EDITORIAL Bienvenidos lectores a la edición de este mes del periódico The Resident, que por cierto es nuestro cuarto aniversario. Como habréis comprobado durante estos años, no somos los que tocamos triunfalmente “la trompeta” y haciendo exageraciones sobre el periódico, preferimos mantenernos al margen y hacer nuestro trabajo lo mejor posible, y dejar a la publicación hablar por sí misma. ¡Pero sólo esta vez nos daremos unas palmaditas en la espalda y nos felicitaremos por el trabajo bien hecho! Bueno, hemos sobrevivido otro verano más. Soy consciente que no debería estar tan contento de que la mayoría de los turistas hayan regresado a casa, después de todo, la mayoría de nosotros dependemos directamente o indirectamente de estos visitantes por sus inversiones y debido a los tiempos que corren los necesitamos más que nunca, pero terminado el mes de Agosto y empezando Septiembre se siente esa tranquilidad de que todo vuelve a su sitio, y no tienes que esperar por una mesa en tu bar o restaurante preferido, y sobre todo porque podemos encontrar aparcamiento con facilidad. Los padres nos relajamos también ya que nuestros hijos han vuelto al colegio. He prometido a mis hijos no estar tan contento por la vuelta a sus estudios, pero si me veis por la calle en un par de semanas con satisfacción en mi cara, sabréis el porqué. De momento estamos en un periodo de transición entre el verano y el resto del año. Mientras los turistas veraniegos nos abandonan, el invierno empieza y muchas actividades de otoño e invierno estarán a punto de empezar. Asegúrese de visitar nuestra página www.theresident.es para consultar eventos y actividades. A nivel personal, los lectores de la revista Andalucía Life pueden que hayan visto que recientemente su editor Nick me ha mencionado como que yo también soy aficionado a la agricultura, ya que tengo arrendado un pequeño huerto, igual que él. Vale, levanto mis manos y lo admito. Mi nombre es Gary Beaumont y dedico mi tiempo libre a la agricultura, ahí está, ¡Mi secreto ha sido revelado! Ahora, si alguien quiere mis berenjenas, tengo cientos de ellas….. Saludos. Ed

Welcome readers to this month’s issue of The Resident, which is our fourth birthday issue. As you will have gathered over the years we are not ones to blow our own trumpet, and make exaggerated claims about the paper, preferring to “quietly get on with the job” and let the publication speak for itself. But just this once we will give ourselves a hearty slap on the back for a job well done! Well we’ve survived another summer. I know I shouldn’t feel so happy that the majority of the tourist hordes have returned home, after all most of us rely either directly or indirectly on these visitors for their economic input and in these current difficult times we need them more than ever, but come the end of August, beginning of September there is a sense of relief when things have returned to normal and you don’t have to fight for a table at your favourite bar or restaurant, and parking spaces become available once more. Parents too will be heaving a sigh of relief now that the children are back to school. I have promised my kids that I won’t take such delight in their return to their studies, but if you see me in the street over the next couple of weeks with a kind of smug look of content on my face you’ll know why At the moment, we are in something of a transition period between the summer season and the rest of the year. Whilst the summer visitors have left us the winter shift are just beginning to return and many of the autumn and winter activities are yet to start. Make sure you check out The Resident website at www.theresident.es for events and activities as they are announced. On a personal level readers of the Andalucia Life magazine might have seen that I was recently ‘outed’ by the editor Nick as a fellow allotment holder. OK I’ll hold my hands up and admit it - ‘my name is Gary Beaumont, and I’m a gardener’ there it is, out in the open now - my secret revealed. Now if anyone wants any aubergines I’ve got hundreds of the bloody things... Best regards Ed.

A total of 72 bars and restaurants are participating in this month’s III Gastronomic Marathon, following the culinary route known locally as the “Gastronomic Valley” covering Guadiaro, Pueblo Nuevo, San Enrique, Sotogrande, Torreguadiaro, San Roque Club and Alcaidesa, and which will be celebrated from the 15 to 30 September. San Roque’s mayor, Fernando Palma, explained how the marathon works “to participate people should pick up one of the leaflets that can be found at various places and when frequenting one of the participating establishments the consumer should ask for the leaflet to be stamped. Participants need only collect stamps from any two bars or restaurants to be eligible for entry in the draw”. The distribution of bars and restaurants taking part is: 15 in Pueblo Nuevo, 13 in Guadiaro, 7 in Sotogrande, 12 in Sotogrande Port, Alcaidesa Golf Club, 15 in Torreguadiaro, 5 in San Enrique and 4 at San Roque Club.

El Pleno de la Corporación decide las fiestas Urbanart - un programa de formación juvenil a través del graffiti y el muralism locales de 2011 La corporación Municipal, en una sesión extraordinaria y urgente celebrada recientemente, ha decidido por unanimidad las fiestas locales a disfrutar en 2011. En concreto, se trata de los días 27 de mayo y 12 de agosto. El segundo punto del Orden del Día , la moción de Concejala Delegada de Fiestas y Juventud sobre Fiestas Laborales para el año 2.011 se aprobó por unanimidad. Se explicó que la fiesta del aniversario

de la ciudad se trasladaba del 21 al 27 de mayo, ya que el sábado 21 era jornada de reflexión previa a las elecciones municipales, por lo que la realización de cualquier acto institucional podría ser ilegal. Igualmente, y dado que el lunes de resaca de la Feria cae en 15 de agosto, fiesta nacional, la fiesta local se traslada al viernes 12.

San Roque sets next year’s local holidays In a recent council session San Roque’s governing body set the local holidays for the municipality for the year 2011. The second point on the order of the day dealt with a motion by the Councillor for Fiestas and Youth regarding these holidays and was approved by unanimous decision. Specifically the local holiday celebrating the anniversary of the founding of San

Roque will be moved from the 21 to 27 Mayo. The reason for the change is that the 21 is the ‘Day of Reflection’ prior to the local elections and any official acts on that day are prohibited by law. Equally the local holiday which traditionally follows the Summer Fair falls on the 15 August which is a national holiday and therefore has been moved to Friday 12 August.

El Ayuntamiento de San Roque y la empresa Cepsa colaboran para poner en marcha Urbanart San Roque, una iniciativa que busca fomentar los valores cívicos entre los jóvenes y potenciar su creatividad a través del muralismo y el graffiti. Se trata de una serie de talleres y charlas que tendrán como colofón la realización de murales en diversos espacios sanroqueños, destacando el muro de la Refinería. Estos trabajos competirán en un certamen y se mostrarán en la feria Creativa Cádiz. Urbanart consistirá en una serie de talleres para jóvenes, técnicos municipales y responsables de asociaciones juveniles, a los que se impartirá formación relacionado con el muralismo y el graffiti, con el resultado final de actuaciones de muralismo en el entorno urbano y peri-urbano de San Roque. Todo ello desembocará en el Primer Certamen de Expresión Joven

Urbanart San Roque, cuyos bocetos se mostrarán en el área de Artes Plásticas de la Feria Provincial de la Creatividad, “Creativa Cádiz”. Durante su desarrollo se impartirán conferencias en los diez colegios y los cinco institutos de San Roque, que versarán sobre el uso del espacio público, la cultura urbana, el muralismo en general y el graffiti. Se informará también sobre lo que se está haciendo en otras ciudades y países para prevenir el vandalismo y ordenar el uso del espacio público. Tras esta formación, los jóvenes actuarán en distintos muros del municipio, utilizando distintas técnicas plásticas. El muro del recinto de la Refinería, de 2,5 kilómetros de largo, será el espacio que centrará el mayor número de actividades. Para realizar estos trabajos se utilizarán 1.200 botes de spray y 600 kilos de pintura acrílica exterior.

Urbanart - a programme of youth development through the medium of graffiti San Roque Town Hall in collaboration with Cepsa have initiated a new youth programme entitled Urbanart which seeks to develop civic values and creativity through graffiti and mural painting. A series of workshops will culminate with the execution of murals in various places in San Roque, including the Cepsa refinery’s 2.5 km of walls, which will compete for a prize the arts fair “Creative Cadiz”. The workshops and lectures will be delivered at primary and secondary schools

throughout the municipality, and will focus on the responsible use of public space, urban culture, murals and graffiti. The students will learn about methods used in other towns and countries to combat vandalism. Following this instruction the students will create artistic pieces on various walls in the town using different techniques and materials. It is anticipated that some 1200 aerosol paint cans, and 600 kilos of acrylic paint will be used in the project.

El Ayuntamiento habilitará aparcamientos donde se ubicaba la Cruz Roja en el Castillo Las delegaciones de Medio Ambiente e Infraestructura y Obras han proyectado para la zona de El Castillo de la Duquesa un nuevo lugar de estacionamientos de vehículos. En concreto, se trata del lugar donde se ubicaba el servicio de la Cruz Roja, junto a la N-340, que como se sabe, había dejado de prestar sus servicios desde hace algún tiempo. Por ello, los concejales Salvador Zotano y Mario Jiménez han apostado por acondicionar esa parcela de carácter municipal y realizar un aparcamiento. Esto supondrá ofrecer un servicio a la

ciudadanía que se necesitará cuando comiencen las obras en el paseo marítimo del Castillo. Los trabajos, que comenzaron hace una semana y finalizarán a principio de septiembre, están consistiendo en quitar la caseta, colocar un firme adecuado y delimitar el terreno para aparcamiento. También supondrá para la vía de servicio un desahogo y amplitud. El coste de estas actuaciones no supondrá un desembolso notable para las arcas municipales, ya que la están realizando operarios municipales.

Comienzan los trabajos de reconstrucción de la zona de Monte Viñas Después de duros meses de negociación, reuniones y solicitudes, por fin la zona de Monte Viñas en Manilva ya puede ver cómo han comenzado los trabajos de reconstrucción de las viviendas y los viales que a consecuencia del temporal que azotó el municipio se vieron muy dañadas. Se trata, en primer lugar, de desescombrarlo todo para que los trabajos puedan iniciarse sin desperdicios o material inutilizable. Esta tarea supondrá unos diez días de trabajo. A partir de aquí comenzará el proceso de licitación pública para adjudicarlo a la empresa con mayores garantías y cuya oferta sea la más provechosa para todas

las partes. Una vez realizados estos trámites burocráticos, y que los técnicos han establecido que finalicen para el mes de noviembre, comenzarán las labores de pilotajes y reconstrucción de todo lo afectado. Salvador Zotano, concejal de Urbanismo, ha manifestado que gracias a las gestiones realizadas por el Ayuntamiento de Manilva, y la insistencia de la delegada provincial del Gobierno Andaluz, María Gámez, quien llegó a presenciar el desastre que había provocado el temporal, el Consorcio de Seguros pagará el 100% de las obras, que asciende a más de un millón de euros.

La Alhambra, denominada así por sus muros de color rojizo («qa’lat al-Hamra’», Castillo Rojo), está situada en lo alto de la colina de al-Sabika, en la margen izquierda del río Darro, al este de la ciudad, frente a los barrios del Albaicín y de la Alcazaba. Su posición estratégica, desde la que se domina toda la ciudad y la vega granadina, hace pensar que existían construcciones anteriores a la llegada de los musulmanes. Su conjunto, completamente amurallado, posee una forma irregular limitado al norte por el valle del Darro, al sur por el de la al-Sabika, y al este por la Cuesta del Rey Chico, que a su vez la separan del Albaicín y del Generalife, situado en el

Consumo informa de la obligatoriedad de tener las hojas de quejas y reclamaciones actual Según informa la Delegación de Consumo dirigida por Gabriel Recio, son muchas las hojas de quejas y reclamaciones recibidas en la oficina del consumidor del modelo antiguo. Estas hojas de reclamaciones ya no están en vigor y por tanto no tienen validez. Desde el DECRETO 72/2008, de 4 de Marzo, que regula las hojas de quejas y reclamaciones en Andalucía , por el cual hay que actualizar los libros de reclamaciones. Con la entrada en vigor del mismo es obligatorio que todos los establecimientos

disponga de la misma, porque el hecho de no tenerla es sancionable. La multa por no tener el libro de reclamaciones a disposición del consumidor puede alcanzar los 6000 euros. Para agilizar la adaptación de las empresas a esta normativa,l a Delegacion de Consumo recuerda que desde el pasado mes de Enero de 2010 pueden recoger estos libros en la Delegación de Consumo, situada en plaza Ginebra numero 2, en Sabinillas. Evitando de esta manera el desplazamiento a Málaga, práctica habitual en años anteriores.

Consumer office reports businesses still using outdated complaints book Gabriel Recio, Councillor for Manilva’s Consumer Department, has advised that many complaints forms received by his office recently have been of the old model, and are therefore invalid. Since Decree 72/2008, of March 4, which dealt with the introduction of the new style ‘hojas de quejas y reclamaciones’

complaints book, it should be pointed out that all establishments are obliged to be in possession of the new books, failure to do so may incur a fine of up to 6000 euros. The books can be obtained from the Consumer Office (Delegación de Consumo) situated in Plaza de Ginebra, Sabinillas.

Mitochondrial Awareness Week El 19 de septiembre marca el inicio de una semana para despertar consciencia de las enfermedades mitocondriales. Enfermedad mitocondrial es un término general que se utiliza para una rama de las enfermedades metabólicas, con base en la disfunción de las mitocondrias. Se estima que 1 de cada 4000 sufren de algún tipo de enfermedad mitocondrial pero la dificultad en el diagnóstico hace que sea difícil predecir con exactitud cuántos son realmente afectados. ¿Cuáles son las mitocondrias y lo que es la enfermedad mitocondrial (Mito)? Hay miles de mitocondrias en cada célula de nuestro cuerpo, con la excepción de los glóbulos rojos. Funciona como baterías en las células, responsable de producir más del 90% de nuestra producción de energía, mediante la conversión de los alimentos en energía. Cualquier problema con la mitocondria se traducirá en un problema con la producción de energía. La medida en que esto afecta al paciente depende mucho de la proporción de las mitocondrias afectadas y los sistemas del cuerpo donde están dañados. Normalmente, afectará a varios sistemas y órganos del cuerpo, incluyendo el cerebro, nervios, músculos, corazón, hígado, riñones, páncreas, ojos y los oídos. Los síntomas, que padecen cada paciente depende en los sistemas afectados. Para muchos bebés y niños, el pronóstico no es bueno. Las mitocondrias pueden ser clave para entender el Cáncer, el Alzheimer y la Diabetes ... Los médicos ya se han establecido una relación entre la disfunción mitocondrial y el Alzheimer, la diabetes y el cáncer. Las mitocondrias también están asociados con el proceso de envejecimiento; a

medida que envejecemos, la cantidad de mitocondrias que tenemos, disminuye, dando lugar a la falta de energía, pérdida de memoria, dificultad de movimiento, etc Encontrar una mejor manera de diagnosticar Mito En la actualidad, todavía hay mucho que aprender sobre la mitocondria. El hecho de que afectan a todos los sistemas del cuerpo y puede ser la causa de muchas de las enfermedades con que nos escuche de hoy, seguramente significa que la investigación en este ámbito es fundamental. Diagnosticar este tipo de enfermedad es muy difícil y aunque la biopsia muscular se ve todavía como un referente en términos de diagnóstico, los resultados no siempre son fiables y pueden ser no concluyentes. Encontrar una cura Hasta el momento no hay cura - hay muchas vitaminas y suplementos que se pueden tomar para mejorar la calidad de la vida y ayudar a un paciente para preservar y aprovechar al máximo su energía, pero nada para arreglar sus mitocondrias defectuosas. ¿Imagine los beneficios en el futuro si la ciencia y la medicina encontró la manera de trasplantar las mitocondrias defectuosas? Ayudar al paciente a Mito Es difícil ser un paciente Mito. Debido al hecho de que la enfermedad a menudo ataques de múltiples sistemas, la mayoría de los pacientes necesitan visitar una serie de especialistas, a veces en diferentes partes del pais o del mundo. A menudo, los padres tienen que coordinar y informar los diferentes expertos - por ejemplo, informar el endocrinólogo que el niño también tiene retraso del desarrollo o asegurar que el gastroenterólogo saber que el niño responde mal a la anestesia, o

explicar al pediatra que ciertos antibióticos pueden causar sordera. La vida se vuelve un laberinto - la solución para un problema, puede desencadenar otro, es importante tener un buen equipo de médicos que trabajan juntos.

Mi Viaje - ¿Por qué Mito?

Mi hija, Talia nació en junio de 2007. Después de un embarazo difícil, me sentí tan aliviada de mantener mi niña en mis brazos. Sin embargo yo sabía que algo no estaba del todo bien. Talia no cumplió con sus hitos del desarollo y no aumentaba del peso. Aunque, Tália, ha mejorado un montón, hoy, con 3 años sufre de hipotonia generalizada. Cada semana, Talia asiste a fisioterapia, hidroterapia, terapia de caballos (hipoterapia) y logopedia. Mientras que ella come como un típico niño de 3 años de edad, no se pone ningún peso y pesa solo 7 kilos. Cuando pasa por periodos de enfermo, pierde el tono muscular y nuestro único objetivo durante estos períodos de tiempo es centrarse en los alimentos, la comodidad y poco más. Si Tália deja de comer durante más de un día, tenemos que ingresarla en un hospital para hidratarla. La mayoría de los niños pierden el apetito cuando están enfermos, pero para Tália, esta pérdida de apetito puede ser muy peligrosa, hasta que un resfriado común puede llevar a un viaje hospital. Hasta ahora hemos establecido ningún diagnóstico, pero los médicos sospechan Mito - ella ha tenido innumerables pruebas

de sangre e incluso una biopsia muscular, que hasta ahora no nos ha dado ninguna respuesta real. Hemos viajado por el mundo, hemos visto a médicos de Málaga, Barcelona, España y América .Hasta el momento, tenemos pocas respuestas, pero es claro que Tália tiene un problema con la producción de energía. Esto me ha llevado a descubrir el camino de la enfermedad mitocondrial. El futuro Hemos visto cómo las terapias realmente ayudan a Talia y tenemos la suerte de estar rodeados de grandes doctores y terapeutas fantásticos. Vemos la mejora tanto en su desarrollo. Aunque ella tiene retraso en el desarrollo y no puede caminar y hablar, podemos verla tratando de comunicar, empujando su cuerpo todos los días a caminar. Ella se ríe con un brillo en sus ojos y responde tan bien a sus terapeutas, amigos y familiares. Si podemos encontrar una manera de ayudarla con su energía, la ayudaría mucho.

Mitochondrial Awareness Week The 19th September marks the start of an awareness week for Mitochondrial Disease. Mitochondrial Disease is an umbrella term used for a whole branch of metabolic illnesses, based on dysfunction of the mitochondria. It is estimated that 1 in 4000 suffer from some form of Mitochondrial Disease but difficulty in diagnosis makes it hard to predict exactly how many are really affected. What are Mitochondria and what is Mitochondrial Disease (Mito)? There are thousands of mitochondria in every cell of our bodies, with the exception of red blood cells. They are like the batteries of the cells, responsible for producing over 90% of our energy output, by converting food into energy. Any problem with the mitochondria will result in a problem with energy production. The extent to which this affects the patient as a whole depends very much on the proportion of the mitochondria affected and the systems of the body where they are damaged. Typically, when mitochondrial disease strikes, it will affect multiple body systems and organs, including the Brain, Nerves, Muscles, Heart, Liver, Kidneys, Pancreas, Eyes, and Ears. The symptoms therefore can vary depending on which organs are affected. For many infants and children, the prognosis is not good. So why build awareness? Why should we all be interested in finding out more? Well, the function of the Mitochondria and the role that they play within the cell was only first discovered in the 1960s. Research is still very much in its infancy. Mitochondrial Disease can either be genetic, whereby it is part of the DNA blueprint or it can be secondary, where it is caused by another external cause such as toxins from the environment, medications or even other illnesses which lead to weakening of the mitochondria. Mitochondria may be key to understanding Cancer, Alzheimer’s and Diabetes… Links have already been drawn between mitochondrial dysfunction and Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and Cancer. Mitochondria are also

associated with the aging process; as we age, the amount of high functioning mitochondria that we have, decreases, leading to lack of energy, memory loss, difficulty in movement etc. Finding a better way of diagnosing Mito At present, there is still so much to learn about the mitochondria – the fact that they affect all body systems and can be the cause of many of the big illnesses we hear of today surely means that research in this area is instrumental. Even diagnosis is difficult and whilst a muscle biopsy is still seen as a gold standard in terms of diagnosis, the results are not always reliable and can be inconclusive. Finding a Cure As yet there is no cure – there are many vitamins and supplements that can be taken to improve the quality of one’s life and help a patient to preserve and make the most of their energy, but nothing to fix their faulty mitochondria. Imagine the benefits in the future if Science and Medicine found a way of transplanting faulty mitochondria? Help the Mito Patient It is difficult to be a Mito patient. Due to the fact that the disease often attacks multiple systems, most patients need to visit a range of specialists. Often the parent has to put the pieces of the puzzle together – letting the endocrinologist know that the child also has development delay or letting the gastroenterologist know that the child responds badly to anaesthetic, or letting the paediatrician know that certain antibiotics may cause deafness. Life becomes a labyrinth – the solution for one problem, may trigger off another, it is important to have a good team of doctors who will work together.

My Journey – Why Mito? My daughter, Tália was born in June 2007. After a difficult pregnancy, I was so relieved to hold my baby girl in my arms. However I knew that something wasn’t quite right. Tália failed to meet her milestones and failed to gain weight. At 3, she has severely weak muscle tone – whilst she improves daily, Tália attends physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, horse therapy and speech therapy on a weekly basis. Whilst she eats like a typical 3 year old– she doesn’t put on any weight, she weighs 7 kilos and is 3 years old. When sick, she loses muscle tone and our sole aim during these periods of time is to focus on food, comfort and little more. If she stops eating for more than a day, we rush her to hospital for hydration. Most children lose their appetite when ill but even a common cold can lead to a hospital journey. As yet we have no set diagnosis but doctors suspect Mito – she has had countless blood tests and even a muscle biopsy which as yet has not given us any real answers – we have travelled the World dealing with experts from Malaga, Barcelona, UK and America. As yet, we have few answers but Tália has definitely

got a problem with energy production. This has led me to discover the road of Mitochondrial Disease. The Future We have seen how therapies really help Tália and have been blessed to have been surrounded by great doctors and fantastic therapists. We see so much improvement in her development. Whilst she has developmental delay and is unable to walk and talk, we can see her trying to communicate, pushing her body everyday to walk. She laughs with a sparkle in her eye and responds so well to her loved ones. If we can find a way to help her with her energy, it would help so much.

Suicide Corner By Per R Dewar, Sabinillas. UK television presenter Alan Whicker once described the stretch of the A7 highway between San Pedro de Alcantara and Nueva Andalucia as “the craziest road in Europe”. Had he experienced the Sabinillas underpass and what locals call “Suicide Corner” – the traffic circle by Lidls supermarket, I’m sure he would have used the term: “most dangerous”! Heavy vehicles - those thundering ‘Voltrailer’ monsters come easily to mind, coming from the West (Sotogrande) direction reach speeds of what must be well over 100kph through the underpass. From the opposite (Estepona) direction, the 3-lane stretch is like a FI race track! Trying to merge with this lunatic traffic flow is not for the faint hearted, (barring teenage drivers, of course). Pedestrians trying to cross, (Okay, so they are breaking the law,) take their lives in their hands, since some

drivers deliberately change lanes (thinking no doubt it’s some kind of machismo joke) to frighten them. Ironically, when the underpass was built, construction of a pedestrian bridge at ‘Suicide Corner’ was stopped, so the story goes, when residents in an adjacent apartment block complained that it would “encroach on their privacy”. Ah well, that’s life... (Pun intended.)

“Bitch Slap” encabeza el palmarés en la XI Semana Internacional de Cine Fantástico Costa Del Sol - Estepona En un año de enormes carestías presupuestarias, la Semana Internacional de Cine Fantástico de la Costa de Sol Estepona ha demostrado que la coherencia y el buen hacer desempeñan un factor fundamental en la consolidación de un evento de dilatada trayectoria. Gracias al auspicio de verdaderos mitos del género como Paul Naschy, centro de uno de los más amplios homenajes de este certámen, Estepona se ha convertido en referencia ineludible para los fans del género fantaterrorífico “Bitch Slap” ha acaparado las principales categorías, entre las que destacan Mejor Película y Mejor Guión, ambos recogidos por su productor, el veterano Eric Gruendemann. El alemán Uwe Boll, presencia habitual de la sección oficial durante los últimos cinco años, se alzó al fin con el codiciado premio a la Mejor Dirección por su labor en la violenta “Rampage”. La actrices Julia Voth, Erin Cummings y America Olivo, trío protagonista de la laureada “Bitch Slap” vieron

recompensada su labor interpretativa en este divertido exploitation de alto presupuesto, en una decisión del jurado que sólo podría calificarse de audaz e insólita.

Las categorías técnicas, que corresponden a Mejor Fotografía y Mejores Efectos Especiales fueron a parar, respectivamente, a “Reijkavik Whale Watching Masscre” y “Dark House”. El Unicornio al Mejor Dibujante de Comics fue a manos de Juan José Ryp.

Thanks to its association with such legends of the genre as the late Paul Naschy, whose career was celebrated during the festival, Estepona has become a major hit with horror and fantasy fans. Dominating the major categories in the awards was the US film “Bitch Slap” which took both the Best Picture and Best Screenplay awards which were accepted by the film’s veteran producer, Eric Gruendemann.

Germany’s Uwe Boll, who has had a regular presence in the official section for the past five years, won the coveted award for Best Director for his latest film “Rampage”. Actresses Julia Voth, America Olivo and Erin Cummings, shared the Best Performance award for their roles in “Bitch Slap”.

For its part, the award for Best Fantasy TV Series went to “True Blood”, collected by Francisco Rodríguez Prieto on behalf of Canal Plus. Ramón Reina, former director of the festival Fancine was awarded the ASFAAN Prize in honour of his two decades at the forefront of the event.

Valadez firma la puesta en marcha del sistema de control horario a los trabajadores del consistorio El alcalde de Estepona, David Valadez, ha firmado con Abaco C.E. Informaticos, s.l. el suministro del software para el control de entrada y salidas con los responsables de la citada empresa, por un importe de 59.937,16 €. Dado el número de trabajadores y edificios que forman la corporación municipal y la diversidad de horarios, se hace necesario tener un sistema para el control de presencia, entrada y salida y de cumplimiento de los horarios, por parte del personal. Para ello, se ha determinado utilizar unos terminales con lector de reconocimiento de huella dactilar de los empleados para el fichaje, que estarán situados en todos los edificios del Ayuntamiento, situados en el núcleo urbano y en el extrarradio.

El dispositivo estará instalado antes del próximo 31 de diciembre y permitirá la contratación de tres personas. Una vez puesto en marcha, facilitará al Ayuntamiento, de forma automática, llevar un control más exhaustivo de la jornada laboral del trabajador, de forma que se descontará de la nómina las ausencias no justificadas.

Clocking on at the Town Hall The mayor of Estepona, David Valadez, has signed a contract with Abaco C.E. Informaticos SL for the installation of software for the control of timekeeping among employees of the local council. With the large number of employees ranged across a number of buildings and with a diverse range of working hours it has been deemed necessary to install a system to

better monitor timekeeping and reveal unauthorised absences . The system uses fingerprint recognition technology with readers being installed in council buildings and offices throughout the municipality. The system will cost just under 60,000 euros, creating three jobs and is expected to be up and running by the end of the year.

Nuestras bases programáticas serán la continuación del trabajo que venimos realizando, porque Estepona necesita avanzar. Cuento con un equipo de trabajo, sin grandes fichajes, pero sí de un grupo de personas fieles al andalucismo, fieles a su ideología, fieles a su pueblo, Estepona, personas trabajadoras, honestas, de gran valía y lo que es más importante para mí honradas, declaró contundente.

Visit of George & Eileen Carey Alan Maude I first met George Carey when I was a student at Theological College He was a Curate in Islington and part-time lecturer at Oak Hill College. My first impression was that here was a normal human being who happened to be a Priest, a Theologian and a Teacher. He was also young enough to be part of our College football team! It did not matter that he spoke with a southern accent and supported Arsenal - Here was someone I could relate to! Soon Marjorie and I were married and we were helped a great deal by Eileen and George as we began to build our new life. We spent time in their home in London, in Nottingham and several years later in Durham. It is a great joy to Marjorie and I that George and Eileen have agreed to be with us for the first weekend in October to celebrate the

40th Anniversary of my Ordination. Please come and join the celebrations. Eileen and George have a wide experience of life within and outside the Church and it will be well worth bringing along friends who may not normally attend Church, especially to the Open Meeting on Saturday morning.

IV Festival Internacional de Tango en el Teatro Cervantes de Málaga

Agua, Azucarillos y Aguardiente se representará en el Palacio de Congresos

Este Festival está organizado por Producciones Sin Ache Entertainment, y con el auspicio de la Embajada de Argentina en España, el encuentro comenzará el 8 con la actuación de las parejas de bailarines Silvio Grand y Mayra Galante y Claudio y Vito. El sábado 9 la Compañía de Tango Argentino pondrá en escena el espectáculo Le tango,

El próximo 24 de septiembre, La Compañía Lírica Andaluza se presenta en Estepona con un gran espectáculo: la popular Zarzuela de Federico Chueca titulada “Agua, Azucarillos y Aguardiente”, con un amplio despliegue de músicos, actores e interpretes que harán las delicias de todos los asistentes a la función en el Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Estepona a partir de las 21:00 h. La obra está ambientada en el Madrid de finales del siglo XIX y refleja a la clase media empobrecida en contacto con las clases más humildes. Se desarrolla en las proximidades de la Verbena de San Lorenzo, el 9 de agosto, en el paseo de Recoletos. En la obra se citan otras calles, como la Ribera de Curtidores, el Prao, la Plaza de Colón, Lavapiés, Las Vistillas, la Puerta de Alcalá, la Cebá. En la obra aparecen personajes y situaciones del Madrid de la época: aguadores y aguadoras, cigarreras, chulapos y chulapas, manolos y manolas, castañeras, barquilleros, el olor a churros calientes y la limonada en los barreños de barro cocido, niñas jugando al corro mientras las niñeras coquetean con los soldados, etc. Es decir, el Madrid

sentimiento hecho danza, y el domingo 10 se estrenará Copla y tango, una historia de amor y desamor, montaje de Producciones Sin Ache Entertainment. Paralelamente, el Festival ofrecerá una muestra de milongas en un hotel de la ciudad, clases de tango para todos los niveles y una exposición de trajes de tango de todas las épocas, entre otras actividades.

Opera at the Palacio in Estepona The Compañía Lírica Andaluza will be performing the popular Zarzuela “Agua, Azucarillos y Aguardiente” by Federico Chueco at the Palacio de Congresos, Estepona on September 24 from 9 pm. Agua, azucarillos y aguadiente is an opera in the tradition of the Spanish zarzuela, which originated in the seventeenth century and combines music with spoken dialogue. Agua, azucarillos y aguardiente (‘water, sweets and spirits’) was a common cry of street vendors in turn of the century Madrid, and Carrión and Chueca’s most popular sainete - first seen at the Teatro Apolo on 23 June 1897 - evokes its time with matchless

verve. The virtue of Carrión’s unpretentious one-act social comedy lies in the simple, unsentimental thrust of its farcical action. Although the satire is genial enough, the writer was not afraid to hold up the pretentious hypocrisy of the “literary” middle classes to ridicule; and in a world where everyone seems financially up against it, the down-toearth, cynical practicality of the street vendors comes across as comparatively honest. Tickets 26€ are available from El Corte Ingles, online at www.elcorteingles.es or at the box office from 6 pm on the day of the performance.

En la raza beagle los investigadores encontraron otro gen que modifica en las personas el índice de masa corporal y determinadas características del metabolismo. Los investigadores identificaron más de 1.600 genes conocidos y supuestos genes cuya información es traducida en proteínas. Entre ellos hay cinco que ya habían sido reconocidos en estudios previos como especialmente significativos en la cría de perros y tienen que ver con el color y el pelaje. Muchos de los genes al parecer tienen que ver con características visibles de los animales como el color y la textura del pelaje, el tamaño o la estructura ósea. Los científicos aún no pueden decir qué genes fueron influidos exactamente en la cría, ya que en cada uno de los 155 ámbitos hay varios genes El trabajo de PNAS, según sus autores, ayuda además a entender cómo es la evolución a corto plazo, así como el mecanismo de las variaciones moleculares en poblaciones naturales y su diferencia con las artificiales Ronald Rosenfeld D.V.M.

Genetic Mutations in “Designer Dogs” During the last 14,000 years humans have not only domesticated dogs, to become their best friends, they also have artificially selected for “Canis lupus familiaris’ to have the colour, size, body structure, abilities, and even psychological behaviour that their owners like. Now groups of scientists have identified 155 regions in the dogs genome where there are signs of this selection and containing possibly the genes characteristic of each of the 400 breeds. The study, conducted at several U.S. universities came from the analysis of 21,000 variations in DNA sequences in one nucleotide/DNA segment of a group of 275 dogs from 10 different breeds, such as Poodles, German Shepherds, Dachshunds and terriers. In total, the team, led by Joshua M. Akey, University of Washington, have identified 155 regions that have changed in recent centuries, when artificial selection became widely used, in some cases to have breeds adapted to certain tasks (hunting, shepherding, etc.) and in others by pure snobbery. That group included genes that had already been identified as characteristic of some breeds, but also other candidates that had not as yet been studied. This is the case of the association found between the gene HAS2 and wrinkling of the skin of Shar-Pei

Las mutaciones genéticas de los perros ‘de diseño’ Durante los últimos 14.000 años, los seres humanos no sólo han domesticado a los perros, hasta convertirlos en sus mejores amigos. También les han seleccionado de forma artificial para que los ‘Canis lupus familiaris’ tengan el color, el tamaño, la estructura corporal, las habilidades e, incluso, el comportamiento psicológico que les gustaba a sus dueños. Ahora, un grupo de científicos ha identificado 155 regiones en su genoma en las que están las señales de esta selección y que contienen posibles genes característicos de cada una de las 400 razas existentes. El estudio, realizado en varias universidades estadounidenses, partió del análisis de 21.000 variaciones en las secuencias de ADN en un nucleótido de un grupo de 275 perros de 10 razas distintas, como caniches, pastores alemanes, terrier y perros salchicha. En total, el equipo, dirigido por Joshua M. Akey, de la Universidad de Washington, logró identificar 155 regiones que han variado en los últimos siglos, que es cuando la selección artificial tomó auge, en algunos casos para tener razas adaptadas a determinadas tareas (caza, pastoreo, etcétera) y en otras por puro esnobismo. En ese grupo están incluidos genes que ya se habían identificado como característicos de algunas razas, pero también otros candidatos que no habían sido estudiados hasta ahora. Es el caso de la asociación que han encontrado entre el gen HAS2 y el arrugamiento de la piel de los perros Shar-Pei, originarios de China.

dogs, originating in China. Rare mutations in this gene have been identified in humans who suffer a skin disease called mucinosis. In the Beagle, the researchers found another gene that changes in people body mass index and certain characteristics of the metabolism. The researchers identified more than 1,600 genes known and suspected genes whose information is translated into proteins. Among them are five that were already acknowledged in previous studies as particularly significant in the breeding of dogs and have to do with the color and coat.Many of the genes apparently have to do with an animals visible features such as color and texture of the coat, size or bone structure. Scientists still can not say exactly what genes were influenced in breeding, since in each of the 155 areas there are several genes involved.The work, published in the journal, Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, according to its authors, also helps to understand how the short-term evolutionary changes occur, as well as understanding the mechanism of naturally occurring, as opposed to artificial, molecular variation, in natural populations and the differences between them.

Enfermedad de Lyme

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Es un artículo muy interesante sobre una enfermedad muy poco conocida llamada Enfermedad de Lyme, pero que potencialmente es muy fácil de coger. Así que ¡tened cuidado! La enfermedad de Lyme es una infección bacteriana que pasa a los humanos a través de garrapatas infectadas. Estas garrapatas son marrones/ negros, muy pequeñas, insectos en forma de araña que se alimentan en la sangre de los mamíferos, incluyendo los humanos. El síntoma más común de la enfermedad de Lyme es una erupción roja de la piel que se parece similar a la diana de un bordo de dardos. Sin embargo, si la enfermedad de Lyme se queda sin tratamiento, pueden aparecer más síntomas: Una alta temperatura (fiebre) de 38C (100.4F) o más; Dolor de muslos; Dolor de articulación e inflamación, y Síntomas neurológicos, como parálisis temporal de los muslos faciales. Una persona con enfermedad de Lyme no es contagiosa porque la infección se puede entregar solo a través de las garrapatas. ¿Qué tan común es la enfermedad de Lyme? La enfermedad de de Lyme no es una infección común. La Agencia de Protección de Salud estima que hay entre 1,0002,000 casos de enfermedad de Lyme en Gran Bretaña en cada año. Las garrapatas que causan la enfermedad de Lyme se encuentran en áreas de bosque y brezos. Esto porque estos tipos de habitados tienen un número alto de animales que llevan garrapatas, como venado, perros, gatos y ratas. Debido a sus modelos de crianza, la populación de garrapatas es más alta durante el período de primavera tardía y el verano temprano. Previsión Si la enfermedad Lyme se diagnostica en el estado temprano, se puede curar con antibióticos, y la previsión es excelente. La mayoría de las personas van a tener una recuperación dentro de un par de días. Aunque se desarrollan síntomas más avanzados, ellos de costumbre se curan con antibióticos, pero un curso más prolongado será requerido. La mejor manera de prevenirte a ti o a uno de tus miembros de familia de la enfermedad de Lyme es de tomar precauciones razonables cuando estás en áreas conocidas por tener una población alta de garrapatas, y llevar camisas de manga larga y utilizando repelente de insectos. Puedes reducir el riesgo de infección de la siguiente manera: Estar al tanto de las garrapatas y de las áreas donde viven; Llevar ropa adecuada en áreas infestadas con garrapatas ( una camisa de manga larga y los pantalones metidos en tus

calcetines); Utilizar repelentes de insectos; Revisar su piel por garrapatas, especialmente a final del día, incluyendo su cabeza, cuello y los pliegues de la piel (axila, ingle, cintura); Estar seguro de revisar los áreas del cuello y cabeza de sus hijos, incluyendo el escalpo; Revisar que no traes en casa, en tu ropa las garrapatas, y Revisar que los animales no los traen en casa en su pelaje. Como quitar una garrapata Si encuentras una garrapata en tu piel (o en la piel de tu hijo), debes quitarla despacio, agarrándola lo más cerca a la piel posible, preferiblemente con pinzas finas, y tirar lejos de la piel. ¡¡NUNCA utilizar un cigarro encendido, una cerrilla, u aceites volátiles para forzar a la garrapata!! Algunos consultorios veterinarios y tiendas de animales venden aparatos de quitar las garrapatas que no son caros, que pueden servir si está frecuentemente expuesto a las garrapatas. Recuerde que si de improviso tiene algún problema relacionado con su salud: los médicos de SOS Médicos 24HS están conduciendo a lo largo de la Costa del Sol, en el área desde Alcaidesa/Sotogrande hasta Mijas Costa las 24 horas al día.

Run for Moore

A group of locals from the Manilva area set out early on Saturday 11 September on a 7 km sponsored run/walk/ cycle from Sabinillas to Castillo and back to raise funds for charity. This was just one event in a programme of fund raising activities which aims to donate £1500 to the Bobby Moore Bowel Cancer Research fund.

Dusty and friends raise over 3000 € for Animal in Need

The highly talented Katy Setterfield sold out two nights at the Roman Oasis in Manilva with her tribute act ‘Dusty and Friends’. Katy, winner of BBC’s prime time show ‘The One and Only’ with her portrayal of Dusty Springfield, wowed the audience with her live show which included ‘Annie Lennox’, ‘Cher’, and ‘Tina Turner’ for good measure. Supporting performances by Peter Charles and DJ Pete Lane kept the audience entertained into the early hours. With over 3000 euros raised for Animal in Need in support of their La Linea dog refuge, both nights were an unqualified success with people already asking about next year’s show. The organisers would like to thank everyone who helped make the event such a success.

Lyme disease Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread to humans by infected ticks. These ticks are brown/black, very small, spider-shaped insects that feed on the blood of mammals, including humans. The most common symptom of Lyme disease is a red skin rash that looks similar to a bull’s eye on a dart board. However, if Lyme disease is left untreated, further symptoms can follow including: a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or over; muscle pain; joint pain and swelling, and neurological symptoms, such as temporary paralysis of the facial muscles. A person with Lyme disease is not contagious because the infection can only be spread by the ticks. How common is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is an uncommon infection. The Health Protection Agency (HPA) estimates that there are between 1,000-2,000 cases of Lyme disease in the UK each year. The ticks that cause Lyme disease are commonly found in woodland and heath land areas. This is because these types of habitats have high number of tick-carrying animals, such as deer, dogs, cats and mice. Due to their breeding patterns, the tick population is at it is highest during late spring and early summer. Outlook If Lyme disease is diagnosed in its early stages, it can be treated with antibiotics, and the outlook for the condition is excellent. Most people will make a full recovery within a couple of days. Even if more serious symptoms develop, they can usually be cured with antibiotics, although a longer course will be required. The best way to prevent you and your family member from Lyme disease is to take sensible precautions when you are in areas that are known to have a high tick population, such as wearing longsleeved shirts, and using insect repellent. You can reduce the risk of infection by: being aware of ticks and which areas they normally live in; wearing appropriate clothing in tick-infested areas (a long-sleeve shirt and trousers tucked into your socks); using insect repellents; inspecting your skin for ticks, particularly at the end of the day, including your head, neck, and skin folds (armpits, groin, and waistband); making sure that your children’s head and neck areas, including scalps, are properly

checked; checking that ticks are not brought home on your clothes, and checking that pets do not bring ticks into your home in their fur. How to remove a tick If you find a tick on your skin (or your child’s skin), you should remove it by gently gripping it as close to the skin as possible, preferably using fine toothed tweezers, and pull steadily away from the skin. NEVER use a lighted cigarette end, match or volatile oils to force the tick out! Some veterinary surgeries and pet supply shops sell inexpensive tick removal devices, which may be useful if you are frequently exposed to ticks. Remember that should you have any unforeseen problem regarding your health: the doctors from SOS Médicos 24HS are driving along the Costa del Sol, in the area from Alcaidesa/Sotogrande up to Mijas Costa 24 hours a day. Our Contact Numbers are : 951 277 270 or 951 277 272 (to ask for a visit from one of our doctors). Please note!

Costa Advice Bureau Tax declarations for Resident and nonresident persons Many property owners are still avoiding or are not aware that they must make this annual tax declaration. Proprietors who have had their properly for many years are under the impression that making the declarations will mean that they will be presented with a huge tax bill for back payments. This is not the case. If you decide to fulfill this obligation you need not be concerned as you will only be taxed for the previous year. Ignoring this ruling and waiting until the tax authority’ contacts you could result in receiving bills for the previous years. Non residents can file this tax now without waiting for the December deadline.

Endesa and the directive to install a current limiter The company have been sending letters to their consumers insisting that the old meters are fitted with an ICP (Interruptor de Control de Potencia) current limiter. This decree has been put into practice even though the electricity Company has begun fitting new meters in properties and this is to be extended to all households making the old meters obsolete. It is therefore incomprehensible that householders are being made to comply with this rule with the costs associated with the fitting of this device. It may be worthwhile to take into account that Endesa are not allowed to interrupt the electricity supply to properties on public holidays or on any day that the telephone service ‘Attention to the client’ is not available. For those who are still receiving erroneous and incorrect

demands for payments that do not coincide with usage you should ask for the Hoyas de Reclamaciones (complaints book) at any Endesa office. The complaint should be written in Spanish and should be sent to their main office by certified post and a receipt kept.

Yet more changes for registering on the Padron If you have just become acquainted with process described in the preceding article written on this subject, prepare for a change in the rules. The old system of a few years ago is to be reinstated. You were entitled to register on the census before taking out residency. Registering now will entitle you to vote in the May 2011 elections and avail of the many advantages associated with including yourself and your family on the census. The procedure is simple. Present yourself and family to your allocated town hall department with your passports and a copy, title deeds or nota simple if you are a home owner. Tenants need to take along their passports a rental contract and a utility bill in the name of the owner whose name should coincide with the name on the rental agreement. EU residents now are to receive a letter in the posts every second year to advise them of updating their data on the census. Do not rely on this as 3000 letters sent out to residents of in a town in Alicante were lost in the post.

For the 3rd time, the Costa del Sol Business Awards will yet again serve as a tool for the overall business promotion while creating a platform for international business firms. The Costa del Sol has been an emerging business point of southern Spain in which the expat community plays a key role in the overall growth of the region due to its diversity, size and the possible amount of business investments they bring. Looking at the contribution of foreign residents to Costa del Sol business, it has been one of the strategic targets of the Regional Government, Junta de Andalucia, to support international residents in doing business here in Andalucia.

En la Residencia de las Palabras

Lo que sabemos al fin y al cabo

M

e quedo pensando cuando te miro, y en los escenarios de la inteligencia, ya no busco la profundidad de los días. Advierto a la desdicha, le ruego que jamás ponga su llaga en las ventanas de mi carne. Nos quedamos atrapados, quizás yo en las preguntas, tú en las respuestas; porque volvemos siempre a lo mismo, a encontrarnos en el espejo de los intercambios, donde la madurez resbala con suspiros buscando la sencillez de un aliento. Allí estamos, hablándonos el uno al otro, para aprender, sin saber nada, procurando en los rasgos del aire convencer con nuestra conversación al vecindario de las interrogantes. Alguien nos dice: “Os enseñaremos el arma con que matamos vuestros sueños”. Si te pregunto cómo eres, alguien anota en tu mirada lo superfluo, porque un hombre es más que un hombre. Y todavía yo, no me lo creo, el enfado de lo sísmico, el rodar en el flaco hinojo los testimonios imperfectos del ser. Yo sé lo que siento pero no puedo explicarlo, por eso te pregunto; y yo, no quiero la noche oscura y desvelada, la noche que no habla y se suspende sobre un alcaudón ciego; la noche palpitante y tímida que se inunda. Y yo, que no soy

yo, desaparezco. (La física no engaña, es continua.) Porque un hombre es más que un hombre. Y yo, no quiero la noche oscura y desvelada, la noche de la envidia del yo impresionante, tan solo y clausurado. La noche no me habla, se pierde en su montura de estrellas. Un nuevo sentimiento se despierta en una morada de la luna. Porque la noche es intrépida cuando no tiene nombre. La noche escribe como persona infinita, acaso para no morir arrojada en las palabras de otros. La noche nace al verbo como pájaros verdes; y para volar escapa y atrapa el sueño; y un ignoto soplo de crepúsculo mojado en los labios de la vida, reafirma una lluvia humana. Ahora me quedo solo ante tu nombre, y no acierto a tentarlo, no poseo el carácter de aprisionar un mundo aislado, y para tomarlo en la opacidad y las claridades, salgo al valle en esa sonatina. Juntas y en la aurora nuestras palabras son besos que arden para el color. No soy el viento que te busca para secar la humedad de tu cabello. (No soy ni el necio ni el sabio. Puede que sea un poema del astro.) Y no soy para que suene bien el niño que trepando en las flores te lleva a un columpio de perfumes esparcidos, el niño en su memoria de respirar sereno, de su pureza plática. No, no soy el Olimpo de las caracolas que presagian. ¡Me atrevo a abrir la boca para tanta ilusión! Te ofrezco, me ofreces, pero entre ambos, esa repentina mansión de los sentidos: sin ira, oírnos. Y el pensamiento avanza al nuevo amanecer, hasta que al fin una gota de noche tiembla en el pubis del jardín que se complace en tomarnos; porque ya nos conoce el mundo antes de nada; y estamos en el exordio de una vasta y cálida conversación de experiencias.

Miras a la oscuridad, ciego tambor para la luz del espacio, ¿o son tus ojos cerrados quienes cantan y bullen porque al mirar se funden con la noche blanca cuerpos que se aman? La tecla es surtido, un parpadeo y un canto desde el alma que el sonido provoca, el teclado un párpado mediador, ¡oh!, el piano en su cola tiene una luz que cree y yace, yace porque el minuto de la melodía invoca el beso en movimiento. Un rostro y un mundo, y aún te queda más: el agua de la música por tus pies como río colorado: eres tú mismo quien muere y resucita. ¿Oyes? No sólo el sonido sino esa imagen. Las manos se entregan y liberan el fruto. Es más grande el sonido, no más fuerte. Ante ti el piano. El piano es un niño. Y el tambor maleza, riña del tiempo.

El concertista suspira, con soledad y engaño, no se conforma con tomar desde el mundo a la belleza, no se conforma con nacer y morir en la estructura del solfeo: sólo acaba lo que camina solo y no se ama. Sonido viajando a otros lugares. Tocar. Todo el cuerpo ante la anchura, la tarde en el él habla de la vida; prosigue, ¡qué sosiego!, ¡qué lenta el alma rozando las teclas! Salió por fin del hueco de la invocación una melodía. Y todo el mundo calla cuando musita la sangre.

Spanish Inheritance Taxes – Chapter II Following last month’s introduction to Spanish inheritance taxes, this month we are going to clarify 3 important issues which affect the Inheritance taxes to be paid: 1 Importance of Tax residence in Spain 2 No magical ways to avoid Inheritance taxes 3 Special family circumstances

Tax Residence In Spain Should you be living more than 183 days a year in Spain you are legally considered by the Inland Revenue as Tax resident in Spain; but it is really important that everybody who lives permanently in Spain arrange the necessary legal paperwork in order to be officially registered as RESIDENT with the Spanish authorities. First of all, it is necessary to register with the local town Hall of the municipality where you are living. It is called “empadronamiento”. After doing so, it is also convenient registering with the Police authorities and get what is called “certificado de residencia”. Finally it is recommended to register with the Social Security Authorities, so that you can receive medical assistance in case you need it. Should you not arrange your official registration as “resident” in Spain, the taxman could consider you at a later date as being “non resident” which would affect future inheritance Taxes to be paid. It is very important because, with regards to the main home,

there are no inheritance taxes between spouses for those who are tax residents in Spain. This tax exemption is not applicable to non residents, so it is very important to ensure that you are registered as tax resident in Spain in order to take advantage of tax exemptions applicable to residents.

No magical ways to avoid inheritances taxes There are no magical ways to avoid inheritance Taxes. Everything is invented and, unfortunately, tax inspectors are quite clear. You must not place your trust in people recommending magical solutions such as Company structures, fictitious mortgages, change of ownership structure, etc. Many financial companies are trying to sell all these magical formulas to avoid paying Inheritance Taxes but they are often much more expensive than Inheritance taxes themselves and in some cases totally illegal. Each particular case is different and must be studied individually in order to receive the most appropriate Tax solution or advice. For advice on Spanish Inheritance Taxes you must always trust in Spanish professionals duly qualified.

Special family circumstances Nowadays there are many special family circumstances (partners living together and not being legally

married, homosexual partners, etc.). In these particular cases it is essential that the Authorities are aware of these personal relationships. The Inheritance Taxes are lower the closer that relationship is. It is not the same leaving your property to your wife than leaving it to a friend. In the first case there could be a Tax exemption (for tax residents) and in the second case there are a lot of Taxes to be paid. Therefore, it is very important if you are living with your partner (heterosexual or homosexual) but you are not legally married, that you register yourself as “ pareja de hecho” with the Public Registry of your Local Town Hall. By doing so you will be considered legally partners and will be able to take advantage of all benefits and exemptions that Inheritance Law allows to married people. Tax Authorities must know that you are leaving your assets to your partner (and not just a friend or partner). In the next instalment, Chapter III, we will explain the scale of Inheritance Taxes in Andalucía and will advise on what to do when owning assets in Spain. Manilva Solicitors Jose M.

Good news coming from the UK

£€

Always interesting to hear good news coming from the UK and recent revised figures for gross domestic product (GDP) in the second quarter of the year were better for Britain and worse for the US. Britain’s GDP grew by 1.2 percent instead of 1.1 percent originally estimated, while the pace of US expansion was slashed from 0.6 percent to 0.3 percent. Investors did not have the foggiest idea what to do about either figure. Britain’s better than expected number actually provoked a minor sell-off after the announcement. Investors saw the elevated GDP figure almost as an economic swansong. Government austerity measures and the uncertainty of the coalition’s ability to tackle the problems are bound to slow things down – the only question is by how much. As for the weaker US performance, investors had already been primed to expect a downgrade. They were just relieved it was not worse.

A different confusion of cause and effect recently allowed the Japanese yen to strengthen after an announcement that the Bank of Japan (BoJ) would increase its supply of cheap lending from ¥20 trillion to ¥30 trillion. For any other currency it would have been bad news. For the yen it was great: if the authorities in Tokyo were scared, investors needed to stick up on the best safe-haven currency around… the yen. It strengthened by 2.7 percent against the euro and the pound in the following 36 hours. There is talk of the BoJ selling the yen in order to hold it down. However, without co-operation of other central banks (unlikely because they have no vested interest in a more competitive yen) such intervention would probably be effective only in the very shortest term. Another example of how the markets react to information in differing ways. The foreign exchange market is flying. A recent favourite was the Swiss franc, simply as it was the only currency for which nobody had a bad word. It would be no surprise to see a repeat soon. Thankfully the English did manage to beat them in the Euro Qualifiers recently. For the pound against the euro it has been a yoyo effect sometimes its up a moment later its down.

With conflicting information being published by various bodies in the UK concerning the state of the housing market the impact will be very much the same in the coming weeks. At some stage we will possibly start to see a negative impact upon the pound as its dependence upon the housing sector to maintain a strong pound will diminish. During the last couple of weeks the pound has ranged from 1.20ish to just under 1.23, let’s see where the next couple of weeks takes us however it will be more likely to continue within the same range So if you are looking to gain the most for your money why not contact Moneycorp, the foreign exchange specialist who can take care of all your money transfers to and from Spain; however small or large. Their local experts make the process quick, easy and highly cost-effective.

Pensions, health & unemployment British Consulate Pension, Benefit & Healthcare Team Life Certificates What is a life certificate? A life certificate is quite simply a form sent to UK State Pensioners to check their continued eligibility to receive a pension. Sometimes the DWP will send this form to a pensioner if they have lost contact with them, e.g. they have not received a response to other correspondence. For this reason, it is important you update the International Pension Centre with any change in your contact details. What do I do if I receive a life certificate? - First of all, don’t panic! It doesn’t necessarily mean your pension has been stopped. However, if you fail to respond to a life certificate request, your pension may be suspended until the life certificate is returned. - You should complete the certificate in one of two ways: EITHER) Sign the declaration in front of a witness. Please note, the witness must be one of the officials named on the form, otherwise the form may not be accepted in the UK OR) Get a ‘Certificado de fé y vida’ from the local Civil Registry. Search for your local Civil Registry at www.mju.es. If you choose this option, you do not have to have your signature on the UK form witnessed. Just inform the DWP of any changes in your circumstances and send both forms back. The life certificate does come with full instructions on how to complete it and providing you return it within 8 weeks of the date of the letter, you will find there is no disruption to your pension payments.

Accessing healthcare as a ‘dependant’ You might remember from previous editions of the newsletter that those in receipt of a UK State pension or benefit, as well as those who have recently made national insurance contributions in the UK, may be entitled to a form from the UK (now known as an S1), which gives them full, free access to the Spanish healthcare system. But what happens if you are not in receipt of such a pension or benefit, nor are you working and paying into the Spanish system? Just being registered as a resident does not give you the automatic right to free state healthcare in Spain. Well, it is worth bearing in mind that if you are living with someone who is entitled to free healthcare, you may be able

to gain free access to the system as their dependant: If you live with someone who is paying contributions in Spain: Speak to the INSS (Instituto Nacional de la Seguridad Social) to find out if you are eligible to be included as a dependant under Spanish law – www.seg-social.es If you live with a UK State Pensioner: If you are the spouse or civil partner of a UK State Pensioner, call the International Pension Centre (0044 191 218 7777) for a dependant S1 form. If you are an unmarried partner, family member or live with someone you are economically dependant on, contact the INSS to see if you are eligible for free healthcare. If you live with a posted worker or early retiree who has recently paid contributions to the UK: Contact the INSS to find out if you are eligible for free healthcare. NOTE: We are aware that some British nationals are having trouble registering as a dependant on the S1 form of a posted worker or early retiree. We are currently working with the UK and Spanish authorities to resolve this issue. For more information on healthcare please see http://ukinspain.fco.gov. uk or contact your local PBH team.

Means-tested unemployment benefit If you have worked and paid contributions in Spain, you may be entitled to unemployment benefit if you lose your job. However, what many people don’t realise is that when the contributions-based benefit runs out, if you are still looking for work, AND on a low income AND have family responsibilities (for example, you are supporting a spouse or dependant children) OR are over 45, you may continue to be entitled to benefit. This benefit is called subsidio de desempleo por agotamiento de la prestación contributiva and is a means-tested unemployment benefit available through INEM. For more information, visit www. sepe.es. You can contact the British Consulate Pension, Benefit and Healthcare team at: Apto. de Correos 360 29080 Malaga Or: Tel: (+34) 95 235 2300 Fax: (+34) 95 235 9211 E-mail: Malaga.Consulate@fco.gov.uk

A Healthier Life

JoJo France and Claudia Norris Welcome to the new health, nutrition and fitness column. This month Personal Trainer JoJo France and Nutritional Therapist Claudia Norris are looking into weight loss. 1 in 4 people are obese and this number is escalating. Many illnesses offer no cure, but with the right fitness and food, obesity can be a thing of the past

The Resident - www.theresident.es

The Nutritional Therapist Clients often come to me to lose weight. Unfortunately it’s not always as simple as ‘eat less and exercise more’. It’s also not just food cravings and portion sizes that get in the way. So what are some of the key underlying issues? Hormones like insulin and cortisol control how much sugar we have in our bloodstream. If we eat a diet high in sugar (eg processed foods, white bread/rice), we are likely to have a blood sugar imbalance with hormones working overtime to keep blood sugar levels within safe limits. With sugar flooding the bloodstream, the body isn’t inclined to burn existing fat stores, it has all the energy it needs (even though you may feel exhausted). Years of dieting can slow metabolism (the rate at which we burn calories) which can affect thyroid hormones. When thyroid hormones are out of kilter, weight loss can seem like an almost impossible task but with the right nutrition and exercise, it’s possible to increase metabolism. Food sensitivities can cause bloating, fluid retention and inflammation. The most common culprits are wheat, dairy and soy. Symptoms I look for are: bloating, digestive problems, blocked sinuses, frequent colds/ sneezing, asthma, food cravings (eg for cheese, fresh bread or pasta rather than sugar), migraines, itchy skin/ rashes, and dark circles under the eyes. I have seen dramatic weight loss from cutting out the offending culprit for three months.

The Personal Trainer This month I’m going to give you the top 8 ‘cardio exercises’ this means your heart rate will rise, you should get hot and sweaty and you will burn off calories. 1 Running- a great activity that can be done anyone, all that is needed are a good pair of running shoes. Add in a few hills or even a sprint or 2 and you can burn off in approx 30 mins =300 calories 2 Walking- if running is not for you then a brisk power walk, squeeze your butt and swing your arms, may be add some hills or even some interval jogs, aim for a 30 mins walk =150180 calories 3 Cycling- A fantastic outdoor exercise, it could even be a family activity, or for a bigger cardio challenge, try indoor cycling, often known as ‘Spin or Bike’ the harder you have to pedal the more calories you will burn. A great winter option. A 1 hour Spin classes =700 calories 4 Rowing-This is a great all over workout, arms ,legs and heart all in one workout….the harder and faster you row- may be not something you would do everyday- but a great calorie burner…aim to row for time and distance, then aim to beat that time every time you row. 30 mins =300 calories 5 Cross Trainer- A great alternative to running, it is less impactful on the joints; you can also get a great arm workout too. A great preparation exercise for skiing too 6 Aerobics or Bums and Tums- A great workout to challenge many areas of the body – a high intensity class can burn off 300 calories in 30 mins- a good class will play great music and it should leave you feeling exhilarated. 7 Modern Jive- this is a combination of jive, salsa and rock and roll, an adult class and no partner needed. For 2 hours you will be taught a routine of 5 – 6 moves, by the end of the class even the non dancers will know the routine. It’s a great social workout and suitable for anyone, they happen up and down the coast for more details call Colin on 635 717 211 8 Swimming-A full body workout with no impact, breast stroke for 30 mins =400 calories.. Aim for 3 workouts a week, aim to work harder on each training session (this is how we grow fitter and stronger) after 6-8 weeks change your program. REMEMBER to warm up and cool down and stretch Consult your doctor before starting any new exercise programme. Drink plenty of water, before during and after your workout.

Baby blankets for Costa Del Sol Special Baby Unit Another underlying issue is neurotransmitter imbalance. Neurotransmitters (NT) are chemical messengers in the brain. When we eat too many processed foods the brain releases a NT called dopamine which gives a feeling of pleasure. This pleasure can be addictive. Tolerance builds, increasing the amount of food consumed (usually high sugar carbohydrates) which can lead very quickly to binge eating. Weight control is more complex than the glib response of eat less. If the underlying issues are not identified and treated correctly, it will always be a battle to lose weight. Getting to the root cause can make weight loss simple and life-long.

Eileen Watt of Hacienda Guadalupe recently donated 16 crocheted baby blankets to the Costa Del Sol Hospitals’ Special Baby Unit. Eileen took up crocheting when she learned that she was to become a Grandmother for the first time. She taught herself the basic stitches and learnt more complicated patterns as time went on and has now become a very keen crocheter. The baby blankets were presented to the hospital consultant in charge of the unit and a senior nurse. Eileen would like to carry on crocheting and make further donations to other worthy charities. If you have any spare or unwanted balls of wool or want to give a small cash donation for the purchase of wool please take it to the Los Ninos charity shop (next to the English Bookshop) in Sabinillas where Eileen works as a volunteer.
