The greatest story ever told will hold you all spellbound

THE Passion of Jesus Christ, heralded as The Great Story Ever Told, will again be re-enacted in Adeje today (Good Friday).

It is the most momentous day in the town’s calendar, and countless thousands of visitors from all over will flock there to witness this incredible drama, which is played out year after year there. As all Christians know, La Pasion, with a cast of hundreds, depicts the last days and death of Jesus of Nazareth. And. as ever, it will be broadcast live in the Canaries on Television Española. The cast will comprise at least 300 amateurs, the vast majority from different parts of the borough, who sign up every year to take part in this colourful, heartrending spectacle For the second year running, The Crucifixion scene will be staged in the Plaza España, creating a panoramic setting for the final, dramatic chapter, with the Plaza, the church, the Convento and the Barranco del Infierno as a backdrop. Adeje Culture Councillor Nayra Medina Bethencourt, who has headed the organising, said: “La

Pasión is a major event for Adeje. “The people of the borough feel they own the event, and they return to it year after year. It is an important, international event something very different, very unique. “As well as the locals taking part, we must also recognise those groups and individuals from other parts of the Island who will be here, from the North, from the Island capital, and the many who come from other towns and villages to play their part.” As for TV España’s live broadcast, Bethencourt said: “It is an amazing showcase to the world.” And wearing her culture - cum-tourist hat, she added “It is an excellent promotional tool and gives added value to the destination - a classic ‘sun and beach’ one. “But events of this quality stand out in the tourism market place and offer the visitor

something different, something more.” This 2014 version of La Pasión will see a number of improvements to some of the stages, costumes and the “Jerusalem market-place” which will have 20 stalls this year, all contributing to creating the incredible atmosphere of the era. Another new addition will be the participation of students from the Municipal School of Music and Dance as Herod’s dancers. The Herod and Pontius Pilate stage has

been redesigned and restructured, while the script of Pontius Pilate and Claudia has been changed and is more intense. The entire Calle Grande, from the Plaza de la Cruz del Llano to the Plaza España, will be a stage dressed to resemble the time of Our Lord, with plants, cloths, sculptures and altars, etc. It is a mind-boggling scene and simply has to be seen to be believed! Music also plays an important part in the event, and all the songs and compositions are originals, incorporating some traditional Canarian musical themes and instruments, along with dances. Security during the event will be provided by a group of Adeje Local Police, members of the Civil Protection Unit and Civil Protection volunteers, as well as the voluntary Adeje Fire Brigade.

Los Cristianos fair gets back on track LAST weekend, the fair in Los Cristianos was closed because of safety concerns. But, remarkably, it has reopened in time for Semana Santa.

Arona’s Local Police who checked on the fairground rides and other attractions in Los Cristianos on Sunday, discovered that the official safety paperwork allowing them to open was incorrect. As a result, the showmen decided, voluntarily, to close their rides and stalls.

However, changes appear to have occurred since then and the right documentation is now in place, enabling the festivities to carry on in time for families to enjoy their Easter celebrations! Showmen at the fairground - situated by the Valdes Centre – planned to open during Easter week, only to find that the paperwork pertaining only to that period had not been submitted. The safety plan had been signed off for Carnaval, and many workers kept their rides erected, hoping to stay open throughout. This week, the site did not have the neces-

sary report, supplied by a municipal engineer from Arona’s Technical Office. And its absence suggested that the rides did not conform to safety standards. A similar incident happened during last year’s Christmas holidays, when the same space was closed by the police for that same reason. According to a police report, some showmen claimed to have had verbal authorisation from two local councillors. But this was obviously not acceptable to the police. However, someone has decided that the show must go on after all.

Adeje and Arona bond to form strong security link THE Councils of Arona and Adeje have pooled their resources in a joint security operation to safeguard their respective municipalities.

The ruling bodies have agreed to work together, following a meeting with a representative from the Canary Islands Government. Adeje Mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, and Antonio Luis Sosa Carballo, the Deputy Mayor of Arona, held a joint press conference to announce details of a major project which involves both councils supporting each other over security issues. They agree that security is paramount for residents and holidaymakers in their areas, which are the main tourist destinations in South Tenerife. Rodriguez Fraga said: “In recent months, we have been part of

a number of working groups looking at coordinating activities to benefit both residents and tourists.” He added that they would be organising a working committee on security, with representatives from both coun-

cils co-ordinating their work along three lines: “Prevention, perception and the reality of the situation.” The two councils have committed themselves to improving communication, informationsharing, better co-or-

dination and use of resources. “We understand that the two boroughs are part of a single holiday zone,” said Rodriguez Fraga. “And if we work along the same lines, we will have a better tourist destination and

improved residential zones.” The first fruits of this work will be seen this Easter weekend, with extra Local Police on the streets during busy periods, particularly where there is an abundance of people.

“We want both those who live here and those who are visiting, to feel safe, at ease,” insisted Rodriguez Fraga. “We know there are always extra issues because this is a holiday destination, but we are looking at solutions to address precisely these problems, improving the situation and adapting to change.” Sosa Carballo also underlined their urgency, stressing: “This is a matter of importance for both boroughs, and we have arrived at a joint decision which will benefit everyone, as well as businesses, in this tourist zone. “Co-ordinated efforts are of vital importance, above all during the high season.” The Mayors listed the problems shared by both boroughs, such as street-sellers, unauthorised beach activities, pickpockets and unlicensed timeshare touts, who all step up their activities during holidays and the summer season.

The hunger for food banks reaching almost 1m people A BRITISH food bank charity has dished out 913,000 food parcels in the last year.

The total was a staggering increase on the 347,000 total in 2012. The Trussell Trust said one-third were given to repeat visitors, but there was also a “shocking” 51% rise in clients to established food banks. The Trust blames benefit payment delays as the main cause but the government says there is no evidence of a link between welfare reforms and the use of food banks. The Trussell Trust, the UK’s largest foodbank provider, insisted that benefits payments had been a particular problem since welfare changes were introduced just over a year ago. Some 83% of food banks reported that benefits’ sanctions when payments are temporarily stopped - resulted in more people being referred for emergency food. And more than 30% of visits were put down to a delay in welfare payments. The second-biggest reason, given by 20% of those who use food banks, was low income. Trussell Trust Chairman Chris Mould said: “In the last year, we’ve seen things get worse, rather than better, for many people on low incomes.” All together, 913,000 people received three days of emergency food supplies in the past 12 months. But more than a third of those cases represented repeat visits, while some of the increase was also down to the opening of extra food banks. Andy, a 47-year-old unemployed electrician, applied for Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA) and still hadn’t heard when the money would come through after waiting a week. In the meantime,

he was referred to a food bank near his Hackney home in north London. “If I didn’t come here, there wouldn’t be any food for me tonight,” he told the BBC. “It’s the system, but I don’t understand why there’s a gap.” Andy was sent away from his local food bank with two shopping bags of pasta, rice, vegetables, biscuits and juice. The clergy from all major dominations, who include Archbishop of Wales Barry Morgan and several senior Church of England bishops, describe the increase in the use of Trussell Trust food banks as “terrible”, in a letter to the government. They insist it does not give a full picture of hunger in the UK because it does not include those people too ashamed to use food banks - and others who are eating less food. The clergy, led by Tim Thornton, Bishop of Truro, called on ministers to cooperate with an inquiry into the causes of hunger. But as a spokeswoman for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), said: “There is no robust evidence that welfare reforms or benefit administration are linked to increased use of food banks.” She also maintained that the time taken to process payments had improved. Churches have led the criticism over the effects of the government’s welfare changes for more than a year. And they are looking for tangible evidence of “hunger” to back up their argument that they affect the poorest people disproportionately. The figures for the use of food banks appear to provide an indication of food poverty, at least, but how far they do is open to debate. The Trussell Trust,

which has adopted a campaigning role as well as providing food banks - says that at least 60% of their three-day parcels are taken by once-only clients. But that leaves some room for repeat visits, as the government has pointed out.

Ministers have also suggested that the publicity surrounding food banks will have pushed people in their direction. But arguments like this have not deflected the clergy. They insist that much of the real extent of hunger is hidden, as

people cut the size of meals and parents go hungry to feed their children. And they are calling for a national debate about the issue, and to make it a moral issue, and the government wants to take part. However, it stresses

that it spends £94bn a year on working-age benefits to provide a safety net for millions of people on low incomes. It also insists that its welfare reforms will promote work, and so lift millions of people out of poverty.

Healthy deal for poor kids THE Canarian Government launched an initiative to combat poverty and social exclusion last year.

It proved such a success that school dining halls will remain open at Easter and Christmas as part of the Language Immersion Project. The scheme will be run by the Education Department and the regional department for Social Policy, aided by the Red Cross. Local Red Cross President Gerardo Mesa highlighted the need, particularly during school holiday time, for adequate nutrition for the Islands’ children. “They have nearly three weeks of holiday time at Christmas, and we are working together to see how we can meet their nutritional needs other then in the summer holidays,” he said. The Ministry for Social Policy, which has

also considered the possibility, has raised its budget by 7% this year to serve “priority” families - those who cannot survive without the support of government or outside agencies. Mesa said the Red Cross had already launched similar projects in the Islands, namely the Breakfast Solidarity Project, which benefits around 2,000 schoolchildren. “We intend to ensure accessibility to families in need, so at least their children can have breakfast,” he added. “We have also offered work-insertion experience to those parents who are at risk of social exclusion, as well as raising awareness of healthy-eating patterns.” The Red Cross already provides breakfast snacks, juice and fruit to a number of schools for families at risk. And in Tenerife, the organisation reaches a dozen schools in six municipalities.

A boom in tourism jobs THE number of new contracts signed within Tenerife’s tourism industry last month stood at 8,514 - a whopping 66.1% increase over last March.

It puts Tenerife at the top of the recruitment list for this March in the Canaries. The data, from the Canary Employment Observatory (Obecan), shows that Tenerife recorded 3,338 more new contracts in that period, against the same time

last year. Gran Canaria had a 1,697 increase, followed by 1,199 in Lanzarote, 458 in La Palma, 197 in Fuerteventura and 34 in La Gomera. El Hierro was the only island to show a drop - a worrying 35%. Tenerife Cabildo President Carlos Alonso was quick to note that the Island’s new contracts added up to the sum of all those achieved in the other islands combined. He said Tenerife’s tourism sector was moving positively and with a “dynamism” which is reducing unemployment on the Island.

Alonso added that the number of new contracts was “fundamental” to the creation of stable employment. Within the tourist sector, contracts in hospitality were up 76.4% on March 2013, while food and beverage service contracts improved by 30.6%. The number of jobless people in Tenerife declined by 5% in the year since March 2013, bringing the total to 115,445 people. And in the tourism sector alone, the jobless decline has continued for four consecutive months.

Sunbed saga is set to end THE long-running Los Cristianos beach sunbed scenario should be resolved next week.

The award for the concession of sunbeds and umbrellas on the beaches of Los Cristianos has entered the final furlong. Arona Council meets on Monday and is set to ratify the joint ven-

ture between Juan Leon Correa and Celandine Leon Correa. They will take charge of the project, which has been in turmoil since the last contract ended last year on 1st July.. The Mayor’s plan will see 300 sunbeds and 150 parasols placed on the beaches with a four-year, renewable contract. The price for renting each item is three euros a day. If

everything is agreed on Monday, the Mayor wants the whole project signed off inside 15 days, with a view to seeing them installed three weeks after that date. Hoteliers and businesses close to the beaches have repeatedly reiterated their protest against the lack of sunbeds which, they claim, has had a detrimental effect on local trade.

Still no launch for hospital’s helipad CANDELARIA Hospital’s helipad, built four years ago, remains out of action after being strangled by red tape!

The editor says...

Email: editor@canarianweekly.com

By George,

A series of administrative procedures and a final inspection have yet to be carried out,

it’s here again! LIKE everyone these days, I’m a bit of a mongrel. My blood is nicely diluted with genes from America, Scotland and, as anyone who has seen me with a pint of Guinness, Ireland from some distant great, great. great grandfather.

But I’m mostly English - and as proud an Englishman as you will come across. I’m a hetrosexual Caucasian male which, in some places, makes me the anti-Christ. That may be true, since I’m an Atheist. Maybe I should have mentioned all that when I took over this job in November. I bring this up in the interest of full disclosure, and to bang the drum for this coming Wednesday. Over the last decade or so, there has been more and more interest in celebrating St George’s Day. I’m not sure what sparked this … maybe the growth of events on Paddy’s Day? I don’t really care how it happened - I’m just delighted it has. Far too often, we are browbeaten for celebrating England and all things English. “Little Englander”

is the slight if we ever bring up our heritage. And at times, it seems as though everyone hates us. It’s probably because of our Empire days. But for one day, we forget all that, and I’m delighted that our great community has got behind 23rd April. I remember six years ago having a chat with Bo from Linekers. It was Paddy’s Day and I said: “It’s a shame we don’t do a George’s Day”. He smiled broadly, as Bo does, and countered: “Well let’s do one then! I’ll put the money up, you sort the day out.” And, true to his word, he did. The rewards are there for all to see as it has become an annual event with lots of bars, such as the Terrace Bar in Amarilla Golf, staging events. Of course, the “biggie” is still at Linekers and this year they are raising money for Helping Hands, with a full day and night of entertainment. So get the face painted, put on the three lions … and celebrate all things English! “If I should die, think only this of me: that there’s some corner of a foreign field that is forever England.” - Rupert Brooke

according to the State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA). It means that the Canaries’ University Hospital (HUC) continues to receive patients from other islands. According to data provided by the HUC’s Security Service, of the 104 patients who arrived by helicopter in 2013, 17 were bound for

Candelaria Hospital. The HUC Security Service is responsible for co-ordinating the helicopter launch, working alongside the 112 Emergency Services and the medical teams awaiting incoming patients. Each team member has specific training to ensure an efficient and smooth helicopter service, including prepara-

tion of the helipad in as little as 10 minutes once details have received When patients arrive at HUC, they are met by medical teams who transfer them to the relevant department: ER, ICU, operating theatre or wards. The maximum transfer time of a patient to a treatment area is just a few minutes.

A rare insight THE Masonic Temple, one of the most fascinating buildings in Santa Cruz, is a magnet for curious residents and visitors.

Although it is acknowledged as one of the most important temples in Southern Europe, it has rarely been opened to the public because it is in need of serious renovation. But the public will be invited in next Friday (25th April) one a one-

off basis as part of the TuSantaCruz Cultural Association’s initiative. The Town Hall has already granted permission for 15-minute taours for groups of 10 people or less, between 4-7pm. Group numbers have had to be limited because of the size of the rooms, and their dilapidated state. But visitors will be allowed to access the main room and the Chamber of Reflection a small, darkened room adjoining the Lodge room. It is a sombre place

of meditation and reflection for candidates preparing for initiation into Freemasonry. The upper floors will not be included on the tour itinerary. Specially-trained guides will accompany the groups, and once the tours have finished there will be a lecture by David Martín López, who holds a PhD in Art History from the University of Granada. The lecture, in the headquarters of the Mutua de Accidente de Canarias, will begin at 7.30pm, based on the Masonic symbolism

which exists in Santa Cruz. Those interested in a tour can email tinfo@ tusantacruz.org Applications are now being accepted, with priority given to TuSantaCruz partners before opening to the public. An initial project to convert the temple into a museum and information resource on Masonry is still in the draft stage. So this initiative could be your last chance to see the temple - declared a Building of Cultural Interest in 2008 - in its current state.

Canaries’ GDP fails to to hit Spanish average THE Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per person recorded in the in the Canary Islands last year was well below the average.

This is the market value of all recognised goods and services produced within a country annually. It is considered to give an idea of a country’s standard of living, despite bearing no relation to income. The Canaries were among last year’s lower GDP regions, recording 18,873 euros - 15.3% below the national average of 22,279 euros per head. These figures, provided by the National Statistics Institute (INE), showed Euskadi (29,959 euros) leading the way, followed by Madrid (28,915) , Navarra (28,358), Catalonia (26,666), La Rioja

(25,277), Aragon (24,732) and the Balearic Islands (23,446). The remaining 10 communities and two autonomous cities were below Spain’s average. But despite being low

down, the Canaries were far from last on the list. That dubious honour fell to Extremadura, with GDP per capita of 15,026 euros), just below Melilla (16,426), Andalucia (16,666), Castilla-La

Mancha (17,780), Murcia (17,901) and Ceuta (18,771). Overall, the GDP “growth” in Spain last year was -1.2%, but the Canaries and the Balearic Islands had

the smallest volume decreases at just -0.4%. Asturias and Castilla y León had the largest GDP regional decline, showing 2.1%. They were followed by Cantabria and the Basque Coun-

try (-1.9%) and La Rioja (-1.8%). Overall, just three regions - Catalonia, Madrid and Andalucia - contributed 50% of the GDP at 18.8%, 17.9% and 13.5% respectively.

Casino staff safe - for now! IT looks as though staff jobs at the Las Americas Casino, under threat of being sold by owners Tenerife Cabildo, will be safe until at least 2018. The Cabildo was set to disclose conditions for the sale of shares in the casino this week, and .the privatisation of the Island’s other two casinos - in Santa Cruz and Puerto de la Cruz - is expected to follow shortly. Plans for selling off all three casinos have been met with

fierce opposition from workers fearing the worst. But a document relevant to the local casino - the only profitable one in the last two years - is

understood to contain a clause safeguarding their positions for now. It means that any company acquiring shares in the casino will be obliged to em-

ploy all staff in place at the time the sale goes through. The new owner must also offer them the same conditions and benefits they now have

for at least two years after the deed of sale has been finalised, which is also expected to take the same period. It will come as a relief, albeit temporary, for the company’s 56 employees, as well as 20 others indirectly employed. A technical and financial evaluation of prospective buyers will be carried out prior to any sale. And the Cabildo says it will continue to manage the casino during the two years prior to the transfer.

Feast of charity feeds a growing community COMMUNITY spirit is alive and well in the Añaza area of Santa Cruz, thanks to its “urban garden” which helps feed hundreds of families.

The garden is the happy result of 18 months of collaboration between the Santa Maria parish and charity group Caritas. Since its humble, sparse beginnings, the 3,000sq.m plot has become a cornerstone of the community and helps to supply fresh produce to desperate families in need. The emphasis is on organic cultivation and education, and local pastor José Hernández, who has served the parish for seven years, said that until the garden came along, he found it hard to find fresh produce to add to the non-perishable foods which had gone to more than 150 fami-

lies. Now, though, he is proud to say that the garden has more than fulfilled its purpose. “The project has not only met the need, but also provided a space that creates a sense of community in the neighbourhood,” he

says. The plot of land, close to the church, had been lying unused for a long time. And when the pastor approached the landowner with the project, the owner surprised him by donating the land for nothing.

The plots were developed with the assistance of local companies and individuals, volunteers and institutions, including the Cabildo and Santa Cruz Town Hall, which charges the project for water only.

Initially there were 33 plots, but now there are 78, covering an area of almost 3,000sq.m, with100 or so local families working on the land, as well as in the parish and community. In a second phase, 15 plots were released

and fruit trees were planted. This part of the project was sponsored by residents, who each donated about 20 euros for seeds and water. In return, the trees will be named after the sponsors. The new plots house citrus fruits, avocados, apples and even papayas, but it will be some time until the new trees are big enough to bear fruit. This was deliberate, says the pastor, because, as the new areas are more youth-oriented, and as the participants grow, so will the trees. In the next few weeks, another Añaza project will be launched, aimed specifically at those in the 18-30 group who are jobless. They will receive agricultural training which, Pastor Hernández says is “a key for improving the life of the residents”. That’s because, he adds: “The better equipped they are, the more options they will have in the future.”

Drop in road deaths here THE number of fatal road accidents in the Canaries during the first quarter this year has fallen by 25% - one of nine Spanish regions to see a decrease.

Nine people died on the roads between January and March, compared with 12 in the same period last year. The figures were provided by the Canaries’ Royal Automobile Club (RACC). Nationally, road deaths last month

rose by 29%, and in the month to 10th April, increase was 26%. Obviously, these figures do not include Easter Week, which, sadly, means April’s overall figures could well show a rise over 2013. By region, Aragon showed the biggest in-

crease in road deaths in the first quarter, up from five in 2013 to 20 in 2014. Castilla y León also showed a significant rise, from 17 to 26 deaths, followed by Navarra (up from 6 to 8), Extremadura (up from 7 to 9), with Cantabria and the Balearics (both up from 4 to 5).

In contrast, the region showing the biggest decline in road deaths was Castilla-La Mancha - down from 30 to 17. The RACC blames distractions on the major cause of traffic accidents, and says many drivers do not perceive the risk they are put-

ting themselves under when at the wheel. Driving while tired, over the alcohol limit (or other substances) are cited, alongside travelling with children or pets in the vehicle. But the most common distractions are said to be mobile phones and GPS systems.

More work this Easter EMPLOYMENT agency Randstad says around 12,000 seasonal contracts are expected to be signed between Easter and the end of May.

The figure rises to around 350,000 for the whole of Spain, many of these in Catalonia, Madrid and Andalucía. Not surprisingly, the majority of new contracts will be offered in

tourist areas. But other regions will not be so fortunate, and the agency expects just 300 contracts to be signed in Soria, and around 800 in Badajoz and Teruel. However, young professionals, or those trying to gain their first employment, are still finding things difficult. Randstad says this sector has become increasingly competitive since 2009. It adds that the “lack of access to jobs commensurate with their experience and level of

training” means that many are reliant on short-term positions when recruitment is good, such as Easter. The importance of mastering other languages is also becoming increasingly noticeable, and many employers ask for a second or even third language while recruiting. English is said to be “indispensable” nationwide, but, depending upon the region, German, French and Russian are more commonly being required.

Low-cost airlines hitting the heights THE number of passengers coming to the Canaries on budget airlines during the first three months of this year is up almost a fifth on the same period in 2013.

A total of 974,940 passengers arrived on such airlines as Ryanair, Vueling and easyJet, up 19.3%. The percentage rise in low-cost air travellers is more than double that of more traditional airlines, whose figures showed a rise of 8.4% in the same period. Overall, however, many more passen-

gers still choose traditional companies, and the Canaries welcomed 2,159,199 passengers arriving with the likes of Monarch, Iberia, Thomas Cook and Tui. Three airports in the Canary Islands ranked in the 10 busiest Spanish airports regarding budget airline traffic. Tenerife South was fifth (431,297, up 21.2%), Gran Canaria sixth (249,263, up 14.6%) and Lanzarote seventh (194,188, up 18.9%). As for passengers arriving via more traditional airlines, Gran Canaria was in third place (746,591, up 12.3%), Tenerife fourth (701,459, down 1.1%), Fuerteventura sixth (354,707, up 10.9%), and Lanzarote seventh

(319,352, up 21.5%). But the trend towards low-cost airlines is continuing. In total, Spanish airports received 11.4 million passengers in the first quarter, up 4.6% on 2013, with 4.8 million of these opting for the cheaper flights The majority of passengers (65.9%) arriving via budget airlines were carried by Ryanair, easyJet and Vueling, but the latter was the only firm to record an increase. Not surprisingly, Brits were again top of the budget airline passenger list, with 1.6 million arriving in the first quarter (up 3.5% on 2013). Italy followed (603,739, up 4.7%), and then Germany (515,871, up 24.3%).

Mayor’s ‘royal’ candidates

SANTA CRUZ Mayor José Manuel Bermúdez, this week met the 28 candidates for the Queen of the May Festival at City Hall.

The gala event, for the first time, will be broadcast live on TVE Canarias next Saturday (26th April) from the Place de la Candelaria. Bermudez was accompanied by the Fiestas Councillor Fernando Ballesteros, and together they presented each contestant with a bouquet of flowers. The Mayor thanked the women, who are representing various organisations, associations and companies. “This is one of Santa Cruz’s most traditional festivals, which are more rooted in the past, and are what we are all about,” he said. “ I wish all the candidates good luck.”

Berlusconi’s soft-touch sentence SHAMEFUL Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian Prime Minister, must carry out a year’s community service in a home for the elderly - but for just half-a-day weekly. That was the softlysoftly sentence dished out by a Milan court following his conviction last year for tax fraud in the Nineties. Not surprisingly, Berlusconi’s lawyers were “satisfied” that the rul-

ing would allow him to remain politically active. It is not the first time the 77-year-old billionaire has found himself in deep trouble - he has been embroiled in a string of court cases. But working in the old folk’s home will feel a world away from his days in the prime ministerial palace. Berlusconi knows he has fallen a long way, and this community service order is probably of deep

embarrassment to him. In some ways, though, he will be relieved, because he knows the court’s ruling could have been far worse. He was anxious to avoid house arrest - the alternative sentence because he was desperate to carry on his political activities. Italian media reports say Berlusconi is likely to work one half-day a week at a church-run home for 2,000 elderly

and disabled people near his estate outside Milan. He will be subject to a curfew and banned from meeting people with criminal convictions - a measure which applies to at least one of his associates, according to the AFP news agency. However, he can travel to Rome from Tuesday to Thursday each week because he is still leader of Forza Italia, the main conservative opposition

bloc. But his conviction means he is barred from standing in next month’s European Elections. Berlusconi has always denied the charges against him, accusing left-wing judges of a witch-hunt aimed at neutralising him as a political leader. Last year he was convicted of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and abusing his powers, which brought

him a lifetime ban from public office and, thus, forcing his expulsion from the Italian Senate. He is appealing against the underage sex conviction, in a trial known as the “Ruby” case. And he is also on trial for allegedly bribing a centreleft senator to switch sides. Apart from that, the old charmer is having a pretty good year legally - by his standards!

Our top-five Euro shame SPAIN may indeed be coming out of the recession, according to the Government, but the figures in Europe tell a different story. Data published by the European Statistics Office reveal that the top five areas with the highest unemployment are all in Spain, with the Canaries lying fourth. Andalucia heads the list with 36.3% jobless, followed by Ceuta (35.6%), Melilla (34.4%), the Canaries (34.1%), and Extremadura (33.7%). Two other Spanish regions feature in the top 10: Castilla-La Mancha is seventh (30.1%) and Murcia ninth (29.4%). Eurostat also analysed youth unemployment,

placing the Canaries fifth, with a worrying 65.3% out of work in the 15-24 age group. But Ceuta topped that list easily with an astonishing 72.7% kicking their heels. Countries in northern Europe compared favourably, with eight of the top 11 areas recording the lowest youth unemployment in Germany. Topping this table were Germany’s Tübingen and Oberbayern, with just 4.4% jobless, closely followed by Freiburg (4.7%), Schwaben (4.8%) and Mittelfranken (5%). Altogether, 23 German areas had youth unemployment figures of 5.4% or less.

Cancer bus bid gathering pace CAROL Salisbury Chappell’s fundraising campaign to provide a free bus service to Candelaria Hospital for cancer victims has been given another huge boost.

Money has flooded in since her initial appeal in Canarian Weekly last November, and she and her charity co-founder, Dacil Martin, are not far wide of their target amount to buy the 18-seater. Carol’s latest attempt to swell the fund - a

market held on the top terrace at Pasarela Oasis, near Paradise Park hotel in Los Cristianos - proved to be enormously successful, raising 840 euros. She received tremendous support and help from various organisations, including AECC (Spain’s Cancer Association); the Canaries’ European Citizens Group: Lions; Masons; Rotarians; Wingate School; Swallows group and its Spanish students; official Language School students; various golf societies and San Blas Cultural Centre. Together with many other volunteers, they

made it a heart-warming experience. The buy-a-bus campaign, backed by Spain’s Cancer Association, is officially called AECC - KM Solidario, South Tenerife. Carol, overwhelmed at the response, said: “A huge thank-you to not only the workers but all the people who attended and spent their money on fantastic bargains, “And thanks, also, to the vast number of people who donated their goods for sale.” A vital contribution came from Don Igor Eguren Larrea, of La PePa Food Market, who made available his

terrace for the event, which will continue at the same place, from midday until 7pm on the first Friday of May, June and July. For more details about the campaign, contact Carol on carolhospitaltransport@ yahoo.co.uk If you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause - no matter how small - ring her on 922 781 783, or 639 069 862. Donations can be also paid into the Spanish national cancer association’s Banco Santander account 0049 0043 35 2313697231, specifying KM Solidario TNF SUR.

Murder suspect held A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of murder after his 23-year-old room-mate was stabbed to death in Playa Paraiso on Monday. The dead Moroccan, who suffered a fatal stomach wound, was found lying on the floor bleeding in Calle La Vega at around 11pm. The emergency services, who went to the

scene following several calls reporting the incident, were unable to save his life. The suspect, found by the Guardia Civil close by with facial injuries, said they had been fighting over a “personal” matter. He was promptly arrested and investigations to clarify why the incident happened are ongoing.

ROBOT’S MAGICAL MARY MAKEOVER LIFE is not always about taking … sometimes, giving a little back goes a long way to making someone feel special.

That’s just what Carl Pattison, from Robot Hair and Beauty, decided he would do. He invited Canarian Weekly to hold a Mother’s Day competition to seek out that special Mum, whose family thought she deserved a real one-off make-over. Carl and his team - stylist Linzy and beautician Stella - set to work on our winner, Mary Stackhouse, to give her a totally new look. She was nominated by her daughter, who told us that she was always going out of her way to help others yet rarely received anything herself. Mary visited the Los Cristianos salon on Tuesday for her make-

over, and Carl began by changing her cut and colour. “Mary’s hair was a little over-highlighted and needed toning down slightly,” said Carl. “A fine weave of honeyand-ash highlights were placed through her hair, giving it brightness and warmth at the same time.

“A background colour of golden blonde took away the darker roots, leaving her looking blonder yet warmer throughout.”

He added: “Her hair, as it was before, looked too ashen against her skin tone, and clients of Mary’s age group need to stay away from colours which can look too ‘whitey’ because this can give an ageing appearance. “Her cut was the biggest change, as you can see in the ‘before’ photo. Her hair was nearly all one length and lacked a flattering shape.” Mary’s hair was cut to just past the shoulder, leaving her enough hair to play with. Carl also gave her choppy layers to soften her frame and create

movement and height because, as he said: “There’s nothing worse than this length of hair being left too long as it can drag down the face.” After the colour and cut, our winner was given a five-star Dermabrasion Facial lasting over an hour. This treatment scuffs off the outer layer of the dead skin cells, revealing newer, more youthful skin. And when repeated, fine lines will appear diminished - giving your skin a healthy glow. Next, Mary had her nails filed and polished with Shellac, a gel-type polish which lasts up to three weeks and hardens instantly. So no smudges! This was followed by a luxury pedicure and, finally, Mary was made up ready for her photos. Carl told us there could not have been a better competition winner. “Mary was the perfect client throughout and

listened to all the advice she received to achieve her special look,” he said. As you can see from the before and after photos, our winner certainly took off a few years after her visit to Robot. It’s easy to see why Carl absolutely loves this type of work. “It’s so good to see someone who’s willing to listen - and then to see her leave with a smile on her face,” he said. “That’s what makes my job so special. It’s not always about the financial gain.” Mary left the salon with a new spring in her step, clutching a big bottle of Champagne and chocolates. She knew she looked a million dollars. And the best part was that the staff could see that in her as well. So next time Team Robot are looking for a make-over winner, pick up the phone and put yourself forward. You never know… it could be you!

PM loves Lanzarote DAVID CAMERON and his family clearly enjoyed their Easter holiday in Lanzarote this week.

The Prime Minister, who loves holidaying in Spain, looked relaxed as he strolled through the medieval streets of Teguise over the weekend. He also lapped up the rays and indulged in a spot of surfing under a hot sun on the beautiful Caleta de Famara beach. This sunny corner of

the island is favoured by windsurfing fans, and the PM seemed comfortable in a wetsuit on his rented surfboard as he dived into the waves. His children, Arthur, Nancy and Florence, also enjoyed the waves while his wife, Samantha, topped up her tan. Later in the week, the family dined in Caleta de Famara, recently chosen by Pedro Almodóvar for the film Broken Embraces. Afterwards they went shopping in Playa Honda before returning to their Tomaren base, in the rural town of San

Bartolome. The 18th century, four-bedroom villa was recently renovated and, apparently, costs 250 euros a night to rent. This was, unsurprisingly, criticised heavily by some British newspapers, who also claimed he committed a fashion faux pas by wearing the same beige loafers as last year, when the Camerons visited Portugal. But the PM did show some signs of keeping the cost down - the family flew to Lanzarote on a scheduled Ryanair flight! 

Missing girls died 40 years ago OFFICIALS in South Dakota have solved the mystery of two missing teenage girls - after more than 40 years!

But there is no happy ending. Cheryl Miller

and Pamella Jackson, both 17, who disappeared in 1971 while on their way to a party, died after driving into a creek. Their car, a 1960 Studebaker, had been hidden for 42 years in the creek near Elk Point, a small town in South Dakota.

It finally resurfaced because of a drought and was found last September. But the results of the forensic testing of the skeletal remains have taken all this time to be announced. Investigators showed dozens of photographs

of well-preserved clothing, Miss Miller’s purse and even her driver’s licence, complete with a photograph. Attorney General Marty Jackley said; “These personal items and DNA were used to identify the girls, It’s consistent with a car accident.

“To start with, the forensic pathology and anthropology reports indicate there’s no type of injury that would be consistent with, or caused by, foul play or inappropriate conduct.” Following their disappearance, family members, police and oth-

ers searched the area countless times without luck. Miss Jackson’s father, Oscar, will never know because, sadly, he died just five days before the car was found. The girls’ remains will be returned to family members for burial.

property swop the solution?

THIS week, I am touching on a subject I’ve been asked about recently. The name in Spanish is “Dación en Pago” (lieu of payment), which means cancellation of the debt.

In short, the debtor provides a service to the creditor, substituting the original debt. For example, the debtor owes money to the creditor and, instead of refunding it the debtor pays, or cancels the debt, by handing over a property. It is not the usual way of payment of a mortgage loan of course. This way, the debtor (mortgagee) who cannot pay future instalments, cancels the mortgage (totally or partially) to the bank (mortgagor), handing over the property (instead of the money). This way, the risk of non-payment is transferred to the creditor. The Mortgage Law states the possibility to agree in the Mortgage Deed that the debt is to be fully covered by the mortgage loan (the responsibility is limited to the assets and there would be no personal responsibility). This agreement has to be stated at the Mortgage Deed. The Civil Code does not mention the “Dación en Pago” itself

but this possibility is recognised. The problem of the “Dación en Pago” (cancellation) is that it involves a double taxation. The tax is paid when the bank gets the property and when the bank sells it. This makes this solution more complicated and is why it puts some people off. The Spanish Government has just approved the cancellation of the mortgage by Dacion en Pago (refunding the property), even if the

value of the property is lower than the debt. The question is: who can use this possibility? We have heard on TV, radio or read in the papers that it is now possible to pay off the mortgage with the property. But it is almost impossible to fulfil all the requirements. I will give you examples: *The bank must be ones accepting the “ethic code” of Royal Law-Decree 6/2012 (if your bank is not one of

them, it can apply this regulation) *The value of the property should be lower than 200,000 euros (this value changes, depending on regions) *If there is an existing foreclosing proceeding in which the auction date has been fixed *If there are charges (attachments) after the mortgage *If the debtor, spouse or children are employed (even if they are self-contracted) *If the debtor, spouse or children have other

assets enough to cover the debt *If the mortgage instalment does not exceed 60% of the net income of the family. Consequently, if the income is 1,000 euros and the mortgage instalment is 600 euros, the Dación en Pago would not be possible *If there are guarantors *If the debtor passes all filters, at the time of the Dacion en Pago, he could remain as tenant (lessee) in the property for up to two years (with no renewal)

and the annual rental payment would be 3% of the existing debt. That is, if the final debt were 100,000 euros, the annual rent would be 3,000 euros, (250 euros per month). A 20% interest rate to be applicable to the non-payment rent Mariano Zunino Siri is a lawyer registered in Tenerife Bar Association since 1991.

Tommy Cooper: Not Like That Like This

Don't Miss...

Monday 21st April, ITV1, 21.00 Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This is a single drama based on the life of the legendary comedian Tommy Cooper, written by Simon Nye and produced by multi award-winning production company, Left Bank Pictures. Simon Nye’s script focuses on the dilemma the much-loved comedian faced when he fell in love with assistant Mary Kay and embarked upon a relationship that would last 17 years. Tommy was married to Gwen, whom he adored and affectionately nicknamed Dove. Tommy was unable to choose between Dove and Mary, and his untimely death live on air in 1984 meant that he never did. David Threlfall (Shameless, Nowhere Boy) will play the iconic comedian, Amanda Redman (New Tricks, Little Dorrit) takes the role of Dove and Helen McCrory (Peaky Blinders, We’ll Take Manhatton) plays Mary. When Tommy’s extensive touring started to affect their home life, Dove decided she couldn’t go on the road with him any longer. Whilst Tommy travelled the length and breadth of the country with his own brand of visual humour and ingenious magic tricks she knew she had to remain at home to run the house. Their children, Tom Junior and Vicky, needed her and maternal Dove knew her own mind – “She’s actually not much like a dove. She’s strong. Kills first, asks questions later”.

Wanted: A Family of My Own ITV1, 21.00

The profoundly life changing process of adoption is uncovered in this new four part series. Following the stories of parents desperate to adopt and children who need families, cameras have been granted access into many defining moments of the adoption process from prospective parents’ meetings with social workers and facing adoption panels, to the moment a child leaves their foster carers and meets their new parents for the first time. Presented by Nicky Campbell, himself adopted as a baby, the series sets out to provide an intimate insight into adoption in Britain today, through the experiences of children and couples followed at close quarters as they progress through the proceedings involved. In showing key stages of each child and each couple’s experience, Wanted: A Family of My Own, offers a rare perspective on the impact of adoption on the lives of those involved. Looking at why children need new families, the range of people who want to adopt and how the process operates, the series builds an understanding of adoption today which may challenge preconceptions.

The Great North Passion BBC1, 12noon Fern Britton Thousands are set to gather in Bent’s Park, South Shields on Good Friday for BBC One’s extraordinary spectacle, The Great North Passion. The one-hour live event and broadcast will reveal a giant iconic installation in the shape of a cross and is a unique and innovative re-telling of the story of the Passion. Fern Britton and singer Alexandra Burke join local community participants, ranging from dancers to graffiti artists to a massed choir, to tell the story of the last moments of Christ’s life from his trial and suffering to his eventual death. Twelve artists have created new contemporary work with local communities across the North East of England inspired by the stations of the cross. Housed in shipping containers they will be joined together to form the final cross installation. Artworks range from a boat atop a shipping container with a net descending to the floor made by local fishermen questioning ‘what is truth’, to the memories of Northumberlanders inscribed on a long wooden table. Documentary short films will be weaved with the live broadcast to reveal both the story of the Passion and that of the North East. The Great North Passion is created in partnership with The Cultural Spring.

21:00 Lewis ITV1, 21.00

When Lewis and Hathaway investigate the murder of university psychologist Reuben Beatty, it appears that he has been injected with a powerful paralysing agent. Then it is revealed that Beatty had been moonlighting as a clairvoyant. His colleague Vicki Walmsley is convinced that Beatty’s mentor, along with his military paymasters, may have killed him to keep him quiet. As Lewis and Hathaway struggle to unpick his baffling double life, Vicki herself is murdered and it becomes obvious that dark forces are at work - and not just in the afterlife.

Unreported World Channel 4, 19:30

Reporter Evan Williams and director Marcel Mettelsiefen travel to Baghdad to meet the extraordinary young dancers and musicians at Iraq’s only music and ballet school, who are battling to keep their art alive against the rising tide of sectarian violence in the city. It’s the run up to the elections at the end of April and up to 300 people are being killed in Baghdad every week by car bombs and assassinations. But, hidden away from the violence, the school is a refuge of culture and artistic expression.

Amazing Greys ITV1, 20.20 Amazing Greys sees young contestants take on some of the country’s most talented pensioners. Hosted by Paddy McGuinness, this family show proves that age is just a number. And on hand to encourage and represent the Greys as they battle the young pretenders is Angela Rippon. Each of the Amazing Greys has an incredible talent which they have spent a lifetime perfecting. Be it physical, mental or something completely unique to them, each will give their all as the contestants take them on. The contestants will face a maximum of three Amazing Greys. If they can beat two of the three, they’ll leave with £10,000. If they don’t, they leave with nothing. Paddy McGuinness said: “Amazing Greys proves that appearances can be deceptive as our contestants take on some of the UK’s most talented pensioners. Be it sport, general knowledge or something completely unique our ‘golden oldies’ will give their all as the younger contestants take them on.” Angela Rippon added: “The show will celebrate some of our most talented senior citizens and I’ll be there to cheer them on as they take on the younger contestants.”

Chinese Grand Prix - Qualifying Highlights. Suzi Perry introduces highlights of the qualifying session from Shanghai, with commentary by David Coulthard and Ben Edwards.

It is hard to work out what crime has been committed, but Ronnie and Joe have enough evidence to suggest that Georgia gave birth in the hotel room. There is no trace of a baby and it proves difficult for Jake and Kate to mount a prosecution case against Georgia and her boyfriend. To make matters worse, the defence counsel turns out to be an old opponent of Jake’s, Maitland Cosby. As the evidence against the young couple stacks up, how far is Georgia’s father prepared to go to protect her?

Messiah At The Foundling Hospital BBC2, 21.30

Eighteenth Century Britain: Majesty, Music And Mischief More than 250 years since its composition, Handel’s Messiah remains one of the most popular choral pieces in western music. It’s been recorded hundreds of times, is performed across the globe by amateurs and professionals alike, and it contains a tune that is as instantly recognisable as any in music, the Hallelujah Chorus. Yet few people know the heart-rending story of how this much-loved work first came to public attention or the role it played in helping save the lives of tens of thousands of children. Historian Amanda Vickery and BBC Radio 3 presenter Tom Service present this one-hour drama documentary which re-creates the first performance of Messiah at London’s Foundling Hospital in 1750 and tells the story of how this special fundraising concert heralded a golden age of philanthropy for the country at large. The 1750 performance of Messiah at the Foundling Hospital was one of the first fundraising concerts in which art and philanthropy came together to raise money from the haves for the have-nots.

Perspectives: The Magic of Houdini with Alan Davies ITV1, 22.00 The Perspectives documentary strand brings together powerful stories and unique insights into the arts from a range of well-known figures. Now in its fourth year, the strand will encompass six films from a rich variety of distinctive individuals offering their take on subjects for which they have a personal enthusiasm and fascination. Perspectives: The Magic of Houdini with Alan Davies “I’ve always liked magic. I had a pack of cards when I was a kid and a book of tricks – even a wand. As a kid growing up in the seventies, you couldn’t turn the television on without somebody sawing a lady in half. But of course, the magician who intrigued me the most was Harry Houdini.” Alan Davies “My brain is the key that sets me free” - Harry Houdini Having had a fascination with the world of magic since he was a boy, Alan Davies explores the extraordinary life of illusionist and stunt performer, Harry Houdini, the man who against the odds became one of the most successful entertainers in the world. In a bid to understand why Houdini felt compelled to perform such terrifying death defying acts, Alan visits New York where the young Eric Weiss arrived as a child with his Hungarian immigrant family, made his entry into show business and ultimately performed some of his most deathdefying stunts. Immersing himself in the world of Houdini, Alan tries to hold his breath under ice cold water, lies on a bed of nails, gets strung upside down in a straitjacket and takes an exclusive look at David Copperfield’s priceless collection of Houdini artefacts in Vegas. Alan talks to Houdini enthusiasts and delves into the family history of a man driven to conquer his rivals and be the very best. And the star of Jonathan Creek reveals he learnt very few tricks of the trade creating illusions in the drama but marvels at the lengths Houdini, and his modern counterparts, go to protect their illusions. From his most famous escapology stunt the Chinese Water Torture Cell to the momentous showdown of the Daily Mirror Challenge performed at London’s Hippodrome, this film takes a journey through the life of the diminutive magician born Erich Weiss. Says Alan: “For Houdini it really was mind over matter...it is amazing what he could withstand, what he put himself through. Physical discomfort most people would find beyond endurance was routine for him, part of his preparation and training for the cold water escapes when he dropped himself into rivers off bridges. He would submerge himself in ice baths and hold his breath for three minutes. “I had a bit of a go and half a minute is my absolute limit. I don’t really know if could do much more than that. Of course I might be able to do a minute or even two if it came to it but I don’t have the inclination to push myself to find out...the thing with Houdini is he was pushing himself to find out his own limits and human limits for endurance and pain.”

Jamaica Inn Spirited Mary Yellan finds herself alone in the world when her mother passes away. Her only option is to travel to Cornwall to stay with her aunt Patience at Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor. Despite pressure to marry local boy Ned after her mother’s death, Mary refuses to compromise. Though Ned is kind to her, she doesn’t love him and won’t marry without love. Mary declines Ned’s proposal, and journeys to the ends of the Earth to Jamaica Inn in Cornwall to stay with her aunt Patience. When Mary arrives at the isolated Inn she discovers that Patience is not the vibrant beauty Mary remembers from childhood, and the years of marriage to Mary’s bullying uncle Joss have taken their toll, leaving a tired and anxious woman in her place. Joss is a smuggler and the head of a gang of men who smuggle all along the stretch of coastline. It’s dangerous and violent work and when Joss isn’t smuggling, he is drinking heavily to forget all that he has seen. To complicate matters further, Mary finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Jem Merlyn, but Jem is her uncle’s brother and therefore not to be trusted in Mary’s mind - although her heart may say otherwise... Life at Jamaica Inn challenges Mary’s black and white perceptions of morality as she finds herself living among smugglers in a lawless land where no one is quite who they seem. When she thinks she has witnessed a murder, Mary wonders at what cost she will stay silent. Mary Yellan is played by Jessica Brown Findlay, Jem Meryln by Matthew McNulty, Joss Meryln by Sean Harris, Aunt Patience by Joanne Whalley, Francis Davey by Ben Daniels and Hannah by Shirley Henderson.

A look at how the changing position of the sun in the sky affects the behaviour of animals and plants across our planet, from solar-powered chameleons to sun-worshipping lemurs in search of a heat fix. The sun’s position in the sky creates moments of incredible opportunity, but it also plunges animals into crisis. We take the rising and setting of the sun for granted, but it is the ultimate game changer, and the way animals respond will make the difference between success and failure, life or death.

Law & Order: UK ITV1, 21.00 When a series of shootings claims one of their own, Ronnie (Bradley Walsh) and Joe (Ben Bailey Smith) have little time to grieve – they must catch the killer before he or she can reach the next people on the hit - list. And in first place on that list is Henry Sharpe (Peter Davison), head of the Crown Prosecution Service. The link between all the targets becomes clear - the common factor is the case of Mark Glendon (Mark Bonnar) put away for the murder of his wife four years ago. But he is still in prison, though soon to be retried. However, the police struggle to find concrete evidence that connects Glendon to the shootings and the race is on the catch the killer before the jury delivers their verdict.

MasterChef BBC1, 20:00

Cookery competition with John Torode and Gregg Wallace. As the final week of heats begins, six more amateur cooks try to prove to the judges that they have the potential to be the tenth MasterChef champion. Firstly, the contestants are asked to cook their calling card, a practiced dish that represents who they are as a cook and showcases their talent. They have just one hour to dazzle the judges with one plate of food that shows just what they can do. They then face the infamous invention test, choosing between two sealed boxes of ingredients. This time round, sweet ingredients include rhubarb, pomegranate and puff pastry, while the savoury box contains pollock, sausages and capers. Two amateurs are sent home, and the four remaining cooks must cook an impressive menu for some special guests from the show’s past. At the end of this, John and Gregg will select two cooks to take the next step in the competition and go through to the week’s quarter-final.

Protecting Our Parents BBC2, 21.00 Episode two, Who Decides?, explores the dilemma faced by elderly care services when trying to keep people living in their own homes. Kathleen and Leonard Price have lived in the same house, in Birmingham, for 50 years. Kathleen is bed-bound and receives Social Services’ maximum support of four visits a day by carers. But in the past three months, she’s called 999 over 150 times asking for help. It’s costing the NHS thousands of pounds. The couple want to stay at home but Kathleen’s care package isn’t meeting her needs. She would like 24-hour care at home, but doesn’t have the savings to pay for it herself. While Kathleen is being treated in hospital, the question turns to her mental health. Before she leaves, the hospital team need to test her mental capacity to see if she understands the extent of her care needs at home - or whether her 999 calls are symptomatic of her inability to make decisions about her care. If it’s decided Kathleen lacks capacity, she may no longer be able to choose to live at home. And if she is moved into care, she may have to be separated from her husband.

PLAN… PREPARE… PERFORM! THE three Ps are something which can be applied to any role, in any walk of life. And in the world of entertainment, if you do not plan and prepare properly, you will probably perform poorly.

A lot of Ps, I know, but it seems P plays an important role in showbiz. It is obvious when an act has not applied the attributes of the three Ps, yet there have been shows on this Island which seem to have been thrown together with a bunch of karaoke tracks by one artiste and hey presto! A tribute act is born. When an artiste has applied the three Ps, an audience will see a show by an entertainer making it look effortless. There are so many consistent entertainers here who are always tweaking and polishing their performance by adding new material, or keeping abreast with popular music and the latest releases. Sometimes, especially with music, once one

artiste has become the first to sing a popular song, everyone is on it straight away. For instance, the first

person I know of who performed Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke in his set was Mikey Mike. Now, although the

The same phenomenon is happening with the song Happy, by Pharrell Williams. But this is not as easy to

The Droo Crew OVER the last few weeks Oasis Fm, suggested that we take Friday’s radio show on the road and do the show as an outside broadcast from a bar.

Well, being the socialite that I am, I thought about it for a short time and a few seconds later a resounding, “definitely up for that” slipped from my lips. Regular members of the Droo Crew have joined me each week from a different bar usually the one hosting the Tenerife Loves Karaoke heat. Last week at Soul Train, Crew captain Darren Clarke attempted to beat a world record live on air. This was a radio first for Oasis Fm, but it was seen by some as a silly world record. However, Darren

had applied the three Ps and was ready. His world record attempt was to beat the number of Smarties eaten in 60 seconds … with Chinese chopsticks! The record was 17 and Darren was attempting to better it by just one. After a little chopstick tuition from a

Comedy is something for which you have to prepare. One artiste who definitely ticks all the boxes with Ps is Kevin Isaac, who performs the Comedy Elvis Show. Kev puts in so much effort into his costumes and his dialogue, and his comedy is always current and typically topical. This is purely down to the prep that goes on off-stage - and also why his show never fails. When you have seen a good show that has made you smile and kept you entertained from start to finish, always remember that the artiste has put in so much more than just his time on stage. His or her perfect planning and preparation has prevented a poor performance. That’s actually six Ps before the individual goes on stage.

HEAT 7: Tenerife Loves Karaoke at Soul Train

Kofi-Lee is cream of the crop WITH the competition at its halfway point, the TLK tour bus stopped at Soul Train in San Eugenio last Friday.

And, joy of joys, we have finally produced a male for the Grand Finals, who will join the six girls already there. Soul Train is a lateopening bar, so followers did not arrive as early as they do at other venues. However, the competition got underway at the normal time and with 10 competitors. John, one of the Soul Train partners, entered for fun and opened the competition with Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline, much to the delight of the staff and regulars, who found it all rather amusing. As did this week’s judging panel, and John will be happy to know that he didn’t get the lowest score - but it was close! The points were awarded by four extremely credible judges. Representing the venue were resident vocalist and partner in Soul Train, Sebastian Whittaker, from New York, vocalist and award-winner Luke Carey, from Hull, and Emcan’s media sales manager John Zammit. Also on board again was Michelle Phillips, a member of the public who has now notched up 40 different TLK heats over the years. No wonder she is often referred to as Chief Judge. When it came to the contestants, one entrant was at the bar from 3pm in the afternoon to ensure his place, Vasillica, or Billy as he’s known, put on a good performance after following John’s version of Sweet Caroline with Billy Joel’s Just The Way You Are. The competition was then in full swing and each entrant was randomly selected to perform his or her song. It is difficult for people to get up and sing if they are not used to working in a stage environment. And put-

ting yourself there to be judged merely piles on the pressure. No wonder the contestants were feeling nervous as each singer was called out. And after the first round, the top three are voted through to the big Sing-Off. This time, Ray, Eliza

and Kofi-Lee had the highest scores, which seemed to go down well with the audience and means just one thing: the judges had done a good job. The winner by a clear margin was 14-year-old Kofi-Lee Hopkins-Taylor, who secured his entry into the grand final.

Kofi-Lee is not just the only male in the final so far, but the youngest entrant to get through. And unless the competition produces more male finalists, he could also be surrounded by girls in the dressing room at Showtime on 6th June. The two songs which saw him through were Dance With Me Tonight by Olly Murs and, in the sing-off, Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls. A clearly-surprised Kofi-Lee accepted his trophy graciously. But once it had sunk in, he and his family were thrilled - and they just can’t wait to support him at June’s Grand Final. The next Tenerife Loves Karaoke heat will be held at Palms Sports Bar in San Eugenio tonight (Friday), again hosted by Oasis Fm presenter Jamie Droo. You can enter the contest by calling 902 232 102 or directly at the venue. If you have entered previous heats and have not been lucky enough to get through, you are welcome to enter again at any heat leading up to the final. Oasis Fm and TLK will begin proceedings from 9pm at Palms Sports Bar tonight.

By Sue McDonald OUR core business has always been furnishing properties from scratch, but more and more we are being asked to do total or partial refurbs.

18th April 2014 - 24th April 2014

Refurb the name of the game now!

It is possible to spend a small sum of money and achieve a noticeable improvement. And the use of colour and style means the result does not have to look cheap. If you buy a property with the intention of renting it out and it is already furnished, it can become more individual and attractive by moving a few shelves

around, putting in abstract pictures with a hint of colour and luxury, a few mirrors to add light and depth to some areas, and some new terrace furniture. Should the property be unfurnished, we can provide a rental furniture package to suit all the inventory needs, for a modest cost. We supply everything, right down to the ket-

tle and toaster, towels and sheets, so that the property is immediately ready to move into. And we can usually do this within seven days. The advantage is clear: everything ordered from one place, and installed in one visit. In fact, most of the time, the clients give us the keys, and the property is ready when they return to the Island. The owners can then get their investments working for them without further delay. Since most rentals nowadays will be done via a website, the photos will immediately differentiate these apartments from the many available for rental. And the spend can be dictated by the budget available. In other cases, the only work needed may be to reupholster sofas or chairs, and sometimes just the seat cushions if these are the parts most worn. Together with a cou-

ple of toning cushions, a few hundred euros can save you the cost of a new sofa, while giving your property a new lease of life. Obviously, the furniture business is largely dependant on property sales and new-builds, but I have to say that our refurbishment side is doing well, particularly reupholstery. Despite not having a shop as such, we can visit clients at their property and give a free, no-obligation estimate. We also have a show-

room which clients can visit by appointment to see the quality of our furniture, and our huge range of curtaining and upholstery materials. We are currently working on furnishing several properties which had been repossessed, and needed some remedial work prior to furnishing. And we have co-ordinated the whole project, including building work and painting and decorating for buyers, who have returned to their home country and left it in our hands.

The colourful Egg plant By Margaret Tully IT’S Easter, whatever that means to you - be it religious or simply another welcome holiday in our busy lives.

For me - setting aside Saturday’s horrendous weather - it tells me it is hotting up and nearly time to do my seedsowing en-masse. I’m sticking with the Easter theme this week and talking about a great edible, known in the US as the Egg Plant, in the UK as an Aubergine and in Spain the Berenjena. It is a plant from the genus Solanum, a member of the Nightshades, such is the Potato and the Tomato. Unfortunately, some people can be allergic

to nightshades and if you are, I’m afraid the aubergine is not for you. The first week in May is the best time to sow

your aubergine seeds, so you have a couple of weeks or so to get organised. You can also sow tomatoes, cucumbers,

peppers and melons, etc, at the same time to ensure your summer will be full of bright colours! Now you can see why I suggested last

Re-use, re-cycle and up-cycle!

I AM introducing this feature to the page and if you already reuse, re-cycle or up-cycle, I would love to hear from you. Please email me at margaretktully@ aol.com As we will soon be needing lots of plant pots for our seeds and seedlings, I would love share my ideas with you about how to make your own pots. Plastic bottles Amazingly useful in the garden. People the world over are re-using these items which, let’s be honest, are made from the most discarded plastic on a daily basis. You can create a selfwatering pot for little seedlings, in case you are unable to water them yourself, or simply forget. Cut the bottle (be very careful because they can be sharp), making sure you leave the end with the cap longer. Place the other piece of the bottle on to a flat surface and fill to halfway with water. Turn the other piece upside down so the cap end is sitting in the wa-

ter, remove the cap and replace with an absorbent length of cloth (a strip of fabric from an old cotton shirt would be ideal), making sure you leave a tail of cloth hanging out of the top of the bottle. This then goes into the water and begins to soak it up. Now plant up your bottle with compost and your seedling. The water will take time to be soaked up into the roots of your plant, but it should be enough for a couple of days. The top half of a bottle makes a great cloche for your newly-planted seedlings, and you can regulate the heat by removing the cap in hot weather. As soon as you’re happy that the plant will fend for itself, remove the cloche. Believe it or not, I have seen greenhouses made from plastic bottles! Toilet-roll inners These make excellent, biodegradable pots for seedlings with long root runs, such as peas and sweet peas. You can plant out the seedling in the cardboard pot as it will gradually disintegrate into the earth. It

is also a form of nutrition for the new seedling. Newspapers Sheets of newspaper can be wrapped around containers that are round, such as hairspray cans, to form pots made of paper. Cut a taller pot than required and fold the long ends in until you have created a little pot for your seed. Again, another biodegradable pot. Newspapers are perfect for lining the bottom of a trench in which you want to plant potatoes, or in the hole where you are planting greedy plants such as pumpkins. Yoghurt pots You can create sturdy plastic pots with your used yoghurt pots by simply making a few drainage holes in the bottom. Egg cartons/boxes The plastic cartons into which eggs are packed are ready-made mini-propagators. Simply plant up the six little spaces vacated by the eggs, leaving the lid almost closed - just allow a small gap for the

air to circulate. You can open the lid once the seedlings have started to sprout and then, carefully, replant once established. They don’t take up much room and are ideal for small seeds, such as basil or cress. Cardboard egg boxes are also biodegradable, which means the lid can be planted up as well, and the whole thing can be planted out. The egg shells can be used as little plant pots or, when crushed, they are superb for the compost heap and around fleshy-leafed plants to prevent slugs from munching the leaves. We are lucky there aren’t many slugs here in Tenerife, but snails can be a problem. Tin cans Finally, used and thoroughly-washed tins are ideal for growing plants in. They look classy when painted, with the name of the plant printed on. It’s a cheap way of making a really modern look, and brilliant for herbs. But do remember to make drainage holes in the bottom.

week that you should wash all your pots. Here’s how you grow aubergines Soak the seeds overnight because this will encourages germination. Sow them in a good, seed-sowing compost which is loose and light, and they will take just over a week to sprout. Once the seedlings reach about 3ins, transplant them to individual pots. Keep transplanting them to larger pots until the outside temperature is warm enough. It has to be about 70ºF consistently for three months, which is not at all hard to achieve here in Tenerife Give your plants plenty of room - they need 2½-3ft in all directions – so bear this in mind when sowing seeds, and use enough only for the available space. Water them in well, once in final position, and give each plant 1-2 cups of Compost Tea (around the plant not on them), and firm the soil gently. And here’s how you

make Compost Tea *Ingredients *½lb mature compost *½ gallon water *Large bucket *Piece of gauze or sieve Method *Put compost and water in the large bucket *Site it somewhere not too hot and not too cold because it has the Goldilocks syndrome *Stir every day for five days *Strain through the muslin or sieve into watering can *Use this liquid, undiluted, to feed your aubergines. Use liquid straight away as it does not store well Warning: use this feed at time of planting only. It should not be used for at least three weeks before harvesting. Your aubergines will be ready to harvest in July, August and September. Aubergines come in lots of colours and shapes - not just the beautiful, deep-purple ones, so you can really create a rainbow of aubergines to grace your dinner table.

SOW IT… GROW IT… TASTE IT Aubergine Vegetarian Faggots Ingredients *2 aubergines *1 tomato *Bag of chopped almonds *1 cup of oats *Various herbs of your choice *2 carrots *3oz cheese (use nonanimal by-product if making vegan) *Salt *Olive oil Method *Heat oven to 180ºC. *Cut top and bottom of aubergines and cut into slices *Place on a salted plate and sprinkle more salt on top (this soaks up extra moisture and stops aubergines soaking up all oils) *Leave for 20 mins, drain and set aside

*Finely chop tomato. Mix with the oats, almonds and herbs *Grate carrots and add to the mixture *Grate cheese and add 2oz to mixture *Bind mixture together with your hands *Place dollop of mixture into centre area of each aubergine slice. Drizzle oil over top of mixture and roll up slices *Place in baking dish *Drizzle a little more olive oil over top of rolled slices *Sprinkle remaining 1oz of cheese over top of them *Bake for 25-35 minutes. Serve warm with side-salad and crusty bread.

By Val Sainsbury A BRITISH icecream maker has invented a dessert which can help with erectile dysfunction - by flavouring the batch with Viagra.

The Arousal flavour, which contains up to 100mg per scoop, was created specifically on request for a celebrity customer of South Wales ice-cream company Lick Me I’m Delicious. Inventor Charlie Harry

18th April 2014 - 24th April 2014

New ice-cream has that outstanding ingredient! Francis added the Viagra to the ice cream and used Champagne to enhance the stand-out recipe. It is available in three doses: 25mg, 100mg and the widely-recommended 50mg. Mr Francis was approached by an “A-list” celebrity to create the specific flavour for a party, and spent a few days perfecting the recipe. “It’s all very secretive,” he said. “We had to sign a confidentiality agreement, so I can’t reveal the name of the client. “All I’m allowed to say

is that it was for a party and that they were very happy with the end result - and that I made ‘the required amount’. “But because it was for a celebrity, they’re being cagey about what I can say about it.”

Mr Francis, who last year succeeded in making the world’s first glow-in-the-dark icecream using jellyfish luminescence protein, says that although his new creation was great fun, he found sourcing

the Viagra “embarrassing”. His team, so proud of their creation, are now working on creating the world’s first flammable ice-cream. This is not the first time Viagra ice-cream

has made the news. London-based The Icecreamists, famous for its Lady Gaga breast-milk ice-cream, has long been serving its Sex Bomb flavour, which uses a herbal erectile stimulant.

Doubts over the safety of E-cigs ALTHOUGH I have written before about the benefits of e-cigarettes as opposed to the dangers of smoking tobacco, there is now some doubt about fake fags being any safer. British sales of e-cigs have soared by 340% in the past year as smokers turn to the electronic devices in a bid to quit traditional cigarettes. Now, a study examining the biological effects, found “strikingly similar”

gene mutations in lung cells exposed to e-cig vapour as those found in smokers. Scientists grew bronchial cells in mediums exposed to e-cig vapour and compared them with bronchial cells grown in a medium exposed to tobacco smoke. They found that the gene mutations in both sets of cells, although not identical, showed “striking similarities”. Study author Avrum Spira, a genomics and lung-cancer researcher

at Boston University, said: “E-cigarettes may be safer, but our preliminary studies suggest that they may not be benign.” This means that although e-cigarette vapour is free from tobacco and tar, and the device does not require combustion, it could, potentially, increase a user’s risk of cancer. Doctor Spira, who presented the study’s findings at last week’s annual meeting of the American Association

of Cancer Research, said he could not confirm or deny that e-cigs caused cancer. That’s because, he said, the research was in its early stages, and further experiments were planned. E-cigs have soared in popularity in recent years as consumers look for “healthier” ways to continue puffing, rather than use gum or patches to quit the habit. Figures released last month found that while sales of smokers’ quitting aids have slowed, the market for e-cigs is booming. Sales in the past year rocketed from £44m in 2012 to an estimated £193m in 2013. The report says that while the smoking cessation market has seen strong growth historically, with annual increases of around 6-10% from 2009-12, sales of products such as gum, tablets and patches have slowed. In 2013 the market for smoking cessation aids grew just 1.7% to reach a value of £131 million.

GAULTIER STILL ALL THE RAGE!

THE THREE STEPS TO HAIR HEAVEN

By Carl from Robot

THERE is one thing I believe you must have with your hair, and that’s a routine.

Not the style or the colour, but a routine of how you look after carrying it out. Here is a list of things that influence the texture and condition of your hair - see how many you think affect you. *The Tenerife sun *Sea and pool water *Use of styling aids, such as irons *Colouring and perming *Styling products *General health *Pregnancy

I bet there are more than a few of these items which affect your hair, but there are ways to help combat these external and internal problems, which can dry out and even ruin your hair. For starters, a basic hair-care routine is essential, and the best building block is a good shampoo. Without this, it doesn’t matter how good your conditioner is if you use a cheap shampoo the next time you wash it. That’s because it’s just going to strip out all the goodness you have put back in. Your shampoo should cleanse without stripping and moisturise without weighing the hair down. It should leave your hair feeling clean for conditioning, which is the next phase. If your hair squeaks

after shampooing, then you’ve over-washed it, or the shampoo is too harsh. Your conditioner should be light and not weigh your hair down. You should be able to pass your comb through it with ease. If you’re tugging at it, then it’s not the one for you. Afterwards, your hair should feel soft but not limp and, depending on the colour, should also have some degree of shine to it. As should your masque, which, depending on your hair condition and length, should be applied once a week. This penetrates the hair shaft more, replacing lost ingredients vital to healthy hair. If you are going to use hair appliances, such as hairdryers or irons, etc, then you MUST use a heat-defence spray. This will not only protect your hair but keep away the humidity and tame frizzies. Missing out any of your three-step routine can be fatal for your hair, especially here in Tenerife. We have an intense heat to deal with, and it can truly destroy your hair if you’re not going to protect it. Don’t scrimp on your hair-care products but, then again, don’t go too mad. But if your shampoo costs less than your washing-up liquid, then maybe you need to think again. Buying a quality range will pay off in the long run and you will soon see the benefits. So remember my good hair-care routine - cleanse, condition protect - and you won’t go wrong.

By Ruth Benson DESIGNER Jean Paul Gaultier celebrates his 40th year in fashion this year.

And the Frenchman launches his new exhibit, The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier; from the sidewalk to the catwalk. He has been looking over the last four decades in fashion and, also, the impact he has made with his designs and his own unique personality. The exhibit is being shown all over the world and comes to London later this year. Jean Paul, who will be 62 on Thursday, has definitely made his mark as a recognised designer, as well as turning up on our Channel 4 programme Eurotrash. He started in fashion in the early Seventies and launched his own brand back in 1976, menswear in 1983, perfume in 1993 and haute couture in 1997. His most iconic fashion statement, probably, was worn by Madonna on the 1990 Blonde Ambition Tour. The pointy bra he describes as being inspired by a “Thirties cabaret show” he had seen in 1985 in New York. Gaultier admits he prefers to design for women rather than men, yet he does enjoy designing

fashion for the latter when he can “show the feminine part”! This has led to his famous outfits for males, such as the corset - and David Beckham’s sarong in the mid-Nineties. His 2014 exhibition features over 160 couture and legendary garments, worn from the early Seventies to the present day. Included are the legendary outfits, as mentioned from Madonna’s tour, as well as pieces from Kylie Minogue

tours. The exhibition has already been seen in Montreal and New York and has become the world’s most popular fashion display, with over a million people having already visited. He says, when asked about his designs: “Fashion is not liberated at all. Now we are more in a moment where things are very classic, very conservative. I think it is a reflection of the society we are. I am against it you know…” And from previous collections, you can definitely say that is true.

Montesdeoca’s golden cheese ADEJE’S Montesdeoca Dairy took the plaudits at Tenerife’s annual Pinolere Cheese Fair held in the Parque Etnográfico de Pinolere at La Orotava.

The family-run company scooped gold for its one-year cured, mature cheese when it was named Best Tenerife Cheese for 2014. A proud Daniel Montesdeoca said: “This is an important award for us as it is the result of hard work and effort. “We have always given

priority to producing cheeses of high quality, which people will select and enjoy for their flavour and texture.” Daniel was “delighted” that their cheeses were appreciated by so many people. And he promised that they would continue to work

to improve the product and ensure that the Island’s cheeses were

known both here and outside Tenerife. Adeje Agriculture

Councillor Esther Rivero Vargas said. “The Pinolere fair is the perfect setting for displaying all the Island’s natural produce and, of course, promoting the chees- making industry and culture, which has been recognised with this award.” The Montesdeoca Dairy makes a variety of cheeses, including smoked, semi-cured, cured, gofio and pepper cheeses. Not forgetting its golden prize-winner. If you fancy tasting the family’s cheeses, you can buy them at their Tijoco dairy, or at the Adeje Farmers’ Market every weekend.

By Monica Dyson MAYA ANGELOU, author of The Colour Purple, said: “It is only out of ignorance that people are cruel because they really don’t think that it will come back! In other words: “What goes around, comes around!”

I have heard remarks lately about the gay marriage reforms. One particularly venomous one described it as an abomination. Now, I can think of many things I could describe as an abomination, cruelty being at the top of the list. But love between two people, whatever their sexual persuasion, who do not hurt anyone else by it, would not be one of them. Most people conform to our ideal of kindliness and friendliness. Most are basically good, and wouldn’t hurt a fly. They are filled with a sense of compassion when they see pictures of animals or children being ill-treated, or of

18th April 2014 - 24th April 2014

Why are people so cruel? victims of war or disaster. Sometimes, people can be hypocritical. Oh, they would be horrified if they were not seen to be good neighbours or good Christians. But that would often depend on who actually moved to live next door to them, or sat next to them in church! But now and again, you meet a person who is just not nice. And sometimes, just plain evil. We all have outbursts of rage, indignation or annoyance. Some of us are more volatile than others, but it doesn’t usually manifest itself into actual violence or cruelty. Sometimes, allowances are made for people’s behaviour. They might say; “He’s got very low self-esteem, suffers from stress, needs anger management.” But surely nothing excuses actual cruelty, and I’m afraid we seem to be reading about more and more of it every day. Recently, a UK soldier avoided jail over disgusting racial Facebook comments about the murder of a Pakistani toddler in Scotland. The judge said that because he had been brought up as a racist, he had been taught to feel hatred for nonwhite people. This is someone we have defending our country! Giving the racist a 16week suspended prison

sentence would seem that we are becoming a society in which, soon, all crimes will be justified by some social, psychiatric or psychological reasons. Do you smoke because your parents do, or become a singleparent family because your mother was! Surely, part of growing up is developing a mind of your own? This case seems like British justice at its best! And are we to believe that it is a case of nurture over nature? That the environment in which we are brought up plays a larger role than genetics in shaping our personality? A recent example of this was the family described as the mosthated family in America - that of Fred Phelps (pictured), founder of the Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas, who spent his life spewing out hate against homosexuals right up to his death a week or so ago. The “teachings” of his church, which caused pain and insult to thousands of innocent people, included attending military funerals with placards which bore

the words: “Thank God for dead soldiers” or “God hates fags”. He and his followers believed that soldiers who died in conflicts like Afghanistan were being punished for fighting for a nation doomed in the eyes of God for its tolerance of homosexuality. The church is still in existence, with his offspring and their offspring carrying on his hate-filled doctrines, interpreting the Bible in their own way, having been brought up to believe that abuse is, somehow, kindness. America has been good at nurturing hatred. Many of its socalled Christians developed the slave trade, using the Bible to justify it, and even joining

the Ku Klux Klan. Throughout history there have been some unspeakably-evil people. The list of the most evil people of all time includes Idi Amin, Attila the Hun, Pol Pot, Ivan The Terrible, Adolf Eichmann, Adolf Hitler and Stalin. They have all perpetuated genocide against humanity on an extremely large scale. There are many others of course. Hate is a very powerful emotion. And it’s usually linked with the desire for power, against those too weak to stand up for themselves. The Nazis, Apartheid in South Africa, ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, Rwanda, persecution of black people in America … history

archives centuries of cruelty. Of course, you don’t have to look to historical figures to find cruelty. It is all around us in our everyday life. Vulnerable people in our society are exploited, humiliated, abused and killed, often by people in positions of authority. Unbelievably, the extremely light sentence against a British man and his family who horribly tortured and abused a vulnerable young man working for them was not increased. What sort of message does that give? And why in today’s society was there no one to care what happened to the young man anyway? Children in schools are subjected to bullying, often so severe that there have been many reports of suicides. There can’t be many weeks when you can pick up a newspaper and not find an account of a baby or small child being cruelly killed, usually by the person nearest to them, or of care workers abusing those who cannot look after themselves. We hear of historic abuse by celebrities and clergy. It’s nothing new. Last week there were reports of a young woman being beheaded and another dowsed in petrol and set alight in two separate incidents in the UK. Animals are cruelly tortured. Recently, a kitten was killed after being cooked in a microwave. People call fox-hunting and badger-baiting sport. No, I’m sorry, Gay marriage? Society has much more to worry about than the relationship between two loving members of it.

OUR sponsored walk in Los Cristianos on Sunday was a great success, many people joining in with their own dogs - or one of our many animals still in the refuge. One really special dog, Sylvie, who has just three legs, joined us

on the walk and she is such a sweetie that she would make somebody very happy. Sylvie has had an awful lot of trauma in her life and would love a special home. If you think you may be interested in adopting her, please call the

Jigging about to hook the winner BOATS and kayaks will compete in a pro-am fishing contest using the jigging method from San Miguel Marina on Sunday. It will also involve deep-sea fishing and coastal angling and the event, the first of its kind at this venue, has been organised by the Marina’s fishing

and navigation club Erales. The seven-hour contest, which starts at 8.30am, is expected to attract around 30 entries and will be held in the area between the Marina and the Punta Scratch lighthouse, Granadilla. Entry is 30 euros and you can register at the Marina office right up to 8am on the day.

number below for more information on her. All the dogs had a super time, receiving lots of fuss and attention from the public. We handed out leaflets about Accion del Sol and raised awareness to the animals’ plight here in Tenerife. How to win friends Fifty children from the Las Rosas College visited the refuge last week to learn about animal welfare. They collected sheets and blankets for our four-legged inmates, which were very much appreciated by the dogs and puppies alike. Mami’s brave show On Saturday, an extremely brave Mami cat visited the refuge to help the children learn about caring for cats. The dogs were all wellbehaved and their guest

enjoyed her little visit, as did the children. If you would like to help in any way, like blankets, towels, sheets, dog toys, collars, leads, or maybe even volunteer as a dog-walker, please contact the number below, or email teneriffa@akiontier.org Refuge opening times Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday: 2-5pm. Saturday: 1-4pm (this week, Saturday Children’s Club, and all are welcome) The refuge is closed on Wednesday and Sunday, and on Public Holidays. Please call 922 778 630 for more information. How to find us The refuge is situated at Granadilla’s Industrial Estate, Exit 51 on the TF-1, directly next to the ecological park ITER, which houses the windmills.

Sangha Sanctuary needs a little lift OVER the past few years, we have needed to re-home animals other than dogs. They included a couple of baby goats found by the motorway, an unwanted pot-bellied pig, and, most recently, an unusual breed of rabbit. Thankfully, we work closely with the idyllic Sangha Sanctuary in San Miguel, where Mark carefully tends to his many animals and birds, including sheep, ducks, chickens and even an iguana. We are helping Mark to get the right permissions needed to formally open the sanctuary, which we also refer to as an educational farm, to the public. To achieve this, certain improvements need to be made, so we are holding a charity event on Wednesday, 7th May, at Rendezvous Restaurant, Golf del Sur, where a delicious three-course dinner will be served, as well as some entertainment from Colin Stevens, Suzy q, Abba

Just wild about Murano!

By Jav NISSAN will unveil their thirdgeneration Murano at the New York Motor Show, in preparation for its general release later in the year.

It starts today (Friday) and this latest model carries on with the company’s now-familiar look of other newcomers to their current range. That means there are big similarities between the new Murano, the latest Qashqai and the recently-launched Nissan X-Trail. The Murano has the same boomerang-shape lights, the “V-Motion” nose and similarlysculpted bodywork. It comes with a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine, producing 260bhp, and an automatic gearbox as standard. No official economy figures are available, but Nissan claim it is up to 20% more efficient than the previous model, thanks to weight savings and a more aerodynamic design. The Murano will be available in four trim levels - S, SV, SL and range-topping Platinum - with all cars offering a choice of two or four-

wheel drive and sporty 18 or 20-inch alloy wheels. Full LED lights will also be an option. There is plenty of technology available inside the cabin, with a touchscreen for the infotainment system, which allows for fewer of the bewildering buttons and switches and, thus, creating a cleaner, lesscluttered dashboard. Standard features include dual-zone climate-control and Nissan’s “Intelligent Key, which enables you to open the car without taking the key out of your pocket. Wow, that WILL save some time! The new Murano can incorporate up to four onboard cameras and

three radar systems for a range of optional driver aids, such as blindspot warning, predictive forward-collision warning and intelligent cruise control. There’s also a new cross-traffic alert system, which can detect approaching vehicles when the car is reversing out of a parking space. Nissan withdrew the previous Murano from sale in Britain in 2011, but, so comfortable are they with the reborn model that they are considering reintroducing the car there. From a practical point of view, this GT-R is as thrilling to drive as ever, even though it has been

tuned for comfort, especially for daily driving. But t still has that raw appeal and blistering performance, and the looks are brutish. Few cars are as fast and composed, while the sophisticated four-wheel-drive system makes it a true supercar for all seasons, with a £78,020, price tag to match. Ever since its 2008 debut, this hi-tech machine has been subjected to continual development as Nissan strive to make the most of the GT-R’s huge performance potential. However, after years of chasing faster lap times and quicker acceleration, their focus has switched to comfort, re-

finement and everyday usability. That means a recalibrated suspension setup, improved sounddeadening, lighter steering at low speeds and a less-fierce brake pedal. It still feels like a wild thing, however, and no wonder. Performance from the twin-turbo 3.8-litre V6 is explosive, with the 0-62mph sprint taking just in

2.7secs, while the sixspeed twin-clutch gearbox serves up rapid-fire shifts. As ever, the GT-R’s ability rip through a series of corners will leave your head spinning. There’s plenty of grip, decent steering feel and, with the stability control on, almost unbreakable traction. Overall, you will not be disappointed with this upgrade.

Key Specs Price: £78,020 Engine: 3.8-litre V6 twin-turbo Power: 542bhp Torque: 632Nm Transmission: Six-speed semi-auto, auto, fourwheel drive

Driving yourself to distraction By Emma at Motorworld

M O D E R N - DAY cars are being fitted with more and more gadgets which can, in some cases, become distractions.

On the TF-1 motorway here, travelling at the speed limit of 120km/h, the car is moving at around 34m a second. This means that even the smallest distraction

could prove fatal. Here are some other distractions: *Lighting a cigarette takes around four seconds, which is the equivalent of a 136-metre stretch in which your attention has been elsewhere. *Changing the channel on the radio or changing a CD takes around six seconds, which is the equivalent of 272m. *Dialling a telephone number takes around 13 seconds, which is the equivalent of 442m. A lot can happen in such a short time - and that safety gap you might have had can be gone in the few seconds you take your eyes of

the road. Safety features Some of the more common safety features on today’s cars might not seem like much, but others help to avoid some 65% of fatal accidents. Some of the simpler and more common features are: *ABS (Anti-Braking System): This system helps to avoid the wheel from locking up (stopping from turning) and, in turn, to avoid skidding. This means that the wheel will still be turning and you will still have the ability to steer. *ISOFix anchoring points: These are

used to secure childrestraint systems in cars. They are anchoring points which are secured to the car’s chassis, either bolted on or welded and, in turn with the relevant ISOFix seat, they create a rigid connection between the seat and the car. *Seat Belt Pre-tensioners: These are small explosive charges which come into force in the event of a heavy accident. When deployed, they remove all the slack from a car’s seatbelt; thus keeping the occupant in the correct seating position and then allowing the airbags to do their job

correctly. *ESP (Electronic Stability Programme): It is known more commonly at the Electronic Stability Control. It is a system which corrects under-steer and oversteer on cars, working hand in hand with the ABS and traction control. It senses the onset of a slide or a rapid change in direction, and sends more power to certain wheels while applying the brakes to others. *TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring Sensors): These sensors are used to detect a rapid loss of pressure in one or all of the tyres, which allows the driver to slow

down and stop to avoid a blow-out, which can cause loss of steering. *Head restraints: There are not head-rests, as some people believe. They are actually used to limit one’s head movement in the event of an accident - and a correctly-adjusted head restraint can help prevent whip-lash. *SBR (Seat Belt Reminder): This sensor tells the driver that he/ she or a passenger has yet to connect the seat belt. *LDWS (Lane Departure Warning System): This does what it says it does, advising the driver that he/she has exited a lane without indicating.

No Ayoze? No problem!

By Roscoe

Eibar 1 CD Tenerife 2 IN the build-up to Tenerife’s trip to second-place Eibar, head coach Alvaro Cervera said something telling: “Believe me we are not a one-man team.” And boy, was he right!

Tenerife lined up without wonderkid Ayoze Perez, and numerous scouts made a wasted journey, but it didn’t matter. One of the joys of watching this Tenerife team is that you never know what side are going to emerge from the tunnel. It’s very Forrest Gump. The loss of Ayoze led to a change of system, and it was certainly something Eibar hadn’t prepared for. Instead of playing with a whippet-lump axis of Ayoze and Aridane, it was the whippet-lump combination of Nano and Juanjo. But without the ‘No.10’. Cervera went with two deep, holding midfielders, Sanz and Ricardo, with Quique just in Position

second. The turnaround brought a turnaround of fortune. Seven minutes into the second half and Tenerife got their equaliser through Bruno, the local lad who is dividing opinions at the moment. He is out of contract at the end of the season and, apparently, has no desire to sign an extension. In short, he’s been offered something tasty. Yet he is a local lad and is Tenerife through and through, so it must be from La Liga. And since his form is solid, there is no reason to not play him. His attitude on the park is fine, and goals like this one just cement that point. But why does he not even want to discuss a contract? Tenerife’s goal brought

a change to the home side and first Diego, then Brazilian Gomes came on as Eibar changed formation. As they attacked, they thought Tenerife would drop deeper. But Cervera had an ace up his sleeve. Do you remember in Rocky 2 when Balboa is getting smashed to pieces and Mickey is screaming “Now Rocky, switch, switch”? Well just like Rocky, Cervera made his move. He brought on Suso, Cristo and Aridane and reverted to the traditional shape. The problem for Eibar was plain to see. They expected defence, and we all know what the best form of defence is. With Cristo in particular making a difference, Aridane’s winner for Tenerife 15 minutes from time was no surprise. They still had to weather some dicey moments late on, but they got through it and earned another massive three points. They are now past the safety barrier of 50, which was the initial target for the season. It brought back memories of a comment the late Emlyn Hughes said of his time at Liverpool. “Every season we set little goals. The first was to avoid relegation. Then get a top-10 finish. Then European qualification and, finally, the title. Small steps, but important ones in a long season.” So why not Tenerife?

They are now safe. With eight games to go, they have a two-point cushion in the play-offs (remember, Barca B do not count) and are just four points off Eibar. And Tenerife have a superior head-to-head record on all the sides above them. This is what determines positions in the event of a tie on points. This weekend, CDT host a team I hate. Okay, that might be a little strong, but I really cannot stand Numancia. Especially their two former Tenerife players, Natalio and Julio Alvarez. For me, and many fans, they were the reason Tenerife went double-bubble relegation in 2010. They were a poisonous element in the dressing room, and while, of course, it wasn’t all their fault, they epitomised the situation. They clearly didn’t want to play for the shirt. They are going to get ‘The Treatment’ on Sunday. And boy, do they know it! The Numancia press office has kept them well hidden this week, and even local writers are barred from getting their thoughts on the Heliodoro return. I just wonder if we will hear about a little hamstring strain from the training ground… Meanwhile, Real Madrid, without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo, have bragging rights over Barcelona after winning the Spanish Cup Final on Wednesday. It was a thrilling match and even though Barca dominated, they applied little pressure to the Real goal. Man-of-the-match Angel di Maria gave the Madrid outfit a first-half lead and, but for some smart keeping, it would have been easily doubled. Barca poured forward in the second half but it took a Marc Bartra header from a corner to give them parity. Minutes later Bartra was the villain as his soft challenge on Gareth Bale couldn’t stop the Welshman, who waltzed in a wondergoal. In time added on, Neymar hit a post from 12 yards with the goal at his mercy.

Dreamers eye bronze spot AT the start of the season, Dreamers A couldn’t buy a win for love nor money, but they have been making up for that ever since.

Their awful earlyseason form left them in the relegation zone, but, as we enter the business end of the season, they are set to challenge for third place. It has been a remarkable turnaround for the Los Cristianos mob, who beat Treehouse A to make it six straight wins at home. But they had to work for it. It was honours even at 4-4 after the

second set, but Dreamers finished well. They will be chasing down that top-three finish - and we will know more about them after their showdown with runaway leaders Tenerife Hammers A on Tuesday. The defending champions warmed up with a routine win over old foes Palms A, who took an age to get going. But the 9-3 scoreline was a little tough on Palms. Gaffers A have to keep going and hope for some miracle if they are to win the league. They got back to winning ways at home against Exiles A, while Inn The Pink A maintained their fine home form. Phoenix Knights were

But, thanks to some poor finishes (Mal), Terrace’s threw the match in the bin. With Bar La Caña B’s results expunged, there is a slightly different look to the Division Two table.

The 9-3 win was partly down to Guv Shai’s treble! There is a genuine four-way battle for third place and, suddenly, Terrace B are in the mix. Their fine point at Exiles B made it seven unbeaten, and they have an excellent run-in. Blair Bear’s Exiles hold third spot at the moment, but they face Pink B and

Palms B in the next few weeks. James Place worked hard to win at Toscales B and are well placed in fourth, while Bluebell B also sneaked home at Hoppys Bar. Treehouse B returned from Puerto Colon with a shock three points at Kandi Lounge, and Picasso’s were good value for the 8-4 win at TPT. Finally, 2JZ’s consolidated their seventh place with a 7-5er over Dreamers B.

It’s a No-no for Yaya and Co WITH just a handful of games left, we are now into the home straight for the 2013-14 football season. But managers can’t even contemplate booking summer holidays yet! In the world of fantasy football, it was generally a low point-scoring week. But with three Crystal Palace players in the Team of the Week, it was one for the skilful

managers. Sometimes it pays to stay away from the crowd - and those who had “big guns” like Luis Suarez, Yaya Toure and Fernando Torres struggled. At the top of the Fantasy League, long-time leader Steve Schofield had a decent week and leads Andy Palmer by 49 points - and I’m not sure there are enough games left to bridge the

gap. As for the Team of the Week, Warren Wilson get’s this week’s hattip with an excellent 90 points. Palace duo Ward and Puncheon gave him a super 33 points, which proved that big points can be earned at the smaller clubs. It was a similar story in the battle of the Oasis Fm DJs as his Palace connection saw Roscoe rocket past Chris

Elkington and move up to a season-high 16th. Now, he’s just 38 points behind Adi Benson with all to play for. This week sees an intriguing set of matches, with some big teams against the smaller fry. But will the big names fire, or is this another week for managers to dip into left-field and pick up some quality bargains?

A Bullseye for Showtime again

THE legendary event that is the Oasis Fm Darts League Presentation Night rolled into town last Friday at Showtime, Las Americas.

And, I am pleased to say, the legend lives on! A crowd of 220 darters, family and friends enjoyed a fantastic evening, which included some great darts, plenty of ale, top-notch grub and a real-life love train! More on that later. The show kicked off with the Ladies Memorial Trophy between Anna (Bar Amistad) and Julie (Naughty Nautas) in a repeat of last season’s final. With plenty of support from a vociferous audience, the girls put on a fine performance with Julie, who held her nerve at 1-1, taking the winner’s trophy. Moving on to Division 2, a tense battle ensued between Graeme of league champions Tenerife Sun, and Matt, from secondplaced Emerald Shamrocks. Matt is an extremely animated player, and his jig around the stage after he took

out the winning double was a sight to see. Most entertaining! A short break in proceedings, during which we were fed like kings, included top vocalists North and South, the male and female duo. A good number of us were up on our feet, dancing to the music, when North and South began belting out the Ojays’ classic Love Train. At one point, the conga - or love train - went

at least halfway round the room, which was a sure sign that the wine had started to kick in. Bonkers! Some normality resumed with the Division 1 Memorial Trophy between Rob (Bar 180 C) and young Bryn (Chipeque pool bar). Bryn looked to be struggling early on as Rob took the first leg, but he steeled himself and came back strongly to claim the cup. A star for the future is our Bryn, and a thoroughly nice lad. He was later awarded another trophy for the League’s Most Improved Player. Next up, the Premier League big boys. The smart money was on previous winner Tom (Palms Sports Bar). But Del Boy, from Ourplace Naturals, had also won the event a few years back and was not going down easily. And so it proved as Del used his greater experience, helped by Tom’s missed doubles, to win this cup for a second time. With the darting action concluded, it was time for the silverware to be dished out. No fewer than 52 trophies were given to those

teams and individuals who had been successful throughout the campaign. And I can tell you some of them were a bit wobbly as they climbed the stage to collect their nice shiny cups! The evening rounded off with a huge raffle of kindly-donated prizes. Cue more wobbly people on stage! All the proceeds from this and the Memorial Trophy entry fees are always given to a worthy cause, and this year was no exception. The 1,644 euros raised will be donated to the Aaron Tyler Bannister fund to help with his fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy. A big thank-you to everyone for that. So, another brilliant and hugely-entertaining evening came to a close. Thanks to all who came to support the event, and to those who helped out with behind-the-scenes stuff. But wait, you can do it all again next season! With new sponsors Express Bar Deliveries coming on board, the League is sure to go from strength to strength. Let’s play darts!

PREMIER LEAGUE PREVIEW

By Adi Benson AFTER an amazing few days, Liverpool are in pole position to win their first Premier League title.

They have won 10 games in a row, but have they got four more wins in them? Chelsea could still nick the title if they win at Anfield, while City have gone wrong at the worst possible time. Spurs v Fulham (Saturday, 12.45pm) If anything, Spurs have been most entertaining since Tim Sherwood took over the managerial role. Last week they were three goals down against West Brom and looked dead and buried. But they somehow scraped a draw, which just about sums up their recent form. Fulham have given themselves hope and are just two points from safety. A win is essential in this game. Prediction: Draw West Ham v C Palace (Saturday, 3pm) A disappointing result against Arsenal in midweek for the Hammers will see them anxious to take something from this clash They would have wanted a top-10 finish from their season, especially after invest-

ing heavily in the summer. Meanwhile, Palace are flying! They appeared out of it before Christmas, but Tony Pulis has performed miracles and is surely battling Brendan Rodgers for the Manager of the Season award. With Jason Puncheon pulling the strings, they could make it three wins in a week. Prediction: Away win Newcastle v Swansea (Saturday, 3pm) I am not sure why Newcastle bother to turn up because the players seem to have been on holiday for some weeks. Alan Pardew has been told his job is safe, but the fans are becoming disgruntled with the on-pitch performances and, on paper, this should be an easy win for them. Swansea are still not safe, just three points above the drop zone, but they will take heart from their performance against Chelsea. But something is wrong at the club, as last week’s training ground bust-up demonstrated. Not a match to put the mortgage on. Prediction: Away win Cardiff v Stoke (Saturday, 3pm) A win last weekend will have given Cardiff a little bit of hope that they can beat the drop, especially as they know Norwich are vulnerable and that Fulham have a tricky game. A win could, depending on how many goals

Norwich concede, move them out of the bottom three. However, Stoke are going great guns. Mark Hughes has them playing decent football, and it has got them results. A win this weekend and a poor result for Newcastle could see them as high as ninth. Prediction: Away win Aston Villa v Soton (Saturday, 3pm) Angry Villa fans are asking for a change of management - and this week various members of the coaching team – not the manager - have been suspended. It doesn’t bode well for the club and they will just want to get to the end of the season. They should be safe as there are worse teams than them, but it has not been the best of campaigns. Southampton were criticised by their man-

ager last weekend for being toothless in attack, and that should spur the players on to prove a point this weekend. Prediction: Away win Chelsea v Sunderland (Saturday, 5.30pm) Chelsea’s performance against Swansea last weekend was poor but they ground out three points and are still bang in the title race, despite what Jose says! Their focus must be on the Champions League semi-final, but they will top the league tomorrow if they win. Sunderland are not to be taken lightly, as Man City can testify. But while I cannot see them surviving, they at least are having a go at staying up, and that is all the fans ask for. Prediction: Home win Norwich v Liverpool (Sunday, midday) Of all the teams in the

relegation battle, Norwich have the worst run-in. They chose to get rid of their manager with just a few games to go, and it could cost them their Premier League status. They will not be relishing this game and it will just be a case of keeping it as tight as possible, if they concede too many goals, they could drop into the bottom three. Liverpool will be flying high, confidencewise, after their victory against Man City, and they are fully aware of being just four games away from their first Premiership crown. But for the first time, they have the weight of expectation on their shoulders, and it will be interesting to see how they cope. Norwich have nothing to lose and will go for it. Prediction: Away win

Hull v Arsenal (Sunday, 2.05pm) A dress-rehearsal for the FA Cup Final, but Hull have home advantage and will be looking to get one over Arsenal and, maybe, give themselves a physiological advantage before the Wembley clash. They have been steady at home and that has ensured their Premier status. They invested in the January transfer window and it worked for them. Arsenal got back to winning ways on Tuesday night and will also be looking for the victory - and the advantage. The Gunners are back in pole position for the Champions League and I can’t see them slipping up. Prediction: Away win Everton v Man Utd (Sunday, 4.10pm) I imagine Everton fans will be looking forward to this one, if only to give a certain Mr Moyes a little stick. I hope they remember all the good work he did for the club, and save the “welcome” for Fellaini! Everton slipped up big-time on Wednesday and must bounce back. United are chasing a Europa League place and the players will want to make it a happy return to Goodison for their manager. And it’s worth remembering that United still have the league’s best away record! Prediction: Home win Man City v West Brom (Monday, 8pm) City have had a horrible week. They were a little unlucky to lose at Liverpool. It took them until half-time to wake up at Anfield, but, once level, they should have gone on to win. They were denied a stonewall penalty - and it wasn’t much better against Sunderland. So on Monday they MUST win. Nothing else will do! West Brom are becoming really good at throwing away threegoal leads. They should be safe by now, but their slip-ups have left them still in trouble. Playing on a Monday will help as they will have seen their rivals’ results. But they may then realise they need to get something at Eastlands, and, on City’s current form, they may fancy their chances. Prediction: Home win
