A flaming nuisance! British media put boot into Tenerife with horrendous fire stories ANYONE reading reports in the UK press over the past week could be forgiven for thinking Tenerife was ablaze, with thousands of people fleeing for their lives. Absolute twaddle! Yes, we’ve had a recurrence of fires following last month’s scare. We even had three fresh ones on Wednesday, which were rendered safe within hours. But even as Ricardo Melchior, Tenerife Cabildo President, was announcing on Monday that the situation on the Island would soon be downgraded to a “level 1” fire - the online UK news providers were saying that the Tenerife blaze was raging out of control, and were advising tourists to contact their tour operators. It caused panic among those UK residents with family here, and many Expats living on the island receiving calls and texts from friends and family asking if they were okay. Then, on Monday night, both the BBC and ITV evening news over-dramatised the forest fires here, causing more panic in Britain. So who generated this false information? Canarian Weekly spoke on Monday evening with the Foreign & Commonwealth office in London, whose spokesperson denied they had issued a statement starting with the words: “The Foreign & Commonwealth office advise…” True, the situation on La Gomera was far worst as the

fire ripped though the forest, causing many villagers to be evacuated from their homes as a precaution. Yet, for some reason, Tenerife was bracketed with La Gomera, so we read that “thousands were evacuated from the Canary Islands”. On Tuesday morning, Canarian Weekly informed the Tenerife Cabildo about the damaging coverage in Britain. In turn, the Cabildo advised us that they were contacting their media agents in the UK to clarify information being broadcast. Come Wednesday and the Cabildo sent us information to illustrate that their new messages were being broadcast in the UK correctly. Having tamed last month’s fires after a hectic five

days, Tenerife’s fire brigade (Bomberos) were forced to start all over again when fire broke out in Rui Gomez, just outside of El Tanque last Friday evening. Rui Gomez resident, David Watson told Canarian Weekly, “It started near my house on Friday night, I stayed up all night, the wind was blowing away from the house, at about 6.30am on Saturday it just flared up. "There were massive flames and the sky was full of smoke. The village was full of the emergency services, who were brilliant. But they had no water because the tank in Erjos is empty.” The leading edge of the fire was initially at Erjos, near El Tanque, but then flames extended towards the

boundaries of the Los Silos and Buenavista del Norte municipalities. Temperatures in the zone were between 35-40 degrees, humidity was 15% and wind was gusting at up to 60 kilometres per hour, making the job of extinguishing the blaze so much more difficult. The fire quickly spread because of the dry conditions and was raised to a level 2 incident on Saturday with various villages, including El Palmar, Masca and Santiago del Teide being evacuated for a short period. By Monday, however, the situation was under control, thanks to fire-fighters on the ground, supported by helicopters and sea planes. But that wasn’t the end of it because on Wednesday three

separate fires were reported, albeit small ones, in the mountainous regions of Los Realejos, La Esperanza and La Orotava. The total area affected was 16 hectares but, fortunately, they were all under control by the end of the day as the heroic firemen pulled out all the stops. Worryingly, Ana Lupe Mora, Tenerife’s Minister of Environment, suggested that all three fires could have been started deliberately. “All indications are they have been intentional,” she said. And Manuel Dominguez, Mayor of Los Realejos, agreed, saying: “There is a very accessible track with little distance between the fires.” With this in mind, The Guardia Civil, together with

local police, began inspecting vehicles passing through the area. Meanwhile, on La Gomera, where the forest fire started on 4th August and then reignited on Saturday, there was devastation and despair as it threatened the population and tore through 750 hectares of the Garajonay National Park, which is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Crews on the ground and in the air worked flat-out to prevent the fire advancing any further and several areas were evacuated. Thousands were evacuated for safety reasons from various villages and some families were believed to have lost their homes in Valle Gran Rey. The SUC and the Red Cross were yesterday (Thursday) moving disabled people back to their homes in Valle Gran Rey and Vallehermoso. And Javier Gonzalez Ortiz Minister of Economy, Finance and Security of the Canary Islands, said that the fire had “stabilised favourably”. Ground crews were cooling down the affected area by hose, and air support had been dumping water since the morning. But the nightmare just won’t disappear because weather forecasts for the weekend say another heatwave will arrive in the Canaries on Sunday. And that could spell more trouble! As for the British media, in a 30-second bulletin they appear to have done their utmost to wreck Tenerife Cabildo’s fantastic efforts this year to rebuild our main industry - the tourist sector – which has been progressing so healthily.

Mercadona withdraws Deliplus skin-care range SUPERMARKET giant Mercadona has withdrawn 11 cosmetics products from its shelves after being informed by the Spanish Medicine Association that they each contain two substances. There are triethanolamine, a PH corrector, and bronopol, a preservative, which cannot be included together in one single product, because when combined they can generate nitrosamine, which has been shown to cause cancers among many species of animal. Tests have shown the substance could also be a contributory factor to stomach cancer in humans. The Health Ministry said that use of the products would not lead to “any risk to health” in the short or medium term, but noted that studies suggest that nitrosamines can be harmful in the long term. All of the 11 products were withdrawn at the end of July. As an additional precaution, RNB, the company that makes the products, (sun creams, after-sun lotions and skin moisturisers), has changed the barcodes on new batches of the lotions with the correct formula to prevent any of the tainted ones slipping through at checkouts. According to RNB, the absence of any health risk attached to the products led the state agency not to issue a public health alert. Mercadona stated it would exchange any of the tainted products for new ones or refund the money.

What are nitrosamines and should we be worried? The UK Department of Trade and Industry (now the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform) characterises nitrosamines as more toxic in more animal species than any other category of chemical carcinogen. According to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, nitrosamines are common in cosmetics, but because they are impurities, they are not listed on product labels. RNB, which supplies Mercadona with products bearing the Deliplus brand name, said it understood that a change in the regulations put the onus on providers to ascertain that the conjunction of chemicals did not produce nitrosamines.

Where It Comes From Nitrosamines are created in cosmetics when nitrates and various amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) are in favourable conditions to combine. Specifically, nitrosamines form when certain proteins, such as diethanolamine (DEA) or triethanolamine (TEA), are used in the same products as preservatives that can break down into nitrates. As these various compounds break down over time, they can recombine into nitrosamines. Both DEA and TEA are common additives used to adjust the pH or act as wetting agents. The inadvertent creation of this carcinogenic compound can add a whole new challenge for consumers reading labels for safety, since nitrosamines do not appear on a label, and the precursor building blocks are not clearly noted.

17 August - 23 August 2012

According to the company, its technicians were satisfied that the products did not do so, but the agency decided on a complete withdrawal to avoid any potential risks to the public. The 11 products that were taken out of circulation are: Deliplus nutritiva corporal con aceite de oliva; Deliplus crema de manos nutritiva; Deliplus hidratante corporal con aloe; Deliplus hidratante corporal efecto luminosidad; Deliplus hidratante corporal reafirmante; Deliplus hidratante antisequedad para pies; Deliplus nutritiva corporal con almendras; Deliplus hidratante corporal pieles atópicas; Solcare loción after sun hidratante; Solcare loción after sun luminosidad; Solcare gel after sun aloe vera. (Deliplus

body lotion with olive oil; Deliplus hand cream; Deliplus body moisturizer with aloe; Deliplus illuminating body lotion; Deliplus reaffirming body lotion;

Deliplus anti-dryness foot moisturizer; Deliplus almond body lotion; Deliplus body lotion for atopic skin types; Solcare aftersun lotion; Solcare illumi-

Products That May Contain Nitrosamines Nitrosamines are a potential impurity in 53 ingredients and more than 10,000 of the products listed in the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database as of July 2008. Due to the common nature of this impurity, nearly every kind of personal care product, including mascara, concealer, conditioner, baby shampoo, pain relief salve and sunless tanning lotion, can contain nitrosamines as an impurity. Nitrosamines have been banned from use in cosmetics by Canada and the European Union.

nating after-sun lotion; and Solcare after-sun gel with aloe.) While the risk of succumbing to the potential effects of nitrosamines in cosmetic and personal care products may be low, it is best to avoid products where these contaminants might lurk. Be wary of ingredients with names containing the letters DEA such as lauramide DEA as well as the ingredients diethanolamine and triethanolamine. Another secondary amine that may contribute to nitrosamine formation is N-methylglycine, also called sarcosine. This can be a part of ingredients like cocoyl sarcosine and sodium lauroyl sarcosinate. Also avoid potential nitrite producing preservatives like bronidox (5-bromo-5nitro-1,3-dioxane) and bronopol (2-bromo-2nitropropane-1,3-diol), both of which may be used in cleansing products like shampoos.

NO, it’s not a new excursion, a dance move or a cocktail but a confidence trick, an elaborate deception performed by hustlers or grifters; in this case someone calling themselves Larry Hilton, using a fake address in the UK and when you trace the leads, email addresses etc, etc it leads to Nigeria! But the worrying thing is through the facelessness of the internet they’re using

the internet to access their prey, through online for sale advertisements. The hustle comes in as once they have gained your confidence they ask you to send a sum of money via Western Union for a reason, it all appears to be above board, but last week in Tenerife it set alarm bells ringing for one Los Abrigos resident. The story: a young Canarian man advertises his Ford escort car for sale in Milanuncios.com, used for selling items by many of us here in Tenerife. He received an email in English from someone claiming to be Larry Hilton, residing at 32 Leabank Square, London, E9 5LR. Mrs. K, (Aunty) then dealt with the sale, as all the

correspondence was in English. Hilton agreed to the asking price, strange in itself, claiming to be buying the car for family in-laws, here in Tenerife. The transaction was to be conducted through Paypal. Then a hitch occurred, Hilton requested 800 euros be paid via Western Union to the person collecting the vehicle on his behalf. Alarm bells started to ring for Mrs. K, and what followed was a tirade of abusive emails, believable emails including pictures and even with Hilton threatening police action, ironically. The scammer even went to the point of sending emails purporting to be from Paypal saying that the funds were in

Mrs. K’s account (for the car) but on hold! The scammer was very persistent, email after email. Eventually Mrs. K contacted Paypal to find that it was a ‘phishing Scam’ The moral of the story is, if something seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you’re selling something through whatever medium, you are the seller, you do not need to part with any money, and you should be receiving the money! Mrs. K was very frightened by her ordeal and told the Canarian Weekly her story in the hope that no other person will get duped. Never give your personal details or your password to anyone, no matter who they say they are.

Cancer Research UK is having a major facelift to give funds a huge lift

First forces family to visit Tenerife CAPTAIN Anthony Harris, (Tony) 31, his wife Elizabeth, (Liz) and their two children, Felix (5) and Emily (3), have spent this week in Tenerife enjoying a week -long family holiday at Club La Costa World’s Sunningdale Village holiday resort.

They’ve been on the Submarine Safari courtesy of SUB Safaris and the children are learning to swim with the help of Marjan de Vreot, Resort Manager. Just another family enjoying a break in Tenerife, so what? Well, Tony, Liz and their children are the first military family to enjoy a holiday in the sun under the Give Us Time initiative launched by former defence secretary Dr Liam Fox. Captain Harris, from Great Missenden, Bucks, was injured three years ago after his Jackal armoured vehicle was destroyed by an IED (improvised explosive device), which resulted in him ten months later losing the lower part of his left leg. He was on his sixth tour of duty within a seven year period, in Afghanistan. Tony told Canarian Weekly: “It was a normal day, us going into the desert as the forward vehicle. We hit the device, which was directly underneath me. My other two colleagues in the vehicle were blown clear; they were fine.

“Once this happens it’s almost like an automatic process kicks in, I started administering first aid to myself, I knew both my feet were fractured and injuries to my arm, the other guys began searching around us and found six more devices. “Within 30 minutes the helicopter arrived, it had a Sky news crew on, funnily enough, and everyone was cracking jokes, saying what things someone people will do to go home (it happened two weeks before the birth of my daughter). “Then within 48 hours I was being treated in Birmingham.” Since then, Tony has gone through numerous operations, eventually deciding to have his lower leg amputated 10 months after the incident, his last operation being in December last year. He serves in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and has shown huge determination to not only overcome serious injury but to dedicate himself to raising funds for service charities, supporting families whose lives have been changed by combat. The Give Us Time project was launched in June under the charity Afghan Heroes, set up by mothers as a legacy to the sons and daughters who have lost their lives during the Afghan conflict. It aims to provide holidays for armed service families to recover from the trauma of combat and to adjust in a neutral and quality environment. Graham Wilding, Club La Costa World’s Commercial Director for the Canaries, said:

17 August - 23 August 2012

“It is an honour and a pleasure to welcome Captain Harris and his family to Sunningdale Village and we very much hope that they enjoy their holiday with CLC World. The children are learning to swim and are thoroughly enjoying the resort’s swimming pools! We are delighted to be the first resort offering a holiday for the Give Us Time project and our staff will be doing everything we can to make the family’s stay memorable and relaxing as well as giving them an insight into what makes Tenerife so popular with visitors.” Dr Fox called on holidayhome operators, secondhome owners and timeshare companies and owners to donate weeks which could be used by service personnel and their families for recuperation after a tour of duty, by families who have lost a loved one and by those who have suffered mental or physical injury in combat. A database has been set up to register donated weeks, and Club La Costa World was one of the first companies to sign up. Since the launch of the initiative, nearly ten years worth of holiday time has already been pledged. Denise Harris, founder of Afghan Heroes, whose son Lee lost his life in Afghanistan, said: “This fantastic response and generosity means that we can now help a huge number of families who will be able to spend quality time together to readjust and relax in a stressfree environment. The holiday that Captain Harris and his family thanks to CLC World,

will be just the first as we start to roll out a programme that will benefit so many service families whose lives have been affected and in some cases completely changed. "The launch of Give Us Time and the fantastic reaction from the public and a number of companies means we can help many families and make a real difference to helping them readjust together.” Tony said: “This is a great initiative to allow families time and space to enjoy each others company again after what can be harrowing times and truly life-changing situations. When something like this happens, it’s the injured person who gets all the attention, but equally, the family find it difficult to cope. “The military, my regiment and many service charities all played a big part in getting me to the point where I am now.” Liz Harris said: “It is a great privilege to be chosen as the first family to take part in one of these holidays, this is perfect for us. Public support makes such a difference.” So what does the future hold for the Harris family? Tony hopes to shortly be medically discharged and is already speaking in local schools about what happened to him, getting across the message that despite being injured he’s still the same person. Give Us Time is an initiative to help families adjust to life after combat. It is administered by Afghan Heroes (registered charity: 1132340).

JUST as the London Olympics have left an amazing legacy to inspire future generations, so Cancer Research UK is planning to have the same effect on the nation. With that in mind, officials have decided to rebrand the charity to create even more awareness, beginning with a bright new logo. In a message to their millions of supporters, Dr Harpal Kumar, Chief Executive Officer of the biggest cancer charity in the world, told them: “We, too, want to leave a legacy for future generations: a world free from the fear of cancer. What’s more, we’re getting closer to this brave ambition, day by day. “We want to make sure nothing slows down our progress. Your support has been amazing and, with more people like you supporting us, we can beat cancer. “We just want to get there sooner - for everyone - which is why we’ve refreshed our brand. Thank you for your support.” His statement continues: “This September, we will be rolling out a refreshed Cancer Research UK brand identity, and we wanted to share with you the reasons why we’ve changed. What’s changing? “Our supporters are rightly proud of our brand - what we do, why we do it and what we have achieved. So the big question is, why change? “To answer that question, let’s start with what we’re not changing: our name for one. “Cancer Research UK is recognised as the leading cancer research charity in the world. We’re not changing our strategy and will continue to pioneer research into prevention, treatment and cures for all cancers.

“What’s not as widely recognised is the impact of our work. We’ve been instrumental in discovering and developing newer, kinder treatments, and helping double survival rates in just 40 years. “But there’s so much more to do because one in three of us will be affected by this devastating disease and, because of an ageing population, this statistic will get worse. “That’s why accelerating progress is one of the strongest catalysts for change. New technologies and our understanding of genetics mean that we can get closer to cures much quicker - if we can raise additional research funding. “To do this, we need the impact of the work we do, and the work our supporters generously fund, to be better and more widely understood than it currently is. “So what we have changed is our logo and communication style to more accurately reflect who and what we are: a collective force of supporters, scientists, doctors and nurses coming together to beat all cancers - including the one that matters most to you. “This change is more far reaching than simply a new logo. It’s about who we are, how we do things and what we’re here to achieve. And this includes you. Each and every one of us is represented as part of Cancer Research UK. “We are the smart, brave people who come together to make up this collective force. And, if we stand united, cancer doesn’t stand a chance!”

NEWS IN BRIEF Olympics’ Royal knockback QUEEN SOFIA, Prince Felipe and his wife Princess Letizia attempted to enter the “mixed zone” at the Excel venue, hoping to congratulate Spain’s Olympian Nico Garcia on his Taekwondo silver medal. But an Olympic volunteer denied them entry because they did not have the correct accreditation. “Who is the future King of Spain? Well I did not know,” the unnamed volunteer, who told the future monarch: “You are not going in!” He then turned his back on the Spanish royals who, after pleas from Royal security staff were rejected, departed. But they took it in good heart and Princess Letizia, a former TV news anchor before marrying the Crown Prince, took pictures throughout the exchange with her mobile phone.

Spain ignores a rescue bid BRUSSELS says it is “good news” that Spain has not asked for a rescue. The European Commission will, according to its plans, pay out as much as 30 billion euros in October. Sources in the Community Executive say they maintain contact with the Spanish authorities on the rescue of the financial entities, and say they have received no request from Madrid to activate the 100bn-euro aid.

Self-employed ploughing on SPAIN’S self-employed workers spend an average seven hours more time at work per week than those who are employed. They work 45 hours a week compared with 38 hours for contracted workers. But self-employed collectives have noted the difficulties this brings in terms of maintaining their family lives. The recession has led to the self-employed working longer and longer hours.

Healthy U-turn for foreigners THE Spanish Government will modify a controversial plan to deny public healthcare to undocumented immigrants. It will still maintain care facilities, while billing their country of origin where treaties allow. Foreigners living in Spain without residency permits were to be denied treatment at public hospitals apart from exceptional circumstances. But the health reform outraged immigrants’ rights groups, and hundreds of doctors rebelled.

La Palma is flying high LA PALMA has seen a sharp increase in foreign tourists, according to figures provided by the Ministry of Tourism for the Canary Islands. Based on data from AENA, the island received 9,613 foreign visitors in July, which represented an increase of 34.2% over the same period last year. In the first seven months, of this year, 10,620 passengers arrived on the island, which was an increase of 17.4%. The other islands have not registered this significant increase, and only Tenerife has managed to show an increase in foreign tourism in this period.

An itch for Gran Canaria MORE than 42,000 people in the Canary Islands have psoriasis, with an excess of 20,000 living in Gran Canaria. Psoriasis causes severe skin irritation and redness and is caused by a failure in the immune system, which then causes over-active skin cell production. The condition can be aggravated by smoking and boozing.

Balcony tumblers be warned! THE British Embassy in Madrid, concerned with the spate of balcony falls by holiday-makers in Spain, has launched a joint warning with ABTA - The Travel Association to potential victims. It follows 13 reported incidents of youngsters falling from balconies so far this year, with three deaths and the others seriously injured. In Majorca and Ibiza, two of UK’s top tourist destinations, there have been nine cases - already matching the 2011 figures. Most incidents involve the 18-35 age group, and alcohol often plays a part. Paul Abrey, British Consul in the Balearics, said: “We’ve already seen some tragic

cases this summer, which have had devastating consequences for the individuals and families concerned. “Some people have fallen while climbing to a friend’s apartment, others have simply lost their footing after a few too many drinks and a few have deliberately jumped off, aiming for the pool below (known as balconeering). “It should go without saying that these practices are extremely dangerous and can cost them their lives, or leave them permanently disabled. And many young people also arrive without travel insurance. “We can’t pay medical bills,

and holiday-makers may end up paying out thousands for medical bills and flights back to the UK.” ABTA predicts around three million young holidaymakers will head overseas this summer, with Spain, Greece and Turkey their favourite destinations. Youngsters travelling out to resorts will be handed leaflets which include the story of 18-year-old Liverpudlian Jake Evans, who narrowly survived a fall from a seventh-floor balcony last year after a few too many drinks. Jake was featured on British television this week, recounting his horrific story, with a warning to young people to go easy on the booze on holiday. He has also made a video of how he was reaching over his balcony to catch a cigarette lighter from his pal below and simply tumbled over.

He woke up sprawled on a sun bed - which helped break his fall - with horrendous, multiple injuries. But alive! Nikki White, ABTA Head of Destinations and Sustainability, said: “Each year, too many young people are permanently injured or worse because they’ve tried to climb over or dive off their hotel balcony. She added: “ABTA, the Foreign Office and tourist authorities are all working together to help raise awareness of the dangers and prevent these incidents. “The after-effects are often made even worse through holiday-makers travelling uninsured, and parents having to raise large amounts of money to get their children home. “Our advice aims to help holiday-makers to use their balconies safely and prevent more of these tragic and avoidable incidents.”

Honey competition coming THERE’S a buzz in the air and it could have something to do with the announcement from the Cabildo that the sixteenth edition of the Regional Honey Competition, organised by the Casa de la Miel, is coming soon. The Cabildo counsellor for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, José Joaquín Bethencourt, explains that this event, the biggest in Spain, has made important progress in the enhancement and dissemination of excellent honey produced on the Island and right across the Canaries. Bethencourt adds that this next contest, to be held on October 23rd and 25th, will be the first in which productions are presented under the Designation of Origin label, (PDO), under which the honeys are marketed. This makes Tenerife the only island with this mark of quality available to consumers.

Products submitted for the competition must be from areas designated for beekeepers, and whose holdings are registered with the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Canary Islands. Contestants may submit a honey sample, and farms with 50 or more hives may present two types of honey. Samples collected can enter in the categories of unifloral or multifloral, from the coast,

the mountainous regions or the summit. The coast category is honey produced in hives located at altitudes below 600 metres and the flowers are based on barilla, tajinaste, cachuela, banana and avocado, among others. Mountain honey comes from altitudes varying between 450 and 1,250 metres, concentrating on brown flowers, oregano, fennel or heather. As for the summit honeys,

they come from altitudes above 1,100 meters from the flowers found there. Last year there were 94 samples presented in the competition, with Tenerife providing 58 in total, followed by La Palma (24), El Hierro (3), La Gomera (3) and Gran Canaria (2). Prizes will be awarded on November 24th, the same day that the XVI Regional Beekeeping Meeting and the XII Beekeeping Technical Conference will take place.

Rajoy does U-turn on unemployment aid PRIME Minister Mariano Rajoy has announced that his government is going to extend the 400-euro monthly subsidy currently being paid out to 200,000 of Spain’s more than five million unemployed workers, which was due to have ended this week. Following an outcry from across the nation, including strong words from our own Canarian Government President Paulino Rivero, Rajoy has announced the U-turn that will continue relief payments to the over 32,000 out-of-work people here in the Canaries. President Rivero wrote on his personal blog,

paulinorivero.com, that the PP government now had the opportunity to demonstrate their degree of sensitivity, solidarity and commitment to social justice. “We are talking about extreme situations, no income families whose only lifeline is the 400 euro payment, and this is not just to make ends meet, but to get to tomorrow.” Paulino Rivero underlines the responsibility of government,“To ensure social justice, solidarity and defend

and foster a fair distribution of resources, especially in crisis situations”. Now, in clear response, Rajoy said that he considered the Popular Party (PP) administration’s decision to keep the checks coming to those who fall under the program “a fair move,” and stressed that this was the second time that public aid has been broadened with the aim of “helping those who do not have jobs find work.” Nevertheless, the PM said that Plan Prepara is not meeting its goals and pledged to work on ways “to try to improve it.” “The government has taken many drastic measures, many people’s taxes have been raised, and there have been adjustments in many sectors, so we believe that keeping this small allowance makes sense at a very difficult moment such as this one,” he said. It was another turn-around

for Rajoy, who last month said that Plan Prepara would be eliminated as part of a set of budget-cutting measures. Participants in Plan Prepara are among the neediest in terms of state support, given that to qualify for the scheme they must have already exhausted their regular unemployment benefit, and have annual income of less than 75% of the minimum wage (7,696 euros). In exchange, recipients join a programme aimed at getting them into the job market. It wasn’t immediately clear exactly how long the unemployed will be able to draw from the fund, but reports suggested that the scheme would run for at least six more months. The details of the measure will be approved by the Cabinet next week retroactively from the day that the money budgeted for the plan would have run out.

Cabildo co-ordinates emergency services THE Tenerife Cabildo is working on the creation of a unique centre to co-ordinate the various services needed during emergency situations, where they are all located in the same space with staff from each administration involved in the management of emergencies, including fires. “We are working on creating an emergency coordination centre for the Island. We want it to be in collaboration with the Canary Islands Government, in order to improve the response of the Cabildo in these situations,” said Cabildo Security adviser, José Antonio Valbuena. The counsellor explained, “We want to continue to improve, and we have

proposed a meeting with the Canarian Government in September, to discuss how the services responded to the fire, to analyse and to put on the table any conclusions and suggestions for improvement, and thereby develop a consensus”. The Cabildo expects the centre to be operating, “next year,” although the counsellor is aware of, “the economic problems we have.” Valbuena said, “This is an important step from the point of view of coordination, with everything centralised, such as Security, Fire, Environmental, Highways and Water, 112 and all the other departments involved”. He concluded that this new provision would improve and facilitate the management of all emergencies, since, “The technicians, who are the decision makers, need to share a space, and politicians must facilitate this demand.”

Thousands still flock to Candelaria WITH thousands of pilgrims making the journey to Candelaria, this year’s celebrations in honour of the patron Saint of the Canary Islands, The Virgin of Candelaria, is a little different.

Many have had to change their plans since the recent fire made the usual pilgrimage routes impossible to risk on foot. Yet come they have, but not bearing the usual floral offerings seen in past years. This year, Bishop Bernardo Alvarez, called on the faithful to bring food to distribute among needy families in the municipality. Already, more than 100 kilos of food has been donated. The story of La Morenita The Virgin of Candelaria, also called La Morenita (Dear Dark One), is Patroness of the Canary Islands According to legend, a statue washed up in Tenerife at the end of the 14th century, shortly before the Canary Islands were occupied by Spain, when the native Guanches were still living free. According to the legend, there were two shepherds who used to lock their

livestock in a cave at the end of the day. One day the animals refused to go in and seemed scared. Looking around to see what upset them, the shepherds saw the statue of Our Lady near the mouth of the cave on the edge of the water. They thought she was a normal living woman, and since men weren’t allowed to talk to or approach women outside of settlements, they motioned to her to go away. When she didn’t respond, one of the shepherds decided to throw rocks at her. Immediately his arm became paralyzed. The other man became angry and pulled his knife on the Virgin, but it only cut himself. At that they fled in fear to the king to report these strange happenings. The king and his council went to the cave at once. Since nobody else dared to touch the statue, the king ordered the two shepherds who had already been injured to pick it up and bring her to his home. The moment they touched her with a peaceful intention, they were healed. Now the king understood that this woman was a benevolent supernatural thing and he decided to carry her himself. However, after a little while he had to ask for help because she was

17 August - 23 August 2012

too heavy to carry alone. That’s why today there is a big cross at the place where the Virgin was found and at the place where the king had to ask for help, there is a chapel dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, another famous icon of the Virgin Mary. The Virgin of Candelaria was brought to a cave and worshipped as an unknown goddess. After some time a certain youngster called Anton recognised who she really was. He had been converted while enslaved by Spaniards and then escaped home to his island. Now he taught the king and his court the Christian faith. Once they got to know the “Mother of the Sustainer of Heaven and Earth,” they moved her to another cave near the sea for public veneration. The statue once was stolen by Spaniards, but they returned her after a plague broke out that was felt to be a punishment for this sacrilegious robbery. In 1826, an unusually high tide washed Our Lady back out to sea and she was lost. The present statue was carved to replace the original. The Virgin of Candelaria was officially declared Patroness of the Canary Islands in 1867 and canonically crowned in 1889.

A huge cocaine haul in Canaries A PRIVATE plane was intercepted recently by police at the Gran Canaria airport, after Venezuelan authorities tipped off Interpol that over one ton of cocaine had been camouflaged as humanitarian aid, authorities confirmed. At the ensuing inspection, the authorities found bundles of cocaine covered with emblems of an international humanitarian organisation. The crew was taken into

custody without revealing the nationality of any of its members. They were arrested for drug trafficking. However, according to sources within the Venezuelan Government, an Australian woman arrived at the Arturo Michelena Airport in the central part of the country, where the aircraft was waiting. She was seen with two German pilots and an Austrian crew member. They then made an unauthorised take-off during the night, when the airport was closed. This is one of the most important anti-drugs operations in the Canary Islands in recent years.

Foul odour in Playa San Juan SOME days are worse than others, but for the most part there has been a very bad smell evident along part of the seafront in Playa San Juan recently. The consequences for this area of the town are troubling local business owners and residents, who seem to have lost patience with the situation. The problem stems from a sewage purification facility. It seems that every time there is a fault at the plant, or whenever the sea is rough, pure sewage is released into the open sea. The area affected is a popular seafront promenade, with shops, bars and restaurants suffering with the smell, which is also being noticed by the passing tourist trade. People are demanding an immediate solution, including opposition party at the Town Council, the Coalicion Canaria. Ana Dorta, a CC Councillor, said: “A tourist-based town such as Playa San Juan cannot permit this kind of damaging occurrence, where residents and tourists walk along the seafront, doing shopping

Page 8

or going into the bars and restaurants. The smell and state of this pumping station is insupportable. We have had many complaints sent to the Guia de Isora Socialist Council, which has been in power for 17 years without finding a definitive solution to the problem." Dorta is blaming poor maintenance and care of the facility and says it should be reviewed more frequently, to make sure it is in proper working order. As far as the Guia de Isora Town Council is concerned, they acknowledge the bad smell from the plant and agree that a solution must be found. Councillor for Services, Bruno Domínguez, spoke of a hypothetical project which is still without finance and will be extremely expensive, that would replace the existing equipment with new, modern machinery that would eliminate the foul smell. “We know about the situation and we have a few projects on the table,” he said. “I can say that for us it is a priority to find a solution and we do understand that the people have been bothered by the smell. Almost everyday, revisions are being carried out at the plant.”

‘We Love Nooctua’ comes to Santa Cruz

AFTER bringing the Festival 4on4 Tour to the islands of La Gomera, La Palma and El Hierro with undoubted success, the ‘We Love Nooctua’ final show will now take place on September 15th in the capital, Santa Cruz (The Mayorazgo,) a date which replaces the Saturday August 18th show, which has been changed for organisational reasons.

During the months of July and August, Canarian DJ’s David Laurentini, Char de Armas (both residents of We Love Nooctua), Mark H. (Embassy Bar resident), Big Charlie (resident Nooctua Capital), Carlos Chamo (North Nooctua resident) and Ruben Levi, have delighted audiences in the Western Isles and will now join forces for the closing party tour in September, just a day after the Opening Party organised for Nooctua Capital. For the close of the tour in Tenerife, there is a special promotional offer, and the first three hundred people who purchase a ticket will receive two for the price of one. Tickets can be purchased

from Monday, August 20th at the following outlets: La Flamenca in La Laguna (Heraclio Sánchez, 11) and in Santa Cruz de Tenerife at the Mercado Nuestra Señora de África; Deportes Base in plaza Weyler and in CC Meridiano de Santa Cruz de Tenerife; cafetería M-30 in Tacoronte; Café Lounge Pcan in Los Realejos; Embassy Bar in La Laguna and at Nooctua Capital (El Mayorazgo) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. So far, thousands of people have enjoyed the performances of acrobats, contortionists and fabulous fireworks, plus music from the best DJ’s in the Canaries. This initiative is one of the activities performed by the

Nooctua Group throughout the year and whose main objective is to highlight Canary Islands’ artists, offering a space where they can express themselves and at the same time entertain. To do this, the management company has deployed an entire assembly of lavish tents, lights, LED displays, visual and sound equipment, all of which has required the work of a highly skilled team of professionals. We Love Nooctua is sponsored by Coffee Lounge in collaboration with PCAN Coansa, Coke, Red Bull, Havana Club and Hotel Silken Atlantida Santa Cruz. Admission is 12 euros and 15 euros presale at the box office and includes a drink.

The Los Abrigos fish market opening soon Ten photographers, 10 views, 100 images MAGMA, Centro de Arte & Congress, located in Playa de Las Americas, will be hosting TEN-DIEZ, an exhibition by 10 photographers, from 21st - 29th September. Doors will open at 5pm on Friday 21st, and the Inauguration will be at 8pm on the same day, with live music commencing an hour later. A statement from the group says, “TEN-DIEZ is a movement created by 10 photographers based in Tenerife, and we have united with the intention of displaying a particular view of how we perceive our artistic environment,

Page 10

beyond the exotic geography that surrounds us, and with photography as a medium of expression, using different languages and photographic processes. “Our motivation is to have a closer and more extensive interaction with the public, involving ourselves actively in the process required to create an image, demonstrating it to the audience and collecting direct feedback from them - contact between creators and spectators”. As from Sunday 23rd until Friday 28th Magma doors will be open to the public between 10am - 8pm. The cafeteria will be open between these days and times, as well as the Art exhibition and projections of short-films throughout. www. ten-diez.com Photo: Mark Fradley

THE FINAL stages of the construction on the Los Abrigos fish market are underway, according to Granadilla Mayor Esteban Gonzalez.

With a total budget of almost 250,000 euros, the project, said the Mayor, responds to the needs of the fishery industry in Los Abrigos, which has one of the largest fleets in the south of the Island. The building is roughly 100 square metres and is semicircular. The ground floor will have the port offices and public fish market, while upstairs on the second floor are areas for the fishermen’s use The management of the fish market is to be carried by fishing professionals in the area who are registered in the Municipality of Granadilla de Abona and belong to the

Fishermen’s Association of the Port of Los Cristianos (Our Lady of Mercy). The Town Council, says Esteban Gonzalez, is already working on the documentation for the constitution of this group, as well as administrative procedures and health issues necessary for the opening of the market. It is hoped that a fresh fish market will encourage sales as well as create jobs in an industry that is suffering in this time of widespread economic crisis. This project, the Mayor emphasised, “Is a priority for the Council and after much hard work, we can now

declare that it will soon be a reality.” With the nearest outlet currently located in Las Galletas, “We believed that Los Abrigos, considering the volume and frequency of the catches, long deserved a point of sale right here in the town.” Esteban Gonzalez concluded. “We believe the market will improve things for the community as a whole, not to mention the fact that we have the best catches of bluefish in Tenerife South. “Improving fisheries is to improve employment and sales, and that’s not just retail sales but also wholesalers to retailers”.

Can you recognise this £16m fraudster? BRITAIN’S most wanted alleged tax fugitives have been exposed publicly for the first time as HM Revenue & Customs launches a fresh bid to track down the fraudsters.

And one of them, cigarette smuggler Malcolm McGregor McGowan (pictured), is believed to be hiding out in Spain after doing a runner 11 years ago. McGowan, said to be from the Midlands/Scotland, was involved in the illegal import of 56,600 cigarettes, with a street value of more than £16m. He went on trial in September 2001 and pleaded not guilty. But he fled abroad before it ended. He was eventually found guilty in his absence in 2011 and sentenced to four years imprisonment. He is among the faces published online by HMRC of

17 August - 23 August 2012

its “Most Wanted” tax criminals as part of a new appeal to the public, asking for help in tracing them. They are all accused of fleeing after being charged with a crime, or during trial, according to Revenue & Customs. Collectively, they have cost the Treasury almost £800m, and the move comes as the David Cameron’s Coalition Government is attempting to clamp down on tax evasion. The list includes Hussain Asad Chohan, a smuggler and fraudster from the West Midlands, who has cost the taxpayer an estimated £200m and is believed to be hiding in

Dubai. It also features Gordon Arthur, believed to be in the US after absconding while on bail in 2000. He is accused of dodging an estimated £15m in tax on imported alcohol and cigarettes. HMRC work with Crimestoppers to gather information which might help trace the fugitives, but this is the first time their photographs and details have been published. Exchequer Secretary David Gauke said: “The Government is absolutely committed to tackling tax evasion and fraud. “These criminals have

collectively cost the taxpayer over £765m - and HMRC will pursue them relentlessly. “We hope that publishing their pictures in this way will enable members of the public to contribute to the effort to catch them.” Tax evasion and fraud costs the taxpayer around £10bn. The Government has invested over £900m in HMRC in an attempt to raise an extra £7bn a year in tax revenue. Anyone with information on the fugitives should contact the HMRC hotline on 0800 595 000, or via the Crimestoppers website www.crimestoppersuk.org.

Muamba is forced to quit after ‘dying’ on the pitch BOLTON midfielder Fabrice Muamba, the player who collapsed and “died” during a game at Tottenham last season, has retired from professional football. The decision was recommended by his medical team, following consultations with leading cardiologists in the UK and on mainland Europe. The 24-year-old’s heart stopped beating for 78 minutes following his collapse at White Hart Lane on 17th March. He spent a month in the London Chest Hospital before being discharged. The popular star said in a club statement: “Since suffering my heart attack and being discharged from hospital, I have remained utterly positive in the belief that I could one day resume my playing career and play for Bolton Wanderers once again. “As part of my ongoing recovery, last week I travelled to Belgium to seek further medical advice from a leading cardiologist. “But the news I received was obviously not what I had hoped it would be. and it means I am now

announcing my retirement from professional football. “Football has been my life since I was a teenage boy and it has given me so many opportunities. “Above all else, I love the game and count myself very lucky to have been able to play at the highest level. “While the news is devastating, I have much to be thankful for. I thank God that I am alive and I pay tribute once again to the members of the medical team, who never gave up on me. “I would also like to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my career, and the Bolton fans, who have been incredible. I am blessed to have the support of my family and friends at this time.”

Taxmen on the warpath BRITAIN’S tax officials are sending penalty notices of £1,200 and more to 500,000 people who have failed to return self-assessment returns. They were prompted after several reminders about returns from the 2010-11 tax year were ignored. HM Revenue and Customs introduced changes in April last year to boost incentives to file them, and cut the cost chasing up the missing forms. It means that those still ignoring self-assessment forms will be penalised more than in previous years. The letters being issued include a maximum £900 penalty for non-filing,

Page 12

together with another latefiling penalty of £300, or 5% of the tax due, whichever is higher. Stephen Banyard, HMRC’s Director General for personal tax, said:“We want the returns, and not the penalties. ”If someone has a reasonable excuse for not sending in a return on time, we will waive the penalty. “We also recognise that there will be some people who don’t need to be in selfassessment, and we will be happy to remove them from that system and cancel their penalty.” The tax office says people can appeal against the charges if they believe they have a reasonable excuse for not sending their tax return, such as a family illness or a bereavement.

So how much sunshine is really good for you?

THE health benefits and risks of spending time in the sun are being put under the microscope by Cancer Research UK. The world’s largest cancer research charity hopes the study will help solve years of controversy surrounding vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin - and how much sun is too much. Sun exposure needed to make enough vitamin D varies from person to person, depending mainly on skin colour. As yet, though, there are no clear guidelines about what level of sun exposure is

required to produce enough vitamin D without causing excessive DNA damage to the skin, which can cause skin cancer. The trial will use simulated sunlight to determine how much sun is needed for different skin types. Study leader Professor Lesley Rhodes, from the University of Manchester, said: “There’s no doubt that too much sun can seriously increase skin cancer risk, but we know there are also important benefits to going out in the sun, such as making enough vitamin D. “This study is about finding that balance, so we can offer people of all skin colours the

best possible advice about how much sun is safe for them.” Seventy-five healthy volunteers, aged 18-45 and with a range of skin colours, are being recruited to take part in the study at the Photobiology Unit, Dermatology Centre at Salford Royal in Greater Manchester. Those taking part will be exposed to simulated sunlight - equivalent to that of a summer’s day in Manchester - for short periods. Blood and urine samples will be taken after exposure and examined for chemicals which indicate vitamin D levels and DNA damage.

Small skin samples will also be taken from some volunteers and analysed for any signs of DNA damage. Kalani Hargrove, one of the first volunteers to take part in the trial, is studying sociology at the university. “Before I signed up, I was given an information sheet that explained everything,” she said. “Taking part has been really simple and straightforward so far. “And it has been fascinating to see, first-hand, how medical research is carried out. “I’m delighted to be taking part in research which will, hopefully, lead to a better understanding of how people of all skin colours can enjoy the sun safely.”

IKEA to build 100 hotels … but they’re definitely not flat-packs! IKEA, the world’s largest homes retailer, is planning to build 100 budget hotels across Europe - but they won’t include their famous flat-pack furniture. The hotels, aimed at priceconscious business travellers, will not feature IKEA’s brand name, yet they represent the Swedish company’s biggest real estate development. Demand for stylish-yetaffordable rooms from austerity-hit business guests and leisure travellers is high and growing.

That’s the view of Harald Muller, senior executive at the property unit of Inter IKEA, the firm which owns the IKEA brand and concept, who adds: “Budget-designer hotels is the fastest-developing hotel segment.” Motel One, citizenM and B&B Hotels are all part of a new breed challenging established budget brands such as Travelodge, Whitbread’s Premier Inn (WTB.L) and Accor’s Formule 1 (ACCP.PA). IKEA’s first hotel will probably open in Germany in 2014, and the chain will be run by an international hotel operator.

“There is no IKEA furniture in it,” stressed Muller “It is not an IKEA hotel. It’s a continuation of our normal investment activities in real estate.” Inter IKEA already owns a few hotels and has more in the works, but the new project would be its first chain. And it will top its 26acre home, office and hotel scheme around London’s

Olympic Park. The company is identifying and buying sites for future hotels in the chain, which will be launched in Belgium, Austria, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Britain and Poland. Inter IKEA’s property assets total around 750 million euros, and it has the financial clout to become a larger developer. In its fiscal 2010-11 year, IKEA Group, which operates most IKEA stores under franchise from Inter IKEA, raised net profit by 10% to a record 2.97 billion euros on revenues of 25.17 billion euros, which was another all-time high.

We celebrated our £148m win with a takeaway pizza THE Suffolk couple who won £148.6m on the EuroMillions last Friday had scraped by for years to make ends meet. And the first thing Adrian and Gillian Bayford did on learning of their mindboggling windfall was to celebrate with a takeaway pizza! Adrian, who runs his own music store, and 40-yearold Gillian, a nurse, won the second-biggest fortune in British lottery history. Yet they had no idea of their riches for 24 hours. The couple, from Haverhill, have already decided to share their fortune with those close to them and, said Adrian: “Those who need it especially children’s charities.” When they attempted to explain how much money they had won to their children, Cameron, four, and Amy, six, their daughter simply asked: “Have we

earned enough money to go to Domino’s pizza for tea?” The somewhat shellshocked parents, who felt it would have been impossible to keep their win a secret, were unveiled as jackpot winners at a luxury hotel in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. Adrian said he had been watching the heist film The Bank Job on TV while Gillian was out. When she returned, they flicked over to the news and discovered the EuroMillions winner was from Britain. He added: “Scrolling along the bottom of the screen was the news that one person had won EuroMillions, but Gillian confessed that she had been too busy to buy a ticket. “As a joke, I also said I hadn’t either, when, in fact, I had five lines upstairs waiting to be checked. “By now, our children had woken up, so while Gillian was trying to settle them back to sleep, I went to check the numbers on my phone. “Gradually, the numbers

17 August - 23 August 2012

seemed to match up with those on my ticket, and I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I rushed back and turned on the main light,

at which point Gillian went ballistic.” Gillian said: “Neither of us can quite comprehend just how much £148 million is.

We have always worked and saved up for holidays, or things that we need. “We have lived within our means and been comfortable,

but we have been like ships in the night to earn the income we needed.” The couple, who live in a modern four-bedroom, detached house, now plan to search for their dream home. Mrs Bayford, who works nights as a children’s healthcare assistant at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, said she would consider giving up work, but only to spend more time with her family. Adrian’s music store, his labour of love for 17 years was closed on Tuesday. But it was open for business as usual the following day. Family friend Brian Wilson said: “I’ve known Adrian since he opened the shop and I use to sit in there with him and chat when it was quiet. “He’s a top bloke and he has a wonderful family. It couldn’t have happened to more down-to-earth people. “They are just a normal, everyday family and it’s nice to see honest, hard-working people have a stroke of luck.”

Branson company loses A Desperate time for Dan its rail franchise after a ...and Korky! 15-year success venture VIRGIN RAIL, Sir Richard Branson’s train company has lost its West Coast mainline rail franchise, which has sparked a wave of protests. The British Government’s decision to give Transport giant FirstGroup the 14-year franchise battle to run the London to Scotland line on Wednesday spells heartache for Sir Richard. His Virgin trains have operating the line for 15 years, introducing tilting, high-speed, Pendolino trains serving Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow. From carrying some 13 million passengers a year when Virgin began its West Coast train journey, the annual total is now around 31 million. A sorrowful Sir Richard said in a statement: “The decision

is extremely disappointing for Virgin and for our staff, who have worked so hard to transform this railway over the last 15 years.” He admitted that cuts in quality and fare rises would have been inevitable had Virgin’s bid been any higher - and he did not want to risk bankruptcy by over-bidding. The Virgin maestro, who co-owns Virgin Rail with Stagecoach, added: “Sadly, the Government has chosen to take that risk with FirstGroup. “We only hope they will continue to drive dramatic improvements on this line for years to come without letting everybody down.” Sir Richard criticised the Government harshly, saying: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. When will the Department for Transport learn?” FirstGroup already

17 August - 23 August 2012

operates a number of rail routes, including Great Western and ScotRail. The company is believed to have topped Virgin’s £4.8bn bid on West Coast by £0.7bn. Chief Executive Tim O’Toole said: “We are delighted to be selected to operate this unique railway, which connects communities across the country and plays a vital role in the UK’s economic growth. “We will be making significant improvements, including reduced journey times and introducing new, direct services. “In support of our commitment to generate increased passenger growth, we will be reducing Standard Anytime fares by 15% on average.” Following the news, however, FirstGroup’s share price dropped by 5.5% in early-morning trading. Transport unions have already warned that a

change of ownership could mean higher fares, poorer services and job cuts. Bob Crow, General Secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), was on the warpath immediately, saying: “We will mount a massive industrial, political and public campaign to stop any attacks on our members’ jobs and the services that they provide to the travelling public.” Simon Weller, national officer of train drivers’ union Aslef, said: “The Government is always seduced by the big buck, but any savings on the franchise will have to come by cutting staffing or introducing higher fares.” But Rail Minister Theresa Villiers said: “All franchise bids are judged on their affordability, deliverability and their value for money for passengers and the taxpayer.”

THINGS are really getting desperate for The Dandy, the comic which has regaled generations with tales of Desperate Dan and Korky the Cat.

Since its weekly launch in 1937, circulation figures rose to two million at one point,. but today’s sales have slumped to around the 8,000 mark. Various re-launches of the magazine in recent years failed to halt the drop in sales and publishers DC Thomson believe the future of The Dandy’s best-known characters may now be on the internet. Now, a campaign has been launched to save the comic, with Scottish comedian Robert Florence issuing a rallying call. “Let’s all buy The Dandy this week,” he said, “Let’s see if we can save something worth saving.”

Comic historian Paul Gravett also expressed regret, but added: “It’s a question of whether kids still want comics? Perhaps it hasn’t moved enough with the times.” The Dundee-based publishers said in a statement: “We’re celebrating the fact that The Dandy has been in print for 75 years and we’ve a lot of planning to do to ensure that our brands and characters can live on in other platforms for future generations to enjoy.” A bronze statue of Desperate Dan stands in Dundee city centre, alongside Minnie the Minx, from The Dandy’s sister title, The Beano.

MARIANO E ZUNINO SIRI Understanding the Law

Email: marianozunino@canarianweekly.com

FOLLOWING on from my last column concerning home-buying in Tenerife, here is a continuation of the A-Z guide to understanding the laws. CANCELACIÓN: (cancellation, payment): Cancellation of the mortgage because of the nonpayment of the debt. CAPITAL: Sum equivalent to the main mortgage loan. It is the total of the amount borrowed without including interest. CARGAS: (charges) limitation to the dominium (ownership of a property. They are stated in public documents and registered at the Land Registry. For example: mortgage, usufruct. CATASTRO: Official registry of plots. Every plot has a cadastral number used to charge the IBI (see below) and the Cadastral Office deals with this record. Do not confuse it with the Land Registry which is the official registry where the ownership and charges of any plot are recorded. CEDULA DE HABITABILIDAD: Document released by the Administration to control the health and hygiene of accommodation buildings. It is a necessary document to contract electricity and water. CERTIFICACIÓN REGISTRAL: (Land Registry Certificate) Document issued by the Land Registry

Page 16

The A-Z of laws

that states the legal situation of the property. It contains a description of the plot, says who owns it and whether there are charges or not. CLAUSULA ABUSIVA: Clauses in a contract which are unfair (they do not show equal balance between both parties).They do not show an equal balance in the terms of the contract between buyer and seller. These types of clauses are generally used in “consumer contracts”. COMISIÓN DE APERTURA (commission or bank fee): Sum paid at the time of signing a mortgage loan as payment of the administrative costs of the bank. It is paid once in the life of the loan and is a percentage of the total amount of the loan. COMISION DE SUBROGACION (loan’s subrogation fee): Percentage to be applied on the pending loan capital if the debtor changes his bank to improve the loan’s conditions. CUOTA (instalment): In a bank loan, the “cuota” is the instalment you have to pay (monthly, including capital and interests. Remem-

ber that in the Community of Owners, the “cuota” is the percentage you have within the complex. DIVISIÓN HORIZONTAL: The Horizontal Division Deed (Deed of Condominium) is a Public Deed which describes the building, its divisions, common areas, percentage of quota of every plot, etc. It is used in cases where there is a building with many owners (each one with a percentage of the whole building). ESCRITURA: Public document signed and authorised by a public notary, who witnesses its contents. The Deed of Purchase of Property normally has: name of people who attend the notary (including translator, attorneys); description of property; Title of the previous owner; value of property; charges if any; payment of community fees; price and way of payment. The notary releases a “first copy” or “primera copia”to the purchaser to register it at the Land Registry. GARANTÍA PERSONAL (personal guarantee): Guarantee that the debtor gives with his present and future personal assets to secure

the fulfilment of the obligation. In some cases, the personal guarantee is give by a third person (who is not the debtor). GASTOS (costs): this word is included in all transactions. Every time you buy anything, there are “gastos”. This would be “gastos de gestión”, “gastos de notario” and a long list. GASTOS DE GESTIÓN: Those originated in notary fees, land registry fees, tax payments, etc. GASTOS DE REGISTRO (Land Registry fees): Charged by the Land Registry to record the Title Deed of Purchase and Title Deed of Mortgage. HIPOTECA (mortgage): Although I have written an article related to mortgages, it is useful to remind you that it is a “real estate right of guarantee”, which means that the immovables are subject to the fulfilment of an obligation. In case of being in breach with the obligation, the assets involved could be executed and sold in an auction. IMPUESTO SOBRE BIENES INMUEBLES (IBI): Previously known as “Contribución Urbana”, IBI is a

Town Hall tax charged annually on the property, according to the Cadastral value of the property. The Cadastral value is the one given by the Authority. IMPUESTO SOBRE eL INCREMENTO DEL VALOR DE LOS TERRENOS: A local Town Hall Tax to be paid after the purchase. IMPUESTO DE TRANSMISIONES PATRIMONIALES Y ACTOS JURÍDICOS DOCUMENTADOS: Transfer Tax and Stamp Duty. LIBRE DE CARGAS: Free of charges. At the time of buying a property, it is imperative to be sure that you are buying it free of debts (free of mortgage, free of attachments, updated in the payment of Community of Owners fees, etc.). This is confirmed by the Land Registry through the Nota Simple (see below). NOTA SIMPLE REGISTRAL: Document (record) issued by the Land Registry that states the ownership, charges of a certain property (“finca”). It gives a summary of the history of the plot or property. It helps the purchaser to have information about the property he/she is going to buy (although the no-

tary would also check that before signing the Escritura). NOVACIÓN: A renewal of contract. Normally, this word is used when you renegotiate a mortgage with the bank. REGISTRO DE LA PROPIEDAD: Land Registry or Registry of Property is the registry where the “history” of a plot and its description is recorded (description, ownership, charges, etc.). TITULO CONSTITUTIVO: Horizontal Division Deed (see above). VICIOS OCULTOS: Hidden defects or faults which appear in the property after purchasing. It was not possible to be detected at that time as it was hidden (“oculto”). If they appear before a certain deadline (10 years, three years, one year, depending on the cases) it gives the right to the purchaser to enforce costs on the vendor to cover necessary repairs to the property. The building law states that those ones which intervene in the edification process are liable for these damages. To guarantee eventual payments of indemnities, there is an obligatory insurance policy to cover such damages (“seguro de caución”). - Mariano Zunino Siri is a lawyer registered in Tenerife Bar Association since 1991.

K9’s red-hot Open Day K9 News

WITH temperatures hitting what felt like 100 degrees, most sensible people will have been either indoors or at the beach! Fortunately many supporters braved the elements for K9’s Open Day on Sunday and took time to browse or spend on the stalls and tombola. Even the wet-nosed brigade, who love any excuse for a walk, were content to remain in the shade of their kennels, enjoying a siesta. Most of them were pleased

to see several supporters taking an interest in their welfare, while a few carried on sleeping and dreaming of chasing rabbits. The 412 euros raised is the equivalent of a month’s supply of animal food, which is so worthwhile. Thanks to those who attended, and special mention and gratitude to those members and friends who manned the stalls and the other tasks involved on the day. Next up is a small event at the South Beach Bar in Puerto Colon (next door to Subway) on Sunday (26th Aug). Come along from 2.30pm, chill out and listen to some Sinatra-type sounds. More info from Kay on 626 759 007.

Reward offered for precious cross

Bomberos bonanza, thanks to the raffle donors - and a hint of magic THE fund-raiser for Tenerife’s voluntary fire-fighters (Volunteer Bomberos), who lost valuable equipment in last month’s fires, proved a spectacular success. It was held at Roy’s Pizza and Indian Tandoori Restaurant, in San Eugenio Alto, on Saturday and proved lucrative, helping to lift the overall total to over 2,400 euros - with more to come! Thanks go to Roy for the use of his premises, plus Mike Byatt, Tony Blackburn and Dee Daniels (who took over the raffle), along with all the businesses and general public, who donated 67 prizes

A “SUBSTANTIAL” reward has been offered for a unique cross with a diamond centre, which was either lost or stolen in Playa de Las Americas. The cross has immense sentimental value to the owner because it was designed from his late wife’s engagement ring.

It went missing near the Sol Tenerife Hotel, in the Veronicas area, a fortnight ago. The owner, who does not wish to be named,” said: “It is so precious to me for obvious reasons, and I am offering a substantial reward for its return.” If anyone offers to sell you this cross, or has done so already, please contact Annette Bolger at the Devon Arms (0034) 660 950 592.

Luis the Lion’s big night THE Lions Club of Arona, Las Galletas and Costa del Silencio will celebrate the election of new President Luis Salas on Saturday, 8th September. President’s Night takes place at Westhaven Bay, Silencio, (7 for 7.30pm) and is a sit-down dinner with table wine, costing 25 euros per person. Popular singer Cy

Benson hosts an entertaining evening with various artistes, and there will be a grand raffle featuring prizes galore. It’s a formal family night out, with smart evening dress. Tickets can be bought from the Costa del Silencio Lions’ charity shop, opposite Coral Mar Square, via your personal contacts, or phone 676 575 911

for the raffle. System X (Dee and Darren) opened the show, and other artists included Holly Bourne, Mister Sister. The Gleeks, Leslie Presley, magician Joe Guillan, and Simon King.

Cabildo President Ricardo Melchior should have opened the event but was unable to attend because the latest forest fires were getting out of control. But British consul

Maria Leng proved an able deputy, performing the official opening in English and Spanish. And she was amazed at all the support provided by ex-pats.

Pure theatre as Gillian Banks’ charity girls raise 3,000 euros FOR the second year running, the talented Gillian Banks Theatre School students created a huge impression during their week here. The pupils, from Maltby, Yorkshire, work so hard for local charities because their patron is local entertainer Nick Page, who often performs at the School’s UK-based charity events. This year’s venues were The Palms, Golf del Sur; The Harbour Club, Los Gigantes; and the Theatre Bar, San Eugenio. And again, unsuspecting guests were thrilled by the production, which featured

many costume changes, singing, dancing – and a display of pure, raw, talent. The students also performed at the Anthelia Gran Hotel in Torviscas as part

of the criteria for EU funding. Their contact was Denise Bell, at Viana Shows, to whom they are extremely grateful for her help and support. A total of 3,000-plus euros

was raised for local charities. They all offer heartfelt thanks to Gillian, Martin and all the wonderful entertainers in their school. And they’ll be back next year!

Accion del Sol News

Arico Five pointers to Live PRESS RELEASE adopting a dog THE LAST few months have been very difficult for everyone. The refuge at Atogo was closed due to the lack of proper licenses and failing various assessments, and this has meant a new home for the dogs in Fasnia.

IT has been a relatively quiet week on the doggie front, so Accion del Sol staff have issued their five main benefits of adopting a dog from the refuge.

1. You will be giving a dog a new chance of a home and greatly increasing its quality of life. Many animals spend a lot of time in the refuge waiting for a new home, and many of the older and bigger dogs get passed by. But they make equally good, loving pets. 2. Every dog taken from Accion del Sol is castrated, vaccinated , micro-chipped, passported and given a clean bill of health by the resident vet. 3. You won’t be supporting puppy farms - many puppies sold are mass bred, purely for business. 4. Accion has dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds and ages , so there is bound to be a dog suitable for your needs. 5. You will enjoy the great satisfaction knowing that you have helped one of the many dogs at the refuge, while at the same time supporting a healthy, cause. Adopting a pet has lifelong benefits which you will not regret. In return your dog will give you unconditional love - and a friend forever. Please call 922 778 630 if you want to learn more about the refuge, or if you would like to help out in any way. Towels and blankets are always needed for the dogs if you have any to spare. The refuge is situated at Poligono De Industrial Estate, Granadilla, Exit 51 on the TF1, directly next to ITER, the Parque Eolica, where the windmills are, and is open to the public Monday-Friday, from 3-6pm. If you are interested in adopting a dog or maybe just taking a dog or two for a leisurely walk don to the beach, then do drop in, or contact the above number.

17 August - 23 August 2012

Live Arico founder member and primary carer of the dogs Eugenio Da Mommio has resigned, following alleged issues at the refuge, and we cannot comment further at this time. Linda Smethhurst (arranging flight for dogs travelling abroad) and myself, Siobhan Ferguson (working in the charity shop), were not on the committee at the time of the alleged incident. We have taken on the running of the Association at present. A new committee is in the process of being formed. Many people have asked why we have not closed the Association down, which would have been the easiest thing to do, however there are a few reasons. Live Arico has, over the years accumulated debts, owed predominately to two small local businesses; we will endeavour to clear this debt as a matter of decency and moral obligation. We understand the massive challenge that now faces Refugio Fasnia in financing the new shelter. The City Council has designated the FECAPAP to manage the refuge, they will be responsible for the daily care and medical needs, adoptions and neutering. If you would like to donate or give practical help, please contact the centre directly. We wish Adriana Naranjo and the team of old and new volunteers every success with Refugio Fasnia. For all adoptions, please call Heidi on 682 517045. The priority, as always is to get the dogs a permanent loving home. Heidi speaks Spanish, English and German and awaits your call. We will continue to fundraise for all animal welfare organisations as an

independent association, and, with continued support, shall be donating funds on a regular basis. The information of what we have donated to the various groups will be posted on the Facebook wall, the local forums and in the local press. Since July 23rd Live Arico has donated 400 euros in cash, and paid 200 euros on 26th July for food, 300 euros on 30th July for food and 300 euros on 6th August for food to the Fasnia Refuge. We would like to thank the volunteers in the shops who have shown great commitment to the welfare of the dogs and continued to raise money, despite the controversy surrounding them. The association in the past has re-homed many hundreds of dogs, but big changes are underway and part of this is a change of aims and objectives. Live Arico will no longer accept stray or abandoned dogs. The new committee’s aim is to ‘provide economic and non economic help and assistance to animal welfare groups in Tenerife’. This will take various forms including financial assistance as stated above, neutering programmes and vaccination programmes. Further details will be released soon. We take this opportunity of thanking the many supporters and friends who over the years have enabled thousands of dogs to be re-homed. Special thanks to Sue Havenhand, who has resigned as President to take a well earned rest. Her energy and commitment over her years of fundraising has helped to raise hundreds of thousands of euros for the abandoned dogs of this island. Our thanks will never be enough. Now we look forward to the future, which may soon mean a new name, and with your help and continued support, we hope we can make a real difference. Don’t forget if you have any unwanted goods we would love you to donate them to any of the shops so we can continue to assist the various organisations here in Tenerife.

THE RESIDENTS'

CHOICE!

W C CHOICE

The X Factor 2012 Saturday 18th August, 20.00 It’s that time of year again; the biggest entertainment show of the year is back with an action packed ninth series. Judges Gary Barlow, Tulisa and Louis Walsh are joined by multi-million selling artist Nicole Scherzinger in their search for the nation’s next singing sensation on The X Factor. Dermot O’Leary is at the helm, he said, “We’re back and we are going to be better than ever. We’re the country’s number one singing show and we want to keep it that way!” This year’s incredible talent has bowled the Judges over and, as a result, they have decided to raise the age limit of the Overs category from 25 to 28. Gary explained, “This year the level of talent has been amazing. In particular, there was an overwhelming amount of amazing singers in the ‘Overs’ category, so we have raised the age limit of that category to spread the talent around and to increase the competition in the boys and girls categories.” They’ve been to six major cities in their search and this week’s show sees The X Factor juggernaut roll into London, Cardiff and Manchester. Before Nicole became a permanent Judge, Guest Judges joined the panel and this week, Mel B spices up the panel in Manchester. In an exciting first for the series, everyone aged 16 and above can enter whether they are an amateur artist, have had a management deal in the past or have one now and the Judges have seen it all - from people who write their own music and songs to those who should stick to karaoke or maybe not sing at all! With more talent, tears, tantrums, strops, divas and excitement than ever before. The X Factor 2012 returns to find out, whose time is now?

In a country where over 70,000 people lose their lives to the disease every year the pressure is on to draw in the crowds and leave the audience with a lifechanging message.

The remaining celebrities must cook a faultless two-course meal, judged not only by John Torode and Gregg Wallace but also by two past Celebrity MasterChef champions: England Rugby captain Phil Vickery, actress Lisa Faulkner and previous finalist Andi Peters, who know exactly what standards they expect. With their last chances to impress their way to the next round, emotions in the kitchen are running high and the pressure proves too much for some contestants. The celebrity judges deliver some frank and cutting responses to some dishes, but others fare much better. Only the best can go through to the final eight and take a step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2012. For those who don't make the grade, the journey ends here.

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas BBC2, 21:00 The tale of an unlikely friendship between Bruno, the son of a Nazi commandant, and Shmuel, a Jewish boy held captive in a concentration camp. Though the two are separated physically by a barbed-wire fence, their friendship grows and their lives become inescapably intertwined. Based on the best-selling book by John Boyne.

Don’t Blow The Inheritance ITV1, 17.00 Don’t Blow the Inheritance is a brand new quiz show coming soon to ITV1 daytime. Presented by actor, writer and comedian Tim Vine, Don’t Blow the Inheritance sees couples made up of two generations of the same family compete to win thousands of pounds but only as long as the kids don’t blow it all at the end of the show. In each programme, four pairs of contestants – each made up of one parent or grandparent, and their child or grandchild (all over 18) - battle it out to build up an ‘inheritance’ cash prize. Over three different knockout rounds the senior players compete to be the last one standing so they can pass on the prize - and the pressure - to the next generation. Each round is different but they all have one thing in common: the parents, much like in life, have to do all the hard work. The younger generation do have a role to play too as they must make important decisions based on how well they know their elders. The final round is a tense, time-ticking end game as the lucky youngster whose parent or grandparent has banked the most money gets to walk away with thousands of pounds – but only if they don’t blow all mum, dad or Grannie’s hard earned cash!

Dominic Littlewood looks at the work of fraud investigators who bring benefit thieves to justice, and meets the genuine claimants who deserve government help. Looking after a disabled husband and three disabled children is no easy task, so 45-year-old Jayne has been getting a helping hand from the taxpayer in the form of tax credits. But the bill is mounting, and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs investigators are suspicious. They are right to be suspicious, as Jayne's imagination seems to have run away with her to the tune of over a hundred grand. And Dom meets Chris, who lost his sight in a random brutal attack. Putting his life back together is no easy task, but help is at hand.

Waterloo Road BBC 1, 20.00

As the new Waterloo Road school opens in Scotland headteacher Michael Byrne has his work cut out dealing with a couple of runaway teens and a burgeoning rivalry with a local headmaster. On the run from a foster home, teenager Jade shares a squat with her controlling boyfriend Drew but dreams of a better life. She announces that she’s going to school at Waterloo Road and despite his fear the authorities will find out about them, Drew is persuaded to enroll too. Michael and Sian arrive at the new Waterloo Road. The local press reaction to the school has been largely positive, except one story reporting discontent from Gerard Findlay, headmaster of rival school Havelock High, who claims Waterloo Road are stealing his pupils. The school is buzzing as Jade and Drew arrive. Despite not being registered at Waterloo Road Drew uses his charisma to win Lorraine over - but it’s not long before Tom sees an angry side to the new boy. When Michael offers Jade, but not Drew, accommodation in the school house, Drew reacts angrily, forcing his girlfriend to reveal a secret which will have far-reaching consequences for the pair. In the staffroom, new teachers Christine Mulgrew and Audrey McFall introduce themselves to Waterloo Road’s familiar faces. Not everyone is enthusiastic about the new school and Tom bemoans Michael’s regime. But English teacher Christine doesn’t seem keen to be drawn into any staff discussions, keeping herself to herself. It’s only when Grantly suggests the teaching team go for a drink after school that Christine’s interest is spiked. Elsewhere, Tariq struggles to adjust to his new life as a paraplegic and Rhiannon starts a bullying campaign against Scout.

Customers are misled on contracts for their ‘fixed’ mobile phones IN the UK, mystery shopping carried out by Which? shows sales staff giving inaccurate information about the possibility of price increases. New undercover research carried out by Which? revealed that the vast majority (82%) of staff in mobile phone shops visited gave incorrect information about potential price rises on ‘fixed’ phone contracts at the point of sale. Astonishingly, 82% of shop assistants maintained that the price was fixed even when asked if it would stay the same throughout the length of the contract. All shop assistants, when prompted, claimed that the features will stay the same throughout the contract.

Which? recently launched the ‘Fixed Means Fixed’ campaign, which has already received almost 20,000 pledges of support from consumers, calling on phone companies to ensure that the price, and all aspects of fixed deals, remain the same for the full length of mobile phone contracts. In the past year, four out of

the five main phone operators have taken advantage of a hidden clause that allows them to increase prices on contracts that appear to be ‘fixed’, a practice potentially netting the industry up to £90m in a year. Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, says: “It’s totally unacceptable that people aren’t being told the full

story about potential price rises when signing up to contracts in mobile phone shops. Shockingly, even when we asked directly about price increases, the vast majority of staff denied this could happen. “There should be no nasty surprises after signing a mobile contract. People must be confident that fixed really does mean fixed.” Recent Which? research found that 70% of people on fixed contracts did not know that mobile phone companies could increase prices during the length of their contract. The Which? Fixed Means Fixed campaign is calling on operators to advertise upfront the possibility of price rises and, if prices do increase, to allow people to switch contracts without penalty. Which? has also complained to the regulator, Ofcom.

Retail sales rise A JUMP in high street spending has fuelled suspicions that the UK’s economic plight is not as bad as had been made out. Retail sales figures just released show some surprise growth in July, and an upwardly revised performance for June could help boost GDP when the next estimates for the second quarter are announced. Following similar significant revisions for construction and manufacturing output, it has emerged that retail sales growth for June was estimated at 0.8% by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in its latest report. It had originally reported growth of just 0.1% for the month. UK GDP was found by the ONS to have contracted by 0.7% between April and June in its first estimate which means that a combined improvement from retail, construction and manufacturing could lead to an improvement in the next GDP estimate. In its retail sales report for July, sale volumes were found to have increased by 0.3% on a monthly, seasonally adjusted basis when economists had predicted a contraction of 0.1%.

A glut of promotions on petrol and high levels of discounting on the high street were mostly responsible, the ONS said. Shops had hoped that the start of the London Olympics would provide a boost to the service sector, which makes up 75% of the UK economy. But the ONS said that firms had reported no broad-based impact from the first two days of the Games covered by its report. In a separate study, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) had found slowing sales growth during July. It said that a sunny spell towards the end of the month had failed to make up for weeks of rain which had depressed sales of summer goods. Inflation figures for July had pointed to an end to the heavy discounting which began in June when the country suffered record rainfall. Higher inflation - driven mostly by soaring oil costs - has damaged consumer spending power though the Bank of England expects the headline figure to reach its 2% target by the year’s end - closely resembling wage increases for the first time in years.

How Utopians found a legal way around the lettings law Continuing last week’s exciting story of Utopia Island, and how owners found a way round their intransigent government. By John Hatrick Technically, any rentals to tourists on complexes defying government laws became “illegal” overnight. However, the reality was that Utopia Island was entirely dependent on its tourist industry and was not going to shut its doors to business simply because an undemocratic law had been forced through to its ridiculous conclusion. The result was that everyone, including the previous sole agents, continued operating their businesses and renting their apartments to tourists. An estimated 40% of apartment owners had been renting illegally for the past decade. Now the other 60% had no financial choice but to join them. Unsurprisingly, the former sole agents were soon among those shouting the loudest for a change in the law. Even the hotel groups, who had previously rubbed their hands together in glee as they watched their self-catering “competition”

Page 38

struggle, began to realise that the situation was now threatening the reputation and livelihood of every island business, including their own. Despite their increased activity over the past two years, the tourist inspectors on Utopia Island had managed to denounce only a small fraction of all illegal renters. Furthermore, of those who had been denounced, the majority had instructed one of Utopia’s lawyers to challenge or appeal the fines. The tourist inspectors were facing a mountain of legal challenges - not to mention a substantial number of personal denuncias against the inspectors. They had been issued by disgruntled individuals and businesses, who had taken umbrage at the heavyhanded behaviour of the inspectors during inspection visits, or perhaps who figured that a denuncia was a good way to bog the tourist office down with bureaucracy and play them at their own game. The citizens of Utopia Island soon realised that the tourist inspectors had neither the time, resources

nor motivation to denounce every tourist apartment owner in Utopia. By that point, all the owners had been educated to legally challenge any denuncia they did receive. Lawyers who were genuinely concerned at the problem began to offer to defend denuncias at reduced fees, with instalment payments. The courts faced a backlog of thousands of denuncias and appeals. In most courts in Utopia, there was already a two-month delay in having a new claim issued and presented. That time period suddenly quadrupled overnight, thereby blocking access to justice for other court claimants who had real legal problems to resolve. While the legal system ground to a halt, pressure was stepped up on the government. At a time when Utopia Island was trying to publicly attract tourists to the island, the government grew increasingly weary at the constant humiliation on every TV channel and in every newspaper, tourist publication and trade

magazine on the entire continent. Such headlines as Welcome to Utopia, the only holiday destination in the world where renting to tourists is illegal served only to make matters worse for them The government was also humiliated by the fact that their tax revenue from declared renting of tourist apartments began to plummet overnight, as few owners were willing to risk advertising the fact that they were now renting illegally. Other forms of protest began to escalate, and support grew among other groups in Utopia. Tourist inspectors began to receive a hostile reception each time they had the audacity to turn up on a complex and throw their weight around. Utopia taxi drivers, known to pack a political punch when the mood seized them, were perfectly placed to support the protest. Before long, various groups were staging public protests at the airports and outside prominent government buildings. Given that their jobs and businesses were largely

dependent upon tourists staying in self-catering accommodation, they were no longer prepared to stand by while the government took food out of their mouths. Within weeks,the government began to cave in from the constant pressure and humiliation. A government committee was formed to review the law and meet with heads of key sectors in order to gauge public opinion democratically. The committee soon recommended to the government of Utopia that the law be replaced by a system of compulsory registration, whereby individual owners were required to register their properties with the tourist board. They also had to comply with certain rules and regulations, and submit their apartments to periodic and random inspections. The committee noted that similar systems were in place in most tourist resorts around the planet and, for the most part, ran without a hitch. Government officials were soon rubbing their hands together as all property owners were forced to

register their property and pay a reasonable registration fee. Almost overnight, tax revenues on declared tourist rental income jumped from 10% to over 90%. Owners began to bombard the internet with rental websites, advertisements and promotions, advertising their properties in Utopia and stealing valuable market share from other tourist destinations with less to offer. Local businesses began to flourish as the tourist dollar began to flood back. Confidence returned to the property market as foreigners began to take advantage of huge property investment opportunities. Previously-suspended projects such as hospitals, trains, motorways, theme parks and live concerts were suddenly back on the agenda. And they all lived happily ever after. The above is an entirely fictional story. Whether such a scenario ever becomes reality in Tenerife is now up to you!

Getting to the root of your gardening problems! Email: David.hudgell@canarianweekly.com THE Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is calling on gardeners to watch out for the latest pest to appear in the UK. The beetle, Chrysolina coerulans or blue mint beetle, was confirmed to be breeding in the country by the charity’s entomology department when specimens were sent to them by an RHS member in Kent in July 2011. However, as there has only been one reported finding, the charity is keen to find out if this is an isolated situation and therefore controllable or if the insect is more widespread but not yet reported. By having more information the RHS will be in a better position to advise gardeners on the most effective measures to take. “The beetle is widespread on mainland Europe and the detection of breeding adults in the UK could mean problems for gardeners who grow this herb,” says Andrew Halstead, Principal Scientist Plant Health. “It is therefore important that we find out if there are any other breeding adults elsewhere in the UK. The adults and the black, softbodied larvae both eat the foliage.” The 7mm long blue mint beetle is quite different in colour to our native beetle, the green mint beetle (Chrysolina herbacea) which

A STUDY funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) at University College London (UCL) has discovered that a moderate increase in exercise when you retire can make big improvements on your heart health. In the study, over 4,000 people in the transition to retirement were quizzed on their exercise routines and had their levels of inflammation – which can lead to ‘furring’ of the arteries and heart disease in later life – measured

more extensive then it may be necessary to apply a pesticide. An organic insecticide, pyrethrum, can be used on mint to control pests. This short-persistence insecticide should deal with young larvae. However, it may not be effective to control the adults and so other insecticides, such as deltamethrin or lambdacyhalothrin, may have to be considered.”

The RHS would like gardeners to check their plants for holes in the leaves and search their mint plants for beetles. If blue beetles are discovered the charity would like either digital photographs taken and sent to advisory_entomology@ rhs.org.uk or live samples posted in stout containers to Advisory Service, RHS Garden Wisley, Woking, Surrey GU23 6QB.

Get gardening

BHF Senior Cardiac Nurse Maureen Talbot said: “Donning your gardening gloves, or picking up a paint brush, can still go a long way to help look after your heart health, as even gentle exercise can have a big impact on how well your heart ages. “This research highlights the positive impact changing your exercise habits can have on the future of your heart health – and that it’s never too late to re-energise your life. However it’s important not to wait until you retire to get off the couch, as being active for life is a great way to keep your heart healthy.”

is shiny, emerald-green. This beetle also eats mint leaves but is generally not a problem because it occurs more frequently on wild mint. “At the moment our control suggestions are the same both for our native green mint beetle and the new incomer,” says Andrew. “If there are only a few then removal of the beetle and larvae by hand works best. If the infestation is

This is great news for retirees who often indulge in gardening, countryside walks and gentle sports once they are no longer chained to their desks.

He said: “I play at my club twice a week and still compete in my local league. If I couldn’t play sport I don’t know what I‘d do. “The worst thing you could do when you retire is to sit down and watch telly all day. I keep busy with sports and my vegetable patch and it seems to be keeping me going well – doctors have told me I’ve got a great heart for my age.”

CARL PATTISON

DEAR CHRISTINE

from Robot, Los Cristianos answers your hair questions

Pump up the volume! I CAN’T count the times I have heard someone saying: “I’ve got fine hair so there’s not much you can do with it.” That is so untrue because, with the right cut and styling advice, fine hair can look just as good as a full mane of thick hair. It is all in the choice of style and cut - thinner hair should never be worn long, no matter if it suits the client that way. Keeping it longer will only make it look thinner, lack volume and, thus, giving the appearance of less hair. This type of hair should be worn shoulder-length or shorter - preferably shorter. Blunt fringes are also a nono as they take up too much of the thickness at the sides of the hair. But side-sweeping fringes, as in my example on the right, are perfect if you want to cover the forehead without taking away the volume. This style is short, but it still looks feminine and is so easy to look after. And it is versatile, too, as it can be swept in either direction and it is minimal styling. The second example is excellent if you want to wear your hair longer. This, I suggest, is the maximum length that finer hair should be worn. Any longer and it will look even thinner, as it is being dragged down by the extra length. Colouring finer hair also helps as this serves to rough

Page 40

up the texture, plumping up the hair to give it volume. There’s nothing worse than seeing limp, greasy hair that could look so much better with a little colour. Styling this type of hair is important, too, and you just can’t use any old products if you are expecting to see the best from your hair. Always use a lightweight shampoo and conditioner

so as not to overload the hair. A styling product can be in spray or mousse form to give it more volume. But do try to stay away from waxes or creamytype products as these will definitely weigh your hair down. A light gel spray to hold your style is fine for finishing off your look. But don’t overdo it as it can look “set”, and this can also make your hair appear finer. Last, but by no means least, try to be gentle when brushing and combing as this can snap and tear at the hair. And never rub-dry this type of hair as its fragile state can break off the hair. When looking for a new style, try not to go for the over-complicated. It may look good in the salon, but, if you can’t re-create it at home, then there’s no point asking for it. Go for simple but stylish and your finer hair will look just as good as the rest.

Your resident Agony Aunt Email: agony.aunt@canarianweekly.com Dear Christine, I’VE been in a two-year relationship with a man who is eight years younger than me. He lives with his mother, and that suits me because I have two young daughters at home. The trouble is, he’s only a barman so he never has either enough time or money to go out, and we just stay in at my place. I have now met a man my own age, who is very successful and of good financial standing. I know money is not everything but I’ve never had any and I’d be a liar if I said that I’m not enjoying being treated nicely. What can I do? Should I come clean to my younger man and tell him about the relationship I’m having with my older man? Or should I dump the two of them? LJ You need to get in touch with your feelings. Do you feel loved and supported by either of these men? Do you feel understood? Do you feel cared for? That one’s likely to be more problematic, since you know that, in financial terms, the younger man can’t care for you at the moment. But would he if he could? Does he show you in small ways that he’s caring in a practical sense? Is he content to stay a barman, or is he reasonably ambitious? Is he financially responsible, a sponger, a wastrel or a spendthrift? Is he a problemsolver or a moaner? It’s quite concerning that this younger man is happy to live apart from you and your family. Does that mean just for now, or for ever? Is that what you really want: a relationship with distance built into it, like a

safety zone? Or do you want someone who will be a father-figure for your daughters? Where do you want to be in a year’s time? In five years’ time? I think it’s quite telling that you think your alternatives are either informing the younger one or dumping both. Wouldn’t it make more sense to open up about your needs to each and see where they want their liaison with you to go? Once you have that information, you’ll feel less isolated and more able to judge whether either man is for you. And you won’t be paying either of them the discourtesy of having two separate relationships going on at the same time, which is likely to blow up in your face. I hope you’ll start gathering the information you need, and that includes listening to your feelings. Dear Christine, After I took early retirement last year, my wife and I moved to Tenerife. We used to be happy, but we’ve slowly grown apart. I thought a new life would bring us closer together, but this hasn’t happened. As always, she still doesn’t care for how I feel, and I am last in the queue for her attentions. She makes friends very easily and confides in them all the time. She also spends hours on the phone talking to family and friends in the UK. I try to tell her how unhappy I am, but she refuses to listen. Can you please help? Brian I’m sorry that you’re so unhappy, and that your wife won’t listen to you. In truth,

lots of people are reluctant to get into conversations that threaten to be long and draining, particularly if they feel the other person is full of complaints. Whatever is at the bottom of this, unless you begin to do something different, the situation isn’t likely to change. So instead of launching into a great flood of talk, why not start with a short, direct message? Pick an area that isn’t too confrontational and make a specific request. For example, you might say: “I love you and you’re very important to me. When you don’t kiss me hello like you used to, I feel very hurt. Are you willing to kiss me hello when I come home from work?” This should open negotiations, but you must be prepared for your wife to have requests of her own. Now let’s look at why you’ve been sidelined. It’s always possible that your wife feels you are not meeting her emotional needs, either. Perhaps she feels safer getting her needs met by others, or perhaps she feels that you don’t listen to or understand her. Acknowledging her feelings, even if only in small ways at first, such as saying: “You’re looking upset. Are you all right, love?” This could help you build bridges. I wish you all the best.

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

There are no hurdles to keeping oneself fit I KNOW I am one of the millions left enthralled by the magnificent achievements of all the Olympians. Even many those among us who may not have participated in sports are now inspired and, indeed, motivated by the sheer efforts and determination to succeed, displayed by the athletes. It is hoped that the legacy of the Games will be to encourage youngsters to take up new activities, not only so that new, rising stars can be spotted, but to

improve the health of future generations. But it doesn’t all end there. Age should be no barrier, either to re-inventing ourselves, or resurrecting any long-gone abilities we may have had, perhaps decades ago at school. During my school days, I was always mad keen on gymnastics lessons, and various other sports such as netball, tennis, rounders and lacrosse. Although a great deal of energy was required, I had never actually done running as an individual discipline. As I mentioned on this page, many months ago, I started jogging when I

enrolled for a military-style boot camp in 2010. I knew running would be on the agenda, and that I would have to get cracking in my preparation, so that I didn’t make too much of a fool of myself! As time has gone by, my interest hasn’t waned. I now belong to an athletics club at the Olympic Stadium in Playa de Las Americas, and thoroughly enjoy using the running track, even though the temperature can rise in the stadium to over 30 degrees. Buying my first pair of spikes, and doing sprint training in my mid-fifties, was a dream come true.

Let Eugeni work his magic on your nagging backache BACKACHE is bad enough, but anyone who has ever suffered sciatica will know just how painful it can be. That’s because Sciatica pain differs from other types of back problems in the way the pain is felt: it can be a dull ache or a shooting pain that radiates down the leg. The symptoms can also be translated as numbness or “pins and needles” and is commonly felt in the foot. The name sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve and

its branches - from your back down your buttock and down the back of each leg. Depending on the cause, the pain of acute sciatica - which is usually pretty uncomfortable to say the least - usually goes away on its own within a couple of months. But who wants to spend that length of time in agony? Treatment by a chiropractor is the most common solution - and a widely-accepted method advised by the medical professional. It restores misaligned vertebrae, and

helps reduce nerve irritation, inflammation, muscle spasms and control pain. And this is where Eugeni Evsikov comes in. He is a physiotherapist, a chiropractor and a masseur, and not for nothing is he known as the “man with the healing hands”. Eugeni has lived in Tenerife since 2002, working from his clinic in the Hotel Bitacora, in Playa de Las Américas. You can contact him on 699 156 147 for further details of his treatments, or to book an appointment.

Imagine my delight when the top athletes from many European countries started arriving at the club, from last October onwards, to cram in some warm-weather training. Many of them were going to be competing in the London Olympics, and it was incredible to see how much dedication these youngsters had to apply. It was quite an eye-opener to be able to see, in person, what a human body should look like! Even the girls had “six-packs”, and figures to die for. Being overtaken on the track by countless

numbers of superfit, young adults could have been very embarrassing, but I convinced myself it was real privilege to be in the company of these potential medal-winners. It is never too late to compete in your chosen discipline. Being new to athletics, I was amazed to discovered that the upper age-group for competitions was 100 years and above! Many people, who were very capable in their youth, may have fallen by the wayside. Perhaps they haven’t looked after themselves

over the years - and smoking, eating unhealthily and alcohol consumption may have taken their toll. This has left the way clear for others to excel in later life. Sport can offer a new beginning, whatever your age. Of course, there are those for whom it would be either very difficult or even impossible. So, instead of thinking that age is a barrier to realising your dreams, create a vision in your mind. With a lot of dedication, and unfailing belief in your ability, you may be extremely surprised at the outcome!

News bulletin from Mars… ONE national newspaper this week extolled chocolate or drinking cocoa as a way to beat dementia, or Alzheimer’s disease (the story wasn’t sure which).

By the way, the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia is that Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia, while

dementia is a symptom which can be caused by other disorders aside from Alzheimer’s.

Shame it forgot to mention that the research, conducted by a team of scientists in Italy, was sponsored by Mars!

The Great British Bake Off? THE foodie press is currently raving about the new returning series of the BAFTAwinning The Great British Bake Off. It sees that 12 the country’s best amateur bakers do

baking battle. Hosted by Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins, the bakers face three challenges each week, devised by judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. The first one hour episode is all about cake, and

the pressure is on from the very first challenge. The bakers tackle an upside-down cake for their signature bake. The feared technical challenge sees the bakers tackle Paul’s recipe for rum

IMPRESS your guests with this rumsoaked, retro classic.

Rum babas

You will need four 11cm/4½in baba tins (savarin moulds). Alternatively you can use small dariole moulds. Ingredients 220g/8oz strong flour 1 x 7g sachet fast action yeast ½ tsp salt 50g/2oz sugar, plus extra for lining tins 2 medium eggs 70ml/4½ tbsp milk 100g/3½oz butter, softened For the syrup 250g/9oz caster sugar 3-4 tbsp dark rum For the Chantilly cream 250ml/9fl oz double cream 100g/3½ oz icing sugar 1 vanilla pod, seeds only fresh fruit, for garnish Preparation method Place the flour in a large bowl. Place the yeast on one side of the bowl and the salt on the other side. (Make sure the salt is not placed on top of the yeast, as it can kill it, making it inactive). Add the sugar and stir everything together with a spoon until evenly mixed. Mix together the milk and eggs until well combined. Add three-quarters of the combined eggs and milk to the flour and stir to combine. Mix in the rest of the liquid and knead the dough on a worktop until it’s smooth and glossy, this will take approximately 10 minutes. Add in the softened butter and work it through the dough thoroughly until it’s silky and stretchy. This should take approximately six minutes. Place the dough back into a bowl and cover with cling film. Set the dough aside to rise for at least an hour, until doubled in size. Grease and sugar the four 11cm/4½in fluted rum baba tins (savarin moulds). (Adding the sugar will help the fragile sponges come out of the moulds). Turn the dough out of the bowl, and knock it back by kneading it a few times. Place the dough into a piping bag with a large plain nozzle. Pipe the dough into the four moulds. Try and get them all as equal as possible. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Allow to prove for a second time until the dough has

expanded almost to the top. Be careful not to over-prove at this stage, or you will get a muffin top around the edges. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile for the syrup, put the sugar and rum in a small saucepan with 200ml/7fl oz water and bring to a rolling boil. When the babas are cooked, take them out of the oven and allow to cool a little before carefully removing

the cakes from their tins. They will be very fragile. Place the babas onto a dish and pour over half the syrup. Allow them to soak up all of the liquid; then turn them over and repeat with the rest of the liquid. Transfer to the fridge to chill. Meanwhile for the Chantilly cream, whip the cream with the icing sugar and vanilla seeds. The cream must be firm enough to pipe and hold its shape on top of the babas. Transfer the cream to

babas, a hybrid of cake and enriched dough. It is an unusual and unfamiliar recipe that baffles some of the bakers. And to keep hold of their place in the bake off tent, the

bakers attempt to produce a show stopping cake that reveals a hidden design when it is sliced into.Who will impress the judges and become star baker and who will be the first to leave The Great British Bake

Travel Men are twice as likely to buy designer sunglasses than women When summer comes, cool sunglasses are undeniably one of the hottest accessories to have. However, while almost half (40%) of Brits say that stylish sunglasses make them feel fashionable, opinion is split on how much money should be spent on them. But it seems that men are more likely to want to stay ahead in the sunglasses fashion stakes. According to latest Mintel research, men are almost twice (20%) as likely as women (11%) to buy into designer sunglasses brands. Furthermore, men are also likely to be the biggest spenders within the category, as high quality is ranked as important by 42% of them - compared to 28% of women - and 31% say that it is worth paying more to get better quality sunglasses (vs 27% women). And it seems sunglasses are more than just another fashion accessory - as nearly one in five (19%) British men say that having designer sunglasses is a status symbol (compared to 15% women) and having a genuine brand is important to 22% of men (vs 17% of women). Tamara Sender, Senior Consumer Analyst at Mintel, said: “Men are more inclined than women to indulge themselves with designer sunglasses, likely because they do not tend to spend as much on other fashion accessories or jewellery.

www.canarianweekly.com

The shady truth Young women look for fun, trendy sunglasses which don’t cost a fortune as they are likely to be viewed as a short-term purchase that can both be changed regularly, and form part of a ’wardrobe’ of different styles to create different fashion looks, while men show a greater affinity for luxury brands. On average, the majority (54%) of consumers are only willing to spend £30 or less on a pair of sunglasses, but men are more drawn to the premium end of the market, with nearly one in ten (9%) of them ready to spend up to £100 for a pair of sunglasses - as opposed to 5% of women. In contrast, women tend to gravitate towards value end of the price spectrum, with four in ten (40%) only willing to spend under £15 on a pair of sunglasses, compared to less than three in ten (27%) of men. Moreover, when purchasing a new pair of sunglasses, men’s interest is not limited to appearance. Indeed, the purchasing of sunglasses to wear for sport is highest among men (11%) vs only 4% women. Also, other features, such as anti-glare lenses - suitable for driving for example - is valued by 30% of men (vs 25% of women). Meanwhile light-reaction lenses are of interest for around the same

Hike in air-fares spells a shock rise in inflation A STEEP increase in air fares, together with the finish of summer sales for clothing retailers, led to a surprise 0.2% rise in UK inflation last month. A fall in inflation is seen as a crucial ingredient for a recovery from the recession, yet it eased up to 2.6% in July, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). It was blamed mainly on a 21.7% rise in air fares in a month to signal the start of the holiday season - and the arrival of athletes from all over the world for the Olympic Games. The monthly drop in clothing and footwear prices was the smallest for the JuneJuly period since records began in 1996.

Traders began seasonal discounts early because of the record rainfall. Only last week, the Bank of England predicted CPI (Customer Price Inflation) would return to its 2% target by the end of the year, falling to 1.7% in two years. Governor Sir Mervyn King, at the launch of the Bank’s Inflation Report, spoke of his hopes that the squeeze on the consumer was just about over as price rises were more closely matched to wage increases. But TUC general secretary Brendan Barber called the new inflation figures a “body blow to workers”. He added: “Last week, the Bank said the UK economy would improve as real incomes started to grow. This news will knock back the recovery even further into the future.”

number of consumers (13% of men and 12% of women). Tamara adds: “Technologyled innovation has been particularly strong in the sports brands category, which is driven by features such as anti-glare, shatterproof, 100% UV filters and flexible frames, all of which add value, even before style and fashion have been taken into consideration. Sunglasses boasting the latest advancements in sunglasses technology that aid performance are likely to stimulate sales among sports enthusiasts. Sports

frames are most likely to benefit from the Olympic Games boost as people look to emulate the competing athletes and medal winners.” Overall, the value of the sunglasses market has tumbled over the last five years, declining by 24%, from £152 million in 2006 to £115 million in 2011. This negative growth has been fuelled by a drop in average selling price of sunglasses, as consumers rein in their discretionary spend in the current economic climate. However, Mintel estimates that the

market has grown by 3% in 2011 and that it will start to recover in 2012 to reach £140 million in 2016, almost returning to values seen in the pre-recessionary climes of 2007. And looking to the future, increasing consumer interest in health-related issues may translate into business opportunities for the industry. Mintel’s research reveals that over six in ten (62%) consumers, rising to twothirds of under-25s (65%), are motivated to purchase new sunglasses before going

on a holiday. However, while the majority is concerned about the health benefits of wearing sunglasses (53%), this falls to only four in ten (41%) among the under-25s. “There is scope for sunglasses – as with sunscreen – to be pitched as a health essential for everyday life rather than just a holiday must-have, with more information about the damage that the sun can have on people’s eyes in the long term and the impact of wearing sunglasses with inadequate UV protection.” Tamara concludes.

Ryanair’s pilots fuel a major row, which may lead to three-year ban RYANAIR is being investigated by Spanish authorities over why the company’s planes made three emergency landings last month. The incident has led to a denuncia against the Irish budget airline by Spanish Airport Authority AENA, which could prove costly. The probe is being carried out by Spain’s Public Works Ministry, through its State Agency for Security. Should irregularities be found, then Ryanair could lose its licence to fly in the country for up to three years - and be fined 4.5 million euros. It would be a serious blow because Spain is one of the airline’s most popular holiday destinations. Three pilots have been criticised by Ryanair management over the emergencies, having been forced to land in Valencia after running out of fuel. They were scheduled for Madrid’s Barajas airport, but were diverted to Valencia an hour’s flying time away - because of an electric storm. Even as they waited in the queue for the landing slot, the first of the three planes sent out a “mayday” to the control tower, allowing it to be given priority

to touch down immediately. The other two followed suit. Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said the planes’ fuel levels never fell below the allowed minimum, and that they landed “normally”. He added:“All of the Ryanair flights operate with the fuel levels required by Boeing and the European Aviation Safety Agency.” It means, however, that if any hitches crop up which lead to a plane covering a greater distance than planned, it will not have enough fuel to make the journey.

The amount of fuel a plane takes on before a flight is dependent on a number of factors, and is calculated by the pilot before the flight. Shane McKeon, deputy chief pilot and Ryanair’s Stansted base captain, said: “There are still a small number of pilots who seem to have a problem with company policy. “Some of the explanations given by pilots for filling up with excessive fuel are unacceptable. The most unreasonable excuse of all is that they like to land with three tonnes of fuel.” McKeon added:“This is not

Ryanair’s company policy; it is totally unacceptable and it is not what they are paid to do.” However, the question that needs answering for the Spanish aviation authorities is whether or not the company is looking to cut costs. Some suggest the Irish airline is doing so by carrying less fuel, which means less weight and lower consumption. If so, says the Official College of Commercial Aviation Pilots (COPAC), then the firm is putting economic considerations before safety.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel

Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

This Boxster really does earn Gold-medal status THE Boxster never needs a wholesale redesign and, true to form, its regular upgrade by Porsche keeps it feeling modern and fully competitive.

It is surely a must-have for aficionados of this sleek-looking, high-speed, eye-catching machine, which never looks out of place against any of our leading sports cars. This newish-look Boxster S is essentially a 911 with its engine set in the middle, which is where Dr. and Ferry Porsche intended it to be in the first place. Despite of a 2.3-inch-longer wheelbase and modest trackwidth bumps, it is 77lbs lighter than before, thanks to increased use of aluminium and magnesium. Length is up by the smallest fraction, the width remains and moving the windshield’s base

forward stretches legroom by an inch. The price starts at a reasonable £39,500, but it increases drastically when you dig into to the options list. The most notable chassis change is a switch from hydraulic to electric assistance for the rack-and-pinion steering. With the aim of improved ride and handling, the carry-over four-corner strut suspension benefits from an expert massage. Larger front brakes are shared with the 911; 19-inch

wheels are now standard, and the engineers have coaxed an extra five horsepower out of the direct-injected 3.4-litre flat-six. Compared with the dualclutch-automatic-equipped Boxster S that thumped archrivals in a comparison three years ago, the new stick-shift 2013 model is superior in every performance category except acceleration. The old and new Porsches cross the quarter-mile mark in a 12.9-second dead-heat, beyond which the new S waves

the oldie goodbye on its way to a top speed of 176mph. Despite this improved performance, the Boxster S’s disposition remains cheerful. The driver-to-controls interface is perfect, the shifter is smooth, and heel-and-toe pedal work is a doddle. Touch a button with the car moving at no more than 30 mph, and the lid folds in 10 seconds. It means that, with no structural shake and minimal wind ruckus at 100 mph, this convertible eliminates most excuses for buying a

coupe. The steering is quick to respond and perfectly weighted. Even with most of the road-surface bumpand-grind filtered out by the new electric power assist, the Boxster S’s steering wheel just isn’t the same. That’s because road feel, tiny vibrations, and tactility of the previous hydraulic steering system are gone, victims of a quest for refinement. And the electric power steering requires less work than it did before, thanks to lighter weight. True, it’s faithfully accurate, but at the same time it’s less involving. As is the brake pedal, which is easy to modulate when you slow for a bend below the ABS threshold. With 40 buttons adorning the console and centre stack, plus six steering-wheel switches, I suspect it’s rather like flying a plane because the Boxster S has a daunting array of functions.

They include gearshift assist, which flashes an orange beacon when engine rpm crowds the redline, allowing you to keep eyes on the road rather than the tach, and a four-way g-meter in the 10-function display which rates your every driving action. The quality of the interior’s plastic parts is impressive and makes the optional leather package seem unnecessary. New seats, borrowed from the 911, offer terrific lateral support and hours of comfort. Overall, what makes the new Boxster S one of Porsche’s greatest achievements is its all-encompassing, everpresent entertainment value. So, as you reach into your wallet or back pocket for a “must” update hen it hits the showrooms next year, just consider that this is the sports-car enthusiast’s gold standard - and it’s rapidly approaching platinum!

Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Cars’ Global Brand Director, said: “As its sporting forebears did in their era, the FType will break new ground by delivering stunning sports-car performance, while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence.” He added: “The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”

La Liga is back and, for Spanish football, it’s very much the best of times. Victory in Euro 2012 means Spain are the best national side ever (the only nation to win three consecutive international tournaments). They have the two best players in the league, and the two greatest club sides in Barcelona and Real Madrid. But scratch at the surface and you will see an abyss that threatens everything.

Match Report By Geoff Huxtable WITH six postponed Premier Division games last week, only two were played - and Cozy Wanderers moved a little clearer in third place. They had a convincing win over The Pub, while Target A, after beating Phoenix the week before, were brought back down to earth with a home draw against LA

laugh. Both sides have been quiet in the transfer market so far, but that will change. Barca have snapped up Jordi Alba (pictured) from Valencia, a move which shows again why La Liga is so ridiculous. The third-placed side need to strengthen - not sell to the big two. Alba should be joined by Arsenal’s Alex Song. They are still chasing a centre-back, and Liverpool’s Dani Agger is the main target. If they can sort that out, they hold the edge over Real. Jose Mourinho seems happy with

his squad, and he has some fine kids to fall back on. They are currently in a stand-off with Spurs over Luca Modric, but he will soon sign on. The rest of the clubs will be happy to get within 30 points of the big two and, in fact, they are weakening rather than improving. Apart from losing Alba, Valencia could also lose star striker Roberto Soldado. Former Liverpool defender Mauricio Pellegrino is the new boss and has a lot of work to do.

www.canarianweekly.com always seem to drop stupid points. They should look to kick on from their Europa League success, and they have bought well. Chelsea keeper Courtois is mustard and his re-signing on loan is a masterstroke. They should finish fourth, while it will be interesting to see how new-look Sevilla get on. Legend Freddie Kanoute has left for a Chinese retirement, while Maduro and Cicinho will tighten up the defence. Athletic Bilbao finished last season on their knees. They knocked Manchester United out on route to the Europa Cup final, which they lost. Ditto the Spanish Cup final, and the fixture congestion cost them a Champions League charge. But the great run has

come at a price. All their star names are on the radar of Europe’s finest. Fernando Llorente as good as handed in a transfer request when he confirmed he would not sign a new deal. Spurs, Roma, PSG and Man City started rubbing their hands instantly. Javi Martinez, Fernando Amorebieta, Ander Herrera and even stalwart Andoni Iraola could also leave. I like the progress Espanyol are making. Wakaso came from nowhere last year to star for relegated Villarreal and he is a shrewd signing, as is Sergio Tejera from Mallorca. The Islanders have also strengthened. Former Tenerife favourite Alejandro Alfaro is still there and has been joined

17 August - 23 August 2012

by Antonio Lopez and Javi Marquez.Talking of former Tenerife heroes, Nino and Marc Betran will have their second season at Osasuna. They finished ninth last year and should improve on that this campaign. Top-flight football is back in the north west of Spain following the promotion of Galician rivals Celta Vigo and Deportivo La Coruña. The former return after five years away. They play smart football and should survive, as will Deportivo, managed by Jose Luis Oltra. The man who guided Tenerife into La Liga did it at the first time of asking with La Coruna. He has signed seven new players and has admitted they are looking for a top 10 finish. Why did we ever let him go? The rest of the sides will all be battling to avoid relegation, and it's hard to say with conviction who the bottom three will be. Rayo Vallecano had an amazing adventure last year but will do well to avoid the drop. They are still in a deep, financial hole and their amazing fans will only get them so far. Granada, in theory, should have enough contacts to find a side to stay up. But theory isn’t points! And after performing the greatest Houdini escape ever, Real Zaragoza’s fans deserve a better season. They won’t get it, mind!

Tony’s tigers roar to top SUMMER holidays led to a few postponements in the Oasis Fm pool league, but that didn’t worry topflight new boys Tenerife Hammers C. They maintained their fine start to the season as they got the better of The Peacocks A 8-4. Tony’s team were always in the box seat and, with Paul back playing blokes, they eased to victory. Their second win sets them up nicely for Tuesday’s derby match with Hammers A. Dreamers host Palms A next week and they warmed up with a point at Inn The Pink A. Both sides felt they should have won a topsy-turvy tie. The Pink boys were 5-2 up before a fine Dreamers fightback. The new system this season lends itself to comebacks, and Dreamers made full use of their chance. Mark won a couple of matches, Tommy chipped in and Steve won the last leg to take a draw. Hat-tip to Terry, who won all three matches against Woody! Gaffers A got their first win of the season as they eased past an out-of-sorts Terrace A. Captain Neil led the way by winning all three of his games, including a 7-baller over James. Gaffers have the side to win this league, but they will need Ashley to find his form because he lost two more matches this week. Toscales A are on the board. They bounced back from an opening-night defeat to slay Bar La Caña, while Terrace B nearly pulled off a major shock at home to Phoenix Knights. They were 2-0 early doors, but saw Phoenix power back. Inspired by Harry, they won the next four frames, only for the pendulum to swing again. Richie won two frames, Fin chipped in and Ken sevenballed Dave T to make it 6-4. However Harry completed his hat-trick, and Bubbles weighed in against Pat to give both sides a point. Next Door put down a marker as they stormed to the top of Division Two. Their eye-catching 9-3 win over The Bluebell saw star player Ian rack up another three wins - and they could take some stopping. Treehouse A are well tipped up, and they are also 100%. All their players

chipped in as they handed Full Monty A an 8-4 defeat. Inn The Pink B had a real battle at Wigan Arms, who were making their debut. Scott took the first rubber for the hosts, only for the visitors to win the next four frames. Scott won again to stop the rot, and Mark got another back to make it 4-3. But Callum restored order for the Pink B, and Gary then Dean finished the job off, before Scott completed his hat-trick. Exiles A had a similar seesaw contest with Palms B.

Richie and Jeff gave Palms the early advantage, before the Exiles crew found their form. They were swiftly 4-2 and then 5-3 up. Eeyore gave Palms hope, only for Tel and Del to seal a 7-5 victory. Tenerife Pool Tables have their first point. They drew with Exiles B, while The Square secured their firstever win in some style accounting for Toscales B 102. Paul, Tom and Matt were all unbeaten - and well done to Sharon, who beat Trevor!

Horoscopes of the week Leo

(July 24th - August 23rd) What you thought to be a promise for the week ahead could turn out to be only a suggestion. If you want something to happen, or you want to get something done, then take the lead. Life and love can get more than a little interesting if you do. Lending money to friends and family may come back on you so, if you lend it, you may as well give it. VIRGO (August 24thSeptember 23rd) Why play games in love if you are serious about the person whose emotions you are toying with? Because you’re frightened of getting hurt again, right? It’s time to try being you again. It’s the only way you’ll find out if you fit, and the stars suggest you do. By the way, it’s worth sticking to arrangements in your work this week. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Time spent with family and younger people in particular helps to dispel the difficult air which you found yourself subjected to last month. You also find more in common with a new person than you at first realise, and you start to believe that the future has the possibilities which were only ever in your dreams. But you must avoid breaking the rules in work. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) You may be a little confused or indefinite, so you will have to be careful about making decisions on important affairs. News of people from your past makes you pleased that you moved on and away from them, and it also makes you realise it’s time to up your game even more. Solo work projects can hold the key to the kind of money you’d like to make. SAGIT TARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) This week ahead is really good for artistic work and study, which means working as part of a team. Your element of fire often makes you feel the need to do everything

Page 48

on your own, but not this time. Indeed, showing you think of others needs as well as your own can have a positive effect on your professional and your personal life. But don’t mix business with pleasure. CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th) Don’t be afraid of defeat because you are never so near to victory as when defeated in a good cause. You get proof of how far you’ve come with midweek events, when you’ll also find out that new paths promise a better future than you’d thought was possible. Trips away for the sake of family turn out to be well worthwhile. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) This is a week which is best used to complete old work and solve neglected problems. A dead end you experience in your work turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Tuesday is day of peace talks for you and a family member, especially if you’re willing to be the one to offer the first hand of friendship. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Someone you thought you knew really well shows you a side to her nature which makes you doubt that she is all that she seemed to be. Don’t be upset with yourself, but just be grateful that you found out at all. News of a wedding or engagement gives you reason to plan an upcoming trip. Oh, and this is a great time to apply for new jobs, or forms of study. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Last Friday’s new Moon should have helped you to get out of many

of the sticky situations you are sure to have got yourself into recently. So don’t make promises you can’t keep! It could be your most valuable lesson at this time as it has already lost you one friend - and could end up losing you many! TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) Domestic problems may continue to create disputes and difficulties, and you should do what you can to remain calm and not lose your patience. You can consult with influential people, whose goodwill can be obtained and who can help you to get into the professional circles which seemed so impossible to infiltrate this time last year. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Arguments or quarrels will not give this week a fortunate start, but you will find out what was niggling a close one recently and why he or she behaved so erratically. Don’t use friend who has been good to you, but keep your distance if you know you are only after what they can give to you. Remember, a friend right now would actually be better as a longterm partner. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) This is one of those pleasant weeks when fun may be more appealing than work. This is all very well if you have done the work which needs doing, but not so much if you’re ignoring what has to be done. Use Monday as your power day to get things done. Others will be willing to help you - and you should finally put something which has been a thorn in your side to rest.
