly applies to promotion. Real Madrid Castilla aside, the other teams are well-seasoned. The biggest concern will be the future of club captain Pablo Sicilia. He agreed in principle a new contract with Tenerife before the start of the play-offs. But this was on the understanding that they would be promoted. Las Palmas have offered him a three-year deal, and it is understood that two oth-

er sides, one believed to be La Liga’s Deportivo La Coruna - managed by former Tenerife boss Jose Luis Oltra - are also interested. So, with Pablo being a free agent on Sunday and 31 in September, it is unlikely he will stay at this level. Top-scorer Perona is also out of contract and has options. He told the press this week: “I came here to get promoted. That is still what I want to do. But it’s really up to the club. I know the financial situation, but they have to come to me.” We know what he is saying. A plethora of second division sides want him, but he would stay if the money is right. Tenerife do have the option to pick up star left-back Raul Llorente for another season, and a new manager should see Luismi Loro and Kike Lopez stay. They have been on loan here but their parent clubs have already signed agreements with CDT. Omar, Josmar, Nico and German all return after being loaned out, but their futures are up in the air. It’s surely play-them-orsell-them time for Josmar and Omar. Goalie Sergio Aragoneses is under contract and unlikely to leave, but he will be offered higher-standard clubs. Aridane, Medina, Abel, Chechu, Razak, Tarantino and Ayoze are under contract for next year, but they could be moved on. Of those out of contract, Cristobal, Zazo, Kiko Raton and Meji will all be released. Victor Bravo told the media this week that he wants to stay, and Tenerife-born Ruben Rosquete, has said the same. It’s going to be another summer of change, upheaval and uncertainty. Well, apart from one thing. After 10 months, we are back to where we started.

Horoscopes of the week Cancer

(June 22nd - July 23rd)

LOSERS

Don’t be forced into any decisions. Make sure you sleep on anything that is important. Even if you had the right answer in the beginning, then taking a little time to dwell on it is sure to give you the confidence which has so far been lacking. Your energy levels increase from Sunday allowing you to keep to the social plans which you were thinking you’d have to cancel. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) Ideas you have been having for your future have been more difficult to put into practice than you had thought. What you need to be doing Leo, is working as a team. By doing so, you can make up for lost time and even excel with your plans. News of a baby or pregnancy brings joy to your inner circle. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) A long-standing commitment or association comes to an end and you may be unsure of how you feel about this. Time is your best answer Virgo. Don’t try to look too far ahead but take each day as it comes and let the new you come to the fore. You’ve changed and I know it’s for the better, so embrace it, don’t fight it. it’s imperative you’re nice to everyone this week. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) News of an ex friend or even lover may cause some speculation and gossip. Don’t add fuel to the fire and start gossiping Libra, as aspects suggest you don’t yet know the whole story. You will by Friday though, when you’ll have good reason to want to distance yourself from something which can be of no benefit to you now. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) Gambles in your career are, for once, worth indulging in. You can afford to trust your instincts and to tell others exactly what it is that you want from them professionally. Personally, it’s a whole different matter

though and you would be wise to listen, not speak, to a loved one who is no longer willing to have their needs put on the back burner. S AG I T TA R I U S (November 23rdDecember 21st) Some sort of monetary boost is forecast and if you can try to save a little bit of money instead of trying to spend every bit of it then you should end up with a very large smile on your face as you end the month of June. Investing in solo ventures is favoured; especially if it links to a skill you’ve had for years. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) A rather alternative few days ahead are predicted for you and it may be nigh on impossible for you to follow any sort of a normal routine. Be bold in love and say how you feel. The other person can’t, but you can do the ground work for both of you. Time spent with younger faces reveals something you didn’t know. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) You still have a lot of learning and study to do if you are to get the most from your career. Old friends come back into your life thanks to a special occasion they are planning to which you will be invited. Children prove expensive, but for a very worthwhile reason. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Think before you act this week please Pisces, as it’s clear from your chart that you’re not thinking

with both your head and your heart. Your element of water helps you to focus on the long term, not just your short term goals and this is your key for fine tuning and fixing the things which have been going wrong so far. Phone me now to hear how emails can bring riches into your life. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Close relationships come under lucky influences and you can finally sort out a matter which has been driving you and a loved one apart. Better times are forecast and you start to settle into your life with less trepidation. Don’t leave work for another day. Get it in on time or even early to impress those around you. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) You come into contact with a lot of new people, several of whom could well become life-long friends. You were spending too much of your time getting into mischief but from this week onwards you start to find life satisfying again. Mars promises a change to a problem in the home which also makes for a more harmonious abode. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) If you are thinking of paying out any large sums of money, then shop around and don’t take the first offer which comes your way. You’re in a rush this week and it’s imperative that you slow your pace. If not, then you could end up looking sloppy and foolish to the very faces you were trying to impress.
