The Cucaracha Club World Premier Thursday March 10th was a night that will go down in Torrevieja's history books as the city's first fully International Crowd Funded film, the Cucaracha Club received its world premiere in the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre. Putting aside a few technical and transportation hitches, the full house audience enjoyed a black tie event, complete with Red Carpet, to accompany the historic event. The Cucaracha Club is about a team of retired spies, who now enjoy the good life on the Costa Blanca. They are called back into action in order to find two kidnapped children and on route, the film crew have been making best use of the fantastic scenery and locations along the entire coast, with the idea that the film will also become a stepping stone to other local productions and help boost tourism and knowledge of the area. Many cast members flew in especially from the UK and other parts of Europe especially for the event, including one of the film's start, Tom Watt (from EastEnders Lofty fame) who said he was proud of what writer Billie Anthony Gaddess and the entire team of the film had managed to produce in less than a year. He said it was magnificent and he too was proud to be a part of it as this new style of community filmmaking is for many, the way forward for TV and film production.

Torrevieja's population one hundred thousand inhabitants Torrevieja's new official population figure is now 98,034 residents. The Census and Statistics Department of the City of Torrevieja noted that city has right now 98,034 inhabitants. From the demographic point of view, the city remains the fifth largest in the Valencian Community. The new figures show a huge population drop since 2014 when the City Council made known that the municipality exceeded the 108,000 residents, However the National Statistics Institute (INE) then changed
their rules and made everyone that needed to reregister for the Padron or residencia, which lowered the figure to 91,000 residents. The INE, noted an official census of 105,000 residents in 2013, then confirmed what was an open secret during the second half of the last decade following the economic crisis: that the data registration of Torrevieja and reflection in the INE were inflated, especially because it had not carried out a process of updating and purging those from the Padron in a city with a
large floating population where residents also benefited from access to many free services, such as urban transport. More Spanish: This change has had another important consequence. Of the 98,000 residents, the city now has 50,971 Spanish, and for the first time in decades more than half are of Spanish nationality. Ten years ago the number of foreigners accounted for 53% of the census. Torrevieja remains a multinational city with more than 115 countries represented in the census. And in which the weight of the Central European and British residents has been slightly reduced at the expense of neighbouring Scandinavian presence plus those from Eastern Europe and Russia, and
the North African community. Moroccans, Romanians, Bulgarians and Ukrainians are increasingly important but show little impact economically on the community against British, Russian, German, Belgian and Irish, who are directly associated with residential tourism and the sale of housing plus owning business in the city. However, the INE have admitted that with the British alone, there may be upwards of 85,000 British and Irish homeowners in the city, basing their information on typical
British and Irish names, and this count has not dropped over the past half-decade. These home owners have primarily second homes in Spain and many see zero advantage of joining the Padron and going through the hassle of residencia unless they require a SIP card for medical purposes. With the upcoming EU Referendum for the UK in June, Torrevieja along with many other parts of Spain is waiting to see if this has any impact at all in terms of people returning to the UK, or more people coming to Spain.

Torrevieja Symphony Orchestra Concert March 19th Next Saturday, March 19th, is Father's Day in Spain and at 7:00pm in the International Auditorium of Torrevieja, the Torrevieja Symphony Orchestra, in collaboration with the Municipal Orfeón Ricardo Lafuente, will play their third concert of the year: Mozart: Requiem, and his Symphony No 40. Soloists who will perform include the soprano Olga Arbenina, torrevejense tenor Francisco Moreno, Olga Guseva contralto and bass Pedro Garcinuño. Tickets can be purchased through http://www.instanticket.com or space permitting, at the box office window on the night. Symphony No. 40 in G minor was composed by Mozart in 1788, being his penultimate symphony, and one of the only 2 composed in minor mode. Despite not being particularly innovative in the technical section, it is one of the most performed works of Mozart, and the most admired for its romantic character and depth of the dramatic feelings that manages to convey. The Requiem Mass in D minor K . 626 was left unfinished due to his death in 1791. It is said that was completed by a pupil of Mozart, Süssmayr, although the widow, Constanze, preferred to leave this collaboration
anonymous for fear that the success of her husband could be clouded. Although Mozart only completed in
full the first two movements, it is believed that gave directions to his pupil for the composition of the rest.
Torrevieja Youth Fair Continuing on from the successful and annual Youth Fairs organised by the former PP government, the new Pentapartido council continue the trend although this week's event is the smallest to date. This week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, a total of 45 organizations will be gathered at the Virgen del Carmen Cultural Centre were they will provide information and resources for visitors in the areas of youth training, employment, entrepreneurship and opportunities for work and education throughout Europe. This is the fifth consecutive year that this popular exposition for youth in Torrevieja and its area of influence, has been held. “The fundamental purpose is twofold” explained Councillor for Youth Pablo Samper: "On the one hand it's intended as a meeting place between related training and employment organizations and those who wish to undertake training as an essential step to quality jobs, and on the other hand we want to introduce the institutions and resources to those who might benefit.” The Youth Fair aims help with professional development,
especially through information and individual and group counselling, with special emphasis on support and the promotion of entrepreneurship, along with career guidance for young people and for those looking for work, information on job placement, educational opportunities, youth participation and resources for youth. The fair is from 9:00am to 2:00pm and from 4.00pm to 7.00pm on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9.00am until 2.00pm. The ADL, the Local Development Agency will also be present as well as the employment workshop 'Laguna', which has been able to prepare many of their students for employment.. Councillor Samper stressed the need to promote this type of activity from the government, through concrete measures and actions aimed at reducing youth unemployment. Among the companies and organizations that have their own stand at this fair including associations and universities are various Vocational Training institutes, Health Cantres, Municipal Schools, ADL, SERVEF, CIAJ and the water company Agam along with information on employment offers and recruitment procedures.

Firefighters celebrate their patron with a gastronomic feast
On Sunday, March 6th, the feast of St. John of God, patron of the Fire Department, which although falls on Tuesday the 8th, was held to coincide with the weekend. The kitchen enclosure became a makeshift area for the 'comings and goings of chefs' who produced several paellas and large 'fidegüas' as well
as some different dishes for smaller and homemade desserts that by all accounts, were scrumptious. Meanwhile, visitors enjoyed a choice of "cocinillas" and what seemed to be endless snacks that made the wait for the main course more bearable. Not wanting to miss the
commemoration, Torrevieja's Mayor, José Manuel Dolon and councillors Javier Manzanares and Carmen Morate also attended along with the Head of the Torrevieja Unit, Andres Igualada, who told the mayor what it means for Torrevieja to have a fire station that serves the community today. Once the various dishes were cooked they were handed out to over a hundred people, including the firefighters and their families, all of whom finished their plates and gave a thumbs up for the tasty dishes. Igualada later paid tribute to those retiring and presented them plaques of recognition and quality watches as a souvenir of their dedication and work with the firefighting teams of Torrevieja. The day continued with various leisure
activities and games for children. The Torrevieja unit has forty professionals assigned there and overseeing area is Chief of Operations, José Mira. This centre is part of the Fire Consortium Provincial Council, and equipment wise has 1 Heavy Urban pump; 1 Heavy Rural Pump; 1 Heavy Fire engine; 1 Auto staircase; 1 Forest vehicle; 1 Comparable vehicle for transport and 1 command vehicle. Their activities are confined to the municipality of Torrevieja, although in specific cases they cover anywhere needed in the Vega Baja who coordinate their actions.

Renamed Facebook page builds on highly popular ‘Brits living in Spain’ Since its launch two years ago, the British Embassy’s ‘Brits living in Spain’ Facebook page has become a very popular and lively forum for unbiased information and debate on many important aspects of life in Spain. Now renamed ‘Brits in Spain’, the page better reflects its followers, who include the many who live here as well as some who visit. Topics include how to register to vote in the EU referendum, where to get an EHIC, tips on learning Spanish and navigating Spanish officialdom, places to visit and news from the Embassy, amongst many others.
Why the change in name? Simon Montague, Director of Communications at the Embassy, explains: “We are really pleased that so many people are ‘liking’ our Facebook page and actively using it to discover and share valuable information. “Three quarters of our 18,300 followers are in Spain, but a quarter are in the UK. So as well as acting as a popular forum for fulltime residents, we also want to extend a welcome to the many thousands of Brits who have a second home here, and those who visit year after year on holiday.” In a recent Embassy survey of British residents, 72% who followed the Embassy’s Facebook page said it helped them integrate into life in Spain. Here are some of their reasons for ‘liking’ it: “I feel more knowledgeable about living in Spain through following the Facebook feed. When you hear rumours about laws changing, you can always count on this page to confirm them, or receive correct information. “I use it for friends or family who are coming here.” “It points me in the direction of useful things, which I then pin to my save list to access whenever I need to.” “I follow the page mainly for the
photos and info on places to visit.” “I find your articles very interesting.” Mr Montague adds: “If you want to benefit from independent advice and others’ experiences, then do follow us. Simply search for ‘Brits in Spain’ on Facebook and ‘like’ our page.” ‘Brits in Spain’ is a sister channel to the Embassy’s ‘UKinSpain’ Facebook channel, which focuses on institutional and political information and publishes in Spanish. Britons who are Twitter fans and want to keep up with the latest news from the Consular network can also follow @BritsliveSpain, as well as the comments and thoughts of the British Ambassador on @SimonManleyFCO.

In or out: make your vote Count In a recent Press Release, Orihuela Costa’s political party C.L.A.R.O., which was founded 10 years ago on the principle that exercising the right to vote was a legitimate, democratic and essential way to defend our interests in relation to the local government of Orihuela, is putting forward their point of view about the upcoming EU In or Out referendum. They said: We think the same principle applies in relation to the 23 June referendum on the United Kingdom’s continuing membership of the European Union. The recent headline in an influential local newspaper “YOU COULD LOSE IT ALL” was directly addressed to the interests of British nationals living in Spain. It was the title of an article describing a UK government report on the consequences of a British decision to leave the EU. The report pointed out that the right to live and work in Spain, access to pensions, healthcare and public services, the right to start and run a business and several other rights, including the right to vote in local elections, that we take for granted and depend on are only guaranteed because of EU law. The report states that UK citizens resident abroad, among them those who have retired to Spain, would not be able to assume that these rights will be guaranteed if the UK were to leave the EU. At the very least, the report continues, any terms which the UK might seek for its own citizens in a negotiation to retain these rights would have to be offered to EU citizens wishing to come or stay in the UK. Such a “successor” negotiation would be a very complicated and no doubt lengthy process which would have to be carried out with several countries not
only Spain. Nor will these issues be of the highest importance and priority confronting the UK government in the event of a vote to leave the EU. What would happen in the meantime to basic issues like continuing the receipt of pensions and access to healthcare? These are issues of concern. They would presumably be sorted out with time but uncertainty and suspension of existing rights could be very damaging to British citizens resident here. Since in Orihuela Costa, British residents account for some 65% of the total population, what happens to the British in the event of a withdrawal from the EU would have consequences for the rest of the population. In this situation, C.L.A.R.O. URGES British nationals living in this area to VOTE IN THE REFERENDUM. The procedure for applying to register to vote for those who are not still on a voters register in the UK is fortunately relatively simple, especially for those who have a valid British passport and a National Insurance number. The application can be made on-line using the official site www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. The procedure
takes only a few minutes. The right to vote in the June referendum is limited to those who have left the UK less than 15 years ago. However, it is not clear how the electoral authorities define “left the UK”. Applicants are invited to give their own date of leaving the UK, without guidance as to what this means. Does it depend on the date of obtaining residence (residencia) in Spain or becoming a fiscal resident in Spain? In the light of this doubt, it would seem sensible to apply and leave it to the Electoral Authority to approve or reject your application. The arrangements for voting by post are also being relaxed. Normally, ballot papers are only sent to overseas voters 4 working days before the date of an election. With the efficiency of the local post here this would make it almost impossible to receive and return the ballot papers before the election. However, since the ballot paper on 23 June will involve expressing a choice between “leave” or “remain” the electoral authorities say they will be sending the ballot papers to those registered to vote by post up to a month before the date of the referendum. As we can already see, the decision facing voters in the UK is causing wide and passionate arguments. But what is and will be missing in the debate are some basic issues which affect those living and working here in Spain and hoping to continue to do so. The best way for us to defend our interests is by taking part in the vote. Remember, as in local elections, NO VOTE, NO VOICE and in the referendum, each vote will have the same weight and EVERY VOTE WILL COUNT.

The exhibition consists of 36 works including oil paintings on canvas and board - 6 - acrylic on paper - 14 - digital prints - 13 -
and vinyls - . 3 - In each of his works, Ros, reflects some of the movies that they have influenced his artistic work, both from the point of view of film language as pictorial. Five of these works were made in the late 2000s, while the others produced during 2015 and 2016. The style, according to the author, has been clearly influenced by the language of comics, as well as some Avant - garde of the early twentieth century such as expressionism. Juan Ros was born in 1962 in Torre Pacheco, Murcia. He graduated in 1985 in Fine Arts. During the academic years collaborated in several fanzines published in Murcia university environments, also making orders for design and signage for the municipality of Torre Pacheco, in Murcia.

During the 90s he alternated his work as a graphic designer, both public and private, with the publication of illustrations in several magazines, highlighting their collaboration in several numbers Attonitus, magazine graphic experimentation published by the universities of Murcia and Valencia. Late in the last decade he also held several solo exhibitions: - Exhibition of selected works, Barcelo Hotel Torre Pacheco - Living Breakwaters in Torrevieja,

What the hell have they done?
For more than a thousand years, the battlements of Matrera castle have withstood the alternating onslaughts of Moors and Christians, the pummelling of torrential rains and the tendrilled, reclaiming creep of nature. Today, however, the 2-metre-thick walls of the Andalusian fortress find themselves under a different, if equally ferocious, siege. A recently completed restoration project, intended to shore up the castle after its ruins were severely damaged by rains three years ago, has provoked an incredulous reaction from some locals and a Spanish conservation group. Photographs of the castle’s newly restored tower, in which new materials have been used to protect older stones and to return the hulk to its original shape and dimensions, have been mocked online and in the nearby town of Villamartín in Cádiz province. Local residents told Spain’s La Sexta channel they weren’t impressed, or, as one man put it: “They’ve got builders in rather than restorers and, like we say round here, they’ve cocked it up.” The Spanish heritage and conservation group, Hispania Nostra, was similarly critical – if slightly more measured in its language. “The ‘consolidation and restoration’ - as the architects involved call it - [is] truly lamentable and has left locals and foreigners deeply shocked,” it said. “Comments aren’t really necessary when you’ve seen the photographs. Foreigners have written to us saying
they can’t understand why these follies – better described as heritage ‘massacres’ – still go on. And that is indeed what they are.” Twitter, characteristically, has been rather more blunt. “It’s pretty clear that restorations of works of art in Spain always end up worse than the original,” wrote one user. Another reached for the hysterically weeping emojis as she, and others, invoked the poster child of recent, illfated Spanish restoration projects: the horrifically botched attempt by a devout elderly woman to undo the damage that time had done to Elías García Martínez’s 19th century fresco of Christ, Ecce Homo. “What the hell have they done to Matrera castle in Cádiz?” she asked. “And we thought Ecce Homo was bad!”
However, Carlos Quevedo, the architect who oversaw the restoration of the castle, which has been declared a heritage site of cultural interest, pointed out that the project had been painstaking, professional, and legal. “There were three basic aims behind it. To structurally consolidate those elements that were at risk; to differentiate new additions from the original structure – thus avoiding the imitative reconstructions that are prohibited by law; and to recover the volume, texture and tonality that the tower would originally have had.” While he declined to comment on the comparisons with Ecce Homo, he called for people to think a little more about the business of restoration before leaping to judgment. “As far as I’m concerned, opinions are always welcome and constructive criticism and debate are always enriching,” he said. “But I do think that some basic, accurate information can help avoid some of the prejudices that spring from a simple image.” Amid the outrage and the hilarity is the more serious issue of how Spain preserves its architectural heritage. In 2002, developers in Madrid knocked down the house belonging to the city’s patron saint, San Isidro. Eight years ago, following almost two decades of legal squabbling, Spain’s Supreme Court ruled that the over-restored Roman amphitheatre in the Valencian town of Sagunto should returned to its previously ruined state.
First baby born to Zika-infected Judge in Basque Country asked mother in Spain has no symptoms rape victim 'offensive questions'
The first baby to be born in Spain to a mother who had been infected with the Zika virus is out of danger and, for the moment, everything indicates that the child has not been affected by exposure to the disease, health service sources in Galicia have said. However, it has not yet been confirmed whether the new-born is suffering any after-effects. Doctors at the University of Santiago Hospital Complex are closely following the development of the youngster – who was also born prematurely – to avoid complications, the sources said. The mother, who has since “completely recovered” from the virus, discovered she had been infected when she went to the Santiago de Compostela hospital at the end of February because she was about to give birth prematurely. Routine tests showed that she might
have been exposed to the virus between the fourth and fifth month of her pregnancy, a time that coincided with a stay in Venezuela. Although she had gone for a check-up at the time after feeling unwell, medics in the South American country were not able to confirm her exposure to Zika. Thirty-eight Zika cases have been diagnosed in Spain up until Monday, according to the Spanish Health Ministry. Among them are two other pregnant women in Madrid and two more in Catalonia. The World Health Organization Emergency Committee has recently said that there is more and more evidence linking the virus to serious neurological diseases such as microcephaly – a condition when babies are born with abnormally small heads.
A Spanish judge is facing calls for her suspension after she asked a pregnant rape victim if she had 'closed her legs and female organs' during an alleged sexual assault. The victim is four months pregnant with her alleged attacker's unborn child, and had requested a restraining order against him at a local court in Vitoria, in Spain's Basque Country Judge María del Carmen Molina Mansilla proceeded to ask the young victim 'leading and offensive questions', local news reports. The female victim had filed a complaint against a man who she claims had raped and physically abused her several times, and requested a restraining order. When called to give her statement, the judge 'repeated questions to the victim on whether she made any attempt to resist aggression including asking her "did she close her legs firmly?" and "did
she close all of her female organs”. The Clara Campoamor Association, a campaign group for victims of gender crime, is now demanding a full investigation into Judge María del Carmen Molina Mansilla and has called for her suspension. A representative from the organisation told said that the judge 'showed obvious disbelief of the testimony of the victim'. 'She questioned her without allowing her to answer, asking leading and offensive questions,' Blanca Estrella Ruiz of the Clara Campoamor Association said.

According to the organisation, the judge has had several complaints filed against her from female victims of alleged sexual assaults.
Nicola Kuhn set for stardom
Torrevieja has a future tennis superstar in its mist. His name is Nicola Kuhn and he been making a name for himself on both sides of the Atlantic as possibly the most exciting tennis prospect of his generation. If he was still playing for Torrevieja and Valencia, both would possibly be champions of the region if not Spain, as the zone has other top ranked tennis players of both sexes that are on the verge of breaking into the professional ranks. Nicola trains at the Juan Carlos Ferrero academy and Juan Carlos, the former world number one said: “He is not even 16 years old yet but many are raving about Nicola Kuhn, a young man who was born in Germany but in the future will play for Spain.” One huge advantage that Nicola has is that the man in charge of his training is the former Spanish and World Number One Juan Carlos Ferrero. While Rafa Nadal approaches his thirties and his success on the court no longer is with the frequency of yesteryear, the lack of new blood to renew the needed enthusiasm for Spanish tennis is an issue that local fans worry about. However, with his change of alliance from Germany to Spain, there is no need for alarm for along with names like Pablo Carreño and Jordi Samper who are presently rising up the professional ranks, optimism is even higher for Nicola Kuhn as the great promise of the future for Spanish Tennis. Born in March 2000 in Germany, Kuhn
lives in La Mata, Torrevieja, Spain, He has lived in Torrevieja since he was three months old and although brought up through the Spanish system, he is naturally multilingual, well-travelled and perfectly poised to follow his dream and break into the professional game. Since he was very little, his tennis racket has been his passion and this has made him one of the most promising young tennis players in the world of men's tennis. Nicola announced last December that he would like to change his allegiance from his country of birth, Germany, with whom he was on the winning Junior Davis Cup team last year, and play for Spain. Nicola said: "I have been living here since childhood and I have always been excited to play for my country." Kuhn has already reached a creditable 47th in the world ranking at Under 18 level and he could soon obtain his first ATP point. Much of his success is based on the JC Ferrero Equelite Sport Academy, a training academy directed by Juan Carlos Ferrero where Kuhn, since 2012 has been training an average of seven hours a day in tennis, physical conditioning and sports psychology. But the work of their teachers does not finish there, because they also focus on him continuing his studies at the academy.

Back Stage with Nigel Burchill If you love the king of rock and roll, look no further. Nigel Burchill is an Elvis Tribute artist with a passion for bringing music and history of the world’s greatest star to life, its pure entertainment, great nostalgia and 100% rock and roll!! Nigel´s show tells the story of Elvis from his early years, his time in the army and the much loved films he made, an incredible amount of number one songs and of course the iconic costumes he wore. and you don´t have to remember the king to enjoy it- a real family show, this is entertainment for all ages, no need for heartbreak hotel, get ready to shake rattle and roll! The performance lasts an entire evening, includes the music and much, much more. From his rock and roll and gospel roots, to hit records, to the classic comeback, to the 70´s, Nigel spans the Kings’ entire career. Along the way he tells the story of Elvis, stories, snippets of information and facts and figures, all to build a picture of the greatest entertainer that ever lived. But what really makes each show unique is the audience, Nigel doesn´t just stand and sing, his act isn't a one sided love affair, Like the man himself, he interacts with the crowd; audience participation plays a big role in the experience. As Nigel says, “get on your blue suede shoes and get ready to jive, march, do the rock-a-hula, and act like a hound dog!” Nigel is based in Mazarron and performs for commercial businesses (i.e. bars, restaurants and pubs), private parties, fiestas, pool parties and anything in between all up and down the coast. Not for nothing is Nigel billed as "the Costas favourite tribute act”. Nigel started in the business when someone told him
he looked like ‘The King’ and asked him to sing an Elvis song on the karaoke. Naturally enough Nigel’s biggest influence is Elvis. He still gets butterflies whether he performs in front of six people or 10,000. A former bodyguard, Nigel has two best moments, once when his little boy saw Elvis on the TV and shouted ‘Daddy’ at the television and secondly when he sang to the cast of ‘Benidorm’ which he has done twice. His worst moment? The night when someone stole his bag with his stage boots in and he had to do the show in his trainer’s. “Embarrassing!” The best piece of advice Nigel received was from wellknown former local resident and artist Ricky Valence who told him “Elvis would be proud of you son - keep rock n’ roll alive”. Nigel’s advice is that anyone starting out in the business should always try and be themselves and not attempt to be someone else. Editor’s note: err.. I think you meant to say unless you’re a tribute act Nigel. You can view Nigel’s profile at artistsdirectspain.com/nigel-burchil – and book him direct on 605 180 894/654 843 011
After Hours at The AULD DUBLINER The Auld Dubliner is at Lomas Cabo Roig on the roundabout. Contact them on 602 436 455 and find out what they have going on at whatsoncostablanca.com/aulddubliner Tell us about yourselves My name is Damien and I am originally from Ireland where I spent over 30 years as a college lecturer in engineering and construction. I own and run the Auld Dubliner bar in Lomas Cabo Roig and have been living in Spain for 4 years. What made you open a bar? The opportunity arose to buy a wellestablished business along with my brother-in-law so we went for it. 2 years ago he wanted to move on so I continued alone. Now it is me plus my loyal staff Catherine, Donall and Rain. Where did the inspiration for the name come from? Well I may be ‘auld’ but I’m not from Dublin. However the bar was already long-established and was well-known by that name so I saw no reason to change it.
Who does the cooking? And how would you describe your style? At this time (winter) we are just doing sandwiches and snacks. However we are looking to do breakfasts and lunches in the summer. We had a part-time chef with us last summer and we’re hoping he’ll come back to us this year. What’s your favourite dish on the menu? Going back to last summer our chef did a lovely steak pie with chips. It was
basic but really tasty. Favourite day of the week? At this time of year definitely Saturday as there is so much going on. We show sports during the afternoon, including premier league football then in the evening we have karaoke with our resident host Sammy Starr. Always good fun. There are a couple of things I should add. One is that one of our staff members, Rain O’Connor, is a brilliant singer and entertainer in her own right and regularly hosts karaoke and entertainment nights here in the summertime. Leading on from that we step up the entertainment considerably during the summer months providing live entertainment or karaoke 7 nights a week in high season. This year we hope to include musical theme nights once a month or so; such as country nights, songs from films and musicals etc. Any interesting tales? Well despite the fact that we are very popular with holidaymakers during the
summer we are first and foremost a community bar catering for the residents in our area. We are used to some of our regulars having loads to drink (always behaving themselves I must add) and then stumbling out having forgotten to pay their bar bill. We never worry because we always know they’ll be back anxiously asking if they’ve forgotten to pay. The amusing thing is that sometimes they come back in the next day apologizing for forgetting to settle up and then hearing us tell them that it was ok as they actually HAD paid the night before. One of our summer residents comes in every day for breakfast. “Breakfast” consists, without fail, of a Smirnoff Ice followed by 2 Sambuca’s. Amazing thing is he never seems to get drunk!

What is Integral Yoga? “It’s called Integral Yoga, because we integrate everything: body, mind, and spirit.” “The goal of Integral Yoga, and the birth right of every individual, is to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversities in the entire creation and to live harmoniously as members of one universal family. This goal is achieved by maintaining our natural condition of a body of optimum health and strength, senses under total control, a mind well-disciplined, clear and calm, an intellect as sharp as a razor, a will as strong and pliable as steel, a heart full of unconditional love and compassion, an ego as pure as a crystal, and a life filled with Supreme Peace and Joy.” – HH SRI SWAMI SATCHIDANANDA The word “Yoga” means union or yoke in the ancient Sanskrit language. It is a perfect description of the science and philosophy of Integral Yoga. Integral Yoga® synthesizes the various branches of Yoga into a comprehensive life style system. The aim is to promote harmonious development of every aspect of the individual. The six branches of Integral Yoga® are each powerful tools to gain self-mastery. When combined to effect the whole being the results are at
once subtle, profound and measurable. Some basic descriptions of each of the six branches are listed here: Hatha Yoga focuses on the physical aspects through asanas (postures), pranayama (breath control), mudras, kriyas,
yogic diet, and deep relaxation. Raja Yoga Balance and control of the mind through ethical practices, concentration and meditation. Bhakti Yoga The path of devotion, by constant love, thought, and service of the Divine. Bhakti Yoga can be practiced by everyone. All that is needed is faith and constant remembrance of God. Karma Yoga The path of action and selfless service. Serving without attachment to the fruits (or results) of the action. Jnana Yoga The intellectual approach. Through the knowledge of what really exists, that is, what is not changeable, one who engages in the Path of Wisdom realizes Oneness with the entire Universe. Japa Yoga Japa means repetition of a mantram – a sound structure of one or more syllables which represents a particular aspect of the Divine Vibration.
A Way to Align the Body and Relieve Pain Rolfing is a method of structural integration accomplished by soft tissue manipulation and movement education. Developed in the 1950s by Ida Rolf, this bodywork method has allowed people to stand straighter, move better than ever and gain height through its focus on correcting tissue fixations. It is no secret that physical and emotional stress leaves its mark in the body via tight muscles, cramps, trigger points, aches and pains. Every time we have been in a stressful situation, our body has reacted by tightening up and holding that stress in the tissues. Every physical sprain or strain we have suffered is still locked into muscle memory. Is there any doubt as to why we suffer chronic pain, especially musculo-skeletal pain? There are many hands-on pain relief methods, such as massage, trigger point therapy,
reiki, stretching, physical therapy and others. Among these is Rolfing, which specializes in soft tissue release. Basically, by releasing the adhesions and scar tissue holding muscle, fascia and tendon locked into spasm, the body can be corrected and free motion returned. This is accomplished by direct deep pressure that a practitioner applies to the body of a client with their fist, fingers and elbows.
Rolfing may be painful for some because of the deep pressure and tearing actions used. However, the pain only remains while the treatment is in session. The pain is evoked by the pressure exerted into the adhered soft tissue areas. Once the adhesions are worked out, the pain subsides and the body is returned to normal ranges of motion and suppleness. Since Rolfers differentiate between good posture and correct body structure, they strive to organize the skeletal system that has been made "crooked" through injury and stress. By correcting the underlying structure of the body, and also removing adhesion of muscle and connective tissue, the body can realign and hold itself properly. And with proper structure and posture comes pain relief. Through Rolfing sessions people can expect to improve
flexibility, athletic performance, reduce swelling and pain, increase range of motion and correct posture. All types of performance improve and pain disappears when the muscles fire completely and rest completely. And this can only happen when the body is correctly aligned. You might be asking yourself how Rolfing is different than regular massage. The difference is in the focus on the body treatment. Whereas massage
improves circulation and helps relaxations and short-term stress, Rolfing focuses on reordering the body to prevent the pains returning. Also, whereas massage works on muscle tissue, Rolfing works on the fascia or connective tissue. So if you suffer muscle or skeletal pain and have tried traditional massage, why not go one step farther and give Rolfing a try. It's a deeper therapy that may be the answer you are seeking.

Grooming Tips for Men Taking care of your hair, skin, eyebrows etc. is not just for women. If you are wearing the most fabulous suit in the most striking colour and have not paid attention to grooming, you lose all points and even worse the promotion, job or client. Where do you start? Cleanliness: Showering every morning, using deodorant, brushing your teeth and using mouthwash are the basics. It probably seems simple, but these are aspects of grooming that are often overlooked. Skin Care: Gone are the days when good complexions were only for women. Men want to have good complexions also. It is difficult to look healthy and successful if your skin is dry, oily or breaks out. There are lots of skin care products on the market for men and one trip to a beauty advisor will help you decide which products are best for your skin. If you have a normal skin type with naturally clear skin, you are blessed. Keep your skin looking great by using a cleanser and moisturizer formulated for normal skin types. If you have oily skin and are prone to breakouts use products formulated for oily skin. Hair: Your hair is a very important aspect of your appearance. Start by keeping it clean and in place. Get a good haircut that you can manage easily; untidy hair is
not appropriate for business. * Go easy on gel or spiked hair in business situations * Don’t part your hair down the centre – centre parts don’t look great on many men. * If you colour your hair have it done by a professional on a regular basis. * Don’t neglect the back of your head – you don’t want to look like you just took a nap. Nails: Keep your nails in good condition. Don’t chew them down to nothing or have them dirty. Eyebrows: Keep eyebrows trimmed. Bushy long eyebrows won’t add to your business look. Fragrance: Avoid wearing strong fragrances in business situations. Since so many people have allergies to fragrances more and more work environments have a fragrance-free policy. A person should only be able to detect your fragrance when very close.

Solution for Logic Puzzle
Wish You Were Here - Austin Slack
Actually we really don’t wish the phenomenal 16 year old guitar player from Caravaca to be here as he is currently touring the Dark Side of the Moon! Most often of all he plays with local band The Streeters loved by many, in fact last year The Streeters performed over 260 gigs to various crowds from Almeria to Benidorm. Whilst the Streeters continue with their never ending tour – Austin is currently performing as lead guitarist in the Pink Floyd Symphonic which started its tour last week in La Nucia. This amazing spectacular of the music of Pink Floyd which has already received rave reviews – sees Austin strutting his stuff and obviously his guitar alongside a 40 piece orchestra. The show features the most loved Pink Floyd songs with full rock band as well the orchestra and international singers. It’s truly amazing to see our local boy show off his undoubted talents in such a spectacular arena. The tour takes Austin all over Spain and the islands until the end of May with three dates for Alicante – at the Teatro Principal 28th, 29th and 30th April and one date in Murcia being the 24th April. He will still perform with The Streeters who still have gigs locally in between the demands of the tour and in typical Streeters fashion the band have invited some serious stand ins to cover whilst Austin is away so all you Streeters fans – know that you are in for a special treat. Most of the fans know of the
bands propensity to get local singers and musicians to perform with them, also at times members of the audience have been known to throw a tambourine or two around. So whilst we will miss Austin for sure, the show goes on and his place is being kept warm by some very noteworthy musicians. Last year was an impressive year for Austin Slack, in August he played guitar with the biggest and most successful band in the Spanish speaking world, Maná, in Benidorm to a packed football stadium, Estadio Municipal de Foietes. No other Latin rock act consistently sells more albums and concert tickets than Maná. Last year Austin also performed with Joanne Shaw Taylor in Javea and Temas Incómodos in Barcelona. In previous years he began to receive invites to perform and record material with other musicians, including the band ‘Neuman’; and Spanish Indie Rockers ‘Love of Lesbian’, who invited him to join them for a few songs during their two sold out concerts in Murcia. Last year Austin also recorded The Streeters first EP – Tainted Love, a brilliant take on this well-known song. It was during his performance with Maná that his playing caught the attention of Juan Fran Senabre from the musical production company “Moon World Records” and Austin has now been given the biggest opportunity of his short playing career. He struck his first musical note on a stage in a small town called Moratalla in 2011 and has not looked back since. He went on to play in bands up and down the coast first with Magnetik Surf and Magnetik Jukebox and latterly with The Streeters and quickly also became known as El Nino Magnetico : The Magnetic Boy Child. Austin is certainly charismatic; his talent just reverberates off the guitar strings, his ability to adapt to different genres frankly staggering. His stage presence is enviable, especially for someone who is just 16, and yet he is still a lad who likes nothing more
than chocolate hobnobs. Known to all of his friends and fans as “El Niño Magnetico”, Austin Slack was born in the U.K. in Rotherham and raised on music with his Dad and Manager, Bryn, encouraging his growing interest from an early age. The family moved to Caravaca de la Cruz, Murcia from Rotherham when Austin was four, where he grew up listening to Spanish acts. His dad bought his first Spanish guitar for him when he was only nine. He did take some private guitar lessons, and also attended a workshop with the Animeros of Caravaca, but Austin says that his best teaching tool was the internet, and he would sit and watch hours and hours’ worth of tutorial videos on You Tube perfecting his guitar licks. It soon became apparent that Austin was a natural to Mum and Dad Bryn and Lisa, and now can we see his apparently effortless talent in action. Fender Spain - the world renowned guitar manufacturer - recently featured this gifted young man on their Facebook page. His star is clearly rising. Where next for the boy from Caravaca? To be frank the Slack camp are pretty tight lipped about that and who can blame them, with Austin’s star shining so brightly who would want to jinx that, so you will just have to watch this space.

How to Get a Mortgage in Spain
The lending landscape changed irrevocably after the downturn, but how easy is it to get a mortgage in Spain and how much does it cost? How do you get one? This year the Spanish property market is bouncing back in a big way after a few tough years in in many popular areas of the Costas. We don’t need to spell out the reasons why Spain has so many things to offer, but with the pound so still so strong and excellent property deals it’s a great time to buy a home there. Whilst many of you may be thinking of paying in cash, others may be keen to learn that the opportunities to borrow money in Spain have increased in the past couple of years so do research this option too. Mortgage lenders in Spain Taking out a mortgage from an experienced Spanish lender comes with a lot of added benefits. Firstly it should be mentioned that Spanish lenders are authorized by the Bank of Spain (Banco de España) and subject to its supervision. From the offset you will be working with an institution that knows the country and how things work. Their staff – some of whom will be trained to deal with buyers from overseas - will guide you through the home-purchase process in your own language. Their property survey will give you some added reassurance about what you are buying. Their due diligence on the property will ensure it is legal and unencumbered. Their lawyers will accompany you to the notary to guarantee there are no gremlins in the paperwork and that everything is signed correctly – and that the ownership of your new property is registered correctly Having said that, of course taking on a mortgage is a big decision. For everything to work out seamlessly, both parties – the client and the entity – need to be responsible and conscious about all the implications of a mortgage. It’s important to get all the information you need in order for you to make the right decision. Here are some basics: • Finance up to 70 per cent of the house purchase value • Fixed Rate Mortgage or Variable Rate Mortgage • Long-term mortgage, of up to 25 years • Maximum age at end of the loan of 75 years • Total loan repayments should not exceed 35 per cent of your net monthly income • Home insurance mandatory by Spanish law Mortgages for new-builds: Each builder has negotiated with his own bank mortgage conditions for the buyers. Nevertheless, the buyers may arrange a mortgage with another Spanish lender if they can get better conditions. The builder generally provides a mortgage offer but it is not mandatory. Mortgages for new-builds will share the characteristics above outlined above. How much does it cost to arrange a mortgage? • House valuation fees: maximum €500 (££££). • Up to 4 per cent mortgage registry fees, notary fees, bank solicitors, mortgage tax • Opening fee, up to 2 per cent • Redemption fee, up to 0.50 per cent • So allow in total up to 4 per cent on top of your other closing/purchase costs The 6 steps to getting a mortgage: 1. Do you know how much you can borrow? Your mortgage expert will advise you 2. Provide the requested documentation to apply for a mortgage 3. With the bank’s approval you will agree a deposit to purchase your home 4. Apply for your NIE number in the police station (a required Spanish identification number) 5. Sign all the pre-contractual documentations requested by the Banco de España (Bank of Spain) confirming you understand and agree to all the conditions 6. Sign the mortgage deeds at the notary along with the house purchase deeds
Paul McCartney on Sir George Martin
Record producer George Martin passed away last week and tributes to the 90 year music icon came pouring in from many. On his personal Blog, Sir Paul McCartney said: “I’m so sad to hear the news of the passing of dear George Martin. I have so many wonderful memories of this great man that will be with me forever. He was a true gentleman and like a second father to me. He guided the career of The Beatles with such skill and good humour that he became a true friend to me and my family. If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George. From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. It’s hard to choose favourite memories of my time with George, there are so many but one that comes to mind was the time I brought the song 'Yesterday’ to a recording session and the guys in the band suggested that I sang it solo and accompany myself on guitar. After I had done this George Martin said to me, "Paul I have an idea of putting a string quartet on the record". I said, “Oh no George, we are a rock and roll band and I don’t think it’s a good idea”. With the gentle bedside manner of a great producer he said to me, "Let us try it and if it doesn’t work we won’t use it and we’ll go with your solo version". I agreed to this and went round to his house the next day to work on the arrangement. He took my chords that I showed him and spread the notes out across the piano, putting the cello in the low octave and the first violin in a high octave and gave me my first lesson in how strings were voiced for a quartet. When we recorded the string quartet at Abbey Road, it was so thrilling to know his idea was so correct that I went round telling people about it for weeks. His idea obviously worked because the song subsequently became one of the most recorded songs ever with versions by Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Ray Charles,
Marvin Gaye and thousands more. This is just one of the many memories I have of George who went on to help me with arrangements on 'Eleanor Rigby', 'Live and Let Die' and many other songs of mine. I am proud to have known such a fine gentleman with such a keen sense of humour, who had the ability to poke fun at himself. Even when he was Knighted by the Queen there was never the slightest trace of snobbery about him. My family and I, to whom he was a dear friend, will miss him greatly and send our love to his wife Judy and their kids Giles and Lucy, and the grandkids. The world has lost a truly great man who left an indelible mark on my soul and the history of British music. God bless you George and all who sail in you! Paul.” The BBC noted that The Beatles recorded all of their albums with George Martin, although his work on Let It Be was initially uncredited. In May 1962, The Beatles were in the middle of their residency in Hamburg when a telegram arrived from London. Brian Epstein had secured an audition with producer George Martin who was, at that time, best known for making comedy records with Peter Sellers and Bernard Cribbins. George Martin said at the time; “I thought their music was rubbish” and added "I wasn't too impressed with the tape Brian Epstein had played me," he told Desert Island Discs in 1996. "There was something there but I couldn't find out whether it was worthwhile or not. What I said to Brian was, 'if you want me to judge them on what you're playing me, I'm sorry, I'll have to turn you down. He was so disappointed. I felt really sorry for him, actually because he was such an earnest young man. So I gave him a lifeline. I said, 'If you want to bring them down from Liverpool, I'll give them an hour in the studio.'" The band duly set up in Studio Three at Abbey Road on the afternoon of 6 June, 1962 but they issues with Paul's bass amp. "I got nothing out of The Beatles' equipment except for a load of noise, hum and goodness-knows-what," engineer Norman Smith later
told Sound On Sound. Once sorted the band played the ballad 'Besame Mucho (Kiss Me A Lot)' but it failed to impress. "I remember Martin taking a quick look at them and leaving for tea," said sound engineer Ken Townsend. But when the band launched into their next track, Lennon and McCartney's 'Love Me Do', tape engineer Chris Neal quickly departed for the Abbey Road canteen to get Martin back to the studio. "I thought their music was rubbish," he told the BBC's Arena programme in 2011. "I couldn't really make out for myself what I was listening for - because I was so conditioned to [hearing] a solo singer with a backing group. But here I had four people who were all doing all sorts of things. "It wasn't Cliff Richard and the Shadows, that's for sure." The band went on to record two more numbers - P.S. I Love You and Ask Me Why - before the session ended around three hours later at 10:00pm. Martin invited the band back to the control room and explained, at great length, where he felt they were going wrong. "We gave them a long lecture about their equipment and what would have to be done about it if they were to become recording artists," recalled Norman Smith. In particular, Martin focused on Pete Best's drumming, explaining that what worked on stage at Liverpool's Cavern Club wasn't appropriate in the studio. Best was sacked and replaced by Ringo Starr as a result.
"I never suggested that Pete Best must go. All I said was that, for the purposes of The Beatles' first record, I would rather use a session man. I never thought Brian Epstein would let him go. He seemed to be the most saleable commodity as far as looks went." Despite his misgivings, Martin eventually decided The Beatles had "the potential to make a hit record" and gave them a recording deal on 6 June (backdated by two days so as to secure copyright to the recording session). He later admitted it was their "tremendous charisma" rather than their music that won him over. "When you are with them, you are all the better for being with them and when they leave you feel a loss," he told Sue Lawley. "I fell in love with them. It's as simple as that."
Mini not to be messed with
Is the new Mini Convertible iconic? Long-lasting design classics such as the Coca-Cola bottle are iconic and so is the Mini. First launched in 1959, Sir Alec Issigonis’s design was the right car at the right time, helping democratise motoring at the dawn of the Swinging Sixties. Its success meant that it spawned a number of variants, including a convertible. So when BMW revived the Mini at the turn of the millennium it ensured that it also reinterpreted the Clubman estate and the Convertible. This new Mini is now in its third generation with three and five-door hatchback and Clubman versions already on sale. Now it’s the Convertible’s turn. The thing about icons is that they often become iconic thanks to their design, so if you mess with it you’re in trouble. That’s why Mini has largely stuck to a winning formula for this new Convertible. As the bestselling drop-top in the UK you can hardly blame BMW for risking that popularity. As the bestselling drop-top in the UK BMW has largely stuck to that winning
formula The overall look is largely unchanged but with a more contemporary update, while the car has also been lengthened and widened. There’s little concession to current car design trends either with the signature circular headlights remaining part of the cute-looking face of the car. Three engine options span the range of four variants. The best seller is the Cooper with a 1.5-litre, three-cylinder engine producing 134bhp and offering a
good compromise of performance and economy, with 55.4mpg and 114g/km emissions. The 8.6-second 0 to 60mph time ensures it feels peppy enough on the road and should satisfy most buyers’ needs. The overall look is largely unchanged but with a more contemporary update But if you want a little more bang for your buck the Cooper S is the way to go. Powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine it pumps out 189bhp, making 0 to 60mph possible in 7.0 seconds. Economy obviously suffers but 46.3mpg and 139g/km won’t exactly break the bank. The extra power makes the Cooper S a spiky little thing while the pops and bangs from the exhaust help to make it even more entertaining to drive. The hot version is the John Cooper Works (JCW), which uses the Cooper S’s engine tweaked to produce 228bhp so the 0 to 60mph sprint takes just 6.4 seconds, while fuel consumption is 47.9mpg and emissions are 152g/km. Although we’ve yet to drive it, past JCWs have always been quick and fairly hardcore so this is unlikely to be any different. The sole diesel with the Convertible, the Cooper D, is the same turbocharged, three-cylinder, 114bhp 1.5-litre engine fitted to the hatchback which returns 70.6mpg (or 68.9mpg when fitted with the six-speed automatic gearbox) with just 100g/km emissions, while 0 to 60mph takes 9.7 seconds. Mini prides itself on its cars having a go-kart feel and the Convertible is no different. The handling is agile and well balanced, there’s lots of grip, the steering is light around town (but weights up nicely when the speed increases) and it
does feel a lot like a go-kart. Job done. The ride though depends on the variant and driving mode. The Cooper S in sport mode is the firmest variation we tested and while it could feel a tad unsettled over the worst surfaces, most of the time it was perfectly accomplished. If you specify the car with the optional variable damper control, comfort mode should cope with most road surfaces. The Mini Convertible’s increased length means that there’s a bit more room inside the cabin. Rear legroom has always been an issue in the drop-top but the extra inch has made a difference. It’s still snug in the back for adults but it’s fine for short journeys around town. There’s also extra boot capacity, up to a maximum of 215 litres. The electrical roof is quick to deploy (just 18 seconds at speeds of up to 20mph) and provides some impressive soundproofing. If you want a little more bang for your buck the Cooper S is the way to go There’s also an optional Union Jack roof print for especially patriotic owners. Equipment includes a well-sorted infotainment system as standard, including the Mini Connected suite of services that syncs to an app on owners’ smartphones. You can also upgrade to a large 8.8inch larger screen and extras such as a head-up display or driver assistance systems such as rear sensors and parking camera. The Mini Convertible is the only premium, small, four-seat drop-top so there aren’t really any rivals. Citroën’s DS sub-brand is currently positioning itself as premium, making the DS3 Cabriolet a competitor but it’s no match for the Mini. There’s also the BMW 2-Series Convertible and Audi A3 Cabriolet but they are bigger in size and price and they’re more practical. So to suggest that the Mini Convertible is in a class of its own isn’t hyperbole. This is a fun little car to drive and own but it’s also refined and well equipped with all the latest safety and connectivity features (although not all are fitted as standard). It’s easy to see why it’s the nation’s favourite convertible. Iconic? Most definitely.
Motoring 33 KTM X-Bow Black Edition It's the new 2017 Subaru Impreza - honest! uses all-carbon bodywork
KTM has revealed a new limited-run version of its X-Bow sports car, which gains power and sheds weight with the fitment of an uprated engine and all-carbon fibre bodywork. Like the GT model on which it is based, the Black Edition is powered by an Audi-sourced 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, in the new model it produces 316bhp, sending drive rearwards through a new quickshifting manual gearbox. KTM has also swapped the GT's composite skin for lighter carbon fibre bodywork, which is visible through a thin layer of clear matt lacquer. It's also fitted a carbon underfloor and new
five-bolt forged racing wheels to keep unsprung mass down. Exactly how much weight has been saved is yet to be revealed by KTM, but there’s little doubt the diet and a more potent engine will enable the Black Edition to accelerate from 0-62mph in close to three seconds. Inside, the car gets bespoke finishes, including new Black Edition seat trim and a numbered plaque to signify its build number. Just 10 models will be produced, priced from €99,000 excluding taxes (about £92,000 including tax). All Black Editions will be hand-built in Austria; buyers will also get a free tour of the factory and some branded clothing.
Got some imagination to hand? You'll need it to decipher what on earth the new 2017 Subaru Impreza will look like, as this annoyingly restricted teaser photograph shows only a snippet of the new Scooby ahead of its world debut later this month. The 'all-new' Impreza will be shown at the 2016 New York motor show, which kicks off on 23 March. New Subaru Impreza: the story so far Very little has been said to accompany this new photograph. The Japanese have confirmed there will be a five-door hatchback and a four-door
saloon in New York and has promised 'upgraded in-car technology and a more spacious interior to its sleek new body design.' It was reported earlier in the week on the new platform which will underpin all future Subaru models. It has developed a modular architecture which will stretch to accommodate smaller and larger vehicles on the same box of oily bits. Happily, boxer engines and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive are promised again. Let's hope that Subaru remains wantonly different to the mass market for a while longer yet.

WEIRD WIDE WEB Have you ever stored Horse Wears Tweed Ahead potatoes in the fridge? Of Cheltenham Festival
When it comes to storing food, there is always conflicting advice or old wives' tales about the best thing to do. You might think that colder is better after all, fridges are for keeping food fresh - and you could be tempted to put all your perishable groceries in there. But there's one food you should never refrigerate, according to the Foods Standards Agency . The FSA website explains: "The most important food not to keep in the fridge are potatoes. "When these are stored in the fridge, the starch in the potato is converted to sugar. When baked or fried, these sugars combine with the amino acid asparagine and produce the chemical acrylamide, which is thought to be harmful." Potatoes should be stored in a cool, dry place - just not in the refrigerator. What is acrylamide? This is a chemical used in industrial processes such as the production of paper, dyes and plastics. Traces can generally be found in consumer products, such as food packaging - but it has also been found in foods. Why is it dangerous? A quick online search of acrylamide immediately tells you that the chemical
has been linked to cancer. The cancer.gov website explains: "Studies in rodent models have found that acrylamide exposure poses a risk for several types of cancer." What is it found in? Potato chips and French fries have been found to contain higher levels of the substance compared with other foods. Should I stop eating certain foods? The FSA says: "The Agency does not advise people to stop eating any of these foods, but you should follow Department of Health advice from the NHS Choices website on eating a healthy, balanced diet. "We also recommend that, when making chips at home, they are cooked to a light golden colour. Bread should be toasted to the lightest colour acceptable. "However, manufacturers' instructions for frying or oven-heating foods should be followed carefully." Should we be worried? According to cancer.gov, "the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations stated that the levels of acrylamide in foods pose a 'major concern' and that more research is needed to determine the risk of dietary acrylamide exposure. Although the chemical has been linked with cancer in studies with rodents, human studies are still incomplete. However, the FSA does advice that you should never keep potatoes in your fridge.
A noble steed has modelled a specially designed tweed suit ahead of this week's Cheltenham Festival - giving the term "clothes horse" a whole new meaning. Three-piece suits are normally a luxury reserved for human attendees of the racing extravaganza, but accomplished seamstresses and tailors managed to create a fine equine alternative for veteran racer Morestead in four weeks. Emma Sandham-King and her team used 18 metres of Harris Tweed for the outfit - 10 times more than is usually needed for a standard suit. A crisp white shirt, blue tie and flat cap finished off Morestead's makeover, which was proudly unveiled by champion
jockey Sir Tony McCoy. Ms Sandham-King, a former Alexander McQueen apprentice, described the project as "one of the biggest challenges I have faced in my career". She added: "Some models can be real divas, but Morestead was calm and a pleasure to work with. "Tweed is undergoing a massive revival and this year's Cheltenham Festival will see the most tweed worn since the 1960s." William Hill, which commissioned the outfit, estimates that enough tweed is worn at the event to stretch from the historic racecourse to Ireland.
Cat Found Fat and Happy in Pet Food Warehouse A cat that had been missing for more than a year in Toton, England, was finally found this week — living and dining sumptuously inside a pet food warehouse. Workers at the Kennelgate Pet Superstores warehouse in nearby Stapleton had been trying to catch the culprit for a week after they spotted evidence of a cat living among the stacked boxes of food. The cat — a Norwegian Forest Cat named Clive — was finally captured Wednesday using a trap lent by Cats Nottingham Rescue. "It's a mystery as to where he has been over the past 14 months but we think he couldn't of ended up in a better place what with all the free pet food he could dream of, not forgetting the odd warehouse mouse!" the company said. Clive's owner, Tanya Irons, said that she'd assumed that Clive — who was just
9 months old when he vanished — had been taken in by a new owner. "I can't believe he's so porky," she said. Kennelgate said the incident "really does go to show the importance of micro-chipping your pet."
