WINTER FUEL HAND OUTS UP IN SMOKE! MORE than 120,000 Expat pensioners - including those living in Tenerife - will almost certainly lose their winter fuel payments within two years.

It will come as a serious blow to some OAPs following Chancellor George Osborne’s plans for a “temperature test”, which he revealed on Wednesday. But it won’t even be an inconvenience to people who enjoy healthy company pensions anyway. As part of his 11.5bn package of Government spending cuts on Wednesday, Mr Osborne unveiled proposals to restrict elderly Britons living in warmer countries from claiming the benefit, which is worth £200-300 a year. There has already been much controversy their free TV licences, bus passes and winter

fuel payments, with half the Cabinet arguing that they should be limited if further squeezes on working-age welfare are to be justified. David Cameron pledged at the last General Election that the fuel payments would be protected until 2015, leading to months of wrangling over whether Expats should also keep their benefits. But the Chancellor confirmed that there would be a crackdown on the so-called “sunshine benefits” after the next election. Almost £2m goes abroad every week to claimants who qualify for welfare, despite leaving the UK. Pensioners living in European countries, who can currently claim a range of benefits, will lose winter fuel payments if their region has a higher average winter temperature than the warmest region of the UK. And that definitely rules out Tenerife,

much to the dismay of our poorer pensioners, and those who enjoyed that feeling of getting a nice little earner before Christmas. This system would save £30m a year after 2015-16, when it is expected to come into force. Controversially, those wealthier pensioners who have emigrated to colder countries will continue to receive the

payments, while poorer old folk, existing on Government pensions only, will lose out if they live in warmer areas. Traditionally, people have been eligible for the winter fuel payment only if they were living in Britain at the age of 60 and then moved abroad. But thanks to a ruling by the European Court of Justice, the UK could be forced to pay out to all 444,000 British pen-

sioners living abroad, at a cost of up to £100m a year. The court insisted that all elderly Expats should be able to get the fuel payment, no matter what age they were when they left Britain. And there has been a 13-fold rise in the number of Expats claiming the benefit in the last decade. The latest figures show that 33,815 pensioners living in Spain receive the payment, worth £200 for the over-60s and £300 for those over 80. This costs taxpayers £5.8million a year, even though temperatures in Spain can drop as low as 63F (17C) in winter months. But if you live in Tenerife, which is renowned for its all-year-round sunshine, despite several hiccups this winter, then you can definitely wave goodbye to the cash. A Government source said: “The bill is going to go up further, and

that isn’t sustainable. “To keep the cost under control, we are being forced to change the rules and introduce a temperature test. It can’t be right that a payment meant to help people through cold winters is going to those living in the Mediterranean.” Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith are among those in the Cabinet who have been pressing for a rethink on universal pensioner benefits. Mr Duncan Smith has said: “The winter fuel payment is about helping British pensioners with heating costs, and it is ludicrous that we could have to pay more pensioners living in hot countries.” Around 12million people in the UK receive the annual payment, but critics believe it should be limited to poorer pensioners who need help with fuel bills.

Mandela: the world waits…

N E L S O N MANDELA, one of the greatest statesmen of th the 20 Century, was defying all medical science last night as the world prayed for him. The 94-year-old former South African President, who has fought doggedly to beat a lung infection for the past three weeks, was said to be “critical” as we went to press. The world watched, waited and prayed as his condition worsened over the past 48 hours, amid claims that he was on a life-support machine. South African President Jacob Zuma cancelled a trip to Mozambique, and Mandela’s daughter,

Makaziwe, said: “I won’t lie - it doesn’t look good. But if we speak to him, he responds and tries to open his eyes.” She added: “He’s still there. He might be waning off, but he’s still there and anything is imminent.” Zuma visited Mandela (also known as Madiba) on Wednesday in the Pretoria hospital where the anti-apartheid leader is being treated and said he “found him to be still in a critical condition”. And yesterday (Thursday), a family member described Mandela’s condition as “stable”. The family also collected flowers, left outside the hospital by supporters and wellwishers. P r e s i d e n t i a l spokesperson Mac Maharaj said: “Over the past 48 hours, the condition of former

28th June - 4th July 2013

president Madiba has gone down.” US President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit South Africa at the weekend as part of a three-nation Africa tour, which he has already started in Senegal. Obama, who has always admired the great campaigner, said Mandela was a hero for the world and that his legacy would linger through the ages. Obama said during a press conference in Dakar with Senegalese President Macky Sall: “He has been an inspiration to me and he is my personal hero.”

The US President is scheduled to travel to South Africa today (Friday), but Maharaj said it was too early to say whether Obama’s schedule in Johannesburg and Cape Town, on Saturday and Sunday, might be affected by Mandela’s worsening condition. The former political activist turned prisoner turned president is suffering from the infirmities of age and the lung condition he contracted in prison, which weakened his system. Meanwhile, South Africans continue

to pay tribute to the anti-apartheid icon, leaving flowers and cards outside the hospital and his home in Johannesburg. On Wednesday, children from a daycare centre laid a handmade card outside the hospital and paused to recite a Zulu poem, which included the line, “Hold on, old man”. Politicians, celebrities and world leaders have also reached out to express admiration and concern for Mandela, who has long been revered for his message of hope and forgiveness, despite 27 years of imprisonment by South Africa’s apartheid government. He was elected as South Africa’s first black president in 1994 as the country ushered in a new era of democracy. In the Eastern Cape province, where a young

Mandela grew up, tribal leader Phathekile Holomisa has spoken to Mandela’s family members. “I am of the view that if Madiba is no longer enjoying life, and is on life support systems, and is not appreciating what is happening around him, the good Lord should take the decision to put him out of his suffering,” said Holomisa. The Anglican archbishop of Cape Town, Thabo Makgoba, visited Mandela in hospital on Tuesday and said a prayer for a “peaceful, perfect end” for the former president. Makgoba told Associated Press: “We just want him to be peacefully released, whatever he’s feeling at this moment, and to be reunited with his Maker at the perfect time, when God so wills.”

News In Brief Once Upon A Time still works for kids FAIRY TALES are just as popular with children

today as they were when their mums and dads were kids, as an online survey of 1,001 parents reveals that children’s reading tastes are still as traditional. Seven in 10 parents told an online survey said they tell fairy stories to their children in the belief that they develop reading skills as well as being fun. Cinderella was their daughters’ favourite character, according to 44%, followed by Goldilocks, Puss in Boots and Little Red Riding Hood. Jack and the Beanstalk won 24% of the votes for boys, followed by Puss in Boots, and the Gingerbread Men. The survey was commissioned to mark the beginning of this week’s National Bookstart Week.

Run for fun and charity

THE second annual 8.5km Adidas Fun Run takes place on Sunday, from 9am, in Playa de Las Americas. It will start and finish outside the Gala shopping centre in central Las Americas. Runners of all ages are taking part, but not necessarily over the full distance, and all proceeds will go to the SOS Children’s villages. The event is being sponsored by Baobab Sports and everyone taking part will receive various goodies, including Adidas Climacool shirts and vouchers for local restaurants. The first three in the two senior categories will receive prize-money of 150, 100 and 50 euros respectively, and there are medals for the first five finishers.

Easyjet bag guarantee

MANAGING cabin baggage is an industrywide challenge and, at easyJet, overhead locker space is at a premium because of the volume of passengers. It means that on busy flights, staff are not always able to fit everyone’s bag in the cabin. But from Tuesday, the budget airline is introducing a firm guarantee. So for passengers who bring a bag no bigger than 50cm x 40cm x 20cm (including handles and wheels), easyJet will guarantee it can travel in the cabin - either in the overhead locker or under the seat in front of them.

Spain in tune with tourism

SPAIN has updated its official tourism website in response to today’s needs for digital info. It has also incorporated ways to commercialise the sector. According to recent data, 60% of all inbound tourists who visited Spain in 2012 consulted information on the Internet while organising their trip, 59% booked services in advance and 56% paid over the Internet.

Armstrong dope scandal spreads over to Tenerife L A N C E ARMSTRONG was almost certainly taking drugs in Tenerife on his way to seven Tour de France titles.

The disgraced American has now been stripped of the titles, and Spain’s judiciary is investigating a support network which, allegedly, helped the disgraced cyclist with doping when he trained in the country and over here, from 1999 to 2005. With this year’s Tour de France starting next Saturday (29th June), it takes the gloss of the training sessions conducted by the likes of favourite Chris Froome and his Team Sky colleagues in Puerto de la Cruz this winter. It is where Bradley Wiggins completed his tough mountain workouts in readiness for last year’s Tour, which he won from Froome and, together with his Olympic success, earned himself a knighthood. Now, though, the head of the nation’s anti-doping agency has revealed that she received a request for

THE diplomatic row between Britain and Spain over Gibraltar became more undiplomatic this week.

Spanish police entered British waters for the second time, just days after reportedly firing shots at a British jetskier. A furious Foreign Office protested to the Spanish Government after a Guardia Civil boat entered Gibraltan waters and took potshots at 32-year-old British delivery driver Dale Villa as he tested his new jet-ski close to a popular beach. Three days later, a police boat was seen in British waters again, in what locals described as a rebuke to the Foreign

help in May 2012 from the US Anti-Doping Agency, which was then trying to discover whether Armstrong and his entourage had been involved in doping. Ana Munoz, head of Spain’s Sports Health Protection Agency, said that her group began to compile information about Armstrong while he was training in Spain and in Tenerife. She admitted that testimony and other evidence were gathered as part of the inquiry, which she then presented to Spain’s state prosecutor. Munoz said the evidence was being used by a Spanish court to investigate Armstrong, and those who may

have helped him win those seven Tour de France titles. Apart from the American rider and his mentor, Johan Bruyneel, two Spanish doctors were also under investigation, she added. Bruyneel was then identified by USADA and his ex-team-mates as one of the organisers of systematic doping on the squads riding for the US Postal Service and Discovery Channel. Munoz said that doctors Luis Garcia del Moral and Pedro Celaya were being investigated on suspicion that they helped Armstrong use banned drugs while training in the Spanish regions.

She added that Spain’s image had been tarnished by Armstrong’s admission that he took drugs while training in the country and, by what she called, a lenient sentence handed down in the Operation Puerto trial. That case ended with the Spanish doctor at the centre of a blood-doping ring, Eufemiano Fuentes, being convicted of endangering the health of cyclists under his medical care, and receiving a one-year suspended jail sentence. Munoz repeated that her agency was appealing against the trial judge’s decision to destroy blood bags part of the evidence in the Operation Puerto trial involving Fuentes. “I want it clearly understood that my agency wants to know the names of all of those involved in blooddoping in that case,” Munoz told Associated Press. Spain passed a new anti-doping law on 13th June which, officials hope, will clean up the country’s damaged image following the Puerto case, and will help boost Madrid’s bid for the 2020 Olympics.

Potshots at jet-skier triggers new row with UK and Spain Office protest. Gibraltan news website Vox posted a photograph of the boat, which apparently set out from its base in the port of Algeciras and made two trips into the waters around Gibraltar. Additionally, a second video of the shooting incident emerged, with a number of shots apparently heard ringing out across the water. Foreign Office minister David Lidington condemned the attack on Mr Villa as “completely unacceptable” and called on Spain to take action against those responsible. Mr Lidington said

he had confronted his Spanish counterpart, Inigo Mendez de Vigo, to protest “in the strongest possible terms”. He added: “I made it clear that the discharge of a weapon in or near Gibraltar is completely unacceptable. “I urged Mr Mendez de Vigo to investigate urgently and to take action to ensure this will not happen again.’ Gibraltar’s chief minister, Fabian Picardo, has pledged to drag Prime Minister David Cameron into the diplomatic confrontation, saying he was forced to ignore normal procedure. “This incident, given what has now been

established, is so serious that it is right that I should refer it directly to the Prime Minister,” he said. “I will be doing so, accompanying what I send him with the relevant data for his information.” But Spain’s Foreign Ministry denied that any shots had been fired, and accused the British Government of granting too much credibility to a “rumour”. A spokesman said: “Spain will be communicating to Britain its unease at the fact that it has accepted an unconfirmed and false rumour, which affects the relationship between two partners and allies.”

YOU CAN'T STOP ESTRELLAS!

Hairspray the musical wows Tenerife audiences in the North and the South

The editor says... Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

Many months of rehearsals, trials and tribulations paid off last weekend as the talented students of Estrellas Theatre School finally performed their end of year show in both the north and south of the island. Hairspray the Musical,

in its entirety, was staged once in Los Realejos with the “North” students, and twice in Casa Cultural, Adeje by the “South” students, the final show being in conjunction with Amate, the Tenerife Breast Cancer support charity, for which they raised over 500 euros. It is quite astounding that one small island off the west coast of Africa could possibly hold such young talent, but that fact was proven beyond

all doubt last weekend, and one wonders where these kids will all be in 10 years time. They sang, they danced, they acted and most of all, they entertained. The show was an absolute pleasure to watch and the proud parents in the audience must have felt overjoyed that it all came together in the end. Next week the older students take themselves off for a well earned break at

summer camp, and they have certainly earned it. For more information about the Estrellas Theatre School, and how to enrol in time for September, please contact proprietor Maureen Sands on 647 844 794 or mo@ estrellastheatreschool. com. You can also catch up with events on their Facebook page, Estrellas Theatre School. Looking forward to next year’s production already, well done to all.

Government backs A

regional airline plan

An ambitious plan by the Hoteliers Association (Ashotel) has been supported by the Canarian Government.

Ashotel have suggested that the Islands need to create their own airline to secure the long term tourism trade. They believe that the Islands main income is 'solely at the discretion' of tour operators. The Canary Islands Deputy Tourism Minister, Ricardo Fernandez, feels the government will support the creation of the propsed airline, but ruled out a direct role in its shareholding. “Ashotel's words are positive for what we are

trying to achieve. They will have our institutional support but we should not participate directly.” It's hard to see how Fernandez could say anything different. He needs to be supportive whilst keeping the tour companies onside. The proposed Ashotel project would need an initial investment of at least 25 million euros. This would be mainly for the purchase of three A330-300 aircraft that would shuttle between Madrid and Barcelona. This will allow for between 180,000 and 200,000 extra seats every year. This is seen as a starting point with future routes to include international destinations. There is also a back up plan to lease aircraft

28th June - 4th July 2013

rather than purchasing them. Ashotel are trying to arrest a worsening situation which has seen the number of German holidaymakers, for example, decline by over 10% this year. This is not because the Islands have lost their appeal. The number of flights and more importantly seats available have sharply declined. Fewer seats means fewer visitors and empty hotel beds. There is some good news from the Government. They have submitted a plan to the European Union's Development Flight Fund. This would see some aid coming into the airports and would allow a reduction in the airport fees which are charged to airlines. This

could see more planes arriving as Tenerife becomes a more economically viable option. The Government is already under pressure to exert pressure on the Islands airports to reduce these charges. But in a pure economic cycle, the airports are trying to increase the fees to top up the required income from the reduced flights because of the current costs! Meanwhile Ashotel's plan has provoked widespread debate on the possible Canarian Islands project. The big stumbling block will be raising the finance. Private investors and institutes are wary of the airline sector while the bigger hotel groups are unlike to want to become, in essence, travel companies.

Technology moves so fast these days, in barely a decade we have gone from MSN to Friends Reunited to Facebook, and now Twitter is king. The difference with Twitter is the whole world is listening to what you say. It's a brilliant concept and something I urge you to try. Take Tenerife for example.

Adeje Buddhist Centre offers folk good karma JOSÉ Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, the Major of Adeje, and the Buddhist Lama Tenzin Khenrab Rinpoche, have invited residents to visit the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre in South Tenerife.

They made the announcement at a joint press conference in Adeje Cultural Centre while speaking of the new school, which has actually been in operation since October 2012. It was officially opened last Friday (21st June) by Lama “Rinpoche”, which literally means “precious one” and is used to address or de-

entitled Relations and Spirituality, was free to the public, and also present was Adeje Education Councillor Andrés Pérez Ramos. Mayor Rodríguez Fraga said Adeje was delighted to welcome back the Lama, who who is highly qualified and respected throughout the world. “Between him and the dedicated group of Buddhist followers, they have guaranteed that Adeje can boast one of the few Tibetan Buddhist Schools linked directly to the Dalai Lama,” he said proudly. The Mayor was “delighted” with this initiative, adding that it was a further demonstration of the true image of Adeje and its people, reflecting a modern, dynamic and inter-cultur-

scribe Tibetan lamas and other high-ranking or respected teachers. This honour, often used within the Tibetan Buddhist culture, is usually reserved for “Tulkus” or recognised reincarnate Lamas, and those acknowledged by the relevant authorities as venerated or highlyregarded Lamas. The press conference,

Tenzin Khenrab Rinpoche will be the spiritual guide for the Ghe Pel Ling School of Tibetan Buddhist Studies, based in Torviscas, where the theory and philosophy of karma will form the general basis for classes, from which are derived the influ-

Twenty-eight Britons were nabbed by police last Friday for playing bingo in a bar, even though there was no prize-money involved. Those caught in The Yorkshire Tavern, in Albufeira, were each

fined 300 euros, plus a three-month suspended sentence, and those simply drinking were fined 150 euros with a three-month suspended sentence for “observing a crime”. The landlady, Marianne Pittaway, 34, was fined 700 euros and received a four-month suspended prison sentence for “illegal

ence of “good things over bad” through the actions of individuals. Adeje’s Mayor said the Buddhist Centre was now at the disposition of Adeje society, and would, he believed, encourage positivity and happiness without people having to renounce any of their personal religious beliefs. That’s because, he added: “Here in the West, Buddhism is seen as more of a philosophy, or way of living, than a religion. And with this in mind, he issued a general invitation to everyone to get to know the Centre and its teachings. For his part Tenzin Khenrab Rinpoche, who was assisted by a translator, welcomed the cooperation of the Mayor and the Education Councillor in facilitating the school opening, and their presence at the official opening ceremony. The Lama said the opening of the teaching centre was down to the presence in Adeje of some of his past pupils, and their belief that it would help Adeje and its citizens - and South Tenerife in general. He spoke briefly of the

gambling”. Her partner, 47-year-old Antonio Cardoso, was given a 500-euro fine and also a four-month suspended sentence. The players were questioned by police for four hours under strict gambling laws, which mean organisers of bingo or raffle nights must apply for a oneoff government licence each time. These same

He added: “Of course, I am like every other person in the world; I have my own character, and I get angry. But at all times I work to control that emotion, and avoid projecting it on to others. “In our philosophy, contrary to Christianity, Islam or Judaism, there is no notion of sin. People are free to decide to be good or bad, but they must also accept the consequences which will arise as a result of their actions. “In other words, if we commit bad deeds we will suffer, and if, on the other hand, we carry out good works, we will earn satisfaction.” The Tibetan master then invited Adeje’s residents to come to the school to get to know first-hand a philosophy that sees all human drama as a direct reaction to past acts, good or evil.

licensing laws apply throughout Spain and the Canaries, which could eventually lead to an end to those nice little weekly earners for bar-owners over here. A bewildered Marianne said: “I am mortified by this. We were not expecting it at all. I was hoping they would let everyone else off and just fine me".

Parents face backlash over teenage drinkers PARENTS taking boozed-up kids to Spanish hospitals regularly for treatment may face fines in the future.

The Spanish Government hopes to curb under-age drinking by imposing stricter rules on their mums and dads, who could even be charged with child abuse if the youngsters are drinking at home. Ministers say that although it is possible that under-18s may fall into an alcohol-induced coma “once or twice” out of curiosity, it is a sign of “parental neglect” if it happens frequently. Francisco Babín, who runs the National Drug Prevention Plan, believes under-age drinking can lead to brain damage in the long run

because the kids are not fully developed. He adds that damage to the kidneys and livers of children or teenagers is far more severe than the alcohol effects

on adult drinkers. “We don’t hold out any expectations of sanctioning parents beyond a fine and a slapped wrist,” said Babin. “That’s because there

is no A&E department in Spain which does not treat numerous under18s for alcohol-induced comas every weekend. Drinking yourself unconscious can be fatal, especially in children and teenagers.” Psychologist Raúl Izquierdo, who is working with the Govern-

ment on the campaign, said: “There are kids as young as 11 who are taken to hospital in alcohol-induced comas. “This is simply barbaric, and botellones [bring-your-own-bottle, street-drinking parties] with no adults present, and no limits on how much is drunk, can be

life-threatening. “Also, uncontrolled drinking sometimes goes hand in hand with taking other substances.” An on-screen campaign with a popular TV actor called “Alcohol is not a game” has been launched, and the Government is also considering censoring drink advertising to under-18s. The average age of when children in Spain have their first “proper” alcoholic drink is 13.7 years, which can cause serious tissue damage, said Izquierdo. It can also cause permanent psychological harm and affect brain development, as well as leading to abysmal school performances and family conflicts. Over 75% of teenagers aged 14-18 consume alcohol regularly - nearly 50% at 14 and 86% by 18 demonstrating that the incidence and frequency of drinking increases with age throughout the teenage years.

The sowing of a seed FRIDAY June 21st saw the opening of south Tenerife's newest Irish, Dutch, Spanish Cafeteria, in the Apolo centre, Los Cristianos.

Support came from The Sound of Musicals, Pinkies hair and nail salon, & Blue cloud clinic

to name a few along with prizes from the trust, which all helped to raise over 350 euros.

The Willows opening offered a chance to support THE DOGS WELFARE TRUST TENERIFE again in the Apolo centre. The evening which saw more than 50 friends of Mark & Ev, both old and new some of which travelled back to Tenerife for the night. They were treated to over 25 traditional and new spun Tapas.

Dynamo does it again! The illusionist Dynamo brought London to a standstill once again this week as he performed another jaw dropping stunt.

The 30 year old has become a worldwide star over the last couple of years and this week's stunt has made headlines all over the globe. The man who famously walked on the Thames again stunned London as he appeared to float across Westminster Bridge while levitating from the side of a full double-decker bus. Dynamo began the stunt, sponsored by Pepsi Max, by gripping the roof of the bus as it departed Millbank before taking in Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament before then crossing Westminster Bridge. Traffic ground to a halt and thousands of pedestrians reached for their

camera phones. Afterwards Dynamo said: “This is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever attempted. My partnership with Pepsi Max is all about living for now and nothing explains this better than by taking one of London’s most iconic modes of transport and putting a different spin on the journey. The reaction of the public as I was travelling was incredible and it was great to see so many people taking in the excitement.” And it wasn't just the public who were applauding. David Penn, another of Britain's leading illusionists, praised the 30-year-old for his "excellent" trick and said it would have been months in the making. “To present that illusion in a urban environment like that is incredibly challenging, especially on the side of a moving bus. It really pushes the boundaries," he said. "It was probably incredibly dangerous, he's

got a lot of guts.” The Bradford born star has amazed the public and the world's celebrities over the last few years. He has famously levitated Lindsay Lohan, James Corden and Matt Lucas, performed card tricks for Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z and Will Smith. He dazzled Natalie Imbruglia by

making cardboard butterflies come alive and memorably bemused Radio 1 dj Scott Mills. The latest event for Dynamo, whose real name is Steven Frayne, comes just a week before the return of his eagerly anticipated TV show on Watch. The last season broke all records for the TV channel.

Grand effort from the Man on a wire

Nik Wallenda entered the record books this week as he completed a stunning tightrope walk that took him a quarter mile over the Little Colorado River Gorge in Arizona.

The daredevil performed the stunt on a steel cable which was just 2 inches thick, 1,500 feet above the river near the Grand Canyon. Wallenda literally ran the distance needed just 23 minutes to complete the crossing. He even sprinted the last 20 yards! Conditions were far from perfect as high winds whipped around him and the rope swayed often. Oh and he didn't wear a harness! During the walk he said: 'Thank you Lord. Thank you for calming that cable,

Page 12

God” The 34 year old said prayers during the walk and seemed totally focussed through out. Afterwards he played down talk of him being a daredevil saying: “I do consider what I do an art. And I consider a daredevil more of somebody who says: “I’m going to do something that’s never been done before but I haven’t trained for it.” I train and train and train and over-train for this.” Wallenda is a seventhgeneration high-wire

artist and is part of the famous 'Flying Wallendas' circus family. The troupe have never used safety nets after one of them bounced out of a net and died. His greatgrandfather, Karl, the troupe’s founder, was killed aged 73 while attempting a tightrope walk between the two ten-storey-high towers of a Puerto Rico hotel. Over 600 spectators watched the walk on a video screen on the site and millions of Americans saw the event live on the Discovery channel. Wallenda said afterwards that he hoped his next stunt would be a tightrope walk between the Empire State building and the Chrysler building in New York. However he did confirm he would retire if his wife and children ever asked him. That said his wife Erendira is also a wire walker so maybe we haven't seen that last of him just yet.

Car-hire complaints Extra charges are the biggest source of complaint for consumers when it comes to car hire, and six in 10 people are unhappy with the way their car-hire complaint was handled, a survey by Which? reveals. The new research follows their investigation into car hire charges in May when they found that some car hire companies are not being upfront about all car-hire fees. In the latest survey they found around one in 10 (12%) Which? members who hired a car in the last two years has complained. A quarter (27%) complained about extra charges added on when the car was returned and nearly one in five (17%) complained about extra charges on

pick up. The other top reasons for complaint were customer service (14%), condition of the car (11%) and fuel charges (10%). Of those who complained, a staggering six in 10 said that their complaint was handled poorly or very poorly. Avis had the worst complaints rating, with 59% saying their complaint was handled

28th June - 4th July 2013

poorly or very poorly, and only 19% saying it was handled well. All of the top four car-hire companies most used by Which? members were rated more negatively than positively for complaints. In May they called for all car hire companies to be more upfront about compulsory charges and car-hire fees. They reminded car

hire companies about their legal obligations under European and UK law to be transparent about compulsory and other significant charges at the point of purchase. Brokers Auto Europe and Economy Car Hire have since made improvements, with further pledges to Which? from car-hire companies Avis, Dollar/ Thrifty and Enterprise

to make costs clearer. Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director, said: “People are completely fed up with sneaky car hire charges and, to add insult to injury, we now discover they are also getting a poor response when they complain about it. “Car-hire websites must be clearer about their charges to allow consumers

to shop around for the best deal. We are pleased to see some companies pledging to make charges more transparent following our last investigation but we need to see all of them making improvements, including how they deal with complaints.” To make sure that you aren’t hit with an unexpected bill, Which? advise consumers to do the following: Before booking: make sure you know the insurance options, fuel policy, fees for extra drivers and one-way charges. Picking up the car: don’t be pressured to buy extra insurance if you don’t need it and inspect for damage. Returning the car: Make sure that you check for damage, fill up the car and question any unexpected charges incurred.

Cowa-Bunga Bunga! Ex-Italian PM guilty! Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian Prime Minister has been sentenced to seven years in jail and banned from serving in public office for the rest of his life.

After a lengthy trial the 76 year old was convicted of having sex with an underage prostitute, a Moroccan woman Karima El Mahroug and abuse of power. Berlusconi is still a free man today as under Italian law he remains out of prison while his appeal is heard. The media tycoon and former owner of football giants AC Milan still denies that he had sex with El Mahroug. “I intend to resist this persecution because I am absolutely innocent. It is not only bad justice, it is an offence to all Italians who have believed in me and trusted in my commitment to the country" he said after the verdict. His lawyer Niccolo Ghedini announced an immediate appeal: "This is beyond reality. The judges even went beyond the prosecutors' request." This referrers to the sentence imposed by the Milan court which was one more year than the six-year term demanded by the prosecution. It's not the first verdict that has gone against

the veteran politician as he is still appealing a guilty tax evasion verdict which could see him jailed for another four years. This court case ends a two-year trial which made headlines around the world. The infamous 'Bunga Bunga' parties have now become legendary. It's alleged that Berlusconi and his wealthy and influential pals partied with topless women and enjoyed erotic party games. In his defence Berlusconi insisted the parties were regular dinners with female burlesque dancers. Berlusconi was ultimately convicted of paying for sex with El Mahroug who was just 17 at the time of the parties. Known as "Ruby the Heart Stealer" she was a regular guest at the 'Bunga Bunga' parties. He was also found guilty of abusing the powers of his office. Prosecutors proved he arranged to have El Mahroug released from police custody after she was arrested on a theft allegation. Despite the convictions it's unlikely that Berlusconi will see any jail time. The Italian appeals process can take many many years and even then he may escape prison. Italy has a very lenient sentencing ruling for people over the age of 70. Meanwhile French footballers Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema

have gone on trial also accused of paying a minor for sex. One of the two internationals said he had “no idea” she was under age, a court heard this week. Bayern Munich's Ribery, 30, and Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, 25, could face up to three years’ jail if convicted of having sex with Dehar between 2008 and 2009 when she was aged from 16 to 17. Ribery’s lawyer Carlo-Alberto Bruso said: “There was nothing about her that suggested a vulnerable person. She is a woman always made-up, with her hair done and well dressed.” The age of consent in France is 15, and prostitution is legal, but only if both parties are over 18. Ribery's defence will centre on his assertion that Dehar looked far older than her actual years. Benzema denies any sexual relationship with Dehar who is now a celebrity in France. She regularly appears on reality TV shows and has her own popular lingerie range. Court documents claim Ribery, who is a Muslim and married, paid her 750e for sex at a hotel in 2009 and that Benzema is suspected of paying her 500e for sex in 2008. The trial was adjourned until January to enable the law on underage prostitution in France to be reviewed.

The charity Cancer Research UK says around 2,000 men in the UK are diagnosed with the disease every year. The most common symptom for testicular cancer is a painless lump or swelling in the testicles but these can also be signs of something less serious. Cancer Research UK says of all the men in the UK diagnosed with testicular cancer, more than 97 out of 100 survive for at least five years.

The 69 year old wed his long-term partner Mellody Hobson at his Skywalker Ranch in a quiet ceremony. Lucas was previously married to film editor Marcia Lucas for 14 years before they divorced in 1983. It is the first marriage for Hobson who is 25 years her husband’s junior. Hobson is chair of the board at Dreamworks Animation and is also president of investment firm Ariel Investments. Legendary film directors Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard were amongst the guests. Samuel L. Jackson who played Mace Windu in the Star Wars franchise was also in attendance. He tweeted: "Let's give a Galactic shout out to Master George Lucas

race nights, BBQs, sponsored activities and dinner-dances - all with raffles and auctions. “We are grateful for the continued and growing support from many local generous businesses, and our supporters.” One of the main focuses for Helping Hands is the Guardyl C hi ldren’s Centre in Granadilla, run by the Social Services. But because of Government cutbacks, staff at the centre rely heavily on local support to help their under-privileged kids. The centre is there to help children from troubled backgrounds, and its remit is to take care of the 26 children who attend - before, during and after school. They are fed

there, and it’s a safe place for them to do their homework, play and even bath. But the centre is in constant need of financial aid, and Helping Hands raises funds so that materials to help the Guardyl staff and kids alike can be purchased especially educational items. Liz, who works tirelessly for the charity, said proudly: “We purchase muchneeded school materials for all the children, and anything else they need, such as clothes, shoes, as well as birthday and Christmas presents. “The funds enable the children to enjoy excursions, especially in the summer holiday months, which have already been planned for this year. “We have a swimming pool and barbecue day, a trip to the forestal park in La Laguna, a visit to the Ecological Farm in Guimar, and also

Adoption is better option to desertion THE everescalating straydog crisis on the Island was highlighted this week with arrival of another four puppies at the refuge.

the refuge is fully inoculated, micro-chipped, wormed, deflead and castrated. All Accion asks for is a donation of your choice towards the refuge costs. Pictured here are Boris and Rico, two of our adopted dogs who are now enjoying a new life with their owners. They are two of the lucky ones because some of the dogs have waited years to be rehomed. But maybe one day their luck will change. The refuge has over 50 Podencos (Canarian hunting dogs), which really do make loving pets. And with the hunting season upon us, many more are sure to come into the refuge - mostly starving, injured and no longer able to hunt, which is why they are

tossed aside so callously by their owners. Accion del Sol is open Monday-Friday (36pm) and is situated at junction 51 on the TF-1, next to the ITER ecological wind farm on the Granadilla p In-

But we believe every dog deserves a chance, so we offer any of them over the age of 10 as a permanent foster dog. This means the dog stays legally ours, and we pay all vet care and medicines.

SOME time ago, San Miguel de Abona Lions Club members called at the Central Educational Especial centre (CEE) in Guargacho offering help.

They had read in the press that they were in need of funds and were promptly presented with a list of must-have items. Top of the list, and “really urgent” was a spe-

cially-designed room with a playpen for a disruptive five-year-old girl, who had to be kept separate from the other children. A carpenter was called in, the room was designed and, says Lions President Ralph Solomon: “We are pleased to say it has now been completed and we have paid the bill.” The photo shows VicePresident Nan and club members Jackie and Luis officially handing over the cheque to two of the centre’s officials.

Croatia simply spellbinding CROATIA’S entry into the European Union on Monday (1st July) marks an undoubted landmark in the country’s contrasting history.

The move follows its War of Independence (1991-1995) and the subsequent break-up of Yugoslavia, which left the country damaged politically, economically and spiritually. Since then, however, Croatia has tried to build a new identity, combining both its natural and cultural heritage with a clear, touristic vision of the future.

the European Union on Monday and the evidence that it has become extremely popular with British holidaymakers over the past two years or so is plain to see. Sales of its currency, the kuna, have increased by 55% in the first six months of the year against the same period in 2012, which is proof of that popularity. It is now the sixth most-popular currency offered by the Post Office, even though the value of sterling has fallen by almost 5% it since last summer, giving tourists less for their money. Yet recent research suggests that a Croa-

The Croatian National Tourist Board motto, The Mediterranean as it once was, is a 21stcentury nod towards respect for the environment and sustainable tourism. It is a must-see country of dramatic, mountainous landscapes and dreamy, deep-blue seascapes, and it is now easier to visit than ever before. Big improvements have been made in the national infrastructure: the motorway network has been extended and modernised, and many hotels have been renovated and given a fresh look with smart, contemporary designs. And, happily for holiday-makers, it has also become much easier to reach, with more and more airlines now flying from Britain to Croatia in three hours or less! Croatia will become the 28th member of

tian holiday still offers better value for money than many other European destinations. The Post Office’s Holiday Costs Barometer found that prices in Split were cheaper than in Nice, Tuscany, Sorrento, Malta and Bodrum. Andrew Brown, of Post Office Travel Money, said the recent surge of kuna sales was somewhat surprising, but added: “Croatia really seems to be Europe’s invogue destination. “It has been growing steadily in popularity over the past five years, but the latest boost suggests the country is about to become even more popular.” Yet Croatia’s tourism sector has a long history, with traces of Roman summer villas on the Dalmatian islands. But its large-scale development came about during the Yugoslav era.

Page 18

That’s when big, modern, resort hotels, equipped with excellent sports facilities, were built along the Croatian coast. And sports were, and still are, tremendously important. With a population of just 4.3million, Croatia’s sporting success is remarkable. The national football team are currently ranked fourth in the world by FIFA and the men’s water-polo team won gold at the 2012 Olympics. It is not surprising, nowadays, that lovers of the great outdoors come to Croatia specifically for its adventuresports facilities. Between the sea and the mountains, you can enjoy sailing, scuba diving, kayaking, rafting, mountain-biking and rock-climbing. For those in search of history and culture, city destinations such as Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar offer Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Austro-Hungarian monuments. The historic centres of Dubrovnik and Split are actually Unesco world heritage sites, as are the cathedrals in Trogir and Sibenik and the basilica in Porec. These cities, against a backdrop of splendid, historic buildings, stage summer festivals hosting open-air concerts and after dark-theatre, often attracting international performers of renown. While Croatia’s rocky stretch of Adriatic coast is not suitable for large-scale tourist development - no sign of any long sandy beaches found in Greece and Spain - it is astoundingly beautiful, offering numerous small pebble coves, backed by pinewoods, and leading on to a crystal-clear, turquoise sea. This combination of timeless, unspoilt nature, coupled with beautifully-preserved centuries-old architecture and a lively contemporary cultural scene, promises rewarding memories for anyone who wishes to explore it now. And for those inclined, there is an ever-growing number of electronic and alternative music

festivals. If you are not tied to school holidays, the best time to visit Croatia is during the months of May and June, or September and October. During those periods, you can expect pleasant, sunny days, ideal for swimming in the sea and sunbathing, with all the tourist facilities up and running but no crowds. It’s also the perfect time for outdoor activities such as hiking, mountainbiking, rafting and taking to the sea in kayaks. In contrast, the peak season of July and August sees the coastal resorts extremely busy, with soaring temperatures and a steep rise in hotel room prices. On the plus side, though, you do get open-air cultural events and a buzzing, cosmopolitan nightlife. In low s e a s o n (Novemb e r- A p r i l ) , many hotels and coastal attractions close down for winter, and the weather becomes chilly and unreliable. But this is when you might come across some excellent offers on lowcost flights and city hotels - and you’ll get a better feeling for how the locals live. There are year-round flights between London and Zagreb, and London and Dubrovnik, while in the summer, there’s also a good choice of budget airlines serving various destinations along the coast. And flight times from London to Zagreb are surprisingly short: London to Dubrovnik is just 2hrs 40min, Manchester to Split 2hrs 50min, and

Manchester to Dubrovnik three hours. The following airports are served by international flights: Zagreb (zagreb -airport.hr); Dubrovnik (airportdubrovnik.hr); Pula (airport-pula.hr); Split (split-airport.hr); and Zadar (zadar-airport. hr). Check out the details with British Airways, EasyJet, Monarch, Jet2. com, Ryanair, Thomson Airways and Luton’s Wizz Air. It is also possible to arrive in Croatia by ferry or catamaran from Italy.

The Croatian company Jadrolinija (jadrolinija.hr) runs overnight, all-year-round ferries from Ancona to Split, Ancona to Zadar and Dubrovnik to Bari. Blue Line (bluelineferries.com) also covers the Ancona-Split route. And during the summer months, Italian company SNAV (snav. it) runs a high-speed daytime catamaran from Ancona to Split, while Venezia Lines (venezialines.com) operates catamarans from Venice to Porec, Rovinj and Pula in Istria.

Another new

Ryanair route

Ryanair's commitment to the Canary Islands received another boost this week with news of another new route from the UK.

The low-cost airline as agreed a deal with Robin Hood Airport to Tenerife from South Yorkshire this winter. The weekly service begins in October with flights every Thursday. Steve Gill the airports spokesman was pleased with the new venture: “We are delighted that Ryanair are continuing the Tenerife South route for the winter season. It will be fantastic for passengers who are looking for a winter sun break as they will benefit from low-cost flights to Tenerife amongst our other fantastic destinations. "The convenience of leaving from South Yorkshire combined with great value and low-cost fares is anoth-

er worthwhile reason to fly local.” The deal is good news for Tenerife and also for Robin Hood airport which has been struggling recently. A few days ago it was revealed passenger numbers had decreased in 2012 while other airports in the region saw an increase. For example, passenger numbers were 67,072 in May, down nearly 1% compared with the same month last year. The announcement ties in with Ryanair's winter schedule launch and another gimmick. This week they announced a 100,000-seat sale across its entire European network with prices starting from just 25 euros for travel in July and August. Spokeperson Maria Macken said: “Ryanair is pleased to launch our Doncaster winter sun 2013 schedule, with a weekly flight to Tenerife. Passengers in South Yorkshire can now enjoy sunshine all year round, thanks to Ryanair’s ultra-low fares.”

Banish those Monday blues - book a holiday ONE minute past midday on a Monday is likely to be the most popular time to book a holiday.

That, says a holidayhome lettings agency, is when many workers beat the “Monday blues” by going online to sort it out during the lunch-hour. A spokesman for holidaylettings.co.uk said: “Many seem to be booking their next break in the sunshine to get over their blues at the start of the working week. “This is made even easier now

that booking holidays online is the way most people arrange their trips. It means you can do it while sitting at your desk, in a matter of minutes. “And if you’re having a bad day, lining up your next break can make you feel better.” Researchers who polled 2,000 people found that three in 10 Britons have booked a holiday during a lunch hour. Meanwhile, Scottish holiday-makers spend over a quarter more than the UK average when it comes to having fun on their hardearned breaks.

28th June - 4th July 2013

4th of July

firecracker THE United States of America claimed its independence from Britain on 4th July, 1776 - and democracy was born, along with mammoth annual celebrations throughout the country.

And even now, thousands leave their homeland every day to come to the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave” to start their American Dream. The US is truly a diverse nation, made up of dynamic people, and each year on Independence Day (this Thursday), Americans, expats and visitors alike celebrate that freedom with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings. Independence Day, also known as the Fourth of July, is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays and, along with other summer-themed events, celebrations usually take place outdoors. It’s the kind of adventure that would appeal to holiday-makers in need of a new buzz, perhaps, after visiting the same old countries year in, year out. The big day is classed as a “federal” holiday, and decorations abound, like streamers and balloons, generally coloured red, white, and blue to match the American flag. Parades are often held in the morning, while huge fireworks displays frequent parks, fairgrounds and town squares as dusk falls. The Independence Day fireworks are often accompanied by patriotic songs such as The Star-Spangled Banner, the national anthem, God Bless America, This Land Is Your Lan, and, regionally, Yankee Doodle in north-eastern states and Dixie down south.

And at noon within most military bases, a salute of one gun for each US state is fired called a “Salute to the Union”. New York City actually put on the largest fireworks display ever seen in the country four years ago, with over 22 tons of pyrotechnics lighting up the skies for miles around. Other major displays are held in Chicago on Lake Michigan; in San Diego over Mission Bay; in Boston on the Charles River; in St. Louis on the Mississippi River; in San Francisco over the San Francisco Bay; and on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Every one of them is a sight to behold, especially for travellers who may never have seen anything like it before. While the official Independence Day rituals are earmarked for 4th July, some fireworks displays and celebrations may take place over the weekend if the date is not convenient. But it’s a measure of the excitement generated by the countrywide celebrations that the first week of July is, typically, one of the busiest US travel periods of the year. One of the most constant shows is country legend Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic, which is coming up to its 40th year and still

featuring headline entertainers. It takes place at Fort Worth, Texas - Willie’s home state - and this year has the great singer-songwriter Leon Russell appearing again, along with many country heroes. Willie is not widely recognised in the UK - aficionados apart - and is probably best-known for his To All The Girls I’ve Ever Loved duet with Julio Iglesias, which gave him his only British chart success and biggest Europe hit in 1984. But in the States, “Shotgun” Willie, who recently celebrated his 80th birthday, is revered as an institution, and anything he touches really does turn to gold, including his Fourth of July bash. The Boston Pops Orchestra have hosted a music-and-fireworks show over the Charles River Esplanade annually since 1973. The event has been broadcast nationally from 1987 and has proved to be a huge attraction. Not to be outdone, over half-a-million people are drawn annually to the Capitol lawn in Washington, DC, where A Capitol Fourth free concert precedes the firework display. Gatlinburg, in Tennessee, kicks off America’s Fourth of July celebrations, attracting up to

100,000 spectators for the nation’s first Independence Day Parade. It begins onthe stroke of midnight as 3rd July ends and the parade features giant helium balloons, patriotic floats and more. During the day, the festivities continue with the annual River Raft Regatta, beginning at noon, with the Stand Here Fireworks Finale downtown at 10pm. You can actually warm up for Independence Day in San Francisco with a trip to the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival on Fillmore Street on the 2nd and 3rd July. You’ll be able to hear and see amazing live performances by jazz musicians from all over the world and then, on the magical 4th, Pier 39 is the place to be. The party starts at noon and continues until around 9.30pm. Live music and street performers are just some of the entertainment awaiting you throughout the day, and once the sun sets, you can enjoy a fireworks extravaganza over San Francisco Bay (fog permitting). Other good viewing points include the Cannery, Fisherman’s Wharf, Aquatic Park and Ghirardelli Square. As well as the fireworks, you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants hosting barbeques and parties throughout the city. San Francisco boasts an intriguing collection of neighbourhoods, which are ideal for some post-Independence Day tourist adventures. These are just some of the states worth visiting around 4th July, but there are many, many more attractions to be found in America - and not only on Independence Day. It’s a good time to start exploring the US if you’ve not yet had it on your agenda. And you’ll be surprised at how inexpensive it can be to dine, sleep and travel around there.

The Big Interview

www.canarianweekly.com

New jock on the radio block DJ Ben Simington has been a face on the Tenerife night scene for a while and he is back on Oasis Fm. He is hosting the Papagayo show every Friday night between 8 and 11pm, and a two hour Saturday night show from 8pm. Ben is no stranger to radio or Oasis Fm. He presented a successful show a couple of years back, and has returned for the summer. He is currently in demand all over the world, and when he is not gigging or producing in his own studio, he can be found surfing the waves in Las Americas beach. Somehow we managed to grab five minutes with the nail biting, Marmite munching, Prada wearing Goodfella who could become the biggest DJ to come out of Norwich since Alan Partridge!

About Ben: How and why did you become a DJ? I first started Djing in the UK in the early 90s, it was all hardcore and early jungle. I had an old set of late 70s disco decks with no pitch adjustment, we used to just try and drop the tracks at the right time. At 16 I had progressed into playing house music on 1210s and was getting a lot of gigs around Norwich for private parties & clubs even though I was underage!. I loved the idea from an early point in my career of making people dance all night, seeing everyone enjoy the music and style I was playing. I learned that even if there is one person dancing and enjoying it or 100,000 people at a festival, the feeling is the same. Who was your biggest influence? That's a tough one! There have been so many. In the early days, Djs like Dougal, Sy & SS. Then Brandon Block & the early Ibiza lot. Now, I think the most influential for me throughout my career has been Roger Sanchez. What do you love about your job? Making people happy and surprising them. What do you hate? Rude people who expect you to play whatever they want then sulking if they don't get there own way. Where do you see club music in ten years? I think the club scene is struggling at the mo-

Page 20

ment. There has been a massive influx off EDM (electronic dance music) and it has really damaged the scene. It seems the clubs with Dj's just playing the same top 10 tracks on repeat! If it carries on in ten years time I think it will just all sound the same. I hope its just a phase and house music will go back underground where it belongs and continue to evolve in the right way. What was your best DJ experience and why? I think one of my last gigs away in the Mauritius, I had a group of 2,000 over 40 - 70 year olds rocking out to underground techno! They went absolutely crazy! Just goes to show you that you are never get to old for house music. But I m very lucky I have had so many wonderful experiences in the last 15 years. And your worst? None :) (Honestly!) Got any Pitbull? Pitbull arrrrrrgh dont get me started! No I respect what the likes of Pitbull, David Guetta & Flo Rida have done. They have cornered a market and really run with it, but it really is not for me. What advice would you give a young DJ? Don't be afraid to ask for help and don't think you know it all because you have been playing for a year. I love picking other Djs brains and I am always trying to learn new tricks. Try and play a different set every time

you are on. But believe me, it's harder than it sounds! Who will be the next big thing? My money is on Hot Creations (Jamie Jones and Lee Ross). They are already massive but this year is defo their year! What Djing ambitions to do you have? I'm going to be working with the London College of Music setting up a global online DJ school, so that is going to keep me busy. I am in Papagayo Beach Club most of the time and I have gigs in Thailand, Singapore, Marbella and Ibiza coming up, so my feet won't touch the ground this year. How do you find the difference between Djing in a club and on radio? Its huge! On radio its great to be able to play exactly what I want and hopefully give the listeners an insight into what is upcoming in the world of house. The Live Show is a roller coaster 4 deck mash-up. What can Oasis Fm listeners expect to hear on your show? The latest in house music,details of the tracks, some guest mixes and what I and the rest of the house world have been up to. What is your tune for the summer? So far I would say it has been 'Tube & Burger Imprint Of Pleasure'. I have played it at the beginning of the night & at 4am - it works every time!

Formula One: British Grand Prix – Qualifying Saturday 29 June, BBC1, 12.15 Suzi Perry presents live coverage from Silverstone, where qualifying for the British Grand Prix is taking place. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was the quickest last year to earn his place at the front of the grid, ahead of Red Bull’s Mark Webber – but the Australian reversed the positions in the race itself to win at the circuit for the second time in three years.

Sunday 30th June, BBC1, 12.05 Suzi Perry introduces live coverage of the British Grand Prix from Silverstone. Mark Webber (twice), Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel have won the race for the last four years – and in 2012, all three were on the podium, with Australian Webber on the top step. But his Red Bull team-mate Vettel had the last laugh, wrapping up his third consecutive Formula 1 title later in the season

Top Gear BBC2, 20.00 The world’s favourite car show returns for a brand new series and the action kicks off in New Zealand as Jeremy Clarkson and James May race a car against a boat in a nail-biting battle up the beautiful coastline to the very tip of the North Island. The boat is a state-of-the-art America’s Cup yacht whilst the car is of a type many of us are familiar with, yet never before seen on Top Gear. Meanwhile, back in the UK, Richard Hammond attempts to find a hot hatch hero from a trio of newcomers, the Renaultsport Clio 200, Peugeot 208 GTI and Ford Fiesta ST, and a cavalcade of top stars assemble at the track to welcome a brand new Reasonably Priced Car.

The documentary series giving a bird's-eye view of some of the world's greatest natural spectacles departs on its grand European tour, using a host of techniques including taking extraordinary footage from microlites as they fly alongside imprinted birds. Among other wonders, cameras soar with cranes and geese over Venice, the white cliffs of Dover and Edinburgh. White storks leave Africa and struggle to reach Istanbul, the gateway to Europe, while cranes take an easier route over the monkeyguarded Rock of Gibraltar. In France, the white horses of the Camargue make a splash around the new arrivals. In Rome, the heat of the city lures 20 million starlings that perform nature's greatest aerial display to outwit peregrines. In Hungary, sand martins grab mayflies from the air; and at Bass Rock, gannets create Britain's greatest natural spectacle as they dive in exquisite slow-motion. The story takes an emotional turn as storks and swallows wait for their partners to return.

Judy sold the rights for that franchise for a reported £70 million and is now topping up her own tan at her villa in Tuscany, while helping her son launch a new make-up business. Judy had to battle through cancer and now admits 'I never valued my own time or my health.' At Timpson, which owns around 950 shops and turned over £160 million in 2012, chairman John had a different battle - in the boardroom - to win back ownership of the company. 'I learnt the value of control. Fifty per cent is fine; a hundred per cent, a lot better.'.

Wimbledon 2013 BBC1, 13.45

Sue Barker presents live coverage of today’s play at Wimbledon, where the men’s and women’s quarterfinal line-ups will be confirmed - weather permitting. One of the victims of the British climate last year was Andy Murray, whose fourth-round match with Marin Cilic had to be suspended because of the rain. However, the Scot came out the following day to finish the job on his way to becoming Britain’s first men’s singles finalist at the All England Club for 74 years. Coverage continues across BBC One throughout the second week.

The Truth About Pills and Pregnancy. Current affairs. Many women have to take medicines while pregnant. But could they be risking the health of their unborn child? Decades after the Thalidomide scandal shocked the world, Panorama reveals how another medicine has damaged far more children. Drugs cannot be tested on pregnant women for ethical reasons, so doctors do not know if most prescription drugs are safe for the unborn child, and the system set up to monitor side-effects appears to be flawed.

Taking a journey back through 50 years and 62 DEC appeals, the programme hears from veteran aid workers about lessons learned from dealing with some of the world's biggest and most complex humanitarian disasters in places like Cambodia, Biafra, Ethiopia, Somalia and Rwanda. Rageh also travels to Haiti where three years ago 220,000 people died during the most deadly earthquake in modern times. He sees how £107 million from the DEC's Haiti Appeal has been spent on the ground. With behind-thescenes footage, the film also follows the story of the DEC's most recent appeal - Syria.

The Route Masters: Running London's Roads BBC2, 21:00

More people now travel on London buses each day than on the rest of the UK's buses combined. With passenger numbers up sixty percent since 2000, the capital's bus drivers are under colossal pressure. And from their cab, they see how our behaviour has changed in that time. Driver Alex is an old hand who complains that no-one says hello to him any more. Driver Sadie thinks we are all in such a hurry we are heading for nervous breakdowns. Trainee driver Christine is worried about getting lost. Behind every driver is a controller who tracks drivers' whereabouts and tells them to hurry up and slow down. The controllers themselves must hit strict targets if the service is to stay on track. The answer to all this pressure may lie in Transport for London's big new idea: to bring back the Routemaster, with conductors. We see the new 21st century Routemaster being built in the factory in Northern Ireland, and follow it as it hits the streets of London. Will it make bus travel fun again?

Starting with 150 pounds, they must source stock for a market stall, then buy more of their best sellers, before opening shops the next day. After deciding what to sell, they head straight out to source stock. One team settles on fashion, while the rest plump for homeware - but while some get off to a flying start, others lag behind. In the boardroom there is joy for some and heartbreak for others, and under questioning from Lord Sugar one candidate has a revelation in store.

She's unaware that she'll be under the wing of Titanic movie star Billy Zane who will navigate her journey around Hollywood to perfection. And what's more, Deborah also has no idea that while she's away Martyn will set about transforming her home into a musical-inspired extravaganza. So will our cravat wearing crusader raise the curtain in his attempt to convert a three-bed detached home into a West End style theatre or will his most dramatic ambition come crashing down on his design team?

Waterloo Road BBC1, 20.00

In this week’s visit to Waterloo Road, everyone’s thrilled to have Grantly back, alive and well; Tom prepares himself to donate his kidney to his life-long friend but when bad boy Kyle Stack shows up at Waterloo Road the day will end in disaster as Tom tries to help the trouble teen. Newly released from prison, former pupil Kyle Stack turns up unexpectedly at Waterloo Road. Old schoolmate Rhiannon is keen to help him enrol but Tom isn’t so welcoming, frogmarching Kyle to the exit. Upon seeing this, new deputy Simon Lowsley persuades Christine he has the necessary skills to get through to the boy. Initially doubtful, Tom is surprised to see a change in Kyle and begins to wonder if there’s more to his return to school than meets the eye. But things quickly turn sour when Barry goads Kyle about prison life which leads him to lash out before running away. As everyone grows worried about Kyle’s increasingly erratic behaviour, the race is on to find the missing schoolboy. As Grantly’s charity auction gets into full swing, Tom is astounded by his friend’s refusal to accept his kidney donation. As far as he’s concerned, Grantly’s being a stubborn fool and it takes strong words from Maggie to make him see sense. But as the charity fundraising fireworks explode in the skies above Waterloo Road, dark clouds loom over the school when a clearly disturbed Kyle is found up on the roof, alone. And as all eyes turn to Tom to reach out to the troubled teen, tragedy comes calling.

Cookery series. Passionate Italian and seasoned restauranteur Aldo Zilli and Bulgarian born chef de patron of Mayfair's Quince, Silvena Rowe, hit the road in their classic Citroen van in a culinary cook-off that takes them to several of Britain's best loved country shows. On the second day of their culinary road trip, they leave the south coast of Wales behind to travel to Trawden in Lancashire, where they prepare to enter their cheesecakes in the Trawden Show, competing against some of the best bakers in the area. Along the way, they catch up with local butcher Joseph Mellin to sample a local delight known as stew and 'ard. With sweeter thoughts, they pull up beside the ruins of Wycoller Hall and aim to outdo each other and the local competition with two very different takes on a classic cheesecake. Their efforts will be judged on a level playing field by seasoned judges Sue and Judy - can they win the day?

Entertainment

www.canarianweekly.com

Lap it up at Leonardo’s THE Canarian Weekly staff offer a warm welcome to Leonardo’s Bar, which is now sponsoring this page.

Leonardo’s, in Las Americas, is one of the most successful bars in Tenerife, offering nightly entertainment from award-winning duos and live performers. It has always been known as the No1 meeting place for many, and the entertainment truly is second to none. Owners David and Helen will not mind me saying that they are taskmasters, who expect the highest standards from all of their staff. Manager Steve Wynne

is in charge of the dayto-day running of the bar, and leads his team of workers very well. Throughout the year, Leonardo’s remains consistent in its delivery of fine service and clean-

liness in what is clearly one of the biggest venues in Las Americas and, indeed, the South of Tenerife. It has a huge terrace, which can seat over 100 people with ease, and

1, 2, 3… and you’re back in the room! IT has been a few years since we’ve seen a comedy hypnotist on stage here. But just like a bus, when you are waiting for one they never arrive, and then two or three turn up at once. Stage hypnosis has to be the hardest of shows to perform as it is totally reliant upon volunteers from the audience. Also, having spoken to many hypnotists over the years, even if you get lots of participants, there is no guarantee they will go under. Having said that, if the act is promoted correctly, starting at least three days before showtime, and the hypnotist has the full support of the compere, then the pros-

Page 36

pects of the show being a knockout - in a manner of speaking - are greatly increased. I’ve heard some sceptics say it’s all a fake, and that the people taking part are just playing a role and are not really in a hypnotic state. Hypnotists know when somebody is not really under, and the good ones will return that person to his/her seat in the audience without fuss. Rather than draw attention to the person concerned, they prefer to concentrate on those who actually are under. These shows are brilliant to watch and enjoy, and I am looking forward to seeing hypnosis on the circuit again to

add some variety back. Venues and comperes cannot just book a hypnosis show and expect the artiste just to turn up, go on stage and do the business. They need support, and the compere needs to discuss all the fine details of the show beforehand. Planning and preparation are the key to successful shows, and I hope that the three stage hypnotists who have decided to make Tenerife their home do well. He arrived on 20th June and you can find his details via the Facebook page “Tenerife Entertainers Available Tonight”. Try it out - you will have a whole lot of fun.

it is a lovely place to sit and enjoy a few cocktails in the daytime, or watch the sun disappear as the evening approaches. Inside the bar, there are comfortable sofas

or stools, around high tables, which are wellplaced for viewing the entertainment. There are two resident duos, Re-Loaded (Scotty and Shiel, both from Scotland) and Cormack and Mcrae (Aaron and Andy). All four guys are previous award-winners at the annual TEAs (Tenerife Entertainment Awards), producing fantastic harmonies together and covering a wide range of music. They are always first to deliver new material from artists such as The Swedish House Mafia, Bruno Mars and Maroon 5, as well as offering the big hits of recent years. The evening entertainment programme starts

at 8.30pm with a resident DJ, Jamie Drew, from Oasis Fm - that’ll be me then - and continues until 2.30am with the resident duos taking the stage at 9.30pm every night. Leonardo’s also plays host to the regular, organised bar crawls with the big tour operators drawing as many as 100 people and more through the summer months - and it’s a fact that large groups of people attract more people. There’s nothing more inviting than a full bar, and this one fills up early and remains so all night. It’s going to be a good summer in Leonardo’s this year, so make sure you pay them a visit.

WHAT'S NEW... IT’S a shame this Dame didn’t return to Tenerife sooner, but at least Jacqui Peters landed here on Tuesday, raring to go again! After a few years back in the UK, the only Shirley Bassey tribute I know of to have worked on the Island has decided to return to the sunshine to ply her trade. Jacqui hails from York and has had great success touring the UK and also the US - with her Dame Shirley Show. And, having seen her live here six years ago, and again at the Brewers Droop on the evening of her return, it’s clear she hasn’t lost any of the glam and sparkle that

comes with this classy show. In fact during her travels, she has added the experience of the big US stages, and she has toured alongside some big stars such as Dame Edna Everidge. Also, she has had an orchestra at her disposal instead of relying on backing tracks. When it comes to getting work here on the Island, sometimes the reputation that precedes

artistes is enough to secure work before they arrive. And Jacqui was booked up for five regular shows a week about a month ago when venues learned of her imminent return. Jacqui had a brilliant start at The Brewers Droop and blew the audience away with fantastic vocals and all the mannerisms for which Shirley Bassey is famed. But a word of warning: you’ll have to be quick if you would like this Dame’s name on a billboard outside your bar. With years of experience in Tenerife behind her already, Jacqui has picked the perfect time to return.

Some practical

By Sue McDonald ALL homes need some sort of window dressing to control the entry of light, and to stop the windows looking bare. But our needs here may be slightly different from other climates. One of the original purposes of curtaining is insulation - to keep the cold out and the heat in - which is not a problem in Tenerife! We have the opposite situation because for most of the year, we need to keep the heat out! And that is certainly the case at this time of year. Sun curtains used to be a rather ugly option, being white on one side, and silver on the other. But they do serve to reflect the heat away and, if kept closed during the midday hours, help keep the room cooler while you are out. An additional benefit is that they are completely light-proof and, therefore, ideal for making rooms dark during daylight hours. For those who have a sofa bed in the lounge, the use of sun curtain will obviously make the room easier and more comfortable to sleep in. And for those of us with children, sun curtains can be a godsend, particularly as our nights stay light until very late here in Tenerife. They are also useful for those of us who have the opportunity to stay in bed after the

Oscar Wilde Quote Case For IPhone by Literary Emporium 18.77 euros www.notonthehighstreet.com A quirky iPhone case featuring Oscar Wilde’s witty quote. This eye catching iPhone case is a fun and unique gift for a Dad, Brother, Husband or book lover. An unusual literary themed gift that is suitable for any occasion. This bold black and white iPhone case fits the iPhone 4, 4s or an iPhone 5 (if you select the option). Made from high quality rubber with an aluminium insert in the back, this case gives great protection for your iPhone. This iPhone case features a humorous quote from Oscar Wilde which reads:

Read the blog… sun has risen, or who occasionally suffer from hangovers or migraines, or just like to take a siesta in the afternoon! Using sun curtains, particularly if you are away from the property for any length of time, will also help to prevent fading of your furniture and fittings. However, over time, as these plastic curtains take the brunt of our lovely Tenerife sun, day in and day out, they or the tape will eventually become brittle and need replacing. One way to use white sun curtain is to team it with light voile on a separate track or pole. Voile is a light translucent material, often in white, or offwhite, but also available in colour. Yes, voile is a posh name for nets! But this combination is very practical because it means that during the day, you can have the voile pulled across, allowing light to enter, but giving privacy,

particularly if you have a property which is overlooked, or faces on to a public area such as the pool or a footpath. At night, the sun curtains can be pulled across together with the voile to make the room completely dark and private, and still look attractive. Since the inside of the sun curtain is white, it can be teamed with almost any voile. However, sun curtain now comes in 20 different colours as a material with a layer inside that makes it completely opaque. It means that you need only one curtain to do the job of sunblock, while looking nice as part of your interior design at the same time. So why not chill out and make sure your home stays cool and dark before the really hot weather hits! All items are available from Deco Nuevo, next to the old Travel Shop in Los Cristianos.

How to make your own hanging basket

IF you wish you had a hanging basket but can’t afford one from the garden centre, then why not make your own?

To display flowers at this time of year you don’t necessarily have to have a hanging basket. You could opt for containers and flower pouches, which add a whole new dimension to your patio or terrace. With hanging baskets and flower pouches you can brighten up a sunny wall, or with the right choice of plants, even add colour to those tricky shady areas. Hanging baskets need to be lined if they’re the traditional mesh wire type. You can use sheet plastic; even a green garden bin liner will do the job. Just cut to size and add some holes for drainage and the plants of course. Generally, when you’re creating a hanging basket, use one plant per inch of basket diameter – so 12 plants per 30cm (12 inch) hanging basket. The only exception to this is when you use strong-growing plants such as Fuchsias and Geraniums. In this case it is best to only use 5 plants per 30cm (12 inch) hanging basket. A 30cm (12 inch) container will comfortably hold about 6-8 plants.

Planting your own hanging basket 1. Place your empty hanging basket on a bucket so it is held firmly in place whilst you add the plants. 2. Adjust your liner so it fits the basket snugly. Trim off any excess that protrudes above the rim. Using sharp scissors make a series of 5cm (2 inch) slits in the sides of the basket liner to accommodate trailing plants. The trailing plants will eventually fill out and cover the wire frame. If the basket is deep enough, two layers of slits can be placed around the basket. 3. Create a soil mix by adding 20% perlite (small white stones) to a multi-purpose compost.

It is also a good idea to mix in some waterretaining granules and slow-release fertiliser to prevent baskets drying out quickly, and to feed plants through the summer season. 4. Fill your basket with the compost mix until it is level with the first layer of incisions and gently firm the compost down. 5. Plant your trailing plants by pushing the plants ‘head-first’ from the inside through the holes. 6. Continue to plant until all the HOLES have been filled; then dd more compost and work it around the roots of the plants until the basket is almost full – leave a 5cm (2 inch) gap

below the rim. 7. Plant further trailing plants around the rim – try and plant them so they grow in between the plants below. Choose a bushy upright plant for the centre. Fill in around the roots with further compost mix; aiming to keep the soil surface an inch below the rim of the basket to prevent compost spilling out when watering. 8. To finish, water your hanging basket thoroughly. Pouch planting Pouches are like green, sturdy bags made especially for planting. Simply fill the pouch full with the same compost mix you would use for a hanging basket and peg

the top closed whilst you plant the pouch up. Lay the flower pouch flat and gently push one plant into each pre-cut slit. Water around each plant and leave the pouch laying flat in a bright, position to grow for a while. After a few weeks you can remove the peg and hang your flower pouch upright. Use a strong bracket to hang your baskets from. Choose a sunny and warm location, preferably south-facing so your baskets and containers receive full sun all day. Due to the volume of plants in hanging baskets and containers, they dry out very quickly, especially here in Tenerife so

keep an eye on the soil moisture, and water twice daily. Not just for flowers Why not try edibles – herbs and veggies? The best plants for hanging baskets and containers include bush cucumbers such as ‘Vega’ or ‘Fanfare’, chilli peppers, cut-and-comeagain lettuce such as ‘Salad Bowl’, basket tomatoes, strawberries, peas, and dwarf beans. When growing strawberries in hanging baskets, incorporate a slow-release strawberry fertiliser into the compost for the best crops. Herbs suitable for hanging baskets include parsley, basil, sage, chamomile, chives, marjoram, sorrel and thyme. When lining a vegetable basket, always choose sheet plastic or polythene to help with water retention - it is essential that vegetable baskets do not dry out. Also, vegetables and herbs do need more space than bedding plants, for example you would only need 3 trailing tomato plants per 35cm (14 inch) basket or container. Bush cucumbers become quite large so 1 plant per basket or container would be sufficient. Position your basket or container in a sheltered, sunnysite, although some herbs and cucumbers will appreciate some shade.

Ideal Trailers Petunia Petunias are easy to grow and provide a long-lasting colour display of strong plants that are perfect for containers, beds, baskets, and pouches. The type called Surfinia are very popular. Trailing Surfinia Mixed gives the longest trailing stems, providing a mass of flowers in a cascade of colour; reaching about 90cms.

28th June - 4th July 2013

Sweet Pea Sweet peas just have the most gorgeous aroma. They work on the basis the more flowers you cut then the more you get. They make pretty cottage flower plants. Sweet Pea Snoopea is highly scented, it’s neat and compact, it’s bushy nature and superb cover make it ideal for baskets. This versatile variety is equally useful for basket, containers and window boxes. Height and spread: 30cm (12”).

Verbena Is an easy to grow annual, evenly spread buds open to reveal clusters of salmon-orange flowers that individually fade through apricot to creamy yellow. This RHS AGM variety is an excellent performer flowering over a long period throughout summer, regardless of the weather! The trailing stems of Verbena Peaches and Cream make this the perfect choice for filling gaps in hanging baskets, window boxes and containers. Height and spread: 30cm (12”).

DIY - it's an SOS!

By Carl from Robot

I RECENTLY had a regular client in the salon who had booked with me to have her roots touched up, as usual.

She is a good customer and trusts what advice I give her because she has difficult hair to colour. When talking to a friend of hers about her colour and how good it looked, her friend remarked on the price she paid to have her hair always so well done. Her friend also commented that she thought it was much cheaper to “do” the colour at home because the results were, in her opinion, just as professional. Erm, well I’ve seen the friend’s hair and, as I was looking at it, I thought it needed changing as it

Page 40

had a “khaki” tinge to it - as often happens with home hair colours over white hair. This example is one of many I can use to convey that, as with all professions, there’s a home kit available to try to achieve a good result, or there’s the salon visit which, in my opinion, gives a much better result. Okay, not all hair colours turn out bad, and I’m not saying that home hair colorants are poor quality. It’s just that you don’t have the advice of a stylist when you’re choosing or applying these products. We all have a choice at the end of the day, and I don’t stand at the door of my salon with a gun, forcing people in. It’s a question of what values you hold over your image. It’s not right or wrong to use these products at home. There again,

it’s not right to make a comparison over you bunging a colour on at home and hoping for the best, and we as stylists and salon owners trying to make a living. You can pop into your local supermarket and buy a frozen pizza. It’s not the same as those you eat in a restaurant, but it’s still a pizza! We all have choices, not in only this aspect of life but in all of the things we do and buy. If someone chooses to holiday in the Bahamas but you prefer Skegness, then it’s that person’s choice. It doesn’t mean the person’s getting ripped off but just that the holiday is totally different from yours. So if you’re applying products at home, then that’s fine. Just be respectful of the ones who choose not to and would prefer their colours done in a professional salon environment.

An incredible garage device that can spot cancer in 10 minutes

A BRITISH scientist has built what he believes to be a cheap, simple device to detect cancer - and just about any disease - in 10 minutes.

The £500 machine, built by Jonathan O’Halloran at his Uckfield home in his East Sussex, has struck a chord with the National Health Service. So much so that it is undergoing rigorous clinical trials and could be used across the NHS as early as next year, revolutionising the treatment administered. The hand-held gadget can micro-analyse tumours and infectious disease at lightning speed, allowing doctors to make a diagnosis almost immediately. The iPhone-sized QPOC machine can also analyse the genetic signatures of the disease before advising on the best type of drugs to use. It was made by 37-yearold Mr O’Halloran in

his garage and is being funded by business partners Elaine Warburton and her husband. The first prototypes are in advanced trials and experts say they have the potential to prolong the lives of 12.7m newly-diagnosed cancer sufferers - and save the lives of millions with infectious diseases. Mr O’Halloran’s hunger for science began when he was a pupil at the Old Grammar School in Lewes, East Sussex. He said proudly: “We are using the device to extract, amplify and analyse DNA from tumours, or other samples, to make sure the patient gets a personalised service as soon as possible. “Science is my life’s passion but, when I was experimenting in my garage, I never dreamed we would get to the stage where we could have a diagnosis in 10 minutes. It’s incredible. “We see this machine working alongside histopathologists and clinical oncologists to provide the missing link: a

personalised service for cancer sufferers.” He added: “Science is my life’s passion, but when I was experimenting in my garage I never dreamed we would get to a stage where we could have a diagnosis in 10 minutes. “It will also provide rapid diagnosis for TB, malaria, HIV and STIs, giving doctors key information on which drugs will treat the disease. “The idea now is to make these devices available to doctors and health professionals.” The Q-POC analyses sub-microscopic amounts of human tissue to diagnose a disease or cancer rapidly by its genetic make-up, and how far it has progressed or spread. Using his Uckfield garage as a makeshift laboratory, Mr O’Halloran hit on the groundbreaking idea of releasing DNA within a barely-visible sample, and making multiple copies to allow an accurate diagnosis on whether cancer mutations exist, and which oncology drugs will work best. The invention is being developed by British company QuantuMDx Group in partnership with Newcastle University. Experts believe it has the potential to save billions of pounds now wasted on primary health care costs and wrongly-prescribed medicines. A Department for Health spokesman said: “Detecting cancer early is vitally important. We welcome the development of any new and innovative technology, which could potentially help save lives.”

Don’t take it with a pinch of salt – and stay healthy! By Val Sainsbury D O C T O R S believe that cutting down salt by just one pinch of salt a day can save the lives of thousands of people with high blood pressure.

You have only to sit in a café in any country to see how adults and children alike literally smother their food with salt. Yet cutting salt out of your meal improves the flavour of the very food you’re trying to enhance. This health risk is why millions of Britons are being warned to eat less salt, or face potentially-fatal health problems. Doctors say that one pinch less per day really can reduce risks significantly. They

recommend checking ingredients, especially in bread, and avoiding adding extra salt while cooking or at the table. With an estimated 16 million Britons suffering from the

28th June - 4th July 2013

“silent killer”, experts have called for more action to tackle the dangers of excessive salt. The average Briton eats around eight grams of salt a day,

which is one-third over the six-gram limit recommended by the Government. Professor Graham MacGregor, chairman of Consensus Action on Salt and Health, said: “Just cutting down by one gram - around a fifth of a teaspoon - can have a significant effect on blood pressure. “Salt is a major contributor to high blood pressure, and cutting down reduces the risk of strokes and heart attacks associated with it. Making very small changes can potentially be life-saving.” Prof MacGregor said one of the biggest problems was “hidden salt” in pre-packaged and restaurant foods. He added: “The

biggest offender is bread, which can have very high amounts of salt which you just don’t notice. “Always check for hidden salt in foods, and gradually reduce how much you add or cook with.” According to Blood Pressure UK high blood pressure triggers around 62,000 deaths from stroke and heart attacks a year, Katharine Jenner, the charity’s nutritionist and chief executive, said cutting down salt by just one pinch a day can reduce the risk of stroke by 5%, and the risk of heart attack by 3%. And she stressed: “If everybody in Britain followed the advice, it would save 6,000 lives

a year.” Ms Jenner added: “Britain still eats far too much salt, and cutting down drastically can, literally, be life-saving. “It means making small reductions. When you cook something, don’t add salt, you will soon get used to it.” Ms Jenner said: “Hidden salt in food is like passive smoking. Manufacturers have made reductions, but salt in prepared foods is still too high.” Experts have long maintained that salt is a major contributor to blood pressure problems, which can lead to heart disease, heart failure, stroke and kidney disease. But high blood pressure rarely has any symptoms, and around a third of people with the condition do not even know they have it. The only way to spot it is by regular testing. Research suggests only one in three sufferers has the r condition adequately under control. Clare Farrand, of World Action on Salt and Health, said: “We are all eating too much salt, which is damaging our health. “Salt reduction is one of the single most-costeffective public health interventions, and so we are working to encourage all countries to take action now.” American research claims at least 2.3 million heart-related deaths around the world were caused by excess salt in 2010, which was 15% of the total. One million of the victims were under 70. The study by Harvard Medical School, which was published in March, showed that men were most likely to die from salt-related heart conditions. Harley Street consultant physician Dr Malcolm Vandenburg said: “I advise all my patients not to eat processed foods as they are packed full of it, and it can lead to an increased risk of heart failure, renal failure, heart disease and stroke.”

Making merry with berries and cherries AS we move into July, the season’s fruits - blackcurrants, strawberries and cherries - come into their own.

Recipes are really wholesome, simple and, above all, tasty, so why not try one or two? Berry crumble traybake This easy-layered traybake is inspired by American coffee cakes, which don’t actually contain any coffee, but are meant to be eaten with your morning cuppa. If you were really pushed for time, you could use a good-quality soft jam for the filling, but it will be much sweeter. Ingredients (for the berry filling) 200g/7oz frozen berries (raspberries, blackberries, cherries, blueberries, blackcurrants all work well, or a mix) 50g/2oz caster sugar 2 tbsp cornflour For the crumble topping 110g/4oz plain flour 70g/2½oz cold unsalted butter, cut into smallish cubes 30g/1oz caster sugar For the cake 220g/8oz plain flour ¾ tsp baking powder ½ tsp cinnamon 50g/2oz ground almonds 200g/7oz caster sugar 80g/3oz butter, melted 2 free-range eggs 40g/1½oz yoghurt thinned with 2 tbsp milk Preparation method

Page 42

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease and line a rectangular baking tin (approximately 26cm x 20cm/10½in x 8in). In a saucepan, combine the fruit with 50ml/2fl oz water. Bring the fruit just to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes. In a mixing bowl, combine the caster sugar with the cornflour. Stir into the fruit and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and jammy. Set aside to cool. For the crumble topping, add the flour to a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until

the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs and no large lumps of butter are left. Stir in the sugar and set aside. For the cake, in a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir in the ground almonds until thoroughly combined. In another bowl, beat together the sugar with the melted butter, eggs, yoghurt and milk mixture until thoroughly mixed. Stir into the flour mixture just to combine. Don’t overmix it, but watch out for big lumps of unmixed flour. Spoon two-thirds of the mixture into the lined tin, gently

spreading out evenly to the corners. Spoon the cooled fruit mixture evenly over the top. Using a teaspoon, dot the remaining cake batter evenly on top of the fruit. This will not cover the entire cake, but make little hillocks with gaps in between. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the top, filling in all the gaps to cover the fruit. Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes, until the crumble topping is golden-brown. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then transfer the cake in its paper to a cooling rack. This is cake is beautiful eaten while still warm, with a

dollop of crème fraîche or yoghurt. But it is equally nice the next day with a cup of coffee. Summer pudding Veg Save room for a seasonal finale with this Valentine Warner recipe. Ingredients 400g/14oz fresh raspberries 800g/1¾lb fresh strawberries, hulls removed, cut in half 600g/1lb 5oz fresh blackcurrants or redcurrants 300g/10½oz caster sugar ½ lemon, juice only 150ml/5fl oz white wine 300ml/10½fl oz water 12 slices thick-cut white bread, crusts removed

Fresh Jersey double cream, to serve (optional) Preparation method Bring half of the fruit and all of the sugar, lemon juice, wine and water to a simmer in a pan. Continue to simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring regularly, until the berries have softened and the sugar has dissolved. Transfer the cooked fruit to a sieve, using a slotted spoon, and strain any liquid back into the pan. Set the drained fruit aside. Bring the fruit juice mixture to the boil and cook for 20-25 minutes, or until the volume of liquid has reduced to a syrup. Strain the syrup mixture into a clean pan, reserving 200ml/7fl oz of the strained syrup in a separate bowl. Return the cooked fruit to the pan containing the fruit syrup. Set aside to cool. When the syrup and cooked fruit are completely cool, add the remaining (uncooked) fruit and stir well to combine. Line a 1.8-litre/3-pint pudding basin with 2 large sheets of cling-film (the edges of the clingfilm should hang over the top of the basin so that they can be used to cover the base of the pudding). Cut 10 of the bread slices into two equal-sized rectangles. Thoroughly paint one side of each bread rectangle with the reserved 200ml/7fl

For the sauce, place the strawberries and lemon juice into a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the sugar to taste. Pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl. To serve Carefully cut each piece of pastry in half through the middle to make two thin pieces. Place one piece in the centre of each plate and top with some of the cream mixture. Lay some of the sliced strawberries on top of the cream, then top with a second piece of pastry. Repeat the process with the remaining cream and strawberries and top each with the final glazed piece of pastry. Dust with icing sugar and spoon over the strawberry sauce.

Recipe of the week Ivan Gonzalez Padilla is the Head Chef at Restaurant Jardín, Avenida de Ayyo s/n Costa Adeje Campo de Golf, Tenerife. Ivan lives locally in Arona and when he’s at home takes his fair turn at the household chores. His favourite dish to cook in his own kitchen is creamy rice, served with lobster, but he told Canarian Weekly, “Overall meat based dishes are my preference.” This week he’s sharing with us his own recipe for Sea bass with sautéed onion, wild asparagus, Canarian potatoes and fresh coriander mojo. This seasonal recipe is on the restaurant’s current menu. He said, “This recipe is gorgeous due to the high quality of fresh local fish with an excellent taste and texture, combined with locally grown vegetables that create a perfect combination.” Sea Bass, sautéed onion, wild asparagus, Canarian potatoes and fresh coriander mojo Ingredients: 190 gr. of fresh Sea Bass 3 wild asparagus 2 Canarian Potatoes 3 tender garlic shoots (ask for ajetes tiernos) 2 table spoons of coarse salt For the sautéed onions ¼ of a small onion ¼ of a red and a Green

pepper 1 clove of garlic Salt A pinch of ground cumin 50 ml of White wine 1 bay leaf For the coriander mojo A few sprigs of coriander 2 cloves of garlic ¼ of a green pepper 100ml of good quality olive oil 0.4 degree 25ml of vinegar ½ small teaspoon of cumin Coarse salt Preparation: The vegetables: Blanch the asparagus previously peeled and the garlic shoots, let them cool in water and ice and put to one side. Cook the potatoes in water and coarse salt for 25 minutes, drain and dry lightly over the heat of the cooker. The sautéed onions: chop the onion and the peppers in very fine long strips, in a frying pan start to fry the finely sliced garlic, add the vegetables and the bay leaf Lower the heat and sauté for about 10 minutes, add the cumin and white wine,

let the ingredients reduce and add salt to taste The mojo: Add all ingredients described for the sauce in a bowl and blend in a blender until a smooth sauce is acquired The Sea Bass: cook the fish, skin side down over a high heat on a griddle or in a frying pan or pan until the skin it golden brown, remove from the heat and put in a preheated oven at 190 degrees for 8 minutes Serving: place the garlic shoots on the plate and arrange the asparagus on top of this. Place the sea bass, skin side down on top of the asparagus and cover with a spoonful of sautéed onions. Quarter the potatoes and arrange at the sides, finally drizzle the cilantro mojo to taste. To accompany the dish Ivan recommends a starter of stuffed Zucchini/courgette with tomato sauce, goat’s cheese and basil. And for dessert try a refreshing Carpaccio of mango, coconut, passion fruit and zingy lime ice cream. Wine lovers would appreciate a crisp white wine – try an easy drinking Verdejo to really enhance the flavours of the food. Reservations 922 711294. www.restaurante-jardin.com

Are these the ugliest cars?

THEY are the vehicles that take your breath away - but for all the wrong reasons, according to motoring journalist Rob Griffin.

He picks out six of what he considers to be the ugliest cars ever made, but will you agree with him? His choice will surely provoke a lively debate among you, but Rob agrees that there’s no shortage of candidates when it comes to awfullooking cars. And here, in his opinion, are six monstrosities that should have never left the designer’s sketchpad, let alone made it to the assembly line. I’m sure some of you will have your own contenders for the Ugly Bug Ball. If so, do let me know and I’ll happily print them. Fiat Multipla WHERE does one begin with this hideous offering from Fiat? It’s as if the company asked different people to design the top and bottom halves - and then glued them together. This bizarre-lookingMultipla has been on our roads since the late Nineties. And it was

actually named Top Gear’s Car of the Year in 2000 for its “mad, ingenious and unquestionably brave styling”. The six-seater Multipla is certainly roomy, with more than enough space for plenty of luggage as well.  In fact, you wouldn’t have much trouble using it to host a gathering of friends. The problem, as I see it, would be persuading them to be seen in it! Citroen 2CV THERE may be a lot of affection in the world for the French 2CV, but it remains a fact of life that it’s still one of the most ungainly creations ever seen. Okay, this picture is of a pre-war prototype, but its unique, sit-up-

28th June - 4th July 2013

and-beg looks hadn’t changed much by the time it went into production. The 2CV was conceived by Citroen as a budget car in the late Forties, which was designed to move the French peasantry on from horses and carts. It proved hugely popular, remaining in production for more than 40 years. And the later models can still be seen chugging around, even here on the Island. Nissan Cube TODDLERS in nursery schools everywhere have probably drawn similar cars to this Nissan’s Cube. With all the design attributes of a cardboard box on wheels, the only positive quality is that

it’s practical. The first generation version of this mini MPV (multiple person vehicle), which arrived on the scene in the late Nineties, is probably the ugliest. But even more recent incarnations, such as this one pictured are not much of an improvement. It possess the kind of styling which can best be referred to as “quirky”, and it can certainly lay claim to being a head turner, but probably not for the right reasons. Porsche Cayenne THIS Cayenne is living proof that sports cars and SUVs (sport utility vehicles) shouldn’t always be combined. It is reminiscent of those monster trucks in which “normal” vehicles are perched on top of giant tractor tyres and then used to crush cars. Since its launch a decade ago, the four-wheel drive Cayenne has received plaudits for both its handling and performance - as you would expect considering its motoring heritage. But neither factor detracts from the fact that it looks decidedly odd. Ford Ka THE Ka was introduced back in the mid-Nineties as a lowcost addition to the Ford range. And the Ka’s oddball styling provoked a mixed reaction, which was quite understandable. Despite being one of

the best-selling vehicles in its class in the UK, it has never been in any danger of winning awards for its beauty. Thankfully, the more recent incarnations of the Ka are slightly more aesthetically bearable. Nissan Juke DESPITE naming two in my list, I have nothing against  Nissan cars. In fact, the 370Z is one of my favourites, but the Juke is the dictionary definition of ugly. It is bulbous in all the wrong places. The lumps over the wheelarches look as though they were inspired by

the shape created by squeezing a deflating balloon tightly. It’s simply awful. Nissan’s marketing describes the small crossover as having the “street-tough power of an SUV and the dynamic style and energy of a sporty hatchback”. That may be the intention, and you can’t argue that the Juke is different. But if it were a Hollywood actor, its looks would be referred to as “unique” or “rugged” rather than classically handsome.

The big names tumble By Roscoe Last Tuesday over 60 players battled it out for a place at Finals night and once again there were plenty of shocks.

The Tenerife Pool Tables singles tournament in the Oasis Fm Pool League has always thrown up surprises and once again some fancied players fell by the wayside. In fact only four of the tables winners are ranked in the top 30 of the division one standings! Despite having what looked a comfortable draw top ranked player Jambo was dumped out in the semi finals at Inn The Pink. The Peacocks team have had a fine first season in the top flight and they filled both the qualifying spots. Craig defeated Stu in the final to automatically make the last 8 on finals night. Stu will join the other 5 runners up in a one frame shoot out to determine the last two players to make the final event. While Jambo was licking his wounds, another couple of top sticks were doing the same at the Terrace Bar in Puerto Colon. This table, which hosts the Peacocks, had some top players from division two as well as some the best in div one and was seen as the table of death. Adi from Palms A was an early casualty and he was joined by the lads from Exiles Bar who couldn’t capture the form that saw them win the division two title. In the semi final Ashley and Penguin squared off in a heavyweight battle. Ashley has famously never lifted a winners trophy in the Oasis Fm Pool League but he took a major stride towards correcting that as he proved to strong for the Fish Muncher. His reward was a final with dark horse John from Inn The Pink. He has finished the season like a

Page 52

in pool singles event train, and while he went down to Ashley nobody will fancy meeting him in the runners up shoot out. Ten players chalked it up in the Phoenix Bar with some interesting preliminary matches. In the opener Geoff the Guvnor was too strong for Ricky from La Cana in an Abrigos derby and he was joined in the last eight by Hammers C Paul who needed all three frames to get past Exiles’ Shammy. In the quarter finals Pete from Palms A had no problem in swotting aside Nick from TPT,

breezed past Graham in the semi finals and met Sergio who snuck past Pete 2-1. Harry started to find his groove and was never in danger, winning 3-0 to send Sergio into Tuesday’s shoot out. Just around the corner in Amarilla Golf there was no obvious favourite at the Terrace Bar. Arguably Phoenix’s Bubbles might have been the front runner after his fine performance in the cup final the previous week. He opened the night with a smooth win over team mate Dave H,

Tony holding his nerve as Mal suffered the squeaky bum nerves. The final should have been a barnstormer but it never really caught fire. A rash shot saw Tony lose the opener and from there he never caught up. Dave finished the job off to seal a massive upset. He will be a dark horse on finals night. There was a great atmosphere and some tight matches at Exiles Bar. It was nearly midnight before a winner was found. The opening contest saw James Place’s James

value for the first frame lead, but encountered a different player after the pizza break. James does well in these events and he took a nervy second frame before Richie regrouped and got home 2-1. The last quarter final saw Exiles jefe Blair against the league chairman Roscoe. Again it wasn’t the tidiest of frames but the Palms A stalwart took the opener and then seven balled Blair in the second. The first semi final was a water tight affair. At times both James and Richie looked like

whose son Harley did much better. He gave Graham from Palms A all the trouble in the world before the balding Yorkshire man got home. Just! Paul’s reward for beating Shammy was a tough match up with Sergio but the Spaniard from La Cana came through in the decider. The final last eight match was a thriller and there was more than just pride at stake. Geoff took the opener against Harry from the Phoenix Knights and had a shot at the black to take the second frame. But the Phoenix Potter missed, let Harry square matters and was then unscrewing his cue as H took the next frame. That was as tough as it got for Harry. He

before Mal did his fellow Terrace A’er Sparky 2-0. Dave was flying the flag for division two and he made a good start in beating Ken from Tenerife Hammers C while Ken’s son Tony won the third frame to knock out home table Adi. It’s amazing what a difference seven days can make. Last week Bubbles was unplayable as he tasted Cup success, but it was the bitter taste of disappointment on Tuesday as Dave shocked him in the semis 2-1. In the other match Mal’s fragile temperament under pressure cost him dearly. He lost the opener to Tony and once again he failed to see the job through.

record a comfortable win over Gary. The Gaffers man was strangely out of sorts and didn’t produce his usual form. This was followed by an all Palms affair as owner and B team player Shai crossed swords with the A team’s JT. The opening frame was scrappy with neither player getting to grips with the fast table. Shai took the opening rubber only for JT to wake up and level the score after Shai wasted some half chances. The third frame was one way traffic. JT was amongst the balls early on and never gave his opponent a chance. Match three was a classic. Palms B’s Richie is a fine player and he flew out of the traps against Gaffers James. He was good

getting away from the other, only to be pegged back. Pots were at a premium as Richie looked to tie James up. It worked in the whole, but James just about did enough and booked his final place in the third frame. This left the battle of the team mates to face him and bragging rights between too great pals. Let’s just say that JT made a few rookie errors and Roscoe’s 2-0 winning scoreline was fair! The final was a classic. James was like a man possessed. Some clean potting gave him the opener and then the second as Roscoe snatched at chances. But he looked good for pulling one back

only for James to pull off an 8 ball clearance. Unfortunately for James he also potted the white and when a wonder shot on the black gave Roscoe the fourth frame it was game on. Again James seemed in control but a poor safety let his opponent in. He kept his nerve to sink the black and make finals night for a third time. But on this form James would be a favourite to win the runners up shoot out. The final table at Gaffers saw some more upsets. Little did they know but the winners of the preliminary round would contest the final three hours later. Inn The Pink’s Ricky opened up with a tight three frame win over Kyle from Exiles, while Hammers A’s Wez had his problem’s in getting past ITP’s Terry. The 2-0 scoreline doesn’t tell the tale. Gaffers boss Neil played what he described as: “The worst pool of my life” as he struggled to get past Les 2-0 from Phoenix Potters. His form would not improve. Tenerife Hammers C’s Bobby Baker had a short night. He went down without wining a frame to young Ryan while Phoenix’s Eric lost the same way to ITP’s Ricky. Wez improved slightly as he accounted for Leon from Exiles. In the semi’s Neil was put out of his misery by Ricky before the battle of the Fritzel kids saw Wez whitewash his younger brother, despite a game effort from Ryan. The final was one sided and Wez was always going to win. It sees a rare finals appearance from him while if he starts fast Ricky could be another ITP danger. The singles final and Presentation night is this Tuesday at Palms Bar in Torviscas. The action gets underway at 1930 and everyone is welcome.

Palms Boss The Gaffers!

Palms Sports Bar totally dominated Division 1 last season, and after being promoted, it looks like they really want to mix it with the big boys.

The Pub also won every game and are now second after an impressive victory at Ourplace Playboys. Phoenix Bar inflicted a first defeat of the campaign on Target Army, with Mitch (pictured) hitting his second maximum and a 110 checkout. Also on the 180 trail was Alan of Vikings Ensecan as he hit his first during a 2-6 home defeat at the hands of Target Titans. La Caña Pirates enjoyed a fun night with Scruffy Macs in a match which had three 91 checkouts

Bigger tests lie ahead, but last Friday's match with Gaffers A saw them win by a whitewash. Indeed, they didn't drop a single leg. There promises to be some real fireworks in the next few weeks! PRemier division ResultS

WHILE number 2 seed Andy Murray sails on towards his inevitable appointment with destiny in the Wimbledon final, Laura Robson has been carving out her own niche in SW19.

Murray skipped through his two opening rounds without dropping a set, and saw his half of the draw open up for him with the shock departures of chief rivals Raphael Nadal and Roger Federer with just three days of the

hammering of Gaffers B suggest that it might be. It also suggest that Gaffers had quite a bad week! Up at Amistad 1, Trap Door put in a fine performance to come away with a 7-1 success. Barney took out 109 for Amistad but Laura, apparently, had a real off night. Blaming it all on the 2 half shandies she had earlier on. (yeah right!). While Rood sit 5 points clear at the top, the chasing pack seem intent on taking points off each other. Evi-

dence of this came at Bar 180, as the B string beat Chipeque 5-3. Bar 180 C and Barracuda Bytes played out a very tight match in which the Bytes took the trebles to tie the score at 4-4, while Marilyns also left it to the final rubber to claim a draw at Summerlands. Tenerife Sun's 6-2 win at the Hunters sees them continue to surge ahead in Division 2 and gives them an 8 point lead. Emerald Shamrocks first season is still looking good after they beat La Caña lancers,

while Bar 180 D are up to third courtesy of a 5-3 victory at Ourplace Playgirls. Sundowners slipped down a bit due to their shock home defeat at the hands of Pas O Nadas. Picassos steeled themselves in the last game of the night to square the match with Amistad 2, while a close local derby at Phoenix Flames ended with defeat at the hands of The Rebels.

Laura and Murray light up Wimbledon Championship gone. Meanwhile, Britain’s No2-ranked Laura saw off No10 seed Maria Kirilenko 6-3, 6-4 on Monday’s opening day. And while Britain’s other ladies fell by the wayside, Laura added another scalp to her collection on Tuesday when she won the first round of her doubles match with partner Lisa Raymond in two sets. Yesterday (Thursday), the teenager was in action again in a secondround singles encounter against qualifier Mariana Duque-Marino.

28th June - 4th July 2013

No fewer than seven players were forced to withdraw from the glittering event through injury on Woeful Wednesday. Two didn’t even set foot on court, while others were slipsliding all over the place. Former Wimbledon champion, Russian Maria Sharapova, after receiving treatment for a third fall, appeared to mouth to the umpire: “This court is dangerous.” The world No3 lost 6-3, 6-4 against Portugal’s unseeded Michelle Larcher de Brito, but it

was far from the biggest shock of the day. That came with the downfall of seven-time Wimbledon champion Federer, who was beaten in four sets by Ukranian Sergio Stakhiovsky, ranked 113 places lower than the world No3. It was an even bigger upset than Nadal’s defeat on the opening day by outsider Steve Darcis, who gave his intended second-round opponent a walk-over after failing to overcome a shoulder injury. But Murray seems untouchable these days,

in the wake of his US Open victory last year, followed by his defeat of Federer in the Olympic final on the Centre Court last summer. He won another three-setter, this time against Yen-Hsun Lu,

and bookmakers were already quoting oddson prices for a MurrayNovak Djokovic final, even before Serbia’s world No1 had faced American Bobby Reynolds in yesterday’s second round.

Sport In Brief Froome is Tour favourite

Britain’s Chris Froome goes for Tour de France glory this weekend as the world famous race celebrates its centenary. The Tour starts in Corsica (Saturday) and Froome has warned some riders’ chances of victory could be lost in the opening days. The 100th edition of the Tour will begin with three road stages on the Mediterranean island, with one flat and two hilly days providing an unusually testing start to the race. “Corsica is going to be a tough one,” he said, “Typically at the Tour de France, those first few days are really stressful in the peloton anyway. Everyone is fighting for position and trying to stay at the front, and especially on windy Corsican roads, it is going to be a battle.”

Webber's long goodbye

Mark Webber will leave Red Bull and Formula 1 at the end of the season to join Porsche. His future at Red Bull had been the subject of much speculation after a public falling out with team-mate Sebastian Vettel. “It’s an honour for me to join Porsche, I’m very much looking forward to this new challenge after my time in Formula 1. Porsche will undoubtedly set itself very high goals. I can hardly wait to pilot one of the fastest sports cars in the world.” Speculation is rife as to who will now replace the 36-year-old at Red Bull. Kimi Raikkonen is the bookies early favourite to partner Vettel. The Finn, currently at Lotus, is a free agent at the end of the season. Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo are also in the frame, as is British driver Paul di Resta.

Lions shuffle pack British and Irish Lions' head coach Warren Gatland has made five changes for tomorrows (Saturday) second Test against Australia in Melbourne. Mike Phillips has paid the price for a poor first Test performance and the Wales scrum-half is replaced in the starting team by Ben Youngs. England lock Geoff Parling had already been confirmed as a starter after Paul O’Connell was ruled out for the rest of the tour, while England’s Mako Vunipola has got the nod at loose-head after Alex Corbisiero failed to recover from a calf problem. Tommy Bowe and Dan Lydiate have also come into the side. Bowe, who has fully recovered from a broken hand, replaces Alex Cuthbert on the wing while Lydiate takes the place of Tom Croft on the blindside flank.

Clueless Shearer

JOE KINNEAR, Newcastle’s newly-appointed director of football, has hit back at the club’s record goalscorer Alan Shearer, claiming: “This is a guy who doesn’t have a clue about coaching.” Shearer, who scored 206 goals in 404 games for the Magpies, said the appointment of Kinnear had “undermined” manager Alan Pardew and said recent events at St James’ Park had turned the club into a “laughing stock”.

Ins, Outs & Returns CD Tenerife are now on their summer break but while the players might be away from the training pitch until mid-July, it's all go in the head office.

Director of football Quique Medina has been busy as he restructures the squad for life in Segunda Division. All fans knew there would be some major changes and it's been a little hard to keep up. Rumours, hints and allegations as the song goes. But as we went to print this is where we stand: STAYING: Sergio Aragoneses, Roberto, Javi Moyano, Bruno, Rigo, Alberto, Llorente, Inigo Ros, Yeray, Chechu, Suso, Sandro, Cristo Martin, Luismi, Abel, Gullem Marti & Ayoze Perez. LEAVING: Sergio Rodriguez, Tarantino, Amado, Ayoze Placeres, Jesus, David Medina, Ochoa, Carlos Portero, Nico & German.

UP IN THE AIR: Aridane. NEWBIES: Raul Camara. POSSIBLES: Brimah Razak, Oscar Rico, Manolo Martinez, Jesus Berrocal, Manuel Bonaque & Kiko Olivas. There are not too many surprises, although young left-back Jesus is certainly a little unlucky to have been released. Tarantino, Medina and Nico are all technically under contract but will be given free transfers. Llorente and Cristo Martin took a bit of negotiation. Cristo ended up with the two year deal he craved, albeit without the massive pay rise, while Llorente had to settled for one year, with the option of another 12 months after that. The main issues is top scorer Aridane. He is out of contract today (Friday) and is surely on his way. La Liga's Osasuna have been very interested, as have relegated Mallorca, now coached by former CDT boss Jose Luis Oltra, and Deportivo La Coruna. And Aridane has spoken of his desire to play

at a higher level. Raul Camara is the first of what will be around a dozen signings. He is a solid if unspectacular signing. He can play right or left back and has a wealth of experience at this level with Sporting Gijon, Recreativo and recently at Xerez. His spell at the latter was a disaster but he is still young enough at 29 to bounce back. Cartagena midfielder Oscar Rico is close to joining. He is a well drilled box to box midfielder who has an eye for goal He's just what CDT are missing. And there could be a couple of old boys returning. I have nothing but admiration for Razak Brimah. He is a lovely bloke and he did CDT a massive favour when he voluntarily terminated his contract last season. He then had a fine season at Guadalajara who were only relegated for financial reasons. Medina has admitted he wants an experienced back up keeper to Aragoneses. Razak still has family in Santa Cruz and a return looks likely. Finally, a big surprise!

Former CDT captain Manolo Martinez (pictured) could make a sensational return. He is big pals with manager Alvaro Cervera and Quique Medina. He is working on a release from Recreativo and said on Tuesday: “I want to go to Tenerife. The seasons I spent in Tenerife were great. Both the fans and the club were very happy with me. Medina, Cervera who I worked with at Recreativo know me very well.” He played 111 games for Tenerife and was a hard, tough tackling midfielder or centre back. He could be joined in Santa Cruz by fellow Recreativo assets striker Jeus Berrocal and defender Manuel Bonaque.

Ancelotti is the new Real deal CARLO ANCELOTTI, a vital cog in football’s ever-turning merry-go-round, has been confirmed as Real Madrid’s new manager after weeks of speculation.

The Italian, who agreed a three-year contract at the Bernabéu, replaces Jose Mourinho, the self-styled “Special One”, who never really cracked it at Real, despite winning the 2012 La Liga title. Mourinho, who steered Chelsea to two Premier League titles and other silverware, returns for a second spell at Stamford Bridge, where Ancelotti won the Premier League and FA Cup in 2010. The 54-year-old guided French club Paris SaintGermain to the Ligue 1 title last season and to the quarter-finals of the

Champions League, in which they were eliminated by Barcelona. But he asked to leave after being approached by Real After Mourinho’s obvious discomfort at Real, Ancelotti and his impressive track record will be welcomed at the Bernabéu with open arms. His portfolio reads: AC Milan - Coppa Italia 2003; Champions League 2003, 2007; UEFA Super Cup 2003, 2007; Serie A 2004; Supercoppa Italiana 2004; FIFA Club World Cup 2007; Chelsea - Community Shield 2009; Premier League 2010; FA Cup 2010; Paris St-German - Ligue 1 2013

Ancelotti was appointed manager of the French club in December 2011, but the lure of Real Madrid was simply too strong for him to reject. The former Italy international midfielder played for Parma, Roma and AC Milan before starting his managerial career with Reggiana. He went on to take charge of Parma, Juventus, Milan - where he won the Champions League in 2003 and 2007 - as well as Chelsea, prior to joining PSG. Ancelotti has now won league titles in England, France and Italy, and Real Madrid are praying he will somehow lift them above Spanish champions Barcelona, as well as deliver their first Champions League crown since 2002. Frenchman Laurent Blanc, 47, who replaces Ancelotti at Paris StGermain, has agreed a two-year contract at the Parc des Princes.

The French club appeared to want a replacement for Ancelotti before letting him go and were “delighted” at Blanc’s appointment, despite French media claiming he was not the first choice. Blanc played for Montpellier, Auxerre, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United among other clubs during his playing career, and the former central defender was also a member of the French side who won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. As a manager, he led Bordeaux to the 2009 French league title before having a stint in charge of his country’s national team from 2010-2012. He will now assume control of a PSG outfit who have become one of European football’s major threats since being taken over by Qatar Sports Investments in August 2011.

The silly season is upon us again

If you are a football fan like me, you will probably being going stir crazy at the minute and counting the hours, minutes and seconds down to the start of the new Premier League season on 17th August.

Yes, the Confederation Cup is on at the minute and the U21's and U20's have both had tournaments. But it doesn’t beat the hustle and bustle of the PL, nor does the obligatory pre season tournaments and matches. However a little glimmer amongst these depressing times is the almost daily doses of transfer rumours and gossip, I must admit it can be quite entertaining reading the various press publications and football related websites that have a very good knack of putting two and two together and getting five! There is nothing as exciting as reading that a friend of a journalist, knows a bloke on a bus, who knows a dog walker who goes past Hull City’s training ground every morning, who in turn knows the tea lady, who has told him that Hull are on the verge of signing Lionel Messi.... But at the time of going to print, several clubs have already significantly dipped into the market and tried to get their business done early. None more so than Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool. He has already completed the signing of Kolo Toure on a free from Manchester City, goalie Simon Mignolet from Sunderland and picked up two Spanish players in Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas. He is still chasing Mkhitaryan from

Shakhtar Donetsk with reports saying he has gone AWOL in a bid to force through the transfer. But I have a feeling this one may drag on. And let’s not forget Luis Suarez is still fluttering his eyelashes at Real Madrid. As a Liverpool fan, I say lets sell him for 40m quid and really strengthen this summer. Also adding spice to this summer’s transfer window is the fact that three out of last season’s top four teams have changed managers. Of course the biggest change is at the champions, Manchester United, with Sir Alex retiring and being replaced with David Moyes. So far the only stories coming out of Old Trafford revolve around Wayne Rooney and where he will play his football next season. He has denied handing in a transfer request but it is known that him and Moyes don’t see eye to eye. Several destinations have been mentioned, including: Paris St Germain, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Chelsea. I do not think Rooney would adapt to overseas

28th June - 4th July 2013

football and if he were to move I think Arsenal or Chelsea would be his choice of club. In terms of signings there has only been one player spoken about and that is Thiago from Barcelona. He could be the transfer of the season, but will Barcelona really let him go? He is young and for a a quality player, still improving. With the Barca side ageing, it would be a great loss to them. Down the King’s Road, Chelsea have welcomed back ‘The Special One’, as Mourinho takes over for his second spell at the helm. He has quickly added German Andre Schurrle to the ranks and is being linked with a big money move for Napoli’s Edinson Cavani, but with a release clause supposedly in the region of 50m euros is he just too expensive? Manchester City have also been linked with Cavani but, according to the Napoli president, they can’t afford him! Manuel Pellegrini has stepped into Roberto Mancini’s shoes at the Etihad and was expected to bring Isco with him from his old club Malaga, but Isco has gone to Real Madrid. City will probably spend

big this summer but they are clearing the decks, with Carlos Tevez having already gone to Juventus, Kolarov expected to follow him to Turin while Barry, Richards and Dzeko are also being linked with moves away. It looks like being a new look City when the season kicks off. Over in north London, Arsenal for once may be about to splash some serious cash. It has been rumoured that Arsene Wenger has money to spend and that they are also prepared to change their wage structure to bring in the right players. And Mr Right is looking like Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. Should they spend the reported 22m on the Argie striker, it would send out a message of intent to the rest of the league, and throw the rumours about Rooney into the mix; the Gunners could have one formidable forward line in place come kick off. Caution is advised though, because this is Arsenal and we all know that Wenger likes a bargain basement buy from the French League. Spurs fans on the other hand have

been watching the press with nervousness, with rumours flying around of Gareth Bale going to Real Madrid. Of course no big club wants to lose their star player but one player doesn’t make a team and if Real want to throw a load of money their way, take it. With the numbers that are being discussed, around the 60m mark, manager AVB could make significant improvements to the team who narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification last season. Several players have been linked with Spurs, most notably Paulinho a very talented Brazilian who looks like he will arrive for a fee of around 15m quid. What is also surprising this year is the clubs lower down the league are also being linked with expensive players. Take Southampton for instance. They surprised everybody last year by signing Gaston Ramirez who was a highly rated youngster, already well established as a Uruguayan international. This year appears to be no different, as they are looking to sign Victor

Wanyama from Celtic. He has been repeatedly linked with Manchester United, with a fee likely to be in the region of 10-12m. This lad is mustard. You also have Premier League new boys Cardiff City, who are reportedly going to pay Blackpool £8m for Thomas Ince. It would certainly be a strong message to those who feel they are going straight back down. The colourful Paulo Di Canio is making room at Sunderland by putting most of the team up for sale, with a view to bringing in new faces and moulding the squad to his liking, while Paul Lambert has been busy at Aston Villa. He has already made five signings as he looks to ensure there is no relegation battle this season. And what of Everton, who are now managed by Roberto Martinez? They are constantly being linked with Wigan players, as normally happens when managers change clubs. However, Stoke City fans will be hoping this is not the case with Mark Hughes raiding Q.P.R. The two clubs you have to feel most sorry for are Hull City and Crystal Palace, both coming into the Premier League but they cannot offer their managers big transfer kitties. So Steve Bruce and Ian Holloway have to take a look at players from the clubs who went down, plus the lower leagues and cheaper overseas talent. It gives them a difficult job in pulling together a squad capable of staying in the Premier League. Whatever happens, we still have a long way to go before the transfer window shuts on 31st August. There will be plenty of comings and goings and as is normal probably a couple of shock moves. It's not as exciting as the actual Premier League but it will have to do for excitement until August rolls around.
