Costa Blanca Turns White Living up to its name as the 'White Coast'. For the first time this century snow fell in the region and after a gap of 91 years Torrevieja was dyed white. It started snowing lightly on Wednesday January 18, 2017 at 8.25 as the first snow flakes copiously began to fall throughout the municipality. Schools stopped for a few minutes, people ran to windows and everyone that could enjoyed the scene. This unusual and historical element was predicted by our local weather company the Mastral Project although few chose to believe it would actually happen. While a light dusting of snow may have happened 91 years ago, we actually have to go all the way back to January 2nd 1914, to the last time Torrevieja had snow lying in the streets, but no matter what, January 19, 2017 will forever remain a historic day in the City of Salt. The snow, followed by heavy rain and even hailstones throughout the regiion has led to the possible cancellation of a number of events, and so if you are planning on visiting the

Half Marathon in Santa Pola or other weekend events, it's worthwhile checking they are happening before heading out. Two events in La Mata, Torrevieja look to being cancelled or postponed: the blessing of Pets as part of the San Anton celebrations and the day of the pig, an outdoor picnic, due to the predicted rain this weekend.

Interview With Pablo Garcia, Creator Of Spain’s First Movie Tourism Package Tour By Bob Yareham

dish is the morteruelo, a warm game meat pâté. There is a local spirit, called Resoli, a kind of coffee liquor; and we can´t forget the local sweet; Alajú, made of honey and almonds. A couple of local restaurants have developed a special menu included in the package tour.

The irst time I met Pablo he impressed me by making fun of the English; later he endeared himself by making fun of the French. I don’t usually like to be a tourist and to go around in a group, but when I joined a guided tour of Cuenca led by Pablo, I admit that it was serious fun; informative and a laugh a minute. Pablo has been collaborating with us in the preparation of a set-jetting route for the province of Cuenca, and on February 4th at Cuenca’s Parador Hotel, precisely where Pierce Brosnan stayed while shooting (quite a lot actually) The World is not Enough, Pablo will be presenting the complete package. This is the irst time in Spain that a movie tourism package has been offered; other organisations have only made lists of ilms made in their area, whereas this is a complete guided tour of the locations where some important Hollywood ilms have been made. But let’s let Pablo explain. You speak good English Pablo; how did you learn? I spent 7 months in Plymouth during the last year of my degree in Geography. Of course I improved it since I work as a Tour Guide. We have welcomed many British, American and Australian clients in the last years. Which ilms have been shot in the province of Cuenca? A lot of them, but the most famous is probably EL CID shot in Belmonte´s Castle in 1961, with Charlton Heston and Sophia Loren. Some years later they shot The Four Musketeers in Uclés monastery with Oliver Reed and Richard Chamberlain. The last one was a James Bond movie, The World is not Enough with Pierce Brosnan in an amazing location Los Callejones de Las Majadas inside the Serranía de Cuenca Natural Park. Also in the same Park Arnold Schwarzenegger worked in one of his irst movies Conan the Barbarian. Sergio Leone’s irst ilm in Spain, The Colossus of Rhodes and Cary Grant’s Pride and Passion were also partly ilmed there. They also

shot many Spanish movies in the Old Town of Cuenca like Calle Mayor, one of my favourite Spanish ilms. Which speciic locations will the movie tourists visit? Three cultural landscapes Uclés Monastery, Belmonte and its castle and Cuenca which was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1996, as well as an impressive natural park: Los Callejones where we can enjoy the erosion of limestone caused by atmospheric elements like rain and wind in the last millions of years. What kind of accommodation can you offer? The best hotels in town, like the Parador, an old 16th century monastery, and Posada San José which was a school from the 17th to the 20th century, and is run by a Canadian lady. For those who prefer quiet places outside the town we also offer a couple of cottages. Do you take care of the transport? That´s right. Our visitors just need to manage transportation to the accommodation they chose. We´ll pick them up at their hotel to start the tours. Our van is a luxury Mercedes Benz for up to 8 people. Is Cuenca easy to get to? Since they opened the high speed train station it takes less than one hour from Madrid or Valencia to get here. Will there be any other activities apart from seeing the ilming locations? Of course, cultural activities like the old town city tour and wine cellar tour in La Mancha. Also adventure sports in the Natural Park like kayaking, horse riding, canyoning, archery, etc. All optional of course. Does Cuenca have interesting gastronomy? Yes, it does. The most famous local

Is there only one package or is it lexible? Very lexible. Our clients can choose how many nights they want to spend in Cuenca and how many locations they will visit, from just one to all of them. They can choose the accommodation and optional activities as well. What are the maximum and minimum numbers in each group? From 2 to 22 people but we also encourage associations to book the package tour, because we can suit a personal tour according to their needs and offer special discounts. When is the irst one? The weekend from March 31st to April 2nd. What are the prices? For this irst tour, including 2 nights, all the meals (2 dinners, 2 lunches and 2 breakfasts), tours to 4 ilm locations with English speaking guide, wine cellar tour in Belmonte, entrance admissions to Belmonte Castle and Uclés monastery and transportation (prices in double room): - 265€/ per person in Cottage accommodation Casita de Cabrejas - 285€/ per person in Posada San José - 325€ / per person in Posada San José SUITE - 410€ / per person in PARADOR (single room surcharge 150€) - 465 € / person in PARADOR Room with gorge view (single room surcharge 200 €) And for those who don´t want to go over budget: 2 nights in a country house EL PAJAR DE LA ABUELA Tours to four ilm locations with English speaking guides, entrance admissions and transportation from: 170€ / per person in double room (200 € in single room) Notice that this option does not include meals and wine cellar tour in Belmonte.

The Streeters Biography Three talented guys hailing from totally different walks of life have come together through one common passion, to form one of the most successful and admired bands of the moment. The Streeters have soared to success, making an impact on music lovers throughout Murcia and Alicante; and proving that age and nationality pose no boundaries when it comes to music. The band plays a blend of music to suit audiences of all ages, from sixties and seventies classics, by the likes of The Doors, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix; to contemporary hits from The Killers, Bruno Mars and Farrell Williams. Similar to their wide ranging musical repertoire, the band members themselves form quite an eclectic mix, with Lead Vocalist and Bassist, Oscar hailing from Bolivia, Drummer and Percussionist, Sergio being Spanish; and Lead Guitarist, Austin, originating from Rotherham, England, who aged just fifteen years old, has become a real focal point for their audiences. It was in fact this infusion of young talent, pointed out to QR by an enthusiastic groupie, that also sparked our interest in the up and coming, relatively new band on the block. El Niño Magnetico Better known to his friends and fans as “El Niño Magnetico”, Austin was born 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 when Austin was four, where he has grown up mainly listening to Spanish Artists, and was bought his irst Spanish guitar when he was nine. He took private guitar lessons for a time, and also attended a workshop with the Animeros of Caravaca, although conirms that his best learning tool was the internet, from which he would sit and watch hours worth of tutorial videos on You Tube. It soon became apparent that Austin was a

natural, and 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. Austin cites Fito y Fitipaldis, Mark Knopler, Jimi Hendrix and Muse as his main inluences. Early Days As his confidence and musical talents expanded, Austin’s hunger for performing live also spiralled, and he hooked up with Oscar, to form his first band, Magnetic Jukebox, in February 2014. Oscar was certainly no stranger to music, having begun singing at the age of eleven, and taking it to a professional level in 2008. He had previously been involved in local bands including Arroz and Roll, The Berry Chuckit and eighties rock band, The Verbenas. However, his musical talents and ability to read music originally evolved with the accordion, which he learned to play when he was just six years old, and went on to teach whilst studying music at University. The Streeters Within a month of their joining forces, Oscar and Austin teamed up with Drummer, Sergio; who was also known for his amazing appearances with Los Springers, Los Duques and Los Fanaticos; and thus, The Streeters was born! Already boasting a solid fan base, the band is now in great demand, with back to back performances booked at various venues throughout the year. Regular gigs include Monroe’s Music Pub, Torrevieja; Pablo’s Bar, Playa Flamenca; Lansdowne, Playa Flamenca; The Hen’s Teeth, Villamartin; and The Arches Bar, Las Alcazares and The Village Inn, Balsicas. The band can also be seen performing along with an additional Bass Guitarist, Alberto, as Magnetik Surf, when Oscar explained that they perform a slightly different set, comprising more classic rock tracks.

Brightman furthered her musical career as a classical crossover artist, a genre she is often credited with creating and has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Her 1996 duet with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli on “Time to Say Goodbye” became an international sensation and one of the best-selling singles of all time. Brightman is the irst artist to have been invited twice to perform the theme song at the Olympic Games: irst at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, where she sang “Amigos Para Siempre” with Spanish tenor José Carreras; and second at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, performing “You and Me” with Chinese singer Liu Huan. In 2012, Brightman accepted the UNESCO nomination for Artist for Peace, honouring her “commitment to humanitarian and charitable causes”.

BBC Worldwide has launched a global entertainment channel, BBC HD, the company’s irst channel produced exclusively for cruise ships and the wider maritime market.

Before you cruise, embark on a fun-finding mission in your port city When booking a sea cruise vacation, it may seem like a good idea to schedule your light to the port of departure for the same morning your ship sets sail. A same-day light might appear to save you time and money, but travel experts warn this could turn into an expensive mistake. Should airline delays keep you from getting to the port on time, you could end up shelling out hundreds more dollars to book another light, just so you can catch up to your ship at the next port of call. By BPT In addition, the panic and worry that set in from even the smallest hiccup in your tight travel schedule can defeat the idea of a vacation. To start your relaxing ocean getaway in the right frame of mind, give yourself and your family an extra pre-cruise day in your cruise line's port city. If everything goes as planned and you arrive the day before your ship casts off, your vacation can start early, too. Use the extra time to explore and kick back. You'll ind the home ports for these cruise ships are set up to accommodate and welcome cruise travellers. For example, if your ship happens to launch from Florida's Port Canaveral, the world's second-busiest cruise port, you'll discover many area hotels have cruise package deals that include free parking, special nightly rates and even free shuttle transportation to and from the port and to and from the airport. You'll also ind plenty to see and do locally. Cape Canaveral, near the Kennedy Space Center, is part of the eastcentral section of Florida popularly known as the Space Coast. Here, there are numerous attractions and other entertaining diversions that can help create the perfect countdown to your cruise to paradise.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex For visitors, the eye-opening facility that has propelled countless rockets and scores of shuttles out of our atmosphere also provides a full day's worth of exhibits and hands-on learning about space exploration. Eyeball a 3-D image produced by one of NASA's powerful space telescopes, inspect the Space Shuttle Atlantis up close, and "experience" life on Mars through an interactive display. Of course, there are plenty of space memorabilia to examine and fascinating astronaut stories to absorb, all of which will round out your appreciation of what NASA has accomplished so far - and what is yet to come. Rocket watching While planning your overnight along the Space Coast, be sure to check Spacecoastlaunches.com for schedules of rocket launches, public viewing sites, and special hotel packages. If you're lucky, you might have an opportunity to witness the sights, sounds and ground-shaking vibrations of a rocket launch. Cape Canaveral and the greater Space Coast area have numerous parks and observation points that make it easy to sit back and watch these rockets streak into the sky. Shopping, arts and entertainment The Space Coast features many historic shopping districts to help you leisurely pass the time morning, afternoon and evening. You can dine al fresco at one of the trendy independent restaurants or pick out a catchy new cruise outit at a local boutique. The area also has a lively arts scene

to help inspire you for your trip. Take in a pre-cruise musical performance or theater production at the Historic Cocoa Village Playhouse, or wander the assorted art galleries that dot the Eau Gallie Arts District. Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier A historic landmark along a beautiful stretch of beachfront, the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier was established in 1962. Its festival-like setting is the perfect backdrop for any traveler's early escape from reality: beachside restaurants and bars with live entertainment, an 800-foot ishing pier, spectacular views of the majestic cruise ships coming and going, rolling waves breaking and beautiful bodies suring, the sparkling beach and the glorious sunshine. What could be better? Coastal escapades You also can elude the crowds and pilot your own escapade along the area's beautiful waterways. It's easy to rent a boat and navigate the rivers and canals. You can look for dolphins and manatees or drop anchor at an island for a family barbecue and swim. Cast your line into the Banana River, pull into Sebastian Inlet State Park for snorkelling and scuba diving, or simply enjoy the journey and tie up at a waterside restaurant when hunger sets in. For planning some Space Coast fun and relaxation before you set off to sea on your cruise ship, you can peruse an extensive collection of local tourism ideas and resources at www.visitspacecoast.com.

Ray's Rant: The UN; a force for good in the world? By Ray Kearney The United Nations was founded 72 years ago this year, shortly after the end of World War II. Today the UN membership is an impressive 193 countries. The UN is best known for the multinational peacekeeping force normally deployed to keep opposing factions apart on agreed or disputed borders. The UN and all its various branches became synonymous with “Peace, help, aid and fairness”. If the UN said something, it had to be right, after all, it was the entire human family coming together to ensure balance and fairness. Organizations can become corrupt, bigoted and unfair and the UN is not an exception. Bullies emerge who try to control others. The UN has an inner sanctum called “The Security Council” made up of 15 member countries, 5 of whom are permanent. These 5 permanent members have more power than the other 188 member countries. If some of the permanent members want a little country to be reprimanded, sanctioned or even invaded they can have the Security Council vote for resolutions and sanctions whether they be fair or not. Some years back the Security Council was assured by two of the most respected permanent members that Saddam Hussein of Iraq had vast stores of weapons of mass destruction. We were

told that the proof was 100% certain; the whole world was in danger from this madman. This war was approved by the Security Council and the madman was toppled. Unfortunately or fortunately, no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. A clever and well-engineered lie had started the invasion of a sovereign state. The bombing of Libya led to the toppling of another madman, General Gadhai. ISIS was born and nurtured as a result of these two UN approved invasions. The UN regularly passes resolutions to keep rogue nations in check. In 2016 the UN passed a total of 24 resolutions, amazingly 20 were passed against Israel. With all the strife in the world, with all the terrorist activity perpetrated by ISIS and other Islamic terrorists, why is the UN so biased against one little country; half the size of Ireland? Why did outgoing President Obama orchestrate last month’s UN Security Council resolution against Israel? Last week the “Paris Peace Talks” were designed to manoeuvre Israel into a corner, demanding adherence to the failed two-state solution, conceived in the 1970’s and became official UN strategy in 1993. In June 1967 Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq backed up by Kuwait, Algeria, Sudan and Saudi Arabia gathered an army of 465,000 troops, almost

3,000 tanks and 800 military aircraft besieging Israel and declaring that they were going to promptly obliterate them. The UN did not intervene. As the best form of defence is attack in a situation like this, the Israeli air force destroyed the Arab ighter planes on the ground in a preemptive strike and after just six days Israel accepted a proposed ceaseire from a position of strength. They had pushed the besieging forces back and regained some of their own territory that had been stolen from them centuries earlier including a portion of Jerusalem. The Arab aggressors then wanted the occupied territories they had “gambled and lost” to be returned to them. When you go to war, shed blood and then lose, you’ve got to live with the consequences, ask Germany. The Palestinians want Israel to give up their land which historically had been theirs anyway. Israel wants peace but the Palestinians won’t even sit down with the Israelis until they give this land to them. The Palestinian Authority is using the UN to pressure Israel. The Palestinians believe that there should be no negative consequences to their aggression, past or present. The lands referred to as the “occupied territories” should be more correctly referred to as the “Israeli Reoccupied territories”. So now you decide, is the UN what you thought it was? Is the UN a force for good and fairness in the world?

Song Facts

FEd Sheeran's Takes Top Two Not many artists actually release two singles at the same time. But it seems to have worked well for one artist as it also seems that the UK cannot get enough of Ed Sheeran's record-breaking new tracks Shape of You and Castle on the Hill.

and She Loves You held 1 and 2 respectively for three consecutive weeks. The group managed it again in December 1967 when Hello Goodbye (1) and accompanying Magical Mystery Tour EP (2) held at their posts for three weeks.

Ed continues to occupy the Top 2 positions midweek, with Shape of You still leading the way (1). The single, originally intended for Rihanna as revealed by Ed, has been downloaded 34,000 times and streamed 3.5 million times in the last three days alone. Last week, both Shape of You and Castle on the Hill broke the UK's all-time streaming record for most plays in a single week, with Shape of You being streamed a massive 13.4 million times. Ed was also the irst artist ever to debut at Numbers 1 and 2 in the same week.

John Travolta The world was going mad for Grease in the late 1978, and unsurprisingly, its accompanying soundtrack was dominating the Official Chart. For a single week in November that year, leading man Danny - sorry, John Travolta - held Number 1 and 2 on the chart with Summer Nights (with Olivia Newton-John) and Sandy.

Ed is also the irst living British solo act to sit at Numbers 1 and 2 simultaneously. John Lennon was the irst British soloist to achieve this rare feat in

1981 just weeks after his death. Click here to learn more about the elite group of artists who have held Numbers 1 and 2 concurrently. New entries and high climbers Jax Jones & Raye's You Don't Know Me continues to leap up the Official Chart, up ive places to Number 4 today, and new at Number 10 at the mid-week stage are The Chainsmokers with their new single Paris. Featuring uncredited vocals from US singer Emily Warren, the single could become the duo's third Top 10 single following Don't Let Me Down and the Number 1 smash Closer. More collaborations climbing the chart this week: Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello's Bad Things leaps six places to Number 17, Sean Paul & Dua Lipa's hook-up Don't Lie lifts seven ranks to 21, and Robin Schulz and David Guetta's Shed A Light with Cheat Codes also continues to climb, rising seven positions to 25. It is also good news for The xx, who look to return to the Top 40 this week with their single On Hold. Previously peaking at Number 38, the track could spring back 41 positions to a new chart peak of 33 following

the release of their third album I See You. Finally, Californian rapper Sage the Gemini could earn his irst UK Top 40 hit this Friday with Now and Later, currently up nine spots to Number 34. It's a gact and a feat that only a few acts have managed to hold Number 1 and 2 on the Official Singles Chart in the chart's 60-year history. Last week, Ed Sheeran joined an elite group of acts to hold Numbers 1 and 2 on the Official Singles Chart in the same week. He's the seventh act to do so. The fact is that he's the irst artist to ever to debut at 1 and 2 with new songs in the same week others who have claimed spots 1 and 2 in the same week have done so where at least one of the tracks had already been on the chart for several weeks. The other acts who have held the top two songs simultaneously on the Official Singles Chart are few in number but probably not too much of a surprise. The Beatles The Fab Four have occupied Number 1 and 2 on the chart on two separate occasions. The irst was in December 1963, when I Want To Hold Your Hand

John Lennon Following his untimely death in December 1980, John's music soared back up the Official Chart, with Imagine and Happy Xmas (War Is Over) holding 1 and 2 respectively in January 1981. Three weeks later, Imagine was still at Number 1, but Woman the irst official single issued after his death climbed to 2. Frankie Goes To Hollywood

The Holly Johnson-fronted band were a global sensation when their debut single Relax topped the Official Chart in January 1984. Follow-up song Two Tribes arrived six months later and was immediately a hit and debuted at Number 1, though Relax was still going strong, and for two weeks in July that year, they held the Top 2 spots simultaneously. Madonna After a string of near-misses for Number 1 with singles including Like A Virgin and Material Girl, Madonna inally bagged the UK's top spot for four weeks with Into The Groove in July/August 1985. During the same time, her debut single Holiday had been reissued in the UK, and for a single week the songs held spots 1 and 2 on the Official Chart. Justin Bieber The Canadian superstar holds his own Official UK Chart record for occupying Number 1, 2 and 3 on the chart in January 2016, but a month prior to that, he held positions 1 and 2 with Love Yourself and Sorry. And Bieber being Bieber, he managed the feat again last August with Cold Water (ft. Major Lazer) and Let Me Love You (DJ Snake).

Pink Floyd: Dark Side Of The Moon By Keith Nicol 1972, Pink Floyd appeared at The Guildhall, Portsmouth, England. This was the irst time that they were able to perform the whole of what became the The Dark Side of The Moon album in its entirety, with the previous night's performance in Brighton having been halted for technical reasons. Released on March 1st, 1973, I eagerly purchased a copy of their eighth LP on release day, took it home: carefully placed it on my Technics 1200 Turntables, pulled the curtains; hit the play button and didn't move from my seat until it was time to lip oer to Side B. Always more of an album orientated group, the album did spawn a couple of classic tracks which just about short enough in length to make their way onto Radio Station playlists. However, their 1973 epic album changed the way people made and listened to albums.

When it comes to pure statistics, the numbers attached to The Dark Side of the Moon are pretty impressive: more than 45 million copies sold worldwide: consistently ranked in the Top 10 of many best-albums-ever-made polls: 15 straight years on Billboard’s album chart. The album’s 10 songs land with a massive force. From the opening heartbeat instrumental “Speak to Me” to the soul- and mindcleansing closer “Eclipse,” The Dark Side of the Moon made deep, heavy records — ones without obvious radio singles, even though “Money” almost hit the Top 10 — a commercial mainstay for the rest of the decade. It set up Pink Floyd for the rest of their career. It made headphone listening a required luxury. Developed during live performances, an early version was premiered several months before, on this day in 1972, and recording began; new material was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road in London. The group used some advanced recording techniques at the time, including multitrack recording and tape loops. Analogue

synthesizers were prominent in several tracks, and snippets from recorded interviews with Pink Floyd's road crew and others provided philosophical quotations throughout. Engineer Alan Parsons was responsible for many distinctively notable sonic aspects and the recruitment of non-lexical singer Clare Torry. The album's iconic sleeve, designed by Storm Thorgerson, depicts a prism spectrum and represents the band's lighting, the record's thematic material, and keyboardist Richard Wright's "simple and bold" design request. The album was an immediate commercial and critical success; it topped the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart for a week and remained in the chart for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988. With an estimated 45 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling worldwide. It has been remastered and re-released twice, and covered in its entirety by several other acts. It produced two singles, "Money" and "Us and Them", and is the band's most popular album among fans and critics, being ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time. The popular single release from the album was 'Money'. This song is about the bad things money can bring. Ironically, it made Pink Floyd lots of cash, as a promotion for the album. The song begins in an unusual 7/8 time signature, then during the guitar solo the song changes to 4/4, then returns to 7/8 and ends in 4/4 again. When Guitar World February 1993 asked Dave Gilmour where the famous time signature for "Money" came from, the Pink Floyd guitarist replied: "It's Roger's riff. Roger came in with the verses and lyrics for 'Money' more or less completed. And we just made up middle sections, guitar solos and all that stuff. We also invented some new riffs we created a 4/4 progression for the guitar solo and made the poor saxophone player play in 7/4. It was my idea to break down and become dry and empty for the second chorus of the solo." Roger Waters is the only songwriter credited on this, but the lead vocal is by David Gilmour. Waters provided the basic music and lyrics, while the whole band created the instrumental jam of the song. Gilmour was the one overseeing time change and responsible the acclaimed guitar solo. Many studio effects were used on this song. They were using a new 16-track recorder, which allowed

them to layer sounds much easier, but complex studio techniques like this still took a long time to do in 1973, as there weren't digital recorders and samplers available like we have today. If you wanted to copy and paste something, you had to do it the hard way - with a razor blade and splicing tape. Roger Waters put together the cash register tape loop that plays throughout the song. It also contains the sounds of tearing paper and bags of coins being thrown into an industrial foodmixing bowl. The intro was recorded by capturing the sounds of an old cash register on tape, and meticulously splicing and cutting the tape in a rhythmic pattern to make the "cash register loop" effect. The tape loop used on this was about 20 feet long, and if you've ever seen a reel-to-reel tape machine, you can imagine how hard it was to keep it playing. In order to get the right tension and continuously feed the machine, they set up the loop in a big circle using microphone stands to hold it up. It was fed through the tape machine and played throughout the song. As happens throughout Dark Side of the Moon, random voices come in at the end. Waters drew up lashcards with deep philosophical questions on them, then showed them to people around the studio and taped their answers. The ones they liked made the album. Among the people questioned: a doorman, a roadie, and Paul McCartney. Most contributions were not used, but McCartney's guitarist at the time, Henry McCullough, made the inal cut with his answer, "I don't know; I was really drunk at the time." Guitar World asked Gilmour if he was purposely trying to get away from just playing a 12 bar blues on guitar. He replied: "No, I just wanted to make a dramatic effect with the three solos. The irst solo is ADT'd - Artiicially Double Tracked. I think I did the irst two solos on a Fender Stratocaster, but the last one was done on a different guitar - a Lewis, which was made by some guy in Vancouver. It had a whole two octaves on the neck, which meant I could get up to notes that I couldn't play on a Stratocaster."

Tiny Spanish village mourns death of their most famous son who became the billionaire behind Corona beer He may not have made each residents of village he grew up an overnight millionaire but the man behind Corona beer has left a lasting legacy in his birthplace. Antonio Fernandez, who went on to become the CEO of Grupo Modelo, the brewery company who make the popular beer died a billionaire aged 99 in August 2016. The 77 residents in the tiny Spanish village of Cerezales del Condado were left perplexed by news articles claiming the billionaire had left each of them a share of his enormous fortune for living in his birthplace. Villagers confirmed the fairy tale was not entirely accurate, as he had left the money to his family in his will. Although the beer tycoon had no children of his own, he was one of 13 siblings and his fortune has been handed to his extended family.

Fernández (pictured) was responsible for the construction of the giant brewery in Guadalajara which is where Corona is still brewed

Many of them still visit for some months each summer, so it is great for the village and keeps it alive, according to The Locals. The villagers won't be sharing in that inheritance directly. So, villagers may not be rolling in cash overnight, but Fernandez's impact on the place he grew up has outlived him. Every summer he would visit, and he paid for the restoration of the church and square, brought running water to every home in the town, funded the resurfacing of roads and founded a cultural centre for the village. Maximino Sanchez, owner of the village's only bar - which only stocks Grupo Modelo beers - told local newspaper Diario de León: 'I do not know what we would have done without Antonino. We used to have no money.' Fernandez' fortune was believed to be the equivalent to each villager inheriting roughly £2million. Fernández was born in 1917 into grinding poverty and at the age of 14 he had to leave school because his parents could not afford the fees. After the Spanish Civil War he moved to Northern Spain, where he married his wife Cinia González Díez. In 1949, his wife's uncle, who owned Grupo Modelo, invited the couple to move to Mexico, where Fernández began working for the brewery, as a warehouse employee. He worked his way up through the ranks, and by 1971 he had risen to CEO and he helped make Corona not only Mexico's most popular beer but also a huge export phenomenon, including in his native Spain where it is sold under the Coronita brand. He maintained his position as CEO until 1997

and as Chairman of the Board until 2005, with both roles later taken over by his nephew Carlos Fernández González. He also remained as the Honorary Life Chairman of Grupo Modelo until his death. Corona Extra is the second most imported bottled beer in the United States, with annual sales of $693million Fernández was also a well-known philanthropist who never forgot his motherland and was honoured by the former King of Spain, Juan Carlos, for his charitable deeds, including his work with disabled young people. He established an organisation in Leon called Soltra, which offers employments opportunities to disabled people, as well as a similar company

named after his wife, Cinia, which operates in Mexico. He also set up the 'Cerezales Antonino y Cinia' Foundation in his hometown in 2009, to support rural initiatives in the area.

After Hours at REFLECTIONS BAR & RESTAURANT Tell us about yourselves My name is Chris and I am one of a group of four people who own and run ‘Reflections’ Bar & Restaurant in San Luis. The others are my good friends Craig and Claire and my partner Lara. I am from Norway and the other three are from England. I came to Spain 5 years ago on work experience intending to be here for just a few months. Then I met Lara and I stayed! What made you open a bar/restaurant? We all worked together in a busy successful bar in the Torrevieja area. It was hard work but good fun and we became firm friends. Eventually we decided that we wanted the hard work and good fun… but as our own bosses. Where did the inspiration for the name come from? It was already called ‘Reflections’ and we decided to leave it as it was, especially as it was already well-known by that name. Who does the cooking? And how would you describe your style? Craig is the head chef, ably assisted by Claire plus my brother Kim. I would describe the style as truly international as between them they have experience of preparing dishes from many parts of the world. What’s your favourite dish on the menu? My personal favourite is steak, along with the variety of sauces and ways of preparing it that

music. Each week we are full and there is always a great atmosphere. Any interesting tales? Well my mother lives nearby and is officially retired but spends a lot of time here attempting to run the place. We don’t mind because we all love her but people often say how we all came here to be our own bosses and when she’s around we’re not! Also one of our waiters, James, is No.2 in Europe at high-jump, under-19 level and he can move incredibly fast. We always joke that if you are intending to ‘do a runner’ without paying your bill make sure he’s not on duty ‘cos you won’t get very far! the three of them come up with. They are all agreed on their favourite dish, the lamb shank, made with Craig’s own recipe. I am quite partial to it myself, even though as a favourite dish the steak just edges it.

Find out what Reflections Bar & Restaurant have going on each day of the week on the whatson-costablanca.com website or telephone 966 845 456 to book a table.

Favourite day of the week? I like Mondays. It’s supposed to be a quiet day but we always seem to be busy. We do a 5€ meal deal from 12 until 5 every day except Sundays. There is a wide variety of choice on the menu, reflecting the International flavour of our cuisine. However our absolute favourite day of the week here, and we are all in total agreement, is Sunday because that is the day we hold the famous ‘Big Jam’ from 4pm to 7pm. This features some of the best musicians and singers in the area all coming together simply for the love of

Back Stage Interview This week we caught up with Dave Rawson, Comedy Hypnotist, Magician and Game Show Host. Audience participation is the key word with his ‘Push The Buzzer’ game show, Who are you, what do you do. I am a Professional Comedy Hypnotist and Magician. I am also a game show host. How did you start in the business? In 1980 whilst I was still serving in the Royal Navy as a Medic in Submarines, the Paul Daniels Magic Show was on BBC and from that moment, at the age of 21, I became addicted to Magic. I have entered a few Magic Competitions and won quite a few awards in my younger years. I didn't start learning hypnosis until I was 33. The submarine we were on visited Florida and I went to see a Hypnotist show and was immediately fascinated. It was from that moment I decided that when I left the forces, which would be 7 years later, I would turn Professional and go live in Spain. Since being a Professional Entertainer I have worked all over the world, Hong Kong, Thailand, Goa India, USA, Egypt, Canaries, Spain and the U.K

A few years ago I decided to add another string to my bow and invented a TV style interactive Gameshow. It involves all the audience splitting into teams and having a remote control buzzer. It's now been going successfully in Ibiza for the past 4 years and in the UK. What would you be doing if you were not an Entertainer? From the age of 17-40 I served in the Royal Navy in Submarines as a Medic. I was always a joker and would make all the crew laugh. Every week I would write and produce a ships magazine full of fun and laughter. So as soon as I left I knew that's what I would do professionally. I have no idea what I would have done if I weren't an entertainer as am useless at DIY and cooking.

What was your best moment? Turning Professional and getting paid for something I love doing.

Who was your biggest inluence? The Paul Daniels Show on BBC in the 1980s

What's the best piece of advice? Never ever give up. Keep knocking on every door; someone will eventually let you in Any interesting tales or anecdotes? When I have people hypnotised, I choose a girl and ask her which famous person she would like to meet. They normally say David Beckham, Robbie Williams etc. and then I put them back to sleep and when they wake up they think I am that person. It's hilarious they have their photo taken with me then I ask them if they want a kiss. They always say yes. I then turn the joke round on myself and say as soon as you kiss me you will wake up and just realise they have kissed me and not their favourite star.

Do you get nervous? Yes every time I perform in a venue where I've never been before

You can see some videos of Dave’s live performances on the ArtistsDirect-Spain website and also ind his contact details to book him direct.

Chiropractic instrument (almost) faster than speeding bullet Perhaps surprisingly, chiropractic treatments are not just reactive to conditions that are already developing. Dr. Wesley Sheader, of New Life Chiropractic, a practice currently advocating the Activator Method, is fully behind the use of this type of medical care to prevent conditions developing, rather than waiting for them to happen and then doing something about it. This could in turn limit the chances of other health conditions materialising, with back and joint problems often considered 'gateway issues' that easily lead to many other complications.

Well, OK, perhaps that's a slight exaggeration, but it got your attention anyway so please allow us to continue. Chiropractic treatments are rightly regarded as one of the best things your body can undergo when it comes to long term mobility, but despite this there are still many people that ignore those aches, pains, niggles and pressure points that could so easily be relieved with this kind of medical attention. Author Andy Ormiston takes up the story:It's not hard to see why, of course. First of all, there's that very British idea of not wanting to cause a fuss. Add to this waiting lists for public, and price lists for private specialists and you have a recipe for putting up and shutting up. Even so, it's not stopping advancements being made in this ield, with one particular method utilising a super-fast tool currently proving popular. Named 'the Activator Method', a professional places a spring-loaded instrument on the area that requires care. When released, it delivers up to 27 pounds of force, 20

times quicker than a human muscle could, reducing the chances of patients tightening up as they start to feel the treatment take hold, an unfortunate reaction that can lead to reduced impact and effect.

"If I were able to only adjust someone one time in their life, it would be in the irst year of life," she told the US-based ABC News website KCTJ8.com, giving some idea as to exactly when such preventative treatment would ideally take place. "It's amazing how fast they respond."

Five strategies to lose 48 pounds by anyone. Make a decision to change "I have never seen someone lose weight and keep it off unless they had an emotionally driven reason to change their life," says Dr. Roussell. "Monte was no different. He had a little girl and a trip to the doctor delivered him the news that he had stage 2 hypertension (an advanced form of high blood pressure). On top of that, he just felt lousy. Monte knew he couldn't go on living like this and he made the decision to change his lifestyle for good, not just for him but for his daughter, too." Attack weight loss on multiple fronts Small steps and changes to what you are eating are important, but you need to rethink your whole lifestyle, envisioning who you want to be, according to Roussell. "Monte started to change his eating habits and started exercising. Embracing multiple healthy habits like diet and exercise is a great way to get momentum with your weight loss, ensuring that you get better results, which will keep you motivated and doing more. Focus on one to two diet changes and be deliberately active with your life. Monte didn't even own a pair of running shoes when he started running and now he runs several miles a week. What kind of activity do you like to do? What the activity is at irst doesn't matter, just get moving," Dr. Roussell says. Stop drinking your calories After Monte made his decision to change his life and put his health irst, he did a quick audit of his diet and realized that a simple place for him to cut calories was beer. "Calories you consume in beer, wine or sugar sweetened drinks (energy drinks, soda, even sports drinks) are easy calories to cut out. Make sure nothing enters your mouth that doesn't support your goal of weight loss while adding beneicial nutrients to your diet," Dr. Roussell says.

Be a mindful eater and strategic snacker Monte steered away from fad diets that demonised certain food groups while exalting others. Instead he focused on eating unprocessed foods and veered away from fast food joints. "Monte says he couldn't say no to his mid-meal hunger pangs and would grab a fast food meal, which is all too often the fast track to weight gain. His strategy to correct that behaviour How an 'Average Joe' lost the weight and gained back his life

hypertension. At just 38-years-old with a 2-year-old daughter, Morris was a candidate for a heart attack. According to Dr. Mike Roussell, nutrition advisor to Men's Health Magazine, Morris put such a strategic plan into place, using ive key strategies to achieve lasting success and they can be effectively implemented was to keep a snack of pistachios in his truck and at his desk. Their lavourful crunch satisied him while the protein, ibre and healthy fats in them kept him full - and out of the fast food drive-thru," Dr. Roussell explained. Embrace what you love "Monte enjoys chocolate, but he recognized candy bars weren't going to help him lose the weight. His solution was to make his own trail mix that contained pieces of dark chocolate along with pistachios and natural dried fruits, like raisins. This strategy satisied his cravings so he wasn't feeling deprived, but he also wasn't consuming too much sugar," Dr. Roussell says.

You've probably seen all the articles about weight loss, including those that explain how to count calories or what foods you should and shouldn't eat. But if you're still having trouble losing weight, then maybe you just need a better "strategic plan," one you can put into action before you get that unwanted "wake-up call" from your doctor that your weight is affecting your health. Monte Morris received that wake-up call from his doctor, who diagnosed him as obese, along with stage 2

Successful long-term weight loss takes time. It took Monte almost a year to lose 48 pounds, but once he decided to make the change, he worked at it every one of those 365 days. Taking charge of his health has left him 10 pounds lighter than when he was in high school and with more energy and vibrancy for life than ever before. Dr. Roussell transforms complex nutritional concepts into practical nutritional habits that his clients use to ensure permanent weight loss and long lasting health. He holds a doctorate in nutrition from Pennsylvania State University. In addition to being an adjunct assistant professor at Pennsylvania State University, Dr. Roussell serves on the Advisory Board for Men's Health and SHAPE magazines as well as LIVESTRONG.com. He's an author and has been named one of the Top 100 Most Inluential People in Health & Fitness.

Diabetes patients often skip eye exams: Survey By BPT The leading cause of blindness, diabetes, is steadily growing and is expected to affect one in 10 people worldwide by 2040, the International Diabetes Federation predicts. As prevalent as the condition is, 79 percent of Americans don't know diabetic eye diseases have no visible symptoms and more than half do not know comprehensive eye examinations can detect diabetes. Those findings are from the 2016 American Eye-Q Survey conducted by the American Optometric Association (AOA).

"In 2014 alone, eye doctors found diabetes-related manifestations in 240,000 patients who were not aware they had diabetes, leading to a prompt diagnosis and care which minimizes the risk of complications," says AOA President Andrea P. Thau, O.D. "A comprehensive eye examination with a doctor

of optometry is important not just to maintain eye and vision health but can be a first line of diagnosis for many systemic diseases." The AOA advocates for regular, dilated eye exams for those with diabetes, or at risk for diabetes, because the alternatives, like online vision apps, only check for refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism and cannot detect diabetes. "When the eyes are dilated, an eye doctor is able to examine the retina for signs of diabetic eye disease and prescribe a course of treatment to help preserve an

individual's sight," Dr. Thau says. The survey, designed to drive education of eyehealth issues, also found that people diagnosed with diabetes are acutely aware of its effect on eye health and are more likely than the average American to worry about their eye health. Only 54 percent of people with diabetes who were surveyed regularly visit their doctor of optometry to understand the toll diabetes is taking on their overall eye health. Visit www.aoa.org for more information on diabetes and comprehensive eye examinations.

Confidence-boosting tips for fitness class first-timers By BPT You've joined a health club and now you're curious about fitness classes. You're almost ready to sign up for an indoor cycle, yoga or strength-training class, but something stops you. You feel nervous and uncomfortable and decide to wait. Group fitness classes are a fantastic way to exercise because you're guided by an expert, plus the energy of the group keeps you motivated. However, because it's something new that puts people outside their comfort zone, it's common to feel apprehensive in the beginning. To help you gain confidence to try any type of group exercise class, consider these tips from three health club members. Comfort over style. "Trust me, no one cares what you're wearing," says Deb Kampe, a member at Life Time, which operates 122 destinations across the United States and in Canada. "If you want to wear gym shorts and a T-shirt, do it. Head-to-toe athleisure? Do it. A tutu? Do it. Just make sure you're comfortable and safe. Don't spend a fortune on the latest fitness clothing trends or labels. Expensive does not equal better." Don't be self-conscious. "It's easy to assume everyone in class is fit, knows all the moves and is judging you. No one cares," Kampe says. "Once the music starts and the instructor begins, all eyes are up front taking direction and being lifted into the moment."

Everyone was a newbie. "Everyone was a first-timer at some point, so they know how it feels," says Dustin Meriwether, member at Life Time. "They're not going to judge you for it, and many - hopefully all will be willing to answer any questions and help in any other way." Instructors want to assist. "All instructors and other members want to help you," says Kelby Mezzenga, member at Life Time. "So just walk in and let the instructor know you are new or have a question. That welcoming feeling takes the edge off and chances are, you'll have met a new friend." Keep an open mind. "Group fitness classes are designed to challenge you and take you out of your comfort zone. You may be unfamiliar with the equipment you'll use or how hard it might be, but I guarantee you will feel the burn," Mezzenga says. Listen to your body. "You know your body best," says Meriwether. "If something doesn't feel right or if you

know you have problems with something, modify the workout correspondingly. People do that all the time and many instructors are good about suggesting such modiications." Give it 100 percent. "You get out what you put in," Meriwether says. "If you put in minimal effort, you can expect minimal results. But if you give it your all, you can expect some pretty fantastic fitness changes." Bring water. Hydration is important, but you don't need to worry about anything else. "Life Time has everything you'll need for any class, from yoga mats to towels," says Mezzenga. Celebrate victories "During the cool-down and stretching segment of class, take a moment to celebrate your victory," says Kampe. "Look around, everyone no matter what their age and ability will be seriously sweaty, all there with you sharing the same endorphins. Take that feeling with you and own it. Then look at the class schedule and commit to another one." For more information about group fitness, visit www.lifetimefitness.com.

February in Focus street Magicians, bouncy castles, dancers, music and a display of classic and specialist cars and bikes, along with St. Patrick himself. This will be a fun day with something for all the family with loads of prizes and giveaways. The parade will commence between Slievenamon and Bog Road at about 3.00pm and proceed past the Trinity and Rianxeria onto Calle Cielo passing Bar Liquid and Flanagans ending at Cabo Roig roundabout. For more information or to take part contact Richie: 637 490 937.

By Keith Nicol February is just around the corner and that means carnival time for many of us. Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, pancake day, call it what you will, along with the Chinese New Year, Ash Wednesday, St. Valentine's Day: so lots of love, roses and chocolates throughout the month, and least we should forget, we should look forward to the greatest party of them all: St. Patrick's Day on March 17th. In Spain, St. Paddy's means a fun illed afternoon in Cabo Roig, but more about that later. Torrevieja has any number of great Fiestas throughout the year, and although details have not been coming to us thick and fast, that most colourful and fun of iestas, Carnival will start during the irst week of the month. The Carnival Contest Parade starts from Plaza María Asunción, just outside of Mullins Irish Pub, and continues along Calle Ramón Gallud, past the Virgin del Carmen Cultural Centre, with the main focus being just in front of the Town Hall Square and inishing at Calle Patricio Pérez street. Here is both a Sunday afternoon parade, which is for the younger ones and a few of our everygreens, such as The Rascals, and he Walking Football fever is now taking off and those 50 and over who fancy kicking a ball around again, ladies included, can now take part in Walking football. One of the more popular spots for the sport is Los Monteinos on a Tuesday morning at 10.00am. It all helps us work of those festive kilos follow those New Year's resolution to loose a few kilos and get itter during 2017. There are at least another half a dozen local teams, with most of them advertising their playing times in local bar windows. During the winter the The Rojales Craft Market is open on the 1st Sunday of each month in the morning from 11.00am to 2.00pm. It's is a fun place to visit if you are looking for small a gift, piece of art or decoration, don’t miss the monthly Craft Market at the Cuevas del Rodeo in Rojales. Local artists put their work on display along with other craft works to browse and enjoy. Also on the 1st Sunday of each month is the Ace Cafe Classic Car event, on the street outside La Torre Hotel in Los Montesinos from 11.00am to 1.00pm. Admission is free. Kids of all ages are invited to attend the Torrellano Miniature Steam Train. It is run by the friends of the railways association and so is normally only open on Saturdays between 4.00pm and 8.00pm with Miniature Train Rides during February and March on the 2nd Sunday from 10:30am to 1:30pm. Every month the Friends of the Railways Association host a miniature train event at the railway museum in Torrellano. Donations of 1.50€ per visit are requested. Least we forget, that most romantic day of the year, St. Valentine's is on 14th February, so girls, stop dropping those hints now about romantic presents, chocolates, diamonds, dinner for two and all that, to your man now, just in case he should forget. And ladies, if he hasn't popped the question yet, why not get down on your bended knee

and put the pressure on him in front of hundreds of people, to say 'yes'.

Torrevieja is just one of the local cities that celebrate the Easter Processions with style. The event is classified as of National Interest and is supported by the Costa Blanca Tourism Board. The main parades take place on the Monday before Easter, starting at 10.00pm and on Good Friday starting at 8.00pm, although there are parades and activities every day. There are also major parades in Pilar de La Horadada, Orihuela and Elche, to name but a few.

The are three dates in March that it's impossible to ignore in Spain, no matter how we try: St. Patrick's Day, San Jose or Father's Day and Easter: the Semana Santa. Around the Southern Costa Blanca there are also a few gastronomic events that allow you to enjoy a different taste of Spain. Looking forward just over a month, on Friday March 17th, Cabo Roig is turning green for St. Patrick’s Day and hosting

a fabulous parade and party to celebrate Ireland´s national saint. Last year parade was the largest in Spain and this year's looks like being even bigger. The strip will turn into a sea of green for the day, with all the Bars & Restaurants offering all things Irish including Food, Drink, Music & Hospitality together with face painting,

In Torrevieja, once again the 100+ members of the International Cofradia Of Jesus In The Garden Of Olives will be taking part. This prestigious group has been followed by the Media across the Spanish speaking world and has been much admired and respected by most of its Spanish counterparts since its inception in 2005. With thousands of Spanish and many other Nationalities illing the streets of Torrevieja for these splendid processions the atmosphere is something to behold for those who are lucky enough to be a part of this moving Spanish Tradition.

The Locust Eaters Does anyone else possess locusts? It seems that my kitchen is full of the things, or some other invisible beasties that rampage through the fridge and destroy everything I have just bought - rendering my latest supermarket trip useless. By Janet Kelly

The only items that seem to remain untouched are pickled onions, fromage frais, natural yoghurt and lentils. Carrots and parsnips don't go down that well, unless required for snowman body-parts but apart from that the only other things to remain sacred are the Golden Syrup, on account you can't get the lid off, and the capers. There is usually something lurking at the back of the fridge that has been rejected by the locusts in the past - but only after having been "tested" first. This requires unwrapping enough of it to ensure it goes mouldy, but not enough to ensure someone (me) throws it away.

I wouldn't mind so much but I seem to spend hours planning various meals only to ind the cheese I bought for lasagne has been fed to the dog, Sunday's chicken taken to school for an experiment - and sausages liberated as part of some bizarre adolescent ceremony, usually involving smatterings of witchcraft. Anything delicious is sucked into a vacuum of digestive juices, never to be seen by the purchaser - let alone tasted. Crisps can be devoured before they have left the boot of the car, while biscuits often form part of the "how many can you eat without licking your lips" competition that usually involves one adult of the family. And it isn't me.

Then there will be a lament - not unlike the woman looking in her wardrobe declaring there is nothing to wear - that there is nothing to eat.

Any attempts at a healthy diet, as a ploy, are completely wasted. The rabbit had the last Savoy Cabbage I purchased, and the oatmeal was thrown to the birds. The squirrels got there irst and now demand same on a regular basis so porridge is literally out the window from now on.

I forever look forward to the day when the locusts leave home and have to feed themselves on student grants or trainee's wages. I bet even they ind the prospect of lentil curry with glazed root vegetables and a natural yoghurt dip if not exactly appealing, then certainly within their budgets.

LEGALISING AN EXTENSION ON YOUR PROPERTY By Andreu & Alenda Lawyers Some times our clients decide to build an extension to their property or to modify the terrace or the solarium with an extra room. Last week we talked about the legal procedure to follow in order to build an extension or modification according to the law. So, once the works are finished, and have been done according to the project as drafted by the technicians, it is presented before the Town Hall and according to the license granted, we always recommend to apply for the title deed called “declaración de obra nueva” (statement of new building works). When a builder finishes a building or any kind of property, they must provide this title deed. This title deed is granted before a public notary, and it has a detailed description of the property built, the different spaces/rooms and the total square meters built. This title deed must be inscribed in the Land Registry. Is it mandatory to grant this deed? If you are a builder or developer, the declaration of new work is mandatory. But if you are a private individual who builds on your land for your personal use, you must apply for a declaration of new work deeds if you want to sell, rent or to submit this for a mortgage loan. You might ask, why? Because the legal description doesn’t match with the physical reality of the property. This might lead you to some problems. You will need to apply for a new habitation certificate. If you want to sell your

property, the buyer will request that you to have all your documents correct because they will need to apply the Town Hall for a habitation certificate in order to contract service supplies for the house. In this case they will need a certificate signed by a technician stating that the house remains the same as it is inscribed in the Land Registry. If the extension isn’t declared, they will not grant this certificate and your buyer can sue you for damages. Where do I apply for it? The declaration for new building work is granted before a public notary but your solicitor can help you to ensure you have all the paperwork necessary for that purpose. The notary controls the legality of having obtained all the licenses, authorizations and requirements required by law. Which documents do I need? This title deed is granted by the owner of the property, so he will need to bring their national identity document and the N.I.E. number if you are a non-

HABITATION CERTIFICATE OR FIRST OCCUPANCY LICENSE From the year 2013 onwards, the first occupancy licenses will now have 25 years of validity, which will be 15 years in the case of sale of the property to another occupant or if you execute extension or rehabilitation of the house is to be carried out. Once the certificate has expired, the owner of the house must initiate a new procedure to receive the concession of

his new habitation certificate. The owner will need to contact an architect or technical architect who will issue a report on the property to be presented before the town hall. However, and regardless of the expiration of the certificate, it will be necessary to process a new certificate of habitability whenever a rehabilitation of the house is to be carried out.

Spanish national. The owner will need to provide to the notary the building project visa signed by the architect or technical architect, the license granted by the Town Hall and the declaration made by the architect stating the works have been finished. The technician that has drafted the project needs to sign the deed as well, together with the owner and the notary. Once the deed is granted, we always recommend inscribing it in the Land Registry and within two months, you will have to communicate with the Catastro with details of the new description of the property. We will talk about how this is done next week. Andreu & Alenda Lawyers is located in Torrevieja, C/. Caballero de Rodas, nº 27, 2º C, phone 96 692 77 99 or by email legalservice@andreualenda.com

Gmail: Would you fall into the trap of this clever phishing attack? A new scam that targets Google users through a fake attachment that leads you to a fake login page is the latest in a line of effective phishing attacks. It's a Classic scam, but devilishly effective. This new dangerous phishing campaign is trapping users of Gmail mail. Even individuals with technical skills fall for it, as emphasized by the security researcher Mark Maunder of WordFence. The scam relies on a biased URL that looks harmless, but is actually deadly. The attacker sends the victim an email that appears to be from someone he knows and displays an attachment pointing to a document hosted on Google Drive. In reality, it is not an attachment, but an image embedded in the body of the email. If you click on it, a login page opens automatically, prompting you to fill in his username and password. This is not necessarily very surprising What is phishing? Phishing is a type of cyber attack under which emails and messages are sent from fictitious companies or people, telling users they have won a lottery or contest and requesting them to make some particular personal information public in order to physically receive the prize. Often these include bank account details or even sums of money.

is the address book, which will allow him to target new prey. Then, he may be able to retrieve all emails or attempt to access other online services through account retrieval procedures. In short, it is the door open to the pirates. To protect against this type of attack, the best is to enable authentication in two steps . In this case, even if the pirate gets to trap you, he will still not be able to enter your account. Moreover, it is necessary to have the reflex to systematically check the URL of a login page before entering its identifiers. safe to say that hacking into a Gmail account is like hitting the motherload. Once the hacker is in a particular user's Gmail account, they rifle through the sent items and find an image attachment and use it along with a familiar 'Subject' line that you have already used to send phishing mails to the user's Google contacts. Once they click on the attachment, instead of the image, a duplicitous Google account opens instead of the real account. It asks users to log in again and since the web address reads Google Accounts (https://accounts.google.com), users are fooled into believing it is a real sign-in.

What is the new Gmail phishing attack? The hacker behind the new phishing attacks waits for users to submit their passwords. The second a new password is entered, the hacker logs in as the user. The hacker can do this by using the new technique of phishing which employs a data uniform resource identifier (URI). What it effectively does is create a fake Google log-in page to fool users into entering their account credentials. It does so by embedding a complete file in the browser's location bar. According to a report in Forbes, the hacker must be part of a team since they are very quick to act. If not a team, then there must be an automated system employed by the hacker. Why is it more dangerous than regular phishing? The attack has targeted Gmail accounts specifically. Going by the level of interconnectivity a Gmail account has with almost all other accounts (social media/websites/saved payment details), it is

Since it is using familiar content, the emails to look more credibility and thus makes victims more easily susceptible to clicking on the attachment. Unlike other attacks, this kind of phishing is very hard to spot, even by those who are tech savvy and confident with electronics, since the fake Google account that opens once the account is hacked, reads exactly like a gmail account address should read in the address bar (https://accounts.google.com) According to the testimonies, the user who falls into the trap is immediately hacked into his account. The first thing the attacker will retrieve

This is the information from Google themselves on how to prevent and report phishing attacks. The say: A phishing attack happens when someone tries to trick you into sharing personal information online. How phishing works: Phishing is typically done through email, ads, or by sites that look similar to sites you already use. For example, you might get an email that looks like it’s from your bank asking you to confirm your bank account number. Information phishing sites may ask for: Usernames and passwords: Social Security numbers: Bank account numbers: PINs (Personal Identification Numbers): Credit card numbers: Your mother’s maiden name: Your birthday: You should Report phishing sites you found on the web: If you think you found a phishing site, reporting the phishing page. Report sites that use the Google trademark: Report a phishing site that showed up in your Google Search ads: If a phishing site showed up as a sponsored link on your search results page, report the site by contacting AdWords: Report a site or email address that pretended to be Google: File a government complaint against a phishing site. How to avoid phishing attacks. Be careful anytime you receive a message from a site asking for personal information. If you get this type of message, don’t provide the information requested without confirming that the site is legitimate. If possible, open the site in another window instead of clicking the link in your email. Google will never send unsolicited messages asking for your password or other personal information.

Shaping Up for 2017: Part 2 By Heidi Wardman. There has never been a better time to make important lifestyle changes and work towards a happier, healthier you, than here and now. Most Fitness and Lifestyle Consultants will tell you that you cannot make permanent lifestyle changes by focusing on your diet alone. Instead, a healthy well balanced diet should be teamed with a varied, regular programme of exercise, which will not only help to burn calories but also tone up the fatty areas which you are left with once the excess weight has gone. This should be continued even when you are at a weight that you are happy with, in order to keep your heart, other muscles and joints in good working condition. It can be difficult to ind the time and energy at irst, especially if you work full time and have additional responsibilities, such as a family to look after in the evenings. However, once you have established your new routine you will see everything else slip nicely into place around it. Here are a few simple ways to help you develop a sustainable itness programme and get your life in order. Make Simple Changes Getting in shape does not necessarily mean that you have to become a 6am gym bunny or drag yourself out for a ive mile run every evening. In fact, it is important not to set the bar too high, as in doing this you may be inadvertently setting yourself up for failure! By tweaking your normal itness routine and eating habits you are more likely to design a regime which you can stick to and in this sense will reach your goals more quickly. For example, undertaking short intense bouts of lifting and cardiovascular exercise combined with swimming, jogging or cycling, will give you better results than doing just one of these activities for a longer period. Making small diet swaps such as trading simple sugars for complex carbs which are high in ibre, and eating ive to six small meals per day instead of three large ones will also get your metabolism working

more efficiently giving more dramatic results. Spice Things Up Make sure that your diet and exercise regimes are fun and appealing so that you actually look forward to them. This means embarking on an activity that you enjoy, and perhaps get a friend involved to turn it into a social event rather than a chore. It is also an idea to keep trying different classes to keep your itness regime fresh and work on different parts of your body. Why punish yourself at the gym three times a week when what you would really like to do is attend a Zumba itness class with all your besties? You will certainly get more out of the latter in terms of health and well-being and are more likely to stick at it if you have your friends around to support you. Keep Track of Your Progress If you are trying to lose weight or inches, then it is vital to keep a written record of your weekly progress in order to stay positive and motivated. Fitness and Lifestyle Consultants also suggest putting on a bathing suit at the beginning of each month and asking a friend to take a photo, or just get a selie in the mirror, to produce a visual diary where you can actually see your hard work paying off! There is no need to feel shy or selfconscious about your revealing snaps as no one has to see them except you - this is your achievement and you

should feel proud in your own way. Be Methodical As part of your ight for a itter, healthier you in 2017, you might consider becoming more organized, in terms of your career, inances or life goals. And whilst throwing yourself in at the deep end with a gung-ho approach might seem like the best way to get your rear into gear, in practice baby steps will probably be a more enduring and favourable option. The irst thing to do is put an action plan together, detailing what it is that you hope to achieve, how you intend to do it, with a realistic timescale to work to. For example, if you want to spring clean or simply de-clutter your home then you should

approach it one room at a time, and even break it down to focus on organizing sections of that room. “Divide and conquer” as my Dad would say! Learn To Multitask Finally, if you want to be really smart and manage your time efficiently as well as

your belongings, why not combine getting organized into a fun workout. Household chores can burn many calories if approached vigorously, and lifting and stretching to organize an untidy room will also help to tone your muscles. So grab your gym gear, crank the music up and get stuck in!

Driving Safe This Winter time, and in order to keep the road salt on the road surface (rather than bouncing off or being swept into a ditch) agencies pre-wet the road salt with salt brine. In addition to enhancing the safety of our roads in winter conditions, those snow plows are doing a lot to improve mobility. These "snowighters" reduce weather-caused delays and congestion, allowing for emergency vehicles to respond more quickly when people need help, making for shorter travel times for families, allowing kids and parents to get to school and jobs safely and on time.

Resolutions on the road: Cruising into 2017 with plans for better car care From BPT Every new year brings a lurry of resolutions, and Hankook Tire checked out the road-related improvements that drivers resolve to make happen in 2017. Whether you're looking to save money or are determined to make that cross-country road trip a reality, the Hankook Tire Gauge Index found that drivers are looking to take the well-oiled wheel of 2017 with better car care. According to the Hankook Tire Gauge Index, over half (57 percent) of Americans are determined to keep their car cleaner in 2017. Additionally, 35 percent resolve to check the air in their tires more frequently, and doing so can have a signiicant effect on overall driver safety. Did you know it is recommended to check the air in your tires once a month? Be sure to check your vehicle's owner's manual for the recommended tire pressure for your car, truck or SUV.

The snow in the region came as a surprise tp almost everyone, and although not a huge problem around most of the coast, going anywhere inland or travelling to a major city demanded the need for snow chains or/and winter tyres. When the snow just won't stop falling and the trees look a little too bare, sometimes it's all too easy to daydream about escaping to a tropical island for a while. Most drivers agree, as 84 percent would rather drive to a sunny beach than to a ski resort in the winter months. For those who can't escape the elements, it is more important than ever to make sure your tires are rotated as you navigate the winter roads. A good tip is to rotate your tires when you check your oil - and since nearly a quarter of drivers (22 percent) resolve to change the oil more frequently in 2017, it looks like America is already on the road to good car maintenance. We might all begrudge our daily commute, but considering 61 percent of us drive every day, it doesn't look like many of us are resolving to change it. However, there better be light on the roads during the daily drive. Whether drivers are scared of the dark or not, 48 percent of adjust their commute to avoid driving once the sun sets. Back to the USA and nearly one in four Americans (24 percent) will resolve to get new tyres in 2017. While shopping for those, 73 percent note they look for tyres with good traction or grip. An all-season, high performance tire like the Ventus s1 noble 2 from Hankook offers solid handling throughout the year. After all, you don't want to end up stuck by the side of the road, but if you do, there's a good chance someone will pull over and help you. More than half (56 percent) of those surveyed said they have helped someone who was pulled over with car trouble. That's deinitely one way to get some good karma heading into the new year.

Staying safe on winter roads For those who live in snow areas, winter driving can be especially challenging. Snow (and related weather events, like frost, sleet and freezing rain) can signiicantly reduce the friction of the road surface, and slippery roads are signiicantly more dangerous than dry roads. You are about 50 percent more likely to have a crash on a road under winter driving conditions than on the same road under dry conditions, according to a variety of studies. Provinces, cities and local agencies use many available tools to take care of our roads and address the negative consequences of winter weather. By plowing snow and using road salt in a safe and sustainable manner, road agencies can reduce accidents on roads under winter driving conditions by as much as 88 percent and can reduce injuries in those crashes by 85 percent, according to a study by Marquette University. Those are signiicant improvements in safety. The importance of salt on our roads Much of the salt produced in Torrevieja and Santa Pola goes towards salting the roads in Spain and Northern Europe. The key is in recognizing how road salt works. The purpose of the road salt is not to melt the snow, but rather to stop the snow from freezing to the pavement. If that goal is achieved, then plowing the snow off the road is simple and extremely effective, and it turns out that preventing that bond does not take much salt. The exact amount depends on a variety of factors (example - the colder the road surface, the more salt is needed) and will be different for every storm. Getting the road salt to the right place means having plow trucks deployed at the correct

In fact, a study by IHS Global Insight for the American Highway Users Alliance found snow- and ice-related delays and shutdowns hurt hourly workers the most. This study also placed a monetary value on fast and effective snow removal and salting. According to the researchers, a state can incur economic losses of between $300 million and $700 million every day that roads are closed and impassable. Those snow plows are not just helping keep families together and safe, they are helping to keep the lifeblood of our commerce pumping during winter storms. Here in Spain, without the roads being salted on higher ground and in the mountain areas many towns would be cut off and access to essential services made very difficult. The Salt industry is an extremely important economic factor in the Vega Baja and one of the major economic factors in the economic growth of the area over the centuries.

How To Avoid Mot Palaver: Tips From IAM Roadsmart From Keith Nicol A lot of you may be in the mentality of ‘New Year, New Me’ and hopefully fulilling your News Year’s resolutions, walking down the road of positivity. Some drivers will be going for their MOT checks and it would be a negative start to the year to fail this. This week’s tips give advice on how to avoid failing your MOT, from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman. Check your lights. This easily slips through the net becoming a thing that we look at but do not actually see when it needs replacing. Tap each light to make sure there’s not a loose connection which might appear at the test. Most

bulbs are easily changed, but you will probably need to look in the handbook to ind out how to get at them. Don’t forget to check the headlamp washers if you have xenon (HID) or LED headlamps, if these are not working the car will fail the test Try and get into the routine of checking your tyres. This would be for bulges and cuts as well as plenty of tread. Uneven wear means they are at the wrong pressure or the wheels are not aligned properly – get this ixed before the tyres are changed otherwise the new ones will wear out prematurely Handle your wipers with care. Top up the washer luid, then operate the washers and wipers. If the wipers

leave lines on the screen or scrape over the water without clearing it, they need replacing although you could try cleaning them with methylated spirit irst. We understand that you may be busy but try not to leave it until the last minute. You can submit your car for a check up to a month before the old certiicate runs out. This also gives you enough time to make any corrections should there an issue. Make a check list. Having a checklist sounds simple but allows you to remember little things that you need that may have slipped off the

radar. Try to read the comments after whether you pass or fail. Prevention is better than cure. Richard said: “If we maintain our car correctly during the year MOT time will not be as much

as an issue, remember a failure means you are driving around in a car that fails to meet the recommended ‘minimum’ safety standard and that is not how an advanced driver operates.”

Kia Stinger Receives Eyeson Design Award For Production Car Design Excellence From Keith Nicol Kia Motors’ all-new 2018 Stinger fastback sedan has been honoured with an EyesOn Design award for Production Car Design Excellence at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. At an event typically dominated by introductions from American car companies, Kia’s Stinger stole the spotlight. “We have made a lot of great cars and I’m proud of all of them, but the Stinger is something special.” said Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer for Kia Motors. The EyesOn Design Awards honour the best production and concept vehicles making their worldwide auto show debut at the NAIAS. This year's categories include Concept Car, Production Car, Concept Truck, Production Truck, Innovative Use of Color, Graphics and Materials, Interior Design, User Experience Award, and Designer Catalyst. The design of

the all-new 2018 Kia Stinger was overseen by Peter Schreyer and Gregory Guillaume, Chief Designer for Kia Motors Europe. Brimming with power, passion and performance, the 2018 Kia Stinger is a sport sedan dedicated to the thrill of driving, while cosseting occupants in luxury. From its sleek front through its svelte lanks, and up to its powerful haunches, the Stinger exudes a muscular conidence. The Stinger’s stance and visual balance are designed to lend the car an air of elegance and athleticism, rather than boy-racer aggression. Inside is a

purposeful cabin that is luxurious and exquisitely crafted. A strong horizontal plane across the dash presents the driver with a thick, leather-wrapped steering wheel. Front and centre of the driver is a single instrument binnacle with a combination of analogue and digital instrumentation. Set to go on sale across Europe in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Stinger is backed by Kia Motors’ industryleading quality and reliability.

It Occurred To Me This Week By Neil Sambrook Appreciation There is an old saying you should never meet your idols, the inference being they are bound to be a disappointment. Unlikely to come across Bob Dylan on the Costa Blanca anytime soon, I was reminded by the current ITV Drama Tina and Bobby that long ago I once came into the orbit of a hero – Bobby Moore. I cannot claim to have known him, even remotely – many who were close friends often said he was charming but distant at the same time – but toward the end of his life when he worked as a radio broadcaster our paths occasionally crossed in the press box. I would go as far to say the highlight of my sports writing career was not a Champions League Final or World Cup fixture, but receiving a nod of recognition from Bobby Moore – three days after sitting near each other at Wembley, we met again in the Villa Park Press Room, he giving me a ‘we’ll have to stop meeting like this,’ type grin. I cannot remember who Aston Villa played that Saturday, but will never forget an upclose Bobby Moore smile, that from July 30 1966 became engrained in the national consciousness. Space does not allow to fully extol Bobby Moore the footballer. Easily the finest British defender of all-time and since he retired from the international stage, very few have come close to reaching his level of accomplishment. But Bobby Moore was suitably gifted to be world class in any era he would have played. Until England once again unearth a defender with the same poise and ability to counteract danger in a second, their delusions of grandeur will remain exactly that. As for Bobby Moore the man, who knows? Will the Tina and Bobby television drama tell us anything new? Biographers have found it hard to depict a man who could emotionally evasive even to those who knew him well. Clearly he was complex and flawed, as we all can be, but despite foibles seems someone remarkably short on ego for one who achieved so much. His acclaim as a player and England captain is richly deserved – what he did not deserve was the appalling treatment he received from The Football Association when his playing career ended. Neither was it fair for him to be taken at the relatively young age of 51. In the week he died in February 1993, I asked John Bond, then manager of Shrewsbury Town,

about Moore, his former West Ham team-mate. John thought for a moment, then looked across his desk and said: ‘They are no more from where Bobby came from.’ Taylor Of Distinction It would be remiss of me not to pay tribute to former England manager Graham Taylor who died at the age of 72 this week. I had the privilege of speaking to Graham many times when he was manager of Aston Villa, England and Wolverhampton Wanderers and always found him a courteous, engaging man.

Indeed, making an appointment to see him was never difficult, it was ending the conversation such was his willingness to discuss football. Despite a disappointing spell as England boss, when he was subjected to the very worst in tabloid journalism – which he rose above with typical dignity – Taylor was a fine club manager, with his achievements at Watford nothing short of miraculous. Latterly our paths crossed when he worked as a broadcaster and we always parted on good terms with a handshake. I will remember him with nothing but fondness and affection.

Valtteri Bottas joins Lewis Hamilton By Nigel Owen. To borrow the word used by Niki Lauda, the "commotion" surrounding Mercedes' attempts to replace Nico Rosberg at short notice has now come to an end, with Valtteri Bottas getting the nod to slot in alongside Lewis Hamilton. Is he the right man for the job? Don't be fooled by Williams's dip in form over the last three years, Bottas has long looked like a driver deserving of a top car and now he gets a chance to prove himself. The domino effect of that move means Felipe Massa returns after missing exactly zero races during his retirement from F1, while Pascal Wehrlein effectively rejected by Mercedes and then Williams ends up at Sauber. With all of that resolved, 2017's launch season can't come soon enough. Valterri Bottas thinks he will be able to match Lewis Hamilton as the two will be paired as team mates for next season.

Bottas signed a deal with the Silver Arrows on the 16th January, confirming all the speculating about for weeks. The length of Bottas's contract was not disclosed, with Mercedes simply announcing him for 2017. The Finn is confident that he can get close to Hamilton in 2017. Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is no longer part of Valtteri Bottas' personal management after the Finnish driver signed the deal to race for the team. Wolff invested in Bottas' career at an early stage, but said before the signing announcement meant he would no longer be involved in the Finn's personal affairs. "It would be a conflict of interest to be involved in the management

of a driver and equally being his boss and running the team," It is believed that a deal was struck by Williams for a better engine deal than they have at the moment Bottas also said that he is looking forward to getting to know Hamilton and working alongside him, but will have his ultimate goal in mind. "I'm looking forward to getting to know him better," Bottas said. "I see no issues between us and I'm sure we'll work well together, pushing hard on the track but at the same time pushing the team forward together as team-mates." Bottas will replace retired world champion Nico Rosberg in shoes

Massa returns to F1 as Bottas replacement The Williams team has conirmed Felipe Massa will race alongside Lance Stroll in the 2017 Formula 1 season, replacing Mercedesbound Valtteri Bottas. The announcement that Massa will come out of retirement to replace Bottas, which came on the same day as Mercedes protégé Pascal Wehrlein

was confirmed at Sauber, means the Brazilian will race for Williams for a fourth consecutive season. Massa, who had announced his retirement from the sport at the end of the past season, will thus continue racing for another year with the Grove-based squad and said the deal was for one year. The 35 year old Brazilian was convinced to return to racing as Williams wanted an experienced driver to partner rookie Stroll in a season with big regulation changes. Massa, who has 250 grand prix starts to his name, inished the 2016 season in 11th position, three places and 32 points behind Bottas.

Claire Williams added: "I'm delighted that Felipe has agreed to come out of retirement to be a part of our 2017 campaign. Since 2009 the bargeboard regulations have been very restricted, with bodywork only allowed within a tight itting ‘box’ tucked just ahead of the sidepod. Although recent developments from Mercedes have proved that there is still progress to be made in this area, their overall size will inally increase once again for 2017. The bargeboard can start much further forward than previously, less than half a metre from the front wheel centre line, and cannot exceed 475mm in height. It can then extend all the way back towards the sidepod, avoiding a small exclusion zone in roughly the same region as this year, ending on the loor’s ‘axe head’. Capturing and managing airlow coming around the nose and lower front wishbone will be made much easier by these changes.

that he admits will be big to fill. "It is a big place to step into, last year Nico won the title, Mercedes won the constructor's title, but I'm completely ready for it," he said. "I'll be doing everything I can to perform from the very first test, the very first race, on wards on the left of the team and the level of the car and I trust myself and my skills." "I know I can do it and the main pressure, if there is any comes from me because I am a really competitive guy and I always set really high targets for myself on how I want to perform." "If there's any pressure it's from me and I have such great people behind me, supporting me and it's all going to be good." Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff believes Lewis Hamilton will face a tough challenge from new teammate Valtteri Bottas.
