FLU JABS ARE JUST THE JOB! THE Canary Islands Government is investing 878,000 euros for flu jabs this winter to avoid the pitfalls of last year.

There will be 225,000 units available throughout the Archipelago and, from Monday, you can arrange vaccination appointments for the following week. The 2013/2014 campaign against flu was actually launched throughout the islands this week and, the Basque country apart, the Canaries will be the first in Spain to begin vaccinating inhabitants, especially those most at risk. Canaries Health Minister Bridget Mendoza says one of the main objectives of the campaign is “to reduce the mortality associated with influenza and the impact of the disease on society” which is why the Archipelago is getting cracking straight away. She added: “These campaigns are aimed at protecting people who have a higher risk of developing complications from the viral illness, and those in occupations who provide services essential to the

community.” The highrisk groups, who will be eligible for a free flu jab include those aged over 65, the chronically ill and the morbidly obese. So if you are an Expat, in the health system here and fall into one of these categories, you will also be eligible for a

flu jab. Another objective is to improve the process from last year, and increase the number of the population covered. Last year, the process collapsed as there were several problems encountered with vaccines, and only about

40% (125,000) of the agreed target were vaccinated. The Health Minister’s aim this year is to avoid the same setbacks, especially as the World Health Organisation (WHO) states that optimal coverage must reach at least 70-75%.

Data provided by the Director General of Public Health reveals that in 2011 that there were “2,000 deaths from influenza causes. “The vast majority were over 65 years, so this vaccine is trying to prevent problems or complications with

the disease in high-risk groups.” Vaccinations could reduce the mortality rates by half, but many people do not believe the disease is that serious. Others are sure the vaccine actually causes flu. In fact, the risk of side-effects or allergic reactions following a flu jab is extremely low. The most important side-effect is soreness where the needle enters the arm. It can last about two days, but does not prevent normal activities. Pharmacies are working with the Canarian Government to identify those who will be eligible for the vaccine. In addition, a full media campaign will begin on Monday, and an electronic brochure “infogripecanarias” is available. Studies show that the vaccine reduces hospitalisations by around 70%, and death by 85% among patients. Meanwhile, among those in nursing homes, the vaccine reduces the risk of hospitalisation by 50%, the risk of pneumonia by 60% and the risk of dying between 75 and 80%. You can ring 012 to obtain your appointment from Monday (23rd September).

Immigrants’ boat tragedy

THE African press reports that at least one person has died and many are missing after a boat carrying dozens of migrants capsized. The increase of violent clashes in the Sahel region of Africa has fuelled extra s of inhabitants desperate to cross the strait from Morocco to Spain. Their aim is usually to gain access to Europe, but many die along the way each year. Lifeguards have picked up 157 people from various vessels, and police have arrested a further 19 people who have landed on the Canary Islands.

Belgian tour reps’ trip

AROUND 120 representatives from travel agencies run by Jetair, the Belgian tour operator, have joined 10 journalists on a familiarisation visit of Tenerife. Tenerife Tourism chief Miguel Angel Santos said: “It is a great opportunity to promote the attractions of the Island for Jetair.” The company represents 68% of the holiday packages sold in Belgium, and 80% of those are flight only. From January to July this year, about 80,000 Belgian tourists visited Tenerife.

Sun cream shocker!

GLASWEGIAN mum Marie Goldie, 37, on holiday in Tenerife with her partner and two teenage children, was taken to hospital days after she started using Piz Buin 1 Day Long sun crème. It contains the preservative ethylisothiazolinone, or MI, which can cause rashes, lumps, blisters, itchy eyes and facial swelling. Johnson & Johnson, which makes the cream, removed the chemical from the best-selling product rapidly, but will not withdraw the product, yet! It insists: “It provides safe and effective sun protection. It contains only permitted ingredients at levels well within EU standards set by regulators.” Yet the company says it is updating the product for 2014 - without M1.

Jobs and People

Jobs and people - that’s the focus of new Tenerife Cabildo President, Carlos Alonso who presented his priorities this week supported by incoming VicePresident, Aurelio Abreu. Commitment to employment and attention to people are the priority as a new era dawns in the Tenerife Cabildo. At the press conference he highlighted the immediate implementation of the Action Plan for Employment, with a budget of two million euros that will allow SMEs to hire more than a thousand people in a year. Carlos Alonso said: “The Cabildo will become the engine of job creation in contact with

citizens in all areas”. In terms of economic prospects he stressed that they must obey the “effort” made ​​ by the institution this year to reduce debt. Alonso insisted attention to people as another of his priorities ensuring the maintenance and good service in the centres of Cabildo. In this regard he announced that next year will be crucial in health infrastructure. Aurelio Abreu, responsible for Welfare, Health and Dependency, said there will be a focus on “related services to disability, gender violence and children.” As for hospitals in the north and south, he said that in early 2014 they will start the emergency department and a 50-bed hospital for the chronically ill in the north of the island. Regarding the work of

the South Hospital, apparently it is once again scheduled to begin later this month. “Another of the priorities of this new stage is to support entrepreneurship to support activities being conducted by the City Council through the different areas and it is also an excellent tool for promoting new business opportunities in a crisis situation that exists today, “said Alonso. This plan, already underway, is to facilitate access to funding through grant lines for the implementation and consolidation of business initiatives, promote training and simplify the legal environment and administrative environment in which companies develop their activities, including measures to promote entrepreneurial skills of Tenerife.

In terms of tourism, improved connectivity will remain a priority for the council. In the past year the efforts of Tenerife Tourism directly contributed to the creation of 36 new direct routes by leading companies, the creation of two new bases for air operations (Norwegian and Vueling) and more than a million additional places. About connectivity to West Africa, he explained that the goal is to improve links with Senegal, Morocco, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau and Equatorial Guinea as well, “the island is then less an island” and have more job opportunities. Carlos Alonso also referred to the tourism sector and the need to attract more visitors from Russian and Nordic markets for summer 2014.

Operation Bull Dog N a ti o n a l Police are asking the public for help in relation to an arrest that took place back in July as part of Operation Bull Dog.

A man from El Fraile, in the municipality of Arona, identified by the initials JMGH was arrested for allegedly molesting at least five

children and taking advantage of his position as a martial arts teacher. The alleged crime came to light following a search of his house on suspicion of possessing and distributing child pornography, crimes of which he is also accused. The suspect, now in prison, has a 20 year history of working in jobs where the common denominator has been the regular contact with minors in the south of

Tenerife, e.g. as a driver of school buses, martial arts instructor and owner of a gym. Investigators have so far found evidence that five children between the ages of 5 and 9 years have been victims of sexual abuse. The accused focused on children from problem families, promising rewards in exchange for sexual favours Neighbours and friends described him

as a person with very few social relationships, leading a “sullen, solitary and austere life,” focusing on his work and martial arts. The National Police has requested the assistance of the public to provide any information that may lead to the identification of further potential victims. You can contact the Crime Group via telephone 922849572 or sctenerife. bppjdet@policia.es

Shipping firm goes bananas! THE successful story of how a German-based, Canarian shipping company built up an astonishing banana business over a century has just unfolded.

What started as a sole export trade of bananas from the Canaries to Northern Europe 100 years ago has now developed into a freshproduce service - tomatoes, papayas, avocados and, of course, bananas for Europe and all the islands’ two million inhabitants and annual 10 million visitors. In 1913, short-sea shipping company Oldenburg-Portugiesische Dampfschiffs-Rhederei (OPDR), which was founded 31 years earlier, launched a regular liner service between the Ca-

nary Islands and Northern Europe. Despite losing its entire 19-strong fleet during World War II - or forfeiting some boats to the allies at the end of the war - and having its Hamburg HQ bombed, OPDR bounced back and regrouped. By the late Fifties, it had re-established its Hamburg base with a full complement of 28 multi-purpose vessels, later replaced by container ships. And as the Canarian bananas became more and more popular

20th September - 26th September 2013

among the European consumers at the beginning of the 20th century, OPDR decided to integrate the Islands into their regular liner service. In 1913, OPDR built two so-called “fruit steam vessels” especially designed for the fruit export trade from the Canary Islands to Northern Europe. Today, it is one of the biggest logistic companies in the Canaries, connecting the islands with the rest of Europe. The company now has a new base here in Santa

Cruz, and another in Gran Canaria, as well as those in Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and, of course, the Hamburg headquarters. OPDR has more than 200 employees ashore as well as over 100 seafarers on board its seven modern container vessels. The shipping company is the only provider, with up to four weekly calls in our own Santa Cruz port, and others in Las Palmas (Gran Canaria) and Arrecife (Lanzarote). And all the other smaller islands, such as Fuerteventura and La Gomera, are also being served. Till Ole Barrelet, who heads OPDR, says: “With only five days of transit between Felixstowe and Santa Cruz, we offer the fastest connection to the Canary Islands in the market. “We offer our customers integrated supply chain solutions, including trucking, warehousing and customs clearance.” Klaus Elsner, Regional Branch Manager who has worked for OPDR in the Canaries for more than 15 years, says: “One hundred years is just the beginning. “We see great potential in the Canary Islands’ market because the numbers of tourists has risen in the past few years. But we will also focus on the export market on the Islands. “Fresh products such as tomatoes, bananas, papayas and avocados are of great quality and can be exported in 40ft x 45ft reefer containers from the Canary Islands to Northern Europe within six days.”

Grubby gadgets THIS is my fave story of the week. Oh my god, OCD sufferers and clean freaks do not read if you’re easily offended! Consumer champion Which? campaigns to make your lives fairer. It provides advice which helps us make informed decisions on services and products. From time to time, it publishes surveys, and the latest one makes me want to reach for the anti-bac wipes. The Which? investigation found that popular gadgets such as tablets, smart-phones and keyboards can harbour more germs than a toilet seat and, in some cases, could cause health issues. Researchers swabtested 30 tablets, 30 smart-phones and 30 keyboards to dish the dirt on popular technology. In one case they found a tablet containing 600 units per swab of an illness-causing bacteria called staphylococcus aureus, which, in the right conditions, can create toxins that can lead to vomiting and diarrhoea. By comparison, a typical toilet seat has a staphylococcus aureus count of less than 20. High amounts, over 400, of the germ were also discovered on one other tablet and keyboards they tested. The bug enterobacteria, which can include

strains of infections such as e.coli and salmonella, was found on some gadgets. High-risk levels, more than 1,000 units of enterobacteria per swab, were present in eight of the 30 tablets tested, 14 of the keyboards and seven of the smartphones. The worst tablet had a count of 15,000 units per swab, with four phones and five keyboards also registering this level. By comparison, when they tested a toilet seat, they found less than 10 units per swab of enterobacteria. An expert microbiologist said that if these levels of bacteria were found on the hands of anyone working in the food industry, then he or she would have to be retrained immediately in basic hygiene. Which? editor Richard Headland, said: “It’s shocking that a smartphone or tablet can harbour more germs than a toilet seat. Gadgets should be cleaned regularly and thoroughly to avoid germs that could lead to illness.” It is essential to keep gadgets clean, but be sure to do it without damaging your technology. More information on how to clean your gadgets properly can be found on the Which? Website www.which. co.uk Makes you think doesn’t it? Until next week…

Mato is hoping for a healthy solution ANA MATO, Spain’s Health Minister, has pledged to work with doctors and nurses from most of Spain’s federal regions to enable them to reduce waiting lists. At a Barcelona meeting with representatives from the medical profession featuring all regions except some communities, Mato called for health workers’ suggestions as to how to run the service more efficiently. She urged the 17 Spanish regions to work with her, in particular

their health workers, and agreed to leave it up to doctors to prioritise patients when addressing the evergrowing waiting lists for consultations and operations in public hospitals. She said at a later press conference that the regional health minister for was absent because she had only just taken over the role, following the election of Andalucía’s new president, Susana Díaz, this week. And she said her Cantabrian counterpart could not be there because she was cutting the red tape on a newlyopened hospital. But Mato could not

say why the ministers for Asturias, Ceuta and Melilla did not attend. She will call another meeting next month with the health authorities from all regions, who will be accompanied by doctors and nurses, to view the nation’s progress amid the government’s own healthcare reforms. Boi Ruiz, Catalunya’s regional health department leader, said the issues of doctors’ and nurses’ waiting lists, plus more efficient health-centre management, had already been under scrutiny for some time in the north-eastern territory. But he complained that

the proposed pact Ana Mato presented did not address the lack of financial compensation for Catalunya when paying relocation costs for nurses travelling to the region to work from other parts of Spain. A Royal Decree covering healthcare was set to approve the creation of a nurse’s relocation expenses fund, but this has not yet been dealt with, said Ruiz. Those absent from the meeting were the northern communities of Asturias and Cantabria, the southern region of Andalucía, and the Spanish-owned cities of Ceuta and Melilla on the northern Moroccan coast,

San Miguel Lions hoping to bottle kids’ vital funds PEOPLE have been asking why San Miguel Lions’ charity shop is collecting plastic bottle tops. And the answer’s simple!

They can be cashed in to make money, and the Lions were alerted by a local paper story about the “Bottle top kid” and how the family were raising funds for her. Lions Secretary Ralph Solomon said: “We started collecting and eventually wondered whether we could give even more help. “So we met the family and discovered that their daughter, Ainara, was in urgent need of a specially-equipped wheelchair.” He added: “The cost was over 5,000 euros, and Social Services agreed to pay half if we paid the balance. And, having been introduced to Ainara and seeing how brave she was, we did not hesitate. “Now as the picture shows, you can see her in the new wheelchair with San Miguel Lions Louis and President

Nan, together with fellow Lions Val and Jackie.” Ainara has just retuned to her San Miguel home from the mainland, having had another operation. “She and her family have no more need for the bottle tops at the moment,” said Ralph. “But she does require some special equipment, again at great cost, and we will see if we can afford to help her.” But it does not mean San Miguel Lions will stop collecting bottle tops because they have discovered, through Ainara’s family, that there are several other children on the Island needing similar operations.

“Having found out where the tops are received, boxed and sealed, we felt we should continue to help these unfortunate kids,” said Ralph. San Miguel Lions have always been great fund-raisers for the less-fortunate here on the Island. And, with these youngsters in mind, Ralph is asking for bottle-top donations from individuals, bars or restaurants to help them collect as many as possible. They can be dropped off at the Lions’ charity shop in Silencio. Incidentally, the club are staging their first event of the new Lion year – a Summer Fare next Saturday (28th Sept) in front of their

Silencio Charity Shop, which will also be open. It runs from 10am and will feature stalls, a bouncy castle, games, snacks and music, plus some special guests. And there’s a free cuppa on offer for everyone. The event also gives you a chance to unload all those bottle tops you’ve saved! If you are interested, bring along your stall at no cost, but please make a donation to the Lions Club charities. There will also be an opportunity to donate items to the “Baby Bank”. For more info about the bottle tops or the Summer Fayre, phone Ralph on 685 542 128.

Buying over here? Get expert advice UK expats should tell anyone planning to buy a place over here to get free advice from the British Embassy staff.

That's the advice from the Embassy, who will be installed at the exhibition, A Place in the

Sun Live, at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre next weekend (27th-29th Sept). Potential property buyers in Tenerife or on the mainland can also get lots of consumerfriendly information from a new Foreign Office video on YouTube, on gov.uk and other websites which are

packed with advice on how to do your homework before taking the plunge. Spain continues to be among the most popular choices for Britons buying homes overseas, despite the economic crisis and well-publicised property scandals. The Spanish College of Registrars says that

Travelodge blooms in Spain TRAVELODGE, the popular chain of budget stop-overs, opened its sixth hotel in Spain on Wednesday - and has plans for more expansion there. The company, which has added its third and largest hotel in Madrid, at a cost of 12 million, offers rooms from just 29 euros a night at the purpose-built, 98-room property in the city’s Julian Camarillo commercial district. So far, Travelodge has invested 80 million euros and created almost 100 new jobs in Spain, with three Madrid hotels, two in Barcelona

and another in Valencia. Managing director Paul Harvey said: “The budget hotel concept is a growing success in Spain. All our Spanish properties are trading well, and, from next year, we want to focus on growing our presence across other big cities, such as Granada and Seville. “As a result of the double-dip recession in Spain, we have seen a significant rise in corporate and leisure Spanish travellers switching from high-end hotel brands to Travelodge. “Spaniards want their

20th September - 26th September 2013

euro to work hard for them, and, as a result, they are making savvier choices to obtain real value for money.” He added: “We believe the opportunity to grow in Spain is still huge because the branded budget hotel sector represents just 2% of total hotel stock. “This is substantially lower than other European countries such as France, which is 24% and the UK, at just under 20%. The chain now comprises 517 hotels: 500 in the UK, 11 in Ireland and six in Spain.

over the past three years, Brits have bought more than 12,000 properties in Spain, representing nearly 20% of all properties bought by foreigners. Most have bought properties without experiencing any issues. But this is little comfort to the minority caught up in serious property problems, who suffer the emotional distress and personal and financial effects. Giles Paxman, British Ambassador to Spain, says: “The British Embassy cannot take action on individual cases, but we continue to engage with the Spanish authorities at all levels to encourage them to address property issues affecting British nationals. “We have seen the devastating effect that property problems can have, and we want to help prospective buyers avoid the potential pitfalls. “They can visit the Spain-specific property advice pages on gov.uk, watch the FCO’s new video on YouTube and

talk to our staff at the exhibition. “All three offer helpful tips which will help future buyers purchase safely, so that they can enjoy all the wonderful things that living in Spain can offer.” Mr Paxman added: “One thing that just about all people affected by property problems say is that they want to make sure others don’t go through the same situation. “People already living here can play an important role by encouraging friends and family to do their research and get impartial legal advice before moving abroad.”

Foreign Office staff will be on Stand B32 at A Place in the Sun Live, and more information about the event can be found at www.aplaceinthesun.com The Foreign Office publishes a range of advice on buying property and living in Spain, including: *Buying property in Spain: www.gov.uk/ how-to-buy-propertyin-spain *Property advice video - Living the Dream https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=ZjBhE5 PhE80&feature=youtu be_gdata_player * Living in Spain: www.gov. uk/living-in-spain

SIAM PARK is celebrating its fifth birthday after welcoming more than three million visitors in that time.

Numerous national and international awards bestowed on Siam Park and its water attractions highlight it, via Trip Advisor, as the world’s most spectacular and modern theme park. The wonderful water kingdom has received recognition several times by leisure experts, as well as by visitors themselves. Tourists have used the online holiday planner and evaluator Trip Advisor to vote for Siam Park and, thanks to their recommendations, the Tenerife tourist magnet has been given the Travellers Choice Award, against other theme parks with far greater investments. Some five years have passed since Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, from Thailand, visited Tenerife to inaugurate the innovative Siam Park, which quickly developed into the best holiday and leisure activity in the South of Tenerife. This has been spelled out by countless comments from

visitors representing many countries, who contribute their opinions daily on various platforms, together with more than 80.000 fans who discuss Siam Park on Facebook. Exciting slides and magical attractions, together with mysterious places surrounded by rich vegetation, and the biggest artificial wave of the world, have developed this park into an unforgettable site. And what makes it even more special is that it can be enjoyed at all times of the year, thanks to the Canary Islands’ mild climate. Since its 2008 opening, Siam Park has fostered Tenerife’s image as a tourist destination, offering an extensive range of activities and

novelties for the whole family. Ecological awareness and global recognition are the key factors for its international position as one of the best allround water parks in the world. Among the most important awards are “Best Waterpark in Europe (2012/2013), and the Most Outstanding Attractions such as The Dragon. Siam Park has also received the Blue Award, the Executive Board Award and the Globe Award 2010, plus various other honours. It has sets high standards regarding environmentalism, just like Loro Parque, and uses newly-developed technologies for each detail. These philosophies, as well as the strong

environmental awareness, represent the main factors for its leading position in the world.

Paddington Bear, the Firth edition! THE voice of Oscar winner Colin Firth will be heard as a computer-generated Paddington Bear in a new film.

It will be based on the adventures of the duffle-coated character, who started life in book form more than 50 years ago. Firth, who won his gong in the leading role of the 2010 film The King’s Speech, joins Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville, who plays Mr Brown, Nicole Kidman, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. David Heyman, the Harry Potter producer, is behind the film, based on the best-selling books, which have sold more than 35 million copies over the years. Apart from Firth’s animated character,

the rest of the film will feature humans. “Paddington will be computer-generated, and I will speak his lines with, I suspect, a slight Peruvian flavour,” said Firth. “Every other character in the film will be a real, live human-being, but the idea is that Paddington will have something of me in his DNA. “That’s because

I’m going to do some sessions wearing one of those helmets with cameras to capture my face muscles - and all that data will, somehow, be incorporated into Paddington.” Author Michael Bond created Paddington Bear, who is famous for his love of marmalade sandwiches. He was named after the London station where he was found,

and first appeared in the 1958 book A Bear Called Paddington. It recalled how he was packed off from darkest Peru and made his way to Britain, where he was adopted by the Brown family. The books’ success led to the creation of a popular children’s toy in wellies, and the film should be on general release in November next year.

Grand Theft Auto steals cash record – in a flash! THE Grand Theft Auto V video game has taken a record-breaking £496m in just 24 hours! It grossed the huge sum on Wednesday’s opening day of sales, according to the distributor, Take-Two Interactive. That’s almost three times the £170m budget used to create and promote the game from Edinburgh-based developer Rockstar North. It smashed the singleday game sales’ record, set last November by Call Of Duty: Black Ops II, which made £310m. Strauss Zelnick, the company’s chief executive, said: “Once again, the team at Rockstar Games have outdone themselves, setting the entertainment indus-

Page 12

try’s new standard for creativity, innovation and excellence.” And that is without the enormous sales bound to be generated in some major markets, including Japan and Brazil, where it is not for sale yet!

Mr Zelnick added: “Beginning at midnight on Monday, consumers around the world gathered in anticipation to be among the first to experience the evolution of this remarkable series. “In North America alone, more than 8,300 stores opened their doors at midnight to welcome fans.” It has already received widespread critical acclaim, games website IGN calling it a “masterpiece”, and one of the greatest video games ever made. Edge magazine said it was a “remarkable achievement” that sent a message to the rest of the industry saying: “Beat that”.

Spanish Property Taxes Wincham can make you aware of the facts.

Whether you already own property in Spain, or are looking to buy, you will need to be up to date with the taxation applicable to you. Both residents and non-residents will be liable to submit tax information to the authorities to avoid hefty fines and interest becoming due. ISD/Spanish Inheritance Tax Wincham can help with assessing the potential liability and provide a solution to ensure that your beneficiaries can inherit your assets as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Although in the UK it is the Estate which pays Inheritance Tax, in Spain the beneficiary is responsible for payment of this tax and will need to do so before inheriting the asset. It can lead to large bills, which beneficiaries are unable to pay, and result in them walking away from the asset. This tax is not

covered by the Dual Taxation Treaty as it is chargeable to a different entity. This tax is also chargeable in Spain should you choose to gift the property during your lifetime. Our Solution Wincham will invest your Spanish property into your own UK Company (which Wincham can provide) of which you will be the Director and Shareholder and have total control. Using the Hacienda’s (Spanish Tax office) agreed formula to calculate the investment value, there will be no Property Transfer Tax or Capital Gains Tax due in Spain for this transaction. Our

20th September - 26th September 2013

method enables you to utilise Spanish legislation to conveniently own and maintain your property within a corporate structure in the most tax-efficient way. Unlike an offshore company which creates an additional 3% tax burden each year, the UK is not classed as offshore , in line with EU treaties, cannot charge UK Companies the 3% tax. Property Transfer Tax When purchasing a property, you are liable to pay between 7-10% Property Transfer Tax to the regional tax office. And for newly-built properties, you are liable to pay 10% IVA/

VAT plus 1% Regional tax. These taxes are not payable when you invest your own property into your own UK Company. Resident and NonResident Tax Returns Regardless of whether or not you own property in Spain, if you are resident (residing for more than 183 days per year) then you are required to submit a tax return in Spain by the end of June, declaring your worldwide income 2012. If you are a NonResident property owner, then you still need to submit a return or, potentially, face significant fines. As accountants and taxation specialists

with professionals in the UK and Spain, we can provide you with a level of service that enables you to meet all regulatory requirements in both countries. In addition, we can advise you of the best way to structure your assets to minimise taxation and simplify management of your affairs. Title Deeds Insurance Wincham are one of only a few legal advisors able to offer this insurance in Spain. All clients who use our services to purchase or invest a property into a UK limited company are covered by Title Deed Insurance, which affords cover for 20 years - and compensation to a maximum of 360,000 euros, including Demolition Order, Fraud and Compulsory Purchase, plus many more areas. Legal Services Wincham Legal Ltd offer a professional legal service to corporate clients. Services include: community debt recovery, shareholders’ agreements, company forma-

tions, registrations and ready-formed companies for sale, company secretary services and registered office options.

Firemen to strike over their pensions FIREFIGHTERS in England and Wales will stage a four-hour strike next week over pensions.

Some 80% of Fire Brigades Union (FBU) members voted for industrial action in a ballot which ended earlier this month. Union officials left the strike to the last possible moment to allow for the possibility of a nego-

tiated settlement. The they have now given the go-ahead for the stoppage, between noon and 4pm on Wednesday, in what FBU chief Matt Wrack described as a “warning shot to the Government”. He added: “Firefighters could not be more serious about protecting public safety and ensuring fair pensions. “But governments in Westminster and Cardiff have simply refused to see sense on these is-

sues.” The FBU claims thousands of firefighters could be sacked without proper access to their pensions simply because they are getting older. A recent Government review found more than half of current firefighters aged 50-54, and twothirds of those over 55, can no longer meet the required fitness standards. Ministers have previously suggested they could be moved to other

roles, but the FBU says there are only a handful of opportunities, which means that mass sackings are inevitable. Firefighters also already pay some of the highest pension contributions in the UK, with most contributing 13% of their salary every year, with further increases on the way. Fire Minister Brandon Lewis called the decision to strike “entirely unnecessary and avoidable”, and said that all

fire authorities have made “contingency plans”. Lewis added: “After two years of discussions, and with improved terms, the pension on offer to firefighters is one of the most generous public-service pensions available. “A firefighter who earns £29,000 and retires after a full career at 60 will get a £19,000-ayear pension, rising to £26,000 with the state pension.

“To get the same pension from a private scheme, they would have to contribute twice as much.” Firefighters in Scotland will not join in because union officials are still discussing the Scottish Government’s most recent proposals. But as a settlement in Scotland has not yet been found, and the union’s strike ballot could still result in industrial action there as well.

Barlow ready to find that X Factor with new album TAKE THAT front man Gary Barlow is to release his first solo album since 1999.

The X Factor judge revealed the news on Twitter, saying: “After 14 long years, I’m proud to announce my new solo album, out on 25th November! I’m excited for u to hear it! More info to follow #gbsolo.” More details of the album, including the title and track listing will follow in the coming weeks. According to The Sun, the singer has been in the studio with producers Stargate, who have worked with

Page 14

the likes of Rihanna, Beyoncé and Rita Ora. A source told the newspaper: “Gary has

been testing the waters for a solo comeback all year with live dates. “Secretly, he’s been in

the studio with lots of collaborators and flying to the States to work with top pop producers.

The music is not just the ballads people might expect.” Gary’s former band-

mate, Robbie Williams, releases his latest album, Swing Both Ways, on which he duets with Lily Allen, Michael Bublé, Kelly Clarkson, Olly Murs and Rufus Wainwright, a week earlier. The Take That singer is almost certain to sing live on the X Factor to boost sales when the first single from the album is set for release. His last solo LP, Twelve Months, Eleven Days, was released in 1999, while his debut solo record, Open Road, was a No.1 hit in May 1997. As part of Take That, the 42-year old has scored eight No.1 albums, selling over 30 million copies.

Showtime presents The best of Tenerife Comedy Club 2013! WES ZAHARUK, one of the most original comics on the circuit, is also among the funniest, most madcap, physical comedians around.

The Canadian entertains with hilarious and anarchic, physical comedy routines, and definitely has one of the zaniest sets on the market. Mad as a box of badgers, Zaharuk raises the roof with physical, interactive comedy; a riproaring jump into the surreal. He credits his comic roots to his parents. They made “not listening” an Olympic event and dressed him when a child in wool pants that were incredibly itchy. Complain as he would, his words fell on deaf ears. When he developed a skin condition that looked like a large, all-dressed pizza, he was tested for allergies. It was found that he was allergic to wool. Through it all, Wes developed his desire to be heard - if only to reduce the rash. About the use of props in his performance Wes quips: “Show business sometimes lures people who didn’t get enough love early in life. “I feel as a child I didn’t get enough unsupervised time with power tools. But who has perfect parents?” Early in his career, Zaharuk’s fast-paced razor wit and tornado-like approach to comedy caught on quickly. He soon became one of the most-requested comedians at clubs, colleges, and major cor-

porations throughout North America. Wes has performed around the world, and his television experience takes him back to the days of SCTV and Bizarre. He appeared on America’s Funniest People and came second in one episode. Five appearances on Club 54 increased the audiences who have been lucky enough to have seen Wes and his eccentric collection of stupid prop tricks. Now, he is taking his one-man tour de force around the world. How, why & when did you start in comedy?

People have different reasons to go into comedy; I was basically too lazy to work and too afraid to steal. I started when a friend asked me to open up for his band. What was your break/ turning point? When a friend said, “All the things you joke about, why don’t you do them?” So I did. I thought I would never get any work, I was wrong. Favourite place performed? Tenerife Comedy Club (ha-ha, of course, Ed) Did you have an Edinburgh show this year? If so, what was it all about? No, I didn’t have a show this year, but if I’d had one, it would of been about the purpose of life. I really think I dodged a bullet by not going. I really have to give myself a pat on the back. What’s your aim/goal in comedy? To play the Tenerife Comedy Club one more time! Who is/was your comedy hero? This guy named Bill. Describe your style of comedy in 3 words Abused household objects. Tell us a joke that sums up your style Played a monastery last week. After five

minutes, a monk stood up and broke a 20-year vow of silence just to yell: “You suck!” If you knew tomorrow was your last day, how would you spend it? Crying and making funeral arrangements. Who’s your favourite cartoon character, & why? Wiley Coyote, because he is focused and never gives up. When someday he finally catches the Road Runner, you know he is going to be allergic to them. If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Invincibility. It would be fun. I would drive around invincible with no pants on. What’s the strangest thing you have in your house? Bill’s skull. Do you ever dance when there’s no music playing? Who have you been talking to? They’re liars! If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Turnip, because I think I could still be excited every day about having one. What’s your motto in life? Up, Down the important thing in life is that you have a direction.

You can catch Wes Zaharuk at the Best Of The Tenerife Comedy Club on Saturday 21st September alongside Michael Fabbri, Rob Deering and Will Mars, at Showtime, Las Americas. Call 669 622 622 for tickets, or book online at www.showtimetenerife.com Page 18

More women are in prison in America then anywhere else in the world. Following the success of his series, Inside Death Row, Sir Trevor McDonald sets out to visit some of the most dangerous women criminals in the United States. With unique access to The Rockville Correctional Facility and Indiana Women’s Prison, Trevor witnesses a world of seduction and manipulation as inmates prey on each other and those who guard them. Across the two episodes, Trevor speaks to a mother who killed her three-month-old child, a fugitive who was on the run for over 30 years before she was caught and a woman who is in solitary confinement while having to cope with being five months pregnant. He also meets a double murderer whose skill at manipulating people enabled her to break out of prison – she then became America’s Most Wanted Woman. Plus, he speaks to an offender who entered prison as a teenager and has been in jail for 38 years. She will never be released. Trevor also visits a segregation unit where inmates must be locked down for 23 ours a day, shackled and escorted for showers. Many look likes angels, but this belies an often volatile and complex offender population. Read all about episode one on page 34.

The programme also features revealing interviews with her ex-lovers, former co-stars and close friends. Speaking before the interview, Julie said Piers could ask her anything. She said: “Disastrous marriages; psychiatric hospital; when I was given six months to live. He could go anywhere and everywhere.” Talking about her second husband, who left her just an hour after the wedding, Julie said her main worry was for her son. She said: “I was more concerned about Gary. Because the actual reason I married him was because my son was saving up for a dad, and Tony seemed the ideal. It was important to me that Gary had the right dad. “He passed away, God rest his soul. I felt sad, I will not allow bitterness in my life, it’s a wasted emotion.”

The Making Of Merkel BBC2, 20.00

Angela Merkel is arguably the most powerful woman in the world, yet here in Britain we know very little about her. On the eve of the German election, Andrew Marr attempts to unravel the enigma of the German Chancellor. He visits her hometown of Templin and East Berlin to explore how growing up in East Germany influenced Merkel. Here, some of her friends and teachers offer a rare glimpse into the life and character of young Angela – a shy, bright pupil who excelled at languages and who attended parties where opinions were discussed in secret, out of sight and hearing of the secret police. The fall of the Berlin Wall was a turning point for Merkel. Until then, she had pursued a successful career in science and expressed little interest in politics. On the night the Wall fell, she opted to go for a sauna and beer with a friend instead of joining the crowds. However, she was soon motivated to join the growing democracy movement and by the end of 1990, was a member of Germany’s centre right party, the Christian Democratic Union. From here, her career flourished.

The Great British Bake Off BBC2, 20:00

Sweet Dough. It is week six in the tent and time for sweet dough week - but will it prove bittersweet for the bakers? They kick off with a signature tea loaf. Most of the bakers choose to make something connected to home, so Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are presented with everything from locally sourced loaves from Yorkshire and Oxford to Devonshire-inspired panettone and Welsh bara brith. Meanwhile, there is a look at the history of the Sally Lunn, and the story of the torta negra - the well-travelled tea loaf that creates a taste of Wales in the middle of Patagonia. The bakers face Paul's most twisted Technical Challenge yet and a Showstopper that draws on all of Europe for inspiration, creating 36 sweet European buns - from Swedish cinnamon buns to German schnecken and French brioches.

The House That £100k Built BBC2, 20:00

Architectural journalist and critic Kieran Long and award-winning architect Piers Taylor are following self-builders as they take on the biggest gamble of their lives. All have less than £100k to spend, little or no experience and life savings on the line. In this episode, the duo help Sumati Bala try to build a new home after her old house is condemned. Twice widowed, Sumati thought the little cottage in Berwick upon Tweed would be the dream home to live in and run her cookery school from. However rising damp, asbestos and other problems turned it into a nightmare. The building is bulldozed and Sumati has just £50,000 left to start from scratch. Keiran and Piers help her see just what she could achieve with her budget - but this reluctant self-builder may find the challenge overwhelming in the end.

My Tattoo Addiction Channel 4, 22.00 My Tattoo Addiction returns to revisit the colourful and captivating world of tattoos. Delving deep beyond the ink, this 3x60 series will explore more of the unique stories behind every tattoo. All three episodes feature remarkable people, from across Britain whose body art tells a tale about their life. Whether it’s symbolic, spur of the moment or simply just to stand out - behind every tattoo and in some cases its cover up lies a story. Through observational footage and compelling interviews, each challenging and often eye-watering film reveals what drives people to go under the needle, how tattoos can define you and how they come to signify our achievements, experiences and regrets. My Tattoo Addiction returns to revisit the colourful and captivating world of tattoos. Delving deep beyond the ink, this 3x60 series will explore more of the unique stories behind every tattoo design. In the tattoo world you can either stand out, or fit in. In this episode we meet the individuals for whom a tattoo completes them - allows them to feel whole and makes a statement about the person they want to be. We meet Paul, an unemployed father of 6, whose facial tattoos are his pride and joy but are also the barrier to regular work. There is Duncan, whose grief at the loss of a close friend, can only find expression through the ink on his body and we meet James, whose desire to escape from his surroundings, finds expression in his tattoos. There’s also Helen and Amy, whose tattoos are a quest for them to fit into a world that views them as outsiders. Featuring eye watering footage not for the faint of heart, this film takes you into the lives of the people who get tattoos, exploring their motives and experiences whilst asking the question, why are we as a country addicted to tattoos.

Women Behind Bars ITV1, 21.00 Episode One In the first episode Trevor goes inside both prisons, starting with Indiana Women’s Prison, home to almost 700 offenders. He heads to the Segregation Unit to speak to a double murderer who has become the most notorious female offender in the whole state of Indiana. In 2000, Sara Pender was convicted of murdering the two people she lived with. They were shot by her boyfriend, but the prosecution believed that she had manipulated him into doing it. Pender has now been in the Segregation Unit for five years after breaking free from jail. She tells Trevor how, after striking up a sexual relationship with a prison officer, she persuaded him to drive her to freedom in his van. Pender was then on the run for four months and became America’s most wanted female criminal. Sergeant McPherson, who works at Indiana Women’s Prison, tells Trevor about the prison officer who helped her. She says: “He was having problems at home and she preyed on that. She made him feel like she was going to save him; she’d be his everything…he fell in love with her. I’ve seen a lot, been here over 20 years, Sarah’s one of the best manipulators I’ve seen.” Lieutenant Gray adds that before Pender escaped, she was always trying to get an advantage over someone else. He says: “If you asked her a question, she would respond with, ‘What’s in it for me?’ And when people respond like that, it should put you on notice that you have to be careful about how you deal with them. “If you can convince an officer, someone who was trained not to, somebody who was trained to maintain the order and the peace of the facility, if you can convince that person to drive you out of a correctional facility, you can convince anybody to do anything.”

He found out for himself what happens when you cook food in different ways. Now, after years of trial and error, Raymond wants to help us to cook well and become confident in the kitchen. This time he explains frying. For Raymond it is a great quick technique that gives food a wonderful flavour, colour and texture. He starts with a simple French favourite, pan-fried pork chop on saute potatoes, a dish he dedicates to his mum because she has cooked it so often. He conjures up a surprising stir-fried salad as a delicious alternative to the usual summer staple. His dessert is an incredible pan-fried Grand Marnier souffle with an orange sauce.

The chemical happening! THE trend has shifted towards duos and groups, and they now appear on most billboards.

It seems to have evolved quickly on our beloved circuit and there are plenty to choose from - with more arriving here. The Phenomenon boys are doing very well, and this week has seen the return of Storm Duo, who spent the summer touring the UK. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of working alongside Tempo 2000 aka T2K, formed by Corey and Marlo over here in 1998. They have worked extensively across the UK, and have also toured Asia, America and the UAE. Their repertoire is vast and varied, and the harmonics of the two voices together are second to none. Simple things like moving together in unison makes them visually as good to watch as to hear, and T2K tackle some big tunes without fear. I was blown away when they performed

Macklemores’ Can´t Hold Us, a track which requires a whole heap of talent and ability. And to be totally honest, I enjoyed it better than the original. The boys are equally comfortable with many other music genres, covering Reggae, Soul, Pop, Rock, R ’n’ b and Rap. They are current, always on top of new songs fresh to the

UK music scene, and amaze audiences by performing songs which are only just being promoted on the UK’s national radio stations. These guys create a little bit of magic when they are on stage. It’s a chemistry which has been forged through years of friendship and working together – and it is felt from the word go. As soon as they are introduced, Marlow seems to have this natural way of making an audience like him, and whether it be his smile or just the cheeky-

chappy image that comes over, it works. Corey has a similar personality and they both work so well together. When watching them, it is apparent that a lot of work has gone into their show. However, there’s nothing formal because it’s fun all the way with T2K. They encourage dancing whenever the crowd feel the need, and they like to keep things up-tempo. The choice of songs is a changing formula, which means they do not always perform the same show. Corey and Marlow believe it is important to be versatile and be able to change things up just a little bit to suit the audience in front of them. If ever you get to see these guys perform, you will not be disappointed. For me, T2K have set the bar. They deliver so many dynamics within their show, and most of it comes naturally after their years together. Chemistry is something you cannot teach - it just happens. And when T2K “happen”, the atmosphere is electric. I am really looking forward to working with them again - definitely my favourite act right now!

TEAS UPDATE

VOTING is well underway for The Tenerife Entertainment Awards night, and nominees are promoting themselves via social networking sites like Facebook.

Some are taking it very seriously indeed and are pulling out all the stops to try to secure a win. Although the competitive spirit among nominees is commendable, you must remember this is an awards ceremony not an awards competition. However, trying to find that fine line between promoting oneself to gain votes and becoming self-indulgent in your quest is proving difficult for some. But there is no doubt that the TEAs are again creating a huge buzz, and tickets are flying out. Make sure you get yours for the day by calling (0034) 639 101 311. It’s going to be a fabulous day for everyone. Good luck to all nominees.

NOW that the UK children have gone back to school and the price of flights has dropped dramatically, Leonardos is now starting to welcome the stagand-hen parties, and the larger groups out for birthdays and even divorce celebrations.

The bar is staying busier for longer and the younger, fresher approach from DJs Luke and Scotty is proving a success. This is a good time of year for Leonardos and the big party groups tend to drift through a lot of venues. But the past two weeks has seen them stay for the live duos and the after-parties inside the bar when the live entertainment ends. The happy hour, between 23.45pm to 12.45am is still as popular as ever, and Leonardos boast the best drinks’ deals in the south of Tenerife. Owners David and Helen, along with Manager Steve Wynne cordially invite you all down to sample the benefits of the biggest terrace, with top entertainment every night. They also have all football matches on their huge 80in TV, which resides on the Terrace.

By Alex Ashton With the recent announcement of Apple’s new iphone5c and iphone5 mobile devices, it looks as though we could be in for a treat.

The company admits these two models will not be revolutionary (iphone 6 will have that honour). However, they are still built to Apple’s traditionally high standards, and they come bundled with a few new goodies and upgrades. While the 5c is slightly cheaper, both provide ultra-fast performances because of the latest Apple microchips. But the 5s will perform better through the nature of being 64-bit, not to mention more expensive. But will we notice the difference between the two? That is yet to be seen! Camera technology has been upgraded to Apple’s new isight technology in both models. But the more expensive of the two has an additional function called “burst mode”, which allows a user to take up to 10 photos per second continually, much like the rat-a-tattat of a machine-gun. This is quite a step-up

A 5p mandatory charge for singleuse carrier bags will be introduced from Autumn 2015, says Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg. Last year, over seven billion carrier bags were issued by supermarkets in England. Far too many ended up in landfill or scattered around our streets and rivers killing wildlife and costing tax-payers millions of pounds to clean-up. Similar charges in Ireland, Wales and Switzerland have led to an

in camera tech as only the professional SLR (Single Lens Reflex) cameras used by pro photographers do this. It is also time for the latest software to be released to the public. I have already had the opportunity to test this new software as an Apple developer, so the following should give you a better idea of what to expect from it. Software changes The stand-out new features for the userinterface include a more colourful icon/colour scheme. This gives you an immediate impression that you are looking at something very new if you’re a familiar iphone-user. Your apps can now be tapped even while folders open in full-flow animation, making the whole act of launching folder-bound apps much quicker in general. I also noticed a significant speed improvement across the board, which is no more than what I would expect at this point. But at least give them credit for nailing the basics. Something has also changed enough under the hood to make Skype and Google+ apps start working with an added efficiency - they are known as very memoryhungry applications. Past models have been known to slow

right down to the point of freezing the phone, while running in the background. Last is the new fingerprint scanner developed by Apple but, unfortunately, this will be available to iphone 5s buyers only. But I see this, potentially, as becoming more problematical than an advantage! Intech managed to test the beta version of iOS7 only, so we won’t actually know how good the fingerprint-scanner actually is. I’ll let you decide on that. Both models are set to be released in Europe today (Friday). We don’t know much about what deals mobile providers will offer, but the mobiles will definitely be available from any online and high street Apple store. The initial low-down BETA: a software-release programme still being developed and not yet ready for consumer use. iOS: the name of the operating system used for mobile Apple devices, such as the iphone and ipad. SLR: singles lens reflex. This relates to the digital cameras normally used by professional photographers APPS: abbreviation for “applications” and shortened to reference the programmes a user has on a mobile.

Bank on Másmóvil - keep in touch with friends and family SUMMER has ended and most friends and visitors have gone back home.

Or perhaps you decided to seek relief from the soaring temperatures, and return to the UK during the hot summer months. Now you’re back, however, and things are slowly returning to normal, and you do want to keep in touch with everyone, without having to break the bank. So here’s the good news: MÁSMÓVIL continues to beat the “Big Three” by offering the cheapest mobile phone and Internet rates, from as little as four cents a minute for calls to inter-

Bags of money

80 per cent reduction in the number of carrier bags issued. Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, said: Plastic carrier bags blight our towns and countryside. They take hundreds of years to degrade and can kill animals. This is not a new problem. We’ve waited too long for action. That’s why I am drawing a line under the issue now. The charge will be implemented sensibly small businesses will be exempt. We will discuss with retailers how the

money raised should be spent but I call on them to follow the lead of industry in Wales and donate the proceeds to

charity. Environment Minister Lord de Mauley said: We have all seen the effects of discarded plas-

national landlines from Spain and Tenerife! What’s more, MÁSMÓVIL has just launched a new rate plan, the “Tarifa Cero in Pay-As-You-Go mode”, which means you can make domestic calls to mobiles and landlines for 0 cts/minute. And from the sixth minute, you pay just 3 cts/minute. You can enjoy highspeed mobile internet from just 6.90 euros a month for 500 MB, which is renewable automatically to make things easier if you wish. But remember, MÁSMÓVIL doesn’t have any permanence clauses, so you may leave whenever you want.

And when you do decide to go back home, be it for a couple of days, weeks or even months, you simply “park” your mobile number and Internet until you come back, so you’ll avoid expensive roaming charges. There’s really no need for you to stay with the “Big Three” any longer. MÁSMÓVIL has distributors all over Spain (visit WWW.MASMOVIL.ES for one near you) and dedicated English, Spanish, German, Scandinavian and Russianspeaking staff to answer any questions you may have, on toll-free number 1473. Over 150.000 satisfied customers can’t be wrong.

tic bags caught in trees and hedges or ending up in rivers where they harm animals. Introducing a small charge for plastic bags will make people think twice before throwing them away. Year on year, the number of bags issued by retailers has been rising. Without a charge, the problem could escalate out of control and see our environment and animals suffer enormously. There are also plans to incentivise businesses for bringing biodegradable plastic bags to market in England. Provided the bags meet the required criteria, these

could be exempt from a charge. It’s expected that the charging scheme in England will follow the Welsh model in which retailers voluntarily give profits to charity. Small businesses with fewer than 250 employees will be exempt from the charge to ensure that they are not disproportionately burdened by the charges. The government will also incentivise biodegradable bags. A new high standard for these products will be developed with manufactures. Bags which meet that standard will be exempt from the charge.

MY ABC OF COLOURING By Carl from Robot

IT seems possible that a strict regime of exercise, diet and meditation can extend your life span by up to 10%.

WHILE talking to clients in the salon, I find that it all gets a little confusing when it comes to discussing colours, and the way they work.

Some of you tend to think that all colours contain bleach, or that we can remove colours back to your own colour. So here is my A to Z of colouring terms so that you can understand a little more about what is going on in the salon as you sit there getting pampered. 1. A permanent hair tint contains peroxide, which is the colour activator and the colour itself, which will lighten or darken your hair. This deposits colour, or takes it away, and your natural colour will be removed during this process. 2. Bleach also works with peroxide, but removes colour to the desired level only. It is the strongest form of colouring. 3. Semi-permanents will wash out after a few washes, but if it says it’s going to last longer then its PERMANENT! 4. There is no method to return your hair to its natural shade. Hair colour CANNOT be removed – just covered up to something near to your hair colour. 5. Even if you cover up a colour with another one, the first colour is

Page 40

The key to longer life?

still underneath your new colour, until it has grown out. You cannot make a colour vanish. 6. Don’t get confused between ammonia and peroxide. If a colour says “no ammonia”, it still contains peroxide because it cannot work without it. 7. Peroxide is used to give the colour its strength: low if depositing colour and high if its lightening. This is why so many women complain about home hair colours. The box cannot tell how light or dark you are. Hair colouring is a particular skill of

blending the right tones together to create the desired effect, and one colour will not work the same on all hair types. Here at Robot, we try to explain as much as we can about the work being carried out on your hair. It is up to us to keep you informed about what is happening before the process starts - and also during and after. So if you’re sitting in the stylist’s chair and want to know more about what’s going on, just ask! We’d love to share our knowledge with you.

Experts from the University of California team believe they have found the first signs of this phenomenon. But although the results of their research, published in the Lancet Oncology, is intriguing, it is too early to draw any firm conclusions. They studied just 35 men with prostate cancer - and those who changed their lifestyle had demonstrably younger cells in genetic terms. The researchers saw visible cellular changes in the group of 10 men, who switched to a vegetarian diet and stuck to a recommended timetable of exercise and stress-busting meditation and yoga. The changes related to protective caps at the end of our chromosomes, called telomeres. Their role is to safeguard the end of the chromosome and to prevent the loss of genetic information during cell division. As we age and our cells

divide, our telomeres get shorter - their structural integrity weakens, which can tell cells to stop dividing and die. Researchers have been questioning whether this process might be inevitable, or something that could be halted or even reversed. The latest work by Prof Dean Ornish and colleagues suggests telomeres can be lengthened, given the right encouragement. Shorter telomeres have been linked with a broad range of agerelated diseases, and they measured telomere length at the beginning of their study and again after five years. Among the 10 men with low-risk prostate cancer who made comprehensive lifestyle changes, telomere length increased significantly by an average of 10%. In comparison, telomere length decreased by an average of 3% in the remaining 25 men who were not asked to make any lifestyle changes. The study did not set out to check if lifestyle changes and telomere lengthening would improve cancer outcomes, but the researchers say

this is something that should be investigated. Prof Ornish said: “The implications of this relatively small pilot study may go beyond men with prostate cancer. “If validated by largescale, randomised, controlled trials, these comprehensive lifestyle changes may significantly reduce the risk of a wide variety of diseases and premature mortality. “Our genes, and our telomeres, are a predisposition, but they are not necessarily our fate.” Dr Lyn Cox, a biochemistry expert at Oxford University, said it was not possible to draw any conclusions from the research, but added: “Overall, though, the findings of this paper that changes in lifestyle can have a positive effect on markers of ageing support the calls for adoption of, and adherence, to healthier lifestyles.” Dr Tom Vulliamy, senior lecturer in Molecular Biology at Queen Mary University of London, said: “It is really important to highlight that this is a small pilot study. “Also, the significance of the effect of these lifestyle changes on telomere length is actually quite borderline, with only two or three men showing any improvement. “Given this, I’m definitely going to wait to see whether this can be replicated on a larger scale, and with more sizeable effects, before I get excited.” Experts agree that telomere shortening is unlikely to be the sole explanation for human ageing. For example, humans have much shorter telomeres than primates and mice, yet live for far longer. But past work has shown that people who lead a sedentary lifestyle can experience accelerated cellular ageing in the form of more rapid shortening of their telomeres.

Copper bracelets simply can’t ease arthritic pain By Val Sainsbury COPPER and magnetic bracelets worn to help relieve the crippling pain of arthritis are useless, even though some people swear by them.

The healing effect some users report is no different when wearing wrist straps made of any other material, according to the first scientific study into the treatment. These bracelets are said to help a variety of ailments, including the chronic joint pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other musculoskeletal disorders. Manufacturers of the bracelets, which cost £30-£50, suggest these conditions can be alleviated by rebalancing the body’s magnetic field, or topping up depleted copper levels through the skin. However, the research shows they were no better than a non-magnetic wrist strap or one without containing copper. Although previous research has cast doubt on the effectiveness of the bands, the latest trial, by York University, is the first, in-depth, scientific study. It studied the use of copper bracelets and magnetic wrist straps for pain management in rheumatoid arthritis. Dr Stewart Richmond,

a research fellow in the Department of Health Sciences at York, who led the study, said: “Devices such as these provide a placebo effect for users who believe in them. “People normally begin wearing them during a flare-up period, and then, as their symptoms subside naturally over time, they confuse this with a therapeutic effect. “Pain varies greatly over time in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. And the way we perceive pain can be altered significantly by the power of the mind.” Seventy arthritis patients with active symptoms, aged 33-79, each wore four different devices over five months, reporting on their pain and medication use throughout the study, which was published in the science journal Plos One. They also provided blood samples in order to monitor any changes in inflammation levels. Dr Richmond said: “People may be better off saving their money, or spending it on other complementary interventions such as dietary fish oils, for example, which have far better evidence for effectiveness. “Warning people who suspect they have rheumatoid arthritis to consult their GP for treatment, rather than placing faith in such devices, is also important in helping to avoid long-term joint damage,

resulting from uncontrolled inflammation.” His report concluded: “The results of this trial fail to provide any sup-

port for belief in the anti-inflammatory effects of magnetic wrist straps and copper bracelets.”

Alzheimer’s Society right behind £5m therapy trial THE cheap cancer drug Aflibercept could be a vital weapon in the fight against diabetes.

Aflibercept also known as Eylea, is marketed as Eylea or Zaltrap and is a commonly-prescribed drug which blocks the growth of blood vessels into tumours. The drug is currently used to treat metastatic colorectal cancer and a form of macular degeneration - an eye condition. Now, however, studies by US scientists on

mice have identified a previously-unexpected link between a low-oxygen condition called hypoxia and the ability of cells in the liver to respond to insulin. Researchers at Stanford University in California believe they have identified a link between the restoration of oxygen to tissues when blood circulation is inadequate and blood glucose levels. Their findings have led to renewed hope of developing a range of fresh diabetes therapies. Dr Calvin Kuo, who led the research team, said:

“We were surprised to find that this drug, currently used in patients for cancer treatment, had beneficial effects on diabetes in laboratory mice and could, potentially, in humans. “There have been reports that diabetic patients who have been prescribed vascular endothelial growth-factor inhibitors to treat their cancer are better able to control their diabetes.” The study, published in the Nature Medicine journal, found the protein HIF-2alpha, induced by hypoxia (oxygen deficiency),

enhances the ability of cells to respond to insulin. Dr Kuo added: “Much work remains to translate these mouse studies to human patients.” Last week, the Daily Express revealed how British-led research showed how the effects of Alzheimer’s could be reversed by a drug used to fight diabetes. The Lancaster University study of Liraglutide could be a “game-changing” drug. And far from rejecting the notion, the Alzheimer’s Society is now backing a £5million clinical trial.

Delia and Waitrose set to teach the nation to cook In an exciting new move, Waitrose will again be working alongside Delia Smith.

The grocer will bring Delia’s online cookery school, which Delia launched earlier this year on her own website,

Page 42

to Waitrose TV for the first time. The Delia Online Cookery School with Waitrose will offer a library of lessons and techniques videos, completely free of charge for all users. Available now, the content will build over the course of two years and will sit on a new ‘Cook-

ery School’ tab on Waitrose TV as well as on deliaonline.com. Delia’s tutorials will be the hero of the channel, with her section of the site offering 40 close-up lessons and the same number of technique videos. It will be accompanied with content from Waitrose chefs and other food experts to create an extensive food hub, teaching everything from cookery basics to advanced techniques and also supported by more than 150 Delia recipes on Waitrose.com. Waitrose Marketing Director Rupert Thomas: “We have a long and successful history of working with Delia and we’re thrilled to be joining forces again on the Delia Online Cookery School with Waitrose, which we believe will be the definitive online tool for cookery tuition. “Inspiration and expertise are absolutely key to what we offer, and be-

cause of this our online content is now an integral part of our customer communications. “This wealth of new content from Delia will complement the wide range of expertise already on Waitrose TV from contributors including Heston Blumenthal, Alan Titchmarsh and Phillip Scho-

field and will continue to build our online presence as the destination for foodies or anyone looking to develop their skills.” Delia said: “My ambition and my dream is that anyone who wants to learn to cook, can. So I have created an online cookery school to take somebody by the hand

and lead them through it step by step. If you are from nine to 109 you will be able to learn anything from boiling an egg to baking a cake - I don’t think you can learn in a better way. “I personally contacted secondary schools across the country to ask about the basics of home cooking. 90% of pupils said that they would like to be able to learn how to cook.” The comprehensive library will also enable Waitrose to link to tutorials from across the Waitrose website and social media channels for example a quick skill lesson within a recipe on Waitrose.com. As well as Waitrose TV, content will also be available on the Waitrose YouTube channel ( y o u t u b e . c o m / Wa i t rose), Pinterest (pinterest.com/waitrose) and through the retailer’s Facebook page (Facebook.com/Waitrose).

Big Macs are on offer in La Palma

THE Canaries welcomes its 31st McDonald’s restaurant today (Friday) when the global franchise chain opens in La Palma’s capital, Santa Cruz.

It will prove to be a boost for the city, jobs-wise, because a 35-strong team has been recruited locally to staff the popular eaterie.

Ramon Fariña, the new franchisee: said: “It is an honour for me to contribute to the creation of jobs here. “This is the ninth McDonald’s restaurant I manage, along with the others in Tenerife. Together, they form a template of around 450 people - professionals specially trained by the company to provide the best service for customers.” The restaurant is part of the company’s threeyear expansion plan in

20th September - 26th September 2013

Spain, which began last year and ends in 2014. Its target is to open more than 60 new restaurants, investing about 160 million euros and generating more than 3,000 jobs in total. This commitment is part of the McDonald’s Strategy Entrepreneurship and Youth Employment, supported by Spain’s Ministry of Employment. It involves taking on young people and encouraging entrepreneurship, and McDonald’s (Spain) is the first catering company to adopt this initiative. The new restaurant, housed in a chalet-style building in La Palma Marina, seats 160 people indoors and a further 85 customers on the large outdoor terrace. It also features free WiFi access and even a Ronald Gym Club - a play area designed to provide a wide range of adventure sports and recreational activities.

Heinz right in the soup! WHEN it comes to tinned soup, Heinz invariably springs to mind. But try telling that to Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Aldi.

Own-brand tomato soups from the supermarket trio pushed the Heinz Classic Cream of Tomato back into fourth place in the latest Which? test. Which? trialled 11 supermarket and branded cream-of-tomato canned soups in a blind taste test, which involved 100 members of the public. Cream of Tomato (76%), Tesco Cream of Tomato (74%) and Aldi Soupreme Cream of Tomato (72%) were voted tastiest and are rated Best Buys by the product comparison guide. All the supermarket

Best Buys are cheaper than branded varieties, and Aldi’s soup costs less than half the price of a can from Heinz, the nation’s favourite soup brand. Each soup on test was rated on its taste, texture, appearance and aroma. Heinz Classic and Waitrose both scored 67%, while Baxters scored 61%. Soups from Campbell’s Condensed and M&S came joint-last with 55%. Which? also tested soups from The Co-op, Morrisons and Adsa. The Best Buys from Sainsbury’s and Tesco cost 65p per can, against Heinz (89p), Baxters (95p) and Campbell’s (95p). And at just 42p, Aldi’s Best Buy Soupreme Cream of Tomato Soup is one of the cheapest you’ll find.

Tomato soup nutrition Baxter’s was the saltiest soup, containing 0.7g of salt per 100g, while the Co-op’s was the least salty, with 0.4g of salt per 100g. Nutritionist and Which? food expert Shefalee Loth said: “A tablespoon of tomato purée, one medium, fresh tomato or two tinned plum tomatoes all count towards one of the recommended five daily portions of fruit and vegetables. “Most tomato soups contain at least one of these ingredients and will count towards one of your five a day.” As well as the soup, there are plenty of other top-tasting food and drink samples, including everything from store-cupboard staples to champagne, in the latest Which? taste-test winners’ gallery.

At last… a ray of light for all disabled visitors

Andrew Herron-Adams last week spelled out some of the ups and downs of being wheelchair-bound while holidaying in June on his favourite Island. Today, he is back in Tenerife for the month, and he hears one spark of good news. SO here we are back in our Tenerife, Staying at a hotel for a change, and, although we are self-catering, almost everyone else here is either all-inclusive or a member of the world water-skiing competition which seems to dominate Tenerife at this time. We don’t mind, and it has helped us to get to know the staff, who have been excellent, making us feel part of their “family”. Even the director and subdirector of the hotel have made a point of meeting us personally. Out and about, all appears to be pretty similar to the time we were here in June - well what does change in Tenerife in a few weeks? But as we have made our way around, we have noticed that some of the discussions we had with business owners is starting to have an effect. We “accidently” had a street chat with a lady who runs a bar on the terraces above La Pinta beach, and, while she did not have any disabled toilets, she was frustrated that when the locals/bars were built, there had been no thought of providing the space for such facilities. And it would have required a huge outlay to close down all the bars to have the internal lay-outs re-built, However, she went on to suggest that the council could, perhaps, make use of some empty units by turning one in each area into a disabled facility with maybe each bar having a key to access the facility. What a great idea, I think it says a lot about how people really are concerned in

Page 44

helping each other but actually, it would not be necessary for the bars to control keys. That’s because a key service for disabled persons already exists. It’s called RADAR and it works because all the disabled toilets have the same locking mechanism. And each disabled person is given, or buys, a key for the lock. I have one and I take it everywhere as it works all over Europe, wherever disabled facilities are made available. So thank-you that kind lady I hope you recognise yourself in this article - it was really nice to have met you. As we were drifting around the port looking at all the boats we can’t afford, we met a large group of people with special needs. The obvious leader was

looking a bit harassed or frustrated and it was obvious she was looking for some help. We discovered they were desperate to find a restaurant which had disabled facilities so they could all enjoy a meal break. Sarah, the leader, was telling me how all the bars get you in by moving all the tables etc, but only after the people are in do they actually admit that they do not have special toilets - just normal ones. And then they would not understand how “normal” toilets are of no use to many people. Shame on them. But we were pleased to point them 100 metres along the bay to the only establishment with suitable facilities. El Ferry’s the place and Jean, who is always pleased to oblige,

readily changed her restaurant around to accommodate the group. We stayed and had a drink with the group, and were honoured to get their permission for a group photo to send into the Canarian Weekly, I also asked Sarah a bit about how they organised such a large number of people. It turned out that Sarah, plus five others, who are all UNPAID VOLENTEERS, take a group of seven clients, all from the Pinner area in Middlesex, on an annual vacation which would otherwise not be possible for the clients (there has got to be a better word than clients). The group are staying in the Noelia Sur Hotel with which we are also familiar. Sarah went on to say that they had sent an email to the hotel in advance to ensure appropriate rooms were made available for each member of the group. In the face of a huge commitment from all of the carers, the group have enjoyed a trip to Monkey World, which was a huge success for all. The shogun boat trip was also a huge favourite, and that must have taken some work with six wheelchairs, boats, water etc. And they are planning a

trip to Loro Park, which is a place we both love, and we know it will be a fantastic experience for all of them. Obviously, transport has been a feature of many plans, and Sarah has found orange bus service to be invaluable. I take my hat off to Sarah and her team of volunteer helpers; they remind me how proud and grateful I am of the work my wife, Izabela, dedicates to my daily existence. In last week’s account, I mentioned the Winchester Bar, on the Fanabe beach, as the only bar with a ramp for access into the bar/ restaurant itself, plus full disabled facilities except for a discount on the price of beer! Well, when popping in for a meal the other day, Ryan told me that after we had spoken to them on our visit in June, they decided to revamp the signage all along the front of the business. It was to highlight the special facilities, which we consider to be a great success on our first few steps in a long journey to encourage all businesses, planners, investors, etc, to pause and consider the needs of all. In the end, with a growing population, it is not just victims of accidents and illness who require these facilities, and it will be the forward-thinking, progressive business people who will reap the rewards. We, of course, already tell everyone we see who

may need some help of all the places we know, and we often see these people in those bars and eateries. So to celebrate the success of new signage for the disabled at the Winchester, we had a glass of champagne to toast the staff for their input, and to thank them all for helping to put the message out there. I do know that Ryan has been instrumental in the changes, but they are a team and so we thank them all. The team members are Mel, Emma, Leigh, Kat, Laura, Rocky (*), Ryan, Dean, Sean, Steve, Barry, and lastly Bonny. When we return to the UK, we still have to endure the long flight without access to the loo because JET2 will not provide an aisle wheelchair, or even allow me to purchase one on their behalf for my own use, I have written to Steve Heapy, the Chief Executive. As yet he has not replied. But guess what? We are not giving up! And one day, JET2 will have proper facilities on board, as almost all their competitors already do. Happy holidays to everyone, and a big thank-you to all the people who make ours so special. Thanks also to the Canarian Weekly Editor for letting me have a go at writing an article - it’s my first. And most of all, thanks to my wife and my love, Izabela x

Cheap in the long run By Jav AUDI’S new plugin petrol version of their Audi offers a sensational 188mpg - and a happy driving experience.

But the company’s A3 e-tron costs £32,700. That’s some £9,000 more than the equivalent 2.0-litre TDI, but think of the fuel savings! The A3 e-tron is a plug-in model of the A3 Sportback, which is powered by a 148bhp 1.4 litre TSI engine and a 99bhp electric motor. These are sandwiched between the gearbox and power unit to drive the front wheels, and the motor also doubles as the engine’s starter. A six-speed DSG gearbox harnesses the power, and its wide ratio spread enables the electric motor to operate through a narrower, 0-2000rpm rev range, which allows for a more efficient design. The adapted DSG transmission includes an additional clutch

that decouples the motors to let the car coast, which is a more efficient use of kinetic energy than recuperation. The e-tron’s battery lives under the rear seat, while the repositioned fuel tank sits beneath a slightly-raised boot floor. Despite the tank’s proximity to the A3’s back end, this model

can absorb a 50mph rear impact without the plastic tank rupturing, which will come as a relief to drivers. At the other end of the car, the power socket for the charging cable is hidden neatly behind the four rings of its grille. Despite its low-emission, fuel-saving hardware, the e-tron has the scope to achieve that

spectacular 188.3mpg, besides sprinting to 62mph in 7.6sec and topping 138mph. The machine will also travel at up to 80mph on electric power alone, although its 31-mile range will obviously be compromised by these high EV speeds. But those 31 miles are enough to allow most commuting trips to be completed with-

Motor sector is back on the up Carlos Ghosn, who runs the Renault -Nissan company, believes the European car market has stopped declining and is poised for a period of light growth.

He shared his feelings last week at the Frankfurt Motor Show, where Renault were displaying a new concept car and, with Dacia, their all-new Duster model (above). The original, lowprice Duster, despite much criticism, has proved to be their bestselling global model. But Ghosn was keen to discuss the prediction from market analysts. It was backed by his company experts’

out resorting to the petrol engine, and this practice is encouraged by the automatic defaulting to EV mode on start-up. Its DSG transmission provides the same features as those in a conventional car, including a manual paddle-shift mode. The exterior looks pretty much the same as well, apart from the

own analysis of the car market after some tough years throughout Europe. They spelled out that all three indicators of growth were in line: a buoyant used-car market, a rise in used-car prices and a growing new-car market. “There are many indicators, all of them signalling the end of a period of decline,” said Ghosn.

20th September - 26th September 2013

“We have entered the third phase of recovery, where we are seeing newcar sales rise again. “We expect to stay there, growing slightly at 1-2% a year, for the next couple of years.” The European car market fell a further 7% in the first six months of this year, but is expected to bounce back to end 2013 down 5%. And, says Ghosn, the fig-

ures will rise from next year. “The worst is over,” he added. “We are pretty confident the European slope has stopped going down, but we know it won’t rise significantly until consumer confidence is back. “And until the European governments show they will support growth rather than fight deficits, that situation is likely to remain.”

low-rolling resistance tyres, and the e-tron’s as quiet as any other electric car on take-off. The familiar sensation of power being parcelled through a multi-speed transmission is a small price to pay for the efficiency advantage of having an electric motor, geared through six forward speeds. All in all, it is the best-balanced, sweetest-handling A3 in the range, which makes for a satisfying steer, and a good ride. Recharge times vary, but you’re looking at nearly four hours using a 230-volt 10-amp supply, which reduces to 2hrs 15mins with 16amp power. This Audi model is fascinating, with the potential to be extremely cheap to run, especially given its ultra-low, emissions. It also offers an entertainingly strong performance and well-balanced handling to go with it. Come next summer, when it hits the showrooms, any niggling details will have been ironed out. And remember, you’ll have the convenience of a 550-mile range using both on-board energy supplies.

The troubled Swedish car-maker are increasing production in the next few weeks to clear the backlog of 6,500 orders - and their supply chain will also be fully re-established. Their parent firm Spyker, soon to be renamed Swedish Automobile, have had fresh investment from Chinese company Pang Da, who have freed-up cash-flow to resume day-to-day operations. The Trollhättan or-

ders include 1,300 cars ordered by Pang Da for sale in China, for which they paid 30 million euro (£26m). The firm also have 1,600 orders for their new 9-4X crossover, to be built in North America. Relieved Saab chairman Victor Muller said: “This is a great day for our company, and it is great to see the plant running again, “We have gone through a rough patch in recent weeks, but Saab are back in action, thanks to our fantastic suppliers and our loyal employees, who have constantly stood by our side.” The first cars off the production line were an orange 9-3 cabriolet and a silver 9-5 Aero.

Real Zaragoza 3 CD Tenerife 0 TOWARDS the front of Canarian Weekly you will find the Tenerife Tweets. They are a little tongue in cheeky and rather popular.

I could have filled the whole of the four sports pages here with negative tweets since Tenerife’s disappointing defeat in Zaragoza on Saturday. There is no point in suger-coating what was another poor performance. But I don’t think we should dwell on the match. For me, the game was more about Zaragoza than Tenerife. They have had a poor start after relegation from La Liga, and they went into the match knowing that a defeat or a goalless draw was not acceptable. They dug in, produced and now their fans are dreaming of a promotion run. Real were excellent. They were everything they hadn’t been so far Position 1º Real Sporting

The Chicken Littles are tweeting again!

this season - and I’ve watched a few of their games now. So for me, it’s a case of giving credit to them rather than slating Tenerife. There were two leagues separating the sides a few months ago, and CDT are a work in progress. Some players are finding their feet and the whole side need to gel. And the fans need to calm down. The Chicken Littles are already in a flap. “Sack the Manager!” Well, we did that last time we were in this league. Arconada lasted five matches and we went down. So let’s learn from our mistakes. “We need a striker.” Maybe. But the transfer window is closed. “There is no fight” Rubbish. They worked like Trojans in Alcorcon on the opening day and showed bottle to come back against Barca B. “The players are not performing because they are owed money from last season.” Utter tosh. Speak to any pro footballer. When he is playing the very last thing he thinks of is his bank balance. Fans are just that. Points 11

Fans. They are not in the boardroom, in the training ground, on the bus or plane. In the dressing room. They’ve never got close to understanding how professional football works. Last week, “fans” of Mallorca were calling for Jose Luis Oltra to be sacked after they lost all three of their league games and lost

in the cup. But Oltra’s fine record speaks for itself. What happens? Mallorca beat the league leaders and are then denied an excellent away win by a clueless ref. Watch them fly up the table. Every Stoke fan was up in arms when Mark Hughes was appointed. “We’re doomed,” was the cry. What happens? Stoke play eye-catching football, are unlucky to lose at Anfield, should have beaten Man City, win comfortably at home to Palace and batter West Ham at Upton Park. Still fresh in the mind is the “Wenger Out” cries, ditto Alan Pardew and Nigel Pearson, who, at time of writing, is top of the Championship with Leicester. So, keeping faith with Alvaro Cervera makes sense. Tenerife fans with short memories will have forgotten that Oltra was “nearly” fired in the October of Tenerife’s glorious La Liga promotion season. Cervera is a Tenerife man and he has hardly done anything wrong, has he? This Friday is his 48th birthday and he celebrates by taking charge of Tenerife for the 50th time. In this week’s press conference

he spoke about how much he was enjoying the job, saying: “Tenerife has been very good for me and I hope I have been good for them. It’s where I want to be and I think we will get the job done. This is the first time I have ever started a complete second season at one club, and I hope that continues.” The Lugo match tomorrow (Saturday), kick-off 5pm, completes his half-century: “It’s a nice milestone, and not many Tenerife managers have got to this mark recently,” he said. He’s right, of course! Cervera will be hoping to mark the event with a win - and the stats are on his side. He won his 10th league match 1-0 at home to Real Aviles and his 20th 1-0 at home to CD Marino. The 30th saw another win against Real Aviles, and match 40? Yep a 3-1 win over L’Hospitalet! So the omens are there for tomorow, and he is in bullish mood: “I don’t understand where the criticism comes from,” he said. “If it’s the matches, then we are competing; if it’s the points, then we will get it right. I was angry after last match. Of course, we all are.

But this is a higher standard and I have been surprised with what we have done. We have been very competitive and that has pleased me. There have been injuries, but we will cope.” His boss, Quique Medina, spoke warmly of Cervera on Tuesday: “We have our feet on the ground as we are a new team in this category and we know what the challenges are,” he said. “We’ve had injuries, but I’m convinced that the victories will come. Cervera is a hardworking boss and will get the job done. “I’m certain there will be at least four teams below us when the season finishes.” They don’t do dreaded “votes of confidence” in Spain. Medina and Cervera are good friends and they seem to be on the same song sheet. In many ways, the campaign starts here with the Lugo match and Real Madrid Castilla a week on Sunday. Four points would be perfectly acceptable, and six would be amazing. There is a long, long way to go and what looked like a decent side in pre-season, still look like a decent side after FIVE matches.

The Pub’s skipper, Grizzly, also hit a 180 on the way to an 8-0 thumping of Scruffy Macs, while La Caña Pirates visited Target Army, and Elvis Dave fired in a maximum for the Abrigos team. But that was all they had to show for their efforts as the Target boys put in a superb performance to take all eight points. Palms Sports Bar

lost ground in second spot as they were held to a draw at home by Ourplace Naturals, while Phoenix Bar enjoyed a fun evening with the ever-playful Playboys. The 7-1 home win was just an aside to a night of larks for Harry and Fluff as they rolled back the years, drinking vodka with pineapple chunks. Later in the evening, they were ordering vodka and chine-apple punks! Gaffers B chalked up

another win in their pursuit of the Division 1 title. A 6-2 result at home to Bar 180 B was their fourth win on the bounce. Chipeque beat Bar 180 C and leapfrogged them into fourth spot, while Emerald Lounge remain third after a 5-3 success at home to Marilyns. Naughty Nautas took the last leg for a draw at Summerland, and Trap Door did likewise to square the match with Barracuda Bytes.

Tenerife Sun now hold a comfortable 13-point lead at the top of Division 2. A 7-1 victory at Amistad 2 means they have now won 12 of their 14 matches. Local rivals Emerald Shamrocks and Bar 180 D, who are having a ding-dong battle for the runners-up spot, both recorded 7-1 wins. The Shamrocks dropped just one point at the Playgirls, while Bar 180 D matched that at Barracuda Hunters. Picassos won the

trebles leg and the match with Sundowners, and an in-house derby at Pas O Nadas saw them lose the trebles and slump to defeat at the hands of The Rebels. It seems as though not a week goes past without a Los Abrigos derby, and this time the bragging rights belong to Phoenix Flights. They came back from a 3-0 deficit and won the next five rubbers for a hard-fought win at La Caña Lancers.

Ali conqueror Norton dies at 70 KEN NORTON, one of just five fighters to beat Muhammad Ali after breaking his jaw - has died at the age of 70.

Norton, who had suffered a series of strokes, died at a care home in Las Vegas. The former US heavyweight champion proved to be the most awkward of opponents for Ali, who, having lost that battle on a split decision in 1973, avenged the defeat six months later, then won

the 15-round decider in 1976 with a controversial points verdict to retain his world title. The following year, after winning a final eliminator against Jimmy Young, Norton was awarded the WBC world title by default after new champ Leon Spinks stepped aside in favour of an instant return with Ali. But Larry Holmes put paid to any further Norton ambitions in a classic 15-round showdown in 1978.. Gene Kilroy, Ali’s former business manager,

said: “I’m sure he’s in heaven now with all the great fighters - I’d like to hear that conversation.” Norton began boxing while in the US Marines, and turned professional shortly after leaving the service in 1967. When his career ended, Norton appeared in several films and also became a fight commentator. He had five children, one of whom went on to play professional football and now coaches in the National Football League for Seattle Seahawks.

Paul averts bad Dream

THE defending champions still lead Division One of the Direct Telecom Pool League, but Tenerife Hammers A were given an almighty scare for the second week running.

For last week’s match with Palms A, read Dreamers and, again, the Hammers had a slice of luck. They didn’t look like needing any fortune when they raced into a 5-0 lead. Dreamers have been this slowest of starters since the Hare bolted into the lead with the Tortoise. On numerous occasions they have been 3 or 4 down but again, they got themselves into the match. Tommy, Ket and Steve won consecutive rubbers to bring it back to 5-3, only for Wez to reassert for the Hammers. But 6-3 became 6-4 when Tommy chinned Jambo. Steve kept the ball rolling to set up a decider, which Ket looked to have sewn up. But he missed an easy black to claim a

draw and Paul played smart to grind out the win, and three massive points. Bar La Caña A are matching the leaders stride for stride, proving too strong for the Terrace A lads. We will know more about them in a few weeks as they have a tough run of fixtures coming up. Gaffers A made short work of Toscales in Valle San Lorenzo (11-1), while new boy Daniel notched a hattrick as he inspired Inn The Pink A to a stunning 10-2 win at Exiles A. Phoenix Knights made no mi-STEAK as they beat Palms A in a fine match. The hosts were 3-0 up, but Palms got it back to 3-3 and should have gone ahead when JT had a shot on the black. The middle pocket was gapping like a wizard’s sleeve, but JT missed and Knights took the frame and the following four to march home. Treehouse A are loving life in the top flight. Struggling Tenerife Hammers C were their latest victims, and Peg Leg Greg even won a couple of frames! It was honours even in Puerto Colon

There are still five teams unbeaten in Division Two in what is shaping up to be a real bun fight. Palms B lead the way after a routine 8-4 Torviscas derby win over Picasso’s A. but Inn The Pink are right on their shoulder. They beat Next Door 9-3 in a match that was far tighter than the scoreline suggests. Next Door would

have surely picked up something from the Patch if they hadn’t potted the black at the wrong time! In fact, they managed the bizarre feat THREE TIMES! Ouch! 2JZ’s made short work of the girls from Cozy Corner B (11-1), and Bluebell B did the same to Cozy A (102). In central LA there were a couple of decent matches as, firstly, James Place kept their run going at Gaffers B, getting over the line 8-4. It was a little tighter a couple of locals down as

Just jigging about for a grand catch AN angling championship called “jigging” will be organised by San Miguel Marina and launched from there over the weekend.

This innovative sport will be the first held in the Canaries and takes place tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, involving some 20 boats

Page 54

and kayaks. Jigging, or vertical fishing, has become a global phenomenon in recent years and is characterised by the use of lures (artificial baits), leading from the vessels and left to freefall to the bottom of the sea. The fishing zone for competitors will be defined between the Punta Rasca lighthouse and the Granadilla coast. The Championship is

divided into two parts, the first being tomor-

row’s catch-and-release competition, in which

all fish caught will be photographed, weighed

and measured before being returned to the sea. Sunday will herald the “fast fishing” event, in which contestants can retain the amount of fish they catch - disregarding the unauthorised species. At the close, all catches will be donated to various social organisations for the poor in the municipalities of San Miguel and Granadilla de Abona.
