The Blame Game
Last week Spain's political parties quarrelled over ways to reduce the cost of the new national election campaign, The last vote in December cost taxpayers €130 million due to subsidies for political mail and parliament seats. €130 million that could have spent much better elsewhere. Last Thursday Spanish party representatives met to try to find ways to reduce campaign spending. With a fresh election set for June 26 after politicians failed to build governing alliances following an inconclusive vote in December, Spanish taxpayers could be facing another €130 million tab in campaign spending. Under Spanish legislation, the state puts up part of the money for the 15-day electoral campaign through subsidies for political mail and for every seat obtained in Congress and the Senate. Party representatives have agreed to meet again tomorrow, Wednesday in a bid to iron out their differences Although politicians had been mulling the need to reduce these costs since April, a meeting held on Thursday only served to showcase the difference of opinion between the traditional parties and the newcomers to the political scene. The Popular Party (PP) and Socialist Party (PSOE), which have taken turns in power for most of the last four decades, simply want all parties to slash 30% from the budgets they had for the December campaign. But this would still leave them in a position of financial superiority over their smaller rivals. The emerging Podemos and Ciudadanos, on the contrary, want to reduce the absolute spending ceiling for any party, a measure that would even out the playing field and comparatively hurt the two big parties. At the last election, the PP spent €12 million, the PSOE €9 million, Ciudadanos €4 million and Podemos €2.2 million. There was also division on the issue of political mail: the Socialists want to reduce the state subsidies for this campaign expenditure, while the PP conservatives want to keep things the way they are. The other parties want to mail all material out in the same envelope, but the PP is calling this notion “illegal.” At the last election, political mailings cost the state nearly €50 million. Party representatives have agreed to meet again next Wednesday in a bid to iron out their differences before the new campaign officially kicks off on June 10. Polls are predicting a similar outcome at the repeat election, which the PP confirming its first place yet falling short of the majority required to form a government. This is the first time in Spanish democratic history that a general election has to be called anew, reflecting the new political fragmentation in a country where parties are unaccustomed to broad governing coalitions of the type seen elsewhere in Europe.
bid at the prime minister’s office, attracting the sole support of Ciudadanos – says he will continue to reject the notion of a grand coalition with the conservatives led by acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Possibly showing the desperation of PSOE leader Pedro Sánchez, the Socialist Party opened up a secret dialogue with Podemos in a bid to explore the chance of a deal without breaking with its official partner, Ciudadanos. Testimony gathered by EL PAÍS among PSOE and Podemos leaders who are familiar with those contacts suggests that economic issues and the anti-austerity party’s demands for cabinet positions were the real cause for failure to agree, rather than the idea of a hypothetical referendum on Catalan independence, which Podemos theoretically supports and the Socialists
Regarding the latest opinion polls, it looks like the hard stance of Podemos is resulting in them losing ground while the Socialists continue to rank second after the Partio Popular Party but are inching forward from the last voter poll in January. A new voter poll shows that Podemos and its regional allies in Catalonia, Valencia and Galicia are losing support with a view to the new general election of June 26. But figures suggest a similar overall outcome as the December 20 vote, when the conservative Popular Party (PP) came in first, followed by the Socialist Party (PSOE), Podemos, Ciudadanos and United Left (IU). According to the April poll released on Friday by the Centre for Sociology Studies (CIS), the PP would still come in first with 27.4% of the vote, down from the 28.7% it secured at the December election and from the 28.8% that a January poll suggested. Despite this forecast, Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez continues to say 'no' to a grand coalition with the conservatives. Opinion Poll feedback says that this new election will be a victory by attrition. When Spaniards go to the polls again on June 26, turnout will be lower, a new poll for Spanish National newspaper EL PAÍS shows. And the Metroscopia survey also suggests that the Popular Party (PP) will benefit from that 3.2-point drop in voter participation (to 70%), and earn the most seats in parliament again. The poll also forecasts that the Socialist Party (PSOE) and the anti-austerity Podemos will both lose votes this second time round, while Ciudadanos and United Left (IU) will perform better. According to Metroscopia estimates, the PP will receive 29% of the vote, followed by the PSOE with 20.3%, Podemos with 18.1% and Ciudadanos with 16.9%. The smaller Communist Party-led United Left (IU) stands to double its presence with 6.6%, although it may run in tandem with Podemos. Despite forecasts of a stronger PP emerging from the elections, Socialist leader Pedro Sánchez – the only candidate to have attempted a

But in the four months since the December election, Rajoy has been unable to attract support of any kind from other parties in Congress, which are unwilling to associate themselves with a party tainted by corruption scandals. Sources close to Sánchez say that even if Rajoy stepped aside in favour of a new candidate – something Rajoy does not appear to be contemplating – there would still be no chance of a grand coalition with the PP. But sources at the Saturday meeting also say that Sánchez's request for agreement from delegates was met with silence. The federal committee is responsible for laying out party guidelines, and it will do so again after this fresh election. The meeting barely mentioned the PSOE’s only partner, Ciudadanos, with whom it drafted a governing program that has failed to attract enough congressional support for a majority: the Socialists have 90 seats and Ciudadanos has 40, short of the 176 required. One committee member, Javier Lambán, who is the regional premier of Aragon, said that the agreement that produced the 200-point joint program between the Socialists and Ciudadanos was a thing of the past and that it was time for each party to move on. The PSOE would rank second with 21.6%, slightly down from the 22% it obtained at the last election but up more than a point since the last poll in January.

Corvera airport visited by three companies
There was some interest shown in operating the empty Ghost airport at Corvera last when three companies were given a tour of the unopened facility. The Three companies interested in bidding for the new contract at Corvera airport were able to inspect the facilities, said the regional government. The Companies that have visited the terminal are the Spanish firm Acciona, the Lavalin, who got little makes the granting of Castell贸n, and the British group Rigby Group. The regional government says there are two other companies interested in Corvera airport along with National Company AENA. The regional government announced the visit to Murcia by the directors of Acciona and two foreign companies the same day as the special committee of the Regional Assembly is investigating the accounts and contracts at Corvera and visited the airport to see the state of its facilities. Along the way, the managers of the companies were accompanied by technicians and the director general of Tourism, Manuel Fern谩ndez Delgado. Corvera airport has been structurally finished and ready for the next phase of development since January 2012. The problem was that at this time the various bidders added as a condition to qualify for the contract the closure of San Javier
airport, since they were not willing to share the million passengers the airport next to Mar Menor has managed to maintain last year. The new interested parties travelled to Corvera with representatives of Acciona, the Spanish group who have won numerous contracts in Germany, Spain and North Africa. Airports Lavelin manage 16 airports in France and in areas such as Malta and Castellon. The Canadian company also won the contract for the airport of Valencia after the annulment of the first contract. Rigby Group is a British group operating in the UK, but has also been awarded and contracts in France, the Netherlands and Spain and in several Arab countries. The Murcia Executive has also announced the upcoming visit of two other companies, one American and one European.

Surprise birthday party Spain’s richest man, Amancio Ortega, founder of the Inditex Empire that includes global fashion retailer Zara, celebrated his 80th birthday on March 28th. To celebrate the occasion, a surprise party was organized at the headquarters of the company, in Arteixo, close to A Coruña, in Galicia. Ortega’s daughter, Marta Ortega, led her father, who was visibly moved by the surprise, on a tour of the Arteixo plant, where hundreds of workers turned out to applaud the man who created the world’s largest fashion company. A “flashmob” had also been prepared, along with a dance attended by hundreds of employees from every department, factory and shops from around the world. Ortega opened his first shop in A Coruña, in the early 1970s, from where he began selling housecoats. Born in the small community of Busdongo de Arbas in the northern region of León just months before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, Ortega opened his first shop in A Coruña, in the early 1970s, from where he began selling housecoats. Since then, Inditex has grown to be the largest textile company in the world and
Ortega one of the planet’s highest net-worth individuals. The company employs 152,854 people and runs 7,000 stores in 88 countries. Ortega stood down as CEO in 2012, leaving the day-to-day running of the company in the hands of Pablo Isla, who has been with the company since 2005. Nevertheless, Ortega retains close links to Inditex. And despite the crisis, Zara founder Amancio Ortega is the world's fourth richest person, according to ‘Forbes’ magazine. Five Spaniards have dropped out of Forbes magazine’s world billionaires list, although the owner of clothing giant Zara remains among the top five. Amancio Ortega, whose Inditex retail fashion empire also includes other brands such as Bershka, Oysho and Massimo Dutti, slid down from third to fourth place with a net worth of $64.5 billion. The textile tycoon from Galicia was bettered by Microsoft founder Bill Gates ($79.2 billion), Mexican telecom magnate Carlos Slim ($77.1 billion) and US
investor Warren Buffett, who pushed his way up to third place with $72.7 billion. As of Forbes’ latest estimate, 21 Spaniards feature in the top 500 list of global fortunes, compared with 26 a year before. The Spaniards who made the list represent a joint fortune of $116.3 billion, less than the previous figure of $121.6 billion. Besides Amancio Ortega, the wealthiest Spaniards, according to Forbes, are his eldest daughter Sandra Ortega Mera ($6.4 billion); constructor Juan Miguel Villar Mir ($5.6 billion); Juan Roig, owner of the Mercadona supermarket chain ($5.3 billion); and Isak Andic, founder of another fashion giant, Mango ($4.8 billion). Juan Roig’s wife, Hortensia Herrero, newly joins the list because of her share in Mercadona. Pushed out of the list this year are Francisco José and Juan María Riberas Mera, of the Gestamp steel company; Leopoldo del Pino, of infrastructure builder and manager Ferrovial; El Corte Inglés founder Isidoro Álvarez, who died last year; José María Aristrain, founder of steelmaker Arcelor, and real estate entrepreneur Enrique Bañuelos.

Royal Princess in Cartagena The cruise ship Royal Princess docked in Cartagena on Thursday, May 5, at the cruise terminal port of Cartagena and will return next Sunday. For the first time in its history, Cartagena will become the port of embarkation for transatlantic great cruise. This historical and tourist marker for the city attracted the Deputy Mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejon and the Councillor for Tourism, Obdulia Gomez. The local authorities were accompanied by the director general of the Port Authority, José Pedro Vindel and received by the captain of the Royal Princess, Nick Nash, as well as by Agustín Quesada, CEO of Mundomar Cruises. After an exchange of gifts, the Cartagena councillors enjoyed a tour of the facilities of the ship. A port city like Cartagena, that welcomes thousands of cruise passengers daily, is now prepared to receive tourists to embark from the port. The Deputy Mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejon , pointed out that the government team sees this as a new opportunity for
Cartagena, to further promote the city and continue positioning it as a tourist reference not only in the region of Murcia but also at the national level. Castejon stressed that the City Council, jointly with the Port Authority, was working towards making Cartagena a Home Port: a starting point for cruises. To do this, according Castejon, “we must improve the infrastructure but we are already taking concrete actions to improve the signage in the downtown area translating them into several languages.” For its part, the Councillor of Tourism pointed out that the Department is exploring new excursions and routes to offer tourists that embark from Cartagena. José Pedro Vindel stressed that they have made a great effort to build a shipping terminal in record time that has involved an investment of 300,000 euros. Also, Vindel, thanked the Princess shipping company for choosing Cartagena as a home port and wished that many more companies will decide to offer the tourist attractions of the city to its passengers. MS Royal Princess is a cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises, and the third ship to sail for the cruise line under that name. The ship was built by Fincantieri at their shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. Royal Princess is the flagship of the Princess fleet, a designation held up to that point by Grand Princess. The ship measures 141,000 GT and has a capacity of 3,600 passengers. Her amenities include a pair of public areas cantilevered over the side of the ship on the top deck—a
walkway on the starboard side and a bar on the port side. She also has fewer pools than previous Princess Cruises ships and features expanded public areas, including the movie theatre, the "Sanctuary" bar and the central Piazza atrium. The ship will also have more dining options than previous Princess vessels. The ships of this class are one of the first passenger vessels built compliant to the new safe return to port requirements. On 9 April 2013, it was announced that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge would name Royal Princess in a naming ceremony in Southampton on 13 June 2013. The ceremony upheld British ship-naming traditions including the blessing, a performance by the Royal Marines and the pipers of the Irish Guards. Royal Princess arrived at the Ocean Terminal in Southampton on Friday 7 June, where a series of events commenced for customers and travel agents, including a special naming gala on the evening of Wednesday 12 June. The ship’s inaugural celebrations concluded with her maiden voyage on 16 June.

Catalonia is preparing for another record year An expected 18 million tourists are expected to step foot in Catalonia this year covering all avenues including hotels, ports and airports for the most heavily attended summer in decades, Catalonia and in particular Barcelona, is preparing for another record season record. Hotels, ports and airports are hiring more than last year and if the trend of the first months of the year continues, the year will see with more than 18 million foreign visitors, 3% more than in 2015, bringing with them revenues of more than €16,000 million, according to estimates by the Generalitat. "Barcelona and Girona have had a good winter and a good first quarter. Barcelona forecasts for the next three months are also good," confirmed Joan Molas, president of the Business Confederation of Hotels and Restaurants of Catalonia. "All the forecasts make us think it will. The figures so far are better than last year, "said Ramon Ramos, Director of the Tourist Board Costa Brava Girona. From Tarragona, the manager of the Tourist Board Octavi Bono agrees: "We have positive expectations for growth." About 65% of international tourists arriving in Catalonia do so by air. The Airport at El Prat is preparing for a record breaking season and explained that airlines have offered almost 36 million seats for the summer season, which runs from March 27th to October 29th. This figure represents an increase of 12.7% over 2015. Vueling, El Prat's leading airline, is operating more flights
in the 12 year history of the company with 400 routes to more than 160 destinations in Europe, Middle East and North Africa. The Port of Barcelona is preparing to receive about 2.6 million cruise passengers this year, a figure that equals the record of 2011 with a planned 750 cruise calls. The weekend with more passengers will be the first of July, when a total of 62,166 cruise passengers will be in the city on the same day. French tourists (5 million in 2015) and British (1.9 million) are the most numerous tourist groups, followed by Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium. "The perspective we have after talking with tour operators is that expectations for tourists from nearby European markets are good," explains Molas. Beyond the usual
markets, he notes that there are good prospects to attract people from countries that do not usually spend the summer in Catalonia. "Ireland, which has a more family-type tourism is now buying vacations in Catalonia. The Polish market also reaches good numbers as does Switzerland." From the Union of Hospitality and Tourism of the Costa Brava-Centro, the manager Martí Sabrià is more cautious. "We wish it was better this year than last, but I think it will be similar." The international collective principal that stays in the establishments of this coastal area are the French, due to the proximity to the border. In 2013, Russian tourism in Catalonia peaked with nearly one million visitors. The trend has reversed since then because of the economic crisis and the devaluation of the ruble. This year some agents say it could grow back slightly after having fallen by half. Although international tourists grew from 2014 to 2015, the population employed in the tourism sector during the third quarter (July to September) went from 410,000 in 2014 to 406,000 in 2015. In the remaining quarters itself increases occurred around 4%. Joan Molas estimated that if demand and growth are as expected, hiring in this sector could grow between 2.5% and 3% more than the previous year. A forecast that is shared by Sabrià Martí: "In 2009 and 2010 we reached the bottom and now we are returning to our normal state of affairs."

Eta member jailed for 92 years for plot to kill Spanish king A Spanish court sentenced a member of the Basque separatist group Eta to 92 years in prison over a failed plot to kill Spain’s king at the opening of Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum in 1997. Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui and another Eta member had planned to lob grenades at Juan Carlos during the inauguration in northern Spain, according to the national court. The former Eta figure has been in London and Brussels with a new political message, but to many he still has blood on his hands Read more But police stumbled upon the plot as the two men, dressed as gardeners, were attempting to hide the weapons in flowerpots outside the museum five days before its scheduled opening on 18 October. Gogeaskoetxea shot dead a police officer at close range in an ensuing firefight and managed to escape, the court added. Gogeaskoetxea, 49, was arrested in the Cambridge, England, in July 2011 – where he had
been living for several years under a false identity – after a fellow Spaniard recognised him at a squash club. He was sentenced to 30 years in jail for murdering a police officer and another 15 years for conspiring against the monarchy. He was handed down a further 47 years behind bars for several other crimes related to the plot, including forgery of public documents and possessing weapons. Under Spanish law, a convicted criminal can serve a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison, unless he is convicted of carrying out deadly terrorist attacks in which case a life sentence is possible. Gogeaskoetxea’s lawyers had fought against his extradition to Spain, arguing that he faced a real risk of “a flagrant denial of justice” in the country because the accusations against him were based on the confessions of a co-defendant who was allegedly denied proper access to a lawyer. Britain’s high court rejected the appeal in 2012 and he was extradited. Eta has been blamed for more than 800 killings in its campaign of bombings and shootings to create an independent Basque territory in north Spain and south-west France. The group’s last deadly attack in Spain was in August 2009. In October 2011, it declared a “definitive end to armed activity” but it has yet to formally disband or disarm as the Spanish and French governments demand. Eta has been linked to several other assassination plots on Juan Carlos, 78, who abdicated the throne to his son Felipe in 2014.
Exorcism lessons are made compulsory for Spanish students Students in Spain are being forced to take a new course – in exorcisms. Their college, which is funded by the Spanish government, has called in a priest to give a seminar entitled 'The Evil'. Father José Antonio Fortea Cucurull has previously written a treatise on demonology that includes a manual on exorcisms. The University College of Barberan and Collan has made it compulsory for its 196 students to attend the conference that covers 'fields related to the devil, exorcisms and being possessed and hell'. Signs state the exorcism lecture is 'obligatory' unless students have a valid excuse, although it is not clear what that may include. The college is connected to the public research institute Complutense University of Madrid and is funded by Spain's Defence Ministry. The lecture has reportedly angered some students, but no one has yet submitted a formal complaint. In 2010, Father Cucurull defended the Vatican after the Pope's chief exorcist claimed the child sex abuse scandals rocking the Church were evidence of the
Devil's presence there. Father Gabriel Amorth, 84, who has carried out more than 70,000 exorcisms in a career spanning 24 years said Pope Benedict 'fully agreed' with him in 'casting out evil'. He added: 'We have cardinals who don't believe in Christ, bishops connected with demons. Then we have these stories of pedophilia. 'You can see the rot when we speak of Satan's smoke in the holy rooms (of the Vatican).' But Father Cucurull accused Father Amorth of going too far with his comments. Speaking at the time, he said: 'Cardinals might be better or worse, but all have upright intentions and seek the glory of God. 'To affirm that some cardinals are members of satanic sects is an unacceptable distance.'
Was the famous Spanish author of Don Quixote actually ENGLISH? A Historic document has revealed that the famous Spanish author of Don Quixote may actually be of English heritage. The startling findings were found by historian Julio Mayo, who suggests that some of Miguel de Cervantes's relatives appear to have been English. The family tree seemingly contains a range of characters including a British spy and a suspected slave trader who lived in Bristol. The manuscript, which was found in Utrera's town hall, is thought to date back to 1593 and identifies a certain 'Juan Titon de Servantes', thought to be a relative of the famous author. Titon's relatives appear to suggest he comes from an Anglosaxon family, with the listed surnames including 'Tintam' (Titon) and Herbert' (Herver). The Tintam family lived in Bristol before settling in Sanlucar de Barrameda, Cadiz in 1480. The Medina Sidonia mayor Enrique de Guzman reportedly gave permission for the trader to stay in Spain. 'I truly believe I have proved Cervantes had English family and it's only the beginning,' Mayo said. Last month Spain celebrate the fourth centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes with hundreds of events. The author of the world-famous novel 'Don Quixote' died on April 22, 1616 in Madrid but the event has always been commemorated on the 23rd - the day when he was buried - coinciding with the passing of British literary co-star Shakespeare. A colourful figure who survived a sea battle,
capture by pirates, five years of captivity in Algiers and stints in prison, Cervantes is known as the father of the modern novel and his 'Don Quixote' has become one of the world's most translated works. The book about a delusional wanna-be knight who sets out to rid the world of its ills was an overnight success when it was published in 1605 Cervantes' portrayal of a hero as imperfect as any other human being considered revolutionary at the time. It inspired authors the world over, from Jane Austen and Fyodor Dostoyevsky to Gustave Flaubert and Mark Twain. 'Cervantes' work is universal because it's not just limited to an era or to a country, but talks about feelings and people... It's very relevant today,' says Javier Rodriguez Palacios, mayor of Alcala de Henares near Madrid where Cervantes was born.
Spain smashes Nigerian 'CEO swindle' scammer network
Police arrested 43 people thought to be involved in the socalled "CEO swindle" in Spain and one in Britain - 17 of whom are thought to be the ringleaders of the scam. The largest single sum lost to the fraud was â‚Ź1.8 million ($2.1 million). The scam is alleged to have used forged emails to dupe senior company executives into parting with personal details which were then used to empty their financial accounts. The man arrested in Britain was detained close to an airport where the gang allegedly hoarded large sums of cash before it was to be transported to Nigeria. Seven people involved in running an Internet cafe in the Madrid region are suspected of
having organised weekly transfers of cash to Nigeria by plane. "135,000 euros in notes was discovered at Madrid airport hidden in rubbish bags and concealed among underwear in a suitcase destined to travel in the hold of the aircraft," police said in a statement. Several Spanish businessmen suspected of helping the syndicate to launder the stolen funds were among those arrested, according to police. The investigation began at the end of 2014 after a Pakistani citizen reported that he had been robbed of â‚Ź34,000 after his bank account was hacked. Police refused to comment on the nationality of the suspects or when exactly the operation to arrest them took place.
Club Torrevieja visit Fortuna Baths A car falls four meters without anyone inside
Club Torrevieja Classics and Specialists Cars had a couple of events in April. Firstly on Sunday the 24th, 14 cars met at the Spanglish Bar just north of Torrevieja, for a 10.30 cup of coffee before leaving at 11.00 for the Baths at Fortuna. We set off through Benijofar then around Jacarilla, past the water pipes to the N340. Following this main road through Santomera and
several small villages to Fortuna old town. The Banos de Fortuna are located on the other side of the town by the camp site. We stopped for a look at the Spa baths and a drink on the terrace of a bar with views across the valley. There are a couple of Hotels in the vicinity that looked very good and several members took brochures back with a view to a proper Spa session. After
forty minutes we continued our rally over the mountains through the villages of Barinas and Macisvenda to Hondon de Los Frailes, where we had reserved lunch in the pedestrian high street, and displayed the cars on both sides of the walk way. A leisurely lunch was enjoyed by the 32 members present in the Albatera restaurant before returning home at 17.00. Second event of the month was on Saturday the 30th in Guardamar, with a show and shine to support the Rotary Club raising funds for books for the local school children. Each child needs about 300 Euros worth of books each year!! There were at least 3 car clubs there with close to 45 cars plus a Giant Paella. So there was a lot of chatting amongst fellow petrol heads. If you are interested in cars / rallies and social events (especially if you have a Classic car) Please contact us as below. For more information on Club Torrevieja please visit www.ClubTorrevieja.com, or telephone Ron Blackwell on 966791212 or come along to one of our monthly meetings which is every first Wednesday of the month at 19.30 in the Cafeteria Marina Club in the International Marina.
A strange accident took place on Sunday morning in the centre of Madrid. A maroon car fell onto the road from a height of about four meters in the district of the Retiro and landed upside down. When emergency services arrived on the scene they found the vehicle was empty with nobody inside. The incident occurred at 6.20am when, for reasons not clarified, the car broke through the protective fence and fell into the tunnel of Calle Reina Cristina, near Atocha station. Fortunitly at that time of the morning no other vehicles were passing through the area. The vehicle fell into the middle of both lanes. The accident caused traffic delays in both directions, from that moment until about 9.0am when a municipal crane removed the vehicle. Initial investigations suggest that the occupants of the vehicle may have absconded before emergency services arrived. The vehicle had been reported as stolen. Another hypothesis is that, despite the fall and subsequent rollover, the driver was drunk or high, and preferred to flee the site so as not to be subjected to the relevant police evidence checks.

More foreign tourists visit Alicante
The average cumulative occupation of this year stood at 59.08%, representing an increase of 6.15 points compared to 2015. Increasing international tourists, with longer lengths of stay than the national non-summer seasons, have boosted occupancy rates in Alicante due to more direct flights from the airport with European cities. This has helped increase occupancy rates according to data recorded by the Provincial Association of Hotels of Alicante (APHA) from last April. Specifically, 5.25% more than last year (2015) to reach 73.56%. The average cumulative occupation of this year stood at 59.08%, representing an increase of 6.15 points compared to 2015. The data reflects that 62.93% are international visitors, highlighting the UK with 18.33%; Sweden 9.41% (where indeed was a promotion with the presence of the Bonfires); Norway 8.51% France 5.93% and 4.84% Algeria. As for domestic visitors, after the region itself, the majority are those from Madrid. The additional visitors was very
noticeable in the Puente de Mayo, where the occupancy rate of 85.34% was reached, a figure almost identical to that achieved in 2015. In addition to the increase in foreign visitors, figures from APHA also highlights the interesting segment of increased congresses in April, which continued in May with the meeting of the Spanish Society of Immunology, with about 450 participants. Referring to the segment during the month of April in Alicante were held: 17 EIPIN (European Intellectual Propierty Institutes Network) from 13 to 17; AESLA Congress 2016 with about 400 participants; International Electronic Radikal Darts Championship Darts, from 14 to 17 with the participation of about 3,000 people; National Toastmaster International Conference and Festival Open Energy Congress. All these small and medium meetings "have they helped to increase occupancy in hotels rooms available," clarified from APHA which provide the upward trend for the month of May.

Back Stage with Tony Marsh Who are you and what do you do? My name is Tony Marsh and I am a guitar vocalist rocking all over the Costa. I play acoustic and electric guitars and do mix of pop, rock, background and easy listening music. How did you start in the business? I am lead singer and guitarist with local band Shades Of Grey and decided to turn solo when I was not performing with the band. What would you be doing if you were not an entertainer? Well I am now retired but used to be a Carpenter/Joiner. As an entertainer who has been your biggest influence? I am the youngest of 5 siblings and as a child I would be forever listening to their music. So the music of the 60’s has been my overall influence. I loved it then and I
love it now. Therefore, no one person or band in particular, but rather the entire sixties decade. Obviously my love for music spans a vast spectrum as I love to play almost all genres. Do you ever get nervous or have you suffered stage fright? Surprisingly, no. What was your best moment? My best moment was sitting in a local bar minding my own business, then being approached and asked if I had my guitar to hand. I fetched my acoustic from the car and began to twang. I had never played to an audience before and couldn’t always remember the words but within a very short space of time, I had people singing
along, dancing, clapping and really enjoying themselves. After several hours and numerous handshakes and hugs, they passed round the hat. The proprietor then booked me for several more ‘pluckings’, great stuff. What has been your worst moment? Worst moment, was a first gig at a club opening. Thirty minutes in, the amp decided to blow several fuses. It couldn’t have been that bad as they did ask us to return again. What’s the best piece of advice you have received or would give someone starting out in the business? First and foremost, enjoy yourself, go out and have fun. Secondly, take on board all constructive comments and listen to your audience. Any little anecdotes or interesting stories? At a local fiesta - it began with one band member not arriving. Just three of us carried off another 4 hours of entertainment to an audience of about 200 people at a posh hotel overlooking the sea, with a luxurious interior and tables laid for a banquet. We should have been fed and watered as agreed but no reservation had been made for this. After much debate and not so friendly discussion, we ‘legged’ it up the road for hamburger and chips, returning to venue 5 minutes before we were due to start. They were very lucky that we came back at all!!! Tony Marsh can be booked direct on 686 132 173
AFTER HOURS – INTERESTING TALES For several months now we have been running the “After Hours” interview featuring bars and restaurants in the CoastRider. The final question in the interview is always ‘Any interesting tales?’ This week we feature some of the interesting, amusing and - sometimes bizarre - stories we received. Lo Crispin Tavern in Lo Crispin that hosted a Russian wedding: “The wedding party all went outside for a traditional Russian toast which involved smashing all the glasses against the wall at the end (fortunately they brought their own). A tradition I did not know about is that both bride and groom take a bite out of a loaf of bread and the
one that takes the largest bite will be head of the family. If I remember rightly the bride won!” Watering Hole in San Luis: “We are normally busy but one cold dark weekday night recently there was just me and one male regular customer in the bar for ages. Eventually I said: ‘Enough of this, let’s have a party, just the two of us.’ We turned the music up loud and danced wildly on the terrace. It was just for fun but before we knew it we had a bar full of people. Funny thing is on that evening it wasn’t just us empty there didn’t appear to be anybody about at all…and then suddenly there they all
were.” Mono’s in Quesada: “A thing that made me laugh the most happened a while ago but still to this day makes me smile... a couple came into the bar and asked to eat in the restaurant. John (my barman) replied yes of course and they could take any table except for the table of six. The couple then asked which the table was for six. John replied that…er… that would be the table with the six chairs round it.... well I rolled up and still to this day it makes me chuckle.... sooo funny .......” Rendezvous Restaurant in Altos del Limonar: “One very busy evening a meal had been placed on the bar ready to be delivered to a customer and one of the waitresses for a reason she has never been able to explain decided it was leftovers and threw the contents of the plate into the bin. We were searching high and low for this missing meal while the poor lady waiting for it was becoming more and more irate. It was embarrassing at the time but very funny looking back.” Bar Carmen’s in El Chaparral: “There was one bizarre event. We had a
French gentleman and his wife who racked up quite a ‘tab’ one afternoon. When it was time to settle up he announced that he had no money and would have to go to a cashpoint. We suggested his wife stayed with us while he went to one but he refused to leave his wife as a deposit so left us his passport, wallet and car keys and off they went. We never saw them again! Their car disappeared shortly afterwards, so they must have had spare keys, but no sign of them. We handed in their property to the police but that was the last we ever heard. We’ve still got their bill, just in case.”

Natural Remedies for Insomnia
Insomnia is a real problem apparent in our increasingly noisy, stressful lives. It can zap our energy, making us under-productive, irritable, and tired. Insomnia may be brought on by stress, depression, anxiety, a medical disorder, or some medications. Whatever the cause, there are some natural ways to combat insomnia that involve only a few changes in lifestyle or environment. First of all, establish the bed and the bedroom for sleeping activities only. Remove the television and avoid eating and working in bed. Make sure that daylight does not penetrate through the windows by using blinds or curtains to keep them covered. Keep your bedroom a temperature that is not too warm and not too cold. Your bedroom environment should be a place of serenity, not wakefulness, discomfort, or stress. Establish a regular sleeping routine if possible. Resetting your body's clock to get tired at a specific time each night will allow it to get used to sleeping in the designated time frame. Avoid naps at all cost, which can throw off this clock and make sleeping at night even more difficult. Do not oversleep, either -- encourage your body to adhere to a schedule. Exercise. This can really make a difference. Not only
does it boost your overall health, it also gives the body a reason to recharge each night. The best times to exercise are right before breakfast and right before dinner. Avoid doing it right before bed because the adrenaline may keep you awake. However, light yoga or stretches to soothing music can help your body wind down and prepare for sleep. Watch your diet. Too much caffeine or alcohol can inhibit regular sleep patterns. Heavy meals before bed can also keep you awake. If getting up to go to the bathroom
keeps you from sleeping a full night through, you might try avoiding liquids right before bed. Establish for yourself a time when you let your mind relax from the day's stresses. Read a pleasurable book, take a warm bath, or spend some time with your pet. Even if your body is no longer working, your mind might still be rehashing the day's events. Let the stress go by allowing your mind to focus on things which make you calm. If these tips seem not to help, examine your mattress. Is it old, uneven, or simply not the right firmness for you? A trip to any department store with a variety of mattresses can help you determine if you need to make a change . . . after all, you do use your mattress 7 to 10 hours in a 24 hour period every night. While a new mattress can be a relatively expensive purchase, it could mean the difference between feeling healthy and feeling drained all of the time. Sleep is essential for productivity and good health. The effects of a poor night's rest may be visible immediately upon starting the tasks for the day. A well-rested person looks energized and has a more positive outlook on the day. Don't let insomnia take away your right to being the best person you can be each day.
Build Your Immune System with Spices
Do you like cinnamon toast? How about enchiladas or hot cocoa? Did you know the spices that flavor these foods can help build your immune system? The immune system is a complex system of organs and
glands that guards against diseases and cancer. But it can only do its job when it is nourished and strengthened. Although there are many ways to build up your immune system, one can be as easy as
spicing up your meals! Common spices that may be sitting in your pantry do more than just flavor bland meals. Traditional cultures have used these spices for thousands of years to help with digestion. These spices can also help prevent cancer, but the big pharmaceutical companies don't research this because they cannot patent natural substances. If you want to take charge of your health and boost your immune system add these 4 spices to your meals: [Cinnamon] 路 Cinnamon is used for sweets, meats, squashes and more. It prevents insulin resistance and also improves memory and attention. And it's great for stopping Candida too. How many doctors have told you this? Cinnamon is high in manganese. Manganese is a mineral that helps keep bones strong, helps your thyroid gland and your nerves! 路 Cumin is a seasoning in enchiladas, tacos, soups and beans. As it flavors your food it also aids in digestion. Cumin is also used for chest ailments and coughs. Wow, I wonder if doctors would prescribe cumin for cough? I would love a prescription for enchiladas. Cumin is high in iron and a good source of manganese. 路 Oregano is used in garlic bread, pizza and omelets. What a tasty way to prevent colon cancer or ease colds, flu and fever. This spice also aids digestion. Oregano is an
excellent source of Vitamin K and a good source of manganese. 路 Cayenne is added to hot cocoa or beans and soups to stimulate and improve circulation. I added a bit of cayenne to my hot cocoa and did not taste it until it hit my throat. It felt tingly and warm. I think it would be great for sore throats! And for First Aid here are two important emergencies to use cayenne for: wounds and heart attack. For a cut, put directly into the wound to stop bleeding. For a heart attack, cayenne used with CPR helps revive the patient better than
CPR alone. Just mix in a teaspoon of cayenne into a glass of water and have the patient drink it down. Adding cayenne to the diet will help heart and high blood pressure conditions. Cayenne is an excellent source of Vitamin A and also a good source of manganese. This is only scratches the surface on how these and other spices boost the immune system. As more research is done we discover health benefits our ancestors already knew. So add more spice to your life and continue a tradition thousands of years old.
Health and Beauty 19 What Is the Difference Between Salt and Sodium?
You’ve probably noticed that many food labels list sodium as well as or instead of salt — this is because it’s the sodium in salt that’s bad for you. Sodium is a mineral or a metallic element, and symbolized by Na. It is considered as an essential nutrient, but like all things, too much sodium can be bad for you. Many people think of sodium to be coming mostly from salt, but in reality, sodium is practically everywhere. With salt or without salt, food items we consume may still have lots of sodium. Processed foods, sea foods, frozen and canned goods — all of them contain sodium, which is more
than enough for our dietary allowance. Overconsumption of sodium can be very bad for our health, as it can lead to hypertension and other cardiovascular diseases. You need to make sure you know what you’re looking at — salt or sodium — and if a label only gives sodium, you can convert it into how much salt that food contains. The amount of salt is the amount of sodium times 2.5, so a food that contains 1.5g of sodium per portion, has 3.75g of salt per portion — well on the way towards the recommended daily maximum of 6g!

Jaguar Land Rover's New StartUp Promises Car Share App Company plans to “overcome” transport challenges Jaguar Land Rover has launched a new technology company that “builds apps and on-demand services to overcome modern travel and transport challenges”, it said. InMotion is based in London and strives to “meet the new needs” of travellers. The specifics are a mystery for now, but some company statements encourage speculation. Car share smartphone app InMotion imminently starts real world tests of services such as “car sharing” in Europe, North America and Asia, for example. A smartphone app might help drivers that want to share find each other
than arrange to meet (say) Tuesday, 9am, at Waterloo Station. Car sharing has a range of benefits such as minimising traffic congestion, pollution, and wear to the road network. Travellers might also: save money by sharing fuel costs, take it in turns to drive thus slashing the need to stop for rest, and maybe socialise. Car ownership solutions InMotion is also working on “car ownership solutions”, it revealed. The meaning of this phrase is open to interpretation, but a clue might come via a company press release that claimed it wants to enable motorists to “access the car they want - when they want to”. An article on the company's website adds further intrigue. It claimed: “For decades, owning a car was the sign of personal status: as much a statement of social mobility as an indicator of financial stability.” The writer proposed: “That idea is changing.” InMotion technology might, therefore, enable motorists to have access to – but not necessarily own – small vehicles
for commuting to work in town. Some kind of pay-as-you-go system, perhaps. It might also facilitate the use of larger models for family holidays. Company vision InMotion explained: “Our vision is to transform the experience of personal travel: to deliver greater freedom, choice, and well-being in movement. To allow you to move when you want, where you want and how you want. Innovation lies at the heart of making this happen”. It continued: “As an agile start-up (company), we’re well positioned to
deliver on that promise. We are creating and growing an enterprise that will, in turn, develop digital businesses that deliver solutions that will shape a smarter and more connected world.” InMotion concluded: “We believe we can use technology to make this happen today, helping us outsmart challenges and making space for things that matter most.” These include: “Discovering new ways to explore the world around us, spending time with our friends and family, and taking back control of our daily lives.”
New Volkswagen Tiguan For 2016 The 2016 VW Tiguan is a “new from the ground up” sports-utility vehicle that comes with: 2 or 4-wheel-drive, petrol or diesel engine and manual or auto gearbox, the manufacture says. It is 4,486mm long by 1,839mm wide, so is larger than its predecessor and a similar size to the latest Golf Estate. It costs £25,530-£31,895. Space and practicality Volkswagen highlights space and practicality as core strengths. It has 29mm more knee room than its predecessor, for example – and additional headroom. Furthermore, when the rear bench is flat cargo capacity is an estate-like 1,655-litres which is a rise of 145-litres. The lowered sill makes it easier to slide-in awkward items. The Tiguan's rear bench slides forward and backward to best suit the needs of passengers and their luggage, and its range of movement is 20mm further than the outgoing vehicle's. Slide backwards to increase rear leg room, for example. Cargo capacity with the bench forward is 615-litres which is a rise of 145-litres. Safety features Safety is a key strength too, the manufacturer argues. Systems include front assist with city emergency braking (and pedestrian monitoring) that brakes, automatically, should motorists fail to respond to hazards. Its purpose is to avoid collisions or – at least – take off enough speed to significantly reduce the severity. The Tiguan also has an active bonnet. As it hits pedestrians, it lifts slightly to form an energy absorbing buffer that cuts the risk of injury. It complements automatic post-collision braking that minimises the risk of secondary impacts, plus the knee airbag. Engines, performance, fuel consumption and emissions
The 2.0-litre TDI, 150PS, diesel engine propels motorists to 62mph in 9.3 seconds. Depending on the type of gearbox and drive, it averages between 49.6 and 58.9mpg and emissions range from 125 to 149g/km. It is available with: S, SE, SE Nav, SEL and R-Line trims. The 2.0-litre, 180PS, petrol engine, in contrast, is only available with the SEL and R-Line trims. Expect: 0–62mph in 7.7 seconds, average fuel consumption of 38.2mpg and carbon emissions of 170g/km. Volkswagen says it will extend the engine range over time. Trims and equipment The S trim has: air conditioning, automatic lights and rain-sensing wipers. The SE adds: tri-zone climate control and tinted rear windows, and the SE Nav has sat-nav too. The SEL - among other things – adds ambient lighting and the R-Line has 20” alloy wheels. Tiguan has “ingenious engineering”, VW claims Volkswagen UK Head of Marketing, Rod McLeod, argues: “This exceptional new car showcases the very best of what Volkswagen can deliver.” He suggests: “Ingenious engineering, exceptional practicality and fine styling sit alongside class-leading safety in a package that brings a premium look and feel to the compact SUV class.”
Gorgeous rare Porsche Audi Q2 could cannibalise 964 'Flatnose' for sale other models in brand line-up
A SUPER-RARE Porsche 964 Turbo S 'Flatnose' is for sale – and if you have to ask, you can't afford it. Hexagon in London is selling the 1994 car, which is one of only 12 right-hand-drive versions ever built – and it's covered just 630 miles from new after being bought by a collector. A select few customers were even told about the Flatnose at the time, as Porsche looked to empty its warehouse of various trick bits and pieces it had no use for given that the 964 911 was at the end of its production life. What they were offered was two options; the X84 bodywork package, which included the more aerodynamic front end and pop-up headlights derived
directly from the 968, and the X88 'Turbo S' 3.6-litre engine package with 385bhp. The car for sale has both packages, finished in black-onblack, apart from the silver wheels. Not surprisingly, it's advertised as 'price on application'. Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, said: “At the time, only a select few were offered the ‘Flatnose’ models – they weren’t publicised, they were almost ‘under the counter’. Not only is this incredible 964 possibly the nearest thing to a brand-new Porsche 964 Turbo, it is also one of the rarest and most important time-warp Porsches we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering for sale. A true collectors’ item.”
Audi admits there’s a risk of cannibalising its range when the new Q2 goes on sale in July, but is confident the car can make a positive impact in its new segment. The Q2 will arrive in the niche premium compact crossover market and, with no direct rivals, will face competition from small SUVs and even some A-segment models, which could take sales from cars like the A3 and A1 hatchbacks. “There’s always going to be some crossover,” Chris Batty, UK product manager for the Q2 said. “But we expect the majority of buyers to be new to Audi.” Audi’s new compact crossover is shorter but wider and taller than the A3 Sportback and is seen as a key car in bringing new buyers to the brand, but its early success could be limited by the production capacity in Ingolstadt. “We are really optimistic about how well this will sell, if anything it could be constrained by how fast we can build it,” Batty said. “That could be what limits it going above any of the
other Q models initially.” Audi hopes the new, younger buyers who come to the brand with the Q2 will then go on to stay within the Audi range in future. Encouragingly for the manufacturer, 40% of people who have registered their
interest in the car so far currently don’t own an Audi. The car will be available in three trims when it goes on sale in July, with the top end Sport and S Line models in frontwheel drive variants expected to be the biggest sellers.

This season's premiership has been the single most exciting as the Premiership goes to the wire. And while Leicester City have been crowned worthy champions with games in hand, except for Aston Villa being relegated, everything else could go to the very last second on the final day of Saturday's play. Even more exciting is in Spain, at 8.00pm, the final day's play also takes place and if Barcelona draw or lose and Real Madrid win, the Blancos could nick the title. Tomorrow, should Sunderland beat Everton, then they will survive for another season while Norwich and Newcastle will go down. If Manchester United win their two final games they will take fourth place and qualify for the Champions League while neighbours City will drop to fifth and Europa League. A win for Southampton and two loses for West Ham United would also see the Hammers missing out on Europe altogether. The gossip columns in the papers are going crazy with rumours and conjecture but usually these are based on a little fact. The Sun on Sunday say that Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, 26, and Watford midfielder Troy Deeney, 27, are wanted by Leicester in a £40m double deal and that Antonio Conte wants to bring Southampton forward Graziano Pelle to Chelsea Troy Deeney
and will consider an £8m move for the 30-year-old Italian while Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback, 26, faces a Football Association investigation over allegedly breaking betting rules The Sunday Express say that Arsenal will make a £30m move for Liverpool and England striker Daniel Sturridge, 26, when the summer transfer window opens. Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal target Marqhuinos, 21, is frustrated with a lack of first-team opportunities at Paris St-Germain and the defender will ask to leave when he holds talks with the club's board after the French Cup final with Marseille on 21 May. According to the Sunday Mirror, Stoke are lining up a bid for Norwich winger Nathan Redmond, 22, as a cheaper alternative to 22-year-old West Brom forward Saido Berahino. England manager Roy Hodgson intends to speak to 20-year-old Spurs midfielder Dele Alli, suspended for the final three games of the Premier League season, about his tendency to retaliate. The Mail on Sunday wrote that Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric says former club Tottenham's progress this season will benefit England at Euro 2016. Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter is in talks over a move to
Rangers, with the 19-year-old's Anfield contract set to expire this summer. Former Newcastle forward Hatem Ben Arfa, 29, is set for a move to Barcelona, just a year after joining French club Nice following his release by the Magpies. Chelsea could make a rival bid for Ben Arfa, while midfielder Oscar, 24, is in talks over a summer move to Italian champions Juventus according to La Stampa via Daily Star Sunday. The London Evening Standard tell us that Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew will sign a new contract after the south London club secured their Premier League status with a 2-1 victory over Stoke on Saturday while Stoke City have signed a 'strategic partnership' with MLS franchise Orlando City. Former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny believes Chelsea midfield target and Roma team-mate Radja Nainggolan, 28, is more than capable of playing in the Premier League say FourFourTwo while Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian, 26, could miss the FA Cup final after suffering a leg injury against Norwich City on Saturday note the Manchester Evening News. And this time next week, all the winners and losers will be announced while we look forward to the FA Cup and Champions League finals. Matteo Darmian
