The New Corprorate Tax Regime In a recent edition of Direct Mag I set out some general thoughts about Gibraltar’s finance centre when I highlighted the fact that Gibraltar is recognised as being a very well regulated jurisdiction. A further highly advantageous characteristic She benefits from modern legislation of the jurisdiction is the fact that Gibraltar combined with state of the art, high tech has been part of the European Union since infrastructure and a fine international 1973. Therefore the EU Parent Subsidiary reputation. Worldwide awareness has Directive (among others) applies. Generally, been enhanced partly as a result of the dividends paid to a Gibraltar parent company development of the world class e-Gaming industry in recent years. In this further piece, from an EU based subsidiary are exempt from withholding tax. Coupled with other I highlight some of the practical benefits available to those considering the jurisdiction advantages, Gibraltar can be an extremely efficient option for holding companies with for their personal or business affairs. subsidiaries operating in the EU. As always professional advice should be sought in My first focus is on the new corporate tax advance on these issues. regime. Announced in 2009 the legislation came into force on 1 January 2011. A new, flat corporation tax rate of 10% was A new, flat corporation introduced and at the same time, the tax exempt company regime finally came tax rate of 10% was to an end. A key point relating to the introduced and at the taxation of Gibraltar companies is that all same time, the tax exempt companies pay tax at the rate of 10% but only on income accruing in or derived from company regime finally activities in Gibraltar. Therefore, the new tax came to an end. regime gives rise to real opportunities for businesses wishing to establish locally 7


But Gibraltar’s strength does not rely solely on its attractive corporate tax regime. Equally advantageous opportunities exist for individuals too. As just one example, Gibraltar is open for QROPS pension business which allows for the transfer of UK pensions overseas for expatriates. QROPS stands for Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme and the jurisdiction has recently been given the green light by HMRC to continue handling such pension transfers. A recent change to Gibraltar’s income tax law means that payments under such a transferred pension will be taxed at 2.5% making it most favourable. A commencement lump sum payment may also be allowed from the age of 55. Gibraltar boasts a number of firmsthat have the experience and expertise to manage QROPS and the jurisdiction is seeking to grow this business. Huge benefits can apply to High Net Worth Individuals with net assets of at least £2m

further example, its place as a leading centre for maritime services. Same day yacht registration is possible and the vessel does not have to be based in Gibraltar. Furthermore as Gibraltar is not part of the EU Customs Union, VAT does not apply. Vessels can be purchased and sold free of VAT although professional advice should be taken if the yacht is to sail in EU waters. In future editions of Direct Mag I will go into more detail on the ways in which both individuals and their businesses can benefit in practical ways when using Gibraltar as a base. Whether as a financial centre or centre of expertise for the maritime services industry, the Rock has a great deal to offer.

Express Shops Now 4 shops for your convenience with a little pirate fun thrown in! 'Catalan Bay Cove' quaint and picturesque... but watch out for Blackbeard and his dastardly pirates they're all around!!! That's the theme for the latest in the 'Express Convenience Store' chain... There are some, who, with all best intentions, predict certain projects they plan to undertake and then, for a variety of reasons those ideas don't materialise... Not so, Stephen Vinales who told us many months ago that he wanted to open a chain of Express stores around the Rock. Well soon, stores 5, 6, and 7 will open but we'll deal with those on another day. His latest is the Riviera Express convenience store and Express cafeteria (Stephano's) at the sparkling new Riviera Land development situated at Catalan Bay village's southernmost corner opposite La Mamela rock. This


one is a true gem. It's a themed store and cafeteria built to a very high standard in furniture, ďŹ ttings and decor. It's certainly one for the kids and in fact, all the family. There are pirate bursts and swashbuckling ďŹ gures - giant size - there are cannons, sails, portholes - the lot! The 'Express' follows the trend of the other three stores, in that items on offer cater for every food, snack, drinks and Carte D'or ice cream need or craving! Once again every single item is perfectly and neatly displayed as you would ďŹ nd in a professional and true convenience store and arrives as an added convenience store for Catalan Bay residents too, but this time - not surprisingly it's situated near the beach - the accent is on Stefano's your Express Cafeteria, aiming at the appetites of sandwich, montadito, Spanish deli and canapes, and cakes and pastries


seekers and especially those of families and children. 'That's right," declares busy proprieter Stephen - who quickly informs me that the pirate theme decor was the brainchild of his wife Rose who was busy (within earshot) organising stuff! "But yes, we have loads of space inside and out. There are 30 tables seating four at each and we would really also like to attract townsfolk, especially the kids who I'm sure would really appreciate the 'Pirate' theme. We're aware of the three or four restaurants in the area but we're offering something different, lighter and really appetising". Stephen tells me, son Zydon is still his right hand man and the crew at the Riviera Express are a great bunch.

The Riviera is indeed spacious. There's a ground floor, first floor and terrace... "Perfect for children's parties," Stephen confirms, "Our next project, The Europa Point Express, opening soon, will also be a cafeteria and an excellent venue for other functions too." Meanwhile, Bucaneers and modern day pirates will no doubt be drawn to the ambient music of the Riviera Express and tasty, delightful morsels being served at Stefano's... Open till Midnight, seven days a week and DON'T FORGET your Jolly Rodger tee shirt!!



Preparing Your Application by

How to improve your performance from CV to Acceptance At Smart Recruitment we are of course on hand to help you through every stage of the application process, from help with CV preparation to interview tips and etiquette. We believe personal contact is the perfect way to guide you through these issues, however, we appreciate that we give you a lot of information, and so for your reference we have compiled the following guidance notes which we hope you will find useful.

Preparing your Curriculum Vitae (CV) Your CV must provide a concise and accurate summary of your qualifications, skills and employment experience. A badly prepared CV will • challenge the credibility of its contents and could jeopardise your chances of getting selected for an interview.Your CV should be no more than three pages long, think quality, not quantity.

• • • • • • • •


Bullet points help to break up the CV. Employers are able to get straight to the salient points and bullet points will help direct them there. Break duties / tasks down into specifics. Communicate your strengths, your initiative, your personality and your achievements. List any courses attended that are relevant to the position you are applying for. List other skills that could raise you above the competition such as languages, driving licence, IT skills. List your most recent employer first putting the greatest emphasis on your most recent employment position. Summarise older positions. Each position should include, your employers company name, your title and dates of employment. Ensure that there are no gaps in dates on your CV; if you took a year out of employment to travel, say so. Tailor your CV to each position you are applying for. Remember to include all your contact

details and home address on your CV Do not be tempted to embellish your CV as employers have ways of checking details. Falsifying information may not only disqualify your application, if you are offered the position it could lead to grounds for subsequent dismissal. Finally, check and double check your CV thoroughly for correct spelling and grammar. Spotting errors is a quick and easy way for a potential employer to weed out weaker candidates when reviewing CVs.

Covering Letter When applying for any position, employers will expect you to include a cover letter with your CV. An effective and professional covering letter should draw together all the facts in your CV, and register your enthusiasm and interest in the specific vacancy. • • • • •

Your letter must be well presented, brief and concise. Introduce yourself, confirm your contact details and availability for interview. Remember to highlight your relevant qualifications. If your handwriting is poor it is best to type your covering letter. Finally, check and double check your letter thoroughly for correct spelling and grammar.







Buying and selling a property in Spain The following information is suggested as practical advice which you may wish to take into account when contemplating purchasing property in Spain. While the FCO hopes that this information is of benefit to our customers, please be aware that it is not intended to be the only guidance purchasers follow when considering making a purchase. In addition, the FCO makes no representation as to the quality or accuracy of the information which is available at the web addresses listed below, nor can the FCO accepts any responsibility for the content that is hosted on them. The FCO’s strong recommendation is that prospective purchasers of Spanish property seek independent legal and financial advice at all stages of their purchase when transacting in Spain. If you are considering buying a property in Spain you should read the step-by-step guide on how to buy a home in Spain published by The Association of Property and Mercantile Registrars of Spain. You may also find it useful to look at the Residentes Europeos site by the Diputación de Alicante. This site has information in English on:


the rights and duties of buyers

information you should obtain prior to making a purchase

what you must do before signing the contract

when and how you should pay for the property

useful contact details

Research •

It is important to thoroughly research the area you are considering purchasing in, as well as companies you might use (developers, estate agents and lawyers). You should look at a range of properties with different agents to compare prices and ensure that you do not end up paying over the odds

Exercise extreme caution if an estate agent, promoter or lawyer urges you to cut corners to save money/time. The Spanish property conveyancing system is different to the UK and you should ensure that those involved in the transaction are qualified professionals, who have an expert knowledge of how

the system works. If you choose to work with a British estate agent, promoter or lawyer, check that they are qualified, reliable and have experience operating in Spain •

It is also worth looking at online forums dedicated to Spanish property such as the Spanish Property Insight forum and the Eye on Spain forum to learn from others experiences and ask questions.

Seek independent legal advice •

Appoint a lawyer who is experienced in property conveyancing and fully independent of anyone else involved in the transaction e.g. the estate agent, vendor and developer. Â Numerous property owners are now experiencing problems with their property because they did not seek independent legal advice and instead used lawyers and translators which were recommended by the estate agent/developer and in some cases were acting for both parties

If your lawyer is based in Spain, check that he/she is registered and practicing with the local Colegio


de Abogados (Bar association) by asking for their registration number and verifying this with the Colegio de Abogados. You can find a full list of all the Colegios de Abogados across Spain on the Consejo General de la Abogacia Espanola website If you appoint a UK firm, check that they are registered with the Law Society in the UK and specialise in International Transactions. Check that your lawyer has professional indemnity insurance Do not sign any papers or hand over any money until you have taken independent legal advice. Although the British Embassy cannot recommend a lawyer, we do have lists of local Englishspeaking lawyers and qualified translators available on our website. See your local consulate pages for details.

Use an independent translator If you do not have a good understanding of Spanish, make sure that you get all contracts and relevant documentation translated by an independent translator. You can find a list of accredited translators and interpreters in Spain on the Spanish Ministry for Foreign Affairs website. information provided by



Fifty Shades of White Its that time of year again, Jane and Meme from Denville Designs have just come back from an amazing and interesting design week in London, to bring back to Gibraltar the latest trends and fashion for your homes for this season. They found that most of the designers are still using the natural colour pallets with DuluxPaint launching their 50 shades of white collection! Helping Interior designers to make this an easy route to follow, so interesting to use many shades of white in a room. Textures are still very a popular choice to use in every room of the house especially when only using white, mixing in big bold colours on a cushion or with a piece of wallart, with natural colours still dominating the world of interiors we have also found that animal prints and metallic leather affects are coming back snake skin and leopard prints but in shades of grey and black. Osborne and Little have an amazing range of these in fabrics and wallpapers; by using these you can add texture to the room . Meme mentioned that the show was dominated by lighting from led wallpaper to sculpture lamps Designers are still staying green. A lot of natural lighting is also used in projects this is a reflection of the recession to cut down on electricity bills and to make are homes greener. This is the advantage of working with a good team of interior designers and architects to help achieve a stylish,


comfortable but practical design for the home. Talking about saving money it was nice to see that once again buying really good quality pieces of furniture will save you money and stress in the long run. Despite lean times, it was a pleasant surprise to see a huge array of energetic designs at the show This season it’s all about interior design that promotes the Earth and ecology. Natural fabrics which give your room a warm and comfort are ideal for this. Think mixed wood tones, terracotta, cotton and wool. Not only are they right on trend, they’re warm and comfy too. Changing what you have on your walls is the easiest way to move with the trends. Framed architectural prints have been a big hit this year; whereas fabric art creates a feeling of warmth and is can be used to give a room a quick update. Retro chic still remains top of the trend list when it comes to accessories, with the 50s and 40s still having a huge impact on fashion. When choosing your accessories, it’s important not to go overboard but keep it simple. For more ideas and the latest in interior fashion, come and see us at Denville Designs

Winter Gardening Advice During winter, there are some handy tips and tricks for healthy winter gardens. Now that the cooler weather of winter is here, gardens don't loose as much water to evaporation as they do in summer. Because of this, soils can easily waterlog if over watered, particularly on the southern side of homes and in well shaded areas. If you have an automatic watering system, during these cooler months reduce the watering time to at least half that of summer. When watering, do so in the morning so that both soil & plants can dry off before night time. This will reduce fungal disease. If possible, water directly onto soil & not onto plant foliage. Fungal diseases love wet conditions and if the plant leaves are wet during the night, this creates ideal conditions for fungal diseases to proliferate, so this is very important for healthy plant growth.


It is commonly thought that plants don't need fertilising in winter, but this is not true. Plants will flourish with the right winter fertilising. What is more important is the type of fertilisers used. High nitrogen fertilisers are more suited for spring through to autumn, but not really for winter. However, fertilisers containing high amounts of Potash (Potassium) are excellent for developing deep green leaves and promoting plant strength and vigour through winter.

Venues, accommodation and transport

Catering, florists and decoration

Entertainment, lighting and logistics

Full planning, management and coordination

However, what makes WCS Bespoke different is that they can also provide comprehensive destination management services, meaning that they can take care of and arrange all of the pre and post wedding requirements of not only the bride and groom, but also the family and guests too. This is where having an established and well respected high-end property management, concierge, rentals and maid service business as part of their service portfolio comes into play. Within this business, WCS Bespoke can book flights, arrange accommodation, transport, logistics, keep the guests entertained with excursions, parties, events, pampering, yacht charters, sports and recreation, catering etc.  The list is pretty endless. 


Honeymoon arrangements for the bride and groom can also be arranged at one of their luxury villas, where absolutely every detail for the couple will be taken care of, for example: •

On site chef/catering staff there 24 hours a day or for part of the day to take care of your every need

Headed up by Clare Westwood, the team at WCS Bespoke has years of experience of delivering a Northern European standard within a Southern European environment and are fully aware of the importance of smoothing over any complications that this brings, especially when working with high-end clients.  Clare believes "It sometimes doesn´t matter how we do it, we just have to fix things and make problems disappear! We focus on understanding the individual needs and requirements of all of our couples, clients and guests. I believe that this attention to detail is pivotal to what we do. I get to know my clients and listen to what matters to them and pick up on those tiny details, naturally

ensuring that these are incorporated into everything that we deliver, without being asked. Some clients like to hand off pretty much all of the responsibility and decision making to us and just want to be involved in final approval. However, others like to have a much more hands on approach and want to be much more involved.  We are comfortable and used to working in both environments and everything in between."   This, combined with their outstanding organisational skills, their passion and drive for excellence at every stage and within their philosophy of honesty, transparency, discretion and accessibility, is what makes WCS Bespoke stand out as the ultimate and most comprehensive wedding service provider.   WCS Bespoke operates from their offices in Torreguadiaro, just 1 km from Puerto Sotogrande.

Emerging Wedding Trends for 2013

Choosing locally grown flowers, recycled invitations, and repurposing old items to become centre pieces has become a popular style. Brides are not only saving money, but the environment as well. Guests are wowed by the bride’s crafty creativity rather than lavish spending, and the environment doesn’t pay the price. Not all brides are capable of a totally green wedding, but many are including small touches like donations to environmental charities in their guest’s names as their wedding favours or registering for ecofriendly honeymoons. Something old is taking over in 2013. With celebrities embracing old-Hollywood style, comes brides embracing vintage everything. Brides are bringing back just about everything from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s except the puffy sleeved wedding gown. Thrift stores and antique stores are the shops of choice for the 2013 bride. Seating displays, table settings and decorations are all taking on an aged feel. Achieve this feeling by including a family tradition started by your great grandmother or putting old wedding photos from both of your families on the tables.

In the past, weddings were over the top and flashy. More and more couples are opting to be married But the 2013 wedding trends seem to be shifting in a location other than a church. Outdoor toward more socially responsible, understated weddings and weddings in interesting locations weddings. have become a popular way to make your The wedding business has seen a rush of new wedding stand out. If you are traditional and ideas in the past few years, everything from would like to use a church, try having your brightly coloured gowns to highly choreographed reception in a creative space like a museum or first dances. Trending for weddings in 2013 is an park. Often these types of spaces provide their idea that has been lingering around for a couple of own decoration and ambiance, and the cost of years, but now, coming full circle is the Victorian decorating is minimal. themed wedding.  Perhaps it's because there has been a surge in retro style in recent years, making everything old, new again, that we have started delving even further back in our history. Or perhaps the lack of grace in society today has turned people's attention back to a kinder and gentler time period, when beauty, style and good manners reigned and weddings were huge social occasions.  Brides are now swapping 1000 guests to 100 of their closest friends and family and they are spending less money on more eco-friendly things. Times are changing, and here’s how you can keep up. Many brides are giving up traditional wedding planning and opting for a green wedding.

Winter Skin Care

Does even the mere thought of winter make your skin feel tight and itchy? Learning how your skin reacts to the winter chill and adjusting your skin care will help you keep Jack Frost from nipping at your nose -- and the rest of your skin, too. Winter weather affects your skin in several ways. Dry skin is the most common result of seasonal weathering. Cold winter air lacks humidity and dries up natural oils in your skin, causing it to lose its moisture. Bitter winter winds also cause chapping and windburn. This leads to rough, cracked skin that can feel tight and uncomfortable. The obvious solution might seem to be to getting in out of the cold, but during the winter months, indoor heating systems dry inside air, too. Instead of finding relief indoors, you're likely to suffer an extra dose of the drying effect. All hope is not lost, however. You can take steps to protect your skin by making careful choices about your soap and your laundry products, keeping your skin covered up when outside, and increasing the moisture inside your home. While planning your winter skin care regimen, you should be sure to consider any existing skin conditions. Winter weather not only irritates healthy skin but also can make current skin problems worse. If you have a skin condition such as dandruff, psoriasis or eczema, be aware that winter weather might cause those conditions to flare up. If you're not sure how best to protect your skin this winter or if your skin looks infected, you should consult your doctor.

Daily Winter Skin Care Although you can't control the weather, you can certainly take steps to keep it from ruining your day. Once you've checked the local weather report, it's time to check your cupboards and closets for the right materials. If your skin feels itchy and dry during the winter, then check your soap. For washing your body, try switching to a soap formulated for sensitive skin. To wash your clothes, try using an allergen-free or hypoallergenic laundry detergent made without perfumes or dyes. You might also want to avoid using fabric softener sheets as some brands can leave small, itchy fibers on your clothes. You know it's important to wear warm clothes and shoes during cold weather. However, you might not realize that how you layer your clothing can also affect your skin's health. Avoid wearing itchy fabrics like wool next to your skin. Try to wear softer, less abrasive fabrics, like cotton, closest to your body in order to let your skin breathe. Also, keep in mind that if your clothes become wet, you should change into dry clothes as soon as possible -- wet clothes can irritate your skin.

Avoid winter weight gain Winter weight gain isn’t just an urban myth. Research has shown that most of us could gain around a pound (half a kilo) during the winter months. That may not sound like much, but over the course of a decade, it can add up. "What used to be a couple of days of parties and There’s good evidence that people put on weight over the winter," says dietitian Sian Porter. "The over-eating now seems, for some, to be six weeks more overweight you are, the more you tend to put of over-doing it," says Porter. on. And the most worrying aspect of this seasonal weight gain is that the pounds tend to stay on. So what’s the solution? Here are four simple ways People don’t seem to lose the extra weight." to avoid winter weight gain. The three main reasons that people put on weight in the winter are lack of physical activity comfort eating and over-indulging at Christmas. Cold weather and shorter days make it harder to exercise outdoors, so it’s easy not to do any exercise over winter. If you’re not outside as much, there’s more time and temptation to reach into the kitchen cupboard for high-calorie sweet snacks, such as biscuits and cakes. Then of course there are the festivities that surround Christmas.


1. Stock up your kitchen cupboards Keep your store cupboard stocked with staples such as cans of tomatoes, spices, beans and pulses, dried wholewheat pasta, wholewheat cereals, noodles, couscous and dried fruit. Keep some extra bread in the freezer if there’s space. That way, you’ll be able to create a quick and nutritious evening meal, such as a lentil or vegetable soup or stew, at short notice. You’ll save money and avoid the temptation to order a highcalorie takeaway.


2. Exercise more When the outside temperature drops, it’s easy to give up on outdoor exercise. In winter, we stop doing calorie-burning outdoor activities like short walks and gardening. But reducing the amount of physical activity you do is one of the biggest contributors to winter weight gain. Cold weather and shorter days don't mean you have to abandon exercise completely. Instead, rearrange your schedule to fit in what you can. You don’t need formal exercise to burn calories. A brisk walk can be revitalising after being indoors with the central heating on, and it’ll also help boost your circulation. Put on some warm clothes and jog around the neighbourhood or start a snowball fight with the kids. Most leisure centres have heated swimming pools and indoor tennis and badminton courts. If you’d rather stay at home, buy some dance or workout DVDs, and always walk up the stairs at work rather than using the lift. "These little things can make all the difference when it comes to avoiding that pound of weight gain over winter," says Porter.

3. Drink smart It’s important to consume hot drinks throughout winter as it will help you keep warm. However, some hot beverages are high in calories. Milky, syrupy coffee shop drinks and hot chocolate with whipped cream can add a lot of calories to your diet. A Starbucks medium caffe mocha, for instance, contains more than 360 calories. Stick to regular coffee or tea, or ask for your drink to be "skinny" (made with skimmed milk). Also, limit your alcohol intake as much as possible. 4. Get your winter greens Eating a wide variety of foods ensures you get a range of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals. Don’t get stuck eating the same food every day. Look out for root vegetables, such as swedes, parsnips and turnips, and winter veggies such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale and artichokes. They’re filling as well as nutritious so will help you to resist a second helping of trifle.

The Black Science Resent changes in EC laws have removed most of the mystery behind tire section. Tires are now marked with date of manufacture, load and speed ratings. The most resent directive, tire sold in Europe can’t be manufactured from recycled oils, which mainly effecting USA 4x4 marks, where some brands used old cooking fat. These tires will not be “E” kite marked, so will not pass an ITV. We at Don Neumaticos say tires are like petrol, buying SHELL 95 unleaded or BP 95 it’s the same stuff, so tires of the same specification from the major brands are interchangeable to be the same stuff. To simplify you tire chose the EU have just introduced a chart similar the domestic appliances showing by way of a bar chart, dry condition efficiency, wet grip and noise levels. So you the client not only rely on your tire company to fit the right tire for your make and model of car but to make sure the tires are fitted the right side out, direction of rotation, be it asymmetrical. Things get a bit more technical when you go behind the numerical reference for example A 195/65 R 15 “85” T is not the same as a “87”., Tires are made from different type of rubber

(Oils). Falling in to two groups “carbon black” and “silica” carbon black is in the main used for saloon cars, Silica offering better grip in the wet, is mainly used in performance cars tires. A word of caution fitting Silica tires to a car designed to run on Carbon black may disrupt the traction control system when most needed. Mainly American cars or like the DB9 were Bridgestone developed a specific tire, with the DB9 level of performance, the car is not as happy when running on another make of tire. A resent example of another garage fitting the wrong tires, a transmission prop shaft over heated at a cost of 4,300 Euros. So all we ask is that you allow us the quote for your tire requirement. Knowing the price will be right. With a service second to none, if your tires are not in stock by having 93 different makes with over 3,000,000 tires on a 24 hour delivery. We will win your custom. Your satisfaction is our grantee, as we work on the strategy that your car has 4 tires, by your recommendation, we win your partner’s 4, your friends 8 etc, that is why we have been on the cost for 10 years. Knowing as a client of DON Neumaticos you are driving safe with confidence and above all with peace of mind.

Then they announced a new iMac that is 5mm thin, absolutely amazing. That’s not it, there’s a new iMac mini and a new Macbook 13.3” with Retina screen. Now that’s a lot to choose from.



Apple stole the thunder from Microsoft’s launch by making their announcement 3 days before Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 8. What is Windows 8? Win8 is a big leap forward for Microsoft; it is a fast and fluid operating system that is at its best on touch screen technology like tablets and touch screen computers and laptops. Microsoft have built a whole new operating system designed around the new way we interact with our devices, touch. There is a whole new Windows marketplace being built to compete with the App Store and Google’s Android Play.

You can customise the photo and the login sequence so it can be whatever you want. Gone are the days of remembering all those passwords.


Do you have a tablet at home, hate that you have to share it with your husband/wife and kids? Well with Win8 you each have your own login to the device and when you login you get only your apps on your screen. There are 100s of fantastic features Win8 brings.

TECHNOLOGY Gibraltar’s Social Network

Launched in November 2010, GibBook is a social network site created for the use of people in Gibraltar. By joining GibBook and it’s over 2,200 members so far, you can share pictures, videos, play games online, chat with friend's for free and a lot more! GibBook has become very popular amongst the local community with members creating events, posting comments, classified ads, etc. Although its main focus is Gibraltar, it does not restrict membership to geographical or birthright grounds, and anyone interested in Gibraltarian life can sign-up. Gibbook is pretty much focused on anything and everything Gibraltarian, from members to advertisement, from weather to diary, from news to discussions which colloquially flow in a saucy mixture of English and Spanish. One innovative facility Gibbook offers is the video and audio chat similar to Skype connection for the chat room, which means users can actually make themselves seen and heard laughing out loud, instead of just typing LOL!

GibBook allows companies to advertise their products or service to the local community at an extremely competitive price, giving your brand 24/7 exposure amongst thousands of potential customers. Advertising on GibBook can range from placing a banner on the site to interacting via GibBook and its fan pages with users.

For more information on advertising on GibBook please visit: www. Alternatively you can contact Alfred Ballester on 56000343 to discuss a tailor made marketing campaign. Sign-up to now and be part of Gibraltar’s social network!

The devil’s advocate might argue that Gibbook is redundant, considering the success that Facebook is having locally, with groups about Gibraltar popping out every day. Yet, GibBook believes it isn’t: statistics prove that whoever is hooked to the fad tends to have accounts with more than one social network, and post their comments, videos and photos on one or the other depending on the friends they have in them. Furthermore, because everyone knows everyone in Gibraltar, the forum is guaranteed to be kept urbane, free of the cyber-bullying some people experience on worldwide sites, since it virtually polices itself, and anyone can report abuse and possibly be personally acquainted with the abuser.






Never has an epoch been so recorded in such detail since the introduction of the cheap digital camera. If 6000 years from now we have not destroyed ourselves in an exchange of nuclear weapons historians would have no problems trying to piece together how we lived from the billions of photographs that are uploaded to the internet every year. It has been estimated that by mid 2011 there were 100 billion photographs uploaded to Facebook alone and if the trend continues in a 1000 years the numbers would be unthinkable.

Imagine a world without photography There was a time when this was very much the case. No photos of your children or your pets no instagramme no duck face profile picture nothing and no movies. Now fast forward to 1900, there were cameras about sure, but mainly in the hands of highly trained people who could get the best out of them. At this point cameras where still bulky and it was only until Kodak announced the Box Brownie the first box roll film camera that photography started to be introduced to the average person on the street for the princely sum of $1. Low cost photography for everyone was not a dream anymore but a fact, with its simple controls all you had to do was press the button and send the film away to a photographic lab and hey presto, family portrait. Fast forward One Hundred and twelve years forget the introduction of colour film or the arrival of the 35mm SLR camera or the advent of Polaroid or the hundreds of innovations made in the search for better ways of capturing an image.


But what kind of a distorted view would these historians of the future have of life in the 21st century, what would they think of our clothing our profile photos the orange people of Jersey Shore? Whether a photograph in the future tells a story or not it would at the very least show how we look and dressed but it will have people scratching their heads when they see a couple of million photographs of people planking, they might think it some kind of whacky religion. What is certain though is that digital cameras are here to stay; the only thing is what guise will they take? Already anybody that has a mobile phone has a digital camera inbuilt and these are getting better with every upgrade. Will the future give us cameras that can be surgically implanted into our retinas? Well when they can do that, I can assure you I will be having one implanted.


Your Gibraltar TV Well, some of you may remember an article in the Direct Mag about this time last year, talking about this great new project for Gibraltar, Your Gibraltar TV! An online website that concentrates on what's going on in and around Gibraltar, and only in Gibraltar. The HyperLocal media (as it officially known) is a great space, where due to technical advances, it is easy to create great content at a fraction of the cost that TV used to cost.  So here we are, a year later and we're still enjoying what we do. The site now average over 35,000 visits per month and bearing in mind the Gibraltar population is only estimated at 29,000 I think we are doing pretty well. The range of programmes has increased from just the simple written and video news, to feature Business Matters programmes presente by Ian LeBreton and YGTV Presents specials.  The response within the community has been amazing and we really must thank everyone, here in Gibraltar and abroad that use the service to

keep up to date with all the latest news and events here in Gibraltar. We love providing and awe are glad to se so many of you enjoy using it. You can always see what's going on by simply going online at or alternatively, follow us on or - whichever way you prefer, you'll keep up to date with all the latest that's going on in Gibraltar.  From all of us here, thanks again for supporting us and we hope to see you all soon!

Gaelic Football Gaelic Football is a form of football played mainly in Ireland where, although a strictly amateur pursuit, it is the most popular sport in terms of both playing numbers and attendance levels. Played correctly, it is a fast, hard game requiring a combination of skills incorporating kicking, catching, running, tackling and hand-passing. Teams of 11 or 15 players attack H-shaped goal posts, with one point awarded for kicking or punching the ball between the posts and over the crossbar and a goal worth three points awarded for getting the ball under the bar and into the net. Gibraltars very own gaelic football team "The Gibraltar Gaels" recorded their second straight victory of the season with a hard earned victory over reigning Iberian champions - Seville. The match was fiercely competitive with both sides leaving nothing on the field, and both battling hard until the final whistle. Gibraltar's superior fitness won through in the end and the victory now leaves them top of the Andalucian league. It's an impressive milestone for the

team considering the club is in its infancy, only formed 12 months ago. The club now faces Marbella in the final game before the christmas break, victory would solidify their place as league leaders. The club trains every Wednesday at 8.30 on the municipal pitches in La Linea. Wether you're completely new to the game or a seasoned pro, all are welcome, all nationalities, we cater for everyone, get involved!!!

Lew “ The MCA is world renowned for high standards and their certificates are accepted in all International Maritime Organisation (IMO) white list countries around the world, that’s about 123 countries so it gives good scope for those looking to work on a variety of flagged yachts” Lew continues to explain that having a SSO onboard is not just limited to vessels crossing global hotspots for piracy. Many superyacht owners like e to have a security qualified person onboard for their own piece of mind and these individuals sometimes need to be cross trained for other departments. Achieving STCW95 Basic Safety Training is a strict requirement for anybody who has a safety critical role onboard but also having other skills like Powerboat level

200+ Years Later, and the HMS Pickle is set to Return

The date is October the 21st1805, Admiral Horatio Nelson is kneeling upon the deck of the HMS Victory. The British are victorious once again, but Admiral Nelson has been struck by a bullet, in his spine. Three hours later the last words to escape from his lips are ‘God and my Country’… Following his death and Britain’s victory in the Battle of Trafalgar the HMS Pickle was instructed to make the journey from Gibraltar, back to the Motherland, with the bittersweet news. The famous topsail schooner sank drastically in the bay around Cadiz, Spain on 26th July 1807.

Two hundred and five years later, Gibraltar is set to see the haunting return of the vessel. An exact replica of the 73-foot twin masted HMS Pickle was commissioned to return to Gibraltar’s ever popular Ocean Village earlier this year. The Tourist Board was approached by operator of the ship, Robin James, who pledged to make the Pickle a permanent feature in Gibraltar.


Considering the germane antiquity shared between Gibraltar and the HMS Pickle, Minister for Tourism, Neil Costa explained that Government is thrilled with the initiative. He also noted that the Tourist Board would be assisting in the marketing of the tourism product in order to encourage as many visitors to the site, as possible.

On its journey to Gibraltar, in September, the ship was struck with its second bout of bad luck, after fighting against storms in the Irish sea and sustaining sail damage, a fishing net got sucked into the water intake, causing the engine to over heat and fail. Following this incident, the ship remained in Northern Spain awaiting repairs. It was expected to arrive in Gibraltar in time for Trafalgar day on October 21st, however following an extensive six weeks of repairs, Robin James managed to obtain a new engine from Gloucester. The mammoth task of installing the new piece saw extensive delays, but alas, the Vessel will definitely arrive in Gibraltar very soon, to a magnanimous welcome from the public. Text provided by

During WWII an attack on Gibraltar was imminent. The answer was to construct a massive network of tunnels in order to build a fortress inside a fortress.

The Apes

The Great Siege Tunnels are an impressive defence system devised by man. Excavated during the Great Siege of 1779-83, these tunnels were hewn into the rock with the aid of the simplest of tools and gunpowder.

sendero: La Calzada Dehesa Boyal La Calzada is a walk, which brings you

to a path, known by the people of Castellar de la Frontera to be an original roman path. Along this path, flanked with rockroses, you reach a turret whose function was to keep watch from this strategic point. Further on you come to the castle, which was built in the 13thC and has a great Moorish influence on the exterior development. It is an outstanding fortification and is still inhabited to this day.

From the road CA-5131, about 350m you will come to Venta La Jarandilla. This is 5km from Castellar de la Frontera (Pueblo Nuevo). Part of a roadway on this walk is still paved.

Length: 3.100m Difficulty: Medium Estimated Time: 2 Hours


La Calzada es un sendero que nos acerca a

un camino que se cree es de origen romano, y así es conocido por los habitantes de Castellar de la Frontera. Flanqueados por jaras, llegamos a un torreón cuya mision era la de vigilancia de este punto estratégico y, más adelante, a un castillo cuya construcción data del siglo X, tiene gran influencia musulmana y un desarrollo posterior. Resulta notable el que sea una fortificación habitada hasta nuestros días. Desde la carretera CA-5131, parte una calzada empedrada que es la que recorre este sendero. Se localiza a 350 metros de la Venta Las Jarandillas, a 5km de Castellar de la Frontera (Pueblo Nuevo).

Madventurers Charity in Ghana In January 2011 Cathy Lopez embarked on a 7 week building project in Ho, Ghana with the charity Madventurer, there, she and other fellow volunteers (or Madventurers as they are referred to) helped build a sanitary block for the local kindergarten in the village of SokodeGbogame in the Volta region. Little did she know that 18months on she would be recruiting fellow MAD volunteers to join her on another expedition in West Africa. This up and coming project, led by Cathy herself, will takeplace over 4 weeks in July 2013. The intense 4 week build will consist of renovating the current village Post Office into a cocoa factory. The Post Office will have to be completelyrepaired, re-plastered, re-roofed, painted, decorated and equipped, ready to become a fully functional cocoa factory which will allow the community to sustain themselves for generations to come.By enabling sustainable projects and facilities, the MAD (Make a Difference) Foundation supports communities in creating better opportunities and scope for further development. Moreover, Madventure always work in close partnerships with the village chiefs, development committees, local governments and NGOsto create income generation and capacity buildingprojects that can aid the economic development of local communities.Shia’s livelihood derives from the cocoa fields that surround it, so this project really is vital in order to help the community sustain themselves long after the Madventurer’s have left.

The response so far has been overwhelming and a number of MAD Gibraltarians have already signed up to take the leap, head to Ghana and Make a Difference in summer 2013. There are high hopes for Gibraltar’s first ever MAD Tribe and we hope to gain more support as we go on.

The founder and chief of Madventurer, John Lawler (or Chief TorgbuiMottey I – his official title as the Chief of Development due to his extraordinary efforts to help build and improve education in the Volta region) will be in Gibraltar to do a presentation regarding this project, on Saturday 24th November.
