Plane common sense! But the Spanish Government says No to a permanent Canarian base DESPITE fire damage estimated at over 100 million euros throughout the Canaries in recent weeks, the Spanish Government refuses to base three Canadair seaplanes in the Canaries permanently. It doesn’t make sense, especially to the thousands of people who have been affected in any way, as the forest blazes have swept through rural villages in Tenerife and La Gomera, in particular. We are told that it takes up to 20 hours for a water plane to arrive from Torrejon, the Spanish Air force base in Madrid after being requested, yet the Canarian Government’s plea for urgent, essential help has fallen on deaf ears. And when you see or read about the immense damage caused by forest fires in regions which have not experienced any serious rainfalls for over a year, it’s hard to believe the attitude of mainland politicians. It’s even more difficult to believe that Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s PP Government has 23 of these seaplanes at its disposal, which stand idle for much of the time; including 14 CL215T, scooper, which holds 5,346 litres and 3 CL415, super scooper which holds 6,140 litres. Each plane costs 20,800 euros (£16,000). At one stage recently, three seaplanes, having helped put out three rapid fires in Tenerife, then had to dash over to La Gomera to lend a hand there. If a Canarian base were to be installed for these fire-fighting

seaplanes, it is obvious that any outbreaks on the Island would be attacked swiftly and, thus, give the ground forces a chance keep the damage to a minimum. Also, blazes on any of the other Canary Islands would also be attended in doublequick time. What makes these saviours in the sky - and the helicopters, of course - so invaluable is that they can reach the mountainous regions which are inaccessible to our fire engines and their gallant Bomberos crews, who toil hour after hour to try to keep the fires in check. What makes it even harder to bear is the thought that some of these fires, at least, have been started deliberately. And while prevention is almost impossible in the tinder-dry areas, at least the water planes would be a comfort to the fire-fighters from all sectors and excellent back-up for the helicopters. In fact, since the five

seaplanes employed by the Canarian Government ceased operations last week, when the La Gomera fire was downgraded to a level one, they are still smouldering. With another heatwave beckoning, they could reignite at any time, and who’s to say that it won’t all kick off again in Tenerife? Angry Canarian President Paulino Rivero says: “The Canaries are entitled to use state resources to the same degree as the rest of the regions. “And, since this is so, we want

at least three of these aircraft to remain permanently in the archipelago so that we can truly provide support in case of a fire.” The President’s forceful message to the Spanish Government said it all in just a few words: “It is a matter of justice, not of generosity.” It is mind-boggling to try to comprehend just why the austerity measures imposed by Spain’s central and regional governments earlier this year were allowed to embrace the fire brigades.

No arrests, but Rivero wants action CANARIAN Government delegate María del Carmen Hernández Bento announced last week that arrests had been made relating to the La Gomera fire. But the Guardia Civil, which is carrying out a thorough investigation, stresses that statements only had been taken from several people, and that there have been no arrests. “Any arrest claims could prejudice the investigation,” said a spokesman. “We have to continue to investigate, but that does not mean the fire was started deliberately.” But Canary Island President Paulino Rivero has demanded that the “heartless” arsonists be jailed. “Otherwise, there would be a ’siege’ of fires,” he said.

They were left short-handed as they battled some of the worst forest fires in years, scorching more than 140,000 hectares of woodlands, including La Gomera’s World Heritage site of Garajonay National Park. José Miguel Pérez, VicePresident of the Canary Islands Government, said that before this summer’s fires, “important decisions” were taken to prevent catastrophes like the Eighties’ tragedy, when 20 people perished in a La Gomera blaze. “I am convinced those decisions served to save lives, which is the best achievement we’ve had in this summer of Canary fires.” He added tellingly: “But we must still improve the safety factor, and more permanent support from aircraft is essential.” Perez, who seriously doubts the commitment of Prime Minister Rajoy to the Islands, also recalled that the Canarian Executive was still “expecting

a call from the Spanish Government, just to say, ‘Hey, you need something? You have a problem? We can lend a hand’.” “It’s not going to happen now because the Spanish Government has not called anyone,” he said. For all the pressing needs for seaplanes to be stationed here, Pascual Gil, the Cabildo’s Chief of Forest Planning and Projects, believes the Russian Kamov helicopters are “much more practical than the planes”. He reasons that they are more effective because they have greater manoeuvrability, and that time between loading and unloading water doesn’t take as long as the seaplanes. “It is true that the seaplane helps extinguish fire, but we have always asked for the Kamov because we believe it is more effective and work well,” he said. “Also, the Kamov has a similar 5,000-litre capacity as seaplanes, with the advantage of being able to disperse its load much closer to the ground.” He added:“Keep in mind that the seaplane is dependent on the state of the sea to get water, so that the time between loading and unloading is a minimum of 20 minutes. “But this can go up to an hour if the sea is rough and it has to go to the airport to collect more water.” “Meanwhile, helicopters take water from tanks, so the time can be reduced to five minutes between downloads.” It is a solid argument against seaplanes, but Canarian Government officials are adamant that they would be a tremendous boost for the Islands’ fire-fighters if they were available here on a permanent basis.

The Minister of Sports, Jesus Perez, has said they are so

proud to have four athletes from Tenerife in London, a well-deserved reward for all the effort they have been making for years, with great personal sacrifice and dedication. Perez added that it was an event that they should enjoy, regardless of the results and said that they are already winners because they have been involved. Once there though, he said they are sure to want to do their best and, if given the right circumstances, finish among the best in their respective sports. The Minister said that the Island is convinced that they will succeed and will bring home some medals for Tenerife.

Public Works Minister Ana Pastor and Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría have just presented the draft legislation that the government will take to Congress. The major goal, Pastor said, is to strike a “balance” between landlords and tenants in a country with a home-ownership rate of around 82 per cent, and a marked aversion for renting out one’s property because of the belief that the law clearly benefits the tenants; even those who fail to pay the rent.

Among other things, the law will encourage “fasttrack evictions” of tenants in default, where settling debts at the last minute will no longer save defaulters from eviction. The Secretary of State for Infrastructure, Rafael Catalá, said the aim is to prevent abuses by “default professionals.” Owners will also have an easier time getting their property back if they need it for themselves, with only two months’ notice necessary rather than a contract clause. One of the more controversial aspects of

the draft legislation is the elimination of the use of the Consumer Price Index as the basis for raising the rent year on year. From now on, both parties will be able to freely set the rent, something that consumer organizations argue will favour abusive behaviour by landlords. As for the tenants, they will be able to deduct the cost of any refurbishment work carried out in their rented properties from their taxes, and only give one month’s notice instead of two if they wish to terminate their lease ahead of time.

Cheese and honey the focus of DEGUSTA.ME THIS year the Tenerife Cabildo has decided to include Adeje’s third edition of DEGUSTA.ME in its ‘Muestra Gastronómica’, a programme organised by Tenerife Tourism, which provides greater coverage of such events around the Island with both national and international exposure. The main attractions this year are the different restaurants involved as well as seminars, thematic workshops and displays of world cuisine. DEGUSTA.ME will be held throughout the month of September. The Adeje Councillor in charge of this project, Ermitas Moreira Garcia said, “It contains different activities aimed at the business sector and the general public, through a gastronomic tour of the world. DEGUSTA.ME is based on the most innovative vision, such as training to bring new things in our daily diet, in an easy to understand way that can then be done at home.” This edition focuses particularly two products, with one of the proposed ingredients, cheese or honey, always on the plate, accompanied by a wine produced on the Island. Among the participating establishments are: Bar Atlántida, Bar-Restaurante España, Tasca Pica-Pica, Tasca El Majao, Atalaya Gastro Bar, Cafetería- Restaurante Compostela, Cervecería La Polar, Cafetería Hauche II, Bar-Cafetería Hauche, BarRestaurante Violonchelo, Restaurante La Tasquita, Bar-Cafetería El Túnel, Bar-

Cafetería Casa Juan, BarCafetería Centro Cultural De Adeje, El Corral del Pollo de Adeje, Tasca-Café Las Tinajas, Restaurante La Vieja, Restaurante La Masia del Mar, La Bodega del Café, Lugar del Vino, among others. DEGUSTA.ME seeks to promote and strengthen the concept of Adeje as a place for good food and wine and, in terms of tourism particularly, as a complementary offer to visitors and local people. It also aims to encourage and promote diversification in the food sector, encourage the interest and participation of professionals in the samples on offer during the fair, as well as complementary activities and training programs. With DEGUSTA.ME, Adeje wants to disseminate and promote local products, in this case cheese and honey produced in the town, also

offering residents and tourists, food-related activities, from tasting, participation, training and more, and bring about the consolidation of the Municipality as a culinary tourism destination. The program of the third edition of DEGUSTA.ME will feature a variety of activities that run from September 2nd to 29th. Program: • Travelling Exhibition “Cheese and Honey”, Mirador shopping center, Sunday September 2nd, and Gran Sur Shopping Centre from 17th to 19th September, from 10 to 18 hours. • Cheese, Honey and Wine, Gourmet Market.

A word from our editor Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

Computer scam THE ANNUAL Pinolere Crafts Festival will kick off today (Friday), until Sunday from 10am until 9pm each day. The popular fair is dedicated to leather for 2012, although

everything is available, such as wine from nine different producers, with tasting on offer! Workshops on everything from wood sculpture to traditional folklore music, comics and children’s activities will be on offer

as well as demonstrations of the use of solar powered kitchens, with dishes from Hotel Rural Victoria chef Richard Etherington, on Friday and Saturday at 13.30. Those wishing to set off from Orotava can make use

of a special bus from the town centre that goes direct to the Pinolere fairground. Alternatively, extra taxis are being provided in Orotava and on presentation of a receipt for the taxi fare, visitors to the craft show will receive a 50% discount on their entrance fee.

End of Arona Summer Sale A total of 70 companies in the municipality are participating in the summer sale campaign an initiative driven by the area of Economic Development and Employment Arona City Council, headed u by Afonso Marcos Esquivel. He stressed that “our goals in launching this initiative will focus on providing participating companies

the opportunity to liquidate their merchandise from the summer season at exceptionally low prices, a positive development for entrepreneurs and we trust that results in an increase in sales on that day and for citizens who can access a variety of products at affordable prices.” To participate in this initiative companies must offer a minimum discount of 50% from the initial price of the selected products. The initiative means that companies will offer further discounts to celebrate the

Drain on water resources WATER levels in reservoirs throughout Tenerife have dropped to under 10% of capacity following the driest summer in 70 years. Crops are already failing, but the Cabildo has assured everyone, especially farmers, that water supplies in urban areas will not

feel the effects. There have been five heatwaves recently, with another one seemingly looming, and the Cabildo is pumping 40,000 cubic metres of water directly into the reservoir network every day. It helps, but it simply isn’t enough to solve the problem.

Arona Council waives Christmas bonus THE ARONA local government will not be collecting its annual Christmas bonus this year, as a gesture of solidarity with City Council workers and the public in general, announced Mayor Jose Alberto Gonzalez Reveron. The decision comes in response to the measures adopted by the central government, which, he said,

“Have focused especially on public employees without seeking alternative savings.” The measure will be approved during the next Council sitting, scheduled for September, and will result in a saving of around 40,000 euros. The Mayor explained, “This amount will go to the Board of Social Services’ Food Bank, with the aim of contributing to all households in the municipality that are struggling, especially at a time like Christmas.” Some 11 municipalities, each with over 20,000 inhabitants in Tenerife,

31 August - 06 September 2012

- Santa Cruz de Tenerife, La Laguna, Arona, Adeje, Granadilla, La Orotava, Los Realejos, Puerto de la Cruz, Candelaria, Tacoronte and Guía de Isora, - have all renounced the Christmas bonus in an act of solidarity with their workers, who have lost this extra remuneration as a result of the bill passed just a month ago by the Spanish Government. Although the decision to give up the extra December pay by councillors and staff of the 11 most populated municipalities of Tenerife is meant to be sympathetic to the workers, there

are other views that warn of the consequences of these measures, especially those involving public employees. The President of the Federation of Trade Tenerife (Fedeco), Luis Miguel, announced that spending at Christmas in the Canaries represents 57 per cent of annual consumption. With these cuts to public employees, however, the percentage will fall in the holidays by “between 20 and 30%”, Luis Miguel estimates, a knock-on effect that will have serious consequences in the retail sector.

LAST week, my tale about Vodafone obviously hit a nerve with many of you, with additional stories coming in of tied-in contracts and faulty equipment. I apologise if this column is turning in to a consumer help site but, as I said originally, if it helps just one person, then it’s worth it. Perhaps it also means there is a need for a consumer column all on its own. This week a Golf del Sur resident has got in touch with me about a malware PC scam that caused Mrs R a lot of inconvenience, to say the least. Malware is the term used to describe malicious software, which is used or created to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems. It can appear in the form of code, scripts, active content, and other software. It’s a general term used to refer to a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software, including computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spyware, adware, and other malicious programmes. Mrs R told Canarian Weekly: “My husband received an e-mail purporting to be from Correos (it had what looked like the logo) advising that they had an item which could not be delivered as the address was wrong and inviting us to print the email and importantly, to click on a link to an embedded image to provide information to be printed and taken to the post office. “As it happens, I am awaiting a delivery of some books I have purchased from Amazon and I thought that it might be that. It did briefly cross my mind that I didn’t remember giving the Post Office an e-mail address (we have a post box) but it was

possible. “The whole thing seemed feasible as, in the past, the local Correos office has telephoned us to advise that they have a parcel for us.” As soon as Mr R followed the link, he received a message from Live Security Platinum advising that many of his programmes had been infected with viruses, and inviting him to download their software at a cost of £60 to resolve the issue. Thankfully, at this stage, alarm bells rang for Mr R, and luckily, he went no further as he has a full set of anti-malware and anti-virus protection. Mrs R told Canarian Weekly: “We were totally unable to access any of the anti-virus programmes to deal with the problem. “I then checked the Internet to see if this alleged company was a scam, and found that it was. I also found several entries which purportedly gave instructions to enable the programme to be removed, but, unfortunately they didn’t work! My husband then found another solution and all is well.” The internet is full of many entries about this scam, which seems to have begun earlier this year. I know it has been in the UK as my mum also suffered something similar. The problem is that once you have it in your computer, you try to find a quick solution online but you then have the added worry of whether the solution is also fake as well! Mrs R concluded by saying: “I am writing to you about this as I hope that you may be able to print a warning in the next edition of Canarian Weekly to warn other readers. I hope that this will be helpful and, maybe, will prevent others from getting caught out and actually parting with their money. Until next week …

NEWS IN BRIEF Study at your leisure THE Study Room, (La Sala de Estudios), at Los Cristianos Municipal Library, is extending its opening hours on weekends from tomorrow (Saturday) until 30th December. Miguel Ángel Méndez, Arona Councillor for Education and Culture, said the longer hours, from 9am until 8pm on weekends and fiestas, will provide the optimum time and location for study. “We are trying to attend to the needs of students in Arona and the South because they need space to study in preparation for exams and class work.”

Economy will pick up SPAIN’S economic output will improve in the first quarters of 2013, according to Fernando Jimenez Latorre, Secretary of State for the Economy, following quarterly data which showed the economy shrank 0.4% in the second quarter of this year. “In principle, we believe we’re at the point of the biggest contraction, which will continue into the second half of the year,” he said. “We’ll start to see a correction from the first quarters of next year.” Spain is suffering its second recession in three years. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) fell 1.3% on an annual basis in the second quarter of 2012, which was worse than initial estimates of 1%..

Valuable asset for beach ADEJE’S Playa de Troya has introduced secure lock-up boxes so that beach-users can enjoy a day of fun without worrying about their valuables. The 216 available boxes have been designed by The Box Security Services, a Canarian company, and are similar to those used for mail or in banks. Two sets of keys are required to open the box - one for the user and the other for a member of staff operating the system. The Town Council said this is the first beach in the world with such modern storage facilities on offer to the public.

Spain’s grip on newcomers SPAIN hung on to some of the tourists diverted here in 2011 as a result of the uprisings across North Africa. The nation received some 33 million foreign visitors from 1st January to 1st t to 30th June, which was 3.3% more than the same period last year. The World Tourism Organisation says that tourists redirected from Egypt and Tunisia last year benefited a number of destinations, including Spain, which closed 2011 with 56.7 million foreign visitors 7.6% more than in 2010.

Family costs are rising THE Government’s increase in IVA/VAT from tomorrow (Saturday) means the average family will pay 470 euros more each year. Foodstuffs and transport will be two of the sectors which will most affect the family coffers. Consumers Union OCU recommends families compare prices in the different stores and not be tricked by misleading advertising. It also gives the same advice regarding leisure activities, shows and performances, hairdressers and funeral services.

Illegals face health problems AROUND 20,000 of the illegal immigrants currently in the Canary Islands will find themselves in a state of limbo with regards to health cover from tomorrow (Saturday). That’s because of the regional government’s decision to implement a decree that leaves them with no health benefits. The exception to these new rules are children, pregnant women, anyone who is deemed to be seriously ill and those people who are already on a waiting list. Juana Maria Reyes, Director of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), said the illegals already on a waiting list for surgery will be dealt with. But the Department of Health will continue to attend emergencies resulting from accidents or serious illness affecting the illegal immigrant population.

Spain and the big EU bailout SPAIN expects to use about 60 billion of the 100 billion euros on offer from the European Union for the bailout of its financial sector, the country’s economy minister has said.

Luis de Guindos believes the amount needed will be close to a 62-billion-euro preliminary estimate that audit firm Oliver Wyman made in June. The results of a more detailed audit on the capitalisation needs of Spain’s banks are expected in mid-September, he said in an interview with the International Herald Tribune. Spain’s financial sector has been reeling in recent months, as the scale of the toxic assets created by the country’s burst real estate bubble has become apparent. The economy is struggling to emerge from a doubledip recession and there was further bad news y as the National Statistics Institute reported that GDP grew by only 0.4 per cent in 2011, rather than the previously announced 0.7 per cent.

In May, the government part-nationalised Spain’s fourth-largest lender, Bankia, which the authorities said needed public funds of about 24 billion euros in order to stay afloat. In June, the country requested a rescue package for the banking sector worth up to 100 billion. The conservative government of Mariano Rajoy is implementing reforms to comply with the terms of that loan, which is still being

finalised. The financial crisis has added to Spain’s other economic woes, keeping its borrowing costs at unsustainable levels. There is growing speculation that the country will soon request another bailout, under which the European Central Bank would oversee the buying of Spanish sovereign debt on the secondary market. Guindos admitted that such action would be “an important helping hand”,

adding: “we have to give reassurances to the ECB that we are going to meet our commitments”. The next few weeks are likely to be key in Spain’s attempts to emerge from the euro zone debt crisis. The ECB is scheduled to discuss the issue of bond-buying when its governing council meets on September 6th. On the same day, Prime Minister Rajoy is due to meet with German chancellor Angela Merkel.

The World’s best underwater photographers in Las Galletas ARONA’S Mayor Jose Alberto Gonzalez Reveron, and Environment and Tourism Councillors Antonio Sosa and Francisco Niño, respectively, have presented CABOSUB 2012, the Canary Island’s Underwater Photography Championships, which will be held from now until Sunday in Las Galletas. Also at the presentation, were President of the Canarian Federation of Underwater Activities, Luciano Cedrés, and Pierre Yves Cousteau, who will sit on the Championship’s

judge’s jury. The contest involves a total of 16 teams, made up of 32 athletes, among which are the world’s best underwater photographers, including Canarian David Barrios, who is the current world champion and Spanish team champion in this discipline. Gonzalez Reveron spoke of the importance for Arona of hosting an event of this nature, saying, “Diving is a big part of tourism in Arona, and our intention is to position the Municipality well in this area, not only because it is an attraction that generates

economic development, but also because it allows us to work in the field of sustainability”. Both Councillors Niño and Sosa recalled that the City Council, as part of the Urban Initiative, has driven the initiative ‘Las Galletas, diving capital’, which aims to see that both Las Galletas and Arona are benchmarks worldwide in the field of underwater sport. In this regard, they said, “This championship is another step forward in the knowledge of the true values of our marine environment, something

absolutely necessary to value and preserve it.” On this question, Pierre Yves Cousteau said, “I found the Canarian seabed unique, with very clean water and lots of potential to become a world-wide renowned diving destination”. Finally, the president of the Canarian Federation of Underwater Activities, Luciano Cedrés, announced,“Due to the quality of the facilities we have here, our commitment is to continue this initiative and ask Las Galletas to host the Spanish Underwater Photography Championships”. The winning images will be announced on Sunday, September 2nd, at a ceremony to be held in the auditorium Infanta Leonor in Los Cristianos, where the participant’s photos will be shown.

Tenerife Olympians join #TFseMueve campaign TENERIFE athletes who participated in the 2012 Olympic Games, Sergio Rodriguez, Eli Chavez, Andres Mata, Alicia Cebrian, Javier Hernandez and Mario Pestano, are the latest to join the # TFseMueve campaign. The Tenerife athletes, who are known worldwide, want to show their support for the social mobilisation campaign that aims to gather as many supporters as possible before September 28th, to ensure that Tenerife again be included in the EU’s TransEuropean Transport Network, which would provide the island with a share of 550 billion euros in funding to upgrade transportation infrastructures and ensure ease of movement internationally for both cargo and passengers. Rodriguez, Cebrian, Pestano and Hernandez have confirmed their support for the initiative, while Eli Chavez and Andres Mata have been informed of the initiative via email. The platform # TFseMueve said it appreciates the cooperation shown by athletes and takes the opportunity to congratulate them on their performances in London. The platform # TFseMueve is a social movement in defence of Tenerife’s claim to be included in the TransEuropean Transport Network and is trying to gather as many signatures on their petition as possible. Canarian Weekly contacted Cabildo Vice President and Minister of Tourism, Economics and Competitiveness, Carlos Alonso, and asked him to

explain his view on why the Island’s inclusion is so important. He replied, “We are facing a critical situation for the island of Tenerife. Much of our future depends on the inclusion of the port in Santa Cruz and the airports in the North and South in the Trans-European Transport Network. “An important step in this decision will occur at the end of Septemberspecifically the 28th - the date on which the European Parliament will submit its proposed amendments

to the European Network. And we must be there to strongly defend the ports and airports of the Island and its inclusion in the core network. For that, we need your readers to add their signatures to the petition through the website or through http://tfsemueve. org/ or in their respective municipal Town Halls. And it needs to be done soon”. Alonso added, “We are working to make known to everyone the need for Tenerife to be included in the Trans-European Transport Network. It is a vital decision

for the Island, and much of our future is here. We’re talking about creating jobs and avoiding an increase in the cost of living. “In the report submitted to the EU we highlight some points, such as the integration of the insular labour market that means work in any part of the island without change of residence and the need for coordinated management and use of major transportation facilities such as ports and airports to ensure total external connectivity “. Alonso said, “The Port of

Santa Cruz and airports in the North and South must be within the Trans-European Transport Network. They are our principal tool for growth, a fact that is even more relevant in the light of the global crisis. Otherwise, we are doomed to an increase in the price of the products we consume every day, the price of airline tickets, and ultimately, life. Lose connectivity and it will result in a loss of tourist arrivals, with consequent damage to our economy. “In early September we will have a round of visits to

the European Parliament. We need to get our voice to Parliament. Tenerife citizens can help by signing the petition. In that sense, it is important to support the platform # TFseMueve because we need to get our claim to Brussels to give us the treatment we deserve. Tenerife is staking its future on it,” concluded Alonso. The platform consists of people and groups from all walks of life, from workers to entrepreneurs, to neighbours and public institutions. Everyone moves with one goal: the good of Tenerife.

Jobless must seek work to receive benefit FURTHER conditions regarding eligibility for a 400-euro monthly payment for the long-term unemployed whose benefits have run out have emerged, following the government’s announcement that it was extending the payment for an extra six months. Jobless men and women

will have to provide evidence from their local unemployment office that they have been actively seeking work or attending retraining courses, according to the decree published in the Official Gazette (BOE). The government has agreed to extend the life of the 400-euro monthly payment,

31 August - 06 September 2012

which had been due to expire on August 15th. Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría said the measures are to ensure, “People without any means of support won’t find themselves without state help”. Regular unemployment benefits last a maximum of two years in Spain.

The benefit will be raised to 450 euros for recipients who have two dependents and a spouse also with no source of income. But those living with a parent or grandparent earning at least 481 euros a month would be excluded from the benefit. The payment is a lifeline to many people, with

official data showing that a quarter of the workforce is unemployed, and that 1.74 million households have no family member in work. Some estimates suggest however, that of Spain’s five million unemployed, around 400,000 are collecting benefits and working illegally. Earlier in the year, the

government passed labour reforms to address the problem. From now on, small companies that hire an unemployed person will get half of that person’s jobless benefit as an incentive to hire them legally. The new employee will also be able to keep 25 per cent of their dole money, during their first year on the job.

Customer bank withdrawals are on the up THE SPANISH banking system suffered record outflows of private deposits last month, but the authorities downplayed the significance of the development. According to figures released by the European Central Bank, 74,228 billion euros was withdrawn from bank accounts in July, the biggest monthly amount since September 1997. As a result, total deposits at the end of July stood at 1,508 trillion euros, a fall of 4.6 per cent from the previous month. Deposits have now fallen for four months of the year and stand at their lowest levels since May 2008, when the figure was 1,507 trillion euros. The amount withdrawn in July was more than double the previous highest figure for the year, which was in May when deposits fell by 33,157 billion euros. Over the past 12 months, deposits have declined by 206,990 billion euros, or 12 per cent, from 1.715 trillion

at the end of July 2011. However, the secretary of state for the economy, Fernando Jiménez Latorre, said aggregate figures did not indicate that there had been a “significant” fall in deposits with Spanish banks. Latorre suggested that funds may have been switched to other instruments, such as bank bills. Spanish newswire Europa Press quoted Bank of Spain officials as saying that twothirds of the withdrawals were by other financial institutions for motives related to securitisation trusts. Of the remaining third withdrawn by households and the corporate sector, the officials said that more than half can be accounted for by seasonal factors. Companies withdraw money from accounts to pay taxes on a quarterly basis, while withdrawals by individuals normally pick up in July and August to pay for holidays. The sources said that taking these factors into account, the pattern of a slow decline in deposits seen since the middle of 2011 remains in place.

Three sea turtles are released at El Medano

THE TENERIFE Cabildo, through the Environment Department and the Tahonilla Centre for Wildlife Recovery (CRFS), with the collaboration of the Municipality of Granadilla, happily released three sea turtles (Caretta caretta) at El Medano beach recently. Among those attending the touching act was Cabildo Environment Minister, Ana Lupe Mora, and Councillors for Social Affairs and the Environment, Ana Esther Flores Ventura and Jacob Donate, respectively. The ceremony was also attended by other

Page 8

groups, such as the Office of Volunteerism, the Coasts department and non-profit association Asupare. All specimens of sea turtles rescued in Tenerife are taken to the Tahonilla Centre for Wildlife Recovery, where they receive whatever veterinary care necessary. Hundreds of people were at the beach to enjoy the moment when the three turtles were set free to return to their natural habitat. Events such as these seek to raise awareness and disseminate information about threatened species here in the Archipelago.

Playa Ajabo’s open to services’ tenders

ADEJE’S Playa Ajabo has now been fully reconditioned and tenders are invited to provide services to the seaside locale. Once the Provincial Coastal Service of Santa Cruz de Tenerife approved the works carried out in the area, which the Adeje’s council had approved unanimously at the last regular sitting, the special administrative contract for A SERIES of supermarkets have decided to absorb the IVA/VAT increase which comes into effect on September 1st. It means a price war in the high street or the out of town commercial centres. These increases apply directly to mainland Spain, and indirectly to Tenerife through imported goods. Mercadona is the latest to take up the idea of not passing the IVA increase on to their clients, and they claim they have not put up prices over the summer. The say that 90% of their more than 8,000 lines have the same price as a year ago, and it is only when there is an increase in the price of raw materials are these passed on to the shopper. IVA/VAT goes from 18% to 21% and the reduced rate from 8% to 10%, while the super-reduced rate, which is applied to fresh foodstuffs of basic need will stay at 4%.

seasonal services and a kiosk has been declared open for adjudication. Meanwhile, Town Planning and Land Management Councillor José María Álvarez Acosta explained, “Now that we have the complete approval of the work at Playa Ajabo, we will offer to tender the operation of services, which we had so far not been able to do because the municipality did not have the necessary approvals. However, now we have them

we will work as quickly as possible so that a kiosk, umbrellas and sun beds are available”. Cleaning and security at Playa Ajabo will be carried out by the Municipality, which takes this opportunity to remind beach goers of the importance of keeping both the coast and toilets clean and to avoid leaving litter by using the bins provided. The Statement of Administrative Terms and

technical specifications that govern the Contracts will be published in the Official Gazette of the Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the Contractor Profile tender notice. They then publish the composition of the jury in the Contractor’s profile, with a minimum of four days notice of the meeting held for the qualification of the documentation, referred to in Article 130.1 of the Public Sector Contracts law.

Canary Islands’ anger over new health-care cuts FOUR Spanish regions have condemned the cuts in health care that will be applied from September 1st by the conservative government of Mariano Rajoy, including one that leaves illegal immigrants without free health care. In a joint statement, the regions of the Canary Islands, Andalusia, Asturias and the Basque Country described as regressive the policies implemented by the administration of the rightwing Popular Party during its eight months in office. Among these backward measures, they mentioned withdrawal of drugs from the state funding system and the implementation of an insurance model already passed in Spain, laying off public healthcare for Spanish citizens and foreigners living

in this country. According to these territories, the solution to the crisis does not entail imposing an economic and social model based on the restriction of basic fundamental rights, such as education and health, or the privatisation of the coverage and management of public services. On the contrary, they argued that maintaining a cohesive society, with an equitable and quality health and education are essential foundations to address the financial meltdown. More than 153,000 illegal immigrants will lose their health insurance card on September 1st, a move with which the Spanish government expects to save about 500 million euros, as part of its drastic adjustments to reduce the fiscal deficit. Detractors of the unpopular decision argue that the number of illegal aliens is negligible, so withdrawal of medical care saves too little and reaffirms discrimination.

Bullfighting is back on state-financed TV

ANIMAL rights activists have reacted angrily to news that bullfighting is com-

ing back to Spanish public television in September for the first time in six years. State-financed broadcaster RTVE said it would screen a bullfighting festival from north-central Valladolid on September 5th, featuring star matadors including “El Juli” Julian Lopez Escobar and Jose Maria Manzanares. “Television Espanola believes that a festival of this quality should be made available to all Spanish fans,” it said in a statement. Public television had halted bullfighting broadcasts in 2006, blaming the high price for broadcast rights and a dwindling audience for the spectacle in Spain. But the broadcaster decided to show the fight, it said, after all involved, including the bull ranch and matadors, agreed to waive broadcasting fees. It would be the first of a “brief but symbolic” series of top class bullfighting festivals shown on public television, it said. “It is a clear backward step for the well-being of animals and the defence of animals in this country,” said Silvia Barquero, spokeswoman for the political animal defence group PACMA. “We think it is completely inappropriate for Spanish public television to be broadcasting bullfights when they had already stopped,” she said, arguing that polls showed most Spaniards opposed bullfighting.

Page 10

Barquero decried the fact that the bullfight would be broadcast live at 6pm during a 5am-8pm children’s viewing period when violent images are banned from television. RTVE’s style book, the manual for its operations, which is available online, had previously said that bullfights were violent acts that should not be shown during those hours. But a new RTVE board appointed after the arrival in power of a conservative Popular Party government last December changed the rules in February this year. “The allusion introduced at the time that bullfights were violence against animals was changed by the existing board,” said a source close to the RTVE management. “Now it is the parents who have the decision, or autonomy, to evaluate and decide whether a bullfight would be damaging or not to the children,” the source said. Bullfighting has been on the decline for years in Spain, with a 2010 survey in leading daily El Pais showing 60 per cent of respondents opposed the practice. Barcelona’s ring held its final bullfight in September last year after the Catalonia region banned bullfighting, becoming the second Spanish region to do so after the Canary Islands. For his part, the mayor of the northern Basque city of San Sebastian announced just this week that he did

not plan to sign contracts with bullfight organizers for 2013. The latest row is unfolding against a tense political backdrop at RTVE, whose head, nominated in June, Leopoldo GonzalezEchenique, was a top official in the previous Popular Party government of Jose Maria Aznar. The director of RTVE has been a public appointee since 1980 but the law was amended by the previous Socialist government in 2006 to require nominees to be approved by a two-thirds majority of parliament. In April, however, the new conservative government used its majority in parliament to scrap the 2006 amendment, paving the way for Gonzalez-Echenique’s appointment. The government justified the change on the grounds that parliament had repeatedly failed to agree on a new RTVE president after the previous boss resigned in July 2011 “for personal reasons”. Gonzalez-Echenique has appointed a slew of conservative figures to management positions at RTVE since he took charge in June, notably appointing as head of news Julio Somoano, who is close to Aznar. RTVE has five television channels, five radio stations and 6,400 employees paid for by a 1.2 billion euro budget last year.

The London Paralympics THE London Paralympics began yesterday with Team GB athletes’ smashing world records. Cyclist Sarah Storey got off to a brilliant start setting a new Games record in the process, she achieved three minutes 32.170 seconds to advance to the gold medal ride-off in the 3km C5 individual pursuit. The 35-year-old swimmerturned-cyclist has won seven Paralympic titles since making her debut in Barcelona in the pool in 1992 and is aiming to add to her collection in London. Swimmer Nyree Kindred also got off to a flyer by booking her passage into the S6 100 metres backstroke final by setting a Paralympic record of one minute 27.96, shaving 0.22 seconds off

China’s Lu Dong’s time set in the previous heat. Both performances have raised hopes of an early gold rush in the Games, although there was early disappointment for medal hopeful Di Coates, who failed to make the final in the women’s R2 10m Air Rifle standing event. The 58-year-old, who has spina bifida, was competing in a British record-equalling eighth games but bowed out in the first round this morning, saying she was affected by nerves. The Games got off to a spectacular start on Wednesday in Stratford’s Olympic Stadium with a stunning ceremony, including aerial acrobatics and guest appearances by the Queen and Professor Stephen Hawking. Some 62,000 people crammed into the stadium

31 August - 06 September 2012

as millions around the world watched on. Craig Spence, the International Paralympic Committee’s director of media and communications, hailed the “fantastic” ceremony a success. He said:“It gave a reflection of all impairment groups and I think it showed how far the Paralympic movement has come.” UK Sport have set ParalympicsGB the minimum target of winning 103 medals from at least 12 different sports, with the overall goal of once again finishing second in the medal table. Britain won 102 medals, including 42 golds, in Beijing four years ago to claim second place for a third consecutive Paralympic Games. But there was controversy on the first day of the Games

amid rumours that some Paralympians appeared to cover the branding of Games sponsors Atol. The company works alongside the Department for Work and Pensions to carry out Work Capability Assessments used to decide whether an individual is fit for work but has been criticised by some for its role in slashing the benefits bill. But Locog today said it was unaware that athletes had hidden the branding. It follows protests from disability rights activists about the company’s Government contract to carry out controversial tests that determine whether claimants of incapacity benefit are “fit to work”. Games organisers have repeatedly defended their decision to use the sponsor.

An English summer

AS we go to print, sweltering in the ongoing heat wave, latest figures published show that England and Wales have seen the wettest summer for 100 years, according to MeteoGroup. Rainfall for June, July and August was 14.25in (362mm), making it the

wettest summer since 1912. MeteoGroup forecaster Nick Prebble said this summer is set to be the fourth wettest since records began in 1727. This comes after unsettled weather over the Bank Holiday weekend that left many parts of the UK with heavy rain and flood alerts.

At last! A huge new building programme gets off the ground AN enormous housing development in Kent, which has sat on the shelf for many years, has finally been given the nod. It is believed that the project, at Ebbsfleet Valley, in Kent, will create up to 60,000 jobs, with 22,600 homes going up. Despite decades of wrangling over transport links and other infrastructure problems, the Government, three councils and developers Land Securities have now signed off the plans. Land Securities, which has invested over £100m in the development, says the first 1,500 properties should be completed by 2020 at Eastern Quarry, with a further 3,000 homes set to be built by 2030-31. The site, which covers 1,000 acres of land between Dartford and Gravesend, has

been standing idle while all the financial disputes over transport links and investment in community services were resolved. They included contributions to two major road-junction improvements, and it is believed that Housing Minister Grant Shapps intervened to push the project forward. The UK construction industry has been the biggest drag on economic growth in recent times, and this is a significant part of the Government’s bid to “get Britain building”. Colette O’Shea, of Land Securities, said: “We are pleased that a way forward has been found to unlock the potential at Eastern Quarry. “We will now sit down with our house-building partners and press ahead to start delivering homes and jobs.”

Jailed - the drink-driver who nearly killed a Welsh Paralympic hero A DRINK-DRIVE farmer has been jailed for 18 months after running into Paralympic cycling champion near Bridgend in South Wales, Edward Howell Adams, 60, who ignored 2008 gold-medallist Simon Richardson and drove off, was convicted of dangerous driving at Newport Crown Court. The Cowbridge farmer was 2½ times over the drink-drive limit a year ago when the 44-year-old cyclist was thrown 26 metres in the impact and suffered a collapsed lung, a perforated bowel, spinal fractures and a broken pelvis; destroying his hopes of competing at 2012. Mr Richardson, awarded an MBE in 2009, won two gold medals and a silver at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics, was training for the current London 2012 Paralympics

when he was struck by the transit van driven by Adams. It was revealed during the trial that Adams had tried to hide his van from police, had lied to them about the timings of the crash, and denied he had been drinking since 6am on the morning of the accident. Adams, who admitted drink-driving and failing to stop, but denied driving dangerously, was found guilty by jury earlier this month. Mr Richardson is set for a complicated operation to his spine in the coming weeks, from which it will take him up to a year to recover. But, having recovered from a serious car crash 11 years earlier, he has already set his sights on the Rio Paralympics in 2016. “I’ve done it before and I know I can do it again,” he said bravely.

Name-change schools warned to offer fair deal on uniform cost ENGLAND’S former secondary schools have warned of their “moral responsibility” to keep the cost of uniforms down as they change status to “academies”. The Local Government Association (LGA) says families do not have an “endless pot of cash” to pay for new clothing in the

recession. The average school uniform now costs more than £200 for secondary pupils, or £160 for those in primary school. And the LGA stresses that parents should not feel forced to buy costly new uniforms because their child is going to a new, free school, or one that has rebranded an academy. More than half of all secondary schools have now converted to academy status - and the number of taxpayer-

funded, self-governing “free schools” will reach 74 in the coming month. The LGA said schools should restrict uniform changes to one or two items, or to badges which can be sewn on. Councillor David Simmonds, chair of the LGA’s Children and Young People Board, said schools should offer their uniforms to multiple retailers, and that parents should also put pressure on schools to give them a fair deal. “In the current education

landscape, dozens of schools across the country are changing their names or identities,” he said. “It is understandable that many will want to mark this, but they need to remember that parents do not have an endless pot of cash for new school clothing. “Headteachers have a moral responsibility to minimise any additional costs that occur because they change their name or status, for whatever reason.”

New Orleans standing up to mighty hurricane this time HURRICANE ISAAC, the enormous cyclone battering parts of the US, had weakened to a tropical storm yesterday as it worked its way inland from the Gulf Coast. It has produced ferocious winds and torrential rain but, fortunately, the forecast says it will have weakened further last night (Thursday) to become a tropical depression. Fears of a repeat of the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe, which swamped large parts of New Orleans and killed hundreds,

were unfounded, and there have been no tragedy reports. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the multibillion-dollar flood defence “levees”, installed after Katrina, worked wonders. “The levee system is fine and there are no risks,” he said. “It is holding exactly as we expected it to, and it is performing exactly as it should.” A dawn-to-dusk curfew was imposed in New Orleans, enforced by armed police and National Guard units, amid reports of looting in a city

which had been deserted by many residents and tourists ahead of the storm. Outside of New Orleans, people living in low-lying Plaquemines Parish, a sparsely-populated area south of the city, have not been so lucky. Floodwater poured over levees which had not been improved since before Katrina and more than 100 were rescued, including 25 trapped on their roofs or attics. And officials warned that the dangers from Isaac were far from over. Rick

Knabb, National Hurricane Centre Director, said: “The slow motion and large size of this system are making the impacts more severe, and more wide-ranging than some folks might have perceived.” Around 750,000 homes have been left without power across Louisiana, and officials are warning that it could be days before repairs are possible. Damage has also been reported in Mississippi and Alabama, and Isaac’s slow pace means the impact could felt until tomorrow (Saturday).

Barclay’s introduce new chief, The odd couple just before a payments’ probe getting spiced THE Serious Fraud Office launched a probe into payments yesterday (Thursday) between Barclays Bank and the Middle East investors it tapped for funds during the financial crisis. Earlier, Antony Jenkins had been named head of its retail and business banking division, assuming the Chief Executive Officer role immediately. The investigation, following a similar inquiry by the Financial Services Authority last month, is a fresh blow to a bank still reeling from the Libor rate-rigging scandal. Barclays raised £11.5bn from investors in 2008, which effectively allowed it to avoid a state bailout, following Lloyds and Royal Bank of Scotland. The SFO is perusing payments between the bank and Qatar Holding - part of sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority - which Barclays said made a £4.5bn investment. But while the FSA’s

investigation involved four present and past senior staff, including finance director Chris Lucas, the SFO’s probe is believed not to be focusing on any individuals. A £3.5bn investment from Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan - a member of Abu Dhabi’s royal family - is not part of the investigation. This latest move will increase pressure on Barclays, especially after the SFO had already opened a criminal investigation into the Libor scandal. Bob Diamond quit as Barclays boss in July amid

31 August - 06 September 2012

the scandal, and Mr Jenkins assumes the bank’s top job during one of the most turbulent periods in its history. This includes a £290m fine by UK and US regulators for manipulating Libor, an interbank lending rate which affects mortgages and loans. Mr Jenkins’ retail banking background sends a signal that the bank wants to move away from the controversy relating to its “casino” or investment banking past. Barclays says his total money package - £1.1m and a bonus up to a maximum of 250% of salary - equates to a 25% reduction on Mr Diamond’s

arrangements. Mr Jenkins said: “I am very proud to have been asked to lead Barclays, where I began my career nearly 30 years ago. “Barclays is a strong universal bank, with many assets, including market-leading businesses. But we have made serious mistakes in recent years and clearly failed to keep pace with our stakeholders’ expectations. “We have an obligation to all those stakeholders customers, clients, shareholders, colleagues and broader society - and a unique opportunity to restore Barclays reputation.”

up with yoga!

FORMER Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Russell Brand are dueting on yoga mats. And romance appears to be in the air as well. The Sun newspaper has reported that the couple, said to be dating after meeting at the Olympics closing ceremony - in which they both took part - both love one yoga position in particular,. That is known as asana, which involves sitting still, and a friend said: ”Geri says they have a spiritual

connection through yoga, and they practise asana together. “Russell is known for action between the sheets, but he is actually very good at just sitting still, in silence. “It is something that has acted as a bond for him and Geri as their relationship blossoms.” Geri has released two yoga DVDs, while Russell met his previous girlfriend at yoga classes in the US. Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror says their first date was a romantic picnic on London’s Hampstead Heath, days after the Olympics ended.

California's killer mice disease has now claimed two THE possibility of an outbreak of a rare, mice-borne disease called hantavirus looms in a Californian public park following the death of a second person. Officials at Yosemite National Park are warning past visitors to be aware of symptoms like flu-like aches, fever and dizziness. Health officials learned last weekend of the second hantavirus death, which killed a person who visited the park in June, according to spokesman Scott Gediman. There is one other confirmed case of the illness, and Park officials are appealing to people who stayed in tent cabins at Curry Village, from mid-June through to the end of August, to beware of any symptoms of hantavirus. It can develop up to five weeks after exposure to

Page 14

urine, droppings or saliva of infected mice. There is no specific treatment for the virus, and about one-third of people who contract it will die. Fortunately, there is also no evidence that the disease spreads from one person to another. It was not clear how many people stayed in the 408 tent cabins from which people became ill during the relative period when the warning was issued. Contractors are working on the cabins to protect park-goers, and Mr Gediman said: “They’re doing everything they can to eliminate areas where mice can get into the cabins. “This was never because the cabins were dirty; it was never because we didn’t take care of them. “This is just because approximately 20% of all deer mice are infected with hantavirus. And they’re here in Yosemite Valley.”

Cardin fashions a towering landscape RENOWNED fashion designer Pierre Cardin plans to build a huge tower, nearly five times the height of the Tower of Pisa, in the famous Venice lagoon. The Frenchman’s building, to be called the Palais Lumiere, will stand 255 metres (837ft) tall, but it has already caused anguish because some people fear it will be a blot on the landscape. Yet Cardin, who studied architecture in his younger days, stresses that the tower “will not be visible from Venice”. He chose the city of canals for the project because he was born there, and because, he said, there was no space in Paris for his work of wonder. The 90-year-old wants to “offer Venice a big garden party for eternity”, and hopes it will be completed in time for the 2015 Milan Expo. The 65-floor tower in Porto Marghera will be constructed

on a mammoth site currently occupied by warehouses, which will have to be cleansed of industrial chemicals. It would house an array of restaurants, apartments, hotels and research centres, as well as sport installations

on an area of 250,000 square metres (2.7sqft). The impressive project requires a gigantic budget, estimated at between 1.52bn euros (£1.2-1.6bn). Cardin said the scheme will create at least 5,000 jobs, and

his nephew, Rodrigo Basilicati, will head the scheme. The veteran designer has unveiled a public exhibition to outline the project in detail (www.palaislumiere.eu), and the show will run until 25th November.

Strauss steps down, and might MICROSOFT: be batting for the Tories next! It's gone from wavy to square ANDREW STRAUSS, one of England’s most illustrious cricketers and captain of the Test team, announced his immediate retirement on Wednesday. The 35-year-old, who steered England to the No1 spot in the world and won the Ashes against Australia at home and away, said his decision was motivated by a drop in his batting form. It is believed that Strauss will now seek a place in Parliament as Tory MP for Corby following Louise Mench’s surprise resignation. Last year, Strauss helped raise £25,000 for the Conservatives by offering himself as a golf partner at a fund-raising party. During a special press conference at Lord’s, he denied his shock decision was related to the furore over Kevin Pietersen, who was dropped from the side weeks ago after texting some South African players during the Test which ended England’s reign on top.

“I haven’t batted well for a long time now.” He told stunned reporters. “ I knew with my own energy levels and motivation that I wasn’t going to improve, battingwise. But it’s a hugely sad moment in many ways.” He added: “I am extremely proud of everything I have achieved as a cricketer, and I have found myself very fortunate to play in an era when some of English cricket’s greatest moments have occurred. I have loved every minute of it. “I would like to go out on my own terms, with my head held high, and I think this is the right time.”

31 August - 06 September 2012

Essex star Alastair Cook, already England’s one-day captain and Strauss’s opening partner in Test cricket, was announced immediately as the new skipper. .Strauss stressed that the Pietersen “incident” did not contribute to his decision, which had been made, he said, before the saga erupted earlier this summer. The unsavoury incident caused stress within the team after Pietersen, a born and bred South African, admitted sending controversial texts, criticising Strauss and coach Andy Flower, to his pals in the South African team. But Strauss said:“I first spoke

to Andy about it prior to the Kevin Pietersen incident rearing its head. It just hasn’t been a consideration at all. It was one of those decisions you know in your heart.” Former England captain Mike Atherton said his departure might make it more difficult for Pietersen to be recalled to the England team. He told Sky News: “There will be a perception out there, although it may be a false one, that Pietersen has had something to do with his decision to retire, and that may harden some of the players’ views against him.” Cook told reporters: I’ve got huge boots to fill. He has been a fantastic captain. He has led from the front for 3½ years and is a true ambassador for the game.” David Collier, England Cricket Board’s Chief Executive, said: “Strauss has shown tremendous integrity, dedication and commitment, both on and off the field. “His legacy within the game will be felt for many years, to come and we now need to build on the progress we have made under his leadership.”

MICROSOFT has unveiled a new corporate logo - its first revamp for 25 years - to help publicise its forthcoming Windows 8 operating platform.

The new logo also sets the stage for a wave of products to show the world’s largest software-maker in a new light. It features a symbol featuring four separate coloured squares, next to the name of the company - much like the old Windows logo featuring wavy squares. A spokeswoman said: “It is the first time the company has accompanied its logo with a symbol.” The new logo has also been introduced to create awareness for its first tablet computer, called Surface. The company is also hoping to gain ground in the smartphone market. Jeff Hansen, Microsoft

brand strategy manager, said: “Now is the perfect time for a change. This is an incredibly exciting year for Microsoft as we prepare to release new versions of nearly all of our products. “From Windows 8 to Windows Phone 8 to Xbox services to the next version of Office, you will see a common look and feel across these products. “This wave of new releases is not only a re-imagining of our most popular products, but also represents a new era for Microsoft, so our logo should evolve to accentuate this new beginning visually.” This is Microsoft’s fifth logo since Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded the company 37 years ago. When it last changed its logo in 1987, Microsoft had been a publicly traded company for less than a year and boasted a market value of about £1.3 billion. It peaked at more than £379m in 1999, but its current market value is less that half of Apple’s £393bn.

Tragic Banto in safe hands now

Every hour is happy hour at the Silencio Vet Centre

STAFF at Accion del Sol were horrified to see one of the worst cases of dog cruelty imaginable in the past week.

This tragic, six-month-old puppy was brought into the refuge after being badly treated by his owners. His name is Banto and, hopefully, with lots of tender, loving care and veterinary treatment, he will soon make a good recovery from his horrific injuries. Then he can start looking forward to finding a new home, where he can learn to trust humans again. How anyone can inflict so

much pain and suffering on a defenceless animal, who will spend his whole life giving

31 August - 06 September 2012

unconditional love, is beyond belief. On a happier note, Debbie Parkinson adopted this lovely dog from the Accion refuge a few months ago and named her Ruby Chewsday. Ruby had her first introduction to horses at the weekend when she met Richard Ellis and Cookie at a local horse show in Fanabe. Her expression was a picture because she wasn’t quite sure whether or not it was a very large dog!

WALK into most veterinary surgeries and you’ll probably see a row of glum faces - belonging to animals and their owners! But at the Vet Centre in Costa del Silencio, staff, people and even the animals seem to be wearing permanent smiles. It’s no wonder, really, because vets and business partners Valeria Candia and Florencia Marinelli are genuinely happy women, who radiate affection for all their visitors. “We spend a lot of time here and we try to make it a happy place for everyone,” said Valeria, who met Florencia when they were working for an Adeje vet. By coincidence, both are from Argentina, which is where they studied to become vets - Valeria in Buenos Aires and Florencia in Rio Cuerto, Cordobo. In 2010, after working together for two years and becoming good pals, they decided to open their own business. After hunting around for suitable premises, they came across a huge shell of a building near the Spar supermarket, just before the Las Galletas T-junction.

“It was perfect for what we wanted,” said Valeria. “We could picture ourselves putting up walls to create various rooms, and that is what we did.” “It took a good while, but we have been here nearly two years and we’ll be having a second anniversary party for the staff on 9th September. That is when the girls opened the doors for the first time, and it wasn’t long before customers were flocking there. “We researched the area well and discovered that there was only one vet, based in Las Galletas,” said Valeria.“It seemed an ideal location for us, and so it has proved.” And it is not just by luck that they have proved so popular with pet owners. They had built up quite a reputation for themselves in Adeje, and it wasn’t long before former clients were turning up on their doorstep. “It gave us a good start, and we now cater for all nationalities, especially South Americans, Spanish and British,” said Valeria. “In the winter, when the German and Belgian swallows come over, they often bring their pets, and we look after them as well.” Inside the premises, apart from a surgery for cats and dogs, and various

other creatures, including hedgehogs, birds and rabbits, etc, there is a laboratory for blood testing and various ailments. There is also an examination room, an operating theatre for the seriously ill plus a comfortable recovery room for them. And there’s even an office, kitchen and bathroom for the staff themselves! Apart from Florencia, 31, and 39-year-old Valareria, who is married with two young children, Wilfrido is also on the staff as an auxiliary vet, and Lidia, a voluntary worker, is hoping to follow in their footsteps. And should a dolphin just happen to come into the Vet Centre for advice, Lidia is the woman to see because she just happens to be a dolphin trainer at Aqualand! Her heart is set on working in a veterinary surgery in the long term, but for now she is happy combining her work at Aqualand with the Vet Centre. Florencia said: “We not sure what to expect when we first opened here, but the response has been excellent and we are gaining more and more customers by the month. “That’s not the only reason why we are happy, but it is a good feeling that people like to bring their pets to us.”

Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs ITV1, 20.00 “Today is my first day with the team at Battersea and I just have to remember one thing. There’s no room at the O’Grady household for any more animals…Don’t let me have anything – no matter how much I plead and beg.” As the proud owner of three rescue dogs, Louis, Olga and Bullseye, PAUL O’GRADY truly knows the value of man’s best friend. An animal-lover through and through, he leaves his beloved pets at home to embark on the experience of a lifetime, to present the ups and downs of life at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, one of the UK’s best-loved charities for more than 150 years. There is nowhere quite like Battersea - funny, emotional, tear jerking, uplifting and inspiring in equal measure. Paul meets the dogs who come into the home needing treatment, training and ultimately new homes. Every dog has its own story and each dog needs a new place they can call home. EPISODE ONE: It’s Paul’s first week at Battersea. As well as dealing with the temptation to adopt every dog he meets, Paul helps with the arrival of an adorable litter of puppies. He’s then devastated to meet Sparkle, a mistreated Staffie who was found in a London park, dangerously underweight. Paul says “We’re supposed to be a nation of animal lovers, and you look at this. Makes me mad, actually… It’s just too much, I’m going to have to go, I can’t watch her, it’s too sad.” The clinic staff worry whether she’ll survive, but thanks to their specialist care she soon starts to put on weight, and just a few weeks later Paul is able to hand her over to a new family. Paul also helps the Battersea rehoming staff interview a potential new family for Bonzo – a Jack Russell pup. The family in question is Dr Neil Fox and his kids, but unsurprisingly Paul’s taken a shine to Bonzo himself, so Neil’s interview doesn’t go quite as planned. In this episode Paul also meets the new love of his life – a big, white Boxer called Carmine, brought in because he was too big and boisterous for his old owners. Paul explains:“When I first came in here I said to myself you’re not going to get fond of any dogs O’Grady. But there’s one, there’s one who’s touched my heart…he slobbers, he drools, he moults, he looks like the back end of a bus. Just my type…I know I shouldn’t have favourites, but it’s no good, I’m in love.”

Our War BBC 3, 21.00 Using soldier shot footage Our War follows a small platoon of Welsh Guards posted deep behind enemy lines in the remote fort of Haji Alem. Their charismatic commander Lieutenant Mark Evison kept a detailed diary covering the last three weeks of his life. Describing how equipment shortages might impact on his isolated platoon Evison recorded: “ Injuries will be sustained which I will not be able to treat and deaths could occur which could have been stopped. “ His worst fears were realised when, after he was shot, there was a delay in the helicopter evacuation caused by a lack of working radios and compounded by a series of operational errors. Filming on helmetcam Lance Bombardier Andrew Spooner captures the men’s panic as they desperately try to save Mark while under attack. Gunner Steve Gadsby was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross for running with Mark on his back across a narrow bridge under heavy fire in order to get him back to camp.

Their first challenge is a mystery box test, the infamous test of imagination and creativity in which the celebrities are presented with a range of ingredients. Tonight's mystery box contents include cuttlefish, chorizo, rice, mango and butternut squash. With only 50 minutes to create their dish, they will have to keep their composure and think fast if they're to impress the judges. But there's no time for complacency, as the contestants face their second challenge of the day, a daunting skills test in which they are tasked with making crepes suzette in only 10 minutes. With the pressure on the celebrities, they deliver lessthan-orthodox techniques, much to the amusement of the judges.

Entertainment in Tenerife Email: john.ashford@canarianweekly.com

All that jazz ELAINE ALEXANDER comes from a very musical background. Cousin Tommy Smith is a jazz musician, winning many important events all over the world, and her brother is a pianist.

Her mother was a jazz singer in Edinburgh, and now gives singing classes to kids at Ritmania Dance School, in Los Cristianos. Elaine’s seven-year-old son, Bradley, also a budding pianist, has played at the Auditorio Tenerife. Elaine sings in eight languages and has appeared on Spanish TV on numerous occasions. Her impressive list of gigs is as follows: Mondays: 9pm - Margarita’s; 11.15 - Brahms & Liszt, Parque de la Paz Tuesdays: 10pm - Vulcano Hotel; 11.15 - Divine, Fañabe Wednesdays: 10pm - Divine, Fañabe Thursdays: 9pm - Margarita’s; 11 - Bar Canario Fridays: 9.30pm - Soul Suite, Parque de la Paz; 11 - Divine, Fañabe Saturdays: 5.30pm Azafran, Los Gigantes; alternately, 9.45 - Bitacora Hotel; 9.15 - Bahia Princess; 11 - Mikey’s Bar Sundays: 9.30pm - Soul Suite, Parque de la Paz; 11pm - Shambles, Los Cristianos The other Elton … ELTON LODEWYK was born in Cape Town, the youngest of five children. He began singing at the age of 12, which led to him touring all over South Africa with the Stellenbosch Children choir, including performances for

Page 30

Nelson Mandela. He entered the Yamaha Young Talent contest in 2004 and was Western Cape’s overall winner in the songwriting, piano and singing category. Elton was runner-up in the South African Finals with his original song Baby Love. He is also an experienced cocktail-bar pianist, available for restaurants, functions, weddings and corporate events.

He has a wide repertoire, which includes light classical, jazz, standards and pop ballads. His current gig list is as follows: Mondays: 11pm - Volare, Golf del Sur Tuesdays: 10.15pm - Divine, Fañabe Thursdays: 10pm - Colon Beach, Puerto Colon Joining up the dots PETER Taylor-Young started in Clubland 40 years ago, travelling the length and breadth of the UK. In those days, they were one-week deals, and each act had to supply the dots (music manuscripts) for anything up to 10 resident musicians per venue. How times have changed! In 1980, he was approached to do the TV talent show Search for a Star, his old pal Cy

Benson having debuted the year before. On the strength of that appearance came theatre tours with such headliners as Freddie Starr, Cilla Black - and the then politically-correct Jim Davidson. A short while later, Peter was asked to come to Tenerife for a one-off show for the Lions he didn’t go home! At the moment, Peter is working in South Africa and, presumably, surrounded by lions of a different breed, but we hope to see him back here soon. Go compère! JAMIE DREW started out at the tender age of 16 playing drums in a Working-men’s club in Nottingham before joining the Army. After leaving the service at 27, he started working on the cruise liners as permanent staff; first as lead production singer on the MS Emerald for Thomsons, and then Airtours. He did a short stint in the UK doing holiday parks and clubs, but he then decided to give Tenerife a try - and he’s never looked back. His time here has seen him compère at Blaydon Races, Harlequins, Lazy Daze, The Full Monty, and now the Brewers Droop.

But neither Carl nor Molly expect the trail of havoc that follows in Dupree's wake.

W C CHOICE

The special is a tribute to the 1970’s cop series that defined both the era and the genre. The show features interviews with superstar Ray Winstone and Nick Love, the director of the new movie version of The Sweeney, as well as all the key characters from the original series, including actors Dennis ‘Sgt George Carter’ Waterman; John Thaw’s widow Sheila Hancock, Lynda Bellingham, Alan Ford, Billy Murray and real Flying squad officers from the seventies. Ray Winstone, who actually appeared in the original series as a teenager in a non- speaking role, described the series as “the programme of the time”. He added, “The great thing about The Sweeney is that they didn’t always win.You never knew until the end whether they were going to get away with it or if the police were going to catch them that’s what made you want to go and watch again next week”. The show has also unearthed out-takes and behind the scenes material from the series and shot revealing interviews with producers, directors, writers and original production crew. Executive Producer John Quinn added:“it’s a word bandied about all too often, but The Sweeney genuinely is an iconic series. It broke new ground - the way it was shot, the realism it conveyed, the fact that the bad guys didn’t always get caught. It also made anyone whose dad had a Ford Granada the coolest kid in school.”

Cookery series in which some of the country's best amateur bakers test their skills. All the challenges are devised by cookery writer and baker Mary Berry and master baker Paul Hollywood, who are also on hand to judge and taste the contestants' efforts. The bakers face three challenges all designed for a sweet tooth. Starting off with a tempting array of decadently rich tortes, the bakers then face the technical challenge. This time it is a mainstay of French baking, the creme caramel, and for some there's more wobble than expected. Proceedings are rounded off with a mammoth six hour challenge to produce a mighty showstopping layered meringue.

ITV1 , 21.00 ‘Mrs Biggs’ is the true story of the woman behind Britain’s most famous villain, Great Train Robber Ronald Biggs. Over five, hour-long episodes we go on an astonishing journey with her, from naïve young woman to reluctant gangster’s moll; from a stifling, choking life at the hands of an overbearing father, to the joy of freedom and motherhood. ‘Mrs Biggs’ gives us the inside story on one of the most infamous crimes of the twentieth century; but more than anything it is a sweeping love story told across three decades and from one side of the world to the other. Charmian Brent is a young girl on a train. Unable to take up the place she won at university because her father has refused to support her any more, she works as a clerk at a bullion dealer’s in Soho. Frustrated and disillusioned with life, she is chatted up on the train by Ron Biggs, a tall handsome Londoner nearly ten years her senior. He conceals that he is actually a carpenter by wearing smart clothes and carrying his tools in a briefcase. But Charmian is smitten, and they start dating. When her father Bernard finds out that Ron has convictions for petty crimes he hits the roof, forbidding Charmian to see him any more. But the young couple decide to elope with £200 Ron has forced her to steal from her employers to fund their escape. They hide out on the Dorset coast but are eventually caught after a dramatic car chase and pursuit through a forest. Ron is given six months imprisonment, Charmian a suspended sentence. She waits for him and when he is released she becomes pregnant to force her father to consent to her getting married. Charmian gives her whole life to Ron but asks only that he never becomes involved in crime again. Ron agrees and, for a while, life settles down into domestic bliss. They have two sons in quick succession and Ron’s building business is doing well. The only cloud on the horizon is that their rented home is about to be sold. They have first refusal but need to scrape together £500 for the deposit. All their money is tied up in the business so, desperate, Ron goes to see an old friend to ask if he can borrow it. The friend is Bruce Reynolds, at that moment planning the biggest robbery in British history. Reynolds’ money is tied up in a plan to rob a Royal Mail train, packed with used bank notes, on its journey down from Glasgow to London. He offers Ron a place on the job but Ron refuses. Reynolds learns Ron is friendly with Peter, a retired train driver - the missing piece of the jigsaw for Reynolds’ master plan. He offers Ron £40,000 to bring Peter in on the job and Ron’s resistance is worn down. The episode concludes as Ron, Peter and Reynolds’ gang head towards the location where the heist is to take place.

Top Dog Model ITV2, 20.00 The hunt is on to find Britain’s coolest canine in a brand new show for ITV2, Top Dog Model. Television’s favorite Stacey Solomon, fashion model Lilah Parsons and Hollywood dog agent Addison Witt search for Britain’s most mutterly gorgeous dog with help from guest judge, Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh and Pudsey and voiced by David Walliams. The show brings the glamorous world of modelling together with Britain’s love of dogs. Top Dog Model seeks to find a true doggie star - the new Cindy Pawford, Claudia Sniffer, Naomi Spaniel or Elle Macfurson perhaps. The pooches will go head-to-head as they are tested for their suitability as models through a series of dog-eat-dog modeling assignments, including photo and video shoots as well as challenges designed to test their poise and behaviour. It’s not just looks alone that will crown our furry favourite, as personality and star quality will need to shine through too. The contest is hotting up as only one mutterly gorgeous dog will land an advertising campaign for a well-known international brand. Episode one sees dogs of all breeds, colours, shapes and sizes arrive from across the country for the first stage of auditions to strut their stuff in front of our judges. One by one the dogs and their owners meet the judges to see who has the necessary bow-wow factor. It’s down to the judges to decide which are the best to be chosen to attend an exclusive Paw Camp. The judges see endless entertainment from the dogs, but who will they want to see more of? They see lots of amazing unique tricks, a musical performance, a dog that plays the piano, an owner who gives his gigantic dog a piggy back and the judges even get a royal visit. The judges are tough but who will get their seal of approval and make it through to the next stage and head to Paw Camp. The dog owners believe their prized pet has the star quality to make it all the way to the end. They are in it to win it but which pooch has what it takes to be top dog above the rest? There will be weekly eliminations by our expert panel of judges who will analyse the hounds’ hottest headshots and eliminate the weakest performer, ultimately leading to one lucky dog being crowned the country’s Top Dog Model.

Four ordinary women with an extraordinary flair for code-breaking and razor-sharp intelligence skills are the focus of ITV’s new murder mystery drama, The Bletchley Circle. EPISODE ONE: 1943 - Bletchley Park Inside one of the machine huts Susan (Anna Maxwell Martin) is analysing reams of decrypted German data when suddenly something catches her eye. For anyone else, it would be lost in the confusion, but Susan’s specialty is patterns, and she thinks she’s seen one here. Checking the details with Millie (Rachael Stirling) and Lucy (Sophie Rundle) they confirm her initial thoughts; she believes she has spotted a code for German battle orders within the cipher. Jean (Julie Graham) instructs Susan to take it straight to the top, to the Colonel, and the women wait anxiously for Susan to return. Some hours later Susan rejoins the group and tells them that their theory was correct - the British troops now know where the next German battle is going to take place. May 1952 - London Nine years later and Susan is now a housewife, married to Timothy (Mark Dexter) and mother to their two children. Her code-breaking days at Bletchley Park are a distant memory. But when Susan thinks she has spotted a pattern in a string of murders happening in London, it’s clear that her mind is still as sharp as ever. Susan approaches Timothy about taking her theory to the police. Timothy is shocked that his wife is concerning herself with such awful business but eventually agrees to help her meet with the Deputy Commissioner of Scotland Yard, Wainwright (Michael Gould), who he served with in the war. Susan meets with Wainwright and explains her pattern to him. She explains that although four girls have been found, she believes there is another missing girl whose body has not yet been discovered. Although at first cynical, Wainwright soon becomes intrigued by Susan’s noticeable intellect and realises that she must have done more than just clerical work in the war. Wainwright instructs his men to search the area that Susan has pinpointed. But the police return empty handed, no missing girl is found, and Susan is forced to return home. Feeling upset and defeated, Susan takes down all of the newspaper cuttings and information she had collected in secret on the murders, and burns them. When she comes across a picture of Millie, Lucy and herself, taken at Bletchley Park, she stops. The words ‘Never be ordinary’ are written on the back and this strikes a chord with Susan. She decides to contact her old friends from Bletchley and bring together their skills to catch the serial killer before he strikes again. Susan and the women meet under the guise of a ‘Philosophy and Literature club’ and Susan explains why she has brought them all together. Initially Lucy and Jean are reluctant to get involved, it’s incredibly dangerous and something the police are dealing with. The women leave Susan’s house with no plans to carry on Susan’s investigation into the murders or even meet up again. But just as Susan predicted, another girl, Mary Lawrence, goes missing, and the women all realise they cannot stand by and do nothing. Susan, Millie, Jean and Lucy set about finding Mary Lawrence before its too late. Treating the crimes like a code to be cracked, the women gather all the information and evidence they can find. They obtain the full mortuary reports of the murdered girls and discover that they weren’t just murdered; they were murdered and then raped. Then through a sequence of clever deductions relating to the location of the bodies, the dates and times they were found and the journeys they were making on the day they died, the women realise that the killer is using the rail network to find his victims. By following the pattern the killer has been making and by cross-correlating their train data, the women work out where the missing girl, Mary Lawrence, must have been taken. Will they reach her in time to save her before the killer claims his fifth victim?

Wartime Farm BBC2, 20.00 In a new eight-part series, historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn take on their biggest challenge yet - to turn back the clock and run Manor Farm exactly as it would have been during the Second World War. They will face one of the biggest challenges ever seen in the history of the British countryside - what Churchill called ‘the frontline of freedom’. As well as tackling the trials of day to day living in volatile times, the team will be managing livestock, attempting to cultivate unused land, tackling new tools and technologies and learning the basics of civil defence, while all the time confronting shortages. The first episode finds the farmers in a new location, a new time period and with a new team member. There is a farmhouse to modernise, strict new rules to abide by and air raid precautions to contend with. The team begin by reclaiming land to grow new crops, whilst Peter works with a blacksmith to design a special 'mole plough' to help drain the waterlogged clay fields. Meanwhile Ruth and Alex get to grips with a troublesome wartime tractor - and must plough through the night to get the wheat crop sown in time. During World War II farmers were tasked with the massive job of doubling food production, but their detailed knowledge of the landscape also made them ideal recruits for one of the war’s most secret organisations – the ‘Auxiliary Units’, a British resistance force trained to use guerrilla tactics against German invasion.

Home WE’RE all going on a summer holiday, no more Facebook for a week or two! As Blur once said, modern life is rubbish, so ditch the GPS and go retro with these low-fi holiday habits, from postcards to paperbacks. 1. Postcards v. Facebook ‘Another sunny day swimming with dolphins and hanging out with hot models…’ Ok, thanks for that. Meanwhile, you’ve had a crap day at the office and are stuck on the Tube with your face in someone’s armpit. Making friends, colleagues and perfect strangers jealous, sorry, keeping them updated when we’re on our hols is the in-thing these days. But what of the poor, forgotten postcard? Remember how happy your gran was to receive your card from Bournemouth? She’s not on Facebook, so pack a pen and tell her how the weather’s lovely. It won’t get there until you’ve been back two weeks, your tan has faded and your colleague is posting sickeningly happy updates on Facebook from their holiday in Barbados but, more importantly, your gran will be happy. 2. Maps v. GPS Where the heck are we? In these days of SatNav and GPS, we no longer get lost and have arguments with our other halves over why they didn’t ask someone for directions to the hotel. But what’s a holiday without arguments? Switch off the GPS and head into the wilds, or a mind-boggling old town, armed with an old-fashioned map. Finding your way down off a mountain, or out of a dangerous downtown before dark doesn’t depend on battery life. Invest in a waterproof map that won’t get tangled trying to fold back into place (and doubles as a makeshift football). Or for night time navigation, you could look to the stars

Retro chic

for guidance. Romantic, free, and quite possibly stupid, this is probably best left to Bear Grylls. 3. Locals v. Twitter From avoiding ripoff merchants hawking overpriced souvenirs to finding the best tapas in town, insider tips can make all the difference to your trip. So it’s tempting to draw on the fountain of knowledge provided by Twitter. Ask for advice and a member of the Twitterati is sure to point you in the direction of locals’ favourite hang-outs. But what if they’re lying? What if you’ve left your phone on the plane and your hotel charges £20 a day for WiFi? Ask a real person. Local knowledge can only really belong to locals, so pick one and pose your question: “Er, excusezmoi, monsieur, ou sont les toilettes? You’ll (probably) get an honest answer, although not necessarily in a language you understand (there’s always charades). You might even make a friend, and you can’t do that on Twitter. 4. Paperback v. Kindle Yes, the Kindle is lightweight, it holds hundreds of titles, you can read Fifty Shades Darker without anyone knowing, and it won’t get soggy when the kids dive-bomb the pool. Even the most traditional of travellers can’t deny its revolutionary suitcase space-saving brilliance. But, you have to switch it off during take-off and landing (otherwise the plane will crash – or will it?), you can’t read it in bright sunshine and you can’t show off that you’re reading Dostoevsky over breakfast. The humble paperback still has a lot on the Kindle. If someone nicks your handbag while you’re having a swim or chatting up the barman, all you’ve lost is your third-hand copy of The Da Vinci Code. You can pick up a replacement for 50p in a charity shop. 5. Live music v. iPod

Every backpacker worth their salt packs their iPod and their speakers along with their hair straighteners. Now you can take the party, and the dream set list, pretty much wherever you go, so you can blast out a bit of Beethoven over the barrios of Buenos Aires from your hostel rooftop or pump up the volume with a spot of Sadé at your Vegas pool party. But how often do you listen to live music? If big gigs are your style, then there might be a chart-topper in town so check the listings. But venture beyond your usual playlist and try to catch a performance of something different, be it calypso in Caracas or fado in Lisbon. Wander the streets at 2am in a strange city and you may well stumble upon a bar or club showcasing traditional music by local performers. 6. Disposable camera v.

Instagram Thanks to Instagram, we can now select, edit and add cool hipster filters to all our holiday snaps. Then you can share them with the world instantly. ‘Check me, I’m in Nando’s’. Yeah, well done. But remember the days when you couldn’t delete those embarrassing pictures? The excited anticipation of waiting for your photos to arrive in the post, only to find you had your finger over the lens for half the film? Recapture the surprise element in capturing the moment with a disposable camera. You won’t have to purposefully make your photos look like they were taken in 1977, the cheap plastic lenses will do that for you! They won’t be picture perfect, but you’ll definitely see your holiday from a different angle. Source skyscanner.net

21 million UK homes say yes to the internet THERE are now 21 million UK households supplied with the internet, which is a 3% increase on last year. It means that around 80% of British homes have access to the web, according to the Office for National Statistics, which is up 23% since 2006, when comparable records began. The new data also show that two-thirds of adults use a computer every day. Yet 5.2 million households across the UK still do not have a web connection, the most common reason given being that they “did not need it. One in five households did not have the internet because of a lack of computer skills, and the age of people in a household significantly determines the likelihood of it having internet access, says

the ONS. So it comes as no surprise that 91% of homes with children are online. This factor stands out when considering households of a single adult. Only 36% of homes occupied by just one adult, aged 65 years or over, are connected. This year, 93% of households with web access use a fixed broadband connection, and 30% of these have a cable or fibre-optic connection. The ONS says geography has a significant effect on the way in which households get online, with far more people in urban areas using cable and fibre-optic broadband connections than in rural communities. The report adds: “This suggests, unsurprisingly, that fibre-optic technology is being rolled out to urban communities earlier than rural areas as it can reach more people for the initial investment.”

On-line M&S hopes to make a new mark MARKS and Spencer is giving its staff iPads, alongside the launch of free, instore wi-fi, to help boost sales and improve customerrelations.

The company is trialling the internet at its new 50,000sq. ft flagship branch, which opened on Wednesday in Cheshire Oaks, near Liverpool,. It will have spread to all other stores by next May. The retailer also hopes that providing staff with iPads, to help people search for items, will win over customers new and old. Quick-response codes barcodes recognised by smartphones - will also be dotted around the new store for customers to scan and learn more about products and the shop. And there are 12 “Browse and Order” points at the branch The move follows the company’s drop in profits in May - its first in three years - as the tough, economic environment affected consumer spending. It led to concern among investors about the products on offer, and the leadership of chief

executive Marc Bolland many of whose ideas have been showcased at the new outlet. Mr Bolland hopes this focus on e-commerce will help re-engage customers with the brand by encouraging tech-savvy shoppers to spend more time and money at M&S. Retail director Steve Rowe says the Cheshire Oaks store represents the “future of retail”. He adds: “Our customers will find a fresh approach to shopping and customerservice, enhanced by interactive technology

that creates a truly unique consumer environment. “This store represents the future of retail - a dynamic, interactive space which will redefine what it is like to shop at M&S.” The home department of Marks introduces a new, “large format” look, and the technology drive is being led by Laura WadeGery, poached from rivals Tesco last year to run the M&S e-commerce business. She is keen to dispel the idea that the company’s core customer group those between the ages of

55-65 - have not embraced technology. More than 5% own a smartphone and one in three has an iPad or tablet, she said, adding: “Our customers are changing - and we have to change with them!” Ms Wade-Gery is overseeing considerable investment in technology, including £150m on replacing its existing website, and another £100m on new, instore gadgets. The group hopes to increase so-called multichannel revenues by between £300m-£500m by 2013-14.

BLUEBERRIES:

Seed pantry

they’re super BLUEBERRIES are expensive to buy, scare and when you find them they’re not always of the best quality, so why not grow your own. They are an easy-to-grow super food. Ideal for here as they make good plants for containers so you can get a reasonable crop whatever the size of your garden. Blueberries grow on bushes they can be evergreen or deciduous and usually grow to about 1.5m high. Blueberries require light, free-draining acidic soils, with plenty of rich, organic matter if they’re to thrive. The soil should have a lower pH of between 4 and 5.5, similar to the requirements of rhododendrons and camellias. It’s possible to lower the pH levels of your soil with sulphur chips or dust. However, they’ll need to be added three weeks before planting to take effect. Monitor the soil’s pH every few years, because it may be necessary to add acid. If you don’t have suitable soil,

simply grow blueberries in a pot containing ericaceous compost, giving the plants a high potash feed (such as tomato feed) occasionally during the growing season. Plant two different varieties of blueberries to ensure cross-pollination. A single blueberry plant will produce fruit, but the yields will be higher and the fruits bigger if more than one plant is grown. They require a position in full sun or light shade. Plant blueberries in autumn or winter leaving about 1.5m (5ft) gaps between them and mulch with a layer of acidic peat, wood chippings or pine needles. Water in well using rainwater rather than tap water if possible. Tap water

contains lime which renders the soil less acidic over time. Use nets to protect plants from birds in the fruiting season. Mulch each spring. Chipped up pine tree or pine needles are ideal mulches to place around plants because they’re fairly acidic. Water plants regularly. They require water from when their buds begin to show in spring until their leaves fall in autumn. Again, remember to use rainwater. Blueberry fruits, which are borne in clusters, ripen at different times. This could mean having to regularly pick the same bush over the ripening period. Fruits are ready to pick when they have turned a deep blue.

The fruit should easily pull away from the cluster when ripe. However, leave them on the bush for a few more days after they turn blue for a more intense and complex flavour. They must be picked or they’ll drop. Blueberries produce fruit on branches that were produced the previous year. For the first two or three years of a blueberry’s life it’s not necessary to prune it much, apart from keeping the plant tidy. After this, blueberries need regular pruning to maintain plant vigour and high quality berry production. Prune them between November and March when the plant is dormant. When pruning, take out any dead, dying and diseased wood. Locate the oldest canes and remove one or two at the base each year. Remove the old canes that don’t produce much fruit to make way for younger, more productive canes. Prune out low branches that will lie on the ground when laden with fruit and remove all twiggy wood on the ends of fruiting laterals. Source: BBC Gardening

DEAR CHRISTINE

from Robot, Los Cristianos answers your hair questions

Blown away! I NEVER thought I’d be writing a column about hairdryers, but a few of you seem to get a little stuck when it comes to knowing how to use one. It’s not just a case of plug in and away you go; you need to know what it’s doing to your hair. That’s because, as it is doing its job, your average hairdryer is capable of really damaging your hair if not used correctly. Nowadays, most of you seem to use salon-type hairdryers, but all too often I see the result: scorched and frazzled hair. Okay, so how bad can it get? Well, your hairdryer normally has two switches: one for the speed and the other for heat. The speed control can be used on the faster setting if you are just rough-drying your hair or removing moisture. If blow-drying, try to use the slower speed so as not to dry the hair too quickly and, thus, creating a smoother finish. Your heat control operates by the same method, so use the hotter setting to dry off the hair, then the cooler one to blow-dry with. Yes, I know we use the fastest and the hottest in the salon, but we have much more control of the hairdryer. Another point to remember when drying your hair is to try to keep the dryer moving at all times. Never hold it on one section of your hair as this will scorch it. Also, never use the nozzles provided with your hairdryer because these double the heat intensity and WILL burn your hair. Yes, again I admit, we do use

Page 40

these in the salon, but we control the heat and always keep the dryer moving in order not to scorch the hair. But it’s a little more difficult when doing this at home. If your dryer comes with a diffuser (as pictured), then feel free to use this as it’s the gentlest form of drying curly or wavy hair. It is worth while noting that it’s often better to purchase a more expensive dryer, which will last you years, than a cheap one. That won’t be as powerful and definitely won’t last as long. Don’t wrap your cord around the dryer, either, as this will put a strain on the connection and could cause the dryer to break, Also, make sure that you clean the filter when needed to maintain a good air-flow. Last, and by no means least, “What’s the little cool-shot button for?” I get asked this question so often and the answer is simple. It cuts off the heat quickly, cooling down the section you have just dried. This sets the hair in place and smoothes it out. Once released, the dryer goes back to the tempera-

ture of before, so watch out if you’re using the high-heat setting. As with all heat appliances, especially here in the Tenerife sun, always use a heat-protection spray on your hair. This will stop you overdoing the heat and keep your hair well-moisturised. When blow-drying your hair, it is good to remember that you don’t have to blow-dry it from wet through. Hair doesn’t take shape around a brush until 80% dry. So dry your hair off quickly until it’s damp and then start. Better still, leave it to dry naturally for a while and then start, because the least heat you apply to your hair, the better. If all you are doing is straightening your hair, then don’t blow-dry with a brush first. Just shake a dryer over it until 90% dry, and then iron. It goes just as straight but with less damage to the hair. So now you are up on all the info about your hairdryer, treat it with respect and don’t abuse it. Otherwise, you may need a few more inches off the next time you visit your salon.

Your resident Agony Aunt Email: agony.aunt@canarianweekly.com Dear Christine, Ever since I spilled a cup of coffee on one of my boss’s clients, I am overcome with nerves and can’t stop my hands from shaking whenever I have to serve coffee up now. It’s embarrassing for me and my boss - and it’s getting much worse. I try telling myself how stupid I am, but it doesn’t work. Is there anything I can do to stop these nerves? I love my job, but am now thinking of looking for a new one. But maybe the same thing will happen again. Please help. LF. I’m sorry to hear that you’re feeling so anxious, so here are a couple of techniques to help to recover your confidence. Find five minutes to sit quietly on your own, and then close your eyes and think of all the thousands of times you have successfully made coffee and carried it through. Think of all those tea-breaks, your breakfasts, your lunches and evening meals. You’ll have carried out this action with no problem thousands of times. Presumably, you will also have made lots of coffee for previous clients and managed okay. The more you think of occasions that show you can do this, the faster your confidence will return. Now consider the realities of this one-off hiccup. Your boss may have been cross, but has he given you the sack? No! Has he said: “You’re not good enough for this job?” No! He thinks you can do it just fine, because you can. Is he going to reject you? No he’s not. Are you good enough? Yes you are. Are you willing to track down the negative thoughts you have about yourself? Take a piece of A4 paper and draw a line down the middle of it. On the left-hand side, you can note those bad thoughts down briefly. It helps to separate thoughts from feelings, and it’s the thoughts you’re after. On the right-hand side, look for positive evidence that discounts the negatives. For example, if you’ve been thinking, “I’m not good enough so I’ll never get another job”, write beside it on the right-hand side, “I have these skills” - and list them. Having those skills means you’re employable after

all! All-or-nothing thinking distorts reality. It can be easy to fall into emotional reasoning which goes: “I feel embarrassed and useless, so, therefore, I must be embarrassing and useless, and everybody must see me that way.” The chances are they don’t! Most people are far more concerned about themselves than about other people! It’s also likely that other people have a less-distorted view of you and see the things you can do as well as the one error you have magnified out of all proportion. I hope you start to enjoy your job again. Most of all, I hope you learn to value yourself for the good person you are. Dear Christine, My husband and I have been married for five years and have had some real ups and downs, mainly because of my husband’s drinking and gambling. Earlier this year we were happier than we had been for a long time and our marriage was stronger than ever. Then, on our anniversary two weeks ago, he spoilt it and gambled away all our rent money after a drinking binge. I can’t seem to get over the hurt and betrayal this time and feel strongly that I should call it a day. But a part of me wonders whether I should just try to focus on my husband’s good points. Mrs G ou have my sympathy. Being married to someone with one addiction is bad enough, but two is even worse. You can see only two options - put up and shut up, or leave -but it could be worth considering a third. How about telling him

you’re not prepared to stay married if he keeps on drinking and gambling, and that if he’s willing to show he’ll be different, you’ll give him a trial period of, say, six months? The proof you’ll accept is that he’ll seek professional help to overcome his addictions. And in the meantime, you’ll take care of all the family money in an account from which he can’t make withdrawals - even if his salary is paid into it. There are several qualified private counsellors on the island, and Alcoholics Anonymous meets regularly at the Christian Fellowship Centre in Los Cristianos. The email address is aatenerife@ gmail.com, website www. alcoholicsanonymoustenerife. com There is a 24-hour helpline, too, on 630 478 448. You can also tell him about Gamblers Anonymous, which has a UK helpline on 0207 384 3040. The website address is www. gamblersanonymous.org.uk and has a section for partners of gamblers.

More care is taken over depressed children now THE recession has led to more and more children suffering from social dysfunction, withdrawal, and depression to seek professional help. Overall, there has been a 30% increase in the number of youngsters seeking advice over for mental health issues in Ireland over the last two years. National Mental Healthcare Conference chairman Dr Ian Gargan said, in advance of September’s annual meeting, that the economic collapse in Britain and Ireland had considerably increased stress in the home, impacting on parental relationships and, in turn, on their children. “In a recession, the stress experienced by children tends to increase significantly,” said the renowned Irish psychologist. “And we’re certainly seeing a corresponding escalation in those youngsters experiencing stress and mental health issues, who

are availing of services.” He added: “At our clinics, the numbers have increased by around 30% since 2010, and our big challenge is to respond to the different treatment needed by children. “As we know, Ireland has not been good to its children in the past, as evidenced by the Ryan Report. “However, the good news is that new and more effective treatments aimed specifically at children are being brought to the fore all the time. “They are often developed and pioneered here in Ireland, where many aspects of treatment are approaching world class. The challenge now is to make practitioners and parents aware of these new options.” The conference, which includes talks by many experts in the field, takes place on 27th September and will deal solely with the issues of children and young people.

Big cancer shock for old-timers - in 2040! A SURVEY funded by Macmillan Cancer Support has revealed that the number of pensioners with the disease will treble by 2040. If that is so, then 4.1 million over-65s will be living with cancer, compared with 1.3 million in 2010. The sharp rise could be attributable to a number of causes, such as an ageing population, increased incidence of cancer and increasing cancer survival rates, said the researchers at King’s College London. Professor Henrik Moller, one of the study authors, said: “The aim of this research is to provide long-term projections of cancer prevalence in the UK. “The research shows that large increases can be expected in the oldest age groups in the coming decades and, with this, an increased demand upon health services.” Ciaran Devane, Macmillan Cancer Support Chief Executive, said: “The care of older cancer patients is the ticking time-bomb for society. “These stark predictions

should act as a warning to the NHS and social-care providers of the problems ahead if older cancer patients are not offered the best treatment and support. “We have a moral duty to give people the best chance of beating cancer, regardless of their age. “For cancer survival to improve, older people must be given the right treatment at the correct level of intensity, together with the practical support to enable them to take it up.” He added: “The barriers to older people getting treatment must be tackled. If we don’t get this right now, many older people will be dying unnecessarily from cancer in the future.”

See your doctor at the first whiff of trouble! REALITY star Sharon Osbourne is calling for people to break the taboo on poo by talking more candidly about their bowel problems.

The former X Factor judge is backing a campaign to encourage British people to talk to health professionals if they notice any problems such as bleeding or loose stool for more than three weeks. Osbourne, who battled with bowel cancer herself, is backing the Department of Health’s Be Clear on Cancer campaign. “For goodness sake, we’ve all got a bum and we all poo, so get over it,” she said. “The sooner bowel cancer is caught, the more likely the chance of survival. “That is why everyone needs to just look out for the symptoms - and head straight to the doctor if you are worried about anything. Early detection could save your life.” Paul Burstow, the UK Government’s Care Services Minister, said: “No one likes thinking about cancer, or talking about poo. But the plain fact is that no one dies of embarrassment. “You can die of cancer if you don’t get an early diagnosis. So if you show any of the key symptoms, tell your GP. It could save your life. “Early diagnosis makes a huge difference to your chance of survival. That’s why we are building on the success of our recent national campaign, which led to more people getting checked out by their GPs. Dr Harpal Kumar, of Cancer Research UK, said: “Detecting bowel tumours early, before

they’ve had a chance to spread, can significantly stack the odds in the patient’s favour. “If people respond to this campaign, and take up bowel screening when invited to do so, we have a chance of pushing bowel cancer well down the league table of killers.

“We urge people to overcome their fear. For most, any symptoms will turn out to be nothing to worry about. But for those people with cancer, the earlier they go to their doctor, the more likely they are to survive.” A Department of Health survey found that one in

three people is embarrassed to talk to his or her doctor about toilet habits. Yet bowel cancer is England’s third most-common cancer and causes 13,200 deaths a year. About 34,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year, and the majority of them are over the age of 55.

El Corral del pollo de Adeje

It’s simply mouth-watering! IF you are looking for somewhere to dine out, with a price that suits your purse, plus excellent food and staff to match, then El Corral del Pollo de Adeje is the new place to be! The restaurant has been open since 1st August only but, with just a month gone, the owners are already enjoying full houses most days whether it be lunch or dinner. And that alone tells you just how fabulous the food is! It is owned by Tayo and Lindi, daughter of Pedro and Angeles, who opened the Oasis Restaurant - the original “chicken Shack” - in the old village of Adeje 50 years ago. That had a fantastic reputation, which speaks highly of this new venture because Tayo was the chef there, and he has now transferred his kitchen expertise to this new restaurant, The whole family have a part in taking care of you. They are extremely friendly and attentive -and there sole desire is to make your visit such a success that you will want to return. We went along this week because various friends of the office had recommended it, and it was a great surprise what a lovely night it turned out to be1 You can sit inside or outside on the terrace, but our choice was decided as the latter was full, and anyway, inside is airconditioned. We were shown to our table by Lindi, whom I had met on a previous occasion with her husband Tayo. They are a lovely, friendly couple, and we could see right from our arrival that they were going to make our night out a success. Lindi immediately took our drinks order and my colleague decided to try a typical Canarian white wine. I, of course, had still water as I was driving. There is no menu as it’s a variation of chicken dishes, either spicy or non-spicy. First to arrive was the fresh bread and home-made garlic butter, which was really tasty! Then came the salad - a fresh combination of home-grown tomatoes, onions and lettuce. I’m not a huge salad lover, but it was so fresh, with crispy lettuce, that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Finally, last to arrive was the crème de la crème - the famous “Adeje Chicken”, accompanied by a separate plate of chips. We had decided to try both types of the chicken and … well words failed me as the secret was in the coating,

Page 42

and that alone was delicious - a family recipe with mouth - watering tender chicken, cooked to perfection! We managed to have a chat with Lindi and Tayo during the evening. They told us they felt that, having worked in the family restaurant most of their lives, it was time for them to carry on the family tradition but to break out on their own. Already, with the terrific support they have experienced

from customers in these early days, they can see it was the right decision. After our abundance of chicken, we decided we couldn’t resist a dessert. There are two menus: special icecreams and home-made ones. I had to go for the white chocolate mousse, which was very light and absolutely delicious. My colleague tried the cranberry cheesecake, which

was home-made and again delicious. We finished with a coffee and a coffee liquor, home-made by Tayo and again, from a secret family recipe! I would recommend El Corral del Pollo to anyone as it represents great value for money, with a friendly atmosphere. And, most importantly, everything we ate was delicious. It is located in the Avenida

de Los Oceanos No 9, in the new part of Adeje but not far from the original village. To get there, take the original turn-off from the motorway and go up to the second roundabout, opposite the cemetery. Turn left and straight over and then, on the first junction, look to the right and there it is! The parking is excellent,which is important, and there’s a bus stop right over the road where two buses pass by regularly -

the 417 Los Cristianos to Guia de Isora route and the 473, which runs from Los Cristianos to Los Gigantes - and they are available up to 11.30pm. So, if you don’t fancy taking the car in order to enjoy the local wine, you can hop on a bus. To make sure of getting a table, give Tayo or Lindi a call on 922 775 841. The restaurant is open seven days a week, from 12 noon till 10.30pm.

Thomson is trialling the social media

THOMSON is using Google+ and Twitter to modernise the holiday experience for its customers. The holiday company will welcome holidaymakers predeparture using live Google+ hangouts and invite customers to use a dedicated Twitter hashtag in-resort to communicate with their iAdvisor. The move comes after research found that holidaymakers are using social networks ahead of their trip to meet other travellers and share information. Customers at Thomson’s exclusive Sensatori Resort Crete had the opportunity to participate in a Holiday Hangout before they depart. The live video hangouts gave customers the chance to ask their resort based iAdvisor questions about the hotel and local area and get an update on the weather. They also used #SensatoriCrete to tweet questions to their iAdvisor from their sun lounger. Ian Chapman, Director of Holiday Experiences for Thomson, said, “We’re always

Page 44

looking for innovative and unique ways to deliver the best experience for our customers. What better way to get excited about your holiday than to virtually meet with your Thomson holiday iAdvisor via a Google+ Hangout and have a friendly chat about where you’ll be staying and what you can do while you’re there? You’ll even be able to meet some of the other customers that will be on holiday at the same time as you. Using Google+ Hangouts and Twitter hashtags is the perfect way to share our team’s outstanding local knowledge and experience, but in a way that appeals to our more tech savvy customers.” All Thomson iAdvisors were equipped with a tablet to ensure they’re easy to reach wherever they are in the resort. If successful, Thomson is planning to roll out the Holiday Hangouts and hashtags across its Sensatori Resorts later this year.

Luton Airport is rated the UK’s rudest of all! LONDON Luton Airport has been branded the UK’s most unfriendly airport, according to Skyscanner. At the opposite end of the scale, Edinburgh get the thumbs up from summer travellers, coming in as the UK’s friendliest, with Newcastle a very close second. Skyscanner asked more than 500 travellers to rate UK and European airports according to the friendliness of their staff. Across all airports, check-in staff appear bottom of the list, while things start to pick up after the security gates with staff in restaurants and shops typically the chirpiest. Of the five airports serving London, four made the top five rudest list including Heathrow, despite immigration staff being asked to turn on the charm during the busy summer Olympic months as the capital was in the international spotlight. London City Airport which now carries almost three million passengers each year, bucked the trend of low scoring London airports and only just missed out on a mention in our five friendliest, coming in a close 6th place. Edinburgh Airport, which was recently praised as the UK’s number one family friendly airport, hit the top

spot once again, hailed for its customer service skills. The study also shows a clear north-south divide with Newcastle hailed for its great attitude towards travellers, named as the 2nd friendliest airport followed by Manchester (3rd), suggesting that perhaps people really are friendlier in the North. Known for its charm and witty banter, Northern Ireland’s two main gateway airports; Belfast International and Belfast City, which between them carry more than 6m passengers each year, ranked 4th and 5th respectively, both praised for their friendly welcome. Looking across the Continent, Paris Charles De Gaulle; Europe’s 2nd busiest airport carrying more than 60m passengers every year, was named as the rudest in Europe, with Copenhagen

Airport the friendliest. Complaints about members of staff range from abrupt responses following the simplest enquiry, to the endless queues and manhandling at security; resulting in the airport experience for many travellers, feeling more like cattle to market. Victoria Bailie at Skyscanner comments, “We like to have a good moan and grumble but overall, the average scores were positive for UK’s airports. Despite the summer rush, they’ve clearly been doing a good job to help kick-start our holiday on a positive note. However, customers travelling in and out of Heathrow faced quite a few problems during the Olympics with ex-employees being drafted in, many of whom had only completed basic training. Clearly there is

still room for improvement.” 5 Rudest Airports in the UK 1. Luton 5.76 2. Stansted 5.89 3. Heathrow 5.94 4. Gatwick 6.26 5. Birmingham 6.39 5 Friendliest Airports in the UK 1. Edinburgh 7.41 2.

Cut-price Tuesday is the day to fly off AIR travel in midweek, especially on a Tuesday, can save consumers a significant sum of money. A Which? report has determined that outbound flights on a Tuesday are, on average, cheapest with the three biggest airlines in the UK. For example, flights with EasyJet from London Gatwick to Alicante on a Friday averaged 35% (£28) more than a Tuesday.

Researchers found flying on a Sunday was, on average, the most expensive day to return home. For example, return flights with easyJet from London Gatwick to Alicante on Sundays were on average 45% (£56) more expensive

than Thursdays. Which? research also found that as well as cheaper days, there were cheaper times of the day to fly, though this varied across different airlines. For example, BA’s cheapest outbound flights were in the

morning (before 7.30am), yet outbound morning flights with easyJet, between 5.45am-11am, were the company’s most expensive. Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director, said: “With household budgets squeezed, holiday-makers will want to make sure they are getting a good deal on their flights. “We found that people can save a significant sum of money if they shop around and can be flexible, changing the day or time they choose to travel.”

The flexi B-Max is built to suit family motorists FORD’S new B-Max mini people-carrier addresses the concerns of a multitude of car buyers so cleverly because it is so flexible. It will enable supermini owners to upsize and hatchback owners to downsize, offering both the space and practicality they need. And it outstrips all its rivals by a country mile, so much so that it easily the class leader. That makes it an ideal car in my book. Okay, the price is extremely reasonable, starting at £12,995, but most buyers are sure to be coughing up £16,500 or so, while the range-topper comes in at a hefty £18,895. But if you really want the best of breed, you do have to pay for it! The ideal car for family motorists, who almost certainly comprise the biggest group of all - would be small on the outside, spacious on the inside, cheap to run, enjoyable to drive, well-equipped and comfortable. To include all those factors would take some doing at the best of times, but Ford may have just done it with this new B-Max. Based on the Fiesta, this little beauty is aimed at young families, and anyone who wants a practical runabout. True, such cars have been around for years, but none as innovative as the B-Max, and the innovation starts with the design. Curiously for a vehicle called the B-Max, it has no B-pillars (those parts of the car that house the hinges for the rear doors and support the roof ). Ford’s brilliant engineers have found a method of doing away with these pillars without compromising safety. Aside from the functionality of the design, the B-Max is also a good-looking car and, instead of pillars, their function has been integrated

into the ultra-high-strength steel doors. Freed from the need of pillars, Ford have given the car rear sliding-doors. With rear and front doors both open, there’s a gap of 150cm (59in) to get in and out of the car, which is double the usual amount of space. This makes access to the car superb for parents who have young children in a car seat, or anyone who is transporting older friends or relatives in the rear. It actually looks a lot like a downsized version of Ford’s S-Max MPV, which is not bad thing. And it also scores highly in the economy stakes, thanks to a range of efficient petrol and turbo-diesel engines. The pick of the petrols is a perky little 1.0-litre Ecoboost, three-cylinder, turbo engine available in 99bhp and 118bhp forms. The more powerful version is responsive and packs plenty of punch, taking the car from 0 to 60mph in 11 seconds, and on to a top speed of 117mph. Allied to this performance is average fuel consumption of 57.7mpg. There are also two turbo diesels. The smaller, 74bhp 1.5-litre achieves 68.9mpg and emits 109g/km, while the larger, 94bhp 1.6-litre manages 70.6mpg and 104g/km. The cabin is impressively spacious, light and airy and the raised seating position at the front offers good all-round visibility. There’s also enough room for two adults in the back, while the split rear seats fold flat to give 1,372 litres of room (if you opt for a spacesaver spare wheel). Up front, the passenger seat folds forward, which enables you to carry objects up to 7½ft long, and there’s some useful standard equipment, including digital DAB radio, USB and auxiliary inputs. There are plenty of optional extras as well. All in all, it’s an ideal motor for a reasonable price - and definitely an eye-opener for the family driver.

Forget the Golf and drive off with a Diesel Beetle! BUYING a new Volkswagen Beetle has never been that difficult a choice for lovers of the VW classic. Now, however, there’s a diesel version to take into account, and the 2.0 TDI Beetle, which returns an impressive 57.6mpg and also a £20,085 price tag, is cheaper than the Golf equivalent. Opting for a diesel Beetle over the 1.2-litre petrol version costs only £1,050 extra, but it offers a much more laid-back driving experience, and better economy. So if you can live with the practicality design compromises, the Beetle diesel is the best version yet. Volkswagen’s mission to broaden its appeal has

worked, with the more upright windscreen, wider track and lower roofline adding attitude and cut into headroom slightly, but it’s less compromised than the old car. The interior is brightened by body-colour inserts, just

like the up!, and there’s plenty of Golf switchgear. On the road, the diesel suits the Beetle’s laid-back character. It’s a decent drive (0-62mph in 9.4secs, with a top speed of 123mph) thanks to its Golf MkVI under-pinnings, so it always

feels stable, even at higher speeds. And its unique.17-inch alloys, additional exterior chrome and special badging, plus air-con, Bluetooth and DAB stereo, makes this Beetle worth more than a second glance!

Gaffers ruffle Peacocks' feathers THERE were some big wins in week four of the Oasis Fm Pool League, and none was bigger than Gaffers A’s victory over The Peacocks. Neil’s lads have been tipped

for glory, and they showed their credentials as they blasted past The Peacocks 10-2. They have now won with 8, 9 and 10 frames, but will probably not make that 11 as they

face top-of-the-table Tenerife Hammers A this Tuesday. The Bubble Blowers warmed up for that clash with a solid 9-3 win at Toscales A. Dreamers are going nicely. They were good value for their 8-4 win at Tenerife Hammers C. But they will be missing a couple of players when they host

Toscales next week. Palms A have been hitting the post this season, but everything clicked as they accounted for Phoenix Knights 8-4. They were always in control and raced into a 6-1 lead. Phoenix did threaten a comeback, but left themselves with too much to do. The Knights’ first defeat

Indeed, most of the 30 ladies competing at Phoenix Bar enjoyed a fine evening. But it was not so fine for the two Ourplace Playgirl teams, who went out in the preliminary round. That didn’t stop them from staying all night (with cider in hand) to cheer on the

Naughty Nautas! The semifinals were nervy affairs but, eventually, a repeat of last season’s final was set up as Bar 180 beat Amistad and a joyous Phoenix B overcame Naughty Nautas. The Division 1 event at Cafe Rood set up a mouthwatering contest for Finals

On paper, there was nothing to choose between Exiles A and Inn The Pink B. They started with identical records and finished the same way as they played out a nip and tuck draw. Tel was the star man for the Silencians. He won all three matches including the important final frame against Ronnie. The Square nearly pulled off a great comeback win over Exiles B. They were 3-1 and 5-3 down before rallying to lead 6-5. But boss man Blair won the 12th frame with Tom to give both sides a point in a fine match.

Hat-tip to Gwen, who beat Eric twice! Player of the week was Daniel, from Inn The Pink, who managed two break clearances. First he accounted for Fin, before repeating the trick against Ken. Despite this, the Pink lads couldn’t shake off Terrace Bar B, who earned their second draw of the season when Conrad beat Ricky in the deciding rubber.

Aridane double sinks Marino CD Marino 0 CD Tenerife 2

CD MARINO'S fans had waited a generation to see their side play third-tier football. Nineteen long years - and it all went wrong after 19 seconds! Aridane kicked off, knocked it to Cristo Martin, who passed it back to Medina. He squared the ball to Moyano, who moved forward down the right. He drew the defender and slipped it to Chechu, who whipped in a peach of cross. Muny and Noda were nowhere and Aridane powered a header past Alberto. One down, no touches and match over. Welcome to Segunda B, lads.

With the midday sun beating down and the mercury tickling the chin of 100f, the match quickly became a training session. Tenerife would knock the ball around as Marino sat back trying to plug the gaps. I lost count of how many times the ball went sideways and backwards. The hosts didn’t have the talent to trouble their visitors, and Tenerife didn’t seem worried about securing a second. It was hardly a bloodand-thunder derby. Marino looked short of ideas. Peraza was working hard down the wings but, with just Noah up front, he was short of options. Tenerife had all the angles covered and were as comfortable as an old pair of slippers. Their new boys all settled in well, but it was the form of two of last year’s squad that got the fans excited. Chechu

looked like the player we thought he would be. He terrorised Guayo and was a menace every time he picked up the ball. He finished last season well and, with a new two-year deal in his pocket, he should be a key player. Ditto Luismi. The former Elche play-maker lost his way after a bright start to his CDT career. But he looks reinvigorated. He was everywhere, and, with Marino suicidally giving

him space and time, he had his best match in a Tenerife shirt. Tenerife should have been out of sight by half-time. They wasted a hatful of chances and will need to sharpen up in front of goal against the big boys. Marino's heads were down as they left the pitch, and the fans must have feared the worst. The second half started as the first had finished, with Tenerife wasting more chances. Marino kept playing a high line, trying to tease the Tenerife players offside. But that tactic only lasts so long. Chechu and Martin slowly worked out the Marino system, and only the incompetence of the linesmen stopped them from having numerous one-on-ones with the home keeper.

Aridane eventually added his second midway through the second half, before spurning more chances to collect the match ball. Even Raul Llorente was getting in on the act. The left-back had a nose bleed as he tore into the box to meet another Chechu cross. He was unmarked four yards out. The ball was perfectly delivered, the keeper seemingly in Adeje, and an open goal to aim at. Yet somehow he spooned the ball over the bar. It was last seen heading towards the Green Hospital! It didn’t matter as Tenerife saw out the match with little resistance. It was the perfect way to forget last season’s play-off despair. As for Marino, well they have to smarten up, and quickly. They showed Tenerife far too

much respect and will need to find more bite if they are to have any chance of staying up. They have brought in a couple of bodies since last Sunday and they have the two CDT boys back for the match at Getafe B this weekend. After being dumped out of the Cup on Wednesday, they will desperate to avoid a third lose in a week. Canarian Weekly ratings CD Marino: Alberto 6; Aaron Darias 6, Muny 5, Noda 6, Guayo 5 (Raul 61min 5); Peraza 7 (Airam Garcia 69min 5), Rayco 7, Maikel 6, Javi Marchena 6, Baldwin 6; Noah 5 (Adam 69min 5). CD Tenerife: Aragoneses 6; Javi Moyano 6, Bruno 6, Tarantino 7 (Yeray 74min 5), Raul Llorente 7, David Medina 7 (Abel 69min 6), Inigo Ros 5; Chechu 8 (Suso 83min), Luismi 9, Christo Martin 7; Aridane 7. Tenerife have their first home match as they lock horns with Rayo Vallecano B at noon on Sunday. The visitors had a real go when they were last in Santa Cruz. This will be their first match after last weekend’s game was postponed. They might need the match and, with confidence high in the CDT camp, the hosts should get another win.

Horoscopes of the week Virgo

(August 24th - September 23rd) Money worries are getting on top of you and it’s worth your while talking to someone you know you can trust so that you don’t feel you are “in this” alone. You’ve got more support and help than you think. You’re not supposed to know everything and have to do everything on your own, so don’t manipulate yourself in this way. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) A new opportunity and a bit of good luck make this a better week than you’ve had in months. What have you done to deserve this? You’ve been honest, which is all that your loved ones want from you. Errands you have to do for family will be greatly appreciated so don’t let them down. You may need the favour returned. SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd) Courage puts a new face on everything. You’ve come a long way, and you’re about to reap some of the many benefits which come with the journey you’ve taken. You’re thinking more about the past than usual this weekend, but this is a good thing. You’re putting it behind you and moving on to greater things S AG I T TA R I U S (November 23rdDecember 21st) You may have to learn and work at some things you do not enjoy, but it’s going to pay back tenfold, so don’t back out when you have come so very far. Links with foreign names or places prove lucky for you - but may not meet with the approval of a close one. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) The Sun is bringing out your more confident side, which should allow you to deal with issues you usually shy away from. Try to put yourself in the company of those you find stimulating. You’ve done your best with those who needed you, but they didn’t give anything back and it’s time to

Page 48

make yourself a priority. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) You may have to confess to something you would rather have swept under the carpet. The only problem is that others already know more than you think, so you will only end up making yourself look the fool if you continue to lie. Family become more important, and a dramatic announcement could see you planning a life change by the end of the year. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) There is no longer any room for speculation, but it is a time for action. You’ve learned the lessons you need and now it is the time to put into practice what you know. Neptune helps you to realise a lost dream, and you’re finally back in the driving seat and no longer a passenger. The sooner you realise this, the sooner you’ll be able to touch your dreams. ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Financial affairs take a turn for the better this week. There is a new feeling of optimism in this area of your life and you’d do well to take advantage of it. Close ones find you easier to get on with as you gradually relax into your new-found security. Be careful to guard a friend’s secrets well, though. There is a lot riding on your discretion. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) Rumours you really don’t want to believe may just be true. This

information may take some getting used to, but it is sure to see you making your life a better place to be. You find out who you can trust and who has been feeding you a pack of lies. Wednesday and Thursday are perfect for signing deals, contracts or even cheques. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Sticking to promises is the key to you making sure you get back on track with a close one who has become tired of your empty promises. New friends make for a more interesting social set-up, but you may have to cross paths with someone you have never really warmed to in order to really infiltrate the good crowd. Education and legal links bring good news. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) Friends have the best invites as they know what excites you and what bores you by now. By that same token, you may have to attend a work gathering you just know you won’t enjoy - just to get back on track with someone you clashed with in your career. Is it worth it? Yes it is, as the end of this month will soon prove. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) Flirtations are not as innocent as they first seem, so make sure you find out all the details before you embark on a path which could end up being the ruin of your reputation. There are so many people to please in your career - and so little time to see them all. Be sure of your priorities before you make your promises so that you can’t be labelled a liar.
