No deal Brexit would bring expat misery UK expats in Spain could face losing access to pensions and taxed for using credit cards in event of no-deal Brexit. Annuities, deposit services, lending and insurance are just some of the financial actions where expats could face difficulties if the EU does not take action. UK citizens in the European Economic Area will not be able to access these products without intervention from Brussels before the Brexit deadline. It comes after the government released its no-deal preparation plans last

Thursday, in a bid to offer guidance in the event of Britain leaving the EU without a mutual agreement with the EU. It also revealed how credit card users could be slapped with a so-called “Brexit tax”. Pensioners have also been warned of difficulties accessing their monthly payments as claimed by insurance companies. Hugh Savill, director of regulation at the Association of British Insurers, said leaving the EU without a deal would cause ‘major inconvenience’ to millions of pensioners, travellers and drivers. He added: “We urge the Government to agree a deal as a matter of urgency.”

Savill revealed that insurers have been making ‘contingency plans’ for months but the issues are too deeprooted for them to fix alone. The government said in its no-deal preparation papers that it will take unilateral action as much as it can but that it will need cooperation from the EU.

Cliff rescue WORLD NEWS: in Torrevieja Ladies, if you've ever looked at your man's underwear and thought it was a bit dull, then you're not alone. There's so much choice when it comes to women's underwear, from thongs to Brazilian and Bridget Jones -style pants, not to mention strapless, multiway and water bras. Mostly men only have boxers or briefs to choose from. However that's all about to change, as one lingerie company have created a unique line of bras and knickers especially for men. HommeMystere is selling lacy bras, matching knickers and for the male who wants to wear something a little more sexy under his clothes.If that's not enough, men can also get their own silk nighties, baby dolls and body suits. The company's bras don't come with actual cup sizes, but some padded options are available and sizes range from small to extra large. According to the website, it's not just the men getting a kick out of the soft, luxurious underwear - the women love it too.

A woman, said to be in her fifties, was rescued by fire fighters after falling off a cliff in Torrevieja. Fire fighters were called to rescue a woman who had fallen from a cliff at the coves of Torrevieja on Saturday. The woman, said to be in her fifties, had fallen in the La Higuera cove at

around 11:00 in the morning. Three rescue units and a paramedic ambulance attended the scene with fire fighters lifting her back to the top on a stretcher, before the ambulance took her to hospital with several contusions to the knee and hand.

Torrevieja lifeguards have been practising their skills with an emergency simulation exercise at La Mata beach. The beach rescue services serving Torrevieja carried out a mock rescue on the beach, where the scenario was an emergency response to deal with a victim who had suffered the effects of drowning. The Councillor for Beaches, Javier Manzanares, witnessed the drill and spoke of his pride in the way the emergency services worked together, saying, “We have organised a drill, which we usually do every year, to account for the reaction

time of both the rescuers and the arrival of the ambulance, the local police and the transfer to the hospital, which once again has been certified so we can be sure our beaches are safe”. In the simulation, a victim was located almost 150 metres from the shore and having suffered a heart attack in the water and showed signs of suffering the effects of drowning. The rescuers followed a series of steps to save his life, from first response to hospital transfer, ensuring that established protocols were met at every stage.

Lacy underwear for men is now a thing

TOYS 'R' US TO STAY OPEN IN SPAIN AND PORTUGAL Children’s leisure and gift chain Toys 'R' Us will remain open in Spain and Portugal now it has been bought out by the global firm Green Swan, according to the new company in a press release this week. The toy giant announced it had gone bankrupt in June and its branches in the USA, where it originates from, and the UK were all closed down. But thanks to Green Swan's having bought it as a going

concern, the stores in Spain and Portugal will be able to continue open. Green Swan owns 60 percent of Toys 'R' Us' shares, whilst the remainder is still in the hands of the original owners. The firm will open a new branch in the Isla Azul shopping centre in Madrid next month, meaning Spain alone will have 52 stores. None of the existing 1,600 employees in Spain will be affected.

WORLD NEWS: first match of the season Continued from page 3

up the youngster never knew where he came from. It was a cold morning in January 1954 when two bread delivery men stumbled across an abandoned baby in Lancaster, Ohio. The men had been making their rounds when they saw something move inside a nearby phone booth and decided to check it out. A two-month-old baby boy had been there for several hours, dumped inside a box with a blanket and a bottle of milk. Nicknamed 'booth baby' and 'little boy blue-eyes', the baby quickly became front page news as nobody could figure out where he had come from. But now, 64 years later, the mystery has finally been solved. After being adopted by Stanley and Vivian Dennis, the boy was named Steve and he grew up with his new family in Arizona. He later joined the Peace Corps and became a chiropractor before getting married and having two daughters. Steve had always known he was adopted, but had never been interested in finding out about his birth parents - until his children became teenagers and pushed him to find out more about their family. Speaking to the Lancaster Eagle Gazette , he said: "They’re always really curious about, ‘Dad, you know, where are you from? You know, like, what is your heritage?'" So they decided to do a DNA test through Ancestry.com. Three months after taking the test, he got his results - and found a first cousin who said they knew who his mother was. "He wrote an email to me and said, 'You know, I think I know who your mother is. We’ve heard throughout our lives that there was a baby we were related to who was left in a telephone booth, just kind of like a hidden secret.’" After discovering this, he soon learned he also had a half-sister, who told him his birth mother was alive and living in Baltimore. She had been just 18 years old when she gave birth to Steve. Apparently his father had told his mother he would only marry her if she got rid of their baby. She agreed, so he took the child and put it in a telephone booth.

The first match of the new football season is set to take place on Sunday 2nd September at 7pm at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Torrevieja. This will see CD Torrevieja take on local rivals UD Horadada. The club face this derby with a new lease of life, renewed expectations for this new season, and a whole new plan of action not only for the first team, but for the reserves and Under18s as well.

The management is about to launch the season ticket campaign, which fans will be able to purchase from the stadium ticket office on the day. However, The Costa Blanca People is lucky enough to have four tickets to give away, two this week and two in next week’s paper.

Medals Awarded to Torrevieja to host LaVuelta 2019 time Torrevieja Police trail at Salt Lakes The Salt Lake in Torrevieja has been chosen as a location for a time trial in the 2019 cycle tour of Spain. The 2019 Tour of Spain cycle race, known as La Vuelta, will start a time trial at the Salinas in Torrevieja, and will complete three stages in the province of Alicante, according to an announcement by the spokesperson for the organisers, Javier Guillén. “The province of Alicante is a cyclist’s paradise, with sea, mountains, harbours and plains and a climate that fits perfectly with the practice of cycling,”, Guillén said in his address at a presentation on Friday in Málaga, on the Costa del Sol. It is not just sporting enthusiasts who are said to benefit from the race, the economic impact on the tour visiting

Alicante is estimated to be around 3 million euro, with around 250,000 euro per night spent accommodating and serving the teams as they stay in the various locations around the province. There is a secondary income too, as the race is broadcast on Spanish national and international television, with 365 million viewers worldwide, not forgetting the impact on social media with the official website generating 4.4 million visitors, and so the areas the race visits are showcased on one of the biggest platforms available where the scenery and benefits of the area are represented, thus generating, according to the organisers, interest for tourism.

National Police Issue warn dog owners The National Police is warning dog owners of an increase in the number of cowardly attacks on animals. The warning has been issued through social media and relates particularly to an increase in attacks in the Elche area where dogs have been targeted. In the particular instances being warned about, sausages have had nails inserted in them, which are then left in parks and open public spaces and then eaten by the dogs. In the past two days, two dogs have had to undergo emergency treatment so save their lives as a result of them eating these dangerous foods. The police warn dog owners to be on

alert in order to avoid your pet becoming an innocent victim, and if you spot any to call 091 (or 112 if you don´t speak Spanish) to report the location. An investigation is underway to try to

identify anybody responsible for the attack who the police will deal with under the full powers of the laws regarding the mistreatment of animals.

Officers from Torrevieja Local Police have been recognised for intervening in a bank robbery in the town. The Mayor of Torrevieja, José Manuel Dolón, announced that three officers from the Operational Reinforcement Group (G.R.O.) of the Local Police of Torrevieja have been awarded the Cross of Police Merit with Blue Distinction by the Generalitat Valenciana for their intervention in a bank robbery. The officers intervened in a bank office in Torrevieja, when a man, apparently

armed with a pistol, kept the bank manager at gunpoint then tried to escape with the money in October, 2017. The awards have been granted to the Inspector S-04, and the agents A-165 and I-085 who managed to free the manager, an action that is worthy of the distinction which was awarded for “directing or executing successfully a service of extraordinary difficulty or importance in which relevant professional or civic qualities have been demonstrated”.

bonding and stress relief for up to eight hours. They will encourage stressed co-workers to unwind together by cuddling in a purpose built relaxation tent, which is inspired by Moroccan and Indian relaxation practices. Cuddling and skin-to-skin contact promotes the release of happiness hormone Serotonin and Oxytocin, which can influence social behaviour and emotions. Tina Benson, managing director at Team Tactics said: "Team building is at the centre of our business, and we're always looking for new ways to help employees across the UK become more connected with their colleagues. We know it's something completely new and it might not be for everyone, but the science is already there – we're just putting it to the test!" The sessions, which are for groups of between four and 20 people, start with a talking session where colleagues are asked to discuss negative traits in their colleagues. They can also raise any general issues or problems they have. The professional cuddlers, who will run the sessions, must have experience in a similar role and ideally will have a psychology background or qualification.

The AECC office in Playa Flamenca, located on the lower floor of the Commercial Centre is due to reopen after the summer break on Monday 3rd September. The team, all rested and raring to go will be available from 10am till 1pm Monday to Friday. The office offers several services such as: booking cancer screening appointments and check-ups, mammograms, smear tests, prostate checks and skin cancer examinations, and to help with any concerns or questions about Cancer. The office is close to Supercor supermarket and next to The Lansdowne Bar and can also be reached by telephone on 965 329 841. All information is also available on our website: Mariaandthepinkladies.es The team also staff an enquiry desk in Zenia Boulevard every Monday between 11.00 am and 2.00pm where advice can also be given and screenings arranged. There are lots of enjoyable and exciting events planned for the 2018-2019 fundraising campaign which will be announced over the coming weeks and months so keep an eye on The Costa Blanca People for further information. Maria and The Pink Ladies want to thank everyone for their continued and generous support.

Spanish cyclist dies aged 43 Former professional cyclist and later Paralympic medallist Javier Otxoa has died at his home in Alhaurín de la Torre (Málaga province) just six days before his 44thbirthday. His funeral was today held on Saturday, and the Spanish Adapted Cycling Cup national tournament, which bears his name and was due to be held in Javier's home town on 2nd September has been cancelled as a mark of respect. Otxoa, born in Barakaldo in the Basque Country in 1974, was not a Paralympic cyclist until 17 years ago; until then, he was a professional in mainstream cycling. He won a stage of the 2000 Tour de France, flying to victory at the peak of the Hautacam mountain some 10 minutes ahead of Lance Armstrong – who went on to win the Tour but was later disqualified for doping. Javier's stunning victory flung him and his team, Kelme-Costa Blanca, into the spotlight and made both of them a household name.

But his euphoria was short-lived when he and his twin brother Ricardo Otxoa, also an up-and-coming professional and Kelme-Costa Blanca rider, were hit by a car in February 2001 on the Málaga-Cártama motorway whilst training. Ricardo was killed outright and Javier left disabled as a result of damage to his brain. Javier was in a coma for 62 days with a crushed lung and four smashed vertebrae, and until he woke up, he was not expected to survive – in fact, his parents had reserved a niche next to Ricardo's in the cemetery in Barakaldo after doctors had told them there was practically no hope. According to the twins' brother Andoni, the family was told if Javier woke up, he would be 'like a vegetable'. He was not, although his personality changed – he was less emotional, no longer cried, was more distant, spoke 'in cold blood' about his brother as though 'he was not willing to let Ricardo's death affect him', could not remember the accident and, although his memory of before the tragedy was intact, he 'would not remember what he had done the day before', Andoni said. Javier's road to recovery was long and difficult – at first, he was unable to speak, and would blink twice for 'no' and once for 'yes' when the family spoke to him; in fact, when he first smiled, they

were ecstatic at his progress. The 26year-old's long rehabilitation took place at the Aita Menni Centre in Málaga, but he would never completely recover.

Sporting hero Yet even this did not keep the national sporting hero off his bike: he went on to win a silver and a gold at the Paralympics in Athens in 2004 and the same again in Peking 2008. Javier spoke out publicly as part of a national campaign calling for driver awareness of cyclists after half of a sixstrong triathlon team from Jávea was killed on the N-332 highway in Oliva on 7th May, 2017 – a crash that left another two of the team, including the son of one of the deceased, so badly battered that they are still undergoing intense physiotherapy and are not yet able to ride again. The Vuelta a España – Spain's version of the Tour de France – set off from Málaga on the day of Javier's death, and a reporter in sports newspaper As says it 'looked as though he was waiting' for the competition to head his way before he passed away, 'so he could be surrounded by bikes'. His death has been described as 'the result of a long illness', but the actual cause, and whether or not it was related to his ordeal 17 years ago, has not been confirmed.

Booze ban set for tourist hotspots in Spain British holidaymakers are in for a surprise with free alcohol on package holidays set to be banned in Spain. The Balearic Islands government is set to crackdown on boozy all-inclusive trips in Mallorca and Ibiza by bringing in new regulation. It comes after a string of laws recently introduced by the local government in a bid to control unruly tourists in areas such as Magaluf. The new rules suggest tourists must order and be served dinks from a waiter, which they will have to pay for, instead of hitting the bar without a wallet at what are currently all-inclusive hotels. This also stretches to holidaymakers sitting outside of the main dining area during allocated meal times, while free drinks in mini bars will also be strictly off limits.

And the new regulation won’t just hit tourists, hotel staff will have to seriously change the way they operate too. Allinclusive hotels will have to legally register the business with the government so they can be appropriately monitored. In order for hotels to be granted a licence, 70 percent of guests must be served efficiently in a bid to tackle overcrowding and long queues. Meanwhile, the authorities are taking a strong stance on plastic waste by banning single-use plastic cups and plates which all-inclusive resorts depend on. Although it is not clear when the changes will come into practice, they are not set to come into effect before the end of the summer.

More Valsartan Royal British Legion recreates historic pilgrimage blood-pressure Members of the Hondón Valley Branch of The Royal British Legion joined thousands of Armed Forces veterans and supporters from across the UK and worldwide in a pilgrimage of remembrance to some of WW1’s most poignant sites. A spectacular two-mile march through Ypres to the Commonwealth War Grave Commission’s Menin Gate Memorial, led by 1,100 Standard Bearers, was the culmination of the three day event which saw the 2,200 participants visit the WW1 trenches, battlefields and cemeteries of France and Belgium. Mr Roger Kingham and Mr Neil Pavitt attended the Great Pilgrimage 90 as

Mr Neil Pavitt, Parade Marshal District North Spain, a member of the Hondón Valley Branch said: “Being part of such an historic event and representing my Branch in commemorating those that lost their lives in the First World War, was an honour and something I will never forget.” The Branch Chairman, Ian McNeil said: “The Branch members are extremely proud that Neil and Roger represented the Hondon Valley Branch in this event, recreating the Great Pilgrimage of 1928 and were also able to visit various

cemeteries, museums and trenches.” Bob Gamble, The Royal British Legion’s Head of Commemorative Events, said: “GP90, was the Legion’s biggest membership event in modern history and is a suitable tribute from the members of The Royal British Legion in honour of the First World War generation, echoing the way the British Legion community commemorated the 10th anniversary of the conflict in 1928.” For more information visit: www.britishlegion.org.uk/branches/ho ndon-valley or email the secretary on hondonvalley.secretary@rbl.community

substance which could be cancerous, in some samples. Changes in the manufacturing process at the Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceutical laboratory in China – authorised by the European Directorate of Quality in Medications (EDQM), part of the Council of Europe – involved a fresh battery of tests on drugs containing Valstartan as its principal ingredient or in combination with others. The traces of NDMA have led to numerous countries being placed on immediate alert. As a result, the Spanish Medications and Healthcare Products Agency (AEMPS) had already withdrawn several batches in July, but has now announced another list of the drugs are to

carefully on their pill boxes, and return to their GP for a new prescription straight away. Patients should not stop taking their pills in the meantime, since the risk to health of hypertension being un-medicated is greater than that present in Valsartan if taken for a few more days. Boxes can be taken to the pharmacy to check whether they are part of the withdrawn batches and can be replaced without cost to the patient. Those retailed by 17 pharmaceutical laboratories are affected: Almus, Aurovitas, Kern Pharma, Alter, Combix, Cinfa, Normon, Ranbaxy, Stada, Pensa, Qualigen, Ratiopharm, Sandoz, Stada Generics, Tarbis, Tecnimede and Tedec-Meiji.

Franco’s family to Nationwide restrictions on ‘take care’of remains hoverboard and segway use after exhumation The family of Francisco Franco will take possession of his remains after they are exhumed, one of his grandchildren was reported as saying at the weekend. Spain’s Socialist government under Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez passed a decree allowing for the exhumation of the dictator’s remains from a vast mausoleum in the Valle de los Caidos (Valley of the Fallen) near Madrid.

“Of course we will take care of the remains of my grandfather, we will not leave them in the hands of the government,” Francis Franco, one of the general’s seven grandchildren, told conservative daily La Razon. The decision to exhume his body — probably by the end of the year, according to Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo — has divided Spain and opened old wounds. Critics say it is unacceptable to give such ostentatious recognition to a brutal

dictator. But others who remain nostalgic for the Franco era are opposed to the move. And then there are those who believe his remains should stay there because the monument is part of Spain’s history. His family had objected to the exhumation in a letter to the abbot responsible for the imposing basilica where his remains are laid. However, Calvo said if Franco’s family refused to transfer his remains to the family vault, the government will pick a spot to bury him. “I think they are going to exhume it by force, and then we will see if it was done legally,” the grandson told the newspaper, saying the family was not planning to challenge it because spending money to oppose the government would be “a waste of time”. General Franco ruled Spain with an iron fist from the end of the country’s 1936-39 civil war until his death in 1975. Built by Franco’s regime between 1940 and 1959 — in part by the forced labour of some 20,000 political prisoners — the mausoleum holds the remains of around 37,000 dead from both sides of the civil war, which was triggered by Franco’s rebellion against an elected Republican government. It was long used as a place to pay tribute to Franco on the anniversary of his death, but that was stopped by a 2007 law.

Local councils across Spain have started to issue bye-laws limiting the use of electric scooters, 'hoverboards' and segways. A method of transport fast growing in popularity across Europe, hoverboards and segways – the latter being capable of reaching speeds of up to 30 kilometres per hour – nevertheless pose risks to their users as well as pedestrians and other vehicles. Barcelona has announced a ban on cyclists on pavements and is set to ban hoverboards and segways, who must use cycle lanes if available or travel on roads if not, and has limited their speeds to 30 kilometres per hour even when they are capable of moving faster. Fines of between €100 and €500 will be imposed for anyone who fails to comply. Madrid is looking to ban hoverboards and segways from pavements, road surfaces, cycle lanes, bus and taxi lanes and one-way, single-carriageway street. Only certain out-of-town bike lanes and a few roads signposted accordingly will be legal for these vehicles to use, plus a limited number of pedestrian crossings – and pedestrians will always have priority, especially children and the disabled. Valencia, Málaga, Granada, Zaragoza, Cáceres (Extremadura) and Vitoria (Basque Country) among other provincial capitals are planning restrictions in a similar line to those of Barcelona. Granada will ban electric scooters and segways from hills with a gradient of more than 15 percent in a downward direction, and from the entire Alhambra Palace

complex and neighbouring roads. Valencia's transport councillor Giuseppe Grezzi says dedicated spaces will be set up in the city for these vehicles, and they will be treated in a similar way to bicycles, with some restricted access allowed on pedestrianised streets. But Valencia does not want to be too harsh on segways and hoverboards – Mayor Joan Ribó says they help reduce

traffic in the city and do not pollute the atmosphere. “If you look at traffic data for cars in Valencia, you'll see that it's reducing, despite the growing economic activity here. That's a good thing,” Ribó admits. “And if you look at air-pollution data for the city, the reduction in motor traffic is also good. So, on that basis, hoverboards are very welcome.”

Dog Beach survives Appeal Following complaints from neighbours, a judge has dismissed their case and dogs are still allowed on the designated beaches in Torrevieja for the summer. A judge has dismissed a precautionary claim made by the community of owners of properties adjacent to Cala del Moro in Torrevieja, which aimed to suspend the use of the beach by dogs. The residents had requested the precautionary measure within the contentious-administrative appeal filed against the town hall that had made two beaches, Punta Margallo and Cala del Mal Paso as

useable by dogs accompanied by their owners. The court has rejected the appeal as there is “no irreparable damage” to the community, because the permission for dogs to use the beach is only temporary, and only for this year. In the appeal, the residents had asked the court to suspend the use of the beach by dogs, as they are being deprived of continually using the beach in a way they had been doing so far. The beach for dogs has survived this appeal, but the courts will revisit the case after the summer.

Beach ashtrays The Municipal Department for Beaches for the Town Hall of Orihuela, which is headed by the City Councillor Luisa Boné, is to distribute 2,000 ashtrays to beach users in Orihuela Costa this week. Luisa Boné has pointed out that "the ashtrays have a conical shape so that they can easily be stuck in the sand, they are reusable and very useful for collecting cigarette butts and small wastes such as chewing gum or nut shells, so waste that is not readily biodegradable and is difficult to remove from the sand can be contained." The Municipal Department for Beaches reminded people that cigarette butts take up to ten years to

break down in the sea and accumulate in the sand even longer. In addition, due to their small size and light weight, it is very difficult to be removed by the cleaning services. This adult education campaign follows on from the campaign launched earlier this summer in various schools in Orihuela Costa, where handbooks on good beach practices were distributed to teach the children how to behave on the beach. At the beginning of the summer, funny stickers with childlike motifs were also affixed to the foot showers on the beaches to teach the children that they should not play with water and should use it sparingly.

Bombing remembrance in Torrevieja Saturday marked the 80th anniversary of the bombing of Torrevieja by Italian aircraft, leaving 19 dead and countless injured. A special homage to the victims was held in the town in remembrance. Although every year Torrevieja remembers those killed on 25th August by the fascist bomb attack in 1938, this year marked a special date as it was 80 years since the attack. On that fateful day, Italian fascist bombers, by order of Franco, bombarded the civilian population of Torrevieja, causing 19 deaths and numerous injuries. It was a time during the Spanish Civil war, when the planes dropped 60 bombs onto the city, ripping through 25 homes and causing serious damage to buildings in the town centre and the port area, leaving 19 people dead

and 45 injured, 25 of whom were civilians and 20 military. Although shrouded in secrecy throughout history, like much of the Franco era, these days the horrific incident is remembered annually by those who religiously attend to reflect on a past time and remember those involved. The fight still continues against fascism, and this memorial will never forget the event, or those affected by the past, or the future. On Saturday at noon, a memorial gathering was held on Paseo Marítimo Juan Aparicio, at the Hombre del Mar monument, where information on what happened was displayed, those who attended included relatives of those who were killed remembering their loved ones.

Scientists develop a Catalan ex-leader Puigdemont drug that prevents makes surprise visit to Scotland weight gain A pill to stop obesity may be on the horizon after the discovery of a protein that makes people fat. It would be the 'holy grail' of modern medicine - helping reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and even dementia. When the enzyme known as CerS1 (ceramide synthase 1) was blocked in mice they remained lean - even after gorging on high fat food and the Australian team is hopeful the same will apply to humans. They hailed it as a "major step forward" in combating obesity and related diseases. Their drug, dubbed PO53, was developed to specifically target the protein because it was believed to be linked to insulin resistance in muscles, liver and fat. Surprisingly, it did not prevent the lab rodents' levels of blood sugar rising - but lipids instead. These are fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides that increase the risk of heart attacks and other illnesses.T he researchers found stopping CerS1 burned them up in skeletal muscle - meaning the mice had less adipose tissue. Corresponding author Professor Nigel Turner, of the University of New South Wales, said: "We anticipated that targeting this enzyme would have insulin-sensitising, rather than antiobesity effects. However, since obesity is a strong risk factor for many different diseases including cardiovascular disease and cancer, any new therapy in this space could have widespread benefits." Professor Turner and colleagues said the results published in Nature Communications were unexpected. They were intending to stop insulin resistance that triggers Type 2 diabetes, the form caused by eating junk food, rather than obesity itself. But it is the first time scientists have been able to develop a drug that successfully destroys lipid producing

proteins that cause metabolic disease. This makes it a significant advancement in the understanding and prevention of a range of chronic health conditions. The ceramide proteins are lipids are involved in regulating metabolism. There are six of them. But the role of each is not fully understood. Inhibition of certain ones is predicted to produce significant benefits for metabolic health, whereas with others it is likely to be detrimental. But drugs with sufficient potency, selectivity and suitable properties for use in a living organism have been elusive until now.

Fat reduction The molecule PO53 stopped the activity of CerS1 in its tracks - reducing fat across the whole body without effecting insulin resistance in mice fed a high-fat diet. Prof Turner and colleagues believe it was due to the drug boosting the oxidation of fatty acids in the muscles of the animals. Co-corresponding author Prof Anthony Don, of the University of Sydney, added: "From here, I would like to develop drugs which target both the CerS1 and 6 enzymes together, and see whether it produces a much stronger anti-obesity and insulin sensitising response. "Although these drugs need more work before they are suitable for use in the clinic, our work so far has been a very important step in that direction." In Australia two in three adults are classified as being overweight or obese, about the same as Britain which has the worst rates in Europe. The researchers said the findings open up a potential new therapeutic avenue for the treatment of obesity. But further studies are required to determine if they translate to humans.

Catalonia’s deposed president Carles Puigdemont arrived in Scotland on Friday (24th August), in his first trip abroad after a Spanish court dropped a European arrest warrant for him. “He landed in Edinburgh from Brussels on Friday afternoon,” Catalan’s regional government, which had kept the visit secret, said in a statement. Puigdemont will take part in international diplomatic forum

Beyond Borders on Sunday at the invitation of its organisers, the statement said. Sacked as Catalan president after a failed secession bid on 27th October, Puigdemont and several members of his executive fled to Brussels several days later. He was then arrested in Germany at the end of March and freed on bail 10 days later, waiting for a German court

decision on an extradition request by Spain, where he is wanted over his role in the independence drive. Puigdemont returned to Belgium when Spain’s Supreme Court dropped the arrest warrant in late July. He can now travel where he likes, except to Spain, where he is still wanted for rebellion, which carries up to 25 years in jail, and for misuse of public funds.

Spanish police smash Europe’s ‘biggest’ illegal turtle farm Spanish police have dismantled Europe’s biggest illegal turtle and tortoise farm, seizing over 1,100 of the animals, including several highly endangered species. Officers arrested two German men suspected of operating the farm on the holiday island of Mallorca, as well as a Spanish owner of an exotic pet store in Barcelona who sold the animals raised on the farm, police said in a statement. Another two Germans and a Spaniards are under investigation. “Officers searched the farm and found that it was much bigger than expected and its aim was to breed at an industrial level different species of sea and land turtles,” the police statement said. A “land turtle” is more commonly called a tortoise in

English. The farm near the town of Llucmajor in the south of the Mediterranean island was the “biggest illegal turtle farm in Europe,” it added. Police seized over 1,100 turtles and tortoises of 62 different species, including 14 of the world’s most endangered kinds such as the radiated tortoise from Madagascar, the Vietnamese pond turtle and the Chinese red-knecked turtle, as well as over 750 eggs, as part of their operation. Almost all turtle species are endangered. Their eggs are considered a delicacy and they are also slaughtered for their meat, skin and shells. The three suspects face charges of trafficking in endangered species and money laundering.

Enjoy the Pistoleros and support the orphanage On Saturday 29th September there is opportunity to watch the Pistoleros in action and raise money for the San José Obrero orphanage at the same time. The Pistoleros are a ‘westerner’ club who re-enact scenes with traditional western themes. Their shows are full of outlaws, saloon girls and preachers and the dress and activities are authentic ones. They entertain people across the Costa Blanca and now it’s the turn of Carmen’s Bar in El Chaperral to host one of their events. And it’s in a good cause. The San José Obrero Orphanage in Orihuela is desperately in need of funds. It’s home to 70 children from seven to 18 who all need feeding

and clothing and those little extras that we all take for granted. On 29th September between 2pm and 6pm the Pistoleros will be entertaining the crowds with their unique show including country music and dance. There will be a hog roast and a raffle with many donated prizes. So far the main raffle prizes have come from an anonymous doner who wants to be known as ‘Boris’. This is a very good cause who appreciate the support that the local community has been giving them. Let’s hope for a good turnout on the 29th too.

An outdoor fire pit or chiminea (a pot-bellied, freestanding fireplace) can truly transform a patio or deck area into an openair room - and one that is cozy and warm in all but the most wintery of weather conditions. What is nice about most fire pits and chimineas is that they are portable, something an outdoor fireplace is not. They are also easier to set up because they require no building permits or expensive, time-consuming building of chimney stacks. Fire pits and chimineas can be put anywhere you already have your patio or deck area set up, or in a sheltered courtyard basically anywhere you want to create a gathering spot. Another big plus is that they can fit into almost any landscape design seamlessly because they come in a variety of natural materials such as stone, tile, metal, and coloured concrete so they look very relaxed, and part of your existing landscape. They also come in a variety of shapes and designs, ranging from fire pit tables, to the more traditional rock fire pits on the ground. In addition, you can use whatever fuel is best for you to enjoy your fire because fire pits can be fueled with natural gas, gel and bio ethanol, wood, or wood substitutes. In fact, here are some basic tips to help you get the most out of

www.costablancapeople.com

your chiminea or fire pit, including picking out the best fuel to burn: Some basic outdoor fire pit and chiminea tips: • Make sure your fire pit is completely level and on stable ground. • Always place fire pits away from combustable materials in the landscape. • Burn dry, well-seasoned firewoood. • Usually hardwoods such as oak, madrone, maple, hickory and ash burn cleaner than softwoods such as fir, pine or cedar. • For smoke-free burning, they can be fueled with natural gas. • To reduce pollution and reduce the chance of sparks, choose wood substitutes such as wax-based logs or compressed logs made of sawdust. • Compressed logs can also be made from recycled coffee grounds, mixed with molasses and some wax, to burn cleaner, give off a taller and more natural flame, and have a

slightly sweet scent rather than a chemical smell. • Gel fueled fire pits are great for anywhere log fires are restricted such as apartment balconies. But they are also good to use for your deck, patio, porch, balcony, or gazebo because they are a no mess, no hassle way to have a fire. • Always observe fire ordinances and do not use your fire pit on no-burn or windy days. • Keep a fire extinguisher or garden hose nearby. • Never leave a fire unattended. • Never overfill a fire pit or chiminea. So do not let the fact that the weather is cooling off keep you from enjoying your outdoor areas. Have a cook-out, roast marshmallows, sit around and tell “campfire stories”, or have a romantic evening - basically extend your summer a bit more throughout the year. Fire pits and chimineas are great for doing just that - so snuggle up and enjoy! Marc Vijverberg

Welcome to BUENOS AIRES with Vivalia Travel

B

uenos Aires is the capital and most populous city of Argentina. The city is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, on the South American continent's southeastern coast. "Buenos Aires" can be translated as "fair winds" or "good airs", but the first one was the meaning intended by the founders in the 16th century, by the use of the original name "Real de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre The city of Buenos Aires is neither part of Buenos Aires Province nor the Province's capital; rather, it is an autonomous district. In 1880, after decades of political infighting, Buenos Aires was federalized and removed from Buenos Aires Province. Buenos Aires is a top tourist destination, and is known for its preserved Spanish/Europeanstyle architecture and rich cultural life. Buenos Aires held the 1st Pan American Games in 1951 as well as hosting two venues in the 1978 FIFA World Cup. Buenos Aires will host the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics and the 2018 G20 summit. Buenos Aires is a multicultural city, being home to multiple ethnic and religious groups. Several languages are spoken in the city in addition to Spanish, contributing to its culture and the dialect spoken in the city and in some other parts of the country. This is because in the last 150 years the city, and the country in general, has been a major recipient of millions of immigrants from all over the world, making it a melting pot where several ethnic groups live together and being considered as one of the most diverse cities of the Americas. History Colonial times Seaman Juan Díaz de Solís, navigating in the name of Spain, was the first European to reach the Río de la Plata in 1516. His expedition was cut short when he was killed during an attack by the native Charrúa tribe in what is now Uruguay. The city of Buenos Aires was first established as Ciudad de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre after Our Lady of Bonaria on 2 February 1536 by a Spanish expedition led by Pedro de Mendoza. The settlement founded by Mendoza was located in what is today the San Telmo district of Buenos Aires, south of the city centre. From its earliest days, Buenos Aires depended primarily on trade. During most of the 17th century, Spanish ships were menaced by pirates, so they

developed a complex system where ships with military protection were dispatched to Central America in a convoy from Seville the only port allowed to trade with the colonies, to Lima, Peru and from it to the inner cities of the viceroyalty. Because of this, products took a very long time to arrive in Buenos Aires, and the taxes generated by the transport made them prohibitive. Sensing these feelings, Charles III of Spain progressively eased the trade restrictions and finally declared Buenos Aires an open port in the late 18th century. The capture of Porto Bello by British forces also fueled the need to foster commerce via the Atlantic route, to the detriment of Lima-based trade. War of independence During the British invasions of the Río de la Plata, British forces attacked Buenos Aires twice. In 1806 the British successfully invaded Buenos Aires, but an army from Montevideo led by Santiago de Liniers defeated them. In the brief period of British rule, the viceroy Rafael Sobremonte managed to escape to Córdoba and designated this city as capital. Buenos Aires became the capital again after its liberation, but Sobremonte could not resume his duties as viceroy. Santiago de Liniers, chosen as new viceroy, prepared the city against a possible new British attack and repelled the attempted invasion of 1807. The militarization generated in society changed the balance of power favorably for the criollos, as well as the development of the Peninsular War in Spain. Historically, Buenos Aires has been Argentina's main venue of liberal, free-trading and foreign ideas, while many of the provinces, especially those to the north-west, advocated a more nationalistic and Catholic approach to political and social issues. 19th and 20th century During most of the 19th century, the political status of the city remained a sensitive subject. It was already the capital of Buenos Aires Province, and between 1853 and 1860 it was the capital of the seceded State of Buenos Aires. The issue was fought out more than once on the battlefield, until the matter was finally settled in 1880 when the city was federalized and became the seat of government, with its mayor appointed by the president. The Casa Rosada became In addition to the wealth generated by the Buenos Aires Customs and the fertile pampas, railroad development in the

second half of the 19th century increased the economic power of Buenos Aires as raw materials flowed into its factories. A leading destination for immigrants from Europe, particularly Italy and Spain, from 1880 to 1930 Buenos Aires became a multicultural city that ranked itself with the major European capitals. 21st century In 1996, following the 1994 reform of the Argentine Constitution, the city held its first mayoral elections under the new statutes, with the mayor's title formally changed to "Head of Government". The winner was Fernando de la Rúa, who would later become President of Argentina from 1999 to 2001. The 2015 elections were the first to use an electronic voting system in the city, similar to the one used in Salta Province. Climate Buenos Aires has a humid subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. As a result of maritime influences from the adjoining Atlantic Ocean, the climate is temperate with extreme temperatures being rare. Because the city is located in an area where the Pampero and Sudestada winds pass by, the weather is variable due to these contrasting air masses. Summers are hot and humid. The warmest month is January, with a daily average of 24.9 °C Heat waves are common during summers. Winters are cold with mild temperatures during the day and cold nights. Spring and autumn are characterized by changeable weather conditions. Cold air from the south can bring cooler temperatures while hot humid air from the north bring hot temperatures. Culture Strongly influenced by European culture, Buenos Aires is sometimes referred to as the "Paris of South America". The city has the busiest live theatre industry in Latin America, with scores of theaters and productions. In fact, every weekend, there are about 300 active theatres with plays, a number that places the city as 1st worldwide, more than either London, New York or Paris, cultural Meccas in themselves. Buenos Aires is the home of the Teatro Colón, an internationally rated opera house. There are several symphony orchestras and choral societies. The city has numerous museums related to history, fine arts, modern arts, decorative arts, popular arts, sacred art, arts and crafts, theatre and popular music, as well as the preserved homes of noted art collectors, writers, composers and artists.

Grandparents don't love our adopted child Our adopted little girl brings us a lot of happiness. The problem is that we have suspected for some time now that my parents don’t love her like their other, natural grandchildren. The other grandchildren are receiving better presents, and better treatment. We are very upset. I talked to my sister about it, and she agrees with me that Mum and Dad are not treating our daughter in the same way.

This is a very sad situation because there is an innocent child involved here. You must speak to you parents. Remain calm, and don’t accuse them of anything - just point out the differences. It might be a good idea to take your sister along for support as an outsider’s opinion would help greatly. The little girl will almost certainly notice the distinction as she gets older. Bring this point to your parents’ attention, and ask them if they are aware that they treat their blood grandchildren more favourably.

Every year the last weeks of the fair are full of festive activities, as the port is celebrating the fiestas of their Patron Saint, la Mare de Déu de Loreto. This means that visitors can not only visit the fair, but, depending of the day of the visit, can watch processions, listen to music, watch fireworks or visit the traditional Bous al Mar, when bulls and cows chase youngsters from the quay into the sea. You can find a programme at https://www.javea.com/program a-de-las-fiestas-del-loreto-2018/ Until the 6th September the artists and craft people will set up their stalls with original craft work every evening - apart from 2nd September as there is a firework display) on the sea front promenade in the port. They offer a wide choice of beautiful hand made things; soft and wooden toys, leather bags, belts and purses, pottery, wooden sculptures and little animals made of shells, lamps made of recycled tins and brooches made

of real orchids. There is also a wide range of jewellery made of all sorts of materials: silver, leather, ceramics, macramé and even recycled beer cans. All hand made by the people on the stalls. The fair opens every evening

from 7pm till midnight. More information (also in English) on 639 979 678 and photographs of what to expect in the stalls you can find at http://www.amata.es/JaveaVera no_18.html

Age Concern needs more volunteers They say giving is better than receiving, and by just giving three or four hours a week of your time volunteering for Age Concern, means many people can receive a little support, friendship and comfort. Most of us are retired and soaking up the good life here in Spain, after working a lifetime, but we so often hear that people miss having something worthwhile to occupy themselves. Now is your opportunity to make a difference to people not so fortunate to have a huge circle of friends to fill our days. Age Concern is looking for Drivers - preferably with a Spanish driving licence - but not absolutely necessary - to drive one of its two vehicles collecting beneficiaries from their homes and bringing them to our centre in La Siesta for their coffee mornings and then taking them home. Also, to collect donations of small household items destined for distribution to our shops. Also, a very interesting vacancy exists in the charities lending library at the centre and they need one or two book loving people to act as Librarians managing our library, assisting book borrowers and generally maintaining the book

shelves and stock. The library is only open every Tuesday from 10.30am – 12.30pm. The charity’s shop in Patricio Zammit Street in Torrevieja is extremely busy every day and Age Concern would welcome several volunteers to deal with the multinational customers. Serving, dealing with displays and stock rotation means that this role would suit anyone with retail experience and they would work with an extremely friendly team. The shop is open Monday – Friday 10.30am – 1.30pm and volunteers can choose which day suits them best and if you speak a foreign language that would be a distinct advantage, but not absolutely necessary. The centre in La Siesta, the hub of Age Concern, offers people a host of activities almost on a daily basis and needs one or two additional volunteers to help mornings

from 10.00am – 1.30pm. Every day is different, as volunteers could be making tea or coffee, welcoming people bringing in donations, helping someone with finding information to their particular query, mixing with regular beneficiaries and joining in with their chat, keep the centre tidy and free from obstacles, assisting with the hiring out of mobility aids and their return and even possibly helping with fundraising events. Always different every day, so there is no time to get bored. All positions are open to ladies and gents. To apply, in the first instance telephone 966 786 887 Monday – Friday between 10.00am – 1.30pm to arrange a convenient day and time to pop in and find out how you can help, days, times etc. Your help is invaluable to those not as fortunate as most of us.

Rebecca Serwotka – Your favourite local property expert, of Inmobiliaria Real Estate Agents in Ciudad Quesada & published author of “Moving Forward – 25 Essential Rules For Buying & Selling Real Estate Without Going Crazy.” Request your FREE copy today!Featured on Best Buy Spain – Property TV – Sky Channel 189. If your home has been up for sale for an extended period of time, chances are the market it telling you, it’s probably overpriced! In all honesty a property is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it, so coming to the market above current value, may not do you any favours in attracting the right buyer. Here are 3reasons why buyers don’t make offers on overpriced homes: 1. They don’t want to offend you! As funny as it may seem, this is the number one reason. After touring through your home and being told about the blood, sweat and tears that have gone into your property, not

forgetting pointing out quality and location (to try to justify your price), the buyer can feel embarrassed about their “sensible offer,” however realistic it may be. And to make it easy ontheir ownconscience is to just walk away, rather than make an offer that could be declined. No-one likes to feel like they’ve been turned down. That’s just human nature. 2. Buyers wrongly believe the sellers know their home is overpriced. They think that if they were willing to take a lower figure, they would have reduced the asking price. 3. Buyers assume the seller has already turned down a sensible offer. Heard the saying never assume? Buyers would much rather walk away from a home than go through tough negotiations. What they don’t realize is, the overpriced home may never have had an offer in the first place! Not every overpriced home will sell for less, so be sensible when you’re ready to put your offer forward. Make sure you’ve done your homework and know what comparable homes have been selling for! Selling your home? Enjoy the journey! For more information and guidance on buying and selling, please contact us and we will send you our FREE e-book or log on to: www.homes4u.esto request the link.

What do Spaniards find surprising about living in the UK? British people in Spain have many opinions – often contradictory – about what it is like to live and work in the country. But what do Spaniards think of the UK? According to the National Institute of Statistics (INE), 240,934 Spanish people are living in the United Kingdom. To find out about their impressions, a Spanish paper asked two Facebook groups of Spanish expats in London, which together have over 90,000 members, the following question: what surprised you when you first arrived in the city? Here is a list of the replies: • Carpeted bathrooms • That there are no persiana blinds! • The shape of the taps • Trains with carpet • That people sit on the floor of their office to eat

• People drinking alcohol on the bus or even eating sushi • How elegant the pubs are compared to the 80s bars in Spain • That people drink coffee while they have lunch or dinner • Potato crisps that taste like beef • Potato crisp sandwiches • That they say “cheers” instead of thanks • Socks! Up to the knees whether it’s summer, winter or a wedding • That they say “fair enough” to anything • That there are still milk delivery trucks • The music of the ice cream trucks • That they push you and elbow you but always say “sorry” very politely • That kids eat dinner at 4pm and go to sleep at 7pm • Most children go to school on a scooter • They charge by the week instead of by the month

Balearics biggest drug haul on UK registered yacht Police in Spain have raided a UKregistered yacht seizing almost €17 million worth of cocaine in what is the Balearic Islands’ biggest ever haul. The cocaine was discovered on a luxury UK-registered yacht close to the Ibiza coast. Officials say it is the biggest cocaine haul they have ever discovered on the Balearic Islands and comes hot on the heels of 300 kilos of the Class A drug being intercepted a few days before around 15 miles from Ibiza. Five people, who were on board the lavish yacht, have been arrested in connection to the load. While the boat was flying a Gibraltar flag, four of the suspects are Dutch and one is German. Half of the cocaine was found in packets tied with ropes and the rest was discovered under the floor of the captain’s cabin in a secret compartment.

Government sends 116 migrants who jumped fence back to Morocco

The Spanish government has sent back to Morocco the 116 Sub-Saharan migrants who managed to get over the border fence last week at the Spanish North African exclave city of Ceuta, police sources have said. The operation is based on an agreement that Spain and Morocco signed in 1992 on the readmission of foreigners who illegally enter Spanish territory. In the document, Morocco agreed to readmit nationals from third countries who enter Spain illegally, if there is a “formal request from (Spanish) authorities.” Around 300 migrants rushed the border in Ceuta using shears to cut the fence and throwing quicklime, battery acid and faeces at officers. They breached the fence at Finca Berrocal, one of the weakest sections and the location of another incident in July when more than 600 undocumented migrants made it through into the city. The Spanish government contacted

the authorities in Rabat to reactivate the mechanism of express deportations after the July incident. Spanish ministers requested that Morocco take back migrants in the case of another mass assault on the border. Rabat accepted the request, but the deal had been kept secret until now. Interior Ministry sources admitted that the usual procedure is for migrants to be returned to their country of origin, not the country that they entered Spain from. However, the 1992 deal includes the possibility of sending them back to the point of entry. “The key point is that they entered from Morocco, even though they are not Moroccan,” the same sources explained. The ministry sources added that this is not the first time the measure has been applied, although other occasions have been “few.” Police sources in Ceuta recall such deportations under the 1992 deal,

but not on the scale of this one. In fact, since December 2017 there have been several mass assaults by between 300 and 600 people, but this agreement had not been used up until now. So far, the deportations have only involved the migrants who arrived in Ceuta on last Wednesday, but there are more than 1,000 people in the CETI (which has a capacity for just 512), the majority of whom arrived by jumping over the border. In October 2017, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg ruled that Spain had violated the European Human Rights Convention when it deported two migrants from Mali and the Ivory Coast, who crossed the border fence dividing Morocco and Spain. Spain was ordered to pay each of the migrants €5,000 in damages. The Spanish government has since filed an appeal against the ruling, arguing that there “was no expulsion, but rather prevention of entry.”

RUSH TO VISIT FRANCO’S TOMB BEFORE HIS REMAINS ARE MOVED Thousands of Spaniards have rushed to visit the late dictator’s tomb before his remains are moved. Francisco Franco, who ruled Spain with an iron fist from the end of the 1936-39 civil war until his death in 1975, is buried in an imposing basilica carved into a mountain-face just outside Madrid with a 150-metre (490-feet) cross towering over it. Visitor numbers to the site - known as the Valley of the Fallen - have soared since Spain’s new Socialist government announced shortly after it came to power in June that it will remove Franco’s remains from the basilica. Spain’s national heritage agency that runs the monument said 38,269 people visited in July compared to 23,135 in June and 25,532 in July last year. Javier Botia, 40, and his partner Angeles Abellan, 42, two agricultural engineers from the south eastern region of Murcia, say they had long planned to visit the monument even though they did not sympathise with Franco and felt “now was the time”.

“This is history, it is part of our heritage, it’s very impressive,” says Botia as he stands on the basilica’s vast esplanade and looks up at the giant granite and concrete cross, visible for kilometres (miles) around. “I feel conflicting emotions, because on the one hand it is a place that symbolises much suffering, but it also has a lot of history,” Botia adds in reference to the 20,000 political prisoners of the Franco regime who helped build the Valley of the Fallen between 1940 and 1959. “One must know the bad side of history, so as not to repeat it.” The monument holds the remains of more than 30,000 victims from both sides of the civil war, which was triggered by Franco’s rebellion against an elected Republican government. Franco dedicated the site to “all the fallen” of the conflict in an attempt at reconciliation, but only two graves are marked - those of Franco and Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera, the founder of the fascist Falangist party. Both are covered with fresh flowers.

Christian Espert, a 30-year-old soldier from the eastern region of Valencia wearing the football jersey of Spain’s national team, poses for a picture at the site holding a red and yellow Spanish flag. He agrees that Franco’s remains should be removed because “they can hurt the feelings of many people”. Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said his government wants to remove Franco from the site because “Spain can’t allow symbols that divide Spaniards”. But his plans quickly ran into opposition from Franco’s family, which has refused to give permission for the exhumation. Historic relevance Some visitors to the site believe Franco’s remains should remain because the monument is part of history. “This is the country’s heritage and it should be respected,” says Nevado, a 22-year-old law student from the southern city of Cordoba, who counts himself as a critic of Franco. Miguel Pintor, a 62-year-old public

worker from Madrid agrees, saying he returned to visit the site because he was angered by the government’s plans. “I don’t think it hurts anyone,” he says, adding Franco died more than 40 years ago and the civil war ended nearly 80 years ago. “The dead should be left in peace.” While the government’s decision has been praised by associations representing the victims of Franco’s regime, more than

1,000 people protested at the Valley of the Fallen last month after a far-right group called for a pilgrimage to prevent “the plunder” of his grave. In another sign of unrest about the decision, police said they are investigating five fires that were deliberately set on Monday within the grounds of the Valley of the Fallen.

Tourism replaces construction as Spain’s main employment driver Tourism has been one of the main engines behind Spain’s economic recovery and it is now the most important source of employment. According to a survey by the Spanish Institute of Tourism (Turespaña), 2.65 million people – 2.17 million waged workers and 483,861 private contractors – were employed in the sector in spring. This represents 13.7 percent of Spain’s working population (19.34 million people) meaning tourism has overtaken construction as the top employer sector in the country. Indeed, employment in tourism has reached nearly the same level as employment in construction during Spain’s property boom. In 2007, when the property bubble was about to burst, 2.7 million people were working in construction, according to the country’s National Statistics Institute (INE). The working population at that time, however, was 20.5 million people, meaning construction accounted for 13.1 percent of all employment. With record-high numbers of tourists

visiting Spain, the demand for workers in the tourism sector has been steadily rising. According to Turespaña, more than 2.2 million people were employed in tourism in the second trimester of 2014. Four years later that figure is now 2.6 million – a rise of nearly 20 percent. The tourism boom has pushed the service sector to its highest level yet with 75.5 percent of Spain’s working population employed in a service-related industry. The downside is that a large amount of available work in the tourism sector is temporary due to its seasonal nature. Between April and May, 35.2 percent of all salaried workers in the industry were on a limited term contract – 9.6 percentage points more than the average worker in the service industry and almost 8.5 percentage points more than the average worker across all industries in the Spanish labour market. The seasonality of tourism means employment in the sector fluctuates greatly between summer and winter.

In the first trimester of 2017, more than 2,660,915 people were working in the tourism sector; three months later that figure had dropped by 141,000 and by the first semester of 2018, there were 240,000 fewer workers. Over the past year, the number of people working in tourism on an indefinite contract grew by 6.7 percent, compared to the 2.7 percent rise in temporary workers. While 35.2 percent of tourism workers were working on a temporary basis in spring, this is almost one percentage point less than the same period last year. Catalonia is the region that receives the highest number of tourists in Spain, with 19 million foreigners and five million Spaniards visiting the region in 2017, according to the INE. It is also the region that employs the greatest number of tourism workers, with 457,944 people employed in the sector in the second trimester of this year. Andalusia comes in second place with 433,853 workers – a 7.5 percent increase upon last year’s figures from the same period. Although Madrid

receives fewer visitors than the Balearic and Canary Islands, it has more people working in tourism – 400,000 compared to 169,000 and 244,000, respectively. Low Salaries Tourism may have replaced construction as Spain’s main employment driver but it cannot compete when it comes to salaries. According to a study by the INE, the average annual salary of a construction

worker in 2008 was €20,706.7 - 48 percent more than the €14,000 received by an average hospitality worker. In 2016, the last year with available data, hospitality workers were earning €14,125.3 – just 1.2 percent more. Salaries in construction meanwhile have risen 7 percent to €22,163.46. Hospitality employees were paid an average of €9.32 an hour in the first semester of 2018, while construction workers received €11.73 an hour.

Balconing makes a comeback, with six dead this summer The latest victim of balconing had spent just a few hours in Palma de Mallorca in the Balearic Islands before he died. The 23-year-old German man had travelled to the island for a vacation with his friends near Palma beach. Like many other young Germans who spend summer in the tourist hub, where restaurants, stores and bars line the seafront, he went out with his friends to have a drink and some fun. But when he returned that evening, the 23-year-old went to the 12th floor of the hotel he was staying at and, under the effects of a yet to be determined toxic substance, fell from one of the windows in a corridor. He landed in the interior courtyard and died. The young German is the sixth person to die so far this summer from so-called balconing, a term that refers to usually inebriated tourists falling from hotel or apartment block balconies, jumping from balcony-to-balcony in their hotels, or

attempting to launch themselves from great heights into swimming pools. Four more people died after jumping from balconies in hotels and apartments in Magaluf, a beach resort in Mallorca and a 14-year-old teenager was killed after falling from the second floor of a hotel in Muro Beach. Dozens more have been injured after jumping from balconies in establishments across Mallorca and Ibiza. Neither the visitor pamphlets warning tourists against balconing nor the fines for those caught doing it, nor the awareness campaigns from the British Travel Agency Association have been able to put a stop to the practice. While last summer there were only five cases – none of them fatal – this year the number of incidents has skyrocketed. “The Consulate must put more pressure on the British government to create campaigns with people hurt by balconing who can help stop the problem,” says Joan

Espina, the manager of a hotel in Magaluf. “The campaigns they have done in recent years have helped to prevent more accidents.” The hotel industry has worked for years with local authorities and the home countries of balconing victims to try to put a stop to the deadly practice. Hoteliers refuse to take responsibility for the accidents, arguing that their establishments provide hotel guests with information pamphlets, always try to place groups of young people on the ground or lower floors, and comply with both the European and national norms that regulate construction conditions. Inspections are carried out every year to ensure these norms are met, they add. “I work with more than 20 agencies,” says Espina, “and many of them have their own security group that is in charge of carrying out inspections. They don’t send their customers to unsafe establishments.” According to Espina, many hotels

Elton John’s farewell tour includes show in Madrid British artist Elton John’s last-ever tour will stop off at Madrid’s WiZink Centre next June – as yet the only date in Spain confirmed by his promoters. The Farewell Yellow Brick Roadtour starts in the USA on 8th September this year with the first of over 300 concerts on four continents. Over the next two and a half years, the 71-year-old father-of-two from Middlesex will perform in North, Central and South America, Australia, Asia and Europe.

Sir Elton’s European leg will start on 1st May, 2019 in Vienna, Austria and continue until 5th July, 2019 inclusive, in Munich, passing through Madrid on 26th June. Given that tickets are likely to have already sold out – despite the Verified Fan system forcing users to register and blocking bulk-buying – it is possible Elton’s promoters may consider launching a second date in Spain, or an informal appearance at another festival or venue. This is only speculation at present, but an artist of Elton John’s calibre – and the fact he is ending his live performance career after more than half a century –

means fans are very likely to book their places a year in advance. Set to be one of the most spectacular and visual shows the legendary pianist, composer and singer-songwriter has ever put on, Elton says he is very excited about his upcoming tour and can’t wait to see his fans on the road. The artist, who has been married to David Furnish – with whom he has two children – since 2005, expressed his thanks to his extraordinary followers for their overwhelming support throughout his 56-year career.

have even increased security at night to prevent accidents. Magaluf is one of the epicentres of the balconing problem, with one establishment in the resort town, Eden Roc apartments, holding the record for the highest number of accidents. Three people have died here: a 19year-old British woman died in April after trying to enter her apartment from a window, a young Irish man died after jumping from the seventh floor, and an 18-year-old British man died last July after falling from a height of several metres and whose body was not found until the following day. Eden Roc does not advertise via travel agencies and its owners have refused to talk to the press. The establishment has been forced to put up fences to try to curb future accidents. Drug consumption “The consumption of substances leads to highly risky behaviour that you would not have in other circumstances, particularly when it comes to young people,” says

Miquel Roca, professor of psychiatry at the University of the Balearic Islands. The professor is looking to work with doctors from the Son Espases University Hospital on a study into the causes of these types of accidents. “Prevention and change of behaviour campaigns are very complex. If a study was done, we would be able to determine how these campaigns should be used and address them to groups with very specific risk factors,” he explains. Every year the British Travel Agency Association launches campaigns to stop balconing accidents, with pamphlets advising tourists to “never lean (over the balcony), do not cross onto another balcony and do not pass items from one balcony to another over the railing.” But these campaigns seem to have little effect. And as Nikki White, head of the association’s Destination and Sustainability department says, one careless moment “can have a devastating effect, not only on the tourists but on the families and friends who are affected by accidents with irreversible consequences.”

Anonymous hacktivists shut official websites Mystery hackers Anonymous have struck again – this time, shutting down the websites of the National Police, the reigning socialist (PSOE) party and the Constitutional Court. All three organisations assure it has been business as usual since the cyber-attack, but that they had several admin headaches as a result. Anonymous, which – as its name suggests – is an unknown hacktivist group operates across the country, tampering with websites to make its political views, largely left-wing, known to authorities. This time, they were acting within their soi-disant Operation Free Catalunya campaign, which has involved a series of hack attacks ever since the previous national government triggered Article 155 of the Spanish Constitution to strip the north-eastern

region of its self-rule and financial control in response to the disputed independence referendum of 1st October. A message emblazoned across the three organisations' websites read: “Hello Spain. We see you’re still harming Catalunya. This is not a joke. We’ll damage your government, too. This is a form of protest. You won’t stop us!” Anonymous does not have any history of violence, only of cyber vandalism. Among its most significant protests involved blocking access to the Constitutional Court’s website, Tribunalconstitucional.es, back in October. The page showed an error message in English reading, This site can’t be reached, for several hours.

DANNY DEVITO TO GET LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD IN SPAIN

US comic actor Danny DeVito, the star of “Twins” and “Batman Returns”, will receive a lifetime achievement award at the San Sebastian film festival in Spain next month, organisers have recently annonced. The 73-year-old will also attend the festival to promote his latest film, “Smallfoot”, a 3D animated comedy adventure in which he provides the voice for a yeti. In a statement, San Sebastian festival organisers

said DeVito has “led a versatile career” in theatre, film and television spanning almost five decades, in which he was worked with top directors such as Tim Burton and Francis Ford Coppola. DeVito will receive the festival’s Donostia Award on 22nd September. The Donostia Award has been given out each year at the festival since 1986 to “a great film personality in recognition for their work and career.” Past recipients include Gregory Peck, Robert De Niro, Bette Davis, Susan Sarandon and Meryl Streep. The 66th edition of the San Sebastian festival, the oldest and most prestigious in the Spanishspeaking world, takes place from September 21 to 29 in the picturesque coastal city in northern Spain. DeVito, who won an Emmy for his turn as the despotic dispatcher in “Taxi” in the late 1970s and early 1980s, currently stars in the hit television comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”. His film credits include 1975’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” 1988’s “Twins”, “Batman Returns” in 1992 and “LA Confidential” in 1997.

Victims of Spanair crash remembered on 10th anniversary Relatives and friends of those killed in the Spanair crash at Madrid Barajas Terminal 2 marked the 10th anniversary of one of Spain's worst air disasters outside the monument set up for the victims in the Juan Carlos I Park in the capital. Flowers were placed against the memorial statue, music played and poems read out. Ministers who are now in charge of air travel-related issues – José Luis Ábalos, head of public works and infrastructure and Reyes Maroto, leader of industry, trade and tourism – attended the ceremomy along with head of the main opposition party, PP leader Pablo Casado. Flight JK5022 from Madrid to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria crashed moments after take-off on 20th August, 2008 when the engine caught fire for reasons that remain unclear. There were no survivors. Among the 154 dead were holidaymakers from the Madrid area off to the Canary Islands for a week or two on the beach, people from Gran Canaria

visiting or connecting via the capital on their way home, plus the pilot, co-pilot and entire cabin crew. Just months after the crash, Spanair – one of the most-used airlines in Spain went out of business completely. The Association of Spanair Victims say they do not have any faith in the investigation commission set up a decade ago to look into the causes of the tragedy, and suspect cover-ups as they continue to be blocked from seeing paperwork. Spain's new government, in power since early June this year, has pledged to keep the inquiry open and update the bereaved at every stage. A technical error in the TakeOff Warning System (TOWS) was not picked up when it was signed off as 'flight-worthy' in its recent inspection, since this was not an essential requirement for MD-82 models. It was an MD-82 craft which was involved in the Detroit air crash of 1987, also killing 154 people, and with another airline accident in Lanzarote in 2007. The TOWS

gives off warning signals to alert pilots of potentially hazardous errors in take-off configuration. Before take-off, pilots have a long checklist to ensure the multiple on-board systems are properly set up and in operation, but human error can result in these being missed or wrongly configured, even where the flight officer scrupulously follows the list. Now, all commercial airlines of more than 2.72 metric tonnes, or 6,000 lb, must have a TOWS installed which gives off loud alarms to the pilot during taxi and continue until the captain either aborts take-off or alters the configuration. It normally sounds like a loud car-horn together with a recorded message explaining the set-up error. If this was indeed the cause of the Spanair crash, in theory, the TOWS requirement means it should not happen again, although the risk is still there for aircraft lighter than 2.72 tonnes if the system is not in place, given that it is not compulsory.

Man shot in attack on police Abdelouahab Taib, 29, who was killed while wielding a knife, had confessed to his partner that he was gay, and said he feared the shame and dishonour of his orientation. The Catalan regional police, the Mossos d’Esquadra, maintained their initial theory that an attack by a 29-year-old Algerian man in a police station in Cornellà, Barcelona, last Monday morning was an act of terrorism. Abdelouahab Taib entered the precinct with a knife at 5.55am, and was reportedly shouting “Allah” as well as 0ther phrases in Arabic. He tried to attack a female police officer, according to the official version of events, prompting her to fire her service weapon at him, killing him in the process. The police are now investigating the personal situation of the man, whose wife had discovered that he was homosexual. According to police sources, Taib had no prior criminal record and was not on the radar of the authorities in terms of terrorism or radicalsation. Taib had spent “a number of years” in Spain, and more than two years in Cornellà, which is located in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. He had a Spanish Foreign Identity Number (NIE) thanks to his marriage to the Spanish woman, with whom he lived in an apartment just 150 meters from the police precinct. His wife, neighbours reported, had converted to Islam after meeting him and had begun to wear the traditional Islamic veil as well as long clothing to cover up her arms and legs. In its investigations, the Spanish

High Court is not ruling out a terrorist motive. But based on the information it has so far, they are giving priority to the theory that he acted due to “personal motivations channelled from a religious point of view,” according to sources from the public prosecutor. Before the attack, Taib left a message for his partner saying: “I’m going, inshallah, to the Great Place up there.” He also left behind two other pieces of paper with texts in Arabic. One had printed on it the phrase: “May God take you into his heart, my friend.” The second, which was handwritten, was a letter in which the author calls on God to forgive him. According to radio network Cadena SER, the seven lines – presumably written by Taib – use ceremonial phrases addressed to God in which he calls for help and for his blessing for what he is about to do. Investigators believe that this was a kind of prayer written by the man. None of the documents, sources say, make reference to jihad. According to sources from the public prosecutor, Taib attacked the officer “with the intention of killing or dying

while killing.” He was, the prosecutor claims, seeking a kind of religious salvation for what he considered to be the sin of being homosexual. Taib and his wife had reportedly been having problems since he confessed to her that he was gay, according to the statement she gave to the Mossos as a witness in the investigation. That prompted her to distance herself from him, and when she told him she was planning to leave him, Taib began to express “suicidal ideas,” according to her statement. Taib’s apparent main fear was that the Muslim community would discover his sexual orientation, which, he explained to his wife, would bring him shame and dishonour. According to the woman’s statement to the Mossos, she suspected that he had only married her in order to secure his residency papers. Religious commitment Taib had also begun to display behaviour recently suggesting a greater commitment to his religion. During their press conference on

Monday evening, the Mossos insisted that the motive for the attack was terrorism, but they did open the door to the possibility that other personal circumstances could have influenced the Algerian man’s behaviour. A search of the couple’s apartment yesterday did not turn up explosives or firearms. CCTV footage being examined by investigators shows Taib enter the precinct and launch himself on the female officer, who was sat in a chair. The knife he was carrying passed close by the body of the Mosso, who managed to get away from the man. She fired at least four shots at him, three of which hit his leg, arm and head. The attack came just three days after the first anniversary of the terrorist atrocities carried out in Catalonia in 2017, which saw 16 people killed in two separate incidents, the first in the central Las Ramblas boulevard in Barcelona and the second in the seaside town of Cambrils. The European Union’s law enforcement agency Europol had sent out an alert on 17th August that a message was circulating via messaging application Telegram with a picture of two Mossos officers and a hand with a knife superimposed over it, with a message in English reading “answer the call” – the phrase used by Islamic State to incite Muslims to carry out attacks. Counter-terrorism sources said that this detail backs the hypothesis that the Cornellà incident was terror related.

Blue whale caught on drone camera off Cíes Isles Drone footage off the coast of Galicia shows a blue whale – the largest mammal on earth - swimming close to the Cíes Isles. Captured the other week week but only recently aired, the video shows a whale of an estimated 26 metres (just over 85 feet) in length flipping her tail and exhaling water jets. The film is not very close-up, so it lacks detail to the naked eye, but the pilots from the Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI) in Galicia say it is the first time a drone has been used in Spain to snap these colossal animals on camera. Although blue whales in Spanish waters are less common, the world's second-largest mammal – the rorqual or fin whale – is becoming a more and more regular sight in the western Mediterranean. Between spring and early autumn, rorquals – often several at a time – can be seen relatively close to the shores off the San Antonio cape between Dénia and Jávea in the north of the province of Alicante. This area, which is mainland Spain's easternmost point, is on the direct migration route south from the Ligurian Sea and sightings of rorquals have become so frequent that marine biologists in the region have started referring to the San Antonio cape as the Autopista de las Ballenas – literally, the 'Whale-Way'.

Spain's first Down's Syndrome model at New York Fashion Week Spain’s first Down's Syndrome model has realised her lifelong dream of being chosen to take part in New York Fashion Week, due to start on 8th September.

Marián Ávila, 20, will be modelling the latest collection by designer Talisha White after wowing the industry with her savoir faire during a casting.

Marián's mentor, the young model Kenzie Dugmore – last year's Miss Citrus State Junior – worked hard on her protégée and it is largely thanks to Kenzie that the Spaniard will be on the catwalk in the Big Apple next month. Kenzie's 'Miss' crown meant she had to choose two causes for which to be an international ambassador – she opted for bullying and for Down's Syndrome, the latter of which led to her coming into contact with Marián. And the eyes of the world will be on Marián as she struts her stuff at one of the biggest and most prestigious catwalk shows on earth, in front of celebrities, industry professionals and editors of glossy magazines. Marián's first parade will be at 11.00 and the second at 20.00 local time in the élite Hotel Park Central 870.

Food intolerance Ever noticed that biting into a grilled cheese sandwich or spooning into Greek yogurt unleashes a slew of uncomfortable gastrointestinal side effects? You may be victim to a food sensitivity or intolerance. What is a Food Intolerance? A food intolerance is a digestive problem that results after eating a particular food or food group. A food intolerance is different than a food allergy in that it doesn’t produce an immune reaction to the specific food or food group. That means, your immune system isn’t triggered and therefore won’t produce a histamine response. For example, if someone has a peanut allergy and ingests a peanut-containing product, they may experience anaphylaxis and require immediate medical attention, whereas someone with a lactose intolerance who consumes a lactose-containing product may have a stomach ache as a result. Although less severe in response, food intolerances are not to be taken lightly. They frequently lead to a decreased quality of life due to pain, discomfort, and the avoidance of certain foods. While bloating and gas are two of the most common side effects, a food intolerance can trigger some bizarrely unconventional reactions. Fatigue Fatigue results from an inflammation and immune response. Your body has to work harder since the food is not completely digested so the food and has a more taxing effect on your body rather than the energizing effect you hope for after eating. This may result in fatigue and inflammation. Fatigue can also result from a food allergy because your immune system is expending a good amount of energy trying to remove the food protein ‘invader.' Bloating and cramping Enzymes are proteins that act on certain foods to help break them down. Some people lack the necessary enzymes to properly break down certain foods. This lack of food breakdown or digestion can lead to the feeling of bloating or stomach cramping. One of the most common intolerances that produce this symptom is a lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is caused by a deficiency in the enzyme lactase which breaks down the disaccharide or sugar in milk called lactose. Migraines Sulphites are preservatives that are commonly found in wine, dried fruit, some condiments, and other prepackaged foods. An individual who has a sulfite intolerance may experience headaches, migraines, and even asthma-like symptoms after consuming these products. There is no true test to diagnose this intolerance, however, keeping a food log and removing these foods from the diet could reveal an intolerance if symptoms resolve. Gas Gas and bloating are often caused by high FODMAP foods. People often don’t realize that avoiding FODMAPs longterm might control symptoms but it doesn’t address the reason they’re reacting poorly to highly fermentable foods. In my practice, I usually see this from bacterial overgrowth. The tolerance to high FODMAP foods improves when people treat the underlying cause.

Joint pain Joint pain is a result of inflammation which may be the result of a food allergy or intolerance. Any immune system reaction has the potential to trigger joint pain. Hives and rashes Food allergy symptoms often vary from food to food. Some foods such as nuts and fish are accompanied by anaphylactic reactions, which can be life-threatening if not treated with an EpiPen. Oftentimes an anaphylactic reaction will include symptoms such as an itchy throat, trouble breathing, and hives. However, many minor reactions are also accompanied by hives, normally in the facial region. This type of reaction normally indicates an intolerance to a food consumed in the past few minutes or within the hour. Hives on the tongue are normally indicative of a more severe reaction, but can also be triggered by a sensitivity to nightshade vegetables such as eggplant or red peppers. Diarrhoea and Constipation The most severe form of a gluten intolerance is celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks the villi of the small intestine in response to the presence of gluten (the protein found in wheat, rye, and barley). Essentially, gluten confuses the body to attack itself rather than the foreign substance. This disease presents widespread issues including but not limited to constipation, diarrhoea, malabsorption of key nutrients like vitamin D, iron, and B12, skin rashes, headaches and migraines, steatorrhea (oily stool), chronic fatigue, and chronic weight loss. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a less severe form of the gluten intolerance where the body doesn’t have an autoimmune response but still does not handle the ingestion of gluten well. Studies show that 50 percent of gluten sensitive individuals experience diarrhoea and 25 percent may experience constipation. Every case of these issues does not point to a gluten intolerance. However, if persistent, these

symptoms may be worth exploring. Arthritis Just as people who suffer from migraines usually have an immune component, an immune component can also trigger arthritis. Inflammation from gut hyper-permeability leads to higher levels of immune modulators that create inflammation. Heartburn & Acid Reflux Heartburn and acid reflux ensue when food is not fully digested or when

acid comes up through the esophagus and burns tissue in the esophagus and throat. When your body is sensitive to a food, it takes more energy to digest and could cause a hold up in the digestive system—though at that moment we can’t see what’s happening internally, we often feel it as heartburn or acid reflux. Runny Nose While it is less common with allergies or intolerances, a runny nose is often a sign that your body is trying to cleanse itself and when paired with other symptoms can sometimes signify you may have a food intolerance. Acne and Rosacea Although a food allergy differs from a food intolerance, people who are intolerant to certain foods should avoid the triggers. Skin issues like hives, rashes, itchiness, acne, eczema, rosacea, and puffiness can all be signs of a food allergy. A food allergy results when your body’s immune system overreacts to an allergen. When you consume a food that your body thinks is harmful (even though it is not), your immune system responds by creating disease-fighting antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE). Anytime that you eat a food containing that protein, your body is triggered to release IgE antibodies and other chemicals or ‘mediators,’ like histamine, in efforts of attacking and expelling the invading protein from your body. Histamine is a powerful chemical. The allergy symptom you experience depends on where in the body the histamine is released. If it is released in the skin, you are likely to experience one of the skin issues mentioned above. Causes There can be many causes of food intolerance, and we will take a look at each of these in turn. 1) Absence of an enzyme Enzymes are needed to digest foods fully. If some of these enzymes are missing, or insufficient, proper digestion may be undermined. People who are

lactose intolerant do not have enough lactase, an enzyme that breaks down milk sugar (lactose) into smaller molecules that the body can break down further and absorb through the intestine. If lactose remains in the digestive tract, it can cause spasm, stomach-ache, bloating, diarrhoea, and gas. People with an allergy to milk protein have similar symptoms to those with lactose intolerance; that is why lactose intolerant individuals are commonly misdiagnosed as allergic. Researchers

that fructose intolerance is common in children with recurrent or functional abdominal pain. Nearly all foods require an enzyme for proper digestion. According to the British Allergy Foundation, enzyme deficiencies are a common cause of food intolerance. 2) Chemical intolerance

causes

of

Certain chemicals in foods and drinks can cause intolerance, including amines in some cheeses, and caffeine in coffee, tea, and chocolates. Some people are more susceptible to these chemicals than others. 3) Food poisoning - toxins Some foods have naturally-occurring

Continued from page 49 chemicals that can have a toxic effect on humans, causing diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting. Undercooked beans have aflatoxins that can cause extremely unpleasant digestive problems. Fully cooked beans do not have the toxin. Hence, people may wonder why they react to beans after one meal, and not after another. 4) Natural occurrence of histamine in some foods Some foods, such as fish that has not been stored properly, can have an accumulation of histamine as they "rot." A number of people are particularly sensitive to this naturally-occurring histamine and develop skin rashes, abdominal cramps, diarrhoea, vomiting, and nausea. Often, the symptoms are similar to anaphylaxis (a strong allergic reaction). 5) Salicylates are present in many foods Salicylate intolerance, also known as salicylate sensitivity, occurs when somebody reacts to normal amounts of ingested salicylate. Salicylates are derivatives of salicylic acid, which occurs naturally in plants as a defense mechanism against harmful bacteria, fungi, insects, and diseases. The chemicals are found in many foods and most people can consume salicylatecontaining foods without any adverse effects. However, some

people suffer symptoms after eating large amounts. Salicylate intolerant individuals should avoid foods that contain high levels. Salicylates are present in most plant-sourced foods, including the majority of fruits and vegetables, spices, herbs, tea, and flavor additives. Mintflavouring, tomato sauce, berries, and citrus fruits have particularly high levels. Processed foods with flavour additives are usually high in salicylates as well. Diagnosis It is not easy to determine whether somebody has a food intolerance or allergy because the signs and symptoms often overlap. Certain patterns in the symptoms can help a doctor distinguish between the two. In the vast majority of cases, food intolerance symptoms take much longer to appear than food allergies. Patients are advised to keep a diary and write down which foods are eaten, what the symptoms were like, and when they appeared. The data in the diary can help a dietician or doctor identify which foods are causing adverse reactions, and what steps to take. Skin prick tests are not 100 percent reliable. Apart from lactose intolerance and celiac disease, there is no accurate, reliable, and validated test to identify food intolerance. The best diagnostic tool is an

exclusion diet, also known as an elimination or diagnostic diet. Intolerance to regularlyeaten foods may result in adverse reactions running into each other. When this occurs, it is difficult to identify which foods are to blame. There is a higher risk that a chronic condition or disease is erroneously diagnosed. Exclusion diets are extremely useful in isolating the culprit foods. In a typical exclusion diet, the suspected food is removed from the diet for a set period, usually between 2 weeks and 2 months. If during this period the adverse reactions resolve, it becomes more likely that the culprit has been found. This can be further confirmed if it is then reintroduced and symptoms return. The doctor may recommend a skin test and/or a blood test to rule out a food allergy. Improvement Some people find that if they stay off the specific food for a while, they have no reaction when eating it again - this is known as tolerance. Maintaining tolerance is often a question of knowing how long to abstain, and how much of it to eat when it is being reintroduced. As each person reacts differently, the only way to determine this is by trial-anderror.

Madrid to open first public retirement home for gay people A project to open an LGTB friendly retirement home has been given the green light by authorities in Madrid with plans to open it by the end of the year. A building in the Villaverde district in the south of Madrid has been earmarked to house the retirement home, which will be funded by public money from Madrid's regional government. The new centre will be home to 66 permanent residents and will have a day centre for a further 30 people. Federico Armenteros has been working for almost a decade to set up a specialised residence for elderly gay people through the December 26th Foundation - named after the date in 1979 when the law used during Gen Franco's dictatorship to imprison homosexuals - was repealed. Now in his 70s, Armenteros founded the project based on his own experience in a residential home for the

elderly, after he was ostracised by other residents for being gay. "They started to steer clear of me and insult me," he said in an interview in 2011 when he first launched his project. "They called me 'queer' and it made me feel awful. My room has two beds but no-one wants to share with me. So I'm alone and it's bad. "I have to make myself as invisible as possible - go back in the closet - so they don't notice me. And I spend as much time outside the home as possible." Eight years after he first began the campaign for a dedicated residential centre for gay people, the project is coming to fruition. “There are some people who are now 80-years-old and have never experienced the freedom of the LGTB movement because it didn’t exist until 2005, when same-sex marriage law saw homosexuality removed from the criminal code,” Armenteros told EFE

earlier this month. “Something had to be done so that these people could live out their last moments with as much dignity as possible,” he said. Data shows that there are an estimated 160,000 people over 65 who describe themselves as LGBT and want to live out their lives “in a place of respect”. Although the centre will be funded by the regional government of Madrid, it will be managed by the December 26th Foundation. He claims this will be the first publically funded geriatric centre for the LGBT community in the world. Spain has been a pioneer of gay rights, becoming one of the first European countries to grant equal marriage and adoption rights to same-sex couples in 2005. It consistently scores high on the Rainbow Europe report, for its protections for and rights granted to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT).

Birthday party for Terra Natura's favourite elephant Benidrom theme park Terra Natura's most iconic and popular resident celebrated her birthday recently. The event was held in true Bollywood style, as a nod to her Indian roots and all members of the public were invited to join her. Petita, who turned 46 last Saturday, is probably the Costa Blanca's best-loved elephant and has more Facebook friends than most humans. Born in Benidorm, Petita was rejected by the rest of the herd

for being 'ugly', because she was much smaller than newborn elephants usually are, and the isolation was leaving her feeling depressed. Luckily, Terra Natura paired her up with another female, Kaiso, with whom she became best friends and who helped her get in with the crowd. She discovered Facebook at the age of 35 and now has plenty of human friends, too. Petita's party was an explosion of

colour – literally – mirroring the Indian Holi Festival with Bombay-style film music playing, a show by the Alicante Omkara Dance School accompanied by the Merakimera percussion group, over 200 kilos of coloured powder and 5,000 bottles of coloured water. The birthday girl and her lifelong friend Kaiso were decorated by their carers with multiple colourful patterns which took days to complete, and a bindi was painted

on the foreheads of each human guest – the Hindu red dot signifying the 'inner eye' and 'wisdom'. An offering of fruit and vegetables was given to her rather than flowers – a gesture the Indians only make to the gods, and also to tourists whom they are taught are the closest thing to gods as they are so crucial to the country's wellbeing – since it was considered Petita would appreciate something she could

eat rather than look at. After the main party in the Pangea zone near the park entrance and a chorus of 'Happy Birthday to You', the crowds moved on to the Napastepur Village for a 'colour fight'. The evening continued with an Indianstyle musical parade, a colour foam party and an Indian Aqua Dance session in the water park wing of the complex, Aqua Natura.

Jason via email asks: I have recently acquired a fairly new laptop with Windows10 and before that I had Windows XP on an old Acer Tower PC. If I ever ran into a minor problem on my old Tower system I could easily restore my computer to a previous time before the problem occurred by using System Restore. I have experienced a number of problems with Windows 10 and my HP printer but I cannot for the life of me find the old fashion system restore program. Can I still do this in Windows10 and, if so, how? Aunty Says: Hi Jason. You can still use the old style System Restore but Microsoft have made it a little more difficult to find than it was in Windows XP. The easiest way to find it is to click the Windows/Start icon (looks like a flag) and type SYSTEM RESTORE which should bring up the System Restore control panel. You may first need to switch on System Restore by creating a restore point. Jim via email asks: Hi Aunty, somehow I have deleted all my WhatsApp history conversation with my wife! I have tried unsuccessfully to get them back but is this something you can help me with? I have an iPhone 7Plus. Aunty Says: Hello Jim. WhatsApp automatically does a backup at

around 3AM everyday which it may restore if you uninstall and reinstall the WhatsApp app, but you will only know by trying. If you want to keep a more controlled backup you can tell WhatsApp to backup to Google One Drive from the “settings” and “chats” menu via the three small dots top right.

Hello Elizabeth. I have always accessed the Google Translator via the official Google website www.translate.google.com which seems to work 100% of the time. Because you are using Google’s Chrome as your browser you can also easily add the translator extension as a permanent fixture (which you can get from the Chrome Web Store) which will allow you to easily and quickly translate a whole webpage using the right mouse button. Pam via email asks: Hello Aunty, I have a Windows 10 laptop and I am recently getting a message that my trial version of McAfee will expire soon. I don’t remember signing up for a trial but should I go ahead with this or just ignore it, what are my alternatives? Aunty Says: I wouldn’t bother Pam. The free trial from McAfee was probably preinstalled on your laptop or sneaked on when you did an Adobe Reader install. Windows 10 comes with Windows Defender built in, which coupled with the free Malwarebytes, should give you adequate protection. No amount of security programs will guarantee you 100% protection but as long as you use a bit of common sense and you’re careful as to what websites & links you are accessing you should be fine. Email me your questions to auntyvirus@costablancapeople.co m and I will see you all next week

Fuel price hike Price of Diesel is expected to rise in January with the introduction of a new tax and it is also believed that the price could go up quite a lot. Spain’s government has announced that a new tax on diesel, which aims to help tackle rising emission levels, is likely to be introduced in the New Year. The Minister for Industry, Trade and

Tourism, Reyes Maroto, said that the proposal will be included in the 2019 General State Budget, with the draft budget being announced at the end of next month. Maroto called the new measure a “good tax” as it will supposedly help combat climate change and said: “We have the important challenge of

fighting against climate change, which is, for us, very important and a national project.” The Minister for Energy, Alvaro Nadal, claims that the proposed 28.6 percent tax increase is justified given the rise in greenhouse gases. If the new law is passed, motorists will feel the substantial price increase in diesel from January 2019.

Buying and Selling a Car Using Headlights During Daylight

When you sell a car, you need to fill in a SALE CONTRACT, and make a photocopy of the buyer´s id. Make sure you include the date and the time when the vehicle was handed over. Inform the buyer that they have 15 days to go to the Traffic Office and change the Log Book into their name and send you a copy to verify this has happened. After 15 days, if this has not been done, YOU, the seller. Will have to go to the Traffic Office with: 1.Your ID 2. Photocopy of the buyer´s id. 3. Sales Contract (Signed by both buyer and seller) 4. Fill in the “Notification of Sale” Document. (You can download this from DGT website or get a copy on the information desk of the Traffic Office.) If for any reason you have forgotten to do these steps and you cannot contact the buyer, go to the Traffic Office and deregister your vehicle. In Spain, this is known as “Dar de Baja Temporal un Vehiculo”. From that moment you will not pay the annual tax, and when the vehicle is stopped by the police, and they check that the vehicle is deregistered, the vehicle will be clamped or towed away until the problem is solved. It is important to do proper research before buying a used car, like running a Vehicle History Report to discover any unknown issues. You can get the Vehicle Report from: 1.From the DGT website, www.dgt.es (click in Informe del Vehiculo and follow the instructions). 2. Directly from the Traffic Offices in Alicante or Elche.

3. There are several web pages where you can get the Vehicle Report quickly. http://www.e-informes.es/ Once you have bought a car, remember you have 15 days to transfer it into your name. We are going to explain step by step how to do it; – Write on the sale contract date/hour. From that moment you will be the provisional owner. – You will need to go to the Traffic Office with the following documents; 1- Sales Contract (signed by both parties) 2- Photocopy of the seller´s id. 3- The originals, not copies, of the logbook (Permiso de Circulación) and ITV. 4- Last year´s road tax certificate, known in some places as Suma. 5- Application to change the ownership which is the “Solicitud Cambio de Titularidad”. You can download it from DGT webpage or get one in the Traffic office. When you have all these documents, call the number 060, to make an appointment with the Traffic Office. Go to the TAX OFFICE (Hacienda) and pay the TAX “Transfer Tax” (Transmisiones Patrimoniales, model 620). You can download this model from the webpage of the Ministry of Treasury. (www.agenciatributaria.es) After paying the tax, go to the TRAFFIC OFFICE, where you will have to pay a FEE (depending of the vehicle you are going to buy; car, motorbike…) and give them the receipt you got when you pay the model 620 together with all 6 documents. In a few minutes you will have the vehicle transferred into your name.

These days we see a lot of cars travelling during the day with their lights on already, but these lights are usually very different to the ones referred to as “headlights”. Since 2011, all new cars and trucks sold in EU were required to have Daytime Running Lights (DRL) installed, which turn on automatically with the engine, in accordance with a new European directive designed to improve road safety. The rule also became mandatory for trucks and buses from August 2012. The DRL is a new method of illumination, with low energy consumption, but is not designed to provide additional lighting for the driver, but rather to improve “significantly” the vehicle’s visibility to other road users. Studies on the use of this lighting show, according to the EU executive, road users including pedestrians and cyclists, more clearly detect vehicles equipped with daytime running lights than those who do not have this device. However, Daytime Running Lights are very different to headlights. DRL illuminate the vehicle for other road users to see. Headlights illuminate the road ahead for the driver, for example. In fact, one thing that we must be conscious of, is that on many vehicles, Daytime Running Lights will only illuminate the front, not the rear, as those who need to see the vehicle need to see it approaching, not when it has gone. Vehicles have been observed frequently at night without lights at the rear and, when questioned, it has often been because the driver wasn´t aware of the difference or that DRL are only on the front, despite them not illuminating the

road ahead. There are certain times and locations when you must turn your headlights on during the day, these locations are indicated by a white pictogram of headlights on a blue circle sign. Article 104 of the Reglamento General Circulacion, refers to the use of headlights during the day, and explains how you do not have to turn on your lights when there are road repairs on the road, but details the situations when it is compulsory. All vehicles travelling on a reversible lane, sometimes called a bi-directional lane, which can at times be used by traffic in either direction. These sorts of lanes are common near to city centres, where the flow of traffic can alter to give more space for vehicles in one direction, such as towards the centre of the city at the start of a working day, and then away from the city at the end of the day. Although the accessibility of the lanes will be clearly marked, there is a risk to other road users and so increased illumination is of benefit.

At times, such as during the summer operations, additional lanes are created with cones on normal roads, to allow for a better flow of traffic in one direction. A circumstantial additional lane, as they are called, is when a lane is created with a series of cones to avoid an obstruction or to improve the traffic flow in one direction. They are also often used to bypass an obstruction that may pose a problem for the normal flow of traffic, such as a broken down truck that is disabled and cannot move. A lane normally used by traffic in the opposite direction, known as a contraflow. These lanes are frequently used on motorways when traffic is diverted onto a lane on the opposite carriageway for example. These situations all require headlights to be illuminated, not Daytime Running Lights. It is always worth getting to know your vehicle and how it operates in great detail, so that you know how to use the different illumination options when required.

Your Week in Sport by Chris Darwen ■ CHRIS DARWEN chris@costablancapeople.com

Even with free tickets being offered, only 500 fools (people) turned up to watch England put up a fight lasting 17 balls to delay the inevitable against India in the 3rd Test at Trent Bridge. Hang on, 17 balls isn’t much of a resistance effort, is it? That’s more like a “we all know what’s going to happen and what is on TV today” type attempt. The winning margin was 203 runs, a bizarre turnaround from the first two Tests where England deserved their W. Joe Root is probably right to urge people not to be too down in the dumps in the knowledge that England lost a match against a team currently ranked number one in the world but the

performance did absolutely stink of everything I mentioned last week. There is now talk that Jonny Bairstow, injured at Trent Bridge, might still play as a specialist bat at the Ageas Bowl such is the need to keep people who can actually bat in Test conditions in the squad. Better than that, there is talk of a longer-term plan to wrestle the gloves off Bairstow and tell him he is opening the batting. Not because Jonny is keen to open, you understand. Just because there’s nobody else in England capable and we are running out of people to try. Both Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings really should be jettisoned. Frankly, the fact Jennings was even recalled tells us how bad the problem is – Cook should be given a long break so he can sort himself out, refresh and come and have an incredible autumn to his already legendary career. And if we can find someone to share the burden

with him at the top of the order, we might see Chef return to what he can be, easily the best opening bat in the world on form. Suddenly, England and selection looks like a total mess. Moeen Ali went back to Worcester and scored a double ton and took some wickets though we are more interested in his runs right now. If he comes in, it’s for Ollie Pope or Adil Rashid and dropping either would be odd – Pope needs time to learn the ropes and it is not his fault he has struggled so far considering he is batting two spots higher than he has ever done in first-class cricket and he may as well be batting at three the speed of which he has to get his pads on and get to the crease. And why have all the hoo-ha of calling up Rashid if you are not going to back him for at least the whole summer? Personally, and I said this last week, I feel the biggest

mistake England have made in the entire summer selection wise is dropping Curran and bringing back Stokes. The whole thing is feeling like a mess of their own making, especially as Moeen Ali does need to be back in the side – it’s just that Ed Smith didn’t really need to go around creating a load of rods for people’s backs. James Vince is also back in the squad as cover for Jonny Bairstow, so what does that even mean? A couple of months away from the squad means that Vince has stopped wafting airily outside off-stump? I doubt that very much indeed. We brought back Gary Ballance and that failed. We’ve brought back Keaton Jennings and that has failed. Don’t try it with Vince as well, stick with Pope and give him a home and away series before casting judgement. That said, if Vince did get a game then

Root can bat at four which is where he wants to be and we could move Pope down a place as well and he might feel more comfortable. As I said, it’s a total mess. It’s no wonder Virat Kohli et al have their eyes on being the first team since a Don Bradman Australia XI donkeys ago to come back from 2-0 in an away series and win it. My team for the Ageas Bowl: Cook and Jennings (because there’s nobody else yet and I don’t know enough about Rory Burns at Surrey to suggest he is the next in the queue to get a go); Root, Pope, Bairstow, Ali, Buttler, Woakes, Curran, Broad, Anderson – it’s important to point out I probably would not have brought Rashid back in the first place. If Bairstow is out, I’d keep Stokes and bump Moeen up to five. Yeah, I really would.

New chief executive for CD Torrevieja After a complete restructure of its management and organisation system, CD Torrevieja can now announce that Daniel Plaza Montero will join the club as its new chief executive. The Catalan athlete, who made Torrevieja his home many years ago, began his extensive sporting career by becoming the Spanish champion in every walking category that he entered. He participated in four World Championships, three European Championships and in three editions of

the Olympic Games, excelling in his chosen discipline and becoming a role model for his country after achieving numerous medals during his career. It was precisely in Barcelona in 1992 that he achieved the highest accolade possible; Olympic Champion in the 20km walk. Dani Plaza thus became the first ever Spaniard to win a gold medal at the Olympic Games in this discipline and in athletics. Dani Plaza was elected Councillor for

Sport and Education by the former government of Torrevieja. During his time in office, he worked hard in creating the city’s municipal sports centre and making it what it is today. Partly thanks to him, Torrevieja now has seven tennis courts, six padel courts, a new municipal gym, three football pitches with artificial grass and a semi-Olympic outdoor swimming pool. Not only this, but he also introduced the grants that are awarded to various sports clubs and elite athletes within the

municipality. But his merits don’t end there, as he also founded the city’s Municipal Sports Council. Without a doubt, CD Torrevieja has bagged a spectacular sporting manager, which is evident from his experience, commitment, values and passion for sport.

San Miguel Golf Society The Plaza Golf Society Getting up at 6am to play a round of golf is a sign of commitment or desperation to escape one’s partner for most of the day. The 8.30 shotgun start at Lo Romero began in glorious sunshine and a strong, swirling breeze. Those starting on picturesque hole 18, its green completely surrounded by water, were aided by a tailwind that should have resulted in them attacking the most difficult hole on the course. Sadly, cowardice trumped courage in most cases. As always, Lo Romero was in excellent overall condition bar the odd woolly green; little wonder the course is one of the most popular on the society’s circuit. It’s a shortish course with only one of the par 5’s needing three big blows. However, water hazards and a generous sprinkling of greenside bunkers can make high scoring difficult. Fortunately, many tees were in forward positions thereby reducing the

need to use long irons to reach the putting surface. Scoring was generally on the low side with only three players breaking par, captain Tony Smale’s tremendous 42 points being the pick of the bunch. After winning in similar style last week with 41 points, members are hoping that successive swingeing cuts of his handicap will bring him down to size. The results, by category and in reverse order, were the following: Bronze Category: 4th Chris Hamblett (33), 3rd Willie Fenn (34), 2nd Brian Butler (34 on CB) and 1st Kyree Skarsmoen (36) Silver Category: 4th Paddy Diskin (35), 3rd Gerald Bannon (35 on CB), 2nd Brian Mulligan (36), and 1st Hugh Reilly (39) Gold Category: 4th John Humphreys (34), 3rd John Osborne (35), 2nd Theo Boelhouwer (38), and 1st Tony Smale (42)

Nearest the pins on the par 3’s went to Gerald Harwood, Phil de Lacey and Paul Griffin, the winners handed prizes by the sponsor, Mick Roscoe, of The Property Shop. Best guest prize went to Richard Lewis. Bob Eyland won this week’s Abacus prize, a bespoke bottle of wine sponsored by Gordon Wilson. In the lone match play game, Barry Roehrig lost out to Brian Mulligan 2 and 1. Our thanks to the staff at Lo Romero for their contribution to the day. Keep up to date with all SMGS matters by logging on to our website www.smgs.org or simply give Tony Smale a call on 628227687 to find out more about the society and its weekly golf get-togethers. Next week we will be at Las Colinas.

The Plaza Golf Society returned to our spiritual home Villamartin Golf Club. Spiritual being an apt word today as we also said goodbye to a very close friend to many of us. Bruce Webster sadly lost his long and painful battle with cancer. RIP old friend we miss you already. On to more cheery news! We had 50 players today with some really good scores, some average and then there was Janice Holtham with her measly 15pts, strangely she did not make it back to The Ale House to pick up her wine so ‘Fat Cat McAllen’ has added this to his extensive collection. NTPS again sponsored by The Ale House and were won by Kev ‘9 Fingers’ Bird x2, Keith Crowley, Mark Parry and Kev Adamson. The ‘former radio 1 DJ’ Gary Davies was the best guest with 37 pts off his 6 handicap, the interestingly named Bob McKeegan Brown! was 2nd with

35 pts and young Toby Davies 3rd with 33 pts. Debbie Rose was once again the best Lady and the 2’s pot of €100 was shared by 9 Fingers himself, Keith Crowley and the vertically challenged pairing Mark Parry and smiling Neil O’Cheeseman. So into the main events.. Gary Gates came 3rd in Silver with 32 pts, Barry “the mouth” Mitchell was second with 35 pts and Neil O’Cheeseman fell on one with 38

pts! There was a now familiar name once again appearing in the Gold division ‘Dodgy’ Declan Crowley came 3rd on countback with 39pts off his 9 hcap, Andy “pass me the fake tan “ Shaw was 2nd, and the overall winner was the affable ‘oirishman’ Graham McClarke with 41 wonderful points off his 4 hcap! There’s gonna be some serious snipping of handicaps going on today!

La Finca Golf Society Mondays roll up this week was won by Derek Braid with 37 points. Nearest the pins were Stuart Tosh (3) and (13). On Wednesday we played a 3 man team game as we had to play the front 9 twice due to course maintenance, the winning team of Derek Braid, Brian Bevan and Eric Owens won with 98 points. Nearest the pins were Mike Stott (3) & Eric Owens (6). Twenty members and guests travelled to Hacienda Riquelme for our Summer Cup comp as La Finca had just under gone

maintenance work on the greens. Some members found the greens to be slow with the Floridian type paspalum grass and lots of bunkers on a typical Nicklaus designed course. This week was a Stableford competition of the Yellow Blocks.

SACKED IN THE MORNING Folks, I think I have sussed it. The question that has been puzzling us for a while now. I have the answer and it is so very simple. It really is. You’ll laugh when you hear it. You really will. Am I stringing this out a bit? Maybe. I know how we can stop Manchester City winning the league this season. Make them play Benfica Wolves FC every week. Sorted. Next? Oh, you want more detail? OK – last season, Wolves were the only team to stop Peppy G’s galloping gallopers scoring within 90 minutes. Actually, they kept them out for 120 minutes in the League Cup. And, on Saturday, they became the first team this season to take points off the Champions. So, working on a theory that could have been devised by the local U9 football team, I reckon that the best way to stop City is to pitch them up against Nuno Espirito Santos’ lot every weekend. I do have a few observations from the match as well, believe it or not. Firstly, £50m might get you a left-back that everyone was very, very excited about last week but it does not get you a leftback that knows how to take legal throw-ins. How many times did Benjamin Mendy screw that up? I counted at least three. Mind you, that’s not as bad as in Spain. I reckon it’s a 100% foul throw ratio on Spanish shores. We need to talk about Rui Patricio as well. I am not a fan of him wearing the number 11 shirt in goal, it’s plain wrong. Conversely, I am a fan of the save he made from Raheem Sterling, tipping the ball on to the bar in style. That was the best save of the season so far, by a mile. Wolves’ goal clearly was a case of Bol to hand was Willy Boly missed his header and bundled the ball in with his arm. But, of course, we have the best referees in the world in the Premier League and as a result we not need VAR to help in these situations. The fact that Boly was actually offside when he punched it in doesn’t really need highlighting either. In a curious parallel universe where the Premier League does have VAR, that Wolves goal was chalked off and City went up the other end and won a penalty. They scored it, of course, and my whole theory gets blown out of the

water. Fortunately for me, that did not happen and City had to dig deep to get an equaliser from Laporte, a goal where ironically Boly missed his header again. Martin Atkinson really did have a terrible game and whilst we giggle at how bad La Liga might be with VAR this season it really is time for the Premier League to remove its head from its bottom and accept that referees do need help. Liverpool welcomed Brighton knowing a win would send their fans into the unrealistic stratosphere, a place that Liverpool fans rarely need to receive a second invite. Mohamed Salah scored and Liverpool won. That tricky second season syndrome is really getting to Mo, isn’t it? Alisson got some pelters for “showboating” but if you go and pay £70m+ for a goalkeeper because he is good with his feet, what do you expect? Liverpool sit top with three clean sheets so even if Alisson is dinking the ball over an opponent before laying it off with the calm of Messi on a really calm day, what he is doing behind the defence appears to be working too. Before heading off to play Newcastle United, Chelsea made it very, very clear that the club is NOT for sale and that Roman Abramovich was NOT thinking of cutting his ties with the UK. On the other side of the fence, Newcastle United fans were still dreaming of Mike Ashley finding a buyer for the club and there was even talk of them giving up their new “50% off at the House of Fraser” membership cards if it sped up the process. On the pitch, you didn’t need to be a tactical genius to suss what Newcastle’s tactics were. Put the entire matchday squad in the penalty area and defend, defend, defend against a Chelsea team who actually managed 136% of possession. That tells you how negative Newcastle were. Ye, can we just sound that VAR klaxon once again? How on earth could that have been given a penalty? You have to feel for a defender who has spent all day doing exactly what Rafa Benitez had instructed (and done it very well) to have that given against you. It wasn’t much of a game to watch if you like that free-flowing champagne stuff but for me, I like

El Plantio Due to the closure of El Plantio's 18 hole course, the 9 hole Society opted to travel all the way to Benidorm to re-visit the par 63 Poniente course, which is linked to the Melia Aitana 5 star hotel. 14 members and two guests attempted the tricky course, which consists of 9 par 4 holes and 9 par three. Some found it too demanding whilst others found it very enjoyable, as the scores testify, but

An open match was fished on the 21st August on the Embalsa de Pedrera. They are pumping quite a lot of water into the lake at present, and it seems to be holding its level also it was very calm with no wind. We fished on the match point and the fishing was patchy, but Dave Hutchinson managed to take the top spot with 13.460kgs, in second place was Bill Reade with 12.580kgs and coming in third was Richard Wood with 7.560kgs, all three top weights came off the points 1st Dave Hutchinson with 13.460kgs fishing the pole using paste 2nd Bill Reade with 12.580kgs fishing the feeder using pellet 3rd Richard wood with 7.560kgs fishing the feeder using pellet

seeing a backs-to-the-wall, thou-shaltnot-pass type displays and I felt Newcastle were hard done by. Oh, Hazard recovered from about 50 whacks to his shins to get up and slot the penalty away. Now, you’d expect Chelsea to see that one out wouldn’t you? Aha, not this time. Newcastle chose to depart their penalty area following going behind and Joselu equalised with a lovely little finish, right after Olivier Giroud took one to the chops. Would VAR have sorted that one out as well? You betcha. It would have made sense for Newcastle to batten down the hatches having nicked the leveller but no, Andre De Yedlin (he who smacked big Oli in the smacker) toepoked one into his own net as King Karma started celebrating wildly in the stands. Arsenal met West Ham on Saturday in a game that meant one of the teams was likely to end the weekend bottom of the table and utterly pointless – utterly pointless being a label often used to describe both Arsenal and West Ham. Everything seemed to be going rosily for the Hammers when Arnie put them 1-0 up from the spot but, be honest now, is there a West Ham fan out there that didn’t expect them to selfcombust in the second-half? From leading, they simply froze leading to an instant equaliser. The second half gave us a horrible debut own-goal from Issy Diop and then a clincher from Danny Welbeck. Yes, you know it’s a bad day out when Welbz comes off the bench to tidy things up because you rarely throw on Danny when you are chasing a game – he’s there when things are already done. Unai Emery felt compelled to tell the world that Mesut Ozil had not walked out of training following some comments in the press from his new manager earlier in the week and that he didn’t play because of ‘illness’. Wow, if we are suggesting that Ozil doesn’t play for Arsenal when he is ill then he must be suffering from something terminal judging the last few seasons. The fact is, Ozil does not fit what Emery wants from a footballer (things like effort, work-rate, tactical discipline etc) which makes the decision to grant him a new £350k-aweek contract a bit daft.

RODS & REELS An Open match was held on the El Bosquet Complex which was run by Neil McBirnie on the 22nd August. Work was being carried out on pegs 25 to 40, to widen the canal, which should be a vast improvement. I was not fishing this week, so details of the match are a bit sparse, but the winner once again was Neil McBirnie with 38.880kgs in second place was Richard Smith with 30kgs, and in the third spot was Tony Mac with 13.270kgs 1st Neil McBirnie with 38.880kgs fishing the pole using pellet 2nd Richard Smith with 30kgs fishing the pole using pellet 3rd Tony Macmillan with 13.270kgs fishing the feeder using corn There are still some vacancies at the Club and if anyone is interested in joining please contact Richard Wood on 611451423 Tight Lines Terry Screen

Quesada Bowls Club On 19th August Quesada players welcomed a Ladies touring team from Loanheads Miners Welfare in Scotland. Although Quesada won on all 4 rinks, the Scottish ladies gave a good account of themselves.

The Scottish ladies also participated in the Saturday chicken run with Quesada players where one of the Loanhead ladies was the joint winner. Quesada will next host a touring team from the Royal British Legion and also shortly begin a series of friendly matches against El Rancho Bowling Club.
