Carry on Consulate? Huge cost-cutting exercise in the Canaries short-changes millions THE Canary Islands’ British Consulate, which acts as a trouble-shooter for thousands of residents and millions of visitors each year, is dumbing down! Already, the Consular office in Santa Cruz, once open every weekday morning, is now available on Tuesdays and Fridays only, between 8.30am-1.30pm. And now, Maria Leng, the British Consul for nearly two years, has been cast aside. “She is to leave her role as part of a continuing modernisation of the consular network in Spain, says a press release issued from the British Embassy Madrid this week.” Yet Giles Paxman, HM Ambassador to Spain at the Embassy, tells us: “The Canaries are among the most popular destinations worldwide for British nationals, with some 85,000 residents on the islands and 3.5 million visitors every year.” It seems plain, although the Embassy won’t say so, that this is a major cost-cutting exercise, to the detriment of millions, who sometimes need immediate support from the Consul - and not just on Tuesdays and Fridays! Ms Leng absolutely loves her job. Her ambition since childhood was to work for Britain’s Foreign Office in some capacity, and she took great pride in telling us back in July: “In 2011, Consular staff in the Canaries dealt with 1,345 assistance cases. “We have seen a significant rise in cases involving deaths (20%) mental health (67%), missing persons (11%) and hospitalisation (39%). “Every day, residents and tourists find themselves

in truly distressing circumstances, such as suffering a serious accident, bereaving the death of a loved one, or becoming a victim of rape or another violent crime. “Our primary role is to offer support and assistance to those British nationals in need and their families.” Not so readily now, it seems, and plans to cut our Consular services back drastically appear to have been underway even then when we were told a few months ago: “From 1st July 2012, both British Consulates in Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) and Santa Cruz will be introducing important, operational changes. “We seek to improve the way in which we serve both British residents and tourists, and we recognise the need to

adapt to meet the challenges of the current economic and social climate. “The focus of Consular work in the future will be on providing additional support to victims, and preventing the consular cases of the future. “We need to allow Consular staff to dedicate more time to victim support, emergency assistance cases, and outreach work. “To this end, we will be moving all non-emergency and non-time-sensitive work to our Consulates in Las Palmas and Santa Cruz, and delivering these services to the public on specific days only.” In other words: “Sorry mate, we’re cutting right back to save bundles of money.” Ms Leng was certainly taken in then because she added: “Together with safeguarding

Britain’s security and building prosperity, the Government has placed the protection of our citizens abroad right at the top of our foreign policy agenda. “In order to do this, we need to adapt our opening hours for non-emergency enquiries to allow our staff the time to dedicate to those most in need. “With a more efficient delivery model in place, and greater use of the media, stakeholders and partners to deliver regular and targeted preventative messaging, projects and campaigns, we hope to drive down avoidable, non-essential assistance work.” Unfortunately for her, it seems as though her role has been declared “avoidable, non-essential assistance work”. There is no suggestion that

Ms Leng will play a future role in British Embassy affairs because Mr Paxman talks of her successor carrying on Maria’s good work. But it is rumoured that her replacement will be based in Madrid or even Malaga, which is a far cry from Tenerife or any of the Islands. According to Mr Paxman: “Ms Leng is to leave her role as part of a continuing modernisation of the consular network in Spain.” Yet he praised her up to the hilt, saying: “I would like to thank Maria Leng for the huge contribution she has made as Consul in the Canaries, as well as to our wider Spanish and Southern European consular networks. “She has been one of the key drivers in improving our services, in a country that has the busiest British Consulates in the world.”

Bewilderingly, he added: “Our offices in Tenerife and Gran Canaria do an impressive job providing a wide range of assistance to British visitors and residents on the islands. “They are staffed by highlytrained and dedicated staff and are committed to working closely with the Spanish authorities and British community organisations, all of which are vital partners. This work will, of course continue under Maria’s successor.” And Maria Leng would only say: “I am very proud to have led two great teams, who provide a first-class service to British nationals in sometimes difficult and distressing circumstances. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Consul in the Canaries, and previously in Ibiza, where I was ViceConsul.” It’s all a big Embassy mystery because Mr Paxman, who obviously rates her highly, said: “Maria’s departure coincides with a wider restructuring of the British consular network in Spain, about which we are in touch with the Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores y Cooperación. “Maria’s successor will continue to develop and support the solid relationship we have with the Canarian authorities.” So why can’t this impeccable member of staff carry on performing the Consular duties she does so well? In plain-speaking English, this latest information means that Tenerife Expats, plus the millions of annual visitors, will now be supported by a local team of just three people should they get into difficulties and need consular support.

SPANISH ECONOMY

returns to growth in 2014 THE day before the national strike Mariano Rajoy began his speech at the opening ceremony of the National Conference of Leaders of the Association for the Progress of Management by insisting that “the future must be met day-by-day through hard work. There can be no easy fix, miraculous measures or useless short-cuts; what we need is to set the right course and remain steadfast at the helm to hold that course”. The President of the Government acknowledged that the current scenario is not good because the number of people out of work is approaching six million and no modern society can remain insensitive to those figures. He added that his Government encountered a very tough situation when it came to power but that its objective, then and now, remains unchanged: “to help Spain recover from the crisis”. To do so,

measures have already been taken and more will be taken in the future. “We will only recover from the crisis within a context that involves the European Union”, said the President of the Government. That means we will have “to build more Europe”. He went on to say that “specific results are already being produced in terms of banking and fiscal union, to which Spain has been actively contributing”. On the domestic front,

reforms have already been implemented to curb public spending and increase revenue to meet fiscal consolidation targets. Mariano Rajoy recognised that “many of these measures are painful”, they are “measures that nobody likes to take” and, moreover, many of them “were not included in our election manifesto”. However, they are “necessary” because “if we are unable to reduce the deficit and achieve balance

in our public accounts, everything else will crumble around us”. He insisted that “we cannot spend more than we collect”. Mariano Rajoy highlighted the cut in ministerial spending and the tremendous effort being made by the regional governments to reduce the deficit by taking “tough and painful decisions” which many people do not understand, but which are “essential”. “The results of these efforts, even though we are in recession, are starting

to be felt: the State deficit has been reduced from 4.26% in August to 3.93% in September while the regional government deficit stood at 0.9% of GDP in June”. “We are therefore witnessing an unprecedented effort, a very uncomfortable one but one that must be made”, he concluded. The President of the Government expressed the need to undertake more structural reforms and defended, as one of the most ambitious commitments, the labour reform. “Despite the fact that we are still in recession, the first results of implementing this reform are already starting to reveal themselves”. He also mentioned the training of workers, especially young people, and highlighted the approval of Dual Vocational Training and the launch of the Training and Apprenticeship Contract. Mariano Rajoy recalled that “we already knew that things weren’t going to be easy and they aren’t” but that his government accepted the challenge and warned of the problems regarding the deficit and the growing number of unemployed. It is always “better to base yourself on reality”, he added.

The President of the Government sent a message of hope because there are data that underline the increased competitiveness of the Spanish economy in terms of foreign trade and a surplus in the tourism sector. He explained that “without wishing to be over-optimistic; the situation is still very serious and the efforts yet to be made are still great, but positive data does exist to show that the traditional imbalances are being corrected”. He stressed that “the Spanish economy will return to growth in 2014 and we can take encouragement from that” but “a long path of reforms” still remains ahead of us. “If we do not allow ourselves to be beaten, we can reach our goal. We will be capable of maintaining our course” and grow and create jobs, he insisted. In order to achieve that, he said, we need to take “tough decisions” and “we need to fight on many fronts, not all of them here but in the European Union as well, and this Government will do that because it has a clear picture of its objective, its course is set and we know which instruments need to be used”.

Amarilla display that sharp edge! A PICTURE of joy: Amarilla Golf Club are proud winners of the seventh annual, threeway competition against Golf del Sur and Adeje Golf Club. They overcame a 1½-point deficit against Golf del Sur on their course, going into the final match, to emerge victors by three points. The event, played between teams of 16 between April and September, comprises a total of six matches - two home and away - with a fourball, better-ball Matchplay format. A delighted Ian Sharp, who was just about to hand over his club captaincy when the tournament began, skippered the side. “It was an excellent comeback at Golf del Sur, and we won the trophy for the third time,” he said.

Oil or nothing THAT looks to be the message coming from the Spanish Government to the Canaries. On first glance the promotional photograph looks like something out of a glossy tourist campaign: a surfer, board under his arms, coming out of the turquoise waters that lap against the fine, white sand. Nothing out of the ordinary, seeing as the shot was taken on the island of Fuerteventura, famous around Europe for its natural beauty and great surfing. But if you look closer at the image, you begin to notice that the man’s skin isn’t brown because of the sun, but rather black from oil. This is just one of the deliberately shocking images that the activists of Clean Ocean Project.org have been distributing over the last few weeks on the beaches of the Canary Islands. Last March the Spanish government of Mariano Rajoy, through the Minister for Industry José Manuel Soria López, gave free reign to Repsol, one of the world’s biggest oil companies, for a series of tests that should make way for the biggest oil field in Spain. “This is a project that puts in serious danger the ecosystem of an area famous for its natural beauty and also labelled as a Biosphere Reserve,” explains Wim Geirnaer of Clean Ocean Project. “The tests will be done with air guns through the soundwave technique which will inevitably disturb and compromise the lives of the dolphins and whales that flock to these protected areas of the sea.”

It’s not only wildlife associations (WWF and Greenpeace) lining up for battle against the Spanish government’s decision, but almost the entire population of the Canary Islands, who have taken to town squares in protests rarely ever seen in this archipelago. “We’re against this project for two principal reasons” explained the Cabildo of Fuerteventura. “The environmental risks, firstly, but then also the possibility of the reduction in tourism. These islands live exclusively on the tourism industry and a project of this nature, with the elevated risk of accidents that it brings with it, could threaten the main income to these islands.” Locals note the irony as one of the top Spanish national leaders was born in the Canaries, Industry Minister Minister for Industry José Manuel Soria López, he was infact the man who gave the green light for this project, condemning his place of birth! The energy giant counters that the local economy is bound to benefit from the drilling project. “We think that the installation could create between 3,000 and 5,000 new jobs,” affirms Kristian Rix, a Repsol spokeswoman.

But Wim Geirnaer isn’t buying it. “Everybody knows that the new jobs created require highly trained specialists who, in Fuerteventura, like in Lanzarote, just don’t exist,” he said.“This is clearly an operation in favour of a private business and against the interests of an entire community.” If, like Repsol hopes, the oil can be found, in the space of a few years the multinational will have carte blanche for drilling in an area twice the size of the islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote put together. 20 authorised oil platforms will have the capacity to extract 144,000 barrels of crude oil per day, this could be constructed quite close to the coast, for a simple reason: 60 kilometers from shore, in the middle of the Atlantic, is the border that separates Spanish waters from Moroccan.

Morocco’s government has already expressed its aversion to the project and a border violation could create problems for Repsol, as well as the Spanish government. Twenty-five kilometers from the black sandy beaches of Lanzarote, and 10 km from those in Fuerteventura. Such should be the minimum distance that the drilling which can reach a depth of 5,000 metres, the same maximum depth as the BP platform of the Deepwater Horizon, which exploded in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico. A petition has already gathered 30,000 signatures and the Canarian government has appealed to the United Nations as well as the European Union to stop the project. Still, the government in Madrid has announced that Repsol can begin drilling in the space of a few weeks. While the battle heats up, the Spanish government has cut incentives for the desalinisation of water (the only source of potable water for the islanders) and blocked the project for a windmill park on Gran Canaria. The islanders consider the moves from Madrid as a clear warning: oil or nothing. If you want to sign the petition go to www.cleanoceanproject. org

Ten-Diez – the gallery AFTER the recent success of their first event in September 2012 and the positive response from the public as well as the collaborators and speakers at the lectures and miniworkshops, Ten – Diez have decided to take their next steps.

Friday 16th November sees the inaugranation of the gallery, at 5pm continuing until midnight, there will be a short talk about Ten Diez and a DJ to celebrate the opening. On a day to day basis the Ten – Diez gallery will be open Monday –Friday 9-5pm and it’s free admission.

Shooting stars

MOST of mainland Spain was immobilised on Wednesday as workers stayed away from their jobs, industries ground to a halt and public transport slowed the country down during the second general strike within a year called by the nation’s main labour unions in protest at conservative Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s austerity policies. Spain’s rate rose

unemployment to above 25

percent for the first time on record in the third quarter of this year, and the country is now in its second recession in three years. But supporters and protesters failed to bring the Canaries to a halt, which had been their intention; it was very much busy as usual with the shops, businesses and airports open, just minimal disruption to schools and road transport. Some 110 people were arrested across Spain. At least 40 others were reported injured, including 18 law enforcement officers. In the capital, a police charge against protestors in Cibeles square left 15 people injured while in Valencia 10 pickets were arrested and six more protestors were injured later in scuffles with

Spanish jobless toll is still racing ahead SPAIN’S unemployment figures continued their ever-increasing rise in October, with the number of registered jobless in public employment offices climbing for the third month in a row to almost five million. The number fell in only two of Spain’s 17 regions: here in the Canary Islands and Valencia. According to figures just released by the Labour Ministry, jobless claims last month climbed by 128,242 (2.73%) to a daunting 4.833

million. But the ministry pointed out that the increase was lower than in October 2011, when jobless claims rose by 134,182. The National Statistics Institute’s Active Population Survey, published last month, showed that the jobless rate climbed above 25% in the third quarter for the first time on record. According to the survey, which is considered a more accurate reflection of the state of the labour market, 5.778 million people are out of work.

police outside the city’s bull ring. In Tarragona, two workers were injured after being hit by trucks at picket lines. One of the drivers was arrested. Also in Tarragona, a minor was injured and three more arrested when police attempted to break up a picket outside the El Corte Inglés department store. In Madrid, a man and a woman detained by security forces were found to be carrying explosive equipment, including gasoline, nails and a large firework. In Asturias, a rocket fired at a Guardia Civil van caused its inhabitants to evacuate suffering from smoke inhalation. It’s difficult to put a figure on the number of workers that indeed participated, but unions said the strike was a 100-percent success at all ports, which were shut down shortly after midnight on Tuesday. The metals, automotive and construction industries also reported high absenteeism, the unions said. “The stoppage in industry is practically complete although there have been minor exceptions at the Renault and Citroën factories,” said UGT communications secretary José Javier Cubillo. However, electricity consumption indicated that the participation rate in the stoppage was lower than in previous national strikes in March of this year and in September of 2010. According to the national grid operator REE, demand

for electricity attributable to productive activity in constant terms indicated that only 60 percent of workers had adhered to the call to lay down tools, compared with 91.8 percent in March. There are currently 14.23 million salaried workers in Spain. The protests however appear to have fallen on deaf ears as Rajoy has said that he will not back away from his austerity measures. Economy Minister Luis de Guindos said a general strike “is not the right way to reduce uncertainty.” “We are aware of the problems facing people but the government’s road map is the only possible alternative,” he added. Some flights to and from major airports, including Madrid’s Barajas International Airport, suffered delays or cancellations. In all, it was expected that 700 scheduled flights would be cancelled during the day, with 1,344 of the 2,322 flights on airport authority AENA’s log protected under the minimum service agreement. Tenerife Airport appeared to have little disruption. Some holidaymakers unfortunately were affected. EasyJet cancelled 26 flights, services from Gatwick to Barcelona and Madrid, and rescheduled 10 others including flights from Gatwick and Manchester to Athens, and from Gatwick to Thessalonika. Iberia Group cancelled more than 350 flights.

NO, not the old BBC Two comedy programme, the real ones that will fill the skies this weekend. Leonids will fill the Tenerife skies from now for a week (hopefully). The Leonids is a prolific meteor shower which is associated with the comet Tempel-Tuttle. The name comes from their location in the constellation of Leo. The meteors appear to radiate from that point in the sky. The Leonids peak during mid November. We see it as the Earth moves through the meteoroid stream of particles left from the passages of a comet. The stream comprises solid particles, known as meteoroids, ejected by the comet as its frozen gases evaporate under the heat of the Sun when it is close enough – typically closer than Jupiter’s orbit. The Leonids are a fast moving stream which come close to or cross the path of the Earth and impact the Earth at 72 km/s. At times they’ll produce bright meteors or fireballs which may be 9 mm across and have 85 g of mass and punch into the atmosphere with the kinetic energy of a car hitting at 60 mph. Each year the Leonid shower will deposit 12 or 13 tons of particles

across the entire planet. The meteoroids left by the comet are organised in trails in orbits. These trails of meteoroids cause meteor showers when Earth encounters them. In the case of the Leonids, they tend to peak around November 18, but some are spread through several days on either side and the specific peak changes every year. Conversely, young trails are spatially very dense and the cause of meteor outbursts when the Earth enters one. Meteor storms (large outbursts) exceed 1000 meteors per hour, to be compared to the annual background (1 to 2 meteors per hour) and the shower background (a few per hour). The best time to see them will be early morning, just before dawn, on a moonless, cloudless night. And finally, just so you know, on a trip to Santa Cruz this week I walked past what was the Marks and Spencer’s small food outlet, ‘Simply Food’ only to find it shut down. On closer inspection it states that it has now moved to be an integral part of the original Marks and Spencer clothes and homeware store at the end of Calle Pilar. So, if you’re going to pick up some Christmas goodies you’ve been warned. Until next week…

Drug-growing network is taken apart by police POLICE have arrested 25 people and dismantled a Gran Canaria illegal marijuana production network. It was said to be used to provide funding for a mobster-style organisation in Serbia. Agents seized about 700 plants on three floors of a house in Las Palmas and two other locations on the island.

They also searched safedeposit boxes in two banks, which contained 840,000 euros in cash, luxury watches, cocaine and “relevant documents”. The investigation began following the February arrest of fugitive Vladimir Milisavljevic, who was convicted in the 2003 assassination of Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Djindjic. Eight of the arrests took place on the mainland and 17 on the island.

Complete silence as crowds gather to commemorate Remembrance Sunday

Flu jabs are readily available again after contamination scare THE flu vaccine is now available in Tenerife health centres, with priority given to people at risk of complications from the bug, the chronically ill of any age, and people over 65. The first vaccines supplied by other regions, following last month’s suspension of the Canaries’ campaign, are now in place and are being distributed. The original

supply was found to be contaminated. In the coming weeks, as the rest of vaccines arrive, the Health Service will vaccinate other people included in the recommended groups, such as pregnant women, people with morbid obesity (BMI over 40), carers of patients with chronic illnesses and those over 65. Workers in essential community professions like the police, fire-fighters and especially health service personnel will also be given preferential treatment.

Support fades for rival Government parties THE two main Spanish Government parties are sinking in the esteem of citizens. Although the ruling Popular Party (PP) and the Socialist Party (PSOE) continue to control the vast majority of state, regional and local agencies, they have jointly lost more than 19% of support since the general election a year ago. These were the findings of a Metroscopia opinion poll. Equally significant is that both party leaders have lost the confidence of the voters: 84% said they trust Prime

Minister Mariano Rajoy very little or not at all. And for Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba, the Socialist leader and former government official in the Zapatero administration, distrust is up to 91%. And the worst part is that this figure features 80% of his own Socialist voters. Until now, Spain’s major parties knew that when one of them lost the elections to the other, it was only a matter of time until the tables were turned. Now, though, it appears that Spaniards are turning their backs on this automatic two-party system, even if electoral legislation continues to favour it.

MORE than 1,500 people turned out to honour the fallen at various venues and churches on Remembrance Sunday ceremonies in South Tenerife. The biggest congregation was, as always, at Westhaven Bay, Costa del Silencio, where people from many nationalities, including some American visitors, attended the Royal British Legion’s annual service. Among the guests was Tenerife Cabildo President Ricardo Melchior who, along with everyone present, observed the traditional TwoMinute Silence.

British Legion Poppy Appeal organiser Kelly said: “During the silence, it was noticed by many people that there were no planes going overhead, no cars driving past, nobody moving chairs and no children playing. “The Silence was just that! People just seemed to be remembering those from the past, and those who had passed away this year. “They were remembering soldiers, old and young, who had fought so that we might have the freedom to live our lives as we would like.” Last year’s Poppy Appeal in Tenerife raised 11,694.97 euros and, when this year’s collection has been gathered in and counted, the overall figure will be made

known by the British Legion. Kelly added: “We

thank everyone for their continuing support of the association.”

4.500 Iberia workers dumped THE holding company for the merger of British Airways and Iberia, IAG, is layingoff 4,500 workers to reduce the Spanish carrier’s record losses and return it to profitability. The company says it is shedding 22% of Iberia’s workforce to safeguard some 15,500 jobs across the airline.

It is one of the largest so-called labour-force “adjustment plans” (ERE) ever carried out in Spain. The plan also calls for capacity cuts and improved productivity as part of a permanent structural change throughout Iberia. Labour unions feared an ERE was in the pipeline and expected between 4,0006,000 redundancies. Three Spanish unions have threatened strike action, but Iberia has set a 31st January

to reach an agreement with labour representatives. It threatens “more radical” restructuring if the plans are not accepted by then. Iberia’s scaling-down operations includes a cut in its network capacity of 15% next year to focus on profitable routes. The company’s fleet will be reduced by 25 aircraft five long-haul and 20 shorthaul planes. It is hoped that the plan will stem Iberia’s cash losses by the middle of

next year. Willie Walsh, IAG’s chief executive, said: “This turnaround plan is critical for Iberia, and for the future of Spain. “A strong and profitable Iberia can create jobs and boost tourism, which is a key driver in Spain’s economic recovery.” Justo Peral, of the Spanish pilots’ union SEPLA, said: “This plan completely depletes Iberia. If this is a consolidated group, why are all the sacrifices being made

in Spain?” But Walsh sent a strong signal that union threats and strikes would not deter him from restructuring Iberia, which, he said, “is in a fight for survival and cannot continue in its current form”. He added: “We have options available where we can take actions without agreement. Our preference is to restructure the business with agreement but, whatever happens, Iberia will be restructured. And at

the end of the restructuring, it will be a more efficient, competitive company.” Walsh, who also presided over unpopular BA restructuring, warned unions and politicians in Spain that they could not prevent him from making the cuts - if they wanted Iberia to continue flying. “Who’s going to stop me doing it?” challenged Walsh. “These cuts are down to determination of management.”

Tenerife is still a hit with Brits TENERIFE wound up its World Travel Market adventure with confirmation that UK tourists remain faithful to the Island.

After four intense days in London, Tourist Minister Carlos Alonso is “very positive”. He said that among the achievements were confirmed sales increases of 1% on the winter season which has just started, and 3% for next summer. If the forecasts are confirmed, Tenerife will close the year with figures to match those for 2011 and 2013 should exceed this year’s 1.6 million UK tourists. The increases will be largely down to increased

Page 10

air capacity to Tenerife, consolidating it as a preferred Brit site for holidays. In addition, the Minister announced that from 1st April 2013, there will be a scheduled flight on British Airways between London Gatwick and Tenerife, offering business and firstclass travel. This, Alonso hopes, will increase the number of British travellers with high purchasing power. Jorge Marichal, President of the tourism association Ashotel, hailed this new flight as “very positive”. Marichal stressed that not only will there be extra flights, but there will be first-class seats - something for which four and five star hotels have been pressing for years. The British are the most

loyal Tenerife visitors. Some 76% of those who have spent holidays on the Island in the January-September period have been here before, and 57% have been here at least five times. Their average, annual, household income stands at 56.000 euros, and the average age is 49. Passengers travelling from UK in 56% of cases are with family and stay mainly in the South, while 88% use the Internet to organise their trip. The main reason given by Brits to visit Tenerife is the climate, followed by prices, accessibility, proximity to the UK and accommodation characteristics. And, happily for the tourist industry, fully 95% say they will recommend Tenerife to friends and family.

Ministers speeding up the new mortgage laws Women’s suicide underlines despair of non-payers’ home evictions THE Spanish Government is to hasten mortgage legislation reforms following the tragic suicide of a woman facing eviction. She jumped to her death from a sixth-story window of her home in the Basque Country - the second eviction-related suicide in recent weeks. The Council of Ministers yesterday (Thursday) approved an executive measure to introduce urgent steps to prevent evictions in cases of extreme hardship. The ministers are said to have agreed to suspend evictions when the annual family income is less than 19,000 euros. The Government wants this measure to be applied immediately to the most vulnerable sectors of society, including the elderly, the disabled and families with young children, and is eager to push the new legislation

through.. Inma Évora, representing the Tenerife Platform for people affected by mortgage problems, said 24 daily evictions were taking place in the Canary Islands. “The situation will be worse in a few years because right now they are enforcing the eviction orders from 2008 to 2010,” said Évora. “Since that year, after the onset of the crisis, 8,400 families have lost their homes on the Islands, squeezed by an economic situation in which the choice is to eat or

16 November - 23 November 2012

pay the mortgage.” Tenerife Platform has frozen 30 foreclosures on the Island this year, but there is much more work to be done, to provide support for people facing imminent eviction. But at least the Government recognises their dilemma as is prepared to take action. “The problem is that even in these times, people are ashamed to go public with their economic difficulties,” added Évora. Thankfully, there have been no suicides in Tenerife, but such is the despair felt by

many that Santa Cruz resident Omaña Carmen, after losing her house, camped outside the office of Bankia and began a hunger strike. Santa Cruz Mayor José Manuel Bermúdez intervened and forced an agreement between the parties to end the strike. But not all situations can be resolved so easily. While the Popular Party government and the opposition are hammering out new rules, the Socialists will also ask the banks to freeze all foreclosures currently underway. A few days ago it was assumed that any emerging legislation would not be retroactive, but a Socialist spokesman said: “We need to force the possibilities a little so that the new law is applied in all cases. We need to try to stop this.” There have been over 350,000 evictions in the last four years in a country

with extremely high homeownership levels. Meanwhile, the rate of job destruction will leave over six million Spaniards out of work by 2013, according to Brussels, which means that growing numbers will be unable to meet their mortgage payments. While judges complain that their hands are tied and all they can do is apply the law, society is coming up with innovative ways to fight the foreclosures. Santa Cruz Council has “persuaded” Bankia to halt all local evictions temporarily by withdrawing 1.5 million euros from the lender, which was nationalised earlier this year to avoid bankruptcy. This was the action which ended the five-day hunger strike and has been hailed across the country as a positive move. In recent days, a growing chorus of voices, most notably

judges, has been demanding Government measures to stop this dramatic situation. The Government’s decision to speed up reforms comes just after a European Union justice official found that Spanish mortgage laws violate community legislation. That’s because they do not guarantee consumer protection from potentially-abusive contract clauses. Juliane Kokott, Advocate General for the EU’s Court of Justice, issued a report saying Spanish judges should be able to suspend evictions until the abusive nature of one or more mortgage contract clauses can be confirmed. Currently, Spanish law does not allow for this possibility, but instead establishes that the issue of contractual abuse must be determined in a separate court case, once the foreclosure has taken place.

North East is the hardest hit by debt WHICH? is urging the Government to safeguard funding for national debt organisations as research reveals households in the North East owe almost 34p for every pound in income.

Rest in peace, Paul A memorial service is being held for Paul James who passed away last Sunday morning. The service will take place at the Christian Fellowship, Apolo Centre, Los Cristianos tomorrow (Saturday) at 1pm for those who would like to pay their respects.

Of the nine English regions, people in the North East have the most debt, owing 34p for every pound in gross income in contrast to 12p in the South West. The findings, published as part of National Consumer Week, highlight the skyhigh levels of debt and stark regional divisions across England. Overall, British households are in debt by a staggering total of £1.4 trillion – 31% more than the UK’s national debt – while on average each household owes about £6,000 in unsecured debt. The latest Which? Quarterly Consumer Report, which tracks how people are coping in the current economic climate, has shown people

are struggling to cope. It shows 2.4 million households borrowed money from family and friends, while 11.3 million households took out additional finance. Which? wants the Government to protect funding for debt helplines, like National Debtline, which are a crucial source of information for people who are struggling to manage their finances. Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said: “The level of debt owed by people in some regions is shocking so the Government must not cut funding for national debt organisations which provide a vital lifeline for those

struggling with debt. “If people are worried about their finances, our advice is not to ignore the problem and seek help from one of the many debt charities who offer free and independent advice.” The household debt-ratios of the individual English regions are: · North East 34p per pound of gross income · West Midlands 33p · London 24p · North West 23p · East Midlands 19p · East of England17p · South East 17p · YorkshireandHumber13p · South West 12p

Corrie legend dies in Tenerife and friends. His body is being flown back to the UK. Dave said, “We ended up as very good friends, he was a real nice down to earth genuine guy” “He was in here (Old Lodge) on Wednesday. Bill didn’t go out much anyway when he came here he just wanted to relax, purely relax, he enjoyed reading, he stayed in that’s what he wanted to do. He was quite content. He just wanted to wind down.”

EARLY on Friday 9th November, Bill Tarmey, 71, who played Corrie’s favourite, Jack Duckworth for 31 years in the long running ITV soap Coronation Street died at his family apartment here in Tenerife. Bill had been here on a fortnight’s holiday in his Torviscas apartment with his wife Alma, son Carl and his wife and ironically was due to fly home on the day of his death. Between 10am and 10.30am on Friday morning Carl’s wife ran out of the ground floor apartment shouting at complex maintenance man Alfredo to ring an ambulance. They arrived quickly, but were unable to assist, as the much loved actor had died in his sleep, it transpires from natural causes. Canarian Weekly spoke to Bill’s good friend here on the island, Dave Taylor, from the Old Lodge Puerto Colon, Adeje.

Dave told us, “I’ve been in Tenerife for 18 years and had the pub for 17 years, originally near Bill’s apartment, that’s how we became friends.” The pub moved to Puerto Colon 12 years ago, so Bill moved as well. Dave continued, “Alma telephoned my wife to say that Bill had died, my wife

16 November - 23 November 2012

rang me, I was setting up the bar I went straight up to Almas.” Even though Bill was not in the best of health having a heart bi-pass, about 3 other heart operations, a pacemaker, and in the last few years had trouble with his breathing his death was sudden, and a shock to family

The Perfect Christmas DLT arrested THE news broke yesterday afternoon that the former Top of the Pops presenter and Radio 1 DJ was being questioned by police at Aylesbury police station on suspicion of sexual offences. He is thought to be the fourth person to be arrested in connection with the Savile sex abuse inquiry. He was arrested, in the early hours of the morning by detectives from the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Yewtree at his home in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire at 7.45am. It is understood that the allegations do not directly involve Savile and are classed under the strand of the investigation termed “others”. The Metropolitan Police force is leading a national investigation into abuse

allegations made against disgraced Jim’ll Fix It presenter Savile. So far, around 450 potential victims have come forward and 200 allegations of sexual assault have been made. Officers are looking at three strands within their inquiry - claims against Savile, those against Savile and others, and those against others. Most of the “others” allegations have been made against people associated with the entertainment industry. Former glam rock star Gary Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr and a 73-year-old man have already been arrested and bailed in connection with the investigation. Last month Travis vigorously denied allegations that he groped two women while in BBC studios.

Guard jailed after death of student at rail station A RAILWAY guard convicted of the manslaughter of a drunken college student has been jailed for five years. Christopher McGee signalled for a train to move off as Georgia Varley was leaning against a carriage. The 45-year-old was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence by a unanimous jury at Liverpool Crown Court following a twoweek trial. Georgia, just 16, had been on a night out in Liverpool with friends when she fell between the train and the platform at James Street Station in October last year. The court heard that she was three times the legal drink-driving limit and had 0.083mg of the drug mephedrone, or Mcat, in her system at the time of her death. The prosecution said McGee, of Wallasey, Wirral, was negligent because he gave the signal to the driver to start the train when Georgia was in contact with the train and was in an “intoxicated state”.

Page 14

McGee, who denied manslaughter, told the jury he thought Georgia was moving away from the train when he gave the signal to depart. He also said he did not know how drunk she was. Mr Justice Holroyde told him: “In my judgment, the CCTV footage is unequivocal. Georgia Varley was not moving away, and she was not showing any sign of moving away. “She only moved when the movement of the train deprived her of support and caused her to lose balance and fall to her death.” The jury were shown CCTV footage of the teenager’s death, and she could be seen getting off the train, mistakenly, just before 11.30pm. She then turned around and leaned against the side as she realised her friends were still on board. The Birkenhead College sixth-form student was then seen to stagger and fall down the gap as the train moved off, before stopping after travelling around 10 yards.

B&Q has collected over 300,000 Christmas trees from the Green Team Plantation in Aberdeenshire and delivered them across the UK to 362 of its stores this week.

Joclyn Silezin, buyer for horticulture at B&Q, said: “More customers are saying they will be spending Christmas at home this year with family and having a real Christmas tree is part of that tradition.” Earlier this year B&Q announced it would be investing in a new woodland scheme which will “demonstrate how neglected woodlands can be revived to support stronger levels of biodiversity, reconnect with local communities and encourage jobs and skills” in a sector with an ability to provide sustainable products and low-carbon fuels. The project will work with community groups, councils, charities and landowners to map and assess 10,000 hectares of woods and, in the process, train and educate 1,400 people about the importance of good woodland management. The company was the first large multiple retailer to sell real Christmas trees 30 years ago and continues to lead the offering of real trees in the UK. Customers can choose from six varieties of real Christmas trees including the blue spruce, the Serbian spruce and the dwarf Alberta spruce. The trees are just one aspect of the ‘perfect Christmas’ that B&Q are helping consumers to create.

Their latest TV ad being aired this week shows a family decorating their home for Christmas and getting everything “perfect”, including the young daughter who has made her own decoration which the parents have to find a place for. The TV ad was created by McCann Erickson and will be supported with press, digital, social and PR activity. B&Q’s head of advertising Ruth Harrison-Wood says:

“We want our customers to know we are here to help with getting the home ready for Christmas this year. Christmas is often a stressful time and with too much going on, people can often forget what it’s really about. This advert is all about the feel good factor, that family scene that we are all familiar with and the satisfaction we all get from making improvements to our homes and the lives of our families.

And, of course that extra little titivation to get your home perfect, this year” The ad features a mum and dad carefully putting the finishing touches to their home to create the perfect Christmas, while their young daughter has other plans and different aesthetic standards. The soundtrack is a version of the Crosby, Stills & Nash song Our House that B&Q has used in its ad campaigns all year.

‘Flawless’ diamond sold for a world-record £13m A FAMOUS diamond, admired the world over, has been sold at a Geneva auction for more than £13 million. The 76-carat Archduke Joseph diamond, described as “internally flawless”, comes from India’s famous Golconda mines. It was sold to an anonymous bidder by the Christie’s auction house, and the price was way above the £9m pre-

sale estimate. And it more than tripled the £4m it fetched when it was last sold in 1993. Francois Curiel, director of the international jewellery department at Christie’s, said: “It is a world record for a Golconda diamond and a world record price per carat for a colourless diamond.” “The market is not on the best form at the moment and so this sale was almost flabbergasting.” The diamond’s seller,

American jeweller Black, Starr & Frost, is under the impression that it will be going to a museum. Christie’s specialist Jean Marc Lunel said the Archduke Joseph was prized because it boasted the highest quality of shape, colour and clarity that can be found in a diamond. And it has an illustrious history. The diamond came from the ancient Golconda mines, where the famous Koh-i-Noor and blue Hope Diamond originated.

It was named after Austria’s Archduke Joseph August, a prince of the Hungarian line of the Habsburgs, who reportedly deposited it in a bank vault in 1933. “Three years later, it was sold to a European banker, and kept in France, locked away in a safe deposit box, where, fortunately, it remained undiscovered during World War II,” said the auction houseDecades later, it surfaced at auction in 1961 - and again at Christie’s in November 1993.

TV is in the dock over child-sex accusations I N V E S T I G AT I O N S are taking place into ITV’s This Morning and BBC’s Newsnight over their handling of child sex-abuse allegations.

Ofcam, the media watchdog, is examining the BBC programme which led to Tory peer Lord McAlpine being incorrectly implicated in a paedophile ring. It is also looking at This Morning after presenter Phillip Schofield confronted David Cameron head-on with a list of alleged paedophiles while live on air. Ofcom is concerned with whether the broadcasters complied with “generally accepted standards” and applied them to “prevent unfair treatment to an individual, and unwarranted infringements of privacy”. The announcement followed ITV’s statement that it had taken disciplinary

action over the moment Schofield ambushed the Prime Minister last week. The broadcaster refused to comment further, but reports suggested the host himself and three producers had been reprimanded. The BBC’s Newsnight show

16 November - 23 November 2012

on 2nd November sparked a furore. It also followed Lord McAlpine’s first interview about the affair, in which he said he felt “angry to his soul” over his treatment by the BBC. The programme, broadcast on 2nd November, plunged the corporation further into

crisis, just as it was already reeling after the Jimmy Savile scandal. The show reported allegations from a child-abuse victim that he was abused by a senior Conservative figure from the Thatcher era. Although Lord McAlpine

was not named, it sparked fevered speculation, which led to the peer being identified online. Days later, during an interview with Mr Cameron, Schofield produced a string of alleged paedophiles he had found on the internet. The presenter said he had found them within a few minutes of trawling the web, and he suggested to the Prime Minister that he should speak to those being widely named. Mr Cameron refused to even look at the list, which the presenter showed inadvertently on camera as he passed it over. The PM, visibly angry, expressed concern about exactly that sort of speculation, and he warned against a “witch hunt”. Downing Street later condemned the confrontation as a “silly stunt” and it sparked some 100 complaints to Ofcom. Lord McAlpine protested

his innocence in a lengthy statement the following day and later, his alleged victim confirmed he had got the wrong man. ITV said it had investigated the circumstances surrounding the “mistake”, for which Schofield and This Morning have apologised. A statement from the TV channel read: “The investigation has now concluded and the appropriate disciplinary action has been taken. “We sincerely apologise because the way in which the issue was raised was clearly wrong, and should have been handled differently. “We have taken steps the make sure our editorial processes are always properly followed, which was not the case in this instance, and to ensure such an error will not be made again.” Meanwhile, Lord McAlpine has threatened to sue the relevant stations to clear his name.

Get ready for the scatty new diary from Bridget Jones BRIDGET JONES is returning next year - in book form, at least, with a possible third film to follow. Author Helen Fielding has revealed plans for her third novel about the scatty singleton, who was played by Renée Zellweger in the first two films. The character, who started life as a weekly column in The Independent in 1995, filled the pages of her diary with her failed efforts to find love. Bridget measured her life in the number of cigarettes she smoked, units of alcohol she drank and number of calories she lost - or gained. The 54-year-old Ms Fielding said: “The new novel is set in present-day London, with an entirely new scenario for Bridget. “If people laugh as much reading it as I am while writing it, then we’ll all be very happy.” This new tome will almost certainly be a best-seller following the success of the first two, which sold more

than 15 million copies and inspired the films. But Ms Fielding is keeping quiet about the plot of Bridget’s third outing, and Dan Franklin, from publisher Jonathan Cape, said: “Great comic writers are as rare as hens’ teeth. “Helen is one of a select band who have created a character, Bridget, of whom the very thought makes you smile. Like millions of others, I can’t wait to see what has happened to her.” Yet Ms Fielding said on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour that she had been surprised by the books’ success. “When I first wrote it, I didn’t think anyone would read it. It was just a column in The Independent, so it was very easy to write and be very honest. “And then I got all selfconscious because I knew so many people would read it.” But she will not discuss the new plot because she has “new stuff” to say. However, she hinted that Bridget’s new obsessions could include the number of followers she had on Twitter.

Mice are not to be sniffed at when it comes to security! THERE’S no way police would send them out in search of explosives and drugs, Not yet, at least! But sniffer mice could one day be involved in airport security operations! Teams of highly-trained rodents could be employed, if Israeli firm Tamar Group can persuade officials they will be more beneficial than dogs. The company uses mice equipped with biological sensors, which detect changes in their heart-rate, breathing and other factors. The animals are trained to react when they smell explosives or drugs, and their

Page 16

reactions are recorded by a computer. If the mice detect something, inspectors or security officers are then alerted. Tamar Group chief Boaz Hayun told The Times Of Israel: “Animals’ senses are far more developed than those of humans, and they are more developed, even, than the most advanced security sensors created by man.” But Hayun seems to have ignored the fact that security sniffer dogs have worked wonders at airports, and in dangerous situations, over the years. The mice system is now on show at a security conference in Tel Aviv.

Kiev has taken top Euro spot

TripAdvisor®, has just announced the winners of its 2012 Travellers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise awards. The awards honour the destinations worldwide that have seen the greatest increase in positive feedback and interest from travellers year-onyear. While Kiev takes the top spot overall in Europe, it’s encouraging news for UK tourism, with four cities featuring in the European top 10 destinations on the rise list. Glasgow, Manchester and Belfast take sixth, seventh and eighth place respectively with Liverpool coming in tenth. With the UK now thirsty for sporting events following this summer’s Olympic Games, Glasgow

may well be enjoying additional interest as the city readies itself to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Whatever the reason, Glasgow’s position as the UK’s number one destination on the rise is sure to be good news for the Scottish city. Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: “These awards are based on the reviews and opinions and interest from millions of travellers across the world so to be recognised as the number one destination on the rise in the UK and one of the top 10 in Europe demonstrates a real vote of confidence in Glasgow.” Eastern Europe has a significant presence in the ranking with three cities represented in the European top 10 destinations on the rise list. Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, takes the top spot and also places third in the global top 10 – perhaps

partially owing to the city playing host to the Euro 2012 Football Championship this summer. Moscow, which has experienced significant tourism developments recently with a number of major airlines announcing new routes to the city, takes second place in the European list and also ranks ninth in the global list. Turin, Italy’s fourth largest city, has been named third in the European list, and an impressive 10th in the global ranking. “All winners should be incredibly proud of their award – not only has traveller interest in their destination increased, but each city has also seen an increase in positive feedback on their hotels, restaurants and things to do,“ commented TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma Shaw. Of the 2012 Travellers’ Choice Destinations on the Rise global list, South America features heavily with Mar Del Plata in Argentina

coming in at number one, Brazil’s Sao Paulo second, and Montevideo in Uruguay placing fourth. First place Mar Del Plata is just south of the Argentinian Capital, Buenos Aires, and speculation that the city may play host to a Formula 1 World Championship race in 2013 may have played a part in piquing traveller interest. Australia features with two destinations; Western Australia’s Perth is fifth and Hobart – the capital of Tasmania - is seventh. “These awards are decided by those judges that really matter - travellers themselves. For those unsure about where to travel next year, this list may offer welcome inspiration,” continued TripAdvisor spokesperson, Emma Shaw. “With the hangover of the Jubilympics set to hit in 2013, it’s great to see four UK destinations recognised in what may mean a great boost to the UK’s tourism industry.” More information www. tripadvisor.co.uk

UK jobless tally at its lowest for over a year BRITAIN’S unemployment figures have dropped to their lowest total in more than a year. Yet there has been an increase in the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, according to the official tally The jobless total fell by 49,000 to 2.51 million in the quarter to September, which is the lowest figure since the summer of 2011. But the so-called claimant count jumped by 10,100 last month to 1.58 million - the highest since July, and the biggest monthly rise since last September. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the number of people in work increased by 100,000 in the latest quarter to just under 30 million, which is a rise of more than 500,000 in the past year. Other figures from the ONS showed that those out of work for over a year increased by 12,000 to 894,000 in the quarter to September, while 443,000 people, up by 21,000,

have been jobless for over two years. A drop in London jobs was seen as a natural result of the Olympic Games and Paralympics finishing. Part-time employment increased by 49,000 to 8.1 million, close to a record high, while there were 51,000 more people in full-time jobs, at 21.4 million. Employment minister Mark Hoban told Sky News that he believed a section of the higher number seeking Jobseeker’s Allowance were those no longer claiming disability allowance.

16 November - 23 November 2012

“These figures suggest that our welfare reforms are working, with fewer people on long-term sickness benefits and more people either in or looking for work,” he added. “It’s good news to see yet another increase in the number of people in work, and to see unemployment fall again. “The fall in youth unemployment is particularly welcome, although we’re not complacent about the scale of the challenge still facing us.” Female unemployment fell

by 10,000 to 1.09 million, and by 39,000 among men to 1.43 million. Meanwhile, unemployment in the 16-24 age group fell by 49,000, which accounts for the total fall in today’s jobless figures. More young people are classed as economically inactive, most of whom are in full-time education. Neil Carberry, the CBI’s director for employment and skills, said: “It’s encouraging that people are continuing to find jobs, and that the unemployment rate is falling. “New incapacity benefit rules means more people are on Jobseeker’s Allowance. “But progress on getting people into work is much slower than we saw earlier in the year, and last month there was a troubling rise in the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance.” Meanwhile, average earnings have failed to match inflation. They increased by 1.8% in the year to August, up by 0.1% on the previous month, giving average weekly pay of £471, including bonuses.

Tower chiefs are adamant the priceless Crown Jewels were not at risk, but they did admit a breach of security procedures, saying:“These were not carried out to the expected standard.” Police are now investigating, and a spokeswoman for Historic Royal Palaces said:“We can confirm an incident took place in the early hours of 6th November, and that it is now a police matter, so we are unable to discuss details. “But we can confirm that keys for a restaurant and conference rooms were taken, together with a key to an internal lock to

the Tower drawbridges.” She added: “It would not have been possible to gain access to the Tower with any of the keys. We have carried out an internal investigation and have concluded that our wellestablished security systems and procedures are robust.. “On this occasion however, these procedures were not carried out to the expected standard. A staff disciplinary procedure is underway to address this issue.” The Tower of London is, famously, guarded by the Yeoman Warders, nicknamed Beefeaters, along with a private security firm. The Yeomen’s origins date back to the reign of Edward IV, in 1461. Serving Beefeaters must have completed at least 22 honourable years of military service, and are synonymous with the Tower - as are the six resident ravens. The Crown Jewels have been a major allure for countless visitors over the years, and the British monarchy still uses the symbolic gems in coronation ceremonies.

It’s action galore as busy refuge is overwhelmed by 33 stray dogs Accion del Sol News

A NORMAL week at Accion del Sol sees around 1520 dogs being brought into the refuge by Protection Civil from the streets of Arona, Granadilla or Guia de Isora. But last week, a huge total of 33 dogs arrived, and one of them this beautiful Cocker Spaniel, who was collected from Chas aqua in Granadilla. The poor dog’s fur was riddled with ticks and fleas, and his ears were matted beyond belief. He was immediately treated by the vet, then showered, using special shampoo to start relieving him of the infestation. He was kept in quarantine to ensure nothing was passed on to the other dogs. After settling in for a few days he was taken to the dog-grooming parlour for a serious hair cut. As you can see, he’s a completely different dog now, and he’ll soon be looking for a loving home.

He’s not the only one because there are many gorgeous dogs in search of a new home, so please do pop in to the refuge if you want to adopt one. Every dog at the refuge is micro-chipped, inoculated, de flead, wormed, treated for heartworm and, most importantly, sterilised or castrated to prevent unwanted puppies. There are dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages so there’s bound to be a dog to suit your requirements and lifestyle. Please remember to mark 9th December in your diary, because that’s when Accion del Sol’s fund-raising Christmas event is being held at the refuge. Father Christmas has promised to drop in with presents for the children, and there is also an action-packed afternoon of fun. It’s definitely not a day to be missed for all you animal-lovers. If you would like to visit or assist Accion del Sol in any way, please call 922 778 630 for more information, or do call in from Monday-Friday (3-6pm). The refuge is situated at the Granadilla Industrial Estate, Exit 51 on the TF1, right next to the ITER ecological park by the windmills.

Fun Golfers pay their respects THE Fun Golfers, all wearing their poppies, stopped play on Remembrance Sunday at 11am to observe the traditional two minutes’ silence. There was another poignant two-minute silence at the Los Palos course in Guaza. after the game in honour of Keith

Ashton, a dear friend and player for many years, who passed away recently. The tournament was again its usual success, and the sun certainly shone on two players. Firstly, Ron Dixie scored a hole in one on the second, and then Keith ‘Lofty’ Simpson, playing in a three-

ball, took second and third places, and also secured the Nearest the Pin prize on the 9th. Well done to Ron and Lofty! WINNERS Main Event: 1st - John Bentley & Brian Anderson; 2nd - Keith Simpson & Peter Rawson; 3rd Simpson & Ian Street.

Nearest the Pin: Men Simpson; Ladies – hard luck girls, no winner! Better luck next month. Booby: Ron ‘Bandit’ Barnes & Maureen Flowers. Anyone wishing to play in the final competition of the year next month (9th Dec) should contact Clive on 922 797 640.

Aaron gains a grand sum for the Bomberos CRACKED IT! Proud Aaron poses with his sister Kitty and Bomberos chief Carlos after presenting the head of Adeje’s fire-fighting force with 1,000 euros. This magnificent sum, to be put towards new equipment for Tenerife’s voluntary firefighters, was collected as a result of Aaron’s gallant fundraising walk last Saturday, from La Caña bar in Los Abrigos to Amarilla Golf’s Terrace Bar. The never-say-no youngster was determined to complete

the walk, despite suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which affects around one in 3,600 boys and results in muscle degeneration. Together with the support of

some appreciative Bomberos, plus friends and family - Kitty and Gwen and Carl, their Mum and Dad, - Aaron walked the walk in style, to cheers and applause all round when he

finally reached the Terrace Bar. Aaron dreamed up the fund-raiser after learning of the brave Bomberos’ exploits during the nightmare summer of fires in Tenerife. “These brave people helped me on one of my own events, when they sent a fire engine along, and I wanted to return the favour for them keeping our Island safe,” he said. So it’s hats off to the youngster, who has more than repaid the Bomberos with his own magnificent achievement.

Lions offering double screening, which may save your life in time An extra-special auction by Lions A SPECIAL auction of Antiquities, Memorabilia and Collectables will be held by San Miguel Lions Club next Friday (23rd Nov) at Flicks Bar, Amarilla Bay. This is an annual event, featuring items not placed in the Lions’ usual monthly auctions at Amadors Kiosco, Silencio, because of their nature. Viewing is at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.

Page 18

The regular sales are held on the first Friday of the month (except in January, when they are staged on the second Friday). “There are some excellent pieces on show at Flicks Bar, so if you are interested in auctions, or you collect valuable items, please come along,” says Lions Club President Ralph Solomon.

TENERIFE Sur Lions Club are offering an opportunity for men to be screened for prostate cancer and diabetes at the same time. If you are over 50, or having trouble with your waterworks - frequent nightly visits, difficulty in passing water, etc - you need to be checked for prostate problems, or for your own peace of mind. And if you are constantly thirsty or tired all the time, you need to be examined for diabetes. These are simple tests which could save your life or, at least, increase the quality of your life. This opportunity offers

many beneficial factors, because if these diseases are found early, they can be treated successfully. We have enlisted the co-operation of Excellent Medical, whose clinic is on the main road behind the clubhouse on Golf del Sur. Medical staff there are giving their time and expertise for free, but the blood analysis must be paid for. As in previous years, you can phone to make an appointment in advance, or turn up on the day between 9-10.30am on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and at 8-9.30am on Thursday

and Friday. Please remember that you must have no food after midnight, and only a drink of water. The scheme starts on Monday (19th Nov) and finishes on Friday 14th December. The specially-reduced cost, arranged by the Lions as part of their ongoing community awareness campaigns, is only 40 euros total for both screenings, and included is a small donation to Lion’s charities. Please make your payment at reception before your screening. Because of the data protection laws, you will need to produce your NIE number

or passport before you are given the results, normally within a week. Should the result be abnormal, you can discuss it with the onsite doctor, and any further treatment would need to be paid for on a private basis. Please say that you are attending as part of the Lions Screening to enable you to obtain this extremely reduced price. To arrange an appointment, call Excellent Medical on 922 738 247. All the reception staff speak English, and there is a car park on the site. Remember, they are waiting to help you!

Hoping to catch the eye of the ladies tonight are training fanatic Matt from Leicester, builder Pete from Chichester, BMX champion Sam from Colchester, and student Luke from Surrey. And there is a chance to find out if romance blossomed between last week's couples on the Isle of Fernando's.

Made in Chelsea Channel 4, 09:30 Cheska is determined to take Binky's mind off her heartbreak, so arranges a glitzy girls' night out to cheer her up. Despite Andy promising a date with Sophia, he still can't quite cut ties with Louise. After arranging to meet up in a book shop to exchange uni notes, Francis spots them together. Elsewhere, the boys have their own night out. The mood is ruined when Andy pushes Spencer too far, resulting in another showdown and Spencer going AWOL. Millie, Rosie and Andy feed this back to Louise, who ends up in floods of tears expecting Spencer to appear as she waits for her train back to Edinburgh. After a flirty date, Andy and Sophia decide to remain friends. Meanwhile, two hot new Chelsea girls, Lucy and Carly, manage to catch the group's eye. Stevie tries to steal their attention, but it's Jamie who triumphs and secures a 'date' for the next morning with Lucy. Lucy, however, calls it a business meeting and immediately takes Jamie to task on his commitment issues.

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

Not to be mist GORDON SLAYNEY started entertaining at a young age, bashing grit out of a snare drum in the school music room. This, naturally, led to creating a Glenn Miller tribute band which, sadly, disappeared in thick fog over the English Channel; Gordon was the sole survivor (I made that last bit up). He then joined five-piece band Backtrack, playing drums and singing third harmony. Following a stint as a bluecoat at Pontins,

he began compèring and decided to try Tenerife, arriving in September 2010 with enough money to keep going for a few months. Slowly but surely, Gordon has progressed to working six nights a week. His nights are: Monday: 9.30pm - Exiles Bar, Silencio. Tuesday: 9pm - The Square, Pueblo Canario Wednesday: 9.30pm Highland Paddy 3, Los Gigantes Thursday: 9.30pm - Exiles Bar, Silencio

Gary Lineker presents the best of the action from the Premier League, with analysis from Alan Hansen and Harry Redknapp. The day's early kick-off was a north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham. This fixture has provided much drama over the years,and last season's clash was no different as Arsenal battled back from 2-0 down to thrash their bitter rivals 5-2. Manchester United faced a difficult trip to play Norwich. Although the Canaries endured a tough start to the season, they enjoyed a superb win over Arsenal and showed that winning at Carrow Road will not be easy for any side. Last season it took a 90th minute goal from Ryan Giggs on his 900th appearance for Manchester United to see off Norwich 2-1. Elsewhere, champions Manchester City hosted Aston Villa, who beat them at the Etihad Stadium recently in the League Cup, Chelsea visited West Brom, Liverpool hosted Wigan, Newcastle took on Swansea, QPR welcomed Southampton and Reading played Everton at the Madejski Stadium.

This stage of Simon Reeve's journey around the spectacular Indian Ocean takes him from Sri Lanka to Bangladesh. On the island of Sri Lanka, the Chinese are building a huge new port in the south, and their money has helped the Sri Lankan government bring a 30-year war to an end. Simon also visits the north of the island - the scene of vicious battles between fighters from the Tamil minority and the Sri Lankan army. Heading north, Simon investigates one of the Indian Ocean's fastest growing industries - providing prawns for the West. In Bangladesh, huge prawn farms flood the fertile land with salt water, which also causes concern for the environment. This leg of the journey ends with one of the most amazing sights of the whole Indian Ocean: the shipbreaking beaches of Chittagong, where dozens of huge tankers and container ships are beached before being broken up for scrap by vast armies of low-paid Bangladeshi workers living in terrible conditions.

The Fire Fighters Society. Presenter Matt Allwright makes an appeal on behalf of the Fire Fighters Charity, a charity who provide vital support for the fire and rescue community and their families. The film features fire fighter Debbie Young, who suffered a careerthreatening injury whilst responding to a fire at a cafe. After months of treatment, Debbie was still no nearer to returning to full operational duties; she feared she would have to give up the job she loved. Fortunately Debbie was able to attend one of the charity's rehabilitation centres, where she received specialist treatment for her injury, and last year she returned to work fully recovered.

Watchmen Channel 4, 22:00 A dystopian fantasy adventure based on an unusually faithful adaptation of the highly regarded graphic novel written by Alan Moore, directed by Zach Snyder. It's 1985 and Richard Nixon continues his tenure in the White House, massively popular with the electorate following his crushing defeat of the Viet Cong. However, it seems that the American public have fallen out of love with their superheroes, one of whom, Dr Manhattan, was largely responsible for the winning the Vietnam War. Now, he and his fellow crime-fighters are regarded as reprehensible vigilantes and have been banned by law. But, when one of their number - the vile, ironically named Comedian - is murdered, the former heroes begin to re-emerge from the shadows to investigate. They discover that a terrifying plan is afoot.

W C C H O IC E The Dark Charisma of Adolf Hitler BBC2, 21:00

Adolf Hitler seemed an unlikely leader - fuelled by anger, incapable of forming normal human relationships and unwilling to debate political issues. Such was the depth of his hatred that he would become a war criminal arguably without precedent in history. Yet this strange character was once loved by millions. How was this possible, and what role did Hitler's alleged 'charisma' play in his success? The second episode in this three part series reveals how Hitler managed to lead the German people to war in 1939 and orchestrate the dramatic German victory over the French in 1940. Incorporating testimony from those who lived through these times, film archive - including colour home movies - and specially shot documentary footage.

Stephen Fry: Gadget Man Channel 4, 20:30 Stephen Fry, Britain's favourite clever clogs, doesn't live life like the rest of us. He doesn't get caught in traffic jams, doesn't have to push his own shopping trolley or even hold his own toothbrush - instead he relies on his collection of trusty gadgets to make his life run smoothly. In this new series, Stephen shares his passion as he welcomes viewers into his wonderful world of tech, from the everyday.

Cheryl: Access all Areas ITV, 21.00

This exclusive documentary for ITV2 follows pop sensation Cheryl Cole as she prepares for her first ever solo tour. Taking in some of Britain’s biggest venues in ten cities and 11 days, the film joins Cheryl just 20 days before she takes to the stage for the first time. Cheryl is seen as she rehearses in LA with her dancers and as they arrive back in London to see the stage set up for the first time. As the first night of the tour gets closer, the nerves start to show and Cheryl confesses her anxieties about performing. As she lets the cameras in to share intimate moments during the preparation and behind-the-scenes of the tour, Cheryl tells the programme: “I have toured before, many times, with Girls Aloud. I’ve played the same arenas that I’ll be playing solo, but I’ve never done this alone, so it’s quite a strange feeling. All I want is to have the best show I can have. So it’s going to be big, very big.” As Cheryl plans the tour with her choreographer, creative director and dancers, she explains that she is prepared to invest everything in it as a thank you to her fans for supporting her.

W C C H O IC E MasterChef: The Professionals BBC2, 20:00

The competition to crown Britain's next culinary superstar continues. The four remaining chefs from the last heat return to face a skills test. Monica asks them to make three sauces - a hollandaise, a maltaise and a mousseline - and serve them with asparagus. With a time limit of just 15 minutes, it is a tough challenge, especially for those chefs unfamiliar with all the classic sauces. At the end, one chef is sent home, while the three still standing get their chance to cook for Michel Roux Jr. Michel cooks a Beaujolais berry jelly with a classic creme anglaise and French arlette biscuits. The chefs must recreate the dish for Michel, attempting to impress with their pastry skills and elegant presentation. They are then asked to prepare their own classic dish for Michel and Gregg in just one hour.

Fresh Meat Channel 4, 22:00 At an open mic gig Kingsley performs a song written by Blur's Graham Coxon. When Vod is not invited to attend a poetry seminar by the renowned poet John Frobisher, she gate-crashes the event and befriends the great man himself - with dramatic and unexpected consequences. And Josie is still disappearing every morning to her 'seminars', but can she prevent the housemates from learning the truth?

Cheryl is seen as she bonds with her team over their differing accents and as she out-runs the paparazzi at the airport. When she lands back in London, she goes to see the stage for the first time and tells the cameras: “I’ve imaged it for a long time, but when you actually see it, it’s kind of breath-taking. It’s exciting.” Rehearsing on the set, Cheryl is seen practising a swan-dive off a six foot platform into the arms of her dancers. There are tense scenes as she contemplates whether or not she can make the leap. With just days to go before the first night of the tour, everyone in the team is exhausted and the cameras are there as dancer Tre attempts a backflip and injures his knee. With his appearance in the tour in jeopardy, Cheryl tells the cameras about the last few days before a tour starts. She says: “It is insane, not fun, and the twelfth hour? Disastrous. There are moments where you want to sit in a corner and cry.” The cameras follow Cheryl to Ireland for the first night of her tour. As she gets her opening outfit on and prepares to take to the stage, she explains the feelings that are running through her mind. She says: “I am in a zone on my way to the stage. I can hear the audience screaming. Mel is shouting, ‘Are you ready?’ to which I say, ‘I don’t know.’ “I don’t know. I all of a sudden have forgotten every lyric, every dance move, if I even know the show at all at that stage. I’m that nervous. And even if my legs are going to hold up to stand up, I’ve gone to jelly. And then I’m there, and I’m in it and it feels so good. And normal, and I’m not scared.” The programme shows the highlights from Cheryl’s first concert and her elation as it all goes well. After Ireland is complete, the team and Cheryl are back on the tour bus and head to the O2 in London. Cheryl explains how excited but nervous she is to be performing at such a big venue in front of her friends and family. The cameras follow the star back stage and to her after-show party – where the paps are out in force. The programme sees Cheryl at the launch of her autobiography and at a TV appearance to promote her tour. Plus, on stage in Manchester she presents Tre with a birthday cake and sings to him with the crowd. And, Cheryl: Access All Areas, is with the singer at her very emotional home-coming performance in Newcastle.

Supersized Earth traces the spectacular story of how humans have transformed our world in just a single generation. In this awe-inspiring three-part series for BBC One, Dallas Campbell travels the globe, visiting the world’s largest and most ambitious engineering projects, exploring the power of human ingenuity and the making of the modern world. In 1980, the tallest building on the planet was the Sears Towers in Chicago, and Dubai was a dusty strip of desert with a single highway. Fast forward 30 years and the world’s tallest building stands at more than 800 metres, cities like Las Vegas have sprawled across the desert and are home to millions, and China is the manufacturing capital of the world, with many of the fastest-growing cities on Earth. In just a single lifetime, humans have changed the face of the Earth on a scale unimaginable to our predecessors. In this first episode, Dallas accesses some of the most amazing constructions on the planet, travelling from the glittering heights of the world’s tallest building in Dubai to the bustling favelas of Rio and to the planet’s biggest city of all – Tokyo. On his journey, he undertakes some extraordinary feats, from dangling on a rope hundreds of metres above the ground to clean the windows of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, to scubadiving through Mexico City’s toxic sewage, in order to unblock the turbines keeping its failing system from total collapse.

Kirsty Young, Matthew Amroliwala and Martin Bayfield are joined by detectives from across the UK, appealing for help in solving some of the UK's biggest cases. Royal Military Police appeal for information on the disappearance of two-yearold Katrice Lee, who went missing from a British army base in Germany in 1981. They are hoping new computer-generated imagery of the crime scene and ageprogressed photographs of how Katrice might look today will spark fresh leads. Plus, the inside story of how detectives proved the parents of 17-year-old Shafilea Ahmed were guilty of her brutal murder, in a shocking case of so-called 'honour killing'. Police went to great lengths in a nine-year investigation, even planting a listening device in the family home.

The Culture Show BBC2, 22:00 The show comes from the Tate Modern on London's Bankside, home to A Bigger Splash, a new exhibition taking a new look at the relationship between performance and painting. Alastair Sooke meets Elena Palumbo, muse and model for Yves Klein, to find out what it was really like to be a 'living paintbrush' for one of the most influential avant-garde artists of the post-war period. Tom Dyckhoff takes a look at how the architecture of the City of London has helped transform the capital into a global financial powerhouse. And Mark Kermode interviews Danish film director Thomas Vinterberg about his new film The Hunt.

The Magaluf Weekender coming soon to ITV2 A unique new ITV2 documentary series following goings-on at the infamous holiday resort of Magaluf has been commissioned for transmission in the New Year. In each of the 6x60-minute self-contained episodes The Magaluf Weekender follows a different group of 18-24 year-olds as they head out to the resort to party away a long weekend of their lives. For some, it is their first holiday without their parents and captures the reality of their newfound independence and all the layers of bravado, insecurity and raging hormones that go with it. In addition to the holidaymakers, we follow four characterful resort reps throughout the series as their lives intertwine. The Magaluf Weekender incorporates a fresh approach to the structured reality format, combining fixed rig filming with casting its contributors, but will not be scripted. Production have decked out the resort hotel with fixed rig cameras from reception to the bar, pool and bedrooms of holiday-makers so that everything that happens on the trip can be recorded. The footage will let viewers discover what makes these young adults tick as the absence of a crew results in cameras capturing unguarded moments ranging from funny to touching and everything in between. The Magaluf Weekender is produced by Twofour. Series Director is Alex Kohler, Series Producer is Kate Bates and Executive Producer is Carolyn Payne. Carolyn Payne, Executive Producer says: “The way we shot the show so unobtrusively with the fixed rig means that we got incredibly unguarded and honest material. Viewers can expect to see courtships and relationships between young adults like never before.” Katy Thorogood, Factual and Daytime Commissioning Editor says: “Everyone remembers that first holiday away with your mates. You’re on the cusp of adulthood but still a kid inside and trying to hide it. This series will capture all those excruciating, funny and tender moments.”

Great Continental Railway Journeys BBC2, 21:00 Michael Portillo retraces the journeys featured in George Bradshaw's Continental Railway Guide. Michael begins this journey in Berlin, the capital of Germany, which at the beginning of the 20th century was a powerhouse of science and technology. Led by his 1913 railway guide, he then heads west via the picturesque Harz Mountains to the industrial Ruhr Valley to learn how imperial Germany was war ready. He then travels south along the tourist trail of the castle studded Rhein river and ends his journey in the Rheingau to taste the wines of its age old vineyards.

Kirstie's Vintage Home Channel 4, 20:00 Kirstie Allsopp is looking to the past for inspiration in transforming unloved and cluttered houses into beautiful homely homes that are a joy to be in. This week Kirstie is charged with helping Ellie and Nick Harrington. They've done what most people dream of and left the rat race of London for a quieter lifestyle in Royal Tunbridge Wells. But with toddler Monty starting to investigate every room, they're desperate to revamp their bruised and broken kitchen and dining room. The trouble is that this couple have no practical DIY skills. With Kirstie, they'll make bespoke pottery for the kitchen and willow placemats for the dining room. They'll also head out on a salvage yard search for antique pieces that will cement the vintage style they want and give them the confidence they need to buy second hand in the future.

Service with a smile!

IT’S the latest trend, originated by Jeremy Brown, a South African abstract artist; Brown’s paintings are created while making love. WE have met several people this week who have just bought property here in Tenerife – presumably taking advantage of the fact that prices have reduced considerably. In both cases, we had about an hour with the client, and then a quick visit to the property concerned. One of the clients was Swedish, so I suppose it was inevitable that he would want to visit the Swedish chain store in the North. But he came back to me and said that he would get us to do the furniture after all. I think the logistics of choosing and ordering, getting things delivered, built and installed was just too much for him! If you live around the corner from your new purchase, then there is no problem in going to lots of different

Page 38

shops, (presuming you speak Spanish), and co-ordinating deliveries and installation yourself. If, however, like both clients already mentioned, you are going back to your home country, things can be a little more complicated. Our service (with a smile, naturally), includes kitchen pack, (toaster, kettle, crockery, cutlery, utensils etc), and linen pack (towels, sheets, pillows, blankets). So, basically, the service we offer means that people can place their orders for everything with us, leave the Island, and return to a fullyfurnished property, equipped ready to live in, right down to the last teaspoon and pillow case. The second clients are English, and were on a flying visit here, just to sign for the apartment. I don’t think they had given much thought to the furniture, but they came to see us through a recommendation from their solicitor. We produced an estimate for them, which again

included everything they needed to walk into the apartment and stay in it. They were delighted with this, and the lady in particular had a big smile on her face, because it means that when they come over just after Christmas, they can actually have a holiday at their property instead of working on kitting-out the apartment. Obviously, this is only part of our service, and we are also busy with re-upholstering sofas and new curtains – maybe there is a bit of a rush on for people to get their homes ready for Christmas! We are still able to order sofas and sofa beds for delivery before Christmas. And don’t forget that our sofa beds are so comfortable that it isn’t obvious they can be transformed into beds. So if you don’t want someone to stay, you can still get away with saying you haven’t got room! All items mentioned are available from Deco Nuevo, at Parque Margarita, Los Cristianos.

Taking his inspiration from the 1960’s French artist Yves Klein and various performance art pieces by Andy Warhol a close friend once complimented him on a painting that was hung inside his house. After discovering how the painting was made, she asked him to provide her with everything she needed to make a

painting with her husband on their anniversary. Jeremy put together a small package with all of the materials needed and wrote a little directional note for them to follow. They absolutely loved it, and the idea was born. Jeremy then spent 6 months researching and developing materials to ensure a safe project, including a treated nonallergenic cotton canvas, as well as, a specially-fomulated non-toxic, washable paint. He packaged the kit under the name Love Is Art. According to Brown, “Art takes patience, dedication, practice, creativity, open

mind, and an open heart...so does love. Love is art.” LOVE IS ART is a kit that comes with everything a couple needs to safely make a tangible piece of abstract expressionistic art while being intimate with each other. What is left is a one-of-a-kind abstract painting that represents that special moment, that can then be stretched, framed and hung on the wall -- a reminder of the love that was shared. The kit also provides a unique bonding experience for the couples involved, as they work together as a team to craft their own unique masterpeice. www.loveisartkit.com

M&S - greatest hits this Christmas MARKS & Spencer (M&S) has unveiled its much anticipated Christmas TV ad – putting the spotlight on the seasonal products M&S is known and loved for. Featuring the strapline – The Greatest Hits this Christmas – the campaign takes inspiration from the popular Christmas compilation album format, using a selection of floor filling tracks to showcase M&S’ most loved ranges – from its cosy knitwear to stylish party outfits. The soundtrack is always a hotly anticipated feature of the M&S campaign and this

year customers will be treated to not one, but five fantastic tunes, including a never been released Rod Stewart cover of the Christmas classic, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. The upbeat ad retains the choreographed style of M&S’ Autumn/Winter campaign and has the feel of a music video as it moves through five product scenes, each accompanied by its own signature track. The products are showcased using a representative range of models of different shapes, sizes and ages; helping inspire customers as to how they can

wear the Christmas season’s latest looks. Steve Sharp, Executive Director of Marketing at M&S, said: “Customers have been the driving force behind this campaign and we’ve been in constant dialogue to give them more of what they want to see from M&S: more products, more diversity and an injection of style and fun. Music is a really emotive part of Christmas and our compilation track format means there’s something for everyone – from song choices to wearable styles.” Opening with a traditional winter scene, a group of women are seen wrapped up in colourful, chunky knitwear playing in the snow to Rod Stewart’s track. It swiftly moves into highly stylised office scene, as a range of models strut their stuff in pencil skirts and high heels, to the sound of Jean Knight’s Mr Big Stuff. The party gets going, with the introduction of INXS cult classic I Need You Tonight – as the girls take to the dance floor in their glamorous evening attire, with chic shift dresses and floral print suits making a statement. After a night on the tiles, it’s off to bed, with a sleepwear scene set to the unmistakable sounds of Lady Marmalade.

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

Something for Archers fans at The Edible Garden Show! LOVEABLE get-richquick schemer ‘Eddie Grundy’ and sensible former school teacher ‘Kathy Perks’ are ditching Ambridge to sample a slice of the ‘Good Life’ at UK’s award-winning growyour-own event The Edible Garden Show 2013.

Played by Trevor Harrison and Hedli Niklaus, the two actors from BBC Radio 4’s long- running soap series The Archers, based in the fictional village of Ambridge, join the celebrity line-up at the show in Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on Friday March 15. Fans of the popular radio programme can get a slice of Ambridge life by making a beeline to the Archers Addicts

stand where they can meet Trevor and Hedli, pick up a few Archers goodies and get them signed! Actor Trevor Harrison has played 61-year-old farmer Eddie Grundy since 1979. Eddie is a jack-of-all-trades character with fingers in many pies. A livestock handler at Borchester cattle market, he will no doubt be checking out the Livestock Marquee – that’s if we can keep him away from the cider shed! Trevor is also partial to a pint…. Hedli, who plays Kathy, first came to The Archers as Libby Jones, a milk recorder. She later returned as the feisty and flighty Eva Lenz, the German au pair courted by local yokels. Hedli took on her current role as teacher Kathy in 1983. Kathy married one of the soap’s favourite characters, Sid Perks, who died in 2010. Hedli also runs Archers Addicts, the official fan club

for The Archers, said: “We love coming to shows like this because it puts us in touch with real life Ambridge, and it’s a great opportunity to meet our listeners and hear their stories – every bit as interesting as ours.” The Edible Garden Show harvests a huge crop of top exhibitors and brings inspirational celebrity chefs and gardeners together under one roof. Renowned chef Rachel Green will get taste buds tingling, while popular Gardeners’ Question Time panellist Bob Flowerdew, BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Alys Fowler, TV botanist James Wong and resident growyour-own guru Paul Peacock will share their passions for growing and eating homegrown crops. Scheduled for the beginning of the growing season, The Edible Garden Show is a buzz with new ideas,

advice and features. It’s a onestop-shop for anyone wishing a slice of the ‘Good Life’ and has something for all the family from bees, chickens, goats and pigs to seeds, sheds, wellies and wormeries. Following on from his success at the show in 2011 and 2012, BBC TV’s award-winning presenter and botanist James Wong will once again enthral audiences in the Experts Theatre with his passionate call to gardeners to become more adventurous and start growing a range of exotic fruit and vegetables that can germinate and flourish in the UK climate. Show-goers will get a buzz with demonstrations from expert beekeepers on collecting and processing honey and top tips on how to keep the hive healthy, flourishing and free from disease.

For the children, the BPA’s Junior Pig Club last year staged their ‘Pig Olympics’ and it is hoped the fun spectacle will return. Poultry vet Victoria Roberts will be on hand to share her

hen-rearing tips. Victoria, whose passion and talent for rearing poultry began when she was only four, will bring along some of her pure breeds to demonstrate how to handle the birds and check for weightloss and disease. The three-day show has grown from strength to strength with over 13,000 visitors attending the 2012 event from around the UK.

Buzzing aroma There’s nothing better than walking onto a terrace or patio and getting a wonderful aroma from the plants. I’ve put together just three plants that give off a wonderful ‘whiff’ as well as being very pleasing to the eye. Abelia Loves the sunshine and prefers well drained soil, it’s fast growing too which is ideal. A long-flowering, semievergreen shrub for a mixed border. This abelia has attractive, glossy, deep green leaves which it hangs on to for most of the year. From June, it produces masses of small, fragrant, pink-flushed, trumpet-like flowers on arching branches that go on all summer. As it’s slightly tender, it’s best grown in the shelter of a wall, towards the back of a border. Ideal for a cottage-style garden. But will grow in a large pot on your terrace.Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn after flowering, lightly trim back the flowered shoots to retain a neat and tidy shape. Remove any dead or damaged wood in April. Buddleja ‘Buzz Lavender’ A well known favourite, that grows so quick, large clusters of lilac flowers form at the ends of the arching stems from midsummer, creating a wonderful display over several months. These flowers are lightly scented and are particularly attractive to butterflies and bees. A recently introduced variety, it is much more compact

that many other forms so is perfectly suited to pots and containers.So make sure you get the ‘pot’ variety. Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year’s growth to three or four buds. Camellia sasanqua ‘Rainbow’ Enjoys moist but welldrained, humus-rich, acid soil plus a little shade. Not a quick grower its flowers open from fat pink buds throughout the autumn and into the early part of winter, offering much-needed colour to the planting scheme. Mainly white, but with a deep pink flush around the outer edges, the petals radiate from a prominent boss of golden yellow stamens, creating very simple, yet very beautiful flowers. Even when not in bloom, the lustrous foliage of this evergreen shrub will provide year-long structure and provide a backdrop to more colourful, seasonal treats. Garden care: To prevent damage to the emerging buds and flowers, protect from cold, dry winds and early morning sun. Water established plants in dry weather to prevent bud drop. Apply a balanced liquid fertiliser in mid-spring and again in June. Top-dress annually with shredded bark or well-rotted leaf mould. After flowering lightly trim or prune any branches that spoil the appearance of the plant. Grows quite tall so better planted in the ground.

CARL PATTISON

from Robot, Los Cristianos answers your hair questions

Three steps to Heaven! A squirt up the nose could signal end to these diabetes jabs HERE’S your threestep guide to perfect hair condition - and you can’t get more basic than this! If it’s healthy hair you want, then read on. I have always sold an array of hair-care products and, sometimes, over 50 various items have been featured on my salon shelves. Now there are just five. Yes, five! I sell one shampoo, one conditioner and one treatment, comprising one masque, a blow-dry cream and a protective oil - and that’s it! It is a three-step system that guarantees to give you better-conditioned hair. And I don’t even have to push them because they sell themselves. The first is the shampoo, to cleanse and moisturise your hair. This cleans without stripping your hair, leaving it ready for phase two, which is the conditioning. This should be applied and left on for a few minutes. Then

Page 40

towel-dry your hair and apply the treatment oil - and that’s it. If this system doesn’t work, then find me one that does! I have no fears about selling this to anyone because it works on all hair types and literally turns your hair around. It’s like hair botox because it rejuvenates from the inside out. I have seen this system turn dry, brittle hair into a smooth and glossy texture in only a few days. It works by rebuilding your hair and strengthening it and, thus, literally putting a stop to any further damage. A good shampoo and conditioner should feel creamy and not run through your hands as you pour it out. The masque should be heavier and not run off your head when applied. If you are not using a good three-step system, then I’m sure your hair doesn’t feel smooth to the touch because. these type of products are genuinely “feeding” your hair nourishment. They don’t claim to make your hair “appear” better -

they actually do! I get tired of hearing people say that they just use the nearest shampoo to wash their hair. Do you still use basic soap to wash your face? I think not. If you’re not replacing the natural oils and vitamins which your hair loses daily, then, day-by-day, it will lose its brilliance and shine. It’s like, “You are what you eat. Put junk food in, get fat”, and the same goes for your hair. So if it is lacking its normal bounce, or doesn’t feel as though it’s your hair any more, then maybe you should invest in something a little more professional the next time you wash it. It may be a small investment, but it will pay off.. Please don’t tell your stylists that you are using a cheap supermarket brand - you don’t want them giving you their evil eye, do you? As with many things, you get back what you put in. As one of my friends once said: “Buy cheap, buy twice.” Sooooo right!

A SIMPLE nasal spray could put an end to daily injections for sufferers of Type 1 diabetes. The spray, tested on rats successfully, delivers insulin to the bloodstream via the nose. And tests showed that one squirt reduced bloodsugar levels in the rodents for around 24 hours. When insulin was injected into the animals the traditional way, it took just nine hours for their bloodsugar levels to return to their original values. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition which affects around 300,000 people in the UK, and it destroys insulin-making cells in the pancreas. Without the hormone, levels of glucose in the blood can rise dangerously high. Sufferers of the disease usually have to inject themselves with insulin several times a day to keep their blood sugar under control.The new nasal spray, developed by a Britishled international team of

scientists, turns into a sticky gel once it heats up to body temperature in the nose. This helps it remain there long enough to be effective. Under normal circumstances, dust and other foreign material is cleared from the nasal cavity by the hairs there, called cilia. A chemical component of the spray also makes it easier for insulin to penetrate the mucous membranes lining the nasal cavity.

The research is published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Biomaterials Science. Study leader Dr Hamde Nazar, from the University of Sunderland, said: “Our data highlights the potential of a once-a-day dosage form for the delivery of insulin through the nasal route. “However, its relative merit for the treatment of the human diabetes condition can be assessed only in the clinic.”

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

Deadly danger of pregnancy MORE than onethird of UK women who become depressed during their pregnancy have suicidal thoughts. That was the shocking result of a snapshot poll conducted by the Royal College of Midwives and Netmums. The survey, comprising 260 mothers with ante-natal depression, found they were at greater risk of worsening mental health problems than women with post-natal depression. And only 22%

of them sought help from their doctor. Cathy Warwick, Chief Executive of the Royal College of Midwives, said the survey showed an urgent need to identify and help women with ante-natal and post-natal depression. “If we can identify women as early as possible, then we could prevent them declining into much more serious mental health problems,” she added. Experts also insist that these women need more support, and the Department of Health is actually making £25m available to improve

maternity facilities for mothers and babies. In addition, an NHS information service for parents will include videos on how to spot signs of postnatal depression. Ante-natal depression, which occurs during pregnancy, is less known and talked about than post-natal depression, which happens after the birth of a baby. This small survey suggests that those who suffer from depression during pregnancy are at greater risk of worsening mental health problems than those who

have post-natal depression alone. According to the survey, 80% of women with depression in pregnancy also went on to have post-natal depression. About 56% of those surveyed had problems during their first pregnancy, but 65% said they had problems during their second. Just over half of the women said the illness had affected their relationship with the baby, while 38% said they had problems bonding with their baby.

Patch heads the way to cut down epileptic fits, and cheers up patients AN epilepsy “patch”, worn on the forehead while you sleep, is now available in the UK on prescription. The device - rather like an anti-smoking patch contains electrodes sending tiny pulses to the brain, cuts the number of seizures and heightens a patient’s mood, say US doctors. The patch, or external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) system, is attached to a small stimulator, worn around the waist. Its tiny pulses target the major branches of the trigeminal nerve, which lies close to the skin on the forehead, and which is thought to connect to parts of the brain involved in epileptic seizures. The nerve is also believed to help regulate a person’s mood. Neurosigma, US maker of eTNS, has been granted a CE quality mark approving the patch’s use in the UK and Europe for epilepsy and serious depression. In the most recent study, carried out in 2010 and involving 50 adults whose epilepsy was not controlled by drugs, more than 40% saw a reduction in symptoms, compared with fewer than 16% who received a placebo treatment. “We also noted that eTNS caused a significant

improvement in mood,” says Christopher DeGiorgio, professor of neurology at the University of California, who has led the eTNS research. In some studies on patients with depression and posttraumatic stress disorder, the patch resulted in a 70% reduction in symptoms. Dr DeGiorgio, who scanned patients undergoing tests to assess their brain activity, adds: “Electrical pulses from the patch trigger sensory nerve impulses that travel along the trigeminal nerve and send the signal to a number of specific brain regions. “Some regions of the brain show an increase in activity, which we believe is central to the mechanism for improving mood, while other regions show a decrease in activity, which may be key to preventing seizures.” Around half-a-million people in the UK suffer from epilepsy, which is the result

16 November - 23 November 2012

of nerve cells “misfiring” in the brain. The causes include abnormal brain development and an imbalance of the brain’s neuro-transmitters. While the eTNS has not been tested on UK patients, Californian Jennifer Rees says the patch has changed her life. The 50-year-old has suffered from epilepsy since she was 14. Her condition did not respond to medication and, before starting to use eTNS six years ago, she was having up to eight seizures a month. “Within a year of using eTNS, my seizures had gone down to one a year,” says Mrs Rees. “And now, I haven’t had one for about 2½ years.” British specialists have given the patch a cautious welcome. Prof John Duncan, consultant neurologist at London’s National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, says: “One-third of people affected by epilepsy in the UK are not controlled with

Only 30% were warned about ante-natal depression by midwives, and most of the women said it took a few months before they realised that they had a problem. Just 22% sought medical help from their doctor at that point, and that was, perhaps, because only one in three was aware of the possibility of becoming depressed during pregnancy. Another 27% reported being asked how they felt emotionally during their pregnancy. Sally Russell, co-founder of Netmums, said depression and anxiety could make life extremely difficult for parents with a new baby. “Midwives can do a lot to help and reassure, so they should be open with mothers and fathers-to-be about the condition - and trained to spot the signs,” she said.

“Those suffering often don’t know who to talk to, so it is essential they know they can be open and honest about how they are feeling with midwives.” Health Minister Dr Dan Poulter, who announced the £25m fund to improve maternity services, said hospitals would be able to bid for en-suite facilities rooms where fathers can stay overnight - or facilities such as birthing pools. “A new arrival in the family is a joyous time, but it can present challenges for mums and families, particularly new families,” he said. “I want to help women and their partners as much as possible.” Back in May, the Government also pledged to recruit an extra 4,200 health visitors - and train them up to diagnose post-natal depression.

medication. Brain surgery is not suitable for all, and new treatment options are needed for the remainder. “Trigeminal stimulation offers an alternative, but we would need to see whether the benefit was maintained long-term.”

Place a roasting tin over a medium heat and add the oil from the can of anchovies and the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Roughly chop the anchovies and add to the pan, along with the chopped chestnuts. Season with freshly ground black pepper and pour in the beer. Score the pork belly skin with a sharp knife, at 1cm/½in intervals and rub with salt and olive oil. Place the pork into the roasting pan, making sure it covers the chestnut mixture. Roast for 30 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 160C/325F/Gas 3 and roast for a further three hours, or until the pork is very tender and the skin is crisp and golden-brown.

and add salt and freshly ground black pepper to the mixture according to taste. The stuffing is now ready to use, to stuff turkey or chicken. Chestnut stuffed mushrooms A simple stuffed mushroom can make a stunning supper – matching its dark flavours with its woodland partner the chestnut brings out the best of both. Ingredients 6 large mushrooms 80g/2oz butter 3 tbsp olive oil 6 sprigs thyme, picked 3 tbsp madeira 2 medium onions 6 Lincolnshire sausages 2 sprigs rosemary, picked 200g/7oz breadcrumbs 200g/7oz can of chestnuts, chopped Preparation method Pre heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Remove the stalks from the mushrooms to allow them to be stuffed and lay in a large oven dish. Place a little knob of butter in each one and

then drizzle the olive oil all over. Sprinkle the thyme into the mushrooms and finish with a few generous glugs of Madeira wine. Pop them in the oven for 20 minutes. Now for the stuffing, roughly chop your onions and soften in a frying pan with a little butter till golden. Remove the sausage skin and break the meat into the pan with the now golden onions. Tear in the remaining herbs, add the breadcrumbs and allow to cook through slightly. Chop the chestnuts and add to the pan and mix the contents well. After about 20 minutes remove the mushrooms and generously heap your stuffing into the mushrooms, piling it as high as you dare. Don’t worry about there being extra stuffing, simply shape them into little balls and place them around the mushrooms. Now return the dish to the oven for a further half hour. Serve when the stuffing is crisp and golden.

Add the garlic and fry for another minute. Remove from the heat to cool slightly, then pour into a bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients, including the cranberries and port, and mix well, adding enough egg to bind to form a thick paste. Fry a small knob of the mixture to test for seasoning,

Single male 30-something? You’re the perfect passenger! A SURVEY of more than 700 international cabin crew members, from 85 countries by Skyscanner has revealed their perfect airline passenger, and it’s a surprising result.

Travel apps Got a smartphone? Of course you have. Thanks to the smartphone, there is a world of products and services at our fingertips (or should that be fingertaps?) designed to make our lives easier. At least that’s what the best apps do. Well, you’ll know that there are many, many, many apps that don’t do much at all for us. Going on holiday? Planning a trip? Travelling for business? There are loads of paid and free travel apps to help you in some way, whether you need to check the status of the 21.30 to Heathrow, get a tip for somewhere to eat in a strange city, or find your favourite radio station to listen to while you’re waiting for the delayed departure of the 21.30 to Heathrow. Maybe you have just got a new smartphone, maybe you’ve already got a few apps, but what are the best? We have checked out hundreds of paid and free apps currently on the market to bring you our top 10 travel apps for each major platform - iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows. Top 10 best travel apps, as recommended by Skyscanner: 1. TourWrist The TourWrist app, particularly in its ipad version is immersive technology, combined with an ever increasing range of world destinations, it’s as close to ‘being there’ you can get without actually getting on a flight. 2. Remember the milk This is an easy way to keep track of your on-going to-do list while you’re on the move. If thoughts of work or your jobs list from home creep into your holiday fun pop them into RTM and they are remembered without being on your mind. 3. Pixlr-o-matic A great app for taking and editing pictures, Pixlr-omatic offers similar features

to Instagram but so much more. It’s very easy to use on the road as there’s no need to carry a massive expensive camera all the time, so it’s super-convenient for people who love photography. 4. Google Maps Google maps’ ‘offline map’ feature let you download several areas and mark places to visit in advance, so that I could find them with a GPSenabled map without a data connection. 5. Time Out It gives you all the info you need on local bars, club nights, gigs, restaurants and attractions. 6. Google Translate This app is very useful to have at hand when you are travelling to countries when you need a helping hand with the language! 7. TuneIn If you’re approaching middleage, and really *must* listen to Radio 4, or any other station, when you’re on holiday, then this app is for you! It allows you to tune in to over 70,000 radio stations for free. 8. TripIt TripIt organises your travel plans into an itinerary so all your trip details are in one place. I can’t be without it for managing Gareth (CEO)’s diary. It is so simple to populate and looks great too. 9. Find iPhone Does exactly what it says on the tin! I also recommend the Chess.com app. It’s great for keeping you occupied, especially when you’re waiting for a flight. 10. Skyscanner Skyscanner’s free app is one of the best free travel apps on the market. In fact, it’s the world’s most powerful and flexible flight search app. I use it to search and book cheap flights on the go. When you’re looking for travel inspiration you only have to spin the globe to see which destinations are cheapest to reach. Mobile flight search has never been so powerful! Source: Skyscanner

The perfect passenger according to cabin crew is male; he travels alone for pleasure rather than business, he’s in his 30s and is European. And, sorry Beckham but he’s not a celebrity, or at least not one who’d travel premium class as economy passengers top the perfect passenger survey. For cabin crew operating in UK airspace, it’s English men who are overwhelmingly voted as perfect passenger, with over half the vote. Men from Wales were deemed the least favourite passengers amongst British travellers. Seen by many as one of the most glamorous and desirable jobs, cabin crew are in the unique position to meet and greet people from all walks of life. However, with nearly 3 million people sitting in the sky every day, some regular habits and requests can understandably get under their skin more than others. According to the survey, the biggest gripe for a quarter of cabin crew (26%) is passengers who click their fingers at them to get their attention. Other annoying habits at 30,000ft include the scramble to leave the plane before the seat belt signs are switched off (13%), passengers trying to cram too much hand baggage in the overhead lockers (11%) and one in ten say their pet peeve is when passengers talk through the safety demonstration, suggesting that many frequent flyers do not pay attention in spite of increasing requests by cabin staff to do to. Stuffing rubbish in the seat compartments

(7%) also completed the list of cabin crew gripes. Skyscanner’s Sam Poullain said: “This is the first time that we’ve surveyed international cabin crew and the findings give us a real insight into what they really think of passengers. It’s interesting to see that it’s the men who get the vote for the perfect passenger, and while many of us would love to travel business or first class, cabin crew prefer to work in economy. “It must be frustrating for cabin crew when

passengers try and cram as much hand baggage in the overhead locker as humanly possible, however carrying only hand luggage can save passengers quite a lot of money as the cost of putting baggage in the hold can be very expensive. Unless airlines charge less for hold luggage, I don’t see this changing. ” The most annoying habits of air passengers 1.Clicking fingers to get your attention - 26% 2.Leaving seat at the end before the light goes off - 13%

3.Stuffing too many bags into overhead locker - 11% 4.Complaining there’s no space for their bag in the locker - 10% 5.Talking through the safety demo - 9% 6.Asking for more blankets/ pillows - 8% 7.Stuffing rubbish in the seat pocket - 7% 8.Asking for a different meal - 6% 9.Ringing the attendant bell to complain about temperature - 6% 10.Asking for a specific brand of drink - 4%

of international marketing. The advert coincides with the release of the new Hobbit film. “It’s noticeable that on an ANZ flight they sit up and take notice during the pre-flight briefing – expectations of this part of the journey have cer-

tainly been heightened. A further feature of Air New Zealand’s support of the Hobbit Trilogy will be a themed aircraft which will be revealed prior to the global premiere of the film, “An unexpected journey” in Wellington on the 28th November.

ON THE ROAD WITH JAV Behind the Wheel

Email: Jav@canarianweekly.com

Would you Adam and Eve it? Vauxhall’s cute little winner! VAUXHALL’S new small car, the Adam, is a big deal for the company because they are bidding to play catch-up with major opposition. For example, BMW sell hundreds of thousands of their MINI, Citroen’s C3 is flying out of showroom doors and Fiat’s 500 is an international hit. So to compete with these funky little cars, Vauxhall have had to throw away their usual design rules - staid, straightforward, even bland and come up with something very non-Vauxhall. And that’s just what the company have done. British designer Mark Adams was given a free rein to come up

with something much more individual than the rest of the Vauxhall line-up. As a result, Britain’s roads will be a much more colourful place when the Adam arrives next year. It’s priced well and, like their rivals, there’s not much space inside. But the quality is topnotch and Vauxhall have gone going for a more modern look. Safety-wise, the Adam comes complete with a full roster of airbags, plus plenty of electronic intervention systems to keep you safe. Vauxhall boast of their ability to create more than one million combinations of colour and trim when purchasers spec their motor. There’s a choice of a wide variety of exterior and interior colours, equipment and materials,

Aston Martin up for sale?

ASTON MARTIN’S largest shareholder, Investment Dar Company, have reportedly approached several interested parties about the British brand. The Kuwaiti company, reportedly looking to sell their 64% stake in the company, are rumoured to have hired the Rothschild Group to advise them during the process. Little is known about who are interested in the company, but two sources have told Business Week that the Mahindra & Mahindra company could be a candidate.

Lotus have also been in the mix, apparently, and another possibility are Toyota. The The IDC are said to have hired an auditor to conduct a preliminary review of Aston Martin about two months ago. They are reportedly asking 629 million euros (£503m) for their stake, which would enable them to recoup what they invested when they bought Aston Martin from Ford in 2007. Breaking even isn’t ideal, obviously, but IDC are said to needs the funds to reorganise huge debts after missing a payment on an Islamic bond in 2009.

16 November - 23 November 2012

range achieves a combined 56.5mpg and emits just 118g/ km. Later in its life, the Adam will also be the first Vauxhall to adopt the new-generation, small petrol engine featuring direct injection and forced induction, plus an all-new, sixspeed gearbox. At 3.7 metres the Adam is almost exactly the same length as the MINI. Suspension is MacPherson struts and the wheels will be 16-18 inches. Overall, the impression is that the Adam will be a hit for Vauxhall. They’ve got the looks just right - and the handling, always pretty good on small Vauxhalls, should be enhanced with the Macphersons. All three engines (two 1.4s and the 1.2) deliver average economy of around 55mpg, which isn’t especially good

these days. However, Vauxhall refuse to fit a diesel engine on the grounds of cost – and because they don’t believe buyers want or need it. Other running costs should be reasonable, especially with Vauxhall’s ground-breaking lifetime warranty to provide peace of mind. It can be ordered now, and first cars will arrive in the showrooms at the end of February. Prices for Adam Jam start at £11,255, moving up to £12,650 for Adam Glam and £13,150 for Adam Slam. There’s talk that Mark Adams has already designed a convertible version of the Adam, which could be just over a year away. But Vauxhall are remaining tight-lipped about it. For now!

and the headlining can even be personalised, including an LED-lit starlight roof! It also features three trim levels: Jam (fashionable/ colourful), Glam (elegant/ sophisticated) and Slam (racy/ sporty). In a nod to the Seventies’ vinyl roof fad, it features a “floating” roof. That doesn’t mean it’s a convertible but

rather, it is made of a different material and colour. In essence, it’s a styling gimmick, but it actually looks quite good and suits the overall design. It is initially offered with three petrol engines (1.2-litre 70bhp, 1.4-litre bhpPS and 1.4-litre bhpPS), all of which are available with Start/Stop technology. The most economical of the

SEAT’S five-door Leon is set to become the first in a “family” of cars, planned by the Spanish company.

Meet SEAT’S new ‘pride’ of Leons

Matthias Rabe, Vicepresident of their R&D department, confirmed at the launch that the sportier, three-door Leon will be unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. He added: “The Leon SC will feature a much more dramatically-sloping roofline and a shorter wheelbase - an advantage of building the car on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform.” A Leon ST estate will then arrive at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, before the high-performance rangetopping Cupra models follow in early 2014. The three and five-door Leon will be offered as Cupra models, with Rabe’s current five-door Leon company car already featuring development Cupra parts. He also said that an estate Cupra model was a possibility, and that SEAT are watching the success of the Ford Focus ST Estate with interest. Further into the future, the company executive ahead, Rabe also hinted that its long-

awaited Volkswagen Tiguanbased crossover would arrive in 2014. SEAT have been flirting with the idea of adding a crossover to their line-up, having shown the Tribu concept in 2007 and the Nissan Qashqai-sized IBX concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

The Audi Q3 is also built at SEAT’s Martorell plant, making production of the crossover even more likely. When asked about the size of the new SUV, Rabe said: “The Taigun, shown at the Sao Paulo Motor Show last month, is a great concept, especially for South America with its

rules on 1.0-litre engines. “But our SUV would be a car you could use every day, on your own, as a couple or as a small family. A Q3-sized SUV is also where the [market] growth is, even in Europe. “Maybe after that, we could look at a smaller SUV, but our first will be Tiguan-sized.”

Terrace B in Dreamland THEY have hit the post a few times before, and now Terrace Bar B have their first Division One win. They roared back from 5-2 down to beat out-of-sorts Dreamers 7-5, with Jean striking another blow for girl power. She beat Gavin, and this seemed to inspire her teammates as Dreamers fell apart. Scuds was the Terrace B hero, winning all three games, and the vital last frame against Steve. The win takes them off the bottom and dumps Bar La Caña into the basement. But they could easily have won as well on Tuesday, losing a barnstormer with Tenerife Hammers C 7-5. La Caña were good value for their early 3-1 lead, before Hammers C ground their way back into it. A seven-baller from Shaun helped their effort, but La Caña had their chances to save a draw at least. However, in the battle of the skippers, Tony beat Carl in the last rubber to give Hammers another tight win. At the top, Gaffers A notched

their 11th win of the season as they smoothly accounted for Phoenix Potters, despite Graham beating Neil in the opening frame. Neil didn't even chalk his cue! He would win his two other frames and, with solid back-up, Gaffers A got home with some ease. Tenerife Hammers A kept in touch at the top, winning 8-4 at Inn The Pink despite Jambo dropping another couple of frames. Palms A made it four straight wins, but they were made to work for it at the end by The Peacocks. They were 5-1 and 6-2 up before the Peacocks found their form. They rattled in three frames to set up a last-gasp decider which, in truth, they should have won, only for JT to find a six-ball clearance from somewhere! They face Hammers A on Tuesday in what will be another thriller. Something is up with Terrace A. They are now five without a win after another poor night, at Toscales A this time. The hosts are going nicely and the 8-4 win caught the eye. They will

Despite a maximum from Gary, the San Blas side lost the trebles and the match - a result that gives Xtreme Sports a 14-point cushion at the top. They enjoyed a fine tussle with Phoenix Bar and went home with a 6-2 win. Phoenix Bar new-boy Kev hit his first

Tenerife captain’s return? Coruxo 1 CD Tenerife 1 CD Marino 2 Rayo B 0 IT’S now a record 12 matches unbeaten at the start of the season, and every fan would have taken that at the beginning. But Tenerife’s lead at the top of the table is just a point and they have drawn five matches now. Two in two, as well. They are also just a couple of points better off than they were at this stage last season, and we all know what happened then. But this column takes the “glass half full” view to life. This was another tricky away match, played in foreign conditions, and another question answered. Not many sides will win in Coruxo and, while it was a scrappy point, there were more positives. Captain Sergio Aragoneses had a stormer, cementing his position as the best keeper outside the top flight. They say a good keeper is worth 15 points a season. Well, he put two in the bank last Sunday. Tenerife were ahead just after the half-hour when Aridane notched his ninth goal of the season. They held that lead until half-time, before the hosts tore at Tenerife in the second half. Time and again, Aragoneses stood firm until Antunez finally hit home 20 minutes from time. Try as they may, Coruxo could not get that winning goal and Tenerife returned with an excellent point. A little closer to home, CD Marino fans were delighted with the 2-0 win at home to Rayo Vallecano B. Marino have been better recently, and this was no surprise victory. Baldwin got both the goals in the second half and, with an easier run of fixtures coming up, they will be confident of climbing the table.

I’m not sure the President’s boast of finishing 11th at least will come true, but they do now have a foothold. This weekend they travel to face Ourense, a match they can get something from, while CD Tenerife host Marino de Luanco, who have been brilliant at home but are poor travellers. An opening-day win at Sanse is their sole away success, and their 3-0 spanking at Atletico Madrid B is an indicator of where they are. The match kicks off on Sunday at Noon and is live on Oasis Fm. Meanwhile, as we edge towards the end of the year, we also get closer to another dreaded transfer window. There have been mumblings that the squad could be strengthened, and there is no doubt that we need another striker and, maybe, an extra midfielder. This week, an old favourite turned a few heads with talk of a possible return. Ayoze Garcia made over 160 appearance for Tenerife in an up-and-down career before he left in 2010. Tenerife had just been relegated from La Liga and he

16 November - 23 November 2012

took the chance to stay at the highest level with Sporting Gijon. The fans were fine with him leaving. He had previously been captain for a spell, and he was a key member of the promotion-winning side the year before, even though he didn’t always see eye to eye with coach Jose Luis Oltra. Injuries hampered his time at Sporting, and he reached an agreement to leave the club a few weeks back. He is now a free agent and says he is close to being fully fit. He has been back living in Tenerife, and training on his own as he tries to get himself a club. When asked about the chance of returning to Santa Cruz he said: “Of course, I would love to hear from the club. "Of course, but there has been no contact so far. There is something on the horizon so we shall see.” The “horizon” he talks about is said to be Elche, who are flying high at the top of the Second Division. It would be hard to see how he could turn them down to play for his boyhood club, and he would be expensive.

But stranger things have happened. His cartilage injury is clearing up and he seems a more mature player from the one who departed a few seasons ago. His scenario reminds me of Suso

have a squad which is competitive enough to achieve the goal of promotion to the Second Division. And with the great fans, that really helps. They are the best fans.”

and Cristo Martin. It would be a real coup to have him, and Ayoze says he has been keeping up-to-date with the side’s fortunes “Tenerife? I wish them well,” he adds. “I believe they

Horoscopes of the week Scorpio

(October 24th-November 22nd) Why don’t you sit down and work out the issues which are responsible for the change of pace your life has recently adopted? Your stars indicate that a solution is far easier to find than you think. Happy times for many of you Scorpios linked to Pisceans, who seem to know just what to say to impress you SAGIT TARIUS (November 23rdDecember 21st) Jupiter, your ruling planet, is helping you to realise some pretty major dreams you have. There are a lot of rumours going around at the moment, so try to act on fact and not fiction and you will avoid any unnecessary problems. Make sure you back up your work if you use a computer because mistakes are likely. C A P R I C O R N (December 22ndJanuary 20th) Don’t let down friends, no matter how attractive certain people may seem because they are relying on you far more than you think. And when you see the company they are keeping, you’ll be glad you made the effort. Older family members prove trying as they try to tell you how to live your life. Stand your ground because there’s news of a business breakthrough on the way. AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th) Familiar people may not give you the support they once pledged, so be prepared to make alternate arrangements. This is one week where you must take full responsibility for work and personal issues. But you know the saying: if a job is worth doing then it is worth doing well. So make your recent effort count. Overseas links promise an exciting future. PISCES (February 20th-March 20th) Work is proving harder to get through of late but do make that “personal” call to find out where you stand because it can clear up a few points. Don’t make more of a mix-up in work than is

Page 48

necessary, or you could end up stepping on some very important toes.

ARIES (March 21stApril 20th) Jealousy on Sunday could lead you to say things you regret, so take caution. You may want to slow down a work matter which relates to finances because there is still much you have to learn before you sign away your money or your name. Don’t judge a new person in your friend’s life too rashly. Time will reveal all you need to know, so cool it for now. TAURUS (April 21stMay 21st) New friends make for a happier you. However, you seem to have that typical madness back in your life with a vengeance, and even the simplest of jobs, such as doing the shopping, picking up the kids or getting to work on time, will be thrown into disarray. If you don’t laugh you’ll cry, so try to keep a mirthful spirit. GEMINI (May 22ndJune 21st) Work responsibilities are proving too much, and you may want to think about delegating because your stars show that others are willing to share the load. You have been busy doing nothing, and it’s time to get stuck in - or you will miss out on the excellent opportunities your chart is presenting to you. CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd) With the confidence you are exuding right now, you can achieve the impossible. All you have

to do is to decide where your priorities lie and, more importantly, with whom. That’s because your chance to excel makes the coming week one which you will not forget in a hurry. A new person in your career is set to become a very important part of your future. LEO (July 24thAugust 23rd) You spent so long last month trying to get focus on your life and, now that you actually want privacy, you can’t seem to get a moment alone. There is plenty of time for you to enjoy the romance on offer, but you may want to get your work done first – and that’s looking more and more interesting by the hour. VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd) Spend Monday sorting out those issues from last week, and don’t let a setback at work put you off of your intended goal. There is much you can do to enhance your reputation by showing how well you can manage in a crisis. Don’t borrow what you know you can’t pay back, no matter how much it may impress a certain person. LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd) Strange circumstances could see you having to give up some of your private space in the week ahead, so just try to make the best of an awkward situation. Family prove trying, but things you do for them now will not be forgotten. In fact, they could be the key to you getting back on an even keel.
